Fathered By God

CoffeeIn this episode we have our friend John come by and discuss the book “Fathered By God,” by John Eldridge. This book discusses the path to manhood that everyman takes. We start of by discussing how all men have been wounded by someone or something, but it is through those struggles that we rise up and become men. All men go through stages in life, like the warrior phase and the love phase. Come hear more about this book.

This is a description of the book from iTunes.

“There is a path leading to authentic manhood, cut by men who have gone before us, sons following in the footsteps of their fathers, generation after generation. There are perils along the trail, even disasters all the more reason to rely on the guidance of a Father who has gone before.”

But in an age when true fathers are in short supply, how do you find the path to manhood? How do you steer clear of the dangers?

John Eldredge calls men back to a simple and reassuring truth: “God is our Father. In life’s trials and triumphs, God is initiating boys and men through the stages of manhood from Beloved Son to Cowboy to Warrior to Lover to King to Sage.”

Stop Singing Louder

In Europe, during War World II, Jews would be forced onto trains and then shipped to concentration camps. There, they would be murdered. As the train traveled on, it would pass by Christian churches that knew where the train was headed. As the noisy train passed on, the church would say “Sing louder,” to drown out the reminder of death as it passed by. Today, we do the same thing when it comes to abortion. We allow the culture to change the words of the reality of abortion. We, as Christians, allow the world to call it “a choice,” “women’s health,” “a clump of cells,” instead of calling it what it truly is…Murder!

We, at the Laymen’s Cup, are pro-life. What that means to us is that we believe in supporting a child from the moment of conception, to the the moment of death. We want to support the child, the mother, the father in all aspects of life. That is why we have teamed up with the East Lincoln Pregnancy Care Center. They counsel women who are at a moment of criss when they find out they are pregnant. They tell the truth in giving their options. If the woman decides to abort the child, then they are there to counsel her through the process in the Gospel as well. The have programs for father too! Please go check out their website. http://www.eastlincolnpcc.org.

We are teaming up to support them. We will be attending the dinner that was mentioned on the show on April 6th. If you’d like to support the PCC, you can give directly to them, or if you donate to the show, through our support page, we will donate everything we raise from now until then to the center.

Holly mentioned several links tonight. Here is the link to a story about the history of Pro-life.

She mentioned the book, “Defenders of the Unborn” by Daniel Williams.

Also, and this is important, the Center is in danger of losing their grant called The Maternal Health Grant. If you are in North Carolina please call your state senators and ask them to support this grant.

A.C.T.S.

Is there are a way we are supposed to pray? Are there certain words, or patterns we are to use? In this episode we discuss prayer. A.C.T.S. is a model we use to pray that goes along with the model Jesus gave  us in Matthew 6. If you are a follower of Christ, you know that we are to pray, that is not the question, but how are we to do it?

Shots Fired!

Can we stand on the Word of God? We can say without a shadow of a doubt that we know God’s word is true and perfect. In the second portion of this show, we shut the door on this topic. We affirm that the Bible is true, and God has preserved his word for us today. In every aspect of life, science, history, faith, family, you can trust the Word of God, and know that it attains everything we need for salvation.
