This week on In The Market with Janet Parshall we took a look at the potential for abuse, both emotionally and spiritually when narcissism takes up residence. We took a look at ‘bumper sticker theology’ and explained why trite answers aren’t sufficient in post-truth world. We updated you on and important religious liberty case and heralded the opening of a new cultural research center lead by one of America’s preeminent researchers. The entertainment industry remains the most powerful influence in culture today so we learned how to pray effectively for those who serve in that industry. We learned of more threats from the Communist Chinese government. Today, on Open Phones, our dynamic couple will share their take on some of the other stories making headlines this week.
Join us as we learn how to pray for those whom God has called into the most influential area of our culture – entertainment. How should we pray for both believers and non-believers in that powerful industry? Then, China is always in the news, but now more than ever. We will hear some breaking stories on the Communist regime from one of D.C.’s most respected journalists. Plus, we bring you some headlines of the day.
Join us with a full hour of news, starting with the headlines of the day. We then give you an update on a First Amendment case involving a high school football coach and his desire to pray. We round out the hour with an announcement of the creation of the nation’s premier cultural research organization. Get the news of the day from a biblical perspective.
"Smile, God loves you." "Just have faith." "It's not my place to judge." Christian clichés abound. But is there anything to this bumper sticker theology? Today our guest examines 10 overused statements to uncover timeless biblical truth regarding social justice, sin, loving others, prayer, God's goodness, and more. Learn how to better ‘contend for the faith’.
Why does narcissism seem to thrive in our churches? We've seen the news stories and heard the rumors. Maybe we ourselves have been hurt by a narcissistic church leader. It's easy to throw the term around and diagnose others from afar. But what is narcissism, really? And how does it infiltrate the church? Our guest has been counseling pastors with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, as well as those wounded by narcissistic leaders and systems, for over twenty years. He knows firsthand the devastation narcissism leaves in its wake and how insidious and painful it is. He joins us to take a close look at narcissism, not only in ministry leaders but also in church systems. He offers compassion and hope for those affected by its destructive power and imparts wise counsel for churches looking to heal from its systemic effects. He will also offer hope for narcissists themselves—not by any shortcut, but by the long, slow road of genuine recovery, possible only through repentance and trust in the humble gospel of Jesus.
