Informed Radio’s Interview with writer and director/ Paco Arango of “The Healer” Release date Sept. 28, 2018 “A Must See Fillm”

September 28, 2018

 

A great interview with writer/director Paco Arango of the new movie coming out today "The Healer"..This is a must see movie for the whole family.

British actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen (NBC’s “Dracula,”  “World Without End”) will star in “The Healer,” a feel-good drama marking Spanish director Paco Arango’s follow-up to his standout 2011 debut “Maktub” that will be produced by Enrique Posner (“Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!” “Pan’s Labyrinth,” ”Justin and the Knights of Valor”).

Based on what Posner describes as a “highly personal original script,” “The Healer” is in itself a highly singular and inspiring project, yoking Arango’s love of filmmaking and his continuing life battle to help children fight cancer:

Here’s The Deal with Larry Tomczak Re: ” 5 Reasons to Be Extremely Skeptical of Judge Kavanaugh’s Accuser “

"... there is nothing new under the sun. Is there a matter where it is said, 'See, this is truly new'? Long ago in the past every matter has already been in our midst" (Eccl. 1:9b-10).

The Bible records the factual and outrageous tale of a woman, Mrs. Potiphar, and her attempt to derail the promotion of an exemplary man of character. He was a handsome and most trusted official with important duties providentially being prepared for greater responsibilities as a statesman serving the entire nation.

This married and manipulative woman hatched a scheme to falsely accuse this man of serious sexual misconduct. She stirred up grave trouble for Joseph by boldly and emotionally lying that he had attempted to rape her. Her wickedness cost him his reputation, position and landed him in jail.

Thank God, in that episode things worked out for the good after the accused endured lengthy unjust suffering and disgrace, but this is not always the case. In the current situation involving Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, multitudes like the president and I want to be respectful to his accuser, affording her the opportunity to speak. But by way of reminder, we must do so with a biblical worldview upholding our time-honored system of American justice and due process of law.

Informed Radio’s Interview with Author Erica Wiggenhorn Re: “The Unexplainable Church”

Informed Radio’s Interview with Author Erica Wiggenhorn Re: “The Unexplainable Church”

September 23, 2018

A refreshing interview with Erica Wiggenhorn, the author and teacher of "The Unexplainable Church"

Frustrated with the watered-down, “light” Bible studies that are all too common, Erica Wiggenhorn wanted to write a study that went deep. She wanted to take readers verse-by-verse through a whole book of the Bible, offering theological and historical comments in each lesson while remaining practical and relational.

The Unexplainable Church is the result, and it offers readers two great takeaways. It will teach them by example how to study the Bible deeply, and it will challenge them toward critical life-change: submitting their will to the mission of Jesus, who gives life its fullest meaning.

The message of The Unexplainable Church is that the early church didn’t grow because Peter and Paul were so amazing, but because average people were transformed by God and brought together in His work. This 10-week inductive study of Acts 13–28 will sweep readers into the great drama of the Kingdom, inspiring them to live together in the power of the Spirit and accomplish what could never be done alone.

Here’s The Deal With Larry Tomczak Re: Could the 12 Books That Transformed My Life Change Yours?

Here’s The Deal With Larry Tomczak Re: Could the 12 Books That Transformed My Life Change Yours?

September 18, 2018

“Larry, can you send me a list of the most influential books that God used to shape your life?”

Missionaries who risk their lives daily in a foreign land sent me this request. My wife and I spent 3 1/2 hours with them in our home, and this humble couple who challenge me incredibly deserved a well-thought-out response.

Celebrating a birthday this week plus soon commemorating 47 years in vocational ministry, it seemed like an excellent time to recall the books that revolutionized my life.

The Christian and His Reading

“Please bring with you … the books, especially the manuscripts” (2 Tim.4:13, PHILLIPS).

Paul’s counsel to Timothy doubtless had reference to the Old Testament Scriptures but has application for other areas of reading as well. With his life drawing to a close, the apostle desired to invest his last season of life in continued growth and study, a learner to the very end. May that be our magnificent obsession too.

The Book of Ecclesiastes, penned by King Solomon, humanity’s wisest man, tells us, “Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness to the flesh” (Eccl.12:12b). Therefore, it behooves us to be selective in our reading. Francis Bacon, the brilliant statement from the 16th century, reminds us, “Reading makes a learned man; speaking a skillful man; writing, an exact man.”

 

 

 

 

John Wesley had a passion for reading. Most of it was done while riding his horse! He propped up books on his saddle which enabled him to get through hundreds of volumes on a wide range of subjects.

“Leaders are readers” is the classic exhortation motivating us to engage in fellowship with great minds and those of exemplary character and fruitful lives. Remember the challenge, “You will be the same person you are today in a few years except for the company you keep and the books you read.”

Charles H. Spurgeon counseled his students: “Master those books you have. Read them thoroughly … a student will find that his mental constitution is more affected by one book thoroughly mastered than by 20 books he has merely skimmed. Little learning and much pride come of hasty reading … in reading let your motto be “much, not many.”

So what are the top 12 books God used to mold me as a man of God? After sacred Scripture, here’s my list, not necessarily in any order of importance.

Informed Radio’s Interview with author Bob Fabey of “Not My Jesus”

Informed Radio’s Interview with author Bob Fabey of “Not My Jesus”

September 14, 2018

A critical yet humorous look at how Jesus fits into our cultural milleau and how Christians are called to respond.

Not My Jesus
Embrace your sacred role in a changing world

“Who do you say that I am?”—Jesus of Nazareth

Jesus had dreadlocks! Jesus had blue eyes. Jesus would never say THAT!

Everyone claims to know something about Jesus. But they are likely incomplete. Jesus was judgmental! He called people names, and made fun of others! If you don’t know him this way, you should. Understanding who he is—and who he isn’t—is the key to knowing ourselves and how we are to live.

Not My Jesus is a humorous, yet poignant look at faith, culture, and life. Using everything from movies to Tweets, Bob Fabey helps us to think about how we view Jesus, the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, and how we are called to live.
In this book you will...
•Identify the way you and others primarily view Jesus
•Get a Biblical overview of who he really was (it’s not what you think!)
•Discover the sacred role you play
•Gain practical ways to live in light of who Jesus was

Are you ready to confront your Jesus and embrace your sacred role?

Here’s The Deal with Larry Tomczak Re: “5 Non-negotiables To Finish Well”

Here’s The Deal with Larry Tomczak Re: “5 Non-negotiables To Finish Well”

September 11, 2018

Is it just me, or are you aware of how many leaders and regular Christians seem to be falling by the wayside? Pastors committing suicide, resigning because of sexual escapades, “throwing in the towel” from discouragement or confessing they’ve just lost their passion for vocational ministry, people committed in local churches for decades simply dropping out and drifting in passivity.

John Calvin, one of the fathers of the Reformation, said in his dying hour, “All that I have done has been of no value. The wicked will gladly seize on the word. But I repeat it again, all that I have done is of no value.”

Have you ever felt like him? Can you identify with his feelings of failure and deep discouragement?

At the end of our lives, we don’t want to reflect back like John Calvin and feel regret and remorse. We want to finish well and full of hope like the apostle Paul. Let’s remember that if we want to finish the course and keep the faith, we’ve got to fight the good fight every single day. “For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, and I have kept the faith.” (2 Tim. 4:6-7).

In my room, I have a plaque with challenging words to remind me to continue running the race when I have setbacks: “Failure is never fatal and success is never final.”

What can keep us on course in our Christian life? Starting is easy, but sticking is hard! I believe a quality decision to be obedient in five areas is essential if we’re to finish as strongly as we started.

Informed Radio’s Interview with Evangelist/Author Jay Lowder Re: Suicide, No More “Hush-Hush”

Informed Radio’s Interview with Evangelist/Author Jay Lowder Re: Suicide, No More “Hush-Hush”

September 11, 2018

Another wonderful interview with Jay Lowder of Harvest Ministries. 

Jay and I discuss all the particulars surrounding this "Hush-Hush" issue of suicide and what can be done? What are the signs? How can we be free to discuss and why we should discuss. Yes, even in our churches and ministries.

Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.

Each year, more than 41,000 individuals die by suicide, leaving behind their friends and family members to navigate the tragedy of loss. In many cases, friends and families affected by a suicide loss (often called “suicide loss survivors”) are left in the dark. Too often the feelings of shame and stigma prevent them from talking openly.

Once-Suicidal Evangelist Shares His Story to Help Others During National Suicide Prevention Month
 
Jay Lowder provides resources for recognizing warning signs
 

September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and Jay Lowder, international evangelist and founder of Jay Lowder Harvest Ministries, wants to share his story in hopes that it may help prevent another from ending his or her own life.

 

The past year has been marked by a number of high-profile suicides, including the deaths of Chef Anthony Bourdain, Designer Kate Spade and Musician Avicii. Suicide is a leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and on the rise. The CDC found suicides increased by more than 30 percent from 1999 to 2016.  

 

"While I'm grateful for the emphasis on suicide prevention in September, this is a topic that needs to be addressed every day," said Lowder, who is author of "Midnight in Aisle 7." "We have an epidemic on the rise. Self-violence is without prejudice and affects people from every race, ethnicity, economic status and gender. No one is immune, and until we get serious about creating an open environment of discussion, we will continue to see people fall victim."

Informed Radio’s Interview with Dr. Robert Jeffress Author of the new book “Choosing The Extraordinary Life”

Informed Radio’s Interview with Dr. Robert Jeffress Author of the new book “Choosing The Extraordinary Life”

September 8, 2018

What an honor to speak with and interview Dr. Robert Jeffress, the Pastor of 1st Baptist Dallas, Texas and discuss his latest book "Choosing the Extraordinary Life" being distributed through all major booksellers, throughout the world Find it Here

The average adult works 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year, for at least 30 years of his or her life. Outside of the hours spent working and taking care of children, mowing the lawn, grocery shopping and numerous other menial but necessary tasks consume the remaining time. But what if there was more to life than the humdrum rhythms of ordinary days?

 

Best-selling author and pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress wants readers to know that there is more—an extraordinary life is not only possible, but it’s ready and waiting. In his upcoming book, Choosing the Extraordinary Life: God’s 7 Secrets for Success and Significance (Baker Books, September 4, 2018), Jeffress shows readers God’s roadmap to living an extraordinary life full of purpose and meaning.

 

“The secret to an extraordinary life is understanding God’s purpose for our lives and then living it, “ writes Jeffress. “When we pursue God’s purpose, He will transform our ordinary existence into an extraordinary life. Nothing could be more significant than that.”

In Choosing the Extraordinary Life, Jeffress examines the life of Elijah, tracing Elijah’s transformation from ordinary to extraordinary and providing the seven secrets of success and significance that Christians must embrace in order to experience the incredible life that God promises.  #drrobertjeffress #extraordinarylife #hope #faith #significance #robertjeffress #pastorrobertjeffress #choosing #succe

September 6, 2018

In the last election, the number one issue was immigration and the controversial question to building a wall. To this day, it remains the central issue and there is much confusion and controversy! What does the Bible teach on this most important subject?
