Election 2020 – How Can Christians Vote Biblically?

Tuesday, November 3, is election day 2020 in the United States. We’ll not only be voting for President of the United States, but also for other local, state, and national leaders. Voting is a privilege, and, for U.S. citizens, a right. So, how should Christians vote? What are some of those biblical principles that should guide our voting? Michelle and Amy go to Scripture to encourage you to use your vote as a godly influence by voting according to biblical principles.

Why Do We Celebrate Reformation Day?

Did you know that October 31 is Reformation Day? It’s a time when Christians recognize and even celebrate a huge, game-changing event in our history more than 500 years ago: Reformation Day commemorates the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Yet many Christians today are unaware of this landmark incident in their heritage which birthed the Protestant church. In this episode, Michelle and Amy discuss the commemoration of one of the most important events since the closing of the canon of Scripture.

Christians: When Halloween Comes Knocking

Halloween is a multi-billion dollar celebration marked by witches, ghosts and goblins, candy and parties.

Not all Christians take part in Halloween. Some have taken a step back to rethink this tradition, and they have changed how they look at Halloween. Others say they honor God through Halloween by making it a Christian outreach — a time to share the Gospel with the lost. Still other Christians say we have the freedom in Christ to dress up in costumes, attend secular or church-based festivals, and take their children trick-or-treating.  In this episode, Michelle and Amy take a look at where these traditions come from and what the Bible has to say about Christians and Halloween.

The Trap of Entitlement

Entitlement is the belief that we are deserving of privileges or special treatment, either from God or from the world around us. It says “you owe me,” and a growing number of people are having tantrums when they perceive that other people are standing in the way or blocking whatever they think is rightfully theirs. Do we think we deserve the so-called normal that we had before 2020? Do we expect that things will settle down anytime soon? Hold on to those expectations loosely, because today we are talking about how this new normal of entitlement in our culture is creeping into the Christian mentality.
