    Following Jesus in a New Babylon

    Following Jesus in a New Babylon

    How are our kids actually living out their faith in a post-Christian world? David Kinnaman and Mark Matlock, authors of "Faith for Exiles," explain the difference between the four types of spiritual exiles: "nomads" or lapsed Christians, habitual church goers, prodigals who have left the faith behind, and resilient disciples-those with a vibrant and robust faith. Together they remind parents of the correlation between parents who are on fire for the Lord with a vibrant faith and kids who spiritually follow in their footsteps.

    How Are Screens Influencing Us?

    Authors David Kinnaman and Mark Matlock talk about the challenges youth face spiritually as they navigate all the opposing views and opinions of the spiritual Babylon we're living in. Kinnaman, who has been with Barna Research Group for 25 years, explains that the gap between Christians and non-Christians is growing, and our youth face a large chasm from which to interpret their faith. With the constant drizzle of news and information, they are feeling more anxiety and fear. Together Kinnaman and Matlock explain how parents can help their children use technology wisely.

    Love Is Tenacious and Committed

    Love Is Tenacious and Committed

    Dave and Ann Wilson interview Bob Lepine about the qualities of biblical love from 1 Corinthians 13. Love is more than a feeling, and there really is a kind of love that "never fails." But how can a spouse bear and endure all things when things feel unbearable? How can a person believe all things when his/her spouse is deceitful? And how can we avoid enabling wrong behavior, including physical and emotional abuse, as we pursue a marriage that goes the distance?

    Love Is Virtuous and Honest

    Love Is Virtuous and Honest

    Bob Lepine along with hosts Dave and Ann Wilson continue their discussion of agape love found in 1 Corinthians 13, a passage that reveals the most common cracks found in marriage relationships. What exactly does it mean to "rejoice in the truth," and why is it so vital to a relationship? What do you do if your spouse isn't interested in pursuing a virtuous and honest relationship? And how should you approach your spouse with areas where you've been deceitful in the past?

    Love Is Humble

    Love Is Humble

    Favorite love songs can capture the heart and stick in the mind for decades. But they don't usually capture God's definition of real love. FamilyLife Today hosts Dave and Ann Wilson sit down with Bob Lepine to discuss 1 Corinthians 13:4 on why humility is such a key feature of biblical love. The kind of love that forms the foundation of a Christ-centered marriage. A love that is so counter-cultural, the early church actually invented a new word for it. Learn how to get a PhD in this kind of love and turn away from your default setting as a human being - self-centeredness.
