    Redeemed: My Journey After Abortion

    Did you know that African Americans comprise of only 12% of the American population, but black women account for 40% of all abortions in the United States? The number one killer in the black community is not police brutality, drugs, or black-on-black crime. It’s the intentional killing of a human life inside the womb. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Toni McFadden explains that she aborted her baby when she was 18, scared and alone because she believed the abortion industry’s lies. After turning to Christ in college, she committed to chastity until marriage. Today, Toni and her husband, who was the father of her aborted baby and came back into her life years later, have four beautiful children. She now serves as a compassionate and bold voice for the voiceless.

    A Christian Response to Homosexuality - Part 2

    On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. Christopher Yuan recounts his former lifestyle of homosexuality, drug use, and drug dealing. During that time, he had exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and was serving the creature rather than the Creator. Ultimately, it was his arrest, prison sentence, and HIV+ diagnosis that served as a massive wake-up call, resulting in Christopher giving his life to the Lord. After reading the Bible, he discovered that God’s unconditional love did not mean unconditional approval of his sinful behavior, and he realized that his identity must be found in Christ alone.

    A Christian Response to Homosexuality - Part 1

    At the tender age of nine, Dr. Christopher Yuan was exposed to pornography. That fantasy life led to his first homosexual encounter at the age of 16, and an ongoing attraction and lifestyle that persisted throughout high school, college, the Marine Corps Reserves, and dental school. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Christopher reveals how the Lord got his attention during his six-year prison sentence for selling drugs. His mother, Angela, earnestly prayed for him, fasting every week for eight years. When Christopher called his mother from his jail cell, she showed him God’s kindness which led him to repentance (Romans 2:4).

    The Case for Heaven - Part 2

    By his own admission, Lee Strobel was once a narcissistic, drunken, self-absorbed atheist. When his wife, Leslie, became a believer, he wanted a divorce. After two years of trying to disprove Christianity, the "Chicago Tribune" newspaper reporter was overwhelmed by the avalanche of evidence, and ultimately gave his life to the Lord. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Strobel continues discussing his new book and film, "The Case for Heaven", which takes a look at evidence of the afterlife and answers poignant questions concerning what happens when we leave this life. After having almost died, himself, 10 years ago, Strobel interviewed one of his heroes, evangelist Luis Palau, who was dying of stage four cancer at the time. Palau offered invaluable advice -, "No one will ever regret being courageous for Christ!"
