    Martyn Iles - 'The Good Society' is Worse than 'Safe Schools'

    Martyn Iles - 'The Good Society' is Worse than 'Safe Schools'

    This podcast from Martyn Iles, CEO of Australian Christian Lobby, exposes components of The Good Society School Curriculum which provides a view on sexuality, gender and identity from an anti-Christian worldview. Some of the material has been sourced from the Safe Schools Coalition.  This is important listening especially for parents of school aged children.

    Chase Kuhn and Akos Balogh - Caring for Our Girls In A Sexualised Society

    Chase Kuhn and Akos Balogh - Caring for Our Girls In A Sexualised Society

    In our last podcast we listened in to a discussion between Akos Balogh (CEO of The Gospel Coalition Australia) and Chase Kuhn (Director of the Centre for Christian Living) about their concerns for their sons and how to raise them to treat women well. Balogh wrote a follow-up blog post / letter addressed to his daughter about how to navigate this sexualised society. Today's podcast episode is a discussion of that letter. Balogh and Kuhn discuss this issue as fathers and theologians, focusing on the value of finding our identity in Christ. This podcast provides practical ways in which Christian men can help support their daughters as they grow and develop, and also support and care for their wives and other women.

    Chase Kuhn and Akos Balogh - Treating Women Better

    Chase Kuhn and Akos Balogh - Treating Women Better

    Our culture is very confused when it comes to relationships between the sexes. The headlines are all too frequent about sexual abuse and domestic violence. In today’s episode, we listen to an interview Chase Kuhn did with Akos Balogh for his Centre for Christian Living podcast. It’s such a helpful interview on how men can relate to women in godly ways and raise their sons to do the same. We’re thankful to Chase and the CCL for granting permission to republish the interview here and we hope you find it helpful.
