Voice to the blind

So thankful for the wise, God-honoring, eye-opening conversations Jemar dives into. My introduction to his voice was through The Color of Compromise. When I now listen to this podcast, I not only hear an intelligent, thoughtful discourse of today’s headlines and issues, but I also hear a heart for God and his people. As my eyes are opening to the injustice and hurt all around me, I believe that I can trust Jemar’s research and opinions to be after the ultimate goal of God’s glory. While I know many have lived this journey lifetimes before me, as a new pilgrim on the walk to justice for all, I’m thankful for Jemar’s guidance. Prayers of blessing and endurance galore to this great brother in Christ!

Jerry Falwell for Liberal Evangelicals

This is equally as destructive and unbiblical as the stuff at the opposite end of the evangelical spectrum. If you are looking for nuance, look elsewhere.

Democratic talking points with a Christian front

This podcast is merely a counter-reaction towards republicanism and its association with Christianity. Christianity is too radical, compassionate, and authentic to sit well in either party. If you are looking for fairness, balance and truth look elsewhere.
