All podcasts

I have enjoyed these podcasts so much. Please do not let the choices of one man destroy a ministry so vital in these times where we are too prone as Christians to look to the man instead of the Savior. Your podcasts on vilification were so good. I have voted Jesus for the last two elections and as I isolate I am reminded along with many of my friends that we have to keep our eyes on “who our help comes from” . God will use this suffering time for this ministry to plant your feet even more firmly in the gospel.I am praying for all of you. I want you to know that for rape and domestic violence survivors like me I am proud that you have come to acknowledge the truth. If you had not it would have a detrimental effect on our recovery from this news. You see each time a trusted person falls we relive a part of our own trauma. Take care as you recover and know that God’s message is still the same!

Amazing

Thank you for bringing these topics to our conscious. I really needed to hear the message on Forgiving the Unforgivable.
