Many people have resigned themselves to the “reality” that our society is not only violent, but will continue to escalate even more so. As a student of the Bible, I know that when people do things God’s way, blessings follow. The opposite is true when they use the ways of the world.
The Bible instructs us to make our petitions known to God — to pray without ceasing. However, there a lawful way to pray so as to glorify God, and ways that do not. In this Kingdom-driven Family Podcast, my guest, Cathey Brown, and I discuss some current practices when it comes to prayer meetings and how believers share prayer requests.
Much of the conflict in society stems from a systematic breakdown of the Biblical family. Even in Christian circles, after years of investment in the lives of their children, parents are often at a loss as to why their influence wanes. Is a generation gap inevitable?
In this Out of the Question Podcast: Why Don’t My Children Listen to Me Anymore?, my co-host Charles Roberts and I discuss the present weakness of the family.
“The Christian faith once meant that a believer responded to a dark world by actively working to bring God’s grace and mercy to others, both by word and by deed. However, a modern, self-centered church has isolated the faith to a pietism that relinquishes charitable responsibility to the state.

The Kingdom of God advances when women with years of experience applying the Word of God to every area of life and thought teach younger women how to love their husbands and children. This is what godly mentorship is all about. Listen as host Andrea Schwartz and her guest, Beth Bingaman, share their thoughts and advice to would-be mentors and those who would benefit from finding a mentor.
Gender is something that is determined by God and thus needs to be understood in terms of His law-word. While modern culture has now moved to the irrational position that individuals can fluidly gender-identify as they see fit, Christians need to realize what is at stake when this ground is ceded to the ungodly. The book of Genesis tells us that God created male and female. Throughout Scripture there are clear delineations between the roles of men and woman. Any assault on this doctrine undermines the entire Christian faith.
In this two- part Kingdom Driven Family Podcast discussion, Andrea Schwartz and Catherine Brown discuss gender roles from a Biblical perspective.
