My friend Joel Wiggins joins me today to discuss his new and very controversial book, Take Me to the King - All Churched Out: A Call for Kings to Reclaim the Kingdom. The Priest/Pastor was never meant to be the King...so why do so many of them, especially in the black community, assume the role?
It's a tough line in the sand, saying that its actually a SIN to choose not to vote...but one that I have stood by for years. ALSO...had several callers explain why they choose NOT to vote.

President Obama signed an E.O. today that protects LGBT folks from "discrimination" in companies/organizations that do business with the gov't (24,000 companies & 8M employees)...but with NO religious exemption. Will churches & charities be in jeopardy of losing their tax exempt status as this anti-religious freedom trend continues?
Theology Thursday takes a look at the focus on Church Growth. If you attend a growing church does that mean its a blessed church? We can attract people, but does that mean we are making disciples? If your church ISN'T growing, is it bad by definition? Dr. Chuck Lawless from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary joins me in the studio.
"I will always conduct myself as a gentleman, live pure, speak truth, right wrong and follow the King."

Ephesians 5 calls us to be imitators of Christ...a pretty tall order, to say the least. We have the Holy Spirit...but we also have the Body of Christ. Today on Theology Thursday we talked about the need for an effective engagement of the Body in all of it's diversity in order to become more Christlike. Walter Strickland of Southeastern Baptist was my guest. He's an Instructor of Theology and Special Advisor to the President for Diversity.
The Bible says YES...but the question remains: How do we do that with love, especially when we are disagreeing? Today's show is based on a Facebook post on my wall last week that brought out some pretty nasty assumptions. With the proliferation of social media, our lack of love in dealing with one another is on public display...so what kind of impression are we making?

Summer is here...and with it comes women in bikinis! I don't care what unbelieving ladies wear to the pool...but what about Christian women and girls?
Energize Ministries exists to minister to pastors and ministry leaders...and there is a major need for that.
