“Living in the Daze of Deception: How to Discern Truth from Culture’s Lies” with Pastor Jack Hibbs

5/30/2024
Jenny’s guest for this segment is Pastor Jack Hibbs, the senior and founding Pastor of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, based in Southern California, Founder & President of Real Life Network, and a nationally syndicated TV & Radio host. They are talking about his book, “Living in the Daze of Deception: How to Discern Truth from Culture’s Lies.” He shares with us how Jesus warned that deception would grow worse as we draw nearer to the end times, saying, “Take heed that no one deceives you” (Matthew 24:4). Distinguishing truth from error has become an increasingly challenging task—even in the church. We live in a time when falsehoods assault us from every direction. Packaged with just enough truth to make them appear trustworthy, these counterfeits have grown more and more difficult to detect and avoid. "Living in the Daze of Deception” explores the many ways error is masquerading as truth—and how you can discern the difference. The greatest antidote to deception is truth. Equip yourself now to grow in discernment so that you can protect yourself from error and remain steadfast in your faith! Jenny had the opportunity to sit down with him at this year’s NRB - the National Religious Broadcasters Convention. The audio has some distorted areas due to where we were recording, but this interview was far too important not to hear.

When God Interrupts Our Plans

3/23/2024
“We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9. Life is full of moments of interruptions or change. Sometimes things are going good and all of a sudden, life takes an unexpected turn. When Jesus walked the earth, we heard about how he stopped whenever he was “interrupted.” And what about Mary-the mother of Jesus, the disciples, Moses, Jonah, Gideon or Joseph, just to name a few. Their plans were certainly changed! Sometimes it aggravates us, but interruptions may be divinely placed in our life for a reason. Jenny's guest is Rob Patrick, Executive Director of Knoxville Area Project Access (KAPA). He’s here to talk about how God is always at work in your life, making things happen for you even when you don’t see it or expect it! It may be that God interrupts our plans to set us in a different direction.

Spiritual Warfare: The Battle Is Real

2/1/2024
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Eph 6:12 Jenny’s guest Paul Bagai, Minister of Discipleship and Young Adults at First Baptist Knoxville is here to help us maneuver through the topic of “spiritual warfare.” We are daily assaulted by the enemy who seeks to “steal, kill and destroy” our lives, and sometimes we don’t even notice. Other times it is very evident and oppressing. First Peter 5:8 warns, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” Satan is trying to pull us away from God and is fighting to bring us back into captivity and strongholds. Ephesians 6:10-20 teaches us how to defend against spiritual warfare through the armor of God and how important it is to put it on daily. While planning this show for weeks, both Jenny and Paul experienced numerous bouts of spiritual warfare and setbacks. We knew this would be a powerful interview. They discuss spiritual warfare - what it is, how can we recognize it and - how do we face it!
