The Holidays and Family Dynamics: Lysa Terkeurst Offers Spiritual Wisdom on Forgiveness

The Christian Church is built on the foundation of forgiveness; of Jesus Christ's death on the Cross to atone for the world's sins. Yet many Christians are not really schooled in the mechanics of forgiveness. It is quite vital not only for health and mental stability, but also as a tenet of the faith. It is the Lord's Prayer that asks God, "Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those..." While we say the prayer often, we still harbor un-forgiveness to those who have hurt us, maligned us,...


Jim Wahlberg, Brother of Actors Mark and Donnie, Carves His Own Path to Faith With Freedom From Drugs

He used to hustle his way through life. Had his first drink at 8 years of age and it was downhill from there for the next decade and a half. Jim Wahlberg is not nearly as famous as his actor brothers, Mark Wahlberg (Boogie Nights, Deepwater Horizon) and Donnie Wahlberg (Blue Bloods), but he is just as driven. And his zeal has taken him from the very depths of life's darkest moments in jail, to the heights of the light of faith. The Boston native is one of nine children of an Irish Catholic...


The Vatican's McCarrick Report: What Now for Catholics and the Catholic Church?

Theodore McCarrick was one of the most powerful priests in American Catholicism, rising to the rank of Cardinal and Archbishop of Washington, D.C. But now in the wake of the Vatican's two-year investigation into his sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable Seminarians, it's clear that this darling of the Church was really a demon. He was a 'predator and pathological liar", to quote eminent scholar George Weigel. But what's also clear from the report, is that McCarrick did not rise in a vacuum....


The Power of Prayer and the Story of Fr. Patrick Peyton, aka, "The Rosary Priest"

You might call him the Billy Graham of the Catholic world. Fr. Patrick Peyton coined the phrase, "The family that prays together, stays together;" a dynamic message that energized Catholics and other Christians in the mid 20th Century. Fr. Peyton drew tens of thousands to his prayer crusades around the globe. Hollywood also, believe it or not, bowed to his calling. His radio show guest lineup was A listers of Tinsel Town's elite like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, and Joan Crawford. It's...


Ghosts, Demon Possession and Spiritual Evil: A Modern-Day Look

Halloween is one of the most fun childhood events; dressing up and trick-or-treating is a yearly ritual. But lost in the festivities is the possibility of real evil, real ghosts and yes, even real demon possession and infestations. Billy Hallowell takes a modern look at all three in his book, "Playing with Fire." On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Hallowell talks about the real-life demon possession of a teenage boy in 1949 that was the inspiration behind the 1973 movie "The...


William Federer on the 400th Anniversary of the Pilgrims Landing on Plymouth Rock: A Treacherous World Then and Now

On November 11th, 1620 Christian Pilgrims from Europe landed on Plymouth Rock. They were fleeing religious persecution and the tyranny of "might is right." They believed in the hope of self-government and the freedom to worship as they saw fit. It was outlandish and without precedent. The DNA of the freedoms we enjoy in America today, was conceived by those 102 souls tired of political/religious wars where the victor dictated how the victimized would serve their God. On this episode of...


Assault on America: Dr. Alex McFarland Sounds an Alarm Against the Left

"Has America reached its expiration date?" That is a question Dr. Alex McFarland asks in his new book, "The Assault on America: How to Defend Our Nation Before It's Too Late." It's an alarm, and it's coming from someone who normally isn't prone to sounding them. McFarland is a genteel Southerner; a theologian, historian, national speaker, Radio host, and founder of Truth for A New Generation. He's traveled the country extensively and sees disturbing trends assaulting America's foundational...


The Catholic Vote: Part II and Pope Francis' Encyclical "Fratelli Tutti"

This is the second of two podcasts on the Catholic Vote. The phrase "So goes the Catholic, so goes the election" has been tried and true for the last few decades. Since 1972 Catholics have picked the winner of the presidential election all but one time. The Catholic Vote Part I featured Brian Burch, President of, an organization working to re-elect Donald Trump. Part II's featured guest is John Carr, director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life at...


The Catholic Vote: PART I

The phrase "So goes the Catholic, so goes the election" has been tried and true for the last few decades. Since 1976 Catholics have picked the winner of the presidential election all but one time. But this election has been hard to read. Experts will tell you, Catholics are not a monolithic. They are White, Hispanic, Black and Brown; Poor, wealthy, and middle class; all ages and sizes; and various intensities of beliefs in the faith's core values. Also, Catholics are not prone to voting for...


The New Relationship Between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain Comes Amid More Strife Within The Jewish State

The new accord recently signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain is a glimmer of light at the end of a long tunnel toward peace in the Middle East. Since the partition in 1948 which created the modern Jewish state, Israel has been in bloody conflict with its Muslim majority neighbors. But the irony of this new relationship between these more moderate Muslim countries, is that it comes at a time when Israel is seeing increased conflict within its borders, between...


Times Square Church Pastor Has A Divine Appointment with America's Spiritual Roots

Believing in the power of prayer means believing that America can be saved from the many sins that plague her and divide her; past, present, and future. The Pilgrims who first stepped onto the soil of the New World 400 years ago were faithful that God had brought them safe from England across treacherous waters and their only task was to glorify Him as they journeyed forth seeking the freedom to worship and live out their faith. Such is the spiritual roots of America. But many today, like...


The 9/11 Terror Attacks and the Coronavirus: Christina Stanton Reflects on Faith and Surviving Both

In this nineteenth year since terrorists attacked America, the nation is reeling from another form of evil called the Coronavirus. Christina Stanton is a living, breathing embodiment of surviving both. She survived the yellow dust that engulfed her and her husband while running from the collapsing twin towers, and in the process grew in faith and learned to trust in God. She built a foundation on which she would face yet another evil, COVID-19, and more than two weeks in the ICU. Nearly a...


Fatima: New Movie Retells the Story of the Early 20th Century Miracle for 21st Century Audiences

In 1917 three children from the village of Fatima in Portugal, witnessed what they said was a visitation of the Virgin Mary. The story of nine-year-old Lucia and her two younger cousins, Francisco, 7, and Jacinta, 6, has been the subject of intense investigations by the Catholic Church, faith-driven historians, and curious skeptics. The children were believed to have had the visitation once a month for several months culminating in the Miracle of the Sun witnessed by thousands in October of...


Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson says the Country Needs Jesus

If there's one thing Phil Robertson isn't shy about, it's telling people about Jesus, and that they need Jesus; that we all do. Robertson's new book, "Jesus Politics: How to Win Back the Soul of America," is a candid and blunt take on where the country has come from and where it's headed. The "Duck Dynasty" star chastises his own generation of some 60 years back, that took prayer out of the schools, took God out of public discourse and relegated Jesus to the corner of 'a nice teacher of...


Dr. Tony Evans: "Our Church Votes" and Reflecting on the Deaths of John Lewis and Herman Cain

The recent deaths of Rep. John Lewis and Herman Cain represents something larger than the loss of two prominent Black politicians, although that is significant. The two men represent diverging paths of the Black vote. Lewis a Democrat, Cain a Republican. Both men are sons of the South and faithful believers in Jesus Christ; benefiting from the political power wielded by the Black Church, which historically favored the Democratic party. But in 2020, African Americans are benefitting from the...


A Father's Faith is a Child's Destiny, Author Tyler Rowley: Because of Our Fathers

A Father's role in today's culture has been more or less sidelined at worst, or undefined at best. But Author Tyler Rowley says a Father's faith is critical to a child developing his or her own faith. A father's faith that is lived out not just in words but in deeds in everyday life, has a tremendous impact on his children. Even when a mother's faith in Jesus is strong, if the father's faith is weak or non-existent, the child will drift from the faith. In his book "Because of Our Fathers,"...


South Korea's Shincheonji Church Labeled A Cult and Blamed For COVID-19 Outbreak: One Member Speaks Out

Michelle Kim appears to be a normal, twenty-something year old, first generation American, living the American dream in California. But over the last few months the dream is starting to become a nightmare because of her membership in the Shincheonji Church of Jesus. The church has been labeled a cult, accused of brainwashing its members into submission, and claim its founder called himself Jesus. The church, with its 300,000 members, is based in South Korea but has branches in 20 countries...


Dr. David Jeremiah: Sheltering in God During Hard Times

"God is eternal," and everything else is temporary. That includes the Coronavirus, loss of jobs, relationships, even our homes. None of us want to be tested in losing those vitally important things in our lives. But the Bible assures us that putting our faith in God will help us navigate those stormy waters and come out stronger and better for it. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Dr. David Jeremiah, author and founder of Turning point, an international Christian ministry, talks...


Dr. Jim Denison: We are All One in Christ Jesus, So Why Does Racism Persist?

One of the hardest lessons in the Bible we face is the reality that we are all sinners and "fall short of the glory of God." Intellectually we get it; praise it, and preach it. But if we all know it's true, then why is there a Black Lives Matter movement? Why is it necessary? Why is it so hard to see someone of a different race as fellow image bearers? It's because all of us are prone to sins we aren't event aware of or even recognize as sin; it's the "crouching tiger," concealed from even...


John Tesh: Journalist, Musician and Longtime Face of Entertainment Tonight, His Relentless Faith Battle with Cancer

Musician, Broadcaster, radio host, Journalist; John Tesh has a long list of accolades and accomplishments. He became a household name as co-host of the television show "Entertainment Tonight" for a decade starting in the mid-80's. His classic good looks; tall, blond hair, blue eyes and affable personality plus that velvety voice gave him staying power in an industry that is fickle at best. But while his career seemed heaven-sent, underneath all his successes loomed a host of failures,...
