Jews For Jesus (Guest: Dan Sered)

Jews For Jesus (Guest: Dan Sered)

Play

If you had to guess the number one belief system in the state of Israel, what would you say? If you said “jewish” you would be right and wrong. The majority of Israelis would say they were jewish simply because it is their nationality. However, the major belief system in Israel is atheism or secularism.

Furthermore, the majority do not recognize Jesus as a jew, much less the savior of the world. Many simply do not know who Jesus was or that his name in Hebrew means salvation. Israel is one of the most unreached parts of the world. Today on Educate For Life, Kevin speaks with a man who has made it his mission to reach these people. Guest Dan Sered knows first hand what it is like to have never heard the name of Jesus.

Dan Sered was born in Israel on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. His upbringing, like that of many Israelis, was secular, though he was bar mitzvah at age thirteen. Two years later, his family moved to New York where Dan attended Stony Brook University and met Dinah, a Jewish believer in Jesus. Dinah shared the Gospel with Dan explaining that the name of Jesus in Hebrew is Y’shua, and showed Dan how the Hebrew Bible spoke of His coming. Dan committed his life to Y’shua, but not before telling his parents first. Surprisingly, they didn’t respond negatively and Dan discovered that Dinah, her family and church had all prayed about his parents’ response. Dan’s parent’s reaction was one of ‘you will get over this Jesus’ which off course Dan did not. This led to Dan’s parents’ disowning him.

Tune in to hear the rest of Dan’s amazing story and how God is working among His people. You can learn more about Dan and his group Jews For Jesus at http://jewsforjesus.org/. You will also find information on how to get involved or to support Dan’s mission.

Democratic Socialism vs Democratic Republic

Democratic Socialism vs Democratic Republic

Play

Quick! What type of government does the United States have? Would it shock you to know that we don’t have a democracy? In fact many of our founding fathers and early presidents abhorred democratic government. James Madison once said, “Democracy is the most vile form of government. … democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property: and have in general been as short in their lives as the have been violent in their deaths.”

However, the founding fathers realized that certain properties of democracy would benefit America which is why they framed the United States as a democratic republic. They also recognized that a democratic republic would only be stable as long as God was at the center.

Today’s political atmosphere has shifted. Democratic socialism has become popular to some and to others it is still a taboo. Join Kevin Conover to dissect these often confusing political terms. What is democratic socialism and is it something to be feared? If we allow it in American are we opening the door to communism and ultimately fascism. Is this issue being blown out of proportion? Tune in and listen to Kevin break it down and explain why it’s so important to keep God at the center of our government.

Lawsuit Against God (guests: Clay Jones and Sean Taylor)

Lawsuit Against God (guests: Clay Jones and Sean Taylor)

Play

The debate over the existence of God and the presence of evil is ages old. The greek philosopher Epicurus pondered this seeming contradiction. He wrote, “Is God willing to prevent evil but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”

In the modern age, this debate landed in a court of law. In 2007, a state senator sought an injunction against God for His many malicious acts. In his lawsuit, the senator claimed God has caused “widespread death, destruction and terrorization of millions upon millions of the Earth’s inhabitants.” The judge eventually dismissed the case because the Almighty could not be properly notified of the lawsuit because of his unlisted home address.

Today, that debate continues on Kevin Conover’s Educate For Life radio show. He is joined by guests Clay Jones and Sean Taylor. Clay Jones is a professor at Biola university and is writing a book, Why God Allows Evil, and speaks widely on that subject. Find him on the web at www.clayjones.net. Sean Taylor is an active member of the secular humanist, skeptic and atheist communities in Southern California including the San Diego Coalition of Reason.

Tune in to this engaging discussion and debate on this important and age old topic.

BONUS: Should Black Christians Support Israel? (guest Dumisani Washington)

BONUS: Should Black Christians Support Israel? (guest Dumisani Washington)

Play

In this unaired bonus episode of Educate For Life with Kevin Conover, Kevin speaks with Dumisani Washington. Dumisani is the founder of the IBSI (Institute for Black Solidarity with Israel) and author of Zionism & the Black Church: Why Standing With Israel Will Be a Defining Issue for Christians of Color in the 21st Century. He presents his views on why it is important for all American Christians to support the modern state of Israel, and the Black church in particular. Kevin and Dumisani talk about some of the misinformation that the enemies of Israel have circulated in their attempts to delegitimize it as a state, especially the idea that zionism is equivalent to racism. Dumisani explains why the black church can identify with the people of Israel, and why all Christians must defend the only safe place for the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the Middle East.

To learn more about Dumisani and his book Zionism and the Black Church, visit IBSI-now.org.  You can learn more about how US Christians can support Israel by visiting Christians United for Israel (CUFI.org), the largest pro-Israel organization in the US.

A Legacy of Creation (guest Dr. Henry Morris III)

A Legacy of Creation (guest Dr. Henry Morris III)

Play

Not long ago, the debate between creation and evolution was almost entirely one-sided—at least in the scientific sense. Although Christians long opposed the evolutionary explanation of life on Scriptural grounds, they had no answers to any of the scientific arguments. That is, until Dr. Henry Morris published The Genesis Flood in 1961. This book became, as Dr. Steven Jay Gould commented, the “founding document of creationism,” and Dr. Morris the founder of the modern scientific creationist movement.

In this episode Kevin talks with Dr. Morris’ son, Dr. Henry Morris III, about his father’s legacy, the ongoing success of the Institute for Creation Research, and other issues relating to creationism. They discuss current creation research projects, the future and challenges of creationism in the church, and more.

In addition to the many free resources they offer on ICR.org, the Institute for Creation Research provides creationism training at special conference events.  One such event will take place at Calvary Chapel in Oceanside this October, and feature leading creation scientists Dr. Henry Morris III, Dr. Jason Lisle and Dr. Jake Hebert.  Don’t miss out on such a great opportunity!  Visit ICR’s event page for more information.
