It Is Not Us Versus Them, Muslims Part 2
July 19, 2019
Hosted by Annette Smith and Myrna Thatcher
Background material on Muslims and their impact in the Christian realm was aired on July 5th. Part two discusses the difference between Islam's God and the God of the Bible. Did you know that Muslims respect the Bible which identifies Jesus as the Messiah but reject Jesus as the Messiah? Effective evangelism to Muslims is no different than evangelism to those who do not practice Islam. We'll share some pointers that will ease your anxiety and examine your own prejudices. It is not us/non-Muslims against them/Muslims. It is us, Bible teaching, Bible practicing Christians who need to shine the light of the Gospel into the darkness. Remember, our enemy is not flesh and blood. Our enemy is the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)
AbbaDaddy House Girls Speak Out
Friday at 11 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
We give a voice to the voiceless, to those who can't or won't speak out for themselves. We speak up for the rights of all those who are poor and needy. These include people who are and have been sexually abused, who are and have been physically abused, who are suffering with addictions, who are in unhealthy relationships, who are bullied and are the bullies, who are suffering from mental illness, who are deemed by society as unloveable and who feel hopeless. Our social services are overworked and understaffed, so when people are being abused or are in difficult life situations, many times they feel they are not heard. Our program provides a platform for their voices, suggestions for the situations and hope for tomorrow. Often times a person just needs someone to listen. With the right understanding and by opening up to someone who has similar life experiences, one can see there is hope. Life doesn't have to end. You can embrace and trust someone one small step at a time.
Annette Smith and Myrna Thatcher
Myrna Thatcher, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, has been in private practice for 23 years. Seventeen of those years she has partnered with Annette Smith who is Certified in Adlerian Psychology and is a Lay Christian Advisor. Annette's life experiences intertwined with Myrna's professional training create a unique healing experience for clients. Together they authored a book which details Annette's horrendous childhood and the long journey of how God turned her curse into a blessing. When you walk alongside sexually abused children who crawl in your lap, cry and tell you their stories, or you have an adult sit in your office, look in your face, call you a friend, then walk out and shoot himself, it gives you enough experience to know what you are looking at. We have had years of practice of talking to people who are so low, broken and hopeless, that we have to literally reach down and pull them from death's door. Sometimes you take off your professional mask and cry with the client, letting them know you are a human being who cares. The reason we are doing this show is to let everyone know that someone cares. There is a lifeline who they can call. Grab us. We'll listen. We'll talk with you and give you the hope you need. Some of these words are also coming from a person who tried to commit suicide three times, who was on her last hope and also had to reach out and finally found someone who would reach back. We have a Mighty God who will speak the words through us.
