The War on Faith Forces Pharmacy to Choose: Conscience or Compliance
Interview with Business Owner Kevin Stormans and Kristen Waggoner of Alliance Defending Freedom A few weeks ago, the United States Supreme Court declined to consider a case on appeal from Washington State. As a result, a family pharmacy run by the Stormans for generations must choose between conscience and compliance. Episode 25 of The FaithWalkers Podcast addresses a recent attempt to force Christians to put their faith in a box. I bring you up to speed on the recent ruling and why it matters, then share an exclusive interview from last year in which I spoke to Kevin Stormans, an owner of Ralph’s Thriftway in Washington state. He is joined by his legal counsel, Kristen Waggoner, senior vice president of legal services for Alliance Defending Freedom. It is one of the most chilling religious liberty cases out there because it is unthinkable that anyone could be forced to participate in what they believe to be murder. A law that forces the Storman’s family to cross their line will eventually require all of us to conform at some point. —Kristen Waggoner The Stormans have now lost their freedom thanks to the US Supreme Court choosing to NOT consider their appeal. Justice Samuel Alito says this does not bode well for those concerned about religious freedom in America. I explain why the decision was so heinous in the episode, but the end result is this: the Stormans must now either help kill babies–a practice they believe to be morally wrong–or shut their doors as pharmacists. But don’t take my word for it. Listen to this episode to hear the story first-hand. These are people who are truly out on the trail, walking with abundant faith in what they believe to be true. Erick Erickson and I document this story in our book You Will Be Made to Care: The War on Faith, Family, and Your Freedom to Believe. I mention in the episode that Amazon is offering it right now for an unbelievably low price of $3.38 !! List price is $27.99, so grab copies while they last and share them freely.

This madness is only just beginning, as evidenced by this story out of Iowa where churches may soon be forced to comply to unbiblical gender reinterpretations–or else. The wildfire continues to burn. This is only the next step. What other occupations will be made unsafe next for religious people in America? We will soon find out.

Episode 24: The Challenge of Walking by Faith in the Here & Now
An Interview with Morgan Rogers of Campus Outreach Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to keep walking by faith when you’ve almost reached your destination. In spite of God’s previous blessings, why is it the mountain in front of us in the here and now always seems to be the biggest one we’ve ever faced? In this episode, I share a conversation with Morgan Rogers, a young lady whose life has been transformed in the last several years by the Gospel. As a student heading out of college with a business degree, she sensed God calling her to serve with Campus Outreach. So instead of looking for a job, she headed for one of the most fertile mission fields in the world–the college campus in America. We talk about her story of faith, of course, and focus on why it is that even after seeing God do so much for us, we still tend to doubt that He will be there for us right here, right now. She is facing a specific need this month and looking forward to seeing God provide as only He can after she stepped out before knowing how it would all turn out. Her email, should you wish to help her complete her faith walk and be the hands and feet, the eyes and ears of Christ on the college campus is morgan.rogers(at)campusoutreach.org.

Episode 23: What Limiting Beliefs Keep You from Enjoying God’s Best?
5 Areas of Life Where Limiting Beliefs Live Sometimes I think God doesn’t tell us how great heaven will be because we wouldn’t believe Him. Seriously. What keeps us from experiencing God’s best in life—from stepping out and walking with abundant faith—are the limiting beliefs we allow ourselves to embrace. In this episode I take a more casual approach, sharing what’s on my heart in connection to the things we all believe that keep us from moving forward. We all have them. And even when we expose and overcome them, others rush to fill in the gap. So we must constantly be making ourselves aware of them and intentionally changing them if we are to achieve God’s best in life. In addition to telling some of my story and how false beliefs held me back, we take a look at some Scriptural examples before applying it to 5 areas of life where we tend to let these limiting beliefs take control: Schedule (timetable) Thinking Relationships Opportunities Consequences If you think God is calling you to step out but you hear nothing but excuses from within and without—you need to listen. Question: What other areas of life have you found yourself limited by the beliefs you wrongly embraced? How has your life been shaped by your determination to confront and overthrow these beliefs?

Episode 21: What’s Happening to Marriage and Religious Liberty?
A Conversation with Andrew T. Walker of the ERLC If you are like a lot of Christians—or even conservative folks, you’re blown away by how quickly marriage and religious liberty have seemed to crumble in recent years. What are we to make of it all in light of the seemingly constant pressure to be made to care? In this episode I share a conversation with Andrew T. Walker of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention. He is also the co-author of the book Marriage Is in which he argues marriage is not up for debate. We talk about why the assault on marriage is taking place, how it all came about, and where it is headed. Most importantly, I share this interview to equip you to live an authentic life with abundant faith even though much of today’s culture in America may say that you are a freak for doing so. You are not alone. Never forget it. Question: What part of the interview helped the most? How did it sharpen your understanding of the faith challenges we face today?

Episode 19: How to Hear God in the Ordinary and Live What We Hear
An Interview with Keith R. Anderson, Author of A Spirituality of Listening How careful are you to listen in to what God is saying to you in the ordinary of life? The good news is that God is speaking all the time. The bad news is we often don’t take time to listen. If you are reading this in email, listen online at FaithWalkers now. Episode 19 is a real treat—an interview with author Keith R. Anderson about his new book A Spirituality of Listening: Live What We Hear. Episode 16 focused on habits of holiness with Tyler Braun and Episode 14 and 15 highlighted habits of engaging the Word, so I thought it appropriate to continue to explore other habits—such as listening—that can pull us closer to God on our faith journey. “Biblical spirituality . . . asserts that God is not done with the business of revelation and creation but instead continues to have something to say and something yet to be accomplished in the very culture that isn’t sure if God is done speaking.” —Keith R. Anderson Question: What parts of the conversation resonated with you the most? What was your key takeaway that you can apply to your faith walk today? Share your thoughts by clicking here.

Interview with Tyler Braun — Author and Pastor Holiness seems like such a mystery sometimes doesn’t it?

Episode 14: 9 Ways the Word Grows Your Faith
Why Engaging the Bible Must Become a Habit We hear a lot about love these days but not so much about truth. Why is that?

Episode 12: Everything Changes When Jesus Speaks
What Jesus Say to All Those Who are Confused, Fearful, and Doubting On the day if his resurrection, Jesus spoke with three types of people–one who was confused, some who were fearful, and one who wa doubting. But we can learn a lot from not only what He said but how he said it. If you are reading this post in email, click here to listen to this episode online at FaithWalkers.com. Have ever been or are you presently confused about your life direction? Are you fearful about what lies ahead in life? Are you doubting if what you believed to be true about God is still certain? If so, then this episode is for you. We unpack John 20–the day of Christ’s resurrection–to discover 3 main points: Jesus Speaks Clarity to the Confused. Jesus Speaks Peace to the Fearful Jesus Speaks Confidence to the Doubting Here is the entire passage from John 20 (ESV): Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.2 So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” 3 So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. 4 Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5 And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. 6 Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there,7 and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus’[a] head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. 8 Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; 9 for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. 10 Then the disciples went back to their homes. Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene 11 But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. 12 And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13 They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14 Having said this, she turned around andsaw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. 15 Jesus said to her,“Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to bethe gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16 Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic,[b] “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” 18 Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her. Jesus Appears to the Disciples 19 On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews,[c] Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21 Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me,even so I am sending you.” 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.” Jesus and Thomas 24 Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, called the Twin,[d] was not with them when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.” 26 Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them.Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said,“Peace be with you.” 27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28 Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Jesus said to him,“Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” The Purpose of This Book 30 Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. I mention my book A Story Worth Telling in the episode as a tool to encourage you if you are struggling with fear, confusion, or doubt in your life. You can find out more about it here. And if you are interested in starting a conversation about having me speak to your group or at your event, you can drop me a note here.

If you are reading this in email, click here to visit FaithWalkers.com and listen online. In this episode I discuss the challenges I experience as an introvert who would prefer to keep my thoughts to myself. Over time, I have realized that being silent is not always the best option. When I don’t speak, my silence speaks for me. We naturally allow others to fill in the blanks with their own fears and insecurities when we choose silence. I offer five reasons we choose to be silent and encouragement for speaking up rather than letting our message be chosen for us. Take a listen and leave a comment about how you respond to silence.

Episode 9: Inside the Process I Use to Cast My Vote
What Christians Should Consider When Deciding on Political Candidates It’s time for a lot of us to start casting votes in political primaries here in America. I have definite political opinions, but I won’t be sharing them in this episode. Instead I want to share the process I use to select candidates—separate from any political parties or individuals—in the hope that it helps. If you are reading this in your email, click here to visit FaithWalkers to listen. Don’t expect to hear any endorsements for particular candidates in this episode. That isn’t my point here. I don’t address political issues much here at FaithWalkers, although I do elsewhere (such as at FaithWalkers at Patheos). But I believe our faith needs to be lived out in an authentic manner both publicly and privately. In this episode I unpack the following basic statement that guides my process of selecting candidates in elections: My vote goes to the candidate I believe will govern in a way that is most consistent with Biblical principles—based on a proven record—with the greatest likelihood of being elected. What I have to say about Christian candidates just might surprise you. A resource I mention: In, But Not Of Revised and Updated: A Guide to Christian Ambition and the Desire to Influence the World by my friend and mentor Hugh Hewitt. You can find the Leader’s Guide for the book here for free. Next Episode: We begin to explore how to develop spiritual habits and disciplines to strengthen our faith.

Episode 8: How Should Christians Respond to Cultural Persecution?
An Interview with Dr. Russell Moore I believe there is a war in America on our freedom to believe. That is why I partnered with my co-author to write You Will Be Made to Care: The War on Faith, Family, and Your Freedom to Believe. In writing that book, I had the privilege to have a conversation with Dr. Russell Moore. I thought your faith would be encouraged by my sharing it. If you are viewing this in email, click here to visit FaithWalkers.com to listen now. It’s easy to get discouraged when we look around at our culture that is becoming increasingly hostile toward Christians and traditional values. Our book details the attacks and explains why the attacks are happening. But it also offers a massive dose of encouragement and inspiration to keep moving forward. We call it a resurgence. We believe it is what Jesus has called us to do as believers. A little about Dr. Moore: Russell Moore serves as the eighth president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the moral and public policy agency of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination. Prior to his election to this role in 2013, Moore served as provost and dean of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he also taught as professor of theology and ethics. A widely-sought cultural commentator, Dr. Moore has been recognized by a number of influential organizations. The Wall Street Journal has called him “vigorous, cheerful, and fiercely articulate” while The Gospel Coalition has referred to him “one of the most astute ethicists in contemporary evangelicalism.” Dr. Moore blogs frequently at his Moore to the Point website, and hosts a program called Questions & Ethics—a wide-ranging podcast in which Dr. Moore answers listener-generated questions on the difficult moral and ethical issues of the day. In addition, he is the author of several books, including Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ and Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families & Churches. An ordained minister, Dr. Moore has served as a pastor for a number of Southern Baptist churches—most recently serving as preaching pastor at Highview Baptist Church from 2008-2012. A native Mississippian, he and his wife Maria are the parents of five boys. Russell Moore’s latest book is a good one Onward: Engaging the Culture without Losing the Gospel. I certainly found his comments illuminating and inspiring. We use many of them in our new book which launched yesterday, by the way. It is available now wherever good books are sold. For the rest of this week only, you can get the Pre-Order Bonus Package that includes 17 other interviews with key thought leaders and victims of the persecution. The Bonus goes away Saturday night.
