Tonight on the Write Stuff — Everyone Was Left Behind

In the midnight hours of April 24th, a prophecy fails and its prophet falls.

Pastor Graham Wilcox boldly predicted Jesus would return to earth on April 24th to rapture His faithful. But, when April 25th arrives, the world is the same, except for Wilcox, who is found dead. His gruesome murder rocks the community where Wilcox lived and the families who frequented the small church that he pastored.

To uncover the truth behind the murder, the skeptical Detective Daniel Seitzer must go to the place he dreads most: church. Along with his new, religious partner, Seitzer wades through a myriad of rumors, secrets, and strange connections as well as an astonishing number of people who had motive to kill Wilcox. Is the killer one of the pastor’s own congregants, or a shadowy figure on the periphery of the church connected with a powerful pharmaceutical company?

For Seitzer, a grieving widow, a multi-million-dollar company, and a faithful but broken family, the truth behind the events of April 24th will either set them free or bury those who have been left behind.

The Universe and Other Words, Part 3 with Marcia Montenegro — The Parker J Cole Show

The final segment of the Universe and Other Words with Marcia Montenegro.

I love when I have Marcia Montenegro from Christian Answers for the New Age on my show. Her knowledge about the subtleties of New Age thought, practices, and other elements entering the Church is spot on. Of course, she would know. She was heavily entrenched in New Age thought for many, many years.

We hear words like, ‘The Universe’, ‘Consciousness’ ‘The Shift’ and other hot button words in use today. Are these words just words that have no meaning behind them. Or is there more to it? Should we care about it? Should we use them? On our final segment, we’ll wrap it up with the last of our vocabulary and final thoughts.

Let’s talk about it with Marcia. You can call in at 646-668-8485 and press 1 to be live on air. Or, download Stitcher on your mobile device. Or, click on the link here. http://tobtr.com/10431965.

Parker J Cole Show Throwback Thursday — The Biblical Justification for Slavery

This show was a unique experience for me because Lisa Guinther truly had me stumped. I had NO idea what she was going to say and I sorta chewed my nails as I waited. Would I have to hang up on her if she said something out of the wall? Would the phone lines be ringing off the hook? A lot of thoughts went through my mind with this show.

Interestingly enough, Lisa said, “Trust me.”

Trust. A word that many are searching for today. Who do we trust in when EVERYONE seems to break our trust? Yet, in the few years I’ve known Lisa, she hasn’t even given me any reason, NOT to trust her. So, I did.

By the end of this episode, I was struck anew by Lisa’s approach to biblical interpretation. She really lets us know to read the Bible for all its worth.

Enjoy!

I am a writer who believes that the life lived best is lived in service to God, and that only under the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit one might produce a worthwhile work. I seek to craft entertaining, enriching, and inspiring tales that glorify the Lord in confidence that the Holy Spirit will use them to change lives and draw people closer to Jesus Christ.

In simply offering myself in surrender to the Spirit, I have discovered the satisfaction of worshiping the Lord as an instrument of the writing process. I believe my experience be confirmation of God’s calling on my life, and pray that each and every person is as deeply transformed in reading these stories as I was in writing them. To Him alone be the glory, for I am author of naught.

Write Stuff Throwback Tuesday — More Than the Madness

Talking about mental illness is a passion of mine. It’s my desire to always highlight issues like this so others would know they are not alone. One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. My guest happened to be a good author friend of mine, John Kaniecki. As a pastor, husband, and someone who suffers from bipolar disorder, I’m always excited to have him on the show.  He talks about his book, More than the Madness 


51hKLmx4j0LThere is MORE than the MADNESS

This book gives readers a glimpse into the life of someone living with bipolar disorder. It’s not a clinical book filled with facts and figures, but a book of humanity.

Spanning childhood to early adult, through stories of abuse, being bullied, experimentation with drugs and alcohol, inpatient stays on psych wards, a night in jail, his college days in the fraternity, hitchhiking across America, and his time in a third world country, John gives the reader a personal and up-close look into his life as a manic depressive. The stories are sad, shocking, and at times funny as he shares his antics while at his most manic and delusional.

Throughout his journey, John also struggles with his faith in God. More than the Madness is a testament of one man’s journey to grow closer to God while gaining a better understanding of himself.

John wrote his story to help educate others on mental illness and remove some of the stigma associated with it. It is his hope that readers will get to know the person behind the diagnosis; take away the labels and meet someone’s son, friend, and husband. See that there is More Than the Madness

Why Stay A Christian When God Lets You Down? — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole Banner

**REBROADCAST**

War. Disease. Social unrest. It’s around us every day. Trial and struggle.

From global financial crisis to terrorist acts to disease and natural disasters, we are impacted by trials every day. Some of us, in fact, MOST of us, would say life is hard. Yet, maybe it’s not the major events of the world that affect us but the things in our personal lives which turn our spheres of life upside. Perhaps sickness has struck you or your loved ones. Maybe the company you worked for went under. You’ve lost precious ones in your life. Or, you’re wondering why can’t you get it together and be married and have some form of happily ever after.

Perhaps your struggle goes even deeper. Why did you have to be the one hurt and abused by those you trusted the most? Why can’t you have a child while others do? Why did the thief come and take your personal belongings? Why doesn’t seem as if nothing can go right? Why can’t you find purpose? Why can’t you be mentally balanced like ‘everyone else’?

Shouldn’t God be bigger than this? If God is so powerful, why is this so difficult. Why hold onto the faith when it seems the omnipotent Lord doesn’t do anything to help. Why stay a Christian when God lets you down?

Join me as we delve into a thought, a question, or an argument I’m sure we’ve all had with my guest co-host, Trevor Slone. Perhaps we can help. Listen in at 646-668-8485. Or download Stitcher on your mobile device. Or, click on the link here.
