Tonight on the Show — Write Stuff Prayercast

prayerThe idea for this prayercast has been in my mind for a while. When it first popped up in my brain, I shooed it away, thinking it was just an errant thought. Over time, the idea began to solidify but I was still unsure. After all, I wanted to be certain it was something the Lord was leading me to do instead of a nice idea. Two weeks ago, at choir rehearsal, we had an impromptu intercessory prayer for one of our choir members going through. There are no words to describe what is it like to be aware of the Spirit in the room. Here, I knew the idea for this prayercast was definitely of the Lord and that He wanted me to do this.

Prayer is the order of the day. It’s as simple as that. if there was ever a time the Body of Christ needed to come together & pray, it’s now. For the church, for our families, for our countries.. The Bible verse from 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” Often this has been taken out of context to be used as sort of a ‘bell call’ to God to give us what we want. But this verse is calling us to humbleness, repentance, & dependence on the Lord.

For this edition of the Write Stuff, we will be taking prayer requests. Although my show focuses on authors, we’re not going to hang up the phone if you want prayer.

Does your life look the same as it did the day you put your faith in Jesus Christ? Or have you discovered the power of the Spirit within you enabling you to live a holy, righteous life? For that matter, is it even possible to be holy?

Many Christians today are wading in the shallow end of the infinite relationship God desires to have with His children. They are strangled by addictions and idolatry, or distracted from the pursuit of spiritual maturity by a cheap imitation of moralism. Whatever the reason, their spiritual growth has been stunted; they’ve never gone beyond mere belief in Jesus Christ.

Beyond Belief: Jesus Saved You … Now What? explores what God has in store for you and what He wants from you. With a firm foundation on the centrality of Christ, this book will help you see exactly who you are and what you are called to, based on, and enabled by, His righteousness alone. Through intense study and humbling application of both the Old and New Testaments, Beyond Belief, will show you what a mature Christian life looks like and what it takes to get there.

The Parker J Cole Show — Energy Flow and Healing

A few years ago, I was at a networking function for small business owners (I owned a virtual assistant company at the time) and met a lovely woman who introduced me to a healing technique called reiki. I made an offhand comment about my shoulders being tense or hurting. After this comment, I was talked into sitting down in a chair and she did some movements with her hand along my shoulders for a few moments. For the life of me, I can’t remember if I felt better or was just creeped out by a woman I didn’t know well touching me. Then she went on to say I had negative energy which may be a cause of my affliction. That was my first and last experience with a reiki master but since then, the number of reiki masters as well as other energy healing practitioners has grown.

On this episode we’ll be talking about energy, energy flow, and how it relates to healing. What does it mean when we say ‘energy’ in this context? Should Christians seek out methods related to this element? What are some popular techniques? What’s the meaning behind it? Where did it all come from?

Our returning guest Marcia Montenegro will be discussing these and many other points. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can click the link here: http://tobtr.com/7706575. Or, download the WLUV Radio mobile app. Tune in!

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Christians and the World of the Strange with Kenneth Morvant

The X-files was a ground-breaking show from the early 2000’s that immersed its viewer into the world of the strange, the unexplainable, and the incredible. From UFOs to government conspiracies to suppress that truth, it lend a vivid imagination and thought provoking discussions about anomalous phenomena.

Years have passed the science fiction has become more of a reality than ever before. Christians have seen and heard things that go bump in the night, disappear into the sky, or whisper in their ears at night. These types of experiences cannot be brushed under the carpet. We have to ask the question: “What else is out there?”

How do Christians deal with the world of the Strange? Join me as I discuss this with my guest co-host and contributor Kenneth Morvant. You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air.

New Picture (3)A life-long science fiction and action adventure fan, minister and life sciences professional, I grew up with all the old movies and TV when your imagination had to be larger than the special effects budget. While they lacked that, they did tell compelling stories. Names such as Heinlein, Asimov, Matheson, Serling are just a few influences from the old school. Newer authors include Tom Clancy, Stephen Coonts and Michael Crichton.

Movies that dominated the screen in the fifties and sixties challenged convention and extended the science of that day into the future. While not accurate most of the time, they did ask what if and what now. Today there is a lot of action and special effects, but sometimes the stories lack depth. That is what I like to bring to the written page.  Reasons why and motivations of the characters are important to the development of any story.

I feel that a book or movie should challenge us as well as entertain. They should make a reader think about the world around them from a different perspective. Technology has advanced to a point where the lines between black and white are blurred and definite answers to issues and problems are not as easy as they once were.

The Parker J Cole Show — Never Mind the Mind

There’s not doubt in my mind that a lot of us are stressed. Work, family, school, church, and other activities rob of us time and peace to relax and regroup. So, we try to find ways to relieve our stress. A rising number of people turn to meditation in order to relieve the tension.

Most people reading this would say, ‘Uh Parker, there’s nothing wrong with meditation. It’s helpful and it really calms me down. In fact, the Bible says to meditate, doesn’t it?”

Meditation according to the Bible is much different than the meditation being practiced and heralded by the health care world, secular science, and the layperson. We’ll explore these nuances and take your questions with my guest Marcia Montenegro, speaker and former astrologer, psychic, medium, and now a child of Christ.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Man and Machine: How Wide the Divide with Frank Creed

It’s the stuff of sci-fi — when man and machine combine so perfectly it creates a whole new being – a cybernetic organism where the artificial implants and the natural impulses fight for dominance. This is when speculative fiction really comes to play as we express ideas and thought about this unique quality of man’s intelligence and the machines we create to serve us.

In today’s world, we see an increasing dependence on technology and machinery to make our lives easier, our work faster, our interactions more spontaneous, and increase the quality of our lives. From pacemakers, to prosthetic limbs, and chips to be implanted in us to track us, one has to wonder how wide is the divide between man and machine?

Will this dependence affect our free will? Can we eventually ‘turn off’ the sectors in our brain to stop us from making bad choices? If we want our children to have certain color eyes, we can manipulate the genes to do that and come with the child of our design. With all these possibilities, how will it affect our thoughts on faith, morals, and values? Will we be overridden by the machine someday and…”sin no more?”

The Parker J Cole Show — Not God’s Type

I’ve mentioned this several times in the past on this show but I will always be thankful to the atheist I encountered about ten years ago on a lonely night near Detroit at 3 in the morning. We had a discussion about God, life, and faith to which he asked me questions I did not have answers to. He led me on a path of entering apologetics and learning to love my Lord with even greater fervor.

On this episode of the Parker J Cole show, join me as I sit down and chat with Holly Ordway, author of the book, Not God’s Type: An Atheist Academic Lays Down Her Arms as she discusses her journey from believing faith was superstitious nonsense to surrendering her life to Christ.

If you’re a skeptic, an atheist, agnostic, seeker,  a doubting Christian or not, this show is for you. Join me by calling in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the WLUV radio mobile app today. Tune in!
