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.

The Arrogance of Well-meaning People — The Parker J Cole Show **REBROADCAST**

In April, my hubby and I were walking our dog one afternoon when we came upon our neighbor from a couple of blocks down the street walking her dog. I asked after her husband, who I knew had been sick for a while and she told me he’d passed away a month before. Shocked, I gave her my condolences. She talked about her husband for a few moments. Then I started to share some of my memories of her husband as we walked back to her house. Her smile as I told a particularly humorous event lit her face up. She looked beautiful as we shared in the memory.

About two months later, we walked our dog again and she was sitting outside her home reading a book. After my dog and hers greeted each other, I asked how she had been doing since her husband’s death. She said, “I should be getting over it now.” I froze for a moment and knew in an instant she may have been mimicking someone else’s platitude. It angered me. Her husband had just died TWO months ago. Was it comforting to tell a woman who shared her life with her spouse that she should be over it now?

Unfortunately, this wouldn’t be the last time I’ve heard of people, in the middle of grief, being hurt by well-meaning people. In fact, it would be several more stories over the course of this time that led me to reach out to my returning guest co-host and contributor, Gary Roe. Well acquainted with grief and loss, I wanted him to help understand that in our efforts to give comfort, we need to be so careful of how execute it. In fact, in our well-meaning attempts to help, an certain arrogance may precipitate our words and cause more harm than good.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — A Love Story: How God Pursued Me and Found Me by Samantha Ryan Chandler

The tale of Samantha Ryan Chandler’s life is evocatively portrayed in her book: A Love Story, How God Pursued Me and Found Me. It tells of a life that is as disturbing and unsettling as it is uplifting and, in the end, gratifying. How “A girl from Nowhere, Louisiana” finds her way from such humble beginnings to live and walk amongst presidents and the supremely rich, only to find her trust and faith betrayed by those that she loved and trusted the most. She would be tested to the point where she began to doubt her own sanity and, at the moment of her greatest desperation and doubt, she was found by God and brought back from the brink of hopeless despair. Blessed with an almost unquenchable optimism and a unique sense of humor, she relates the story of a life that will speak to those who have encountered abuse, unfairness and anguish. Her love for her children and her faith in God carried her through a crucible of fire and in the end, made her a better, stronger person, ready to carry on with a life that is again filled with love, joy and laughter. A Love Story, How God Pursued Me and Found Me will both inspire you and touch your heart.


Samantha Ryan was born in a colorful, town in Louisiana. Convinced that the world had to be bigger than her hometown, she left her familial roots and created a path that took her to cities across the United States and the world. Possessing a natural gift for design and a penchant for history, Samantha channeled those talents into a life full of projects and historical enquiry. In her own words, “being a mom is the greatest job in the world,” Samantha spent the better part of three decades running carpools, cooking hot meals, leading girl scout troops and taking art and fitness classes for and with one or more of her three girls. A series of divine interactions led Samantha to impact a wider range of people than ever before when she co-founded Children’s Cross Connection (now known as Childspring International). Together the two of them brought hundreds of children with life crippling and life threatening ailments and afflictions from developing world countries like Ethiopia, the Philippines, Haiti and others to the United States for donated surgeries.

Tonight on the Write Stuff — Deliverance from Demons and Diseases with Eric M. Hill

Tormented by persistent problems or incurable diseases? Done all you know to reach God, but nothing happens? Fasting, praying, crying, counseling–nothing works? If so, this book is for you. Eric explains how to seek God for help. He shows from the Bible and personal examples that many problems are directly aggravated or caused by demons–evil spiritual entities ignored or scoffed at by many, but spoken of as literal beings by Jesus Christ and the Bible.

Eric regularly sees many people delivered from sexual, emotional, mental, and spiritual bondages that previously appeared unbreakable. A personal friend of his was dramatically healed of scoliosis right before the eyes of he and his wife and another couple. How? It happened by casting out the spirit–that’s right, the spirit–of scoliosis. A preacher who was called to the ministry confessed that he couldn’t answer the call because he was totally bound by lust. He was dramatically set free after only five or so minutes of what is commonly known as “deliverance ministry.”

Nonetheless, it isn’t the intent of this book to classify every negative thing that occurs as the work of a demonic spirit. It is, however, its intent to convince you that your situation could be the work of an evil spirit. What would you lose by taking the Bible seriously and at least cautiously examining whether these things are possible?

Do you believe in God? Do you believe He is a spirit? If so, you already believe in a major premise of this book–that spirits are real. Is it unreasonable to believe that if there is a such thing as a good spirit, God, that there could be evil spirits?

Hi! If you’re reading this, you obviously have read or are contemplating reading one or more of my books. I am grateful for God’s favor on my writing, and for each person who takes the time to read (and review!) my books. So, a big thank you!

I write Christian spiritual warfare fiction, as well as Christian fiction (and nonfiction) that’s not classified as spiritual warfare. My hope is to write stories that edify and grip your soul and push you closer to Christ.

You’ll notice in my writing that I write about real life. This doesn’t mean being graphic and unnecessary with sex, violence, or bad language. (I know I must give an account to the Lord on Judgment Day of every word I’ve written!) But it does mean I try to deal with hard issues and ungodly behavior, although in a godly way. So prepare for a good, realistic read.

Concerning other ministry, I am the founder and director of Eric’s School of Spiritual Warfare & Supernatural Ministry. Learn more about it at https://ericmhillauthor.com.

I appreciate all of you!

Eric

Meditations for Caregivers — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerBeing a caregiver is hard work. It requires sacrifice, consistency, and a lot of care to help those in need. Caregivers are some of the most stressed out people who work in love, often for little reward. After all, their loved one is sick, or incapacitated physically and mentally. Caregivers often feel alone, stuck in a rut, and guilty for feeling that way. How can we help those who care for our loved ones?

On this episode of the Parker J. Cole show, we will be talking with returning guest, RJ Thesman as she shares with us her family’s experience as they have cared for her parents, both who have had, and do have Alzheimer’s. Through thoughtful insights, essays, journaling and so much more, we hope these meditations and inspirations will give care to the caregivers.

Once upon a time, my mother bought me a Red Chief Tablet and a fat pencil. Both of these items were supposed to be for school, but I flipped to the first page and wrote a story. Ever since that day, even though I graduated to notebooks, binders and computers – I’ve been writing stories. Some of them were published as nonfiction articles and later – nonfiction books. Some of them I crafted as short stories and later – novels.

But whether I’m working in my office, sitting at a traffic light or observing the intricacies of people – I’m always writing.
