What Divorce Taught Me About God: A Panel Discussion — The Parker J Cole Show

PJC Show 2020
I honestly believe that no one gets married with the intention to get a divorce. Most of us take our vows seriously. To have and to hold. In sickness and in health. Till Death do us part. In the confines of marriage, there’s a lot we learn about God through learning about how we are supposed to love each other. In the past, Christendom has been divided on the issue about divorce. Some believe that divorce is never an option. Others believe it is in certain circumstances. There are those who say there are only special circumstances that God will ALLOW divorce. Others says not.
 
Whether or not we agree about divorce, the bible is very clear — God hates divorce. No ifs, ands, or buts, about it. So where does that leave the believer, who for one reason or another have gone the route of divorce? Hopefully in the confines of marriage, we learn about God’s love, patience, long-suffering, devotion, etc. However, I submit that we can learn about God through divorce.
 
With me to discuss this are panel of Christian authors who have been through divorce. We’ll tackle the subject as well as take your questions and comments on Saturday, March 28th at 2 pm Eastern time. You can call in at 646-668-8485 and press 1 to be live on air.

Domestic oppression…what is that? Did you know that domestic oppression is the seedbed for every other form of abuse that takes place within families and churches? And did you know that the quantity of people who suffer under domestic oppression within the church is staggering in its pervasiveness?In Behind the Veil: Exposing the Evil of Domestic Oppression and Providing Hope, pastor and biblical counselor Warren Lamb pulls back the veil on an evil that has been too long misunderstood and overlooked in Christian circles.I

;•Confront and, where possible, call to account those who oppress their families;

•Provide oppression-free churches for God’s children to thrive in;

•Become the safe haven for the oppressed and exploited that Christ intends for it to be.It is high time we effectively partner with Jesus Christ to “proclaim release to the captives…and to set free those who are oppressed.” (Luke 4:18b)

**SPECIAL EDITION** Men in Love — The Parker J Cole Show

meninlove3Men in Love is a special show — it’s all about love, marriage, romance, and faith all from a male perspective. Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio guest hosts this edition of the Parker J Cole show.

This week, we celebrated Valentine’s Day. A holiday usually steeped in romance, from chocolate hearts, red roses, intimate dinners, and togetherness. However, in celebrating this holiday, marriages are broken, divorce rates skyrockets, and professions of love are only skin deep. For some people, they mean absolutely nothing, empty words for empty hearts.

As an author, I have access to authors from all over. I wanted to hear words of love and what love means from a male perspective. There’s a lot of misandry out there so I wanted to talk to men who used words effectively to show what love meant to them. Several men answered the call and their thoughts are for you to enjoy. Yet, I didn’t want to just say words. We NEED a biblical context for love, romance, marriage, and faith.

So, I reached out to Dr. Mike Spaulding of Soaring Eagle Radio. I’ve been a follower of his show, his blog, and have had the honor of having him talk to us about Men in Love and what it truly means. His concise and poignant commentary is one that I hope will encourage and uplift you. Listen in at 929-477-1965. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/s/11202903.

The Adulteress Principality, Part 2 — The Parker J Cole Show

jezebel1

Last month, we began our series on the Adulteress Principality, Join us for part 2 with Rebecca Bruner.

She is everything a woman wants to be — glorious, beautiful, and vivacious. All men want her. She is captivating, exciting, and desirable that men can not help but succumb to her charms.

Hiding among the pages of a magazine, pictured on the billboard of the freeway, or clicked on by a mouse, the Adulteress Principality exists only to destroy the first relationship God created: marriage.

The Adulteress Principality has existed for eons, changing shape and form. She has been a woman of ample proportions. She has been a woman of slim proportions. She changes with changing dictates of the culture and what unattainable beauty demands we place upon ourselves. With silken words, she reaches out and embrace we women with words of cunning. “You do not look, act, or talk like me. I will take him from you and there’s nothing you can do.” To the men, she whispers sweet-honeyed words, “Stolen water is sweet.” With such words she entices the men to her canopied bed. Under the auspices of pleasure, she latches chains of bondage meant to steal, to kill, and to destroy.

The Adulteress Principality is not the ‘other woman’ who make take on her guise. She is a spirit who seeks to destroy not just marriages, but self-esteem, virility, and more.

Join me as I chat with my returning co-host Rebecca Bruner as we continue to discuss the Adulteress Principality. You can call in at our new number 929-477-1965, press 1 to be live on air.

Marriage Booboos — The Parker J Cole Show

Parker J Cole BannerSome time ago, my sister came over to visit. We sat for a while talking about any and everything like sisters do. The subject eventually turned to our appearance. My twin said, “I’m fatter than you.” To which I said, “No, I’m fatter than you.” Delightfully arguing about why each of us was the bigger twin, suddenly my husband got up and walked by us on his way to either do something manly like playing video games or to escape. I’ll never be sure. “Baby,” I called out to him, “be honest: which one of us is fatter? Me or her?”

I’ve never seen a man look more like a deer caught in headlights while trying to avoid the aim of a hunter’s gun. “Like he’s gonna pick either one of us as the fattest!” My twin roared with laughter as hubby rushed down the hall and away from us. “No matter which way he answered that, it was gonna be wrong.”

Oops! I made a marriage booboo.

Sometimes they’re small little faux pas like the one I mentioned above. Other times they’re bigger and more serious, like hurtful words and actions. Perhaps they’re precipitated by internal things like insecurity, jealousy, or unforgiveness. Perhaps it’s a secret we haven’t shared. Whatever it is, marriage booboos happen. Can we survive them?

The Parker J Cole Show — Empowering Women about Purity with April Kelsey

Parker J Cole BannerJoin me for the month of March as we discuss women’s empowerment in various aspects of life as we celebrate Women’s History Month

The purity movement in the evangelical church is in and of itself a worthy cause. Children of knowledgeable years are encouraged to stay pure or abstain from any premarital sex. They wear promise rings, make sure their clothes are modest, and ensure that time with members of the opposite are limited to group activities where there is not hint of a chance of sexual impropriety.

Unfortunately, the purity movement hasn’t really done much to make our children pure. In fact, the burden of purity is such to where most of those promise keepers tend to break their promise. They’re left feeling guilty, unworthy of God’s love and forgiveness and are given a set f rules to follow that simply adds to the problem.

On this edition of the Parker J Cole show, we’ll be discussing how women can be empowered by purity regardless of their sexual state and how the Church can advocate purity without subjecting our children to a rule book no one can follow. To unfold this topic with me is April Kelsey, blogger of Revolutionary Faith.

The Parker J Cole Show — Relationship Month: Husbands & Wives

Parker J Cole BannerPeople make the world go around. That’s a fact. Without people, we really would be a ‘pale blue ball’ like Sagan once said. How we interact with each other helps to build families, communities, and cultures. All this month on the Parker J Cole show, we will be discussing relationships — from husband and wives to friends and siblings. Each week, our commentary will focus on particular aspect of the relational wheel.

This week, we’ll be discussing husbands and wives. This is a particularly hot topic, especially in the Church as various views of what a husband’s and wife’s role is according to biblical teaching. So we’re up for the challenge. Join me as I talked with Pastor Mike Spaulding from Soaring Eagle Radio and the Transforming Word as we talk about the first relationship God ever made — husband and wife.

The Parker J Cole Show — The Taboo of Intimacy

It is a known fact that our Western culture is over saturated by sexuality. From advertising to kids’ show, sensuality of some sort makes its way into our brain. Unless you live a place where it isn’t propagated, chances are you’ve been exposed.

Within this culture, there is a purity movement of the church that seeks to have young children and young adults abstain from sexual relations and promote purity, abstinence, and the like. However, in spite of these well-meaning programs, chances are most of these attendees into the programs will likely enter into sexual relationships in their teens despite their promise not to.

So on one hand you have the world telling you to ‘just do it’. On the other hand, you have the Church saying ‘don’t do it’. Where is the balance?

Join me as I give my take on the taboo of intimacy in both the world and the Church on this episode of the Parker J Cole show. You can call in and chat at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air.

The Parker J Cole Show — Love, Sex, and the Single Christian

In today’s world, what’s the point of NOT having sexual intercourse even though you’re not married? Everyone seems to be doing it. According to hit sitcoms, movies, and all kind of media, single people have great sex. You’re suppose to even. I had a friend tell me recently, “Before I get married, I’d have sex first. You don’t buy a house without a walk-through, do you?”

Yet, there are many single Christian men and women who are out there waiting for the mate God has for them. Day in and Day out, night after night, week after week, month after month, year after year. Staying faithful and true…or are they? Some Christian singles make it look easy. Others make it look like hard. But when it comes to love, sex, and the Single Christian there’s a lot to talk about.

Join me as I chat with Pastor Marcus Gill from Rush United Church as we get to the nitty gritty of this issue and take your questions and comments. We’ll also be discussing Pastor Gill’s book ‘Single GOD Life’.  You can call in at 646-595-2083, press 1 to be live on air.
