The Church in China, Pt.3

For the past two days, 'Brother Michael' has given us one of the most important behind-the-scenes tours you're ever likely to experience. Namely, the real lives of underground Christian believers in China. These Christians understand New Testament Christianity. They're living it right now. They also understand better than all of us the urgency of reaching a lost world for Jesus. And they have a plan.

Brother Michael concludes this series with a look at where Chinese Christianity is going in the future and how it will affect all of us.

How to Change a Nation

How do you change the world? One nation at a time.  Of course, that means change at every level, all the way down to the individual. Yet  the power of an individual can be exponentially increased when that single person is yielded and available to a Mighty God.  Norm's wife Cher joins him for this fascinating discussion.

Making the Good News Possible

The good news isn't good news if it's stagnant, tired, lacking vitality. Yet that's the way many see the gospel - as old news. Not around here! At Compassion Radio, the Gospel is good news to us, but just as importantly, it is good news through us. And living water constantly pouring through living vessels never grows stale.

Studying Christian Persecution, Pt. 2

Yesterday began a vital conversation on the state of persecution against Christians in the 21st Century. The 'good news?' There are more faithful disciples of Jesus Christ in the world today than ever before. The 'bad news?' The Devil noticed. Persecution is more intense and the suffering of innocent believers more excruciating than ever.

We need to get our minds - and hearts - around that fact.

Then we can discuss what we can do about it... which is what we'll do on today's program as Norm welcomes back Nicholas Kerton-Johnson.

Studying Christian Persecution, Pt. 1

Why would anyone study "Christian persecution?" Sounds depressing on the face of it, wouldn't you say? Norm's guest today has a very different take on the subject. In fact, we'd say he's got God's take on it. Norm welcomes a new friend: Nicholas Kerton-Johnson.

Teaching the Truth in China, Pt. 3

When Christ moves in, He cleans house. Anywhere He's allowed, that is. Today Bram concludes a powerful interview with Jonathan Leftwich, pastor of the Fellowship at Plum Creek in Kyle, TX.

Teaching the Truth in China, Pt. 2

What do you do when you have a lot to say and you don't speak the language? Well, if you're sharing the love of Christ, you depend on the Spirit of Christ. Today, Bram continues his conversation with Jonathan Leftwich, pastor of the Fellowship at Plum Creek in Kyle, TX. For nine days, Jonathan had the privilege of leading a revival in the most unlikely of places - a government-sponsored church in Eastern China.

Teaching the Truth in China, Pt. 1

It's your first trip to the Far East, China specifically. What would you do with the limited time you have? Explore the cultural landmarks? Get a picture on top of the Great Wall? Pick up a souvenir or two? Not if you're a young pastor named Jonathan Leftwich. He spent his entire nine day visit building the Kingdom of God. And he did it in an unlikely place - a government-controlled church outside of Hong Kong. We'd never heard of a western pastor invited to conduct a revival in such a place, so we just had to hear the story. Now you will, too! Jonathan joins Bram Floria in studio for part 1 of a 3-part series.

Triumph Over Terror

So is the paradox of modern life. All life, actually. As much as world events seem to spiral out of control, there are some remarkably consistent truths that have the unlikely power to give us HOPE where there seems only despair. In this classic from the Compassion Radio archives, Norm and Cher discuss what was a very timely issue. It's still timely, and you might be surprised at how well the answers apply today!

An Earthquake in China, Pt. 2

Norm concludes his conversation with Frank Dunne, Christian and business development specialist that God used in an extraordinary way. In the aftermath of the Sichuan Earthquake, May 12, 2008, the Christians of China rushed to the rescue. It was the first time the government allowed, invited and welcomed the help of its Christian citizens to minister after such a disaster.
00:0000:00

An Earthquake in China, Pt. 1

Frank Dunne had enough on his plate as it was. He was breaking new ground for the Gospel in the high mountains of western China. And then the mountain heaved beneath him, sending hundreds of thousands running for their lives. When others ran the other way, he ran to the very center of the action. In the process, he helped open China to the compassion of their own Christian believers. Frank shares the fascinating story with Norm.
