Special Guests

  • Gary Chapman
    Author of Author of The Five Languages of Apology
    Did you know that when it comes to apologizing, people speak different languages? The key to good relationships is learning the apology language of the other person and being willing to speak it. When you speak their primary language, you make it easier for them to genuinely forgive you. When you fail to speak their language, it makes forgiveness more difficult because they are not sure if you are genuinely apologizing! Gary is best known as the author of the New York Times best-selling The Five Love Languages series. He is the director of Marriage and Family Life Consultants, Inc., and travels around the world presenting various seminars. Gary's radio program airs on more than 100 stations.

I've seen first hand the incredible impact your money has with Compassion. YOU CAN TRUST THEM! This Christmas, will you please sponsor a child through Compassion Canada?
    If not you, then who? If not now, then when?

Journey

  • Tammy Trent
    Recording Artist & Author of Learning To Breath Again
    In September 2001, Tammy and her husband spent a few days in Jamaica - part mission trip, part vacation. On September 10th, Trent went diving and never returned. Tammy spent the rest of the day with rescue divers trying to locate her husband with no success. She woke up the next morning in the home of strangers to discover that the whole world had gone mad. As she waited for news of her husband, she watched the news as two planes ploughed into the Twin Towers in New York - later that day she had to identify the body of her husband. No one in her family could get to her as flights were cancelled. She was held captive in Jamaica for ten more days waiting to return to her family. We had Tammy as our guest in 2005 so we thought we would touch base and see how life has been going for Tammy Trent.

Talkback, etc.

  • Which is the best way for someone to apologize to you? Does it really make a difference?
    • Expressing Regret: "I am sorry."
    • Accepting Responsibility: "I was wrong."
    • Making Restitution: "What can I do to make it right?"
    • Genuinely Repenting: "I'll try not to do that again."
    • Requesting Forgiveness: "Will you please forgive me?"

  • Saturday Survey - What's the most useless Christmas gift ever?
    Can you remember the worst one you've ever given or received? Chia Pet? Socks? Underwear? Gym membership? Black Magic Chocolates?

  • Do you think that God still heals?
    Am I the only one who thinks that genuine, supernatural, physical healing is possible... but incredibly rare? Have you been verifiably, physically healed? Or have you just heard "stories" of physical healings and were they all internal and therefore hard to prove?

Journey

Carla is one of those people. 11 years ago she gave birth to a child with serious medical problems, so severe that many encouraged her to abort. As well, just before Christmas a couple of years ago, her father took his own life with a gun , in the same house where she grew up living in terror as this same man abused a number of family members. Where is God in all of this?

Talkback, etc.

  • Same sex marriage is now here to stay in Canada. Any final thoughts?
    Are you upset with Stephen Harper, our "Christian" Prime Minister? For the second time, MPs voted in favour of same-sex marriage in Canada. Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he will respect the vote, adding "we made a promise to have a free vote on this issue, we kept that promise, and obviously the vote was decisive and obviously we'll accept the democratic result of the people's representatives." Harper told reporters "I don't see reopening this question in the future." MPs voted 175-123 against a motion asking whether MPs wanted to see legislation drafted to reinstate the traditional definition of marriage. The House of Commons legalized same-sex marriage in June 2005. Audio not available

  • Eric Sandras — Author of Plastic Jesus
    Sadly, if Jesus came in plastic, we just might find Him more to our liking. Suburbia might be a fine place to raise a family, but it's a terrifying and dangerous environment for our spiritual well being. Many of us have exchanged the challenge and vitality of Christ's plan for our lives for the ease of a plastic, soul-numbing, comfort-first mentality. Edgy and honest, Eric Sandras seeks to empower readers to live life as Christ intended: with a radical sense of purpose that only He can provide.

Journey

  • Ted DiBiase — Wrestling's "Million Dollar Man"

In addition, Ted is also a spokesperson for and board member of "The Sunshine Foundation," an organization that grants wishes to and tries to meet the needs of terminally ill and handicapped children. The character of the "Million Dollar Man" was fulfilled by wealth and power and controlled by greed. In contrast, the real Ted DiBiase is fulfilled by his relationship with Jesus Christ and his family, and a controlling desire to do God's will in his life.

Talkback, etc.

  • Are some professions off limits if you claim to be a Christian?
    WWF Wrestler - Boxer - Ultimate Fighter - Fashion Model - Football or Hockey Player? How about a Lawyer or Politician?

  • Do you agree with the decision of a Christian school to kick one of their students out because her mother was a stripper?
    If you had a child enrolled there, would you want them being friends with children who might be living in a home with a questionable lifestyle? I mean, isn't that one of the reasons you pulled little Billy out of the secular school system in the first place?

  • Have Christian trinkets gone too far? How many do you have?
    Talking Jesus dolls, WWJD bracelets, sandals that leave the imprint of "Jesus Loves You" in the sand, and those cheesy Christian bumper stickers and t-shirts... how much of this crap do you own? Do you think it really "works"? Will you attempt to "witness" to someone this Christmas in such sly and cunning ways?

  • Steve Turner — Author of The Gospel According to the Beatles

  • Helen
    Imagine being excommunicated from your church because you made the choice to reach out to your daughter who was also excommunicated from the same church. Then, not only does your church kick you out, but so does your husband! Helen visits us from Australia with one of the most shocking stories of spiritual abuse you have ever heard in your life!

Talkback, etc.

  • Should churches be kicking people out more often these days?
    Christian couples living together NO, but wife beaters YES? Smokers NO, but drunkards YES? Overeaters NO, but Homosexuals YES? The local sleazy car salesman NO, but the town whore YES? This is a tough one people. LOVE - GRACE - FORGIVENESS - DISCIPLINE... To judge or not to judge, is this the question? Have a read of 1 Corinthians 5 then give us a call!

  • Is the "n-word" really that offensive?
    Has politically correct insanity hijacked freedom of speech or are we just more enlightened then the days of Archie Bunker? Every race group has some sort of slang word used to represent them. (Paki, Nigger, Wap, Kraut, Pollack, Jew, Jap, Chink, Spick, and yes... even CRACKER!) So what happened to "sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me"?

  • Should spanking be outlawed in Canada?
    United Nations special envoy, Stephen Lewis, and the president of UNICEF Canada, Nigel Fisher, are both calling on the federal government to rewrite the section of the Criminal Code that allows parents to spank their children. Do you think spanking should be made illegal or if done properly, is spanking actually a form of healthy discipline and love?

Talkback, etc.

  • If your child disappeared, do you that think your faith could withstand it?
    A little honesty here, people! Imagine it! Think it through! Eventually, could you possibly imagine yourself rejecting the reality of a God who hasn't answered your gut-wrenching cries for help? Maybe He wasn't even there to begin with?

  • Marriage! How have you survived it? Any tips or advice?
    A survey to hopefully help all of us! If you've been married for any lasting duration, how the heck have you done it? Please, just give us battlers at least one tip on how to make it last!

  • Should Christians be watching TV or renting movies at all these days?
    Does your family have any rules for watching or not watching something? Or do you feel that Christians are always making too big a deal of the whole "Be careful what you watch or you might do bad stuff yourself" thing?

    In 100 days - between April 6 and July 16, 1994 - an estimated 800,000 men, women and children were brutally killed in the African country of Rwanda. The victims - many horrifically hacked to death with machetes - were Tutsi, and moderate Hutus who supported them. General Dallaire was asked by the United Nations to ensure that peace was maintained in Rwanda. But he was criminally unsupported by U.N. headquarters and its Security Council in New York. Dallaire and his handful of soldiers were incapable of stopping the genocide. All he could do was Shake Hands With The Devil! This Remembrance Day, let us not forget the people of Rwanda.

Talkback, etc.

  • Do you feel sorry for Ted Haggard or are you angry about yet another high profile pastor's secret life of sin?
    Ted Haggard used to be the president of the National Association of Evangelicals (30 million members) and senior pastor of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs. Last week though, a Denver man claims that Haggard paid him for sex nearly every month for three years and sometimes took methamphetamine during their sexual rendezvous. So now, one of America's 25 most influential evangelicals with the ear of President Bush, has been shamed and fired. Dr. James A. Beverley joined us in this discussion. Jim is the Associate Director of the Institute for the Study of American Religion in Santa Barbara, California and a Professor at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto, Canada. Dr. Beverley's specialities include studies in World and New Religions, Charismatic Christianity, Roman Catholic Theology, and Christian Ethics.

  • The Saturday Survey - Has the war in Iraq gone on long enough or should they stay and finish the job? When is enough, enough?
    Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld gets dumped, President Bush's tone has changed remarkably after the Democrats tighten the noose... has the war in Iraq gone on too long? (We talked with our favourite intelligent American, Dean McGlynn)

  • The United Church of Canada has spent $10 million to get people back into a church where they are leaving by the droves. Was this a good use of money? Would you be happy if your denomination did this?
    The United Church of Canada has launched a new $10.5 million advertising campaign in an attempt to get people back into their church. One of the advertisements shows a wedding cake with two groom figurines and asks the question: "Does anyone object?" Another shows a whipped cream bottle in the fridge along with the question: "How much fun can sex be before it's a sin?" The project is the largest campaign ever for the church and will include advertisements in magazines, community newspapers and on the Internet. A website, www.WonderCafe.ca, has been launched where all of the print advertisements can be viewed and it even has a discussion lounge where the controversial topics can be discussed.

  • Josh Weidmann — Author of "Dad, If You Only Knew...Eight Things Teens Want to Tell Their Fathers (but don't)"
    As exasperating as parenting can be during these volatile years, your teen is depending on you for steady faithfulness, love, and guidance. And because teens often find words elusive and expression difficult, they probably haven't told you the things they wish you somehow automatically knew. Josh Weidmann, just out of the teen years himself, joins his father, James, to help dads understand where their kids are coming from.

  • Ron Hannah — President of Promise Keepers Canada
    President of Promise Keepers Canada
    In 1980 Ron had a good job, was raising a family, and had a wonderful wife. Ron felt called to take his relationship with God to the next level. He asked God to use him in any way He wanted. Then things took a bad turn in Ron's life. His wife was diagnosed with a rare form of Cancer and died two years later. He lost interest in his job as Vice President of Duracell and left. Asking God what he should do for the rest of his life, God led Ron to join the team at Promise Keepers Canada.

Journey

  • Pastor Peter Rigo
    We'll speak with the Pastor of the Dominion Christian Centre in Hamilton, the church featured last week on CTV's "W-5." We'll get Peter's thoughts on the W-5 expose, which claimed that he's a controlling and manipulative leader of a cult who has convinced many of his parishioners to abandon their families for the church.

Talkback, etc.

  • Did you catch CTV's "W-FIVE" expos
    Your chance to call in and speak with the pastor of the DCC! What are your thoughts? Is something just not right here or are we over reacting to media hype?

  • Did you have a problem with Drew interviewing a witch last week?
    We only received one official complaint from someone who said that their family "actively chose not to listen" to the program. So we thought we'd ask all of you... did we cross the line by interviewing the High Priest of The Wiccan Church of Canada? (By the way, what does it say about Christians, that we received far more complaints when we interviewed Amy Grant?)

  • More calls about the witch interview and closing comments from Dr. James Beverley on Wicca.

  • Kim Paffenroth — Author of Gospel of the Living Dead: George Romero's Visions of Hell on Earth
    "Zombies are back," the New York Times declared recently, reporting a new crop of zombie films, books, and computer games. Why the enduring fascination with the undead? It's more than just gore: zombie movies offer insights into human nature, and even into theological concepts such as sin and redemption, says Kim Paffenroth, a scholar known for his studies of Saint Augustine and Flannery O'Connor. He turns his attention to the master of the zombie flick, George A. Romero, in his new book, Gospel of the Living Dead: George Romero's Visions of Hell on Earth.

Journey

  • Richard James — High Priest of The Wiccan Church of Canada
    It seems to be more reputable and authentic to consider "primary source material" and actually ask a Wiccan about what Wiccans believe! Richard joins us to clear up any misunderstandings we might have about witchcraft, Wicca, white witches, dark witches... which witch is which!

Talkback, etc.

  • Everything you wanted to know about witchcraft and Wicca but were AFRAID to ask!
    A once in a lifetime opportunity to call in with your questions for the High Priest of The Wiccan Church of Canada.

  • What do you do for Halloween? Hide in your back room with the lights off?
    Same question every year at this time... what is a Christian supposed to do on Halloween? Do you take your kids trick or treating? Does your church have a "Halloween Alternative"? Do you go to the office Halloween Party or do you stand outside and boycott? Why do you do what you do, or don't do?

  • Do you think that we can communicate with the dead?
    Sometimes people have dreams of a deceased loved one... dreams that seem so real and bring such comfort. Are these a blessing from God, a trick of Satan or just our sub-conscious minds taking us to a familiar place? What about when a medium or channeler tells you things that only the deceased would know? How about praying to Mary?

  • Do you visit the grave of your loved one very much or hardly at all?
    And on a slightly different matter, if your loved one was killed in the World Trade Center, would you want the remains they just found to be tested to see if there was a match? Or would it really matter to you at all? Just how attached are you to the dead?

  • Spencer Burke — Author of A Heretic's Guide To Eternity
    "Christianity needs less religion and more heresy," says this former "Megachurch" pastor, now labeled by many, including himself, as a heretic! "Frankly, I was tired of consuming the resources of the church. I didn't want to just tell people what Jesus said we should do; I wanted to actually go do it with my community." He now lives out his faith with what the Los Angeles Times called "a church with no name"- gathering in a small group wherever the spirit moves them: in his home, garage, at a picnic in the park, or at an art gallery. "People have accused me over the years of not paying enough attention to Scripture, but the truth is, I have these crazy thoughts about love and grace and all the rest precisely because I do read the Bible. And Jesus, as far as I can tell, was the original heretic."

Journey

His company produced more than a million pornographic images and hundreds of videos, and Donny's models appeared in publications owned by Playboy, Hustler, Penthouse, and numerous other adult entertainment companies. Donny's porn career ended on Monday, September 25, 2006... the day he invited God to retake control of his life.

Talkback, etc.

  • Gossip... We all do it! But is there ever a time when it's actually appropriate to gossip?
    Is just talking about someone gossip? Only if it's negative? Is it all right to seek advice about a conflict you're in with someone, in order to expedite resolution? Is it okay to talk about someone as long as your motives and attitude are in check and it doesn't become a lifestyle or habit? Maybe this is more about the spirit than the letter of the law! Maybe I just want to gossip and not feel guilty!

  • Legalism... In your opinion, what are some dumb church rules?
    We spoke with Pastor Wayne Boadway from Royal City Baptist Church in Guelph, a church known for it's fairly strict and some would say "legalistic" views on Doctrine and Theology.

  • Should Madonna and husband, Guy Ritchie, have been allowed to adopt David, a 13-month-old boy from Malawi?
    Human rights groups are challenging the adoption, claiming that Madonna used her fame and her donations of millions to an orphanage in Malawi to speed up the normal legal process. Should they have been allowed to adopt David, even though he has a father in Malawi? Would it have been better for him to remain in Malawi with his birth father?

    Ron remembers what poverty was like as a preschooler and a teenager. How simple acts of kindness shaped his attitudes and gave him a chance to break the cycle of poverty in his own life, by giving him a strong work ethic and a compassionate heart.

  • Toronto gets approval for a new Gay radio station but a Catholic station is rejected?? Is this something worth protesting over?
    Canada's broadcast regulator, the CRTC, has approved a full-time homosexual radio station in Toronto, a city where about 2 million of our 4.5 million, identify themselves as Catholic. This compared to many surveys, which have demonstrated that only 1% of Canadians identify as homosexual.

  • Is the bikini is too skanky for a Christian girl to wear?
    We recently celebrated 60 years of the bikini! But is it appropriate these days, for Christian girls to be wearing bikinis? What about the whole, "If it causes your brother to stumble..." thing? And then there's the whole "Muffin Top" phenomenon! And we don't even want to talk about Speedos or thongs!!!

  • Do you know of someone who has experienced immigration or residency problems?

    Every church has conflict, some to the point of division.

How does a teenage boy cope with the reality that his mother may not be around for that much longer? What does this do to his Journey of Faith?

Talkback, etc.

  • Should ministries borrow money and then expect their supporters to help pay it off?
    Does this bother you at all? Shouldn't we be "trusting God" to bring in the money BEFORE we make any big moves? Maybe better fiscal planning and budgetary confines would be a healthier alternative and God just might actually bless this sort of responsibility? Should ministries be in debt?

  • What is the #1 spiritual discipline that helps you grow spiritually?
    Go to church - Read the Bible - Pray - Join a small group...Which one is the most important? Are there any other ones you'd like to share which have helped you?

  • Saturday Survey: Are you happy with the government's proposal to raise the age of consensual sex from 14 to 16? Why?
    Do you think it will really make any difference? Should the government even try to legislate morality in a secular society? If this new law passes, 14 and 15 year olds who want to have sex must do so with a partner who is less than five years older. The gay community is upset (what else is new?) because gay males still aren't allowed to have anal sex until they are 18.

And to cap it all off, James is claiming that the Knights of Columbus, which finances the Ontario Catholic Youth Leadership Camp where he worked, is shutting down the camp after learning that he was gay.

  • Professor Margaret Somerville
    Ryerson students and faculty members wore rainbow-coloured stickers and clothes protesting against the university granting an honorary degree to McGill University ethicist Margaret Somerville. She is against same-sex marriage but supports gay rights. As she accepted the degree, two faculty members at the ceremony held up a banner saying, "My Ryerson honours equal rights", and others turned their backs in protest. Several faculty members refused even to attend the event. Former guest on TDMS, gay minister Brent Hawkes, said the protest won't stop until the university "rescinds" Somerville's degree! Ryerson's president said the school might not have offered Somerville the degree if it had known there would be such an angry reaction.

Talkback, etc.

  • How should a Christian ministry respond when they discover that one of their employees is openly gay?
    Should they fire the person? Is this even legal? What if they're just a volunteer? What if they've signed a "code of conduct" upon commencement of employment?

  • "Gay Pride" or "Gay Arrogance"?
    Is it just me or is the whole "gay pride" and "gay rights" thing going too far these days? Doesn't it seem like it's "gay arrogance?" Do heterosexuals feel like your rights are now being infringed upon? Is liberal democracy slowly eroding the rights of the majority? "Freedom of expression" and "equal rights" seems to be rather self serving in the gay community these days.

  • Is multiculturalism actually the cause of terrorism in Toronto?

Talkback, etc.

  • Do you think we're making too much of a deal about environmental issues or not enough?
    Why is it that when Christians who care about the environment go on conservative talk shows, they get ripped apart and not supported? Why is the environment predominately a Liberal issue? Isn't it the Bible believing Christian who is especially supposed to be a "good steward" of God's creation? Then why do we hardly ever hear messages on this in church? Hey, if the conservative evangelicals won't do what's right, don't get all stupid about the Liberals or New Ager's taking up the slack!

  • When was the last time you had something "supernatural" happen to you?

    The BCTAF - "Biblical Clarification Through Amendment Foundation" - spearheaded by Christian leaders, wants to add three verses to Scripture to clarify misconceptions and confusion about debates within the Evangelical church. The three issues BCTAF are pushing forward, pertain to the way in which we aid the poor, regional church priorities and drinking alcohol. (Sit back and enjoy this remarkable piece of satire! Isn't this the underlying message behind what a lot of the Christian agenda? Don't we add to the Bible in so many ways?)

  • Should couples stay together just for the kids, or should they face the music and just divorce?
    There seems to be a growing trend towards couples staying together for the sake of the kids. Are you and your spouse doing this? When they get old enough, are you planning on divorcing? What age do your children need to be, before the damage and impact becomes "minimal?" If you're in a "loveless" marriage, do you think God wants more for you?

  • Does swearing bother you? Do you swear casually?
    Would you say something to someone who was swearing around you? Do you use words that were considered swear words 20 years ago but aren't today? Which swear words offend you and which ones don't? (How the heck are we gonna do this friggin' topic on the stinkin' radio?)

    Brenda has experienced the life of a Pastor's wife! She has experienced both the highs and the abusive lows of being married to the church's "Bull's Eye!"

Talkback, etc.

  • Will you watch the Ron Howard & Tom Hanks film, "The DaVinci Code" or will you boycott it?
    Some people are saying that Christians shouldn't see it, some people are saying they should actually see another movie that week (because that's what Hollywood will notice) and still others are saying that Christians should see it so that we're able to engage in conversation with those in our circles who might be confused by this movie's fictional message!

  • Do you know of a pastor who has been abused by their church? How about their wife or kids?
    We hear story after story of pastors being hung out to dry, over-worked, abused by "Board Members" or congregants, their wives gossiped about and the kids expected to be perfect little angels! Why does this happen? How can we stop it? What can we do to protect or encourage our pastors? Has it happened to you? What have you done for your pastor lately?

  • Should the U.S. Government step in and save the life of an Afghani Muslim who converted to Christianity?
    Isn't this the country that Americans rid of the Taliban because of its religious oppression? Isn't this the country where American's have spent at least $70 billion to establish a free democratic government, and it cost American's 300 American lives and 800 casualties? And now they want to execute a man for becoming a Christian after he saw other Christians caring for his own countrymen. Or should the Yanks just stay out of it?

Journey

  • Marty Angelo
    A former major music industry executive who worked and partied with the great names of Rock n' Roll - Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, John Lennon… just to name a few, Marty got caught up in the whole sex, drugs, booze and crime thing of the 70's and 80's until finally he was busted for using and selling cocaine! Man... what a story this guy has. And it's all in his book called, "Once Life Matters - A New Beginning."

Talkback, etc.

  • Does God love homosexuals or does he want to destroy them?
    After last week's show we got an email from a self proclaimed “Prophet to the nation of CANADA” who spoke the Righteous Right Hand of his GOD, be against Drew and his radio program. He feels that the Bible is clear that gays & lesbians should be stoned! We still say that God made them and God loves them… what say you?

  • Do you think that "street preachers" do more harm than good?
    When you walk through the city, are you embarrassed by the loudmouths for Jesus? Or are you impressed by their boldness?

  • Are short-term mission trips really worth it?
    VISION TV PRESS RELEASE - "Every year, as many as four million North American Christians travel to developing countries on "short-term missions." They visit for a week or two, work with the poor, spread the gospel, and return home feeling the warm glow of Christian fellowship. It's idealistic, admirable and - according to some experts - almost completely useless. In a special two-part documentary report, March 20 and 27 at 10 p.m. ET, the VisionTV current affairs series "360 Vision" looks at the short-term mission phenomenon, and finds out why many people in developing nations wish that missionaries would just stay home. Critics charge that most of the money spent on missions goes to pay for hotels and airfare, and that the poor benefit little from these flying visits."
    To find out more, we speak with 360 Vision's Kevin O'Keefe!

Talkback, etc.

  • Should Christian Universities engage gay activists in dialogue or not even give them the time of day? Should gay or lesbian students be expelled from Christian Universities?
    Jacob Reitan explains to us the reason for the protest rallies at various Christian Universities and Colleges, which discriminate against gay and lesbian students. In other words, gays and lesbians can go there, they just can't be gay or lesbian. Like this weekend for example, they were arrested at Liberty University, because big Jerry Falwell warned that they would be arrested if they stepped foot on the campus.

  • Is it OK for a Christian to go out on a date with an un-believer?
    We're talking, just one date! It just seems that there's a definite shortage of quality Christian guys and members of Christian singles groups seem to play so many games... so what's wrong with going out on just ONE date with someone who hasn't quite landed on the same spiritual path as you... YET! Anne Sharp joins us briefly to talk about her dating life! Anne is an independent publicist with 17 years of experience in corporate marketing & PR with major international companies such as Toyota, Sony Pictures, and Disney.

  • Would you go to a dead police horse's funeral?
    Recently, a Toronto police horse was killed in the line of duty and almost 1500 came to the service... children skipped school and people took a day off work! A little while ago in Dallas, people were OUTRAGED when Police shot and killed a Gorilla who escaped from the Zoo and mauled 3 people including a 3-year old. What's the most you would pay the vet to fix your pet? Are you one of those nutcases that put animal's rights over humans? Do you think "Sparky" will go to Heaven? (This segment proudly sponsored by PURINA... where one person's pet becomes food for yours!)

Talkback, etc.

  • Do you think there are people who are so evil that they just need a bullet?
    The only thing that will help them is the death penalty or maybe a sound beating from Chuck Norris. Are you in favour of Capitol Punishment?

  • Should a divorced Christian get married again?
    Isn't remarriage going against God's Word? Aren't we justifying it because of our own selfish desires... Loneliness, sexual intimacy, a fresh start and chance for new love? Or is there total freedom in this issue?

  • Do you have to get baptized in order to get to heaven?
    Is Baptism necessary for Salvation? How do we interpret this in light of Mark 16:16 & Acts 2:38?

Talkback, etc.

  • Do you buy into the "prosperity doctrine?"
    Does God really want you to own a large house, nice cars and a yacht? If you get sick, is it really as a result of "un-confessed sin" in your life? Can someone please explain this?

  • USELESS TELEVISION TRIVIA!
    The MOST requested segment on The Drew Marshall Show! (Gives you an indication of the calibre of our callers!)

  • Drew's Community Corner!
    Every week we get emails from people wanting to announce stuff on our show. Well we just can't do that. Aside from the fact that it makes for incredibly boring radio, people outside of our listening area just don't give a rip! So we put this segment together to take care of all those requests at once. But it's way too boring to put it up online!

Talkback, etc.

  • Ever wanted to ask an ex-Jehovah's Witness why they left the organization?
    Peter Mosier was a previous guest on our show who grew up in a Jehovah's Witness family, then came to the realization that what he was being raised to believe wasn't standing up to scrutiny. Subsequently, he put together a fantastic website, simply showing primary resource material (stuff JW's say about themselves and their beliefs) then highlighted various points of interest... things to make you say "Hmmm!" The WatchTower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania sued Peter, seeking a reported $100,000 in damages and a court order to silence the website. Well, they achieved their goal... they silenced Peter's website! But another one popped up!
    Peter Mosier takes your calls!

  • Should a parent ever kick their teenager out of the house?
    Is this something that a "good Christian" parent should do? Could you do it?

Journey

Talkback, etc.

Journey

Talkback, etc.

  • What do you think is the #1 reason for the escalating violence in our major cities?
    Is there anything we can do or is it just inevitable? Do we need the Guardian Angels? Do you even think it's that big a deal or has the press just made this their "flavour of the day?"

  • What's your advice?
    We recently got an email requesting prayer from you folks, about a very tricky situation. Other than asking you to pray for this woman, we sought your advice! She finds herself wanting to not live together with the father of her child because he is not a follower of Christ and she is struggling spiritually. He is refusing to do any pre-marriage counselling and has told her that he doesn't want to marry her just yet. What do you think she should do?

  • If someone feels that God is going to heal a person who is only weeks away from dying, should they tell that person, or would it be better to just keep it to themselves?
    Doesn't it seem that too many people use the whole... "God told me to tell you..." thing, only to find out later that they must have "misheard" God?

  • Who do you think won the recent National Leader's Debates?
    Did you watch? Do you care? Do you think Stephen Harper might actually become our next Prime Minister?

  • Should pastors fly First Class?
    The wife of Joel Osteen, pastor of the natio's largest church, was apparently asked to leave a plane after she failed to comply with a flight attendant's instructions, according to the FBI. However, since we all know we can't trust the press, consider this:
    -The FBI told Drew that they feel the whole thing is a "non-issue."
    -Continental refused to make any comment... NICE! More than a little suspicious.
    -A representative from Joel Osteen's mega-church made some very compelling points.
    SO... we thought the bigger question was actually... Why were they even flying First Class in the first place?

  • Is it ever right to lie?
    Think about it... we all know that lying is a sin. But what about encouraging your child at a sport or interest in which he or she is totally useless, with words like, "Wow, are you ever good at that, Billy!"? Or, what if a killer, who is chasing a woman (whom you just saw go into a store to hide), asks you if you saw her? Do you think there are occasions when you know you'd probably lie?

  • BRAG ON YOUR PASTOR!
    Some people have said that Drew is too hard on pastors and that he needs to be more positive and talk about "happy" things. So this is your opportunity to call in and ... "Brag On Your Pastor!" The pastor with the most amount of brags will be invited onto the show in the near future to share their spiritual journey.
