Jon Tyson — Author of Rumors of God: Experience the Kind of Faith You´ve Only Heard AboutIn his classic work, Mere Christianity, C.S. Lewis likens an encounter with God to coming to life: “This world is a great sculptor’s shop and we are the statues. But there is a rumor going round the shop that some of us are some day going to come to life.” However, today many Christians live with tension. What the Scriptures promise seems like a far cry from what we experience in our lives. As a result, God seems distant, and the life described in the Scriptures seems more like a series of rumors than reality. Does God still do great things today? Is it possible to really experience Him? Can we close the gap between what we hear and what we see?
The Counsel Of Many!Need Help or Advice On An Issue In Your Life?
Tell us your situation and Drew will ask the listeners of TDMS!
This week on the Counsel of Many: a man is confused about what drugs Christians are allowed to use.
"Okay, I’m kinda new to all this Jesus stuff and I’m also a new listener to your show. But it seems like a pretty cool place to be able to ask this question. I’m confused about which drugs I’m allowed to take if I want to be a Christian. For example, some Christians I know drink alcohol, some don’t. Is it bad? Some Christians I know smoke, some don’t. Is it bad? Some use caffeine to get up and wine to mellow out. Are they bad? Some use herbal tea to sleep and some use marijuana. Some use Viagra to get an erection and some use Ritalin to “raise” their kids. I’m not trying to sound like a jerk but I’m confused. Can someone please tell me the drugs I can use, which won’t piss off Jesus?"
Do you believe that dreams are important or just fictional movies for the mind?Have you ever had a dream that came true? Have you ever dreamed something and wondered if God was speaking to you through that dream? Some people are convinced that God speaks to them in dreams while others feel that the mind is an unknown bundle of electronic connections, simply influenced by reams of external stimuli. Do you think God still uses dreams to communicate to us? Can we trust dreams as a communication device of the Almighty?
