Hour 2:

America teeters on a precipice. In the midst of financial turmoil, political uncertainty, declining morality, the constant threat of natural disasters, and a myriad of other daunting challenges, many wonder what the future holds for this once-great nation. Is America an empire in decline or a nation poised for a historic Renaissance? Will history’s greatest democracy stage a miraculous comeback, returning to the forefront of the world’s economic and spiritual stage? Can America’s religious past be repeated today with a third Great Awakening? Or will the rise of China, Russia, and other nations, coupled with the U.S.’s internal struggles, send her into a decline from which there can be no return? This special will help listeners understand the economic, social, and spiritual challenges facing the United States in the 21st century, through the lens of biblical prophecy.

Why did family shows like the Cosby Show, Seventh Heaven & Home Improvement disappear? Not without good reason – and that good reason isn’t that these shows are too ‘old-style’.

From the LA Times:

“…the family unit itself has markedly changed since the mid-1970s, when the Federal Communications Commission pressured the top three networks to institute a “family viewing hour” from 8 to 9 p.m. Over the last four decades — as divorce and single parenthood climbed sharply — the percentage of children younger than 18 living in a two-parent household slid from roughly 85% to 67%, according to statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau. Meanwhile, the family viewing hour policy, born from protests about the rising tide of sex and violence on TV in the early 1970s, was scrapped by the courts within a couple of years, leaving the networks to pledge their best effort in maintaining suitable family programming in that prime-time hour.

The dearth of family programming today can also be traced to a longstanding tension between the major networks and the creative community, which has gravitated toward darker and edgier material, particularly as cable became more of a force in Hollywood, said TV historian Tim Brooks.”

Loving vs. “being in love”. Can you keep the “glamour” in your marriage? If not, why not?

Male leadership in marriage. Why does a marriage need ‘veto power’ in either the man or the woman? Why need it at all? Permanence of marriage has something to do with it…

Patriarchy outdated? Some interesting & unexpected comments on this topic in the documentary Demographic Winter. Trailer here.

Also, should the world be expected to live up to the demands of biblical marriage? No.

The audio is an extract taken from “Mere Christianity”, probably the most famous book by C.S. Lewis.

“…a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” Gen 2:24

No wonder divorce should be considered more as an ’emergency absolute last resort surgery’ than dissolving of a business partnership or social arrangement.
