Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on August 7, 2017
4:00 – Social Science Apologetics: Is Going to Church Good for your Health?
It’s often been said that people who go to Church tend to lead happier, healthier and more stress-free lives. A new study from Vanderbilt supports this. According to the study, people who attend worship services may reduce their mortality risk by 55 percent – especially those between the ages of 40 and 65. We’ll take a look with Dr. Greg Popcak.
4:20 – The Untold Side of the ISIS Nightmare
The majority of news coverage regarding ISIS has focused on the terror group’s atrocities. We’ve seen photos and videos of victims beheaded, burned, thrown off buildings and even crucified – horrific images that stay with us for years. But even in the darkness of this unspeakable evil, we can find the light of Christ. With terror on the rise, Muslims are coming to the Christian faith like never before. Charles Morris joins us to share the miraculous ways in which Christ is transforming lives in the Middle East.
5:00 – With so much Turmoil in the White House, Why are the Markets so Stable?
The first eight months of the Trump presidency haven’t exactly been stable. He’s been heavily criticized for his refugee policy, Congress’ failure to repeal and replace Obamacare, and his alleged connections with Russia. Several White House staff members have resigned or been fired. With such turmoil, one would expect the stock market to be fickle – but it’s been just the opposite. The Dow reached another high last week, closing above 22,000 for the first time ever. Why? We’ll talk with Brian Milligan.
5:20 – The Catholic Doctor behind Football’s Concussion Debate
A recent study examined the brains of 202 deceased former football players, including 111 players from the NFL. 177 of the brains showed evidence of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, more commonly known as CTE. It’s the latest step in an ongoing debate over whether football is worth the risk, a discussion that has been spearheaded by Dr. Bennet Omalu, who first found CTE in former football players in 2005. Since then he has faced enormous obstacles but has been buoyed by his strong faith and desire for truth. He joins us.
