Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on July 16, 2019
4:00 – How Acts 15 Led Me to the Church
After nearly 30 years as a devout Protestant, Joshua Charles decided last year to become Catholic and was received into the Church this summer. As he considered his conversion and studied the Scriptures, he was deeply impacted by the Council of Jerusalem recounted in Acts 15. He joins us with a look at how he was drawn to the Church and “slapped across the face by the Church fathers.”
5:00 – Venezuela’s Rule of Law Crumbles under Maduro
The situation in Venezuela has not improved and in fact the situation may be worse than previously thought. A new UN report details wide-ranging government abuses against political opponents, including more than 5,000 killings dating back to last year. The report says that Venezuelan Special Forces carried out these murders against political opponents and then manipulated the scene to make it look as if the victims were resisting arrest. We get the latest from Cody Weddle.
5:20 – Following the Footsteps of St Paul
