Baptism and Covenant Theology
Many Christians have questions about baptism. Are only believers to be baptized? Is it ok to baptize infants? Today, C.N. and Brolo discuss this topic and C.N. will reveal the theology behind it, and why there may be more than meets the eye, regardless of what side of the discussion you are on, today on CROSS & Culture.

A Reverence for History
The fringe extremists in America want you to believe we need to rip apart the remembrance of our history. But is that a wise thing to do?  Does history have a place in our lives?   Today, Chris explores the Biblical concept of HISTORY and how it is spoken of in Scripture and how Christians are to understand and use history in their own lives.   You NEED to understand how to engage this discussion, as the world continues to move at a torrid pace toward changing everything and reestablish a new history, built in their own image.    Please remember to subscribe, and donate to the GOFUNDME page, as CROSS  & Culture is seeking to grow and allow a faster pace to get to the freedom to create more content for you.

Hiding the Word in Your Heart
How much of our attention belongs to the world? Are we still captivated in awe with Christ? Perhaps the reason we struggle with our heart and struggle with many sins is that we have not given God's word the proper place in our hearts. If we fail to guard the place that belongs only to God, our awe of Him will surely not be what it ought to be; join me today, as I discuss this from Psalm 119:9-16.  Also, brief comments on COVID-19 guidance update which should be a bigger deal than it is in the news; the Michael Flynn case, and Mail-In Ballots. Please join me on CROSS & Culture.

H.R. Bill 6800 certainly has its flaws, but what are some of the highlights of this bill, and is it something we, as Christians, can embrace? Also, we all know that anger is alive and well in the world, and even sometimes in the Church. How do we, as Christians, begin to learn to diffuse the anger that is within us so that we can walk humbly with our God and for His purposes? Join me on CROSS & Culture!
