As parents, it’s our responsibility to advocate for our children. But when the culture censors the church and Christian parents, we are stripped of our parental right to equip our children to know right from wrong. – Do not let your voice be silenced! Do NOT leave your kids vulnerable to the lies of this world.

“Be thankful for what you have.” — Most of us have heard this familiar phrase from a well-meaning friend at some point. The problem with this advice is that it turns our attention inward, toward our possessions. This kind of self-focus is thankless by nature. When Christ is the source of our joy, we can live our lives for others. Our joy increases, and worry, fear, and doubt decrease.

The 2020 presidential election has been one of the strangest in history. Would Christians be shocked to know that their religious liberties were the main item on the ballot? In a culture that is more and more aggressively antagonistic to the Christian worldview, how can we be prepared to defend our voice?

Courage is the ability to move forward in the face of adversity, even when it requires moving toward our fears. In this episode, Marie & Greg Seltz talk about how courage requires love, and love requires us to be outward focused. Selfishness smothers that courage and allows fear to bind us. Only when we put our faith in God and allow Him to guide our actions, can we break free from fear. Christ is our example: He courageously took on the yoke of our sins so that we have the strength to be courageous for others. If we’ve lost our courage as an individual or as a society, how do we take off this spirit of fear and selfishness?

In this episode of Thru the Fire, Dr. Marie Seltz and Dr. Greg Seltz examine why it seems families and family values, traditional and otherwise, are under attack in our culture. The Family has been devalued. They discuss the history of the degradation of families in America, some of the reasons for it, and what they witnessed serving in urban missions in some of the country’s roughest neighborhoods. But, more significantly, they consider how we can reverse this destructive cultural and societal trend and how to bring back families as God intended them to exist.

Do you struggle with political correctness while conversing with friends and family? Are you afraid for yourself and your children with the onset of the Cancel Culture in our society? On this episode of Thru the Fire, the husband and wife duo Dr. Marie Seltz and Dr. Gregory Seltz discuss the dangers of Political Correctness and how it has morphed into the Cancel Culture. We have moved from a society of “I don’t want to hear certain truths” to the point of “you can’t say that, and if you do, we’ll punish you!” How did this happen? Why have we moved so far, so fast?
