He almost killed himself. It was a normal day at work for this prison guard until two men were arrested that were unlike any prisoners he had ever seen. At first he was not impressed by them. But when an earthquake struck one night he started to commit suicide because he thought the prisoners had escaped. One of those two men assured him that all the prisoners were still there. That man was the apostle Paul. The fearless guard came out with a light trembling. He asked the most important question anyone could ask: “What must I do to be saved?” That night a man who came very close to leaving this world in a lost condition was baptized. This is the story of the Philippian jailor in Acts 16.Read about this subjectScriptures: Acts 16:25-34; Acts 22:16, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, I Peter 3:21Reading: “A Jailer Converted”—(Teacher’s Annual Lesson Commentary, Lesson 11, June 11, 1967)Listen to more about this subject:Salvation - "The Plan of Salvation" 
“Beyond Good and Evil” is a book written by the German philosopher Nietzsche. He didn’t believe in moral absolutes. Not surprisingly, Adolf Hitler was one of his fans. Are we beyond good and evil today? Do we think these words have lost meaning? There was a time in Israel when “every man did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25). Centuries later the Roman historian Tacitus said that the ancient city of Rome was so immoral that it was like a common sewer into which the filth of the nations flowed. Are we seeing this same experiment today when men test the God of heaven by denying moral boundaries?  One of the most revealing sections of the Bible on moral anarchy is found in the epistle to the saints in that ancient city. The first two chapters of the book of Romans show that men are still making the same mistakes. It also shows us the only hope in a world full of darkness and confusion.Read about this subjectScriptures: Romans 1:18-32; 2:14-15Right From the Beginning in a World of WrongListen to more about this subject:Salvation - Sin Series 
How can an old book like the Bible address today’s problems? Spend just a few minutes in the book of First Timothy and you’ll be amazed at how current the Bible is. This epistle deals with issues people discuss every day—homosexuality, a Christian’s relationship to government, the role of women in the church, exercise, drinking, money, and much more!Read about this subjectScriptures: The book of I TimothyListen to more about this subject:Bible Commentary: I Timothy 
In a world of war and killing, it might appear that God doesn’t know or doesn’t care what is happening. Even some prophets of God in the Bible couldn’t understand why God didn’t put an end to evil. But God has reasons. He does things in His own time. He takes into account everyone in all ages. Yes, God sees and He cares. More importantly, He is at work in the world in ways we cannot see—even in great and powerful governments. He sets up kings and puts down kings (Dan. 2:21). He rules in the kingdoms of men (Dan. 4:17). And He does this not to toy with nations but to accomplish His purposes, the most important of which is the greatest kingdom of all—the church.Read about this subject:Scriptures: The books of Daniel and Isaiah Listen to more on this subject:American Through the Eyes of Isaiah
“God Looks on Your Inside, Not Your Outside”Have you ever heard that “Man looks on the outward appearance but the Lord looks on the heart”? We’ll talk about this statement in I Samuel 16:7 and discuss what it means for our lives. We’ll also look at some interesting evidence for the divine inspiration of the Bible and consider “partisan politics” from a very different viewpoint than most discussions of politics today. Read about this subject:Scriptures: I Peter 3:15; Daniel 4:17; Isaiah 48:10; II Corinthians 1:3-10“Church, State, and Disease” by Kerry Duke, chapter nine, “The Divine Dimension.”
Do you have a plan for the day you die? Not a will. Not a life insurance policy. Not your things or your business or your savings. Those things are on earth. But you won’t be here. But you will exist after your mortal life ends. Some educated people laughed at the apostle Paul when he taught this almost two thousand years ago, and some today sneer at the suggestion of the afterlife. In this episode we will look at skepticism then and now as well as other pertinent topics.Read about this subject:Scriptures: Acts 17:16-34; Mark 16:9-20Pillars of the Faith, Kerry DukeListen to more on this, “Life After Death” series
How can you teach your children about right and wrong in a mixed-up world? This episode begins with Jewish training in the home according to Deuteronomy 6:4-9 and Psalm 78:4-8. Next, we look at moral values in American history in an old school book called the “Blueback Speller” by Noah Webster. Then Paul’s words in I Timothy 5 about family responsibilities round out our discussion on this urgent topic!Read about this subject:“Right From the Beginning in a World of Wrong” by Kerry Duke —“Children—The Future” by David Hill — to more on this 
Episode DescriptionWas it the government’s fault? Maybe too much entertainment? Or have churches, schools and parents failed us? We need to dig deeper if we want the answer. In this episode we’ll look at a voice from long ago that explains our situation. That source is Romans 1:18-32. This amazing passage describes how a culture goes from admitting God to denying Him and the moral collapse that follows. This is definitely a perspective on history you won’t hear often.Read about this subjectScriptures: Romans 1:18-32; Psalm 19:1-4Pillars of the Faith, Kerry DukeListen to more on this  (“Man” subcategory)

Signs of the End


Does all the trouble in the world mean the end of the world is near? Many think so. But in this episode we’ll see that people have guessed wrong about this many times before our generation. What does God Himself say about this question? Be ready to open your Bible to Matthew 24 and other passages for the answer!Read about this subject:Scriptures: Mark 13:32; II Peter 3:10; I Thessalonians 5:1-3; Matthew 24 1-35Listen to more on this 
Did God promise the land in Israel to the Jewish people—permanently? We hear this discussed from all sides today except God’s side. It all goes back to the promise God made to Abraham in Genesis 12. Was that promise an unconditional guarantee that this land would always belong to the nation of Israel?Read about this subjectScriptures: Gen. 12:1-7; Genesis 13:15; Deuteronomy 28; II Kings 17; II Kings 24; Deuteronomy 30; Nehemiah 1:8-10; Matthew 21:43; Galatians 3:26-29Listen to more on this
A survey from the Cultural Research Center of Arizona Christian University found that only 46% of American adults trust the Bible as the Word of God. Faith in the book, once quoted by politicians and read in schools, is declining. Why? Decades of criticism have taken their toll. Will the book called the "Holy Bible" survive? This episode looks at the sources of criticism of the Bible and the kinds of attacks made against it. You will see that these assaults on the Bible are not new. The Scriptures have withstood intense trials and are still the most widely read in history!Read about this subjectMain Scriptures: Jeremiah 36 and I Peter 1:25Pillars of the Faith, Kerry Duke Listen to more about this subject
