Dear Lina: Is God anti-gay?

Debates about gender and sexuality are not going to go away any time soon. Just this week, Pope Francis endorsed civil union laws for same-sex couples, breaking from the official teaching of the Roman Catholic Church. How should Christians respond to the modern attitudes towards homosexuality? Is God homophobic? And how are we to relate to those who experience same-sex attraction?

Marriage in the Middle – A Conversation with Dorothy Littell Greco

Dorothy Littell Greco’s new book Marriage in the Middle: Embracing Midlife Surprises, Challenges, and Joys is so profound, true-to-real-life, well-researched, practical, thought-provoking, and hope-giving, that I can’t help but share about it! In today’s podcast you’ll hear a conversation around the topic of midlife and marriage that I believe has the potential to change and improve your marriage!

Dear Lina: How do I honor the Lord with my vote?

With this year’s presidential election just around the corner we can all feel the tension, conflict and disagreement build up even between Christians. How can we honor the Lord with our vote as conscientious Christians? Should we choose the “lesser of two evils”? Should we vote for a third-party candidate? Should we choose not to vote? In today’s episode we’ll look at three general rules grounded in Scripture that should inform our decision.

Dear Lina: Is wearing masks necessary and the way to show you love your neighbor?

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us into a new way of life that has brought fears, uncertainty, and tensions, and the wearing of face masks has become one of the most contentious issues. As a doctor on the forefront of the pandemic crisis I have been asked many times how do I respond to this controversy. So today I’ll answer a question related to masks and love of our neighbor.

Dear Lina: How should I submit to government when I don’t agree with it?

The more post-Christian we become the more tensions we’ll have with government rules and regulations. I believe today’s question is a timely one and will help us discern how to honor the government but still live by our conscience and God’s principles.
