Today’s Show Notes: Friday, 18th January 2013.

Ray and E.Z. were on K-Wave today!

Dad embarrasses son

There are a lot of embarrassing things in life. How about your dad waving to you as your bus passes by… when you’re in high school!! That was what Rain Price experienced… he just started riding the bus and his dad waved, he felt embarrassed so his dad said “it’s on” and decided to wave every day… in a costume.

Question of the Week Winner!
(Email from Joey) “My question is kinda silly but did Adam have a belly button? I've always wondered.”

Allen answer: I have no idea, lol.
  • Deut. 29:29: “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.”

From GotQuestions.orgA bellybutton is formed by the umbilical cord that connects a baby in the womb to its mother. Adam and Eve were created directly by God, and did not go through the normal birthing process. So, Adam and Eve would probably not have had bellybuttons.

(Email) “I know that the ‘Way of the Master’ concentrates on the 10 Commandments and Bible, but what IF they say....’umm yeah maybe, but i don't believe in Bible, so your 10 Commandments don't pertain to me’?? How would you reply to that?"

Simply. You could side-step the debate and say, “’If’ God judged you by His standards would you be innocent or guilty?” Their conscience is your ally. Just keep going.

If they won’t move on, you could ask if there is absolute right and wrong. If they say no you could ask if it’s ok to take naked pictures of children. It doesn’t hurt them. If they say that’s fine, ask if you can I have their full name and address. Tell them the police and their neighbors would like to know you live in their area.

There are absolutes in life. Fact is, we all have basic morals. Where do we derive them from? What makes right, right and wrong, wrong? It’s not the society or the law. Germany legalized and approved of killing Jewish people. Was that right? It was legal. The society approved it.

Our consciences confirm the truth of the 10 Commandments. We know it’s wrong to steal, and lie, and kill, etc. And at the end of the day, if you still don’t believe in God’s Word or His Law, it doesn’t really change anything. You will still be judged my them. If you say you don’t believe in cars and then walk onto a highway your belief won’t change reality.

Boy’s Passage Man’s Journey

Few things in life work out the way we want without planning. In its most basic form, a plan is straightforward: Set a goal, then determine what steps are needed to achieve that goal. Why, then, do so many families neglect to plan when it comes to raising their children?
In five engaging video conversations with father and actor, Kirk Cameron, Brian Molitor teaches how to create and implement a family plan, and more importantly, how to consistently live it and maintain it.
Primarily designed for fathers and sons, Boy's Passage—Man's Journey is an eye-opening message of how to deliberately and strategically transform young boys into productive and godly men. In addition to the five DVD conversations with Kirk and Brian, the box set includes a 64-page study guide and a 240-page book.
Embracing the concepts learned in this set is vital to advancing the maturation and masculinity of the next generation of men. Manhood is not simply achieved by reaching a certain age; it is planned, earned, and—above all—affirmed by the older males in every boy’s life. Becoming a man does not just happen; it is a process — a boy's passage to a man's journey.

“What can you say if someone says, ‘I’ll wait till I get older.’”
Remember, procrastination is the mother of suffering and excuses are the nails that build the house of failure. People putting the most important decision of their life on the back burner is what keeps hell the hottest spot on the planet. Statistically in the next 24 hours 140,000 people will die and even if you’re not one of them, 10 out of 10 still die. It’s been said, “Live everyday likes it’s your last because some day you’ll be right.” There is no promise for any of us to see another sunrise. Make peace with God now. Don’t console yourself with the thought, “I’ll worry about it later.” Imagine if you won the state lottery’s grand jackpot of $10,000,000. You’re shouting for joy, you’re on the phone excitingly calling all your friends; your big break has finally come. Now let me ask you, would the first thing you do with your new found wealth be to go to Las Vegas and try to triple your money? No, of course not! You’re already a millionaire, why risk it? Remember, right now you have the most valuable possession of all: your life. Don’t gamble with it by ignoring God’s command to follow Jesus. Don’t wait to see if your “luck” will hold out. Death isn’t a “what if,” it’s a “when.” Death is a certainty. Follow Jesus today, you may not have a tomorrow (See 2 Cor. 6:2).
