In ‘On the Edge with Ken Harrison,’ James Robison Shares His Story of Overcoming Fatherlessness and How He Became a Sought-after Televangelist Who Shares God’s Vision for His Church

February 11, 2021By PK ManagerNews

COLORADO SPRINGS — Ken Harrison is joined by powerhouse evangelist James Robison on the latest episode of “On the Edge with Ken Harrison.” Together they discuss Robison’s story of overcoming fatherlessness, the religious and political divide among Christians, and how the divide can be unified through the people’s embrace of Biblical principles, not political candidates or parties.

Highlights of Robison’s interview in the podcast include:

“I think one of the things that we all agree on is that fatherlessness is one of the things that’s driving today’s dismissal of Biblical principles. You kind of have the ultimate fatherlessness story. You were conceived in rape and you almost shot your dad, at 12 years old, with your new hunting rifle when he came back to exploit your mother. Tell us how you became the guy who’s selling out football stadiums and having 60,000 people come to watch you as a very young man. How do you go from no dad to being so useful in the kingdom of God?”

“I was living with a pastor and his wife when God called me to preach. They certainly made beautiful deposits in my life. I think somehow God had a plan for me from the time I was born. My father, God, really did adopt me and I began to get to know him. As I did, I got to know his heart and I began to share it effectively. If you’ve seen ‘God’s Not Dead’, I had that same effect in two different universities. I was a freshman speaking to the whole student body – it had never happened before. I mean, God just used somebody who fell in love with Jesus and loved the people he died for. I understood the heart of our father. God blesses everything that we do because as imperfect as I might have been and we all are, what I really wanted was his will.”

“How do Christians take leadership, when a lot of us feel like there are two sides? There’s division among us – the Christians who voted for President Joe Biden and the other side who voted for Donald Trump. As we see the current administration opening the doors for abortion, transgenderdism, and homosexuality – how do we, as Christians, behave?”

“We know that if people are defending something that is totally against freedom, against God’s word, and against principles, that we know aren’t only biblically, but historically confirmed, that the violation of these principles brings consequences that are undeniable and so often catastrophic. So, we keep pointing to the importance of this principle. You don’t make fun of somebody who says have same-sex attraction. You don’t make fun of somebody who can’t seem to control their appetite. You don’t make fun of somebody that has a battle with lust. You don’t make fun of people who are weak or defeated. You keep trying to show them, here’s what God says is best. Here’s what God chose as right. You’re never going to help a person overcome an out of control appetite or gluttony by making fun of them. You’ve got to be their best friend because they’re not necessarily evil – something has a grip on them. Everybody is distracted by evil. Nearly everyone is too often defeated by evil, but not everyone is dedicated and sold out to evil. Once you get deceived to the point that you buy the lie and begin to promote the lie, you are then changing God’s truth into a lie. You will redefine gender. You will redefine marriage. You will redefine sex. You will redefine the basic moral practices.”

What does unity in our church and, consequently, our nation look like when Biblical principles are at the forefront and not political candidates or parties?

“I don’t endorse candidates, parties or any particular person’s point of view. I endorse the principles that are confirmed historically and that are 100% in line with biblical truth. The church is the only influence on this earth that can lead all these people who really want the best… If the church will stand up suited up in Jesus, every member will come together in supernatural unity. His glory, his grace, his mercy, his power, and his principles will not fail us when they are in place, including the forgiveness that he freely offers, the restoration he offers, and the direction he offers. He will open our blind eyes and give us vision and clarity to his fruitfulness and blessings beyond measure. Then we will become the shining city on a hill that’s impossible to hide and I’m telling you, that’s the invitation he’s giving us today.”

The podcast, available in both audio and video form, can be found on AppleSpotify, and YouTube. Podcast listeners can also receive a challenging weekly devotional that will inspire them to put their faith into action.

Since entering public ministry in the 1960s, James Robison has spoken to more than 20 million people in several hundred city-wide evangelistic outreaches and has personally inspired religious, political and social leaders across five decades.

He is the founder and president of LIFE Outreach International, a Christian, faith-based organization committed to expressing God’s love in both word and deed through television ministry, evangelistic outreaches, LIFE Centers, feeding programs, water well drilling, disaster relief and other mission projects. He co-hosts the daily television program LIFE Today with his wife, Betty. He also serves as the founder and publisher of The Stream, a website launched in January 2015 that contains breaking news, commentary, inspiration and cultural analysis for people of faith.

In ‘On the Edge with Ken Harrison,’ The Real-Life Indiana Jones, Bob Cornuke, Shares His Adventures of Biblical Archaeology and The Upcoming Hollywood Film That Portrays His Life

February 4, 2021By PK ManagerNews

COLORADO SPRINGS — Ken Harrison is joined by Biblical investigator, international explorer, and bestselling author Bob Cornuke on the latest episode of “On the Edge with Ken Harrison.” Together they discuss different interpretations of Biblical word, Cornuke’s daughter’s diagnosis of Lyme’s disease, and the power behind showing an absent father mercy.

Highlights of Cornuke’s interview in the podcast include:

His daughter, Shannon, was diagnosed with Lyme’s disease after a tick bite in Louisiana.
“My daughter, Shannon, spoke at a church where we had to literally carry her up on stage and she said, ‘I wouldn’t give this up for the world’ and the whole place got quiet. She said, ‘I wouldn’t get rid of this disease for the world because people are calling me and writing to me, and now I’m a witness for them.’ There was a girl that was going to commit suicide, but Shannon talked to her and now she is seeking treatment. She’s going through the treatment with the sick and getting healed because there is hope for those that have Lyme disease. There’s a power of prayer. And there’s also the power of wisdom that God has given people to use their talents and in a great way.”
“My daughter said, ‘If I didn’t have this illness, I wouldn’t have this witness.’ We have to look at things through the right lens of God. Sometimes he puts us through these horrible things so that we can be a witness for him in a more powerful way. My daughter had the wisdom to see that. And there’s a difference between wisdom and knowledge because knowledge is in Matthew 11:25, it says, ‘Oh, father, lord of Heaven on Earth, thank you for hiding the truth for those who think themselves wise and clever and for revealing to the childlike.’ Not the childish, childish is nonsensical. Childlike is when we have total faith, like the faith that your father is going to catch you when you jump off the bunk bed. You just jump. That’s a childlike faith. We need to have a childlike faith in God that whatever happens, for example, whoever gets COVID-19, whoever gets this sickness (Lyme’s disease), or any other thing that happens to them, God has a plan and a purpose – that’s wisdom.”

Cornuke forgave his abusive and absent father, as God forgives us for our wrongdoings.

“I was talking to my dad in the hospital when the doctor said he had two to six months to live from his cancer. He turned white as a ghost, and he asked me why I look for Noah’s Ark and why I study the Bible. Growing up, every other word from my father was a swear word. I have scars on my body and my heart from him getting drunk and smacking me around. I said to him, ‘Dad, you’re either on the ark or off the ark. God tells us we’re either in or out, we’re with him or against him.’ He told me, ‘I’ve had such a bad life. I can’t. I can’t even think about asking God to do that with me. I’m so ashamed of my life.’”

“I said, ‘Dad, we’re all we’re all filthy.’ You know, Ken, if you knew what God knew about me, you wouldn’t have me here in front of this microphone and if I knew what God knew about you, I wouldn’t have come here. We’re all sinners. My dad grabbed my hand and he cried out, ‘Jesus, Jesus’ and he begged for forgiveness. I started crying because of all the scars on my body and my heart and I said, ‘I’ve got to forgive this guy, who am I that Jesus died?’ So he accepts Christ and I have this forgiveness moment with him. And my brother comes and says, ‘What’s going on?’ and I said, ‘Dad just accepted Christ.’ My dad’s face changed with all the tears. He had lines from cigarettes and drinking and they all just went away. His whole face changed. He was born again. The Bible says at that moment that you see Christ in your heart, you’re born again, and you’re on the ark. Then that next night I came home and the phone rang. It was my mother and she said ‘They just put a sheet over your father’s face, he’s dead.’ And I had the biggest smile on my face. Not because he was dead, but because he was alive, he was with Christ for all eternity.”

On differing interpretations of Biblical word:

“There are a lot of people that have differing agendas of the Bible. For instance, scholarship rests on three legs. Scholars want to be published. They want to have prestige and they want to be promoted. If you take any one of those legs, their stool will fall over. In Oregon, there are university professors there that if they say there was a flood, as the Bible tells us, they’re not going to get promoted, they’re not going to get published, and they’re not going to get prestige because 99% or 98% of all scholastic people claim to have a non-Christian fundamental viewpoint. Maybe it’s 96% or so, but it’s a high amount that are secular. So their careers are pretty much over if they start espousing that. Even Christian people teaching in Christian universities today are waffling on scripture being true from start to finish, which I believe it is. I believe the Bible is prophetically, contextually, and historically accurate. I think the Bible is God’s revelation of himself – to man God’s the author. Salvation is the truth without any mixture of errors. I believe the Bible is the supreme standard by which we live. It’s the gold standard in history, the sole source of truth. I’ve never found anything in all my archaeological searches that says the Bible counters this narrative. But, we have to remember to take the narrative with the intent of it’s authors. Over history, there have been individuals who let their agendas dictate what the Bible says.”

The podcast, available in both audio and video form, can be found on Apple, Spotify, and YouTube. Podcast listeners can also receive a challenging weekly devotional that will inspire them to put their faith into action.

Bob Cornuke is a former FBI trained police investigator and SWAT team member. He is best known as a Biblical investigator, international explorer, and bestselling author. He has participated in over seventy international expeditions searching the world for lost locations described in the Bible. Cornuke has appeared on the CBS television special Ancient Secrets of the Bible, NBC’s Dateline, MSNBC, Fox, ABC, History Channel, Good Morning America, CNN, Travel Channel, National Geographic, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not.

Cornuke serves as a special advisor to the National Council on Bible Curriculum for Public Schools, adjunct professor for Louisiana Baptist University, and sits on the Academic Advisory Board for the Koinonia Institute.

Virtual Men’s Marriage Summit Combines Expert Insights with App-Based Community to Build Strong Marriages in Stressful Times

February 4, 2021By PK ManagerNews, Promise Keepers Event

The completely free two-hour online Marriage Summit is just the beginning. Through the free Promise Keepers App, men can take daily steps to build a better marriage.

COVID-19 has had a profound impact on marriages in America—but pundits can’t agree on what that effect is. As W. Bradford Wilcox noted in “The Good and Bad News about Marriage in the Time of COVID, “The popular takes on marriage in the time of COVID-19 run all over the map. COVID-19 is straining American families. No, maybe it’s making them stronger. Divorce rates in America are soaring, says the Daily Mail, while The New York Post says, no, divorce rates are falling.”

Couples are stressed out, and while some are seeking divorce, others are experiencing, in the words of the American Family Survey, increased appreciation of their spouses and deepened commitment to their marriages. The Promise Keepers (PK) Virtual Men’s Marriage Summit is designed to provide men with the insight, encouragement, and skills they need, whether to build a stronger, more satisfying marriage, or revive a marriage that is stagnating or even in trouble.
The fourth promise of a Promise Keeper is a commitment to build strong marriages and families through love, protection, and biblical values. With this in mind, PK has created a 3-Week Marriage Challenge which uses free the Promise Keepers app to help men take practical daily steps to build the skills of a strong marriage. Any man, anywhere, at any time, can join the challenge through the app.
Ken Harrison, chairman of PK, observed:

“PK is known for assembling amazing communicators to inspire and motivate men to be godly husbands. But just as there is more to becoming a good pilot than watching an inspiring video on an F-22 Raptor, there is more to becoming a good husband than being inspired by an encouraging talk. Anything important takes will and skill. Marriage is no different.

 

“That’s why I’m excited about PK’s new 3-Week Challenge in the free Promise Keepers app. First, men are made for action, and the 3-Week Challenge gives men something to do every day to build not only knowledge, but skill through practice. Second, men are made for community, and through the app, men can encourage each other along the way.”

 

The challenge includes:

  • Daily scriptures, activities and weekly challenges including leaderboards and gamification
  • Additional resources, videos, and practical application from marriage experts
  • Small, virtual groups of fellow men with discussion-based forums
  • 21 Day Prayer Guide

Here’s what men are saying about the 3-Week Marriage Challenge:

  • “Loving Day 1 – Challenge accepted!”
  • “My wife needed me during painful times. I wasn’t there for her. Didn’t realize until today through Rick Burgess’ story how lonely and scared she must have been.”
  • “Day 3 – Wow this is a toe stepping article. So true. I need to be better about this.”
  • “This is so good. Just what I needed.”
  • “Wish I had heard this a long time ago!”
  • On Day 6: “Small things add up to big successes!”

The 3-Week Marriage Challenge was designed as a follow-up to the PK Virtual Marriage Summit, a free, fast-paced two-hour experience designed to provide information and inspiration just for men. It’s available on demand on Facebook and YouTube.

Speakers include:

  • Dr. Gary Chapman, counselor and author of The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts, which has been a New York Times bestseller for 10 years running.
