Kids and Secular Media, When to Leave Your Church, and Signing Troubled Football Players

Admit it, your Week needs a boost. Well the Happy Rant is here to help. But you, the listeners, have helped us too. We recently passed 100,000 downloads. That is nuts for three guys scattered around the country who record vis dial-up internet and Skype, so thank you! Without further ado, here is what we ranted about this week.

  • Should parents let their kids watch Rated R Movies and listen to secular music? If so when and how much?
  • What are thing aspects of church that are worth leaving over? How should we respond if there’s something at our church we don’t like?
  •  Should we hate football teams that sign players with checkered pasts, especially domestic violence?

This month we have TWO sponsors. Crossway Books is back as a sponsor featuring Behold The King of Glory by Russ Ramsey, a contributor to The Blazing Center. It’s a fantastic look at the work and life of Christ leading up to Easter. It is great as a Lent devotional but is a wonderful resource any time for someone who wants a fresh, eye-opening look at Jesus’ ministry, life, mission, and the passion week. Visit Crossway.org/Behold to get 40% off and free shipping 

We’d also like to thank  Mere Church for sponsoring this podcast. Mere Church provides, awesome, affordable church websites designed by a team of gifted folks who have put together sites from leading international ministries and businesses but have a heart for the local church. They offer 24/7 phone and email support so you can focus on other pressing areas of ministry. Visit MereChurch.com/Rant for details.
