In our fast-changing world, it can be difficult to sort through the issues of the day. From family to faith to the latest in the public square, it’s hard to stay up on what’s happening, much less interpret the news in a way that honors our Christian faith. That’s what Salem’s Christian hosts do for our listeners across the country every day—and “The Christian Outlook” draws from the best of their material to bring you an hour-long program you won’t want to miss.

The Christian Outlook – September 30, 2023 Greg Seltz, in for Don Kroah, talks with Daniel Huerta to underscore the importance of two-parent families as a fundamental right for children. They highlight the benefits of stability, emotional regulation, and selflessness in such families, and call for policies and teaching the next generation to prioritize healthy relationships. Albert Mohler discusses Nicholas Kristof's article, which raises concerns about child poverty and the breakdown of two-parent families. Kristof cites Melissa Kearney's research, emphasizing the importance of acknowledging the benefits of two-parent households for children's well-being.  Scott Furrow and Jennifer Kennedy discuss Governor Newsom's veto of AB 957, a bill that aimed to force judges in family court to take custody away from parents who did not embrace the idea that a child can change gender.  Georgene Rice talks with Neil Shenvi and Pat Sawyer, who wrote “Critical Dilemma—the Rise of Critical Theories and the Implications for Church and Society.” They discuss the core ideas of the woke movement, which include the social binary, hegemonic power, lived experience, and the pursuit of social justice. They also highlight the elusive nature of redemption within this poisonous ideology, contrasting it with the eternal redemption offered by Christ alone.
