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 – October 14, 2023 Eric Metaxas and author Joel Rosenberg, who is in Jerusalem, detail the barbarism and raw calculated evil of Hamas in the attack that happened in Israel over the weekend. They examined the possible endgame of Hamas and Iran, highlighting the need for Israel to protect itself. Albert Mohler points out the unique position of Israel as a democratic, constitutional government in the Middle East and underscores the ongoing challenges it faces due to opposition to its existence as a Jewish state, with the recent attack being a manifestation of this opposition. Kevin McCullough talks with Eliad Levy, an Israeli citizen, about his niece, Ronnie, serving in the military in Gaza, with the last contact being on Saturday amid the ongoing attacks. Israel is facing threats from multiple fronts, including Hezbollah in Lebanon and Iranian proxies on the northern border. Eliad emphasizes the need for the international community to act, both to secure the release of hostages taken by Hamas and to address growing threats. Bob Burney asserts that the biblical responsibility to execute vengeance is assigned to civil government, not individuals. He cites Romans 13 to argue that Israel, in the face of evil attacks from groups like Hamas, has the right to defend itself and must send a clear message to deter further attacks, even though it may result in tragic consequences for innocent lives.
