    It surprises me that someone would call to defend our president. The fact that he is being called the abortion president and the fact the he refuses to say under god. I don’t understand how a Christian’s can support him, it just blows my mind. He has been so hostile against the state of Israel and is forcing his abortion mandate down the throats of religious organizations. I know New Life Live does not endorse politics, and I am glad they don’t. This is just my opinion.

      You must not listen often because most of the host share their positions. Maybe it’s too subtle for you to comprehend, but they absolutely share their positions. Doesn’t the bible instruct us to give respect to title even if we don’t agree. I believe that is what the caller is questioning. When I don’t agree with them I don’t fail to respect them. I am very close to discontinuing even listening to this program.

        I agree Sarah. I really love this program. I love the station in fact, but I hate when they (those on this station, altogether) talk politics. God, to me, gets thrown out the window for self-righteousness. There are some programs on this station I don’t listen to because of the disrespect towards the president. But I really like this program in particular. Conflicted? Yes.

    While they have improved on some areas of their self-righteousness, I withdrew my financial support some time ago, although I continued my prayer support. If the Lord should instruct me to resume my financial support I will be obedient to his will.

      Sarah – The disrespect toward Lisa along with your reply to Christina makes you look like the self-righteous one… Praise the Lord for this ministry! Sometimes comments are made, but is it really necessary to take personal offense to them? And if you must, ask them directly what their opinions are instead of judging where they stand on the issue based on a couple comments or just quietly find another program to pay attention to. There is no such thing as a perfect ministry – they are ALL run by humans and you will not always agree with them.

      To Steve, Jill and Mylan – I love you! Stay real… I enjoy the personal touch that each of your personalities bring to the show and look forward to your candid remarks in the future!

        Amen to that Chrissy!
        You spoke your mind with such class and tact.
