How do you live an authentic life while keeping a secret? This is Carol Anderson's struggle throughout her award-winning debut memoir.
Carol grew up in an era when being gay was against the law in most states, and in opposition to cultural and religious mores throughout society. Fearing rejection, she hid the truth from her loving Christian parents and from others significant in her life. The cost was a painful emotional distance that could not be bridged for years. Thanks to the feminist movement, she found the freedom to love whomever she chooses and the courage to come out to her mother after her father's death. The news was received with both love and reservation, and, ultimately, acceptance. Carol's deep respect for her parents, and theirs for her, shines through her own confusion and struggle to be true to herself.
This memoir allows people to experience the complex, invisible dynamics that arise for those forced to cover up a part of themselves to survive. It also provides life lessons for anyone hiding a core and frightening truth about themselves. Candid and poignant, You Can't Buy Love Like That celebrates the hard-won rewards of finding one's courageous heart and achieving self-acceptance….

Currently playing: Daniel D. Corner speaking about “The Believer’s Conditional Security”
This fully-documented, 801-page volume will take the reader from the origin of eternal security or once saved, always saved (OSAS) to the present time, as the contemporary OSAS teachers of our day are quoted hundreds of times and their teachings are examined under the light of God’s truth. If you are like many, among other things, you will be shocked to learn that the teaching of OSAS is sometimes equated to grace and the gospel! Furthermore, the chapters exposing Calvin’s dark side and unmasking the Synod of Dort (1618-1619), will give a factual, historical account that seems to be little known in our day. But most importantly, hundreds of Scriptures are cited in both offensive and defensive ways that will substantiate The Believer’s Conditional Security.

Currently playing: Jocolby Phillips speaking about “Rapture Advent of The Last Days”
Christopher, the leader of an elite U.S. special operations unit undertakes one of the most important missions of his military career, attempting to rescue a French journalist kidnapped by ISIS, while distracted with trusting God over himself. He is confused and angry with God and ineffective in his leadership, however, Jackson, the team-deputy and long-time mentor and friend provides much-needed stability for Christopher and the team.
The operation reinforces in Christopher that God was not to be trusted when needed most and Jackson leaves the mission searching for God and meaning to his life, as the men prepare to return to Washington D.C for debriefing. As Christopher and his team redeploy from the rescue mission back to Washington D.C., they find themselves out of work as the National Security Advisor deactivates the Christopher-led unit pending an investigation into the failed journalist rescue.
Things go from bad to worse for Christopher and Jackson as the two disgraced soldiers are thrust, unbeknownst to them, into the midst of the Rapture. They attempt to keep the chaos of a post-rapture world at bay, in a series of globetrotting missions, from rural Virginia to Brazil, ancient Babylon to remote Alaska. The actions of the president and others leave the world on the brink of World War. Christopher continues throughout each mission to trust himself above God. He refuses to listen to the Holy Spirit-inspired advice that those around him provide and the question lingers will he reconcile and surrender his pain to God.
