What Did The Shepherds Really Hear?

Saturday, December 20, 2014


Guest: Don Bierle, president, Faith Search International

And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”  Luke 2:10-12

The above passage is one that is well-known and oft-read.  An angel proclaiming the birth of Christ to shepherds in the fields around Bethlehem.  A baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.

Who were these shepherds and why was this “sign” given to them?  Was the sign simply a way for them to identify the Christ-child from other babies in Bethlehem?  Or was there much deeper meaning to a baby being wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manager that pointed to the real identity of Jesus?

Dr. Don Bierle, president of Faith Search International, will join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to explain what the shepherds were really hearing from the angel.

Boys Will Be … Girls? (Dec. 15-21, 2014)

Monday, December 15, 2014


Boys competing on girls’ teams?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

The Minnesota State High School League recently passed a policy that boys who “self identify” as girls will be able to play on girls’ sports teams.  The same goes for girls who feel like boys.

The Bible says, God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

The fact is, no one and nothing can change the sex God created us—not feelings, clothes, hormone treatments, or surgeries.

Those with gender identity struggles shouldn’t be encouraged further down a wrong road; rather, Christians need to reach out with God’s gracious offer to be reconciled to Him and their God-given sex.

Hear more about the transgender issue at TheChristianWorldview.org.

This weekend, we’ll discuss the meaning of Christmas.
