ABOUT THE SHOW
The Frederick Faith Debate is an open and honest forum for our local faith community leaders to share and discuss their views of the truth.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “The clash of ideas is the sound of freedom”. In that spirit, we seriously wrestle with important ideas… and are free to disagree with one another.
The hope is that through our wrestling we will develop a better understanding of the truth about the most important issues that face us in this world.
If you are a local faith community leader, or know one that would like to participate in a future roundtable, please contact Troy Skinner at the offices of WFMD. Also, if you have a topic you’d like to hear discussed or a question you'd like answered, please share that, as well.

The NIV Harmony of the Gospels
By Stanley N. Gundry, Robert L. Thomas
I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen yesterday and I love today.
Noah's Ark: Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark.
ONE: Don't miss the boat.
TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat!
THREE: Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the Ark.
FOUR: Stay fit. When you're 60 years old, someone might ask you to do something really big.
FIVE: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
SIX: Build your future on high ground.
SEVEN: For safety's sake, travel in pairs.
EIGHT: Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
NINE: When you're stressed, float awhile.
TEN: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
ELEVEN: No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting.
Please pass this on to people you want to be blessed.
Give it! Don't just get it!
Most people walk in and out of your life,
But FRIENDS leave footprints in your heart.
I HOPE THERE ISN'T ANYONE ON MY E-MAIL LIST THAT WON'T KEEP THIS GOING.
Happy 4th of July!....
Let' s get this started, NOW! And keep it out there past the Fourth!
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE
AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD,
KEEP IT LIT!! KEEP IT LIT! For all of our other military personnel, where ever they may be. Please support all of the troops defending our country.
And God Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our Freedom.
Thanks to them, and their sacrifices, we can celebrate the 4th of July. We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be eternally grateful.
I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
And then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform;
So young, so tall, so proud.
With hair cut square and eyes alert,
He'd stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil;
How many mothers' tears?
How many pilots' planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
NO, FREEDOM ISN'T FREE!
I heard the sound of Taps one night,
When everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That Taps had meant 'Amen.'
When a flag had draped a coffin
Of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea.
Of unmarked graves in
NO FREEDOM ISN'T FREE.

HI Everyone! I hope you are doing well!
I ran across this short video of Arthur Burke describing what happens to people with Disassociative Disorder. He does it using 2 girls as “props” to help explain what happens with them. However, I see the picture has a great similarity to how denial works in people who are wounded, afraid of all hurt and pain, and/or who feel their emotions very deeply. I think it would be helpful to watch.
If you adjust the video just a bit to be about how denial works in us to block us from dealing with the difficult things that happened to us in our past which in turn has messed up our thinking/emotions, the video does a good job.
It’s how denial comes to cover up the real truth about issues in our lives. It’s how our hurts from the past have caused us pain which in turn makes us fearful of dealing with things, so we end up with distortions and denial in our thinking. It becomes patterns that carry over into the present and future.
When we have a high expectation on someone, a situation, or how we think things should be, we tend to get very focused on that person/thing and see it as the only truth there is and the only reality we want and will accept. It becomes a “need” or a “must have”. Anything less than that illusion/perfect thing we are striving for is ignored and/or pushed away through denial even though the fruit of circumstances and life are telling us something very different.
We also tend to overly focus on this good thing to the point of almost idolatry, because we want it so bad and want so desperately to “block out the bad” - what we see as “bad emotions” or as hurt and pain. Denial comes along and blocks us from the real truth of the matter keeping us in our illusions, blocking the negative emotions that need tending to, and the truth of what God is trying to say to us to set us free.
I hope this helps some of you get a picture of how denial and even deception can work against you, so much so that you miss the truth and what God is saying to you over and over again – hence the cycles we get into. Click on the link below.
