Unfiltered #24: DGOC - Prophecy? Really???
As bizarre as it may seem, against staggering odds, more than 2000 of 2500 Bible prophecies of all kinds have been fulfilled. Surely you can't be serious! Yes, I am, and don't call me Shirley ;-) Luke 21:11...There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences. And there will be terrors and great signs from heaven.

Unfiltered Episode 20: DGOC - Repent?
Don’t let the religious connotations prevent you from hearing this. Repentance is really just about feeling the pain of our mistakes and turning it around. Globally and close to home, I’d say we’re feeling some pain! Let's heed the warning shot--spiritually and in our day-to-day.
Unfiltered #19: DGOC - Hell & Evil
Hellfire and damnation? Devil and demons? I was skeptical, too. But the real-life evidence seems to align with what the Bible says on the subject.
