Episode 51: Celebrate True Freedom This Fourth of July

June 30, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

As we’re getting ready to celebrate our nation’s 245th birthday, there are some Americans hate our country and reject the precious freedoms we enjoy. They think they’ll find a better freedom in socialism, Marxism or some other -ism that’s failed in other countries. They ignore how America has led the fight for freedom both here and around the world. The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. It reminds me of the importance of our nation’s freedoms and an even greater freedom—the one Jesus offers us from sin. This is the last episode of Fearless until August. (I'm taking a little hiatus for the summer) My family and I are spending July in Alaska serving with Samaritan’s Purse and its ministry to military couples called Operation Heal Our Patriots. I hope you have a wonderful summer!

Episode 50: Legacy Series—Facing Fear With an Eternal Perspective

June 8, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

It’s easy to get anxious or fearful about what’s going on in culture—not only for ourselves but for our children. This happened to me recently, and then I listened to a few of my grandfather, Billy Graham’s, messages. Daddy Bill’s sermons reminded me of the importance of having a heavenly mindset, especially when it seems chaos is everywhere. So, I decided to do another installment of my Legacy series, in which I share some of the Christian life lessons I learned from my grandfather. And from my grandmother, Ruth Graham, too. This is the 50th episode and two year anniversary of Fearless, so I’ll also talk about how Fearless came about—or, actually, how it almost didn’t.

Episode 49: Progressive Christianity: Is It ‘Another Gospel?’

May 25, 2021

It’s easy to think progressive Christianity is characterized by a focus on social issues and emphasizing God’s love and mercy. But it’s more dangerous than that. As my guest, Alisa Childers, discovered, leaders of progressive Christianity want to deconstruct the historical Christian faith--and take others with them. On this episode, we discuss the core differences between historic and progressive Christianity—and how to recognize progressive Christianity. Alisa was a member of the Christian band ZOEgirl. After the band broke up so the members could raise their families, Alisa joined a Bible study to grow deeper in her faith. Instead, she discovered the pastor leading the group was encouraging its members to abandon Biblical truths. The experience led her to dig deep into the truth of historic Christianity and write a book about progressive Christianity titled “Another Gospel?” Going Farther: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/ “Another Gospel” by Alisa Childers -- https://www.alisachilders.com/anothergospel.html The Alisa Childer’s Podcast - https://www.alisachilders.com/podcast.html Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/ Alisa Childers -- https://www.alisachilders.com/ Social Media: Cissie Graham Lynch Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie Graham Lynch Instagram -- https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ Cissie Graham Lynch Twitter -- https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/ Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Episode 48: Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice: Students Work to End Abortion

May 11, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch and Kristan Hawkins

College campuses are being overwhelmed by liberalism and anti-God rhetoric, but there is a wave of bold and compassionate students taking a fearless stand for life. I’m inspired by the work Kristan Hawkins is doing through her pro-life organization, Students for Life. They’re working to end abortion and change culture. However, with a liberal pro-choice president in the White House, changing political policy is going to be even harder. Kristan says that 79% of Planned Parenthood clinics are within five miles of a college campus and that 52% of abortion-seeking women are under the age of 25. But along with the disturbing facts about abortion and Planned Parenthood, she also shares encouraging stories and helpful tactics. And Kristan explains why if we want to end abortion we have to start with young people.

Episode 47: Israel: Understanding Why It Matters with Skip Heitzig

April 27, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch and Skip Heitzig

Israel isn’t much bigger than New Jersey and it’s home to only about nine million people, but it’s one of the most important--and criticized—countries in the world. American evangelical Christians have been one of Israel’s closest allies for decades, but do you know why? Do you know the Biblical significance of Israel today? Skip Heitzig’s understanding of this Jewish nation runs deep and he joined me on this episode to explain what you need to know about historic and modern Israel. Skip has lived in Israel and visited it 41 times. He’s also the senior pastor of Calvary Church of Albuquerque and a good friend of my family.

Episode 46: Your Questions—My Answers

April 13, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

Recently many of you have sent me questions through social media, and I’m answering them on this episode of Fearless. They cover a wide range of topics, from our kids’ education, to Bible studies, engaging with people on politics, and even the royal family. Some of the questions are fun and some are tough, but they’re all thought provoking and important. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed answering them.

Episode 45: Easter and the Good News of Jesus – with Will Graham

March 30, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch and Will Graham

Every year we celebrate Easter but it’s easy to forget why it’s so significant. Especially in a world that is constantly trying to distract you from the holiness of God, the price Jesus paid for us on the cross and the power of the resurrection. In this episode, I sat down with my brother Will Graham. We talked about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and how these offer us the ultimate hope and peace. Scripture Referenced: John 14:27 2 Corinthians 5:7 Psalm 107 Matthew 27:11-26 John 18:28-40 Luke 23:26-49 Isaiah 53:10 Philippians 1:21 Genesis 3 Going Farther: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/ Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Will Graham Live-Good Friday Service -- www.willgrahamlive.com Will Graham Easter Devotional Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove -- https://thecove.org/ Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/ https://cissiegrahamlynch.com/episode-45-easter-and-the-good-news-of-jesus-with-will-graham/ Facebook: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/ Will Graham Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/WillGraham4 Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/ https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch/posts/287224916109121 https://www.instagram.com/p/CNCrVOfl-3y/ https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch/status/1376875312089341952

Episode 44: A Parent’s Worst Nightmare—A Conversation with a Mom Who Lived It

March 16, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch and Kathy Yokeley

My friend Kathy Yokeley was stunned when her daughter, Natalie, was diagnosed with inoperable spinal cord cancer at the age of twelve. Nine months later, Natalie was gone. Kathy and her family have struggled through intense grief, but they’ve also learned about God’s infinite faithfulness. In this episode, Kathy and I sit down to talk about her experience navigating a parent’s worst nightmare and how Natalie’s life left a lasting impact on the world. Kathy recently released a book documenting her emotional story. Not My Plans: When God Allows a Parent's Worst Fear to Come True is now available on Amazon.

Episode 43: Social Justice, Critical Race Theory--and Biblical Truth

March 2, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch, Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker

There’s a lot of confusion in churches and among Christians regarding many issues. The enemy can use confusion to divide, but God gives us wisdom and understanding through His Word. Two of the most troubling issues I see needing to be addressed within the Church are social justice and Critical Race Theory. I’ve asked Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker of the “Just Thinking” podcast to help us look at these concepts from a Biblical perspective. Scripture: Jeremiah 4 and 6 Acts 17 Genesis 1, 3, 5 and 6 2 Timothy 3 1 Peter 3 Luke 7 and 19 Matthew 5 1 John 5 2 Peter 3 Ephesians 1 Revelation 4 and 7 2 Kings 3 Ecclesiastes 7 Romans 1, 3, 5 and 8 Colossians 1 and 2 Going Farther: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/ Websites: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – https://billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/ Just Thinking with Darrell Harrison and Virgil Walker -- https://justthinking.me/ Social Media: Cissie’s Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch Cissie’s Instagram – @cissiegrahamlynch Cissie's Twitter -- @CissieGLynch Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook --https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/ Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Episode 42: When Equality Isn’t Equality for All

February 25, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

For many years people have turned a blind eye and now Christians will be facing the severe consequences. There’s a bill making its way through Congress that would grant federal protection to people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity. But does non-discrimination for some step on the rights of those outside of this specific group? In this episode I look at the far reaching and dangerous implications of the Equality Act and what you can do to try to stop it.

Episode 41: Reclaiming Truth--A Conversation with Skillet’s John Cooper

February 12, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch and John Cooper

Not only has culture lost sight of what truth is, many churches and pastors have even abandoned Biblical truth. John Cooper is the front man for the multi-platinum band Skillet, author of “Awake and Alive to Truth,” and host of the podcast, “Cooper Stuff.” Biblical truth and a commitment to the Gospel is the common thread in everything John does. In this episode John and I talk about not seeking the approval of the world and the importance of knowing the word of God.

Episode 40: Unity With the World – Is it Possible?

January 25, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

Show Notes: On this episode of Fearless, I’m talking about the word, “unity.” It’s been the subject of speeches and headlines, but—at a time when it feels like our country has never been more divided—is unity even possible? In today’s culture, “unity” has been tossed around so much that it’s lost its meaning. It’s worth considering what the word “unity” means, and how we can find it. True unity can only be found in Jesus Christ. The world has rejected Jesus, and therefore rejected unity. However, Jesus calls the Church to be an example of unity. Now, more than ever, the Church can show the world the truth of Jesus Christ through its unity.

Episode 39: United We Stand for Life with special guest Jeanne Mancini.

January 15, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch and Jeanne Mancini

UPDATE: March For Life organizers have decided to make the 2021 March a virtual event. The decision was announced on the afternoon of January 15, after this episode of Fearless was recorded and posted. Make plans to join from the VIRTUAL March for Life from your home, your office, or wherever you are on January 29, 2021. The pro-life issue isn’t reserved for certain people — it is a fight that concerns us all and one we can all take part in. My heart was convicted of this last year after attending the March for Life for the first time. It’s a day which changed my life. It’s easy to be in the fight when the current administration is also fighting for life, but there are people and organizations that have been on the front lines even when it’s been hard. One of those people is Jeanne Mancini, the president of March for Life and a fierce pro-life advocate. In this episode of Fearless I had the privilege of speaking with Jeanne about the organization March for Life, and how it’s actively fighting for the rights of the unborn. I hope you are encouraged to join the fight by attending the virtual March for Life event on January 29, 2021. marchforlife.com Scripture Referenced: 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 Going Farther: Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/ Jeanne’s Article in The National Review -- https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/12/becerra-would-be-a-radical-pro-abortion-warrior-at-hhs/?itm_source=parsely-api Websites: March For Life website -- https://marchforlife.org/ Fearless Website – https://cissiegrahamlynch.com/ Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – www.billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/ Connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter: https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/BillyGrahamEvangelisticAssociation/ Billy Graham Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/ReverendBillyGraham/ Billy Graham Radio Facebook -- https://www.facebook.com/billygrahamradio/

Episode 38: Facing 2021 With Confidence and Hope

January 7, 2021 • Cissie Graham Lynch

The demonstrations in Washington, D.C. on January 6th were a stark reminder that 2021 may not provide the relief from 2020 many of us were hoping for. But they’re also a reminder of the importance of placing our faith in God this new year. In this first episode of 2021 I want to encourage you to be prepared for whatever 2021 holds. We cannot grow weary. As Daniel 11:32 tells us, those who know their God will be able to stand in strength and take action.

Episode 37: Do Not Be Afraid – A Christmas Message

December 21, 2020 • Cissie Graham Lynch

Show Notes Christmas is just a few days away. One tradition that I started last year with my family is a photo album – with real printed photos – of the past year. As I was looking back at the photos from 2020, I felt grateful for more time spent with my family. I know not many people will look back at 2020 the same way. But I am reminded this Christmas week, that if we know God’s Word and have confidence in it, we can be assured that the Lord is with us. Mary’s story tells us this exact same message: Nothing is impossible with God.
