Main Show Topic: Are We Making Disciples?
Listen Now (Archive/Podcast):
On this edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE, we carry on with our discipleship series. Are We Making Disciples? How has what we have learned about Christianity and discipleship kept us from making more disciples? How might we get back to Christ now that we have traveled apart from His ways? How do we depart from the allure of this world and place our every step, thought, idea, and decision upon Christ?
It is our prayer that you be Spirit-filled and blessed by what you will discover on this unique edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE.
During these two hours, we will learn how God’s perfect love and faithfulness can help us walk hand-in-hand with God—leading us through this life into a life of total victory, in all things, through His anointing, discernment, and great comfort.
Special Guest: Matt Fore, Christian Humorist, Speaker, Entertainer, and Nut
We round out our program with features including Joyce Meyer’s “Everyday Moments”, Focus on the family’s Plugged-In Movie Review and Focus on the Family Minute, Beth Moore’s “A Quick Word”, Luis Palau’s “Reaching Your World”, and Dave Ramsey’s “Daily Money Makeover.”
On this edition of Alive in Christ, Christian Discipleship Ministries’ Founder, Tony Marino and Lynn Kennedy explore life’s guidelines verses His “God-lines”, and will it be “your way”, or “Yahweh?” We invite you to join us.
On this episode we will learn to, “let go and let God.”

Alive in Christ Radio LIVE || In-Studio Guest: Matt Fore
Matt Fore was born at an early age on October 26, 1958 in the small mountain village of Morristown Tennessee or it may have been somewhere up north. Anyway, for a while he was all pinkish and could barely see or speak. His hands were so small that he had to use bridge size playing cards to do a one handed cut and Hofzinger spread control because the standard blue backed Tally Ho poker cards were too big. He spent what seemed like months just lying around and drinking. Fifty some odd years later he is a professional magician, sleight of hand artist and entertainer with over twenty five years of experience having performed, in that time, for literally dozens of people.
Matt’s interest in trickery began when he was still very short. He had a very keen and alert brain and a very keen and alert brain as well as a brain that very alert and keen. Naturally he wanted to be a nuclear physicist but his parents encouraged him to be a sleight of hand artist. AGo where the money is@ they would say and they were right as today he earns, let=s just say, four figures. There is no doubt that he will someday be a world famous magician so if you book him now you will be able to say that you knew Matt Fore when he was absolutely nobody.
Matt currently lives in East Tennessee and spends much of his time on the road as the featured entertainer for many corporate functions, churchwide events, sports evangelism celebrations, banquets and conventions. He has performed throughout the Carribean on Carnival Cruise Lines and was an opening act for Crystal Gayle. He has appeared in a music video with Taylor Swift and has performed on several national TV Shows including the Crook & Chase show on TNN, Fox Sports and The Dennis Swanburg Show. He has also performed numerous times at the famed Magic Castle in Hollywood California.
But the list doesn’t stop there. Matt has also performed at Carnegie Hollister’s birthday party, The Grand Ole Opportunity House and Johnny Carson Smith’s Wholesale Pork and Packaging. He has also attended concerts by some very famous groups including Three Dog Night and The Marshall Tucker Band and has watched many famous television programs. He wears a size 11 shoe. Sometimes 10 1/2 depending on the brand because some brands are too narrow causing unnecessary discomfort and unexplainable facial expressions at the wrong time. Like when someone is telling a joke.

Alive in Christ Radio LIVE || Christian Book of the Week:
Author: James Robison and Jay W. Richards
Title: Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It’s Too Late
Description: Many books have been written on conservative politics. Many more have been written calling Christians to holiness and spiritual revival. Few, however, have managed to combine a clear explanation of the conservative political perspective with its corresponding personal and spiritual virtue.
In INDIVISIBLE, James Robison, the founder and president of LIFE Outreach International, partners with Jay Richards, Ph.D., a writer who has appeared in both the New York Times and The Washington Post. Together, they tackle tough, controversial political issues facing conservative Christians today, including abortion, stem cell research, education, economics, health care, the environment, judicial activism, marriage, and others. Written to appeal to a broad spectrum of believers, INDIVISIBLE not only argues political questions from a Scriptural standpoint, it also provides simple arguments that Christians can use to support their beliefs in public settings.
Most significantly, Robison and Richards recognize that the point of origin for spiritual and moral transformation is the individual. “We are convinced by historical precedent that long term cultural change requires not merely sound thinking and public good works but rather, God’s spiritual and moral transformation of us as individuals, which will then transform our churches, our communities, our culture, and ultimately our politics.”
James Robison is the founder and president of LIFE Outreach International, a worldwide Christian relief organization. He is also the host of LIFE Today, a daily syndicated television program that reaches 300 million homes in the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Australia. He is the author of many books, including The Absolutes, True Prosperity, and Living in Love, and has spoken to millions of people through evangelistic crusades since entering public ministry in 1962.
Jay W. Richards, Ph.D., is a Senior Fellow at the Discovery Institute and the author of many books, including the award-winning Money, Greed, and God and The Privileged Planet. He is the executive director of the documentaries The Call of the Entrepreneur and The Birth of Freedom. He has been featured in the New York Times and the Washington Post and has appeared on Larry King Live. He has also lectured on economic myths to members of the U.S. Congress.
