Welcome to Gospel Rant. I am Dr. Bill Senyard. This is the eighth episode of my new series Power2Change. P2C8. Remember the classic SNL sketch about Blue Oyster Cult's “Don’t Fear The Reaper” with Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell? The punch line was about cowbells. Brother, sister, we need more cowbells. We are going to look at the spiritual equivalent of more cowbells, Joy. Don’t settle for less. I have faith in you that you can do it. Let’s have some fun. It is critical.

Smarter Pro-Lifers
February 14, 2024 - 27 min
Dr. Bill Senyard here with Gospel App Ministries, Good Enough Parent, and the Gospel Rant Podcast. Look, here’s the thing. I think that we pro-life Christians can do a much better job in this arena. In fact, I wonder if we are shooting ourselves in the foot more that we want to admit. Many years ago, the comedian George Carlin lambasted pro-lifers for our inconsistencies—and poor messaging. To a large degree, I think he was right. Things have not changed much. We can do better, be encouraged. This show is to throw my two cents into the mix. This was a special one-off show. I hope that you are listening to and enjoying my current series on my youTube channel (DrBillSenyard) and the Gospel Rant podcast called Power2Change, about how the power of the gospel can actually begin to truly defeat addictions, whether it is to drugs, porn, alcohol, sex, social media, or anything else. If this has benefitted you, please pass this on. Support The Show: https://www.gospelrant.com/ Discover more Christian podcasts at lifeaudio.com and inquire about advertising opportunities at lifeaudio.com/contact-us.

100,000 Churches Closing???
February 6, 2024 - 29 min
SPECIAL and IMPORTANT GOSPEL RANT! Crazy right? Dr. Bill Senyard here with Gospel App Ministries, Good Enough Parent and the Gospel Rant Podcast. 40 million people have stopped going to church in the last 30 years.  In 2019, the year before COVID, far more protestant churches closed than opened in the US. The average congregation size is now less than half what it was in 2000. 1/3 of churchgoers are 65 or older. Summary, far fewer churches, even so, each still is suffering decreasing attendance, and is notably greying.  Per Christianity Today, church closures are predicted to snowball. By 2025, 100,000 North American churches could close their doors.  Someone called it the Great Dechurching. This is happening at the very same time that so many Americans are feeling increasingly anxious and lonely. New survey shows that one in three said they feel lonely at least once a week. Worse, one in 10 Americans say they feel lonely every day. But, they are not thinking that churches are the answer. Sad. What’s up?Support The Show: https://www.gospelrant.com/ Discover more Christian podcasts at lifeaudio.com and inquire about advertising opportunities at lifeaudio.com/contact-us.
