For the first time in history, the perpetrator of a mass school shooting is getting sympathy. A deranged woman murdered three children and three adults at a Nashville Christian school…but she was transgender, so LGBTQ advocates are defending her. Some are even blaming the victims!

On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we’ll discuss what the senseless violence in Nashville tells us about our culture.

Jim Olson was the founding board chair for 40 Days for Life. He's also a retired CIA spy. And he's back for part two of our special interview with him on The 40 Days for Life Podcast. 

In this episode, Jim shares:

  • His memories of the day the Supreme Court handed down the Roe v. Wade decision--and the heartbreak of fighting evil in the Soviet Union as his own country sanctioned the evil of killing unborn children;
  • How his faith sustained him as he departed for missions he might not return from;
  • The thrill of stealing Russian secrets in the heart of the Soviet Union;
  • The importance of staying focused and not giving into cynicism amidst setbacks and challenges.

Jim Olson was the founding board chair for 40 Days for Life. He's also a retired CIA spy. And he sat down with us for a special two-part series of The 40 Days for Life Podcast. 

In this episode, Jim shares wild stories you won't hear anywhere else as well as expert insights on America's past, present and future, including:

  • His heartbreak upon learning of a close colleague who became the most notorious double agent of the Cold War;
  • The difficult conversation he had with his oldest son after Iranian terrorists tracked down--and threatened to kill--his family;
  • His fears for the future of America and why the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan has weakened the U.S. worldwide;
  • The intense moral dilemmas that come with spying.

Jim will be back again next week to discuss 40 Days for Life, his faith journey, and why abortion is such a critical issue globally.

It’s Holy Week—the week that changed the world. The redeeming passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ were all set into motion when Judas agreed to betray our Lord.

Betrayal is a particularly cold sin—because it’s a sin against loyalty and trust. There’s a reason that we still use the name “Benedict Arnold” to describe a traitor, nearly 250 years after the American Revolution. There’s a reason Dante reserved the 9th—and ultimate—circle of hell for traitors. And 2,000 years later, we still look with scorn toward Judas Iscariot for betraying his (and our) Creator and Redeemer.

Abortion is another form of betrayal. On this episode of The 40 Days for Life Podcast, we’ll look at:

  • The relationships betrayed by abortion
  • How Judas’ motives in betraying the Lord line up with the motives of the abortion industry
  • Why betrayal may be a grave sin…but it isn’t the last word
