The Boundless Show
Compassion Without Compromise: Episode 676
January 14, 2021
Roundtable: Care, But Don’t Cave Your friend doesn’t share the same values as you. You want to be nice, but when he or she does something you don’t agree with, how should you respond? Should you tell them exactly what you think of their bad behavior? Brush it off? Wait and see? Our guests discuss what it looks like to be respectful toward people we disagree with, and how to love others without stonewalling, enabling, or compromising your faith. Culture: The Long Game of Sharing the Gospel Let’s face it: Sharing your faith with others is hard. We all know someone we’d love to see come to Christ, but the question remains: How do I talk with him or her about spiritual things? Randy Newman is a firm believer that evangelism looks more like a gradual process than just one conversation. Before becoming a Christian in college, he spent years interacting with believers and learning from them. Whether you find sharing the gospel scary or not, this conversation will encourage you. Inbox: Dating Outside Your Type Is dating someone who’s not your type a valuable exercise or a waste of time? Is there a way to broaden who you find attractive? Lisa Anderson weighs in.

About The Boundless Show
We know that life is a journey.
The young adult years are full of possibilities and choices that shape who we will become — it’s a season of adulthood that feels boundless. As a ministry of Focus on the Family, the Boundless community exists to help you navigate the path with biblical wisdom and intention.
We challenge you to maximize these years — to embrace new responsibilities, own your faith, date with purpose, prepare for marriage and, above all, honor God in everything you do.
Let’s find your place and focus your future.
About Lisa Anderson
Lisa Anderson is the director of Boundless and young adults at Focus on the Family, and hosts The Boundless Show podcast. She loves connecting with single young adults and strategizing how to better equip them for life, relationships and a faith that goes the distance; she does not love managing budgets or signing contracts, but realizes that’s part of her job, too. Lisa can often be heard at conferences and on radio and TV, getting worked up about dating, relationships, faith and hip-hop. She grew up in San Jose, California, is a graduate of Trinity International University in Chicago, and spent a good chunk of her life in media relations before joining Boundless. She runs to counterbalance her love of pastries and chicken tikka masala, and often quotes her mom, who’s known to say outrageous things.
