This week, let’s do something just a little bit different. For those of you who have been hanging out with the “Are You Real” podcast since the beginning, you might be familiar with a man by the name of Any Dietz. Andy first appeared on Episode 7, and he was able to share his heart for the nations and the way God has called him to live outside of his comfort zone. Andy’s passion for international missions is far reaching. He’s been to 43 different countries, and that has opened his eyes to God’s blessing for us here in the States.

But God’s purpose for Andy is bigger than just his heart for missions. Last time we talked, I promised that we would get some more details about a crazy situation that happened one night in Budapest. Andy survived a kidnapping, but the grace of God. It is an incredible story of survival, strength, and faith that he writes about in his book Kidnapped in Budapest. I can’t wait for you to hear more.

  • Experiencing gratitude from travels around the world.
  • How different cultures bring about new perspectives.
  • Spiritual impact of salvation through a kid to the leader of a nation!
  • Andy walks us through the story of his abduction.
  • Getting tangled with the Mafia.
  • The support on the home front in prayer and provision.
  • Psalm 121:7
  • Kidnapping and chaos are both used to bring people closer to God.
  • Andy’s call to find your specific purpose.

  • Religion’s LIE
  • Paul’s biggest strength? “My relationships. I’m surrounded by people who love me but aren’t impressed. I’ve learned to stay inside the grace of today, and not be a future-tripper.”
  • Paul’s biggest weakness within his strength? “I’m very much a mental processor and not a verbal one. That makes it hard sometimes to stay present and engaged with someone.”
  • What is God currently stirring in your life? “I’m excited about the young generations coming up without the religious allegiances and affiliations that we were in bondage to. I think we’re on the cusp of some pretty fantastic movements and times.”
  • Paul’s advice to his younger self? “I would go to myself at 6 years old, put an arm around him and say, ‘You’re never alone and you will never be alone. Learn to tell all your secrets’.”

Have you ever wondered how Christians cope in the fast world and bright lights of Hollywood? To find out, listen in to today's show with Cameron Arnett, who has acted in many well-known TV shows, like ABC's China Beach and Tyler Perry's Meet The Browns. On today's show, Cameron relates how, while climbing the ladder to success in film and TV in California he realized that the Lord wanted him to get out of the system. He dropped everything over the course of the next fourteen or fifteen years, got out of Hollywood and the business, started two churches and then went bankrupt. Later, about four or five years ago, he started to resume his career in Atlanta, where film and Christian media was exploding at the time. He has now done eight or nine films on the Christian side and is scheduled to do a whole lot more. Listen in and find out how the Lord has set about replenishing and restoring things in Cameron's life, above and beyond all that he could ask for.

 

Cameron Arnett is the CEO of Camy Arnett Production Studios (CAPS), a television, film, and entertainment company. He's also CEO of BYOBB Media/Records, an independent film and television portal and record label, as well as being the producer and director of a number of upcoming shows. He has many past films to his credit, including the five Dove Award winning Stand Your Ground. His past television credits include NBC's Miami Vice, Fox's Star Trek- The Next Generation and many more. He is a regular host on WATC TV57 Atlanta Live Show and, most importantly, the co-host of the nationally syndicated The Christian View.
