Skillet’s John Cooper: ‘It’s Amazing How Much Lies Can Sound Like Truth’
John Cooper knows what it feels like to feel hurt, broken and angry. He knows what it feels like to question God and cry out for help. And because he knows Jesus, John has the answer to life’s problems. He’s committed to sharing that truth with people around the world through rock music. John is the lead singer of the band Skillet and he joins us on this episode of GPS: God. People. Stories. You’ll hear John talk about the tragedy of losing his mom to cancer as a teenager, seriously doubting God in college and dealing with criticism from both the Christian and secular music industries. But you’ll also hear him discuss why his story is ultimately filled with hope and restoration. We previously had John’s wife, Korey Cooper, on the podcast. She’s a guitarist in the band.

No More 4% Rule?
To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/1085/29 For 25 years, the 4% rule was carved in stone as the rule that retirement investors rested their golden years on. However, that rule is no more. Its always upsetting when something you view as the truth turns out to have flaws. Today, host Rob West and Steve Moore talk about the 4% rule and other retirement planning. The 4% rule is the idea made by Bill Bengen that you have to adjust your budget so that you never withdraw more than 4% a year from your investments. This is supposed to guarantee that your retirement savings will last at least as long as you do. Bengen now says the average safe withdrawal rate is around 7% and could be as high as 13%, but we arent recommending that anyone withdraw that much. The new rule, according to Bengen, is 5%. Bengen says he uses the 5% figure for his own retirement planning. 5% isnt a huge change percentage wise from 4%, but the money difference could be significant. Here are a couple of questions we answered from our callers on todays program: What is your opinion on permanent life insurance as a tax shelter for later? I have around $80,000, half of which is in a Roth and the other half is inherited. I went to an advisor and they told me I could put more money into the Roth, but a different advisor said the opposite. What do you suggest?
