Tuesday, May 24, 2022 - The 'Hate What God Hates' Series: 7 Sins God Hates

May 24, 2022

This week I’m emphasizing that loving God means loving what He loves and hating what He hates. Do you know that in Prov 6: 16-19, God identifies 7 things that He hates? Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. In this passage, God is clear. He hates the ungodly and evil usage of the body He created to glorify Him. He hates a proud look and the haughty attitude of anyone. He hates a lying tongue. He hates hands that shed innocent blood not just in the murder of innocent adults but innocent babies in abortion. He hates a heart that devises wicked plans. He hates feet that run to evil. He hates false witnesses. He hates a gossip and troublemakers who sow discord among brothers.

Monday, May 23, 2022 - The 'Hate What God Hates' Series: Hate Sin

May 23, 2022

Transcript: In a recent series I focused on what it means to love God by loving what God loves and obeying what God says. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. But do you know that loving God also means hating what God hates? Balanced Divinely, the God Who perfectly loves also perfectly hates. While impossible for us to always do, it’s our standard and goal. You see God is Truth. He’s just. He’s holy. Anything less than perfect righteousness is sin and God hates sin. That’s why we can’t really understand God’s love, but we can see it and experience it because of Christ’s death on the Cross. But, once redeemed through faith in Christ, God transforms us to love and obey Him, including hating what He hates starting with sin. Do you hate sin?

May 20, 2022

Transcript: Do you really love God? If you do, you’ve experienced God’s love through trusting Jesus Christ as Savior. If you do, you’re obeying God’s commands.

Thursday, May 19, 2022 - Loving God Series: Loving Israel

May 19, 2022

Do you love God? Many people say they do, but as we’ve learned in the previous programs, they can’t possibly do so because they either don’t know God’s love through Jesus Christ, don’t know what God loves or refuse to obey what God commands. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. In I Kings 10:9 for instance, even the Queen of Sheba recognized what God loves when she told Solomon, ‘because Jehovah God loved Israel forever!” You see, God loves Israel, His people the Jews, his capital City Jerusalem. God loves His covenant people with a love that only God can love. How about you? Do you love Israel, His people, His city? If you love God, you’ll love what and who he loves. Will you join with us at stand in the Gap radio and TV and demonstrate your love for God by loving and defending what God says He loves eternally? Let us know at American Pastors Network dot net

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 - Loving God Series: Loving is Obeying

May 18, 2022

Many people say they love God but really can’t because since they don’t know God’s love through Jesus Christ they can’t share what they don’t have. Equally impossible are others who say they love God but don’t do what He says. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. I John 5:3 says “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments.” You see, loving God can be measured by keeping Gods commands. In other words, obedience to God’s word is the measure of ones love of God. Partial obedience – no love. Disobedience? No love. We simply can’t love God if we harbor sin in our hearts, choose to obey only part of what God says, or never read what He wrote. How about you? Do you love God as proven by your obedience to God’s Word? Would you join with us at Stand in the Gap Radio and TV and demonstrate your love for God through your obedience to God?

Friday, May 13, 2022 - Biblical Principles of Marriage: A Perfect Picture

May 13, 2022

This week, I’ve identified thus far 4 biblical principles for the defense of God’s design for marriage. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network, and another Stand in the Gap Minute. At APN we emphasize the authority of Scripture for deciding all areas of life and living beginning with marriage and urge pastors and parents to live it and defend it. The 5th biblical principle defending marriage is God’s declaration in Ephesians 5 that physical marriage between one man and one woman is holy and pictures the spiritual relationship between Christ and the Church. God’s plan of Redemption through Jesus Christ to the Church is the picture of true love and unity between God and man and why all efforts to redefine God’s design is a direct attack on God Himself, His Plan of Redemption, and Jesus Christ.

Thursday, May 12, 2022 - Biblical Principles of Marriage: Keep it Holy

May 12, 2022

Transcript: Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another timely Stand in the Gap Minute This week, I’m sharing 5 biblical principles for the defense of God’s design for marriage. First, marriage is God’s idea. Second, it’s the hinge-pin of the family – the cornerstone of authority in society. Third, marriage is between only one man and one woman. The 4th principle is that to preserve the integrity of marriage and the family, it must be kept holy. No violation or variation of marriage or human sexuality other than within the bounds of marriage between one man and one woman is acceptable without bringing predictable consequences to individuals, communities and nations. Heterosexual infidelity, sex outside marriage, homosexuality, or marriage between multiple men or woman all violate God’s order.

Wednesday, May 11, 2022 - Biblical Principles of Marriage: One-Man, One-Woman

May 11, 2022

Transcript: Today marks the midpoint of our emphasis on marriage. This week, I’m sharing 5 biblical principles in the defense of marriage because strong marriages yield strong families and strong families yield strong nations. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. First, marriage is God’s idea. Second, its society’s foundational institution of authority. The third principle presumes one man and one woman -united and committed - as one flesh – before God. No other combination works in God’s plan. Therefore, no government possesses the authority to legally alter or redefine marriage or family possessing no more moral or civil authority to redefine marriage than to declare invalid Natural Law, or arrogantly declare to be legal such immoral actions as bribery, abortion, or rape.

Tuesday, May 10, 2022 - Biblical Principles of Marriage: Foundational for Society

May 10, 2022

Transcript: Making the case for marriage is easy – if we fear God. This week following Mother’s Day, I’ll identify 5 biblical principles for the defense of marriage. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. Not only is marriage God’s idea, His Plan establishes biblical marriage as foundational for strong families – the cornerstone of authority in human society. God’s foundation for societal order is upheld first by the pillar of Family authority, then Civil, then Church authority – all nurtured by God’s purpose and limitation for each. No nation can be blessed of God without strong families. No family can be strong without strong marriages. No marriage can be strong without following God’s design of 1 man and 1 woman in marriage. Pastor, parent, young person, will you join with us at Stand in the Gap Radio and TV and embrace, defend, and live out God’s plan for marriage in the pulpit and in the home?

Monday, May 9, 2022 - Biblical Principles of Marriage: It's God's Model

May 9, 2022

Transcript: With Mother’s Day now just behind us, it’s a great time to re-emphasize the importance of marriage. Defending the model of 1 man and 1 woman’s easy. Whether examined historically, physiologically, emotionally, economically or morally -God’s model for marriage is superior to any other. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors network and a timely Stand in the Gap Minute. This week, I’ll share 5 biblical principles for the defense of marriage. The first principle is that marriage is God’s idea. God’s model is best because God alone is our Creator and its His right to set the standard. Our opinion doesn’t really matter. We have no vote but we do not have a choice. As the Source of all Authority, God’s plan for male and female, marriage, human sexuality, children and family prevails. Only He has the right to legitimately define it and to demand that we observe it. Will you join with us at Stand in the Gap Radio and TV and embrace, defend and live out God’s Plan for marriage?
