The Meteoric Rise of Homeschooling in America - Another Unintended Consequence of COVID-19 Policies

May 24, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett • Guest: Mike Smith

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Mike Smith (President and Co-Founder of Home School Legal Defense Association) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. Schools and education have been impacted because of COVID-19. With schools closed, classrooms emptied, greater online instruction for millions, no instruction at all for tens of thousands; school instruction has changed. There’s one approach to schooling that has proceeded forward with no impact and that is homeschooling. Normally in America the number of homeschooled students is over 2 million, but the number now being homeschooled at home are multiple times more that that. With the uncertainty that exists with government health policy experts about a potential 2nd wave in the fall individuals such as Tony Fauci recently said, “Parents should plan on homeschooling this fall”. For millions of parents thrown into the position of having to personally participate in their children’s education at home (most for the very first time) the number of parents now schooling at home has experienced a meteoric rise – an unintended consequence of COVID-19 Policies. How has and will homeschooling be changed ongoing? Has the forced experience of schooling at home permanently impacted government, private, and Christian (brick and mortar) schools? Has the role of parents generally been changed? Has the role of Christian parents been changed? Join us as we look at the topic “The Meteoric Rise of Homeschooling in America - Another Unintended Consequence of COVID-19 Policies”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion - Part II • June 21, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Paul Blair (Pastor, Founder of Liberty Pastors) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. The understanding of authority (moral, civil, military, and spiritual authority) by its very nature is essential for societal order and purpose. No military can function without clear lines of authority. No government can function without clear lines of authority. No family, business, or community can function without having clear lines of authority; with defined duties, responsibilities, and established fences and boundaries. These definitions of what is permissible are called laws and rules. The breaking of these laws and rules demonstrate a stepping over the line or a jumping over the fence. When that happens there is a consequence. The greater the violation, the greater the consequence. The question is not whether a person, community, or nation will encounter laws, rules, or learn an understanding of duties and responsibilities. The question is simply, whose rules and laws? Whose truth? What duties and responsibilities? While the concept of authority is obvious and in reality quite simple; the proper understanding of authority and response to it is profound. It is also the greatest principle missing from American culture, the American pulpit, and the one principle being exploited by those seeking to destroy America and freedom around the world. Join us as we look at the topic “Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion”. In this second of a two-part program we’ll continue looking at authority. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion - Part 1 • June 14, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Paul Blair (Pastor, Founder of Liberty Pastors) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. In this COVID-19 era governments of the world have marched nearly lock step in response to this end times type plague. Through remarkably common policies governments have departed from historic health related protocols, destroying whole economies, and transferring trillions of dollars of wealth. They’ve locked down billions of the world’s population, greased the path for famines, and increased greater government surveillance. All with no real hope for the future. Now we face an unfolding time of increasing rebellion and lawlessness. Governments impose restrictions that limit freedom and impose measures of bondage. In the streets of America demonstrations have become the norm with an attitude of lawlessness and superiority being evidenced toward others. This requires more and more government with greater and greater turmoil. Citizens around the world are in despair, calling out for help, and grasping for hope. Yet, without God government is incapable of offering hope outside more government control. For those who want hope and truly want a solution God has the plan for order and blessing in our nation or any nation. That plan hinges on the understanding of authority. Join us as we look at the topic “Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion”. In this first of two programs we’ll look at authority. God’s design for order, purpose in society, and God’s design for the citizen and family. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

Understanding the Dual Nature of Christian Citizenship • May 17, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

One of the greatest needs in our increasingly economically wounded and politically fractured nation is sound moral leadership and citizen duty. The often capricious health policies justified by COVID-19 fears are fueling an increasing division and uncertainty. As one moral and lawful fence after another have been repositioned. The rule of law has become the rules of many. Governors and local law enforcement are becoming arbitrary and belligerent as local county commissioners, business owners, and church leaders demand a return to normalcy in their God given desire to earn a living, worship together, and live a life of freedom. The fear of a total societal collapse stares our nation in the face with totalitarian government as the ‘official solution’. Only a clear pathway forward is essential with a revisiting of first principles hold the key to providing stability and direction. Stay tuned as Sam and Isaac consider the important theme, “Understanding the Dual Nature of Christian Citizenship”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.
