A Convention of States: A Constitutional Firewall Against Socialism

May 5, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Dave Kistler, Dr. Gary Dull, Tom Coburn

According to a recent Gallup study, 60% of all Americans believe the federal government has too much power. We’re increasingly concerned over the future of our country under the behest of dishonest, irresponsible and even juvenile bureaucrats who’re making decisions that affect our civil and religious freedoms. It’s clear our Founding Fathers foresaw the time would come when government would grow too big and powerful. Article Five in the Constitution gives states the right to organize a Convention and propose needed amendments that would restore the balance of power between the branches of government. It’s called a Convention of States and it’s what our guest, former US Senator, Tom Coburn is going to talk about on this program. He'll explain how the process works, why it’s needed, the end goal and what you can do to help raise awareness and support for this growing movement.

Saving the Persecuted Church

October 6, 2019 • October 6, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dede Laugesen

On November 3rd, believers around the world will participate in an international day of prayer for persecuted Christians. In much of the world, the plight of these men, women, and children is dire. While you and I can hardly imagine the suffering and difficulties believers in other countries experience-the Bible tells us that we’re to “remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being (y)ourselves also in the body”. On this Stand in the Gap Weekend program, Dede Laugesen with Save the Persecuted Christians, is going to give us an update from the perspective of someone who’s on the frontlines in the battle against worldwide persecution.

Celebrating the Constitution

September 29, 2019

In September of 1787, thirty-nine men met in Philadelphia to finish and sign a document we now know as the United States Constitution. They pledged their ‘lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor’ to the cause of liberty and the principles contained therein. On September 17th, we celebrated Constitution and Citizenship day-a time to commemorate the brave signers and bold words that entrusted to us a Constitutional Republic. The birth pangs, initiated by the Declaration of Independence finally brought forth a new nation unlike any the world had ever seen. Unfortunately, some people don’t see this document or the story behind it as something to celebrate. Democratic candidate for President, Beto O’Rourke, recently told a crowd that “We can mark the creation of this country not at the Fourth of July, 1776, but August 20, 1619, when the first kidnapped African was brought to this country against his will and in bondage, and as a slave- built the greatness, and the success, and the wealth, that neither he or his descendants would ever be able to participate in or enjoy." Admittedly, it took America a while to recognize her duplicity concerning the slave system, but perhaps O’Rourke has forgotten that over 350,000 (mostly white) men died to free the slaves, and that the fourteenth amendment was added to the Constitution which guaranteed their full rights as American citizens. So, what does that mean for us today? Can we rewrite history for the sake of a politically correct narrative? Does the Constitution still deliver on its promise to protect the life, liberty and happiness of ALL American people? This program explores the history, intent, and current application of the US Constitution Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Gary Dull Guest: David New

Life Altering Leadership

September 22, 2019 • September 22, 2019 • Dave Kistler, Gary Dull

Throughout the pages of history, great men and women have entered and exited the stage- leaving behind great acts of courage, unimaginable innovation, creativity, and noble sacrifice. While you and I may never have the chance to meet someone like a Washington, Tubman or Churchill, we might encounter someone who exhibits true leadership ability that’s made a difference in our own personal life. What are the qualities of a true leader? How does one develop these character qualities in their life? What does the Bible have to say about leadership, especially concerning leadership within the government? This Stand in the Gap Weekend program featuring hosts Dave Kistler and Dr. Gary Dull will shed light on those essential ingredients for life altering leadership.
