As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, many of us have become tone deaf to the mainstream media news-and for good reason. The endless analysis of what’s being done and not being done have caused many of us to inwardly groan. We’d rather get back to the business of living. Whether that’s the case with you or not, there’s one aspect of this crisis that’s rarely, if ever, discussed on the news. But it’s one you’ll want to be aware of, and that is the devastating economic effect the worldwide lock down is having on the persecuted church. Those that were already subjected to criticism and harassment in largely Muslim countries are experiencing increasing hatred and threats directed at them because they call themselves Christians. In some instances, they’re blamed for the Coronavirus pandemic and restricted even more when it comes to business, travel, and worship. Because of the quarantine, they can’t make a living and there’s no government to bail them out. It’s in these moments that the Christian persecuted Church has the opportunity to exchange evil with good and hatred with love. At great cost to themselves, these persecuted believers are sharing food and necessities with the poorest of the poor affected by the Coronavirus policies. Our guest on this program is going to help us understand how to pray and help our fellow persecuted Christians. Host: Isaac Crockett Co-hosts: Sam Rohrer, Dr. Gary Dull Guest: Justin Murff

Words matter but so do definitions. Especially in today’s hyper charged, politically correct culture. Words and phrases that meant one thing ten years ago, have been hijacked to mean something else altogether. With tensions running high over the tragic death of George Floyd on May 25 , what seems to be a simple redefinition of terms is actually proving to be quite deadly. On this program, host Isaac Crockett, will be talking with an African American pastor from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to get his take on all that’s happening across the nation. Dr. Joe Green joins joins the discussion about real issues plaguing the black community, tracing the problem and the solution back to where it belongs and separating the term racism from bigotry and prejudice. Yes, racism is as old as time. The enslavement of people groups beginning in the some of the world’s earliest civilizations-Persia, Greece, Rome and even on the African continent with blacks enslaving blacks at an alarming rate due to tribal conflict. It only goes to show that the heart is desperately wicked-as the Bible tells us. Bent on elevating self and mistreating others, racism is a heart issue that can only be solved by the gospel and the acknowledgement of the Creator God who has made us equally loved and valued in His sight.

The Left’s War Against the Police: Their Gain, America’s Pain

Wikipedia tells us the central idea of Cultural Marxism is to soften up and prepare Western Civilization for economic Marxism after a gradual, relentless, sustained attack on every institution of Western culture, including schools, literature, art, film, the Judeo-Christian worldview tradition, marriage and the family, sexual mores, national sovereignty, etcetera. The attacks are usually framed in Marxist terms as a class struggle between oppressors and oppressed; the members of the latter class allegedly include women, minorities, homosexuals, and adherents of non-Western ideologies such as Islam. Cultural Marxism has been described as "the cultural branch of globalism.” (www.conservapedia.com/Cultural_Marxism) This definition, while lengthy, is the prelude to the program today. It encapsulates all that’s taking place across our nation as calls to defund the police are taken up in places like Minneapolis, New York City and Atlanta, Georgia. The police (and all those in positions of power-whether white or black) are considered the oppressors; the African American man or woman (specifically those who feel disenfranchised by the ‘system’) are the oppressed. Group names like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, Democrat Socialist, Jihadi, the Muslim Brotherhood and others all subscribe to the same ideology with varying agendas. The end result, according to author Dinesh D’Souza is a “socialist state that reduces its citizens to abject conformity by crushing the independence of spirit and mind.” It’s the opposite of what our Founders believed and what the Bible teaches and it’s what our guest, John Guandolo with Understanding the Threat Organization is going to share with us.
The Fourteenth Amendment: The Federal Government on Steroids
June 14, 2020
The fourteenth amendment of the United States Constitution, section one, reads like: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the Unites States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. History tells us this amendment was ratified in July of 1868-one of three amendments dealing with slavery and their newfound rights to be called citizens of the United States and benefiters of all that entailed. But somehow, one hundred years later, this amendment has been hijacked and interpreted to absorb the power of the states and transfer it to the Federal government; and create rights from thin air for abortion, same sex marriage, or any other so called ‘right’ that could be shoehorned into this ‘guarantee of freedom’. Truly, this has been the bane of our nation ever since and guest, Constitutional Attorney David New, joins the team to explain more on this program titled, "The Fourteenth Amendment: The Federal Government on Steroids."
