Should Christians be involved in the healthcare debate, tax reform, or foreign policy discussions? After all, these aren’t spiritual issues so why should we care what the government does in these areas? If this is one of the arguments you’ve heard in favor of staying out of politics, this program suggests that the Bible has a lot to say about these things. Whether by principle or example, the Word of God has the answers for “life and godliness”. Those areas that affect our lives-like health care and taxes-are important and we should take the time to understand the issues and evaluate them from a Christian worldview perspective. On this program our guest, Twila Brase, going to be talking about one of those- in particular-health care. The question we might ask ourselves in this instance is: Has the government been given the responsibility to oversee the health of its citizens? As Romans 13 clearly tells us, the role of government is to punish the evildoer and protect its citizens-not mandate health insurance or coerce doctors and hospitals to abide by politically correct ideology. And as you'll find out-neither are they given the authority to invade individual privacy.

Psalm 212 1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. 2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth. 3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. 4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand. 6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. 8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore. As our nation moves into a time of uncertainty and anxiety over the Corona virus-we can be sure that the God whom the Psalmist wrote about, is the same God that keeps and preserves us in the midst of every crisis. On this program, hosts and guests will discuss the need for all, both young and old alike, to listen to and absorb the truths found in the Bible-because it is life and health for our souls!

God's Requirements for Answered Prayer

If you’ve ever read the book of Leviticus in the Bible, you know that the theme of this book is to demonstrate the holiness of God-His perfection of character and wisdom. Everything related to the creation of the tabernacle-it’s altars, curtains, utensils, and even the kind of incense used was to be made a certain way with certain materials. All of these were in preparation for the Israelite people to worship God, to experience His glory and to seek His forgiveness from sin. The Bible says in the New Testament book of Hebrews-we no longer have to enter a tabernacle, present a sacrifice, or depend upon priests to intercede for us. The author writes that we can now enter the presence of God through a new and living way. The blood of Jesus Christ-applied to all who believe in him, has torn the vale of separation between us, and we can now pray to Him anywhere, anytime, and for any reason. While we no longer need to observe Levitical customs or laws, there are, however, four principles we must observe if we’re to see God hear and answer prayer.

Of Presidents and Precedents: Did our Founding Fathers Put Their Trust in a Big God, or a Big Govern

During George Washington’s first inaugural speech, he said, “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the Invisible hand which conducts the affairs of men more than the People of the Unites States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation seems to have been distinguished by some token of Providential agency.” Over 200 years later, we know that Washington was entirely right about the guiding hand of God in our nation’s founding and continuing to this day. But what do we know about our nation’s presidents and the godly precedents theyt set, particularly in the early years of our nation’s history? Our guest on this program, Tim Barton, President of WallBuilders, is going to give us some insights into why the Presidents did what they did-facts and stories you’ve probably never heard of. So, if you’re ready to be reminded about why and how God blessed this country stay tuned for this next hour of Stand in the Gap Weekend. Host: Isaac Crockett Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull\ Guest: Tim Barton
