Update from Capitol Hill

May 12, 2019

May 12, 2019 • Gary Dull, John Whaley, Keith Davidson, Brad Wells

Did you know that the National Bible Reading Marathon took place two weeks ago in Washington DC where the entire Bible was read from start to finish by believers from all over the world? And did you also know that Focus on the Family held a powerful event in New York City broadcasting a live 4-D ultrasound in Times Square to over 20,000 bystanders? Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, and good things are happening all around us even though we may not hear about it on the local news or media outlets. On today’s program we’re going to hear some firsthand accounts about some exciting things happening in Washington, DC. As Christians, we believe God is always at work. His plan for the nations and for individual lives is carried out according to His will-and it’s our job to cooperate with His plan by our obedience and sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit. If you’re tired of hearing negative news coverage, you’ll want to listen to this encouraging episode of Stand in the Gap Weekend!

Islam and Public Schools: A Threat to Freedom

October 13, 2019 • October 13, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Richard Thompson

The stated goal of Islam is to establish a worldwide Caliphate-which is an area ruled by the laws of Islam otherwise known as Sharia law. The means used to achieve this end have historically been violent, treacherous, and murderous. This program will add another category of means used to subjugate the enemies of Islam-one which hasn’t been publicly recognized for its insidious nature, the indoctrination of our public-school teachers and students with Islamic propaganda, all at the tax- payers expense. Schools throughout the US are allowing Muslims to come into the classroom and teach their own version of American history, victimization, and superiority. Under the guise of diversity training and multiculturalism teaching, our school children are learning the five pillars of Islam, how to recite the Shahada, and what the Q’uran has to say about the rituals and observances required by Sharia law. While students are no longer allowed to pray aloud or read their Bible in class, entire mandatory school sessions are dedicated to Islamic awareness. Our guest on today’s program, Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center in Michigan, is going to expose what’s really happening in today’s public schools.

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
