The Serious Stakes of the Upcoming Election

October 18, 2020 • Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, Jim O'Bryon

If we say someone leans to the right-politically, what do we mean? Conversely, if we say someone leans to the left-what do we mean? Most of us identify the right with Conservative Judeo-Christian values and the left as being more liberal-taking a progressive position politically. But would you be surprised to hear that the Bible has something to say about the right and the left that actually corresponds with our political parties today? It might not sound legitimate, but our guest on today’s program is going to share from his own personal Bible study on this topic, and then we’ll discuss some of the positions held by the left and the right leading up to the general election. These positions clearly define what’s at stake in this election and if you’re not sure where your party stands on the issues important to you-you’ll want to listen to this episode of Stand in the Gap Weekend!

Bursting Balloons: From the Stock Market to Joe Biden

February 28, 2021 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Bob Adelmann

Many of us remember the 2008 financial crisis which took place due, in large part, to the reckless investing and risky lending practices of major banks, especially in the real estate market. When talking about this event-we often say the “housing bubble burst”. Indeed, homes became vacant and mortgages defaulted leaving investors, bankers, and the government holding the bag. As if we're witnessing Déjà vu, the economic wave we've been riding is about to crash. Financial policies spanning administrations have set the stage and we, as believers and citizens must discern how to think and act on the information we know. What do we do as we watch out-of-control government spending, the closing of businesses because of COVID restrictions while at the same time the extraordinarily wasteful stimulus package designed to line the pockets of specialty interest groups, pet projects, and wealthy donors which barely touches the desperate need of families who’ve lost jobs, incomes, and loved ones? Today’s guest on the program is a writer and researcher of economics and has a great deal to share with us on this topic. Guest Bob Adelmann shares from his expertise in economics and finances on where we are, and where we're going. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Gary Dull Guest: Bob Adelmann

COVID-19 Vaccination and the Law with Attorney Mat Staver

February 14, 2021 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Mat Staver

During times of emergency or natural disasters, the United States has the means to successfully mobilize the Red Cross, National Guard, and National Emergency Funds to help with rescue, shelter, and other immediate needs for unfortunate victims. Local law enforcement, mayors, and even governors are given temporary emergency powers to do what’s necessary to restore safety and order. On this program, hosts and guests will be talking about emergency powers and how they’ve been abused by state governors during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re also going to address the increasingly oppressive vaccination requirements, and the ever present mask mandates. Does the law have anything to say about these issues? If so, where is the outcry? Have we become so used to being told what to do and trusting the experts that we don’t realize how our freedoms are being taken away? If you want to know the answers to those questions and more-you’ll want to listen to this informative interview with Attorney Mat Staver, Founder and President of Liberty Counsel.
