The Bible: Indispensable to the Survival of a Nation

April 21, 2019

April 21, 2019 • Dave Kistler, Gary Dull, Keith Davidson

On April 15, the 800 year old Notre Dame Cathedral in France caught fire and sustained significant damage. One CNN news reporter wrote this about it: The massive, majestic cathedral looked like it had been there forever, and would remain until the end of time. If only for a moment, Notre Dame ablaze reminded us that we all share this world; that human history means everyone's past. If only for a moment, the notion of a "World Heritage," which UNESCO formally bestows on places that we, as humanity, ought to care for and cherish so that we can pass them to future generations, seemed exactly right. We all hurt over the loss of Notre Dame." While the history and significance of this building can never be replaced, the truth is that the Christian influence of the era in which Notre Dame was built, largely propagated by the Catholic church, was lost many years ago. This building of spires, towers, and glass contained many biblical sculptures, paintings, and carvings-yet it was temporary. The work of masons and builders that could be lost in a moment. This Stand in the Gap Weekend program centers around a piece of history that can never be destroyed. In fact, the Divine proof of its eternal existence goes like this, “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my Word shall never pass away.” Of course, those are the words penned in the Bible-that book of books that will last throughout the ages of time and beyond. Guest, Keith Davidson with Seedline International, joins the program to talk about the significance of the Bible and why it's indispensable to the survival of a nation.

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
