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.

Fathering the Fatherless

July 14, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, Tim Schneider

Almost 60 years ago, about one in ten children grew up without the physical presence of a father in the home. Today, the staggering reality is that one in three children are fatherless-with an absent, incarcerated, or deceased father. While we know the need for children to grow up with both a father and a mother is crucial to their physical, social, and spiritual health, the culture continues to rush headlong into the destruction of the family unit as we’ve known it since the beginning of creation. Hollywood and the media glorify the single Mom or Dad, the homosexual couple, and transgender children; but these lifestyles and choices don’t come without a price to pay. On this program, our guest, Tim Schneider, will give his testimony about how he grew up without a father and a dysfunctional mother. He’ll tell us about his difficult early years and the moment his life was changed through a local church ministry and the men and women who reached out to him with the gospel and a helping hand.

From Sexual Bondage to Spiritual Freedom: A True Story

July 7, 2019 • July 7, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, George Carneal

In I Corinthians 6:9-11, the Apostle Paul writes, "…Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who submit to or perform homosexual acts, nor thieves, nor the greedy,nor drunkards, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers,will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God…" On today’s program, former homosexual, George Carneal will testify that these verses applied to him-what he was before and after he met Christ. He’ll tell us why he entered the gay lifestyle and what he found as he sank further and further into drug and alcohol addiction, depression, and finally attempted suicide. Eventually He found Jesus and chronicled his journey in his book, "From Queer to Christ: My Journey into the Light". Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Gary Dull Guest: George Carneal www.georgecarneal.com

Biblical Expectations for Godly Fathers

June 30, 2019 • June 30, 2019 • Isaac Crockett, Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull

George MacDonald, nineteenth century author and poet, once wrote this, “Fatherhood is the core of the universe”. What did he mean by this and if correct, wouldn’t the unimaginable impact of a father’s relationship to his children be consequentially earth shaking? As believers, we know God’s design for families is a father and mother, raising children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And that those children would continue the cycle so there will be future generations who’ll witness and testify to His goodness at all times in every place. We also know that Satan hates the idea of fatherhood. The destruction of the family and it’s resulting decay of society is his delight. The assault on parents in our own country has been devastating and we’re now reaping the disastrous effects of the rebellious 60’s and 70’s, the sexual revolution and the rise of feminism. This program focuses on 5 things fathers must teach their children from Deuteronomy 6 so that they will follow the Lord with all of their hearts. Host: Isaac Crockett Co-hosts: Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull
