Tuesday, June 22, 2021 - The Greatest Church Problems Series: The Problem of False Teaching

June 22, 2021

Transcript: Another major problem plaguing the American Church is Fake News! Not only impacting the internet; it’s weakened the church. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with another Stand in the Gap Minute. As we continue considering the greatest problems facing the American church, false teaching is one of the biggest. II Peter 2:1 notes, “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies.” Entire denominations have embraced unbiblical teachings to appear more inclusive, yet Peter noted these false teachings will bring “swift destruction.” We cannot compromise and expect God to bless the church. Instead, we’re called to hold fast to the truth, continuing in what we know is right as defined by God’s Word. Our good intentions must never include becoming like our culture, lest we become enablers of evil, promoters of heresy forcing God to spit us out. Discover more at American Pastors Network dot net.

Monday, June 21, 2021 - Greatest Church Problems Series: The Whole Counsel of God

June 21, 2021

Transcript: The American Church is sick. The root of this sickness has one main cause- and that’s the refusal to preach the full counsel of God’s Word! Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with another Stand in the Gap Minute. The Apostle Paul in Acts 20:27 told the leaders in the Ephesian church, “I have not shunned to declare to you the whole counsel of God.” He taught all of Scripture in order to fully prepare these early believers to recognize false teachings. The need to teach the whole counsel of God remains vital today. Many congregations hear only the positive aspects of Scripture, with the pulpit neglecting the more controversial aspects of holy living and a biblical perspective of marriage and family. Shrinking from the duty to preach the whole counsel of God has become one of the greatest problems facing the American church, but it’s one that can be corrected—if the pulpit once again begins teaching all of God’s Word.

June 18, 2021

Transcript: Fathers, teach your children gratefulness to God. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, with the American Pastors’ Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute.

In the future, your children will see this memorial and ask you fathers why it’s here. That’s your chance to remind them of God’s power, provision, and protection. It’s the time to teach thankfulness to God Who alone preserves, blesses and defends. Fathers, use holidays, birthdays, and special events as memorials to teach the faithfulness of God.

Father’s Day’s a great time to consider God’s role as Father. As a father of six and grandfather of 14, I’ve thought much about my role, and this I’ve learned.

Monday, June 14, 2021 - Father's Day Series: Wake Up Fathers

June 14, 2021

Transcript: Where are the fathers? Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. A generation ago, the Supreme Court defied the God of heaven and declared legal the murder of our babies - and our fathers were silent. When the 10 Commandments were declared to be poison to our children’s minds - our pastors were silent. When the Courts and Culture continue to attack God’s model for family by redefining marriage and human sexuality, why is there such continuing silence? At APN, we believe that God’s judgment on our nation is in part because fathers and pastors a generation ago refused to oppose evil and actively resist tyranny. The question is, what will our pastors and we as fathers do now? As Mordecai said to Esther of old, if we are silent now, evil will prevail and freedom lost. Fathers, join with us at stand in the Gap radio and TV and resist evil. This is no time to be silent. Stand with us at American Pastors Network dot net

June 10, 2021

Transcript: In Ephesians 6:16, the Apostle Paul says that above all, to stand against the Devil’s schemes, we must pick up and use the shield of Faith.

Thursday, June 3, 2021 - Memorial Day series -True Heroes: “Great in Truth”

June 3, 2021

Transcript: Heroes in God’s eyes are needed today more than ever. The prophet Jeremiah was a hero who couldn’t be silent on truth. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. Jeremiah said, ‘when I rebuked the people because of their sins, they ridiculed God and made fun of me. So, I said, I won’t talk of God any longer - but I couldn’t stand being quiet because God’s word became a burning fire shut up in my bones. So, I spoke more boldly of the LORD because He was with me.” In Jeremiah’s day, the culture’ d forgotten God and rejected His Word. The people were greedy and idolatrous. Unrepentant and evil in heart, God’s judgment was imminent. Calling the people back to God and His word was Jeremiah’s job. The results were up to God. The same is true today.

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 0 Memorial Day Series: True Heroes - Great in Integrity

June 2, 2021

Transcript: This week celebrated Memorial Day so I’m identifying true heroes and what make them great. Job’s a hero described by God as a man of integrity -“perfect and upright”, fearing God and hating evil- in public and in private. God knew it - and so did Satan. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, with the American Pastor’s Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. There’s no substitute for men and women of integrity – not in God’s eyes or in today’s corrupted culture. Fathers, mothers, children, pastors, elected leaders - all must aspire to be people of integrity if we wish to be true heroes. Job was ‘perfect’ - blameless before God. He was ‘upright’- right before others – no broken relationships, prevailing in honesty, and consistent biblical living –24 hours a day. Don’t be fooled, your reputation is what people think you are. But your character, is what God knows you to be. Integrity matters for true heroes. Are you a hero in God’s eyes? Go to American Pastors network dot net and join with other heroes committed to living with integrity.

Tuesday, June 1, 2021 - Memorial Day Series- True Heroes: “Great in Trust”

June 1, 2021

Transcript: This week, we’re commemorating true heroes – the kind we need today. From the time I was young, Daniel -the Politician and Prophet – was my hero. Kidnapped, orphaned, sexually abused, and relocated to a foreign, idolatrous nation, Daniel stood the test of character by purposing in his heart to trust God -even as a boy. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer with the American Pastors Network and another Stand in the Gap Minute. True heroes are great because they trust in God. For Daniel, God gave him great wisdom and understanding. Exalted to Vice-President of Babylon, he served powerful kings. His colleagues tried to destroy him – but found him blameless. Though his godly life made him a target and even in his old age ended him in a lion’s den- Daniel served God faithfully and trusted God implicitly. He was unwavering in his trust – a true hero.
