American Exceptionalism: The History, The Challenges, The Future

April 15, 2019 • April 15, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Rep. Stephanie Borowicz, David New

If you could name a few reasons why America is exceptional in the sense that she’s unique among other nations, what would you say? Perhaps you'd start with her constitutional freedoms-the right to free speech and the freedom of religion. The right to own property and defend oneself. The economic blessings of free enterprise and capitalism; the freedom to express ideas and create wealth. To participate in democratic elections and to lobby for new laws and ways to make our country a better place. Yes, these freedoms aren’t found anywhere else and its why millions flock to our shores each year to find their place in a culture that values the individual above the collective whole. Yet we can't forget to mention that the foundation for all of these blessings are rooted in a biblical worldview. The Bible makes it clear that the inherent value of a person isn’t their skin color, their age or ability to contribute to society; rather it’s because every man, woman and child is made in the image of God, and as such is endowed with God-given rights that respect and protect all that makes us human. This program features a special guest and her moment in the ‘American Exceptionalism’ spotlight. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull Guest: Rep. Stephanie Borowicz Guest: David New

Lessons from Purim

April 7, 2019 • April 7, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, JB Bernstein

In mid-March, the festival of Purim was celebrated by Jews around the world to commemorate the defeat of Haman’s plot to massacre God’s chosen people as recorded in the book of Esther. Modern day Jews use this time to give gifts to each other, read about the great deliverance, and consume traditional foods. But those Jews who’ve come to know the true Messiah cherish this celebration even more, as it parallels the gospel story. This program will share some lessons from this incredible narrative and apply it to our lives. Who are the Haman’s, Mordecai’s and Esther’s of our own times-both spiritually and physically? What meaning can a book written thousands of years ago have for us living in the twenty first century? If you’re a believer, and you’ve never heard the story of Purim told from a Jewish perspective, you'll want to listen to this recorded program. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-hosts: Gary Dull, Dave Kistler

Islamophobia or Islamic Friendly: The Danger of Ignoring the Truth

March 31, 2019 • Dave Kistler, Dr. Gary Dull, Tom Wallace

Eighteen years ago, the world watched in horror as the twin towers collapsed during the largest domestic Islamic terrorist attack the US had ever seen. Two weeks ago, New Zealand tragically experienced its own domestic attack as a self-proclaimed white supremacist shot and killed 50 Muslims who were worshiping in their mosque. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer and while both ideologies are dangerous, one is more so today than the other as we consider the threats to our own country. While the loss of life in New Zealand was a tremendous shock and heartbreak, we must carefully interpret Hollywood and the media’s assertions of Islam as a peaceful religion. Our guest on the program today is going to answer questions like: Is there a real and a fake Islam? Can a Muslim uphold the United States Constitution? Is there a link between Muslim immigration and violence? and more. Host: Dave Kistler Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull Guest: Tom Wallace

Shedding Biblical Light on Important Issues

March 24, 2019 • Isaac Crockett, Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull

In Acts 20:28, Paul encourages the elders at Ephesus to "Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood.” Did you know that most often in Scripture, the Pastor is given the title of Shepherd? The idea here is that the Pastors sole purpose, his aim is to care for the flock-the church-God has given him because one day he’ll give an answer for how he’s discharged his responsibility. It’s not an easy task, especially in this culture, but the man who’s been called by God will be enabled by Him to sufficiently fulfill his duty. Unfortunately, statistics show that the majority of Pastors have neglected the flock. The sheep are starving for the truths that will help them live as lights in a dark world; the doctrines and principles that will help them be the fathers, mothers, children, co-workers, bosses, neighbors and friends who will effectively live out the gospel in their everyday lives. This program examines the ‘why and the what’. Why do Pastors stay silent and what should they be saying…? Host: Pastor Isaac Crockett Co-hosts: Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull

Socialism Versus the U.S. Constitution

March 17, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, David New

Benjamin Franklin was attributed to saying this: “Our new Constitution is now established and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer and while I’m grateful that our Constitution has endured for almost 250 years, it’s increasingly under attack from the liberal elites and front running Democrat candidates for the 2020 election who are calling for change under the banner of socialism. Unfortunately, there are many who don’t understand what socialism is, what its tenets are and how a society functions within its confines even though history has taught us a thorough lesson through the rise and fall of Communism and Nazi-ism that had socialism at its root. This program, with guest Attorney David New, will define the terms and set the record straight. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-hosts: Dave Kistler, Dr. Gary Dull

The High Cost of Open Borders

March 10, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Leo Hohmann, Dr. Mark Christian

World Net Daily editor, Leo Hohmann, had this to say in his most recent article: “When President Trump was on the campaign trail, he made illegal immigration, Islamic terrorism and Muslim immigration the focal points of his candidacy…Trump is not an expert on the Brotherhood’s history, its tactics or its deceptive, two-pronged strategy of using both terror and peaceful political warfare to wear down Western democracies, which it sees as the enemies of Allah and his “prophet.” He was simply responding to what he saw going on in Western Europe and the massive population shift from the Islamic world into the West, basically under the false pretense of humanitarianism propagated by the United Nations and other globalist surrogates.” Leo goes on to say that “Trump rejects the multiculturalism model espoused by the U.N. and the E.U., which has brought a spike in terrorism, crime, rioting and sexual assaults on women.” Guests, Dr. Mark Christian, and Leo Hohmann will discuss personal testimonies and insights on the hot topic of open borders which is causing division, not just in the nation, but within our churches and denominations. What's the answer to the most pressing questions and can we come to a consensus on this issue? Host: Sam Rohrer Guests: Leo Hohmann, Dr. Mark Christian

When Good News becomes Wrong News

March 4, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dillon Burroughs

“Don’t judge me!” “Live and let live!” You do what you want, and I’ll do what I want-and it’s all good. But is it all good? What happens when sharing the gospel isn’t politically correct, socially acceptable, or in lock step with groupthink? According to a new Barna research article, Millennials are confused about whether or not to share their faith. In fact, some feel it's downright wrong. While it's one thing to want to share the gospel and not know how, it’s quite another to know the gospel but not want to share it. Dillon Burroughs, co-host of Truth for a New Generation, joins the program as guest to help us understand how to address this concerning attitude.

The Trump Presidency: An Honest Assessment

February 24, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler

Now that President Trump has been in office for a little over 2 years, it’s time for a report card! On this program, host Sam Rohrer and co-hosts, Dave Kistler and Gary Dull evaluate the first half of the Trump administration. While we already know what the media and pundits are saying, it’s a good idea to take a look at where we are as a nation on a number of critical issues. After all, it’s the President’s leadership that has largely influenced some of the most important policy changes we’ve seen in a while. Why do this? Because it’s easy to lose the forest for the trees. The liberal news outlets including newspaper, magazines, online blogs, podcasts and radio programs work hard to convince the public that Trump is a hypocritical racist, bigoted, misogynist who’s on an ego trip to save the world. Is this the truth? Find out on this program as SIG hosts rate President Trump’s performance from a biblical and constitutional perspective! Host: Sam Rohrer Co-hosts: Gary Dull, Dave Kistler

Atheism- Constitutional Defenders or Freedom Destroyers?

February 10, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, Ken Ham

Our founding fathers,knew the need for dependence upon God for the building of this great nation. But attempts by Atheists and their organizations to eliminate all traces of our Christian heritage from every part of American life would make them roll over in their graves. While the atheistic Freedom from Religion Foundation and others like it claim to uphold Constitutional principles, in reality, they aren’t concerned about them at all. If they were, they’d see the Judeo-Christian heritage throughout all of our early documents, buildings, and laws and know that the Constitution was based on biblical principles that can’t be thrown out or denied. This program features Ken Ham, founder and President of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, who talks about his experience with atheistic organizations and the concerning agenda of those who hate God.

Regressive, Not Progressive

February 17, 2019 • Isaac Crockett, Matt Recker, Gary Dull, Sam Rohrer

When Jesus was speaking to his disciples about the religious leaders of the day, He explained that because of the hardness of their hearts they would hear truth, but not understand it. They’d see His life and witness His miracles, but never accept that He was the Messiah. And in their misplaced zeal, they’d crucify the Son of God. This program addresses the hardness of hearts in our own culture from those who embrace a secular worldview and reject truth; believing the lie that man is answerable to no one. This brazen attitude was on full display when the state of New York passed legislation giving a woman the right to abort her baby up until the 40th week of pregnancy, that is-the moment of delivery. And while some may call this a progressive agenda, we would say it’s regressive-that is-a moral backslide that defies the Creator God and Giver of life.

Why the Church is Shrinking from Within

February 3, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, Dr. Alex McFarland

Recent research shows that as many as 66% of young adults walk away from church once they leave home. While there are a number of different reasons for this, the underlying responsibility for ensuring our children have an active faith lies first of all with the home, followed by the church. Both of these contribute to the shaping of a worldview which in turn affects the life choices of our kids once they become adults. In this program, Dr. Alex McFarland, founder of the ministry, Truth for a New Generation, shares from his experience as Pastor, author, and speaker at thousands of conferences around the world, about why he believes we’re losing the battle for our youth.

The Right to Life

January 27, 2019 • Sam, Rohrer,Dave Kistler, Gary Dull,

In 2015, Americans were shocked when undercover videos of Planned Parenthood workers discussing the harvesting and apparent trafficking of aborted fetal body parts were released. Since then, instead of a campaign to shut down the illegal and horrifying practice of this abortion industry giant, the media continues it’s support for abortion and those who make it possible; while denigrating and downplaying the pro-life movement whenever and wherever possible. On January 18th, the 46th annual March for Life took place in Washington DC with between two to three hundred thousand participating. This event is held each year in remembrance of Roe vs. Wade, the legislation passed in 1973 that legalized abortion. Yes, the defenders of life are alive and well and this program covers the reasons why all people should be in favor of life-at every stage. Host- Sam Rohrer Co-hosts: Dr. Gary Dull, Dave Kistler

Diseases in America: Are We Really This Sick?

January 13, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Dr. Gary Dull, Dr. Jane Orient

From new vaccines to the most recent outbreaks of a ‘polio like’ virus; from the frightening drug resistant bacteria to the obesity epidemic, the medical world has its hands full. Yet we know that because of the fall, when Adam and Eve sinned and death entered the world, illness and disease have claimed the lives of billions since the beginning of time. On this program, special guest Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons, will express her thoughts on the current state of health in America, and what she thinks is the number one health threat in our nation. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull

Understanding the Debt Trap

January 7, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, William Parker

Matthew 6:20 tells us to ‘lay up…treasure in heaven’..., meaning the deeds done in this life, will bring us either eternal reward or loss. Yet how can we do so from a financial perspective, if we’re so far in debt we can’t meet our secular, let alone sacred, obligations? This program explores the debt trap on a national and personal basis with William Parker, a Kingdom Advisor and principal with BRI-Biblically Responsible Investing, Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull
