5G Technology, Artificial Intelligence, China, and Persecution

June 16, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, William Parker

We live in an age of expediency. Technology has enabled us to shop with the push of a button; obtain information, listen to music, turn down the heat and lock our doors all with a command to Alexa. While all this burgeoning convenience makes things easier, there’s a cost involved that’s just becoming clear. No doubt you’ve wondered once or twice about whether the information you’re giving and receiving on your Smart phone, tablet or Echo is safe from the public eye; but what if you knew it wasn’t the public you needed to worry about-it was the government who was monitoring your every move-and not necessarily for good reasons. Sounds like Science fiction? Well, actually-it’s happening in real life over in China. On this program, guest William Parker discusses the newest technology-5G, Artificial intelligence, China, and the increasing religious persecution.

Preventing Voter Fraud

June 9, 2019 • June 9, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Tomi Collins

On Tuesday, May 28, Breitbart news had this headline: “The Nuclear Option: Democrats Best Hope for 2020: The No-Information Voter”-meaning when it comes to the true agenda of the Democrat party, ignorance is bliss. As the next major election is already dominating the news, one certainly wonders how in the world your average person is going to make sense of all the media bias and political posturing going on. But even more serious than this, is what's discussed on this program with our guest, Tomi Collins-Executive Director of America Restored and proponent of the Regulation Freedom Amendment. The information and research you'll hear is going to astound you as we reveal the extent of and current state of voter fraud right here in America. While voter information is a huge problem, none of it really matters if the American people are cheated out of a fair and honest election. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Gary Dull Guest: Tomi Collins

Civility in an Uncivilized World

June 2, 2019 • June 2, 2019 • Isaac Crockett, Sam Rohrer, Jeff Coleman

You’ve probably heard the old saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”. If you’re a parent, you’ve probably even said this to your children. This program is about the power of words, especially when it comes to conversing with people with whom we disagree. The invention of social media has now given us the opportunity to exponentially broadcast our beliefs-and for believers, the admonitions in James about life and death being in the power of the tongue have become even more significant. Honorable Jeff Coleman, former Pennsylvania House Representative and author joins this program today to discuss the methods and manners of public debate and the need for genuine civility to make a comeback in our discourse. If you’ve grown tired of the drama and want to hear a refreshing conversation for a change, you'll want to hear this episode of Stand in the Gap Weekend!

National Security at Risk: Within and Without

May 26, 2019 • May 26, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Dave Kistler, Frank Gaffney, Jr.

On Memorial Day, we honor those who gave their lives defending freedom from the birth of our nation until now.

This program features an interview with Frank Gaffney, Jr., founder and Executive Chairman of the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC., with an update and eye-opening information on the national security risks to our nation, both within and without. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Dave Kistler Guest: Frank Gaffney, Jr.

Healing Racial Divisions: The 2019 Movement

May 19, 2019 • May 19, 2019 • Isaac Crockett, Dr. Joe Green

Leading up to the murder trial of abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell, it took several courageous men and women to expose the extent of his crimes. Why were they courageous? Because the reproductive rights of a women in the eyes of the media and liberal left, were and are still untouchable. Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, and sometimes it takes a risk to be the one to point out where things are going wrong, what needs to change, or why certain methods aren’t working. The Bible certainly contains the stories of courageous change-makers, men and women we call Heroes of the Faith. Today, we’re going to hear from a courageous change-maker- Dr. Joe Green who shepherds an inner-city church. He knows what it’s like to live and minister in an urban culture. He’s seen the effects of drugs, gangs, teenage pregnancies, and lack of education or family life for many young men and women growing up in this environment, and he’s calling attention to the need for a new direction in the African-American community through a crusade he’s calling the ‘2019 Movement’. Host: Isaac Crockett Guest: Dr. Joe Green

Update from Capitol Hill

May 12, 2019 • May 12, 2019 • Gary Dull, John Whaley, Keith Davidson, Brad Wells

Did you know that the National Bible Reading Marathon took place two weeks ago in Washington DC where the entire Bible was read from start to finish by believers from all over the world? And did you also know that Focus on the Family held a powerful event in New York City broadcasting a live 4-D ultrasound in Times Square to over 20,000 bystanders? Hello, I’m Sam Rohrer, and good things are happening all around us even though we may not hear about it on the local news or media outlets. On today’s program we’re going to hear some firsthand accounts about some exciting things happening in Washington, DC. As Christians, we believe God is always at work. His plan for the nations and for individual lives is carried out according to His will-and it’s our job to cooperate with His plan by our obedience and sensitivity to the leading of the Holy Spirit. If you’re tired of hearing negative news coverage, you’ll want to listen to this encouraging episode of Stand in the Gap Weekend!

A Convention of States: A Constitutional Firewall Against Socialism

May 5, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Dave Kistler, Dr. Gary Dull, Tom Coburn

According to a recent Gallup study, 60% of all Americans believe the federal government has too much power. We’re increasingly concerned over the future of our country under the behest of dishonest, irresponsible and even juvenile bureaucrats who’re making decisions that affect our civil and religious freedoms. It’s clear our Founding Fathers foresaw the time would come when government would grow too big and powerful. Article Five in the Constitution gives states the right to organize a Convention and propose needed amendments that would restore the balance of power between the branches of government. It’s called a Convention of States and it’s what our guest, former US Senator, Tom Coburn is going to talk about on this program. He'll explain how the process works, why it’s needed, the end goal and what you can do to help raise awareness and support for this growing movement. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-hosts: Dave Kistler, Gary Dull Guest: Tom Coburn

Atheism: Constitutional Defender or Freedom Destroyer?

April 28, 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.

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.

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
