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

Life Altering Leadership

September 22, 2019 • September 22, 2019 • Dave Kistler, Gary Dull

Throughout the pages of history, great men and women have entered and exited the stage- leaving behind great acts of courage, unimaginable innovation, creativity, and noble sacrifice. While you and I may never have the chance to meet someone like a Washington, Tubman or Churchill, we might encounter someone who exhibits true leadership ability that’s made a difference in our own personal life. What are the qualities of a true leader? How does one develop these character qualities in their life? What does the Bible have to say about leadership, especially concerning leadership within the government? This Stand in the Gap Weekend program featuring hosts Dave Kistler and Dr. Gary Dull will shed light on those essential ingredients for life altering leadership.

Overcoming a Crisis of Faith with Hope in God

September 15, 2019 • September 15, 2019 • Isaac Crockett, Dr. Gary Dull, Abigail Crockett

The beloved hymn, “It is Well with My Soul” has a verse that triumphantly proclaims: Though Satan should buffet Though trials should come, Let this blest assurance control- That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate, and hath shed His own blood for my soul…” In times of difficulty or doubt, where do you turn or to whom or what do you cling? If you’re a believer, you know the answer to this question-but sometimes it’s easier said than done. Doubts and fear crop up in our minds and confusion sets in. We begin to question what we believe and why, and God seems far away-a distant, impersonal being who doesn’t understand or care about what we’re going through. On this Stand in the Gap Weekend program, we’re going to hear from Abigail Crockett, who experienced her own crisis of faith. Her story of deliverance will encourage you, especially if you find yourself in a hard place today. Host: Isaac Crockett Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull Guest: Abigail Crockett

Promise Keepers: A New Era

September 8, 2019 • September 8, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Ken Harrison

On October 4, 1997, it was estimated over a million men assembled on the National Mall in Washington, DC to attend a conference titled: Stand in the Gap: A Sacred Assembly of Men. Even if you weren’t in attendance at that gathering, the Promise Keepers movement became well known and was mightily used of God both nationally and internationally to evangelize and disciple men in their role as singles, husbands and fathers. On this program, Ken Harrison, board member and chairman of the newly relaunched Promise Keeper movement will share more about the new leadership, but with the same vision, Promise Keepers is praying for a “massive revival and transformation” among men in a culture that has rejected the biblical role of manhood and is openly attacking masculinity and its value in an overtly feminine, self-absorbed, secular society. Host: Sam Rohrer, Guest: Ken Harrison

Challenges Pastors Face

A Story of Repentance and Restoration - Pt. 2 • September 1, 2019 • Sam Rohrer

A severe grace. That’s what Pastor Jamie Mitchell called God’s discipline in his life when he stepped down from ministry due to a moral failure. As we’re going to hear in the second part of this two-part interview, Pastor Jamie found God’s discipline was proof of God’s great love and forgiveness through a period of repentance and restoration he personally experienced where he is looking for opportunities to help the body of Christ and so many churches and pastors in need. The Mitchell's story is sadly familiar to many families in leadership who’ve gone through similar circumstances and found themselves struggling to survive amidst the loneliness and despair at the sudden loss of livelihood, friendships, and a social circle where they were respected and appreciated. Please join us for part two of this Stand in the Gap Weekend program titled: Challenges Pastors Face: A Story of Repentance and Restoration. NOTE: Contains extra material that wasn't able to be included on the radio broadcast due to time restraints.

Challenges Pastors Face

A Story of Repentance and Restoration - Pt. 1 • August 24, 2019 • Sam Rohrer

Recent news of Joshua Harris (author of "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" and former pastor) and Marty Sampson (worship music writer, singer, and active member of Hillsong Church) publicly renouncing their faith has certainly shaken up the Christian community. It’s never easy to hear of Christian leaders leaving the faith or falling from grace. When they do, we feel hurt, angry, and betrayed. We wonder how to respond and what should be done. On this program we’re going to hear the personal story of one such Pastor, Dr. Jamie Mitchell. In 2016, Pastor Jamie had to step down from the church (he had pastored for 15 plus years) due to a moral failure. He and his wife Kris tell their story. One of repentance, healing and restoration. if you’re a Pastor, a Christian leader, or a Church member who wants to understand what the Bible has to say about walking through this kind of challenge in the life of a leader. Please listen to the first part of this special two part program.

How to be an Overcomer in the Midst of Evil

August 18, 2019 • August 18, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Alex Kendrick, Pastor John Mallonnee

“What do you allow to define you?” That’s the byline of the new film hitting theaters on August 23rd called, “Overcomer”. This program features an interview with Alex Kendrick, co-writer, actor and producer of this film. You might recognize his name since he and his brothers produced other faith-based movies like Facing the Giants, Fireproof, and War Room. The new movie, Overcomer, explores the theme of identity-a word we hear quite often from the main-stream media. However, the kind of “identity” they’re talking about is based on feelings rather than the truth because we can’t really know who we are if we can’t answer the relevant questions of life- like who made me and why am I here? The characters in the movie wrestle with these questions and more as they face the challenges and difficulties life often throws our way. Then Pastor John Mallonnee shares how God used an opportunity for him to be a witness while serving on his local school board.

In the Defense of Life

August 11. 2019 • August 11, 2019 • San Rohrer, Gay Dull, Scott Klusendorf

The extreme left position of abortion on demand and death for babies who survive a failed abortion are indicative of a culture where the innocent and defenseless among us are disposable and valueless. This program discusses the Christian position that values each and every human being from the moment of conception until the moment of death. Scott Klusendorf, President of the Pro-Life Training institute, will present the biblical worldview that will help us better understand and defend the pro- life position. If you struggle to articulate why you’re pro-life, or if you’re not sure where you stand on certain situations like rape or incest, you’ll find this program to be immensely helpful. I’d invite you to stay tuned for this episode of Stand in the Gap Weekend we’ve titled, “In Defense of Life”.

Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib-A 'Squad’ or ‘Sleeper Cell?’

August 4, 2019 • August 4, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, IQ al-Rassooli

Congresswomen-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib, also known as ‘the Squad', have sparked numerous controversies with their anti-Trump, anti-Israel, and anti-American comments. Are these just their personal opinions or is there something more sinister at play? While it may seem that all the drama is just that, there are those who understand that the leftist, globalist, Marxist, and Islamic agenda is on the move-with its end goal to erase freedom and democracy as we know it here in the West. Our guest on this program is one of those people whose keen insights are helpful as we digest all that’s happening nationally and around the world. IQ al-Rassooli, former Muslim Imam, is going to tie it all together on this episode of Stand in the Gap Weekend.

Healthcare Freedom Update

July 28, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, Twila Brase

Did you know that the HIPAA forms you usually sign at the doctor’s office don’t protect your privacy at all? In fact, it’s just the opposite. What you’re signing is your consent that you’ve been notified of the hospital or clinic’s privacy guidelines-a form you usually don’t take the time to read. In all actuality, the HIPAA laws are permissive, giving 2.2 million entities, plus government access to your medical records without your consent. Twila Brase, President and Founder of Citizen's Council for Health Freedom, is going to give us a healthcare freedom update from the perspective of an organization who’s dedicated to “protecting health care choices, individualized patient care and medical and genetic privacy rights.” Healthcare is at the top of the list when it comes to debatable issues in the 2020 Presidential election, and while it seems there are few answers to this dilemma we find ourselves in, this program will point you in the right direction and offer some real solutions and alternatives for us to pursue and inform our legislators and healthcare practitioners about.

Middle East Update

July 21, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Dave Kistler, Dr. Gary Dull, Dr. Jimmy DeYoung

The Psalms of Ascent, which consist of Psalms 120-134, were songs sung by worshipers as they made their way to Jerusalem for the annual feasts. The road they traveled was known as the Pilgrim road, and the recent rediscovery of this road in Israel, buried under a Palestinian village, caused quite a stir among those who contest that the Jews have no claim to Jerusalem and the surrounding areas. This program gives an update on the latest happenings in Israel and the Middle East with guest, Dr. Jimmy DeYoung, host of Prophecy Today. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-hosts: Dr. Gary Dull, Dave Kistler Guest: Dr. Jimmy DeYoung

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. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull

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
