Restoring the Law - Part 1 • September 20, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

On January 31, 2020 the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services declared a national public health emergency. On March 1, 2020 President Trump declared a federal declaration of emergency citing the potential negative impact of a new virus referred to as COVID-19. Almost immediately every state governor declared their own states of emergency. The result was that the entire nation fell under the umbrella of suspended law. The result has been serious. The condition is a growing lawlessness and major imbalancing of the fragile Constitutional balance of powers. The failure to effectively and quickly rebalance this authority will result in embedded tyranny. A collapse of our republic and a loss of our freedom. It's this desire for clarity, leadership, and a pathway back to freedom that prompted the American Pastors Network leadership team and the PA chapter of APN to respond. Solutions start with asking questions, but the right questions. In this case the right question is, what is the law? What is the authority behind these directives? On August 13, 2020, 12 pastors representing various regions of PA signed an open letter to the citizens of the Commonwealth on behalf of the 1,200 pastors in PA who are voluntarily associated with the American Pastors Network. This letter was accompanied by a detailed resolution. The letter explained why pastors were initiating an analysis and a solution. This letter and resolution together describe the problem, identify the cause and consequences, and present a solution to serve as a national model and template. Not only for action in PA; but as a model for pastors, citizens, and elected officials in other states. You can find the complete open letter and resolution at the website: www.restorethelaw.org Stay tuned as Sam and Isaac consider the important theme, “Restoring the Law”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

The Deceit of Political Correctness: How Marxism is Collapsing America - Part 2 • September 13, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Dr. Marlene McMillan (Author, Speaker) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. The effectiveness of Joseph Hagels and the Marxist Hagelian Dialectic is without dispute. The attack against truth through the use of deception though did not start with Hegels. It started with Satan who masqueraded as one of God’s most beautiful creations in the Garden of Eden when he came to Eve and questioned the authority and justice of God. Eve took the bait because the methodology of questioning God and what is true worked through offering a greed-based desire of wanting to be like God. It worked with Eve and it works with all mankind who lives with no fear of God today. Anyone who has ever worked in engineering, manufacturing, and other vocations involving quality control of any type knows they must regularly recalibrate their thinking, statements, and evaluations to a truth standard. Living life and recalibrating our thinking to the truth of God is our need today.

The Deceit of Political Correctness: How Marxism is Collapsing America - Part 1 • September 6, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Dr. Marlene McMillan (Author, Speaker) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. In the last generation a sea of change has swept over America and the western world. Critical areas such as education, science, politics, history, and even theology have been strategically targeted for change and the agents of change have been successful. Whether the discussion is capitalism or socialism, justice or social justice, rights or duties, Democrat or Republican, etc. It is a matter of values and ideology. It is all about worldview. A Judeo-Christian worldview (the underpinning of freedom, liberty, moral truth, and God as Creator and Judge) is what brought the U.S. and the western world into prominence. But an atheistic or Islamic worldview views the tenets of a Judeo-Christian worldview to be the enemy. The goal driven by their respective worldviews is totalitarianism, control of the people by a few. and where life is not sacred. Because for them there is no God balanced in truth, justice, mercy, and love. The Hagelian Dialectic being described as not just a language, but a methodology springs from this worldview of no creator God or ultimate judge of right or wrong. But instead man is God and the sole determiner of what is right. The difference is enormous. The results are life threatening.

What’s it Mean to be a Christian Citizen? - Part 2 • August 30, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Rev. Dave Welch (President, U.S. Pastor Council) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. One thing we’ve learned from COVID-19 policies is that there’s no event in America history that’s given rise to such confusion, angst, and dislocation of American citizens. Regardless of whether the policies were precipitated by federal, states, or local governments; every citizen’s life has been changed. Every business, church, school, and level of government has been altered. But COVID-19 didn’t create the present confusion and lack of direction. What it did was expose a pre-existent problem. That problem is of a lack of leadership principles, a lack of understanding in any sector to help steer the culture before COVID, and certainly incapable of steering this nation back onto the track of freedom and blessing during COVID policies. That’s not only true in the realm of politics in this postmodern climate, but sadly within the realm of the church which should have the answers but doesn’t. As Christians we are both citizens of a heavenly kingdom and an earthly kingdom. Both walk together. Both have duties and responsibilities. Both offer areas of accountability. Both are part of the purpose of the Church. The focus of this program is going to be on the nature of our citizenship. Join us as we continue to look at the topic “What’s it Mean to be a Christian Citizen?”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

That’s not only true in the realm of politics in this postmodern climate, but sadly within the realm of the church which should have the answers but doesn’t. We are going to focus on why the church and the pulpit are not in any way (other than a limited number of ministries like the American Pastors Network) presenting the Biblical solution. Since the church from the Biblical definition is the collection of individual believers, the question really comes down to what the individual Christian thinks about what it means to be a Christian. If that answer is known the Christian provides direction, is not confused, and can bring clarity from confusion. If that answer is not known then the Christian can be just as confused as the non-Christian. Join us as we look at the topic “What’s it Mean to be a Christian Citizen?”.

When Truth Falls - Health Care Fails: The Lessons of COVID-19 - Part 2 • August 16, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Twila Brase (President and Co-Founder of Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. People are sensing that a lot is wrong with COVID policies. In part because the definitions of terms, recommendations, guidelines, and policies continue to change by the week (if not the day). Like good health which focuses not on symptoms, but the problem. Recognized truth and science in established medical practices of testing, diagnosis, and treatment are being strategically dismantled. Due to the vacillating COVID policies we are watching the destruction of the integrity of health care in America as well as quickening loss of not only health freedom, but civil freedom.

When Truth Falls - Health Care Fails: The Lessons of COVID-19 - Part 1 • August 9, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Twila Brase (President and Co-Founder of Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. As individuals many have walked away from God as the source of moral truth. Our highest institutions of government have redefined God’s definition of moral truth, the 10 Commandments, life, marriage, and human sexuality. They have redefined God’s standard of justice and our Constitution’s definition of rights and duties. In Deuteronomy 30 God commands individuals to follow Biblical commands, embrace truth, and chose life. But He warns that if they turn away, they will perish. People are sensing that a lot is wrong with COVID policies. In part because the definitions of terms, recommendations, guidelines, and policies continue to change by the week (if not the day).

Resisting Tyranny God’s Way - Part 2 • August 2, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Matthew Trewhella (Pastor, Author) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. Lawlessness and tyranny is taking over America. Yet, most citizens and leaders don’t know how to properly respond. Society is groping for a right response, but are not looking to God’s way. If not soon identified and embraced tyranny will rule and freedom will be lost. Across America we’re witnessing the fastest slide into lawlessness our nation’s ever seen where lawlessness and anarchy on our streets is increasingly visible. Less obvious, but perhaps more egregious; lawlessness is exploding at various levels of federal, state, and local government. This is emanating primarily from those in the executive and judicial branches. History’s replete with examples of societies once constrained by law and order collapsing into anarchy followed by tyranny and totalitarian dictatorships. The Bible warns nations that if they reject God’s moral standards for law and justice; they will embrace bribery, corruption, and injustice. Freedom will disappear and bondage will reign. The greatest ally of tyranny are citizens, pastors, and government officials who refuse to confront lawlessness and tyranny in a Biblical and historical way. When God’s rejected, truth redefined, the pulpits gone silent, the enemies active and citizens lethargic there can be no credible effort to stem this fearful slide. In this government and media induced panic we have one of two choices. We’ll either resist tyranny God’s way and defend freedom or we’ll embrace tyranny by choosing to work the system to our own selfish advantage. The dangers of embracing tyranny should be obvious.

Racial Divide or Sinful Pride? - Part II • July 19, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Joe Green (Pastor; Chairman, 400 Year African American History Commission) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. In America these days it is obvious there are racial divisions and divisions of all types. According to Marxist organizations such as Black Lives Matter the pursuit of division and revolution is more important than unity and healing. Political ambitions have seized upon this to exploit personal gain. The church in America (which alone possesses the solution) has struggled with what to say and how to best respond in this wide cultural issue. Ironically the problem is not racism, but prejudice and bias. Not so much actions as attitudes. The cause is not racism, but sinful pride. Join us as we continue to look at the topic “Racial Divide or Sinful Pride?”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Joe Green (Pastor; Chairman, 400 Year African American History Commission) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. The issue of racism in America is not new. Sadly, the reality of racism in the world is historic and ongoing. Lately the extent of the issue we refer to as racism in America has reached new heights or depths depending upon how you consider it. Our nation is confused, perplexed, and without a solution. Why is that? Is there no solution? Are we doomed to only increasing hostility, division, bitterness, and anger in our nation? In this program we want to focus on the issue of racism in a fresh way by defining the terms, describing the root problem, identifying the cause, answering key questions, and providing Biblical solutions. Join us as we look at the topic “Racial Divide or Sinful Pride?”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion - Part II • June 21, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Paul Blair (Pastor, Founder of Liberty Pastors) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. The understanding of authority (moral, civil, military, and spiritual authority) by its very nature is essential for societal order and purpose. No military can function without clear lines of authority. No government can function without clear lines of authority. No family, business, or community can function without having clear lines of authority; with defined duties, responsibilities, and established fences and boundaries. These definitions of what is permissible are called laws and rules. The breaking of these laws and rules demonstrate a stepping over the line or a jumping over the fence. When that happens there is a consequence. The greater the violation, the greater the consequence. The question is not whether a person, community, or nation will encounter laws, rules, or learn an understanding of duties and responsibilities. The question is simply, whose rules and laws? Whose truth? What duties and responsibilities? While the concept of authority is obvious and in reality quite simple; the proper understanding of authority and response to it is profound. It is also the greatest principle missing from American culture, the American pulpit, and the one principle being exploited by those seeking to destroy America and freedom around the world. Join us as we look at the topic “Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion”. In this second of a two-part program we’ll continue looking at authority. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion - Part 1 • June 14, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Paul Blair (Pastor, Founder of Liberty Pastors) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. In this COVID-19 era governments of the world have marched nearly lock step in response to this end times type plague. Through remarkably common policies governments have departed from historic health related protocols, destroying whole economies, and transferring trillions of dollars of wealth. They’ve locked down billions of the world’s population, greased the path for famines, and increased greater government surveillance. All with no real hope for the future. Now we face an unfolding time of increasing rebellion and lawlessness. Governments impose restrictions that limit freedom and impose measures of bondage. In the streets of America demonstrations have become the norm with an attitude of lawlessness and superiority being evidenced toward others. This requires more and more government with greater and greater turmoil. Citizens around the world are in despair, calling out for help, and grasping for hope. Yet, without God government is incapable of offering hope outside more government control. For those who want hope and truly want a solution God has the plan for order and blessing in our nation or any nation. That plan hinges on the understanding of authority. Join us as we look at the topic “Understanding Biblical Authority: God’s Antidote for Rebellion”. In this first of two programs we’ll look at authority. God’s design for order, purpose in society, and God’s design for the citizen and family. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

The Meteoric Rise of Homeschooling in America - Another Unintended Consequence of COVID-19 Policies • May 24, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

Sam Rohrer and Isaac Crockett are joined by guest Mike Smith (President and Co-Founder of Home School Legal Defense Association) to discuss this important topic by going to the heart of the cause and defining the solution. Schools and education have been impacted because of COVID-19. With schools closed, classrooms emptied, greater online instruction for millions, no instruction at all for tens of thousands; school instruction has changed. There’s one approach to schooling that has proceeded forward with no impact and that is homeschooling. Normally in America the number of homeschooled students is over 2 million, but the number now being homeschooled at home are multiple times more that that. With the uncertainty that exists with government health policy experts about a potential 2nd wave in the fall individuals such as Tony Fauci recently said, “Parents should plan on homeschooling this fall”. For millions of parents thrown into the position of having to personally participate in their children’s education at home (most for the very first time) the number of parents now schooling at home has experienced a meteoric rise – an unintended consequence of COVID-19 Policies. How has and will homeschooling be changed ongoing? Has the forced experience of schooling at home permanently impacted government, private, and Christian (brick and mortar) schools? Has the role of parents generally been changed? Has the role of Christian parents been changed? Join us as we look at the topic “The Meteoric Rise of Homeschooling in America - Another Unintended Consequence of COVID-19 Policies”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.

Understanding the Dual Nature of Christian Citizenship • May 17, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Isaac Crockett

One of the greatest needs in our increasingly economically wounded and politically fractured nation is sound moral leadership and citizen duty. The often capricious health policies justified by COVID-19 fears are fueling an increasing division and uncertainty. As one moral and lawful fence after another have been repositioned. The rule of law has become the rules of many. Governors and local law enforcement are becoming arbitrary and belligerent as local county commissioners, business owners, and church leaders demand a return to normalcy in their God given desire to earn a living, worship together, and live a life of freedom. The fear of a total societal collapse stares our nation in the face with totalitarian government as the ‘official solution’. Only a clear pathway forward is essential with a revisiting of first principles hold the key to providing stability and direction. Stay tuned as Sam and Isaac consider the important theme, “Understanding the Dual Nature of Christian Citizenship”. We hope you’ll find the program challenging and informative.
