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.

Critical Race Theory? How Has it Infiltrated All of Society?
January 17, 2021 • Dr. Joe Green, Sam Rohrer, Dr. Shelby Steele
Trying to understand the words and phrases bandied about in today’s culture is like trying to grasp the explanation of rules for a game written in a 30-page booklet in 10 seconds flat. It’s hard to do. Words like intersectionality, critical race theory, cancel culture, and white privilege can leave one’s head spinning. On today's program our guest, Dr. Shelby Steele, will be explaining one of the phrases you might hear or see on social media-but don’t know very much about. 'Critical race theory' in practical laymen’s terms is the erroneous idea that all of society is built and perpetuated by racism, namely the white vs. black kind. America, according to this ideology, was built on the backs of slaves. Our Founding Fathers didn’t actually come here to create a Constitutional republic where all men were created free and equal-they came to perpetuate slavery and the subjugation of the black man for their own selfish and narrow interests. And America continues to fashion society, government, laws, and education etc. all with a design and intent to discriminate and degrade their black fellow citizens. Well, if you’re a student of history you know this kind of thinking is dangerous and patently false. And as we’ll learn today, it doesn’t help the root cause of the true problems facing black Americans. How did we get to the place in our country where so many are convinced we’re a nation of bigots and racists? Why have billions and maybe even trillions of dollars been spent to alleviate the perceived disparities and inequities, yet crime, poverty, poor education and broken families continue to plague the black culture? We'll explore more on this topic because it’s so very important we understand what’s being said, and how we can truly help our black friends and neighbors.

The 2020 Surveillance State: 2021 Even More Alarming!
January 10, 2021 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Mark Lerner
In George Orwell’s dystopian novel titled 1984, he wrote this about the surveillance state, “You had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.” Unfortunately, we’ve come to the place where surveillance and biometric technology has morphed into a monster that can no longer be kept under control. What am I talking about? It’s the 2020 Surveillance State with 2021 shaping up to be even more alarming. Whether through our cell phones, smart TV’s, or security cameras, Big Brother is watching and listening to us in more ways than one-and it isn’t a comforting thought. Our guest on today’s program, Mark Lerner, has spent the last few decades studying, writing, and speaking about biometrics and surveillance from the standpoint of one who loves liberty and respects the Constitution. During this program he’ll identify how we’re being monitored and learn ways to ensure our own privacy. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Dr. Gary Dull Guest: Mark Lerner
Beyond the Dialectic, the Empowerment of Words.
January 3, 2021 • Sam Rohrer, Dr. Marlene McMillan
On this Stand in the Gap Weekend program, our guest, Dr. Marlene McMillan, will be talking about the power of words which is so appropriate in today’s cultural climate. It’s becoming increasingly difficult to tell the truth without being ostracized, and worse yet, the very definition of words has changed to become a weapon in the hands of those who distort the truth and seek to spread lies. You'll want to hear this in depth analysis of the various terms and definitions being used by the media, so-called experts, and world wide leaders to persuade and communicate information to trusting audiences.
