Arrested for Singing?

October 11, 2020 • Isaac Crockett, Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Gabriel Rench

On September 25th, just two weeks ago, people across the nation watched the spectacle of members from Christ Church in Moscow, Idaho arrested by local law enforcement. Their crime? Not wearing a mask or socially distancing from a crowd of about 100 people calmly worshiping God. This Psalm sing by the members of Christ Church was a protest against the overreach of Moscow’s mayor who extended the mask mandate and social distancing directives until January 5th, 2021- despite the fact that there hasn’t been a single death or hospitalization from the Coronavirus in the entire county where Moscow is located since the beginning of the pandemic. While this occurrence isn’t the only instance of local and state government overreach on COVID policies that infringe on our first amendment rights, it seems believers and churches across the nation are struggling to understand what legitimate or illegitimate authority is. Who has the right to tell people they can’t assemble and sing in public-especially when other groups are allowed to violently loot and burn private and public property? What’s behind the hypocritical behavior of governors, mayors, and political leaders whose motto is “do as I say, not as I do”. If we were being honest, we’d have to say it’s the fast track to tyranny for our country-and it doesn’t seem like an end is in sight. On this program you'll hear from Gabriel Rench, who was an eye witness of the event in Moscow. Host: Isaac Crockett Co-hosts: Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull Guest: Gabriel Rench

Trump, the 2020 Election, and the Changed Christian Vote

November 29, 2020 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, George Barna

In a stunning election outcome, now over three weeks ago, Republicans delivered victories of every House seat up for grabs, plus maintained their majority in the Senate. Instead of a blue wave, a red tsunami took over all but the presidency at this point. While we’re still waiting for the outcome of the Whitehouse race, I’m here to encourage conservatives to continue praying and waiting on God to see what He’ll do! On today’s program, we’re going to air an interview we had with George Barna, founder of the original Barna group and current Professor at Arizona Christian University. As the Director of the Cultural Research Center there on the university campus, his group recently released a new survey we want to examine in light of the recent election. The title of the study was “President Trump Will Get Overwhelming Support from Conservative Christians in 2020 – But for Different Reasons than in 2016.” What are those “different reasons” and did they make an impact in this year’s election? That's what guest, George Barna, will be talking about on this program. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Gary Dull Guest: George Barna

Living Out Your True Identity: Lessons from the Book of Daniel

November 22, 2020 • Isaac Crockett, Sam Rohrer, Joe Green, Matt Recker

**This weekend program is a rerun from Sept. 13 In an article by Samuel James titled, “Courage Takes More than a Keyboard: Christian Nerve in a Digital Age”, he writes, “It’s never been easier to fool ourselves that we are courageous when we really are not. Like the donkey who donned a lion skin to look like Aslan, or the “wizard” of Oz who was really just an old man with a machine, the image we project on our screens can be little more than self-aggrandizement. If our online audience could peek through the phone or laptop we hold, they would see the real us, and our “platform” would be laughed at rather than respected.” Perhaps you can identify with this sentiment. It’s much easier to keep people at arm’s length through a twitter or Facebook account than to do the hard work of building relationships shoulder to shoulder or heart to heart. And staying true to our faith may mean defending the truth when it’s unpopular or sharing the gospel when it’s difficult or even dangerous. This program includes some lessons from the book of Daniel, a courageous hero of the faith-who’s story is both timeless and inspiring.

Hope for America's Warriors

November 15, 2020 • Isaac Crockett, Gary Dull, Jeremy Salnecker

In 1980, the America Psychiatric Association added PTSD as a mental health disorder to its widely acclaimed diagnostic manual known as the DSM. Previous generations would’ve recognized this disorder as “shell shock” but the acknowledgement of its far-reaching effects on the brain, body, and mental faculties has only received the attention of the medical community in the last few decades. Did you know it’s estimated that 7.7 million Americans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder known as PTSD. Many of these brave men and women are veterans, first responders, sexual abuse survivors and others who’ve experienced event related trauma and stress. On this program, we talk with a military vet who experienced his own struggle with PTSD and eventually co-founded a ministry to help others like him called The Mighty Oaks Foundation. If you know someone suffering with this disorder, or would like to know how to help people who’ve survived a traumatic event in their lives, you’ll want to listen to this Stand in the Gap Weekend program!
