Dr. Ron Rhodes is president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries. He is a keynote speaker at conferences across the nation. He has authored more than 60 books of which many deal in the realm of apologetics. He joined Jim Schneider to discuss his book, 'What Happens After Life?: 21 Amazing Revelations About Heaven and Hell.'

While it certainly appears from our perspective that medical science is extending the length of life for humans, according to Ron, we are not entitled to a certain length of life. God has predetermined the amount of time we spend on earth. Eventually we come to what Ron described as an appointed time when our life is to end (See Psalm 139:16 and Job 14:5) and that word 'determined' in Hebrew carries the idea of something that is set in stone by God.

Ron encouraged listeners to have a biblical attitude about death by recognizing heaven's perspective. This involves looking at death as a tiny dot in the realm of time. Our time in heaven can be looked at like a line but our life on earth is like a dot; it's relatively short compared to all of eternity. So Ron is trying to help people learn how to live now in view of then. In other words, don't live for the dot, let's live for the line.

Ron talks about believers and heaven, unbelievers and hell; what happens after death to infants, the mentally challenged and those with memory disorders; whether believers will get a resurrected body; why the doctrine of purgatory brings a very weak view to the doctrine of salvation believers have in Christ; the rapture of
the church; the proper context of Hebrews 6:4-6 and much more.

In recent years we've been hearing about the militarization of police departments across our nation as news reports have informed us about equipment being made available to them that in the past was only used by branches of the military. Is such militarization anticipating that things are going to get worse in America? At one time, President Obama felt that such militarization was a good idea. More recently there's been news that House Judiciary Committee meetings on police militarization have begun as lawmakers debate the best way to regulate law enforcement.

The Department of Justice has announced that it will send millions of dollars to various community activist groups to combat urban crime and reduce tensions between racial minorities and police. Could this backfire and actually create more unrest by funding many of the so-called community organizers responsible for fomenting anti-police sentiment in cities across America?

Another headline indicated that sheriff deputies and special operations troops are reportedly teaming up for special exercises in South Carolina. Is this a Posse Comitatus Act violation?

There are those calling for a change in the religious views of some individuals. One of them is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who is seeking an overhaul of religious beliefs, structural biases and cultural codes in order to advance her beliefs regarding birth control, abortion and women's health care.

As we see a federal government communicating as though it desires to have power over our local police departments...as we see an aspiring leader wanting to change the religious views of many...what do you think? Crosstalk callers presented their perspectives on this critical issue of what constitutes government

Today the efforts to 'lower the bar' for entrance into heaven seem to be as numerous as ever. In other words, the theological description of the path that leads to eternal life can end up sounding as though it's as wide and broad as the road that leads to destruction that Jesus describes in Matthew 7:13. In order to be logically consistent, those who appeal to such theology must narrow the definition of the path to hell which is the opposite of what our Savior teaches.

Vic's late father once wrote a poem entitled, 'The Modernist Preacher Entering Hell.' Vic's reading of this poem sets the tone for this broadcast. It's a fitting contrast to the news regarding a promotion from Fuller Theological Seminary as they draw theologians together for the 'Rethinking Hell' conference June 18th-20th.

Why is a doctrine that has been so biblically clear for centuries being challenged in our day? Vic has callers weigh in to present their views on hell as well as the clergy members who are challenging the settled word of God on the matter.

Jay Seegert is the co-founder, executive director and principal lecturer for the Creation Education Center. He holds degrees in physics and engineering and has been lecturing on creation/evolution and the authority of Scripture for over 26 years. He is author of the newly released, 'Creation & Evolution: Compatible or in Conflict?'

Jay was raised in a Christian home having placed his trust in Christ early in grade school. He attended public schools through high school and then moved on to a Christian college in Arkansas where he studied mechanical engineering. His interest changed to physics and since they didn't have a physics major there he came back to Wisconsin to attend UW-Whitewater. This was quite a step, having attended a Christian college where the professors opened each class in prayer to UW-Whitewater where his physics professors not only didn't open each class with prayer, all of them were evolutionists and others were atheists. Being around these professors made Jay uncomfortable but the experience made him realize that he knew what he believed but he didn't know why. God put it on his heart to begin looking into these things so he began gathering evidence and even doing some speaking. Then about 8 years ago Jay felt God was leading him out of his computer programming business and into full-time ministry. He travels around the country speaking on the area of creation education communicating to people that it's all about the authority of Scripture.

On this edition of Crosstalk, Jay comments on the following:

--Who's going to benefit from the book, 'Creation & Evolution: Compatible or in
Conflict?'
--Can you adopt the idea that God used millions of years to create the universe
and therefore make creation and evolution compatible?
--Why it's important to define the terms 'creation' and 'evolution' as they relate
to the idea of change.
--Where did the idea of evolution come from?
--The critical difference between historical and observational/operational
science.
--How the teaching of evolution differs from the teaching of Scripture.
--What does the fossil record show?
--Ernst Haeckel's evolution drawings and other scientific frauds.
--Chimp vs. human DNA.
--The best evidence for creation.
--Old earth vs. young earth.

...and much more.

No one's worldview is formed in a vacuum and that's precisely why parents must be discerning and not simply permissive when it comes to music. This means that just telling our youngsters to 'turn it down' won't cut it. Parents need to know what their children are listening to and why. If what they're listening to doesn't reflect a biblical worldview, it will produce another result. Remember that ideas, even when communicated via music, have consequences. What consequences do you want your children to face?

Vic gave a number of examples demonstrating the power of music and how it can motivate people to do various things and live in certain ways. For example, he discussed Christian music personalities such as Kirk Franklin, James Cleveland, lesbian Marsha Stevens as well as the testimony of George Perdikis. George, a founding member of the Contemporary Christian group Newsboys, now defines himself as an atheist.

Crosstalk callers also communicated their experiences and provided the capstone to this program that should be of interest to all Christian parents.
