​Dr. David Brown is pastor of First Baptist Church of Oak Creek, WI. He holds a masters degree in theology and a Ph.D. in history, specializing in the history of the English Bible. He is the president of the King James Bible Research Council, an organization dedicated to promoting the King James Bible and its underlying texts. He is also the president of Logos Communication Consortium, a research organization that produces a large variety of materials warning Christians of present dangers in our culture. Dr. Brown is also on the board of directors of the Center for Research & Preservation of the Majority Texts.


2 Timothy 3:16 is the Bible verse that covers the inspiration of the Bible (God breathed out his words) while 2 Peter 1:21 covers the fact that God's Word is not man's ideas. The Holy Ghost carried the writers along to write out exactly what God had breathed out, in their own style. In other words, we have the words of God in our Bible today.


Dr. Brown noted that while we don't have original manuscript evidence for the Bible, we have copies of those originals. In fact, there are thousands of examples of Greek manuscript evidence to support the accuracy of the Bible. He cited one in particular known as the Magdalene Fragment that dates back to about 70 AD. It agrees with the text of the King James Version of the Bible.


The Bible was written over a period of about 1,500 years. It began with God's revelation to Moses on Mount Sinai. The Old Testament is testified to in the scroll of Isaiah. Regarding the Jews who preserved the Old Testament, they were so meticulous in their efforts, they couldn't write anything from memory. Dr. Brown described the process beginning with a reading scribe, a writing scribe and a checking scribe.


By the end of the 1st century or the beginning of the 2nd century, the books of the New Testament were collected into one volume. Dr. Brown believes by that time the church recognized what was God's Word and what wasn't. Writings that fit the latter category include the Gnostic Gospels.


Dr. Brown mentioned how the term 'canon' means 'reed or measuring rod' but came to mean 'a rule of faith'. In light of that, what should we make of the Apocrypha? Why isn't that part of the canon of the Bible? There are no Hebrew manuscripts of the Apocrypha. So while it was added in, in the 1400's the Westminster fathers indicated that although they felt it was good for historical purposes, it was not to be taken as Scripture.


As part one moved along, Jim had Dr. Brown discuss the following:


--Since we don't have the original manuscripts, which copies can we depend upon?
--How did the Bible move from the Hebrew to the Latin Vulgate?
--Why did the Roman church prevent people from reading the Bible on their own?
--What men did God use to break this grip of church control?
--Who was Richard Hunne?

​Soeren Kern is a distinguished senior fellow of the Gatestone Institute, a non-partisan, not-for-profit international policy council and think tank dedicated to educating the public about the Institutions of Democracy and the Rule of Law, Human Rights, a free and strong economy, a military capable of ensuring peace at home and in the free world, energy independence and ensuring the public stay informed of threats to our individual liberty, sovereignty and free speech. Soeren is also a senior analyst for Transatlantic relations at the Strategic Studies Group. He specializes in European politics as well as U.S. and European defense and security related issues. He is a regular commentator about European politics and transatlantic relations. He is a dual citizen of the United States and Germany.


According to Soeren, until 1975 Spain was under a dictatorship and General Franco was aligned closely with the Roman Catholic Church. Since that time there has been an attempt by socialists and left leaning political factions to remove all traces of Roman Catholicism. One of the ways this has been attempted has been to open the door to other non-Catholic religions such as Islam.


In order to help this effort along, a curriculum has been drafted by the Council of Islamic Affairs in Spain. The guidelines are not really about comparative religion or the history of religion, it's actually about apologetics or defense of Islam.


Soeren went on to note that this problem isn't restricted to Spain. Germany, Belgium and France are also seeing efforts to 'mainstream' Islam and create the impression that Islam is not a Middle Eastern religion but instead a European one. This is happening because most European nations are secular. They believe in the equality of religions therefore they merely view Islam as an alternative to Christianity.


Indoctrination begins at age 3 where youngsters are taught the Islamic statement of faith. This is troubling because in the Islamic faith, if you repeat that statement 3 times before a witness, you become a Muslim. Complicating matters is the fact that once you're in Islam, it's difficult to get out.

​Many current news stories were highlighted--here are just a few of them:


In Middle-east news:


The Times of Israel reports that Iran is now saying they have the ability to destroy Israel in less than eight minutes. They are testing missiles, tests that are not forbidden by the Iran agreement, but are inconsistent with a UN Security Council resolution,


Iran is also renewing support for the the Palestinian terrorist group, Islamic Jihad in Gaza, as they work to strengthen their fight against Israel.


A Lebanese newspaper reports that Hezbollah celebrated the anniversary of Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon by announcing that they are building tunnels into Israel, and claiming that they taught Hamas to do the same along the Gaza-Israel border.


Here are just a few of many stories about promoting and requiring accommodation of transgenders in stores, schools, and elsewhere:


Eleven states are now filing suit against the directive by the Education and Justice Departments giving "guidance" to all public schools to open their rest rooms and dressing rooms for the use of students based on their gender identity, not their physical sex. The states include Texas, Alabama, Wisconsin, West Virginia, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Utah, and Georgia, plus Arizona's Department of Education and Main Governor Paul LePage.


43 Republican members of Congress joined Democrats to vote for Barack Obama's trans-gender agenda, ratifying an executive order barring contractors who "discriminate" against sexual identity, even in their private employment policies.


Southern Poverty and Law Center complained to the Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) of the State of Alabama about Chief Justice Roy Moore, and now former Legal Director of the SPLC has been Hired by the JIC to prosecute Moore.


It is now reported by Lifesite News that in addition to the bathroom regulations in the "guidance" for accommodating transgender students in all public school, another provision states that during such activities as field trips that include overnight stays, school districts must allow biological males and females to stay together in the same hotel room, and if they alert the young women or their parents in advance, they risk a federal lawsuit.


Target Stores are now suing a man who protected a girl who was being stabbed at a store in Pennsylvania. Her attacker was convicted of criminal assault, but Target now charges that the man, who was hailed at the time as a hero who likely saved her life, acted irresponsibly.


Girl Scouts of NE New York will now allow trans-gender members.


The governor of Oregon, Keith Brown, who is openly bi-sexual, has encouraged people to speak out positively in bi-sexual language.


A fifth-grade teacher in Oregon has won a 60,000 payout after suing for being called a "lady", rather than masculine terms she preferred, and says she now feels "safe".


In a surprising development, an organization of professionals, including psychologists and medical doctors, has expressed concern that young people self-diagnose as transgender are being affirmed by mental health professionals with little exploration of the reason for that belief, which is often encouraged and facilitated by online websites.


Sioux Falls, SD has dropped plans to add transgender "protection" to their city code after learning of its likely consequences.


Pro-life and abortion related stories include:


The Houston district attorney, who was supposed to be investigating Planned Parenthood for violating Texas laws prohibiting the purchase or sale of baby parts from aborted babies, actually shared confidential information with PP, and then moved to indict David Daleiden, who helped expose Planned Parenthood's illegal activity on video.


The Republican governor of Oklahoma, who recently vetoed a bill to protect the lives of the unborn, which is against the Republican platform, has now been appointed to be co-chair of the party's platform committee.


A "911" call from an abortion clinic in Phoenix, Arizona state that the "problem" is that an aborted baby was still breathing and they could not care for it. Meanwhile a Florida Planned Parenthood abortion business was evacuated, and seven people were taken to a hospital for medical evaluation, as hazmat teams checked out an "unknown substance", which turned out to be baby food.


The South Carolina governor has signed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks.


The Illinois legislature has passed a bill to require every doctor, pharmacist, and pregnancy center to promote abortion if they will not participate themselves, by allowing only three courses of action: "refer" the patient to another provider, "transfer" the patient to another provider, or provide a list of "other health providers"---meaning providers who would perform the abortion services. This would force those in the pro-life medical community to choose between violating state law, and violating deeply held religious conscience.


Democrats in the House of Representations want to amend the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act to ensure religious exemptions cannot be applied to any health care services, including abortion and gender transition treatments.


Some other news stories include:


When East Liverpool High School in Ohio bowed to a threat from the Freedom From Religion Foundation and banned a prayer song, the student body responded as the Valedictorian led in the Lord's Prayer followed by applause, and the school decided it needed to reconsider its policy.


Donald Trump has reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for President.


The Louisiana governor has signed a "Blue Lives Matter" bill, which expands the state's hate crime law to include police officers and first responders.


China and Russia are ramping up military activity, with China sending nuclear-armed submarines to patrol the Pacific, and Russia and China both increasing the number of long-range warplanes put on missions as far as the California coast.

Guest:  Alex Newman

​Alex Newman is an international freelance journalist, educator and consultant. He has a degree in journalism from the University of Florida and has worked for numerous publications. He is the co-author of the book “Crimes of the Educators”. Its subtitle is, “How Utopians Are Using Government Schools to Destroy America’s Children”. As a freelance journalist he writes for The New American.


There has been a great deal of concern after a plan to create trans-national agencies that will have authority over national and local laws and regulations, and which essentially will standardize how things are controlled in both the United States and the European Union. Already there are international institutions that operate with the authority of courts, often meeting in secret, that overrule national laws and the rulings of state and national courts, which enable large corporations to get around laws they do not like in a state or country where they operate.


The TTIP, or "Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership", is another step towards international consolidation of power, following the TTP, the "Trans-Pacific Partnership", which was announced last year.


Like many other proposals, the plan appears to be to somehow place the TTIP in operation without the American people knowing what is going on. In fact, it would not be known now had there not been leaks of information from insiders.


Perhaps of most concern in this latest revelation is the plan to eventually merge the United States and the European Union, along the lines of the international trade agreements that have already been negotiated, with the result that the United States will be controlled by these international entities, much as European countries must adhere to the rules of the international European Union. There would be no more national sovereignty.


Even in Europe this has not been accepted universally, and Great Britain is preparing for a referendum on whether to withdraw from the EU. Although the EU has been in operation for many years, support in Europe is very low, though most establishment leaders are giving lip service to the idea. Those in control in the European Union see the TTIP as an opportunity for them to increase and consolidate their power.


The argument is that if everyone is controlled by the same rules, it will simplify legal decisions. But it goes against one of the main reasons for the U.S. Revolution--preserving the right to govern ourselves. Theoretically, if the American people approved an amendment to the Constitution to allow
foreign entities to override American law, it could be done legally. Any other way is an unconstitutional usurpation of power, going against government "of the people, by the people, and for the people".


Even those promoting this program realize that there is rising citizen opposition, and it appears that any action in Congress would be delayed until after the November election, so that our Senators and Representatives would not need to face the voters after they make their positions known. It would be a "lame duck" session of Congress where controversial bills can be passed with little recourse for the voters.


To become in involved, first become educated yourself, then share that information with other citizens. Then move on with letters to the editor, and contacts with legislators.

Guest:  Tom DeWeese

Listen:   MP3 ​​| Order


​Tom DeWeese is President of American Policy Center. He is one of the nation's leading advocates of
individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education
and American sovereignty and independence, and protecting our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights


Many people scoff at any hint of a planned agenda with international implications that is being furthered by passing one piece of legislation at a time.


But Tom DeWeese says that our government is not simply elected local, state, and federal officials, but to a greater extent a huge number of government agencies that are urging those officials to pass packages of legislation to deal with a particular issue, promising




Agenda 21 has been the result of several international meetings--calling it a comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of society. A big part of it is the Social Justice movement, as well as environmentalism and which is responsible for increasing regulations of nearly every part of society--including business, industry, agriculture, education, and even religion.


Issue 1: Global Warming/Climate Change, which has been a large factor in creating a presumed crisis, an "environmental Armageddon", that requires major regulations to protect the planet. Now the government is beginning to move to silence anyone who disagrees with the premise that man is responsible for destroying the planet.


Issue 2: Overpopulation a claim which ignores the fact that the entire population of the world could live in an area the size of Paris, and there are large areas even in eastern states in America, which have few or no residents. But in reality, people are poor and starving, not because of overpopulation, but because of bad government that keeps people from doing what is needed to provide for themselves. Private property has been demonstrated to be the number one means to eliminate poverty, but in many parts of the world private property is prohibited, and the poor are dependent on government day by day just to survive. Even in the United States, huge amounts of government assistance are now going to non-citizens, and the country is going bankrupt. The government even now moving to destroy the family unit, removing the right of parents to raise their own children--or even to have children without obtaining government permission. The goal--to shrink the population of the world to a total of a few hundred million, or perhaps 2 billion, from its current level of about 7 billion.


Issue 3: Destruction of the free enterprise system, which is accused of oppressing people. It is now becoming increasingly difficult to even start a business, let alone run a business in the United States due to government restrictions. Ultimately only a few massive companies, approved by the government, will be everywhere, and regulations will determine what people can eat, can wear, can use, etc. Even the use of water is being restricted--including rainwater, which is no considered to be property of the State. There are now plans to "re-wild" the world, returning populated areas to the kind of pristine wilderness that existed before Columbus arrived in the New World.


Issue 4: The elimination of "cheap energy", which is seen to be the enemy of the earth. It is seen as preferable for poor areas of the world to remain poor rather than develop energy resources like developed nations, as it would hold down carbon dioxide emissions.


Issue 5: Common Core--the complete reorganization of education, which is actually a part of Agenda 21, and which has the goal of creating workers who will be trained only for the skills designated by the government, regardless of their proficiencies, and their desire to learn and be creative. Part of the plan is to condition children and young people to accept this program.


Issue 6: Health care, or "Sustainable Medicine", perfectly demonstrated by Obamacare, with the goal that the government will control health care, so that it will increasingly be rationed so that many will die who could be treated. The late Dr. Madeleine Cosman, put it this way: “Sustainable Medicine + Sustainable Development = Duty to Die". In other words, it is a tool to reduce the population and create a government-controlled population.

​Agenda 21

Posted on May 24th, 2016

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Date:  May 24, 2016

Host:  Jim Schneider  

Guest:  Pat Roy

Listen:   MP3 ​​| Order


​Pat Roy served at the Institute for Creation Research for 12 years and saw the devastating effects of an evolutionary world view on the families of our society. He was the creator of the Jonathan Park Audio Adventures. He has a passion to reach families with the message that we are indeed fearfully made, and now services as Director for Genesis Apologetics and Creation Quest.


Pat says that his passion comes from the description in Romans 1 about what happens when people reject the evidence of the creator in the creation all around us; a description of what is taking place around us in society today.


When talking to students on college campuses, many admit they were raised in a Christian family, were active in church activities, etc. but who now do not attend church, and many admitted they had lost their faith. When asked how long it took them to reject Christianity after starting college, and the time was often only about six months, and the most common reason was the teaching of evolution. And this amounts to the rejection of God described in Romans, and which has devastating consequences.


Now Pat intends to regularly visit college campuses in order to present the evidence that creation is actually more scientific than evolution, when the evidence is examined fairly.


But in public schools today, it is not a question of "if" evolution will be taught, but "when" and how strongly it will be presented. The textbooks are full of evolutionary teachings that are being taught without any other viewpoints being acknowledged. Since teachers are authority figures, and the textbooks are presented as the source of the truth, it is much easier to believe them rather than to challenge what is contrary to the Bible.


These public school Junior and Senior High level textbooks present evolution in about 12 different areas. Pat and his organization have developed a book to debunk evolution point by point in these 12 areas. They also ordered 120,000 wristbands for teens to wear, with the web URL debunkevolution.com printed on them. They then learned that the CEO of the company that filled the order is dedicated to promoting evolution, and because he had helped a creation project, donated part of the profits to an organization that works to promote evolution in the schools! Despite this unusual development, it has opened the door to tell their story and give out the wristbands.
