Alan Gottlieb is the Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. He has authored 20 books including 'Shooting Blanks: Facts Don't Matter to the Gun Ban Crowd', 'Black & Blue: How Obama and the Democrats are Beating Up the Constitution' and 'Assault on Weapons: The Campaign to Eliminate Your Guns'. He is also the publisher of '' and 'The Gottlieb-Tartaro Report'.

Alan informed listeners of yet another attempt to 'put the squeeze' on gun owners and the gun industry. The Department of Justice is said to be working in conjunction with the FDIC, the Federal Trade Commission and other federal agencies to shut down certain types of businesses in what's known as Operation Choke Point.

This operation is being overseen by Attorney General Eric Holder who exercises the arbitrary discretion to interfere with relationships between banks and their clients. The government is issuing Civil Investigative Demands (CID's) that require banks to turn over information regarding business practices, consumer behavior, transaction data and proprietary business information. Alan believes this kind of activity attempts to treat the gun industry like the porn industry or some other illegal enterprise.

This Crosstalk is a recorded message delivered by Mike Gendron who represents a ministry known as Proclaiming the Gospel. Mike addressed an audience at a VCY America rally that took place on September 29, 2012.

Mike described his journey that begins with his younger days as an altar boy, his eventual success in the business world, the material accoutrements that went with that lifestyle and his ties to the Catholic Church through it all.

While Roman Catholicism gave Mike a grounding in the basics of Christianity, there was much about this system that covered, clouded and distorted the truth of God’s plan for mankind through the redeeming work of Christ. Beginning in 1981, the Lord began to work on his heart, showing him the contrasts between Catholicism and the truth of God’s Word and the wonderful assurance of salvation given to all believers (John 10:27-30).

Guest: Erwin Lutzer

Listen: MP3|Order CD

Dr. Erwin Lutzer is the Senior Pastor of the Moody Church in Chicago having served there since 1980. He is an award-winning author of more than 30 books. His latest book is entitled, 'The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent'. It's subtitle is 'An informed response to Islam's war with Christianity.'

Dr. Lutzer discovered something interesting when he went to Asia Minor (Today's nation of Turkey) to visit the seven cities that had churches to whom Jesus dictated letters in the book of Revelation. What he discovered is that there are no visible churches but there are mosques everywhere.

Previous to that he had been in Istanbul. While there, a devout Muslim guide told him that Islam's ability to replace the church is proof of its superiority as a religion.

Dr. Lutzer asked God for wisdom regarding any lessons that these non-existent churches might be communicating to the American church. He feels that within an hour, the Lord had given him 8 or 9 lessons that became the seed for his book.

'The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent' goes beyond the obvious terrorist threat and deals with the intrusion of Islam in America and its efforts to use the freedoms evoked in our Constitution to actually destroy the Constitution.

On this Crosstalk you'll learn about the 'faces' of Islam, the purpose and significance of mosques within Islamic culture, the phenomenon of “Chrislam”, how Luther felt about encroaching Islam and much more.

The book 'The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent' is available for a donation of $17 (includes shipping) or more by calling 1-800-729-9829.

Guest: Bodie Hodge

As Jim noted in his opening comments, how many times have you skipped over the biblical genealogies when studying God's Word? These links do more than just record ancient family chronicles. They reveal the founders for some of the earliest civilizations in history. In fact, there's a direct connection to the Tower of Babel.

Discussing this with Jim was Bodie Hodge, a speaker, writer and researcher with the Answers in Genesis Outreach Department. He's also a regular speaker with the Creation Museum Speaker Series. He has a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering and is the author of numerous books, one of which was discussed on this edition of Crosstalk titled--Tower of Babel: The Cultural History of our Ancestors.

The Tower of Babel is said to have been built after the Flood but before the calling of Abraham. It was constructed in the Plain of Shinar between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in what is modern day Iraq. Herodotus commented on it saying it may have had 7 to 8 levels. In fact, archaeologists think they know where the foundation of the tower was.

While others have commented that the Tower of Babel may have been built for sacrifice, others believe it may have been built for worship of the heavens. Bodie admitted that we don't know the distinct purpose of the tower, but he believes that the builders were engaging in willful disobedience as they opposed God's plan to scatter across the earth.

What's interesting about the Tower of Babel account is the tie-in with biblical genealogies. Bodie noted how the chronological data that accompanies the genealogies helps us tally the age of the earth. From Adam to Abraham we have about 2,000 years. He acknowledged that while there are differences of opinion when you try to figure the span from Abraham to Christ; most scholars, Christian and secular, agree that Abraham lived about 4,000 years ago, about 2,000 years before Christ.

Bodie presented other fascinating facts dealing with this topic as he answered various questions including:

--Is there a connection to race as well as language with the Tower of Babel?

--Was the confusing of the languages by God an instantaneous act or did it
occur over time?

--Were Shem, Ham and Japheth triplets?

--How did the early people groups get to the various continents?

--How do we account for the vast drop-off in lifespan when we compare modern man
to those in the era of Genesis?

--Is the vapor canopy idea that some regard as the source for the Flood rains
biblically and scientifically plausible?

Host: Jim Schneider

Guest: Shahram Hadian

Listen: MP3|Order CD | Order DVD

This edition of Crosstalk featured a recorded message by Shahram Hadian, a former Muslim, now a Christian pastor and recent candidate for Governor of the State of Washington. His message was originally presented at a recent Steeling the Mind Conference put on by Compass International which brings top Christian speakers together to address timely spiritual issues. Shahram travels around the country speaking on critical issues facing us as Americans and has started the Truth in Love Project. He warns of the true goal of Islam and the threat of Shariah.

There are many well-meaning Bible teachers defending a philosophy called Chrislam. Chrislam claims that both the Bible and the Qur'an are divine truth and that Muslims and Christians have a common God and a common Jesus.

Is this concept scriptural? Is this the answer to peace that many are looking for or is it merely an attempt by Islam to remake the spiritual fabric of American society? Find out more when you review this critical edition of Crosstalk.

More Information

Due to time constraints, this Crosstalk does not contain Mr. Hadian's entire message. However, for a limited time we are making copies of the complete message available on CD for a donation of $6 or on DVD for a donation of $12 (including postage). Copies are available by calling VCY America at 1-800-729-9829 or by writing to Crosstalk: 3434 W. Kilbourn Ave., Milwaukee, WI. 53208.
