This Crosstalk captured part of a presentation by Sam Rohrer, president of the American Pastors Network, as he spoke at a VCY America rally in March of this year. Headquartered in Pennsylvania, the American Pastors Network identifies, encourages, equips, educates and networks with pastors and church members to stand in the gap for truth.

Sam taught that there will be an individual judgment for every word said and every deed done. But there have been national judgments as well. In fact, most of God's warnings and promises given in Scripture are national in context. Since nations cannot be judged in the hereafter, God does it in the here and now. This is why we must be concerned about government.

Teaching about civil government and the relationship of the Christian to it is not a matter of politics but a matter of teaching a biblical worldview and the understanding of how God has put his plan into effect for the nations. God's plan for the ages is that he works through nations to point people to Christ by understanding his earthly authority which points to him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Israel was established as a model for the nations both then and now. God made a covenant with Israel so some promises apply to them and only them, not to us or any other nation. In our case, America's founders made a covenant with God that they would build this nation on biblical principles with the understanding that those principles applied generally to any nation. However, they also knew that the framework of government they were establishing would only work if the citizens and those involved in government were submissive to the 10 Commandments and walked in the fear of the Lord.

In essence, we started just as Israel did with the understanding that if we obey God, he would bless us. If we forsake him, he would walk away from us.

Starting in Ezekiel 20, Sam reminds listeners about the charges God levied against Israel as they walked away from Him. Those charges are murder and idolatry. The sentence involved making them a disgrace to the heathen nations.

When listening to this broadcast you can't help but see the parallels between the sins of Old Testament Israel and modern day America. We see this not only in the sins we are participating in but also the consequences that are pressing in upon us.

Have we gone too far and is the final curtain about to fall regardless of our response? Find out when you review this sobering edition of Crosstalk.

Jim began by noting that is reporting that there are 300 doctors and 275 abortion clinics that conduct abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and many after 24 weeks. Legislation has been introduced to stop this practice.

Joining Jim to discuss this landmark legislation was Troy Newman. Troy is the President of Operation Rescue, one of the leading pro-life Christian activist organizations in the nation. He has actively worked on behalf of the pre-born for over 20 years and continues as an innovator of ideas to close abortion clinics and garner criminal prosecutions for abortionists from coast to coast. He is the author of two books, 'Their Blood Cries Out!' and the newly released, 'Abortion Free.'

After this current Congress was sworn in, one of the early pieces of legislation to come forth from them was H.R. 36, The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. It says a baby has pain receptors and therefore can feel pain. This is a unique individual and that based upon this, after 20 weeks in the womb, the government has an interest in protecting that human being.

What are the common methods utilized by abortionists? Is there a difference between what ISIS does and the abortion industry? Is H.R. 36 and its included exceptions unbiblical even though if passed, it will save some pre-born infants? These and other questions and concerns are dealt with on this important Crosstalk broadcast.

Guest: Marty Zide

Listen: MP3 | Order

Marty Zide is the director of the Midwest Messianic Center. As a Jew he placed his trust in Jesus as his Messiah in December of 1971.

Marty grew up in a reformed Jewish home. He compared reformed Judaism to the Sadducees of Christ's day who were the liberal sect of Judaism. He went to temple two days a year with his parents not attending at all because of their work. They did, however, celebrate Passover and Hanukkah.

In April 1971 Marty received his orders to report for service in the Army Reserves and participated for 4 months in active duty in Kentucky. At the same time, his two close friends, one Gentile and one Jewish, went to California for the summer and ended up becoming followers of Christ.

The plan was that when they came back from California and he left the Reserves, the three of them were going to move to Columbia, Missouri, go to school and rent an apartment. That's exactly what happened. As Marty soon found out, living with two new Christian believers meant he'd become a target as he admitted to being pummeled with the gospel.

Marty's attention was drawn to the changes that were taking place in the lives of his two friends. When questioned, they would point to the fact that they were followers of Jesus so they just didn't do certain things anymore.

This lead Marty to begin reading the Bible beginning with Matthew. He discovered that the picture of Jesus he had in his mind was very different from the one described in the Bible. That brought about conviction and the eventual understanding of his need for Jesus as the Messiah in December of '71.

Review this Crosstalk and find out how you can benefit from Marty's experience. You'll hear about effective portions from Scripture that can be shared and other tips so you can communicate the marvelous love of Christ to Jewish people that God places in your life.

Guest: Dr. Den Trumbull

Listen: MP3 | Order

Dr. Den Trumbull is president of the American College of Pediatricians. He is also a founding member and fellow of the organization. Dr. Trumbull is board certified in pediatrics with special interest in behavioral pediatrics. He has written and spoken nationally on the topic of parenting. He is also a member of the Christian Medical & Dental Society.

Last month on the 28th, Supreme Court justices began hearing oral arguments on the issue of marriage. For example, can states say that marriage is between one man and one woman? Does a state have to recognize a same-sex marriage from another state? A decision in this matter is expected by the end of June.

When questioned as to why pediatricians are weighing in on marriage, Dr. Trumbull's response was that family is the best medicine. It's crucial to the optimal development of a child. His organization aims to present the science behind the benefits of the family.

When his organization looked at the American Academy of Pediatric's decision to advocate and support homosexual adoption, they didn't find convincing research that defended the position that children in same-sex families fare equally as well as those raised by heterosexual, biological parents. So the reason that the American College of Pediatricians filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court case was to encourage the court to consider the well-being of children by looking more closely at the research and discover what they did; that the research is limited and indicates that children raised by same-sex couples do fare worse than those raised by heterosexual, biological parents.

In what ways are children at a deficit when being raised by same-sex couples? Dr. Trumbull noted the following:

--Lower general happiness as measured on a scale that social scientists use.
--Greater incidence of depression and anxiety.
--Greater incidence of sexual abuse within the home.
--Greater incidence of sexual promiscuity.
--More sexual advances by a parent.
--More substance abuse.
--More mental illness.
--More suicidal tendencies
--Shortened lifespans.
