​Bodie Hodge is a speaker, author and researcher at Answers in Genesis and is a member of the editorial review board. He's been involved with many books and DVD's and is a regular speaker in the Creation Museum Speaker Series. This Crosstalk looks at Bodie's book, 'World Religions and Cults: Moralistic, Mythical and Mysticism Religions' Volume 2.


As Bodie made clear, there's only 2 religions in the world—God's and not God's. All other religions take man's ideas to supersede God and his word. So did Bodie appear on Crosstalk to spew hate against other religions? After all, 'hate' is the word that seems to get thrown around these days if you even question any other religion.


Bodie responded by saying he wanted to defend God and the authority of his word. In fact, he believes that when someone says not to attack other religions, that's an attack on Christianity. Why? It's because God tells us to demolish false arguments always keeping in mind that people are not the enemy.


In the first volume, Bodie hit the counterfeits of Christianity; those belief systems that look, act or are very similar to Christianity. This would include groups like the Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons.


This new volume looks at Eastern mysticism religions like Hinduism and Taoism, where the adherents see everything as being an illusion; all is spiritual and there's nothing material. Discussion also included the New Age Movement, paganism, vitality cults, meditation and Yoga and Sikhism.


An interesting element to the program included mention of the resurgence of Mythology. This included Germanic/Norse Mythology, Greek Mythology and Latin American Mythology (sometimes blended with Roman Catholicism).


Bodie noted that for each one of these philosophies, their ultimate 'god' or creator is impersonal. God communicated to mankind because we're made in his image and he is a personal God. That's why we can read a revelation from God and understand it. Since the god of Eastern religions is impersonal, communication is impossible. This means that any of their supposed ultimate gods cannot reveal anything about that religion to mankind. So anything that any Eastern religion claims to know about their religion is purely arbitrary and is simply from the mind of man.

John is a counter-terrorism expert who both created and implemented the FBI's first counter-terrorism training/education program. He is a former FBI agent that was assigned to the counter-terrorism division in Washington, DC. John is the author of 'Raising a Jihadi Generation: Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in America' and the co-author of 'Shariah: The Threat to America'.


The Obama administration has told us that the Orlando massacre had nothing to do with Islam, the media seems to be trying to make the public believe that it had to do with inadequate gun control and others believe it had to do with alleged anti-gay rhetoric and legislation that's been introduced in state legislatures.


John described this as nonsense. He believes that when such incidents occur, there's a Socialist/Marxist machine that is married to the jihadis here in the U.S. and Europe. The evidence we have is that this is a willfully constructed movement that parallels and supports the jihadi movement and the goal is to de-arm as well as to silence us.


Also of great concern to John is a situation where you have a Ranking Member of Homeland Security (Senator Tom Carper) and you don't know the motive of the Orlando shooter more than a week after the incident when it's clear he's a Muslim waging jihad. John believes that's professional negligence and incompetence.


Jim mentioned a new report by a Homeland Security advisory council recommending that all government agencies need to reject religious terminology such as 'jihad' and 'Shariah'; language that frames the discussion as 'us' vs. 'them'.


John then asked who makes up that advisory committee? How many are leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas? John said he knows of at least five. In other words, we have a situation where our enemies are providing us information on how to wage the war.


Could it be that the Muslim Brotherhood actually controls national security decisions in America? How can that be the case since the Council on American/Islamic Relations (CAIR) says they are shocked by the Orlando rampage?


Discover the truth as John Guandolo helps listeners see through the cover of political correctness on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

​Mat Staver is Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, a nonprofit litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious liberty, the sanctity of human life, and the family. Mat has over 230 published legal opinions. He has authored eight scholarly law review publications and 10 books including, “Faith & Freedom: A Complete Handbook for Defending Your Religious Rights”, “Same-Sex Marriage: Putting Every Household at Risk” and “Eternal Vigilance: Knowing and Protecting Your Religious Freedom”.


It was one year ago, June 26th that the United States Supreme Court issued what was called a landmark decision in a case known as Obergefell vs. Hodges. 5 of the members of the court said that the United States Constitution guarantees the fundamental right to marry to same sex couples by both the Due Process Clause and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment. The decision they rendered has thrown our nation into a tailspin.


Mat says the action of the court is an attack on God, because marriage was created by God.


Alfred Kinsey in his sexual studies and writings had the goal to remove all restrictions on sexual activity, and ultimately destroy marriage itself. The logical conclusion would be to also abolish God. It was done on purpose.


But Mat says that a tiny portion of the population, less that 3% with the most generous estimates, are demanding to change the social structure of society. And just five justices ruled that they could do so.


There are those who say "It's over. The court has ruled. It's now the law. Get over it." But Mat says no matter what the court says, marriage cannot be anything else except the natural created order of man and woman, any more than a government can legislate away the law of gravity. It is impossible to "move on", because a big result in the past year has been increasing attacks on those who stand on the biblical grounds for marriage, who are now seen as obstructing the accomplishment of the goals of the same-sex marriage proponents. Fines, jail time, attacks on judges and others who make decisions, banning of help for those wishing to escape same-sex attractions, and much more have increased, and Mat says this will increase in the future.


Much of this was predicted in Mat Staver's book,“Same-Sex Marriage: Putting Every Household at Risk”, which was published several years ago. There are serious moves to remove the licenses of counselors who seek to help people seeking help in this area, to remove the law licenses of attorneys arguing against the same-sex agenda, and Mat predicts that moves against churches will accelerate to the point of removing tax-exempt status and arresting pastors who preach the biblical truth about homosexuality.


Other developments have included the administration directing all public schools in the nation to permit homosexuals and transgender individuals to use the rest rooms where they identify. Target stores have opened their rest rooms and changing rooms to homosexual and transgender use, with penalties for those who would try to stop it. Already there are multiple reports of sexual molestation of girls in the women's rest rooms by male "transgenders" who turned out to be child molesters. But the stores say they now have the right to use the opposite rest rooms, so "get used to it". And Target is just the first of many stores, other businesses, sports teams and leagues, and other entities are jumping on the bandwagon.


States are now processing legislation to penalize private colleges who "discriminate" against same-sex or transgender people in their rest room/changing room policies by removing them from tuition assistance from the state, also legislation to obliterate objective reality and replace it with subjective reality--whatever you think is so, is so--despite all evidence to the contrary. This turns the rule of law on its head.


The recent shootings of homosexuals in Florida by an admitted Muslim supporter of Isis, as tragic as they were, are now being used to shift the blame to people who oppose same-sex unions. But the history of the shooter shows that for years he has demonstrated his dedication to Islam, to terrorist acts, by his behavior, by his statements, and by his attendance at a mosque that promotes Jihad.


Even the military has not been exempt. All the armed services are moving towards allowing transgender people to serve. The result: a de facto purge of the military as Christians and loyal officers and enlisted personnel who know what the military was like before these changes, are resigning--or are being forced out.


These and many other topics of concern are discussed on this program, including updates on current cases with which Liberty Counsel is involved.

Jim Started the program with the

​Proclamation 5810

Once again we celebrate Father's Day, by tradition the third Sunday in June, a day to honor and salute fathers everywhere for their love and devotion.
As a weary child tumbles into his father's arms, to be lifted up and carried, he feels his father's strength and is content. in that perch he is like a captain, confidently scanning the horizons of his world, secure in the knowledge that his ship will carry him safely through any threatening seas. Children, vulnerable and dependent, desperately need such security, and it has ever been a duty and a joy of fatherhood to offer it.
Being a father requires strength in many ways: above all, it requires character. Raising a family is no easy task, of course, but one of trial, frustration, and disappointment. Great strength and more than a little courage are needed to persevere, to fight discouragement, and to keep working for the family. In that strength, and with God's grace, fathers find the patience to teach, the fortitude to provide, the compassion to comfort, and the mercy to forgive. All of this is to say that they find the strength to love their wives and children selflessly. And it is above all for this wondrous, mysterious love that fathers shower upon their families, and that allows them to ceaselessly put their families' needs first, that we honor fathers with their own special day.
Our gratitude is not limited to Father's Day, but remains constant; indeed, there are not enough days in the year to express it properly. Still, it is fitting that on such a day the American people pause to celebrate all fathers for their loving care for their youngsters. Our Nation can only continue to prosper if our families prosper. Nothing can replace the family's role as prime nurturer and educator of children, and nowhere are our country's shared values more effectively transmitted to future generations.
So let us thank all fathers on this day; but, above all, let us each take this occasion to express our thanks and our affection to our own fathers, whether we can do so in person or in prayer. We are perhaps no longer little children riding on our fathers' shoulders, yet we will forever feel their firm and loving guidance through life's challenges.
Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, in accordance with a joint resolution of the Congress approved April 24, 1972 (36 U.S.C. 142a), do hereby proclaim Sunday, June 19, 1988. as Father's Day. I invite the States and communities and people of the United States to observe that day with appropriate ceremonies as a mark of appreciation and abiding affection for their fathers. I direct government officials to display the flag of the United States on all Federal government buildings, and I urge all Americans to display the flag at their homes and other suitable places on that day.
In Witness Whereof. I have hereunto set my hand this third day of May, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eightyeight, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and twelfth.

RONALD REAGAN

​Sam Rohrer is the president of the American Pastors Network and the Pennsylvania Pastors Network. Sam served for 18 years as a state representative in Pennsylvania. In his role with the American Pastors Network he encourages pastors to boldly preach biblical truth, especially on issues affecting our current society. Sam has recently drafted an action plan, 'Transgender Identity-Not Accepting God's Design'.


Sam is amazed at the speed with which our moral free-fall is taking place, not just in America, but around the world. We're progressing at quantum speed, relative not only to the downward moral spiral but even the forward movement of what he considers to be biblical prophecy worldwide.


Jim noted that America has become a major exporter of immorality through things like LGBT liaisons, ambassadors, as well as funds that have been channeled into promoting the transgender agenda worldwide.


Sam described how the current administration has been leveraging nations for about the past 6 or 7 years as it pertains to federal funds. Leaders of other nations have been told that if they don't put same-sex marriage, homosexuality and abortion into their constitutions, the U.S. will withhold foreign aid.


In the end, Sam believes the U.S. has been the largest promoter of evil, anti-God, immoral actions of literally any nation in the history of the world. This is in opposition to our founders who operated in the fear of God. They understood that God is our creator, which we see in the beginning words of our Declaration of Independence and they understood that God would be our judge and the determiner of the rightness of our actions. That last point is how they ended the Declaration of Independence where they appealed to the Great Judge of the universe to hear the rectitude (the righteousness) of our cause.


Now, unless a school decides to fight it, from Kindergarten on, children are being taught that gender is fluid and can change. According to Sam, children are the target in this because the intent is to take the innocence of our children and make them calloused and to sear their consciences toward the differences between male and female.


Jim also pointed to a new Disney/Pixar movie that has a transgender Stingray character who transitions to become 'Sting Rhonda'. Sam believes this is an arrogant attempt to redefine what God has defined for mankind.


In an attempt to equip people with a response, Sam has developed a free online 'tool kit' available at the website listed below. Once you're on the site, click on the headline that says, 'Free Resources to Help You Understand the Transgender Identity Debate'. That is where you can access a 'white paper'. This is a 10 page document that answers the basic arguments about the transgender issue. This online 'tool kit' also includes a sample 'letter to the editor', one for legislators, one for school board members, a church bulletin insert and a list of action steps that pastors can take.

Guest:  Ron Rhodes

​Listen:   MP3 ​​| Order 


​Ron Rhodes is the president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries, a teaching and resource ministry that specializes in defending Christianity against atheists, agnostics, skeptics, the cults, world religions and any group teaching false doctrine. Ron is the author of over 70 books most of which deal in the area of apologetics. He has also authored some Bible study books. This program discussed his book, '90 Days Through the New Testament in Chronological Order'.


Ron feels there's a great need for people to get back to the Bible. He noted that the reason why so many people don't feel close to the Lord is because they really aren't into God's Word. In response he's been writing books on Bible study to draw people back into Scripture and help them to understand how exciting it can be.


Why a book dealing with the N.T. in chronological fashion? Ron told listeners that the N.T. deals with real people and real events that happened in history. It's not just a book of theology or doctrine so he felt that people might like to cover it in the same order as events actually occurred.


Ron admitted that there is some debate regarding the chronological order of events. The chronology that he presents is mainstream among the very best conservative scholars, namely those who believe the Bible is the Word of God. In other words, the scholarship he used doesn't come from liberal voices that question whether the N.T. was actually written by Matthew, Mark, Luke & John or don't believe in miracles, etc.


This program is jam-packed with interesting facts as Ron covers numerous N.T. related topics and answers some questions as well. For example:


--Over what period of time was the N.T. written?
--A New Testament overview: What is its place in the entirety of Scripture and
how is it broken down?
--What about the differences in the New Testament accounts? Should any of them
be viewed as contradictions?
--Why we can understand the book of Acts as the Acts of the Holy Spirit and not
just the Acts of the Apostles.
--The implications and applications of the Epistles as they pertain to what the
reader will have already learned in both the gospels and the book of Acts.
--How does Ron deal with problem passages in this book?


This Crosstalk covers so much more so if you've been considering reading through the New Testament and have been looking for a 'tour guide', find out if this book is for you when you review this broadcast.
