Colin Gunn is an award winning writer, director, producer and an accomplished animator. His is a home school father of 7 children who produced a documentary field trip of a lifetime. Colin and his family travel across America in an old yellow school bus exploring the origins and social impact of public school education.

Some people believe that the infiltration of ungodly philosophies in American education began with President Obama while others believe it began in the 1950’s or 1960’s. Colin, however, believes it began to occur already back in the 1800’s when there were individuals like Robert Owen and Horace Mann who desired a new type of utopian society. These individuals believed that man could be prefected through education and the result is that now we have this massive compulsory education system that is failing.

Colin communicated that parents have abdicated their duty to make sure their children are being instructed properly. Instead parents have become unwittingly trusting toward the systems that are cheating them.

When you consider that nearly 90% of Christian children in the U.S. attend public schools, this subject is a critical one as it pertains to America’s future.

​Guest: Ed Hindson

Dr. Ed Hindson is a distinguished Professor of Religion and Dean of the Institute of Biblical Studies at Liberty University. He’s authored a number of books including: Global Warning, Popular Encyclopedia of Apologetics and the Zondervan King James Bible Commentary. Dr. Hindson is also a Bible prophecy speaker and host of the King is Coming telecast.

Dr. Hindson was the speaker at a VCY Rally in October of 2009 and this broadcast features portions of his presentation.

Dr. Hindson describes how Bible prophecy is not written to scare us, but to prepare us; so that we will be ready when the Lord returns. It’s not written to frighten us, but to invite us to give our lives to Christ while there’s time and hope.

His first main point of emphasis was on the idea that time is running out for the world. He pointed to a recent gathering of world leaders; a gathering designed to bring about solutions to the problems of the world. The problems, however, still remain.

From there Dr. Hindson goes to the Word of God, laying more groundwork for the importance of prophecy. He looks at the 16th chapter of Matthew and explains how Jesus challenged the Pharisees and Sadducees who had missed all 109 of the first prophecies concerning his first coming. He then contrasts that text with Luke 21 which describes the signs of the second coming; signs that challenge us as believers today to be ready.

In light of all this he warns how we should watch out for false predictions as he cites numerous examples from the last century. Even today he describes how the New Agers have a prediction, supposedly based upon the Mayan calendar, that on December 21, 2012, the world will either end or we will have the dawning of a great new age.

Dr. Hindson believes we are close to the end of the age. Here are several points he uses to defend his position:

--Israel must be back in their Promised Land. They have been for 60 years.
--Tension in the Middle East; particularly against Israel.
--The failures of worldwide peace attempts.
--The threat of nuclear weapons.

While some children head off to summer camp to have their Christian worldview enhanced, other kids end up attending camps that emphasize a secular or humanist worldview. Children's television program host Bill Nye has even chastised parents for teaching Creation to children. Some individuals have even gone so far as to compare the teaching of Creation to child abuse.

In an effort to strengthen the Christian worldview of children, Crosstalk welcomed Craig Froman to Crosstalk. Craig is a curriculum writer as well as assistant editor at New Leaf Publishing Group. He is author of 'Passport to the World' produced by Master Books, the recently released, 'The Children's Atlas of God's World' as well as a contributing editor for 'The Big Book of Earth and Sky'.

'The Big Book of Earth and Sky' is basically a 15 foot chart that looks at the earth from its inner core to its outer atmosphere as it examines the ocean zones, the Flood, the resulting fossil layers, the fastest bird, caves and cave creatures, how coal is formed, volcanoes, tornadoes and much more. This book brings the Bible and science together in a fun and fascinating way that testifies to the glory of God.

While 'The Children's Atlas of God's World' concentrates on 22 countries, it gives interesting insights into Christian history such as how every country has a Christian heritage. Craig proved this by explaining how this is true even in Saudi Arabia where it's believed that one of the first Christian church buildings has been found. You'll also learn about God's design for the ecosystem, the unfolding of great civilizations, Christian explorers, the wonders of earth's 7 continents such as the longest rivers, the tallest mountains and more.

More Information

'The Big Book of Earth and Sky' and 'The Children's Atlas of God's World' can be obtained for a donation of $22 each to Crosstalk (includes postage) or you can obtain both for a donation of $39. Call 1-800-729-9829.

Today more than ever we seem to be bombarded with individuals who are intentionally attempting to get people to believe lies regarding Christianity, our Lord and Savior and His word, the Bible.

One example is Reverend John Shuck, who ministers at Southminster Presbyterian Church in Beaverton, Oregon. Reverend Shuck claims he doesn't believe in God yet defends his 'Christianity.' He also claims that the Bible is a human product and that while Jesus may have been a historical figure, most of what we know about him is legend. To Reverend Shuck, God is a symbol of myth-making and isn't credible as a supernatural being or force.

This is just one example that Vic presented of people today who, while standing in their pulpits wearing their religious garb, propose ideas that have nothing to do with the Bible.

The result? A survey of more than 4,000 adults shows that Americans are conflicted regarding Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. The survey showed that the idea that Jesus is God just doesn't register well with 'millennials' (those born between 1984 and 2002). 

This edition of Crosstalk also mentioned a new Bible that replaces the name of God with that of rap star Kanye West, Vic retells the story of The Modernist Preacher Entering Hell and callers share their comments as well.

Guest: Mike  Gendron

For over 30 years Mike Gendron was a devout Roman Catholic and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church. He followed the priests, the sacraments and was depending upon his own good works for salvation. However, in 1981 after attending an apologetics seminar called, 'Evidence for the Christian Faith' the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. As he searched the Scriptures he was amazed to see how often the Bible contradicts the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. Mike placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. He founded a ministry, Proclaiming the Gospel that points people to Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior.

The document known as Evangelicals and Catholics Together (ECT) was signed by various prominent Catholics and Evangelicals just over 20 years ago. It was touted as the most significant development in Protestant and Catholic relations since the dawn of the Reformation.

ECT came about due to the persecution of Protestant missionaries in Latin America who were leading Roman Catholics out of bondage and deception along with the political power the Catholic church was using to suppress such evangelistic efforts.

In response, Chuck Colson and bishops in Latin America initiated a unity accord in order to stop the mass exodus of Catholics that were leaving to join various Protestant sects. To quote the accord: ' condemned the practice of recruiting people from another community for the purpose of denominational aggrandizement.' Unfortunately, this one condemnation put the largest mission field (Roman Catholics) off limits to reception of the Gospel.

The ECT document contains a Statement of Common Faith talking about the inspiration and infallibility of Scripture; it identifies Christ as the one sent by God to be Lord and Savior of all; it affirms the Apostles' Creed and it even affirms that we are justified by grace through faith because of Christ.

What difficulty could anyone have with that? Mike showed that the problem lies not so much with what's in the Statement of Common Faith but rather what's left out. It's one important word: 'Alone.' Catholics do believe they are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, however, they also add Mary and the Church. In other words, it's grace plus merit and Scripture plus tradition that saves them.

Subsequent accords have come out such as the Manhattan Declaration in 2009, a document that has signatures of over 600,000 Evangelicals. Fortunately some of the signers are having second thoughts and are asking to have their names removed. Christians need to watch out for such efforts because we live in times of great deception.
