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.

Guest: Marty Zide

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: Mark Massey

Is your family in crisis? Are the relationships you have with your children perhaps not what they should be? Are you concerned about a child that is making wrong decisions? Is rebellion by one or more children an issue and creating stress? The Bible tells us to bring up our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord but how do we go about doing that? What if our kids just won't listen?


If one or more of these questions describes your household, this Crosstalk provided some answers as it presented Mark Massey as the guest. Mark is the director of Victory Academy for Boys, a group of God-loving, discipleship professionals dedicated to strengthening families in crisis with the truths of Scripture.


Is there hope for the home going through crisis? Mark believes there is via accountability with godly people and keeping yourself immersed in the truths of God's Word.


Mark noted that the pressures that teens are experiencing are the same as they've always been but they come out in peculiar ways within the context of the current culture. For example, he sees today's teens struggling with the reality of God yet they are greatly affected by the influence and impact of the media, particularly through the gateway of the Internet. This forms the view of reality for young people and where God fits. That's important because for the young person God doesn't generally fit in the movies, social media or the sexual struggles. In the end, God gets sidelined. So Mark sees reality of God as key to helping young people.


Another point he explained in greater detail was the sexual struggle. In times past, this was something that went unexplained in the context of many families. It's out in the open today. On the positive side it gives us a chance to deal with it but on the other hand Mark described this topic as being so 'out there' that our kids are having to deal with a lot of 'trash.'


Acceptance and security is also important for youth. You may have been brought up to be quiet and just accept what your parents said as real and right. However, today with the Internet and the hyper-exposure to communication, the thought of just accepting what is true just isn't going to happen. This means kids have to somehow be able to question things yet still feel secure and accepted.


Mark brings help and hope for struggling families by also looking at:


--The 'Where did I ever go wrong?' question put forth by some parents.
--Facing the reality of the importance to teach our children what they need to
know about God right now.
--What to do when a child doesn't respond to training in the truth.
--The Wild Heart Adventure camp.

On July 12 of this year an opinion piece was written in the Wall Street Journal entitled, 'Smart Cities Will Know Everything About You.' This sounds like everyone's personal privacy is at risk. Just how far have we come?


Appearing with Jim to discuss this was Katherine Albrecht. Katherine is an internationally known privacy researcher, consumer advocate, bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio host. She holds a Doctorate in Human Development and consumer Education from Harvard. She has authored pro-privacy legislation and has testified before the Federal Trade Commission and numerous state legislatures.


Katherine and Jim cover many points related to the issue of privacy including:


--The shocking privacy intrusion characteristics built into Windows 10.
--Google's new photo ap allegedly keeps uploading pictures to Google's servers
even after deleting the ap.
--Will the home of the future be embedded with receivers that pick up signals
(perhaps from your computer) and transmit the information into the mobile phone
network to be received by government agents, marketers, academic researchers
and/or medical authorities?
--Wireless remote accessibility to the features of your car.
--Toll road transponders that actually may be tracking you wherever you go.
--Toys with built-in recording devices.
--Drones that have password cracking technology.
--Eye scans at the airport.
--Are we any closer to being able to initiate the biblical 'mark of the beast'?

Air Date: August 18, 2015

Host:  Jim Schneider

Guest: Peter LaBarbera and Scott Lively

Listen: MP3 | Order

Jim began by noting there is a massive push underway to undermine Christianity and to change the moral fabric of our nation. For example, this morning it was announced that for the first time in American history, the White House has hired a transgender individual (Raffi Freedman-Gurspan) for a staff post.


While this is going on, Christians are being purged from their posts as county clerks, judges and chaplains. Classroom teachers are being instructed to say 'friends' or 'students' rather than 'girls' or 'boys.' The Boy scouts have capitulated to now allow for openly homosexual scoutmasters. Courts are telling Christian bakers they cannot refuse to bake a wedding cake for so-called same-sex weddings. Even some churches are bowing to the tide of the times by ordaining homosexuals and transgenders.


Where is this headed and what are the ramifications? Jim sought answers from two guests. One was Peter LaBarbera. Peter is the founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality.


The second guest was Scott Lively. Scott is the president of Abiding Truth Ministries. He is a pastor, attorney, author, public speaker and pro-family defender. He is also the author of 'Pink Swastika.'


Scott sees the slippery slope leading to the recent Supreme Court same-sex marriage decision as going back to the start of cultural Marxism with Herbert Marcuse and the Frankfort School. He was the teacher of Saul Alinsky and laid out the radical agenda that gays have adopted as their own from the time of the Stonewall riots of 1969.


Scott believes what we're seeing today is the end of a very long march through the institutions where our opponents are 'mopping up.' Christians, on the other hand, are entering a new phase where we will be increasingly persecuted and punished.


Peter added to Scott's comments by noting that homosexuals are now attacking what they view as religious-based discrimination which they also see as unacceptable. This has placed religious freedom in a cultural battle with homosexual so-called 'rights' and the more 'rights' given by the government to homosexuals, the more gay power grows.


As this Crosstalk moves along you'll learn about:


--Scott's lawsuit involving an LGBT advocacy group in East Africa that is trying to charge him with crimes against humanity.


--A case where conversion therapy was deemed to be 'consumer fraud.'


--The guest's thoughts on the Raffi Freedman-Gurspan hiring.


--The 5-stage process that Scott believes the homosexual movement uses: tolerance, acceptance, celebration, forced participation in the culture and finally punishment of all dissenters.


--The Equality Act(Senate Bill 1858 & House Resolution-3185)that seeks to expand the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include sexual orientation in public education, public facilities, accommodations, employment, etc.


...and much more.
