Shahram Hadian is a former Muslim who was born in Iran.  His family moved to the United States in 1978 to seek freedom.  While in the the U.S., Shahram found real freedom after he placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior.  He now leads a ministry that speaks the truth in love about the true goals of Islam and the threat of Shariah in America.

This broadcast featured Shahram as he gave a PowerPoint presentation at a Steeling the Mind Conference in September of this year on the topic, 'Islam's American Agenda.'

Drawing from accepted Islamic sources such as the Qur'an, the Sunnah (which includes the Hadith and the Surah) as well as the Shariah, Shahram looked at Islamic history and doctrine to point out that Islam's purpose is to refute Christianity.  In fact, Islamic teaching and doctrine also refutes the idea that Islam is tolerant and peaceful.  His warning proves that groups like ISIS are simply doing what their prophet Mohammed did.

He wrapped up by noting how repentance and turning to the one true God are the only way back.  This involves preaching the Gospel.  It's an offense but that's because it pierces the heart like it did to him.  The love and truth of Christ must be preached to Muslim refugees in order to change their hearts. ​

It's been calculated that 28% of Scripture was prophecy at the time it was written.  That's over one-fourth of the Bible.  This includes 1,800 prophecies in Scripture taking up over 8,300 verses including 1,239 prophecies in the Old Testament and 578 in the New Testament.  With so much Scripture devoted to the topic, don't you think God put it there for a reason?  Yet, we find the church sound asleep, oblivious to the fact that the bridegroom is coming for the bride.

Jeff Kinley is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary and has previously served as a pastor.  He has a passion for sharing biblical truth.  He is the author of over 20 books including the book that was discussed on this Crosstalk, 'Wake the Bride' that is subtitled, 'Facing These Last Days with Your Eyes Wide Open'.  This is a guide to the book of Revelation written to arouse a sleeping church and motivate her toward early awaiting and preparing for his coming.

As a bride gets ready for her wedding, she spends months in preparation.  In other words, no bride would conceive of sleeping through wedding day or even being drowsy leading up to it.  However, that picture of drowsiness is what we see from the church in the book of Revelation and that's what we see today.

Jeff spoke about 2 Peter 3:1-13 where Peter notes that in the last days many will scoff at the idea of Christ returning for his bride.  This is happening today from people both outside as well as inside the church.  Some of the scoffing is due to over-speculation and the sensationalizing of the topic in order to manipulate the curiosity people may have surrounding the topic of Christ's return.  

What is the message of prophecy to the church today?  Jeff referred to the Old Testament prophecies that pointed to the first coming of Christ which was meant to give hearers a sense of security and hope.  He believes the prophecies that have yet to be fulfilled offer the same thing for people today as it strengthens our faith in Scripture.  

He also noted how prophecy gives us a 'heads up' on what's going to happen in the world.  This means as Christians we have the answers to the questions that many people have such as, 'Where's the world headed?'    

If you've had questions concerning the date of Christ's return, the next prophetic event to come, the concept of a rapture, a judgment for believers, judgments on earth, the antichrist or those who claim they've been to heaven, this program provides the answers along with answers to questions from Crosstalk listeners.

Guest:  Jason Lisle

Listen:  MP3 ​| Order

Dr. Jason Lisle is the director of research for the Institute for Creation Research.  Dr. Lisle leads ICR's team of scientists who continue to investigate and demonstrate the evidence for creation.  Dr. Lisle has his PhD in astrophysics and specialized in solar astrophysics and has made a number of scientific discoveries regarding the solar photosphere and has contributed to the field of general relativity.  Dr. Lisle was instrumental in developing the planetarium at the Creation Museum in Kentucky.  Dr. Lisle worked full time in apologetics ministry focusing on the defense of Genesis.  He has authored numerous articles and books demonstrating that biblical creation is the only logical possibility for origins.  His latest book is entitled, 'Understanding Genesis: How to Analyze, Interpret and Defend Scripture.'

When someone tells you that you have your interpretation of Scripture and they have theirs, is this a defense mechanism they're using or are there many interpretations of Scripture?

Dr. Lisle began by noting that today there's such a plurality of beliefs yet there can be only one meaning behind any passage of Scripture.  With any book, the author has something he's trying to communicate and that's how the meaning is defined.  So while you can interpret a Bible passage any way you like, there's only one correct interpretation that corresponds to the primary meaning of the passage.  Therefore through correct study of the Bible you ought to be able to get to that one true meaning.

Then what about those times in Bible study classes when the teacher/leader may ask, 'What does this passage mean to you?'  While this seems to happen quite often, Dr. Lisle asked listeners to imagine what it would be like if NASA operated like this and asked various individuals their opinion on rocket trajectories.  Instead, realizing that the verse only means one thing, the group leader should be asking how each individual can apply the verse in question to their life.

In the end, can we really understand God's Word?  Dr. Lisle said that there's no doubt about that.  God is a linguistic being and he is certainly capable of communicating with us and he created Adam with the ability to speak.  That's not to say that all parts of Scripture are equally easy to understand but it is understandable to the point that even a child can do so.

The problem is that in the core of our being as sinners, we don't want to hear what God has to say.  We also don't bother to study God's Word much.  Genesis then becomes the book people mess up the most as they are strongly motivated to read the Bible in a non-natural way.  This results in people interpreting the Bible in relation to their feelings about the universe.      

As Dr. Lisle continued, he explained the following:

--What is hermeneutics?  
--What part does the Holy Spirit have in analyzing and interpreting Scripture? 
--How do commentaries play out in the interpretation of Scripture?  
--What part does logic have in interpreting the Bible when some things in the 
  Bible seem illogical?  
--Is Genesis historical narrative or is there some other way it is to be 
--Are there contradictions in Scripture?

...and much more!

Guest: Usama Dakdok

Jim opened this edition of Crosstalk by reporting that last July a French speaking ISIS terrorist threatened to fill the streets of Paris with dead bodies. The graphic video featured a terrorist shooting a man identified as a captured Syrian soldier at close range and throwing his body off a cliff. Before the execution, the masked terrorist declared that ISIS loves death like you love life and urged supporters in France to carry out more terror attacks. He directed his threat not only at French citizens, but at everyone who fights Allah and his prophet.

As many readers know, the initial threat was carried out and attacks took place in Paris. At least 129 people are dead with another 352 injured. Interestingly, the morning before the attack, President Obama had just proclaimed that ISIS had been contained in Iraq and Syria.

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Usama Dakdok. Usama is the director of the Straightway of Grace Ministry. Usama was born in Egypt where he was schooled in Islamic Law. Usama has translated the Qur'an into English to expose what the Qur'an really teaches. Usama is the host of the VCY America Network radio program, Revealing the Truth About Islam.

Usama believes the West has yet to acknowledge the truth about Islam because of our ignorance regarding the truth about the word of Allah and the truth of the teaching of Mohammed and the Hadith. Therefore, we are literally digging our own graves with the stupidity of our own political correctness.

Usama quoted from the word of Allah and the teachings of Mohammed to show that Islam is bent on the destruction of all non-Muslims not willing to accept Islam. He also debunked the notion that numerous jihadi verses of destruction are really defense verses. This shows how ISIS is 100% pure Muslim and the best Muslims you could ever have because their actions match up with their doctrine.

There was also discussion concerning Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). According to Usama, CAIR is an Islamic-jihadi, Muslim Brotherhood front group. Due to what we've known since the Holy Land Trial in 1991, Usama believes Awad shouldn't be speaking propaganda to us about the loving and peaceful Islam. Instead, he should be in prison because he's the head of CAIR. In addition, Usama noted that this is the same man who wanted to see Shariah Law practiced in Florida, Alabama and Oklahoma.

In light of all this, how did President Obama respond to the attacks in Paris? He released or transferred at least 5 more Guantanamo Bay detainees from the prison in Cuba to the United Arab Emirates. These men have been held for close to 14 years because of the threat of terrorism in the U.S.

Guest: Ken Ham

Listen:  MP3 ​| Order

There appears to be an alarming number of people who have turned from the simplicity of the Bible to a postmodern faith or even a secular worldview.  This has led individuals, families, churches and even Bible colleges down the pathway of biblical compromise.  

The guest on this edition of Crosstalk has issued a call for this to stop.  He wants to see homes and churches end the compromise and to return to biblical authority with the teaching of sound, biblical apologetics.   

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Ken Ham.  Ken is the president, CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis and the highly acclaimed Creation Museum and Ark Encounter.

Ken began by presenting some specifics concerning the life size ark that has been under construction in northern Kentucky.  This timber framed, mortise and tenon built structure (the largest in the world) will be a Christian-themed attraction and will open July 7th of 2016.  Research indicates they will have a minimum of 1.4 million up to 2.2 million visitors per year including many unchurched individuals as well.  

While Ken is interested in the big message, others are interested in the big business it will bring.  For example, it's estimated that it will increase the economy of Kentucky by about 4 billion dollars over 10 years while creating up to 20,000 jobs during the same period.

Ken also gave a brief synopsis of two of his previous books-'Already Gone' and 'Already Compromised' that caused great concern regarding the secularization in individuals, churches and even Bible colleges.  The followup is called 'Ready to Return'.  This is the final book in the series.  In this book, Ken had the firm, America's Research Group go to the millennials in our churches to find out what they believe.  They were asked questions such as: 'Do you consider yourself born-again?'  'Do you believe if you're a good person you will go to heaven?' and  'Should gay couples be allowed to marry?'    

Ken summarized at one point by noting how some people wonder how the ancient Israelites could adopt pagan ways.  He went on to note that the teaching of evolution and millions of years is 'the pagan religion of this age to explain life without God.'  The public schools are imposing the religion of atheism and naturalism on generations of youth and this belief is one of the major reasons why so many millennials doubt the Bible and leave the church.
