Bob Loggans is pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, Wisconsin. This program features portions of a message delivered by Pastor Loggans at a VCY Rally on September 11, 2010, exactly nine years after the 911 attack on the World Trade Center.

In his message, Pastor Loggans reminds us of our nation's serious moral decline in recent years, and presents God's prescription for turning that slide around. Using 2 Chronicles 7:14 as his guide, he shows that the answer is not political or economic, but spiritual. And the beginning must be with God's people, who need to be in a right relationship with Him through salvation, a resurgence of humility, a revival of prayer, a return to the Scriptures, and a repentance of sin.

He also urged us to pray for our leaders--if they are believers that they will act in accordance with God's Word, and if they are not believers, that they will come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Host: Jim Schneider

Guest: Usama Dakdok

Listen: MP3|Order

Usama Dakdok is the Founder of The Straight Way of Grace Ministry which equips Christians to be effective witnesses of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors as well as minister to Muslims directly. Usama was born in Egypt where he grew up in a Christian home. He learned Islam in government schools as every student does in a Muslim country. Usama also studied for a university degree in Egypt which included the study of Sharia. He came to the United States in 1992 and founded The Straight Way of Grace Ministry where he travels the country revealing the truth about Islam.

According to Usama, the Council on American/Islamic Relations (CAIR) claims they are American-Muslims, part of America's history and its future. He noted that there is no such thing as an American Muslim because in order to be a true Muslim you have to give your allegiance to Allah, to Mohammed, Islam, to the Koran, to the Hadith and to the Muslim country you come from. On the other hand, to be an American, you have to put Islam aside. This is why CAIR seeks to remove the Constitution from the American court system and replace it with Sharia/Islamic law because they know they have an obligation to obey what they believe is Allah's words in the Koran and Mohammed's words in the Hadith.

On this broadcast you'll learn that...

--Members of CAIR will tell you that America was discovered by Muslims before
Columbus set foot here.
--Mohamed Elibiary, a security advisor to President Obama, 'tweeted' that
America is an Islamic country.
--CAIR is a Jihadi organization that is not afraid to sue businesses.
--Usama was called to speak by the Tea Party at an Ohio school and he details the
resistance put forth by CAIR.
--CAIR convinced a Minnesota school not to let Usama speak there. Liberty Counsel
became involved and eventually Usama was allowed to give his presentation.
--There are verses in the Muslim holy writings that motivate their quest for
dominance over all non-Muslims.

This and much more is covered as Usama answers questions from Crosstalk listeners nationwide.

Guest: Ron Rhodes

Listen: MP3|Order

Ron Rhodes is 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 that teaches false doctrine. Ron is the author of more than 60 books, many of which focus on the topic of apologetics. One of his latest books, which is discussed on this program is called, 'Conversations with Jehovah's Witnesses'.

On numerous weekends there are large conventions in stadiums and complexes across America where Jehovah's Witnesses gather. Ron indicated that these conventions have tremendous public relations value for the witnesses because when you get that many people together, witnesses in the local community get to see just how strong their organization is and it gives them confidence that they are the true people of God.

While in attendance there are sermons, dramas, appearances by missionaries and international delegates along with a presentation of the Lord's Supper for the 'anointed class'.

Appeals to attend such conferences can be deceiving to those outside the organization because Jehovah's Witnesses may use a theme that appears biblical. Ron, however, pointed out that this is a tactic used by the witnesses as they utilize biblical terms familiar to many that have been redefined to mean something entirely different.

Ron explained that one of the keys to reaching Jehovah's Witnesses is to ask strategic questions that make them really think about the things they've been taught.

For example, Jehovah's Witnesses believe that God created all things including Jesus. They believe that Jesus is the archangel Michael. Ron responds by reading Isaiah 44:24 where God is speaking to his people, telling them that he created the universe alone by himself. Then he takes them to Colossians 1:16 and John 1:3, verses that tell us that Jesus created the universe. So the obvious question is this: If only God created the universe and if Jesus is also the creator of the universe, what does that say about Christ's identity?

Ron also looks at the organization's view of God, heaven, hell, the resurrection, one of their false prophecies as well as his latest book that gives the reader a chance to observe a real conversation with a Jehovah's Witness.

Guest: Will Estrada

Listen: MP3|Order

Will Estrada is the Director of Federal Relations with the Home School Legal Defense Association. He is a home school graduate who went on to get his Juris Doctor degree. He joined HSLDA in 2004 and is HSLDA's representative on Capitol Hill. He is an advocate for all home schoolers before Congress and federal departments. He is also an advocate before Congress for the Parental Rights Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. He is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court bar and the California bar.

Will was at the Supreme Court for this morning's ruling where in a 5-4 decision, the court ruled that Hobby Lobby and other closely held, for-profit corporations cannot be forced by the federal government to provide abortion inducing drugs and violate their sincerely held religious beliefs.

The other issue discussed involved the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty. Will is particularly concerned about Article 7 of the treaty which says: 'In all actions concerning children with disabilities, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.'

According to Will, in the U.S. system of law there are only two times when 'best interests of the child' is used by a court. It's used when a parent is found by a court to be guilty of abuse or neglect. The second time it's used is when a court is dealing with a custody dispute in a divorce.

There's a line of U.S. Supreme Court cases dating back to 1925 (Pierce v. Society of Sisters) which said that the right of parents to direct the education and upbringing of their children is a fundamental right.

So why are some of our legislators courting the idea that we need to partner with the U.N. via this treaty? Will this treaty actually help disabled American citizens when they travel abroad? Does it do anything beyond U.S. disability laws, laws that are already the best in the world? How would it affect home schoolers? Get the answers to these questions and more when you review this edition of Crosstalk.

Host: Vic Eliason

Vic shared just a small portion of the many stories from this week that should be of concern to Americans, and to Christians in particular. Among them:

--An update on Meriam Ibrahim, the Christian woman released from death row in Sudan on Monday, who was arrested with her husband and two children at Khartoum airport on Tuesday as the family attempted to leave the country, has now been released from prison again and reportedly is in the U.S. Embassy, under orders by the Muslim government of Sudan not to leave the country.

--U.S. soldiers have been ordered to adhere to Islamic Sharia during the month of Ramadan in Bahrain and other Islamic countries, and are being required to sit through lessons on Islam in a 'Ramadan Tent', especially the regulations against eating, drinking, or smoking during the daytime throughout the month of Ramada--regulations Islam says apply to everyone, not just Muslims.

--It appears that the IRS is not the only agency losing emails, as the Environmental Protection Agency now admits having lost some as well, causing the House Oversight Committee to consider including the EPA and other agencies in the investigation of the IRA's loss of Lois Lerner's emails being requested by Congress.

--Meanwhile, copies of some of Lois Lerner's missing emails have been found on the computers of those she corresponded with, including some that show she suggested that the IRS conduct an audit of Senator Chuck Grassley, who was among those looking into IRS conduct.

--The IRS will pay $50,000 to a national organization supporting traditional marriage because of the 'leak' of information about their donors to a gay-rights group--the funds to be paid, of course, with taxpayer-provided dollars.

--A Supreme Court decision on Thursday invalidating three appointments made by Barack Obama when the Senate was still in session, has placed up to 430 other cases in doubt.

--The Boy Scouts have now allowed scouts to march in a gay-pride parade this Sunday

--A 'mainline' denomination, the Presbyterian Church, USA, which has now voted to approve same-sex marriages, to divest investments in countries doing business with Israel, and also not to support protecting babies born alive during an abortion.

--The United Church of Christ has agreed to be an official sponsor of the 2014 'Gay Games' in Cleveland in August, donating at least $50,000 in funds and donated time to support the event.

--An abortionist who relocated to Milwaukee after his clinic was closed in Rockford, Illinois, has been unable to obtain hospital privileges within 30 miles, causing a court to rule he must re-apply and be accepted before he can begin his practice at an abortion clinic in Milwaukee.

--In a story that came in during the program, a writer at reports that two Republican Representative have introduced a bill offering a $1 million cash prize to any person that can provide Lois Lerner's emails, and $500,000 to anyone who can provide information to prosecutors that would be admissible in a court of law--the prizes to be paid from the IRS budget.
