Mat Staver is the founder, president and general counsel of Liberty Counsel, an international, non-profit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family. Mat is also Dean of the Liberty School of Law.

According to Mat, last year in a 5-4 decision authored by Justice Kennedy, the U.S. Supreme Court issued the Windsor case with respect to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Mat feels that decision was like throwing a lighter on a can of gasoline to burn up marriage. So as states across America have been striking down marriage laws due to last year's case, now the Supreme Court has decided it's going to stand on the sidelines while marriage 'burns' because they don't want to hear marriage cases dealing with the states of Virginia, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin and Indiana.

This means that the lower court decisions remain intact for each state. The number moves from 19 states that recognize so-called same-sex marriage to 24 with six more states likely to follow.

Mat also shows from history why a governor or attorney general doesn't have to comply with what's taking place in their state; the harm that exists in allowing same-sex marriage; why silence is not an option on this issue; the tragedy of gender confusion and much more.

Joseph Schillero is the founder of Gateway to the Heart Ministries. His ministry is dedicated to using the teaching and preaching of God's Word to equip people with biblical truths and principles to help them make wise choices concerning their media selections. Joseph is the author of the booklet, 'Biblical Filters for Your Media Choices'.

To begin the program, Jim noted the following from Joseph's website:

--Children today spend more time watching television than any other activity.
--90% of 8-16 year olds have viewed Internet pornography.
--Nearly 50% of Christian men say that porn is a major problem in their home.
--Most of the top selling video games contain extreme violence.

According to Joseph, the statistics tell us that when it comes to movies, TV, music and video games, the lifestyles of the Church and the world are really not that different. That fact was the burden on his heart that he feels God used to have him start Gateway to the Heart Ministries.

In response, Joseph wrote a booklet, 'Biblical Filters for Your Media Choices' that challenges readers to consider the following:

#1—Are my media choices taking up too much of my time?
#2—Are my media choices encouraging me to worship someone or something else other
than God?
#3—Is a central theme or message of my media choice positive?
#4—Has my media choice influenced me to sin against God?
#5—Will my media choice bring temptation into my life?
#6—What does a media choice say about the value of other people?
#7—Will my media choice desensitize my view of evil?
#8—Would I want others following the example of my media choices?
#9—Am I asking the right question about my media choices?
#10—Am I glorifying God through my media choices?

Guest: Ron Rhodes

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: Colin Gunn

Listen: MP3| Order

Colin Gunn is an award winning writer, director, and film producer. Many have been impacted by his documentary, "Indoctrination" which investigates public schools and the decline of Christianity.

Colin has now produced a new documentary on health care entitled, 'Wait Till It’s Free', that takes a hard look at how we do health care in America. He proposes to let Capitalism and the Free Market System work and keep health care affordable, not political programs like Obamacare.

Colin says that if you follow the money, you will discover why health care is so expensive, and who is making the money in today's flawed system. Hospitals are the biggest culprit:

--Bills are inflated artificially, because the government will subsidize the unpaid portion of the patient's bill.

--Those without insurance may be charged more for a procedure--or stay in the hospital longer--than those with insurance.

--Actual costs for services are often obscured or disguised on the bills, making it nearly impossible to determine whether the bills are accurate or reasonable. By contrast, the free market prices of other types of services are very transparent.

'Medicare' and 'Medicaid' have been significant steps toward socialized medicine, as the government intrudes more and more into the health care industry. Insurance in principle is not wrong, but with the government forcing people to pay for things such as abortion, people of faith are required to pay for things they don't agree with or don't need--thus increasing the cost.

Despite official denials, there are actually 'death panels' which will play an important role in the full implementation of Obamacare. Obamacare is a program that promotes the idea that one plan fits all. Thus young men and senior citizens are forced to pay for pregnancy care.

Many jobs have been lost due to the employer mandate, because employers cannot afford to pay for employees' health care benefits.

Colin calls the American doctor a 'victim.' Many doctors are looking to retire early, because the government intrusion is forcing prices up and requiring much additional paperwork, but the doctor's income does not increase and may actually go down. Thus doctors must absorb the extra costs.

It is also becoming much more difficult to get new doctors licensed. He compared the socialized health care system in the UK and Scotland with that in America. The U.S. seems to be headed for this same kind of 'single payer system.'

Colin does present a solution for our health care crisis in the last part of his documentary.

Copies of the documentary 'Wait Till It's Free' can be obtained by going to '' or go to his website '' or just Google 'Wait Till It's Free.'

Guest: Bodie Hodge

At times we are confronted with questions that challenge our faith. Sometimes they are honest questions from seekers while at other times such questions are from skeptics who have no interest in the things of God and are merely trying to confound us. Is there evidence that provides adequate answers and how should we deliver such answers?

To address this issue, Jim spoke with Bodie Hodge, a writer and researcher at Answers in Genesis who is also a member of the editorial review board. He has been involved with many books and DVD's and is a regular speaker in the Creation Museum Speaker Series. This Crosstalk discussed his latest book--Confound the Critics: Answers for Attacks on Biblical Truths.

Some of the questions and concerns that Bodie addressed for listeners included:

--Can God create a rock so big that even he can't lift it?
--Is there a right time to lie?
--The God of the Old Testament killed a lot of people so how can Christians claim
that the God of the Old Testament is any different than the god of Islam?
--Does the Bible teach that women are inferior to men?
--The nature of the controversy regarding the shape of Noah's Ark.
