The Courage of Bonhoeffer


The way to teach character is through role models and biographies. Brilliant young German theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, author of The Cost of Discipleship, challenged Hitler and the compromised German Church. Because Bonheoffer lived a cross centered life, he also died a martyr's death at the age of 39. Stephen Nichols, professor at Lancaster Bible College and the author of Bonheoffer - On the Christian Life, From The Cross, For The World, sees parallels between Germany in Bonhoeffer's day and our society today and what it means to be a true disciple. "Silence in the face of evil is itself evil," wrote Bonhoeffer.

Real Courage of Contemporaries



How do you overcome fear? Fear is the opposite of faith. Fear immobilizes us. Internationally known Tony Perkins, President of The Family Research Council, author of No Fear -Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth, tells of courageous young people such as Moriah Peters, a star singer on American Idol, who was shunned because she said she wouldn't kiss anyone until she got married. Or UCLA student and prolife activist Lila Rose, who videotaped abortionists at Planned Parenthood. Fear is human, but God is supernatural. God wants us to be courageous, as we trust Him. NO FEAR!

Solution: Article 5


What's the solution to out-of-control federal spending, with a tyrannical President and a corrupt Supreme Court? Our Founders feared the Federal government would crush the rights and autonomy of state governments. That's why they put Article 5 into the Constitution. Mark Meckler, president of Citizens For Self Governance, says, "Our Founders brilliantly gave the states rights and power to rein in federal power through a convention of states, to write amendments to the Constitution. Amendments could require a balanced budget and stop the abuses of power in Executive orders and agencies like the IRS.

Problem: Tyrannical Government



What are the consequences of the Supreme Court's ruling on homosexual "marriage?" Is religious freedom unconstitutional? Brad Dacus, president of the Pacific Justice Institute, gives examples of Christian students being persecuted, while schools promote homosexuality through role models, reading and writing assignments and homosexual history. Christian schools, businesses, and churches are at risk for discrimination lawsuits, so that sexual orientation now trumps religious freedom.

What role did public schools play in the acceptance and promotion of homosexuality? What schools teach, our culture becomes.

The Heart of God


Why did God create us? Just to serve Him? There's more to it than that. Why do people have children? Just to serve them? No! We have children to love and enjoy them. So God, who can create anything, doesn't need our service but wants us to work with Him so we can get to know and love Him intimately. Movie producer, Bill Myers, author of The Jesus Experience - Journey Deeper into The Heart of God, said, "I had downgraded God's love as His beloved child to become simply a servant trying to earn God's love. I exchanged success for God instead of intimacy with God. Knowing Christ's love changes us.

The Horror of 9/11



How would you overcome extreme fear and panic and remain calm if you were in the World Trade Center's towering inferno on 9/11 and you were completely blind? Listen to a total triumph of trust in this horrific catastrophe as a blind man, Michael Hingson, describes his miraculous survival in the face of imminent death. Michael Hingson, the national ambassador for the Braille Literacy Campaign, is the author of Thunder Dog. Although Roselle, Mike's guide dog, was intensely focused on guiding him to safety, she remained calm and even gave a firefighter a kiss on his final trip up the stairs.

Battlefield America


Is our government going to war against the American people? Our Founders warned us that an army inside our nation that makes us enemy combatants would crush our freedoms. The police have become transformed into soldiers. Swat teams terrorize and murder innocent people. John Whitehead, President of the Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America - The War on The American People, compares the militarized police and loss of freedoms to Nazi Germany in the 1930's. Schools are being used to create a docile easily controlled populace. Schools have become "electronic concentration camps!"

Religious Freedom



The US Supreme Court is trying to play God in re-defining marriage as same sex and bringing us into an era of lawlessness and moral anarchy. What will happen to religious liberty and Christian schools and businesses that refuse to agree with the immoral Court decision? The great attorney, Michael Farris, who helped make home schooling legal, is the chancellor of Patrick Henry College and author of The History of Religious Liberty, vows to fight for religious liberty in the face of growing hostility by the courts. We've taken our religious freedom for granted, and now the courts are threatening to eliminate them.

Dare To Be A Daniel part 2


The NEA has long supported homosexuality but now says the First Amendment is dangerous and discriminatory because it protects freedom of religion! Because of the Supreme Court ruling declaring homosexuals right to marry, Christians will face persecution in their own country. John Lennox, author of Against the Flow - The Inspiration of Daniel In An Age of Relativism, says, Daniel was thrown to the lions for his open defiance of the king's decree not to pray in public. The courage of Daniel challenges us to be bold and not back down against evil. God wants us to be fearless in expressing of faith as a witness.

Dare To Be A Daniel part 1



The Supreme Court decision declaring same sex marriage to be Constitutional violates the Constitution and God's Word.

The Biblical book of Daniel shows the supernatural power of God and challenges us to take a righteous stand against a degenerate culture! John Lennox, author of Against the Flow - The Inspiration of Daniel In An Age of Relativism, says Meshach Shadrach and Abednego outraged the king for not bowing to the golden idol. The cost of refusing to bow to idolatry is high, but it's supremely higher to reject God. Atheists reject the supernatural but God shows his power as The Hand on the wall.

The New Terrorism


Considering how unprepared our government was prior to 911, how can we expect them to respond to a major terrorist strike? Muslim terrorists have demonstrated extreme savagery that's a threat to our way of life and our very lives. Van Hipp, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army and the author of The New Terrorism - How to Fight It and Defeat It says, "Today we face a much greater threat than ever that could lead to societal collapse, the loss of cities and shutting down the electrical power grid, computers, airports, water, food delivery and banking resulting in the deaths of many Americans.

Choice in Education



With the Court decision on homosexual marriage, public schoolchildren will be forced to learn that sin is OK. But parents are considering other educational options. Nevada is the first state to give universal school choice to all K-12 students! This means private Christian schools, art, music or computer schools will be paid for with tax dollars. Leslie Hiner, with the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice, says, "If you want to improve education and save lots of tax money, it's no longer a theoretical opinion but a fact proven through many years of practice through choice in education." Now is time for choice.

Federal Control of Local Schools part 2


For all the basic problems of abortion, immorality and illiteracy, there must be a root cause. Colin Gunn, producer of Indoctrination- Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity, says our culture is the product of our schools. Christian students and teachers are forbidden from being Christian! Yet secular educators are given awards for promoting atheism and homosexuality. We are losing our culture, because Christians have refused to educate their own children but continue to support a corrupt system. Why do parents trust their precious children to a system that destroys their faith in God?

Side B: 7/18/2015

Federal Control of Local Schools part 1



Common Core, the new federal takeover of local schools through curriculum and tests, is causing parents to reconsider public schools. Alex Newman, co-author of Crimes of the Educators - How Utopians are Using Government Schools to Destroy America's Children, says there has been a deliberate dumbing down of children by using a reading method that fails to teach reading, memorizing whole words instead of phonetics, to create illiterates dependent on the government. Teaching immoral sex ed. results in cultural degeneracy. The result is the transformation from Christian and capitalist, to socialist and totalitarian.

God's Love & The Drop Box part 2


How does God make Godly men? Pat Morley, author of How God Makes Men - 10 Epic Stories, One Huge Promise for Your Life, gives examples of Godly men, like Abraham, showing us to trust God no matter what! Or Joseph, an innocent man, sold into slavery and then goes to prison, shows us that God uses circumstances to bring about a greater good, such as saving the world from starvation. Nehemiah shows that when we act on God's leading, we get a Godly destiny. Job shows us how suffering develops our character. Or Moses, who was in training for 40 years, became one of the world's greatest leaders.

God's Love & The Drop Box part 1



In a hedonistic, self-centered, self-absorbed generation comes a young filmmaker, raised up by God, to turn hearts to the Father through His love. Brian Ivie, author of The Drop Box - How 500 Abandoned Babies, an Act of Compassion, and A Movie Changed My Life Forever, flew to Korea to make a documentary on saving abandoned babies, left in a drop box, & got saved himself. The touching story of Pastor Lee, who saved hundreds of disabled, paralyzed, blind and helpless discarded babies, showed Brian, God's infinite love for him. Brian Ivie's life changed from sinner to award winning film director for Christ.

The Transforming Love of Christ part 2


Why do Christians take a bold stand for Christ, at school or throughout history, when they're persecuted or killed? It's because of their profound love for God. Why did God create people? Was it to worship and serve Him? He has angels for that. God is love and His primary purpose for creating us was to lavish His infinite love upon us and enjoy us forever. Billy Humphrey, author of To Know Him - How Intimacy With God Changes Everything, says, "Familiarity with scripture has misled many into thinking they know all about God when they don't know Him at all in a personal intimate relationship."

Side B: 6/20/2015

The Transforming Love of Christ part 1



There's plenty of information but little transformation! People know what Jesus taught but not how He lived. Stephen Smith, author of The Jesus Life, Eight Ways to Recover Authentic Christianity, says "Jesus was not stressed as many of us are today. He enjoyed life with dinners, debates and long walks with his disciples, yet He regularly got away to be alone in prayer. The dinner table is more than simply eating but fellowship and acceptance." Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Love changes atheists into followers of Christ. To live as Jesus lived means to savor and enjoy life not just endure it.

God, Israel and America part 2


Why is our government claiming that Islam is peaceful when most terrorism is by Muslims? How can we win a war if we don't know who our enemy is? Is our President enabling radical mullahs ruling Iran to get nuclear weapons? Radical Muslims believe that they are called by Allah to usher in their caliphate through a world cataclysm and holocaust of Israel. Michele Bachmann, a leading candidate for President in 2012, served on the Congressional Intelligence Committee says we need to take the threats from the radicals ruling Iran seriously. Newt Gingrich says we are losing the war against radical Islam!

Side B: 6/6/2015

God, Israel and America part 1



Why is our President exchanging our ally Israel for our mortal enemy Iran? God says in Genesis that He will bless those nations that bless His people and curse those who are a curse to them. The President has put us on a collision course with God over Israel. Michele Bachmann, a leading candidate for President in 2012, who served on the Congressional Intelligence Committee, says it's time for a 3rd Great Awakening of God to turn our nation from God's judgment that we're headed toward under this President. Israeli PM Netanyahu warns America that a nuclear Iran is a threat to world peace and our survival.

Parents! Don't simply ask what kind of education you want for your children.
Ask what kind of people you want them to become!
