When Will Jesus Come? Compelling Evidence for the Soon Return of Christ. 

Islamophobia and the 2020 Presidential Elections (Program 29)



This week on "Encounter God's Truth," our tribute to Dr. John Whitcomb turns toward his influence on the modern Biblical creation movement. First, host Wayne Shepherd replays an answer from Dr. Whitcomb regarding his friendship with Dr. Henry Morris, the co-author of The Genesis Flood. Then we hear from a tribute written to honor Dr. Whitcomb by Answers in Genesis founder Ken Ham, and we also go back to listen to Ken interview Dr. Whitcomb in 2015 from high above the construction site of the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky. Finally, we conclude with Biblical teaching by Ken on the relevance of Genesis for today’s world. Credit for the audio used in this program goes to Answers in Genesis, and also to Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, Wisconsin, and we thank them for allowing us to use these recordings. They display once again our belief that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! Thanks for listening to this special edition of “Encounter God’s Truth” from Whitcomb Ministries.

All too many believers have withdrawn from a local fellowship. But the body of Christ can only help each member grow when each member follows God’s call to meet in groups on a regular basis. Let’s talk more about why you and I need a local church.

Dave James, a Broadcast Partner for PTIB, is on the ground in Uganda, Africa, and has a report for us on the invasion of locust on the African continent. Though some believe that this.......and other "apocalyptic-like" events around the world are a fulfillment of Bible Prophecy, that is not the case. Dave will join Jimmy DeYoung at the Broadcast Table to explain why what we see happening in our world today is not that prophetic scenario found in the Bible, which is being fulfilled right now in history, but will happen after the Rapture and in the Tribulation Period.

Health Freedom Update: The Relentless American Pursuit of Socialized Medicine. We are joined by Twila Brase (Pres. and Co-Founder of Citizen’s Council for Health Freedom). Topics discussed include: Democrat Debate Overview. The Status: Socialized Medicine in the U.S. Let the Patients Decide! Coronavirus: The Dangers of Quarantine and The Emergency Health Powers Act.

Islamophobia and the 2020 Presidential Elections (Program 28)

LGBT activists don’t like what the Bible has to say about their lifestyle, so they want to ban it.  City after city and even whole states are passing unconstitutional and ungodly laws banning people from receiving Christian counseling to fight unwanted same-sex attractions and dysphoric identities.  In such locations, even if patients want Christian counseling, they are banned from receiving it. There’s an organization that is fighting this and recently argued the matter before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mat Staver is the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel.  He’s a constitutional attorney with over 230 published legal opinions and has authored 8 scholarly law review publications and 10 books.  He’s filed numerous briefs and argued in many federal and state courts. He has also argued two landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

The broadcast began with discussion concerning two discrimination cases.  The first was a prayer case involving United Parcel Service while the second involved a long-standing, landmark cross in Pensacola, Florida.

Last week, Mat presented an oral argument before a 3 judge panel of the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in regard to some ordinances passed in the city of Boca Raton in Palm Beach County, Florida.  It’s a case known as Otto v. Boca Raton.  

This is a case where the city and county passed ordinances that ban any type of counseling that has the goal of changing a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity, behavior or romantic attractions toward someone of the same sex.

This case is basically about a ban on what some call ‘conversion therapy.’  Mat believes this is a political term as there is no such thing as ‘conversion therapy.’  He noted that if you talk to individuals in the counseling profession, they don’t use the phrase ‘reparative therapy’ either.  Once applied, the term conjures up all kinds of horrible things that supposedly take place. He compared it to someone saying you shouldn’t counsel someone for depression because a century ago people used to do lobotomies or blood-letting.  Perhaps that was true a century ago but that’s not the case today.  

He gave the following illustration: The client is like the driver of a car.  The counselor is the GPS. While sitting in the car, it’s the driver who makes the decision as to what the destination is, and that individual puts that information into the GPS.  The GPS then uses its technology to help get you to the place you’ve selected as the driver. The GPS doesn’t dictate to the driver where the driver’s supposed to go. In other words, counselors don’t force clients to reach a certain goal.  They listen and talk about the issue and what’s taking place in the life of the client. Then when the client reveals what the issue is and that they are seeking a resolution due to a conflict that’s causing stress in their life against their value system, they want to overcome that so that they can be in-line with that value system once again.

As you can see, Mat exposes the deception behind the labeling and rhetoric that is part of this emotionally charged issue.  However, that’s just the beginning because while many are led to believe it’s the counseling that’s harmful, what should we make of the puberty-blocking drugs, the lifetime necessity of cross-sex hormones, as well as the amputation of body parts unique to their birth gender?

Mat noted that there’s no evidence that shows harm is done to clients receiving counseling.  Instead, young boys and girls can still be counseled to do something completely different, in spite of the fact that 85-95% of them that experience gender confusion resolve this naturally without any intervention and become comfortable with their birth sex.


Chris discusses the growing number of secession movements at work in the country today, as patriots across the nation are fighting back against radical left wing Democratic policies.  The interesting twist to these movements, is that they are not attempting to separate from the United States, but to divide certain states, allowing some to join other states, or to form new territories — while remaining in the union.  Meanwhile, there are other separatist movements in the country, calling for everything from a “New Afrika Republic” to the liberal “Cascadia” (the union of Washington, Oregon and British Columbia!)  We also discuss leaders who opposed division in similar circumstances (such as Alfred the Great and Abraham Lincoln), and went to war to preserve unity.

Today's sermon by Dr. Erwin Lutzer 

Warning after warning is given in Scripture such as in Colossians 2:8: ‘Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.’  Another in Galatians 6:9 says, ‘If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.’ In I John 4:1 we are warned that ‘…many false prophets are gone out into the world.’ The apostle Paul urged Timothy and Titus about the need to hang on to sound doctrine and warned against those who are deceivers.    

In order to help Christians in this process, Crosstalk welcomed Jill Martin Rische.  Jill is the eldest daughter of Walter Martin and the founder, along with her husband Kevin, of Walter Martin Ministries at  She’s an adjunct professor at the University of Northwestern-St. Paul and Crown College.  She has degrees both in Old Testament Literature and in Humanities/History. She’s the editor of Walter Martin’s 1965 classic work, ‘The Kingdom of the Cults,’ and co-author of ‘The Kingdom of the Occult.’  Her appearance centered around discussion of ‘The Kingdom of the Cults Handbook.’

What made Jill feel there was urgency for production of a handbook based upon ‘Kingdom of the Cults’?  She felt it was a great opportunity to address requests that have come to the ministry over the years for a study guide/book that could be used to start or take to a Bible study without having to carry the large, original version.

What exactly is a ‘cult’?  Jill described a cult as a group of individuals who gather around someone who believes they’re the only one qualified to interpret the Bible.  This may be someone who claims to have had visions or talked with God. From this they create their own truth and redefine God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.  

If you’re curious as to whether ‘The Kingdom of the Cults Handbook’ is a reference tool that may help you determine truth from error, review this Crosstalk broadcast as Jill also addressed the following:

–Why defending the faith is not judgmentalism.

–Jehovah’s Witnesses

–Christian Science 



–Comments from Crosstalk listeners.
