Guest: Abner Chou. Today we begin a series on the study of the book of 2 Timothy. This book will help us know how to respond to persecution from governments as well as from family or friends that reject us or criticize us for obeying God and holding fast to His Word and the gospel. Paul knew all too well about both persecution from government as he wrote the book of 2 Timothy while chained to a prison wall. Paul is writing to encourage Timothy as well as you to not leave the faith when times get tough. He also knew what it was like to have no one stand with him but to forsake him. In this letter Paul is encouraging young Timothy on how to stand for truth under such circumstances and to do so with peace. Paul knows that he is very likely to be murdered for the faith in very short order. Yet, Paul invites young Timothy to come to see him in prison so that he might see how God is faithful and has given him peace. In this broadcast Abner will challenge us to make sure that we do not seek to make the Word of God relevant to our life but to make our life relevant to the Word of God. Abner also challenges us to not seek for being relevant in the moment only to end up irrelevant for eternity. This program gives us the backdrop of 2 Timothy and sets the stage for our verse by verse study in this series with Abner Chou.

Part 2 of our series of the certainty of God's Word through the Teaching Ministry of the Holy Spirit. Why, if the Holy Spirit produces certainty about His Word, do Christians have doubts? The first answer is that not everyone who says they believe, really truly are born again!

Deadly Temptations (Part 2) Listen in to this recent sermon that Pastor Mike preached at Bethlehem Bible Church in West Boylston, MA. In this sermon Pastor Mike continues to talk about deadly temptations being sold by the world. We need to should guard ourselves and run away from these temptations.

On PTIB today Jimmy DeYoung talks with Ken Timmerman about geo-political issues that are happening around this world that seem to be setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled. Jimmy and Ken will discuss Islamic State who has a recruitment document that is being used to provoke the Islamic World to prepare to fight to the "end of the world". They will also talk about Obama's gamble to make a nuclear deal with a "theocratic regime; millions of Christians who are at risk of death in their battle with Islam, in the Middle East and around the world; and an Iranian official who tweeted a photo of Obama with a gun at his head.

Before his death, the Apostle Peter wrote two epistles that stirred up his readers toward fruitful growth in the faith. Peter continues to impact generation after generation of Christians.

Jim began this edition of Crosstalk by alerting listeners about an important vote that is taking place this evening in the Senate. According to the U.S. Senate Calendar, the Senate will be voting on S-1881. This legislation is designed to prohibit federal funding of Planned Parenthood. To present your view on this important issue, you can call your legislators via the contact information listed below. The following additional points were also brought up for listener discussion: --A Navy official told Fox News that punishing a Lieutenant Commander who used an unauthorized weapon to fire back at the Chattanooga gunman who shot and killed 5 service members could not be completely ruled out. --The Obama administration is looking at banning Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs.

How to Walk as Children of the Light! Passage: Ephesians 5.8-14

In today’s program, Tom wraps-up a two-part series with guests Carl and Carl Jr. Kerby.

Peyote Christianity: On today's show, Pastor Mike discusses a wide variety of topics such as systematic theology, abortion, feminism, and Peyote.

Each and every one of us has the potential to influence the world for good. John gives us two examples of individuals in this week’s boralogue who decided to step out in faith and help those in need. The first, George Weidenfeld, escaped the Nazis during WWII when brave Christians spirited him away from danger. Today, at the age of 95, George is still repaying that generosity by helping persecuted Christians in the Middle East escape violent Islamism. And Katherine Locke, a retired nurse in her 70s, helped Kurdish Christians in Iraq during the time of Saddam Hussein. We can make a difference. What will our influence be? A Pakistani Christian, who we’ll name Pastor X, has fled his home with his family to another country. Authorities in that country are threatening to deport them back to Pakistan where being a Christian is a dangerous way of life. John has begun raising funds to help this family complete citizenship paperwork and avoid persecution. If you would like to help, go to our homepage (www.steelonsteel.com) and click on the link to support Pastor X. Throughout WWII and the Cold War, the Soviet Union activated several journalists as spies. Matthew Vadum (www.matthewvadum.com), Senior Editor at the Capital Research Center, shows that journalists made excellent spies due to their high-level contacts in business and government, and their ability to influence those decision makers. Today, the media have evolved into activist journalists who think of themselves as correspondents of the world with no loyalty to America. Exerting an enormous amount of influence on Pope Francis is his scientific advisor, Hans Schellnhuber, a devout atheist. Rejoining us is Matt Briggs (www.wmbriggs.com), Author and Adjunct Professor of Statistics at Cornell University, who discusses the Pope’s latest encyclical, the largely false information contained it, and how Francis’s advisor is pushing for a one –world government with a global council, an earth constitution, and a world court. Finally, we welcome back Luis Fleischman (www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Advisor at the Center for Security Policy. He recalls the cover-up surrounding the death of prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was investigating an Iranian terrorist attack in Argentina in the 1990s. He shows Argentina’s stand with Iran against perceived imperialism from the West, socialist collaboration between Cuba and Venezuela, and terrorist security threats to the U.S. found in tunnels underneath our borders. As always, join us online for our weekly Section 6 intelligence briefing, featuring analysis by John on important stories highlighting emerging geopolitical trends around the world.

Spiritual Warfare follow-up, part 2 Well, unless something completely unforeseen comes up, this is the last program dealing with Spiritual Warfare. In this week's program Jim Osman, author of Truth or Territory, and I pick up where we left off last week: reading some of your feedback and answering your questions. Jim and I have enjoyed this series with you and thank you for listening. We trust that this series was helpful to you and we thank you for tuning in. Lord willing, Jim will be my guest in some future programs as well. I'm sure you join me in extending sincere appreciation to Jim for helping us understand this issue with biblical clarity.

An Empty Christmas (Philippians 2:5-8)

God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! One way that Whitcomb Ministries explains that theme on this weekly broadcast, “Encounter God’s Truth,” is by answering questions. This week special guest speaker Ken Ham is going to address some very profound questions, such as: How do we share the gospel with today’s culture? Do people in our postmodern world understand what we mean when we talk about concepts such as God, sin, salvation, heaven and hell? And how can we show them that the Bible is grounded in real history? Ken Ham is the president of Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter, and we so appreciate Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, Wisconsin, for allowing us to broadcast his message called, “The Seven C’s of History.” Host Wayne Shepherd and Bible teacher Dr. John Whitcomb end the program with the conclusion of a talk about the importance of the doctrine of the pre-tribulational rapture. We trust that this week’s program will be a blessing and encouragement to you!

On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has a conversation with Dave James about Planned Parenthood and their selling of "body parts" of un-born babies. These video tapes, that have been in the news the last several weeks, of personnel from Planned Parenthood selling "body parts" from these babies to those who have an agenda for these human organs that is contrary to Biblical Principle. Jimmy and Dave will also talk about the founder of PP and her connection to Hitler.

THE SHADOW COUNCIL AT A JESUIT UNIVERSITY: Chris discusses the latest development from the so-called "shadow council" that gathered Catholic prelates and theologians at a Jesuit university in Rome. The Catholic News Agency reports that the representatives of this mysterious group are promoting homosexuality and contraception, while at the same time denying that any acts are "intrinsically evil." The council met to discuss their goals for the next Synod on the Family to be held later this year, in October 2015. Now that SCOTUS has approved of homosexual "marriage," will the Vatican be next? Chris also discusses the new proposal for a Convention of States and why many critics believe it is a terrible idea.

Jim had plenty of information to pass along to listeners on another edition of the Crosstalk News Round-Up & Comment. Stories included: --The Senate will be voting Monday on a new bill that will totally defund Planned Parenthood (S-1881). --President Obama's top spokesman said that there's essentially no evidence that Planned Parenthood acted in an unethical manner by selling body parts of aborted babies so there's no reason to defund Planned Parenthood. --President of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, has made personal visits to the White House 39 times since the President took office. --More black babies aborted than born in New York City in 2013. --A pro-Life website is slamming Jeb Bush for his years as head of philanthropy for the Bloomberg Family Foundation that grants millions of dollars to support abortion worldwide.
