Topic: Hear shocking audio clips of Todd Friel declaring that the Catholic Inquisition killed only 3,000 people over 600 years. This is the same liberal line his friends at American Family Radio Network, which carries his program, were spouting a few days ago on the Facebook page of one of their radio hosts. Why would Todd Friel say something that is historically documented as being false? As we have discussed many times before, the Church of Rome slaughtered 50 million Christians over 600 years and not 3,000 as Todd reports. Dr. David Plaisted documents the 50 million figure in his 84 page report that is online for free. Dr. Plaisted has many sources that document this figure of 50 million. Topic: Todd also says he is not defending this branch of Christianity that carried out the Inquisition. This sounded like Todd was saying that Catholicism was a branch of Christianity, which it is not. Topic: Todd says that there were 150,000 trials during the inquisition but only 3,000 killed. These figures do not even pass the smell test and should reveal to Todd that his reporting is flawed. This would mean that the Church of Rome only convicted about 2% of those they put on trial for heresy and 98% they set free. Topic: Todd says that part of the Inquisition was being carried out by the Church of Rome against Catholics that were not practicing Catholicism correctly, and the Inquisition was more of an in-house event. Topic: Todd says the Inquisition was not a reign of terror per se. Tell that to the 50 million Christians killed that included people that were burned alive and buried alive. Todd might want to become less of a comedian and more of a researcher if he is going to cover such topics. Topic: Chris and Brannon discuss why these comments by Todd are very troubling. Topic: We take your calls.

Ken Blackwell is a former mayor of Cincinnati and former Ohio Secretary of State. He is a Policy Board member of the American Civil Rights Union. When compared to what President Obama has done for Gay Pride Month and the efforts to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, Black History Month seems to be under a kind of betrayal according to Ken. Ken noted how during this Black History Month, the top issue on the White House agenda has been the granting of deportation amnesty to illegal aliens. The President has also been working hard to give legal status, work permits, driver's licenses, Social Security numbers and even back income to immigrants/aliens with apparently no serious consideration as to how this will affect black Americans. Ken described how illegals cross the border and compete for scarce jobs on the lowest rung of the economic ladder. In the end Ken feels this is a direct and political effort by the President to grow the ranks of those who are dependent on big government therefore growing the ranks of those who are likely to vote for the party of big government.

Race And Evangelicalism How should Christians think about race? How does redemption factor into dealing with discrimination? James 2 is a challenge to the heinous sin of partiality.

The affordable care Act mandates that people buy health insurance. Complicating matters is the rules and requirements that these policies must provide. Then there's the EPA rules that control everyone's personal property to such a degree that even ditches and storm water culverts are sometimes considered to be waterways. There's also the control over food where the wife of the President has her hand in affecting school lunch menus or government mandated labeling of factors such as calorie content. The airline industry has its intrusive body scans and enhanced pat-downs of passengers. The latest item that Washington is attempting to add to the list is control over the Internet by treating it as a public utility. Joining Vic to discuss this was James Gattuso. He handles regulatory and telecommunications issues at the Heritage Foundation and is a senior research fellow at the Foundation's Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies. From 1990-1993 he was the deputy chief at the Federal Communications Commission's office of plans and policy. Net neutrality refers to the idea that all the content on the Internet should be treated the same way. While on the surface this may sound reasonable, the American marketplace provides varying levels of choice in areas such as technical and pricing option categories and James argues that the Internet should be no different. While James doesn't see a conscious plan to censor speech or control content via net neutrality legislation, he does believe it sets the stage for that and puts the FCC and the federal government in what he referred to as 'the critical path' for approving what is transmitted via the Internet. Where does Congress and President Obama stand on this issue? Does the impetus for net neutrality legislation involve purely practical considerations or is there a political element? Is there any merit to FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai's allegation that the FCC is misleading the public about the plan? If these rules stand, what will be the impact on the Internet here is America? These and other questions are discussed on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

ISLAM, ANTICHRIST & THE REFORMATION Chris discusses some of the current news on Islamic Jihad impacting the world today, as he reviews the history of Islam and how it was viewed by the Reformers. What did men like Luther and Calvin believe about Islam? And did the Reformers view the great terrors of the Turk as the fulfillment of Bible prophecy?

The miracles of Jesus transcended time and space. He spoke, and it was done, whether right in front of Him or twenty miles away. In this message we’ll consider the power and glory of miracles done at a distance, miracles that should indeed be convincing.

That Is NOT In The Bible–Part 2 Was Jesus poor? Was He married? Is gambling prohibited? Should we dress up for church? Mike and Steve continue discussing an article called “67 Surprising Things Not Found in the Bible“.

Jimmy DeYoung has a Middle East News Up-date on PTIB with Dave Dolan reporting. Jimmy and Dave, both journalist in the Middle East with a combined 58 years of experience, will discuss the fact that Hamas and Iran have renewed ties - that is bad for the Israeli's; the United States is withholding information on the US-Iranian nuclear talks from Israel and the Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Ya'alon says that Iran has "Apocalyptic Messianic" ambitions.

When Jesus turned water into wine at a wedding party, He took the least and made it into the best. In this message we’ll continue to look at Christ’s first miracle at Cana, one of many proving He was and is the Son of God.

Mike talks about the most influential false teachers in the world today and why they are so successful in deceiving so many. Why are the warnings about false teachers in the Bible being ignored? Why are people so gullible? Why does the good Shepherd allow wolves around His sheep?

Future For Israel–Part 2 Pastor Mike continues preaching this recent sermon from Romans 11. Follow along as Pastor Mike gives us three glorious truths about the future for national ethic Israel. These truths should increase our trust in God’s promise and invoke our praise.

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung catches Ken Timmerman somewhere in down-town Washington. Earlier Ken had a meeting at the State Department and then made time to discuss geo-political events around our world with Jimmy. They discussed the beheading of 21 Coptic Christians from Egypt., this barbaric act at the hands of Islamic State in Libya; they also talked about the 45 people burned alive by IS in Iraq and they returned to Libya to speak about IS in Libya, a "gate way into Europe".
