Bakers Dozen Of Legalisms (Part 4)

Jimmy DeYoung and Dave James will have their weekly conversation on an issue that needs Biblical understanding in order for the Christian to make sense of the issue, and how to apply the Biblical concepts for living out our lives. This week Jimmy and Dave will discuss the fact that "extremism" is not only a problem in the Middle East and Europe, but also in India. Dave will explain why the national religion of India, Hinduism, is also an extreme religion. Another fact to note from the conversation is the large number of Muslims that live in India.

The world is asking, 'What are we going to do with the Syrian/Islamic refugees? There are concerns that ISIS may use this situation as cover to infiltrate nations with the goal of jihad and establishing a caliphate. Are such concerns valid or are they an over-reaction? Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Shahram Hadian. Shahram is the founder of the Truth in Love Project Ministry. He was born in Iran, is a former Muslim and is now a Christian Pastor and former candidate for governor of the State of Washington. Shahram speaks on the critical issues facing this nation and warns of the true goal of Islam and the threat of Shariah. What was the catalyst that produced these refugees in the first place? Some claim that ISIS is to blame. According to Shahram, the CIA was training and even supporting the so-called moderate rebels that ended up becoming ISIS. The strife between them and the Assad regime is said to be causing what some refer to as a civil war. Looking at Europe, Shahram believes that Islamic immigrants have had such an impact that Muslims have gained the upper hand and are now declaring the continent to be in the upper house of Islam (Dar al-Islam). In other words, European nations thought that Muslims would come in and assimilate and co-exist. It's been just the opposite due to Islam's belief in segregation in order to gain strength as practiced by Mohammed. The latest wave (possibly as many as 100,000 of which could be coming to the U.S.) is not comprised of families but of young males which makes one wonder, is this migration or an invasion? It would seem to be the latter when you consider that our own FBI has testified before Congress that the internment camps where the refugees are have been infiltrated by the jihadi. Have you ever wondered why our government and the media seem to avoid the phrase, 'Islamic terrorism' when it comes to explaining the incidents such as those at Fort Hood, the attack on Pamela Geller's conference and the Chattanooga shooting? Why is there no cry of 'separation of church and state' over the use of taxpayer dollars to pay interfaith churches and organizations that are encouraging an even greater flow of refugees to the U.S.? Do these organizations have a plan for evangelism or even assimilation? Who is responsible for the vetting process. Does it take place before the refugees reach our shores? These and other questions are answered on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

These days, if you claim to have the truth, those around you will be offended. And when you say that Jesus is the truth, people become unglued. Is it worth it? Is Jesus actually the only way to God?

Beware of The Dogs (Phillipians 3:1-3)

Responding to Foolish Statements -Part 2 In part 2 of “Responding to Foolish Statements,” Mike answers the following challenges: Why are Christians against a woman’s right to choose (abortion)? Why are Christians so intolerant of other viewpoints? We shouldn’t teach creation because it is too divisive. God could have used evolution. Life must be on other planets. It’s arrogant to believe we are the only life in the Universe. The Bible is not real history. It is just a book of fiction and fairy tales.

Listen in as a very special lady shares regarding a trial she's going through that most of us can't imagine going through ourselves. Listen as she will rehearse the faithfulness of God along with some personal questions for her from Susan.

Is your narrative and worldview standing on solid ground? In this week’s boralogue, John shows that because freedoms of speech, religion, and conscience are under attack in the West, we need to know who we are and what we believe. Rooting ourselves in God’s Truth will prepare us for the spiritual battles plaguing our freedoms and will allow us to endure when the battle is over. We need to put on the full armor of God and take our stand. There are differences between not only Christianity and other religions but also within Christian sects. Bodie Hodge (, Speaker and Writer for Answers in Genesis, analyzes these differences by looking at worldviews from a religious perspective, what we base our beliefs on, and the importance of the authority of God’s Word. Assaults on freedom of religion will have an impact on the economy and business. Bill Walton (, Chairman of Rappahannock Ventures and host of On Common Ground, looks at new rights trumping old ones with recent court rulings, faith institutions under attack, and shows that we need to be educated in both history and current events in order to stand up under religious persecution. Finally we are joined by Paul House (, Professor of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School, who reviews the seminary formation Dietrich Bonhoeffer required of his students, which was a radical departure from the norms of his day and based on a dedication to the Word of God as pertinent for each of his students, rather than something merely of academic interest. There is no Section 6 intelligence brief this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We will return next week with important geopolitical stories. Please like us on Facebook at the Steel on Steel page and remember to join Praying for Persecuted Christians on Facebook as well for the latest information concerning Christians suffering for their faith around the world.

Today on PTIB we have a shocking report from Itamar Marcus, Director of Palestinian Media Watch, on what the Palestinian media is really saying to their people. Itamar will be interviewed by Jimmy DeYoung, the host of PTIB. Jimmy and Itamar will discuss the Palestinian leaders blaming Israel for the Paris terrorist attacks, not IS; the Palestinian Authority has produced a music video that praises martyrdom during a shooting attack; and Palestinian children have a right to throw stones at Jews.

Joseph could have been king—if the history of the nation of Judah had gone much differently! This week on "Encounter God's Truth" we begin our preparations for the Christmas season with a series on “The Fears and Faith of Joseph.” Theologian Dr. John Whitcomb will begin by rehearsing the historical background that led to the intriguing situation that unfolded around Jesus’ birth concerning the earthly father who adopted Him. After the sermon, host Wayne Shepherd asks Dr. Whitcomb how he thinks that Joseph would have handled life as a poor, humble carpenter—knowing that he could have been king of Israel. Was he was completely surprised to find that the Messiah King would be born in his home? God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! May it guide us this Advent and Christmas season.

When a potter throws clay on the wheel, that clay has no choice about what it’s going to become. As the Potter, God is in charge of us—the clay. He has a purpose we can’t see, a purpose that takes us through the fire so that we are suitable for His service.

ISAIAH, EZEKIEL & THE NEWS Chris discusses certain prophecies in Isaiah and Ezekiel, comparing them with what's happening in the news today. Could the current events in the Middle East be leading towards the Gog and Magog invasion of Israel? What is the significance of the conflict between Russia and Turkey? Is our generation witnessing the groundwork for Armageddon?

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.

Propitiation (Part 2): Propitiation or expiation? Does it matter? Who propitiates? Is propitiation a pagan concept? Must God’s wrath be assuaged?
