Part 3: Liberalism hiding as evangelicalism. Topic: Hear an audio clip of Steve Childers declaring the need to make the invisible kingdom visible through a cultural mandate. The Bible does not teach that Christians are to build a physical kingdom. The Lord God will bring His kingdom. Topic: Hear Childers declare that Luke 4:18-19 is not spiritual talk but literal when Jesus talks of ending oppression as we preach the gospel to the poor. However, the Greek word for poor in this verse gives us a clue that this is not referring to the working poor but indeed the spiritually poor and spiritually depraved and bankrupt. Topic: If Luke 4:18-19 is physical and not spiritual then what about the verse 18 that speaks of giving sight to the blind. Are these men that are calling for a culture mandate going to start healing the blind while they end poverty and crime? They cannot claim spiritual in one line and physical when it fits their liberal agenda. There must be a proper understanding of the context and proper rules of hermeneutics. Topic: How is this message of the reconstructionist and cultural reformer that calls for using the gospel to give material wealth and wellbeing to everyone really any different than that of the Word of Faith false teachers? Topic: Hear Tim Keller declare that we are not to be poor but we are also not to be rich. Who is going to set that salary cap and what is the correct salary cap? Who determines what is rich; the political and religious elite? How is this not socialism? Topic: How is the message of the cultural reformers any different than the economic and social agenda of the far left and their community organizers? Topic: Why is the message of the cultural reformers really an attack on the gospel and the New Testament Church? Topic: Our phone lines light up with great callers.

Dr. E. Calvin Beisner is the founder and national spokesman of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. He is an interdisciplinary scholar specializing on the application of biblical worldview, theology and ethics to economics, environmental stewardship, political philosophy, public policy and apologetics. Dr. Beisner has testified as an expert witness on the theology, ethics, science and economics of climate change policy before the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and the Energy and Environment Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce. This broadcast began with Jim mentioning how the U.N. is showing scary videos about climate change disasters that could happen in 2050. Dr. Beisner noted that what's so ironic about this is that if they're showing the videos now, the disasters they're predicting have to be already happening which means they're not the result of any climate change that happens between now and 2050.

Supernatural–Part 1
Do you believe in the supernatural? If you believe in God, you believe in supernatural things. God does great supernatural things. The Book of Jonah reminds us who God is and it shows us this miracle where God soverignly appoints the fish to rescue Jonah. Some liberals like William Barclay try to explain everything naturally, and ignore the supernatural–what are the problems with this thinking? Listen in to find out!

Jimmy DeYoung has two of his Broadcast Partners with him today on PTIB. Jimmy will speak with Dr Rob Congdon who will give us an up-date on the events of the European Union. The EU is a key region that fits into the end of times scenario in Bible Prophecy. But first Jimmy will discuss the "true face" of Islam with Usama Dacdok. Usama was born in Egypt and has great insight into the "world of Islam".

We’ve all seen the cartoons in which the devil whispers in one ear, and an angel whispers in the other. The implication is that choosing sin means happiness, and saying “no” means a humdrum existence. In this message we’ll combat another lie about God.

Dr. Erwin Lutzer is the Senior Pastor of the Moody Church in Chicago having served there since 1980. He is an award-winning author of more than 30 books. His latest book is entitled, 'The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent'. It's subtitle is 'An informed response to Islam's war with Christianity.' Dr. Lutzer discovered something interesting when he went to Asia Minor (Today's nation of Turkey) to visit the seven cities that had churches to whom Jesus dictated letters in the book of Revelation. What he discovered is that there are no visible churches but there are mosques everywhere. Previous to that he had been in Istanbul. While there, a devout Muslim guide told him that Islam's ability to replace the church is proof of its superiority as a religion. Dr. Lutzer asked God for wisdom regarding any lessons that these non-existent churches might be communicating to the American church. He feels that within an hour, the Lord had given him 8 or 9 lessons that became the seed for his book. 'The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent' goes beyond the obvious terrorist threat and deals with the intrusion of Islam in America and its efforts to use the freedoms evoked in our Constitution to actually destroy the Constitution. On this Crosstalk you'll learn about the 'faces' of Islam, the purpose and significance of mosques within Islamic culture, the phenomenon of “Chrislam”, how Luther felt about encroaching Islam and much more.

Theo Friesen Interview
Pastor Mike interviews Theo Friesen on today’s show. Theo grew up in Germany and is a graduate of the EBTC. Listen in as Theo talks about his ministry, his testimony, and the culture of the state church in Germany.

On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung talks with Winkie Medad, the former Mayor of Shilo, Israel. Winkie has great insight into the media and politic arenas and will bring to our attention information that we need to better understand how current events are preparing this world for the end time events foretold in Bible Prophecy. Jimmy and Winkie will discuss French Jews considering the possibility of immigrating to Israel; Turkish President Erdogan attacking Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and the Palestinians depicting the PM as a Nazi officer.

Grace Mally has been involved in youth discipleship ministry. She and her family have a ministry called Tomorrow's Forefathers, with the goal of equipping families to be grounded in the Word and fruitful for Christ's kingdom. She, along with her older siblings coauthored, 'Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends'. She also enjoys arranging witnessing and outreach events in her community and speaks at family conferences. Her latest book is, 'Will Our Generation Speak? A Call to be Bold with the Gospel'. Grace began by noting how the Bible says all of us are responsible for communicating the gospel so no one can say we don't have the gift to share God's Word. Nonetheless, many Christians have concerns about their part in this process. For example, someone might say...'I just can't do it.' Or maybe your response might be, 'I don't have the right personality for this.' Gospel sharing is not dependent upon personality but obedience. In fact, as Grace noted, sometimes a quiet person is actually a very effective witness for the gospel because such individuals tend to listen, and are calm and natural with people.

Tim Keller and his Liberalism that is masquerading as evangelicalism. (Part Two) Topic: Your eschatology (end-time view) drives your theology as well as your ecclesiology (your view as to the calling of the church). Topic: Hear audio clips of Tim Keller declaring that it is the calling of the church to end poverty. Why is this not true? Topic: Keller quotes Old Testament scripture to make his case but the context is the theocracy of Israel and not the New Testament church. What is the difference between the calling of Israel in the Old Testament and the calling of the Church in the New Testament? Topic: Keller lectures those that own a store in a poor neighborhood and make money off the poor but don’t live in the poor neighborhood. Does Keller not realize that it is the businessman that has a business in the poor neighborhood that is putting his capital at risk to offer a service to the poor? It seems as though Tim Keller is promoting class warfare and envy. Would Keller prefer that the poor have to drive 20 miles to the suburbs to buy a gallon of milk and a bag of bread? Topic: Keller then declares that the world throws away the poor. That is not true. In fact, at the time this program is being broadcast in 2015, almost 50% of Americans are on some kind of entitlement program. In reality it is a very small percentage of Americans that actually work hard every day and pay taxes so many people that are not working can have free healthcare, food, housing, clothes, and an Obama cell phone. How then are Americans throwing away the poor? Why does Keller seem determined to promote the economic philosophy of Karl Marx yet call himself a pastor or evangelical? Topic: We take your calls.

We’re running a lap of life’s race asking this question, “Did the Fall ruin God’s plans?” The answer has to be “no,” because nothing can ruin God’s plans. What are the implications for you and for me?

To Cliche or not to Cliche–Part 1
Welcome Tuesday Guy! Pastor Mike and Pastor Steve take a look at Christian cliches today. Listen in as they look at the blog post titled “Ten Cliches Christians Should Neve Use.”

Consider the possibility that the fall of mankind was planned from the beginning. Could God have wanted Eve to pick that fatal fruit? Join us on a mind-expanding journey into God’s intentions for the new human race, a journey that may not go where you think.
