Revealing the Truth About Islam (#878)

 

Stand by for a Middle East News Up-date from Dave Dolan, who will be reporting to Jimmy DeYoung, host of Prophecy Today Intelligence Briefing. These two men will discuss the Iranian General who is forming an Iranian militia, the Shite Liberation Army", with the purpose of destroying the Jewish State of Israel; a poll in Israel that says the Jews fear the Palestinians; Israelis reject a Palestinian State; and the Mufti of Jerusalem says that every centimeter of Jerusalem is Islamic.

We may appreciate those who serve, but few of us want to be servants. Let’s chart a new course–becoming like Christ, the ultimate Servant. Grab a towel and be prepared to serve as we encounter lesson number one in developing the heart of Jesus.

David Brown is pastor of the First Baptist Church of Oak Creek, WI. He holds a Masters Degree in Theology and PhD in History, specializing in the history of the English Bible.  He is also the President of Logos Communication Consortium, a research organization that produces a large variety of materials warning Christians of present dangers in our culture.

Since the late 1990’s the first Harry Potter book was released and immediately began to lure young and old alike.  There is a whole new generation being drawn into Harry Potter, with people of all ages being caught up in it.  There are even Harry Potter Legos for children ages 1-4, plus lures for toddlers, teens and adults.  More than 50 apps are available for smart phones.  Through the years many books were written followed by movie releases.  The 8th book was released in July, 2016, “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” a play based on a story that J.K. Rowling helped write.  Not only are non-Christians being lured by the Harry Potter phenomena, but even Christians are being totally absorbed into its clutches.  Is this just harmless fantasy?

Pastor Brown issues a warning, because even after all these years, Harry Potter is luring young people into the exploration of witchcraft, sorcery and the occult.  He points out that each new book becomes “darker”, which means that it delves more and more into the demonic activities of the occult world.  He gives many examples of the kinds of depravity that are being depicted--and thus promoted--in these books and movies.  The author, J.K. Rowling, apparently has researched the occult extensively, as the occult aspects of the Harry Potter stories are accurate.  Rowling admits that two thirds of the content of these books come directly from the occult.  Potions, deadly curses, spells, divination, and communicating with the dead are just a few of the areas that are now being explored by Harry Potter fans around the world--many of them young children!

Many claim that it is just fiction, much like fairy tales, science fiction, or fantasy stories, and that at least it gets children reading.  But the question is not “are they reading”, but “what are they reading”.

As the program continues, the Harry Potter belief systems and doctrines are compared with Scripture, which warns believers to have no fellowship with the works of darkness.  Both the Old and New Testaments warn against demonic practices--and when people came to faith in Christ, they destroyed their occult books and paraphernalia.  In the New Testament, when demon-possessed people were confronted by Christ, and later by the Apostles, the demons were cast out, rescuing those people from such possession.

But Harry Potter fails the test of Scripture.  Instead of condemning that which is evil, Harry Potter, according to Pastor Brown, could serve as a primer for learning the occult.  While Christians can no longer be possessed by demons, there is are clear warnings to believers who try to include occult practices in their Christian life, to abstain from even the appearance of evil, and to give no place to the Devil.

Pastor Brown says that wrong is wrong, no matter how attractively it is packaged in cartoons, games, apps, books, movies, etc., and the only proper response for Christians is the same as that described in the Book of Acts, to destroy anything associated with it.

The guest has written a research booklet on Harry Potter, with nine principles on determining what is acceptable and what should be avoided.

Callers had questions not only on Harry Potter, but on other aspects of the occult such as Ouija Boards, Native American ceremonies, the Hunger Games, among others.

Do Not Hinder Them, part 25

So, when is the appropriate age to consider baptism? The Bible does not give us a specific age, but given the weight of the biblical evidence against baptizing children, I would argue for around age twenty. I know, I know - it sounds very high. But we will discuss today why I think baptizing anyone under age twenty should rarely be done.

Part Two on Burning Man. Today Brannon continues to explain the worldview behind Burning Man that is taking place now with over 65,000 people in the desert of Nevada. There are numerous other such festivals and events. We also hear from a father that has a daughter that has attended the Burning Man event in Nevada.

Should Christians Be Proud of America (Part One)

Worldview Radio Hour: Program #41

Originally Aired: SEPTEMBER 1, 2015

Dr. John Whitcomb joins us for another installment of Ask Dr. John. Question: How can our great country ever be united when we as Christians have so many denominations, tenets and beliefs all from the same Bible? It seems that Christians cannot even unite themselves. Question: Can you explain more about Goliath and his brothers? Question:I have heard David referred to as a priest/king and heard it said that he was a type of Christ in this way (cf. Zech. 6:12-13). Is this correct, and how can I better understand this? Question: Matthew 24:19 confuses me. Wouldn’t those who are pregnant or that have children already be raptured before the Tribulation? Question: Please explain 2 Corinthians 5:8. Question: Who were the best dispensational teachers of the past? Question: Could the anti-Christ be a Muslim? Question: Can a person know that he is saved forever even if there is no evidence in his life? Is he still saved eternally? Question: What does Scripture say about slanderous statements against a Christian who has departed to be with Christ made by someone who also claims to be a Christian? Topic: We take your calls.

Revealing the Truth About Islam (#877)

Today on PTIB we go to Washington to Ken Timmerman, on the "catbird seat", and Ken will give Jimmy DeYoung a geo-political prospective to the end of times scenario found in Bible Prophecy. Jimmy and Ken will discuss the Iranian war-ships attacking US Warships under American flags; Turkey warns Syrian Kurds to move to the East oI the River Euphrates; the Turkey-Iran-Russian connection; ex-Commander of a major  commando unit  in Iran is forming an elite commando unit called "Shite Liberation Army": Ahmedinejad, a former President of Iran, is planning a come-back, this time to finish the job of wiping Israel off the face of the Earth.

Savoy Confession
Is there anything good in Congregationalism?

Often the most radiant believers are the ones who suffer the most. The Holy Spirit shines in the lives of many whose road has been hard. Let’s take a final look at the work and ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer.

Do Not Hinder Them part 24

There is a passage of Scripture that gives us a remarkable insight into so much of what we have been discussing in this series. It is not a passage commonly thought of in these terms but it is truly insightful. Join me today as we look at what Daniel 1 has to say about childhood conversion. 

 

Jimmy DeYoung and Dave James have their weekly conversation today on PTIB. They will discuss how the Church is turning against the Jewish State of Israel; how a number of Church Councils have made these decisions during Church Conferences; they are calling Israel "colonialist" , occupiers of the land called Palestine, which has never been a real state in our world; and the Church Councils have basically made decisions that are "anti-Semetic".

Host Wayne Shepherd takes us back to our very first radio program in this special edition of “Encounter God’s Truth.”

It was a program that was drawn from the book of Acts and entitled, “The Beginning of Something New.” This series was meant to explain the motivation behind our new radio outreach, and you may have expected our speaker, Dr. John Whitcomb, to share his vision for the broadcast in that first message. But—in typical fashion—he jumped right into explaining the powerful section of Scripture that we focused on in Acts 1.

We are currently “Celebrating Five Years of EGT” in a special anniversary series—this week offering thanksgiving for “The Goodness of God.”

Wayne adds a few additional thoughts about our history, and closes the program with a question for Dr. Whitcomb about God the Father’s role in the discussion in Acts 1.

How we rejoice in the opportunity that the Lord has given us for five years—to meet with you weekly and share the message that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end!
