Guest: Mike Riddle. Topic: Evidence for the world-wide flood and why it matters. The Flood and the Bible Many Christians do not see the Flood as an important part of Scripture. As a result many simply believe, as the world believes, that the Genesis Flood was a local flood. However, when we read Scripture the words used to describe the Flood clearly indicate it was a worldwide flood. In this session we examine what it would mean if the Flood was a local flood. For example, if the Flood was local, then God would have repeatedly broken His promise of never again destroying the world by such a flood. If the Flood was local, then why did Noah have to build an Ark? We read in Scripture that the writers of the New Testament believed in the historical fact of the Flood. Finally, if the Flood was local and not worldwide, we undermine the foundation for the Gospel of Jesus Christ by denying that death was the result of sin.

On PTIB today, Ken Timmerman will give us insight into geo-political events around this world as he has a conversation with Jimmy DeYoung, the Host of PTIB. These two will discuss the fact that IS is calling for the Muslim Brotherhood to take up arms against Egyptian President Al Sisi; IS now has the late Col Quadiffia's chemical weapons; Iraq has a record oil output which is wrecking the global banking system; and with the 5th Anniversary of the Arab Spring in Egypt, which brought the Muslim Brotherhood to power, remembered last week, they say it could happen again.

With technology seemingly omnipresent, how should believers renounce loving the world? Should we permanently unplug from the internet? Should we toss out our TVs? Let’s take another positive step in the ongoing battle for our hearts and minds.

Yesterday President Obama made his first known visit during his presidency to a U.S. mosque. In this case his visit was to the Islamic Center of Baltimore. In attendance was the honor guard made up of Muslim boy scouts who brought in the U.S. and Maryland flags before leading the audience in the Pledge of Allegiance followed by the recitation of the Qur'an. Should we be alarmed by this or is it simply another example of the free exercise of religion? Joining Jim to examine that question and much more was Usama Dakdok. Usama is the founder and director of the Straightway of Grace Ministry equipping Christians to be effective witnesses of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors, as well as ministering to Muslims directly. Usama is Egyptian born. He studied Islam and Islamic law since a young age. Usama has translated the Qur'an into English. He's the speaker on the program, 'Revealing the Truth About Islam' which airs daily on VCY America. Jim presented information from The Daily Caller indicating that The Islamic Center of Baltimore 'has deep extremist ties' including the Muslim Brotherhood. It's a member of the network of mosques controlled by the Islamic Society of North America, a Muslim civil rights group named as the unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror case. The majority of the program featured Usama responding to numerous 'facts' from President Obama's nearly 45 minute speech given during his visit to the Islamic Center: --Islam has a message of peace. --Islam has roots in a commitment to compassion, mercy, justice and charity. --Islam has always been part of America. --Muslim-Americans are our neighbors, teachers, doctors, scientists, and entrepreneurs. --Muslim Americans keep us safe. They are part of our police, firefighters, homeland security and in our intelligence community. --The overwhelming majority of the world's Muslims embrace Islam as a source of peace. It is undeniable that a small fraction of Muslims propagate a perverted interpretation. --Groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIL are not the first extremists in history to misuse God's name. --We're all God's children; Christians, Jews and Muslims. Usama's responses to these statements from President Obama underscore earlier comments where Usama described how the only people that have benefited from 9-11 are the Muslims. Why? They killed 3,000 Americans yet have become the victims of the attack while at the same time they build large numbers of houses of worship and are allowed into America as students and refugees in ever greater numbers.

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has two of his Broadcast Partners joining him in conversations that will reveal very important information about current events that may well be setting the world stage for the prophetic scenario found in Bible Prophecy. Jimmy will talk with Mike Gendron about the Iranian President Rouhani visiting Pope Francis at the Vatican. But first Jimmy will get an EU update from Dr Rob Gongdon and find out about the threat of a mass terrorist attack by Islamic State in Europe.

THE POPE APOLOGIZES TO PROTESTANTS Chris discusses a series of apologies given by Pope Francis to the Protestant communities. In particular, Francis offered an apology to the Waldensian Church -- that was persecuted for centuries by Rome, with a haunting massacre in 1655 that was immortalized in a poem by John Milton. The current dialogue of the Pope stands in stark contrast to a previous apology given by Pope John Paul II in the year 2000, which was questioned by some. What is the difference today? And does such an acknowledgment of wrong-doing, (however sincerely intended) amount to the possibility of ecumenical unity? Or are the conflicting doctrines concerning the Gospel an impassible barrier between Evangelicals and Rome?

First John 2 says, “If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” Here is a look at the great divide we all face, as the media and the internet assault us with a deluge of impurity.

Many parents assume when they drop off their children at school that their youngsters are being prepared for college or a career or just for life in general. Sadly, in many cases, children are being indoctrinated in a worldview that is in contrast to the one parents are attempting to communicate at home. The guest on this Crosstalk co-wrote a book that reveals how the architects of America's public schools have implemented a plan to socialize the U.S. by knowingly and willingly dumbing-down the population. Joining Jim for this discusses was Alex Newman. Alex is an international journalist, educator and consultant. He has a degree in journalism from the University of Florida and has worked for numerous publications. He is the co-author of the book 'Crimes of the Educators'. It's subtitle is, 'How Utopians Are Using Government schools to Destroy America's Children'. The book is co-authored with Dr. Samuel Blumenfeld. Many listeners are aware of the term 'utopians' as it pertains to individuals who believe we must use the coercive power of government to reform humanity. Alex talked about one particular utopian ('progressives' as they are often known today) named John Dewey. Dewey is considered to be the founding father or 'godfather' of progressive education. In spite of the fact that so many public schools are named after him, his specific goal was to overturn the foundations of the U.S. as we know it (religious liberty, private property and Christianity as the bedrock of society) and move us toward a communist society. Dewey felt that in order to transform America, you have to reduce the literacy of the American people. He received money from the Rockefeller Education Foundation to do the experiments and to gradually take over the teaching colleges, the publishing of books and eventually take over the government schools. Dewey's plan was so effective that half of America's adults are functionally illiterate. What are some of the accusations and crimes Alex lists against education? Alex discusses treason, child abuse (as seen via learn-to-read methods other than phonics and the pushing of psychiatric drugs on them) contributing to the delinquency of minors (sex education and anti-drug programs that actually encourage such behavior), the spiritual crime of destroying a child's belief in biblical religion and extortion (the paying of taxes with the promise that schools are actually educating your children).

No Compromise: Everis a group discussion covering various issues in evangelicalism. The show features Dr. Phil Johnson from PyroManiacs and Grace to You, Dr. James White from Alpha and Omega Ministries andThe Phoenix Reformed Baptist Church, Carl Truman from Westminster Theological Seminary, and Mike Abendroth from Bethlehem Bible Church and No Compromise Radio. Tune in today to listen to Part 2.

Topic: Moody Bible Institute at one time was perhaps THE standard of what a Bible college should be. Brannon talks about how he grew up with Moody Monthly Magazine and hearing their broadcasts on the radio. Brannon even had the honor of speaking to the students of Moody Bible College many years ago in their chapel service. Brannon is sad to report that this once great institution is now promoting a personal spiritual formation retreat. The retreat website calls for observing monastic prayer. Why would anyone study monastic prayer? If one wants to practice the spiritual formation of monks or nuns then why not go all the way and wear a robe and take a vow of poverty and celibacy? The website does not mention the Bible or Bible study even one time. Yet, the retreat website does mention silent, solitude, bringing Christ’s presence into one another’s personal stories. What does that even mean? Topic: What is the difference between community and Biblical fellowship? The Moody retreat website talks about community but community is not the same thing as fellowship and fellowship is only had around the Word of God and not around personal feelings and spiritual experiences that have roots in mysticism. Topic: Brannon begins the program by addressing the King James Only issue that was raised by a caller the day before. Why is the King James Only crowd wrong?Topic: We take your calls.

With the Iowa caucuses under way, the Presidential Campaign is off and running. Jimmy DeYoung and Dave James today have their weekly conversation, with a focus on "Evangelicals and the Presidential Campaign." CNN this last week divided up the Evangelical community into seven groups and did a commentary on each of the groups and who in the Christian world fits into each group. Dave will comment on each of the groups and then join Jimmy as they discuss endorsing candidates; what to look for in a candidate; and how to make a Biblical decision on whom to vote for in the Primary and the General election.

No Compromise Radio has a group discussion covering various issues in evangelicalism. The show features Dr. Phil Johnson from PyroManiacs and Grace to You, Dr. James White from Alpha and Omega Ministries and The Phoenix Reformed Baptist Church, Carl Truman from Westminster Theological Seminary, and Mike Abendroth from Bethlehem Bible Church and No Compromise Radio.

Since the release of the undercover Planned Parenthood videos last summer, there has been a revelation regarding a number of state universities involved in fetal tissue research. This is tissue that's been harvested, sold most times at a significant profit and sometimes only minutes old as it enters the lab. A number of states have proposed legislation to stop such activity while universities and medical institutions have denounced such legislation claiming that this research is critical to bring about the cures that have been sought for so long. How do we respond to that? Joining Jim to provide some answers was Dr. David Prentice. Dr. Prentice is the vice president and research director for the Charlotte Lozier Institute. He's an advisory board member for the Midwest Stem Cell Therapy Center. He established Stem Cell Research Facts, an educational website providing scientific facts and patient-centered videos about adult stem cells and is a founding member of 'Do No Harm: the Coalition of Americans for Research Ethics'. Dr. Prentice received his Ph.D. in biochemistry. What is a stem cell? Dr. Prentice described it as a cell that has 2 chief characteristics. It can keep growing and dividing. Also, if you give a stem cell an appropriate signal, it will specialize into any of the various tissues of the body. So there's great potential for stem cells to replace or repair damaged tissue. D. Prentice noted that if you've seen any of the videos from the Center for Medical Progress, several of them make reference to the desire to have a lot of liver. The reason for this request is that while a child is still in the womb it doesn't have bone marrow and the liver is where the stem cells are. So abortion providers looking for fetal livers are not really after liver but fetal stem cells. However, this is unethical because it requires the death of a young human being. Embryonic stem cells come from those even younger in development. But again, you have to destroy this young life (embryo) in order to harvest the stem cells for experiments. Both fetal stem cells and embryonic stem cells have not been successful at treating human injury and disease. Adult stem cells have been the 'gold standard' so far in terms of success. These cells are in your bone marrow, they're in your organs and you have them all of your life. In some cases they're a bit more limited in that they won't form every tissue in the body. However, some adult stem cells can form many kinds of tissues. The bottom line? According to Dr. Prentice, there was a paper published last year in the Journal of the American Medical Association that documented that as of December of 2012, over one-million people were successfully treated with adult stem cells around the world. Dr. Prentice noted that sometimes experts will take advantage of the lack of knowledge of others, calling some stem cells 'adult' when in fact they aren't. He recommends that anyone offered adult stem cells ask where they came from in case they aren't from your own body. How does the vaccine industry tie-in to this issue of stem cell and fetal tissue research? Since adult stem cells are the 'gold standard' and other types have been such a failure, why are universities often in opposition to legislation that would stop the harvesting of fetal and embryonic stem cells? These are just two critical questions that are answered on this Crosstalk broadcast.
