Under pressure from agenda-driven groups, what was once considered free speech is now considered a hate crime. In public schools, tax money is spent teaching our kids about various forms of sexuality. Is there a time to stand up and say “no”? The answer is “yes.”

Paul Popov is the CEO of Door of Hope International. Door of Hope is a voice and a helping hand to persecuted Christians worldwide. In 1948, when he was just five years old, his father, prominent Protestant minister Haralan Popov, was brutally taken from his family by the KGB and arrested on false charges of being a ‘spy for America.’ It was 15 years later that Paul saw his father again. Having grown up without a father in a communist nation, he was deprived of many things. The Popov family was branded as ‘enemies of the state.’

Paul began by discussing his recent visit to Bulgaria, a time of reflection and victory that lies in suffering for Christ because as he noted, the communists put many people to death.

What’s interesting is how he described his father’s ten-day trial under the communists. The New York Times, the BBC and others were actually invited to attend. That tells you the trial was different. It wasn’t to simply destroy the church. It was to destroy it, as Paul put it, ‘in a refined, modern, contemporary way by not killing them, but having them confess that they had done evil things.’ This was part of the communists cold-war propaganda attempt to blacken Christians so that no one would have anything to do with them.

One of the things that was done on Haralan’s birthday (March 7th) was to publish a book based upon secret police file evidence. This 500 page book tells how legally the trial looked very proper in terms of those involved; the prosecutors, the defense lawyers, etc. However, from the secret police documents, it was discovered that this proper formatting was all pre-determined in advance.

Paul described how this was the beginning of the propaganda war between East and West and two cultures, the Judeo-Christian worldview in the West vs. the communist/materialist worldview of atheism from the East.

Jim mentioned that very few university students are aware that communist concentration camps had existed in Bulgaria. Paul responded by noting that Bulgaria, like other Eastern European nations, is still facing the socialist/communist ideology. It’s permeated the nation in such a way that many are still indoctrinated in what Paul described as ‘that religion’ and therefore the people, ‘don’t see beyond their own internal cult.’

What one word caused communism to crumble? Is Paul optimistic that believers in Bulgaria will continue to have the freedom to worship? How are things going for Christians in Eastern Ukraine? What is his warning to America concerning socialism? Get the answers to these questions and hear what listeners had to say when you review this edition of Crosstalk.


Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has Dave James to join him at the Broadcast Table for their weekly conversation, discussing an issue that the Church must have a Biblical understanding of for their daily walk with the Lord. This time Jimmy and Dave will discuss the  attacks on the fast-food restaurant , Chik-Fil-A, and how this Christian-owned and operated business is coming under attack for their Biblical stands on "social issues" in our world today.

It looks like Cloward and Piven are bringing their strategy to our southern border.  In this week's boralogue, John looks at the reality on the border and how media and politicians are not accurately reporting on it.  The media in blue bubble land is working overtime to distract us from not only the border but also the Mueller report, spying on the Trump campaign, and FISA court controversies.  Don't let the powers that be steer the conversation because chances are it will be filled with inaccuracies and hypocrisy.


The media and leftists are still smarting from their 2016 election loss.  Will they learn from what happened?  Victor Davis Hanson (, Author and Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins us to discuss the factors that led to President Trump's election win, the pros and cons of his presidency thus far, and how liberals' actions and viewpoints today will most likely backfire come 2020.


Recent power outages in Venezuela have been blamed on either a poorly mismanaged grid system or an attempted cyber coup by the United States.  Michael Daugherty (, Author and CEO of LabMD, gives us his view on why the power is out in Venezuela and examines grid vulnerabilities here in the U.S. and the need to improve our cyber security.


John rounds out the show this week covering various important issues including free speech on college campuses, socialist promises from presidential candidates, and America's economic future with large amounts of unfunded liabilities.  We need leaders who will tell us the truth and lead us through the tough times ahead.


John’s quote of the week:    

"When you're in a paradigm shift, it goes through several different stages.  The first one, people think it's a bump in the road. The second one, it dawns on people that it isn't a bump but they try to evaluate things in the light of everything that came before.  In stage three,     there's a reconciliation in people's minds that it has changed and the rules are new rules."

We’re living in a time in which some people are taking the position that you can be true to identifying as a homosexual and at the same time be true to God, to Christianity, and to the teachings of Scripture. Churches which one time took positions in opposition to homosexuality and transgenderism are now removing their opposition and have become what some term, “opening and welcoming” on the subject allowing those who identify as being homosexual or transgender into their church membership and even into positions of authority in the church including that of the pastorate. Some are saying that you can even support homosexual marriage without betraying God. Churches that have not changed have been said to be unwelcoming, intolerant and even bigoted. The question is: What does the Bible have to say on the issue? Is there compatibility between identifying as LGBTQ and identifying as being a born-again Christian?

Joining Jim in discussion on this important topic was Dr. David Brown. Dr. Brown is the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Oak Creek, WI. He holds a Masters Degree in Theology and a PhD in History, specializing in the history of the English Bible. He’s 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.

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation has a booklet called, ‘Coming Home to Evangelicalism and to Self’. It addresses those that are living openly and also fully as a homosexual while at the same time being true to God and Christianity. It notes that evangelical LGBTQ individuals have been taught through the church that such relationships may be sinful yet these people of faith know deep within them that they were born that way. Is that true?

Dr. Brown began by telling the audience that God makes this very clear in Genesis where it says ‘…male and female created he them.’ You are either XX (female) or XY (male). He’s amazed at how many people are willing to put away science for feeling.

I Corinthians 6:9-11 says, ‘Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (the one who takes the female part in a homosexual relationship) nor abusers of themselves with mankind (that’s the one who takes the male part) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.’

The next part says, ‘And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of our Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.’

Dr. Brown described how in context this is not a one-time incident but rather a lifestyle involving these practices, so as far as being born that way is concerned, such individuals are deceived.

He admitted that when he was dating, he had the deep desire to have sexual relationships those girls he dated. He did not engage in that because the Bible says that activity is to be confined to the marriage relationship as I Corinthians 7 makes clear. So just because someone has the deep desire within themselves to engage in something doesn’t make it biblical. The born-again believer will instead put off the old man and put on the new man.

Can a person be both faithful to God and to the understanding of themselves as being LGBTQ?

On this point Dr. Brown looked to Jude 1:3 where it encourages us to earnestly contend for the faith that is once delivered to the saints. Then in Romans 1:25-27 it says, ‘Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.’ (or right)

So when God defines something as wrong, you can’t be faithful to Him and to your calling of what God says is the wrong kind of affection.

Dr. Brown let listeners know that Jesus never calls anyone to immorality. When he confronted the woman taken in adultery in John 8:11, Jesus told her to, ‘… go, and sin no more.’ God blesses repentance!

This covers just a portion of this broadcast and Dr. Brown covers a lot of Scripture as he deals with each of Jim’s points. Listeners were given an opportunity to have their say in the matter as well as the LGBTQ lifestyle and the Bible were contrasted on this edition of Crosstalk.

The government is encroaching on the Christian freedoms our country once had, favoring various political agendas which run contrary to God’s Word. When a country opposes the cross of Christ, what should believers do?

Guest: Rich Higgins and Chris Gaubatz. WVW-TV launches first show with host Chris Gaubatz as he interviews former National Security Council official Rich Higgins. Chris and Rich discuss the failed coup by the deep state against President Donald Trump. Chris & Rich discuss the Red thread running through the deep state as well as what the future holds in Americans do not awaken to the seriousness of the problem.

Christians around the world will remember the events of Palm Sunday in church this weekend. Do you think you know all about Jesus’ ride into Jerusalem nearly 2,000 years ago? In this edition of “Encounter God’s Truth,” our Bible teacher, Dr. John Whitcomb, is going to compare Scripture with Scripture to show us the true significance of aspects of this event that we often skip over. Since God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end, we must be mindful of even the smallest details when we study such an important topic. After the teaching segment of today’s holiday program, host Wayne Shepherd asks Dr. Whitcomb to explain what would have happened if the Jewish people had accepted Jesus’ offer to bring His Kingdom to Israel on that first Palm Sunday. We trust that this program will help you prepare for a very meaningful Easter season, and that you will find ways to share it with friends and loved ones.

Dr. Peter Pry reports to us from the airport as he departs from speaking at a national security conference in Wisconsin and flies to Canada to speak with lawmakers about EMP and infrastructure protection. In this broadcast Dr. Pry gives us a report on what the speakers covered at the national security conference, the myth of man-made global warming. and he finds time to tell us his thoughts on Muslim Brotherhood aligned U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar.

Remembering the Past - Anticipating the Future: From Truman to Israel. We are joined by David New (Constitutional Attorney). EJ Kimball (Senior Middle East Fellow, Center for a Secure Free Society; Israel Victory Project). Topics discussed include: Truman’s Relationship to God. Truman: The Role of Religion in America. ‘King Bibi Wins Re-election’. God at Work – in the Past – now – and in the Future

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has two of his Broadcast Partners at the Broadcast Table, both with very important reports. Jimmy and Col Bob Maginnis, from the Pentagon, will discuss Bob's report on NATO at its 70th anniversary, and its purpose for the future. But first, Jimmy will receive a European Union Up-date from John Rood, on Brexit; and the possibility of all members-states of the EU pulling out of the EU, leaving 10 member-states, a number that fits with the prophetic scenario found in Daniel 7:7.

Each of us is wired from birth to be selfish. Only the Spirit of God can change this, transforming our hearts so that we give ourselves to serve and bless others. In this message, we hear the story of a cab driver with a horrid past, a man who needed a friend.


Pope Francis recently spoke to a large audience of Catholics in Rome where he urged “solidarity” with Muslims, calling them “brothers and sisters” who believe in the same God of Abraham.  Strangely, the Pope seems to think little of the fact that Muslims openly deny that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Also discussed is an update on U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar who has been featured on the cover of Newsweek magazine, where she is said to be “Changing the conversation on Israel.”

Guest: Jimmy DeYoung. Topic: Prime Minister Netanyahu has been re-elected - but most world leaders have mixed emotions. Topic: The Israeli's have spoken in the elections - now the difficult task of beginning to form a government. Topic: An Arab NATO is in the making. Topic: John Bolton says that President Trumps peace plan will be published very soon. Topic: The Missouri legislature is preparing legislation that would protect the Second Amendment rights of its citizens and nullify any federal laws within its borders that would infringe on those rights. The law would also allow for state employees to be sued that violate the Second Amendment Rights of the citizens of Missouri. Brannon explains how this bill is defending not only the Second Amendment but also the Ninth and Tenth Amendments. Brannon explains why more states should follow the example of Missouri as well as pass laws that nullify Common Core, Agenda 2030, and federal laws that infringe on freedom of speech, freedom of religion, parental authority, private property, and the right to life. Topic: We take your calls.

Topic: College or no college? Today students have many choices from trade school, to being an entrepreneur and starting their own business to going to college. How is a student to decide? Brannon’s third child turned 16 today and it could not have come fast enough as his young son’s business is growing so fast he needs a truck for his equipment and to be able to go job to job without being chauffeured by his parents. Brannon talks about how his son is trying to use these early days of young adulthood to test the waters as to his future occupation and education or trade school or entrepreneurial track. Many parents are concerned for what is the best direction to encourage their children as more and more college graduates leave college with massive amounts of debt and in some cases a degree in a field of which they find they have no interest or in which the wages are depressed. Today Brannon offers some insight as to how to navigate these uncertain waters while discussing the advantages of being an entrepreneur in America and why Christians should be the best of all entrepreneurs. Topic: We take your calls.

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung will be joined at the Broadcast Table by Ken Timmerman with his report on geo-political events around the world that are current events that may well be setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled. Jimmy and Ken will discuss the Israeli Prime Minister meeting with the Russian President Putin, as they talked about the situation in Syria; Syria vows to recapture the Golan Heights, by any and all means possible; the United States warns Turkey; and Turkish President Erdogan is fighting for his political life.
