Topic: How can churches make millions of dollars from local, state, and federal governments by being contractors for social services? Topic: What % of money that Catholic charities brings in each year comes from governments and how many billions are we talking about? Topic: We take your calls.

Col Bob Maginnis, who works at the Pentagon in Washington, is a Broadcast Partner of Jimmy DeYoung and looks at geo-political events around the world that seemingly are setting the stage for Bible Prophecy to be fulfilled. On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy and Bob will discuss a number of issues that give you insight into the events which are a part of the end time scenario found in the Bible; a focus on the Trump-Kim Summit; remembering the past experiences that the US had with NKorea; how this recent summit might help us see the prospects for the future relations between the US and NKorea; and the role that Russia and China might play in that future.



When we pray for something, we hope for a quick response from God. But God has His own timeline which is not always in sync with ours. How do we handle prayers that are time-critical for us, when God’s answers seem to never come?

Steve McConkey is the president of 4 Winds Christian Athletics, a sports ministry that takes a stand for Christian athletes and encourages athletes to defend Christianity.

Steve began by noting how there's no testosterone test for numerous women's athletic events. In the case of the Olympics, he indicated that there's been victory in the last few months because the Olympic committee took up the recommendation to lower the testosterone levels which will make it harder for transgenders to compete. Unfortunately in events at the high school level or even in the Boston Marathon, an athlete can just declare that they're a woman or man and compete with no testing parameters whatsoever.

Jim then mentioned the Connecticut State Open Track and Field Championships. 2 individuals had a great day but they both identified as transgender. They are biologically male but competed as females.

While human rights activists praise this advance in so-called LGBTQ rights, parents of high school students are beginning to stand up against this. The concern is over the rights of biological girls that are defeated in such circumstances. They've trained year after year only to be beaten by a biological male who wishes to identify as a female. Not only are records shattered, but these girls can have their college scholarship dreams shattered, once again, simply because a biological male decides he wants to declare himself a female.

​What about professional sports? This year we're seeing the largest number of Major League Baseball teams that are promoting homosexuality at LGBT pride nights.
Pride flags can be unfurled and homosexuals can also be seen kissing via stadium 'kiss cams'.

The New York City Pride Parade takes place this weekend. For the first time 'Outsports' is reporting that the NFL and Major League Baseball will be participating.

Also, this Thursday (June 21st) the Minnesota Vikings will become the first NFL team to host a summit on LGBTQ inclusion. It will include panels featuring gay, lesbian and transgender athletes and coaches
Steve comments on this and much more along with taking questions and comments from Crosstalk listeners.


Man Up Time: Fathers' Leadership Desperately Needed. Topics discussed include: Celebration of Fathers’ Day. In what areas of life and relationships are fathers most needed today? Is there anything wrong with children being kept in “detention centers” when they get separated from their parents at the border?



The Islamic Misconception of Isaiah Part 1

Ken Timmerman is a Broadcast Partner with Jimmy DeYoung on PTIB. On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy will receive a report on geo-political events happening around the world. Ken's report will include the Trump-Kim Summit; Trump's Middle East Agenda; Turkish President Erdogan is in a fight for his political life; and the Iranian people using social media to defy the radical political  leaders of Iran, and to actually praise the Jewish State of Israel.

When we pray, there’s a bigger purpose at work than we realize. For us, getting the answer is all-consuming. For God, developing our character is the real objective. In this message we learn that God is at work, even when our prayers seem to bounce off the ceiling.

Dr. David Stevens is the chief executive officer of the Christian Medical and Dental Association, the nation's largest faith-based organization of healthcare professionals. Dr. Stevens has also served as a missionary doctor in Kenya for some 10 years. He's also conducted numerous seminars on such issues as stem cell research, human cloning, genetics, faith and health, physician-assisted suicide, abortion and other topics.

On January 1st, California opened the door for the recreational use of marijuana. Newsweek has reported that at least 12 states are poised to consider the legalization of marijuana.

Dr. Stevens believes that part of the reason this is happening is because of big money. George Soros has poured 100 million dollars into the Drug Policy Alliance. That's a group that's pushing legalization across the nation. Also, in Colorado, they have 28 full-time lobbyists at the state legislature, more than on any issue.

Marijuana back in the 60's had about 1% THC content. Today, the average across the U.S. is 12%. If you go to Colorado, it's about 30%. THC is a reference to the active substance in marijuana: Tetrohydrocannabinol. That's what gives the 'high', the hallucinations, the feeling of ease, the loss of contact with time and other bodily effects.

Other effects to note include breathing problems, it increases the heart rate, gives an increased risk of heart attack, it's very bad for pregnant women, if used in high amounts it can actually be the cause, rather than the cure, for intense nausea and vomiting, it makes schizophrenia worse, causes lower satisfaction with life, relationship problems, less academic and career success, and the list goes on.

THC doesn't give any medicinal effects. That comes from cannabinol. Cannabinol doesn't give a 'high' but does have some effect on glaucoma, nausea and other things. So the mantra being promoted is that if we just legalize it, that will cut down on the use of it.

Dr. Stevens explained that an independent group estimated that out of 13-1/2 million pounds of marijuana produced in California, 80% of it was illegally shipped out of state, and of the remaining 20%, only 5% went into medicinal marijuana.

So why are numerous states looking to jump aboard the marijuana bandwagon? Again, it all goes back to money. Marijuana is getting taxed. It had been estimated that by this year, marijuana would be a 3.5 billion dollar business in California and a 5 billion dollar business by next year, with the state making a billion dollars in taxes.

So it's not the legalization of marijuana that's really the issue, it's the commercialization. Under commercialization you need to get more current users and you want them to become ever more frequent users. Obtaining that goal requires more marketing which is just what you'll see in Colorado as marijuana is promoted in TV, print, etc. This is resulting in huge profits for the state and those involved in it. Just to prove the point, Dr. Stevens noted that in one minority area of Denver, there's 1 marijuana shop for every 47 people.

Dr. Stevens has no problem with medical marijuana as long as it's handled like medicine. He gave the example of morphine which is an effective drug for pain relief. Morphine comes from heroin which in turn, comes from poppy plants. We don't allow people to grow poppy plants in their backyard and manufacture their own heroin, but that's what we're doing with marijuana. There's no manufacturer, there's no FDA approval, no standard chemical composition for potency and quality, no standard dosage, no safe delivery system, and no knowledge of interaction with other drugs you may be taking. Instead, in California, the legal system is basically saying that if you need marijuana for medicinal use, you can grow six plants in your backyard as long as people can't see them. Then you can consume that marijuana in whatever dosage you want.

There's much more to learn on this subject and Jim helps bring it to you in this very informative Crosstalk interview.

Guest: Dr. Andy Woods. Topic: Ask Dr. Woods. Questions. 1. Have we all been lied to by NASA science into thinking that the earth goes around the sun? Joshua 10:12-14 says the sun stood still. And all scripture is God inspired and God cannot lie. So, if God says the earth stood still then it’s the earth. But HE said the sun stood still and so it must be the sun. So my question is who’s right: man who has been trying to disprove that there is God or is the Bible and God’s word right? Does the sun go around the earth today? 2. I was listening to the program and a man asked why it says that a name would be blotted out of the book of life. I had heard preachers say there was the book of life and the lamb’s book of life but I have never found in the Bible where it talks about both being separate. I came to the conclusion there is one book of life because in Psalm 139:16 it says “and in thy book all my members were written” and I took that to mean that upon conception all life is written in the book of life and that salvation determines whether or not a name is blotted out. Could you help me with this? 3. Mark 16:15 speaking of the Great Commission says, “And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” What does He mean by "creature"? Should I preach to my dog? 4. Concerning the witch of Endor story (1 Sam. 28), my question is, was that really Samuel who came up? Some denominations claim that it was a demon posing as Samuel that Saul saw, however, the Bible is clear that it was Samuel that Saul was talking to, otherwise wouldn't the Bible say, "it was a demon, but Saul thought it was Samuel"? 5. In Revelation 7:8, it talks about 12,000 from each tribe of Israel, but one of the tribes is the tribe of Joseph. How can there be 12,000 from the tribe of Joseph if there is no tribe of Joseph? Where will those people come from? 6. You have talked a lot on your show about Salvific issues and non-salvific issues, as well as essential and non-essential issues.  How do you know which one is which? Who decides what is an essential or a non-essential issue? 7. My church is having a vote to allow women to serve as Elders. Below are their justifications. 8 A. We believe that women as elders is a non-essential issue. B. The Bible does not speak clearly about how a local church should be governed. C. What happened or was preached on in the early church was descriptive but not prescriptive for all churches for all time. D.There are two types of texts in the Bible: Ideal texts and culturally-bound texts. E. Godly women using their leadership gifts have had a huge impact on our church. F. We feel that our current practice makes no sense to the secular culture we are trying to reach. My question(s): Are any of these reasons persuasive and should I think about finding a new church?

On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has his weekly conversation with Dave James on an issue that the Church needs a Biblical understanding of for a Christians daily walk. Dave and Jimmy will discuss the report that many are saying that we are now in a "Post-Biblical era in Christianity"; why the Church, especially the young people in the Church, are not accepting the Bible as the final authority; and why this is the time we need to double-down on our study of the Word of God, especially the Prophetic passages in the Bible so that we can live how the Lord wants us to in the end of times.

It's relativism versus reality and as always, reality is winning.  In this week's abbreviated boralogue, John looks at the failure of relativistic laws to hold up in the face of real life, using Seattle's decision to repeal a head tax they had just enacted a month prior after several businesses suggested that perhaps they may skip town and take their money with them.

Policies that go against the beliefs of people, though wildly unpopular, are being enacted in Canada.  Natasha Fernandes (, Board Member for Canadian Physicians for Life describes how doctors in Ontario will have to refer patients to abortion or euthanasia services, even if it violates the doctor's beliefs.

Does the populist victory in recent Italian elections indicate the formation of cracks in the globalist economy?  Dave McAlvany (, host of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary discusses the state of the EU financial markets, the future of the global economy, and the raising of interest rates in the United States.

John and Producer Steve look at President Trump and his plans in the Middle East and his relationship with both Benjamin Netanyahu and Justin Trudeau.  We finish the show with financial analyst and AI blogger Cris Sheridan ( who gives an update on the progress of artificial intelligence, including the ability to perfectly mimic someone's voice to say whatever you want them to say.


John’s quote of the week:    

"People with constantly changing, oftentimes self-contradicting morals, are trying to dictate to people by law, with firm constant morals, that they shouldn't have firm morals when their relative morals go against them."

It happens again and again. A child is at death’s door, and even after urgent prayer, the child dies anyway. Where was God? When prayer is not answered as we’d like, many simply stop praying. What is God doing?

Jim presented the history of how this special day became a national holiday, why fathers are such a critical component of the family unit, some wisdom regarding fatherhood from the late Adrian Rogers, General Douglas MacArthur, Charles Spurgeon and more. After that he opened the phone lines to let Crosstalk listeners pay special tribute and honor toward their fathers. Many heartfelt testimonies and sentiments were expressed and you'll be blessed by all when you review this special Crosstalk broadcast.

This week we are talking about the road to Venezuela in the US.  This is being orchestrated at the highest levels of the government via globalists who are in control of America's politicians and intelligence agencies.  Like Germany under Hitler, Russia under Stalin and Venezuela under Murado, our intelligence agencies are being used against the American people in order to identify and freeze the foe and then destroy them through propaganda, lies and legal ​convictions.  Today we will walk through the time line and the players who have been instrumental in defining and executing the Russian Spy-gate Operation.  Do not be deceived this is a full scale Counterintelligence Operation designed to malign, undermine and destroy President Donald Trump by the left and the globalists.  Join us as we discuss the facts of this operations.


Topic: What is the worldview of the new president of the largest protestant denomination/association in America? J.D. Greear was just elected the president of the Southern Baptist Convention. Would you be shocked that his admitted mentor is neo-Calvinist and neo-Marxist Tim Keller? Topic: What it means to be “woke.” Topic: We take your calls

George Orwell famously wrote that, “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”

Orwell is viewed by many as a prophet of a rising tyranny that is inevitable among a free people who refuse to remain vigilant in the protection of it.

Censorship is one of several powerful weapons in the modern political state’s arsenal. The organized crime syndicate commonly known as the United States Federal Government, aided and abetted by media behemoths, has moved American citizens perilously close to the future Orwell envisioned.

Just how bad is it you ask? It is worse than most Americans think. Stay tuned for my conversation with my friend Jon Robberson next in this episode of SER.

Jon Robberson is the Producer of The Hagmann Report and is the co-host along with Joe Hagmann of The Hagmann Daily Report.

The article Jon wrote – Tech Tyrants Collude With Homeland Security “Media Influencers” Are the Target.
