Ephesus had silversmiths who sold shrines of the goddess Artemis. When Paul came with the Gospel, their business was affected, and soon Paul found himself in a riot. The Gospel is controversial, impacting even culture and trade, and things can quickly get violent.

Barbara Loe Fisher is president of the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), a non-profit charity she co-founded with parents of DPT vaccine injured children in 1982. For over 35 years, she has led a national, grassroots movement and public information campaign to institute vaccine safety reforms and informed consent protections in the public health system. She has researched, analyzed and publicly articulated the major issues involving the science, policy, law, ethics and politics of vaccination to become one of the world’s leading non-medical, consumer advocacy experts on the subject. She’s co-author of ‘DPT: A Shot in the Dark’ and author of ‘The Consumer’s Guide to Childhood Vaccines’, ‘Vaccines, Autism & Chronic Inflammation: The New Epidemic’, and ‘Reforming Vaccine Policy & Law: A Guide.’

Barbara began by giving listeners an overview of a public hearing with the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. It dealt with confronting the measles outbreak in the U.S and featured only two witnesses, both of which were high ranking public health officials.

What was most distressing to Barbara was that there were what she considered to be false statements that were communicated under oath. The statements were an attempt to try and convince lawmakers that MMR vaccines doesn’t cause encephalitis while also suggesting that these vaccines don’t carry serious risk or that if they do, such risks are rare.

Barbara noted that the parents who were in attendance gasped because they couldn’t believe what they were hearing.

She said that the same thing happened on March 5th in the Senate. All witnesses called said the same thing, that vaccines are nearly risk free, everyone should be vaccinated and there shouldn’t be any exemptions. In addition, it was communicated that there should be censorship on social media about vaccine conversations that don’t conform with the policies of the CDC and World Health Organization.

Under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury act of 1986, the NVIC was responsible for securing the vaccine informing, reporting, recording and research provisions in that law. Regarding the informing safety provision, the federal government (CDC) was supposed to publish information about risks, signs and symptoms of vaccine reactions. On the vaccine information statement published by the CDC is the admission that mentions various adverse events. Then on the MMRV vaccine it states that one of the moderate adverse events that can occur is infection of the lungs or the brain and spinal cord coverings (encephalitis or meningitis).

So for a high ranking federal official to make a statement saying that the vaccine doesn’t cause encephalitis, when these factors are listed in information statements, is it any wonder the parents at the hearing gasped? As Barbara noted, their reaction basically ‘called him out.’

Barbara also monitors vaccination activity in the states, with this broadcast giving brief mention to legislation activity in Florida and Iowa. Following this, Barbara explains why she supports both those who choose to accept or not accept vaccines, there’s discussion about a six-in-one combo vaccine for babies, and Crosstalk listeners provide questions as well.

Tamara's guest include Alice Linahan and Amy Hedtke and Lynne Taylor as tehy discuss legislation sweeping serval states merging mental health, medication and education. 

Dr. John Whitcomb concludes his series on “God’s Truth Circles” this week on “Encounter God’s Truth.” This final message is called “Examples to Follow in Truth.” Our teacher finishes on a high note by surveying the Old Testament—stopping at Ezra and Nehemiah to consider the wonderful examples of faithfulness offered by these post-exilic leaders. He also comments on some relevant verses in the gospels. God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end, making it possible for the student of Scripture to find rich truths—even in passages we might be tempted to neglect. Dr. Whitcomb ends this series with help from Wayne Shepherd, who asks him a question about cooperating in ministry, whenever possible, without compromising the message. We trust the practical answer you receive will prove beneficial.

With crazy stories inundating us every day, how did we get to this point?  In this week's boralogue, John looks at history from the protests of the 1960s through the blossoming of the internet age to where we are now with late-term abortion laws and media people not living up to journalistic standards. There are those who are tired of being choked by political correctness and they are fighting back.


If we're not careful, the socialistic healthcare system in Canada could make its way south.  Author and retired businessman William Gairdner ( joins us from the Great White North to discuss the costs and rules of free healthcare for all and how some, usually the well-connected, get around those rules.


The Pope just signed an agreement with Sheik Ahmad el-Tayeb, the grand imam of al-Azhar.  Author and Middle East expert Raymond Ibrahim ( contrasts the watered-down language of the agreement with the Sheik's speeches about it in Arabic.  He also dissects the media and liberal adoration of Islam and the Pope.


Is the national emergency declaration on the border wall a good idea? It depends on who you ask.  Dr. Merrill Matthews (, Resident Scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, examines partisan hypocrisy over the execution of emergency declarations and what that may mean for the future.


John’s quote of the week:    

"The education system is broken; it's being run by the people who broke it.  But they actively, aggressively oppose any kind of reform which would fix it.  Yet these same politicians send their kids to private schools.  They don't want to put themselves in the very system they're smashing down on everyone else."

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung and Dave James have their weekly conversation on an issue that must be understood from a Biblical prospective. This time Jimmy and Dave will discuss the use of a political strategy being used in the Trump Administration that incorporates another issue in the political arena that must be understood from a Biblical prospective; the other issue is the homosexual issue and the plan by the President to introduce the "decriminalization of homosexuality"; and how a true Christian can not compromise, on a Biblical issue, even in the political arena.


While living in Corinth, Paul worked as a tentmaker and taught in the local synagogue. Through his efforts, a church was born—a church that later received the two letters we find in the New Testament. In this message we witness the Gospel’s power in ancient Greece.
