Brannon Howse: Aired December 19, 2012

Now Available in the Situation Room

We're sorry this broadcast is now available to Situation Room Members Only.

Brannon’s guest is Pastor Parker Reardon who pastors Newtown Bible Church just three minutes from the Sandy Hook School in Connecticut where 6 adults and 20 children were murdered last week. Pastor Reardon reports that he was interviewed live by CNBC and stated that President Obama’s focus on gun control was the wrong focus and it should be the depraved heart of man. Pastor Reardon reports that his interview was scrubbed. Reardon’s associate pastor Joey was in the firehouse when the parents were officially told their children had perished. How did most of the local clergy respond? Pastor Reardon also talks about how he and his church are passing out tracks as well as copies of the book by John MacArthur, “Save in the Arms of God.” Reardon talks about the difficulty in pastoring in this part of the country and challenges our radio audience to use all occasion to proclaim the gospel. We take your calls and our phone lines light up.

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung talks with two of his Broadcast Partners, both with very interesting and up-to-date information. Jimmy will talk with Usama Dakdok, and Egyptian-born expert on the Islamic faith. Jimmy and Usama will discuss how the Quran calls for Muslims to commit terrorism. But first Jimmy will have a conversation with Dr Rob Congdon, who has a European Union Up-date for us today.

As Vic mentions early on, music can motivate, it can be a blessing, but it can be abrasive as well as a curse. It’s this very challenging topic of music and worship in the church that was covered on this edition of Crosstalk. Vic’s guest was Dr. Don Kurtz. Dr. Kurtz has bachelor degrees in both Music Education & Bible, a Masters in Sacred Music, and a Doctor of Ministry. He is an adjunct professor at Maranatha Baptist Bible College and is on the Pastoral Staff at Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, WI. He has been communicating what the Word of God says about music and worship for close to 30 years. He is author of the book, Worship and Music in the Word: A Genesis to Revelation Study.

Americans are adrift in a sea of moral relativism. We need a moral compass. The cross of Christ is that compass, and the church must live by the cross if our culture is to survive.

The Straightway Vs. CAIR (program #19)

Be The Message What does it mean to “Be The Message”? What does it mean to “live the Gospel”? Why do people not want to hear Biblical sermons today? Listen in to find out.

THE POPE SAYS EVOLUTION IS TRUE Chris discusses a new story about Pope Francis who has now told the world that the big bang theory and Darwin's theory of evolution are true. The Pope maintains that, apparently, God used evolution to accomplish the creation. But is this possible in light of Scripture? Could Adam and Eve have evolved from apes? The truth is that evolution has a long history with the Jesuit Order, in particular, Teilhard de Chardin, the man known as the "father of the new age" and perhaps the greatest single influence behind the modern day ecumenical movement.

Ken Ham is president, CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis and the highly acclaimed Creation Museum. Ken is a biblical apologist who gives presentations all over the world on the reliability of the Bible and how compromise over biblical authority has undermined society and even the church. Ken is the author of numerous books including, “The Lie: Evolution,” “Already Gone,” “Already Compromised,” “Six Days: The Age of the Earth and the Decline of the Church” and is general editor of the New Answers Series Volumes I-IV. This Crosstalk takes a look at the books that make up the New Answers Series Volumes I-IV. The story behind these books goes back to the 1980's when Ken would go on tour to the U.S. to speak on creation. He found that no matter where he traveled, people asked basically the same questions. In other words these books (that are the four largest selling creation apologetics books in the world) provide answers to the top 130 questions Answers in Genesis is continually asked.

A culture that rejects Christ is a culture that makes its own standard for moral choices. This moral standard influences our votes which determine our nation’s destiny. So where does true morality come from?

Who is best credited with starting the following in evangelicalism: the church growth movement, Altar calls, emotional story telling in sermons, emotional and psychological manipulation in services, long drawn out services and long drawn out altar calls, the church as a political moralizing social movement and odd public manifestations in services? All of this can be largely blamed on a false teacher by the name of Charles Finney. Dr. Tommy Ice joins Brannon to discuss the worldview of Finney. Did you know that Finny rejected the doctrine of original sin, doctrine of justification by faith, doctrine of imputed righteousness, and believed in a works salvation? If you want to understand in part the current state of evangelicalism then you need to understand how it got where it is today and how Charles Finney helped to bring it to this point. Topic: We take your calls.

Topic: You have to hear it to believe it! Kirk Cameron speaks at Liberty University and tells the students that “Uncle Kirk” is going to save Christmas with his upcoming movie. Kirk makes what some believe was a painfully embarrassing attempt at humor while apparently mocking and ridiculing what he called religious nitpickers. Hear Kirk do an embarrassing skit, with a British accent. His skit was on how Chinese food is pagan in what appears to be an attempt to say that those that talk about the pagan ideas behind some of the trappings of Christmas should avoid pagan Chinese food as well. Some callers to our program felt Kirk’s skit was close to being, if not outright, sacrilegious as he jokes about the Trinity and Chinese food. Topic: Remember Kirk is the guy that was on ABC News Nightline a few years ago debating atheists on the topic of evolution and his appearance caused many of us to cringe as he held up pictures of a bull-frog, (frog with horns), and a sheep dog, (a sheep with a dog face) to prove the fallacy of macroevolution. Hear the audio. Topic: Brannon wants his radio audience to tell him if they think Kirk has become an embarrassment to evangelicalism. Our phones light up. Hear their thoughts from across the country. Topic: With all the serious issues facing evangelicalism and with the numerous Biblically solid speakers they could put in front of these 10,000 young people, why is Liberty U. sinking to the antics of a former child star hocking his silly and theologically troubled movie? Topic: Hear two secular TV talk show hosts report on their shock that Kirk Cameron wants to put Jesus into Halloween. Then hear one of the secular TV hosts explain that despite what Kirk Cameron thinks Halloween has no Christian bases. The secular host actually gives an accurate report on the history of Halloween. Topic: What must the persecuted Church in China and around the world think of the state of evangelicalism in America with the antics of Cameron and others that seem so obsessed with moralizing and Christianizing the culture at what appears to be at the expense of Biblically contending for the faith?
