Dr. Erwin Lutzer: January 22, 2013

Now Available in the Situation Room

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

The culture in the United States is one where the occult isn’t taken seriously. It’s glamorized in best-selling books, makes big money at the box office, and garners high ratings on television. But demonic influence is very real. In this message, Pastor Lutzer helps us see the dark side of “fantasy.”

Evangelical Fads–Part 1 Pastor Mike and Pastor Steve look at various evangelical fads that have come and gone over the years on today’s show. Whatever happened to…?

On today's program, JD discusses recent criticism by Apologia Radio concerning his take on theonomy and spends the whole program explaining why theonomy and Christian Reconstructionism are unbiblical understandings of the proper use of God's law.

Islamic Misconceptions in the Book of Deuteronomy (program #13)

THE VIRTUOUS WARRIOR Chris discusses the concept of "virtue" as it pertains to a solder or warrior for God. This was of particular importance to our forefathers who went to battle for the cause of true liberty. But how does this compare with the kinds of atrocities we are witnessing from Muslims who claim to be fighting for Allah? In the Bible, God often commands His people to fight their enemies -- but is all fair in matters of war? Or does the Lord hold men accountable for acceptable boundaries?

Colin Gunn is an award winning writer, director, and film producer. Many have been impacted by his documentary, "Indoctrination" which investigates public schools and the decline of Christianity. Colin has now produced a new documentary on health care entitled, "Wait Till It’s Free", that takes a hard look at how we do health care in America. He proposes to let Capitalism and the Free Market System work and keep health care affordable, not political programs like Obamacare. Colin says that if you follow the money, you will discover why health care is so expensive, and who is making the money in today's flawed system. Hospitals are the biggest culprit:

Believers get their strength from God through His abundant grace—God’s unmerited favor towards His children through Christ. That grace, which none of us deserves, is the focus of this message.

Islamic Misconceptions in the Book of Deuteronomy (program #12)

Is Bonnke Biblical? Tuesday Guy continues to hold down the fort on today’s show. Pastor Steve looks at a recent article from Christianity Today about Reinhard Bonnke. How do Bonnke’s view compare to what is taught in the Bible? Listen in to find out!

Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung will get a Middle East News Up-date from Dave Dolan. These two journalist will discuss several issues, Dave's look back over the last Jewish year, and a look ahead at the new Jewish year, 5775. They will also discuss the statement by the Muslim states that the Israeli's have no right to defend themselves; Israel could do a pre-emptive strike on Iran's development of a nuclear WMD at any moment and by 2030 Jerusalem could have an Arab majority.

At times we are confronted with questions that challenge our faith. Sometimes they are honest questions from seekers while at other times such questions are from skeptics who have no interest in the things of God and are merely trying to confound us. Is there evidence that provides adequate answers and how should we deliver such answers? To address this issue, Jim spoke with Bodie Hodge, a writer and researcher at Answers in Genesis who is also a member of the editorial review board. He has been involved with many books and DVD's and is a regular speaker in the Creation Museum Speaker Series. This Crosstalk discussed his latest book--Confound the Critics: Answers for Attacks on Biblical Truths.

Once people understand what the Bible teaches about salvation, they know that grace is unmerited favor, and they thank God every day for the grace that made it possible for them to become citizens of heaven.

Ask Dr. John with theologian Dr. John Whitcomb. Question: Can you explain the Holy Trinity to me? Who do I address when I pray – the Father, Jesus or the Holy Spirit, or do I just say God? Question: In Ex. 4:11, 12 the LORD rebukes Moses by saying, “Who has made man’s mouth? Or who makes the mute, the deaf, the seeing, or the blind? Have not I, the Lord?” (NKJV). Why does the LORD take credit for making people with disabilities when this is man's fault? Question: What does Matthew 17:10-13 mean? Was John the Baptist just Elijah in a new body? Was it the same Elijah who appeared on the Mount of Transfiguration? Question: Can you explain more about the Apostle Paul’s work of tent making? Is this the way that ministers should work today? Question: Will there be sin during the Millennium? I know Satan will be bound and Jesus will rule, but will those who live on into the Millennium in their natural bodies still have the sin nature, as well their offspring? Question: Will believers be filled with the Spirit in heaven? Question: My girlfriend invited me to her church and afterward asked me what I thought. I said that the female pastor teaching the congregation troubled me. When she asked me why I told her the Bible states that women should not be in a leadership role in the church. But when I went to look it up I only found one passage – 1 Tim. 2:12. Are there other verses on this? Was this just for the church of Ephesus or is this for everyone and for today? Question: My pastor says that God's Word is alive. If you read a passage one day and get no meaning out of it and then later read that same passage and it speaks to your circumstances, is this Biblical? It seems to me like this is a way of twisting Scripture to get it to say what you want. Question: Can demons possess people today? Is it common or rare? Topic: We take your calls.

Guest: Pastor Michael John Beasley and Usama Dakdok. Topic: Pastor Beasley has written an open letter to Kirk Cameron, Glenn Beck, and Catholic Priest David Dwyer. Michael explains why he wrote it, what he wrote and what he prays Kirk will do in response. Topic: Usama joins us to talk about the reported Islamic beheading in Oklahoma this past week. Usama predicted on WVW-TV nine days before the tragic murder that such beheadings and acts of Jihad were going to increase in America. Usama also talks about what he believes is a coming civil war in America as Muslims declare open Jihad. Topic: We take lots of your calls with both of these guests.

Aliens UFOs and the Bible Is there really intelligent life elsewhere in the universe? What about all the claimed UFO sightings? Has NASA made contact with alien life? In this session Mike examines these questions and more. Based on the laws of science and logic, is it possible for alien life to travel vast distances across the universe? Mike also addresses the question, “Did God create life elsewhere in the universe?”

Righteousness And Wrath Revealed–Part 2 Pastor Mike continues a new sermon series today on the book of Romans. The theme of the book is introduced in this overview. What should our response be when we see Creation? What does Romans say about Judgment? Get a sneak peak of what is to come in future weeks!
