Situation Room

Worldview Weekend

The World's Premier Biblical Worldview, Web-Based, Radio, and Television Network.

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.”

Ask Dr. John with Dr. John Whitcomb. Topic: At the start of the program Brannon addresses the need to not be a contentious contender as so many on social media seem to be today; including so called discernment bloggers, authors, and ministry leaders. Brannon explains how a cranky contender is a woeful witness and what should drive us to discernment is the love of truth and not the love of the debate. Now we go to Dr. John. Question: What are the best evidences of young-earth creationism? Question: Does a believer who dies receive a mansion immediately or only later—following the rapture (cf. John 14:1-6)? Question: What does it mean to be “delivered unto Satan” (1 Tim. 1:20)? Question: How will there continue to be “nations” in eternity future (cf. Rev. 21:24; 21:26; 22:2)? Question: Is there a difference between the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the filling of the Holy Spirit? Question: My husband and I attend a Bible study in addition to our church. A new couple in our group attends a church with a woman pastor. If we do not confront this situation are we endorsing it with our silence? Question:Today, I engaged in a conversation with a very troubled young man I have known since his childhood. He is so angry and challenging and trying to shock me with his claims of magical powers, spiritual practice and bad language. I kept calmly telling him that Jesus is God, that I believe in Jesus as my Lord, that Jesus is the only One who can help us, etc. Should a Christian just go ahead and say, “The Lord rebuke you, Satan,” when we suspect someone needs that? I do believe this man could be possessed. Question: What will happen to Israel in the current crisis with Iran? Question: Can Jews be saved without believing in Jesus? Question: I just heard Dr. Whitcomb give Scripture to say we were the only beings in the universe. There are many television programs about spaceships, aliens, mysteries of the pyramids, Stonehenge and drawings by the Egyptians and other cultures depicting beings coming from the heavens.   Where did these come from and why are they here?  Could these people have seen the angels of Gen. 6:1-4? Topic: We take your calls. 

Chris discusses the popular film "300" about the ancient Spartans who defended their homeland against the Persian invasion, and died in the midst of battle. Yet the Bible tells us about another company of 300 who went out against a far greater company -- those who were led by Gideon, one of the judges of ancient Israel. What are the differences between them, and how can we learn from them today?

Jihad and Terrorism (Part Eight)

Thankfulness or Jesus–Part 1 Ten lepers get healed. Once comes back to say, “thanks.” What is Luke 17 about? If you said, “thankfulness,” you would be wrong. Tune in to find out the real answer.

On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has two of his Broadcast Partners who will join him with conversations about Europe and the scientific world. Dr Rob Congdon will have a European Union up-date. Dr Don DeYoung will talk with Jimmy about "black holes" and the report that Russia is looking into another attempt at traveling to the Moon. These will be two very interesting and informative conversations. Please stay tuned.

When Jesus fed the 5,000, He referred to Himself as the Bread of Life. In this message, we’ll learn why we need eternal bread, not just physical bread, and where we can find it.

Mat began by commenting on the recent speech by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before a joint session of Congress. He described the dire situation in which Israel finds itself regarding Iran's nuclear aspirations. In other words, this speech was not about his election and Mat believes Netanyahu would have come here with or without the election. He was cut out of deals, cut out of negotiations, he had top Israeli intelligence information leaked by our administration and he found out that President Obama was involved in secret negotiations with the Iranian regime.

Drugs and Christian Counseling Is the mind different than the brain? Does medicine solve the emotional problems or just mask them? Is it ever right to take mind altering drugs? Pastor Mike takes a look at The Christian Counselor’s Medical Desk Reference on today’s show.

Jihad and Terrorism (Part Seven)

On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung will speak with Ken Timmerman in Washington who will help us understand the details behind the geo-political headlines in our world today. Jimmy and Ken will discuss the Iranian military threat to "wipe Tel Aviv off the map"; the fears that are growing for the Syrian Christians kidnapped by IS and how the Iranian military chief is operating in Iraq.

This morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel addressed a joint session of Congress. President Obama was very much opposed to this event and certain Democratic legislators boycotted the session. Even Secretary of State John Kerry warned how this might subvert negotiations taking place between the U.S. and Iran. Joining Jim from Serbia to discuss this was Dr. Jimmy DeYoung. Dr. DeYoung is a student of Bible prophecy, conference speaker and an expert on the Middle East. He leads a ministry called Prophecy Today and has spent many years living in Israel as well as having led many trips there. He constantly monitors news regarding Israel and the Middle East and provides a unique blend of political, biblical and prophetic insight that is absent from the media today.

Generally in life, there are no free lunches. But one day, 5,000 men (plus women and children) were fed from a boy’s lunch. Come with us to the Sea of Galilee for a miracle of bread and fish.

Topic: Self-described Christians will persecute real Christians and think they are serving God. Today Brannon looks at several passages of Scripture and discusses how a false church will persecute true Christians. Are well known evangelicals giving credibility to this false church and will that cause many to not speak up when this false church persecutes Christians? Will the persecution be justified under the false claim that real Christians are haters, intolerant, and divisive? Topic: The wife of a Baptist pastor in Alabama works at an abortion clinic, and an abortion doctor in Mississippi calls himself a Christian in a national interview. Topic: Hear the audio of David Jeremiah praising and promoting the upcoming television broadcast of Mark Burnett and Roma Downey and his participation with them. Why would David Jeremiah work with them when their productions do not represent the Jesus of the Bible or the Biblical gospel? Roma is an admitted New Age Catholic. Topic: We take your calls.

Topic: Ex Jesuit tells national news outlet that that Jesuits are most gay friendly order with political and social connections that rivaled the Beltway. Topic: Is the Church of Rome laying the foundation to openly support same-sex marriage and eventually hate crimes and thus the laws will be used to persecute Christians as the Church of Rome has done for hundreds of years? Topic: Vatican gives homosexuals first ever VIP seating at Papal speech in February of 2015. Topic: Vatican owns building that houses cardinals and Europe’s biggest gay bathhouse. Topic: PBS Frontline piece on homosexual culture inside Church of Rome. Topic: Mormon Church vows to fight for LGBT. Topic: Southern Baptist leader says Alabama Judges must uphold gay marriage. Topic: New York Times documents the Catholic Roots of Obama. Topic: Obama admits former Jesuit helped him get elected. Topic: First ever Jesuit Chaplin in the House of Representatives. Topic: Is the Catholic Church working with Obama to legalize voting immigrants and put Church of Rome politicians in power to control America’s future? Hear what was printed in National Review in 2014. Topic: Will Catholic Jeb Bush and his Mexican born wife win the White House? If so what does this mean for the Church of Rome? Topic: CSmonitor on how Jeb Bush is evolving on same-sex marriage. Topic: How have the neo-evangelicals, neo-Calvinists, and Religious Right laid the foundation for many evangelicals to accept and respect the Church of Rome and thus agree with the Church of Rome on same-sex issues should the Church of Rome openly embrace this practice? How has the theological compromise of evangelicals laid a dangerous trap for America? Topic: We take your calls.

There are points in our lives when we may face what appears to be an impossible situation. But the Bible teaches that all things are possible with God. At the pool of Bethesda, Jesus performed the impossible.
