Topic: The proven steps to brainwashing of Americans (Part 3 of 3). Brannon layout the very specific steps that have been used by the communists to brainwash American prisoners of war during the Korean War. You will hear numerous audio clips from William E. Mayer who conducted a detailed study of 1,000 Korean War Veterans. The study by Major William E. Mayer was released in October of 1956 and revealed how these P.O.W. turned to defending and promoting communism without be persuaded by torture or drugs. So just how were these men in the 1950s convinced to embrace and promote communism and how are these same brainwashing techniques being used today in America to accomplish the same goals? Then Jimmy DeYoung joins us to discuss these topics: Murder of journalist in Saudi Consulate in Turkey is a precursor to Iranian Eschatology. Topic: Palestinian Authority Abbas's advisor says Islamic religious war to destroy Israel - Ezekiel 38 - has started. Topic: Moscow rejects Israeli sovereignty over Golan Heights which is key to Israeli security.

A Conversation with Bill Devlin. Are American’s getting tired of the bully tactics and uncivility from the left concerning those on the right? American Pastors Network Call to Prayer for the Nov. 6 Mid-Term Election.

There are still many unanswered questions surrounding the murder of a journalist, in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. The world needs to know what really happened in that  Consulate on October 2. Today on PTIB Jimmy DeYoung brings to his Broadcast Table Col Bob Magginis, from the Pentagon, to discuss this issue and others. In Bob's new book, Alliance of Evil, he wrote about two Nations, Russia and China, that the United States is in a "cold war" with today; he brings to the table some things we need to consider as we look for the proper punishment for this horrific act in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey; and the ramifications, politically and prophetically, of this matter in the Middle East, and the entire world.

We don’t always know why, but God chooses to give some of His children more than others—more abilities, more money, and better health. When we realize that the Giver is the one who distributes the gifts, and not the receiver, we’ve come a long way in understanding how God rewards his people.

Dr. David Stevens is the Chief Executive Officer of the Christian Medical & 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 also has conducted numerous seminars on such issues as stem cell research, human cloning, genetics, faith and health, physician-assisted suicide, abortion and other topics.

​Dr. Stevens is not surprised by the number of states that have marijuana related issues on their ballots. The reason he carries this opinion is because he doesn't believe that legalization is the issue. Instead, he believes it's about the commercialization of marijuana. You can go to the stock exchanges and invest in marijuana stock, therefore he feels it's money that's driving this.

Regarding the various names used in marijuana discussions, Dr. Stevens began with hemp. Hemp is a form of the cannabis plant that has no psychoactive substance in it. Rope used to be made from this plant and in some areas there are efforts being made to allow its use as a cash crop and he has no problems with that.

There are two substances most talked about with regard to marijuana. One is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and this is the psychoactive ingredient that gives the 'high' and mellowness that follows consumption.

Next is the cannabinols (CBD). These are what provide the few medicinal effects that we know exist and counteract to some extent the psychoactive effects of the THC.

Sometimes you'll hear about CBD oil. This is an extract from the marijuana plant that is used for medicinal uses. According to Dr. Stevens, CBD oil can help patients who are on chemotherapy to reduce vomiting and nausea, as well as appetite stimulation in AIDS patients, but there are already FDA approved drugs on the market that can provide what patients need in good quality, a measured dose and where side-effects are known. On the other hand, there are studies that clearly show marijuana is not effective in reducing pain. In fact, it's actually a 'gateway drug' and that your chance of using opioids, either prescription or 'off the street', actually increases remarkably when using marijuana.

As this broadcast moved along, Jim had Dr. Stevens talk about the negative psychological and physical effects, the current problems marijuana is causing with youth in Colorado, where marijuana stands in terms of federal regulation, the tax revenue angle, the large amount of water and electricity it takes to grow marijuana, the Christian perspective on marijuana, and much more.

Politics today is nothing if not full of contradictions.  In this week's boralogue, John looks at the many contradictions that exist with politicians, including the need to label President Trump a dictator all while behaving dictatorially themselves.  Don't pay attention to what politicians say; watch what it is they do.  Study your candidates thoroughly and understand these contradictions when you head to the polls next month.


A leaked document from Google shows that the platform has control of a majority of online conversations and seems to be taking a turn toward censorship.  Allum Bokhari (, Senior Technology Correspondent for Breitbart News, examines the implications from this document. Is there legal recourse for those affected and is there a way to even the social media playing field?


During and since the Kavanaugh circus, law school professors and their students have been stating that there is no need for due process or corroborating evidence.  Heather MacDonald (, Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, discusses how the future of law could be corrupted, how conservatives are treated on campus, and the mysterious world of intersectionality.


Are Christians urged to distance themselves from Israel?  Dexter Van Zile (, Christian Media Analyst for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting, describes how speakers and church leaders at the Christ at the Checkpoint Conference are convincing Christians that in order to convert Muslims to Christianity, they should shun Israel since Muslims are also against them.


John’s quote of the week:    

"Most of the discourse we're engaged in involves clichés.  The argument gets lost and you can't get down to the core questions.  It blocks you from getting to the answers.  When information pops up elsewhere that your opponents would rather keep blocked, they are left with one alternative: to keep you from speaking.  And that's where freedom dies."

In a parable, Jesus taught His disciples how rewards are handed out in the kingdom of God. What He taught seems quite unfair. In this message we look beneath the surface of Jesus’ words for life-changing truth that upends our innate sense of fairness.

Guest: Tom Littleton. Topic: The largest protestant denomination in America, Southern Baptist Convention, that also has bookstores all across America, hosted a conference that featured an admitted gay pastor, by the name of Sam Allberry, calling for families to include same-sex attracted people into their family and to even let them babysit your children.

Today on PTIB Dave James joins Jimmy DeYoung at his Broadcast Table to discuss "Prophecy Conferences that may be dangerous to your Biblical understanding of God's plan for the future". These two Bible Students will discuss the problems of attending any conference, on Prophecy or not, that is without proper accountability could turn out for the attendees, very dangerous, and should be avoided. There is also and exhortation for all of us who are students of the Bible. We will discuss the problem in the local Church, the fact these church Pastors are not teaching Biblical Prophecy, and what that means in this whole context.


Chris discusses the current situation with a migrant caravan of four to five thousand people attempting to invade the United States from Honduras through Mexico. The mass migration of illegals is reportedly the work of the United Nations and their suggested plan for “REPLACEMENT MIGRATION” (as they call it) in response to their claims of population decline in countries like the United States. Is this simply part of a greater plan to subvert America through what can only be called immigration warfare?

Grace alone, faith alone, Christ alone, Scripture alone and the glory of God alone. These “five solas” are the pillars of the Protestant Reformation—heroically restored from the pages of Holy Scripture by the 16th-century Reformers. As we prepare to remember the 501st anniversary of the Reformation on October 31, it is important that we hold these men in the proper, Biblical perspective and judge their teachings according to the perfect rule of Scripture. As much as we might appreciate and respect the Reformers, we realize that only God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! This week on “Encounter God’s Truth” from Whitcomb Ministries, host Wayne Shepherd welcomes back special guest speaker Dr. Andy Woods to conclude his mini-series entitled “Ever Reforming.” Dr. Woods is the author of a book on the Reformation by the same title, and loves studying history in the light of Scripture. The work of reforming the church was not completed in the 16th century. Indeed, it will continue until Christ returns for her! In the meantime, we must be “Ever Reforming.” We trust that this program will encourage you toward that end.

Murder in the Saudi Consulate: Far More than Meets the Eye. We are joined by Dr. Mark Christian (Former Muslim Imam, Exec. Director of “The Global Faith Institute”). Topics discussed include: The Threat: 4000 US Troop to the Border. Exposing Jamal Khashoggi- The Terrorist. The Saudi Dilemma. The Big Question: The Ramifications of a Disgraced Muhammad bin Salmon. Call to prayer for the November mid-term elections.

How should parents react when a child goes their own way, knowing the sorrow that their child will face? Through the parable of the Prodigal Son, we learn deep truths about prodigal children. At the same time, we also learn how to be better parents.

On todays edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has two of his Broadcast Partners, Dr Don DeYoung and his son Jim Jr, it's all DeYoungs this time on PTIB. Jim Jr has a Prophecy question from one of our listeners for his Dad. But first, Jimmy will discuss with Dr DeYoung the thought of "global warming" and the effect it had on the most recent disasters in the Carolina's and the Florida Panhandle; did global warming intensify these storms; the definition of "global warming"; is it real science; what the Bible has to say about global warming; and global warming in the future Tribulation Period.

​Dr. Jason Lisle is a Christian astrophysicist who writes and speaks on topics relating to science and the defense of the Christian faith. He's been working in full-time apologetics ministry specializing in the defense of Genesis. He's written numerous articles and books, including his well-known book, 'The Ultimate Proof of Creation'. Dr. Lisle wrote and directed the popular planetarium shows at the Creation Museum including, 'The Created Cosmos'.

Dr. Lisle described the interesting way he determined the subject matter for his book, 'Keeping Faith in an Age of Reason'. He combed the Internet looking for accusations of contradictions from the Bible. One list in particular had compiled over 400 of these alleged contradictions. That list is the basis for the book.

After analyzing all of them, what did Dr. Lisle find? He discovered that not a single one is a legitimate contradiction when you read the biblical text carefully. For him, what the contradictions list reveals is a deficit in critical thinking skills and that's what he sought to expose. This way Christians would be encouraged by the fact that these accusations against Christianity are not well thought out and researched. So instead of being a list of over 400 Bible contradictions, the list that inspired his book is actually a list of over 400 errors that the critics make when they argue against the Christians worldview.

So what is a contradiction? Dr. Lisle began by noting that a difference is not necessarily a contradiction. Someone may witness a car accident and say the car was red. Another person may say the car was fast. This is a difference but it's not a contradiction. Each person reported different information, yet those two things are compatible. The car can be both fast and red.

A contradiction is where you have 'A' and 'Not A' at the same time and in the same sense or relationship. You can usually make a contradiction by adding 'It is not the case that...' in front of it. So if you say that it's raining outside, the contradiction would be, 'It is not the case that it is raining outside.' Those two things cannot be both true at the same time and in the same sense.

Another way to look at this is the idea of marriage. A person could be married in one sense and not married in a different sense. So Dr. Lisle might say he's not married in the sense that he doesn't have a wife but he is married to his work. That's a different sense of the term.

What this points to is that when it comes to contradictions, often times it's just a compatible difference. That accounts for many errors that critics make when they allege that the Bible has many contradictions. In fact, Dr. Lisle enjoyed researching the alleged contradictions in the gospels for that reason, because when you flesh them out you see that there's a reason why God presented that historical information from four different viewpoints. It gives readers a much richer and fuller picture than we would get if we just had one point of view.

Another problem comes into play when our minds/imaginations fill in certain details that aren't part of the text. Then we read a different account and it doesn't contradict the text, it contradicts those details that our imagination has supplied. At that point we need to go back to that first account and find out what the text really said and figure out what we may have imported into it.

This is a fascinating program that moves along to educate listeners regarding a number of factors that cause critics of the Bible to stumble. They include the bifurcation fallacy, the subset fallacy, quantitative differences, the argument from silence, the semantic anachronism fallacy, and more.
