Israel, America in the Era of Obama

The strong relationship between Israel and the United States had long been a given, with past presidents from George Washington to Harry Truman affirming shared values and biblical foundations, but this bond has been weakening in recent years, a process that has only accelerated during the Obama administration. Our guest today is David Rubin, President of the Israeli Children’s Fund and author of the book, The Islamic Tsunami: Israel And America In The Age Of Obama. Rubin is also the former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, and he’ll join us to explose what he calls the threat to Judeo-Christian civilization posed by Islamic aggression, both violent and non-violent.

Exposing the Emergent Church Movement (Part 2)

Today we want to wrap up our discussion on Humanism and the Emergent Church.Then after our first break we’re going to talk about a topic that hits close to home but could (and sadly does) happen anywhere. A school district faced a challenge from some parents about a controversial book that is set to be introduced to incoming Freshmen next school year. You can read about that here. Note that there isn’t too much publicized yet in the national media, but just wait. Many parents are upset that they were uninformed and are learning about this in the local newspaper rather from their school board representatives. __________________________________________________________ For our first discussion, some definitions: Christian Humanism is the belief that human freedom and individualism are intrinsic (natural) parts of, or are at least compatible with, Christian doctrine and practice.

Exposing the Emergent Church Movement (Part 1)

What exactly is Humanism and why do we as Christians need to be on guard?  There are many kinds of humanism—secular, religious, Marxist and Renaissance humanism to name a few.
