It is interesting how two people can view the same exact facts and evidence, yet come to two completely different conclusions based on those facts. Born-again believers look at the wonders of this world and the created universe completely convinced it was all crafted by an amazing God. But atheists and skeptics look at the same evidence and facts and conclude that it all happened out of random chance and chaos.
As the world started introducing ideas such as free sexual expression in the 1960s and gender fluidity in the 2000s, they touted the benefits of experimentation while we as born-again believers saw serious dangers. In our final, segment, Mike and David will share some of the effects of this movement to see who was right.
But first, Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries joins the program to talk about how Christians can use the evidence of creation all around us to point people to the truth of God and His Word.

A public school district in Georgia is under fire after a five-year old-girl said she was sexually assaulted by a transgender student in the school restroom.
Despite a plea from parents in 2016, the public school district follows a transgender-friendly policy that allowed the male student to enter the girls’ restroom without being punished. The same policy also requires male students to be addressed by a female pronoun, and allows male students to participate in female sports team and to room with females on school trips.
Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christiana Holcomb tells OneNewsNow that City Schools of Decatur refused to investigate the girl’s claims of assault, which is required under Title IX, and has refused to change the policy that affects approximately 5,600 students at nine schools.
“And they even refused to remove the little boy from the little girl’s classroom,” Holcomb alleges.
Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, says the “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior” study can incorrectly pressure parents to put their children through radical transition-affirming therapies, when there is no proof that will prevent suicides. She says other factors must be considered.
“What I contend is that there are underlying issues that the children are dealing with that leads to depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and their gender dysphoria,” she tells OneNewsNow.
