People see disrespect of the flag, one of the most loved symbols that identify us as a united people. Onlookers don’t understand why young, wealthy, elite pro football players and teams are protesting – but they most likely perceive it has something to do with Trump and the government.

They see a revolution brewing, and unlike most Americans, people in other countries know about revolutions. Many did not end well. So here we are watching to see what NFL owners and players will do next while a literal mad man with nukes in North Korea could literally send the world into unprecedented calamity and upheaval.

You don’t think the world interprets these public protests differently than how they are intended?

Last weekend, NFL football players over in London knelt during the National Anthem prior to a game at Wembley stadium. And if that wasn’t embarassing enough, those same American athletes then stood up for the playing of Britain’s anthem, God Save the Queen. You tell me, what message does this send to the world?

More importantly, I wonder how American war veterans feel about all this. And what about those still serving our country, fighting for our interests in other nations?

The British newspaper, The Guardian’s headline told us how they see it with the headline:

“NFL players kneel for anthem in unprecedented defiance of Trump.”

The world is watching and so are American children. Some still have no idea what the protest is all about. In a nation as divided politically, spiritually, and racially, I wish I could be more optimistic, but I do believe in God’s sovereignty in all things. Let’s pray that somehow this will lead more people to the only true source of peace, Jesus Christ.

Friday is typically the day when we turn the show over to you, our listeners to discuss any topic you want. Some of the issues you want to discuss today include:

The ongoing NFL protest controversy
Free Masonry
Will American Christian Churches ever return to a biblical model for church? 
The continuing gifts of the Holy Spirit vs. the teaching of "cessationism"
The New Apostolic Reform Movement, 
and, how do we speak the truth in love when the other side wants to shut us down?
Before we get to your questions, we have a special guest on the program today - and we've been trying to get this man back for about 10 months. In our first segment, we welcome back Amir Tsarfati of Behold Israel Ministries to discuss world events in light of Scripture, the increasing pressure on Israel, the Interpol vote at the U.N. to accept a "state of Palestine," Europe being ready for the Antichrist, witches putting hexes on President Trump, and unfolding events in the Middle East that point to biblical prophecy.

Intensified Attacks on Religious Freedom

The attacks on the religious freedom of Christians are increasing in frequency and severity. From the media to government and public education to the ACLU and Freedom From Religion Foundation, Christians are being told that their deeply held beliefs and biblical values are no longer welcome in the public square.

The Bible gives us fair warning that the last days would be like this; so how do we balance the fight for our religious freedom as Americans while preparing for the day when we are told in no uncertain terms to “shut up and conform” or else?

Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute has been on the front lines for the battle for religious freedom for many years, and this morning Brad joins us for an update.

Ignoring & Mocking Biblical Prophecy

Bible prophecy is a crucial topic for the serious disciple of Jesus Christ. Our Lord and Savior has warned us of what is to come so we can be prepared for a world that will turn its back on Him and persecute those who trust in Him. But to the very end he is faithful and will save those who trust in Him. A growing number of Christian churches ignore prophecy, allowing members to remain ignorant of the Lord's warnings. Some are even fulfilling the prophetic warning of the apostle Peter who said there will be mockers dismissing the warning of Christ's return to judge all men.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and Understanding the Times radio joins us to discuss her latest DVD project about the attacks on Bible prophecy and why it is being increasingly ignored or scorned by some Christian leaders. "How the Blessed Hope Became the Blasted Hope."

In our final segment we discuss another premeditated attack - a shooting of Christians in a Tennessee church over the weekend, the annual See You at the Pole event scheduled for this week in public schools around the country, and a women's basketball coach whose job offer was rescinded from New Mexico State University after they found out she is no longer a lesbian.

Christians Weigh in on the National Anthem/NFL Controversy

Our nation has been in steady decline over the past fifty to seventy-five years. A nation, claiming in the past it was established under the guidance of God and His principles, has increasingly abandoned His ways. We have aborted more than 55 million children, redefined marriage to fit our humanist beliefs, and now actually encourage young people to defy the gender God has assigned them. We also face terrorist threats and world powers with nuclear weapons intent on our destruction as division and chaos grows within our nation.

Is the friction reaching a boiling point with the recent controversies over The National Anthem protests? President Trump, true to his nature, couldn't resist criticizing the NFL players who have protested and challenged NFL owners to "fire them" if they continue to protest. Some are applauding his bold statements; others wish he would keep his mouth shut and not be compelled to comment on so many issues.

Now you may think that this issue has nothing to do with Christians, but it might well affect our freedom of religious expression down the road and impede our ability to publicly share the gospel of salvation.

In our first segment, we continue with listener comments and questions we did not get to last Friday. IN our second and third segments, we dive into the debate on how Christians should respond to the NFL football/National Anthem issue. On our Facebook page this morning, dozens of you weighed in on the controversy about NFL players protesting and we address many of your comments.

Today is your program, when we read and address your questions and comments and together look to God's Word for the answers. Some of today's topics include:

The timing of the rapture of the church.
The doctrine of "once saved always saved."
Discrimination against Christian teachers in public schools.

In our first segment, Todd Friel of Wretched Radio checks in with us. We discuss finding a proper balance when sharing the gospel or speaking the truth - and doing so in love and humility.

All Eyes on Israel; Nabeel Qureshi, and Pastor’s Wives

The Bible is clear that in the final years before the Lord's return, Israel will be ground zero for activity ushering in His return. Jerusalem is called a stumbling block to the world and these days approximately 25% of all discussion within the United Nations focuses on the conflict between Israel and her neighbors who have publicly stated they want it wiped off the map.

We also remember apologist, #Nabeel Qureshi (34) and his conversion from Islam, his heart for ministry, and his legacy. After a year long battling stomach cancer, Nabeel left to be with the Lord last Saturday. We also discussed the expectations the church generally places on pastors and specifically, their wives! There is not enough attention paid to the importance of loving, praying for and supporting them.

We're joined on air by Jim Fletcher of Prophecy Matters to discuss the importance of Israel, Jerusalem, Damascas, and the Middle east in light of Bible prophecy. We also debunk the September 23 prediction of the rapture or apocalypse.

When Objectivity Sells out to Blatant Bias

Media has historically been referred to as the "fourth leg of our republic" because of its ability and past willingness to accurately report news and uncover hidden agendas within government. But what happens when the media decides to drive its own agenda instead of reporting news? The abortion worldview is one that is defended and promoted via most media outlets either directly or indirectly. Many feel we are seeing the results: a hard left turn toward progressive ideology and socialism in our nation.

Joining us to discuss bias and agendas within the media is Katie Yoder, Associate Culture Editor of Media Research Center. Has responsible journalism permanently left the building within mainstream media? Yes.

The Nonsense of “Christians Shouldn’t Judge”

One of the most misleading statements infiltrating much of the Christian Church these days is the statement that "Christians shouldn't judge." This misrepresentation of God's Word has been used to excuse sinful behavior and render us ineffective in living lives of holiness and sharing the gospel with the lost. In reality, the Bible teaches us that Christians should be discerning and use sound judgment in our decisions every day, from the choices we make to our interactions with believers and unbelievers. What we judge and how we judge is where the rubber meets the road.

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us this morning to look at what the bible teaches us about making judgment on our own actions and the actions of others, believers and unbelievers.

Christians, Public Education, and Divisive Doctrine

We have all heard the sad statistics that a majority of young Christians leave their faith by the time they leave high school. Many more walk away from God after one year of college. And while there are certainly several factors in play, one that is often sited is public education and its clearly secular humanist agenda. Public school teachers are often accused of lying to students, particularly regarding evolution, but are they part of the agenda or do they really believe it?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to look at this issue and discuss the importance of biblical doctrine--even if it might sometimes be seen as divisive.
