It's common today to refer to Christianity, Judaism, and Islam collectively as the Abrahamic religions. Is there a reason for this? Joining us today from Melbourne, Australia is Mark Durie (markdurie.com), Director of the Institute for Spiritual Awareness. There are clear differences between the faiths and its important to have honest conversations about not only current issues but also their history if we're going to understand those differences. Often politically correct pressure gets in the way, people start screaming about extremism and hate, and suddenly respecting someone whose beliefs you don't agree with becomes impossible. Let's have that honest conversation today.
John is back with Lee Lancaster at the KYMS studios here in the Inland Northwest – and he brought someone with him. A special guest has finally arrived in the U.S. – that’s right, Pastor X is here and we finally learn his real name! He relates first-hand accounts of the troubles Christians go through in Pakistan and the incredible, inspiring journey that he and his family experienced that culminated in their arrival in the United States last week. John goes on to list several examples of Christian persecution from around the world and asks for prayer for all of them. You can join our Praying for Persecuted Christians Facebook group for more information and stories from around the world.
Some topics are easy to debate – persecution, anti-Constitutional measures, even civil asset forfeiture. But other topics can be difficult to discuss because they are difficult to hear. One of those is antisemitism on the part of the Christian community. Does it happen? Here today to dissect this issue is author and commentator Olivier Melnick (newantisemitism.com). Have Christians persecuted Jews in the past because of verses in the Bible? Was it because they had a hand in killing Christ? Was it because they were Jewish or for some other reason? Olivier discusses all of this plus the history of anti-Jewish acts all the way up to today.
There is no absolute truth, Marxists tell us, unless of course it's about narratives they want you to believe. In this week's boralogue, John looks at the reality behind climate change narratives, including how eliminating energy and transportation industries will lead to far more deaths than the supposed ones brought about by climate change. There is much hysterbole happening with climate change, so much so that we can't get past the narrative to look at the truth.
The climate change battle is being waged on many fronts, including in the courtroom. Author and environmentalist Dr. Tim Ball describes his victory in a defamation lawsuit, but in the war against so-called 'climate deniers,' the penalty is the process as the global warming crowd uses lawfare to stifle discussion and debate.
The weaponization of justice extends beyond climate, though, and nowhere is that more evident than in the case of former Congressman Steve Stockman. His wife, conservative activist Patti Stockman (defendapatriot.com), joins us to discuss how the Obama administration targeted her husband because he spoke out against corruption.
After John describes the battle between President Trump and the Fed ahead of the 2020 election, he welcomes back to the program Vishal Mangalwadi (www.revelationmovement.com), President and Founder of the Book of the Revelation Movement. Vishal examines the origins of freedom, based on the truth of God in the Bible.
John's quote of the week:
"The global temperatures in the Middle Ages were as high as or even higher than they are now. They went down in the 1700s; that was called the Maunder Minimum. Then they started back up again, long before the introduction of carbon dioxide in large amounts into the atmosphere. This is the result preceding the cause."
In this week's Extras segment, we play John's latest appearance on KYMS radio where John and the host, Lee, discuss the Marxist infiltration of language in society and John gives a martyred church update.
