Big Government and Small Citizens

Big Government and Small Citizens

Gary answers a listener question about the tension between God’s kingdom and man’s kingdom. Christians have always challenged the world when it was deep in the stench of paganism and ideological darkness. In the past, such conditions have brought out the best in the Christian worldview and those who extended it to the broader culture. Christianity infused the world with the light of th [...]

MovieGuide and Worldviews

MovieGuide and Worldviews

Gary interviews Dr. Ted Baehr about movies and his current work, as well as his own personal history with the film industry. Most evangelicals tend to think in “words.” This is certainly understandable because of the Protestant focus on the Bible as the sole authority (sola Scriptura) and the Lutheran concept of the “priesthood of all believers.” When this is applied to storytelling and film, this [...]

American History with Bill Federer

American History with Bill Federer

Gary interviews author and speaker Bill Federer on today’s episode. The story of Christianity in America is one of the most astonishing chapters in the annals of the world. The events of Providence in reserving and preparing the country of these United States to be the theater of its development and triumph, constitute one of the most remarkable passages of modern history. This is a Christia [...]

Leftist Selective Outrage Over Rosaries, Flags, and Words

Leftist Selective Outrage Over Rosaries, Flags, and Words

When the political party supported by the Left is in power, leftists believe any criticism of their policies is like an armed insurrection. The protests by some on January 6, 2021, have been depicted as a full-scale revolution designed to take over the existing government while numerous violent protests, burned buildings, and dead police officers across the United States in the past two years have [...]

Using the Bible to Support Abortion

Using the Bible to Support Abortion

Gary points out recent leftist abortion hypocrisy of attempting to appeal to the Bible on today’s episode. No one in his right mind would want to rehabilitate the reputations of Stalin, Mussolini, or Hitler. Their barbarism, treachery, and debauchery will make their names live in infamy forever. Amazingly though, Margaret Sanger has somehow escaped their wretched fate. In spite of the fact t [...]

Can Christians Judge People Outside the Church?

Can Christians Judge People Outside the Church?

There’s a Christian on Facebook who keeps using 1 Corinthians 5:12-13 to defend his claim that Christians cannot and should not judge people who are not Christians. This means that if a homosexual asks for a cake or flowers for a same-sex wedding, the Christian baker and the Christian florist must comply based on the following: “For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Do you not judge those [...]

A Monumental Shift

A Monumental Shift

Gary interviews Kirk Cameron briefly about the influence of Marshall Foster and the application of the biblical worldview to all of life. Early in the nineteenth century, a blasphemer in New York thought that religion and politics did not mix. “Nonsense, ruled Justice James Kent, for the people need religion and morality ‘to bind society together.’ He then added: ‘The people of this state, in comm [...]

Black Elites Promote Abortion in the Name of God

Black Elites Promote Abortion in the Name of God

The “Rev.” Al Sharpton urged Democrats to “message” abortion “in a way that it is about choice. It’s not about saying … I support abortion or not.” For Sharpton, abortion (killing babies developing in their mother’s womb) is about “whether they’re going to have a safe abortion [killing unborn babies]. We always had abortions [women killing their unborn babies/we also always had slavery], but we ha [...]

The Failure of Christian Socialism

The Failure of Christian Socialism

The recent passing of Ronald Sider is an opportunity for Gary to tell the sad history of Christian socialism in America. In 1972, a collection of articles by F. A. Hayek was published in Great Britain: A Tiger by the Tail. It was on central bank inflation. The tiger today is much larger. It is much more dangerous. The world is still on the tiger’s back. Money is the most marketable commodity. [...]

The Anti-Morality of Abortion

The Anti-Morality of Abortion

Gary discusses recent comments coming from rabid pro-abortionists about their dissatisfaction with the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision in June. Former seminary and college professor Tremper Longman III claimed that pro-abortion advocate Joe Biden “is a devout Christian by all accounts.” All accounts? Supporting abortion on demand is not in any way a Christian view. The Democratic Party platfo [...]

The Storyteller of America's Christian History

The Storyteller of America's Christian History

Gary relates a few memories of Marshall Foster and how he was instrumental in the beginnings of American Vision. In 1976, Dr. Marshall Foster founded the World History Institute, a nonprofit educational foundation, to teach the biblical and historical foundations of liberty. Dr. Foster trained tens of thousands through live seminars in 40 states, Canada, and Europe. He was the co-host of a weekly [...]

Churches and Worldview Training

Churches and Worldview Training

Gary discusses several recent instances of Christians not being able to answer basic challenges to a biblical worldview. Many Christians seem to believe that thinking is an act of unbelief. They do not even begin to understand how the Bible might apply, for example, to science, economics, politics, law, or education. They might have opinions about these topics but no formulated, thought-out biblic [...]

Failed Attempts to Discredit the Bible on Homosexuality

Failed Attempts to Discredit the Bible on Homosexuality

I saw the following post on Facebook by a woman who identifies as a Christian. It’s typical of the barely literate when it comes to the Bible: “Jesus said absolutely nothing about homosexuality.” Following this line of argument, that if Jesus didn’t say it, it’s not a law, one could claim that tripping blind people, rape, pedophilia, cannibalism, not having a fence around an open pit or roof, kidn [...]

America is NOT a Christian Nation

America is NOT a Christian Nation

Gary responds to a Facebook commenter who claimed America was not founded as a Christian nation. A single line in the first Treaty of Tripoli (ratified June 10, 1797) is often cited as incontrovertible evidence that our founders self-consciously denied any attachment to the Christian religion, and that there is a radical separation between religion and civil government. This conclusion is based up [...]

The Five-Point Covenant

The Five-Point Covenant

In this rebroadcast, Gary DeMar sits down with the late Dr. Gary North for a discussion about the five-point covenant model. In The Godfather books and films, Don Corleone is a lot like today’s politicians. He’s the man in charge. He grants political favors. He makes and enforces laws. He even collects taxes. The Mafia is run like a government. Five Points of Government Vito Corleone b [...]

The Attacks on Crisis Pregnancy Centers

The Attacks on Crisis Pregnancy Centers

Did you read in the news about the three mosques in the U.S. that were set on fire just the other weekend? Did you hear in the mainstream media about the scores of attacks, including some firebombings, of the Planned Parenthood facilities by pro-life extremists? Did you hear about the harassment of pro-abortion politicians and judges for their pro-abortion stance? You didn’t? Neither did I, becaus [...]

The Impact of Christianity on the Western World

The Impact of Christianity on the Western World

The church has a long history of applying the Bible to all of life. “Throughout American history, the moral principles of Judeo-Christian ethics have been used as one of many effective tools to evaluate and reform a wide variety of social structures, and have continued to be invoked in political debates.”[1] This perspective is best exemplified in the life and work of the Puritans who applied the [...]

Evolution is a Religion

Evolution is a Religion

Gary shows how to force unbelievers to live consistently with their stated anti-God beliefs. All worldviews are by definition belief systems. A person does not have to believe in God to be considered religious. John H. Dietrich, for example, admits that he is a religious humanist. For centuries the idea of God has been the very heart of religion; it has been said, “No God, no religion.” But human [...]

Dobbs and What Comes Next

Dobbs and What Comes Next

Gary discusses the recent Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v Wade and what it means and what comes next. As citizens of political jurisdictions, Christians must submit themselves to those who rule because God has established the civil realm by His own sovereign will (Rom. 13:1). Keep in mind, however, that civil authorities are not absolute in the way they exercise their authority since they a [...]

The Founding of America

The Founding of America

Gary discusses the early history of the colonies, and how they founded their laws and constitutions on the Bible. A misconception is held by many that the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence was the beginning of our nation. Abraham’s Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address” (Nov. 19, 1863) contributes to the confusion with the opening line: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers bro [...]
