Andy Keener

Wycliffe Bible translators note, “Bible translation is saving endangered languages from extinction, a problem that the U.N. called special attention to by declaring 2019 the ‘Year of Indigenous Languages’….In order to translate the Bible, Wycliffe’s missionaries must invent an alphabet, preserving the language in the process. For example, Wycliffe’s 1000th Bible translation saved the Keliko language in Africa in this way.” Andy Keener is the Senior Director of Global Partnerships for Wycliffe Bible Translators USA. He worked for a while in the Panamanian jungle to translate the Bible into a then-unwritten language. Andy Keener joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the work of Bible translation—and what is yet to be done.

Jannique Stewart

Recently, pro-life apologist and advocate, Jannique Stewart, was invited and then disinvited from speaking at Cornell University in a debate on the issue of abortion. What allegedly got her “disqualified” from speaking was that they found from her website (it’s no secret) that she holds to a biblical view of marriage (that sex should be between one man and one woman and only in the context of marriage). This view is held by millions of Americans, but it was so supposedly offensive that the students at Cornell could not tolerate her lecture, knowing she believed these things. Tyler O’Neil wrote about her case in PJ Media  “Black Christian Disinvited from Cornell Because She Believes in Traditional Marriage.” Jerry Newcombe adds: “I know Jannique Stewart. We have had her come and speak on abortion at our church at least twice at our quarterly ‘Salt and Light’ functions. She’s terrific.” Jannique Stewart joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss this “disturbing trend of silencing conservative Christians on university campuses in the United States.”

John Tamny

Economist Steve Moore is under consideration for serving on the Federal Reserve, Moore, incidentally, has been an occasional guest on Vocal Point. One of his colleagues at FreedomWorks is John Tamny, Director of the Center for Economic Freedom at the organization. Tamny believes that Moore’s critics have much to learn from Moore’s economic views, as he wrote recently for RealClearMarkets : “Economic growth is the enemy of rising prices, not an author of them. The Fed’s models are flamboyantly backwards.” John Tamny joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss Steve Moore, the Trump economy, and the Fed.

Art Moore

The world mourns the loss of Notre Dame—850 years of history, going up in smoke in one day. Thankfully, there will be massive restoration efforts. So far, it is understood that the cause of the fire was some sort of accident from workers therein. Prior to its burning on April 15, 2019, there have been a couple of direct attacks against the cathedral by some Islamic extremists that were thankfully thwarted. Meanwhile, WorldNetDaily notes that there have been many attacks against churches in France recently. They go largely underreported because they allegedly came from Muslim migrants. They write: “Nearly 2,000 Christian houses of worship in France have been desecrated in the past two years, according to police. In Germany, there were four such incidents in March.” Art Moore, writer for, joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss these attacks against the French churches (including historic cathedrals) that are not widely reported.
