Gregory Wrightstone – Topic: Climate Change

Are we all going to die because of climate change? Well, apparently the answer is “Yes” according to the rising Democrat star in the U. S. House of Representatives, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She is calling on her fellow Democrats to create a “Green New Deal” to combat climate change. The Daily Wire notes, that according to CNN, “the US Global Change Research Program estimates tens of thousands of ‘premature deaths’ from the effects of climate change, including deaths from starvation, mosquito-borne illnesses, extreme heat, flooding and other natural disasters.” Is that true? How are we to process all this? Gregory Wrightstone, an earth scientist with 35 plus years’ experience (as a geologist), feels that climate change alarmism is distorting the facts. Gregory Wrightstone, author of Inconvenient Facts: The Science that Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know, joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the issue of climate change and the wildly exaggerated claims about it.

Wesley J. Smith – Topic: Euthanasia

Trending: New Jersey Democrats Declare Open Season on Elderly, Chronically Ill and Disabled

Euthanasia is a word derived from the Greek which means “good death.” It refers to mercy killing. Canada has been practicing euthanasia for a few years now. Are they planning to extend such mercy-killing to children? Bioethicist and author Wesley J. Smith warns about potential plans being made for our northern neighbor to do just that. In an article in National Review, Smith writes, “In refusing to oppose legalization or, indeed, to make even one substantive argument against its moral propriety, the society implicitly endorses a policy that would allow sick and disabled children to be killed.” Wesley J. Smith, a senior fellow at the Discovery Institute, joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss euthanasia and children.

Dennis Ayers – Topic: Political Correctness  

Dennis Ayers is a lawyer and a retired hospital administrator. He has written a book  called The Beginning of Wisdom. It deals with the cultural battle, spiritual conflict that we see raging in our time. One of the chapters is entitled, “Rejecting the Devil’s Etiquette,” which is Ayers’ phrase for political correctness. Dennis Ayers joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the spiritual battle we’re in as a nation and the problem of political correctness run amok.

Peter Lillback – Topic: America’s Christian Roots. A focus on William Penn, the minister founder of Pennsylvania

Dr. Peter Lillback, the president of Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia), is the founder and president of Providence Forum. Together with Jerry Newcombe, Dr. Lillback wrote a book that became a bestseller on the faith of our nation’s found father, George Washington’s Sacred Fire (2006). The two authors put together 26 podcasts on the faith of George Washington from virtually every angle. Now they continue with a new series of podcasts on the faith of our founding fathers. This particular discussion focuses on the life and work of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania and his “holy experiment.” Penn helped create the future of the United States in a very positive direction, based on Christian principles. www.providenceforum.orgelections.
