❖ Dr. Richard G. Lee
How can America’s true history be told in a way that completely ignores this nation’s rich Judeo-Christian heritage? And yet most of us grew up never hearing about the importance of the Bible in the creation of our nation. One pastor is very familiar with the topic and has written books on it, including In God We Still Trust. Dr. Richard G. Lee is the founding pastor of First Redeemer Church in the greater Atlanta area. He has served as President of the Pastor’s Conference of the Southern Baptist Convention. He is a Christian broadcaster with “There’s Hope America” for television and radio outlets. He has compiled The American Patriot’s Bible, serving as its General Editor. Dr. Richard G. Lee joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the Christian roots of America. www.thereshope.org
❖ Dr. Gregg Jantz
America has a major problem with addictions of all kinds these days. Dr. Gregg Jantz, author of the book, Healing the Scars of Addiction, notes: “Addiction… is a strong compulsion to do something harmful. It affects the brain’s supply and utilization of neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, the brain’s feel-good chemical.” Dr. Gregg Jantz is a certified eating disorder specialist, certified chemical dependency counselor, a nationally certified psychologist, and a licensed mental health counselor. The author of twenty-eight books, Dr. Jantz is the founder of “The Center – A place of Hope” (listed as one of the top 10 facilities for treatment of depression in the United States). Dr. Gregg Jantz joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss various addictions, from a Christian perspective. www.aplaceofhope.com www.drgregoryjantz.com
❖ Danny Yohannan
Leprosy is a scourge we read about in the Bible. But does it still exist today? Yes, and apparently 200,000 new cases were added in 2016 alone…mostly in India. To combat leprosy in the name of Christ is Gospel for Asia, which was founded by Dr. K. P. Yohannan. Dr. Yohannan said, “Eliminating discrimination and false conceptions of leprosy is key to eliminating the disease itself. All too frequent are ‘the stories of men and women abandoned by their spouses, in-laws, or even kicked out of their homes by their children.’” Danny Yohannan is K. P.’s son as well as the Vice President of Gospel for Asia. Danny Yohannan joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the issue of leprosy and what Christians are doing to combat it. www.gfa.org
❖ Paul Blair
Sadly, about half a year ago, a supposedly conservative Presbyterian church in the St. Louis area held a “Revoice” conference on the subject of homosexuality and Christians and the LGBTQ+ community. Apparently, the conference undermined what the Bible says on the subject in favor of the modern cultural view of acceptance without repentance. To object to this, some black and white Christian leaders recently held a “Gone2Far Press Conference on the subject, and they are putting together a “God’s Voice Conference.” Paul Blair, an Oklahoma minister, who leads “Reclaiming America for Christ”-Oklahoma, is one of the key organizers of these things. Paul Blair joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss how the love of God in Christ is available to sinners of all kinds who come to faith in Him, repenting of their sins. www.gone2far.org www.godsvoice.us
