❖ Glenn Stanton – Is the American Church Dying?
Is the Church in America growing or is it dying? Glenn Stanton, author of the upcoming book, The Myth of the Dying Church, writes that the church is growing, in America. In a recent article in the Federalist he notes: “Religious faith in America is going the way of the Yellow Pages and travel maps, we keep hearing. It’s just a matter of time until Christianity’s total and happy extinction, chortle our cultural elites. Is this true? Is churchgoing and religious adherence really in ‘widespread decline’ so much so that conservative believers should suffer ‘growing anxiety’? Two words: Absolutely not. New research published late last year by scholars at Harvard University and Indiana University Bloomington is just the latest to reveal the myth.” [Emphasis his] Glenn Stanton, who works at Focus on the Family, joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the state of the Church in America. www.focusonthefamily.org
❖ Dr. David Ayers – Marriage
“Why should we care about marriage? Much confusion exists today about the purpose of marriage—outside the church as well as within it.” So notes the back cover of a new book on marriage by Dr. David J. Ayers, a sociology professor at Grove City College in Pennsylvania. Dr. Ayers notes that so many of our problems get back to the breakdown of the family. And the breakdown of the family often begins within marriage. Ayers’ book addresses the what ‘s and why’s of biblical marriage. He discusses premarital preparation, divorce and remarriage, the effects of divorce, and “the Beautiful Order of Christian Marriage.” This book reflects three decades of study on marriage and the family. Dr. David Ayers joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss Christian marriage. @davidayers
❖ Bishop E. W. Jackson – Trump and racism
Is Trump a racist? To hear the mainstream media tell it, one would think the answer is an obvious “Yes.” Bishop E. W. Jackson, author and speaker, is the founder and president of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny). The mission of STAND is “to bring Americans together across racial and cultural lines to preserve our Judeo-Christian heritage and values.” Jackson commented on the recent story with the allegation of Jussie Smollet being assaulted by Trump-supporters because he’s black and gay: “The mainstream media were all too happy to embrace any story that promotes their belief that President Trump and his supporters are racist and ‘homophobic.’ That is why Jussie lied – to prove that leftist disdain for our country is entirely justified. Smollett undoubtedly wanted his scheme to embarrass the President…” Bishop E. W. Jackson joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss Smollet and allegations of Trump being racist. www.standamerica.us
❖ Peter Breen – Abortion
There is a great divide in America regarding abortion. One strongly pro-life Illinois politician, Peter Breen, lost his seat in the state legislature, in the recent midterm elections. But before he did, a pro-abortion politician actually wished Breen a horrible death—on the legislature floor I understand she apologized; nonetheless, those who clamor for tolerance today seem to be the least likely to practice it. Peter Breen is the Vice President and Senior Counsel of the Thomas More Society, which exists to fight for life and liberty in America. The governor of Illinois has said that he wants the land of Lincoln to be totally pro-abortion—including making the taxpayers fund it. Peter Breen joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss proposed pro-abortion measures in Illinois. www.thomasmoresociety.org
