Same Facts, Different Conclusions

It is interesting how two people can view the same exact facts and evidence, yet come to two completely different conclusions based on those facts.  Born-again believers look at the wonders of this world and the created universe completely convinced it was all crafted by an amazing God.  But atheists and skeptics look at the same evidence and facts and conclude that it all happened out of random chance and chaos.

As the world started introducing ideas such as free sexual expression in the 1960s and gender fluidity in the 2000s, they touted the benefits of experimentation while we as born-again believers saw serious dangers.  In our final, segment, Mike and David will share some of the effects of this movement to see who was right.

But first, Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries joins the program to talk about how Christians can use the evidence of creation all around us to point people to the truth of God and His Word.

Dept. of Ed investigating alleged assault by ‘gender fluid’ boy

A public school district in Georgia is under fire after a five-year old-girl said she was sexually assaulted by a transgender student in the school restroom.

Despite a plea from parents in 2016, the public school district follows a transgender-friendly policy that allowed the male student to enter the girls’ restroom without being punished. The same policy also requires male students to be addressed by a female pronoun, and allows male students to participate in female sports team and to room with females on school trips.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christiana Holcomb tells OneNewsNow that City Schools of Decatur refused to investigate the girl’s claims of assault, which is required under Title IX, and has refused to change the policy that affects approximately 5,600 students at nine schools.

“And they even refused to remove the little boy from the little girl’s classroom,” Holcomb alleges.

Parents facing incorrect pressure to affirm transition

Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, says the “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior” study can incorrectly pressure parents to put their children through radical transition-affirming therapies, when there is no proof that will prevent suicides. She says other factors must be considered.

“What I contend is that there are underlying issues that the children are dealing with that leads to depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and their gender dysphoria,” she tells OneNewsNow.

Are we Medicating Ourselves into an Intellectual Coma?

Watch television for any length of time and you are sure to see ads for new medications promising to make your life better.  And while many of these drugs have dangerous side effects, the Pharmaceutical Industry continues to make billions of dollars peddling the latest “cure” for the latest problems of life.  Anti-depression medications have saturated the market and record numbers of American children are now being medicated for ADHD.  Today, Mike and David discuss the dangers of over-medication and the long term effects on mental health.

On a related subject we look at two interesting, yet very sad articles that are becoming all too common in these days.  First, the number of young girls struggling with “gender identity” is skyrocketing; and second, a professor in Sweden is under attack for stating something so obvious that only a fool would argue that he is wrong.  Is there a connection between over medication and the intellectual insanity permeating every aspect of society?

WALSH: We Have Turned Childhood Into A Mental Disorder. And It’s Ruining Our Kids

According to a report, there has been a dramatic rise in children misusing and overdosing on ADHD medications. I happened to see that report a day after I read another study revealing an increased risk for obesity and diabetes in kids who take ADHD meds. This is not to be confused with the recent research showing that ADHD drugs could be linked to brittle bones. These must all be added, of course, to the cacophony of already known side effects, including insomnia, irritability, decreased appetite, depression, and suicidal thoughts.

Maybe this is why a majority of kids diagnosed with ADHD wind up developing other mental illnesses as they grow older. Pharmaceutical companies cite that latter detail as proof of the biological basis of ADHD. I think it is much easier to see it as proof of the pharmacological basis for the mysterious rise in mental illnesses across America. Drug companies and the psychiatric industry have so far gotten almost 20 percent of the country onto psychiatric drugs. Many of these drugs cause suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and depression. Meanwhile, a lot of Americans are having suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and depression. One need not be a detective to notice a potential causal relationship here.

All the Cool Girls are Transitioning: An Epidemic of Teenage Gender Confusion

The Economist recently reported a flood of adolescent girls seeking treatment for gender dysphoria over the last eight years. In 2009, less than half—41  percent—of teens walking through the doors of gender clinics in the U.K. were female. But by 2017, that number jumped to almost 70 percent.

Now, if gender dysphoria—feeling yourself to be the opposite gender from your biological sex—were actually something innate to the human condition as trans activists claim, we’d expect these numbers to remain consistent and roughly balanced between boys and girls. But they’re not.

Valentines Spark Federal Lawsuit for Free Speech

A student has reluctantly sued her school in Wisconsin after officials told her she could not hand out valentines with Bible verses on them.

Polly Olsen has handed out valentines on Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s campus for years to share her Christian faith. But WBAY TV reports that campus security apprehended her this Valentine’s Day, telling her she was outside approved speech zones without prior permission.

Chelsea Clinton Says Overturning Roe v. Wade Would Be ‘Unchristian’

Chelsea Clinton continued her public opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh last week, this time saying that rolling back abortion rights would be “unconscionable” and “unchristian.”

…“That’s unconscionable to me, and also, and I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also unchristian to me.”

Clinton’s “wave of hate” comments refer to the backlash she recently faced after advocating an economic argument for abortion. She told a crowd at a “Rise up for Roe” event in New York that women entering the workforce because they have access to abortion likely added 3.5 trillion dollars to the economy.

Assessing The Jack Phillips Supreme Court Decision

Jack Phillips, the Colorado cake baker, won his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday in a 7-2 ruling some are calling “narrow.” Phillips was fined and nearly put out of business by the State of Colorado for refusing to use his artistic abilities to produce a wedding cake for a homosexual couple.  The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in his favor and chastised the State of Colorado for its mocking of his Christian faith.

But was this a “landmark” decision that will have long term impact or a limited ruling that leaves more questions than answers?  We’ll discuss this with Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch. We will also talk about things that differentiate true Christians from the world – including how we handle life’s trials and troubles.

Bake That Cake, Jack! But What About the Rest of Us?

Women Won’t Have Sex With Me So I’ll Murder Innocent People!

We first check in with Tina Marie Griffin, Counter-Culture Mom to discuss ways to protect our children from poisonous movies, games, and social media, as well as the graphic sexualization of public school children. We also touch on Boy Scout & Girl Scout Alternatives: Trail Life USA, “a Christ-centered outdoor adventure, leadership, and character development ministry.” And a parallel organization for girls, American Heritage Girls, good to know given the ideologies (such as Planned Parenthood) driving the Girl Scouts these days.

The disturbing subject of segment 2 sounds like some twisted plot in some Hollywood movie, but there is actually a movement (on-line community) that seems to justify senseless killing of innocent people because they have been rejected in their sexual advances toward women.  It is known as “INCEL Movement” which stands for “involuntarily celibate,” and there have been at least 32 deaths linked to them so far.  This rotten fruit is a result of pornography and the sexual revolution.

We wrap up with some good news on the pro-life front: Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds just passed the strongest pro-life bill in the country. What can we expect from the opposition regarding protests and legal challenges?



TINA MARIE GRIFFIN

Nationally Renowned Speaker & Pop Culture Expert

Tina’s mission is about revealing how pop culture is eroding the foundational development of today’s youth and how we can rise above the assault.

For over two decades, former actress and pop culture expert, Tina Griffin has built a reputation as being a leading media expert. She’s traveled globally for the past 12 years to reveal how pop culture and media is glamorizing harmful behaviors without showing the consequences and how these messages are eroding the foundational development of today’s youth. Tina has been sharing her eye-opening pop culture message – Hollywood Exposed – at school assemblies, parent meetings, colleges, leadership conferences, music festivals, camps, cruise ships, church services and other venues. This is a very up-to-date, timely, interactive show, including quotes from celebrities as well as actual interview footage affirming that positive media, friends and choices lead to a successful life.

A Freedom That Leads To Slavery

Freedom is a precious gift that must be cherished and protected against those who would seek to enslave us.  While Christians around the world suffer from increased persecution, and we here in America see our freedoms being threatened, there is an even more precious freedom we must guard and protect:  The freedoms given to born-again Christians by the grace and Spirit of God.

Twice in his first letter to the Corinthian Church Paul warned about the importance of tempering freedoms with responsibility.  He said regarding what we consume that all things were lawful, but not necessarily beneficial and warned against the things we consume becoming our masters.   Today in America there is much that vies for our attention and affection.  How do we enjoy the freedoms of this life as disciples of Jesus without allowing ourselves to be led into bondage to them?

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch has written and taught extensively on how we find the correct biblical balance between enjoying good things God has given us while not elevating them to a place of ‘worship” in our lives.

Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,16 making the most of your time, because the days are evil. 17 So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit, 19 speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; 20 always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father; 21 and be subject to one another in the fear of Christ. Ephesians 5:15-21

Fighting for Those Caught in Sexual Lies of the Enemy

We start with a basic truth:  All humans are sinful and rebellious against God until the grace of God opens our eyes to our sin, leading us to confession, repentance and believing in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord of our lives.  If not for the grace of God, any one of us could be deceived into believing the lies we hear throughout our culture and even in the church. Many of us who have been enlightened and saved by faith will struggle with temptation and sin until the day we die.

Today we tackle the growing confusion regarding sex, gender, identity, and sin and what we can do to lead others to the truth of God and His Word.  For twenty years, Mike Levenhagen of Reclamation Resource Center has been dedicated to speaking the truth in love to those not only imprisoned to homosexual or gender-related lies, but also to those who struggle with heterosexual lust and adultery. Check out the podcast and hear Mike’s testimony.

Destroying a Generation Through Tolerance

As we become a post-Christian nation the natural effect is that absolute truth becomes a thing of the past, replaced by “individual morality”.  As we have systematically ushered God and His Word out of government and public education, we are seeing a generation of youth deceived and manipulated because they have been taught that God is a myth and it is up to them to make the world a better place.

Our youth have been led to believe they are being empowered to lead this world when in reality they are being conditioned for slavery to serve the elite of the new world order who consciously or not are serving the father of lies, Satan himself.

In our final segments we will look at how government and media are polluting the minds of our children through harmful legislation and television series such as “13 Reasons Why” which documents suicide among teens and has reportedly led to more suicides by youth who watch the series.

But first, where did we start to lose our children and what can we do to fight and reverse the influence of the radical left that has its fingers everywhere including education, government, media and increasingly even mental health care?  Dr. John Rosemond joins us to discuss the dilemma and what we can do about it as parents.
