Usama Dakdok is a Christian who was raised in a pastor's home in Egypt. He learned Islam as a required subject in Egyptian schools, and then to further his knowledge, he studied Islamic law in college.

Coming to the United States, Usama saw the large number of Muslims as a mission field, but also realized that most Christians need to know what Muslims believe in order to witness to them. In response he founded The Straight Way of Grace Ministry.

Former President George W. Bush said that Islam is a religion of peace. In fact, if you ask any Muslim in the West today to give you proof or evidence that Islam is a religion of peace and love, they won't quote the Qur’an or Muhammad's words in the Hadith, they will quote President Bush. According to Usama, that's the only evidence they have.

The problem, as Usama pointed out, is that Islam is built upon deception and Islam's Allah describes himself as the best deceiver according to the Qur'an. How is this being worked out? Allah says not to call for peace when you (Muslims) have the upper hand, a position Muslims don't hold yet in America. The result is that many Americans are currently being fooled into believing the description of Islam as a religion of peace and love.

What is the difference between the Qur’an and the Hadith?

Where in these writings does Islam teach terror and war as opposed to peace and love?

Is jihad the struggle to do good?

Why is there great resistance to a video being shown commemorating ground zero where 9-11 took place in New York?

Obtain the answers to these and other questions as you review this Crosstalk broadcast and you'll be better equipped to join Usama in his quest to see Muslims won to Christ.

This program is a portion of a message given by Dr. Jimmy DeYoung of prophecytoday.com at a VCY America Rally in March of 2014.

The Bible talks about places such as Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Gomer and Togarmah. Geographically and politically, what could these areas possibly have to do with our world today? What about the antichrist figure mentioned in Scripture? How about the leopard with wings? From Daniel chapter 7 to Ezekiel 38 to the book of Revelation, the Bible contains a considerable amount of prophetic information that relates to locations and activities in the world today.

Don't miss this fascinating tour through Bible prophecy as Dr. DeYoung ties the loose ends together to show just how close we may be to our Lord's return.

Guest: Dr. Duke Pesta

Dr. Duke Pesta is the Academic Director of Freedom Project Education. He is a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh. He received his PhD in Shakespeare and Renaissance literature from Purdue University. He has taught at major research institutions and small liberal arts colleges at both the graduate and undergraduate level. He has been active in education reform and was instrumental in developing and implementing an elective Bible course that is currently available for public high school students in Texas. He has been involved in the battle over Common Core and has given legislative testimony in opposition to Common Core. He is in demand as a foremost authority on the dangers of Common Core.

What is Common Core? Common Core is a set of never-tested federal standards for education written by two Washington lobbyist groups, the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers (C.C.S.S.O.). These two groups were funded by about 150 million dollars by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

How did Common Core get imposed on the states? According to Dr. Pesta, back in 2009, President Obama created the 'Race to the Top' program. Through this program, the government offered billions of dollars in taxpayer money called the 'Stimulus for Education' to states for their struggling education budgets. If a state accepted the money, they had to adopt Common Core education standards when they were finally written.

One particularly disturbing factor is the national sexuality standards that were developed by the National Department of Health. Rather than being introduced as a separate series of knowledge bases, it is being folded into subjects such as Math and English as a curriculum modification. It's designed to teach government sponsored views of sex and sexuality beginning as early as Kindergarten.

Parents need to be careful because according to Dr. Pesta, Common Core is not just a public school phenomenon. He noted that some Protestant and Catholic schools have already adopted Common Core standards. In fact, in Wisconsin, there is an attempt to solidify Common Core through legislation such as SB-286. If it passes, it will allow the state to take over any private or public school that takes any public money if the students don't perform well enough on the national Common Core tests.

Guest: J. Mark Holland

Mark Holland has 36 years of teaching in Christian schools including elementary and secondary education and 26 of those years at the college level. He has taught Bible, math and science. Bible study has been his heart’s desire. It is through his study that he wrote the book, 'Thrice Trumpeted Truths'.  In his study he found more than 100 unique triple proclamations in Scripture.

Mark began by noting that it was Elihu, one of Job’s friends who said, 'For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.' So Mark decided to have his adult Sunday school class look at some of the 'triples' from the Bible. What began as a 2 or 3 week curiosity turned into a 6 month adventure.

These are not hidden messages or new truths. Mark described the 'triples' he found as specific truths, stated in the same way, usually in the same words and in 3 different places. They could be in the same chapter, in the same book or in the totality of the Bible.

From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is full of 'triples'. So join Jim and Mark as they move through various portions of Scripture looking at some of them including:

--The 3 denials of Peter
--The 3 trials of Jesus
--The 3 proclamations of the crowd
--The 3 crosses
--3 days in the grave
--The “triple” of Christ’s victory over Satan, sin and death
--The “triple” of the world, the flesh and the Devil
…and more.

Guest: Mark Krikorian

Mark Krikorian is a nationally recognized expert on immigration issues. He is the Executive Director of the Center for Immigration Studies, an independent, non-partisan, non-profit research organization. Since their founding in 1985, they have been providing immigration policymakers, the academic community, news media and concerned citizens with reliable information about the social, economic, environmental, security and fiscal consequences of legal and illegal immigration into the United States. He is the author of How Obama is Transforming America Through Immigration.

The White House is once again escalating a push toward implementing comprehensive immigration reform. Why the urgency?

According to Mark, time is running out for the House to pass the Senate's immigration bill. This bill would double legal immigration to more than 2 million people per year and promises to do a better job of enforcing the law so that we don't have the same immigration problem in the future. As Jim noted, this is merely at attempt to, '...grant the amnesty now and later we're going to figure out how to shut off the faucet.' Even though Mark feels they are sympathetic to the cause of amnesty, the House Republican leadership have said they won't deal with the 1,000 page Omnibus bill.

Mark agrees that the effects of the bill would grow the economy but not from amnesty. Instead it would grow due to a doubling of future immigration. The question is: Who are we letting in? Are these going to be people who will economically contribute more than they use in taxpayer funded services? After all, most immigrants are lower skilled, working individuals who make heavy use of government services. As an example he cited their own research showing that of families headed by a Mexican immigrant, 57% of those families use at least one federal welfare program. So Mark feels it doesn't make sense to increase the future immigration numbers if the populace is going to have to subsidize their presence.

The number of illegal immigrants is said to be around 11 to 13 million. That number is staggering because it's in the range of the population of these states combined: Idaho, Maine, New Hampshire, Hawaii, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont and Wyoming.

If House Republicans go along with the Senate on amnesty, will the new legislation fix the problem that created the illegal population in the first place? It's one of many interesting questions to ponder when you review this edition of Crosstalk.
