As Vic mentions early on, music can motivate, it can be a blessing, but it can be abrasive as well as a curse. It’s this very challenging topic of music and worship in the church that was covered on this edition of Crosstalk.

Vic’s guest was Dr. Don Kurtz. Dr. Kurtz has bachelor degrees in both Music Education & Bible, a Masters in Sacred Music, and a Doctor of Ministry. He is an adjunct professor at Maranatha Baptist Bible College and is on the Pastoral Staff at Calvary Baptist Church in Watertown, WI. He has been communicating what the Word of God says about music and worship for close to 30 years. He is author of the book, Worship and Music in the Word: A Genesis to Revelation Study.

If you’ve ever tried to defend a biblical basis for music, you may have been led to feel as though it’s intolerant to challenge the near constant change that seems to take place in the music field. As Dr. Kurtz pointed out, there’s nothing wrong with change itself, but instead what is the parameter for change? He noted that we need to discipline change by the Word of God. Since God is a moral God, any change in music such as the notes, rhythm, etc. must also represent the character of God. In other words, we can’t short circuit the process and look only for a moral beat or rhythm; we need to make sure all parts of the music properly represent the God of the Bible.

Dr. Kurtz’s book, Worship and Music in the Word: A Genesis to Revelation Study, looks at areas such as the creation of music, the patriarchs and their music, Mosaic worship, a study on Psalms, the disintegration of music, Christ’s teaching on music and more.

Remember that God does not accept all forms of worship allegedly geared toward Him. He’s looking for those who worship Him in spirit and in truth. This fact alone makes this Crosstalk a critical one worth reviewing as well as sharing with friends and loved ones.

This program first aired August 16, 2012.

Guest: Ken Ham

Listen: MP3|Order

Ken Ham is president, CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis and the highly acclaimed Creation Museum. Ken is a biblical apologist who gives presentations all over the world on the reliability of the Bible and how compromise over biblical authority has undermined society and even the church. Ken is the author of numerous books including, “The Lie: Evolution,” “Already Gone,” “Already Compromised,” “Six Days: The Age of the Earth and the Decline of the Church” and is general editor of the New Answers Series Volumes I-IV.

This Crosstalk takes a look at the books that make up the New Answers Series Volumes I-IV. The story behind these books goes back to the 1980's when Ken would go on tour to the U.S. to speak on creation. He found that no matter where he traveled, people asked basically the same questions. In other words these books (that are the four largest selling creation apologetics books in the world) provide answers to the top 130 questions Answers in Genesis is continually asked.

While Ken is the general editor, he lists the names of numerous experts in creation science, engineering and more that lend tremendous credibility to this project.

These are wonderful for pastors to develop sermons and Bible studies, youth pastors can teach young people specifics regarding creation, parents can use them for family devotions and they are great to give to skeptics or as Christmas gifts.

You'll hear Ken's thoughts on global warming, homosexual marriage, the gap theory, the shape of Noah's Ark and much more when you review this edition of Crosstalk.

Host: Gordon Morris

Guest: Sharam Hadian

Listen:MP3

NOTE: This Crosstalk program is not available on CD.

Instead, order the complete Rally message below.

Shahram Hadian was born in Iran to a Muslim family. When he was 7 years old, his family came to America to escape an oppressive Islamic regime. He eventually experienced a transformational life change when he committed his life to Jesus Christ. This not only changed his destiny for eternity, it also changed his situation with his family and Islamic culture as he immediately began to face persecution and disapproval from his family and from the Islamic community. He is now considered to be an apostate and according to the dictates of the Qur’an, deserves to be killed with no repercussions to those who might do so.

In part 2 of this Crosstalk series, Shahram continues to explain in more detail the second point foundational to 'Chrislam.' This is the idea that Christianity and Islam share a common love for God because they have the same God.

The Bible provides numerous names for God. It teaches that God does not lie, so if Christianity and Islam have the same 'god' why does the Bible not proclaim, even once, that we are to describe him as 'Allah'?

There are 3 characteristics of God from the Bible. (1) God is a jealous God. (2) We worship him alone. (3) He's a God of love and justice. Contrast that with the following and you'll see why the creation of 'Chrislam' isn't biblical. They include:

--Islamic history can be traced back to Baal worship. This means 'Chrislam' supporters are bringing recognition of a form of Baal worship (worship of a pagan moon god) into their churches and missionary efforts.

--Only 15% of Muslims are Arab yet in Islam you must pray in Arabic. Does Allah only understand Arabic?

--Islam teaches a concept of acceptable lying known as 'taqiyya.'

--Muslims will point out that Jesus is in the Qur’an (Isa) but their 'Jesus' is only a messenger therefore they have Jesus denying his own deity.

--Islam denies love and friendship to the unbeliever in the later, abrogated verses of the Qur'an.

--Islam denies the crucifixion of Christ.

--Islam denies that Jesus is the Son of God, fully God and fully man, the only path of salvation and that he will return as King of King and Lord of Lords.

History and the Qur’an itself both prove why President Obama is wrong when he claims that ISIS and what they do is not Islamic. According to the text of Islam, Mohammed was supervising beheadings. So if Mohammed was doing this and 86% of all Islamic texts are about him and more than 93 times in the Qur’an Muslims are commanded to imitate Mohammed, how can ISIS not be Islamic?

Shahram believes we have Islamic apologists and propagandists in the White House who are lying to the American people. Their goal is to get us into a slumber and such actions are treasonous to this nation and must be dealt with.

He eventually experienced a transformational life change when he committed his life to Jesus Christ. This not only changed his destiny for eternity, it also changed his situation with his family and Islamic culture as he immediately began to face persecution and disapproval from his family and from the Islamic community. He is now considered to be an apostate and according to the dictates of the Qur’an, deserves to be killed with no repercussions to those who might do so.

Shahram is now dedicated to reaching out and speaking out to let people know about the deception of Islam, its true goal that many are not aware of and the threat of Shariah which is the heart of Islam. He spoke about these things at the VCY America rally that took place in September.

In the first of this two-part series dealing with Islam and how it's affecting Christianity, Shahram began by noting there is no political correctness in the Bible, so as churches preach truth and love, they need to define terms such as tolerance and love. This involves discussing the truth about whether or not Christians and Muslims worship the same God. This brings up a number of questions that Shahram's presentation tackles:

--Is the God of the Bible the same as the Allah of Islam?

--Can you be both a Christian and a Muslim at the same time?

--Should Christians be reaching out to Muslims seeking spiritual reconciliation?

--Should Christians and Muslims be holding joint services?

--Are the Bible and the Qur’an equal?

--Should we merge both religions into one called “Chrislam”?

According to Shahram, Islam denies that Jesus is God, that he's the Son of God and that he's come in the flesh. This is the message of an antichrist spirit. Spreading this message is not only what Islam does, it's what Islam was born to do and if anyone says anything different, they are either ignorant of the ideology of Islam or they're lying.

Shahram also refutes the following points that are foundational to “Chrislam.”

--There's a common word among Christians and Muslims.

--Muslims have a common love of God and neighbor with Christians.

Guest: Peter LaBarbera

Listen: MP3 | Order

Peter LaBarbera is the President of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.

In April of this year, Peter was invited to speak at a pro-life association group in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. After being invited, some leftists decided to make an issue of Peter's appearance claiming that Peter is a hate-monger. They tried to get him removed from the speakers list and then lobbied the border agency to turn him back.

When Peter arrived at customs, he was questioned. Authorities looked through his phone and computer and were allowed to do this because Canada has a law that bans so-called hate propaganda. So the charge was alleged incitement of hate based upon sexual orientation so it was decided that Peter would not be allowed to enter Canada.

Eventually Peter did get into Canada because of pressure by some conservative Christian politicians. However, some time later, Peter protested peacefully at a college with another activist and they ended up being arrested because they refused to leave. After one day in jail Peter was given the option of leaving the country which he chose to do.

On October 30th, Peter is going back to Canada for trial to clear his name and to help stop Canada from being subjected to the censorship of the liberal thought police.

Vic also had Peter comment on the following:

--Houston's mayor backs away from subpoena request of church sermons on homosexuality; now only wants the speeches.

--Ordained ministers in Idaho who operate the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel have been ordered to marry a same-sex couple. The ministers now face jail time and a $1,000 fine for each day that they decline to celebrate the wedding.

--A Christian T-Shirt business in Kentucky is facing mandatory diversity training for turning down a request to print T-shirts that advertise a gay pride parade.

--President Obama's evolution on the gay-marriage issue.

--Why has the G.O.P. become so quiet on the issue of homosexuality?

--In Hartford, Connecticut, a 16 year old boy who's identifying as a girl has filed a lawsuit because he's in a male detention center. Staff members are referring to him by use of his male birth name and male pronouns rather than female pronouns. The center is also having him wear boys uniforms and banning him from wearing a wig and makeup.

--This past Monday in Washington, D.C., a conference was held with transgender military personnel from 18 nations that gathered to discuss whether the U.S. military should join them.

--The Obama administration is suing two businesses; a funeral home and an eye clinic for firing employees who were transitioning from male to female.

--Why is corporate America slouching toward Sodom?
