Paul Taylor is the soon to be director of the Mount St. Helens Creation Information Center. He has been speaking and writing on the subject of creation for more than 30 years and was the senior speaker and manager of Answers in Genesis in the U.K. He was born in England and received a master's degree in science education and a degree in chemistry. He was a science teacher in England and then in South Wales. He is the author of several books including, 'Don't Miss the Boat: Facts to Keep Your Faith Afloat,' 'No Time for Itching Ears,' 'The Six Days of Genesis' and several other titles.

Sometimes people aren't aware of certain kinds of information or they don't want to be aware of that information. Paul explained that in the latter case the refusal stems from presuppositions that people bring to any subject, including the subject of origins. In other words, the secular humanist has presuppositions as well. That makes it difficult for them to interpret evidence in any way other than through the 'lens' they've already developed. It takes a tremendous change in their worldview in order for them to see things differently.

Some people refuse to accept what's clearly in front of them in spite of the fact that the biblical presupposition, unlike the evolutionary presupposition, is the one that is self-evidently true. You can't explain scientific laws or laws of morality or logic apart from God. It's absurd to think that these things started by random chance. Unfortunately there's a spiritual blindness that causes people to refuse to accept the truth. It's a blindness that the apostle Paul talks about in Romans chapter 1.

As this Crosstalk moved along, Jim and the listeners had Paul comment on the following:

--More and more Christian colleges, churches and entertainers don't take Genesis
1-11 literally. Does it matter?

--Is the 'Big Bang' theory a biblically or scientifically viable option?

--What books are available to help children know the truth about creation science?

--The basics of radiometric dating.

...and much more.

Many women today are avoiding marriage and according to Phyllis Schlafly, those that want to go ahead with marriage, want to marry someone with a job. The problem is, those men are becoming harder to find because free trade has taken away many middle class jobs.

This is just one of many factors affecting the American family as discussed on this edition of Crosstalk. Phyllis has the expertise to comment on these factors because of her background as founder and president of Eagle Forum. She's been a national leader of the conservative movement since the publication of her bestselling 1964 book, “A Choice Not An Echo.” She's the author of some 20 books and publishes a monthly newsletter, “The Phyllis Schlafly Report” and has a syndicated column which appears in 100 newspapers. She has been called the “iron lady” of the conservative movement. She conducts daily radio commentaries and despite turning 90 years old this past August has just released a new book, “Who Killed the American Family?”

As the program moved along, Phyllis provided commentary on numerous other factors she believes are having the greatest impact on the family. These include: No-fault/unilateral divorce, U.N. treaties from bureaucrats that don't understand our way of life, expensive college loans and the family courts. Other factors from her book include the effects of welfare reform, globalism vs. homemakers, psychological disorders, advice from newspapers, over-medicating children, the influence of television and more.

This Crosstalk began with Vic interviewing VCY America's Jim Schneider who many listeners know suffered life-threatening health complications after knee surgery. By God's grace and the prayers of many, Jim continues to recover. He gave glory to God and is ready to continue doing that which God planned in advance for him to do (Ephesians 2:10).

Vic Eliason then framed a discussion concerning the continuing tidal wave of sodomy in America by noting the following stories:

--Supreme Court Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg allegedly 'leaks' the result of the
court's decision on same-sex marriage.
--Man adopts his same-sex partner to help with estate planning issue.
--Girl Scouts allowing boys who identify as girls to enroll as members.
--Boy Scouts moving closer to open and avowed homosexuality.
--Canadian Christian Jeweler sells rings to homosexual couple but still comes
under scrutiny.
--Vice President Joe Biden releases a statement blasting religious condemnation
of homosexuality.
--In a speech, Hillary Clinton calls for a change in deep seeded cultural codes,
structural biases and religious beliefs.
--Wheaton College defends its decision to form homosexual groups on campus.

Jim began this edition of Crosstalk by noting the various ways that America has been turning away from the Lord. For example:

--Any mention of God in the public arena is quickly challenged.
--We've had lawsuits brought against the phrase, 'under God' in the Pledge of
Allegiance and 'In God We Trust', against the National Day of Prayer and against
prayer at Presidential inaugurations.
--Schools have denied prayer at graduation ceremonies, before sporting events and
have even banned Christmas carols at Christmas time.
--Marriage is under attack as judges and courts seek to redefine that which God
has established.
--Innocent babies are aborted daily in the name of 'choice'.
--Crime and violence are a daily commentary in society.
--The family continues to disintegrate.
--Churches are turning from sound biblical doctrine to a greater focus on
entertainment.

In response, Jim presented a recorded sermon message by Pastor Chris Juvinall, pastor of the Wausau Bible Church in Wausau, Wisconsin. His message is titled, 'Another Generation', and takes us back to the time of Joshua. Some years after his death, Scripture records in Judges 2:10(b) that, '...there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel.' This message is a challenge for parents and grandparents to raise their children and grandchildren so they truly know both God and His works in this evil day.

Guest: Dr. Ron Rhodes

Listen: MP3 | Order

Dr. Ron Rhodes is president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries. He is a keynote speaker at conferences across the nation. He has authored more than 60 books of which many deal in the realm of apologetics. He joined Jim Schneider to discuss his book, 'What Happens After Life?: 21 Amazing Revelations About Heaven and Hell.'

While it certainly appears from our perspective that medical science is extending the length of life for humans, according to Ron, we are not entitled to a certain length of life. God has predetermined the amount of time we spend on earth. Eventually we come to what Ron described as an appointed time when our life is to end (See Psalm 139:16 and Job 14:5) and that word 'determined' in Hebrew carries the idea of something that is set in stone by God.

Ron encouraged listeners to have a biblical attitude about death by recognizing heaven's perspective. This involves looking at death as a tiny dot in the realm of time. Our time in heaven can be looked at like a line but our life on earth is like a dot; it's relatively short compared to all of eternity. So Ron is trying to help people learn how to live now in view of then. In other words, don't live for the dot, let's live for the line.

Ron talks about believers and heaven, unbelievers and hell; what happens after death to infants, the mentally challenged and those with memory disorders; whether believers will get a resurrected body; why the doctrine of purgatory brings a very weak view to the doctrine of salvation believers have in Christ; the rapture of
the church; the proper context of Hebrews 6:4-6 and much more.

In recent years we've been hearing about the militarization of police departments across our nation as news reports have informed us about equipment being made available to them that in the past was only used by branches of the military. Is such militarization anticipating that things are going to get worse in America? At one time, President Obama felt that such militarization was a good idea. More recently there's been news that House Judiciary Committee meetings on police militarization have begun as lawmakers debate the best way to regulate law enforcement.

The Department of Justice has announced that it will send millions of dollars to various community activist groups to combat urban crime and reduce tensions between racial minorities and police. Could this backfire and actually create more unrest by funding many of the so-called community organizers responsible for fomenting anti-police sentiment in cities across America?

Another headline indicated that sheriff deputies and special operations troops are reportedly teaming up for special exercises in South Carolina. Is this a Posse Comitatus Act violation?

There are those calling for a change in the religious views of some individuals. One of them is presidential candidate Hillary Clinton who is seeking an overhaul of religious beliefs, structural biases and cultural codes in order to advance her beliefs regarding birth control, abortion and women's health care.

As we see a federal government communicating as though it desires to have power over our local police departments...as we see an aspiring leader wanting to change the religious views of many...what do you think? Crosstalk callers presented their perspectives on this critical issue of what constitutes government
