Rich Christiano is a film writer, director and producer.  In 2002 he, along with his brother Dave, formed Five & Two Pictures.  Rich has been involved with Multiple films.  He is the writer, director and producer of such films as 'The Appointment,' 'Time Changer,' 'Unidentified' and 'The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry.'  Rich has been involved with a film called, 'Amazing Love: The Story of Hosea' and his newest release, 'A Matter of Faith.'

These days it's not uncommon to hear about young people who go off to college and eventually abandon their faith.  It can start in subtle fashion but before long they're no longer attending church, reading the Bible, they may show signs of rejecting God as creator and even questioning the authority of God's Word.

So what can parents do?  Rich decided to be part of the solution by producing a powerful, dramatic film that will open your eyes to not only the college pressures and what's philosophically going on in those institutions, but also the drift that can take place in the life of those students who call themselves, 'Christians.'

What motivated Rich to make such a movie?  He came to the realization that evolution is taught in colleges and universities as a matter of fact.  That bothered Rich because he realizes that no one can prove evolution.  He also realizes that no one can prove creation either so this really comes down to a matter of faith, hence, the title of the movie.

'A Matter of Faith' is about a daughter of loving, Christian parents who takes a biology class at the local university.  Her professor teaches evolution but he's funny, clever and interesting and before long the girl starts drifting.

After about five weeks when she comes home to visit her parents, her father senses something's wrong.  Her father goes online and uncovers information that tells him the professor is an evolutionist so his desire is to find out why he doesn't also teach biblical creation as an alternative.  

The campus happens to have monthly debates and it's the turn of the biology department to host the next debate.  When the girl's father comes to talk to the professor, the professor cleverly corners him and challenges him to a friendly debate on the subject.  The father accepts but this creates conflict with his daughter in part because she feels this situation is going to cause her embarrassment on campus.

Should he back out to appease his daughter?  Should he stand up for the truth by keeping his promise to debate the professor?    

This Crosstalk includes audio excerpts from a classroom challenge by the professor, a debate among key characters, the movie trailer and much more as Rich and Jim discuss this new movie project.

Guest:  David Rives

David Rives is president and founder of David Rives Ministries.  He is involved with historical, archaeological and scientific research and is committed to spreading the truth of the ultimate creator.  He's written books, has produced videos, formed the Genesis Science Network and writes a regular column for  

David's passion from the beginning has been astronomy.  He eventually began doing photography where he was viewing the magnificent formations in outer space and he wanted to share what he saw with others.  After working up a presentation, speaking in some local churches and forming a non-profit ministry, he produced an amateur documentary called, 'The Heavens Declare the Glory of God.'  It took off quickly and was eventually translated into Russian, German Ukrainian and even began appearing on Christian television.      

He noticed there weren't many people addressing the issue of biblical astronomy. He looked at some of the problems related to an explosion that created everything, most notably, where did the matter come from that was part of the 'big bang' in the first place?  He concluded that if the big-bang can't answer the question concerning the origin of matter, it has a major problem.

He began to do some research that quickly turned into his book, 'Wonders Without Number' and then he produced a 30 minute documentary called, 'In the Beginning: Creation According to Genesis.'  It was a semi-finalist at the largest Christian film festival in the world and before long he was doing a weekly video column on World Net Daily.

All of this made him realize that people have a hunger to learn the scientific evidence of what we read in the Bible.  David realizes the Bible is not a science text.  However, wherever it does speak on science, the Bible is 100% accurate.  In fact, he came to discover that it predated scientific discovery in some instances by thousands of years.       

Some of the questions answered by David included:

--Did the Bible communicate germ theory long before man discovered it?
--Do the stars 'speak'?  
--Does the Bible actually speak against a flat earth?
--Are sound science and the Bible compatible?
--Is there water on Mars?

This broadcast began with Jim Schneider sharing and commenting on troubling comments from President Obama as he gave his speech at the Democratic National Committee's LGBT gala held at Gotham Hall in New York City this past Sunday. Below are some of the President's thoughts:

'7 Years ago we came together not just to elect a President but to reaffirm our faith in that most American of ideals, the notion that people no matter where they come from, what they look like, what their last name is or who they love, can change this country. And from the beginning that faith was tested by a great recession, by political obstruction, by established barriers and everyday indignities all of which reminded us that our march toward equality was unfinished.'

He went on to say, 'Tonight we live in an America where 'don't ask, don't tell' is something that don't exist. We live in America where a growing number of older generations recognize that love is love and younger generations don't even know what all the fuss was about. And tonight, thanks to the unbending sense of justice passed down through generations of citizens who never gave up hope that we could bring this country closer to our founding ideals that all of us are created equal, we now live in America where our marriages are equal as well.'

Several paragraphs later he indicated that while we cherish religious freedom, this freedom grants no one the right to deny our fellow Americans their constitutional rights.

Other LGBT related items included:

--The 2015 Corporate Equality Index compiled by the pro-homosexual Human Rights Campaign has a record 366 major businesses earning a perfect score of 100% indicating that the HRC completely approves of their policies, practices and benefits for their LGBT employees. This is up from just 13 businesses with a perfect score in 2002.

--Frito Lay released its 'rainbow' colored Doritos with proceeds going to support the 'It Gets Better' campaign.

--The largest Presbyterian denomination in the United States has for the first time appointed an openly gay person to serve as interim executive director for one of its agencies.

--Regarding homosexual marriage, Pastor and author Rob Bell told Oprah Winfrey that '...the church will continue to be even more irrelevant when it quotes letters from 2,000 years ago as their best defense when you have in front of you flesh and blood people who are your brothers and sisters and aunts and uncles and co-workers and neighbors and they love each other and they just want to go through life with someone.'

--The United States has the greatest number of listings for calendar events for the LGBT community compared to any other nation. Jim went through an extensive list of these events and what they are specifically attempting to celebrate.

Ben Everson is an evangelist with Bible Revival Ministries. Ben is also an accomplished songwriter, vocalist and author of the book, 'The Revival Nobody Wants.'

Ben began by describing what revival is and what it isn't. Revival is not raw emotionalism. It's also not a political movement. Biblical revival has to do with God working in the heart of the believer in such a way that they are brought into a close relationship with Him. That relationship is so close that it causes sin to be abhorrent to that individual.

Revival has first and foremost to do with God's people. Ben noted that you can't revive (make alive again) that which has never been 'vived' in the first place.

Is getting a large number of people into churches an indication of revival? Ben indicated that this is not necessarily true. He described 3 levels to revival. They include:

Personal revival--We're as close to God as we want to be.

Corporate revival--This involves people getting right with God. Testimonies are shared with the church, the church becomes convicted and before long, the church is experiencing corporate revival.

Awakening—This is when the church is lit on fire, the community takes notice and
people are brought to Christ.

Ben warned listeners not to confuse political action for the truth or with a walk with God. In other words, it's possible to stand for all the right things externally but be far from God internally.

How does the fire of revival get started in our own lives? How should we interpret 2 Chronicles 7:14? How does Ben describe the average state of the church in America? How can parents be effectively involved so that younger generations will know the Lord? Is there a correlation between music and revival?

These and other questions are answered by Ben as he explained why revival starts in your house and not the White House.

Guest: Mark Crutcher

Listen: MP3 ​| Order ​

Last evening, members of the Congressional Black Caucus (specifically Congresswomen Gwen Moore of Wisconsin, Donna Edwards of Maryland and Alma Adams of North Carolina), came alongside some patients of Planned Parenthood and held a press conference to underscore what they termed Planned Parenthood's vital work in African American communities.

Mark Crutcher has done some very thorough research and investigation on this very issue of Planned Parenthood and their relationship to the Black community. He is the founder and director of Life Dynamics which is widely acknowledged as one of the most innovative and professional pro-life organizations in America.

Mark may be best known for his bold undercover operations that have exposed shocking and even illegal activities inside the abortion industry. It was a Life Dynamics sting that caught Planned parenthood and others in the abortion industry operating a nationwide pedophile protection ring, and another one that documented how abortion clinics make extra profit by selling the body parts of the babies they kill. He has also produced Maafa 21 that exposes the Black genocide that's underway in the 21st century. The success of Mark's covert surveillance efforts led one New York newspaper to label Life Dynamics 'the CIA of the pro-life movement.'

Mark began by presenting a brief history of Margaret Sanger and eugenics which began around the time slavery was being eradicated in America. At the time, those who had previously owned slaves were concerned that with the outlawing of slavery, releasing these individuals into society would collapse the economy.

When the idea of colonization (sending slaves back to Africa) was deemed unworkable, some people looked to Charles Darwin's cousin, Francis Galton, who had developed the philosophy of eugenics. This is based on the theory that life begins at the lowest form of primates and moves up to the highest level of human which they considered to be the Aryan or the Mediterranean Caucasians. To Galton, the highest form of primate was the gorilla and the lowest human form was the Aborigine or the African and that the gap between these two forms of life was almost indistinguishable. So the theory behind eugenics is that the greater you make the gap between these two groups,the stronger you make the human race. Galton believed that the way to do this is to do away with those at the bottom end of the primate/human scale.

The ultra-wealthy continued to fund the eugenics movement and eventually they began to rely on birth control and sterilization. One of the individuals they recruited to help this process along was Margaret Sanger who, along with being a member of the American Eugenics Society, ran the American Birth Control League.

As sterilization moved along, America eventually developed sterilization boards (eugenics boards) in 33 states (back when there were 48 states). They were sterilizing people by the hundreds of thousands, the vast majority of which were Black. This continued until the early 1960's.

Eventually the eugenics movement began losing the weapon of sterilization as courts began deeming forced sterilization as unconstitutional. At that point they turned their attention to abortion.

Ironically, the pro-life groups at the time were the radical civil rights groups such as the Black Panthers. In those days, Jesse Jackson called for a total ban on abortion and a constitutional amendment that would prohibit it. Then there was Elijah Muhammad who wrote a book called, 'A Message to the Black Man in America' where in 2 chapters he describes how White elitists were going to use abortion and birth control to wipe out the Black community.

Interestingly, when Jesse Jackson decided to run for president as a Democrat, his views changed. He went from saying that abortion is Black genocide created by rich White elitists trying to rid America of African American people, to saying a woman's right to choose is the civil rights issue of our time.

Right now a Black baby in America is 5 times as likely to be aborted as a White baby is. In addition, Black women make up less than 13% of the female population yet they have almost 40% of all abortions.

Mark's organization looked at the locations where all the population control centers have been placed in America by zip code. When breaking those zip codes down using census bureau figures to show the racial population of those areas, they found that these population control centers have been disproportionately placed in Black Communities and are now being placed in Hispanic communities.

In the end, Mark believes it's literally impossible for someone to argue 2 things. First, that the legalization of abortion wasn't driven by racial genocide and secondly, that it doesn't continue to this day.

So for the Congressional Black Caucus to celebrate the efforts of Planned Parenthood within the Black community comes down to political expediency. It's no different than for them to celebrate the Ku Klux Klan or the American Nazi Party. In fact, Mark noted that the American abortion industry wipes out more Black people in 4 days than the Ku Klux Klan killed in 150 years.
