Israel Wayne is the co-founder of Family Renewal Ministries. He is an author, columnist and conference speaker. He is the father of nine and is passionate about defending the Christian faith and developing a biblical worldview. Some of his books include, 'Homeschooling from a Biblical Worldview', 'Full-Time Parenting: A Guide to Family Based Discipleship', 'Questions God Asks', 'Questions Jesus Asks' and his latest book, ''Pitchin' a Fit': Overcoming Angry and Stressed-Out Parenting'.


Jim opened the discussion by asking if there's a difference between stress in parenting and being stressed-out. Israel responded by indicating that there is a difference. Stress is external by the fact that there are pressures of life that come at us from all sides. These can be financial or health pressures and more. The problem comes when we begin to internalize those pressures and allow them to affect your attitude and behavior.


Is stress wrong? Israel noted that it affects our relationships. In that sense it can be very harmful. It's a physiological thing that we experience that doesn't necessarily have a moral implication at the outset but we tend to act out based upon our emotions and feelings. So when we express that stress to others it can be very damaging.


The problem isn't so much stress itself but how we deal with it. We're always going to have some kind of drama or crisis in our lives, especially if you interact with people. We all have in common the fact that everyone is a sinner and that means there will be times when people will bend us the wrong way. These things, as James noted, come along to test us; that it's the trying of our faith that produces patience and endurance. It's to make us mature so we don't want to run away from those things but rather learn how to handle them appropriately.


Stress is often a trigger point for anger. When stress appears we realize the implications. The result is an adrenaline rush similar to when we might be on a walk and we see a Doberman coming at us dragging a six foot leash with no one hanging on to it. Israel believes we really don't have any control over those adrenaline rushes. It's our fight-or-flight mechanism that takes over. That can move us into the realm of emotion. We then start making decisions, making accusations and using words and actions in hurtful ways. So it's important for us to recognize these anger triggers when we feel ourselves escalating. That way we'll make right choices rather than harmful ones that we'll regret later.


Anger is part of a spectrum and begins with annoyance and frustration and ends in wrath and rage. Even the milder forms of anger, if allowed to continue habitually as a lifestyle pattern, can create and produce harm in relationships over time.


As the program moves along Jim and Israel discuss other aspects of the stress/anger relationship as it pertains to parenting. They look at the stress/fear connection, self control, where anger comes from, whether all anger is unbiblical or not, the importance of prayer and more.

Tomorrow, April 22, is Earth Day. On that day, the U.S. and other nations are set to sign the Paris Climate Agreement in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations. The agreement is open to signatures until April 21, 2017.


Joining Jim to discuss this and other related issues was Dr. E. Calvin Beisner. Dr. Beisner is the founder and national spokesman for The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. He has taught theology, apologetics, ethics, church history, economics and other disciplines. He has written four books on population, resources, economics, and the environment; eight other books, contributions to over 30 books and hundreds of articles. He has testified as an expert witness on the ethics and economics of climate policy before congressional committees and lectured for churches, schools, colleges, seminaries and conferences around North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.


The Paris Agreement (Treaty) is a collection of nationally determined contributions that have been made by about 180 nations. These are their commitments (with no legal enforcement mechanism) to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions or slow their increase over the next several decades in order to slow or stop global warming. That, however, assumes that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the primary cause of recent global warming. That notion, however, is not well supported by the empirical evidence.


Secretary of State John Kerry's signature to the agreement is merely symbolic. It's unofficial because only the president can commit America to a treaty and only after Senate ratification. However, that doesn't mean that our government won't do all it can to get our nation to comply.


The agreement needs at least 55 parties for ratification. Dr. Beisner believes the U.N. will easily get that number because most of the nations that will be signing the agreement are developing countries that are not already heavily industrialized. This means they need to make very little commitment in terms of either cutting down or slowing the growth of carbon dioxide emissions.


According to Dr. Beisner, if we did meet our commitment to the agreement, the result in terms of change in global average temperature would be less than three-hundredths of a degree Celsius at the end of this century. In addition, we could eliminate all U.S. carbon dioxide emissions and all carbon dioxide emissions from all other industrialized nations (in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development) and the total impact on global average temperature by the end of this century would only be about .17 of a degree Celsius.


That's important because in this accord among these nations, the goal is to keep the average temperature of the earth from rising 2 degrees Celsius over the next two decades.


Dr. Beisner noted that we've seen an increase of about a .8-.9 of a degree Celsius increase in global average temperature since about 1880. The U.N. is basically saying that we need to keep an additional 1.1-1.2 degrees Celsius increase from happening. We've never seen that rapid an increase in global average temperature and he feels we won't because the U.N. is going on computer models that on average, predict 2 to 3 times as much warming as is actually observed.


Jim also has Dr. Beisner comment on an interfaith climate change statement signed by about 270 religious leaders, the Bible's view regarding the environment, how such agreements would trap people into poverty, the possibility of civil action to be taken against so-called 'climate change deniers' and more.

Listen:   MP3 ​​| Order


Islam is continuing to advance, not just through Europe but through the U.S. as well. 48 hours ago, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations held their 2nd annual Muslim advocacy day in Washington, D.C. Part of their goal was to meet with legislators and express their interests which includes the passing of a resolution that would condemn so-called Islamophobia.


This and related issues were addressed by Shahram Hadian. Shahram was born in Iran into a Muslim family. His father was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army, his mother an elementary school teacher. His parents had a sense of urgency to leave Iran in 1978 and moved to the United States. While in the states, Shahram committed his life to Jesus Christ. This brought immediate disapproval from his family and his culture. Shahram, now a former Muslim, has begun the TIL Project. The Truth in Love Project exposes the true goal of Islam and the threat of Shariah in America. He also exposes the lie of Chrislam, the false claim that Christianity and Islam have a common god and a common word. He ran for office of Governor in Washington State in 2012. He has served as a police officer and a pastor.


According to Shahram, the U.S. Council of Muslim Organizations is yet another front group for the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, the USCMO is the Muslims Brotherhood's political wing. This proves what some have been saying; that Islam is not just a religious system, it's also a political ideology that is meant to establish its law (Shariah).


The USCMO promotes what they call a '...legislative agenda in support of equality and social justice.' Shahram noted that there can't be equality between the tenets of the U.S. Constitution and those of Islam/Shariah. Islamic law violates all five sections of the First Amendment. There is no freedom of religion, speech, grievances, freedom of the press or the freedom to assemble in Islam. None of those apply within Islam once it obtains the upper hand.


Just on the issue of free speech alone we can see the paradigm shift that's taking place as Islam seeks to gain the upper hand. President Obama said back in February that his administration wants to go after anti-Muslim rhetoric. After the attacks in San Bernardino, California, Loretta Lynch, the head of the Justice Department, made a similar plea.


What's come out of this is that now the USCMO agenda includes a resolution to condemn violence, bigotry and hateful rhetoric toward Muslims in the United States. This has resulted in House Resolution 569 which was introduced on December 17th, 2015. It denounces what it calls, 'hate speech' and calls for the House to reaffirm the right of Muslims to practice their freedom of faith. Anti-defamation laws have been passed in Europe to protect Muslims but What people need to understand is that in America, any kind of rhetoric is protected speech under the First Amendment.


This is an example showing how Islam is attempting to force compliance upon dissenters just like the LGBT community is doing with their agenda. So if Islam establishes its agenda by criminalizing rhetoric, at that point free speech disappears. Christians will not only be sued and fined on a civil level but charged criminally as well. This means that under this resolution, this Crosstalk broadcast would be deemed a criminal act in spite of the fact that it would be delivering factual information about Islam.


There's much more to be learned from Jim and Shahram when you review this important Crosstalk broadcast.

The Jewish Passover begins at sundown April 22nd and ends on April 30th. So what is the Passover? What is its significance?


Joining Jim to answer these questions was Chris Katulka. Chris is the host of the radio program, 'The Friends of Israel Today'. He also serves as a speaker, writer and blogger for The Friends of Israel and writes for 'Israel My Glory' magazine. He also leads annual tours to Israel.


The program began by discussing anti-semitism. For decades it seemed to be isolated to the Middle East. It spread to Europe and has become such a force that Jews are fleeing France in droves for Israel. London is no longer a safe place for Jews and Chris also reported that we are now seeing a rise in anti-semitism in American universities.


This phenomenon has even penetrated the Christian community. Chris noted that the Presbyterian Church USA is very pro-active in pushing a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement within their denomination and this is showing up in Methodist circles as well.


The ironic part of the BDS movement is that some Palestinians are asking that people don't boycott Israeli companies. Why? It's because those companies are where some Palestinians generate their income. So if you boycott an Israeli company that's located in the West Bank or in Judea/Samaria, you're not helping the Palestinians, you're actually hurting some of them.


Why is the Passover coming 4 full weeks after the time we celebrated Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday? According to Chris, Jewish holidays follow the Hebrew Calendar which is a lunar calendar so it differs from our Gregorian calendar. It's a Jewish leap year so instead of adding an additional day to the end of February, the Jews add a whole month to the year.


Chris believes the significance of the Passover is similar to what we hold dear as Christians. It's one evening that carries over into a period of 7 days of unleavened bread. The bread is unleavened because leaven carried the connotation of sin with it. In the end, Passover is a celebratory reminder that God set the Jewish people free from the bondage of Egypt.


As this Crosstalk moved along it explained the connection we have to Passover as Christians, witnessing to Jewish friends, the purpose of the red heifer and more.

Tom DeWeese is the president of the American Policy Center. Tom is one of the nations' leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence and protecting our constitutionally guaranteed rights.


Tom believes we are being destroyed from within. He says you discover this when you talk to people from around the nation and ask them what's happening to them personally. He's found that people are being arrested for putting gardens in their yard, the equity in homes is being destroyed and fighting city hall when some of these things come up is getting harder.


From there Tom talked about the destruction of American industry by the EPA. Basically, the EPA has been systematically placing rules that make it impossible for industries to operate. The rules affect things like emissions, water use and the types of products that can be produced.


Congress is supposed to be the ones giving the EPA their authority. Instead, President Obama has been issuing one executive order after another telling them what to do and Congress is 'twiddling their thumbs' not saying anything about it and hence, industries are being destroyed.


Adding to all of this is the drive to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour. Tom noted that study after study shows that when this happens, a lot of jobs are lost.


Tom's organization has been fighting for years against Agenda 21. You may recognize this effort through its various themes like 'Smart Growth' or 'Sustainable Development'. Through this, Tom has seen a direct attack on private property rights that control what you can do on your property, the creation of non-elected regional councils and the funding of Agenda 21 through federal grants. In the case of the grants, they come with specific 'strings attached'. People are then finding out that the more those grants are imposed, the less input your elected officials have in what's taking place.


So what does any of this have to do with the upcoming presidential election? It's the fact that these issues don't seem to be getting much election related discussion. Since it's everyone's responsibility to become informed and communicate with elected officials, this Crosstalk can help as it presents a definition of 'private property rights', a review of the Clean Power Plan, the Housing and Urban Development's Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule and more.
