​It's an all too common scenario unfolding again...Islamic terrorism. This time the location was Nice, France, the 3rd major terrorist attack in their nation in 19 months. A 31 year old Tunisian French national with the first name of Mohamed, told police he was delivering ice cream then after witnesses reported him yelling Allahu Akbar, plowed his truck armed with explosives into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in France. The carnage left 84 dead including 10 children and at least 202 injured with 52 in critical care, among those include 25 in intensive care.

Joining Jim to discuss this tragedy was Usama Dakdok. Usama is the founder and director of the Straightway of Grace Ministry, equipping Christians to be effective witness of Jesus Christ to their Muslim neighbors, as well as ministering to Muslims directly. He is Egyptian born, studied Islam and Islamic law since a young age, speaks fluent Arabic and has translated the Quran into English. He is the speaker on the program, 'Revealing the Truth about Islam' which airs daily on VCY America.

During the attack in Nice, witnesses claim they heard 'Allahu Akbar' being yelled. What does this mean? According to Usama, this is the shout of victory. Muslims say this 5 times a day during their prayers. It's what Mohammed taught the Muslims to shout when they kill infidels. They even shout this when they kill each other because the group that says it believes they are the true Muslims and other Muslims are not. It means 'Allah is bigger' yet we know Allah is Satan who desires to kill, steal and destroy.

Is it possible this was a 'lone wolf' attack? Usama responded by noting that if Mohammed is that wolf, then it's true. So until the media starts reading the verses of the Quran that encourage Muslims to do what they're doing and until they begin quoting the teachings of Mohammed as is done on VCY, the problem of Islam will continue to grow.

Jim indicated that President Obama gave a statement that made no mention of the identity or ideology behind this attack while the French president had no difficulty describing the attack as Islamic terrorism. Why is that? Usama believes President Obama is a Muslim and he communicated years ago that having him in the White House would give Muslims the 'green light'

As this broadcast moved along, Jim had Usama comment on the following:

--While the carnage was taking place in France, a Luther College professor presented a seminar on Islamophobia at the Rochester, Minnesota, public library.

--The Obama administration is increasing the number of Syrian refugees being processed for entry into the U.S. He wants 10,000 refugees by the end of September.

--According to Pamela Geller, the Council on American/Islamic Relations (CAIR) has met with Congress a total of 325 times so far this year alone. Usama has said that the Justice Department has identified CAIR as a Muslim Brotherhood entity designated as terrorists by the United Arab Emirates. Why are our officials having so many meetings with them?

--It was reported through this week that the FBI and the CIA are looking to increase the so-called diversity of their agencies and that includes hiring more Arab Americans. They hope to achieve this goal by holding a career fair in Dearborn, Michigan.

​Jim began this edition of Crosstalk with an update regarding the Conscience Protection Act that was discussed on July 12th. The House voted 245 to 182 to pass the measure. It still has to make its way through the Senate and then on to the president. This keeps the government from discriminating against health care providers who do not want to perform or cooperate with abortions. It also gives health care providers the power to bring civil action if they're targeted by such discrimination.

Jim also noted that news sources are indicating that Indiana Governor Mike Pence may be the man Donald Trump has slated to be his vice presidential running mate. Trump plans to make a formal announcement regarding his pick tomorrow morning.

In II Timothy chapter 3, the apostle Paul says, 'This know also that in the last days perilous times shall come.' We're seeing this today in America as rage is booming across the land. The rage is being fueled by problems between races and as the police have become involved in order to protect the masses, people have been questioning even the motives of law enforcement.

One group is responding by asking for participation in a national day of rage scheduled for tomorrow, July 15th. Some believe that this is just a rumor while others, like the Department of Defense, is taking this very seriously.

The 'hacktivist' group known as 'Anonymous' is claiming that this day will be totally non-violent. According to a You-Tube clip that has come forth, this group is calling upon U.S. citizens, in conjunction with the Black Lives Matter movement as well as other civil rights activists, to take part in a day of action against what they see as the injustices of corrupt police officers. The plan is to flood the streets in certain cities around the nation.

The idea of a non-violent day of rage is a contradiction. The use of the term 'rage' in this case would actually seem to promote the possibility of unrest. What does the Bible say about the use of rage? To help answer this question, Jim had listeners consider Ephesians 4:31, Psalm 2:1-5, Psalm 37:8, Proverbs 14:16-17, 15:1, 15:18, 16:32, 22:24, 29:22 and Daniel 3:13.

​This Crosstalk broadcast focused on what's going on in the heart. In Hebrews 12 we are told to '...lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us...' In Colossians we are told to mortify or put to death the deeds of the flesh. How do we do it? How can we have victory over sins that have become habits in our life?

Discussing this with Jim was Dr. Stuart Scott. He is professor of biblical counseling at the Master's College and adjunct professor at Southern Seminary. He has served more than 3 decades in the area of biblical counseling and pastoral ministry. He is the author of several books including 'The Exemplary husband: A Biblical Perspective', 'Biblical Manhood', and the book that was discussed on this broadcast, 'Killing Sin Habits: Conquering Sin with Radical Faith'.

What are sin habits? Dr. Scott described sin as any lack of conformance or transgression of the law of God. A habit is what we get into comfortably, automatically, or repeatedly. So there are times when we get into repeated activity of the same sin. Eventually we can get to a point where we make these sin choices comfortably, automatically and repeatedly. Believers may want to stop these habits but are seemingly unable to.

From here, Jim has Dr. Scott describe the temptation/lust cycle. The cycle involves temptation, feeble struggle, rationalization, unholy surrender/hopelessness, real guilt, momentary guilty pleasures/relief, sorrow and shame, confession to God delayed, actual confession, Christ not put on and isolation.

Dr. Scott was careful to note that even though the Bible tells us to mortify the deeds of the flesh, we can't eradicate sin from our life. Instead the Bible instructs us to starve it and don't give in to it and replace it with a right love and desire toward Christ. This must be done with the help of the Holy Spirit and not in our own strength.

What is genuine repentance? What are some areas that will hinder us from obtaining victory? These questions and others are answered as Dr. Scott helps listeners use Scripture as their battle plan to kill sinful habits.

​Jim began this edition of Crosstalk with news from the Family Research Council. Tomorrow (Wednesday July 13th), the U.S. House of Representatives will be voting on the Conscience Protection Act. This act would stop government discrimination against pro-life individuals who object to being forced to participate in abortion. It's known as H.R. 4828/S. 2927. You can contact your legislators regarding this issue at 202-225-3121.

Alex Newman is an international freelance journalist, educator and consultant. He has a degree in journalism from the University of Florida and has worked for numerous publications. He's the co-author of the book 'Crimes of the Educators'. It's subtitle is, 'How Utopians Are Using Government Schools to Destroy America's Children'. As a freelance journalist he writes for The New American.

Alex described how the Human Rights Council of the United Nations, by a rather narrow margin, passed a resolution that creates a position for an LGBT czar. This individual will be in charge of monitoring human rights situations as they relate to the LGBT community. Alex believes it will 'bully' governments into adopting the LGBT agenda.

Alex indicated that the U.N. wants to introduce the LGBT agenda in schools around the world because he believes LGBT proponents have given up on the older generation. So the first target will be schools around the world through items like the World Core Curriculum.

Proponents of this effort are claiming that international law mandates not just the legalization of homosexuality/homosexual marriage but also acceptance and promotion by everyone. If you speak out against it, you are then an international criminal guilty of committing crimes against humanity.

According to Alex, this has nothing to do with equality. This is an attempt to silence the truth and overturn reality and God's design by using the coercive apparatus of government at the regional, national and international levels to pursue the LGBT agenda.

This program also discussed the American Sovereignty Restoration Act (HR-1205). This was first introduced in 1997. Very simply, it would do what the name indicates. It would restore American sovereignty by getting the U.S. out of the U.N., it would kick the U.N. off of U.S. soil and it would end all taxpayer funding for the U.N.

​Christianity has been barred from public schools but Islam's teachings are on the rise in these institutions. Apparently for Islam that is not enough. In fact, for some time there has been an Islamic movement in existence paid for by taxpayer dollars and put into motion by charter schools with connections to an individual named Fethullah Gulen.

Joining Jim to discuss this topic was 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 work. He ran for office of governor in Washington State in 2012. He has served as a police officer and a pastor.

Fethullah Gulen is from Turkey. He's a disciple of Said Nursi who was trying to bring reform to Islam. Gulen has worked diligently to return Turkey back to its Islamic roots and revive the Ottoman Empire. He claims to be a Sufi Muslim and wants reform but as Shahram noted, they can't reform because they can't get away from Mohammed and his teachings.

Gulen is also a major player in the arena of modern charter schools. Across the U.S., 139 Gulen schools exist in 26 states and have been getting government funding estimated to be over a billion dollars. In Texas alone where 33 Gulen schools exist, they received close to 100 million dollars a year.

None of the Gulen schools are connected by name so they are hard to track. For example, the names can sound very benign and include: The Horizon Science Academy (in Ohio) and The Harmony Science Academy (in Texas). Other names in other locations include the Milwaukee Math and Science Academy, the Wisconsin Career Academy or The Magnolia Science Academy.

Shahram explains how this is a 'cover' that helps Islam weave its way into the Interfaith movement, however, it actually moves much deeper than that. Jim proves this point by presenting a quote from Gulen from 1999 where he admits that Muslims '...must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers.' Later in the broadcast you get a better indication as to what these arteries and power centers are as Jim says the Gulen movement seeks to reach businessmen, journalists and teachers.
