On this 43rd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, Jim began Crosstalk by explaining the tolling bell that would be heard throughout the program. Each toll represented approximately 258,000 abortions, a process that occurs about every 17 seconds in America. In total, approximately 58 million babies have fallen victim to abortion due to Roe v. Wade.


After reviewing the historical time-line of the Roe decision and the pertinent people involved, Jim mentioned many news stories related to this great holocaust including:


--National Right to Life estimates that since abortion became legal abortion is a tragedy not only because an innocent child dies, but because of the lasting impact abortion has on the mother.
--In late November of 2015 the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found a 4.2% drop in the number of abortions for the 2012 reporting year.
--Hundreds of thousands of Americans participating in the annual March for Life represents a deeply unsettled issue for our nation. It's the lives of children in their first nine months who are not protected by law.
--Debbie Wasserman Schultz laments the fact that Millennial women are not activists for abortion rights and are complacent because their entire lives have been lived after Roe v. Wade was decided.
--The House of Representatives will attempt to override President Obama's veto of a Planned Parenthood defunding measure.
--Some abortion doctors use religion to justify their practice.
--This week the Supreme Court announced they will not hear an appeal that would reinstate an Arkansas law prohibiting abortion if an unborn child has a heartbeat.
--The full Kansas Court of Appeals issued a decision today that maintains the status quo blocking the first-in-the-nation law banning gruesome dismemberment abortions.
--Florida legislators are moving forward with a bill that would protect women by holding abortion clinics accountable to higher health and safety standards.
--This week the Wisconsin State Senate approved two bills that will help further defund Planned Parenthood.
--An Alliance Defending Freedom public records request has revealed that Planned Parenthood's Wisconsin affiliate provided researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with the hearts and brains of unborn babies up to 18 weeks old and within 5 minutes of being aborted. Both UW and Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin have denied any such exchange.
--Liberty Counsel has filed a lawsuit on behalf of 3 faith-based crisis pregnancy centers in California challenging the law that went into effect on January 1st requiring non-profit centers to provide information about the availability of abortion to patients.
--Planned Parenthood of Illinois is forging through the controversy, steadily expanding services and moving ahead with ambitious makeovers of their organization's 17 health centers in the state.
--An abortionist known for burning the bodies of aborted babies has lost his license after Oklahoma state officials busted him for illegally selling abortion-causing drugs.
--6 years ago this February, the Drug Enforcement Agency raided a doctor's office in West Philadelphia, PA, expecting to uncover a 'pill mill' but instead found a 'house of horrors' which led to numerous charges against late term abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
--Alpha Care, the Philadelphia women's clinic that shares a wall with the clinic Gosnell occupied, is relocating.
--NARAL Pro-Choice America released a statement claiming abortion foes are the minority in America.
--The Guttmacher Institute revealed that states across America passed nearly as many laws protecting pre-born children in the last 5 years as in the previous 15.
--John McCain loses a major GOP endorsement.
--Planned Parenthood and its affiliates attempting a lawsuit against the Center for Medical Progress.

Have you ever been in a conversation regarding religious or spiritual matters only to be accused of being narrow minded? What's interesting about this response is that those same people probably wouldn't argue with you that water is composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. Is God being narrow minded for limiting water's composition in this way? A skilled conductor will not permit his first violin to play off key by even the slightest amount. Is this conductor being narrow minded? What about the auto mechanic who goes to great lengths to make certain engine parts are within thousandths of an inch so that the assembled engine runs reliably. Is that mechanic being narrow minded?


In spite of these facts, Christians who hold to the idea of 'grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone' continue to be accused of being narrow minded as others strive for a broad mindedness in order to establish humanistic unity.


Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Mike Gendron. For over 30 years, Mike was a devout Roman Catholic and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church. He followed the priests, the sacraments and was depending upon his own good works for salvation. However, in 1981 after attending an apologetics seminar called, 'Evidence for the Christian Faith' the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. As he searched the Scriptures he was amazed to see how often the Bible contradicts the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. Mike placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. He founded a ministry, Proclaiming the Gospel that points people to Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior.


A video was recently released in which Pope Francis communicated his prayer intentions that clearly expressed his belief that all of the world's major religions are different paths to the same God. Mike noted that no one seeks after the true God yet there are many gods sought after by people. The are formed by religious traditions or even in the imaginations of men. The true God is revealed in Scripture and the only way to approach the true God is through Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and man.


Mike described true Christianity not as a religion but as a relationship with Jesus Christ. On the other hand, he described Catholicism as being no different from the other religions of the world in that it contains a works righteousness salvation formula that attempts to appease an all holy and righteous God. This means Catholicism and all other religions have a common spiritual bond.


The Bible reveals a biblical unity. It's a sovereign work of the Holy Spirit, not of man and it demonstrates a common faith in the Gospel. On the other hand, the Pope is pushing for a false unity. It's a rebuilding of the religious Tower of Babel by bringing all people together under the power and influence of his papacy.


One example comes from the Imam of the Mosque of Rome who is indicating that Pope Francis will be visiting the Grand Mosque of Rome the 27th of this month. Until now no Pope has visited this mosque which opened in 1995. If confirmed, this will be Pope Francis' 5th visit to this mosque.


What does all of this signify? Is this part of the pathway to a global religion? You decide when you review this edition of Crosstalk.

Guest:  David Rubin

Listen: MP3 ​​| Order


A hostage swap took place recently between the U.S. and Iran. Sanctions against Iran were lifted and nations are looking to help them build new nuclear facilities. This is in spite of the fact that this is a nation that has vowed to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.


Joining Jim to discuss the ramifications of this news was David Rubin. David is the former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, and is founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children's Fund dedicated to healing the trauma of child victims of terrorist attacks and rebuilding the heartland of Israel. He is the author of 4 books including: Sparks from Zion and The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama.


David is against prisoner swaps because he feels it encourages the taking of more hostages. He thinks the release of our hostages should have been demanded long ago as a precondition to the negotiations but it wasn't. Yes, they've been released, as have been some Iranians by the U.S., but something else is being released: 150 billion dollars which David believes won't go to stacking supermarkets with produce or putting food on the table of citizens. Instead he believes the money will be used for military purposes as well as to export the Islamic revolution.


David described 2 aspects to this revolution. The first involves the tsunami of terrorism and the second involves trying to take over the world demographically. In other words, major funding is being given toward this effort to export Muslims and to finance the sneeking of such individuals, such as illegal aliens, into Europe and into the U.S.


How does David feel Israel will respond to this news and what's the latest concerning terror attacks in Israel? Who were these individuals that our government released? What are we to make of Russian President Putin's invitation to Jews in Europe facing anti-semitism to return to Russia? How does David feel about the presidential race in the U.S.? These along with caller questions are answered on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

Guest: Emily Fuentes

Listen: MP3 ​​| Order

Christian persecution around the world has reached unprecedented levels. 2015 is said to have been the deadliest year for Christians worldwide.


Discussing this trend with Jim was Emily Fuentes. Emily is the communications director of Open Doors USA, an organization that has worked in the world's most oppressive countries, empowering Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs. Open Doors equips Christians in more than 60 countries.


Jim began by putting things in perspective. He did this by having Emily define just what is meant when she speaks of persecution. Persecution, as defined by Open Doors USA, materializes in different ways based on the nations they are working in. They categorize persecution in six different areas such as violence, persecution from family members, the larger community, government and more.


Emily reported that from what they've observed, there was a drastic increase in Christian deaths throughout the world. That's based upon a conservative marking scale. It's conservative because Open Doors USA only reports those deaths where they have the actual verification of the person's name, date of death, etc. so she believes the actual number of Christian deaths is even higher.


Open Doors USA had never seen a year like 2014 for persecutions and they were afraid that 2015 would be even more violent. That came true as the death toll doubled with many more instances of violent persecution. So in 2015, a nation required a 4% increase in persecution just to get on the World Watch List.


Jim noticed that some nations have more persecution but they declined in rank on the World Watch List. This included Syria, Sudan, Tanzania, Algeria and Turkey. Why is this? It's because persecution has become that much worse in other nations.


Other nations on the Open Doors USA Worldwide Watch List that were referenced on this broadcast included: North Korea, Iraq, Eritrea, Pakistan, Libya, Bahrain, Niger, Iran, Mexico and the nations that make up the former Soviet Union.

Jim began by noting that the Daily Signal reported in 2015 that there were more Islamist inspired terror attacks and plots within the U.S. than the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 combined. In spite of this we have an administration and a Congress that has dulled its ears to the threat that Islam poses to America. After all, it's just a religion of peace. Or is it?


Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Robert Spencer. Robert is the director of Jihad Watch. He has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the FBI, the United States Central Command, the United States Army Command and General Staff College and numerous other entities including the Joint Terrorism Task Force. He has been banned by the British government from entering the United Kingdom for the crime of pointing out that Islam has doctrines of violence against unbelievers. He is the Vice President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and a weekly columnist for PJ Media and FrontPage Magazine. He is the author of 14 books including 'The Truth About Muhammad' and 'The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam'.


According to Robert, ISIS is known as the Islamic State because everything they do is based upon Islam. Everything they do you can find justification for within Islamic texts and teachings. Proof of this is shown by the fact that through worldwide recruitment they now have 30,000 foreign Muslims in Iraq and Syria fighting with ISIS. So to say that Islam has nothing to do with ISIS is to cut off our ability to deal with it.


Can the Islamic State destroy the U.S.? Robert believes they may not be able to do that entirely, however, this is something that they do explicitly state. What they can do and are working toward is to completely destabilize the U.S. to the point that they disrupt our law enforcement, intelligence and government apparatus. The idea is to overwhelm our nation with numerous terror plots to the point that we collapse.


Jim had Robert answer a number of questions and deal with numerous other issues related to this topic including:




--How does he see the future of Europe as it relates to Islam's control?
--Why isn't our government able to 'connect the dots' on this issue of Islam and
terrorism?
--An Islamic State manual that teaches Muslims to pretend to be Christians.
--Two Virginia Muslims have been charged with attempting to support ISIS. Why are
we seeing such interest by some individuals to join this group?
--Are we tracking those who join ISIS and then come back?
--An Islamist is running 140 taxpayer funded charter schools in 26 American
states. Who is running these and what is his agenda?
--How have school textbook publishers been affected by the multicultural
imperative, especially as it pertains to Islam?
--What about the intimidation of American businesses and industry to become
Shariah compliant? What part does the Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR) have to do with this?
--Has any community been successful in stopping a mosque from being formed?
--Are there a lot of people who claim to be followers of Islam but have no clue
regarding what the Qur'an really teaches?
