Twila Brase is President of the Citizen's Council for Health Freedom and is a certified public health nurse. She provides a daily commentary on the Health Freedom Minute and has provided testimony before legislative bodies. The Citizens Council for Health Freedom supports patient and doctor freedom, medical innovation and the right of citizens to a confident patient-doctor relationship.

The Emergency Health Powers Act was developed on a federal basis for 3 years before 9-11. It was a model piece of legislation and different states agreed to pass different parts of it. 40 states have these powers including quarantine, isolation, commandeering of private property, engaging the National Guard to enforce the law, forced treatment examination testing and more. Some of this can be done without a court order or by obtaining a court order after you are detained.

Obviously this act broadens state powers way beyond the scope of basic societal health concerns but even at that level it gives authorities the ability to determine which hospitals have certain types of life saving equipment or medications.

Twila also presented her views concerning hospital preparation for Ebola, the spreading of this disease, how our nation should be responding to this outbreak and much more.

Vic began this edition of Crosstalk by noting yesterday's Supreme Court ruling that allows for same-sex marriages in many states. This progress by the homosexual community didn't happen overnight. Preparations were made for this a generation ago or longer with people teaching values that are contrary to Christian biblical values.

The acceptance of transgenderism appears to be in the planning stage as some in our society are seeking to swiftly and subtly introduce pro-transgender policies into schools. For example, in September the personnel committee at Sparta High School in Sparta, Wisconsin, voted unanimously to create a gender identity policy that gives boys who identify as girls the right to be involved in girls gym classes, participate in girls intramural sports and the ability to use the girls locker and rest rooms. The school board tabled the matter until next Tuesday (October 14th).

Vic cited a Williams Institute (at U.C.L.A.) study indicating that the estimated transgender adult population of the U.S. is at .3% (three-tenths of one percent). This means that out of the student population at Sparta High School, less than 3 students are likely to consider themselves as transgender In other words, there is no historic precedent or statistical basis that points to a great need for such policies. In spite of this, there are those who contend that such policies are needed for those individuals who claim to have a deep seeded sense of a different gender at any given moment.

Have you examined the curriculum that your children deal with on a daily basis? Do you attend PTA meetings? Have you run for open school board positions? These are things to think about as Vic looks at this crucial topic and how it's also affecting communities in the states of Kentucky, Minnesota and Nebraska.

Mat Staver is the founder, president and general counsel of Liberty Counsel, an international, non-profit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family. Mat is also Dean of the Liberty School of Law.

According to Mat, last year in a 5-4 decision authored by Justice Kennedy, the U.S. Supreme Court issued the Windsor case with respect to the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Mat feels that decision was like throwing a lighter on a can of gasoline to burn up marriage. So as states across America have been striking down marriage laws due to last year's case, now the Supreme Court has decided it's going to stand on the sidelines while marriage 'burns' because they don't want to hear marriage cases dealing with the states of Virginia, Oklahoma, Utah, Wisconsin and Indiana.

This means that the lower court decisions remain intact for each state. The number moves from 19 states that recognize so-called same-sex marriage to 24 with six more states likely to follow.

Mat also shows from history why a governor or attorney general doesn't have to comply with what's taking place in their state; the harm that exists in allowing same-sex marriage; why silence is not an option on this issue; the tragedy of gender confusion and much more.

Joseph Schillero is the founder of Gateway to the Heart Ministries. His ministry is dedicated to using the teaching and preaching of God's Word to equip people with biblical truths and principles to help them make wise choices concerning their media selections. Joseph is the author of the booklet, 'Biblical Filters for Your Media Choices'.

To begin the program, Jim noted the following from Joseph's website:

--Children today spend more time watching television than any other activity.
--90% of 8-16 year olds have viewed Internet pornography.
--Nearly 50% of Christian men say that porn is a major problem in their home.
--Most of the top selling video games contain extreme violence.

According to Joseph, the statistics tell us that when it comes to movies, TV, music and video games, the lifestyles of the Church and the world are really not that different. That fact was the burden on his heart that he feels God used to have him start Gateway to the Heart Ministries.

In response, Joseph wrote a booklet, 'Biblical Filters for Your Media Choices' that challenges readers to consider the following:

#1—Are my media choices taking up too much of my time?
#2—Are my media choices encouraging me to worship someone or something else other
than God?
#3—Is a central theme or message of my media choice positive?
#4—Has my media choice influenced me to sin against God?
#5—Will my media choice bring temptation into my life?
#6—What does a media choice say about the value of other people?
#7—Will my media choice desensitize my view of evil?
#8—Would I want others following the example of my media choices?
#9—Am I asking the right question about my media choices?
#10—Am I glorifying God through my media choices?

Guest: Ron Rhodes

Listen: MP3| Order

Ron Rhodes is President of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries, a teaching and resource ministry that specializes in defending Christianity against atheists, agnostics, skeptics, the cults, world religions and any group that teaches false doctrine. Ron is the author of more than 60 books, many of which focus on the topic of apologetics. One of his latest books, which is discussed on this program is called, 'Conversations with Jehovah's Witnesses'.

On numerous weekends there are large conventions in stadiums and complexes across America where Jehovah's Witnesses gather. Ron indicated that these conventions have tremendous public relations value for the witnesses because when you get that many people together, witnesses in the local community get to see just how strong their organization is and it gives them confidence that they are the true people of God.

While in attendance there are sermons, dramas, appearances by missionaries and international delegates along with a presentation of the Lord's Supper for the 'anointed class'.

Appeals to attend such conferences can be deceiving to those outside the organization because Jehovah's Witnesses may use a theme that appears biblical. Ron, however, pointed out that this is a tactic used by the witnesses as they utilize biblical terms familiar to many that have been redefined to mean something entirely different.

Ron explained that one of the keys to reaching Jehovah's Witnesses is to ask strategic questions that make them really think about the things they've been taught.

For example, Jehovah's Witnesses believe that God created all things including Jesus. They believe that Jesus is the archangel Michael. Ron responds by reading Isaiah 44:24 where God is speaking to his people, telling them that he created the universe alone by himself. Then he takes them to Colossians 1:16 and John 1:3, verses that tell us that Jesus created the universe. So the obvious question is this: If only God created the universe and if Jesus is also the creator of the universe, what does that say about Christ's identity?

Ron also looks at the organization's view of God, heaven, hell, the resurrection, one of their false prophecies as well as his latest book that gives the reader a chance to observe a real conversation with a Jehovah's Witness.
