Man Up Time: Fathers' Leadership Desperately Needed. Topics discussed include: Celebration of Fathers’ Day. In what areas of life and relationships are fathers most needed today? Is there anything wrong with children being kept in “detention centers” when they get separated from their parents at the border?



The Islamic Misconception of Isaiah Part 1

Ken Timmerman is a Broadcast Partner with Jimmy DeYoung on PTIB. On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy will receive a report on geo-political events happening around the world. Ken's report will include the Trump-Kim Summit; Trump's Middle East Agenda; Turkish President Erdogan is in a fight for his political life; and the Iranian people using social media to defy the radical political  leaders of Iran, and to actually praise the Jewish State of Israel.

When we pray, there’s a bigger purpose at work than we realize. For us, getting the answer is all-consuming. For God, developing our character is the real objective. In this message we learn that God is at work, even when our prayers seem to bounce off the ceiling.

Dr. David Stevens is the chief executive officer of the Christian Medical and Dental Association, the nation's largest faith-based organization of healthcare professionals. Dr. Stevens has also served as a missionary doctor in Kenya for some 10 years. He's also conducted numerous seminars on such issues as stem cell research, human cloning, genetics, faith and health, physician-assisted suicide, abortion and other topics.

On January 1st, California opened the door for the recreational use of marijuana. Newsweek has reported that at least 12 states are poised to consider the legalization of marijuana.

Dr. Stevens believes that part of the reason this is happening is because of big money. George Soros has poured 100 million dollars into the Drug Policy Alliance. That's a group that's pushing legalization across the nation. Also, in Colorado, they have 28 full-time lobbyists at the state legislature, more than on any issue.

Marijuana back in the 60's had about 1% THC content. Today, the average across the U.S. is 12%. If you go to Colorado, it's about 30%. THC is a reference to the active substance in marijuana: Tetrohydrocannabinol. That's what gives the 'high', the hallucinations, the feeling of ease, the loss of contact with time and other bodily effects.

Other effects to note include breathing problems, it increases the heart rate, gives an increased risk of heart attack, it's very bad for pregnant women, if used in high amounts it can actually be the cause, rather than the cure, for intense nausea and vomiting, it makes schizophrenia worse, causes lower satisfaction with life, relationship problems, less academic and career success, and the list goes on.

THC doesn't give any medicinal effects. That comes from cannabinol. Cannabinol doesn't give a 'high' but does have some effect on glaucoma, nausea and other things. So the mantra being promoted is that if we just legalize it, that will cut down on the use of it.

Dr. Stevens explained that an independent group estimated that out of 13-1/2 million pounds of marijuana produced in California, 80% of it was illegally shipped out of state, and of the remaining 20%, only 5% went into medicinal marijuana.

So why are numerous states looking to jump aboard the marijuana bandwagon? Again, it all goes back to money. Marijuana is getting taxed. It had been estimated that by this year, marijuana would be a 3.5 billion dollar business in California and a 5 billion dollar business by next year, with the state making a billion dollars in taxes.

So it's not the legalization of marijuana that's really the issue, it's the commercialization. Under commercialization you need to get more current users and you want them to become ever more frequent users. Obtaining that goal requires more marketing which is just what you'll see in Colorado as marijuana is promoted in TV, print, etc. This is resulting in huge profits for the state and those involved in it. Just to prove the point, Dr. Stevens noted that in one minority area of Denver, there's 1 marijuana shop for every 47 people.

Dr. Stevens has no problem with medical marijuana as long as it's handled like medicine. He gave the example of morphine which is an effective drug for pain relief. Morphine comes from heroin which in turn, comes from poppy plants. We don't allow people to grow poppy plants in their backyard and manufacture their own heroin, but that's what we're doing with marijuana. There's no manufacturer, there's no FDA approval, no standard chemical composition for potency and quality, no standard dosage, no safe delivery system, and no knowledge of interaction with other drugs you may be taking. Instead, in California, the legal system is basically saying that if you need marijuana for medicinal use, you can grow six plants in your backyard as long as people can't see them. Then you can consume that marijuana in whatever dosage you want.

There's much more to learn on this subject and Jim helps bring it to you in this very informative Crosstalk interview.

On today's edition of PTIB Jimmy DeYoung has his weekly conversation with Dave James on an issue that the Church needs a Biblical understanding of for a Christians daily walk. Dave and Jimmy will discuss the report that many are saying that we are now in a "Post-Biblical era in Christianity"; why the Church, especially the young people in the Church, are not accepting the Bible as the final authority; and why this is the time we need to double-down on our study of the Word of God, especially the Prophetic passages in the Bible so that we can live how the Lord wants us to in the end of times.

It's relativism versus reality and as always, reality is winning.  In this week's abbreviated boralogue, John looks at the failure of relativistic laws to hold up in the face of real life, using Seattle's decision to repeal a head tax they had just enacted a month prior after several businesses suggested that perhaps they may skip town and take their money with them.

Policies that go against the beliefs of people, though wildly unpopular, are being enacted in Canada.  Natasha Fernandes (, Board Member for Canadian Physicians for Life describes how doctors in Ontario will have to refer patients to abortion or euthanasia services, even if it violates the doctor's beliefs.

Does the populist victory in recent Italian elections indicate the formation of cracks in the globalist economy?  Dave McAlvany (, host of the McAlvany Weekly Commentary discusses the state of the EU financial markets, the future of the global economy, and the raising of interest rates in the United States.

John and Producer Steve look at President Trump and his plans in the Middle East and his relationship with both Benjamin Netanyahu and Justin Trudeau.  We finish the show with financial analyst and AI blogger Cris Sheridan ( who gives an update on the progress of artificial intelligence, including the ability to perfectly mimic someone's voice to say whatever you want them to say.


John’s quote of the week:    

"People with constantly changing, oftentimes self-contradicting morals, are trying to dictate to people by law, with firm constant morals, that they shouldn't have firm morals when their relative morals go against them."

It happens again and again. A child is at death’s door, and even after urgent prayer, the child dies anyway. Where was God? When prayer is not answered as we’d like, many simply stop praying. What is God doing?

Jim presented the history of how this special day became a national holiday, why fathers are such a critical component of the family unit, some wisdom regarding fatherhood from the late Adrian Rogers, General Douglas MacArthur, Charles Spurgeon and more. After that he opened the phone lines to let Crosstalk listeners pay special tribute and honor toward their fathers. Many heartfelt testimonies and sentiments were expressed and you'll be blessed by all when you review this special Crosstalk broadcast.

This week we are talking about the road to Venezuela in the US.  This is being orchestrated at the highest levels of the government via globalists who are in control of America's politicians and intelligence agencies.  Like Germany under Hitler, Russia under Stalin and Venezuela under Murado, our intelligence agencies are being used against the American people in order to identify and freeze the foe and then destroy them through propaganda, lies and legal ​convictions.  Today we will walk through the time line and the players who have been instrumental in defining and executing the Russian Spy-gate Operation.  Do not be deceived this is a full scale Counterintelligence Operation designed to malign, undermine and destroy President Donald Trump by the left and the globalists.  Join us as we discuss the facts of this operations.

George Orwell famously wrote that, “Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing.”

Orwell is viewed by many as a prophet of a rising tyranny that is inevitable among a free people who refuse to remain vigilant in the protection of it.

Censorship is one of several powerful weapons in the modern political state’s arsenal. The organized crime syndicate commonly known as the United States Federal Government, aided and abetted by media behemoths, has moved American citizens perilously close to the future Orwell envisioned.

Just how bad is it you ask? It is worse than most Americans think. Stay tuned for my conversation with my friend Jon Robberson next in this episode of SER.

Jon Robberson is the Producer of The Hagmann Report and is the co-host along with Joe Hagmann of The Hagmann Daily Report.

The article Jon wrote – Tech Tyrants Collude With Homeland Security “Media Influencers” Are the Target.

High potency marijuana not only can cause mental illness but is responsible for birth defects, low birth weights for babies, more emergency room visits, violence, and an increasing number of school problems. Cases of “scromiting,” or screaming while vomiting, has been linked to marijuana use. Drug policy expert David G. Evans examines how Obama backer George Soros, main funder of the drug legalization movement, is in business with Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and how they are working with libertarian billionaire marijuana investor Peter Thiel to pass a bill to protect the dope industry from federal anti-drug laws. Signing the bill would be the worst mistake of the Trump presidency .

As the immigration debate continues to heat up in our culture, we examine how the progressive left is currently ripping biblical references out of context in order to support their porous, open-borders policy. We specifically look at how these Scripture references are being manipulated, and how they do not represent biblical truth concerning borders and national sovereignty.

Money Mission Friday: Choices Have Consequences. We are joined by Joel Chernoff (Messianic Jewish Alliance of America) and William Parker (CEO Grandview Asset Management). Topics discussed include: Israel and Oil: Enormous Consequence. More Tariffs: The Consequences. Italy, the EU and Debt: The Consequences. Savings: A Good Choice with Good Results. (Originally Aired - 6/1/18)

Hollywood has a long history of making Bible-based movies, including epics by Cecil B. DeMille and John Huston; Italian directors Pasolini and Rossellini; American Martin Scorsese, and Australian Mel Gibson. Broadway musicals have also been made into “biblical” movies and videos such as Jesus Christ, Superstar and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Smaller productions abound including the Visual Bible’s MatthewActs, and The Gospel of John, the TV presentation Judas, Campus Crusade’s The Jesus Project, and Johnny Cash’s The Gospel Road. Then there are upcoming movie epics with proven box-office stars. Noah, for example, features Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins, and there are other offerings planned by two major studios. Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox are planning productions on the life of Moses, with Steven Spielberg being sought to direct one of them. Randall Wallace (director of Braveheart and Secretariat) will direct the upcoming film version of the New York Times bestseller Heaven Is for Real, which, although not a biblical story, claims to give the first-hand experiences of a young boy who visited heaven.
