Air Date March 2, 2015
Hour 1 – Killing Christians
To many of the Christians in the Middle East today, a “momentary, light affliction” means enduring only torture instead of martyrdom. Tom Doyle, Vice President of e3 Partners will take us to the secret meetings, the torture rooms, the grim prisons, and even the executions that are the “calling” of countless Muslims-turned-Christians in that region.
Hour 2 – Ark Builder Discrimination / Gospel Distortion
Is the government treating Christian entities like second class citizens? Ken Ham, President of Answers in Genesis, will discuss his court case showing the increasing discrimination toward religion in America. Then Chelsen Vicari, Evangelical Program Director for the Institute on Religion and Democracy, will warn us of churches that are repackaging Christianity by distorting the authority of Scripture and leading young people away from the teachings of Jesus Christ.
