This hour we start by looking at some headlines making the news and then turn our attention to Iran. Is the U.S. engaged in a proxy war with that country? Are we on the verge of WW III? Why is the Gospel spreading at historic rates in that nation? Then, we will visit with an expert who will explain the dangers inherent in the WHO’s Pandemic Preparedness Agreement. Get ready to think biblically and critically.
The founder of Fathers in the Field will join us to address the #1 societal issue of our time – the FATHERLESSNESS caused by divorce or the abandonment, absenteeism, neglect, indifference, or abuse by a boy’s God-ordained Pastor, Provider, and Protector — his father. Join us for a crucial conversation that continues to impact our homes, the Church, and our nation.
