When we first started broadcasting in 2010, we discussed the subtle ways that apostasy was sneaking into the Bride of Christ and deceiving some away from the Truth. But now it seems that it doesn’t sneak anymore; it marches right down the aisle and takes a seat in the front row. Often it is invited up to the pulpit and promoted as the new paradigm.
Church, when did it become normal to ignore the warnings of this? To scold people who would come in private to their pastors and ministry leaders to alert them of these lies taking over in our Bible studies, our youth groups and our church libraries? When did we start calling those who discern these things the nasty pharisees, the armchair quarterbacks or the critics?
Evil is coming at us fast and furious. And if the scales are dropping from our own eyes, how are we helping our children understand the times we are in? In our first part of the program, we’re talking with Freedom Project Education Academic Director and teacher Dr. James “Duke” Pesta.
Named after conservative icon John Wayne, Dr. Duke has taught at universities and high schools and was instrumental in creating and launching a Bible course in the Texas Public School system. A true Classical Education and Americanist advocate, Dr. Pesta worked tirelessly to overcome challenges from the school system and the courts to help make this course available to interested highschoolers in Texas.
In our second half hour we’re covering news of the day and your comments and emails.
