The Truly Confused Evangelicals

Jan Markell spends the hour with Eric Barger talking about one of his newest DVDs, “The Truly Confused Evangelicals: Understanding and Resisting Postmodernism in the Church.” They take a look at some contemporary pastors and teachers who have truly gone astray. The sound bites played are stunning. Evangelicalism is making the same mistake the Mainline Protestants made 150 years ago as they invented a “new way of doing church.” But this is leaving enormous wreckage, with folks unable to find a solid church. Find the DVD here.

They also project into the new year and talk about at least one possibility: An Israeli strike on Iran.  They discuss the ecumenical push taking place right now heavily led by Pope Francis but evangelicals are cooperating. Then Jan talks to Pastor Steven Khoury in Israel. There is unusual tension going on there. Steven gives an insider’s opinion as he is a Jerusalem pastor.

Global Government and the Coming Perfect Storm

The web of deception being engineered by Satan’s forces is vast and well planned. Global government is on the horizon. But it will take a crisis – both national and international – to have it implemented. Gary Kah, Jan Markell and Eric Barger discuss this the entire hour and the options that could lead to such crises. This is sobering. The racial unrest may play a role in this. A perfect storm is forming to create a one-world government sooner than most expected.

When Tyranny Threatens the Pastor’s Pulpits

In segment one, Eric Barger talks to Dan Fisher who keeps the memory of “The Black Robed Regiment” alive. They were America’s “patriot preachers” during the Revolutionary War. Then Jan Markell talks to Twila Brase from the Citizen’s Council on Health Freedom about Ebola and ObamaCare. They also discuss options for Christians who want to opt out of ObamaCare. Twila is blunt that America won’t remain America as long as government controls the people of America through ObamaCare and healthcare. Jan closes talking to Pastor Jack Hibbs about government intrusion into our pulpits. Though the Mayor of Houston has backed down on her sermon demand, the harassment of pastors has just begun. However, many are fighting back.

The Social Justice Gospel: Poverty Above the Cross

Jan Markell and co-host Eric Barger talk about the “social justice gospel” for the first two segments. These folks often put poverty and “equality” above the cross. They will feed the stomach but not the soul. They look at primarily Jim Wallis, a long-time Marxist who has “moderated” to a Socialist and who is an Obama advisor. Joining Jan and Eric are Mary Danielson, author of a product we carry about Wallis, and Mike LeMay from “Stand Up for the Truth” radio. Find info on other helpful pamphlets here. Then Jan gives a short commentary on why Barack Obama calls ISIS “ISIL.” It’s all about “the Levant” and the destruction of Israel.

Perilous Times

Jan Markell and co-host Eric Barger spend the entire hour with Rep. Michele Bachmann. She spent August travelling to five nations. The purpose, in part, was to learn more about ISIS and it’s threat to the free world, particularly America. Why did Barack Obama release the ISIS leader from prison in Iraq in 2009? How is the President’s worldview destabilizing the entire world? She also spent time on our southern border in August and gives a troubling report. Bachmann represents the 6th District in Minnesota and has been a long-time friend of Olive Tree Ministries. She is a committed believer and a student of the end-times.

Ecumenical Efforts: That The World Might Be One

Eric Barger takes the first segment to talk to prophecy teacher and researcher, John Haller, about the evangelical slide into ecumenism. What’s behind the meetings between evangelicals and Pope Francis? Then Jan Markell talks to Pastor Steven Khoury for the balance of the program. He is an Arab who loves Israel and who has paid a terrible price for that. He ministers in Israel as an evangelical Arab pastor. (He is one of our "Understanding the Times" Conference speakers October 4.) Also, what was behind the Sen. Ted Cruz incident where Mideast Christians came against him? (*Contact info for John Haller here.)
