Fight Back: The LGBT’s Brazen Partnership with the National Education Association with Suzanne Gallagher
00:24:48

The politicization of the public school system is in full swing. As Tucker Carlson noted last week, “You would have to hate children in order to sexualize them. Because sexualizing children screws them up for life. Ask anyone to whom it has happened, period,” Carlson added. “No one should put up with this. No parent should put up with this for one second, no matter what the law says. Your duty, your moral duty, is to defend your children. This is an attack on your children and you should fight back.” SHOW NOTES

Thoughts on the Latest Headlines and a Parenting Minute: Permissive Parenting
00:23:28

Lots to talk about on the show today: 

—Many in the United States have felt the Brits were “overreacting” to the death of the late Queen Elizabeth, but I disagree. A life devoted to country and family is worth honoring. They got it right. 

—Tucker Carlson goes after teachers who are sexualizing students

—CEO of “Beyond Meat” has a story that you can’t make up and finally…Proverbs 22:6 says,  “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” However, many parents today are struggling to discipline their children with any manner of consistently. Not only does this go against Scripture, but it is also harming our children. Today I’ll be talking a bit about parenting and why discipline is really translated LOVE.  SHOW NOTES

Becoming a Kitchen Table Activist with Karen England
00:20:08

“Satan’s classroom.” That’s how my guest, Karen England, describes the public school system that millions of kids are sitting in six hours a day, five days a week. She asks, “If something is not of God, who is it from?” With the answers becoming increasingly clear, Karen founded “The Kitchen Table Activist” in order to give parents and concerned citizens training and free materials to make a difference from their kitchen tables.

Are Public Schools Better in Red States? with Karen England

But is it true?  Today she joins me to discuss why parents in these areas need to look deeper into what’s happening in their child’s school. SHOW NOTES

Title IX
00:21:32

How concerned should we be that the Biden Administration wants to bypass Congress and re-write the 1972 Anti-Discrimination act for schools? Answer: VERY CONCERNED. Even the New York Post is worried about its impact, saying “Biden’s new Title IX rules deputize teachers to override parents on gender identity.” Team Biden’s proposed new Title IX regulations make it clear: They’re coming for your children. The administration ostensibly drafted the rules to protect gay and transgender students from bullying and harassment, but they do nothing of the sort. In reality, President Biden is handing teachers a weapon to subvert parental prerogatives. This change has far-reaching implications. One is that it will be used to keep parents in the dark on everything from curricular material to the fact that a child is socially transitioning at school. Today I’ll be discussing why you MUST get involved to prevent this assault against our kids through the public school system. THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT A PUBLIC COMMENT IS SEPTEMBER 12TH.

If you want to know what the Biden administration thinks about your rights to determine what’s best for your own children, look no further than their latest attempt at stripping you of your rights through revising Title IX.  How could it affect you?  Try this scenario on for size: A parent who refuses to use a child’s preferred pronouns, declines to fill a prescription for puberty blockers, or decides against sending a gender-confused child to an affirming therapist thus would be seen as “discriminating” against his or her child.

Life is Winning with Christine Yeargin
00:23:35

With the recent reversal of Roe, the pro-life movement has gained new momentum. Ultrasound technology, science and the Bible agree: life begins at conception. This is not stopping states like California from attempting to become “sanctuary” states for abortion as the fight for life heats up. So what is the future of the pro-life movement? How important is it that we engage in the conversation to defend our unborn? Today I’m joined by pro-life influencer Christine Yeargin for a thought-provoking conversation that starts with a wonderful fact: we are winning the argument for life. SHOW NOTES

“Did God Really Say?” Has God’s View on Homosexuality Changed? | What Does God Say About Large Families? | Charter Schools v Homeschooling
00:21:21

Today I’m tackling questions from listeners! A “pastor” in Florida is teaching that homosexuality is “holy” and that God holds it in high regard. Sadly, this kind of teaching is growing in the modern progressive church. The intended effect of so-called “revisionist gay theology” is to disengage the church from the wider cultural debate about homosexuality by redefining it as God-ordained and morally permissible. And just like the serpent’s temptation to Eve in the Garden, leaders in the “gay-Christian” movement are tempting us with the question: “Did God really say…that homosexuality is a sin?” SHOW NOTES

How Modern Feminism is Making Men AND Women Miserable
00:24:11

Today’s feminist movement bears little to no resemblance to the movement that was rallying women together for basic human rights: the right to vote, to own a business for example. Many women today have bought into the lie that feminism will empower and free them. The so-called “Women’s March” is an angry group of women who scream their abortions, and deny the God-given roles of men and women. Its attempt to dismantle the family unit will bring neither power nor freedom. Men and women are different by design. Let’s celebrate our differences and stop trying to pretend they don’t exist.

The Truth About Public School Starts Here: Education is Not Neutral
00:24:11

Recently, Babylon Bee put out a satirical headline that struck a little to close to home for many people when it showed a picture of a yellow school bus dropping kids off and declared, “Thousands of Kindergarteners Dropped off Across the Nation for First Day of Grooming.” Before you get offended, consider this: Parents are putting their kids on these buses, and sending them to places that are teaching them that their gender is malleable, that God doesn’t exist, and that the earth is on a collision course thanks to “climate change.“ Government schools are teaching false history, creating social activists and kids who don’t know how blessed they are to live in America. Education is not neutral! Listen in as I talk about this very important topic. SHOW NOTES

Secrets to Living a Joy-Filled Life
00:21:50

Have you ever struggled through seasons of disappointment, distress or discouragement? My hunch is that, like me and so many others, you have. The apostle Paul was no stranger to suffering and yet, he often spoke of living in the “fullness of joy.” Corrie Ten Boom, who suffered under the Nazis and lost most of her family in the holocaust said, “Joy is not a product of your circumstances. It is the unmistakable sign of the presence of God.” Today, I’ll be sharing some thoughts on why I Christians should be known as people of joy… no matter what they are facing. Strength is found in the joy of the Lord! SHOW NOTES

Break Free from Drama: Finding Peace in the Midst of Panic with Dr Mark Sherwood
00:22:44

In our 24/7 news cycle, it’s easy to become addicted to drama. The headlines scream the next crisis and culture reacts accordingly. New day, new disease. New day, new directive. The result? Many of us, and consequently our children, are addicted to adrenaline and its cousin, cortisol—and it’s not good for us. The Bible teaches us that fear is a spirit and that it is not from God. So what to do? How can we live free from fear and walk in newness of life in Christ? How can we teach our children what it looks like to walk in peace regardless of what’s happening around us?

Christian Alternatives to Yoga with Jessica Smith
00:34:14

Is yoga harmless? Is it just another form of exercise, or is the strong spiritual component of yoga something Christians should be wary of? Yoga means "to yoke" or to open oneself up and invite in the spirit of yoga. Yoga sutras are a basically a guidebook for divination, which God expressly prohibits in the Bible. Listen in as Jessica Smith makes a strong case for how the poses alone invite spiritual forces into our lives that have no place in the lives of Christ followers. The Bible says, "You shall have no other God's before Me." Let's talk about alternatives to yoga today! SHOW NOTES

Christianity and Yoga: Do They Mix? with Jessica Smith
00:34:41

Should Christianity mix with yoga? Are yoga poses benign if we do them but don't engage in the spiritual practice behind them? This is the question I'm asking my guest, Jessica Smith, who taught yoga for many years. Jessica has a unique perspective and a solid biblical stance on this modern controversy. Yoga is one of the six orthodox schools of Hindu philosophical traditions, yet many Christians today are practicing yoga with the belief that yoga's deep ties to Hinduism and Buddhism can be avoided. I will confess, I thought the same thing—but not any longer. Jessica challenged me and opened my eyes to the truth about this topic. Listen in. I pray your heart is blessed and encouraged as you strive to know God in a deeper way and bring Him honor in everything you do. SHOW NOTES

If you knew that there was a deadly virus at your local school, would you send your child there?

Sadly, many parents are still turning a blind eye to the real pandemic - the spiritual and moral crisis that’s taking our youth in record numbers is happening in the public schools. The battle is real—and our kids should never be on the front lines. My hunch is that you wouldn’t. The time for excuses is over. The schools are no longer safe places for our kids.

Life is Hard… But God is Good with Harry Alicea
00:29:13

Harry Alicea was born in the late 80’s to a drug addicted mother. As a result, he was also born addicted to cocaine and suffered from a cleft palate. At two years old, he went into the foster care system. He was never adopted. Today, Harry shares his story of abuse and abandonment, and ultimately, healing, because of Christ. In a culture that encourages victimhood, Harry experienced victory. Today, he is a father, a business owner and a devoted husband. He reminds us that we don’t need to be victims of our circumstances. We can rise above them and bring the hope and healing of Christ to a new generation. SHOW NOTES

The Largest Online Back to School Prayer Gathering with Donna Martin

Prayer is not our last resort, it is a powerful offensive strategy. We do not have to wait until tragedy strikes before we send our “thoughts and prayers.” Let’s raise a prayer shield in this Nation to COVER our children before they head back to school. It won’t be political parties, politicians, or pretty social media posts that shift the spiritual atmosphere of the nation; it will be praying mamas from every corner, of each state, praying for the Lord to rend the heavens and come down on behalf of our children!  Today, Donna Martin, founder of GirlTruth.org, joins me to talk about the fight for our children and why prayer must be our first line of defense.

God has created us for relationship with other people, and he modeled perfect love for us, also. Fortunately, our relationship with God is 100% secure. He never changes; His love is unconditional and constant. There’s nothing we can do that will make Him love us any more or any less. He doesn’t give up on us. People, however, aren’t like that. People change. As a result, sometimes friendships can hurt. Sometimes, they end. Today I’ll be touching on this topic in answer to a listener email. SHOW NOTES

Belief in the Inerrancy of Scripture: Does It Matter?
00:22:33

“Fake news.” We live in a time that tends toward believing that truth is subjective, and that people can have “their truth” instead of asking, like Pilate, “What is truth?” Sadly, some Christians today seem to be comfortable with the false notion that the Bible is like any other book, and that it, too, contains errors. This is an alarming belief, because it asserts that some of the Bible is true, and some is not. Further, the notion that “There is truth, but we cannot know it” is driving people away from the concept of absolute truth, and that’s a dangerous place for Christians to be. Why? Because truth matters. God’s Word claims to be truth, in keeping with the character and omniscient nature of God. In an age of “fake news,” perhaps, we have simply gotten used to being lied to. However, the Bible stands alone without error. This essential doctrine is a cornerstone of the Christian faith. Inerrancy deserves high regard among evangelicals and has rightly earned the status of being essential to the Christian Faith. SHOW NOTES

What Does the Bible Say About Permanent Birth Control
00:25:52

An anonymous listener is struggling in her marriage because of a disagreement over permanent birth control. While there are no direct and easy answers to this issue, one thing is certain: God cares about children. He says they are “a blessing.” There are equally committed Christians with strong opinions on both sides of the issue, but the fact remains that the Bible does not directly address all of the moral and spiritual implications of many modern medical procedures such as vasectomy and tubal ligation. Today, I’ll be talking about what matters most, starting with protecting unity inside of marriage, especially in issues regarding children. SHOW NOTES

Straight Pride? What God says About Pride
00:22:46

This is a very confusing time to shepherd children. Every day, I interact with parents who are struggling to navigate the turbulent waters of a culture in spiritual crisis. In five minutes on social media, you’re likely to see articles sowing seeds of confusion and doubt on anything related to Christian values. No time is this more prevalent than the month of June, which has been set aside to celebrate what God says will bring suffering and sorrow. But is the answer to “gay pride” “straight pride?” God’s Word says pride that focuses on us is never pleasing to God. The Bible teaches us that Satan is a master deceiver. From the time of Eve, the devil has been delighting in misleading human beings. Turns out that like Eve, we are easily deceived. In every generation, there are false teachers whom Satan uses to sow seeds of confusion and draw us away from the truth. Shepherding children in the midst of this can make us fearful of our sons and daughters being led astray. SHOW NOTES

Have you ever had a really bad moment? A moment when you let yourself down and others who depended on you? A moment when you were not your best self? A moment that would embarrass you if others knew? Even as I type these words, I am convicted by those moments in my life. Peter had a moment like that in Luke 22. Some might say Peter was the brash disciple; he rushed in with answers and jumped out of a boat only to take his eyes off Jesus and begin to sink. Peter pledged with great boldness that he was ready to go anywhere with his friend and mentor, Jesus, even to death. But in Luke 22, Peter denied not once, but three times that he even knew Jesus. Why? In part, because of fear.

Value Nothing More Than Truth with Rod Dreher
00:24:13

Big Tech banning conservative voices. Ordinary Americans are afraid of sharing their point-of-view because they are afraid of losing their job or tenure. Totalitarianism is casting a dark shadow over the west and we have a moment to recognize it and prepare for it. Solzhenitsyn said “We are not called upon to step out onto the square and shout out the truth, to say out loud what we think—this is scary, we are not ready, he writes, “But let us at least refuse to say what we do not think.” ***Find links and more at HeidiStJohn.com***

Infusing Life into Your Homeschool
00:18:13

Today, we are airing a favorite from the archives. When I started homeschooling in 1998, I did the only thing I knew how to do:  I set up a “real” classroom in our and ordered a million dollars worth of workbooks.  (At least it felt that way.) And we did okay … for a while. We were about six months into it when I began to notice that the “life” I had longed for was just not happening with the workbooks. In this replay, I’ll be sharing the discovery that changed the way I homeschooled.

Essential Oils 101 with Melissa Crabtree
00:29:52

Essential oils are not just oils, but they are power-packed remedies packed into tiny glass bottles. Well-known for their anti-fungal and anti-microbial qualities, essential oils can help support your body from the inside-out. The aroma of many oils helps to relieve anxiety and stress, and helps us get the sleep we need. The anti-fungal and anti-microbial nature of essential oils have been studied for generations, and show these oils effectively fight against human pathogens. Studies have observed that essential oils, when added to the impure air samples, helped inhibit the growth of airborne bacteria. So, essential oils can indeed be effective in cleaning and purifying the air. But what and how can you use essential oils to clean the air?

Yes, It’s Personal: Lessons from Nehemiah
00:20:53

Our Founding Fathers provided a framework of freedom that was based firmly upon the Christian principles they held. As a result, these men won a victory against the largest, most formidable power of the day.. with a civilian army! In the time of Nehemiah, the enemies of Israel used every trick in the book to keep Nehmiah from fulfilling God’s call on his life. A common thread that has been woven into the fabric of our freedom? The choice to take responsibility for freedom.

When You Can’t See the Outcome: The Blessing of Obedience
00:18:44

Has God ever asked you to do something that scared you? Has He ever called you to something that didn’t make sense to you in the moment?  If so, you’re not alone. Jesus understands. God asked Him to do the unthinkable: to go to the cross for you and for me—but the result of Christ’s obedience to the Father has resulted in amazing blessing for you and me. Lately I have been thinking about the blessings of obedience. Truth is, God’s blessings are found there. His blessings are not found outside His boundaries. The question is not whether or not we should obey, the question is how do we obey, even when we don’t see the outcome! If you’re struggling with grumbling or complaining as you obey, you’re missing a very important part of obedience. Listen in and find out more!

Can We Reconcile Admonishment and Unity?
00:24:39

“Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!”   Psalm 133:1 ESV

We were created to dwell in unity as believers, and the absence of that unity can be painful. Nothing has exposed us more to disunity in recent years than the rhetoric and divisiveness we see in culture right right. When division comes between close friends and family, it can be heartbreaking. Does this mean that we overlook false teaching or unsound doctrine in the name of getting along? Of course not.

Paul wrote extensively about the importance of unity in the book of Ephesians. But he also warned the elders of the Ephesian church when he spoke to them in person:

“I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. Therefore, be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish everyone with tears.” Acts 20:29-31

Can we reconcile admonishment and unity? The Bible teaches a resounding “yes!”

Called and Gifted for Such a Time as This... Yes, You Are
00:24:06

“I’m leaving.” That’s what my friend said to me some months ago as she surveyed the political and spiritual landscape here in the pacific northwest. “You have the gift of fighting. I do not.”  It was like a hammer to my heart. Why would anyone leave the fighting to someone else? Don’t we all have a part to play? Why are we running?

The questions kept coming.

My heart has been heavy lately over the number of people who I see fleeing instead of fighting. And while I realize that God calls us all to different things—I have come to question this exodus off the Battlefield. God has gifted us all, for such a time as this.

“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. 5 There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. 6 God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.7 A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.” 1 Cor 12:4-7

Blessings and Boundaries | With Guest Berkeley Simmons
00:32:15

We're just like the ancient Israelites, aren’t we? Think about it: according to the Bible, why did nations fall? Because they turned away from God. That's what's happening in in the United States right now. It's certainly what's happening in Europe. Today we’ll look at 1 Corinthians 10 and discuss the huge issues of their time. For example, they were ah deep into sexual sin. It was inside the church also! Today, like in the days of the Apostle Paul, the church has either largely ignored or offered unsound biblical counsel.

Though the Israelites had the covenant blessings and were miraculously delivered and sustained as we have been here in America,  most of them died in the wilderness because of disobedience and unbelief.  If we want God’s blessing, we better pay attention to His boundaries.

Don’t Let a Lie Be Our Legacy: Four Ways You Can Reflect The Truth

In the ancient writings of Ezra, the scribe, we read: "Ezra had determined to study and obey the Law of the LORD and to teach those decrees and regulations to the people of Israel" (Ezra 7:10 NLT).In the New Testament, the theme continued. Paul’s words to the church in Colossae continue to resound in today’s skeptical culture: “See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ” (Col. 2:8).  So what’s a Christian to do? It’s clear: speak and teach the truth. Turtle Twins | Visit MyPillow | Resource Center Info | Find the show notes here

Ominous Overtones: the Reichstag Fire and January 6th with Rick Green
00:30:17

On February 27 1933, as Hitler’s campaign moved into its final, frantic days, the Reichstag, the German Parliament building, was set on fire and burnt down. An atmosphere of panic and terror followed the event. This continued when a young Dutch communist, Van der Lubbe was arrested for the crime. Though the event had been wildly exaggerated, the Nazi Party used the atmosphere of panic to their advantage, using it to sway political sentiment towards their movement. This hysteria helped to turn the public against the communists, one of the Nazis main opponents, and 4000 people were imprisoned.

On the 28 February 1933, President Hindenburg signed the Emergency Decree for the Protection of the German People. This decree suspended the democratic aspects of the Weimar Republic and declared a state of emergency. This decree gave the Nazis a legal basis for the persecution and oppression of any opponents, who were be framed as traitors to the republic. People could be imprisoned for any or no reason.

The decree also removed basic personal freedoms, such as the freedom of speech, the right to own property, and the right to trial before imprisonment.

Today, we see the same thing happening from the left as it relates to the “insurrection” of January 6th. Join Rick Green as we discuss the frightening similarities between the 1930’s and 2022.

On the other hand, God tells His people to “be strong and courageous. This is a command, not a suggestion. You might wonder how could God expect us not to be afraid—and the answer is both simple and profound: it is because He promises to strengthen us and be with us. It’s His strength that helps us not to be afraid, not ours, and it’s available to every Believer!

Mark Sherwood is Naturopathic Doctor with  a full-time wellness-based medical practice in Tulsa, OK called the Functional Medical Institute. He recently announced a run for Governor there as well.

Truth On Trial
00:24:45

Ask anyone today, "What is truth?" and you’re bound to get some strange replies. Try it on a university campus and the replies become even more bizarre, even confrontational. When Oprah Winfrey began saying that she was pursuing “her truth”, the culture paid attention, but the consequences of seeing truth as subjective have cost us dearly. Today, we’ll go back to the starting point to answer the question: What is truth?

New Year’s Eve 2021
00:25:31

Gratitude. It seems not to come easily to most of us—and let’s be honest, 2021 was not the best year for a lot of people. So where do we go from here? As I reflect on a difficult year, I am reminded of God’s call to thankfulness. Today I am reflecting on how pride has turned to hubris in the nation and how in contrast, humble service and gratitude can change our attitudes and our trajectory.

Politicians Should Be Servants, Not Celebrities

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.” Philippians 2:3 Recently, I have noticed a trend in American politics: we have elevated our “public servants” to celebrity status. The founding fathers would be horrified by this, and we should be, too.

Permanently Polarized: The Need for Unity in America
00:22:12

Division, separation, and polarization. It’s reaching incredible heights right now. I see it everywhere and the Bible warns us about it. The question is — are we listening? Division weakens us by making us collectively ineffective in facing the complex challenges in life. Division injures us as a nation by undermining our ability to embrace shared values, and separation will kill us by driving more and more people into isolation—on the other side of the great political and spiritual divide. Jesus spoke against this. And so should we. Look for leaders who will unite, not divide. The hour is late—there is work to be done!

In the Midst of Darkness: Hope with Pastor Phil Hopper
00:22:44

Karl Marx had a dream—and his “dream” resulted in the deaths of untold numbers of people around the globe. His dream? To implement a fully secularized government and rid the world of the “opioid” of religion. He wanted to see atheism in the seat of government. Secularized nations worship the government, and nowhere is that more clearly seen right now than in the United States. We are giving more and more of our God-given rights to government and as Christians have removed themselves from government, we see the rise of Marxism right along with it. We are living in a post-Christian era. Indeed, we are, in many respects, back to the days of the early church. These are exciting times for committed Christ followers, and today, Phil Hopper joins me to bring much needed clarity and hope. As we see a false church emerging… the real church is growing stronger by the day.

Unexpected: God’s Ways Are Not Our Ways… They’re Better | PART TWO
00:23:17

Have you ever thought about what it must have been like to be Mary?  In Scripture, we’re allowed a glimpse into Mary’s heart when she received the most unexpected news in history. When Gabriel appeared to Mary to tell her of what would soon happen, her response  (after she asks one quick question) is that of submission, trust, and faith.  She said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” (Luke 1:38 ESV).

I don’t know about you, but that wouldn’t have been my initial response.  This pregnancy had the great potential to ruin her reputation, her impending marriage, and her life as she knew it.  She could lose everything she ever knew.

I often wonder if the reason God chose Mary was because her heart was postured toward His heart. She knew that no matter what unexpected thing might happen in her life…

His Ways are Not Our Ways… They’re Better

Many people today are talking about Marxism in glowing terms; it’s not hard to find a college student sporting a Che Guevara t-shirt.  Very few take Marxism seriously as an idea. That’s a mistake. Marxism is here, and make no mistake—it is playing for keeps. Marxism is a philosophy but when it is lived out—communism is the result. A Marxist is a person who embraces the philosophy of Karl Marx; a Communist is a person who applies Marx’s ideas to the government and the economy.

Pull Your Kids OUT of Public School: A Christian Response to an Education System in Crisis with Alex Newman
00:21:09

Public education is ground zero for the spiritual and emotional pandemic that is killing the hearts and minds of our children today. Jesus said you are either for Him or against Him—and the education of our children puts what we believe on full display. There is no time to lose. Christian parents have heard the case against the government school system. The answer is not to reform the schools, it’s to start a new era of education—and Covid is presenting an incredible opportunity to do just that. **Go to HeidiStJohn.com/Podcasts for links and more**

BONUS: The lie of transgenderism is spreading like a cancer in our military thanks to spineless leaders who know it’s a lie but would rather have their pensions than tell the truth.

Fear. It’s everywhere. The brave men and women who fought for our freedom would not recognize this generation. Fear is our kryptonite. It keeps us in our homes when we’re afraid of what we cannot see and keeps us from speaking truth in the face of lies because we fear the response of men. Though fear has had a crippling effect on the world in the past 15 months, God is still calling His people to the front lines. The question is not “what will the outcome be,” but rather, “what does God want me to do?” Are we willing to obey no matter the cost? **Find more at HeidiStJohn.com**
