Nancy Pearcey has studied under the late great Francis Schaeffer. She’s written a bestselling book with Chuck Colson, as well as a few of her own. Her latest book is called, Love Thy Body. She notes: “Why the Call to Love Thy Body? To counter the hostility toward the human body and biological facts of life driving many of today’s headline stories. Many people absorb pre-packaged media mantras on watershed moral issues without being aware of their hurtful real-world implications.” She mentions transgenderism, homosexuality, abortion, and the hookup culture as examples. With compassion and moral clarity, she shows how God has made the body good and as Christians we are to love, not to abuse, the body. Nancy Pearcey joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss how the true biblical worldview is liberating, e.g., on human sexuality, compared to so many of the misinformed worldviews of today. www.nancypearcey.com

Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation has written a new book on the transgender issue, called, When Harry Became Sally. In an article for Heritage, Anderson writes, “some of the most frequently heard claims about sexuality and gender are not supported by scientific evidence.” Therefore, he warns: “Only a minority of children who express gender-atypical thoughts or behavior will continue to do so into adolescence or adulthood. There is no evidence that all such children should be encouraged to become transgender, much less subjected to hormone treatments or surgery.” Ryan T. Anderson joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to compassionately and firmly deal with this issue. www.heritage.org

It has been said that the most serious crime against our Holy God is corrupt and unauthorized worship. Therefore, it is vital to know what God says is true, authentic, and acceptable worship of Him. And we also need to know how God defines those who are true worshipers of Him, and those who are not.

Too many of our schools have become God-free zones. The founders never intended that (to wit, Article III of the Northwest Ordinance, 1789). A popular football coach, Joe Kennedy, was fired from his job in a Washington state high school because of saying a silent prayer at a game. The coach says, “When the school district fired me, I was devastated. I really hope that the school district will give me my job back so I can get back to doing what I love most: coaching my players.” First Liberty Institute has taken up his case. Constitutional attorney Mike Berry of First Liberty joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to talk about this on-going case and why it matters. www.firstliberty.org
