Many people are stunned as they look around and see all the things happening in the world today. The climate has changed, nations are rising up against each other, and false teachers are promoting all kinds of false forms of religion. What is happening? And why is all this happening? Could it be that we are experiencing clear signs about the end times?

Writer Tom Ciesielka pens: “In 2012, hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers and people of faith took to the streets in a series of rallies, presented by a coalition known as Stand Up for Religious Freedom. The rallies were protests against the HHS Mandate. Protesting the notion that people should not be forced to pay for insurance coverage for contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.” But recently, October 6, 2017, President Trump reversed this mandate. Eric Scheidler, co-director of the coalition, stated: “The First Amendment’s historic safeguard of our most basic freedoms has now been vindicated. We stood up for First Amendment and demanded that all our health care laws respect religious freedom. Today, we see the fruit of that labor as a result of hundreds of thousands of protesters who participated in Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies across the country.” Eric Scheidler rejoins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the HHS Mandate and this recent development. www.prolifeaction.org

I’ve been told that when Jerry Falwell died, they left his desk at Liberty University as they found it…and there on the desk is a copy of the big, thick book, George Washington’s Sacred Fire by Dr. Peter Lillback (president of Westminster Theological Seminary) and Jerry Newcombe. The book documents beyond a reasonable doubt that our first president was a committed 18th Anglican, and all that that entails. In an on-going series, the two authors discuss Washington and his faith. In this particular segment, the question on the table is actually beyond George Washington himself—to the other founders and the issue of slavery. Many of the founders were adamantly opposed to slavery and worked for its abolition. Obviously, others did not agree.  www.providenceforum.org

Energy, especially oil production, has a lot to do with our economy and also with geopolitics. Dr. Meghan O’Sullivan teaches at Harvard, at the Kennedy School. She has written a new book called Windfall: How the New Energy Abundance Upends Global Politics and Strengthens America’s Powers. Dr. O’Sullivan notes that access to oil has played an important role in history for the last century: “By World War II, access to oil influenced military strategy as much as any single consideration.” Meghan O’Sullivan joined Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss what she calls “the new energy landscape.” www.windfallthebook.com
