Thursday, May 3, 2018 is the National Day of Prayer (NDP). The NDP website states: “In 1952, President Truman made the National Day of Prayer an annual observance, stating: ‘In times of national crisis when we are striving to strengthen the foundations of peace…we stand in special need of Divine support.’…. In April of 1970, President Richard Nixon had the nation observe a Day of Prayer for Apollo 13 astronauts. On May 5, 1988, President Reagan made the National Day of Prayer the first Thursday in May, saying: “Americans in every generation have turned to their Maker in prayer…We have acknowledged…our dependence on Almighty God.” Pastor Dion Elmore is the Vice President and Communications Director of the NDP. Dion Elmore joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the National Day of Prayer. www.nationaldayofprayer.org

Our modern culture is embroiled in all kinds of controversies when it comes to gender-specific definitions and roles for males and females.  Unfortunately, these controversies have stormed into the modern church as well.  For example, many people can’t understand why women can’t be pastors and preachers like men? Are you one of those people? If so, then you probably also believe that we have the right to culturally reinterpret the Bible to fit our ever-evolving and rapidly changing modern culture.  But do we as humans actually have the right to change and reinterpret God’s Holy and Authoritative Word of Truth? Or should we humbly and obediently submit to God’s Divine Design for males and females in the family and the church?

President Trump has received some flak lately for calling for tariffs against China because of what he says is their unfair-to-us trade practices. Matt Spalding is a Constitutional scholar and Hillsdale College leader in its Washington, D. C. branch. Formerly with the Heritage Foundation, Matt Spalding edited the massive “The Heritage Guide to the Constitution.” Matt Spalding joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss tariffs and the Constitution. www.hillsdale.edu

Terry Schilling is the executive director at American Principles Project. He was the moderator of a controversial panel discussion at the 2018 CPAC on the subject of “social media censorship.” Schilling writes, “America prides itself on the free exchange of ideas — indeed, the freedom of speech is fundamental to who we are. But social justice activists on the Left reject this. They want to silence opposing viewpoints, and now, with full control of Silicon Valley, they’ve found a way to realize their fascist dystopia. Blatant political censorship of one side is as anti-American as it gets.” Terry Schilling joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss an example of YouTube and Twitter censorship involving an incident involving conservative comedian Steven Crowder. www.americanprinciplesproject.org
