Vocal Point-Bob Knight

America was given birth for the purpose of granting religious freedom. The reason the majority of the earlier settlers sacrificed everything to come to this land was so they could worship God according to the dictates of their own conscience. Yet today, we find increasingly that there is a hostility toward things Christian in the public square. Veteran journalist and columnist Bob Knight talks about a gleam of hope in something that the Trump administration did recently in one of his columns. Bob Knight joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to talk about religious freedom at risk and our time and how the administration is trying to restore some of it. www.washingtontimes.com

Vocal Point-Jarrett Stepman

One of the great controversies in our time swirls around the notion of so-called “Fake News.” President Trump recently listed more than 10 stories that fit the category of fake news—such as the report from TIME magazine that the president had supposedly removed a bust of Martin Luther King, Jr. from the White House! Jarrett Stepman, who writes regularly for the Daily Signal (of the Heritage Foundation) wrote about fake news and how the founders anticipated something akin to it. Jarrett Stepman joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss fake news, Trump, and the founders. www.dailysignal.com

Vocal Point-Dr. Peter Lillback

George Washington, our first president (under the Constitution), declared a day of national Thanksgiving on October 3, 1789. This was at the request of the Congress, giving thanks to God that we as a free people were able to create our own government and install such a leader as Washington. Dr. Peter Lillback, founder/president of Providence Forum, is an expert on all things George Washington. Dr. Lillback and Jerry Newcombe teamed up to write the book, “George Washington’s Sacred Fire. Together Dr. Lillback and Dr. Newcombe have discussed many aspects of Washington’s faith. In this newest of their dialogues is an introductory talk on Washington’s proclamation of Thanksgiving (to God). www.providenceforum.org

Vocal Point-Dr. Peter Lillback

Dr. Peter Lillback and Dr. Jerry Newcombe wrote a book that became a bestseller—George Washington’s Sacred Fire. The 1200-page tome documents that our first president was a Christian, not a Deist. When Washington was inaugurated as our nation’s first president, his address is filled with his wonder and gratitude for God’s help in our national independence. Dr. Peter Lillback joins Jerry Newcombe for the latest in a series of discussions on Washington and faith to focus in on Washington and his First Inaugural Address.  www.providenceforum.org
