On many occasions, individuals will do something so that they remember a significant life event. The Israelites gathered stones as they crossed the Jordan River. With the stones, they built a monument so that when future generations asked what the stones meant, they would hear of how God led them through and provided for them. We also put up monuments, not to worship, but to remember individuals or events that have impacted our nation in a significant way. Unfortunately, it’s these statues and monuments that are under attack. Why is this happening?
Jim began this edition of Crosstalk with special information from the Friends of Israel. In light of the recent violence that’s taken place against Israel and also the increasing antisemitism taking place here is the U.S., FOI is calling on Christians nationwide to show their support for Israel and the Jewish people. FOI is requesting that Christians light a candle in their window at sundown on the first night of Hanukkah, December 7th, and to keep it there through sundown on December 15th.
From Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to the far corners of the globe, Crosstalk brings news items to listeners each Friday to keep you informed. Here’s a sample of what was shared this week:
–Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Israel seemingly in part to push for an extension of the Israel/Hamas cease-fire.
When you consider the events that are unfolding around the world and you add to that matters going on within the U.S., you must come away wondering how so much chaos can be unfolding at one time. Is this just a big coincidence or is there a concerted effort taking place to bring the U.S. to its knees, allow control from another source and therefore surrender everyone to global governance? If so, who’s behind it?

It’s been happening issue by issue, with the complicity of both parties: The fundamental ideals of the nation, including our faith and freedom, are being crushed for the benefit of powerful elites. Using everything from Big Tech to Big Government, these power brokers are silencing the voices of dissent, canceling those who refuse to fall in line, and pitting the masses against one another. Universities are churning out so-called leaders who refuse to learn from past mistakes, but are instead intent on repeating them.
Have you ever taken a look at our society and wondered how we got to this point? How did we drift so far off course morally? There’s the LGBTQ+ onslaught, abortion, drug abuse, lawlessness, a collapsing economy, a highly contentious political system and churches abandoning doctrine to gain popularity and to be more “welcoming.”
In part 2 of this special edition of Crosstalk, William began by explaining how you want to be involved in government so that you can have a nation where our children can have a personal experience with Jesus. So if you don’t get involved, whatever non-believers are pushing in schools, that silence equals consent.
