Faith, family, and freedom are fast disappearing from France, Sweden, and Scotland. Christian families are very few and far between. Some have had to escape the tyranny of these countries. France’s president Macron was clear on the point, in advocating the abolishment of home education. In his words, “School is the mold of the republic.  This is what ensures that we protect our children completely from religion. This program includes: 1.

Some surveys say 50-60% of pastors are getting into pornography. If pastors and elders are called to be examples to the flock, how is this going to work out for the churches? Do presbyteries and church elderships ask their pastors about their porn habits? Shall churches implement a Zero Tolerance policy for leadership? But would a 'Zero Tolerance Policy' result in increasingly compromised transparency? Kevin Swanson interviews Pastor Phil Kayser on these thorny problems relating to pornography in church leadership. This program includes: 1. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (Trump: “God alone prevented the unthinkable”; Chinese officials tell pastors to preach socialist sermons; Trump picks Ohio Senator J.D.

What is the virtuous woman spoken of in Proverbs 31? Modesty. Domesticity. Prudence. Contentment. These aren't words we hear much anymore in the common vernacular, so here in this interview with Nancy Wilson we limp up to explain it once more.

You will appreciate the graciousness, the humility, and the matter of fact, biblical language without the sappy sentimentality in this exchange. This program includes: 1.

Right now, there is a 50% vacancy in the chaplain positions in the Oregon Air National Guard. Sadly, it’s indicative of the absence of chaplains nationwide.  According to Brigadier General David Unruh​, a regular listener to Generations Radio and the commander of 2,400 Airmen in Oregon, he sees a great opportunity for ministry. He hopes Generations listeners who are pastors will prayerfully consider serving one weekend per month in the Oregon National Guard -- or the National Guard of their home state -- as a chaplain.  After listening to the July 4th podcast about The Black Robed Regiment​ of 18th century pastors who boldly challenged the men in their church to fight for American independence, he emailed me, Adam McManus​, and shared that he has passed out dozens of copies of Pastor Jonas Clark​’s sermon  following the Battle of Lexington​ to Christian officers. On May 2, 1778, General George Washington​ issued a unique order for the Continental Army at Valley Forge​. It read, “The Commander-in-Chief directs that divine services be performed every Sunday at 11 o’clock on each brigade which has chaplains. While we are duly performing the duty of good soldiers, we are not to be inattentive to the highest duties of religion.”  Brigadier General Unruh said, “The role of ministers serving as military chaplains is older than our nation and is as foundational as any other dearly-held principle of liberty upon which our nation was founded. I personally believe all the other principles of liberty rest on Gospel freedom.” He added, “I am surprised that conservative and reformed Christians do not understand that the Dominion Mandate in Genesis and the Great Commission in Matthew necessarily imply risk and sacrifice.” He cited great historical role models who were willing to take a stand in their day like chaplains should take a stand for Christ today. -- Athinasius​​​ – who boldly spoke out against the heresy of Arianism​, the view that Jesus was not divine as taught by Arius​. Athinasius declared, “If the world is against the truth, then I will be against the world.”   -- John Knox​, the Scottish reformer, who stood for Biblical truth, famously said, “The man who stands with God is always in the majority.” Brigadier General Unruh said, “Knox understood the nature of pastoral mathematics.” -- The Apostle Paul​ who boldly preached the Gospel to Agrippa (Acts 25:13-26:32​) and to Caesar. Rear Admiral Gregory Todd, chief of Navy chaplains, urged the church to help find chaplain candidates​. He said, “The bulk of our ‘flock’ are 18- to 25-year-olds, often faced with adult challenges for the first time in their lives. It involves seeing people through some of their most joyful moments to their most personally challenging.” The soldiers most connected to their faith “are 50%-80% less likely to die by suicide, 60% less likely to suffer depression, 80% less likely to suffer addiction, and 70% less likely to participate in risky behaviors.” So, your work as a chaplain could literally save lives and ensure that Airmen stay on the straight and narrow. If you are younger than the age of 42, have your MDiv or at least 72 hours of graduate work toward a Master of Divinity, can spare one weekend a month which would compensate you $1,200/month, then visit the website www.airforce.com/chaplain​, call 240-612-7753, or email ngb.hc.hc.chaplain.corps.org@us.af.mil​  To reach Brigadier General David Unruh directly, email david.unruh.4@us.af.mil​  This program includes: 1. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (Tony Perkins not pleased with new GOP Platform, Military chaplains needed ASAP, Church of England endorses sexual perversion​) 2.

Ironically, on the same day that New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg dropped charges against many of the antisemitic protestors who ransacked Columbia University, June 20, 2024, more than 600 Jewish and Christian participants gathered inside the Palladium Theater in New York City’s Times Square to rally against the global scourge of antisemitism. The event, organized by Chosen People Ministries​, was entitled “Oppose Antisemitism: Stop the Hate.”​ Guest host Adam McManus​ interviews Rich Flashman​, a Jewish man who trusted Jesus as his Messiah and is now the leader of the Manhattan, New York branch of Chosen People Ministries which was founded 130 years ago to bring the Gospel to the Jews. In the first half of today’s Generations Radio podcast, you’ll hear his intriguing testimony of how God used Isaiah 53 and the bold evangelistic witness of a fellow college student at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst to bring Flashman to Christ. According to the Anti Defamation League​, in the three months following the October 7th massacre in Israel when Hamas attacked, there were 3,291 U.S. antisemitic incidents. That’s a whopping 361% increase between October 8, 2023 and January 7, 2024 compared to the same time period the year before. Dr. Michael Brown, a Jewish believer in Jesus and the host of The Line of Fire radio program, spoke to the 4 Satanic reasons why Jews have been hated. Dr. Brown insisted, “The purposes of God will stand and Satan will be defeated in Yeshua’s name!” Plus, you’ll hear the powerful song by Christian musician Aaron Shust entitled “Jerusalem”​ which is based on Psalm 122. Albert Einstein declared, “If I were to remain silent, I’d be guilty of complicity.”  Here are 5 ways you can bless the Jews. 1.  Pray for the Jewish people and encourage churches to pray at a main service.2.  Speak out against local acts of antisemitism.3.  Take action through public demonstrations, rallies, lectures, and social media in support of the Jewish community.4.  Demonstrate support for Jewish students on local college campuses.5. Support Jewish friends and visit a local synagogue to let them know, “I am praying for your safety.” (make it personal) If you are an undergraduate or graduate college student, or you have a child or grandchild who is, consider attending the free Courage Conference​ at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago between August 15-18. Plus, half of your transportation costs – whether by car or plane – will be reimbursed! This program includes: 1. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (Russian bombs hit within half mile of The Worldview staff in Ukraine, Pro-lifer sentenced to 6 months in prison, Jewish man shares how he trusted Jesus as Savior​)​ 2.

Did you know that the Girl Scouts is now giving the 1.7 million girls in its program the opportunity to earn a homosexual pride patch? To qualify, the younger Girl Scouts are required to attend three God-forsaken homosexual pride events like the non-family friendly marches! And the older Girl Scouts are required to attend six homosexual pride events. Plus, their bizarre “patch” work involves creating a painting of a famous homosexual and compiling a music playlist of 12 homosexual singers. And last summer, the Girl Scouts implemented its Camp Culture Code document which requires all Girl Scouts and its leaders to use the biologically incorrect pronouns of gender-confused girls who are pretending to be boys. Guest host Adam McManus interviews Patti Garibay, founder of American Heritage Girls, a Christ-centered scouting program for girls. She discusses the 35-page e-book entitled “Raising Godly Girls Guide to Gender and Identity” which will empower parents a guide through the secular maze of gender and identity in a chaotic and confused culture. A recent report revealed that the majority of adolescents who start to question their gender identity in America are girls. And nearly 30% of Gen Z women identify as homosexual, transgender, or confused. This program includes: 1. The World View in 5 Minutes with Adam McManus (Girl Scouts pushes homosexual “pride” patch, Joe Biden’s grimace-worthy post-debate interview, Swanson heard bombs in Ukraine & asks for prayers for suffering church) 2.
