The Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against North Carolina’s governor over the state’s law regarding bathroom access. The Justice Department said the law, which requires people to use the bathroom according to their biological gender, “stigmatizes and singles out transgender employees, results in their isolation and exclusion, and perpetuates a sense that they are not worthy of equal treatment and respect.” There have already been incidents of abuse of the new laws in other states that allow people to use bathrooms according to their “gender identity.” These are the results of a society that has fully embraced moral relativism. On today’s program, Stephen Flurry explains what led up to the moral confusion we now see in the United States today.
In our busy and confusing world, the truth is hard to come by. It takes work to dig it out from beneath all the noise and clutter of mainstream stories. On today’s show, Stephen Flurry discusses the one and only source that must be used to discern the truth.
“On the largest and smallest questions alike, the voice in which America speaks to the world is that of Ben Rhodes,” wrote the New York Times in a recent piece titled “The Aspiring Novelist Who Became Obama’s Foreign-Policy Guru.” This is the man behind the president’s speeches, and he is largely responsible for shaping the nation’s foreign policy. Rhodes is perhaps one of Obama’s most trusted advisers—they share the same worldview. Surprisingly though, Rhodes has almost no experience in foreign policy. His master’s degree is in creative writing. And that is the skill he and the president use most—shaping policy that sounds appealing but is actually misleading and not grounded in reality. On today’s show, Stephen Flurry digs into the deceptive foreign policy of the Obama administration.
“Make America great again” has been a popular slogan used during this year’s election season in the United States. Most use that slogan with the future in mind—thinking what they can do to make America great. However, very few people stop to ask: What made America great in the first place? The Bible is not silent on this subject. It actually tells the story of America’s ancestry—and its modern prophetic identity. As Herbert W. Armstrong wrote in The United States and Britain in Prophecy, this is the most fascinating and interesting story ever told! On today’s show, Stephen Flurry explains the source of America’s greatness.
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton: These are the two candidates Americans will have to choose from when they go to vote for their president this fall. The choice is indicative of the sad state America is entering into. Both candidates and their followers think they are the solution that will make America great. In Dennis Prager’s latest article, he wrote that Trump and Clinton “are two reasons—of many, unfortunately—why, other than the first years of the Civil War, when the survival of the United States as one country was in jeopardy, there has never been a darker time in American history.” On today’s show, Stephen Flurry explains why America is falling so quickly and what it will take for America to really be great again.
Western society views old age as a time to give up on learning new things. True Christians must be careful to avoid letting that myth affect them. There is never a time to stop growing spiritually. Christ said we must endure to the end and keep growing—especially late in life. With age, it can seem more appealing to take the easy road and get lazy when it comes to developing new habits. How can seniors avoid falling into this slump? What is the key to promoting continual growth? On today’s show, Stephen Flurry provides practical advice for seniors to help them continue growing during the later years.
A socialist revolution is sweeping America’s young people. Democratic party candidate Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician among America’s young people. But do America’s college students really understand what socialism is? Can they even define it? Socialism is leading to the economic breakdown of America just as it has in Puerto Rico because it is contrary to God’s economic laws. Listen to the latest edition of the Trumpet Daily Radio Show to learn why God is not a socialist—or a capitalist.
Russia, China and others are developing high-tech weapons, against which the United States currently has no defense. Meanwhile America has spent decades encouraging Europe to create a superstate—a power that will soon prove a major rival to the U.S. On today’s program, Trumpet staff writer Richard Palmer discusses the dangerous blind spot America has went it comes to judging potential threats.
Many people are aware of the Passover, although few truly understand the meaning of that day and what it pictures. An even smaller number of people are aware of the days that come after the Passover: the Days of Unleavened Bread. These days represent the next step in God’s plan of salvation for mankind—coming out of sin. God makes His plan easy for us to see in His holy days, yet so few keep them today. On today’s show, Stephen Flurry explains the meaning of the Days of Unleavened Bread.
