Welcome to the podcast of the Bible Answer Man broadcast with bestselling author and CRI President Hank Hanegraaff! On the Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank answers your questions with well-reasoned answers to equip you in the essentials of the historic Christian faith and strengthen your walk with the Lord. When it comes to the essentials of Christianity, there must be unity: "In essentials, unity; nonessentials, liberty; and in all things, charity."
The Gift of Self-Government in a Liberal Democracy, and Q&A
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/20/20), Hank invites listeners to imagine for a moment an empire that is invincible in power and majesty. Ruler over the rest of the nations of the world, but not just for a few hundred years, but for the better part of a millennium. For six hundred years the city of Rome towered above the nations. The invincibility of this empire was so certain that she actually bore a moniker—eternal. And then something unthinkable happened; Alaric and his Arian hordes breached the walls and sacked the immortal city. Pagan Romans looked on in utter disbelief as statues of ancient deities were pulled down. And then Christians began to wonder if indeed the end of the world was now at hand. When the Barbarians destroyed the Roman Empire in the West, it was the Christian Church that put together a new order called Europe. It was the Church that took the lead in rule by law, the pursuit of knowledge, and the expression of culture. And that is precisely what needs to happen in the modern epoch.

The Legacy of Islam, and Q&A
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/19/20), Hank discusses the shocking beheading of a teacher in France this past weekend. Samuel Paty was giving his middle-school class a lesson about free speech as required by the French Ministry of Education’s national curriculum. The teaching—according to authorities, who interviewed him about the lesson before his death—displayed cartoons of Muhammad from Charlie Hebdo, the satirical magazine targeted in a bloody terrorist attack in 2015. French President Emmanuel Macron said that this attack bore all the hallmarks of an “Islamic terrorist attack” and the teacher had been murdered because he “taught freedom of expression.” Some have forgotten, others blithely unaware of the reality that Islam is the only significant religious system in the history of the human race with a socio-political structure of laws that mandate violence against the infidel. That this graphic global reality makes Islam a religious ideology espousing terrorism as a permanent policy rather than a temporary expedient. While certainly there are many, many peaceful and tolerant Muslims, that hardly means that Islam is a peaceful and tolerant religion. From the fall of Jerusalem to the present, the world has known jihad. Muhammad’s trail of terror is the legacy of Islam.

Transgenderism and The Role of Christians in a Liberal Democracy
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/16/20), Hank talks about what he saw last night during a town hall meeting with Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. During the town hall meeting, Biden overtly stated that he had absolutely no compunction about a young child transitioning from one gender to another. It is simply unconscionable that an 8-year-old child should be burdened with the power to decide to become transgender in the face of well-established science showing that the vast majority of children suffering from gender dysphoria quite naturally grow out of that confusion. Moreover, the damage done to a young body during such a transition attempt is irreversible. Government leaders, in concert with media icons, now create, manipulate, and disseminate ideological constructs that are driving the whole of civilization in a very dangerous direction. We may rightly thank God that we as yet live within the confines of a liberal democracy that affords us the power to hold governmental personalities accountable. A liberal democracy that allows her citizens to participate by voting.

Trodding the Path of Taqiyya, and Q&A
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/15/20), Hank brings up an article he read this week, titled “Harris’ Ties to Leading Anti-Israel Group Draws Scrutiny.” This reminded Hank of Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s address to the Million Muslim Votes Summit, an event hosted by Emgage, an organization founded and led by the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, including Emgage’s current Co-Chairperson Khurrum Wahid, a former legal advisor to the Hamas-linked radical Muslim organization Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). During his address, Biden lauds Islam as “one of the great confessional faiths” and “wish[es] we taught more in our schools about the Islamic faith.” As noted in the article, Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris seems enamored with Islam as well. In fact, she has gone out of her way to laud Islam, most notably CAIR, writing in a personal letter to the organization, “Please accept my gratitude and admiration for your tireless work to promote peace, justice, and mutual understanding.” For Harris to say that CAIR promotes “peace, justice, and mutual understanding” is what is referred to in Islam as taqiyya—religious dissimulation. Although CAIR is notorious for its practice of taqiyya, many U.S. politicians like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Ilhan Omar, and Rashida Talib, have no problem aligning with a group that supports provocative tactics and the terrorism that flow from such tactics. If there is a glimmer of optimism in all of this, it is the hopeful possibility that there may be millions of devout Muslims who could not so much as imagine trodding the path of Taqiyya. In concert with multitudes of non-Muslims, devotees likely regard the religious dissimilation tactics of Biden, Harris, and CAIR to be cringeworthy at best.
