Giving Thanks – 2021
Psalm 92-1 says, -It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto thy name, O Most High.---This was the emphasis of this broadcast as it gave listeners the opportunity to call and give God thanks.--Before that, however, Jim read a segment from the November-December 2019 newsletter from Love Worth Finding Ministries that was headed up by the late Dr. Adrian Rogers. It featured a segment from Dr. Rogers mentioning how we should give thanks in the Spirit, when you should be thankful, what you should be thankful for, how it's possible to thank God for all things, and the 4 levels of life, the highest of which is the secret of joy.--Find out what that highest level is and then get ready to hear from your fellow listeners who expressed their thanks to God by answering the following question- Today I'm thanking God for...--From all of us at VCY America, have a blessed Thanksgiving-
Unlawful COVID Shot Mandates Under Fire
In a time of great need, critical care workers, public safety personnel, federal employees, civilian contractors, border patrol agents, military personnel, and others have one thing in common. They stand to lose benefits, jobs and careers by not complying with COVID vaccine mandates while at the same time, religious exemptions for many have been tossed aside. --Appearing once again to bring listeners an update on this situation, Crosstalk welcomed Mat Staver. Mat is the founder - chairman of Liberty Counsel.--Mat is on the front lines of this battle and as such, he sees it as an all-out assault against students, employees, religious employers, as well as men and women in the military. Now this also includes those seeking medical treatment as Mat reported there are people being removed from kidney transplant lists if they don't get the vaccines, and it doesn't matter whether they're a donor or a recipient.--Mat explained that these vaccines cannot be mandatory while under the category of emergency use authorization -EUA-. Since they're under this authorization and because there's no long-term data providing information concerning safety or effectiveness, then federal law says they can't be mandated. Every person then has the option to accept or reject the shot with no consequences.--Also, there's only one FDA approved COVID shot. That's BioNTech's Comirnaty shot. However, the FDA, the CDC, the National Institutes of Health, and even Pfizer all have said it's not available. In fact, Pfizer has a statement reprinted on the CDC and NIH websites saying it's not available and they don't intent to produce it for months while the EUA is still on the market.
Tragedy Strikes Waukesha, WI Christmas Parade
Tragedy struck the city of Waukesha, Wisconsin, yesterday. It was a time when families took a break from the stresses of our time and lined the downtown route for the city's annual Christmas parade. Children were enthusiastically receiving candy being tossed to them, while others were sipping coffee or hot chocolate during the windy, brisk afternoon.--Jim provided audio from Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly who spoke to the media last evening along with audio from Chief of the Waukesha Police Department, Daniel Thompson. Thompson reported that at 4-39pm, a red SUV drove through a series of barricades and into the parade route resulting in 5 deaths and more than 40 people who suffered injuries. --Dan Reehoff, pastor of Dayspring Baptist Church in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, was an eye witness to this tragedy and had members of his family and church there as well. During the first quarter hour he presented listeners with his account of the incident. Later he described how he and his wife were able to help both on the scene and at Waukesha Memorial Hospital, praying and sharing Gospel literature with individuals in the emergency room waiting area. --During the second half hour, discussion moved to the issue of the brevity of life, how God views sin, His solution to the sin problem, and listeners capped off the broadcast with their comments.
