    Episode 1755: Dems Sweep Statewide; GOP Makes Congressional Gains

    Episode 1755: Dems Sweep Statewide; GOP Makes Congressional Gains

    Thank you for joining this week’s episode of the Albany Update.

    In this week’s program we’ll offer a review of last week’s election results. We’ll look at not only the statewide races, but also what we know about the congressional races across the Empire State.

    Also, there were multiple pro-life ballot proposals in various states. Sadly, none fared well. The pro-life community needs to ask themselves why and recalibrate to our current reality before we forge ahead.

    Finally, there is some news on court challenges to Gov. Kathy Hochul’s gun control law. Churches will be particularly interested in what these rulings will mean for their security teams.

    Let’s get started.

    Episode 1752: Five Questions For The Christian To Consider This Election

    Episode 1752: Five Questions For The Christian To Consider This Election

    Today’s program is going to feel a little different than other episodes.

    The Regional Transformation Initiative is a gathering of Christian leaders in the greater Rochester region who have a common vision to use biblical principles to equip and activate people to bring transformation and reformation to their spheres of influence. Recently, the Regional Transformation Initiative invited Jason to sit down with five of its members and discuss topics pertinent to the Body of Christ, particularly at election season.

    Those leaders are Pastor David Branch of Faith Chapel (Churchville, NY), Bob Grant a local businessman and entrepreneur, Pastor Phil Harlow of Bridge Builders Ministries (Rochester, NY), Pastor Al Hauck of Friend of God Ministries and Shepherd’s Heart Christian Fellowship (Rochester, NY) and Pastor Emelio Sebastian of Jubilee Christian Church (Brockport, NY).

    Today, we’ll be sharing those discussions. Topics discussed, include:


    Should the Christian be involved with the politics of this world?
    What should the Church’s response be to the cultural chaos around us?
    How should the Christian view political parties?
    What is the Christian to do when the candidates on the ballot don’t reflect their values?
    In a pivotal moment, where societal foundations seem to be crumbling, what can the Christian do?

    Each of these discussions are also available via video on RTI's YouTube channel.

    Let’s get started.

    Episode 1751: Gov. Kathy Hochul Claims God Supports Pro-Abortion Policies

    Episode 1751: Gov. Kathy Hochul Claims God Supports Pro-Abortion Policies

    Thank you for joining this week’s episode of the Albany Update.

    This week, we were floored by the arrogance and blasphemy that flowed from Gov. Kathy Hochul’s lips when she declared that God was on her pro-abortion side.

    Next in Kathy Hochul’s New York, pro-marijuana policies led to at least one police officer’s death and a gang turf war in the Rochester region. The Flower City isn’t the only place where shootings are happening in our state, though. Last week, there was a shooting outside the home of Rep. Lee Zeldin’s Long Island home. Policy matters. The current policies are making out state less safe.

    Finally, the Election three weeks away and early voting starts October 29. Today, we’ll look at two races of interest in State Senate District 9 and State Senate District 61.

    Let’s get started.
