According to drugfree.org, twenty-three million Americans are currently addicted to alcohol and/or other drugs.  This is a shocking and sad statistic. But what’s worse is that only one in 10 addicts (2.6 million) receive the treatment they need. This results in a treatment gap of more than 20 million Americans. Among reasons for not receiving treatment, is cost and lack of insurance. But perhaps a larger hidden reason is the addictive power of these drugs keeps pulling addicts back into a vicious cycle where there can seem as if there is no way out.

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin is talking to a trio of guests representing Teen Challenge. Teen Challenge is a non-profit organization that relies entirely on the generous donations, funding and volunteer efforts of both individuals and organizations throughout communities in order to offer services that help addicts escape addiction at no cost to the individual. They are on the front lines in cities across the United States helping to close the addiction treatment gap and giving hope and freedom to millions of people.

You will also hear the incredible story of Rita. She is a graduate of Teen Challenge. She will share first hand what it is like to be heavily addicted to drugs and what it is like to find a way out. If you want to learn more about Teen Challenge, check out teenchallenge.org. You can read testimonials or find information on getting treatment.

Transgenderism is becoming more and more prominent in American culture. But why? Is it a harmless life style or a destructive trend? Today on Educate For Life Kevin’s guest is Denise Schick. Denise Schick has experienced transgenderism first hand.

When Denise was 9 years her father sat down with her and explained how he wanted to become a woman. This was too much for a 9-year-old to understand and process. It caused her to become confused about her own gender and to develop a hatred toward her father.

Years later, she reconciled with her father and began to understand why he was the way he was. Now Denise runs a ministry focused on helping to heal families and individuals that have been negatively impacted by transgender family members. If you want to learn more about Denise and her ministry you can go to http://www.help4families.com

Is It Ok to Teach Islam in Public Schools – Chuck Limandri

Is It Ok to Teach Islam in Public Schools – Chuck Limandri

Play

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin is talking with attorney Chuck Limandri to shed light on an important issue that may soon affect the San Diego public school system. The district wants to implement a curriculum that would educate students about Islam. On the surface, that doesn’t sound so bad, but Chuck Limandri sees it as an attempt to indoctrinate students.

The motivation to implement this new curriculum comes from studies that seem to show that Muslim students are bullied more than any other group. But the studies are deeply flawed in many ways including the fact that they consider disagreeing with Islam as a type of bullying. CAIR, the Center for Islamic and American Relations is the group that wants to implement this curriculum. They have stated that their goal is to use San Diego as a test platform to see if they can implement it all across the U.S. in order to use the education system to transform America into an Islamic country.

Chuck Limandri has viewed the curriculum and he says it is incredibly one sided and teaches Islam uncritically to impressionable students. He says it is not the role of public schools to promote one particular view or religion over another. Furthermore, it would be promoting a belief system that is diametrically opposed to American values in many ways. According to what he has seen, this is exactly what this curriculum does. He says that if public schools would teach Islam in balance with other world religions, he would see no issue with it.

Tune in to Educate For Life to learn about this important issue and see why Chuck has legal objections to the implementation of this proposed curriculum. You don’t want to miss it.

Today on Educate For life, Kevin continues the discussion on global warming with guest Mike Oard. Kevin will drill down to the important facts. What factors are contributing to climate change? Can we do anything to mitigate climate change? Are we headed for another ice age? How many ice ages have there been? Our guest Mike Oard will help answer these important questions.

Michael has a Masters Science degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Washington and is now retired after working as a meteorologist with the US National Weather Service for 30 years. He has researched and speaks on the compelling evidence for Noah’s Flood and the Ice Age that followed, and how the incredible wooly mammoth connects to biblical history. Michael has published many papers in his field in widely recognized journals and has written An Ice Age Caused by the Genesis Flood, Ancient Ice Ages or Gigantic Submarine Landslides?, The Missoula Flood Controversy and the Genesis Flood and The Frozen Record. He is also the author of Frozen in Time, The Weather Book and Life in the Great Ice Age.

Tune in to Educate For Life to hear what science actually says about climate change. Mike will demonstrate how the current models for predicting the course of climate change are flawed. He believes that the observed effects of climate change are far less dire than computer models make it out to be.

Are Christians Being Persecuted in America? – Blaine Adamson, Jim Campbell, and David Jones

Are Christians Being Persecuted in America? – Blaine Adamson, Jim Campbell, and David Jones

Play

Imagine if you or someone you know lost their job or business because of their point of view. Imagine if they were being pressured to endorse a view they disagreed with and they got fired because they refused to cave. This is exactly what happened to our guests Blaine Adamson and David Jones. Their religious freedom has been challenged.

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin talks to two people who have been targeted because of their beliefs on one issue. Blaine Adamson is a printer in Kentucky who was sued for declining to print shirts endorsing a gay pride event. He and his attorney, Jim Campbell, will describe what happened in his case and how they argued that no one should be forced to endorse a view they don’t agree with.

You will also hear the story of David Jones. David was a teacher in the San Diego area who was fired. David was being pressured to call one of his female students as a boy. But because of his Christian beliefs, he concluded that doing so would violate his conscience. Not only was he being told he had to call a girl as a boy, he was told he basically had to lie about the issue to the girl’s parents. The school eventually fired him because he refused to deny what he knows is the truth.

Tune in to Educate For Life to hear how real people’s lives are being seriously affected simply by what their worldview is. Should people be forced to endorse messages they morally disagree with? Are these people being unloving and intolerant by not endorsing views that are contrary to their beliefs? Tune in to find out.

The Heated Debate Over Global Warming – Dr. Jake Hebert

The Heated Debate Over Global Warming – Dr. Jake Hebert

Play

Global warming is a hot topic in today’s political and scientific sphere. Some say if we don’t stabilize our climate now, we will soon see cataclysmic weather events and even cause another ice age. Others say our climate is self-regulating and will withstand any effects man may have on it.

Both sides claim to have rock solid scientific evidence to back up their theories and today on Educate For Life, Kevin will examine the evidence. He is joined by guest Dr. Jake Hebert. Dr. Jake Hebert is a physicist who has studied factors that affect the environment. He has also written a book that examines how the ice age occurred in light of a Biblical Flood.

He believes that a person’s view on this issue depends on your worldview, more specifically whether you accept an old earth view or a young earth view. According to his research, the ice age was a one-time event caused by things far beyond man’s control. He has also done important research on the Milankovitch Theory, which has fueled the current debate over climate change. He has found serious flaws in the theory that could turn the debate on its head.

Want to hear about these serious flaws and learn how climate change is explained by the Bible? Tune in to Educate For Life. If you want to read Dr. Hebert’s research for yourself, you can find it on http://icr.org, http://creation.com, and http://answersingenesis.org.
