SORT BY Relevancy
"In God We Trust" is our national motto. It's actually a law, signed into effect in 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. How, then, is it suddenly so controversial? And why does a very vocal minority seem to wield such power? Lea Carawan, Executive Director of the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation, discusses the campaign to draw attention to this issue by placing "In God We Trust" decals on a million windows.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
SECOND ANNUAL GOSPEL SPECIAL. 2014
This is our second annual Gospel Special. Last year we had our first Gospel Special where we presented a number of different gospel styles such as Contemporary, Rock Gospel, Jazz Gospel etc... This year we will bring back some of the artists from last years show, plus we will have some artists that we have met more recently.
The whole theme is about keeping hope and inspiration alive. The Gospel means good news, and in a time where the airways are filled with destruction and fear The Gospel Special will give you an hour of relief. This country was built on the Christian faith and sometimes we need a reminder of the roots that caused the USA to be formed. Our money says in God we trust. Well this is what this show is about, Faith and trust in God. I will never be ashamed of my relationship with Christ. So as I share this music please try to hold on to the words that inspire you. Join us at a special time: 6pm EST and spread the word about the show and invite as many as you can to listen in. The phone lines will be open, so I invite you to call in and speak with your host….DrCal. 1-760-542-3931
Dr. Chaps reports on these important issues:
* A court rules that the national motto “In God We Trust” is okay on American money.
* A federal judge rules that atheists cannot force clergy members to pay extra taxes.
* A bishop says that demonic powers inside of some atheists hate the name of Jesus.
There appears to be an huge abyss in understanding the profound difference between the paradigms of stewardship versus tithing whereby one of entirely olf God and the other totally orchestrated by man. Christians are in DEBT up to their eyeballs!
Today on P2T we are going to define both principles in depth and then discuss various remedies to the disease of "entitlement" that will allow Christians to become Believers and live a fruitful and productive life in Christ Jesus.
In the end, do we really trust God more than the tithe?

The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War. Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase received many appeals from devout persons throughout the country, urging that the United States recognize the Deity on United States coins. From Treasury Department records, it appears that the first such appeal came in a letter dated November 13, 1861. It was written to Secretary Chase by Rev. M. R. Watkinson, Minister of the Gospel from Ridleyville, Pennsylvania, and read:
Dear Sir: You are about to submit your annual report to the Congress respecting the affairs of the national finances.
One fact touching our currency has hitherto been seriously overlooked. I mean the recognition of the Almighty God in some form on our coins.
You are probably a Christian. What if our Republic were not shattered beyond reconstruction? Would not the antiquaries of succeeding centuries rightly reason from our past that we were a heathen nation? What I propose is that instead of the goddess of liberty we shall have next inside the 13 stars a ring inscribed with the words PERPETUAL UNION; within the ring the allseeing eye, crowned with a halo; beneath this eye the American flag, bearing in its field stars equal to the number of the States united; in the folds of the bars the words GOD, LIBERTY, LAW.
This would make a beautiful coin, to which no possible citizen could object. This would relieve us from the ignominy of heathenism. This would place us openly under the Divine protection we have personally claimed. From my hearth I have felt our national shame in disowning God as not the least of our present national disasters.
To you first I address a subject that must be agitated.
