    The Bible On Trial

    in Religion

    The Bible On Trial tests the beliefs of Christianity against the words and teachings of Jesus Christ, that He personally gave to His own disciples while He was here on earth. This program DOES NOT test God; we only test those that claim to have been sent FROM God, "that call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false." (Rev. 2:2).


    This is a very challenging concept, and will take courage and discipline to carry out, but in the end, those that stick to it WILL find Truth.

    The Druth About... Jury Nullification

    in Politics

    On this week's episode, Dru will discuss the concept of Jury Nullification and what it means to Americans. 


    Jury Nullification is the process by which a jury finds a defendant not guilty of a crime which he is clearly guilty of due to their dislike of the law violated or because of exigent circumstances surrounding the case. 


    We are going to examine why this is important to American society and how it can be used to ensure Freedom in the United States. 


    Join us at 9:00 Eastern / 6:00 Pacific time and be part of the discussion.  Listeners can call into the show at (347) 857-4397 with questions or comments.
