In this episode:

Tony will be joined by guests Pastor Geoff Kirkland (Christ Fellowship Bible Church, St. Louis) and Evangelist Robert Gray (Cross Country Evangelism). The conversation will focus on the trios recent open-air preaching efforts on the campuses of St. Louis Community College--Meramec and Southern Illinois University--Edwardsville.

Tragically, on both campuses the men ran into campus representatives of CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ). Both of the "campus leaders" served as examples of just how far the once-evangelistic campus ministry has fallen, from its founding by Evangelist Bill Bright. Now home with the Lord, Bright would not recognize the ministry he founded to reach college students with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Today, CRU is more a representative of American Evangelicalism than it is the Body of Christ.

On today's program, you will hear the audio of a conversation with one of the "campus leaders."

Also on the program: Tony, Rich, and Chris will answer the question from a student at Kansas State University. What do you do when the perverted pelagian, Jed Smock, comes to your campus to "preach?"
