Finding Balance between fear and hope
Finding balance in the news today is not easy. Trying to balance common sense with fear is also not an easy task to accomplish in the age of coronavirus. Since the beginning of both the radio program and podcast the goal has been both to inform but also provide hope. Bob shares some of what you have suggested, and where God is leading.

The Importance of Christian Community
The events of the past 12 months have caused many people to find themselves depressed, alone, and even scared. The headlines and “death tickers” have frightened people. Closed businesses and closed churches have impacted our need for community in a negative way. Today bob welcomes back Dr. Timothy Gahles as they talk about finding community from a Christian perspective, and, finding real hope.

Will it ever be the same again?
It is becoming increasingly obvious to some people that those steering the global agenda never want the world to go back to anything we fondly remember as “normal.” So many have put all their hope in a vaccine that will magically make COVID go away. We wait for no more masking, no more social distancing, no more fear. But is that really going to happen? Bob welcomes his guest The Rev. Dr. timothy Gahles to explore that and much more.

Stupid is as Stupid does…
So many things accepted as normal today would have been rejected as total insanity just a generation ago. Is it just stupidity, or is it a kind of satanic inspired mass insanity creeping into our institutions? Bob shares his thoughts about the madness engulfing the world from politics to science, and even our faith.

Who’s your Boogeyman?
While it is true, we live in an increasingly perilous time, we also need to learn to better choose our battles. For many of us it is getting harder and harder to get accurate information on many different but important topics. In our rapidly technologically advancing time, it’s hard to keep up with all the changes. Often time it is easy to be concerned and even fall for misinformation. Today, Bob helps us to better choose our boogeyman.

Despite what many people think, there is still real hope!
The Friday and Weekend Edition of “Truth to Ponder” is both timely reminder of the times ahead, but most important, a message of hope for those that will listen. This edition completes the first 6 months of our daily broadcast and podcast, and Bob shares his thoughts about the direction the program will be heading. It will still bring truth, but most important, hope.

February 26, 2021
Fear as a motivator or as a force?
Today Bob finishes up a conversation about the things we are facing, and how to truly be able to overcome the fears, manipulations, and tribulations of our time. As scary as this past year has been, Jesus reminds us to “Fear Not,” and that advice is even more important now as we realize there are forces that want to keep you in fear and control. Our world is changing, and not always for the better. Bob completes his conversations of this week with the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as they together try to find truth in a world full of lies.
59:30
February 25, 2021
Will our lives, our jobs, our families, and even our Church ever be the same again?
It is becoming increasingly obvious that those steering the agenda never want the world to go back to anything we remember as normal. Many people believe that the entire pandemic was a dry run on how far people can be pushed without them pushing back. Others see a “New World Order” in the making, one increasingly hostile to people of faith. The “Cancel Culture” continues to ramp up, and people are afraid of what will become of them. Bob welcomes back The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as they look at some of the speculation, possibilities, and even realities of our time.

Numbers, Predictions, and Manipulation
Yesterday’s theme was “Finding Truth in a Word Full of Lies.” In fact, that will be much of this week’s theme. Many people are beginning to feel like they have been strung along, only to have their hopes and expectations smashed into the ground and crushed. Is this all part of a bigger plan? Today, Bob Biermann and his guest, the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, take that on this edition of “Truth to Ponder.”

February 23, 2021
Finding Truth in A World Full of Lies
This week is going to be a busy week at Truth to Ponder. During part of the week Bob will have a guest as they talk about many of the important issues we face, but today, Bob shares with us some needed insight on discerning truth in a world of lies. Our media cannot be trusted, and even reliable sources often may have been infiltrated with misinformation without their knowledge. Finding Truth is often not easy.

A Trip down Under with George Christensen
The Friday and Weekend Edition of “Truth to Ponder” Bob welcomes his guest Member of the Australian Parliament, George Christensen. George is both a Christian and a Conservative, so he gets lots of negative press as many Christians and Conservative do. Remember, the Bible warns that Christians will be hated by the world. On this edition Bob and George talk about the same very issues troubling much of the world today from the pandemic to the tech tyranny, suppression of speech, and the powerful billionaire oligarchies that dominate much of the world and technology.

Radio Lost a Legend, and is normalcy in our future?
By the time the Wednesday Radio program was completed, the news of the loss of Rush Limbaugh had not yet been made public. Like him or despise him, he left his mark on the radio industry like no other. Bob takes a few minutes at the beginning of the program to share a few thoughts. Much of the program will be dealing with many peoples hopes of finding a “post pandemic” world and normalcy. Can you lose that mask? Go Back to school? Can you go to a restaurant or theater? How much longer? Bob and his guest Dr. Gahles look at what the so called “experts” are saying.
59:30
February 18, 2021
Some personal thoughts about our time and our future.
On today’s program and podcast Bob takes some time to thank his listeners for their emails and encouragement. He then shares some thought about how to use wisdom in this strange time. He also shares his thoughts on what this radio and podcast ministry is and can be, and why he even does this daily program. It is just a time of sharing in a time of change and confusion for many.
58:30
February 17, 2021
The Huge Difference Between Knowledge and Wisdom
In the decades we have allowed our education system to be hijacked by the oligarchs of this world, we have gradually eroded the ability of critical thinking and have become dependent on government and corporations for our very survival. We have willingly become their slaves. Even worse, the church has gone astray with too many not really teaching the fullness of God’s Word and leaving the church totally unprepared to meet its God given mission. Bob Biermann and his guest, the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles take that and other topics on this edition of “Truth to Ponder.”
59:30
February 16, 2021
The “Cult of Covid” Continues
Today a bit more on the cult of covid, though for the first few minutes Bob shares some poignant thoughts about the silliness of last week’s Impeachment trial, and how telling it is of the bankruptcy of many in leadership. It seems many are lining up to take an unproven vaccine/treatment for the coronavirus. Does it work? Will it work? Are there things you need to know? Bob welcomes The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles as they take on the topic of “To jab, or not to Jab; That is the question.”

Triumphing in Tribulation-Opportunities in Oppression
The Friday and Weekend Edition of “Truth to Ponder” is both a dire reminder of the times ahead, but also a message of hope and survival. Christians and Conservatives are now in the sights of those on the left, and a time of unprecedented persecution, oppression, and social de-platforming has already begun.  Bob reminds us of how even Christians can easily get caught in the trap of believing and sharing misinformation and how that misinformation can hurt the cause of truth and the Church. This deception will be used as the excuse to even close bank accounts. On the second half of the program, he shares some thoughts about the future of both using radio and the podcast, plus some incredible opportunity ahead in spite of what is ahead.
59:30
February 12, 2021
Finding Your Place
Not a day goes by that some Conservative or Christian Group gets silenced, banned, and de-platformed by one of the big “Tech Tyrants.” These billionaire oligarchs have now put anything Christian, Pro-Life, Pro-Natural Family, and even traditional in their list of things to destroy. Even in France, Government Officials see a danger in Christians that put God’s Law over the Law of the government. The age of tribulation (Great or just severe) and persecution has come to the western world. Are you ready? Are you where God would have you be?
59:30
February 11, 2021
Getting in Place. Are You Ready for What is Next?
This past year has caused many to rethink what they are doing. The lockdowns and loss of freedom took many by total surprised, even many Christians. Because of those lockdowns and draconian orders of many tyrannical government leaders, many are choosing to leave their current communities and even states and move to where there is more freedom, and less taxation. However, that is not the only reason some people are leaving. Some are beginning to feel the nudge of the Holy Spirit to prepare to move to a new location, while others know they should stay. This week, Bob and his wife are looking at something that may be a way to develop community for the days ahead.
59:30
February 10, 2021
The Narrative Keeps Changing. Why?
Since about a year ago the information we have received on everything from the virus to the election has been tainted by politics and money. What should someone believe anymore? What is truly remarkable are the number of people that just “Go with the flow” and accept everything they are told, and they do it without question. Government officials, whose paychecks are secure, have destroyed the lives of countless people, and for what? Everything we did in the beginning was based on fraudulent information and lies. Now, a year later, the narrative keeps changing. Bob continues his discussion from yesterday with The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles.
59:30
February 9, 2021
The Cult of Covid
Since COVID-19 started dominating the news about a year ago, there has been so much misinformation, wrong speculation, continually moving goalposts, and even outright lies. One of the worst offenders of being “loose with the truth” was none other that Dr. Anthony Fauci. It seems that so much of what we were told was either wrong or an intentional lie. Why?  On today’s program, Bob welcomes The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles as they short fact from fiction, the concerns many have of the vaccines, and ow do we respond.
59:30
February 8, 2021
It finally got here. 1984.
The Friday and Weekend Edition of “Truth to Ponder” is both a dire warning and a true message of redemption and hope. On a steady glide path, the entire world is on a collision course with a time of tribulation and judgement that can’t be escaped. World leaders are being blinded by power and corruption and daily mock and test a Holy and Righteous God. Is the church ready? On the second part of the program, Bob shares a true story of hope and redemption that will be an encouragement for you, regardless of you circumstances. God will take care of His people, if we fully yield and trust Him in every way.

Wake Me Up When the Nightmare is Over
The other morning, I got up and wondered if I really wanted to get out of bed and check the news? It seems the news gets more bizarre with each passing day. We are fast approaching the one year of “Corona Panic” and extreme measures of failure. The politics has outpaced the science and have divided people even far more than politics. The Pandemic was a crisis used to alter, change, and modify behavior, and was used as a political weapon. From last year to now, truth has been a rare commodity indeed. On today’s program, Bob shares some random thoughts from his observations of the past year.
59:30
February 4, 2021
Too much “Cheap Grace” in America.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer was a Lutheran pastor, theologian, anti-Nazi dissident, and key founding member of the Confessing Church in Germany during the time of Adolf Hitler.  He was ultimately arrested by the Gestapo in 1943 for his outspoken views based on God’s Word. He was hanged and martyred for his faith on 9 April 1945 as the Nazi regime was collapsing. Bonhoeffer coined a term called “Cheap Grace.” He said that Cheap Grace “is the deadly enemy of our Church. We are fighting today for costly grace.” Now, obviously while God’s Grace is a free unmerited gift and a gift of the highest value and price. Sadly, too many that call themselves Christians treat it of something of little value. Bob talks today about how the Western Church has been ineffective because of holding to “Cheap Grace.”
59:30
February 3, 2021
Should I Stay or Should I Go?
No, it’s not just the title of an 80’s rock song, it is an actual question many people are beginning to face. Between the lockdowns and draconian orders of many tyrannical government leaders, many are choosing to leave their states and move to where there is more freedom, and less taxation. However, that is not the only reason some people are leaving. Some are beginning to feel the nudge of the Holy Spirit to prepare to move to a new location, while others know they should stay. God is getting his people ready for the times ahead. Most important, wherever God wants you to be, he will provide for your needs.  Bob and Dr. Timothy Gahles discuss this trend.
59:30

The House Always Wins
Anyone that has ever been to Los Vegas, visited a casino, or even played a government sponsored lottery should know, or figured out, that the “House always wins,” If the house, which is the Gambling platform or entity, always lost, it would be out of business. The same can be said about many of the financial markets, like the stock markets in New York, and around the world. The big players seemed to have rigged the game for their benefit, knowing if they lose, the government ultimately bails them out. The truth is, the power brokers are your earthly masters, and seek to control every aspect of your life. Today, bob welcomes the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles to the program, as they discuss how the house always wins, and what we as Christians must do.
59:30
February 1, 2021
Priorities, Politics, and Preparedness
One thing is clear, politics will never be the Savior of Mankind. We have seen politicians lie, be duplicitous, and placed their political objectives over the people they are supposed to serve. We have also learned that people of faith are increasingly being marginalized. Bob explores how we prepare, and how we fulfill our calling in Christ in this increasingly hostile world.
59:30
January 29, 2021
Are Christians still woefully unprepared?
A year ago, many people sat comfortably in their churches and thought that all was well in the world. After all, we live in a free country, and we have the freedom to worship or the freedom to not worship. We can attend any church we like without the government saying otherwise. Many churches were caught off guard when our nation was hit hard by the coronavirus. In a matter of weeks, churches were being urged to close their doors to flatten the curve. Over time these measures increased and seemingly became more arbitrary and often vindictive to houses of worship. With the stoke of a pen, many churches were forced to give up their freedom. What will be next? Another virus, or will it be what is taught in your church that is the new target?
56:30
January 28, 2021
Keeping connected in a Tech Tyrant World
Bob opens the program with a look at some of the headlines you may have missed, then reminds us of how filtered our news and information is increasingly becoming. How do we stay connected in this new world?
59:30
January 27, 2021
From fracking, the Keystone Pipeline, and the virus, there is going to be “buyer’s remorse.”
Many people voted against Donald Trump and not so much for Joe Biden. Many did not like what they heard about President Trump from the frequently truthless media. Now, just 6 days into the new administration, the truth is slowly coming out that there was no plan for stopping the virus, and everything about energy independence was nothing more than fake campaign promises. Now, we are seeing radical changes on lockdowns, the virus, and even why do we need a vaccine? Bob welcomes back The Rev. Dr. timothy Gahles to the program, as they breakdown these stories.
59:30
January 26, 2021
How many lies does it take?
On Sunday night, bob and his wife were watching TV and the commentator had a “shocking revelation” about the origins of the Coronavirus that has been the scourge of the world. As Bob listened, he realized that he had shared pretty much the same information back in April, May, June, September, and other times on this radio program and podcast. How many LIES will we endure before we demand the full and entire truth?
59:30
January 25, 2021
We made it to the weekend. Time for something positive…
What a week this past week has been. Perhaps it’s time for something a bit more useful and even a bit uplifting. Last Weekend Bob was in Lubbuck, Texas to visit a church. As many listeners know, Bob is also in Ordain Ministry, as serves as a Bishop in the Reformed Anglican Church (http://racus.org). Bob traveled to receive a new church into the Reformed Anglican Church, Christ Church in Lubbuck, TX. As a part of that trip, Bob was a guest on a local radio program aired on the local News Talk Station, KFYO AM 790 and 95.1 FM. The  Program is called "Reason, Religion, and Reality" and airs from Noon until 2 PM local time. Bob was a guest in the second hour, and for this weekend, Bob would like to share some highlights from his guest appearance.
59:30
January 22, 2021
Phony People, Phony Politicians, Phony Press, and the Phony Prophets…Good Lord Spare Us
We made it through the first day of the Biden Presidency, and so far, the world has not imploded. While there are no doubts there was serious voter irregularities in many states and even a potentially stolen election, a “Peaceful Transfer of Power” took place on Wednesday. What does this mean going forward? Why were there so many fake prognosticators out there with “words of knowledge” that failed? Who can you trust? Bob looks at the events of the past few days and sets us up to understand what the most important things are we can do now and going forward.
59:30
January 21, 2021
But “Q” and Facebook said it would be Trump. What happened?
Like it or not, Joe Biden is now the 46thPresident of the United States. In a Hollywood choreographed event, Biden took center stage to assume this new roll in his 47-year Washington DC Career. In spite of all the predictions of a miracle event, and in spite of the so called “Prophets of God,” the election was never won, or overturned. So, where do we go from here? Bob reminds us of what is truly important, and one election is not the end of the world. Yes, there will be some very strange times ahead, but in God we find our hope, not in Presidents.
58:30
January 20, 2021
After Wednesday, what’s next?
On Wednesday, with 25-thousand troops in Washington, DC, in what will look more like the installation of a dictator than the peaceful transfer of power of a president, 47 year political “do nothing” Joe Biden will be inaugurated the 46th President of the United States. A third of the nation is thrilled, a third are in panic, and a third are clueless and content in their social media world. Today Bob begins a series of programs looking at what to expect.
59:30
January 19, 2021
Fear Not, the Battle is the Lord’s
Barring any unforeseen circumstances, this Wednesday at Noon, Joe Biden will become the 46th President of the United States. What a ride these past 4 years, let along this past year of 2020. From the pandemic to the election, from misinformation and fear, many people are fearful of the future. Many are deeply (and in many ways rightly) concerned about may become of them? The combined power of the Tech Oligarchy of Facebook, Twitter, Google, Apple, and even Amazon showed their true colors and we watched as the giants we ourselves created turned on half of the population. Will they gain or lose influence? Time will tell. The bottom line is this world has been here before. Just because we in the United States for the first time in decades are facing difficult times does not necessarily mean the end of the world is nigh.  On this Monday edition, Bob shares a message of hope in a turbulent time.
59:35
January 18, 2021
Opportunity, Obedience, and Blessing
Today Bob brings a program of hope in a very confused world. This past year has changed not only the country, but our entire world. Will we ever be the same? The program starts with a memory from 5 years ago this very weekend, when the program originated from the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Bob shares a missed opportunity. He then welcomes his close friend, the Rt. Rev. Ian Anderson.  Bishop Anderson is a fellow clergyman with Bob in the Reformed Anglican Church. The two of them discuss the division in our nation and even in our churches and reminds us of the vital part the church has played in the United States for freedom. We believe you will find this program inspiring and helpful in these unusual times.
59:30
January 15, 2021
Cancel Culture, Division, and Servitude
The most powerful weapon in the arsenal of any despot or dictator is “division.” A people divided among themselves is much easier to control. The United States has never been this divided, some even say we are more divided today than during the Civil War. From politics to the pandemic, people are now in camps, often filled with anger and hopelessness. This division has fostered the cancel culture, and even the decline of the church. Bob takes on these issues in a hard-hitting program with his guest, The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles.
59:30
January 14, 2021
It’s a Mad Mad World After All!
The world seems to be unraveling and falling apart before our very eyes. We now are more divided than ever. Bob takes this hour to share a number of thoughts from his heart, and some powerful thoughts about where we might be headed. Don’t fall for the “click-bait” and rumors, keep your eyes on what is good, decent and pure. Also, Bob shares his thought about staying connected in uncertain times, and shares some thoughts about our calling, with a reminder to “Fear Not!”.
59:30
January 13, 2021
Double-Minded Leaders (and our willingness to follow)
We have come to a point where the world’s people have been successfully divided. Within the United States we have become divided as “left and right,” Pro-Life and Anti-Abortion, and a dozen other groups and labels. We live in a world of perfectly crafted sound bites with little substance. Add to that the “Double-Minded” people that are often found in leadership, and it is a recipe for disaster; a disaster unfolding before our very eyes. It would appear both honesty and critical thinking are dead. Bob welcomes back Dr. Timothy Gahles as they explore these failing foundations of our nation.
59:30
January 12, 2021
The High Tech Cancel Culture Has Spoken.
On Friday of this past week (January 8, 2021) The tech Oligarchs decided to become the official “Minister’s of Truth.” Twitter took down the President of the United States’ Twitter account, and Twitter’s new competition, Parler, was removed from both the Google PlayStore and the Apple iPhone App site. Then Amazon, where Parler leased their server space, de-platformed them, which totally shut them down in what was most likely a coordinated antitrust violation. Welcome to the future, and it is only going to get worse if you depend on the monopolies of Google, Gmail, Android Phones, Apple, iPhones, YouTube and many others. On this Monday’s episode Bob talks about our dependency on those that really don’t care about us, but about their power. Bob’s guest is the Rev. Dr. timothy Gahles as they talk about our tech addiction and other alternatives. It is a show you really need to hear and share.
59:30
January 11, 2021
Fear Not, Hope is NOT Gone.
The events of this past Wednesday in Washington, DC (January 6, 2021) shocked and amazed many people in the United States and the World. How could this happen? Was any of this staged or planned? How could something that was meant for good go so wrong? It may take months to ever find out, or we may never find out at all. For many Christians, they feel that hope is now gone; but is it?  For years, Bob Biermann has been warning Christians to prepare for a vastly different time. The truth is Social Media will now clamp down on both Conservative and Christian content. True Christians will be increasingly distrusted and pressured, and finally will learn you can’t change the world at the ballot box, as the ballot box is a mere reflection of our culture and corruption. This is one of the reasons that the Program “Truth to Ponder” is aired on Shortwave Radio, as the big tech platforms will be increasingly hostile to the message. Bob welcomes his guest, John Tayloe, the president of Voice of Hope Radio Ministry.
56:38
January 8, 2021
What a Difference a Day Makes
The events of the past 48 hours are stunning. From the election in Georgia to what unfolded yesterday afternoon at the Capitol. There is so much we do not know yet or understand fully. This program needed to be recorded a bit before, so some things may have changed in the interim, but there is no doubt that there are forces pushing America to the Brink. Politicians cannot fix this. They never could. The church that speaks the truth will be pushed out of our culture, and those that have sold-out to evil will rule the day. Time is g rowing short, and the past 48 hours are proof.
56:37
January 7, 2021
How Did that Election in Georgia Work Out for You?
Honestly, the way the election came out in Georgia is no surprise. At the time of recording this radio program and podcast, it appears that both Democrats most likely “won,” though the system that gave former Vice President Biden the win in Georgia was still in place. Were there some questionable results? Very probably, however, the idea of “fixing” our nation and culture at the ballot box is NOT the solution. Bob shares his thoughts, and what should be our primary emphasis.
59:30
January 6, 2021
The Ballot Box is NOT the Answer, It is ONLY a Symptom
Today (Tuesday January 5th, 2021) is the runoff election in Georgia, that will determine the balance of power in the United States Senate. Much has been said and written about the importance of this election, and its potential impact on the United States. While it is true that this election is important, it is far from the solution from the ills that face this nation, and the western world. The results of the election, regardless of the real and obvious prospects of voting fraud, are only a symptom of a greater issue. We may not want to accept this, but the Bible makes clear that the Sprit of Anti-Christ is already in the world, and that evil spirit has permeated our culture, and even some churches.
56:36
January 5, 2021
Two Sides of the Same Coin
It is said by keeping people divided you can gain more control; the secret is to keep the two sides from being at war. Often times it seems that the American People and the People of the world are being played for fools by being divided into opposing groups. Do elections matter? Are we being told the truth? Was Donald Trump an “Interrupter” that got in the way of the New World Order? Bob shares some thoughts on this guaranteed to be bumpy week in politics and our culture.
56:34
January 4, 2021
The Rise of Familiar Spirits and Paganism-Part Two
Bob welcomes back to the program The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles as they continue their conversation from yesterday on the demonic influence on our world and culture. In this so-called age of enlightenment, we seem even more influenced by an unbridled evil taking a strong hold of our young people and culture, even more so than in times past. How do you confront this?
56:36
January 1, 2021
The Rise of Familiar Spirits and Paganism
In this age of “science” and modernism, why is there this rise in demonology, demonic presence, and dabbling in the occult? None of this is by any means new, as it has been present in this world for ages. There is an evil presence gradually plunging the world into spiritual darkness and even false worship. Bob welcome as his guest The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles to the program as the explore this increasing phenomenon.
56:38
December 31, 2020
Who Can You Believe?
No matter how you look at things, some things we are being told to believe simply don’t add up. The events in Nashville, TN have raised all types of speculation from foreign actors to the “Deep State.” Legitimate questions of how could a 63-year-old man of average means pull of such an act of destruction? What is significant about the AT&T Datacenter? Bob begins to share his thoughts but is also being careful not to fuel any unfounded theories. It is safe to say, like the election narrative we are being told, it does not pass the smell test.
59:30
December 30, 2020
Trump and the Many Prophets. Who are they hearing?
There has been no shortage of people making predictions about the outcome of the presidential election. Many predicted an out and out a Trump victory to happen on election night. Others predicted the election would be turned around well before Christmas in Trump’s favor. Right now, it is increasingly appearing that regardless of the legal battles and apparent irregularities, some of these prophecies have been premature. While it is still possible for something to happen to change the outcome, it is time to review some of those that made predictions that have now been proven false. How do you identify a false prophet, or someone just trying to follow which way the wind is blowing? Don’t allow yourself to be deceived.
59:30
December 29, 2020
The Fourth Day of Christmas?
Bob begins this last week of the year 2020 with a reminder that we are still in the Christmas Season, regardless of what the world of retail tells you. He also shares his thoughts on this year, and what he is thinking about looking into the year 2021.
59:30
December 28, 2020
Christmas Day Memories over the decades
On the Christmas Day edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob shares memories of Christmases over the past 100 years, including many memories that many of the regular listeners will recall from the 1950s through the 1970s.
59:30
December 25, 2020
A Christmas Classic Tradition, with Lessons and Carols
On this special Christmas Eve edition, Bob takes some time away from the headlines and news of the day to share hope in the form of the classic Lessons and Carols tradition that many may remember from Christmas Eve. In this special service of the Word and Music, may you find the joy of this special season.

Which do you “Fear” most? God, or the virus?
Many businesses were closed. Most schools sent their children home to be educated online. People wear masks and look at everyone around them as someone who is a mortal threat because of a virus. We are told that churches are supper spreaders, but airliners are not. Many churches have suspended much of their word as the fear of this virus has captured the minds of many. Is there hope? Bob welcomes back his friend, The rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as they discuss these and other issues that are impacting our world and culture.

The Future One World Religion, and simply a “One” world.
On the Monday edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob had as his guest the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. As they neared the end of the program, they started to talk about the traits of a one world religion, and how it is now beginning to take hold. They continue that discussion, and move toward how does the true church survive in the coming times?

The End of the Beginning? Or the Beginning of the End…
For almost 10 months we have been engaged in the war against the pandemic. We have been told to social distance, avoid close contact, stay away from family and friends, wear a face covering, be afraid, shutter your business, and trust the science. We were told a vaccine will save us, but now even with a vaccine, we are told we still may not get back to normal. What gives, and is this really science, or is it something else. Bob welcomes his guest Dr. Timothy Gahles.

Moved, Stirred, and Ready. Time is of the essence!
On today’s program Bob starts by sharing something he promised to share with you on Tuesday. As many listeners know, Bob is deeply concerned about the direction of much of the Western Church. Some have simply rejected the Gospel; others have become too worldly and man centered. He shares the audio track from a humorous but absolutely true short video. It is an eye opener.  There is no doubt that time is getting short and preparing God’s people for what is to come is urgent. To discuss that Bob welcomes his good friend Brother Jim Shaw to the program. Besides Jim’s passion for sharing the Gospel, Jim turned a childhood hobby into a thriving family business. You can find out more at http://unclejimswormfarm.com.

More Little Lies, those sweet little lies…
On the Wednesday edition of the program, Bob reminds us how the mainstream corporate media has willfully (and intentionally) lied to the American People for decades, and now their bias is not even hidden. The media uses its influence now to sway elections and public opinion, often to things that are either distortion or outright lies. The principle of the “Fourth Estate” of a free and honorable press to keep our government honest has vanished. Now, the media is fully aligned with one political party and agenda, and it is not for you best interest.

December 16, 2020
Are We In, Of, or Out?
Putting all politics aside, this world and the United States are about to go through a rapid and major change. It you thought was a bumpy ride, it’s time to buckle up and realize politics, politicians, and much of our leadership has failed us. How do we live in this world when we are not supposed to be “of” this world?” Bob’s guest is the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. Together they talk about how we are called to live in, but not of, this world.

Tell Me Lies, Tell Me Sweet Little Lies...
P. T. Barnum is claimed to have said “There’s a sucker born very minute.” To today’s mainstream media, there is one born every millisecond. How we can be lied to so constantly, and even when the truth is eventually shown, and so many people go back for more? Do people want to believe the lies? Remember Hunter Biden and the laptop? Remember how all the media circled the wagon to make that story go away before the election? So why do they care now? Are they the Ministry of Truth for a ne world order? Today, Bob welcomes back The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. They discuss that and other ways we are being deceived.

The Harbinger Returns…
Is Bible Prophecy unfolding before our eyes? On this Edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob welcomes Jonathan Cahn. Jonathan is known for his prophetic book “The Harbinger” That book became an instant New York Times best seller and brought him to national and international prominence. The Harbinger was followed by The Mystery of the Shemitah, The Book of Mysteries, The Paradigm, and The Oracle, all of them, New York Times Best Sellers. He was named, along with Billy Graham and Keith Greene, one of the top forty spiritual leaders of the last forty years to have radically impacted the world. Known as a prophetic voice of this generation, he has spoken on Capitol Hill, at the United Nations, and to millions of people around the world. Today he shares his insights on Truth to Ponder.

You Will Be “Deplatformed”
More and more, big tech companies are clamping down on both free speech and people of faith. Using never defined terms like “Community Standards” and “Terms of Service,” slowly but surely websites are being forced to move to new hosting at great expense, and entire audio, video, and written libraries simply disappear. As bad as it is, it will get vastly worse. Today, bob shares some thoughts to begin in getting ready for a more hostile future. It means staking out claims in both the New Media and Legacy Technology.
56:33
December 10, 2020
Georgia On My Mind
On the Wednesday edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob shares from the heart some of his memories of when he first moved to the State of Georgia many decades ago. It is both a sad, but encouraging story that may be just what you, or someone you know, needs to hear. Bob explains (in the second half of the program) why he is also sad with much of what he sees today in the State of Georgia, and the poor and seemingly corrupt response to obvious and serious voter irregularities. If not corrected, it makes it look like the Peach State is now the Banana Republic.
56:34
December 9, 2020
Who do YOU trust? This is the question you must answer, while you have time.
On the Monday edition of “Truth to Ponder,” Bob shared some of what is being predicted by those claiming to have a prophetic ministry. There are many that are claiming that President Trump will ultimately win and hold on to the Whitehouse. Whether or not any of these prophetic words are true, only time will tell. The question is what if they are wrong and we have a Biden presidency beginning in 2021? How should we be prepared, and what is the globalist plan for you? We’ve seen how much freedom can evaporate in just a matter of months in the name of a pandemic.  Bob welcomes back to the program the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as they continued their conversation on understanding this new global system, and our response.
56:35
December 8, 2020
The Prophetic or the Pathetic? Time will tell...
There are people claiming to have a prophetic ministry that say in spite of what the mainstream media is saying that President Trump will end up being re-elected. Obviously, they are putting their ministry and reputations on the line. Bob’s guest is one of his regular contributors, the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. They share about modern day prophets, but also the coming one-world religion. We live in a time where the fight is not against flesh and blood, but it truly is spiritual warfare on a global scale.
56:35
December 7, 2020
Why is the Truth so hard to find?
Since the beginning of the Pandemic, we have been hearing all types of “numbers” in regard to the Corona Virus. From infections to cases to deaths, the media has done their best to keep you in fear, but why? It seems that every time that “positive” statistics come out that go against the “fear” narrative, those stories, from reputable and distinguished institutions and sources, get pulled down by social media and even ignored by mainstream news outlets. Bob digs into some numbers that are real and can be found for you to review. It is a true eye opener.
56:36

Just a Chat Between You and I…
On the Thursday edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob opens from his heart on some thoughts about the world, the media, the pandemic, about the changes in our world, and so much more. On this program, Bob just wanted to get a few things off his mind and share directly with you. As this program enters its 4th month, Bob is thankful for the support and encouragement many of you have given by email and regular mail. Bob is also thankful for the financial support to keep this program airing on International Shortwave Radio.

Election Fairness, Government Largess, and a Totally Bankrupt Media.
On the Wednesday edition of Truth to Ponder Bob welcomes back his good friend, Bob Parks. Bob calls himself the “Uncomfortable Conservative” being a black man in racially charged world. The two Bobs talks about the recent election, why the swamp is hard to drain, how the media has cheated America with tainted and biased news, and so much more. Bob, and his wife, Laura Erickson, operate “Black and Blonde Media.” You can find their website at https://www.blackandblondemedia.com.

One Government, One Currency, One ID, and One Religion. Could It Happen?
For years there has been talk about world peace, solving world poverty, and guaranteeing equal outcomes for all people by having a unified planet. Those that push such a narrative seek to have the world unified by a single digital currency, vaccinations for our health, a digital bio ID, and even getting all the major religions of the world to unite. Is this a far-fetched idea, or is COVID actually paving the way in that direction? Bob welcomes back the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as the finished their conversation from yesterday.
56:39
December 1, 2020
What freedom will you surrender to get back to “Normal?”
Imagine being able to go to a restaurant, visit a Walmart, fly in an airliner, and not have to wear a face covering or practice social distancing. It could happen, but at what cost? On the Monday edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob welcomes his good friend and regular guest The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as they explore a future that could be the new normal. Also, on the program, can you imagine a one world religion?  It too is coming, sooner than you think.

Preparing for a New Beginning
This weekend marks the beginning of the “count-down” to Christmas known as the Season of Advent. On the first part of the program, Bob reflects on where we have become as a society and world. On the second half of the program, Bob turns his attention to helping us understand this very special time of the year.
56:36
November 27, 2020
Giving Thanks in all Things-Even when it’s hard
On the Thursday edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob shares some thoughts about this special day in the United States, Thanksgiving. This has truly been a challenging year for many people and families because of the pandemic. Many have lost their jobs and their businesses, and many have gone through their saving. Bob reminds us, that even in our most difficult times, we need to give thanks. 
56:35

Another Trip “Down-Under”

Stay Home, Shut Up, and be Thankful!!
On this Tuesday edition of the program, continues his conversation from yesterday that started with the World Economic Forum’s call for a Global Reset because of the Pandemic, to how this pandemic is being used to change the way we think and live. In less than a year, we now accept a narrative and restrictions that would have never been tolerated in a different time. Bob welcomes the Rev Dr. Timothy Gahles again, and together they explore this and other topics, including the how to awaken the church.
56:36
November 24, 2020
Who is Klaus Schwab, and Why Should You Care?
Klaus Schwab is a German engineer and economist best known as the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum. Virtually all world leaders listen and follow his lead. According to the World Economic Forum “To achieve a better outcome, the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed. In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” Today Bob welcomes his guest The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as they together try to explain the “Great Global Reset” that is coming soon.
56:34
November 23, 2020
The Prophets and Profits of a Pandemic
Many people are deeply concerned about this worldwide pandemic. They are often fearful of what the future holds for them and their loved ones. Sadly, there are many that will fear the pandemic than they fear God. The Bible teaches that the “fear of God” is the beginning of Wisdom and of Understanding. On this edition of the program, Bob shares his thoughts about not being deceived or taken advantage of, but most important, to find hope in these very troubled times.
56:34
November 20, 2020
Canceling the Cancel Culture in the Clutch of Covid.
On today’s program Bob shares some thoughts, but also encouragement, in this time of the cancel culture. The cancel culture uses fear and intimidation to crush their opponents. The entire idea is to destroy all the established norms, force people into accepting to absurd, and breakdown our will to fight back.   
56:35
November 19, 2020
Two Good Friends Share from Their Hearts
On this edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob welcomes a former colleague and fellow broadcaster, Kelly Ulrich. About 5 years ago, both Kelly and Bob were working at the same radio media ministry. For years Kelly worked for USA Radio News, where many may recognize her voice as on on-air newscaster. Bob and Kelly share their thoughts and observations on how people are hurting and in fear from the pandemic, and so much more.
56:35
November 18, 2020
Are You Ready for the “Great Reset?”
On this Tuesday edition of the program, Bob moves away from the election narrative a bit, and turns to the increasing chatter that we may never go back to “normal” in our country and even the world. In less than a year, we now accept a narrative and restrictions that would have never been tolerated in a different time. Bob welcomes the Rev Dr. Timothy Gahles again, and together they explore this and other topics, including the sleeping church.
56:34
November 17, 2020
Denying Voter Fraud in the Face of Evidence
The mainstream media narrative is still “Biden won, now accept it!” Even in the face of provable voter fraud and election theft, recounts, and court cases, we are told to just sit down. On today’s program, Bob welcomes The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles as the two of them try to sort out truth from fiction, a bit of speculation, and what it means going forward.
56:37
November 16, 2020
Memories of a Time Gone By
There was a time that radio made a huge impact on our world and our lives. Even though radio still commands a large audience globally, things have changed over this past half century or more. AM Radio is now celebrating around 100 years of service. Along with AM and FM radio, Shortwave Radio, in use for at least 90 years, has a unique place in history and even today. For decades shortwave radio was the link to many oppressed nations, and a way to communicate to a world-wide audience. On this program Bob welcomes Dan Robinson. Dan was with the Voice of America for 34 years, with 4 years as the Whitehouse Correspondent. Dan shares some of his memories and his thoughts about International Radio.    
56:36
November 13, 2020
The Magic of a Mask & More Politics of a Pandemic
On the Thursday edition of the program, Bob shares his thoughts about a recent pronouncement about the effectiveness of wearing a facemask or face covering. As if on perfect cue, we hear of “recent studies” showing a facemask now suddenly protects the wearer too! After months of shaming people with the narrative “My mask protects you, and your mask protects me” suddenly the mask is the magic bullet to stop the spread of COVID-19. How convenient this study, when one Presidential candidate has been talking about “mandatory mask wearing.” Considering these same experts have been wrong more than they have been right, what are we to believe?
56:35
November 12, 2020
Some Veteran’s Day Thoughts, Our World, and an Almost Forgotten Memory.
On the Wednesday edition of the program, Bob shares his thoughts about Veteran’s Day. For many of our young people today, this day is nothing more than a holiday from school. It is sad that many young people no longer care, and even worse, show little or no respect for those that have served our nation. How did this happen? To be honest, it is a combination of our worsening public-school system that puts little emphasis on history and standards, and a general apathy. On the second half of the show, Bob shares his thoughts on an event that occurred 45 years ago yesterday.
56:37
November 11, 2020
Is Your Church “Woke” Enough?
On this Tuesday edition of the program, Bob moves away from the election narrative and turns our attention to something that has been happening for several decades and is becoming more mainstreamed in many of our churches in the Western World. Quietly the church has been accepting of strange teachings, behaviors, and doctrines, in what appears to be a way to destroy the true church from within. Bob welcomes the Rev Dr. Timothy Gahles again, and together they explore this and other topics.
56:38
November 10, 2020
Why the Big Rush?
Even on election night (in the USA) with many votes uncounted, many in the media (including FOX News) were busy trying to create the narrative that Joe Biden won; now move on! Everywhere you turn in the media, the fixed narrative is that Joe Biden is now the “President Elect.” Any attempt to show actual voter fraud and election issues is being stamped out in a concerted effort to make you accept this narrative. On the Monday edition Bob welcomes back The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles, as they try to make sense out of the confusion.
56:35
November 9, 2020
A Political Break-A-Way
On the Weekend Edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob takes a break from “political parties,” and focuses on some of the strange issues that are increasingly defining our western world, and its implications soon. How did we get to this point? Can we ever turn back?

The Election Hangover Continues, and Please Quote Me Correctly
On the Thursday Edition of Truth to Ponder Bob shares his concerns about how voting in the United States seems to be such a struggle in some areas, and much easier in others? For Bob, this brings back the memories of the 2000 Presidential Election in Florida that had the country on edge for almost a month. Are today’s voting issues by accident or design? He also answers someone critical of his observations and deals with being mis-quoted on something said on Wednesday’s program.
56:36
November 5, 2020
The Hang-Over After the Election
Many people went to bed on election night and woke up to find out we still do not know who won. Strange numbers, delays, irregularities and changing “rules” have muddied the entire process. Is it fraud? Who knows? Regardless of the outcome there is a very telling tale that does not bode well for the future of the United States. It is time for people of faith to be ready for the huge changes ahead that may come sooner than you think.

Planning for Our Tomorrow - After Today is Settled
On this Election Day (USA) edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob welcomes back his guest from yesterday, the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. Many people across the United States will be waiting to learn the results from today’s election. It could be late tonight, maybe Wednesday, or even days or weeks before the results are finally known. How dependent is your life on this election? Are you pinning your hopes, dreams, and future on the outcome? If you are, regardless of the outcome, maybe it is time to rethink what is really important, and where you need to place your hope and life.

Tuesday, November 3rd, could be an exceedingly long day in the United States…
On the Monday edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob welcomes his guest the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. Tuesday, November 3rd, is election day in the United States, and while it’s true there is a Presidential Election, the reality is there is far more on the ballot and far more at stake. From a Pandemic increasingly looking like a “Casedemic,” to warnings of lockdowns and threats of rioting in the streets, the world is in for a rough ride, regardless of the outcome.

Thoughts from the Heart
On the Friday and Weekend edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob takes some time to share some various thoughts on his mind as we leave the month of October behind, and enter the month of November. What a year 2020 has been, and how many of our plans were so radically changed. Bob also shares his thoughts on can we even trust much of the media for our news and information.
59:30
October 30, 2020
Will the Fear Ever End?
The world is being told to “brace” for a second or third wave of Coronavirus infections. With a presidential election less than a week away, can you trust these new numbers? If it wasn’t for the near “perfect timing,” and having seen much of what we have been told during these past months often not fully being true, some people might be a bit skeptical. Yet many believe it all without question and often find themselves living in fear. Bob reminds us that fear should never be our only motivation and shares a true message of hope.
59:30
October 28, 2020
Keeping the Fear Alive…It's hard work!
Bob continues the conversation that was started yesterday with the Rev. Dr. timothy Gahles. A story found in much of the intellectually bankrupt media appeared over the past weekend. The headline as seen in Yahoo News warned “A Major Spike in Coronavirus Cases at California Mega Church.” To read that headline you would think it is the end of the world, and this church is now a deadly super-spreader of a magic virus that never infects people in airliners or protests, but only at certain gatherings, like churches. To put it in perspective, Grace Community Church has had between 6000 and 7000 people attending each Sunday since July. Buried in the story is the fact that it is a total of 3 “cases” (or positive tests) in the past 14 days.  It does not even state if they got the virus at the church, or if these are asymptomatic cases. No word on hospitalizations or potential deaths.
59:30
October 27, 2020
Welcome to the season of Antichrist?
Many of us have heard and read about times of tribulation, and even about what the Bible calls the “Spirit of Anti-Christ.” What is it, and how is it potentially manifesting itself in our world today? On the Monday edition of the program, Bob welcomes one of his popular regular guests, The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. The two of them discuss both the spiritual and practical implications of what the world is currently experiencing. Our time of preparation for where this world is heading is now.
59:30
October 26, 2020
Thinking about the future
On the Friday and Weekend edition of the program, Bob shares his thoughts on using both new and traditional media for effective outreach. This program marks the 40th episode of “Truth to Ponder.” In these 8 weeks Bob has covered a number of topics, but today wants you to understand his concerns for the future of how this program and others can be heard. The Tech Giants are increasingly showing hostility to Christians on their platforms, so it is time for a plan.
59:30
October 23, 2020
Redeeming the Time-Or, where did the time go?
On this Thursday’s addition to the program, Bob just shares from the heart of our use of our time in this life. What things are worth out time, what things are not? How do we invest our time in our Children and Grandchildren? It is true, that time once spent can never be refunded.
59:30
October 22, 2020
Do the tech giants own you?
Over the past quarter century, we have seen tech and Internet companies come and go. Many are forgotten in the dust of history, but several have become household names, such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and a growing list of others. Most of the giant companies became what they are by offering you a myriad of free services such as email, online storage, and more. For years they were “neutral” on topics like politics and religion, but once they cornered the market, the censorship has begun.   
59:30
October 21, 2020
The Numbers don’t lie, but you are being lied to with numbers...
Bob continues sharing some thoughts about the information we are being fed daily from media and online sources. It is clear that there is only ONE established truth, and that truth is often not based in the facts. If you dare question the singular narrative you are snubbed, ignored, or banished.  Bob shares some of the factual information systematically ignored by most media, and how most media lie by omission to keep you in fear.
59:30
October 20, 2020
Glad to be back home!
Last week Bob flew to Virginia to attend a very special meeting that meant much to him.

He also shares his thoughts on this continuing pandemic and some of the weirdness. On the second half of the program he shares his thoughts about the meeting he attended and how it was a reminder of some very important things.

Are we being fooled by politics?
Bob welcomes his good friend the rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles Dr. Gahles is a 911 survivor having been working that morning on Wall Street in Manhattan. Dr. Gahles was already in part-time ministry that event happened. It changed his life, and since that time, Dr. Gahles has studied extensively the early church, and their view of the world and our life. Today, Bob and Timothy look beyond today, to unravel the politics of this Pandemic and to see how this pandemic is being used to change how we live and what freedoms may vanish.

Is the Pandemic being used to restrict your freedoms?
On the Thursday edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob picks up his conversation from Tuesday with the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles.

Coronavirus News or Disinformation?
On the Tuesday edition of our program Bob welcomes back The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. Everyday we are bombarded with information, statistics, numbers, and prognostications about the corona virus. Many wonders if the world will ever return to normal. While this virus is serious, is it also being used to change our world and the way we live? Will life ever be normal, or are we using in a new normal?

Pandemic in the "Land Down Under," and why it matters to you!
On this edition of Truth to Ponder, Bob takes us on a trip “Down Under” to the country of Australia. His guest for the program is George Christensen, a member of the Federal Parliament in Australia. George has been in office since 2010 and is one of the most outspoken members of that political body. A lighting rod to some, and a levelheaded politician to others. On the program Bob and George share how a good segment of Australia has given into the fear of the pandemic, and willingly have surrendered their rights, and even livelihoods.

Professional Paid Liars, and Unprecedented Power Grabs
Where do you get your news, and can you trust what you are told? Bob explores that and digs past the headlines and hysteria to share some cold hard facts about Corona related lockdowns, politics, and power grabs. It is now blatantly obvious that this “Pandemic” was not as originally claimed, but it has been used to suppress populations, ruin economies, and empower a ruling class. You need to know the truth. We HAVE been lied to!

While We Still Have Time…
How much of this pandemic has become hype, hyperbole, and political fodder? The predictions from back in March ended up being wrong. We told, here in the United States, that upwards of 3-million people would die by June if we did nothing, perhaps 2 million if we acted with shutdowns, social distancing, and now wearing a Face Covering. Bob welcomes to the program Fr. John Peck.  Fr. John is an Orthodox Priest who has studied the history of Christian persecution and has spent decades studying world-wide trends. He shares his thoughts on how the church can survive in the difficult days ahead.  Truthfully, after this pandemic, the world will never be the same.

Coronavirus Obsession. Is it even healthy?
On the Tuesday edition of our program Bob welcomes back The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. Since late February, the nation and the world has been almost daily obsessed with new infections, hospitalizations and deaths attributed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, known as COVID-19. We have seen people pitted against each other in should one wear a mask or not? Do face coverings really work? Why is alright to fly in a packed airliner, but not attend church? Why is singing hymns outside a cause for arrest, but rioting, screaming and mayhem are ignored? Where is this leading? Bob and Timothy discuss that on this program.

Changing for better or worse?
Today Bob shares some thoughts on how we as a people and a nation has changed in a generation. He compares a different time in our lives. In looking at the list, it is obvious that we have been given so much in technology but lost so much of our humanity.

Real Hope in Pandemic and Strange Times
On the Friday edition Bob brings back his guest from Monday and Tuesday, Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. The first two programs of this week focused on what could be happening with using COVID-19 as a gateway to some type of “mark” to show you are “safe.” We live in a time that is unprecedented, yet we should not be in a state of fear. In spite of all the difficulties, there is hope.

Funny Money and Your Financial Future. Reset Time?
We see terms like “Crypto Currency,” “Fiat Currency,” “Block Chain,” and so much more when it comes to our economy. What do all these terms mean? Most important, what do they mean top you and your financial stability and future. On this program Bob is joined by a good friend for many years, Peter Gnass. Peter is a former University professor of economics but realized what was being taught is simply not “real” economics. Peter explains what many of these terms mean, and how to help protect your financial security in the uncertain days ahead. Peter also created Standard Precious Metals, which can be found at http://standardpreciousmetals.com.

From Pandemic to Prophecy. It is getting time?
With all the weirdness of the year 2020, many people are beginning to legitimately wonder if there are any realistic aspects that may relate to biblical prophecy and the end times, to which we should be aware. The problem today are the many “soothsayers” that claim to have all the answers, they say “Just buy my book or DVD, and you too can be ready.” The truth is there are many things you need to be watching. On the Monday Edition of “Truth to Ponder” Bob welcomes back to the show The Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. A former Wall Street trader and 9-11 survivor, Timothy is also an ordained Anglican Priest, and lover of the Gospel and lover of truth who has spent decades studying the complex world around us from a biblical and practical point of view. Be prepared, you will be surprised at what you hear…but take heart. Jesus said, “Fear Not.”

Pondering the Headlines that Impact our Lives
There is so much happening in the news today that it is often hard to keep up. Bob spends some time looking at some of the stories influencing our lives and digs for the truth in a sea of intentional misinformation and deceit. From Black Lives Matters to Climate Change, Bob breaks it down in easy to understand terms.

More Fakes, Phonies, and Frauds-From BLM to Replacement Theology
Bob continues with his series of Fakes, Phonies, and Frauds. On the first segment of the show, he addresses the fraud being perpetrated in the name of Black Lives Matters, and how they are pushing for a political agenda that has nothing to do with the preservation or improving Black Lives.  On the Second Part of the program, Bob addresses a heresy that has found its way back into the church of “Replacement Theology.” Replacement Theology is the false belief that God has broken His promises to Israel and the Descendants of Abraham, and the modern-day Israel is not fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. It is a dangerous belief that borderlines on being Anti-Semitic while claiming to be anti-Zionist. Dr. Michael Brown is the founder and president of AskDrBrown Ministries, and sets the record straight.

Fakes, Phonies, and Frauds
We are living in an age of deception of Satanic proportions. People that want to control your life are using everything in their power from the pandemic to even pure nonsense to deceive you. Today Bob introduces some of the topics he will be bringing to light over the next week or so. While we expect deception from politics and shady business-people, the deception from the many fake and phony “Preachers of God” is one of the greatest dangers putting people in bondage. These “self-ordained” oracles are using their often-stolen “office” for personal gain and should be called out and shunned for the damage they are causing. Even worse, many of those fraudulent teachers proclaim a anti-biblical, false, and dangerous Gospel that is NOT the Gospel.

Voting Fraud, The Virus Fear, and Total Upheaval
On this edition of the program, Bob looks at how the COVID CRISIS is being used to create the perfect scenario for voter fraud in the 2020 election. Mail in ballots, totaling far more than the number of eligible voters will be cast, and if the fraudsters win, the election will not even be decided until far after election day. The ballots will be counted in the “battleground” states, until Biden wins, and using this Pandemic will be the vehicle.

Home Invasion, Tech Tyrants, and Remembering 9/11/2001
This weekend Bob welcomes back the Rev. Dr. Timothy Gahles. Timothy was on Bob’s new program, “Truth to Ponder” on Tuesday of this past week and the response was phenomenal, so Bob invited him back again.  He worked 9 years on Wall St. and is a 9/11 survivor of the attack in New York City in 2001. In his spiritual journey he has traveled the gamut of Christian Churches and landed as an Anglican Priest and Vice President of Chaplaincy in a Retirement Community for the past 13 years. He has studied Illness, suffering death, and dying in early Church history and how to minister to the Image of God in man effectively. In addition, he is a Certified Bio Ethicist and Grief Specialist. He is the proud father of 6 children, husband to a wonderful wife, lover of rare old books and as a hobby, loves to rebind/fix books. His life experience is a treasure to help each and every one of us.

What are the incredible changes on the horizon? Are you ready?
Will our lives, our families, our travel, our occupations, our schools and even our churches be forever changed by the current pandemic? That is our topic on this Thursday Edition of Truth to Ponder.  While there is talk about a vaccine, the truth is it may never come. The mainstream media delights in bringing us news of new infections, while ignoring the declining number of people dying or in the hospital. Even if this virus burned out this fall, as many in the past simply have, will people still be in fear of a return? My guest on this Thursday edition of Truth to Ponder is Father John Peck. Fr. John is an Orthodox Priest who writes a blog which deals with the future of the Christian church in these changing times. Regardless of if it is the pandemic or political correctness, our culture and our lives will be changed.   Fr. John has numerous degrees and over 30 years of work and ministry experience.  He has even been an occasional writer for Charles Staley’s Training Systems website and numerous other projects.  So today I welcome Fr. John Peck to Truth to ponder with this question. How will the current riots and pandemic change our way of life and even the church in the United States?

The Politics of the Pandemic
Once again, Bob delves into “The Politics of a Pandemic,” and shares some readily available information that seems to get ignored in the medias push for panic at all costs. Of course, this virus can be very harmful, but what it really behind the numbers? Do Facemasks work, and what about gloves and goggles? Also, this past week Bob launched his new weekday radio show and Podcast called “Truth to Ponder”. For this weekend’s show, Bob has decided to “merge” both the Friday edition of “Truth to Ponder” with this weekend’s “Your Weekend Show.” If you wonder about what the real truth is about the numbers in this pandemic, you need to hear this weekend’s show.

Political Lies Costs Lives…
Blaming others for your problems is not an issue limited to just children or irresponsible adults, it is increasingly becoming a major issue with the political class. From finger pointing to outright lies, people are being deceived by those that they should be able to trust. Honesty has been compromised by politics and power.

It’s Déjà vu All Over Again
Baseball legend Yogi Berra was always known for some famous one liners. From “When you get to the fork in the road, take it,” to “It’s Déjà vu all over again” he was most entertaining. Today, however, our “Déjà vu all over again” event is not funny and is extremely dangerous to our nation. It is like the hoax that won’t stop giving, Russian Collusion. Yes, like a bad dream, the Russian Hoax is back, just in time for the election.
