The two stories we are covering today: What should our reaction be to the violence in Ferguson and other cities? And are there parallels to history repeating itself from decades past? We’re going try to put things in perspective as we’re watching a new era of lawlessness unfold. Will this be the new normal?

Up first, we’re checking in with our guest, William J. Murray, who just returned from Auschwitz and Birkenau, where a few decades ago a total of 1.5 million human beings walked through these gates to a Hell on Earth. William is a strong advocate for persecuted Christians in America and around the world. Murray’s Religious Freedom Coalition is a non-profit organization that takes on on issues related to aiding Christians in Islamic and Communist nations. Check out his Christmas for Refugees program:

Stand Up For The Truth is a radio and online ministry that covers news of the day, trends in the church and theological issues that Christians deal with and talk about every day, and we give you a place to be educated, equipped and connected to help you discern along the way. But most importantly, we point you to Christ Jesus as our Savior, and His Word – the Scriptures, as the truth that you can depend on. In fact, you should filter everything you read, hear and consume as a believer – including what you find on this program – through the Scriptures to see if it lines up.
