What are some of the top news stories of 2019 from a biblical Christian worldview? David and Crash discuss as many as possible on today’s podcast! From all of us at Stand Up for the Truth and Q90 FM, have a great new year! 2020… Wow!

Olive Tree Ministries founder, author Jan Markell states:

Another year draws to a close, and anyone who is discerning the times, knows that headlines today are a herald of His coming. …The spirit of Antichrist is alive and well; Breaking news can be distressing or it can be a warning, as Bible prophecy warns us in advance of things to come. The news cycle really didn’t disappoint in 2019, although few sources report things accurately!

For a Breakpoint commentary on moral relativism and the drag queen movement, John Stonestreet stated:

Ultimately, we’re witnessing the de-civilizing of our society, a sickening illustration of how bad ideas create victims. No culture wakes up and just decides to exploit its children, but the decades-long process of re-defining human beings according to our sexual ideologies rather than their God-designed dignity is what brought us here.
