The ex-JW-ex-odus: Fred interviews former Jehovah Witness Perry Little

Perry Little, organizer of the ex-JW conference in San Antonio (which was Bob's last public appearance) joins Fred on air to give his heartbreaking testimony. The JW cult rules through fear and intimidation, condemning anyone who leaves to a life without love from their very own families. Fred and Perry talk through some new-testament verses (including 1 John 4:18, Romans 6:7, Hebrews 9:27) and how they relate to the cult. See more at kgov.com/cults. Today's Resouce: Secret Recording- Enyart Vs. Jehovah's Witnesses Secretly Recorded: Hear Bob Enyart talk to Jehovah's Witnesses in the home of a BEL listener through a secretly recorded audio record of what transpired. Bob takes two approaches. First, the Jehovah's Witnesses have officially issued false prophecies, including in 1921, that "Millions now living will never die." And secondly, Bob presents a surprising alternative method of demonstrating from the Scriptures the deity of Jesus Christ. Jehovah's Witnesses Are False Prophets: In a classic example of a false prophet, in 1921 the leader of the Jehovah's Witnesses, "Judge Rutherford" published this text, with the claim emblazoned on the cover, that "millions now living will never die"... Hear Bob explain this to these Jehovah's witnesses.

A giant on the world stage, Gen. Colin L. Powell found his calling in the ROTC program as an undergraduate at The City College of New York. Powell led the Cadet Corps on the Harlem campus, and upon graduating with a Geology degree in 1958, received his commission as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. The first Black American appointed to a series of U.S. government leadership roles culminating in Secretary of State, Powell also spent the last several decades of his life deeply involved with the school he called the center of his life. As news of Powell's passing circles the world, this episode captures the tributes of his closest colleagues at CCNY: President Vincent Boudreau, Vice President Dee Dee Mozeleski, and Dean Andrew Rich of the Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership. Joining them is Trevor Houser, a 2006 graduate and an alumnus of the inaugural cohort of Colin Powell Fellows, a program exemplifying the visionary pathways that Powell initiated and that today inspire a legacy of student success across CCNY. Host: CCNY President Vincent Boudreau Guests: Andrew Rich, Richard J. Henley and Susan L. Davis Dean of CCNY's Colin Powell School for Civic and Global Leadership; Trevor Houser, Partner, Rhodium Group, CCNY Class of 2006, graduate of CCNY's inaugural cohort of Colin Powell Fellows; Dee Dee Mozeleski, Vice President of CCNY's Office of Institutional Advancement and Communications, Executive Director of the Foundation for City College, Senior Adviser to the President of City College.

The Shared Properties of Jesus and Light

RSR host Fred Williams discusses the remarkable similarities between Jesus' holy attributes and the physical attributes of light. In scripture, light is often attributed to and interchangeable with Jesus. Fred shares both old and new testament verses that refer to God in ways that are very similar to light, such as how light radiates, glows, and provides energy (Exodus 33:20, Ezekiel 1:27 ,etc). Both Jesus and light are also pure and sustain life. Jesus often compared Himself to Light (John 8:12, John 1:8-9, etc). Most notably, light is not a duality as the secular scientist believe, but is in truth a Triality as Bob insightfully demonstrated in a previous RSR show (see rsr.org/triality). Other shared characteristics of Jesus and light include: -Light dispels darkness and cannot be corrupted. -Light leads you to the truth. -Light is communication by written words & symbols to our minds. -Light is color, revealing incredible beauty around us. -Light is warmth, giving comfort. Today's Resource: Genesis - Creation by Bob EnyartA rock cannot make itself and a fire cannot burn forever. Matter cannot come from non-matter and a perpetual motion machine cannot exist. Therefore, the universe could not have made itself from nothing, nor could it have always been moving, churning, working, and burning. Another way to state these first two laws of thermodynamics is that the physical universe must have had a supernatural Creator sometime in the recent past. This study presents the scientifically compelling Genesis story. Of all men, Christians more than any are able to weave the latest findings into our understanding of the fabric of the universe. Since God created the physical universe, good science reveals God. And while some say that you cannot prove the existence of God, the Bible tells us that the clear evidence of His personal, powerful, and eternal existence is manifest through the creation! The Bible tells the story of human history and the work of God for His creation, and as all good stories do, this story has a plot! Every story has a plot, and a story's details can be confusing unless you understand its overview. Grasping the big picture will help you reconcile many seemingly contradictory, and controversial Bible passages. Achieve a fuller understanding of God's plan from Genesis to Revelation and equip yourself to share God's Word with friends and family. Consider listening to The Plot series based on Bob's book of the same title. Then enjoy Bob's other book studies and see how the big picture can help you to better know the living God.

We've all heard stories about fantastical creatures that people swear they've seen and have evidence of but can never be confirmed. Think Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster. Mermaids or the Kraken. While there's no evidence backing the existence of these creatures, either in present day or at any point in the past, there must be a reason why such legends were created in the first place. In most cases, the legend in grounded in fact. While Third Pod might be on a break, Halloween comes around the same time every season. So this year we're bringing you four stories from scientists who know a little something about the real-life animals that inspired these legendary creatures. In this first episode, we chatted with Cristina Brito, Director of the Centre for Overseas History at University of Lisbon, about the connections between mermaids and manatees, as well as Ryan Haupt, Ph.D candidate, Department of Geology and Geophysics, University of Wyoming and co-host of the podcast Science…sort of, about the connections between Bigfoot and prehistoric giant sloths.

Have you ever wondered how we can earn about the age of rocks and what that information can enlighten us on? By using the temperature and other strategies, we can gain a clearer picture of just what happened when these rocks were formed. Listen in to learn: The limitations of radiometric dating The sweet spot for dating a rock Why rain can interfere with the process Peter Copeland, a Professor of Geology and Thermochronology at the University of Houston, shares his work dating minerals and examining the thermochronology of rocks. Radiometric dating is one of the primary tools used to learn the history of the world we live on. By using isotopes of Potassium and Uranium, their half-lives can be examined to determine the date they were formed and what that reveals about the world at that time. Since half-lives are not obstructed by various factors faced by ancient samples of a rock or mineral, this strategy is the best possible method of study. While this is not the only way and the other primary method only requires a microscope, it remains one of the most accurate and reliable. https://www.uh.edu/nsm/earth-atmospheric/people/faculty/peter-copeland/ Episode also available on Apple Podcast: http://apple.co/30PvU9C

Today, we will explore the remarkable field of ocean discovery that Bob Ballard helped to advance, and to a greater extent, popularize for current and future generations. Ocean Mapping, Exploration and Characterization has big blue economy implications. Mapping, for example, is critical for fisheries management, offshore energy development, and safe marine transportation. Exploration and characterization support identification of sources for critical minerals, energy, and regions requiring conservation.

Blessing Bob's Wife Cheryl (see below)On today's show, Fred Williams and Doug McBruney discuss Bob's passing. As the RSR/BEL family is going through this difficult time, we remind you to do right, and risk the consequences! Blessing Bob's Wife, Cheryl Pastor Bob Enyart, known for his unwavering Pro-Life work, daily radio show, and Christian ministry, has gone to be with the Lord at the age of 62. After a week of caring for his wife, who had recently contracted COVID-19, Bob was admitted into Lutheran Medical Center, where he passed away. We are all devastated by his loss. Everyone who knew Bob, knew that his dedication to serving the Lord and serving others was immense. Always willing to drop everything, and run to help anyone in need. Even as he neared death, he cared for his family. He honored the Lord his entire life, bringing untold thousands to Christ. Before heading into the ICU, the last thing Bob reminded us was that, "God is good, all the time." His death leaves his wife, Cheryl, in a difficult financial situation. She's unprepared for the high cost of a funeral service, medical bills, and living expenses. We want to give Bob the memorial he deserves, and to bless his wife by removing any financial burdens. We humbly ask for your prayers and financial support, if you are at all able. We are so very grateful for every donation during this difficult time.

Camel shadows from overhead. Used by permission (c) George Steinmetz Hello to the Bob Enyart Live family. It is with a heavy heart that we announce, as some of you may have heard, that Bob went to be with the Lord on Sunday Sept 12th, 2021. If you'd like to celebrate Bob's life, you're welcome to join his family at the memorial service on Saturday Oct 2nd, at Applewood Baptist Church in Wheat Ridge Colorado. Doors will be opening at 9:00 a.m. If you'd like to support the family, please pray for comfort and healing. And if you'd like to help financially, please donate at kgov.com/store.  We'll be back with more news about the future of Bob Enyart Live soon. For now, enjoy this rerun of a recent episode. God bless. Press release: Pastor Bob Enyart, Known for His Unwavering Pro-Life Work, Daily Radio Show, and Christian Ministry Has Gone To Be With the Lord at the Age of 62 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ARVADA, Colorado, September 14, 2021 – Following a week of caring for his wife Cheryl's COVID-19 symptoms, Bob Enyart checked into Lutheran Medical Center in Wheat Ridge, Colorado on August 28, 2021. While in the hospital, his condition declined and he was eventually moved to the ICU with pneumonia on September 1. Despite the efforts of the hospital staff, his health continued to deteriorate and he eventually died on Sunday, September 12 at 3:00 p.m. Pastor Bob became a follower of Jesus in his youth and his most enduring legacy will be those he led to Christ. Teaching the truth of God's Word was Bob's foremost dedication. As pastor of Denver Bible Church, he would sometimes say, “If I could ask God any question and receive a response, I'd ask, ‘which of my teachings are wrong?'” He loved to study and debate theology. To Bob, ascertaining truth was paramount.  He garnered nationwide recognition with his television show “Bob Enyart Live,” which ran from 1994 until 1999. Though his program later shifted to radio, Bob's unique style and extraordinary message remained the same. He tirelessly shared the message that this generation is dying in sin and needs the Savior, abortion is murder, and that people should flee government schools, abandon immorality, abhor what is evil, and love one another. Over the years, Bob was often asked to participate on other programs including Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, where he jumped at the opportunity to mock Jimmy Kimmel, Larry Flynt and others to their faces. He was a tireless worker, and despite the importance of his work, would often drop everything at a moment's notice to help someone in need. Still, his proudest achievement was that of his role as husband and father. He is survived by his wife Cheryl, their seven sons, three daughters-in-law, seven grandchildren, his mother, two brothers, one sister, and countless nieces, nephews, and extended family. He was surrounded by his loved ones who fought his illness with him until the very end. Read more about Bob here, from his favorite news site, LifeSiteNews.com! *Today we present the return of a classic show. Update: ICR's Acts & Facts gives a shout out to RSR in their current March 2019 issue where Brian Thomas writes about our online spreadsheet, List of Biomaterial Fossil Papers (maintained), "Real Science Radio host Bob Enyart and I continue to curate that growing list online." Thank you Brian, Henry Morris III, and everyone at the Institute for Creation Research!   Back when Real Science Radio needed to correct National Geographic's fake news story that camels had not yet been domesticated in the time of Abraham (rsr.org/camels), we turned to Archaeologist Titus Kennedy. Tonight Dr. Kennedy will speak at our Rocky Mountain Creation Fellowship (7 p.m. at Littleton Baptist Church at 1400 W. Caley Avenue) on the archaeology of the Exodus. On today's program, Bob Enyart asks Titus about the historicity of the Gospels; the earliest ancient fragments; the Roman Empire's habit of taking a census by requiring citizens to travel to their hometowns; the accusation that Bethlehem wasn't inhabited back then, around, say, the year 0; the historic significance of the Dead Sea Scrolls; whether Herod's reputation challenges Luke's record of the massacre of the innocents; Newseek's Nina Burleigh and her admission that bias against the Bible could blind archaeologists to the evidence; the pros and cons of Constantine's mother Helena, not unlike a guy named Ron Wyatt, who seemed to find everything she went looking for. * Carbon dating the Isaiah Scroll: Was it written approximately 300 BC or even 330 BC?

Above the Arctic Circle, much of the land is underlaid by permafrost. But climate change is causing it to thaw. This is not good news for the planet.  As the carbon rich ground warms, microbes start to feast… releasing greenhouse gases that will warm the Earth even more. Another possible downside was envisioned by a science-fiction author. Could ancient pathogens–released from the permafrost's icy grip–cause new pandemics? We investigate what happens when the far north defrosts. Guests: Jacquelyn Gill – Associate professor of paleoecology at the University of Maine.

There is no doubt that natural disasters suck. However, sometimes it seems as if nature has a way to seemingly have a system of checks and balances for such destructive events. Or it may seem like pure happenstance, in that they are random and disordered. Humans have offered various sacrifices throughout history to appease the Gods they prayed to as if it were their fault. However, as the age of reason dawned, scientific evidence was substituted for divine intervention. As we see, natural disasters are complex and dynamic and are caused by not just natural forces but sometimes sociological factors, too. We see human greed and corrupt governments absorb food and medical supplies that only exacerbate natural disasters. Topics include Avalanches, Landslides, Liquefaction, Famine, Drought, Earthquakes, Politics, and Plagues. So strap in and enjoy the ride through Earth's history of natural disasters.
