their students and let their light shine. This program is a real encouragement to
Christian school teachers.
Apr 11 - Christ Has Risen (side B) -
Announcement: THE TOMB IS EMPTY! Christ is risen! This inspirational Easter program
celebrates the most glorious event in all of human history--the Resurrection of Jesus
Christ. A dramatic presentation with music. Our guest, Dr. Robert Simonds, is President of
Citizens for Excellence in Education. If the Resurrection is a fact of history, why isn't
it taught at school as a fact?
Apr 18 - Finding Inner Peace (side A) -We
love fascinating interviews and this is one of the best! It's about a guy who was involved
with the Mafia, murder and prostitution! Our guest Bill Fay, was born into a wealthy

booklet, How to Share Your Faith Without An Argument, has been distributed to over 4
Apr 25 - The Homeschool Journey (side B) -World-famous
Christian singer Michael Card and his wife Susan are homeschooling their four children.

May 2 - Voluntary School Prayer (side A) -One
atheist complains and nine black-robed men vote and 39 million American school children

David Barton, President of Wallbuilders, worked with Congressman Ernest Istook to propose
a voluntary school prayer amendment to our Constitution to be debated in Congress this
May 9 - What's Killing Our Children (side B) -Every
day five American children are killed by OTHER CHILDREN. What's killing our children? Sure
we can blame the parents and the media, but what about the schools? Our guest, Dr. W. R.
Coulson, was one of the men (along with Carl Rogers and Abe Maslow) who removed the
teaching of values from the classroom. Dr. Coulson has repented and warns us to return the
values based on the Bible to the classrooms to stop the killing.
May 16 - The Case Against the Bible (side A) -When
the Supreme Court ruled that public schools could no longer use the Bible, God removed His
blessings. Form the Viet Nam War to assassination and race riots, the sixties were a
turning point in our nation. On this program you can hear the actual oral argument
recorded during the 1963 Supreme Court (Abington vs. Schempp) case. Listen to how poorly
the Bible was defended and how fallacious the argument was to remove the Bible from
school. America will long feel the consequences of this landmark case, yet how casually it

Simonds explains why CEE is now calling for Christians to exit the public system and where
they will go.
June 6 - Smarter Schools (side B) -For those
Christians who say, "We can't leave public schools because we don't have the money
for private Christian school nor the time to homeschool." This program is for you.
John Westerman explains "smarter schools," a hybrid (a combination) between home
school and Christian school that's the answer for millions of working parents who realize
public schools no longer work. Also, Preacher Rob is a classic example of how brutal the
public system can be to parents. Incredibly, Preacher Rob was arrested (and hauled off the
jail) simply for handing out gospel tracts (off school property) and for praying with his
son at school.
June 13 - The Lie, Homosexuality (side A) -Mike
Trelow tells how his daughter Heather was humiliated by her lesbian teacher in front of
the class because she didn't agree with the lie that homosexuality is simply an
alternative lifestyle. Jewish psychiatrist Dr. Jeffery Satinover, author of Homo-sexulity
and the Politics of Truth, debunks the myths about homosexuality, such as they are born
"that way . . ." Also Paul Green of Minnesotans for Family Values.
June 20 - Moral Meltdown (side B) -Brief cut from Sir Winston
Churchill's speech mobilizing the British people for Hitler's imminent invasion. Hilmar
Von Campe, author of Moral Meltdown, was a German soldier in the Nazi war machine, but was
taken captive, then escaped (walked) across seven borders to freedom. He compares America
today to Germany before the war and warns us how vital our SALT is in preserving this
nation. Hilmar also tells how he became a born-again Christian.
June 27 - name (side A) - description
July 4 - American Independence (side B) -American
independence? The United Nations now controls American soil. The sovereignty of America is
being given away! Berit Kjos, author of Brave New Schools, says America is losing control
over our best national parks and becoming controlled as a UN World Heritage site. Gary
Norton, Viet Nam Ranger and high school assembly speaker, gives his impassioned
explanation of what the Pledge of Allegiance really means.
July 11 - A Writer's Workshop (side A) -This
is our first annual writer's workshop to encourage Christian writers to write and get
their work published. Robin Jones Gunn, author of the excellent Christie Miller Series,
motivates teens to remain virtuous through godly, Christian role models. Athena Dean
(owner of Winepress Publishing) and author of You Can Do It--A Guide to Christian Self
Publishing, tells why it's almost impossible for unknown authors to publish their work
through large publishing houses, but through "self publishing" they can see
their dream become a reality.
July 18 - SEX--What You Don't Know Can Kill You (side B)
-This is a classic program to give teens and adults to warn them of the dangers
of promiscuity. Dr. Joe Melheney is an OB-GYN and the Director of the Medical Institute
for Sexual Health, and author of a book by this title. He describes the myths of safe sex
and the myriad of new diseases that cause sterility and death. Abstinence is the only
July 25 - Fading Freedoms (side A) -The most
valuable possession of the Church isn't their buildings or budgets but the souls of their
children. Congress failed to pass the Religious Freedom Amendment. Where was the outcry?
David Barton, president of Wallbuilders and author of Original Intent, meets regularly
with Congressmen for Bible study and prayer. This is not the time for Christians to give
up. Pastor Garret Lear tells why the Religious Freedom Amendment is so important.
August 1 - Evidence for Creation II (side B) -The
National Academy of Sciences wants more evolution taught at school. Yet more students lose
their faith over evolution than any other teaching. Roger Oakland knows. His faith was
neutralized by evolution to the degree that he became a university biology/evolution
teacher convincing others to give up their faith in God. Amazingly God brought Roger
Oakland back; he was converted to creationism and became a Bible-believing Christian who
now speaks around the world on the evidence for creation.
August 8 - Chasing the Horizon (side A) -FUN!
This is our vacation special. Enjoy the adventures of Patrick Kinkade, teacher and author
of Chasing the Horizon. Patrick and his famous brother, the artist of light, Thomas
Kinkade, took a trip with their 80-year-old dad to Europe. This inspirational program is
filled with humor, music and intrigue, with picturesque cottages in Ireland, the pizza
with raw egg in Paris, and the memories of their dad at Normandy Beach.
August 15 - Teaching in Tough Times (side B) -There
is a crisis in American education! Most teachers, even in rural areas, are experiencing
more violence in their classrooms than ever before. Yet Judy Nichols, teacher and author
of Teaching in Tough Times--Encouragement for Today's Teacher wants to encourage teachers
through her fascinating true stories and wisdom. There's the violent, angry young man who
pushes a piece of glass to Judy's neck. There's the girl who had tremendous potential but
who gives it up when she gets pregnant. But the most fascinating story is her experience
at being held up at school at gun point.
August 22 - Is Public Education Necessary? (side A) -Historian
and Pastor Steven Wilkins tells us how the public schools initially began. The founders of
public schooling were very anti-Christian apostates. Nobody is neutral. We don't allow
humanists to interpret the Bible for us, why do we allow them to teach our children?
Public schools were started to take control away from the churches and other Christians
who educated the children. Why did Christians give up their God-given responsibility to
educate their children and send them off to the government schools?
August 29 - Principal Joe Clark (side B) -Many
people are tired of the liberals running our schools. The students had taken over Eastside
High, holding teachers hostage. Students brought guns, knives and drugs to class. Chaos
reigned. Eastside was a war zone. That is until the tough, former army drill instructor
and Christian, Joe Clark, took the job as principal. Joe Clark demonstrated how one man
can take the worst of the worst and make it 100% better. Joe Clark's story was so
fascinating, a movie--Lean On Me--was made about his amazing story.
Sept. 5 - School To Work (side A) - Ohio
School Board Member Diana Fessler, warns parents about the federal program called
school-to-work which will predetermine what career your child will have. This will affect
homeschoolers and Christian schools because without certification they will be unable to
go on to college and will have low-end jobs. Homeschoolers Linda and Tony Ross tell why
homeschooling is the best option for them.
Sept. 12 - Abandonment Theology (side B) -Some
people say the schools should be religiously neutral. Our nation's Founding Fathers didn't
believe this. Listen! 27 out of 56 of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence
held seminary degrees. All but two were fervent, committed Christians. They knew that the
Bible says, "The nations that forget God will be turned into hell"! There is no
neutrality. John Chalfant, author of Abandonment Theology, says those who say, "It's
all over for Christian America. The next step is the rapture" are helping the enemy
and doing a disservice to the cause of Christ, who would have us be salt and light in our
culture. It's time for Christians to awaken and catch the vision and take back America!
Sept. 19 - Saving Schools or Saving Students? (side A)
-Should religion be part of public schools or does religion belong only at church
and home? Superintendent of Pearl, MS, Schools Bill Dodson says religion should be
encouraged at school to reduce violence and improve morals. Also Tom Landess, media
spokesman for the South Carolina Attorney General's office, says the Ten Commandments can
be displayed at school! But Dr. Robert Simonds, President of Citizens for Excellence in
Education (former teacher/principal and pastor) says it's all just image-making! Dr.
Simonds thinks it's better to remove Christian kids from public school.
Sept. 26 - Crisis in the Classroom (side B) -To
encourage Christians to write, we held our summer writer's contest. The winner is Rochelle
Walls of Palm Springs! Second place is Gary Hedin who tells poignant stories of his father
and their experiences in the backwoods of Minnesota. Phyllis Schlafly, Founder/President
of Eagle Forum and producer of the video "Crisis in the Classroom," tells the
importance of the November elections. "All that's necessary for evil to triumph is
for good men to do nothing." If we don't do anything, we are responsible for the
Oct. 3 - Y2K When the Chips Are Down (side A) - Our most
requested program ever! We've sent out literally hundreds of this program! Imagine no
electricity, no water, no phone, no heat on a cold January night. All because of a
computer mistake! (Y2K=Year 2000). Will it be simply a "brown out?" or a
"melt down?" Michael Hyatt, author of The Millennium Bug--How to Survive the
Coming Chaos, is the nation's leading Y2K consumer advocate who explains in non-technical
language why it's highly unlikely the Y2K problem will get fixed in time and why YOU need
to make preparations. Warnings are coming from high level government and business leaders.
The Federal Reserve is putting an additional $50 billion cash into circulation because
they are anticipating a run on the banks. It's serious but the Lord is our safety.
Oct. 10 - Y2K When the Chips Are Down, Part 2 (side B) -
Guests include Michael Hyatt; Paul Philpot, computer expert; Wallace Reynolds, Salt River
Oct. 17 - The Spread of Sex Ed (side A) - Sex ed isn't just
taught in health class, but now will be in language arts, consumer science (home ec),
science, PE, social studies . . . Sherry Vanderploeg is a mother and public school teacher
whose research on sex ed (for Concerned Women for America) so shook her up she pulled her
kids out of public school, and wants to warn other parents. Christian parent Tom McKinney
pulled his kids out of public school also and tells parents why this should concern
parents! Sex ed without values is a recipe for immorality.
Oct. 24 - Politics, Preachers & Pupils (side B) -
Everything in education is controlled through politics--from the curriculum, set by the
elected board, to the state and federal programs--politics controls public education.
Pastor Tom Hatley of Immanuel Baptist Church in Rogers, Arkansas, held up his Bible and
said, "If you are not PRO-LIFE you need to question your Christianity." Many
families left his church because of his strong stand for LIFE, but one person, a
physician, decided to run for the U.S. Senate because of the pro-life message. The church
has regained the number of members it lost but now plays a vital role in the community and
Oct. 31 - The Gift of Government (side A) - Election day
program. This election will determine what kind of country we want, and the Impeachment of
the President. Some say the Clinton issue isjust about sex (Just like Watergate was about
picking a lock and just like the Boston Tea Party was just about tea). With the scandal
over Bill Clinton, who could have ever guessed Newt would be GONE and Clinton would remain
in office? Some suggest Gore will run with Hilliary Rodham Clinton in 2000. But how does
this sound: Rodham and Gore-morrah . . . in 2000". Christian Statesman of the Year
award Sen. Dan Coates of Indiana is a champion for giving parents a choice in education.
Senator Coates speakes of the importance of Christians being involved in politics. Other
Guest: Garrett Lear, pastor, political activist and radio commentator in New Hampshire.
Nov. 7 - Welcome Home (side B) - The most precious words a
soldier stationed away from home longs to hear are WELCOME HOME! The words were not said
to many veterans from Viet Nam. This is a Veterans Day special program. One of the most
requested guests we've had is Viet Nam Ranger Gary Horton who recites some very
inspirational poems, such as Freedom isn't Free. . . . Gary Horton speaks at public high
school assemblies all over the nation. Bill Lyon was stationed at Pearl Harbor the day it
was bombed and saw the smile on the Japanese pilot's face as he flew overhead dropping
Nov. 14 - Darwin's Leap of Faith (side A) - Is evolution
compatible with the Bible? Many public school textbooks say evolution is a scientific
FACT--and no longer just a theory. John Weldon, author of more than 75 books including
Darwin's Leap of Faith--Exposing the False Religion of Evolution, cites such sources as
Dr. Isaac Manly (Harvard Medical School) who said, "Recent scientific evidence is a
shocking rebuttal to the theory of evolution. There is no evidence of any kind for this
theory." If the majority of the public (85%) favor teaching BOTH evolution and
creation, why do a few of the atheists/humanists dictate that only one theory be taught in
Nov. 21 - Dear America (side B) - Fourth grade public school
teacher Connie Ricks, reads from Dear America, A Journey to the New World, The Diary of
Remember Patience Whipple, a diary of a 12-year-old girl who was a passenger on the
Mayflower in 1620, to give her class (and us) an appreciation for what tremendous
sacrifice our forefathers went through in coming to this land.
Tim Hansel, author of You Gotta' Keep Dancin', fell in a mountain climbing expedition
and has been experiencing constant, severe, back pain for the past 25 years, tells how
much he appreciates life. Many would think Tim would be bitter about life, but he loves
and appreciates every precious minute. Encouraging program.
Nov. 28 - Exodus Update (side A) - Just as the Israelites
made the great Exodus from Egypt so Christians today are making a great Exodus from
government schools. Exodus 2000 is the church taking back their own church children to
fulfilling Christ's Great Commission to make disciples and TEACH them. . . (Mt. 28:19).
Desert Storm war hero and college chaplain Ray Moore says every church is a school. We
have the buildings, the children and the teachers in our own churches.
Dec. 5 - Every Church a School (side B) - The future of the
church is in the schools. Christian youth are becoming an endangered species! Think of
this--90% of our Christian students are in humanistic schools, and only 3% of the churches
have schools. Is it any wonder 70% of the Christians don't return to church two years
after graduation? Marty Angel, director of Every Church a School Foundation, says giving
tax credits to taxpayers so they can donate money for scholarships is better than
vouchers. Tax credits mean taxpayers give money, a scholarship, to help a student go to
any school of his choice, including Christian and even home schools, instead of giving
their money to taxes. This revolutionary concept will change the future of the church.
Dec. 12 - Mary Did You Know? (side A) - Songwriter and singer
Mark Lowry wrote, "Mary did you know when you kiss your little baby, you've kissed
the face of God?" "The child that you've delivered will soon deliver you."
What was Jesus like at age five? Award winning author Walter Wangerin tells a bedtime
story in his new book, Mary's First Christmas. In this story, Mary (5 years after the
birth the Jesus) tells the 5-year-old Jesus about the first Christmas and the miraculous
events surrounding his birth; and about Mary's husband Joseph.
Dec. 19 - Keeping Christ in Christmas (side B) - Is it OK for
a real Christian to have a Christmas tree? How about Christmas cards? Was Jesus even born
on Dec. 25th? How can we keep Christ in Christmas? Bestselling author and youth evangelist
Steve Russo, author of "Keeping Christ in Christmas" answers many questions
about customs in Christmas and ways to keep Christ in Christmas.
Dec. 26 - The Late Great 1998 (side A) - Highlights from the
three most popular 1998 programs. (We won't know side B of this tape until next quarter's
Jan 2 - Perfect Vision (side B) - How can you find a purpose
in your life? Without a purpose, or a vision for life, God's people perish. God's people
are not meant to lead mediocre lives, but are challenged to live up to their full
potential in Christ. Moses was a success in God's sight and one of the greatest leaders
the world has ever seen. Dr. Robert Winer (neurologist) uses Moses as an example in his
book The Ten Commandments for Success--How to Survive the Coming Chaos.
Jan 9 - A Christian Worldview (side A) - Christian students
in public schools are failing to develop a Christian worldview! Recent testing shows
Christian students attending public schools have been tested for their
"worldview" by Daniel Smithwick on the PEERS Test. His results show a DRASTIC
change in Christian students thinking, going from "Christian-moderate" ten years
ago to now "socialist-humanist!" This is shocking. That's why pastors like
Pastor Vic Michels are starting Christian schools. Also parent Linda Rooper.
Jan 16 - God's Love Gives Life (side B) - Pro-life special!
The incredible conversion of Eric Harrah, an abortion clinic owner and homosexual, who
beat up pro-life demonstrators in front of his clinic until former Penn State football
player Steve Stupar showed up and said to Eric, "You prayed for me to be here--here I
am." Eric had prayed that God would send someone to show him that what he was doing
was wrong. Steve Stupar, through the power of the Word of Knowledge, revealed minute
details of Eric's life--showing God's knowledge and offering forgiveness for Eric.
Jan 23 - From Beetles to Eagles (side A) - Motivational
speaker (at high school assemblies) Gary Horton tells a dramatic story of how eagles
symbolize the character of God, in loyalty, fearlessness and power. Just as opposing winds
help an eagle to fly higher, so adversity can benefit us by producing strength and
character within us. Dr. Dwane Gish of the Institute for Creation Research describes the
bombardier beetle and how it would be impossible for it to have evolved.
Jan 30 - Sodom Had No Bible (side B) - Sally, a parent who
doesn't want to give her last name, has a fourth grade son whose teacher is a lesbian and
pregnant through artificial insemination. Can children be recruited into homosexuality? Or
is it inborn? Guests include: Dr. W.R. Coulson; parent Michael Chisano; Scott Lively,
author of 7 Steps to Recruit-Proof Your Child; and Dr. Paul Cameron (Family Research
Institute) who has compelling research showing homosexuality isn't innate and therefore
can be prevented.
Feb 6 - School Chooses Careers (side A) - The government is
determining the careers of our children. "School to Work" requires schools to
help determine the type of work children will do. We don't need to wait to see the results
of "school to work"--take a look at Russia or China. Peg Luksik, one of the
nation's foremost authorities on new trends in education, is a veteran educator and author
of Outcome Based Education--the State's Assault on Our Children's Values.
Feb 13 - Fulfillment in Christ (side B) - Never in history
have so many Christians (other than today in America) been so impotent to impact a
culture. Could it be because they lack a purpose for their part in the Body of Christ?
Successful businessman and international speaker, Todd Duncan (author of The Power to Be
Your Best) says, "The fulfilled Christian life is letting the Lord be Lord over all
of your life." Relationships are vitally important to a fulfilled life.
Feb 20 - Christian Principals (side A) - "A federal
judge is (trying) to rewrite the Constitution," says strong Christian principal, Gary
Carlyle who has been punished (training sessions) for allowing "religious"
activities in his school. A "prayer monitor"--who is a "Baptist
preacher"--monitors all school activities for religious expression. Christian
principal Dr. Willard Robinson, author of the Beverly Hills Principal describes how he won
over the anti-war protesters. Also, how the Jesus Movement started through Chuck Smith of
Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.
Feb 27 - Research Based Phonics (side B) - We spend billions
on education yet nearly half of adult Americans are functionally illiterate. The problem
is with the way we teach reading. Phonics works! That's why 27 states are passing laws
mandating phonics be taught. It's amazing that it takes a law to force educators to teach
what works. Parents can't wait for the phonics laws. They need to make sure their child
learns to read. Master teacher and reading specialist Jeannie Eller says, "There's no
reason for anyone who can see, hear and talk not to learn to read by the first
Mar 6 - Tuition Tax Credits (side A) - Gallup polls say more
than 52% of parents would take their children out of public school and put them into
private schools if they had the money. Here's the plan to give them the money. Tuition tax
credits have been approved by the courts. Patch Blakely (Association of Classical and
Christian Schools) and Marty Angel (Every Church a School Foundation), say tax credits are
better than vouchers since they eliminate government control. Steve Yarborough discusses
the Arizona Supreme Court upholding the constitutionality of the tax credits.
Mar 13 - Christian Law (side B) - Not too long ago it was
against the law to operate a Christian school. But one man took that case all the way to
the U.S. Supreme Court and won the right for Christian schools to exist. That man was
David Gibbs, a pioneer in Christian law and founder of the Christian Law Association. Now
his son David Gibbs III is continuing the struggle for religious freedom. God lays the
responsibility for the future of America at the feet of the Christians.
Mar 20 - Facing Eternity Facing Eternity--Facing Finals! (side A)
- Of all the thought-provoking programs we've made there is none more important for you
than how you will face eternity. Former Riverside police officer, Rick Albee, describes
the look in a man's eyes that he has shot just before the man enters eternity without
Christ--absolute terror. Pastor Paul and Margaret Vaughan, missionaries to Africa, are
showing the power of God in overcoming the fear of death through terminal cancer and
kidney failure. This powerful program is excellent for witnessing.
Mar 27 - Changing Trends (side B) - Textbooks have been
sanitized of any mention of God and the role of Christians in our history. The man who
conducted the most exhaustive research of America's textbooks is Dr. Paul Vitz, a
professor at New York University who sees the trends on campus. After decades of liberal
indoctrination in our schools there is a strong trend back to religion. Liberal ideas have
been tried and found they didn't give what they promised.
