Today on “Kresta in the Afternoon” – Apr. 2
Talking about the “things that matter most” on April 2
4:00 – “Heaven is For Real”
Heaven Is for Real is the true story of a four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who experienced heaven during emergency surgery. He talked about looking down to see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear. In heaven, Colton met his miscarried sister whom no one ever had told him about and his great-grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born. He shared impossible-to-know details about each. It’s now a major film in theaters everywhere April 16. We talk to the real life Todd Burpo, Colton’s father.
4:20 – What Works: Common Sense Solutions for a Stronger America
Solutions … not theories. Political progress … not political posturing. Faith…not unbelief. Instead of the constant jockeying for political advantage, columnist Cal Thomas is here to focus on what promotes the general welfare, regardless of which party or ideology gets the credit. Thomas probes and provides answers to questions like, Why must we constantly fight the same battles over and over? Why don’t we consult the past and use common sense in order to see that what others discovered long ago still works today? And why does present-day Washington too often look like the film Groundhog Day, with our elected officials waking up each day only to repeat identical talking points from previous days, months, and years? Cal joins us
5:00 – What Would Ronald Reagan Say About Current Issues We Face: Russia, Religious Liberty, Debt, and More?
Perhaps no other president’s name is invoked by politicians as much as Ronald Reagan’s. Every election, as presidential hopefuls jockey for the Republican nomination, each one claims to be a Reagan conservative. But are these candidates truly carrying on the mantle of Ronald Reagan, or are they abusing the memory of our great president? Paul Kengor, author of many books on Reagan, looks at the principles that lie at the crux of Reagan’s conservatism; Freedom, Faith, Family, Sanctity and Dignity of Human Life, American Exceptionalism, The Founders’ Wisdom and Vision, Lower Taxes, Limited Government, Peace Through Strength, Anti-Communism, and Belief in the Individual. We ask Paul to tells us what Reagan would do if he was facing examples of abuse of these principles we find today.
