+  What ESPN’s Lance Armstrong Film Taught Me About Confession

  • Description: The COVID cancellation of professional sports has forced ESPN and other sports networks to develop other programming, and ESPN has begun airing documentaries focusing on some of the biggest figures and stories in the world of sports. A recent special focused on the life and career of Lance Armstrong, who at one time was among the most admired athletes in the world. But his entire career was built on a lie – he was doping illegally, and he denied allegations of cheating throughout his career. There is a lesson to be learned from this – we cannot hide from our sin, and all sin affects others. We’ll discuss it with Dr. Luke Arredondo.

+  Bombshell Report: China Forces Abortions and Sterilizations on Hundreds of Thousands in Xinjiang

  • Description: More and more data is arising that shows the deplorable ways China treats its ethnic and religious minorities. The Chinese government is taking draconian measures to slash birth rates among Uighurs and other minorities as part of a sweeping campaign to curb its Muslim population, even as it encourages some of the country’s Han majority to have more children. And in another part of the country, the government has deprived elderly Christians of government subsidiaries unless they renounce their faith. We’ll take a look with Reggie Littlejohn.
