Author: Stand Up For The Truth

Carl Gallups: ‘Yoking ourselves to Baal,’ Agenda 2030, and ‘Big Brother’

Today we take a look at several Old Testament Scriptures revealing how God deals with people. Even though many prophecies were unique or specific for the nation of Israel, there are principles that we can learn and patterns of behavior we can avoid. We discuss idolatry in America, spiritual warfare including witches casting spells on President Trump, as well as the dangers of government spying on private citizens and its ability to hack any of our technological devices.

On the program is author, pastor, and prophecy expert, Carl Gallups. He teaches and comments on Israel and the book of Numbers, and explains how we may be following in their footsteps by going after false gods here in America.

Using “The Shack” for God’s Glory

The Shack is a very controversial book within professing Christian circles that is now out in a movie that many professing Christians are excited to see. And Christian churches, ministries and radio stations (not ours) are promoting it heavily under the guise that it can be a tool to share the gospel with unsaved friends. But there is a slight problem: the true gospel does not even remotely appear in the book or the movie.

This morning we discuss The Shack with James Walker of Watchman.org and look at the life and theology of the author, comparing the movie’s theology with the Word of God. And we will attempt to equip you to accomplish what the promoters are claiming the movie can do: reach the lost with the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.

Expectations of the Christian Life

What should committed disciples of Jesus Christ expect out of this life? Well, these days that often depends on which Christian teacher you follow. If you follow a pastor or teacher who preaches the “prosperity gospel” your expectations might be great health, tremendous wealth and a life without problems. If you follow a pastor who is constantly reminding you just how depraved and wicked you are–even after God’s saving grace–well you probably expect nothing but a life of misery and constant chastisement from God.

The truth of the life followers of Jesus Christ should expect is of course contained in God’s Word–the only source for eternal truth. This morning we search the scriptures to get a picture of what the life of a true Christian should look like, and what reasonable expectations are for our lives in a fallen world. Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch ranch joins us.

Reasons for Hope Despite Increased Attacks on Bible

Already in the first week of this month, we’ve heard about stories that reinforce the fact our culture, our country, and this world just seem to keep spinning out of control. The truth however, is that the God of the universe and author of Creation has never left his throne.

Disney is getting backlash over its recent promotion of LGBTQ agenda which features a gay moment in the new Beauty and the Beast, Satanists are seeking religious rights in America, a UK court considers reading the Bible out loud a criminal matter, and the radical Alinsky left in this nation is keeping its foot on the gas pedal of their anti-American agenda. There’s so much going on we must get back to the basics and remember who is in control.

Though the world and things around us appear to be falling apart, the Bible teaches us things are actually falling into place. Many solid pastors and ministry leaders in the committed remnant of true believers remind us we are living in the greatest times of biblical prophecy since Jesus walked the earth. We must hold loosely the things of this world as we set our hearts and minds on things above.

Today’s guest is Carl Kerby, the President of Reasons for Hope Inc. Carl shares his extensive knowledge and understanding of God’s creation. Providing answers for difficult questions, Carl inspires people to dig deeply into God’s Word to debunk the lies and myths that attack the Christian faith.

Destroying America on Purpose

On today’s program we analyze the spiritual, financial and moral condition of the United States of America, a nation founded upon biblical teachings and moral Law. We discuss just how far we have fallen from our beginnings and how we have allowed enemies of America to infiltrate our government and undermine the Christian foundation of our nation.

Let’s look at Saul Alinsky’s infamous Rules for Radicals and the Cloward-Piven Strategy; both have been used to undermine our nation and set us up for a tremendous and perhaps a fatal national fall. Just how close are we, can this trend be reversed, and what are Christians to do about all this?

America’s Biggest Problem: Seeker-Friendly Churches

This morning we discuss an article by Pastor Bryan Fischer who points the finger squarely at the professing Christian Church in America for our nation’s decline in morality and biblical values. The Christian Church is supposed to be the moral and spiritual conscience of our nation, challenging government and people when they stray from God. Instead, Fischer thinks it has become the problem rather than the solution. We also check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action to discuss the spiritual and political climate in Madison regarding life, marriage, and religious freedom issues. From today’s interview with Julaine: “Law is always downstream of culture.”

Is Public Education Out of Control?

This morning we look at the continuing deterioration of our public education system. We cover stories about kindergarten children being indoctrinated in the LGBT movement, Universities teaching courses on “White privilege,” and a story by Linda Harvey at WND with some concerns about President Trump’s Secretary of Education Betsy Devos, wondering if she has sold out to the LGBT movement.

We also check in with Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom reporting from the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) convention. We’ll discuss Cosmopolitan Magazine’s ‘porn,’ and of course, the Oscars and the fact that many Hollywood celebrities have no idea how out of touch they are with regular Americans.

The Three Stages of Islamic Jihad

America and the Christian churches in it are rapidly reaching a crossroad when it comes to Islam. Islam in its teachings calls for world wide domination and submission to Allah, the false god of Islam. Unbelievers, those Islam refers to as “infidels,” either convert to Islam, face very punitive restrictions, or sometimes they are put to death. This is the “jihad” taught in the Quran. Jihad has three unique stages, each one building power upon the other. As Muslim presence increases, pressure is applied on a nation and its people to conform or face dire consequences. Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer joins us this morning. to explain what’s happening in the states and what Christians can do.

A Surprise From Hollywood?

This morning we cover a fascinating story from World Net Daily about Hollywood actually planning to release a movie about how a homosexual walked away from the gay lifestyle and became a Christian pastor. And it is not some low grade production with “B List” actors. It stars a couple of prominent actors–one of whom is an open homosexual and activist for the movement.

In our first segment we check in with William Murray of The Religious Freedom Coalition, looking at the plight of Christians in Egypt and Nigeria, along with how Christians are being left behind in the wave of immigration hitting Europe and America.

Bringing Sanity Back to Education

The Trump Administration’s Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it would drop an order from President Obama threatening to punish schools that did not allow transgender students to use bathrooms or shower facilities that coincide with their “perceived gender,” returning at least a shred of sanity to public education. But the battle for religious freedom and sanity marches on. This morning we discuss the story of a Christian business owner who was threatened by the U.S. Department of Agriculture because he dared have articles about the biblical view on marriage in his company’s break room.

In our first two segments today we talk about the “Church Growth Movement” with author and Pastor Gary Gilley who has studied this movement at length. First, what is the role of the church and its mission according to the Bible? Is bigger always better? What are the advantages and disadvantages of belonging to a mega-church? What kind of church is best and more conducive to growth for a young Christian? check out the podcast for plenty of wisdom from Pastor Gilley.
