Grounding our youth in truth

We often cite statistics and studies that show up to 80% of youth who call themselves Christians will probably leave the church once they go off to College. While this is a sad and alarming finding, what is being done about it? Who is trying to help parents and the church keep our Christian youth […]

A Christian in America – A Coming Dilemma?

Today we discuss what it means to be a Christian faithful to God, living in a nation that seems to be falling away from God and His ways.  Being a true Christian in America used to be simpler.  Our nation, while far from perfect, at least tried to live by the laws and principles of […]

Raising the Bar on Salvation?

I had an interesting conversation with a Christian brother a few weeks ago.  He is adamant on his beliefs on “sola scriptura” and frustrated that some Christians seem to be “raising the bar” on salvation by preaching what he calls a “works based salvation” through ideas like the Social Justice Movement. The conversation moved on […]

Suffering and Prayer in the Christian Life

Today we look at two important, yet often misunderstood doctrines in the Bible: Suffering and Prayer. No one really wants to suffer.  We would all prefer a life of comfort.  But the Bible warns us that suffering is an important part of the Christian life–and that when it happens we should rejoice!   Tough teaching indeed. […]

Quick: Define “Christian”

OK, I’ll make a statement and you fill in the blank with the first words that come to mind: “You can’t be a Christian if you ____”. If every one of the thousands of people listening would email me with the first words that came to your mind—and I compiled them all into one “statement […]

Stand Up For The Truth in 2015

I want to take a few minutes and talk about the future of Stand Up For the Truth Radio. As Christians we are called to a life that is increasingly holy and pleasing to God. We are not made “instantly holy” when we come to saving faith in Christ Jesus—salvation is the beginning of a […]

Is America in Serious Decline? What Should Christians Do About it?

Six years ago Barack Obama became President of the United States and he promised to fundamentally transform the United States of America. Now regardless of what you think of the President’s policies, you cannot argue that he has been successful in his promise to fundamentally transform our nation in many aspects. If you lean progressive […]

Tolerance is a virtue of the Left

Tolerance might be the highest virtue in our popular culture, but it doesn’t often extend to Christians these days. Christians are increasingly being driven from public life, denied their First Amendment rights, and even actively discriminated against for their beliefs. David Limbaugh is our guest today. He has written a book, Persecution: How Liberals Are […]

True and False Revival

We’re hearing rumblings across Christendom that the modern church is praying for an even planning a great revival that will sweep the land. And wouldn’t it be great to see every knee in every city bow before Jesus in repentance and worship?  But the reality is that our nation is becoming darker by the day.  […]

“Let Someone Else Do It!”

  Years ago I remember watching an episode of “The Simpsons”.  Homer—who has to be the worst husband and father in the world—was frustrated that the government wasn’t providing every service he desired as a citizen. So he decided to run for Mayor and his slogan was “let someone else do it!” Well, speaking to […]

How long?

The world around us seems to be spinning out of control. Wars in the Middle East and Asia; Ebola ravaging Africa; the world economies teetering on the brink; and many falling away from the truth of God’s Word, choosing their own belief systems that are contrary to the Word of God—even professing Christians. Ever since […]

Where Has Our Nation Gone since 9/11?

Today we look back at 13 years ago, when Muslim terrorists murdered more than 3,000 Americans in the 9/11 attacks. A few thoughts on where we have come since that time: Churches reported an all time high in attendance the Sunday after 9/11. The following week saw attendance revert back below where it was before […]

Even Satan believes the Apostle’s Creed

One of the biggest challenges we face as Christians these days is this: Which issues of our faith can we have respectful disagreements on and which should cause a break in fellowship? This is an issue that I think begs a lot of prayer and thought. There certainly is Biblical precedent and teaching to break […]

There has been a lot of discussion about beliefs espoused by Michael Gungor, a musician who will be playing at Power of One, an event hosted and owned by Life Promotions. This event attracts thousands of Christian youth every year with rock music and speakers. Our Board has carefully discussed and prayed about how we should respond to this event.

Mike’s Rant: Read the warning label!

  I want to share a short story about just how stupid men can be—and yours truly is today’s character witness. About 17 years ago I had a bit of a fungus problem in my toe nails and I went to the Doctor. He gave me a prescription that he said would kill the fungus […]

“Pay no attention to the signs, folks”

If your church doesn’t talk much or at all about Bible prophecy, why not? Did you know that a third of your Bible is full of prophecy? Some has been fulfilled, and some is yet to be. But we can be sure of one thing: Every prophecy God has given has or will come true. […]

Is God preparing the World for the Return of Jesus Christ?

Fewer and fewer churches seem interested or willing to teach Biblical prophecy—even though about 30% of the Bible deals with prophecy. There are a couple possible reasons for this: Pastors may be ignorant of the prophetic Word because they were never taught it They may not think it is important They may prefer their people […]

Contending with Humility

I have been thinking and praying a lot about how things have gotten to where they are spiritually in America. There is no doubt we are rapidly becoming an apostate nation and “church”. When 55 million children are sacrificed to our personal god of wealth and convenience—and when we sit back and watch marriage be […]
