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.

The Battle for Truth in Church and Culture

We must be undaunted in establishing God’s Word as the basis of our thinking, our faith, and our lives. There are many within the church who do not believe God’s Word in its entirety and do not believe in the deity of Jesus Christ. Truth is on the line here as we try to navigate a godless and rapidly changing culture.

Choosing to Trust, Obey, and Pray

The Christian life is not just sitting back and letting God do all the work; nor is it trying to accomplish things only God can accomplish. Finding the correct biblical balance in living the Christian life is not always easy. Several times in His Word, God says He will do something once we have done something. But have we taken the time to really understand God’s promises to us and which of them are conditional on us doing something first? Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss prayer, choices, God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibilities.

In our final segment, Mike and Dave look at another example of the “progressive meltdown” in our nation. This time it is over the Super Bowl.

Controversy Within The Southern Baptist Convention

Today, we cover a controversy within The Southern Baptist Convention over the building of a Muslim mosque in New Jersey. A city has not approved the building of this mosque, but the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board has filed an amicus brief with the court supporting a lawsuit against the city on behalf of Muslims. One pastor has resigned from the Mission Board citing a contradiction between the Board’s action and its mission of spreading the gospel.

In our first segment, we check in with Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom. Tina will point out some good role models for young people to look up to, and we’ll also talk about the need for Christians to make a statement to Hollywood by boycotting much of what they offer at the box office.

Messing with Our Minds

The Bible warns of a coming one world government and religion so deceptive that if possible, even the elect would be deceived. There are many speculations on what this one world religion will look like. Mike LeMay has written a new book The Death of Christian Thought where he identifies Humanism, self-worship, as this coming one world religion. He also explains that we are being slowly indoctrinated into it every day. In Matthew 7, Jesus warns that many who think they will be going to heaven will instead be cast into eternal separation from God. One reason Mike wrote his book is to address professing Christians to heed Jesus’ words.

Ha also asks some challenging questions about how culture is shaping our thoughts and worldview:

How are we being indoctrinated and who is behind this devious plot?

How can we reject Humanism and stay faithful to God and His Word in these increasingly dangerous times?

Why are a growing number of church fellowships ineffective in sharing the gospel and equipping believers for the work of His kingdom?

And why are an increasing number of Christian couples not enjoying the fruit of strong, healthy marriages such as f love, joy , good communication, mutual submission and peace? These are a few of the questions Mike tackles in his book and we discuss during today’s program.

Spiritual Truth vs. Moral Relativism

How do we lovingly dialogue and confront moral relativists who claim truth doesn’t exist? This morning we read an “Open Letter to a Relativist”– one woman’s response to a moral relativist whose beliefs seem to speak for a growing number of people these days.

We also check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action to discuss realistic legislation that can be enacted to curtail, and perhaps one day, end the tragedy of abortion in our nation. Can abortion eventually be eliminated? Or do we have to settle for incremental victories from time to time?

A Widening Generational Gap Within Christianity?

Are we seeing this up and coming generation ushering in ideas principles that will change America and the professing Church in a very profound way? Jeff Strommen of HopeNet 360 joins us for a discussion on “generational differences.”

We’re also joined by Tim Chaffey of Midwest Apologetics to look at making certain when we “stand up for the truth” that we are standing on what the Bible says and not what we think it says.

Tis the Season… for Atheists to Seek Converts

It seems there is nothing Atheists detest more than the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. These promoters of “tolerance” literally lose their minds when people dare proclaim their belief and faith in the Son of God becoming human to bear the sins of man upon Himself.

Today we are joined by Dr. Alex McFarland to look at the atheist mindset and see why they seem so hypocritical when it comes to free speech and tolerance, trying to deny Christians the right to express our faith as we see best.

We will address the motive for anti-Christmas atheist billboards as well as the reasons behind the dwindling numbers of Bibles in hotel rooms today compared with a decade ago. There’s also an important court case in Indiana that might affect the rights of Christian Counselors, non-profits and churches to help people struggling with same-sex attraction.

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.

Tower of Babel 2: The March Toward Globalism

Just like humanity’s efforts in building the Tower of Babel that God destroyed, mankind is once again on a journey to proclaim itself “god”. Led by the United Nations and globalist economic, social and military forces, Progressives are determined to unite the world and form their version of “paradise” where mankind is unfettered by any constraints of God or His Word.

Gary Kah of hope for the World has studied the globalist movement for more than thirty years and joins us this morning for an update.

Why Does God Compare People To Sheep?

Many of us want to believe we are strong, independent, intelligent, adventurous, and even invincible. In the Bible however, God compares us to sheep – over and over. Not a flattering comparison, but there are many reasons for this. First, since we are the sheep of His pasture, we are dependent on Him. We also have a Good Shepherd who feeds us and tends to our needs.

If we dwell in the shelter God provides, and if we abide in the shadow of the Almighty as Psalm 91:1 suggests, then we are protected. When we stay close enough to Jesus our Shepherd, we can rest in His shadow and grow in His presence. Our responsibility is to stay close to Him, keep listening to His voice, and to not stray. Though we often follow many people and things in this life, we were made to follow after God, our Leader.
