Sliding into Humanism, Moral Relativism

I wrote my latest book, The Death of Christian Thought, to warn Christians how the dangerous lies of Humanism were infiltrating the hearts and minds of an increasing number of professing Christians, leading many away from God and toward eternal damnation. This morning in our second segment we cover a recent study that shows just how bad things are getting as the spiritual beliefs of younger people stray further and further away from the truth of God and His Word.

In our first segment we talk with Pastor Randy White about a very interesting book by Dave Breese titled Seven Men Who Rule the World from the Grave. We’ll look at seven men whose anti-Christian beliefs and philosophies continue to strongly influence people and society long after their deaths.

Who’s in Charge of the ‘Kingdom Now’?

A crucial doctrine of Christianity is the eventual return of Jesus Christ to judge all men and establish His everlasting Kingdom. Sadly, Bible prophecy is ignored in many churches so Christians are left to their own to try to understand that glorious day when our Lord returns to vanquish evil.

One question I love to ask professing Christians is this: When Jesus returns what does the world look like and what does He do? If their answer involves us, human beings establishing universal justice or cleaning up the world of poverty and pollution, then I know I am dealing with someone who embraces what is called “Dominion theology.” This is the idea that when men clean up the earth Jesus returns and we simply “hand over the keys” to Him so to speak. This is a dangerous form of Humanism, elevating man and discounting God.

One arm of Dominion Theology is called “Kingdom Now” theology and this morning we are joined by Pastor Andy Woods who has written several books discussing this movement.

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.

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?

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.

Lies, Hypocrisy and Cover-ups from the Left

There can be little doubt that the secular media in our nation on the whole is committed to the Socialist progressive movement, and the days of unbiased reporting of news is a thing of the past. Today we discuss the death of media objectivity; has the final nail been hammered in its coffin?

This morning, Mike and Dave discuss a report on how “climate change” data has been manipulated to advance radical environmentalism, and take a look at the hypocrisy of Senate Democrats in the handling of President Trump’s cabinet nominations. We will also look at the increasing pressure progressives are putting on American businesses to get in line with their agenda.

Plus, is media objectivity dead? Sadly, truth and facts are no longer priorities when political ideology reigns supreme.

Confusion and Fear is Not of God

We live in a world that is more and more confusing every day. Morality and truth have become subjective in our nation and our lives are more hectic than ever as we chase things we think will make us happy. If we don’t slow down and seek first the kingdom of God, we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment. Dave Wager joins us again today with another thought-provoking challenge to true believers.

What is the Problem in the Church?

In Matthew 16:18, the “church” is first mentioned in God’s Word as Jesus tells Peter that his revelation ‘Jesus is the Christ’ is the rock upon which Jesus will build His church. And “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Jesus established His church to spread the gospel and equip Christians to walk as His disciples, living as he lived in obedience to the Father. The Christian Church should starkly contrast secular culture and be light in an increasingly dark world. But is this happening in America? A strong argument can be made that the church is increasingly ineffective in transforming lives and the culture we live in.

Who is to blame for this problem? Is it church leadership failing to equip the believers? Or is it the people they lead? People who want enough Jesus to be saved, but not enough to be transformed into living a life holy and pleasing to God?

We explore these questions this morning with Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute.

So Many Questions… Only One Source for Truth

Every week we receive hundreds of emails, phone calls and texts from you, Stand Up for the Truth listeners, asking questions or making comments about the biblical issues we address on the program. I wish we had the time to respond to each one personally, but it is near impossible.

Today, we start a brand new regular segment where we share as many of your comments and questions as we can to hopefully help encourage and inform others with similar questions or concerns.

Our standard but important disclaimer: We will give the best advice and answers we can based on our understanding of God’s Word. But you must always rely on the Bible first, as the only source of eternal, inerrant, sufficient truth.

Thanks to listener questions, the subjects covered on today’s program are: church discipline, Andy Stanley’s series ‘Who Needs God,’ The Shack, apathy in the Christian church, United Church of God theology, IF Gathering led by Jennie Allen, Is Calvinism heresy, fundamental Christian truth vs liberal ‘feeling’ theology, moral relativism, examining the evidence proving the reliability of Scripture.

One of the things addressed on today’s program was Sozo prayer.

Faith: But faith in Whom?

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no man may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, took the wrath of God against sin on the cross in our place, so through our faith in Him we might be forgiven of our sins and have eternal life with God. Faith plays a crucial role in the life and eternal destiny of every human being. Today we discuss our faith in Jesus Christ and God’s faithfulness toward us even when we are not faithful to His will for us with Pastor Mike Abendroth.

We also discuss a movement within a certain sect of Roman Catholicism calling on Pope Francis to proclaim Mary “co-redemptrix” with Jesus Christ. But the group claims this will point people to Jesus rather than distract them away from the only one who can save us. We’ll discuss their argument in our final segment today. Join us live at 9am central Thursday.
