There are those who are cessationists – who believe speaking in tongues and speaking prophecies are not active for today, and those who believe the gifts […]

Is the Christian Church in America Losing Its Influence?

Is the Christian Church in America losing its identity and influence?  Or simple learning to better relate to the secular world around us? Jesus commanded us to reach out into the sinful world and share the good news of the gospel of salvation.  But He also warned us to not conform to the deception and […]

Christians Should Be Seen But Not Heard?

When I was a child one thing I would hear too often from my parents was “Children are to be seen, but not heard”.  We were to be submissive and obedient children but not express opinions when adults were in the room. Are we seeing this philosophy imposed on Bible-believing Christians these days?  Christians around […]

The reality few want to talk about

The Altered States of Contemplative Prayer

  Today we’re talking about Contemplative Prayer. Right off the bat, we need to define our words. When we warn you of the dangers of Contemplative Prayer, what we’re not talking about is meditating on God’s Word or contemplating His holy nature and character.

The Narrow Christian Path

Jesus taught us the path to eternal life was narrow and that few find it.  Along both sides of the narrow path are numerous distractions and dangers lurking to pull us away from God and His eternal Word of Truth.  And if we take our eyes off the path we could easily stray off it […]

They’re Back….

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if there was were no deceptive movements disguising themselves as Biblical Christianity these days?  If we could turn on Christian television and not worry about deception disguised as “truth”.  If we could enjoy a Saturday morning without that knock on the door bringing another religious cult member wanting to tell you […]

In Defense of the the Bible?

A growing number of professing Christians are letting go of the doctrine that the Bible is all true. In fact a growing number also want to see a homosexual president in office!  We’ll have those survey results later in the program…but that first one is very concerning as we hope to pass on the hope […]

The Danger of the Word Faith Movement

Jesus taught that a man must be willing to give up wealth, friends and even family to follow Him as His disciple.  The Christian life is one of obedience and submission to Jesus Christ in every area of our life.  But there are some who believe the Christian life should be marked by health, wealth […]
