The evolving Church

There is a revolution happening in our churches today around the world. Some are calling it the Emergent movement, others are calling it a moral revolution toward a new relativity that accepts sin as the new normal. But as we become stronger in our faith and conviction to stand on God’s word, how are we […]

Evangelicals and the Gay Moral Revolution

by Albert Mohler via the Christian Post: The Christian church has faced no shortage of challenges in its 2,000-year history. But now it’s facing a challenge that is shaking its foundations: homosexuality. To many onlookers, this seems strange or even tragic. Why can’t Christians just join the revolution? And make no mistake, it is a […]

What is "emergent?"

According to those who have studied the Emergent Church, the movement has been around for about 15 years. But instead of looking at labels like “emergent,” should we not instead look at some of the beliefs that are becoming acceptable in the Christian Church and how they square with the Word of God? Today we’re […]

Is "Muslim" a culture, a religious identity, or both?

Christianity is the world’s largest religion, and Islam is 2nd–and growing.  As we reach Muslims with the Truth of the Gospel, should our expectation be conversion to Christianity? These questions are core to how we share our faith in the Arab world and here in the United States. Our special guest today is Elijah Abraham, […]

Unity Around What?

Paul’s letters to the Corinthians cover a myriad of subjects.  But an overriding message is for Christians not to quarrel with one another over relatively unimportant issues–but he also encouraged them to not tolerate false teachings and false teachers within the church. We tackle a lot of difficult issues on Stand Up For the Truth.  […]

Are You a Berean–Or a Fool?

In Acts 17:11 Paul commended the Bereans because they searched the scriptures daily to see if what they were being taught by Paul and others were confirmed by God’s written word.  With everything going on inside and outside the church these days, I can find no more important or pertinent scripture for us as Christians […]

When necessary, use words. Or not…

via christianitytoday.com I’ve heard the quote once too often. It’s time to set the record straight—about the quote, and about the gospel. Francis of Assisi is said to have said, “Preach the gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.” This saying is carted out whenever someone wants to suggest that Christians talk about the […]

Do we really lead like Jesus?

Today on our show we’re talking about the model for Leadership that Jesus showed the world 2,000 years ago.

To even a casual outside observer it would appear that the latest fad to sweep through the Christian church centers around Leadership. One may argue that this insatiable lust for leadership principles borders on idolatry. Here’s just a sampling of this […]

Where Is Your Faith–In God or Men?

Well Washington is poised to pass a compromise on the debt crisis.  As usual it appears to mainly be another in a series of delaying tough decisions for political expediency.  So things will calm down for a little while.  But wait, next Tuesday many Wisconsin voters will vote in recall elections, setting the table for […]
