When political activism crosses the line

How do we stand strong as Christians against any political leader we perceive as a bad choice for public office — without giving in to hatred, or acting in ways Jesus did not call us to? As our nation falls deeper into spiritual, moral and financial decay, many of our listeners are wondering aloud if […]

Mormonism: the elephant in the booth

Today we talked about politics, and no matter what your take is on whether faith should or shouldn’t play a role, we at least need to be aware of the issues. And as Christians, the topic of Mormonism should not make us feel “sticky” or “squishy.” The candidates for president and their campaign messages will […]

How seriously should Christians take the political process?

Charles Spurgeon is quoted as saying, “Of two evils, choose neither.”  That seems to be a growing sentiment among Christians who are feeling that way when it comes to voting and politics. Here is the latest Barna poll on how Christians view voting – or not voting – on specific issues, broken down by whether […]

Real Faith in God

In Hebrews we are taught that without faith it is impossible to please God.  Faith is what the Christian life is all about—we worship a God we cannot see, and believe in faith that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died and rose from the dead.  We have no empirical truth that these facts are […]

Safety recall for those exposed to emergent books, DVDs. etc

When bad spinach or broken brake lines harm consumers, a swift recall alert is issued to ensure no one else suffers from flawed or infected products.  So shouldn’t the same standard apply to products that harm us spiritually–perhaps even eternally?   Our guest today, Pirate Christian Radio’s Chris Rosebrough of Fighting for the Faith issued a […]

Collectivism in the Church: How did we get here?

There is an entire culture, complete with its own language, shaped around what has become the “business” of doing Church. Rather than focusing on feeding the sheep or equipping the saints to bring the Good News of the Gospel to those who don’t know Him, it would seem the Next Church is about the business […]

“Mercy Killing” of People with Disabilities?

It’s hard to imagine even having to report a story about murdering those our society has deemed “unuseful” or “inconvenient.” Do you realize how our culture has been eeking toward the precipice of eugenics? In the twentieth century, there was an organization that not only advocated the “mercy killing” of the disabled, they carried out […]

Are Mormons Christian?

NO. I’d end this article here, because that is your answer, should anyone ever ask you. And with the presidential election on the horizon, it is more than likely that Mormonism and Christianity might come up in conversation. Already the high-profile Christian leaders are being asked about it. Saddleback Church’s Rick Warren sort of answered […]

Mormons and Christians: The national conversation

There isn’t much we won’t cover on Stand Up For The Truth. As we head toward the November election, the presidential campaign has for the first time bumped Mormonism into the national conversation.

Islam–Threat or Opportunity for Christians?

It is our human nature to procrastinate.  Generally we wait until a crisis is upon us before we react.  We get busy with every day duties and tend to not look too far into the future to anticipate potential issues headed our way.  This certainly seems to be happening with American Christianity and the growth […]

Islam 101

Think you know Islam? It is the second largest religion in the world, only surpassed by Christianity. Islam was “born” from the writings of Mohammed, who claimed he received additional teachings from the angel Gabriel. Islam considers the writings of Judaism and Christianity “completed” by the Qur’an, the sacred book of Islam. Our guest today […]

Secular Humanism vs. "Cosmic" Humanism: Do you know the difference?

Imagine there’s no heaven …no hell below us…above us only sky.  When you grow up hearing things like this, your worldview is built upon what us basically-good humans can achieve by our own will and might.   As one raised in secular humanism, I am thrilled to hear that the particular brand of atheism I […]

Which way is the Church headed?

When we understand who Jesus is and how His atonement mirrored the sacrificial symbolism of Jewish tradition, the meaning of the cross becomes clearer. But these days there is a movement within the Church toward a faith that has very little to do with our Hebrew roots, and even less to do with Jesus’ sacrifice […]
