Understanding Proper Context

For I know the plans that I have for you…

We know the Bible is the inspired Word of God, eternal truth and sufficient in all matters. But we can easily fall into a trap of taking a single verse out of context and building bad theology and belief systems around a single verse instead of understanding and applying it in correct context. Do we take the time to understand these verses and Scripture as a whole in context as we read and study?

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to discuss how we can get in trouble when we misunderstand or misapply scripture out of context.

Should Christians Expect to be Treated Fairly?

Every parent of a little child has heard it from their children when the child has to do something he doesn’t want to do: “That’s not fair!” Our response usually is “Who said life was fair?”

Jesus warned us the world would hate us because it hated Him. As we see Christian liberties stripped while our government goes out of its way to protect others, many people of faith are calling foul. But should we expect fair treatment from a culture, government, or a world that hates God?

First we are joined by Jay Seegert of the Creation Education Center to discuss how we can prove the truth of the Bible to atheists and evolutionists. We can effectively share evidence from science and Scripture with them while asking them questions about their claims.

Mixing Truth with Human Traditions?

We know the Bible is absolute truth, inerrant and sufficient for all we need to know about God and life. But the Pharisees were guilty of adding man-made doctrines and traditions and holding them up as if they were God’s Word. Jesus chastised them strongly for doing so – to the point of calling them fools and hypocrites.

If we are not diligent in reading and understanding the scriptures, the same thing can happen to us. Something that sounds good quietly gets elevated to the level of scripture, and it can lead us into trouble. We need to pray for more discernment!

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to discuss his latest book tackling this issue Evangelical White Lies.

Protecting Trees More than Babies

There is something seriously wrong when it is legal, and even encouraged, to murder a child in the womb, but damaging a tree can land you a big fine or even time behind bars. This is just another example of how we have lost our moral compass in America.

Today we cover this story and others, including a major scandal rocking World Vision with accusations that donor monies were being funneled to Palestinian terrorist movements attacking and killing Israelis. Then, and you knew this was coming, a mother and son are going to court over charges of incest saying they should be able to love each other – shouldn’t they? After all, if ‘love is love’ then anything goes!

In our final segment we are excited to again check in with Evangelist, speaker and author Ray Comfort to discuss his latest book Fat Chance: Why Pigs will Fly Before America has an Atheist President. Comfort is the founder of Living Waters ministry.

A Nation of “Victims”

America is a land where human freedom has reached heights never before imagined by man. People who are willing to work hard are capable of economic success and a life of prosperity.

But we have become a nation of “whiners”, constantly complaining and lately it seems everyone is a “victim” of life and its circumstances. Today we look at a provocative article by Linda Harvey that talks about the growth of “victim-hood” in America. Who are the real victims and who are the whiners?

But to kick things off this morning, we check in with Carl Kerby, a Christian apologist and Creationist, to discuss why so many youth are turning their backs on church and the Christian faith. Carl shares the importance of critical thinking, reason, and using logic along with the truth of Scripture to back up the evidence for God and creation. Too many people today will argue against God and the Bible having very little to back up their claims and worldview. It is important that we know how to respond to them and point them to Christ.

The Continuing March to Globalism

The Bible is clear on what lies ahead: more people and nations will be gathering in defiance to God and His Word. And for centuries every generation has wondered if theirs would be the one to see the return of the Lord. World events are coming together at breakneck speed.

So what is different about the times we live in? Are there unmistakable signs of the times that the world is about to unite in rebellion against God, ultimately leading to the return of Jesus Christ? Jesus said we would not know the exact day of His return, but that we could discern the season of it by observing carefully.

Joining us this morning is a man who has studied globalism and has written extensively about the coming one world government and religion–Gary Kah.

Just What Will it Take?

Lies prevail over truth. Today we look at some interesting comments by Pope Francis defending Islam, along with the ISIS response to his remarks. We also check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action to continue our discussion about the rights and responsibilities of Christian churches and leaders to speak up and become engaged in the battle for souls. Just what will it take for us to recognize we are in a spiritual war where lies are currently prevailing over the truth in our culture?

The Prophetic Invasion and Survival of Israel

Host David Fiorazo is joined by Dr. Andy Woods.

For those who live in America, it can be challenging to slow down enough to maintain an eternal perspective and recognize signs of the end times all around us. There are rebellious haters of God, natural disasters, wars, and rumors of wars – in addition to the growing persecution of Christians worldwide. Israel however, is also a major focus of end times prophecy and it is wise to support her because we know those nations are blessed who bless Israel.

We need to pay attention to our volatile times as surrounding nations come against Israel. To be sure, God is not pacing up in Heaven or wringing His hands. These things must happen before the return of Jesus Christ.

Three major things happen when we understand Bible prophecy better: Our faith is strengthened, our hope in Christ is encouraged by the fulfillment of prophecy, and we are more excited to tell others about the truth!

We live in one of the most interesting time periods of history. The Lord seems to be setting the stage for His return as never before. One of these major stage-setting trends that we are currently seeing is the rise of a coalition of nations that harbors a hostile intent toward Israel. No matter which presidential administration comes into office in this nation and no matter how the calendar turns, this is an issue that does not seem to go away.

Removing Truth and Christ from Culture

Target corporation is spending $20 million to add more bathrooms due to the corporation’s transgender policy. Gender confusion is being promoted on prime time television, in commercials, by the White House, and yes, in public schools.

Many in the U.S. government have been corrupted, and the lack of accountability has never been higher. Also looming is the increased threat of losing more religious freedom.

The speed in which America has shifted away from Christianity has accelerated to the point many Christians are checking out of culture rather than addressing the issues with God’s love and the truth of His Word. When people of faith back down and are silent, the result is lots of rotten fruit in the form or immorality, debauchery, and of course, moral relativism.

Today’s guest, Dr. Alex McFarland is a Christian worldview and culture expert and author of 17 books. His latest book came out this summer, Stand Strong America: Courage, Freedom and Hope for Tomorrow.
