Christians need to face the bad news about Christianity

Backsliders, fallen away and nominal Christians seem to be the new norm these days. Even Russell Moore, who recently met with the Pope, is opining that Christianity isn’t normal any more, as you’ll see in the following article. We’re not siding with the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission head, so you’ll also […]

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 […]

Heaven Is Fo Reals! (And other extra-biblical “revelations”)

People inherently love to learn about Jesus and Heaven. Not the real Jesus or the real (purged of sin and unrepentant sinners) world to come, of course, but the happy, fluffy, man-affirming versions that they’ve made up in their self-referential little heads. You know, smiling, happy, uncritical Jesus, and “everybody but Hitler will be there” Heaven. As for learning […]

The Curse of Magic Christianity

Praying that God will do miraculously what we refuse to do through obedience Why do we pray for God to “magically” do what He has commanded and equipped us to do through His Spirit and Word? Why do we pray for God to “do something” to protect our children from the consequences of the very things […]

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

If you are feeling that something isn’t quite right with the world – you’d be right. The reality is, many Christians have been waking up to an increasingly dark and threatening presence of Hell on earth. No, we’re not cursing, we are acknowledging the increasing depravity and scoffing Jesus told us – warned us – […]

Liberalism’s warm fuzzy god

For a number of years a woman I know, I’ll call her Rachel, has wrestled with giving her life to Christ. She admits she really wants to, but how can she when she’d have to serve a God who allows murderers into heaven and sends “good people” to hell? It would be awkward to have […]

The evidence of good fruit

As Christians, are we proud, or self reliant?  Is this the evidence of our fruit? If we trust in ourselves, there is little room for trusting God and being humble. Joining us for today’s discussion is our friend Dave Wager. Dave is president of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute in northern Wisconsin. Dave is also co-hosts a radio […]

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. We are talking about the man-made methodologies used as a spiritual […]

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 […]

The Lure of the Prosperity Gospel

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 […]

He Who Has an Ear

The Founding Fathers of this nation realized the dangers of a powerful federal government. From the establishment of the Constitution to the Bill of Rights to the insistence on States’ Rights, our founders realized that centralized power was an open door for corruption and tyranny. They knew that sinful men could not be trusted to […]

Exactly What is a “Church”?

As we prepare for our Watchman Conference tonight, our keynote speaker Elijah Abraham joins us to discuss what Jesus meant when He said “I will build my church.”  What is a “church” in America compared to the “church” in countries where proclaiming your faith in Jesus Christ might lead to imprisonment or execution?  Is the […]
