A Battle Over Values, Culture, and Media

Fifty years seems like a long time to most of us, but in the scope of history it is a very short period of time. Over the past fifty years America has been transformed from arguably the greatest Christian nation in the world to one of the most pagan nations in the world, compliments of the Progressive/Marxist left.

Then, in our “Media Watch” segment, we look at stores involving how the media typically reports when it comes to the pro-life/pro-abortion issue as well as news involving terrorism. Once again, we point out just how far from our Christian foundation our nation has fallen.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs…

No, we are not talking about the hit song of the 1960s–we’re talking about the increasing signs around us that our generation might, just might, be the one that sees the return of Jesus Christ. And while we anticipate His return with great hope and joy, we understand that only God knows the appointed date when Jesus calls us home and returns to establish His everlasting Kingdom.

Jesus warned us to be alert and look for the signs of His return, but to many Christians, biblical prophecy is confusing, intimidating and does not rank high on our priority list. This morning we’re joined by author and Pastor Carl Gallups, a scholar of biblical prophecy, to discuss the signs happening around us that might just point to the quick return of our Lord and Savior.

A Disconnect With Reality?

We check in with Dr. Charles Ware today, President of Crossroads Bible College in Indiana to discuss Christian leadership, character, reason and racial reconciliation as we look to God’s Word to guide us.

When we look at the confusion and lack of moral compass and common sense displayed by more and more young people today, perhaps we have to look no further than “Higher Education” to see the cause. This morning we cover a news story about how secular Universities are pandering to students who are “searching and confused” about their sexual identity. Just when you thought things couldn’t get more bizarre.

The Words We Use and How We Define Them

The words we use, and how we define them, are critically important.  I am seeing an alarming pattern where professing Christians, and often the people they follow, are just slightly twisting words or attaching a human definition...

A Widening Generational Gap Within Christianity?

Are we seeing this up and coming generation ushering in ideas principles that will change America and the professing Church in a very profound way? Jeff Strommen of HopeNet 360 joins us for a discussion on “generational differences.”

We’re also joined by Tim Chaffey of Midwest Apologetics to look at making certain when we “stand up for the truth” that we are standing on what the Bible says and not what we think it says.

A Nefarious Plot

With hundreds of millions of dollars spent, and the majority of Americans invested in the election of the next president, people have fallen into basically one of two “camps”: Those who believe Donald Trump will turn our nation around, and those who believe he will run it into the ground. The truth is this: Donald Trump is neither our savior, nor is he the Antichrist. But most Americans have been conditioned to look to men for solutions instead of humbling ourselves before God and seeking His solutions.

My guest this morning wrote a fascinating book laying out his thoughts on why America seems headed for disaster–and why it is futile to look for hope in a person or political party. Steve Deace is an author, radio talk show host and committed disciple of Jesus Christ who is a student of the Bible, history and politics. His book “A Nefarious Plot” has been widely hailed as an excellent critique of the challenges America faces and why we seem incapable of returning our nation to its former greatness.

Ignoring Two Thirds of the Bible

Biblical apologetics–the study of why we believe what we believe–is a crucial part of the Christian life, yet by most accounts highly ignored. And it seems even when Christians gather to study God’s Word the focus is on the New Testament, and we ignore two thirds of the Bible that is rich with important teachings and examples of God’s plan to reconcile man to Himself–and why Jesus coming as God in the flesh to die on the cross was necessary.

If we do not study and understand Old Testament teachings we can easily be deceived by slick atheists or secular humanists who point out what they claim are “contradictions” between the God of the Old Testament and Jesus Christ.

Joining us this morning to help us have the tools necessary to read and correctly interpret the Old Testament is Dr. Randy White. His latest book is an excellent tool to help Christians read and appreciate the richness of the Old Testament: “The Bible Graphically Presented”

Tis the Season… for Atheists to Seek Converts

It seems there is nothing Atheists detest more than the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. These promoters of “tolerance” literally lose their minds when people dare proclaim their belief and faith in the Son of God becoming human to bear the sins of man upon Himself.

Today we are joined by Dr. Alex McFarland to look at the atheist mindset and see why they seem so hypocritical when it comes to free speech and tolerance, trying to deny Christians the right to express our faith as we see best.

We will address the motive for anti-Christmas atheist billboards as well as the reasons behind the dwindling numbers of Bibles in hotel rooms today compared with a decade ago. There’s also an important court case in Indiana that might affect the rights of Christian Counselors, non-profits and churches to help people struggling with same-sex attraction.

From Creation to Christ with Jay Seegert

As we again celebrate Christmas, too many Christians come in at the “middle of the story” (the birth of Jesus), missing out on the story line and feeling somewhat empty. They do not understand the amazing story of creation, the fall of man and God’s attempt at reconciling man to Him. The richness of the gospel is relegated to a single event rather than an amazing testimony to God’s holiness, justice, reconciliation and love.

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us this morning to discuss the importance of not just coming in during the middle of the Christmas story, and how we miss out on so much when we do.

Bible Prophecy Lacking in American Churches

Most Biblical scholars believe that more than one quarter of the Bible contains prophetic teachings–yet the subject of prophecy is largely ignored in many churches these days. Our guest this morning believes we are living in the most prophetic times since the first coming of Jesus Christ. But are most Christians aware of the prophecies, particularly regarding Israel. being fulfilled in our times–or do they even care?

Author and Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to discuss his new book, When the Lion Roars and shares why he believes the study of biblical prophecy is crucial for Christians.

Christmas – from Sacred to Secular?

Is the origin, meaning, and celebration of Christmas controversial to some within the church? A few of the issues mentioned are Jesus wasn’t really born on December 25th, Christmas comes from a pagan holiday tradition, Christmas trees represent pagan worship; and that Santa Claus is evil.

Then in our final segment, we look at how some progressive universities are seeking to destroy masculinity, and we also address Oxford Dictionary’s “Word of the Year” – an incredibly sad reflection of our society.

If You Build it, They Might Come

We would all love to see a growth in the number of strong Christian churches in America. Over the past fifteen years there has been a fervent effort to plant more churches, but the statistics show that pretty much for every new church that opens, another closes its doors. Is it time we rethink our strategy on Church planting? Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss the Church Plant Movement and its current shortcomings.

We are also joined by Dr. Cal Beisner of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to discuss President Trump’s nominee to head up the EPA. Is there reasonable common ground that bible-believing Christians can find with environmentalists?

Questioning Evangelism

No, we don’t mean we are questioning the necessity and value of sharing the gospel; we mean using questions in our conversations with others to share the good news of Jesus Christ. How many times do we try to witness to lost people only to find our efforts thwarted by people who seem like they have their minds made up and just don’t want to hear what we are saying?

We look to the example of Jesus who often taught using questions. Joining us today is Jay Seegert to discuss the power of asking questions and how to get people to think.
