Mercy, Grace and Learning From Mistakes

We all continually fall short of the glory of God and fail to be who He wants us to be.  With sexual sin rampant in the world, all of us are in a constant spiritual battle to please God rather than feed our flesh. Word is coming out that several Christian leaders contact information was […]

The Danger of Islam and “Chrislam”

According to the 1 John 4:3 Islam is a religion of anti-christ.  Islam denies that Jesus Christ is God, instead referring to him as a prophet who is less than Muhammad. Muslim terrorists and fanatics continue to murder innocent Christians and others in the Middle East.  And yet the Bible teaches us to love and […]

Serving Two Masters

Jesus warned us sternly that no man can serve two masters–God and money.  That ultimately a man would choose to love one and hate the other.  And as Christians we can easily fool ourselves into thinking we are keeping money in its correct biblical perspective. There are Word Faith televangelists racking up millions of dollars […]

It’s Turning Ugly Out There

Bolstered by the sad decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that legalized homosexual “marriage”, secular progressives are pressing their temporary advantage, doing all they can to suppress and silence the voices of Christian churches and ministries.  They’ve found an ally in the court system and an opponent (Christians) who seem apathetic as a whole. Are […]

Where Are You God?

Every one of us as Christians at times has felt overwhelmed or all alone.  In the midst of trials and tribulations, we cry out to God to protect and rescue us.  And we know He is faithful–but sometimes we wish he acted on our timeline instead of His. King David’s life reflected the best of […]

A “Christian Nation” Turned Pagan?

America was founded upon Judeo-Christian Law, recognizing that all rights come from God alone, and that we were totally dependent on God.  Growing up as a child these beliefs were often reflected in the television and movies we watched, and within society as a whole. These days some of the most popular television shows and […]

Our Greatest Challenge

On Stand Up For the Truth we cover a lot of issues and challenges facing us as Christians.  But perhaps the greatest challenge we face in the world today is sharing the gospel of salvation and hope with those who are on a path to eternal destruction. In Luke 19:10 Jesus states that he came […]

Politics and Christianity

Every four years Americans are given a choice between several political candidates to choose from as our next President.  And of course every one of them promises to “make America great again”.  As Christians we are, of course, to follow Jesus Christ.  Unfortunately, He is not on the ballot.  So how do we balance the […]

Applying 2 Timothy to the Church Today

When you think of the prophetic books of the Bible, 2 Timothy does not usually jump out first.  But Paul’s message to Timothy warns and encourages not only Timothy, but is also a great teaching for us who live in a post-modern world where individual “morality” has replaced the concept of absolute truth.  Paul’s words […]

If only Walter Palmer had killed baby humans instead of Cecil the Lion…

The world is in shock. The masses are horrified. Supermodels lead waves of international outrage. Jimmy Kimmel chokes up on air at the mind-blowing ugliness and brutality of it all. “A coward and a killer” sign is placed on the door of the healthcare business owned and operated by Walter Palmer, perpetrator of the repulsive act of extreme evil that has […]

Everything orbits the Son.

Whether it’s the earth and its moon or the little yellow star around which they twirl, everything ultimately revolves around Christ. Whether Voyager in space or Enterprise in the minds of men, everything ultimately serves Him. Whether art or science or economics or law, everything ultimately lives through Him. That’s the creation in which we live, […]

Presuppositional Law: Where we begin with law determines where we end.

Presuppositional Law: Where we begin with law determines where we end.

What is law? What is the basis for law? What ultimately determines whether a thing is lawful or lawless? What we often automatically and unconsciously presuppose about the origin and nature of law determines what we will allow ourselves to see and consider from that point forward. Our presuppositions about the essence of law dictate which “truths” we […]

The (All-American) Demonic Defenses of Planned Parenthood

If one thing is being made painfully clear these days, it’s that America is a thoroughly satanic culture. Pride defines us. And we’re proud of that. “We the People” see ourselves (and are encouraged by our Corporate-owned American State to see ourselves) as the gold standard for goodness on earth. We’re the “last best hope for humanity”. We’re […]

But some are reporting that there is a movement of Jesus Christ–the true Jesus Christ–in the Muslim world.  And many […]

Romans Chapter 1 in Complete Context

One of the challenges we face as Bible-believing Christians is this:  All of us at times hold firmly to the the verses we love, but want to discount the verses that make us uncomfortable.  But when we profess our complete faith in Jesus Christ and His Word, we do not have the option to pick […]

Should goats and sheep worship together?

We know that the Church – with Christ at the head – is a place for repentant sinners who are being sanctified by the Holy Spirit, where we gather to be equipped, to break bread in fellowship, to love and serve one another and to grow in our faith. The biblical model set up by […]

News the mainstream won’t touch

Today we’re reporting on news that you won’t hear on most media channels, and in many cases Christians are silent about these matters. We can think of no better example than the best news of all: The Gospel. So that’s how we are starting the program. The rest of the news headlines pales in comparison, […]
