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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

In Defense of the the Bible?

A growing number of professing Christians are letting go of the doctrine that the Bible is all true. In fact a growing number also want to see a homosexual president in office!  We’ll have those survey results later in the program…but that first one is very concerning as we hope to pass on the hope […]

The Lure of the Prosperity Gospel

Today we continue our look at the Word of Faith movement with our guest Pastor David Hocking.  The movement understandably appeals to Americans because of the promise of earthly blessings–but is it leaving disappointment and devastation in its wake while a handful live a life of fame and fortune? Pastor David Hocking joins us by […]

A sister and a soldier: Update on Caryl Matrisciana

An update on our friend, Caryl Matrisciana: I spoke with her a few nights ago, and she has encouraged me to share her latest newsletter released this morning to update everyone on her battle with cancer. I don’t want you to miss two words in that last sentence: She encouraged me.  That’s the kind of […]

“Forgive the Shooter.” The Most Difficult Command?

Today we’ll be covering some breaking and alarming news: ISIS claims responsibility for Texas shooting, threatens more attacks. Every day the news reports another story of senseless killing, terror and the murder of Christians.  Our flesh wants to lash out in vengeance–yet Jesus taught us In Matthew 5 to love, forgive and pray for our […]

A strong exhortation to stay the course

We know that we most assuredly are in a time of the great falling away that Jesus spoke of. We are seeing a huge increase in false teachings and false teachers infiltrating even ministries and churches that have been solid contenders for truth. We know what the Bible says about grievous wolves, and how we […]

Progressive Christianity

Today we are looking at Progressive Christianity. It is an incredibly dangerous movement, and quite frankly, it is the yeast that has taken the Church away from the truth and toward a more tolerant, sin-affirming direction that is muddied with mushy theology. How can you tell if it has seeped into your church? And if […]

The Battle is Over — But Just Beginning

There is some irony in the fact that the controversy over Religious Freedom Laws in the United States has blown up during the week when we as Christians remember and celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who bore the wrath of God against sin, so that we might be […]

Those 7 Churches in Revelation…

About 2,000 years ago on the Greek island of Patmos, Jesus Christ Himself came to his beloved servant John and commanded him to, “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and […]

Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Embraces LGBT-Inclusive Definition Of Marriage

Biblical Christianity has taken another assault on truth, and it’s a major domino: “The tide has turned for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender couples seeking to be married in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A)” That’s the headline reported by LGBT-supporting Huffington Post, a left-leaning blog covering religious news. As you read HuffPo’s story, be sure to […]

A time to laugh, and a time to get serious

Today we’re starting our program with a lighthearted look at family, raising teens, relationships – you know, the things that often cause angst. Then later on in the program we’re going to share a hard-hitting article on how easy it is to allow sloppy doctrine to slide into the church and leave a trail of […]

Want Some False Doctrine in Your Life? Try These Handy Tips!

Kudos to Steve Kozar over at the Messed Up Church blog (love that blog name), for this article, which captures the more frustrating elements of trying to contend for the faith in an environment where yeast grows freely.  (Plus, it’s the first Christian blog I know of that has found a way to incorporate Shaba […]

Suffering and Prayer in the Christian Life

Today we look at two important, yet often misunderstood doctrines in the Bible: Suffering and Prayer. No one really wants to suffer.  We would all prefer a life of comfort.  But the Bible warns us that suffering is an important part of the Christian life–and that when it happens we should rejoice!   Tough teaching indeed. […]

The Juvenilization of American Christianity

Americans of all ages are not sure they want to grow up. It is common to hear thirty-, forty-, or even fifty-year-olds say things like, “I guess I have to start thinking of myself as an adult now.” Many emerging adults ages eighteen to twenty-three want to get married and have children eventually, but they […]

Can we please get our act together?

Today could go down in history as the day America gets its act together, repents of its political folly and stand once again with Israel. Maybe. Or not. As Prime Minister Benjamen Netanyahu prepares to address congress this morning to plead for common sense on Iran’s nuclear strategy, we’re seeing reports that President Obama Has […]

Conditional faithfulness?

The Bible continually discusses God’s faithfulness and the need for us to have complete faith in Him. But what exactly does the Bible say about the faith we are to have in God? And what about God’s faithfulness? Does His faithfulness extend to all people? All believers unconditionally? Or is God’s faithfulness conditional at times […]

So you say you’re a Christian…

Today may be the toughest, most challenging show we have ever done on Stand Up For the Truth. The topic is highly emotional and it affects every person who has ever been born. It may also be the topic that Christians argue the most over: Salvation. How is a man saved from eternal damnation? Does […]
