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 […]

A Challenge For The Theologically Minded Christian

Tim Challies challenges us to consider if we can know doctrine, yet fail to love God completely: “Have you ever considered how books of the Bible would be changed if God had left out their final chapter? Matthew without chapter 28 would leave us as Christians without a Great Commission. Ruth without chapter 4 would never […]

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 […]

Unraveling the Mystery of Biblical Prophecy

It is believed that up to as much as 30% of the Word of God deals with prophecy.  Some has been fulfilled; some has yet to come to pass.  Some is for Israel; some is for the Church.  And sometimes Biblical prophecy is fulfilled numerous times over numerous generations and situations. God has given us […]

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 […]

A Move of Jesus in the Muslim World?

The spread of radical Muslim terrorism is a real crisis–one that is starting to hit nearly every nation on earth.  Christians being slaughtered for refusing to renounce Jesus Christ has become an almost daily event. 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 […]

The Players in Earth’s Final Battle

Gog, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Cush, Put, Gomer and on and on.  These are lands and peoples identified in the Ezekiel 38 War that sets the stage for the return of Jesus Christ to judge all men. Without an understanding of who these people and nations are in our times it makes watching for signs […]

The Next Leaders in the Church

Every generation tends to look at the previous one and sees issues and problems they are determined to fix.  There is a natural human seed of rebellion in us that tells us the older generation is backwards thinking and steeped in tradition–and that “our” generation will get things right. But as the Word of God […]

Abortion images to be shown on Jumbo-tron at Lincoln Memorial

Abortion has ended more lives than the world wars and the Holocaust combined. We see those images, and say to ourselves, “Never again.” What if the world could see exactly what happens in a real abortion process?  Tomorrow in Washington D.C., they will. Created Equal, a national pro life group, will be displaying abortions in […]

Cowardice in Leadership

Today we continue to look at the fall out from the legalization of homosexual marriage and how Christian “leaders” are responding.  Some government employees are refusing to issue homosexual marriage licenses, citing religious conviction.  The response: comply or be fired. And Joel Osteen has weighed in on the decision.  Could he actually have a strong […]

The Message of the Message “Bible”

There are many translations of The Bible we can choose from these days.  Some are more literal while some take great liberties to present the original language in a more ‘reader friendly” format.  Then there are those that are not really Bibles at all–and today we discuss a paraphrase of the Bible that is becoming […]

Willow Creek and Christian Leadership

I have been thinking a lot lately about some closing comments I did on Stand Up For the Truth about 4 years ago. I compared our role to a pesky alarm clock that wakes you up at 4am out of a deep sleep, letting you know it is time to wake up and go to […]

How Should A Christian Live In A Culture Given Over To A Depraved Mind?

Posted by Christine Pack at Sola Sisters and reprinted with permission Before I was born again, I had a number of homosexual friends, and for some reason, I often ended up being a sympathetic ear for them. This was before homosexuality was accepted as normal, as it is today, and many of them expressed to […]

Guiding the Church in Challenging Times

The first century Christian Church faced a variety of threats from outside and within.  Roman and Jewish persecution of believers and an influx of false teachers inside causing people to stray from the true faith were constant challenges the apostles wrote about to the early churches. God’s Word also wrote of the final days when […]
