Deceptive Advertising in Christianity

We need to know the Bible before we can respond with ‘it is written.’

Christians and Sexuality

One of the defining issues of our times regarding the Christian Church in America is the Supreme Court ruling that homosexuals can marry, defying the Word of God in an act of blatant disobedience against Him.  Yet God promises us in His Word that in all things he works for the good of those who […]

Evangelical Lutheran Church (ELCA) ordains trans pastor

Some Christians who have long been members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), have watched in horror as their denomination has fallen to the schemes of Satan. Some have left in disgust. But for others, the Left-leaning progressive theology suits them fine, as long as there’s only the fun parts of the Bible […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lines are drawn. Which side are you on?

It has been an interesting week to say the least. The co-founder of Red Letter Christians, Tony Campolo, has finally come out and publicly acknowledged what many of us suspected for a long time—his full time endorsement for LGBT inclusion and acceptance within Biblical Christianity. And a worship leader at Bill Hybels’ Willow Creek Church […]

Pressure to compromise

We’ve been talking to a lot of pastors and church leaders over the past several months about the things to come. There is growing pressure from the gay lobby and from the government for churches to watch what they say and how they operate when it comes to performing gay marriages. A few weeks ago […]

Pro Family

The so-called “Family Values” Christians

(“Pitiable Capitulating Pro-Family Leaders, Part II”) Before the term pro-family was hijacked by liberals (evangelical was also hijacked) supporters were largely made up from conservative Protestants, Roman Catholics, Mennonites, Mormons, Muslims, and Jews, naming just a few.  For the sake of the country, religious conservatives agreed to set aside their differences and pull together a […]

Where is our discernment?

Today we are talking about the NBC Miniseries A.D. The Bible Continues. It is endorsed by some of the biggest and most questionable evangelicals in Christendom. Its theology comes from Roman Catholic mystics. For Christian pastors, you can purchase a pre-packaged product that includes 12 weeks of sermons plus small group study guides.  Where is […]

Just wait.

It’s “movie day” on today’s program!  Grab your popcorn and join us as we discuss the mass marketing of films into the church.  One of those is Roma Downey’s latest miniseries, “A.D.,” which comes complete with sermon series DVDs and small group study guides. In a non-film story all too common today: How to grow […]

United: What’s the big deal?

We all want to share the light of Christ in a dark world. But these days, is there a line you draw when deciding whom you partner with to do it? And if so, where is it? We’d all like pastors and Christian conference speakers to be discerning about partnerships and venues. What about Christian […]

Gender Chaos

Gender Chaos: The Insanity (and Impossibility) of “Sex Change”

One of the more, um, flamboyant manifestations of the wrath of God pouring out upon a proud, unrepentant America, is our culture’s embrace of an “anything goes” approach to sexuality, which has metastasized into an anything goes attitude on the very concept of gender itself. We see it everywhere – in Starbucks commercials, Apple ads, […]

Preparing for Challenging Times

Since we last talked about a surge in the one-world religion/one-world government the Bible tells us will happen, there have been some big developments: A convergence of 14 world religions – the latest hand-holding religious summit between Rome and evangelical, Mormon, Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh leaders, at the Vatican in Rome.  (See, What do Rick Warren, […]

Christian pastors: Let’s get out of the marriage business

Interesting news as we navigate the ever-changing church landscape in the homosexual marriage arena. Two pastors say they are so concerned about how the government is changing the definition of marriage, they have started a movement encouraging clergy to refuse to perform all civil marriages. Christopher Seitz and Ephraim Radner, Episcopal and Anglican pastors respectively, […]
