Liberalism’s warm fuzzy god

For a number of years a woman I know, I’ll call her Rachel, has wrestled with giving her life to Christ. She admits she really wants to, but how can she when she’d have to serve a God who allows murderers into heaven and sends “good people” to hell? It would be awkward to have […]

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 […]

“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 […]

But lately, Dr. Carson has been saying some very interesting things about the Jesus he believes in.

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 […]

Vanity, vanity

Have you spent time in the book of Ecclesiastes lately? It not only tells the story of how King Solomon learned the meaninglessness of making himself his own god of sorts, but it leaves us with wise words from someone who threw his own God-given wisdom away. Joining us for today’s discussion is our friend […]

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. […]

Perpetual adolescence

In the Old Testament a young man was considered an adult at age 13—once He was a “bar mitzvah”. He was to have memorized the Torah and was to be able to speak to its wisdom. He began to make his own choices, guided by a Minion of Jews including his father and relatives. If […]

Andy Stanley: Even if you don’t believe that Jesus is the Son of God, you will have a better life by following his teachings

“Who doesn’t want their life to be better?” That’s a question Pastor Andy Stanley asked recently.  And his answers are very telling. When we compare some of Andy Stanley’s teachings lately to Scripture, we’re seeing some many discrepancies. We encourage you to do the comparative work for yourself (as the Bereans did), listening carefully to […]

Quick: Define “Christian”

OK, I’ll make a statement and you fill in the blank with the first words that come to mind: “You can’t be a Christian if you ____”. If every one of the thousands of people listening would email me with the first words that came to your mind—and I compiled them all into one “statement […]

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 […]

Why we “Mark and Avoid”

There is a growing trend to dismiss the Bible in a world that says, “you can’t believe a book that’s a couple thousand years old,” as Rob Bell has done. Bell recently made these statements and said that the Church is very close to embracing gay marriage. If you haven’t boldly marked false teachers, people […]

Grace, Mercy and a God who really does know the future

Today we dip into our email bag to find out what’s on your mind!  Lots of folks use Grace and Mercy interchangeably. But are they two distinct terms? And does God really know the future? Dave Wager is our guest today. Dave is president of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute in northern Wisconsin. […]

Obama At National Prayer Breakfast: “People Committed Terrible Deeds In The Name of Christ”

Did Obama just use the National prayer breakfast to slam America and equate Christians with ISIS? These videos are pretty distrubing – in the President’s own words. Via Brietbart News: At the National Prayer Breakfast today, President Obama reminded attendees that violence rooted in religion isn’t exclusive to Islam, but has been carried out by […]

Nerf sharpens Nerf?

Today we’re talking about contending for the faith. But faith in what? And are we using a Nerf Sword rather than the sword of the Spirit? A little later we’ll cover an  open letter to pastors about why people are really leaving church. But does the writer offer biblical solutions? Joining us today is Scott […]

On contending, confessing and compromise

When people die in their rebellion against God, the Bible is very clear about their fate. But while it is still today, do we care enough to roll up our sleeves and content for the faith – even when the unbelievers are hateful toward you? Our guest Robert Meyer shares a personal testimony in an […]
