The Narrow Path and Gate

The way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. – Jesus in Matthew 7

The life of a believer should be markedly different from people of the world. We are called to higher standard of morality, and we are called to be above reproach with not even a hint of immorality that could lead others to stumble into sin. Not an easy assignment, but one we are called to by our savior.

Dave Wager joins us this morning to discuss the narrow path, the narrow gate, and the narrow life of a true believer.

Bracing for an Economic Shaking

How should Christians prepare for a potential major economic shake-up? The Bible warns us of great economic stress and chaos as we approach the return of our Lord and Savior. The world will face economic and social crisis and look for a “savior”–but most will look in all the wrong places!

Things are still relatively stable in our economy, at least on the surface. But an increasing number of economists are warning of a big shakeup as our government continues to prop up the economy with massive spending and debt. We’re joined today by Doug Wakefield of Best Minds Inc. and Dan Teske to discuss the warning signs and how Christians can prepare if things get ugly.

The Danger of Allegorical Scripture

We know the Word of God is absolute truth. But these days some are using verses out of context to deliver a message that differs or sometimes even contradicts the meaning of the scriptures. Other sermons might feature a Bible verse or two in a cameo appearance, but the truth can become lost in a sea of personal stories, allegory or meaningless chatter.

Pastor Gary Gilley of Southern View Chapel joins us to discuss the signs serious Christians should watch out for when listening to a sermon. How can we tell if Scripture is being minimized or watered-down? How do we know if we are truly growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? (2 Peter 3:18)

We also take a look at the movement of “Progressive Internationalism” being pushed by the United Nations and other world leaders. Are one or more of our presidential candidates disciples of this movement?

Whose Perspective Do We See Others Through?

Men see from a human perspective; God sees from an eternal perspective. We see things through a clouded veil with an incomplete picture; God sees all things clearly and perfectly.

Christians have the mind of Christ, better able to see things as God sees them through His Word. This morning, Dave Wager discusses how God sees others and our circumstances compared to our incomplete perception as humans.

Remembering 9/11, Keeping a Spiritual Perspective

On 9/11/2001, radical Islamic terrorists hijacked four jet planes with the intent of dealing a devastating blow to our nation. More than 3,000 people died and our nation was changed in a profound way. This Sunday marks the fifteenth anniversary of this horrendous tragedy.

Joining us to discuss Islam, the Quran, and how Christians should respond to the very real threat of Muslim terrorism is a former Muslim, now born-again believer, Elijah Abraham.

Are You Prepared for Battle?

Make no mistake: If you are a serious, committed Christian, you are in a war! The eternal souls of millions is at stake and this battle allows for no neutral parties or oblivious bystanders. You are either actively engaged in this spiritual effort or you give aid and comfort to the enemy by standing on the side in silence and not intervening.

The weapons of our warfare are not those of the world. Yet the weapons we wield are powerful to overcome the darkness and lead people to the light of Jesus Christ. But weapons can be ineffective or even useless unless we are well equipped, trained to handle them skillfully.

Eric Barger joins us this morning to discuss his book on spiritual warfare, Disarming the Powers of Darkness.

Trusting God in Difficult Times

God cannot lie and He has given us promises that he will never abandon us as His children. When we face tough times do we lean on God or our own flawed human understanding? Is God the first place we turn? Or the last resort once we have failed to solve our own problems?

Joining us this morning is Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch.

Understanding Proper Context

For I know the plans that I have for you…

We know the Bible is the inspired Word of God, eternal truth and sufficient in all matters. But we can easily fall into a trap of taking a single verse out of context and building bad theology and belief systems around a single verse instead of understanding and applying it in correct context. Do we take the time to understand these verses and Scripture as a whole in context as we read and study?

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to discuss how we can get in trouble when we misunderstand or misapply scripture out of context.

Entitlement vs Responsibility

A growing number of people want the good things of life without the hard work and responsibilities. People are being duped by the idea of free stuff including college tuition, healthcare, jobs, retirement benefits, all without any of the responsibility.

Christians must be discerning and not fall for the entitlement traps all around us. Today’s guest is Dave Wager from Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute.
