The times we're in: Signs of what's to come?

The times we’re in: Signs of what’s to come?

There are those in the Church within various movements who call themselves “prophets,” and who have built multi-million dollar industries selling their wares, convincing people to part with their life savings and pointing the world to themselves rather than to our Holy Creator God. These folks are in a class by themselves, and we don’t […]

Christain Freedom Comes With Responsibilities

Holding Leaders Biblically Accountable

Loyalty can be a very endearing quality.  Standing along side a friend when they are going through a rough patch, or staying true to your spouse when he or she is going through some challenges is noble and a desirable quality. And when it comes to Christian leaders, we must do all we can to […]

Islam–A Threat and an Opportunity for Christians

Islam.  The very word stirs deep emotion in most Christians and non-believers alike.  Some people tend to generalize and place all Muslims in the tent of fanatic terrorists out to destroy all Christians and Jews and establish a world dominated by Sharia Law. Others—too many—have chosen to remain ignorant about the real threat of radical […]

50 Shades of Grey meets the pulpit!

Submitting or standing?

While some Christians are very involved in the culture wars in our nation, many don’t want anything to do with cultural or political fights. But, if our religious freedoms as Christians are under attack and if we do not stand up and fight back, will our government attempt to silence Christianity in our nation? And […]

When Godly men and women stand up for Christ

We want to reiterate that Stand Up For The Truth is not a program about politics. We don’t encourage anyone to “Reclaim 7 Mountains for Jesus” or “Take Back Our Government (Dominionism)” or even try to promote legislating morality, which we know is impossible without individuals first being convicted by the Holy Spirit. That being […]
