Discerning and fruit: The question of Todd Bentley

These days we are bombarded by messages and invitations that entice us to climb on board with our prayers, support, our presence and our money. Just this week in our hometown in Northeastern Wisconsin, we’re being asked to look into a visiting Christian leader named Todd Bentley, and to warn listeners about some things in […]

A Dangerous Deception

Deception is everywhere these days for Christians. There are the blatant attacks on the Word and truth of God through movements like Chrislam, The Emergent Church and Social Justice organizations. And there is a growing movement to lull Christians into beliefs of humanism, collective salvation and even universalism which accepts all gods as equally valid. […]

What is "Chrislam," and why should you care?

On today’s show, we’re talking about Chrislam, a movement in some churches with an agenda to blend two different faiths into one. We think that this is eventually a path toward a one world religion that the Bible warns about. Here is a basic description of Chrislam as a starting point for discussion: Question: “What […]

It Is Time To Truly Stand Up

First, a big thank you to Dave Wager for sitting in for me the past few days.  I am always amazed at Dave’s ability to take issues we face these days and tie them in with God’s Word to show how there really is nothing new under the sun.  It was fascinating to listen to […]

Ashamed of Jesus?

In Luke 10:2 Jesus states: “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into the harvest field. Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves” Sheep among wolves—not a very comforting thought is it? We are sent out into a world […]

Life After Harold Camping

Well, May 21st passed and no rapture or final judgment from God. Sadly, thousands spent all their money on billboards and contributions to Harold Camping to help deliver a message that any devoted Christian should know is a reckless statement. Jesus plainly told his apostles that only God the Father knew the exact hour of […]

Will Israel Stand Firm?

Watching events unfold in the Middle East always brings me mixed emotions. Christians have a mandate to defend Israel and the Jews according to the bible. In John 4:22 Jesus declares that salvation is from the Jews. As God’s chosen people, the Jews were the people God chose to deliver His Holy Word and bring […]

Social Justice: Wolves in Sheeps Clothing

Christians in all denominations and in non-denominational churches are being duped. The rise of the social justice and emergent church movements is spreading a false gospel message and distorting God’s very words—and a growing number are falling prey to it. The social justice movement, represented locally by groups like JOSHUA and ESTHER are pushing a […]

Worshiping "Mother Earth"?

There can be little doubt that there is a comprehensive worldwide movement to kick God off His throne and replace Him with the worship of “mother earth”. The United Nations will soon be voting on giving “mother earth” human rights and the US seems willing to go along with this insanity. Imagine how this will […]

Goats in Sheep's Clothing?

Are we truly Jesus’ sheep…or are we still acting like goats? Ask a Christian that question and his response will probably be “Of course I am a sheep!” But do our actions belie that answer? And just what does it really mean to be one of Jesus’ sheep? Sheep are among the most naïve of […]

Sheep Being Led to Slaughter?

As Christians in America, we live a very blessed life. While Christians in the Middle East and Asia put their lives on the line every day practicing their faith, we live here with tremendous freedom to worship. So you might consider it impossible to think that real persecution could ever come to our nation. But […]

What Do I mean When I Say "I am a Christian"?

When someone would say “I am a Christian” it used to be that it was pretty clear what they stood for.  These days that statement should cause us to dig a little deeper and question just what a person means when they make that statement. Being a “Christian” these days can range from a strict […]

Questioning God's Nature

In Mark Chapter 13, Jesus warns us of the great deception that will occur before His return.  In verse 22 Jesus states: “For false christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect—if that were possible.” Stop and really let that sink in for a moment.  Signs and wonders […]

Afraid? Or excited?

I confess that when I first became a Christian all the talk of a conspiracy working toward a one world government or religion seemed a bit far fetched to me.  I always thought people who wrote about these subjects seemed just a tad on the paranoid side.  But as I immersed myself in the prophetic […]

How Good Is Good Friday?

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (11.5MB) Today we hear your thoughts on Good Friday, a day that is rarely seen as “good.” We can often downplay Good Friday, or avoid going to Good Friday services because we don’t like the sadness and silence. In our hearts we yearn for the Resurrection part–we want […]

Pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church.

Watchman or Pharisee?

Earlier this week Warren Smith shared his concerns for New Age teachings he believes are infiltrating the minds and hearts of many Americans and some Christians.  When he discussed Rick Warren we knew there would be some strong reactions.  And I want to sincerely thank Chad for sharing his thought with us on the subject […]
