How Should A Christian Live In A Culture Given Over To A Depraved Mind?

Posted by Christine Pack at Sola Sisters and reprinted with permission Before I was born again, I had a number of homosexual friends, and for some reason, I often ended up being a sympathetic ear for them. This was before homosexuality was accepted as normal, as it is today, and many of them expressed to […]

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 […]

Chipping Away at Church

The Christian Church in America is under increasing pressure to compromise with and conform to the “values” of this fallen, sinful world.  While it is no surprise that the world hates the Christian Church, it is alarming how many who profess to be Christians within the church seem to be active or passive participants in […]

Defending the Biblical Account of Creation

The battle for the hearts and minds of our youth is being waged aggressively within the media and public education.  One of the most sinister lies being told is that God did not create all things–rather that life is just a random act of a universe that magically came into existence on its own. Why […]

Is the Christian Church in America Losing Its Influence?

Is the Christian Church in America losing its identity and influence?  Or simple learning to better relate to the secular world around us? Jesus commanded us to reach out into the sinful world and share the good news of the gospel of salvation.  But He also warned us to not conform to the deception and […]

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 […]

The Narrow Christian Path

Jesus taught us the path to eternal life was narrow and that few find it.  Along both sides of the narrow path are numerous distractions and dangers lurking to pull us away from God and His eternal Word of Truth.  And if we take our eyes off the path we could easily stray off it […]

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 […]

A sister and a soldier: Update on Caryl Matrisciana

An update on our friend, Caryl Matrisciana: I spoke with her a few nights ago, and she has encouraged me to share her latest newsletter released this morning to update everyone on her battle with cancer. I don’t want you to miss two words in that last sentence: She encouraged me.  That’s the kind of […]

Progressive Christianity

Today we are looking at Progressive Christianity. It is an incredibly dangerous movement, and quite frankly, it is the yeast that has taken the Church away from the truth and toward a more tolerant, sin-affirming direction that is muddied with mushy theology. How can you tell if it has seeped into your church? And if […]

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 […]

The Battle is Over — But Just Beginning

There is some irony in the fact that the controversy over Religious Freedom Laws in the United States has blown up during the week when we as Christians remember and celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who bore the wrath of God against sin, so that we might be […]

Watchmen’s full plate

Then there was the story of the “pastor” who doesn’t believe in God. But if you question his faith, he’ll get very offended and make you feel guilty: Lots of other news today, including, Why we’re seeing “Mantle Madness”, and LifeWay pulls Heaven visitation books. Joining us on today’s program is someone who knows Mormonism […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Juvenilization of American Christianity

Americans of all ages are not sure they want to grow up. It is common to hear thirty-, forty-, or even fifty-year-olds say things like, “I guess I have to start thinking of myself as an adult now.” Many emerging adults ages eighteen to twenty-three want to get married and have children eventually, but they […]

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 […]
