Serving as God Desires–Or as We Desire?

When we were young children every boy wanted to be the Quarterback of the football team or the superhero; every young girl wanted to be the Princess or Queen. We all aspired to become someone great that the world would look up to and admire. But as members of the Body of Christ we are […]

The Infantilization of our nation’s youth

Today we are challenging no one and affirming everyone and standing for nothing. Okay, we’re not, but our next generation is. We have a whole generation of people who think they can be teenagers until they’re 50. There is a general sense that the youth of tomorrow’s generation refuse to grow up emotionally, socially and […]

Maintaining Order in a World of Chaos

  Just when you think this fallen world couldn’t get any more twisted or evil, the morning headlines greet us and the world again testifies to the depravity of man and the need for Jesus Christ.  An insecure former TV star spends millions on a sex change operation, and receives an award for “courage” by […]

Have you been through something traumatic?  Is someone you know going through a tragedy? How do you help them, or help yourself? Trauma is a feeling or emotion caused by an incident or a memory from something horrible. We can’t control the circumstance, but we can process, and seek the Hope we know comes only […]

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 […]

Can we please get our act together?

Today could go down in history as the day America gets its act together, repents of its political folly and stand once again with Israel. Maybe. Or not. As Prime Minister Benjamen Netanyahu prepares to address congress this morning to plead for common sense on Iran’s nuclear strategy, we’re seeing reports that President Obama Has […]

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 […]

Rob Bell: We’re moments away from the Church embracing gay marriage

Rob Bell and his wife, Kristen, are making headlines again, this time about gay marriage and the church.  Before we start, just a point to our emergent friends: When it comes to heretical teachers like Bell, we are NOT to “eat the meat and spit out the bones (advice found nowhere in Scripture), but instead […]

If I were a rich man…

How rich are you? Here is a fun little calculator to see how your income stacks up against the rest of the world. That’s how the world judges wealth, but what does the Lord God Almighty think? Consider what God has to say about: Rich man and Lazarus:  Luke 16:19-31 Rich fool: Luke 12:13 Seeking […]

Jude, Peter, and why watchmen can’t be ignored

Simon and Jude martyred; ms. circa 1455. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Did you know that Jude is the only book given entirely to the great apostasy?  The Book of Jude is only one chapter with 24 verses. It may be the shortest book of the Bible, but it is very important. The very first verse identifies […]

Truth: Reality Check

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. Romans 1:18 tells that by our unrighteousness, we suppresses the truth. What is reality? The Good News is true. The wrath of God is true.   While most of us are immersed in […]

The cracked foundation of the world

Is the ground moving under your feet? The shifting sands of the world are rapidly changing everything you thought you knew about the world you live in.

Return to the Word

How is it that we as Christians have gotten so far off track when it comes to staying in the Word of God? You’ve heard us talk about the massive deception that has crept into the Church in many different ways when we focus on movements, trends and even on ourselves. But today we’re going […]

Why the church needs more old elephants

So, what’s up with the elephant? The elephant analogy will make sense when you listen to today’s podcast with our guest, Dave Wager. Dave is president of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet […]

We have a choice?

  John 15:16 says,  “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.” If God is sovereign what does that say about the choices we make? […]

What do we need to please God?

Hebrews 11:6 tells us …without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. What does that mean?  What is faith? Dave Wager is our guest today. Dave is president of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute in northern Wisconsin. Dave is also co-hosts […]

Kingdom confusion

Being politically correct is something invented by the enemy of our souls to cause   Kingdom confusion.
