The Message of the Message “Bible”

There are many translations of The Bible we can choose from these days.  Some are more literal while some take great liberties to present the original language in a more ‘reader friendly” format.  Then there are those that are not really Bibles at all–and today we discuss a paraphrase of the Bible that is becoming […]

Remaining Faithful in a World of Humanism

Next Monday the U.S. Supreme Court should weigh in on the defining decision regarding homosexual marriage in our nation.  If the Court dictates that homosexual marriage is a protected right the church will face a very interesting future.  If you believe the Church will not come under heavy pressure to affirm and support unbiblical marriage–well […]

Is Your Church and You a “Right Fit”?

The Bible teaches us that Christian fellowship is crucial to our lives as believers.  In this “market/consumer driven” era in which we live church hopping has become the norm as a growing number of professing Christians seek comfort over growth.  We would rather have a church that fits our lifestyle than be in a fellowship […]

Ten problems with the “salt and light” excuse for feeding children to the State.

Here in 2015 America, there is little doubt that we are being blessed by God with a return by more and more of His people to the loving detail of His Word when it comes to the vital, culture-shaping subject of children’s education. Let’s not lose sight of this beautiful truth. Let’s celebrate it and thank God […]

When the Bible gets hairy. (Or: Is it right for men to have long hair?)

For some strange reason, I seem to be asked far more than most about the propriety (or impropriety) of men wearing long hair. Okay, so maybe my being asked about this fairly regularly really isn’t so strange, weird or surprising at all, since I just happen to have long hair myself. Very long hair, actually, and I tentatively […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

In Defense of the the Bible?

A growing number of professing Christians are letting go of the doctrine that the Bible is all true. In fact a growing number also want to see a homosexual president in office!  We’ll have those survey results later in the program…but that first one is very concerning as we hope to pass on the hope […]

Exactly What is a “Church”?

As we prepare for our Watchman Conference tonight, our keynote speaker Elijah Abraham joins us to discuss what Jesus meant when He said “I will build my church.”  What is a “church” in America compared to the “church” in countries where proclaiming your faith in Jesus Christ might lead to imprisonment or execution?  Is the […]

On scolding Christians

Today we’re going to cover an interesting story about prayer, faith, scolding and fleecing the flock.  One popular Prosperity/name-it-claim-it pastor recently made a very public announcement that he is trusting God to give him a 65 million private jet. Today he is scolding all those Christians who criticized his campaign, and said that there’s no […]

Is Christian Persecution Coming to America?

Every day it seems comes news of more murders of Christians in Africa and The Middle East.  In fact it has become so common, many media outlets seem to think it is no longer “news worthy”. In America we are still safe.  But for how long?  Is it just a matter of time before Christians […]

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 […]

The so-called “Family Values” Christians

(“Pitiable Capitulating Pro-Family Leaders, Part II”) Before the term pro-family was hijacked by liberals (evangelical was also hijacked) supporters were largely made up from conservative Protestants, Roman Catholics, Mennonites, Mormons, Muslims, and Jews, naming just a few.  For the sake of the country, religious conservatives agreed to set aside their differences and pull together a […]
