Holiness is what we need

Lately God has me spending a lot of time praying over a message in the Book of Hebrews, Chapters 5 and 6.  The author is chastising believers about their slow progress as followers of Jesus.  Starting in Hebrews 5:12, he says: “In fact though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone […]

Rejoice In Our Suffering

Hey, I admit it—we cover some news on this show that can get downright depressing sometimes.  Our country turning its back on God more each day; political leaders who seem to lack any principles or good judgment; so-called Christians looking to blend Islam and Christianity.  It could be easy to get down and depressed about […]

Real Leaders Stand Up

You know, deception would be easy to spot if it wore a neon sign that said “False teachings here”.  Unfortunately, satan is far too clever for that.  Instead, as scripture says, he often appears as an angel of light—with words that sound good but lead to lies and destruction. Satan tempted Eve with what sounded […]

Are Both Feet in the Kingdom?

In Matthew 13:45, Jesus teaches that the Kingdom of God is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.  When he found one of great value, he sold everything he had and bought it.  Everything this merchant owned was worth that one pearl—so he gave it all up so he might have it. I’ve been thinking […]

On naming names: Does the local church get a pass?

People have asked us about why we take the stand that we do, and why we’re not pointing out to people which churches are bringing false teachings into the Body of Christ. How come it is okay to name names when it comes to people like Rob Bell, Rick Warren and others, but the local […]

How are we connected to God?

Of the hundreds of emails I receive about Stand Up For the Truth, the most common question I get is this:  “What is the single greatest threat to the church these days?”  New Age; Chrislam; social justice; emergent church? Now I think these are all major threats to the Body of Christ.  But they are […]

Compromise and Chrislam

Dave Wager talked yesterday about how so many teachings and opinions these days are a little bit of this and a little bit of that.  Some are mixing teachings from the bible, Islam, the business world and other sources so much that there is no distinct message or flavor in the message any more. We […]

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. […]

Will You Be Deceived?

In Ecclesiastes 1:9 Solomon wrote:  “What has been will be again; what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.” How very true, especially when it comes to false teachings and false prophets.  The Apostle Paul continually warned new Christians about dangerous false teachings by the Judaizers and Gnostics.  […]

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 […]
