A Message for Carnal Christians

A Message for Carnal Christians

I was doing some research on false conversions and stumbled across this very sobering article via  the Airo blog. Check it out and be sure to view the video at the end. It is surely moving, and might inspire a share or two: “People Who WILL NOT Go to Heaven“ For God did not call us […]

What is Worth Fighting For?

So are you a Calvinist or an Arminian?  Better make up your mind quick because your eternal salvation is at stake!  Now we know that is not true but I think a discussion on these viewpoints is worthwhile.  While most of us “rank and file” Christians don’t think about this debate much I have seen […]

Manifesting: Which spirit?

This is a video posted by IHOP of one of its interns, a young girl named Katie, sharing her testimony about how the Spirit of God manifested in her, and continues to manifest to this day. Watch and discern. What is she saying? What is her body language communicating? How would you test the spirits […]

What kind of church do you attend?

So asks Todd Friel of Wretched Radio, as he compares and contrasts two very different types of churches. ONe is alive and well in the world today; the other is one that speaks Truth boldly. Which on is Christ’s Bride?

Our New year's Resolution as Christians

Well another year, 2011, is almost in the books.  Many will be taking some time to make new year’s resolutions—lose some weight, spend more time with the family, maybe give up some nasty habit—and sadly, most will fail.  Because years of bad habits are difficult to erase with a simple resolution—it takes dedication and hard […]

What Kind of Christian Are You?

A couple days ago Amy and I spent some quality time with a local Pastor who is a frequent listener to Stand Up For the Truth.  He stopped by the station to introduce himself and get to know us a little better.  The pastor asked me an interesting question as we began our discussion:  “How […]

Repent! Jesus is coming soon

Prepare Your Heart For His Return

In Matthew Chapter 25, Jesus responds to the Apostles’ inquiry as to when the final days would come.  Jesus responded by saying that only the Father knows the designated time but that we could discern the season by observing and knowing His Word. Now people in every generation have thought that surely they might see […]

What is the Latter Rain movement?

The Latter Rain movement is an influence within Pentecostalism which teaches that the Lord is pouring out His Spirit again, as He did at Pentecost, using believers to prepare the world for His second coming. The term “latter rain” was first used in the early 1940s, and comes from Joel 2:23, “Be glad then, ye […]

A missive against false teachers

Reposting from Ken Silva’s blog today. It captures how we as the Church are veering away from the Truth of God’s Word. We need to be reminded about what Jesus said would happen to us as we get closer to His return in these last days: Just as in times past there were false prophets […]

Finding and Staying On the Narrow Path

I hope today’s show causes each of us to take a step back and take a deep look at our relationship with God.  Unfortunately as human beings, the more we hear or read about any subject, the easier it is to become rote or “same old same old”.  While God never changes, he does call […]

Apologetics: Explaining our faith in an ever-emerging world

In today’s changing world, what is the role of apologetics in our Christian faith?  Some think we as Christians must be excellent apologists for our faith while others think it is meaningless, because only the Holy Spirit can remove spiritual scales from the eyes of non-believers, so we are wasting our time with apologetics to […]

Love is a battlefield

Question: Do you believe the Bible is true? That it is the inerrant Word of God? If you say yes, you are in a growing minority of Christians who believe as you do. A recent poll of Christians shows 66 percent of us believe that the Bible is not true. Why is that? Because a […]

A great divide: The growing emergent church

The Church in America (and around the world for that matter) is seeing a great division by those who are disdainful of God’s Word. Those who have built a new paradigm are teaching Christians to doubt prophecy, question Jesus’ substitutionary atonement and believe that all are saved. And yet the New Paradigm church is growing […]

"Why Theophostic Prayer Ministry is Neither Prayer Nor Christian Ministry"

Theophostics comes from the Greek theo (God) and phostic (light), and it is often associated with the Christian Inner Healing Movement. Proponents claim that people are being delivered from phobias, depressions, anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, dissociative personality disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorders, sexual addictions, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorders, and homosexuality through Theophostic principles. Here is an interesting article by […]

Teaching a Cheap Salvation?

This weekend I was listening to an excellent sermon by John MacArthur.  He was teaching out of Luke 13 where Jesus warns of the narrow path that leads to eternal life and the wide path that leads to eternal damnation. In verse 24 Jesus says: “Make every effort to enter through the narrow door, because […]
