Spiritual Truth vs. Moral Relativism

How do we lovingly dialogue and confront moral relativists who claim truth doesn’t exist? This morning we read an “Open Letter to a Relativist”– one woman’s response to a moral relativist whose beliefs seem to speak for a growing number of people these days.

We also check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action to discuss realistic legislation that can be enacted to curtail, and perhaps one day, end the tragedy of abortion in our nation. Can abortion eventually be eliminated? Or do we have to settle for incremental victories from time to time?

The Words We Use and How We Define Them

The words we use, and how we define them, are critically important.  I am seeing an alarming pattern where professing Christians, and often the people they follow, are just slightly twisting words or attaching a human definition...

Spiritual Transformation or Spiritual Formation?

Words have meanings. When we try to replace God’s definitions for the words He uses in the Bible with humanist definitions we can find ourselves on the path to deception and danger. One of the movements we must be knowledgeable about and take to the scriptures is “Spiritual Formation.”

Pastor and author Gary Gilley has written an excellent book called Out of Formation talking about the Spiritual Formation Movement and he joins us this morning to discuss it.

Bible Prophecy Lacking in American Churches

Most Biblical scholars believe that more than one quarter of the Bible contains prophetic teachings–yet the subject of prophecy is largely ignored in many churches these days. Our guest this morning believes we are living in the most prophetic times since the first coming of Jesus Christ. But are most Christians aware of the prophecies, particularly regarding Israel. being fulfilled in our times–or do they even care?

Author and Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to discuss his new book, When the Lion Roars and shares why he believes the study of biblical prophecy is crucial for Christians.

How Worldview Influences Our Reality

It always intrigues me when two people can look at the same set of facts and come away with different conclusions. These differing conclusions are of course influenced by our perception of the world and what we have been taught–correctly or erroneously.

As Christians, we see archaeological and scientific discoveries happening regularly that confirm the truth of the Bible. Yet those who stubbornly reject God refuse to see the truth because of ignorance, pride, or a hard heart. The Bible is more than just a religious book–it is an historical book that gives us a look at the creation of the world, along with its future.

Joining us this morning to discuss how credible science is confirming the truth of the Scriptures is Jay Seegert of The Creation Education Center.

The Danger of Allegorical Scripture

We know the Word of God is absolute truth. But these days some are using verses out of context to deliver a message that differs or sometimes even contradicts the meaning of the scriptures. Other sermons might feature a Bible verse or two in a cameo appearance, but the truth can become lost in a sea of personal stories, allegory or meaningless chatter.

Pastor Gary Gilley of Southern View Chapel joins us to discuss the signs serious Christians should watch out for when listening to a sermon. How can we tell if Scripture is being minimized or watered-down? How do we know if we are truly growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? (2 Peter 3:18)

We also take a look at the movement of “Progressive Internationalism” being pushed by the United Nations and other world leaders. Are one or more of our presidential candidates disciples of this movement?

If You Build it, They Might Come

We would all love to see a growth in the number of strong Christian churches in America. Over the past fifteen years there has been a fervent effort to plant more churches, but the statistics show that pretty much for every new church that opens, another closes its doors. Is it time we rethink our strategy on Church planting? Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss the Church Plant Movement and its current shortcomings.

We are also joined by Dr. Cal Beisner of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to discuss President Trump’s nominee to head up the EPA. Is there reasonable common ground that bible-believing Christians can find with environmentalists?

Questioning Evangelism

No, we don’t mean we are questioning the necessity and value of sharing the gospel; we mean using questions in our conversations with others to share the good news of Jesus Christ. How many times do we try to witness to lost people only to find our efforts thwarted by people who seem like they have their minds made up and just don’t want to hear what we are saying?

We look to the example of Jesus who often taught using questions. Joining us today is Jay Seegert to discuss the power of asking questions and how to get people to think.
