Radical Take Down of America: Has The Left Won?

Today, we are going to discuss two evil, influential political philosophies that have shaped the direction of our nation over the past 50-plus years as well as the devastating effects we are seeing from Americans who are (for the most part) unknowingly embracing them.
Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and The Cloward-Piven Strategy: these two progressive, Marxist philosophies and their implemented agendas have been used together to bring our nation to the precipice of economic and moral destruction. First, a quote from: Rules for Radicals: “In the beginning the organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems.”

Destroying America on Purpose

On today’s program we analyze the spiritual, financial and moral condition of the United States of America, a nation founded upon biblical teachings and moral Law. We discuss just how far we have fallen from our beginnings and how we have allowed enemies of America to infiltrate our government and undermine the Christian foundation of our nation.

Let’s look at Saul Alinsky’s infamous Rules for Radicals and the Cloward-Piven Strategy; both have been used to undermine our nation and set us up for a tremendous and perhaps a fatal national fall. Just how close are we, can this trend be reversed, and what are Christians to do about all this?

Tower of Babel 2: The March Toward Globalism

Just like humanity’s efforts in building the Tower of Babel that God destroyed, mankind is once again on a journey to proclaim itself “god”. Led by the United Nations and globalist economic, social and military forces, Progressives are determined to unite the world and form their version of “paradise” where mankind is unfettered by any constraints of God or His Word.

Gary Kah of hope for the World has studied the globalist movement for more than thirty years and joins us this morning for an update.

Lies, Hypocrisy and Cover-ups from the Left

There can be little doubt that the secular media in our nation on the whole is committed to the Socialist progressive movement, and the days of unbiased reporting of news is a thing of the past. Today we discuss the death of media objectivity; has the final nail been hammered in its coffin?

This morning, Mike and Dave discuss a report on how “climate change” data has been manipulated to advance radical environmentalism, and take a look at the hypocrisy of Senate Democrats in the handling of President Trump’s cabinet nominations. We will also look at the increasing pressure progressives are putting on American businesses to get in line with their agenda.

Plus, is media objectivity dead? Sadly, truth and facts are no longer priorities when political ideology reigns supreme.

The World Will Hate You, But…

Jesus warned His disciples in John 15 that because the world hated Him, it would also hate all those who believe in and follow Him as well. The times in which we live certainly bear out the truth of Jesus’ warning. But if we are not speaking God’s truth and living out the Bible, people may not know we are Christians.

Led by atheists, LBGTQ activists, a corrupt humanist court system, and a corrupt media, our nation is seeing a steady diet of lawsuits against the free speech of Christian individuals and organizations. Religious freedoms are being redefined.

This morning we cover some recent stories involving the godless push to eradicate biblical Christian morality in America, and we analyze some of the evidence of growing hatred and discrimination against Christians. Our special guest today is Brad Dacus, president of The Pacific Justice Institute.

A Widening Generational Gap Within Christianity?

Are we seeing this up and coming generation ushering in ideas principles that will change America and the professing Church in a very profound way? Jeff Strommen of HopeNet 360 joins us for a discussion on “generational differences.”

We’re also joined by Tim Chaffey of Midwest Apologetics to look at making certain when we “stand up for the truth” that we are standing on what the Bible says and not what we think it says.

A Nefarious Plot

With hundreds of millions of dollars spent, and the majority of Americans invested in the election of the next president, people have fallen into basically one of two “camps”: Those who believe Donald Trump will turn our nation around, and those who believe he will run it into the ground. The truth is this: Donald Trump is neither our savior, nor is he the Antichrist. But most Americans have been conditioned to look to men for solutions instead of humbling ourselves before God and seeking His solutions.

My guest this morning wrote a fascinating book laying out his thoughts on why America seems headed for disaster–and why it is futile to look for hope in a person or political party. Steve Deace is an author, radio talk show host and committed disciple of Jesus Christ who is a student of the Bible, history and politics. His book “A Nefarious Plot” has been widely hailed as an excellent critique of the challenges America faces and why we seem incapable of returning our nation to its former greatness.

Talking Prophecy, History, and the Election with Dr. Andy Woods

We welcome Dr. Andy Woods back to the program today. In His book, The Middle East Meltdown, the Coming Invasion of Israel, he explains how this coalition of nations will someday fulfill the prophecies of Ezekiel 38-39.

The Lord seems to be setting the stage for His return as never before. One of these major stage-setting trends that we are currently seeing is the rise of a coalition of nations that harbors a hostile intent toward Israel.

But a key question is will America repair and strengthen her ties as a strong ally to Israel once again?

Deception is Rampant, but What is Truth?

In John 18:38, Pontius Pilate asks Jesus one of the single greatest questions of the entire Bible: “What is truth?” That question is just as important today. It might seem like a very simple question, but when we see how the definition of truth has been twisted and redefined these days, it is vital to clarify from the Word of God.

We are also seeing the subsequent trouble our culture and the church is in, so there is no greater challenge facing us today than to define truth as God defines it instead of following the world and changing the definition to feed our flesh.

Cindy Hartline of Love for the Truth Radio joins us this morning to discuss truth and how it has been redefined to fit the agenda of sinful man.

In our second segment, David Fiorazo has our weekly Media Watch segment as we help you see the clever deception of secular media and how they attempt to indoctrinate people into their agenda.

Sliding into Humanism, Moral Relativism

I wrote my latest book, The Death of Christian Thought, to warn Christians how the dangerous lies of Humanism were infiltrating the hearts and minds of an increasing number of professing Christians, leading many away from God and toward eternal damnation. This morning in our second segment we cover a recent study that shows just how bad things are getting as the spiritual beliefs of younger people stray further and further away from the truth of God and His Word.

In our first segment we talk with Pastor Randy White about a very interesting book by Dave Breese titled Seven Men Who Rule the World from the Grave. We’ll look at seven men whose anti-Christian beliefs and philosophies continue to strongly influence people and society long after their deaths.

Who’s in Charge of the ‘Kingdom Now’?

A crucial doctrine of Christianity is the eventual return of Jesus Christ to judge all men and establish His everlasting Kingdom. Sadly, Bible prophecy is ignored in many churches so Christians are left to their own to try to understand that glorious day when our Lord returns to vanquish evil.

One question I love to ask professing Christians is this: When Jesus returns what does the world look like and what does He do? If their answer involves us, human beings establishing universal justice or cleaning up the world of poverty and pollution, then I know I am dealing with someone who embraces what is called “Dominion theology.” This is the idea that when men clean up the earth Jesus returns and we simply “hand over the keys” to Him so to speak. This is a dangerous form of Humanism, elevating man and discounting God.

One arm of Dominion Theology is called “Kingdom Now” theology and this morning we are joined by Pastor Andy Woods who has written several books discussing this movement.

What is the Problem in the Church?

In Matthew 16:18, the “church” is first mentioned in God’s Word as Jesus tells Peter that his revelation ‘Jesus is the Christ’ is the rock upon which Jesus will build His church. And “the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

Jesus established His church to spread the gospel and equip Christians to walk as His disciples, living as he lived in obedience to the Father. The Christian Church should starkly contrast secular culture and be light in an increasingly dark world. But is this happening in America? A strong argument can be made that the church is increasingly ineffective in transforming lives and the culture we live in.

Who is to blame for this problem? Is it church leadership failing to equip the believers? Or is it the people they lead? People who want enough Jesus to be saved, but not enough to be transformed into living a life holy and pleasing to God?

We explore these questions this morning with Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute.

So Many Questions… Only One Source for Truth

Every week we receive hundreds of emails, phone calls and texts from you, Stand Up for the Truth listeners, asking questions or making comments about the biblical issues we address on the program. I wish we had the time to respond to each one personally, but it is near impossible.

Today, we start a brand new regular segment where we share as many of your comments and questions as we can to hopefully help encourage and inform others with similar questions or concerns.

Our standard but important disclaimer: We will give the best advice and answers we can based on our understanding of God’s Word. But you must always rely on the Bible first, as the only source of eternal, inerrant, sufficient truth.

Thanks to listener questions, the subjects covered on today’s program are: church discipline, Andy Stanley’s series ‘Who Needs God,’ The Shack, apathy in the Christian church, United Church of God theology, IF Gathering led by Jennie Allen, Is Calvinism heresy, fundamental Christian truth vs liberal ‘feeling’ theology, moral relativism, examining the evidence proving the reliability of Scripture.

One of the things addressed on today’s program was Sozo prayer.
