What do you mean, ‘God is Sovereign’?

When we claim to know and love God, but cannot give an answer when tragedy happens around us, we look foolish to the world. When Rob Bell was doing a book tour for “Love Wins”, he appeared on MSNBC to promote his book right after the tragedy in Japan where a tsunami killed hundreds of people. Martin Basheer of MSNBC asked Bell a question: “With this tsunami that killed hundreds of people—did it happen because God was not powerful enough to prevent it or because He didn’t care that hundreds would die?” Bell fumbled around, as he usually does on any deep theological question and then just said something like “Well some things are just best left alone and not talked about…” Rob Bell missed a golden opportunity to share the gospel with millions of viewers that day, but given his misguided theology we have no reason to believe he would have presented the true gospel anyway.

But the point is that the sovereign nature of God, along with man’s ability to have free will and make decisions on his own, is an important issue we should discuss and understand to the best of our ability so we can answer serious questions unbelievers—and even Christians—may have when tragedy strikes.

Our guest this morning Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to discuss what it means that God is sovereign and how we reconcile that with the fact God has given men free will to act.

Today, we look at Abendroth’s previous book, The Sovereignty and Supremacy of King Jesus: Bowing to the Gracious Despot.

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.
