It’s Turning Ugly Out There

Bolstered by the sad decision of the U.S. Supreme Court that legalized homosexual “marriage”, secular progressives are pressing their temporary advantage, doing all they can to suppress and silence the voices of Christian churches and ministries.  They’ve found an ally in the court system and an opponent (Christians) who seem apathetic as a whole. Are […]

A “Christian Nation” Turned Pagan?

America was founded upon Judeo-Christian Law, recognizing that all rights come from God alone, and that we were totally dependent on God.  Growing up as a child these beliefs were often reflected in the television and movies we watched, and within society as a whole. These days some of the most popular television shows and […]

Politics and Christianity

Every four years Americans are given a choice between several political candidates to choose from as our next President.  And of course every one of them promises to “make America great again”.  As Christians we are, of course, to follow Jesus Christ.  Unfortunately, He is not on the ballot.  So how do we balance the […]

Applying 2 Timothy to the Church Today

When you think of the prophetic books of the Bible, 2 Timothy does not usually jump out first.  But Paul’s message to Timothy warns and encourages not only Timothy, but is also a great teaching for us who live in a post-modern world where individual “morality” has replaced the concept of absolute truth.  Paul’s words […]

Romans Chapter 1 in Complete Context

One of the challenges we face as Bible-believing Christians is this:  All of us at times hold firmly to the the verses we love, but want to discount the verses that make us uncomfortable.  But when we profess our complete faith in Jesus Christ and His Word, we do not have the option to pick […]

Pitiable Capitulating Pro-family Leaders – Part 1

Religious Right, Christian Right, religious conservatives, “values voters” and evangelicals  are a few of the titles given to the social and or political groups that wish to hang on to the “traditional family values” (TFV) that are passed on from one generation to the next.  These values are defined as “the moral and ethical principles […]

A Time For Real Christian Leadership

It does not take a rocket scientist to observe all that is going on around us and imagine a day soon when the world and the church may be thrown into chaos.  The Middle East is on the verge of implosion as radical Islam is taking over nation after nation.  Iran has reiterated it will […]

Packers Robbed–While God is Smeared. What Angers Us Most?

Green Bay Packers fans—yes, they were robbed Monday night in Seattle. Those that know me know I have officiated all major sports on the High School level for two decades.  They also know I am continually defending sports officials as they have a very difficult job.  I have even asked for patience and understanding on […]

Welcome to Full Blown Apostasy in America

Fellow Christians, things are getting very hairy in our great nation.  On the secular front, sixteen trillion dollars in debt and a weak economy are threatening to drag our nation into an economic depression we may never get out of.  Morally and spiritually, we are headed toward bankruptcy as we abandon the Judeo-Christian laws and […]

Holding Leaders Biblically Accountable

Loyalty can be a very endearing quality.  Standing along side a friend when they are going through a rough patch, or staying true to your spouse when he or she is going through some challenges is noble and a desirable quality. And when it comes to Christian leaders, we must do all we can to […]

Biblical Social Justice

In Matthew 19:16-26, Jesus seems to have a stern admonishment for wealthy people:  “Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven.   Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich […]

Leadership and the Willow Creek Summit

I confess that I may have been a little hard on the Willow Creek Leadership Summit on today’s show, but I think we live in a time when tough questions and a tough self-examination is sometimes necessary.  By no means are we saying you should not attend, just understand that not every leader presented lines […]

The War on Christianity–Are Our Leaders Prepared?

The battle over the statement on marriage by Chik-Fil-A executive Dan Cathy has stirred up strong emotions throughout the country. Radical homosexual activists and humanists are attacking Chik-Fil-A hoping to destroy them because of their biblical stance on marriage, and around the country hundreds of thousands of Christians are rallying to support Chik-Fil-A. However it […]

The Real Story Behind the Hatred of Chick-Fil-A

The recent uproar and reaction to Ckick-Fil-A President Dan Cathey’s proclamation in the belief of biblical marriage as defined by God is fascinating to watch on many fronts.  As in all circumstances, it is important we take a step back and see the big picture of what is going on here?  Is it an attack […]

Will We Really Stand Strong to the End?

The Christian church in America is suffering from a lack of leaders who can think strategically and see the big picture.  Many have been lulled to sleep by seeker friendly movements, purpose driven theology and tolerance, marginalizing the complete gospel so as to seem loving and relevant.  While the numbers of people who claim to […]

Know the End of the Book

Knowing how a story ends brings a whole new perspective to whatever it is we are reading.  When we read a murder novel or watch a mystery movie not knowing who the criminal is, we often miss subtle clues.  However when we know how the story ends and who the criminal is, and read the […]

Headed Over a Spiritual and Moral Cliff?

Critiquing traditional foundations of our society is never easy—but sometimes it is necessary.  An objective look at where our nation and the church in America is headed can lead to only one conclusion—we are headed into a spiritual and moral abyss from which we may never recover.  How did it come to this? No single […]

Proper Spiritual Balance

The life of a true Christian—a disciple of Jesus Christ—is one of balance.  Jesus warned us that the path to eternal life is narrow, and few find it; and finding that proper spiritual balance is crucial to walking that narrow path. That balance shows up in several situations:  We are to walk in the grace […]

Social Justice: The guise of helping the poor

Christians in all denominations and in non-denominational churches are being duped. The rise of the social justice and emergent church movements is spreading a false gospel message and distorting God’s very words—and a growing number are falling prey to it. The social justice movement are pushing a radical political agenda that covertly supports homosexual marriage […]

The National Association of Evangelicals and the Lies of Climate Change

Yesterday’s show on Agenda 21 was hopefully an eye-opener for Christians.  The growing power of the United Nations and the control it is trying to impose on the life of every person in the world should be a wake-up call for Christians.  The U.N. is an organization that is rotten to the core, continually promoting […]
