Social Justice: Wolves in Sheeps Clothing

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, represented locally by groups like JOSHUA and ESTHER are pushing a […]

Which Cross Are You Carrying?

One week ago today, we were focused on the death of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior on the cross.  We were reminded of the painful torture and death he willingly experienced for us to take away our sin and bring us freedom from the bondage of sin.  Has the memory of what He did […]

Are We Really Standing Up For the Truth?

Recently my quiet time of prayer to God has centered a great deal around one particular passage.  In Romans 8:28 Paul writes “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him who have been called to His special purpose.” As we research and discuss important and sometimes […]

Questioning God's Nature

In Mark Chapter 13, Jesus warns us of the great deception that will occur before His return.  In verse 22 Jesus states: “For false christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect—if that were possible.” Stop and really let that sink in for a moment.  Signs and wonders […]

Earlier this week Warren Smith shared his concerns for New Age teachings he believes are infiltrating the minds and hearts of many Americans and some Christians.  When he discussed Rick Warren we knew there would be some strong reactions.  And I want to sincerely thank Chad for sharing his thought with us on the subject […]

Who Are We Following?

Tough and challenging discussion on air today.  None of us wants to believe dangerous false teachings are creeping into the church.  But the reality is, Christianity in the United States is under a full frontal, comprehensive attack.  New Age Spirituality is being presented in teachings of the Emergent Church and social justice movements.  Even well […]

The State of the Church in America

Today we discussed defending the truth of God and His Word.  Yesterday we discussed Christian leadership; and recently we shared some alarming statistics that claim only one third of self-professed born again Christians believe the bible is the absolute truth of God.  Put all these together and it paints an interesting, but alarming picture of […]

Courage and Real Love

Have you ever been in a church where the issue and threat of Islam was discussed?  Well I haven’t, and I am left wondering why that is. Islam is a rapidly growing religion and is attracting many youth, even here in the United States.  It teaches worship of a false god and is a real […]

Compromising our Christian Faith?

We talk a lot about Islam on Stand Up For the Truth.  And we do this for a couple reasons which I would like to share.  First we discuss it because Islam is a real threat to Christianity.  Islam is both a religion and a philosophy of government and these two components cannot be divided.  […]

No Compromises

Image via Wikipedia In Matthew 24, Jesus gives us a chilling look at the final days before His return.  In verse 10 He states:  “At that time many will fall away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people.”  There can be no […]

A Romans 8:28 Moment?

The coming release of Rob Bell’s new book questioning the existence or make up of hell is sure to spark serious debate within the church.  And it may surprise you to hear me say I think it is a good thing.  Really, I’m glad Bell has decided to tackle this issue and write the book.  […]
