Certainly this generation faces enormous challenges as public education and media have succeeded at indoctrinating many of them into a secular humanist world view. And this generation of younger people will one day lead our nation and our churches; some already are! So how can we help them turn (back) to God instead of away from Him? Religion and Culture expert, Dr. Alex McFarland joins us today to discuss this and other concerns.Read More

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.Read More
We discuss the continuing meltdown of the Left, their reaction to Donald Trump’s election, his early policies, and Supreme Court Justice nominee, Neil Gorsuch. Also, last night, hate filled riots broke out at California Berkeley, making Saul Alinsky, Barack Obama, Jim Wallis, the liberal media, and Hillary Clinton (to name a few) proud. Plus, Mike’s commentary.Read More
There are many professing Christians who selectively reference the Bible to justify their personal beliefs and worldview; yet they completely ignore the Bible when it contradicts other personal beliefs. This is one form of hypocrisy creeping into the professing church that needs to be addressed.Read More
This morning, we discuss an article from conservative columnist Dennis Prager, outlining the fundamental differences in the values and beliefs of progressives and conservatives. Left vs. Right in a nutshell. In our first segment, we introduce you to Mark Taylor, General Manager of KNEO radio in Missouri.Read More
Today, Donald J. Trump is sworn in as the next President of the United States. More than 70 Democratic congressmen are boycotting the inauguration; thousands of progressives are demonstrating in Washington; and the mainstream press is fueling the delusion that he is not qualified and only won the election because of “Russian interference.”
Many conservatives are confident Trump will turn things around quickly; and some Christian leaders are insisting that “God weighed in” leading to Trump’s election. Never before has a President inherited such a mess with such fervent opposition on the one side, and unbridled optimism and expectations on the other side. Is President Trump set up to fail? We’ll explore that possibility this morning.
In our first segment we are joined by Daniel Weiss of Brushfires Foundation, an organization calling on and equipping Christian churches to educate the public on the crucial biblical and social issues of our times such as marriage, pornography, sex-trafficking, abortion and euthanasia.Read More
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?Read More
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.Read More
Today’s American youth are being indoctrinated by an unbiblical, liberal, social justice education system – even at many Christian universities. A local Catholic college posted a sad and alarming letter to students that really shows just how poorly college kids are being “prepared” for life’s realities.
First, we check in with Don Venoit of Midwest Christian Outreach, who has written an interesting article titled “How to be David in the Court of a Mad King.”Read More
Have you ever bitten into an apple that looks healthy and nutritious, only to find out it had been infested by a worm and was rotten on the inside? Things are not always as they seem, and Christians who cannot discern truth from clever deception can easily become puppets for evil while thinking they are doing God’s will.
Stand Up for the Truth radio started nearly six years ago when this ministry had to take a tough stand against Jim Wallis of Sojourners, a closet Marxist masquerading as a Christian, who had been invited to be the keynote speaker at a Christian youth event. At the time we took some hits for our stance, but time and experience has proven Wallis and his organization is a front for anti-Christian values like abortion and same sex marriage.
This morning, we discuss an open letter from AmericanEvangelicals.org exposing who is behind the funding of progressive Christian organizations, and why this movement is so dangerous to the church and America.

In a little more than six weeks Americans will elect a new President to lead our nation for the next four years. One thing we do know is that elections have consequences. Robert Meyer of Renew America has written a thought provoking commentary on ways Christians should view this or any election and he joins us to share his thoughts. Also, Tony Campolo has five reasons why he does not consider himself an “Evangelical Christian.”Read More
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?Read More
The Trump Administration’s Department of Justice announced Wednesday that it would drop an order from President Obama threatening to punish schools that did not allow transgender students to use bathrooms or shower facilities that coincide with their “perceived gender,” returning at least a shred of sanity to public education. But the battle for religious freedom and sanity marches on. This morning we discuss the story of a Christian business owner who was threatened by the U.S. Department of Agriculture because he dared have articles about the biblical view on marriage in his company’s break room.
In our first two segments today we talk about the “Church Growth Movement” with author and Pastor Gary Gilley who has studied this movement at length. First, what is the role of the church and its mission according to the Bible? Is bigger always better? What are the advantages and disadvantages of belonging to a mega-church? What kind of church is best and more conducive to growth for a young Christian? check out the podcast for plenty of wisdom from Pastor Gilley.Read More
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.Read More
Many of us want to believe we are strong, independent, intelligent, adventurous, and even invincible. In the Bible however, God compares us to sheep – over and over. Not a flattering comparison, but there are many reasons for this. First, since we are the sheep of His pasture, we are dependent on Him. We also have a Good Shepherd who feeds us and tends to our needs.
If we dwell in the shelter God provides, and if we abide in the shadow of the Almighty as Psalm 91:1 suggests, then we are protected. When we stay close enough to Jesus our Shepherd, we can rest in His shadow and grow in His presence. Our responsibility is to stay close to Him, keep listening to His voice, and to not stray. Though we often follow many people and things in this life, we were made to follow after God, our Leader.Read More
We must be undaunted in establishing God’s Word as the basis of our thinking, our faith, and our lives. There are many within the church who do not believe God’s Word in its entirety and do not believe in the deity of Jesus Christ. Truth is on the line here as we try to navigate a godless and rapidly changing culture.Read More
Charles Spurgeon once rightly said, “Discernment is not a matter of simply telling the difference between right and wrong; rather it is telling the difference between right and almost right.” Today, Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss discernment, fake news, and having the correct biblical perspective on our times and how to prepare for the challenging days our nation and church face.Read More
