The Next Leaders in the Church

Every generation tends to look at the previous one and sees issues and problems they are determined to fix.  There is a natural human seed of rebellion in us that tells us the older generation is backwards thinking and steeped in tradition–and that “our” generation will get things right. But as the Word of God […]

Call To Unity–But Just Who is Calling?

Everyone from the Pope, to the President of the United States, to the United Nations, to many Evangelical Christian leaders, have been calling for world unity and peace.  And while the words “unity” and “peace” are appealing, one must look behind the scenes and ask just what would that “unity and peace” look like?  And […]

The Message of the Message “Bible”

There are many translations of The Bible we can choose from these days.  Some are more literal while some take great liberties to present the original language in a more ‘reader friendly” format.  Then there are those that are not really Bibles at all–and today we discuss a paraphrase of the Bible that is becoming […]

The homogenized church of man

The Book of Revelation clearly identifies the False Prophet as one from a fake Christianity. It will support Satan’s agenda on earth.  It will syncretize elements of experiential New Age, purpose-driven, signs and wonders, Church Growth, the Social Gospel and Universalism, and of course some elements of truth. And that’s how it will trick millions […]

Kids’ church lemonade stand raises money for same-sex ‘marriage’

At first I thought this was a spoof. But LifeSiteNews carries this story. Not surprisingly, the denomination is Unitarian Universalist, of which I am very familiar having been raised in that secular humanist sect.  Here is the story: Nothing so calls to mind the spirit of innocence than a child’s summertime lemonade stand. However, at […]

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 […]

Unity? Or Dysfunction in the Body of christ?

About once a week we receive a phone call or comment about how the listener feels Stand Up For the Truth is dividing the Body of Christ.  They are understandably concerned that when we discuss controversial issues within our faith that it can lead to dissension and arguments.  They state how we need unity in […]

Is The Church being Lulled To Sleep?

Is The Church being Lulled To Sleep?

  As I study this growing movement of Universalism and how it is infecting the Christian Church in America, there are a couple subtle, but important distinctions we must understand when confronting this movement of apostasy. First, the character and nature of God.  Universalists will often state that “God is love.”  Well, that is accurate, […]

Truth and alignment: What do we rally 'round?

Truth and alignment: What do we rally 'round?

Today we continue dissecting the Christian Universalist Movement, and its theology that is gaining popularity and strength with Christian book authors (like The Shack), writers, speakers and popular pastors (like Rob Bell). Could you be absorbing some of these ideas without even knowing it? And in our first segment we check in with  Julaine Appling […]

"The Shack"--enter or steer clear?

"The Shack"–enter or steer clear?

I remember when “The Shack” first came out—it seemed every Christian I knew was reading it.  A friend gave me a copy and encouraged me to read it.  As I started I just didn’t feel right about how the author was portraying God and I stopped reading it. I saw my friend who gave me […]

We are ONE!

We are ONE!

Stand Up For The Truth is celebrating its first anniversary of our maiden voyage last December 6th, 2010. Did you know that the spark for this show was based on our own lack of awareness of these issues? In 2009, Mike LeMay was asked an important, game-changing question: Are you, as General Manager of Christian […]

Christian Leaders and Islam–How Do We Respond?

Yesterday our nation commemorated the tenth anniversary of a cowardly attack on our nation by radical Muslims, where 3,000 innocent people lost their lives in the name of Allah.  Because of this attack, America will never be the same.  Where we once thought ourselves immune from terror, we know realize it may soon be a […]

Search My Heart, O God!

How do you fight against the inevitable?  The bible clearly states that in the final days the anti-christ will rise to power and unite the world in its hatred toward God, choosing to worship a false god.  It seems most, if not all nations will join him in this unholy venture. Growing up before I […]
