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 […]

Are You Firm in Your Faith?

Isaiah 7:9 contains a very chilling word from God that seems so appropriate to the times we live in today:  “If you do not stand firm in your faith, you will not stand at all.”  A very strong warning from God that we need to take to heart these days. The Emergent church movement is […]

Are You a Watchman–Or Playing It Safe?

As one looks at all that is going on in the world today, the one thing you can see for certain is that lines are being drawn in the sand on several fronts.  Politically, emotions and anger are running high as both parties blame each other for the financial crisis we face.  Both parties seem […]

Unity Around What?

Paul’s letters to the Corinthians cover a myriad of subjects.  But an overriding message is for Christians not to quarrel with one another over relatively unimportant issues–but he also encouraged them to not tolerate false teachings and false teachers within the church. We tackle a lot of difficult issues on Stand Up For the Truth.  […]

What Is A "Christian Universalist?"

I found this over at Sola Sisters, and found it to be a great resource on New Age spirituality. Be sure to check out the Sola Sisters blog and Facebook page. It used to be that Universalists behaved and stayed in the New Age where they belonged.  But sadly, those days are over.  And it […]

Watchman or Pharisee?

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 […]

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 […]

What Is Christian Universalism?

The Christian Universalist Association considers a straightforward belief in Scripture as biblical Truth to be misguided and counterproductive. “If a religious organization is to exist at all, it should stand for something about important questions of life, faith, God, and the world beyond — and it should present its real current beliefs in an honest […]

Are You On the Narrow Path?

In Matthew 24, Jesus warns us of what will happen in the end times.  In verse 24 Jesus states: “For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect, if that were possible.”  Jesus goes on to tell us to remain vigilant and prepared for His […]

As we discussed on Stand Up for the Truth this morning, there is a growing movement within progressive Christian circles promoting “Chrislam”, a blending of Christianity and Islam.  It is important for Believers to learn for themselves just what the Koran does and does not say about Jesus.  This is important because promoters of Chrislam […]

Here Comes the "Chrislam" Train

Monday, we will begin our discussion on an emerging new religion being promoted by the social justice and emergent church movements.  It is an attempt to legitimize Islam and make it “compatible” with Christianity.  This is a dangerous false teaching that sadly is very appealing to young people these days.  It is a ‘religion” that […]

President Obama attended church in Hawaii Sunday, continuing a trend of public expressions of his Christian faith in the past three months, argues Carol E. Lee in Politico. Obama has publicly mentioned his “Christian faith” more times in the past three months than he has over the past year. He has more frequently cited passages […]

Divine Aid for Climate Change

Who says that we live in a secular age? I’ll have you know that a recent U.N. climate change conference began with a prayer that the delegates would receive divine inspiration as they went about saving the planet. Of course, the deity being prayed to was not the God and Father of our Lord Jesus […]
