Pastor Carl Gallups

We're joined by Pastor Carl Gallups today as we try to look at today's news from a biblical perspective, and try to see how all that is happening around us fits into God's plan for the world. His latest book is Gods of Ground Zero.

Pastor Carl Gallups joins Mike and David to discuss an article from the Christian Post speculating on what healthy American Churches will look like ten years from now. We start our discussion on this topic assuming we will not yet face open persecution for our Christian beliefs ten years from now.  What kind of changes will we see in strong Christian churches in America?

We also discuss how the country has changed over the past 40 years.  In 1980, after the U.S. Men’s Olympic Hockey team upset the powerful Russians, goalie Jim Craig draped himself in the American flag and cried as he sang our national anthem.  This month the Megan Rapinoe-led team cursed President Trump, disrespected the flag, and made sure a Christian player was kicked off the team because she did not agree to wear an LGBT ‘Gay Pride’ jersey.

Lastly, we look at the growing tensions and alliances in the Middle East as nations start to come together against Israel, just as the Word of God warns us.  Could war break out any day?
