America’s Biggest Problem: Seeker-Friendly Churches

This morning we discuss an article by Pastor Bryan Fischer who points the finger squarely at the professing Christian Church in America for our nation’s decline in morality and biblical values. The Christian Church is supposed to be the moral and spiritual conscience of our nation, challenging government and people when they stray from God. Instead, Fischer thinks it has become the problem rather than the solution. We also check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action to discuss the spiritual and political climate in Madison regarding life, marriage, and religious freedom issues. From today’s interview with Julaine: “Law is always downstream of culture.”

Cameron Buettel: Discernment, Biblical Context, and Coronavirus Concerns

A.W. Tozer stated, “Worship is no longer worship when it reflects the culture around us more than the Christ within us.” What is happening in too many American churches is we have become seeker-sensitive, conformed to the world, and watered-down not only the hard truths of Scripture but the gospel itself. The whole country suffers when the church is weak and less effective.

On today’s podcast we discuss Christian maturity and church discernment issues.

Jude: Contend for the Faith, Expose False Teachers

The book of Jude is yet another warning for today’s Christian church. We must know the truth and learn from biblical hjistory! Deceivers and false teachers have infiltrated the ranks and are leading many astray.

Early church leaders were concerned about false teachings and rightly so. There’s nothing new under the sun as today, many have accepted unbiblical ideas or teachings because on the surface they might sound good. Few understand the underlying and ongoing war against the Truth.

Comments and Questions Every Friday

Every week we receive so many great comments and questions from listeners to Stand Up for the Truth. We’ll get to as many as we can today!

Question of the week: What are your thoughts on the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) having Nancy Pelosi speak to Christian college leaders recently?

A few responses: “one of the many reasons I no longer call myself Evangelical,” “What could she even remotely bring of value to a discussion?” “That’s like having an atheist preach from the pulpit,” and “I think the NAE needs to share the gospel with Nancy Pelosi and the importance of repentance and obeying God’s Word.”

We also share a stirring testimony from a Christian woman that had an abortion years ago and kept it to herself. Now after all this time she has received the forgiveness and healing of Jesus, and has been encouraging the body of Christ to stop being silent on this pivotal issue.

We also discuss:

Home churches: when is it time to consider leaving your seeker-sensitive or unbibilcal church?
What has happened to rational, respectful debate and dialogue?
Pastors that rarely ever preach on the Old Testament
What does it mean to enter into the rest of God, Hebrews 4?

Growing Moral Confusion in America

Mike and David continue to look at the growing spiritual and moral insanity taking over America and the influence it is having on American Christianity. The Bible warns us that in the final days good would be seen as evil and evil seen as good. We see this unfolding in our nation as the radical Left pushes an unbiblical worldview and establishes a new standard for supposed “morality” that completely contradicts the Word of God. And a growing number of churches embrace this unbiblical worldview in order to be seen as seeker friendly and accepting, even to the point that the church no longer has any influence on a decaying society.

Elijah Abraham is a former Muslim, now a committed born-again believer in Jesus Christ. He travels around the world teaching in churches in heavily Muslim nations equipping believers to reach people with the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Elijah talks about the moral decay in our nation contrasting how churches in areas of intense persecution approach church compared to America.
