Are We Prepared for Real Persecution in America?

Our Christian brothers and sisters around the world are facing increased persecution for their faith in Jesus Christ. But we here in America face limited discrimination and a soft persecution at worst. Are we spiritually prepared for the coming days when we are truly hated for the name sake of Jesus Christ? Is our professed Christian walk even worthy of hatred and persecution of the world? Or does our life blend in too closely with the lives of unbelievers? Don Veinot joins the program today.

This morning we look at recent studies showing increased hatred of Jesus Christ and His followers, and how Christians in America are being influenced more and more by secular humanist thought.

Church: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

In a world increasingly hostile to God and His Word, the importance of belonging to a strong, biblical church has never been greater. Sadly, an increasing number of churches seem to be looking for ways to compromise with secular culture in the hopes of growing their church. Many crucial, biblical issues are not being addressed for fear members might be offended and leave the church. But there are still many solid Christian churches out there who are staying true to God’s Word and refusing to give in to political correctness or conform to the world.

In our consumer driven mindset these days, we want what we want, when we want it. But has this mindset caused some to leave churches for the wrong reason? Is it all about us being fed and a church meeting our needs? What about serving the body of Christ? And how do we know when it might be time to find a new church, and what does a solid church look like?

Joining us today for an in depth look at the importance of strong Christian teachings and fellowship in the church is Pastor Randy White.

Follow the Money

When dealing with governments or political/social movements, ‘follow the money’ is usually sound advice when you want to know the real agenda. We consistently hear the latest scares about how the earth is heating to catastrophic levels, threatening humanity. This coming from the same people who warned us thirty years ago that we risked heading into a new “ice age” that would threaten to destroy us.

Many people believe the real issue is radical wealth redistribution leading to totalitarian world government or even population control. As we approach Earth Day this Saturday and the ant-scientific ‘March for Science,’ expect to hear grim warnings of where we are headed over CO2 emissions once again. Joining us to cut through the fog is Dr. Cal Beissner of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation.

We also look at the National Day of Prayer events that will be held on May 4 once again this year. While Christians gathering for prayer is a good thing, have some of them become nothing more than multi-faith events promoting Universalism? We’ll discuss that with the coordinators of our Green Bay area National Day of Prayer in our second segment this morning.

Clever, Dangerous Deception

In my latest book The Death of Christian Thought, I discuss how it is not the blatant lies that are most dangerous, but rather the clever deceptions of Satan and false teachers that are our greatest threat. Deception masked as truth is subtle, but very dangerous, slowly leading many away from the truth of God’s Word.

This morning we begin a discussion on an article by Tim Challies titled “7 False Teachers in the Church Today” that equips us to discern between truth and clever deception.

We also check in with Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute to discuss the many court cases and threats involving our religious freedom in America, especially the transgender movement.

Do Our Actions Betray Our Words?

It is much easier to say we believe something than it is to live it sometimes. We all say we trust God, or love our spouses, but do our actions continually support our verbal claims? According to the Bible, faith in Jesus Christ goes beyond mental assent; it is an unshakable belief of the mind and the heart: a complete, unwavering commitment to Him as our Lord and Savior.

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us this morning to discuss the importance of living what we claim to believe.

Is ‘Transgenderism’ Here to Stay?

Facebook now recognizes 71 different genders options that members can self-identify with. The Federal Government has expanded its list to more than 50. And, according to some, transgenderism has almost become a badge of pride and honor among youth desperately seeking approval from their peers.

We know God created human beings male or female, and in His image. But we also know that the Word of God has increasingly been marginalized and dismissed as antiquated in our society.

This morning we look at the increased pressure to expand “gender” and the growing punishment of those who will not go along with the agenda. Matt Walsh joins us for an interesting, thought-provoking discussion.

That’s a Great Question

We receive hundreds of emails and calls every month from listeners asking about certain topics that we might not have covered on air. This morning we share and discuss as many as we can in our “Great Question” segment.

In the first segment, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to discuss the tension between the U.S., Russia, China and North Korea and how it might affect markets and the world economy.

Is Scientology Compatible with Christianity?

Why are people seduced by cults? What would make an intelligent person fall into deception or be drawn into anti-biblical teachings? Something that sounds good on the surface perhaps, but is not what it appears to be when you do a little digging. Today we will discuss the Church of Scientology with an expert, James Walker of Watchman.org and touch on some basics.

The End Game in Syria and Israel

Many are wondering what the end game of leaders like President Trump and Russian President Putin might be in Syria and the Middle East. The U.S. attack on the air force base that Syrian President Assad used to attack his people with chemical weapons has the world on edge, and as the U.S. Secretary of State prepares to meet with Russian leaders today, an anxious world looks on hoping for a positive outcome that will avoid an escalation of war.

Hear what Gary Kay has to say on today’s program.

World Religions and the Challenge of Religious Freedom

Freedom is not an easy concept, particularly when it comes to freedom of religious beliefs and conscience. While our nation was clearly established on Judeo-Christian principles from the Bible, our Founding Fathers were also very clear that government should never enforce a national religion upon its citizens. But at what cost do we allow any religion in the U.S.?

This morning we cover a controversy out of Deleware, where a local Muslim Imam opened a government meeting with a quote from the Quran–the very book that calls for Muslim domination of the world and persecution of anyone who opposes Islam.

In our first segment we check in with Roger Patterson the general Editor for an intriguing and informative new book World Religions and Cults – Volume 3.
