Study on ‘Discipline of the Mind and Devotion’

It takes time, commitment, and discipline to train our flesh and mature in Christ, and one of the most important disciplines is investing in God’s Word. Growth in personal holiness is determined by our progress in self-discipline.

Victory always comes at a price. The effective Christian life demands we exercise self-discipline in areas like food, drink, sleep, our speech, family priorities, work, leisure, time management, and money. We must exercise self-control and restrict our liberties in whatever would hinder us from winning the prize.

The Great Tribulation & Return of Christ: Matthew 24

Three times in this sermon alone, Jesus mentions false teachers will deceive “many.” Also, the utter destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem was a prophecy, not a “sign,” it was a judgment of God on the Jewish people for rejecting the Messiah. Persecution often reveals traitors within the Church as well as enemies outside, and the test of any age is endurance. Those who endure to the end will be saved and the gospel must first be preached as a witness to the nations, then comes the end.

The Art of Christian Apologetics

Knowing what the Bible teaches is one thing. Explaining it to others is another. We need to be reminded that the gospel is the power of God unto salvation.  We can over-complicate it, but it is important to be prepared to share the basics or the essentials of the faith, as well as being ready to give an answer someone may ask about our hope in Christ.

This is why biblical apologetics is crucial in the times in which we live. Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins Mike and David to share what he has learned in his years of being an apologist and evangelist.

Gathering Storms of War in the Middle East

Who Wants to be God?

The race is on, just as the Bible foretold.  Various individuals, groups and organizations are speeding ahead trying to convince people that the God of the Bible either doesn’t truly exist, or that He would want us to come together and connect the “Christ consciousness” in each of us so that human beings can create utopia on earth. Today we take a closer look at the “oneness” movement, the age of re-enchantment, earth worship, and the openness to practically anything except biblical Christianity.

Carl Teichrib, who has studied the New Age and the various movements and organizations promoting spiritual unity and “oneness” joins Mike and David to discuss ecumenism, the World Council of Churches, Catholicism and Islam, the UN, Burning Man, and the World Parlament of Religions. Carl also provides insights from his extensive research contained in his latest book Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-Enchantment.
