The Illusion of Radical Liberalism

One of the most sinister things a person can do is to brainwash someone into thinking they are in a crisis and that the only way to get out of it is to buy what they are selling, when in reality what they are “selling” actually brings the crisis to fruition. That is exactly the hoax being perpetuated on America and the Christian church by radicals and progressives. Create a crisis and then offer a solution that actually brings the crisis about. John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio really understands the liberal mindset and joins us to talk about this hoax.

New Leadership Is On The Way

Some Christians are concerned about the new leadership poised to take power in Washington, D.C. as a result of this week’s elections. There is legitimate concern that this new leadership will be unfriendly toward Christians and the biblical values we are called to live by each day. The news media continues to debate if this was a “blue wave” or simply a temporary correction to the balance of power, but one thing we know for sure: There is a powerful “wave” ascending to leadership in our nation—today’s college students are the future leaders of our nation and what they are learning about God and Christianity does not bode well for our nation. But some people called by God are interceding and influencing tomorrow’s leaders in a positive way.

Jane Pantig is Co-Chapter Director at the University of California System for Ratio Christi Ministries. Jane joins us this morning to share some of the crucial questions today’s students are asking and the importance of giving them truthful, biblical answers to their questions.

Clearing Up Confusion About Voting and Citizenship

Yes, it’s time to vote, again. Too many Christians in the United States are still confused about things that God’s Word is crystal clear about. It starts with the God of creation and His eternal existence. Marriage is between a man and a woman, life begins when God knits it in a mother’s womb, and there are only two genders, male or female.

God is a God of order while Satan is a master of chaos and confusion. The world we live in, which serves Satan, will try to confuse us on simple issues. It redefines words like love, tolerance and grace to confuse us and take our eyes off God. Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us this morning to help us clear up the confusion the enemy uses to discourage people. We start off talking about Christians, government and voting.

We The People Elect Our Leaders

The Apostle Paul makes it clear that we are to honor and obey governmental authorities in our lives, as long as their orders do not contradict what the Bible teaches. In America we are blessed because we get to choose our leaders, the “Caesars” we are to submit to. Tomorrow (Tuesday) Americans will elect our government leaders for the next two years, and their motives for voting will be worldly. But as Christians, we are held to a higher standard. We should be electing leaders whose values and beliefs most align with God’s Word on moral and spiritual issues like abortion, marriage, family, freedom, sexuality and gender.

Our religious freedoms to openly profess and share our convictions continue to be on the line depending the outcome of this election. Radical Progressives have made it clear that Christians are to be seen but not heard. In our final segments we look at news stories that show just how intense the pressure is becoming on Christians to withdraw from the public arena. But first we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss the choices Christians face in this election.

If Technology Becomes Our Master

The world is changing rapidly and the capabilities of technology are increasing at an alarming rate. Technological devices that serve us today could one day be used to monitor and control us.

Patrick Wood of Technocracy News joins Mike and David to look at some of the frightening scenarios in the coming years. Once Artificial Intelligence is “let out of the bottle” can anything stop it from being used to enslave us?

In our final segments, we look at some sad and shocking stories including how professing Christians continue to fall for theologies and beliefs that the Bible warns us about. This is not a joke, but we’ll discuss concerns about a self-proclaimed “Christian” Witch, and in another story, a modern-day “Prophet” of the Most High God.

Can a True Believer Lose His Salvation?

Can a true believer lose their salvation? This question has been debated for nearly 2,000 years and remains an issue that even theologians disagree on. It is an important discussion to have, because your beliefs can have a big impact on how you choose to live as a Christian.

Those who believe you can lose your salvation will point to the dangers of professing Christians becoming lazy in their faith or those who continue to sin without any perceived consequence since they believe in they cannot lose their salvation. What about the process of sanctification, how does that fit in this conversation? Those who believe in eternal security might look at others and think they are trying to be saved by their good works.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to see what the Bible says about the subject as well as how we have assurance of eternal life in Christ.

Former Atheist on Need for Christian Maturity, Apologetics

First time guest, Vas Avramidis, Ratio Christi chapter director at Rutgers University, joins us today. Being a former atheist, Vos quickly learned at college that most Christian students could not explain why they believed what they believe. He tried Buddhism, became a Wiccan, and even explored Hare Krishna before coming to faith in Jesus Christ.

He then realized how important and vital it was for Christians to not only share the gospel, but to disciple and prepare young people for the hostility toward Christianity on most college campuses. We also discuss a lack of maturity overall in the church today which goes right along with the high degree of biblical illiteracy. We’ll talk solutions.

Order vs. Chaos

God is a god of order. Satan is a master of chaos and the prince of this world. Christians are called to be light and salt to the world. How do we as disciples of Jesus Christ navigate this life in an orderly, biblical fashion when the world thrives on chaos and confusion? Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss this challenging dilemma.

Dismissing Doctrine, Islam, Witchcraft

Last week, some media outlets covered a story of a group of Witches gathering to cast a curse on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Their curse called for him to suffer physically and emotionally and lead to his eventual death. The secular outlets that covered it mostly laughed it off as foolishness. But to dismiss witches casting spells may be foolish and ignorant as well. Should these curses be dismissed or taken seriously?

Elijah Abraham has traveled to dozens of countries sharing the gospel with Muslims, and equipping Christian pastors and leaders to share the gospel in their nations. Some of these nations are ones where witch doctors and spiritual shamans cast similar spells. Abraham also equips Christians in nations where going public with your Christian faith might be met with violent opposition. He joins us to share his ministry experiences, and to discuss the effectiveness and maturity of professing Christian Churches in our own nation as we continue to see compromise with the world.

The Growing Complexity of Freedom of Speech

The constitutionally protected right of freedom of speech and expression used to be a pretty straight forward issue. But with the advent of social media, corporate “branding”, and a society that is easily offended it has become a much more complex issue.

This morning we look at a couple stories that point out the new reality facing us in a society that claims to value freedom of speech but is becoming increasingly intolerant of any view that opposes a humanistic, God-hating agenda.

In our first segment Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss the challenges we as believers face in sharing the gospel with people currently blinded to the truth about God. Jay will discuss a common question we hear from people who doubt God’s existence: “If God created the universe, who crated God?”

A Shift in Educational Priorities

The traditional purpose of education was to give children the basic skills they would need in life to grow into productive members of society, and able to earn a living. But we have seen a slow but dramatic shift in what education looks like over the past few decades. To some the focus now seems to be a sort of political indoctrination of our children, touting globalism and progressive ideals at the expense of teaching our children how to critically think and make their own decisions. This shift in priorities presents huge challenges for the future of our nation. When students only learn one side of an important argument how will they be equipped to deal with problems and opportunities that arise in a rational way? Dr. Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project Media and the educational, informative Dr. Duke Show, join us to discuss these challenges.

Growing Confusion, Fear and Violence

While God is a God of order, Satan is a master of deception, confusion and chaos. As our world continues to spin into confusion, it is apparent who is calling the shots: The accuser of the brethren, father of lies, and enemy of God. As Christians we should be able to see through the deception and fog, but too many believers seem to be spending less time in God’s Word and more time with things of this world. As a result, our vision becomes blurred to the point we cannot perceive and discern deception from truth. One interesting phenomenon we are witnessing is a self-proclaimed (formerly) “Christian Nation” having more people abandon biblical Christianity while in restricted and Muslim dominated nations, the gospel is being proclaimed and people are coming to saving faith in Jesus Christ. Elijah Abraham of Living Oasis Ministries is a former Muslim and now a passionate born-again believer who travels the world equipping Christians and church leaders to share the gospel in the Muslim world. He joins us to discuss what he is witnessing in both American churches and those in heavily Muslim nations.

One World Religion and Liberal ‘Christian’ Contradictions

Today’s guest is Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach. He recently attended the Parliament of World religions and gives us an update including a bit of history on this unbiblical movement. The meeting in Toronto, Canada included a United Nations workshop espousing the view that our salvation (and the salvation of the earth) depends on man – on our ability to shed exclusion and embrace our “common oneness.”

“This is an event which few Evengelicals pay attention to and will sneak up on them in the future, especially with their association to the UN.” Don Veinot

Listener Comments & Questions Every Friday

Here are some of the topics and questions discussed today:

If we are no longer under that law, why do Christians teach that some parts of the law still apply while other parts do not apply?
What was Paul saying in Romans 14:23 when it states, “whatever is not from faith is sin?”
There are many aspects to taking one’s own life, but what is the right way to view suicide?
As a Californian, we are very concerned about the direction of our state and country. With the spread of apostasy we all need to be watchmen on the walls even more today.
Advice for Christian parents of a teenager that refuses to go to church.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs Christ and she should also step down. We are to pray for our enemies and for unbelievers, but at what point do we move on and wipe the dust off our sandals?
As Christians in the godless nation of Canada, we appreciate your ministry. It seems America is about 10 years behind us as we continue down the path of secularism.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s gracious concession speech and Scripture he shared should remind us of God’s sovereignty and the fact our purpose as Christians doesn’t change regardless of change in occupation.
Since our nation abandoned God’s principles, I am actually glad our nation has slid into socialism because it is helping us see who are the true and faithful Christians and churches, and which ones are selling out to man.
