Meaningful Christian Living & Evangelism

Rick Warren’s “The Purpose Driven Life” was a best seller that got many Christians searching for God’s “purpose” for their lives. Our guest this morning says searching for our “purpose” is a wild goose chase because once you think you’ve found it the world will change its focus and you’ll end up like those dogs we see in videos chasing their tails while getting nowhere fast and becoming dizzy and frustrated. He says rather Christians should focus on the meaning of our lives–something by the way clearly defined in God’s Word.

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to discuss the difference between purpose and meaning, along with the importance of using Biblical Exposition in evangelism.

We’ll also discuss an intriguing study about how “Generation Z” is the least Christian generation in our nation’s history–and why one Christian researcher thinks that is actually a good thing.

Is the Middle East About to Erupt?

Here in our nation we have been focused on tragic school shootings and the continuing probe into potential “collusion” with Russia by the Trump Administration. Occasionally we turn an eye to the growing threat of a nuclear North Korea, but we hear little about rapidly changing and threatening events in the Middle East.

The Islamic world is fighting a civil war between Sunni and Shiite; Iran is threatening to attack neighboring Sunni nations and testing Israeli defenses; and Syria has been decimated with civil war, killing tens of thousands. And Turkey, once an ally of Israel, has become a radical Muslim nation and a true wild card in all this turmoil.

This morning Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now on-fire born-again believer in Jesus Christ, joins us for his perspective on the Middle East and the growing threat of Islamic terrorism here in the United States.

The Perfect Timing of Christ the King

Jesus stepped down from the throne of God and set aside His crown of gold to temporarily wear a crown of thorns. The devil knew the promised Messiah would come—and that He would come from the Jewish people. So he tried to stop that from taking place. Remember King Herod tried killing all male babies under two years old (Matt. 2:16) in the vicinity of Bethlehem after hearing from the wise men where the prophesied child was to be born? So as we look deeper into the Christmas story, we realize that it doesn’t begin in Matthew or Luke. God had a masterful plan from the beginning…

Tis the Season… for Atheists to Seek Converts

It seems there is nothing Atheists detest more than the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. These promoters of “tolerance” literally lose their minds when people dare proclaim their belief and faith in the Son of God becoming human to bear the sins of man upon Himself.

Today we are joined by Dr. Alex McFarland to look at the atheist mindset and see why they seem so hypocritical when it comes to free speech and tolerance, trying to deny Christians the right to express our faith as we see best.

We will address the motive for anti-Christmas atheist billboards as well as the reasons behind the dwindling numbers of Bibles in hotel rooms today compared with a decade ago. There’s also an important court case in Indiana that might affect the rights of Christian Counselors, non-profits and churches to help people struggling with same-sex attraction.

Ignoring the Demonic in Entertainment and Politics

Seeds planted by the enemy and his followers countless decades ago are now being harvested in American culture and worldwide – and they have produced unimaginable debauchery and destruction. The problem is, too many Christians have chosen to look the other way as immorality spreads like an infectious disease. Pastor Joe Schimmel gives a strong warning to the church.

Wisconsin Again: Election Recounts, Bible Studies, and Media Bias

It’s interesting how Wisconsin keeps coming up in the battles for political power. Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council shares her thoughts on the matter and the process of this voter recount. What are the possibilities involving the numbers of votes in WI, MI, and PA, and how could this affect the presidential election? What do Democrats stand to gain?

Aside from corruption or fraudulent practices, it’s a long shot at best to somehow find enough votes or mistakes that would actually swing the results in favor of Hillary Clinton. Talk about drama.

Entitlement vs Responsibility

A growing number of people want the good things of life without the hard work and responsibilities. People are being duped by the idea of free stuff including college tuition, healthcare, jobs, retirement benefits, all without any of the responsibility.

Christians must be discerning and not fall for the entitlement traps all around us. Today’s guest is Dave Wager from Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute.

Reformation, Repentance, and Returning to Faith in Christ Alone

Today, we catch up with Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio. He recently returned from Germany and is hosting a trip there next year on the 500th anniversary of Martin Luter’s 95 Theses, a bold move which led to what we now understand as the Reformation of the Catholic Church.

Later in the program, Eric Kampman, President of Midpoint Trade Books, joins Mike and Dave. Eric has taught courses on book publishing at Harvard, Columbia, and New York University. He also speaks at conferences and for publishers and writers. His new devotional book is called Getting to Know Jesus.

Twisting Tolerance, Pulpit Freedom, and Political Correctness

The Left uses the Johnson Amendment to bully Christian pastors and groups with threats of losing their nonprofit status should they dare talk about the Bible as it relates to cultural, political, fiscal, and social issues, which all fall under the category of moral issues. We have grown up with a generation of churchgoers that believe it is illegal for their pastor to address candidates and elections in light of Scripture or church doctrine when there is no valid justification for believing that.

Reasons for Hope, Answers About Our Faith

1 Peter 3:15 tells us to always be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for hope. These days, in a world spinning into disarray, people need all the hope they can get.

Real hope starts and ends by knowing who God is and His plan for this fallen world. But these days public institutions are peddling a false narrative about God and creation. Unless we can point them to the truth, people will remain lost and without help.

Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries joins us this morning to discuss Creationism and how to point people to the truth of God in His Word.

Don’t You Dare Bring God into This!

As secular culture turns more hostile toward God and His Word every day, secular humanists are doing all they can to make certain God’s perfect truth is no longer a part of helping people trapped in sin. Instead, the left is encouraging people to not only agree with them, but to insist that others accept their sin as righteous. Isaiah 5:20 warns us about calling evil good.

The city of Milwaukee recently passed an ordinance that bans so-called “conversion therapy” for minors struggling with homosexuality or gender issues, but many pastors in the community are uniting to fight the proposed ordinance. We also discuss a California Supreme Court decision that actually reverses a CA law that approved assisted suicide, and the Supreme Court decision regarding sports betting (gambling) leaving it up to each state whether or not to legalize betting on sports.

Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action is in studio today to discuss these issues along with why so many people are ignorant or uninformed about the Christian faith and what the Bible actually teaches.

Can’t We All Just Coexist in Peace?

In our final segment, we look at the rioting by Hamas against Israel – as well as the response of the IDF – as the Trump administration officially recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city and location of the U.S. embassy. We’ll look at the facts versus how the news is being reported in the mainstream media. Is Hamas manipulating the West?

First, we catch up with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project to discuss the following:

How do we start a conversation with friends or neighbors that have a COEXIST bumper sticker on their car? Don’t start by telling them to “get that stupid Coexist sticker off your car!”

Does the Bible really say Christians should not judge others?

What are your plans for the summer and whatever happened to reading books? Also, what worthwhile projects can you and your family undertake that will glorify God and help you grow as Christians?

Courageously Standing With Israel

Today Israel marks the seventieth anniversary of its rebirth as a nation, a biblical prophecy from thousands of years ago fulfilled in 1948. The United States is marking the anniversary by officially moving its embassy to Jerusalem, the long-standing capital of Israel, against opposition from almost the entire world.

Many believe this will incite Muslim nations to attack Israel with the greatest severity since the 1973 war, and that it could quickly spread to a major regional or even world war. Iran’s growing influence, the rise of Turkey as a radical Muslim power, and the strong presence of Russia in the Middle East all point to a potentially serious conflict.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and host of Understanding the Times Radio joins us this morning to discuss this significant anniversary in Israel’s history and discuss what might lie ahead.

In our final segment we talk with Wisconsin State Representative Andre Jacque and ask if the groundbreaking pro-life legislation recently signed into law in Iowa could also happen here in Wisconsin.
