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…Read More

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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
A government that can tell a pastor what he can and cannot say during counseling is a government that can tell a pastor what parts of the Bible are off-limits. The groundwork is being laid for further restrictions – not only on Christian speech, but also on parental rights.Read More
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.Read More
In a little more than six weeks Americans will elect a new President to lead our nation for the next four years. One thing we do know is that elections have consequences. Robert Meyer of Renew America has written a thought provoking commentary on ways Christians should view this or any election and he joins us to share his thoughts. Also, Tony Campolo has five reasons why he does not consider himself an “Evangelical Christian.”Read More
It always intrigues me when two people can look at the same set of facts and come away with different conclusions. These differing conclusions are of course influenced by our perception of the world and what we have been taught–correctly or erroneously.
As Christians, we see archaeological and scientific discoveries happening regularly that confirm the truth of the Bible. Yet those who stubbornly reject God refuse to see the truth because of ignorance, pride, or a hard heart. The Bible is more than just a religious book–it is an historical book that gives us a look at the creation of the world, along with its future.
Joining us this morning to discuss how credible science is confirming the truth of the Scriptures is Jay Seegert of The Creation Education Center.Read More
The liberal, utopian mindset is an interesting thing. No matter the facts that might get in the way of their arguments, they charge forward convinced that they are the enlightened geniuses who have everything figured out. If for some reason stupid, backwards thinking conservatives would just get with the program and blindly follow them; then we could unite, solve the world’s problems and achieve the utopian dream.
The basis of this is not necessarily liberalism; it is the belief in humanism: man’s nature is good and if we just collectively become one, we can solve any problem and accomplish anything. (Does the Tower of Babel ring a bell?) Sadly, this same humanism is actually infecting the professing Christian Church–but we’ll discuss that another day.
A cornerstone of the progressive movement toward a one world government is the alarmism and desperation we hear from the Left over climate change. Al Gore and others have made millions stirring up panic by claiming we are on the verge of world wide catastrophe if we don’t stop using fossil fuels as energy. But is their theory based on scientific fact? Or is it just a scare tactic meant to manipulate and control people – and make them big money?
This morning we are joined by Dr. Roy Spencer who was a Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA. His latest book is titled An Inconvenient Deception: how Al Gore Distorts Climate Science and Energy Policy. Dr. Spencer is a preeminent expert on the field of Climate Science and he joins us to separate fact from fiction and manipulation over the topic of climate change.Read More
We have reached a time in America where speaking the truth, no matter how gently done, is called hateful. If you speak out against the facts in the Quran, you hate Muslims. Speak about God’s definition of marriage, and you hate homosexuals. Share what the Bible says about gender being assigned at birth and permanent – even though secular science confirms this truth – and you hate transgenders. Speak up and defend life, and you hate women.
There is big money and power in screaming “hate speech” every time the progressive agenda is challenged or the Bible is referenced out loud. Today, we look at a thought provoking commentary on how the business of hate is consuming our nation.
In our first segment, we check in with Pastor Randy White and continue our discussion on how the Old Testament of the Bible is increasingly overlooked or discarded, even by many professing Christians. Is our growing ignorance of God’s wisdom and proclamations of the Old Testament causing problems in our spiritual growth as Christians and effectiveness as a church?Read More
Proverbs 9:10 states: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” But what exactly does the Bible mean when it says we are to fear God? Does it mean that even as His adopted children we expect Him to punish us every time we disobey Him? Or that the moment we disobey Him, He will rescind His promise to those who confess, repent and place our complete faith and trust in Jesus Christ?
Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss what a healthy and accurate fear of God looks like, and why “the fear of the Lord” is seen as an antiquated belief even among professing Christians.Read More
The first century Christian Church was well aware of what God wanted them to do and why they were still in this world. They knew for a fact Jesus was alive and they believed the return of Christ was imminent. They also knew it was their responsibility to share the gospel with as many people as possible in the hope they would repent and accept forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ. And while many were wrong about the timing of His return, their passion for the gospel led many into the eternal Kingdom of Heaven.
Here’s a heart check for us: how is our level of passion and commitment for the gospel? Do we understand the true purpose God has us in this world? Or is it more about finding God’s “special purpose” for our lives these days? If we truly believe what the Bible teaches, that people who do not surrender to God and submit themselves to the lordship of Jesus Christ will spend eternity separated from Him in hell, then why are we so timid about sharing the good news with our family, friends and neighbors?
Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss why Christians seem afraid or are hesitant to share the Gospel. We also look at #GreenBayPacker’s quarterback, #AaronRodger’s broken collarbone from a spiritual perspective, knowing God allows things to happen in our lives to bring us back to Him.Read More
In the book of Amos (8:11) God gives us this chilling warning: “Behold the days are coming when I will send a famine on the land; not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord.”
Now let’s take a moment to connect some dots: Jesus said the Word of God is the eternal bread that man must live on; and if a famine of hearing His Word is descending upon us than many will be doomed because of their rejection of the truth of God. As we see a growth in professing Christians identifying “truth” by what they feel or what the world tells us it is, is this the beginning of that famine Amos spoke of?
We also check in with author and Pastor Carl Gallups to discuss his newly released book “Gods and Thrones.” Are we truly living in the most prophetic times since Jesus Christ walked the earth? And if so are we ignoring crucially important signs that point to the return of our Lord and Savior?Read More
