Jesus warned us that in the last days, the gospel would be rejected and His followers would be hated. Though unreported by secular media, we are seeing staggering increases in the persecution of Christians and the destruction of Christian Churches worldwide. This morning Mike and David discuss the real story behind the headlines of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris, and an internationally known Christian Rugby player threatened because of his Christian beliefs.And on this Holy Week leading up to our celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the gospel is under attack around the world. Taking a cue from Europe, many American Christians are looking to please the world and compromising the truth of Scripture all around us. Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to take a look at what we so often take for granted: what Jesus accomplished almost 2,000 years ago through the cross and the empty tomb.Read More
Where’s our common sense? Doesn’t this attract pedophiles, child molesters and rapists? Why are so many adults just going along with all this? Evil is being called good.
Some of us saw this coming years ago, but how did we get to the point of openly sexualizing innocent children – and promoting it as acceptable? Things that were once unthinkable have become mainstream.Read More

Are the walls of religious freedom in America crumbling just like Canada and Europe?
The battle with occasional sin in the life of true believers
Maslow & Rogers effect on the country regarding psychology and self-actualization (“full hearts and empty heads”) paving the way for the New Age as well as the “cult of liberalism.”
More thoughts on the debate over Supreme Court Justice nomination Brett Kavanaugh
What are the essentials of the Christian faith and why don’t all believers agree on?
Apostasy within many churches and denominations – just like Apostle Paul warned about
Where do believers literally go after we die and where does the Catholic idea of purgatory come from?
Was Jesus “seeker-friendly” in the modern interpretation of the word?
God seems to have turned America over to a reprobate mind; is there any hope for repentance?
The first transgender in a Miss Universe competition – how far will he go?
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.Read More
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.Read More
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
We live in the growing era of triggering, snowflakes and safe spaces. Most young people are being indoctrinated into the belief that their opinion or worldview is the only valid one and anyone who dares question them is a threat. It all goes back to Adam, who when confronted by God about his sin blamed Eve and God Himself for his poor choice.
In our final segment this morning we look at an interesting perspective by David Hoffman at the Christian Post, claiming that all the confusion in society and the church is perhaps God’s way of beginning to separate the wheat from the chaff spoken of in Matthew 3:12 by John the Baptist.
Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to look at what the Bible says about personal responsibility and how taking responsibility for our own beliefs and actions is healthy for us as Christians.Read More
Today we visit with Pastor Mike Abendroth and discuss the blood of Christ and the redeeming gospel. We touch on the meaning of Jesus Christ as the only Mediator between God and man. We touch on the abuse of grace by some as well as the Book of Hebrews, the sacrificial system, and Sabbath rest.Read More
The human mind, created beautifully by God but corrupted by sin, is subject to believing lies are truth if the lie is reinforced often enough. Today’s generation of young people have been continuously lied to by Hollywood, the media, and a public education system that denies the glory of God. Too many are being indoctrinated into a life of futility and hopelessness because they are looking for meaning and security everywhere except God and His Word.Tyler Geffeny of Ratio Christi Ministries speaks at conferences and churches worldwide challenging and equipping Christians to become better biblical apologists to reach young people with the hope of Jesus Christ in a world that leads many to pursue self gratification. Tyler joins Mike and David to discuss current trends and the agendas the church is up against, especially in the American university system.Read More
