While deadly shootings and gang violence continue on the streets of Chicago every weekend, two horrendous mass shootings took place in Ohio and Texas. One man was apparently a radical right-winger and the other a Satanist, Democrat, and radical left-winger. Americans and the media seek answers, but continue to refuse to accept the plain truth: increased evil and lawlessness because the truth of God is being ignored and rejected.Read More

Pastor Carl Gallups joins Mike and David to discuss an article from the Christian Post speculating on what healthy American Churches will look like ten years from now. We start our discussion on this topic assuming we will not yet face open persecution for our Christian beliefs ten years from now. What kind of changes will we see in strong Christian churches in America?Read More
For Christians seeking to understand the last days, fewer things grab our attention than talk of a Middle East Peace Plan between Israel and her enemies. Many believe Daniel chapter 9 talks about a seven year peace treaty between Anti-Christ and Israel that will usher in the final countdown to the return of Jesus to judge all men and nations.
President Trump is unveiling his “Deal of the Century,” aimed at bringing peace between Israel and her enemies, and many in the Christian community are watching to see if it is eventually accepted and implemented. But before we get the cart before the horse, let’s take a look at the practicality of the plan being acceptable to all parties concerned. And remember, even if a peace plan is eventually signed that doesn’t mean it is the peace treaty Daniel prophesies. There have been others before this.
John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio joins Mike and David to talk about this as well as continue our discussion from yesterday on Marxism invading American Christianity.Read More
The economy in our nation is doing well and many Americans feel life is pretty good. But there are storms brewing that might threaten to bring more chaos and division to our nation as the underlying social and spiritual fabric of our nation spirals downward.
Democrats seem intent on getting rid of President Trump regardless of the cost, tensions in the Middle East are ratcheting up, and Americans have never been more anxious. Our leaders are unable to set aside their lust for power long enough to address the growing crisis in our nation including the level of political angst and anger. And we have a Christian Church that seems to be dividing right down the same ideological and political lines.
The student of Biblical Prophecy is not surprised at these events, but it does challenge us on how to live as Christians in a decaying culture and world that is aligning itself behind the coming Anti-Christ who will directly oppose God.
Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministry joins Mike and David to look at the coming political, social and spiritual crisis.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 only thing that never changes is God; everything else is in a constant flux of change: sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. The professing Christian Church in America has gone through a gradual change over the past several decades as secular culture has slowly infiltrated and influenced it. As secular culture, public education, media, and an increasingly powerful government put pressure on the church to approve of a godless agenda, we will see many churches start to buckle to the pressure and conform to the world. Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project and Elijah Abraham of Living Oasis Ministries travel around the nation and the world sharing the gospel and equipping churches to remain anchored to the truth of God’s Word in a world that is pressuring them to conform to the ways and values of this fallen, sinful world. They both join us in studio for a frank discussion on the condition of the church and professing Christians in America.Read More
As Solomon once said, there is nothing new under the sun. Today, we read your comments and answer your questions by going to God’s Word. A few new believers emailed us this week as well as new listeners to our podcast. Some of the topics we tackle today include:How to pray according to God’s willChristians struggling with depressionThe importance of biblical prophecy and Israel.Pastors waking up to the deception infiltrating culture and churchJesus being presented as a social justice warrior? Atheism, Gnosticism, and liberal ChristianityRead More
A deadly fall down a mountain usually begins with a single careless step. And once we take that wrong step, the fall can be swift and lead to serious injury or death. It is no different with our eternal souls – and the souls of others. A single serious misstep of twisting God’s Word to appeal to our flesh can often lead to deception or even a fall.Deceived or deceivers? Today, Mike and David continue to look at the tenets of so-called Progressive Christianity, and how it often disputes and even contradicts the foundational teachings of the Bible. The unbiblical, progressive process of “de-conversion” starts off with questioning a single doctrine from God’s Word, but eventually leads to serious heresy. This leads often many souls to full-blown apostasy.In our first segment we are joined by Tim Hull of Ratio Christi Ministries to discuss his ministry to youth in college as well as tools we can use to bring people into saving faith in Jesus.We also discuss an article pointing common beliefs that progressive Christians often share with Atheists, proving the dangerous, slippery slope of liberalism calling itself “Christian.”Read More
Studies show a majority of younger people now approve of socialism, and one reason is the public education and liberal media portray it as something good. How else do you explain its modern popularity? Instead of the human utopia it is presented as, it is actually godless government control leading to communism. Socialism is used to imprison the very people who call for it, and force worship of government above God. Curtis Bowers has produced eye-opening, award winning documentaries on how socialism and “social justice” have even crept into the philosophies of the American church. He joins Mike and David in segment 2. In our first segment, Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council joins us to look at the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court election and its possible impact on abortion and religious freedom.Read More
Today we read your comments from the week and answer your questions, always going to the Word of God for eternal truth and biblical perspective. We open the podcast today with Mike giving a brief report on his experience this week at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Anaheim, CA. He spoke there about the threats against biblical Christianity from government and media.The topics include the House bill HR5, social justice, Replacement Theology, what exactly is the purpose of what we call “church”? We also touch on mindfulness promoted in government schools, how to confront a back-slidden spouse, psychology creeping into churches, as well as the good and the bad of the Hebrew Roots movement.Read More
Sexual intimacy between a man and his wife are a great gift from God. This relationship is a human representation of the deep intimacy Jesus wants with His bride, the church. When a man and his wife are sexually intimate there is a deep physical, emotional and spiritual bonding that God blesses.
But as Satan often does, he takes something beautiful from God and twists it to deceive people. Today, rampant sexuality has led to destruction and disaster: abortion, broken marriages, divorce, and sexual brokenness and even gender confusion.
Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins Mike and David to discuss the beauty of biblical sexuality and the snare of sexual sin that has led to dramatic moral decline in our nation.Read More
Vibrant, bible teaching churches are needed more than ever but are so very hard to come by. We need wisdom, biblical knowledge and understanding of God. We also need to show our nation the dangerous path we are on as a nation and people. But many churches seem intent on conforming to the ways of this world instead of transforming lives by the power of God’s Word. At a time when we need clear biblical direction we seem to often be lacking in in a growing number of churches.
It usually starts with leadership – pastors who preach the Word and set the example for the flock. Our guest, Pastor Randy White, joins us to discuss how pastors are being educated and influenced in today’s Christian Seminaries and Bible Colleges, and why that needs to change if we are going to see a true spiritual
l revival in the church and our nation.
On Fridays we discuss your comments and answer your questions – always looking to God’s Word. Several of you have written in about potential gun control laws and the possible threat of disarming the general public. Should Christians obey such a law? Also:
When pastors tell too many stories or analogies during a sermon, does it take away from God’s Word?
Christian parents needing advice for daughter with an influential lesbian friend.
The Jewish concept of “Minyan”- not “minion” as used in different contexts.
A man overhears women undermining the spiritual authority of their husbands.
Are we on the verge of Christian persecution in America and are Christians and churches prepared spiritually?

In spite of all the violence in America, and a growing hatred for God and His Word, we are still very blessed as Christians to be Americans because of the religious freedoms we have. That could be changing. But we have not yet suffered to the point of torture or death for our faith in Jesus Christ.
The same cannot be said for millions of Christians suffering around the world, whose very freedom and life are in danger because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs joins us to look at our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world who remain faithful to Jesus despite imprisonment, torture and even martyrdom. Will we be as
faithful to Christ if and when it comes to our shores?
