Dead But Still Wielding Power & Influence

All people eventually die, but some continue to impact generations of people for a very long time. While there are certainly positive examples of this, today we focus on seven people who have died but continue to have an incredibly destructive, negative influence on the world. From evolution with Darwin, psychotherapy and humanism with Freud; progressive education with John Dewey, and the economics of John Maynard Keynes, these individuals left a legacy that has led to a heap of problems.

Our guest this morning, Pastor Randy White, discusses a book by David Breese titled 7 Men Who Rule the World from the Grave.

Though their bodies lie cold and dormant, the grave cannot contain the influence these seven men have had on today’s world. They continue to rule because they have altered the thinking of society. They generated philosophies that have been ardently grasped by masses of people but are erroneous and anti-scriptural. Today these ideas pervade our schools, businesses, homes, even the church. As we continue to unkowningly subscribe to their philosophies we keep the grave open for: Charles Darwin, Julius Wellhausen, John Dewey, Sigmund Freud, John Maynard Keynes, Soren Kierkegaard and Karl Marx.

In the final segment today, we cover a controversial article about another disappointing voice influencing the Christian community.

Apostasy & Lies: Will Fans of ‘The Shack’ Care?

Can we at least agree, as Christians, to hold up Young’s words and beliefs against the truth of God’s Word revealed to us in Scripture? As we approach this program today, we should ask what your thoughts are and do you think Young’s description ad understanding of God line up with the Bible or contradict it?

The Shack appeals to our human desire to be loved and forgiven, but it discounts what is required by God: confession and repentance. The movie plays right into the growing mindset in America about wanting benefits without responsibilities. It’s overall message is that God conforms to us instead of our need to be transformed into the image of Christ which produces holy living. The Shack is the prefect message for people who want to think we are all basically good in nature and character.

Using “The Shack” for God’s Glory

The Shack is a very controversial book within professing Christian circles that is now out in a movie that many professing Christians are excited to see. And Christian churches, ministries and radio stations (not ours) are promoting it heavily under the guise that it can be a tool to share the gospel with unsaved friends. But there is a slight problem: the true gospel does not even remotely appear in the book or the movie.

This morning we discuss The Shack with James Walker of Watchman.org and look at the life and theology of the author, comparing the movie’s theology with the Word of God. And we will attempt to equip you to accomplish what the promoters are claiming the movie can do: reach the lost with the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.

Creation to Christmas: Old Testament Timeline

Two weeks from today Christians will celebrate and reflect on the birth of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh and our Messiah, who came to set us free from the punishment and captivity of sin. There is plenty of prophecy and very important history leading up to that amazing event that sadly gets increasingly ignored in most churches. It is called the Old Testament and it contains answers to many questions that the world is asking.

In fact if we do not understand the history of mankind and how they related with God leading up to the birth of Jesus, we will fail to grasp the true significance of Jesus’ birth along with his pending return when He judges all of humanity for eternity.

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us for a look at the history of mankind from the beginning of creation up until the birth of our Lord and Savior. The answers to our questions about God, His creation, our sinful nature and need of redemption are there. We just need to take the time to study God’s Word from the beginning.

How SCOTUS Works, & the Significance of Standing With Israel

Over the past several decades, most presidential candidates declared they believe Jerusalem is the true capital of Israel and that they would move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem if elected. History has proven this to be political rhetoric to capture more votes as no past president has followed through on the promise – Until now. Yesterday, President Trump kept his campaign promise–a rarity for candidates these days–and proclaimed the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city and would begin plans to move our embassy there. Whatever you think of President, Trump it is certainly refreshing to see a candidate actually follow through on a campaign promise.

Other than Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, world leaders are reacting with anger, claiming this will set the “peace process” back. This is the same ‘peace process” that has produced zero results for many decades. This morning we will discuss the potential effects of this courageous move by a controversial president.

In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council and hear some fascinating insights on how the Supreme Court works, as well as her thoughts on the opening arguments in the Jack Phillips’ religious freedom case. Is religious freedom hanging in the balance and could it come down to one man’s vote?

Protecting Children, Ministry Leaders, & Christian Business Owners

We face an enemy who is crafty, experienced, and evil; Satan is ‘the father of lies.’ Ever since his unsuccessful rebellion against God at the beginning of time he has honed his craft, finding innovative ways to attack the children of God in hopes of discrediting the gospel message.

Today, Christians face increasing discrimination and ridicule in our nation. Fueled by Hollywood, media, public education, and a progressive government, we are seeing the rights of religious expression and worship attacked on several fronts. Cities and states are passing laws forcing Christian churches and organizations to choose to either approve of and support immoral, unbiblical values or risk being shut down.

But the enemy we face is clever and devious and never puts all his eggs in one basket. He is also stirring up problems within Christian churches and ministries by attacking our compassion for others. Churches and ministries are committed to ministering to anyone seeking help or hope. But the enemy has sent “spies” into our camp attempting to undermine our work. We are seeing frivolous lawsuits aimed at discrediting and even shutting down faithful warriors for Christ in order to intimidate the church.

In our second segment, we share the sad story surrounding Ravi Zacharias, a respected Christian leader dedicated to sharing the gospel and loving others, who was falsely accused of sexual improprieties even though it appears he did everything he could to be above reproach.

In segment three, we touch on the opening arguments of the Supreme Court case involving Christian artist and bakery chop owner, Jack Phillips, who is simply asking not to be forced to take part in gay marriages.

In our first segment we check in with Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom to discuss how we protect our children against the horrible influences of movies and video games. We also discuss the increased sensitivity to sexual harassment in our nation and the downside of ‘guilty until proven innocent.’

The Advent Season

We are three weeks away from the celebration of Jesus Christ, our messiah, being born as a human, living as one of us yet remaining sinless, and dying on a cross for our sins. Yet the sole focus of the Christmas season seems to be on the birth of Christ, not including his life, death, burial, resurrection and promise that He would return one day to judge all men by His Word. Are we in essence “misrepresenting” Him when we fail to communicate the full gospel and reason for His first and second coming during the Christmas season.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch joins us to discuss this and also how pastors, churches and ministries should react to the increase in charges of sexual harassment bombarding our institutions. Should this cause us to look at how we counsel and disciple people?
