The Basics of the Faith, and the Protestant Movement

This year, 2017 marks the 500 year anniversary of Luther’s reformation which changed the religious world in 1517. Today we continue our look at exactly what Luther wanted to accomplish and his impact on Christianity. We also look at the five “Solas” of the protestant movement and discuss their exact meaning and impact on our faith.

What is the future spiritual plight of America and can we even speculate at this point? Some hope that the natural disasters and political strife we face will inspire Americans to repent, unite and return to our Christian foundation and heritage. But have we become so arrogant and comfortable as a nation and a people that repenting before God is just unthinkable?

Church History, False Teachings, and Pro Athletes Led Astray

In our final segment today, we look at a sad story of an athlete many American football fans look up to as a role model. From what we know, this man was raised in a strong Christian, conservative family, but sadly by his own admission has now apparently abandoned his faith in the one true God. This happened in part because of the influence of a false teacher who was invited in by a team chaplain to speak to the team before a game years ago. That athlete is Aaron Rodgers and the man who influenced him was Rob Bell. And Bell has apparently convinced this high profile athlete and role model that the Bible cannot be trusted.

In our first segment, we visit with Pastor Randy White and look at the history of Martin Luther’s reformation, marking its 500 year anniversary this year. We discuss how most believers identify non-Catholics as Protestants, but is this accurate?

A Liberal Conundrum

Today we point to a story that exposes the hypocrisy of many liberals these days. What do the people that preach “tolerance” do when they run up against a religion that really does oppress anyone that disagrees with its doctrines? This morning we look at a mess Starbucks Coffee faces in Indonesia and Malaysia, heavily Muslim nations.

In our first half hour we are joined by Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio. Some of the topics we will address include the teaching of the eternal security for the true believer, something called the “sin of presumption,” and the challenges of raising Christian youth in the Church.

Five Hundred Years After The Reformation

This year, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s Reformation Movement: An event with ground shaking consequences for Christianity and the world. Luther spoke out boldly against the corruptions he saw in the Roman Catholic Church at that time, and changed the world of Christianity by the stances he took. Today we look at Luther’s background and life as well as a few other individuals who were influential in the reformation of Christianity and getting the Holy Bible into the hands of the people. Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio, who just recently took a group of Christians on a tour of Reformation cites in Europe, joins us to discuss its affect on modern Christianity.

Faith: But faith in Whom?

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no man may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, took the wrath of God against sin on the cross in our place, so through our faith in Him we might be forgiven of our sins and have eternal life with God. Faith plays a crucial role in the life and eternal destiny of every human being. Today we discuss our faith in Jesus Christ and God’s faithfulness toward us even when we are not faithful to His will for us with Pastor Mike Abendroth.

We also discuss a movement within a certain sect of Roman Catholicism calling on Pope Francis to proclaim Mary “co-redemptrix” with Jesus Christ. But the group claims this will point people to Jesus rather than distract them away from the only one who can save us. We’ll discuss their argument in our final segment today. Join us live at 9am central Thursday.

Nancy Pelosi: We’re Doing God’s Work

There are many professing Christians who selectively reference the Bible to justify their personal beliefs and worldview; yet they completely ignore the Bible when it contradicts other personal beliefs. This is one form of hypocrisy creeping into the professing church that needs to be addressed.

Sheltering Our Youth from Truth

Today’s American youth are being indoctrinated by an unbiblical, liberal, social justice education system – even at many Christian universities. A local Catholic college posted a sad and alarming letter to students that really shows just how poorly college kids are being “prepared” for life’s realities.

First, we check in with Don Venoit of Midwest Christian Outreach, who has written an interesting article titled “How to be David in the Court of a Mad King.”

Your Questions and Comments

Today is your program, when we read and address your questions and comments and together look to God’s Word for the answers. Some of today’s topics include:

The timing of the rapture of the church.
The doctrine of “once saved always saved.”
Discrimination against Christian teachers in public schools.
The use of wine in the Bible.
Challenges and pressures on single Christians.
How to witness to unbelieving parents.
The pressures on pastors and their families.

In our first segment, Todd Friel of Wretched Radio checks in with us. We discuss finding a proper balance when sharing the gospel or speaking the truth – and doing so in love and humility. It can be harder than it sounds as people come from so many different perspectives and backgrounds. (Check out Todd weeknights at 6pm CST on Q90FM.com)

All Eyes on Israel; Nabeel Qureshi, and Pastor’s Wives

The Bible is clear that in the final years before the Lord’s return, Israel will be ground zero for activity ushering in His return. Jerusalem is called a stumbling block to the world and these days approximately 25% of all discussion within the United Nations focuses on the conflict between Israel and her neighbors who have publicly stated they want it wiped off the map.

We also remember apologist, #Nabeel Qureshi (34) and his conversion from Islam, his heart for ministry, and his legacy. After a year long battling stomach cancer, Nabeel left to be with the Lord last Saturday. We also discussed the expectations the church generally places on pastors and specifically, their wives! There is not enough attention paid to the importance of loving, praying for and supporting them.

We’re joined on air by Jim Fletcher of Prophecy Matters to discuss the importance of Israel, Jerusalem, Damascas, and the Middle east in light of Bible prophecy. We also debunk the September 23 prediction of the rapture or apocalypse.

When Objectivity Sells out to Blatant Bias

Media has historically been referred to as the “fourth leg of our republic” because of its ability and past willingness to accurately report news and uncover hidden agendas within government. But what happens when the media decides to drive its own agenda instead of reporting news? The abortion worldview is one that is defended and promoted via most media outlets either directly or indirectly. Many feel we are seeing the results: a hard left turn toward progressive ideology and socialism in our nation.

Joining us to discuss bias and agendas within the media is Katie Yoder, Associate Culture Editor of Media Research Center. Has responsible journalism permanently left the building within mainstream media? Yes.

The Nonsense of “Christians Shouldn’t Judge”

One of the most misleading statements infiltrating much of the Christian Church these days is the statement that “Christians shouldn’t judge.” This misrepresentation of God’s Word has been used to excuse sinful behavior and render us ineffective in living lives of holiness and sharing the gospel with the lost. In reality, the Bible teaches us that Christians should be discerning and use sound judgment in our decisions every day, from the choices we make to our interactions with believers and unbelievers. What we judge and how we judge is where the rubber meets the road.

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us this morning to look at what the bible teaches us about making judgment on our own actions and the actions of others, believers and unbelievers.

Christians, Public Education, and Divisive Doctrine

We have all heard the sad statistics that a majority of young Christians leave their faith by the time they leave high school. Many more walk away from God after one year of college. And while there are certainly several factors in play, one that is often sited is public education and its clearly secular humanist agenda. Public school teachers are often accused of lying to students, particularly regarding evolution, but are they part of the agenda or do they really believe it?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to look at this issue and discuss the importance of biblical doctrine–even if it might sometimes be seen as divisive.
