Recognizing the fact many hurting and lost people were uncomfortable going to a church, a local outreach seemed to be the answer for drug dealers, strippers, prostitutes, addicts, and former prison inmates who felt outcast in society and unwelcome in traditional churches.Read More

Breaking: Kanye West is human! Yes he is apparently a new convert to Christianity. Yes he seems to be bearing some fruit for the kingdom of God. Yes, he was a blasphemer, idolater, self-worshiper. Yes, he has a long way to go.
But we’ve heard from pastors, celebrities, ministry leaders, and fans. We’ve heard many good reports about the sincerity and boldness of Kanye’s faith in Christ and enthusiasm for the gospel.
Bottom line: let’s pray for his growth and maturity, and watch with cautious optimism.Read More
Dave Wager and Crash discuss biblical discernment on another live broadcast of Stand Up For The Truth. Everything in Christianity has its counterfeit—false repentance, false confession, false conversion, false zeal, false love, counterfeit works of the Holy Spirit, counterfeit gifts of the Holy Spirit, even counterfeit life.Read More
It takes time, commitment, and discipline to train our flesh and mature in Christ, and one of the most important disciplines is investing in God’s Word. Growth in personal holiness is determined by our progress in self-discipline.
Victory always comes at a price. The effective Christian life demands we exercise self-discipline in areas like food, drink, sleep, our speech, family priorities, work, leisure, time management, and money. We must exercise self-control and restrict our liberties in whatever would hinder us from winning the prize.Read More
Is there anything in your life too good to give Jesus? Is there any sacrifice too great? Is there something you’ve been holding back when you could have done it – or given it to Him?
In Matthew 26, the stage is set and the players are all in place for the arrest and crucifixion of Jesus, and His time on earth is drawing to a close.Read More

Pyrite is a mineral made up primarily of iron that looks like gold, thus it’s nickname of “fool’s gold.” It looks like valuable gold but in reality, it is generally useless and of little to no value.
As America continues celebrating godlessness and too many members of churches fail to look significantly different than the secular culture taking over this nation. A growing number of churches and professing Christians are holding “fool’s gold” thinking it will save them when they stand before Jesus Christ as judge, only to find out what they hold is useless and even abhorrent before our Lord and Savior.
Elijah Abraham is a former Muslim and now born-again believer who travels around the world proclaiming the gospel, teaching pastors, and equipping believers who face constant threats of persecution. He shares insights about what he has witnessed with believers here in America compared to churches in countries where persecution is often a way of life. Elijah points out the lack of maturity, discipleship, and sound doctrine in too many American churches.Read More
A lot of Christians read quick, daily devotionals as part of their routine. The concern is in some cases it has replaced reading and studying God’s Word in depth as we become busier and busier and are looking for that “quick fix” instead of a deep, intensive Bible study.
That is certainly not to say that all devotional studies are bad or wrong; but a devotional written by man will often have the slant or perspective of the writer and may or may not accurately reflect God’s message or context on the subject. The best devotional study we can do is one directly from the Bible itself since it is inspired by God and eternal truth.
Pastor Jeff Solwold of Calvary Chapel in Madison joins us the good and bad of daily devotionals for Christians and how to use God’s Word to gain the wisdom and insight we need to navigate life in these challenging times. Pastor Jeff can be heard weekdays at 5a.m. here on Q90 FM Christian Truth Radio.Read More

People often ask fair questions about faith, God, the Bible, or about truth. Today’s youth are no different. Can you really know God, does absolute truth exist, if God is love why is there evil, do Christians live by blind faith? And many other honest questions.
But there’s a problem. Too often, believers in Christ do not have good, thoughtful answers for them. Are we equipped to answer these questions let alone help today’s young people for the spiritual and cultural battles they face every day?Read More
Black lives in mother’s wombs are perhaps some of the most endangered human beings. There is an abortion every 26 seconds in America, and in recent years, statistics show the black and Hispanic populations taking the hit. In New York City, for example, more black babies are now aborted than born.Read More
The universe reveals a complexity, design, and magnificence that staggers the imagination, and logic shows us that life could not have appeared by some random, spontaneous process. Evidence seems to point to a master plan and an intelligent being; such intricate, organized design must have come from a Designer.
The theory of evolution however, has been generally accepted by the scientific community and academia, and taught as fact in most public schools across America.Read More
