Is This the Future of America’s Churches?

Today we cover an intriguing article from Denver, Colorado about an “atheist church of free thinkers.” What is very interesting about the article is the words they use to describe their “community” are the same words that appeal to many young Christians these days: Free-thinking, questioning, skeptical, and conversational.

Is this the model for the future of church for our younger people? We discuss this with Dave Wager of Silver Birch ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute. Dave has worked with youth for 35 years.

The One Who Can Fix Our Problems in Public Education

In our final segment today we offer a solution to the Public Education mess we see as discussed from the crisis at Washington Middle School in Green Bay. The solution is simple, but not easy. It will require qualities sadly lacking these days: courage and conviction.

First up, we are joined by Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute to discuss legal cases threatening the religious freedom and conviction of Christians in our nation. Even his organization has been labeled a ‘hate’ group’ by the radical Southern Poverty Law Center. Has the Progressive/Marxist juggernaut grown so strong that it is inevitable? If not, what can we do to fight it and restore biblical principles in our nation?

New Apostolic Reformation Movement

Today we tackle the offices of prophet and apostle, signs and wonders, revealed Scripture or new revelation. What does it mean to take dominion over the earth? Where does spiritual warfare and revival come into play? What about those who call themselves Apostle or Prophet? These are among the issues Christian theologians and believers have discussed for hundreds of years.

This morning we also address the New Apostolic Reformation movement that most credit to C. Peter Wagner. Is it consistent with biblical teachings and the traditional Protestant views of the Bible? Dr. Gary Gilley is an author and pastor who has written extensively on the subject and joins us to give us his perspective.

Biblical Submission to Authority

This morning we discuss an important biblical issue that just goes against every fabric of our sinful, rebellious nature: submission to the authorities in our lives. In many ways America is an interesting paradox. We are a Republic governed by the rule of law—yet we came into existence by rebelling against the laws we were under (from England).

In our first segment we look at a disturbing story of how bad things can get when young people are not taught respect and to honor authority. A decorated Green Bay School Teacher recently resigned because student behaviors were so bad that her very life and health was in danger. And we discuss the sad irony of this fact: teachers facing anarchy from students when their own teacher’s union used to recommend they read and emulate Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals so they can learn how to undermine political authority over them. Are we headed straight to the brink of anarchy in our nation where there is no authority or order?

What about us, professing Christians, are we honoring the authorities in our lives as the Bible instructs? Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss the biblical mandate of honoring the authorities God has placed in our lives as believers.

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.

The Persecution of Jack Phillips

This fall the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of Colorado baker Jack Phillips who has been fined, attacked, and harassed because as a Christian, he chose to follow his religious conscience and not bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding. He is now receiving death threats. This will be a landmark decision with huge implications for freedom of speech and religious expression.

We cannot count on the secular news media to accurately give the details and ramifications of this crucial case. Media has sold out to the progressive agenda and LGBTQ movement and will probably spin things to make Jack Phillips look like some sort of hateful monster.

So today we take a look at the history and ramifications of the pending decision by the Supreme Court. If Phillips loses, how will the landscape change for Christian business owners and ministries? And will a defeat lead to churches being intimidated in a variety of ways?

Watching the Watchers and Q & A

The media is supposed to hold government accountable as well as inform and look out for all Americans, regardless of political affiliation. Some journalists today might consider themselves watchman over our government, but the truth is few actually do their jobs when a Democrat is in the White House as we witnessed during the Obama administration. Well, since Donald Trump was elected president, they’re back from with a vengeance!

We do not not defend everything the president has done or said, but what happens when the same media that is supposed to hold government to a high standard lacks the integrity, morals, and principles they are calling for? David Fiorazo exposes more media hypocrisy in our Media Watch Segment today.

We also answer your questions from this week. Some of the subjects we address include Oneness Theology, Lordship Salvation, Homosexual Christians, and The Willow Creek Leadership Summit.

A Warning Shot to Christians in Government

Last week, Senator Bernie Sanders, who could have been elected President, said some very disturbing things when questioning the President’s nominee for Deputy Director of Management and Budget. Sanders did not question Russel Vought’s financial or management qualifications when grilling him; he questioned if he should be allowed to work in the government because of Vought’s Christian beliefs. Apparently, it all stemmed from a personal statement Vought made on his personal facebook page: “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned.”

According to God’s Word, Vought is correct and that seemed to drive Sanders crazy. Also today in our Rightly Handling the Word segment we discuss “Seed Faith Offering” statements that television preachers often use to get people to give to their organizations. Just what does God actually promise when we give generously, compared to what is promised by these televangelists?

Doubt, Skepticism and Confusion

Satan’s bag of tricks are not all that extensive. He usually sticks to the same tactic because it works. He placed doubt about God into Eve’s mind, and the result was sin and death entering the world. These days the tactic remains the same: Get people to doubt God and His Word, and convince them that we know better than God who we are and what is good. But today Satan has a variety of institutions to reinforce the doubt he wants to spread including media, public education, Hollywood, and even sometimes naive professing Christians.

Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss the growing skepticism about God in society and within the church, and how we combat it with sound theology and method.

Abandoned Faith: A Lost Generation?

There have always been problems with communication and understanding between generations. Every younger generation that comes along is viewed with skepticism by more elderly generations. But the gap in communication and understanding between today’s millennials and older people is in some ways like nothing we have ever experienced.

While it might be easy to just think they’ll grow out of it, it is important to understand that this younger generation faces serious challenges many of us have not faced; and they been raised in a public education system and media presence that has caused them to become skeptical about life as a whole.

We’re joined by a Christian apologist, researcher and author who has studied millennials extensively: Dr. Alex McFarland. He has written a new book Abandoned Faith: Why Millennials Are Walking Away and How You Can Lead Them Home, about the questions and struggles of millennials and how we can reach them with the truth and hope of Jesus Christ.

Religious Freedom Slipping Away

Today we cover two court cases that could have permanent damaging effects on religious freedom for Christians in America. They are blatant attempts to muzzle Christians by restricting how they can earn a living and provide for their families. If Progressives are victorious in these court cases, religious freedom as we have known it will become a thing of the past.

We’re also joined by Tina Maria Griffin of Counter Culture Mom to discuss the growing influence of Hollywood, television and video games on our children and how we protect them.

Hypocrisy & Contradiction in the Liberal Media

Did you know the liberal media considers themselves “patriots” for hammering President Trump…but considers him “unamerican” for responding to their criticism?

Or that President Trump’s misspelling of a word on a tweet might be a sign of a President on the brink of mental and emotional collapse, and a danger to our nation?

Or how about “all this climate change is due to humanity” while they acknowledge natural climate change has been a reality for thousands of years?

These are a few of the topics we will cover in our Media Watch segment this morning. Also we respond to your questions from our last couple shows.

Technology: Servant or Master?

Smart phones that track your location; televisions and computers that can watch you; medical implants that monitor and treat us medically; and new super computers that some hope will learn how to think and act “human”. Depending on your perspective the future of technology can sound exciting or frightening.

There are serious scientists backed by rich individuals who actually believe that in the next 10-20 years human beings might have the ability to “live forever” as we integrate computer technology with human flesh. And the corporation driving this vision is none other than Google: a corporation that has much more control over you and me than we even realize.

Does the Bible speak to this insane search for human immortality? How do we respond as Christians to this advance in technology? Pastor Carl Gallups, a radio show host and best selling author joins us for a biblical perspective on technology along with a discussion on end times prophecy.
