Blaming Everyone but Ourselves: Where has Personal Responsibility Gone?

We live in the growing era of triggering, snowflakes and safe spaces.  Most young people are being indoctrinated into the belief that their opinion or worldview is the only valid one and anyone who dares question them is a threat.  It all goes back to Adam, who when confronted by God about his sin blamed Eve and God Himself for his poor choice.

In our final segment this morning we look at an interesting perspective by David Hoffman at the Christian Post, claiming that all the confusion in society and the church is perhaps God’s way of beginning to separate the wheat from the chaff spoken of in Matthew 3:12 by John the Baptist.

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to look at what the Bible says about personal responsibility and how taking responsibility for our own beliefs and actions is healthy for us as Christians.

A Confused and Lost Generation?

The human mind, created beautifully by God but corrupted by sin, is subject to believing lies are truth if the lie is reinforced often enough.  Today’s generation of young people have been continuously lied to by Hollywood, the media, and a public education system that denies the glory of God. Too many are being indoctrinated into a life of futility and hopelessness because they are looking for meaning and security everywhere except God and His Word.Tyler Geffeny of Ratio Christi Ministries speaks at conferences and churches worldwide challenging and equipping Christians to become better biblical apologists to reach young people with the hope of Jesus Christ in a world that leads many to pursue self gratification.  Tyler joins Mike and David to discuss current trends and the agendas the church is up against, especially in the American university system.

A Frustrating and Disappointing Life?

We all get frustrated or disappointed with life at times.  Things do not go as well as we think they should or as well as we think we deserve.  The world tells us we can have our “best life now” and that the world is there for our pleasure and enjoyment, and when it doesn’t work out that way we feel the frustration of life’s daily challenges and obstacles.As disciples of Jesus Christ our attitude should be different.  God’s Word tells us that Jesus has overcome the world on our behalf…so why do we still struggle with life’s challenges and disappointments?  Could it be that our expectations of God are arrogant and self-serving?  Could it be that we have not taken the time to really know the God we claim to worship and trust?Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash to discuss how a lack of knowing and trusting in God’s nature and character can lead to a life of frustration, depression or even defeat.

America’s Battle for the Soul of Institutions and our Society

Institutions in our nation and around the world are going through monumental change.  We are seeing governments, media, education, businesses, political parties, and sadly even churches embracing change in direction as well as values. John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has studied this metamorphosis and the worldview behind the decline, and joins us to discuss the changing fabric of society and its institutions.  How should we as disciples of Jesus Christ understand and respond to this caustic progression (regression?) around us?

We All Have Assumptions; Plus, ‘Using Jesus to Promote Evil’

Anyone can say they’re a Christian. If you ask most Americans, including our politicians, they will probably say they “believe” in Jesus.  But if we don’t take the time to ask them exactly what they think about Jesus or who they believe He is, we can’t possibly know for certain if they are converts or counterfeits.  Progressive “Christians” claim they are doing the work Jesus commanded us to do.  The only problem is they are teaching and promoting the exact opposite of what Jesus taught, especially on major biblical issues.  When we assume a person is a Christian just because they say so, we are easily deceived.Speaking of assumptions, we welcome a new guest to Stand Up For the Truth, Dave Richardson.  He wrote a powerful book about assumptions and how they can deceive us and even hinder us in our walk with Jesus Christ. Richardson’s book is critically acclaimed and comes highly recommended, as it discusses how our deepest assumptions often control our lives for better or for worse.

Are Americans Losing Faith in Church?

With each new survey we see an emerging pattern regarding religion and Americans:  A growing disillusionment with institutionalized religion.  Young people are leaving “church” in massive numbers, and even older people are starting to question why they should be affiliated with a church or denomination.  Mike and Crash explore the numbers and reasons, including a very related story of the rise and fall of Pastor James McDonald, a mega-church pastor whose teaching show was carried by hundreds of Christian radio Stations until he recently was fired over a serious financial scandal which uncovered a lavish lifestyle that has left his former church on the verge of bankruptcy.In our first segment we visit with Conservative icon David Horowitz to discuss his new book “Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America”.

Biblical Christianity in the Crosshairs

Americans have been historically blessed with a Constitution that guarantees us the right to religious beliefs and expression of those beliefs.  But slowly and surely those freedoms are under attack by secular humanists, public education, media and an out of control government.  At some point we will reach a breaking point in our nation where the Bible is viewed as hate speech and where every person who trusts in it as the Word of God will be seen as dangerous.Joining Mike and David today is Pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups.  Carl is a student of biblical prophecy and has studied the trends in Europe where Christianity has all but been eliminated from society.  Is America next – and what will be the consequences?
