Kanye West: Former Blasphemer Now Christian Brother

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.

Everything in Christianity has its counterfeit

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.

Headlines; the Insanity of a Confused Culture

Today, David and Crash catch up with some recent news stories that sadly reflect the moral decay of American society. But we need to be reminded that Jesus is Lord and God and He is our unshakable hope in times of cultural chaos. There’s ‘nothing new under the sun’ and God is still sovereign. He is not surprised by the wickedness in the hearts of mankind and the decline of America.

In Their Own Words: Democrats on Abortion

The truth is many Americans are confused or ignorant of what the abortion procedure actually does as well as about who or what is living and developing inside a pregnant woman. Some surveys might suggest sixty percent of the public generally supports Roe v. Wade. But wait! They also strongly back some major restrictions on abortion.

According to Gallup, only twenty-five percent of adults say abortion should always be legal, and most Americans oppose legalized abortion in the second and third trimesters. Did you get that? You won’t hear this during a debate of Democrats. Polls by Rasmussen and others reveal that support for Roe v. Wade drops dramatically when people are informed that babies’ hearts start beating as early as six weeks in the womb!

Stunning Outcome From University’s Discrimination Against Christians

This decision could be a precedent future groups can take to court. One small battle has been won but the war continues. I’m hoping, but not holding my breath to see if other American universities will follow suit and take the hostility against Christianity down a notch. Or at least just treat everyone equally even if you don’t agree with them. And that’s something we can all work on.

Who Wants to be God?

The race is on, just as the Bible foretold.  Various individuals, groups and organizations are speeding ahead trying to convince people that the God of the Bible either doesn’t truly exist, or that He would want us to come together and connect the “Christ consciousness” in each of us so that human beings can create utopia on earth. Today we take a closer look at the “oneness” movement, the age of re-enchantment, earth worship, and the openness to practically anything except biblical Christianity.

Carl Teichrib, who has studied the New Age and the various movements and organizations promoting spiritual unity and “oneness” joins Mike and David to discuss ecumenism, the World Council of Churches, Catholicism and Islam, the UN, Burning Man, and the World Parlament of Religions. Carl also provides insights from his extensive research contained in his latest book Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-Enchantment.

The Subtle Erosion of Biblical Literacy

Change is sometimes abrupt and immediate, but more often it is comprised of a slow erosion over time as little by little truth is replaced with opinions and emotions.  The serious decline of Christianity in America is the result of decades of subtle changes in what has been and is currently being taught in public education, what is presented in media, and from pulpits that often seem more interested in placating culture instead of speaking God’s truth and shining the light of Christ truth into it.

Open War is Upon Us: the Reality of Spiritual Warfare

When darkness increases, light shines the brightest. So how does America look today? Where is the salt and light? Are Christians equipped for the spiritual and cultural battles we are faced with today? As we strive to share the Gospel, there is also a spiritual war going on against Christ and His truth. The Bible encourages believers to be soldiers for Christ. And in Ephesians 6 Paul tells us to put on the armor of God. Why?

Believers need preparation and protection! Paul writes that the Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God, the only offensive weapon for believers. We must speak the word and, in order to do that we need to know the word of God.

Just Tell Me What Makes Me Feel Good!

“Please, pastor, tell me what I want to hear. Make me feel good. No hard truths, no tough topics, just love and grace and encouragement. Don’t get too deep. I just want to enjoy my life and not to be challenged in my faith.” Sound extreme? People may not admit it, but we might be surprised how common this attitude is among churchgoers in America.

Today’s guest is evangelist, pastor/teacher, and former Muslim, Elijah Abraham.
