Mary Danielsen: Weaponizing Words and the ‘So Jo’ Culture War

We discuss the weaponizing of words and how the left is changing modern language to fit PC agendas. Enemies of God and America are using new terminology to deceive or to draw people to their causes. ‘Woke, Cisgender, Intersectionality, and Hegelian Dialectic’ are a few we tackle today. Truth and the gospel are under attack and the opposition is playing to win.

Elizabeth Johnston, Activist Mommy: Fighting for Faith, Family, Freedom

Should Christians engage the culture and help expose darkness? Didn’t Jesus say we are the light of the world? Are so-called political and social issues also moral issues we should be speaking about? Today’s guest, author and activist Elizabeth Johnston, aka the Activist Mommy, says ‘absolutely,’  and states: “The Left has been advancing and claiming more territory while we have attended church, content to wait for Jesus to come back.”

When Church Becomes A Business

This morning we look at the continued fallout from a couple of Chicago area megachurches that allowed secular principles and techniques to influence how they conduct church. Harvest Bible Church is reeling from the financial corruption of now dismissed Pastor James McDonald while Willow Creek is back in the news as liberal Democrat Senator Cory Booker is under fire from the LGBTQ community for speaking at the Willow Creek Leadership Summit a few years back.

In our first segment we visit with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss activity and strategy within the Wisconsin legislature. Pro-life legislation is being proposed knowing radical WI Governor Tony Evers will veto it. Is there a plan behind passing legislation that has little to no chance of being enacted?

Questions, Comments, and a Call from Angry Listener

It’s Friday. There are always so many good questions and comments to get to, so her we go.

My daughter is 16 and wants nothing to do with church anymore, even though we raised her in church, the word, and prayer at home. She claims Christians are hypocrites and I fear she will be lost when she goes off to college.
I hear more Scripture in one hour on your show than I hear in a month coming from our pastor on Sundays.
Other than in Christ, is there any hope for our children and grandchildren to have a good life in such a dark culture driven by a godless, postmodern education system?
I am a “classical liberal” (not modern) but the primary reasons I vote for Republicans is they are pro-life and support free market capitalism.
Over the last several decades, we have been informed of how anti-Christian the progressive public schools are and that our children are being indoctrinated. Why is this not a bigger issue that Christians still send their children to such a hostile environment to be “educated”?
I am disappointed by your statements regarding the Ford/Kavanaugh allegations. You assume Kavanaugh is innocent, I believe Dr. Ford. Three people know the truth: Ford, Kavanaugh, and God.
The left doesn’t even know what “civil” means anymore. Their fruit is the opposite of truth: double-speak, hypocrisy, and often, outright lies.
I am a Christian and have supported the Democrat Party all my life, but cannot do so any longer. They are willing to destroy people to gain power. I was also supporting the killing of innocent children through abortion.
The #MeToo movement is causing many parents to be concerned for their sons in the future. We should raise sons of high moral character and integrity, but what about our daughters? They will be affected by this one-sided movement as well but I believe this should be a two-sided conversation in our society.
From that Barna survey you read, it sounds like many “professing born-again Christians’ are false converts that trusted an empty gospel of life enhancement.
I wish we would rethink denominations within Christianity. They seem to divide and do more damage than good, and often produce “fake Christians” – and impediment to true Christianity.

As the Battle Rages, Many Christians Opt Out

We are in a battle, but how can we successfully fight when half of the army refuses to engage? As Christians, we are soldiers of Christ and the warfare in this life is very real and yet, so many believers don’t want to acknowledge the reality of this fight. John R. W. Stott once said:

“We should not ask, ‘What is wrong with the world?’ for that diagnosis has already been given. Rather, we should ask, ‘Where is the salt and light? Where is the Church? Why are the salt and light of Jesus Christ not permeating and changing our society?’”

From the family to the church to the community and culture, Christians have been too preoccupied with earthly, temporary concerns than seeking first the kingdom of God. I realize this seems like a broad statement, but don’t you think America would look very different if true believers had been vocal and actively engaged in advancing the gospel over the last hundred years?

Today’s guest is Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council. We discuss everything from our local and state government to the transgender agenda which now includes Drag Queen story hours in our local libraries!

Big Brother is Watching and Waiting

George Orwell’s chilling novel about a futuristic state of government control and censorship seems to be unfolding right before our very eyes. The left, infamously touting their cause as one of respect and tolerance, has shown itself mean and spiteful toward anyone who dares publicly oppose their ideology. They are now willing to intimidate those who speak out against their agenda because they know they can get away with it for the most part.

Freedom of speech is under attack in our nation and when it is finally vanquished, sharing the gospel and the Word of God as truth will be punished. Today’s discrimination and mocking of Jesus Christ and His followers will be replaced with outright hatred and persecution. But hey that could never happen in the land of the free and the home of the brave, could it?

Today we focus on the intensifying attacks against the Word of God and those who trust in it. From Christian churches being vandalized to leftist politicians all but saying people who believe in the Bible shouldn’t be allowed to serve in government, the attacks are real and intensifying with each passing year. We had better wake up!

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins us to talk about the attacks on our freedom of speech and religious expression along with what he calls “The 5 Stages of Persecution.”

The Real Bullies

For all their bluster about hating bullying the far left in our nation has become the masters of bullying and intimidation. They espouse freedom of speech and expression…as long as your views line up with their views. We are seeing a focused targeting of free speech in our nation and the primary target is bible-believing Christians who dare oppose the left’s march toward globalism and control.

Brannon Howse, founder of World View Weekend, experienced this intimidation and bullying first hand last week. Two scheduled conferences in Wisconsin were shut down when left-wing organizations conducted a coordinated effort to intimidate the venues that were to host Brannon’s conferences, forcing them to cancel the events at a tremendous cost. This morning we talk with Brannon as we see this increased intimidation and bullying against Christians.

In our first segment, Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss the attacks against the Bible’s integrity and accuracy.

Did You Ever Imagine These Things Could Happen?

The response to our Listener shows on Fridays where we talk about your questions and comments has been overwhelmingly positive! It’s been great hearing from so many Christians every week, but is has now reached the point where we have continually been unable to get to all of the comments in a one hour Friday show. This has been a consistent pattern over the last several months and we typically carry them over to the next week. So in our second segment today, we will take some additional time to read your comments and answer your questions.

First, we will listen to and discuss a thought-provoking message from Jan Markell of Understanding the Times Radio titled “I Never Thought I Would See the Day.” This program just aired over the weekend across the country. We’ll also share our thoughts on the events and happenings in our lifetime that have been disappointing or shocking.

Tomorrow we will continue with YOUR comments and questions about: Billy Graham, gun control, Christian marriages, transgenderism, the political divide, Roman Catholic “last rites,” and believers being unequally yoked – to mention a few!

The Unintended Power of One Supreme Court Seat

The stakes couldn’t be higher, and the threats are coming in – even before President Trump decided to select a Supreme Court nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died last week. And since we know Joe Biden voters have proven themselves more than capable over the last six months of destroying people’s lives, businesses and cities, we know these are real threats.

CNN entertainer, Don Lemon said if Democrats win the presidency and take the U.S. Senate, “We’re going to have to blow up the entire system;” Wake up, Christian friends, and rally the remnant of true believers, those who live and vote what the Bible teaches. The conflict for the soul of America has reached a boiling point. Souls, truth, liberty, and righteousness are on the line. And by the way, your children are watching.

Pastor Dan Fisher: The Black Robed Regiment & Romans 13

For years, spiritual leaders have been shackling believers with a flawed interpretation of Romans 13 – especially as to how it applies to citizens living in a republic like ours. Consequently, Christian people who would normally stand against tyranny, believe that they owe slavish, unlimited submission to their government.

Patriot Pastor Dan Fisher tackles this controversial topic and proves conclusively that Christians not only have the right, but the responsibility to speak up about evil and stand up to tyrannical leaders – no matter the cost.
