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.Read More
There can be no doubt the rules of cultural engagement for Christians is changing rapidly – especially as we attempt to share our faith and live our lives. Just the mere mention of the Bible or the word “Christian” conjures up accusations of being an intolerant bigot, homophobe, and hater.
What do we do as Christian witnesses who are instructed to be salt and light in the world?
Today Mike and David take a comprehensive look at the controversy surrounding New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees who is being criticized from all angles over his recent support of the national campaign, “Bring Your Bible to School Day” (Oct. 3). Brees also responded to the criticism he received from cultural bullies and LGBTQ advocates as well as the Christian Community.Read More
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.Read More
Jesus taught that the greatest commandment was that we love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind and soul. In today’s busy, fast-paced world there are many things bombarding us, fighting for our hearts and minds; distractions that take us away from glorifying and enjoying God. What are some of these distractions? Money, social media, politics, leisure, and entertainment just to name a few. And every one of these can demand our attention, passion, or loyalty. Some will go to great lengths to assure that they become the “masters” of our lives.
John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins Mike and David to look at the power behind the institutions that vie for our attention and loyalty these days.Read More
On Fridays we discuss your comments and answer your questions – always looking to God’s Word. Several of you have written in about potential gun control laws and the possible threat of disarming the general public. Should Christians obey such a law? Also:
When pastors tell too many stories or analogies during a sermon, does it take away from God’s Word?
Christian parents needing advice for daughter with an influential lesbian friend.
The Jewish concept of “Minyan”- not “minion” as used in different contexts.
A man overhears women undermining the spiritual authority of their husbands.
Are we on the verge of Christian persecution in America and are Christians and churches prepared spiritually?

In spite of all the violence in America, and a growing hatred for God and His Word, we are still very blessed as Christians to be Americans because of the religious freedoms we have. That could be changing. But we have not yet suffered to the point of torture or death for our faith in Jesus Christ.
The same cannot be said for millions of Christians suffering around the world, whose very freedom and life are in danger because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs joins us to look at our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world who remain faithful to Jesus despite imprisonment, torture and even martyrdom. Will we be as
faithful to Christ if and when it comes to our shores?
To those of us who are older, seasoned Christians perhaps, we see an America today little like we experienced growing up. Certainly there were problems throughout our history, but nothing like we witness today. Moral decay, including the murder of 60,000,000 million children through abortion; a public education system that is in lock step with anti-god globalists; a media with no sniff of objectivity and in the tank for the far left; as well as a political party, the Democrats, that has completely sold out to global corporate interests and the radical LBGTQ lobby.
We live in a nation where both our religious freedoms and right to bear arms are increasingly under attack.
Pastor and best-selling author, Carl Gallups joins us to discuss just where America might be headed. He brings a unique perspective as a pastor, biblical scholar, and former Law Enforcement Official. Where are we headed and can this slide toward totalitarian government be averted? If not, what are the responsibilities of disciples of Jesus Christ toward a government that sees us as a threat to its power?Read More

This morning Mike and Crash read your comments and answer your questions using God’s Word. Our discussion this week with John Loeffler and Gary Kah have sparked discussion on how professing Christian Churches will respond to discrimination, pressure and persecution.
The Hebrew Roots Movement, “experiencing God” and “SOZO” type ministries are also discussed.Read More
It would be a tragic mistake to think that the seismic lurch to the far left by radical politic leaders in our nation is either temporary, isolated or without spiritual motivation. Rather than a political movement, radical Liberalism is part of a movement bent on uniting the world around global humanism, turning our backs on God. And the Word of God warns us of this tragedy as Jesus prepares to return to judge the nations.
Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins Mike and Crash today to discuss how the radical liberal movement in the U.S. is tied to godless globalism, and how Christianity is its number one threat and target.Read More
In Romans 1, Paul warns that people who reject the truth of God are turned over to a reprobate mind to do unspeakable evil. Mike and David discuss three examples of growing evil against Christians in China, Africa and India, and discuss how long it might be before that evil spreads to the U.S. and threatens Christians here.
We also talk with Pastor Frank Figueroa of Reasons For Hope Ministry on the challenges of reaching the people of Hawaii with the gospel, and talk about how our difficult challenges are God’s way of strengthening and preparing us for the work He has given us.Read More
Today we take another look at the state of Christianity in America and discuss the real hostility and discrimination against believers in Christ, as well as the possibility the gospel may soon be banned in our nation. We discuss the so-called Equality Act and its threat to Bible-believing Christians, and explain how the church itself has practically opened the door to welcome discrimination against God’s truth and the gospel. Why? Because we want to be loved by a world that hates Jesus and His Word.Read More
Three times in this sermon alone, Jesus mentions false teachers will deceive “many.” Also, the utter destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem was a prophecy, not a “sign,” it was a judgment of God on the Jewish people for rejecting the Messiah. Persecution often reveals traitors within the Church as well as enemies outside, and the test of any age is endurance. Those who endure to the end will be saved and the gospel must first be preached as a witness to the nations, then comes the end.Read More

The Bible teaches us that in the final years before our Lord’s return there would be a large, destructive war against Israel by her enemies. Could we be witnessing the stage being set for the final chapter of Earth’s history before the Lord Himself returns to judge mankind and establish his everlasting kingdom?
Gary Kah of Hope for the World joins Mike to discuss the events that seem to be pushing the world one step closer to the return of our Lord and Savior?Read More
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.Read More
For too long, too many people think of abortion as merely a “political” or a “social” issue”. Some suggest it only falls under the category of privacy: a woman’s medical decision “between her and her Doctor”. But the reality is we are talking about life or death for an innocent baby created by God in His image. Wisconsin Right to Life is one of the most prestigious, efficient pro-life organizations in our nation. Mike and David are joined by Heather Weininger, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life to discuss pro-life issues as well as the September 24 Green Bay dinner and reception for the Veritas Society.
