Why Don’t We Share the Gospel More Frequently?

Jesus said, “If you love me you will obey all I command (John 14:15).” His final command was for His followers to share the gospel and make disciples. With few exceptions, most of us only talk about God when it is convenient or we ‘feel led’ to do so. Why are Christians in America not more passionate about sharing the good news with those who are perishing?

Is it shyness? A desire to please man rather than God? Not wanting to offend others? Not wanting to be seen as judgmental? Are we just too busy? Or could the deeper reason be that we are afraid of the repercussions like we see happening to our Brothers and Sisters in China, India and around the world?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss our reasons for not sharing the gospel and how we can overcome our hesitancy and inconsistency.

Are we Medicating Ourselves into an Intellectual Coma?

Watch television for any length of time and you are sure to see ads for new medications promising to make your life better. And while many of these drugs have dangerous side effects, the Pharmaceutical Industry continues to make billions of dollars peddling the latest “cure” for the latest problems of life. Anti-depression medications have saturated the market and record numbers of American children are now being medicated for ADHD. Today, Mike and David discuss the dangers of over-medication and the long term effects on mental health.

On a related subject we look at two interesting, yet very sad articles that are becoming all too common in these days. First, the number of young girls struggling with “gender identity” is skyrocketing; and second, a professor in Sweden is under attack for stating something so obvious that only a fool would argue that he is wrong. Is there a connection between over medication and the intellectual insanity permeating every aspect of society?

Battle in the Spiritual Realm

In Ephesians 6, Paul tells us that while people of the world will hate us because we are disciples of Jesus, our battle is not against them. It is against the “spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” We are then warned to put on the full armor of God to wage war against these demonic forces.

In our final segment today, Mike and David look at an article on spiritual warfare from pastor Karl Payne discussing the demonic forces behind the division in our nation and how we should live in this world that hates us more and more.

We also visit with Pastor and best selling author Carl Gallups to continue our discussion from last month on his new, provocative book Gods of Ground Zero. Gallups reveals interesting facts and theories regarding the Garden of Eden, tying it in with actual history as well as biblical prophecy.

The Fight for Religious Freedom has Just Begun

If you are naive enough to think that simply because the Supreme Court gave a narrow victory to cake baker Jack Phillips earlier this year means our religious freedoms are secure – you’re living in a fantasy world. Do not underestimate the intolerance and vile hatred of the radical left as well as the LGBTQ movement toward God and Christianity.

The ink was barely wet on the Supreme Court decision favoring Philips, and now he is back in court accused of a similar “crime” in the minds of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. This time, a man claiming to be a woman filed a lawsuit against the Christian baker. The Colorado Commission will this time claim they are sensitive to Phillips’ religious beliefs, but that this type of “discrimination” just cannot be tolerated. Mike and David will look at the complaint in detail to help you understand how Christians are being set up for badgering and intimidation, all in the hopes of shutting us up.

In our first segment, Mike and David discuss church security with retired Police Office, Joel Benson, who has a passion to equip churches to protect their members when they assemble to worship God.

Pastors: Stop Imitating and Embracing the World

Today Mike and David discuss a provocative and compelling article by Shane Idleman that challenges pastors to stop imitating the world and return to the fundamentals of being a pastor: Teaching the complete Word of God, challenging the flock assigned to them to grow in holiness, and to quit worrying about offending members of their church. Idelman makes an interesting observation in his article: that at a time when “unity” is the buzz word in many churches perhaps it is time for a little separation to divide true born-again believers from the goats.

In our first segment, Mike and David talk with a Messianic Jew who has committed his life to reaching Jews with the truth and gospel of Jesus Christ. We will discuss why most Jews reject Jesus as messiah and how we can share the truth of the gospel with them.

Denying God’s Word & Science to Promote Chaos

One definition of insanity you sometimes hear is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. But another definition could be “a refusal to accept reality.” No matter what facts or truth is presented, the person refuses to accept them and continues to insist he is right even despite irrefutable evidence. This seems to define radical liberalism in our nation.

The evidence supporting life is clear in God’s Word and true science with each passing year proves life begins much earlier than previously thought. And on the issue of “gender dysphoria,” science continues to confirm the truth given to us in God’s Word: gender is assigned at conception and there is nothing man can do to change that.

No amount of truth seems sufficient for far left liberals bent on enforcing their agenda of godlessness. Today we look at a few more stories about radical views and arguments disconnected from truth and reality. We check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council.

A Strong Warning to the Churches

In the book of Revelation, (The Revelation of Jesus Christ), chapters 2 and 3 focus on some of the good deeds of early believers as well as important warnings Jesus gives to seven churches in the area. While Scripture contains some encouragement for each church, Jesus also includes serious warnings of necessary repentance. John details how some of the churches were falling for apostasy and mentioned persecution for those remaining faithful.

Were these letters solely for those specific early churches? Do the warnings of Jesus apply to us in any way and do they contain warnings for today’s church? Let’s take a quick look at what Jesus said and what John wrote. You’ll likely find it very relevant to our churches today and may even notice some striking parallels to America. There is a clear call to repent and return to the things of God, including urgency about the times and passion for truth.

Chipping Away At The Foundation Of The Christian Church

The church established by Jesus Christ through the apostles will never be defeated. That church is comprised of committed believers and disciples around the world. But what we have come to call “church” here in America—a place of worship rather than the people who worship—is coming under a variety of attacks from various sources.

Satan is using institutions like media, public education and government to bully and pressure the church into compliance or silence. And he is also using our own personal pride to appeal to our flesh to get us to believe that what we think or feel is on a par with what God says in His Word.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has been a Watchman on the Wall for several decades, warning Christians about the direct and subtle attacks of the enemy against the church. John joins us to day to look at the growing division in our nation and church, and how we can guard our heart and thought process against this deception.

Silencing Bible-Believing Christians

One of the easiest ways to get someone mad at you these days is to proclaim something like “I believe the Bible is the Word of God and Jesus is the truth.” The reaction you receive will vary from a look of pity because you are “ignorant” to an angry or defensive response because they see you as a narrow-minded, homophobic bigot. And while American Christians still enjoy religious freedoms for the most part, many around the world do not. Make no mistake: the left is out to strip you of those freedoms any way they can; and they will stop at nothing until you are badgered, bullied or intimidated into silence.

This morning we look at how social media and the legal system is trying to silence Christians.

In our first segment, Mike and David talk with Attorney and professor, Mark Maxwell, a Christian in the entertainment industry who has written a new book that questions the effectiveness and morality of networking for success.

The Heart of a Missionary

As we live a life of comfort, safety, and so many blessings we take for granted here in America, we need to be reminded that the USA is not the center of the universe. Around the world, there are thousands of Christians dedicated to missionary work and spreading the gospel to every tribe, tongue and nation. And in too many countries, our brothers and sisters face discrimination, imprisonment and even death. Our responsibility as Christians is to pray for them and support them as God leads us.

Today we are joined by Dave Bell, who along with his wife Jen, have been missionaries to Kenya for more than a decade. (MPM Kenya on the web) The Bells founded Mahali pa Maisha, an infant rescue center that helps care for and locate Christian families to adopt orphaned babies.

Dave joins us to talk about the work God has them doing and the obstacles they face in sharing the gospel and the hope of Jesus Christ in poor nations. We will also share a few news stories of Christians in Africa, North Korea, India, and China being persecuted for their faith in Christ.

Canada Forces Christians into the Closet

Toronto Police said a Christian man, Bill Whatcott “distributed anti-gay material which promoted hatred toward the gay community.” The 51-year-old was charged and faces 2 years in jail.

Also, Canada’s Supreme Court recently ruled 7-2 against a Christian college, Trinity Western University’s Law School, essentially forcing them to choose between biblical standards or accreditation, basically suggesting Christianity and academia are incompatible.

And a judge in Canada has officially declared two men and a woman parents of one child, on the child’s birth certificate. The unmarried threesome are in a relationship together; the judge simply pointed out that “society is continuously changing…”

Looking Behind the Curtain

It is easy to pursue comfort, leisure, luxury and peace in part by living in our own little bubbles, impervious to all that is happening around us. Newsflash: the nation as well as the church in America are divided. Biblical illiteracy is rampant and true history has been rewritten, but on the surface things are good for most Americans.

Aside from the national debt, the economy is generally stable with historically low unemployment and increasing jobs every month. But under the surface things are volatile and becoming more contentious by the day. Because political disagreement has been replaced with vicious hate and personal attacks, many fear our nation may be on the brink of a second civil war. The Far Left is committed to globalism and are beside themselves as President Trump continues to push his “America First” platform which includes appointing pro-life judges that might threaten the legal murder of innocent children.

Behind the scenes, elites and the establishment continue to work on the foundation of a one world government where God is dismissed and mankind elevates itself. Today we discuss the Deep State, transhumanism, end times prophecy, and a recent survey showing over 60 percent of 18-36 year-old Americans favor socialism; much higher than previous polls.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World has researched and written about the coming one world government for thirty years and joins us this morning to take a look behind the curtain at the systematic move to globalism.

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.

The Growing Complexity of Freedom of Speech

The constitutionally protected right of freedom of speech and expression used to be a pretty straight forward issue. But with the advent of social media, corporate “branding”, and a society that is easily offended it has become a much more complex issue.

This morning we look at a couple stories that point out the new reality facing us in a society that claims to value freedom of speech but is becoming increasingly intolerant of any view that opposes a humanistic, God-hating agenda.

In our first segment Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss the challenges we as believers face in sharing the gospel with people currently blinded to the truth about God. Jay will discuss a common question we hear from people who doubt God’s existence: “If God created the universe, who crated God?”

What is Behind the Modern Liberal Curtain?

When you watch a movie with great special effects, what you see looks amazing (Buildings exploding, giant dinosaurs, super heroes flying). But when you look behind the curtain so to speak, and see how computer generated imaging produces these effects, the magic wears off and you realize it is all fantasy and illusion.

Today, we look at the hard core progressive movement in our nation and how it is built on contradiction and illusion, but sadly most Americans never take the time to look at what is actually going on or where we are being led. And this same deceit might just be infecting the very church you attend every Sunday.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio is an authority on the real agenda and thought process of the hardcore Left joins us to help us take a peek behind the curtain of illusion that is modern Liberalism.

Quote from John Loeffler:

“Are we going to be a free society with the rights guaranteed under the Constitution of speech and religion and press and property – all of which have been under siege by judicial activism for the last 50 years – or will we go careening forward into some kind of oligarchic, progressive, socialistic dictatorship that we know from countries around the world that always fails with economic and social collapse?”

We discuss the difference between Left and Liberal, the contradictions within the very thinking of progressives, the long-term effects of the transgender movement and gender-fluid conditioning, and the failure of many churches to stand for the inerrancy of Scripture and biblical morality.

No Comment or Question Off Limits

So many controversial issues and debates, so little time! Here’s what listeners want to discuss today:

To what level can a Christian be depressed?
How much does our faith play into our emotional and mental health, and how much depends on trusting God?
I know spiritual warfare is real because we are warned many times about it in the New Testament, but to what extent can demons influence Christians?
My strong hunch is that a majority of Americans have bought the lies about Justice Kavanaugh because they no longer think logically.
What do you think the greater problem in most churches is – ignorance in the pulpit or cowardice?
Didn’t know how extensive the Burning Man movement has become. It seems like a combination of New Age, humanism, environmentalism, and a combo of religions: can you please boil this ideology down so it’s easier to understand?
With all the division and spiritual confusion in the church, it’s no wonder many young people want nothing to do with Christianity today.
I’m a newer Christian, could you please explain Replacement Theology? Is it a salvation issue?
Hillsong’s stance on issues such as evolution, homosexuality, and seeker-friendly movement are concerning to the Australian Council of Churches. Hillsong produced some wonderful music, but as a whole they seem to have exchanged traditional, historical Christian doctrines to seek fame and fortune.
I’m a former Catholic and know some good Roman Catholic friends, even though many of their Church doctrines are unbiblical: can a Catholic go to heaven or not?
