Since it’s important to address subtle deceptions in the church (and some not so subtle), we’re going a bit deeper today to tackle a teaching that affects what Christians believe about the kingdom of God. But many do not realize it. A few questions we’ll answer are: If the kingdom of Jesus Christ is coming soon, what do we do with our time here on earth in terms of working for the Lord’s purposes? And what exactly is ‘Kingdom Now’ theology?Read More
The economy in our nation is doing well and many Americans feel life is pretty good. But there are storms brewing that might threaten to bring more chaos and division to our nation as the underlying social and spiritual fabric of our nation spirals downward.
Democrats seem intent on getting rid of President Trump regardless of the cost, tensions in the Middle East are ratcheting up, and Americans have never been more anxious. Our leaders are unable to set aside their lust for power long enough to address the growing crisis in our nation including the level of political angst and anger. And we have a Christian Church that seems to be dividing right down the same ideological and political lines.
The student of Biblical Prophecy is not surprised at these events, but it does challenge us on how to live as Christians in a decaying culture and world that is aligning itself behind the coming Anti-Christ who will directly oppose God.
Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministry joins Mike and David to look at the coming political, social and spiritual crisis.Read More
In Matthew 12:38, the scribes and Pharisees asked Jesus for “another sign” not long after he had healed the sick and a demon-possessed man who was also blind. Jesus responded:”An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign but none will be given except the sign of the prophet Jonah”That “sign” was when Jesus would rise from the grave to prove His deity and God’s power over sin and death.Many Christians and churches today are continually seeking more signs and wonders. Let’s be clear: some are sincere believers in Christ, but their continual need for additional signs and miracles testifies to the weakness of their faith in the completed work of Jesus on the cross. We look at a critique from The Gospel Coalition regarding Bethel Church in Redding, California and its leaders Bill and and Beni Johnson, and we discuss the pitfalls of this charismatic movement.In our first segment we visit with author David Richardson to discuss content in his book Transparent – about how our deeply held assumptions can deceive us and hinder us in our walk with God.Read More
Everyone wants to feel like they belong to something special, connecting with other people in some meaningful way. Christians find it Christian fellowship; the world finds it in social media or sports. Some are seduced by “secret societies” or Gnosticism, thinking they can acquire hidden knowledge and understanding for the select few.This morning we take a peak behind the veil of perhaps the greatest “secret society” in the world: Freemasonry. It is a movement shrouded in secrecy and mystery and many believe it is a portal to worshiping a false god or even Satan himself.Carl Teichrib, author of “Game of Gods” discussing the coming one world religion, joins us this morning to take a closer look at Freemasonry. Can you be a true Christian and a Freemason at the same time? Was our nation founded by Masons and do they still influence policy and direction today? And what is the goal and purpose of this most secret of societies?Read More
The Bible is clear that there will be many false teachers leading people astray in the final years, and many professing Christians will be part of this final apostasy. It also tells us we should avoid anyone who teaches a gospel contrary to the Bible’s teaching. But Paul also tells us to bear with one another as believers; standing up for truth, but also not allowing insignificant divisions to cause problems. The problem is that we are not always clear about what is a significant or insignificant division within Christianity.Francis Chan has been on a very interesting journey over the past few years. He resigned as pastor of the mega-church he founded and went on a personal sabbatical. He has returned and finds himself in a growing controversy surrounding his criticism of American Christianity as well as his recent appearances at IHOP and alongside Todd White and Benny Hinn. Really?So where does Chan really stand on doctrine? Mike, David, and Crash look at the controversy and discuss the difficulties in being discerning Christians without jumping to conclusions or branding those we disagree with a “heretic” or “apostate.”ARTICLESRead More
Our world is in the midst of a social and political upheaval that is threatening institutions and confusing a lot of people. And many think this is a well planned series of events to lead mankind to seek a “savior” who will bring up peace and tranquility. The Bible warns us of such a man and calls him “Anti-Christ”.
Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministries joins Mike and Crash to discuss the rapid move toward globalization and how Christians can prepare for the coming persecution the Bible warns us about.Read More
The Bible warns us that globalism is inevitable and that one day the world will be united in purpose. But that purpose is to defy God and worship Satan through his puppet, Anti-Christ. This march toward globalism comes in many colors including politics, environmental issues, population control, and centralized governmental authority. It is being propagated regularly through academia and national media.
Christians are called to be unique and set apart from this world, but even increasingly in many churches we see a progressive worldview rearing its ugly head as some churches are so enamored with being seen as loving and tolerant by the world that even the precepts of God are set aside. The mantra of American Christianity seems to be how we can better fit into the world instead of being light to a dark world.
Today we look at the subtle and not so subtle ways globalist thinking is affecting everything from politics to national security, to how we conduct “church” these days. Gary Kah of Hope For the World has researched and written about the coming one world government and religion for more than 25 years. His early books were a clarion warning to the creeping globalism we now see being openly promoted in almost every institution in our world, including a growing number of Christian Churches.Read More
Words are meaningless without clear definitions. When we misrepresent the meanings and definitions of important words God uses in Scripture, all sorts of problems result including professing Christians being either ignorant or deceived.
This morning Mike and David look at eye-opening Barna Research from 2017 that shows the deeply-held beliefs of those who profess to be born-again Christians. We will compare what people believe to what the Bible teaches us about God and the Christian worldview. The results range from interesting to staggering.
In our first segment we check in with Tina Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, to look the ways secular culture, Hollywood, and television are poisoning and destroying the morality of our children.Read More
Mike and David welcome back to the program, Pastor Randy White, as he shares some fascinating insights about people in the Bible that we may not be aware of. By the way, the list of 15 people we need to know includes saints, sinners, judges, a prostitute, and the world’s first humanist and advocate for a one world government. Check out the podcast!
Segment 3: In their passion to block another conservative Supreme Court Justice who is pro-life, Senate Democrats brought in a female Methodist Church pastor to testify against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It is understandable that Americans are divided on Supreme Court nominees, but Christians should not be. It is heresy to claim Jesus would support a woman’s right to abort her child because, “Jesus would advocate for a just society that allows people to live their lives to the fullest.” Apparently that advocacy does not apply to the life of the child hanging in the balance in a mother’s womb. And of course her opinion is backed up by twisting the words of Jesus to say something that was not intended at all.Read More
These are some of your comments and questions we discuss today on air:
Should Every Christian be mature enough to be a teacher of the God’s Word?
What happens when a youth pastor uses games, entertainment, and get kids to “relate” to each other rather than teach the Bible or spiritual doctrines?
A brand new born-again believer in Christ asks for advice on her new life
Are some men more gifted spiritually than others?
The pattern of “positive preaching” rather than expository teaching in many churches today
A pastor writes us about feeling the pressure to put on a face that everything is wonderful in his life
If a person continues to be tempted and occasionally fall into sin, are they truly born-again?
Was Muhammad (Islam) influenced by the heresy of Arianism?
Are people waking up to the hypocrisy and hatred of today’s liberal leaders?
The fall of Willow Creek church leader Bill Hybels
Do some Christian leaders avoid controversial issues because they are either not informed or are they afraid they might lose members, tithes, or popularity?
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.Read More
God speaks very clearly in Scripture on the subject of human life and the value of the unborn. It’s quite confusing why some Christians are still open to exceptions on abortion and others are proudly pro-choice. Even science and biology provide evidence for human life in the womb.
We know at conception, a person’s complete DNA is present – separate from the mother – and we know when a baby’s heart starts beating, when their organs are developed, and that babies can feel pain in the womb at 20 weeks. But today, we’re looking closely at the issue of rape victims and their children.Read More
There’s so much happening in our world, country, and culture today it’s hard to know where to start. We cannot possibly tackle all the tough, controversial issues, but we sure can address some of the most recent news stories that affect our lives, our children, or churches.
David and Crash go through a few dozen news items of interest and strive to offer a balanced, Christian perspective to what’s going on today. As always, trust the Lord Jesus, make the Word of God your solid foundation, be discerning and understand the dark days we find ourselves in.Read More
“A firefighter rescuing people from a burning building may be fearful and prefer to be home with his family, but he ignores his fears and denies himself. Like him, our thoughts are not on ourselves but on the fate of the perishing.” Evangelist, Ray Comfort, Living Waters Ministry
Today’s topic is evangelism, sharing our faith, and the gospel. We discuss reasons to share the gospel as well as why most of us don’t do it. How much of it comes down to our obedience and trusting the Lord? Today’s guest is Jay Seegert of The Starting Point ProjectRead More
Most of us know and understand the fact that too much screen time can affect our lives. Some would say screens are frying our brains, but we won’t go that far. Media affects us emotionally as well, to the point some people simply have to unplug for a while. Kids need to do this even more so as they are forming life habits – including a worldview – and social media and technology does affect their young minds and behavior.
For Christian parents, the importance of protecting your children from all the dangers, seductions, and perversions on social media cannot be overstated. All parents must go the extra mile and take this very seriously. We catch up with Counter Culture Mom, Tina Marie Griffin to talk about the dangers of social media and today’s ‘accepted’ forms of entertainment.Read More
