Taxpayers to Fund Trans Surgeries, Pelosi Progressives Relieved

We do not have much time left and the lukewarm church had better get serious. If we are not already a stench in God’s nostrils and unsalvageable as a nation, we sure must be close. How much longer will He withhold judgment? Many seasoned Christians believe we are living in Romans 1 and drawing near to some of the most intense parts of prophecy in the book of Revelation.

The good news is truth will prevail. The damage however, that’s being done to the very moral underpinnings of our nation has become irreparable. There is no turning back and tragically, many souls have been lost for eternity. I understand this is all happening fast, but if we remain on the sidelines and out of these conversations and public policy debates, expect the transgender train to plow full steam ahead leaving death and destruction in its wake.

The One Who Can Fix Our Problems in Public Education

In our final segment today we offer a solution to the Public Education mess we see as discussed from the crisis at Washington Middle School in Green Bay. The solution is simple, but not easy. It will require qualities sadly lacking these days: courage and conviction.

First up, we are joined by Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute to discuss legal cases threatening the religious freedom and conviction of Christians in our nation. Even his organization has been labeled a ‘hate’ group’ by the radical Southern Poverty Law Center. Has the Progressive/Marxist juggernaut grown so strong that it is inevitable? If not, what can we do to fight it and restore biblical principles in our nation?

Biblical Submission to Authority

This morning we discuss an important biblical issue that just goes against every fabric of our sinful, rebellious nature: submission to the authorities in our lives. In many ways America is an interesting paradox. We are a Republic governed by the rule of law—yet we came into existence by rebelling against the laws we were under (from England).

In our first segment we look at a disturbing story of how bad things can get when young people are not taught respect and to honor authority. A decorated Green Bay School Teacher recently resigned because student behaviors were so bad that her very life and health was in danger. And we discuss the sad irony of this fact: teachers facing anarchy from students when their own teacher’s union used to recommend they read and emulate Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals so they can learn how to undermine political authority over them. Are we headed straight to the brink of anarchy in our nation where there is no authority or order?

What about us, professing Christians, are we honoring the authorities in our lives as the Bible instructs? Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss the biblical mandate of honoring the authorities God has placed in our lives as believers.

Dangerous Rhetoric… Dangerous Events

The tragic shooting this week in Virginia of Republican Congressmen and staffers is a sad effect of the careless, hateful rhetoric that spews out of Washington politicians and our divided nation as a whole over the past two decades. Mentally unstable people get caught up in the media sensationalism and decide that violence is the logical answer. Is our nation on the brink of a social meltdown and political anarchy fueled by careless politicians and a reckless media? I think you know the answer. We will cover this story and others in our Media watch segment this morning. We also answer your questions from this week’s shows.

Doubt, Skepticism and Confusion

Satan’s bag of tricks are not all that extensive. He usually sticks to the same tactic because it works. He placed doubt about God into Eve’s mind, and the result was sin and death entering the world. These days the tactic remains the same: Get people to doubt God and His Word, and convince them that we know better than God who we are and what is good. But today Satan has a variety of institutions to reinforce the doubt he wants to spread including media, public education, Hollywood, and even sometimes naive professing Christians.

Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss the growing skepticism about God in society and within the church, and how we combat it with sound theology and method.

The Great Deception of Media, Public Education and Fake Christianity

The Bible warns us that in the final days deception would become so rampant and powerful that many would abandon biblical Christianity for a world-wide system based on Humanism, elevating the thinking of mankind and dismissing God and His Word. Over the past 20-30 years the face of media, public education, and even the Church in America has changed so radically that it looks nothing like to used to. And the sad truth is in the here and now, Secular Humanism is winning the hearts and minds of many youth–youth that will one day lead this nation and our local churches.

Our guest today is Don Venoit of Midwest Christian Outreach as we take a sobering look at the decay of American culture and thought, along with the many problems facing the Christian Church in America.

Discrimination… to Persecution… to Martyrdom

First, a reality check. As Christians living in America, with the exception of a little discrimination, we are quite comfortable and surely not undergoing persecution (at least as many in the world are experiencing). What we see is increasing ridicule and hostility toward the gospel and true believers. But this mockery and discrimination has an historic pattern of leading to persecution and even martyrdom. We saw it in the early formation of The Soviet Empire and Communist China, where hundreds of thousands of Christians were murdered in the name of Communism. Biblical Christianity stands in direct contradiction to socialism, (the modern definition of) liberalism, Communism and totalitarian rule.

William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition joins us today as we look at several news stories of persecution of Christians around the world. We also look at stories here in the U.S. where ridicule and growing discrimination of Christians might well be leading our beloved nation to one day join the list of nations where Christians risk their lives for proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Next Generation that Will Lead the Church

Once Joshua died the nation of Israel began a steady decline that got so bad they eventually started worshiping a false god who actually required child sacrifice along with other things that God calls abominations.

In America we have seen a steady decline in the study and application of God’s Word and a growing number of churches that look more like social clubs instead of gatherings to worship God and equip one another for the works of the Holy Spirit. And in the next decade or so the current group of younger people called “millenials” will be leading our churches and our nation.

Dave Wager works with younger people as Director of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute, and joins us this morning for a frank discussion on the world view of Millenials and how we as their elders have shaped their beliefs and views. Jeff Strommen of HopeNet 360 and co-host of HopeNet Radio gives us the Millennial perspective today.

The Cesspool of American Culture

If you are old enough to remember life in America in the 1950s and 60s, you would remember the culture of entertainment was much different back then. You could actually watch television with your children without fear of them being bombarded with messages of perversion, violence, and overt sexuality. And you also trusted your public school to actually teach math, science, and history without indoctrinating your children into believing evolution, becoming little earth muffins, hating America, or being encouraged to explore sexuality in ways contradictory to biblical morality. As they say, those were the good old days.

But today our youth are inundated with sexual perversion and godless worldviews at every turn. It is a sad reality that the influence of parents wanting to raise their children with Christian values has become more and more difficult.

Joining us to discuss the filth that passes for entertainment, and the blatant systematic brainwashing of our children is Tina Marie Griffin of Counter Culture Mom.

Is ‘Transgenderism’ Here to Stay?

Facebook now recognizes 71 different genders options that members can self-identify with. The Federal Government has expanded its list to more than 50. And, according to some, transgenderism has almost become a badge of pride and honor among youth desperately seeking approval from their peers.

We know God created human beings male or female, and in His image. But we also know that the Word of God has increasingly been marginalized and dismissed as antiquated in our society.

This morning we look at the increased pressure to expand “gender” and the growing punishment of those who will not go along with the agenda. Matt Walsh joins us for an interesting, thought-provoking discussion.

Sliding into Humanism, Moral Relativism

I wrote my latest book, The Death of Christian Thought, to warn Christians how the dangerous lies of Humanism were infiltrating the hearts and minds of an increasing number of professing Christians, leading many away from God and toward eternal damnation. This morning in our second segment we cover a recent study that shows just how bad things are getting as the spiritual beliefs of younger people stray further and further away from the truth of God and His Word.

In our first segment we talk with Pastor Randy White about a very interesting book by Dave Breese titled Seven Men Who Rule the World from the Grave. We’ll look at seven men whose anti-Christian beliefs and philosophies continue to strongly influence people and society long after their deaths.

Just How Low Can Humanity Sink?

In our final segment this morning we cover a tragic story of what can happen when people are taught that human life is an accident of the universe instead of life created by God in His image. A group of teenagers in Florida saw a man drowning, and instead of trying to help him they recorded the event on social media, mocking him as he splashed around. Now, two young daughters are without their father.

First up, we talk with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project and discuss his article, “A Simple Approach to Sharing Your Faith.” Have we made sharing the gospel something we dread instead of enjoy doing? What are some ways we can open up a discussion with anyone, offering them the hope of eternal life with God?

Discernment or Self-Destruction?

This morning on Stand Up For the Truth we read your comments and answer your questions from this week.  One central theme is discernment issues within Christianity.  Are we using proper biblical discernment or engaging in prideful witch hunts, looking to discredit others who we disagree with?  Also, several have chimed in regarding young people seeking “community” outside the confines of church. We discuss these and other topics of interest today.

First up, David covers our weekly Media watch segment, answering this question:  Why does secular media dedicate so much time to covering issues Americans say they don’t care about?

Controversial Issues in the Christian Church

Families and societies operate best when there are fixed standards of morality to guide our actions. In our nation, we were established upon the rule of law, supposedly giving us clear instruction what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior. As Christians we are guided by God’s Word which sets the ultimate standard for morality and acceptable behavior for us. But what happens when “normal” becomes subjective to personal feelings?

In the first segment today, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to keep an eye on world wide economic trends that point to globalism through a coming shake up in the world economy.

Is This the Future of America’s Churches?

Today we cover an intriguing article from Denver, Colorado about an “atheist church of free thinkers.” What is very interesting about the article is the words they use to describe their “community” are the same words that appeal to many young Christians these days: Free-thinking, questioning, skeptical, and conversational.

Is this the model for the future of church for our younger people? We discuss this with Dave Wager of Silver Birch ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute. Dave has worked with youth for 35 years.
