The Deception and Dilemma of Progressive Christianity

Our nation is seeing an infusion of radical progressive thought threatening the very foundation and future of our nation.  The Church in America is also witnessing a surge in hyper-liberalism leading many to question the fundamental and traditional teachings of the Apostles and early Church.  Is Progressive Christianity to be considered a part of Biblical Christianity or does it contradict Scripture?

Growing Acceptance of Marxism in Churches

As American Christianity generally bends over backwards to be seen as “loving” to the world, we have seen secular culture extend its influence within the church.  From the social justice movement to the powerful LGBTQ lobby, we see more and more churches accommodating things of this world directly contradictory to the Bible.  And now, with another presidential election on the horizon we are seeing an enhanced push for the church to embrace something that is directly opposed to the Bible: Marxist Socialism.

Mike and David look at the growth of socialist ideals within professing Christianity and why this is ominous and dangerous to the church.

The Cult of Modern Liberalism

Why does all this matter and why is it dangerous? Political liberals are one thing; we know exactly where they stand; But religious liberals have infiltrated churches across America and have deceived many. These men (and women) generally believe many of the same things as extremists on the left, and yet claim to be “Christian.”

Blaming Everyone but Ourselves: Where has Personal Responsibility Gone?

We live in the growing era of triggering, snowflakes and safe spaces.  Most young people are being indoctrinated into the belief that their opinion or worldview is the only valid one and anyone who dares question them is a threat.  It all goes back to Adam, who when confronted by God about his sin blamed Eve and God Himself for his poor choice.

In our final segment this morning we look at an interesting perspective by David Hoffman at the Christian Post, claiming that all the confusion in society and the church is perhaps God’s way of beginning to separate the wheat from the chaff spoken of in Matthew 3:12 by John the Baptist.

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to look at what the Bible says about personal responsibility and how taking responsibility for our own beliefs and actions is healthy for us as Christians.

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?

Fear of the Lord

Born-again believers and disciples of Jesus Christ have been saved and granted eternal life with God through our belief and faith in the gospel and Jesus Christ.  Yet we are told in God’s Word that we are to have a “fear of the Lord” even as believers.  We are also told he is our “abba Father” and that we can approach His throne with confidence.  So what is a correct “fear of the Lord” in the life of a believer?  Mike and Crash tackle that listener question today.They also discuss the dilemma of professing Christians still believing abortion is OK with God; financial scandals in Christian Churches and ministries; when is it time to leave your church?; the dilemma of so-called “Liberal Christianity”.

America’s Battle for the Soul of Institutions and our Society

Institutions in our nation and around the world are going through monumental change.  We are seeing governments, media, education, businesses, political parties, and sadly even churches embracing change in direction as well as values. John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has studied this metamorphosis and the worldview behind the decline, and joins us to discuss the changing fabric of society and its institutions.  How should we as disciples of Jesus Christ understand and respond to this caustic progression (regression?) around us?

Biblical Christianity in the Crosshairs

Americans have been historically blessed with a Constitution that guarantees us the right to religious beliefs and expression of those beliefs.  But slowly and surely those freedoms are under attack by secular humanists, public education, media and an out of control government.  At some point we will reach a breaking point in our nation where the Bible is viewed as hate speech and where every person who trusts in it as the Word of God will be seen as dangerous.Joining Mike and David today is Pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups.  Carl is a student of biblical prophecy and has studied the trends in Europe where Christianity has all but been eliminated from society.  Is America next – and what will be the consequences?

Is Christian Persecution in America Just Around the Corner?

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.

Dismantling the Lies of the Enemy

The only way to dismantle lies is to respectfully confront them with truth. We try doing this on our radio program when it comes to lies not only in our culture but sadly, within churches in America. Our guest is a professional ‘lie-debunker’ and travels around the world sharing the hope of Jesus Christ with people deceived by the clever deception of the enemy.

Today’s guest is Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministry! He’s back to talk about their video series titled “debunked” and the impact it is having in spreading the truth, love and grace of the gospel.

“…but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15

Concerns About Calvinism, and More Questions & Comments

Recently, we’ve received more listener questions on the 500 year old topic of Calvinism vs. Arminianism. Is this debate necessary and productive?  Or is it becoming a source for self-righteous condemnation and hatred of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ?  Is it important that we understand election, predestination and who is called before we can accept the gift God has given us through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ?

Also mentioned: why not taxpayer-funding for adoption rather than abortion? Mark of the Beast, word of faith theology, when does worship become entertainment, biblical marriage, and the persecuted church.
