Remembering our Nation’s Foundational Principles

As we come off our celebration of America’s Independence, it is important we recognize that the words and ideals of our founding fathers have been twisted by radical progressives to advance their agenda that America is evil so their globalist agenda can be forwarded. In reality, several Presidents–Democrat and Republican alike–have historically noted the importance of the Bible and Christian values to our founders in establishing our nation.

No doubt, and sadly, our founders had to compromise on critical moral issues such as slavery in order to get the Republic established, but those wrongs were eventually corrected. Today we share what some of our Presidents have stated about the Christian conviction of our nation’s founders. And we explore why many America-bashing leftists and progressives paint a different picture of the founders of our nation.

In our first segment we check in with Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom, to discuss the impact of Hollywood, entertainment and social media on our children.

Religious Freedom Slipping Away

Today we cover two court cases that could have permanent damaging effects on religious freedom for Christians in America. They are blatant attempts to muzzle Christians by restricting how they can earn a living and provide for their families. If Progressives are victorious in these court cases, religious freedom as we have known it will become a thing of the past.

We’re also joined by Tina Maria Griffin of Counter Culture Mom to discuss the growing influence of Hollywood, television and video games on our children and how we protect them.

Ducking the Issue of Sin: the Easy Way Out

We are losing ground by being silent. It’s gotten to the point when someone mentions sin in public, there is typically sharp disagreement, intense debate, or accusations of hate and intolerance. Why? We just don’t hear much about sin anymore. A central part of the gospel message by which we are saved, many church leaders today talk less and less about sin and its consequences. Sadly, Christians have been following their example.

We cannot keep ducking the issue of sin and expect the church and our country to change for the better. We cannot justify the path of least resistance or worse, the approval of sin any longer. Many lives are at stake. If we want to obey the Lord’s instructions and make the biggest impact, there is only one choice: we must speak up…

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.

The Changing Landscape of Religious Freedom

This morning we focus on the changing landscape of religious freedom in America and how the church views free speech from the pulpit. As secular culture and political correctness increase pressure on Christians, many churches are opting to ignore important social and political (moral) issues. We address a recent survey by the National Association of Evangelicals that shines some light on the opinions of pastors regarding politics, controversial issues and the church’s role.

In our first segment, Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom joins us to share her insights on how parents can guard children against some of the most deceptive forces today, including the anti-Christian entertainment industry.

Playing with Spiritual Fire

Death has been called the “great door to the unknown”. Since the beginning of time man has wondered if there is life after death; and if so what does that life look like. Of course, God’s Word speaks clearly to the issue. One key section is the ‘resurrection chapter’ where Paul teaches believers about the resurrection of the physical body after death. The other thing is as believers in Christ, we have assurance the world does not have about what happens after we die.

In out first segment, Jay Seegert joins us to discuss the Grand Canyon and the evidence it presents confirming the biblical account of creation.

In our second segment today we cover the story of one Theresa Caputo, the self-proclaimed “Long Island Medium” who was in Green Bay last night. Caputo claims to speak to dead spirits, bringing peace to people who wonder what has happened to their loved ones. We’ll take a look at Caputo’s claims and see what God’s Word has to say about contacting dead spirits.

A Church on the Defensive

Today we look at another Christian survey as well as some disturbing news on just how far many professing churches and leaders have fallen. Some are deceived while others are deceiving people into moral relativism, false teachings, and abandoning the truth of God for the faulty wisdom of man. Christian churches should be affecting secular culture. Instead secular culture seems to be infecting many churches.

Radical Take Down of America: Has The Left Won?

Today, we are going to discuss two evil, influential political philosophies that have shaped the direction of our nation over the past 50-plus years as well as the devastating effects we are seeing from Americans who are (for the most part) unknowingly embracing them.
Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” and The Cloward-Piven Strategy: these two progressive, Marxist philosophies and their implemented agendas have been used together to bring our nation to the precipice of economic and moral destruction. First, a quote from: Rules for Radicals: “In the beginning the organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems.”

Is Public Education Out of Control?

This morning we look at the continuing deterioration of our public education system. We cover stories about kindergarten children being indoctrinated in the LGBT movement, Universities teaching courses on “White privilege,” and a story by Linda Harvey at WND with some concerns about President Trump’s Secretary of Education Betsy Devos, wondering if she has sold out to the LGBT movement.

We also check in with Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom reporting from the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) convention. We’ll discuss Cosmopolitan Magazine’s ‘porn,’ and of course, the Oscars and the fact that many Hollywood celebrities have no idea how out of touch they are with regular Americans.

A Surprise From Hollywood?

This morning we cover a fascinating story from World Net Daily about Hollywood actually planning to release a movie about how a homosexual walked away from the gay lifestyle and became a Christian pastor. And it is not some low grade production with “B List” actors. It stars a couple of prominent actors–one of whom is an open homosexual and activist for the movement.

In our first segment we check in with William Murray of The Religious Freedom Coalition, looking at the plight of Christians in Egypt and Nigeria, along with how Christians are being left behind in the wave of immigration hitting Europe and America.

Ignoring the Demonic in Entertainment and Politics

Seeds planted by the enemy and his followers countless decades ago are now being harvested in American culture and worldwide – and they have produced unimaginable debauchery and destruction. The problem is, too many Christians have chosen to look the other way as immorality spreads like an infectious disease. Pastor Joe Schimmel gives a strong warning to the church.

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.

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?
