Anyone can do good deeds. You don’t have to be a Christian to have good works in life. But we do need the Holy Spirit to bear good fruit. What’s the difference? Spiritual fruit. John chapter 15 is about believers abiding in the Vine in order to bear good, lasting fruit that glorifies God.
Also, what’s the difference between quenching the Spirit and grieving the Spirit.? We’ll discuss this today, as well as how a Christian is to be continually yielded to the Lord in order to be “filled with the Spirit.”Read More
Recognizing the fact many hurting and lost people were uncomfortable going to a church, a local outreach seemed to be the answer for drug dealers, strippers, prostitutes, addicts, and former prison inmates who felt outcast in society and unwelcome in traditional churches.Read More
People often ask fair questions about faith, God, the Bible, or about truth. Today’s youth are no different. Can you really know God, does absolute truth exist, if God is love why is there evil, do Christians live by blind faith? And many other honest questions.
But there’s a problem. Too often, believers in Christ do not have good, thoughtful answers for them. Are we equipped to answer these questions let alone help today’s young people for the spiritual and cultural battles they face every day?Read More
Do we understand the true history of Islam? At the turn of the 8th century, the Middle East was 95% Christian. Today, it is less than 6% Christian. WHAT HAPPENED? Muslims are now being elected to the U.S. Congress. Many were appointed by the Obama administration. What about freedom of religion – is it for all faiths? What about the U.S. Constitution? Is America’s system of government compatible with Sharia Law? Hear the “Radical Truth” on today’s podcast with Tony Gurule.Read More
Why so many religions and denominations? Nearly one in five people worldwide identify with the Roman Catholic Church. Many are serious practitioners while others have no idea what their church’s teachings include. But it is a very popular religion that feeds the need many people have to rely on good works. The problem is they miss the importance of the authority of Scripture, the true gospel, and justification by faith. Today’s guest is author and evangelist, Mike Gendron.Read More
“Please, pastor, tell me what I want to hear. Make me feel good. No hard truths, no tough topics, just love and grace and encouragement. Don’t get too deep. I just want to enjoy my life and not to be challenged in my faith.” Sound extreme? People may not admit it, but we might be surprised how common this attitude is among churchgoers in America.
Today’s guest is evangelist, pastor/teacher, and former Muslim, Elijah Abraham.Read More
The Bible teaches us that in the final years before our Lord’s return there would be a large, destructive war against Israel by her enemies. Could we be witnessing the stage being set for the final chapter of Earth’s history before the Lord Himself returns to judge mankind and establish his everlasting kingdom?
Gary Kah of Hope for the World joins Mike to discuss the events that seem to be pushing the world one step closer to the return of our Lord and Savior?Read More
There can be no doubt the rules of cultural engagement for Christians is changing rapidly – especially as we attempt to share our faith and live our lives. Just the mere mention of the Bible or the word “Christian” conjures up accusations of being an intolerant bigot, homophobe, and hater.
What do we do as Christian witnesses who are instructed to be salt and light in the world?
Today Mike and David take a comprehensive look at the controversy surrounding New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees who is being criticized from all angles over his recent support of the national campaign, “Bring Your Bible to School Day” (Oct. 3). Brees also responded to the criticism he received from cultural bullies and LGBTQ advocates as well as the Christian Community.Read More
Change is sometimes abrupt and immediate, but more often it is comprised of a slow erosion over time as little by little truth is replaced with opinions and emotions. The serious decline of Christianity in America is the result of decades of subtle changes in what has been and is currently being taught in public education, what is presented in media, and from pulpits that often seem more interested in placating culture instead of speaking God’s truth and shining the light of Christ truth into it.Read More
God is righteous, just and holy. He gets angry and will one day pour out His wrath upon a fallen, sinful world and many will perish. But He is also loving and kind; patient and long suffering; He is merciful and offers His grace to those who believe in Jesus Christ.
Our human level of thinking and understanding cannot readily reconcile these attributes—they often seem contradictory to us. Dave Wager joins Mike and Crash to discuss God’s attributes as we look at the Book of Nahum.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
