Social Media Big Guns Silencing Christians

Satan is the perfect liar. He has mastered his art of deception over thousands of years and he can present something to us that looks “good” when in reality it is his instrument for enslaving us once man abuses it. In the final segments today, Mike and David look at how the Internet, presented in the 1990s as man’s gateway to knowledge and communication, is slowly becoming a system of intimidation against anyone who dares to live by or proclaim Christians values. Are we willingly walking into slavery through our obsession with social media?

In the first segment, Mike and David look at how radical leftists twist information and opinions to advance their godless agenda. Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council joins us to discuss how the radical left is now blaming Christians for the crisis in adoption, when, in reality, we are a solution to the crisis.

Is Israel Being Set Up for Invasion?

The Bible teaches that Israel will be invaded one day and many will lose their lives as Satan makes one final effort to discredit God’s promises to His chosen people. Most of the world will probably support this invasion because they are being deceived into thinking Israel is the problem or even the evil bully while her neighboring Muslim nations are victims of Israeli “oppression.”

Gary Kah of Hope for the World just returned from a trip to Israel, during which thousands of rockets were shot into Israel by the Palestinians and our secular media ignored it. Why is it when these attacks happen, all we ever see on the “news” is when Israel retaliates to protect itself? They show pictures of children caught up in the violence and try to convince us Israel wants to kill innocent women and children. We also talk with Gary about events around the world that point to a coming one world government—Globalism—and the sinister plans of Globalist Politicians in our own nation to undermine President Trump’s Nationalist agenda.

The Illusion of Radical Liberalism

One of the most sinister things a person can do is to brainwash someone into thinking they are in a crisis and that the only way to get out of it is to buy what they are selling, when in reality what they are “selling” actually brings the crisis to fruition. That is exactly the hoax being perpetuated on America and the Christian church by radicals and progressives. Create a crisis and then offer a solution that actually brings the crisis about. John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio really understands the liberal mindset and joins us to talk about this hoax.

Order vs. Chaos

God is a god of order. Satan is a master of chaos and the prince of this world. Christians are called to be light and salt to the world. How do we as disciples of Jesus Christ navigate this life in an orderly, biblical fashion when the world thrives on chaos and confusion? Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss this challenging dilemma.

Opposing Perspectives on Iran, Government

While most of the international intrigue has been over North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear capabilities to attack America, something very interesting is happening in Iran. The radical Muslim nation under the grips of the powerful Ayatollahs has imprisoned and killed Christians, homosexuals and anyone opposing them. But now the people of Iran are rising up in opposition and this isn’t the first time. Under President Obama the U.S. said nothing against the brutal regime in Iran because the president wanted his precious “nuclear treaty” with Iran – a treaty that has proven to be another example of naive thinking and failed foreign policy.

But now President Trump is supporting the uprising to overthrow a brutal Islamic regime and the liberal press is blasting him. We look at a couple of articles and perspectives on this simmering world-stage issue.

In our first segment we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to look at the difference between state and federal government process, as well as pending legislation that would address “non-discrimination” ordinances being passed in Wisconsin that threaten religious conscience and liberty.

Eight Areas of Interest to Christians in 2018

Israel, America, Trump, ISIS, media bias, Planned Parenthood, Hollywood, technology, transgenderism, “tolerance,” and a lukewarm Christian church. Overall, 2017 was a faith-testing year for many of us. Good will continue being called evil and truth will continue to be attacked and redefined. If America stays on its current course down this destructive road where there is no longer objective truth or fixed standards of morality, we’re in big trouble. BUT GOD…

We don’t need to be news junkies, but we should be informed and knowledgeable so we can watch, pray, and be ready for whatever the Lord will bring in 2018. In no particular order, here are some key subjects to consider…

Christians’ Diverse Views on Morality, Friday Q&A

Absolutely no subject is off limits! On today’s show we answer your questions and read your comments from the week on any topic you want to discuss.

But first we take a look at the mounting chaos and confusion in our nation and ask if our nation is on the verge of a total meltdown of morality and common sense. Our self-proclaimed “One Nation Under God” has become anything but that as radical liberal forces continue to sew seeds of confusion and discontent, and our public schools continue to indoctrinate our children into godless humanism.

The Push for Globalism, Division by Design

As the Bible warns us, the world continues to become a more dangerous and evil place.  The love of many grows colder, men are self-serving, evil is seen as good, God is hated, there are natural disasters, economic concerns, as well as wars and rumors of war.  But the good news has always been this life is a vapor compared to eternity, and God is sovereign – in control and on His throne. No scheme of Satan or man will foil His plans.

In the midst of growing cultural and political chaos in America and worldwide, prophecy will be fulfilled and God has a plan for His people: speak the truth and share the gospel with the lost, making disciples of all nations. 

Our guest this morning is Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministries.  Gary is a worldview expert and has done extensive research over several decades concerning the progressing globalism and the establishment of a one world religion.  But Gary also reminds us that in the midst of all that is going on we can trust in God’s Word, and that the best thing we can do as believers to combat evil is to share the gospel and hope of Jesus Christ as we strive to overcome evil with good.

When Objectivity Sells out to Blatant Bias

Media has historically been referred to as the “fourth leg of our republic” because of its ability and past willingness to accurately report news and uncover hidden agendas within government. But what happens when the media decides to drive its own agenda instead of reporting news? The abortion worldview is one that is defended and promoted via most media outlets either directly or indirectly. Many feel we are seeing the results: a hard left turn toward progressive ideology and socialism in our nation.

Joining us to discuss bias and agendas within the media is Katie Yoder, Associate Culture Editor of Media Research Center. Has responsible journalism permanently left the building within mainstream media? Yes.

Separating Fact from Fiction with Climate Change

Young people today are very passionate about the subject of climate change. And more often than not they are being indoctrinated with emotional, fear-driven arguments about mankind destroying the planet because of our “carbon footprint.” We should acknowledge and applaud their concern about being good stewards of God’s earth, but how can we help separate fiction from fact? Dr. Cal Beisner of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation joins us this morning.

We also look at a concerning report that North Korea, led by a man who is undeniably a maniac, now has the full capability to strike the U.S. with a nuclear weapon. Oh, and by the way, it could take less than 40 minutes for a launch from North Korea to strike the heartland of America, and while the U.S. has a missile defense system, it is apparently only reliable about half of the time. How should we respond as Christians to today’s headlines?

Is a True Believer’s Salvation Eternally Secure?

A couple weeks ago we interviewed Pastor Mike Abendroth on the doctrine of eternal security of the true believer through faith in Jesus Christ.  Some listeners have written claiming our belief is wrong and that the belief in the eternal security of the believer is wrong and dangerous. So today Pastor Abendroth joins us again to address those concerns on this very important doctrine.

We will also talk with Mike about sincere questions unbelievers have about God and The Bible and how the Church has a responsibility to answer their sincere questions honestly, because if we cannot they will find the wrong answers in the world.

Keeping an Eye on Israel, Prophecy

As our nation continues to be distracted by media spin, alleged Russian collusion, politics, social issues, holidays, and the daily drama of the Stock Market, many are ignoring events in Israel and the Middle East that may be pointing to the continuing fulfillment of biblical prophecy. While it is currently in rebellion against God because of rejecting Jesus as Messiah, Israel is nonetheless very important to God and His final plans for this world are centered on Israel…and a lot is going on there that most are ignoring.

Pastor and bestselling author, Carl Gallups, a student and teacher of biblical prophecy, joins us to share details on interesting news many are ignoring about Israel.

In our final segment, you’ll never guess who Democrats and Humanists in Massachusetts are blaming for all the world’s problems from racism to climate change. We look at the continuing campaign to silence the Christian worldview in the public venue.

Questions, Comments, and Biblical Answers

Questions and comments from listeners today include:

Is it wrong that I don’t tithe to my church but instead support Christians organizations and ministries that are spreading the gospel and equipping believers? My pastor said this is wrong, but my church is not making disciples.
Are Word Faith or prosperity preachers crooks for making promises that God will bless people financially if they give money to them?
As believers, can we sanctify ourselves?
I am a former Muslim and appreciate the grace you exhibit in reminding people not all Muslims are terrorists in waiting.
Listening from Alberta Canada, we attend a large church that is biblical and has good leadership. But groups are growing within our church following a lot of Bethel propaganda believing everyone should speak in tongues and prophesy. Some claim those who do not aren’t filled with the Spirit. What can I say to my friends about this?
Regarding the Mark of the Beast, I have friends who claim that when a person allows an electric device to be installed, even a pacemaker or does electronic banking, it’s wrong. Aren’t they overreacting?
Is Hebrews 6 referring to those who were not saved to begin with or those who lost their salvation?
Israel is a free republic like America, but aren’t the two nations spiritually “un-Christian” considering only a small remnant are true, converted believers in Jesus Christ?
Love the show on creation and evolution with Jay Seegert (December 5). Too many debates about creation focus on science rather than Scripture and end up veering away from the fact of a literal six-day creation and the age of the earth being thousands of years old, not millions.

Feelings and Opinions Vs Beliefs and Truth

Feelings, opinions, beliefs and truth are parts of the thought process that leads to our ultimate actions and behaviors. But the order in which they form our complex thought and subsequent action makes all the difference in the world. If we get them in the wrong order we can start down a slippery slope where our beliefs and actions contradict what God says in His Word, and nothing good will come out of that. But if we align them correctly according to the teachings of the Bible, we can lead a life of joy, victory in Christ, and the peace of God.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss how to correctly line up these elements comprising our human thought process, and the dangers of incorrectly prioritizing them.

Did God Use Evolution as His Process of Creation?

The number of Christians who trust the authority of the Bible and are truly taking a stand for what they believe is rapidly decreasing. Many churches that were once stalwarts for the faith have slowly compromised, moving into obscurity, becoming either irrelevant, or in some cases actually hostile to the Bible. This doesn’t happen overnight, but rather through deception and sometimes subtle teachings that gradually erode their views on the authority and sufficiency of Scripture.

One of these slippery slopes is related to the origins account found in the book of Genesis. There’s a view that has been around for quite a long time, but has recently made a resurgence within evangelical circles. This is the idea that perhaps God didn’t actually do things as literally and simply stated in Genesis 1-2, but used more of a “natural” vs “supernatural” process (tenets of Darwinian evolution). Sadly, this is becoming increasingly popular not only in churches, but also in Christian seminaries, colleges and universities.

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins the program to discuss some unbiblical ideas being considered in some Christian circles.
