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?

An Unclear Battle Cry from Church Leadership

Make no mistake: as Christians we are at war with this world. No, we do not use the world’s weapons or tactics, but Paul says in 2 Corinthians 10 that we have divine (spiritual) weapons able to to destroy arguments and lofty opinions of this world that are opposed to God and truth.

But many are wondering why a growing number of church leaders are not calling and equipping believers to fight this crucial spiritual battle for the eternal souls of our friends and neighbors. Where are the leaders rallying, challenging, and equipping Christians for this battle? We seem intent on looking more and more like the world we are supposed to win to Christ.

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to talk about the crucial need for church and family leadership in these days of growing confusion and evil.

American Christianity’s Slide Into Apostasy

This morning, Crash Connell interviews Mike about his latest powerful and provocative book challenging the direction of a growing number of churches in our nation. Mike discusses the demarcation forming between Biblical Christian Churches and “American Christianity” churches and how a growing number of churches and denominations are transforming churches toward secular culture, leading many into a false sense of eternal security.

You can pre-order Mike’s new book at biblicalanswerguy.com or at Amazon. It is a powerful, provocative book that will lead you to an honest self-assessment of your life as a professing believer and discover if the church you belong to is conforming to the world or the Word of God.

Deeper Faith, Honest Questions, Sharing the Gospel

Two fantastic guests on the program means #doubletruththursday. Is that a thing? Anyway…

Today, Mike and David welcome first-time guest, evangelist, Willie Herath of Ratio Christi in southern California and we discuss apologetics, deeper questions in the faith, and how to effectively respond to nonbelievers. How important is it for us to be ready to respond when people have questions or have objections to Christianity. We often find out that they really did not know much about the evidence for the Christian faith and the Bible.

We also talk with radio host, Mike Zander, from Utah’s Key Radio where he reaches out to Mormons in Utah with the gospel. He’s in town today and in-studio with Mike LeMay and David Fiorazo.

Are We Turning Toward or Away From God?

Mike and David look at a challenging article by Shane Idelman admonishing the Church to start living and acting like the Church instead of caving to the pressure and beliefs of secular society. And — breaking news — in case you haven’t heard: 

The church is not a building or a denomination… You and I as believers are the Church!

The sad reality is that Jesus warned that many who think they are saved and going to heaven are instead headed to eternal hell. Paul tells us to continually test ourselves to prove that we are truly in the faith and have not fooled ourselves. The committed follower of Jesus Christ is willing to do this on a continual basis; the professing Christian who has fooled themselves never thinks twice about it. They have been lulled into a false sense of eternal security by the father of lies and a professing “church” that is afraid to offend people by teaching about sin, repentance and the pursuit of holiness. Together today we will examine ourselves.

In our first segment, we talk Biblical apologetics with Aaron Marshall of Ratio Christi Ministries.

Time for the Church to Turn Back to God

The world is what it always will be: Full of people who love self and power and despise God and His Word. Christians are called to stand out as a peculiar people full of eternal hope in Jesus Christ and sharing that hope with lost people. But many fear that as the “church” has sought compromise and common ground with the world that she has lost her moral standing and actually is contributing to the growing evil in society instead of opposing it and offering a solution.

It’s time to turn back to God with repentant hearts, asking His forgiveness for squandering our calling as light in this dark world. But do we as professing Christians, along with those who lead us, have the humility and strength to get on our knees and repent before God for our failures? Or will we continue to look more and more like this world Jesus said we were to hate and that would hate us?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer, travels the world teaching the Word of God and equipping Christians in persecuted nations to share the gospel in the midst of danger. Elijah joins us to look at the tepid condition of American Christianity and what we must do before it’s too late.
