Who Wants to be God?

The race is on, just as the Bible foretold.  Various individuals, groups and organizations are speeding ahead trying to convince people that the God of the Bible either doesn’t truly exist, or that He would want us to come together and connect the “Christ consciousness” in each of us so that human beings can create utopia on earth. Today we take a closer look at the “oneness” movement, the age of re-enchantment, earth worship, and the openness to practically anything except biblical Christianity.

Carl Teichrib, who has studied the New Age and the various movements and organizations promoting spiritual unity and “oneness” joins Mike and David to discuss ecumenism, the World Council of Churches, Catholicism and Islam, the UN, Burning Man, and the World Parlament of Religions. Carl also provides insights from his extensive research contained in his latest book Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-Enchantment.

The Truth Will Set Us Free

In John 8:31-32 Jesus says “If you abide in my word, you are my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

In our final segment we look at a report that famous televangelist Benny Hinn has renounced the “prosperity preaching” that , along with his fake healing shows, has marked his life as a public figure.

But first we visit with Mark Eckel of Ratio Christi Ministries and founder of The Comenius Institute, shepherding students and faculty at IUPYI University in Indiana.

More Public Schools Promoting Islam

“We found that the teachers were subjected to two days of Islamic propaganda, where Islam was glorified, Christianity disparaged, and America bashed…”

Over four hundred teachers underwent mandatory training in Michigan recently that exalted Islam but denigrated Christianity, America, and white males. The training leads people to believe Islam is the peaceful, true religion while Christianity is a man-made, inferior, false religion.

Friendship Over Truth?

There’s an old saying, “politics makes strange bedfellows,” but these days professing Christianity, government, and worldliness also seem to be aligning more often, developing very strange partnerships.  We’ve seen so-called “Celebrity pastors” often embrace Hollywood stars or elite sports celebrities who claim to be Christians, but they often do so without a modicum of discernment or wisdom, causing more confusion in a a church that is confused enough already.

In our final segment today we look at a resolution passed by the Democratic Party that applauds “non-religious Americans” while disdaining Christian churchgoers. Our guest today is Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach. He joins Mike and David to discuss how friendship seems to be more important than truth to a growing number of Christian leaders, and how heresy is on the rise in the church itself.

Sexuality as a Gift From God

Sexual intimacy between a man and his wife are a great gift from God. This relationship is a human representation of the deep intimacy Jesus wants with His bride, the church.  When a man and his wife are sexually intimate there is a deep physical, emotional and spiritual bonding that God blesses.

But as Satan often does, he takes something beautiful from God and twists it to deceive people. Today, rampant sexuality has led to destruction and disaster: abortion, broken marriages, divorce, and sexual brokenness and even gender confusion.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins Mike and David to discuss the beauty of biblical sexuality and the snare of sexual sin that has led to dramatic moral decline in our nation.

The Changing Role of a Pastor

Vibrant, bible teaching churches are needed more than ever but are so very hard to come by. We need wisdom, biblical knowledge and understanding of God. We also need to show our nation the dangerous path we are on as a nation and people.  But many churches seem intent on conforming to the ways of this world instead of transforming lives by the power of God’s Word.  At a time when we need clear biblical direction we seem to often be lacking in in a growing number of churches.

It usually starts with leadership – pastors who preach the Word and set the example for the flock.  Our guest, Pastor Randy White, joins us to discuss how pastors are being educated and influenced in today’s Christian Seminaries and Bible Colleges, and why that needs to change if we are going to see a true spiritual
l revival in the church and our nation.

Is God Beginning to Separate the Wheat from the Chaff?

Every time a well-known Christian renounces their faith, we need to remember that God never changes and His Word is still truth! Recently two more prominent believers fell away: Christian Author Joshua Harris, who wrote important books on sexual purity and dating for Christians, and a young leader of Hillsong Music, Marty Harris. Both announced they are no longer Christians.  In our final segments we will look at closer at this pattern of growing apostasy within professing Christianity.

In our first segment, we are joined by Mike Levenhagen of Reclamation Resource Center. He joins us to discuss his journey out of homosexuality by God’s grace, and how we can minister to those suffering with any sinful sexual attraction as well as gender confusion.

Rebecca Kiessling: What it Means to be 100% Pro-Life

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.

Jay Seegert: What on Earth are You Doing?

Tina Marie Griffin: Christian Parents, Please Protect Your Kids!

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.
