The Real Cause Behind the Crisis at Willow Creek

When you are suffering from the flu, feverish with a soar throat and body aches, are these symptoms the cause of the flu or are they the effects of the flu? They are of course the effects of a virus (the true cause) that has invaded your body leading to physical illness and mild suffering. When you treat the cause you get to the root of the problem; but treating effects will not lead to a cure.

Why bring this up? It’s a key to understanding the latest crisis at Willow Creek Church. The sexual assault scandal involving former Pastor Bill Hybels and several women has led to the Elder Board announcing their resignation. A consulting team has been brought in for damage control and a reorganization plan—you know just like secular businesses and corporations do when facing an internal or PR crisis. But is the sexual scandal the cause of Willow Creek’s crisis or the effects? The fallout is an effect – and in segment 2 we will address the true cause.

In the first segment, Mike and David talk with Carl Teichrib about his upcoming book, “Game of Gods” where he did boots on the ground’ research at Burning Man festival. Carl documents the strange, popular movement combining earth worship, pagan rituals, anarchy and spiritual oneness—all under the guise of “radical tolerance.” And while it might be easy to dismiss what you will hear by calling 80,000 followers goofy nuts, could it be part of Satan’s master plan for the world to worship Anti-Christ?

Is Biblical Prophecy Being Ignored in the Church?

An estimated 30-40% of the Word of God deals with prophecy: Prophecy points Old Testament people to the coming of Jesus the Messiah, and indicates how Jesus returns one day to judge all men and establish His everlasting Kingdom. These are the two most significant events the world will ever experience, so why is Bible Prophecy practically ignored or discounted in more and more churches?

Gary Kah of Hope For the World is a student of biblical prophecy and has researched and written about the coming one world government and religion the Bible says will happen just before the return of the Lord. We’ll discuss the dangers of ignoring biblical prophecy along with looking at events in the Middle East that might be signalling the fulfillment of prophecy in our lifetime.

The Prayer of a Red Letter Christian

Have you ever wondered how members of the “Red Letter Christians” pray when they gather together? How do you pray to God when you believe He cares more about social justice and immigration than he does the eternal souls of men? This morning, Mike and David will share the opening prayers cited at the Red Letter Christian “Lynchburg Revival.” See if you can spot anything missing.

Mike and David will also discuss the danger of the #MeToo Movement combining with politics and activism. Abortion is just one of the hot-button issues and the Left thinks nothing of destroying its opponents just to make sure they can go on eliminating the lives of innocent children in the womb.

In our first segment, Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach joins the program as he prepares to attend the Parliament of World Religions in Canada in November.

15 Biblical People You Need to Know

Mike and David welcome back to the program, Pastor Randy White, as he shares some fascinating insights about people in the Bible that we may not be aware of. By the way, the list of 15 people we need to know includes saints, sinners, judges, a prostitute, and the world’s first humanist and advocate for a one world government. Check out the podcast!

Segment 3: In their passion to block another conservative Supreme Court Justice who is pro-life, Senate Democrats brought in a female Methodist Church pastor to testify against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It is understandable that Americans are divided on Supreme Court nominees, but Christians should not be. It is heresy to claim Jesus would support a woman’s right to abort her child because, “Jesus would advocate for a just society that allows people to live their lives to the fullest.” Apparently that advocacy does not apply to the life of the child hanging in the balance in a mother’s womb. And of course her opinion is backed up by twisting the words of Jesus to say something that was not intended at all.

Is Middle East War Knocking on the Door?

When we take our eyes off Israel and the Middle East, we tread on dangerous ground. The Bible tells us the final days before Jesus’ return will find Israel and The Middle East front and center. And a lot is happening there these days that the secular media is choosing to downplay, misrepresent, or ignore completely.

In Ezekiel, God says he will drag Israel’s enemies toward her to set off a great conflict, ushering in the final days. And today we see Russia and China increasing its might and influence in the Middle East. And we see increasingly powerful enemies like Turkey and Iran stirring up trouble against Israel.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World has studied and written about the coming One World Government and religion, and studied biblical prophecy for decades. He joins us this morning for an important update and reminder for Christians to be about the Father’s work in these uncertain times.

Chipping Away At The Foundation Of The Christian Church

The church established by Jesus Christ through the apostles will never be defeated. That church is comprised of committed believers and disciples around the world. But what we have come to call “church” here in America—a place of worship rather than the people who worship—is coming under a variety of attacks from various sources.

Satan is using institutions like media, public education and government to bully and pressure the church into compliance or silence. And he is also using our own personal pride to appeal to our flesh to get us to believe that what we think or feel is on a par with what God says in His Word.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has been a Watchman on the Wall for several decades, warning Christians about the direct and subtle attacks of the enemy against the church. John joins us to day to look at the growing division in our nation and church, and how we can guard our heart and thought process against this deception.

Freedom: It Can Be Taken or Surrendered

We value our freedoms as American citizens, especially the freedom of speech and religious expression. Knowing that the Bible is the basis of our nation’s laws and morality, we also recognize without them we are no better than Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

In our first segment today, we talk with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as well as new studies about the opioid crisis and significantly lower birth rates in Wisconsin.

We live in times where some would like to take our freedoms from us. Globalists and Marxists look for every opportunity to make government god and enslave us to their standards of [im]morality. But we can also be easily deceived into voluntarily giving up our freedoms in the name of “progress.” We also discuss an article from the website “Technocracy” about A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and how it is shaping the future of medical research and treatment. The potential ramifications are chilling. Finally, Canada finds more ways to discriminate against Christians and clamp down on religious freedom.

Looking Behind the Curtain

It is easy to pursue comfort, leisure, luxury and peace in part by living in our own little bubbles, impervious to all that is happening around us. Newsflash: the nation as well as the church in America are divided. Biblical illiteracy is rampant and true history has been rewritten, but on the surface things are good for most Americans.

Aside from the national debt, the economy is generally stable with historically low unemployment and increasing jobs every month. But under the surface things are volatile and becoming more contentious by the day. Because political disagreement has been replaced with vicious hate and personal attacks, many fear our nation may be on the brink of a second civil war. The Far Left is committed to globalism and are beside themselves as President Trump continues to push his “America First” platform which includes appointing pro-life judges that might threaten the legal murder of innocent children.

Behind the scenes, elites and the establishment continue to work on the foundation of a one world government where God is dismissed and mankind elevates itself. Today we discuss the Deep State, transhumanism, end times prophecy, and a recent survey showing over 60 percent of 18-36 year-old Americans favor socialism; much higher than previous polls.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World has researched and written about the coming one world government for thirty years and joins us this morning to take a look behind the curtain at the systematic move to globalism.

QUESTIONS: Spiritual Gifts, Obstructing Trump, Gender Confusion, Social Justice, more!

So many comments and questions and comments and so little time! Every Friday, we talk about what our listeners want to talk about – and we love it. It’s great to know what’s on your heart. We do our best to discern truth from error and apply the wisdom available to us from God to current events and cultural debates. Here are some of the topics you want to discuss this week:

Church discipline, globalism, social justice
How far will the left go to obstruct Trump and his Supreme Court nomination?
Is God still sparing America to a degree?
Are Catholics who claim to be pro-life and vote Democrat being hypocritical?
Normalizing transgender individuals, gender confusion
How can new believers grow up and mature in the grace and knowledge of Christ?
Has liberalism become mainstream in many churches?
What caused regional church division in 2010 when Jim Wallis spoke at Lifest on the main stage?
Is there one deception you think is the most dangerous?

Celebrating Our Independence

Millions of Americans will take a day off from work tomorrow to gather with family and friends; to cook out, relax and attend fireworks displays. Let’s not forget millions of others have given their lives over the past two hundred and forty-two years so that we might enjoy the blessings of freedom in a Republic once established under God. Most importantly, remember to take the time to thank our Creator for the freedoms we enjoy under the Constitution that was established.

Sadly however, this time of celebration is tempered by real threats to our freedom of speech as we see hateful rhetoric ramping up due in part to liberal activists and radicals who hate Christ, the truth, and what America represents.

Elijah Abraham has lived in Iraq under an oppressive dictatorship. He is well aware of the threats posed to our freedoms by our own government, media, universities, celebrities, and hired protestors as well as radicalized Muslims. Progressives are pushing their globalist agenda including banning expressions of the Christian faith, strict gun control, and open borders. Elijah joins us to help us understand the delicate balance of freedom and responsibility – not only as Americans, but as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Risking Your Life and Family for the Gospel

Have you ever thought about how you would react if suddenly you or your family were threatened, demanding you to deny your allegiance to Jesus Christ? And if you’re thinking to yourself, “I would never do that, no matter what,” remember the Apostle Peter said the same thing – and then cowered.

Today, Mike and David talk with a man who was confronted with that horror. Bishop Pervaiz Joseph, a Christian leader from Pakistan who had a good relationship with government leaders there. He was able to share the gospel freely until he was falsely accused of a crime, kidnapped, tortured, and his family was forced to flee to Sri Lanka and eventually to the U.S. His story became known by Voice of the Martyrs.

He started Bishop Joseph Ministries International in December 2016, a non-profit organization, working with people around the globe uplifting communities and spreading a message of Hope, Peace and Love. Joseph, along with his family moved to the United States of America after facing religious persecution in his homeland and stayed in exile for a little over four years. They now run a local Church in affiliation with the Foursquare Missions and connect, build and uplift communities around the world by organizing mission trips, conferences and seminars within various states and worldwide.

In our final segment, we look at a chilling commentary on how youth are being brainwashed and indoctrinated into socialism and atheism by social media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Is There Really a Shadow Government in Our Nation?

There will always be conspiracy theories in every day life. Back in the 1960s there was talk of a “shadow government” that really set the agenda and pulled the strings of government officials, doing the bidding of power hungry globalists. These theories were widely dismissed.

But is the ‘Shadow Government” a reality, and if so, what would it mean for Christians in America? Could it threaten our freedom to worship God and share His Word? Could it one day force us to worship government instead of God, like in Marxist nations?

Author and Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to share his research and thoughts. We will also discuss the strange journey of Pastor Andy Stanley, who has said increasingly provocative things about the Bible over the past couple years. Has Stanley left the camp of solid Evangelical Christianity?

Why Don’t We Share the Gospel More Frequently?

Jesus said, “If you love me you will obey all I command (John 14:15).” His final command was for His followers to share the gospel and make disciples. With few exceptions, most of us only talk about God when it is convenient or we ‘feel led’ to do so. Why are Christians in America not more passionate about sharing the good news with those who are perishing?

Is it shyness? A desire to please man rather than God? Not wanting to offend others? Not wanting to be seen as judgmental? Are we just too busy? Or could the deeper reason be that we are afraid of the repercussions like we see happening to our Brothers and Sisters in China, India and around the world?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss our reasons for not sharing the gospel and how we can overcome our hesitancy and inconsistency.

The War on Truth, Facts and Reason

Truth only comes from God because He knows all things past, present and future, and according to His Word He is incapable of lying.  And if our pursuit of truth has any genesis but God we can easily be deceived.  Today we cover three stories about how facts, reality, and truth is being subjected to man’s opinions and agenda.

We look at the agenda behind the last minute attacks by liberals on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, reiterating our ongoing concerns about movements like “MeToo” being taken too far and used as political weapons to silence opponents of the Liberal Movement.

Then we turn our attention to the professing Christian Church in America, where it seems truth is becoming a more frequent casualty of eloquent, ear-ticking mega-church pastors with their own agenda.  In his apparent quest to create doubt about God’s Word, you will never guess the next attack on the Old Testament being engineered by Andy Stanley.  It seems Stanley is leading to rewriting the gospel to say something like “Jesus loves you and you are going to heaven so forget about anything God said in the Old Testament…Jesus replaced all the laws.”

Questions and Comments from Listeners

Rather than list many of the questions and comments this week, let’s sum them up this way:

Comments and questions discussed on today’s podcast include an overwhelming response to the current Willow Creek Church/Bill Hybels scandal. Over all listeners who sent in questions or comments on the issue, over 90% are opposed to the Willow Creek Association and Global Leadership Summit, and many have addressed their concerns with their pastor.

Some have already left their churches if it continued to be a part of the Willow Creek Association, while others plan to ask their pastor about it to see how they justify partnering with an organization having so many unbiblical approaches and teachings. In our experience, when confronted about WC, most church leaders double down and refuse to acknowledge the problems.

A few listeners mentioned politics and the fiasco the Senate hearings have become regarding Supreme Court nominee, Bret Kavanaugh. Someone also brought up the difference between being a Christian and a conservative which are often used interchangeably. 

Another Christian couple wants to know how to strike a healthy, biblical balance in the home as campaign season is already upon us. One spouse is more active politically wanting to be salt and light in culture and the other just wants to pray and vote as God leads without getting immersed or frustrated with the political process.

The others we had time for today mentioned the importance of believers knowing and appreciating the Old Testament. Also, a new believer who asked about the parable of the Sower in Mark chapter 4 and does it refute the “once saved always saved” doctrine.
