Perspective Check: Persecution, Religious Freedom, and Christ Before Color

Even though there’s plenty of chaos, division, and civil unrest, we are reminded here in America how blessed this country has been through history as we look at Nigeria and harsh persecution of Christians going on there continually. We get a perspective check in segment 1. We also look at the news and how the city of Seattle has been invaded by anarchists and radicals – and there is much public pressure to conform to the left and blindly follow the activists. We discuss why this is wrong.

Steven Bancarz: New Age Influence in Christian Churches

All across North America, Christian churches have unknowingly encouraged occult beliefs and practices far removed from what the Bible teaches. This unfortunate reality is intrinsically linked to the popularity increase of New Age spirituality in the twenty-first century, and we’ve been so influenced by its integration into our society that we have become blind to recognizing, and preventing, the effects of this mainstream, pop-culture heresy, even within the walls of God’s house.

Today’s guest is former New Ager, Steven Bancarz, founder of the apologetics website, Reasons for Jesus, and co-author of the best-selling book The Second Coming of the New Age.

Cameron Buettel: Discernment, Biblical Context, and Coronavirus Concerns

A.W. Tozer stated, “Worship is no longer worship when it reflects the culture around us more than the Christ within us.” What is happening in too many American churches is we have become seeker-sensitive, conformed to the world, and watered-down not only the hard truths of Scripture but the gospel itself. The whole country suffers when the church is weak and less effective.

On today’s podcast we discuss Christian maturity and church discernment issues.

Jeff Solwold: Kobe Bryant, Eternal Perspective, Spiritual Disciplines

Someone once said that ten out of ten people die, but we all live forever. The difference is eternal destinations. Yesterday’s news of the tragic death of basketball superstar, Kobe Bryant, shocked millions as it often does when someone famous dies. It reminds me of Psalm 90:12, a request for God to “teach us to number our days that we might gain a heart of wisdom.”

Everybody dies, so why don’t we seem to believe it deep down? If we did, perhaps we would live differently. As Christians, we should make the most of our time here and live with eternity in view! What are some good ways to cultivate an eternal perspective and maintain healthy spiritual disciplines?

Pastor Landon Churchill: True Revival Starts with Us

Most of us recognize the increase of moral relativism goes hand in hand with the decline of Christianity in America. Repentance and revival are needed today more than anytime in our history! But how much time do we have? Revival starts with you and me – in our hearts. But first of all, if you are not a Christian, you can’t even be revived because you must first be “vived” or made alive in Christ.

Juan Valdez: Faith in the Midst of Covid Chaos, Lies

We discuss the many different reactions Christians have to the Chinese coronavirus and government ordinances, restrictions. We also address how the lack of true American history being taught to kids today had led to this cultural moment with so many young people thinking the country is and was always a bad one.
