Why Christianity is Failing in America

It’s important we look at a recent study that discusses the many ways professing Christianity is not only failing our nation, but many who attend church services every week. As the professing church continues to conform and compromise with the world Jesus told us we are to hate, a growing number of churches sacrifice the pursuit of holiness for entertainment and secular growth programs.

Mike and David touch on this dangerous path a growing number of churches and denominations are currently on – leading people away from God rather than drawing them nearer to Him and equipping the saints for ministry. Just as disappointing, we will address recent comments from Pope Francis’ January 1 “Mary Mother of God” Mass, including “we can do no better than to put our hands in hers and to acknowledge her as our life.”

In our first segment, Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council shares a tragic decision by the State of Wisconsin to provide “gender reassignment” coverage for people under state Medicaid.

The Future of Christianity in America

2019 will bring powerful and unique challenges and opportunities for the Christian Church in America. Satan’s battle against the Church will intensify as he acquires more and more allies to join him in his plan to neutralize the Church by making it look more like the secular culture it is supposed to resist and oppose.

We start this new year by looking at the prophetic signs of 2018 that might be pointing to the return of the Lord, along with the increased persecution of true believers around the world. Is this persecution a preview of the life coming for true believers in America?

Standing Up to Bullying and Intimidation

Rarely does outright persecution just happen out of the blue. It usually seeps in gradually, starting with free people not being diligent and thinking the persecution of another individual or institution is none of their concern. Once the proponents of persecution see that we lack the courage to stand up for others they naturally assume we will lack the backbone to stand up for ourselves, and they begin to pick away at our freedoms, breaking down our resistance.

In every institution in our nation we are seeing Bible-believing Christians marginalized and attacked. From education to media to government itself, witnessed by the unconstitutional ordinance the City of De Pere tried to impose on local churches, the enemy is testing our will and commitment to God. Sadly, as I personally witnessed here in De Pere, there are some churches that decide to sit the battle out letting the other 5 brave churches who stood with us do all the fighting. This morning, we look at the expanding attack against the religious freedoms and conscience of Christians in America.

In our first segment, we are joined by Laurie Stewart, President of “Women in Apologetics”. We look at the crucial role Christian women play in teaching other women and our children correct biblical apologetics.

When Human Emotions Are Held Higher Than God’s Word

Our human emotions are based on circumstances, prejudices, and programming. The heart is sick and emotions can lie to us. But God never changes and is incapable of lying. So when our human emotions conflict with God’s Word it is clear that the truly born-again believer should trust in God’s Word no matter what the world is trying to sell us. But the exact opposite is happening in our society and even in a growing number of churches. Logic and rational thought based on God’s Word is being replaced with humanistic ideals and emotional over-reactions to important issues.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio joins us for a discussion on the dangers to the church and our nation when irrational emotion becomes the bellwether for right and wrong instead of God’s Word.

A Victory for Religious Freedom

On December 14, 2018, the Court strongly reiterated that Wisconsin Law provides strong protections from a church or non-profit religious organization being considered a “place of public accommodation”. This was a crucial ruling for several reasons.

The Dr. Duke Show, Religious Freedom, and Radicals in Academia

Dr Duke Show hosts, Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project join us today for some almost unbelievable education updates. You’re not going to believe what is actually happening on college campuses and in public school classrooms in America. Some in the LGBTQ community are now openly admitting their goal is to “groom young children.” Their agenda has moved on from diversity to inclusion. We discuss what they mean by “inclusion.”

We look at recent news stories showing how government-run education is repressing Christian thought and expression.

We also explain the good news from Friday that a judge struck down De Pere’s extremely broad, non-discrimination ordinance. Judge William Atkinsion upheld our challenge and struck down the ordinance calling it unconstitutional, ruling in favor of Christian ministries and religious freedom.

So praise God! Our legal challenge to the City of De Pere’s “non-discrimination” ordinance was successful.

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.

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 Obsession With Finding Extraterrestrial Life

The U.S. spend billions of dollars every year on space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life. Hollywood produces and people watch film after film suggesting we are not alone in the universe. There’s something fascinating about the unknown. But scientists, a majority of whom are atheists, hoping to validate their theory of life on other planets, need only look to God’s Word.

Jay Seegert of the Starting Point Project is today’s guest, here to discuss our obsession with alien life, and how we answer skeptics who use this argument: “If God created man then who created God?”

In our final segment, Mike and David look at backlash a Christian Church in Canada is receiving for exercising biblical church discipline on a member who has admitted she is a lesbian.

Debating the Critical Issues of Our Time

Our nation is at a serious crossroad with some big decisions to make. Politically, the gulf between Conservative and Liberal has grown big, nasty and probably no longer reconcilable, meaning compromise is probably a thing of the past. With studies showing a large percentage of younger people viewing Socialism favorably, our nation will most likely continue to be fundamentally transformed to the far left, just as former President Obama promised. Morally, socially, and economically our nation is starting to look radically different than fifty or a hundred years ago.

Too many Christian Churches in America seem more willing to embrace secular culture instead of fighting against immorality. Along with a leftist media, education system, and entertainment industry, government is now starting to badger and intimidate Christians into silence. Because of this, we might expect a coming major schism within American churches being divided into two camps: Those faithful to God and His Word and those who submit to “Caesar” to maintain his favor and protection.

Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss the top five debates we face economically, politically and spiritually in this nation. The conclusions could define our future.

Will America Experience Another Civil War?

In our final segments we cover a story of a Christian pastor who kicked a person dressed in drag out of his church in the middle of the service, and the backlash he is receiving on social media.

In our lead story we look at the political polarization of America, which has never been greater. In the past both parties agreed on what needed to be done while sometimes disagreeing on how to implement the vision, but today the gulf of ideas between Conservative and Liberal values is so great many feel they are irreconcilable. Some believe we are headed toward another Civil War.

We look at an article by Selwyn Duke of “The American Thinker” that paints a grim picture, giving evidence and warning to a coming political Civil War that will change America permanently. If our nation is indeed headed to a Civil War between Conservative and Liberal ideas what will be the outcome and how will it affect Christianity in America?

Listener’s Show: Your Questions and Comments

Here are some of the questions and comments from this past week:

The large company I am applying for proudly supports the LGBTQ agenda and contributes to related causes. I was excited about the opportunity before I learned this, but now am conflicted. What do you think?
My daughter just told me she is bisexual and I’m in shock. She grew up in church, went to a private Christian school and attends a Christian college. What angers me is the church generally accepts LGBTQ lifestyles now.
Please clarify a Scripture you shared on a recent podcast, 1 John 4:3 about spirits that deny Jesus came in the flesh and are not of God.
You said American Christianity is looking more like Babylon these days than the church Jesus shed His blood to redeem. I sense this as well but could you expound on it please?
Here in Canada, we don’t have anything like your show and the sell-out by the church to government has already happened. Please continue warning Americans!
My husband and I are heartbroken. Our 12 year-old son just announced he is really a woman. We’re completely caught off guard and don’t even know how to confront this.

The Difficulty in Finding a Biblical Church

There are still some sound biblical Christian churches in America; a “remnant,” to be sure. But a growing number look more and more like the world than they do an assembly of God’s called-out people. A difficulty arises when you have been a member of a historically sound church, but it has been in the midst of a transformation where it is adopting the beliefs and values of this fallen world. This gradual shift is often so subtle that you cannot see the drift away from God and toward secular humanism.

Pastor Randy White has studied this trend and joins us to discuss how this drift of the church away from God has transpired, how we can spot it, and how to find a biblical church in a sea of growing heresy and apostasy.

What Happened to My Church?

Many Christians in America are asking that question these days as we see a growing number of churches change. The Gospel of reconciliation being replaced with consumerism and our “best life now”; moves of the Holy Spirit being replaced with emotional manipulation through loud music and fog machines; and churches that look more and more like the world Jesus told us would hate us and that we should hate.

But the changes introduced into American Christianity have been so subtle that many people do not even notice them until one day we suddenly feel like a stranger and alien in the very church we attended for years.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and Understanding the Times Radio joins us to talk about the growing concerns of serious Christians about what they see happening in many of our churches these days.

The Dangers of Masculinity

The American Psychological Association recently released a study calling out what it perceives as the dangers of traditional masculinity warning that it leads men to hating women and LGBTQ people. As men are “marketed” to by corporate America we see confusing messages on what it means to be a man these days.

Are we to be the strong, silent, rugged, macho guy? Or the sensitive, nurturing, submissive guy who sits back quietly and just accepts things the way they are?

If we listen to the world we will be continually confused about what it means to be a man. But not surprisingly God’s Word has a lot to say about what real men are.

This morning, Mike discusses this issue with Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute. What does it mean to be a man of God in today’s world?

We also look at an interesting perspective from a Christian musician who says that youth these days are being conditioned to worship their own self-image, and since the world is sending wrong messages to our youth about what their image should look like it is leading to dire consequences for an entire generation.

The Feminizing of American Christianity

God created men and women equal but uniquely different. In His master plan, men are to be strong and loving leaders and wives are to respectfully submit to their husband’s leadership. The Christian church in America needs real godly men, but at the time when they are needed most many are confused about what it means to be a true man of God. The world and its institutions that hate God have successfully minimized and redefined manhood, reducing many men to confused, quivering bowls of jelly instead of principled, strong leaders for the church and their families. And some believe that church leadership is also responsible for accommodating this feminizing of Christian men because they are not teaching us what it means to be Godly leaders of wives, families, and communities.

Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to discuss how society’s emasculation of men is infecting American Christianity, leading to dire consequences.
