Today we read your comments from the week and answer your questions, always going to the Word of God for eternal truth and biblical perspective. We open the podcast today with Mike giving a brief report on his experience this week at the National Religious Broadcasters convention in Anaheim, CA. He spoke there about the threats against biblical Christianity from government and media.The topics include the House bill HR5, social justice, Replacement Theology, what exactly is the purpose of what we call “church”? We also touch on mindfulness promoted in government schools, how to confront a back-slidden spouse, psychology creeping into churches, as well as the good and the bad of the Hebrew Roots movement.Read More
Pastors and elders are called to be strong, loving, spiritually mature men that guard and protect the flock of Jesus Christ assigned to them. They are to stand and fight against disguised wolves that bring false doctrines into the church, guarding the people Jesus has entrusted to them. But a growing number of Christians are seeing that biblical job description morphing into something completely different, where some pastors are corporate leaders and CEOs instead of teachers, nurturers and protectors. This is one of the subjects on the minds of our listeners in today’s Q&A podcast.Read More
Today Mike and David discuss a provocative and compelling article by Shane Idleman that challenges pastors to stop imitating the world and return to the fundamentals of being a pastor: Teaching the complete Word of God, challenging the flock assigned to them to grow in holiness, and to quit worrying about offending members of their church. Idelman makes an interesting observation in his article: that at a time when “unity” is the buzz word in many churches perhaps it is time for a little separation to divide true born-again believers from the goats.
In our first segment, Mike and David talk with a Messianic Jew who has committed his life to reaching Jews with the truth and gospel of Jesus Christ. We will discuss why most Jews reject Jesus as messiah and how we can share the truth of the gospel with them.Read More

But the reality is we are talking about life or death for an innocent baby created by God in His image.

There can be no doubt the rules of cultural engagement for Christians is changing rapidly – especially as we attempt to share our faith and live our lives. Just the mere mention of the Bible or the word “Christian” conjures up accusations of being an intolerant bigot, homophobe, and hater.
What do we do as Christian witnesses who are instructed to be salt and light in the world?
