There are so many education-related issues to talk about and not enough time to cover them all adequately in just an hour. So for today’s education update with Dr. Duke Pesta, we’ll tackle some of the biggest overall stories that concern Christians.Read More

This decision could be a precedent future groups can take to court. One small battle has been won but the war continues. I’m hoping, but not holding my breath to see if other American universities will follow suit and take the hostility against Christianity down a notch. Or at least just treat everyone equally even if you don’t agree with them. And that’s something we can all work on.Read More
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.Read More
Today, we look at the continuing decline of morality and law in our nation as we visit with Christian scholar Vishal Mangalwadi. Vishal refers to the Bible as Western Civilization’s founding text and believes that our nation faces catastrophe unless we return to the God’s Word as our source of law and morality.
Vishal Mangalwadi has been called one of India’s foremost Christian intellects. His latest book is titled “This Book Changed Everything” chronicling the Bible’s amazing impact on the world.Read More
Our youth are headed back to school—grade school, high school or college. There is a good possibility they may run into atheist teachers who will present theories and “teachings” that contradict the Word of God. How can we prepare our Christian students for a potential onslaught of propaganda and secular theory that will encourage them to abandon the Word of God for what is presented as “scientific fact” these days?
Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins Mike and Crash this morning to share ideas on how we can equip our students to respectfully interact with public school teachers. They also touch on Jay’s Question of The Month from his website.Read More
A series of recent surveys asked youth who they trust for advice on important moral and practical decisions. Police, government, and even parents were on the list. But what was at the top? College Professors! This is obviously bad news for them, our country, and the Christian Church since the vast majority of College professors are progressive at best and anti-Christian and pro-socialism at worst.
Parents really have their work cut out for them today. Christian kids need a solid foundation of truth and a biblical worldview. Unless things change, things will only grow worse for our nation and the Church in America.
Dr. Mark Eckel of Ratio Christi Ministries joins Mike and David for a discussion on how to reach people with truth from Scripture when many are seeking answers in all the wrong places.Read More
The dictionary defines an assumption as, “assuming something is true or taking a statement for granted.” When we believe something important is truth, and base our life and entire belief system around it only to find out the assumption was wrong, it changes the way we see everything. Sadly, too often in public education and media we are being led to assume certain false beliefs and philosophies are true, and this deception affects how we view God and life itself.
Our guest today is David Richardson, author of “Transparent: How to See Through the Powerful Assumptions that Control You.” We discuss three types of “assumers” and how their assumptions either lead them to truth or deception.Read More
It would be a tragic mistake to think that the seismic lurch to the far left by radical politic leaders in our nation is either temporary, isolated or without spiritual motivation. Rather than a political movement, radical Liberalism is part of a movement bent on uniting the world around global humanism, turning our backs on God. And the Word of God warns us of this tragedy as Jesus prepares to return to judge the nations.
Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins Mike and Crash today to discuss how the radical liberal movement in the U.S. is tied to godless globalism, and how Christianity is its number one threat and target.Read More
Some of the topics we discuss with Dr. Duke Pesta include a taxpayer-funded, “free” breakfast & lunch program in public schools, a liberal college bullying a local bakery, a Christian pastor under fire – from students – for mentioning his faith in a commencement address, Teen Vogue instructing 16-year olds on how to obtain an abortion without their parent’s permission, a new social media platform ant Twitter alternative (Parler.com) that will not censor Christian and conservative voices, AND, the probability that U.S. taxpayers will soon be on the hook for billions of dollars of unpaid student loans.Read More
A deadly fall down a mountain usually begins with a single careless step. And once we take that wrong step, the fall can be swift and lead to serious injury or death. It is no different with our eternal souls – and the souls of others. A single serious misstep of twisting God’s Word to appeal to our flesh can often lead to deception or even a fall.Deceived or deceivers? Today, Mike and David continue to look at the tenets of so-called Progressive Christianity, and how it often disputes and even contradicts the foundational teachings of the Bible. The unbiblical, progressive process of “de-conversion” starts off with questioning a single doctrine from God’s Word, but eventually leads to serious heresy. This leads often many souls to full-blown apostasy.In our first segment we are joined by Tim Hull of Ratio Christi Ministries to discuss his ministry to youth in college as well as tools we can use to bring people into saving faith in Jesus.We also discuss an article pointing common beliefs that progressive Christians often share with Atheists, proving the dangerous, slippery slope of liberalism calling itself “Christian.”Read More
This morning we look at two serious problems facing the Christian Church in America. First we look at Dr. Tony Evans’ thoughts on why and how Satan is seeking to destroy biblical manhood in order to bring chaos into society. Then we look at a pastor in Florida who has written a book tackling the problem of “Cultural Christianity”, calling it out as a “completely different religion” from Biblical Christianity. Is the professing church in America our greatest evangelism field these days?Read More
Today, Mike and David continue to look at an article titled “Why is Christianity Failing in America?” We look at the role of pastors, comparing the duties laid out in God’s Word against the modern trends of American Christianity. If many of today’s pastors have become cheerleaders and CEOs instead of teachers and watchmen and protectors of the ‘flock,’ is it because we as narcissistic people prefer it that way? Do we prefer a church where we are assured of how wonderful we are instead of being challenged to grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ? Does modern American Christianity feed the flesh, or challenge us to pursue holy living
In our first segment, we visit with Aaron Marshall of Ratio Christi Ministries to discuss the challenges of campus ministry when many colleges are trying to squelch Christian ideas, values and free speech.Read More
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.Read More
There’s so much happening in our world, country, and culture today it’s hard to know where to start. We cannot possibly tackle all the tough, controversial issues, but we sure can address some of the most recent news stories that affect our lives, our children, or churches.
David and Crash go through a few dozen news items of interest and strive to offer a balanced, Christian perspective to what’s going on today. As always, trust the Lord Jesus, make the Word of God your solid foundation, be discerning and understand the dark days we find ourselves in.Read More
“A firefighter rescuing people from a burning building may be fearful and prefer to be home with his family, but he ignores his fears and denies himself. Like him, our thoughts are not on ourselves but on the fate of the perishing.” Evangelist, Ray Comfort, Living Waters Ministry
Today’s topic is evangelism, sharing our faith, and the gospel. We discuss reasons to share the gospel as well as why most of us don’t do it. How much of it comes down to our obedience and trusting the Lord? Today’s guest is Jay Seegert of The Starting Point ProjectRead More
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.Read More
