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
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
This morning, Mike and David continue discussing how that which calls itself “Christianity” in America is becoming anything but biblical Christianity more and more. We look at a Lip Sync event at Luther Seminary in Minnesota to show just how far off the rails one denomination has fallen. We also look at a recent statement by the National Evangelical Association supporting the LGBTQ movement in its special rights under the guise of “equality.”
In our first segment, we talk with Art Ally of The Timothy Plan to discuss biblical generosity and how the money Christians invest in corporations and stocks is being used to either glorify God or support those who oppose biblical Christian values.Read More
Here are some of this week’s questions and comments from Stand Up for the Truth listeners:
You guys always have great discussions with people from Ratio Christi – what a solid ministry.
How do we best understand the topic of the eternal security of true believers?
I was an atheist and many people planted seeds in me through the years. I don’t think there is a ‘one size fits all’ method of evangelism. People are reached in different ways.
Regarding witnessing and the true conversion of young people such as college students, I think their faith often depends on discipleship and on what church they end up attending.
Loved your spirited discussion about praying for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg after she fell. It is both right to pray for her to be saved or healed as well as to pray for God to remove her from her position of influence on SCOTUS.
Your show has helped me find a new passion for the Old Testament, thank you.
Serious Christians better understand that Liberalism is not only a cancer to our country but also to Christianity.
To claim you love God more than anything but then blatantly disobey his clear teachings on life, marriage, and gender cannot be reconciled.Read More

SEGMENT 1: For too long, too many people think of abortion as merely a “political” or a “social” issue”. Some suggest it only falls under the category of privacy: a woman’s medical decision “between her and her Doctor”. But the reality is we are talking about life or death for an innocent baby created by God in His image.
Wisconsin Right to Life is one of the most prestigious, efficient pro-life organizations in our nation. Mike and David are joined by Heather Weininger, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life to discuss pro-life issues as well as the September 24 Green Bay dinner reception for the Veritas Society.
SEGMENT 2: YOUR COMMENTS AND QUESTIONSRead More
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?
Today Mike and David take a comprehensive look at the controversy surrounding New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees who is being criticized from all angles over his recent support of the national campaign, “Bring Your Bible to School Day” (Oct. 3). Brees also responded to the criticism he received from cultural bullies and LGBTQ advocates as well as the Christian Community.Read More
