Abusing the Word of God for Political Gain

It’s always stunning when Liberals use the Word of God to promote their anti-biblical stances; especially when they are the ones that usually fight tooth and nail against the government creating laws based on scripture. But hypocrisy knows no boundaries and this morning we look at quoted from Elizabeth Warren and Senator Cory Booker, abusing the scriptures to promote a pro-abortion agenda. yes, that’s the same Cory Booker that Willow Creek elevated as a next great “Christian” leader at its leadership Summit just a few years back.

And not to be outdone in abusing scripture, Red Letter Christians have once again shown their true colors of hypocrisy, claiming to be “pro-life,” but refusing to condemn abortion as sin and murder.

In our first segment this morning, Mike and Crash check in with Tina Griffin, Counter-Culture Mom, to discuss ways to protect our children from the dangers of Hollywood, video games and the internet.

Silencing Bible-Believing Christians

One of the easiest ways to get someone mad at you these days is to proclaim something like “I believe the Bible is the Word of God and Jesus is the truth.” The reaction you receive will vary from a look of pity because you are “ignorant” to an angry or defensive response because they see you as a narrow-minded, homophobic bigot. And while American Christians still enjoy religious freedoms for the most part, many around the world do not. Make no mistake: the left is out to strip you of those freedoms any way they can; and they will stop at nothing until you are badgered, bullied or intimidated into silence.

This morning we look at how social media and the legal system is trying to silence Christians.

In our first segment, Mike and David talk with Attorney and professor, Mark Maxwell, a Christian in the entertainment industry who has written a new book that questions the effectiveness and morality of networking for success.

Problem-Free Lives & Perfect Churches

One of the biggest reasons people object to God and the Christian faith is the fact He allows evil and suffering in this world. Many interpret His sovereignty as a lack of care for His creation. This can present a challenge when sharing the gospel, especially on college campuses where young people already have wrong beliefs about Christianity due to the godless culture and education system today.

In our first segment, we’re blessed to have first time guest, Lori Peters, of Ratio Christi ministries. Lori and her husband, Kevin live in New Hampshire and answered God’s call to apologetics ministry. Lori attended Luther Rice University to earn a Master of Divinity in Apologetics, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Theology at Liberty University. She now serves as the Ratio Christi Chapter Director at the University of New Hampshire.

Today’s topics include evil and suffering, apologetics, a pro-life film about Roe v. Wade, and some of the reasons people consider changing churches.

Our Mother Who Art In Heaven, Hallowed Be Beyonce?

Many have detailed Beyoncé’s occult influences, offensive and often graphic song lyrics, her sexually charged, R-Rated performances, and past blasphemy. She also admits to being possessed by a demonic spirit she affectionately refers to as “Sasha Fierce.”

The spirituality behind contemporary feminism often comes in the form of goddess worship, and the fact many have a desire to overthrow the patriarchal structure in society. It is rebellion against God as “Father.”

During the actual Beyoncé mass, an alternate, feminist perversion of the Lord’s Prayer was printed in the program for attendees to read out loud.

Our Mother, who is in heaven and within us, We call upon your names. Your wisdom come. Your will be done. In all the spaces in which you dwell… These are not bad people; they’re just wrong. And this is another gospel.

Is Hollywood Ignoring Success of Christian Films?

Christian films are generally money-makers. Why do you think this is? A lot of people are tired of the trashy, godless, profane products Hollywood typically puts out. Numbers indicate there’s an enormous audience across the country desperate for clean, positive, redemptive, God-centered entertainment.

It doesn’t add up. What does Hollywood love more than money?

Satan’s Globalist Pawns

The Bible warns us that one day Satan would seek to control humanity and this world through his pawn the Anti-Christ. And with the rapid advances in technology and the deceptive propaganda of globalists through issues like “climate change” it seems we move closer each year to buying the lies and walking ourselves into captivity.

This is a multi-faceted problem with many tentacles: Indoctrination through education and media; lies about the dangers of climate change; a government with representatives more interested in personal power instead of serving and leading; and a society fascinated with new technology that says it will make our lives easier and more productive. And you can add to that a professing Christian Church in America that ignores or dismisses biblical prophecy.

We are joined this morning by Patrick Wood who has studied and written on what is called “technocracy”: a move toward global domination by a handful of intellectual elites.

More Division and Dysfunction Within the Church

Today we look at an important controversy within a Christian denomination. This is a legitimate controversy over an important doctrine: predestination. Does God predestine certain people for heaven or hell? Doesn’t man have a choice to confess, repent and submit to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior? Southern Baptists are grappling with this crucial question as New Reformed Calvinism makes an impact on many members of the denomination.

In our first segment, we check in with Tina Marie Griffin, the Counter Culture Mom to discuss dangers to our children in television, movies, music and video games. Topics today include virtual reality, the need for more Christian movies and video games, Facebook censorship, and a stern warning about one of the godless, offensive prime time TV shows. Also, were there satanic images in the background of the Super Bowl halftime show?

Who Determines this World’s Destiny?

Mankind is a mess and getting worse with each passing day as we reject God’s Word in favor of the ways of man. We try new human ideas and nothing changes. We elect new leaders who promise things will get better but they never do. In spite of what God’s Word tells us about the increasing effects of sin and rejecting God some people think mankind still controls his own destiny.

Even within professing Christianity some use human understanding and schemes, thinking we can change the end to this world’s story. But the Bible is clear that this world will one day become so evil and rebellious against God that it will be lead to the brink of self-annihilation. But then the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords returns to judge this world and establish His everlasting kingdom.

Pastor Gary Gilley joins us this morning to continue our look at The NAR (New Apostolic Reform), Many within the movement think Christians are called to take complete dominion over this world, preparing it for the coming of Jesus through gaining control of institutions like education, media and government. But are their views consistent with the Bible?

Christians’ Diverse Views on Morality, Friday Q&A

Absolutely no subject is off limits! On today’s show we answer your questions and read your comments from the week on any topic you want to discuss.

But first we take a look at the mounting chaos and confusion in our nation and ask if our nation is on the verge of a total meltdown of morality and common sense. Our self-proclaimed “One Nation Under God” has become anything but that as radical liberal forces continue to sew seeds of confusion and discontent, and our public schools continue to indoctrinate our children into godless humanism.

The Ongoing Hypocrisy of Hillsong

Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz recently appeared on The View and was asked if his church considered abortion a sin. In typical neutral fashion one would expect from Lentz, he refused to answer directly and a handful of Christian leaders have called him out on his cowardice. With a chance to passionately share the gospel of repentance, stand up for the truth of God’s Word, and explain teachings on sin, forgiveness, and restoration for sinners who confess and believe in Christ’s sacrifice, Lentz instead caved into his own personal god: Celebrity status and popularity.

Well, now after publicly pleasing man (or the women and their audience on The View), Lentz is backpedaling. But his statements reveal his true heart on the matter. We will share more and discuss the debacle on today’s podcast.

In our first segment, we follow up again with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to hear her insights and discuss ways the State of Wisconsin might intervene after the disastrous decision of the De Pere City Council on Tuesday evening.

When Objectivity Sells out to Blatant Bias

Media has historically been referred to as the “fourth leg of our republic” because of its ability and past willingness to accurately report news and uncover hidden agendas within government. But what happens when the media decides to drive its own agenda instead of reporting news? The abortion worldview is one that is defended and promoted via most media outlets either directly or indirectly. Many feel we are seeing the results: a hard left turn toward progressive ideology and socialism in our nation.

Joining us to discuss bias and agendas within the media is Katie Yoder, Associate Culture Editor of Media Research Center. Has responsible journalism permanently left the building within mainstream media? Yes.

The Dangers of “Changing” Genders & Today’s Entertainment

With the insanity of the transgender movement and its growing acceptance by Americans and policy enforcement by the government, a prominent medical organization has weighed in to set the record straight. This morning we cover a report by The American College of Pediatricians that says assisting children in “changing their gender” is actually child abuse – and ultimately destructive to them.

We also look at a Wisconsin technology company that is implanting microchips into its employees. Is this a glance at end-times prophecy, all with the promise that there is nothing to worry about?

In our first segment today, we are blessed to have in-studio guest, Tina Marie of Counter Culture Mom and discuss how we can protect our children from the dangerous ideas of Hollywood, television, the publishing industry, and video games.

Questions and Comments from Listeners

Rather than list many of the questions and comments this week, let’s sum them up this way:

Comments and questions discussed on today’s podcast include an overwhelming response to the current Willow Creek Church/Bill Hybels scandal. Over all listeners who sent in questions or comments on the issue, over 90% are opposed to the Willow Creek Association and Global Leadership Summit, and many have addressed their concerns with their pastor.

Some have already left their churches if it continued to be a part of the Willow Creek Association, while others plan to ask their pastor about it to see how they justify partnering with an organization having so many unbiblical approaches and teachings. In our experience, when confronted about WC, most church leaders double down and refuse to acknowledge the problems.

A few listeners mentioned politics and the fiasco the Senate hearings have become regarding Supreme Court nominee, Bret Kavanaugh. Someone also brought up the difference between being a Christian and a conservative which are often used interchangeably. 

Another Christian couple wants to know how to strike a healthy, biblical balance in the home as campaign season is already upon us. One spouse is more active politically wanting to be salt and light in culture and the other just wants to pray and vote as God leads without getting immersed or frustrated with the political process.

The others we had time for today mentioned the importance of believers knowing and appreciating the Old Testament. Also, a new believer who asked about the parable of the Sower in Mark chapter 4 and does it refute the “once saved always saved” doctrine.

The Real Cause Behind the Crisis at Willow Creek

When you are suffering from the flu, feverish with a soar throat and body aches, are these symptoms the cause of the flu or are they the effects of the flu? They are of course the effects of a virus (the true cause) that has invaded your body leading to physical illness and mild suffering. When you treat the cause you get to the root of the problem; but treating effects will not lead to a cure.

Why bring this up? It’s a key to understanding the latest crisis at Willow Creek Church. The sexual assault scandal involving former Pastor Bill Hybels and several women has led to the Elder Board announcing their resignation. A consulting team has been brought in for damage control and a reorganization plan—you know just like secular businesses and corporations do when facing an internal or PR crisis. But is the sexual scandal the cause of Willow Creek’s crisis or the effects? The fallout is an effect – and in segment 2 we will address the true cause.

In the first segment, Mike and David talk with Carl Teichrib about his upcoming book, “Game of Gods” where he did boots on the ground’ research at Burning Man festival. Carl documents the strange, popular movement combining earth worship, pagan rituals, anarchy and spiritual oneness—all under the guise of “radical tolerance.” And while it might be easy to dismiss what you will hear by calling 80,000 followers goofy nuts, could it be part of Satan’s master plan for the world to worship Anti-Christ?

Is Biblical Prophecy Being Ignored in the Church?

An estimated 30-40% of the Word of God deals with prophecy: Prophecy points Old Testament people to the coming of Jesus the Messiah, and indicates how Jesus returns one day to judge all men and establish His everlasting Kingdom. These are the two most significant events the world will ever experience, so why is Bible Prophecy practically ignored or discounted in more and more churches?

Gary Kah of Hope For the World is a student of biblical prophecy and has researched and written about the coming one world government and religion the Bible says will happen just before the return of the Lord. We’ll discuss the dangers of ignoring biblical prophecy along with looking at events in the Middle East that might be signalling the fulfillment of prophecy in our lifetime.

Are we Medicating Ourselves into an Intellectual Coma?

Watch television for any length of time and you are sure to see ads for new medications promising to make your life better. And while many of these drugs have dangerous side effects, the Pharmaceutical Industry continues to make billions of dollars peddling the latest “cure” for the latest problems of life. Anti-depression medications have saturated the market and record numbers of American children are now being medicated for ADHD. Today, Mike and David discuss the dangers of over-medication and the long term effects on mental health.

On a related subject we look at two interesting, yet very sad articles that are becoming all too common in these days. First, the number of young girls struggling with “gender identity” is skyrocketing; and second, a professor in Sweden is under attack for stating something so obvious that only a fool would argue that he is wrong. Is there a connection between over medication and the intellectual insanity permeating every aspect of society?

The Prayer of a Red Letter Christian

Have you ever wondered how members of the “Red Letter Christians” pray when they gather together? How do you pray to God when you believe He cares more about social justice and immigration than he does the eternal souls of men? This morning, Mike and David will share the opening prayers cited at the Red Letter Christian “Lynchburg Revival.” See if you can spot anything missing.

Mike and David will also discuss the danger of the #MeToo Movement combining with politics and activism. Abortion is just one of the hot-button issues and the Left thinks nothing of destroying its opponents just to make sure they can go on eliminating the lives of innocent children in the womb.

In our first segment, Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach joins the program as he prepares to attend the Parliament of World Religions in Canada in November.
