That’s a Great Question

We receive hundreds of emails and calls every month from listeners asking about certain topics that we might not have covered on air. This morning we share and discuss as many as we can in our “Great Question” segment.

In the first segment, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to discuss the tension between the U.S., Russia, China and North Korea and how it might affect markets and the world economy.

Chipping Away at Biblical Morality and the Economy

The Bible clearly speaks to issues such as marriage, sexual perversion, and the devaluing of human life. And there can be little doubt that on the whole, America has decided to set aside God’s laws on these issues and do what appeals to our flesh. We murder unborn children, promote hedonism, hyper-sexuality; we redefine marriage and family, and now euthanasia is being presented as the next “human right.” Advocates of assisted suicide claim they are fighting for the “dignity” of all and of course, for the good of society.

This morning, we cover a story in Minnesota where a mother has been told by a court she has no right to insist that her teenage son dress like a boy, and then the sad story of an American Institution that long stood for character and morality, but caved to political and monetary pressures to allow transgenders: The Boy Scouts.

In our first segment, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. for an economic update. We ask Doug if there is anything the Trump Administration can do to slow down the economic meltdown many are predicting. A few issues include the health care industry and student loan debt.

Spiritual Truth vs. Moral Relativism

How do we lovingly dialogue and confront moral relativists who claim truth doesn’t exist? This morning we read an “Open Letter to a Relativist”– one woman’s response to a moral relativist whose beliefs seem to speak for a growing number of people these days.

We also check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action to discuss realistic legislation that can be enacted to curtail, and perhaps one day, end the tragedy of abortion in our nation. Can abortion eventually be eliminated? Or do we have to settle for incremental victories from time to time?

A Disconnect With Reality?

We check in with Dr. Charles Ware today, President of Crossroads Bible College in Indiana to discuss Christian leadership, character, reason and racial reconciliation as we look to God’s Word to guide us.

When we look at the confusion and lack of moral compass and common sense displayed by more and more young people today, perhaps we have to look no further than “Higher Education” to see the cause. This morning we cover a news story about how secular Universities are pandering to students who are “searching and confused” about their sexual identity. Just when you thought things couldn’t get more bizarre.

This Election Is All About Religious Liberty

Americans are less than a month away from a national election where their next president will be elected and a majority of the Congress that will make decisions with major long term impact on our nation, and even the Christian Church in America.

Later we will discuss findings from Barna Research on how committed and professing Christians are leaning as they prepare to vote. Some of them are predictable but some are real head-scratchers.

Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action gives us her take on what she sees going on in the election. We will also discuss the attack on religious freedom in our nation and how church leaders can start to prepare now for difficult times ahead. Are there steps we can take as Church leaders to guard our religious liberty and freedom to proclaim the gospel?

Watching the Signs and Trends

Leon Rodriguez, the director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration services, confirmed that people applying for refugee status from places like Syria can be admitted without any documentation. He also acknowledged a “significant” number of refugees who have been admitted into the US in the last eight years have been tied to terror plots.

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.

If Saul Alinsky Was Alive Today

Saul Alinsky, a radical liberal and agnostic, wrote the blueprint on how to introduce chaos through community organizing in hopes of overthrowing the government of the United States by undermining its foundational systems: government, public education, media, and the church. His book Rules For Radicals spells out how people should organize and force change through misinformation and intimidation. In his book he acknowledges the “first radical known to man: Lucifer.”

Today we explore two questions: First, what would Saul Alinsky think if he were alive today? And second, how could a man who admired Lucifer have such a strong influence – not only in our nation but also in too many American Christian Churches?

We’re joined this morning my John Loeffler, a fifty year veteran of broadcast journalism and born-again follower of Jesus Christ. John is in his 25th year of hosting Steel on Steel radio–a news talk program that looks at today’s events through the lens of the Bible.

Just How Low Can Humanity Sink?

In our final segment this morning we cover a tragic story of what can happen when people are taught that human life is an accident of the universe instead of life created by God in His image. A group of teenagers in Florida saw a man drowning, and instead of trying to help him they recorded the event on social media, mocking him as he splashed around. Now, two young daughters are without their father.

First up, we talk with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project and discuss his article, “A Simple Approach to Sharing Your Faith.” Have we made sharing the gospel something we dread instead of enjoy doing? What are some ways we can open up a discussion with anyone, offering them the hope of eternal life with God?

Discernment or Self-Destruction?

This morning on Stand Up For the Truth we read your comments and answer your questions from this week.  One central theme is discernment issues within Christianity.  Are we using proper biblical discernment or engaging in prideful witch hunts, looking to discredit others who we disagree with?  Also, several have chimed in regarding young people seeking “community” outside the confines of church. We discuss these and other topics of interest today.

First up, David covers our weekly Media watch segment, answering this question:  Why does secular media dedicate so much time to covering issues Americans say they don’t care about?

Controversial Issues in the Christian Church

Families and societies operate best when there are fixed standards of morality to guide our actions. In our nation, we were established upon the rule of law, supposedly giving us clear instruction what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior. As Christians we are guided by God’s Word which sets the ultimate standard for morality and acceptable behavior for us. But what happens when “normal” becomes subjective to personal feelings?

In the first segment today, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to keep an eye on world wide economic trends that point to globalism through a coming shake up in the world economy.
