Mary Danielsen: The Residual Effect of the Emergent Church

Whatever happened to the Emergent or ’emerging’ church? We sure don’t hear much about it anymore, and there are reasons for that. But the truth is the cancer of this deception and its rotten fruit – including a rejection of the deity of Jesus Christ, rebellion against God’s word and moral absolutes, social justice, liberalism, and identity politics – has infected Christian churches across America.

It is quite clearly and simply a war against the Truth. Today we revisit some church history and review this movement as well as the dangerous, unbiblical road many Christians are following today: a path leading away from God’s Word. TODAY’S GUEST is author and watch-woman on the wall, Mary Danielsen.

Everything in Christianity has its counterfeit

Who Wants to be God?

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.

Sexuality as a Gift From God

Sexual intimacy between a man and his wife are a great gift from God. This relationship is a human representation of the deep intimacy Jesus wants with His bride, the church.  When a man and his wife are sexually intimate there is a deep physical, emotional and spiritual bonding that God blesses.

But as Satan often does, he takes something beautiful from God and twists it to deceive people. Today, rampant sexuality has led to destruction and disaster: abortion, broken marriages, divorce, and sexual brokenness and even gender confusion.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins Mike and David to discuss the beauty of biblical sexuality and the snare of sexual sin that has led to dramatic moral decline in our nation.

Assumptions Can Be Dangerous

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.

The Peace of God

Paul tells us in Philippians Chapter 4 that we should rejoice in the Lord at all times, not be anxious and receive the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding.  Now which of us would not want total peace?  Yet which of us as Christians truly experiences it?

We have been forgiven of our sins and received the promise of eternity with God in heaven, yet we continue to struggle and worry about this life.  Instead of exhibiting peace we are often filled with angst.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash today to discuss what the peace of God looks like and how we can enter it and enjoy the life He has given us.

Growing Acceptance of Marxism in Churches

As American Christianity generally bends over backwards to be seen as “loving” to the world, we have seen secular culture extend its influence within the church.  From the social justice movement to the powerful LGBTQ lobby, we see more and more churches accommodating things of this world directly contradictory to the Bible.  And now, with another presidential election on the horizon we are seeing an enhanced push for the church to embrace something that is directly opposed to the Bible: Marxist Socialism.

Mike and David look at the growth of socialist ideals within professing Christianity and why this is ominous and dangerous to the church.

Exposing Media Malpractice: the War on Truth

An honest evaluation and pursuit of the truth is absolutely necessary in the Christian life. But in America (and the agenda-driven media in particular), the roots of deception go deep. Absolutes are questioned, history is either forgotten or rewritten, media has lost all credibility, and good people have fallen for lies, broken promises, and identity politics.
