True Christians Weigh In With Facts & Faith

Today, we begin the program with an update on the debate over the so-called “anti-discrimination” bill passed by the De Pere, Wisconsin City Council this week. The battle is not over — it has just begun! And Stand Up for the Truth is taking an active role in gathering local ministry support, raising awareness of the issue, and investigating legal options.

Fridays are for listener’s comments and questions, and we have another packed program with excellent input and feedback. We address your comments on a variety of issues ranging from the De Pere City Council action, to Hillsong Pastor Carl Lentz and his apparent abortion/sin flip-flop, to how the liberal press and education are using deception to promote their agenda.

Celebrating Evil, & Listener Friday!

The City of Manitowoc, Wisconsin kicks off its Windigo Fest tonight. “Windigo” is an American Indian folklore about a cannibalistic monster and evil spirit who allegedly possesses humans and becomes monstrous. There is even a modern medical term associated with it these days called “Windigo Psychosis.” Despite protests and concerns from some citizens, the city is allowing this dark event and some are very concerned the city is opening its arms to demonic presence and influence.

And guess who is kicking off the event? Opening with “some prayers for healing from the evil violence shaking our nation,” is a local Presbyterian pastor. So pastor, you are endorsing and participating in an event that celebrates violence and spiritual possession, while praying against violence in our nation?

We also share your comments and questions from the week, including comments from students who received varying reactions to bringing their bibles to school yesterday, gun control, understanding the liberal mindset, and what to do when your children argue with you about going to church.

Amir Tsarfati on Israel & Bible Prophecy! Plus Listener Questions

Friday is typically the day when we turn the show over to you, our listeners to discuss any topic you want. Some of the issues you want to discuss today include:

The ongoing NFL protest controversy
Free Masonry
Will American Christian Churches ever return to a biblical model for church? 
The continuing gifts of the Holy Spirit vs. the teaching of “cessationism”
The New Apostolic Reform Movement, 
and, how do we speak the truth in love when the other side wants to shut us down?
Before we get to your questions, we have a special guest on the program today – and we’ve been trying to get this man back for about 10 months. In our first segment, we welcome back Amir Tsarfati of Behold Israel Ministries to discuss world events in light of Scripture, the increasing pressure on Israel, the Interpol vote at the U.N. to accept a “state of Palestine,” Europe being ready for the Antichrist, witches putting hexes on President Trump, and unfolding events in the Middle East that point to biblical prophecy.

Christians Weigh in on the National Anthem/NFL Controversy

Our nation has been in steady decline over the past fifty to seventy-five years. A nation, claiming in the past it was established under the guidance of God and His principles, has increasingly abandoned His ways. We have aborted more than 55 million children, redefined marriage to fit our humanist beliefs, and now actually encourage young people to defy the gender God has assigned them. We also face terrorist threats and world powers with nuclear weapons intent on our destruction as division and chaos grows within our nation.

Is the friction reaching a boiling point with the recent controversies over The National Anthem protests? President Trump, true to his nature, couldn’t resist criticizing the NFL players who have protested and challenged NFL owners to “fire them” if they continue to protest. Some are applauding his bold statements; others wish he would keep his mouth shut and not be compelled to comment on so many issues.

Now you may think that this issue has nothing to do with Christians, but it might well affect our freedom of religious expression down the road and impede our ability to publicly share the gospel of salvation.

In our first segment, we continue with listener comments and questions we did not get to last Friday. IN our second and third segments, we dive into the debate on how Christians should respond to the NFL football/National Anthem issue. On our Facebook page this morning, dozens of you weighed in on the controversy about NFL players protesting and we address many of your comments.

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.

Your Questions and Comments

On today’s show we answer your questions and read your comments from this week. Some of the issues we discuss include:

Rob Bell’s tragic influence within Christianity; recent hurricanes and whether they are a sign of God’s judgment on our nation, Christian music – is it losing its affect and focus? Freedom of speech in light of National Anthem protests, the tough decision on when to leave a church.

David also has our weekly Media Watch segment where we dissect the hypocrisy and double standards of today’s media.

How Serious is the North Korea Threat?

Last weekend, North Korea successfully tested a hydrogen bomb.  Already possessing nukes and threatening to use them against the U.S., the fact they now have hydrogen bombs raises the stakes dramatically for two reasons:  First, hydrogen bombs are far more powerful than simple nuclear weapons, and second, a hydrogen bomb is much more plausible for what might be a worst nightmare for our nation.  Some suggest an electronic magnetic pulse bomb (EMP) could wipe out every computer and electronic capability of our nation for up to a full year. If that happens, government experts predict the casualty rate could be as high as 90% in our nation and it would practically eliminate America as a world power.

This morning we discuss the threat and ask how Christians should respond in the face of potential tragedy.

In our first segment today, we check in with Counter Culture Mom, Tina Marie Griffin, to discuss dangers in media for our children, practical alternatives for parents, and a big event coming up in a few weeks for women.

Quick Biblical Answers & Political Correctness Unhinged

PODCAST: Just when you think political correctness couldn’t get any more absurd, the left takes it to another level of insanity. ESPN has relieved a college football announcer of his assignment to call a game, not because of his private or controversial views, but because of his name. They are worried that his name given to him at birth might make some of their audience “uncomfortable”.

Also, what percentage of Americans actually view themselves as sinners? Well the answer might surprise you.

In our first segment, we check in with author, Bryan Osborne, whose new book Quick Answers to Tough Questions can help Christians be prepared to share the reason for our eternal hope from God’s Word when the world asks difficult questions.

Lies, Media Cover-ups, & Climate Chaos Continue

It’s time again for our weekly Media Watch segment, followed by YOUR portion of the program in which we answer your questions and comments from this week. First, in our media segment we address: Lies about repealing ObamaCare; covering up Democratic Party scandals; and, He’s back! Al Gore has a new movie out with more distortions about climate change and of course, the media is more than willing to support his agenda – including his claims to save the planet while bringing it under the control of a handful of elites—like Al Gore.

Some of the questions we will respond to include topics such as: Christians working for ungodly corporations, allowing Muslim Imams into our churches to talk about Islam, what to do when you and your spouse cannot agree on which church to attend, and is it time to give up on our political leaders and perhaps even those who lead the church in America?

Five Big Deceptions, Listener Comments, and Church Security

There can be little doubt the LGBTQ movement has gained both momentum and power in America and sadly, within too many churches. Now with the transgender part of the LGBTQ being rolled out, the Left is winning the battle for the public square in part by having successfully shaped public opinion over the past several decades. It’s interesting this directly correlates with a growth in biblical illiteracy and an increasing belief that the Bible is not the inerrant Word of God.

Today we discuss five of the biggest deceptions being perpetrated on Christians and the American people by transgender movement.  Since most media, government and public education caved to political correctness and increasing pressure from the LGBTQ camp, these lies and delusions are now repeated so often that most simply accept them as being true.

The majority of today’s program – as it is each Friday now – is dedicated to your comments and questions from the week on a variety of topics. And no subject is off limits.

Confronting the Lies and Propaganda of the Transgender Movement

Most of us understand there is nothing new under the sun and that includes sin. Though this may seem like a more recent shift, America and many Christian Churches are have been gradually seduced by lies and deception regarding the transgender movement in our nation. As City and State governments rush to pass legislation pandering to political correctness in the name of fairness, love, and equality, it seems few are bothering to evaluate the scientific facts about this deception, much less the biblical truth about creation and humanity.

Our lack of knowledge, along with our desire to conform and be politically correct is putting thousands of children at risk for a life of misery and confusion, along with elevated health risks as well as suicide attempts.

This morning we take an in-depth look at a statement on transgenderism from the American College of Pediatricians that addresses and confronts the lies and deceptions of Hollywood, the media, the LGBTQ community and its sympathizers.

We will also share some of the chilling effects of this legislation as it has been implemented around our nation.

The Spirit of Antichrist

1 John 4:1-3: “Beloved do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.”

Matter settled: Islam is a spirit of antichrist because it denies that Jesus is God in the flesh…so why are so many professing Christians believing that Christians and Muslims worship the same god?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer sheds some light on this deception.

In our final segment we look at the continuing hypocrisy of the left regarding freedom of speech and religious expression.

Are We Truly Living for the Glory of God?

In Matthew 15:7-9, Jesus pointed out the hypocrisy of the Pharisees by saying:

“You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said: ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”

The first step for us as born-again Christians is to admit that we speak and act like hypocrites far too often. The second step is to be committed to allowing the grace and Spirit of God to bring our hypocrisy to an end as we grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ. Because of the continuing sinful nature within us and the pressures in this world that will be a life long battle, but one we should be committed to fighting.

How often do we damage our testimony and witness to lost people when we behave in a way that contradicts the Word of God? Does your spouse and children see a different you compared to the one people see when you’re in church? Do we want enough of God’s grace to be saved; but not enough to be sanctified and made holy?

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch is here to help us look internally at our hearts and the hypocrisy we too often display.

In Order to Fight Evil We Must First Understand It

It is very easy to become distracted or overwhelmed with all that’s going on in our world. North Korea and its threats; ISIS and the wars in the Middle East; increasing attacks on Christians and Jews around the globe; and Christians being marginalized and pushed out of the public arena here in the U.S.

But if we stay anchored in God’s Word and keep our faith and focus on Him, we will understand the times and see these events from a big picture perspective. With the Bible as our foundation, we will be encouraged and equipped to stand strong in our faith and trust in God’s sovereignty.

Pastor Carl Gallups joins us this morning to help sift through the noise and keep our minds focused on God’s Word and promises. We will also discuss the growing threats to Christian Churches and if it is time for more churches to take the safety of its members more seriously by implementing security measures.
