It’s been quite a ride this week since the news broke of our victory in court as we challenged a De Pere city “non-discrimination” ordinance. Many of you have weighed in with both praise as well as some criticism. Today, Mike addresses your comments and questions over the last couple weeks.Read More

Dr Duke Show hosts, Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project join us today for some almost unbelievable education updates. You’re not going to believe what is actually happening on college campuses and in public school classrooms in America. Some in the LGBTQ community are now openly admitting their goal is to “groom young children.” Their agenda has moved on from diversity to inclusion. We discuss what they mean by “inclusion.”
We look at recent news stories showing how government-run education is repressing Christian thought and expression.
We also explain the good news from Friday that a judge struck down De Pere’s extremely broad, non-discrimination ordinance. Judge William Atkinsion upheld our challenge and struck down the ordinance calling it unconstitutional, ruling in favor of Christian ministries and religious freedom.
So praise God! Our legal challenge to the City of De Pere’s “non-discrimination” ordinance was successful.Read More
We certainly hear the phrase, “God accepts you just the way you are” thrown around quite liberally in Christian circles. But is that actually what the Bible teaches? This is one question we tackle this morning as we read your questions and comments from the week. Other topics include:
The eternal security of true believers.
Is there such a thing as ‘Christian yoga’ or Christian tarot cards’?
The apostate Social Justice theology infiltrating churches.
Do we tend to view the world and Christianity through our “American eyes”?
Should Christians allow themselves to be hypnotized in effort to break a bad habit or addiction?
What did John Loeffler mean by there’s a difference between liberals and new radical liberals?
How do we know that our conscience is being led by the Holy Spirit and not our own flesh?
With the lack of solid, sound teachings, at what point can mature believers consider starting a home church?
Can a Christian lose their salvation? What about those who add to the Scriptures?
Today’s podcast seems like a political show.
How does God’s Law still apply to the life of born-again believers?
Does suicide prevent a person from going to heaven?

The Bible warns us that in the final days good would be seen as evil and evil seen as good. This is to be expected of a fallen, sinful world, but not within the Church itself. Anyone with a modicum of common sense can see what is happening in the Senate confirmation meetings over Judge Brett Kavanaugh: godless radicals are stooping to new lows to destroy a man they think might one day hinder a woman’s “right” to kill the child in her womb. Make no mistake: this spiritual war is over abortion, a Sacrament of the Democrat Party.
Stalin and Lenin referred to them as “useful idiots” blind to truth because they rejected God and are rallying behind lies and slander in order to allow legalized abortion to remain unhindered. Sadly, even in the American church, a number of these evildoers have infected church leadership in every denomination of Christianity. For example, the National Council of Churches has called for Judge Cavanaugh to step aside, officially siding with evil and the murder of innocent children.
LISTENER QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS
What is the proper, biblical stance? Pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib?
How can there be accountability in a church when there are no elders and little discipleship?
Why do so many churches avoid teaching about Bible prophecy when it’s nearly a third of Scripture?
I think the era of Big Brother is being implemented right before our eyes.
Thanks for having guests like Elijah Abraham and James Walker, and reminding us that Christians are to love and share the truth with Muslims, not fear them.
I am no fan of most Republicans in Washington, but the Democrat Party has turned evil right before our eyes in their zeal for political power and are willing to destroy anyone who stands in their way. They’ve sold out to the LGBTQ movement and radical Marxists.
Can you explain why some Christians defend Andy Stanley while others criticize him regarding his comments on unhitching from the Old Testament?Read More
We are in a battle, but how can we successfully fight when half of the army refuses to engage? As Christians, we are soldiers of Christ and the warfare in this life is very real and yet, so many believers don’t want to acknowledge the reality of this fight. John R. W. Stott once said:
“We should not ask, ‘What is wrong with the world?’ for that diagnosis has already been given. Rather, we should ask, ‘Where is the salt and light? Where is the Church? Why are the salt and light of Jesus Christ not permeating and changing our society?’”
From the family to the church to the community and culture, Christians have been too preoccupied with earthly, temporary concerns than seeking first the kingdom of God. I realize this seems like a broad statement, but don’t you think America would look very different if true believers had been vocal and actively engaged in advancing the gospel over the last hundred years?
Today’s guest is Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council. We discuss everything from our local and state government to the transgender agenda which now includes Drag Queen story hours in our local libraries!Read More
On Fridays, Mike and David talk about whatever is on your heart and mind. This week as always, we answer as many listener questions and comments as we can regarding:
Using Romans 7 as an excuse to go on sinning
Is the Pope causing some Catholics to question their own teachings?
Should women be allowed to be pastors?
Are all prosperity preachers ‘charlatans’?
A youth group leader concerned that kids in church bristle when they hear the word “sin”
Creflo Dollar or Todd Friel: whose doctrine is biblically sound?
A woman learned her husband had an affair: should she forgive and stay in the marriage?
Is tithing a requirement in the Christian church?
Jesse Duplantis and the “Word of Faith” movement.
Liberals have successfully painted themselves as champions for human rights, yet they overwhelmingly continue to support the murder of innocent children in the womb. Somehow, some way they have successfully dismissed the life of an innocent child as something less than a human right. And sadly a majority of Americans and even professing Christians have historically favored abortion to some extent. But is the tide of public opinion starting to change?
This morning we are joined by Stephanie Gray, an international pro-life speaker who began speaking publicly at age 18. She has appeared on almost every major television network and spoken at dozens of college campuses including Yale, George Washington University and California-Berkeley. And last year she spoke at Google in a speech that went viral titled “Abortion: From Controversy to Civility”. She is a born-again believer who is changing minds and hearts by God’s power and grace.Read More
The federal Government recently experienced a short shut down over the issue of immigration and the so-called “dreamers,” and unless our leaders come up with a plan to address the immigration issue facing our nation, another shut down may happen again. Conservatives are insisting that border security and a comprehensive plan on immigration be adopted while most liberals seem to want a form of “blanket amnesty” for illegal immigrants.
Does the Word of God address the issue of immigration? Today we share a perspective from Laura Lacey of Christian Headlines.
In our first segment we talk with Steve Sonderman, coordinator of the No Regrets Men’s Conference. What is the role of Christian men in our churches, family and society, and how is the enemy trying to undermine the role of Christian men as leaders both in the home and in our communities?Read More
Today, we answer your questions to the best of our ability and read your comments from this week. The topics we address today include:
The deception of Liberal Christianity.
Why truth and doctrine is divisive.
What is Calvinism?
A Muslim perspective on recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
The lack of strong, bible-based leadership in some churches.
Should Christians celebrate Christmas?
Is the Church prepared to address potential sexual harassment charges?
Why so many pastors refuse to talk about abortion/life in a mother’s womb.
Is President Trump really a born-again believer?
The takeover of American Churches by progressive ideology.
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.Read More
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.Read More

Pyrite is a mineral made up primarily of iron that looks like gold, thus it’s nickname of “fool’s gold.” It looks like valuable gold but in reality, it is generally useless and of little to no value.
As America continues celebrating godlessness and too many members of churches fail to look significantly different than the secular culture taking over this nation. A growing number of churches and professing Christians are holding “fool’s gold” thinking it will save them when they stand before Jesus Christ as judge, only to find out what they hold is useless and even abhorrent before our Lord and Savior.
Elijah Abraham is a former Muslim and now born-again believer who travels around the world proclaiming the gospel, teaching pastors, and equipping believers who face constant threats of persecution. He shares insights about what he has witnessed with believers here in America compared to churches in countries where persecution is often a way of life. Elijah points out the lack of maturity, discipleship, and sound doctrine in too many American churches.Read More
In our final segment today we look at the increasing evil and godlessness of our world, our nation, and how Christians must stand out as light and salt. Jesus said the greatest commandment is that we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind. The second is that we love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Biblical Christianity is all about relationships in a world that is broken, decimated by sin, and needs to be reconciled to God.
How do we as disciples of Jesus Christ develop truthful, loving relationships with other believers as well as those still imprisoned in darkness? Pastor Randy White joins Mike and David to discuss relationships according to the Bible.Read More
The Bible is clear that there will be many false teachers leading people astray in the final years, and many professing Christians will be part of this final apostasy. It also tells us we should avoid anyone who teaches a gospel contrary to the Bible’s teaching. But Paul also tells us to bear with one another as believers; standing up for truth, but also not allowing insignificant divisions to cause problems. The problem is that we are not always clear about what is a significant or insignificant division within Christianity.Francis Chan has been on a very interesting journey over the past few years. He resigned as pastor of the mega-church he founded and went on a personal sabbatical. He has returned and finds himself in a growing controversy surrounding his criticism of American Christianity as well as his recent appearances at IHOP and alongside Todd White and Benny Hinn. Really?So where does Chan really stand on doctrine? Mike, David, and Crash look at the controversy and discuss the difficulties in being discerning Christians without jumping to conclusions or branding those we disagree with a “heretic” or “apostate.”ARTICLESRead More
Our world is in the midst of a social and political upheaval that is threatening institutions and confusing a lot of people. And many think this is a well planned series of events to lead mankind to seek a “savior” who will bring up peace and tranquility. The Bible warns us of such a man and calls him “Anti-Christ”.
Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministries joins Mike and Crash to discuss the rapid move toward globalization and how Christians can prepare for the coming persecution the Bible warns us about.Read More
