Biblical Answers to Your Comments and Questions

It’s another Friday! That means more listener questions and comments – our favorite program of the week. Here are a handful of topics we discuss today:

Bethel Church – some great worship but some flawed teaching as well?
Two extremes in Christian churches: legalistic with little grace or abusing grace and not confronting sin
My wife wants nothing to do with God or church, but said she was a Christian when we got married four years ago. What should I do on Sundays?
Home churches can be good or bad depending on the teaching and leadership
The danger of focusing on “common ground” when it comes to Christianity and false religions
I have a love/hate relationship with your show!
We are in the world but not of the world, and need proper perspective when it comes to sharing the gospel and battling for truth in culture

Thanks for the right spiritual balance you have on Stand Up

Addressing Misinformation, Plus Q&A Friday

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.

A Victory for Religious Freedom

On December 14, 2018, the Court strongly reiterated that Wisconsin Law provides strong protections from a church or non-profit religious organization being considered a “place of public accommodation”. This was a crucial ruling for several reasons.

The Dr. Duke Show, Religious Freedom, and Radicals in Academia

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.

Listener Questions & Comments

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?

As the Battle Rages, Many Christians Opt Out

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!

Jesse Duplantis and the “Word of Faith” movement.

The Sacred Right to Life

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.
