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.

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.

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.

Addressing the Growing Crisis in Public Education

Last week, an expelled student known for erratic behavior and run-ins with police returned to his former High School in Florida and murdered 17 people. Predictably, the liberal media’s primary message and solution is “more gun control”—a simplistic response to a complex crisis. Rather than looking deeper at the spiritual, it is made a political, Democrat vs Republican issue, which I believe is irresponsible.

Instead of taking the time to understand the underlying causes for these tragedies, liberals continue to blame guns–inanimate objects that only do what the person holding them makes them do. Why does the left spout this continuing response to violence? Because the only alternative is to acknowledge that sinful man can be evil—a direct contradiction to their liberal and often atheist beliefs.

So what can be done? Dr. Randy White joins us to discuss public education issues as well as some possible solutions. Then we’ll tackle the latest fad hitting higher education in our nation: White privilege.

Worldview Matters: Truth or Consequences?

After thousands of years of constant attacks, opposition, and intense scrutiny by critics − warfare that no other work has ever seen − the Bible has withstood the onslaught, has gained credibility, and the Christian faith has continued to thrive throughout the world. Why?
No other written work has the power to convict people of their sin, the ability to change human nature, and offers a permanent solution to man’s greatest problem.

Consider the uniqueness of the Bible: a record of God’s message to His creation, miracles, history, an honest assessment of evil and the heart of man, unique claims, a plan of salvation, and a specific description and vision of the end times.

Looking Behind the Curtain

In our final segment today we look at comments by Joy Behar of The View who suggested Vice President Pence might be mentally ill because he speaks to God through prayer and says that God often speaks to him.  Is this religious intolerance where our nation is headed?  People who believe in God and seek Him in prayer brandished as mentally ill?  According to Hollywood liberals and many on the Left, yes.

In reality, God’s Word in Romans 1 says those that reject the truth of God are the ones whose actions become deranged and sick.  And a careful observation of many celebrities, media, and others once again confirms the truth of God’s Word.

Also, as the federal government grows larger and more intrusive by the day more and more people are wondering where our nation is headed.  And  theories about a “shadow government” behind the scenes that is manipulating policy and leaders toward a one world government have moved from a conspiracy theory of the paranoid to mainstream thought as government invades every sector of our lives.

And in breaking news yesterday, a mentally sick and evil man walked into his former school that had expelled him and opened fire on students and faculty killing at least seventeen people.  There have already been calls for expanded government control of guns and schools in reaction to this tragedy. Is this the best path?

True Christians and students of God’s Word know there is indeed a conspiracy to bring all people under the umbrella of a one world government because God’s Word tells us it will happen.  But while the deluded left believes this will help mankind, we know the leader of this united world is anything but benevolent. In fact he is a puppet of Satan himself.

Pastor Carl Gallups is a former law enforcement officer and a student of biblical prophecy. He has written best-selling books, has also studied events in our nation, and the growth of government deception and oppression.

Love and Marriage: The World’s Way vs God’s Way

Millions of people celebrate Valentine’s Day today and the influences of this world have men and women spending billions of dollars on flowers, chocolate, romantic dinners and getaways. And the man-made vision of a fat little cherub firing arrows at people inducing love seems to reinforce a faulty belief: that love is something that happens to us without a choice, like a chemical reaction or a feeling we just cannot fight.

But what exactly is love according to God’s Word? What should a strong, loving marriage look like? And why do nearly half of all marriages end in divorce? This sad reality even strikes professing Christians. Where are we going wrong?

We’re joined by Pastor Jeff Solwold of Calvary Chapel in Madison, Wisconsin to discuss God’s definition of love and His guidelines for a joyous marriage that glorifies Him, one in which honors one another. How do we as committed Christians have strong marriages even when things do not go according to our human desires, expectations, and plans?
