Radical Truth: Islam, Muhammad, & Middle East History

Do we understand the true history of Islam? At the turn of the 8th century, the Middle East was 95% Christian. Today, it is less than 6% Christian. WHAT HAPPENED? Muslims are now being elected to the U.S. Congress. Many were appointed by the Obama administration. What about freedom of religion – is it for all faiths? What about the U.S. Constitution? Is America’s system of government compatible with Sharia Law? Hear the “Radical Truth” on today’s podcast with Tony Gurule.

Open War is Upon Us: the Reality of Spiritual Warfare

When darkness increases, light shines the brightest. So how does America look today? Where is the salt and light? Are Christians equipped for the spiritual and cultural battles we are faced with today? As we strive to share the Gospel, there is also a spiritual war going on against Christ and His truth. The Bible encourages believers to be soldiers for Christ. And in Ephesians 6 Paul tells us to put on the armor of God. Why?

Believers need preparation and protection! Paul writes that the Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God, the only offensive weapon for believers. We must speak the word and, in order to do that we need to know the word of God.

Gathering Storms of War in the Middle East

The Bible teaches us that in the final years before our Lord’s return there would be a large, destructive war against Israel by her enemies.  Could we be witnessing the stage being set for the final chapter of Earth’s history before the Lord Himself returns to judge mankind and establish his everlasting kingdom?

Gary Kah of Hope for the World joins Mike to discuss the events that seem to be pushing the world one step closer to the return of our Lord and Savior?

More Public Schools Promoting Islam

“We found that the teachers were subjected to two days of Islamic propaganda, where Islam was glorified, Christianity disparaged, and America bashed…”

Over four hundred teachers underwent mandatory training in Michigan recently that exalted Islam but denigrated Christianity, America, and white males. The training leads people to believe Islam is the peaceful, true religion while Christianity is a man-made, inferior, false religion.

Comments & Questions: A ‘Red Flag’ to Watch

On Fridays we discuss your comments and answer your questions – always looking to God’s Word. Several of you have written in about potential gun control laws and the possible threat of disarming the general public. Should Christians obey such a law? Also:

When pastors tell too many stories or analogies during a sermon, does it take away from God’s Word?

Christian parents needing advice for daughter with an influential lesbian friend.

The Jewish concept of “Minyan”- not “minion” as used in different contexts.

A man overhears women undermining the spiritual authority of their husbands.

Are we on the verge of Christian persecution in America and are Christians and churches prepared spiritually?

You can connect with us at comments@standupforthetruth.com or by texting speak up to 90100.

The Spiritual Side of Radical Liberalism

It would be a tragic mistake to think that the seismic lurch to the far left by radical politic leaders in our nation is either temporary, isolated or without spiritual motivation.  Rather than a political movement, radical Liberalism is part of a movement bent on uniting the world around global humanism, turning our backs on God.  And the Word of God warns us of this tragedy as Jesus prepares to return to judge the nations.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins Mike and Crash today to discuss how the radical liberal movement in the U.S. is tied to godless globalism, and how Christianity is its number one threat and target.

Rampant Evil Against God’s People

In Romans 1, Paul warns that people who reject the truth of God are turned over to a reprobate mind to do unspeakable evil.  Mike and David discuss three examples of growing evil against Christians in China, Africa and India, and discuss how long it might be before that evil spreads to the U.S. and threatens Christians here.

We also talk with Pastor Frank Figueroa of Reasons For Hope Ministry on the challenges of reaching the people of Hawaii with the gospel, and talk about how our difficult challenges are God’s way of strengthening and preparing us for the work He has given us.

Is Christian Persecution in America Just Around the Corner?

Today we take another look at the state of Christianity in America and discuss the real hostility and discrimination against believers in Christ, as well as the possibility the gospel may soon be banned in our nation.  We discuss the so-called Equality Act and its threat to Bible-believing Christians, and explain how the church itself has practically opened the door to welcome discrimination against God’s truth and the gospel. Why? Because we want to be loved by a world that hates Jesus and His Word.

Your Comments and Questions

We get to tackle many of your questions and comments every Friday. Here we go!

Books being read to kindergartners about Islam
Why don’t more Christians pitch in and serve at church?
Love how Stand Up challenges and encourages us at the same time
Eternal security – (once saved, always saved?)
Is President Trump’s Middle East peace deal naive?
Should an unbeliever be allowed to lead or serve on the church worship team?
The radical liberals seem unwilling to be tolerant and carry on any civilized conversation anymore.
Our new, young pastor knows little about theology and does not have sound doctrine, but he learned it in seminary and doesn’t think the Bible is inerrant.
For those harping on President Trump’s past and his Twitter rants, consider the alternatives we’re seeing in the Democrat Party candidates running for 2020 nomination. Such a stark contrast.
Is it time to give up on the American “church” that has gotten so sidetracked and watered-down?
What advice can you give us about retirement accounts? How much money do we really need?

Jay Seegert: What on Earth are You Doing?

“A firefighter rescuing people from a burning building may be fearful and prefer to be home with his family, but he ignores his fears and denies himself. Like him, our thoughts are not on ourselves but on the fate of the perishing.” Evangelist, Ray Comfort, Living Waters Ministry

Today’s topic is evangelism, sharing our faith, and the gospel. We discuss reasons to share the gospel as well as why most of us don’t do it. How much of it comes down to our obedience and trusting the Lord? Today’s guest is Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project

Tina Marie Griffin: Christian Parents, Please Protect Your Kids!

Most of us know and understand the fact that too much screen time can affect our lives. Some would say screens are frying our brains, but we won’t go that far. Media affects us emotionally as well, to the point some people simply have to unplug for a while. Kids need to do this even more so as they are forming life habits – including a worldview – and social media and technology does affect their young minds and behavior.

For Christian parents, the importance of protecting your children from all the dangers, seductions, and perversions on social media cannot be overstated. All parents must go the extra mile and take this very seriously. We catch up with Counter Culture Mom, Tina Marie Griffin to talk about the dangers of social media and today’s ‘accepted’ forms of entertainment.

Julaine Appling: Free, Fair Elections from WI to D.C.

We kick off another year with a church and country that are divided over so many issues. Religion and politics continue to be lightening rods of debate across the nation, but to say Christians should keep our faith behind closed doors or out of politics is both naive and misguided.
