Sanitized Socialism’s New Generation in America

Most of us have heard about the recent polls suggesting more Americans, and particularly those under 30, are softening to socialism. We hear the principles of socialism and so-called ‘income inequality’ being proclaimed by major Democrat presidential candidates. But where do Americans stand on this important topic and do people really know the true history about socialism? 

Is the nation really shifting? Is there anything Christian about socialism? We discuss this today.

Who Wants to be God?

The race is on, just as the Bible foretold.  Various individuals, groups and organizations are speeding ahead trying to convince people that the God of the Bible either doesn’t truly exist, or that He would want us to come together and connect the “Christ consciousness” in each of us so that human beings can create utopia on earth. Today we take a closer look at the “oneness” movement, the age of re-enchantment, earth worship, and the openness to practically anything except biblical Christianity.

Carl Teichrib, who has studied the New Age and the various movements and organizations promoting spiritual unity and “oneness” joins Mike and David to discuss ecumenism, the World Council of Churches, Catholicism and Islam, the UN, Burning Man, and the World Parlament of Religions. Carl also provides insights from his extensive research contained in his latest book Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-Enchantment.

Can Our Nation Ever return to What it Once was?

Today, we look at the continuing decline of morality and law in our nation as we visit with Christian scholar Vishal Mangalwadi.  Vishal refers to the Bible as Western Civilization’s founding text and believes that our nation faces catastrophe unless we return to the God’s Word as our source of law and morality.

The Battle for Our Hearts and Minds

Jesus taught that the greatest commandment was that we love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind and soul.  In today’s busy, fast-paced world there are many things bombarding us, fighting for our hearts and minds; distractions that take us away from glorifying and enjoying God.  What are some of these distractions? Money, social media, politics, leisure, and entertainment just to name a few.  And every one of these can demand our attention, passion, or loyalty.  Some will go to great lengths to assure that they become the “masters” of our lives.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins Mike and David to look at the power behind the institutions that vie for our attention and loyalty these days.

Sexuality as a Gift From God

Sexual intimacy between a man and his wife are a great gift from God. This relationship is a human representation of the deep intimacy Jesus wants with His bride, the church.  When a man and his wife are sexually intimate there is a deep physical, emotional and spiritual bonding that God blesses.

But as Satan often does, he takes something beautiful from God and twists it to deceive people. Today, rampant sexuality has led to destruction and disaster: abortion, broken marriages, divorce, and sexual brokenness and even gender confusion.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins Mike and David to discuss the beauty of biblical sexuality and the snare of sexual sin that has led to dramatic moral decline in our nation.

The Changing Role of a Pastor

Vibrant, bible teaching churches are needed more than ever but are so very hard to come by. We need wisdom, biblical knowledge and understanding of God. We also need to show our nation the dangerous path we are on as a nation and people.  But many churches seem intent on conforming to the ways of this world instead of transforming lives by the power of God’s Word.  At a time when we need clear biblical direction we seem to often be lacking in in a growing number of churches.

It usually starts with leadership – pastors who preach the Word and set the example for the flock.  Our guest, Pastor Randy White, joins us to discuss how pastors are being educated and influenced in today’s Christian Seminaries and Bible Colleges, and why that needs to change if we are going to see a true spiritual
l revival in the church and our nation.

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.

America in Crisis: Have We Reached a Tipping Point?

To those of us who are older, seasoned Christians perhaps, we see an America today little like we experienced growing up.  Certainly there were problems throughout our history, but nothing like we witness today.  Moral decay, including the murder of 60,000,000 million children through abortion; a public education system that is in lock step with anti-god globalists; a media with no sniff of objectivity and in the tank for the far left; as well as a political party, the Democrats, that has completely sold out to global corporate interests and the radical LBGTQ lobby.

We live in a nation where both our religious freedoms and right to bear arms are increasingly under attack.

Pastor and best-selling author, Carl Gallups joins us to discuss just where America might be headed.  He brings a unique perspective as a pastor, biblical scholar, and former Law Enforcement Official.  Where are we headed and can this slide toward totalitarian government be averted?  If not, what are the responsibilities of disciples of Jesus Christ toward a government that sees us as a threat to its power?

Rebecca Kiessling: What it Means to be 100% Pro-Life

God speaks very clearly in Scripture on the subject of human life and the value of the unborn. It’s quite confusing why some Christians are still open to exceptions on abortion and others are proudly pro-choice. Even science and biology provide evidence for human life in the womb.

We know at conception, a person’s complete DNA is present – separate from the mother – and we know when a baby’s heart starts beating, when their organs are developed, and that babies can feel pain in the womb at 20 weeks. But today, we’re looking closely at the issue of rape victims and their children.

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.
