Dismissing Doctrine, Islam, Witchcraft

Last week, some media outlets covered a story of a group of Witches gathering to cast a curse on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Their curse called for him to suffer physically and emotionally and lead to his eventual death. The secular outlets that covered it mostly laughed it off as foolishness. But to dismiss witches casting spells may be foolish and ignorant as well. Should these curses be dismissed or taken seriously?

Elijah Abraham has traveled to dozens of countries sharing the gospel with Muslims, and equipping Christian pastors and leaders to share the gospel in their nations. Some of these nations are ones where witch doctors and spiritual shamans cast similar spells. Abraham also equips Christians in nations where going public with your Christian faith might be met with violent opposition. He joins us to share his ministry experiences, and to discuss the effectiveness and maturity of professing Christian Churches in our own nation as we continue to see compromise with the world.

What is Behind the Modern Liberal Curtain?

When you watch a movie with great special effects, what you see looks amazing (Buildings exploding, giant dinosaurs, super heroes flying). But when you look behind the curtain so to speak, and see how computer generated imaging produces these effects, the magic wears off and you realize it is all fantasy and illusion.

Today, we look at the hard core progressive movement in our nation and how it is built on contradiction and illusion, but sadly most Americans never take the time to look at what is actually going on or where we are being led. And this same deceit might just be infecting the very church you attend every Sunday.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio is an authority on the real agenda and thought process of the hardcore Left joins us to help us take a peek behind the curtain of illusion that is modern Liberalism.

Quote from John Loeffler:

“Are we going to be a free society with the rights guaranteed under the Constitution of speech and religion and press and property – all of which have been under siege by judicial activism for the last 50 years – or will we go careening forward into some kind of oligarchic, progressive, socialistic dictatorship that we know from countries around the world that always fails with economic and social collapse?”

We discuss the difference between Left and Liberal, the contradictions within the very thinking of progressives, the long-term effects of the transgender movement and gender-fluid conditioning, and the failure of many churches to stand for the inerrancy of Scripture and biblical morality.

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?

Voting in Wisconsin; Welcoming Baal to Washington D.C.

There is always a certain arrogance to our sin. And the greater the pride or arrogance, the greater the sin. America, founded on Judeo-Christian principles and values, is rapidly turning away from God in her arrogance, symbolized best by our very own government and the nation’s capitol in Washington D.C.

America’s defiance of God has now reached a new level as a replica of the Arch of Baal has taken up residence on the National Mall of Washington D.C.—and lawmakers republican and Democrat alike are giddy about it. We’ll cover the story in our second segment today. In segment three, we’ll continue our look at the Barna Research study from 2017 that reveals exactly what professed born-again believers actually believe about God and the Bible.

In our first segment we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action and Council. There is so much to talk about including the upcoming state and national elections and how we can cut through the noise of all the TV ads, mailings, and social media nonsense.

Countering Culture & Defining ‘Born-Again’ Christian

Words are meaningless without clear definitions. When we misrepresent the meanings and definitions of important words God uses in Scripture, all sorts of problems result including professing Christians being either ignorant or deceived.

This morning Mike and David look at eye-opening Barna Research from 2017 that shows the deeply-held beliefs of those who profess to be born-again Christians. We will compare what people believe to what the Bible teaches us about God and the Christian worldview. The results range from interesting to staggering.

In our first segment we check in with Tina Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, to look the ways secular culture, Hollywood, and television are poisoning and destroying the morality of our children.

The War on Truth, Facts and Reason

Truth only comes from God because He knows all things past, present and future, and according to His Word He is incapable of lying.  And if our pursuit of truth has any genesis but God we can easily be deceived.  Today we cover three stories about how facts, reality, and truth is being subjected to man’s opinions and agenda.

We look at the agenda behind the last minute attacks by liberals on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, reiterating our ongoing concerns about movements like “MeToo” being taken too far and used as political weapons to silence opponents of the Liberal Movement.

Then we turn our attention to the professing Christian Church in America, where it seems truth is becoming a more frequent casualty of eloquent, ear-ticking mega-church pastors with their own agenda.  In his apparent quest to create doubt about God’s Word, you will never guess the next attack on the Old Testament being engineered by Andy Stanley.  It seems Stanley is leading to rewriting the gospel to say something like “Jesus loves you and you are going to heaven so forget about anything God said in the Old Testament…Jesus replaced all the laws.”

Questions and Comments from Listeners

Rather than list many of the questions and comments this week, let’s sum them up this way:

Comments and questions discussed on today’s podcast include an overwhelming response to the current Willow Creek Church/Bill Hybels scandal. Over all listeners who sent in questions or comments on the issue, over 90% are opposed to the Willow Creek Association and Global Leadership Summit, and many have addressed their concerns with their pastor.

Some have already left their churches if it continued to be a part of the Willow Creek Association, while others plan to ask their pastor about it to see how they justify partnering with an organization having so many unbiblical approaches and teachings. In our experience, when confronted about WC, most church leaders double down and refuse to acknowledge the problems.

A few listeners mentioned politics and the fiasco the Senate hearings have become regarding Supreme Court nominee, Bret Kavanaugh. Someone also brought up the difference between being a Christian and a conservative which are often used interchangeably. 

Another Christian couple wants to know how to strike a healthy, biblical balance in the home as campaign season is already upon us. One spouse is more active politically wanting to be salt and light in culture and the other just wants to pray and vote as God leads without getting immersed or frustrated with the political process.

The others we had time for today mentioned the importance of believers knowing and appreciating the Old Testament. Also, a new believer who asked about the parable of the Sower in Mark chapter 4 and does it refute the “once saved always saved” doctrine.

The Onslaught of Darwinism, and Attacks on Franklin Graham

As public education increasingly replaces the truth of God’s Word with the theories of men, students are often subjected to dangerous schools of thought aimed at getting them to conform to a secular worldview. IN order to do this, they must necessarily abandon the biblical worldview. Nothing affirms this better than the way Darwinism is taught as truth rather than theory, even though science continues to confirm the Bible’s account of creation.

Tim Foutz of Ratio Christi Ministries joins us this morning to equip us with the truth to refute Darwinism and evolution, helping us prepare our children for the deception bombarding them in public education.

We also look at the continuing discrimination and persecution of anyone who professes to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Franklin Graham, scheduled to speak at a rally of 30 Christian Churches in England, is facing fierce opposition from Muslims, government officials in England, and even from some LGBTQ affirming churches calling on the government to revoke his visa to come to England and preach.

15 Biblical People You Need to Know

Mike and David welcome back to the program, Pastor Randy White, as he shares some fascinating insights about people in the Bible that we may not be aware of. By the way, the list of 15 people we need to know includes saints, sinners, judges, a prostitute, and the world’s first humanist and advocate for a one world government. Check out the podcast!

Segment 3: In their passion to block another conservative Supreme Court Justice who is pro-life, Senate Democrats brought in a female Methodist Church pastor to testify against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It is understandable that Americans are divided on Supreme Court nominees, but Christians should not be. It is heresy to claim Jesus would support a woman’s right to abort her child because, “Jesus would advocate for a just society that allows people to live their lives to the fullest.” Apparently that advocacy does not apply to the life of the child hanging in the balance in a mother’s womb. And of course her opinion is backed up by twisting the words of Jesus to say something that was not intended at all.

The Pressure to Conform

Children of this younger generation face enormous pressures to conform to the ways of this world that many of us never imagined or had to deal with. They are being taught that at the very least they should be accepting of any and all behaviors, lifestyles, and morals, and even approve of anything but Christ (ABC). In many cases, they are being pressured to conform to unhealthy lifestyles or be ostracized and labeled a hater and bigot.

Today, Mike and David look at more studies that have come out documenting this pressure to conform to the world – along with a few scientific studies pointing out the dangers of gender dysphoria and the media’s attempts to hide the findings from the public by reporting an extremely unbalanced (LGBTQ-approving) side of these stories.

Joining us to discuss this increasing pressure on young people is Tina Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, a conservative Christian activist who helps parents guard their children against the deceptions and evils of this secular society.

The Garden of Eden Is A Real Historical Place

Today’s guest is Pastor Carl Gallups with a brand new book out: Gods of Ground Zero. He explains the importance of the Garden of Eden and how it is related to the holy mountain. Gallups points to the pivotal chapter of Genesis chapter 3.

Much of the real message of the Garden of Eden has been adjusted over time. Think of the eternal ramifications of that truth. Literally everything wrong with the world and our own personal lives, as well as the continual deluge of filth that you read in today’s headlines is directly linked to the Garden of Eden. Why is it then that we so frequently insist upon turning that vital chapter into an almost childlike bedtime story?

Mike and David also cover more of the disturbing trend of demonizing anyone who dares uphold a biblical view of sexuality. This time, Chicago Cubs’ pro baseball player, Daniel Murphy is coming under fire for comments he made back in 2015.

Listener Comments & Questions

Here are some of today’s Listener questions/comments:

How long will we in America elevate man’s teachings over God’s Word?
Those who don’t know Scripture well end up following people like Andy Stanley
Are some pastors really keeping their followers ignorant of deeper things of God’s word?
My husband and I are struggling with our church of 11 years whose leadership is committed to Bill Hybels and the Willow Creek Assoc. We’re divided on whether or not to leave. Any advice?
Catholics are hurting over the priests sexually abusing children, and many are hurting. This may be an opportunity to reach them with the true gospel.
The Roman Catholic Church’s extensive history of abuse, coverup, and hypocrisy.
Does social media play into anorexia and bulimia?
It is idiotic to want plastic surgery in order to look better in your selfies. What causes this warped thought process?
Can you explain the difference between a fornicator and an adulterer, in other words is lusting in the heart truly considered adultery?
There is a huge difference between “bashing the church” and confronting and exposing error.
Can you clarify Paul’s teaching in Romans 13 about submitting to governing authorities?
For those who say division is always wrong, how about the Reformation?
I’m a former Catholic and used to trust the church (institution) over God’s Word. Any advice on how to engage Catholics in discussions about Scripture and true doctrine?

Order vs. Chaos

God is a god of order. Satan is a master of chaos and the prince of this world. Christians are called to be light and salt to the world. How do we as disciples of Jesus Christ navigate this life in an orderly, biblical fashion when the world thrives on chaos and confusion? Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss this challenging dilemma.

Questions, Comments, and a Call from Angry Listener

It’s Friday. There are always so many good questions and comments to get to, so her we go.

My daughter is 16 and wants nothing to do with church anymore, even though we raised her in church, the word, and prayer at home. She claims Christians are hypocrites and I fear she will be lost when she goes off to college.
I hear more Scripture in one hour on your show than I hear in a month coming from our pastor on Sundays.
Other than in Christ, is there any hope for our children and grandchildren to have a good life in such a dark culture driven by a godless, postmodern education system?
I am a “classical liberal” (not modern) but the primary reasons I vote for Republicans is they are pro-life and support free market capitalism.
Over the last several decades, we have been informed of how anti-Christian the progressive public schools are and that our children are being indoctrinated. Why is this not a bigger issue that Christians still send their children to such a hostile environment to be “educated”?
I am disappointed by your statements regarding the Ford/Kavanaugh allegations. You assume Kavanaugh is innocent, I believe Dr. Ford. Three people know the truth: Ford, Kavanaugh, and God.
The left doesn’t even know what “civil” means anymore. Their fruit is the opposite of truth: double-speak, hypocrisy, and often, outright lies.
I am a Christian and have supported the Democrat Party all my life, but cannot do so any longer. They are willing to destroy people to gain power. I was also supporting the killing of innocent children through abortion.
The #MeToo movement is causing many parents to be concerned for their sons in the future. We should raise sons of high moral character and integrity, but what about our daughters? They will be affected by this one-sided movement as well but I believe this should be a two-sided conversation in our society.
From that Barna survey you read, it sounds like many “professing born-again Christians’ are false converts that trusted an empty gospel of life enhancement.
I wish we would rethink denominations within Christianity. They seem to divide and do more damage than good, and often produce “fake Christians” – and impediment to true Christianity.

The Growing Complexity of Freedom of Speech

The constitutionally protected right of freedom of speech and expression used to be a pretty straight forward issue. But with the advent of social media, corporate “branding”, and a society that is easily offended it has become a much more complex issue.

This morning we look at a couple stories that point out the new reality facing us in a society that claims to value freedom of speech but is becoming increasingly intolerant of any view that opposes a humanistic, God-hating agenda.

In our first segment Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss the challenges we as believers face in sharing the gospel with people currently blinded to the truth about God. Jay will discuss a common question we hear from people who doubt God’s existence: “If God created the universe, who crated God?”
