Shea Houdmann: Got Questions? We Have Answers.

The internet is a spiritual battlefield. Cults, false religions, and other pseudo-Christian groups have websites as well. Some of these sites perform much the same function that we do. The answers these sites provide are often unbiblical and lead searching people down a false path—potentially to their own spiritual destruction.

TODAY’S GUEST is Shae Houdmann, founder of Got Questions Ministries, seeking to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ by providing biblical, applicable, and timely answers to spiritually related questions through an internet presence.

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?

Fear of the Lord

Born-again believers and disciples of Jesus Christ have been saved and granted eternal life with God through our belief and faith in the gospel and Jesus Christ.  Yet we are told in God’s Word that we are to have a “fear of the Lord” even as believers.  We are also told he is our “abba Father” and that we can approach His throne with confidence.  So what is a correct “fear of the Lord” in the life of a believer?  Mike and Crash tackle that listener question today.They also discuss the dilemma of professing Christians still believing abortion is OK with God; financial scandals in Christian Churches and ministries; when is it time to leave your church?; the dilemma of so-called “Liberal Christianity”.

Shane Idleman: A National Emergency? Fear Vs Faith & Thanksgiving

Pastor Shane Idleman says there’s no plan B and America needs revival! “Change will only occur when there is a strong conviction of sin, accompanied by genuine faith, humility, and repentance… [to pastors] We must stop confusing God’s patience with His approval, open churches and preach with conviction from the pulpits again.”

Patrick Wood: Masks Do More Harm Than Good; Study, Testimonies

Another study finds that masks do not effectively protect people from viruses. In fact, more evidence suggests masks cause more health problems, especially among children! We address religious freedom and how speech and liberties are being censored and infringed upon.

For Christians, these are the most prophetic times in world history. In America, we’re seeing an unprecedented push by globalists and the left to weaken or even take down this nation. They now know the Covid crisis can be used to implement many of their agendas.

JB Hixson: Deceivers and The Spirit of Anti-Christ

JB Hixson says, “We are living in the greatest time of deception ever. This is biblical. There is a direct correlation between the Spirit of Anti-Christ, Covid-19, and the U.S. election chaos.”

But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. (2 Timothy 3:13)

When Truth, Justice, and Morality Leave the Media

Who can you trust anymore to provide fair, true, and unbiased news reporting and factual information? Certainly not the left-wing media in America because for all practical purposes, they have become ideologically-driven and are against the Christian worldview.

David often refers to today’s so-called “journalists” as either the Democrat media or liberal media activists. The topic of fairness and bias should be important to all of us, which is why today’s guest, Chris Jossart decided to write a book on the topic.
