Randy White: A Balanced Approach to a National Crisis

Today more than ever in history, America and the world needs theologically sound, Bible teaching churches, but they are more the exception than the norm. People need to see faith-centered, healthy responses to the coronavirus and government mandates during this time and always.

Will the church in general use this current pandemic to love our neighbors, preach the hope of Jesus Christ, and minister to those in need – or will we follow the crowd and hoard toilet paper, hand sanitizer, guns and ammo? The worrying world needs to see the power of God in believers lives that have been transformed by the renewing of our minds.

This just might be an answer to prayers for the repentance of our nation so let’s consider the very real possibility of a national revival and expect God to move.

Matt Trewhella: Abolish Abortion, Ignore Roe, Defy Tyrants

Since Christianity affirms the humanity of preborn children, and that abortion is the murder of preborn children, why is it still legal in America? Sharing the gospel and making Jesus known must be top priority to those of us who claim the name of Christ, but should we not aim to end one of the greatest human miseries and moral evils ever to be entrenched in our world?

Today’s guest believes human beings are created in the image of Almighty God, the Creator of the universe. The weakest and most helpless among us have been subjected by this wicked culture to our acceptance of legal, and systematic destruction of life. We are simply attempting to answer the question: What does Christianity look like in a culture that practices Child Sacrifice?

Dave Daubenmire: Suing NFL, Pepsi for Super Bowl Halftime Show

A small number of concerned Christians are speaking up, and that includes today’s special guest, a former Ohio high school football coach and current online Christian talk show host who was offended by the onslaught of debauchery displayed last month during the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime show. He’s working on suing the National Football League for its soft porn show that included a “strip-club” routine. 

TODAY’S GUEST – Dave Daubenmire is a former football coach and ordained minister in central Ohio and host of Pass the Salt Ministries’ web show, Coach Dave LIVE. Daubenmire is looking to take on the NFL, Fox and Pepsi in a lawsuit over what he calls a “crotch-grabbing” performance resembling soft porn during family viewing hours.

Chris Quintana: Politics, Pelosi, Trump, and the Middle East Peace Plan

It’s the debate that won’t go away: should Christians be involved in politics? This just leads to more questions. What do you mean by “involved,” and what issues do you say are political? What issues do you say are moral? And what about the so-called separation of church and state? 

What about pastors and church leaders? Should they discuss politics and government – and should they do it during church services? (some of you gasp!) After all, like we discussed yesterday with Julaine Appling, someone’s morality will be legislated and our government is supposed to be of the people and for the people. Then there’s the confusing question of whether someone can follow Jesus and support Donald Trump. Wait, what?

But it’s hard not to notice the downward spiral of morality in what is often referred to as our post-Christian culture. This doesn’t necessarily mean the church is dead and gone, but all polls and surveys pretty much confirm the fact that Christians are not effectively influencing government and society any longer.

TODAY’S GUEST – Pastor Chris Quintana joins us to look at recent events in America and Israel through the lens of Scripture. Lots of “P’s” to tackle today: pastor’s perspective, politics, Pelosi, and peace plans. Chris is the senior pastor at Calvary Chapel Cypress in California.

Pastor Landon Churchill: True Revival Starts with Us

Most of us recognize the increase of moral relativism goes hand in hand with the decline of Christianity in America. Repentance and revival are needed today more than anytime in our history! But how much time do we have? Revival starts with you and me – in our hearts. But first of all, if you are not a Christian, you can’t even be revived because you must first be “vived” or made alive in Christ.

Pastor Mike Abendroth: Bring All Things Back to the Word of Truth

Today’s discussion is centered around the importance of context when reading and applying Scripture. Context is a safeguard for us, and will prevent us from reading our preferences into the text or ‘Americanizing’ hand-picked Bible verses.

It all comes back to God’s Word. This is our foundation built on the solid rock of Jesus Christ, the Cornerstone. No matter how much the world and culture change; Jesus Christ is the same and God never changes! We must guard against the lies of the enemy and stop allowing cultural trends and false teachings to influence the church.

Jan Markell: An Upside Down World – Signs of the Times

“God doesn’t shake the entire globe very often. He did during the time of Noah and at the Tower of Babel. There was a terrible plague in the 1300s and a pandemic in 1918. Two world wars took a stunning toll. But now an unseen enemy—a virus, no less—has created fear-driven chaos, and some unknown factors are causing people to embrace a worst-case outlook for the world. At this time, we don’t know how this plays out. It certainly has apocalyptic implications.” – Jan Markell, today’s guest

Steven Bancarz: New Age Influence in Christian Churches

All across North America, Christian churches have unknowingly encouraged occult beliefs and practices far removed from what the Bible teaches. This unfortunate reality is intrinsically linked to the popularity increase of New Age spirituality in the twenty-first century, and we’ve been so influenced by its integration into our society that we have become blind to recognizing, and preventing, the effects of this mainstream, pop-culture heresy, even within the walls of God’s house.

Today’s guest is former New Ager, Steven Bancarz, founder of the apologetics website, Reasons for Jesus, and co-author of the best-selling book The Second Coming of the New Age.
