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?"

Postmodernism & America’s Failed Education System

Alarming things are going on behind the scenes in public education that many parents have no idea about while many others are too busy to care. Since the 1960s, the system has flipped on its head. Political correctness and postmodernism have ruled American education to the point that by the college level, there now exists an intolerance of opposing views if students do not support liberal ideology and the progressive left. Hostility toward Christianity has been cultivated for decades as well. Today, Mike and David welcome back a very busy, Dr. Duke Pesta, host of the new Dr. Duke Show. Also in studio, we have first time guest, Katie Petrick, Freedom Project Media contributor and co-host of the Dr. Duke Show. From Pre-K through graduate school, the Dr. Duke Show will keep you informed about the highly politicized world of modern education, alerting you to the dangers facing our republic under God due to generations of under-educated and wrongly-educated students. You can watch the Dr. Duke Show live ‘On Demand’ every Thursday at 2 pm Central time or on Freedom Project.com.

Listener’s Show: Your Comments and Questions

Here are some of the topics addressed today and questions our listeners asked: Could you please expand the discussion a little more on the Parable of the Sower/Seed mentioned last week? What does the expression, "the issue is never the issue" mean? Not sure I agree this nation is trending conservative than it appears in culture and politics How can any Democrat Christian continue to vote for their party after the disgusting display in the Senate hearings on Justice Brett Kavanaugh? It's hard to believe Bill Hybels and Willow Creek Church promoted hyper-progressives such as Corey Booker as examples of good leadership. Please elaborate on yesterday's discussion about the agreement between the Vatican and Communist China, and is this where the Christian Church in America could be headed? I think the Roman Catholic Church will be joined by the Protestant and Evangelical churches coming together under the guise of "unity" to form the one-world religion that will support Anti-Christ. Why are the books of Maccabees in the Catholic Bible but not in the Protestant Bible? What on earth is with the Burning Man festival about other than a mix of New Age, humanism, environmentalism, occult, and a blending of a few other religions? With America's foundations of God, truth, creation, and the Constitution crumbling, it is no wonder young people want nothing to do with today's splintered Christian church.

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.
