Gathering Storms of War in the Middle East

The Bible teaches us that in the final years before our Lord’s return there would be a large, destructive war against Israel by her enemies.  Could we be witnessing the stage being set for the final chapter of Earth’s history before the Lord Himself returns to judge mankind and establish his everlasting kingdom?

Gary Kah of Hope for the World joins Mike to discuss the events that seem to be pushing the world one step closer to the return of our Lord and Savior?

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.

Vishal Mangalwadi has been called one of India’s foremost Christian intellects.  His latest book is titled “This Book Changed Everything” chronicling the Bible’s amazing impact on the world.

Friendship Over Truth?

There’s an old saying, “politics makes strange bedfellows,” but these days professing Christianity, government, and worldliness also seem to be aligning more often, developing very strange partnerships.  We’ve seen so-called “Celebrity pastors” often embrace Hollywood stars or elite sports celebrities who claim to be Christians, but they often do so without a modicum of discernment or wisdom, causing more confusion in a a church that is confused enough already.

In our final segment today we look at a resolution passed by the Democratic Party that applauds “non-religious Americans” while disdaining Christian churchgoers. Our guest today is Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach. He joins Mike and David to discuss how friendship seems to be more important than truth to a growing number of Christian leaders, and how heresy is on the rise in the church itself.

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.

The Spiritual Side of Radical Liberalism

It would be a tragic mistake to think that the seismic lurch to the far left by radical politic leaders in our nation is either temporary, isolated or without spiritual motivation.  Rather than a political movement, radical Liberalism is part of a movement bent on uniting the world around global humanism, turning our backs on God.  And the Word of God warns us of this tragedy as Jesus prepares to return to judge the nations.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins Mike and Crash today to discuss how the radical liberal movement in the U.S. is tied to godless globalism, and how Christianity is its number one threat and target.

Are We Being Conditioned to Hate Each Other?

The Bible tells us the one thing that should distinguish God’s people from the world is our love of Him and one another.  We are taught to not only love one another as Christians, but to forgive our enemies, pray for them, and never respond to hatred with hatred.  We are to be a unique and holy people, separate from the ways and teachings of this world.

But that is not what Satan and this world wants.  It is taunting us, hoping to provoke us toward anger and hatred, so they can say that we Christians are just as bad as them.  Once the light of the world is neutralized what is to stop the world’s march toward evil?

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins Mike LeMay and Crash Connell this morning to discuss how we are being conditioned to hate rather than love, and how we can avoid this trap.

The Deception and Dilemma of Progressive Christianity

Our nation is seeing an infusion of radical progressive thought threatening the very foundation and future of our nation.  The Church in America is also witnessing a surge in hyper-liberalism leading many to question the fundamental and traditional teachings of the Apostles and early Church.  Is Progressive Christianity to be considered a part of Biblical Christianity or does it contradict Scripture?

Your Comments and Questions

We get to tackle many of your questions and comments every Friday. Here we go!

Books being read to kindergartners about Islam
Why don’t more Christians pitch in and serve at church?
Love how Stand Up challenges and encourages us at the same time
Eternal security – (once saved, always saved?)
Is President Trump’s Middle East peace deal naive?
Should an unbeliever be allowed to lead or serve on the church worship team?
The radical liberals seem unwilling to be tolerant and carry on any civilized conversation anymore.
Our new, young pastor knows little about theology and does not have sound doctrine, but he learned it in seminary and doesn’t think the Bible is inerrant.
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?

The Great Tribulation & Return of Christ: Matthew 24

Three times in this sermon alone, Jesus mentions false teachers will deceive “many.” Also, the utter destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem was a prophecy, not a “sign,” it was a judgment of God on the Jewish people for rejecting the Messiah. Persecution often reveals traitors within the Church as well as enemies outside, and the test of any age is endurance. Those who endure to the end will be saved and the gospel must first be preached as a witness to the nations, then comes the end.

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.
