We kick off another year with a church and country that are divided over so many issues. Religion and politics continue to be lightening rods of debate across the nation, but to say Christians should keep our faith behind closed doors or out of politics is both naive and misguided.Read More

It’s Friday! That means we hear from you about things the Christian community are concerned about. Comments and Questions discussed on today’s program:
Keeping an eternal perspective during these challenging times
Calvinism creeping into more churches?
Public school lunch and breakfast programs
The pornography epidemic and its affect on children and its dehumanization of women
Is “conservative Christian” just another word for Nazi?
Was Pastor David Platt wrong in praying for President Trump at his church – or – was he wrong to explain why (apologize?) to his congregation?
Sharing the pain and trial of cancer can be a blessing in disguise?
Can a person be truly saved and still attend Catholic Church and hold to its beliefs and traditions?
Tension between the United States and Iran are growing and many fear a war might be inevitable, as the U.S. opposes Iran’s quest for nuclear weapons that they have stated they would use to wipe out Israel. As the world looks on through the lens of their world view we as Christians try to understand these events through the prophetic lens of the Bible, which warns us of upheaval and wars as the enemies of God oppose Him and Israel in the final days.
Pastor and best-selling Author Carl Gallups is a student of biblical prophecy and joins Mike and Crash this morning to share his perspective on the tensions between Iran and the U.S and Israel. How do we as disciples of Jesus Christ pray and prepare for what might lie ahead?Read More
The economy in our nation is doing well and many Americans feel life is pretty good. But there are storms brewing that might threaten to bring more chaos and division to our nation as the underlying social and spiritual fabric of our nation spirals downward.
Democrats seem intent on getting rid of President Trump regardless of the cost, tensions in the Middle East are ratcheting up, and Americans have never been more anxious. Our leaders are unable to set aside their lust for power long enough to address the growing crisis in our nation including the level of political angst and anger. And we have a Christian Church that seems to be dividing right down the same ideological and political lines.
The student of Biblical Prophecy is not surprised at these events, but it does challenge us on how to live as Christians in a decaying culture and world that is aligning itself behind the coming Anti-Christ who will directly oppose God.
Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministry joins Mike and David to look at the coming political, social and spiritual crisis.Read More
Mike and David visit with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project to discuss the controversy around aging televangelist Pat Robertson calling Christians who believe in a Young Earth “an embarrassment.” They also discuss the growing controversy in a few circles that are now claiming perhaps the Earth is flat after all. Really.Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear suggested recently that Christians who support President Trump might be “winking at sin” to promote their political agenda. As expected he is receiving some push back for his statement. What did he mean? And how about liberal Democrat Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand claiming that protecting babies in the womb (being pro-life) is not the Christian thing to do!Read More
Where can we get the truth about attacks against Israel? Are they provoking these attacks? In the last 24 hours, more than 600 rockets have been fired at Israel from Gaza. The death toll is rising. And it seems what often makes the news is when Israel retaliates. The U.S. is moving a powerful naval armada into the Middle East to send a strong message to Muslim nations should they consider attacking Israel once again.Israel and specifically, Jerusalem is at the front and center of end times biblical prophecy, yet a growing number of Christians are ignorant of its importance or about God’s promises to protect Israel even in the midst of their rejection of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.Pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups has studied Bible prophecy in depth and written several books about the rise of false gods in these final days, culminating with the coming temporary reign of Anti-Christ.Read More
Today’s guest is author, pastor, and radio host Carl Gallups. He offers some solutions to the confusion about political issues and biblical issues Christians should be informed and concerned about. We discuss the Midterm election results, the spin of the liberal media, and the “migrant caravan” – how Mexico’s systems are being overwhelmed near the border.
In segment three, Mike and David discuss an article on the open agenda of Nancy Pelosi and the liberal Democrats to eradicate religious freedoms of Bible-believing Christians in America. No joke.Read More
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.
Our worldview is the starting point for how we judge facts and truth. How we view the world affects our decisions and actions. From a biblical perspective, Christians see things through the lens of Scripture. What we’re witnessing in America today is the result of two opposing worldviews on a collision course.
The battle comes down to those who trust and believe God’s Word and those who trust and believe man’s word. These are incompatible. Two entities that cannot coexist are children of the devil who are hostile toward Christ, and children of God who represent the light of Christ and His truth.
Today’s guest is John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio. John weighs in on the calculated and chaotic Senate hearings on the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh and the Marxist underpinnings of progressives that drive them. The questions is how does the average American citizen see this government and liberal media fiasco?
We also discuss what’s happening in China with the apparent alliance of the Catholic Church and Communist government. What about the heavy-handed LGBTQ lobby and American government and how they might be locking arms with the liberal, emergent church in the U.S.? On both continents, is the faithful, conservative, traditional Christian church in trouble or will it thrive?Read More
It’s the Listeners Show where Mike and David tackle your questions and comments from this week (… and a few weeks prior that we could not fit in). Here are some of the questions and comments from today’s program.
Is it a sin to not have children if there’s a serious risk of birth defects?
What are “biblical conjunctives”?
Legalism in the church
I disagree with you on prosperity and healing
Christians should not support President Trump
Why aren’t more believers equipped to disciple and do ministry?
Why do you have guests on your show who are Calvinists, then have other guests who are anti-Calvinists?
My pastor says all you guys do is bash the church, but he can’t give me specific examples
Should a large church cater to new visitors, particularly in its Sunday sermons?
Shouldn’t Charles Stanley refute the heresy that his son Andy Stanley is teaching?
Our church brought in a consultant who helped set up a “Leadership Model” following the Willow Creek example to carry out the pastor’s vision. Sadly, we are leaving this church immediately.
Why aren’t more believers equipped to disciple and do ministry?
So many comments and questions and comments and so little time! Every Friday, we talk about what our listeners want to talk about – and we love it. It’s great to know what’s on your heart. We do our best to discern truth from error and apply the wisdom available to us from God to current events and cultural debates. Here are some of the topics you want to discuss this week:
Church discipline, globalism, social justice
How far will the left go to obstruct Trump and his Supreme Court nomination?
Is God still sparing America to a degree?
Are Catholics who claim to be pro-life and vote Democrat being hypocritical?
Normalizing transgender individuals, gender confusion
How can new believers grow up and mature in the grace and knowledge of Christ?
Has liberalism become mainstream in many churches?
What caused regional church division in 2010 when Jim Wallis spoke at Lifest on the main stage?
Is there one deception you think is the most dangerous?
Believers are told to know the truth, and hold fast until the end so we will not fall for strong delusions, but few would deny the rapid decline of discernment in the church today.
The gospel must be preached without compromise to those who are perishing or they cannot be saved. We know the truth of Christianity is not popular today and the world would rather turn to Satan and eventually, the anti-Christ for solutions to the crisis coming upon the earth.Read More
Boys and Girls are different. Fifty years ago we wouldn’t have to clarify what we mean by this or defend this simple truth. And yet, there is a clear agenda by the Left, including Hollywood and the media to downplay masculinity. Gender roles and distinctions are being blurred at best and erased at worst. Is this by design, meaning, is there an agenda against men and boys?Read More
As our culture heads further away from God, it makes sense that more people are also rejecting truth. This often leads to attacks on those of us who believe in and who represent the God of truth. Are Christians equipped to respond to the false accusations and charges of hate? Is your family prepared to deal with the daily battles?
TODAY’S GUEST – Author, pastor, and apologist, Juan Valdez of Reasons for HopeRead More
God speaks very clearly in Scripture on the subject of human life and the value of the unborn. It’s quite confusing why some Christians are still open to exceptions on abortion and others are proudly pro-choice. Even science and biology provide evidence for human life in the womb.
We know at conception, a person’s complete DNA is present – separate from the mother – and we know when a baby’s heart starts beating, when their organs are developed, and that babies can feel pain in the womb at 20 weeks. But today, we’re looking closely at the issue of rape victims and their children.Read More
There’s so much happening in our world, country, and culture today it’s hard to know where to start. We cannot possibly tackle all the tough, controversial issues, but we sure can address some of the most recent news stories that affect our lives, our children, or churches.
David and Crash go through a few dozen news items of interest and strive to offer a balanced, Christian perspective to what’s going on today. As always, trust the Lord Jesus, make the Word of God your solid foundation, be discerning and understand the dark days we find ourselves in.Read More
