More Division and Dysfunction Within the Church

Today we look at an important controversy within a Christian denomination. This is a legitimate controversy over an important doctrine: predestination. Does God predestine certain people for heaven or hell? Doesn’t man have a choice to confess, repent and submit to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior? Southern Baptists are grappling with this crucial question as New Reformed Calvinism makes an impact on many members of the denomination.

In our first segment, we check in with Tina Marie Griffin, the Counter Culture Mom to discuss dangers to our children in television, movies, music and video games. Topics today include virtual reality, the need for more Christian movies and video games, Facebook censorship, and a stern warning about one of the godless, offensive prime time TV shows. Also, were there satanic images in the background of the Super Bowl halftime show?

Seeing the Big, Eternal Picture Around Us

So many distractions and obligations fill our time these days it is easy to fail to see the big picture when it comes to history, societies, and agendas being fulfilled all around us.

God has a plan for this world and every person. Jesus Christ will return one day to rule for eternity and judge the eternal souls of every human being, and nothing Satan does will thwart God’s plan. But that does not stop Satan from trying to deceive people by convincing them that we can plot our own future and eternity, apart from God’s will and plan. And with each passing year Satan is setting the stage for the rule of his puppet, anti-Christ, through complicit people and earthly systems.

Our guest today is Patrick Wood who has written books and developed resources to help people see the big picture. He is a born-again believer exposing the globalist movement and he shares some thoughts about what is happening to us both behind the scenes and right under our noses. Historically, the powerful and most influential have moved away from God, and he touches on the elitist Bilderberg group, Darwinism, Fabianism, Rockefellers, and the Trilateral Commission.

A Stumbling Block to a World Serving Satan

President Trump’s proclamation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has set another prophetic wheel in motion to show the world’s hatred for Israel, just as the Bible foretold. And the influence of Satan on world leaders and governments is slowly bringing the world to the final stage where all nations will stand in opposition to God.

One sign of just how blind people of this world have become is the acceptance of Islam as a “religion of peace” in spite of its history and leaders calling for death to Christians and Jews along with anyone who opposes Muslim domination of this world. Europe, through increased Muslim immigration, is slowly turning into a war zone where non-Muslims are attacked and “Sharia Zones” are being set up including “No Go Zones” where police won’t even enter. Despite these developments, Europe’s leaders lack the courage to admit their mistakes and the grave dangers they have put their citizens under.

And even here in the U.S. we see Christian Churches opposing Israel and refusing to see Islam for what it is: a socio-political, economic system wanting global domination and using a false deity to advance its goals. Meanwhile, millions of Muslims risk eternal separation from God because we as Christians lack the courage and wisdom to share the truth of the gospel with them.

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer, joins us this morning. Elijah travels the world speaking to persecuted Christians and educating pastors on how to understand and combat Islam.

Standing Against the Tide of Moral Relativism

We profess to know the truth of Scripture and yet too many people seem to be less than certain about the very nature and origins of humanity. Satan is the father of lies and author of confusion, and in this darkness we find ourselves debating history; not only the creation of the universe, but whether or not God even exists.

Many believers agree Jesus is God forever, but the things of this world pull us away from our pursuit of His will. As a result, we choose to focus on the here and now which is part of the problem. Due to our lack of priorities and indifference about the culture war, we have allowed godlessness and relativism to advance.

Barna Research surveyed Americans last year on moral absolutes and found only 35 percent of people believe moral truth is absolute. The conclusion? “Christian morality is being ushered out of American social structures and off the cultural mainstage,” and this results in the broader culture trying to fill the void.

Consensus Thinking and its Devastation on America and the Church

There has been a slow and subtle shift over the past few decades on how Americans think and discern truth from deception. Supported by public education and a media bent on telling us what they think we need to know, more and more Americans act like lemmings perfectly willing to follow the “Pied Piper” right over the cliff to self-destruction.

Our nation has become one lacking in biblical morals and principles, caving in to political correctness at every turn. Homosexuality and transgenderism is now acceptable to a majority of Americans along with an increasing number of professing Christians as the Bible is increasingly presented as the antiquated writings of man instead of the inspired Word of God.

How can we identify the dangers of consensus or group thinking and continue to use rational thought? John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio joins us to look at how consensus thought has infiltrated our society and how we can combat it, standing strong on the eternal truth of God’s Word.

Five Big Deceptions, Listener Comments, and Church Security

There can be little doubt the LGBTQ movement has gained both momentum and power in America and sadly, within too many churches. Now with the transgender part of the LGBTQ being rolled out, the Left is winning the battle for the public square in part by having successfully shaped public opinion over the past several decades. It’s interesting this directly correlates with a growth in biblical illiteracy and an increasing belief that the Bible is not the inerrant Word of God.

Today we discuss five of the biggest deceptions being perpetrated on Christians and the American people by transgender movement.  Since most media, government and public education caved to political correctness and increasing pressure from the LGBTQ camp, these lies and delusions are now repeated so often that most simply accept them as being true.

The majority of today’s program – as it is each Friday now – is dedicated to your comments and questions from the week on a variety of topics. And no subject is off limits.

The Spirit of Antichrist

1 John 4:1-3: “Beloved do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.”

Matter settled: Islam is a spirit of antichrist because it denies that Jesus is God in the flesh…so why are so many professing Christians believing that Christians and Muslims worship the same god?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer sheds some light on this deception.

In our final segment we look at the continuing hypocrisy of the left regarding freedom of speech and religious expression.

Dialectic Thought and Brainwashing

The “founding father” of godless Marxism, Vladimir Lenin said “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sewn will never be uprooted.” He did just that in the Soviet Union and tens of millions died at the hands of the Communist regime.

Now fast forward to modern America where our youth have been subjected to decades of Marxist influence and propaganda through government schools and a media whose political leanings and world view line up far closer to Lenin than those who established our nation and Constitution.

How does the world’s greatest nation slowly crumble socially, spiritually and morally? Unlike the Soviet Union who underwent a violent revolution, America is dying a slow death because our people have forgotten how to critically think. We have fallen for the deception of the dialectic process.

How do our Christian Churches abandon the inerrant Word of God and fall for humanism and self-worship? The dialectic thought process: a covert but effective means of brain washing.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has researched and studied the dialectic process for years and joins us this morning to discuss this subtle form of brainwashing infiltrating our nation and even many churches.

Did You Ever Imagine These Things Could Happen?

The response to our Listener shows on Fridays where we talk about your questions and comments has been overwhelmingly positive! It’s been great hearing from so many Christians every week, but is has now reached the point where we have continually been unable to get to all of the comments in a one hour Friday show. This has been a consistent pattern over the last several months and we typically carry them over to the next week. So in our second segment today, we will take some additional time to read your comments and answer your questions.

First, we will listen to and discuss a thought-provoking message from Jan Markell of Understanding the Times Radio titled “I Never Thought I Would See the Day.” This program just aired over the weekend across the country. We’ll also share our thoughts on the events and happenings in our lifetime that have been disappointing or shocking.

Tomorrow we will continue with YOUR comments and questions about: Billy Graham, gun control, Christian marriages, transgenderism, the political divide, Roman Catholic “last rites,” and believers being unequally yoked – to mention a few!

Religious Freedom Update, and the Death of Billy Graham

God’s Word instructs parents to raise their children based on His Word and principles. But as our beloved nation strays more and more from God there is a slow but steady movement to limit the free speech of Christians and raise our children as citizens of the world, void of Christian values. Through federal legislation supporting the United Nations’ attempt to indoctrinate our children, we are seeing the authority of parents undermined at every turn.

This morning we look at a few chilling court cases that underscore the agenda to indoctrinate our children and usurp parental authority over them. In our first segment we are joined by Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute to look the continuing attacks on Christians in America. Are we on the brink of losing our freedoms to raise our children in the way of the Lord and live by our Christian values?

We also touch on the breaking news of Billy Graham’s death. He passed away this morning at 99 years old.

Addressing the Growing Crisis in Public Education

Last week, an expelled student known for erratic behavior and run-ins with police returned to his former High School in Florida and murdered 17 people. Predictably, the liberal media’s primary message and solution is “more gun control”—a simplistic response to a complex crisis. Rather than looking deeper at the spiritual, it is made a political, Democrat vs Republican issue, which I believe is irresponsible.

Instead of taking the time to understand the underlying causes for these tragedies, liberals continue to blame guns–inanimate objects that only do what the person holding them makes them do. Why does the left spout this continuing response to violence? Because the only alternative is to acknowledge that sinful man can be evil—a direct contradiction to their liberal and often atheist beliefs.

So what can be done? Dr. Randy White joins us to discuss public education issues as well as some possible solutions. Then we’ll tackle the latest fad hitting higher education in our nation: White privilege.

Worldview Matters: Truth or Consequences?

After thousands of years of constant attacks, opposition, and intense scrutiny by critics − warfare that no other work has ever seen − the Bible has withstood the onslaught, has gained credibility, and the Christian faith has continued to thrive throughout the world. Why?
No other written work has the power to convict people of their sin, the ability to change human nature, and offers a permanent solution to man’s greatest problem.

Consider the uniqueness of the Bible: a record of God’s message to His creation, miracles, history, an honest assessment of evil and the heart of man, unique claims, a plan of salvation, and a specific description and vision of the end times.
