As American Christianity generally bends over backwards to be seen as “loving” to the world, we have seen secular culture extend its influence within the church. From the social justice movement to the powerful LGBTQ lobby, we see more and more churches accommodating things of this world directly contradictory to the Bible. And now, with another presidential election on the horizon we are seeing an enhanced push for the church to embrace something that is directly opposed to the Bible: Marxist Socialism.
Mike and David look at the growth of socialist ideals within professing Christianity and why this is ominous and dangerous to the church.Read More
Wednesday, we aired the first hour of a conversation with former muslim, now born-again evangelist/missionary Elijah Abraham and Apologist Jay Segert of The Starting Point Project when they were in town for our Watchman Conference. Today, this tough conversation continues. Mike and our guests discuss the challenges and the possible future of “organized church” in America.Read More
Why does all this matter and why is it dangerous? Political liberals are one thing; we know exactly where they stand; But religious liberals have infiltrated churches across America and have deceived many. These men (and women) generally believe many of the same things as extremists on the left, and yet claim to be “Christian.”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
John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has witnessed and addressed the attacks on both our churches and our nation by radical ideologies and movements, and joins Mike and David to discuss the many challenges our nation and Christian Churches face today.
We start with a promise from Jesus: the gates of hell will not prevail against His true church. But there has been compromise and complacency as well as enormous challenges facing the professing church in America. We’re seeing a decline in many denominations and church attendance, the growing influence of secular humanism within many churches, and the increasing threat of discrimination and eventual persecution.
Paul says in Romans 8:37 that we are more than conquerors through Jesus, but we seem to be raising the white flag of spiritual and cultural surrender. Could that be because we are conforming to this world and changing the eternal message of the gospel to fit our human understanding and prejudices?Read More
Every Friday, Mike responds to your questions and comments. Here are some of this week’s topics: Abortion, Pro-life laws, Reformation movement, 4 Questions to ask unbelievers or even “professing” Christians: Who is God? Who is man (before and after salvation)? How can sinful man be reconciled to God? What is the proof you are reconciled to Him? Freemasonry, Contemplative prayer Will we know our friends and family in heaven? Bill Johnson, Bethel worship, signs and wondersRead 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
Islam is a false religion of very strict laws and teachings. Adulterers and homosexuals are punished severely and women are treated as second class citizens or at times, treated as property. This directly contradicts the laws of our nation and is completely incompatible with the platform of the Democrat Party that celebrates homosexuality and transgenderism and touts radical feminism. Yet the radical left embraces Islam at every turn, and if it reaches the point Sharia Law is imposed in America, even far left followers could be thrown in jail or possibly even killed for being “infidels.”Today, Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now disciple of Jesus Christ, joins Mike and David to discuss this as well as the “Islamization” of Europe and the pending Middle East Peace Plan that President Trump will be introducing next month. Is peace with Islam really possible?Read More
Today we visit with Pastor Mike Abendroth and discuss the blood of Christ and the redeeming gospel. We touch on the meaning of Jesus Christ as the only Mediator between God and man. We touch on the abuse of grace by some as well as the Book of Hebrews, the sacrificial system, and Sabbath rest.Read More
Today we take another look at the state of Christianity in America and discuss the real hostility and discrimination against believers in Christ, as well as the possibility the gospel may soon be banned in our nation. We discuss the so-called Equality Act and its threat to Bible-believing Christians, and explain how the church itself has practically opened the door to welcome discrimination against God’s truth and the gospel. Why? Because we want to be loved by a world that hates Jesus and His Word.Read More
The only way to dismantle lies is to respectfully confront them with truth. We try doing this on our radio program when it comes to lies not only in our culture but sadly, within churches in America. Our guest is a professional ‘lie-debunker’ and travels around the world sharing the hope of Jesus Christ with people deceived by the clever deception of the enemy.
Today’s guest is Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministry! He’s back to talk about their video series titled “debunked” and the impact it is having in spreading the truth, love and grace of the gospel.
“…but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15Read More
Pastor Carl Gallups joins Mike and David to discuss an article from the Christian Post speculating on what healthy American Churches will look like ten years from now. We start our discussion on this topic assuming we will not yet face open persecution for our Christian beliefs ten years from now. What kind of changes will we see in strong Christian churches in America?Read More
Recently, we’ve received more listener questions on the 500 year old topic of Calvinism vs. Arminianism. Is this debate necessary and productive? Or is it becoming a source for self-righteous condemnation and hatred of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ? Is it important that we understand election, predestination and who is called before we can accept the gift God has given us through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ?
Also mentioned: why not taxpayer-funding for adoption rather than abortion? Mark of the Beast, word of faith theology, when does worship become entertainment, biblical marriage, and the persecuted church.Read More
