A Confused and Lost Generation?

The human mind, created beautifully by God but corrupted by sin, is subject to believing lies are truth if the lie is reinforced often enough.  Today’s generation of young people have been continuously lied to by Hollywood, the media, and a public education system that denies the glory of God. Too many are being indoctrinated into a life of futility and hopelessness because they are looking for meaning and security everywhere except God and His Word.Tyler Geffeny of Ratio Christi Ministries speaks at conferences and churches worldwide challenging and equipping Christians to become better biblical apologists to reach young people with the hope of Jesus Christ in a world that leads many to pursue self gratification.  Tyler joins Mike and David to discuss current trends and the agendas the church is up against, especially in the American university system.

America’s Battle for the Soul of Institutions and our Society

Institutions in our nation and around the world are going through monumental change.  We are seeing governments, media, education, businesses, political parties, and sadly even churches embracing change in direction as well as values. John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has studied this metamorphosis and the worldview behind the decline, and joins us to discuss the changing fabric of society and its institutions.  How should we as disciples of Jesus Christ understand and respond to this caustic progression (regression?) around us?

Biblical Manhood and Cultural Christianity

This morning we look at two serious problems facing the Christian Church in America.  First we look at Dr. Tony Evans’ thoughts on why and how Satan is seeking to destroy biblical manhood in order to bring chaos into society.  Then we look at a pastor in Florida who has written a book tackling the problem of “Cultural Christianity”, calling it out as a “completely different religion” from Biblical Christianity.  Is the professing church in America our greatest evangelism field these days?

The Abyss of Public Education

God’s Word tells parents to raise their children by teaching them His Word.  Believe it or not, the government-run education system in our nation actually started off using God’s Word as a foundation for teaching children about life. But over the past 50 – 75 years it has declined and shifted dramatically, focused now on raising them to be good “global citizens,” and be politically-correct and support the liberal worldview. Public schools today have an anti-Christian agenda, having completely set aside the Bible and Christian worldview.Mike and David look at how all evidence points to the fact the public education system has now become an enemy of God, and how parents can counter its destructive effects on our children.  We discuss the Marxist agenda (Antonio Gramsci) and the steady, progressive march through America’s major institutions – starting with academia. As a result, Globalism is being implemented while discrimination against Christians who dare question the status quo increases.  And when Christianity is removed from education or any part of our culture, other religions and lies are welcomed and promoted to our children.

Education Matters: The Battle For Truth

Satan and this fallen world has an agenda to conform us into its image.  God also has an agenda. Disciples of Jesus Christ are to be transformed into His image in thought, word and deed.  Obviously these are mutually exclusive agendas, so it’s difficult if not impossible to find a compromise between these conflicting agendas.  Today we look at one of the powerful tools the enemy uses to advance his godless agenda: public education.  Mike and David are joined by Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project Media and the Dr. Duke Show to see how government-run schools and progressive universities are putting the squeeze on anyone who does not conform to its humanist views.We discuss the  sad but not surprising news from the U.S. Senate vote Monday in which Democrats refused to even recognize that a baby surviving an abortion is entitled to life and medical care.  We also look at the decision made yesterday by the divided United Methodist Church regarding its stance on same-sex marriage and LGBTQ clergy.

Comments, Questions & Answers

Mike and David read your questions and comments, but open with a commentary on the disgusting actions of the State of New York that will kill more babies and American Christianity’s collective cowardice in standing up for the lives of unborn children.

When “The State” thumbs its nose at God and proudly passes a law that will murder more children created in the image of God, and American Christianity Churches continue in their ringing silence and failure to stand up for those children, is the “church” becoming part of the problem rather than the solution?

Pastors: Shepherds and Watchmen? Or CEOs and Cheerleaders?

Today, Mike and David continue to look at an article titled “Why is Christianity Failing in America?” We look at the role of pastors, comparing the duties laid out in God’s Word against the modern trends of American Christianity. If many of today’s pastors have become cheerleaders and CEOs instead of teachers and watchmen and protectors of the ‘flock,’ is it because we as narcissistic people prefer it that way? Do we prefer a church where we are assured of how wonderful we are instead of being challenged to grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ? Does modern American Christianity feed the flesh, or challenge us to pursue holy living

In our first segment, we visit with Aaron Marshall of Ratio Christi Ministries to discuss the challenges of campus ministry when many colleges are trying to squelch Christian ideas, values and free speech.

Are We Losing an Entire Generation to the Enemy?

As public education, media, and government have become clearly opposed to God in the preceding decades, we have reached a point in time when Christianity has gone from the prevailing belief system in our nation to one that is under intellectual assault at every turn.

Our children are immersed and indoctrinated by a public education system and entertainment industry that claims to offer them hope and truth when in reality, it is leading them to confusion and hopelessness. Yet many of us are concerned that the Church, which should be a beacon of light and truth set apart from the despair of this world, is actually being conformed to this world instead of being set apart from it.

This has been the result of rampant biblical illiteracy among a growing number of professing Christians that actually believe Jesus sinned while He was on earth. And if we believe Jesus actually sinned, what does that say about our belief in who God is and what He expects from us who claim to be His children?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project travels the world defending the faith, talking about the truth of God’s Word and how we can combat the propaganda and lies being spread. Much of it comes back to the Genesis account in Scripture. Jay joins us this morning to talk about the state of biblical illiteracy infecting American Christianity and the effects it is having on young people—the future leaders of our nation and churches.

A Shift in Educational Priorities

The traditional purpose of education was to give children the basic skills they would need in life to grow into productive members of society, and able to earn a living. But we have seen a slow but dramatic shift in what education looks like over the past few decades. To some the focus now seems to be a sort of political indoctrination of our children, touting globalism and progressive ideals at the expense of teaching our children how to critically think and make their own decisions. This shift in priorities presents huge challenges for the future of our nation. When students only learn one side of an important argument how will they be equipped to deal with problems and opportunities that arise in a rational way? Dr. Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project Media and the educational, informative Dr. Duke Show, join us to discuss these challenges.

Listener Comments & Questions Every Friday

Here are some of the topics and questions discussed today:

If we are no longer under that law, why do Christians teach that some parts of the law still apply while other parts do not apply?
What was Paul saying in Romans 14:23 when it states, “whatever is not from faith is sin?”
There are many aspects to taking one’s own life, but what is the right way to view suicide?
As a Californian, we are very concerned about the direction of our state and country. With the spread of apostasy we all need to be watchmen on the walls even more today.
Advice for Christian parents of a teenager that refuses to go to church.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg needs Christ and she should also step down. We are to pray for our enemies and for unbelievers, but at what point do we move on and wipe the dust off our sandals?
As Christians in the godless nation of Canada, we appreciate your ministry. It seems America is about 10 years behind us as we continue down the path of secularism.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s gracious concession speech and Scripture he shared should remind us of God’s sovereignty and the fact our purpose as Christians doesn’t change regardless of change in occupation.
Since our nation abandoned God’s principles, I am actually glad our nation has slid into socialism because it is helping us see who are the true and faithful Christians and churches, and which ones are selling out to man.

Blaming Everyone but Ourselves: Where has Personal Responsibility Gone?

We live in the growing era of triggering, snowflakes and safe spaces.  Most young people are being indoctrinated into the belief that their opinion or worldview is the only valid one and anyone who dares question them is a threat.  It all goes back to Adam, who when confronted by God about his sin blamed Eve and God Himself for his poor choice.

In our final segment this morning we look at an interesting perspective by David Hoffman at the Christian Post, claiming that all the confusion in society and the church is perhaps God’s way of beginning to separate the wheat from the chaff spoken of in Matthew 3:12 by John the Baptist.

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to look at what the Bible says about personal responsibility and how taking responsibility for our own beliefs and actions is healthy for us as Christians.
