Jay Seegert: What on Earth are You Doing?

“A firefighter rescuing people from a burning building may be fearful and prefer to be home with his family, but he ignores his fears and denies himself. Like him, our thoughts are not on ourselves but on the fate of the perishing.” Evangelist, Ray Comfort, Living Waters Ministry

Today’s topic is evangelism, sharing our faith, and the gospel. We discuss reasons to share the gospel as well as why most of us don’t do it. How much of it comes down to our obedience and trusting the Lord? Today’s guest is Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project

The Tragedy and Glory of Death

There is no greater challenge facing man then the reality of his own mortality.  Hebrews 9:27 tells us it is appointed for a man to die once and then be judged.  Death in the physical realm is inevitable; where a man’s souls goes after death is the real issue of eternal importance.

Born-again Christians, if we believe the promises of God, should not fear death…we should actually welcome it.  But we should also have a sense of urgency about death for those who have not placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch joins Mike and Crash this morning to put the inevitability of physical death into proper biblical perspective: encouraging us to enjoy the life God has given us, not fear our mortal deaths, and have a sense of urgency for unbelievers who still fear death.

After Easter: Jesus is Lord and the Gospel must Advance

We are fresh off of Easter weekend as many of us celebrated the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who shed His blood for our redemption.  He has freed us from the power of death and sin.  But with the simple yet profound message of the gospel, many Christians are still often confused about what this life should look like.  Did Jesus die so I could be healthy, wealthy, or comfortable in this life?  Are my physical sufferings or trials a sign of a lack of faith?  If the Bible says Jesus has taken our sorrows, then why do we still struggle with sadness and anxiety?Pastor Randy White joins us to look at the promises of Jesus Christ and how we apply them in correct context to our lives as His disciples.

Does Your Church Look More Like the World?

Mike and Crash continue to look at how a growing number of churches look more like the world instead of standing out against the growing sin and depravity of this culture. As spiritual insanity grows in America shouldn’t the church stand out in contrast all the more? But instead it seems many churches continue to modify their approach to growth by accommodating a growing sinful culture. The ‘gospel’ being preached has been sanded and watered down to the point that it is incapable of rescuing sinful man from the coming wrath of God.

This subtly creeps into the church through programs adopted and exported by churches like Willow Creek and Rick Warren’s “Purpose Driven Church” Model that is secularizing leadership in the church, creating a hierarchy where church leaders go unchallenged as expository preaching transitions into ‘life coaching’ and the gospel is presented as a holy God compromising His standards so that more might be ‘saved.’

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to discuss this sad transition and also take a deeper look at Jesus’ teachings in Matthew Chapters 5-9.

Is a True Believer’s Salvation Eternally Secure?

A couple weeks ago we interviewed Pastor Mike Abendroth on the doctrine of eternal security of the true believer through faith in Jesus Christ.  Some listeners have written claiming our belief is wrong and that the belief in the eternal security of the believer is wrong and dangerous. So today Pastor Abendroth joins us again to address those concerns on this very important doctrine.

We will also talk with Mike about sincere questions unbelievers have about God and The Bible and how the Church has a responsibility to answer their sincere questions honestly, because if we cannot they will find the wrong answers in the world.

Being vs. Having

Too often, we define ourselves by what we own or do, instead of who we are. As truly born-again believers, who are we? Adopted sons and daughters of the King of all creation.

In America however, we often confuse who we are with what we do or what we have. This can lead to confusion and frustration in our lives as we commit to owning more things instead of resting in who we are in Christ Jesus.

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch joins Mike and David this morning to discuss the important and life-changing distinction between what we do and own versus who we are in Christ.

When Church Loses its Biblical Focus

It is interesting and often sad to compare what many of our modern churches look like to the gathering of the saints in the Book of Acts.  The early church had commitment, focus, passion and a deep desire to learn the Apostles’ teachings. They were thankful for every blessing and even trials and challenges God allowed in their lives.  They pursued holiness in a world where their very lives were in danger for following Jesus Christ.  Today in America, the pursuit seems to be geared toward self, comfort, and convenience where we try to fit God into our schedules and our worship. We have divided hearts that want the blessings of salvation but not the responsibilities of holy living.

Pastor Mike Abendroth joins us this morning to look at what lessons and principles we can glean from the book of Acts and the early church. We also touch on Britain’s “royal wedding” last week and discuss marriage, idolatry, secular humanism, multiculturalism.

He Said What?!

In our final segment we discuss more controversial comments from Pope Francis, this time regarding an apparent statement that “good atheists” go to heaven. And one thing that makes them good? Baptizing their children.

With each passing year we see more and more dangerous, incorrect theology infiltrating a growing number of Christian churches and denominations. False beliefs that would have been soundly rebuked a few decades ago are now being discussed within churches. Satan is a master at twisting the truth and appealing to our human emotions and desires, and he is working his plan through perhaps well-intentioned but spiritually naive people.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to discuss this and other recent issues including how we find the correct spiritual balance between God’s sovereignty and man’s free will and responsibilities.

The “New Reality” of Christian Leadership

The Bible clearly warns us that as we approach the time of the Lord’s return that things would get worse and worse. Sin and evil will grow and the attacks on God, His Word and His Church would be magnified.

We had better understand this new reality.

Christianity was once the norm in our society; now it is becoming increasingly hated, scorned and attacked.

In our final segment this morning we look at public allegations against Pastor Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Church, alleging sexual misconduct and improprieties. Are the charges warranted or fabricated to further disgrace the Christian Church in America?

But first we talk with author and Christian Apologist John Stewart about his latest book “In Defense of the Gospels: The Case for Reliability”. How can we defend the authenticity and truth of the gospel against the growing chorus of attacks, reaching the lost with the hope of eternal life with God?

Chris Quintana: Reopening Churches Amidst Virus Fears, Misinformation

Pastor Chris Quintana and David Fiorazo discuss: Church leaders and pastors’ general response to opening up of churches. (Is on-line “worship” a poor substitute for church gatherings, in-person ministry?) Media’s mishandling of COVID 19 reporting and how the Left wants to keep things shut down indefinitely (or at least until November). Christians struggling with fear and conforming to the world; are we losing our influence? A comparison of Chinese Coronavirus and the Hong Kong Flu; and Chris’s recent interview with Doreen Virtue about Contemplative Prayer

Exposing Media Malpractice: the War on Truth

An honest evaluation and pursuit of the truth is absolutely necessary in the Christian life. But in America (and the agenda-driven media in particular), the roots of deception go deep. Absolutes are questioned, history is either forgotten or rewritten, media has lost all credibility, and good people have fallen for lies, broken promises, and identity politics.

We Were Created to Work and Worship!

It’s been well established that work and human interaction is vital to our overall health. Quarantines aren’t supposed to be for healthy people. Walmart, Costco, Target, and Home Depot are crowded. Does one of the most important liberties in the U.S. Constitution cover corporations and abortion businesses, but it doesn’t apply to churches and small businesses? I understand we want to obey governing authorities, but civil government does not have unlimited authority!

Abortion businesses have also stayed open – because in our “civilized” society, those in power determined it is essential to have access to murder your unwanted offspring. But the right to freely and peacefully assemble with those we love in the comfort of our churches is denied.
