A Liberal Conundrum

Today we point to a story that exposes the hypocrisy of many liberals these days. What do the people that preach “tolerance” do when they run up against a religion that really does oppress anyone that disagrees with its doctrines? This morning we look at a mess Starbucks Coffee faces in Indonesia and Malaysia, heavily Muslim nations.

In our first half hour we are joined by Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio. Some of the topics we will address include the teaching of the eternal security for the true believer, something called the “sin of presumption,” and the challenges of raising Christian youth in the Church.

Abandoned Faith: A Lost Generation?

There have always been problems with communication and understanding between generations. Every younger generation that comes along is viewed with skepticism by more elderly generations. But the gap in communication and understanding between today’s millennials and older people is in some ways like nothing we have ever experienced.

While it might be easy to just think they’ll grow out of it, it is important to understand that this younger generation faces serious challenges many of us have not faced; and they been raised in a public education system and media presence that has caused them to become skeptical about life as a whole.

We’re joined by a Christian apologist, researcher and author who has studied millennials extensively: Dr. Alex McFarland. He has written a new book Abandoned Faith: Why Millennials Are Walking Away and How You Can Lead Them Home, about the questions and struggles of millennials and how we can reach them with the truth and hope of Jesus Christ.

Ground Zero on the Attack on Biblical Christianity

There are no shortages of attacks on God’s Word these days. The Bible warns us that in the latter days many strange beliefs would be presented as truth and many would fall for the deception just before the Lord’s return. But is there one central theme of false teaching that is most ominous? We believe there is: Humanist thought and beliefs that replace God’s doctrines with man-made doctrines; I wrote a whole book about this. The central theme of sinful man and his fall from God’s grace was that our beliefs and desires are more important than God’s.

In our first segment we discuss the incredible promotion of gender confusion in our society and we look at one sad story of a Christian parent who has decided to support her four year old son’s supposed desire to be recognized and raised as a girl. Is gender transition a reality? Or a lie planted by the enemy to confuse people and draw them into Humanism: Self worship? In our second segment, we touch on religious freedom and the Johnson Amendment, as well as the reaction to President Trump’s executive order yesterday protecting religious liberties for all Americans.

The Cesspool of American Culture

If you are old enough to remember life in America in the 1950s and 60s, you would remember the culture of entertainment was much different back then. You could actually watch television with your children without fear of them being bombarded with messages of perversion, violence, and overt sexuality. And you also trusted your public school to actually teach math, science, and history without indoctrinating your children into believing evolution, becoming little earth muffins, hating America, or being encouraged to explore sexuality in ways contradictory to biblical morality. As they say, those were the good old days.

But today our youth are inundated with sexual perversion and godless worldviews at every turn. It is a sad reality that the influence of parents wanting to raise their children with Christian values has become more and more difficult.

Joining us to discuss the filth that passes for entertainment, and the blatant systematic brainwashing of our children is Tina Marie Griffin of Counter Culture Mom.

Willow Creek Pastor Bill Hybels to Retire; Names Successor

Founding and Senior Pastor Bill Hybels has announced his retirement effective October, 2018. He will remain as “founding pastor” and oversee the expansion of Willow Creek’s Association that provides services and resources to churches and also the Willow Creek Leadership Summit.

Hybels and Willow Creek are no strangers to controversy. The WC Leadership Summit has elevated people like Bill Clinton, Rob Bell and several corporation executives as “leaders to emulate” even though many of them are not even Christians and support homosexual marriage and abortion. Some people believe this is incorporating the ways of the world into the church.

His wife Lynne openly opposes the nation of Israel through “Christ at the Checkpoint,” criticizing Israel while giving a pass to the terrorist organizations who kill in the name of Allah. In typical controversial fashion, Hybels is going out with a bang: he has named Heather Larsen his successor to the lead pastor position having the title of Executive Pastor.

Many of you have weighed in on this so we discuss it in the first segment today and then get to more listener questions and comments.

Trafficking and Profiting from Hate

We have reached a time in America where speaking the truth, no matter how gently done, is called hateful. If you speak out against the facts in the Quran, you hate Muslims. Speak about God’s definition of marriage, and you hate homosexuals. Share what the Bible says about gender being assigned at birth and permanent – even though secular science confirms this truth – and you hate transgenders. Speak up and defend life, and you hate women.

There is big money and power in screaming “hate speech” every time the progressive agenda is challenged or the Bible is referenced out loud. Today, we look at a thought provoking commentary on how the business of hate is consuming our nation.

In our first segment, we check in with Pastor Randy White and continue our discussion on how the Old Testament of the Bible is increasingly overlooked or discarded, even by many professing Christians. Is our growing ignorance of God’s wisdom and proclamations of the Old Testament causing problems in our spiritual growth as Christians and effectiveness as a church?

Fearing God. Exactly What Does that Mean?

Proverbs 9:10 states: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” But what exactly does the Bible mean when it says we are to fear God? Does it mean that even as His adopted children we expect Him to punish us every time we disobey Him? Or that the moment we disobey Him, He will rescind His promise to those who confess, repent and place our complete faith and trust in Jesus Christ?

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss what a healthy and accurate fear of God looks like, and why “the fear of the Lord” is seen as an antiquated belief even among professing Christians.

Gospel Opportunities, Halloween, and Good News in the NFL?

The first century Christian Church was well aware of what God wanted them to do and why they were still in this world. They knew for a fact Jesus was alive and they believed the return of Christ was imminent. They also knew it was their responsibility to share the gospel with as many people as possible in the hope they would repent and accept forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ. And while many were wrong about the timing of His return, their passion for the gospel led many into the eternal Kingdom of Heaven.

Here’s a heart check for us: how is our level of passion and commitment for the gospel? Do we understand the true purpose God has us in this world? Or is it more about finding God’s “special purpose” for our lives these days? If we truly believe what the Bible teaches, that people who do not surrender to God and submit themselves to the lordship of Jesus Christ will spend eternity separated from Him in hell, then why are we so timid about sharing the good news with our family, friends and neighbors?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss why Christians seem afraid or are hesitant to share the Gospel. We also look at #GreenBayPacker’s quarterback, #AaronRodger’s broken collarbone from a spiritual perspective, knowing God allows things to happen in our lives to bring us back to Him.
