The Deception and Dilemma of Progressive Christianity

Our nation is seeing an infusion of radical progressive thought threatening the very foundation and future of our nation.  The Church in America is also witnessing a surge in hyper-liberalism leading many to question the fundamental and traditional teachings of the Apostles and early Church.  Is Progressive Christianity to be considered a part of Biblical Christianity or does it contradict Scripture?

Growing Acceptance of Marxism in Churches

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.

Dr. Duke Pesta on the Politically-Correct, Intolerant Education Culture

Some of the topics we discuss with Dr. Duke Pesta include a taxpayer-funded, “free” breakfast & lunch program in public schools, a liberal college bullying a local bakery, a Christian pastor under fire – from students – for mentioning his faith in a commencement address, Teen Vogue instructing 16-year olds on how to obtain an abortion without their parent’s permission, a new social media platform ant Twitter alternative (Parler.com) that will not censor Christian and conservative voices, AND, the probability that U.S. taxpayers will soon be on the hook for billions of dollars of unpaid student loans.

The Cult of Modern Liberalism

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.”

Media Refuses to Report on Christians Being Slaughtered

The media did their job by reporting on the horrific mosque attack in New Zealand last week where fifty were killed, but the ongoing mass slaughter of Christians does not fit the liberal media narrative. Persecution is at record levels – but we’d never know it. And thank God if you live in America where religious freedoms are still a protected right – for now. Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ being persecuted around the world.

Sexuality as a Gift From God

Sexual intimacy between a man and his wife are a great gift from God. This relationship is a human representation of the deep intimacy Jesus wants with His bride, the church.  When a man and his wife are sexually intimate there is a deep physical, emotional and spiritual bonding that God blesses.

But as Satan often does, he takes something beautiful from God and twists it to deceive people. Today, rampant sexuality has led to destruction and disaster: abortion, broken marriages, divorce, and sexual brokenness and even gender confusion.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins Mike and David to discuss the beauty of biblical sexuality and the snare of sexual sin that has led to dramatic moral decline in our nation.

The Changing Role of a Pastor

Vibrant, bible teaching churches are needed more than ever but are so very hard to come by. We need wisdom, biblical knowledge and understanding of God. We also need to show our nation the dangerous path we are on as a nation and people.  But many churches seem intent on conforming to the ways of this world instead of transforming lives by the power of God’s Word.  At a time when we need clear biblical direction we seem to often be lacking in in a growing number of churches.

It usually starts with leadership – pastors who preach the Word and set the example for the flock.  Our guest, Pastor Randy White, joins us to discuss how pastors are being educated and influenced in today’s Christian Seminaries and Bible Colleges, and why that needs to change if we are going to see a true spiritual
l revival in the church and our nation.

Would You Give Up Your Life for Christ? Persecution Update

In spite of all the violence in America, and a growing hatred for God and His Word, we are still very blessed as Christians to be Americans because of the religious freedoms we have.  That could be changing. But we have not yet suffered to the point of torture or death for our faith in Jesus Christ.

The same cannot be said for millions of Christians suffering around the world, whose very freedom and life are in danger because of their faith in Jesus Christ.  Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs joins us to look at our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world who remain faithful to Jesus despite imprisonment, torture and even martyrdom.   Will we be as
faithful to Christ if and when it comes to our shores?
