Questions and Comments from the Email Bag!

Thank you so much for keeping us busy! On Fridays, we read your comments and answer your questions from the week, always reminding you to prayerfully check everything you hear with the perfect, eternal Word of the living God. 

Some of the topics we discuss this week include:
Liberal theology and prosperity preaching infiltrating the church, ignorance about Islam in America, Christian college students struggling with liberal, secular professors, the latest apostasy of Jim Wallis and Sojourners, does implementing church security mean we don’t trust the sovereignty of God?, pastors that avoid teaching from the Old Testament, our interview with Tony Gurule of ratio Christi Ministries on Sharia Law, a listener from England concerned about political correctness and the growing Muslim population
the conundrum within the Southern Baptist Convention.

Selective Social Justice

The outcry against sex trafficking is growing and rightly so, and more awareness must be raised on this issue. These tragic stories need to be reported on as every year, tens of thousands of young girls and boys are being kidnapped and conditioned for sex slavery, prostitution, or pornography. Who could possibly get in trouble for exposing sex trafficking? Apparently, a person who exposes radical Islam over in England is guilty – for standing outside a courthouse reporting on it. In our final segment we will discuss the story of conservative activist Tommy Robinson who has been imprisoned for his campaign to expose sex trafficking in England, often being run by Muslims there.

First up, we check in with Pastor Randy White to discuss Satan, Job, and ‘Heavenly councils’ as spoken of in God’s Word. You might be surprised to hear who is still a part of these councils and what he is up to these days. Pastor White also warns us about the growing ecumenical movement that threatens to water down the gospel of salvation.

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.

Christian Alternatives to Public Education

It is pretty clear what Christian parents can expect if they send their children to government-run schools. Whatever basic Christian worldview their children have will be challenged and probably mocked, that is, if other kids find out they’re Christians. There’s also a very good chance that by the time they head off to college their children will want nothing to do with the Christian faith.

There are alternatives. Why send your children to reputable Christian schools or take a step of faith and homeschool? But many parents are intimidated by what they perceive to be a tremendous commitment of time or money needed for homeschooling their children.

We discuss a new Christian Home School Organization to offer assistance to parents who choose to home school their children. We talk with Andrew Pudewa, director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing, who is very involved in the advancement of quality homeschooling. He will be speaking at the Wisconsin Homeschool conference April 20-21 in Milwaukee.

In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss the recent election of a liberal Wisconsin Supreme Court justice. We also address disturbing trends we see in government, as well as a dangerous ordinance in Milwaukee that will prevent Christian churches and counselors from helping young people who are confused about their sexuality or gender identification.

The Cesspool of American Pop Culture

In previous generations, children could just enjoy being young and relatively carefree. They were able to actually go outside and play and put off until later the responsibilities and pressures of adulthood. But today’s children have not only become addicted to social media, but also political pawns of the left, helping advance the culture of sin and depravity. Hollywood and government schools are submerging young minds into a world view that directly opposes God and His Word.  In the coming years, as this younger generation becomes adults and leaders in society, we will see the damage that was done.

Tina Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, joins us to expose some of he darkness and look at ways parents can be educated about pop culture and protect our children from a world looking to destroy them spiritually.

And in our final segments, we address the continued censoring of Christian messages on Facebook, and a report of a child being sexually assaulted in a bathroom of a Target Department Store.  Target was one of the first department store chains to allow people to go into the bathroom or changing room of their choice, depending on what gender they “felt like” on any particular day.  Are these stories being covered up at the risk of our children being sexually manipulated and attacked?

Meaningful Christian Living & Evangelism

Rick Warren’s “The Purpose Driven Life” was a best seller that got many Christians searching for God’s “purpose” for their lives. Our guest this morning says searching for our “purpose” is a wild goose chase because once you think you’ve found it the world will change its focus and you’ll end up like those dogs we see in videos chasing their tails while getting nowhere fast and becoming dizzy and frustrated. He says rather Christians should focus on the meaning of our lives–something by the way clearly defined in God’s Word.

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to discuss the difference between purpose and meaning, along with the importance of using Biblical Exposition in evangelism.

We’ll also discuss an intriguing study about how “Generation Z” is the least Christian generation in our nation’s history–and why one Christian researcher thinks that is actually a good thing.

Addressing the Growing Crisis in Public Education

Last week, an expelled student known for erratic behavior and run-ins with police returned to his former High School in Florida and murdered 17 people. Predictably, the liberal media’s primary message and solution is “more gun control”—a simplistic response to a complex crisis. Rather than looking deeper at the spiritual, it is made a political, Democrat vs Republican issue, which I believe is irresponsible.

Instead of taking the time to understand the underlying causes for these tragedies, liberals continue to blame guns–inanimate objects that only do what the person holding them makes them do. Why does the left spout this continuing response to violence? Because the only alternative is to acknowledge that sinful man can be evil—a direct contradiction to their liberal and often atheist beliefs.

So what can be done? Dr. Randy White joins us to discuss public education issues as well as some possible solutions. Then we’ll tackle the latest fad hitting higher education in our nation: White privilege.

Education Issues You Don’t Want to Hear, But Absolutely Must

Today’s program is packed with information Christians and especially parents must hear regarding the school system in America. In this education update, we get the latest from university professor, Dr. Duke Pesta, who shares some practical advice with those considering attending college.

In our third segment today, we go back to the basics: the Bible. Freedom Project is offering a family lecture series and Duke Pesta finishes up the Gospel of John tonight, available on line for free.

Education: Parental Rights, Palestinian Propaganda, and Progressive Politics

You may be surprised to hear some provocative and perhaps controversial statements on today’s program. One reason you may perceive them to be so is the fact that we rarely hear the truth – an honest evaluation of what’s really happening in the education system in America today. My parents were career educators, both having retired in public education prior to 1988, and to be sure, they would not recognize what education has become in the last thirty years or so.

The current state of disarray in American schools today is concerning, but most of us understand we did not get here overnight. If you feel angry or defensive to the point of saying this is not really happening, it may be time to get more informed or involved in the political process which includes your local school board. This is what it really comes down to: parents are responsible for raising their children, and for Christians, that means bringing them up in the knowledge of the truth, in the worldview of biblical Christianity and the morality it teaches.

We are blessed to have Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project Academy back on the program today to discuss the most recent concerns and trends in education. Many Americans have little idea the extent of the leftist agenda including the anti-Christian, anti-Israel, progressive and social justice indoctrination being implemented in America today. Does this sound extreme? Listen to this podcast.

Countering College Indoctrination

It’s no secret that the vast majority of college campuses are filled with radical liberal ideologies promoting Humanism and Marxism, and worldviews contradictory to the Bible. With each passing year, we see our young people being indoctrinated more and more into lies and false teachings that steer them and our nation away from God and biblical morality. This has been going on for decades, and as these young people assume the mantle of leadership in our nation and churches, who knows what the future might hold?

Fortunately, there are committed Christians doing what they can to help university students see the light and truth of Jesus Christ. We speak with two of those believers today, Devin and Melissa Pellew of Ratio Christi Ministries. They are Directors at Ratio Christi’s Winthrop University Chapter, spreading the gospel on campus and helping Christian students maintain a biblical worldview through apologetics.

Risking Your Life and Family for the Gospel

Have you ever thought about how you would react if suddenly you or your family were threatened, demanding you to deny your allegiance to Jesus Christ? And if you’re thinking to yourself, “I would never do that, no matter what,” remember the Apostle Peter said the same thing – and then cowered.

Today, Mike and David talk with a man who was confronted with that horror. Bishop Pervaiz Joseph, a Christian leader from Pakistan who had a good relationship with government leaders there. He was able to share the gospel freely until he was falsely accused of a crime, kidnapped, tortured, and his family was forced to flee to Sri Lanka and eventually to the U.S. His story became known by Voice of the Martyrs.

He started Bishop Joseph Ministries International in December 2016, a non-profit organization, working with people around the globe uplifting communities and spreading a message of Hope, Peace and Love. Joseph, along with his family moved to the United States of America after facing religious persecution in his homeland and stayed in exile for a little over four years. They now run a local Church in affiliation with the Foursquare Missions and connect, build and uplift communities around the world by organizing mission trips, conferences and seminars within various states and worldwide.

In our final segment, we look at a chilling commentary on how youth are being brainwashed and indoctrinated into socialism and atheism by social media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Is There Really a Shadow Government in Our Nation?

There will always be conspiracy theories in every day life. Back in the 1960s there was talk of a “shadow government” that really set the agenda and pulled the strings of government officials, doing the bidding of power hungry globalists. These theories were widely dismissed.

But is the ‘Shadow Government” a reality, and if so, what would it mean for Christians in America? Could it threaten our freedom to worship God and share His Word? Could it one day force us to worship government instead of God, like in Marxist nations?

Author and Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to share his research and thoughts. We will also discuss the strange journey of Pastor Andy Stanley, who has said increasingly provocative things about the Bible over the past couple years. Has Stanley left the camp of solid Evangelical Christianity?

On the Brink of Cataclysmic Change?

You would be hard pressed to remember a time when world leaders faced such a series of important decisions that could lead to world wide war or calamity. Here are just a few things to consider: increased attacks against Israel by Hamas, an Iranian regime developing nuclear weapons; Russia is entrenched in Syria with an eye on Israel; Islam is sweeping across Europe and Asia; and Western nations are arguing about trade and tariffs which could lead to economic turmoil.

All of this is set against the background of Bible prophecy and is happening at a time when the ‘professing’ Christian Church in America and Europe seems to be floundering due in part to apathy, heresy, and an ecumenical movement that puts unity and peace above truth.

This week, a crucial summit is taking place between President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un spurred on by the president’s tough rhetoric against North Korea. Without God’s word as our anchor of hope, we could easily get depressed. But His word is truth and His promises everlasting. Gary Kah of Hope For the World has studied and written about the coming one world government and religion, and joins us to put all this into proper context and perspective.
