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.Read More
John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has witnessed and addressed the attacks on both our churches and our nation by radical ideologies and movements, and joins Mike and David to discuss the many challenges our nation and Christian Churches face today.
We start with a promise from Jesus: the gates of hell will not prevail against His true church. But there has been compromise and complacency as well as enormous challenges facing the professing church in America. We’re seeing a decline in many denominations and church attendance, the growing influence of secular humanism within many churches, and the increasing threat of discrimination and eventual persecution.
Paul says in Romans 8:37 that we are more than conquerors through Jesus, but we seem to be raising the white flag of spiritual and cultural surrender. Could that be because we are conforming to this world and changing the eternal message of the gospel to fit our human understanding and prejudices?Read More
Studies show a majority of younger people now approve of socialism, and one reason is the public education and liberal media portray it as something good. How else do you explain its modern popularity? Instead of the human utopia it is presented as, it is actually godless government control leading to communism. Socialism is used to imprison the very people who call for it, and force worship of government above God. Curtis Bowers has produced eye-opening, award winning documentaries on how socialism and “social justice” have even crept into the philosophies of the American church. He joins Mike and David in segment 2. In our first segment, Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council joins us to look at the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court election and its possible impact on abortion and religious freedom.Read More
In Mike’s latest book, “American Christianity’s Slide Toward Apostasy: What We Must Do Before It’s Too Late”, he details Satan’s five step plan to bring forth persecution to Bible-believing Christians in America. Spoiler alert: Satan has already accomplished four of the five steps, and step five is knocking at our doors!
We can see how this unfolds when looking at Communist China, where there is a state-sponsored Christianity that is forced to worship government instead of God, and an underground church that is being persecuted frantically. This morning, Mike and Crash contrast two stories from China: The Vatican selling out to Communist government officials and secondly, an underground Christian Church pastor whose home was just ransacked with him being hauled away to prison.
And we continue to look at how Christianity in America is being set up for a similar crossroad. Which churches or denominations will sell out to government and submit to it, and which will be driven underground and persecuted?Read More
In our final segments we cover a story of a Christian pastor who kicked a person dressed in drag out of his church in the middle of the service, and the backlash he is receiving on social media.
In our lead story we look at the political polarization of America, which has never been greater. In the past both parties agreed on what needed to be done while sometimes disagreeing on how to implement the vision, but today the gulf of ideas between Conservative and Liberal values is so great many feel they are irreconcilable. Some believe we are headed toward another Civil War.
We look at an article by Selwyn Duke of “The American Thinker” that paints a grim picture, giving evidence and warning to a coming political Civil War that will change America permanently. If our nation is indeed headed to a Civil War between Conservative and Liberal ideas what will be the outcome and how will it affect Christianity in America?Read More
Mike and David welcome back Pastor Andy Woods and discuss his latest book, Ever Reforming: Dispensational Theology and the Completion of the Protestant Reformation.
We briefly review some past church history and why a reformation was necessary, as well as the fact that even the reformers were not perfect. But God completes the work He begins in His true church.
We touch on what Dr. Woods refers to as the Middle East Meltdown and identify the players in the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy. The prophet Ezekiel foresaw these things 2,600 years ago in a vision along the Chebar River in Babylon. How important is the role of Turkey in the end times as well as world history?
Mike and David also talk about the absolute economic collapse of Venezuela’s economy and society due to the massive failures of socialism.Read More
We tackle several key issues today and do our best to look at everything through the lens of Scripture. With the political debates intensifying, Christians conforming to the world, and the liberal media fanning the flames of division, what do you think will happen with the process of President Trump’s Supreme Court nomination? Does spiritual warfare play into this at all or is it just politics? And what about the alliance between the United States and Israel?
Pastor Carl Gallups is back with us today to comment on some of the most prophetic times in world history – including borders, immigration, Israel, and America. What does the Old Testament teach about Jerusalem and the holy land? Also, how many of the policies of the Trump administration get favorable reviews of informed Christians? This and more on today’s podcast.Read More
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.Read More
In 2008 Barack Obama ran for President on the promise of “fundamentally transforming America.” I remember at that time criticizing the press and many Christians who were supporting him for failing to ask “Mr. Obama could you please define ‘fundamental transformation’”? But rather than take the time to explore what this transformation would look like people just wanted change, and Obama went on to serve 8 years as our President.
Well it is 10 years later and we have experienced what President Obama meant by fundamental transformation. Our nation took a severe left turn toward secular humanism, socialism and globalism. But the American political system has a way of correcting itself and making adjustments when the nation veers too far left or right. Donald Trump shocked the world by becoming President and it has been quite the ride since then.
But has the nation drifted so far toward humanism and socialism that it is beyond correction? Have Americans become so used to “Big Brother” taking care of us and telling us what to do and believe that we are on an irreversible course? And most importantly has America so offended God by our blatantly anti-biblical policies on abortion and marriage that His wrath is being stored up for our destruction as a nation?
I am joined this morning by John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio. For decades John has been warning people of the dangerous slippery slope America and the Christian Church have been sliding down. Can anything be done to reverse this slide toward total debauchery and globalism that will one day enslave everyone? And if inevitable how do we as Christian stand strong in the midst of a world that hates us because it hates the One we worship—Jesus Christ?Read More
The Bible warns us that one day Satan would seek to control humanity and this world through his pawn the Anti-Christ. And with the rapid advances in technology and the deceptive propaganda of globalists through issues like “climate change” it seems we move closer each year to buying the lies and walking ourselves into captivity.
This is a multi-faceted problem with many tentacles: Indoctrination through education and media; lies about the dangers of climate change; a government with representatives more interested in personal power instead of serving and leading; and a society fascinated with new technology that says it will make our lives easier and more productive. And you can add to that a professing Christian Church in America that ignores or dismisses biblical prophecy.
We are joined this morning by Patrick Wood who has studied and written on what is called “technocracy”: a move toward global domination by a handful of intellectual elites.Read More
If Jesus rebuked many of the early churches for straying, leaving their first love, putting up...Read More
SEGMENT 1: For too long, too many people think of abortion as merely a “political” or a “social” issue”. Some suggest it only falls under the category of privacy: a woman’s medical decision “between her and her Doctor”. But the reality is we are talking about life or death for an innocent baby created by God in His image.
Wisconsin Right to Life is one of the most prestigious, efficient pro-life organizations in our nation. Mike and David are joined by Heather Weininger, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life to discuss pro-life issues as well as the September 24 Green Bay dinner reception for the Veritas Society.
SEGMENT 2: YOUR COMMENTS AND QUESTIONSRead More
There can be no doubt the rules of cultural engagement for Christians is changing rapidly – especially as we attempt to share our faith and live our lives. Just the mere mention of the Bible or the word “Christian” conjures up accusations of being an intolerant bigot, homophobe, and hater.
What do we do as Christian witnesses who are instructed to be salt and light in the world?
Today Mike and David take a comprehensive look at the controversy surrounding New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees who is being criticized from all angles over his recent support of the national campaign, “Bring Your Bible to School Day” (Oct. 3). Brees also responded to the criticism he received from cultural bullies and LGBTQ advocates as well as the Christian Community.Read More
