Will America Experience Another Civil War?

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?

Supreme Court, Israel, Spiritual Warfare, and Hating Trump

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.

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.

Can America’s Slide Toward Godlessness Be Reversed?

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?

Satan’s Globalist Pawns

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.

Consensus Thinking and its Devastation on America and the Church

There has been a slow and subtle shift over the past few decades on how Americans think and discern truth from deception. Supported by public education and a media bent on telling us what they think we need to know, more and more Americans act like lemmings perfectly willing to follow the “Pied Piper” right over the cliff to self-destruction.

Our nation has become one lacking in biblical morals and principles, caving in to political correctness at every turn. Homosexuality and transgenderism is now acceptable to a majority of Americans along with an increasing number of professing Christians as the Bible is increasingly presented as the antiquated writings of man instead of the inspired Word of God.

How can we identify the dangers of consensus or group thinking and continue to use rational thought? John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio joins us to look at how consensus thought has infiltrated our society and how we can combat it, standing strong on the eternal truth of God’s Word.

Dialectic Thought and Brainwashing

The “founding father” of godless Marxism, Vladimir Lenin said “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sewn will never be uprooted.” He did just that in the Soviet Union and tens of millions died at the hands of the Communist regime.

Now fast forward to modern America where our youth have been subjected to decades of Marxist influence and propaganda through government schools and a media whose political leanings and world view line up far closer to Lenin than those who established our nation and Constitution.

How does the world’s greatest nation slowly crumble socially, spiritually and morally? Unlike the Soviet Union who underwent a violent revolution, America is dying a slow death because our people have forgotten how to critically think. We have fallen for the deception of the dialectic process.

How do our Christian Churches abandon the inerrant Word of God and fall for humanism and self-worship? The dialectic thought process: a covert but effective means of brain washing.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has researched and studied the dialectic process for years and joins us this morning to discuss this subtle form of brainwashing infiltrating our nation and even many churches.

When Objectivity Sells out to Blatant Bias

Media has historically been referred to as the “fourth leg of our republic” because of its ability and past willingness to accurately report news and uncover hidden agendas within government. But what happens when the media decides to drive its own agenda instead of reporting news? The abortion worldview is one that is defended and promoted via most media outlets either directly or indirectly. Many feel we are seeing the results: a hard left turn toward progressive ideology and socialism in our nation.

Joining us to discuss bias and agendas within the media is Katie Yoder, Associate Culture Editor of Media Research Center. Has responsible journalism permanently left the building within mainstream media? Yes.

Biblical Submission to Authority

This morning we discuss an important biblical issue that just goes against every fabric of our sinful, rebellious nature: submission to the authorities in our lives. In many ways America is an interesting paradox. We are a Republic governed by the rule of law—yet we came into existence by rebelling against the laws we were under (from England).

In our first segment we look at a disturbing story of how bad things can get when young people are not taught respect and to honor authority. A decorated Green Bay School Teacher recently resigned because student behaviors were so bad that her very life and health was in danger. And we discuss the sad irony of this fact: teachers facing anarchy from students when their own teacher’s union used to recommend they read and emulate Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals so they can learn how to undermine political authority over them. Are we headed straight to the brink of anarchy in our nation where there is no authority or order?

What about us, professing Christians, are we honoring the authorities in our lives as the Bible instructs? Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss the biblical mandate of honoring the authorities God has placed in our lives as believers.

The Growing Hatred Against Biblical Christianity

Jesus clearly warned His disciples that the world would hate them because they hated Him first. His statement was true in the first century church and is truer than ever in the 21st century. This morning we cover a couple news stories that show just how far that hatred has gone.

One liberal columnist now says Christianity is “white supremacy disguised as religion”. And a woman has developed a new “LGBT Bible App” promoting “inclusiveness” within the church.

We also check in with William Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition to discuss the plight of Christians in Iraq and Syria, and how Marxism has infiltrated American and even Christian thought.

Listener’s Show: Your Questions and Comments

Here are some of the questions and comments from this past week:

The large company I am applying for proudly supports the LGBTQ agenda and contributes to related causes. I was excited about the opportunity before I learned this, but now am conflicted. What do you think?
My daughter just told me she is bisexual and I’m in shock. She grew up in church, went to a private Christian school and attends a Christian college. What angers me is the church generally accepts LGBTQ lifestyles now.
Please clarify a Scripture you shared on a recent podcast, 1 John 4:3 about spirits that deny Jesus came in the flesh and are not of God.
You said American Christianity is looking more like Babylon these days than the church Jesus shed His blood to redeem. I sense this as well but could you expound on it please?
Here in Canada, we don’t have anything like your show and the sell-out by the church to government has already happened. Please continue warning Americans!
My husband and I are heartbroken. Our 12 year-old son just announced he is really a woman. We’re completely caught off guard and don’t even know how to confront this.

The Difficulty in Finding a Biblical Church

There are still some sound biblical Christian churches in America; a “remnant,” to be sure. But a growing number look more and more like the world than they do an assembly of God’s called-out people. A difficulty arises when you have been a member of a historically sound church, but it has been in the midst of a transformation where it is adopting the beliefs and values of this fallen world. This gradual shift is often so subtle that you cannot see the drift away from God and toward secular humanism.

Pastor Randy White has studied this trend and joins us to discuss how this drift of the church away from God has transpired, how we can spot it, and how to find a biblical church in a sea of growing heresy and apostasy.

What Happened to My Church?

Many Christians in America are asking that question these days as we see a growing number of churches change. The Gospel of reconciliation being replaced with consumerism and our “best life now”; moves of the Holy Spirit being replaced with emotional manipulation through loud music and fog machines; and churches that look more and more like the world Jesus told us would hate us and that we should hate.

But the changes introduced into American Christianity have been so subtle that many people do not even notice them until one day we suddenly feel like a stranger and alien in the very church we attended for years.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and Understanding the Times Radio joins us to talk about the growing concerns of serious Christians about what they see happening in many of our churches these days.

The Dangers of Masculinity

The American Psychological Association recently released a study calling out what it perceives as the dangers of traditional masculinity warning that it leads men to hating women and LGBTQ people. As men are “marketed” to by corporate America we see confusing messages on what it means to be a man these days.

Are we to be the strong, silent, rugged, macho guy? Or the sensitive, nurturing, submissive guy who sits back quietly and just accepts things the way they are?

If we listen to the world we will be continually confused about what it means to be a man. But not surprisingly God’s Word has a lot to say about what real men are.

This morning, Mike discusses this issue with Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute. What does it mean to be a man of God in today’s world?

We also look at an interesting perspective from a Christian musician who says that youth these days are being conditioned to worship their own self-image, and since the world is sending wrong messages to our youth about what their image should look like it is leading to dire consequences for an entire generation.

The Feminizing of American Christianity

God created men and women equal but uniquely different. In His master plan, men are to be strong and loving leaders and wives are to respectfully submit to their husband’s leadership. The Christian church in America needs real godly men, but at the time when they are needed most many are confused about what it means to be a true man of God. The world and its institutions that hate God have successfully minimized and redefined manhood, reducing many men to confused, quivering bowls of jelly instead of principled, strong leaders for the church and their families. And some believe that church leadership is also responsible for accommodating this feminizing of Christian men because they are not teaching us what it means to be Godly leaders of wives, families, and communities.

Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to discuss how society’s emasculation of men is infecting American Christianity, leading to dire consequences.
