Sanitized Socialism’s New Generation in America

Most of us have heard about the recent polls suggesting more Americans, and particularly those under 30, are softening to socialism. We hear the principles of socialism and so-called ‘income inequality’ being proclaimed by major Democrat presidential candidates. But where do Americans stand on this important topic and do people really know the true history about socialism? 

Is the nation really shifting? Is there anything Christian about socialism? We discuss this today.

Millennials Say Yes to Socialism in New Poll

According to a new poll, seventy percent of Millennials now plan on voting for socialists and Democrats. And thirty-six percent support communism. For those keeping score at home, that’s one in three youngsters – brought up in the modern, atheistic, secular-progressive education system in America.

Not surprisingly, with the help of today’s media and Hollywood, these same Millennials believe President Donald Trump is a bigger threat to world peace than North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and Russia’s Vladimir Putin.

The Spiritual Side of Radical Liberalism

It would be a tragic mistake to think that the seismic lurch to the far left by radical politic leaders in our nation is either temporary, isolated or without spiritual motivation.  Rather than a political movement, radical Liberalism is part of a movement bent on uniting the world around global humanism, turning our backs on God.  And the Word of God warns us of this tragedy as Jesus prepares to return to judge the nations.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins Mike and Crash today to discuss how the radical liberal movement in the U.S. is tied to godless globalism, and how Christianity is its number one threat and target.

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.

Big Challenges Facing Christianity in America

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?

Are American Christian Churches at a Crossroad?

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?

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.

Jan Markell: An Upside Down World – Signs of the Times

“God doesn’t shake the entire globe very often. He did during the time of Noah and at the Tower of Babel. There was a terrible plague in the 1300s and a pandemic in 1918. Two world wars took a stunning toll. But now an unseen enemy—a virus, no less—has created fear-driven chaos, and some unknown factors are causing people to embrace a worst-case outlook for the world. At this time, we don’t know how this plays out. It certainly has apocalyptic implications.” – Jan Markell, today’s guest

Steven Bancarz: New Age Influence in Christian Churches

All across North America, Christian churches have unknowingly encouraged occult beliefs and practices far removed from what the Bible teaches. This unfortunate reality is intrinsically linked to the popularity increase of New Age spirituality in the twenty-first century, and we’ve been so influenced by its integration into our society that we have become blind to recognizing, and preventing, the effects of this mainstream, pop-culture heresy, even within the walls of God’s house.

Today’s guest is former New Ager, Steven Bancarz, founder of the apologetics website, Reasons for Jesus, and co-author of the best-selling book The Second Coming of the New Age.

Carl Teichrib: So Many Gods, so Much Deception

So many gods, so little time. There are well over 1.5 million Wiccans (over 3 million pagans, total) in the U.S. and these numbers are growing. Some are deceivers while many others are simply deceived, just looking for some kind of spirituality to practice. The increase of young people identifying themselves as neo-pagans and Wiccans is due in part to the media’s glorification of the supernatural, occult themes in Hollywood, and disillusionment with organized religion.

From national monuments to pagan deities and statues across North America, ancient gods and goddesses are all around us. Deception, idolatry, the occult, earth worship, satanism, and witchcraft have become common and to a great degree, accepted in our society. The question we should, however, ask is to what extent has it seeped into our churches?
