Some Christians today say there’s nothing wrong with any modern holiday traditions as long as the celebration is around Jesus. Others say Christians should not lie to their children and should have nothing to do with Santa Claus because of the greed and materialism this season produces. But this leads to more questions – such as what should parents tell their children about Santa Claus?Read More
The Bible tells us the one thing that should distinguish God’s people from the world is our love of Him and one another. We are taught to not only love one another as Christians, but to forgive our enemies, pray for them, and never respond to hatred with hatred. We are to be a unique and holy people, separate from the ways and teachings of this world.
But that is not what Satan and this world wants. It is taunting us, hoping to provoke us toward anger and hatred, so they can say that we Christians are just as bad as them. Once the light of the world is neutralized what is to stop the world’s march toward evil?
John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins Mike LeMay and Crash Connell this morning to discuss how we are being conditioned to hate rather than love, and how we can avoid this trap.Read More
Paul tells us in Philippians Chapter 4 that we should rejoice in the Lord at all times, not be anxious and receive the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding. Now which of us would not want total peace? Yet which of us as Christians truly experiences it?
We have been forgiven of our sins and received the promise of eternity with God in heaven, yet we continue to struggle and worry about this life. Instead of exhibiting peace we are often filled with angst.
Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash today to discuss what the peace of God looks like and how we can enter it and enjoy the life He has given us.Read More
Satan is the perfect liar. He has mastered his art of deception over thousands of years and he can present something to us that looks “good” when in reality it is his instrument for enslaving us once man abuses it. In the final segments today, Mike and David look at how the Internet, presented in the 1990s as man’s gateway to knowledge and communication, is slowly becoming a system of intimidation against anyone who dares to live by or proclaim Christians values. Are we willingly walking into slavery through our obsession with social media?
In the first segment, Mike and David look at how radical leftists twist information and opinions to advance their godless agenda. Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council joins us to discuss how the radical left is now blaming Christians for the crisis in adoption, when, in reality, we are a solution to the crisis.Read More
The world is changing rapidly and the capabilities of technology are increasing at an alarming rate. Technological devices that serve us today could one day be used to monitor and control us.
Patrick Wood of Technocracy News joins Mike and David to look at some of the frightening scenarios in the coming years. Once Artificial Intelligence is “let out of the bottle” can anything stop it from being used to enslave us?
In our final segments, we look at some sad and shocking stories including how professing Christians continue to fall for theologies and beliefs that the Bible warns us about. This is not a joke, but we’ll discuss concerns about a self-proclaimed “Christian” Witch, and in another story, a modern-day “Prophet” of the Most High God.Read More
Here are some of today’s Listener questions/comments:
How long will we in America elevate man’s teachings over God’s Word?
Those who don’t know Scripture well end up following people like Andy Stanley
Are some pastors really keeping their followers ignorant of deeper things of God’s word?
My husband and I are struggling with our church of 11 years whose leadership is committed to Bill Hybels and the Willow Creek Assoc. We’re divided on whether or not to leave. Any advice?
Catholics are hurting over the priests sexually abusing children, and many are hurting. This may be an opportunity to reach them with the true gospel.
The Roman Catholic Church’s extensive history of abuse, coverup, and hypocrisy.
Does social media play into anorexia and bulimia?
It is idiotic to want plastic surgery in order to look better in your selfies. What causes this warped thought process?
Can you explain the difference between a fornicator and an adulterer, in other words is lusting in the heart truly considered adultery?
There is a huge difference between “bashing the church” and confronting and exposing error.
Can you clarify Paul’s teaching in Romans 13 about submitting to governing authorities?
For those who say division is always wrong, how about the Reformation?
I’m a former Catholic and used to trust the church (institution) over God’s Word. Any advice on how to engage Catholics in discussions about Scripture and true doctrine?

Can we really make an impact for God on social media when most people have their minds made up?
What are the basic differences between Buddhism and Christianity?
It’s always stunning when Liberals use the Word of God to promote their anti-biblical stances; especially when they are the ones that usually fight tooth and nail against the government creating laws based on scripture. But hypocrisy knows no boundaries and this morning we look at quoted from Elizabeth Warren and Senator Cory Booker, abusing the scriptures to promote a pro-abortion agenda. yes, that’s the same Cory Booker that Willow Creek elevated as a next great “Christian” leader at its leadership Summit just a few years back.
And not to be outdone in abusing scripture, Red Letter Christians have once again shown their true colors of hypocrisy, claiming to be “pro-life,” but refusing to condemn abortion as sin and murder.
In our first segment this morning, Mike and Crash check in with Tina Griffin, Counter-Culture Mom, to discuss ways to protect our children from the dangers of Hollywood, video games and the internet.Read More
One of the easiest ways to get someone mad at you these days is to proclaim something like “I believe the Bible is the Word of God and Jesus is the truth.” The reaction you receive will vary from a look of pity because you are “ignorant” to an angry or defensive response because they see you as a narrow-minded, homophobic bigot. And while American Christians still enjoy religious freedoms for the most part, many around the world do not. Make no mistake: the left is out to strip you of those freedoms any way they can; and they will stop at nothing until you are badgered, bullied or intimidated into silence.
This morning we look at how social media and the legal system is trying to silence Christians.
In our first segment, Mike and David talk with Attorney and professor, Mark Maxwell, a Christian in the entertainment industry who has written a new book that questions the effectiveness and morality of networking for success.Read More
In our first segment today, we check in with Tina Marie Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, to discuss some disturbing news in social media, entertainment, and gaming, including dangers parents need to be aware of in raising their children.
In our second segment today we look at the personal and judicial history of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh. Is there enough information to predict an outcome on the Senate vote and what kind of judge he would be? The opposition and “resistance” has commenced.
In segment three, we discuss a hard-hitting article titled “Four Progressive Steps into Apostasy” looking at how some churches (not just Catholics) and Christians fall into deep theological traps. Truly, deception is rampant!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
A very simple observation: As foretold in the Bible the world is growing more and more evil. War in the Middle East could break out at any time as Iran and Turkey vow to destroy Israel; evil regimes possess nuclear, chemical and biological weapons that could devastate humanity; governments grow in power, controlling what we do, say and even think more and more each day.
Humanity collectively thumbs its nose at God. Public education and media pollute the minds of our children, indoctrinating them into a world view that opposes God and His Word.
Historically Christians have two “safe havens” where we could retreat from the insanity and growing evil of this world: Our churches and homes. Well sadly a growing number of churches are selling out to the world so as not to offend it; and now even the privacy of our homes and our very minds are under attack by the dangerous growth of highly invasive technology.
Eric Barger has been extensively researching how technology is being set up to manipulate and one day control us. This morning he joins us to discuss his new series “Home Invasion”.Read More
Dr. Scott Lively has advocated and modeled the Biblical worldview as a writer, speaker, attorney, pastor, human rights consultant, and missionary for more than 30 years on five continents. We share his passion for Truth and the goal of restoring a Judeo-Christian consensus in America and advancing the Biblical worldview around the globe.Read More
For years, spiritual leaders have been shackling believers with a flawed interpretation of Romans 13 – especially as to how it applies to citizens living in a republic like ours. Consequently, Christian people who would normally stand against tyranny, believe that they owe slavish, unlimited submission to their government.
Patriot Pastor Dan Fisher tackles this controversial topic and proves conclusively that Christians not only have the right, but the responsibility to speak up about evil and stand up to tyrannical leaders – no matter the cost.Read More
Pastor, teacher, former law enforcement officer, and best-selling author, Carl Gallups joins us to discuss the recent news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passing away last week. What are the constitutional responsibilities of the president to nominate judges to fill court vacancies? And what if he proceeds on this prior to the November election?Read More
We know that the testing of our faith produces strength and endurance. Most of us can use a perspective check as we live comfortable lives in a free republic. But we know it won’t always be this way, so how do we prepare for persecution?Read More
The church in America is not the same church that began in Jerusalem. We have become domesticated. What can we do to get back to biblical Christianity instead of being worried about being “relevant” and seeker sensitive?Read More
