Open War is Upon Us: the Reality of Spiritual Warfare

When darkness increases, light shines the brightest. So how does America look today? Where is the salt and light? Are Christians equipped for the spiritual and cultural battles we are faced with today? As we strive to share the Gospel, there is also a spiritual war going on against Christ and His truth. The Bible encourages believers to be soldiers for Christ. And in Ephesians 6 Paul tells us to put on the armor of God. Why?

Believers need preparation and protection! Paul writes that the Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God, the only offensive weapon for believers. We must speak the word and, in order to do that we need to know the word of God.

Witchcraft: from Culture to Classroom to Church?

All Hallows Eve, All Saints Day, Halloween, Day of the Dead, Harvest Festival, Thanksgiving, Advent, Christmas. The list could go on. As Christians, we live for Jesus Christ and celebrate Him. To live is Christ. He said to His followers “You are the light of the world.” What does that mean? How then should we live and can light mix with darkness?

We recently talked about Halloween and its origins, and discussed how Christians should celebrate it if at all. But we’re moving on to something that is evident in our culture and country year-round, sometimes obvious, often subtle: witchcraft. It’s prevalent in our culture and entertainment industry, kids games, the Internet, and in public school curriculum.

How has the church generally responded?

Study on ‘Discipline of the Mind and Devotion’

It takes time, commitment, and discipline to train our flesh and mature in Christ, and one of the most important disciplines is investing in God’s Word. Growth in personal holiness is determined by our progress in self-discipline.

Victory always comes at a price. The effective Christian life demands we exercise self-discipline in areas like food, drink, sleep, our speech, family priorities, work, leisure, time management, and money. We must exercise self-control and restrict our liberties in whatever would hinder us from winning the prize.

America in Crisis: Have We Reached a Tipping Point?

To those of us who are older, seasoned Christians perhaps, we see an America today little like we experienced growing up.  Certainly there were problems throughout our history, but nothing like we witness today.  Moral decay, including the murder of 60,000,000 million children through abortion; a public education system that is in lock step with anti-god globalists; a media with no sniff of objectivity and in the tank for the far left; as well as a political party, the Democrats, that has completely sold out to global corporate interests and the radical LBGTQ lobby.

We live in a nation where both our religious freedoms and right to bear arms are increasingly under attack.

Pastor and best-selling author, Carl Gallups joins us to discuss just where America might be headed.  He brings a unique perspective as a pastor, biblical scholar, and former Law Enforcement Official.  Where are we headed and can this slide toward totalitarian government be averted?  If not, what are the responsibilities of disciples of Jesus Christ toward a government that sees us as a threat to its power?

Deeper Faith, Honest Questions, Sharing the Gospel

Two fantastic guests on the program means #doubletruththursday. Is that a thing? Anyway…

Today, Mike and David welcome first-time guest, evangelist, Willie Herath of Ratio Christi in southern California and we discuss apologetics, deeper questions in the faith, and how to effectively respond to nonbelievers. How important is it for us to be ready to respond when people have questions or have objections to Christianity. We often find out that they really did not know much about the evidence for the Christian faith and the Bible.

We also talk with radio host, Mike Zander, from Utah’s Key Radio where he reaches out to Mormons in Utah with the gospel. He’s in town today and in-studio with Mike LeMay and David Fiorazo.

No Comment or Question Off Limits

So many controversial issues and debates, so little time! Here’s what listeners want to discuss today:

To what level can a Christian be depressed?
How much does our faith play into our emotional and mental health, and how much depends on trusting God?
I know spiritual warfare is real because we are warned many times about it in the New Testament, but to what extent can demons influence Christians?
My strong hunch is that a majority of Americans have bought the lies about Justice Kavanaugh because they no longer think logically.
What do you think the greater problem in most churches is – ignorance in the pulpit or cowardice?
Didn’t know how extensive the Burning Man movement has become. It seems like a combination of New Age, humanism, environmentalism, and a combo of religions: can you please boil this ideology down so it’s easier to understand?
With all the division and spiritual confusion in the church, it’s no wonder many young people want nothing to do with Christianity today.
I’m a newer Christian, could you please explain Replacement Theology? Is it a salvation issue?
Hillsong’s stance on issues such as evolution, homosexuality, and seeker-friendly movement are concerning to the Australian Council of Churches. Hillsong produced some wonderful music, but as a whole they seem to have exchanged traditional, historical Christian doctrines to seek fame and fortune.
I’m a former Catholic and know some good Roman Catholic friends, even though many of their Church doctrines are unbiblical: can a Catholic go to heaven or not?

Battle in the Spiritual Realm

In Ephesians 6, Paul tells us that while people of the world will hate us because we are disciples of Jesus, our battle is not against them. It is against the “spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” We are then warned to put on the full armor of God to wage war against these demonic forces.

In our final segment today, Mike and David look at an article on spiritual warfare from pastor Karl Payne discussing the demonic forces behind the division in our nation and how we should live in this world that hates us more and more.

We also visit with Pastor and best selling author Carl Gallups to continue our discussion from last month on his new, provocative book Gods of Ground Zero. Gallups reveals interesting facts and theories regarding the Garden of Eden, tying it in with actual history as well as biblical prophecy.

Juan Valdez: Critical Thinking, Culture Wars, and Apologetics

People often ask fair questions about faith, God, the Bible, or about truth. Today’s youth are no different. Can you really know God, does absolute truth exist, if God is love why is there evil, do Christians live by blind faith? And many other honest questions.

But there’s a problem. Too often, believers in Christ do not have good, thoughtful answers for them. Are we equipped to answer these questions let alone help today’s young people for the spiritual and cultural battles they face every day?

Jay Seegert on Creation vs Evolution

The universe reveals a complexity, design, and magnificence that staggers the imagination, and logic shows us that life could not have appeared by some random, spontaneous process. Evidence seems to point to a master plan and an intelligent being; such intricate, organized design must have come from a Designer. 

The theory of evolution however, has been generally accepted by the scientific community and academia, and taught as fact in most public schools across America.
