Dismantling the Lies of the Enemy

The only way to dismantle lies is to respectfully confront them with truth. We try doing this on our radio program when it comes to lies not only in our culture but sadly, within churches in America. Our guest is a professional ‘lie-debunker’ and travels around the world sharing the hope of Jesus Christ with people deceived by the clever deception of the enemy.

Today’s guest is Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministry! He’s back to talk about their video series titled “debunked” and the impact it is having in spreading the truth, love and grace of the gospel.

“…but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect.” 1 Peter 3:15

Cracks in Radical Liberalism’s Foundations

We often discuss how radical liberalism is eventually exposed and dismissed because of its obvious self-defeating contradictions.  In their zeal to develop more and more “protected classes” of people, they eventually run into a contradiction they cannot reconcile with their attempts to make everyone feel like a victim.  This morning we look at liberals and feminists along with conservative women in pushing back against the awful “Equality Act” introduced by House Democrats that would impose national protections and special rights to those who identify as transgender.We also look at a growing number of Catholics who are now considering leaving their church because of the wide ranging sexual abuse scandals within their church.In our first segment we talk with Preston Condra, of Sufficient Word Publishing, about his new book aimed at helping parents explain the gospel to their children and helping them develop a biblical world view as they head into the dangerous waters of public education.

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.

The Dilemma of Islam to the Disciple of Jesus Christ

According to 1 John Chapter 4, Islam is clearly a religion of Antichrist since Islam denies that Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. The holy books of Islam also call for world-wide domination through Shariah law which contradicts the U.S. Constitution and has often been imposed by extremely violent methods throughout history.

We must remember however, that Muslims are people made in the image of God, but they have been deceived by the father of lies. They need the gospel of salvation by knowing the true Jesus Christ, not the fictitious “Issa” taught in the Quran. This leaves Christians in a challenging position. Some Muslims are being radicalized to destroy our way of life and attack when called to do so and yet, we are faced with the command of Jesus to share the gospel and make disciples of all people and nations.

It’s important we have an accurate understanding of Islam. The media, government, and public education paint Islam as a religion of peace and tolerance, but few ask what do you mean by “peace”? A historically factual view of world events often paints a very different picture. Our guest this morning, an expert on the topic, is Tony Gurule of Ratio Christi Ministries. Tony has studied Islam, Sharia Law, and the Muslim Brotherhood extensively, and hosts weekly shows on the Aramaic Broadcast Network, “Colliding Worldviews” and “Islam & The News,” and “Truth Matters” on the NRB network.

Living in Prophetic Times

Why don’t we talk about prophecy more than we do? Nearly one third of the Bible is prophecy. Today’s guest says we are living in the most prophetic times since Jesus Christ Himself lived on earth. Things seem to be falling into place as the world rushes toward a one world government and evil continues to grow, God, His Word, and His people are hated more and more each day.

What are some of the specific biblical prophesies we might be witnessing in our life times? And what does the Bible teach about Elohim and the Nephilim in the Old Testament? Pastor and best-selling author, Carl Gallups joins us to discuss his latest book, Gods and Thrones.

Worldview Matters: Truth or Consequences?

After thousands of years of constant attacks, opposition, and intense scrutiny by critics − warfare that no other work has ever seen − the Bible has withstood the onslaught, has gained credibility, and the Christian faith has continued to thrive throughout the world. Why?
No other written work has the power to convict people of their sin, the ability to change human nature, and offers a permanent solution to man’s greatest problem.

Consider the uniqueness of the Bible: a record of God’s message to His creation, miracles, history, an honest assessment of evil and the heart of man, unique claims, a plan of salvation, and a specific description and vision of the end times.

Jerusalem: Important Then and Now

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, we can’t help but hear about Bethlehem, Jerusalem, and Israel. But if we ignore the signs of the times including what is happening in Jerusalem, we risk missing important end times events. These prophetic signs from God point to the return of Jesus to judge all mankind and establish His everlasting Kingdom in which “the government will be upon His shoulders.”

Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss recent events in Jerusalem and the Middle East as well as some forgotten history of the holy land. Randy also shares some fascinating details we may not know about the Christmas Story. In segment three we touch on two articles that cover anti-semitism in France and the ‘bah humbug’ spirit trying to prevent prisoners from receiving religions education.

Creation to Christmas: Old Testament Timeline

Two weeks from today Christians will celebrate and reflect on the birth of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh and our Messiah, who came to set us free from the punishment and captivity of sin. There is plenty of prophecy and very important history leading up to that amazing event that sadly gets increasingly ignored in most churches. It is called the Old Testament and it contains answers to many questions that the world is asking.

In fact if we do not understand the history of mankind and how they related with God leading up to the birth of Jesus, we will fail to grasp the true significance of Jesus’ birth along with his pending return when He judges all of humanity for eternity.

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us for a look at the history of mankind from the beginning of creation up until the birth of our Lord and Savior. The answers to our questions about God, His creation, our sinful nature and need of redemption are there. We just need to take the time to study God’s Word from the beginning.

Are We Truly Living for the Glory of God?

In Matthew 15:7-9, Jesus pointed out the hypocrisy of the Pharisees by saying:

“You hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy of you when he said: ‘This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is far from me; in vain do they worship me, teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.”

The first step for us as born-again Christians is to admit that we speak and act like hypocrites far too often. The second step is to be committed to allowing the grace and Spirit of God to bring our hypocrisy to an end as we grow in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ. Because of the continuing sinful nature within us and the pressures in this world that will be a life long battle, but one we should be committed to fighting.

How often do we damage our testimony and witness to lost people when we behave in a way that contradicts the Word of God? Does your spouse and children see a different you compared to the one people see when you’re in church? Do we want enough of God’s grace to be saved; but not enough to be sanctified and made holy?

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch is here to help us look internally at our hearts and the hypocrisy we too often display.

The Subtle Erosion of Biblical Literacy

Change is sometimes abrupt and immediate, but more often it is comprised of a slow erosion over time as little by little truth is replaced with opinions and emotions.  The serious decline of Christianity in America is the result of decades of subtle changes in what has been and is currently being taught in public education, what is presented in media, and from pulpits that often seem more interested in placating culture instead of speaking God’s truth and shining the light of Christ truth into it.
