The Prayer of a Red Letter Christian

Have you ever wondered how members of the “Red Letter Christians” pray when they gather together? How do you pray to God when you believe He cares more about social justice and immigration than he does the eternal souls of men? This morning, Mike and David will share the opening prayers cited at the Red Letter Christian “Lynchburg Revival.” See if you can spot anything missing.

Mike and David will also discuss the danger of the #MeToo Movement combining with politics and activism. Abortion is just one of the hot-button issues and the Left thinks nothing of destroying its opponents just to make sure they can go on eliminating the lives of innocent children in the womb.

In our first segment, Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach joins the program as he prepares to attend the Parliament of World Religions in Canada in November.

Selective Social Justice

The outcry against sex trafficking is growing and rightly so, and more awareness must be raised on this issue. These tragic stories need to be reported on as every year, tens of thousands of young girls and boys are being kidnapped and conditioned for sex slavery, prostitution, or pornography. Who could possibly get in trouble for exposing sex trafficking? Apparently, a person who exposes radical Islam over in England is guilty – for standing outside a courthouse reporting on it. In our final segment we will discuss the story of conservative activist Tommy Robinson who has been imprisoned for his campaign to expose sex trafficking in England, often being run by Muslims there.

First up, we check in with Pastor Randy White to discuss Satan, Job, and ‘Heavenly councils’ as spoken of in God’s Word. You might be surprised to hear who is still a part of these councils and what he is up to these days. Pastor White also warns us about the growing ecumenical movement that threatens to water down the gospel of salvation.

Desperate for God and His Truth – in India

We take so much for granted where our faith and freedoms are concerned. Too many Christians in America have lost the desire for spiritual things while it is evident so many people in other countries hunger for God’s Word and the truth. There are striking similarities between the lukewarm church in Laodicea from the book of Revelation and the comfortable, complacent church in  the United States.

We receive another first-hand account of the state of the church today with our guest, teacher and missionary, Elijah Abraham, who just returned from India where he taught and helped equip pastors there.

The Push for Globalism, Division by Design

As the Bible warns us, the world continues to become a more dangerous and evil place.  The love of many grows colder, men are self-serving, evil is seen as good, God is hated, there are natural disasters, economic concerns, as well as wars and rumors of war.  But the good news has always been this life is a vapor compared to eternity, and God is sovereign – in control and on His throne. No scheme of Satan or man will foil His plans.

In the midst of growing cultural and political chaos in America and worldwide, prophecy will be fulfilled and God has a plan for His people: speak the truth and share the gospel with the lost, making disciples of all nations. 

Our guest this morning is Gary Kah of Hope for the World Ministries.  Gary is a worldview expert and has done extensive research over several decades concerning the progressing globalism and the establishment of a one world religion.  But Gary also reminds us that in the midst of all that is going on we can trust in God’s Word, and that the best thing we can do as believers to combat evil is to share the gospel and hope of Jesus Christ as we strive to overcome evil with good.

How Serious is the North Korea Threat?

Last weekend, North Korea successfully tested a hydrogen bomb.  Already possessing nukes and threatening to use them against the U.S., the fact they now have hydrogen bombs raises the stakes dramatically for two reasons:  First, hydrogen bombs are far more powerful than simple nuclear weapons, and second, a hydrogen bomb is much more plausible for what might be a worst nightmare for our nation.  Some suggest an electronic magnetic pulse bomb (EMP) could wipe out every computer and electronic capability of our nation for up to a full year. If that happens, government experts predict the casualty rate could be as high as 90% in our nation and it would practically eliminate America as a world power.

This morning we discuss the threat and ask how Christians should respond in the face of potential tragedy.

In our first segment today, we check in with Counter Culture Mom, Tina Marie Griffin, to discuss dangers in media for our children, practical alternatives for parents, and a big event coming up in a few weeks for women.

Forgetting the Importance of Israel and the Middle East

With all the media distractions and distortions about President Trump and Russia and healthcare and travel bans, we tend to forget the importance of Israel and the Middle East. Dr. Andy Woods is back with us today. He discusses the nations of Turkey and Russia among others, Israel, Rome, and Babylon (modern day Iraq). We also discuss a few Supreme Court decisions and the importance of standing for the truth of God’s Word in a loving but uncompromising way – even in an anti-Christian culture.

National Security, Religious Freedom, and Biased Media

With terrorism on the rise, many Americans are naturally concerned with safety, wanting the federal government to inform us about hateful ideologies and protect us from terrorist organizations like ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood. But safety usually comes with a potentially severe price: Freedom. It is a difficult balance to maintain maximum safety without government intrusion into privacy, freedom of speech, or other liberties our Constitution guarantees us as citizens.

Also, there is a potentially dangerous trend within our National Security Agencies to become political as we are witnessing holdover members of the Obama Administration leaking damaging innuendo or facts about the Trump Administration to the press. Few would argue the media doesn’t want to undermine the President’s agenda and see him fail.

Ryan Mauro is a national security expert withe The Clarion Project and a Shillman Fellow. He joins us to discuss President Trump’s trip to the Middle East this weekend, as well as the growth of terrorism and what can be legally done about it.

Next, David Fiorazo presents another Media Watch segment concerning what he calls hypocritical, irresponsible, malignant media bias, and we discuss the increasing discrimination against Christians and conservatives in America.

Does North Korea fit in Biblical Prophecy?

Understandably when most Christians consider biblical prophecy we look to Israel and the growing tension in the Middle East. And while many events in the Middle East seem to be lining up prophetically, are we over looking a tiny nation in Asia with nuclear weapons who is threatening to destroy America and plunge the world into global war? We’re talking of course about North Korea. At least one pastor and student of biblical prophecy thinks it is a mistake to discount North Korea’s influence on end times prophecy.

Pastor Carl Gallups, a best-selling author and radio show host joins us to take a world-wide view of biblical prophecy and the increasing tension in the world.

Debating the Rapture in the Scriptures

One of the hottest debate topics among biblical scholars and students is over what is referred to as the rapture of the church in the final days of this world. A few Christians actually believe the rapture is a human imagination not even mentioned in the Bible, but most Christians believe the church will be raptured; some just disagree over the timing of it.

It certainly does appear that we might be drawing closer to the final days as we see a world in economic, social and military chaos. And Jesus warned us to be looking for the signs of the season pointing to His return. So how does the rapture of the true church fit into the final days before the Lord’s return?

Joining us is Dr. Andy Woods, a biblical scholar who has studied prophecy at length and written The Coming Middle East Meltdown detailing things to look for as we anticipate the return of our Lord and Savior. We also discuss Kingdom Now theology as well as Replacement theology as well as the importance of Israel as the Day of the Lord draws near.

Skeptics & Scoffers

God’s Word warns us of a couple very important things: first, that Jesus is returning one day to judge all men and establish His everlasting Kingdom; and second, there will be those who mock and doubt His return, believing mankind can work out all our own problems.

But the warning signs of His return are all around us for those who have eyes to see: other than wars and rumors of wars, Israel is once again a nation; the whole world led by the United Nations is opposing Israel; radical Islam is vowing to destroy Israel; and regimes in North Korea, China, Russia, Iran and Syria have the chemical and nuclear weapons to plunge the world into the final great war before the Lord returns. Today’s guest, Gary Kah, has studied biblical prophecy, globalism and the coming one world government for several decades.

The End Game in Syria and Israel

Many are wondering what the end game of leaders like President Trump and Russian President Putin might be in Syria and the Middle East. The U.S. attack on the air force base that Syrian President Assad used to attack his people with chemical weapons has the world on edge, and as the U.S. Secretary of State prepares to meet with Russian leaders today, an anxious world looks on hoping for a positive outcome that will avoid an escalation of war.

Hear what Gary Kay has to say on today’s program.

We All Have Assumptions; Plus, ‘Using Jesus to Promote Evil’

Anyone can say they’re a Christian. If you ask most Americans, including our politicians, they will probably say they “believe” in Jesus.  But if we don’t take the time to ask them exactly what they think about Jesus or who they believe He is, we can’t possibly know for certain if they are converts or counterfeits.  Progressive “Christians” claim they are doing the work Jesus commanded us to do.  The only problem is they are teaching and promoting the exact opposite of what Jesus taught, especially on major biblical issues.  When we assume a person is a Christian just because they say so, we are easily deceived.Speaking of assumptions, we welcome a new guest to Stand Up For the Truth, Dave Richardson.  He wrote a powerful book about assumptions and how they can deceive us and even hinder us in our walk with Jesus Christ. Richardson’s book is critically acclaimed and comes highly recommended, as it discusses how our deepest assumptions often control our lives for better or for worse.

After Easter: Jesus is Lord and the Gospel must Advance

We are fresh off of Easter weekend as many of us celebrated the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who shed His blood for our redemption.  He has freed us from the power of death and sin.  But with the simple yet profound message of the gospel, many Christians are still often confused about what this life should look like.  Did Jesus die so I could be healthy, wealthy, or comfortable in this life?  Are my physical sufferings or trials a sign of a lack of faith?  If the Bible says Jesus has taken our sorrows, then why do we still struggle with sadness and anxiety?Pastor Randy White joins us to look at the promises of Jesus Christ and how we apply them in correct context to our lives as His disciples.

Biblical Christianity in the Crosshairs

Americans have been historically blessed with a Constitution that guarantees us the right to religious beliefs and expression of those beliefs.  But slowly and surely those freedoms are under attack by secular humanists, public education, media and an out of control government.  At some point we will reach a breaking point in our nation where the Bible is viewed as hate speech and where every person who trusts in it as the Word of God will be seen as dangerous.Joining Mike and David today is Pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups.  Carl is a student of biblical prophecy and has studied the trends in Europe where Christianity has all but been eliminated from society.  Is America next – and what will be the consequences?
