Discernment or Self-Destruction?

This morning on Stand Up For the Truth we read your comments and answer your questions from this week.  One central theme is discernment issues within Christianity.  Are we using proper biblical discernment or engaging in prideful witch hunts, looking to discredit others who we disagree with?  Also, several have chimed in regarding young people seeking “community” outside the confines of church. We discuss these and other topics of interest today.

First up, David covers our weekly Media watch segment, answering this question:  Why does secular media dedicate so much time to covering issues Americans say they don’t care about?

Controversial Issues in the Christian Church

Families and societies operate best when there are fixed standards of morality to guide our actions. In our nation, we were established upon the rule of law, supposedly giving us clear instruction what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior. As Christians we are guided by God’s Word which sets the ultimate standard for morality and acceptable behavior for us. But what happens when “normal” becomes subjective to personal feelings?

In the first segment today, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to keep an eye on world wide economic trends that point to globalism through a coming shake up in the world economy.

Double Speak: Islam, Feminism, and Eugene Peterson’s Flip Flop

Today, we will be discussing the controversial statement, and subsequent retraction, of Eugene Peterson’s endorsement of homosexual marriage as “biblical.” We will comment on an article from John Stonestreet at Breakpoint, a good perspective on why Christian leaders like Peterson are suddenly making confusing statements about homosexuality, and the damage it is doing to the Evangelical Church in America.

In our first segment we turn our attention to the emerging “double speak” of the left as it relates to Islam, Feminism, and progressive ideology in America. Why do liberals publicly support Islam, a system that stands against everything liberals value such as abortion, homosexuality and women’s rights? Ryan Mauro of The Clarion Project joins us to look at the hypocrisy of the left regarding Islam.

Religious Freedom Hanging in the Balance

When the U.S. Supreme Court legalized homosexual marriage in 2015, some of us predicted that the real issue was not same-sex “marriage,” but rather a full out war on silencing Christians and forcing people to accept and celebrate an anti-biblical agenda. Well, a lot of people dismissed our prediction as “fear mongering.” But fast forward just two years later and we are seeing a persistent attack on the speech and freedoms of Christians, and a legal and propaganda campaign to marginalize Christian thought, beliefs, and conscience.

Today we cover some high-interest news stories on just how critical things are getting. In the first segment, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to see how economically we are walking into bondage by ignoring the signs of an imminent world-wide financial meltdow

Dangerous Rhetoric… Dangerous Events

The tragic shooting this week in Virginia of Republican Congressmen and staffers is a sad effect of the careless, hateful rhetoric that spews out of Washington politicians and our divided nation as a whole over the past two decades. Mentally unstable people get caught up in the media sensationalism and decide that violence is the logical answer. Is our nation on the brink of a social meltdown and political anarchy fueled by careless politicians and a reckless media? I think you know the answer. We will cover this story and others in our Media watch segment this morning. We also answer your questions from this week’s shows.

Liberal Theology & Thought: A Cancer Spreading in the Professing Church?

We all celebrated when we thought Communism and Marxism had finally died with the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1989. Little did we know Marxism hadn’t died; it had only morphed into something more subtle but every bit as dangerous: the new progressive liberalism. This is tolerance and inclusiveness on steroids!

By all accounts Marxism has infiltrated our colleges and media under the nomenclature of progressivism. It’s bad enough our nation’s younger people open their arms to this dangerous deception, but a growing number of professing Christians and churches have openly embraced and promoted this system that directly contradicts most of the Bible’s teachings. On today’s program, Mike LeMay and David Fiorazo explore this dangerous movement and how it is not only being openly embraced by millions of American citizens, but by too many ‘professing’ Christians in our nation.

The Great Deception of Media, Public Education and Fake Christianity

The Bible warns us that in the final days deception would become so rampant and powerful that many would abandon biblical Christianity for a world-wide system based on Humanism, elevating the thinking of mankind and dismissing God and His Word. Over the past 20-30 years the face of media, public education, and even the Church in America has changed so radically that it looks nothing like to used to. And the sad truth is in the here and now, Secular Humanism is winning the hearts and minds of many youth–youth that will one day lead this nation and our local churches.

Our guest today is Don Venoit of Midwest Christian Outreach as we take a sobering look at the decay of American culture and thought, along with the many problems facing the Christian Church in America.

The Attack on Religious Liberty

The Constitution of the United States guarantees every citizen the right to worship as they believe and to freely express their religious views privately as well as publicly. But Jesus warned us that the day would come when true Christian believers would be marginalized, hated and even persecuted for their faith in Him. Historically we have believed “that could never happen in America,” but we are seeing the early signs that indeed it is starting to happen.

Are we approaching the day when the right of true, practicing Christians to share their faith and worship publicly in our nation will become a distant memory? What can we do to assure our constitutional rights to privately and publicly express and share our Christian convictions? Or should we accept what many feel is inevitable: that Christian liberties will be stripped in favor of political correctness and secular humanism?

Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute joins us to discuss trends and recent legal battles over the religious freedom of Christians.

A Knock on Your Door…

Many of us have received some friendly faces knocking on our door at some point and often on a Saturday morning. You open the door and a couple nice young men greet you and ask if they can talk to you about Jesus and where you might be spending eternity. You are being witnessed to by dedicated members of The Mormon Church.

There are more than 1.5 million Mormons in America. Most of them are conservative citizens that are passionate about their beliefs and desiring to convert you to their religion. But is Mormonism, which also claims salvation through their version of Jesus, consistent with Biblical Christianity in their beliefs and values? Today we take a closer look at Mormon history and beliefs with James Walker of Watchman Fellowship, a former Mormon himself.

The Next Generation that Will Lead the Church

Once Joshua died the nation of Israel began a steady decline that got so bad they eventually started worshiping a false god who actually required child sacrifice along with other things that God calls abominations.

In America we have seen a steady decline in the study and application of God’s Word and a growing number of churches that look more like social clubs instead of gatherings to worship God and equip one another for the works of the Holy Spirit. And in the next decade or so the current group of younger people called “millenials” will be leading our churches and our nation.

Dave Wager works with younger people as Director of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute, and joins us this morning for a frank discussion on the world view of Millenials and how we as their elders have shaped their beliefs and views. Jeff Strommen of HopeNet 360 and co-host of HopeNet Radio gives us the Millennial perspective today.

Prayer, Media Watch, & Religious Freedom

Today is The National Day of Prayer. Thousands will be gathered around America feeling called to pray for our nation. But just how should we pray for America–a nation that is continuing down the politically correct path to destruction? Even many professing believers deny its Judeo-Christian principles by turning its back on the truth of God and His Word.

Has America and its leaders become a stubborn, stiff-necked people unwilling to repent and return to God and His ways? Is there still hope? What about religious freedom and legislation that discriminates against Christians when laws were passed to give certain groups special, not equal, rights? What should we be praying for today and from this point on?

Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action joins us to day to discuss the importance of prayer and action to address the growing apostasy in our nation.

The Cesspool of American Culture

If you are old enough to remember life in America in the 1950s and 60s, you would remember the culture of entertainment was much different back then. You could actually watch television with your children without fear of them being bombarded with messages of perversion, violence, and overt sexuality. And you also trusted your public school to actually teach math, science, and history without indoctrinating your children into believing evolution, becoming little earth muffins, hating America, or being encouraged to explore sexuality in ways contradictory to biblical morality. As they say, those were the good old days.

But today our youth are inundated with sexual perversion and godless worldviews at every turn. It is a sad reality that the influence of parents wanting to raise their children with Christian values has become more and more difficult.

Joining us to discuss the filth that passes for entertainment, and the blatant systematic brainwashing of our children is Tina Marie Griffin of Counter Culture Mom.

The Dangers of “Changing” Genders & Today’s Entertainment

With the insanity of the transgender movement and its growing acceptance by Americans and policy enforcement by the government, a prominent medical organization has weighed in to set the record straight. This morning we cover a report by The American College of Pediatricians that says assisting children in “changing their gender” is actually child abuse – and ultimately destructive to them.

We also look at a Wisconsin technology company that is implanting microchips into its employees. Is this a glance at end-times prophecy, all with the promise that there is nothing to worry about?

In our first segment today, we are blessed to have in-studio guest, Tina Marie of Counter Culture Mom and discuss how we can protect our children from the dangerous ideas of Hollywood, television, the publishing industry, and video games.

If Saul Alinsky Was Alive Today

Saul Alinsky, a radical liberal and agnostic, wrote the blueprint on how to introduce chaos through community organizing in hopes of overthrowing the government of the United States by undermining its foundational systems: government, public education, media, and the church. His book Rules For Radicals spells out how people should organize and force change through misinformation and intimidation. In his book he acknowledges the “first radical known to man: Lucifer.”

Today we explore two questions: First, what would Saul Alinsky think if he were alive today? And second, how could a man who admired Lucifer have such a strong influence – not only in our nation but also in too many American Christian Churches?

We’re joined this morning my John Loeffler, a fifty year veteran of broadcast journalism and born-again follower of Jesus Christ. John is in his 25th year of hosting Steel on Steel radio–a news talk program that looks at today’s events through the lens of the Bible.

Just How Low Can Humanity Sink?

In our final segment this morning we cover a tragic story of what can happen when people are taught that human life is an accident of the universe instead of life created by God in His image. A group of teenagers in Florida saw a man drowning, and instead of trying to help him they recorded the event on social media, mocking him as he splashed around. Now, two young daughters are without their father.

First up, we talk with Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project and discuss his article, “A Simple Approach to Sharing Your Faith.” Have we made sharing the gospel something we dread instead of enjoy doing? What are some ways we can open up a discussion with anyone, offering them the hope of eternal life with God?
