Sexuality as a Gift From God

Sexual intimacy between a man and his wife are a great gift from God. This relationship is a human representation of the deep intimacy Jesus wants with His bride, the church.  When a man and his wife are sexually intimate there is a deep physical, emotional and spiritual bonding that God blesses.

But as Satan often does, he takes something beautiful from God and twists it to deceive people. Today, rampant sexuality has led to destruction and disaster: abortion, broken marriages, divorce, and sexual brokenness and even gender confusion.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins Mike and David to discuss the beauty of biblical sexuality and the snare of sexual sin that has led to dramatic moral decline in our nation.

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?

Big Challenges Facing Christianity in America

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has witnessed and addressed the attacks on both our churches and our nation by radical ideologies and movements, and joins Mike and David to discuss the many challenges our nation and Christian Churches face today.

We start with a promise from Jesus: the gates of hell will not prevail against His true church.  But there has been compromise and complacency as well as enormous challenges facing the professing church in America. We’re seeing a decline in many denominations and church attendance, the growing influence of secular humanism within many churches, and the increasing threat of discrimination and eventual persecution.

Paul says in Romans 8:37 that we are more than conquerors through Jesus, but we seem to be raising the white flag of spiritual and cultural surrender.  Could that be because we are conforming to this world and changing the eternal message of the gospel to fit our human understanding and prejudices?

A Confused and Lost Generation?

The human mind, created beautifully by God but corrupted by sin, is subject to believing lies are truth if the lie is reinforced often enough.  Today’s generation of young people have been continuously lied to by Hollywood, the media, and a public education system that denies the glory of God. Too many are being indoctrinated into a life of futility and hopelessness because they are looking for meaning and security everywhere except God and His Word.Tyler Geffeny of Ratio Christi Ministries speaks at conferences and churches worldwide challenging and equipping Christians to become better biblical apologists to reach young people with the hope of Jesus Christ in a world that leads many to pursue self gratification.  Tyler joins Mike and David to discuss current trends and the agendas the church is up against, especially in the American university system.

When Church Becomes A Business

This morning we look at the continued fallout from a couple of Chicago area megachurches that allowed secular principles and techniques to influence how they conduct church. Harvest Bible Church is reeling from the financial corruption of now dismissed Pastor James McDonald while Willow Creek is back in the news as liberal Democrat Senator Cory Booker is under fire from the LGBTQ community for speaking at the Willow Creek Leadership Summit a few years back.

In our first segment we visit with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss activity and strategy within the Wisconsin legislature. Pro-life legislation is being proposed knowing radical WI Governor Tony Evers will veto it. Is there a plan behind passing legislation that has little to no chance of being enacted?

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.
