Christian Concerns, Comments, and Questions

Pastors and elders are called to be strong, loving, spiritually mature men that guard and protect the flock of Jesus Christ assigned to them.  They are to stand and fight against disguised wolves that bring false doctrines into the church, guarding the people Jesus has entrusted to them. But a growing number of Christians are seeing that biblical job description morphing into something completely different, where some pastors are corporate leaders and CEOs instead of teachers, nurturers and protectors.  This is one of the subjects on the minds of our listeners in today’s Q&A podcast.

The Religion of Socialism

Make no mistake, socialism is not the end game, but merely the means by which a people enslave themselves and worship government instead of God.  Socialism inevitably leads to godless Communism.  It is every bit the false religion that Islam is, setting us up to follow and worship Anti-Christ when he appears on the scene.With a growing number of Americans approving of Socialism, Democrats selling out to it, and a church that stands neutral in the battle, America is possibly on the brink of leading the world to the feet of Anti-Christ when he presents himself as “savior” with solutions to the world’s problems.The amazing thing about those who desire Communism is how they ignore history and the facts; it has always destroyed nations and economies that have enacted it, and the very system socialists claim will free us, instead enslaves us.  Our nation is going through it’s Romans 1 moment in which God has turned us over to a debased mind to believe lies and act with unrestrained evil.Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council joins us in our first segment to discuss the importance of knowing what and who you are voting for, and the increasing pressure being put on Christians to conform to this world.

Confusion by Creating Doubt About Truth

Over the eight years on this show, we have covered a lot of news and trends in society as well as within the church.  One of our primary focuses has been to expose the darkness and draw a clear picture of a world growing more and more evil.  The vast majority of our public institutions have sold out to Satan’s agenda of globalism under the rule of his puppet, Anti-Christ.  In just the past three years we have witnessed new levels of evil being called good by Hollywood, the media, public education, the courts, and the government:Homosexual marriage legalized by the Supreme CourtChristian business owners and individuals denied their freedom of religious expressionThe rapid advancement of gender confusion and dysphoriaThe celebration of (legal) infanticideSo what are Christians to do? Get back to the basics of our faith in Christ, and don’t be surprised. The Word of God tells us that in the latter days evil would become the norm in our society.  God also tells us that one called “Anti-Christ” will rise to power and deceive many into thinking he is actually the savior of this world.  But before Anti-Christ is revealed something very important and tragic happens:  there is a great apostasy within the professing Christian Church.  (2 Thessalonians)We will continue to point out the growing evil of this world as it marches to worshiping Satan through Anti-Christ one day soon.  We will equip you with how to disarm and confront the growing deception of this world and its institutions.  But we will also focus more on this growing apostasy within the professing church that the Bible says many professing Christians will fall for.  Today we look at what Mike believes is Step One of Satan’s master plan to bring persecution upon true believers in America in the next few years.  How many churches will remain faithful to God when persecution comes – and how many will submit to Caesar instead?

Learning By Asking Questions

Jesus was the master of asking the right questions to reveal the hearts of men and expose their hearts and their bad thought process.  On our Listener Comments and Questions podcast, Mike shares a conversation he had with a man who was defending a woman’s “right to abortion” and justifying it with God’s Word.  We’ll discuss how we can master the art of asking the right questions to get to the real heart of any matter.We are also very excited as Mike’s new books are now available through Aneko Press as well as Amazon. Mike opens today’s podcast talking about why he believes investing in his new books. (All proceeds support Stand Up For the Truth Radio) It is crucial to help Christians recognize and refute the Satan’s deceptions that have taken over the world and are infiltrating a growing number of Christian Churches.

Education Matters: The Battle For Truth

Satan and this fallen world has an agenda to conform us into its image.  God also has an agenda. Disciples of Jesus Christ are to be transformed into His image in thought, word and deed.  Obviously these are mutually exclusive agendas, so it’s difficult if not impossible to find a compromise between these conflicting agendas.  Today we look at one of the powerful tools the enemy uses to advance his godless agenda: public education.  Mike and David are joined by Dr. Duke Pesta of Freedom Project Media and the Dr. Duke Show to see how government-run schools and progressive universities are putting the squeeze on anyone who does not conform to its humanist views.We discuss the  sad but not surprising news from the U.S. Senate vote Monday in which Democrats refused to even recognize that a baby surviving an abortion is entitled to life and medical care.  We also look at the decision made yesterday by the divided United Methodist Church regarding its stance on same-sex marriage and LGBTQ clergy.

Comments and Questions Every Friday

Every week we receive so many great comments and questions from listeners to Stand Up for the Truth. We’ll get to as many as we can today!

Question of the week: What are your thoughts on the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) having Nancy Pelosi speak to Christian college leaders recently?

A few responses: “one of the many reasons I no longer call myself Evangelical,” “What could she even remotely bring of value to a discussion?” “That’s like having an atheist preach from the pulpit,” and “I think the NAE needs to share the gospel with Nancy Pelosi and the importance of repentance and obeying God’s Word.”

We also share a stirring testimony from a Christian woman that had an abortion years ago and kept it to herself. Now after all this time she has received the forgiveness and healing of Jesus, and has been encouraging the body of Christ to stop being silent on this pivotal issue.

We also discuss:

Home churches: when is it time to consider leaving your seeker-sensitive or unbibilcal church?
What has happened to rational, respectful debate and dialogue?
Pastors that rarely ever preach on the Old Testament
What does it mean to enter into the rest of God, Hebrews 4?

Supporting Deception by Our Silence

What people need now is more clarity and less confusion. Media, government and public education continue to push an agenda clouded in moral relativism, appealing to our desires and emotions but short on facts and reality. A political example would be the “New Green Deal” being advanced by Democratic presidential candidates. It sounds wonderful, but it glosses over the potential destruction it could bring to our economy and government infringement on our way of life.

What we all need is more clarity and less confusion. For Christians, we need church leaders who are clear about the Word and doctrines of God, leaders who stand strong against the deception of the enemy. But instead of clarity we seem to be getting neutrality, silence, or double speak from too many Christian leaders in America.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to discuss how and why the church must bring biblical clarity in the midst of confusion and equip believers to do ministry and be light in a dark world.

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?

Trust, Confidence and Fear

The life of a disciple of Jesus Christ can be complex at times.  The Bible tells us we should trust God in all matters.  It says we can approach the throne of God in confidence with our petitions.  And yet it also says to fear God.  Trust, confidence and fear:  Not always easy to reconcile all three of those, yet this is the life we are called to as believers, particularly in a world that increasingly hates God and we who are disciples of Jesus.

Debunking Fallacies and Doubts about the Bible

Two facts are indisputable these days. First, the world is growing more evil. Darkness is increasing and God’s Word is being openly mocked and ridiculed. The second fact is too many believers, people who profess to be Christians, are ignorant of the truth of God’s Word. This leads to being ineffective in bearing fruit, living the Christian life and sharing the gospel of salvation with others.  This not only opens the door for confusion, chaos, or crisis in society – but also in the church.Our guest today, Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries, is tackling these problems head on, speaking, traveling, and by producing a video series called “deBUNKED,” answering key questions and refuting statements of skeptics. Carl is teaching Christians how to be effective in sharing the gospel and be better apologists for God.
