In the Word of God the word “discern” means to test, examine and scrutinize. In other words to carefully examine what is being presented and make a correct judgment consistent with the teachings of the Bible. But in some circles these days the word discernment has become another word for attack, discredit and destroy.
Discernment based on the Word of God is necessary and crucial to our growth in the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ. Discernment is a gift to make sure we are not deceived and led astray by false teachers who preach a false gospel. But these days some who claim to represent discernment ministries use their resources to hammer any professing Christian who doesn’t believe exactly what they do about any or every teaching in the Word of God.
There is an important role to be played by discernment ministries, but how can we tell which ones are solid and biblically based and which are out to garner attention or divide the Body of Christ in a way that is harmful?
Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss this and help us understand how to discern between those serving the Body of Christ and those who are self-serving. We also look at the significance of the anniversary of Israel’s seventieth year of existence in modern times.Read More
The Word of God teaches us the true enemy we fight is not flesh and blood but demonic spiritual powers. And God has given us the necessary weapons to fight this enemy who seeks to destroy the souls of all men. But are we as Christians fighting as effectively as we can with the powerful weapons God has provided?
This morning we talk with Eric Barger of Take a Stand Ministries.Read More
False teachers and teachings are infiltrating the professing Church in America. There is a dynamic tension in the Bible: We are to the best of our ability get along with all professing believers, yet we are called to speak out against false teachings that lead people astray. How do we strike this delicate but important balance?
Pastor Saiko Woods discusses the divide in America and in the church, but most importantly, contending for the faith without being contentious. David Fiorazo has another “Media Watch” segment to help us understand the dangers of the agenda of secular media.Read More

The Old Testament Law and works vs. grace – the law is good but cannot save us
So-called “progressive Christianity,” a cancer to the church

Today we take another look at the state of Christianity in America and discuss the real hostility and discrimination against believers in Christ, as well as the possibility the gospel may soon be banned in our nation. We discuss the so-called Equality Act and its threat to Bible-believing Christians, and explain how the church itself has practically opened the door to welcome discrimination against God’s truth and the gospel. Why? Because we want to be loved by a world that hates Jesus and His Word.Read More
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 3:15Read More
