Dismantling the Lies of the Enemy

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 3:15

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?

Seeking Signs, Wonders and Miracles

In Matthew 12:38, the scribes and Pharisees asked Jesus for “another sign” not long after he had healed the sick and a demon-possessed man who was also blind. Jesus responded:”An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign but none will be given except the sign of the prophet Jonah”That “sign” was when Jesus would rise from the grave to prove His deity and God’s power over sin and death.Many Christians and churches today are continually seeking more signs and wonders.  Let’s be clear: some are sincere believers in Christ, but their continual need for additional signs and miracles testifies to the weakness of their faith in the completed work of Jesus on the cross.  We look at a critique from The Gospel Coalition regarding Bethel Church in Redding, California and its leaders Bill and and Beni Johnson, and we discuss the pitfalls of this charismatic movement.In our first segment we visit with author David Richardson to discuss content in his book Transparent – about how our deeply held assumptions can deceive us and hinder us in our walk with God.

Are Americans Losing Faith in Church?

With each new survey we see an emerging pattern regarding religion and Americans:  A growing disillusionment with institutionalized religion.  Young people are leaving “church” in massive numbers, and even older people are starting to question why they should be affiliated with a church or denomination.  Mike and Crash explore the numbers and reasons, including a very related story of the rise and fall of Pastor James McDonald, a mega-church pastor whose teaching show was carried by hundreds of Christian radio Stations until he recently was fired over a serious financial scandal which uncovered a lavish lifestyle that has left his former church on the verge of bankruptcy.In our first segment we visit with Conservative icon David Horowitz to discuss his new book “Dark Agenda: The War to Destroy Christian America”.

Is Christian Persecution in America Just Around the Corner?

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.
