We Were Created to Work and Worship!

It’s been well established that work and human interaction is vital to our overall health. Quarantines aren’t supposed to be for healthy people. Walmart, Costco, Target, and Home Depot are crowded. Does one of the most important liberties in the U.S. Constitution cover corporations and abortion businesses, but it doesn’t apply to churches and small businesses? I understand we want to obey governing authorities, but civil government does not have unlimited authority!

Abortion businesses have also stayed open – because in our “civilized” society, those in power determined it is essential to have access to murder your unwanted offspring. But the right to freely and peacefully assemble with those we love in the comfort of our churches is denied.

How Christian Students Handle Argumentative Atheist Teachers

Our youth are headed back to school—grade school, high school or college.  There is a good possibility they may run into atheist teachers who will present theories and “teachings” that contradict the Word of God.  How can we prepare our Christian students for a potential onslaught of propaganda and secular theory that will encourage them to abandon the Word of God for what is presented as “scientific fact” these days?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins Mike and Crash this morning to share ideas on how we can equip our students to respectfully interact with public school teachers. They also touch on Jay’s Question of The Month from his website.

Affirming the Truth of God’s Word

If you listen to atheists, secularists and even some who claim to be Christians, you might think the Bible is nothing more than a bunch of man-made stories, full of confusion and contradictions.  But in reality, it is the only thing we can look to for lasting truth.  God – who has always existed and always will exist, knows all things past, present and future, and is the only one who can speak absolute truth.  But even within many self-professed born-again believers there is doubt over the truth of the Bible.

How can we know for sure that the Bible is true?  Pastor Jeff Solwold of Calvary Chapel in Madison, Wisconsin joins us to share how we can know and trust the truth God has given us in His Word.  You can hear Pastor Solwold’s teachings at 5am weekdays on our flagship station, Q90 FM.

In our final segment we talk about how the liberal media, whether it be television or social media, can no longer be trusted to report actual news and have all fallen into camps of propaganda for their political and cultural biases.

Assumptions Can Be Dangerous

The dictionary defines an assumption as, “assuming something is true or taking a statement for granted.”  When we believe something important is truth, and base our life and entire belief system around it only to find out the assumption was wrong, it changes the way we see everything.  Sadly, too often in public education and media we are being led to assume certain false beliefs and philosophies are true, and this deception affects how we view God and life itself.

Our guest today is David Richardson, author of “Transparent: How to See Through the Powerful Assumptions that Control You.”  We discuss three types of “assumers” and how their assumptions either lead them to truth or deception.

Who are the Nephilim?

Genesis 6:1-4 are very controversial verses to many Christians.  They deal with a group called the “Nephilim” and they have been the center of controversy and various biblical interpretations for thousands of years.

Tim Chaffey has written a new book on these fascinating creatures, attempting to answer many questions Christians have about the Nephilim.  Were they fallen angels or simply sinful men?  What did they do and why?  And if they are fallen angels have we heard the last from them?

The Spiritual Side of Radical Liberalism

It would be a tragic mistake to think that the seismic lurch to the far left by radical politic leaders in our nation is either temporary, isolated or without spiritual motivation.  Rather than a political movement, radical Liberalism is part of a movement bent on uniting the world around global humanism, turning our backs on God.  And the Word of God warns us of this tragedy as Jesus prepares to return to judge the nations.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins Mike and Crash today to discuss how the radical liberal movement in the U.S. is tied to godless globalism, and how Christianity is its number one threat and target.

Are We Being Conditioned to Hate Each Other?

The Bible tells us the one thing that should distinguish God’s people from the world is our love of Him and one another.  We are taught to not only love one another as Christians, but to forgive our enemies, pray for them, and never respond to hatred with hatred.  We are to be a unique and holy people, separate from the ways and teachings of this world.

But that is not what Satan and this world wants.  It is taunting us, hoping to provoke us toward anger and hatred, so they can say that we Christians are just as bad as them.  Once the light of the world is neutralized what is to stop the world’s march toward evil?

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins Mike LeMay and Crash Connell this morning to discuss how we are being conditioned to hate rather than love, and how we can avoid this trap.

Rampant Evil Against God’s People

In Romans 1, Paul warns that people who reject the truth of God are turned over to a reprobate mind to do unspeakable evil.  Mike and David discuss three examples of growing evil against Christians in China, Africa and India, and discuss how long it might be before that evil spreads to the U.S. and threatens Christians here.

We also talk with Pastor Frank Figueroa of Reasons For Hope Ministry on the challenges of reaching the people of Hawaii with the gospel, and talk about how our difficult challenges are God’s way of strengthening and preparing us for the work He has given us.

Chris Quintana: Reopening Churches Amidst Virus Fears, Misinformation

Pastor Chris Quintana and David Fiorazo discuss: Church leaders and pastors’ general response to opening up of churches.

Christians struggling with fear and conforming to the world; are we losing our influence? A comparison of Chinese Coronavirus and the Hong Kong Flu; and Chris’s recent interview with Doreen Virtue about Contemplative Prayer

Exposing Media Malpractice: the War on Truth

An honest evaluation and pursuit of the truth is absolutely necessary in the Christian life. But in America (and the agenda-driven media in particular), the roots of deception go deep. Absolutes are questioned, history is either forgotten or rewritten, media has lost all credibility, and good people have fallen for lies, broken promises, and identity politics.

We Were Created to Work and Worship!

It’s been well established that work and human interaction is vital to our overall health. Quarantines aren’t supposed to be for healthy people. Walmart, Costco, Target, and Home Depot are crowded. Does one of the most important liberties in the U.S. Constitution cover corporations and abortion businesses, but it doesn’t apply to churches and small businesses? I understand we want to obey governing authorities, but civil government does not have unlimited authority!

Abortion businesses have also stayed open – because in our “civilized” society, those in power determined it is essential to have access to murder your unwanted offspring. But the right to freely and peacefully assemble with those we love in the comfort of our churches is denied.
