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

Dave Wager: Living vs Loving In Our World

Mike and David are off today. Crash Connell visits with Dave Wager about what the Bible teaches believers how we should live and love in the world around us.  What is our motivation?

A Better Way to Educate and Equip Youth

The accepted American formula for success includes graduating High School and then going off to College to establish a foundation for success as an adult.  The only problem is this:  it isn’t working!  Youth are graduating College often with useless degrees, indoctrinated into an anti-biblical worldview, strapped with massive debt and a feeling of hopelessness.

This morning Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash Connell to discuss a practical alternative to preparing students for life—one that is based on the Word and practical teachings of God.

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?

The Conflict of Freedom vs. Islam

Islam is a false religion of very strict laws and teachings.  Adulterers and homosexuals are punished severely and women are treated as second class citizens or at times, treated as property.  This directly contradicts the laws of our nation and is completely incompatible with the platform of the Democrat Party that celebrates homosexuality and transgenderism and touts radical feminism.  Yet the radical left embraces Islam at every turn, and if it reaches the point Sharia Law is imposed in America, even far left followers could be thrown in jail or possibly even killed for being “infidels.”Today, Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now disciple of Jesus Christ, joins Mike and David to discuss this as well as the “Islamization” of Europe and the pending Middle East Peace Plan that President Trump will be introducing next month.  Is peace with Islam really possible?

Blaming Everyone but Ourselves: Where has Personal Responsibility Gone?

We live in the growing era of triggering, snowflakes and safe spaces.  Most young people are being indoctrinated into the belief that their opinion or worldview is the only valid one and anyone who dares question them is a threat.  It all goes back to Adam, who when confronted by God about his sin blamed Eve and God Himself for his poor choice.

In our final segment this morning we look at an interesting perspective by David Hoffman at the Christian Post, claiming that all the confusion in society and the church is perhaps God’s way of beginning to separate the wheat from the chaff spoken of in Matthew 3:12 by John the Baptist.

Pastor Randy White joins us this morning to look at what the Bible says about personal responsibility and how taking responsibility for our own beliefs and actions is healthy for us as Christians.

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.

A Frustrating and Disappointing Life?

We all get frustrated or disappointed with life at times.  Things do not go as well as we think they should or as well as we think we deserve.  The world tells us we can have our “best life now” and that the world is there for our pleasure and enjoyment, and when it doesn’t work out that way we feel the frustration of life’s daily challenges and obstacles.As disciples of Jesus Christ our attitude should be different.  God’s Word tells us that Jesus has overcome the world on our behalf…so why do we still struggle with life’s challenges and disappointments?  Could it be that our expectations of God are arrogant and self-serving?  Could it be that we have not taken the time to really know the God we claim to worship and trust?Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash to discuss how a lack of knowing and trusting in God’s nature and character can lead to a life of frustration, depression or even defeat.

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.
