Disproportionate Reaction to Religions

There is an interesting dichotomy when we look at how two major religions–Christianity and Islam–are increasingly perceived and treated in our nation.

Biblical Christianity calls on us to love all people, even those who are directly opposed to and violate God’s Word. Islam calls for punishment and even death to classes of people such as homosexuals or those who call themselves “transgender”.

Biblical Christianity teaches that men should honor and cherish their wives; Islam teaches that wives are more like property than cherished partners. They can be beaten or divorced on a whim.

So which of these religions should be the one feared by women and homosexuals? Islam. Yet it continues to get a pass with feminists, the radical homosexual movement and the media, while Christianity is framed as a religion of hate and bigotry. Which religion is being kicked out of schools and shouted down in public? Christianity, while Islam is promoted celebrated in public schools and feminist circles.

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now Evangelist and apologist for biblical Christianity joins us this morning to discuss this contradiction from reality.

A Stumbling Block to a World Serving Satan

President Trump’s proclamation of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has set another prophetic wheel in motion to show the world’s hatred for Israel, just as the Bible foretold. And the influence of Satan on world leaders and governments is slowly bringing the world to the final stage where all nations will stand in opposition to God.

One sign of just how blind people of this world have become is the acceptance of Islam as a “religion of peace” in spite of its history and leaders calling for death to Christians and Jews along with anyone who opposes Muslim domination of this world. Europe, through increased Muslim immigration, is slowly turning into a war zone where non-Muslims are attacked and “Sharia Zones” are being set up including “No Go Zones” where police won’t even enter. Despite these developments, Europe’s leaders lack the courage to admit their mistakes and the grave dangers they have put their citizens under.

And even here in the U.S. we see Christian Churches opposing Israel and refusing to see Islam for what it is: a socio-political, economic system wanting global domination and using a false deity to advance its goals. Meanwhile, millions of Muslims risk eternal separation from God because we as Christians lack the courage and wisdom to share the truth of the gospel with them.

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer, joins us this morning. Elijah travels the world speaking to persecuted Christians and educating pastors on how to understand and combat Islam.

The Spirit of Antichrist

1 John 4:1-3: “Beloved do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.”

Matter settled: Islam is a spirit of antichrist because it denies that Jesus is God in the flesh…so why are so many professing Christians believing that Christians and Muslims worship the same god?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer sheds some light on this deception.

In our final segment we look at the continuing hypocrisy of the left regarding freedom of speech and religious expression.

Prosperity Gospel, Racism, and Seeking Worldly Answers

When we step back and look at our nation in the big picture, it is not an encouraging view. Sixty million babies have been murdered through abortion; violence and hatred are on the rise; politicians and leaders are seeking answers from man rather than God, and young people wondering if God made a mistake with their gender. Sadly, the Church generally seems to have little power or influence to produce biblical change and defend the truth.

And yet, the gates of hell will not prevail against Jesus’ church, and the gospel is being preached around the world leading thousands to saving faith in Christ every day, even in the darkness of Muslim dominated nations.

One of those men of God leading the charge is Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim now committed disciple of Jesus Christ. He travels the world equipping believers to share the gospel and become committed disciples of Jesus. Elijah has noticed a stark contrast to how we view church and Christianity in our nation compared to new believers living in places where just proclaiming Jesus might cost you everything!

The Islamic Dilemma

The Bible is clear that as dedicated Christians we are to love all men, even our enemies, and share the gospel of eternal hope with them, including the forgiveness of sin, repentance, and eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ alone. But this is easier to do with some people than others. It may be easier to reach out to groups like Mormons, Buddhists or atheists because there is little fear of retaliation. Some Muslims, on the other hand, can pose quite the challenge.

While the majority of Muslims are not radical jihadists and want to live in peace, there is a growing minority being trained to kill Christians and Jews and destroy our way of life. So when we approach Muslims with the gospel how do we set aside our fears and see them as God sees them – made in His image but in need of salvation through Jesus?

Elijah Abraham is a former Muslim and now a committed disciple of Jesus Christ who travels the world training pastors and equipping churches to reach Muslims with the gospel. On today’s program, we discuss the growth and threat of Muslim terrorism and how this should not discourage us to love Muslims and share the gospel with them.

Islam, World Events, & More Liberal Hypocrisy

This is telling: a teacher in California promotes transgender propaganda to her students without parental permission; a parent complains, and the school system says the teacher has the right to share her personal views. But a High School football coach kneels by himself to pray after a game, some players join him, and the liberal 9th Circus Court of Appeals says he acted unconstitutionally by “imposing” his private views on the students who attended the game. So public employees can freely express their anti-biblical views if they are liberal and a Christian public employee cannot privately express his beliefs. Is there not a glaring double standard here?

In our first segment, we are joined by Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer who travels the world equipping Christians to share the gospel with Muslims. We ask him about Replacement international terrorism, Replacement theology, and why Islam is generally seen as a darling religion of the left when the Quran calls for imprisonment or death to homosexuals and infidels, and condones the mistreatment of women.

Living for Christ in the Muslim World

When we talk with Christian missionaries working in the Muslim world, we often hear remarkable testimonies about Muslims committing their lives to Jesus Christ. As biblical Christianity grows in heavily Muslim nations where the church is persecuted, we seem to see almost the reverse happening in America. A growing number of professing Christians in America, spiritually softened by our easy way of life, are growing lukewarm in their faith. New Christian converts in third world nations are on fire and unashamedly in love with God and His Word. Is this another obvious sign we desperately need revival?

We continually look at the idea of revival as an American thing, but is spiritual revival happening in Muslim nations because of oppression and persecution? Has our vast wealth in America become the enemy of our souls?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again disciple of Jesus Christ travels around the world sharing the gospel in Muslim nations and training pastors and Christians to reach Muslims with the gospel. Today we take a hard-hitting look at Christianity in America and around the world.

When Political Correctness Runs Rampant

This just a week after struggling comedienne, Kathy Griffin held up a severed head of President Donald Trump, days after a New York City Public Theater production of Shakespeare in the Park stabs a ‘Trump’ lookalike (Caesar) to death in a performance of ‘Julius Caesar,’ and days after Senator Bernie Sanders, in anger, suggested Christians that believe the Bible and work for public office.

Today’s guest is Elijah Abraham, is the founder and executive director of Living Oasis Ministries. Elijah’s story began in Baghdad in 1965 when he was born to an Iraqi Shi’ite Muslim family. Elijah joins us to discuss current events in light of Bible prophecy as well as the political correctness running rampant in America.

The Truth about American Christianity & Islam

Today’s guest is Elijah Abraham of Living Oasis Ministries. We discuss the president’s visit to the Middle East and what’s on the table as he meets with Israeli leaders as well and Palestinian Authority leaders. Will America still defend Israel if they are attacked? What about moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem? Does the Trump administration still oppose a two-state solution?

Where Christians and the American church are concerned, too many churches and leaders have backed away from preaching the hard truths of Scripture while many of us struggle with conforming to this world. Since the average believer has not been well equipped to do ministry and accurately handle God’s Word, what are some of the steps we can take to be more disciplined in prayer and Bible study so we can be effective and fruitful witnesses for Jesus Christ?

Islam: A Religion or Political System?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim, who understands Islam fully. America’s history of religious freedom according to the U.S. Constitution leaves many Christians confused. How should we perceive Islam as well as the various levels of commitment Muslims seem to have. Some are moderate and yet others believe the radical teachings of Muhammad. Others are embarrassed by the extremists and terrorists, but do not speak up and denounce their actions. How do we process all the different angles in this discussion?

What is the correct balance Christians should have in our relationship with Muslims? How do we acknowledge the violent teachings in the Quran as reality, yet look at Muslims as lost people with whom we need to speak the truth in love? The gospel must still be preached and our mission and purpose does not change.

The Three Stages of Islamic Jihad

America and the Christian churches in it are rapidly reaching a crossroad when it comes to Islam. Islam in its teachings calls for world wide domination and submission to Allah, the false god of Islam. Unbelievers, those Islam refers to as “infidels,” either convert to Islam, face very punitive restrictions, or sometimes they are put to death. This is the “jihad” taught in the Quran. Jihad has three unique stages, each one building power upon the other. As Muslim presence increases, pressure is applied on a nation and its people to conform or face dire consequences. Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer joins us this morning. to explain what’s happening in the states and what Christians can do.

Islam & Spiritual Warfare

Everyone wants to know what President Trump is going to do about the spread of radical Islam in our nation and around the world. Have we ever asked ourselves what we can do about it?

Do we see this as a human or spiritual war? Are we trying to fight the spread of an anti-christ religion with human weapons, leaving behind our spiritual weapons like prayer? Elijah Abraham joins us this morning to discuss Islam, prayer and spiritual warfare.

Did You Ever Imagine These Things Could Happen?

The response to our Listener shows on Fridays where we talk about your questions and comments has been overwhelmingly positive! It’s been great hearing from so many Christians every week, but is has now reached the point where we have continually been unable to get to all of the comments in a one hour Friday show. This has been a consistent pattern over the last several months and we typically carry them over to the next week. So in our second segment today, we will take some additional time to read your comments and answer your questions.

First, we will listen to and discuss a thought-provoking message from Jan Markell of Understanding the Times Radio titled “I Never Thought I Would See the Day.” This program just aired over the weekend across the country. We’ll also share our thoughts on the events and happenings in our lifetime that have been disappointing or shocking.

Tomorrow we will continue with YOUR comments and questions about: Billy Graham, gun control, Christian marriages, transgenderism, the political divide, Roman Catholic “last rites,” and believers being unequally yoked – to mention a few!

Religious Freedom Update, and the Death of Billy Graham

God’s Word instructs parents to raise their children based on His Word and principles. But as our beloved nation strays more and more from God there is a slow but steady movement to limit the free speech of Christians and raise our children as citizens of the world, void of Christian values. Through federal legislation supporting the United Nations’ attempt to indoctrinate our children, we are seeing the authority of parents undermined at every turn.

This morning we look at a few chilling court cases that underscore the agenda to indoctrinate our children and usurp parental authority over them. In our first segment we are joined by Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute to look the continuing attacks on Christians in America. Are we on the brink of losing our freedoms to raise our children in the way of the Lord and live by our Christian values?

We also touch on the breaking news of Billy Graham’s death. He passed away this morning at 99 years old.

Addressing the Growing Crisis in Public Education

Last week, an expelled student known for erratic behavior and run-ins with police returned to his former High School in Florida and murdered 17 people. Predictably, the liberal media’s primary message and solution is “more gun control”—a simplistic response to a complex crisis. Rather than looking deeper at the spiritual, it is made a political, Democrat vs Republican issue, which I believe is irresponsible.

Instead of taking the time to understand the underlying causes for these tragedies, liberals continue to blame guns–inanimate objects that only do what the person holding them makes them do. Why does the left spout this continuing response to violence? Because the only alternative is to acknowledge that sinful man can be evil—a direct contradiction to their liberal and often atheist beliefs.

So what can be done? Dr. Randy White joins us to discuss public education issues as well as some possible solutions. Then we’ll tackle the latest fad hitting higher education in our nation: White privilege.

Worldview Matters: Truth or Consequences?

After thousands of years of constant attacks, opposition, and intense scrutiny by critics − warfare that no other work has ever seen − the Bible has withstood the onslaught, has gained credibility, and the Christian faith has continued to thrive throughout the world. Why?
No other written work has the power to convict people of their sin, the ability to change human nature, and offers a permanent solution to man’s greatest problem.

Consider the uniqueness of the Bible: a record of God’s message to His creation, miracles, history, an honest assessment of evil and the heart of man, unique claims, a plan of salvation, and a specific description and vision of the end times.
