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.

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?

How Is American Christianity Different From Biblical Christianity?

It seems there is growing confusion between biblical Christianity and American Christianity. One is eternal truth; the other resembles more of a religious system featuring a doctrine of convenience, works, prosperity, and man’s traditions.

Several missionary associations go around the world sharing the Christian faith–but are they spreading biblical Christianity or a watered down American version absent of power and truth?

Today, we welcome back Elijah Abraham to the program.

Discernment or Self-Destruction?

This morning on Stand Up For the Truth we read your comments and answer your questions from this week.  One central theme is discernment issues within Christianity.  Are we using proper biblical discernment or engaging in prideful witch hunts, looking to discredit others who we disagree with?  Also, several have chimed in regarding young people seeking “community” outside the confines of church. We discuss these and other topics of interest today.

First up, David covers our weekly Media watch segment, answering this question:  Why does secular media dedicate so much time to covering issues Americans say they don’t care about?

Controversial Issues in the Christian Church

Families and societies operate best when there are fixed standards of morality to guide our actions. In our nation, we were established upon the rule of law, supposedly giving us clear instruction what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior. As Christians we are guided by God’s Word which sets the ultimate standard for morality and acceptable behavior for us. But what happens when “normal” becomes subjective to personal feelings?

In the first segment today, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to keep an eye on world wide economic trends that point to globalism through a coming shake up in the world economy.

Is This the Future of America’s Churches?

Today we cover an intriguing article from Denver, Colorado about an “atheist church of free thinkers.” What is very interesting about the article is the words they use to describe their “community” are the same words that appeal to many young Christians these days: Free-thinking, questioning, skeptical, and conversational.

Is this the model for the future of church for our younger people? We discuss this with Dave Wager of Silver Birch ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute. Dave has worked with youth for 35 years.

The One Who Can Fix Our Problems in Public Education

In our final segment today we offer a solution to the Public Education mess we see as discussed from the crisis at Washington Middle School in Green Bay. The solution is simple, but not easy. It will require qualities sadly lacking these days: courage and conviction.

First up, we are joined by Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute to discuss legal cases threatening the religious freedom and conviction of Christians in our nation. Even his organization has been labeled a ‘hate’ group’ by the radical Southern Poverty Law Center. Has the Progressive/Marxist juggernaut grown so strong that it is inevitable? If not, what can we do to fight it and restore biblical principles in our nation?
