Fear of the Lord

Born-again believers and disciples of Jesus Christ have been saved and granted eternal life with God through our belief and faith in the gospel and Jesus Christ.  Yet we are told in God’s Word that we are to have a “fear of the Lord” even as believers.  We are also told he is our “abba Father” and that we can approach His throne with confidence.  So what is a correct “fear of the Lord” in the life of a believer?  Mike and Crash tackle that listener question today.They also discuss the dilemma of professing Christians still believing abortion is OK with God; financial scandals in Christian Churches and ministries; when is it time to leave your church?; the dilemma of so-called “Liberal Christianity”.

Redefining God: Paganism and Progressive Christianity

There is only one true God, but that has never stopped people from trying to redefine Him or find other gods to worship.  Today, humanity seems bent on identifying a god that will suit their passions and beliefs rather than surrendering to the living God who created us and sustains us. He sent His Son to save us from our sin and the eternal damnation we deserve. We begin today tackling the contradictions and unbiblical worldviews of progressive Christians – in their own words. They say there are many ways to God and “to experience the sacredness and oneness of life.” In reality, the world is not searching for the God of truth because they really want to justify their self worship and life enhancement. And there’s a very fine line between progressivism and paganism. Carl Teichrib is an author and researcher who has studied the New Age Movement as well as the coming one world religion and government the Bible warns about.  He joins us to discuss his latest book “Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Enchantment.”

Confusion by Creating Doubt About Truth

Over the eight years on this show, we have covered a lot of news and trends in society as well as within the church.  One of our primary focuses has been to expose the darkness and draw a clear picture of a world growing more and more evil.  The vast majority of our public institutions have sold out to Satan’s agenda of globalism under the rule of his puppet, Anti-Christ.  In just the past three years we have witnessed new levels of evil being called good by Hollywood, the media, public education, the courts, and the government:Homosexual marriage legalized by the Supreme CourtChristian business owners and individuals denied their freedom of religious expressionThe rapid advancement of gender confusion and dysphoriaThe celebration of (legal) infanticideSo what are Christians to do? Get back to the basics of our faith in Christ, and don’t be surprised. The Word of God tells us that in the latter days evil would become the norm in our society.  God also tells us that one called “Anti-Christ” will rise to power and deceive many into thinking he is actually the savior of this world.  But before Anti-Christ is revealed something very important and tragic happens:  there is a great apostasy within the professing Christian Church.  (2 Thessalonians)We will continue to point out the growing evil of this world as it marches to worshiping Satan through Anti-Christ one day soon.  We will equip you with how to disarm and confront the growing deception of this world and its institutions.  But we will also focus more on this growing apostasy within the professing church that the Bible says many professing Christians will fall for.  Today we look at what Mike believes is Step One of Satan’s master plan to bring persecution upon true believers in America in the next few years.  How many churches will remain faithful to God when persecution comes – and how many will submit to Caesar instead?

Learning By Asking Questions

Jesus was the master of asking the right questions to reveal the hearts of men and expose their hearts and their bad thought process.  On our Listener Comments and Questions podcast, Mike shares a conversation he had with a man who was defending a woman’s “right to abortion” and justifying it with God’s Word.  We’ll discuss how we can master the art of asking the right questions to get to the real heart of any matter.We are also very excited as Mike’s new books are now available through Aneko Press as well as Amazon. Mike opens today’s podcast talking about why he believes investing in his new books. (All proceeds support Stand Up For the Truth Radio) It is crucial to help Christians recognize and refute the Satan’s deceptions that have taken over the world and are infiltrating a growing number of Christian Churches.

A Quiet but Important Schism

There is a growing schism going on in within Christianity in America. It has been slow and subtle, but it is reaching the point where serious disciples of Jesus Christ are starting to take notice. This schism is centered around two important points:

Is the Christian walk about salvation, or holiness?
The Church’s relationship with the world.

Jesus warned that many who called Him “lord” would be condemned to eternal hell. Jesus and the Apostles warned that a great apostasy would infect the professing church in the days leading up to the Lord’s return. The Bible is clear that evil would grow exponentially in the final days and that Christians are to be a unique, holy people set aside for the glory of God.  This means the true Church of Jesus Christ should be increasingly contradictory to the teachings and behaviors of this wicked world. Instead, some churches are intent on looking more like the world.

Mike and Crash discuss this great schism and how Christians who are serious about pursuing holy living can determine if they are in a church that is increasingly unique, or one that is conforming to the world.

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.
