Forget the ‘Good Old Days’ and Press On!

It’s better to go to a funeral and get a reality check than go to a party. Why? Perspective. Death is a reminder for us (ten out of ten people die) so what are we doing with the life God has given us?

Yes, we might have a hard time forgetting – regardless of whether or not the experiences were happy or sad.

Some of us might look back and say those were happier times while others had such horrific childhoods or painful life experiences, they’re doing the best to overcome the effects of the past. For the Christian, “to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:21). Joy is a fruit of the Spirit and the joy of the Lord is our strength. Happiness is temporary and depends on circumstances as well as our perception of things. True joy however, is a gift from God. Press on in Him, dear friend.

Open Warfare on Christian Values and Conscience

The City of DePere, Wisconsin–where our radio station resides–is proposing an “anti-discrimination” mandate that would openly challenge and threaten Christian churches, ministries and businesses, mandating that they accommodate people who are confused about their gender. It strictly prohibits any place of public accommodation from “denying directly or indirectly any person the full enjoyment of goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages and accommodations wholly or partly for a discriminatory reason.”

This language is so broad that it will no doubt be used to force people of religious conscience to serve and even hire people who openly live a lifestyle contradictory to the Bible’s teachings. And if you do not think this would be a foot in the door to eventually force churches to hire homosexuals and transgenders and perform same-sex wedding ceremonies, I have a bridge I would like to sell you.

This is not just about bathrooms. It is about the government opening the door for business owners and religious organizations to accommodate, include, serve and hire people who oppose and hate God and Christianity. When that happens, we cease to be a unique people called by God to be sanctified and stand out in a world full of sin.

After covering this story today we also read your comments and questions from the week.

Reading the Owner’s Manual

You purchase that brand new smart television or i-phone, excited about the latest gadget in your life. You open the package and read the user’s manual, making certain you completely understand all the instructions and features of your newest toy. You memorize those instructions and features and enjoy your new gadget for many years.

God has given us a tremendous “user’s manual” that goes into detail about who He is and what we can expect in life as disciples of Jesus Christ. But do we approach the Bible with as much passion and desire to learn as we do the latest gadget in our lives? Or do we really think “Siri” has all the answers?

Some might say “Well the Bible is too complex and difficult to understand!” But our guest this morning says “not so”: that if we take the time to make God’s Word the most important book in our lives that we can understand it and allow it to guide us through the ups and downs of life. We’re joined this morning by Pastor Randy White discussing how we should study the bible and understand its rich depths in guiding us through the good and bad times.

World Religions and the Challenge of Religious Freedom

Freedom is not an easy concept, particularly when it comes to freedom of religious beliefs and conscience. While our nation was clearly established on Judeo-Christian principles from the Bible, our Founding Fathers were also very clear that government should never enforce a national religion upon its citizens. But at what cost do we allow any religion in the U.S.?

This morning we cover a controversy out of Deleware, where a local Muslim Imam opened a government meeting with a quote from the Quran–the very book that calls for Muslim domination of the world and persecution of anyone who opposes Islam.

In our first segment we check in with Roger Patterson the general Editor for an intriguing and informative new book World Religions and Cults – Volume 3.

The Supreme Ruler is Above the Supreme Court

Today Mike and Dave discuss the heated battle over the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court with guest, Julaine Appling. There are debates and fireworks over the possibility of the ‘nuclear option’ – which Harry Reid and the Democrats put in place – being used as a last resort in the face of opposition and filibusters. it’s just politics and this too shall pass.

Just as important is how Gorsuch will decide on issues and vote on cases presented to the Supreme Court once he is confirmed. We can speculate, but no one knows for sure. What we do know is Washington D.C. is just as divided as our nation politically and spiritually.

Trusting God in Difficult Times

God cannot lie and He has given us promises that he will never abandon us as His children. When we face tough times do we lean on God or our own flawed human understanding? Is God the first place we turn? Or the last resort once we have failed to solve our own problems?

Joining us this morning is Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch.

The Unintended Power of One Supreme Court Seat

The stakes couldn’t be higher, and the threats are coming in – even before President Trump decided to select a Supreme Court nominee to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died last week. And since we know Joe Biden voters have proven themselves more than capable over the last six months of destroying people’s lives, businesses and cities, we know these are real threats.

CNN entertainer, Don Lemon said if Democrats win the presidency and take the U.S. Senate, “We’re going to have to blow up the entire system;” Wake up, Christian friends, and rally the remnant of true believers, those who live and vote what the Bible teaches. The conflict for the soul of America has reached a boiling point. Souls, truth, liberty, and righteousness are on the line. And by the way, your children are watching.

Pastor Dan Fisher: The Black Robed Regiment & Romans 13

For years, spiritual leaders have been shackling believers with a flawed interpretation of Romans 13 – especially as to how it applies to citizens living in a republic like ours. Consequently, Christian people who would normally stand against tyranny, believe that they owe slavish, unlimited submission to their government.

Patriot Pastor Dan Fisher tackles this controversial topic and proves conclusively that Christians not only have the right, but the responsibility to speak up about evil and stand up to tyrannical leaders – no matter the cost.
