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 Words Obama Uses Are Meaningful

I have heard a variety of adjectives used by his detractors to describe President Obama from naive to ignorant to evil.  He claims to be a Christian, yet many are convinced–bolstered by some of his own words–that he...

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?

Technology: Servant or Master?

Smart phones that track your location; televisions and computers that can watch you; medical implants that monitor and treat us medically; and new super computers that some hope will learn how to think and act “human”. Depending on your perspective the future of technology can sound exciting or frightening.

There are serious scientists backed by rich individuals who actually believe that in the next 10-20 years human beings might have the ability to “live forever” as we integrate computer technology with human flesh. And the corporation driving this vision is none other than Google: a corporation that has much more control over you and me than we even realize.

Does the Bible speak to this insane search for human immortality? How do we respond as Christians to this advance in technology? Pastor Carl Gallups, a radio show host and best selling author joins us for a biblical perspective on technology along with a discussion on end times prophecy.
