On this podcast, we catch up on recent news stories and share some headlines as well as commentary – always from a Christian perspective. David and Crash discuss literally dozens of news stories and never back away from the most pressing issues of the day. As true believers, it’s clear we are living in the most challenging, exciting, and prophetic times in world history. Be challenged, encouraged, and discerning! Nothing should surprise us knowing we are one day closer to the return of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ!Read More
Dave Wager and Crash discuss biblical discernment on another live broadcast of Stand Up For The Truth. Everything in Christianity has its counterfeit—false repentance, false confession, false conversion, false zeal, false love, counterfeit works of the Holy Spirit, counterfeit gifts of the Holy Spirit, even counterfeit life.Read More
God is righteous, just and holy. He gets angry and will one day pour out His wrath upon a fallen, sinful world and many will perish. But He is also loving and kind; patient and long suffering; He is merciful and offers His grace to those who believe in Jesus Christ.
Our human level of thinking and understanding cannot readily reconcile these attributes—they often seem contradictory to us. Dave Wager joins Mike and Crash to discuss God’s attributes as we look at the Book of Nahum.Read More
In segment 1, we have a discussion about what so-called Liberal Christianity is and how it is infecting a growing number of churches and denominations. We connect with author Dan Jensen. His excellent book is titled A False Kind of Christianity.
As we see more young people and leaders abandoning the Christian faith, it is important we assess their thought process and motives in doing so. (They are taking some followers with them and away from the truth.) To simply argue about whether or not they were ever truly converted believers can be unproductive.
The reality is that many younger people either want nothing to do with historical, Biblical Christianity or they are finding churches and denominations that are redefining and diluting Christian doctrines to line up with their worldly values and philosophies.
In our final segment today Mike and David share a thought-provoking perspective from John Stonestreet of BreakPoint about why this is happening and how we might address it.Read More
A series of recent surveys asked youth who they trust for advice on important moral and practical decisions. Police, government, and even parents were on the list. But what was at the top? College Professors! This is obviously bad news for them, our country, and the Christian Church since the vast majority of College professors are progressive at best and anti-Christian and pro-socialism at worst.
Parents really have their work cut out for them today. Christian kids need a solid foundation of truth and a biblical worldview. Unless things change, things will only grow worse for our nation and the Church in America.
Dr. Mark Eckel of Ratio Christi Ministries joins Mike and David for a discussion on how to reach people with truth from Scripture when many are seeking answers in all the wrong places.Read More

Recently, we’ve received more listener questions on the 500 year old topic of Calvinism vs. Arminianism. Is this debate necessary and productive? Or is it becoming a source for self-righteous condemnation and hatred of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ? Is it important that we understand election, predestination and who is called before we can accept the gift God has given us through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ?
Also mentioned: why not taxpayer-funding for adoption rather than abortion? Mark of the Beast, word of faith theology, when does worship become entertainment, biblical marriage, and the persecuted church.Read More
Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins Mike and Crash this morning to look at some beliefs of Christians that are just not found in the Word of God and the importance of making sure our zeal is well grounded in truth and supported by the Bible. Jay also discusses the amazing complexity of the human body, pointing to the truth that we were fearfully and wonderfully made by God and not a random act of nature.Read More
Today we discuss the strong delusion taking place in full sight across America; moral relativism, young people favoring socialism, vaccines, and the church’s response to COVID craziness, social justice, and Black Lives Matter.Read More
We discuss the many different reactions Christians have to the Chinese coronavirus and government ordinances, restrictions. We also address how the lack of true American history being taught to kids today had led to this cultural moment with so many young people thinking the country is and was always a bad one.
Plus, new surveys saying a majority of Americans no longer see human life as ‘Sacred’ but see humanity as ‘Basically Good.’ And new Barna research shows 87% of Christians believe the USA has been blessed by God. Hmm.Read More
Sergeant Mike McGrew shares an amazing story of how God literally saved his life as he navigated the perils of police work, along with his own personal trials which include the death of one child and the drug addiction of another child, his own struggles with alcohol, surviving violent attacks on the job, and a life-threatening battle with cancer.Read More
