A Difficult Conundrum for Biblical Christians

Christians are in the world but not to be of the world.  We are commanded to love all people, even those who are enemies of God.  But we are also called to obey God and not man when those are in contradiction. Congress is preparing to pass national anti-discrimination laws mandating that transgenders be given civil rights protections in hiring and services acquired from businesses. This morning, we look at a new survey that shows a majority of professing Christians agree with this proposal.

In our first segment, we look at the most popular questions college students have about God, life and this world with Jane Pantig of Ratio Christi Ministries. 

How do we answer their important questions in a way that encourages them to reason and think, hopefully pointing them to the gospel and faith in Jesus Christ?

New Leadership Is On The Way

Some Christians are concerned about the new leadership poised to take power in Washington, D.C. as a result of this week’s elections. There is legitimate concern that this new leadership will be unfriendly toward Christians and the biblical values we are called to live by each day. The news media continues to debate if this was a “blue wave” or simply a temporary correction to the balance of power, but one thing we know for sure: There is a powerful “wave” ascending to leadership in our nation—today’s college students are the future leaders of our nation and what they are learning about God and Christianity does not bode well for our nation. But some people called by God are interceding and influencing tomorrow’s leaders in a positive way.

Jane Pantig is Co-Chapter Director at the University of California System for Ratio Christi Ministries. Jane joins us this morning to share some of the crucial questions today’s students are asking and the importance of giving them truthful, biblical answers to their questions.

Jan Markell: An Upside Down World – Signs of the Times

“God doesn’t shake the entire globe very often. He did during the time of Noah and at the Tower of Babel. There was a terrible plague in the 1300s and a pandemic in 1918. Two world wars took a stunning toll. But now an unseen enemy—a virus, no less—has created fear-driven chaos, and some unknown factors are causing people to embrace a worst-case outlook for the world. At this time, we don’t know how this plays out. It certainly has apocalyptic implications.” – Jan Markell, today’s guest

Steven Bancarz: New Age Influence in Christian Churches

All across North America, Christian churches have unknowingly encouraged occult beliefs and practices far removed from what the Bible teaches. This unfortunate reality is intrinsically linked to the popularity increase of New Age spirituality in the twenty-first century, and we’ve been so influenced by its integration into our society that we have become blind to recognizing, and preventing, the effects of this mainstream, pop-culture heresy, even within the walls of God’s house.

Today’s guest is former New Ager, Steven Bancarz, founder of the apologetics website, Reasons for Jesus, and co-author of the best-selling book The Second Coming of the New Age.

Carl Teichrib: So Many Gods, so Much Deception

So many gods, so little time. There are well over 1.5 million Wiccans (over 3 million pagans, total) in the U.S. and these numbers are growing. Some are deceivers while many others are simply deceived, just looking for some kind of spirituality to practice. The increase of young people identifying themselves as neo-pagans and Wiccans is due in part to the media’s glorification of the supernatural, occult themes in Hollywood, and disillusionment with organized religion.

From national monuments to pagan deities and statues across North America, ancient gods and goddesses are all around us. Deception, idolatry, the occult, earth worship, satanism, and witchcraft have become common and to a great degree, accepted in our society. The question we should, however, ask is to what extent has it seeped into our churches?
