Our guest is Pastor Gary Gilley and his brand new study book is: Growing in Christ: Laying the Foundations of Christian Maturity.Read More
“Please, pastor, tell me what I want to hear. Make me feel good. No hard truths, no tough topics, just love and grace and encouragement. Don’t get too deep. I just want to enjoy my life and not to be challenged in my faith.” Sound extreme? People may not admit it, but we might be surprised how common this attitude is among churchgoers in America.
Today’s guest is evangelist, pastor/teacher, and former Muslim, Elijah Abraham.Read More

Government education in America kicked God, prayer, the Bible, and the Ten Commandments out of public schools over fifty years ago leaving a massive spiritual void. The doors were then flung open to Atheism, evolution, Humanism, witchcraft, Islam, Liberalism, sexual promiscuity, the LGBTQ agenda, and recently, Buddhism.
All the religions in the world cannot possibly be true, but in a secular culture influenced by postmodernism, people don’t want to hear there is only one way to God. But if you’re sincerely seeking truth, I suggest you take a look at Jesus before trying everything else. But many people prefer the coexist philosophy even though world religions contradict each other. The coexist slogan was actually created to oppose Christianity, and demand that we keep our beliefs to ourselves. Public schools follow this philosophy and insist we conform and tolerate all behavior as well as other religious claims.Read More
Many of us began preparing for Christmas and the five ‘F’s a month ago: festivities, family, food,...Read More
Some of today’s false teachers are under the umbrella of the emergent church which generally falls under the cult of Liberalism. This man-pleasing movement prefers to conform to this world and rejects the inerrancy of Scripture. They revel in the idea we are in a postmodern or post-Christian society, and often have a form of godliness but they deny the power of God and the Holy Spirit.
Charles Spurgeon once said,
“Discernment is not a matter of simply telling the difference between what is right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right.”
If you are a disciple, a follower of Christ and lover of the Truth, we must not only learn to discern the times in which we live but also warn others within the church who are headed for the proverbial cliff. Thankfully, Jude gave us a detailed letter and an example to follow as to how to recognize and deal with false teachers and apostates who come against the Lord Jesus Christ and the eternal truths of Scripture.
The book of Jude (“Judah” in Hebrew) was written just thirty-five years or so after Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven. Most interestingly, Jude was not only one of four half-brothers of the Lord Jesus, but also a brand new convert to the faith. He was not one of the Apostles that lived and walked with Jesus, yet Jude called for discernment and chose to write about false teachers and the need to defend true, apostolic, biblical doctrines.Read More
Fulfilled prophecy and God’s faithfulness throughout the Bible encourage us because we know we can trust that He will make good on the remaining prophecies regarding Israel, the return of Christ, and the end times. No nation or world leader comes into power apart from God causing or allowing it to happen. The book of Daniel states: “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. He reveals deep and hidden things (Daniel 2:20-22).”Read More
The Bible clearly warns us that as we approach the time of the Lord’s return that things would get worse and worse. Sin and evil will grow and the attacks on God, His Word and His Church would be magnified.
We had better understand this new reality.
Christianity was once the norm in our society; now it is becoming increasingly hated, scorned and attacked.
In our final segment this morning we look at public allegations against Pastor Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Church, alleging sexual misconduct and improprieties. Are the charges warranted or fabricated to further disgrace the Christian Church in America?
But first we talk with author and Christian Apologist John Stewart about his latest book “In Defense of the Gospels: The Case for Reliability”. How can we defend the authenticity and truth of the gospel against the growing chorus of attacks, reaching the lost with the hope of eternal life with God?Read More
Yesterday with Dave Wager, we talked about how the inconveniences and minor irritants of our lives can easily become “suffering” to us. Today, we look at Christians who are really suffering for the sake of Jesus Christ.
Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs joins us to discuss how Christians around the world are being imprisoned, beaten and even killed for their faith in Jesus Christ. And we look at the new movie Tortured for Christ along with the brand new book Wurmbrand: the stories of the lives of Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand.
Todd shares some amazing stories from a recent trip to Romania where he visited the actual prison Richard and Sebina Wurmbrand were held. Richard was there 14 years.
In our final segment, we share a perspective from conservative columnist Ben Shapiro about a vicious cycle: Politicians make promises, we elect them based on those promises, they break their promises, and we keep reelecting them – a sort of political insanity.Read More
Mormonism continues to grow because Mormons are very open and evangelistic about their religion. They tend to be very moral people and unless you really understand what Mormonism is and what they believe about God, you can easily mistake Mormonism for biblical Christianity. But underneath the facade that appears to be biblical Christianity is a religion that has the identity of God and Jesus Christ wrong, leading many to a false sense of eternal security.
Dr. Lynn Wilder knows all about the subtle deception of Mormonism as she was a practicing Mormon for years until the truth was revealed to her by God. Now she is dedicated to teaching people about Mormonism and pointing them to the true saving faith of biblical Christianity through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh.
Dr. Wilder joins us this morning to share her story and offer advice in how to engage Mormons with the truth of God’s Word… the Bible.Read More
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.Read More
Dr. Scott Lively has advocated and modeled the Biblical worldview as a writer, speaker, attorney, pastor, human rights consultant, and missionary for more than 30 years on five continents. We share his passion for Truth and the goal of restoring a Judeo-Christian consensus in America and advancing the Biblical worldview around the globe.Read More
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.Read More
Pastor, teacher, former law enforcement officer, and best-selling author, Carl Gallups joins us to discuss the recent news of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passing away last week. What are the constitutional responsibilities of the president to nominate judges to fill court vacancies? And what if he proceeds on this prior to the November election?Read More
