Why Christianity is Failing in America

It’s important we look at a recent study that discusses the many ways professing Christianity is not only failing our nation, but many who attend church services every week. As the professing church continues to conform and compromise with the world Jesus told us we are to hate, a growing number of churches sacrifice the pursuit of holiness for entertainment and secular growth programs.

Mike and David touch on this dangerous path a growing number of churches and denominations are currently on – leading people away from God rather than drawing them nearer to Him and equipping the saints for ministry. Just as disappointing, we will address recent comments from Pope Francis’ January 1 “Mary Mother of God” Mass, including “we can do no better than to put our hands in hers and to acknowledge her as our life.”

In our first segment, Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council shares a tragic decision by the State of Wisconsin to provide “gender reassignment” coverage for people under state Medicaid.

Social Media Big Guns Silencing Christians

Satan is the perfect liar. He has mastered his art of deception over thousands of years and he can present something to us that looks “good” when in reality it is his instrument for enslaving us once man abuses it. In the final segments today, Mike and David look at how the Internet, presented in the 1990s as man’s gateway to knowledge and communication, is slowly becoming a system of intimidation against anyone who dares to live by or proclaim Christians values. Are we willingly walking into slavery through our obsession with social media?

In the first segment, Mike and David look at how radical leftists twist information and opinions to advance their godless agenda. Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council joins us to discuss how the radical left is now blaming Christians for the crisis in adoption, when, in reality, we are a solution to the crisis.

We The People Elect Our Leaders

The Apostle Paul makes it clear that we are to honor and obey governmental authorities in our lives, as long as their orders do not contradict what the Bible teaches. In America we are blessed because we get to choose our leaders, the “Caesars” we are to submit to. Tomorrow (Tuesday) Americans will elect our government leaders for the next two years, and their motives for voting will be worldly. But as Christians, we are held to a higher standard. We should be electing leaders whose values and beliefs most align with God’s Word on moral and spiritual issues like abortion, marriage, family, freedom, sexuality and gender.

Our religious freedoms to openly profess and share our convictions continue to be on the line depending the outcome of this election. Radical Progressives have made it clear that Christians are to be seen but not heard. In our final segments we look at news stories that show just how intense the pressure is becoming on Christians to withdraw from the public arena. But first we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss the choices Christians face in this election.

Voting in Wisconsin; Welcoming Baal to Washington D.C.

There is always a certain arrogance to our sin. And the greater the pride or arrogance, the greater the sin. America, founded on Judeo-Christian principles and values, is rapidly turning away from God in her arrogance, symbolized best by our very own government and the nation’s capitol in Washington D.C.

America’s defiance of God has now reached a new level as a replica of the Arch of Baal has taken up residence on the National Mall of Washington D.C.—and lawmakers republican and Democrat alike are giddy about it. We’ll cover the story in our second segment today. In segment three, we’ll continue our look at the Barna Research study from 2017 that reveals exactly what professed born-again believers actually believe about God and the Bible.

In our first segment we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action and Council. There is so much to talk about including the upcoming state and national elections and how we can cut through the noise of all the TV ads, mailings, and social media nonsense.

Denying God’s Word & Science to Promote Chaos

One definition of insanity you sometimes hear is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. But another definition could be “a refusal to accept reality.” No matter what facts or truth is presented, the person refuses to accept them and continues to insist he is right even despite irrefutable evidence. This seems to define radical liberalism in our nation.

The evidence supporting life is clear in God’s Word and true science with each passing year proves life begins much earlier than previously thought. And on the issue of “gender dysphoria,” science continues to confirm the truth given to us in God’s Word: gender is assigned at conception and there is nothing man can do to change that.

No amount of truth seems sufficient for far left liberals bent on enforcing their agenda of godlessness. Today we look at a few more stories about radical views and arguments disconnected from truth and reality. We check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council.

Freedom: It Can Be Taken or Surrendered

We value our freedoms as American citizens, especially the freedom of speech and religious expression. Knowing that the Bible is the basis of our nation’s laws and morality, we also recognize without them we are no better than Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

In our first segment today, we talk with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as well as new studies about the opioid crisis and significantly lower birth rates in Wisconsin.

We live in times where some would like to take our freedoms from us. Globalists and Marxists look for every opportunity to make government god and enslave us to their standards of [im]morality. But we can also be easily deceived into voluntarily giving up our freedoms in the name of “progress.” We also discuss an article from the website “Technocracy” about A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and how it is shaping the future of medical research and treatment. The potential ramifications are chilling. Finally, Canada finds more ways to discriminate against Christians and clamp down on religious freedom.

A Church of Compromise, Not Courage

This morning, Mike and David cover a couple of stories pointing to continuing compromise of the Gospel and word of God in a growing number of churches under the guise of “love.” We look at a United Methodist Church hosting Muslims for a Ramadan Dinner for Muslims, and a gathering of pastors and church leaders trying to figure out how homosexuality fits into biblical Christianity.

In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to see what is happening on the pro-life and pro-family front in Madison and around the state. We look at new research from Barna that discusses the views of Americans concerning the direction of our nation including 77% of people surveyed who say we are heading in the wrong direction morally and culturally.

Don’t You Dare Bring God into This!

As secular culture turns more hostile toward God and His Word every day, secular humanists are doing all they can to make certain God’s perfect truth is no longer a part of helping people trapped in sin. Instead, the left is encouraging people to not only agree with them, but to insist that others accept their sin as righteous. Isaiah 5:20 warns us about calling evil good.

The city of Milwaukee recently passed an ordinance that bans so-called “conversion therapy” for minors struggling with homosexuality or gender issues, but many pastors in the community are uniting to fight the proposed ordinance. We also discuss a California Supreme Court decision that actually reverses a CA law that approved assisted suicide, and the Supreme Court decision regarding sports betting (gambling) leaving it up to each state whether or not to legalize betting on sports.

Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action is in studio today to discuss these issues along with why so many people are ignorant or uninformed about the Christian faith and what the Bible actually teaches.

Christian Alternatives to Public Education

It is pretty clear what Christian parents can expect if they send their children to government-run schools. Whatever basic Christian worldview their children have will be challenged and probably mocked, that is, if other kids find out they’re Christians. There’s also a very good chance that by the time they head off to college their children will want nothing to do with the Christian faith.

There are alternatives. Why send your children to reputable Christian schools or take a step of faith and homeschool? But many parents are intimidated by what they perceive to be a tremendous commitment of time or money needed for homeschooling their children.

We discuss a new Christian Home School Organization to offer assistance to parents who choose to home school their children. We talk with Andrew Pudewa, director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing, who is very involved in the advancement of quality homeschooling. He will be speaking at the Wisconsin Homeschool conference April 20-21 in Milwaukee.

In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss the recent election of a liberal Wisconsin Supreme Court justice. We also address disturbing trends we see in government, as well as a dangerous ordinance in Milwaukee that will prevent Christian churches and counselors from helping young people who are confused about their sexuality or gender identification.

The United States of Insanity

The growth rate of depravity, immorality, and non-Christian spirituality in our nation is reaching alarming levels. In Romans Chapter 1, Paul says that because men rejected the truth of God, He turned them over to a debased mind to think and do unspeakable evil.

The United States of America, established by our founding fathers on Judeo-Christian, biblical principles, is on a steady march toward complete moral and spiritual destruction. How do we, as committed disciples of Jesus Christ who love God’s word and what our nation once stood for, fight the good fight and continue to point people to the only hope: the gospel of Jesus Christ?

This morning, we cover more shocking news and trends including the State of Delaware poised to allow 5 year-old children to decide their gender and race without their parent’s consent. And, a substitute teacher in Wisconsin is under fire from the Freedom From Religion Foundation for sharing the gospel with students.

We kick off today’s program with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action.

Biblical Counseling

Christians are not immune to problems, confusion and sometimes even feeling somewhat depressed.  The world offers several options including Psychology and medication, but as John Rosemond discussed yesterday these can sometimes lead to more problems.  The Word of God is absolute, eternal truth, sufficient for all things. 

In our second half hour today, we interview Pastor Rob Green from Faith Church in Lafayette, Indiana and discuss a biblical counseling course being offered in our area to help Christians minister to one another with wisdom when life becomes challenging.

In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss president Trump’s State of the Union speech, the reaction of the Left, the Senate failing to pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and an important election coming up this month in WI as well as obstacles to passing strong pro-life legislation in Wisconsin.

An Unclear Battle Cry from Church Leadership

Make no mistake: as Christians we are at war with this world. No, we do not use the world’s weapons or tactics, but Paul says in 2 Corinthians 10 that we have divine (spiritual) weapons able to to destroy arguments and lofty opinions of this world that are opposed to God and truth.

But many are wondering why a growing number of church leaders are not calling and equipping believers to fight this crucial spiritual battle for the eternal souls of our friends and neighbors. Where are the leaders rallying, challenging, and equipping Christians for this battle? We seem intent on looking more and more like the world we are supposed to win to Christ.

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to talk about the crucial need for church and family leadership in these days of growing confusion and evil.

American Christianity’s Slide Into Apostasy

This morning, Crash Connell interviews Mike about his latest powerful and provocative book challenging the direction of a growing number of churches in our nation. Mike discusses the demarcation forming between Biblical Christian Churches and “American Christianity” churches and how a growing number of churches and denominations are transforming churches toward secular culture, leading many into a false sense of eternal security.

You can pre-order Mike’s new book at biblicalanswerguy.com or at Amazon. It is a powerful, provocative book that will lead you to an honest self-assessment of your life as a professing believer and discover if the church you belong to is conforming to the world or the Word of God.

Deeper Faith, Honest Questions, Sharing the Gospel

Two fantastic guests on the program means #doubletruththursday. Is that a thing? Anyway…

Today, Mike and David welcome first-time guest, evangelist, Willie Herath of Ratio Christi in southern California and we discuss apologetics, deeper questions in the faith, and how to effectively respond to nonbelievers. How important is it for us to be ready to respond when people have questions or have objections to Christianity. We often find out that they really did not know much about the evidence for the Christian faith and the Bible.

We also talk with radio host, Mike Zander, from Utah’s Key Radio where he reaches out to Mormons in Utah with the gospel. He’s in town today and in-studio with Mike LeMay and David Fiorazo.

Are We Turning Toward or Away From God?

Mike and David look at a challenging article by Shane Idelman admonishing the Church to start living and acting like the Church instead of caving to the pressure and beliefs of secular society. And — breaking news — in case you haven’t heard: 

The church is not a building or a denomination… You and I as believers are the Church!

The sad reality is that Jesus warned that many who think they are saved and going to heaven are instead headed to eternal hell. Paul tells us to continually test ourselves to prove that we are truly in the faith and have not fooled ourselves. The committed follower of Jesus Christ is willing to do this on a continual basis; the professing Christian who has fooled themselves never thinks twice about it. They have been lulled into a false sense of eternal security by the father of lies and a professing “church” that is afraid to offend people by teaching about sin, repentance and the pursuit of holiness. Together today we will examine ourselves.

In our first segment, we talk Biblical apologetics with Aaron Marshall of Ratio Christi Ministries.

Time for the Church to Turn Back to God

The world is what it always will be: Full of people who love self and power and despise God and His Word. Christians are called to stand out as a peculiar people full of eternal hope in Jesus Christ and sharing that hope with lost people. But many fear that as the “church” has sought compromise and common ground with the world that she has lost her moral standing and actually is contributing to the growing evil in society instead of opposing it and offering a solution.

It’s time to turn back to God with repentant hearts, asking His forgiveness for squandering our calling as light in this dark world. But do we as professing Christians, along with those who lead us, have the humility and strength to get on our knees and repent before God for our failures? Or will we continue to look more and more like this world Jesus said we were to hate and that would hate us?

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer, travels the world teaching the Word of God and equipping Christians in persecuted nations to share the gospel in the midst of danger. Elijah joins us to look at the tepid condition of American Christianity and what we must do before it’s too late.
