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.

Opposing Perspectives on Iran, Government

While most of the international intrigue has been over North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear capabilities to attack America, something very interesting is happening in Iran. The radical Muslim nation under the grips of the powerful Ayatollahs has imprisoned and killed Christians, homosexuals and anyone opposing them. But now the people of Iran are rising up in opposition and this isn’t the first time. Under President Obama the U.S. said nothing against the brutal regime in Iran because the president wanted his precious “nuclear treaty” with Iran – a treaty that has proven to be another example of naive thinking and failed foreign policy.

But now President Trump is supporting the uprising to overthrow a brutal Islamic regime and the liberal press is blasting him. We look at a couple of articles and perspectives on this simmering world-stage issue.

In our first segment we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to look at the difference between state and federal government process, as well as pending legislation that would address “non-discrimination” ordinances being passed in Wisconsin that threaten religious conscience and liberty.

How SCOTUS Works, & the Significance of Standing With Israel

Over the past several decades, most presidential candidates declared they believe Jerusalem is the true capital of Israel and that they would move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem if elected. History has proven this to be political rhetoric to capture more votes as no past president has followed through on the promise – Until now. Yesterday, President Trump kept his campaign promise–a rarity for candidates these days–and proclaimed the U.S. recognizes Jerusalem as Israel’s capital city and would begin plans to move our embassy there. Whatever you think of President, Trump it is certainly refreshing to see a candidate actually follow through on a campaign promise.

Other than Israel Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, world leaders are reacting with anger, claiming this will set the “peace process” back. This is the same ‘peace process” that has produced zero results for many decades. This morning we will discuss the potential effects of this courageous move by a controversial president.

In our first segment, we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council and hear some fascinating insights on how the Supreme Court works, as well as her thoughts on the opening arguments in the Jack Phillips’ religious freedom case. Is religious freedom hanging in the balance and could it come down to one man’s vote?

Is a True Believer’s Salvation Eternally Secure?

A couple weeks ago we interviewed Pastor Mike Abendroth on the doctrine of eternal security of the true believer through faith in Jesus Christ.  Some listeners have written claiming our belief is wrong and that the belief in the eternal security of the believer is wrong and dangerous. So today Pastor Abendroth joins us again to address those concerns on this very important doctrine.

We will also talk with Mike about sincere questions unbelievers have about God and The Bible and how the Church has a responsibility to answer their sincere questions honestly, because if we cannot they will find the wrong answers in the world.

Keeping an Eye on Israel, Prophecy

As our nation continues to be distracted by media spin, alleged Russian collusion, politics, social issues, holidays, and the daily drama of the Stock Market, many are ignoring events in Israel and the Middle East that may be pointing to the continuing fulfillment of biblical prophecy. While it is currently in rebellion against God because of rejecting Jesus as Messiah, Israel is nonetheless very important to God and His final plans for this world are centered on Israel…and a lot is going on there that most are ignoring.

Pastor and bestselling author, Carl Gallups, a student and teacher of biblical prophecy, joins us to share details on interesting news many are ignoring about Israel.

In our final segment, you’ll never guess who Democrats and Humanists in Massachusetts are blaming for all the world’s problems from racism to climate change. We look at the continuing campaign to silence the Christian worldview in the public venue.

Questions, Comments, and Biblical Answers

Questions and comments from listeners today include:

Is it wrong that I don’t tithe to my church but instead support Christians organizations and ministries that are spreading the gospel and equipping believers? My pastor said this is wrong, but my church is not making disciples.
Are Word Faith or prosperity preachers crooks for making promises that God will bless people financially if they give money to them?
As believers, can we sanctify ourselves?
I am a former Muslim and appreciate the grace you exhibit in reminding people not all Muslims are terrorists in waiting.
Listening from Alberta Canada, we attend a large church that is biblical and has good leadership. But groups are growing within our church following a lot of Bethel propaganda believing everyone should speak in tongues and prophesy. Some claim those who do not aren’t filled with the Spirit. What can I say to my friends about this?
Regarding the Mark of the Beast, I have friends who claim that when a person allows an electric device to be installed, even a pacemaker or does electronic banking, it’s wrong. Aren’t they overreacting?
Is Hebrews 6 referring to those who were not saved to begin with or those who lost their salvation?
Israel is a free republic like America, but aren’t the two nations spiritually “un-Christian” considering only a small remnant are true, converted believers in Jesus Christ?
Love the show on creation and evolution with Jay Seegert (December 5). Too many debates about creation focus on science rather than Scripture and end up veering away from the fact of a literal six-day creation and the age of the earth being thousands of years old, not millions.

Feelings and Opinions Vs Beliefs and Truth

Feelings, opinions, beliefs and truth are parts of the thought process that leads to our ultimate actions and behaviors. But the order in which they form our complex thought and subsequent action makes all the difference in the world. If we get them in the wrong order we can start down a slippery slope where our beliefs and actions contradict what God says in His Word, and nothing good will come out of that. But if we align them correctly according to the teachings of the Bible, we can lead a life of joy, victory in Christ, and the peace of God.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss how to correctly line up these elements comprising our human thought process, and the dangers of incorrectly prioritizing them.

Did God Use Evolution as His Process of Creation?

The number of Christians who trust the authority of the Bible and are truly taking a stand for what they believe is rapidly decreasing. Many churches that were once stalwarts for the faith have slowly compromised, moving into obscurity, becoming either irrelevant, or in some cases actually hostile to the Bible. This doesn’t happen overnight, but rather through deception and sometimes subtle teachings that gradually erode their views on the authority and sufficiency of Scripture.

One of these slippery slopes is related to the origins account found in the book of Genesis. There’s a view that has been around for quite a long time, but has recently made a resurgence within evangelical circles. This is the idea that perhaps God didn’t actually do things as literally and simply stated in Genesis 1-2, but used more of a “natural” vs “supernatural” process (tenets of Darwinian evolution). Sadly, this is becoming increasingly popular not only in churches, but also in Christian seminaries, colleges and universities.

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins the program to discuss some unbiblical ideas being considered in some Christian circles.
