Mueller, Trump, Christians, and Government

After two years of painstaking investigation and more than $25 million in taxpayer costs, Special Investigator Robert Mueller has concluded that, wait for it… President Trump did not collude with Russians to undermine our election system in 2016.  Talk about a dramatic “thud.” That should be the end to all this, but as we know, it is just going to continue as liberals will spare no taxpayer expense to undermine the president’s reputation and policies because they refuse to accept the truth.Are we seeing similar scenarios unfold within American Christianity?  Despite the Bible’s clear teachings on a variety of “social issues,” a growing number of Christians and churches refuse to accept the truth of God’s Word, choosing to compromise or believe what seems “right” to them.John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio joins Mike and David to discuss how opinions are being elevated over facts, in politics, in the media, and even when it comes to doctrine in some Christian churches. We also discuss Canada’s new “Risk Tracking Database” that some feel is a portal to government intervention into private lives and religious beliefs.  How long before this might come to America?

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?

A Quiet but Important Schism

There is a growing schism going on in within Christianity in America. It has been slow and subtle, but it is reaching the point where serious disciples of Jesus Christ are starting to take notice. This schism is centered around two important points:

Is the Christian walk about salvation, or holiness?
The Church’s relationship with the world.

Jesus warned that many who called Him “lord” would be condemned to eternal hell. Jesus and the Apostles warned that a great apostasy would infect the professing church in the days leading up to the Lord’s return. The Bible is clear that evil would grow exponentially in the final days and that Christians are to be a unique, holy people set aside for the glory of God.  This means the true Church of Jesus Christ should be increasingly contradictory to the teachings and behaviors of this wicked world. Instead, some churches are intent on looking more like the world.

Mike and Crash discuss this great schism and how Christians who are serious about pursuing holy living can determine if they are in a church that is increasingly unique, or one that is conforming to the world.

Supporting Deception by Our Silence

What people need now is more clarity and less confusion. Media, government and public education continue to push an agenda clouded in moral relativism, appealing to our desires and emotions but short on facts and reality. A political example would be the “New Green Deal” being advanced by Democratic presidential candidates. It sounds wonderful, but it glosses over the potential destruction it could bring to our economy and government infringement on our way of life.

What we all need is more clarity and less confusion. For Christians, we need church leaders who are clear about the Word and doctrines of God, leaders who stand strong against the deception of the enemy. But instead of clarity we seem to be getting neutrality, silence, or double speak from too many Christian leaders in America.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to discuss how and why the church must bring biblical clarity in the midst of confusion and equip believers to do ministry and be light in a dark world.

Tough Questions, Honest Answers

TODAY’S QUESTIONS

Should Christian church leaders hold their members accountable for unbiblical beliefs about creation, abortion, and same-sex “marriage”?
It is a sad day when our president stands up for the unborn, but so many preachers sit back and say nothing.
We have a responsibility to speak into another Christian’s life about biblical truth, but need to remember the Holy Spirit does the convicting, not us.
When turtle eggs are protected classes but babies are murdered in the womb, the end must be near.
Why don’t more Christians and Americans see the signs of the times and what is coming?
Persecution of Christians in the U.S. is imminent so why not start more home churches before it gets worse?
The National Association of Evangelicals has become a shill for social justice advocates.
Is the damage done to our nation by liberal ideology so destructive it is irreparable?

Is American Christianity Selling its Soul?

The abandonment of God’s Word and principles by Christian leaders in America continues to kick into increase with each passing year. Willow Creek’s Global Leadership Summit keeps bringing in speakers who defy God’s Word and Law, elevating them (secular progressives) as leaders that Christians should emulate. And now, the National Association of Evangelicals invites House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to speak to Christian College professors about the need for Evangelicals to support her fight against legal immigration policies and common sense.

This is the same Nancy Pelosi who at every opportunity supports legislation leading to more abortions, and a professing Catholic that is allowed to remain a Catholic in good standing in spite of her support of infanticide. Has the leadership of American Christianity completely sold the “church” out by compromising with and embracing an anti-biblical world view?

In our first segment, Mike and David talk about Christianity and athletics with our guest Kellen Cox of Fellowship of Christian Athletes. And in segments two and three, we tackle compromising denominations and church organizations.

A Unique and Peculiar People

In 1 Peter, Christians are called to be a holy people, set aside by God to be light in the darkness of this world. Our joy, attitude and behaviors should be so distinct from the ways of this world that people cannot help but notice that we are a unique, yes perhaps even a strange people.

But increasing studies show that there is little to distinguish many professing Christians from this world. From our attitudes to our behaviors we often seem anything but a unique and holy people. As the world grows more confusing and full of contradiction how can we as disciples of Jesus stand out all the more, pointing people to the eternal hope we have?

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch joins us to discuss the calling and challenge of living like a unique, holy people set aside for the glory of God.

After Easter: Jesus is Lord and the Gospel must Advance

We are fresh off of Easter weekend as many of us celebrated the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who shed His blood for our redemption.  He has freed us from the power of death and sin.  But with the simple yet profound message of the gospel, many Christians are still often confused about what this life should look like.  Did Jesus die so I could be healthy, wealthy, or comfortable in this life?  Are my physical sufferings or trials a sign of a lack of faith?  If the Bible says Jesus has taken our sorrows, then why do we still struggle with sadness and anxiety?Pastor Randy White joins us to look at the promises of Jesus Christ and how we apply them in correct context to our lives as His disciples.

Biblical Christianity in the Crosshairs

Americans have been historically blessed with a Constitution that guarantees us the right to religious beliefs and expression of those beliefs.  But slowly and surely those freedoms are under attack by secular humanists, public education, media and an out of control government.  At some point we will reach a breaking point in our nation where the Bible is viewed as hate speech and where every person who trusts in it as the Word of God will be seen as dangerous.Joining Mike and David today is Pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups.  Carl is a student of biblical prophecy and has studied the trends in Europe where Christianity has all but been eliminated from society.  Is America next – and what will be the consequences?

Trust, Confidence and Fear

The life of a disciple of Jesus Christ can be complex at times.  The Bible tells us we should trust God in all matters.  It says we can approach the throne of God in confidence with our petitions.  And yet it also says to fear God.  Trust, confidence and fear:  Not always easy to reconcile all three of those, yet this is the life we are called to as believers, particularly in a world that increasingly hates God and we who are disciples of Jesus.

Debunking Fallacies and Doubts about the Bible

Two facts are indisputable these days. First, the world is growing more evil. Darkness is increasing and God’s Word is being openly mocked and ridiculed. The second fact is too many believers, people who profess to be Christians, are ignorant of the truth of God’s Word. This leads to being ineffective in bearing fruit, living the Christian life and sharing the gospel of salvation with others.  This not only opens the door for confusion, chaos, or crisis in society – but also in the church.Our guest today, Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries, is tackling these problems head on, speaking, traveling, and by producing a video series called “deBUNKED,” answering key questions and refuting statements of skeptics. Carl is teaching Christians how to be effective in sharing the gospel and be better apologists for God.
