Remembering our Nation’s Foundational Principles

As we come off our celebration of America’s Independence, it is important we recognize that the words and ideals of our founding fathers have been twisted by radical progressives to advance their agenda that America is evil so their globalist agenda can be forwarded. In reality, several Presidents–Democrat and Republican alike–have historically noted the importance of the Bible and Christian values to our founders in establishing our nation.

No doubt, and sadly, our founders had to compromise on critical moral issues such as slavery in order to get the Republic established, but those wrongs were eventually corrected. Today we share what some of our Presidents have stated about the Christian conviction of our nation’s founders. And we explore why many America-bashing leftists and progressives paint a different picture of the founders of our nation.

In our first segment we check in with Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom, to discuss the impact of Hollywood, entertainment and social media on our children.

We Love America, But We Have Deep Concerns

In our final segment today I respond to an email from a listener accusing us of being judgmental and hypocritical in our assessment of secular media and our claim that Jesus will judge unrepentant sinners one day.  Our third segment should give great insight into how progressives think these days and how we respond with truth.

Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss America’s past, present and future as we prepare to celebrate our nation’s independence day.  The nation we love and are still blessed to live in has some serious problems that need to be addressed if we are to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave.  And the most serious of all is turning our backs on God and His perfect law and teachings. We discuss a sermon Randy gave on what he would like to say to the USA.

Watching the Watchers and Q & A

The media is supposed to hold government accountable as well as inform and look out for all Americans, regardless of political affiliation. Some journalists today might consider themselves watchman over our government, but the truth is few actually do their jobs when a Democrat is in the White House as we witnessed during the Obama administration. Well, since Donald Trump was elected president, they’re back from with a vengeance!

We do not not defend everything the president has done or said, but what happens when the same media that is supposed to hold government to a high standard lacks the integrity, morals, and principles they are calling for? David Fiorazo exposes more media hypocrisy in our Media Watch Segment today.

We also answer your questions from this week. Some of the subjects we address include Oneness Theology, Lordship Salvation, Homosexual Christians, and The Willow Creek Leadership Summit.

Assaults on Religious Liberty and Free Speech

Europe and the Middle East have been ravaged by Islamic terrorism with attacks coming on almost a daily basis. All the while citizens exclaim, “What can the government do about it?” In Europe, under pressure from governments, social media organizations like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter are sponsoring a forum to “purge terrorists from their pages, videos and posts.” On the surface this might seem like a viable plan, but perhaps first we should learn what their definition of “terrorist” is, because some consider so-called hate speech to be terrorism. Those same people consider the teachings of God’s Word as hate speech.

Joining us this morning to discuss the attack on religious liberty and freedom of speech is Brad Dacus of Pacific Justice Institute, an organization dedicated to protecting religious liberties for Christians.

Dangerous Rhetoric… Dangerous Events

The tragic shooting this week in Virginia of Republican Congressmen and staffers is a sad effect of the careless, hateful rhetoric that spews out of Washington politicians and our divided nation as a whole over the past two decades. Mentally unstable people get caught up in the media sensationalism and decide that violence is the logical answer. Is our nation on the brink of a social meltdown and political anarchy fueled by careless politicians and a reckless media? I think you know the answer. We will cover this story and others in our Media watch segment this morning. We also answer your questions from this week’s shows.

A Warning Shot to Christians in Government

Last week, Senator Bernie Sanders, who could have been elected President, said some very disturbing things when questioning the President’s nominee for Deputy Director of Management and Budget. Sanders did not question Russel Vought’s financial or management qualifications when grilling him; he questioned if he should be allowed to work in the government because of Vought’s Christian beliefs. Apparently, it all stemmed from a personal statement Vought made on his personal facebook page: “Muslims do not simply have a deficient theology. They do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ, His Son, and they stand condemned.”

According to God’s Word, Vought is correct and that seemed to drive Sanders crazy. Also today in our Rightly Handling the Word segment we discuss “Seed Faith Offering” statements that television preachers often use to get people to give to their organizations. Just what does God actually promise when we give generously, compared to what is promised by these televangelists?

Assessing President Trump’s Efforts in the Middle East

This morning we look at President Trump’s visit to the Middle East to try to rally Muslim nations against ISIS and terrorism, along with his ambitious hopes to bring peace to Israel and its enemies. We will look at his efforts from biblical and pragmatic viewpoints, and discuss some writings by Christian author, Bill Koenig, a White House corespondent. In the first segment we check in with Dr. Cal Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation to look at the radical environmental movement and its real agenda.

The Attack on Religious Liberty

The Constitution of the United States guarantees every citizen the right to worship as they believe and to freely express their religious views privately as well as publicly. But Jesus warned us that the day would come when true Christian believers would be marginalized, hated and even persecuted for their faith in Him. Historically we have believed “that could never happen in America,” but we are seeing the early signs that indeed it is starting to happen.

Are we approaching the day when the right of true, practicing Christians to share their faith and worship publicly in our nation will become a distant memory? What can we do to assure our constitutional rights to privately and publicly express and share our Christian convictions? Or should we accept what many feel is inevitable: that Christian liberties will be stripped in favor of political correctness and secular humanism?

Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute joins us to discuss trends and recent legal battles over the religious freedom of Christians.

National Security, Religious Freedom, and Biased Media

With terrorism on the rise, many Americans are naturally concerned with safety, wanting the federal government to inform us about hateful ideologies and protect us from terrorist organizations like ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood. But safety usually comes with a potentially severe price: Freedom. It is a difficult balance to maintain maximum safety without government intrusion into privacy, freedom of speech, or other liberties our Constitution guarantees us as citizens.

Also, there is a potentially dangerous trend within our National Security Agencies to become political as we are witnessing holdover members of the Obama Administration leaking damaging innuendo or facts about the Trump Administration to the press. Few would argue the media doesn’t want to undermine the President’s agenda and see him fail.

Ryan Mauro is a national security expert withe The Clarion Project and a Shillman Fellow. He joins us to discuss President Trump’s trip to the Middle East this weekend, as well as the growth of terrorism and what can be legally done about it.

Next, David Fiorazo presents another Media Watch segment concerning what he calls hypocritical, irresponsible, malignant media bias, and we discuss the increasing discrimination against Christians and conservatives in America.

“You Might be a Racist if…”

This morning we cover several interesting news stories including a new college movement that says demanding students or workers show up on time might be racist oriented. We also discuss the IRS investigation into Benny Hinn and look at several of Hinn’s outlandish teachings and “prophecies” over the past couple decades.

In our first segment Robert Meyer of Renew America joins us to discuss the condition of religious freedom for Christians in America and dissects President Trump’s announcement attacking The Johnson Amendment, aimed at restricting political commentary from the pulpit.

Prayer, Media Watch, & Religious Freedom

Today is The National Day of Prayer. Thousands will be gathered around America feeling called to pray for our nation. But just how should we pray for America–a nation that is continuing down the politically correct path to destruction? Even many professing believers deny its Judeo-Christian principles by turning its back on the truth of God and His Word.

Has America and its leaders become a stubborn, stiff-necked people unwilling to repent and return to God and His ways? Is there still hope? What about religious freedom and legislation that discriminates against Christians when laws were passed to give certain groups special, not equal, rights? What should we be praying for today and from this point on?

Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action joins us to day to discuss the importance of prayer and action to address the growing apostasy in our nation.

Discernment or Self-Destruction?

This morning on Stand Up For the Truth we read your comments and answer your questions from this week.  One central theme is discernment issues within Christianity.  Are we using proper biblical discernment or engaging in prideful witch hunts, looking to discredit others who we disagree with?  Also, several have chimed in regarding young people seeking “community” outside the confines of church. We discuss these and other topics of interest today.

First up, David covers our weekly Media watch segment, answering this question:  Why does secular media dedicate so much time to covering issues Americans say they don’t care about?

Controversial Issues in the Christian Church

Families and societies operate best when there are fixed standards of morality to guide our actions. In our nation, we were established upon the rule of law, supposedly giving us clear instruction what is acceptable or unacceptable behavior. As Christians we are guided by God’s Word which sets the ultimate standard for morality and acceptable behavior for us. But what happens when “normal” becomes subjective to personal feelings?

In the first segment today, we check in with Doug Wakefield of Best Minds, Inc. to keep an eye on world wide economic trends that point to globalism through a coming shake up in the world economy.

Is This the Future of America’s Churches?

Today we cover an intriguing article from Denver, Colorado about an “atheist church of free thinkers.” What is very interesting about the article is the words they use to describe their “community” are the same words that appeal to many young Christians these days: Free-thinking, questioning, skeptical, and conversational.

Is this the model for the future of church for our younger people? We discuss this with Dave Wager of Silver Birch ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute. Dave has worked with youth for 35 years.

The One Who Can Fix Our Problems in Public Education

In our final segment today we offer a solution to the Public Education mess we see as discussed from the crisis at Washington Middle School in Green Bay. The solution is simple, but not easy. It will require qualities sadly lacking these days: courage and conviction.

First up, we are joined by Brad Dacus of The Pacific Justice Institute to discuss legal cases threatening the religious freedom and conviction of Christians in our nation. Even his organization has been labeled a ‘hate’ group’ by the radical Southern Poverty Law Center. Has the Progressive/Marxist juggernaut grown so strong that it is inevitable? If not, what can we do to fight it and restore biblical principles in our nation?
