Sexuality as a Gift From God

Sexual intimacy between a man and his wife are a great gift from God. This relationship is a human representation of the deep intimacy Jesus wants with His bride, the church.  When a man and his wife are sexually intimate there is a deep physical, emotional and spiritual bonding that God blesses.

But as Satan often does, he takes something beautiful from God and twists it to deceive people. Today, rampant sexuality has led to destruction and disaster: abortion, broken marriages, divorce, and sexual brokenness and even gender confusion.

Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins Mike and David to discuss the beauty of biblical sexuality and the snare of sexual sin that has led to dramatic moral decline in our nation.

Why Am I So Passionate About Being A Watchman?

I received a phone call earlier this week from a listener asking me if I could take a few minutes and give the “big picture” of what I am seeing in our nation and the warning message I am trying to deliver.  So here goes:

America, founded on Judeo-Christian law and principles, has abandoned that foundation over the past 50 years.  God has been kicked out of our schools and government; we have murdered more than 60 million babies in the womb; we have redefined marriage; and we have told God that He is flawed in how He created us—that just because he created us male or female that he had no right to do that since we should be able to choose ourselves the gender we prefer.

America has gone from a Christian nation to an “Anti-Christ nation”.  And while we should use our freedom of speech and religious expression, along with our voting power, to try to reverse the slide of this once-great nation, we must accept the inevitability of what the Bible forecasts:  That one day soon every nation will turn on Israel and against God in defiance.  There is no “USA” exclusion in the Word of God…

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.

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.

Time for the Church to Take a Strong Stand – on the Basics

Mike and David look at a joint statement from Evangelical and Catholic leaders condemning New York’s expanded abortion law. But is making a strong statement enough if it is not backed up by righteous action? Instead of merely condemning the actions of New York legislators, should churches start to hold church members accountable if they approve of abortion or continue to support political candidates that endorse the slaughter of innocent children in the womb? Should church discipline be used to make a strong statement to church members about this crucial biblical issue?

In our first two segments, we look at sexuality, gender and marriage according to God’s Word. No surprise that polls show a majority of people in our nation who call themselves Christians approve of homosexual marriage, and an increasing number actually believe that a person’s gender could be “fluid,” insinuating that perhaps God made mistakes – if He in fact did create us. Pastor Randy White joins us to bring us back to the fundamentals of God’s Word regarding sexuality, gender, marriage and family.

Comments, Questions & Answers

Mike and David read your questions and comments, but open with a commentary on the disgusting actions of the State of New York that will kill more babies and American Christianity’s collective cowardice in standing up for the lives of unborn children.

When “The State” thumbs its nose at God and proudly passes a law that will murder more children created in the image of God, and American Christianity Churches continue in their ringing silence and failure to stand up for those children, is the “church” becoming part of the problem rather than the solution?

Is America Experiencing its Romans 1 Time?

In Romans chapter one, Paul explains that since men reject the truth of God, He turns them over to a reprobate mind to think and do evil in astounding ways. Their rejection and hatred of God fuels them to believe and do unthinkable evil.

Sixty million murdered children in mother’s wombs in the U.S.; homosexual marriage legalized; and gender dysphoria accepted as “normal” with the government paying for people to try to change their gender (something medical science says is quite impossible), all point to a collective depravity in a nation established under God’s Laws and moral principles. And in the meantime, American Christianity gladly allows secular culture to infiltrate and influence her to the point that churches and their members look more like the world than a unique, holy people.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins us to talk about these issues and discuss globalism, Israel, the political divide in the U.S., and a report that President Trump will be unveiling a peace plan for the Middle East that seems to have Israeli officials very nervous.

A Redefining of Christianity in America

This morning, Mike and David continue discussing how that which calls itself “Christianity” in America is becoming anything but biblical Christianity more and more. We look at a Lip Sync event at Luther Seminary in Minnesota to show just how far off the rails one denomination has fallen. We also look at a recent statement by the National Evangelical Association supporting the LGBTQ movement in its special rights under the guise of “equality.”

In our first segment, we talk with Art Ally of The Timothy Plan to discuss biblical generosity and how the money Christians invest in corporations and stocks is being used to either glorify God or support those who oppose biblical Christian values.

Countering Culture & Defining ‘Born-Again’ Christian

Words are meaningless without clear definitions. When we misrepresent the meanings and definitions of important words God uses in Scripture, all sorts of problems result including professing Christians being either ignorant or deceived.

This morning Mike and David look at eye-opening Barna Research from 2017 that shows the deeply-held beliefs of those who profess to be born-again Christians. We will compare what people believe to what the Bible teaches us about God and the Christian worldview. The results range from interesting to staggering.

In our first segment we check in with Tina Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, to look the ways secular culture, Hollywood, and television are poisoning and destroying the morality of our children.

The Fight for Religious Freedom has Just Begun

If you are naive enough to think that simply because the Supreme Court gave a narrow victory to cake baker Jack Phillips earlier this year means our religious freedoms are secure – you’re living in a fantasy world. Do not underestimate the intolerance and vile hatred of the radical left as well as the LGBTQ movement toward God and Christianity.

The ink was barely wet on the Supreme Court decision favoring Philips, and now he is back in court accused of a similar “crime” in the minds of the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. This time, a man claiming to be a woman filed a lawsuit against the Christian baker. The Colorado Commission will this time claim they are sensitive to Phillips’ religious beliefs, but that this type of “discrimination” just cannot be tolerated. Mike and David will look at the complaint in detail to help you understand how Christians are being set up for badgering and intimidation, all in the hopes of shutting us up.

In our first segment, Mike and David discuss church security with retired Police Office, Joel Benson, who has a passion to equip churches to protect their members when they assemble to worship God.
