Is America Beyond Redemption?

Most of us would admit we are in desperate need of revival in the church as many have become lukewarm and Christians lack the cultural influence we used to have. America today barely resembles the America we who are older remember. God has been escorted out of public education, Hollywood and television openly promote an anti-Christian message, government has grown more godless regardless of political party, more people seem confused about their gender, and we continue to kill more than 1 million babies through abortion every year.

Some are wondering if America’s defiance toward God has gone beyond the point of redemption. Today we discuss and speculate: is it possible for America to again become a great nation by repenting, preaching and standing on God’s Word? What would have to happen to make it so? With all that is happening in our country and world, we need to remember with God, nothing is impossible.

How Serious is the North Korea Threat?

Last weekend, North Korea successfully tested a hydrogen bomb.  Already possessing nukes and threatening to use them against the U.S., the fact they now have hydrogen bombs raises the stakes dramatically for two reasons:  First, hydrogen bombs are far more powerful than simple nuclear weapons, and second, a hydrogen bomb is much more plausible for what might be a worst nightmare for our nation.  Some suggest an electronic magnetic pulse bomb (EMP) could wipe out every computer and electronic capability of our nation for up to a full year. If that happens, government experts predict the casualty rate could be as high as 90% in our nation and it would practically eliminate America as a world power.

This morning we discuss the threat and ask how Christians should respond in the face of potential tragedy.

In our first segment today, we check in with Counter Culture Mom, Tina Marie Griffin, to discuss dangers in media for our children, practical alternatives for parents, and a big event coming up in a few weeks for women.

Syria, Chemical Weapons and Biblical Prophecy

Thursday evening, the United States launched a devastating attack on a Syrian Air Force base, from which a chemical weapons attack against its own people was based two days earlier. The world is once again on edge since Syria is allied with Russia, and many are wondering if this attack will escalate into regional war pitting two nuclear superpowers against one another.

Bible prophecy focuses heavily on Israel and the Middle East. Joining us today is Pastor Carl Gallups, an author and Bible prophecy teacher. We discuss current events and the chaos in the Middle East, viewing it all through the lens of scripture.

Fake News and Christian Discernment

Charles Spurgeon once rightly said, “Discernment is not a matter of simply telling the difference between right and wrong; rather it is telling the difference between right and almost right.” Today, Pastor Randy White joins us to discuss discernment, fake news, and having the correct biblical perspective on our times and how to prepare for the challenging days our nation and church face.

A Battle Over Values, Culture, and Media

Fifty years seems like a long time to most of us, but in the scope of history it is a very short period of time. Over the past fifty years America has been transformed from arguably the greatest Christian nation in the world to one of the most pagan nations in the world, compliments of the Progressive/Marxist left.

Then, in our “Media Watch” segment, we look at stores involving how the media typically reports when it comes to the pro-life/pro-abortion issue as well as news involving terrorism. Once again, we point out just how far from our Christian foundation our nation has fallen.

A Nefarious Plot

With hundreds of millions of dollars spent, and the majority of Americans invested in the election of the next president, people have fallen into basically one of two “camps”: Those who believe Donald Trump will turn our nation around, and those who believe he will run it into the ground. The truth is this: Donald Trump is neither our savior, nor is he the Antichrist. But most Americans have been conditioned to look to men for solutions instead of humbling ourselves before God and seeking His solutions.

My guest this morning wrote a fascinating book laying out his thoughts on why America seems headed for disaster–and why it is futile to look for hope in a person or political party. Steve Deace is an author, radio talk show host and committed disciple of Jesus Christ who is a student of the Bible, history and politics. His book “A Nefarious Plot” has been widely hailed as an excellent critique of the challenges America faces and why we seem incapable of returning our nation to its former greatness.

Forget the ‘Good Old Days’ and Press On!

It’s better to go to a funeral and get a reality check than go to a party. Why? Perspective. Death is a reminder for us (ten out of ten people die) so what are we doing with the life God has given us?

Yes, we might have a hard time forgetting – regardless of whether or not the experiences were happy or sad.

Some of us might look back and say those were happier times while others had such horrific childhoods or painful life experiences, they’re doing the best to overcome the effects of the past. For the Christian, “to live is Christ and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:21). Joy is a fruit of the Spirit and the joy of the Lord is our strength. Happiness is temporary and depends on circumstances as well as our perception of things. True joy however, is a gift from God. Press on in Him, dear friend.

God is Love

In the book of 1 John, the writer tells us God is love. In fact He loves so perfectly that He provided every person the opportunity to be forgiven of our sins and to spend eternity with Him through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ. Greater love than this the world has never known.

God loves all His creation, but does He love all men equally? Are we all “children” of God? And is God’s love and provision alone enough for mankind to spend eternity in Heaven? Pastor Mike Abendroth joins us to discuss the incomparable love of God.

In the third segment, we look at a huge settlement imposed on a Wisconsin School District because they allegedly ‘discriminated” against the bathroom wishes of a self-identified transgender student.

Remembering Our Persecuted Family

We take so much for granted in America where our religious freedoms are concerned, and many of us can feel somewhat disconnected with our brothers and sisters in the Lord around the world. Being a committed disciple of Jesus Christ is an invitation to mocking and ridicule here in the states, but in many nations it is an invitation to persecution, imprisonment and even death. Despite Satan’s attempts to intimidate or silence Christians, the gospel is being preached in every nation and there are saints who remain committed to Christ.

How can we in America help our persecuted brethren? Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs joins us for an update. You absolutely must listen to his miraculous story in the first ten minutes of the interview about how God guided a donkey to bring Bibles to Christians by walking miles after crossing a very dangerous Syrian border.

Also, Tortured for Christ: the Movie, a very powerful film will be released March 5 at select theaters. This is a great challenge and reminder for true believers to serve Christ and to witness for Him no matter the cost.

The Overwhelming March Toward Globalism

People thought it was a joke when Donald Trump announced he would run – and most did not believe he could actually be elected President of the United States. But it happened, and no matter what you think of him, it is obvious he is driving the globalists and socialists into a frenzy. Their plans for a one world government are now being challenged by a man many didn’t see coming. He is challenging the status quo, the Democrats, the United Nations and the globalist elites at every turn; and he is doing the unthinkable in their eyes: supporting Israel.

Some will go to any extreme to try and derail or stop President Trump and things sure are heating up. The Bible is clear that a one world government under the influence of Satan and his puppet, the Antichrist, will one day rule mankind until Jesus returns. But just how close are we to that and can anything be done to slow down the inevitable?

Gary Kah of Hope For the World has studied globalism and one world religion movements for decades; he joins us with the latest news and informed, biblical perspective.
