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.

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?
