What Happened to My Church?

1/16/2019
More
Many Christians in America are asking that question these days as we see a growing number of churches change. The Gospel of reconciliation being replaced with consumerism and our "best life now"; moves of the Holy Spirit being replaced with emotional manipulation through loud music and fog machines; and churches that look more and more like the world Jesus told us would hate us and that we should hate. But the changes introduced into American Christianity have been so subtle that many...

The Dangers of Masculinity

1/15/2019
More
The American Psychological Association recently released a study calling out what it perceives as the dangers of traditional masculinity warning that it leads men to hating women and LGBTQ people. As men are "marketed" to by corporate America we see confusing messages on what it means to be a man these days. Are we to be the strong, silent, rugged, macho guy? Or the sensitive, nurturing, submissive guy who sits back quietly and just accepts things the way they are? If we listen to the...

The Feminizing of American Christianity

1/14/2019
More
God created men and women equal but uniquely different. In His master plan, men are to be strong and loving leaders and wives are to respectfully submit to their husband's leadership. The Christian church in America needs real godly men, but at the time when they are needed most many are confused about what it means to be a true man of God. The world and its institutions that hate God have successfully minimized and redefined manhood, reducing many men to confused, quivering bowls of jelly...

Any Question Answered, No Topic Off Limits

1/11/2019
More
Questions and Comments from this week include: Our youth past or had the kids close their eyes, empty their minds, and meditate on whatever came into their minds. This is not a biblical form of meditation, is it? Did one of your guests say that Jesus became a man to show us a good example of how to live by the law and be sinless? Friends in our church say Jesus laid aside His deity in order to become a man. Would you please address this? My son-in-law is an active Baptist, but because he...

Pastors: Shepherds and Watchmen? Or CEOs and Cheerleaders?

1/10/2019
More
Today, Mike and David continue to look at an article titled "Why is Christianity Failing in America?" We look at the role of pastors, comparing the duties laid out in God's Word against the modern trends of American Christianity. If many of today's pastors have become cheerleaders and CEOs instead of teachers and watchmen and protectors of the 'flock,' is it because we as narcissistic people prefer it that way? Do we prefer a church where we are assured of how wonderful we are instead of...

A Redefining of Christianity in America

1/9/2019
More
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...

Are We Losing an Entire Generation to the Enemy?

1/7/2019
More
As public education, media, and government have become clearly opposed to God in the preceding decades, we have reached a point in time when Christianity has gone from the prevailing belief system in our nation to one that is under intellectual assault at every turn. Our children are immersed and indoctrinated by a public education system and entertainment industry that claims to offer them hope and truth when in reality, it is leading them to confusion and hopelessness. Yet many of us are...

Listener Questions and Comments

1/4/2019
More
It's Friday! That means we get to discuss many more questions and comments sent in by Stand Up for the Truth listeners. What is the name of your forthcoming book and can it be pre-ordered? I was deeply disturbed by what the pope said, elevating Mary above Jesus. Can people be truly born again, if they remain part of an unbiblical church? The Catechism teaches we are saved by faith in Jesus and God's grace. I think you are taking what the Pope said out of context. I left and recovered...

Why Christianity is Failing in America

1/3/2019
More
It's important we look at a recent study that discusses the many ways professing Christianity is not only failing our nation, but many who attend church services every week. As the professing church continues to conform and compromise with the world Jesus told us we are to hate, a growing number of churches sacrifice the pursuit of holiness for entertainment and secular growth programs. Mike and David touch on this dangerous path a growing number of churches and denominations are currently...

The Future of Christianity in America

1/2/2019
More
2019 will bring powerful and unique challenges and opportunities for the Christian Church in America. Satan's battle against the Church will intensify as he acquires more and more allies to join him in his plan to neutralize the Church by making it look more like the secular culture it is supposed to resist and oppose. We start this new year by looking at the prophetic signs of 2018 that might be pointing to the return of the Lord, along with the increased persecution of true believers...

At the end of the week, Mike answers your questions and comments live on the program. This week, Crash is filling in for David to discuss: Difference between apostasy and heresy Eternal security of the Believer Are we hypocrites when we admonish homosexuals while pretending we have no sexual sin in our lives? More discussion around our victory in court earlier this month Does our program share more Scripture daily than some local churches during their services? Andy Stanley's call to...

A New Age Invasion into Christianity

12/27/2018
More
When we do not hide God's Word in our heart and think on it regularly it is easy for false teachings and dangerous movements to find a place in our minds and hearts. Things that might sound good are actually dangerous beliefs that can lead us away from God and His Word, leading to all sorts of problems. While it is a broad term, "New Age" Philosophy is one of these dangerous belief systems, and we see it subtly infiltrating the hearts and minds of a growing number of professing Christians....

Gathering for Worship at Christmas

12/26/2018
More
Christmas Eve and Day are the most widely attended church gatherings every year in our nation. From committed believers to professing Christians fulfilling an "obligation", millions gather to hear about the birth of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh. These church services vary in scope, with many just focusing solely on the birth of Jesus but others using the opportunity to hear the full gospel message, including His death, burial and resurrection. And many of the beliefs we have come to...

It's been quite a ride this week since the news broke of our victory in court as we challenged a De Pere city "non-discrimination" ordinance. Many of you have weighed in with both praise as well as some criticism. Today, Mike addresses your comments and questions over the last couple weeks. Daily podcast, relevant articles on issues pertaining to Christians and more can be found on Stand Up For The Truth.

Standing Up to Bullying and Intimidation

12/20/2018
More
Rarely does outright persecution just happen out of the blue. It usually seeps in gradually, starting with free people not being diligent and thinking the persecution of another individual or institution is none of their concern. Once the proponents of persecution see that we lack the courage to stand up for others they naturally assume we will lack the backbone to stand up for ourselves, and they begin to pick away at our freedoms, breaking down our resistance. In every institution in our...

When Human Emotions Are Held Higher Than God’s Word

12/19/2018
More
Our human emotions are based on circumstances, prejudices, and programming. The heart is sick and emotions can lie to us. But God never changes and is incapable of lying. So when our human emotions conflict with God's Word it is clear that the truly born-again believer should trust in God's Word no matter what the world is trying to sell us. But the exact opposite is happening in our society and even in a growing number of churches. Logic and rational thought based on God's Word is being...

Increasing Persecution of Christians in India and Beyond

12/18/2018
More
Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer in Jesus Christ, travels around the world teaching and equipping pastors and Christians where persecution is a daily occurrence. Many of them risk their lives, traveling many hours to join other believers in Christian fellowship. Elijah just returned from India, a Hindu nation where the government might say they allow people to worship freely, but persecution and the murder of Christians is accelerating rapidly. Elijah joins us to...

The Dr. Duke Show, Religious Freedom, and Radicals in Academia

Dr Duke Show hosts, Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project join us today for some almost unbelievable education updates. You’re not going to believe what is actually happening on college campuses and in public school classrooms in America. Some in the LGBTQ community are now openly admitting their goal is to “groom young children.” Their agenda has moved on from diversity to inclusion. We discuss what they mean by “inclusion.” We look at recent news stories showing how...

Chipping Away at Christian Freedoms

12/13/2018
More
We see and hear the stories every day of Christians in China, Iran, Pakistan and Africa being harassed, imprisoned and sometimes murdered for their faith in Jesus Christ. We see the stories here in America of Christians being bullied and intimidated into silence. Yet, we cannot seem to connect the dots. This bullying and intimidation is a precursor to the coming violent persecution of Christians here in America---a persecution few churches and individuals are prepared for. This morning,...

Is a True Believer’s Salvation Eternally Secure?

12/12/2018
More
A couple weeks ago we interviewed Pastor Mike Abendroth on the doctrine of eternal security of the true believer through faith in Jesus Christ. Some listeners have written claiming our belief is wrong and that the belief in the eternal security of the believer is wrong and dangerous. So today Pastor Abendroth joins us again to address those concerns on this very important doctrine. We will also talk with Mike about sincere questions unbelievers have about God and The Bible and how the...
