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...

Preparing & Protecting the Flock

12/11/2018
More
In our final segment today, we'll cite yet another example of the radical LGBTQ movement actually hurting the people they claim to be helping. This time, their insane policies are harming battered women by putting transgender issues above the safety of vulnerable women. In our first two segments, elders have a responsibility to teach the Word of God, equip believers, and protect the flock against false teachers infiltrating the church. But what about the dangers of the increasing anger and...

Keeping an Eye on Israel, Prophecy

12/10/2018
More
As our nation continues to be distracted by media spin, alleged Russian collusion, politics, social issues, holidays, and the daily drama of the Stock Market, many are ignoring events in Israel and the Middle East that may be pointing to the continuing fulfillment of biblical prophecy. While it is currently in rebellion against God because of rejecting Jesus as Messiah, Israel is nonetheless very important to God and His final plans for this world are centered on Israel…and a lot is going on...

Questions, Comments, and Biblical Answers

12/7/2018
More
Questions and comments from listeners today include: Is it wrong that I don't tithe to my church but instead support Christians organizations and ministries that are spreading the gospel and equipping believers? My pastor said this is wrong, but my church is not making disciples. Are Word Faith or prosperity preachers crooks for making promises that God will bless people financially if they give money to them? As believers, can we sanctify ourselves? I am a former Muslim and appreciate...

Feelings and Opinions Vs Beliefs and Truth

12/6/2018
More
Feelings, opinions, beliefs and truth are parts of the thought process that leads to our ultimate actions and behaviors. But the order in which they form our complex thought and subsequent action makes all the difference in the world. If we get them in the wrong order we can start down a slippery slope where our beliefs and actions contradict what God says in His Word, and nothing good will come out of that. But if we align them correctly according to the teachings of the Bible, we can lead...

Did God Use Evolution as His Process of Creation?

12/5/2018
More
The number of Christians who trust the authority of the Bible and are truly taking a stand for what they believe is rapidly decreasing. Many churches that were once stalwarts for the faith have slowly compromised, moving into obscurity, becoming either irrelevant, or in some cases actually hostile to the Bible. This doesn’t happen overnight, but rather through deception and sometimes subtle teachings that gradually erode their views on the authority and sufficiency of Scripture. One of...

Sexuality and The Church in America

12/4/2018
More
There is no doubt we live in a sexually-charged society. God has given us clear definitions and teachings about sexual relations and gender, but society has brought confusion, and many people - young and old - are suffering the consequences. Homosexuality is practically accepted and promoted and young people especially, are facing depression and emptiness because they have become confused about their God-given gender. God's Word gives us all the knowledge and instruction we need to...

Social Media Big Guns Silencing Christians

12/3/2018
More
Satan is the perfect liar. He has mastered his art of deception over thousands of years and he can present something to us that looks “good” when in reality it is his instrument for enslaving us once man abuses it. In the final segments today, Mike and David look at how the Internet, presented in the 1990s as man’s gateway to knowledge and communication, is slowly becoming a system of intimidation against anyone who dares to live by or proclaim Christians values. Are we willingly walking...

Listener Comments and Questions

11/30/2018
More
Friday is your show! Mike and David cover questions and comments from our listeners. Here are some of the questions, comments, and topics that Stand Up for the Truth listeners want to discuss today: Is the Bible clear on Christians tithing and giving? Doesn't President Trump promote violence just as much as the radicals on the Left? Hyper-grace is becoming a cancer in the church, leading to 'seeker-sensitive' Christianity How long should a church allow unrepentant sinners to remain in...

When Adults Eat Baby Food

11/29/2018
More
How would you feel if friends invited you to their home for dinner and when you sat down to eat they served jars of Gerber's baby food? Would you feel awkward, embarrassed or maybe even offended? But too many churches today are practically doing this with God's Word! Let's look at this from God's perspective as written in the Book of Hebrews: God has given us great principles and depths of wisdom in His Word and believers are instructed to move on to maturity in Christ, so how might He feel...

Is Israel Being Set Up for Invasion?

11/28/2018
More
The Bible teaches that Israel will be invaded one day and many will lose their lives as Satan makes one final effort to discredit God's promises to His chosen people. Most of the world will probably support this invasion because they are being deceived into thinking Israel is the problem or even the evil bully while her neighboring Muslim nations are victims of Israeli "oppression." Gary Kah of Hope for the World just returned from a trip to Israel, during which thousands of rockets were...

The Dangers of Emotion and Feelings Ruling Our Thought Process

11/27/2018
More
When our emotions and feelings rule our minds and hearts we could be headed into dangerous waters. Logic, knowledge and common sense are put on the back-burner, and we risk thoughts and behaviors that can be very damaging to us and others. Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute joins us this morning to discuss how we take our thoughts captive in Jesus Christ so we can avoid mistakes we might make when emotions and feelings rule our thought process and decision making. Daily podcast, relevant...

The Obsession With Finding Extraterrestrial Life

11/26/2018
More
The U.S. spend billions of dollars every year on space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life. Hollywood produces and people watch film after film suggesting we are not alone in the universe. There's something fascinating about the unknown. But scientists, a majority of whom are atheists, hoping to validate their theory of life on other planets, need only look to God's Word. Jay Seegert of the Starting Point Project is today's guest, here to discuss our obsession with alien...

Debating the Critical Issues of Our Time

11/21/2018
More
Our nation is at a serious crossroad with some big decisions to make. Politically, the gulf between Conservative and Liberal has grown big, nasty and probably no longer reconcilable, meaning compromise is probably a thing of the past. With studies showing a large percentage of younger people viewing Socialism favorably, our nation will most likely continue to be fundamentally transformed to the far left, just as former President Obama promised. Morally, socially, and economically our nation...

Will America Experience Another Civil War?

11/20/2018
More
In our final segments we cover a story of a Christian pastor who kicked a person dressed in drag out of his church in the middle of the service, and the backlash he is receiving on social media. In our lead story we look at the political polarization of America, which has never been greater. In the past both parties agreed on what needed to be done while sometimes disagreeing on how to implement the vision, but today the gulf of ideas between Conservative and Liberal values is so great many...

Political Issues Are Moral Issues: Elections and Christians

11/19/2018

Today's guest is author, pastor, and radio host Carl Gallups. He offers some solutions to the confusion about political issues and biblical issues Christians should be informed and concerned about. We discuss the Midterm election results, the spin of the liberal media, and the "migrant caravan" - how Mexico's systems are being overwhelmed near the border. In segment three, Mike and David discuss an article on the open agenda of Nancy Pelosi and the liberal Democrats to eradicate religious...

Listener Questions & Comments

11/16/2018
More
Here are some of this week's questions and comments from Stand Up for the Truth listeners: You guys always have great discussions with people from Ratio Christi - what a solid ministry. How do we best understand the topic of the eternal security of true believers? I was an atheist and many people planted seeds in me through the years. I don't think there is a 'one size fits all' method of evangelism. People are reached in different ways. Regarding witnessing and the true conversion of...

The Illusion of Radical Liberalism

11/15/2018
More
One of the most sinister things a person can do is to brainwash someone into thinking they are in a crisis and that the only way to get out of it is to buy what they are selling, when in reality what they are "selling" actually brings the crisis to fruition. That is exactly the hoax being perpetuated on America and the Christian church by radicals and progressives. Create a crisis and then offer a solution that actually brings the crisis about. John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio really...

A Shift in Educational Priorities

11/14/2018
More
The traditional purpose of education was to give children the basic skills they would need in life to grow into productive members of society, and able to earn a living. But we have seen a slow but dramatic shift in what education looks like over the past few decades. To some the focus now seems to be a sort of political indoctrination of our children, touting globalism and progressive ideals at the expense of teaching our children how to critically think and make their own decisions. This...
