Dismissing Doctrine, Islam, Witchcraft

10/22/2018
More
Last week, some media outlets covered a story of a group of Witches gathering to cast a curse on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Their curse called for him to suffer physically and emotionally and lead to his eventual death. The secular outlets that covered it mostly laughed it off as foolishness. But to dismiss witches casting spells may be foolish and ignorant as well. Should these curses be dismissed or taken seriously? Elijah Abraham has traveled to dozens of countries sharing...

Questions, Comments, and a Call from Angry Listener

10/19/2018
More
It's Friday. There are always so many good questions and comments to get to, so her we go. My daughter is 16 and wants nothing to do with church anymore, even though we raised her in church, the word, and prayer at home. She claims Christians are hypocrites and I fear she will be lost when she goes off to college. I hear more Scripture in one hour on your show than I hear in a month coming from our pastor on Sundays. Other than in Christ, is there any hope for our children and...

The Growing Complexity of Freedom of Speech

10/18/2018
More
The constitutionally protected right of freedom of speech and expression used to be a pretty straight forward issue. But with the advent of social media, corporate "branding", and a society that is easily offended it has become a much more complex issue. This morning we look at a couple stories that point out the new reality facing us in a society that claims to value freedom of speech but is becoming increasingly intolerant of any view that opposes a humanistic, God-hating agenda. In our...

What is Behind the Modern Liberal Curtain?

10/17/2018
More
When you watch a movie with great special effects, what you see looks amazing (Buildings exploding, giant dinosaurs, super heroes flying). But when you look behind the curtain so to speak, and see how computer generated imaging produces these effects, the magic wears off and you realize it is all fantasy and illusion. Today, we look at the hard core progressive movement in our nation and how it is built on contradiction and illusion, but sadly most Americans never take the time to look at...

A Contrast of Worldviews

10/16/2018
More
The Word of God and the ways of this fallen world are in complete contradiction with one another. What God calls "evil" the world thinks of as "good". A Biblical Worldview gives us eternal hope in spite of all we see around us. The world offers nothing but eventual despair and eternal separation from the One who created and sustains us. Things are getting so bizarre in the world that as Christians we are often unsure how to react. Do we get angry or look with compassion upon those around us...

Postmodernism & America’s Failed Education System

10/15/2018
More
Alarming things are going on behind the scenes in public education that many parents have no idea about while many others are too busy to care. Since the 1960s, the system has flipped on its head. Political correctness and postmodernism have ruled American education to the point that by the college level, there now exists an intolerance of opposing views if students do not support liberal ideology and the progressive left. Hostility toward Christianity has been cultivated for decades as...

No Comment or Question Off Limits

10/12/2018
More
So many controversial issues and debates, so little time! Here's what listeners want to discuss today: To what level can a Christian be depressed? How much does our faith play into our emotional and mental health, and how much depends on trusting God? I know spiritual warfare is real because we are warned many times about it in the New Testament, but to what extent can demons influence Christians? My strong hunch is that a majority of Americans have bought the lies about Justice...

Mormon No Longer

10/11/2018
More
In the final segment this morning, Mike and David look at an important announcement from leadership of the Mormon Church: they will no longer call themselves "Mormons" so they can, in their words, emphasize their "Christian" doctrine. Those of us who understand the Bible compared to the foundational beliefs of Mormonism realize this is pure deception, and we'll explore the potential reasons they are making this change in name only. We'll also look at an interfaith religious coalition's...

The Reality of Demons and Spiritual Warfare

10/10/2018
More
Our special guest today is author, Dr. Karl Payne, pastor of Leadership Development and Discipleship at Antioch Bible Church in Washington who formerly served as chaplain for the NFL's Seattle Seahawks. He has warned that America's current cultural climate is paving the way for overt demonic activity. Karl Payne talks with Mike and David about the importance of Christians recognizing the reality of spiritual warfare, and then responding to it with the Word of God, faith, and prayer. Daily...

Same Facts, Different Conclusions

10/9/2018
More
It is interesting how two people can view the same exact facts and evidence, yet come to two completely different conclusions based on those facts. Born-again believers look at the wonders of this world and the created universe completely convinced it was all crafted by an amazing God. But atheists and skeptics look at the same evidence and facts and conclude that it all happened out of random chance and chaos. As the world started introducing ideas such as free sexual expression in the...

Delusion, Illusion, and Spiritual Warfare

10/8/2018
More
The stated or apparent issue is usually not the real issue. As Christians and political Conservatives celebrate the victory concerning the nomination of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court, there will be a tendency to breathe a sigh of relief and just continue as usual. But doing that underestimates the damage that may have been done to our nation and even the professing Christian Church in America. In the midst of this important victory, were the enemies of our nation and most...

Listener Questions & Comments

10/5/2018
More
The Bible warns us that in the final days good would be seen as evil and evil seen as good. This is to be expected of a fallen, sinful world, but not within the Church itself. Anyone with a modicum of common sense can see what is happening in the Senate confirmation meetings over Judge Brett Kavanaugh: godless radicals are stooping to new lows to destroy a man they think might one day hinder a woman's "right" to kill the child in her womb. Make no mistake: this spiritual war is over...

Voting in Wisconsin; Welcoming Baal to Washington D.C.

10/4/2018
More
There is always a certain arrogance to our sin. And the greater the pride or arrogance, the greater the sin. America, founded on Judeo-Christian principles and values, is rapidly turning away from God in her arrogance, symbolized best by our very own government and the nation's capitol in Washington D.C. America's defiance of God has now reached a new level as a replica of the Arch of Baal has taken up residence on the National Mall of Washington D.C.---and lawmakers republican and Democrat...

Countering Culture & Defining ‘Born-Again’ Christian

10/3/2018
More
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...

Swimming in a Cesspool & Thinking We’re Clean

10/2/2018
More
Our nation, not to mention the entire world, is in deeper trouble every passing day. Moral boundaries and clear lines that used to delineate right from wrong have become blurred and minimized; they are now moving targets that have no basis in the consistent moral standards of God's Word. Instead, in our ill-fated attempts to make this a better world, we impose constantly changing human standards on society and individuals: standards that change from year to year ushering confusion and...

The Challenge and Opportunity of Islam’s Growth

10/1/2018
More
When you see someone who is a Muslim, what is the first thing that pops into your mind? Fear that he might be a radical terrorist? Or an opportunity to share the Gospel with him? Truth be told many Christians probably experience both initial reactions to some extent. Or perhaps you feel nothing because you believe that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. The relationship and conflict between Biblical Christianity and Islam is a unique one; and there is a systematic attempt to blur...

Here are some of the topics addressed today and questions our listeners asked: Could you please expand the discussion a little more on the Parable of the Sower/Seed mentioned last week? What does the expression, "the issue is never the issue" mean? Not sure I agree this nation is trending conservative than it appears in culture and politics How can any Democrat Christian continue to vote for their party after the disgusting display in the Senate hearings on Justice Brett Kavanaugh? It's...

Will the Radical Tactics of the Left Backfire?

9/27/2018
More
Our worldview is the starting point for how we judge facts and truth. How we view the world affects our decisions and actions. From a biblical perspective, Christians see things through the lens of Scripture. What we're witnessing in America today is the result of two opposing worldviews on a collision course. The battle comes down to those who trust and believe God's Word and those who trust and believe man's word. These are incompatible. Two entities that cannot coexist are children of...

Communist China: A Model for Coming Global Persecution

9/26/2018
More
The nation of China is going through significant societal change, and many nations might model their way to enslave citizens and eliminate individual freedoms. You won't hear these stories on secular news because they are blind to how the Bible warns against the Globalist Movement, and the media seems to support the agenda. Mike and David look at fascinating developments regarding church and state in China. Catholic Leadership in Rome has struck a deal with China that will allow the...

Why Don’t We Share the Gospel More Frequently?

9/25/2018
More
Jesus said, "If you love me you will obey all I command (John 14:15)." His final command was for His followers to share the gospel and make disciples. With few exceptions, most of us only talk about God when it is convenient or we 'feel led' to do so. Why are Christians in America not more passionate about sharing the good news with those who are perishing? Is it shyness? A desire to please man rather than God? Not wanting to offend others? Not wanting to be seen as judgmental? Are we just...
