Just when you think this fallen world couldn’t get any more twisted or evil, the morning headlines greet us and the world again testifies to the depravity of man and the need for Jesus Christ. An insecure former TV star spends millions on a sex change operation, and receives an award for “courage” by the nation’s largest sports television network. Our nation signs a “peace accord” with Iran all the while their leaders continue to publicly call for death to all Christians and Jews. And in Oregon there is legislation proposed that would allow thirteen year old youth to have sex change operations without the consent of their parents. Romans Chapter One is being fulfilled right before our eyes!
As Christians we are called to be a unique people, set apart for the glory of God. But we live in a fallen world that hates God more each day, and is pressuring us to choose between our love of Him and the things of this world. How do we as Christians understand God’s orderly plan for our lives and resist the evil one and his minions who seek to destroy and kill? And how do we reach the lost of this world with the Gospel of forgiveness and eternal life when the trappings and desires of this world seduce them into eternal damnation?
Joining us this morning to discuss these and other issues is Dave Wager, president of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute in northern Wisconsin. Dave is also co-hosts a radio program on our station designed to help young people understand the Truth of God’s Word. Check out HopeNet Radio with Dave Wager and Jeff Strommen Sunday evenings from 7 – 9 and have your teens tune in!
Stand Up For The Truth is a radio and online ministry that covers news of the day, trends in the church and theological issues that Christians deal with and talk about every day, and we give you a place to be educated, equipped and connected to help you discern along the way. But most importantly, we point you to Christ Jesus as our Savior, and His Word – the Scriptures, as the truth that you can depend on. In fact, you should filter everything you read, hear and consume as a believer – including what you find on this program – through the Scriptures to see if it lines up.
