TODAY’S GUEST:  Pastor Shane Idleman is the founder and lead pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship, in Lancaster, California and now Leona Valley, Ca. He began the Westside Christian Radio Network in 2019. He’s the author of eight books including his timely 2020 book, “If My People: In Case of National Emergency, Read This.”

Host, David Fiorazo and Shane Idleman discuss the direction of the church and America if we don’t right the ship immediately. Can we stop the downward spiral of morality in our culture if pastors and ministry leaders do not preach the truth with boldness, equip the saints, and address the pressing issues of the day? They touch on he need for revival or awakening along with a renewed commitment to seek the approval of God rather than man; what is appropriate church music for worship and what will it take for pulpits to be aflame in righteousness once again?

“Let me be brutally honest – in these dire times, if you don’t make prayer and worship a priority you will not succeed. Casual Christianity will not cut it and Microwave Christianity has no value when it comes to defeating the enemy.“

“Change will only occur when there is a strong conviction of sin, accompanied by genuine faith, humility, and sincere repentance. May God grant us the wisdom and strength to proclaim these truths. We must stop confusing God’s patience with His approval, open churches, and preach with conviction from the pulpits again. “The church was silent when she should have cried out” (Dietrich Bonhoeffer). Sound familiar? Boldness while fully surrendering everything to God is our only hope. There is no Plan B.” Pastor Shane Idleman
