The Enneagram has captured the imagination of and been embraced by of a growing number of evangelicals. It was first introduced into the church by disciples of Roman Catholic priest, mystic and “contemplative,” Father Richard Rohr. It is claimed that the Enneagram is ancient, was used by many cultures, and is not only from God but is “the face of God.” The Enneagram is a spiritual tool, but is it a spiritual tool which brings about better understanding of one’s self and the God of Scripture? That is the question we discuss on today’s podcast with Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach.Read More
The book of Jude is yet another warning for today’s Christian church. We must know the truth and learn from biblical hjistory! Deceivers and false teachers have infiltrated the ranks and are leading many astray.
Early church leaders were concerned about false teachings and rightly so. There’s nothing new under the sun as today, many have accepted unbiblical ideas or teachings because on the surface they might sound good. Few understand the underlying and ongoing war against the Truth.Read More
Whatever happened to the Emergent or ’emerging’ church? We sure don’t hear much about it anymore, and there are reasons for that. But the truth is the cancer of this deception and its rotten fruit – including a rejection of the deity of Jesus Christ, rebellion against God’s word and moral absolutes, social justice, liberalism, and identity politics – has infected Christian churches across America.
It is quite clearly and simply a war against the Truth. Today we revisit some church history and review this movement as well as the dangerous, unbiblical road many Christians are following today: a path leading away from God’s Word. TODAY’S GUEST is author and watch-woman on the wall, Mary Danielsen.Read More

The race is on, just as the Bible foretold. Various individuals, groups and organizations are speeding ahead trying to convince people that the God of the Bible either doesn’t truly exist, or that He would want us to come together and connect the “Christ consciousness” in each of us so that human beings can create utopia on earth. Today we take a closer look at the “oneness” movement, the age of re-enchantment, earth worship, and the openness to practically anything except biblical Christianity.
Carl Teichrib, who has studied the New Age and the various movements and organizations promoting spiritual unity and “oneness” joins Mike and David to discuss ecumenism, the World Council of Churches, Catholicism and Islam, the UN, Burning Man, and the World Parlament of Religions. Carl also provides insights from his extensive research contained in his latest book Game of Gods: The Temple of Man in the Age of Re-Enchantment.Read More
In segment 1, we have a discussion about what so-called Liberal Christianity is and how it is infecting a growing number of churches and denominations. We connect with author Dan Jensen. His excellent book is titled A False Kind of Christianity.
As we see more young people and leaders abandoning the Christian faith, it is important we assess their thought process and motives in doing so. (They are taking some followers with them and away from the truth.) To simply argue about whether or not they were ever truly converted believers can be unproductive.
The reality is that many younger people either want nothing to do with historical, Biblical Christianity or they are finding churches and denominations that are redefining and diluting Christian doctrines to line up with their worldly values and philosophies.
In our final segment today Mike and David share a thought-provoking perspective from John Stonestreet of BreakPoint about why this is happening and how we might address it.Read More
Do we have to choose between going to church or watching on-line teachings?
I cannot find a local church willing to teach Bible prophecy and tackle hot topics
SOZO/Theophostic “ministries” infiltrating some churches.
Should our experiences rule over our thoughts?
Is tithing a biblical requirement?
Are the Letters to the Churches in Revelation applicable today?
Can a true believer fall away from or “give back” their salvation in Christ?
Our nation is seeing an infusion of radical progressive thought threatening the very foundation and future of our nation. The Church in America is also witnessing a surge in hyper-liberalism leading many to question the fundamental and traditional teachings of the Apostles and early Church. Is Progressive Christianity to be considered a part of Biblical Christianity or does it contradict Scripture?Read More
For Christians seeking to understand the last days, fewer things grab our attention than talk of a Middle East Peace Plan between Israel and her enemies. Many believe Daniel chapter 9 talks about a seven year peace treaty between Anti-Christ and Israel that will usher in the final countdown to the return of Jesus to judge all men and nations.
President Trump is unveiling his “Deal of the Century,” aimed at bringing peace between Israel and her enemies, and many in the Christian community are watching to see if it is eventually accepted and implemented. But before we get the cart before the horse, let’s take a look at the practicality of the plan being acceptable to all parties concerned. And remember, even if a peace plan is eventually signed that doesn’t mean it is the peace treaty Daniel prophesies. There have been others before this.
John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio joins Mike and David to talk about this as well as continue our discussion from yesterday on Marxism invading American Christianity.Read More
As American Christianity generally bends over backwards to be seen as “loving” to the world, we have seen secular culture extend its influence within the church. From the social justice movement to the powerful LGBTQ lobby, we see more and more churches accommodating things of this world directly contradictory to the Bible. And now, with another presidential election on the horizon we are seeing an enhanced push for the church to embrace something that is directly opposed to the Bible: Marxist Socialism.
Mike and David look at the growth of socialist ideals within professing Christianity and why this is ominous and dangerous to the church.Read More
Why does all this matter and why is it dangerous? Political liberals are one thing; we know exactly where they stand; But religious liberals have infiltrated churches across America and have deceived many. These men (and women) generally believe many of the same things as extremists on the left, and yet claim to be “Christian.”Read More
As we saw in 2020, forces of darkness have been hard at work. The enemy – both human and demonic – coming against us hard. It is stunning, the speed with which our country, culture, freedoms, and very way of life have been attacked and dismantled!
If there was ever a time in American history that the Christian Church needs to be an essential, gospel-preaching, influential, faith-building, fruit-bearing, saint-equipping church, it’s now.Read More

Mike emphasizes the urgent need for Christians to be obedient to the great commission. We also talk about the apostasy of Pope Francis and his continued departure from Romans Catholic and biblical faithRead More
An alarmingly high percentage of youth are walking away from their faith today. We now know it is at much younger ages when children begin to doubt what they have learned. Many studies have been done and the evidence is clear. What are we doing wrong as Christian parents and the church in general?Read More
