Category: Hot Topics
Today we discuss what the Bible has to say about civil disobedience, signs of the end times; vaccines, the mark of the Beast. Also, does Scripture condone slavery? What about social justice movements today such as Black Lives Matter?Read More
WE DISCUSS the recent Supreme Court decision “protecting” LGBT employees and what that means for churches, and the advancement of the radical sex agenda in public schools. Heidi gives an update on her home state of Washington and the ‘Rona’ virus tyranny and fear plus her thoughts on what’s going on in Seattle. Chaz? Chop?!
State government leaders have lost their backbones and minds. There has also been a dramatic spike in Homeschooling interest; we discuss the great mask debate, unfair attacks on police, and the truth about Black Lives Matter. We also touch on how people react when they are presented new facts and truth (Cognitive Dissonance) – they lash out. (Remember to pray for those in ministry.)Read More
On today’s program, we get to tackle some hot topics in our culture and in the church and get a pastor’s perspective. Our guest is Pastor Landon Churchill of Freedom Fellowship Church in Kaukauna, Wisconsin (founded in 2007). So many issues, so little time. Let’s get right to the important issues of the day!Read More
Today’s special guest, Rebecca Kiessling was conceived in rape and is also an abortion survivor. Since 1995, Rebecca has been an international pro-life speaker; she is also an adoption advocate and actively promotes 100% pro-life legislation.

It’s another Friday! That means more listener questions and comments – our favorite program of the week. Here are a handful of topics we discuss today:
Bethel Church – some great worship but some flawed teaching as well?
Two extremes in Christian churches: legalistic with little grace or abusing grace and not confronting sin
My wife wants nothing to do with God or church, but said she was a Christian when we got married four years ago. What should I do on Sundays?
Home churches can be good or bad depending on the teaching and leadership
The danger of focusing on “common ground” when it comes to Christianity and false religions
I have a love/hate relationship with your show!
We are in the world but not of the world, and need proper perspective when it comes to sharing the gospel and battling for truth in culture
Thanks for the right spiritual balance you have on Stand UpRead More
Mike and David continue to look at the growing spiritual and moral insanity taking over America and the influence it is having on American Christianity. The Bible warns us that in the final days good would be seen as evil and evil seen as good. We see this unfolding in our nation as the radical Left pushes an unbiblical worldview and establishes a new standard for supposed “morality” that completely contradicts the Word of God. And a growing number of churches embrace this unbiblical worldview in order to be seen as seeker friendly and accepting, even to the point that the church no longer has any influence on a decaying society.
Elijah Abraham is a former Muslim, now a committed born-again believer in Jesus Christ. He travels around the world teaching in churches in heavily Muslim nations equipping believers to reach people with the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Elijah talks about the moral decay in our nation contrasting how churches in areas of intense persecution approach church compared to America.Read More
At the end of the week, Mike answers your questions and comments live on the program. This week, Crash is filling in for David to discuss:
Difference between apostasy and heresy
Eternal security of the Believer
Are we hypocrites when we admonish homosexuals while pretending we have no sexual sin in our lives?
More discussion around our victory in court earlier this month
Does our program share more Scripture daily than some local churches during their services?
Andy Stanley’s call to “unhitch” from the Old Testament
It’s been quite a ride this week since the news broke of our victory in court as we challenged a De Pere city “non-discrimination” ordinance. Many of you have weighed in with both praise as well as some criticism. Today, Mike addresses your comments and questions over the last couple weeks.Read 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 importantly enemies of God emboldened to use evil tactics to pursue their agenda in the future?
Are we seeing the beginning of a new type of war against truth that supersedes anything we have ever witnessed in our nation? And has spiritual warfare in our nation reached a fever point where things could get very ugly for true believers in the future?
Joining Mike and David to discuss this is Pastor and best-selling author, Carl Gallups. Carl also has extensive experience in law enforcement and this morning, we talk about how everything might have changed in America based on what we witnessed on the Senate floor the past three weeks.Read 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 abortion, a Sacrament of the Democrat Party.
Stalin and Lenin referred to them as “useful idiots” blind to truth because they rejected God and are rallying behind lies and slander in order to allow legalized abortion to remain unhindered. Sadly, even in the American church, a number of these evildoers have infected church leadership in every denomination of Christianity. For example, the National Council of Churches has called for Judge Cavanaugh to step aside, officially siding with evil and the murder of innocent children.
LISTENER QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS
What is the proper, biblical stance? Pre-trib, mid-trib, or post-trib?
How can there be accountability in a church when there are no elders and little discipleship?
Why do so many churches avoid teaching about Bible prophecy when it’s nearly a third of Scripture?
I think the era of Big Brother is being implemented right before our eyes.
Thanks for having guests like Elijah Abraham and James Walker, and reminding us that Christians are to love and share the truth with Muslims, not fear them.
I am no fan of most Republicans in Washington, but the Democrat Party has turned evil right before our eyes in their zeal for political power and are willing to destroy anyone who stands in their way. They’ve sold out to the LGBTQ movement and radical Marxists.
Can you explain why some Christians defend Andy Stanley while others criticize him regarding his comments on unhitching from the Old Testament?Read More
Today’s guest is Pastor Carl Gallups with a brand new book out: Gods of Ground Zero. He explains the importance of the Garden of Eden and how it is related to the holy mountain. Gallups points to the pivotal chapter of Genesis chapter 3.
Much of the real message of the Garden of Eden has been adjusted over time. Think of the eternal ramifications of that truth. Literally everything wrong with the world and our own personal lives, as well as the continual deluge of filth that you read in today’s headlines is directly linked to the Garden of Eden. Why is it then that we so frequently insist upon turning that vital chapter into an almost childlike bedtime story?
Mike and David also cover more of the disturbing trend of demonizing anyone who dares uphold a biblical view of sexuality. This time, Chicago Cubs’ pro baseball player, Daniel Murphy is coming under fire for comments he made back in 2015.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
Today, we catch up with Mike Abendroth and discuss how Christians can maintain a balanced, biblical perspective through all that is happening in America and the world. We also look at some lessons from the Old Testament Book of Nahum, discuss its context, and some practical points from Pastor Mike.Read More
Steve’s church was fined $10,000 for holding a Christmas Eve service and not following New Mexico governor’s mandates; we discuss also the battle between Christians and government, unreasonable state restrictions on churches, obeying God or man, open censorship of American citizens by Big Tech and liberal media activists, and the responsibility of pastors to lead in these dark times.Read More
We discuss the prophetic implications of all that is going on in the world including the economic, psychological, and spiritual impact of converging events. 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
