Christians, Santa Claus, and Holiday Traditions

Some Christians today say there’s nothing wrong with any modern holiday traditions as long as the celebration is around Jesus. Others say Christians should not lie to their children and should have nothing to do with Santa Claus because of the greed and materialism this season produces. But this leads to more questions – such as what should parents tell their children about Santa Claus?

Are We Being Conditioned to Hate Each Other?

The Bible tells us the one thing that should distinguish God’s people from the world is our love of Him and one another.  We are taught to not only love one another as Christians, but to forgive our enemies, pray for them, and never respond to hatred with hatred.  We are to be a unique and holy people, separate from the ways and teachings of this world.

But that is not what Satan and this world wants.  It is taunting us, hoping to provoke us toward anger and hatred, so they can say that we Christians are just as bad as them.  Once the light of the world is neutralized what is to stop the world’s march toward evil?

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins Mike LeMay and Crash Connell this morning to discuss how we are being conditioned to hate rather than love, and how we can avoid this trap.

The Peace of God

Paul tells us in Philippians Chapter 4 that we should rejoice in the Lord at all times, not be anxious and receive the peace of God that surpasses all human understanding.  Now which of us would not want total peace?  Yet which of us as Christians truly experiences it?

We have been forgiven of our sins and received the promise of eternity with God in heaven, yet we continue to struggle and worry about this life.  Instead of exhibiting peace we are often filled with angst.

Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins Mike and Crash today to discuss what the peace of God looks like and how we can enter it and enjoy the life He has given us.

Social Media Big Guns Silencing Christians

Satan is the perfect liar. He has mastered his art of deception over thousands of years and he can present something to us that looks “good” when in reality it is his instrument for enslaving us once man abuses it. In the final segments today, Mike and David look at how the Internet, presented in the 1990s as man’s gateway to knowledge and communication, is slowly becoming a system of intimidation against anyone who dares to live by or proclaim Christians values. Are we willingly walking into slavery through our obsession with social media?

In the first segment, Mike and David look at how radical leftists twist information and opinions to advance their godless agenda. Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council joins us to discuss how the radical left is now blaming Christians for the crisis in adoption, when, in reality, we are a solution to the crisis.

If Technology Becomes Our Master

The world is changing rapidly and the capabilities of technology are increasing at an alarming rate. Technological devices that serve us today could one day be used to monitor and control us.

Patrick Wood of Technocracy News joins Mike and David to look at some of the frightening scenarios in the coming years. Once Artificial Intelligence is “let out of the bottle” can anything stop it from being used to enslave us?

In our final segments, we look at some sad and shocking stories including how professing Christians continue to fall for theologies and beliefs that the Bible warns us about. This is not a joke, but we’ll discuss concerns about a self-proclaimed “Christian” Witch, and in another story, a modern-day “Prophet” of the Most High God.

Abusing the Word of God for Political Gain

It’s always stunning when Liberals use the Word of God to promote their anti-biblical stances; especially when they are the ones that usually fight tooth and nail against the government creating laws based on scripture. But hypocrisy knows no boundaries and this morning we look at quoted from Elizabeth Warren and Senator Cory Booker, abusing the scriptures to promote a pro-abortion agenda. yes, that’s the same Cory Booker that Willow Creek elevated as a next great “Christian” leader at its leadership Summit just a few years back.

And not to be outdone in abusing scripture, Red Letter Christians have once again shown their true colors of hypocrisy, claiming to be “pro-life,” but refusing to condemn abortion as sin and murder.

In our first segment this morning, Mike and Crash check in with Tina Griffin, Counter-Culture Mom, to discuss ways to protect our children from the dangers of Hollywood, video games and the internet.

Ken Ham: Divided Nation, Conflicted Church – God’s Word Vs. Man’s Word

Has the Church Lost its Influence? We live in a nation divided across political, racial, cultural, and even religious lines. Can the church regain a position of influence among young people seeking “truth” while rejecting God’s Word? What, if anything, will be able to bridge these profoundly personal and ideological positions?

The Bible says a kingdom, nation, or house divided against itself cannot stand (Mark 3:24-25). There are many serious problems in our churches and country, so what can we do at this point? Ken Ham is with us today to address these issues.

Alex McFarland: The Assault on God, Family, Morality, America

California just made it illegal for boy’s and girl’s toys to be separated. Departments must be gender neutral. Our culture is saying you can’t change behavior but you can change your biology. That’s the complete opposite of the truth! You can change behavior, not biology. This is what happens when a culture rejects God. “Although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened” (Romans 1:21).
