Colorado baker Jack Phillips is speaking up about the most recent case that has once again put him at the center of controversy. The same baker rose to fame years ago during the Supreme Court case that he won after refusing to bake a cake for a wedding for a same-sex couple. This time, he is being targeted for refusing to create a cake celebrating gender transition because he says that it violates his religious beliefs.Read More
Our lives in the U.S. have changed, and hopefully this will be temporary, but from state to state, decisions are being made regarding public gatherings and how to do business. Let’s talk openly and honestly as Christians about faith vs fear, and let’s consider how to respond in these trying times. Be informed, not alarmed. Trust the Lord, take precautions, and leave the results to Him.Read More
God forewarned us in the Bible. We’re now seeing Romans 1 and 2 Timothy 3 being played out in America and the world today. Evil is being called good and many are falling for deception and delusions. The reprobate mind contrasts the mind of Christ, and there is a war on the truth of Christ, on His word, and on His creation.
One of those battles heating up in our culture is over sex and gender identity. Joe Biden recently declared, “Transgender equality is the civil rights issue of our time.” Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform to the world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
Today, David and Crash catch up with some recent news stories that sadly reflect the moral decay of American society. But we need to be reminded that Jesus is Lord and God and He is our unshakable hope in times of cultural chaos. There’s ‘nothing new under the sun’ and God is still sovereign. He is not surprised by the wickedness in the hearts of mankind and the decline of America.Read More
Pastor Carl Gallups joins Mike and David to discuss an article from the Christian Post speculating on what healthy American Churches will look like ten years from now. We start our discussion on this topic assuming we will not yet face open persecution for our Christian beliefs ten years from now. What kind of changes will we see in strong Christian churches in America?Read More
For those who haven’t heard, June is Gay Pride month. The LGBTQ+ community and their allies are out in full force in American culture in the hopes of making converts to moral relativism and justifying unbilical lifestyles. From rainbow flags outside buildings across social media to multicolored decorations adorning your favorite shops and brands, it seems that the majority is celebrating.
But what exactly are they celebrating and how should a Christian respond to Pride month? How can we present truth in love and with grace without offending? That’s a tall order, but we must obey God rather than man. We must prepare Christians to defend the faith and to speak the truth in love because ultimately, we want to build bridges to share the Gospel, not win arguments. When we are both compassionate and rational, our approach tends to be more thoughtful.Read More
Where’s our common sense? Doesn’t this attract pedophiles, child molesters and rapists? Why are so many adults just going along with all this? Evil is being called good.
Some of us saw this coming years ago, but how did we get to the point of openly sexualizing innocent children – and promoting it as acceptable? Things that were once unthinkable have become mainstream.Read More
It is interesting how two people can view the same exact facts and evidence, yet come to two completely different conclusions based on those facts. Born-again believers look at the wonders of this world and the created universe completely convinced it was all crafted by an amazing God. But atheists and skeptics look at the same evidence and facts and conclude that it all happened out of random chance and chaos.
As the world started introducing ideas such as free sexual expression in the 1960s and gender fluidity in the 2000s, they touted the benefits of experimentation while we as born-again believers saw serious dangers. In our final, segment, Mike and David will share some of the effects of this movement to see who was right.
But first, Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries joins the program to talk about how Christians can use the evidence of creation all around us to point people to the truth of God and His Word.Read More
Watch television for any length of time and you are sure to see ads for new medications promising to make your life better. And while many of these drugs have dangerous side effects, the Pharmaceutical Industry continues to make billions of dollars peddling the latest “cure” for the latest problems of life. Anti-depression medications have saturated the market and record numbers of American children are now being medicated for ADHD. Today, Mike and David discuss the dangers of over-medication and the long term effects on mental health.
On a related subject we look at two interesting, yet very sad articles that are becoming all too common in these days. First, the number of young girls struggling with “gender identity” is skyrocketing; and second, a professor in Sweden is under attack for stating something so obvious that only a fool would argue that he is wrong. Is there a connection between over medication and the intellectual insanity permeating every aspect of society?Read More
Children of this younger generation face enormous pressures to conform to the ways of this world that many of us never imagined or had to deal with. They are being taught that at the very least they should be accepting of any and all behaviors, lifestyles, and morals, and even approve of anything but Christ (ABC). In many cases, they are being pressured to conform to unhealthy lifestyles or be ostracized and labeled a hater and bigot.
Today, Mike and David look at more studies that have come out documenting this pressure to conform to the world – along with a few scientific studies pointing out the dangers of gender dysphoria and the media’s attempts to hide the findings from the public by reporting an extremely unbalanced (LGBTQ-approving) side of these stories.
Joining us to discuss this increasing pressure on young people is Tina Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, a conservative Christian activist who helps parents guard their children against the deceptions and evils of this secular society.Read More

If you believe Jesus is Lord, the Bible is God’s Word, and people need to repent of their sins, you will be canceled – that is, IF they know you’re a Christian and if you speak the truth publicly. This includes the remnant of true Christian churches, everyday citizens, and especially pro-life organizations. If you resist Rona virus fear-mongering or have concerns about vaccines and overreaching mandates, you’re on the list!Read More
