All across North America, Christian churches have unknowingly encouraged occult beliefs and practices far removed from what the Bible teaches. This unfortunate reality is intrinsically linked to the popularity increase of New Age spirituality in the twenty-first century, and we’ve been so influenced by its integration into our society that we have become blind to recognizing, and preventing, the effects of this mainstream, pop-culture heresy, even within the walls of God’s house.
Today’s guest is former New Ager, Steven Bancarz, founder of the apologetics website, Reasons for Jesus, and co-author of the best-selling book The Second Coming of the New Age.Read More
It would be a tragic mistake to think that the seismic lurch to the far left by radical politic leaders in our nation is either temporary, isolated or without spiritual motivation. Rather than a political movement, radical Liberalism is part of a movement bent on uniting the world around global humanism, turning our backs on God. And the Word of God warns us of this tragedy as Jesus prepares to return to judge the nations.
Gary Kah of Hope For the World joins Mike and Crash today to discuss how the radical liberal movement in the U.S. is tied to godless globalism, and how Christianity is its number one threat and target.Read More
Truth only comes from God because He knows all things past, present and future, and according to His Word He is incapable of lying. And if our pursuit of truth has any genesis but God we can easily be deceived. Today we cover three stories about how facts, reality, and truth is being subjected to man’s opinions and agenda.
We look at the agenda behind the last minute attacks by liberals on Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, reiterating our ongoing concerns about movements like “MeToo” being taken too far and used as political weapons to silence opponents of the Liberal Movement.
Then we turn our attention to the professing Christian Church in America, where it seems truth is becoming a more frequent casualty of eloquent, ear-ticking mega-church pastors with their own agenda. In his apparent quest to create doubt about God’s Word, you will never guess the next attack on the Old Testament being engineered by Andy Stanley. It seems Stanley is leading to rewriting the gospel to say something like “Jesus loves you and you are going to heaven so forget about anything God said in the Old Testament…Jesus replaced all the laws.”Read More
When you are suffering from the flu, feverish with a soar throat and body aches, are these symptoms the cause of the flu or are they the effects of the flu? They are of course the effects of a virus (the true cause) that has invaded your body leading to physical illness and mild suffering. When you treat the cause you get to the root of the problem; but treating effects will not lead to a cure.
Why bring this up? It’s a key to understanding the latest crisis at Willow Creek Church. The sexual assault scandal involving former Pastor Bill Hybels and several women has led to the Elder Board announcing their resignation. A consulting team has been brought in for damage control and a reorganization plan—you know just like secular businesses and corporations do when facing an internal or PR crisis. But is the sexual scandal the cause of Willow Creek’s crisis or the effects? The fallout is an effect – and in segment 2 we will address the true cause.
In the first segment, Mike and David talk with Carl Teichrib about his upcoming book, “Game of Gods” where he did boots on the ground’ research at Burning Man festival. Carl documents the strange, popular movement combining earth worship, pagan rituals, anarchy and spiritual oneness—all under the guise of “radical tolerance.” And while it might be easy to dismiss what you will hear by calling 80,000 followers goofy nuts, could it be part of Satan’s master plan for the world to worship Anti-Christ?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
The statistics are clear and frightening: Between 70-80% of young professing Christians walk away from their Christian upbringing as they enter College. There are certainly many factors that play into this sad situation: Public Education; a media sold out to humanism and godlessness; Hollywood and an entertainment industry appealing to sex and violence. So what can we as committed Christians do about it?
This morning we continue our look at the sad story of Michael and Lisa Gungor, once rising stars in Christian music until Michael renounced his belief in God and the Bible. They were living a lie. They admitted many times they felt they couldn’t even read God’s word anymore. Lisa says that one of the reasons they strayed into doubt and unbelief was they were afraid to ask questions at church and admit their doubts.
Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute has been a teacher for more than 35 years and he shares his thoughts as to how we can reach young people and address their questions.Read More
Almost everyone believes or at least acknowledges that Jesus is a real person who once walked the earth. The historical evidence clearly points to that fact. And most will say that he was an influential man or good teacher. Hundreds of millions, especially in America, claim they are Christians or claim to “believe in Him” as the means to salvation and eternal life. But ask 100 people what they actually believe about His nature, word, and character and you might get 90 different answers. Even within those who profess to be Christians you see a wide variety of opinions on the nature and character of the one who is Lord and Creator of all things.
Jesus warned His followers that false Christs would come and deceive many. If we are not diligent in the study of God’s Word we can easily be deceived by any of these false Christs. Today hundreds of millions follow a “false Christ” fabricated from a variety of ideas, sources and beliefs.
Tony Gurule of Ratio Christi Ministries has studied cults and false religions in great depth and joins us to discuss how people create a god to their liking (Fabricating Jesus) and believe in a false version of the one who died for our sins by taking the wrath of God against sin upon Himself.Read More
Universal Salvation, the false teaching that a loving God would never allow a single person to suffer in Hell, is sadly alive and well and being used by the father of lies to deceive and to lull people to sleep, thinking they will live for eternity in the presence of God. This dangerous doctrine has infiltrated Christian circles as it appeals to our flesh and especially to younger people who have not been taught the biblical truth about God’s judgment including His wrath against sin and those who reject Jesus Christ.
This false teaching comes in many names, and in our final segment we look at what is called “Cruciform Theology”.
We first visit with Pastor Carl Gallups and look at how recent events in Iran, Israel and the Middle East are pointing to the imminent rapture of the Church and the return of Jesus Christ to establish His everlasting Kingdom.Read More
Most of us have heard the term “The Emergent Church,” but how many of us can explain what it is and who is in it? How do you define something that in their own words is continually evolving?
Today we are joined by Eric Barger of Take a Stand Ministries to discuss the history and ongoing impact of progressive, emergent theology on the church in America. Has this deception become so entrenched in American Christianity that it is the new normal? And what are the dangers of this emerging theology? Where and when did it start? Check out the podcast for a refresher!Read More
It is very difficult to escape the reality that Satan’s influence is growing by leaps and bounds in the days in which we live. The rise of Islamic terrorism, a religion clearly defined as a religion of anti-christ in the bible, along with the growing hedonism all around us are clear indications that mankind has decided we do not need God, and we would prefer to do things our way. And we should not be surprised at what we see because God’s Word warned us all these things would increase in the times leading up to the Lord’s return.
America certainly has enough of its own moral and spiritual problems, but this morning we focus on events in Europe and worldwide that are preparing the way for the “New World Order” where Satan’s puppet, anti-christ, will be worshiped as the savior of humanity, and most will blindly follow up while turning their backs on the one who died on a cross so we could be reconciled to God.
Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to look at a world lining up to reject God and embrace its true enemy: The one who seeks to destroy the eternal souls of all men.Read More
We all celebrated when we thought Communism and Marxism had finally died with the destruction of the Berlin Wall and the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1989. Little did we know Marxism hadn’t died; it had only morphed into something more subtle but every bit as dangerous: the new progressive liberalism. This is tolerance and inclusiveness on steroids!
By all accounts Marxism has infiltrated our colleges and media under the nomenclature of progressivism. It’s bad enough our nation’s younger people open their arms to this dangerous deception, but a growing number of professing Christians and churches have openly embraced and promoted this system that directly contradicts most of the Bible’s teachings. On today’s program, Mike LeMay and David Fiorazo explore this dangerous movement and how it is not only being openly embraced by millions of American citizens, but by too many ‘professing’ Christians in our nation.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
