Abortion

What is Behind the Modern Liberal Curtain?

When you watch a movie with great special effects, what you see looks amazing (Buildings exploding, giant dinosaurs, super heroes flying). But when you look behind the curtain so to speak, and see how computer generated imaging produces these effects, the magic wears off and you realize it is all fantasy and illusion.

Today, we look at the hard core progressive movement in our nation and how it is built on contradiction and illusion, but sadly most Americans never take the time to look at what is actually going on or where we are being led.  And this same deceit might just be infecting the very church you attend every Sunday.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio is an authority on the real agenda and thought process of the hardcore Left joins us to help us take a peek behind the curtain of illusion that is modern Liberalism.

 

Quote from John Loeffler:

Are we going to be a free society with the rights guaranteed under the Constitution of speech and religion and press and property – all of which have been under siege by judicial activism for the last 50 years – or will we go careening forward into some kind of oligarchic, progressive, socialistic dictatorship that we know from countries around the world that always fails with economic and social collapse?

 

We discuss the difference between Left and Liberal, the contradictions within the very thinking of progressives, the long-term effects of the transgender movement and gender-fluid conditioning, and the failure of many churches to stand for the inerrancy of Scripture and biblical morality.

No Comment or Question Off Limits

So many controversial issues and debates, so little time! Here’s what listeners want to discuss today:

  • To what level can a Christian be depressed?

  • How much does our faith play into our emotional and mental health, and how much depends on trusting God?

  • I know spiritual warfare is real because we are warned many times about it in the New Testament, but to what extent can demons influence Christians?

  • My strong hunch is that a majority of Americans have bought the lies and accusations about Justice Kavanaugh because they no longer think logically.

  • What do you think the greater problem in most churches is – ignorance in the pulpit or cowardice?

  • Didn’t know how extensive the Burning Man movement has become. It seems like a combination of New Age, humanism, environmentalism, and a combo of religions: can you please boil this ideology down so it’s easier to understand?

  • With all the division and spiritual confusion in the church, it’s no wonder many young people want nothing to do with Christianity today.

  • I’m a newer Christian, could you please explain Replacement Theology? Is it a salvation issue?

  • Hillsong’s stance on issues such as evolution, homosexuality, and seeker-friendly movement are concerning to the Australian Council of Churches. Hillsong produced some wonderful music, but as a whole they seem to have exchanged traditional, historical Christian doctrines to seek fame and fortune.

  • I’m a former Catholic and know some good Roman Catholic friends, even though many of their Church doctrines are unbiblical: can a Catholic go to heaven if they remain in that Church?

Delusion, Illusion & Spiritual Warfare

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.

 

DISCUSSION

  • The U.S. Senate confirmation hearings of newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice, Brett Kavanaugh

  • Speculation on the upcoming national elections in November

  • The Palmyra Arch (Baal) reconstructed in Washington D.C. on the National Mall

  • How dangerous is the precedent now set that the left is willing to deny an accused person due process

  • What is the proper balance between taking allegations of sexual assault seriously and hearing women brave enough to come forward – and protecting those who are accused, constitutionally, and the rule of law?

Voting in Wisconsin; Welcoming Baal to Washington D.C.

There is always a certain arrogance to our sin.  And the greater the  pride or arrogance, the greater the sin.  America, founded on Judeo-Christian principles and values, is rapidly turning away from God in her arrogance, symbolized best by our very own government and the nation’s capitol in Washington D.C.

America’s defiance of God has now reached a new level as a replica of the Arch of Baal has taken up residence on the National Mall of Washington D.C.—and lawmakers republican and Democrat alike are giddy about it.  We’ll cover the story in our second segment today. In segment three, we’ll continue our look at the Barna Research study from 2017 that reveals exactly what professed born-again believers actually believe about God and the Bible.

In our first segment we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action and Council. There is so much to talk about including the upcoming state and national elections and how we can cut through the noise of all the TV ads, mailings, and social media nonsense.

Kavanaugh Confirmation: Concerning Considerations

No matter how this Kavanaugh nomination ends, it will have an impact on our politics and our culture for years to come. That should concern us. As Christians, our concerns in this and everything else, should be viewed through the filter of God’s Word and taken to Him in prayer. In doing so, we can at a minimum help those in our direct sphere of influence and perhaps even impact the larger culture.

Trump Administration Cancels FDA’s Aborted Baby Parts Contract

Arch of Baal erected in DC to pagans’ delight

The author of the bestsellers, The Harbinger and The Paradigm, noted how moral relativism – also known as secular humanism – has its roots in false gods such as Baal.

“Once you create your own god, you can create your own truth,” Cahn pointed out. “Once you create your own truth, you can overrule everything, call good evil and evil good. … Idolatry is linked to relativism, because you’re creating truths. Once you change your gods, everything else changes. It starts with that.”

“When you look at this beautiful Arch, we are seeing through the eyes of ancient civilizations, and to have it right here – set against the classical columns of the Capitol – is really extraordinary,” Eliot Engel (D-NY) proclaimed when unveiling the reconstructed arch, which was carved from the same Egyptian marble as the original structure. “The thugs of ISIS destroyed the physical arch, but we will not and never allow them to take that profoundly important piece of human history away from us, away from the people of Syria, away from anyone.”

Countering Culture & Defining 'Born-Again' Christian

Words are meaningless without clear definitions.  When we misrepresent the meanings and definitions of important words God uses in Scripture, all sorts of problems result including professing Christians being either ignorant or deceived.

This morning Mike and David look at eye-opening Barna Research from 2017 that shows the deeply-held beliefs of those who profess to be born-again Christians. We will compare what people believe to what the Bible teaches us about God and the Christian worldview. The results range from interesting to staggering.

In our first segment we check in with Tina Marie Griffin, Counter Culture Mom, to look the ways secular culture, Hollywood, and television are poisoning and destroying the morality of our children.

Our discussion with Tina included:

  • Good news if you’re a pro-family conservative: Last Man Standing starring Tim Allen is back, this time on FOX and the season premiere had over 8 million viewers – which is higher than its final season on ABC (6.4 million). What does this tell us?

  • There are TWO more concerning Netflix shows, Satanic series, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Netflix Mocks Christianity With Girls Singing Sexual Hymn ‘Sweet Jesus Inside Me’ – I saw the video and it’s both sad and disturbing.

  • The nation’s libraries are hosting more Drag Queen Story Hours for Children – and some Communities are pushing back: Listener warning: maybe the vilest show, let us emphasize, ANIMATED show for kids about sex, perversion, and puberty – it’s called “Big Mouth.” This reveals how low American television viewers have fallen because it got picked up for a second season!

Swimming in a Cesspool & Thinking We’re Clean

Our nation, not to mention the entire world, is in deeper trouble every passing day.  Moral boundaries and clear lines that used to delineate right from wrong have become blurred and minimized; they are now moving targets that have no basis in the consistent moral standards of God’s Word.  Instead, in our ill-fated attempts to make this a better world, we impose constantly changing human standards on society and individuals: standards that change from year to year ushering confusion and intellectual paralysis.

And in the midst of this increasingly confused and evil world are a group of people called born-again Christians.  And these peculiar people are forced to live in a world that contradicts everything they know and believe. We are to love others  around us but not love what this world stands for.

Dave Wager of Nicolet Bible Institute and Silver Birch Ranch joins us to discuss how true Christians navigate life in a world that opposes God more with each passing year.

Listener's Show: Your Comments and Questions

Here are some of the topics addressed today and questions our listeners asked:

  • Could you please expand the discussion a little more on the Parable of the Sower/Seed mentioned last week?

  • What does the expression, “the issue is never the issue” mean?

  • Not sure I agree this nation is trending conservative than it appears in culture and politics

  • How can any Democrat Christian continue to vote for their party after the disgusting display in the Senate hearings on Justice Brett Kavanaugh?

  • It’s hard to believe Bill Hybels and Willow Creek Church promoted hyper-progressives such as Corey Booker as examples of good leadership.

  • Please elaborate on yesterday’s discussion about the agreement between the Vatican and Communist China, and is this where the Christian Church in America could be headed?

  • I think the Roman Catholic Church will be joined by the Protestant and Evangelical churches coming together under the guise of “unity” to form the one-world religion that will support Anti-Christ.

  • Why are the books of Maccabees in the Catholic Bible but not in the Protestant Bible?

  • What on earth is with the Burning Man festival about other than a mix of New Age, humanism, environmentalism, occult, and a blending of a few other religions?

  • With America’s foundations of God, truth, creation, and the Constitution crumbling, it is no wonder young people want nothing to do with today’s splintered Christian church.

The War on Truth, Facts and Reason

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.”

Questions and Comments from Listeners

Rather than list many of the questions and comments this week, let’s sum them up this way:

Comments and questions discussed on today’s podcast include an overwhelming response to the current Willow Creek Church/Bill Hybels scandal. Over all listeners who sent in questions or comments on the issue, over 90% are opposed to the Willow Creek Association and Global Leadership Summit, and many have addressed their concerns with their pastor.

Some have already left their churches if it continued to be a part of the Willow Creek Association, while others plan to ask their pastor about it to see how they justify partnering with an organization having so many unbiblical approaches and teachings. In our experience, when confronted about WC, most church leaders double down and refuse to acknowledge the problems.

A few listeners mentioned politics and the fiasco the Senate hearings have become regarding Supreme Court nominee, Bret Kavanaugh. Someone also brought up the difference between being a Christian and a conservative which are often used interchangeably.

Another Christian couple wants to know how to strike a healthy, biblical balance in the home as campaign season is already upon us. One spouse is more active politically wanting to be salt and light in culture and the other just wants to pray and vote as God leads without getting immersed or frustrated with the political process.

The others we had time for today mentioned the importance of believers knowing and appreciating the Old Testament. Also, a new believer who asked about the parable of the Sower in Mark chapter 4 and does it refute the “once saved always saved” doctrine.

Are we Medicating Ourselves into an Intellectual Coma?

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?

WALSH: We Have Turned Childhood Into A Mental Disorder. And It’s Ruining Our Kids

According to a report, there has been a dramatic rise in children misusing and overdosing on ADHD medications. I happened to see that report a day after I read another study revealing an increased risk for obesity and diabetes in kids who take ADHD meds. This is not to be confused with the recent research showing that ADHD drugs could be linked to brittle bones. These must all be added, of course, to the cacophony of already known side effects, including insomnia, irritability, decreased appetite, depression, and suicidal thoughts.

Maybe this is why a majority of kids diagnosed with ADHD wind up developing other mental illnesses as they grow older. Pharmaceutical companies cite that latter detail as proof of the biological basis of ADHD. I think it is much easier to see it as proof of the pharmacological basis for the mysterious rise in mental illnesses across America. Drug companies and the psychiatric industry have so far gotten almost 20 percent of the country onto psychiatric drugs. Many of these drugs cause suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and depression. Meanwhile, a lot of Americans are having suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and depression. One need not be a detective to notice a potential causal relationship here.

All the Cool Girls are Transitioning: An Epidemic of Teenage Gender Confusion

The Economist recently reported a flood of adolescent girls seeking treatment for gender dysphoria over the last eight years. In 2009, less than half—41  percent—of teens walking through the doors of gender clinics in the U.K. were female. But by 2017, that number jumped to almost 70 percent.

Now, if gender dysphoria—feeling yourself to be the opposite gender from your biological sex—were actually something innate to the human condition as trans activists claim, we’d expect these numbers to remain consistent and roughly balanced between boys and girls. But they’re not.

Valentines Spark Federal Lawsuit for Free Speech

Chelsea Clinton Says Overturning Roe v. Wade Would Be ‘Unchristian’

Chelsea Clinton continued her public opposition to Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh last week, this time saying that rolling back abortion rights would be “unconscionable” and “unchristian.”

…“That’s unconscionable to me, and also, and I’m sure that this will unleash another wave of hate in my direction, but as a deeply religious person, it’s also unchristian to me.”

Clinton’s “wave of hate” comments refer to the backlash she recently faced after advocating an economic argument for abortion. She told a crowd at a “Rise up for Roe” event in New York that women entering the workforce because they have access to abortion likely added 3.5 trillion dollars to the economy.

The Prayer of a Red Letter Christian

Have you ever wondered how members of the “Red Letter Christians” pray when they gather together?  How do you pray to God when you believe He cares more about social justice and immigration than he does the eternal souls of men?  This morning, Mike and David will share the opening prayers cited at the Red Letter Christian “Lynchburg Revival.” See if you can spot anything missing.

Mike and David will also discuss the danger of the #MeToo Movement combining with politics and activism. Abortion is just one of the hot-button issues and the Left thinks nothing of destroying its opponents just to make sure they can go on eliminating the lives of innocent children in the womb.

In our first segment, Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach joins the program as he prepares to attend the Parliament of World Religions in Canada in November.

15 Biblical People You Need to Know

Mike and David welcome back to the program, Pastor Randy White, as he shares some fascinating insights about people in the Bible that we may not be aware of. By the way, the list of 15 people we need to know includes saints, sinners, judges, a prostitute, and the world’s first humanist and advocate for a one world government. Check out the podcast!

Segment 3: In their passion to block another conservative Supreme Court Justice who is pro-life, Senate Democrats brought in a female Methodist Church pastor to testify against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. It is understandable that Americans are divided on Supreme Court nominees, but Christians should not be. It is heresy to claim Jesus would support a woman’s right to abort her child because, “Jesus would advocate for a just society that allows people to live their lives to the fullest.” Apparently that advocacy does not apply to the life of the child hanging in the balance in a mother’s womb. And of course her opinion is backed up by twisting the words of Jesus to say something that was not intended at all.

 

Jesus Would Support Abortion-Causing Devices, Pastor Tells Senate

Alicia Baker, a Free Methodist Church pastor from Indiana, urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to block the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court in part due to a dissenting opinion he wrote in 2015. In that opinion, Kavanaugh asserted that he would grant exemptions to religious organizations in Obamacare and allow them to decline coverage of drugs and devices that can cause abortions post-fertilization.

Baker stated:

“Jesus directs us to advocate for a just society that allows people to live their lives to the fullest; In John 10:10, Jesus says, ‘I have come that you might have life, and have it to the full.’ In this passage, Jesus is not referring merely to personal salvation; He also intends for us to seek justice for the poor and the oppressed here on Earth. …“And this means,” Baker added, “supporting access to affordable birth control, because by permitting individuals to plan if, whether, and when to become pregnant, birth control allows us to live our fullest lives.”

 

Wow. This is one reason Christians are confused about the issue of abortion. Lots of pastors and church leaders either do not at all mention abortion or they justify it under the guise of women’s health and privacy. I’ve even heard the ridiculous wording, “reproductive justice.” This woman is yet another imposter who is not accurately handling the word of God. (2 Tim. 2:15)

The Pressure to Conform

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.

 

On today’s culture update, our Talking Points include:

  • An update from Tina on the Save A Nation Tour

  • Angela Zatopek from Houston, TX went on a reality TV show and was told she is not a “modern woman” because she is a virgin and planning to stay pure prior to marriage one day

  • Tina recently shared a segment by conservative author and commentator, Michelle Malkin about data mining on students.

  • The sad but massive influence godless celebrities such as Ariana Grande have on young girls, (yes, this includes young CHRISTIAN girls). We discuss her mocking of Jesus and promotion of her song about God being a woman.

  • There are always concerns about video gaming and related sites, but the latest dangers warned about involve a site called, “Stream,” and another game called “Momo” has led to a few teen suicides.

  • Texas billboard promoting abortion and targeting black babies

The Foolishness of the Cross

1 Corinthians 1:18 tells us the message of the cross is “foolishness” to those who are perishing.  Bub the Bible also teaches the fool is a person who says in their heart ‘there is no God.’ (Psalm 14:1) And we who share the gospel of salvation are increasingly seen as fools for our beliefs and our passion to see the lost come to saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Our special guest, Ray Comfort of Living Waters knows well the accusations of “fool” that the world throws at those who share the good news, and he has produced a movie about it titled “The Fool” and he joins us in the second segment to discuss his new movie. You’ll enjoy the story behind it!

Mike and David also look at the growing culture of death in our society in two articles.  First, the seduction of cultural relativism and justifying murder (wait ’till you hear this), or perhaps we should call it human sacrifice. Then, we discuss – like mother like daughter – Chelsea Clinton justify abortion and claiming Roe v Wade helped women add 3.5 trillion dollars to the economy. Yes, she said that.

For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written,

“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And the cleverness of the clever I will set aside.”

20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

Who is Influencing Whom?

The Church should be full of salt, preserving culture, providing flavor, and being a positive influence in secular society.  Instead, by any measurable standard, immorality is increasing and secular culture is infiltrating and influencing the church in part by creating division and deceiving many.  Whether out of ignorance, fear, or heartfelt but compassion, more congregants as well as church leaders are embracing secular principles and beliefs in the hopes of attracting the world.

Today, Mike and David look at several news stories addressing this subject, including the ongoing controversy at Willow Creek Church as it prepares for its Global Leadership Summit. We also discuss a survey revealing the majority of Christians think God wants them to prosper financially, and the author of ‘The Shack’ claims unbelievers can still be saved even after they die.

Willow Creek Teaching Pastor Resigns over New Allegations against Bill Hybels

New allegations surfaced Sunday against Bill Hybels, founding pastor of Willow Creek Church, leading his successor to announce his resignation. Steve Carter, teaching pastor at the Chicago-based megachurch, announced his resignation on his blog, saying that he can no longer lead the church in light of its earlier responses to the allegations against Hybels.

Hybels stepped down earlier this year after multiple women reported instances of sexual harassment and misconduct. Carter said in his resignation, “The new facts and allegations that came to light this morning are horrifying,”

He went on to explain that he was troubled by the initial response of the church’s elders. Then, their ongoing response did not align with what he believed the church should do. After many conversations with them, he was that there was a “fundamental difference” between his perception of how the church should handle the allegations and that of the elders.

Heather Larson continues to serve as the executive pastor at Willow Creek.

God and his ‘cash back’ bonus

According to a survey conducted by LifeWay Research last year, nearly seven in ten Protestant church attenders (69%) believe God wants them to prosper financially. Nearly four in ten (38%) say their church teaches that God will return blessings to them if they give more money to their church or other charities. A solid one-fourth (26%) agree that to receive material blessings from God, they “have to do something for God.”

…Christian apologist and lecturer Dr. Alex McFarland says that’s not what the Bible says. In fact, he argues it’s a heretical teaching that focuses the Christian’s attention on the gift, not the giver.

“If there’s anything that is very often an obstacle to holiness and to being conformed to the image of Christ, it’s money,” he observes, then asks: “Why would God want to make sure every Christian’s life is filled with that thing that may be the most serious obstacle to Christ-likeness?”

Worship the same deity? Don’t believe it, says American Pastors Network

The APN leader [Sam Rohrer] says it cannot be overstated that the Church must not be complicit in this concerted effort to undermine and make irrelevant the Christian faith and an unwavering belief and truth in Christ Jesus. Toward that end, he’s spearheading an effort to educate Christians about the rise of Islam in America – and that includes answering questions he contends many believers may be fearful or too intimidated to ask.

“Americans generally do not know what Islam is really all about,” he explains. “It’s a political system; it’s a way of life that happens to hijack on the back of a faith. They don’t know that. And most people – and the church in America, in particular – are asleep relative to how Islam and those who promoting it are finding its way into the Church in America.”


Denying God’s Word & Science to Promote Chaos

One definition of insanity you sometimes hear is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. But another definition could be “a refusal to accept reality.”  No matter what facts or truth is presented, the person refuses to accept them and continues to insist he is right even despite irrefutable evidence.  This seems to define radical liberalism in our nation.

The evidence supporting life is clear in God’s Word and true science with each passing year proves life begins much earlier than previously thought.  And on the issue of “gender dysphoria,” science continues to confirm the truth given to us in God’s Word: gender is assigned at conception and there is nothing man can do to change that.

No amount of truth seems sufficient for far left liberals bent on enforcing their agenda of godlessness.  Today we look at a few more stories about radical views and arguments disconnected from truth and reality. We check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council.

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.

Listener Comments & Questions

These are some of your comments and questions we discuss today on air:

  • Should Every Christian be mature enough to be a teacher of the God’s Word?

  • What happens when a youth pastor uses games, entertainment, and get kids to “relate” to each other rather than teach the Bible or spiritual doctrines?

  • A brand new born-again believer in Christ asks for advice on her new life

  • Are some men more gifted spiritually than others?

  • The pattern of “positive preaching” rather than expository teaching in many churches today

  • A pastor writes us about feeling the pressure to put on a face that everything is wonderful in his life

  • If a person continues to be tempted and occasionally fall into sin, are they truly born-again?

  • Was Muhammad (Islam) influenced by the heresy of Arianism?

  • Are people waking up to the hypocrisy and hatred of today’s liberal leaders?

  • The fall of Willow Creek church leader Bill Hybels

  • Do some Christian leaders avoid controversial issues because they are either not informed or are they afraid they might lose members, tithes, or popularity?

Problem-Free Lives & Perfect Churches

One of the biggest reasons people object to God and the Christian faith is the fact He allows evil and suffering in this world. Many interpret His sovereignty as a lack of care for His creation. This can present a challenge when sharing the gospel, especially on college campuses where young people already have wrong beliefs about Christianity due to the godless culture and education system today.

In our first segment, we’re blessed to have first time guest, Lori Peters, of Ratio Christi ministries. Lori and her husband, Kevin live in New Hampshire and answered God’s call to apologetics ministry.  Lori attended Luther Rice University to earn a Master of Divinity in Apologetics, and is currently pursuing a PhD in Theology at Liberty University.  She now serves as the Ratio Christi Chapter Director at the University of New Hampshire.

Today’s topics include evil and suffering, apologetics, a pro-life film about Roe v. Wade, and some of the reasons people consider changing churches.

Ratio Christi College Prep is a resource for the local church that trains and equips high school students to defend and share the Christian faith. As RC ministers every week to college students, we know the challenges to the faith of young believers and we know how to help the church prepare their students for such an environment. We help the church train their students by providing resources, training, an apologetics community, and a model for high school ministry.
