If Technology Becomes Our Master

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.

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.

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.

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!

Communist China: A Model for Coming Global Persecution

The nation of China is going through significant societal change, and many nations might model their way to enslave citizens and eliminate individual freedoms.  You won’t hear these stories on secular news because they are blind to how the Bible warns against the Globalist Movement, and the media seems to support the agenda.

Mike and David look at fascinating developments regarding church and state in China. Catholic Leadership in Rome has struck a deal with China that will allow the Communist leaders to, in essence, start appointing Catholic Bishops.  This merging of religion and politics would seem to fit nicely with the coming one world government and religion the Bible warns about in the final days.  We’ll also look at a brave public statement by 344 Chinese Christian pastors who are boldly standing for the gospel and telling the Communist Government publicly that their allegiance is to God and not the government.

Right off the top, Patrick Wood of Technocracy News joins the program to discuss how technology is poising to become the master of humanity rather than a servant to it.

The Real Cause Behind the Crisis at Willow Creek

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?

Is Biblical Prophecy Being Ignored in the Church?

An estimated 30-40% of the Word of God deals with prophecy:  Prophecy points Old Testament people to the coming of Jesus the Messiah, and indicates how Jesus returns one day to judge all men and establish His everlasting Kingdom.  These are the two most significant events the world will ever experience, so why is Bible Prophecy practically ignored or discounted in more and more churches?

Gary Kah of Hope For the World is a student of biblical prophecy and has researched and written about the coming one world government and religion the Bible says will happen just before the return of the Lord.  We’ll discuss the dangers of ignoring biblical prophecy along with looking at events in the Middle East that might be signalling the fulfillment of prophecy in our lifetime.

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)

Is Middle East War Knocking on the Door?

When we take our eyes off Israel and the Middle East, we tread on dangerous ground.  The Bible tells us the final days before Jesus’ return will find Israel and The Middle East front and center.  And a lot is happening there these days that the secular media is choosing to downplay, misrepresent, or ignore completely.

In Ezekiel, God says he will drag Israel’s enemies toward her to set off a great conflict, ushering in the final days.  And today we see Russia and China increasing its might and influence in the Middle East.  And we see increasingly powerful enemies like Turkey and Iran stirring up trouble against Israel.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World has studied and written about the coming One World Government and religion, and studied biblical prophecy for decades.  He joins us this morning for an important update and reminder for Christians to be about the Father’s work in these uncertain times.

Corruption, Cover-Up in Catholic Church

Chipping Away At The Foundation Of The Christian Church

The church established by Jesus Christ through the apostles will never be defeated.  That church is comprised of committed believers and disciples around the world.  But what we have come to call “church” here in America—a place of worship rather than the people who worship—is coming under a variety of attacks from various sources.

Satan is using institutions like media, public education, Hollywood, and government to conform public opinion to the values of the Left, and to bully and pressure the church into compliance or silence.  The enemy is also using our own personal pride by appealing to our flesh to get us to believe that what we think or feel is on a par with what God says in His Word.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio has been a Watchman on the Wall for several decades, warning Christians about direct as well as subtle attacks of the enemy against the church.  John joins us to look at the growing division in our nation and church, and how we can guard our hearts and our thought process against this deception.

Freedom: It Can Be Taken or Surrendered

We value our freedoms as American citizens, especially the freedom of speech and religious expression. Knowing that the Bible is the basis of our nation’s laws and morality, we also recognize without them we are no better than Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union.

In our first segment today, we talk with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, as well as new studies about the opioid crisis and significantly lower birth rates in Wisconsin.

We live in times where some would like to take our freedoms from us.  Globalists and Marxists look for every opportunity to make government god and enslave us to their standards of [im]morality.  But we can also be easily deceived into voluntarily giving up our freedoms in the name of “progress.”  We also discuss an article from the website “Technocracy” about A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) and how it is shaping the future of medical research and treatment.  The potential ramifications are chilling. Finally, Canada finds more ways to discriminate against Christians and clamp down on religious freedom.

Looking Behind the Curtain

It is easy to pursue comfort, leisure, luxury and peace in part by living in our own little bubbles, impervious to all that is happening around us.  Newsflash: the nation as well as the church in America are divided. Biblical illiteracy is rampant and true history has been rewritten, but on the surface things are good for most Americans.

Aside from the national debt, the economy is generally stable with historically low unemployment and increasing jobs every month.  But under the surface things are volatile and becoming more contentious by the day.  Because political disagreement has been replaced with vicious hate and personal attacks, many fear our nation may be on the brink of a second civil war.  The Far Left is committed to globalism and are beside themselves as President Trump continues to push his “America First” platform which includes appointing pro-life judges that might threaten the legal murder of innocent children.

Behind the scenes, elites and the establishment continue to work on the foundation of a one world government where God is dismissed and mankind elevates itself. Today we discuss the Deep State, transhumanism, end times prophecy, and a recent survey showing over 60 percent of 18-36 year-old Americans favor socialism; much higher than previous polls.

Gary Kah of Hope For the World has researched and written about the coming one world government for thirty years and joins us this morning to take a look behind the curtain at the systematic move to globalism.

Celebrating Our Independence

Millions of Americans will take a day off from work tomorrow to gather with family and friends; to cook out, relax and attend fireworks displays.  Let’s not forget millions of others have given their lives over the past two hundred and forty-two years so that we might enjoy the blessings of freedom in a Republic once established under God.  Most importantly, remember to take the time to thank our Creator for the freedoms we enjoy under the Constitution that was established.

Sadly however, this time of celebration is tempered by real threats to our freedom of speech as we see hateful rhetoric ramping up due in part to liberal activists and radicals who hate Christ, the truth, and what America represents.

Elijah Abraham has lived in Iraq under an oppressive dictatorship. He is well aware of the threats posed to our freedoms by our own government, media, universities, celebrities, and hired protestors as well as radicalized Muslims. Progressives are pushing their globalist agenda including banning expressions of the Christian faith, strict gun control, and open borders. Elijah joins us to help us understand the delicate balance of freedom and responsibility – not only as Americans, but as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Risking Your Life and Family for the Gospel

Have you ever thought about how you would react if suddenly you or your family were threatened, demanding you to deny your allegiance to Jesus Christ? And if you’re thinking to yourself, “I would never do that, no matter what,” remember the Apostle Peter said the same thing – and then cowered.

Today, Mike and David talk with a man who was confronted with that horror. Bishop Pervaiz Joseph, a Christian leader from Pakistan who had a good relationship with government leaders there. He was able to share the gospel freely until he was falsely accused of a crime, kidnapped, tortured, and his family was forced to flee to Sri Lanka and eventually to the U.S. His story became known by Voice of the Martyrs.

He started Bishop Joseph Ministries International in December 2016, a non-profit organization, working with people around the globe uplifting communities and spreading a message of Hope, Peace and Love. Joseph, along with his family moved to the United States of America after facing religious persecution in his homeland and stayed in exile for a little over four years. They now run a local Church in affiliation with the Foursquare Missions and connect, build and uplift communities around the world by organizing mission trips, conferences and seminars within various states and worldwide.

In our final segment, we look at a chilling commentary on how youth are being brainwashed and indoctrinated into socialism and atheism by social media giants like Google, Facebook and Twitter.

Family fleeing persecution in Pakistan finds new home in Rapid City

In the quiet oasis of a Rapid City church, Pervaiz Joseph on Tuesday calmly spoke of a cell, thousands of miles away, where kidnappers once tortured him for his Christian faith.

An evangelical Bishop from Pakistan, Joseph, 47, has been living in Rapid City with his wife, son, and daughter for a little more than a month. They are here because their home country has become too dangerous for them.

After years of living as refugees in Sri Lanka with their paperwork hanging in limbo, the family has successfully received asylum in the United States thanks to help from the office of U.S. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., and Pastor Kelli Patterson of Restored Life Outreach Fellowship church in Rapid City.

…[2016 was] the first year in his entire life that Joseph had been able to openly celebrate Christmas. The family decorated the exterior of their new home with strings of lights, something they would never have done in Pakistan.

A Day in the Life of a Christian pastor in Pakistan – Front Page Mag

Joseph: “In Pakistan, when someone is condemned by the Blasphemy Law, the militants do not wait for the court to take action; they decide themselves whether they want to kill the person or not… Muslim militants falsely accuse innocent Christians in charge of 295 C(Pakistan’s Blasphemy Law) sometimes to take revenge; to occupy their land/ property; to show that they are more powerful; to earn more money; to become popular among the native people; and to degrade and discriminate minorities.

They made visits to the Bishop’s Council finding me there; they said they would cut me into pieces and distribute my body parts among the Christian clergymen. Then I was called by one of the Bishops. He warned me of the situation. And many others warned me that militants wanted to burn and kill me and my family. All this harassment and blackmail caused me to go into hiding. I went into hiding because I could not make any public appearance or do ministry. Neither did my children have the freedom to go out anywhere.

SEGMENT 2 & 3

Deconstructing Young Minds – Robert Knight

A major problem for those trying to counter cultural Marxism is the leftward tilt of social media. Facebook and Twitter, plus Google and Vimeo, have been caught suppressing conservative viewpoints and boosting progressive posts and videos.

In January 2018, undercover video sting artist James O’Keefe caught several Twitter engineers explaining how conservative viewpoints are “shadow banned.”

“The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting and no one sees their content,” one explained. “So, they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it.”

Another engineer noted that because they were in liberal California, there were “unwritten rules” to suppress conservative content

William J. Federer explains, animus toward their own country and free market capitalism among many younger Americans – even Christians – is no accident but the result of a conditioning process that begins in the elementary and secondary schools and goes into overdrive in universities.

“There is actually a socialist-communist tactic called ‘deconstruction,’ where you separate a people from their past, get them into a neutral position where they do not remember where they came from, then you can easily brainwash them into whatever future you have planned for them…

Next, the intolerant Southern Poverty Law Center is at it again, labeling Christian ministries as “hate groups.”

Poof! SPLC sets rules at Amazon

Is There Really a Shadow Government in Our Nation?

There will always be conspiracy theories.  Back in the 1960s there was talk of a “shadow government” that really set the agenda and pulled the strings of government officials, doing the bidding of power hungry globalists.  Those theories were widely dismissed.

But is the ‘Shadow Government” a reality, and if so, what would it mean for Christians in America?  Could it threaten our freedom to worship God and share His Word?  Could it one day force us to worship government instead of God, like in Marxist nations?

Author and Pastor Carl Gallups joins us to share his research and thoughts.  We also discuss the historic Summit where President Trump met with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Plus, we touch on the strange journey of Pastor Andy Stanley, who has said increasingly provocative things about the Bible over the past couple years. Has Stanley left the camp of solid Evangelical Christianity?

On the Brink of Cataclysmic Change?

You would be hard pressed to remember a time when world leaders faced such a series of important decisions that could lead to world wide war or calamity. Here are just a few things to consider: increased attacks against Israel by Hamas, an Iranian regime developing nuclear weapons; Russia is entrenched in Syria with an eye on Israel; Islam is sweeping across Europe and Asia; and Western nations are arguing about trade and tariffs which could lead to economic turmoil.

All of this is set against the background of Bible prophecy and is happening at a time when the ‘professing’ Christian Church in America and Europe seems to be floundering due in part to apathy, heresy, and an ecumenical movement that puts unity and peace above truth.

This week, a crucial summit is taking place between President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un spurred on by the president’s tough rhetoric against North Korea. Without God’s word as our anchor of hope, we could easily get depressed. But His word is truth and His promises everlasting.  Gary Kah of Hope For the World has studied and written about the coming one world government and religion, and joins us to put all this into proper context and perspective.

Courageously Standing With Israel

Today Israel marks the seventieth anniversary of its rebirth as a nation, a biblical prophecy from thousands of years ago fulfilled in 1948.  President Trump and the United States are marking the anniversary by officially moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the long-standing capital of Israel, against opposition from almost the entire world.

Many believe this will incite Muslim nations to attack Israel with the greatest severity since the 1973 war, and that it could quickly spread to a major regional or even world war.  Iran’s growing influence, the rise of Turkey as a radical Muslim power, and the strong presence of Russia in the Middle East all point to a potentially serious conflict.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Views and host of Understanding the Times Radio joins us this morning to discuss this significant anniversary in Israel’s history and discuss what might lie ahead.

In our final segment we talk with Wisconsin State Representative Andre Jacque and discuss local politics as well as the groundbreaking pro-life legislation recently signed into law in Iowa. We get an insider’s perspective today and remind people of the special Wisconsin Senate election tomorrow.

 

SCRIPTURES

For You formed my inward parts;
You wove me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works,
And my soul knows it very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth;
16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance;
And in Your book were all written
The days that were ordained for me,
When as yet there was not one of them. Psalm 139:13-16

 

Now the Lord said to Abram,

“Go forth from your country,
And from your relatives
And from your father’s house,
To the land which I will show you;
2 And I will make you a great nation,
And I will bless you,
And make your name great;
And so you shall be a blessing;
3 And I will bless those who bless you,
And the one who curses you I will curse.
And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.” Genesis 12:1-3
