New Leadership is on the Way

New Leadership is on the Way

Some Christians are concerned about the new leadership poised to take power in Washington, D.C. as a result of this week's elections.  There is legitimate concern that this new leadership will be unfriendly toward Christians and the biblical values we are called to live by each day.  The news media continues to debate if this was a "blue wave" or simply a temporary correction to the balance of power, but one thing we know for sure:  There is a powerful "wave" ascending to leadership in our nation---today's college students are the future leaders of our nation and what they are learning about God and Christianity does not bode well for our nation.  But some people called by God are interceding and influencing tomorrow's leaders in a positive way.

Jane Pantig is Co-Chapter Director at the University of California System for Ratio Christi Ministries.  Jane joins us this morning to share some of the crucial questions today's students are asking and the importance of giving them truthful, biblical answers to their questions.

Postmodernism & America’s Failed Education System

Alarming things are going on behind the scenes in public education that many parents have no idea about while many others are too busy to care. Since the 1960s, the system has flipped on its head. Political correctness and postmodernism have ruled American education to the point that by the college level, there now exists an intolerance of opposing views if students do not support liberal ideology and the progressive left. Hostility toward Christianity has been cultivated for decades as well.

Today, Mike and David welcome back a very busy, Dr. Duke Pesta, host of the new Dr. Duke Show. Also in studio, we have first time guest, Katie Petrick, Freedom Project Media contributor and co-host of the Dr. Duke Show.

From Pre-K through graduate school, the Dr. Duke Show will keep you informed about the highly politicized world of modern education, alerting you to the dangers facing our republic under God due to generations of under-educated and wrongly-educated students. You can watch the Dr. Duke Show live ‘On Demand’ every Thursday at 2 pm Central time or on Freedom Project.com.

 Babies Were Murdered, Women Were Injured, Media Yawned – by Stand Up co-host David Fiorazo

Media coverup but Gosnell Movie sheds light on Abortion, Culture of Death

The most important movie you’ve never heard of – Michelle Malkin

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was initially charged with eight counts of murder along with several of his staff at his abortion clinic. In fact, his wife and sister-in-law were charged for assisting in in botched abortions, practicing medicine without a license or covering up the actions of those who did. Unbelievably, the Grand Jury report estimates Gosnell delivered hundreds of babies alive and then had their spinal cords “snipped.”

The details in this horror story were so gruesome and the evidence so potentially damning to the pro-abortion movement, the liberal media refused to report on it. Among some of the disturbing facts, the remains of 45 babies were found by authorities at the Philly clinic, and flea-ridden cats defecated freely including in procedure rooms. Similar to Planned Parenthood (79% of their clinics are in minority neighborhoods), Gosnell preyed mostly on poor and minority women.

This is a man who collected baby feet in jars and stored murdered fetuses in clinic freezers.

On today’s podcast, we review and discuss the Gosnell movie, now in theaters.

Why Don’t We Share the Gospel More Frequently?

Jesus said, “If you love me you will obey all I command (John 14:15).”  His final command was for His followers to share the gospel and make disciples.  With few exceptions, most of us only talk about God when it is convenient or we ‘feel led’ to do so.  Why are Christians in America not more passionate about sharing the good news with those who are perishing?

Is it shyness? A desire to please man rather than God? Not wanting to offend others? Not wanting to be seen as judgmental?  Are we just too busy?  Or could the deeper reason be that we are afraid of the repercussions like we see happening to our Brothers and Sisters in China, India and around the world?

Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss our reasons for not sharing the gospel and how we can overcome our hesitancy and inconsistency.

Countering College Indoctrination

It’s no secret that the vast majority of college campuses are filled with radical liberal ideologies promoting Humanism and Marxism, and worldviews contradictory to the Bible. With each passing year, we see our young people being indoctrinated more and more into lies and false teachings that steer them and our nation away from God and biblical morality. This has been going on for decades, and as these young people assume the mantle of leadership in our nation and churches, who knows what the future might hold?

Fortunately, there are committed Christians doing what they can to help university students see the light and truth of Jesus Christ. We speak with two of those believers today, Devin and Melissa Pellew of Ratio Christi Ministries.  They are Directors at Ratio Christi’s Winthrop University Chapter, spreading the gospel on campus and helping Christian students maintain a biblical worldview through apologetics.

The Sneaky Agenda of Globalists

Some would argue that globalists are knowingly supporting Satan’s agenda for a one-world government while others argue they are simply ignorant pawns doing what they think is best for humanity.  More than likely most are simply being used by those in power because they are ignorant of God’s Word.

But the reality is Satan’s ill-fated agenda is progressing rapidly through governments, science, culture and even in professing Christianity.  The moves are often subtle, but the end-results chilling as the world will one day worship the Anti-Christ instead of the one true God.

Patrick Wood of Technocracy News is a disciple of Jesus Christ on the cutting edge of the globalist agenda.  Today he shares more news stories on how technology and world systems are slowly bringing humanity into captivity.

Big Brother is Watching and Waiting

George Orwell’s chilling novel about a futuristic state of government control and censorship seems to be unfolding right before our very eyes.  The left, infamously touting their cause as one of respect and tolerance, has shown itself mean and spiteful toward anyone who dares publicly oppose their ideology. They are now willing to intimidate those who speak out against their agenda because they know they can get away with it for the most part.

Freedom of speech is under attack in our nation and when it is finally vanquished, sharing the gospel and the Word of God as truth will be punished.  Today’s discrimination and mocking of Jesus Christ and His followers will be replaced with outright hatred and persecution.  But hey that could never happen in the land of the free and the home of the brave, could it?

Today we focus on the intensifying attacks against the Word of God and those who trust in it.  From Christian churches being vandalized to leftist politicians all but saying people who believe in the Bible shouldn’t be allowed to serve in government, the attacks are real and intensifying with each passing year. We had better wake up!

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel radio joins us to talk about the attacks on our freedom of speech and religious expression along with what he calls “The 5 Stages of Persecution.”

Christians on the Defensive


In case you haven’t noticed, the world is changing, and as the Word of God warns us, not for the better.  The blatant attacks on God’s Word and His people are increasing in frequency and severity.  Around the world, thousands of Christians are being rounded up, imprisoned and even martyred for Jesus Christ.  And here in America we are seeing increasingly open discrimination against the religious freedom and rights of Christians.

We are blessed to have two special guests on-air today as we address this issue on two fronts. In our first segment we are joined by Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute to look at increased discrimination against Christian churches, businesses and individuals—and how we can fight back. Next, we check in with Tim Chaffey of Midwest Apologetics, as we look at the importance of Christian Homeschooling as our public education system continues to deteriorate and push an anti-Christian, humanist agenda on America’s children.

Coming up: a new Wisconsin Homeschool conference near Milwaukee, April 20-21
