Questions, Comments, and a Call from Angry Listener

It’s Friday. There are always so many good questions and comments to get to, so her we go.

  • My daughter is 16 and wants nothing to do with church anymore, even though we raised her in church, the word, and prayer at home. She claims Christians are hypocrites and I fear she will be lost when she goes off to college.

  • I hear more Scripture in one hour on your show than I hear in a month coming from our pastor on Sundays.

  • Other than in Christ, is there any hope for our children and grandchildren to have a good life in such a dark culture driven by a godless, postmodern education system?

  • I am a “classical liberal” (not modern) but the primary reasons I vote for Republicans is they are pro-life and support free market capitalism.

  • Over the last several decades, we have been informed of how anti-Christian the progressive public schools are and that our children are being indoctrinated. Why is this not a bigger issue that Christians still send their children to such a hostile environment to be “educated”?

  • I am disappointed by your statements regarding the Ford/Kavanaugh allegations. You assume Kavanaugh is innocent, I believe Dr. Ford. Three people know the truth: Ford, Kavanaugh, and God.

  • The left doesn’t even know what “civil” means anymore. Their fruit is the opposite of truth: double-speak, hypocrisy, and often, outright lies.

  • I am a Christian and have supported the Democrat Party all my life, but cannot do so any longer. They are willing to destroy people to gain power. I was also supporting the killing of innocent children through abortion.

  • The #MeToo movement is causing  many parents to be concerned for their sons in the future. We should raise sons of high moral character and integrity, but what about our daughters? They will be affected by this one-sided movement as well but I believe this should be a two-sided conversation in our society.

  • From that Barna survey you read, it sounds like many “professing born-again Christians’ are false converts that trusted an empty gospel of life enhancement.

  • I wish we would rethink denominations within Christianity. They seem to divide and do more damage than good, and often produce “fake Christians” – an impediment to true Christianity.

As the Battle Rages, Many Christians Opt Out

We are in a battle, but how can we successfully fight when half of the army refuses to engage and another twenty percent don’t even know what side to take? As Christians, we are likened to soldiers of Christ. The warfare in this life is very real and even more intense in the spiritual realm and yet, many believers don’t want to acknowledge the reality of this fight.

John R. W. Stott once said:

“We should not ask, ‘What is wrong with the world?’ for that diagnosis has already been given. Rather, we should ask, ‘Where is the salt and light? Where is the Church? Why are the salt and light of Jesus Christ not permeating and changing our society?’”

From the family to the church to the community and culture, Christians have been too preoccupied with earthly, temporary concerns than seeking first the kingdom of God. I realize this seems like a broad statement, but don’t you think America would look very different if true believers had been vocal and actively engaged in advancing the gospel over the last hundred years?

Today’s guest is Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council. We discuss everything from our local and state government to the transgender agenda which now includes Drag Queen story hours in our local libraries!

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.”

The Real Bullies

For all their bluster about hating bullying the far left in our nation has become the masters of bullying and intimidation.  They espouse freedom of speech and expression…as long as your views line up with their views.  We are seeing a focused targeting of free speech in our nation and the primary target is bible-believing Christians who dare oppose the left’s march toward globalism and control.

Brannon Howse, founder of World View Weekend, experienced this intimidation and bullying first hand last week.  Two scheduled conferences in Wisconsin were shut down when left-wing organizations conducted a coordinated effort to intimidate the venues that were to host Brannon’s conferences, forcing them to cancel the events at a tremendous cost.  This morning we talk with Brannon as we see this increased intimidation and bullying against Christians.

In our first segment, Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss the attacks against the Bible’s integrity and accuracy.
