We The People Elect Our Leaders

We The People Elect Our Leaders

The Apostle Paul makes it clear that we are to honor and obey governmental authorities in our lives, as long as their orders do not contradict what the Bible teaches.  In America we are blessed because we get to choose our leaders, the "Caesars" we are to submit to.  Tomorrow (Tuesday) Americans will elect our government leaders for the next two years, and their motives for voting will be worldly.  But as Christians, we are held to a higher standard.  We should be electing leaders whose values and beliefs most align with God's Word on moral and spiritual issues like abortion, marriage, family, freedom, sexuality and gender. Our religious freedoms to openly profess and share our convictions continue to be on the line depending the outcome of this election. 

Radical Progressives have made it clear that Christians are to be seen but not heard.  In our final segments, we look at news stories that show just how intense the pressure is becoming on Christians to withdraw from the public arena. But first we check in with Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Council to discuss the choices Christians face in this election. Please note and share the vast contrast in the major political party platforms!  Also, notice each of the following nets stories reflect the increasing hostility toward Christians, the Bible.  

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.

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.

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.

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?

Same Facts, Different Conclusions

It is interesting how two people can view the same exact facts and evidence, yet come to two completely different conclusions based on those facts.  Born-again believers look at the wonders of this world and the created universe completely convinced it was all crafted by an amazing God.  But atheists and skeptics look at the same evidence and facts and conclude that it all happened out of random chance and chaos.

As the world started introducing ideas such as free sexual expression in the 1960s and gender fluidity in the 2000s, they touted the benefits of experimentation while we as born-again believers saw serious dangers.  In our final, segment, Mike and David will share some of the effects of this movement to see who was right.

But first, Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries joins the program to talk about how Christians can use the evidence of creation all around us to point people to the truth of God and His Word.

Dept. of Ed investigating alleged assault by ‘gender fluid’ boy

A public school district in Georgia is under fire after a five-year old-girl said she was sexually assaulted by a transgender student in the school restroom.

Despite a plea from parents in 2016, the public school district follows a transgender-friendly policy that allowed the male student to enter the girls’ restroom without being punished. The same policy also requires male students to be addressed by a female pronoun, and allows male students to participate in female sports team and to room with females on school trips.

Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Christiana Holcomb tells OneNewsNow that City Schools of Decatur refused to investigate the girl’s claims of assault, which is required under Title IX, and has refused to change the policy that affects approximately 5,600 students at nine schools.

“And they even refused to remove the little boy from the little girl’s classroom,” Holcomb alleges.

Parents facing incorrect pressure to affirm transition

Dr. Michelle Cretella, executive director of the American College of Pediatricians, says the “Transgender Adolescent Suicide Behavior” study can incorrectly pressure parents to put their children through radical transition-affirming therapies, when there is no proof that will prevent suicides. She says other factors must be considered.

“What I contend is that there are underlying issues that the children are dealing with that leads to depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and their gender dysphoria,” she tells OneNewsNow.

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.

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

A student has reluctantly sued her school in Wisconsin after officials told her she could not hand out valentines with Bible verses on them.

Polly Olsen has handed out valentines on Northeast Wisconsin Technical College’s campus for years to share her Christian faith. But WBAY TV reports that campus security apprehended her this Valentine’s Day, telling her she was outside approved speech zones without prior permission.

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 Onslaught of Darwinism, and Attacks on Franklin Graham

As public education increasingly replaces the truth of God’s Word with the theories of men, students are often subjected to dangerous schools of thought aimed at getting them to conform to a secular worldview. IN order to do this, they must necessarily abandon the biblical worldview. Nothing affirms this better than the way Darwinism is taught as truth rather than theory, even though science continues to confirm the Bible’s account of creation.

Tim Foutz of Ratio Christi Ministries joins us this morning to equip us with the truth to refute Darwinism and evolution, helping us prepare our children for the deception bombarding them in public education.

We also look at the continuing discrimination and persecution of anyone who professes to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. Franklin Graham, scheduled to speak at a rally of 30 Christian Churches in England, is facing fierce opposition from Muslims, government officials in England, and even from some LGBTQ affirming churches calling on the government to revoke his visa to come to England and preach.

UK: Muslims protest Franklin Graham Visit

Many churches in the U.K. go against biblical teachings on sexuality and openly embrace the homosexual lifestyle.

“Three Blackpool churches are to hold services specifically welcoming LGBT worshippers over the weekend of Franklin’s visit, and a four-meter carnival model of Jesus wearing a rainbow sash will be paraded through the town center,” Sherwood noted.

…Liberty Church Pastor Nina Parker and other local churches – which embrace the LGBT community and welcome its members to worship in their sanctuaries – agree that Graham should not be allowed in England.

“[Graham’s presence here would be] extremely destructive [and talk of his coming is] causing division between churches and within churches,” Parker insisted, according to The Guardian.

This pro-LGBT view was echoed by the Methodist Church in the U.K.

“[We] cannot support any preaching or teaching which promotes homophobia or is likely to be damaging to interfaith dialogue,” the Blackpool Methodist Circuit stated, as reported by The Guardian. “[We decline to support the festival] in the light of various comments made by Franklin Graham in the past.”

Jewish Group Says End Times Biblical Prophecy Fulfilled, Flawless ‘Red Heifer’ Could Signal the Third Temple

The Temple Institute has announced the birth of a flawless all-red heifer that could pave the way for the fulfillment of a major End Times biblical prophecy.

The reddish-colored female calf was reportedly born in Israel on August 28 and is being raised in accordance with the Jewish laws of the Torah, according to the Temple Institute.

In Jewish theology, the red heifer is essential to the rebuilding of the third Holy Temple in Jerusalem and will be needed to be sacrificed to complete the ritual of purification for the Temple.

Ordinance of the Red Heifer

Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 2 “This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, ‘Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed. 3 You shall give it to Eleazar the priest, and it shall be brought outside the camp and be slaughtered in his presence. Numbers 19:1-3

“The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean. How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God!”  Hebrews 9:13-14

Listener Comments and Questions Keep Coming

Every Friday Mike and David address whatever issue you want to discuss. Send yours to us early as the hour fills up extremely fast each week. Here we go!

  • What if we as Christian parents do everything right and our children still stray from God and the truth?

  • Gender confusion – a departure from Genesis and creation

  • The danger of open theism – wait, what the heck is “open theism”?

  • How can we respond to young people who use excuses for not going to church such as, ‘Christians are hypocrites’?

  • Should I have any concerns about Rick Warren?

  • What’s wrong with church growth and running a church like a business?

  • Why do so many pastors think they have to be so positive, loving, and encouraging without balancing out their sermons with righteousness, holiness, judgment, wrath, and repentance?

  • How do you distinguish between teachers who are heretics or those who are simply committed liberals and have wrong opinions of doctrine?

  • Does the United Church of Christ (UCC) believe in or worship a false Jesus?

  • In Revelation, what do the seven lamp stands represent?

  • What will happen to those deceived by the dangerous prosperity message when they have an economic crisis or serious trial in their lives?

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.

The Two-Edged Sword of Psychology

The field of Psychology has been booming for many decades as people try sorting out problems and understanding how to cope, all in an effort to make sense this life full of ups and downs.  At times, we all need to talk to someone to get some wise advice, but some within the field itself argue that modern Psychology does far more damage than good, and it may even be the cause of many of the problems we face these days.

One of these professionals is John Rosemond, whose credentials as a licensed Psychologist are among the best—yet John spends most of his time warning people about the dangers of Psychology. We talk with him today.

Then, in the second half of today’s podcast, we discuss a disappointing and heartbreaking article about former Christian music artists, Michael and Lisa Gungor, and how their faith in God apparently crumbled. Where are they now? What caused Michael, and eventually Lisa, to deny the truth of the full gospel? What does ‘living the way of Jesus’ rally mean when you don’t believe all of what He taught?

One thing we do know:

If our faith is not built on a solid foundation of Scripture, on the deity of Jesus and the inerrant Word of the only living God, we are headed for a fall.

“We were traveling the world and singing songs about God, and he didn’t believe any of it.” -Lisa Gungor

“I’m so grateful for the tragedy of losing faith because I think it was a necessary path. It was a path we had to be on.”

  • How do we prevent today’s youth from falling away from the Christian faith?

  • How do you know if a professing Christian artist really believes what they’re singing about?

  • How can we encourage pastors and church leaders to teach through the Bible, in context, from Genesis to Revelation?

  • How can we wake up the church to the reality of the powerful lure of culture where tolerance, open-mindedness, and emotions are looked at as the highest of virtues?

  • How do we warn others about apostasy without coming off as self-righteous?

The Importance of Biblical Apologetics

Today, we are joined by Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project to discuss the importance of solid Biblical Apologetics and the rise of the religion of “Love.” We discuss the ideas behind ‘coexist’ and ‘we are the world’ philosophies. People have favorite loves and we all may be passionate about something in our lives. But what our purpose is and what we are passionate about speaks volumes about our spiritual condition and relationship with God.

In our third segment, Mike and David look at a few interesting statements made by mega-church pastor Steven Furtick; the same pastor who did his infamous “haters” video blasting fundamental Christians.  This time, Furtick made some provocative– perhaps irresponsible–comments in a sermon about imperfect faith and doubting the Word of God.

Leading Children Into Destructive Lifestyles

The unbridled, uncivil passion of the radical left to push their worldview and indoctrinate our children is starting to reap devastating results. Recent studies show a rapid increase in destructive behaviors among teens who are embracing the LGBTQ propaganda, and some of the decisions they are making will have lifelong negative effects. Ideas have consequences.

Linda Harvey of Mission America joins us to discuss these dangerous trends and how we can combat them with truth, love, facts, and respectful disagreement.

We also look at the story of President Trump’s Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, being kicked out of a Virginia restaurant she hoped to dine in because her mere presence was causing LGBTQ restaurant employees to trigger.  We’re not making this up! Apparently, it may be the new battle front of the Left.

CDC Survey: More American Youth Identify as Homosexuals

America is doing a terrific job of pushing homosexuality in schools, and as a result, more of our kids are engaging in this behavior and adopting the identity.

A major Centers for Disease Control (CDC) study provides the gruesome stats.

This disastrous news should be major media headlines. A few progressives are happy, I’m sure, along with radical homosexual groups like GLSEN as well as the corrupt teachers’ unions, the NEA and others.

But for most of us, the CDC Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) paints a grim picture with dire consequences for the long-term well-being of our nation’s youth.

In 2017, almost 15% (14.6%) of teens labeled themselves “gay, lesbian, bisexual or unsure.” In 2015, that figure was 11.2%.

And heterosexual students were much less likely (39.1%) to have had sexual intercourse (Table 133). Homosexual, bisexual and questioning students answered yes much more often– 76.8%.

Schools and parents should recall these results when considering pro-homosexual lessons or “comprehensive sex education” (CSE) curricula that normalize anal, oral and vaginal sex for adolescents.

The evidence shows many teens are experimenting with these behaviors. Unfortunately, the dire outcomes—teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease—are not the topics of questions in the YRBS.

Lost in the Mail: God’s Invitation to ‘Revoice Conference’

The Lord’s calendar is pretty full most of the time, but still He’s able to hear millions of prayers, lengthy petitions, meet those who are in despair, and hear joyous songs of praise, every hour of every day. So He’s probably puzzled why He has not received an invitation to the Revoice Conference. Revoice claims to be a “welcoming” conference for “celibate” people in the “LGBT community.”

But shouldn’t we ‘identify’ with Jesus Christ first and foremost, rather than identify with a sin or group?

Blowing a Big Hole into the Evolutionary Theory

As our children are wrongly taught that evolution is true and not just a theory, one natural effect is they turn away from the truth of God and His Word. When atheists and humanists allegedly discredit the biblical creation account, the logical progression is young people soon believe that the Bible cannot be trusted about anything.

On a closely related subject, have you noticed how zealous liberals and atheists are about dismantling the truth about gender roles and sexuality?  Why are they so committed to stopping anything that might question the ideology of gender fluidity, and why do they oppose any biological and scientific evidence that gender is assigned at birth and cannot be changed?

Today, Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project explains why the gender battle is so important to liberals and atheists. After all, if they lose the battle over gender, their evolutionary teachings could be exposed as fraudulent.

As secular culture turns more hostile toward God and His Word every day, secular humanists are doing all they can to make certain God’s perfect truth is no longer a part of helping people trapped in sin.  Instead, the left is encouraging people to not only agree with them, but to insist that others accept their sin as righteous. Isaiah 5:20 warns us about calling evil good.

The city of Milwaukee recently passed an ordinance that bans so-called “conversion therapy” for minors struggling with homosexuality or gender issues, but many pastors in the community are uniting to fight the proposed ordinance. We also discuss a California Supreme Court decision that actually reverses a CA law that approved assisted suicide, and the Supreme Court decision regarding sports betting (gambling) leaving it up to each state whether or not to legalize betting on sports.

Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action is in studio today to discuss these issues along with why so many people are ignorant or uninformed about the Christian faith and what the Bible actually teaches.

Fighting for Those Caught in Sexual Lies of the Enemy

We start with a basic truth:  All humans are sinful and rebellious against God until the grace of God opens our eyes to our sin, leading us to confession, repentance and believing in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord of our lives.  If not for the grace of God, any one of us could be deceived into believing the lies we hear throughout our culture and even in the church. Many of us who have been enlightened and saved by faith will struggle with temptation and sin until the day we die.

Today we tackle the growing confusion regarding sex, gender, identity, and sin and what we can do to lead others to the truth of God and His Word.  For twenty years, Mike Levenhagen of Reclamation Resource Center has been dedicated to speaking the truth in love to those not only imprisoned to homosexual or gender-related lies, but also to those who struggle with heterosexual lust and adultery. Check out the podcast and hear Mike’s testimony.
