Let Earth Receive Her King, Let Every Heart Prepare Him Room

Many of us began preparing for Christmas and the five ‘F’s a month ago: festivities, family, food, fellowship, and fun. It’s easy to forget one of the most important aspects of the season: forgiveness – and renewed hope. Christmas is the celebration of an actual historical event that forever changed the world, as the God who […]

Standing Up to Bullying and Intimidation

Rarely does outright persecution just happen out of the blue. It usually seeps in gradually, starting with free people not being diligent and thinking the persecution of another individual or institution is none of their concern. Once the proponents of persecution see that we lack the courage to stand up for others they naturally assume we will lack the backbone to stand up for ourselves, and they begin to pick away at our freedoms, breaking down our resistance.

In every institution in our nation we are seeing Bible-believing Christians marginalized and attacked. From education to media to government itself, witnessed by the unconstitutional ordinance the City of De Pere tried to impose on local churches, the enemy is testing our will and commitment to God. Sadly, as I personally witnessed here in De Pere, there are some churches that decide to sit the battle out letting the other 5 brave churches who stood with us do all the fighting. This morning, we look at the expanding attack against the religious freedoms and conscience of Christians in America.

In our first segment, we are joined by Laurie Stewart, President of “Women in Apologetics”. We look at the crucial role Christian women play in teaching other women and our children correct biblical apologetics.

When Human Emotions Are Held Higher Than God’s Word

Our human emotions are based on circumstances, prejudices, and programming. The heart is sick and emotions can lie to us. But God never changes and is incapable of lying. So when our human emotions conflict with God’s Word it is clear that the truly born-again believer should trust in God’s Word no matter what the world is trying to sell us. But the exact opposite is happening in our society and even in a growing number of churches. Logic and rational thought based on God’s Word is being replaced with humanistic ideals and emotional over-reactions to important issues.

John Loeffler of Steel on Steel Radio joins us for a discussion on the dangers to the church and our nation when irrational emotion becomes the bellwether for right and wrong instead of God’s Word.

Increasing Persecution of Christians in India and Beyond

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again believer in Jesus Christ, travels around the world teaching and equipping pastors and Christians where persecution is a daily occurrence.  Many of them risk their lives, traveling many hours to join other believers in Christian fellowship.

Elijah just returned from India, a Hindu nation where the government might say they allow people to worship freely, but persecution and the murder of Christians is accelerating rapidly. Elijah joins us to talk about the plight of Christians in India, and also share his thoughts on how prepared Christians in America are if we face similar persecution in the coming years.

A Victory for Religious Freedom

On December 14, 2018, the Court strongly reiterated that Wisconsin Law provides strong protections from a church or non-profit religious organization being considered a “place of public accommodation”. This was a crucial ruling for several reasons.

The Dr. Duke Show, Religious Freedom, and Radicals in Academia

Dr Duke Show hosts, Duke Pesta and Katie Petrick of Freedom Project join us today for some almost unbelievable education updates. You’re not going to believe what is actually happening on college campuses and in public school classrooms in America. Some in the LGBTQ community are now openly admitting their goal is to “groom young children.” Their agenda has moved on from diversity to inclusion. We discuss what they mean by “inclusion.”

We look at recent news stories showing how government-run education is repressing Christian thought and expression.

We also explain the good news from Friday that a judge struck down De Pere’s extremely broad, non-discrimination ordinance. Judge William Atkinsion upheld our challenge and struck down the ordinance calling it unconstitutional, ruling in favor of Christian ministries and religious freedom.

So praise God! Our legal challenge to the City of De Pere’s “non-discrimination” ordinance was successful.
