Where is the Church Headed? in America

The only thing that never changes is God; everything else is in a constant flux of change:  sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse. The professing Christian Church in America has gone through a gradual change over the past several decades as secular culture has slowly infiltrated and influenced it.  As secular culture, public education, media, and an increasingly powerful government put pressure on the church to approve of a godless agenda, we will see many churches start to buckle to the pressure and conform to the world. Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project and Elijah Abraham of Living Oasis Ministries travel around the nation and the world sharing the gospel and equipping churches to remain anchored to the truth of God’s Word in a world that is pressuring them to conform to the ways and values of this fallen, sinful world.  They both join us in studio for a frank discussion on the condition of the church and professing Christians in America.

Biblical Christianity in the Crosshairs

Americans have been historically blessed with a Constitution that guarantees us the right to religious beliefs and expression of those beliefs.  But slowly and surely those freedoms are under attack by secular humanists, public education, media and an out of control government.  At some point we will reach a breaking point in our nation where the Bible is viewed as hate speech and where every person who trusts in it as the Word of God will be seen as dangerous.Joining Mike and David today is Pastor and best-selling author Carl Gallups.  Carl is a student of biblical prophecy and has studied the trends in Europe where Christianity has all but been eliminated from society.  Is America next – and what will be the consequences?

Hatred of the Gospel

Jesus warned us that in the last days, the gospel would be rejected and His followers would be hated.  Though unreported by secular media, we are seeing staggering increases in the persecution of Christians and the destruction of Christian Churches worldwide.  This morning Mike and David discuss the real story behind the headlines of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire in Paris, and an internationally known Christian Rugby player threatened because of his Christian beliefs.And on this Holy Week leading up to our celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the gospel is under attack around the world. Taking a cue from Europe, many American Christians are looking to please the world and compromising the truth of Scripture all around us.  Pastor Mike Abendroth of No Compromise Radio joins us to take a look at what we so often take for granted: what Jesus accomplished almost 2,000 years ago through the cross and the empty tomb.

Trust, Confidence and Fear

The life of a disciple of Jesus Christ can be complex at times.  The Bible tells us we should trust God in all matters.  It says we can approach the throne of God in confidence with our petitions.  And yet it also says to fear God.  Trust, confidence and fear:  Not always easy to reconcile all three of those, yet this is the life we are called to as believers, particularly in a world that increasingly hates God and we who are disciples of Jesus.

Debunking Fallacies and Doubts about the Bible

Two facts are indisputable these days. First, the world is growing more evil. Darkness is increasing and God’s Word is being openly mocked and ridiculed. The second fact is too many believers, people who profess to be Christians, are ignorant of the truth of God’s Word. This leads to being ineffective in bearing fruit, living the Christian life and sharing the gospel of salvation with others.  This not only opens the door for confusion, chaos, or crisis in society – but also in the church.Our guest today, Carl Kerby of Reasons for Hope Ministries, is tackling these problems head on, speaking, traveling, and by producing a video series called “deBUNKED,” answering key questions and refuting statements of skeptics. Carl is teaching Christians how to be effective in sharing the gospel and be better apologists for God.
