Jesus Christ “Superstar?”

It’s one thing when a secular men’s magazine idolizes a hip pastor, and quite another when a Christian magazine does it. Both are distasteful and anti-biblical, and both are part of a growing element in our culture that elevates men (and sometimes women) in church leadership to rock star status, leaving our Lord and Savior, […]

God’s Letter to the Churches

Are the letters to the Churches in Revelation pertinent to the times we live in?  Or were they a specific warning to these churches for a specific time in history? A proper understanding of Biblical prophecy shows us that they are both—a warning to the churches of John’s day and a warning to the churches […]

The Real Christmas Story

Tomorrow night on what we call Christmas Eve, millions of Americans will flock to churches of differing Christian denominations.  Many will flock there out of a sense of religious obligation—you know, getting the mundane responsibilities out of the way so we can be with family and watch football. Many will fulfill part of their “annual […]

I’ve included a snippet below, but please read the entire piece here: The Intolerance of emergent (liberal) Christianity …Orthodoxy says that salvation is by Grace through faith alone.

Whether it is that new car, a brand new big screen television, or our latest technology gadget, the excitement of that new possession grows faint as we become familiar with it. Sadly it is even the same in our personal relationships. The joy […]

“Another Jesus” Calling: New Book by Warren B. Smith

Can we trust our emotions and experiences to give us the 100-percent accurate truth?  Many people are turning to their own experiences over the real Truth that God promises can be found in the Scriptures.  “They’d rather feel a presence than know God through His Word,” says Warren Smith, a frequent guest on Stand Up […]

Money, Power and Political Correctness: Are these our “gods?”

We seem to be distracted by many things. Money, power, fame, being politically correct, being “right.” But Jesus said there are more important things, like sitting at His feet, learning about Him and sharing the hope we have with a world that not only doesn’t know Him, but one that is growing increasingly dark. Today […]

Atonement scoffing spreads like rancid yeast

The growing move among the progressive Christians away from Jesus’ atoning work on the cross was a spark initially ignited by Brian McLaren a few years ago, and more recently promoted by Tony Jones and others. As you can see from the link to this article, this blasphemous idea is a quickly spreading leaven that […]

What do I know?

I recently received a loving rebuke from a pastor who is a long time friend and a Pentecostal. He was concerned that I had painted all Charismatics with the same brush. I read that letter in its entirety today on our Stand Up For The Truth program, and you are welcome to hear what he […]

Things that go “Bump” in the church

Today we are talking about truth and compromise. Yesterday afternoon on our website we shared a letter from one of our listeners about her heartbreaking journey out of a compromising church and into the wilderness of trying to find a church that has not succumbed to the ways of the world. In the hours since, […]
