TOPIC: What to Discern from the Church Fracture Where David Platt Pastors – Part 2

2021-07-31T07:48:54-05:00Jul 31, 2021|

Last week we discussed part 1 of our topic on the fracture taking place at McClean Bible Church just outside Washington DC where well-known Evangelical leader and author David Platt is the lead pastor.

The story has been covered in national media, including Christianity Today which stated:

To some observers, McLean Bible Church’s conflict seems like a replay of other recent episodes from American evangelicalism, where leaders who appeal to Scripture to address social […]

TOPIC: What to Discern from the Church Fracture Where David Platt Pastors – Part 1

2021-07-24T08:38:10-05:00Jul 24, 2021|

David Platt is one of the most influential evangelical pastors in America. He came to prominence after the release of his best-selling book Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream. He has served as president of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, one of the largest missionary sending agencies in the world, and since 2017, has been pastor at McLean Bible Church, a mega-church with four locations located […]

TOPIC: How Your Church Can Avoid Mission Drift

2021-07-17T07:51:43-05:00Jul 17, 2021|

Guest: Matthew Fletcher, senior pastor, Webster Bible Church (NY)

Last week we discussed the very troubling situation that the new president of the Southern Baptist Convention, Ed Litton, plagiarized sermons for several years from the immediate past president JD Greear. What’s worse is that, as of yet, Litton hasn’t resigned nor has the SBC removed him for a transgression that would result in expulsion for any seminary student.

The only guesses as to […]

TOPIC: Pastors and Plagiarism—Sermon Prep or Sermon Theft?

2021-07-13T10:15:50-05:00Jul 10, 2021|

GUEST: JUSTIN PETERS, founder and preacher, Justin Peters Ministries

Just days after our recent program on the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Annual Meeting, which in part focused on the election of new president, pastor Ed Litton, and where he stands on various issues, it was revealed that Litton had for many years been plagiarizing sermons nearly word for word from immediate past SBC president, pastor JD Greear, and that Litton’s church […]

TOPIC: The Psychological Manipulation of Critical Race Theory

2021-07-03T08:17:24-05:00Jul 03, 2021|

GUEST: KATHERINE KERSTEN, senior policy fellow, Center of the American Experiment

Contrary to what the mainstream media and some Evangelicals are saying about Critical Race Theory (CRT)—that it’s a “bogeyman” (that it’s made up, nothing to fear)—Christians who are paying even half attention know and see how this insidious ideology that pits non-whites against whites is infiltrating every institution in our country.

The government-run public school system has become a flashpoint for heated confrontations between […]

TOPIC: Confession Without Conviction—Southern Baptist Annual Meeting Recap

Because of its size, […]

TOPIC: An Aged Perspective on the Country and the Church

2021-06-19T07:04:37-05:00Jun 19, 2021|

GUESTS: Bruce and Mary Jane Wheaton (David’s parents)

Our country has long commemorated one Sunday in May and in June to honor mothers and fathers. Sadly and tragically, in our day and age of social and familial transformation, mothers are now called “birthing people” (actual term from the Biden administration’s 2022 budget) and fathers are demeaned as weak and unnecessary.

To which the Bible says, “let God be found true, though every man be found […]

TOPIC: The Cause and Effect of Critical Race Theory Part 2 of 2

2021-06-12T07:49:33-05:00Jun 12, 2021|

Critical Race Theory (or Critical Theory more broadly beyond race) is now the de facto worldview of the political left, academia, mainstream media, corporations, and even the military.

This worldview sees everything through the Marxist prism of oppression, with white, male Christians being the source of injustice and inequality in society.

CRT rears its ugly, divisive, racist head every day, in school board meetings, corporate board rooms, and from the White House.

And now a slightly […]

TOPIC: The Cause and Effect of Critical Race Theory Part 1 of 2

2021-06-05T09:15:31-05:00Jun 05, 2021|

Every cause produces an effect. Drop a pebble in a pond (cause) and small ripples form and travel outward (effect).

Likewise, ideas are causes that produce effects. Good ideas produce good effects and bad ideas bad effects. Big, unbiblical ideas are not like dropping a pebble into a pond but rather a nuclear bomb on a society—widespread destruction and even death are the effects.

Critical Race Theory, the idea that White Supremacy is the dominating […]

TOPIC: How to Think and Live in an Anti-Truth Culture

2021-05-29T07:52:31-05:00May 29, 2021|

GUEST: ROBERT KNIGHT, author and columnist, Washington Times

Satan and unredeemed humanity have always been at war with the truth. This is because God is the source of truth, and thus to try to escape accountability to God and persuade others to do the same means one must believe and propagate lies.

This includes lies about God’s character and nature, His laws and justice, His offer of […]
