GUEST: JOEL BEEKE, host, Puritan documentary

It’s sad that the legacy of the Puritans is either not known or misconstrued today. They rose to prominence in the second half of the 1500s and influenced Protestant Christianity and Western Europe and the forming of America more than any other people or movement.

The Puritans were born again Christians who applied Scripture to every area of […]

TOPIC: Considering the Life and Death of Queen Elizabeth II

GUEST: PAUL TWISS, pastor, Former Officer in Royal Navy

By now you know, as most everyone in the world knows, that Queen Elizabeth II has died at age 96 after reigning over Britain and its Commonwealth of nations for 70 years.

It would be hard to point to any other person’s death in western civilization over the last 100 years that has commanded more worldwide attention than the Queen’s death. Ten days of mourning and […]

GUEST: TRAVIS ALLEN, pastor, Grace Church (Greeley, CO)

“Evangelical” once meant a Christian who believed in the authority of Scripture and the call to evangelize the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ. But the devil, so to speak, is in the details of how that has played out over the decades.

Today many Evangelical churches and Evangelical para-church organizations—colleges, seminaries, publishing and music industries, camps, […]

TOPIC: What is the Christian’s Duty to God vs. Government? – Part 1

This program is a rebroadcast from 3/12/22

GUEST: PASTOR JAMES COATES, co-author, God vs. Government

Persecution, imprisonment, and murder of Christians is nothing new. The gospels recount the crucifixion of Christ and the book of Acts chronicles the threats, beatings, jailings, and stonings of first century Christians.

Today is no different for believers in Communist China or North Korea, where Christians defy government edicts and gather secretly. In some Islamic countries, Christians are […]

GUEST: Josh Buice, pastor, Pray’s Mill Baptist Church (GA)

In several programs this year, we have examined the theological war that is taking place within the Southern Baptist Convention, the nation’s largest Protestant denomination and the one that trains the most pastors in their seminaries.

The war is a microcosm of what took place way back in the early church, more recently in the mainline Protestant denominations—United Methodist Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church in […]

In late May, pastor Tom Ascol, who was then a candidate for president of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), joined us to discuss some of the pivotal issues facing the largest Protestant denomination in America. Their annual convention came and went in mid-June in Anaheim, CA, with Ascol finishing second in the voting for president behind a less biblically-conservative candidate named Bart […]

GUEST: Dr. GEORGE BARNA, Cultural Research Center, AZ Christian University

A true follower of Christ has the indwelling Holy Spirit to discern that the professed Bible-believing church in America has drifted. The lights go down and the “worship arts team” spends 30 minutes or more performing the audience into an emotional, quasi-spiritual experience. Then the pastor takes the “stage” and roams, gesticulates, and emotes his (or her) way through a 25-minute “sermon” […]

GUEST: STEVE MILLER, author, Foreshadows

Shortly before His crucifixion, Jesus told His disciples that the magnificent temple in Jerusalem—the central place of worship for the Jews—would be destroyed. Shocked, the disciples asked Jesus, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age” (Matthew 24:3-4)?

The disciples back then were asking some of the same questions that believers are asking […]
