When Daniel and his friends faced King Nebuchadnezzar’s ultimatum that they fall down and worship the king’s golden idol or be thrown into a blazing furnace, this was their reply:

GUEST: MIKE GENDRON, founder/evangelist, Proclaiming the Gospel

We know the darkness the world celebrates each year on October 31 but it’s disconcerting that the day passes with most Protestant churches, generally, and Evangelical churches, specifically, devoting little or no time commemorating and teaching about something far more momentous which took place on that date in 1517—Martin Luther nailing his “95 Theses” document on the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, […]

Psalm 46 starts out this way: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change…

With all the transformative events taking place—COVID and injection mandates, government and big business authoritarianism, the fall of Afghanistan to radical Islamists, the death of 13 US Marines by suicide bombers, the utter ineptness and godlessness of the Biden Administration—one might consider a topic on missions and church planting to […]

Remember the talk about COVID vaccine “passports”… Like one would need to show proof of vaccination to go to work, eat at a restaurant, or go to a gym?

Well, it’s now here. In the course of the last week, the dominoes have begun to fall en masse with businesses, colleges, the federal government, and other sectors instituting vaccine mandates.

Work for a company and don’t want to lose your means of income? Then […]

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.
