Guest: Tom Ascol, Pastor and Film Producer of By What Standard?

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S.  Having turned from theological liberalism in the 1980s in an era known as the “conservative resurgence”, the SBC is now in another bellwether battle over three issues, all centered around the question of whether Scripture is sufficient in all matters of life and faith…or not.

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with an average weekly attendance of over five million people at affiliated churches and an overall membership of nearly 15 million.

TOPIC: Christmas Special—How to Not Miss the Reason for the Season

This is a rebroadcast of our December 22, 2018 program:

The most significant event in history was the coming of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, into our world.

From being born of a virgin woman, to living a sinless life, to performing miraculous acts, to offering His life on a cross to pay the penalty for mankind’s sin, to rising from the dead, to ascending into heaven—all in front of a watching world—is […]

TOPIC: How Thanklessness is a Mark of a Society in Decline

In the first two chapters of his letter to Christians in Rome, the apostle Paul establishes that all people are sinners and separated from God, spanning the spectrum from non-believing Gentiles to religious Jews.

Paul describes what leads the former group (non-believing Gentiles) into downward spiraling degrees of sexual immorality and other sins is suppressing the truth and not acknowledging God (v. 21, 28).

That makes sense—reject the authority of God and man is the […]

2019-10-28T21:17:20-05:00Oct 25, 2019|

GUEST: GREG KOUKL, PRESIDENT, STAND TO REASON

The worldview divide between biblical Christians and the rest of society, whether secular or religious, has never been wider.  Yet our “commission” remains the same—to “make disciples” of Jesus Christ (Matt. 28:19-20).

Before someone becomes a disciple, they must first “repent and believe in the gospel.”  To get to that point of regeneration, God will likely use a conversation […]

Righteousness belongs to You, O Lord, but to us open shame, as it is this day.  Daniel 9:7

Do you ever watch the cultural and moral battles of our day and think, “Is what is taking place actually for real?”

For example, boys and girls are encouraged to choose their gender (as if that were possible) and given drugs to do so.  People demand to be called […]

Guest: Todd Friel, host, Wretched TV and Radio

we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ…  Ephesians 4:14-15
