On a recent radio program, we discussed some influential voices within the church. It is disappointing how many followers these people have. One example if you haven’t heard the latest, is Christian author, Jen Hatmaker. She not only endorses same-sex marriage, she now goes so far as to say (ready?) she believes gays and lesbians who are married should receive counseling from the Christian church – to strengthen their marriages if they want to be part of the Christian community.

She previously said same-sex relationships can be “holy,” after which her books were pulled from LifeWay Christian Store. More recently, Hatmaker said she dreams of a day when church is safe for the LGBT community. Okay, define ‘safe.’ 

I have learned that when liberal Christians, the left, progressives, or the emergent church preaches “unity,” what they mean is uniformity. They are fine if we conform to their watering down of the true gospel. They love the idea of diversity as long as we united around their progressive worldview that distorts the truth and deity of Christ.

Dead But Still Wielding Power & Influence

All people eventually die, but some continue to impact generations of people for a very long time. While there are certainly positive examples of this, today we focus on seven people who have died but continue to have an incredibly destructive, negative influence on the world. From evolution with Darwin, psychotherapy and humanism with Freud; progressive education with John Dewey, and the economics of John Maynard Keynes, these individuals left a legacy that has led to a heap of problems.

Our guest this morning, Pastor Randy White, discusses a book by David Breese titled 7 Men Who Rule the World from the Grave.

Though their bodies lie cold and dormant, the grave cannot contain the influence these seven men have had on today's world. They continue to rule because they have altered the thinking of society. They generated philosophies that have been ardently grasped by masses of people but are erroneous and anti-scriptural. Today these ideas pervade our schools, businesses, homes, even the church. As we continue to unkowningly subscribe to their philosophies we keep the grave open for: Charles Darwin, Julius Wellhausen, John Dewey, Sigmund Freud, John Maynard Keynes, Soren Kierkegaard and Karl Marx.

In the final segment today, we cover a controversial article about another disappointing voice influencing the Christian community.

Separating Fact from Fiction with Climate Change

Young people today are very passionate about the subject of climate change. And more often than not they are being indoctrinated with emotional, fear-driven arguments about mankind destroying the planet because of our "carbon footprint." We should acknowledge and applaud their concern about being good stewards of God's earth, but how can we help separate fiction from fact? Dr. Cal Beisner of The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation joins us this morning.

We also look at a concerning report that North Korea, led by a man who is undeniably a maniac, now has the full capability to strike the U.S. with a nuclear weapon. Oh, and by the way, it could take less than 40 minutes for a launch from North Korea to strike the heartland of America, and while the U.S. has a missile defense system, it is apparently only reliable about half of the time. How should we respond as Christians to today's headlines?

The Dilemma Known As Hillsong

They are one of the largest producers of Christian music in the world. Frequently they will have more than one song on the Top 40 Christian charts and they are heard on almost every Christian Radio Station in the country, except this one--and for very good reason. Along with their popular worship music, Hillsong, a mega church based in Australia, carries a lot of baggage.

They have become a hyper-charasmatic, word of faith church, and their American church's pastor, Carl Lentz, is seen as a theological lightweight, continually compromising the Word of God for entertainment, church growth and his "hipster" image. He loves hanging around with celebrities and he was recently seen at a bar with his latest celebrity "convert," Justin Bieber, drinking shots and singing lyrics to secular songs few Christian parents would let their child hear.

This morning we cover the strange relationship of Hillsong's pastor Carl Lentz and Justin Bieber and ask who is influencing who?

In our first segment we discuss the doctrine of heaven and hell with Pastor Mike Abendroth and how it is widely dismissed by many leaders in the church. How is this affecting evangelism and discipleship in the church?

Guarding Against Growing Deception

Over the past decade we have seen increasing attacks on God's Word and Jesus permeate media, education, and social media. And if we do not study and understand the Bible we can become easy prey for the deception that is being presented as factual these days.

The Book of Genesis is a foundation for the rest of the Bible, but it clearly has been lied about and attacked. The enemy knows if we doubt Genesis, the truth about creation and the fall of man, that we are prone to his slick lies that we ourselves can become like gods.

Today we are joined by Tim Chaffey of Answers in Genesis and Midwest Apologetics. Tim has written several books and travels the country debunking the lies and misinformation presented about God and His Word. He was also instrumental in the development of Ark Encounter -- a life size replica of Noah's Ark where people experience the truth of God's Word.
