The City of Manitowoc, Wisconsin kicks off its Windigo Fest tonight. "Windigo" is an American Indian folklore about a cannibalistic monster and evil spirit who allegedly possesses humans and becomes monstrous. There is even a modern medical term associated with it these days called "Windigo Psychosis." Despite protests and concerns from some citizens, the city is allowing this dark event and some are very concerned the city is opening its arms to demonic presence and influence.

And guess who is kicking off the event? Opening with "some prayers for healing from the evil violence shaking our nation," is a local Presbyterian pastor. So pastor, you are endorsing and participating in an event that celebrates violence and spiritual possession, while praying against violence in our nation?

We also share your comments and questions from the week, including comments from students who received varying reactions to bringing their bibles to school yesterday, gun control, understanding the liberal mindset, and what to do when your children argue with you about going to church.

How the Enemy Advances

The Enemy is advancing through our country, our culture, and even many of our churches because we have surrendered much ground and have not defended the truth. Though there is always hope for a revival – and I have no idea what it might take for this to happen – the light is dimming in and on America, and the clock is ticking.

Many have already been deceived as the Enemy has had success defining the terms of battle, and in many cases, redefining words. The Left has been promoting sin as normal, natural, and healthy, and when Christians speak up, it leads to charges of intolerance. If we do nothing, even more people will call evil good.”

If most Christians continue to avoid these battles, if we are not established in His truth, and if we refuse to defend the faith, society will rapidly deteriorate. If we do not pray to the only living God to give us wisdom, strength, and guidance, we won’t be able to effectively share the gospel, influence culture for Christ and bear good fruit for Him.

A Crisis of Leadership

No, we are not talking about President Trump or Congress; we are talking about the hard-working, dedicated men who heed God's calling to be a pastor. It's not surprising that according to recent studies, many of these dedicated men are tired, discouraged and often feel alone.

We have discussed on this show the reality that there are famous mega-church "celebrity" pastors out there who have watered down the true gospel or have adopted the church growth movement teachings of Peter Drucker, Rick Warren, or the Willow Creek Model, and have amassed large churches where their role appears to be more like a CEO whose concern is about nickels and noses. Some of them live an extremely luxurious life which is not wrong in and of itself.

But today we look at the state of the majority: hard-working, dedicated pastors of generally smaller churches, committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ and faithfully teaching the Word. And by most indications they are over-worked, under paid and growing more discouraged as the years go on. What responsibility do we as members of their churches bear in this crisis? And what can we do to come along side them and help?

We're also joined by Julaine Appling of Wisconsin Family Action to discuss new legislative actions to increase restrictions on abortion, explain the politics and red tape in the U.S. senate, and update us on a Wisconsin transgender law suit where a school in a very liberal district took a surprising stance.

Trying to Make Sense of the Unimaginable

The senseless shooting of hundreds and murder of 59 people in Las Vegas by a man with no apparent history of violence, criminal activity or religious or political affiliation has experts baffled, looking for answers to this horrible tragedy.

And, as was easily predictable, liberal politicians immediately jumped in to take advantage of this tragedy and push their agenda for more gun control laws. This twisted criminal obviously violated several gun restriction laws already in place, but something about the liberal mindset seems to say "Well, we need more laws and that should do it!"

As most liberals push gun control and most conservatives defend the Second Amendment, no leader in Washington seems interested in talking about the real cause: our nation, which originally pledged its allegiance to God's Law and principles, has abandoned everything God teaches us about life and morality in His Word.

In the meantime, we have young children looking for answers and guidance as they grow up in a culture where violence is around every corner. They are bombarded by content on television, movies, music and in video games that glorify violence and sexuality; and thousands of babies are aborted every day while they are being told the gender they were given by God might have been "a mistake."

Tina Griffin of Counter Culture Mom joins us to sort through the lies and discuss how to guide and protect our children from a culture bent on destroying their moral fabric and very soul.

Birthing Ishmaels in Our Lives

Let's start with some biblical history: God tells Abraham (Abram) that he will give him a son and his descendants will be as numerous as the stars and a great nation. Sarah, Abram's wife, is very old and convinced that God has closed her womb, so she tells Abram to have sex with her Egyptian servant, Hagar, to birth a son. They did have a son, Ishmael, and Sarah was mad at Hagar for doing what she commanded her to do.

But God was still faithful and true and gave Abram a son through Sarah, Isaac, as his legitimate heir. Ishmael, not part of God's plan for Israel, is sent away and fathers the Arab nations that today war against the Israelites. Instead of waiting on and trusting God, Abram birthed an "Ishmael" and all sorts of problems as a result.

Dave Wager joins us this morning to discuss how we as believers continue to "birth Ishmaels" in our lives, causing problems because we are outside of God's will.

When We Collectively Turn Our Backs to God

In our final two segments this morning we share our thoughts on the tragic mass murder at a Las Vegas concert- 50 killed and over 400 wounded in what is now the deadliest shooting attack carried out on American soil.

We will also discuss a Minnesota couple being sued and punished by the state of Minnesota because of their Christian values and beliefs. And we ask the question "Has America gone beyond the point of redemption in God's eyes?"

In our first segment we are joined by William Murray of The Religious Freedom Coalition. William's mother used him as a young boy to get prayer thrown out of public schools, and we get William's perspective on the Marxist movement perhaps disguised as democratic socialism?
