Apostasy used to mean abandoning or renouncing the faith. Today, many churches are turning woke – a modern day renunciation that isn't looked upon as apostasy. Duke Pesta (fpeusa.org), Director of the Freedom Project Academy, is back with us for an extended interview this week to discuss the battle between Christianity and Marxism and why they are so antithetical. We're in a spiritual war but many church leaders are too weak or too ignorant of Christian history to fight this battle. Will we be strong enough to fight? When the persecution comes to our country and our churches, where will we stand?

How did the church – and our society – end up where we are today? John finishes up the show this week looking at how the globalists have moved us along these past several decades and where we are right now. The globalists are they're planning to reset things to a pre-Trump erosion of national sovereignty as soon as they can. So it may be a new environment we're walking into, but the work of God's Kingdom continues and it will be up to us, as the world aligns against the church, to figure out our place in it.

Socialism and Christianity are antithetical to each other.  Co-opting in the church is the new word for apostasy.  Duke Pesta (fpeusa.org), Director of the Freedom Project Academy is back with us to discuss the differences between Marxist woke-ism and the Christian church, which concerns primarily opposing outlooks on materialism.  He covers how the church has been infiltrated over the past several decades and how most church leaders are too weak or too ignorant of Christian history to fight this battle.  Will there be massive Christian persecution in the United States, and if so, how soon will it happen?

The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church is upon us.  On today's podcast, John looks at how the Church is faring today amidst the Marxist fundamental transformation of society in the West.  First there was the decoupling from Christian thought and now there is an attempted replacement in the form of socialist utopianism.  John recalls his quest to cover the persecuted church over the years and the roadblocks he faced from those inside the Christian church who didn't think anyone wanted to hear about it or that it would affect attendance.  Whether we acknowledge it or not, persecution of the church is coming in the West and in certain aspects has already arrived.  We must stand with Christ – through the good times and the bad.

Several years ago, the Bremerton, Washington School District fired football coach Joe Kennedy over a brief silent prayer he made on the field after a game. Stephanie Taub (www.firstliberty.org), Senior Counsel at First Liberty Institute, joins us to discuss the status of the case, as well as the freedom of religion and the right to religious expression. John finishes up today's podcast reviewing a few examples of Christian persecution around the world.

We play the full discussion John had recently with Lee Lancaster at a local North Idaho radio station, KYMS.

Wake up, America! Radical Progressives are organizing for a transformation of Western society on all levels. This Marxist infiltration won't stop at the doors of your homes and churches. John and Lee discuss how these revolutions have always oppressed anyone who gets in their way, even their own 'true believers'. What are the costs required to stand up to this onslaught and is there any hope in sight?
