Has modern culture stolen your world view? With all the screaming voices, who do you trust? How much have you been subversively influenced?

    Christians are a Bigger Threat To America Than Al Queda?!

    Democratic strategist James Carville appeared on the Bill Maher show and claimed that Christians--and/or Christian nationalists--are the biggest threat to America…."worse than Al Queda." He made many other claims that are a brilliant way to illustrate (1) That Christianity is truly under threat in America. (2) Christian nationalism is used to mean "traditional Christian." (3) The left and the right mean very different things by the word "democracy." This short episode is packed with extremely …

    Why Are You So Political?

    One question that I get asked often is "Why are you so political?" In fact, I think that confusion over politics is one of the greatest challenges to the church today and is causing massive division. This episode is the simplest explanation possible for why we cannot escape politics. Secondly, I discuss how secular social justice has twisted true justice, turning it on its head. Many Christians have fallen for this and have fought for secular social justice. And even though the results of …

    Cooper Stuff Replay - Definition of Wimpy, Weak, and Woke

    Today we have Cooper Stuff replay about the definition of Wimpy, Weak, and Woke. The increasing conflicts in America today are often referred to as "culture war." But what is truly happening is a war between gods - the living God and the god of Man. Wimpy, Weak, and Woke uncovers the philosophies behind utopian dreams that become dystopian nightmares, and presents a positive vision for how we can thrive and flourish. The false promises of Man lead to destruction; God's ways lead to life.

    Drag Queen Dove Awards and the Silence of Christian Outlets

    This week I went semi-viral with my comments about Christian music's "Dove Awards," in which three provocateurs showed up. On todays episode, you'll probably notice that I'm fired up due to the absurd silence of Christian platforms. Where is the solidarity from the industry, or from the Christian platforms? They are nowhere to be heard. The truth will set us free, but much of American Christianity believes that the truth is impolite. I'm sick of the wimpy, weak, and wokeness in our churches! …

Today's episode will be extremely illuminating for people who want to understand what's happening in our world, and why we must stand against it. We cover postmodernism, multiculturalism, and Foucault's "heterotopia." All of this is explained more thoroughly in my new book "Wimpy, Weak, and Woke," available for …

    Victorious for Truth

    Today we continue our Sword and Sheild series. Our Scripture is Psalms 45:4. We tend to either lean towards grace or truth, but the Bible tells us to live in grace AND truth. We are to be victorious in the battle for truth whilst being meek! This sounds impossible, except that our lord showed us how.

    Israel Massacre, Decolonization, and Western Civilization

    The horror of the massacre in Israel by Hamas has shaken the world. Though the history of this region is complex, the atrocity and brutality exhibited by Hamas must be spoken against. Meanwhile, we have seen American university groups, some in the media, some BLM chapters, members of Congress, and even Christian influencers either support Hamas or bring moral equivalence between the violent acts of Hamas and the perceived oppression against Palestine from Israel. As I explain in my new book, …
