What is “The Most Dangerous Cult” invading Christianity? Some say it’s the New Age mystics, who promise we can adopt unbiblical ways to experience the spiritual realm. Others say it is Universalism, or Human Secularism. But there is another ism that one watchman says has been even more dangerous, and that is Christian Progressivism, the idea that we should look at the Bible as a nice collection of thoughts, but not something we should trust as God’s inerrant Word. Later in the program we’re going to hear from Eric Barger on some of these trends impacting the Body of Christ.
But in our first segment today, a Christian leader who happens to be a United States Congressman, is here to share about how policy is being shaped in America. It’s a great opportunity for our listeners that mainstream news outlets rarely offer: a chance for you to ask him your questions and get immediate answers. Congressman Reid Ribble is a third generation and lifelong Wisconsin resident, and he is joining us on the phone today. Email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org in the first 20 minutes.
Reid Ribble was born in Neenah, Wis., and graduated from Appleton East High School. After high school, he attended Grand Rapids School of Bible and Music with the intention of going into full time ministerial work. He then decided to follow in his father’s footsteps by joining the family roofing business. Reid brings a unique set of life experiences to the U.S. House of Representatives on behalf of Wisconsin’s 8th Congressional District.
Eric Barger’s early years as a record producer and musician lead to a drug habit and took him on a path into New Age spirituality. Until he was turned around by the Truth and transformational love of Jesus Christ. In the years since, Eric has built his life around God’s Word and helps people learn about Him through his research in Christian apologetics.
Eric’s Take A Stand! Ministries confronts both the culture and the Church, focusing on the troubling unbiblical trends and doctrinal issues facing Christians.
