How to Discern Truth from Culture’s Lies, with Pastor Jack Hibbs

Today on The Natasha Crain Podcast, I talk with Pastor Jack Hibbs about some of the most pressing examples of deception in the church. (Pastor Jack is the founding pastor of Calvary Chapel Chino Hills, which is a community of 10,000 members in southern California. His podcast attracts 250,000 listeners monthly, and he broadcasts to 800 radio stations daily.)

Our discussion is based on his new (excellent!) book, Living in the Daze of Deception: How to Discern Truth from Culture’s Lies.

You will LOVE this discussion! Don’t miss it. We talked about subjects like:

  • What Christians should look for when they decide whom to follow in their spiritual lives;
  • What false teachers look for when working to deceive;
  • Why “easy believism” is a form of spiritual deception;
  • Why one of the significant marks of a woke church is the avoidance of teaching the Old Testament;
  • The difference between a biblical and deceptive call for unity;
  • Why Christians should be concerned about globalism;
  • How Christians should respond to DEI training at work;
  • …and much more!

Also, I wanted to let you know one final time that it’s not too late to send your kids to a Summit Ministries Summer Student Conference! Summit offers incredible two-week experiences in Colorado and Georgia for 16- to 22-year-olds focused on helping them develop a deeper foundation in Christian worldview and apologetics topics. They have a whole team of world-class speakers who tackle some of the toughest subjects today. Most of the Colorado sessions are already filled, but there are still some August spots available. There are also still spots available at the Georgia location in July. Summit has generously offered a $200 discount for listeners of my podcast (use code NATASHA200)! Go to to register or learn more.

And don’t forget about the three upcoming Unshaken Conferences! Alisa Childers, Frank Turek, and I will spend the day equipping and encouraging you to stand firm in your faith in this increasingly tough culture. If you’re near one of the following three locations, you are not going to want to miss it! Tickets are on sale at
