We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Random Aberrations, Apostasies, and Heresies

Hello ladies and gents!  It’s that time again to highlight recent news about false teachings in the Church.

Answers in Genesis continues to provide reviews of that revisionist history TV series, “A.D., The Bible Continues.”   Episode 10 has some of the most ridiculous stuff yet!  Not much better is Episode 11. This abuse of Scripture — and history — in this series is inexcusable.

AIG also reports on another upcoming TV show which is sure to abuse the Bible and history, Of Kings and Prophets.

“Bono” from the “Christian” band U2 professes to be a Christian, but the evidence suggests otherwise.  Be careful what you fill your mind with and who you let teach you — even through music.

Catholics decided that Mexico must be full of demons which need exorcising — all because of Mexico’s new law for same-sex fake marriage.  So why haven’t they tried exorcising demons from the many states in the US which have legalized this fraud?  Actually, Rome needs to exorcise itself!  Most amusing is that even the “gay” news points out the ineffectiveness of Roman Catholic exorcisms.

Speaking of Roman Catholicism, now the pope has jumped on the “climate change” bandwagon.  It’s not important that science doesn’t support it (demonstrated by the Catholic position on evolutionism), rather it is important because the pope wants to be like the world and promote the false social gospel.  Oh, and if you want to use air-conditioning, well you are just part of the problem.
Of course part of the whole social gospel is the end of wars — and impossibility.   Well the pope has declared that those who make weapons cannot call themselves Christians.  For some reason he has decided that Christians should have nothing to do with weapons regardless of what the Bible says.  Ah, but how does this go along with his complaint about the allies not bombing the railroad lines to Auschwitz?  Can he spell, “H I P O C R I S Y”?!?  And yet Catholics follow him as if he speaks for God.

The Church of England has brought much trouble on itself because of its apostasy.  Now they are being sued for denying permission for a homosexual to serve in public ministry because he “married” his partner.   Once the Anglican Church approved of homosexuality, they really have no logical reason to deny the end result.

Hey, Joel Osteen has stated that President Obama is a Christian!  I guess that settles the question, doesn’t it?  Um, nope.  Obama is doing his best to legally persecute Christians and the Christian faith, promotes the homosexual agenda, thinks abortion is just grand, promotes theft, and has no respect for the rule of law.  Just to mention a few things.  If Osteen himself was a Christian, he would know better.  Remember, this is the guy who said Mormons worship the same God as do Christians.

There is nothing at all wrong with a church — or any building — having restrooms which aren’t limited to either male or female.  They usually just have a sign on them showing a man and a woman with a line between them, and they are a single person unit which may or may not have a urinal and women’s products — I’ve been in many.   But this is not the same thing as deciding to make an “all gender restroom” so as to pander to those who claim to be of the opposite sex from what they really are.  And when your church is a haven for “transgender” people, then I guess it’s natural to help promote their agenda.  Just don’t pretend to be a Christian assembly.

Do you want some false doctrine in your life?  It’s quite easy to do.

I'd like to see the Pope tell the Duck Dynasty guys that because they have guns that they are not Christians. That would not go over well at all.

Incidentally, Glenn McCoy, the cartoonist who drew the Pope cartoon, is a local guy who made good. We enjoy his editorial cartoons every day in the Belleville News-Democrat, and I remember seeing the one you posted.

"Have you not read, God created them male and female..."

How much more simple can this be? Apparently not today. I'm with you, single stall restrooms, that can be used by male or female, are fine. If there are more than one facility in the restroom, then it should be male OR female, no exception.

I do find the story about the so-called exorcism of Mexico hilarious. Read the Bible, this is the age of Satan, the whole world lies in the grip of the evil one. There's no nation on earth that can be exorcised free of the devil. And if you cast out one demon and do not fill the house (with the true Holy Spirit), 7 more wicked demons will return to the empty house and reoccupy it. Oh yes, and a kingdom cannot be divided against itself...

Oh yes, how to have false doctrine in your life, that post was spot on and admittedly pretty humorous (in a sad but funny way).

Hi Diane,

What a coincidence! I had a good laugh when I first saw this cartoon, and downloaded it waiting for my article - it just needed to be posted.

I really like conservative political cartoons. They have so much more truth than the liberal ones.

Why not point to the papal encyclical rather than a disparaging website? It is not just about climate change, but unless you bothered to read it, you won't know it. In UK I'm afraid it's very clear that the climate is warming, with earlier springs and species being seen further north.

Anonymous,

I don't care what the rest of the pope's nonsense says. The fact that he is promoting faux science and the social gospel demonstrates he is not a man of God. Mankind has nothing to do with changing climates and therefore cannot do anything about it. The climates have changed from hot to cold to hot again for thousands of years. Look up "little ice age" as an example of extreme climate change. Don't be brainwashed by those who are wanting to control everything you do in the name of "science."
