Random Aberrations, Apostasies, and Heresies
I have many articles I want to write (a topic list with some references sits on my desk) but I am just busy with so many things lately that I’m resorting to posting some great quotations for provoking the thoughts of my readers. Due to various medical issues with both me and my wife, we've had too many doctor visits; we’ve had extra band practices because of an important performance next month (our band meets 70 miles from our house); we are involved with photographing old country schools and helping a newspaper website with their archiving of photos and information on these schools; I’ve been busy teaching the history of U.S. military aircraft; doing much research for a local pastor; ministering to an elderly shut-in (including transporting her for doctor appointments); and responding to many e-mail apologetics requests. I’m really hoping some of this stuff slacks so I can get back to reviewing New Age Bible Versions as well as writing articles on various topics. Until then, I hope my readers enjoy the citations I post.
As a follow-up to my December 4th discussion of “church karaoke,” why does it have to be so LOUD!?!? The youth group choir sang to the recorded music today and the music was so over-powering in volume that you could barely hear their voices! Please, you who are in the position of running the sound — lower the volume!
More proof that the Pope speaks for the devil and not for God.
Why do any churches allow Jesus Culture garbage into their assembly?!? OR Hillsong, or Vineyard, et al ? Worship leaders, please use some discernment!
Is self-defense a biblical position? I have always said it is, and this article agrees with my understanding of Scripture.
Rick Warren has now proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not only apostate, but also a heretic.
The foolishness of dangerous false teachings gets more bizarre daily. Self-proclaimed “prophet” Larry Randolph (one of many Elijah List false prophets) has a bizarre teaching in an even more bizarre book: The Physics of Heaven. Please don’t waste your money.
When discussing the bizarre, I am immediately reminded of IHOP, and Mary’s weekly “Warning You With Tears Wednesday” includes a lot of information about this cult.
When skeptics/atheists accost you about why Paul didn’t mention the virgin birth, use the information from this article to counter them.
False Teacher of the Year 2015 — Mark Sandlin.
A good perspective on Mary, the mother of Jesus, to counter the Marian cults (such as Romanism).
More heresy by the Roman Catholic Church.
Jesus Culture band is dangerous. Of course you should expect that, coming from the Bethel cult.
Some good warnings about admiration of “Christian” celebrities.
Chuck Missler has been on my RADAR for quite some time. While he has a lot of things right, he has way to many things wrong. Mary Dalke has a good exposure of Missler which I recommend for your perusal.
While doing some research on Joyce Meyer this week I came across this excellent article exposing her worst teachings. And yet Christians will go to the mat defending Meyer—including many of the commenters!
Just remember as you are warned about the wolves, that we know who wins in the end!
