Random Aberrations, Apostasies, and Heresies
Too late for this Christmas, but some good apologetic information for future use is a series by Tekton Apologetics Ministries:
Christmas is Pagan and other myths. Good short video warning about crazy sites.
In the series, Part 1: is it unbiblical to celebrate birthdays? And were pagan gods born on Dec. 25th?
Part 2: why December 25th?
Part 3: Stuffing the tree up
Part 4: Christmas Tree Potpourri
Some good discernment articles by Gary Gilley:
Mormonism Research Ministry has several videos available for free viewing on-line. I own all but one of these and can vouch for the accuracy of the information provided, as well as recommending them for viewing by Mormons as well as by those who want to learn more about proving that Mormonism is a false belief system.
A former nun speaks out.
This video clinches the fact that the Pope does NOT represent Jesus Christ.
John Piper shared preaching duties with heretic Christine Caine at Passion 2016. In the past he shared with false teacher Beth Moore. So why is he still being held in such high esteem as a great teacher?!? To make matters worse, he is also promoting the racist “Black Lives Matter” movement!
The NAR is getting more and more bizarre. Avoid their teachings at all costs.
Alec has another episode in his series, “Biblical Christianity.”
Thanks to Alec’s comments on another blog, I was led to this site where you can get come good information about the mysticism entering the Church and how to counter it.
A site with good examinations of the Word of Faith and other charismatic excesses (and other stuff now and then) is by Robert Liichow. Liichow is ex-WOF who ended up going to seminary and is now a Lutheran (LCMS) Pastor. I met Bob 14 years ago at the first apologetics conference we attended, and he’s got some good stuff. One thing you have to look out for when he’s discussing true Christianity is the Lutheran stuff which is almost like Calvinism. Otherwise he’s okay :oD. His site isn’t up-to-date, and I think he probably just ended up not having time for it, but the articles are still good reference. “Truth Matters” is
The modern Church and “The Sin That Became An Evangelistic Technique.” The major problem is that too many church leaders have forgotten that the assembly is NOT an evangelistic event and was never meant to be.
Another good response to those who say Christians should not have guns, let alone use them or any weapon for self-defense.
David Barton, known for lots of books on various historical issues, really can’t be trusted.
A list of names to be familiar with - so as to avoid their teachings!
Lastly, just when you though Joel Osteen’s heresy couldn’t get any worse he now claims God is NOT omnipotent!!!
