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

I’m not going to have time tomorrow to post an RAAH, so I’m going to post this today even though I don’t have a large collection.  Still, it’s always a rough ride.

This woman’s husband is a youth pastor in a Baptist church and yet he is allowing his wife to support Muslims?!?!  He should be relieved of his position because he is not “managing his own family well.” (1 Tim 3:4)  H/T to Erin.

Justin Bieber, the entertainer who I just recently reported on as going to build and pastor his own church (and who is a Hillsong follower) now is being used by the devil to promote the heretical writings of Sarah Young.

Evangelicals Divided, A Movement Fractured, Part 1.  Marsha West does an outstanding job of explaining what is happening in the “evangelical” Church.  Looking forward to part 2!

Cleaning out my files I came across this excellent review of John Eldredge’s wildly unbiblical book, Wild at Heart.  Don’t wast your money on this book.

I also found this short review of Jessie Penn-Lewis’ book, War on the Saints.  I read the book a long time ago and found way too many problems with it.

Another Gilley book review from that file is this one on Bruce Wilkinson’s Secrets of the Vine.   Not as bad as his “The Prayer of Jabez,” but that’s not saying a whole lot!

Answers in Genesis has a very good technical article reviewing Robert T. Pennock’s book, “Tower of Babel: The Evidence against the New Creationism.”  The book’s intent is to “prove” the errors of creationism while “proving” evolution, but his charges are all easily dismantled by the reviewer.

Just too funny.  Sounds like Steven Furtick’s church.

Speaking of Steven Furtick — SIGH!

Doctrines of Demons.  The whole idea in charismatic circles is not only unbiblical and nonsensical, but also spiritually dangerous to those under the burden of such teachings!

Video exposing Beth Moore as a false teacher.

The Resurrection really happened.

Let’s end with some more humor:  Altar Call Self Defense Training.  Something you’ll need to know for those charismatic meetings!

In regard to the "hijab Christian", the dumbing down of people seems to be just about complete. She hit all the high points. "Love", "Judge not", "all people of the Book", and Pope Frances agrees.

Too bad God does not. Muslims are clearly not "our brothers and sisters in faith". Whatever book they are people of, it has nothing to do with my Lord. Allah is a devil.

Yes, Martha DeVries has all the best intentions. We know where that road leads.

Erin and the Christian woman supporting Muslims....ah....interesting. In my form conservative Baptist church, it was unfortunate when I called out former President Bush on his quote, "Yes, I believe Muslims and Christians worship the same god/God," to high ranking Deacons and Deaconesses, as complete blasphemy.

You would have thought I sinned against God, the Holy Spirit, when pointing out the lies spewing from their political idol's mouth. But then again, when a church dons the American flag in their front yard or church building sanctuary, we already know the gods of this world are at work in the visible church.

And unfortunately, many of my church going family members actually agree with President Bush's statement all the while condemning those of us who know the truth as, unloving and intolerant.

And now, in my former conservative Baptist church, a yoga master is giving exercise classes to the women one day a week, and the conservative women who love lording it over me, love it! Maybe it is a part of their Lead Like Jesus studies.
