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

Money-back guarantee for your tithes if God doesn’t bless you?!?!  Now I’ve heard just about everything.  False teachers always have something new, don’t they?  Perry Noble is a world-class heretic, as are those who teach the same things he teaches; they are just shrilling for more money.  Run from such churches as fast as you can. (The whole issue of tithes for Christians is a lie to begin with — Christians do not tithe and were never told by God to tithe.)

Music segregation in church — good questions.

Steve Gaines, again.  VBS in his church is a wee bit wild and unbiblical.

A perfect example as to why Steve Cioccolanti is a false prophet.

AutoBibleCorrect.  Some good humor/satire from Elizabeth Prata.  Unfortunately, too many false teachers apparently use this App.

The Apologia Church — Hadn’t heard of this one before.  Just another group of people wanting to feel good about being spiritual without actually having to live like mature Christians.  Seeker-sensitive nonsense.

Ronnie Floyd — proven to be a false teacher.

Bill Gothard:  The Cult Next Door.

Can someone explain why the Methodist church shouldn’t be considered totally apostate?

An example of why the nutty NAR prophets are false ones!  H/T Doug Evans

When someone calls their movement “An uncontrollable force from Heaven” all the while seeking to unite Christians with Roman Catholicism, you can KNOW they are false teachers.  They are the “John 17 Movement.”

Yes, we are to expose false teachers and even name them.

Another good article refuting the lie that Christians aren’t to judge.

I can’t add anything to this excellent commentary by Jeff Maples in regard to this travesty, except to say this is why our youth are so spiritually immature.

I don’t think Paul or Jesus would approve of this deception for spreading the gospel.  Nor do I think they would recommend pretend to be abased pagans!  The pragmatism of saying it permitted the delivery of a huge number of tracts is reprehensible.  Since when does pragmatism dictate our behavior?

If you don’t like what the Bible says about a particular sin, why don’t you just re-interpret it to modern cultural standards?  That’s what a couple of “leading” Anglican bishops want to do about homosexual behavior; they think “we need to change the church.”  I think they should make up their own religion and then they can do what they like.  (Oh, and contrary to a suggestion in the article, the command to multiply was NEVER for the Christian church — regardless of what so many Romanists and other legalists claim.)  Ken Ham has a good commentary on this situation.

For ending today’s episode: Benny Hinn can’t believe he’s still getting away with it.

The article The Cult Next Door about Gothard was very disturbing to read. I know about the scandal he's embroiled in, but I didn't know that man packed up and moved to Texas to resume his "ministry". Talk about a truly unrepentant heart. Just like Driscoll and MH... now relocated to Arizona...

Makes me sick.

I was surprised to read the negatives about Apologia Church. Pastor Jeff Durbin does an admireral job with the LDS Church. I've watched several of his videos on you tube.
