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

Good, Bad, and Ugly

The Good:

What was the shape of Jesus’ cross?  No, it wasn’t a “stake” as the Jehovah’s Witnesses claim.

Why Quaker beliefs are problematic.

The Bad:
The cultic nature of the New Apostolic Reformation.

Moody Bible Institute has had some discernment issues for quite a while, but I didn’t know just to what extent this was until I read this article.  Now things have been coming out which have led to resignations among the leadership.

Jonathan Cahn’s new book, “The Paradigm” has led to me being contacted about a review of this book which could show how horrid Cahn’s teachings are.  While looking for information, I came across this link to discussions about all sorts of issues regarding Cahn.  This is a site I started following last year—and can highly recommend—but I missed these!  Well, if that isn’t enough for you, here is another collection of links exposing Cahn’s nonsense; good resource if needed.

Why is it that Catholic universities never seem to follow Catholic doctrines?

The Ugly:
Michael Brown is participating in a conference headlining a bunch of hardcore heretics.  Don’t EVEN try to defend him — he continues to prove he is a blatant false teacher.  This is the NAR at its finest!  Phil Johnson has written an interesting article about Brown’s continued support for false teachers.

The NAR and Bethel just get more and more bizarre.

More on Christalignment.  Kris Vallotton of Bethel Redding has approved of this group.  There is nothing Christian about this.  This article, and the video report, give excellent reporting on the “tarot cards” used by Christalignment, as well exposing Michael Brown’s defense of it!!!

Proof positive that Bethel’s Kris Vallotton preaches a gospel of wealth.

If you didn’t think the PCUSA was full-blown apostate before, try explaining this away.

An example of how false teacher Paula White abuses Scripture to suck money from her gullible followers

The humorous 
KJV-Only Pastor Tests Positive for NIV.  It must be true because I saw it on the Internet.

That article on "positive N.I.V." is outright hilarious!
