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

Bad and Ugly Stuff

It is really getting more and more difficult to determine what topics of news items is bad and what are just plain ugly!  There may be some crossover from bad to ugly, but I’ll let you decide what you think they should be.

The Bad:
Jeff Jansen.  How can anyone listen to this man’s claims without laughing or at least rolling their eyes!  Of course Sid Roth is the interviewer, and he’s as whackadoodle as they come!

The Church of England slides faster into full-blown apostasy.

The sad state of the Church in the USA.

More false claims of healing by Bill Johnson and Bethel Redding church.

Seventh-day Adventism is a cult — I just wan to remind you of that.  Interestingly, they are very pro-abortion!

The Ugly:
Bethel Redding can’t get bizarre enough. They teach more and more Word of Faith theology (“little gods”) and false signs and wonders.

It seems like the false teachings at Bethel, Hillsong, and their ilk, can’t get much worse.  What they teach is what Paul called “another gospel.”  The men leading these “goat pens” are wolves.

An example of what is wrong with so much of contemporary “Christian” music.

Todd White: false teacher, false prophet, false Christian. The last video on this post is proof of his abject narcissism.  But if you really want to see how horrid he is, this is the article for you.

Then there is the other Todd - Todd Bentley. I think he might be even more demonic than White!

Smith Wigglesworth was the original Todd Bentley — abusing people and calling it of God.  There is nothing of God in this type of “healing,” which heals nothing.  And his great-granddaughter has accepted this demonic “sinistry.” (The host, Sid Roth, is as false of a teacher as they come.)

John Gray — new to me, but just as spiritually deadly as any.

It doesn’t matter what they call themselves, these people are NOT Christian, but they are spawns of Satan.

The humorous 
With all the truly horrid stuff sold in “Christian” bookstores, this may some day become a reality!
