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

Did She Really Say That?!?!?

This was posted on Facebook by another apologetics ministry.  Jesus is not a boyfriend and He doesn't try to get women to have crushes on Him. This is another perfect example of what a horrid, narcissistic "teacher" is Beth Moore.

I liked what the author of the FB post said:
Jesus is not your boyfriend - "so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." Philippians 2:10-11.
By pandering to her Twitter fan club, Beth Moore reveals her distorted, irreverent, and false view of who Jesus is. Mark and avoid this deluded teacher.

A Real Conglomeration

I’ve been busier than I can even think to describe, which means my collection of links was getting to much to put off posting any longer!  So hold on to your seats as you skim through the linked articles.

More and more, real science agrees with creationism.

Should we look at a teacher’s lifestyle? Or only his/her doctrine?

False Christ of The Chosen, Jesus Calling & The Shack - Pastor Chris Quintana

Homosexuality is the unfailing characteristic of paganism.

Say WHAT?!!?

I can’t warn you often enough to stay away from Jen Hatmaker; and remember she is supported by false teacher Beth Moore.

The ignorance and emotionalism of those following false teachers never ceases to amaze me.

Excellent overall examination of the Bethel Redding cult.

“Pastor” Chris Reed is another New Apostolic Reformation false teacher/prophet. Avoid him like the plague.

Lou Engle— sigh.

More Roman Catholic apostasy.

The ELCA denomination is about as evil and polluted as it gets.

The Church of the Covenant in Boston has proven it is not a Christian church. Of course, since it is aligned with both UCC and PCUSA, it’s a foregone conclusion that any banner they put up would be ungodly.

The dangers of Willow Creek.

This is what The Gospel Coalition has descended to—there is no Christian teaching here.

Another Agglomeration -- Already!

So much in the news since SCOTUS rightly overturned Roe v. Wade that a lot of Moloch worshippers are being exposed, even in the Church. That added to other news regarding crazy stuff being perpetrated by false teachers really added my collection of articles to share. So hold onto your seats!

This isn’t about apologetics, per se, but I think it is an excellent, thought-provoking article. I could argue it’s about apologetics in that we are looking at a biblical view of sex vs the culture’s view.

But with LEFTIST churches and teachers, they think telling someone to remain chaste is a burden and it is better to let women who have irresponsible sex to have an abortion. Just look at these “churches” and teachers: 

United Church of Christ Funeral For Roe. They want abortion so they don’t have to follow the teachings in the link above! This denomination has been apostate for decades.

The Episcopal Church continues to prove it is a church of Satan. These people are disgusting.

The Gospel Coalition is supporting abortion!!! And contrary to their claim, there is absolutely NO moral reason for abortion. TGC is as apostate as it gets.

Methodist churches worshipping Moloch.

Beth Moore—she’s about as apostate as it gets.

If you think Christians should not be in politics, you need to read this.

Moving along:

Iowa City is rife with LEFTISTs, probably because it’s home to the University of Iowa. 1st Presbyterian Church of Iowa City has proven to be what PCUSA wants it to be—a heretical teaching institution. Start this video at 39 minutes and you will hear the most blasphemous prayer I’ve ever encountered!

This “church” is no longer a church of Christ, but of Satan.

The Church of England doesn’t know what a woman isAnother look at this apostasy.

The Bethel cult is now selling “declaration clickers”— “a powerful and practical tool to help believers renew their minds with truth by helping them tabulate the number of times they speak biblically based declarations.” Greedy leaders found another way to soak their cult members.  But, hey, they now have dominion of the air!

Fake “near death experiences” and visits to heaven—beware of these frauds.

And here we thought Willow Creek was bad before!

Why Do So Many Worship Leaders Look So Gay?

More on “The Chosen” and the Mormon connection.

The Brownsville/Pensacola Revival had many false teachers who are still out there.

Three false gospels of Evangelical Christianity.

Wives, do you make your husband known at the gate? Just a thought-provoker before I expose some false teaching/teachers to avoid like the plague.

The Southern Baptist Convention now speaks of sin as “mistakes.” Which comes as no surprise the way they subvert “the Bible to Social Ends.” The SBC president says unrepentant homosexual behavior won’t send you to hell.

Priscilla Shirer continues her descent into apostasy as she preaches at Joel Osteen’s church!!

Do you remember the Brownsville/Pensacola Revival? Of course it was a fraud, as I’ve said from the beginning, but the proof shows it was a carefully planned emotional event manipulating people. The video is 54 minutes long, but eye-opening.

Christianity Today’s Russell Moore’s “justice conference” featured multiple apostate speakers who are pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality.

I learned something new about the apostate Bethel church—they promoted “prophetic Uno cards.” That’s about as bizarre as it gets.

I’ve never even heard of singer Grace Semler Baldridge, but she is obviously a fake Christian.

Roman Catholicism. First we have a Kentucky church held a service apologizing to the “LGBTQ” community! Nothing but apostasy there! Then we have rabidly pro-abortion Nancy Pelosi, who claims to be a loyal Catholic and who was denied communion by her bishop, getting communion at the Vatican!!!!  Be sure to see this great commentary on the event.

Ya know, I understand what this street preacher desired, but it’s the wrong venue. These people just see him as throwing “acid” in their faces; he really had no business being there. Take this as a lesson as to what NOT to do.

Beware of “leopard theology.”

Let’s end with some teaching about heresies.

Odd Symbology

The photo below is a scan from the front of an order of worship bulletin for a “Blue Mass” in Davenport, IA on 18 May 2022. If I remember correctly, they used the same photo on the front in previous years when I’ve played with the band outside the church before and after the service.

Okay, so why did it take me so long to address this thing? I guess I never previously thought about it, but since May this year I’ve been trying to get a chance to sit down and do a blog post and now is the time.

So here is the question:

The man on the cross is obviously Jesus, and the dove above Him obviously represents the Holy Spirit, but is the other man, with all the white hair and beard wearing white raiment, supposed to be God the Father? If so, would this be an heretical representation since God is spirit? (It reminds me of the Mormon god-man).

Can You Help Me?

The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such things come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.

1 Timothy 4:1-2

I’m trying to find information about Redeemer Church, the place were false teacher Tim Keller used to preach. I’ve been on their site and done some “googling” but can’t find answers the three questions I’ve been asked to research. If anyone has information regarding the following, please either comment below or send me an email. Thanks.

What is their stance on women in the pulpit?

What is their stance on the gender issue?

What is their stance on Replacement Theology?

Update 6/30: I finally found an email on their site so I just sent an email to them asking these questions. I wonder what sort of response I will get?

An Agglomeration for "Pride Month"

“Pride Month” has all the heretics/apostates coming out of the woodwork as they mock God.

First, let’s start out with learning what “Pride Month” is.  It’s really about rebelling against God and His desires for human sexuality.

“Pride Month” is something with which no Christian should have any sympathy whatsoever.

Ah, but even a well-known Christian publisher, from where I’ve purchased many books, has decided to thumb their collective noses at God and endorse the perversion.

Then we have the “Hymn Society” blaspheming God with hymns sanctifying what God calls an abomination!

The Southern Baptist Convention is spiraling out of control.

A Mennonite denomination is now affirming fake marriage and promoting the “inclusion” of LGBTQ+ practitioners. 

Then we have a Catholic Church joining in on LGBTQ+ events.

A drag queen event, including children, in Texas was partially sponsored by a Catholic health ministry!

A ray of light is the news that a Catholic bishop said a Catholic school can no longer call themselves Catholic because they flew the LGBTQ+ flag and the Black Lives Matter flag. A man with guts!

Now let’s look at some items of regular apostasy and heresy outside of “Pride Month” celebrations, as well as wolves to avoid.

An ELCA university commencement had a prayer to Allah. Since Allah is a false Muslim god, this is just more proof of the apostate condition of the ELCA. Ah, but they are “inclusive.”

Elizabeth Prata has a whole dossier on why Richard Warren is an apostate and false teacher.

Holly Pivic exposes the New Apostolic Reformation false teachings.

With that unbiblical series “The Chosen,” you need to get used to a different Jesus.

A somewhat lengthy, but excellent, article teaches why we shouldn’t use songs from Bethel, Hillsong or Elevation Churches: doing so supports false teachers and their teachings.

Together 2022 convention will “sacrifice truth on the altar of unity.”

Lastly, Russell Moore proves he is an unworthy teacher who idolizes false teacher Beth Moore; he makes me almost nauseous.

What About the Jews?

Question: Are the Jews automatically saved? Without going into a lot of detail, can you explain the relationship between Jews, Gentiles, and the “church” as we get closer and closer to the End Times? 

Response: Judaism is as invalid for automatic salvation as Islam. No one is saved simply because he is Jewish. The gospel “is to the Jew first,” so the Jew must need to be saved through the redemptive work of Christ just like the Gentile. That’s basic. 

The church is made up of both Jews and Gentiles who have been made into one new man through the cross of Christ. But again, that does not do away with either Jews or Gentiles, so Paul reminds us that there are now Jews, Gentiles, and the church of God. 

On the other hand, as a nation the Jews remain God’s chosen people—with a special place in God’s plan and special promises to them that pertain to the land of Palestine and the coming kingdom. Jesus was born King of the Jews, and, as the Messiah of Israel, He must reign upon the throne of His father David, as Gabriel stated to Mary. This didn’t happen when He was here the first time, and it will be fulfilled when He returns. Read Zechariah chapters 12-14. Christ returns to this earth, not to Washington, DC or London or Paris, but to Jerusalem, where His feet come down on the Mount of Olives. 

Why? To rescue His people Israel, not to rescue the church! Those who survive to this moment (about two-thirds of Israel will have perished) will see Him whom they have pierced and will realize that He is indeed the Messiah for whom they have waited, and will believe that He died for their sins, and be saved and enter into the Kingdom—and He will rule that Millennial Kingdom from Jerusalem. 

Granted, some have said it is nonsense to maintain that there is some kind of special provision for the Israelites as a nation and as a people, even when they continue to reject the gift of the cross, but anyone who says that obviously needs to read the Bible more carefully. Israel has had a long history of rejecting God, all through the wilderness and even in the promised land, and God has had to judge them for it, but He has not repudiated His promises to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob concerning their land, and He has sworn that He will not.
