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

Spiritual Formation at Worship.  How this movement shows up in many churches, and who is behind it all.

Clayton Jennigs update.  And the plot thickens.  Oh, and now we have an apology video!  As if that restores him to ministry?!?!? Notice how it is similar to the second video — looks like just part of his normal acts, and very narcissistic.  The man should be forever barred from ministry of any kind. 

Calvary Chapel is slowly sinking.

Joel Osteen needs to be careful about abusing Scripture.

Another good article about nonsensical spiritual warfare.  Don’t neglect to listen to the half-hour program at the bottom of the page.

I’m not the only one saying 2 Chronicles 7:14 isn’t for Christians.

Stop using “The Message”!  It’s a MESS.

More testimonies about the cult of World Race and Adventures in Missions.

Bill Johnson’s heresies at Bethel church.

Catholics and their worship of relics is totally unbiblical superstitious nonsense.

The more I learn about Michael Brown, the more I have to warn against him!!!  His manipulation tactics have been identified.

Homosexuality is invading more and more assemblies where the leadership is more concerned about being politically-correct than about protecting their flocks.  “As in the days of Noah…”

Shunning — an example of the cultic nature of the Amish.

As I’ve written in the past, Seventh-day Adventism is a cult.  But when there is not even a pretense of Christianity, it is hard to understand why people stay in it.  Can you just imagine Jesus or Paul having “interfaith” celebrations?!?

And finally, Fred Butler has posted his review of chapter one of heretic Hugh Ross’ book, Navigating Genesis.

The Justin Peters quote was spot on. When pastors court wolves, that's a serious problem.

There's a lot to digest with the Calv Chap article. Skimmed it. First thing that caught my eye: Rick Warren. There would be the root of much/most of the problems.

Problem with Hugh Ross, or anyone using science to prove the Bible. That would make 'science' the higher standard. There is no higher standard than the Bible. God does not even try to convince us in the opening verses of Genesis that He exists. He just is...and that presupposition is to be taken by faith.
