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:
A good examination of Rastafarianism.

Open borders—illegal immigration—and the Bible.

One terrible lie destroying Christianity.

Fighting off the wolves.  But it isn’t just for pastors.

What motivated the writers of non-canonical books?

Reasons why Seventh-day Adventists don’t celebrate Easter; in short, because they are a cult.

Invalid reasons for staying in a church you know teaches false doctrine. Look at the names listed throughout the article—mark and avoid them and their teachings.

The Bad and/or Ugly
Beth Moore is unable to stay out of the lime-light with her asinine pronouncements.  And she thinks she speaks for God!

More Beth Moore—Sigh!

The Gospel Coalition is becoming more and more the “Apostasy Coalition.

Forgery at the Vatican is nothing new.

A “Come Holy Spirit” Conference!?!?!  A collection of some of the top heretical speakers wants your money to tell you lies.

Here is great collection of videos about many apparitions of “Virgin Mary,” but these apparitions are nothing but demons toying with people who look to Mary as a god.  There is absolutely no biblical support for these being Mary. For further study of this topic, I recommend Quite Contrary: A Biblical Reconsideration of the Apparitions of Mary, by Timothy F. Kauffman, and The Cult of the Virgin: Catholic Mariology and the Apparitions of Mary, by Elliot Miller and Kenneth R. Samples. The evidence for these apparitions being demonic is quite conclusive.

Here’s something I haven’t reported on in a while: Adventures in Missions and World Race. This testimony (with part 2 here) about the organization should be spread far and wide to keep people from even thinking about joining them.

Jennifer LeClaire— What can I say?

The humorous 

Progressive Church Replaces Pew Bibles With Coloring Books. I wouldn’t be surprised if it really happened.

Change "Approval of men" in Sproul's quote to "Approval of women" and he might be right.

In Sproul's quote, "men" means mankind. And that quote is 100% accurate as it is.

Of course I know that "man" there means mankind, but its still a false statement. Churches only care about women. This is more and more obvious as time goes on in this society. So the distinction has to be made that they are seeking the approval not of men but of women.

You are in general WRONG--it is NOT a false statement, rather it is 100% correct. What the seeker-sensitive/market-driven churches are seeking is the approval of younger people of both sexes.

Your attitude in all your comments on my various articles is of someone who really dislikes women.
