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

Ugly Things Within the Church

The infection of
false doctrine in the Church.

WARNING: Carl Lentz is trying for a comebackHe’s getting counseling; psychobabble counseling which he will most likely claim has cured him and therefore he can be back in the pulpit.

Here comes the next Hillsong/Bethel-type church of apostasy and heresy.

Beth Moore - the woman really, really needs to be put out to pasture.

I saw this old video and decided to share it. It’s tells what Jehovah’s Witnesses teach about Jesus.

The Pope continues to prove that he has nothing to do with Christianity, is not a spokesman for God, but is a spokesman for Satan.

Francis Chan has really gone off the deep end. The man is a blasphemer as well as being a rank false teacher.

I previously linked to an article about “The Bible Project” and I keep learning more problems with it. Well, I learned it also has some theological problems regarding hell. Stay away from this “project.”

Where are all the discerning women?

Clint Adams has an excellent examination of rank heretic Richard Rohr, who also happens to be a major promoter of that horrid, unbiblical nonsense of the Enneagram.

Raphael Warnock is a false Christian leading a false church and now is trying to be a Senator. Just what we need in the Senate — another Demokrat, racist anti-Semite.  (I have yet to find in the Bible where we need to repent for our “worship of whiteness", whatever that is.)

More Stuff to Think About

I keep telling you Hillsong is a cult and Carl Lentz is a cult leader. And this is what cult leaders do. His wife also got fired. Some other information says Lentz was unfaithful as early as 2014!

3 Reasons Sunday Is Not the Christian Sabbath. Something from The Gospel Coalition I actually agree with!  But then they also include this article about the need to be Sabbatarians!?!  Sorry, but I have proven conclusively that the Sabbath was only for the nation of Israel.

More Scripture-twisting by LEFTIST so-called “Christians.”

The Catholic Church: sex trafficking and homosexual predation. Has history for them really changed since the days where popes were immersed in sexual debauchery?

A perfect example of all that is wrong with the church. As the author points out, David Platt is guilty of teaching Christians that it is okay to vote Democrat. You cannot honor God as a Democrat

It’s disappointing and disheartening to learn that Ravi Zacharias was essentially a con man, even though he had some excellent teachings. I often wondered about his discernment based on who he associated with. Check out the videos on this site.

A Political Statement

The fact that Trump hasn't won by a landslide and that Biden is in a good position to win really tells a lot about just how far this country has descended into total depravity with the desire for free things over freedom. I'm disgusted with what our culture has become.  God has given this country the government it deserves.

Be Still My Soul

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on your side;

bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;

leave to your God to order and provide;

in ev'ry change he faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul: your best, your heav'nly Friend

through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul: your God will undertake

to guide the future as he has the past.

Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake;

all now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know

his voice who ruled them while he dwelt below.

Be still, my soul: when dearest friends depart,

and all is darkened in the vale of tears,

then shall you better know his love, his heart,

who comes to soothe your sorrow and your fears.

Be still, my soul: your Jesus can repay

from his own fullness all he takes away.

Be still, my soul: the hour is hast'ning on

when we shall be forever with the Lord,

when disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,

sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.

Be still, my soul: when change and tears are past,

all safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

When Calvinist Ideology Changes Lyrics

One of my favorite hymn is “And Can It Be?” —It’s a wonderful statement of the Gospel. But what happens in a Calvinist hymnal?

Here is the third verse as written by Charles Wesley:

He left His Father’s throne above—

So free, so infinite His grace—

Emptied Himself of all but love,

And bled for Adam’s helpless race:

’Tis mercy all, immense and free,

For, O my God, it found out me!

Now see a Calvinist version:

He left His Father’s throne above—

So free, so infinite His grace—

Humbled Himself, so great his love!

And bled for all his chosen race:

’Tis mercy all, immense and free,

For, O my God, it found out me!

Charles Wesley is spinning in his grave.
