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

The Good and the Ugly

 First, let’s have a couple of good articles: 

How about an elder’s children?

Biblical judgment in a “Don’t Judge Me” World.

Now I can put you into a spiraling depression to see how Satan is destroying the church. But the warnings about these things is necessary because too many Christians follow these false teachers. 

I can’t warn you often enough—Stay away from Bethel music! Stay away from the cult of Bethel, period — they are NOT “apostles”!

Joanna Gaines. A new one for me, but also a dangerous one. Heads up!

Beth Moore, and her ilk, just can’t keep their “mouths” shut—proving what horrid ideology they  promote; they hate conservative (i.e. biblical) Christianity.

How can they continue calling themselves Catholic?

An interesting commentary about the Vatican’s statement against same-sex fake marriage.

An excellent article about some teachings of Islam and why they vote for same-sex fake marriage.

Hillsong gets worse by the day.

Francis Chan just keeps getting worse.

These are not men of God, rather they use their position to enrich themselves.

John Piper just keeps sliding down that slippery slope to heresy.

SIGH!! — Sometimes Satan is working in overdrive.

The Pope says God made “gays” that way - totally absolving them of their sin. The Pope has been doctrinally heretical and apostate from the beginning but now he is supporting that which in the Old Testament God gave the punishment of death!

An excellent — although a bit lengthy — review of false teacher Alex Seeley’s sermon, Your Harvest Is Determined By The Seed You Sow. This is one teacher to avoid like the plague.

The Gospel Coalition long ago left the Gospel for the world. This is putrid.

“Transgenderism” invades a LEFTIST Australian church. Once you’ve left the fundamentals, anything goes.

Paula Price — another woman controlled by Satan.

Rick Joyner and Morningstar Ministries — EGADS!!

Continue to pray for good teachers to stand firm in the faith.

Of these, Piper and TGC trouble me the most. My husband and I were never fans of either of them (they just "bothered" us for some reason...), but over the years, we have had many solid Reformed friends who eagerly promoted and followed both. We are now praying they see the serious issues with both and are avoiding them.

I have emailed a couple mega churches and asked if they support Bethel teachings since they play their music, just out of curiosity. One church just gave me a curt, no, they don't following Bethel teaching. Another one said, oh good question I will as the senior pastor about that. I never heard anything. My neighbor works at a local church and occasionally I'll ask her about their support of the rock star claiming to turn to Jesus but he's doing the Bethel drunk in the spirit stuff and she'll at me like she doesn't understand what I'm saying. It's really weird. There's a lot of strangeness going on today. Seems like most churches across the nation play their music along with Hillsong and Elevation. It's kinda creepy actually. Thanks for discussing it. Helps me feel like I'm not so alone.
