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

Don’t Say You Will do Something, Just Do It!

Today’s “worshipers” seem content to sing, over and over, or example, “I will sing of your love forever,” or “I love to praise you, Lord,” or “We have come into your house to worship you,” or similar empty phrases. Why are they “empty?” The answer is obvious to anyone who stops to think for a moment.

To repeat the phrase, “I will sing of your love forever,” is not singing of His love at all. You are only saying you are going to sing of His love. If you are sincere, then stop promising to sing of His love and get to it! Sing of His love! Recite what He has done in love, how much He has loved you, and tell Him how much you love Him and why. This should be obvious.

The same is true of “I love to praise you, Lord,” or “We’ve come to worship you.” This is neither praise nor worship but merely saying that you love to praise Him or are going to worship Him. If so, then let’s praise and worship Him! Praise is not saying that you love to praise, nor is worship promising to worship. Let’s really do it!

Well, ladies and gents, it time for another trip through interesting articles and some that will get you really shaking your heads. The first two articles linked to are to get you thinking while the rest are to continue warning my readers about the horrible false teaching wolves who prey of the naive and gullible. So let’s get started.

The End of Comfortable Christianity?

How Difficult was the Book of Revelation’s Journey into the Canon?

I can never understand how anyone can accept the nonsense spewed by Kenneth Copeland! The man is a pawn of Satan.

Steven Furtick — one of the most vicious wolves out there.  He even claims to be God.

This “professor of theology” is a 100% racist

Disgusting: this man is no pastor.

Beth Moore abuses Scripture to become part of the COVID cult.

Kris Vallotton is one vicious wolf.

Hillsong continues its dance with Papism.

Rick Warren gets worse as time goes by.

Todd White — how can anyone calling themselves a Christian take this guy seriously? He looks and acts like a tool of Satan.

Jesse Duplantis is an evil deceiver enriching himself off gullible people.

Bethel continues to have some of the most bizarre teachings. This “pastor” also says that God doesn’t know the future.

Here’s a false prophet I've noted once before— Kat Kerr. I will never understand why anyone would follow weirdos like this. Then there is NAR “prophet” George Karl who claims Jesus told him they are “always drunk in heaven.”

The state of the Church today. This is what happens when Hillsong, Bethel, Elevation Church, and their ilk not only breed their own false Christians but spread their evil into gullible assemblies who accept their horrendous music into their congregations. This cited 60% cannot be true believers in the atonement of Christ - the are false brethren.

The Devil’s Deceit in Eden

In Eden, the devil sold slavery to Adam and Eve, but called it independence; he sold them wisdom, but it turned out to be mental darkness; he put forth a beautiful vision of who they could become, but his offer was sweetly poisoned. He promised them fulfillment and gave them guilt. He appealed to their pride and gave them despair and an empty life. He promised like a god but paid them like the devil he was.

Once To Every Man and Nation

Once to every man and nation 

Comes the moment to decide, 

In the strife of truth with falsehood, 

For the good or evil side; 

Some great cause, some new decision, 

Offering each the bloom or blight, 

And the choice goes by forever 

Twixt that darkness and that light.

Though the cause of evil prosper, 

Yet 'tis truth alone is strong; 

Though her portion be the scaffold, 

And upon the throne be wrong: 

Yet that scaffold sways the future, 

And, behind the dim unknown, 

Standeth God within the shadow, 

Keeping watch above His own.

James Russell Lowell, 1845

Cited by Paul B. Long in Citizen Soldiers of World War II.

Exposing the Wolves

I’ve been quite busy with gigs, doctor appointments, work around the house, and then a few days vacation to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the day we married. So getting time to do much “research and development” for articles has been slim, and will be for a while.

However, I’ve decided to do a post mostly about people — the false teaching wolves who are preying on the sheep of the Church. First, though, I thought I’d give you the Top 10 Ways the Bible Opposes Illegal Immigration

When it comes to these wolves, some are kookier than others and some are more vicious than others. Just be alert!

Michael Gungor, an influential one-time “Christian” music artist needs to be avoided at all costs.

Max Lucado— Homosexual enabler, false teacher, joiner of social justice culture.

Matt Chandler crashing off the rails.

David Taylor, TV fraud.

David Herzog sings loves songs to Jesus as he lies about what “spiritual songs” are.

Hank Kunneman of One Voice Ministries has some wacky ideas about coronavirus vs. abortions.

With charismania we even have a “prophetess” who dies but is resurrected when enough money is put on her.

Tim Henderson has opening and closing heavenly portals.

Mark Taylor is one of those with odd ideas about “chemtrails.”

Jen Hatmaker — this woman has no clue about real Christianity — or real life.

Still think Hillsong isn’t a dangerous cult?

Lastly, don’t send your kids to an Episcopal summer camp. They aren’t Christian.

Sounds Like Hillsong, Bethel, Elevation, et al.

Profession of sound doctrine alone—that is, mere assent to propositional truth—is no substitute for a living faith. But apart from biblical doctrine, the activity of worship becomes bit nature less a service to a holy God and more an emotional experience employed as a tool to pacify a conscience troubled by corrupt behavior.

While advocates of “contemporary” worship certainly have no corner on sinful behavior, it has become increasingly less shocking to hear of immoral behavior by preachers who trade on feelings, have marginal interest in doctrine, and follow CCW forms of worship.
