Pulpit & Pen News has the story and a couple of videos to watch:
A few things you’ll learn from this clip.
First, Bakker claims that Trump watches the Jim Bakker Program.
Secondly, Bakker claims Trump admires Bakker for “getting back up.”
Third, the applause you hear after Bakker says the above is a sound effect. You can hear the few (25-30) people in the audience clap and then you’ll hear an added-in applause sound effect added in post-production to make it sound like hundreds are in the audience. Listen closely; you can hear it. It’s pretty obvious.
Fourth, Bakker claims he might get shot for wearing a cross hat. Okay.
Fifth, while extolling the religious virtue of Donald Trump, Bakker claims that all of his prophecies have come true.
“Everything God’s ever spoken to me has come to pass. And everything…you give minutes, almost. Your prophecies – the words God has brought – you’ve given us to the minute…what this book is going to reveal to you is the warfare we are in.”
Breitbart has the story:
A group of illegal aliens calling themselves the “Immigration Liberation Movement” crashed a press conference by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Monday, warning the Democratic Party not to “sell [us] out.”
The group shouted down Rep. Pelosi, who struggled to maintain control of the meeting, and unfurled a large banner calling for all illegal aliens to be legalized.
Others held up signs, including: “Fight 4 All 11 Million,” referring to the estimated total of all illegal aliens in the U.S.
In the “mic check” call-and-response style popularized by the Occupy Wall Street protests in 2011, the activists declared:
We remember all too well how for eight years the Democrats laid siege to our communities, raiding and deporting nearly three million people, of our family members and loved ones. Where was your resistance then? Ms. Pelosi, did you think we would forget? We send a clear message to our fellow undocumented youth and community: We are the resistance to Trump! Not the Democrats!
According to Baptist Press, Adrian Rogers son Steve spoke of the 4,0000 hours he and his brother David spent reviewing his father’s recorded sermons and how it underscored for them their father’s commitment to expository preaching.
With a commitment to helping a new generation of preachers and pastors in the pulpit, the Adrian Rogers Center for Expository Preaching at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary was dedicated in a Sept. 12 chapel service.
In partnership with the late Adrian Rogers’ proclamation ministry Love Worth Finding, the NOBTS center will provide resources and present conferences and lectureships to encourage and equip students and pastors.
The center’s inaugural “Empowering the Pulpit” preaching conference, Jan. 29-31, will feature leading expository preachers Jim Shaddix and Robert Smith Jr.
The dedication took place on Rogers’ birthday; he died in 2005 at the age of 74.
Although some charismatic “Weather Warriors” thought they could control the weather simply by confidently decreeing and declaring, even finger shooting, a cat 4 hurricane into the Atlantic Ocean and “dissipating,” Hurricane Irma failed to respond to their commands. After leaving a path of devastation across the Caribbean, the hurricane whipped through Florida, causing death and destruction. Now the hurricane hunters have some splainin to do. According to Pulpit & Pen News, one of them “acknowledges that maybe the charismatic community hasn’t got the whole ‘controlling the weather’ thing down yet.” And they never will. Why? Because God controls the weather.
Now to P&P’s story:
NAR Apostle Lance Wallnau finger shooting Hurricane Irma
Weather is one of those things that happens. In fact, weather happens every day. In further fact, weather happens every day everywhere. Proving that humanity continues to be as superstitious as our ancestors ever were, there have been lots of theories about why the recent hurricanes have occurred. Actress, Jennifer Lawrence, says that it is “nature’s wrath” for the election of Trump. Stevie Wonder said anyone who doesn’t think climate change caused it is “blind” (it’s unclear whether he was making a pun). Kirk Cameron is the celebrity with the perhaps the best answer, which was essentially the Providence of God. One charismatic preacher claimed that it was meant to resemble a sonogram of a baby, and blamed abortion. Other charismatics have also claimed to know the specific divine reasons for these hurricanes.
According to Breitbart, during the interview with Rose, “Bannon said though Trump was 15 points down in the polls, he said Clinton ‘reconfirmed’ to him that ‘she has no earthly idea what she’s doing. She has no earthly idea where this country is.’”
Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon told Charlie Rose that elites on Wall Street and in Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and Washington, DC, have committed an “economic hate crime” against working-class Americans by eviscerating the country’s industrial base.
Rose aired Bannon’s remarks Monday evening on his much-heralded Charlie Rose Showon PBS after 60 Minutes devoted two segments to Rose’s interview with Bannon on Sunday evening.
Bannon said though Donald Trump had a double-digit deficit in the polls when he took over his campaign, he knew Trump was going to win the election as soon as Hillary Clinton gave her infamous alt-right speech.
According to Jerusalem Post:
The newest Barbie doll made her appearance this week in a look that would be unrecognizable to the original. Jenna, created by a French Muslim mother, is a hijabi Barbie.
In tradition with Muslim customs, Jenna wears an abaya, a modest dress that covers her collarbone and that stretches to her wrists and ankles. She comes with a matching scarf meant to be wrapped around her hair as a hijab. In addition to looking the part of a Muslim, Jenna will play it as well: she has the ability to recite 4 Quran verses.
Pulpit & Pen News has the story:
Kirk Cameron was recently in Florida and took the time for a short video at the Orlando airport to give an update on his travels and express a thought he had about the coming Hurricane.
The thought was this:
[My friend] you know, says [Hurricane] Harvey was a once in a lifetime event because the destruction was unprecedented with that hurricane. There’s another one coming up that they say is the largest recorded hurricane on the Atlantic, and the devastation from that, we don’t know how much it’s going to be. But, how should we look at two giant hurricanes coming back to back like this. Do we write it off as coincidence or statistical anomaly?
Cameron then reads from Job 37 and God’s declaration that he saturates clouds, scatters lightning, and makes the clouds turn around and around. The passage also says God does that either to water the Earth or for punishment. Cameron then proceeds…
“This is a spectacular display of God’s immense power. And when God displays his power, it’s not without purpose. We may not know what that purpose is, but it’s not random. We know weather serves the purposes of making us respond to God in humility, awe and repentance.”
Cameron then encouraged people to pray for Floridians.
Christian News reports:
The presiding “bishop” of the apostate Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) opined in an interview this week with the Chicago Sun-Times that Hell is empty because God doesn’t give up on those who reject Him.
Elizabeth Eaton was interviewed on Wednesday by reporter Robert Herguth during his podcast “Faith to Face.”
Herguth asked Eaton a variety of questions during the 42-minute discussion, from whether she has ever had doubts since becoming a minister, to how she has been received as the ELCA’s first female presiding bishop, to what Jesus will look like when He returns, to what she thinks Heaven is like.

Doctors have successfully delivered a baby girl from her mother’s womb after her mother refused recommendations that she abort her unborn child in the midst of a battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer, and instead decided to forgo treatment in order to save her baby.
Doctors at the University of Michigan performed a Cesarean section on Carrie DeKlyen Wednesday night, delivering her daughter, named Life, at a gestation of 24 weeks, 5 days. She weighs 1 pound, 4 ounces.
“Life was delivered at 24 weeks and 5 days at 5:30 pm. She is doing as well as they had hoped,” the Cure 4 Carrie Facebook page announced. “Thank you, Jesus, for this amazing gift of LIFE!”
John Nolte of Breitbart has the story:
In a preview of Sunday’s 60 Minutes interview with former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon, CBS released a segment in which Bannon is asked a question by Charlie Rose that no one in the media ever asks pro-gay marriage, pro-abortion Democrats.
Bannon was asked to reconcile his Catholic faith with those political beliefs in opposition to the church. In this case, it was about the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) strident and, as I wrote Wednesday, hypocritical support of DACA.
Transcript courtesy of CBS News:
Rose: Can I remind you, a good Catholic, that Cardinal [Timothy] Dolan is opposed to what’s happened with DACA? Cardinal Dolan.
Bannon: The Catholic Church has been terrible about this. … The bishops have been terrible about this … Because [they’re] unable to really come to grips with the problems in the church, they need illegal aliens, they need illegal aliens to fill the churches. … They have – they have an economic interest. They have an economic interest in unlimited immigration, unlimited illegal immigration.
Rose: Boy, that’s a tough thing to say about your church.
Bannon: As much as I respect Cardinal Dolan and the bishops on doctrine, this is not doctrine.

We’re posting Breitbart’s piece to show you just how wacky some environmentalists are. Keep in mind that Elizabeth Stephens, who’s clearly a kook, is the Chair of the Art Department at UC Santa Cruz. Tom Ciccotta has the story:
UC Santa Cruz Professor Elizabeth Stephens, a pioneer in the “ecosexual” movement, is encouraging the public to engage in environmentalism by having sex with the Earth.
Stephens, the Chair of the Art Department at UC Santa Cruz, a public university, first garnered public attention four years ago with the release of her documentary Ecosexual Love Story, in which she and others licked trees, rolled around in mud, and engaged in vaguely sexual acts with elements of nature.
Stephens is still promoting her brand of ecosexuality. Just this summer she hosted an “Ecosex Walking Tour” in which she taught participants “25 ways to make love to the Earth, raise awareness of environmental issues, learn ecosexercises, find E-spots, and climax with the planetary clitoris.” Stephens is also slated to premiere her documentary Water Makes Us Wet during an art exhibition in Germany this week.
Kimberly Winston of LifeZette has the details of a new study that says organized religion, including white evangelicalism, is losing numbers:
The future of religion in America is young, non-Christian and technicolor.
Almost every Christian denomination in the U.S. shows signs of growing in diversity as white Christians, once the majority in most mainline Protestant and Catholic denominations, give way to younger members, who tend to be of different races, according to a study released Wednesday, Sept. 6, by the Public Religion Research Institute.
According to Pulpit & Pen News:
Gipsy Smith – who is mentioned by Brown – is responsible for the “start the revival in this circle” analogy often heard by traveling evangelists. Rodney “Gipsy” (it was spelled “Gipsy” by Smith; not Gypsy) Smith was a British evangelist and a member of the troublesome Salvation Army denomination (until they kicked him out for accepting personal gifts of gold jewelry). A widower at 78, Smith made headlines for marrying a 27 year-old. Smith might best be known for the illustration he often gave as a famous evangelist, in which he would draw a circle around himself with a piece of chalk while preaching and pray that revival start with him, inside the circle. He would exhort people to do the same.
Just as he promised during the campaign, Donald Trump is in the process of dismantling the “many, many left-wing remnants of Obama’s term,” says Edward Woodson of LifeZette. He writes:
You have to admit: Liberals are good at playing the victim. Former President Obama’s executive amnesty hasn’t even been around along enough for the Supreme Court to declare it unconstitutional, but as President Donald Trump prepared to announce its end, you’d think the world was ending.
My favorite part was the CEOs, now thoroughly addicted to cheap labor, acting shocked and disappointed that Trump is following through on one of his biggest promises during the campaign.
“There’s no issue that’s more gut-wrenching for us,” one tech exec anonymously told Axios’ Mike Allen, adding that some companies are considering smuggling their illegal alien employees abroad. Here’s an idea: How about take the money you would spend on that and use it to increase the wages of your employees?
