Jen Hatmaker Joins Radical Pro-Choice Politician to Promote ‘Women’s Rights’

“Jen Hatmaker is not the first professing Christian to embrace the radical leftist pro-choice politician. Lecrae, who is known as the “rapper who happens to be Christian,” has also departed biblical conservatism in favor of progressive social activism and embraced Stacy Abrams.”

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  Jen Hatmaker, close personal friend of Beth Moore who is famous for her television show on HGTV, has teamed up with some of the most radical feminist progressive liberals in the country to promote women empowerment. Among the line up is radical pro-choice politician, Stacy Abrams, who, back in April, denounced Georgia’s pro-life “Heartbeat Bill” as “evil.” Continue reading

Trump’s Total Culture War

“[T]he real source of Trump derangement syndrome is his desire to wage a multifront pushback — politically, socially, economically and culturally — against what might be called the elite postmodern progressive world.”

(Victor Davis Hanson – Real Clear Politics)  Donald Trump is waging a nonstop, all-encompassing war against progressive culture, in magnitude analogous to what 19th-century Germans once called a Kulturkampf.

As a result, not even former President George W. Bush has incurred the degree of hatred from the left that is now directed at Trump. For most of his time in office, Trump, his family, his friends and his businesses have been investigated, probed, dissected and constantly attacked. Continue reading

Climate Strike Kids Would All Fail This Elementary, Global Warming Test…

I believe that all children should be free to bunk off school to attend today’s Climate Strike. But only if they can get at least 80 percent of the answers right on this climate quiz prepared by the Global Warming Policy Foundation. Here is a taster…

(John Delingpole – Breitbart)  Across the Western world tens of thousands of brainwashed kids are bunking off school in what has misleadingly been described as a ‘Climate Strike.’

No. A strike involves the withholding of productive labour. These kids are simply playing truant using the best ‘dog ate my homework’ excuse evah: ‘If I don’t do this, the planet will die!!’ Continue reading

John MacArthur Calls Tullian Tchividjian a Heretic, Created a Theology to Accommodate His Sin

Watch the video!

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  John MacArthur is one of the foremost living defenders of the faith in this day and age and one of the few well-known pastors left who aren’t afraid to call out false teachers. Recently, MacArthur preached a sermon at a Master’s Seminary chapel on Jude — defending the faith and calling out false teachers — whereby he called out the fallen pastor Tullian Tchividjian on his heresy of antinomianism.

People struggling with mental illness shouldn’t be in church leadership, Jarrid Wilson’s friend says

Photo by Harvest Christian Fellowship

God has given us clear instructions in Scripture that offer protection to His church. Every time we decide to break His commands, we only break ourselves. A pastor is not simply someone who is willing. A pastor is not simply someone who is gifted. A pastor is not simply someone who is educated. He is a man who meets all God’s qualifications. This is not legalism or biblical militancy. This is safety for God’s church. It’s time to wake up.”

(Leonardo Blair – The Christian Post)  Dale Partridge, a pastor and house church planter and “true” friend of late California Pastor Jarrid Wilson, says Wilson had expressed a desire to step down from his high pressure role as associate pastor prior to his suicide. Continue reading

Why AR-15s are the plastic straws of the gun world

“How many guns weren’t designed as “weapons of war”? Bolt-action rifles were once state-of-the-art weapons of war. So was the flintlock. Go back even further, and clubs were weapons of war, and many people are still killed with them today. Should we outlaw baseball bats?”

(Selwyn Duke – Renew America)  How did AR-15s become the plastic straws of the gun world? It’s simple: Demagogues need scapegoats. Yet just as banning plastic straws won’t make a dent in the ocean-polluting plastics problem, banning “assault rifles” (which aren’t) won’t save even one life. Continue reading

‘Banned Books Week’ Protects Low Quality Trash

The problem is not just the library, but within classrooms, where teachers give students suggested reading lists. DeGroff paints a picture that will leave any concerned adult heartbroken but also angry. Current themes for younger children include many titles that promote gender confusion and homosexual parenting but also the distorted messages of other “social justice” agendas.

[Warning: graphic content]

(Linda Harvey – Mission” America)  You take your children to the library. What a wholesome place, brimming with sweet stories and mind-expanding ideas as kids discover the delights within the covers of a book. Oh, the love of reading! Nothing here but candy canes and lollipops. Continue reading

In GQ Interview, Brad Pitt Admits Atheism Is Just an Act, Doesn’t Really Exist

“Of course, Pitt is just affirming the Bible. Atheism is an act. Deep down, there are no atheists. There are only spiritualists and supernaturalists who reject truth as a means to place themselves as Lord and Savior of their own life.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  Atheists claim that they don’t believe in God. But God, according to the Bible, doesn’t believe in atheists.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

Big Trump-Russia report is coming, but how much will remain secret?

“The bottom line is: How much of Horowitz’s findings, and later Durham’s, will be made public? Americans need to know the lengths to which the nation’s law enforcement and intelligence agencies went in pursuit of the theory that Russia and the Trump campaign conspired to fix the presidential election. The Mueller investigation later concluded that no such conspiracy could be established.”

(Byron York – Washington Examiner)  On May 23 of this year, President Trump gave Attorney General William Barr “full and complete authority” to declassify information relating to the actions of the FBI and intelligence community in investigating the 2016 Trump campaign. Continue reading

The Ignorance Factor

“The uninformed and/or apathetic American picks up on this.  No longer are politicians who deny due process or advocate Constitutional violations even challenged.  Now they stand on debate stages smiling at press moderators who have no problem with their radicalism and even, in the case of late-term abortion, embrace it.”

(Bill O’Reilly)  Many Americans, including this one, are perplexed by some disturbing opinions being put forth in this country.

Let’s start with a recent Gallup Poll that says 43 percent of Americans, including 52 percent of democrats, believe it was a mistake to send U.S. troops to Afghanistan after the 9/11 terror attack. Continue reading

Reminder: No Meaningful Evidence Corroborates Any of the Kavanaugh Accusations, Several of Which Fell Apart

“Evidence matters.  Any politician parlaying these unproven or discredited claims into an impeachment demand is a shameless, dangerous demagogue.  There should be repercussions for such obscene recklessness.”

(Guy Benson – TownHall)  Now that we’re revisiting the Kavanaugh mess — bring it on, I wrote this morning — it seems worthwhile to revisit the known facts of each supposedly ‘credible’ accusation leveled against him.  This insight strikes me as exactly correct, in terms of assessing the tactics, motives, and goals of the smear brigade.  It’s a deeply cynical pattern: Continue reading

The Fading Light Of Pop-Christianity

Screenshot from a Hillsong music event dance number that included near-nude women covered by bath towels.

“The Hillsong brand of Christianity is one marked with pursuing earthly treasures, entertainment, celebrity, and sensationalism.  I like to call it “pop-Christianity”. Drawing from all the entertainment and commercial successes of the 21st century, pop-Christianity appeals to the temporal at the expense of the eternal.”

(Chris Saenz – Post Christian Era)  Many Christians were shocked in August when longtime Hillsong songwriter, Marty Sampson announced that he was “losing his faith”.

In a Twitter post (that has since been removed), Marty claims that he is “not in anymore” and wants “genuine truth. Not the “I Just Believe It” kind of truth”. His list of reasons that Christianity is “not for me”, according to Sampson, read like a laundry list of teenage rebellions to Christianity during youth group: Continue reading

NYC Repeals Prohibition Against Reparative Therapy Because It’s Unconstitutional

Obviously I didn’t want to repeal this. I don’t want to be someone who is giving in to these right-wing groups. But the Supreme Court has become conservative; the Second Circuit, which oversees New York, has become more conservative.

(Pulpit & Pen)  “The law is a gross intrusion into the fundamental rights of counselors and clients. Every person should have access to the counselor of his or her choice. No government has the authority to prohibit a form of counseling simply because it does not like the religious or moral beliefs of a particular counselor or client.” Continue reading

A Response to ‘From Celibate Gay Poster Child to Future Gay Husband’

The title of his article, “From Celibate Gay Poster Child to Future Gay Husband,” affords a key and primary clue as to why this happened.  It happened because he never renounced identifying himself with a sinful propensity or proclivity.  He failed to see his sinful bent was condemned by God, the Father; atoned for by God, the Son; and he was washed and sanctified by God, the Holy Spirit.

(Helen Louise Herndon – The Aquila Report)  The above titled article appeared in The Aquila Report and originated on the author’s blog entitled, “Queer Liturgy.” As a gay man, he claims he always upheld the traditional view of marriage and sexuality…. Continue reading

A timely call for a ‘charismatic code of ethics’

Rule Number 1: All charismatics leaders, I am challenging you to sign on to the charismatic code of ethics. Rule number 1 being no claims to miraculous healings will be made public by any charismatic leaders until the healings have been verified by independent third party medical doctors.

(Churchwatch Central)  In his latest YouTube broadcast, Ps. Chris Rosebrough is calling for the establishment of a ‘Charismatic Code of Ethics’. Many ex-charismatics will appreciate Ps. Rosebrough’s call for this ‘code’ because of the spiritual damage they experienced before the Lord drew them out to greener pastures and still waters. The first ‘code of ethics’ call is on the ‘claims of the miraculous’. Ps. Rosebrough states: Continue reading

Can You Be A Christian Without Going To Church?

“One reads the scenes in heaven and it’s never, never about being an isolationist! Those scenes around the throne are always with the masses of people redeemed by the blood of Christ, who share the joys of His presence together forever (e.g. Rev 5:11–14; 7:9–17).”

(Phil Newton – Founders Ministries) I’ve heard it many times. “Well, you don’t have to attend church to be a Christian.” “Attending church doesn’t make you a Christian!” “I don’t need the church; I worship God in my own way. Continue reading

The Myth of Sexual Orientation

“The problem is that so many have bought the myth that they are intrinsically homosexuals … and they have no hope of changing.”  Dr. R.C. Sproul

“Why would a child of God who has been justified by the blood and righteousness of Christ alone, adopted into God’s family, and freed from slavery to sin by the powerful regenerating work of God in their life fight to apply such an abominable label, homosexual, to themselves? Our Lord bled and died not only to forgive people of the sin of homosexuality but also to liberate them from its enslaving power.”

(Patrick Hines – The Aquila Report) In an excellent lecture on homosexuality still available from Ligonier Ministries from long ago, the late Dr. R. C. Sproul said:

First of all, to deal with the homosexual is one of the most difficult problems we have to deal with. It would be so much easier for all concerned to just ignore the problem and say to people and to the world and to the homosexual, “Look, it’s ok. It’s alright. You’re just left-handed. It’s fine.”… Continue reading

Christians, Shake Your Heads: Vague Self-Help Book Spends 15 Straight Months Atop Bestseller List

“Hollis isn’t on the bestseller list because her book shares any great insight, wisdom, or truth. It’s because Hollis’s advice is wisdom to the world. It’s the best the world can offer. Here’s some therapy. Here’s a pill. Here’s some pretendy-God-talk. Feel better about yourself.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  Even the BuzzFeed knows this book isn’t Christian.

An “amalgam of stories, tough-love advice from a woman who has been there, and vaguely biblical encouragement,” Girl, Wash Your Face was the 2nd most popular book of 2018 on Amazon. It has now topped the ECPA Christian Bestsellers list for 15 months straight. Continue reading

‘The Con’

“Elizabeth Warren is a menace to traditional American society.  Her vision would curtail individual freedom drastically.  She is far more dangerous than any storm.”

(Bill O’Reilly)  Elizabeth Warren is a dangerous person because she has little concept of the truth or responsible governance.  The senator from Massachusetts apparently does not believe in honest reporting about herself or public policy.  In short, she’ll pretty much say anything.

Recently, Ms. Warren put forth her assessment of the current “climate crisis.” Continue reading

Polyamory: Limitless or Limiting?

Married households as the ideal is now being called into question. The latest debate is about whether it should be that marriage produces better outcomes. The argument is that with the right government policies, any conceivable family structure could be at least as good as marriage.

(Joseph Horton – The Aquila Report)  The Gottman Institute is one of the premiere organizations promoting evidence-based approaches to couple/marital relationships. The institute notes that it has” developed an approach that not only supports and repairs troubled marriages and committed relationships but strengthens happy ones.” The approach has been used with both opposite sex and same-sex couples, but the focus has always been on couples. Continue reading

Michael Brown Defends the Worst of the Worst Blasphemer and Idolater

“The problem with men like this is that they want to speak orthodox language. They want to give a facade of orthodoxy, giving lip-service to the gospel and to the Bible, but they twist it just enough to make it difficult to detect. They will say they love Jesus and that Jesus is the only way — but their Jesus is a different Jesus.” 

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  Michael Brown is the world’s premier apologist for the ancient heresy of Montanism. Montanism is the heresy that teaches that certain spiritual gifts, such as prophecy, continue today and that it is possible to receive direct, divine revelation from God apart from Scripture….

Beth Moore Makes Habit of Using Acronyms For Cuss Words, Rebukes Her ‘Self-Promoting’ ‘Fellow Leaders’

“There is no doubt that she has defended her Queendom like no other in modern history when it comes to her status and notoriety among her peers.” 

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  Beth Moore loves attention. A lot. Beth Moore is the Southern Baptist darling who single-handedly led a movement to take down a long-standing leader of the Southern Baptist conservative resurgence and seminary leader, Paige Patterson, all in the name of feminism, intersectionality, and general all-round wokeness.
