Project Veritas Catches Deep State Redhanded

“I know opponents of President Donald Trump roll their eyes in ridicule at the mere suggestion of a deep state committed to undermining Trump’s agenda. That’s the stuff of paranoid conspiracy theorists or unhinged Trumpublican tribalists, they say. Well, James O’Keefe, and his Project Veritas, has shown, again, that there is a “there” there.”

(David Limbaugh – Daily Wire)  We’ve long known that unelected leftist bureaucrats embedded in the bowels of the federal government have been lawlessly targeting conservatives and abusing their power to thwart the agenda of duly elected Republican policymakers. The proof keeps pouring in. Continue reading

American Academy of Pediatrics guidance recommends sex changes for children who identify as transgender

“A controversial cover story in The Atlantic this summer on transgenderism in young people gave accounts of a number of “detransitioners,” people who had identified as transgender and then returned to their biological gender after realizing other issues were at the root of their discomfort, and “desisters,” young people whose parents put the breaks on transition to work on other mental and emotional health issues only to find the gender dysphoria eventually dissipated.”

(Kelly Crossland – World)  The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released updated guidance on Monday recommending pediatricians support name, appearance, and sex changes for children who identify as transgender. But the recommendations ignore important research about underlying mental health issues, social contagion, and desistance in gender dysphoric children and teens. Continue reading

What’s the Main Concern for Christian Parents When It Comes to Gender?

“The very first chapter of God’s revelation to us tells us that God intentionally made two sexes that are complementary. This wasn’t arbitrary; it was so we could fulfill His design for us to fill the earth with other people who would love and worship God.”

(Brian Seagraves – Stand To Reason)  Recent studies indicate that only about 0.5% of the U.S. population identifies as transgender. Yet, every parent needs to be concerned about the effect transgenderism will have on their children. If the percentage of people who are transgender is so small, why do all parents need to be so concerned?

Pope Francis Welcomes Bono After He Campaigned For Abortion In Ireland

“We haven’t figured out what we are going to do together,” Bono said, “but we sort of have a crush on each other.”

(Paul Bois – Daily Wire) As Pope Francis remains silent regarding accusations that he covered up for an allegedly abusive cardinal, he has welcomed into his company none other than U2 frontman Bono, who most recently campaigned for the legalization of abortion in Ireland.

The Pope did not address Bono’s support for abortion in the once-Catholic country during their half-hour session together, according to the rock singer. Instead, the Pope “let the conversation go where it wanted to go” and was “incredibly gracious with his time, his concentration.” Continue reading

The Gigantic Problem Beneath the Really Big Problem

Something is true because it’s actually true-whether you like it or not.  Something is false because it’s actually false-whether you like it or not. 

Has the American Evangelical Church abandoned God’s Word? According to Steven Kozar of Messed Up Church, God’s Word has been abandoned. In a letter he wrote, Kozar addresses this along with other issues in the visible Church, plus he shares many things he wonders about that other Christians wonder about, too. And he asks some excellent questions. Here’s one example, “Isn’t it a strange coincidence that this pastor suddenly changed his view about an important issue and adopted the exact same viewpoint of the surrounding culture?”

Now to Steve’s letter, where you will learn what he believes is the most GIGANTIC problem in the Evangelical Church: Continue reading

Being Berean – 8 Steps for Comparing Teaching to Scripture

Bible study author, speaker and blogger, Michelle Lesley, has come up with 8 steps every Christian should take in order to become what those of us involved in a discernment ministry refer to as a “Berean.” As Berean Research points out in their Discernment White Paper (which will help you guard against error):

Christians who are spiritually discerning are able to properly distinguish between true and false teaching. Those with discernment have wisdom. Moreover, in the Bible we’re told that a true believer possesses the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:15-16)

“It is the great privilege of Christians, that they have the mind of Christ revealed to them by his Spirit,” reminds Bible expositor Matthew Henry. Continue reading

Charisma Magazine reports on why Bill Johnson didn’t immediately shut down ‘grave sucking’

“Bill Johnson often uses his pulpit to ‘virtue signal’ to his congregation how they need to be wary of the demonic yet does nothing to discipline his leaders and students for dabbling in occult activity.”

(Churchwatch Central)  We advise our readers that ‘Charisma Magazine’ exists to promote the cause of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). Included in the NARisma article below, you will read of other apostles involved in the International Coalition of Apostolic Leaders (ICAL) and Bethel Church. Jesus Culture founder Liebscher addressed several controversies surrounding Bethel Church – including grave sucking.

Why We’re all Responsible for the Scandals in the Church

According to Julie Roys, all Christians must take the blame for the scandals–and there are many–plaguing the Church. With homosexual pedophiles being publicly “outed,” the Roman Catholic Church and its current pope have a whole host of problems to deal with and lot of ‘splainin to do.  There are plenty of scandals these days, and evangelicals have had their fair share, too.  Roys’ tackles what’s going on in the evangelical community: “From scandals involving Bill Hybels to Mark Darling to Sovereign Grace Ministries and Bob Jones University, it’s clear that we have our own problems.”

Indeed we do.  Problems abound in the RCC and evangelicalism as well. So, is there a solution to all the “issues” in the visible Church? Roys believes there is.  You ask, “What are the solutions?” Keep reading…

Study: Half Of All Transgender Female Teens Have Attempted Suicide

The study raises serious questions about how families, schools, doctors, government, and the media should grapple with the increasing number of children who label themselves transgender.

(Kelsey Harkness – The Federalist)  One in every two transgender adolescents who are female but identify as male has attempted suicide in the past year, according to a new study. The study was published in Pediatrics, the official peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Continue reading

Baptists, Presbyterians, and Methodists Join March FOR Abortion in Kentucky

The marchers, part of a 30-city effort across the nation, also challenged the notion that abortion or homosexuality were important issues. The Higher Ground Moral Declaration, a statement put together by the clergy, said, “We challenge the position that the preeminent moral issues today are about prayer in public schools, abortion, and homosexuality.”

(Pulpit & Pen) Pro-abortion clergy members held a rally in Kentucky earlier this week. On Monday, September 10, the Higher Ground Moral Day of Action was held to promote the abortion of human beings. Clergy members from the Anglicans, Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, and Unitarian-Universalists were among those who gathered to support abortion in the name of Christianity. Over one-hundred clergy members were in attendance. … Continue reading

Christian meditation: what’s biblical and what’s not (Reprise)

FLASHBACK FRIDAY

This article by CRN managing editor Marsha West was first published in September 2014.

In Joshua 1:8 God said: “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.” So, what exactly did God have in mind when He told Joshua to meditate on His word? Well, we can be certain of one thing. The Lord was not suggesting that Joshua sit in the lotus position repeating a mantra until he attained an altered state of consciousness.  “These help bring one into states other than normal waking consciousness, in which a person becomes open to mystical experience, the spirit realm, or cosmic consciousness,” warns Bill Muehlenberg.

Welcome to the New (Contemplative) Christianity – Breath In . . . Breath Out

“If you are someone who is aware of the dangers and the true panentheistic, interspiritual nature of contemplative prayer, you have probably noticed that contemplative spirituality has moved from its infancy stage in the church to what appears to becoming the norm.” 

(Lighthouse Trails)  The acceptance of contemplative prayer has hit an all-time high in the church. And is it any wonder? Christian media, Christian publishers, pastors, mission societies, Bible societies, authors, radio hosts, youth leaders, women’s group leaders, and Christian ministry leaders are all promoting it more than ever. … Continue reading

Kids Tutored in ‘Pleasure’ Despite STD Epidemic

According to Linda Harvey, there’s a new trend in “comprehensive sexuality education”: teaching youngsters about “pleasure.”

The group, promoting pleasure, is planning an October conference in San Diego. Harvey reports what’s on their agenda:

So let’s center pleasure in adolescent sex ed. Let’s assemble a new language for the field that fosters authentic conversations in classrooms—conversations centered not on plumbing and pathology, but on pleasure.”{Emphasis added}

This is just a small part of what progressive perverts have in store for America’s children. So naturally Harvey wants to know what kind of wicked adults do this to kids.  She reveals the answer in a recent blog post over at MissionAmerica. She also offers a solution. And then she asks “Can we do this?

Here’s Linda Harvey’s article. It’s sexually explicit, so brace yourself: Continue reading

Memo to K-12 students: Resist

“Consider for a few minutes what they’ve done with you so far. After all these years sitting in classrooms, what have you learned? Anything?? Do you know where Japan is on a map? Do you know what 8 times 9 is? Do you know why Benjamin Franklin and Napoleon are considered exceptionally fascinating people? Do you know what happened in 1776? Do you know how many ounces are in a pound?” 

(Bruce Deitrick Price – Renew America) Okay, kids, gather round the campfire. There is something you need to know. Something scary.

You are a participant in a vast psychological war. Believe it or not, you are the enemy in this war. You are the primary target. Continue reading

Kicking off more contempt for America

Is it any wonder that “everyday Americans” get the impression that the ruling elites who dictate culture don’t particularly care for them or America?

(Robert Knight – The Washington Times)  What is it with our ruling elites? How did they come to have so much disdain for America? Some recent events have yet again brought this unfortunate situation to the surface.

Let’s start with Nike, the Portland, Oregon-based sportswear megacompany. It did not become a Fortune 100 corporation by chance or careless management. Continue reading

Roman Catholics Blame Pedophile Scandal on Gay Conspiracy to Hurt Church

“The Roman Catholic Church has had three-quarters of a century of warnings about the pedophile problem and the Vatican has made promises to protect the public from their pedophile priests for three-quarters of a century. And yet, Roman Catholics have blamed the recent pedophilia scandal on a secret conspiracy of gays to invade the church and molest children, with the intention of hurting the church’s reputation.

(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) If you threw a rock into a crowd of Roman Catholic priests, you would hit a pedophile.” Continue reading
