“Even the city’s most notorious trash pile, located between downtown LA’s busy Fashion and Produce districts, continues to be a magnet for rats after it was cleaned up months ago. The rodents can carry typhus-infected fleas, which can spread the disease to humans through bacteria rubbed into the eyes or cuts and scrapes on the skin, resulting in severe flu-like symptoms.”
(Stephen Green – PJ Media) In your typical Third-World megalopolis, basic city functions fall into disrepair, while once-eradicated diseases run rampant — and the local bigwig boasts about saving the world. Continue reading
“In short, the Clinton machine flooded the FBI with pressure — and bad intel — until an investigation of Trump was started. The bureau and its hapless sheriff at the time, James Comey, eventually acquiesced with the help of such Clinton fans as then-FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.”
(John Solomon – The Hill) During the combined two decades she served as a U.S. senator and secretary of State, Hillary Clinton’s patrons regularly donated to her family charity when they had official business pending before America’s most powerful political woman. Continue reading
“This also shows Disney to be an outright traitor that shows no respect for the state and its culture.”
(Wayne Dupree – LifeZette) So let me get this straight: The company that built its brand and business model off children is now promoting the killing of children — and if you don’t kill more of them, they will stop doing business with you.
These people are sick and need to be shamed into the poorhouse, in my view. Continue reading
“Most devastating of all was the culture of secrecy combined with a large population of like-minded and sexually oriented men, who worked against a culture of transparency and moral rigor. Instead, the internal culture facilitated an environment where pedophiles knew they wouldn’t be outed or called to account for their criminal behavior.”
(The Aquila Report) As an almost 30-year church member in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), I have watched and listened with great interest and concern as certain voices in the PCA have been clamoring to allow celibate homosexual pastors and church officers (the so called “Side B”). My concerns stem from my time as a member of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) from birth and my time in a Junior Seminary from thirteen to eighteen. Continue reading
“The point of this article is to expose the rank hypocrisy of these so-called social justice warriors who so desperately want to undermine conservative politics while naming Jesus’ name.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) You would think that the one place you could go to and expect prayer and supplication in the name of Jesus to be unfettered by those who name the name of Jesus would be a Bible-believing Christian church. In today’s “woke” world — especially the woke evangelical world — that is simply not the case. Continue reading
“It was a mind-blowing moment for some Justice Department veterans. Since when do prosecutors hand out certificates of exoneration to the people they investigate? (Answer: They don’t.) Since when has “not exonerated” been an accepted legal outcome — as in “How does the jury find the defendant? We find him not exonerated.” (Answer: Never.)”
(Byron York – Washington Examiner) One of the more unfortunate effects of the Trump-Russia investigation — and there have been many — is the weakening of traditional standards of argument and proof in the public debate over allegations that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 election. (Just for the record: It didn’t. Continue reading
Costi Hinn of For The Gospel offers what he believes are five proactive truths that every pastor-shepherd must preach in order to protect his flock from the abomination known as the New Apostolic Reformation and the wolves who feed the NAR poison to the sheep. He writes:
Remember the one thing that could strip Superman of his unstoppable powers? If this thing was found in the vicinity of the “Man of Steel,” he’d be as helpless as a baby Giraffe on ice. That thing was Kryptonite.
No matter your position on the continuation of gifts that produce signs and wonders, there are certain truths that orthodox Christians have stood together on for millennia. When taught faithfully and proactively, these truths are Kryptonite to destructive doctrines that creep into the church. Continue reading
“Many people are complacent about the so-called ‘Equality Act’ because Republicans control the Senate and won’t allow it to become law – this time. But what if the GOP loses the Senate or the White House in 2020? It’s time to educate the public about this bill’s toxic blend of mad science and totalitarian intent.”
(Robert Knight – Washington Times) Democrats in the House are celebrating Friday’s passage of the Equality Act, a misnamed legal jackhammer that would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to federal civil rights law. Continue reading
The church is to disciple the nations, beginning with evangelism. The church is not the avenue for social justice or legislation of any kind. Yes, of course, the individual believer, as salt and light, is to serve the poor and needy, to seek reconciliation, and to labor for Biblical justice; but the individual believer is still to give evangelism and discipleship the preeminence.
(Al Baker – The Aquila Report) “I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Corinthians 2:2).
At the July 16-25, 1974 International Congress on World Evangelization (Lausanne I), called by Billy Graham, 2300 evangelical leaders from 150 countries gathered to pray and strategize on how to take the gospel to the entire world. The theme of the conference was “Let the Earth Hear His Voice.”…. Continue reading
“With 420 Catholic women’s institutes in the United States alone, it is difficult to get a complete picture of the total number of allegations against nuns. The watchdog group Bishop Accountability has compiled a list of about 100 religious sisters who have been credibly accused, meaning claims against them resulted in a lawsuit or news article.”
(Laura Benshoff – NPR) When Patricia Cahill was 15, she received an unexpected request. A nun who taught at a Catholic high school near her home in Ridgewood, N.J., called her at home and invited her to perform at an upcoming “hootenanny” Mass. Continue reading
“It is sad that the achievements of our Founding Fathers come with a giant asterisk because their zeal for freedom and liberty did not apply to non-whites. Well, a similar asterisk now accompanies King, whose zeal for equal rights did not apply to the woman whose brutal rape he reportedly applauded. If an asterisk is enough to knock down a statue, then King’s statues must be toppled, too.”
(Matt Walsh – Daily Wire) A report in a publication called Standpoint makes some startling claims about civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. We should note that this article is in something called Standpoint, rather than, say, The New York Times, because the American mainstream media did not have the courage for it. Indeed, David Garrow, the award-winning biographer who authored the piece based on information found in FBI documents, was not able to find any outlet in the United States willing to publish the details. Continue reading
“Mueller revealed himself as little more than a clone of James Comey—the smarmy, scheming politician who replaced Mueller as the head of the FBI. Recall that it was Comey who assumed for himself powers that did not belong to him by law when he declared at a 2016 press conference no “reasonable prosecutor” would charge Hillary Clinton with criminal wrongdoing in her mishandling of classified information and unsanctioned use of a secret, private email server to evade public records laws.”
(Sean Davis – The Federalist) If there were any doubts about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s political intentions, his unprecedented press conference on Wednesday should put them all to rest. As he made abundantly clear during his doddering reading of a prepared statement that repeatedly contradicted itself, Mueller had no interest in the equal application of the rule of law. He gave the game, and his nakedly political intentions, away repeatedly throughout his statement. Continue reading
The Lord wants His people out of Alcoholics Anonymous. He wants His people to quit feeding this shimmering, glimmering chameleon of a spiritual system. The Ancient of Days will take care of those in bondage to alcohol if we but give Him the opportunity. How do I know this? It’s right there in the Bible. And so it was for me.
(John Lanagan – The Word Like Fire) Near the small town where I worship, a neighboring church holds Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings. They know the Scriptures that clearly forbid mixing our Savior in with false gods, and yet this has made no difference. They do what they do because that is what they want to do. Continue reading
“Although Chan said that he would put together a team to help him research those he promotes in the future, he has largely dug in his heels on the topic and insists that unity is more important than Biblical truth.”
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) It should be evident to anyone paying attention that, like many charismatics, the Holy Spirit is not at work in Francis Chan. If He were, Chan would have more discernment, which is a gift of the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 5:14, 1 Corinthians 12:10). But instead of exercising any discernment, Chan has chosen to partner himself with the most notorious false teachers on the planet and promote them as brothers in Christ. Continue reading
“Mueller’s hiding behind the canard that he could not charge a sitting president on obstruction makes a mockery of his initial assertion that there was no collusion. Most of us can’t have it both ways. But I guess Mueller can. Or has. I leave it to Jerrold Nadler to explain that to us.”
(Roger L Simon – PJ Media) Robert Mueller’s eight- to nine-minute statement Wednesday morning at the DOJ was designed for one thing only: to avoid having to answer one key question in his testimony. When did you know there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia? Continue reading
“Most episodes of It’s SuperNatural are infomercials for the guest to pitch their products. The products usually teach the viewer some sort of spiritual trick to achieve breakthrough, healing, miracles, manifestations of God’s presence, wealth, and you get the idea. For a donation viewers are granted access to toxic and dangerous materials that do nothing but exploit them and sink their soul deeper into the cesspool of charismania.”
(Heterodox Research Initiative) One major red flag about Michael Brown has to do with who and what he won’t give a red flag. Michael Brown would never tell someone to avoid watching Sid Roth’s It’s SuperNatural because it’s spiritually toxic and dangerous. Continue reading
“The notion too many Christian leaders have today is we must become like the world in order to reach the worldly. Think about it; do liberals ever compromise and become more holy, or do conservatives typically compromise and become more worldly?”
(David Fiorazo) Modern Liberalism cannot coexist with biblical Christianity. Another example of placing social justice above Scripture emerged last week, this time from an alleged Baptist church in Texas. In a commencement benediction at Baylor University in Waco, left-wing pastor, Dan Freemyer denounced “straight white men” and lobbied for the environment – in a prayer. Continue reading
(Marsha West – Christian Research Network) For years I’ve been saying that America is in an all-out spiritual battle. Kids vs. Parents…Sexual deviancy vs. Virtue…Hollywood vs. Family values…Filth vs. Decency…Pro-death vs. Pro-life…Moral relativism vs. Absolute truth…Christian liberalism vs. Christian orthodoxy…Atheism vs. Theism…Evolution vs. Creation…Big government vs. Free enterprise.
You’d think that because of the downright wickedness we’re dealing with in our morally bankrupt culture, Christ followers would wear the whole armor of God 24/7. What I’m referring to is the spiritual armor Paul advises believers to “put on.” Based on this admonition it would seem only a fool would fail to heed Paul’s advice. In Ephesians 6:1-19, he lays out how to arm ourselves to fight the unseen forces of evil. If we yield for a second, we give them the advantage. Continue reading
The Gospel Coalition isn’t really interested in preserving the rich theological history and doctrinal contributions of the Protestant Church — they are hell bent on destroying it.
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) The Gospel Coalition is not about the gospel. That ship sailed years ago. It is a coalition of social activists, many of whom are financially supported by leftist billionaires like George Soros and James Riady, whose sole purpose is to platform the Church to effect political change in the U.S. and abroad. Continue reading
The library director, George Needham, said this on social media: “…it’s very common in our regular teen programming to use the phrase, ‘Teens only, please.’ This is because, within teen development, it’s very important that they feel like they have ownership over a safe space.”
(Linda Harvey – Mission: America) It’s bad enough that some libraries encourage little children to perch on the laps of transvestite males as they hear fables about well-adjusted homosexual families, in the so-called “Drag Queen Story Hours” featured in some communities.
And then those guys turn out to be convicted child molesters, as recently happened in Houston. Continue reading
“Victimology has replaced theology beneath the banner of social justice. To play the victim card in our culture today is like playing the Ace of Spades in a card game. The victim approach to ladder climbing is both politically correct and extremely powerful. The social justice movement, unfortunately, places a clear reading of 1 Timothy 2-3 and the roles of women that are rooted in creation within the category of misogyny. Beth Moore has clearly twisted the Scriptures and used the social justice movement to fuel her agenda. Suddenly, anyone who speaks out against her and this progressive deconstructionist trend are shouted down and labeled as misogynists.”
(Josh Buice – Delivered By Grace) When Molly Marshall was the dean of the school of theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky she likewise served as a pastor of a local church. Upon being forced to resign due to her unbiblical positions, at a candlelight vigil on April 18th 1995, Molly Marshall stated, “The school of theology is without a tenured woman and probably will be as long as the misogynistic forces are unabated,” While we’ve come so far within the SBC, for many, we’ve been moving in the wrong direction. According to Beth Moore: Continue reading
“Secularists seem so intoxicated on their own notion of “freedom” that they are blind to what unfolds in front of their very eyes: such as just like homosexuality, pedophilia is now being touted as a “sexual orientation.” How long before incest hits the road? How much longer before all concepts of decency and decorum are lost to the wild whims of secular ideas?”
(Search Berg – Reformation Charlotte) The foundations of Secularism and Christianity are as different from each other as apples are from oranges—where Christianity is all about submitting to Christ and living life in accordance with His doctrine so as to secure peace in life, Secularism does the exact opposite. Continue reading
“Conversion “diagnostics” can be helpful for those who profess Christ. Like a doctor identifying evidence to confirm a diagnosis, converts should be able to convey what a difference Christ has made in their way of thinking and living. There’s no need for a mandated theological exam with big words (though that’s not a negative thing), but a change in desires and actions should be evident.”
(Costi Hinn – For The Gospel) The conversion and commissioning of Paul the apostle is one that showcases God’s power to save and provides valuable lessons for new believers and their “next steps.” Continue reading
Begg’s ministry claimed that he accepted the invitation without knowing who else would be partnering with him. First, that’s ill-advised and (probably) wrong. It’s certainly undiscerning and in today’s climate of apostasy, is foolish. It’s alsoirresponsible not to know such things.
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) Earlier this week, Pulpit & Pen reported on an upcoming conference in which Alistair Begg will ‘share the stage’ with Beth Moore. Begg is certainly not the first Calvinist and/or more-serious Christian leader to preach alongside the wildly egalitarian Social Justice Warrior and newly-charismatic prophetess. John Piper was perhaps the first respectable leader to preach with Moore, but we were nonetheless disappointed in Begg’s decision. Continue reading
All sins are heinous, but some sins are more heinous than others. Homosexual desire is no less forgivable, but it is more pernicious. If there is no resignation of ordained PCA officers who claim to be gay homosexuals who practice celibacy, then there will be no hope of peace and unity in the PCA.
(Larry E. Ball – The Aquila Report) The Committee to Investigate Memorial Presbyterian Church for Hosting the Revoice 18 Conference only found errors in poor judgment; they found nothing erroneous that “strikes at the vitals of religion.”
An Ad Hoc Committee of Missouri Presbytery of the PCA has come to the defense of one of its own ministers who has just recently and publicly confessed that he is a “Gay Christian” who practices celibacy…. Continue reading
