“Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil.” Apprising Ministries brings you the latest concerning the SBC Convention’s resolution concerning Biblical sexuality, as well as pastor Danny Cortez and his homosexual-approving SBC church.
Christian political writer Gina Miller challenges Christians to speak out against the radical homosexual movement. What lies in store for Christians if “church leaders don’t push back strongly against the militant sodomite activist”? To see what our future holds, Miller advises us to look at what has happened in Denmark.
According to a report in the U.K. Telegraph:
The country’s parliament voted through the new law on same-sex marriage by a large majority, making it mandatory for all churches to conduct gay marriages.
Denmark’s church minister, Manu Sareen, called the vote “historic”.
“I think it’s very important to give all members of the church the possibility to get married. Today, it’s only heterosexual couples.”
Under the law, individual priests can refuse to carry out the ceremony, but the local bishop must arrange a replacement for their church.
The far-Right Danish People’s Party mounted a strong campaign against the new law, which nonetheless passed with the support of 85 of the country’s 111 MPs.
“If ever there was a subject which is almost universally surrounded in falsehoods, deception and misinformation,” says apologist and ethicist Bill Muehlenberg, “it is the topic of homosexuality.”
According to Muehlenberg. the liberal media will not challenge the dangerous homosexual lifestyle for fear of reprisals from the powerful and well-financed homosexual lobby. But there’s hope! Muehlenberg believes that the truth will eventually come out due largely to a few “brave voices being raised” who refuse to cave in to gay activist’s threats and intimidation. We learn the names of four of them in this piece.
Apprising Ministries shows you that for charismaniacs like Osteen, the delusion for unity they receive may well stretch past apostate Rome even to non-Christian cults like Mormonism.
For years now Warren has been actively working to assist Roman Catholic parishes in luring people away from the historic orthodox Christian faith and into apostate Roman Catholicism.
Apprising Ministries documents for you some of this ongoing apostasy of a man whom the Southern Baptist Convention has just rewarded with a prime position from which to teach its pastors at the upcoming SBC pastors convention.
Marsha West, correspondent for the Christian Research Network, informs us of controversial conservative Glenn Beck’s convocation speech at evangelical Liberty University (LU) where he took to the podium and gave a sermon laced with Mormon theology.
When Beck learned that a large number of Christians, including some LU donors, came out in protest, he became outraged and used his position as a popular TV/radio host and his news outlet, The Blaze, as a bully pulpit to go after his critics.
Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Baptist Theological Seminary, expresses his concern that, when it comes to the sin of homosexuality, more and more churches are bending to political correctness by declaring that the Church must accept practicing homosexuals.
Dr. Mohler reminds us that:
A church will either believe and teach that same-sex behaviors and relationships are sinful, or it will affirm them. Eventually, every congregation in America will make a public declaration of its position on this issue. It is just a matter of time (and for most churches, not much time) before every congregation in the nation faces this test.
Apprising Ministries looks at this event in light of Beth Moore’s talk of a coming “outpouring” of the Spirit, Rick Warren’s advancing unity with the Church of Rome, and the pope’s friend Tony Palmer playing the pope’s message of unity at the ministry conference of charismaniac leader Kenneth Copeland.
PC 2014 is coming up in just a couple of weeks and is the lead-in for the annual SBC general conference immediately following.
Apprising Ministries shows you that, rather than rebuking Warren’s sinful ecumenicism, instead the SBC is rewarding him with this prime spot to share his warped wisdom and further influence its pastors.
Christianity Today is reporting that C.J. Mahaney and Joshua Harris, both key figures in the history of Sovereign Grace Ministries (SGM), have resigned from The Gospel Coalition (TGC), a parachurch organization of which both were members, following the May 2014 conviction of former SGM youth leader Nathaniel Morales of multiple counts of child sexual abuse.
Any of our regular readers know of my deep and abiding love for hymns. I am constantly finding and downloading new hymns: some old, some new, some contemporary, some traditional, some gospely and bluesy, some on the pipe organ, and everything in between. I am also constantly being surprised at hearing from readers who report that they have had little to no exposure to hymns. With that in mind, I’d like to share my current iPod playlist, for anyone who would like to check out a few of these hymns and see what they’ve been missing.
