The Conflict of Two Natures

24 Wretched man that I am! Who will set me free from the body of this death? Romans 7:24 (NASB) 

This is written to Christians, that is, those who were dead in their trespasses and sins in which they formerly walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. Among them they too all formerly lived in the lusts of their flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest…. Continue reading

Democrats OK with fines, prison, and mandates for vaccine deniers: Poll

(Paul Bedard – Washington Examiner) Nearly two years after former President Donald Trump tossed politics into the nation’s battle against the coronavirus, the partisan divide appears to have grown, with Republicans fighting mandates and Democrats calling for harsh punishments for those who refuse to get vaccinated.

In an expanded survey of the public’s view of mandates and punishments to get people vaccinated, Rasmussen Reports found that Democrats even support fines, home confinement, and prison for those who fight the government on masks and shots

Over several questions in the survey for the Heartland Institute, the differences in how Republicans and Democrats view the crisis were stark. View article →

Israeli Study Finds the 3rd and 4th Shots Don’t Work Against Omicron

While the vaccine protected well against the Alpha and Delta variants, “for Omicron it’s not good enough.” 

(Mary Dowling – Independent Sentinel) A second booster shot, the fourth shot, of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine-induced antibodies probably not high enough to combat Omicron, Israeli researchers said Monday.

Sheba Medical Center has been studying 150 health care workers who received a second booster, or a fourth shot. Continue reading

‘The Chosen’ Biblical Consultant met Christ via New Age/Eastern Meditation?

(John Lanagan – The Word Like Fire) Many of the people involved with The Chosen are now very influential–Christians listen to them. Which is proving more and more unfortunate as some things these folks are involved with or advocate are far from biblical.

As Don Veinot notes, “If Richard Rohr, the Eastern practices of Contemplative Prayer and the Enneagram are spiritual tools that those associated with The Chosen admire and advocate, fans are very likely to trust these “tools” as safe and helpful in their personal spiritual pursuits. That would be a tragedy.” Continue reading

Chosen In Christ Before the Foundation of the World

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, 4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love 5 He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved. – Ephesians 1:3-14 (NASB) Read verses 7-14 and Romans 8:29-30 on the site.

In this post we will look at Ephesians 1:3-14 and Romans 8:29-30. In these two passage are found three Greek words that have been the source of large numbers of polemic works and, in my own experience, I have been accused of holding to doctrines that I do not hold to (nor do any hold to that I know of) by Synergists constructing straw men in order to attack them in an attempt to make it look as if they are defeating the Doctrines of Grace to which I do hold dear and the Monergistic faith through which I know I am saved.

If limiting the unvaxxed is wise, what about limiting fat people?

You “may only leave home for three reasons — medical treatment, including Covid testing or vaccination — for essential goods and services, like groceries, power tokens, and medications – [and] to provide care or support to a family member or person who cannot support themselves.” Ja, mein Führer!

(Selwyn Duke – Renew America) For the record, I’ve nothing against our friendly-fronted friends. Why, my favorite philosopher, G.K. Chesterton, reportedly weighed in at close to 400 pounds. Yet the reality is that the horizontally challenged have something in common with the “unvaccinated.” Continue reading

Thousands of American Pastors Preach in Solidarity With Canadian Christians Crushed by Demonic New Law

(Protestia) Thousands of pastors and clergy across North American devoted their Sunday morning service to preaching and presenting a clear and unapologetic sermon on biblical sexuality, standing in solidarity with their Canadian brethren who have come face to face with a government and culture hell-bent on destroying themselves and their citizens.

The initiative was spearheaded by the Liberty Coalition Canada and was promoted by Pastor John MacArthur, who tweeted it out. Continue reading

Family Fights for Ivermectin for Dying Loved One, Courts Say ‘No’

“Let’s also not forget that Dr. Malone said on Joe Rogan’s podcast that ivermectin, when purchased in bulk, costs less than 01. cent per dose. How can big pharma make millions of dollars at that price?”

(Kevin Downey JR- PJ Media) Daniel Pisano is dying of COVID-19. He’s been on a ventilator in Florida for 28 days now at the Mayo Clinic. His doctors give him a less than 5% chance of survival.

His wife and son want him treated with the COVID plan recommended by Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC). It involves using ivermectin. They want Dr. Eduardo Balbona to treat their family member. The Mayo Clinic refused. The family went to court, hoping the court would force the clinic to allow an outside doctor to treat Pisano. Judge Marianne Aho decided against it.

They appealed that decision and lost that court battle, too. They don’t get to decide what course to take for the 70-year-old Pisano. View article →

Losing Your Life for the Sake of Christ

34 And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. 35 For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul? 37 For what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38 (NASB) 

Jesus is coming back soon. Are you ready? Are you trusting in man-made or self-made religion to be what God will recognize as sufficient so that Christ will be your Advocate before the Father when you are judged? Without Christ as your Advocate, you will have no defense. How does Christ become our Advocate? How do we know if He is our Advocate? Let us examine Christ’s own words about this. Continue reading

Are you in God’s Light or the World’s Darkness?

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. 5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. 6 There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light. John 1:1-34 (NASB) Read verses 9-34 on the site.

The New Testament book of John is profound. The thirty-four opening verses (above) set the stage for us by making sure we understand whom Jesus Christ really is. Who is He? He is God! He is the Word, the Logos, who preexisted creation…. Continue reading

LA’s Horrific Train Robberies

“Between October 2020 and October 2021, train robberies have picked up exponentially by a whopping 356%.” 

(Independent Sentinel) Thousands of empty Amazon, UPS and other packages full of goods are robbed from trains and thousands are discarded on train tracks in Los Angeles.

Medical equipment, designer handbags, luggage, throw pillows, airline parts, children’s artwork, even a new wine fridge sit on the train tracks discarded creating trash as far as the eyes can see, CBS News reports. Continue reading

Dr. Peter McCullough: Official COVID ‘narrative has crumbled’

The vaccines should be pulled off the market, they clearly are not solving the problem

(Art Moore – WND) Dr. Peter McCullough – a renowned cardiologist and highly published medical scientist whose confrontation of the government’s COVID-19 policies has drawn more than 40 million views on Joe Rogan’s podcast – told WND in a video interview Thursday night the official pandemic narrative that has been fiercely guarded by establishment media and social-media censors is “completely crumbling.” Continue reading

Nick Searcy Blows the Lid Off the Jan 6. Narrative With ‘Capitol Punishment’

“Searcy’s idea for the movie with filmmaker and director Chris Burgard began when the two men attended the Jan. 6 rally because they “believed the election had been stolen” stolen from Donald Trump. Searcy told me on my Adult in the Room Podcast that they figured any story they told would be about the typical anti-Trump media malpractice. But, he told me, that idea went out the window when they witnessed agents provocateur pretending to be Trump supporters.”

(Victoria Taft – PJ Media) Nick Searcy was at the huge Trump rally on Jan. 6, 2021, in Washington, D.C., and was so unnerved and shaken by what he saw that day that he made a movie about it. The actor/producer/director’s movie, Capitol Punishment, is the most complete story about that day and its aftermath that anyone has attempted to date. It’s a must-watch, even if you think you know all there is to know about that day. Continue reading

Biden’s America: As Inflation Soars, Here Are the Items That Will Burn the Biggest Hole in Your Wallet

Joe Biden “I did that” sticker on gas pump.

“Social media users have been documenting the lack of supplies at their local supermarkets with photos accompanied by the hashtag #BareShelvesBiden.”

(Grant Atkinson – The Western Journal) In the first year of President Joe Biden’s tenure, consumer prices have risen nearly every month.

That trend continued in December, when inflation jumped at its fastest pace in nearly 40 years.

According to CNBC, the consumer price index rose an additional 0.5 percent last month for a 7 percent year-over-year increase compared with December 2020. Continue reading

The Supreme Court’s Incoherent COVID Mandate Rulings

“This CMS decision comes as the Democrats, the CDC, and their stenographers in the media are finally beginning to trickle out a little truth about COVID – the truth that their handmaidens in Big Tech have spent the last two years claiming was “misinformation.” Scores of people have been censored and defamed by these same tyrants for saying that positive test cases are not the illness, natural immunity is the best immunity, the shots don’t seem to be working as advertised, the asymptomatic spread isn’t a thing, kids have a near-zero chance of contracting this disease, the U.S. COVID death count numbers are junk, vaccines don’t prevent transmission, it’s not a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” and on and on.”

(Victoria Taft – PJ Media) Here’s the quick and dirty take of the U.S. Supreme Court’s two COVID-shot mandate decisions on Thursday: If one works for a private company with more than 100 employees, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) may not order them to get jabbed with a COVID shot, but if you’re a health care worker at a health facility that receives Medicare and Medicaid funding, you can….

Republican Sen. Marshall plans to introduce ‘Fauci Act’ after doctor called him a ‘moron’

Bill would require list of all confidential filers within government whose financial disclosures are not public

(Jon Brown – Fox News) Sen. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., is planning to introduce legislation named after Dr. Anthony Fauci after the nation’s top infectious diseases expert made headlines for calling Marshall “a moron” on a hot mic earlier this week. Continue reading

Taken Captive

8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. Colossians 2:8 (NASB) 

When we do word studies in the Greek New Testament it is vital that we pay very close attention to the verb tenses. From these we learn that some statements are commands (imperatives) while others, which some Bible translations render as if they are commands, are actually statements of fact (indicatives or aorists)….

Supreme Court Rejects Biden’s OSHA Vaccine Mandate on Private Employers; Upholds CMS Mandate

(Breitbart) The U.S. Supreme Court blocked President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on large private businesses through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) on Thursday, but upheld a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate.

The decision on the OSHA mandate was 6-3; the decision on the CMS mandate was 5-4, with Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joining the court’s three Democratic appointees in upholding it. Continue reading

What Happens to Your Soul When You Die?

(Kim Riddlebarger – Ligonier Ministries) We’ve all thought about it. What happens the moment we take our last breath, our heart stops beating, and our soul departs from our now dead body? Truth be told, most of us fear dying, even if we do not fear death. Dying is often a painful struggle. Dying often occurs in a sterile, clinical environment and is usually an ugly process. However, by trusting in the promise that death means entrance into eternal life in the presence of the Lord, as well as trusting in the power of Christ to raise the dead, Christians need not fear the outcome of death even if we experience trepidation regarding the process of dying. Continue reading

See the grafts on the site

There have been 298 Hydroxychloroquine studies that show a 64% improvement in patients for COVID-19 patients.

Despite the science, Dr. Fauci and the medical elites have blocked the use of these effective treatments for coronavirus patients.  Continue reading

Lifeway Still Peddling False Teachers Including ‘Gay Christianity’ Revoice Resources

Check out some of the books LifeWay is peddling to Christian consumers, books that are chock-full of heresy and steeped in the world of the occult. The books are written by false teachers, a.k.a. wolves in sheep’s clothing.  

(Reformation Charlotte) Six years ago, a small but growing discernment blog broke the story that Alex Malarkey–also known as The Boy Who Came Back From Heavenhad recanted his story and said that he made it all up. The blog, Pulpit & Pen, was at the time run by Southern Baptists who were heavily involved in Southern Baptist life…. Continue reading

Right Now Counts Forever

6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord— 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight— 8 we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord. 9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad. 2 Corinthians 5:6-10 (NASB) 

Pragmatism is an ugly, profane word. Oh, I know that to some professing Christians that it is their modus operandi in how they approach and do ministry, but I assure you that it is the tool our enemy uses to attack and discourage Christians from standing for the truth of God and all of His underlying principles that we are commanded to hold dear and obey….
