Caution! Some beloved Christian VIPs navigate the sheep down the primrose path that can lead to a life of sin

Featured

By Marsha West – Christian Research Network

Here I go again reporting on high-profile Christians who have shown a stunning lack of biblical discernment. I’ll begin by defining spiritual discernment and then I’ll name names. According to Got Questions discernment is “the ability to distinguish, to separate out by diligent search, to examine.” GQ reminds us that without the Spirit, the things of God are “foolishness.” (1 Corinthians 2:14)

It is the Holy Spirit that gives born again believers the mind of Christ. The Spirit gives us wisdom and discernment. Only those who are Spirit filled can properly distinguish between true and false teaching. How does one find the truth? By diligently searching the scriptures. (Acts 17:11) Revealing the names of people who lead us down the primrose path is not just scriptural, it is imperative that the Body of Christ know who the culprits are. So hold on to your hats while I expose two women you need to know about. Even though both are best-selling authors, speakers, and are frequent guests on popular podcasts, some of the people they laud are dangerous heretics, i.e. wolves in sheep’s clothing. 

I urge you to take time to ponder what I have to say here and then ask yourself this question: Are the things of God foolishness to me? Continue reading

BREAKING! Trump Announces VP Pick

(Spencer Brown – Townhall) U.S. Senator J.D. Vance (R-OH) was revealed as former President Donald Trump’s running mate on Monday afternoon as the Republican National Convention got underway in Milwaukee, bringing the 2024 veepstakes to a close and finalizing the GOP ticket ahead of November’s election.

Trump announced the pick in a post on Truth Social:

After lengthy deliberation and thought, and considering the tremendous talents of many others, I have decided that the person best suited to assume the position of Vice President of the United States is Senator J.D. Vance of the Great State of Ohio…. Continue reading

No, This ‘Prophet’ Did NOT Prophesy the Trump Assassination Attempt

Biggs makes it sound like the bullet will bust his eardrum because it misses his head. Instead, we see the bullet actually hit him, with no indication that his eardrum is burst. Biggs claims that in this moment, Trump fell to his knees and was “worshiping the lord” and was “radically born again.”

(Protestia) There is a video going around of a man ‘prophesying in great detail’ about the assassination attempt on Trump’s life, but this is not something we should marvel at.

Instead, this whole video is nonsense. Continue reading

Peace and Unity With the Left is Not an Option for Christians

“This isn’t merely about Trump or politics—it’s about worldview. Conservatives share absolutely nothing with those who support the systematic murder of innocent unborn children. Absolutely nothing with those who want to push harmful transgender ideologies on children. And nothing with those who believe the state is a higher authority than God, and who want everyone to bow to this secular deity.”

(The Dissenter) In the aftermath of the recent assassination attempt on Donald Trump, it may seem prudent to seek common ground with our enemies. It may be easy to fall prey to the superficial and hollow calls to “unity” from political leaders—whether it be Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, or Gretchen Whitmer—condemning the violence. Continue reading

Judge Tosses Documents Case Against Trump; Jack Smith Appointment Unconstitutional

(Joel Pollak – Breitbart) A federal judge in Florida threw out the prosecution of former President Donald Trump on Monday in the “documents” case because she ruled that Special Counsel Jack Smith had not been appointed in a constitutional or lawful manner.

Judge Aileen Cannon granted a defense motion after ruling that Smith, who was not confirmed by the U.S. Senate and was not a U.S. Attorney when appointed, could not lawfully bring the indictment against Trump in federal court. Continue reading

Love What God Loves But Hate What God Hates

9 For You are Yahweh Most High over all the earth; You are exalted far above all gods. 10 Hate evil, you who love Yahweh, Who keeps the souls of His holy ones; He delivers them from the hand of the wicked. 11 Light is sown for the righteous And gladness for the upright in heart. 12 Be glad in Yahweh, you righteous ones, And give thanks for the remembrance of His holy name. Psalms 97:9-12 (LSB) 

I saw a bumper sticker on a SUV the other day. I had seen this particular bumper sticker before so I was not surprised by it. However, for some reason it caused me to focus on the message it was attempting to convey. The bumper sticker read, “Hate is not a family value.” Now, I know, and I am sure most of you know that that statement is meant to cause those who stand firm for family values and parental rights pertaining to the exposing of their children to the Homosexual Agenda in school or any other public institution to become intimidated….

BREAKING: The Secret Service Has an Update After Donald Trump Was Shot

(Townhall) On Saturday night, former and potentially future President Donald Trump was shot during his rally in Butler County, Pennsylvania [the bullet grazed his ear]. Not long after, the Secret Service released a statement about his condition and provided an update.

Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesperson for the Secret Service, posted on X that the “Secret Service has implemented protective measures and the former President is safe.” He also revealed that what he described as an “incident” is “now an active Secret Service investigation.” Continue reading

Biden Will Wipe Out All Medical Debts, Won’t Pay Companies

“Democrats wouldn’t listen. They covered it up, lied, maligned anyone who told the truth.”

(Mary Dowling) Biden said this week that he is going to wipe out everyone’s medical debts. “I’m going to end medical debt. We’ve already made sure medical debt can’t be put on your credit report. We can wipe out medical debt for pennies on the dollar.”

The only way to do this is to tell companies they won’t get paid. Does he realize he will bankrupt the companies? If people think the system is problematic now, just wait.

‘Women Don’t Care About Doctrine …’

“Thomas Nelson did not openly correct the theology but tried to conceal the occultic origins and channeling practices from the reader. Why is there a need to omit, for example, her claim that the book God Calling was the major inspiration for her book?”

(Don & Joy Veinot – Midwest Christian Outreach) In August 2000, we began receiving phone calls and emails from people looking for information on a popular “Bible-based” weight loss program, Weigh Down Workshop, and its leader, Gwen Shamblin. Shamblin’s Weigh Down Workshop was in over 30,000 churches across 60 denominations, with over a million Christians enrolled. In addition, she had a bestseller published by Thomas Nelson Publishers titled Rise Above, which sold about 300,000 copies…. Continue reading

What does the Bible tell us about God’s righteous judgment?

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, both His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. Romans 1:18-20 (LSB) 

It seems that the default theology of Man is “Justification by Death.” Justification is a legal term where a person is declared “not guilty” by a judge. No one seems to have a problem with the concept of all people being sinners. However, our culture says that all people will be sent to Heaven when they die regardless of how they lived their lives….

Building a Culture of Truth

“In our families, we should teach our children from the Word so that they will know the truth, see the truth as critical to our lives at every level, and encouraging them how to recognize lies, repent of falsehoods, and how to live in the light of Christ in all things.”

(Kendall Lankford) “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.” – Exodus 20:16

When we think of the Ninth Commandment, our minds often fixate on the notion of lying. While this command indeed prohibits lying, it also calls us to something far deeper. It beckons us to embrace a commitment to God’s truth in every corner of our lives and society. Continue reading

Dozens of Dem Congressmen to Call For Biden’s Exit From the Race in the Next 48 Hours

“Aside from a few gaffes at his make-or-break press conference (“Vice President Trump”), Biden did alright. But he needed a home run. What he got was a bloop double. And the Democrats watching his barely competent performance have drawn the inevitable conclusion.”

(Rick Moran – PJ Media) Whatever hope Joe Biden harbored of flipping the script on his campaign died before his press conference on Thursday night even started. Continue reading

Jory Micah Terminated From Volunteer at Soup Kitchen Over Hamas-Supporting Posts

Jory Micah tweeted “Hamas didn’t rape anyone on Oct. 7th. There is literally no evidence and “Israel” lies about everything.” 

(Protestia) Jory Micah is continuing her devolution into total anarchy and insanity, giving the world a living, breathing emblem of what it means to be wholly without the mind of Christ, despite her frequently-touted Master of Arts in Christian Doctrine and History.

Protestia posted past articles on Rory Micha, then this… Continue reading

Responding to the Modern Idols of the World: Self-Esteem

“Even modern worship music has been hijacked by this self-esteem gospel. Songs that should exalt God instead turn the spotlight inward, celebrating the individual’s worth and potential. Lyrics are crafted to evoke an emotional high, a sense of personal affirmation that leaves one feeling good but spiritually malnourished. It’s a far cry from the hymns of old that directed our gaze heavenward, reminding us of our utter dependence on God’s grace.”

(The Dissenter) Continuing our series on confronting modern idols, today I’m going to talk about the idol of self-esteem. Seemingly subtle, it towers above all else. The focus on “me, myself, and I,” it’s a mantra instilled in us even in the very curriculum of elementary school. It’s as pervasive as it is pernicious, yet we perilously overlook it as second nature. Continue reading

Biden Campaign Suspects Obama Is Working Behind the Scenes to Oust Joe

Scarborough added that Joe Biden “is deeply resentful of his treatment under not only the Obama staff but also the way he was pushed aside for Hillary Clinton,” and is similarly resentful of the effort to get him to drop out of the presidential race. “He’s always felt like an outsider, always felt like people have looked down upon him.”

(Matt Margolis – PJ Media) On Thursday, “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough made a striking claim: he asserted that President Joe Biden’s campaign believes that former President Barack Obama is working behind the scenes to pressure Biden to exit the presidential race. Continue reading

The High Cost of Discipleship

21 Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be complete, go and sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” Matthew 19:21 (LSB) 

The message of salvation that is normally preached or taught in the vast majority of churches these days has been contaminated with Humanism. The focus is on becoming a Christian for some great benefit or reward from God based upon little to no personal cost. Masses of people respond to that false gospel as well. The genuine gospel that our Saviour preached during His earthly ministry may have mentioned the benefits of being saved, but He emphasized the cost of becoming His disciple in such a way that it caused many of His hearers to not follow Him anymore….

Parkinson’s Expert Could Diagnose Joe from Across the Mall

“It’s one of the easier movement disorders to diagnose actually,” Dr. Pitts said. “And I’m a Democrat…this guy is not a hard case.”

(Mary Dowling) Dr. Tom Pitts appeared on “NBC News Now” Monday to discuss the Parkinson’s expert visiting the White House eight times in the last eight months. Biden’s doctor, Kevin O’Connor, wrote a letter stating that the expert had only seen Biden once during his annual exam. The other seven times were for other people. Continue reading

If Satan himself wrote biblically sound worship music, would you sing it in church?

“If the most evil being in existence can deceive with the appearance of goodness, how much more can his followers—these so-called worship leaders—seduce with their seemingly sound music? The snare of emotional highs and the superficial appeal of contemporary worship songs mask the underlying spiritual poison and false teachings of their creators.”

(The Dissenter) I recall attending worship services where the worship leader and band members spent more time interacting with the crowd and showcasing their vocal range and guitar riffs than pointing us to the true object of Christian worship—Jesus Christ. It’s been a while, but it always had me thinking about how the line between a secular concert and a worship service has become perilously blurred in modern Evangelicalism. Continue reading

The Biden Administration Has Been Involved in Massive Child Trafficking

“Whistleblowers assigned to process minors near the border said that children were being placed with people who clearly were not their relatives and when there was evidence of abuse and trafficking.”

(Matt Margolis – PJ Media) The Biden administration is facing serious allegations of mishandling human trafficking issues after multiple whistleblowers claim that around 85,000 illegal immigrant children whom the Department of Homeland Security handed over to often inadequately vetted “sponsors” have since gone missing. Continue reading

The gate is narrow and the way is constricted that leads to life, and there are few who find it

12 “Therefore, in all things, whatever you want people to do for you, so do for them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. 13 “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. 14 For the gate is narrow and the way is constricted that leads to life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:12-14 (LSB) 

Our Lord Jesus Christ set before us the way of Righteousness. Yes, He lived a perfect life and died on a cruel cross to pay the penalty and price for the sins of those whom He came to save. However, He also taught us both in word and deed how the truly Righteous should live…. Continue reading

If You Were Duped On Biden’s Cognitive Decline, You’re Too Dumb To Be A Journalist

“And if you knew, you were in on it.”

(David Harsanyi – The Federalist) By the time we saw Joe Biden’s debate debacle, the media had spent four years covering up his mental and physical decline to help Democrats. After Biden’s fragile mental state was exposed, the media instantaneously began pushing Biden out of the presidential race to help Democrats.

The goal remains the same.

The Wall Street Journal reports this week that Biden’s senior advisers “aggressively stage-managed” the president’s “schedule, movements and personal interactions, as they sought to minimize signs of how age has taken a toll on the oldest president in U.S. history.”… Continue reading

Cut to the chase: Four reasons to avoid Lori Alexander of godlywomanhood

Yes, Lori Alexander is a heretic. Here’s why.

(Elizabeth Prata – The End Time) Today I look at 4 reasons not to follow Lori Alexander, half of the duo behind godlywomanhood/ The Transformed Wife.

1. Lori Disbelieves in Original Sin

In a post now scrubbed but saved in the Internet Archive (see link ‘Source’), Lori wrote in 2016: “Your children are born in the flesh. It’s not sinful yet since they haven’t sinned, just as Adam’s flesh wasn’t sinful before he sinned“. (Source on the site). Continue reading

Planned Parenthood Is a Leader in Transing Kids

“Earlier this year, Missouri AG Andrew Bailey accused the abortion giant of helping minors obtain both puberty blockers and “transgender” surgeries without parental consent.”

(Catherine Salgado – P Media) Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has found a new way to grow rich by abusing and exploiting America’s children: cross-sex hormones for “transgenders.”

The transgender surgery industry alone could reach a $5 billion value by 2030, not to mention all the other damaging “treatments” and accouterments for pretending to be the opposite sex…. Continue reading

Where is the promise of his coming?

1 This is now, beloved, the second letter I am writing to you in which I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, 2 that you should remember the words spoken beforehand by the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior spoken by your apostles, 3 knowing this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 2 Peter 3:1-7 (LSB)  Read verses 5-7on the site.

My own experience has been that there are a great number of professing Christians who fall into this role of ‘scoffer.’ They may not intentionally do it, but they still have the mindset that ‘all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.’ The Greek word Peter used here that is translated ‘scoffers’ is ἐμπαίκτης (empaiktēs)….
