The faith to die in the faith

(Jordan Standridge – The Cripplegate)  The perseverance of the saints is an astonishing miracle. And perhaps in this day and age, an underrated act of God.

Whether it is moral failures or theological drifts, it is all too common for men of God to die while bringing shame upon the Gospel.

But on the other hand it is so wonderful when we see men and women greatly used by God in their lives who model for us what it truly means to die well. Continue reading

The Threat

“I could give you 50 important stories that the corporate media companies ignore simply because they are trying to protect liberal politicians and “woke” causes. The news blackout is corrupt and a threat to us all.”

(Bill O’Reilly)  The threat is gaining strength.  It is affecting every single American citizen.  It is vicious, hateful and obscure.  And the threat will diminish your freedom. Continue reading

The Number of Small Businesses Destroyed by COVID Lockdowns Will ASTOUND You

“Some governors, among them West Coast governors Gavin Newsom of California, Jay Inslee of Washington, and Kate Brown of Oregon, still refuse to give up the emergency powers invoked during the pandemic so they can drop the hammer on people’s freedom at their next whim.”

(Victoria Taft – PJ Media)  COVID shutdowns championed by U.S. governors and D.C. bureaucrats are responsible for destroying nearly 40% of small businesses since the virus was unleashed on the world—and we know now that it was for little to no damned good reason…. Continue reading

The Vanishing Conscience

5 Therefore it is necessary to be in subjection, not only because of wrath, but also for conscience’ sake. Romans 13:5 (NASB) 

Part of daily devotional time is to pray for personal holiness along with wisdom, discernment, and Christlikeness. Why do I do that? Just take an honest look at the visible church all around us. What is missing? Yes, we have religion. Yes, we have growing churches. But if you take a good, long, hard look at the spiritual maturity of most professing Christians in the U.S.A. what do we come up with?… Continue reading

The Preeminence of Christ

1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, 2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. 3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they. Hebrews 1:1-4 (NASB) 

Much of what we see in the “Post-Modern” version of “Christian” teaching is that if Jesus were here now He wouldn’t be a Christian. In other words, the “Church” has got it wrong…. Continue reading

Bethel Leader Bill Johnson Denies Scripture – ‘God Doesn’t Control Everything’

“So that’s my approach, is that God is absolutely sovereign and that he’s in charge of everything. But I don’t credit him with Hitler. I don’t credit him with the disasters that take place in the earth. I don’t look at these and go, “Well, this is the plan of God who’s devised wickedness so that his glory could be seen.”

(Protestia)  Bethel Church’s newly launched YouTube Web series titled “Rediscover Bethel,” which features an in-depth Q&A that addresses some of their beliefs and distinctives, has already paid dividends, as Bill Johnson and his associate pastor talk shop about whether or not God is in control of everything, concluding that he is not. Continue reading

New Mini-Documentary Exposes Al Mohler’s Complicity in the Southern Baptist Woke Movement

“The state of the denomination is perilous and while many of its leaders, including Al Mohler, Danny Akin, and several professors who sit under their leadership, have been exposed in this documentary for not being as “conservative” as they claim to be.”

(Reformation Charlotte)  Many in the Southern Baptist Convention have heralded Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and arguably the most influential voice in the denomination, as the voice of reason and conservatism in the midst of looming schism…. Continue reading

‘Media Hysteria’ over Lafayette Square Contributed to Dozens of Deaths, Billions in Damage in ‘Summer of Violence’

“This was not a peaceful environment at all and the media reaction that said you couldn’t do anything as people were besieging the White House — causing the president to be put in a bunker for his safety — or churches were being burned, or these park police were being injured, actually contributed so much to the entire summer of violence, because people were terrified of doing anything to restore order.”

(Robert Kraychik – Breitbart)  Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at the Federalist and Fox News contributor, told Breitbart News on Friday that news media deception contributed to dozens of deaths and billions of dollars in property damage in violent riots across 2020. Continue reading

Drunk on Power: Some Politicians Just Can’t Let Go of Their COVID Lockdowns

“Chicago’s positivity rate was never much higher than Texas or Florida. But those states reopened months ago. Why is Lightfoot congratulating herself for hanging on to her power for so long?”

(Rick Moran – PJ Media)  Anyone who knows anything about power and politicians knew 15 months ago (when restrictions on movement and personal freedoms were first announced) that it would be the devil trying to get states to give up that power. Continue reading

Virginia mom who survived Maoist China eviscerates school board’s critical race theory push

(Michael Ruiz – Fox News)  A Virginia mom who endured Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution before immigrating to the U.S. ripped a Virginia school board at a public meeting Tuesday over its stubborn support of the controversial critical race theory.

“I’ve been very alarmed by what’s going on in our schools,” Xi Van Fleet told the Loudoun County School Board members. “You are now teaching, training our children to be social justice warriors and to loathe our country and our history.” Continue reading

Quietism and Activism – How do we grow as Christians?

“The very reason that we keep striving for holiness is precisely because we know that God is working in us when we do so. If you knew that God would be at work in you when you are at work, wouldn’t that motivate you to work all the more?”

(Barry Cooper – Simply Put)  In the beginning, before there was Broadband, there was Dial-Up. And it was very bad.

If, back in 1999, you wanted to watch the trailer for Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace, and many people did, you couldn’t just hit play on your computer, watch it, and then get on with your life like it was no biggie…. Continue reading

Amazon Driver’s Racial Attack on Older Woman Presages Things to Come

“CRT curriculum is nothing but Hating Whitey 101. And Caucaphobia is now all the rage on college campuses. Consider the recent story about how a psychiatrist gave a lecture at Yale University titled “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind,” in which she described her fantasies of murdering white people….”

(Selwyn Duke – The New American)  Forget “the customer is always right.” Now it’s “If the customer is white and I’m uptight, we’re gonna fight.” Some are essentially drawing this conclusion after video emerged of an Amazon driver saying something about “white privilege” and then attacking a customer who’d grown impatient over sub-par service….

Parents Are Revolting, Teachers Are Resigning, and This Dangerous Leftist Ideology Is to Blame

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media)  On Tuesday, an upstate New York school board meeting almost descended into a brawl after a school board member called a father an “a**hole” and tried to punch him. On the same day, an English teacher at a private New Jersey prep school announced she would resign due to “the hostile culture of conformity and fear that has taken hold of our school.” Also on the same day in Virginia, a teacher encouraged parents, students, and teachers to revolt against the ideology that is creeping into her school district. Continue reading

Do Not Pass Judgment on One Another

1 Now accept the one who is weak in faith, but not for the purpose of passing judgment on his opinions. 2 One person has faith that he may eat all things, but he who is weak eats vegetables only. 3 The one who eats is not to regard with contempt the one who does not eat, and the one who does not eat is not to judge the one who eats, for God has accepted him. 4 Who are you to judge the servant of another? To his own master he stands or falls; and he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand. Romans 14:1-13 (NASB) Read verses 5-13 on the site.

When I encounter a believer who is legalistic, no matter how well versed they are on the Biblical passages they specialize in, I know I am dealing with someone who is spiritually immature…. Continue reading

Priscilla Shirer Attacks the Bible as ‘Hand-me-down Revelation’

We thank God for our pastors and our teachers and our leaders that help us to rightly divide the word of truth but there ought to come a time in your life where you’ve decided, “You know what? I want fresh revelation with my name on it that has come straight from God’s Spirit for my life.”

(Protestia)  From a recently unearthed 2019 clip, Lifeway darling Priscilla Shirer, daughter of Pastor Tony Evans, demonstrates with startling clarity why she is such an objectionably terrible preacher and bible teacher, framing scripture as just “hand-me-down-the-revelation” that is not sufficient. Continue reading

‘I AM Science, Says the Sun King’: Tucker Carlson, Megyn Kelly, Others Scorch Fauci Claim

“Apparently, this has been an ongoing theme for Fauci during media appearances of late. Except that science is a process, not a person, and no one individual, even the esteemed Dr. Anthony Fauci, has a monopoly on the truth. If anything, he’s been wrong way more often than he’s been right.”

(Scott Morefield – Townhall)  White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci apparently thinks he IS science now, or something, and as you might expect with such a claim, mere mortal people had thoughts. Continue reading

Finally, the Southern Baptist Convention Begins to Burn Down, and the Smoke is a Sweet Smell

“The divide in the Southern Baptist Convention is growing. While there are many reasons to split, the biggest is the progressive shift away from the inerrancy of Scripture and the embrace of theological liberalism. The idea is that it is the mission and focus of the Church to right the wrongs of social and economic inequality….” 

(Reformation Charlotte)  One of the unofficial but defining principles in the Southern Baptist Convention has always been that the leadership doesn’t speak ill against other leaders in the denomination…. Continue reading

Catholic League Slams Biden For 32 Direct Violations Of Core Church Teachings

Laptop Reveals Hunter Biden Used N-Word Multiple Times in Text Messages

Graphic Language

“In addition to the text messages, Hunter’s laptop is said to contain a meme depicting his father and former President Barack Obama, which included a racist slur.”

(Joshua Caplan – Breitbart) Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, used the n-word multiple times in text messages with his white attorney, according to an explosive Tuesday report. Continue reading

Fine Tuning Purity and Seeing God

8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Matthew 5:8 (NASB)

How important is it for Christians to be pure in heart? If we look at Jesus’ statement from Matthew 5:8 we see that those who are pure in heart shall see God. What does that mean? Is this a promise that the only ones who do attain a pure heart will be in eternity with God? Or, does it mean that our English/American understanding of the terms used in this statement by Jesus are inadequate to convey the truths correctly?… Continue reading

The Lethal Wages of Trump Derangement Madness

It is almost as if the hackers are saying to Americans, as they cause continental damage and disruption and endanger lives, “What do you care, since your government canceled your own pipelines and is demanding less meat consumption? So why get mad at us for speeding up the implementation of your own agendas?”

(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness)  Think about it: For about five years, anything candidate, president-elect, and President Trump said or did, the media, the Left, and progressive popular culture opposed in Pavlovian fashion. Continue reading

When Will the ‘Experts’ Stop Pretending Natural Immunity Doesn’t Exist in Recovered COVID-19 Patients?

“Instead of conducting studies to determine whether this was the case with COVID, the global health bureaucracy recommended draconian lockdowns and other mitigation methods.” 

(Stacy Lennox – PJ Media) For those of us who have recovered from COVID-19, the failure of those making policy recommendations to acknowledge and account for the immunity developed naturally following a COVID-19 infection is beyond frustrating…. Continue reading

John MacArthur on Charismatic Worship: Exactly Like the Hindu Kundalini Cult

(Reformation Charlotte)  John MacArthur has often compared charismatic worship to the Kundalini Spirit which is a form of demon possession associated with the practices of Hinduism. As one of the most outspoken critics against the charismatic movement, John MacArthur ascribes the movement to Satan and demons masquerading as angels of light deceiving people into believing that their movement is a movement of the Holy Spirit.
