‘Women Should Be Pastors’ Was Central Theme of SBC Conference

“A famous anti-Trump, liberal lady-pastor made national headlines this year for sexually harassing a gay member of her church staff. Bill Hybels, now suspected of sexually abusing staff members, is a fully egalitarian church. Contrary to Boz Tchvidjian’s opinion, the woman abused at Willow Creek would not have been abused had she not been in the room to make decisions.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  Under the guise of supporting abuse victims, the Democrat-controlled Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) hosted a conference over the weekend with the main underlying purpose of advocating for an end to male-leadership in the denomination.

The ‘Never Trump’ Coalition That Decided Eh, Nevermind, He’s Fine

“Few changes of heart have been as head-spinning as the social conservatives and evangelical Christians who now consider Mr. Trump a hero. Many of the conservative women who once saw him as a boor have come to believe that for too long they were focused on the wrong qualities in presidential candidates. They wanted someone pious when they should have been looking for someone who could throw punches.”

(Jeremy W. Peters – MSN)  In 2016, Erick Erickson could not have been clearer. Donald Trump was “a racist” and “a fascist.” It was no wonder, Mr. Erickson wrote, that “so many people with swastikas in their Twitter profile pics” supported him. “I will not vote for Donald Trump. Ever,” he insisted, adding his voice to the chorus of Never Trump Republicans. Continue reading

Two PCA Presbyteries Request Missouri Presbytery to Investigate Greg Johnson, Questioning His ‘Side B’ Views

“This Report is made because a majority of the members of Westminster Presbytery and many members of her churches are aggrieved by the public reports about the Christian character of Teaching Elder Greg Johnson, and we have a desire to pursue the peace, unity, and purity of the Presbyterian Church in America, for the sake of the honor and majesty of the Lord Jesus Christ, as the King and Head thereof.”

(The Aquila Report) Westminster Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) voted on August 10, 2019 to request the Missouri Presbytery to investigate the public reports that Teaching Elder (TE) Greg Johnson identifies himself as a homosexual, and yet continues to serve as a teaching elder in the PCA. Continue reading

‘Hundreds’ Of Young People Regret Gender Transition, Seek Reversal

After speaking publicly about her transition, Evans recalled being confronted by a young woman “with a beard” who also regretted her transition. “She said she felt shunned by the LGBT community for being a traitor. So I felt I had to do something.”

(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Wire)  A female who transitioned to male as a teenager is speaking out about transgender regret. 

Twenty-eight-year-old Charlie Evans told Sky News in a recent interview that she’s spoken to “hundreds” of young people, mostly same-sex attracted women, who regret their gender transition. She also encountered an “online community of 5,000 in a similar position,” according to the network (video report below).   Continue reading

Stephen Miller Exposes the Deep State: ‘A Collection of Permanent Bureaucrats Enmeshed Inside the Federal Government’

Miller said in his years at President Trump’s side, he has seen up close and personal what “deep state saboteurs” do when they disagree with Trump’s policies.

(Matthew Boyle – Breitbart) Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, joined Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel this weekend to expose the deep state: forces he said are driving the effort by Democrats to proceed with impeachment against the president. Continue reading

New Bill Would Require Reports on Babies Born Alive After Abortions and Left to Die

Data that the CDC collects also confirms babies are born alive after attempted abortions.  Between the years 2003 and 2014 there were somewhere between 376 and 588 infant deaths under the medical code P96.4 which keeps track of babies born alive after a “termination of pregnancy.”

(Steven Ertelt – Life News)  New Congressional legislation would require states to disclose the number of babies born after failed abortions, and on those who did not receive appropriate medical care and treatment. Continue reading

Who Is Lord: Christ or Caesar?

“The truth is that question is always there. It is always before us, before the church in every age of the past. The question is before us in our time today, and it will be in front of the church in the ages to come. Who is Lord?”

(Stephen Nichols – Ligonier Ministries)  Someday, we will be like Him. That’s our hope. But it’s not a hope that we put on the shelf, and it’s not a hope that sends us into a cave. It’s a hope that sends us into the world with confidence. We can be confident in God, confident in His Word, confident in Christ, confident in the gospel, and confident in hope. In the AD 90s, Domitian ruled as emperor over Rome…. Continue reading

Climate Change Hysteria—Is It Justified?

“Such hysteria has really resulted from generations of young people not being taught how to think and being brainwashed in secular philosophy!”

(Ken Ham – Answers In Genesis)  The topic of climate change is always in the headlines. But it’s been dominating the news lately because of the Climate Change Summit and the climate change protests from young people around the world. These young people are rallying to demand that governments take their future seriously and to enact radical policies to limit carbon emissions. Some (including teenagers) are even signing a pledge that they won’t have children until the government does something about climate change! Is this climate change hysteria justified? Continue reading

Atheist Group Files Complaint Against Judge In Amber Guyger Case For Talking To Her About Redemption

“[Freedom From Religion Foundation] is filing a judicial complaint about this unconstitutional proselytizing. We need more compassion in our criminal justice system, but here, compassion crossed the line into coercion. Judges cannot impose their personal religion on others.”

(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Wire)  An activist atheist group has filed a complaint against the judge in the widely covered case of off-duty Dallas cop Amber Guyger, who was sentenced to ten years behind bars on Wednesday for the killing of Botham Jean. Guyger shot and killed Jean after she says she mistakenly entered the wrong apartment, believing the 26-year-old accountant was an intruder in her own home. Continue reading

The Sting

“The truth is Nancy Pelosi is hitching a ride on the impeachment train – she’s not the driver.  She knows the press will provide cover for the Democrats and believes the impeachment process, even if it doesn’t result in removal, will damage Donald Trump in his re-election bid.”

(Bill O’Reilly)  If you read my new book “The United States of Trump,” you will learn exactly why the President made the request for information on Joe Biden to the President of Ukraine.  Simply put, Mr. Trump believes that Mr. Biden as well as President Obama and Hillary Clinton got away with unethical, perhaps illegal, political activities in the “Russia Collusion” thing. Continue reading

Beth Moore Attacks Biblical Gender Roles at SBC Conference, Crowd Erupts in Applause

“Moore has become a favorite of the gay community, after labeling Christians against homosexuality “hyper-fundamentalists”  and secretly removing sections from past writing that condemn sodomy. This is after Moore attacked “doctrinal purity,” claiming that the pursuit was not in line with the spirit of Scripture. In subsequent days when pressed upon to condemn homosexuality as a sin, Beth Moore refused.”

(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen)  In what will be seen as a watershed moment in the Southern Baptist Convention – the day that the liberals reclaimed that which they lost in the Conservative Resurgence – the crowd applauded wildly as Beth Moore attacked complementarianism in her sermon at a propagandic virtue-signaling conference hosted by the ERLC. Continue reading

‘Give Your Life to Christ’: Botham Jean’s Brother Forgives, Embraces Ex-Dallas Cop Who Killed His Brother

“Judge Kem told him he could [give her a hug] and Brandt and Gyger stood up, then met in front of the bench and hugged each other while Guyger cried.”

(Steve Warren – Faithwire)  Brandt Jean, the brother of a black man who was shot dead by Amber Guyger, a white Dallas Police officer who said she mistook the victim’s apartment for her own, forgave his brother’s killer and hugged her in front of the courtroom Wednesday.

As some people outside of the courtroom reacted angrily to the 10-year sentence given to Amber Guyger, 31, for killing Botham Jean in his own apartment, believing the sentence too lenient, Jean’s brother was allowed by Judge Tammy Kem to address her directly from the witness stand.  Continue reading

Trump: ‘What Is Taking Place Isn’t an Impeachment, It’s a Coup’

“Strong words. But he’s right. The American Fascist Party — ironically called the Democratic Party by its friends in the mainstream media — has been trying to undo the 2016 election results from day one. Initially, they tried to annul the results by accusing Trump of collusion with Russia. When that didn’t pan out, they chose a different path by accusing him of “blackmailing” Ukraine into giving him dirt on Joe Biden, a possible rival in 2020.”

(Michael Van Der Galien – PJ Media) President Trump has clearly had enough of the Democrats’ ridiculous attempts to undo his presidency. The impeachment procedures launched against him, he writes on Twitter, are nothing more or less than “a coup.” He’s right. Continue reading

Marianne Williamson And Pete Buttigieg Are The New Proselytizers Of Politicized Religion

“Buttigieg and Williamson’s support for unlimited abortion up to birth is an assault on the child-mother bond. They won’t speak up for the fatherless child who craves a father. They certainly won’t speak up for the child who is confused after being de-sexed by a school curriculum that pushes transgenderism. They are also both very much on board with the censorship and social engineering the Equality Act requires. And Williamson’s proposal to further bureaucratize the lives of children through a new federal “Department of Children” is Orwellian stuff. … The moral relativism of both New Age and “progressive Christianity” is disastrous. So-called progressive Christianity is self-serving with a huge dose of hypocrisy.  There is no end to the bureaucratic hell they would produce in the name of their religions. The state will provide and provide and provide until individuality and self-reliance fade into distant memory.”

(Stella Moribito – The Federalist)  James A. Pike, a bishop of the Episcopal Church active in the 1950s and ’60s, was in many ways a footnote in modern American history. Yet he was an influential media figure in his time, an agitator of radical religion and politics. His legacy is still clearly visible today, 50 years later, both in the church and today’s growing vacuum of faith, and in today’s marriage of convenience between the superficially religious and left-wing politics. Continue reading

Limbaugh: Everything Media’s Telling You About Trump Impeachment Is A Lie

Though he said all the Democrats’ lies are “too numerous” to list, the host offered his listeners some of the big ones, including Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff having “lied through his teeth” when he made up quotes about Trump supposedly asking Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to “dig up dirt” on Joe Biden in the famous July 25 call.

(James Barrett – Daily Wire)  Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh came loaded for bear on Monday, repeatedly taking aim at the Democrats’ and the Drive-by-Media’s impeachment narrative, which he said is made up entirely of “lies.” Continue reading

Heterosexuals Marching for ‘Straight Pride’ Need Police Protection to Not Get Killed

Antifa mob set on shutting parade down. Photo credit: MassResistance

“There were no public displays of affection, nudity, lascivious dancing, sexual simulation or profanity on the part of the marchers, as opposed to that which is common in gay pride parades. And yet protesters were decidedly against the march on the grounds it was immoral.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  A group of heterosexuals tried to march in Boston recently in what was intended to be a fun “spoof” of the LGBT movement and barely escaped with their lives intact. More than one thousand police officers had to be called to protect the heterosexuals from an angry mob of leftist protesters intent on hurting them.

In the United States each year, there are approximately 1,500 or more annual gay-pride parades…. Continue reading

Confronting Neo-Paganism Part 2

“The futurists speak of a “Journey toward Oneness,” carried along by “Global Spirit” (a modern form of animism). Nothing will stop them, they believe, from building a New Humanity, based on oneness, which will include the gender blur of the rising generation, which refuses to be confined to normal heterosexual distinctions.”  
(Peter Jones – truthXchange)  III The Revolution Is Just Beginning: What ever happened to the New Age?

I recently registered for an online forum, Beyond Awakening: The Future of Spiritual Practice. You could say Beyond New Age. Hailed as “the most important conversation for the planet today,” the program consists of interviews with many of the old lions of the New Age—Jean Houston, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Surya Das, Ram Das, and Michael Murphy, having their last shot, along with lion cu-bs like Ken Wilber. Within a few weeks this forum had enrolled 35,000 participants. They call themselves “Cultural Creatives,” “Progressives,” “Evolutionaries,” “Integral Spiritualists,”  “Interspiritualists” or “Transtraditional Spiritualists.”…. Continue reading

Oregon priest performs exorcisms: ‘Cases are getting darker’

“We met one such man on the day of our interview at an abandoned church in Golden. Brent Goodrich stood quietly in the back of the church in Golden, eyes trained down on the floor. The RV technician from Springfield, Oregon, drove several hours with his mom to meet Archbishop Cloud, hoping to be freed of several demonic spirits the archbishop believed were attached to him.” 

(Emily Burris – KOIN 6) For most people, tales of exorcisms are nothing more than blockbuster movies or scary stories that incite nightmares. Continue reading
