“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.

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
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
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
“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
“The Evangelical Intelligentsia’s primary ambition is to be more liked by the world than Jesus. They want to accomplish what Jesus could not…they want the multitudes who once shouted ‘crucify’ to give a golf-clap of appreciation. They want to be thought well of by the world for being the “reasonable” evangelicals (as opposed to those “insane fundamentalists”).”
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) What does it mean to have a “prophetic voice” in our culture? The word seems to have been an in-word for the last several years, but I don’t know that it’s ever received proper treatment. I aspire to do so now. Continue reading
“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
“Some viewed Brandt’s actions as a stunning example of forgiveness, a moment of grace and tenderness that briefly bridged the chasm between races and provided an example for all to emulate. Although Christians of different backgrounds shared a variety of responses, this moment was especially celebrated by white Christians. It seems to indicate a desire to hastily move on from the wrong done and offer a perfect picture of reconciliation.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) If you weren’t aware, yesterday marked the end of a 6-day trial that led to the conviction of a former white police officer who murdered a black man. Continue reading
“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
“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
“[P]rint media – newspapers and magazines – are the most liberal sources of news possible. Getting your news from The New York Times and Mother Jones is a good way to end up with the political persuasion of a Gospel Coalition contributor.”
(Pulpit & Pen) The progressive-leftist “Gospel Coalition” warned its readers today against getting news from anywhere besides Mainstream Media (MSM), which is a hegemonic bastion of Democrat propaganda. Continue reading
“World Vision has also been steadily crafting a more politically correct social justice image.”
(David Scott – Enemies Within The Church) In 2014 World Vision announced the reversal of the missions organization’s policy on same-sex relationships from prohibiting to affirming. A backlash from a number of evangelical institutions and leaders led to a reversal of the reversal, with World Vision returning to their original biblical position. The story was carried by most major news outlets, right, left and center. Very few major news outlets have carried any monumental stories about World Vision since 2014, though there may be scandal far more dramatic than anything related to World Vision’s policies on gay relationships. Continue reading
“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
“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
“While mentioning the Democratic talking points of racism (which is about as common in our country as alcohol abolitionism these days) and “lifting up the poor,” he did not mention anything about protecting religious liberties, the right of conscience, or the unborn.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Tim Keller, the Marxist co-founder of the political organization, The Gospel Coalition, wrote an op-ed in the New York Times, warning Christians not to identify with the Republican Party and not to assume the Democratic Party is not “the Christian one.” This editorial seems to have set the tone for more recent attacks against partisanism on the part of ERLC and TGC leaders we’ve seen in recent weeks. Continue reading
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
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
“By contemplation, I am basically referring to the work of creating and sustaining an inner life of peace, quiet, listening to the Divine/Mystery/Higher Power/God , and letting the overflow of that love stretch into other realms of life.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) CRU — formerly Campus Crusade for Christ — has been exposed as a social justice political organization with the sole intention of turning young, Christian-minded students into progressive activists…. Continue reading
“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
“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
“Gender-confused teen girls as young as 13, Laidlaw warned, are having their breasts removed via mastectomy procedures, and boys the age of 17 are developing penises the developmental age of a nine-year-old’s or losing sexual sensation all together due to hormone blockers.”
(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Wire) More than 6,300 adults have died from reactions to a drug that is used as a puberty blocker in gender-confused children, Food & Drug Administration data reportedly shows. Continue reading
Dummitt also notes that part of what kept him enmeshed in gender ideology was the fact that he was never made to confront differing academic viewpoints. “Steven Pinker’s critique of social constructionism, The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature, was published in 2002 before I finished my PhD and before I published my book. Yet I hadn’t even heard of it, and no one ever suggested I might need to deal with its arguments and evidence. That alone should tell you a lot about the silo we all inhabited.”
(Calvin Freiburger – LifeSiteNews) — A Canadian historian who helped popularize the idea of gender as a social construct meant to preserve traditional power structures has gone public with a mea culpa for his past work…. Continue reading
After the 2012 election, Fox News started drifting away from the right, as Rush Limbaugh noted on numerous occasions. As Breitbart News reported, Limbaugh even said that it was “quite telling” that Fox News did not want him to discuss his opposition to the Gang of Eight’s amnesty bill and added that “Fox News is not considered the conservative network that it used to be” to many in the heartland.
(Tony Lee – Breitbart) Vanity Fair’s Gabe Sherman, citing four sources, reported that Fox Corp. CEO Lachlan Murdoch, who has long tried to move Fox News to the center, “is already thinking about how to position the network for a post-Trump future.” Continue reading
