Creators of New CBS Drama ‘Evil’ Reveal Show Will Depict Positive Portrayal of Prayer on Screen

When it comes to understanding demons and spiritual warfare, one of the greatest works accessible to just about everyone is Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters,” a 1942 novel that takes the form of letters penned by senior demon Screwtape to his nephew Wormwood, a junior tempter. Wormwood’s ultimate job is to ensure the damnation of a British man known only as “the patient.”  

(Tré Goins-Phillips – Faithwire)  It might sound like the start of a bad joke, but it’s the truth. Rather than walking into a bar, as the story usually goes, a skeptic and a believer have teamed up to create a new drama exploring demonic possession, spirituality, and religion. Continue reading

President Trump’s Ukraine Call Transcript Has Been Released and Blows Up the Latest Impeachment Narrative

Did Charisma Magazine edit an article on Bill Johnson to protect his heretical agenda?

While this may seem a minor issue, these changes hid Bill Johnson’s heresy to the point he no longer appears to be attacking the divinity of Jesus Christ – until you read further into the piece.  So what did we find that verified Charisma Magazine was being dishonest?

(Churchwatch Central)  Back in 2017, Church Watch Central published an article exposing the heretical Jesus of NARpostle Bill Johnson, who publicly stated ‘that Jesus ceased to be God so He could perform miracles through the power of the Holy Spirit’: Continue reading

Conservative Activists Clean Up 50 TONS Of Garbage In Liberal Los Angeles; Media Silent

Presler called the clean-up “one of the proudest moments of my life,” adding, “I’ll never forget the day we cleaned up a homeless camp in LA.”

(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Mail) In August, a group of Trump supporters led by conservative activist Scott Presler went to West Baltimore for a massive clean-up operation following tweets sent by President Donald Trump highlighting the dire conditions in the area.

Keeping to his promises, Presler has since led clean-up efforts in Newark, New Jersey and Virginia Beach, Virginia. And on Saturday, Presler and some 200 volunteers headed to Democrat-run Los Angeles, removing a stunning 50 tons of garbage, according to the activist. Continue reading

United Methodists Float Plans to Split Denomination after LGBTQ Vote

Revealed: 80 Percent of Central American Women, Girls Raped Crossing into U.S.

“Princeton Policy Advisors estimates that 103,000 women will be raped trying to reach the U.S. from Central America in 2019. Though that figure could be much higher, as rape and other crimes against migrants skyrockets in Mexico and after they cross the border.” 

(Jerome Hudson – Breitbart)  For all the political Left’s shrieks about a so-called “War on women” and a systemic “rape culture” pervasive throughout American society, the reality that some 8 in 10 women and girls are sexually assaulted during the dangerous trek from Mexico and South America to the U.S. southern border is met mostly with silence.

Kim Kardashian Claims Blasphemous Husband Kanye West is ‘Born Again,’ Started ‘Sunday Service’ to ‘Heal Himself’

Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! show and was jokingly asked by its host Jimmy Kimmel, “Do you pray to Kayne or to God at this church?”  “There’s actually no praying; there’s no sermon; there’s no word; it’s just music and just a feeling,” Kardashian explained.

(Heather Clark – Christian News)  Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is claiming that her husband Kanye West, who has come to be known for profane and bizarre behavior — and who released the blasphemous rap album “Yeezus” in 2013 — is “born again” and “saved by Christ.” The statements were made during an interview on The View this past Friday as Kardashian explained the origin of her husband’s controversial “Sunday Service” gatherings, which she claims is actually “a Christian church.” Continue reading

(Pulpit & Pen)  Just days before Saudi Arabia suffered a major terrorist attack that is currently being blamed upon Iran, the Saudi Crown Prince privately flew in powerful American evangelicals, and then rushed them again out of the country before the attacks occurred. Continue reading

Christian Artists Can’t Be Forced to Make Gay Wedding Invites, Arizona Supreme Court Rules

“These women of deep religious faith gladly serve everyone, including those in the LGBT community; their faith simply prevents them from expressing certain messages for anyone. So this case is not about whether businesses can decline to serve an entire class of people. It is about whether artists can freely choose which messages their own art conveys.”

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media)  On Monday, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that the City of Phoenix could not use a criminal law to force a Christian arts studio to make wedding invitations for a gay wedding. Joanna Duka and Breanna Koski, owners of Brush & Nib Studio, faced up to six months of jail time, $2,500 in fines, and three years of probation for each day the city would find them in violation of the law.

Jesuit Priest Gets Slammed On Twitter After Endorsing LGBT Lifestyle

(Frank Camp – Daily Wire)  On Thursday, Jesuit priest and editor at large of America Magazine James Martin sent out a tweet about homosexuals not feeling welcome in the Catholic church: Continue reading

The George Soros Funded Transformation of Evangelical Churches

“Now that Stetzer has left LifeWay, he holds the Billy Graham Chair of Church, Mission, and Evangelism at Wheaton College, serves as Dean of the School of Mission, Ministry, and Leadership at Wheaton College, and serves as Executive Director of the Billy Graham Center.” 

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  If you ever wondered why LifeWay stores — a bookstore owned and managed by the Southern Baptist Convention — is littered with heretical books written by false teachers, it’s that those who have been in charge over the years had no concern for the poison they fed the sheep and were hell-bent on making a profit, at all costs.

Make No Mistake: The GOP is Losing Texas

“As noted, the reason for this is simple: demographics. For decades, the Republicans have told their voters that they were going to clamp down on illegal immigration and address the legal immigration policies that have facilitated this takeover.

(Joshua Foxworth – American Thinker)  To date, five congressmen from Texas have resigned instead of seeking re-election in 2020. Their resignations signal two things from GOP leadership…. Continue reading

Austin, Texas Becomes First City to Pay Women to Kill Their Babies in Abortions

“It’s a shame that as the years go by, more restrictive laws go into place, chipping away at Roe v. Wade and women in our community have less access to abortion care. This proposal will make sure that Austinites who need an abortion can access that care.”

(Micaiah Bilger – Life News)  While some Texas cities are voting to protect unborn babies’ lives, another is providing money to help destroy them.

On Tuesday, the Austin City Council voted to spend $150,000 taxpayer dollars to help Austin women get abortions, KADN News reports…. Continue reading

Senate Demands Pastors Reject Biblical Counseling For LGBT Californians

These slanderous statements were simply bizarre. ACR 99 does not clearly define so-called “conversion therapy.” It does not even mention psychologists, psychiatrists, or mental health professionals. Instead, it targets churches, counselors, and even formerly LGBTQ Christians. Sadly, these vitriolic and bigoted attacks on California’s faith community went largely unchallenged.

(California Family Council)  Last week, the California Senate gave party-line approval to Assembly Concurrent Resolution 99, a resolution demanding people of faith in the state change how they teach, preach, and counsel others related to LGBT identities and behaviors…. Continue reading

ACLU Targets Republican For Refusing To Host Drag Queen Performers With Down Syndrome

“I have been called a bigot, an ableist, a homophobe and a transphobe. I fundamentally don’t understand how someone can take my very good faith concern about the potential for exploitation and spin that into discriminating against people with a disability.”

(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Wire)  The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a complaint against congressional Republican candidate Peter Meijer, 31, for refusing to host a drag queen performance at a venue he owns from a group of performers with Down syndrome dubbed “Drag Syndrome.” Continue reading

Costi Hinn, the nephew of Benny Hinn and pastor of discipleship at Redeemer Bible Church in Gilbert, Arizona, told Christian News that he is cautiously optimistic about his uncle’s words.  “I was encouraged by his blunt refutation of the prosperity gospel,” he said. “I sincerely hope and pray that this is the beginning of repentance for him and a turnaround in these later years in his life and ministry.”

(Heather Clark – Christian News)  Televangelist Benny Hinn said on Monday that he has had a change of heart in regard to prosperity preaching and is actually quite upset about the matter — specifically in terms of asking people to give money so that God will bless them in return…. Continue reading

After Years of Warnings, Karen Swallow Prior Finally OUT at ERLC!

We are thankful that after years of hard work trying to unwed this wicked woman’s influence in the SBC, ever since our first post about her entitled, Gay-Affirming Research Fellow at ERLC, Shocking Liberalism more than four years ago, that her official affiliation with the denomination through the ERLC is now over.

(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen)  After years of warning Southern Baptists that Karen Swallow Prior was a feminist, animal rights activist, egalitarian, and radical liberal who was serving as a change agent for leftist psuedo-Christianity, she has finally been removed as a Research Fellow for the ERLC.

Video: ‘Sing Hallelujah to the Lord’ Becomes Anthem for Hong Kong Protests Against China’s Communist Push

“Christian churches run a large number of educational institutions, ranging from nurseries to post-secondary institutions. Moreover, they provide 13 hospitals, a large number of clinics, family centers and old-age homes throughout Hong Kong,” the site InterNations outlines.

(Heather Clark – Christian News Network)  Even though only a small percentage Hong Kong’s citizens profess to be Christian, numerous online videos have captured crowds singing “Sing Hallelujah to the Lord” on the streets in recent months among protests against a bill that some fear would extradite residents to Communist China.

Christian authors blast Amazon for banning their books, selling pedophilia titles

(Brandon Showalter – The Christian Post)  Christian authors who once identified as gay or lesbian are highlighting the double standard Amazon is applying by removing their books from the platform while continuing to sell titles that promote pedophilia. Continue reading

Jackie Hill Perry Uninvited From Answers in Genesis Women’s Conference

“Hill Perry’s picture has been removed from the speaker line-up on the Answers in Genesis page — which was also confirmed by Answers staff.”

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte)  Jackie Hill Perry is a woke feminist ex-lesbian who is a contributor at The Gospel Coalition and regular speaker in the New Calvinist SBC/PCA speaking circuit.

More than Half of American Satanists Identify as LGBTQ

The Satanist said, “I think that’s because they feel disowned and disenfranchised from the traditional religious institutions. So, you have a population willing to embrace a religious identification that is boldly willing to speak out to the contrary.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  According to the head of the Satanic Temple of the United States, more than half of the Satan-worshippers in their organization are homosexuals or the gender-confused.

Lucien Grieves (a pseudonym), the head of the U.S. Satanic Temple told a British publication that more than half of the Satanists in America are LGBTQ. Continue reading
