“To thank God for something as wicked as abortion is to directly lift your finger to him and thank him for the eternal wrath and judgment you’re going to receive. Don’t worry, they got that covered too.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Few have been clearer than Voddie Baucham on this, that feminism is the judgment and wrath upon a wicked and rebellious people. A nation given over to their sin is a nation given over to wicked women and effeminate men. Continue reading

“I’m not necessarily saying we should look for a demon behind every incident that doesn’t go our way, but perhaps we’re underestimating the influence of the kingdom of darkness.”
(Alan Shlemon – Stand To Reason) Angels and demons exist. I’ll admit that even though I believe that, I tend to downplay their reality. Daniel 10, however, offers us a glimpse of spiritual warfare that helps us glean some insights into their activity and their real-life impact. Continue reading
“Recall the history surrounding the cessation of the horrors of slavery, segregation, and racism in the United States. Who stopped it? White Americans, the same people who this curriculum colors as evil. The Civil War was primarily fought by white Americans, and they fought side-by-side with black Americans. White Americans observed the evils of slavery and couldn’t bear the inequity of segregation. White people, the largest demographic at the time, chose to live in equality with countrymen of all colors. But their sacrifice for freedom is effaced by the “Racism as a Primary ‘Institution’ of the U.S.” lesson plans.”
(Marina Medvin – Townhall) Last week we discussed the dangers of the new elementary school “Racial Literacy Curriculum” that is being instituted in Grades K-8 in various schools spanning eight states. This week, we will examine the activism requirements of this curriculum. Continue reading
“Playing the suicide card is a frequent part of the game here, where parents are told, “If you don’t affirm your daughter in her new identity as a male, she will kill herself. Do you want a live son or a dead daughter?” So against your common sense, your faith, and everything you knew about your child prior to the current corruption overload, you are persuaded by an “affirming” counselor that mutilating her healthy body is the best course of action.”
(Linda Harvey – Mission:America) Progressives are busy smashing the innocence and dreams of our youth, but they aren’t doing it without thought. They have their reasons. Continue reading
Like Planned Parenthood, the AND Campaign places abortion under the umbrella of healthcare and calls it “a tragedy, not a social good, that should be vehemently discouraged rather than promoted.” Contrast this tame language with what it says about President Trump’s immigration policies. “The current administration’s willingness to use draconian, manipulative measures to stoke fear in immigrant communities and pit family members against one another is reprehensible.”
(Enemies Within The Church) In a recent podcast, Jon Harris claimed that “The AND Campaign is . . . a dangerous campaign to persuade evangelical voters . . . to think in progressive terms and categories and ultimately to vote either for Democrats or progressive Republicans who will say the same things that Democrats are saying.”…. Continue reading
“So, you don’t have to post internet memes and videos, display bumper stickers, or make rude comments to tell me how terrible abortion is. Nor do you need to shout it from street corners or pulpits—I know. My mother knows. Over 66% of women know.”
(Pulpit & Pen) A new blog post at the ERLC tells Christians not to preach against abortion from the pulpit, on the street corner, and not to use pro-life/anti-abortion bumper-stickers or slogans in social media. It is hurtful to women, they argue. Continue reading
People who cannot pay $229 are invited to instead pay $31, a number reached by adding the numbers of the verse in the Bible—22 and 9. “But I believe that God was very clear when I received this word that the $229 seed given in faith can break any chains,” the email adds, again urging people to pay the full $229.
(Tufayel Ahmed – Newsweek) President Donald Trump’s personal pastor and spiritual adviser Paula White is asking followers to give her $229 in order to receive “prophetic instruction” on how to defeat the enemies in their lives this November. Continue reading
“As a side note, if you wonder why Beth Moore is always in the news, it isn’t because the mean people won’t leave her alone, it is because she does exactly as the verse says false teachers do: stir up controversies. In fact, false teachers have a unhealthy interest in quarrels and they promote malicious talk and evil suspicions.”
(Elizabeth Prata – The End Time) Regarding the strange video Beth Moore made of herself and posted on Instagram. She filmed herself working out in pajamas, slippers, and bed head. The point of her video was to reassure her followers just how normal she is. Continue reading
But what really gets me is how it’s been almost seven years since Barack Obama left one of his ambassadors to die in a terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate, and the same people who defended the Obama administration endlessly over that, are feigning outrage over Trump’s tweet expressing his opinion. Democrats have been crying “impeach!” over everything for years, and now every time Trump expresses an opinion, we’re hearing “intimidation.”
(Matt Margolis – PJ Media) On Friday, as former Ambassador Maria Yovanovitch was testifying, President Trump made a series of tweets criticizing her performance as ambassador, which got Democrats so triggered, his tweets were read soon after they were made, and the narrative presented was that the tweet was witness intimidation. Continue reading
“Three of the latest examples of this are recent attacks on conservative resurgence leader, Paige Patterson, Reformed apologist James White, and the highly regarded pastor, author, and theologian, John MacArthur.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Those who tend to lack the sophistication of intellectual discourse tend to be well-versed in personal attacks and insults. This truth is couldn’t be made more clear than in today’s Evangelical environment. The leftward leadership of the Evangelical Church, particularly the Southern Baptist Convention, have abandoned all logic and reason and launched an outright tirade against conservatism. Continue reading
“Here are five ways parent’s can join in the spiritual fight for their young people to help stop the trend…#2 Speak well of your pastor and leaders. Great damage is done when you speak evil of the church, the pastor, or the leaders before your children. If you want them to have a positive view of the church, you must show them one. Please realize that before disgruntlement often comes a refusal to accept God’s Word. A disgruntled and complaining spirit is a certain recipe to drive them out.”
(Chris Gordon – Abounding Grace Radio) This essay comes from the heart as a passionate plea to parents out of our shared concern for our covenant children. It is difficult to pastor a flock in a conservative church today, but not for the reasons that you might think…. Continue reading
“The advertisement then ends with the statement: “Orgullo: lo que sentis cuando alguien que quieres elige ser feliz,” meaning, “Pride: what you feel when someone you love chooses to be happy.” The song “You’ll Never Walk Alone” plays throughout the duration of the video.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News) A video advertisement posted to social media by Sprite Argentina celebrates “pride,” depicting — among other things — mothers taking pride in their teenage children by helping them present themselves as “transgender.” Continue reading
“When joining a church, you want to be certain that the pastors who oversee the church and the members who make up the church take spiritual accountability seriously. A church that condones sin is a dangerous place for your soul. Not only your soul, but you must consider the spiritual wellbeing of your entire family (your spouse and children).”
(Josh Buice – Delivered By Grace) On a fairly regular basis, I have people who reach out to me for local church recommendations as they’re planning a big move across state lines. Sometimes I have connections to that area and sometimes I have no church that I could recommend…. Continue reading
“We can be astounded by the alacrity with which the British news media—the owners, not the frustrated reporters whose urgent dispatches were willfully buried or ignored—stifled what should have been alarming news, necessitating, in the interests of national self-preservation, a powerful response. The news giants, one and all, mocked and belittled anyone who tried to alert the nation to its peril. In the course of their labors, they invented fake news. That was when it started.”
(Lee Duigon – News With Views) Imagine you’re all of 22 years old, and you already have your own reality show on British television, you’re famous—and you’re what they call an “influencer.” Continue reading
“If evangelicals are so intent on finding ‘black leadership’ they need to look right past Tony Evans. Not only is he a Pelagian, inclusivist, and limited theist, but he is leading young black men into anger and resentment, making racial reconciliation next to impossible. That’s not the kind of leadership that should be sought.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Instead of using his platform to promote unity and reconciliation, Tony Evans has capitalized on the color of his skin to sow seeds of discord in American evangelicalism. He is now encouraging the racist, divisive protests against the Dove Awards by Social Gospel proponents, Lecrae and Kirk Franklin. Continue reading
“Autonomous freedom! How the voices of our day cry out! I must be free to kill the child in my womb. I must be free even to kill the newborn child if I don’t think he or she measures up to my standards of “quality life.” I must be free to desert my husband or wife, and abandon my children. I must be free to commit shameless acts with those of my own sex….”
(Bill Muehlenberg – Culture Watch) Amazing and much-needed prophetic words from the late, great Francis Schaeffer:
The good news is this: when the times get the darkest, God will raise up prophets to confront the situation, speak to his people, and declare much-needed truth. But the bad news is this: these prophets are invariably rejected. When they are the most needed, they are often the least heeded. Continue reading
“My favorite purveyor of assorted hearsay is another star witness for Schiff this Wednesday. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent testified that he “believed” there was a “quid pro quo” after speaking to Taylor who spoke to Morrison who heard it from Sondland who, as noted, “presumed” a precondition. This is conjecture built on triple hearsay. It is not evidence, it is junk. If this were a court of law, the presiding judge would instruct the jury to disregard such testimony and strike it from the record.”
(Gregg Jarrett – Fox News) The clown show known as an “impeachment inquiry” is getting more comical and hapless by the day. Continue reading
“No matter what sin we happen to be struggling with. No matter how intense the battle in our members may appear to be we can take heart that God’s will is for us to be sanctified. God’s will is that we will overcome the battle in our members.”
(Jeffrey Stivason – Place For Truth) For Christians, there are proverbial perennial questions that are, well, perennial. Every May graduating Christians seek the will of God for where they will take further education…. Continue reading
“Wear is a political animal who makes his living at the highest levels of progressive politics and working with The Gospel Coalition. He is billed at “President Obama’s ambassador to America’s believers” … And works for Tim Keller’s TGC.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) How politically gullible are many evangelical Christians today? Recent efforts to manipulate the conservative and the WOKE base appear to be glaringly obvious so we might at least assume that the most dedicated progressive political operatives think we are virtually clueless.
“As we’ve reported many times, the Evangelical Immigration Table led by Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Convention was founded by the National Immigration Forum, a group funded by George Soros to promote the free movement of peoples, another way of saying open borders. Russell Moore appeared at the National Immigration Forum meeting with former president Barack Obama’s Faith Advisor last week.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Ed Stetzer of Wheaton College and Christianity Today promoted the George Soros backed Evangelical Immigration Table’s newest Immigration Reform Package…. Continue reading
Kyle J. Howard & Beth Moore
“As the CEO of the popular black ministry, The Witness, Tisby employs such people as Ally Henny, a pro-abortion activist who was angry that there were white people in the movie theater watching a movie about Harriet Tubman, who Moore also praised.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Beth Moore somehow continues to find herself in bad company. And, as the Apostle Paul warned, we should not deceive ourselves, bad company ruins good morals (1 Corinthians 15:33). Continue reading
While we may feel disappointed when we learn of the moral failings of Christians we appreciate, admire, or learn from, we should never be shocked. Christians are able to sin just as nonbelievers are. The Bible never claims that we become perfected in this life—only that when we put our trust in Jesus for forgiveness of our sins, we will someday stand before the Lord clothed in his righteousness (2 Corinthians 5:21). Of course, a saving faith doesn’t see that as a license to sin—we should never sin so that “grace may abound” (Romans 6:1).
(Natasha Crain) News broke yesterday that popular Christian comedian and YouTuber John Crist has come forth with an admission of ongoing “sexual sin and addiction struggles” after multiple women exposed years of his sexually immoral behavior. Continue reading
The purpose is “an irreverently playful night of fundraising, fitness, sex talk, and exotic pole dance performances.” And of course, no sexual anarchy meeting is complete these days without making sure men dressed as women, or women dressed as men, are validated and welcomed.
(Linda Harvey – Mission: America) [Warning: graphic content] When I consider the long-term well-being of our children and what they are taught at school, my first thought always goes to pole-dancing. How about you? Continue reading
(Marsha West – Christian Research Network) Posted below is part 3 of a column I wrote for RenewAmerica in 2011 in which I revealed that religious syncretism (a blending of many different belief systems) has virtually reshaped the visible Church. I wasn’t alone in pointing out this fact. There were many others in the online apologetics and discernment ministries who were sounding the alarm. In light of what is going on in many churches, it is clear that the warning cry of “discerners” has been largely ignored and now the visible church is in considerable disarray. Not only were we not listened to, we’ve been marginalized, and in some cases we’re even hated, for exposing the apostasy that has changed the face of evangelicalism.
The dismantling of historic, orthodox, biblical Christianity has continued at break-neck speed to the point where the visible Church has become a haven for hirelings and goats who’ve set about butting the sheep out the church’s back door.
My primary focus for part 3 of the series is to show how Gnosticism and Man-Centered Psychology has gotten a firm grip on Christendom. How did this happen? In large part it happened because undiscerning Church leaders thought it was a good idea to adopt the Rick Warren “Purpose Driven” marketing strategy to grow their churches.
This short intro sets the stage for part 3 of “Purpose Driven Dismantling of Christianity.” Continue reading
“Chan also regularly partners with charismatic New Apostolic false prophets and false teachers like Todd White, calling them “great men of God” despite the fact that they’ve led so many people astray. All in all, it’s a good rule of thumb to avoid such men as Francis Chan, for they serve their own appetites.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Francis Chan made headlines earlier this year when he began to tour the country assaulting biblical Christianity partnering up with several compromised groups that call themselves “Christian” including the New Apostolic Reformation and Roman Catholics.
