(Protestia) Preaching from Ephesians 1:11-14, John MacArthur of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, took a moment to call out Joel Osteen and his heretical book Your Best Life Now, taking Osteen to task for the false promise that he presents in his book. MacArthur notes that for unbelievers, this is their best life, but for Christians, this is not our best life, rather our worst life, because our best life will be in heaven.
Tim Hurd of Bible Thumping Wingnut does an excellent weekly analysis so we’re using BTW’s video where Tim explains that for the first time in a long time GCC’s camera person turns the camera on the congregants, now that California will once again allow churches to gather in sanctuaries….

“If the police officer had not shot Bryant, the woman in pink would be dead. No one disputes it, they just don’t care. They need another George Floyd more than a junkie needs another fix, and if they have to manufacture it, well, dang it they were going to make one. Even in the face of irrefutable video evidence to the contrary.”
(Derek Hunter – Townhall) To produce some viruses for study, in the hope of eradicating them, scientists use monkey kidney cells. It’s the perfect environment for them to replicate; to grow. For the virus that is progressivism, the media is the monkey kidneys, and to eliminate the threat that this left-wing sibling of communism, socialism, and fascism poses to the world, that delivery device needs to be destroyed. Continue reading
“It appears to me that in our society today, victimization is spreading faster than Covid. It’s almost unbearable on many college campuses and cable TV. Every white person is racist, every straight man a woman-hater. No non-white male has a fair shot.”
(Bill O’Reilly) With the exception of Caucasian males, everybody can be a victim. It’s easy. Just summon up some unpleasantness in your life and assign blame. Use the word “systemic” a lot in formulating your grievances. Make sure you point out that you are expressing “your truth.” And certainly mention that you are speaking “truth to power.” Continue reading
Evidently, he has succumbed to the false teaching of “website orthodoxy,” a term coined by fellow contributor Seth Dunn which refers to a nefarious Bible-twister or false teacher having an orthodox statement of faith on their website, but ignoring it entirely in their body of work, sermons, books, or teachings.
(Protestia) A reporter for the Christian Post has demonstrated a frightening lack of discernment by categorizing famed blaspheming, pro-choice, pro-LGBT pastor and Democrat senator as a Christian, and then doubling down when challenged on it. Continue reading
“Critical race theory curriculum tells students that they fall into one of two categories – the oppressed or the oppressor – based solely on the color of their skin. It tells students that if they are white then they are privileged and racist, and makes them affirm this ideology through classroom discussion and assignments.”
(Kimberly Hermann – PJ Media) The Biden Department of Education has quietly proposed a new rule prioritizing the use of federal tax dollars for K-12 schools that replace traditional education with “culturally responsive teaching and learning” – more commonly referred to as critical race theory…. Continue reading
“We can’t possibly deny that demonic experiences are real and that the Devil is actively working to deceive people with real experiences dripping with sinister lies. Therefore, discernment is crucial.”
(Costi Hinn – For the Gospel) When it comes to analyzing dreams and visions, very few people are short on opinion.
Some seek dreams, visions, and other mystical experiences constantly yet don’t even know their Bible…. Continue reading
The Nazis perfected the art of indoctrinating the citizenry through propaganda and “fake news.” Joseph Goebbels, Nazi minister of propaganda, is credited with saying: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” and “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which government can play.”
(Steve McCann – American Thinker) I recently wrote a column wherein I accused the American Left and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Democrat party, of using Fascist or Nazi tactics in their determination to permanently transform the nation into a one-party hybrid socialist state by exploiting nonexistent “systemic racism” and baseless fears of “white supremacy.”….

Many people have “assessed the risks of getting COVID compared to the risks of an experimental medical treatment whose long-term effects are unknown, and decided that the former is a risk they’re willing to take.”
(John Daniel Davidson – The Federalist) Recent polls show about a quarter of American adults either don’t plan to get a COVID-19 vaccine or want to wait on it. The numbers have held steady for months: 27 percent in a recent Quinnipiac poll, 25 percent in an NPR/Marist poll from late March, and 30 percent in a Pew survey from mid-February. After federal health officials called for a pause in the distribution of Johnson and Johnson’s one-shot vaccine last week over fears of severe blood-clotting, the number of vaccine-hesitant Americans could be slightly higher now. Continue reading
“He wants to pack the court, admit two new states, end the filibuster, trash the Electoral College, keep the border open, and explore reparations and cash payments to illegal immigrants. “He” of course is also a construct. Biden has outsourced all these initiatives to “experts.” They understand that a president who wishes to be remembered as great for something won’t worry much about the nuts and bolts of the operation.”
(Victor Davis Hanson – American Greatness) These are the most radical first three months of a presidency since 1933, the most divisive—and certainly the most dangerous. And its catalyst is the myth of ol’ Joe from Scranton who has unleashed furies and hatreds never quite seen in modern American history. Continue reading
“I’m including what Joanna Gaines shared with Oprah about her relationship with the Almighty for the reason that she has made the claim during other interviews that God speaks directly to her. She revealed to Oprah’s audience that she has received special revelation from God since she was a child.”
(Marsha West – Christian Research Network) May the Lord have mercy upon us because we are only now beginning to pay the price of years of Bible studies that goes around the room asking: “What does this verse mean to you; what does it mean to your-self?” Ken Silva
Christians are being exhorted to put their minds on hold through meditation and take a step into the supernatural realm. Is it biblical to connect with the supernatural realm? Several years ago, “Pastor” Rob Bell, who once led the sheep astray at Mars Hill Bible Church in Grandville, MI, said the following:
Central to the Christian tradition, for thousands of years, have been disciplines of meditation, reflection, silence, and breathing. It was understood that to be a healthy person, to be fully connected with God, and fully centered you would spend significant parts of your day in silence–breathing, meditating–praying allowing the Spirit of God to transform you and touch you.
For a number of years, Rob Bell has been leading Christians into dangerous Eastern religious beliefs and rituals. Led astray by Bell and other Christian luminaries, the sheep believe it is possible to have a special experience with “God” by practicing “disciplines” that will supposedly transform those who practice them. What these people fail to realize is that they’re wading into shark infested waters. Continue reading
“The falsehood about how Sicknick died has been repeated by every Democratic politician, nearly every news and opinion outlet, and most Republican lawmakers.”
“This was just another massive lie used to gaslight the American people and justify an ongoing manhunt for Trump supporters who had the audacity to protest an illegitimate election.”
(Julie Kelly – American Greatness) Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, according to a bombshell today in the Washington Post, died January 7 of natural causes not from injuries sustained in the Capitol protest the day before. The D.C. medical examiner told the Post that Sicknick suffered two strokes caused by a blood clot at the base of his brain stem.
“Francisco J. Diaz, the medical examiner, said the autopsy found no evidence the 42-year-old officer suffered an allergic reaction to chemical irritants, which Diaz said would have caused Sicknick’s throat to quickly seize,” the Post reported. “Diaz also said there was no evidence of internal or external injuries.” Continue reading
“The worst of the cancel-cultist, value-signaling companies generally pander to China’s tyrannical regime, which uses slave labor, murders dissidents and harvests their organs, currently has a million people in concentration camps (the Uighurs), and is accused of genocide. So it’s not just that these companies’ “virtue” isn’t actually virtue — it’s that it isn’t even sincere.”
(Selwyn Duke – New American Magazine) In 212 B.C., 460 scholars were “canceled,” permanently, when Emperor Qin Shi Huang had them buried alive for owning forbidden books. The Qin, who’d united China, made the argument, “We don’t want to hear people criticize the present by referring to the past,” Harvard University Chinese history professor Peter Bol told the BBC in 2012. “The past is irrelevant. History is irrelevant. And so you have the burning of books, you have the burying of scholars, of scholarly critics.” Continue reading
“Hopefully, human nature will take over. After allegiance to family, allegiance to a nation is strongest. Most Americans would view national policy dictated by unelected and accountable global organizations, global corporations, and ideologues as a New World Order. That is what The Great Reset and Agenda 2030 are driving and the Biden administration is a willing partner.”
(Stacy Lennox – PJ Media) New World Order used to be the province of conspiracy theorists. However, the phrase is now descriptive of what we see daily in the news. There is tremendous pressure to reorder society in the West, using the pandemic as a pretext. In America, the result has been an assault on our God-given rights on an unprecedented scale…. Continue reading
“Over the past several years, sadly, it’s become almost impossible to tell who poses the biggest threat to our democracy—foreign adversaries or our own government. Tens of millions of Americans undoubtedly would argue it’s the latter.”
(Julie Kelly – American Greatness) The freshly reelected Republican senator from Nebraska had kind words this week for Joe Biden’s intelligence chiefs. “The American people are blessed to have an [intelligence community] as serious as ours,” Senator Ben Sasse said during Wednesday’s Senate Intelligence Committee hearing…. Continue reading
“These people are so disconnected from reality it is truly frightening. Either that or they continue to assume the American people are very, very stupid when it is becoming clearer and clearer that it is the radical leftists who fraudulently got Biden into office and depend on him to read whatever they put on the teleprompter.”
(Patricia McCarthy – American Thinker) Barack Obama made it abundantly clear that he not only loathed these United States, but he was also embarrassed by his own nation and its citizens. He did tremendous damage over his eight years in office. He treated our enemies like allies and our allies like enemies. He set race relations back at least fifty years having been indoctrinated in the odious Jeremiah Wright brand of anti-Americanism. Continue reading
(Peter Navarro – The Washington Times) The former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Robert Redfield, believes the SARS-CoV-2 virus originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
If Dr. Redfield is correct — and he almost certainly is — then Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health must assume significant responsibility for a global pandemic that has killed over half-a-million Americans, kicked tens of millions of Americans to the unemployment curb and drained trillions of dollars of wealth from the American economy. Continue reading
(Capstone Report) With the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) promoting diversity and multiculturalism to its member Christian schools, the Woke virus is set to spread from seminaries and colleges into Christian K-12 schools. And, it won’t even spare homeschoolers. As we reported earlier, the ACSI partnered with UnifiED to provide diversity, inclusion, racial reconciliation and multiculturalism training to Christian schools. What is important to note is the widespread reach of ACSI. Not only does ACIS serve the accreditation function for day schools and hybrid schools, but it produces homeschool curricula. Continue reading
(Bill O’Reilly – “A Trifecta of Chaos”) It’s a one, two, three punch. Massive government spending and aggressive taxation, open borders, woke fascism. That’s what all Americans are facing even though many of them have no clue.
Let’s discuss that for a moment. Always in this country we have had citizens too lazy or selfish to pay attention to the common good. During the revolution, historians estimate that half of the colonists supported King George. They were called Tories. Today, you can visit a street in Cambridge, Massachusetts called Tory Row to see where some of them lived. Others died with ropes around their necks. The rebels were an impulsive bunch. Continue reading
Late in his presidency, Donald Trump issued an executive order establishing The 1776 Commission, an advisory committee designed to encourage American schools to provide students with a “patriotic education,” and to counter the America-hating narrative of critical race theory and the 1619 Project. Biden revoked Trump’s executive order — on grounds that the “systemic racism that has plagued our nation for far, far too long couldn’t be ignored any longer.”
(David Horowitz & John Perazzo – PJ Media) Formally introducing his cabinet to the public, Joe Biden proudly declared: “This is the first [time] in American history that the cabinet looks like America.” Looking at the actual appointments and not just the gender, skin color, and ethnic origins of the Biden team, it is a team that may look like America but doesn’t think like America. In fact, it is a team whose outlook is anti-American. Continue reading
“Unless she repents, the blackest of darkness is reserved for her forever. That doesn’t make me happy.”
(Reformation Charlotte) In an interview with Justin Peters, Susan Heck, a conservative women’s Bible-study author and teacher made the assertion that Beth Moore, who she says is “adulterating the Word of God,” is on her way to Hell unless she repents.
“My concerns about her,” Susan says, “poor hermeneutics. “She has terrible rules of interpreting Scriptures. Continue reading
“Hillsong has hosted Roman Catholic masses, has put on literal circus performances, held sleazy Christmas performances and paraded scantily clad women across the stage, and featured a “naked cowboy” at a women’s conference followed by a “naked Santa” at another conference. It’s easy to see why so many Bible-believing Christians refuse to even allow their presence through music in their churches.”
(Reformation Charlotte) Hillsong has always been a scandal-plagued church. The global organization which is headquartered in Sydney, Australia, is a popular, worldly organization that masquerades as a church but attracts celebrities and carnal-minded people who would rather not have to deal with the “mundane,” such as biblical theology and actual Christian teaching, and would rather just be entertained. Continue reading
“Heil Hitler!” repeated countless times from morning to bedtime.
“American corporate elites have financed the ascendancy of the radical left as the left learned their lesson well from the Nazis and the wealthy elites did not. As virtually all the financial support for the Democrats to manipulate the 2020 election came from these naïve and credulous buffoons. Thus, unleashing radical leftism, societal chaos and a senescent president on the United States….”
(Steve McCann – The American Thinker) I recently wrote a column wherein I accused the American Left and its wholly owned subsidiary, the Democrat party, of using Fascist or Nazi tactics in their determination to permanently transform the nation into a one-party hybrid socialist state by exploiting nonexistent “systemic racism” and baseless fears of “white supremacy.”….

(The Last Refuge) Boy howdy is there a disconnect amid the outlook of most ‘conservatives’ when it comes to corporations and capitalism. This tweet is a great place to recognize the distinction between the objectives of multinational corporations and their hatred of capitalism.
First, they were not “corporations” on the call, that is not an accurate description. The assembly was a group of “multinationals” discussing their objectives, goals and outlooks on politics. There is a difference between an ordinary corporation and a multinational corporation. Multinationals hate capitalism. Continue reading
“If Republicans don’t speak up, who will? Not any Democrat. They are busy dragging children into the nearest sewer—those who manage to escape abortion, that is, which is the pinnacle of “women’s rights” in the Dems’ world. And pastors? Only a few have the courage or understanding to enter this arena. The pastoral track record is abysmal in defense of children against the devastating influence of rainbow radicals.”
(Linda Harvey – Mission: America) “It’s for the children!” Politicians, pundits, activists of all stripes rush to play the baby card to draw support to their cause or candidacy.
But often it’s completely insincere. Despite a national pro-family platform, kids can’t depend on many Republicans. Continue reading
(Rick Becker – Famine In The Land) We live in an age where the gospel is hardly recognizable in the visible church. The proliferation of false teachers and false doctrines have produced hordes of false converts, and sadly, thousands of ignorant believers who are deceived in certain areas. In this post, we’ll examine a few of the false assumptions held by many in the visible church. The false teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation, Word of Faith and Prosperity Gospel have contributed to these false assumptions.
1. The assumption that God exists to change your circumstances, make you happy, and give you your best life now. Continue reading
