“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
“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.

“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.

“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
“Many of our coastal elites see nothing much exceptional in America, past and present. They prefer the culture and values of the European Union without worrying that the EU’s progressive utopian promises have been wrecked by open borders, economically stultifying regulations, and unapologetic and anti-democratic efforts to curb free expression and local autonomy.”
(Victor Davis Hanson – Townhall) The American founders institutionalized the best of a long Western tradition of representative government with the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. These contracts outlined the rare privileges and responsibilities of new American citizens. Continue reading
If you accept that children can learn “almost anything,” it means that if kids are presented with a “strange deviation” (as homosexuality), some might – for reasons we don’t understand, being “ripe for new things” – try or even adopt that thing. LGBTs assume that if kids are told that various historical figures were LGBT, or worse, if kids are told “THIS is how gays make love,” given enough students, some will “come our way.”
(Paul Cameron – Renew America) In 1987, the gays in Boston, assuming homosexuality is learned, asserted:
“We shall sodomize your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas, in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your houses of Congress….

Beth Moore’s caveat that “all Scripture is inspired and authoritative truth” should not satisfy her critics, for all the aforementioned Red Letter liberals -from Wallis to McLaren – would echo her sentiments. But, they would say, if forced to choose between Jesus and Paul, we should choose Jesus. Orthodox believers in Jesus recognize that we are never forced to choose between Jesus and Paul.
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) In her latest slide into apostasy, Beth Moore ‘cast shade’ upon the Apostle Paul, who wrote 13 of the New Testament’s 27 books. Claiming that she would rather follow Jesus than Paul, as though the two disagree, the wild-eyed Social Justice princess just ventured down a damnable doctrinal road. Continue reading
“Rohr’s spirituality is in the same camp as someone like Episcopalian panentheist Matthew Fox (author of The Coming of the Cosmic Christ). Rohr wrote the foreword to a 2007 book called How Big is Your God? by Jesuit priest (from India) Paul Coutinho. In Coutinho’s book, he describes an interspiritual community where people of all religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity) worship the same God. For Rohr to write the forward to such a book, he would have to agree with Coutinho’s views.”
(Lighthouse Trails) An April 2019 Religion News Service article titled, “For Millennials, Mysticism Shows a Path to Their Home Faiths” reveals how young (millennial) evangelicals are “[d]iscovering the Christian mystical tradition through the work of Franciscan friar Richard Rohr.” The article states: Continue reading
“It struck me that this was a march against people. Most radical protest and direct action is aimed at officialdom or government or people with power. This macabre schlep through London was aimed squarely at ordinary people. Banners and placards made no disguise of the marchers’ contempt for how the masses live.”
(Brendon O’Neil – Spiked) Anyone who doubts that the green movement is morphing into a millenarian cult should take a close look at Greta Thunberg. This poor young woman increasingly looks and sounds like a cult member…. Continue reading
“We’ve had Bi Pride, we’ve had Black Pride, we have Trans Pride, so now we’ve got Muslim LGBTQI Pride. It’ll celebrate the diversity within the BAME community and the LGBT community to show we’re not all the same, we don’t have just one identity. We all have different identities.”
Just when you thought the homosexual mafia couldn’t make any further inroads, the last group of people on planet Earth you would expect to start accommodating homosexuals is Muslims…. Continue reading
“Illegal immigration is not only fiscally burdensome on American taxpayers to the sum of billions every year, but an increase of foreign workers in the U.S. labor market due to legal immigration levels — where about 1.2 million immigrants are admitted every year — reduces the wages of America’s working and middle class. Conversely, less immigration increases Americans’ wages.”
(John Binder – Breitbart) An annually released report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimates that that illegal population living in the U.S. has risen nearly two million in two years, now standing at about 14.3 million illegal aliens. Continue reading
He may have his genitals “surgically removed, which would make him a castrated delusional man who wants to be a woman. He may add, through surgery, breast implants — which would make him a very bizarre looking castrated delusional man who wants to be a woman. But nothing will ever make him a woman, or bring him any closer to being a woman, regardless of how extreme or tragic the act or desire.”
(Selwyn Duke – New American) Calling someone a “biological male” makes as much sense as speaking of a canine dog, feline cat, bovine cow, mechanical machine, or biological human — and we shouldn’t use the redundant term. So says writer Florian Barbedienne, warning that it’s a “tautological” propaganda device designed to promote the Made-up Sexual Status (MUSS or “transgender”) agenda. Continue reading
“Jen Hatmaker is not the first professing Christian to embrace the radical leftist pro-choice politician. Lecrae, who is known as the “rapper who happens to be Christian,” has also departed biblical conservatism in favor of progressive social activism and embraced Stacy Abrams.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Jen Hatmaker, close personal friend of Beth Moore who is famous for her television show on HGTV, has teamed up with some of the most radical feminist progressive liberals in the country to promote women empowerment. Among the line up is radical pro-choice politician, Stacy Abrams, who, back in April, denounced Georgia’s pro-life “Heartbeat Bill” as “evil.” Continue reading
Only one other example of the Marxism-oozing Social Justice piece should be sufficient. After acknowledging that Arnade is not a believer, TGC blog slathers praise upon his rebuke for the church in the book for not doing enough to mitigate the horrors of capitalism.
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) Marxism violently killed 94 million people in the 20th Century. More than a hundred million Marxists starved to death while Capitalist nations flourished. And yet, Marxism is making in-roads into American evangelicalism, and one of its more prominent publications, The Gospel Coalition, lamented Capitalism as being contrary to “human dignity.” Continue reading
“[T]he real source of Trump derangement syndrome is his desire to wage a multifront pushback — politically, socially, economically and culturally — against what might be called the elite postmodern progressive world.”
(Victor Davis Hanson – Real Clear Politics) Donald Trump is waging a nonstop, all-encompassing war against progressive culture, in magnitude analogous to what 19th-century Germans once called a Kulturkampf.
As a result, not even former President George W. Bush has incurred the degree of hatred from the left that is now directed at Trump. For most of his time in office, Trump, his family, his friends and his businesses have been investigated, probed, dissected and constantly attacked. Continue reading
This article by CRN managing editor Marsha West was first published September 13, 2017.
In 2012 I penned a series of articles entitled “Liberals Created the Culture of Evil and Death.” Due to the aggressive tactics of the “fake news” media and counterfeit Christians, I decided to re-post part 3. One of the liberals who has been masquerading as a Christian is founder and editor of Sojourners magazine, Jim Wallis. Wallis is one of those who profess Christianity, but adheres to “politically entrenched concepts of equality and redistribution of wealth.” In other words, Marxism. These ideas are rooted in Wallis’ “Christian” beliefs. And thanks to progressive clergy who hold the same views, these ideas are firmly entrenched in American churches. Even though Rev. Wallis is no longer serving as Barack Obama’s “spiritual adviser” he remains in the spotlight. What he’d like us to think is that when it comes to what makes for an authentic Christian, look no further than Jim Wallis. As an aside, it may surprise you to learn that Lynne Hybels, co-founder of Willow Creek Community Church, is a columnist for Sojourners magazine. Continue reading
I believe that all children should be free to bunk off school to attend today’s Climate Strike. But only if they can get at least 80 percent of the answers right on this climate quiz prepared by the Global Warming Policy Foundation.
Here is a taster…
(John Delingpole – Breitbart) Across the Western world tens of thousands of brainwashed kids are bunking off school in what has misleadingly been described as a ‘Climate Strike.’
No. A strike involves the withholding of productive labour. These kids are simply playing truant using the best ‘dog ate my homework’ excuse evah: ‘If I don’t do this, the planet will die!!’ Continue reading

(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) John MacArthur is one of the foremost living defenders of the faith in this day and age and one of the few well-known pastors left who aren’t afraid to call out false teachers. Recently, MacArthur preached a sermon at a Master’s Seminary chapel on Jude — defending the faith and calling out false teachers — whereby he called out the fallen pastor Tullian Tchividjian on his heresy of antinomianism. Continue reading

God has given us clear instructions in Scripture that offer protection to His church. Every time we decide to break His commands, we only break ourselves. A pastor is not simply someone who is willing. A pastor is not simply someone who is gifted. A pastor is not simply someone who is educated. He is a man who meets all God’s qualifications. This is not legalism or biblical militancy. This is safety for God’s church. It’s time to wake up.”
(Leonardo Blair – The Christian Post) Dale Partridge, a pastor and house church planter and “true” friend of late California Pastor Jarrid Wilson, says Wilson had expressed a desire to step down from his high pressure role as associate pastor prior to his suicide. Continue reading
“Always you’re surprised by who all of a sudden defects. And what causes that? Well briefly, ‘Certain persons have crept in unnoticed.’ Persons of influence, teachers in seminaries, writers, theologians, but false teachers. That is they’re inside the Christian wall. They’re part of the church. They’re supposedly representatives of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
(Enemies Within The Church) Predictions of a split in the Southern Baptist Convention have intensified since the infamous “Resolution 9,” which endorsed Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality as useful “analytical tools,” was passed during the Convention meeting in June…. Continue reading
“How many guns weren’t designed as “weapons of war”? Bolt-action rifles were once state-of-the-art weapons of war. So was the flintlock. Go back even further, and clubs were weapons of war, and many people are still killed with them today. Should we outlaw baseball bats?”
(Selwyn Duke – Renew America) How did AR-15s become the plastic straws of the gun world? It’s simple: Demagogues need scapegoats. Yet just as banning plastic straws won’t make a dent in the ocean-polluting plastics problem, banning “assault rifles” (which aren’t) won’t save even one life. Continue reading
The problem is not just the library, but within classrooms, where teachers give students suggested reading lists. DeGroff paints a picture that will leave any concerned adult heartbroken but also angry. Current themes for younger children include many titles that promote gender confusion and homosexual parenting but also the distorted messages of other “social justice” agendas.
[Warning: graphic content]
(Linda Harvey – Mission” America) You take your children to the library. What a wholesome place, brimming with sweet stories and mind-expanding ideas as kids discover the delights within the covers of a book. Oh, the love of reading! Nothing here but candy canes and lollipops. Continue reading
