“J.D. Greear is one of the foremost leading this movement as he — the president of the Southern Baptist Convention — cheers on the rebellion of women in pulpits around the globe. And his latest ovation goes to “ex-lesbian” (who says she’s still attracted to women) female preacher who affirms the heresies of Bethel Church, Jackie Hill Perry.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) The Southern Baptist Convention is so far down a trajectory that it’s nearly impossible to imagine any kind of turn-around at this point…. Continue reading
“Sadly, sin corrupts our minds so that we make ingenious defenses for sinful conduct (e.g. Eph. 2:3; 4:17, 18; Titus 1:15; 2 Tim. 3:8; Col. 1:21; Rom. 8:6-7). Indeed, we are chillingly adept at putting a virtuous face on sin. Satan encourages this activity; he excites the remnants of sin in us to think about sin itself in an unbiblical (and sinful!) manner.”
(Robert Spinney – Reformation 21) Scripture reports that Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2 Cor. 11:14). Understand that Satan’s deception extends beyond disguising his person; he also disguises his activities. Especially when Satan tempts Christians, he presents sins as things that are not so bad, and sometimes even good. Continue reading
“God is light (1 John 1:5) and His saints are “the children of light.” (Luke 16:8) But the children of the Wicked One are darkness” (Eph. 5:8) What communion, then, can there be between members of families so dissimilar? “Christ” and “Belial”—what concord can there be between one to whom Christ is everything, and one who despises and rejects Him?”
By A.W. Pink
Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14
This passage gives utterance to a Divine exhortation for those belonging to Christ to hold aloof from all intimate associations with the Ungodly. It expressly forbids them entering into alliances with the unconverted. It definitely prohibits the children of God walking arm-in-arm with worldlings. It is an admonition applying to every phase and department of our lives—religious, domestic social, commercial. And never, perhaps, was there a time when it more needed pressing on Christians than now. The days in which we are living are marked by the spirit of compromise. On every side we behold unholy mixtures, ungodly alliances, unequal yokes. Many professing Christians appear to be trying how near to the world they may walk and yet go to Heaven. Continue reading
“We want to release the kingdom of God and presence and power to all those in our Facebook communities. And so today I want to release miracles for people who have the Coronavirus…”
(Rick Becker – Famine In The Land) Kevin and Theresa Dedmon are products of the Bethel cult. The couple believed their declarations had an effect on the Carr fire, and their delusion continues as they declared healing over people infected with the Coronavirus. Sitting with the couple are at least three people wearing glasses – one would think they would begin declaring healing over those sitting a few feet from them. If the Coronavirus cannot live in the presence of God, we must ask the question, which presence is the bespectacled Bill Johnson hosting? Continue reading
“Full-stop. What is there to solve? Again, what is he talking about? Homosexuality requires solving? The heck it does. It requires repentance.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Aligning yourself with The Gospel Coalition has proven time and again to be the death-rattle of orthodox evangelicals. Not long after cozying up to the dark-money leftist organization that masquerades as a ministry, most TGC acolytes eventually cave on important social issues.
And sadly, this is true with Tim Challies. Continue reading
“Jim Bakker spends his time on television bilking people for money by selling fraudulent food and medical supplies. Just last week, Bakker was ordered to cease and desist making claims that his “Silver Solution” cures the coronavirus. Decades later, Bakker is still a fraud — and Robert Jeffress uses him to promote himself.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Robert Jeffress used to be a respectable man. He used to be a well-known conservative pastor who acted like he believed the gospel and believed in conservative biblical morals and values…. Continue reading
“Think on this, that news outlets would be so interested in influencing the outcome of a US election that they would carelessly or selfishly promote hysteria and outrage and even go so far as to unilaterally call an outbreak a pandemic, sparking global panic, is unconscionable.”
(Elizabeth Prata – The End Time) Yesterday CNN, (Cable News Network) decided to unilaterally call the covid-19 flu outbreak a pandemic. I wasn’t aware that CNN reporters had global medical expertise enough to decide for the world whether the coronavirus had reached a criterion-laden level of that sort. CNN has had hidden talents all this time. Continue reading
“It’s this type of suppression of facts that highlights Dr. Brown’s deliberate attempt to hide his deep connection and roots to the NAR. Is this why Messianic Jews are angry with ‘One For Israel’ being tainted by Dr. Michael Brown, Dan Juster and Asher Intrater? And this all appears to have escalated due to his involvement in the latest Todd Bentley scandal.”
(Churchwatch Central) It appears Dr. Michael Brown is now no longer in control of information regarding his involvement in the New Apostolic Reformation. This information appears to be coming through on three fronts: Continue reading
“The prosperity gospel is arguably the second-most nefarious and subversive false gospel plaguing the American Church today, right behind the social justice gospel. The prosperity gospel teaches that God is, in a sense, a genie in a bottle and by having enough faith, you can get what you want from him — material gain.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Elevation Church is one of the most subversive and dangerous pseudo-Christian movements in the world…. Continue reading
Remember the old interpretative method that asked each reader what the passage of Scripture means to them personally? We all know how dangerous this method of interpretation is—right?
(Josh Buice – Delivered By Grace) Every so often, during political debates, you will hear people talk about the importance of a proper reading of The Constitution of the United States. The argument is that if you allow people to revise the meaning of the original Framers of the Constitution through a modern revisionist approach, the nation will be led to embrace whatever the cultural winds of the day desires.

“Rather than standing in opposition to the critical theory/intersectional notion of privilege, Butterfield explicitly identifies herself as a recipient of white privilege and economic privilege, and one who uses that privilege to “further the kingdom” by seeking out the “underprivileged.” Who are those underprivileged? Not only the poor and racial minority, but the sexual minorities as well. While not using the language of “sexual minorities,” Butterfield nevertheless identifies her heterosexual progressive Christian friends as those who recognize their own heterosexual privilege and seek to extend them to their LGBTQ friends.”
By Hiran Diaz
On March 4th, Ligionier Ministries’ Table Talk Magazine published an article by Rosaria Butterfield titled “Intersectionality and the Church.” Given that the subjects of Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and resolution 9 of the Southern Baptist Convention are hot button issues, the article’s publication is well timed. Not only that, but given lingering questions about Butterfield’s own orthodoxy, the article serves to draw attention to Butterfield’s rejection of intersectionality as an analytical tool compatible with the Christian faith. This has the effect of vindicating Butterfield as “one of us,” a fellow social justice contra and ally in the war against the ethical postmodernization of the church. Continue reading
“If this feels overwhelming and scary, well, it is. You’re being bombarded with progressive pastors and leftist think-tanks (the ERLC) that are daily working to subvert commonly held Christian ethos in order to invent a type of Christianity that is more palatable and culturally relevant. They’re using the subversion of the English language to do it.”
By Ian Franklin
No one ever believes they’re on the wrong side of a war – that they’re the devil’s minions. That’s kind of how the whole deception works. You’re always the hero of the war you wage. Continue reading
“Your show is hereby advised to immediately cease and desist from making misleading claims regarding the Silver Solution’s effectiveness as they violate New York’s consumer protection statutes, Executive Law § 63(12) and General Business Law Article 22-A §§ 349 and 350, which prohibit fraudulent and deceptive business practices and false advertising.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Jim Bakker is a fraud who has spent his entire life defrauding people in the name of Christ. It’s no wonder groups like Right Wing Watch continue to look poorly upon Christianity as these charismatic frauds continue to lie, cheat, and steal from people in order to make a buck….

[T]hat’s not at all what the Senator’s comments were referencing. There was no mention of Senate Republicans losing elections, or of a grass-roots movement. The targeted “you” was directed solely at Justice Gorsuch and Justice Kavanaugh. The defense was so poor that even notorious leftists rolled their eyes.
(Peter Heck – Disrn) In July of last year, Senator Chuck Schumer was beside himself. Pacing the halls of the Capitol,… Continue reading
To put this into perspective, there are essentially three levels of the “gay Christianity” movement.
Watch the video.
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Baylor, a private Christian university located in Waco, Texas, is known as the largest Baptist university in the world with approximately 17,200 students on its 1,000-acre campus and is affiliated with the Texas Baptist Convention, which is subsequently connected to the Southern Baptist Convention.

Biblical counselors have erred by assuming that one story is the only story. To keep our errors to a minimum, we work to listen more and say less. Good advice certainly—but there is more we can say.
(Ed Welch) Listen to Scripture, listen to people. This is how we grow in our care and counsel. And grow we must if we want to help someone who has stories beneath stories. Most addicts do.
Flea is the bass player for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. He is a sensitive soul whose father left when he was six…. Continue reading
“On the Diamond Princess, six deaths have occurred among the passengers, constituting a case fatality rate of 0.85 percent. Unlike the data from China and elsewhere, where sorting out why a patient died is extremely difficult, we can assume that these are excess fatalities—they wouldn’t have occurred but for SARS-CoV-2. The most important insight is that all six fatalities occurred in patients who are more than 70 years old. Not a single Diamond Princess patient under age 70 has died. If the numbers from reports out of China had held, the expected number of deaths in those under 70 should have been around four.”
(Jeremy Samuel Faust – Slate) There are many compelling reasons to conclude that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is not nearly as deadly as is currently feared. But COVID-19 panic has set in nonetheless. You can’t find hand sanitizer in stores, and N95 face masks are being sold online for exorbitant prices, never mind that neither is the best way to protect against the virus (yes, just wash your hands)….

Modalism is a heretical belief that rejects the orthodox view of the holy Trinity. For those who are unclear about this, you need to know that a belief in the Trinity is an essential of Christianity. It is one of the non-negotiables. Those who deny the existence of the Trinity or reject the settled orthodox view set forth in Scripture are not true Christians. With this background in mind, Jeff Maples of Reformation Charlotte has a video of Steven Furtick that makes it crystal clear that he does not have an orthodox view of the Trinity. Maples writes:
Steven Furtick is a heretic, undoubtedly. He preaches a false prosperity gospel and bilks his congregation for money…. Continue reading
Bernie Sanders, is, some believe, very close to Marxism. Sanders is not the Nordic-style “democratic socialist” he sometimes claims to be. During his political life Sanders stated that he was so “excited” about Cuba’s communist revolution; when the United States was containing communism in Central America, Sanders flew to Nicaragua to lend credibility to the Marxist Sandinistas; as a young man he and his wife honeymooned in the Soviet Union and came back full of praise for it. Practically, Sanders favors nationalizing major industries such as higher education, healthcare, and even the internet, programs that fall well outside the mainstream of U.S. politics and more closely resemble the central planning committees in Cuba and Venezuela. Long-time Democratic spokesman, James Carville, in a public tiff with Sanders, said “[unlike you], at least I am not a communist.”
(Peter Jones – truthxchange) The term “socialism” is on everyone’s lips right now. Most of the Democratic presidential candidates accept and use it as a benign political term, while voters look to it in hope for a less cynical or heartless society…. Continue reading
Paul admonished Timothy to protect the faith.
To manipulate and distort that truth, or to mix it with error, is to invite God’s eternal wrath. That’s why Paul told the Galatians, “If any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!” (Galatians 1:9).
(John MacArthur – Grace To You) Any literal shepherd tasked with feeding and leading a flock of lambs would be thought deranged if he regarded wolves as potential pets to be domesticated and amalgamated into the fold. Suppose he actively sought and tried to befriend young wolves, presuming he could teach them to mingle with his sheep—insisting against all wise counsel that his experiment might succeed, and if it does, that the wolves will acquire the sheep’s gentleness and the sheep will learn beneficial things from the wolves….

“We need to recognize right up front that the defining feature of polyamory is not “deep relationships, care for others, hospitality, and community.” The defining feature is the desire to have romantic/sexual relationships with multiple people that you are not married to. If you remove that part—the part that is sinful—we aren’t talking about polyamory anymore. But it’s precisely that desire for sexually immoral relationships that Christians must ruthlessly put to death in the name of Jesus. That’s why telling Christians, “Hey, there something good in polyamory, don’t go too hard on it,” is pastorally disastrous.”
(Denny Burk) If you had asked me ten years ago whether evangelicals would ever give up ground on the issue of homosexuality, I would have said “no way!” Sure, the evangelical movement has always had its “progressive wing.” And yes, even the term “evangelical” has always been notoriously difficult to define….

“Be it known that Roman Catholicism is not another denomination of the faith. It is not akin to Baptists, as Moore stated. It is a false religion more akin to Islam or Wicca than anything God has anything to do with. I beg you ladies, with all I have in me, not to follow Beth Moore or absorb any of her teachings or read anything she has written or listen to anything she has to say. Her lengthy time of rebellion against God and His word has only served to harden her into a person who brings heresy and corruption in the true faith.”
(Elizabeth Prata – The End Time) A dear sister sent me information related to a new ‘teaching’ series Beth Moore has begun, called, “Developing Compassion for the Sexually Abused – Part 1“. Apparently there are three parts to the series…. Continue reading
“Bills recommending bans on this child butchery are now filed in South Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama and Georgia (just introduced). Many are named the “Vulnerable Child Protection Act.” A bill in Colorado was introduced but killed by the Democrats there. The bill in Idaho is being held up by a Republican committee chair.”
(Linda Harvey – Mission: America) The vote was unanimous. As the chairman’s gavel came down sharply, he declared, “The bill is passed!” And the crowds in the gallery erupted in applause and cheers. The bill was a no-brainer, banning any medical treatment for anorexia/bulemia that affirmed the delusion of obesity in a normal weight individual…. Continue reading
“Hatmaker’s problem isn’t with Evangelicalism, it’s with God and His Word. It literally can’t be any clearer that a practicing homosexual is outside of the bounds of true conversion.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Jen Hatmaker has been on a path to destruction for a long time. Hatmaker first came out of the closet of homosexual affirmation during an interview with Jonathan Merritt, son of former Southern Baptist president, James Merritt. Subsequently, the SBC book store Lifeway pulled her materials from their shelves. Continue reading
