Priest Loses It Over Pope’s Recent Pagan Worship, Posts Protest Video

“We would like to encourage Fr. Goring of Ottawa to become a Protestant. We would also encourage him to understand that the Mass of the Roman church and its Maryolotry is as pagan as any ritual found in the Amazon.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  After Pope Francis bowed to worship a statue of a topless Amazonian fertility goddess this week, at least one Romanist priest ‘lost it’ on video and posted his angst over Pope’s apostasy to the Internet. Pulpit & Pen wrote about that pagan worship at the Vatican in the post, Pope Francis Worships Topless Earth Goddess With Pagans at the Vatican. Continue reading

Known by Jesus vs simply religious

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’ Matthew 7:21-23 (NASB) 

This life here and now on planet Earth is only a small fragment of reality. I once had a fellow try to shut this blog down with his hateful attack on me and everyone who commented here. One of his attacks was that we are paying way too much attention to eternity. In his “theology” we needed to forget all about that and treat it as a myth because this life is what its all about….

Are You Really A Christian?

“Now I know full well that at this point there already will be some angry Christians – angry not at her, but at me – for daring to even point out the marked inconsistencies between her walk and talk. They will drag out the old ‘you are not supposed to judge anyone’ baloney and seek to condemn me for even discussing this. … Um, of course we are to judge. We are under biblical obligation to do so. We are to counsel and warn those who claim to be Christ’s to live a life worthy of those claims. Our walk must match our talk, otherwise we are just deceiving ourselves. And no one wants to hear those frightening words of Christ one day.”

(Bill Muehlenberg – Culture Watch)  This is a shocking case of a believer’s walk not matching their talk: Continue reading

‘Women Should Be Pastors’ Was Central Theme of SBC Conference

“A famous anti-Trump, liberal lady-pastor made national headlines this year for sexually harassing a gay member of her church staff. Bill Hybels, now suspected of sexually abusing staff members, is a fully egalitarian church. Contrary to Boz Tchvidjian’s opinion, the woman abused at Willow Creek would not have been abused had she not been in the room to make decisions.”

(Pulpit & Pen)  Under the guise of supporting abuse victims, the Democrat-controlled Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) hosted a conference over the weekend with the main underlying purpose of advocating for an end to male-leadership in the denomination. Continue reading

A Good Soldier of Christ Jesus

12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:12-13 (NASB) 

The Christian has been called by God to serve the Lord Jesus as His bondservant or slave (δοῦλος). This role of bondservant also includes being His obedient disciple and valiant warrior. I grew up in an era in which there just was not much turmoil in the churches I was part of. The pastor was considered the one who should take moral stands on issues and proclaim the truth to those in darkness, but the rest of the folks in the church did not consider themselves soldiers of Christ Jesus except when they sang songs such as Onward Christian Soldiers….

The ‘Never Trump’ Coalition That Decided Eh, Nevermind, He’s Fine

“Few changes of heart have been as head-spinning as the social conservatives and evangelical Christians who now consider Mr. Trump a hero. Many of the conservative women who once saw him as a boor have come to believe that for too long they were focused on the wrong qualities in presidential candidates. They wanted someone pious when they should have been looking for someone who could throw punches.”

(Jeremy W. Peters – MSN)  In 2016, Erick Erickson could not have been clearer. Donald Trump was “a racist” and “a fascist.” It was no wonder, Mr. Erickson wrote, that “so many people with swastikas in their Twitter profile pics” supported him. “I will not vote for Donald Trump. Ever,” he insisted, adding his voice to the chorus of Never Trump Republicans. Continue reading

Two PCA Presbyteries Request Missouri Presbytery to Investigate Greg Johnson, Questioning His ‘Side B’ Views

“This Report is made because a majority of the members of Westminster Presbytery and many members of her churches are aggrieved by the public reports about the Christian character of Teaching Elder Greg Johnson, and we have a desire to pursue the peace, unity, and purity of the Presbyterian Church in America, for the sake of the honor and majesty of the Lord Jesus Christ, as the King and Head thereof.”

(The Aquila Report) Westminster Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) voted on August 10, 2019 to request the Missouri Presbytery to investigate the public reports that Teaching Elder (TE) Greg Johnson identifies himself as a homosexual, and yet continues to serve as a teaching elder in the PCA.

‘Hundreds’ Of Young People Regret Gender Transition, Seek Reversal

After speaking publicly about her transition, Evans recalled being confronted by a young woman “with a beard” who also regretted her transition. “She said she felt shunned by the LGBT community for being a traitor. So I felt I had to do something.”

(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Wire)  A female who transitioned to male as a teenager is speaking out about transgender regret. 

Twenty-eight-year-old Charlie Evans told Sky News in a recent interview that she’s spoken to “hundreds” of young people, mostly same-sex attracted women, who regret their gender transition. She also encountered an “online community of 5,000 in a similar position,” according to the network (video report below).   Continue reading

Stephen Miller Exposes the Deep State: ‘A Collection of Permanent Bureaucrats Enmeshed Inside the Federal Government’

Miller said in his years at President Trump’s side, he has seen up close and personal what “deep state saboteurs” do when they disagree with Trump’s policies.

(Matthew Boyle – Breitbart) Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, joined Breitbart News Sunday on SiriusXM 125 the Patriot Channel this weekend to expose the deep state: forces he said are driving the effort by Democrats to proceed with impeachment against the president. Continue reading

Hold Fast to the Word of Life

19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the gates of the prison, and taking them out he said, 20 “Go, stand and speak to the people in the temple the whole message of this Life.” Acts 5:19-20 (NASB) 

We are in a period of the Church in which we must keep our eyes fixed on Christ alone for if we look to men we are in danger of being deceived. To counter this, we must become focused where God wants us to be focused, doing as He desires us to be doing. Continue reading

Another Jesus

3 But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ. 4 For if one comes and preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted, you bear this beautifully. 2 Corinthians 11:3-4 (NASB) 

Every professing Christian, whether he or she is trained in theologian or not, has constructed some kind of Christology in their mind, in their heart. Sadly, with the dearth of clear and correct doctrine being taught in our churches, most seem to believe that whatever their own concept of Christ is it is okay…. Continue reading

New Bill Would Require Reports on Babies Born Alive After Abortions and Left to Die

Data that the CDC collects also confirms babies are born alive after attempted abortions.  Between the years 2003 and 2014 there were somewhere between 376 and 588 infant deaths under the medical code P96.4 which keeps track of babies born alive after a “termination of pregnancy.”

(Steven Ertelt – Life News)  New Congressional legislation would require states to disclose the number of babies born after failed abortions, and on those who did not receive appropriate medical care and treatment. Continue reading

Who Is Lord: Christ or Caesar?

“The truth is that question is always there. It is always before us, before the church in every age of the past. The question is before us in our time today, and it will be in front of the church in the ages to come. Who is Lord?”

(Stephen Nichols – Ligonier Ministries)  Someday, we will be like Him. That’s our hope. But it’s not a hope that we put on the shelf, and it’s not a hope that sends us into a cave. It’s a hope that sends us into the world with confidence. We can be confident in God, confident in His Word, confident in Christ, confident in the gospel, and confident in hope. In the AD 90s, Domitian ruled as emperor over Rome…. Continue reading

Climate Change Hysteria—Is It Justified?

“Such hysteria has really resulted from generations of young people not being taught how to think and being brainwashed in secular philosophy!”

(Ken Ham – Answers In Genesis)  The topic of climate change is always in the headlines. But it’s been dominating the news lately because of the Climate Change Summit and the climate change protests from young people around the world. These young people are rallying to demand that governments take their future seriously and to enact radical policies to limit carbon emissions. Some (including teenagers) are even signing a pledge that they won’t have children until the government does something about climate change! Is this climate change hysteria justified? Continue reading

What Is That to You?

20 Peter, turning around, *saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His bosom at the supper and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” 21 So Peter seeing him *said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?” 22 Jesus *said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!” John 21:20-22 (NASB)

Part of my makeup that God molded into my character is the ability to observe, take note, and analyze as part of Him directing what I study and pray about in order to obediently minister in my writing and teaching. What do I observe?… Continue reading

Atheist Group Files Complaint Against Judge In Amber Guyger Case For Talking To Her About Redemption

“[Freedom From Religion Foundation] is filing a judicial complaint about this unconstitutional proselytizing. We need more compassion in our criminal justice system, but here, compassion crossed the line into coercion. Judges cannot impose their personal religion on others.”

(Amanda Prestigiacomo – Daily Wire)  An activist atheist group has filed a complaint against the judge in the widely covered case of off-duty Dallas cop Amber Guyger, who was sentenced to ten years behind bars on Wednesday for the killing of Botham Jean. Guyger shot and killed Jean after she says she mistakenly entered the wrong apartment, believing the 26-year-old accountant was an intruder in her own home. Continue reading

The Sting

“The truth is Nancy Pelosi is hitching a ride on the impeachment train – she’s not the driver.  She knows the press will provide cover for the Democrats and believes the impeachment process, even if it doesn’t result in removal, will damage Donald Trump in his re-election bid.”

(Bill O’Reilly)  If you read my new book “The United States of Trump,” you will learn exactly why the President made the request for information on Joe Biden to the President of Ukraine.  Simply put, Mr. Trump believes that Mr. Biden as well as President Obama and Hillary Clinton got away with unethical, perhaps illegal, political activities in the “Russia Collusion” thing. Continue reading

Beth Moore Attacks Biblical Gender Roles at SBC Conference, Crowd Erupts in Applause

“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

The Falling Away

1 Now we request you, brethren, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, 2 that you not be quickly shaken from your composure or be disturbed either by a spirit or a message or a letter as if from us, to the effect that the day of the Lord has come. 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 (NASB) (Read verses 3-4 on the site.)

I confess that for many years that 2 Thessalonians 2:3 seemed to me “not to fit” with the Eschatology that I was being fed on a regular basis. I even heard one very well known “Prophecy Expert” say that the “falling away” as some translations say or “apostasy” as the NASB says in v3 was describing the secret Rapture of the Church….

‘Give Your Life to Christ’: Botham Jean’s Brother Forgives, Embraces Ex-Dallas Cop Who Killed His Brother

“Judge Kem told him he could [give her a hug] and Brandt and Gyger stood up, then met in front of the bench and hugged each other while Guyger cried.”

(Steve Warren – Faithwire)  Brandt Jean, the brother of a black man who was shot dead by Amber Guyger, a white Dallas Police officer who said she mistook the victim’s apartment for her own, forgave his brother’s killer and hugged her in front of the courtroom Wednesday.

As some people outside of the courtroom reacted angrily to the 10-year sentence given to Amber Guyger, 31, for killing Botham Jean in his own apartment, believing the sentence too lenient, Jean’s brother was allowed by Judge Tammy Kem to address her directly from the witness stand.  Continue reading
