A chilling warning about where the statue-toppling leads…

“Among many Venezuelans, there were stories about flight. There was terror about crime and lawlessness and criminals being allowed to rampage to keep the population docile. There were conversations about whether it would be wise to collaborate with the CIA. There were warnings about not talking too loudly, even in English, in restaurants.” 
(Monica Showalter – American Thinker) Think it can’t happen here? 

It can happen here. Continue reading

Trump orders law enforcement to arrest memorial vandals under federal act with up to 10-year sentence

(Washington Examiner)  President Trump said he has authorized federal law enforcement to arrest those caught vandalizing memorials and charge them under the Veterans’ Memorial Preservation and Recognition Act.

“I have authorized the Federal Government to arrest anyone who vandalizes or destroys any monument, statue or other such Federal property in the U.S. with up to 10 years in prison, per the Veteran’s Memorial Preservation Act, or such other laws that may be pertinent,” the president tweeted Tuesday morning.

Living Holy in the World

1 Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, 2 so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. 1 Peter 4:1-2 (NASB) 

Even though genuine Christians are new creations and have been purchased out of the world through the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross, as they attempt to live godly lives in the temporal, they will come under tremendous pressure to compromise by reverting back to the fleshly way of dealing with life….

BLM Leader: Statues and Stained Glass of Jesus Are ‘White Supremacy,’ Must Be Torn Down

Yet King is utterly, inexcusably wrong about Jesus being a symbol of “white supremacy.” Jesus firmly condemned racism, crossing racial barriers to make the Good Samaritan the hero of one of His parables and speaking with the Samaritan woman at the well. His disciples would teach that “there is no Jew or Greek, no slave or free, no male or female, but we are all one in Christ Jesus.”

(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media)  On Monday, Black Lives Matter leader and former Bernie Sanders surrogate Shaun King called for the demolition or removal of all statues, murals, and stained glass windows of “white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends,” i.e. the Twelve Apostles….

Arrogance

1 But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, 4 treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; Avoid such men as these. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (NASB) 

No Christian would argue that this list characterizes man in these last days, but sadly, these very things are tolerated in professing believers in our time. This passage and other obvious Bible verses that state these things are simply ignored by professing Christians and Christian leaders…. Continue reading

Video surfaces of Black Lives Matter founder saying, ‘We are trained Marxists’

(Disrn)  A 2015 video clip has surfaced of an interview with Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors in which she assures her interviewer that the group has an underlying ideology, saying, “We’re trained Marxists.”

Watch the video on the site

Responding to the interviewer’s concern that the BLM movement might not have enough of a “clear ideological structure,” Cullors responded by saying that she and another co-founder “in particular” are dedicated to the ideology of Communist leader Karl Marx: Continue reading

The Miserable Pseudo-Science Behind Face Masks, Social Distancing And Contact Tracing

“The American public is being spoon-fed a steady diet of pseudo-science in order to justify the wearing of face masks, social distancing and contact tracing. Yet, the actual science points in the polar opposite direction. … Furthermore, those who try to present the real science are shamed, ridiculed and bullied for having such narrow-minded views.”  

(Patrick Wood – Technocracy)  Once upon a time, there was something called science. It included the discovery of truth about nature, the elements, the universe, etc…. Continue reading

Racism in the PCA

“This article will be hard to swallow. The need of the hour is to recognize the nature of the enemy the Church faces. And the enemy which stands at the gate of the Church in America is not what many think. Up to this point, many think that the enemy we are facing is some form of white supremacy, or racial animus, or “oppression” of minorities. Brothers and sisters, I tell you, as an ordained servant of King Jesus, the enemy is not that. Rather it is the racist philosophy of Critical Theory which has burned down most, if not all, of the institutions of the West.”

(Bennnie Castle)  Recently, By Faith, the online magazine of the Presbyterian Church in America published a statement by the Coordinators and Presidents of General Assembly committees and agencies dealing with recent “Heinous Killings.” This statement is troubling for the Reformed world for several reasons, not least of which is the unholy way in which this statement handles Scripture….

He Must Increase But I Must Decrease

30 It is necessary for Him to increase, but for me to decrease. John 3:30 (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

We often think that false doctrine concerning the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ will begin with denials of His deity or the fall of man et cetera. Consider this my brethren. All it takes to get the Gospel wrong is to make the focus of it man rather than the glory of the Father through the glorification of the Son as He lived that sinless life and through that perfect obedience became the propitiation for those He came to save….

Counterfeit Obedience and Discernment

13 You call Me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. 14 If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15 For I gave you an example that you also should do as I did to you. 16 Truly, truly, I say to you, a slave is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. 17 If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them. John 13:13-17 (NASB) 

The heart of Man is deceitful beyond our understanding. I find it incredible that God would desire to save any of us. Even after regeneration there is an element in each of our hearts that falls for the wicked appeal of our enemy to believe those things that have an affinity to our pride and flesh….

Finally, an effective and uncontroversial COVID-19 treatment

(World Magazine)  Success With A Steroid – In March, a study in Wuhan, China, suggested that coronavirus patients might benefit from a potent steroid called methylprednisolone. But the study’s preliminary nature and its small number of participants limited its impact: At the time, the Eastern Virginia Medical School guidelines, which have helped guide COVID-19 treatment elsewhere, warned that “this topic is controversial” before summarizing the Wuhan findings and suggesting steroids may help.

Law enforcement families face harassment, vandalism, and threats at home

Facebook photo

“I talked to a wife today from Seattle, whose husbands at Seattle PD, and she, she knows that they need to get out of there. She’s afraid for her husband’s life and her kids in the neighborhood. She said that they’re getting picked on they’re getting called names,” Chabot said. “It’s not the same like it was even just two weeks ago, three weeks ago, just because they’re a law enforcement family now. Their kids are being targeted by people in the neighborhood.”

(Kerry Pickett – Washington Examiner)  Law enforcement officers say they and their families face harassment and bullying by strangers and neighbors as a result of a nationwide crackdown on law enforcement following protests around the death of George Floyd. Continue reading

The BLM Movement: An Existential Threat to America

“Today young whites fall to their knees to repudiate their “white privilege” and beg for forgiveness that will never be forthcoming. And why not? Because, our new racial overlords lecture us, racism is not simply inherent in white America’s shameful past, it still permeates our white skin, and we can do nothing about that; it is who we are. White folks can even debase themselves by washing the feet of black men…yet the original stain of white racism can never be symbolically washed away.”

(Craig Luther – Frontpage Mag)  BLACK LIVES MATTER has taken America by storm. Simply put, it is a radical Leftist outfit that seeks to replace capitalism with socialism, abolish the police (and let criminals out of jail), and looks to socialist Venezuela as a model…. Continue reading

Guilt and Guilt Feelings

Then one of the seraphim flew to me, having in his hand a burning coal that he had taken with tongs from the altar. And he touched my mouth and said: ‘Behold, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away, and your sin atoned for’” (vv. 6–7)  – Isaiah 6:1-7

Paul’s account of the internal struggle between the flesh and spirit in Romans 7:14–25 has helped us understand that while there has been a true change wrought in us by the Holy Spirit, we will nevertheless be tempted and succumb to sin throughout our lives…. Continue reading

Beth Moore Flaunts Feminist, Pro-Abortion, Pro-Gay Elizabeth Warren Slogan on Tee Shirt

The Tee shirt promoted by Beth Moore on Twitter was given to her by her friend Christine Caine of heretical Hillsong Church in Australia. Caine considers Joyce Meyer her chief mentor and “spiritual mother.”  Both are Word of Faith/Prosperity Gospel wolves.  So with this background in mind, here’s Reformation Charlotte’s report. Watch Moore’s video. Sadly, she appears to be mentally deranged — and that’s putting it mildly.

The slogan, “Nevertheless, She Persisted,” has become synonymous with far-left ideology after it was popularized by the progressive senator, Elizabeth Warren…. Continue reading

The Rotten Fruit of Anti-American ‘Education’

“The United States is in the process of being fundamentally and radically transformed as socialism has made much progress. Our great grandparents once said “It could never happen in America.” But it did – and we’re now living with the consequences of surrendering the education of our children.”

(David Fiorazo) What did we expect? After decades of teaching kids in America to hate their country, take a good look around because we’re now seeing some rotten fruit of the education system. This generation of young adults generally has more disdain for America, but knows far less about actual U.S. history. Continue reading

How Cultural Revolutions Die — or Not

“Liberal sympathetic bystanders are wondering whether downtown arson and looting will go private and reach their suburban homes. Do they really want their marquee universities or the Washington or Jefferson monuments defaced or renamed? What happens when calling 911 gets a constant busy signal?”

(Victor Davis Hanson – PJ Media)  Unlike coups or political revolutions, cultural revolutions don’t just change governments or leaders. Instead, they try to redefine entire societies. Their leaders call them “holistic” and “systematic.” Continue reading

Rooted and Grounded

14 For this cause I bend my knees to the Father 15 from whom every family in Heaven and on Earth is named, 16 that He may grant you according to the wealth of His glory to become mightily empowered in your inner being through His Spirit 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith that you, having been rooted and grounded in love, 18 that you might have strength to grasp together with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth of His love, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled to all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:14-19 (translated from the NA28 Greek text)

I would not pass the test for post modernism in any context. I am not politically correct nor do I care whether I am or am not. If that becomes a requirement for employment or something else that we view as temporally vital in this age, I will still refuse…. Continue reading

Culture rape: Our forefathers condemned as immoral — by the worst lowlifes among us

“There are two yardsticks available for making moral judgments: the eternal and the ephemeral. The problem with moderns today — especially the subspecies called “leftists” — is that being moral relativists blind to Truth’s existence, they make everything relative to themselves.”

(Selwyn Duke – Renew America)  As statues again come down as our culture is further torn up, something goes unsaid and often unnoticed:

Notable Western historical figures are being condemned as immoral — by the most immoral, decadent, degenerate people among us. Continue reading
