What do Mormons really believe about Christians?

Time and time again, when trying to share the truth with Mormons, they employ numerous diversion tactics. One of the most common is playing the victim. An example of this would be something like this: I quote (in context) one of their prophets on a topic; let’s say the racist teachings of their prophet Brigham […]

What impresses visitors from the Two-Thirds World are the simple things Americans take for granted: fresh water available 24 hours a day, unlimited electrical power, telephones that work and a most remarkable network of paved roads. . . . At the time, we still had no television in India, but my American hosts seemed to […]

Life is . . .

What is your preferred Bible translation and why?

With so many versions to choose from, I am curious, which is your favorite translation and why?

Halloween, Harvest Party, or Reformation Day?

I know that there’s many perspectives on whether or not Christians should celebrate Halloween. Many churches have chosen to celebrate it by putting their “Christian” spin on it; calling it a Harvest Party. Even more churches completely ignore the fact that this Wednesday will mark the 490th anniversary since Luther nailed his 95 Theses to […]

   Consider how unreasonable this fear of man is. How short lived is man’s hosility, and how little harm he can do! “Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass, that you forget the Lord your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of […]

Little children, let us not love with word or tongue, but in deed and truth. – The Apostle John 1 John 3:18

Your “prophet” Joseph Smith Jr. quote of the day.

   “God made Aaron to be the mouth piece for the children of Israel, and He will make me to be god to you in His stead, and the Elders to be mouth for me; and if you don’t like it, you must lump it.” History of the Church Volume 6 Page 408

“You ain’t got to pimp nobody.”

This guy won’t be invited on TBN.

Great compilation on false teachers.

Does your pastor live in a 3.6 million dollar home?

Thanks to Independent Conservative for keeping us aware of what men like this are gaining from the “gospel.” I was actually more surprised by the results of the news poll at the end of the video than I was that yet another preacher is using the Gospel to live like a king. With all the […]

Sola Scriptura (19)

I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have need of nothing,” and you do […]

The new atheism.

I found this very interesting video over at Independent Conservative. This is all going on while many in the Church sleep.

Does the “W” really stand for “Watch?”

Here’s the website selling the official I Worship Watch Joel Osteen lapel pin. It’s just another example of our bloated excess as the Western Church lives in the comfortable lap of luxury. I wonder how many Christians who are going without food in their stomachs or Scriptures in their hands in the poorest parts of […]

Quotes (48)

I began with alarm to understand how misplaced are the spiritual values of most Western believers. Sad to say, it appeared to me that for the most part they had absorbed the same humanistic and materialistic values that dominated the secular culture. Almost immediately I sensed an awesome judgment was hanging over the United States–and […]

Quotes (47)

    The thought, “What will my friends say or think of me?” nips many good inclination in the bud. The fear of being looked at, laughed at, ridiculed, prevents many a good habit from being taken up. There are Bibles that would be read this very day, if the owners dared. They know they […]

The Via Dolorosa.

I previously posted this song done in another video. If you want to view that one, click here.

Sola Scriptura (18)

    [The rich man] will say to [his] soul, “Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry.” But God said to him, “You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?” […]

This man is about to die. Are you this man?

Sola Scriptura (17)

Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me. – The Lord Jesus Christ Matthew 25:40

What Would You Do?

Narcissim Gone Wild: What’s the deal with these pastors and their desire to look, sound, and act like those on MTV?

Anyone who’s been alive for the last decade knows what a cesspool of sex, drugs, violence and homosexuality the cable channel MTV (Music Television) has become. Why anyone who claims the name of Christ would want to emulate this channel (especially pastors) is beyond me. I know, I know, the defenders will say “they’re trying […]

Quotes (46)

For we know that the unrenewed will is set against the Gospel; it is enmity to God and His truth. It is the Gospel that the unbeliever hates; and the more clearly it is set before him, the more he hates it. – Horatius Bonar 1808 – 1889

Book review: John Bunyan’s “Pilgrim’s Progress.”

This classic should be on every Christian’s bookshelf. Do I need to even recommend this book? Well I wish someone had for me. I didn’t even know this book existed till last year. Fifteen years in the Charismatic-style church will do that to you. If you are interested in purchasing this book, check it out […]

By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. – The Lord Jesus Christ John 13:35

Book review: The Triumphant Church featuring Richard Wurmbrand, John Piper and Milton Martin.

This book, compiled and produced by the Voice of the Martyrs, is a three-part study from the writings of Richard Wurmbrand, John Piper and Milton Martin. An easy read, this book explores God’s perspective of the persecution of His Church. It not only offers first hand accounts of persecution and torture for the sake of […]
