Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

I have no intention of making a mountain out of a mole hill, but I found an interesting post on the blog True Discernment and thought some of you may want to weigh in on it. (Also see Independent Conservative’s similar post here). It features Christmas greetings from two popular women “pastors.” As supposed Christian […]

Are you a Monergist or Synergist?

Just some food for thought for today: Are you a Monergist or a Synergist? Some noteworthy monergists include: John MacArthur, RC Sproul, John Piper, D. James Kennedy, Charles Spurgeon, John Calvin, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, and Martin Luther. Noteworthy synergists include: Billy Graham, Joel Osteen, Tim Lahaye, Charles Stanley, Jerry Falwell, John Wesley, Charles Finney, […]

Quotes (84)

   I want deliberately to encourage this mighty longing after God. The lack of it has brought us to our present low estate. The stiff and wooden quality about our religious lives is a result of our lack of holy desire. Complacency is a deadly foe of all spiritual growth. Acute desire must be present […]

Another “preacher” on Larry King . . . another missed opportunity.

The female version of Joel Osteen has been discovered. Regarding Paula White’s book You’re All That, Larry King asks “This is a self-help book?” She responds, “Well, I believe the Bible helps yourself. So I think, you know, it’s based around the biblical principles and truths that transform me.” Thanks to Independent Conservative for this […]

Paula White putting on a show.

I could only stomach a little bit of this before I could stand no more. Why is she acting like this? All show and no substance. And did she really say that the Apostle Paul lacked the ability to articulate and communicate? HT: Independent Conservative

Quotes (83)

One of the most impressive blessings in America is religious liberty. Not only do Christians have access to radio and television, unheard of in most nations of Asia, but they are also free to hold meetings, evangelize, and print literature. How different this is from many Asian nations in which government persecution of Christians is […]

Islam vs teddy bear teacher UPDATE.

Muslims simply aren’t happy with whipping a woman for allowing her students to name a teddy bear Muhammed. Now they want her executed! Read the latest news article here. So where does the “peace” part come in of this “religion of peace” I keep hearing about? Original post here. 

Sermon of the week: “The Fruits of Repentance” by Tim Conway.

This week’s sermon is by Pastor Tim Conway and is entitled (Shut your mouth if you don’t have) The Fruits of Repentance. Warning to the nominal professing Christian: this sermon will step on your toes. Click on the link to listen streaming, or right click on the link and click “Save As” (Internet Explorer) or […]

Does your “Bishop” and “Prophetess” live in a 2.5 million dollar home?

And these two can claim they still lived modestly compared to this pastor. Thanks to Independent Conservative for this video.

Joseph Smith: The Enchanter

I just received a copy of the brand-new, full-color, 32 page comic The Enchanter produced by Chick Publications. The comic is on the life of Joseph Smith and I was very anxious to read it. After reading it I was very disappointed on many levels. Although the design, layout, and artwork are good, it failed […]

K.P. Yohannan sermon.

Part One Part Two It’s not too late to send a Christmas gift to support a native missionary to help further the gospel. Just click here.  

An examination of the Prosperity “gospel.”

This video was made by fellow blogger and brother in Christ, Fourpointer. He did a great job on exposing some of the many lies of the Word of Faith cult. (That’s right, I said “cult”).

Quotes (82)

   Now, the word legalism is oftentimes brought up today. And it’s just used totally out of context. Anybody who has any kind of conviction about anything, seems to be called a legalist. Now a legalist is someone who believes that they are going to have a right standing before through their own obedience, their […]

  There is much in the attitude of professing Christians in this day which fills me with concern, and makes me full of fear for the future. -J.C. Ryle 1816 – 1900

Islam: The religion of “peace” is at it again.

In this news article with accompanying video, a school teacher is in a Sudanese jail facing 40 lashes for allowing children in her class to name a teddy bear Mohammed. As I shake my head at the barbaric behavior in which Islam constantly finds itself, I have to wonder if we harnessed just 10% of […]

  What so breaks my heart is when men are more concerned for coddling carnal unregenerate men than concerned for the glory of God and the God who died for them. – Paul Washer

Another test from Reformation Nation.

Here’s your test for the day: If I showed you a picture (see below) of two men; one dressed as Batman and the other as Superman, with the caption: “This Halloween, Batman and Superman came to the costume party as homosexuals.” Where would you think this came from? A. A gay bar. B. A gay […]

How many light bulbs?

I found this gem on Symphony of Scripture. Q: How many charismatics does it take to change a light bulb? A: One, since his hands are in the air anyway. A: Three, one to cast it out and two to catch it when it falls! A: Twenty one, one to change it, and twenty to […]

Quotes (79)

   How tragic that we in this dark day have had our seeking done for us by our teachers. Everything is made to center upon the initial act of “accepting” Christ (a term, incidentally, which is not found in the Bible) and we are not expected thereafter to crave any further revelation of God to […]

Wrong again: Brigham Young spoke too soon.

The government says you shall only have one wife; the Lord says take unto yourselves wives; and Saints obey the Lord, and we shall see who will come off victorious. (Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, Volume 12, Page 165)

Quotes (78)

Besides books, 8,000 Christian magazines and newspapers flourish. More than 1,600 Christian radio stations broadcast the Gospel full-time, while many countries don’t even have their first Christian radio station. A tiny 0.1 percent of all Christian radio and television programming is directed toward the unevangelized world. The saddest observation I can make about most of […]

Jehovah’s Witnesses exposed (the complete 58 minute video).

Quotes (77)

  What are most youth groups like? You get a real personable young leader who’s usually not married and a lot of mousse in his hair. And then he gets a lot of young people around him, and what do they become? According to Proverbs they become companions of fools. When you put young people […]

A cup of Starbucks coffee, an epiphany, and a new leaf.

Recently, while enjoying a tall, hazelnut, decaf, non-fat, with-whip latte at Starbucks, I read something that caused an epiphany. On the cup was one of their The Way I See It (#290) quotes. This particular quote was from former House Speaker Newt Gingrich: “On the battlefield of ideas, winning requires moving toward the sound of […]

Movie review: The Most

I just got the opportunity to watch the Academy Award Nominee short film entitled The Most. (Thanks Tom for blessing me with it). It was a great movie. If you haven’t seen it I recommend you do. Here’s a review from Christianity Today: People who have seen this film count it among the best and […]

Like the Catholic church, Jehovah’s Witnesses protect and cover up child molestors within their organization.

Quotes (76)

The knowledge of God is the great hope of sinners. Oh, if you knew Him better, you would fly to Him! If you understood how gracious He is, you would seek Him. If you could have any idea of His holiness, you would loathe your self-righteousness. If you knew anything of His power, you would […]

Thanks to Mormonism, discerning good from evil is as easy as a handshake or a hair color.

“When a messenger comes, saying he has a message from God, offer him your hand, and request him to shake hands with you. If he be an angel he will do so, and you will feel his hand. If he be a spirit of a just man made perfect, he will come in his glory; […]
