First Wesley, now Knox

**UPDATE**: Now the Politically Correct, UnScriptural Apostates have announced they are standing with the PLO in their opposition to the very existence of Israel (via Christian Worldview Network): As I write truthful but unpleasant comments about the Presbyterian Church, I know many Presbyterian readers of this do not agree with their church leadership. But at […]

Street preachers boldly go into the wanna-be anti-Christ’s church and engage the deceived.

For those who watched the videos in this post on the false prophet who claims to be Christ and wondered to yourself how could anyone believe that stuff, here’s your chance to see how this anti-Christ’s followers justify their belief. I haven’t seen this much Scripture twisting since the last time I talked to Mormons […]

Quotes (315)

Apostasy poses real and present dangers today as always. Actually, the threat may be more imminent and more dangerous than ever, because most Christians nowadays simply don’t care about the prevalence of false doctrine, nor do they take seriously their duty to fight against apostasy. Instead, they want a friendly atmosphere of open acceptance for […]

Exposing Kenneth Copeland’s doctrines of demons.

This is a fantastic video comparing the truth of Scripture with that of Kenneth Copeland’s false teachings spawned from the abyss of Satan. If you want to view the complete video (about 7 minutes longer than the one below) you can find it here.

Quotes (314)

You and I may not have met each other, but of one thing we can be certain even before our introduction—both of us are sinners. Every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth, no matter how old or how young, is a sinner. Even small children, when allowed to go to their […]

Sola Fide.

I first heard this song On Faith Alone on the radio and quickly came to love it. I would like to take this opportunity to share it with all the readers of DefCon. Not only is the music beautiful, but the lyrics (which I’ve included below the video) are biblically solid–not the sappy, happy, clappy, […]

One single soul saved shall outlive and outweigh all the kingdoms of the world. – J. C. Ryle 1816 – 1900

The idolatry of Rome–the “Scala Sancta”

There is a staircase in Rome–the seat of religious harlotry–that, supposedly, people can ascend on their knees and gain some pitiful “indulgence” from the man who sits in a temple as God. Spurgeon wrote about it as he witnessed this atrocity: WHILE traveling in Italy it was our good fortune to fall in with our […]

Captured on video: Todd Bentley knees a man in the stomach with stage 4 colon cancer to facilitate a “healing.”

Todd Bentley bragged (in the video on this previous post) about kicking a lady in the face with his biker boot to heal her. In that same video he also boasted about tackling, leg-dropping, punching, and choking people to generate “healings.” Well, now he’s battered someone for real and it’s been caught on video. And […]

Quotes (312)

The god which the vast majority of professing Christians love is looked upon very much like an indulgent old man, who himself has no relish for folly, but leniently winks at the indiscretions of youth. But the Word says, “Thou hatest all workers of iniquity (Psalm 5:5). And again, “God is angry with the wicked […]

Sermon: “Are signs and wonders for today?” by John Piper.

I interrupt your previously scheduled Saturday sermon series, Studies in Ephesians, to bring you the following thought-provoking and brutally honest sermon by John Piper. There’s been a lot of scuttlebutt lately regarding all the hoopla going on with Todd Bentley’s circus show in Lakeland, Florida. This has brought up some serious questions about whether or […]

Quotes (311)

People who embrace apostasy are destroyed by it. Churches wither and die because of it. Consider the fact that by the end of the first century, when the apostle John wrote Revelation 2-3, five out of the seven churches in Asia Minor were either beginning to defect from the faith or were already apostate bodies. […]

50 Answers to 50 Mormon Answers to 50 Anti-Mormon Questions (Answer 10)

Tower To Truth Question: 10. If the words “familiar spirit” in Is. 29:4 refer to the Book of Mormon, why does “familiar spirit” always refer to occult practices such as channeling and necromancy everywhere else in the Old Testament? —————————- FAIR Answer: The term “familiar spirit,” quoted in the often-poetic Isaiah (and used by Nephi […]

Great Apes Now Enjoy “Human Rights”

No, this is not a joke, though I wish it was. The Spanish parliament has voiced its support for the rights of great apes to life and freedom. In a statement, Pedro Pozas, Spanish director of the Great Apes Project, said, “This is a historic day in the struggle for animal rights and in defense […]

Quotes (310)

Sin is not a trifle; it is not “cute”; sin is not funny. Sin is exceedingly wicked and perverse; it is “utterly sinful.” All sin is twisted and ugly and vile. We should be shocked at how wicked men are and how callous we have become to that wickedness. – Charles Leiter

Dan Kimball’s “They Like Jesus but not the Church.”

Emergent pastor Dan Kimball makes some good points in this 7 minute video, as do other Emergent leaders from time to time (like leaving the “bubble” and reaching out to those on the outside). But as usual it doesn’t take long for Emergents to quickly make a hard left-turn and nosedive into a downward spiral […]

Quotes (309)

Regeneration is the supernatural work of God whereby the sinner’s dead, depraved heart of stone is replaced with a new heart that is both willing and able to respond to God in love and obedience. – Paul Washer

Planned Parenthood to spread its poisoned roots into shopping malls

From Albert Mohler’s blog comes this frightening article about how the wormwood tree known as Planned Parenthood (motto: “We’ve never met a baby we didn’t want to kill, or a profit we didn’t want to make!“) is spreading out its roots into shopping malls: “It is indeed a new look…a new branding, if you will.” […]

The evolution of sin.

The first chapter of Romans illustrates a very revealing downward spiral of sin that readers of Romans may oftentimes unwittingly gloss over. In this post I’ve briefly outlined the effects of sin as described at the end of Romans 1 and beginning of Romans 2. It should serve as a reminder to us all that […]

Quotes (308)

Here is terror for the wicked. Those who defy Him, break His laws, have no concern for His glory, but live their lives as though He did not exist, must not suppose that, when at last they shall cry to Him for mercy, He will alter His will, revoke His word, and rescind His awful […]

Quotes (307)

A little child is easily quieted and amused with gaudy toys, and dolls, and rattles, so long as it is not hungry; but once let it feel the cravings of nature within, and we know that nothing will satisfy it but food. Just so it is with man in the matter of his soul. Music, […]

Sermon of the week: “How to Witness to the Lost, the Biblical Way” by Paul Washer.

This new message from Paul Washer is–in my opinion–one of his top five sermons (if not in the top three). What he preached to the church youth in his famous “Shocking Sermon” (audio here, video here) regarding false conversion, he now delivers to the preachers, teachers, and pastors who are creating all those false converts. […]

That’s why it’s called grace.

Can the doctrine of justification be any simpler and yet still be willfully misunderstood by most professing Christians?

Quotes (306)

An apostate is therefore a defector from the truth—someone who has known the truth, given some show of affirmation to it, perhaps even proclaimed it for a while—but then rejected it in the end. The typical apostate may still purport to believe the truth and proclaim the truth; but in reality he opposes the truth […]

This nation will get the president that it deserves.

Like ancient Israel, we in the United States will soon get the leader that we deserve; a leader that will not respect nor honor the God of our fathers. Why? * Sexual perversions of all types are not only tolerated and flaunted but they’re celebrated and protected by law. * Government-run public schools ban anything […]

Quotes (305)

God’s wrath is not a temporary loss of self-control or a selfish fit of emotion. It is His holy, white-hot hatred of sin, the reaction and revulsion of His holy nature against all that is evil. God’s wrath is tied in directly with His justice. It has to do with His righteous determination to punish […]

Crosstalk: The State of the Church in Light of Cultural Collapse.

Ingrid Schlueter (of Slice of Laodicea and Hope in Laodicea) hosts this edition of Crosstalk entitled: The State of the Church in Light of Cultural Collapse. While the culture comes crashing down around us and California legalizes gay marriage, Ingrid takes this broadcast time to discusses the utter failure of the Church in stemming the […]

Quotes (304)

In modern day evangelism, this precious doctrine [of regeneration] has been reduced to nothing more than a human decision to raise one’s hand, walk an aisle, or pray a “sinner’s prayer.” As a result, the majority of Americans believe that they’ve been “born again” (i.e., regenerated) even though their thoughts, words, and deeds are a […]

The White Horse Inn: Assuming the Gospel.

The hosts are firing on all cylinders again, this time on the topic of whether or not too many pastors and churches assume their sheep know and understand the gospel (and thus, whether their sheep are really sheep). I especially recommend this episode, Assuming the Gospel, to those in preaching/teaching positions. Episode description: What is […]
