We must never forget that the Bible is what God says and religion is what man says God says. – Mike Gendron
You’ve seen the new breed of blasphemous preachers and the disciple of the new breed of blasphemous preachers, now I want to introduce you to the human wreckage that’s left in the wake of these wolves. My heart goes out to the children of the man (Stacy Denboer) in the following videos. I do not […]
The so-called humanist gospel—which isn’t really the “good news” at all—is called by many names. Some argue for it in familiar biblical and theological terms; some call it the “social gospel” or the “holistic gospel,” but the label is not important. You can tell the humanist gospel because it refuses to admit that the basic […]
Yes, now you, too, can be as (in)famous as Todd Bentley! All you have to do is order The Do-It-Yourself Florida Revival Kit* today! The Do-It-Yourself Florida Revival Kit * Taken from Hour 1 of The Way of the Master Radio, first broadcast August 21, 2008.
Meet Captain Whacked the Pirate Preacher. He is an obvious by-product of the wolves featured in the videos in this previous post. Sadly, for many, this may be the only exposure they have to “Christianity,” but I want to make it abundantly clear here and now, that this has as much to do with real, […]
For this is a rebellious people, false sons, sons who refuse to listen to the instruction of the LORD; who say to the seers, “You must not see visions”; and to the prophets, “You must not prophesy to us what is right, speak to us pleasant words, prophesy illusions. Get out of the way, turn […]
At first I thought this was a joke by some worldly guys who were mocking Christianity . . . then I realized it was no joke. The two itinerant ministers in these videos, Benjamin Dunn and John Crowder (a “prophetic healing revivalist”), show you by their behavior just how far Western Christianity has fallen. Their […]
The Bible Reference Notes for today will hopefully clear up a common misconception. In relation to the human race, we often hear people say, “We’re all God’s children.” This, however, is not supported by Scripture. In fact, Scripture clearly lays out just who are and who are not the children of God. Children of God […]
Required education for those less discerning, in my opinion.
For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according […]
A Roman Catholic priest has decided to actualize the suggestion of some nuns whom he regularly prays and works with. Rev. Antonio Rungi, an Italian priest and theologian, has announced that he’ll be organizing an online beauty contest for nuns to “… give them more visibility within the Catholic Church and to fight the stereotype […]
This video is the kind of thing that passes for “Christian” these days. More from Patricia King’s Flying Circus (Hat tip: A Little Leaven):
“Entertainment is not revival. Although that is an obvious statement, it is sadly not always understood. Too often it is assumed that an ‘atmosphere’ of revival can be achieved by using music, lighting and techno-media presentation. Highly organized events with attractive multi-coloured brochures can generate excitement and draw huge crowds, but it is misleading to […]
Pay close attention to what happens when the music starts about 5:09 and then LISTEN to what he says about “no longer having to study the Word” at about 5:52 into the video! What Club Mysterio, Ekstasis Worship, and Patricia King are all offering worship which is not acceptable to God. PlumblineApologetics states the following […]
Shallow lives, hollow religious philosophies, the preponderance of the element of fun in gospel meetings, the glorification of men, trust in religious externalities, quasi-religious fellowships, salesmanship methods, the mistaking of dynamic personality for the power of the Spirit: these and such as these are the symptoms of an evil disease, a deep and serious malady […]
Tower To Truth Question: 19. Why do you baptize for the dead when both Mosiah 3:25 and the Bible state that there is no chance of salvation after death? —————————– FAIR Answer: The passage in Mosiah 3:25, and any passages in the Bible which also imply there is no chance of salvation after death, are […]
“Death (of a Church) occurs when unbelievers are allowed to take over ministries in the church. It happens when a church becomes more concerned with form and liturgy than it is with life on a spiritual level. Death occurs when a church becomes more concerned about welfare and social ills than it is about salvation. […]
UPDATE: The Circus may not be coming to town after all. Much thanks to Douglas (Black Reforming Kid) and Scott771, who have pointed out that Todd Bentley’s own camp is admitting that he has been having an “unhealthy relationship on an emotional level with a female member of his staff.” This didn’t come from any […]
Unfortunately it’s not that simple, so until they start wearing these shirts we must still rely on the Scriptures and discernment to identify the wolves among the sheep.
Ever notice how so many of these “prophets” who claim to have “visions” go on to describe things about God that are so foreign to the God of the Bible that these alleged god-visions bear no resemblance to the nature of the holy One revealed in Scripture? Oh, and as a bonus, Rick Pino is […]
One of the most fearful things about sin is its power to harden the one who practices it. The deeper a man goes in sin, the less sin bothers him. . . . Every sinner finds himself now committing sins that he once despised, and the sins that he now despises, he will someday find […]
Tower To Truth Question #17: 17. If the Book of Mormon contains the “fulness of the everlasting gospel,” why does the LDS Church need additional works? ——————————- FAIR Answer #17: The Book of Mormon’s definition of “fulness of the gospel” is not “all truths taught in the Church.” The fulness of the gospel is simply […]
Every true revival is always, and without exception, based on the Word of God; the Bible is the only revealed Truth in the world and, in fact, ever has been; there is not a spiritual problem that is not addressed in the Word; there is not a difficulty for which it does not have a […]
These folks sicken me to the core. It’s no wonder that the world doesn’t take Christ and His true church seriously anymore, because you now have more of such clowns running about town! Besides, who can hear the Gospel when they are too busy laughing themselves silly? If you aren’t convinced, here’s a secular TV […]
The simple truth of life in this world for the Christian is that the more he is like the world, the more the world loves him. The more he is like Christ, the less this world loves him. The obedient believer must learn to accept the scorn of this world for his faith, intellect, and […]
Enough is enough already! When will this madness end? HT: A Little Leaven
Just found this over at I’m Speaking Truth: It also appears that Todd’s is leaving his wife: Separation May End Bentley’s Lakeland Appearances Todd Bentley, the evangelist who has led the Florida Outpouring revival here in Lakeland since April 2, has filed for separation from his wife and might not return to the revival, according […]
In light of all the discussion surrounding music, I thought this piece by Columnist Ben Ratliff of the New York Times on High Desert Church in Victorville, California is apropos. If I didn’t know any better after reading his whole article, I’d think Christianity is all about music. I’ve quoted fifteen points from this article […]
As I was driving along I-40 here yesterday, I saw something that started a chain of free-association in my head, and landed me on this thought: should we begin calling false converts “cowboy Christians?” Allow me to explain: You see these guys all the time. They look the part. They act the part. They dress […]
