“Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels” – Revelation 12:7 War will always rage between the two great sovereignties until one or other be crushed.  Peace between good and evil is impossibility; the very pretence of it would, in fact, be the triumph of the powers of […]

I should as soon expect a farmer to prosper in business who contented himself with sowing his fields and never looking at them till harvest, as expect a believer to attain much holiness who was not diligent about his Bible reading, his prayers, and the use of his Sundays. – J.C. Ryle 1816 – 1900

Walter Martin on Mormonism.

Give the gift of murder this Christmas.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any lower or more wicked than the fetal bites cookie cutter. From the fetal terrorist organization Planned Parenthood who brought you The Negroe Project, genocidal racism, and propaganda cartoons reminiscent of Nazi Germany, now comes their latest head-dive into evil. Just like King Herod, now you too can […]

Contrasts of death, and another “invitation.”

While just a couple days ago over 100 people died in India at the hands of merciless, bloodthirsty Muslims (and the city is still currently under siege as of the writing of this post), today in America a 34 year-old Wal-Mart employee was killed after being trampled to death when a mob of shoppers broke […]

Quotes (433)

A little plain-speaking would do a world of good just now. These gentlemen desire to be let alone. They want no noise raised. Of course thieves hate watch-dogs, and love darkness. It is time that somebody should spring his rattle, and call attention to the way in which God is being robbed of his glory, […]

The “religion of peace” strikes again!

While America celebrated Thanksgiving, India was reeling from a coordinated attack which targeted Americans and Britons. While we in the States were making plans, preparing meals, and spending time with family, it seems that the “religion of peace” was conducting a “ministry outreach” in India. I don’t want to sound like an alarmist, and this […]

Quotes (432)

I’m sad to say there are some congregations today that seem to be wrestling with who they are and what their mission is—a spiritual identity crisis of sorts. Relentlessly assaulted by doctrinal fads, scandals, divisions, internal and external criticism, and worldly thinking, they’ve buckled under the pressure. The chain reaction that creates is heartbreaking. Doctrine […]

George Washington’s Thanksgiving Day Address, 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States […]

What is on Mark Driscoll’s shirt?

In the following video of Mark Driscoll I observed something that may have gone unnoticed (or ignored) by the masses of Driscollites. Is the image on his shirt truly a depiction Jesus Christ (what we commonly associate in the West as being Jesus for those who will split hairs in Driscoll’s defense)? And is that […]

John MacArthur on TBN?

Yes, it’s true, but wait till you hear what he said.

Quotes (431)

In few countries is the failure of Christian humanism more apparent than in Thailand. There, after 150 years of missionaries showing marvelous social compassion, Christians still make up only two percent of the entire population. Self-sacrificing missionaries probably have done more to modernize the country than any other single force. Thailand owes to missionaries its […]

Sermon of the week: “Monergistic Regeneration” by Arturo Azurdia.

Your sermon of the week is a two-part message entitled Monergistic Regeneration by Pastor Arturo Azurdia. Pastor Azurdia lays out the fundamentals of regeneration: specifically it’s all God and no us, because salvation is of the Lord. Monergistic Regeneration (Part One) Monergistic Regeneration (Part Two) If you enjoyed these messages I recommend checking out the […]

eHarmony falls to gay agenda

The following article was found on HumanEvents.com website. eHarmony which is an online dating service geared towards Christians, has been sued. They lost the suit and now must provide a service to gays looking for other gays. What other hallmarks of the Christian faith will be attacked in the coming years? I mentioned that the […]

Can you reform yourself?

A brief look at Contemporary Christian Music.

This is a great two-part piece examining contemporary Christian music. I also recommend the post Christianity: It’s All About The Music? HT: Berean Wife

“Disciple Shades” spammed the wrong blog.

DefCon oftentimes deals with the shameless marketing of Christianity. In fact we have a whole category devoted to this foolishness entitled Den of Robbers. What makes this one so special, though, is the irony behind it. I discovered these despicable Disciple Shades because the company actually sent their product advertisement to me via the DefCon […]

Goodbye Westminster, hello Behemoth.

Earlier this month my wife stumbled upon something shocking. While perusing Westminster Bookstore (one of our favorite online book sellers) she asked me, “Did you know that Westminster Bookstore is selling Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Church?” I thought to myself there must be some mistake. So I walked from the kitchen over to the computer […]

Who is watching you?

Pretty good message from the heart of a child. It is so true that we as Christians are being watched. Our kids and our grandkids will be watching us to see if what we “say” we believe is really true in our lives. I want to encourage each person to be a person of integrity. […]

Quotes (430)

In every age the church is threatened by heresy, and heresy is bound up in false doctrine . It is the desire of all heretics to minimize the importance of doctrine. When doctrine is minimized, heresy can exercise itself without restraint. – RC Sproul

Tony Jones: The Apostle Paul a Platonist?

What do you think about the state of today’s church?

Quotes (429)

The majority of Christian teaching emphasizes individual doctrines of the Bible rather than presenting the Bible as one complete, interdependent revelation of God. Heresies, misrepresentation, and overemphasis of certain Scriptures, and denominationalism can, in most cases, be traced to this lack of chronological and panoramic Bible teaching. – Trevor Mcllwain From: Firm Foundations: Creation to […]

Studies in Ephesians – Part 22

The Saturday sermon series by Pastor Mark Escalera continues again on the book of Ephesians. This series is entitled Studies in Ephesians: Part Twenty-Two. This message is the exposition of Ephesians 4:14-16 and is the continuation or Part 2 of “The Church’s One Foundation.” We pray you will be encouraged by this series in Ephesians.

Militant homosexuals bring the persecution.

I’ve decided to create a new category on DefCon entitled Christian Persecution. I foresee this phenomenon only increasing in the years to come in the West (it’s nothing new elsewhere in the world) and feel there’s no better time than now to begin chronicling it. So for our first entry in this new category I […]

Quotes (428)

Let’s play “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.” For $500,000: Which of these churches was a growing church in the book of Revelation; the church at Laodicea (Rev 3:14-22), which saw itself as rich and wealthy and in need of nothing or the church at Smyrna (Rev. 2:8-11), which was described as poor, in tribulation, […]

An appalling, sickening, and utterly evil idea springs forth from the wicked and depraved mind of one pro-abortionist.

And the downward spiral of sin continues as the pro-abortionists and supporters of the murder of children revel in their abominable wicked acts. In celebration of Roe v. Wade, a supporter of fetal-terrorism named “Big Pig” created this atrocity called the fetal bites cookie cutter. You can read more about this here at WordNetDaily.com. I […]

Quotes (427)

How can a man be “in the right” before God? This is the dilemma that has tormented men down through history. It caused Martin Luther to crawl on his knees up the steps of the so-called Scala Sancta in Rome, and induced monks to wear hair shirts embedded with fishhooks in an attempt to pay […]

How long before America becomes like Australia?

According to Beyond Blue Stockings, Australia passed a bill last month that allows abortion at any stage of pregnancy and for any reason. With America’s recent election of pro-aborion candidate Barack Hussein Obama to the office of presidency, I wonder how long it will be before we follow suit.
