I created these videos and posted them on DefCon back in September of 2010. Since then, we’ve received many new readers to the blog that may have missed them. So I’ve decided to dust them off and re-post them here so that our new readers can see what happens when a 19th century Mormon meets […]
Back in 2008, I made a cult flyer/gospel tract combo available to the readers of this blog to download for free. Since then, this flyer/tract combo has undergone refinement and is now in its fifth printing. This flyer/tract combo was drafted as a way to inform the public about the truths of the Jehovah’s Witnesses […]
Martin Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981) offers a sobering warning from the grave: “If the West goes down and is defeated, it will be for one reason only: internal rot. . . . If we continue to spend our lives in jollification, doing less and less work, demanding more and more money, more and more pleasure and so-called […]
We often hear how the church has been feminized and thus, we are told that this is partially the reason why men simply won’t darken the doors of church. Well, a flower depicting the Doctrines of Grace will no longer do. We need something more manly. Something like . . . bacon!
I found the following article at Beyond Grace: Word-Faith (WOF) teaching, identified with Ken Copeland and Ken Hagin, is the foundation for today’s prophetic/apostolic movement. Several years ago Tricia Tillin wrote an article on the Top Ten Reasons for rejecting Word-of-Faith doctrine. REASON ONE: It requires ‘revelation knowledge’. REASON TWO: It makes the Almighty God […]
The following is from the Disciple Man blog: You Might Just Be A Calvinist If…. If you have a Martin Luther Jell-O mold… you just might be a Calvinist. If your DVR has over 25 episodes of Wretched With Todd Friel recorded on it… you just might be a Calvinist. If your child’s first word […]
If the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Church in Galatia had been published in the magazine Christianity Today how would it be received? Well, what follows is a dramatization of letters received from readers in response to Paul’s inspired Epistle.

Sometimes a parody can say so much more than a million serious blog posts.
Rejoice with me and be greatly encouraged (and deeply convicted) by watching this video of the Kimyal tribe receiving the New Testament in their language for the first time on March 16, 2010. Quote from the video: “We [in the West] have no idea. We have had the Word of God for so long. We […]
Sermon of the week: “The Deity of Christ – An Examination of the Verses the Cults Use” by Charlie Campbell.
Your sermon of the week is one that defenders of the faith are going to love. The Deity of Christ – An Examination of the Verses the Cults Use by Charlie Campbell examines the eight most commonly used verses that Jehovah’s Witnesses employ to attack Christ’s deity. Campbell does a fantastic job of presenting the […]
Imagine if you will, that you’ve been witnessing to your next door neighbor for years. Let’s call him Bob. Bob is a big burly biker who swears that he’ll never step foot in a church as long as he’s alive. Then one Saturday night he knocks on your door and tells you that he’s been […]
Want to help get doctrinally sound theology books into the hands of pastors in Africa? Here are two ways: 1). There’s the Portuguese Adopt a Pastor program for Mozambique, Africa (along with video introduction) here. 2). You can also support indigenous pastors in Liberia, Africa with books and other resources and learn more about the […]
Ingrid Schlueter hits the nail on the head with her article (reprinted in its entirety below) about pop sensation Justin Bieber and the Christian conservatives who now have a “legitimate” reason to fawn over him because of his announcement that he’s opposed to abortion. I suppose that since Bieber has been Christianized merely because he’s […]
We conclude our five-part series by Phil Johnson entitled A Survey of Heresies with The Socinians. If you’ve missed any of our past installments from this series, you can download the entire series here.
DefCon presents another installment of Old Mormon vs New Mormon. See our previous installment Old Mormon vs New Mormon: The Missouri Prophecies here.

Another DefCon exclusive: What happens when a 19th century Mormon meets a 21st century Mormon? Find out in the first installment of the new series: “Old Mormon vs New Mormon.” And when we get into Jackson county to walk in the courts of that house, we can say we built this temple; for as the […]
DefCon is pleased to introduce its first ever Cultoon. If the dialogue in this Cultoon sounds familiar, it was loosely derived from an actual debate featured on this previous post. Enjoy.
Sometimes the most scathing indictment of the current condition of the church in America comes to us on the wings of clever sarcasm. HT: The Desert Pastor
As a follow-up to Brother Michael’s previous post on Chuck Smith (found here), I’m presenting an audio clip of a critique that James White did in response to an audio clip of Chuck Smith and other Calvary Chapel speakers in which they attacked the Doctrines of Grace, equated Calvinists to cultists, and even opposed God’s […]
If your church is everything the world wants, and nothing what the Lord intended, welcome to Contemporvant.

The problem is not that television presents us with entertaining subject matter but that all subject matter is presented as entertaining. – Neil Postman
The following great piece comes from Jake Hunt at WiserTime: You’ve seen these, right? They make me mad. Why? Because they don’t really mean what they say. Let’s break it down. We’ll call each worldview by the letter it’s supposed to represent. So: C = Islam O = Pacifism E = “Gender equality” (=the LGBT […]
Sometimes you can just use a good laugh. The following video is a great follow-up of the post Woe Unto You. And this video is a great follow-up to The Idolatry of Celebrity Worship.
A few days ago I entered the book section of a local Wal-Mart and was shocked to see a large section of books on Mormonism. And no, this Wal-Mart was not in Utah. I then checked the internet and discovered they even sell Mormonism’s plagiarized piece of fiction known as the Book of Mormon online. […]
