    THE DRASTIC RADICALS NEEDED

    God has always had His specialists whose chief concern has been the moral breakdown, the decline in the spiritual health of the nation or the Church. Such men were Elijah, Jeremiah, Malachi, and others of their kind who appeared at critical moments in history to reprove, rebuke, and exhort in the name of God and righteousness.

    A thousand or ten thousand ordinary priests or pastors or teachers could labor quietly on, almost unnoticed, while the spiritual life of Israel or the Church was normal. But let the people of God go astray from the paths of truth, and immediately the specialist appeared almost out of nowhere. His instinct for trouble brought him to the help of the Lord and of Israel.

    Such a man was likely to be drastic, radical, possibly at times violent, and the curious crowd that gathered to watch him work soon branded him as extreme, fanatical, negative. And in a sense they were right. He was single-minded, severe, fearless, as these were the qualities the circumstances demanded. He shocked some, frightened others, and alienated not a few, but he knew Who had called him and what he was sent to do. His ministry was geared to the emergency, and that fact marked him out as different, a man apart. —A.W. Tozer

Easter or Resurrection Sunday?

While Easter festivities are now observed by Christian groups around the world, the irrefutable fact is that the observance is entirely without Biblical precedence, and in truth owes its origins to pagan worship of the ancient goddess Astarte and her counterpart in Teutonic mythology, the Greek goddess of spring, Eostre, who pagans lavished with hedonistic worship in a festival named after her that was held each year on the vernal equinox, March 21st, in hopes of evincing her favor with the beneficences of a warm and bright springtime after enduring the bleaknesses of a long, cold and dreary winter. Many of the festivities associated with Easter today, such as “Easter Egg Hunts” and the “Easter Bunny,” which have no connection whatever to the resurrection of Christ, and are carry-overs from the pagan festivals. Eggs and rabbits, for obvious reasons, have long been symbols of fertility and reproduction in paganism and mythology.

GOTHARD-GATE: Bill Gothard’s Free-Fall From Grace

GOTHARD-GATE: Bill Gothard’s Free-Fall From Grace

The prominent principal behind the “Basic Life Principles” Seminars, Bill Gothard, amid sexual harassment and predatory charges by a bevy of whistle-blowing women, has been forced to resign from his multimillion dollar a year ministry organization. Some three dozen women, now in their thirties and early forties, allege the 79-year old, never-married, ordained minister of more than five decades, has engaged in a pattern of deviant sexual misconduct against them and other young, some underage, women, going all the way back to the earliest beginnings of Gothard’s ministry in 1961.

The GOP’s Suicidal Ideation

The GOP’s Suicidal Ideation

Leave it to the Republican Party to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. While nearly every poll definitively affirms that Democrats are in deep doo-doo come November, and as leftist talking heads like Chris Matthews have already conceded a likelihood that Republicans will take the Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections, many of the GOP’s highest profile personalities obtusely refuse to take yes for an answer.

Exposing the Dangers of Hyper-Grace

Exposing the Dangers of Hyper-Grace

There is no doubt in my mind, then, that the notion of a “grace reformation” (or “grace revolution”) is highly exaggerated, that some of this new grace teaching is unbalanced, overstated, at times unbiblical, and sometimes downright dangerous – and I mean dangerous to the well-being of the Body of Christ.

Christians and Tattoos?

Christians and Tattoos?

A lot of Christians when confronted with Leviticus 19:28, scream, “Hey dude, that’s not for today. Man, that’s the Old Testament. I’m under the New Testament”. Did you know that “bestiality” (sicko, perverted, sex with an animal) was ONLY forbidden in the Old Testament Levitical Law? Only in Leviticus 18:23 and Leviticus 20:15-16. Dude, only in the Old Testament Law. Does that mean a Holy God NOW – under the New Testament, approves of bestiality?
By the way, have you ever read Leviticus 19:29? The verse immediately AFTER the “it’s not for me” Leviticus 19:28?

America’s Lost Dream

America’s Lost Dream

Without authorization of Congress or consulting public opinion, a few self-appointed individuals are changing the fundamental concept of our nation’s legal system and erasing its spiritual heritage. Our Founding Fathers did not leave us without guidance as to their intent for the balancing of civil and religious matters in American life. Today, these men are being replaced by traitors to the cause of freedom. Our forefathers clearly expressed their position in the Declaration of Independence when they said: “And for the support of this declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, and Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” When the U.S. Supreme Court building was constructed with Moses and the Ten Commandments given the most prominent position, it was with the full blessing of Congress and the American people.

Dunamis! Power From On High!

Dunamis! Power From On High!

The matter of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is without question, the most controversial matter in the annals of Church history. And for centuries the deceiver (Satan) has deceived people into thinking that the matter of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a denominational or sectarian issue, and thereby has kept multitudes of believers from receiving the supernatural power of God in their lives that the Baptism in the Holy Spirit brings into believers’ lives, because the last thing on earth that Satan wants more believers to be empowered with the POWER OF GOD in the manner that Jesus was, lest they perform the works that Jesus did and even greater works to “destroy the works of the Devil” as Jesus did in His appearance!

Remembering Evangelist Steve Hill

Steve Hill, the evangelist who brought an untold myriad to Christ over decades of ministry, the best part of two of which was after he had decided to give up on the ministry after fulfilling his last scheduled engagement on Father’s Day, June 18, 1995, at Brownsville Assembly of God church in Pensacola, Florida, graduated from his earthly course on March 9th, and matriculated to receive his eternal rewards from his Lord, Master, and Savior, Christ Jesus. Many articles have been scribed already, many more will come. His life and ministry was worthy of all such human tribute.

David Yonngi Cho Case, Post Facto

David Yonngi Cho Case, Post Facto

[Editor's note: In an article posted on Charisma Magazine at 1:30 PM, 25 hours after its original posting reporting David Yonggi Cho's being found guilty of embezzlement and tax-evasion charges, Charisma Magazine then posted the following article by a pastor claiming to have been present at the trial and being a longtime close friend and adviser to Cho. Bob Rodgers' article reports details of the sentencing as well as the facts of the case that conflict with Charisma's original article by Jennifer Leclaire, and places the blame for the embezzlement of church funds and tax-evasion scheme squarely on Cho's eldest son and some treacherous church elders who essentially duped the elder Cho into signing some papers without comprehending their contents …Read Article

The Pulpit is Responsible!

The Pulpit is Responsible!

We need a renewed hunger for God’s will in our lives. The need for courageous and persevering leadership is needed more today than ever before. We live in a world of global challenges and seeming uncertainties. The faith of many has been shaken, causing disillusionments, disappointments and discouragements. Their vision of hope and faith is blurred so they are distracted from God’s intended destination (destiny) for their lives. WE NEED VOICES OF TRUTH with a timely and critical message that reminds us of the proper foundations and order of faith, as well as equips us to fight the good fight of faith. We have plenty of preachers and politicians who are oratorically gifted, yet many lack the character and substance to go with it. We are not in need of more opinions and ideas by theorists, but those who will lead us in the paths of truth and great expectations that only comes from a hope beyond ourselves.

Acquiring A Divine Perspective

Acquiring A Divine Perspective

Let us view from a different vantage point. Let us hear from His voice. Let us gather a perspective so solidifying it becomes the foundation for our fellowship. May we spend time in the secret place of the Most High. May we view things as He does and call forth those things that reflect His will. May we never stop repeating, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” May we climb the Mountain of God and stay there until we hear, “You have dwelled long enough in this mountain.” Then let us burst onto this holocaust of hell (called modern society) while marching around their walled Jerichos and watch their walls fall.

Four Hyper-Grace Fallacies

Four Hyper-Grace Fallacies

The bottom line is that Jesus said that the truth sets us free (John 8:32), and if the message of hypergrace is not true, as I and many others contend, then it is by rejecting that error and embracing the full testimony of God’s Word—thereby embracing God’s true grace—that freedom and liberty will come.

The Hubris of John MacArthur

The Hubris of John MacArthur

John MacArthur’s recent attack against the Charismatic/Pentecostal movement has certainly put him in the cross hairs of many. What possessed him to lash out against us is unknown. Was it sheer arrogance, ignorance or was he tempted or troubled by an evil spirit of some sort?

Condemn Not! You May Be the One That’s Wrong!

Condemn Not! You May Be the One That’s Wrong!

All of us should examine ourselves to be sure that we are “in the faith” (2 Cor. 13:5) and all of us should be diligent to “confirm [our] calling and election” (2 Pet. 1:10), and this does mean falling into performance-based religious exercises but rather living out our calling to be God’s children (see 2 Pet. 1:3-11; this is our response to what God has graciously done for us). At the same time, we need to be very careful about setting ourselves up as the ultimate judge of who is saved and who is lost–meaning, among those who claim to be followers of the Jesus of the Scriptures.

Are We Charismatics Doing Enough to Correct Abuses in Our Midst?

Are We Charismatics Doing Enough to Correct Abuses in Our Midst?

In fact, one of the real problems in the body today is the lack of true accountability for many leaders and churches (charismatic and non-charismatic alike), making it very difficult to bring correction and discipline when it is needed. (To be perfectly candid though, there were errors that existed in New Testament times and in the succeeding centuries; the church has always had to confront error and heresy.)
