Sowell: Carson Media Flaps

Sowell: Carson Media Flaps

Unfortunately, the moment Dr. Carson entered the political arena it became inevitable that the media would try to discredit him, since any prominent conservative black figure is a threat to the left’s vision and the Democrats’ voting base. The flimsy basis for the current attacks only demonstrates the media’s bias and desperation.

Ten Differences Between True Shepherds and Entertainers

Ten Differences Between True Shepherds and Entertainers

The fact of the matter is, if you are a local church pastor, chief executive officer of a ministry or business, you are called to lead not entertain. Many do not understand the difference. If your primary goal is to make people happy, become an entertainer, not a leader. Leaders by nature should be on the cutting edge of God’s will, which challenges people to leave their comfort zones.

Identifying Hyper-authoritarian Doctrines and Practices

Identifying Hyper-authoritarian Doctrines and Practices

Hyper-authoritarian doctrines and practices have become cemented into the foundation, fabric, and functions of many churches and even whole denominations or networks of churches. The problem has become so widespread that it is almost pandemic in Pentecostal and Neo-Pentecostal churches. But, the reason these scripturally-condemned doctrines and practices have been able to proliferate and endure is that they have been going on so long that the present generations of church-goers in these ecclesiastical groupings have been reared in these cultures where domination and control by church leaders is the norm and are accepted as being normal.

ICA-USA Bishop IDs Seven Catholic False Teachings

ICA-USA Bishop IDs Seven Catholic False Teachings

With the election of Pope Francis and his imminent visit to the United States, there is a resurgent interest in the Roman Catholic Church. It is without dispute that the Roman Catholic Church is a major force in the earth with 1.5 billion adherents, its roots in the first century church, it has historically been an amazing bulwark against the secular humanistic tide of liberal social values, and has a vast array of effective institutions such as universities, hospitals, charitable organizations and adoption agencies to name a few. It also goes without saying that the divisions in the church since the first millennia have weakened the influence of Christianity in the nations.

SCOTUS Justices Will Have to Answer to the Ultimate Supreme Judge

SCOTUS Justices Will Have to Answer to the Ultimate Supreme Judge

We know we must stand because there is another Judge, a higher Judge who is also the Lawgiver and the one who kept the Law perfectly on our behalf as Savior. The Lord Jesus Christ is no fallen ideologue who should have recused Himself before rendering a lawless judgment. No, His moral law is holy, perfect, right and eternal, and His judgments are always perfect. And on that final day, He will judge the world in righteousness: You, me, your neighbor and yes, those Supreme Court justices, too.

The Curse of Sexual Sins

The Curse of Sexual Sins

God comes down harder on sexual sins than any other kind of sin. The Bible deals extensively with sexual sins. The Bible is full of dire warnings telling us the severe penalty of sexual immorality, yet it is mostly ignored as an old-fashioned idea, not to be taken seriously in this day and age. Nothing could be further from the truth!

A.W. Tozer – A 20th Century Prophet

A.W. Tozer – A 20th Century Prophet

During his lifetime, Tozer, as he preferred, earned the reputation of a twentieth-century prophet. His spiritual gifts afforded him a degree of insight regarding biblical truth and the nature and state of the evangelical church in his day. Able to express his perceptions in a beautiful, simple, forceful manner, Tozer was often the voice of God when the words of others were but echoes. He saw through the fog of modern Christianity, pointing out the rocks on which it might flounder if it continued its course.

Denouncing Charismaniacal “Grave Sucking”

Denouncing Charismaniacal “Grave Sucking”

IS “GRAVE SUCKING” ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF “CHARISMANIA”? By Joseph Mattera There is something gaining more attention in some circles of the charismatic world called “grave sucking”. Evidently, this refers to the practice of a believer going to the grave of a departed saint they revere (for example, Charles Finney or Kathryn Kuhlman) and lay on top of it and/or kneel in front of it so they can receive an impartation of the anointing (or mantle) of the departed saint. This is nothing new. I heard several decades ago that Benny Hinn supposedly visited the gravesite of evangelist Kathryn Kuhlman to get her healing anointing. I also heard recently that a respected prophetic teacher I know visited the grave of Charles Finney (19th century revivalist) and had a tremendous experience with God as He renewed his vision and call to revive …Read Article

ICA Leader Disavows Dominionism

ICA Leader Disavows Dominionism

Regarding my teachings on the kingdom, some with an anti-Christian bias have no doubt referred to me as a Christian dominionist even though I preach against it. Since I am not in agreement with Christian dominionist language, methodology and/or conceptual framework, I will use this missive to give seven reasons why I am not a Christian dominionist. Some reasons are theological and some methodological.

PRAISE, INC

PRAISE, INC

Worship is serious business as far as God is concerned and He wants His people to so consider it when they approach Him. A superficial attitude only reveals a basic unfamiliarity with God on the part of the worshiper. By bringing into the worship experience things incompatible with the nature and character of God can only bring reproach upon the congregation and leadership. The trend today to drag elements of our culture into a service set apart for the worship of God must displease Him.

WARNING #2: Bill Johnson and Bethel Church

WARNING #2: Bill Johnson and Bethel Church

A couple of years ago we sent out a Warning itemizing a number of facts about Bill Johnson’s ministry and Bethel Church in Redding. Numerous witnesses and videos from Bethel show that this church is spreading an “anointing” very similar to Todd Bentley – i.e. spiritual “drunkenness,” jerking, hysterical laughter, “angel orbs,” “fire tunnels,” spirit travel, mystical “portals,” etc. Plus constant talk in their ministry school of bizarre angel encounters and trips to the “third heaven.” All of it has an extremely “New Age” feel. And it is still going on today. (But even worse, as we shall see).

WATCH: David Wilkerson’s Astonishing 1976 PTL Prophecies

WATCH: David Wilkerson’s Astonishing 1976 PTL Prophecies

David Wilkerson, during most of his ministry, and in particular since one day in 1958 when he was thrust into news headlines, was a controversial figure in the ecclesiastical circles. But, he was not controversial in the same way and for the same reasons many people who have basically earned that appellation. David Wilkerson was controversial because he was a genuine modern-day prophet both to the world of the unbelieving and to the church of the purported believing. David Wilkerson simply saw and heard things in the Spirit that others did not, or would not, and boldly and courageously, spoke out about what he saw and heard, not because he chose or even desired to, but because he was called, chosen, and impelled by God to. All of that is the very simplest but all-encompassing definition of who and what a genuine prophet is.

Exposing the Anti-Christianity Secret Society of Freemasonry

Exposing the Anti-Christianity Secret Society of Freemasonry

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Freemasonry

Most Masons get involved with the Lodge out of peer pressure, their friends are in it, their grandfather was in it, and some go into it for business reasons. They see it as a way to progress in their business and social lives. Others are attracted by the secret, mystic rituals and symbolism of Freemasonry. Others see people like the Shriner’s parading around in the red fezzes riding their funny cars in parades when the Shrine circus comes to town.

KUNDALINI WARNING

KUNDALINI WARNING

Five years ago we put out a book and a video series called ‘Kundalini Warning’. It shocked a lot of people at the time. For a long while I felt there was no particular need to update it in any way. But recently we came across some new information that completely stunned everybody we showed it to. It comes from some of the very biggest Charismatic ministries – in their own words – bringing utterly blatant New Age practices into the church.

The Tyranny of One Man’s Opinion

The Tyranny of One Man’s Opinion

President Obama has rejected not only the theory but also the practice of due process by his use of drones launched by the CIA to kill Americans and others overseas. The use of the CIA to do the killing is particularly troubling and has aroused the criticism of senators as disparate in their views as Rand Paul and John McCain, both of whom have argued that the CIA’s job is to steal and keep secrets, and the military’s job is to further national security by using force; and their roles should not be confused or conflated, because the laws governing each are different.

Why I Left Freemasonry

Why I Left Freemasonry

Judging from unquestionable evidences, how can we fail to pronounce Freemasonry an unchristian institution? We can see that its morality is unchristian. Its oath-bound secrecy is unchristian. The administration and taking of its oaths are unchristian and a violation of the positive command of Christ. And Masonic oaths pledge its members to some of the most unlawful and unchristian things:

A Prophetic Prognosis

A Prophetic Prognosis

For three years or so the Lord has been speaking to me out of the prophetic prediction of Malachi 3:1-6 about imminent events that He will be orchestrating in the Church that He is building, i.e., the genuine Body of Christ. In the first quarter of this year, the Lord has been continually increasing the intensity and urgency of what he has been showing and telling me in this regard. I cannot possibly convey much at all of those prophetic insights He’s been communicating to me here in this forum and format or at this time because it is far too expansive and extensive, and I have only recently begun to attempt to transfer it from my spirit to paper, so to speak, or in reality, to computer.

Why Large-Church Pastors Should Attend Area Pastor’s Meetings

Why Large-Church Pastors Should Attend Area Pastor’s Meetings

Outside observers are often surprised to learn that in many cities after churches grow to a certain size, they cut off fellowship with all the other congregations in their area. Pastors of those mega churches pull away from the ministers of the small congregations in the same city, as though they now live in different worlds. They give the impression that they have been elevated to such a higher plane that the only ones who now speak their language lead churches of similar or greater size. The truth, I sometimes suspect, is that they feel more comfortable with peers of similar status who also make the big bucks and do not feel guilty that their income is ten times that of the part-time preacher sitting next to them.
