Liberalism’s Warm Fuzzy God

May 9, 2015

For a number of years a woman I know, I’ll call her Rachel, has wrestled with giving her life to Christ.  She admits she really wants to, but how can she when she’d have to serve a God who allows murderers into heaven and sends “good people” to hell?  It would be awkward to have to explain to her husband, family and friends that they’re bound for hell if they reject Christ.  In other words, Rachel won’t play by God’s rules because His rules make her uncomfortable.  In her way of thinking the God of the... Read article

Glenn Beck Receives A “Mantle” From A False Prophet

April 26, 2015

Chuck Pierce claims he’s a “prophet” in the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) or what many refer to as Dominionism.  Because of Pierce’s elevated status, he recently bestowed a “new mantle for the future” on Glenn Beck, popular TV/radio host, author and speaker.  “Prophet” Pierce presented the mantle to Beck at Global Spheres Center in Corinth, Texas as Mrs. Beck looked on. Beck’s fans often hear him boast that he’s a Christian.  But let me assure you that nothing could be further from the truth. ... Read article

Be Skeptical of Dr. Oz’s Remedies and Rick Warren’s “Plans”

February 1, 2015

Dr. Mehmet Oz, who is a renowned cardiothoracic surgeon, author and host of a successful TV show, has involved himself in some, um, questionable cures for what ails you.  According to a Fox News report, a recent study showed that “Half of Dr. Oz’s health advice is bad.”  Die-hard Oz fans will more than likely ignore the study results and continue tuning into his TV show for advice from him and the panel of doctors that appear regularly, even knowing that Oz and the other doctors often recommend products straight... Read article

Bethel Church’s “Apostle” Bill Johnson: A Comedy of Errors, Part 2

November 11, 2014

Before I report on Apostle Bill’s endeavor to involve his followers in his “grave sucking,” undertaking, I must tell you a brief story that involves an angel, a gift, and slaying a dragon. May 2005 Wednesday night at half past 11, I was in bed reading when a white lightning bolt struck the floor and out stepped a dazzling creature with wings the length of a 747.  “Do not fear!” he said when he saw the alarmed expression on my face. “I am the angel Archibald!”  My husband was sacked out next to me with a... Read article

Bethel Church’s “Apostle” Bill Johnson: A Comedy of Errors, Part 1

October 21, 2014

Bill Johnson is no stranger to controversy.  For one thing, he claims to be an apostle, as in the unique position held by the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ.  He was given this high honor by C. Peter Wagner who holds many titles himself, including president of Global Harvest Ministries, chancellor of Wagner Leadership Institute, convening apostle of theNew Apostolic Roundtable, and my personal favorite: presiding apostle of International Coalition of Apostles (ICA).  So for the purpose of this article I’ll dub him... Read article

Christian Meditation: What’s Biblical And What’s Not

September 28, 2014

In Joshua 1:8 God said: “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it.”  So, what exactly did God have in mind when He told Joshua to meditate on His word?  Well we can be certain of one thing.  The Lord was not suggesting that Joshua sit in the lotus position and repeat a mantra until he attained altered states of consciousness.  “These help bring one into states other than normal waking... Read article

The Prosperity Priestess And The Pied Pieper of IHOP

September 20, 2014

Well lookie here.  Joyce Meyer, popular women’s conference speaker; health and wealth author; radio & TV teacher (whew!) has been invited to speak at the Onething Conference that will be held this December.  The 4 day weekend supposedly draws 25,000 young adults.  Visit Onething and you will find that the conference is “a gathering of believers who are setting their hearts to live with passion for Jesus.”  Sounds like a conference most Christians would love to attend.  What sincere believer wouldn’t want... Read article

The Low-Information Evangelical – Part 2

August 31, 2014

Appearing in part 1 is the phrase “low-information voter” (LIV) which is oft used by a popular radio talk show host.  The host suggests that those who make up this population set are individuals who vote for a candidate or important issue having little or in most cases zero knowledge about either.  LIVs are highly opinionated even when they have no idea what they’re talking about. Also included in part 1 was the following quote from D. Edmund Wright.  I appreciate the way he expands on the LIV concept: But... Read article

The Low-Information Evangelical – Part 1

August 16, 2014

We are told throughout the New Testament to judge, to test, to discern, to assess, to rebuke, to hold one another to account, to make moral distinctions, and to pronounce judgment when and where it is due. ~ Bill Muehlenberg The phrase low-information voter (LIV) was made popular in the mid-1990s.  Although the LIV is uninformed on the issues, he casts his vote.  The LIV is often highly opinionated even when he has no idea what he’s talking about.  A popular conservative talk show host has labeled a segment... Read article

Cowardly Christian Entertainers

June 22, 2014

During an interview with The Independent last year, country western star Carrie Underwood, a professing Christian, got the media’s full attention when she decided to come out in support of gay “marriage.”  “As a married person myself,” she chirped, “I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry.  I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.”  Underwood... Read article

Glenn Beck Goes Off On “Religious People”

June 2, 2014

“The Doctrine and Covenants leaves no doubt about the Mormon teaching of exclusivity when it says the LDS Church is, ‘the only true and living church upon the face of the whole earth, with which I, the Lord, am well pleased….’” Glenn Beck recently threw a hissy fit on his daily radio program over “religious people [who] claim to be followers of Christ” getting upset that he was the featured convocation speaker at Liberty University (LU).  Beck accused those who were concerned over a cultist preaching... Read article

Does The Bible Really Say We’re Not To Judge?

May 12, 2014

Some professing Christians become infuriated when a “watchblogger” has the chutzpah to report on a false teacher by name, as if naming names is unbiblical.  High-profile leaders and bloggers who mention heretics by name are often accused of demonizing or judging them. For example, when I expose Rick Warren’s latest effort to unite with globalists, Catholics, Muslims, New Age/New Thought occultists, and when I examine his health plan and his penchant fortwisting Scripture (he often uses it as a tool to... Read article

World Vision, Christian Organization?

May 3, 2014

I wrote about the controversy swirling around the so-called Christian organization World Vision here.  For those who are unaware of what occurred on March 24, WV announced that they had plans to hire “married” homosexuals. The backlash was fast and furious. Christian leaders, Roman Catholics, the pro-family movement and others in the faith community made it abundantly clear that they opposed WV’s decision to hire people in counterfeit marriages on the grounds that the Bible teaches that homosexuality’s... Read article

World Vision – Christian Organization?

April 26, 2014

Part 1 The dust has settled a bit since Christian humanitarian aid organization World Vision’s March 24 announcement that it would hire gay couples who are legally married in the state in which they reside.  Since “World Vision-gate” remains a hot topic, it’s time for some introspection; likewise to do some digging to find out if WV truly is a Christian organization, as it claims. When WV announced its decision to hire gay people, not surprisingly Bible believing Christians found the decision unsettling.  Clearly... Read article

Addressing Concerns Over “Son of God” Film

March 11, 2014

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. ~ Eph 5:11 Not surprisingly the movie “Son of God” has created quite a stir in the Christian community.  Before I gave the theater my money I read several reviews, blog posts, Facebook comments and viewed TV interviews of husband and wife team Mark Burnett and Roma Downey promoting their film.  Roma is a familiar face to many and is best-known for her role on the successful TV show “Touched by An Angel.”  Mark Burnett is the executive... Read article

A Culture of Counterfeit Christians

March 3, 2014

Have you ever run over a dead skunk in the road?  I have, during a heat wave.  The smell got into my tires and permeated our garage for days!  I’ll go out on a limb and say that no one takes pleasure in the highly offensive smell of skunk spray, dead or alive. My point in telling you this is that to God the stench of sin is much worse than skunk.  For an example of just how much the Lord hates sin, grab a cup of coffee and read First and Second Kings.  Given our penchant for getting things fast, here’s... Read article
