Andy Stanley: Even if you don’t believe that Jesus is the Son of God, you will have a better life by following his teachings

“Who doesn’t want their life to be better?” That’s a question Pastor Andy Stanley asked recently.  And his answers are very telling. When we compare some of Andy Stanley’s teachings lately to Scripture, we’re seeing some many discrepancies. We encourage you to do the comparative work for yourself (as the Bereans did), listening carefully to […]

BSF, Jesus Calling and a plea from the heart

I remember the first time I “got” the Gospel. It was in a woman’s Bible study group called BSF, or Bible Study Fellowship. For the past 50 years and up until I left four years ago, BSF International has been solid (as far as I knew), offering a full year of weekly studies for men, […]

No, we don’t focus on the Illuminati

From time to time, listeners ask us about some of the conspiracy theories out there – especially in the music industry. Specifically, they want to know about the Illuminati, secret societies or symbols like the all-seeing eye. You’ll notice those pastors who are excellent at faithfully preaching the Word and protecting their flocks against various […]

From where does the righteousness of the Christian come?

7 but what things were gain to me, these I have considered loss on account of Christ. 8 But even more so I consider all things to be loss on account of the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, on account of whom all things I suffered loss and I consider them […]

The Pope meets with charismatic evangelicals June 24, 2014

Should Christians dialogue with obvious apostates and heretics?

This era of the Church is one of extreme deception due to compromise with the standards and focus of the world. Separation between the Church and the world is not being kept. Instead, the holy barrier between the two has been breached as false prophets have welcomed in not only the world and its ways […]

Sin Pill2n650w

Sin? We have a pill for that.

Sin’s Symptoms as “Disease” As Christians, we understand that things such as emotional pain, depression, and the like are often (though certainly not always) related to another term that we don’t hear much of in televised drug commercials or read about in prestigious journals of medicine: Sin. As Christians, we also understand that sin leads to […]

The (church built) Zombie Apocalypse is upon us…

On one side are zombies. They are completely dead spiritually, self-obsessed slaves to sin, lovers of the flesh, and haters of holiness and its Author. On the other side are supernaturally regenerated “new creatures” in Christ.

Being ‘Radical’ and ‘Missional’ The New Legalism?

As a Christian, I lead a pretty uneventful life.  I used to feel guilty that my life wasn’t radical enough, until someone reminded me about 1 Thessalonians 4:11!  We don’t have to be flying to exotic places or taking out billboard ads to share the hope we have in Christ. Don’t get me wrong, those […]

Destroy a Church in 4 Simple Steps

Church rents active stripper club for Sunday worship

Do the ends justify the means?  I have a real problem calling this a Gentlemen’s Club. It’s a stripper club where men pay money to see young women take off their clothes for entertainment. So why would a Christian pay money to support this wretched industry? According to the ministry leaders, it’s to “bring a […]

Pastor turns church into “Fight Club”

Should congregants gather to see two pastors punch each other in the face?  Grab the popcorn, but no need to bring a Bible to this church.  There’s a whole lot of swinging, punching, kicking, sweating and swaggering, but not much mention of the Gospel here at FIGHT CHURCH. And not much in the way of […]
