Is Full Blown Apostasy Right Around the Corner?

I am fascinated when I compare the first century Christian church with what we see in America these days.

Our guest today says God miraculously saved him from hard core drugs in the 80’s;  saved him from religion and legalism in the 90’s. This past decade he was saved from deception. A deception that has many Christians in its clutches. Between the years 2001-2008, Kevin Kleint was the web master for the Elijah List, […]

Telling the truth in a hostile world

Telling the truth in a hostile world

It’s one thing to have spiritual discussions and even disagreements with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ over theological differences. But when you are talking about spiritual matters with those who do not know Jesus, either by choice or because they’ve simply not heard, we do need to start with where people are.  The problem […]

Is the Church submerging?

Is the Church submerging?

The Bible warns us about a great delusion that will take place prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself wants to warn us so that we will be prepared, and said that many of us will fall away.  Is that delusion already underway in our Body of Christ today? We’ve talked about […]

Sheep

The Fleecing of Christianity

It seems no one wants to rock the boat anymore. We’ve become a Body of sheep who have been groomed by the world and by the Church that Christianity is about being nice and being tolerant.  It has made us vulnerable not only to full-on frontal attacks, but subtle, sweet sounding lies that almost sound […]

How to hear God's voice 100% of the time!

I found this article over at the Letter of Marque site, and it is a response to the popular experiential teachings by some who claim that we must all be in tune to hear God’s voice–His actual voice–speaking into our lives. I have seen many Christians, young people in particular, who have been tragically harmed […]

“He will give beauty for ashes, joy instead of mourning, praise instead of despair.” – Isaiah 61:3. There are days when it is hard to cling to that Truth.  It seems that there is no shortage of challenges that the Body of Christ faces in these days that we are in. And there are some […]

Disjointed apostasy movements? I don't think so…

The greatest military leaders are ones who can see beyond the current battle conditions and take a strategic look at what the enemy is up to.  They understand that deception is a big part of warfare and that enemies often try to lull their opponents into a false sense of security as they lay a […]
