Time to stand?

About a year ago, we compiled a list of resources for those who are alarmed by their church leadership’s affiliation with the Willow Creek Association.  (See, Here’s your Willow Creek/Global Leadership Summit research) Why did we do this? Because the Willow Creek model was developed by a non-Christian business guru named Peter Drucker, who also […]

Is the Visible Church Surrendering on the Homosexual Issue?

Fresh off the SCOTUS ruling legalizing homosexual marriage, activists are pressing their advantage and seeking to silence anyone who disapproves of an act that the Bible clearly calls sinful.  Businesses are being threatened, and churches and Christian ministries are being warned that any public statements disapproving of homosexual marriage will be costly.  The battle for […]

Which “Spirit” Will We Listen to?

The collapse of a nation, an economy—or even a religion can happen in a couple different ways. Sometimes there is a single catastrophic event that destroys the foundation of institutions—but often it is years of smaller attacks at the foundation of institutions that eventually cause a collapse from within—or collapse from a relatively small event—sort […]

Cowardice in Leadership

Today we continue to look at the fall out from the legalization of homosexual marriage and how Christian “leaders” are responding.  Some government employees are refusing to issue homosexual marriage licenses, citing religious conviction.  The response: comply or be fired. And Joel Osteen has weighed in on the decision.  Could he actually have a strong […]

Bill Hybels: Coffee With God

Does God like dark roast or medium blend?  This is what happens when we allow the seeker model to disciple seekers. Or maybe it’s the chair.  God puts thoughts in your mind when you have the right chair, and you’ll feel His presence for sure. Tips for viewing this new slick flick from Bill Hybels: […]

Lines are drawn. Which side are you on?

It has been an interesting week to say the least. The co-founder of Red Letter Christians, Tony Campolo, has finally come out and publicly acknowledged what many of us suspected for a long time—his full time endorsement for LGBT inclusion and acceptance within Biblical Christianity. And a worship leader at Bill Hybels’ Willow Creek Church […]

Chipping Away at Church

The Christian Church in America is under increasing pressure to compromise with and conform to the “values” of this fallen, sinful world.  While it is no surprise that the world hates the Christian Church, it is alarming how many who profess to be Christians within the church seem to be active or passive participants in […]

On scolding Christians

Today we’re going to cover an interesting story about prayer, faith, scolding and fleecing the flock.  One popular Prosperity/name-it-claim-it pastor recently made a very public announcement that he is trusting God to give him a 65 million private jet. Today he is scolding all those Christians who criticized his campaign, and said that there’s no […]

Anti-Israel Radicals, Evangelical-Style

“When one considers that Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, Bob Roberts Jr., Shane Claiborne and Ed Stetzer are helping to mainstream rapprochement with Islam (my view of the situation), it follows that those they mentor are doing likewise.” The following is posted by Jim Fletcher over at Rapture Ready: In a recent editorial in Commentary, the […]

Seeker-Mergent and Asking the right questions

Today we’re covering an outrageous article from a Christian progressive site that claims we’ve had the Jesus, faith and the Bible taught to us wrong all along. It’s one of the latest lies from the enemy designed to doubt the truth of who God is. We also want to briefly address a church growth conference […]

The Neo Emergents: Are you following this new mixed breed?

Brian McLaren, Dan Kimball, Leonard Sweet, Rob Bell – all Emergent leaders who’ve moved into more of a “coach” position. Who are the New Emergent Leaders today? Lots of names you may not have heard of. Leadership Network (the original Druckerite emergent machine), is hooked up with a number of the Next Gen emergent leaders. […]

Willow Creek’s WCA president now heads Compassion International

Several concerned listeners have asked me in recent weeks to check out the newly-appointed president of Compassion International. After a year-long search, Compassion hired Santiago “Jim” Mellado as its head. As we read his bio, it turns out those concerns are valid red flags that perhaps this international agency may have compassion, but not much […]

Contending with Humility

I have been thinking and praying a lot about how things have gotten to where they are spiritually in America. There is no doubt we are rapidly becoming an apostate nation and “church”. When 55 million children are sacrificed to our personal god of wealth and convenience—and when we sit back and watch marriage be […]

Isaiah 5:20 warns us:  “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” Today we are taking on several controversial issues and making the stand for standing firm in a time when we are seeing this […]

Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit Bus

Here’s your Willow Creek/Global Leadership Summit research

We’ve been getting a lot of calls and emails regarding our hard stance against the Willow Creek Association and the Global Leadership Summit spearheaded by Pastor Bill Hybels. Many church leaders are wondering why their congregants are knocking on the pastor’s door, wanting to know why their church is involved in such agenda-driven carnality. If […]

A blending of religions and governments

We need to open our eyes to the fact that the world and the visible church are calling for the Globalization of our governments, our economies and even our faiths. Are we walking so closely with the Lord that nothing can shake us? Our guest today has been following this globalization that is being shaped […]

Peter Drucker 1909-2005

Who is Peter Drucker, and what did he do with our church?

The Post-Modern church is shaped around what has become the “business” of doing Church. The focus is on growing the numbers, defining the brand and making the customers happy, rather than focusing on feeding the sheep or equipping the saints to bring the Good News of the Gospel to those who don’t know Him. Stand […]

Traditional, Transitional, Transformational – The Slow Suicide of Many Churches

It’s the way it works. Every church that has decided to follow Peter Drucker‘s business model, Bill Hybels’ Willow Creek model, Rick Warren’s Purpose-Driven model – all under the term “Seeker-Friendly”. It begins slow, and continues steadily. The people in these churches are like the frog in a pot of slowly boiling water – never being told […]
