On contending, confessing and compromise

When people die in their rebellion against God, the Bible is very clear about their fate. But while it is still today, do we care enough to roll up our sleeves and content for the faith – even when the unbelievers are hateful toward you? Our guest Robert Meyer shares a personal testimony in an […]

New Age pandemic in the Church

Profanity, pornography, filthy programs on TV and on movie screens are occurrences we live with on a daily basis.  Most of us find it vulgar and offensive.  Our children are watching.  We want Hollywood to stop polluting our culture. On the other hand, the New Age movement (NAM) with its Eastern-influenced moral relativistic metaphysical thought […]

On eating pork, rules and the Judaizers

“In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.” Mark 7:19 is as clear as it can possibly be. We are not under the dietary laws. Remember before the Law was given, Noah and his descendents were given all animals, every creeping thing, to eat as part of the covenant. (Before that it was every green […]

Walking in the light as the modern church grows darker

See how great a love the Father has bestowed on us, that we would be called children of God; and such we are. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. 2 Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we […]

What kind of Justice?

What kind of justice are we seeing in the world today? Look to the police situation in New York City or to the mom in the U.K. who is being threatened for showing her kids a Christian movie, and you’d think the world has gone mad. (See, Letter: Child Protective Services Called on mom who […]

Blocked from @Rick Warren on Twitter

Last night I saw a Facebook post about something that Pastor Rick Warren had tweeted. I haven’t looked at the pastor’s tweets in a while, so I clicked on the link, and found this: Curious indeed. I don’t interact with @Rick Warren, and the last time I posted anything with his name on it would […]

Gender Chaos: The Insanity (and Impossibility) of “Sex Change”

One of the more, um, flamboyant manifestations of the wrath of God pouring out upon a proud, unrepentant America, is our culture’s embrace of an “anything goes” approach to sexuality, which has metastasized into an anything goes attitude on the very concept of gender itself. We see it everywhere – in Starbucks commercials, Apple ads, […]

Why is the beast of Socialism eating our children? Ask your pastor.

Ah, State-controlled children’s “education”. Is there anything more warmly regarded by the typical American? Right outta the Communist Manifesto, yet adored and defended by most professing conservatives in America. Built plainly upon the satanic approach to the pursuit of knowledge, yet adored and defended by most professing Christians in America. Talk about a gigantic, disgusting, yet very much cherished […]

Painful lessons for states and churches

“Gender is not assigned at birth, it is recognized at birth,” says our guest today.  School boards in state after state in our union are making decisions about transgender policies that are based on a lie: That we can choose whichever gender we like, regardless of who God created us to be.  Thirty-three states now […]

What did Jesus command?

Jesus said that if we love Him, we will obey all that He commanded. (John 14:15) So what did Jesus command? He wasn’t talking about keeping the Old Testament Law, nor was He telling us we need to have a works-based salvation to get into Heaven. But we are to obey Him as an act […]

Back to the basics: a conversation about the Emergent Church

Four years ago we began covering the Emergent Church movement. And then back in 2011, several popular pastors made an  astounding statement on their blogs: The emergent church movement is over. Dead.  If the Emergent Movement is “so yesterday,” why are more and more churches climbing on board the neo-emergent bus?  Why are youth-targeted conferences […]

Would the Son of God Contradict the Father?

Is it true that Jesus never mentioned anything about homosexuality?  That He never brought it up, even once?  Most of us have heard the argument that the Gospels have no record of Jesus condemning homosexuality.  There are individuals, especially from the militant homosexual rights movement, who utter this fabrication with all the raw hostility of liberals who think abortion is their […]

The price of contending

Often believers are told they are intolerant, unloving and narrow-minded for not going with the flow of an ever-changing culture. Many Bible believing Christians are dismayed by the way they are being rejected by not just the world, but their friends, family members and even those in their church for standing firm on God’s Word […]
