A few days after Pastor Joel Osteen’s wife, Victoria, came out with this gobsmackingly apostate statement, a man at Lakewood Church was hogtied for going hog wild in the church bookstore – perhaps out of zeal…we don’t know. Which begs the question: Would Jesus have been arrested for doing the same thing? At least this […]

This is disgusting to me. And I am about to lose my mind if I see one more conference promising anything other than the eternal Hope we have in Christ. What if my “larger story” isn’t about living to my potential or fulfilling my fleshly dreams for myself, but living for Him, even to the […]
I get the Catalyst newsletters and email alerts, so that I can keep an eye on what the world’s premiere Emergent Church conference series is up to.

Yes, we know that even the mainstream media has reported Hamas is using children and women as human shields. Our friend Elijah Abraham alerted us to this photo a few days ago. It’s a photo that has gone viral. I’ve been waiting for it to be debunked or claimed by official sources as a hoax. It […]
