Are All Angels Safe?

Contrary to popular belief angels are neither chubby little babes with rosy cheeks nor are they exquisite young women with gossamer wings decked out in long flowing gowns. The Bible reveals very little about angels. What we do know is that God sends angels to do His bidding. The Bible mentions two elect holy angels […]

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 51:43 — 20.7MB) Even the most vigilant watchman or woman can become discouraged by the massive pressure building in our nation and around the world to change the church.

Does the Bible really say we’re not to judge?

Some professing Christians become infuriated when a “watchblogger” has the chutzpah to report on a false teacher by name, as if naming names is unbiblical.  High-profile leaders and bloggers who mention heretics by name are often accused of demonizing or judging them. For example, when I expose Rick Warren’s latest effort to unite with globalists, […]

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 […]

On not speaking Jesus’ name: This is what we’ve come to

Washington-based humanist group has petitioned the federal court to find county commissioners in Maryland in contempt and fine them $10,000 per prayer for continuing to allow prayers in Jesus’ name despite a court order.

Pastor’s Toolbox emphasizes big days for a specific purpose

But what is the big purpose? Should we leverage Big Days (Christmas, Easter and Mother’s Day), so that churches can bring a message of the hope we have in Christ alone for the forgiveness of sins and life eternal with Him? Of course we should. After all, a lot of people go/get dragged to church […]

Sin is at the heart of what is wrong in your life

No one has any right to believe that he is indeed a Christian unless he is humbly seeking to obey the teachings of the One whom he calls Lord. Christ once asked a question that can have no satisfying answer, “Why do you call me, `Lord, Lord,’  and do not do what I say?” –A. […]

Denominations and the winds of change

As more denominations find themselves on the brink of decision, many attendees are watching to see which way the wind will blow their leaders: Will it be the winds of change and compromise?

Greg Laurie promotes Furtick’s new book

What in the world? As one who has been getting Pastor Furtick’s promotional emails for awhile now, I had a chance to read a sample chapter the pastor is sharing, complete with direct extra-biblical revelations.

Tomorrow night on what we call Christmas Eve, millions of Americans will flock to churches of differing Christian denominations.  Many will flock there out of a sense of religious obligation—you know, getting the mundane responsibilities out of the way so we can be with family and watch football.

What's our end of the deal?

It is human nature to take for granted the things we cherish. Whether it is that new car, a brand new big screen television, or our latest technology gadget, the excitement of that new possession grows faint as we become familiar with it. Sadly it is even the same in our personal relationships. The joy […]
