Can We Define “Christian”?

First, for our international audience, please bear with us as we try to solve problems we are experiencing in our online streaming.  You can always catch our podcasts posted later today. More than 80% of the citizens of our nation call themselves “Christians”.   But many of them profess beliefs directly contradicted by the Word […]

Our children, confusion and clarity

The visible church certainly has some challenges these days with the legality of same sex marriage and a culture of sin becoming more acceptable in the pews, and even in some who shepherd the flock. But wait, there’s more. There is a dramatic push in our schools to indoctrinate boys and girls as young as […]

The Next Leaders in the Church

Every generation tends to look at the previous one and sees issues and problems they are determined to fix.  There is a natural human seed of rebellion in us that tells us the older generation is backwards thinking and steeped in tradition–and that “our” generation will get things right. But as the Word of God […]

Maintaining Order in a World of Chaos

  Just when you think this fallen world couldn’t get any more twisted or evil, the morning headlines greet us and the world again testifies to the depravity of man and the need for Jesus Christ.  An insecure former TV star spends millions on a sex change operation, and receives an award for “courage” by […]

Where is Our Allegiance?

As we prepare for another 4th of July celebration in the United States, I notice a change in how I feel this time every year.  I used to feel a sense of pride when I was younger, placing my hand on my heart and pledging allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.  […]

Willow Creek and Christian Leadership

I have been thinking a lot lately about some closing comments I did on Stand Up For the Truth about 4 years ago. I compared our role to a pesky alarm clock that wakes you up at 4am out of a deep sleep, letting you know it is time to wake up and go to […]

If a Duggar came out as a homosexual who’d acted out in the mid-teen years…

There can be little doubt that if a Duggar came out as a homosexual who’d acted out sexually in their mid-teen years, they’d be the most celebrated, adored and defended creature in the modern mainstream media universe. That much should be obvious at this point, whatever one’s perspective might be on the many tragic aspects of the […]

The Battle is Over — But Just Beginning

There is some irony in the fact that the controversy over Religious Freedom Laws in the United States has blown up during the week when we as Christians remember and celebrate the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ—God in the flesh who bore the wrath of God against sin, so that we might be […]

Andy Stanley: Even if you don’t believe that Jesus is the Son of God, you will have a better life by following his teachings

“Who doesn’t want their life to be better?” That’s a question Pastor Andy Stanley asked recently.  And his answers are very telling. When we compare some of Andy Stanley’s teachings lately to Scripture, we’re seeing some many discrepancies. We encourage you to do the comparative work for yourself (as the Bereans did), listening carefully to […]

Pentatonix

Pentatonix and the elephant in the sanctuary

NOTE: The reason for writing/posting about this is not to point fingers at the world, but to ask questions of the visible Church. A big shift is happening, and many are going along with the cultural tsunami rather than make waves being set apart. This time of year many Christians share beautiful hymns and music […]

Remember when a bunch of naked guys on bikes riding past a crowd of little girls was a bad thing?

Remember the good ol’ days when something like a parade of naked men on bikes riding by a bunch of little girls downtown in broad daylight, waving and smiling as they went along, would have resulted in either an arrest, a lynching, or some similarly appropriate beatdown? Such approaches to things like naked men riding […]

Weaponized “Love”: The perversion of Christian love into a weapon of Christian persecution

Ever been called a big, bad meanie for sharing Truth publicly? Ever been called disruptive, divisive, unkind or unloving for taking a clear, public stand on a culturally controversial issue that’s addressed in detail within the pages of Scripture? Have you ever been pressured to be silent after speaking up in such a manner? Have you ever been persecuted […]

Pastor “evolves” his biblical stance after gay son’s sin hits home

It’s all fine and dandy to call yourself a “Bible-believing/preaching church,” until rebellion against God hits close to home and makes you feel uncomfortable. Good news for wishy-washy pastors: Now there is a “Third Way,” in which you can “agree to disagree,” have your cake and eat it too. And best of all, you get […]

Iowa Newspaper Editor Fired for Criticizing ‘Queen James Bible’ on Personal Blog

Should a Christian be fired from his job for having an opinion about the “Queen James?”  This is a “bible” that was recently published to scrub out all verses stating that homosexuality is a sin, as we first reported here: “Queen James Bible” Overwrites God’s Word. What’s interesting about this story is the way in […]

Matthew Vines gives LGBT-affirming pastors their talking points

Emergent Leftist Tony Campolo is not the only one hoping traditional churches embrace this book. They want change, and they want it now. “But not yet,” as the sin-affirming leaders are fond of saying. First, they have to lay the groundwork so that those who still cling to the “homosexuality is a sin” belief will […]

So for all of the homosexual couples hoping to work for a Christian organization, you are out of luck for now. Why did this reversal come about?  Was it the outcry from a handful of […]

Matthew Vines’ latest: Getting your church to “reform”

There is a huge difference between repentant sinners (which all true Christ followers are), and unrepentant sinners, which Jesus spoke of frequently as a warning.  Here is an update on what Matthew Vines is doing to make solid churches “bend the rules” for unrepentant sin:   Post by Stand Up For The Truth.

Multiple sources: Joel Osteen says God "absolutely accepts homosexuals"

We know that Pastor Osteen has been duped once before by cyber hackers who have created fake websites looking exactly like Osteen’s ministry site, so when we saw the many “Joel Osteen: God ‘Absolutely’ Accepts Homosexuals,” headlines, we wanted to be sure that this was not the case before sharing this report and video of […]
