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?

The Prosperity Priestess and the Pied Pieper of IHOP

More and more professing Christians are uniting with wolves in sheep’s clothing. Likewise, wolves and wolverines are joining forces with wolves from different wolf packs. The pack is growing.

Christian Singer Michael Gungor Makes More Outrageous Claims

Not only does Michael Gungor deny the historical accuracy of the creation and Flood accounts—but he believes Jesus Christ was probably wrong, too! Or worse yet, that Christ might have just lied to the Jews about it. This is a sad place for a professing Christian to be in.

Man arrested and charged for turning over book tables at Osteen’s church

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 […]
