The visible church is increasingly avoiding the hard truth of John 3:16. Or more specifically, John 3:17-21: …whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness […]

Common Ground meeting: Pope meets with Mormon senator and Joel Osteen

You might be saying to your Evangelical self, “who cares what Joel Osteen does, or what the Pope does, or what a Mormon senator does? These things surely don’t apply to my faith, do they?” But when Muslim, Mormon, Jewish and other faiths intertwine with Catholicism and protestantism within a span of a few days, […]

Filling your head with harmful substances?

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 52:03 — 20.8MB) Today Christians are filling their heads with all sorts of dangerous, soul-darkening things. When last night’s Grammys openly mocked God by staging satanic rituals (thanks Katy Perry), and officiating homosexual marriages (thanks, Queen Latifah), many “Christians” cheered.

Jesus as a revolutionary millennial?

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 53:29 — 12.2MB) Was Jesus a revolutionary millennial, who avoided theological certainty?

Why Oprah Winfrey gets coaching to proclaim: "I Am a Christian"

There is something strange going on in Oprah land. Apparently she is being coached and primed on how to “boldly profess Christ,” and convince people she is a Christian. This in spite of the fact that Oprah Winfrey has publicly said that Jesus is NOT the only way to salvation or heaven, thus denying Him […]

A fast-growing movement with disastrous implications

There are many trends in the Body of Christ that are separating the Truth of a Holy God from those whose ears are eagerly twitching for prosperity, health, wealth and a “gospel” that completely leaves out anything to do with sin (too negative) and the perfect solution: Christ’s atonement. Why name names? Why not just […]
