Uniting Religions for Global Change?

Did you know that “Mother Earth” is just waiting for us to hear that we love her, and give her a prayer of gratitude?  In fact, you might consider performing your own water ritual – privately of course – that will bring you closer to Mother Earth than ever before.  Good grief, that sounds like […]

The Altered States of Contemplative Prayer

  Today we’re talking about Contemplative Prayer. Right off the bat, we need to define our words. When we warn you of the dangers of Contemplative Prayer, what we’re not talking about is meditating on God’s Word or contemplating His holy nature and character. We are talking about the man-made methodologies used as a spiritual […]

On scolding Christians

Today we’re going to cover an interesting story about prayer, faith, scolding and fleecing the flock.  One popular Prosperity/name-it-claim-it pastor recently made a very public announcement that he is trusting God to give him a 65 million private jet. Today he is scolding all those Christians who criticized his campaign, and said that there’s no […]

Slippery Slope - free photo

Progressive Christianity

Today we are looking at Progressive Christianity. It is an incredibly dangerous movement, and quite frankly, it is the yeast that has taken the Church away from the truth and toward a more tolerant, sin-affirming direction that is muddied with mushy theology. How can you tell if it has seeped into your church? And if […]

The so-called “Family Values” Christians

(“Pitiable Capitulating Pro-Family Leaders, Part II”) Before the term pro-family was hijacked by liberals (evangelical was also hijacked) supporters were largely made up from conservative Protestants, Roman Catholics, Mennonites, Mormons, Muslims, and Jews, naming just a few.  For the sake of the country, religious conservatives agreed to set aside their differences and pull together a […]

Where is our discernment?

Today we are talking about the NBC Miniseries A.D. The Bible Continues. It is endorsed by some of the biggest and most questionable evangelicals in Christendom. Its theology comes from Roman Catholic mystics. For Christian pastors, you can purchase a pre-packaged product that includes 12 weeks of sermons plus small group study guides.  Where is […]

The New Age & Hitler’s Germany: Wash, Rinse, Smile, Repeat

Today we’re bringing up some oldies but not-so-goodies. You may hear the names Oprah Winfrey, Rodney Howard Browne or Neil Donald Walsch and think, “Oh sure, SUFTT, we know they’re New Age. Nothing new to see here.” But wait. What’s old news is new news again, especially when the fringes become mainstream. And when God […]

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 […]

Anti-Israel Radicals, Evangelical-Style

“When one considers that Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, Bob Roberts Jr., Shane Claiborne and Ed Stetzer are helping to mainstream rapprochement with Islam (my view of the situation), it follows that those they mentor are doing likewise.” The following is posted by Jim Fletcher over at Rapture Ready: In a recent editorial in Commentary, the […]

Painful lessons for states and churches

“Gender is not assigned at birth, it is recognized at birth,” says our guest today.  School boards in state after state in our union are making decisions about transgender policies that are based on a lie: That we can choose whichever gender we like, regardless of who God created us to be.  Thirty-three states now […]

Preparing for Challenging Times

Since we last talked about a surge in the one-world religion/one-world government the Bible tells us will happen, there have been some big developments: A convergence of 14 world religions – the latest hand-holding religious summit between Rome and evangelical, Mormon, Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh leaders, at the Vatican in Rome.  (See, What do Rick Warren, […]
