These days some of the most popular television shows and […]

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 […]

Why we “Mark and Avoid”

There is a growing trend to dismiss the Bible in a world that says, “you can’t believe a book that’s a couple thousand years old,” as Rob Bell has done. Bell recently made these statements and said that the Church is very close to embracing gay marriage. If you haven’t boldly marked false teachers, people […]

Petting Wolves

Let’s stop petting the wolves

No matter how much love and humility a Berean has, they tend to take a lot of arrows from their own when contending.  Many times when those who stand firm in God’s Word as truth are told they have a critical spirit, it is because we have stepped on the tender toes of a teacher […]

Discern fork in the road

The lost art of discernment

Many people ask us, “why do you need to warn people about these false teachers? What if you just focused on what you are for, and just on Jesus?” But Jesus told us to discern, and the Bible also says we need to be aware of the schemes of the enemy. Today we’re talking about […]

Rob Bell is back, rethinking the Bible

“A growing numbers are asking whether their reading has become too rigid, too simplistic and too alienating.” That’s the intro to a new Orange County Register article titled: Rethinking the Bible: A reassessment among some evangelicals. Here is an excerpt: What is the Bible? It’s a straightforward question. But for Christians these days, it turns out […]

Essy, a mystical witch, teaches viewers how to conjure up the Spirit of Air in a ritual circle

Now Oprah viewers can meet a witch, practice a ritual circle

Let me start by saying that Christians LOVE the sticky mess that Soul Pancake and Oprah are. The biggest Emergent leadership conference, Catalyst, hosted Soul Pancake creator Rainn Wilson recently so that young upcoming leaders could incorporate this mind-boggling spirituality into their Christian teachings. And we reported last year that Oprah Winfrey’s anything-goes “Soul Pancake” […]

It’s part of a progressive theology that imagines a very different Jesus, and we’re going to cover a new article today by Red Letter Christians titled, 4 Reasons Jesus […]

Wealth, pride and betting on the wrong horse

How do you share the Gospel with people who put their hope in status, riches and pleasure? (Matthew 19:16-26) If you want to understand the mindset of the wealthy, you need to go where they are with what they need. What they think they need is blessings that look like success. Today we are talking […]

Gay-Affirming Churches: The stats and the movement

Keep in mind that they are targeting NOT the churches already gay-affirming, but those who are holding fast […]
