What in the world…

Should Christians hope for world peace? We know in our Bible Jesus spoke of wars and rumors of war in the last days, and we also know there will be a false peace on earth. What is happening in our world today? On Monday, President Obama prepared for his trip to the Middle East by […]

Salt Shakers

Is the Church losing its salt?

Have you heard of a movement called Christian Reconstructionism? It goes by another name: Theonomy, or Rule by God’s law. It’s a kind of Dominion theology that is not the same as the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) dominionism. Confused yet? We’ll cover what this movement is all about later on. First, what does it mean […]

Brian McLaren crossed the road…

Post-modern liberalism in the Body of Christ is what gives the Emergent Church theology its wings. It helps you toss along the waves of uncertainty; question what God said is Truth.  A few weeks ago we reported the many ways in which the Church is emerging into a New kind of Spirituality, one that brings […]

Is the Church submerging?

Is the Church submerging?

The Bible warns us about a great delusion that will take place prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself wants to warn us so that we will be prepared, and said that many of us will fall away.  Is that delusion already underway in our Body of Christ today? We’ve talked about […]

Whom Will You Choose to Follow?

Today we introduced you briefly to a pastor by the name of Steven Furtick.  He is the rising star of the Emergent Church Movement, seemingly replacing Rob Bell as the darling of the movement.  He is bold, brash and becoming controversial for what he teaches and how he teaches it. Furtick pastors the newest mega-church […]

Fat, Apathetic Christianity?

Fat, Apathetic Christianity?

Apathetic Christianity is a real disease infecting the Body of Christ.  And it is infecting us in several ways. First, our Christian faith has become something that is incomplete these days.  We come to accept Jesus as our Savior and Lord and think the race is complete.  But becoming a Christian is not the end […]

Resolve To Know God in 2012

I saw a study that projects nearly 100 million Americans would make 2012 New Year’s resolutions and that by the end of January, nearly 90% would walk away from that resolution.  So how are you doing and just what was your resolution this year?  I might suggest that if your primary resolution was anything short […]

Truth and alignment: What do we rally 'round?

Truth and alignment: What do we rally 'round?

Today we continue dissecting the Christian Universalist Movement, and its theology that is gaining popularity and strength with Christian book authors (like The Shack), writers, speakers and popular pastors (like Rob Bell). Could you be absorbing some of these ideas without even knowing it? And in our first segment we check in with  Julaine Appling […]

"The Shack"--enter or steer clear?

"The Shack"–enter or steer clear?

I remember when “The Shack” first came out—it seemed every Christian I knew was reading it.  A friend gave me a copy and encouraged me to read it.  As I started I just didn’t feel right about how the author was portraying God and I stopped reading it. I saw my friend who gave me […]

The Lines Are Being Drawn

2011 has indeed been an interesting year to be a Christian.  From the controversial teachings of Rob Bell, to the so called “Arab Spring”, to the ill-advised predictions of Harold Camping, it has been a fascinating year.  And through it all, I believe God is continuing to implement the separation of His sheep from the […]

The Titanic–Patch the Hole or Abandon Ship?

Romans Chapter One says it all in the circumstances the world finds itself in these latter days.  The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness.  For although they knew God, they neither glorified God nor gave him thanks.  They […]

Jezebel in The Church

There is a great seduction going on—one that is very dangerous and we need to wake up to it quickly.  The Church in America seems to be under the spell of a modern day Jezebel.  She is seducing us into a false sense of what it means to be a Christian. She is whispering in […]
