“He that takes truth for his guide, and duty for his end, may safely trust to God’s providence to lead him aright.” – Blaise Pascal. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
Do Not Be Surprised…This ‘n’ That (24 January 2014)
Speaking of Luther, did he really endorse “bar” music for the church?
If you frequent “discernment” blogs, then you no doubt saw the uproar over the Linger Conference and presence of The Master’s College there as an exhibitor. Executive Director of Grace to You, Phil Johnson, received a barrage of questions about this even though he has no personal involvement with the college. I appreciated his response to these questions as recorded here. I also was happy to see, though, that TMC withdrew as an exhibitor at this bizarre-sounding event.
I urge you to read this lengthy article from Rolling Stone magazine (yes, I’m serious). It shares the story of Tyler Deaton, a man who led a small cult within the cult of IHOP, and of his murdered wife, Bethany.
You have to see these pictures of unborn animals in the womb.
Has it only been 20 years since the inception of the Toronto Blessing? Yes, 20 years of deceptive, damning doctrine that continues to be taught and disseminated throughout the visible church.
Ever notice how all of these man-generated revivals (think Passion, Code Orange and others) all talk about how the Holy Spirit is going to “show up” at their event? Wouldn’t it be embarrassing if He didn’t? I mean, what if the Holy Spirit is double-booked that weekend?
