We will recognize them by their fruits

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

15 “Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17 So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. (Matthew 7:15-18 NASB)

Those with any discernment are aware of the rising escalation of growing apostasy all around us. Some of you have lamented that it seems that there is no one who can be trusted anymore. I hear you! It has become apparent that it is becoming increasingly more difficult to trust the fruit of those who minister for money or whose livelihood depended upon popularity. This is really nothing new. Our Lord, in His Sermon on the…

Professor explains how his study of the historical Jesus made him leave atheism

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson Sherlock Holmes and John Watson: let’s investigate Jesus!

Dr. Michael F. Bird has a great article in Christianity Today. I’ve featured his debates with atheist historican James Crossley on this blog before, and I have the book they co-wrote.

In the article, Dr. Bird writes:

I grew up in a secular home in suburban Australia, where religion was categorically rejected—it was seen as a crutch, and people of faith were derided as morally deviant hypocrites. Rates for church attendance in Australia are some of the lowest in the Western world, and the country’s political leaders feel no need to feign religious devotion. In fact, they think it’s better to avoid religion altogether.

As a teenager, I wrote poetry mocking belief in God. My mother threw enough profanity at religious door knockers to make even a sailor blush.

Many years later, however, I read the New Testament for myself. The…

One college administrator who refuses to bow down to the #crybully mob

Two people send me the following article by a conservative college President with balls of steel. (H/T Benoy and Scott)

Excerpt:

This is Not a Day Care. It’s a University!

Dr. Everett Piper, President

Oklahoma Wesleyan University

This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt “victimized” by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13. It appears that this young scholar felt offended because a homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love! In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable.

I’m not making this up. Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic! Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims! Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them “feel bad” about themselves, is a…

Why Liberal Atheists Defend Islam

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

allah-is-satanAfter reading article after article on this subject, a breakthrough came today, and it was from the Word of God. Why did I not search there first?

I have racked my brain for years, trying to figure out why atheists and far-left liberals support Islam and even push educating our children in public schools about the “Religion of Peace.” The videos of beheadings and mass executions do not affect them. And obviously, their tiresome mantra “Separation of Church and State” doesn’t apply to Islam.

In my articles about Islam, I have said that I believe that Allah is Satan. I also believe that the Islamic jihadists are demon possessed. There are approximately 1.6 billion Muslims on our planet. A little over 300 million of them are jihadists and want us dead.

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light…

Is it Okay to Murder Safely?

The Domain for Truth

FB_IMG_1448504475493

This is an example (Focus on the Family) of the horrendous errors concerning some in the pro-life movement. There is no solemn statement concerning the killing or the sin of abortion as being murder. Where is the message of repentence, true faith, sexual immorality, and the clear and uncompromising Gospel message? Where is the heightened sensitivity of the baby who is the victim due to their parents’ destructive and immoral choice? I encourage Christians to also research the different pregnancy crisis centers in their communities before fully supporting and financially backing them. Inquire to see if they also do biblical counseling.

Focus on the Family is basically telling people how to safely murder someone in the womb. Parents are not terminating a pregnancy, they are terminating a precious life, made in God’s image.

Have they forgotten Exodus 20:13? Why would you give one an option to kill innocent life, when…
