Pope Completely Casts Scripture Aside, Lies to Young Boy About God

Pulpit & Pen has been exposing George Soros’ funding and partnership of Russell Moore and James Riady’s funding of Ligon Duncan. In reality, both Soros and Duncan have been funding numerous groups and speakers who are represented at the The Gospel Coalition, Together for the Gospel, and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. However, much of their funding is “Dark Money,” contributions that come not directly from Soros or Riady, but from a series of “foundations” (sometimes the cash goes through nearly a dozen foundations before it reaches places like SBTS, TGC, the ERLC or RTS).
Watch this incredible video which helps demonstrate how the cash-flow from Globalist-Marxist forces is used to “rent” evangelicals to push their agenda.
Please keep in mind that Jim Wallis is a political ally of Russell Moore, with the two regularly appearing together at partnering together on the Soros-Funded Evangelical Immigration Table.
The money is dark, but we intend to keep shedding light on it.

San Francisco Church to Hold “Beyoncé Mass”

This video is well worth the watch. Yes, this is a longer video, but Voddie Baucham knocks the commonly taught philosophy that Christians must become part of the culture to influence the culture. Voddie explains that it is not only ineffective to do this, but is a sin. In truth when we are raising the needs or wants of…
It’s no secret that the Communist Party intentionally infiltrated the so-called “black church” (an abominable term indeed, in a Biblical worldview that refuses to view people through a racial construct, which is forbidden in places like Galatians 3:28, Romans 3:29, Colossians 3:11) during the Civil Rights Movement. This historic reality has been written about in no shortage of academic journals, dissertations, and books from both that time period and beyond, with the Communist Party USA boldly and publicly proclaiming their influence in the “black church” to have been pivotal to their success. With the Marxist invention of Liberation Theology, combined with the tenets of Rauschenbuschism social gospel, foreign globalist forces were able to successfully change the trajectory of many once-solid, vibrant and thriving churches comprised primarily of people of color. The consequences of adding Liberation Theology and the social gospel to those churches is on full display before us, and the results are nothing less than tragic. What is less known is that globalist and Marxist billionaire financiers are continuing to influence American religion in the desire of changing American politics, although this time – with the “black church” in left in a historical heap behind them, they have chosen a new stream of evangelical thought through which to push their purely political agenda.
Seeing the rising Reformed Resurgence and its massive influence in evangelicalism – of which people like myself are debtors (I am a 5-point Calvinist and my church confession is the 1689 London Baptist Confession) – globalist strategical thinkers saw a unique opportunity to capitalize (pun intended) on co-opting and commandeering a movement that, if they could turn it political, might turn the tide of America toward their progressive plans. It is no secret that evangelical America is the last remaining demographic standing between the preservation of American culture and globalist progressivism. If that demographic could be changed or swayed, then the victory of the American left – and by vicarious accomplishment, international globalism – would be all be assured. The margins between the left and right are so tight, any subtle shift in traditionally conservative American thought would result in the largest paradigm shift of political power in American history.
It is no mistake, as Pulpit & Pen has thoroughly covered, evangelical “thought leaders” among the pseudo-Reformed camp known as “New Calvinism” have been the financial recipients of millions of dollars from globalist and Marxist financiers, George Soros and James Riady. With Soros funding Russell Moore and Matt Chandler’s Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT) – an organization actually belonging to Soros himself – and with James Riady funding Westminster Philadelphia, Reformed Theological Seminary (RTS) and Ligon Duncan, and other religious institutions like Biola University and Ouachita Baptist University, it should be apparent that some kind of quid pro quo exists. Riady’s influence in particular is far and wide in American religious institutions, and particular among New Calvinists, and the gobs of cash he’s giving them is reportedly surpassing unheard of levels. And in spite of Riady being known primarily as the head of corruption during the Clinton Campaign Finance Scandal, in spite of him being kicked out of the country for trying to affect American politics with piles of international cash, and in spite of Riady still funding the Clinton Global Initiative and the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, leaders like Ligon Duncan still readily receive his cash, the Gospel Coalition promotes his Indonesian school on the cyber-pages of their blog, and his wife and children still speak at New Calvinist institutions in the place of their father, who cannot return to the country.
Make no mistake about it, the Evangelical Intelligentsia – which we have defined here – are well-funded by foreign political interests. In the name of “repentance,” these evangelical leaders are promoting purely Marxist ideological inventions like Critical Race Theory, White Guilt, Intersectionality, and Cultural Marxism during 2018’s White Guilt and Gospel-Redefinition Apology Tour that took place last week at Together for the Gospel and the week before that, the MLK50 event hosted by The Gospel Coalition and the ERLC. It’s not conspiracy theory; it’s conspiracy facts. Consult the hyper-links provided and see the primary sources with your own eyes. The fact is that these evangelical leaders who all suddenly, mysteriously, and with suspiciously coordinated timing who came to “repentance” on the issue of race (proposing the social gospel, which they have renamed “social justice”) have taken money from Soros and Riady. It is up to your gullible, incredibly naive judgment if you choose to determine that Soros and Riady are simultaneously funding a globalist-Marxist strategy worldwide while funding a certain stream of American religious thought out of the contriteness of their heart.
In the meantime, these same evangelical “thought leaders” – aka the Evangelical Intelligentsia (EI) – have gathered at Wheaton College to discuss how to shift evangelicals away from supporting conservative politics in the name of “saving evangelicalism.” Yesterday and today – April 16 and April 17, 2018 – these leaders are in a closed-door meeting that according to the Washington Post was organized by avowed Marxist and Gospel Coalition co-founder, Tim Keller. Approximately 50 such leaders from the EI are discussing the best ways to shift evangelicals away from supporting conservatism, and they include Keller, Ed Stetzer, A.R. Bernard (the pastor who very publicly resigned from Trump’s faith advisory panel over Trump’s lack of political correctness following the Charlottesville race riot), Doug Birdsall (an honorary chair of the rabidly globalist and pro-Roman Catholic Lausanne Committee for World Evangelization, which you can read about in E.S. William’s book, here), Jenny Yang of World Relief (which signed a public statement condemning President Trump over his enforcement of U.S. immigration law regarding the “Dreamers”) Bishop Claude Alexander (who signed a letter from evangelicals condemning Trump, using the ideology of Critical Race Theory to do so), Mark Labberton of Fuller Seminary (who wrote a book, Still Evangelical?, which is a collection of essays encouraging evangelicals to abandon their title for the sake of not alienating the political left), Jo Anne Lyon of the Wesleyan Church (who is a part of Evangelicals for Social Action, along with other progressives like Rachel Held Evans), and Gabriel Salguero of the National Latino Evangelical Association (who, as you would expect, has written articles in places like the New York Times encouraging evangelicals to go politically left if they desire to coalesce with Hispanic believers).
Absent from this meeting of 50 progressive evangelical believers – and notably so – are evangelical conservatives. As OneNewsNow reported, conservatives are “personae non gratae” at the event. When asked by the Christian Post why leaders like Franklin Graham and Robert Jeffress were not invited, an event organizer said, “I don’t think they are globally perceived as evangelical thought leaders by virtue of what they have written or by virtue of the values that are reflected in their public statements.”
In other words, conservatives need not imply. To be a “thought leader” to the Evangelical Intelligentsia, you must be a globalist and a political progressive. Any less is perceived as being sub-intellectual.
While Tim Keller and the elites at Wheaton are advertising their event as a way to “save evangelicalism” from politics, they are betraying the public by the omission of the fact that they are all – all of them, as the list we’ve cited above demonstrates – fully devoted to a hostile takeover of American politics. This is not an evangelical event at Wheaton; this is a political event. Their goal is not to save evangelicalism, but to form a brain trust by which they steer evangelicalism to the left. The lie is a sinister one, and it’s that they’re politically disinterested. Keller and company are not politically disinterested and they are not politically disinvested. And while Graham and Jeffress are certainly “political,” they are no less political than the globalist and Marxist political activists who have gathered to discuss how to affect political change in evangelicalism.

Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry – Normalizing Mysticism
Apr 16, 2018 09:50 am | Marsha West
Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry is nothing of the sort. It’s a sham. Just a way Bethel Church leaders have devised to get their hooks into people, especially undiscerning young people. If you’re unfamiliar with Bethel Church in Redding CA, the senior pastor is the notorious “Apostle” Bill Johnson. For reasons that will become clear, Bethel’s considered […]

I’m old enough to remember when “evangelical” was a bad word
Apr 13, 2018 10:05 am | Marsha West
According to Jesse Johnson “evangelical suffers from an ambiguity largely owning to its diversity. The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) is different than the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, yet members of both would sign the Manhattan Declaration. If you believe the gospel and the fundamentals (inerrancy, virgin birth, bodily resurrection, personal conversion, etc.), does that make you evangelical? There is […]

What Christian Leaders Need to Know – The Final Outcome of Practicing Contemplative Prayer LTRP Note: With the majority of Christian colleges and seminaries now bringing in contemplative spirituality via Spiritual Formation programs, and with Christian leaders such as Rick Warren and Beth Moore endorsing the movement, and with countless pastors giving it a thumbs…
“He was a good man … he had a good heart” … “God surely was proud of your father” said the pope to the tearful little boy. Was the boy’s father a good man as the pope claimed? According to Romans 3:10: “None is righteous, no, not one.” What does the Bible teach on salvation? “If…
As believers in Christ, having the Holy Spirit indwelling us; we should be able to discern spiritual matters. Why is it then that so many of the church are easily deceived? Later on in this piece, I will speak of the need for brothers and sisters in Christ to learn to discern the News presented to us as truth, but is not.
A case in point: I met a woman who is a friend of my sister’s and the woman is a believer. She talks about the Lord a lot, and about His Word. She attends a Baptist church near her home, and my sister has even gone to church with her.
One day she texted me that she was so excited because the women from church were beginning a study from a book written by Beth Moore. I stared at the text for a minute and thought…

What offering strange fire leads to
In October 2013, as part of the Truth Matters series, John MacArthur and a host of men such as Steve Lawson, Tom Pennington, RC Sproul, Justin Peters, and others participated in the Strange Fire conference. It was named Strange Fire from the verse in Leviticus 10:1.
The first tabernacle had been erected, and Aaron was doing a lot of sacrificing per God’s instructions (Leviticus 8—9). One day, two of Aaron’s sons, Nadab and Abihu, came along and offered incense with ‘strange fire’. The Hebrew word translated “strange” means “unauthorized, foreign, or profane.” God not only rejected their sacrifice; He found it so offensive that He consumed the two men with fire. (Source)

FLAWED PROCESS, WOUNDED WOMEN
April 12, 2018
My name is Nancy Ortberg. I served on the Board of the Willow Creek Association and served on staff at Willow Creek Community Church for nine years. I would like to make clear why, after Bill Hybels’ accelerated retirement, I remain deeply concerned about the process and church governance that brought us all to this point, as well as the stories of the women who have spoken up.

How do Christians overcome fear against radical Islam’s agenda enough to love and reach out to Muslims in our communities and share the true Gospel of salvation and eternal life? This is just one of the topics our listeners want to discuss on today’s show.
Throughout the week, many of you podcast listeners write in with comments and questions. Each week, we take a few and address them on air. With everything you hear, always take it to the Word of God as it is our only source for wisdom and truth.
Today’s topics include:
Is political involvement futile?
Can believers hear the Voice of God?
The attack on biblical manhood.
Is the local church our greatest mission field in sharing the full gospel?
Daily podcast, relevant articles on issues pertaining to Christians and more can be found on Stand Up For The Truth.
The Bible clearly warns us that as we approach the time of the Lord’s return that things would get worse and worse. Sin and evil will grow and the attacks on God, His Word and His Church would be magnified.
We had better understand this new reality.
Christianity was once the norm in our society; now it is becoming increasingly hated, scorned and attacked.
In our final segment this morning we look at public allegations against Pastor Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Church, alleging sexual misconduct and improprieties. Are the charges warranted or fabricated to further disgrace the Christian Church in America?
But first we talk with author and Christian Apologist John Stewart about his latest book “In Defense of the Gospels: The Case for Reliability”. How can we defend the authenticity and truth of the gospel against the growing chorus of attacks, reaching the lost with the hope of eternal life with God?

For all their bluster about hating bullying the far left in our nation has become the masters of bullying and intimidation. They espouse freedom of speech and expression…as long as your views line up with their views. We are seeing a focused targeting of free speech in our nation and the primary target is bible-believing Christians who dare oppose the left’s march toward globalism and control.
Brannon Howse, founder of World View Weekend, experienced this intimidation and bullying first hand last week. Two scheduled conferences in Wisconsin were shut down when left-wing organizations conducted a coordinated effort to intimidate the venues that were to host Brannon’s conferences, forcing them to cancel the events at a tremendous cost. This morning we talk with Brannon as we see this increased intimidation and bullying against Christians.
In our first segment, Jay Seegert of The Starting Point Project joins us to discuss the attacks against the Bible’s integrity and accuracy.

“Situational Ethics” seems to be the standard by which the world is evolving. No longer is there a strong sense of absolute right or wrong; rather people of the world simply decide what is “right” based on their own personal preference and situation. The final verses of The Book of Judges summarizes us perfectly as a society: “In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25)
A society cannot survive long when there is no righteous standard of ethics and morality. Is our nation on the cusp of moral and ethical anarchy? And how will we as the church respond as morality crumbles?
Dave Wager of Silver Birch Ranch and Nicolet Bible Institute joins us to discuss Christian ethics and morality in a nation that is ushering God and His Word out the door.
Christian films are generally money-makers. Why do you think this is? A lot of people are tired of the trashy, godless, profane products Hollywood typically puts out. Numbers indicate there’s an enormous audience across the country desperate for clean, positive, redemptive, God-centered entertainment.
It doesn’t add up. What does Hollywood love more than money?
In case you haven’t noticed, the world is changing, and as the Word of God warns us, not for the better. The blatant attacks on God’s Word and His people are increasing in frequency and severity. Around the world, thousands of Christians are being rounded up, imprisoned and even martyred for Jesus Christ. And here in America we are seeing increasingly open discrimination against the religious freedom and rights of Christians.
We are blessed to have two special guests on-air today as we address this issue on two fronts. In our first segment we are joined by Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute to look at increased discrimination against Christian churches, businesses and individuals—and how we can fight back. Next, we check in with Tim Chaffey of Midwest Apologetics, as we look at the importance of Christian Homeschooling as our public education system continues to deteriorate and push an anti-Christian, humanist agenda on America’s children.
Coming up: a new Wisconsin Homeschool conference near Milwaukee, April 20-21
In this amazing interview, Costi Hinn exposes that the ministry of his uncle Benny is completely fraudulent. There are no miracles being done, no healings, nothing is happening by getting people to give them as much of their money as possible.
“For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.” Acts 20:29,30 (KJV)
For years now, we have published articles on the false teachers and Laodicean phonies that comprise the ludicrous Prosperity Gospel movement. In addition to attempting to conjure up fake miracles and lying wonders, they also teach that if you want to be rich then give your money to them. Want a little of God’s blessing? Then send in $100. Want a lot of God’s blessing, then send in a thousand…or two.
Prosperity con artists in this category include Paula White, Kenneth Copeland, Rod Parsley, Todd Bentley, Creflo Dollar and, of course, the penultimate phony of them all Benny Hinn. These people have swindled billions of dollars from gullible, Bible deficient Christians who allow themselves to be fooled by promises of ‘health and wealth’ if only your will send in your ‘tithe” to them.
As we have published these stories over the years, many of the followers of these con artists have written in to us, demanding that we “touch not God’s anointed” and retract our statements exposing their fraudulent activities. So today we are excited to show you the nephew of Benny Hinn, Costi Hinn, in a detailed interview exposing both the greed of his con artist uncle Benny, as well as exposing the fraud that is the charismatic Prosperity Gospel. If you are reading this via email, please click here to watch this video of the Costi Hinn interview.
In this amazing interview, Costi Hinn exposes that the ministry of his uncle Benny is completely fraudulent. He admits there are no miracles being done, no healings, nothing is happening other than getting people to give them as much of their money as possible.
To his credit, Costi Hinn explains how the Lord got a hold of him and convicted him of these scams and con games, and Costi shares how he repented of that and decided to preach the true gospel of the grace of God. It came with a cost however, as uncle Benny and the entire Hinn clan have shunned him and made him an outcast.
Listen as Costi reveals the unbelievably lavish lifestyle of the Hinn Ministry team, a lifestyle that he freely admits it’s one that the people who send them the money will never experience. After all, the only people who prosper with the false Prosperity Gospel are the people who run it, and their families.
Still not convinced that Benny Hinn and the Word Faith Movement aren’t phonies?
Click to watch as Benny Hinn says he received a ‘word of knowledge’ promising him that Jesus Christ would appear with him on the stage…physically. The person who gave him that ‘word of knowledge’ said she heard the ‘audible voice of Jesus’ tell her that.
“The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?” Jeremiah 5:31 (KJV)
If you would like to read through our series on the end times deception currently taking place, here are the links:
The end times deception that’s taking place is very real and very dangerous. If you see this stuff happening in your church, get out and get out fast. It doesn’t matter if someone has been saved for 50 years or served as a pastor for 20 years, you are only right until you aren’t right any more. Length of time being saved or being in ministry is never a factor as to whether or not you are teaching truth or error. We hope this series will be an eye-opening blessing to you.
