Seven Reasons 1 Timothy 2:12 Isn’t the Crazy Aunt We Hide in the Closet when Company Comes Over

Michelle Lesley

A while back I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and happened to catch part of an interaction between two women discussing a false teacher. I couldn’t come close to the exact wording if I tried, but the gist of it was…

Discerning Christian Woman: Divangelista X is a false teacher and preaches to men.

Non-Discerning Christian(?) Woman: How can you say she shouldn’t be preaching to men? So what! She’s out there helping so many people and charitable causes! People love her! I think she’s great!

Discerning Christian Woman: Well, I’m really not as concerned about the fact that she preaches to men as I am about the false doctrine she teaches.

I didn’t butt in because neither of them was talking to me, but what I wanted to say was, “Why?” Why, Discerning Christian Woman, did you back off the completely biblically valid…

Google now censoring conservative news, while giving leftist propaganda a free pass

WINTERY KNIGHT

Google's new motto Google’s new motto: be evil

Google is a radically leftist company that fires employees (e.g. – James Damore) who step outside of progressive dogma. And now they’re promoting leftist causes in their search engine – by censoring conservative news sources.

The Daily Caller explains:

Google, the most powerful search engine in the world, is now displaying fact checks for conservative publications in its results.
No prominent liberal site receives the same treatment.

And not only is Google’s fact-checking highly partisan — perhaps reflecting the sentiments of its leaders — it is also blatantly wrong, asserting sites made “claims” they demonstrably never made.

Here’s an example of the fact-checking that Google does:

The Robert Mueller fact check (pictured above) is a case in point for Google’s new feature.

Ostensibly trying to sum up the crux of the post, the third-party “fact-checking” organization says the “claim” in a DC article that special Counsel Robert Mueller is hiring people that…

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Matthew 7:15-18 (NKJV) 

Who can we trust? I have been in many separate discussions with friends over that last several weeks and months pertaining to the seeming escalation of growing apostasy all around us. Some have lamented that it seems that there is no one who can be trusted anymore. I made the commen several nights ago to a friend that it was becoming increasingly more difficult to trust the fruit of those who minister for money or whose livelihood…

Damage control: Bethel Church’s statement about the ‘Christian Tarot card’ controversy leaves many questions unanswered.

Holly Pivec from “Spirit of Error” raises some great points about the relationship  between Bethel and Christalignment in her latest article. Holly is the co-author of New Apostolic Reformation?: A Biblical Response to a Worldwide Movement and God’s Super-Apostles: Encountering the Worldwide Prophets and Apostles Movement. She has a master’s degree in Christian apologetics from Biola University.


Holly writes:

Bethel Church in Redding, California, last week, responded to the “Christian Tarot card” controversy that has created a buzz in the Christian media.

Apparently, church leaders could no longer ignore reports that people closely associated with the church — including students from their school — have used the controversial decks of cards known as Destiny Cards. And members of their pastoral staff have defended the use of the cards. One, Theresa Dedmon, even developed her own set of Destiny Cards. These reports seem to have damaged Bethel’s reputation given the…

Toronto Blessing & Pensacola Outpouring failed end-times prophetic revivals?

Back in the day, it was continually claimed by leaders (particularly Dr Michael Brown), that the Toronto Blessing and the Pensacola Outpuring (aka Brownsville Revival) were not connected in anyway. In this article we let their own Apostles and followers tell the truth neglected by New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) Apostles like Dr Michael Brown.

We’ve documented this all before from another source also worth looking at.

David Yonggi Cho and Ken Sumrall’s “prophecy” over Pensacola

Older prophecies explain why these revivals were meant to occur, demonstrating how cult-like they are. Can anyone now claim that the Toronto Blessing and Pensacola Outpouring triggered Christ’s return and changed the nations for the glory of God? Why would Michael Brown want this failed prophetic end-times revival on his resume?


It is worth noting that ‘soothsayer’ David Yonggi Cho prophesied that the Brownsville Revival will continue until Jesus Christ returns:

“Brother Kilpatrick just asked before…

Is your church part of Houston’s NARpostolic Australian ‘Christian Churches’ (ACC) network?

If you think you are in a Christian or Pentecostal church in Australia – think again.

There is a VERY high possibility you are involved in a New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) center. What is the NAR? It is an international cult based on relational networks that has its roots in the New Order of the Latter Rain (NOLR) cult. The NOLR was a restorationist cult that pushed a false spirit, false Jesus, false gospel, false ecclesiology, false eschatology and false anthropology. The Pentecostal AOG denomination condemned this movement as heretical back in 1949.

However, Frank Houston, (founder of Hillsong church), was heavily influenced by the Latter Rain cult teacher, William Branham, while he was in New Zealand and implemented the NOLR New Apostolic structure in the AOG denominations. NAR Apostle David Cartledge wrote how this ‘New Move’ was synonymous with the Charismatic Renewal Movement (CRM), Frank Houston considered…

Heresy Hunters Guide (Part 1): Why God has called Christians to be ‘Heresy Hunters’.

Christians are called to love Jesus the way he asked us to:

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments.” John 14:15

Sadly, not only do many Christians neglect this command in the church today, the results of ignoring Jesus’ Words regarding false teachers has spiritual consequences:

  1. Unloving towards both God and neighbour;
  2. Exposing the church to more apostacy;
  3. Representing a bad witness to a lost and dying world;
  4. Spiritually harming many people in the church and in the community;
  5. Watering down and complicating the simplicity of the gospel and the Christian confession of faith;
  6. Making evangelism harder regarding new converts finding safe churches where the gospel is not tainted by false teaching or associated with false teachers.

It seems many choose to turn a deaf ear to Paul’s warning:

“I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from…

Strong Delusion: We Are Seeing the Deception of the Masses Even Now

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

Coming from an ultra-liberal Jewish family, I am seeing first hand how easily the evil one can seduce and capture the minds of the unsaved.

In order for me (or any of us) to be used by the Lord to bring His truth into the lives of liberal friends and family, we must love them as Jesus loves them. We must also tell them “truth” as Jesus told Truth.  And our Jesus was not always tactful as we read of Him calling the Pharisees “You hypocrites!

Jesus IS the Truth.

 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”  (John 14:6).

The Leftwing Media Becomes Their god

If you engage in conversation on a regular basis with a liberal, then surely you have listened as they parrot back what they have heard on CNN, MSNBC and…

Resources on Depression and the Christian

The End Time

depressed
Depression is something Christians don’t talk about much. Some are embarrassed by it, deeming it a weakness. Others believe that they are supposed to present a joyful countenance all the time, every day. Others adopt a plan of fake it till you make it.

So I was surprised and heartened to read Drew Dyck’s heartfelt sharing of his own journey through a long-term depression which was also punctuated by panic attacks. Mr Dyck is an acquisitions editor at Moody Publishers and a senior editor at CTPastors.com. He’s the author of Yawning at Tigers (2014) and Generation Ex: Christian (2010).

It’s always risky when one is open about something that some parts of society stigmatize. He muses on some of that in his article, as he shares the lessons he’d learned. His article is here:

Bethel: Stretching the truth with… Destiny Pants?

Recently, Bethel Pastor and Christalignment tarot reader extraordinaire, Theresa Dedmon, came out in defense of Destiny (tarot) card readings.

Another Bethel pastor defends the occult practices of Jen Hodge and Christalignm

Many Christians are rightly exposing Dedmon’s bible twisting to justify her occultic tarot card practices. Her bizarre meanderings in defense of her Destiny Card divination practices are just as frivolous as her… Destiny Pants?

Theresa Dedmon


DESTINY PANTS
Does your fashion release the “love of God?” Do your pants enhance “awareness of God’s presence” or give people “heavenly encounters?” If your clothes are not doing this, then you need Theresa Dedmon’s ‘Destiny Pants’. Just like Destiny Cards give people encounters of the God kind, so too does Dedmon’s prophetic ‘Destiny Pants’ yoga leggings.

Theresa Dedmon writes,

“My fashion designs embody the prophetic art they are created from. Wearing my art enhances your awareness of God’s presence, and helps you become…

Brown muddies the waters – damaging James White’s reputation?

Dr James White is in serious damage control after his recent program featuring NAR Apostle Michael Brown. At the bottom of this article, you can see further evidence of this on his Facebook page.

What happens to White when Brown hits the fan.

James White has refused to factually address the evidence presented to him about Michael Brown’s involvement in the NAR (as a NAR Apostle) and Brown’s NAR theological heresies. Here is the documented evidence of Michael Brown lying about his involvement in the NAR. We encourage you to compare these links to the accusations of James White and Michael Brown. The evidence speaks for itself:

What worldview does the maker of Star Wars movies want you to accept?

WINTERY KNIGHT

Lets take a closer look at a puzzle Lets take a closer look at a puzzle

I heard that there was a new Star Wars movie out, and that many of my Christian friends were going to see it. I passed on it, because there is something about that whole series that is creepy to me.

It looks like my concerns have some justification. I noticed a couple of reviews of the movie from Come Reason Ministries and Bnonn Tennant.

Here are 3 points that Lenny makes at Come Reason: (H/T Brian)

  1. Faith and tradition are disposable
  2. You don’t really need to put in years of work to be competent
  3. Men are inconsequential

All three points he makes seem to me to be exactly what the movie communicates, but I want to focus on point #3:

The most obvious message The Last Jedi sends is the one that Johnson clearly sought to send, that is that men offer nothing…
