Fear-Mongering Chuck Norris

Fear-mongers turn me off period, but especially when the fear-mongering comes through well known celebrities looking to influence Christians. It actually causes me to never look at the celebrity the same again: When I see them, I automatically feel disgust, even years later.  Fear of this type is not of God folks, its a tool […]

Wonder What God Thinks….

Wonder what God thinks about people manipulating and misusing His word for political purposes?   Yesterday, NPR’s “Morning Edition” ran a story about the practice, especially among conservatives, to use Biblical passages as justification for their right-wing economic agenda; What would Jesus do with the U.S. economy? That’s a matter of fierce debate among Christians […]

The power of the new media to manipulate & evangelicalism’s fundamental authority problem

The title may be a mouthful, but does raise some interesting issues. If you are a follower of Christ and are reading this (an internet user) then these issues do and will continue to affect you. Personally, I made the choice a couple years ago not to be swayed by the authoritative opinions made by […]

Christians: Political Propoganda & Lies

Been catching up on some reading today and came across this article. I can vouch for many of the statements the author (R. Brad White) makes as being true. Most days my mailbox is swamped with letters (marked “urgent”) from so-called Christian organizations, filled with half baked truths and most of the time, out right […]

CNN interview about Bishop Long yeilds painful surprise

Pastor Foster at GCM Watch has posted a video clip in which  CNN news anchor Don Lemon made an interesting observation based on his own personal experience,  concerning the accusations made by the young men against Eddie Long.

Misinterpreting Scripture (Genesis 12:3)

Every Christian would agree that the misinterpretation of scripture[s] is the source of most, if not all, false doctrines and teachings. That is not to imply that we have to have our ducks-in-a-row 100% concerning all scripture–for, as long as we’re here on earth, we’ll be constantly learning and receiving revelation concerning God’s Word. It’s […]

Guyana’s Jonestown suicide site gets plaque

It has taken more than 30 years, but the government of Guyana has erected a memorial plaque at the site of the Jonestown cult massacre, a dark episode the South American country had long sought to downplay. A simple, white stone plaque was unveiled with little fanfare Wednesday at the jungle clearing where more than […]

Rick Wiles Pleads for $1 Million to Launch 24 Hour Christian Patriotic News Network

If you’re acquainted with Rick Wiles and TruNews Christian Radio, you might find this of interest. Personally I find it disgusting. An internet ‘Christian’ radio station attempting to manipulate the elderly by using fear tactics, makes me sick. This guy is not only promoting the false  ‘Patriot Christian movement’, he’s a wolf… Posted by Steve […]

Fear Tactics in America

What will we hear about next, people showing up in hoods and white sheets? sigh.. Either action; if openly wearing/showing guns or donning hoods and sheets at a public-held political gathering, one which is garnering as much attention as health care legislation, will produce the same purposefully intended results–that of bullying, fear, and intimidation. And […]

Cults and their Leaders

The cover photo from Time Magazine’s December 1978 issue is truly disturbing. Its a harsh reminder of a cult leader and many of his followers who took that last step from truth and reality, into the unthinkable. While most cult leaders may never reach that point, they are still just as dangerous. They may not […]

Continuing to Manipulate the Sheeple..

Sheeple: A play on the words “sheep” and “people.” It is often used to denote persons who voluntarily acquiesce to a perceived authority, or suggestion without sufficient research to understand fully the scope of the ramifications involved in that decision, and thus undermine their own human individuality or in other cases give up certain rights. […]

The Election, Scare Tactics, and a Thought…

Enough Already! If I get one more Email from from one of these false prophets, right wing ‘Christian’ dominionists, telling me the sky will fall on Election day if I don’t get out there and vote for their (and of course, ‘Gods’) candidate, I’m going to scream. The last was from a well known ministry […]
