Another Embarrassing Voice Heard From

Excellent post by Rick at Following Judah’s Lion,  As is their want, the moralistic, patriotic voices rise to the occasion. Instead of having a common sense conversation on gun control, or better yet a sharing of the importance of eternity, Mike Huckabee pontificates about kicking God out of the schools… (continue here) Rick’s observations reminded […]

Joel Osteen: ‘Homosexuality Is A Sin’

Quote… In an interview which will air Wednesday on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, megachurch pastor Joel Osteen declares that homosexuality is a sin based on his understanding of Christian scripture. In response to Morgan’s direct question, “Is homosexuality a sin?” Osteen had this to say: “Yes, I’ve always believed, Piers, the scripture shows that it’s […]

Might the Evangelical Church be on the Verge of a Gay Awakening?

A very thought provoking post from Mike Ratliff at Possessing the Treasure quote… This ministry exists solely by the grace of God. I do not depend on donations or advertisers to keep things going. I work for a living and this site is maintained on WordPress.com so it is free. I spend time and prayer […]

National Repentance, Praying by PROXY: Is this Biblical?

Herescope and Anton Bosch offer some excellent thoughts on the topic… People observing the National Day of Prayer on Thursday at Meetinghouse Park prayed at seven stations set up to represent seven centers of power in America: Government, church, military, family, education, media and business…. The Task Force’s mission, according to its literature, is to […]

“Mercy Walked In”

This is a favorite of mine. Gordon Mote has sure been blessed by God with talent and a beautiful voice. I’m so glad he uses both to Glorify the Lord. This time every year I find myself contemplating anew, the Cross, the blood, and Jesus’ self-sacrifice. My heart overflows with renewed gratitude for the morning […]

Shoplifting is ‘Least Worst Option’ for Poor

Says Father Tim Jones.. A Church of England priest has found himself at the center of controversy after he told his congregation it was morally justifiable for the poor to shoplift. Father Tim Jones of St. Lawrence and Hilda Church in York said this week that he did not believe it was right for people […]

Sins In The Camp

Now all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. 1 Corinthians 10:11 (Read Joshua 6-9) But the Israelites acted unfaithfully in regard to the devoted things; Achan son of Carmi, the son of Zimri, the son of Zerah, of […]

Letters of John Newton (Amazing Grace)

Inscription on John Newton’s Tombstone: John Newton, Clerk, once an infidel and libertine … was, by the rich mercy of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, preserved, restored, pardoned, and appointed to preach the faith he had long laboured to destroy. July 24, 1725 – December 21, 1807 From: The Collection of John Newton Letters […]

Socialism and Homosexuality, “plus”…

Now, I don’t pretend to be an expert on Socialism, but in the books and paper’s I have read on the topic, never once did I see it mentioned that there was a correlation between Socialism and the sin of homosexuality. (See, Socialism) But this politician tries to make the case for believing there is.. […]

Hagee welcomes gay groups

An interesting story sent out this evening. I don’t have much to say, but I tagged this story with ‘watching signs’. Its no secret that my opinion of John Hagee is, well.. not very high. Once he drifted completely into hyper-dispensationalism and applied it to politics and foreign policy, I stopped giving heed to anything […]

Update: Suspect supported killing abortion providers, friends say

Both Brian and Gary brought up (in the other thread) the possibility this guy might be associated with abortionist organizations AND have claimed to be a Christian; and the possible consequences which could arise if so. After reading this below, it may be the case. Either way, many non-Christians (and the media) will latch on […]

Pentecost: Wind and Fire

Only yesterday did I jot down a reminder that this Sunday (the 31st) is Pentecost. Lee Grady posted somewhat of an interesting commentary on the topic: Wind and Fire: The Double Portion of Pentecost. The genuine power of the Holy Spirit is not just about miracles—we must also embrace holiness. Very few evangelical Christians today […]

Blinded to Death..

This is not a pleasant post, nor are the video clips easy to watch. But sin is never pretty. The video clip below is one I posted over a year ago after coming across it at GCMWatch, posted by Pastor Foster. Today Pastor Foster has re-posted the clip. I hope you’ll take the time to […]

THE MISS CALIFORNIA CONTROVERSY

Since this whole debacle came to light and hit the Internet, especially the blogosphere, I just plain didn’t have any desire to post about it, LOL. I mean, what was the controversy? A young contestant, Miss California believes (rightly) marriage should be between a man and woman and said so, and predictably, one of the […]

NO SHAME, NO BLAME

Isn’t it interesting when the world sees what the Church many times misses? Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD. Jeremiah […]

Christians in a Globalized World; Justified by Jesus Christ

This entire series, based on the book of Romans, has been very good: I hope its encouraged you as much as it has me. The newest segment below got my undivided attention because a portion deals with Legalism and Law-based Christianity today. I plan on passing it on to my 2 sons who are experiencing […]

Judgment and Deliverance – the lesson of Pesach

Great message at Messianic Good News: “Seek the LORD, all you meek of the earth, who have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: perhaps you shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger” – Zephaniah 2:3 The consistent purpose of every true prophet was: to warn that judgment is inevitable to call […]

Mission to Lepers, “The Unknown Saints”

WILLIAM WORDSWORTH IN A FINE PASSAGE states his belief that there are many more poets in the world than we suppose, “… men endowed with highest gifts, The vision and the faculty divine,” but who are unknown because they lacked or failed to cultivate the gift of versification. Then he sums up his belief in […]

National Sins And National Judgments

“For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory. The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto […]

David Wilkerson: AN URGENT MESSAGE

Saturday, March 7, 2009 – AN URGENT MESSAGE I am compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message to all on our mailing list, and to friends and to bishops we have met all over the world. AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. IT IS GOING TO BE SO FRIGHTENING, WE […]

The Holy Spirit: The fruits and effects He produces

“When He comes, He will convict the world about  sin, righteousness, and judgment.” John 16:8 Where the Holy Spirit is, there will always be deep conviction of sin and true repentance for it. It is His special office to convince of sin.

In the Matter of Baal-peor

“And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab. And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods; and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods. And Israel joined himself unto Baal-peor: and the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel. […]

Todd Bentley’s Sock Puppet will now Field Questions from the Press?

Well, it appears Todd wasn’t too happy about some of the comments made by the board of directors of Fresh Fire Ministries in their recent letter sent out: (see, Update from Fresh Fire Ministries concerning Todd Bentley) Perhaps I should add Todd Bentley’s name to the list: “the gift which keeps on giving”. This story […]

The Fallen, Church Discipline, and Restoration

This is one topic we don’t hear much about today–which is strange in the face of so many Christian leaders who have fallen. Then again, perhaps its not so strange, for most never acknowledge they HAVE fallen! Anyway, this evening I came upon a news article concerning fallen leader Ted Haggard and thought it could […]

The Blood of Jesus Christ cleanses from all sin

“Our sins are great; every sin is great; but there are some that in our apprehension seem to be greater than others. There are crimes that the lip of modesty could not mention. I might go far in this pulpit this morning in describing the degradation of human nature in the sins which it has […]
