Watching Signs

Why Evangelicals and Catholics Cannot be “Together”

This is a very good article which goes through point by point showing why Evangelicals must not be joined with Catholics.  Its been interesting (and surprising!) to watch what has occurred over the past 35 years. When first coming to Christ my Church preached that Catholics needed the Gospel; over the years evangelizing of Catholics […]

Iran’s Khamenei: GOP letter points to U.S. ‘disintegration

Never thought I’d be publicly agreeing with (the) Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, but in this instance I believe he is correct. The two fiascos (alone) we have witnessed in Washington DC the past couple weeks prove his point.  ‘Isn’t this the ultimate degree of the collapse of political ethics and the U.S. system’s internal disintegration?’ the Iranian […]

Mike Ratliff: What Happens When the Authority of Sacred Scripture is Ignored?

Mike Ratcliff recently addressed a vitally important topic folks…hope you’ll check it out at the link provided 12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. 13 But evil men and impostors will proceed from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 You, however, continue in the things you […]

Are We Seeing Signs of the Close of the Age?

Or, my question is have signs of the end been around, in one way or another, for the last 2000 years?  The Church in our time appears huge, but this is only in appearance. It is thousands of miles wide, but only a fraction of an inch deep. Much of what claims to be Christian […]

The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street

Last night I caught this old (1959-60) episode of the Twilight Zone and couldn’t help but think how in spirit, it applies to America today. We’ve become a nation of fearful paranoia, finger-pointing and potential scapegoat creators. And many of the brethren are participants in spreading this fear and pointing the finger. You can watch […]

Prophecy Mongering: Profiting from the Promulgation of End-Time CRI$I$ Scenarios

In my opinion fear and hate mongers are toxic individuals. When in our presence, or sometimes it just takes reading their articles, they can poison the very atmosphere and air we breathe, on many occasions to such a degree we can become emotionally and physically ill. Believe me, I know this personally. Anyway, I’ve come […]

America – The Modern Golden Calf

Isn’t this sad? Billy Graham last night endorsed Mitt Romney for president, and shortly thereafter, his website was scrubbed of a statement Graham or his organization made calling Mormonism a “cult.” “It was an honor to meet and host Governor Romney in my home today, especially since I knew his late father former Michigan Governor […]

Religious Right and Dominionist Leaders Come Together, Again

A marriage made in hell.. Back in February, we reported that pastor Anne Gimenez was in the process of recreating the 1980 Washington for Jesus rally, which she led with her late husband, Bishop John Gimenez. The new election-oriented prayer rally, called America for Jesus, is scheduled to be held in Philadelphia’s Independence Mall in […]

The Religious Right Comes to Terms with Mormon Leaders

Brian Tashman points to the disappearing line which once divided Evangelicals and Mormons. Last year evangelical writer and WORLD Magazine associate publisher Warren Cole Smith created quite a stir with his column pledging not to vote for Mitt Romney if he wins the Republican nomination because of the boost his presidency would provide to Mormonism. […]

Church and State: or what makes Rick Santorum sick

Presidential candidate Rick Santorum says the notion of religion not playing role in politics “makes me want to throw up.” “To say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes me want to throw up. What kind of country do we live in where only people of non-faith […]

Newt Gingrich Names ‘Apostle’ Dutch Sheets to his Faith Leaders Coalition

Looks like the dominionist NAR  is still working behind the scenes to gain the “mountain of government” …. Newt Gingrich’s campaign announced today that Dutch Sheets, a self-appointed apostle and a major figure in the New Apostolic Reformation, will join his Faith Leaders Coalition as a National Co-Chair. See: Apostle Dutch Sheets Endorses Newt Gingrich, […]

Fox News Contributor: Why Gingrich’s Three Marriages May Be A “Plus”

I’m speechless…. An opinion piece by Dr. Keith Ablow, a member of Fox News’ “Medical A-Team,” appeared on FoxNews.com today. In it, Ablow argues that the fact that Republican candidate Newt Gingrich has been married three times means that he could be an effective president: I want to be coldly analytical, not moralize, here. I […]

American Family Association Targets Radio Hosts Over Association With Critic

The American Family Association has taken aim at fellow religious conservative Brannon Howse over his criticism of the AFA’s recent sponsorship of GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry’s The Response prayer meeting (see, The New Religious Right And Its Threat To The Church). Earlier this week, Jim Stanley, program director of AFA’s radio network, American Family Radio, […]

Why the Antichrist Matters in Politics

Jewel Grewe (founder of Discernment-Ministries) found this interesting (I agree) and posted it at her facebook page.. NYTimes THE end is near — or so it seems to a segment of Christians aligned with the religious right. The global economic meltdown, numerous natural disasters and the threat of radical Islam have fueled a conviction among […]

Company Offering Free AK-47s for People Opening New Accounts

 What can I say…. Do you happen to need an AK-47, as well as a company to process your credit card transactions? If so, that would make today your lucky day, strangely enough. MerchantService.com — a Sarasota-based company that provides the equipment and processing for credit-card transactions in businesses — announced its “Free AK-47 Giveaway” […]

Evangelical Pastors heed political call for 2012

 You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. You therefore must endure[a] hardship as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.  No one engaged in […]

Mitt Romney ‘Obviously Not a Christian,’ Fox Host Says

Mitt Romney is “not a Christian” and therefore he may not have a good chance of raising big money among Christians if Rick Perry runs for president, “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt said Sunday. The discussion on Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s possible run for the White House Sunday morning led Earhardt, Fox News correspondent […]

An aberrant form of Christianity

Rick Frueh (Judah’s Lion) has written a very good post… I believe we are living in the last days. I have no idea about the day or hour, but the signs are becoming more and more clear. Although Israel is a secular nation whose inhabitants deny Christ for the most part, that nation seems to […]

Religious Right Leaders, Dominionists and False Prophets: United at Last

Janet Porter of Faith2Action has started a new website, IsraelYoureNotAlone.com, and has managed to gather a whole host of names for a Wall Street Journal ad condemning President Obama’s handling of the Israeli-Palestinian crisis. Porter, who last week blamed the deadly tornadoes in the South on Obama’s approach to Israel and legal abortion, garnered signatures […]

Florida pastor Terry Jones, “We do not feel responsible”

What an idiot… Responding to news that Florida pastor Terry Jones had last week burnt the Quran, a mob of Afghans in the relatively calm city of Mazar-i-Sharif ransacked the United Nations headquarters there, killing 12 people. Last year, Jones sparked widespread condemnation when he threatened to burn a copy of the Quran outside his […]

The Awakening 2011 to be aired on C-SPAN

C-SPAN plans to broadcast live The Awakening 2011, which will be held on the campus of Liberty University April 8-9. This will be the first time C-SPAN has come to Liberty University. More than 60 national speakers will make presentations at The Awakening 2011, which will include plenary sessions, panel discussions, breakout sessions, and live […]

David Barton and “Company”

Since first reading about the conference mentioned below I’ve wanted to post about it but frankly didn’t know where to begin. This type of stuff, which has become common-place in America today (and will no doubt only escalate before the next election) for me personally, is mind-numbing. One statement, made by potential Presidential candidate Mike […]

Guns in Church? Imagine the Franchise Opportunities

This had me laughing out-loud…though in reality it’s probably not far from the truth; which isn’t funny. By: Colin Harris (professor of religious studies at Mercer University and a member of Smoke Rise Baptist Church in Stone Mountain, Ga.) Proposed “bring your guns to church” legislation, now on the floor in a couple of states, […]

We Need a Christian Dictator

Dominionism on Steroids: This video clip from youtube’s Michael Voris of Real Catholic TV should be shocking but in reality its not, for he only voices what the ultimate (political) goal is among a particular (growing) segment of American society today. They’re just not straight-forward enough to admit it. What’s that old saying?…ah yes, I […]

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 […]

The Rise of Charismatic Dominionism

This is an interesting article by Rachel Tabachnick. A few excerpts below… (Link to complete article at the end) Over two years ago I wrote, but never published, the following article. It was immediately following the 2008 election and the Religious Right was being eulogized by the press. The topic is the transition of large […]
