Has bad Theology duped us into supporting Terrorism and Oppression?

Not many days go by without seeing some sort of “Stand with Israel” image pop up into my Facebook news feed. And, each time it does, my heart grieves over the fact that so many of my fellow Christians have been taken in by this new and dangerous theology, and in so duped into supporting […]

Antichrist: One or Many?

Few words bring to mind such fear as those who look for an “Antichrist” to lead the forces of Satan against the Son of God in a great apocalyptic conflagration in the final days. The dramatists of the left behind religions of our day predict the terrible end of the world in a horrific battle […]

Why the Early Church Finally Rejected Premillennialism

By Charles E. Hill – (Source: Aletheuo) Chiliasm is the ancient name for what today is known as premillennialism, the belief that when Jesus Christ returns he will not execute the last judgment at once, but will first set up on earth a temporary kingdom, where resurrected saints will rule with him over non-resurrected subjects […]

A Simple Test for Distinguishing Heresy from Sound Doctrine

PyroManiacs: Your weekly dose of Spurgeon It is a remarkable fact that all the heresies which have arisen in the Christian Church have had a decided tendency to dishonor God and to flatter man. They have always had for their covert, if not for their open aim, the exaltation of human nature, and the casting […]

The Genesis 12:1-3 Question Ignites a Firestorm (again)

Looks like this bishop stepped in it: U.S. Bishop Says Jews Have No ‘Exclusive Right’ To Israel quote.. A special Vatican meeting on the Middle East ended Saturday (Oct. 23) with a flare-up in Catholic-Jewish tensions, after an American bishop declared the Bible does not give Jews privileged rights to the land of Israel. “We […]

The Terrible Doctrine of the Remnant

Remnant – a usually small part, member, or trace remaining : a small surviving group: a small part or portion that remains after the main part no longer exists (Rom 9:27) Isaiah also cries concerning Israel, “though the numbers of the sons of Israel is as the sands of the sea, a remnant shall be saved.’ […]

Eternity has fallen out of vogue, even in the church…

Rick Frueh has posted a very timely message, which I hope is only the first of a series. It concerns lost doctrines, of which there are many. Lost, in the since that the Western Church no longer sees them as vitally important. I came face to face with this concerning the blood of Christ some […]

Basic Doctrine: Christianity 101

Two bizarre stories this evening caught my eye. The first from Bryan Fischer, Bible ignored, grandfather mauled by grizzly: History reveals that God’s covenant with an ancient nation suggests that one of the consequences for a nation which walks in his statues is that it will have nothing to fear from wild animals. “If you […]

More concerning Janet Porter

Seems her program was also dropped by Brannon Howse (Worldview Radio) quote… I’ve become concerned as I think we are parting company in the important area of theology and doctrine. So we had to pull the program. A lot of this came to light after the May Day event that took place in Washington DC. […]

An interesting case of misapplying Scripture

The old movie ‘Its a mad mad, mad mad world’ popped into my head as I read Chuck Baldwin’s bizarre reasonings for why State secession is biblical. quote… “The right of State secession is rooted and grounded in the Word of God” Did the Holy Spirit not inspire the New Testament writer to say, “Now […]

“Is God’s Word No Longer The Standard?”

Sent out by Moriel Ministries: What do Ted Haggard, Todd Bentley, and Roberts Liardon all have in common? All either compromised with false doctrine or preached it even before their public falls from grace. As we have warned repeatedly, like morally discredited false teachers from Jim Bakker to Paul Cain and Bob Jones, when someone […]

Sounding Off…(again)

Not only were his radio comments stupid, (I listened to the program) but more importantly he is making his argument by misinterpreting scripture: Posted by radio host Bryan Fischer, of American Family Association at the AFA blog: Focal Point: “a show that explores the intersection of biblical truth and public life.” I received a complaint […]

“Conditional” Eternal Security

This topic is similar to last day prophecy views, in that its “sticky”. In every case where I’ve seen it discussed, it’s ended with those on both sides (of the issue) staying firmly planted where they began, with no change. One thing we can all agree with…one belief is correct and one is wrong. And […]

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 […]

To those who can’t decide what they believe

By Charles Spurgeon, courtesy of Team Pyro The following excerpt is from “A New Year’s Benediction,” a sermon delivered 1 January 1860 at Exeter Hall in London. Oh, how many there are that are never settled! The tree which should be transplanted every week would soon die. Nay, if it were moved, no matter how […]

Pacifism and Nonresistance: Are they the same?

Nonresistance is a principle taught in the Scriptures. The word “nonresistance” is coined from the words of our Lord, when He said, “But I say unto you, that ye resist not evil, but whosoever smites thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” From the very origin of the Anabaptist Movement, nonresistance […]

Doctrine, the New Covenant and Dispensationalism

While reading a presentation, A Return to Biblical Theology, concerning Doctrine, the New Covenant and Dispensationalism, I thought there were a few specific sections which someone new to Theology might find of interest. Section 3: Is Dispensational Premillennialism Different from Historic Premillennialism? Older premillennialism taught that the church was in the forevision of the Old […]

The Scofield Bible Hoax

Excellent message at Soul Refuge: In a recent article in Charisma magazine (July 28, 2009), the well known Christian Zionist Pastor John Hagee made the following statement: “Few Christians recognize that there are five judgments in Scripture. The first has occurred, and four are yet to be.” That statement regarding the numerous judgments of God […]

Defining and Defending Historic Evangelicalism

It seems like everyone declares themselves to be evangelical, but what does this term really mean? Does it have any historical basis? Who are some that are calling themselves evangelical that really aren’t, and why is it important to defend the historic position? These questions and more are answered in this edition of Rightly Divided […]

The Sheer Arrogance of Andy Schlafly & “Conservapedia”

The word arrogant fits Schlafly and his crew at Conservapedia: “an attitude of superiority manifested in an overbearing manner or in presumptuous claims or assumptions.” Not only are they changing the wording in certain bible verses to fit their political agenda, but are removing entire sections of the bible. For instance, they claim John 7:53 […]

The Conservative Bible Project

A must read at The Church of Jesus Christ blog, Get the Liberal Stuff out of our Bible. ..reported by both Ann Fontaine and Deirdre Good, that there is a Conservative Bible Project underway to “translate” the Bible in a more conservative way that will prevent liberal “misinterpretations” or “misconstruals”. Or, to put it another […]

Coral Ridge split…

This was expected. Coral Ridge dissidents organizing breakaway church A new congregation may be in the birthing by dissident members of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church who failed to oust Pastor Tullian Tchividjian last week. The dissidents, who lost a congregational vote Sept. 20 to fire Tchividjian from the Fort Lauderdale church, held a worship service […]

God’s Chosen People – Part 2

Part (1) Those who place the Jews in the center of God’s plan often take great pride in the idea that they take the Bible “literally.” What do they mean by this? Essentially they mean that God’s mind and intent in promises and prophecies are to be determined in much the same way as the […]

Judgment and the House of God: Question

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of […]

STOP messing with the Word of God!

Earlier today I was on the phone with my daughter-in-law, complaining about picking up a container of Cherry Kool -Aid last week at the grocery, which I later realized was something new called ‘Invisible Cherry’. When I want Cherry Kool-Aid, I don’t want some concoction that “might” taste like Cherry but looks like water! Which […]

Transforming the Church

We hear the term Second Reformation often today; “I use “reformation” because, as I have said, these new wineskins appear to be at least as radical as those of the Protestant Reformation almost 500 years ago. “New” adds a contemporary spin to the name….to a significant extent, (its) changing the shape of Protestant Christianity around […]
