Zionist Christians’ war on the true meaning of Christmas

“The rhetoric of Christian Zionists consistently places loyalty to the modern state of Israel above the example and teachings of the Jesus born in Bethlehem whose birth Christmas celebrates. It’s time to stop calling such groups Christian Zionists and instead use the term Zionist Christians, to more accurately reflect their priorities” I agree with the […]

“We were a one-issue organization: Israel!”

This afternoon I came across this old article (from 2012) written by John Hagee and published as an op-ed at the Washington Post. That one statement from Hagee, chosen as the title to this post, really says it all, doesn’t it. What the CUFI organization, John Hagee, and Christian Zionist are all about. They are all […]

The God of Christian Zionism

Been trying to tackle my mail this afternoon and came upon the link to an article by Stan Goodenough at Jerusalem Watchman: And I quote, To correctly approach, understand and respond to End of Days Biblical prophecy we should view it through an Israel-centric lens. All prophecies pertaining to the end of the age should be […]

The danger of Christians “standing with Israel”…or any other nation!

Last evening I left a comment under another post which concerned a topic which has puzzled me for some time. It concerns the State of Israel:  I realize many if not most Christians strongly believe what we see as ‘Israel’ today, is a fulfillment of prophecy. But if you read closely in the old testament, […]

Wicked Idolatry

Excellent message by Rick Frueh… In the ever growing pantheon of Christian celebrities and the self serving conferences here is one of which I was unfamiliar. Here is David Jeremiah who many consider a good teacher and orthodox but as you can read held a “celebration” of the publishing of his own “Jeremiah Study Bible”. […]

Sign of the Times…

Just musing here folks… Recently, while reading through a few threads at a number of Christian discussion boards, I came upon this topic posted at Rapture Ready:  Anybody’s church going pro-Palestinian? We don’t hear a lot about the small number of Palestinian Christians who have decided to stay put…many have, as you know, left the […]

A Quote: An Example of Heresy

This is an example of why I no longer hesitate in referring to dispensational theology/eschatology as heresy. New article posted at Rapture Ready –  Israel: God’s Prophetic Time Clock By Ray Smith The Bible contains approximately thirty percent prophecy. God, in His wisdom and mercy must have thought it was critical to include in His Word […]

My Country ‘Tis of Thee: Evangelicals Score Highest on Patriotism

WASHINGTON (RNS) — When it comes to God and country, white evangelicals report the most intense patriotic feelings in a new poll, with more than two-thirds (68 percent) saying they are extremely proud to be an American. That figure was markedly higher than for white mainline Protestants (56 percent), minority Christians (49 percent), Catholics (48 […]

Christians and the Battle for Conservatism

Conservatism: A Myth, A Delusion & An Idol

“Fear Not, Little Flock”: The King’s Promise that Presidents Can’t Match

Good article by Michael Horton, If our hopes indicate what we value most—what keeps us going, then our fears reveal the same in reverse. What do we need (or think we need) so much that we would be unable to go without it? And what do we believe in so much that if it doesn’t […]

FRC joins with Church to ‘Actively Pray and Work for the Defeat of Barack Obama’

Right Wing groups like the Family Research Council, along with more and more Churches, have really stepped up their fight to do away with the separation of Church and State.  In their goal to “restore” America they are working hard to change America’s form of government from a Democracy to a Theocracy.  Rick, at Following Judah’s Lion, […]

The Sin of Dominionists

Just as Moses was delayed from coming back down the mountain, the people fell back into the idolatry they were just delivered from in Egypt (Exodus 32)…After all they did not know how long he would be on the mountain, 40 days seemed like an eternity and they lost patience. Likewise in the last days […]

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 […]

“The church in America continues to bring water buckets to a fire…..”

Rick Frueh has written a very good piece; one which is surely needed as we gear up to watch the coming political circus.  quote… This weekend saw a gathering of evangelical leaders and presidential hopefuls. The men and women were “courting” the religious right in hopes of eliciting their votes next year. The main issues […]

Does the USA have special favor in the eyes of God?

Interesting article and some interesting comments to the question. USA Today-Religion: quote.. Does the USA have special favor in the eyes of God? Republicans are making political hay by reviving this idea — as old as the first colonialists — that this is a land favored by the Lord with an exceptional destiny, according to […]

Theologian Chris Wright: “We are a scandal and a stumbling block to the mission of God”

Good article… CAPE TOWN, South Africa – Respected theologian Chris Wright gave a challenging critique Saturday of the evangelical movement when he said a disturbing number of its leaders are guilty of idolatry. God’s people today, like in the Old Testament, have fallen to worshiping the false gods and idols of the world, said the […]

“Half-Baked” Christianity

Excellent message by Pastor Larry DeBruyn. I heard a similar message preached many years ago, also based upon Hosea 7:8, “Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned. Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he […]

Christians Bolster Jews as Settlement Freeze Ends: Israel – An Evangelical Idol

In his latest post Rick Frueh reminds us of how many evangelicals have fallen into idolatry concerning Israel. This news story is a case in point: Hundreds of Christians from a dozen nations joined together with 3,000 Israelis on Sunday evening in the small Samarian Jewish community of Revava to mark the end of the […]

1980: The rise of the Religious Right as a political force

This is both an interesting and informative slice of history. It helps shed light on the uniting of politics and Christianity in America, 30 years ago. It also helps explain the apostasy many of our denominations and individual Churches and/or leaders fell into over time. (If time allows also read the story linked in the […]

Orthodox Idolatry

The Holy Spirit has led me to yet another hard hitting message today. This one is written by Rick Frueh (Following Judah’s Lion blogspot). For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator… Secular freedom is nothing more than idolatry. Fallen man seeks to […]

Nix Vacation Bible School, now its Vacation “Liberty School”

(Big thanks to John A. for sending the link) When I read things like this, my thoughts go to my first Pastor Brother Trent, now with the Lord, and what he’d say. Vacation Bible School was a much anticipated program every summer in our little Church. It was prayed about very seriously. We knew neighborhood […]

Does John Hagee Rob God?

God says: “You shall have no other gods before Me”(Ex. 20:3). Isaiah 48:11 For My own sake, for My own sake, I will do it; For how should My name be profaned? And I will not give My glory to another. Isaiah 42:8 I am the Lord, that is My name; My glory I give […]

Es lebe unser heiliges Deutschland!

Rick Frueh has written a powerful post today. On July 21, 1944 at about 1:00 A.M., a Nazi firing squad lifted their rifles, and lit by the headlights of cars, they executed their human target. Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg fell dead, having been executed for his major part in a failed attempt to assassinate Adolf […]

Saint Sarah, of the Palin

Well, so much for presuming I was going to get caught up with the latest news today, AHA! (Company dropped by). Joel posted on the article written by Lisa Miller concerning Sarah Palin, and I must say his intro had me laughing. What’s NOT funny is as far-fetched as it sounds there’s a grain of […]

American Mary Group Unveils Design for World’s Tallest Monument

“(The) symbolism of goddess adoration is vital to understanding our society’s obsession with goddess worship and the occult in general. In our attempt as Christians to comprehend the roots of the New Age movement, we must be aware that Satan has tirelessly thrust the deities of ancient Egypt upon mankind for thousands of years. Ultimately […]

Charisma: 21 Emerging Leaders of Tomorrow’s Church

Things have sure changed during my lifetime. The time was when you’d hear something like this; “Praise God, this young preacher has surely received the call! When he preaches the Word, Holy Ghost conviction falls upon all those listening….etc etc etc…” Folks, not in todays Church. Now we have the ‘leaders’ of tomorrow’s Church with […]
