Saddened to learn that a Christian author has announced he is no longer Christian. Josh Harris wrote the popular "I kissed dating goodbye," a few years ago, and this week he publicly kissed Jesus goodbye.
He had apparently embraced a different Gospel, not that there is one, and it shipwrecked his faith. It's a lesson in staying true to the sufficiency of Scripture.

By WHOSE Standard?

It’s as if leaders have forgotten that Jesus came as Savior to wipe away our guilt and shame, and are instead demanding that we place that burden right back onto ourselves for something we didn’t even do.

Saints, you’ll want to pay close attention to how the Social Justice Movement has been worming its way into churches of all denominations, but especially into the pews of the Southern Baptist Convention. It’s as if leaders have forgotten that Jesus came as Savior to wipe away our guilt and shame...

"People are not lost because they are homosexual. They are homosexual because they are lost. The most loving thing we can do is to tell him the truth. And the truth is that through the Gospel, a homosexual can join the “such were some of you.” - @JustinPetersMin

Chicago Radio Host & a Former Bodyguard Say James MacDonald Asked Them to Arrange Murders | Julie Roys

Chicago radio personality, Mancow Muller, says disgraced megachurch pastor, James MacDonald, asked him to find a hitman to kill someone. MacDonald's former bodyguard is making a similar claim. Muller said MacDonald— a celebrity pastor who was fired from Harvest Bible Chapel in February—asked him...

Postmodern Christianity’s End Game?

Progressive Christianity is based on three wicked practices: Scoffing (to debase those who believe the Bible is true), Subversion (to undo traditional doctrine), and Rebellion (against God’s Word as truth).

2 Peter 3:3 “…knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires.”

Do you consider yourself a Progressive Christian? If so, you probably will bristle to hear this, but you are part of an incredibly dangerous movement: Postmodernity. Quite frankly, Postmodernity is the yeast that has taken the Church away from the truth and toward a more tolerant, sin-affirming dire...

A young man is applauded as being brave, as he combines his homosexuality with what he believes is his good standing before the "Lord."
We're going to see more and more of this. How are you equipping and preparing your kids and teens in this "brave" new world?

Contending with discernment is so much more than softening your tone. Anyone can do that for awhile if they try. But what’s the motive? Winning a debate? Being right? No. It’s having a broken heart for those who are deceived.

What is Heresy?

Heresy is a false teaching about the essential doctrines of our faith – the ones we must adhere to, regarding who God is, who Jesus is, salvation by grace, and Jesus’ resurrection. Non-essential beliefs are certainly worth discussing with passion (and love of course), but not to the point where ...

Local transgender kids strive to live as the people they were meant to be

This raises a lot of questions for Christians. Like, why are these numbers soaring? Why are suicidal thoughts so prevalent even in "supporting" environments? And how will believers navigate this reality in a way that glorifies Christ without compromising His Word?

Here's an excerpt that speaks volumes:

"Lexy’s in-laws are conservative Lutherans who accused them of inappropriate parenting akin to child abuse when they shared the news. But Poppy is thriving, and the other kids are so naturally accepting that Lexy can’t imagine how any of this could be wrong."

More and more children are openly identifying as a gender that’s different or more complex than the sex they were born into.

It's not just here. Unfortunately, the "name-it-and-claim-it" movement has been exported to poverty-stricken countries, where sheep are ripe for the slaughter.

The world’s fastest-growing false religion tells us that our faith is a “force,” and the words we speak have the power to create something new. The Word of Faith proponents promise we can obtain health, wealth, success, and more if we simply have enough faith. Biblical Christianity says no. Fa...

White Paper: Yoga

The word yoga means to yoke or unite. But it's not uniting body and mind, like we're often told. A careful study of God's Word shows us that people who practice yoga are actually disobeying Scripture:

Many Christians believe that yoga is just relaxation and stretching exercises, and scoff when others warn of the spiritual red flags. Classical yoga does include stretching, controlled breathing and relaxation to increase one’s physical fitness. But that’s just part of yoga. The real intention o...

Andy Stanley: “Most Former Christians Still Have a Crush on Jesus”

"Most former Christians have a crush on Jesus."
If you or a loved one is new to the ways of Andy Stanley, we've established a pattern of unbiblical teaching over the years. Today he launches yet another new book, but distances himself again from The Book.

Megachurch leader Andy Stanley has made some interesting statements over the past few years. Most notably are his statements distancing himself from the authority of Scripture. Easy to mark and avoid a teacher like this, right? Actually, not so easy. Stanley’s many marketable brands include curric...

Downplaying the Devil in NAR

Excerpt:

Scripture gives multiple, sober warnings about the need to be on guard against Satan and his schemes. These warnings are addressed to believers — so no one is exempt from his attacks.

Should you pray for God’s protection from being deceived and then stop worrying about being deceived by the devil? Likewise, once you pray for protection should you then let your guard down, not worry about your need for protection, and embrace all–and I mean all–manifestations of the miraculo...

There is no question that Jen Hatmaker, “evangelical wunderkind who is a one-woman columnist, book-writing machine, conference speaker and all-around mom of five kids and pastor’s wife,” is trying to change minds about what the scriptures teach on many hot button social issues. As we’ve poin...

What are are some of the things that are considered occult practices, i.e. sorcery? Some medical and therapeutic techniques that fall into the category of occult practices may surprise you. Check out our White Paper on Occult - Sorcery.

The term “occult” come from the Latin occultus or “hidden.” Generally the word is used of secret or mysterious supernatural powers or magical, religious rituals. The word “occult” is used to describe any attempt to gain supernatural power or knowledge apart from the God of the Bible. Gen...

Exposing error is most unpopular work. But from every true standpoint it is worthwhile work. To our Savior, it means that He receives from us, His blood-bought ones, the loyalty that is His due. To ourselves, if we consider "the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt," it ensures future reward, a thousand-fold. And to souls "caught in the snare of the fowler" - how many of them God only knows - it may mean light and life, abundant and everlasting. ~ Dr. Harry Ironside

Thanks for Nothing

Excerpt:

The social justice movement engenders in people an entitlement mentality. People believe that they are owed some form of restitution or preferential treatment because of some injustice, real or perceived, that has been done to them. But this is a profound misunderstanding of both the nature of man and of God.

Society paints people as victims. But does the Bible do that? Do we learn from reading the scriptures that although believers suffer unjustly and experience various trials, that those who suffer injustice should view themselves as victims? Certainly not! What the Bible does teach is that we are all....
