Christ, not Caesar, Is Head of the Church

" It has never been the prerogative of civil government to order, modify, forbid, or mandate worship. When, how, and how often the church worships is not subject to Caesar. Caesar himself is subject to God."

A Biblical Case for the Church’s Duty to Remain Open Christ is Lord of all. He is the one true head of the church (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). He is also King of kings—sovereign over ...

We do not report news of increasing apostasy to be so-called "ambulance chasers." We do so to make you aware of the schemes of the enemy, who denigrates God's Word and shipwrecks the faith of the sheep.
And we do this to drive you to your knees in prayer, urging you to stand firm on the truth of Christ.
Time is short. Abide in Him.

Virginia School District Develops New 'Anti-Racist' Curriculum Shaped by Southern Poverty Law Center - Washington Free Beacon

Teaching Tolerance’s list of "Essential Knowledge" for third through fifth grade students includes teaching that "the United States was founded on protecting the interests of white, Christian men who owned property."

Teachers in Virginia's largest school district have developed a new "anti-racist" and "culturally responsible" curriculum that will be available to students as early as this fall.

John Ortberg Hid Son’s Identity in Investigation, Other "Son" Says

John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church, has come under fire again for his actions surrounding a former children’s ministry volunteer who confessed that he experiences sexual attraction to children. Turns out that volunteer was his son Johnny, whom Ortberg allowed to continue working with children for months after learning that information.

The Progressive Disease of Spiritual Deception in Our Time:
https://bereanresearch.org/progressive-disease-spiritual-deception-time/

Those who once stood firm on the solid foundation of biblical doctrine have gone soft. So soft, in fact, that one can hardly differentiate between the so-called born-again Christ followers and the carnal world.
Jesus is not surprised at all, as He warned that this would happen.

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...

This is a story of deliverance. From deliverance ministries.

“Not really knowing better, I let them do a deliverance session on me. Basically, you sit in a chair, they command the demons to come up and speak, and then they get bound and cast out.” Morgan was immersed in a so-called “Deliverance Ministry,” in which he was introduced to the demons who d...

Zondervan to Launch Enneagram Documentary: “Nine”

The enneagram is anything BUT Christian and anything BUT harmless, and those who are followers of Jesus need to steer clear of this practice.
Instead of getting caught up in the latest cultural fad, we must compare everything against the Word of God, as it provides everything we need for life and godliness.

If you’re trying to find yourself, go die to self and find Christ instead.

“This is your invitation to begin the journey of a life transformed,” says Zondervan Publishing, the makers of NINE: The Enneagram Documentary. This will be Zondervan’s first film, and it is launching this fall with heavy PR and marketing campaigning. And though they haven’t said so, I imagi...

Testimonies: “Leaving the NAR Church”

Do you know someone involved in a NAR-leaning church? These stories have helped open the eyes of many to the truth of a very twisted theology. Perhaps one or more of these can be used to help convict your friend or loved one that they're neck deep in trouble:

In January of 2017 I asked my friends on social media if any of them had come out of a New Apostolic Reformation church, and if they’d be willing to share what they experienced, and what happened when their eyes were finally opened to the deception of this insidious movement. In all, 49 people fro...

This is not the communion you are looking for.

We've exposed Copeland many times as a fraud, and continue to do so.

Links in comments for those not familiar with Copeland's Word of Faith/NAR apostasy.

Earlier this afternoon, Kenneth and Gloria participated in the Global Moment of Communion! This was a shared virtual communion service where spiritual leaders gathered to pray in agreement to turn the tide of COVID, as well as for financial and other world issues. You can take communion right where you’re at and come into agreement. We have the victory!

Nick Hall - remember him? Tomorrow (Tuesday April 8) he is gathering a group of red-flagged teachers like Francis Chan, Matt Chandler, Beth Moore, Priscilla Shirer, Ann Voskamp and more for a live "Leader Check In."

The event is sponsored by World Vision. Nick Hall is now leading something called the "Year of the Bible movement, " yet none of these promo materials talk about the sufficiency of Scripture, and we know the teachers listed above go beyond Scripture to their own experiences for truth.

Sage advice.

Hey friends (Michelle, here)-

I shared this meme on my social media yesterday and a few people responded that they had received letters in the mail from Jehovah's Witnesses. "Write them back and tuck in a tract," I said.

If you don't have any tracts you're welcome to copy/paste the text of our "Good News" page into your word processor and print it out: https://awordfitlyspoken.life/good-news/

And it's not just for sending to JWs. You can use it any time you like to share the gospel with anybody.

How 'bout them apples?🍏

Beth Moore fans: NOW will you listen to the warnings?

"Beth Moore preached the sermon this past Sunday at Progressive Baptist Church Chicago. How does she Biblically justify this? She can't. This is open rebellion against Christ's commands. Oh and the message is a complete twisting of God's Word."

The truth is that Mary died, just as all humans do. She has not come back at any time since. What these seers saw was not her.

When Christians build a church building, we don’t usually erect a wall around it, but there’s a very real enemy we need to keep out and protect ourselves from – false doctrine. Michelle and Amy discuss some foundational ways pastors can build a wall – an invisible, spiritual wall – around their churches to keep false doctrine out!

Leaving the NAR Church: Jared’s Story

Jared and his wife had been experiencing what they called demonic thoughts, and sought help through a spiritual deliverance ministry. These spiritual warfare sessions are common in New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) churches and are gaining popularity in mainstream Evangelical churches. Spiritual warfare is one of the hallmarks of the NAR movement.

The deliverance ministry counselor told my wife to close her eyes and allow the demons to speak through her. He explained that each demon has a name, and if bound “by the blood” must be truthful and submissive. Jared and his wife had been experiencing what they called demonic thoughts, and sough...

You have an audio of who you say is Joyce Meyer talking about devils jumping on Jesus. First of all that is NOT THE VOICE of Joyce. What on earth are you trying to do with her incredible ministry? The Steadfast Truth" is that she tells it like it is and that the LOVE and POWER of JESUS is her message, as she shows us how to apply it to our individual lives. Who are you to judge, especially with wrong information. Not even Jesus came to judge the world, but to SAVE it. AMEN
Have you seen this? Thanks!
Does anyone know anything about Pedro Dong and Ezra Ma of Life for All ministries?.
Sadly he did not repent. Here is proof from a video Benny Hinn posted just 15 hours ago! 1) 18:58 he says get yourself out of debt by sowing yourself out of debt. 2) 20:05 he is asking for 120 dollars because "120 is the number of deliverance and liberty" this guy is a pure fraud. 3) 23:20 Another prosperity preacher says "What ever is loosed on earth is then loosed in heaven. that meant, until something leaves my hand, nothing leaves God's hand" I stopped watching at this point. These people are sick, pure evil, preying on the needy. https://www.facebook.com/BennyHinnMinistries/videos/2492817274326450/?hc_location=ufi

I was not familiar with “Berean Research” until today. I was listening to a Christine Caine teaching, and there it was, “Six reasons not to follow Christine Caine” by Marsha West. After reading her thoughts, I would like to know if she or the SBTS believe in ALL the Gifts of the Holy Spirit?

Iran’s special marine unit sabotaged tankers. Fujairah was outside US, Saudi, UAE purview May 13, 2019 @ 20:54 Diane Shalem Fujairah port, Iran sabotages oil tankers A special unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards marine force carried out the sabotage attack Sunday on 4 Saudi oil tankers outside Fujairah port, DEBKAfile’s exclusive sources reveal. Iran chose this venue in the Gulf of Oman waters of the United Arab Emirates for its first proactive strike against US sanctions, because it is way off the beaten track of Gulf oil export routes. There were two other reasons: (a) To show the US and Gulf oil nations that Tehran doesn’t need to block the Strait of Hormuz in order to disrupt the Gulf’s oil exports to international markets. (b) The UAE has built the new Habshan-Fujairah oil pipeline there for the purpose of circumventing the Strait of Hormuz. By striking Fujairah, the Iranians demonstrated that alternative shipping routes are just as vulnerable to Iranian attack as the Gulf of Hormuz. The above picture shows a direct hit to the Norwegian-flagged Andre Victoria oil tanker which was almost scuttled. Our sources note that although war tensions between US and Iran were mounting sharply, Western intelligence and the Gulf emirates were caught off-guard by the location of the Iranian attack and its precise targeting. It is now estimated that Tehran carefully calibrated the blasts to cause damage while falling short of sinking the vessels or inflicting casualties.
