December 31, 2019, 11:13:54 am ciwarrior1 says: The King James bible is NOT the pure word of God. In fact there are many errors in it. That is why the Pilgrims rejected the King James bible and relied on the Geneva Bible. In fact, the King James Bible is a paraphrase. The Bishops Bible, the Great Bible, and the Geneva Bible were used to produce the King James. Also, King James used the Massoretic text for the Greek and this text has proved to be faulty. The oldest Massoretic text dates back to about 950 AD with it coming out in book form in about 1000 AD. However, the dead sea scrolls proved that the Massoretic text wasn't even a viable text when you consider that the dead sea scrolls supported the Greek Septuagint over 90% of the time over the Massoretic text. The Massoretic text comes from the Jews who are the Synagogue of Satan. They are corrupt and vile, and they are not God Yahweh's chosen people Israel. True Israel are the white Caucasian, Celtic, Anglo Saxon, Germanic, Scandinavian, and kindred people in the world today. You would be better off getting the Ferrar-Fenton bible, the Rotherham Bible, and so forth. These bibles are more accurate than the King James Bible. However, there is an agenda to misinterpret the bible. For example, according to the bible race mixing is a sin. However, how many church's promote race mixing because they think that the King James bible says so. It doesn't, but since the read it and don't do any investigation, they just believe it. Also, many Christian pastors are crypto Jews just like Pastor David Jeremiah, Benny Hinn, and so forth.

September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

A very bad habit since I was young - please pray that it disappears from me, and my love should be 100% focused of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and not other things like wanting to score 100's on tests and exams in school.

And they also say stuff like how I surf the internet too much, etc, etc.

In general, people need to put things more in perspective - if xmas really is a "christian" holiday, then why the heck does the entire world of unbelievers celebrate it cheerfully?

hey people tell me that too that "how do you know truthers aren't lying to you" and "well theres weirdos online" wow

also i know what you mean i tried to tell my stepdaad that what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God, and i look at how theres santas EVERYWHERE on tv this time of year. santa is so stupid!

Well, there's many more WACKOS in the MSM and the rest of television, FWIW. FOX and CNN, as we all know, CONTROL the news reportings and play the nonsense left/right paradigm, and to boot, even "conservative" FOX News has many times praised the Pope and the Vatican. And then there's all the money-grabbing wolves on TBN, Skyhype, etc.

Frankly, I'll take my chances with the "wackos" on the internet. Wink
28053  General Category / Fellowship / Re: xmas-what kind of reactions do you get? on: December 12, 2010, 11:07:54 pm
I tell people that Jesus was probably born in September or October which connects with the Jewish Calendar and lambs being born. I tell people that December 25 is a pagan ritual day and not a Celebration of Jesus's birth. If they are not a Christian this information doesn't mean anything to them.

Here lies the problem when I explain what you said-one person responded how the old Jewish calendar and the modern day calendar are much different, and how somehow the Sept in the Jewish and Dec 25 in the modern day match up. And they say how they know this because, "Whoever well-respected seminary professor or godly pastor said so".

I even go on to say that the RCC et al used astrology to make up this 12/25 nonsense, and their response is something like, "But times were different almost 2000 years ago". I'm like, "Huh? We should know that the Word of God NEVER changes, now all of a sudden there's exceptions?".(ie-astrology, as we all know, is condemned in the bible, and is rooted in witchcraft - still, somehow, they say how I misinterpret bible passages).

And they also say stuff like how I surf the internet too much, etc, etc.

In general, people need to put things more in perspective - if xmas really is a "christian" holiday, then why the heck does the entire world of unbelievers celebrate it cheerfully?
28054  General Category / Fellowship / xmas-what kind of reactions do you get? on: December 12, 2010, 01:52:49 pm
I'm presently getting an earful from my family for not wanting to participate in the festivities this year. During our xmas show at my church today, I stayed silent on a couple of hymns the world would embrace during this time, and in my prayer at lunch, my mom wanted me to say to be thankful for Jesus' birth at this time of year, but instead, I chose instead to replace those words with being thankful daily for his death, shedding his blood, and his resurrection power saving the world from their sins.

Just curious - what kind of reactions do you get from your family and close ones when you choose not to want to participate in any way in these festivities? The comments I've been getting were stuff like "You're twisting scripture", "You're anti-social", "But our pastor is very sharp, if he says so, it must be true", "Our seminary Presidents are the most godly people, don't you ever say they are wrong!", etc.

I know we have to put all our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and his Word, but just curious what kind of reactions do you get? And how do you respond? Personally, I'll admit I express my frustration back, which is very wrong too.

Thought I would add another comment to this thread...

I read recently that up to 40% of doctors will be quitting due to the overbearance in Obamacare.

I'm not trying to say every single medical profession person is corrupt and evil, but you can't deny that the entire medical profession as a whole is just that. Anyhow, pt trying to make is that IMHO, God may have allowed Obamacare as one of his judgements on the medical profession. No, I'm not being dogmatic about it, nor am waving my pom-poms cheering on Obamacare. But from what I understand, it seems like doctors and people in the medical profession are getting hit harder than the average joe who's barely doing enough to make ends meet for his family.

Scripture said many times how God would revenge the enemies of the elect, and vengeance belongeth to him. I think we're witnessing this(as one example here).

Another thing - every now and then, I hear a few of my Christians friends tell me how Catholics are good people because they do alot of good giving to charities et al to society, and don't act self-righteous.

Almost every time, I have to tell them that what they're doing with their "good works" is a SET UP-ie, one of them being is that they're using these "good works" to have all religions to work together...meaning this is a step for this **** church to UNITE all the pagan religions with christianity as much as possible. The Emergent Church is doing the exact same thing. IOW-their intentions are NOT good.

We really have to watch our backs and serve the Lord, and the Lord Jesus only in these rough times we're living in now.
28059  General Category / Gospel of Jesus Christ / Re: "...but if thou mayest be made free..." on: December 09, 2010, 09:45:41 pm
No commments? Interesting.

Excellent!

You know, I've been thinking along these lines for the past few months or so - yes, the going's getting rough now, but God's Word NEVER changes. Evil will be destroyed in the end, all we have to do is OBEY and TRUST in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you for posting this - even I myself have been guilty of yoking up myself with the world system et al here and there. Scripture clearly says not to.
28060  General Category / Member's videos / Re: santa causing atheism on: December 06, 2010, 08:09:54 am
oh so true. im way better off now than my cousins. one died and he wasnt a christian. =(

Either way, whether we can tons of gifts or very few, noone is satisfied. There were times I myself got alot, and other times where I got really not much - by the time the first week of Jan rolled around, all was forgotten, and I had bigger fish to fry to other stuff going on.

Plus there are bible verses warning to NOT accept gifts. Maybe it's in a different context, I don't know, but it seems to me that the Word of God has warned sternly about accepting gifts on any occassion.

Pro 15:27  He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

Pro 29:4  The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.

Isa 1:23  Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.

"He" also causes coveteousness - as a kid, that's all I did weeks prior to xmas time...look through toy catalog after toy catalog over what I craved for.

Also, guess what, right after xmas was over, all that "junk" I got, it would almost immediately wear off from me. I remember all those GI Joe toys I got when I was little - months later my cousin called me and asked me if I was enjoying them, and I was like, "What GI Joe toys Huh".

1Th 5:1  But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
1Th 5:2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1Th 5:3  For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
1Th 5:4  But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.


2Th 2:1  Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2Th 2:2  That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.


2Pe 3:2  That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
2Pe 3:3  Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2Pe 3:4  And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation
.
2Pe 3:5  For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6  Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

If anything, this whole stunt this "ministry" is pulling is a SET UP. What if by 5/21/2011, Jesus hasn't returned yet? Yep, the scoffers will INCREASE by who knows how much? Or what if he returns an hour from now after I post this message? It's gonna take even this very ministry by big surprise.

Satan is very good at what he does, something like this will only stir the hearts and minds of everyone(which Paul warned about in 2nd The).

With that being said, I do think the Lord's return is very near, but it is unbliblical to contemplate what date he will come back.
28064  General Category / Fellowship / Re: Scandal of Evangelical Dishonesty on: December 04, 2010, 04:33:46 pm
One thing I have noticed about all of these "Christian" books - no matter how good or bad these authors are(whether they're ghost writers or not), the more you read them, the more CONFUSION it causes within your own soul. I've had this experience 4 years ago where I thought I would put more emphasis reading these "Christian" books, and less on the bible itself, and as it turned out, each writer(or ghost writer) had one different thing to say than another. Even the "good" ones(that had alot of sound biblical things in their books) admitted they shared respect for the Pat Robertsons et al of this world even though they "disagreed" on a number of things.

Again, not all of them are bad(I used to read Charles Stanley's stuff until I found out he endorsed contemplative prayer), but again, the flesh will get the best of everyone.

I mean overall, it's as if this "church" world has really been turned upside down today. Today's "Christian bookstores" is filled with Apostate books, alot of our teleevangelists are somehow well respected even though their heresies are very obvious, pulpits are using either some modern day perverted version or some man's works, etc.

Wheaton College Teams Up With Tony Blair’s Interspiritual Faith Foundation

Wheaton College is teaming up with Tony Blair and has become the first American Associate University for his Faith Foundation. t’s a major coup for Blair’s efforts to “unite world religions.” Here the UK’s Telegraph reports on Blair’s plan to “unite world religions” to work for peace and progress. Rick Warren’s already on the board, so bringing Wheaton on must have been easy.

Biblical Christians have watched Wheaton and other evangelical colleges that sneered at “fundamentalism” circle the drain. They are now useful tools and cheerful participants in the creation of a new spirituality that denies the exclusivity of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and instead works to improve the planet. The Blair Foundation is comprised of world religions all of whom are coming together in a denial of the Christ of the Bible in order to fight social ills. Christ’s clear commission no longer matters. Furthering Tony Blair’s spiritual deception does.

So if the player scores a touchdown and does any kind of celebration, it's a penalty? Roll Eyes

No wonder kids are messed up with the adults around them acting so stupid. God willing the guy's team wins the state title and he can openly celebrate in the end zone all he wants.

They've pretty much cracked down on every little bitty type of endzone celebrations in the NFL. What was OK and noone cared about 10-20 years ago is all of a sudden being cracked down like they're running a Police State.

28069  General Category / Bible Study / Brannon House: Is It Negative and Unbiblical to Name False Teachers? on: December 01, 2010, 07:10:21 pm
http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-times/article.php?articleid=6684

After our Worldview Weekend Rally in Rockford, Illinois on Sunday night November 21, 2010, we were informed that the church we had been renting for the past few years does not want us to return. What is really sad is this is the church in which my wife grew up and has included five generations of her family dating back to her great grandparents on both sides of her family. One set of great grandparents were two of the original 13 founders of this church.

At the conclusion of our November 21, 2010, Rockford Worldview Weekend we were told that three months before the rally the church staff had voted for Worldview Weekend not to return in 2011 because our 2009 rally was thought by some of the church staff to be too negative and that it was inappropriate to name the name of false teachers.

I asked what their senior pastor thought about that evening's Worldview Weekend Rally but was informed that the senior pastor had chosen not to attend the conference. 

Please understand that I am not going to name the church because those that attended the conference and live in the area know the church of which I speak. I am not writing this article because of some kind of personal offense but to highlight how Biblical truth has become an offense to most of America's churches.

Many such churches would claim to love truth but what they really love is a man-centered Christianity that helps them obtain success in their marriage, finances, family, and a positive attitude that produces health and a successful personal life without the pain of dying to self, picking up the Cross of Christ and being persecuted for proclaiming Truth.

II Timothy 4:3 tells us that many Christians will only want to hear what makes them feel good and appeals to their flesh; "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears."

The 2009 speakers that joined me for the Worldview Weekend Rally in Rockford, Illinois included me, Dr. Erwin Lutzer and Dr. David Reagan.

In my 2009 presentation I spoke on the topic of my book Grave Influence and I did name such Emergent Church, false teachers as Pastor Brian McLaren who has said the cross and hell is false advertising for God. I named Pastor Bill Hybels that signed the Yale document that states that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. Hybels has also had Brian McLaren at his church. I also mentioned Pastor Rick Warren who sits on the advisory board of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation that seeks to bring the religions of the world together. I also named Pastor Rob Bell who has proclaimed an abundance of heresy and who has also spoken as Bill Hybel's church. I spoke on why pagan spirituality was doubling in America every eighteen months and how many New Age practices had come into the churches of America such as "Christian" yoga and contemplative prayer. I explained how Christian could proclaim the Gospel to a postmodern culture that has become more interested in spirituality than theology. I also warned last year, as I did this year, that many churches are being compromised from within by church staff that do not adhere to the Biblical mandates and purposes of a New Testament church and are an inch deep and a mile wide in their doctrinal and theological understanding and commitment. I warned that the remnant should understand that our greatest opposition would not come from the government but from those that have the title "reverend" or "pastor" in front of their name. Click here to hear a few minutes of the presentation I presented at this church in 2009.

In 2009, Dr. Lutzer spoke on seven lessons America should learn from Nazi Germany and Dr. Reagan spoke on 50 signs we are living in the last days. All three of us used a lot of scripture to equip those in attendance to understand the times and know what God would have them to respond.

Worldview Weekend is thankful for the churches that will allow us to rent their buildings but the increasing trend is that we are being forced to rent more and more hotel ballrooms because so few churches have leaders, staff, and pastors that have clear discernment, real courage under fire, and an unwavering commitment to Biblical truth in an age of non-judgmentalism, tolerance, and Christian happy talk.

No one ever said being a watchman on the wall that warns of impending danger was going to be a popular job but if popularity is what we seek then we are not seeking to be faithful to the One we serve and thus we have failed in our calling.

Warning the church of emerging dangerous, unbiblical trends, false teachers, a false gospel, and unbiblical theology and doctrine has now become negative in the eyes of many of today's hirelings. Jesus Himself told us that we would see those that claim to be shepherds/pastors that really have little concern for the sheep. In John 10:11-13 we read:



I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.

Listen to this audio of Pastor John MacArthur as he explains how Jesus named the names of false teachers and how this is the job of all Biblically minded Christians and true shepherds. In this audio clip Pastor MacArthur calls out Rick Warren by name for teaching a false gospel.

Worldview Weekend will not be deterred in speaking truth no matter how unpopular it becomes with individuals or members of a church staff.

Needless to say, I was concerned how my wife would respond to this criticism since she was raised in this church. Her response revealed to me, once again, how blessed I am that God gave Melissa to me as a helpmate. Melissa's response was "why are you surprised, you knew this church was becoming increasingly liberal over the past few years. I was shocked they let Worldview Weekend return for the 2010 rally."


 Melissa encouraged me to shake the dust from my shoes and go out and find a hotel ballroom. She also encouraged me to continue to bring the Worldview Weekend to Rockford because of all the people, including life-long friends, that come up to her at the resource table to express their thankfulness that Worldview Weekend returns to Rockford, IL each year.

In fact, that night, while standing behind our resource table, a medical doctor, that is a member of this church, handed my wife a letter he had written to his children after last year's Worldview Weekend in Rockford. In his letter he wrote in part:

 

…I attended a Worldview Weekend Rally at [name of church removed] on Sunday evening, November 22nd, and found it to be very helpful, informative, stimulating and timely."

This father went on to recommend that his children read some of the books written by the speakers.



At this point in time, all three books impress me as being coherent, credible, plausible, relevant, responsible, strategic and timely. I believe that they qualify as priority reading for serous Christian believers and church leaders who need and want to be alert to the crucial times in which we and our families are living."

This letter reveals a common response and a common problem that I have seen all across America-lay leaders that are more Biblically grounded, discerning, and committed to Biblical truth than some of their own church staff.

The Worldview Weekend in Rockford was held at another location a few years ago and has consistently had a large attendance regardless of where it is held. Thus, if you live in or near Rockford please know we will return and have already secured a hotel ballroom for the November 2011 Worldview Weekend Rally in Rockford, IL.

Let me answer the question of our article. Is it negative and unbiblical to name false teachers?  The Bible is filled with examples of Jesus and others naming false teachers by name. For example, the Apostle Paul in 2 Timothy names numerous people by name.

2 Timothy 1:15: Phygellus and Hermogenes
2 Timothy 2:17: Mymenaeus and Philetus
2 Timothy 3:8: Jannes and Jambress
2 Timothy 4:10: Demas
2 Timothy 4:14: Alexander the coppersmith

In III John 9, John named Diotrephes. 

Jesus called out the false teachers in Matthew 23 and Luke 11.

I truly believe that one reason why God allows false teachers is to provide believers with a test of whether they will be faithful in their Biblical mandate to expose false teachers and thus protect the sheep from the spiritual poison of wolves in sheep's clothing.

Ephesians 5:11 makes it clear we are to expose false teachers; "And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them." 

If a shepherd/pastor will not point out the wolves that are among the sheep then this should be a clear warning to the flock that the shepherd/pastor does not have their best interest in mind. Such a hireling is not called of God but is simply involved in an occupation for personal gain as revealed in I Timothy 6:5.

In addition, such non-shepherds are revealing that they are more interested in their reputation and being seen by the larger community as tolerant and non-judgmental as defined by the unsaved world.

False teachers also give the sheep the opportunity to test the commitment of their shepherds/pastors. If the pastors/shepherds on your church staff fail this Biblical test then it is time for the leaders of the church to replace such hirelings with real shepherds. If this Biblical action is not taken, then it is time for you to find a new flock that has a shepherd that will alert the sheep to the spirituality immature and even wolves in sheep's clothing that are on his own church staff.

Show me a shepherd/pastor that will not name false teachers and I will show you a false teacher.

Pastor Jim Bublitz gives further insight into the positive results that come when we name false teachers by name: 
 

From those words it is clear that God allows teachers of error for the same reason as He does persecutors of His people: to test their love, to try their fidelity, to show that their loyalty to him is such that they will not give ear unto His enemies. Error has always been more popular than the Truth, for it lets down the bars and fosters fleshly indulgence, but for that very reason it is obnoxious to the godly.

The one who by grace can say "I have chosen the way of Truth" will be able to add "I have stuck unto Thy testimonies" (Psalm 119:30, 31), none being able to move him therefrom.

 

"For there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized." (1 Corinthians 11:19).

Committed Christians must publically name false teachers because it is impossible to privately correct public false teaching.

This fall I received an e-mail from a young lady that is a junior in high school near Atlanta, Georgia. In her e-mail she stated that because she had attended two Worldview Weekend Rallies in Atlanta and heard me expose the false teaching of emergent Pastor Rob Bell, she had been equipped to reject his false teaching when a Bible study group at her Christian school decided to read one of his books. She informed me that she immediately recognized the name of Rob Bell and remembered what I had spoken. This young lady had the courage and conviction to politely hand the book back to the group and to warn them of Bell's false teaching.

This young ladies testimony has come to my mind many times this fall and has been a real source of encouragement to me to continue to speak truth no matter how negative or offensive it may be to the non-discerning.

 If I had not named the name of Rob Bell, how would this student had known to reject his book and false doctrine? If I had not named the name of Rob Bell would this student now be spiritually deceived? If I had not named Rob Bell by name would she have been able to warn her peers to this spiritual poison?

The late Pastor Vance Havner wrote, "We live what we believe; the rest is religious talk." Living what we believe includes our willingness to name the name of false teachers and to endure the criticism and persecution that will surely follow. To do any less would be treason to our calling, to our mandate, to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

When we expose false teaching and false teachers we are proclaiming and defending the authority, accuracy, and application of God's Word; the very thing that false teachers seek to undermine. 

Living what we believe requires speaking Biblical truth and Biblical warnings no matter how negative or offensive it may be to the spiritually immature, non-discerning or wolves that crept in among the sheep.

Jude 3:1-4 commands all believers to contend for the faith that is under attack from false teachers.

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Truth is never negative to those who seek to serve The Truth.

Technicality Puts Food-Safety Measure on Ice

A procedural mistake has at least temporarily delayed a food-safety bill approved Tuesday by the Senate that was expected to sail smoothly through the House and be signed into law.

Democrats are looking at several options to get the bill turned into law, aides said, but the House can't approve it "as is" because the legislation contains provisions that allow the government to collect fees.

Those fees are technically considered tax provisions because they raise revenue for the federal government, an aide said, and House rules say tax provisions must originate in the House version of any bill.

A House leadership aide said the food-safety bill would likely have to be wrapped into another measure being considered by the House, then sent to the Senate.

"We are confident that we can work with our House colleagues to find a path forward and get this bill to the president before the end of the year," said a spokeswoman for the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee.

House Version was HR 875

Either way, they will get something out of this draconian legislation.

With all these debates and fuses over taxes between both "parties", Congress would be better off debating the draconian Federal Reserve and how to put a short leash on it.

Let not your heart be troubled Alex. The world will continue to do worldly things till the Lord puts an end to this insanity. Thank you Jesus.

The body of Christ isn't concerned with "freedoms". We are already free. It's the unbelieving that is under bondage, not us. It doesn't matter what the worldly governments pass, because we know that we will have what we need as God sees fit.


"If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:36 (KJB)


"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:" Hebrews 9:27 (KJB)

My mom is very ill-NWO informed(no, don't mean it as an insult or anything), however, a couple of times I tried to educate her about it, and her words were something like, "You need to put your hope and faith in Jesus Christ, God will punish and deal with the wicked, don't worry".

Pt being that her comments are the same as yours, Kilika, and both of you couldn't be more right.

If anything, all these draconian measures being passed, these are obviously a big sign that Jesus' return could be very soon. Ultimately, I'm somewhat disappointed that today's "church" seems to think everything is somehow continuing to get gooder and gooder, and we can have a little fun if we want to. Just showing some biblical balance here.

[size=18]Bible Gateway Now Gateway to Heretical Authors – Could Point Millions to Emerging Teachings[/size]

Prove all things; hold fast to that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22)

For years Bible Gateway has been relied upon for accurate Bible translation.  In 2008, Bible Gateway was purchased by Zondervan Publishing, and for some months now, Bible Gateway’s online General Store has served as gateway to a number of heretical authors.

If that sounds too melodramatic, or harsh, just consider: With over 12,000 sites carrying its link, Bible Gateway is by far the most popular online source for Bible translation.  It is used by those who have been saved for many decades, by brand new Christians, and also by those who are investigating the Christian faith.

Bible Gateway offers this assurance:  “Of course, it’s critical that any advertising on Bible Gateway reflects our Christian values and does not conflict with our mission. That means we carefully screen the ads that appear on Bible Gateway, and we don’t use ads in ways that interfere with your ability to read and study Scripture.” [1]

Unfortunately, through Bible Gateway, new believers or seekers can easily end up with heretical books that may indeed interfere with understanding the Word of God. Against all logic, against all biblical propriety, two of the most heretical, Christ-defying books are offered—without warning—through the Bible Gateway General Store.

It must be noted that Doug Pagitt’s A Christianity Worth Believing, and Brian McLaren’s A New Kind of Christianity are not the only anti-biblical books for sale through the online store. Not by a long shot. We could mention The Shack, Thomas Merton (115 items available!), The Message paraphrase, Tony Jones, Rob Bell, and many others.

For now, however, let us briefly examine these works by emergent leaders Pagitt and McLaren. Both deny the substitutionary atonement of Christ; that Salvation comes solely through Christ; that there is a biblical hell; or that Christ is even necessary for daily forgiveness of sins.

McLaren informs the reader he and others have “dared to tweak” the content of the Word of God. He states, “We might question conventional theories of atonement or the nature and population of hell or whether concepts like original sin or total depravity might need to be modified.” [2]

McLaren also designates Christians who are not shy about calling homosexuality a sin with the derogatory label, “fundasexualists.” [3] As has been stated elsewhere, McLaren is essentially saying that when it comes to opposing homosexual sin, a good Christian is a silent Christian.

So why would Bible Gateway be okay with selling this? Particularly since the site claims “it’s critical that any advertising on Bible Gateway reflects our Christian values and does not conflict with our mission.” [4]

Doug Pagitt’s ode to apostasy, A Christianity Worth Believing, equals McLaren’s book in mutilating the message and meaning of the Bible. Here, according to Pagitt, is how we gain forgiveness for sins: Without Jesus.

He writes, “This can come as a shock to those Christians who are so used to hearing that Jesus is the solution to sin that they assume that the remedy started with the death of Jesus.” [5]

Thus, because of these authors and others, Bible Gateway may not be a safe site to recommend to unbelievers or new Christians or even long-time Christians for that matter. The online General Store may well introduce them to anti-biblical and heretical books.  And consider how many could potentially be affected: With over 12,000 websites recommending or linking to Bible Gateway, if just 2000 people per website, per year go to Bible Gateway’s site, that is a number that exceeds 24 million people. That is a lot of influence.This is not just about people, either—selling heresy is a slap in the face of our Holy God.

Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things; they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the clean and the unclean… (Ezekiel 22:26)

When I contacted Bible Gateway General Manager Rachel Barach about Pagitt and McLaren, her response was rapid. She emailed me:

You’ll be pleased to know that our editorial board has recommended that we request removal of the following from our General and Digital Stores on Bible Gateway:

Doug Pagitt: All Titles

Brian McLaren: All Titles EXCEPT Generous Orthodoxy, Finding Faith, More Ready Than You Realize, Adventures In Missing The Point

The stores, as I mentioned to you previously, are owned and managed by outside parties, so we are at their mercy regarding their actual catalog changes. But we have submitted the requests, and will follow up for prompt attention. [6]

The four McLaren titles mentioned by Barach that they would be keeping are all published by Zondervan, which owns Bible Gateway. Zondervan in turn is owned by secular publishing giant, Harper Collins. But, to date, not one single McLaren or Pagitt book has been removed from the Bible Gateway online General Store.

Not to give her a free pass, but this was never Rachel Barach’s decision to make.  In 2008, when Zondervan purchased Bible Gateway, Zondervan CEO Moe Girkins told an interviewer, “We have a vision that if we create a lot of synergy across all Christian content providers, we can have more impact on the internet.” [7]

Okay, but what kind of impact? Like Bible Gateway, Zondervan’s stated intent is noble:  “To be the leader in Christian communications meeting the needs of people with resources that glorify Jesus Christ and promote Biblical principles.” [8]

But how does having Brian McLaren as contributor to Zondervan’s NIV Men’s Devotional Bible(available as 2010 ebook) serve to “glorify Jesus Christ” when McLaren rejects Christ as Savior? This, and more than seventy other McLaren related works, can be found in Zondervan’s Bible Gateway General Store.

 When Bible Gateway General Manager Rachel Barach stated the Bible Gateway stores “are owned and managed by outside parties, so we are at their mercy regarding catalog changes,” what did she mean? Controlled by Zondervan, the Bible Gateway General Store leads the potential buyer directly onto the christianbook.com site, the largest online catalog of (allegedly) Christian books and materials. Reflecting the synergy Zondervan CEO Moe Girkins referred to, the Bible Gateway General Store’s web address is http://www.biblegateway.christianbook.com

Christianbook.com is blessed with a wonderful history (started by a pastor’s young sons and originally operated out of their home ), but has now strayed from its original purpose.  So much so, in fact, that it probably should not be called christianbook.com at all, but rather something more generic, like “ReligiousReading,” or ”Spiritualitybooks.”

It should be simple. If an author is heretical, or anti-biblical, a “Christian” book seller should have nothing to do with the book. Christianbook.com laments, “The difficulty we face comes in trying to balance our personal views about products that we carry while serving a great variety of customers reflecting the entire spectrum of the Christian market and beyond.” [9]

What it really comes down to is Zondervan, Bible Gateway, and christianbook.com are having their cake and eating it, too. The companies are presented to Christians as if they are solidly Biblical in outlook, and in mission, but in reality they are not above spreading harmful teaching—and even heresy.

 But this is such a small thing, some say.  It’s simply the free exchange of ideas, isn’t it? No, it is not. This goes far beyond disagreements or interpretations within the context of the true, biblical faith.   

Christian talk show host Ingrid Schleuter has recently introduced an interesting term. She refers to people who claim biblical orthodoxy, yet act and associate contrary to stated biblical doctrine, as Bridgers. These are people who are serving to bridge the gap between biblical Truth and false teaching.

Sadly, by promoting not only out-of-the-closet heretics McLaren and Pagitt, but also Tony Campolo, Tony Jones, Rob Bell, and others, these Christian book companies are essentially serving as a bridge for these Bridgers.

LTRP Note: In relation to John Lanagan’s article above, consider the following by Ray Yungen:

In light of the many who will be coming in Christ’s name, I believe the Alice Bailey prophecies can provide further insight into what the apostle Paul called in II Thessalonians the falling away. Bailey eagerly foretold of what she termed “the regeneration of the churches.”  Her rationale for this was obvious:

The Christian church in its many branches can serve as a St. John the Baptist, as a voice crying in the wilderness, and as a nucleus through which world illumination may be accomplished. 

In other words, instead of opposing Christianity, the occult would capture and blend itself with Christianity and then use it as its primary  vehicle for spreading and instilling New Age consciousness! The various churches would still have their outer trappings of Christianity and still use much of the same lingo. If asked certain questions about traditional Christian doctrine, the same answers would be given. But it would all be on the outside; on the inside a contemplative [emerging, new] spirituality would be drawing in those open to it. –Ray Yungen, A Time of Departing, p. 123.

There was a Cowboys player here in the NT area, Quincy Carter, that would almost regularly praise God every time the Cowboys won. But guess what, it was a couple of years later when Carter got caught by the authorities(after he was out of football for a bit) on drugs(something that plagued him in his stay in Dallas).

I mean countless professional sports athletes would profess their faith in Jesus Christ when their teams WIN, but when they LOSE? Nothing, nada, zip. Sometimes you have to wonder if our American Roman Empire government is paying these athletes to say these things.

1Co 9:24  Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
1Co 9:25  And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.
1Co 9:26  I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
1Co 9:27  But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.


Act 5:29  Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.


You know, before I got saved(when I was merely a window shopping-christian), I've always wondered why people like Billy Graham, Pope John Paul II, and Rick Warren got loads of airtime, was loved by the world, and this despite them being born again christian leaders, supposedly, when Christians in general pretty much know that Christians are hated and persecuted by the world. I thought they were great guys at the time because of popular opinion, including that within my church walls...

But yes, you really have to be a good Borean to realize that the true born agains know that their real rewards and eternal life are in heaven in the New Jeruselum, so nothing in this world should disturb them no matter how badly they're treated. May the Lord bless these souls who have risked their lives spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ, as well as exposed who's really behind Mystery Babylon.

Did you just say that? So your calling Christians "idiotic extremists" and "fools"?

Seeing you apparently have no idea as to why Christians would oppose non-Christian material and ideology why are you posting here? This is clearly a Christian board, and your stated position is clearly not Christian. Care to repent and believe the gospel, and be baptized with the Holy Ghost for the remission of your sins?

Just curious. If you think, "...christian fundamentalists are all idiotic extremists and should be regarded as dangerous fools to be kept away from children", then just what do you suppose parents should teach their children? The Holy Bible teaches believers that they should teach their children out of the bible because they believe that is the way to go.


"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6 (KJB)


Bottom line, the Potter series is not Christain, nor is it edifying or expedient for believers in Christ to spend their time nosing around in what the other side is doing. Does not scripture tell us to abstain from all appearence of evil?


"Abstain from all appearance of evil." 1 Thessalonians 5:22 (KJB)

Yep, this is the big problem with today's society - for example, whenever I try to warn others about the Vatican, Rick Warren, Rupert Murdoch, and other wolves in sheep's clothing that's doing what they can to damage the church, I get hit with comments like "Why are you so hateful?", "Warren, Murdoch, and Catholics give so much money to society, shame on you!", "The bible says to mind your own business!", etc, etc.

For the record, I've made it clear to them that it's not like we're required to build up an army with fleshly weapons against these people, we're merely supposed to warn the sheep and flocks about these wolves, and AVOID them. And for that matter too, I've also been hit with comments like "Because we're in the body of Christ, God will shield us from these deceptions, so what's the big deal of looking and reading into their stuff?". Like you said Kilika, we're supposed to abstain from all appearance of evil like the scripture says. If we lie die with dogs, we will get its fleas.

Anyhow, just wanted to throw this out there too, because this seems to be the same attitude with this wicked Harry Potter stuff as well.
28079  General Category / Fellowship / Re: Other good Christian sites and forums. on: November 28, 2010, 08:31:48 am
razberry, just a couple of more comments to add to your last post - if anything, getting banned from RR was probably the biggest blessing the Lord paved the way for me. While it felt very rotten initially, if anything, I ended up making RR's flesh my arm(which a verse in Jeremiah 17 warns about). It was weeks to months after the ban, which is when I ended up finding Scott's teaching on maitreya(by accident, kind of, meaning that I had no idea who Scott was, no had any idea what this maitreya figure, benjamine creme, nor the deceptions around it), and this one teaching alone just woke up my eyes to alot of the deceptions and wickedness going on not only in this world, but in the inner walls of our churches today. Also, it was shortly after that when the Lord pointed me to the 1611 KJV as the TRUE Word of God, which has made a huge difference in my life. And then over the long haul after that, I started listening to more people like DA Waite(whom I got a 1611 KJV from), Pastor Hoggard(another excellent KJV end times watchman), and other of Scott's friends like Pastor Slattery and Adams(who've also exposed the 501c3 corporate ****). So ultimately, the Lord has really opened the doors for me over alot of things. To be honest, I was really never a true studier of the Word of God until someone showed me the errors of the NIV.

If anything, while I agree that we have to look at the events going on in Israel/ME in these last days, RR's big error was that they wanted you to think EVERY SINGLE PROPHECY is in the ME, while we have nothing to worry and think about here in the USA. No, not trying to say that we have to worry and bite our finger nails over FEMA camps, the crashing of the US economy, Obama, etc, etc going on in our soil, but at the same time, it's quite obvious that judgement is coming on the last free enterprise of the world, America. Also, I can't see why chemtrails are "conspiracy theories", because people have gotten sick over the poisons they've sprayed in the air.

So no, while we shouldn't be angry at these cult-controlled web sites like RR, like Kilika said, we really have to use alot of discernment.(ie-Facebook and Twitter are equally bad as well)
28080  General Category / Prayer Requests / Re: Pray that i will not need anti-psychotic drugs on: November 26, 2010, 08:55:53 pm
Thanks for that. The medical industry is corrupt and anti-Christian alot of the time too. The psychiatrist doctor that i used to be under would blaspheme God each time i saw him. There must be some demonic baggage there. Dr Scott Johnson has teachings about sorcery and pharmakeia at http://www.cftresources.com and http://www.contendingfortruth.com

My psychiatrist from many years ago didn't seem like a Christian, however, it wasn't like he was some guy trained in the NWO mystery babylonian schools either.

For the most part, these doctors have been brainwashed in their respective education institutions. Which is why, for the most part, I'm not going to be quick to judge them, but instead, pray for them that they see the light. FWIW, I was in the Accounting field when I went back to school, and this particular field as well did one heck of a job brainwashing students into believing that once they get their CPA, they will be making all kinds of money until the sky's the limit. Yes, having a CPA is a huge plus, but to say you will be some influential millionaire with this license, NOT true. Yes, you will have a nice job and have a good chance for promotions, but to say you will be making all kinds of money is really nothing more than a vain imagination that the bible condemns repeatedly. Yes, I've been very guilty too of drinking the kool-aid brainwashing when I was in school. Personally(just to throw this out there too), I've had trouble finding a consistent job in this field, much less one that pays alot of money.

Anyhow, didn't want to sidetrack this thread, but just wanted to point out that our public school systems et al have done quite a big of damage to our people in pretty much all areas, and it's not just the medical profession. It's as if they've bewitched everyone in every curriculum with all kinds of anti-Christian stuff.
