Does the Southern Baptist Convention Still Have a Stain On It? by Ed Dingess

What exactly are the SBC leaders doing? What exactly is William McKissic doing? Are we to think that unless the SBC adopts a resolution condemning something as obviously sinful as white supremacy that our members and churches may be deceived into adopting it? I find even the hint of such a suggestion outrageous.

Darkened Thinking Leads Only to Complete Lack of Truth

The subject of “walk-ins” is interesting because it actually lets people off the hook. People are no longer responsible for anything if a “walk-in” has exchanged places with the spirit that was originally housed in their bodies. This is garbage. Even when a person is possessed by demons, the person still has a self-awareness. They are still there. They did not leave their body and move to another place. They were overpowered by demonic activity and those “strong men” now reside in that person with their spirit. Only God can deliver them from that.

Walk-Ins? Really?

The subjects of walk-ins is a deceptive concept. The belief among many within the New Age is that many of our current leaders are “walk-ins”; individual spirits so advanced and who have chosen this specific time to be in adult bodies, that people follow them willingly while ignoring all of the illicit things they do for selfish gain. These leaders are often charismatic (not in the sign gifts sense), and because of it, they tend to mesmerize people. A coming delusion sent by God Himself will ensure this (2 Thessalonians 2:11).

Identity Politics Officially Enters the Southern Baptist Convention

When groups like SBC start believing the lies of the Left, we have a serious break with truth. It’s been a long, slow, steady slide for the SBC, but it appears that they have finally jumped the biblical shark because they are now going after “ghosts” and “goblins” that the Left claims are racist. SBC has bought the lie. Let’s keep tabs on SBC to determine whether or not more people of color will be invited into the vaunted higher positions that mainly white men have held for decades. That would be the proof of SBC’s intentions.

Why Hillsong Music is Dangerous for Your Church by Jeff Maples

Hillsong Church does not exist to preach the Word of God, and to draw people to Christ, bringing glory to His holy name–it exists to draw people to their music, making them money, and giving them power, and giving glory to their man-centered, man-built pseudo-spiritual empire. Brian Houston clearly preaches a false gospel.

Most Difficult Part of Being a Christian

Being a Christian is hard work. It’s not an easy road. It’s only “easy” when we are in complete submission to God and because we continue to have a sin nature even after we’re saved, we war against it. Paul says we must work out our salvation with fear and trembling. It does require effort; effort in prayer, effort in choice, effort in desire. Sometimes, it will require us to fall on our knees, crying out to God begging Him to help us get “over” ourselves and trust Him.

Difficult Roads Often Lead to Beautiful Destinations

Though this life is often filled with storms, difficulties, and problems, the Christian is on the only path that ends well. Christians, due to their faith in God and His extended grace and forgiveness, will end this life with the greatest reward of all. Our path – and only our path – leads to heaven, where God dwells, where we will not only never sin again, but will never even be tempted to sin. The path that we are on is often difficult because it is opposed to the world’s system. That alone creates the drama, the problems, the issues that normally would not be there and will not exist in eternity.
