Fat, Rich Shepherds

Something is wrong with too many churches in America and it stems from those in leadership positions. For the average person, often, the choice of a church is determined by how much charisma the pastor has and/or how many exciting programs exist for the kids, or how upbeat the music. It may be that only when the specter of real persecution raises its ugly head (which is what God brought to the shepherds of Ezekiel’s day), that people will come to realize the importance of belonging to a church where only the truth is preached weekly without fail. It is the truth of Scripture that produces depth in our relationship with God. If that truth isn’t preached, there is no depth. Too many today have itching ears and want to hear what they want to hear solely because it makes them feel good but provides no true growth (2 Timothy 4:3). It’s pabulum.

Death in Las Vegas

We need to be prepared and the only way to be prepared is to know the Author of Life, God Himself through Christ our Lord. This life is so absolutely temporary. We need to come to terms with that. Some reading this could die before this day ends of natural causes, in an auto accident, or something else entirely. When it comes time for us to pass from this life to the next, we will do so and nothing will stop that. It is predetermined by God, who is Sovereign. We all live and die according to His will and good pleasure.

Current Societal Hysteria is Due to What Exactly?

Because God is truth (Psalm 86:11; John 14:6), truth cannot be destroyed. But what is happening in society right now? Scott Adams – creator of Dilbert – recently wrote an article entitled, “How To Know You’re In a Mass Hysteria Bubble.” Scott has some good things to say and he’s fairly non-emotional about it, which I appreciate (if you’ve ever watched one of his live videos with viewer comments rolling across bottom, you’ll see it). We need more level-headed discussion, but it is few and far between given the fact that today’s AntiFa and average Fascist Leftist is not really interested in discussion. They are wound tightly via their emotion and that is what guides them. As we’ve stated time and time again, emotions should never be used as guides for people because they are extremely deceptive. What might seem like “truth” from your emotions can lead you very easily down the wrong road. The Bible is filled with examples of what happened to people who made decisions based on how they felt about something rather than on the truth of God’s Word.

Proverbs is Filled with Comparisons Between Righteous and Unrighteous

The Bible constantly compares the righteous to the unrighteous. Read the Proverbs or the Psalms to gain a greater understanding of how God sees these two groups. Then ask yourself if you have been declared righteous by God Himself. That can only occur when you place your faith in Christ’s finished work on your behalf. You’re agreeing that you cannot save yourself and only by placing your faith in Jesus can you be saved at all, from an eternity without God. Romans 5:1 tells us, “Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.” We are justified because of faith in God, not because of works (Ephesians 2:8-10).

CNN Producer Admits Russia Story is Fake for Ratings

It’s an eye-opening video, one that will confirm to critically thinking people that the alleged Russia hacking is a created situation to increase ratings and bring down President Trump. It will not, however, convince anyone on the left who believes beyond doubt that the Russians did hack into our election in order to get Trump elected. The whole idea is preposterous since Russia benefited greatly from their dealings with Hillary during the Obama Administration. They would’ve continued to benefit had Hillary become president. Now, there is virtually no benefit for them, which speaks directly against the false notion that they wanted Donald Trump to become president. Makes absolutely no sense and this Project Veritas undercover unmasks the situation as a simply ratings ploy. If it was successful in taking down President Trump, that would’ve been fine with CNN as well.

Why Does a Closer Walk Often Mean Ethereal to So Many?

More Christians need to realize that knowing God is not through ecstatic experiences like speaking in tongues or some emotional high that we are to take as directing our steps. The life of a Christian is often mundane because it involves submitting ourselves to Him and His purposes, which means constantly pushing Self to the rear. This is not fun and anyone who tells you the process is fun may not be doing it right. I can guarantee you from Scripture that Self will do everything it can to be top dog! Paul says we should wrestle with it to subdue it (Romans 8:13; 1 Corinthians 9:27). This is exactly what Jesus did in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was so intense, He sweated great drops of blood (Luke 22:39-46). Try to imagine that and yes, it is an actual medical situation where the stress or tension of a situation can dilate the blood vessels until it appears as though the person is bleeding from the forehead or face.

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.
