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.

God’s Sovereignty and It’s Impact on the World

Had this problem remained simply between Mordecai and Haman, God may not have stepped into resolve anything, but Haman not only wanted to kill Mordecai (by hanging him on a gallows built specifically for him, standing roughly 75 feet high), but Haman extended this to include the entire culture of Jewish individuals as we learn in chapter 3. Certainly, God would not stand for that and He didn’t. It doesn’t matter whether it was Pharaoh during Moses’ day, Hitler during ours, or Haman during the time of King Ahasuerus. Anyone who wants to act as Satan and destroy all of the Jewish race will have to answer to God Himself.

LeClaire spills ink over ‘sneaky squid spirit’ attack?

“For, in the first place, when you come together as a church, I hear that there are divisions among you. And I believe it in part, for there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized.”
1 Corinthians 11:18-19

In this article you see a classic demonstration that Pentecostalism and Charismaticism are in fact enemies of each other.  The Pentecostal AOG in America condemned the New Order of the Latter Rain (NOLR) (now known as the Charismatic Renewal Movement (CRM) /New Apostolic Reformation (NAR)) for one of six practices:

“RESOLVED, That we disapprove of those extreme teachings and practices which, being unfounded Scripturally, serve only to break fellowship of like precious faith and tend to confusion and division among the members of the Body of Christ, and be it hereby known that this 23rd General Council disapproves of the…

Is Processed Food Really Food?

Lab technicians have devised a way to make things that would likely taste terrible, taste good. How? It’s all those “natural and artificial flavorings” routinely added to processed foods. If your taste buds can be tricked into thinking that you are tasting actual chicken, then your brain tells you that what you’re eating IS chicken and it’s all good!

Standing Still and Watching God Work is Difficult

That is a tall order for any God-fearing person, isn’t it? It is very difficult sometimes to stand still and do nothing else. But in this case, their standing still would be evidence of their complete faith and trust in God and His promised victory! Sometimes, standing still is the only thing we can do when we are not sure of God’s will. However, God revealed His will to the people through Jahaziel. God told them what He was going to do and because of what He was going to do, the people should simply stand and watch God work.

It’s Dangerous to be Conservative These Days

The Bible is clear about the problems we face in society today. It stems from the downward spiral created by people opposed to God and His truth (Romans 1). Paul warns us in several places in the New Testament that these last days will bring terrible times. We are seeing it and the Bible seems to indicate that things will get worse before they get better.

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.
