There were two great heresies that threatened the life of the infant church. The first was Judaism and the second Gnosticism. Many of the New Testament epistles were written to combat these two heresies. Judaism threatened to confine the Christian Faith to sectarianism, by making it a mere Jewish sect, nothing more than an appendage of Judaism itself. If successful, this heresy would have halted the Christian Faith from getting off the ground as God’s universal call to all men everywhere to come to His Son, Jesus Christ, for their salvation.
The second heresy threatening the fledgling church of the New Testament, Gnosticism, was a counterfeit cult of Christianity. It threatened to undermine the teachings ............

Back in 2012, I faced a firestorm in Florida over my refusal to support the presidential candidacy of Mitt Romney. It came from every direction, from fellow Christians, fellow pastors, sister churches, and even denominational leaders. Several people left the church I was pastoring at the time, over my refusal to endorse Romney’s run for the White House. One couple stands out in my mind in particular, since they saw fit to dress me down on their way out the door for my diabolical hand in defeating Romney and destroying America. Yet, I can’t help but think today, what those who once lauded Romney and lambasted me are now thinking.
If you looked up “RINO” in the dictionary, Mitt Romney’s picture should be............

During the presidential campaign, Joe Biden ascribed omnipotent power to the presidency. Of course, he did so in order to blame President Trump for every coronavirus death in America. According to Biden, if President Trump "had done his job, all the people [coronavirus fatalities] would still be alive." Biden added that he was "not making this up," insisting that a "look at the data" would prove to everyone that President Trump had failed to use his godlike powers to prevent American deaths during the coronavirus pandemic.
Interestingly, now that Joe Biden has assumed the presidency, he has suddenly stripped it of the omnipotent power he formerly attributed to it, during the Trump Presidency, by ............

Walter Winchell, the famous syndicated newspaper gossip columnists, was once one of the most feared and powerful men in America. It was believed that Winchell could make or break careers with his column. Yet, he ended up a recluse living in a hotel and handing out typed and mimeographed copies of his column on a street corner. When he died, no one but his daughter attended his funeral.
In Billy Wilder’s famous film, Sunset Boulevard, Norma Desmond is a former silent movie star whose fame has faded into obscurity at the onset of talking pictures. Wilder’s character is characteristic of so many Hollywood celebrities over the years who ended up futilely coveting another curtain call long after the final curtain had come ............

As I posted yesterday, the current COVID-19 vaccine does not foot the bill for the Biblically predicted Mark of the Beast, but could if digital ID is ever added to it and the vaccine itself becomes mandated by our government. If digital ID is added to the vaccine for tracking purposes and the vaccine becomes required by law as a license for conducting personal business in public, then, it will definitely have taken on beastly characteristics. As the Bible predicts, all who refuse to bow before and prove their submission to the image of a sovereign, beastly, and antichrist state at the end of time, by receiving its mandated mark, will no longer be able to conduct personal business in public, such as buying and selling (Revelation 13:16-17).

Recently, I’ve been asked repeatedly about the COVID-19 vaccine, which has prompted this post. Before penning what I believe to be verifiable, I want to admit that it is hard to get to the bottom of anything in today’s upside down world. For instance, our government, as well as our mainstream media and social media, especially our social media platforms, such as Twitter and Facebook, are about as trustworthy as an arsonist with a flamethrower. Digging out the truth from today’s dumpster of compacted lies is a difficult task indeed.
To begin with, let me dismiss concerns that the current vaccine is the Biblically predicted Mark of the Beast. While it is possible, even probable, that a future vaccine for this virus ............

It is no coincidence that Christ was crucified on Golgotha—the Place of the Skull. The Bible teaches us that the battlefield upon which the battle for our lives is fought is in our minds. For instance, the Bible teaches that it is stinking thinking and vain imaginations that keep men from a true knowledge of God, which explains why Scripture also exhorts Christians to bring their every thought into obedience to Christ, lest they be deceived in their minds into disobeying Christ in their lives (2 Corinthians 10:5). Truly, whoever or whatever controls our minds controls our lives.
Whatever we think to be so will effect our minds as if it were so, regardless of whether it's so or not. This is why the Bible teaches: "For............

Here's a little lesson from history, which, as we all know, tends to repeat itself. The following is admittedly a simple and succinct version, not an exhaustive account. Yet, it is true to the essence of what once happened and could very well happen again.
Although the German army did not lose World War I on the battlefield, the German government surrendered to the Allied Powers. Germany's soldiers, therefore, came home from war feeling betrayed by their own government. The prevailing belief was that the government had surrendered under pressure from its financial backers, who were mostly Jewish, because these financiers were fearful that the continuation of the war would cut into their financial profits.

I’m sorry, but I can't climb over Scripture, Spirit conviction. and my own conscience to follow Franklin Graham's counsel. First, I believe it's too late to pray for America. As the Scripture clearly teaches, a nation can pass a point of no return with God, at which point it is too late to pray for that nation (Jeremiah 7:16; 11:14; 14:10-11). Our sinful nation, like sinful Judah, the nation of the Prophet Jeremiah, has exhausted God's patience and ensured itself of inevitable divine retribution.
According to the Bible, a sure sign of spiritual reprobation, that a people have been given up by God to their reprobate minds, is the acceptance, approval, and advocacy of homosexuality (Romans 1:18-32). Our ............

Republicans caved—something for which they’ve proven themselves perpetually and profoundly proficient—in what they themselves declared to be their constitutional duty; namely, objecting to the certification of some states’ Electoral College votes over irregularities and illegalities in those state elections. Their justification for reneging on their self-professed constitutional duty was to defy protestors who unconstitutionally disrupted yesterday’s Capital Hill proceedings by breaching the Capital and breaking into Congress. I guess, in the minds of these reneging Republican ninnies, the unconstitutional behavior of others negates their own constitutional obligations. Thus, to teach unconstitutional ............
