"This is a very big deal," Vines says of Hatmaker. "I hope and expect that we'll hear more from her in the weeks and months to come, and that she'll explicitly affirm bisexual and transgender people as well."Read More

PureFlix Entertainment bills itself as family-friendly entertainment, as a Christian alternative to Netflix and other movie channels. It’s branded tagline: “No Language, Sex or Violence Surprises.”
And yet there is a strong warning with its new promotional release of the 2013 movie, Divination:
"Divination is a spiritual warfare thriller like no other you’ve seen. PARENTAL WARNING: Spiritual warfare. NOT FOR CHILDREN. Spiritual forces collide in a supernatural battle between good and evil."Read More
Evangelist Billye Brim is a name known in many charismatic circles. Her story of an angelic encounter telling her to ignore Scripture and preach to men has enthralled many over the years, and now she's getting buy-in from an expanded audience reach.
And what is she preaching? The "Kingdom Power" that can be yours if you would just do one thing. (Talk about a click-bait tease.)Read More
Thanks to the multi-million dollar Jesus Calling product line, you can cuddle up with a syncretized blend of heresy with God's breathed-out Word. First adorning Christian bookstore and church library shelves in 2011, Publisher Thomas Nelson calls this "part of the Signature Series line of Thomas Nelson Bibles, and describes this atrocity here:Read More
Using my bunny ears and my softest kitten voice, I want to talk today about “discernment bloggers.” Are these bloggers following a biblical mandate? Are they generally mean-spirited folks? Should we be reading them, and if so, how often?Read More
Little lambs, you are conflicted. You see your nation going by way of darkness, as if every God-hating group with an agenda is in the driver’s seat, driving the nails into the coffin of a nation you hardly recognize anymore. America is a corpse of its former self.
And then you find 2 Chronicles 7:14...Read More
“For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” — 2 Timothy 4:3-4Read More
Have you ever tried to contend for the faith within your own church, only to be told that you're probably not a good fit and should move on? Yes, that has happened to many of us, and though it may seem like it, you are not alone.Read More
The 2016 Global Leadership Summit kicks off this week, and many if not most of its Christian pastoral speakers, like T.D. Jakes, have been the subject of controversy, flagged as those who have been promoting or teaching unbiblical doctrines.Read More
Can you judge a book by its cover? If the statements made by a biblical teacher are to be biblical, than perhaps we ought to be Bereans to examine said cover. The often-controversial Rabbi Jonathan Cahn has published a new book titled, The Book of Mysteries, that comes out in hardcover soon, and already there are three rather interesting declarations we are going to examine.Read More
Time and time again, we see pastors and elders who are grieving over the yeast they see spreading through their denominations and into their own sanctuaries. This is part of the great falling away Jesus warned about, but many never believed it could hit so close to home. It can and it does. Sadly but predictably, many who attempt to stop or expose the creeping darkness with the light of Truth are swiftly silenced with a stern warning not to speak, or worse: they lose their positions.Read More

There are 435 members of our U.S. Congress. Apparently 52 of them said the sinner's prayer with (NAR) New Apostolic Reformation pastor Rodney Howard Browne, during the recent Celebrate America 2016 event in Washington, D.C. If you're a numbers person, that's roughly 12 percent of our U.S. Representatives who are reportedly "baby Christians."Read More
Early in Sunday's 9:15 a.m. service, Executive Pastor Shane Duffey announced that Noble had been removed as pastor on July 1, after the NewSpring board of directors had "made a difficult and painful decision" to make a change.
Duffey said the termination by the state's largest and richest church came after Noble "had made unfortunate choices," and that the board members had confronted Noble on numerous occasions regarding his use of alcohol.Read More
A few years ago a friend shared an excellent 15-minute documentary that exposes The Circle Maker's pagan practices once and for all. I highly recommend you watch it, and share it with those in your circles (sorry!), who are caught up in Christian mysticism.
You'll be fascinated to hear from those who call themselves witches who are excited about this book, recognizing their practice of “casting a circle,” three times, around an object, person or desire. Be sure to notice at about eight minutes in the similarities between the Circle Maker, the Narnia-Prince Caspian scene and Oprah’s promotion of the book, The Secret.Read More
