A regrettable decision to “dialogue” with spiritually deadly error

June 21, 2017

I’ve spent a bit of time on this particular issue lately. Tom of excatholic4Christ has written an excellent post which mirrors my position on this topic. I must add a link to a Youtube channel where I first heard about this issue. I’ve had to criticize the young Christian apologist Keith Thompson for a picture he put up with one of his videos on this topic but I think Keith is correct about the main issue. Tom confronts the same issue in his post.

Thanks to Chris at Wings of the Wind for his indirect contributions to this post.

In my last “Weekend Roundup” post, I commented on a recent “dialogue” session held in Idaho featuring evangelical and Mormon apologists. The purpose of that dialogue was to promote understanding between the two “parties” and find common ground. Argh! I’m definitely of the opinion that evangelical apologists should debate false religionists rather than dialogue with them. Accommodation and cooperation with error are slippery slopes that always lead to compromise and betrayal of the Gospel. Try to imagine the apostle Paul endeavoring to dialogue with the priests of 1st-century Roman paganism in order to benefit “mutual understanding and respect.” Imagine, if you can, Charles Spurgeon, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, John R. Rice, or James R. White having dialogue sessions with clerics of false religions. Stop the tape! James R. White? I should definitely rewind that statement in…

“There brake He the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.”

“There brake He the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.”
Psalm 76:3

Our Redeemer’s glorious cry of “It is finished,” was the death-knell of all the adversaries of his people, the breaking of “the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.” Behold the hero of Golgotha using his cross as an anvil, and his woes as a hammer, dashing to shivers bundle after bundle of our sins, those poisoned “arrows of the bow;” trampling on every indictment, and destroying every accusation. What glorious blows the mighty Breaker gives with a hammer far more ponderous than the fabled weapon of Thor! How the diabolical darts fly to fragments, and the infernal bucklers are broken like potters’ vessels! Behold, he draws from its sheath of hellish workmanship the dread sword of Satanic power! He snaps it across his knee, as a man breaks the dry wood of a fagot, and casts it into the fire. Beloved, no sin of a believer can now be an arrow mortally to wound him, no condemnation can now be a sword to kill him, for the punishment of our sin was borne by Christ, a full atonement was made for all our iniquities by our blessed Substitute and Surety. Who now accuseth? Who now condemneth? Christ hath died, yea rather, hath risen again. Jesus has emptied the quivers of hell, has quenched every fiery dart, and broken off the head of every arrow of wrath; the ground is strewn with the splinters and relics of the weapons of hell’s warfare, which are only visible to us to remind us of our former danger, and of our great deliverance. Sin hath no more dominion over us. Jesus has made an end of it, and put it away forever. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end. Talk ye of all the wondrous works of the Lord, ye who make mention of his name, keep not silence, neither by day, nor when the sun goeth to his rest. Bless the Lord, O my soul.

C.H.Spurgeon

Todd Friel on Bernie Sanders’ explosion on a Christian who believes Jesus is the only way

June 10, 2017

Thank you for this, Pastor Jim. The scriptures you have chosen fit this situation so well. It, indeed, says something about our culture that Bernie got so much support in his campaign for president. I would guess a very low percent (maybe 1%) of those supporting Bernie have ever lived under fascism or socialism. If they had for any length of time, they would be like the Romanians who experienced Nicolae Ceaușescu and his evil wife. They can tell you what 42 years of “Communist” rule looks and feels like. Oh, some things about these systems of government may sound good at first, but, in the end, the people revolt or are given few freedoms.

The Domain for Truth

Bernie is a Liberal Fascist.

I shudder to think Bernie Sanders was a Presidential Candidate.

Todd Friel of Wretched Radio takes on Bernie Sanders’ rant biblically and logically below:

Senator Bernie need to hear about the ultimate Judge whom he would sit in the dock one day and face and what He has to say about Jesus:

Demons in Norway

May 23, 2017

Picture by Nathan Castle

I try not to give evil too much publicity but today I feel it is necessary. Are there evil forces in the world?
I don’t think you have to be a believer in the Bible to see the spread of evil across the world in our day. Yet, as a Christian, there are these verses:

“Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.”

For weeks this blog shared this video at least once a week because I believe we live in a time of great spiritual conflict:

And then came the story of Nadia and Caspian. A young mother had her child stolen by the “Child Protective Services” of Norway.

The situation convinced me even more that the great spiritual conflict that is taking place is worldwide. I spent months following that story as many of you know.

I have used the word “evil” many times both here and on Facebook to describe events going on in Norway. The accuracy of my statements were never in doubt in my mind. Now, I am not only hearing about children being stolen in Norway. There are also stories of strange events like those that accompany demonic activity. I believe they are evil forces. There is no other explanation for the things I am now hearing about in a nation that once held to Christian theology. The interesting thing is, it appears that Christians are not the only ones who recognize this. Things are so bad there that those who aren’t Christians are calling the situation evil. Some who have not really given great thought to spiritual things in the past are noticing strange phenomena that can only be called “spiritual.” It is not a good kind of spirituality. It has all of the characteristics of demonic oppression.

I am not new to this topic. I have posted about it before. It is interesting that a post here that addresses this issue features a Lutheran man. He is a member of the church I grew up in, The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. It is a Christian denomination that holds to Biblical truths better than any other Lutheran group that I’m aware of. It is certainly holding to Biblical truth more than the Lutheran Church of Norway.

The post is called DEMONS IN TODAY’S WORLD. It is a commentary about demonic activity abroad and in the U.S. Christians tend to avoid the issue for many reasons but I believe it will only become more prevalent in the near future. I do not fear because God has already won the battle.

One of the Norwegian’s whom I respect who has been experiencing these strange occurrences in Norway has mentioned that Psalm 23 has given him comfort.

A Psalm of David.

Psalm 23

The Lord is my shepherd,

I shall not want. (I shall not be in want.)

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.

3 He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

What wonderful words: “I fear no evil, for You are with me;”

If you wish to know a bit more about this subject, click on DEMONS IN TODAY’S WORLD. The statements of Dr. Robert Bennett are not radical; they are Biblical.

May the Lord bless and protect my Norwegian friends.

Never Alone ~

May 14, 2017

Many of you know that recently my father passed out of this world. I have been trying to put up a video that was shown at his funeral celebration. The video includes family pictures throughout the years. I have been unable to accomplish this due to either lack of technical skill or a lock on the DVD I’m trying to load. No matter. My point is that this poem from Deborah Ann explains why I have been given a peace that passes all understanding during this time. I will see my father again and will get to spend as much time as I like with him.

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

in your hearts by faith;

He’s Alive!

April 16, 2017

Photo from “The Hope Blog”

Published today on Ingrid Schlueter’s “The Hope Blog:”

This is from the 6th Century Christian hymn, “At the Lamb’s High Feast We Sing.”

At the Lamb’s high feast we sing,
Praise to our victorious King,
Who hath washed us in the tide
Flowing from his pierced side;
Praise we Him, whose love divine
Gives His sacred blood for wine,
Gives His body for the feast,
Christ the Victim, Christ the Priest.

Where the Paschal blood is poured,
Death’s dark angel sheathes his sword;
Israel’s hosts triumphant go
Through the wave that drowns the foe.
Praise we Christ, whose blood was shed,
Paschal Victim, paschal Bread;
With sincerity and love
Eat we Manna from above.

Mighty Victim from the sky,
Hell’s fierce powers beneath Thee lie;
Thou hast conquered in the fight,
Thou hast brought us life and light;
Now no more can death appall,
Now no more the grave enthrall;
Thou hast opened Paradise,
And in Thee Thy saints shall rise.

Paschal triumph, Easter joy,
Only sin can this destroy;
From sin’s death do Thou set free
Souls reborn, O Lord, in Thee.
Hymns of glory and of praise,
Father, to Thee we raise;
Risen Lord, all praise to Thee,
Ever with the Spirit be.


CHILDREN ABDUCTED BY “CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES”

April 9, 2017

These are true stories, four of which have been covered to different degrees on this blog.

I hadn’t looked at the Baby Aria and her family website for awhile. I found this video at the top of the site today. One of my friends in the effort to educate the world about the horrific problem of child snatching by “authorities,” Ken Olsen, was recently published in a Norwegian media source. His article can be found HERE.

Please continue to pray for Ken, Nadia, Amy, Eugene and others like them.
