A Call For Discernment video 1

I understand this video was posted on Youtube with the author’s consent. Please consider purchasing the DVD from the author to show this to friends. This DVD is $10, or 5 for $35.

Pastor Justin Peters has also updated this seminar to include more information. The new DVD “Clouds without Water” is only $20.

I don’t get any commission – I just want to spread the truth. That’s the point of this blog. Spread the truth.


Unable to legally talk

I am unable to legally talk about one religion. A year ago, I spent 30 days examining one religion that is aggressively targeting Christians and Christian blogs. The government warns I cannot respond or face possible (read: probable) prosecution. In the quote below, I have removed the name of the religion and details about it, so that I cannot be accused of criticising or “Posting inflammatory comments.”

So there will be nothing posted online refuting that religion. As such, any comments discussing that religion will not be approved.

From Frontpagemag:

Special speakers for the event will be Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, and Kenneth Moore, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Knoxville Division.
Sponsor of the event is the American ****** Advisory Council of Tennessee — a 15-member board formed two years ago when the General Assembly was considering passing legislation that would restrict those who worship ****** Law, which is followed by *******.
Killian and Moore will provide input on how civil rights can be violated by those who post inflammatory documents targeted at ****** on social media.
“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and  exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told The News Monday. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
Killian said Internet postings that violate civil rights are subject to federal jurisdiction. “That’s what everybody needs to understand,” he said.

From the United States Constitution:

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Pray this situation be resolved by the Lord. That’s all I can ask Bible Believing Christians to do.

100 posts

Should be up to date in the next week or two! I’ll have most of my old blog posts online soon.

And then I should be able to add some new stuff on a regular basis.

Update: Sept. 8 – I’m caught up at this point. the 40 posts per weekend will now slow WAAY down! Everything I’ll be posting at this point will all be new.

How can you support this ministry? Read the blog posts. There you go. It’s that easy.  8 …freely ye have received, freely give. Matthew 10:8 (KJV)

In The Midst Of Apostasy

We no longer need to sneak out to nightclubs to drink and party – why, we can do that right in church!

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity. 2 Timothy 2:19 (KJV)

When I first saw the video, I was shocked. And I could feel a growing anger within me as I watched it.

There was a Cross, on a stage (I won’t say platform) and two men standing by it. There was a nearly naked man with long hair hanging from it as if dead.

And an immodestly dressed woman standing next to the lectern (I will not say pulpit) wearing devils horns and dancing and singing (or lip syncing) the Harlem Shake, as the entire assembly (I will not say church congregation) danced. Not just any dance – it was obscene.

As if triumphing over the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. I seriously do question whether the Lord had long hair or not – but we’re not dealing with that today.

I’d never heard of the Harlem Shake before this. Had no idea, and if I did, I would have paid little, if any, attention.

But to see this done in a place supposedly a church grieved me.

What is WRONG with you people???

Have you no SHAME? Is there NO fear of God in your eyes? did this not seem to be madness to you? Didn’t the evil of it occur to you at ALL???

11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. 13 Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: 14 Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness: 15 Their feet are swift to shed blood: 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways: 17 And the way of peace have they not known: 18 There is no fear of God before their eyes. Romans 3:11-18 (KJV)

I was shocked to find out there was page after page after page of Youtube videos of so-called churches doing the “Harlem Shake”. What Pastor would permit such a thing? Has he taken leave of his senses? That’s the first question I asked myself.

(starts at 29:00 minutes in the video…)

And that wasn’t all. The same video that showed this so-called church taunting the precious death of the Lord Jesus Christ also showed a Pastor- yes, a Pastor – performing what’s called Gangnam Style, some kind of electronic noise and repetitive, minimalistic vocals performed through a vocoder (to give it a robotic sound) – to the accompaniment of lasers and what looked to be tens of thousands of dollars worth of stage lighting performing an elaborate light show. This included moving lights. Not one or two, but many of them. That costs a lot of money.

The pastor up on stage dancing and gesturing as he wore sunglasses and performed this Gangnam style nonsense. Yes, there is the result of at least 3 years of seminary training, I would assume. I hope he did not pay as much for the seminary training as he did for the light show.

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:11 (KJV)

What justification can a pastor give for a church spending what may have been $50,000 to possibly $100,000 worth of lights, not to mention lasers, and expensive sound gear? Certainly that kind of expense was not a one time event! You did not spend that kind of money to purchase all that for a one time event. That means he permitted, if not encouraged, these kind of performances!

What did this have to do with the Gospel? What did it have to do with preaching the sinfulness of man, the divine nature of the Lord Jesus Christ, His life on earth, His willingness to die for us, His scourgings, beatings, and crucifixion? What did it have to do with our Lord’s death, burial, and literal, physical resurrection? What did it have to do with the propitiation for our sins? With the salvation message of the Gospel, with the history of the early churches as recorded in Acts, or the messages of sanctification and Christian discipleship of the Epistles? or the Ultimate Triumph of the Lord Jesus Christ with the Rapture of his Christians, and the pouring out of His wrath upon the Earth, or with His victory at His physical and visible bodily return to the Earth?

Did it not rather have more to do with sensuality, with exaltation of self? This Gangnam style was invented by a misogynistic, violent, anti-American and anti-Christian person. WHY ARE WE DRAGGING THIS TRASH INTO THE CHURCH???

22 For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge. Jeremiah 4:22 (KJV)

This is insanity. I simply cannot understand it. WHY are we tolerating this? We’re seeing this in Baptist churches as well! Is there no longer a Fear of God in the churches? The world does not belong in the church!

Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. Ecclesiastes 8:11 (KJV)

So, what are the words of this “Harlem Shake?” Read, and understand…

Con los terroristas

Ey Shake

Ey Shake

Ey, Ey, Ey, Ey

Shake, Ta. Ta

And do the Harlem Shake

Ey Shake, Ey

Shake, Shake


Shake, Shake, Shake

Con los terroristas

Ey, Con los terroristas

Ey, Ey

Did they stop and think about the words?

“With the Terrorists” or “For the Terrorists”.

Yes, really.

This is a song glorifying Terrorists. And it’s being done to “glorify Jesus.”

No, not at all. This song is done to “glorify terrorists.” Which terrorists, I don’t know. Basque? IRA? Chechnyian? Muslim? It’s in Spanish, so perhaps Marxist terrorists in South and Central America?

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 (KJV)

That doesn’t matter to me right now. What matters is a song glorifying criminals, cowardly murderers, is being brought into churches. So-called churches.

I’m not the Lord. I don’t know when He announces a Church is no longer a Church. I don’t know when “Ichabod” is written above the door, when a church has its candlestick removed. But I bring this up to show – a church can cease to be a church. Do not imagine this kind of rebellion will go unnoticed by the Lord!

For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. 25 When thou shalt beget children, and children’s children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger: 26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. Deuteronomy 4:24-26 (KJV)

If thou shalt hear say in one of thy cities, which the LORD thy God hath given thee to dwell there, saying, 13 Certain men, the children of Belial, are gone out from among you, and have withdrawn the inhabitants of their city, saying, Let us go and serve other gods, which ye have not known; 14 Then shalt thou enquire, and make search, and ask diligently; and, behold, if it be truth, and the thing certain, that such abomination is wrought among you; 15 Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein, and the cattle thereof, with the edge of the sword. 16 And thou shalt gather all the spoil of it into the midst of the street thereof, and shalt burn with fire the city, and all the spoil thereof every whit, for the LORD thy God: and it shall be an heap for ever; it shall not be built again. 17 And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the LORD may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers; 18 When thou shalt hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep all his commandments which I command thee this day, to do that which is right in the eyes of the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 13:12-18 (KJV)

We do not, as New Testament believers do such a drastic event of Deuteronomy 13. I cite it to show that the Lord God has a zero tolerance of such behavior. The question should not be “Why did the Lord kill the sons of Aaron when they offered strange fire?” but rather, “Why doesn’t the Lord kill people today for offering Strange Fire?” The Lord God is merciful beyond comprehension. And I do not know if a believer will be punished for doing such things. I truly doubt a saved person could do such a thing! But I do raise the possibility that if you do such a thing, you may very well have to explain it to God – face to face. In detail. I know I wouldn’t want to explain this.

2 Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: Exodus 23:2 (KJV)

It was bad enough when we started having rock concerts in churches. The atmosphere in rock concerts is definitely not a Godly one. Would you say the rebellious attitude of a Rolling Stones concert belongs in a church? We’re inviting that willingly into Baptist churches.

But what I watched was the atmosphere of a nightclub, which is sensuality based. We no longer need to sneak out to nightclubs to drink and party – why, we can do that right in church!

I hope that line angered. I hope it offended. Because I tell you that’s what happens at nightclubs. And if you drag that atmosphere into churches, it’ll happen there too. We’ve already seen beer and pizza “Communions” at Mars Hill Church!

14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 (KJV)

Here’s the question: Do you really think that the Almighty Lord God, creator of Heaven and Earth, really is pleased with offering this ‘worship’ to Him?

For the LORD thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God. 25 When thou shalt beget children, and children’s children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the LORD thy God, to provoke him to anger: 26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed. Deuteronomy 4:24-26 (KJV)

No, this is not offered to Him. It is instead offered to another god, a false one, the god of the flesh. A false idol. The performance of these profane songs in a church is blasphemous. It is unGodly. It is Idolatry. Why didn’t someone rise up in that church and protest? Probably because the “Purpose Driven Church” plan called for all of them to be cast out long before!

This is where the Purpose Driven Life leads to! The offerings of strange fire to the Lord!

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it. 15 The eyes of the LORD are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. 16 The face of the LORD is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth. Psalm 34:14-16 (KJV)

We’ve lost the Fear of God. Don’t you know who God is? I think we confuse God and Santa Claus. “God was with us that night! I really felt Him move! And the music was kickin’!”

I suppose that depends on whom your God is! But the God who Created the Universe, the Holy God of the Bible is awesome. I recommend you reflect on the words “Omnipotent. Omnipresent. Omniscient.” look up those three words and really reflect on them. Then ask if your profane dance was really pleasing to that God?

If I’d been there, I’d have been screaming “Repent!” at the top of my lungs. I am ashamed that the people doing this consider themselves Christians. Ashamed. Truly. I find myself repenting for not taking God seriously enough!

Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Isaiah 1:16 (KJV)

Think about the feel of this blasphemy I’m discussing. is this of God? Or of Satan? The prideful look on the pastor’s face as he did his Gangnam style performance – “This is about ME!!! Look how cool I am!”

Repent, ye blasphemers.

For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 1 Peter 3:10-12 (KJV)

We are saved out of the world – we are no longer to be part of it. At best, these are Christians that are horribly backslidden – because I can’t imagine Bible-true Christians doing this. Even worldly Christians would be bothered by this. The most likely response is – these people aren’t saved.

I’ve been warning against the coming of the one-world apostate church that the Antichrist would seize control of, as a means of catapulting himself into power. Well, guess what? It’s here. Ecumenism reveals its bitter, rancid fruit… an apostate, worldly church, given to all manners of fornication and uncleanness – and seeing nothing wrong with it. If you can stomach it, watch the video. I don’t necessarily agree with everything Nephtali says, but he’s right about most of what’s on this video.

1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)

Repent, ye blasphemers.
