But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

For those who may not know the reasons discerning Christians consider the best-selling book The Shack heretical, Elizabeth Prata of The End Time has some information to share. As Amy Spreeman pointed out in her blog post “The Shack” to be the next blasphemous blockbuster...

Is Christian-themed movie subscription site PureFlix a strategic tool of the New Apostolic Reformation, or does this movie company simply focus on delivering films with a pro-Christian message? I’m about to make a case for the former. We know that one of the hallmarks of the NAR (New...

Wisconsin church reinstates ousted gay pastor

Written by


35 years ago, church elders called out sexual sin and made sure it was not an acceptable practice for its leadership. In one Wisconsin church, it ousted a homosexual pastor. This past weekend, the church not only “repented and apologized,” they welcomed the pastor back to the pulpit,...

The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a dominionist movement that also goes by names like Third Wave, Seven Mountains, Latter Rain, Kingdom Now, Joel’s Army, Manifest Sons of God, Charismatic Renewal, and more.  This week we feature our White Paper on this dangerous counterfeit “Christianity” which asserts that God is

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

Several years ago when Rick Warren promoted the pagan mantra technique of Centering Prayer on his Pastor’s Toolbox site, the post was yanked down when concerned Christians became alarmed and spoke up. Perhaps he was dipping a toe in the contemplative water to see if others would join him in the shallow end of the […]

Ought Christians participate in homosexual celebrations to reach sinners for Christ?  Some will say this is creative and reach people where they are. Others will say that Christians ought not to be like the world to represent the Gospel, and that Jesus never changed his clothes or his eating and drinking habits to reach sinners. […]

Who May Speak, after Orlando?

Certainly not Bible believing Christians!  Immediately after the Islamic terrorist attack inside a bar frequented by homosexuals, the blame was placed on Christians because they allegedly promote hate against the LGBTQGN (GN in anticipation of “gender neutral”) community.  Christians who affirm that all Scripture is God

The rotten fruit of the NAR

By Marsha West To fully grasp all the reasons the New Apostolic Reformation is such a dangerous movement and why discernment bloggers incessantly warn about this cult I’m going to take an excerpt from a piece I wrote a few years ago entitled “Dominionists are on the move…and they mean business.”  I began

When James Dobson announced that a friend of his had led Donald Trump to “accept Christ,”  some questions niggled at my mind – in spite of the fact that I hope Trump is saved – for real. I mean, wouldn’t it be great if Donald Trump really did become a Bible-believing, repentant, Christ-following Christian? I

Bible study author, speaker and blogger Michelle Lesley deals with a very contentious subject: Discernment blogs and podcasts.  Some Christians choose not visit discernment blogs for all sorts of reasons. In her excellent piece, Lesley offers a balanced perspective on the pros and cons of discernment ministries. We were thrilled to learn

They’re Killing Our Culture

Lee Duigon, contributing editor with the Chalcedon Foundation, brings to light some of the insanity that is going on around the globe that discerning Christians need to be aware of.  For example, Germany now has “erotic zoos.”  I’ll let Lee explain what that’s all about. He writes: [NOTE: I have to be careful

By Marsha West When I heard that Jan Crouch died of a massive stroke, to be quite honest, I was not saddened by the news.  Why?  Well, for one thing Jan and her deceased husband Paul promoted the worst sort of heresy imaginable: Word of Faith.  But you wouldn’t find that out by reading the […]

As the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) rapidly grows, its anointed leaders seem to be distancing themselves from the NAR label. Especially now that discernment reporters are shining the light of Scripture on this movement and Christians are beginning to take notice – and question their pastors. One such reporter, Holly Pivek, co-author of A

Aborted babies DO live

Written by

Abortion does one thing: End the life of a human being. A baby that was alive for weeks and months, suddenly and violently murdered.  For abortionists, it’s a clump of tissue that to them was already dead.  But sometimes their own eyes are yanked open by the brutal reality of what they are doing. Newly […]
