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

Red Light: False Prophet Alert

Written by

I feel it necessary to call your attention to a charismatic pastor who is beginning to draw in an ample amount of spotlight.  This pastor’s name is Shawn Bolz.  (I’d like to tip my hat to Wallace Revels for introducing me to this man, for if he had not shared a video of Bolz on Facebook and warned his readers to

Did Todd Bentley REALLY Raise the Dead? Featured

Written by

On Facebook this week, a friend posted a video supposedly showing Todd Bentley, of Lakeland Outpouring fame, purportedly raising a man from the dead in Pakistan.  I’m going to attempt to season this post with as much grace as possible, for there are many things I could say in the heat of the moment that would render any sense I could

I was browsing Twitter and came across this gem retweeted by “Progressive Christianity” darling, Rachel Held Evans.

Now Evans has made it a point to distance herself from biblical Christianity as taught in the bible; instead, she chooses to adopt a position that questions biblical salvation and the authority of Scripture.  She is

Caught in the Cross Hairs

Written by

Discernment blogging can be a thankless task sometimes.  Well, more often than you think.  We expect to take fire from the people we feature on our blogs, but sometimes the “good guys” take aim at us.

The following article is from blogger Marsha West, and she discusses this issue more in depth.  I’ll post a snippet
