Letter From Missionary Pastor and Fawn Photo

I shot this fawn at a local park

I request prayer for Christian women everywhere to dress in feminine, discreet, and modest (shamefaced) apparel that is not low, short or tight. We, as women, must dress in chaste apparel in order for men to look upon us in all purity as sisters in obedience to the Word of God (1 Tim. 2:9 and 5:1-2, 1 Cor. 11:5, 1 Peter 3:1-2).  I pray this for myself as well. I often ask my husband if my attire is modest.

Edited letter to me and other women from missionary pastor:

One of the main comments he makes: “Do you know that I as a preacher I have had to turn my eyes from seeing up a dress when I have stood up to preach or have had to look else where to not look at a sister’s back, stomach or chest?”

Dear sisters in Christ,

Thank you for taking the time to read the following. I have a burden on my heart, as one that will have to give account for you before God on the last day as Heb13:17.

On Sunday we studied the question if we are growing in holiness to be more like Christ and less like the world. In the discussion it was brought out that we have fallen from where we were and instead of being more holy we are become more like the world. This is very serious in light of 2Pet.3:17,18

In light of these scriptures, our present situation in the Church and the responsibility I have before God I would like to ask you to prayerfully answer the following questions.

My goal is not to have you please men (Gal.1:10) but God. I know that the flesh, the world and the devil are working day and night to make you sin in this area and I hope this article will help you fulfill the desire of your heart to please God daily as He looks from heaven at His godly daughters.

A true Christian is called to deny him self take up his cross and follow Christ in every area of his life. Have you done this in your way of dress?

Do you believe that the way you are dressing today in comparison with when you first confessed Christ as Lord is more godly, more modest? Does your dress reflect a growth in that meek and quite inner spirit of Christ that is of great value before God? 1Pet.3:5

Does your dress correspond with that of a holy woman that professes godliness?

Do you believe that it is godlier to dress in a way to draw more attention to you face than to your body?

Do all the clothes you use fulfill this goal?

Is it godlier to wear loose fitting clothes or tight ones to show the form of your body?

Generally speaking is it more godly to wear simple looking clothing than fancy or costly clothing?

Has your way of dress been a testimony to others giving you an opportunity to share your faith?

To unbelievers does you dress reflect more godliness, Christ likeness,__ or worldliness__?

Should a godly Christian woman dress in any way that could possible cause a brother to be tempted in any way to think of her body?

Are you aware of the fact that many brothers all over the world (according to the knowledge that I have gained working with men) have problems when they see a sister with tight clothing or clothing that doesn’t properly cover their legs and chest and some times even arms?

Do you know that many brothers who fight with all the visual temptations around them on the street do not want to have to fight with the same thing in the church, as one brother said “he had to look up at the ceiling or at the floor”?

Do you believe that God would testify that you are dressing the way he has said you should dress in 1Tim.2:9,10 and 1Pt.3:4,5.

Do you believe that for a woman to wear a bathing suit (one peace or two peaces) is dressing modestly when she is before men or brothers in the Church?

God says that whatever is not of faith is sin, Rom.14:23 Do you dress in faith, with conviction, never changing your moral standard no matter who you are with or what your circumstances are ? Never change__ Seldom __ Often__

Do we still believe that it is an abomination to God for men to dress in women’s clothes or women to dress in men’s clothes as He wants a distinction between the sexes. Deut 22:5

If you think that this principle has changed could you please give some scripture that makes you think that way. ________

Rom. 12:1,2  Have you personally sought not to be conformed to the world in the way you dress?

In sincerity who do you think has had more influence over you in the clothing you use God’s word ___ other Christians___ the world___?

Have you studied the scriptures on this subject to have you mind freed from the world’s mentality to be able to think as our Holy Father thinks concerning the godly way He wants His daughters to dress?

How often have you given way to you flesh, to the pride of life to dress immodestly and sin against God? Never__ seldom__ often__

Have you given into the temptation to be a friend of the world to dress in a way that seeks more the approval of the world? Never___ Seldom___ Often___

Have you made your self as James says an enemy of God?

As God is a jealous God do you think that you have provoked Him to jealousy more than once by dressing more to gain the worlds admiration that His. Sometimes___ Never___

If you have sinned against God in this area are you willing to take time to prayerfully remove all clothing from your house that could cause you to stumble at a weak moment in your life?

Have you seen other sisters dress immodestly or in a worldly manner? Have you prayed for them, talked to them and tried to help them? If you didn’t admonish them was it because you feared their reaction? Or was it because you haven’t always been a good example?

If a sister doesn’t want to obey what the elders teach on modesty or doesn’t agree with it what should she do? 1. For the good of the church submit with all her heart as Heb.13:17 says.___ 2. Talk with the elders about her convictions.___ 3. If she still has no peace then with the counsel and blessing of the elders go to another assembly where she is more fully in agreement.___

The Emerging Church—What it is

The Emerging Church Facts

Please watch these videos:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGSQjtWTpaw&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkhq0R0TIyM
The hippie-like emerging church is moving in power and its philosophies are being slyly introduced into so-called Biblical Christianity. It actually has been reaching in and taking hold for many years. This is a demonic movement that has loomed out of hell. It has no problems with satanism, New Age, Catholicism, Episcopalism, etc. It also covets diversity and affirming mandates. It seems anything goes.

As I write my Revelation commentaries, I can see the church slowly entering the religious realm that will someday fight against the Christ of the Bible—who is completely chaste, pure, undefiled, harmless, separated from sinners and made higher than the heavens; Hebrews 7:26. This emergent, ecumenical religious body, foreseen in Revelation, will be he heathenistic, worshipping countless false gods as Israel did in her apostasy being documented in the books of Jeremiah, Isaiah, etc. Israel was condemned for displaying more false gods than the pagan nations that surrounded her. The church seems headed in that same direction.

The church today wants to mirror a Hollywood mentality. It is the avenue that unveils every new contemporary way. Even Christians will turn to it to see how they should be acting, what they should be wearing and what new lingo should be flowing from their lips.

It is no wonder the church wants all people coming in its doors to see a new look—a Christianity that implements the best of productions…videos that entertain more than they preach convicting truth if any truth is presented.

The church of today relishes explaining Christ to an audience that loves the satanic sensual realm, people who love mystical (demonic) books and movies with “sexy” included. Today’s contemporary church presents an apostate Jesus for all to enjoy. The true Jesus Christ hates Hollywood’s worldly productions. He hates the fact the church desires to imitate this state-of-the-art fanfare. He hates the fact pastors want to refer to the entrainment business in their sermons in a positive way. These so-called men of God want to use television programs and movies to get a point across while attempting to entertain at the same time. They want to be one with their entertaining-loving congregation. They do not want to be different. They do not truly fear and tremble before God.

The LORD hates all sin and He hates this realm that does not uplift His holy name with His holy, innocent and pure ways.

The church does not present a Christ who was despised and hated of men. A Christ who was the song of drunkards and the object of gossip because He taught holy righteousness and separation; Psalm 69:12f. Jesus Christ was not a Hollywood star nor was He a rock star nor did He desire to be. He walked the hated road of separation. He was totally separated from man’s desires for fame and popularity. His kingdom was not of this nasty world.

Many believers are into pornography and movies that show skin. Today’s church attendees relish the thought that everyone can come to church as they are. Many men (including pastors and teachers) of the church like women dressing provocatively. They like a bit of cleavage showing and it shows in most every church today. It wasn’t that long ago that such a thing was viewed as disgraceful.

Our churches need Biblical change not emergent change. Fellowships need to throw out the false Jesus of sensuality, and move in the true Christ of holy righteousness. The Christ of innocent chastity.

For churches to make a positive change, pastors and leaders need to follow all the instructions for the church structure, exhibited in the books of Timothy, Titus, 2 Peter, Jude, Ephesians, etc. They must focus on the true Jesus Christ who never lies nor does His holy, inerrant provided Word.

They must throw off the emergent social mandates. He calls churches to preach, teach the Word, evangelize, pray, perform communion, minister and to humbly sing hymns and spiritual songs. God made the church simple. He does not call for community incentives to raise money through silly fundraisers. All church monies are simply to be collected from those who give cheerfully on the first day of the week.

Adding to the church mandates is pharisaical. Christ condemned the religious leaders as they added their own traditions to Scripture. Pastors feel they have to add program upon program. When one program fizzes out, they add another. And every silly program has to have a theme to catch the attention of a floating congregation. Getting back to the simple commands is the only answer no matter the dwindling congregation. Actually, it would probably become most blessed if every way was followed.

It is not about numbers; however, it is about evangelism and the harvest is plentiful. But it is not man who gives the increase it is God. Remember Christ did not need any rock group and fun comedians. It is totally blasphemous to imagine such a thing. He never implemented music as he spoke nor did the apostles. He left no example to entertain and leave an audience in awe. We are to follow His example totally, not man’s, not Hollywood, and not the emerging church exampled.

The church is a complicated socialized structure of the emergent mindset. It is in trendy “conversation” with the world, when it is to be alienated from the world. We are strangers and aliens on this earth. The church is not to mingle in the social stream of a community church. The church is not of the community of men, it is of the realm of God alone. We are to be separate from satan’s children. We are the called out ones. We are not one flowing river of social reform. We are not a “village” of one-mindedness with the globe. We do not engage in “peer to peer” dialog with those who have not been born again. We have nothing in common with the unsaved outside of normal life behaviors. Our true family is of the true saints, not those who curse our Savior. Satan is the father of blasphemes and the nations that blaspheme Christ, being made clear in Revelation chapter 13. The emerging church is a blasphemous church that will manufacture more strength when satan moves to center stage on a gigantic scale when the apocalypse reaches nearer.

We should not want to partake of the contemporary experience. We are called to the ambassador role in total humility. We are not to conform to the culture that surrounds as if we were one in the same. Our calling is not humanitarianism, it is evangelism.

May the apostate emerging church wake-up and reach upward for truth.

In Him who warns of every wayward way taught in the church today,

Val Lee (It is my heart to follow the apostles’ example.  For many walk according to what they think or have experienced or what others think or have experienced. This hurts my heart and such actions made Paul and the other apostles weep. We are to walk according to their example and teachings without questioning; 1 Corinthians 11:1, 2 Thessalonians 2:15, 2 Peter 3:2 and Jude 17. Those who do not are enemies of the cross of Christ, whose end is their destruction, whose god is their appetite, and whose glory is their shame, who set their minds on earth things; Philippians 3:17-19)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emerging_church

Wickipedia edited:

The emerging church (sometimes referred to as the emergent movement) is a Christian movement of the late 20th and early 21st century that crosses a number of theological boundaries: participants can be described as evangelical, post-evangelical, liberal, post-liberal, charismatic, neocharismatic (both Pentecostal and charismatic) and post-charismatic. Participants seek to live their faith in what they believe to be a “postmodern” (meaning after the modernist movement. A style and concept in the arts characterized by distrust of theories and ideologies and by the drawing of attention to conventions) society—a new cultural society. Proponents of this movement call it a “conversation” to emphasize its developing and decentralized nature, its vast range of standpoints and its commitment to dialogue.

The emerging church favors the use of simple story and narrative not strong Scriptural charging. Members of the movement often place a high value on good works or social activism, sometimes including missional living or new monasticism (commune or monastery). Many emergents emphasize the here and now.

Some have noted a difference between the terms “emerging” and “Emergent.” Whilst emerging is a wider, informal, church-based, global movement, Emergent refers to an official organization, the Emergent Village, associated with Brian McLaren, and has also been called the “Emergent stream.”

Emerging churches can be found throughout the globe, predominantly in North America, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa. Some attend local independent churches or house church labeled “emerging” while others worship in traditional Christian denominations.

Dr. Stuart Murray states:
It will bring together the most helpful of the old and best of the new, blending the dynamic of a personal Gospel with the compassion of social concern. It will find its ministry being expressed by a whole people, wherein the distinction between clergy and laity will be that of function, not of status or hierarchical division. In the emerging Church, due emphasis will be placed on both theological rootage and contemporary experience, on celebration in worship and involvement in social concerns, on faith and feeling, reason and prayer, conversion and continuity, the personal and the conceptual.

The emerging church seeks a post-Christendom approach to being church and mission through: renouncing imperialistic approaches to language and cultural imposition; making ‘truth claims’ with humility and respect; overcoming the public/private dichotomy; moving church from the center to the margins; moving from a place of privilege in society to one voice amongst many; a transition from control to witness, maintenance to mission and institution to movement.

In the face of criticism, some in the emerging church respond that this it is important to attempt a “both and” approach to redemptive and incarnational theologies. Some Evangelicals and Fundamentalists are perceived as “overly redemptive” and therefore in danger of condemning people by communicating the Good News in aggressive and angry ways. A more loving and affirming approach is proposed in the context of post-modernity where distrust may occur in response to power claims. It is suggested that this can form the basis of a constructive engagement with twenty-first century post-industrial western cultures. According to Ian Mobsby, the suggestion that the emerging church is mainly focused on deconstruction and the rejection of current forms of church should itself be rejected.

The emerging church is a response to the perceived influence of modernism in Western Christianity. As some sociologists commented on a cultural shift that they believed to correspond to postmodern ways of perceiving reality in the late 20th century, some Christians began to advocate changes within the church in response. These Christians saw the contemporary church as being culturally bound to modernism. They changed their practices to relate to the new cultural situation. Emerging Christians began to challenge the modern church on issues such as: institutional structures, systematic theology, propositional teaching methods, a perceived preoccupation with buildings, an attractional understanding of mission, professional clergy, and a perceived preoccupation with the political process and unhelpful jargon (“Christian-ese”).

As a result, some in the emerging church believe it is necessary to deconstruct modern Christian dogma. One way this happens is by engaging in dialogue, rather than proclaiming a predigested message, believing that this leads people to Jesus through the Holy Spirit on their own terms. Many in the movement embrace the missiology that drives the movement in an effort to be like Christ and make disciples by being a good example. The emerging church movement contains a great diversity in beliefs and practices, although some have adopted a preoccupation with sacred rituals, good works, and political and social activism. Much of the Emerging Church movement have also adopted the approach to evangelism which stressed peer-to-peer dialogue rather than dogmatic proclamation and proselytizing.

A plurality of Scriptural interpretations is acknowledged in the emerging church movement. Participants in the movement exhibit a particular concern for the effect of the modern reader’s cultural context on the act of interpretation echoing the ideas of postmodern thinkers such as Jacques Derrida and Stanley Fish.

Therefore a narrative approach to Scripture, and history are emphasized in some emerging churches over exegetical and dogmatic approaches (such as that found in systematic theology and systematic exegesis), which are often viewed as reductionist. Others embrace a multiplicity of approaches.

Some leaders in the movement publicly welcome open discussion with other religions regarding the definition of Christian faith. Others in the movement label the practice differently, calling the interfaith dialog a means to share their narratives as they learn from the narratives of others. Some Emerging Church Christians believe there are radically diverse perspectives within Christianity that are valuable for humanity to progress toward truth and a better resulting relationship with God, and that these different perspectives deserve Christian charity rather than condemnation.

The movement appropriates set theory as a means of understanding a basic change in the way the Christian church thinks about itself as a group. Set theory is a concept in mathematics that allows an understanding of what numbers belong to a group, or set. A bounded set would describe a group with clear “in” and “out” definitions of membership. The Christian church has largely organized itself as a bounded set, those who share the same beliefs and values are in the set and those who disagree are outside.

The centered set does not limit membership to pre-conceived boundaries. Instead a centered set is conditioned on a centered point. Membership is contingent on those who are moving toward that point. Elements moving toward a particular point are part of the set, but elements moving away from that point are not. As a centered-set Christian membership would be dependent on moving toward the central point of Jesus. A Christian is then defined by their focus and movement toward Christ rather than a limited set of shared beliefs and values. John Wimber utilized the centered set understanding of membership in his Vineyard Churches. The centered set theory of Christian Churches came largely from missional anthropologist Paul Hiebert. The centered set understanding of membership allows for a clear vision of the focal point, the ability to move toward that point without being tied down to smaller diversions, a sense of total egalitarianism with respect for differing opinions, and an authority moved from individual members to the existing center.

Authenticity and Conversation

The movement favors the sharing of experiences via testimonies, prayer, group recitation, sharing meals and other communal practices, which they believe are more personal and sincere than propositional presentations of the Gospel. Teachers in the Emerging Church tend to view the Bible and its stories through a lens which they believe finds significance and meaning for their community’s social and personal stories rather than for the purpose of finding cross-cultural, propositional absolutes regarding salvation and conduct.

The emerging church claims they are creating a safe environment for those with opinions ordinarily rejected within modern conservative evangelicalism and fundamentalism. Non-critical, interfaith dialog is preferred over dogmatically-driven evangelism in the movement. Story and narrative replaces the dogmatic:
The relationship between words and images has changed in contemporary culture. In a post-foundational world, it is the power of the image that takes us to the text. The bible is no longer a principal source of morality, functioning as a rulebook. The gradualism of postmodernity has transformed the text into a guide, a source of spirituality, in which the power of the story as but on potential moral reference point has superseded the didactic. Thus the meaning of the Good Samaritan is more important than the Ten Commandments – even assuming that the latter could be remembered in any detail by anyone. Into this mileau the image speaks with power.

Those in the movement do not engage in aggressive apologetics or confrontational evangelism in the traditional sense, preferring to encourage the freedom to discover truth through conversation and relationships with the Christian community.

Missional living

Participants in this movement assert that the incarnation of Christ informs their theology, believing that as God entered the world in human form, adherents enter (individually and communally) into the context around them, aiming to transform that culture through local involvement in it. This holistic involvement may take many forms, including social activism, hospitality, and acts of kindness. This beneficent involvement in culture is part of what is called “missional living.

This approach leads to their focus on temporal and social issues, as opposed to a perceived Evangelical overemphasis on eternal salvation. Drawing on research and models of contextual theology, Mobsby asserts that the Emerging Church is using different models of contextual theology to Conservative Evangelicals. Conservative Evangelical Churches tend to use a ‘translation’ model of contextual theology, (which has been criticized for being colonialist and having a very low opinion of culture and humanity), where the Emerging Church tends to use a ‘synthetic’ or ‘transcendent’ model of contextual theology. The Emerging Church has charged many Conservative Evangelical Churches of withdrawal from involvement from contextual mission and seeking contextualisation of the gospel.

False Doctrine Beware

Emerging/emergent spirituality is making frightening strides in Christianity today.  Whether it is emergent or emerging it means one with the world culture. Churches and Christian colleges, who may not fully understand the subtle undermining of this spirituality from the world, the flesh and the devil, are endorsing and promoting it. An event (Movement 2009) took place on May 29th at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa (the Calvary Chapel mother church) with Rock Harbor pastor, Mike Erre.

The “kingdom of God” wicked theology that Erre presents is deadly broad. Erre states that there has been too much emphasis within Christianity on individual salvation and nothing on corporate salvation (i.e.., all of the world and creation being saved). He believes God is saving “all of creation” ( as seen on page 100 in his book Death by Church). Erre exalts uncertainty and doubt (always searching, never finding). He states: “Jesus brings mystery, paradox, and tension—rarely did someone get a straight answer out of Him” (p. 36). This sounds like New Perspective mendacious theology that is in Bible churches today. I have heard it. This teaching is totally counterfeit. It is a demonic lie from the pit of hell. God is not a God of confusion and the Biblical Christ must always be followed without question. He is the Word of God and His robe is dipped in blood; Revelation 19:13. Jesus Christ must always be uplifted in an all-holy manner, not analyzed as one would an insane neighbor who does not know what he is talking about. It is blasphemy to scrutinize Jesus Christ in a questioning manner. He is the Creator of the universe and its sustainer. Every knee will someday bow before Him!

“Erre’s kingdom theology is expressed throughout his book, “Death by Church. On page 132, he states that the gospel is “something bigger” than the “story of Jesus’ dying for the private sins of individuals…. it is the story of God’s kingdom being launched, on earth as in heaven, generating a new state of affairs. Atonement, redemption, and salvation are what happen on the way.” This emerging spirituality that does not see atonement, redemption, and salvation as a moment in history when Jesus Christ died on the Cross but rather an ongoing process that is continually growing, expanding, changing (see our review of An Emergent Manifesto of Hope). Erre states that “the end of the age does not result in the destruction of the earth but rather in its renewal.” Errie states: “Rather that waiting for the last days, we have been living in them since the coming of Jesus. Rather than waiting for the end to come, we are already living in the end times that will be consummated when Jesus returns” (p. 198). And, “The end of the age does not result in the destruction of the earth but rather in its renewal” (p. 212).”

“Erre sounds very much like a New Age Episcopalian priest (like N. T. Wright and others), and when he says ‘deep theology’ he actually means ‘deep ecumenism’ (‘deep’ meaning all-inclusive). Erre spouts that all of creation is being restored and saved. This runs redundantly throughout his book.”

Of course, true born again believers know that the road to heaven is narrow and few follow it. One can only be saved by being born again through the precious shed blood of Christ that cleanses from sin. The Bible is inerrant and it must be the only teaching of the church, never the doctrines and precepts of men. Sinful man always desires to become a god unto himself, according to what he thinks, has experienced or others have.

What true church that is commanded to be separated from the world, would meet in a nightclub as Rock Harbor did in its past?  What church that believes the Bible is true and that women are to dress in bashfulness towards men as commanded, would put a cross next to a painting of a topless woman?

“COSTA MESA – It’s Palm Sunday at the Shark Club nightclub in Costa Mesa. Bibles lay on the ornate pool tables. Tattooed twenty-something are text-messaging furiously before the service. They sit on red velvet lounge chairs or bar stools under gleaming silver disco balls.

But the only thing on tap here is the grape juice for Communion.

A black curtain is draped over the bar, hiding the Bacardi, vodka and beer. A cross is propped next to a covered painting of a topless woman.”

“…They really know how to bring Christian relevance to our everyday atmosphere. It doesn’t feel that big to me,” said the marketing director of Fly by Night, a Huntington Beach disc jockey company.

“Here we are having church in a bar,” he said. “We’re not living in a Christian bubble. I came here once and was hooked ever since.”

From Rock Harbor’s websites:

http://www.rockharbor.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=category&layout=blog&id=53&Itemid=83

“art as a bridge
art holds a significant place in our culture. movies, video, theatre, dance, and visual art are esteemed, explored and most importantly – understood in all areas of our society. we desire to use this common medium to communicate truth.”

http://www.rockharborswings.com/    At this link, you can view Rock Harbor’s advertisement for their swing  dances, promoted as a chance to get to know others. They invite the unsaved to partake as well.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBRgOz8kYDo  This sad, worldly video,  reveals the truth of what I am stating.  I do not recommend that men view this. If they desire to know what is taking place, I would ask for a wife or sister to watch.  This clip is of  a Rock Harbor dance team performing at Rick Warren’s church (Saddleback) that is homosexual affirming.  This video shows girls, girls, girls and men love to see them dance this way!  Christian men are called to view women in all chaste purity and anyone in their right mind recognizes this is not what this promotes.  (1 Timothy 5:2)   No church has a right to claim to be part of the body of Christ that engages in such lewdness.

http://www.rockharbor.org/files/artsnculture/newsletter%20june_julyupdate.pdf

In this newsletter (link above), they state “all styles of dance represented and welcomed!”  Yes, there is an exclamation point. They also promote a performance called “Funny Bone.”  They advertise it as being “hilarious and funny.”  Where are our churches going?  They are certainly apostate in every sense of the word.

Where in the Bible are we commanded to imitate culture? We are to hate this world and its productions, not mimic it for a trendy cultural look so the unsaved never witness the holy separated sacrifice.  True believers are hated by society’s culture  because they expose its sinful alluring agendas that spell “fun” for all. World = culture is a true equation.

________

John Calvin is also revered today in countless churches. He believed the human race would bruise satan on the head, not Jesus Christ when He conquered death through His tree of suffering and shame. …“we must necessarily come to one head, that we may find to whom the victory belongs … Wherefore, the sense will be (in my judgment) that the human race, which Satan was endeavouring to oppress, would at length be victorious.” Uplifting the sinful, vile human race is nothing new and uplifting false theologians who do so is nothing new.

When one truth of Scripture is thrown out the window, it opens all the windows for an invasion of lies. The Bible must be taught verse by verse, chapter by chapter with no compromise and with the listener’s ears wide open in this day and age of church apostasy. Scripture must be compared with Scripture in order for one not to be deceived. Man-made contrived interpretations must be confronted.

The church today wants to be worldly conforming, not separated from the world teachings, methodologies and terminologies. Most pastors do not want to stand on street corners preaching the Word of salvation or going door to door to reach the lost. They attempt to make the church look like the world and sound like the world so it is pleasing to all for numbers sake. They want mega churches and they want them their way without having to go out as the apostles and prophets exampled for all, for all ages. They were willing to die for the Gospel and did not seek to be viewed as cool, trendy and technology-wise.

The church is called the church because it is made up of believing Christians who abide in the truths of the Word of God (1 Corinthians 5:11 and 6:9-11). The church is to go out and save and then bring them in. I do not say true searching ones cannot be allowed in. Nevertheless, the church means the church of Jesus Christ, its Savior.

The church must shun Satan’s entertaining ways of allurement and return to the Biblical examples of reaching the lost. The church in general looks silly-stupid as it attempts to appear styling—holding to a rock-out mentality that uplifts Hollywood productions and present its own rock stars. And the apostate church craves Hollywood-like Gospel productions—the best in presentation.

It desires its own programs to be set before people like sitcoms. Very sick indeed! The contemporary mindset set forth is a lie from the pit of hell. Yet, contemporary-ism rules most churches.

I believe the church in general is walking the apostasy road because it craves the entertainers of the world and uplifts them as gods. Church attendees do not want to believe these live people-gods are of Satan and their idol entertainers are going to hell unless they repent of their ways. It is becoming more easy for church goers to believe everyone is going to reach heaven. The false teachers are tickling the ears of their make believe world. Christians no longer want to dwell on those things that are true, they relish the novel mentality.

The apostasy is becoming more grave as each day passes. May the church revive and come out from amongst them and be separate.

(some information accumulated and quoted)

This question was posed to me regarding “False Doctrine Beware.”

I must state first, in regards to Genesis 3:15, we are not dealing with an “it” as if in reference to the human race. “Heel” is in the masculine form. We also know from Romans 5:14-21, 1 Corinthians 15:21-25, etc. that this is a reference to Christ’s work. It was God’s prophecy concerning the Messiah. Calvin deliberately lied regarding God’s Word. The NASB states, “He (meaning the seed of God and man) shall bruise you (the serpent) on the head and you shall bruise Him (Jesus Christ) on the heel.” Satan knew exactly what this prophecy meant and that is why he wanted to murder Christ at His birth—Revelation 12:1-4)

Question:

“Where did you get the quote from John Calvin? The quotation says to me that those who come to the Head (Jesus Christ) will be victorious through what Jesus did on the cross for us. The victory belongs to us through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Here was my answer:

I trust you are being blessed today. Concerning Calvin, you can see his entire commentary on the bruising of Christ below.

It must be recognized Calvin, like false teachers today, spoke always out of both sides of his mouth. If you look at his commentary, you see that he speaks both ways. The “human race” is not the church though he tries to sound pious by ending his commentary, by slyly making it sound like the church. He talks like one from the Episcopalian church and the Episcopalian church loves Calvin. You must grasp the fact the “human race” is not the church as Calvin tries to infer. Only a very small fraction of the human race is saved and it consists of the “called out ones” from the human race. The Bible never refers to the church as the “human race.” The human race moves according to Satan’s influence. It will not destroy its own false god, Satan. Only Jesus Christ has that authority. Satan is still loose and roaming the earth.

The Seed is Christ, not the future generations that came from Eve, as explained by Calvin. Satan was not bound by the human race through future generations. The human race will never be victorious. The human race in general is bound for hell. Only the church is saved.

Calvin is wrong, the bruising did take place by one man only—Jesus Christ. When Paul refers to bruising in Romans 16:20 (see Calvin’s statements below), he is not referring to when Christ bruised Satan on the cross. We know Genesis 3:15 refers to the cross as it states to Satan, “you shall bruise Him on the heel.” Satan was not victorious in his attempt to destroy God on the cross.

And you must see, even from the Romans verse, that it states the LORD who will bruise Satan under the feet of the saints. We exalt only in Christ’s power not our own. We can do nothing apart from Him. What God is referring to in this verse in Romans is the fact Christ will usher in His kingdom following the tribulation (and will rule from Israel (Revelation 19:11-chapter 20). The bruising of Satan is not imparted to faithful men as Calvin states. It is through God and God alone. We cannot read into Scripture what is not there as Calvin consistently does.

Calvin lies and says the church has replaced Israel in his commentaries. He also stated that Christ did not die for all men. God is not a God of confusion, but Calvin is and so are his followers. Satan is the one whose doctrine never makes sense.

I hope you understand and see the truth.

Much love,

Val (Colossians 1:9-14)

Calvin Commentary Genesis 3:15:

It shall bruise. 45 This passage affords too clear a proof of the great ignorance, dullness, and carelessness, which have prevailed among all the learned men of the Papacy. The feminine gender has crept in instead of the masculine or neuter. There has been none among them who would consult the Hebrew or Greek codices, or who would even compare the Latin copies with each other. 46 Therefore, by a common error, this most corrupt reading has been received. Then, a profane exposition of it has been invented, by applying to the mother of Christ what is said concerning her seed.

There is, indeed no ambiguity in the words here used by Moses; but I do not agree with others respecting their meaning; for other interpreters take the seed for Christ, without controversy; as if it were said, that some one would arise from the seed of the woman who should wound the serpent’s head. Gladly would I give my suffrage in support of their opinion, but that I regard the word seed as too violently distorted by them; for who will concede that a collective noun is to be understood of one man only? Further, as the perpetuity of the contest is noted, so victory is promised to the human race through a continual succession of ages. I explain, therefore, the seed to mean the posterity of the woman generally. But since experience teaches that not all the sons of Adam by far, arise as conquerors of the devil, we must necessarily come to one head, that we may find to whom the victory belongs. So Paul, from the seed of Abraham, leads us to Christ; because many were degenerate sons, and a considerable part adulterous, through infidelity; whence it follows that the unity of the body flows from the head. Wherefore, the sense will be (in my judgment) that the human race, which Satan was endeavoring to oppress, would at length be victorious. 47 In the meantime, we must keep in mind that method of conquering which the Scripture describes. Satan has, in all ages, led the sons of men “captive at his will”, and, to this day, retains his lamentable triumph over them, and for that reason is called the prince of the world, (John 12:31.) But because one stronger than he has descended from heaven, who will subdue him, hence it comes to pass that, in the same manner, the whole Church of God, under its Head, will gloriously exult over him. To this the declaration of Paul refers,

“The Lord shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly,”
(Romans 16:20.)

By which words he signifies that the power of bruising Satan is imparted to faithful men, and thus the blessing is the common property of the whole Church; but he, at the same time, admonishes us, that it only has its commencement in this world; because God crowns none but well — tried wrestlers.

Israel—End Times

http://www.oneplace.com/ministries/Thru_the_Bible_Sunday_Sermon/

I would like to recommend the sermon at the link above. It is aptly powerful for our times. It deals with end time prophecies and what has occurred in Israel and what will. It covers the attitude of Jews who now believe Israel is the messiah and science the answer to everything. The ecumenical movement is prominent everywhere, including Israel.

One thing I gleaned from this message, regarded the UN’s declaration that was adopted in 1949. Due to the Catholics and Russia, Jerusalem was formed into an international city. This is why she has no power to rebuild the temple or do as she pleases. This is not surprising regarding the Catholics—they do not believe in Revelation. The hierarchy tells Catholics not to read Revelation because it occurred during the time of the Romans. This being what Calvinists adhere to also. Calvin was a follower of Augustine who fathered the Catholic Church and he worshipped the queen of heaven (the Catholic Mary). Catholics and Calvinists do not believe Jews have right of ownership to the Holy Land. They are out of the picture.

Armageddon occurs right before Christ’s thousand-year rule and Gog and Magog occurs after Christ’s thousand-year rule. This is made totally evident from Revelation chapter 16 and 19:11-20, Zechariah chapter 12, etc. Many people today will state, what is occurring in the Middle East is the precursor of Armageddon. Many such heretical utterances have been pronounced in recent decades. Such statements are lies. The Tribulation has not begun nor come to an end.  When it unfolds, Christ will come with all his holy angels and destroy all His enemies as described in Revelation 19, Jude 14-16, etc.  Christ will rule someday in all holy, innocent righteousness, maintaining an authoritative rod of iron in Jerusalem. He will rule a thousand years following Armageddon.  Then the final battle against evil will occur—when satan is released from hell and gathers the nations against Christ and the nation Israel;  Revelation 20:7-9 and Ezekiel 38.  The judgment then takes place. 

There have been many peace treaties signed in the Middle East with Israel and we know from Daniel 11:24 that the religious antichrist will make an alliance. We know from Daniel 7:23 that there will be four main antichrists. Revelation 13 reveals two. The main antichrist who is the religious one is viewed in Daniel 11 and various places in Scripture. We have the religious antichrist and the political antichrists. Three of the four seem to be political from Daniel 7 and Revelation 13.

In Daniel 11, we note apocalyptic events transpire in the Middle East, the home of the antichrist. In Revelation, the Euphrates River is stated twice to give us the local of end times. The main antichrist, who is spoken of in Daniel 11, starts out with a small force of people in the Middle East. He is not from America as America has a great force of people. This is not President Obama as many seen to believe. It is amazing that people refer to him as the messiah. America is not stated in the Bible. There is no apocalyptic reference to her.

Everything in Daniel 11 deals with the Middle East. We know America is not the stage of these events from this chapter and others. We recognize the true Messiah must be Jewish—of the line of David. Daniel 11:28, 36, 38 indicates the antichrist is Jewish or holds some Jewish blood. He appears to be from Israel and another nearby land. He returns to Israel (his land) with many riches and then returns to his land. This chapter is sister to 2 Thessalonians chapter 2. He seems to connect himself with Israel and what would be a Muslim nation in today’s scheme. It will most likely be Iraq. And Iraq seems to be the location of mystery Babylon. Historical Babylon was in Iraq, running along the Euphrates River. The Euphrates River has changed its course and ancient Babylon’s ruins no longer rest beside this river. New Babylon will probably rest on the Euphrates, not far from the ancient city. It is the new Babylon, being it will have many resemblances. The antichrist may begin with ruling power in Iraq and Israel. He seems to be of two home areas. God knows what will be the location of his second home in the Middle East.

Other key strategic Middle East areas are Edom, Moab, Ammon, Libya and Ethiopia as viewed in Daniel 11. The religious antichrist makes a home for himself between the sea and the Holy Land at the close of the chapter. This chapter also mentions the king of the South. Saudi Arabia is south.

Hitler was ¼ Jewish or so it appears. He destroyed all his records to keep it a secret. He bombed his hometown area that held the documents and killed a man who was investigating his possible Jewish bloodline. I believe many Christians believed he was the antichrist, as he sought to rule the world in holocaustic military power just as the future antichrists. People looked to Hitler as god and sang his praises. He murdered thousands of Jews and Christians. Many antichrists will arise in the end days and Obama is certainly a type. But only a type, he holds no Jewish blood and his home is not Israel.

Things seem to be looming in the direction of concluding times and that is all I can say. I do not have any idea when the rapture will occur. I do not want God’s judgment placed upon me for assuming anything. We do know the chronological order of events from Scripture:

* The Rapture

* The Tribulation Period

* Armageddon

* The Millennium (Christ’s thousand-year rule on the earth)

*  Gog and Magog

*  The Judgment

When we were in the Gulf War, false prophets stated this was the beginning of Armageddon. Many false prophecies arose. In the OT, if one prophesied falsely once, they were to be stoned. It positively revealed the words they spoke came from Satan. What is sad is when one lies or falsely prophesies today, they are still allowed in the church, even though they have proven themselves to be of Satan. Anyone who states anything in regards to end times or anything of Biblical truth, must prove it without a shadow of doubt through Scripture. God’s Word must verify everything, verse by verse, chapter by chapter.

(1 John 5:10-13—the Bible)

Words of a pastor:

Considering the unbiblical and unconstitutional legislation at hand, it’s looking more and more like faithful Christians could soon be viewed as enemies of the state for no other reason than having believed, proclaimed and obeyed the Word of God. Not only is the church being attacked from without, it is also being undermined from within by charlatans who would transform it into something more spiritually pliable, socially useful and dialectically accommodating.

I believe Christians will again and again be called upon to choose whom we will serve in the coming days in ways that will bring more persecution and suffering than we are accustomed to, requiring a spiritual farsightedness and desire for the eternal things of God over the temporal rewards of this world.

N. T. Wright – Not of God

Westminster Abbey  

I  shot this photo when my husband and I vacationed in London

I was asked a question by a theologian of the Messianic sect, why I believe N. T. Wright (Bishop of Durham) is demon persuaded. Here is my answer composed in bits and pieces with quotes:

We know Christians respond to their heavenly Father, hopefully. Christ said of the religious leaders that they were of their father the devil; John 8:44. It also states here that every lie originates with Satan. N. T. Wright continually lies about God and His inerrant Word. We know from 2 Corinthians chapter 6 that either a person follows Christ or Satan, there is no in between. This is why we cannot be bound to unbelievers. Demons listen to their commander, performing his bidding.

Demons were presenting satan’s beliefs through the religious rulers of Christ day. The Pharisees, Sadducees and Scribes appeared religious with their long robes, Scriptural teachings, etc. However, they were of their father the devil as false teachers who added their own words and traditions to true beliefs. Satan and the religious rulers were intent on destroying God the Son.

Either people hold to the teachings of the Bible or of Satan and his demons. God gives no in between roadway.

New Perspective (Wright’s movement) uplifts the religious leaders of Christ’s day as actually being the good guys in certain realms. Such beliefs represent the doctrines of demons.

New Perspective on Paul is demonic as it teaches Paul was out for his own militaristic agendas, following his own drummer. The NPP philosophies are filled with heresies straight from the pit of hell. Satan is out to discredit God’s Word and he uses his children to do so.

Wright is called the “theologian for everyone” as he attempts to tickle everyone’s ear with demonic false doctrines approving of every demonic way under the sun. He rewrites the Bible according to Wright. He has created his own false religion whereby he continually speaks out both sides of his mouth. He never makes concrete sense. Much of the time he speaks nonsense—confusion. God is not a god of confusion; Satan and his demons author confusion. It is beyond me why he is considered a great theologian.

Paul was errorless  in his teachings, as they were the Words of God. No author of the Bible wrote his own words, only what the Holy Spirit instructed him to write.

We know Christ, who is God, never had to be vindicated by the Father as Wright states below. He, like all false teachers, blends truth with error. You see this all through Calvin’s writings as well and N. T. Wright uplifts Calvin.

From N. T. Wright:
Paul, it should be remembered, is one interpretation and experience of Christianity, and while it has become the dominant view it is, again, one of many threads existing in the earliest times after Jesus. When he’s wrong, he’s wrong. When he’s right, he’s astonishing.

For example, there are a few lines that, for me, should be kept within the soul and heart of every person who finds themselves attracted to the Jesus at the center of all that has been added, chiseled and carved to become Christianity. In 2 Corinthians 4:9, Paul writes:

“We are afflicted in every way but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies.”

I maintain that is inspiration at its highest, an example of Paul soaring above the confines of his own more mundane and pointed interpretations of who Jesus (or, for him, the Christ) was as a kind of cosmic figure. Is there anything else we can think of to wish for from a religion? That the world will afflict us cannot be debated. We see it every day in our lives and the lives of others. Yet, says Christianity, we can not be crushed. We read the headlines and are perplexed by what we read, from deaths in Iraq to Russia, from crime at home to the troubles of thousands. Yet, Paul maintains, in spite of all this we do not have to make the choice to be driven to despair. Certainly, there are those who are persecuted — for their religion, the color of their skin, their sexual orientation. Then again, those victims will never be forsaken. Finally, we will be struck down by life, but cannot be ultimately destroyed by circumstances and events.

Because if in our mind and through our very body we carry the death of Jesus, we cannot help but carry the life of Jesus as well. We are, as the Episcopalians say in their services, part of the mystical body of Christ which, in itself, includes Jesus and includes the very Mystery that empowered Jesus.

Jesus, I believe, went to his death expecting to be vindicated by God. If the cup could not be lifted, Jesus said, so be it. His validation would come from his death in a way that he did not know based not on dogma but, rather, on belief born out of the exquisite personal relationship he knew with God. Certainly, through Paul we see glimpses elsewhere of the fact that Jesus was a man acted upon by God. His resurrection was a visible indication of an invisible operation in the Universe, one of hope and eventual vindication and victory.
In time, then, the closeness to the Eternal that Jesus invited us to became personified as Jesus himself, the historical person. It is that language we speak today in hymns and creeds, but it points beyond itself (as Jesus demanded again and again) not to the man of Nazareth himself, but to the Transcendent which poured forth through him, the vehicle.

A lady I once knew attended a Bible-believing church where the leadership claimed to not support NT Wright, but the Sunday she visited, the pastor referred to NT Wright as one of the greatest theologians of our day. Tom Wright is leading many down a road of deception.

I Know N. T. Wright is of the evil one, as he does not condemn homosexuality and sexual promiscuity. Those who are of God, His born again children, teach that premarital sex, adultery, homosexuality, etc; is sinful. The Holy Spirit within a true believer reveals that God’s Word is inerrant. This includes the fact that adulterers and fornicators God will judge, but the marriage bed is undefiled. True aged believers understand Sodom and Gomorrah and Romans chapter 1.

In What St. Paul Really Said pgs.155-157 Wright does not in any way condemn pre-marital sex, etc. Wright states on page 156 that it is not to be ignored, denied or repressed according to Paul. But we know that outside of marriage it is vile and not of God. N. T. Wright states a demonic lie.

Wright: …it would be a more authentic position, I think, to say, as an intellectually authentic position to say the New Testament says that homosexual practice is not what Christians ought to engage in but I disagree for these reasons. Now I can understand that position. I can’t actually understand a position which says the New Testament is either silent or open on the subject because, frankly, it isn’t. The other thing which comes up again and again is people say, well, all they knew about was certain types of homosexual phenomena and not at all the sort of thing that we have, to which the answer is just go and read Plato. Plato’s Symposium has a lengthy discussion of homosexual love which includes as one of the options precisely the kind of long, stable partnership that some people now are advocating. And this in fact is not new. Modern homosexuality was not invented my Michael Fuko, you know. There’s a great deal that goes back through the 18th and 19th centuries with which we’re in a continuum. This is a much deeper and harder…
___________

N. T. Wright is an Anglican bishop at Westminster Abbey—a church that believes most everyone is going to heaven. I have been there. I have heard their demonic false teachings that please every ecumenical ear. If you spend time around these bishops, you can tell they are void of the Holy Spirit. They teach the doctrines of men as the doctrines of God. They are demonic and they are doing Satan’s bidding by sending the masses to hell. They implement New Age doctrines that cause people to question God and His inerrant Word. Wright tears God’s Word apart and replaces its truth with Wright’s mentality. He is an antichrist in every sense of the word.

Wright aligns himself with the bishops in this Abbey and all Anglican bishops. They tell the tourists who come to this abbey, that all the people who buried there are in heaven and visitors must feel so proud to be amongst these great people. They lead prayer in this vein. I know most of the nobility buried here where murderers, adulterers, thieves, tyrants, etc. The bishops state all of Britain’s royalty and noble are in heaven—all the vile of the earth who are buried in this Abbey. (Of course, Wrights view of heaven is not Biblical: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AA0NLb0pXGI)

I must also ask, “How can a true born again Christian preach in a church that has Mary idols placed about and all kinds of secular stupidity?” What born again Christian is going to preach in a building full of crypts that hold the remains of godless people? Who in their right mind is going to uplift kings and queens who murdered Christians? These people are continually exalted by the Abbey bishops. This was where they held Princess Diana’s funeral and countless other vile people who lived sexually promiscuous lives and did not acknowledge Christ as their Savior and LORD. The bishops will say they all went to heaven. This is Westminster Abbey and Wright’s environment that he powerfully upholds.

____________

Wright definitely is not pro-Israel. A true child of God looks toward the removal of Israel’s enemies and Christ world rule in Jerusalem.

From Article:
Just consider Wright’s most recent commentary for Newsweek’s “On Faith,” anticipating the sixth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Remarkably, Wright sees little difference between the ideals of Western democracies and those of Islamic terrorists. “What I wish we could say to terrorists and others: Look, we take our religion seriously too, and it leads us to different conclusions from you. We might be wrong; so might you; but in the name of whichever god you invoke, would it not be a better thing for us all to talk together about the issues at the heart of our respective faiths than to try to achieve dominance by violence?” Adding to the ambiguity, he closes with this line: “Unfortunately, they could quite well come back at us and say, ‘You mean, like you westerners have been doing in Iraq and Afghanistan for the last five years?'”

We expect to hear this sophism of moral equivalence from spokesmen at Al Jazeera television or the Arab League. Yet it somehow has emerged as a central argument in Wright’s critique of the war on radical Islam.

In his first major address on terrorism, “Where is God in the War on Terror?” Wright never mentioned the activities and ambitions of Osama bin Laden and his terrorist allies. He failed to cite any government assessments of the international terrorist threat. Al Qaeda and its operatives are plotting violence in 30 to 40 countries, are actively seeking nuclear material to detonate in urban centers, and are responsible for attacks that have killed or injured thousands of civilians in the last year alone–but you’d never know it from a speech approaching 8,000 words in length.

The bishop exudes moral outrage–but not at the extremists. Wright reserves the weight of his scorn for the United States and Great Britain and their foreign policies since the attacks of 9/11.

In the address in Durham, delivered last November, Wright condemned not only the war in Iraq, but also the U.S.-led coalition that toppled the Taliban in Afghanistan–a military offensive unanimously approved by the U.N. Security Council. He compared the United States to a “rogue elephant teased by a little dog,” staggering along on a militaristic rampage and “imposing the will of the West” on hapless populations. A first century historian, Wright can’t help but regard America as ancient Rome, nurturing similar imperial dreams: “All empires claim they possess justice, freedom and peace and that they have a duty to share these things with everybody else.” Imperialism, in fact, is a recurrent theme. “We have relied on the same methods as we used in the nineteenth century,” he said. “If in doubt, send in the gunboats and teach Johnny Foreigner a lesson he won’t forget.” And, as if the imperial metaphor weren’t crude enough, Wright reached for a cartoon reference: “The Superman myth, or the Captain America complex, has been shown to underlie the implicit narratives of generation after generation of American leaders,” he claimed, “generating the belief that the hero must use redemptive violence to restore the town, the country, the world to its proper state.”

Likewise, in his recent book, Evil and the Justice of God, Wright supposedly sets out to offer a sober reflection on evil in the age of terror. Too often, however, he descends into sloganeering, revisionist history, and downright incoherence. He chastises the “dualism” of the “us-and-them disjunction” that supposedly finds no fault with Western democracy. He characterizes the U.S.-led effort against radical Islam as a “knee-jerk, unthinking, immature lashing out” against its enemies, real and imagined. “Just as you cannot eliminate evil by act of Congress or by a philosophical argument,” he writes, “so you cannot do so with high explosives.”

Wright’s straw-man arguments all ignore the character and reach of militant Islam. A serious reading of the U.S. government’s most authoritative study on terrorism, the bi-partisan 9/11 Commission Report, would correct the deficit. “Bin Laden and Islamist terrorists mean exactly what they say: to them America is the font of all evil, the ‘head of the snake,’ and it must be converted or destroyed,” the commissioners concluded. “It is not a position with which Americans can bargain or negotiate.” The most recent National Intelligence Estimate of the threat of global terrorism confirms that view. Its authors believe that “the global jihadist movement” is spreading, adapting, and plotting new attacks on civilian targets. “We judge that most jihadist groups will attempt to conduct sustained terrorist attacks in urban environments.” No wonder, then, that the 9/11 Commission Report summarized the threat of al Qaeda thus: “With it there is no common ground–not even respect for human life–on which to begin a dialogue…

_______________________

Wright follows the doctrines of demons. Every belief contrary to the Bible is a doctrine of satan. Wright would not have been accepted 50 years ago within Christendom. People today do not know their Bibles nor own the faith to believe them; they have quenched the work of the Holy Spirit. This is why Wright’s words are being received. We are in the age of the apostasy. Christians must wake up and walk by the Spirit and not the flesh. The flesh, the world and satan all function as one against God’s truths. A very wicked trio.
