Christine Weick: Brave Tennessean Witness for Christ and a Most Shameful Day for America

On a day when Muslims spread their prayer rugs in America’s National Cathedral with their backs to the large cross of Christ hanging there, the famous cathedral was void of witnesses for Christ, church protestors and real Christians of any kind – except for one!

Is Christine Weick God’s prophetess or just a singular woman, a stone (Lk 19: 40) that cries out - because others will not?

In a video provided by WND, Christine is seen rebuking the Muslims in the National Cathedral for turning their backs against the large hanging cross. She also tells them that they should be holding their gathering in one of their own mosques.

Since we are now entering a full blown apostasy of the Christian church and many historic denominations and Catholicism have already dropped out of the biblically based faith we are not at all surprised by yet one more public display of the falling away. FULL POST

The Pope Presumes – The Theory of Evolution Boosted by Pontiff

Using science is wise – blindly patronizing science is presumption and idolatry – Anon.

In a blazing headline One News Now published an article entitled “Pope backs evolution, Vatican calls creation ‘blasphemous,’” in it, author Michael F. Haverluck says “In a speech given at a Pontifical Academy of Sciences ceremony unveiling a bust of his predecessor, Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI, Pope Francis declared his full-fledged support of evolution as the scientifically correct explanation of the origin of man — and the universe.”

Unwilling to go full-fledged “everything from nothing’ the Pope has scratched out an explanation from the playbook of ‘theistic-evolution’ which is a way of saying God created all things, but he used evolution to do it.

The Pope’s first and most serious mistake has to do with theology not science. Among those who hold scripture as final and authoritative is the belief that when man raises himself above scripture he has already begun an apostasy and a fall into full blown error. Whether pastor, pope, evangelist, teacher or religious philosopher, the person who presumes that God fibbed, failed or skimped on the truth revealed in scripture, where God proclaims himself as Creator of all things, including the stars and heavenly bodies over 300 times - that man or women is in the first stages of apostasy and the last stages of full blown presumption.

Is It Really Hate Speech – Or Just Speech That You Hate

Across the spectrum journalists and writers are besieged by the so called “politically correct” crowd when it comes to the hot button issues. Homosexuality, abortion, “same sex marriage” and immigration are at the top of the list.

Top journalist Matt Barber posted a recent article entitled “LGBT’: The ‘T’ is for Tyranny” about Houston Mayor Annise Parker who subpoenaed the sermons of Houston pastors. The subpoenas have since been dropped, but the attempt to squash free speech leaves a lingering foul odor in the air that first amendment America can still smell across the land.

An honest and careful perusal of Barber’s article reveals that mis-use of power is the subject. Barber makes it clear that not only has first amendment been breached, but it has become the agenda of the Democratic Party to suspend free speech especially as it pertains to the LGBT’s agenda.

Antichrist – There’s an App for That: Or There Soon Will Be

Every leader and decision maker in the world believes they are acting independently of all Divine purpose. Yet, what we are told in the Bible is that no one and no nation is completely independent, they are under the control of Divinity and those which collectively choose an evil path are directed by (Satan) the god of this world, sometimes referred to as the ruler of the cosmos.

Trying to convince them that they are controlled is a futility. It is part of the gospel as is the warnings of prophecy. There’s little mystery to the fact that the world is becoming so openly hostile to the gospel and anything at all to do with the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. It goes with the territory, the prophetic warnings and the rise of the well prophesied last and worst dictator of the world known as the Antichrist.

The hostility is also a facet of prophecy. The bible clearly warns that shortly before Antichrist is revealed that strong spiritual influences will pave the way for his rise. (1Jn 2: 18) The spirit of Antichrist is working and preparing the hearts of men to fully receive him. FULL POST

Just Watched a Blood Red Moon – Now What?

Here in the New Orleans area it was 69 degrees, slightly humid with almost no wind on the morning of October 8, 2014.

I am usually up at about 4am every morning so it was a day like any other except a short time later I noticed the moon beginning to eclipse. It took slightly under 45 minutes to complete and then a slightly reddish color, dull and barely perceptible washed across three fourths of the moon’s surface. It was not very bright or overwhelmingly significant to see.

I had just witnessed a ‘tetrad’ one of the much anticipated ‘blood red moons’ that so many are buzzed about. It is supposed to be connected to Israel’s feast days, past history and some sort of warning for them today.

Subjective impressions embellished by past histories can only get so much mileage and this event failed to make much of an impression on me.

Could it be connected to Israel’s immediate history – perhaps?

More than likely it will pass into history for what it is – a lunar eclipse, and little else.

In several articles and reports I asked those who think these astronomical occurrences are going to affect the events of history, prophecy and specifically the State of Israel to consider very carefully that astronomy and astrology are two very different things. FULL POST

Christian and Conservative Internet – Is it Time to Review?

We have all heard commentators and TV news people berating the news and info sites found on the internet. At the same time they all admit that the largest segment of the broadcast, cable and radio media, commonly referred to the main stream media (msm) are liberal, biased and in some instances - totally corrupt.

Is it a case of the pot calling the kettle black, or are they biased themselves - against the internet.

Perhaps, it is a bit of both.

It suffices to say, that truth and responsible reportage can be found on the internet even though it is fraught with falsehood, mis-information, spectacularism and questionable motives.

In the case of TV we were told that if we don’t like what we see, we can turn it off. On the internet the method is – don’t turn it on.

Sometimes TV reporting cannot see its own weakness such as, the call to say what you have to summarize with only thirty seconds of time left to make your case. That does not happen on the internet. I have seen that some people spend as much as a half hour perusing over some of our articles and their related links.

Also some of the most reputable agencies are now online such as WSJ, Breitbart and others. Dismissing the internet out of hand is no longer an honest or a smart thing to do. FULL POST

The Dangers of the Fifth Gospel – Real Christianity is No Buffet

We all know of the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, but have you heard of the fifth gospel? I used to call it the gospel according to the Americans, but it is becoming a worldwide phenomenon and I have broadened the definition to – the gospel according to you.

George Barna is a prolific writer and statistician who studies the ebb and flow of Christianity with diagnostic surveys now for nearly a half century. Barna’s research has consistently shown that we have a new group of millennial Christians. They often do not stay in a church fellowship or study the gospels and the totality of scriptures in the expression of their Christian faith.

The millennial Christians are those who have shunned what they refer to as organized religion and have moved eclectically through the scriptures extracting those passages, themes and favorite verses that they deem worthy of acceptation while disregarding or discarding the rest as not important or not utilitarian for their own use.

Thus is born – the fifth gospel.

Many millennials gave up most of their faith as freshmen in college. Being subject to intense peer pressure to accept a secularized version of everything, from creation to divinity, they fell like flies. FULL POST

Wasting Our Heritage – A Judgment America Cannot Escape

We are in the land of pompous pride, somewhere between the footprints on the moon and the Darwinian delusion; Americans have slid into the imaginary land of self-indulgent intellectual pride.

Scientists and cosmologists are the new priests and prophets of the pompous, promising a technological breakthrough that will leave us all breathless, even if the only titillation so far is some new handheld devices and cellphones.

Still fighting cancer, trembling at the oncoming of Ebola and standing starkly speechless at the gross and dehumanizing antics of the newly emerging group of the world’s latest Muslim fanatics we call ISIS or ISIL or anything they want us to - except Islam - according to President Obama.

We wait patiently for the mid-terms and the big change in 2016 when Obama will be escorted from the White House by the transition team of those readying for a new leader set to try his hand at the presidency. Remaining will be those who wonder why our constitution busting president was not escorted to jail long ago.

A shift to conservatism and a return to law may save some things, but many now question whether it’s too little and too late. Is the damage too great, has the corner been turned? FULL POST

Evolution’s Achilles’ Heels – Top Scientists Scrutinize the Weakness and Falsehoods of a Generation of Spurious Science

After the great Scopes Monkey trial circa 1925 the world eased back and decided that scientists and forensics would continue to carry the ball about origins, while those who thought the Bible was true would be sent to the back of the room where the dummies sit.

Real Christianity never fosters stupidity and soon those who believed the Bible started to use the empirical methods of the scientists to uncover amazing truths about origins that early forensics either overlooked or were not willing to see.

The result of years of ‘creation science’ has accumulated since 1925, but it has run head on directly into what is today called – political correctness.

PC is the equivalent of something better known as - ‘don’t confuse me with the facts.’

There are a lot of factors that fuel the present world view of evolution. Beyond peer acceptance is money. Typical schools like Harvard which has about 1.5 $billion in endowments and an average annual outlay of $68,000 for tuition and other costs, would hardly be expected to allow a view that might block the flow of cash - overnight.

‘Tiptoe thru the Tulips’ with John Kerry, Jimmy Carter and Uncle Joe Biden

John Kerry

“Knee deep in flowers we'll stray, we’ll keep the showers away, and if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight, Will you pardon me? And tiptoe through the tulips with me” -- Tiny Tim

“It is the United States’ Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change,” including to protect “vulnerable Muslim majority countries.” -- John Kerry

After viewing Dave Huntwork’s article on Canada Free Press, I knew I could add very little to Dave’s coverage, but I was haunted by the words of Tiny Tim’s 1968 classic “Tiptoe through the Tulips.”

There isn’t a single direct correlation between the two ideas, but there is no masking the naiveté and raw stupidity in both.

Kerry has revived echoes of William Howard Taft’s proclamation that the people of the Philippines were our “little brown brothers”  who would need years of our benevolent supervision to help them to morph into something akin to Anglo Saxon politically skilled and useful followers of democracy.
