Summoning Up Demons

I am hearing from Christian leaders who are struggling with Satanic pushback like never before.  They are experiencing discouragement, family struggles, health challenges, ministry conflict, and personal attacks. Frankly, they sense a horde of demons have been loosed to harass and discourage. I believe that is exactly what has happened.

The Two-State Paradigm Is Over

Those comments by Trump stood in stark contrast with remarks by the president earlier in his administration, when he said in a meeting in the White House with Netanyahu in February 2017 that he supports whatever solution the two parties decide. “I am looking at two-state, and one-state, and I like the one that both parties like. I’m very happy with the one that both parties like.”

Andy Stanley Suggests We Should Unhitch From The Ten Commandments

Is all the Bible relevant to a Christian worldview? One well-known pastor recently suggested it isn’t. But I beg to differ.   What’s the only passage in Scripture personally written down by God?

What Happened to My Church? – Jan Markell

Some churches open with a secular song, dim the lights, add some smoky fog, and have an atmosphere similar to the local bar. All of this is to enhance choruses that will be sung two-dozen times by hypnotized church members. I would learn that it is to attract “seekers” — a 21st Century term. Bill Hybels admitted that he came up with the term but confessed it didn’t work well in his church!
Organs and pianos were tossed out 25 years ago because they did not promote “church growth.” The over-age 55 crowd was on their own. Some churches threw them a bone with an 8 a.m. service for those with gray heads. That trend began “the great divide” between generations.

WND

Many contemporary churches have moved far into the field of social activism, oftentimes casting it as “social justice,” based on collectivist ideas and strategies that include the defense of left-leaning causes such as gay rights.

Evangelical churches are among them, and now some Christian leaders are responded with a “Statement on Social Justice & the Gospel.”

“We are deeply concerned that values borrowed from secular culture are currently undermining Scripture in the areas of race and ethnicity, manhood and womanhood, and human sexuality,” declares the statement.
