Those ‘Divisive’ Bible-believing Christians: Why Being Divisive is not so Bad After All…Good and Evil Division

I once had a Calvary Chapel pastor tell me that “truth always unites people”.  I then asked him why Jesus said the following: “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” (Luke 12:51-53) Calvary Chapel churches often have… Read More

Since when is it slander to reveal or speak out against slander?

Imagine this scenario: You see sin in the church from leaders.  You make a loving confrontation in obedience to God (Galatians 6:1; James 5:19).  Suddenly, your pastor who you love and have known for years calls you into a meeting and proceeds to tell you horrendous and degrading insults about yourself even to the point that you are weeping.  The abusive and cruel treatment leaves you feeling confused, condemned and unloved.

Freedom of Speech: Tactics Spiritual Abusers Use to Silence Bloggers and Help for Bloggers

Freedom of Speech! “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine,… Read More

What about the hypocrites? False grace and false love…

I am reminded of how God deals with sin in the church, and how He doesn’t take it lightly.  So often, these days, we hear ‘judge not’ and just tolerate and embrace continued wickedness in the church.  Peace at any cost; even the cost of purity.  This is so far from God’s heart.  The following is from Book of Acts, chapter five: “Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself,… Read More

True prophets warn, false prophets speak peace…how to recognize a false prophet

“How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has spurned the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?” (Hebrews 10)    When looking into the Word of God, it is the true servants of God, and the prophets of God, who reveal sin and transgression. As seen in Scripture, the pastors and prophets who only declared peace and prosperity, never making any righteous judgment calls or warning against transgression and evil,… Read More
