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

Works and Grace – Christians Living Better: Why Christians Should be Doers

“To do” or “not to do”? Sally is a zealous Christian who volunteers at the homeless shelter every week.  She visits the ill and writes books to help sexual abuse victims.  Sally reads the Bible and believes that putting it into practice is key. Sally’s friend from church, Jan, sees all the good deeds and active service that Sally does.  Instead of encouraging Sally and cheering her on, Jan gives Sally a hard time and tells her, “Why are you doing so much?  Take life easy, don’t worry about doing a thing”. … Read More

If God is so good and powerful, why does He allow evil and suffering? A helpful lecture by Dr. Gary DeWeese of Biola University…

“We require God to remove evil after evil until a paper cut is worst evil in world. How can there be a good God if He allows paper cuts?” (Dr. Gary DeWeese) The lecture entitled Solving the Problem of Evil by Dr. Garrett DeWeese; Biola University Christian Apologetics Department is extremely helpful when addressing the valid question, “If God is so good, why does he permit evil and suffering in the world?”  I listened to this lecture a while back while in the Christian Apologetics program, and it was outstanding. Dr. DeWeese… Read More

Just Another Day in Corinth: ‘Pastor’ David Devereaux Preaching on Homosexuals in Church and Clergy…False Teaching in the Church

Desert Spring United Methodist Church – Summerlin is not teaching according to sound doctrine, so please be careful.  I say this with love and sadness.  This is the same thing that happened at Corinth.  Remember, the Bible warns us: “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but… Read More

Discernment Detractors: Calling Good Evil

An online discussion pertaining to Calvary Chapel Spring Valley in Las Vegas: Here is what happens at many Calvary Chapels due to lack of accountability and the Moses Model (CC Distinctives) – More testimonies can be seen online at www.calvarychapelabuse.com

The above is a photo of a public testimony from a former Calvary Chapel Spring Valley member from early 2013.  There was a public, online forum where this testimony appeared.  Many people contributed their comments, questions and concerns to this online discussion.

Spiritual Abuse: Your Leader/Church is not Representative of God

Las Vegas Apologetics keeps hearing of more stories of spiritual abuse in the Las Vegas area and elsewhere. God seems to be yanking people out of churches.  These churches are often apostate and growing worse (God sees the future).  Often people are tempted to be mad at God for all the pain and hardship they went through at the hands of a pastor who was supposed to care for them.  Sometimes there was extreme cruelty, abuse and blacklisting.  Betrayals.  Pain! This sort of heartbreak does not go away overnight.  It is very… Read More

Why do so many professing Christians follow the status quo? It is human to stand with the crowd, it is divine to stand alone…

By Paul Pilgrim of Remnant Radio: It is human to stand with the crowd, it is divine to stand alone. It is man-like to follow the people, to drift with the tide. It is God-like to follow a principle, to stem the tide. It is natural to compromise conscience and follow the social and religious fashion for the sake of gain or pleasure. It is divine to sacrifice both on the altar of truth and duty. “No man stood with me, but all men forsook me” wrote the battle-scarred apostle in describing… Read More
