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

The forgotten verse of 1 Corinthians 11:19 about heresies and the crucial gift of discernment

http://www.bibletruths.net/archives/BTARO96.htm There are so many verses in the Bible that are over-preached and then many which are conveniently ignored by modern-day teachers who preach unity at any cost.  Yes, unity is a good thing, but to have true, Godly unity…it must be a unity based on Truth, not compromise. “For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.” (1 Corinthians 11:19) Paul said there “must be” heresies among believers.  The word heresies comes from the Greek word hairesisa (Strongs 139).  It means a… Read More

The power of love: what does love look like, actually? Am I loving people the way Jesus asked me to?

You know, so often people overuse and misuse the word love.  I’m sure I’ve done it before.  We say “love you”, but are we really loving people?  We sign our letters xoxoxoxo.  Is that love?  This was a question I had to ask myself.  If Jesus said that the number one command was to love God, and the second most important command was to love people – I had better make sure I am doing it!  So, what is love?  How do I know for sure that I am loving people?  What… Read More

Spiritual gifts: Understanding your spiritual gift of prophecy

http://coffeecakestudies.blogspot.com/2009/10/motivational-gift-of-prophecy.html The above link is, in general, an outstanding description of someone with the spiritual gift of prophecy as mentioned in the New Testament. I say “in general” because the author didn’t mention that the word prophecy from the Greek language and the Strong’s Concordance #4396 means to “forth-tell” (tell the truth in the Word of God) or to “fore-tell” (tell the truth before it happens or correctly predict something as Agabus did in the book of Acts).  This article is written by Kerry at Coffeecake Studies, and I found it to… Read More

Spiritual Myopia: Can a Christian be spiritually nearsighted? How to prevent?

Spiritual myopia.  What is it?  At the eye doctor the other day, I was reminded of nearsightedness.  That is why many people need glasses.  They can see objects close up but not far away.  The far away objects appear to them as a blur.  Until, the glasses are put on.  Then they can see the big picture.  LIfe gets a whole lot clearer when this happens. Before becoming a Christian, we are all walking around without the precious light of Christ, not really knowing there is a different way.  Jesus said He… Read More

Alert! Planning on attending the upcoming ‘Built to Last Conference’ with Benny and Wendy Perez in Las Vegas? Read this first! Why does Beni Johnson hug the graves of dead people? Necromancy in the church?

According to a Christian Post article, Benny Perez, pastor of the Church at South Las Vegas, will be hosting a three-day pastors’ conference on November 5-7, 2013. Encouraging you to research before you go. Yesterday, I was investigating Beni Johnson (Bill Johnson’s wife; Bethel Church in Redding, California).  Oddly, she had posted a photo of herself hugging a grave in a cemetery on her Twitter account for many people to see (see photo at the end of this article).  The Bible explicitly warns on the matter of interacting with the dead, sitting… Read More
