“Controversial Christian historian David Barton…misinterpretations…errors…and Glenn Beck” by Marsha West

According to Marsha West:

“If your family homeschools, or if you send your kids to a Christian school, or even if you are actively involved in Republican politics, listen to talk radio, and consider yourself a TEA party oriented person, the name David Barton has circled around your orbit at least a few times.” ~ Fred Butler, Hip & Thigh

“America’s favorite historian” (at one time) has become a controversial figure.  A few years ago David Barton was criticized for “cherry-picking” historical citations to present a Christian narrative of American history.  Not surprisingly Christian bashers on the Left accused Barton of misinterpretations and errors in his writing.

They weren’t alone in their criticism. A number of highly regarded conservative evangelicals and Catholics jumped on the bandwagon and began criticizing his misuse of information.

Jay W. Richards of the Discovery Institute was one such critic.  Richards, a Catholic, was so troubled by some of Barton’s writings that he invited a group of politically conservative evangelicals and Catholic historians to take part in an evaluation.  Dr. Gregg Frazer of the Masters College in Santa Clarita, CA agreed to participate.  Frazer, a conservative evangelical, authored The Religious Beliefs of the American Founders: Reason, Religion, and Revolution.   In his book he states his belief that America’s Founders were neither deists nor Christians, they were something in-between.  The term he uses is “theistic rationalist.”  When Frazer critiqued David Barton’s popular video America’s Godly Heritage he found many of its factual claims questionable.  For example: Barton’s claim that “52 of the 55 delegates at the Constitutional Convention were ‘orthodox, evangelical Christians.’” According to Frazer, Barton’s claim is bogus.  click here to continue reading article

Ted Cruz touts endorsement from NAR leader Mike Bickle (Spirit of Error blog)

You’re going to want  read the entire article by Holly Pivec, and you can link to it below. According to Pivec,

“It seems the campaign is aware of Bickle’s connection to the NAR, but not overly concerned about it. Any misgivings may have been allayed by the fact that a growing number of mainstream evangelicals have accepted speaking engagements at IHOP.

“Whatever the case may be, the campaign’s touting of Bickle’s endorsement reveals how influential this particular NAR leader has become and shows that the NAR has grown into a significant political force.” click here for rest of article

Does Christ’s warning apply to some in discernment ministries?

“To the angel of the church in Ephesus write:

The One who holds the seven stars in His right hand, the One who walks among the seven golden lampstands, says this:

‘I know your deeds and your toil and perseverance, and that you cannot tolerate evil men, and you put to the test those who call themselves apostles, and they are not, and you found them to be false;

and you have perseverance and have endured for My name’s sake, and have not grown weary.

But I have this against you, that you have left your first love.

Therefore remember from where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you and will remove your lampstand out of its place—unless you repent.

Yet this you do have, that you hate the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.’ (Revelation 2:1-7)

Media Sphere Promotes Another False Jesus

m'kayla's korner

One of Proclaim 16’s “premiere supporters” has plans to release a new movie in the springtime. The story line depicts a “young messiah named Jesus” coming into his own, so to speak, performing miracles.

The Young Messiah (link)

“Discover the Savior when He was a child.”

When the mystery of Jesus’s divinity begins to unfold in His early years, He turns to His parents for answers. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to its Creator? How do you teach the Teacher? How do you help the Savior who came to save you?

The trailer begins with “Mary” speaking, “Listen well, for I am only going to tell the story once.” We see her sitting under a tree with a young boy, as she continues. “One morning my room filled…

Stunning Statistics: “From Antichrist to Brother in Christ: How Protestant Pastors View the Pope”

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

According to Lighthouse Trails: The following article is posted for informational and research purposes and not as an endorsement of the sources. Both Christianity Today and LifeWay Research are proponents of the “new” spirituality (i.e., contemplative/emerging), which has helped to accelerate the current surge of interspirituality and ecumenism within the evangelical church and is, in effect, causing this major paradigm shift toward the merging of the Protestant/evangelical church with the Roman Catholic Church.

The information in this article is quite stunning.  We are seeing a major paradigm shift taking place.

By Lisa Cannon Green
Christianity Today

More than half of evangelical pastors say Pope Francis is their brother in Christ.

More than one-third say they value the pope’s view on theology, and 3 in 10 say he has improved their view of the Catholic Church.

Those are among the findings of a new study of 1,000 Protestant senior pastors, released this week from Nashville-based LifeWay Research.

Overall, the survey found that many Protestant pastors have taken a liking to Pope Francis.

Nearly 4 in 10 say the pope, known for his humility and concern for the poor, has had a positive impact on their opinions of the Catholic Church. Almost two-thirds view Pope Francis as a genuine Christian and “brother in Christ.” Click here to continue reading.

Follow Up: SBC President Ronnie Floyd, Featured Speaker at New Apostolic Reformation’s IHOP

Michelle Lesley

About two months ago, I was deeply grieved to learn that the president of my own denomination (the Southern Baptist Convention) would be be appearing as one of the featured speakers at the International House of Prayer’s (IHOP) Onething 2015 conference. (See my article here. If you’re not familiar with the demonic {and, no, that is not an exaggeration} doctrine and practices of IHOP, please examine the resources listed at the end of the article.)

I (and others I’m aware of) attempted several times to contact Dr. Floyd to plead with him not to do this, but was unable to reach him. Several of my readers suggested (and I prayed) that perhaps Dr. Floyd would use his speaking time at Onething to rebuke IHOP’s false doctrine as pastors are instructed by Scripture to do, or, at the very least, that he would preach the gospel in order that attendees…

IHOP-KC embraces ecumenism, Catholicism (video)

In this video, International House of Prayer leader Mike Bickle includes the Catholic religion in “the Body of Christ.”

Here is the link: click here

Here is what is on the video: Mike Bickle and the Catholic Ecumenical Track sponsor, Keith Major, emoting about the  Catholic Track at IHOP-KC’s Onething 2015 conference. Onething 2015 did indeed take place with Catholic participation.

“As for the message you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we are not going to listen to you! But rather we will certainly carry out every word that has proceeded from our mouths, by burning sacrifices to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her…” (Jeremiah 44:17)

 

 

The Most Excellent Way (out of bondage to sin)

“The Most Excellent Way” started in order to restore confidence to the addicted in the Word of God. In fact, the Bible provides a real solution for that struggle, whether it be with alcohol … drugs … sexual sin … pornography … whatever.
 
Since 1986, “The Most Excellent Way” has made its primary goal to declare the power that God makes available to a person to overcome addictions through the Cross.  We had become slaves to our addiction, but the Bible holds out this great promise:  that through Christ we can be made free.  Jesus promised:  “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed”  ~John 8:36.

SOZO -The seeking of the false Jesus.

DiscernIt

By Kim Olsen

Learning about SOZO occurred when I was working with a woman who was dealing with oppression and darkness. Many are deceived when they enter into a spiritual realm that they have no business delving into.

Today we easily find  mysticism, false teaching, divination, abuse of spiritual gifts, and love of experience trumping the Word of God. When you fall into this area the problem is that the spirit world will deliver. Those seeking to be in the “presence of Jesus” will indeed find themselves in the company of a entity but it will not be  Jesus of the Bible. Remember that “Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14.

Satan is the prince of darkness and well-meaning Christians will fall into the trap and deceitful workmen will also masquerade as “apostles of Christ.”  2 Corinthians 11:13

There are so many who love the Lord and want…
