The Bible is the most amazing, most awesome and most wonderful book ever written. No other book foretells and describes future events so accurately than the Bible. It even foretells how Stephan Joubert of ekerk and echurch fame will not be able to change his spots despite his emphatic denial that he and Leonard Sweet no longer bear the spots of the Emergent Church critters.
Jeremiah 13:23 Amplified Bible (AMP)
Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also can you do good who are accustomed and taught [even trained] to do evil.
Who could have guessed that not only the Bible but also a kiddy’s story written by Rudyard Kipling would relate to perfection how Stephan Joubert and Leonard Sweet never changed their spots – despite them having told us that they had discarded the Emergent Leopard’s spots – and have since learned to blend in with the usual run-of-the-mill critiques of the Emergent Church.
Could it be that Baviaan in Kiplings story advised them “The people (you have been misleading and have since wised up to your deception because you can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time) has gone away for a change and my advice to you (Stephan Joubert and Leonard Sweet) is to change too.” The question is – have they changed?

These are the real terrorists. They are not killing your body. They are killing your soul and smiling all the way to the bank.
The recent terrorist attacks in France have once again drawn the world’s attention to the fact that we are living in a very dangerous world. In fact, the understatement of the year would probably be: “Terrorism is on the increase worldwide.”
A recent study shows that the fatalities linked to terrorism are up 60 percent. Alan Cowell of the New York Times reports (18 November 2014).
LONDON — As Western governments grapple with heightened apprehension about the spread of Islamic militancy, an independent study on Tuesday offered little solace, saying the number of fatalities related to terrorism soared 60 percent last year.
Pointing to a geographic imbalance, the report by the nonprofit Institute for Economics and Peace said five countries — Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan and Syria — accounted for four-fifths of the almost 18,000 fatalities attributed to terrorism last year. Iraq had the bloodiest record of all, with more than 6,300 fatalities. . . . [Thomas says: It proves that Islamists are killing more of their own people than anyone else).
“In 2013, terrorist activity increased substantially with the total number of deaths rising from 11,133 in 2012 to 17,958 in 2013, a 61 percent increase,” the report said. “Over the same period, the number of countries that experienced more than 50 deaths rose from 15 to 24. This highlights that not only is the intensity of terrorism increasing, its breadth is increasing as well.”

Charlie Hebdo Attack – Analysis
By Vernon Gray
France is one of Islam’s greatest appeasers. France controlled several Islamic countries in the days of their African empire. Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Sudan, Guinea, Niger, Mauritania, Gambia Ivory Coast and Libya were all under French control. For all its official rhetoric, France has done precious little to stem the growing tide of Jew-hatred and anti-Israelism that has gripped that country.
Mass emigration of French Jewry, prompted primarily by French Islamists, is met with muted response and inaction by French officials who appear either indifferent to their plight or at a loss to devise a coherent strategy to effectively deal with the phenomena.

The more I read Stephan Joubert’s articles on his sites (ekerk and echurch) the more evident it becomes that he has no confidence in the One who said,
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18).
No one in his right mind can miss the meaning of his words “I will.” It simply means that “He will” and
not “you will” or “they will” or “we will.” All the other “wills” besides His “I will” usually make a huge mess of things.
Think of it: The One who created everything and still upholds all things by the word of his power (Hebrews 1:1-3), is the very same One who said “I will build my church.”
Note carefully, He did not say “I will build . . .” the Dutch Reformed Church, the Reformed Church, the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of the Latter Day Saints, the Lutheran Church, the Anglican Church, the Apostolic Faith Mission Church, the Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches, the Emerging Church or any of the other 33 000 so-called Christian churches in existence today.

Only The Elect are Lost; The Reprobate are Not
Can you Solve this Riddle?
I assume you already know that the Reformed fraternity is celebrating the 500th anniversary of John Calvin’s birth on 10 July 1509 this year. You don’t? Well, then it’s about time you dust off the cobwebs from your history books.
First off, I must warn you that this is a Calvinistic riddle and they are usually tougher than a genuine South African Boere-toffee. Those of you who do not know the real meaning of the words ‘world, whomsoever, and all men’, should not even try to solve the riddle and rather bow out right now.
OK! Let’s set the scene with a few very potent quotes from the lips of some of the most famous and distinguished Calvinists.
Many professing a desire to defend the Deity from an invidious charge admit the doctrine of election, but deny that any one is reprobated (Bernard. in Die Ascensionis, Serm. 2).
This they do ignorantly and childishly since there could be no election without its opposite, reprobation. God is said to set apart those whom he adopts for salvation.
It were most absurd to say, that he admits others fortuitously, or that they by their industry acquire what election alone confers on a few.
Those, therefore, whom God passes by he reprobates, and that for no other cause but because he is pleased to exclude them from the inheritance which he predestines to his children (John Calvin: Institutes of the Christian Religion Book 3, Chapter 23, Sec. 2226)

It really upsets me when so called ‘Christian’ ministries lie. It upsets me even more when so called ‘Christian’ ministries charge for information. One such so called ‘Christian’ research group does both, they lie and they charge you.
Rema Marketing (Global Watch Weekly) has been sending me emails about their research for a couple of years now. In the beginning they never charged for their information, it was free. Then things started to change. When you clicked on a report all of a sudden you were transferred to a page that said the following in BIG RED Lettering:
“The Evidence Provided Below on [this article] is Under a threat of Being Taken Offline. You Must Act Now to Receive it…Fast”
“WARNING: This Report is under threat of being taken offline due to its content. It is important that you read below to know how to access the rest of the information before the Report is taken offline.”
“WARNING: This Report is under threat of being taken offline due to its content. It is important that you order below Now, to access the report before we are forced to take it offline.”
This is called lying. It’s a marketing ploy to make you think that you need to buy their information QUICKLY because it’s going to be removed from the internet by the evil powers that be. What a load of nonsense. If ever there was a lie here is one.
