Double Belonging / Christian Buddhism

Double Belonging / Christian Buddhism

Dalai Lama & Rob Bell - Double Belonging / Christian BuddhismDouble Belonging or Christian Buddhism

Romans 14:8 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)

“If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or we die, we belong to the Lord.”

The modernized version of Romans 14:8 sounds like this:

“If we live, we live to the Lord AND Buddha, and if we die, we die to the Lord AND Buddha. So then, whether we live or we die, we belong to the Lord AND Buddha”

One of the most dangerous and skewed peculiarities of the Emergent Church is its mistaken view of suffering. Though they may disagree with this statement and argue that their understanding of suffering is firmly based on what the Bible says about it, careful examination shows that their opinion of suffering is rooted in Buddhism or more precisely in “Christian Buddhism”. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

The Tail Between the Legs Calvinists

Tail Between Legs Calvinists

The Tail Between the Legs Calvinists

The expression “running away with your tail between your legs” has become quite relevant lately during my discussion with a group of Calvinists who attacked the DRC’s decision to accept same sex relationships and marriages, and also to accept gays as fully ordained ministers.  As usual, the discussion on this blog ended in a cul de sac because a group of “tail between the legs” Calvinists did not have the guts to answer my penetrating questions.

It all started like this:

A sister in the Lord sent me the following video that I watched immediately.

Die Stert Tussen die Bene Calviniste

Die mooi Afrikaanse uitdrukking “om met die stert tussen die bene weg te hardloop” het onlangs baie handig te pas gekom in my gesprek met ‘n klompie Calviniste wat die NG Kerk se besluit om selfde-geslag verhoudings en huwelike in die kerk te aanvaar en “gay” predikante toe te laat om as volledig gelegitimeerde predikante te preek, hewig aangeval het. Die gesprek het op hierdie blog, soos gewoonlik op ‘n cul de sac uitgeloop omdat ‘n klomp “stert-tussen-die-bene-Calviniste” nie die ruggraat het om indringende vrae te beantwoord nie.

Dit het alles so begin. ‘n Suster in die Here het die volgende video aan my gestuur waarna ek sommer onmiddellik gekyk het.

William Branham and his False Christ

William Branham and his False Christ

William Branham  & LawrieWilliam Branham and Paluseer Lawrie Mathukrishna

One of the most amazing things about Jesus Christ’s end time prediction in Matthew 24:24 is that millions of so-called Christians are doggedly following false prophets like William Branham and their false Christs despite his solemn warning in verse 4 of the same chapter. You may warn them with tears in your eyes and prove to them from Scripture or the well-documented quotes from the lips of their spiritual leaders that they are being deceived by Satan, and still tenaciously cling to their false prophets and false Christs. Why? There are several biblical reasons why they refuse to listen to God and those who earnestly warn them.

Spiritual Parrots

Spiritual ParrotsSpiritual Parrots

The Emergent Church is swamped with spiritual parrots. None of them have the originality to say something innovative.

1 John 4:5-6: Amplified Bible (AMP)

Spiritual ParrotsThey [who teach twisted doctrine] are of the world and belong to it; therefore they speak from the [viewpoint of the] world [with its immoral freedom and baseless theories—demanding compliance with their opinions and ridiculing the values of the upright], and the [gullible one of the] world listens closely and pays attention to them. We [who teach God’s word] are from God [energized by the Holy Spirit], and whoever knows God [through personal experience] listens to us [and has a deeper understanding of Him]. Whoever is not of God does not listen to us. By this we know [without any doubt] the spirit of truth [motivated by God] and the spirit of error [motivated by Satan]. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Keep it Short like the Cat in the Hat

Keep it Short like the Cat in the Hat

Keep it Short like the Cat in the HatKeep it Short like the Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss

Stephan Joubert pulled another rabbit from his hat when he advised the readers of his site to 
“Hou dit Kort”
  (Keep it Short). To Rabbit from the hatillustrate he refers to Dr Seuss’ book “The Cat in the Hat” which consists of only 223 words (some say it is 225 words).

As usual Joubert then tries his level best to apply a mundane marvel, in this case Dr Seuss’ short version literary prowess, to the Bible when he states that “Many words must convince others; even God too. No one less than Jesus taught us that many words do not impress God. In Matthew 6 we hear that God is not fascinated with a mass of words when we pray. He knows exactly what we need. Therefore, we don’t need to overpower Him with impressive words.”

Jesus said nothing of the sort. He did not warn us against lengthy prayers as such in Matthew 6 but against praying in public places to impress people with a vain repetition of words. This is what he said:

How to Stifle the Truth

How to Stifle the Truth

Sweeping Truth under the carpetStifling the Truth

For God’s [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative. (Romans 1:18)

Many Christians the world over expected something of eschatological proportions to happen on 28th September 2015 when a complete moon eclipse (a so-called blood moon) appeared in the sky. As usual, nothing happened. But wait a sec., something of disproportionate value did actually happen . . . Look, look, can you believe it, it is Doug of “The King of the Queens” soapy sweeping the truth under a carpet, and “nogal” on a blood moon.

Folks, this is really something out of the ordinary. I just received a report that Stephan Joubert has decided to stop sweeping the truth under the carpet and to prove his resolve he decided to distance himself from Doug, his wife and their parents of “The King of the Queens” soapy who habitually sweep the truth under the carpet. Now, if this is not something bigger and brighter than any other eschatological event on the calendar, then I don’t know what is.

The Key to Abundant Blessings?

The Key to Abundant Blessings?

Family Foundations International - blessingsThe Key to God’s Blessings

Craig Hill - blessings

Craig Hill

When Jude, the brother of Jesus, resolved to write to his brethren in regard to their common salvation, he felt compelled to urgently appeal to and exhort them to contend for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints [the faith which is that sum of Christian belief which was delivered verbally to the holy people of God].  Why? Because certain men of their own selves have crept in stealthily through a side door and are perverting the grace (the spiritual blessings and favour) of God into lawlessness and wantonness. (Jude 1:3-4)

Sadly, that time of which Paul warns in 2 Timothy 4 has already come. Precious few Christians endure sound doctrine and are opting for a more experiential and mystical false gospel rather than to contend for the faith that was once delivered unto the saints. They would rather heap to themselves teachers after their own lusts, having itching ears and an unhealthy gullible craving for more money, a better life and greater blessings. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Incarnational Spirituality

Incarnational Spirituality

Lesslie Newbigin - Incarnational SpiritualityWHAT IS INCARNATIONAL SPIRITUALITY?

Lesslie Newbigin offers one of the best definitions of incarnational spirituality. The following is an excerpt from “Assessing Missional Orientation: Observing Biblical Community, Incarnational Service, Bold and Humble Witness, and Reproduction of Disciples in The Light of an Awareness of the Holy Spirit” by Tim Volkman.

Newbigin pictures the church as God’s embassy in a specific place: “It will be a community that does not live for itself but is deeply involved in the concerns of its neighborhood.

It will be the church for the specific place where it lives, not the church for those who wish to be members of it” (1)

Each local congregation is an outpost of God’s kingdom and is to be a place from which the good news overflows in good action. Guder et al. state, “The Church represents the reign of God by its deeds as servants to God’s passion for the world’s life” (2) » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
