Derailing Deception

The article below, written by Dave Hunt of Berean Call ministries, references many of the false teachings that have come to the forefront of todays Christianity. It is worth the read.

My response, first posted on www.RaptureForums.com, is reiterated below:


In reading this and in knowing of the many "other" so-called evangelical leaders (not my mentors) I have to believe that the root of all of this false teaching and disbelief and distrust of the Scripture goes back to the lie in the garden:

Genesis 3:1, Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

The lie of course being to question God. All of the above in Bro, Hunts article, question the Scripture, thereby question God.

I just finished reading a book by a very prominent scholar, John H. Walton, "Covenant.&…

The Awesome Restraint of God - Part Five the Restraint of the Church

The last restraint that I would like to point out is the Restraint of the Church. Truly, Jesus was right when He said, "the gates of Hell would not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). The Church is the crowning glory of the Lord Jesus. He is the Head of the body, the Church, and High Priest over it. It is unfortunate, for so many, that they profess themselves Christians but will not take part in it. It pains the heart of Jesus when they choose to ignore the greatest organism ever--one He set up for their edification. Too many people find themselves content with walking an aisle. Hence, they deny themselves the favor of God by refusing to fellowship with other believers. They seek a future and a hope but are not willing to submit their heart and life to find out what that future is. There is no one on earth that can convince me that God can use them, to the extent that he called them, if they do not attend Church.

A Titanic Mistake by Tim (soundingthealarm on raptureforums.com)

Many of us have had a hard time articulating how we feel in our hearts about the Florida Pastor who wants to burn the Koran. As I read this I was moved with the love this brother has for the Lord.  I felt his message should be shared because he speaks the truth and helps us to better relate and express what we believers also feel in our hearts during these alarming days of choice.  I hope it blesses you as much as it blessed my wife and I.  I post it just as he wrote it.  Mike

The Awesome Restraint of God - Part Four the Restraint of Grace

At this time I would like us to consider the Fourth Restraint in the series, Grace.

God has placed what I call an umbrella of Grace upon all of mankind. In referring to those days of the end when God would unseal the words of prophecy in the Book of Daniel we find an interesting statement that bears quoting. Daniel 12:10 says:

"Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand."

In this passage of Scripture we have a contrast between the wicked and the wise. We are told the wicked shall do wickedly as opposed to the wise who would understand (ie. the words of the prophecy). It also states that the wicked would not understand. I see two reasons for this lack of wisdom or illumination: First I believe that a person cannot understand spiritual truth unless he is allowed to do so by the Holy Spirit. Much in the same way that a Christian is not allowed to go on past elementary t…
