Interview with a vampire (heretic)

February 29, 2008

The good people over at CRN have done it again!  Just when I thought they had exhausted their sizable reach, they turn up yet another article about Brian McLaren (heretic).  How do they do it?  Their staff must consist of literally tens of people searching through news journals, newspapers and the internet to find stories that mean something to me.  Well done CRN!

Now on to the article.  If you take the time to read it, and I mean with the discernmentalist eye, you will find heretical remarks all through Brian McLaren’s (heretic) comments.  First he says that Jesus would use a Blackberry?  Are you kidding me?  Jesus is God and God doesn’t need a puny electronic device to remember what he is going to do.  So Brian McLaren (heretic) is mocking our Lord.  Also, he says that Jesus would be concerned with the planet and homeless people.  As John MacArthur points out,

 “That salt and light are not moral influence, but gospel witness and the power of holy living. They always say well, we have to be salt and light, we have to be salt and light, have to be salt and light. Well, the imagery of Jesus in the sermon on the mount with regard to salt and light is the image of the shining forth of truth. That’s the light. And the preservative of godly living. We are light when we proclaim the light, and manifest our good works. That’s what He says. And glorify our Father who is in heaven. And we are salt when we are a preservative, because of the virtue and the godliness of our lives.”

In another place John MacArthur states it this way;

“He (Jesus) did not seek social change.”

 To quote C. H. Spurgeon Himself;

“Well, it is the tendency of the times to decry preaching, but it is “the foolishness of preaching” which is to change the world.”

 In Other words Jesus didn’t come to change the world or to worry about the homeless (paraphrase is mine).  So how can Brian McLaren (heretic) sit there and tell us to take care of the homeless.  Not only that, but he contradicts his whole emerging thought process by saying he wouldn’t give someone money, just talk to him and love him.  I thought you cared for the homeless Brian!

I will wrap this up with my views.  It is up to Ken Silva to keep this heretic’s schedule in the forefront of our minds.  I personally don’t want to go to a bookstore and run into him.  That would make me feel dirty.  And all you who know the TRUTH know that Brian McLaren (heretic) is a heretic and so he is not allowed to say anything about Jesus.  As CRN rightly points out, “he probably doesn’t even know the Lord.”  And how could you when you are more worried about the planet, the homeless, poverty, world peace and religious understanding, then pointing out other people’s sins?  This is a no-brainer people! 

I am glad God didn’t make me like them!

Tozer Devotional: Being Participants of Truth!

February 28, 2008

I would normally not cut and paste from another website, but Tozer is so inspirational I wanted to share the last part of his series on Truth.
Here are parts one, two, three.
Thank God this sounds nothing like those Emergents! Ken Silva has many articles on the evils of “Christian Mystics” so we should be wise to avoid any and all who have something to do with them.
I want to thank God that men like Tozer and Ken Silva and Ingrid of Slice of Laeodcea would never promote those “Christian Mystics” we have great men like St. Gregory of Sinai who would never have participated in that sort of “New Age” nonesense.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth,

Chapter #28
To Be Understood, Truth Must Be Lived
Being Participants in Truth
Truth cannot aid us until we become participators in it. We only possess what we experience. St. Gregory of Sinai, who lived in the fourteenth century, taught that understanding and participation were inseparable in the spiritual life. “He who seeks to understand commandments without fulfilling commandments, and to acquire such understanding through learning and reading, is like a man who takes a shadow for truth. For the understanding of truth is given to those who have become participants in truth (who have tasted it through living). Those who are not participants in truth and are not initiated therein, when they seek this understanding, draw it from a distorted wisdom. Of such men the apostle says ‘the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit,’ even though they boast of their knowledge of truth.” Here is a simple but neglected doctrine that should be restored to its rightful place in the thinking and teaching of the Church. It would work wonders.
Prayer
Lord, teach me what it means to participate in Your truth that through it I may be free.
Scripture
The Lord says: ‘These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship is made up only of rules taught by men.’
— Isaiah 29:13
Thought
Some of us measure our commitment to Christ by the truth we mouth and the rules we keep–rules which may be man-made and not from God. But truth must be tasted through living if we are to be participants in it.

 


The Emerging Church tied to Gay Porn Murder!

February 27, 2008

 copenhagen-pride-parade-15.jpg

Here is picture of what you will find at an emerging church service!

One of my sources as revealed that the emerging church is tied to the recent gay porn murder case. In the recent article the title revealed to my discernmentalist eye the connection.

New Evidence Emerges In Gay Porn Producer Murder

Here is a bit from the article:

“On the hard drive they found a photograph of a man… “

It goes on to state that these emerging people

“…were charged in Virginia with racketeering, conspiracy to launder money and conspiracy to receive money from the earnings of prostitution.”

This is why we need to promote more War and less Love. These emergents are such vile and disgusting people that would even show up on sites like this and be promoted by “murdering gay porn producers”. What is next married sex on stage instead of a sermon? Like Ingrid I give it 5 years.

You all should thank God for this site and sites like CRN’s great and important research such as this article!

Such regulations indeed have an appearance of wisdom,

Starbucks is an emergent church like entity

February 26, 2008

starbucks-logo-copy.gif

We here at the Online Discernmentalist Mafia see a parallel with Starbucks shutting down for three hours to re-train its employees, with the emergent/seeker movement in the church.  Starbucks feels like it is losing its way, while we know that the emergent church has already lost its way.  Starbucks is worried about the competition of McDonald’s and Dunkin Donuts, while the emergent church is worried about being part of the post-modern culture.  Starbucks started serving breakfast and accommodating everyone, while the emerging church takes in everyone,  while they are still sinning. 

We here will not take three hours of to re-train, since we need no re-training.  God has given us everything we need in the form of inerrant scripture that has been validated by various people including Ken Silva, John MacArthur, and the pyro-guys.  Paul told us to pray without ceasing and that doesn’t mean to take three hours off, like the emergent church guys would do.    We will stand on the street corners and preach how everyone who hears us is a sinner, especially those who would “call” themselves Christians, for they are the worst, and we won’t take three hours off.  We will work the Way of the Master formula to perfection since it is the only approved way of evangelism and is taken straight from the approved versions of the most inerrant scriptures.  We will not take three hours off.  We have TRUTH on our side and so we can’t lose.  Let those emergent “churches” take time off to train and learn new things, let them do new sermon series, let them have Starbucks coffee in their church, and let God rain down his fire to those wolves in sheep’s clothing.  I don’t want to be anywhere around when God’s wrath comes down on those sinners, who think they are fine because they love everyone and follow Christ’s example, in the form of fire and sulfur.  Many churches will be in flames on that day and pillars of salt will litter the landscape as these “Christians” look back on their homosexually loving churches. 

We will not take three hours off because God shines his light on the defenders of his TRUTH, which could be compromised if we take three hours off.

May the peace of Christ be with you, and all who think like me.

Looky At Me “Christianity”: Half Million of “elitist” Christians fast to show their superiority over non fasting Christians!

February 24, 2008

1africa.jpg

Result of “look at me” empathy based Christian faith. Notice no Gospel there?

CRN has a great post about those so called elitist Christians Bob Dewaay wrote about in his post: How Pietism Deceives Christians  of course it is all about this article at the Christian Post:

Some 500,000 American teens are joining a 30-hour nationwide “famine” to raise money to fight hunger around the world starting at noon Friday.

Teens will fast for 30 hours to get a real taste of hunger that millions of children and families around the world experience each day. Participants aim to raise more than $12 million this year through World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine.

“In 2005 I did my first 30 hour famine. It was an amazing experience…to feel what these kids feel every day and to learn about what they go through to survive is so amazing,” said one participant named Jessie…

 


Now that is all we need! How dare these so called “Christians learn empathy by passing up a meal for 30 hours. And then raise millions to feed people in Africa? Good grief they don’t need food, they need the Gospel.  I mean they most probably have AIDS and are dying anyway. The Gospel is what they need and that will fix all their problems. If they reject it then they deserve the wrath and anger of our most Wrathful and Angry God!

Someone needs to give real guidance to these kids and get these kids picketing an abortion clinic or gay pride parade or a U2 Concert!  That is how the REAL GOSPEL is to be given; with lots of hell fire and damnation!

 As the Good Book says, “Not everyone who says to me, `Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven,

Rick Warren and Brian McLaren Save Bigfoot! Sort of!

February 22, 2008

bigfoot-get-saved-copy.jpg

Discernmentalist News-

Rick Warren known for his heretical book the Purpose Driven Life which presents the soft-shell version of the Gospel and teaches the lie, God has a purpose for you, and Brian McLaren who has written many heretical books that tell people false teachings such as the Kingdom of God is “Here and Now” saved Bigfoot while hunting together for new paradigms to push on churches for church growth. Bigfoot had read The Purpose Driven Life and found certainty in his world of savage beasts and wild berries, but then after reading A New Kind of Christian lost all certainty and began looking for Emergent Villages to ravage. Brian McLaren (a heretic) and Rick Warren (another heretic) were able to sooth the savage beast and assure him God had a plan for him and that even in his uncertainty that we can still bring the Kingdom of God to all and be little Images of Christ.

 Yet, all was saved when Rick Warren (a heretic) accidentally regressed and dropped a copy of John Macarthur’s “Truth Wars” that Rick and Brian were deconstructing and as he read it was so struck by the magnitude of Truth and began spouting anti emergent slogans at Brian McLaren (a heretic). Brian McLaren then in a fit of rage began to pummel Bigfoot in a sicken display of Emergent violence.

 The Picture was take while Bigfoot just finished reading John Macarthur’s book. Rick Warren was off in the bushes fulfilling another purpose and realized he must have dropped John Macarthur book and was having trouble finding weeds to use instead.

 Bigfoot was quoted as saying, ” Arrrgh, herrrr mmmhhh roooo.” No one knows what that means.


Brian McLaren declares the Kingdom of God is here and now!

February 21, 2008

I just read Brian McLaren and the Gospel of Here & Now by Greg Gilbert and he points out that Brian Mclaren is preaching a Gospel that states that the Kingdom is “Here and Now”.

And I say how perverse of a Gospel is that!?! We know that the Truly Anointed Preacher/Pastor/Teacher/ of the Only True and Faithful Gospel, John MacArthur states the Kingdom is “only spiritual now and will come in the future” which is stated in the video post at CRN. Listen carefully as he carefully picks apart Brian and then sets us all straight that “the Kingdom of God is not here and now” but “in the future and only spiritual” and is all about getting people into heaven.

How dare anyone pervert the gospel and say we should live as Kingdom people here and now. These “emergents” and their sick social (we want justice) gospel that wants to feed the hungry and give water to those who thirst! They do not need clothes or food or water, they need the Gospel of the angry God of wrath who hates sinners!

 To quote MacArthur:

Men cannot understand. They cannot seek grace and salvation unless they are affected with the dread of the wrath of God that is upon them. Unless men sense they are in grave danger there’s no pressure applied to them to change.

Now, sometimes when you talk about God being a God of wrath, certain people get disturbed. And they don’t understand how God can be a God of anger and God can be a God of wrath and God can be a God of fury, a God of terror. But that’s because they don’t understand God.

Thank God men like MacArthur would never teach such a false thing as the Kingdom of God is at hand or the Kingdom of Heaven in near or worse that the Kingdom of God is within us! That all sounds like “new age” gobbledygook! 

The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them,
