So sorry for the short blog today. I am in the middle of something and I can't concentrate on anything else right now...again, apologies. Here is a starter paragraph from Mike Gendron at Proclaiming the Gospel. It is an excellent essay. I recommend reading the entire piece.
The Need for Discernment
Written by Mike Gendron on 18 April 2013.
"When asked, "What will be the signs of your return?', the Lord Jesus mentioned several signs, but he repeated one sign three times. There will be false teachers, false prophets and false Christs who will deceive even the elect if possible (Mat. 24:4,11,24). Knowing this we must examine everything carefully so that we can hold fast to that which is good and abstain from every form of evil (1 Thes. 5:21). We need to identify and expose religious leaders who are servants of the devil carrying out his goal is to deceive the world (2 Cor. 11:13-15)."

Glenn Beck fulfilled his promise to go public with an angle to the Boston Marathon bombing, which he had stated would have the potential to bring down the United States because of a massive coverup. He updated it here with more details. I admire Mr Beck;s fervency in love for our country and doing all he can to bring truth tot he public. I remind Christians however (and Mr Beck is a Mormon, and thus not a Christian) that our home is heaven, and undue national fervency over our nation is unwarranted. We love America, but we love our heavenly home more. Which nation are we doing more for? Please don't get wrapped up in details of government conspiracies and coverups. They exist. But the truth is ever harder to find with a compliant media and because of the days in which we live. One cold go crazy trying to get to the bottom of a quicksand pit, all the while taking our eyes off Jesus and what we should be doing for HIS kingdom.
