How to spot a liberal seminary, storms, political discourse

Clint Archer has a good article on How to Spot a Liberal Seminary. If you were wondering how so many false pastors get into churches, and then turn around and corrupt the sheep, this is how. I personally believe we have passed a tipping point, with so many pastors as the tares choking out the real wheat. Pastors who don't know the bible have to come from somewhere. Liberal seminaries are one place from which they spew.

Do you think there are more huge storms lately? Superstorm Sandy has already been upstaged by "the biggest storm ever, "Typhoon Haiyan. Here is an editorial looking at the last few years' worth of storms and comparing them to the prophesied birth pangs. Data don't lie.

Speaking of storms, another usual occurrence occurred. The Huffington Post commented on the recent rash of tornadoes in the Midwest yesterday. Their line, "Illinois was struck the hardest by the unusually powerful late-season tornadoes" contains the by-now usual superlatives I've been talking about. With each passing storm, each one larger than the last, or more unusual, or more powerful, we read of superlatives. In the HuffPo piece, we read three at once; 'Unusual", "powerful" and "late-season".

We've gone from this:

"The citizens of the U.S. are responsible for the greatest trust ever confided to a political society" ~James Madison

And this:

"The jaws of power are always open to devour, and her arm is always stretched out, if possible, to destroy the freedom of thinking, speaking, and writing." ~John Adams

To this. This is what passes for public, political discourse lately:

The scriptures say-
"Whoever guards his mouth preserves his life; he who opens wide his lips comes to ruin." (Proverbs 13:3)

"Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving." (Ephesians 5:4)

  1. Liberal seminaries, yup, that's definitely a huge part of where all these unbiblical preachers and teachers emanate.

    Even decent preachers and teachers learn error from off the mark seminaries.
