Written by Paul Washer. I haven't looked at the content, but I trust Peters and Washer to know good material. Take a look and see it if suits you.
Thank you Pastor, for developing good materials for us. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. (Romans 12:11)
What does Pastor mean anymore?
A Pastor friend of mine from Maine posted this. I read it and I thought it was excellent. I don't know the pastor who wrote it nor his church, but this particular article was very good.
Disembodied Bodies, Mark Driscoll, and How “Pastor” Has Lost All Meaning
With one simple click of the mouse, Christians can be pastored by their favorite pastor. Regardless of the miles between them, open your web browser and in just a few keystrokes, your preferred preacher is pastoring your soul…except, not really.This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed. (1 Corinthians 4:1)
Tory MP comes out as atheist.
A Minister of Parliament (MP) of the Tory Party 'came out' as an atheist. He said that there is much pressure to at least pretend to believe in God. He said he can 'come out' now because his term is ending and he will not run again.
The MP was speaking at a debate on a private members bill which calls for prayers to be read at the start of council meetings. At the start of his speech, he noted that,
At a meeting of Lake Worth City Commission last month, the invocation was given by an atheist called Preston Smith. And he began his invocation with the words, 'May the efforts of this Council blend the righteousness of Allah with the all-knowing wisdom of satan.' The fact that the effect of the public sector equality duty on this bill is at local authority’s choosing to hold religious observance in their meetings will not then be able lawfully to discriminate against the observances of the religion of Satanism.What the MP does not realize is that he is in exactly the same camp as the people who worship Allah and satan.
Therefore you are great, O LORD God. For there is none like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears. (2 Samuel 2:22)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Earthquakes in Diverse places!
4th straight day of earthquakes in Conn.
A 2.2-magnitude earthquake has rattled eastern Connecticut again. In what's becoming a daily seismic event, the Weston Observatory of Boston College said the earthquake occurred at about 4:40 a.m. Thursday near Plainfield, where previous earthquakes were recorded. It says two minor earthquakes were recorded on Wednesday and another on Tuesday. Several were recorded on Monday and last week, too.Connecticut officials coordinate earthquake preparation
After daily earthquakes in eastern Connecticut over the past week, officials have met to discuss ways the state can respond and residents can prepare.For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains. (Matthew 24:7-8)
SBC in full-on meltdown?
SBC-affiliated Beth Moore is allowed to speak God's alleged prophetic word with no rebuke from the allegedly most conservative denomination. Perry Noble of the Southern Baptist Convention's NewSpring church in SC re-wrote the ten commandments in a Christmas Eve sermon he delivered. As James Duncan at The Pajama Pages wrote,
On Christmas Eve, Perry Noble gifted the world a rewritten Ten Commandments. In so doing, he contradicted Scripture, celebrated his ignorance of the Bible, and ultimately rejected the gospel.And LifeWay engages in fraud by trading on God's word in heaven tourism for filthy lucre, causing an outcry and forced to pull one of the heaven tourism books, The Onion weighs in with a (deservedly) mocking opinion:
Publisher Pulls Book after Boy Admits He didn't Go To Heaven
And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. (2 Peter 2:2)
PS: Phil Johnson has published further statements from Tyndale related to the Heaven book which show demonstrably the publishing house knew the boy had repeatedly said he not gone to heaven and are lying about not knowing.
