JOEL OSTEEN: Your best parking space now.

John MacArthur lays down the truth about Joel Osteen. Don't hate me for posting this unless you simply believe we should just allow a universalist, word-faith, false teacher to continue to deceive millions of people and turn them AWAY from and AGAINST Jesus Christ! Joel Osteen is one of the most dangerous of today's false teachers because of his quiet, happy demeanor. Yet, scripture plainly shows he should be avoided. Here's John MacArthur giving some prime examples. If you can still think Joel Osteen is a preacher of truth after these few examples, PLEASE tell me why in the comments. I'd love to hear your thoughts.



Thanks to www.TruthSource.net for the nice editing job.

Todd Bentley Officially "In Ministry" Again! ...because Rick Joyner says so?

Today, in Rick Joyner's "MoringStar eNewsletter", Rick included a link to the video of his announcement that Todd Bentley is now oficially restored to ministry!

It has been a long road (or 15 months) paved with a couple-dozen worthless videos giving no valid or good biblical reason that Todd should come anywhere close to a pulpit again. He is still living in an adulterous re-marriage. He has still not repented from his heretical and unbiblical teachings. He still hides the things he has said, and changes his words and details of stories he's told in the past. The only things that have changed about Todd Bentley are his address and his bed partner. In fact, Bud Press, over at Christian Research Service tried to get a few answers out of Todd and failed. I also was in line to try to get some answers from Todd during the Lakeland mess but he decided to commit adultery, imploding the "revival" before our interview was finalized. At this point, forget the interview... I'd rather hear Todd's answers to Bud's six questions below!


Six Simple Questions for Todd Bentley

Maybe it was just a glitch in Todd Bentley's computer. Or, maybe Bentley accidentally hit delete instead of post. Or, maybe Bentley actually read the comments and chose to hit delete before his followers had a chance to read them.

Whatever the case may be, stuff disappears, including the following October 19 comments on "The Todd Bentley Blog" at http://www.freshfireusa.com/blog :

__________________________________________________________________________

Dear Todd:

On your blog in your "Welcome to the website" page, you state that "The purpose of my blog is to share with you my personal thoughts, feelings, status, revelations, and updates on the ministry and restoration" ("The Todd Bentley Blog" at http://www.freshfireusa.com/blog/?p=3 ).

I would appreciate your sharing your personal thoughts, feelings, status, revelations, and updates on the following six simple questions.

1. Over the years you have claimed multiple visitations from Jesus Christ. However, in Matthew 24:23 & 26, the Jesus of the Bible warned: "Then if anyone says to you, 'Behold, here is the Christ,' or 'There He is,' do not believe him" and "So if they say to you, 'Behold, He is in the wilderness,' do not go out, or, 'Behold, He is in the inner rooms,' do not believe them."

Question: In light of what Jesus said and 2 Corinthians 11:3-4, who do you think is right, you or Jesus?


2. On June 7, 2008, you read a "prophetic word" from Wendy Alec publicly to your viewing audience, and said that the "Lord" had spoken to Wendy and that "Jesus Christ" would visit the Lakeland revival "in person" on Sunday, June 8, 2008 ( http://www.christianresearchservice.com/WendyAlec1.htm ).

Question: Since the prophecy was a dismal failure, do you feel you should repent and apologize publicly?

3. On page 27 of your January 2008 book, Journey Into The Miraculous, you claim you encountered a giant, muscle-bound "Jesus" during a vision/trance (http://www.christianresearchservice.com/ToddBentley9.htm ).

Question: Does your vision/trance agree or disagree with Isaiah 53:2?

4. On page 67 of your October 2008 book, Kingdom Rising: Making the Kingdom Real in Your Life, you claim that during a mission trip you and your team encountered drug addicts and gangsters while preaching in the ghettos of South Africa ( http://www.christianresearchservice.com/ToddBentley13.htm ).

When the gangsters disagreed with you, you state that "I guarantee that if God doesn't touch you, that I will say that God isn't real."

Question: In light of Psalm 10:4, Psalm 14:1, and Psalm 53:1, what are your personal thoughts on your statement?

5. On page 67 of your book, Kingdom Rising: Making the Kingdom Real in Your Life, you state that "We can preach the Gospel all day long, but that won't win souls."

Question: In light of 1 Corinthians 9:19-24, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, 2 Timothy 4:1-2, Romans 1:16-17, and Romans 10:14, do you still maintain that "We can preach the Gospel all day long, but that won't win souls"?

6. Finally, on page 162 of your book, Journey Into The Miraculous, you state that "I thank God for my friendship with Patricia [King], and for how God used her as an instrument to ordain me into the ministry--but I always will know that the call came from God. I've since been ordained in Canada by my local church, and through the Christian Minister's Association. In the U.S., I'm recognized as a minister of the Gospel through World Ministry Fellowship in Texas" (http://www.christianresearchservice.com/ToddBentley12.htm).

But according to a top official from the Christian Ministers Association (CMA), you were not ordained through the CMA, and have never been a member of that association. Also, as of April 7, 2009, your membership "papers" in the World Ministry Fellowship (WMF) were removed.

Question: Are there any current "revelations" or "updates" about your ordinations you care to share?

Thank you, Todd. I look forward to your reply at your earliest possible convenience.

Sincerely in Christ,

Bud Press, Director

VIDEO: Advice from Alfie and me... for Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood does a great job. Their staff and equipment efficiently process millions of perfectly healthy babies reducing them to perfectly dead, less bothersome babies. They kill millions of babies a year with relatively few complications. They suck all of the blood and baby parts directly into garbage bags, out of the "patient's" view, in a clean, white sterile environment. They have perfected the art of murder... AND made it legal and socially acceptable, too! If they deserve credit for anything, they deserve credit for doing what they do with efficiency.

They have an article on their website entitled "Five Ways to Prevent Abortion..."

I can give them ONE way that would be guaranteed to be effective, if they are really interested.

If Planned Parenthood would just change the hidden aspect of their processing,... if they instead laid all those millions of dead babies out on tables to be viewed by the mothers before their "proceedures",... perhaps, just maybe, a few women would suddenly see their "freedom to choose" in the light of its consequences; a real, dead, human baby boy or girl!

Then again, Planned Parenthood isn't interested in ideas that might be bad for business.

Ray Comfort has produced a great little video to show how Hollywood has cleaned up some of its past "mistakes". I guess it's not acceptable anymore to call abortion murder. I wonder what changed between 1966 and 2004? (*cough*Roe v. Wade*cough*)

What must I do to be saved?!

"In Acts 16:30 this question was asked by the jailer of a prison in which Paul and Silas were imprisoned for preaching the gospel. God sent an earthquake so that all the doors of the prison were opened. The jailer, thinking his prisoners had escaped, was about to commit suicide when Paul called to him and said: "Do thyself no harm, for we are all here. At this, the man cried: "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" Back came the answer from the lips of Paul: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved!"

Is this your question, my friend? Has God shown you that you are a lost and guilty sinner, helpless to save yourself by any efforts of your own? If so, thank God, for you are just the kind of person for whom the Son of God suffered, bled and died on the cross of Calvary. He knew your dire need and deadly danger and, in wonderful love, allowed Himself to be crucified in order that He might bear all your sins in His own body on the tree. As He hung there, despised and rejected of men, all God's righteous wrath against sin fell on Him, in unparalleled force, until every claim of God against sin had been satisfied by His substitutionary sacrifice on behalf of sinners. Mark the loud and triumphant cry of the Savior ere He bowed His head in death and dismissed His spirit: "It is finished!" What was finished? All the work necessary for the salvation of every sinner who will trust in His finished work of redemption and receive Him as Savior and Lord. ~ Alfred P. Gibbs - "Three Questions"


Dear reader, aside from Jesus there is no hope for you! Without the hope of a Savior we may all just as well commit suicide! But we who are resting in our Salvation hope you will hear our cries in the darkness before it is too late! "Do thyself no harm!" Just repent from your self-sufficiency and rest... Jesus has finished all the work that may be done! There is nothing left for you to do. Believe what He says and "thou shalt be saved"!

SICKNESS, PAIN & TRIALS: God's "Best Life Now" for you?

FOR FANS OF TODD BENTLEY & JOEL OSTEEN and others who believe God only wants health, wealth, and good times for His people.

From Charles H. Spurgeon's writing entitled "On My Back":

"Sickness in the believer is intended for the glory of God, and in part this design is answered during the trial. It is to be feared that the Lord gets but a small revenue of glory from some of us; we defraud the royal exchequer of many dues: much conscience-money might we all send into court on account of our long and heavy arrears of thankfulness. Sickness takes out a warrant against ingratitude, and surcharges us for our defalcations, by bringing our negligences to remembrance.

God gets many a song from his caged birds which might never be heard if they had strength to wanton on the wing. Psalms and hymns, like music on the water, sound sweetly from the deeps of suffering... Until the oyster is sick it yields no pearls... We make most progress in our voyage heavenward when the wind is rough: calms are more pleasant than profitable; better for comfort than for commerce; fairer in the present than in the retrospect. Affliction cuts the facets of the Lord's diamonds, and so they shine with a greater lustre to his honour. What the church owes to the file and the hammer no tongue can tell.

Would the church triumphant have been so glorious as it now is, if its members had been spared the great tribulation out of which they passed to their crowns? Would half the grace which now beautifies the church militant have been discernible at all, if severe trials had not developed it? Would the Lord have had honour among us if the chastening rod had been laid aside? For the world to see how a Christian can endure hardness, is a great glory to God. The great hospital of saintly suffering is a grand exposition in which the choice works of the Holy Spirit are exhibited to all who have eyes to see.

Oh! how foolish are we to fear and dread bodily suffering, when it hath no killing hand, but two hands full of blessings.
We fear our mercies and tremble at our soul-enrichments; we cry out against a friend as though he were an enemy, and chase away an angel as though he were a devil. If we could but see the words, "Not unto death,"(John 11:4)emblazoned upon the escutcheon of our afflictions, we should receive them with more willing mind.

DAVID WILKERSON: Sandwich "prophecy" story debunked as false.

See the editor's note at the top of the article HERE.

WorldNet Daily contributor Janet Porter caused a tidal wave of activity on the "prophecy front" which has ended in disaster. At the end of her March 10th article calling believers to "Heed Wilkerson's Warning" she said "So, when the guy who made the 2,000 sandwiches on Sept. 10 warns us: "AN EARTH-SHATTERING CALAMITY IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN," I think we would do well to heed it."

Well Janet,... are you still going to heed Wilkerson's words now that the story of the "true prophecy" has been debunked? If you try hard you can likely find SOMETHING Wilkerson has said that has come true.

Like John Piper said, "Stick with the Bible... and your credibility will never fail".
