This applies to all that we do that God says not to do. May our hearts hurt when we hurt our Beloved’s heart, amen
Have you ever heard anyone make this statement, or have made it yourself?
“You won’t go to Hell for doing it.”
Too many Christians feel as though as long as they are paying their tithes and going to church regularly that, ‘they’re good’.
Sometimes times there will be an issue or behavior that is questionable or vague, or maybe not even addressed directly in the bible. Many times there will be an issue or behavior that we really enjoy, but there is reason to believe it might be displeasing to God. Then there are issues that are addressed, but many people either don’t make the connection, or don’t care about how those issues relate to us today.
There are many Christians who don’t only define themselves as children of God, they also define themselves by ‘their’ zodiac sign.
How does God feel about someone asking, “What’s your sign?”

For many Christians, this is their “foundation of truth.” It was for me. I remember C. Peter Wagner, “Discover Your Spiritual Gifts,” and IHOP (International House of Prayer).
“For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first…”
I have never openly said the words “I was in a cult” before now. But the more time passes, the more glaringly obvious it becomes that it is indeed an accurate statement.
Whether or not the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR for short) can officially be classified as a cult, is still an open question. Many will answer with a resounding yes, while some prefer to use the term ‘cult-like’. It certainly is difficult to define or compartmentalize, and different from other cults in the sense that it is an extremely broad movement, spanning across the boundaries of any specific church, group or denomination. Personally, I like to think of it as a ‘mega cult’ or an ‘out-of-control cult’.
Whichever way you want to look at it, it cannot be denied that all the characteristics of a cult are there…

This video is coming from a Messianic Jew ( I don’t like this term-it rebuilds the wall that Jesus removed and sounds elitist to me) and is very informative from an ex-pagan’s perspective.
In this recording we interview former pagan witch, Ezekiel Taylor about what its like to be a pagan at Christmas time. From Christmas trees to virgin births, virtually every tradition Christians celebrate has demonic ties to pagan sun god worship. Many of us are practicing witchcraft and demonic rites in our own household. Please take the time to listen to this and warn your friends and family.
Once the space photos of a spherical earth are shot down, the vast majority of people usually have one of two responses. The most common response is to dismiss the person asking the questions as a crank or fool, because “everyone knows that the earth is round.” The other response is to pay more attention to the “flat-earthers,” looking for errors in their facts or logic. However, rarely having the knowledge readily at hand to refute the case for a flat earth, most people who take this approach soon look for help. That search for help usually is on the Internet, whereupon they quickly find a slew of websites and videos promoting the flat earth, but precious little, if any, refuting it. Some people emerge a few hours later, their egos bruised and their intelligence a bit insulted, because they still think that the flat earth is nonsense but are frustrated that they can’t seem to answer many of the arguments they’ve just encountered. Still others never emerge from this rabbit hole and end up thinking that maybe the conspiracy theories that they have encountered along the way may be right—perhaps for a long time we’ve all been fed a whopping lie about the true shape of the earth.

I know that there are gullible Christians believing the flat earth conspiracy theories so I wanted to post a refutation of it here. Hard to believe that proven science is being questioned all because people don’t trust NASA or whoever else wants to say the earth is spherical. Bad as it is, its worse when they take scriptures to prove the earth is flat. They are taking idioms, like “the four corners of the earth” literally. ~sigh~ I’m no brainiac to answer this one in my own words but I will let Answers in Genesis do it as it is their field of expertise. Its just so sad to hear that Christians actually believe this conspiracy theory! Thankfully, it has no bearing on salvation but aren’t we to be the children of truth?
Undoubtedly, the recent surge of interest in the flat earth among Christians has been fueled by the (false) belief that the Bible teaches that the earth is flat. Those who have enlisted in the flat-earth movement of late apparently are ignorant of the fact that those who promoted the conflict thesis made the same arguments to discredit the Bible. This could be ironic, or perhaps it is not. It is possible that certain people promoting the flat-earth today are doing so to discredit the Bible and Christianity all over again. If so, then Christians who have been misled into believing that the earth is flat have foolishly fallen into the trap. Let us examine the Scriptures to see what they say. We shall find that promoters of the flat earth do not handle them any better than they handle history.
Given the clear record of history, why is it so commonly believed today that most people, and especially the church, thought that the earth was flat?
The Flammarion engraving is a very famous depiction of the domed vault over the flat earth. Most people think that this is a medieval piece of artwork, but it dates from the 1880s. One is hard-pressed to find any medieval depictions of the supposed vaulted dome/flat earth cosmology of the Bible, because this was not believed in the Middle Ages. The influence of the Flammarion engraving as used by promoters of the conflict thesis cannot be overestimated. This one depiction appears to have done more than anything else to promote the false notion that medieval cosmology was a domed vault over a flat earth…
