Paul Flynn addresses the false doctrine of Arminianism at the beginning of the show. He makes good points that those who believe that man’s will is the reason for his salvation will fall prey to false doctrines.
Darlene Zschech of Hillsong music joined to worship with Pope Francis. What does this say of her stance on Biblical truth? What is the current state of the church today? Kevin DeYoung’s article ’40 Questions for Christians Now Waving Rainbow Flags’ is also looked at in this week’s show, along with some professing Christian responses and objections to the article.
hattip: Elizabeth from I Once Was Lost (don’t mean to “steal” this from you, sister, but you deleted your post with this video!)
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.
WORSHIP IS TRULY in the melting pot. A new style of praise has swept into evangelical life, shaking to the foundations traditional concepts and attitudes. The style of worship followed throughout the entire history of Bible-believing churches has been shunted on to the sidelines — and why not? Young friends are asking — ‘What’s the matter with contemporary music groups? Isn’t there every kind of instrument, including percussion, in the Psalms? Didn’t they dance in worship in Bible times? Isn’t God the same yesterday, today and for ever? Why should we be tied to gloomy Victorian culture in our praise to God?’…continue to read intro here.

This is an old article but the lesson can apply to a Christian’s celebration of X Mass and Easter. It is not a small thing nor is it a matter of Christian liberty but, rather, a matter of obedience. Please take God seriously!
Back before I was saved, I decided I was going to read the Bible from start to finish. My husband at the time had a Bible, but he hadn’t read much of it. I picked it up one day and started at Genesis. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, half way through Numbers. I was done. I didn’t understand any of it and I thought it was a stupid book. There were things in Leviticus, in particular, that set me off. I didn’t know why they called it Leviticus, but I thought they should have named it Ridiculous. It all seemed downright silly to me. Why would God care if the people wore one kind of fabric with another kind of fabric? In Leviticus 19:19, it says, “You shall not let your livestock breed with another kind. You shall not sow your field with mixed seed. Nor shall a garment of mixed linen and wool come upon you.”
Years ago, I didn’t understand. Today, it makes complete sense. In this law, God was telling His people that they were to be set apart from the surrounding pagan nations. God is holy; He is pure. It was God’s desire that His people understand His holiness and purity. Therefore, in all that the people would do, the LORD would have them be reminded of His holiness and purity. From their livestock, to their fields, to their clothing, God was continually reminding them not to mix the holy with the unholy, the pure with the impure. As a people, they were not to mix with the surrounding pagan nations and in their lives before a holy God, they were to remember God’s holiness in all that they did.
