Dinesh D’Souza on Obama and His New Movie “Death of a Nation”

This movie will be released August third.  It shows the incessant lies of the Democratic Party and how it is completely unhinged.  They want to destroy our freedoms, open our borders, take away the right to bear arms, and allow illegal immigrants to run roughshod all over this nation.  They are anarchists and despise the popularity of President Donald Trump.  Pray for this nation without ceasing.  Pastor Steve  <><

Watch The Trailer

Synopsis
Not since 1860 have the Democrats so fanatically refused to accept the result of a free election. That year, their target was Lincoln. They smeared him. They went to war to defeat him. In the end, they assassinated him. Now the target of the Democrats is President Trump and his supporters. The Left calls them racists, white supremacists and fascists. These charges are used to justify driving Trump from office and discrediting the right “by any means necessary.” But which is the party of the slave plantation? Which is the party that invented white supremacy? Which is the party that praised fascist dictators and shaped their genocidal policies and was in turn praised by them? Moreover, which is the party of racism today? Is fascism now institutionally embodied on the right or on the left?  Through stunning historical recreations and a searching examination of fascism and white supremacy, Death of a Nation cuts through progressive big lies to expose hidden history and explosive truths.  Lincoln united his party and saved America from the Democrats for the first time. Can Trump and we come together and save America for the second time?

Dark Spiritual Days Lie Ahead

And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day:  for the sky is red and lowering.  O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?  Matthew 16:3

We like to watch the weather forecasts and plan our days accordingly.  But how many of us plan for the dark spiritual days that lie ahead?  We see the storm clouds gathering, and our Lord points out that it is time to think and prepare for that future, faithfully sharing our faith, rather than to worry about temporal things.  Let’s make sure that we put first things first!    -G. Frear

The Lord of all has shown His plan, Unto each faithful one, Who leaves behind worldly things, As soldiers for His Son.  -Author Unknown

Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) said in his typically sardonic way:  “Having spent considerable time with good people, I can understand why Jesus liked to be with the tax collectors and sinners.”  There is a “goodness” that is not good and a “righteousness” that is not right.

The Bible is replete with prophecies of a coming age of peace and prosperity.  It will be a time when war will be utterly unknown.  Not a single armament plant will be operating, not a soldier or sailor will be in uniform, no military camps will exist, and not one cent will be spent for armaments of war, not a single penny will be used for defense, much less for offensive warfare.  Can you imagine such an age, when all nations shall be at perfect peace, all the resources available for enjoyment, all industry engaged in the articles of a peaceful luxury.  ~  Dr. M.

James Sundquist Open Letter on Zondervan and Rick Warren Posted by Amos 3:7 | Apologetics, Apostasy, Book Reviews, Contemplative Spirituality

 

James Sundquist Open Letter on Zondervan and Rick Warren

Hi, I’m James Sundquist, founder and director of EAGLE MASTERWORKS PRODUCTIONS, has written and/or produced the words and music for several network commercials, one internationally released sound track for a film, and four nationally released recordings. James’s network commercials include: several Mattel Toy spots; Woodsy Owl Give A Hoot, (“Keep America Clean” Campaign Public Service Announcement, for the Department of Agriculture at Ogilvy & Mather Advertising); Stretch & Sew Fabrics; and Your Local Church Welcomes You, for the National Episcopal Foundation.

Zondervan False Report on Rick Warren
By James Sundquist
Dear Pastors, Staff Members, and Church Members of Southern Baptist Convention of Virginia,
As you no doubt already know, Rick Warren and his publisher Zondervan published on their Purpose Driven Life book cover and in their advertising that:
Purpose Driven Life is “the bestselling non-fiction hardback book in history”.
A similar statement was also published and posted by Southern Baptist
leader Jerry A. Johnson, President of National Religious Broadcasters, in Washington D.C.:
“Purpose Driven Life has sold more than 32 million copies, been translated into 85 languages, was the subject of a major motion picture, and is the best- selling hardback book in American history, according to Publishers Weekly.”NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson Source NRB
Circulation of a False Report
Jerry A. Johnson may very well now be a member or attendee of one of your churches in Virginia. He knows about this, but to date and to my knowledge, he has not warned anyone or sent out an NRB Alert to his members.
So, in light this Scripture:
“You shall not circulate a false report.” Exodus 23:1
I entreat you to read this investigation to establish and verify whether or not this claim can be substantiated. I have attached for you the Bestselling Books in History Ranking Chart.
Note where Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life ranks, in relationship to #1:
The above claim by Rick Warren and Zondervan was attributed to Publishers Weekly.
So let’s see what the President of Publishers Weekly said about this claim:
“I’ve checked our site which includes all of our content from about 1995. Also touched base with our religion editors and there is no finding of a quote like that… We don’t generally use the term hardback.” September 30, 2013 11:33:08 PM EDT George W. Slowik, President of Publishers Weekly
I also invite you to read a documentary on Warren’s SHAPE Personality Profiling (Step 3 or 301 Discovery Class), and Days 29-31 in Warren’s Purpose Driven Life book, based on Carl Jung, that I wrote which was published in
two Conservative Christian Theological Journals: Personality Profiling Jung

Silence is Not Golden
To avoid the temptation to remain silent in the face of iniquity, I invite you to sound the alarm to your fellow SBCV Members, in obedience to the Apostle Paul’s command for all Christians:
I have learned from a long-time SBC Pastor that even Christians that are concerned about Rick Warren’s teachings and programs are afraid to oppose or expose him. So I invite you to read this article why remaining SILENCE IS NOT GOLDEN: Spiritual Formation Movement (Scroll down about half way until you see my name).
And Spiritual Euthanasia:
I also invite you to read my two books on Rick Warren, published by Southwest Radio Church Ministries, now free online at:
Who’s Driving the Purpose Driven Church? Here
and
Rick Warren’s Global Peace Plan vs. Scripture
“Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11 (NIV Zondervan’s own Bible Translation).
And here is the video documentary I produced with Richard Bennett, former
Roman Catholic priest exposing Warren entitled:
“Experiencing God through Deceitful Mysticism by Richard Bennett”: On YouTube
Finally, in a world of FAKE NEWS, this should not even be named in the Church. So in what could be the greatest irony is that Rick Warren tells “FAKE Christians to find another church.” Source: Christianity Today
Conclusions
Therefore, I exhort you that if Rick Warren is your pastor, or you are a member of a Purpose Driven Church, then it is you that better find another church that does not preach another gospel! “Come out from among them and be ye separate.” And if you are truly a fake Christian why would Rick Warren send you off to another church to poison its members?
So if Rick Warren really has reached 197 nations with his Global Peace Plan, then he and his publisher Zondervan could have currently achieved the dubious honor of having spread more fake news than any Christian author and publisher in modern history. So the question remains, who is really the Fake Christian pastor/author that we should flee? And who is the real Fake Christian Publisher we should reject?
“Fake news” by Zondervan and Warren should be an oxymoron because we champion TRUTH, because Jesus Christ is the Way the TRUTH and the Life, it separates us from all other religions.
Kindest regards in Christ,

California Bill Will Outlaw Churches Helping People Out Of LGBT Lifestyle

News Image

Fallen man now feels he knows how to help people, rather than submitting to the Lord and His Word.  When the secular government, which has already drifted away from God, becomes the conscience for a nation, we are in deep trouble.  This is an obvious case whereby the Christian must “obey God and not man.”   Acts 5:29 King James Version (KJV)  “and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”     Blessings, Pastor Steve   <><

ARTICLE
California Bill Will Outlaw Churches Helping People Out Of LGBT Lifestyle

The state of California is close to passing a law that would use consumer protection regulations to control the information presented by churches under the guise of protecting Californians from fraud.

Bill AB 2943, which has passed several rounds of committee votes and amendments as well as the assembly and will be voted on by the state senate on June 25th, would specifically ban any religious organization from providing assistance to those struggling with gender identity.

The law cites the American Psychiatric Association, as well as several other organizations, to claim that there is no evidence that adults can change their gender orientation and that attempts to do so may be harmful. The law argues that since there is no evidence that the services offered by the church are effective, then charging individuals for such therapy amounts to fraud.

In doing so, they have plunged the state deeply into issues of sexuality, individual freedom to choose and religious liberty. The law would ban anyone from offering sexual orientation change services or the materials, print or otherwise, in conjunction with such services.

While this is not likely to result in the banning of Bibles, a strict reading of the law would allow for such a ban the moment one is used to counsel someone on God’s plan for sexual morality. Luis Javier Ruiz, a survivor of the 2016 massacre at The Pulse, a gay night club in Orlando, has joined the voices speaking out against this law.

Following the tragedy, Ruiz left behind a life of homosexual hedonism with the help of God’s Word, but he is worried that others will be prevented from getting the same help.

“If they pass that bill in California, it will take away the rights of counselors, pastors and people that want to give you guidance on coming out of homosexuality.” he told The Christian Post. “I came to Christ through the Word of God. I came to Christ over Godly counsel, pastors, people prayed me through,” and he fears that this law will prevent others from getting the same help he did.

The president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, Reverend Dr. Samuel Rodríguez, has spoken out on the use of this bill to discriminate against Christians and the LGBT community in California. The reverend didn’t mince words when he said that “California’s AB-2943 is the most egregious, tone-deaf, and discriminatory example of anti-religious legislation that I have witnessed in all my years of ministry. I am deeply troubled that this profoundly flawed bill has already passed the California Assembly and now sits with the Senate.”

Several young adult conferences have already been canceled in California, such as those held by Summit Ministries, out of fear for how they may be attacked legally for teaching the Bible, and ministries across the state are now afraid that sermons from the pulpit may open them up to lawsuits, discrimination and smear campaigns.

The idea that if the state of California isn’t convinced your beliefs are both true and effective, it can prosecute you, flies in the face of the core concepts of religious liberty as well as freedom of expression and association. Jim Domen, now a Christian pastor who was saved by the Word of God from a lifestyle of spiraling depression and social alienation caused by his struggles with the homosexual life-style, has also called out the legislature for “trying to silence the power of Jesus Christ.”

Domen sees the bill as the government “controlling how we identify sexually,” and far from protecting the rights of the LGBT community is instead cutting off their right to choose; to decide to seek the help of the Church and of God.

These are men and women who have experienced the misery and confusion surrounding issues of sexual identity and come to the other side with the help of the Church and of God and they know firsthand the harm this bill will do to Californians. Shouldn’t we listen to those who have benefited from the efforts of dedicated pastors and Christian counselors and allow individuals to make their own decisions?

Other more libertarian voices, such as Rob Dreher who writes for The American Conservative, warns of the chilling effect Bill 2943 will have on freedoms of thought when he writes, “I would be appalled if a pro-LGBT organization decided to cancel a conference in my conservative state because they legitimately feared that local prosecutors would charge them over what they intended to say at the conference. That’s not America, or at least not the kind of America I want to live in.”

Leave it to the government of California to legislate what religious and sexual beliefs are valid and which are forbidden. In support of the freedom to follow their own beliefs, a series of demonstrations called Freedom Marches is being organized as a gathering together of those who have put aside homosexual and transgender lifestyles.

Luis Javier Ruiz was in attendance in Washington D.C. near the Washington monument at the first march and began by asking those in the LGBT lifestyle to come back, come back to the church and back to God through repentance of a lifestyle that is not God’s best for them.

The Sword Of The Lord ~ Dr. Shelton Smith, Editor ~ May 4, 2018

Judges 7:20 King James Version (KJV)
And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried, The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon.

Amen Corner

When Jeremiah decided not to make mention anymore of the Lord nor to speak in His name, he found a seething volcano within him, a fire shut up in his bones!  When he ceased to testify for the Lord, it was like a stream damned up within him that must burst forth.  Jeremiah was not only in the ministry; the ministry was in him!  He was like that man who had the billy goat by the horns and was crying out, “Someone come and help me turn this animal loose!”  -John R. Rice

It is better to be a good housewife or nurse or domestic servant than to be a powerless preacher or a graceless leader.  -Charles Spurgeon

You had better not pray to be conformed to the image of God’s Son unless you mean business!  It may be anything but the delightful experience you had in mind.  God uses strange ways to make us more like Jesus.  -Vance Havner

From the day of the Declaration [of Independence]…[t]hey [the American people] were bound by the laws of God, which they all, and by the laws of the Gospel, which they nearly all, acknowledge as the rule of their conduct.  -John Quincy Adams

It is one thing to trust Jesus Christ as Saviour and quite another to surrender one’s life to the Lord.  There is such a thing as the dedicated Christian life.  And there are carnal Christians (I Cor. 3) who have never yielded their lives to Christ.  The yielding of one’s life or making Jesus Lord of one’s life is not a requirement for salvation.  That is Lordship salvation and a perversion of the Gospel.  -Curtis Hutson

It appears that too many Christians want to enjoy the thrill of feeling right but are not willing to endure the inconvenience of being right.  -A.W. Tozer

It is not the possession of extraordinary gifts that makes extraordinary usefulness but the dedication of what we have to the service of God.  -Frederick William Robertson

May you who are already saved meditate upon [Hell] in its practical, personal bearings until your heart is so burdened by the awful peril of the wicked that you will rush out to spend the last dollar, if need be, and the last ounce of strength in saving those imperiled men from the certain, awful Hell of conscious agony and shame to which they are fast hurrying.

People don’t miss church because they live too far from the building but because they live too far from God.

One way in which a Christian shows what he is, is by what he does with what he has.

 

 

The Comeback of ‘Under God’ ~ The American Renewal Project

 


 

‌ ‌ ‌

In 2015, the American Renewal Project hosted pastors and pews events preparing for the first four presidential primaries in 2016: Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada. Participants included Mike Huckabee, LA Governor Bobby Jindal, TX Governor Rick Perry, TX Senator Ted Cruz, KY Senator Rand Paul, and FL Senator Marco Rubio.

On May 3, 2016, Donald J. Trump clinched the Republican nomination with his victory in the Indiana primary. The race to become the next president was down to Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald J. Trump.

Some Evangelical leaders got caught up in the ‘Never Trump’ movement. Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), declared in a Washington Post opinion piece of October 9, 2016, that “If Donald Trump has done anything, he has snuffed out the Religious Right.” The article seemed an effort to suppress Evangelical turnout on Election Day.  [Russell Moore is a wolf in sheepskin and he is bad for the SBC.  He promoted “Crooked Hillary” in 2016.  Why would anyone be surprised that he desires to enable LGBTQ?  Note Trump’s accomplishments below.  Moore totally lacked discernment of what Trump would do.  Pastor Steve  <><] 

On May 10, 2016, we examined the ‘Never Trump’ movement in an editorial addressed to 100,000 American Renewal Project pastors:

“What and how will Mr. Trump do? I don’t have a clue.

“But with Hillary we do know. The progressives that she will stack on the Supreme Court alone will set back America for a century. Americans may well lose 1) their Second Amendment right to ‘keep and bear Arms’ and 2) their religious liberty (Kim Davis was just the warm-up act). Codifying transgender bathrooms rights will only be the beginning of nine unelected and unaccountable Justices imposing a godless agenda, tearing America apart brick-by-brick.” (read full story here: https://bit.ly/2wFciXj )

Fast-forwarding now to June 2018, a list of President Trump’s victories includes:
• Defending religious liberty.
• Standing up for the unborn.
• Defunding Planned Parenthood.
• Appointing conservative jurists to the Supreme Court and federal appeals courts.
• Reinstating the Mexico City Policy [policy blocking U.S. federal funding for non-governmental organizations that provide abortion counselling or referrals, advocate to decriminalize abortion or expand abortion services].
• Rescinding the Johnson Amendment by Executive Order.
• Commitment to sign the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.
• Opening the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. “Today, we finally acknowledge the obvious: that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital,” Trump said. Many promised for nearly three decades, only Donald Trump kept his word.

A good explanation for the Trump phenomenon, aside from the Left’s narrative, would be “God helps those who cannot help themselves.”

Last week we discussed how Cardinal Karol Wojtyla – who later became Pope John Paul II – and Father Frank Blachnicki established a youth ministry in Poland to renew the Polish church. They did this through spiritual mobilization in the fight against communism. Their Oasis movement was created to counter Soviet ‘propagandizement’ of Polish youth by USSR Young Pioneer camps. An estimated ten million children had passed through 40,000 pioneer camps across the USSR during the 1960s and 1970s. (1) This was ‘evangelization’ and indoctrination by a pagan, communistic godless religion. Contrast this to the Oasis alumni, who took vows to live ethical lifestyles of spiritual dissent in the face of a hostile communistic system.

It is evidently high time for an ‘ Oasis movement ’ for America’s youth. We need a movement that will expel pagan Secularism, presently entrenched as gospel, from public education and America’s cultural mountains of influence. This would be a miracle of similar magnitude to Joshua commanding the sun to stand still.

In any case, let’s be clear: neither Wall Street, politicians, government, nor public education is going to save America. “They one and all fail, utterly fail, to meet the deep need of the soul. One and all they are unable to put away sin. And, yet, sad to say, they one and all supplant the Christ of God – He is not wanted; He passes by unnoticed.” (2)

The phrase “passes by unnoticed” leads us to Proverbs 8:10: “Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.” If riches are esteemed and desired over Wisdom, she quietly withdraws, without a commotion. Even a cursory glance at our culture will show that God has withdrawn His hand from secularized, public education. Wisdom’s absence is unmistakable.

As long as pagan Secularism controls America’s cultural mountains of influence – public education, academia, newsrooms, sports, the courts, big business, Hollywood, medicine – we are going downhill as a nation. Each passing day it becomes clearer that Christians have neglected their duty over the last three-quarters of a century. Christians have treated the conflict between the pagan religion of Secularism and the Biblical God Jehovah casually, as just another passing fancy. Yet, on the contrary, this is war.

We Christians must now make the fullest possible use of all means at our disposal to dislodge Secularism from the public square and the culture if America is to survive. This spiritual war calls for persistent vigilance together with action.

Currently, Donald Trump looks to be our best ally. God has raised a Samson “willing to do what God’s people are not.” ( goo.gl/2p6TXE)

Christians must take their civic government skills to the next level. A great tutor for developing such skills is former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Newt’s new book is titled Trump’s America. ( goo.gl/YrH8pM)

In Chapter 3 – The Comeback of ‘Under God’ – it reads: “Essentially, the anti-Trump coalition has twisted freedom of religion into freedom from religion by casting faith as a source of oppression that should be removed from public life. … This is why freedom of religion is an essential pillar of America – and a key to the American comeback.”

Gideons and Rahabs are beginning to stand.
