The New Age and the Church


, , , , , ,

I read an article from a Christian News site that popped into my Facebook feed. The headline reads as follows:

“‘Destiny Readings’? ‘Expert Seers’?: Australian Group ‘Christalignment’ Drawing Concerns Over New Age Practices in the Name of God.'”

The article tells the story of a group in Australia that calls itself ‘Christalignment.’ It offers “destiny readings” by “expert seers” along with dream interpretation and something called energy impartation. All of this in the name of God and evangelism. You can read article here.

I’m seeing more and more stories like this popping up around the world. Whether it’s ‘psychics for Jesus’ or churches embracing the homosexual agenda, it’s all very disturbing.

We are getting away from the original message that runs as a theme throughout the Gospels: repent.

It’s that simple.

I mean, what more can you say about all of this except that many of the churches have gone soft. As I’ve stated in my previous blogs, they are more interested in keeping the seats filled rather than telling people they need to repent. Telling a good person who isn’t saved that they are great just the way they are won’t get them saved.

If you aren’t saved, I would encourage you to get on your knees and repent of your sins and follow Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Then find a good Bible believing church. If you can’t find one in your, there are a number of good preachers you can find online. One of my favorites is Pastor Charles Lawson of Temple Baptist Church in Knoxville, Tennessee.

I encourage you to do it now because Christ could return at any moment.

God Bless!


Alien Intrusion: What I Learned


, , , ,

In my last blog, I told you that I was going to see the documentary film ‘Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception.’

I finally saw the movie this past Thursday night and it’s taken some time for me to process exactly what I saw.

What I did see has changed my view of what, exactly, is out there.

But more on that later.

I won’t provide a film critics review of the documentary, suffice to say that it was very well done and presented with a logical progression of the facts and evidence.

The film begins with a brief history of our fascination with UFOs and aliens. It shows the mass hysteria and panic that ensued during Orson Welles October 30, 1938 broadcast of H.G. Wells ‘War of the Worlds.’ The actual panic that it created is still undecided but the dramatization’s impact was definitely felt.

The journey continues through the years, with various UFO sightings, the most famous being that of the Roswell incident in 1947.

We then move into the heart of the film where the scientific aspects of space travel are explored.

When I first became fascinated with the idea of aliens coming to this planet, the laws of physics never entered my mind. They have now.

The consensus among the scientists in this documentary is that it is nearly impossible to travel at the speed of light or greater. Here are just a few of the things I learned:

1) In order to accelerate to the speed of light, you would need to have the amount of energy equivalent to four atomic bombs (roughly the size of those detonated over Hiroshima). To slow down from the speed of light, you would need the same energy equivalent. Once you’ve reached your destination, you would need to use the same amount of energy all over again.

In addition, as you approach the speed of light, the mass of your ship would increase almost exponentially. This will also affect the amount of energy needed to approach light speed.

2) According to the documentary, there are approximately one hundred thousand particles of matter per one kilometer or space. Let’s face it folks: space isn’t really empty.

These aliens would need to come up with some kind of deflector screen to keep these particles from completely destroying their ship. This screen would also add to the energy consumption of the vehicle.

3) One of the last things I’ll mention is inertia. You know that ‘pinned back into your seat’ feeling you get when you slam the accelerator of your car? Imagine that times a really large number with lots of zeros on the end. You would end up being a red stain on the seat. Now an inertial dampener would need to be used to keep that from happening. And…you guessed it…more energy consumption.

When you think about it, ‘Star Trek’ isn’t too far off from what would be needed for interstellar travel: propulsion systems, guidance systems, life support, defense (you never know…), etc. All of these adding to overall energy consumption.

There was so much information in this film that I can’t fit it all here without making this blog too long of a read. Let me just recommend getting the DVD when it comes out.

My final thoughts? Considering everything I have read and seen, I believe that these craft are not interstellar but inter-dimensional. They have the ability to open up doors into other dimensions and freely pass between them. Scientists have always known that there are a number of dimensions out there (up to 10) so this is completely feasible. Violating the laws of physics is not.

As for the so-called ‘alien beings?’ I believe them to be demons masquerading as aliens. Looking like aliens gives them a more familiar look in that many will think they are aliens from outer space rather than demonic forces at work (for reference, read Ephesians 6:12)

For more information, please go to Alien Intrusion for more information.

Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception


, , ,

I’ve always had a fascination with UFO’s.

This fascination goes back to a time before I was saved. I would watch every program I could that had anything to do with aliens and UFOs and the possibility of life on other planets. I couldn’t get enough of it.

I remember first getting interested in the UFO phenomenon back in my early teens. I was going through the section of the public library no one really bothered to go into. You know the one I’m talking about. It had books about UFOs, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and other sordid creatures and crafts.

I don’t remember the title but I remember picking up a book that had a UFO on the cover. That’s was my first encounter with the UFO phenomenon. I couldn’t help but think about the possibilities.

Could there actually be aliens on other planets who could come to visit Earth and see what we’re all about? How would they get here? How far away are they? Would they be traveling at faster-than-light speeds?

Then Star Trek came along and I thought ‘Of course aliens can visit us if they’re more technologically advanced than we are!’ I didn’t think, for a minute, that the laws of physics would come into play.

Did I mention ‘Ancient Aliens?’ Well, that’s a whole other blog topic that I’ll save for later. 🙂

But my perception of what these crafts are could be changed by a film I’m going to see. It’s called ‘Alien Intrusion’ and it opens in theaters on Thursday, January 11 at 7 PM on the East Coast. You can find more information about it here:

Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a Deception

The makers of this film will explain the UFO phenomenon from both scientific and biblical perspectives. They say that they will be able to show that these crafts were are seeing are not coming from another galaxy but from another dimension.

I’m looking forward to this movie and hope to be able to write a follow-up to this blog with a review and what I thought of this presentation.

God Bless!

A Christmas Message


, , , , ,

A single star, the brightest one in the sky, marked the way to the birthplace of a newborn king. 

The shepherds marveled at the sight. Having kept watch over their sheep at night, they were familiar with every star in the sky. This one, however, was different. It didn’t move as the others did. In fact, it didn’t move at all. It just stood there, night after night, as if to say ‘Come and see!’

This star was something they’ve never seen before; an anomaly in an otherwise normal sky. The shepherds were naturally afraid. Until an angel appeared to them while they were in their fields. 

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this Fay in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:10-11)

Christmas is a special time of year for many of us. We gather together with family and friends. We exchange gifts, we eat, and we enjoy the time spent in each other’s company. 

But let’s not forget the true meaning of this season. Jesus may not have been born on December 25th but I can’t think of a better time to appreciate and honor what a loving God did for us: the birth of a Son who would come to save mankind. 

The Pauline Epistles – The Book of Romans


, , , ,

Of all of Paul’s New Testament writings, I believe is letter to the church in Rome ranks as his best work.

I’ve read the New Testament a couple of times in my life but no other book of the Bible holds the key to salvation and grace than Paul’s letter to the Romans. I believe (as others have also commented) that is the reason that this book is near the beginning of the New Testament writings. It is a powerful statement about God’s grace for us and our salvation through Jesus Christ.

I am only going to give a brief summary of my thoughts about this letter. I will give some detail concerning the beginning of this letter and then summarize the remaining chapters.

Paul was in Corinth at the time of this writing. Because he was unable to leave Corinth, he decided to write a letter to the church in Rome detailing exactly what he would have said to them had he been able to make the trip.

The letter begins with Paul declaring that he is a servant of Jesus Christ, separated unto the gospel of God. He then states that:

Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead; by whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all  nations, for his name:” (Romans 1:3-5 KJV).

This is a key point that Paul makes. He has confirmed what the Gospels have also stated: that Jesus Christ is both man and the Son of God.

He then goes on to say that the gospel of Christ “…is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” (Romans 1:16 KJV)

That statement, to me, sums up everything that the gospel message is about: believing on the gospel and believing in Jesus as the Messiah is the key to salvation.

Paul then provides some historical background of the Israelites (the closing verses of Romans 1). He explains how, after sin entered the world, man gave himself up to his own desires. They turned from God and His righteousness and, instead, embraced their own.

He then details how we are all sinners and that the only path to salvation is not through ourselves but through the saving work of the cross.

In the remaining chapters, Paul details how unrighteous all of us are and that “all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:24 KJV).

We are commanded to live as righteous a life as possible. We will fall short each and every day but it’s God’s grace that gives us the opportunity to get back up and try again.

In my next post, we will look at his letter to the Corinthians.

Thank you for reading and God bless!

The Pauline Epistles


, , ,

Since becoming a Christian a few years ago, I’ve read through the entire Bible twice.

While you’re reading, the Holy Spirit will give you nuggets of insight that will sometimes make me go ‘Oh wow!’ The epistles written by Paul was one of those nuggets.

There are twenty-seven books in the New Testament. Of those, thirteen are written by Paul. That’s nearly half of the New Testament!

I will say, though, that there is some doubt as to the exact authorship of some of these books but we can confirm that at least seven of them were authored by Paul. For now, we will assume that he authored all thirteen (I did check a few sources, including Wikipedia and

You might wonder how Paul could have so much to say that would fill thirteen books of the Bible but he did. Seven of these are written to the seven Churches they include Romans, First and Second Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and First and Second Thessalonians.

Each of these letters to the seven churches had a specific purpose in mind. There were things happening in these churches that disturbed him and he needed to emphasize that Jesus was the cornerstone of everything they should believe and everything they should be teaching.

What I hope to do over the coming days and weeks is to have separate posts on each of these letters to the seven churches and how they tie into what we are seeing today in the church and in society overall, taken from a biblical worldview.

I hope you look forward to reading them as much as I’m looking forward to writing them!

God Bless!

Christians and Halloween – To Celebrate or Not to Celebrate?


, , , , ,

Halloween is right around the corner and I thought about republishing a post I did last year about this popular holiday but I decided to take a different approach to this.

I recently read a story online (and for the life of me I can’t remember where) where a pastor was extolling the virtues of participating in Halloween and that all Christians should do it. He took the approach that this is a good time for us to engage with others and to preach the gospel to them. Or give out candy with Bible verses on them or put tracts in the kid’s bags with the candy.

As Christians, should we participate in this holiday event? I personally don’t celebrate and here’s why:

Last year I wrote a blog about the origins of Halloween. You can read that here.

We are instructed to be in the world but not of the world. Does this mean we shouldn’t participate in certain holiday traditions because they are worldly celebrations?

I’ve struggled with this very same question. Christmas and Halloween both have pagan roots but Halloween is overtly pagan. I do realize that Jesus was not born on December 25th but in my house, we take this time and season to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ. Halloween is a whole other ball of wax.

There is nothing in Halloween that could be considered Christian. It is strictly a pagan holiday and I detailed some of this in my earlier post. We are to stay away from anything that celebrates evil. Paul wrote about this in the book of Ephesians:

Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord; walk as children of the light; (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;). And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Ephesians 5:7-9,11

The pastor in the above mentioned story said that some are misinterpreting scripture. There’s no mistaking Paul’s intent when he wrote this. It’s pretty clear to me and it should be pretty clear to anyone with discernment.

Halloween is also one of the holiest nights on the pagan calendar. The hardcore Satanists will cast spells, summon demons, and even perform human sacrifices.

If you do decide to allow your children to go house to house on Halloween, please keep a close eye on them and don’t let them out of your sight.

God Bless!

Blogger’s Block


, ,

Have you ever gotten into one of those ruts where you have no idea what to write about?

I’m going through that right now.

Part of the problem could be that I only got about five and a half hours sleep last night. It could also be that I’m at work trying to think of something to write.

Either way, I’m suffering from a huge bout of blogger’s block.

I would call it writer’s block but I don’t consider myself to be a writer. There are a number of bloggers that I follow here who I consider to be writers more than I. People like Jules Verne or Shakespeare (or was it Sir Francis Bacon?) are writers; I put words down and hope that they make sense when I get to the end. So far, so good.

I look at the headlines for inspiration. I tend to look at the Christian websites because the church is a mess right now and there are pastors out there who are not helping the cause. Satan is walking through the doorway and some pastors are holding the doors open for them.

But I digress.

I try to blog about a wide range of topics but, lately, it’s been tough to come up with something that I think would be of interest, for both myself and the reader. But I sit here with an empty head and a silent keyboard.

So, that’s why I’m writing this blog. It’s a blog about nothing (it’s almost like a ‘Seinfeld’ episode, right?!). Does it make sense to write about nothing just to write? Or is it better to leave it go until I come up with a good topic?

Well, the blog is written and I’m about to hit the ‘Publish’ button so I’ll let everyone who reads this decide.

Let me know if you’ve ever gone through this so I don’t feel so alone. 🙂

God Bless!

More Than A Gun

This post (and her blog) are definitely worth reading!


My heart is shattered today at the news of the pure evil demonstrated last night in Las Vegas.

My prayers and deepest sympathies are with our hurting nation right now, and especially the victims and their loved ones.


I’ve been hard pressed to peel myself away from the news to write this post.

The level of atrocity and horror that is belching across our television airwaves today is enough to make you want to build a bunker and not come out until the second coming.

There was one thing I was not expecting today though: and that’s what I found when I scanned social media today.

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 6.31.14 PM.png

Honestly, I have been so sickened at the response by much of the public – and much of my Facebook newsfeed.

Instead of calls for prayer and compassion for the victims of the shooting, there is outcry for gun control reform.

Instead of numbers…

Transgender Jesus and Satan’s Dark Deception


, , , , , ,

I was a bit hesitant to write this post.

I wanted to tackle the issue head-on but not seem insensitive to others.

But I realize that I’m at that age where political correctness is not my thing and that truth is truth. Especially when it comes to proclaiming the Gospel.

Which brings me to the article that I will link to at the bottom of my post.

Essentially, the author is claiming that Jesus was the first transgender man.

Yep, that’s right. Jesus was the first transgender man.

I’ll stop while you catch your breath.

What concerns me the most is that the author of the article claims to be a Christian. Here is her explanation as to why she believes Jesus was transgender:

“The worst offenders are the Christian’s who claim to take the Bible literally. Of course they don’t actually do that; they impose their own filters on stories and phrases to fit their particular ideology. If they really did as they claim to do, they would quickly see that Jesus must be, by their own exegetical rules, the first transgender male.”

She goes on to say that Eve was the first human clone because she was created from one of Adam’s ribs. Adam (being male) has an X and a Y chromosome. She believes that, since Eve would also have this same chromosomal pairing, God would need to change her into a woman. At this point, she is making assumptions. This is, of course, a false assumption as Scripture points out:

With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” (Mark 10:27)

With God, all things are possible. God knows all. He created man; He created him with all the parts and pieces he would need. He knew what they would need physically, mentally, and genetically. Don’t you think He would know that Eve would need to have two X chromosomes?

The author then goes on to say the following about the birth of Jesus:

“Then along comes Jesus and the whole pattern is both repeated and reversed. The first couple’s refusal to cooperate is turned around by Mary’s yes, and the second act of cloning occurs. The Holy Spirit comes upon the second Eve, and the child takes flesh from her and is born. Born of her flesh. Born with XX chromosome pairing. Born genetically female, and yet trans-formed into man.”

An amateur understanding of basic biology will tell you that only one chromosome comes from the mother (an X) and the other comes from the father (a Y). In this case, the Y came from the Father, through the Holy Spirit. And as an added bonus, the Y came from the Father because if it had come from a human male, then Jesus would have the same sin nature that has been passed down from Adam since the fall in the Garden of Eden.

I think what concerns me most is that new Christians will read this and ponder its possibilities and take it as truth rather than the deception that it actually is. Authors such as this can lead many Christians astray unless we are properly armed and in the Word, studying and learning.

Pray up and be ready because there are more people like this author out there.

God Bless!
