Final 2013 Financial Update

On New Year's Eve I wrote an email update stating that we were about $11,800 from meeting our year-end goal.

After tabulating the online and snail mail gifts that came in we fell only $3,100 short of our goal. That is a real "Praise the Lord!"

But there is still time to give toward this goal here in 2014!

Remember, this special year-end project is specifically for upgrades and outreach as we look forward and does not reflect our ongoing monthly budgetary needs.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who gave in this special offering to help us move forward to reach more lives in 2014!


Give a one time donation or make a monthly pledge here.

New Evangelicalism: The New World Order
by Paul Smith

Like cascading dominoes, the intentional departure from believing the Bible is inerrant has plunged the church of the 21st century down the treacherous slippery slope of accommodation and compromise.

* Why have so many evangelicals identified themselves as new evangelicals?

* What is the relationship between Fuller Seminary, the Purpose Driven Church, and the Emergent Church Movement?

* How is the Emergent Church push for globalization harmonizing with the new world order in these prophetic last days?


Addressing these and many more questions with riveting case studies coupled with staggering and sobering documentation, the author unfolds the shocking progression of ideas that were birthed in a nest of aberrant church beliefs.

The Cross in the Shadow of the Crescent
by Dr. Erwin Lutzer


Islam is on the rise all over the West, including America. In this compelling new book, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges Christians to see this as both an opportunity to share the gospel and a reason for concern.
 We have now reached a tipping point--the spread of Islam is rapidly altering the way we live. These changes are cause for alarm, for they endanger our freedoms of speech and religion.

Using the guise of "discernment," some individuals have been using their platform in the apologetics community as a means to promulgate a brand of sad, critical Christianity. While predicated upon little more than an attempt to elevate their own narrow views concerning peripheral doctrines, these so-called "super discerners" operate with a grating, holier-than-thou brashness. Painting those who dare disagree on virtually any point as ignorant or foolish, these few "brothers" spare little in an effort to bully others into conformity. This "scorched earth" methodology is an evil, divisive plan that only Satan could concoct. And who has fallen into it? Apologists that should know better! And why? Perhaps pride and greed have blinded some to break fellowship
Is hyper-critical name-calling REALLY contending for the Faith? - Eric Barger, Clip 4
In this clip Eric Barger expresses his concern for what is being called "discernment" in today's Church.
over non-essential issues that should otherwise be off limits. Besides the actual issues themselves, the environment created is frankly a twisted form of religious bigotry that has created enemies amongst third parties who have been and should still be allies - and all of this inside the Body of Christ! The "us and them" atmosphere that has resulted from pretentious created controversies pertaining to peripheral doctrines and practices is poisonous - and unbiblical. Considering this, is it any wonder that some in the Church now reject anyone or anything pertaining to apologetics?

As tragic as that fact may be, the biggest victim is likely the very ministry of apologetics itself. What if the next generation of apologists mistakenly takes its cue from those who are currently more interested in promoting their own personal brand of sterilized Christianity then they are in truly defending biblical faith?


Truth must be the motivator of discernment. But biblical apologetics isn't about proving how correct one is and how heretical another may be - especially on secondary issues. Though discernment is often about exposing darkness and warning the Church concerning aberrant theology and practice, we should always evaluate what spirit discernment is being carried out in. Do we dare treat others in the Body with public disdain, even refusing to communicate with them concerning points that could never classify as "central" or "essential" doctrine? Discernment at any level must be conducted in an authentic spirit of correction with grace as the barometer for our words and actions. Otherwise we become little more than a "sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal" (I Cor. 13:1).


I'm calling on truly discernment-minded Christians to beware of those using the shell of apologetics but who come in the wrong spirit and push their own peripheral agendas. True Christians can have a difference of opinion on many issues without trying to decimate or play "gotcha" with those we disagree with. We need each other in the Body of Christ and those set on tearing down or even destroying another Believer over purely secondary ideas and beliefs are only helping Satan accomplish his vile mission.


One final word. Those who fit the description I've warned of in this piece and in the accompanying video clip have one thing in common: a haughty spirit. Let's not forget what the Bible says about that.


"Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall." (Proverbs 16:18)

Evolution: True Science Fiction (January 11, 2014)
In the first segment Jan Markell answers her critics. Then Ray Comfort joins Jan and Eric Barger to talk about the ravages of evolution today. Sound bytes of Ray's film, "Evolution vs. God", are played that are stunning. Evolutionists clearly illustrate that they cannot defend their "faith" and prove the theory to be true science fiction. As more people with a Godless agenda try to seize power everywhere, Comfort allows us to see that they are poor apologists and even worse "scientists." Yet this is the new "religion" of secular humanism. If there is no God, then any kind of depraved behavior can be excused as we came from pond scum. Get a view of why society is imploding. Buy the Comfort DVD for as little as $1 at You can view the DVD there as well.
