Five Solas of the Reformation

The Five Solas of the Protestant Deformation

The church has “functionally replaced the Five Solas of the Reformation with pragmatic, and often idolatrous, solas of our own making,” says Bible study author, speaker and blogger Michelle Lesley. I’d venture to say that a large number of professing Protestants have no clue what the five solas are. Not only that, many Protestants are unclear […]

Our Top 7 rules for commenting

Hey! Where did those comments go? When it comes to our comments policy, I’ve always believed that Christians should be able to glorify Christ with their words and actions, without me imposing rules. That hasn’t happened, in spite of our updated Comments Rules of Conduct Policy. And so I have implemented a new website tool […]

The ‘Progressive Christian’ Charade

Five years ago I penned a series of articles entitled “Liberals Created the Culture of Evil and Death.” Due to the aggressive tactics of the “fake news” media and counterfeit Christians, I decided to dust off part three and re-post a portion of it on Berean Research.  One of the liberals who has been masquerading […]

New NAR group to keep your eyes on: The International Coalition of Prophets

Holly Pivec of Spirit of Error alerts us to a new NAR coalition (NAR is keen on coalitions) professing believers mustn’t take part in. Not surprisingly, the group is asking those who join to pay an annual membership fee that ranges from $300 to $350 per prophet. Since this isn’t exactly chump change, it seems aspiring […]

“I can’t find a solid church”

I recently received an email that has become a common heart cry for those hungry sheep who are not being fed a solid diet of pure milk and meat of Scripture: “I am finding it difficult to find a congregation in my area that is not filled with compromise. I currently attend a Vineyard church […]

Evangelical Coalition Releases Nashville Statement, A Manifesto On Biblical Sexuality

A manifesto written by evangelical leaders has drawn the ire of the LGBTQ community, the liberal press, and has Progressive Christians ticked off as well.  Why? Because conservative evangelicals had the audacity to release a statement proclaiming that traditional sexual morality is based on the clear teaching of Scripture, not on the whims of an […]

Hillsong’s Brian Houston Says He Believes in Biblical Marriage, But Christians Shouldn’t ‘Dismiss’ Homosexuals’ ‘Desire to Pursue Happiness’

Two years ago Amy Spreeman posted a piece by Churchwatch Central entitled “Brian Houston admits he can offer “no great answer” on gay stance.”  She began by letting us know that “No one has a better handle on what’s going on with Hillsong’s background with the homosexual issue than Churchwatch Central, based in Australia.

Sinner's Prayer

“My church practices the ‘Sinner’s Prayer'”

Several readers have asked us, “What should I do if I am attending a church that practices the Sinner’s Prayer?” If you’ve ever been to an evangelical church service or ministry outreach, you know the drill: Head down, no looking around, just you and God, sappy background music, and just slip your hand up if […]
