10 Theses for a New Reformation


In every generation, the church takes some steps forward and some steps backward. Some old truths are rediscovered but other foundational teachings are forgotten; some scriptural emphases are recovered while basic gospel practices are abandoned. What are some critical, fundamental areas that need reformation today?

1) We must re-emphasize the centrality of the cross with all its implications.

2) We must reconnect to the Jewish roots of the faith.

3) We must live out the reality of the priesthood of all believers…”

Anne Graham Lotz: 3 Sins America Refuses to Repent For


„God is abandoning America, Anne Graham Lotz says, because we abandoned Him and refuse to repent for three specific sins: abortion, abandoning Israel and gay marriage. 

„I don’t think we are too far gone, but I believe we are reaching the point of no return,” Lotz said in a video. 

The evangelist says our country easily fulfills Romans 1, which details how God gave man over to sin. 

„God just backs away and gives us over in His first path in this downward spiral to sexual immorality. That is the sexual revolution, that is free sex, which actually is very expensive,” Lotz says…”

The Prophesied Exodus of Saints From Churches That Quench the Spirit’s Power


„My speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God” (1 Cor. 2:4-5).

I had a dream recently of a pastor who was worshipping the Lord in a service, but all around him there were distractions. People were not paying attention, and hardly anyone was focusing on the service. Then the Spirit of the Lord showed me that there was no expectation in the service because the pastor had built a low ceiling. This is the present hour situation in many churches today, and this is an important word for ministers and saints…”

Did God Send a Prophet to Rebuke John MacArthur?


„The video has now gone viral, providing embarrassment for the charismatic movement and fodder for those who deny that the prophetic gifts are for today.

A self-proclaimed prophet from Scotland disrupted a Sunday morning service on Aug. 16 as Pastor MacArthur stood behind the pulpit, rebuking him for teaching cessationism and for being divisive, announcing that he was a prophet sent by God.

Pastor MacArthur listened quietly before security removed the man, who continued to call for repentance as he was escorted out the door…” Read more>>

8 Clear Signs of Hypergrace Churches


„The past several decades we have seen a dramatic decline in doctrinal and biblical preaching. We have gone from theology to therapy in the pulpits. In the past decade we went from therapy to motivational speaking instead of preaching.

In addition to this, whole churches and movements have oriented themselves to a distorted understanding of the gospel by espousing a „hypergrace” approach that trickles down to not only what they preach but who they allow to minister and teach. (I was told there is even a new television station devoted to this view of „grace.”)

Furthermore, many churches and preachers refuse to take a stand against sin and rarely if ever mention the need for repentance and topics like hell and judgment! Many of these same churches allow people to minister in music, as small group leaders, and even as ministers with no personal accountability while looking the other way when they are living sexually immoral lives and regularly engaged in drunkenness!…” Read more>>

Pharaoh in the Church: Pastors Must Stop Using People to Build Kingdoms of Man


„God is looking for leaders who are humble, broken and driven by the fear of the Lord not the fear of looking like failures to their peers. We must be a people who trust God fully.

It’s sad how much competition between churches there is today—as each pastor is working hard to keep „their people” and build their kingdoms…”Read more>>

Judgement Will Start in the House of God


„We want to build a church rather than break a heart. This leaves people confused and deceived because we teach and live a form of Christianity void of repentance … void of truth. (Steve Sutherland/Flickr/Creative Commons)
It’s no surprise that the church, and our nation, desperately need to hear „the voice of one crying in the wilderness” to awaken, convict and restore. It was not so long ago that we were concerned about „the fall of America.” America cannot fall because she has already fallen. We are now picking up the pieces of a broken nation. America’s moral heartbeat ceases when we cut off the source of life. We need resuscitation, renewal and revival….”Read more>>
