Here is Purpose-Driven Goat Herder, Cole Phillips pimping his latest self-help serminar which will answer relationship questions like "how do you know you've found the right one" and "how do you strengthen rocky relationships"?
Since Cole doesn't understand that his job as a pastor is to PREACH THE WORD (2 Timothy 4:1-4), we think he should step down from from the pulpit and open a marriage family therapy practice.
Ed Young missed an opportunity to proclaim Christ and Him crucified for our sins to a national audience last night on Colbert. Instead, we got this embarrassing performance by one of America's most popular seeker-sensitive Goat Herders.
Anyone who has been watching and warning against Post-Modern Liberalism (The Emergent Church) will be not be surprised by Tony Jones' denial of the Biblical Doctrine of Original Sin. But, for those of you who may be shocked by what is 'emerging' from the Emergent Church we have this bit of Bible denying apostasy to share with you.
For Record Here is what the Bible has to say about Original Sin.
Eph. 2:1 And you were dead in the trespasses and sins 2 in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— 3 among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.
Rom. 5:12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned...
Rom. 5:18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.
Psa. 51:5 Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Rom 3:10 as it is written:
“None is righteous, no, not one;
11 no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”
13 “Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
14 “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 in their paths are ruin and misery,
17 and the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
Romans 8:6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. 7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. 8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Apparently Pine Ridge Church is on a mission to bring sexy back. We think it is time for these pastors to find different jobs and for the parishioners to demand that they bring Jesus back.
Keep in mind that PastorGoat Herder Tadd Granstaff is NOT licensed nor trained as a sex-therapist and is not qualified to lead a group therapy session on this topic. Even if he were, Church is not supposed to be a group therapy session AND Jesus Christ has NOT commissioned HIS church to 'bring sexy back'.
Here is a sampling of what goes on at Rick Joyner's Morningstar "ministries" (a so-called 'christian' ministry). This is probably one of the most disturbing videos that we've seen in a while (and that is saying a lot!). The only word that comes to mind is DEMONIC!
The simulation took place on January 19, 2009, one day before the inauguration of President Obama, in Des Moines, Iowa, where His meteoric rise began. While onlookers waived palm branches, a motorcade consisiting of 4 black SUVs, the sculpture affixed to a donkey, and secret service agents made the the mile long triumphal entry which ended at the steps of the State of Iowa Capitol building.
In a new YouTube video produced by Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions, dozens of celebrities – television and movie actors, sports heroes, musicians and more – describe how they will pledge to "be the change" and "be a servant to our president."
Throughout the video, the celebrities pledge to support local food banks, to smile more, to be better parents, to work with the charity UNICEF, to "never give anyone the finger when I'm driving again," to help find a cure for Alzheimer's, to meet neighbors, to use less plastic, to plant 500 trees, to "be more green," to turn the lights off and to "free 1 million people from slavery in the next five years," among dozens of other pledges.
The purpose of all this pledging is summed up in the video's grand finale.
Actors Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher begin the closing scene by saying, "I pledge to be a servant to our president and all mankind."
