“In regard to the divine and holy mysteries of the faith, not the least part may be handed on without the Holy Scriptures.  Do not be led astray by winning words and clever arguments.  Even to me, who tell you these things, do not give ready belief, unless you receive from the Holy Scriptures the proof of the things which I announce.  The salvation in which we believe is not proved from clever reasoning, but from the Holy Scriptures.”  Cyril of Jerusalem (Died 386 AD)
Andy Stanley continued his denigration of Holy Scripture in his series, Who Needs God, by establishing himself as some sort of Gnostic leader of a Gnostic church. His Sunday, September 4, installment opened with a response to criticism he’s heard about his previous message, criticism coming from “people who are not part of our church community who watch from the outside.”
HIs opening words found Stanley greeting a number of people, though. There are those at Buckhead Church, where he was … umm … preaching, those on the various campuses of Northpoint Community Church, those watching online “from the lake or beach” during the Labor Day weekend, those watching via the internet, and those viewing from their “strategic partners all over the country” and the world.
Ironically, the critics, he said, are not part of “our church community” like the welcomed masses of the diverse outlets he greeted upon taking the stage. He commented that “It’s always amusing to read the comments of people who are not a part of our gathering.”(Well, gee, Andy, if you wouldn’t put your nonsense on the internet, maybe you could keep it all to yourself and avoid the critics. We’d like that too.)
“Some people have come to the conclusion that I don’t believe the Bible.”  Andy Stanley
Yes. That is correct. Some people have come to that conclusion. However, none have come to that conclusion by arbitrary means. It is a conclusion arrived at solely on the basis of what he proclaimed.  The crowd chortled when he said this, but curiously Andy did not make a definitive statement to contradict the conclusion of the critics.
“It is next to impossible to defend the entire Bible.”  Andy Stanley
That was from Stanley’s “sermon” last week. Not too many ways to improperly exegete that. Putting it back within the full context of his message doesn’t help either. In fact, while addressing the critics this Sunday, Stanley didn’t walk back that “conclusion” either. In fact, he ultimately reinforces it.
But before getting to that, Stanley responds to his critics by lauding the intelligence of his audience at Northpoint who “gets” what he’s doing.
“I realize part of the reason that I’m easily misunderstood by people who don’t understand what we do because they don’t do what we do and they’re not part of this fabulous community that you’ve helped us create, whether you’re a Jesus follower or not … have chosen to be part of one of our churches.”
Uhh … yeah … okay …
Point one … members of Andy’s church are simply smarter than those watching “from the outside” who “don’t do what we do.”
Point two … Andy, then, is doing something outsiders cannot understand (especially if they’re Bible-believing outsiders!) . It’s a “special” understanding only he and Northpointers have, not something those who “don’t do what we do” can grasp.
In the annals of church history, such a thing has been called Gnosticism. In more modern times, some might call groups claiming special knowledge cultic, kind of like Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons. Whatever it might be called, one thing it is not is Christian. In Andy’s case, we know it’s not Christian, not merely by his denial of Scripture’s authority, integrity, and sufficiency, but by the following point number three.
Point three … Andy’s “church” isn’t a church. Most of us already know this, but at least he clarified it here.  Not that he’d dare define church in any sort of Scriptural way (after all, he denigrates God’s Word), such as the fellowship of genuine, regenerate believers in Christ “devoted to the apostles’ teaching,” (Acts 2:42)  Andy does implicitly define what his “church” is. It’s a “fabulous community” created by folks who “have chosen to be a part …whether you’re a Jesus follower or not.
So, while critical outsiders looking in at the goings on of Andy Stanley and his dangerous, anti-orthodox, emergent theology may not be smart enough to understand the secret smart stuff he’s doing there, those who comprise his “church,” and evidently do “get it,” don’t even need to be believers.
I’m glad Stanley clarified that. But, a gathering of unbelievers isn’t a church, it’s a club. Regardless of how “fabulous” the community is, unless it is intentionally comprised of “Jesus followers,” (there are always tares among the wheat, of course, sometimes, even in the pulpit) it’s something other than a church, and that something is other than Christian.
The world today is exemplary of the very sort of thing Stanley is doing. In our post-modern culture, growing ever more depraved, moving farther and farther away from absolute truth, and towards tolerant personal relativism, words are being redefined. Marriage is perhaps the most glaring example of the world’s attempt to redefine what only God can, and does, define.
But what the world is doing, suppressing truth in unrighteousness, (Romans 1:18) Andy Stanley is doing with terms like “Christianity,” “faith,” and “church.” In this message alone he shifts from calling it the “Old Testament” to referring to it as the “Jewish Scriptures,” a technique he uses to minimize their importance to the Christian faith. He’s redefined Christianity as a thought system one can selectively choose, “Jesus believer or not,” and “church” as a gathering of those intentionally choosing membership, but not predicated by authentic regeneration.
You don’t need to “repent and believe” to be “a part” of Andy’s church. There’s no need to be born again, or even profess to be. As with last week’s message, Stanley reaffirms that you don’t even need the Bible.
“Christianity does not exist because of the Bible. It is the other way around. The reason there is the Bible is because of Christianity. And this is one of the concepts that so many people outside our network of churches have a hard time understanding.”  Andy Stanley
Pointing to the audience before him, Stanley says, “I think that you get it.” Why do people in Andy Stanley’s church understand his denial of Scripture as a valid presuppositional apologetic intended to bring back to church membership people who left church because they were obviously not Christian to begin with?
“Because you’re above average intelligence if you attend one our churches, okay? You get this.”  Andy Stanley
His straight-faced delivery of this line, gathering some chuckles from the crowd, yet reflects Stanley’s response to the critics who have challenged his denial of Scripture. He and his Northpoint crowd know something others don’t. “But at some point,” he says, “we need to grow up and see this the way it actually is. And the great news is that Christianity does not hang by the thread of the Bible.”
Martyrdom of William Tyndale, Guilty of Translating Scripture into the English Language

Martyrdom of William Tyndale, Guilty of Translating Scripture into the English Language
Really? It’s a shame God didn’t know these things when He raised up men through the millennia to protect His inspired Word, when He ensured its transmission through the ages, and its translation into countless languages for the propagation of His Gospel. It’s a shame God didn’t catch on to the special knowledge Stanley has so that He might have prevented the needless martyrdom of men who realized the Truth of God in His Word was more valuable than their own lives.
“Christianity does not rise and fall on the integrity or the verifiability of the entire Bible.”  Andy Stanley
In Stanley’s case, since you don’t need to be a Christian to actually be a part of the church, it makes sense that the integrity of God’s Holy Word isn’t foundational.  If you’re not going to preach the Gospel from the Word, through which Christ builds His church, then that Word is useless because that isn’t a church.  That’s how Andy is redefining “Christianity.”
Stanley extols a God powerful enough to raise Jesus from the dead, but somehow that same God is not capable enough to deliver to His followers an inerrant, infallible Scripture?  That may be the god of Stanley’s post-modern, gnostic “Christianity,” but it is certainly not the sovereign One of two millennia of authentic Christian orthodoxy.

When he gets to the crux of his message for the day, The God of Jesus, Stanley makes three quick points.  While those points are correct, they offer an incomplete view, but one that supports the post-modern redefinition of faith he’s apparently pursuing.
God is Spirit.  Apart from the propositional truths God has laid down in an inspired, infallible Word, how do you think a “smart” post-modern mind will take this attribute of God?  As the God of a mystical, contemplative, esoteric faith to be apprehended by feelings? (after all you can’t trust the Bible)  Does Northpoint offer Christian yoga?  That would be fitting.
God is Father.  Unlike the mysticism of Eastern religions where God is viewed as a force or a cosmic “oneness,” Stanley points out, again correctly, that God is personal.  But apart from His self-revealing Word, wherein He dictates rules for all people, God as a Spirit Father imbues faith not as founded on absolute truth, but on relativistic, personal preference – after all, it’s unnecessary for the Old Testament, those non-Christian “Jewish Scriptures” to be verifiable.  And as for the New Testament, Stanley merely refers to it as “first-century documents written by early followers of Jesus.”
“I’m sure we still owe Jewish people an apology. The Christians took the Jewish Scriptures and combined them with the first century documents written by the followers of Jesus, bound them together, and eventually called it the Bible.”  Andy Stanley
God is love.  This emphasis perfectly fits the “it’s all about you” false gospel Stanley propels.  Without the need, or call, for repentance and belief, without a clear understanding that His hatred of sin and His wrath upon it are equal divine attributes, God becomes your magic genie, a choice you get to make to enable your life to be fuller, richer, and more purposeful.  The problem, of course, is that Scripture doesn’t teach this God, but, with a diminished view of Scripture, Stanley does.
Indeed, when a “pastor” like Andy Stanley in a “church” like Northpoint can place himself over Scripture, in place of Scripture, and in denial of Scripture, “Christianity” can become anything he’d like it to become.
But one thing is sure … the “Christianity” Andy Stanley touts is not the “faith once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 3)  It something foreign, something false, something eternally perilous.
Though the church, from the first century forward, has always honored God’s Word as inspired, infallible, and the supreme standard by which the Christian life of faith is to be guided, Stanley denigrates it as unnecessary.  Those prone to tolerate his errors ought to be reminded of the truth about rat poison.  It’s 97% protein, to be sure.  But it’s the 3% that is lethal.  Truth mixed with error begets error.
The words of Cyril of Jerusalem ought still guide us today. (And since they’re not in Scripture, maybe Stanley will even pay them some heed.)  Winning words and clever arguments can lead astray.  The Holy Scriptures, though, always give proof to truth.  And Andy Stanley is intentionally teaching a diminished, distorted view of truth as he emphasizes the expendability of God’s Word.
But if you’re a Northpoint outsider who happens to “abide in my Word,” (John 8:31) you already know the “faith” proclaimed there is a deadly mixture of truth and error.  Pray for those souls who don’t.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), rightly claimed by many to be neither Evangelical or Lutheran, has released a resource guide to aid clergy with the performance of liturgy in the “marriage” of sodomites.
You can see the entire document here.
press release at ELCA’s website states:
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has developed supplemental resources for use within the Evangelical Lutheran Worship marriage service. The liturgical resources were developed based on action by the ELCA Church Council to implement recommendations from the “Ministry to and with Same-gender Couples and Their Families” working group.
The apostate denomination, that claims the slogan, “God’s Work, Our Hands,” and is now in communion with the Vatican, fully affirms homosexuality, and accepts them into their congregation as “needed members with gifts.” Rev. Kevin Strickland, ELCA executive for worship says “These supplemental resources have been created to offer more inclusivity in language, pastoral care, and openness for all persons who seek to be married within this church.” The ELCA adopted a resolution in 2009 resolving to find ways for “committed” sodomites to serve as leaders in the church (page 22).
Preceding many of the great judgments of God throughout biblical history, you will find sexual immorality among the people. God destroyed entire cities (Genesis 18:16-19:29) because his creation practiced these things that are detestable to him. Scripture is undeniably clear the homosexuality is an abomination to God, and in no way does he approve of it (Leviticus 18:22Leviticus 20:13, etc.). Further, Scripture is exceedingly clear that those who practice sodomy will not see the kingdom of God.
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. – 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
The council states on page 2 that “The new challenges to long-held understandings regarding homosexuality led many to consider again the meaning and application of Scripture as well as the Lutheran theological heritage.” In other words, the intention is to twist and reinterpret Scriptures to sick and perverted desires of the flesh.
For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.
It is very clear that the ELCA does not know God or even know who he is. There is no acknowledgment of Christ, and no desire to walk in the light of his truth. These wicked people who rationalize their sin are ignorant and unstable, and do this to their own destruction (2 Peter 3:16).
Lord have mercy on our souls.

In early July, Christian freedom activist Bill Whatcott and a small group of friends used stealth to infiltrate the Toronto sodomite "pride" parade for the purpose of distributing thousands of flyers with a brief Gospel message and the graphic truth about the dangers of homosexual behavior. The flyers also called out Justin Trudeau and other Canadian politicians who aggressively support the militant homosexualist movement.

Whatcott signed up to march in the parade under an alias (since he is well-known to homosexual activists in Canada and would not otherwise be allowed in by those "tolerance" pushers). He named his marching group the "Gay Zombies Cannabis Consumers Association," and they wore full-body costumes that hid their identities. Their mission was a huge success, as they were able to distribute their flyers to people all along the parade route.

This sent the militant homosexual/"transgender" world into irate fits, and now some militant homofascists, who claim they have suffered "provable" psychological harm because of the flyers, have hit Bill with a $104 million-dollar class action lawsuit. As reported by the DailyXtra:

"Prominent gay lawyer Douglas Elliott has filed a $104-million class action lawsuit against anti-gay activist Bill Whatcott for crashing the 2016 Toronto Pride parade.

"Elliott is also seeking an injunction from the court to prevent Whatcott and his associates from crashing anymore Pride parades in Canada.

... The lawsuit seeks in part to determine the identities of those who marched with Whatcott and those who financially supported the political stunt through subpoenaed documents.

"'Those who paid for his airfare or donated Aeroplan miles to get him to Toronto, those who put him up in Toronto, the people who paid to print the pamphlets: anyone who helped him in any way could be on the hook for $100 million dollars.' says Elliott, whose firm Cambridge LLP is handling the lawsuit."

When homosexualists use stealth and lies to infiltrate every institution, it's "justified," but when Christians surreptitiously slip them the message of salvation through Jesus and the ugly truth about the mental, physical and spiritual dangers of homosexual behavior, it's "hate speech." When homofascists bully their way into St. Patrick's Day parades and use lawfare to force people to participate against their conscience in the evil sham of same-sex "marriage," it's "legitimate," but when Christians gain access to their public displays of obscene vulgarity for the sole purpose of spreading messages of life-saving truth, it's an unspeakable outrage.

Oh, but we're used to this lunatic double standard by now.

This wicked, frivolous lawsuit is just one of many examples of how the militant homofascist movement is a tool used by the enemies of God, truth and freedom to intimidate into silence those who love truth and hold right, moral views on marriage, family and human sexuality. The primary targets of this vile movement are Christians and Christianity, because that is the essence of the true battle being waged on earth. It is a spiritual battle, playing out in the physical realm, between the forces of Satan and God.

While this lawsuit is in Canada, the very same kinds of outrageous "lawfare" are happening in the United States. It's the same movement with the same goals: the destruction of freedom of speech, conscience and religion, the destruction of moral absolutes, and the destruction of the meaning of marriage, family and even the immutable meaning of male and female.

The people in this homofascist movement have a deep hatred for God and His Word. They are foolishly proud in their sin, and they despise those of us who tell the truth about it, those of us who expose the reality of their perverse, dead-end behaviors and their despotic schemes. They will not stop until they succeed in criminalizing the truth we tell. Bill Whatcott tells this truth boldly, and he is effective for Christ, so he is fiercely hated by these people, as this insane, baseless lawsuit demonstrates.

However, just because the lawsuit is baseless in no way means it will naturally be dismissed. Dark, spiritual forces are at work here, and they have inspired with blindness far too many people in positions of authority, and they aggressively work to silence those who tell the wretched truth about homosexuality, "transgenderism" and related behaviors. Many of these people would gladly throw Christians in prison (or worse) for opposing them.

Bill desperately needs our help in defending against this hell-born lawsuit. He cannot afford a legal defense on his own, but he does now have a lawyer. There is a funding page set up for Bill's legal expenses. Please help, if you can. You can donate at this link. Be aware that it is a Canadian transaction, so you may have to notify your bank that it's a legitimate donation you're making, in case it's flagged as suspicious. You can also send donations directly to Bill's lawyer here:

107 Wellington Street
Ontario, Canada

Phone: 1-519-761-7000

As the days grow ever darker in this world, we must stand firmly on the truth of God's Word, pray for each other and offer material support when and where we can. Please pray, and continue praying, for Bill Whatcott as he faces powerful evil forces that are hell-bent on the destruction of his freedom.


China Forces Obama To The Back Of The Bus
Published on Sep 7, 2016
A confrontation between a White House aide and a Chinese official, and other diplomatic dust-ups were out in the open from the moment Air Force One landed in Hangzhou, site of an economic summit.


This is how it usually unfolds.
The main deck door with rolling staircase.
Barack Obama ‘deliberately snubbed’ by Chinese in chaotic arrival at G20
The US president was denied the usual red carpet welcome and forced to ‘go out of the ass’ of Air Force One, observers say
China’s leaders have been accused of delivering a calculated diplomatic snub to Barack Obama after the US president was not provided with a red carpet staircase to leave his plane during his chaotic arrival in Hangzhou before the start of the G20.
Chinese authorities have rolled out the red carpet for leaders of India, Russia, South korea, Brazil and the U.K., who touched down on Sunday morning.
But the leader of the world’s largest economy, who is on his final tour of Asia, was forced to disembark from Air Force One through a little-used exit in the plane’s belly after no rolling staircase was provided when he landed in the eastern Chinese city on Saturday afternoon.
The belly door
When Obama did find his way on to a red carpet on the tarmac below there were heated altercations between US and Chinese officials, with one Chinese official caught on video shouting: “This is our country! This is our airport!”
“The reception that President Obama and his staff got when they arrived here Saturday afternoon was bruising, even by Chinese standards,”the New York Times reported.
Jorge Guajardo, Mexico’s former ambassador to China, said he was convinced Obama’s treatment was part of a calculated snub.
“These things do not happen by mistake. Not with the Chinese,” Guajardo, who hosted presidents Enrique Peña Nieto and Felipe Calderón during his time in Beijing, told the Guardian.
A Chinese official said there was no intended snub.
“It would do China no good in treating Obama rudely,” the official, who declined to be named, was quoted as saying.
“China provides a rolling staircase for every arriving state leader, but the US side complained that the driver doesn’t speak English and can’t understand security instructions from the United States; so China proposed that we could assign a translator to sit beside the driver, but the US side turned down the proposal and insisted that they didn’t need the staircase provided by the airport,” the official added.
The US president offered a diplomatic reply when asked to comment on the airport “kerfuffle” on Sunday during a joint press conference with Theresa May.
“I wouldn’t over-crank the significance of it because, as I said, this is not the first time that these things happen and it doesn’t just happen here. It happens in a lot of places including, by the way, sometimes our allies,” Obama said, adding that “none of this detracts from the broader scope of the relationship”.
Obama suggested his Chinese hosts might have found the size of the US delegation “a little overwhelming”.
“We’ve got a lot of planes, a lot of helicopters, a lot of cars and a lot of guys. If you are a host country, sometimes it may feel a little bit much.”
The Americans always operate big, and the delegation travelling with the president providing support is no exception. At least two giant C-17 Globemaster transports accompany the President. One carries the “Beast”, the armoured car like presidential limousine. As well as Secret Service support vehicles and equipment.  Another one carries “Marine One”, the presidential helicopter, other support helicopters may also be part of the contingent.
With this huge presence landing at your airport, and we know how the Americans sometimes can be assertive and over-bearing, the Chinese figured proper protocol was out the door. Thankfully, Obama said enough of this noise, use the retractable metal stairs.

Postscript: Donald Trump said it was a terrible snub by the Chinese. He said if that happened to me, I would have closed the doors and flew the hell out of there. Trump would flee the highest level economic summit in the world, because he didn’t get stairs with a red carpet!

Phyllis Schlafly, the leading pioneer of America’s conservative movement, has died at the age of 92.
“She is and was an icon of human liberty,” said Alex Jones. “Without trailblazers like her we would have no chance against the forces of tyranny.”
Schlafly, a formidable pro-family grassroots organizer who was politically active for 70 years, founded the conservative Eagle Forum in 1972 and served as president since then, overseeing the organization’s rise to 80,000 members today.
“Her focus from her earliest days until her final ones was protecting the family, which she understood as the building block of life,” the Eagle Forum said in a statement. “She recognized America as the greatest political embodiment of those values.”
“From military superiority and defense to immigration and trade; from unborn life to the nuclear family and parenthood, Phyllis Schlafly was a courageous and articulate voice for common sense and traditional values.”
Schlafly’s entrance into politics was almost accidental; she majored in political science at Washington University because it the the only major that offered classes that fit into her graveyard shift schedule as a ordnance plant worker during World War II.
After the graduated, at the age of 22, Schlafly led the 1946 campaign of Republican congressional candidate Claude Bakewell to a major upset victory.
She was also a key player in the defeat of the Equal Rights Amendment pushed by feminists in the 1970s, arguing that the ERA was designed to benefit single, young career women at the expense of middle-aged housewives with few job prospects.
The amendment was ratified by 35 states, three short of the necessary 38.
“The ERA was defeated when Scholarly turned it into a war among women over gender roles,” said legal scholar Joan C. Williams.
She was also a frequent guest on the Alex Jones Show.

WASHINGTON — Concerns are being expressed over a new rule proposed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that suggests that it plans to ban states from defunding abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.
The notice of proposed rulemaking, “Compliance with Title X Requirements by Project Recipients in Selecting Subrecipients,” outlines that it plans to amend the Code of Federal Regulations to read, “No recipient making subawards for the provision of services as part of its Title X project may prohibit an entity from participating for reasons unrelated to its ability to provide services effectively.”
Title X was enacted in 1970 under the Public Health Service Act and authorizes the Office of Population Affairs to oversee the disbursement of federal funds for the purpose of assisting organizations that offer “family planning” services. States distribute the capital to reproductive and women’s health organizations as they see fit.
In recent years, a number of states have sought to defund the abortion giant Planned Parenthood after granting the organization funds for years, stating that they do not wish to assist groups that provide abortion services, even if the funds will not be directly used for abortion.
But the Obama administration contends that stripping abortion facilities of funding adversely affects the number of unplanned births in the nation.
“Certain states have policies in place which limit access to high quality family planning services by restricting specific types of providers from participating in the Title X program,” HHS wrote in its proposed rule notice. “These policies, and varying court decisions on their legality, has led to uncertainty among grantees, inconsistency in program administration, and diminished access to services for Title X target populations,” it wrote.
“Reducing access to Title X services has many adverse effects. Title X services have a dramatic effect on the number of unintended pregnancies and births in the United States,” HHS continued. “For example, services provided by Title X-funded sites helped prevent an estimated 1 million unintended pregnancies in 2010 which would have resulted in an estimated 501,000 unplanned births.”
The department also asserted that defunding family planning facilities because they perform abortions “may shift funding from relatively high quality family planning service providers to providers of lower quality.”
But some have expressed concern about the proposed rule and its effect of forcing states to fund Planned Parenthood, including Tennessee Rep. Diane Black, a member of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.
“This latest stunt from President Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services should surprise absolutely no one,” she said in a statement on Tuesday. “We’ve known all along that the Obama Administration will go to untold lengths to protect its friends in the big abortion industry.”
Black outlined she plans to write a letter explaining why a number of members of Congress oppose the move.
“We must use the full force of Congress and the grassroots strength of the national pro-life movement to defeat this absurd rule and prevent the Obama Administration from acting unilaterally to carry out political favors and prop up a scandal-ridden abortion provider,” she stated.
The rule is now open for public comment.
