In the midst of the coronavirus I met a man who thought he knew Jesus….

What will be the outcome of the coronavirus? This isn’t meant to be prophetic or ‘thus saith the Lord’ … but how the corona virus will soften people’s hearts to ecumenicalism.

I left work last night from a 12 hour nursing day and wanted to hit Walmart to get some things that I needed. I met a stocker, his name was Francesco and he was probably about 60 years old. Very nice man with a thick Italian accent who looked tired and I thanked him for his hard work so we (the public) could have access to necessary items. I noticed a plain cross around his neck and said oh and pointed at it and said “what do you believe?”

He replied I believe in God and Mary. I said what about Jesus? He responded as an afterthought oh right, right him too, he’s the main one. I said he is the only one, him and him alone is the one who forgives us and only through him are we saved. He replied “right right yes! He is the main one because without him, we wouldn’t have Mary. “

As I tried to share more of the real Gospel with him his idolatry of Mary and the pope became more and more evident as he recounted a story to me. It was something along these lines, (difficult to understand with his accent) how many years ago a plague hit Italy and a woman went around the streets praying with “a scent” (??? I assume he meant a saint/graven image) and the plague went away, and according to Francesco, the pope is going to be doing the same thing and “he” (the pope) will make it right.

Once again I tried to redirect him to GOD who is the only one who can “make anything right” but he was so blind to the truth. I wanted to share this because when this virus is gone and it will be (not without much destruction in the process) people will talk about how “we all” came together and “took care” of each other and that’s “what the world” needs is “more kindness and less religion” which really means we don’t want that Jesus guy, or we want a Jesus that we like and create ourselves. And the people who are mixing politics with God, make sure you’re putting God first and Trump isn’t “your pope.”

How many gods do you actually believe in?

How many gods do you actually believe in?

Whether it’s 330 (33 million, or ’just’ 33 depending on the hindu source) million ‘gods’ in hinduism or the 10,000 in rome — the point is that polytheism is polytheism.

Although if you were to ask a hindu if they were polytheistic, they would likely respond with a ‘no’, as would most people who follow the teachings of rome. Neither party would ‘consider’ themselves polytheistic — but they are, in actions.

Prayer is defined in its most basic form as an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with an object of worship through deliberate communication.

In the narrow sense, the term refers to an act of supplication or intercession directed towards a deity (a god). When praying to a ‘god’ (‘saints’, ‘dead relatives’, ’spirits’ etc) other than GOD the Creator of all that is: the person (consciously or subconsciously) is assigning Gods attributes (omnipresent, omniscience, omnipotence) to that object of affection: so by default making that object an idol or a god.

Whether the person calls the object (s) of worship/adoration an idol or god or not, they’ve made that object (s) a god by their deeds, despite a conflicting verbal refutation of the former.

  • You shall have NO other gods before Me.”
  • “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God……”Exodus, Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Acts 17:29

There is no fear of the Lord…..

Here are some facts about crucifixion.

The person would support his weight by pushing up from the legs while simultaneously pulling up from the wrists. As the leg muscles would tire, he would have to allow his body to hang limp while struggling to breathe. This process continued until the leg muscles gave out, forcing the condemned to hang and suffocate.

In some circumstances, an executioner needed to end the crucifixion. To do so, the soldiers would break the persons legs by smashing the femur bones with a large, heavy mallet. This prevented the person from being able to push up from the feet to reposition the diaphragm for breathing, thus forcing him to suffocate.

Jesus Christs legs (bones) were not broken as was prophesied Exodus 12:46 also echoed prophetically in Psalms 34:20

It has been said that a broken femur is one of the most painful things a person can experience. The initial physical pain of having both femurs shattered at the same time would be devastating. Furthermore, the psychological torture of feeling death approaching would be mentally unbearable. Even though the condemned may want to die because of the intense suffering of hanging on the cross for so long, the simple fact is that the human brain and body are designed for survival. Pushing up on the legs to breathe is painful, but it satisfies that innate survival instinct.
The nails driven into the wrists would pierce the main nerve running through the arm. When the victim pushed up to breathe, the wrists rotated against the nail, which would irritate the nerves and cause intense pain in the arms. The direct exposure of the nerve to the thick slab of metal produced a constant, recurring pain that had to be endured every time the crucified person pulled up to breathe.

This would be like someone having an arm cut off and then having a piece of bone pressed into the open wound and twisted into the nerve.
Crucifixion involved more than just nailing someone to a cross. It was proceeded by a beating with a nine-tailed whip that had metal tips and bone clippings on the end of every strap.The executioner strapped the person to a block of wood while soldiers beat the shard tips of the whip into the back, buttocks, and legs of the condemned. The bones would tear into the flesh and then rip both skin and muscle away when retracted.
This was known as flogging and would sometimes last for extended periods of time. The purpose was to mar the victim beyond recognition up to, but not through, the point of death. Oftentimes, the tails of the whips reached over the back and clung into the front of the shoulders and the chest. The torturers also repeatedly lashed the skull, face, and neck. This tearing away of the human flesh put the victim into an immediate state of shock. Major blood loss ensued.

This continued after being nailed up. Every time the condemned shifted weight from the feet to the arms then back to the feet, his back rubbed against the splintered wood, causing a constant stabbing into the open flesh. Some of the wooden shreds remained lodged in the muscles and exposed nerve endings. Others simply tore the wounds even further open and then continued to streak the back with gore as the person shifted.
The initial beating alone was enough to induce the onset of hypovolemic shock. This occurs when a person loses 20 percent or more of the body’s blood supply. The blood loss depletes the body of oxygen and prevents the heart from pumping more blood, which results in even less reaching the cells. The cycle is vicious and can continue until the person dies from the condition.

The symptoms of hypovolemic shock include nausea, profuse sweating, dizziness, confusion, and loss of consciousness. Victims would frequently vomit, which, in some cases, hastened the speed of suffocation as bodily fluids choked and gagged victims who were already struggling to breathe.
This happens at the onset of the crucifixion. The vertical beam is already in the ground. The victim carries the horizontal beam, and then the executioner nails him to it while on the ground. With the person’s wrists nailed into the horizontal beam, the executioner lifts and then hammers it into the vertical beam.

When this happens, the persons feet still aren’t nailed into the vertical beam. Therefore he has nothing to push up with, and the weight of the hanging body, once raised, pulls the shoulders out of their sockets. The body then sinks lower, dislocates the wrists.

The result is that the arms are extended at least 15 centimeters (6 in) beyond their normal span of reach. This causes the body to hang in an extended, slumped position, which forces the chest cavity to protrude outward. The extended chest cavity allows for inhalation but makes exhaling nearly impossible. The effect from this is that carbon dioxide is not released from the body as is done through proper exhalation during the natural process of breathing.

Since the body doesn’t get enough oxygen while hanging on the cross, the natural physiological response is to hyperventilate. Not being able to do so, however, the heart pumps harder, trying to overcompensate for the lack of oxygen. The heart then goes into cardiac stress, which can even cause it to rupture inside the chest cavity.

Symptoms of hyperventilation include fever and anxiety. Fever produces aches in the muscles. Since the muscles are already cramping and in spasm, this adds more complication to the severity of the pain. Given the fact that the victim is literally dying in (and from) pain, he is already exceedingly nervous and anxious. Coupling this with the body’s physiological responses makes for a sense of nervousness and central nervous system shock that most people today will never experience in their lifetime. When a victim his hung on the cross, the knees are bent at a 45-degree angle. This forces the person to sustain the weight of the body with the thigh muscles. It is painful to bend the knees and support one’s weight with the thighs alone for even five minutes. Doing this for hours, even days, is unimaginable.
The natural way for our vital organs to receive oxygen is through the flow of blood. Proper movement of the body’s exterior limbs (arms and legs) and their interaction with gravity facilitate this process. The cross interferes. The stationary arms and legs, combined with gravity’s work of pulling the blood downward, prevents the vital organs from receiving the proper flow of oxygen.

The organs respond. The body’s natural tool for communication when something is wrong is pain. So, the vital organs signal to the brain that something is not right. They do this through the nerves that lead to the pain centers of the brain. Thus, along with all the other excruciating tortures on the cross, the oxygen-deprived organs scream unimaginable pain signals to the brain.

Aside from the ten facts above, it is important to remember two things: First, these do not happen in one nice sequence, with one occurring and then the victim having time to prepare for the next. They all happen at the same time. The combined effect is immense physical pain and torture. Second, the process of crucifixion lasted a long time. This list covers what happens, but reading it takes ten minutes. In some cases, crucifixion has lasted as long as ten days.

Crucifixion was more painful than just feeling three nails.
It was an excruciating way to suffer and to die.

The understanding of the Holiness of God is clearly lacking worldwide, as is reverence for Him.

Are we now calling sin a “hang up?” Really? No, seriously really?

Let’s soften sin a bit more, as not to offend anyone… and while we’re at it … also let’s just forget God is Holy, and He will not be mocked.

Yes He is Love, He is merciful, He is long suffering…. but do not forget HE is Holy.

He didn’t come as a man, Jesus Christ to “get hung up!”

Jesus Christ laid HIS life down willingly … no one took it from Him. And He did so while we were still sinners.  Romans 5:8

This screenshot (and posts/sermons) and many like it come from “leaders” and “pastors”… this is a complete insult to the word of God, a mockery of Jesus Christ’s atonement and an ignorance of our sin against a Holy God. And the “congregations” love it!

They “Amen” this junk and say preach more smooth sugary words to us! We love it! Scratch our itching ears … we love it! Preach it preacha’ and make us feeeeel goooood!

2 Tim 4:3
“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”

Let’s get back to how God defines and sees things …

Here’s the biblical truth:

We are ALL guilty before a Holy God! Every human being born stands guilty before God. Romans 3:10-12

Every single person born has transgressed Gods law. If you’ve lied just one time in your life – you’ve transgressed Gods whole Law. And you’re a liar. If you’ve so much as stolen a paper clip from work – you’re a thief and stand guilty before God. Romans 3:23

God does not “compartmentalize” sin as we like to justify ourselves as in “well it was just a paper clip it’s not like it was armed robbery”…. no … you’re a thief, as am I.

The ONLY (John 14:6) way to escape the wrath of God is to realize you (me) are guilty before a Holy God, and understand (believe by faith in Christ alone)  that Jesus Christ didn’t “get hung up” …HE LAID HIS life down and paid the penalty for our guilt to satisfy the debt WE OWE!

We all deserve an eternity in hell, despite what the emerging church will tell you that there is no such place or another comforting delusion that you can atone for yourself after death… Hell is just as real as Heaven. And not one person deserves Heaven. Romans 6:23

Christ’s work on that cross paid our debt in full .. once and only once and for “whosoever should call upon the name of the Lord!” Acts 4:12

Once indoctrinated ….. but now free.

Once indoctrinated ….. but now free.

Religious indoctrination, the original sense of indoctrination, refers to a process of imparting doctrine in an authoritative way, as in catechism.  I am certain my parents were doing what they thought was best, doing what their parents taught them, and what their parents, parents taught them and so on and so on, handing down a set of cultural and traditional belief systems through the generations.

Those (aberrant) belief systems are what God calls doctrines of men, traditions of men, and doctrines of demons.

God loves all people and wants them to come to a SAVING knowledge of His son Jesus Christ.

In Revelation and also Deuteronomy when we are told do not add or take from the words of this book/law/word. (Jesus Christ is the Word made Flesh John 1:14) All cults have one major factor in common, that is, they will assault Jesus’ Deity in some way. Walter Martin defined cultism as “…any major deviation from orthodox Christianity relative to the cardinal doctrines of the Christian faith.” 

Soteriology: The Work of Christ on the Cross is another area cults will attack.

The Bible states that man’s acceptance with God is based entirely on Christ’s work on the cross, completely apart from man’s works for God (Gal. 2:16,21; Rom. 3:19-26). Because of this, man receives God’s acceptance as a free gift by faith alone (Eph. 2:8,9). Though saving faith is evidenced by works in the life of the believer (James. 2:16-24), they are regarded as the fruit of salvation (Gal. 5:22,23), not as the basis for it. Cults generally attack the full sufficiency of Christ’s work on the cross and thus make salvation dependent finally upon man’s works for God.

Literally yes as in another “bible”

  • The Book of Mormon
  • The Watchtower
  • The Vatican / catechism & title vicar of Christ

Mormonism/JW’s (and some sects of Seventh Day Adventists and in many respects roman catholicism are the- modern day Judaizers ) clearly take away from Christ’s deity.

The official teachings of Rome (Vatican II /catechism) add to Christ’s deity by elevating Mary to co-redemptive / mediatrix—not to mention praying to her or any deceased person is necromancy, an abomination according to God, not according to the Maccabees, but according to God Almighty, Gods Word.

There is no biblical support (according to God) for Mary having any redemptive role in salvation found in Jesus Christ alone, nor does she have a special role in any church, no such thing found according to God’s Word. Mary was a sinful human being who needed Jesus Christ as her Savior, just like everyone else according to scripture (Ecclesiastes 7:20; Romans 3:23; 6:23; 1 John 1:8). Luke 1:46-47 “And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.” The pope replacing Christ (aka taking the title of Vicar of Christ) The biblical “Vicar of Christ” is the Holy Spirit John 14:26 according to Scripture.

So therefore like Paul said this (biblically according to God) constitutes another gospel another jesus & like Paul said (Galatians 1:6-9)

Dave Hunt from The Berean Call answers a question:

Question: “I have read and profited from your excellent book, “A Woman Rides the Beast”…And yet, 1 John 4 gives us a scriptural “litmus test” for recognizing the difference between the Spirit of God and the spirit of Antichrist. To the best of my understanding, the Roman Catholic Church does emphatically teach and confess the truth of this doctrine [that “Jesus Christ is come in the flesh”] as distinguished from the many pseudo ­Christian cults which explicitly deny it. If that is the case, then doesn’t it follow that the Spirit of God must still be speaking in some fashion through the Roman Catholic Church, and that it cannot be considered completely apostate?

Answer: Thank you for your encouraging remarks concerning “A Woman Rides the Beast.” I don’t understand, however, what you mean by “completely apostate.” Apostate is apostate. If a church preaches a false gospel that damns the soul (as Catholicism, like Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons, does) is it any consolation that it does affirm some truth (as all three do)? Obviously not. A false gospel that damns the soul is a false gospel that damns the soul even if some elements of it may be biblical.

Does the Roman Catholic Church pass the test of 1 John 4, “every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God,” and therefore “cannot be considered completely apostate”? No. The English “is come” in the King James follows the Greek construction, which means “came once for all time.” The body that Jesus took when He “was made flesh, and dwelt among us” (Jn 1: 14) was resurrected and He still occupies that body in glory, and will forever.

This fact obviously eliminates reincarnation. It also eliminates the Roman Catholic Mass. In that alleged “sacrifice” it is claimed that Christ comes again and again “in flesh” through priests turning wafers into Jesus Christ, whole and entire, body, soul, spirit and divinity, to be ingested into the stomachs of the faithful for the forgiveness of their sins.

Furthermore, even if the Roman Catholic Church passed this test, that would not mean that she preaches the true gospel of Jesus Christ, which, of course, she does not. First John 4 does not say that to confess that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh means that everything else this person or group may say is therefore also of God. Balaam said much that was from God, even giving valid prophecies, but he also said much not from God and is in hell today.

Yes, Roman Catholicism does teach some truth: that Jesus is fully God and fully man, born of a virgin, died for our sins on the cross, rose the third day and is coming again. Yet even the truth which it teaches it perverts: Mary is the immaculately conceived, ever virgin “mother of God,” Jesus is still dying in the sacrifice of the Mass, and His death upon the cross nearly 2,000 years ago was not sufficient to save but He must be “immolated” perpetually on Catholic altars, and ingested into one’s stomach to provide increments of salvation. Such teachings constitute “another gospel” and warrant Paul’s anathema (Gal:1:6-9).”

I personally know many ‘pastors’ and ‘leaders’ who have embraced this book (movie) The Shack and actually continue to promote it to their congregations. I hope this authors newer work will open peoples eyes who have been seduced by The Shack and it’s universalist author Paul Young. Especially the leaders who should be protecting the sheep and not leaving the gates of the pastures open to wolves. How beautiful is the truth that even this blasphemy against Christ Himself, Christ says one can still be forgiven and have eternal life in Him…. that is mercy, that is love! (Matthew 12:30-32)

The Shack and its’ deceptive message:

When People Say, “But The Shack is Just a Novel!”


“Shack Author: Now Jesus is Pregnant with Adam Paul Young, author of The Shack, Eve, and The Lies We Believe About God, is pulling many away from the Savior and the Word of God. His Mother Goddess is only one of many theological problems he presents via his books and appearances.] [Following the release of Paul Young book Eve], Don Veinot of Midwest Christian Outreach intervewed James B. DeYoung, the author of Burning Down The Shack and The Lies Paul Young Believes About God. DeYoung was friends with The Shack author Paul Young, and was one of the first to learn that Paul Young had rejected the biblical God. He is a semi-retired seminary professor. The interview segment below is transcribed from the video…It lasts two minutes or so. Here DeYoung speaks of Paul Young’s book, Eve. Please note how Young, once again misinterpreting the meaning of El Shaddai, spews forth a mutated version of Christ. Here is the brief, transcribed portion of the video. Professor James B. DeYoung is speaking, starting at 31 minutes and 32 seconds: 31:32 Eve is Paul Young’s novel dealing with rewriting Genesis chapters one, two, and three, the story of Creation, and then the making of Adam and Eve. And the way that in Paul Young’s view that Adam and Eve came into being is that the Earth Man, who is Jesus Christ becomes pregnant with Adam, and after nine months gives birth to Adam, and then after Adam becomes pregnant with Eve, Adam gives birth to her after nine months… …and both of these infants at that time, immediately after birth, nurse at Jesus’ breasts. That to me is almost shameful for me to say that kind of thing, but I relate that because I think that Paul Young is imbibing at the drink of pagan mythology, myths that were in vogue in the Canaanite…” Read more here:

Art Designer of  “The Shack” Book Cover Says He Regrets His Involvement: 


“I look back and see how little discernment I had. And I regret and apologize also for waiting this long to publicly share this,” he writes. 

He says the problem is that the book advocated for universal reconciliation or universal salvation, a doctrine that claims that since Jesus died for all, then all are saved, whether they believe it and receive Him personally or not.

Aldrich says this is a grave distortion of John 3:16. 

He goes on to say that John 3:18 makes Jesus’ purpose clear:

He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

The Emerging Church….. and its sympathizers.

The Emerging Church….. and its sympathizers.

There is an elephant in the room.. it’s called the “Emergent/Emerging Church” (Postmodernism/Emergent-Liberalism)…. what is it?

It is deception by reidentification is what it is. “Hath God said” …. Genesis 3:1

The emergent church – we have some ‘leaders’ in that.

Just a few here:

  • Rick Warren
  • Dallas Willard
  • Dan Kimball
  • Andy Stanley

All of the above names,  an influential Christian youth apologist leader Sean McDowell has defended and /or given and receiving accolades to or from.

 Sean praises Dallas Willard

 Who is Dallas Willard?

Sean receives / gives accolades to Dan Kimball Calling him “insightful” —Praising Dan Kimball

Who is Dan Kimball and why is he accepting endorsements from Rick Warren from Rick Warren?  Who is Dan Kimball?


Rick Warren and the purpose driven “lie”

More Rick Warren

Yet, more Rick Warren


Why is Sean McDowell preaching at saddleback church  Rick Warrens church and then again in May 2019 preaching at Rick Warrens sister church? 


Sean McDowell ‘defends’ Andy Stanley regarding Andy Stanleys comments to unhitch  from the Old Testament” – Sean states “Andy Stanley has a remarkable history of preaching the gospel, being faithful to scriptures.”

🚨 ⁉️ Pause here for a moment, Andy Stanley has called himself an “apologist” or offers “apologetics” so tell me … how does one contend /defend the Word of God if one doesn’t hold to its inerrancy & authority to begin with 🚨 ⁉️

Andy Stanley “is remarkable at being faithful to scripture.”

One cannot be faithful and deny the Word of God at the same time.

 Andy Stanley promotes Enneagram after Sean praised his preaching if he is so “remarkable” at preaching the gospel?

 What is the enneagram anyway?

So the question needs to be asked, of a rising leader (SeanMcDowell) who has a great influence over the youth– does he know what he’s aligned with?  I have reached out to him, his colleagues, and Biola University, and no reply. He doesn’t appear to refute emergent teaching in his own blog post.

Biblical discernment is practically obsolete in the body of Christ and certainly wherever there is false teaching, anyone with discernment won’t be welcomed for long.


🚨 Be alert 1 Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.”

🚨 Matthew 7:13-14 Enter through the narrow gate for wide is the gate and broad the way leading to destruction, and many are those entering through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it.

🚨 The great apostasy being fulfilled 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3

If they do not repent they are sure to hear on that Day:

Jesus will say “And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”
