Are leaders EXEMPT from criticism?

I often hear or read of leaders using phrases like ‘touch not mine anointed,’ or ‘who can stretch forth his hand against the Lord’s anointed and be guiltless?’ to silence criticism, and over the years I’ve noticed a disturbing tendency:...

Social Media Ministries are causing a Panic!

  Popular preachers like Jonas Clark have been for some time writing articles about how social media ministries are somehow renegades and not real ministries if they are not part of the institutional church system. In one recent article, Clark...

Walking in the FAVOR of God

Secrets of the Prophetic Life

There’s so much about life in the prophetic life that should be obvious, even common sense, but in today’s world of widespread chicanery, they may as well be secrets. Much of this has more to do with habits of character than...

Don’t choose style over substance

All too often we who are in leadership make the fatal error of placing style before substance. It’s good to want to communicate well, and to present your message and conduct yourself with excellence, but sometimes we put far more...

Brian Carn, the Lord rebuke you

;nbsp It recently came to light that Brian Carn’s ‘prophecies’ for 2015 were plagiarized from a psychic who posted the same predictions 11 months before he did. Rather than repent, Brian has refused to admit to any wrongdoing. Let’s discuss...

Prophetic Paintings? Really?

I’ll never be a fan of so-called prophetc painting. Why? First, there’s the issue of creating an IMAGE for a religious purpose. Too much like a golden calf for my liiking. Second, people are calling their paintings ‘prophetic,’ but by...

1 Corinthians 6 – Practical Sanctification: You’re free to be HIS!

When the saints try to say áll things are lawful,’and thereby try to give themselves permission to do as they please, I know they don’t understand the Bible. However, I blame the preachers for this, because as a group we’ve...

1 Corinthians 5 – Practical Sanctification: Dealing with Immorality IN the Church

Whenever I hear a Christian say ‘Only God can judge me,’ I’m pretty sure they didn’t read 1 Corinthians 5 closely or even at all. Why? Because in this chapter Paul addresses the fact that the church MUST judge those...

1 Corinthians 4 – Practical Sanctification and Spiritual Fatherhood

1 Cornthians 1 – Practical Sanctification, Part 1

Judges 20 – Misplaced Loyalties
