False Prophets and Lying Wonders

False Prophets and Lying Wonders: "Have you noticed that no matter how many times charismatic televangelists make outlandish false prophecies, they never lack for followers, and they don't stop claiming the Lord has spoken directly to them?"

Lovers of Money

Lovers of Money: "Paul commands Timothy to avoid those who are lovers of money (cf. 2 Timothy 3:1-9). And yet the prosperity preachers are not only tolerated within evangelicalism, they are given a platform and sometimes even commended. The leaders of this movement are slaves of mammon, not Christ. So, how do you explain evangelicalism’s reluctance to shun Prosperity/Word of Faith teachers?"

Is Eternal Life Always Eternal?

Is Eternal Life Always Eternal?: "I remember exactly where I was when I discovered some Christians believe eternal life may not always be eternal. The moment is still etched in my memory. Shortly after I was saved, a friend invited me to a midweek Bible study at a local church. During the course of our study, one fellow asked, “How can someone know if he has lost his salvation?” As discussion ensued, it became clear he was talking about himself. This poor man thought he was in danger of losing his salvation."

Stone the Preacher

Stone the Preacher: "Ireland has a very distinctive history. It was an island untouched by the Roman legions, and Patrick, the Evangelist, brought to it the Gospel of grace."
