Shock Poll: Me-Centered Gospel Results In Dramatic Drop Of Biblical Beliefs
Verse of the Day
Proverbs 1:23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.
Looking for the Blessed Hope; Jesus Christ coming for his church.
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
“A new Barna poll points to a dramatic drop in biblical beliefs among American Pentecostals and Charismatics. If the findings are accurate, what are the likely causes?
According to the poll, “although we proclaim ‘In God We Trust’ on our currency, a slim 51% majority of Americans believe in a biblical view of God — down from 73% thirty years ago. Increasingly, the research finds mounting evidence that Americans are both redefining — and rejecting — God.Orthodox Beliefs About God Declining Most Rapidly Among Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches”Stunningly, Americans are more confident about the existence of Satan than they are of God. Overall, 56% contend that Satan is an influential spiritual being, yet almost half (49%) are not fully confident that God truly exists.”
More specifically, “The largest declines in possession of an orthodox, biblical perspective on the nature of God since 1991 were among individuals who attend Pentecostal or charismatic Protestant churches (down by 27 percentage points); people in the 18 to 29 year old category (down 26 points); adults in the Elders generation, (i.e., people born before 1946, down 25 points); and women (down 25 points).”
MIDDLE EAST: WAR BREWING?
Obadiah 1:15 For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done (to Israel), it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.
“Jordan’s King Abdullah has warned that should Israel move forward with plans to annex parts of the West Bank, it would lead to a “massive conflict” with his country, and did not rule out pulling out of Amman’s peace deal with the Jewish state.
In an interview published Friday by the German daily Der Spiegel, Abdullah insisted that a two-state solution was “the only way forward” in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“What would happen if the Palestinian National Authority collapsed? There would be more chaos and extremism in the region. If Israel really annexed the West Bank in July, it would lead to a massive conflict with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan,” he said, when asked by his interviewer about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s intention to “take advantage of the opportunity that [US President Donald] Trump has created to seize large parts of Palestine.”
THE FUTURE WITH THE HARD LEFT
“The United Kingdom’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted) argued before the High Court that Christian groups should not allow their religious beliefs to influence their professional activities.
After an inspection and review in March 2019, Ofsted, a non-ministerial department of the British government, downgraded the Christian-run Cornerstone Adoption and Fostering Service from “good” to “requires improvement” because it only places children with married Evangelical Christian couples.”
“Anti-democratic Democrats opened up a new front in their relentless war on an independent judiciary in America.An absurdly-named special-interest group calling itself “Demand Justice” filed a formal complaint with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals accusing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of wrongdoing in stacking the federal judiciary with judges who believe in abiding by the Constitution.
On the face of it, the complaint is funny because it suggests that “Demand Justice” is so unfamiliar with the actual Constitution that they don’t even know how judges are installed on the federal bench. According to the Constitution, federal judges are nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.”
STATES IN REBELLION AGAINST THE HARD LEFT
“Wow. Big, big news today coming out of Dauphin County, Pennsylvania. There, the County Board Chairman, Jeff Haste, issued an open letter to the people of the state that he was making the decision to re-open his county in defiance of Democrat Governor Tom Wolfe’s absurd, illogical order extending statewide lockdowns through June 5.
Several things to note here: Dauphin County is home to Harrisburg, the state’s capital city. It is not some rural backwater, but a robust county with roughly 280,000 residents. Haste himself appears to be a Republican, although his bio page does not list a party affiliation. In his letter, Haste carefully lays out a wealth of factual information that Gov. Wolfe would rather the public not know about.”
WE-THE-PEOPLE VS HARD LEFT TYRANTS
“Calls for the impeachment of Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf (D) are increasing after the governor doubled down on Monday, accusing Pennsylvanians who are moving to reopen outside of his orders of engaging in a “cowardly act” and issuing threats to businesses that fail to comply with his directives.Wolf on Monday dismissed Pennsylvanians who remain under lockdown orders, which he recently extended to June 4, drawing further ire from critics.”
CHRIST HATING IN US MILITARY
“A group known for challenging religious expression in the military has lodged a complaint with the commander of the US Army Garrison in Stuttgart, Germany, against an Air Force officer for conducting church services from his barracks balcony. The complaint letter describes the singing and Bible reading from the balcony as “hideous” and “wretched”, allegedly creating a “particularly horrific, unconstitutional situation.”
In a letter to Colonel Jason W. Condrey, Mikey Weinstein of the so-called Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), terms the balcony singing and Bible reading as “Sunday Christian Porch Preaching” and says it is a violation of the First Amendment establishment clause and various other laws and directives from the military.
The offender, Weinstein says, is USAF Lt. Col. David McGraw. And the fact that he is an officer makes his balcony services all the more egregious because, according to Weinstein, “he is directly violating Air Force Instruction (AFI) 1-1, Section 2.12.”
HARD LEFT ATTACK: BELIEVERS IN MILITARY
1 Samuel17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD’S, and he will give you into our hands.
Deuteronomy 20:3 And shall say unto them, Hear, O Israel, ye approach this day unto battle against your enemies: let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them;
“Republican lawmakers are urging the Department of Defense to protect religious liberty of U.S. service members during the coronavirus pandemic.
Republican Reps. Doug Collins of Georgia and Doug Lamborn of Colorado led 18 other lawmakers in sending a letter Thursday asking Secretary of Defense Mark Esper to protect religious liberties within the armed services, which have been targeted by the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF), according to the lawmakers.“Despite these Federal mandates and guidance from the Army Chaplain Corps, commands have taken action that restrict the religious freedoms of military chaplains and service members,” the letter says. “This pattern of behavior must be addressed.”The MRFF is an organization “solely dedicated to fighting for the constitutionally guaranteed separation of church and state for our U.S. military service members,” founder and president of the MRFF Mikey Weinstein told the Daily Caller News Foundation.Collins said the MRFF is “anti-religious group with a reputation for preying on military chaplains,” and told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview that the organization has “actively exploited the current pandemic to attack our nation’s service members” in recent weeks.“These attacks are deeply concerning and threaten the very freedoms our service members fight to protect,” Collins said. “I’m calling on the Department of Defense to take action to ensure our military is protecting the religious liberty of its members.”
CHINESE COMMUNISTS VS USA
“The Chinese Communist Regime is furious after US lawmakers brought lawsuits against the regime for the destruction of the coronavirus on US lives and economy. The regime is considering punitive countermeasures against US lawmakers and US firms behind the coronavirus lawsuits.
The regime is also threatening to retaliate against lawmakers and their home states. China threatened economic trade war with Missouri over Senator Josh Hawley’s attacks on the regime.”
HARD LEFT ARISTOCRACY IN ACTION
“Chris Koos is mayor of Normal, Illinois in Mclean County. There are 169,572 people in McLean County Illinois. There have been 112 cases of coronavirus in McLean County, Illinois and 3 coronavirus deaths this year.
Chris Koos has the city of Normal shut down due to the coronavirus. Well, most of Normal anyway. Chris Koos left his bike shop “Vitesse Cycle Shop” open. He declared it essential business.Earlier this week there was a protest to re-open the city and allow residents to work. Instead of listening to the protesters Mayor Koos mocked them.”
PROTESTING THE TINY TYRANTS
“There was another rally against tyrannical Governor Newsom today in southern California. Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson ran into one fired up Trump support – “MAGA HULK.” This guy is HUGE!
Benny Johnson reported: MAGA HULK has a message for Democrats trying to lock him up.MAGA HULK will not let tyrannical leftists destroy America.
