Antichrist World Seduction And his False Church – Documentary


These teachers greatly helped me when I began to learn the truth about Roman Catholicism. This was many years after the Lord saved me. It took that long.

Quote of the day – Hugh Latimer

Psalm 119:104

NKJV

104 Through Your precepts I get understanding;
Therefore I hate every false way.

.

Hermann Schweder, painter - Hugh Latimer and Nicholas Ridley


The Bishop of London, Nicholas Ridley, and Hugh Latimer were executed on the 16th of October 1555, during the blessedly brief reign of Queen Mary. During her five years as sovereign, 280 religious dissenters were burned at the stake in the “Marian persecutions” (Wiki).

This quote of Latimer’s appears in a contemporary polemic against the Christian celebration of Christmas as a ‘holy day’. (It’s never out of season to consider this issue.) Following the quote, you’ll find the opening paragraph of the article.

“When candles go up, preaching comes down.”

“In the Highlands of Scotland in the mid-twentieth century Christmas day was regarded as an ordinary working day. There was little recognition of it in the community and almost none in the Presbyterian Churches. This was the result of the Reformed heritage handed down from the 16th century Reformation, and especially from the Puritan element within it, that prevailed in England and Scotland. Some observed the day as a family occasion; others celebrated New Year’s Day, as they did with Harvest Thanksgiving, to acknowledge God’s goodness in the past and seeking his blessing on the future…”

Rev John J Murray

1 John 4:1

NASB

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

The Discerning of Spirits

The Objective, Biblical Means to Discern Spirits

by Bob DeWaay

“My thesis is this: discernment is objective and the Scriptures alone give us the tools to discern spirits. In this article we shall see from the Bible that this is the case . . .”

YouVersion: A Discernment-Free Zone

Bud Ahlheim

“YouVersion is a discernment-free zone where potentially anyone self-identifying as Christian, especially those of celebrity status, can pen plans, edited, one presumes, for digital space only.  Content adherence to common sense Biblical interpretation, compliance with sound doctrine, or allegiance to orthodoxy is clearly not given editorial oversight.”
