Or Contentious?

By Dr. Jim Jenkins


Legendary Chicago Bears linebacker Mike Singletary... look at his eyes.

If the last 5 years have taught me anything, it is that how we say what we say about the Bible and Jesus is very important... and very delicate. Note that I did not say that the Gospel or the Bible are delicate. No, I said how we come across as we attempt to communicate these timeless truths in an era of increasing lawlessness is of major concern.

I am remembering a guy from the seminary I attended who was formerly a linebacker on his college football team. He was extremely 'ripped' as the saying goes. He probably had a body fat index that would rival Olympic athletes. He also had an intensity about him that often came across as a menacing countenance. I knew him and I was intimidated by him sometimes.

A Christian music artist (who was attending the seminary at the time) planned an outdoor concert in Los Angeles... right in the heart of Watts. We were at Will Rogers Park, right at the epicenter of the terribly destructive riots that had taken place just a few years prior. Donn Thomas, an African American musician, had invited a number of us to go along and minister to those who would respond to his altar call. My linebacker friend, let's call him 'Bill' joined us as Donn began to play "Can't Nobody Do me like Jesus... He's my friend" and "Ain't no Rock Gonna Shout in my place... Long as I'm as I'm Alive to Glorify His Holy Name..."

Donn ministered powerfully and he gave an altar call. Bill and I and the others began to pray with those we hoped to lead to the Lord. Bill (I forgot to mention that he also spoke in a very loud voice) was ministering to a young boy about 13. I watched as Bill got closer and began to speak louder. The boy began to back up and Bill continued to advance.

The International Agenda

Dr. Martin Erdmann has just announced he is scheduling seminars across the country on the topic of “The international agenda of Church and State in America: an historical and religious analysis.” To read more about this click HERE and to schedule an event click on Contact.

Regarding this topic, we have previously reviewed Dr. Martin Erdmann's book Ecumenical Quest for a World Federation HERE.

Below is a synopsis of Dr. Erdmann's proposed seminar.


Synopsis of the Seminar:
In the first half of the 20th century elite corporate and political leaders in America such as John Foster Dulles and his brother Allen began to drum up religious fervor as a tool to build their utopian vision of a global international order. Their influential efforts would eventually gain more traction during the Eisenhower administration where both of these brothers ascended to prominent positions of power. Their vision is summarized in a letter written by Lord Lothian (Philip Kerr), the British ambassador to the USA and a personal friend of John Foster Dulles:

“I am convinced that when Christianity reaches the point when it is able to bring the Kingdom of Heaven upon earth it will establish a world federation of some novel kind as the necessary institutional condition by which alone the Kingdom can be maintained in being.”

Unbiblical Unity on the National Mall

“...a reset clears past errors and gets the system working...”

“...we have downloaded the wrong files, corrupted the system...”

7-16-16 Washington Mall Event to “Reset Christianity”
Millions of evangelical leaders, authors, and entertainers will be gathering at the National Mall in Washington DC on July 16 in a concerted effort to ‘bring heaven down to earth’ in what has been called a national “revival”, “great awakening”, or secondary “Pentecost”. The Together 2016 event is closely aligned with the doctrines and personnel of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) that teaches a strident form of Dominionism, a fact that will be documented in this article. The fervor is high with the backdrop of a hotly divisive election year, violent civil unrest, and looming calamities on all fronts. Organizers of this broadly-touted event say that they want to forge Christian unity in all of this, but in order to achieve it, we must lay aside biblical doctrine which, they say, brings further division. Regrettably, as the Scriptures clearly teach, the resulting spectacle will only lead participants away from Christ and into full-fledged apostasy. Below is what is being touted:
