"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place." -2nd Chronicles 7:14,15
According to Pat Robertson, the Pope is a man of "deep spirituality." Robertson is the epitome of what's wrong with America... preachers have gone soft on sin. The truth is that the idolatrous Catholic religion is leading a billion people into Hell. Every preacher should preach uncompromisingly against Catholicism! The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders.
In spite of Bill Clinton's immorality and public deceit, his support for abortion and homosexuality, and other witnesses to his vile, unbelieving condition, many Christian leaders have praised him. Daniel Vestel of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship recently described Clinton as "obviously a person of faith and a committed Christian." Ed Dobson, pastor of Calvary Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, told Christianity Today in 1994 that Clinton is "more deeply spiritual than any president we've had in recent years." This is clear evidence of America's apostate condition.
After a meeting with the president at the White House in 1993, Jack Hayford, pastor of a Foursquare Pentecostal church and popular writer and speaker, said that he knows Clinton is a brother in Christ. After the same meeting, Roberta Hestenes, then president of Eastern College, said, "I'm absolutely convinced of his deep and sincere faith." James Dunn, then executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs, told the Washington Post in 1994 that Clinton "has an intensely personal faith" and "has a Christian baseline from which he operates."
"There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by old-fashioned preaching." —Dr. Jack Hyles
Bill Hybels, pastor of Willow Creek Community Church and church growth guru, faced Clinton on inauguration day in January 1997 and praised "the wisdom and the leadership and the vision in your life the past four years" and lauded "the development of your heart, your increasing desire to know God, and to live for him." Pastor Hybels gushed in his praise of Clinton's "increasing desire to know God and to live for him" and said he has seen him grow spiritually in the monthly private meetings they held together for four years.
Lest you should think that the Republican presidents are any better, naive Christian leaders all across America have been duped into believing that George W. Bush is against abortion. The tragic truth is that the Bush Administration has funded Planned Parenthood with $1,500,000,000 throughout his presidency. The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban was nothing more than a political stunt. President Bush has also denied the Christian faith by claiming that unsaved Islamic Muslims and Christians worship the SAME god. Nothing could be further from the truth. Yet, Bible-believing pastors across the United States have embraced Bush as a spiritual man, and a leader worthy of support. Bush is an imposter, a member of the Satanic--Bohemian Grove and Skull and Bones organizations. The overwhelming concrete evidence surrounding the 911 attacks has clearly indicted the Bush Administration as being guilty of orchestrating the attacks. It was George W. Bush who signed presidential directive w199i blocking all investigations into the suspect terrorists BEFORE 911. The average preacher is too cowardly or complacent to research the FACTS concerning 911, and to warn the American people. Thank God for honorable leaders such as Republican Congressman, Ron Paul, who has exposed the evil Bush Administration. WAKE UP PREACHERS! The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders.
Billy Graham is ignorantly honored by many Americans as a man of God. He may be a great man in the eyes of the world; but he's certainly NOT God's man. Billy Graham has gone the greedy way of Balaam, a prophet-for-hire, and is the pioneer of today's apostate ecumenical movement. The following quote is from the article, Billy Graham is a Great Deceiver!:
Earlier, at a news conference, the famed evangelist thrilled the cockles of the homosexuals' lusty hearts when he snapped to a reporter that he was tired of people trying to get him to criticize gays. "It's not the biggest of sins," Graham said. Billy followed this up by telling the smiling and happy liberal media: "What I want to preach about in San Francisco is the love of God. People need to know that God loves them no matter what their sexual orientation." Graham also proudly confided: "I have so many gay friends, and we remain friends."
Let me repeat what Billy graham said... "I have so many gay friends, and we remain friends." Befriending sinners with the Gospel is one thing; but condoning their sins is another. Billy Graham is wrong to diminish the sin of homosexuality. Billy Sunday never would have gone soft on booze, dancing, or gambling! The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders.
Billy graham has also been identified as a 33rd degree occult Freemason. Charles Taze Russell--founder of the Jehovah's Witnesses--was a 33rd Degree Freemason, as was Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormons. Jesse Jackson is a 33rd degree Freemason as well. Birds of a feather flock together! Did you know that Southern Baptist Convention church members compose 37% of the occult Freemasonry membership in the U.S.? That's apostasy! Please read: Freemasonry's "Great Architect" is Satan! No Christian should ever join or befriend Freemasonry. I knew a pastor, who foolishly appointed a Freemason as the president of his church board of directors. That neoevangelical pastor was eventually invited by the local Freemasonry lodge, to attend a special meeting in his honor. That minister in his selfish pride went down the the Freemasonry lodge, and in so doing, gave approval of their demonic organization. So sad! The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders.
Jack Van Impe is a wolf in sheep's clothing! According to TBN's Jack Van Impe, the Vatican's doctrines are wonderfully correct: "I believe in this book," Van Impe tells the TV audience, holding high the New Catholic Catechism. "The Catholic doctrines are right on," he adds. What a LIAR! The truth is that the Catholic Church is straight from Hell. Preachers all across America need to start relentlessly exposing the beast of Roman Catholicism! The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders. The fact that America's pulpits are silent concerning the damnable Catholic religion is proof of America's apostate condition. But you say, "Jesus taught love, and we won't win anyone to Christ by being hateful." You are 100% wrong. First of all, the Word of God is the most OFFENSIVE book ever written, and God is the Author. So if God wasn't concerned about offending sinners, then neither should we. Yes, the Bible does teach love; but It also teaches hate... "Ye that love the LORD, hate evil..." (Psalm 97:10). No, we should never hate people; but we are commanded to hate sin and evil. Homosexuality is evil, false religion is evil, abortion is evil, et cetera.
Shockingly, Christianity Today disagrees with a ban on gay-marriage. Christianity Today teaches teens that it's "normal" to be confused about sexual feelings, and that "Some same-sex activity or experimentation does not automatically mean that you are gay." Can you believe what you are reading... this is from Christianity Today!!! Listen friend... ALL same-sex activity is HOMOSEXUAL! Christianity Today also endorses Harry Potter's Witchcraft! Yet, America's church leaders promote and support Christianity Today. Why? The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders.
There were 74 abortions for every 100 births in the city of New York in 2004! Can you image, 74 abortions for every 100 births? And the most tragic thing is the SILENCE of America's church leaders, evangelists, and Bible teachers. Why are the churches silent??? America's church leaders have become so apostate that they could care less about the murdering of little babies! A U.S. News and World Report article (December 2003, The New Old-Time Religion, by Jay Tolson, pg. 42) quotes Lon Solomon, pastor of the McLean Bible Church near Tyson's Corner, Virginia (a megachurch that draws up to 10,000 people on Sundays) as stating...
"Abortion and homosexuality are minor concerns in our church. The bell we beat is that we must know Jesus. We are offering people a different and better way to live than secular America offers." -Read More
Preaching against sin is at the very core of the true Christian faith. Without preaching against sin, there is no conviction, and without conviction there is no repentance. This is the main problem in America today, and the reason why America is so messed up--because preachers have stopped preaching against sin! Go to the average so-called "church" today and you won't hear anything negative said about abortion, divorce, homosexuality, pornography, gambling, booze, hellivision, Freemasonry, false religion, movies, rock music, witchcraft, etc. And then the few churches that do preach against sin, never take the message outside of the church walls, operating more like the occult than a church. The word "occult" means "to hide from view." Most churches have their little "click" of people, and it's nothing more than a social club. When they do meet together, they criticize other Christians who are serving the Lord. Every church should be known in their local community as a sin-fighting church, and a charitable church, and a soulwinning church, etc.
Even more shocking and tragic is the deterioration of America to the point where many churches are now marching with the abortionists, in PRO-CHOICE rallies! Who would have thought a day would come in America when we would see Sodomite ministers behind church pulpits, or lesbian pastors? It is an abomination unto God!
Never before have so many professed "Christian" wives been divorcing their husbands. Due to the woeful evils of feminist thinking, women are TWICE as likely to file for divorce than men. Increasingly, and tragically, many Christians are perverting the Word of God to justify divorce. This is apostasy! Divorce is a horrible sin, and anyone who recommends divorce is in serious trouble with God, because all marriages are made in Heaven... "What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder" (Mark 10:9). There are NO grounds for divorce. You made a promise on your wedding day... "for better, for worse; 'til death do us part." There were no disclaimers in your wedding vows! Woe unto the pastor who recommends or encourages a divorce. The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders.
According to Wikipedia.org, the New International Bible (NIV) is the most popular Bible version today. What Zondervan Publishers won't DARE tell you is that they are OWNED by Harper Collins, who also publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex. Doesn't it seem odd to anyone with a brain and a love for Christ that the world's largest Bible publisher (Zondervan) is owned by the same company, HarperCollins, that publishes The Satanic Bible and The Joy of Gay Sex." Every pastor and Christian using the NIV are supporting these demonic publications.
Furthermore, the Jehovah's Witnesses' New World Translation comes from same Greek manuscripts as does the NIV! The Jehovah's Witnesses' Interlinear Greek New Testament is based upon the corrupt Greek of Westcott and Hort, openly admitted in front of the publication. This is unbelievable folks! Destroy your NIV. Why in the world would you want an NIV bible that removes the word "begotten" from John 3:16, says that Jesus couldn't grasp equality with God in Philippians 3:16, removes the name "Jesus" in 38 places, completely removes the word "Godhead" from the Bible, completely removes the word "sodomite" from the Bible, and changes every mention of people "worshipping" Jesus to a mere "knelt"? Thank God for the King James Bible!
The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders. We must start calling sin by name, and not be afraid to say what needs to be said. We must be bold to tell the truth about sin. I mean we need to come right out and let everyone around us know that we think homosexuality is sick, sinful, and Satanic. We need to get right to the point that abortion is MURDER! One of the biggest LIES of our day is that lost sinners won't get saved if we offend them. Nothing offends the wicked as much as God's Word (John 3:20). So if God's not concerned about offending the evil doers, then we shouldn't either. The truth is that Christ-rejecters are always looking for reasons to continue in their unbelief. No one with half a brain would ever believe evolution, accept someone who's looking for an excuse to rebel against God (2nd Peter 3:5). Evolution is a lie, besides being stupid. We have a God-given right to tell the truth, and must.
It is my heart's desire and prayer that God will stir a fire in the hearts of believers--that we may once again stand uncompromisingly against the evils of our day as Billy Sunday did in his, upholding the Truths of God's Word, contending for the faith, fighting the Devil, exposing the cults, loving sinners with the soulwinning Gospel, and honoring our Precious Lord Jesus Christ. What a Savior!
The root of America's ills is its apostate church leaders.
"Old-fashioned, Spirit-filled, Christ-honoring, sin-hating, soul-winning, Bible preaching! It is the hope of the church! It is the hope of the nation! It is the hope of the world!" —Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001) | How To Destroy The Human Race (Real Audio sermon by Dr. Hyles)
