Podcast: SER 178 – Steven Bancarz – The Second Coming of the New Age

2019.02.20

The New Age Movement is the ultimate tolerant intolerance. What does that mean? Those who advocate for principles that are collectively called New Age are tolerant of anything except true Christianity. The reason is clear: the synthesis of religions that disavow the God of biblical Christianity cannot tolerate the antithesis (biblical Christianity) of their position.

The New Age amalgamation of spiritualism is dominated by occultist and therefore Satanic teachings. Nevertheless, many Americans are being systematically deceived by the invasion of New Age thought and practices.

This episode of SER is my conversation with Steve Bancarz about his experiences as a New Age adherent and teacher, and how he was freed from all of that by trusting in Jesus Christ.

Guest Post: The Purpose of Marriage – Pastor Mike Spaulding

GardenOfEden

The covenant of marriage is a testimony of love for God and the love a man and a woman share. It is a testimony to our love for God because He created marriage and said that it was good for a man to cleave to his wife.

The covenant of marriage has weathered a lot of storms over the many years since God caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep, and from his side create woman whom Adam named Eve – the mother of all the living.

Marriage as God created it was never meant to be a burden or to create hardship. God’s design for marriage is that it becomes the standard bearer for what true companionship looks like.

What should be apparent to people and especially to Christians, is that companionship’s foundation is spiritual. That’s what Moses was describing when under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit he wrote: “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.” (Genesis 3:24)

God’s reasoning is very clear – two is better than one.

Podcast: SER 177 – Mark Goodwin – Are You Prepared For The Coming Storm?

2019.02.13

Tonight’s show features Mark Goodwin, a prolific author, who is writing a 3-book series. This show will be a discussion of evil in the culture and the apostate church falling fast.

Have you heard of the super hero, Sun Man? (Is this just a re-run of Nimrod/Baal from the Bible?) Have you heard that Jesus is a transsexual? One worship leader in a PCA church is promoting such an idea.

St. Paul warned the early Church that wolves would come “from yourselves.” Watch out!

2019.02.07 SER

I was introduced to Pastor Sam Jones on a recent radio program. I was blessed to hear him speak that day and since, as we have become better acquainted. Pastor Sam and his friend and fellow servant Patrick Wyett have become fast friends. I am encouraged by their love for our great God and by their thirst for truth and righteousness.

Podcast: SER 175 – Doug Woodward – Rebooting the Bible

2019.01.30 ser

For five hundred years, the Church used this Old Testament Bible. Its Apostles quoted this Bible almost 300 times when they created the books of the New Testament. We know this Bible as the Greek Septuagint (LXX).

Its Pentateuch was created about 280 B.C. in Alexandria, Egypt, only 200 years after the Hebrew Bible had been assembled by Ezra in Jerusalem. Translators added the remaining books over the next 150 years. Once finished, Greek-speaking Jews throughout the world relied on the LXX as the Hebrew language grew increasingly unfamiliar. The Church Fathers (e.g., Polycarp, Irenaeus, and Justin Martyr) quoted it extensively since they did not know Hebrew. However, after the Latin Vulgate became the accepted Bible of the Western Church during the fifth and sixth centuries, and Greek ceased as the “lingua franca” of the world, the LXX receded into the background. Only the Eastern Orthodox Church retained it as its Bible.

Jamie is a former Marine Corp Infantry Sergeant, Police Officer, Firefighter/Paramedic Specialist, Tactical Medic, and Disaster Response Specialist. That was until God said “follow Me, Jamie.”

Guest Post: Pastor Mike Spaulding – Biblical Prophecy Refutes Earthly Utopian Dreams – Part 1

But take heed; behold, I have told you everything in advance. Mark 13:23

Utopian dreams burst onto the American mainstream consciousness in 1967 with the iconic “The Age of Aquarius/ Let the Sunshine In” medley originally part of the Broadway production of Hair, later recorded by the R&B group The 5th Dimension in 1969. According to the lyrics, the remedy for mankind’s needs is found in the planets and star constellations of our galaxy.  To gain insight into our shared path forward in peace and love, mankind must “look to the stars.” The lyrics state this plainly:

When the moon is in the Seventh House
And Jupiter aligns with Mars
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.

Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind’s true liberation
Aquarius.[1]

The 5th Dimension enjoyed a six week ride at number one on the Billboard charts with this breakthrough song. Clearly, Americans were ready for more peace and love sentimentality. The radio jingle “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing,”[2] adapted for a Coca-Cola commercial in 1971 provided another push toward the globalist dream of peace, safety, and unity. In this song we were entertained by a very early effort to condition us to multiculturalism. People of all walks of life, nationalities, and ethnicities, all gathered on a hilltop to sing kumbaya. Actually, the lyrics were much more in line with the re-emerging idea of the earth as a living organism.
