Break out your tinfoil hats boys and girls; this conspiracy has everything. It's got the Illuminati, weather control, Democrats and liberals, and prophetic words from God. Let me introduce you to Mark Taylor the "firefighter prophet." Taylor is a former fireman who retired and made a name for himself by claiming he had a prophetic … Continue reading Democrats, liberals and the Illuminati are sending hurricanes to flip red states to blue.
Mike Pence recently gave the commencement speech at Liberty University. In his speech, he warned “Throughout most of American history; it's been pretty easy to call yourself Christian; it didn’t even occur to people that you might be shunned or ridiculed for defending the teachings of the Bible. But things are different now,” he continued, … Continue reading Mike Pence Promotes Christian Persecution Myth
Although Jerry Falwell is well known for his homophobia, as a founder of the Religious Right, he is also a racist. As I pointed out in my last post, Fundagelicals have kept their racism hidden behind a smokescreen of "pro-life" and "anti-gay" rhetoric. Now that the Religious Right has gained real political traction, their racism … Continue reading Jerry Falwell Sr., Laying Racist Foundations
This is the last in my series answering the critiques of Progressive churches.

Growing up as a Fundagelical, I was taught that there was absolute truth and my pastor and church were in possession of that truth. Our car bumpers, Bible covers, and other Jesus junk were emblazoned with the saying "The Bible says it; I believe it; that settles it." Disagreeing with the doctrine handed down to … Continue reading Are Progressives redefining theology?

I've covered the first two signs here and here, and today we look at the third sign. To quote Crosswalk, Essential Christian doctrines are open for … Continue reading Are Progressive churches heretical?
My last post dealt with the "dangers" of progressive churches. Fundagelicals don't like Progressives because their questions undermine Fundagelical's absolute authority and that is seen as a threat to their power. How do you spot a Progressive church and avoid getting sucked into it? Well according to the website the second danger sign is "Feelings … Continue reading Are Progressive churches too touchy-feely?
Fundagelicals are absolutely apoplectic about progressive churches. Nasty progressives are teaching such un-Christian things like how we should love our neighbors; the Bible must be interpreted in context; and worse, Leviticus isn't a guide book on morality. I've noticed an increase in the number of articles published on how to spot, with the intention to … Continue reading How to spot a progressive church.
I was discussing faith healing with another ex-Fundagelical last week. That gave me the idea to write about some of the fraudsters who practice so-called "faith healing" and to write about the bad theology involved in the "word of faith" movement. As I was doing research, I came across a website that told me Peter … Continue reading Let’s Do An Experiment!
The Religious Right is in a tizzy because a Religious Left candidate is running for the office of president and is offering a different viewpoint on Christianity. The Religious Right has been the loudest (and most obnoxious) voice of Christianity since the 70s, and for many non-Christians, it is the voice they identify with Christians … Continue reading Pat Buchanan vs. Pete Buttigieg
