6:22 PM - Megachurch Builds $26 Million Entertainment Center
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – A megachurch in Alabama recently held an open house to celebrate the opening of its $26 million dollar, six-dome entertainment center, which some are stating is far from biblical Christianity and the example of the early Church.
Faith Chapel Christian Center in Wylam, near Birmingham, completed the project on it 137-acre campus last year, all of which was funded by the tithes and offerings of its more than 6,400 members. The facility is located in a depressed area where a number of residents are low-income.
According to reports, the facility features—among other amenities—a 12-lane bowling alley, a basketball court, a fitness center, a banquet hall and cafe, a teen dance club, and an adult alcohol and smoke-free night club.
5:53 PM - The Main Role of ISIS
I've also included a snippet from WAB about ISIS, which is no more a real threat to America than the CIA's Al Qaeda was. Like Al Qaeda it is being used to scare the sheeple into supporting more government orchestrated war in the Middle East. That and killing Christians and other innocent civilians. ISIS may be used as the scapegoat for another high profile false flag event like 9/11. And it could be in the near future.

CORRECTION: This morning’s edition of the WAB had a story about an NY policeman violently mistreating a breastfeeding mother, causing the baby’s death. The story was a fraud, and was written on what claims to be a satire website. I’ve removed the story, and apologize for not remembering that National Report is not legitimate news. That said, this site is actually more than just a satire site. It’s specific purpose is to lure people into a trap based upon stories so detailed and realistic as to defy the meaning of satire, and which are actually true in terms of the problem being depicted. But in the process, the writer is trying to discredit and embarrass those who believe these things really happen---but they do, all too often.
So, although the story in National Report was manufactured, it was too realistic to be humor or satire. It was meant to be believed and embarrass those who believed it and who disapprove of police foul-mouthed, aggressive behavior and the all-too-common "whatever I say is the law" attitude.
ISIS AS THE NEW FLAGSHIP TERROR THREAT
Whenever a relatively new terror organization starts bragging about how it’s going to take over the entire Muslim world, and simultaneously threatens Jerusalem, Europe and the US, you can bet it’s either the work of an irrational braggart or a propaganda stunt by Western intelligence agencies to give new urgency to the flagging and phony war on terror that has for so long held the West in its Machiavellian grip. Their claims are so far-fetched that they could only be useful at spreading fear among the British and American people who are once again being called upon to support a new war on terror. There is another specific reason, however, for western funding ISIS as a new enemy—it gives the US its long-awaited excuse to get back into the Syrian conflict, and it won’t be to “help Assad” or get rid of ISIS.
McCain’s rhetoric [for attacking ISIS] is particularly hypocritical in light of his trip to Syria in May of 2013 to discuss giving arms and support to Syrian rebels. One researcher noticed that one of the men meeting with McCain looks just like Ibrahim al-Badri (a.k.a. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader and commander of the Islamic State in Iraq, otherwise known as ISIS). Pictures tweeted by McCain himself show him talking with rebels including a man who matches al-Badri’s mugshot on Wikipedia before growing the prominent beard—a beard that, like bin-Laden’s, makes it easy for dumbed-down Americans to identify the terrorist figurehead (or look-alike as needed).
The ultimate US objective in Syria is to remove Bashar al Assad and topple his pro-Russian government so that Israel can finally get the green light to attack Iran without fear of Syrian missile retaliation. In some way the US is conniving to use the need to attack ISIS in Syria as a path toward controlling Syria and taking down Assad.
6:57 PM - Fear Mongering Lies in the Name of Jesus
The video I want to focus on is the one about guillotines made by an alleged Christian early this year, The Law has Passed: Killing American Christians by Guillotine. The first photo of a guillotine he shows is a piece of sculptured art that is no more operational than a photo of a guillotine. Later he makes a big deal about a Georgia state bill authorizing guillotines as the method of execution. The bill is almost 20 years old and went absolutely nowhere. He also mentions an alleged government stockpile of 30,000 guillotines. Again, more lies. Rumors of mass guillotines have been around for at least 20 years and I have yet to see any proof of even one that is real! There are plenty of other similar videos attempting to scare people with guillotine lies. Does anybody really take this seriously?
Back at the first website are other videos alleging Sharia Law is soon to be a serious threat in America. Perhaps, but only in localized areas like Detroit where Muslims congregate in large numbers. In the first place why do radical Muslims need guillotines? They are perfectly capable of beheading with a sword. And most importantly is the fact that there are so few Muslims in America that a takeover is impossible, especially considering how armed to the teeth Americans are. This government allowing the mass influx of Mexicans and Sharia Law somehow doesn't seem a logical mix to me.
I don't think anybody fully knows the role of Islam in the NWO. Some think the NWO will be Muslim. Others think radical Islam will be annihilated with accepted Islam, Christianity, and Judaism all combined into the NWO religion, along with lesser religions. In any case it does absolutely no good to be spreading provable lies in the name of Jesus. Let the reader and viewer beware.
6:21 PM - The Only Safeguard Against Spiritual Deception
Trustworthy men who teach biblical truths that have stood the test of time from the early Church are few in number but they are still around and of course those that have gone home have left us with abundant reading material. Truly there is nothing new under the sun but you wouldn't know that from listening to so many false teachers that are a dime a dozen these days.

6:46 PM - Pentecostal Scandals
Enlarged and Updated August 26, 2014
I know from personal experience that not all Pentecostals or Charismatics live scandalous lives. I was led to Christ in 1973 by an old-line Pentecostal who was a godly man, and I thank the Lord for the compassion he showed to this former "hippy" and the Biblical wisdom that he exercised in dealing with me.
At the same time, from its inception at the turn of the 20th century, the Pentecostal movement has been absolutely rife with moral and doctrinal scandals and ridiculous claims.

UN BAJID KANDALA REFUGEE CAMP, Northern Iraq — It looks like a scene out of the Bible — a modern-day exodus.
"I was there when ISIS came and shot one girl with a bullet in the head because they told her to convert. She refused and they killed her," Tasim recalled.
"We wait for the mercy of God and people like you to be protected from the evil men," Guli said.
They're also asking for the United States and the West to help.
"My request for all the believers in America and all over the world in all the church[es] [is] to pray for these people," Guli said.

“Come and See”
In Defense of the Faith
by Pete Garcia
I wonder why so many who claim to be Christian (presumably loving Christ), have such hostility towards the idea that Christ will one day return for His Bride before the coming seven year period known as ‘The Day of the Lord'.
Some of the visceral comments you will find, come not from the atheist or the Christian skeptic crowd, but come from other Christians. Most unbelievers equate God to the ‘Flying Spaghetti Monster' and reserve sarcasm for all eschatological views fairly equally. But it's the ‘christian', particularly those of the Reformed/Covenantal/Hebrew Roots/Amillennial/Preterist/Pre-Wrath/Post-Trib crowd who really, really hate the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Even more hated still, is the Dispensationalist…Gasp!
As one who has often been at the receiving end of the blistering criticism, I am very cognizant of the fact, that most other eschatological views are at least tolerant of each other, yet remain united in their resolute intolerance towards the Pre-Trib view…, which is telling.
Although we aren’t saved by which Rapture view we hold too, we are either stunted or growing in how we mature as believers by which view we allow to filter our biblical worldview through. And although all the proof in the world will not convince those who obstinately hold to errant, eschatological views (the listed above), they will find out soon enough.
5:51 PM - Surviving Without Grocery Stores
It is possible to survive on foraging alone, provided one knows what to eat and what to leave alone. And to some extent it is even possible in cities. Lots of "weeds" are edible. And then there are all sorts of animals which is another subject entirely. The information below is very helpful for foraging plants.

Take dandelion, for instance. Who hasn’t tried to remove this hardy, universal weed from your yard? Yet it is really quite good both for food and medicine. The leaves are more nutritious than any lettuce and are not bitter if picked before the blossoms appear. Even the bitter summer leaves shouldn’t be shunned according to Steve Brill, who has a very useful website about common edible plants.
And that’s just one example. Consider wild cherries, berries and apples, watercress near streams, wild mushrooms (be careful, but don’t ignore this valuable category), and several edible leaves and lettuces. The PFAF (plants for a future) website catalogs over 20,000 edible plants in the world and has handy lists of edible plants sorted into links like “alternative food crops,” “winter salads,” edible roots, and even chocolate or salt substitutes.
Be sure and add a pocket guidebook of local edible (and poisonous) plants to your 72 hour kit or bug out bag. Here is a list of some geographic-specific guidebooks.

5:31 PM - Bible Verses and Quotes for Today
2 Timothy 4:3-4
"Dr. McGee, you're going to find out in your own ministry that there are a great many people more interested in Antichrist than they are in Christ."
Dr. Arno C. Gaebelein, former Methodist pastor and Bible teacher
"They want religious entertainment from Christian performers who will tickle their ears. We have a love for novelty in churches today: emotional movies, pageants, foot tapping music, colored lights, etc. The man who simply opens the Bible is rejected while the shallow religious entertainer becomes a celebrity. And verse 4 indicates that itching ears soon will become deaf ears as people turn away from the truth and believe man-made fables."
Dr. Warrren Wiersby, former pastor of Moody Church
All this is not true just in the churches but outside as well as so much religious garbage is spread over the internet in the name of truth by false teachers and false prophets.
2:51 PM - The Only Answer For Perilous Times
