Call To Discernment

Calling Christians to Biblical Christianity. Christians must have discernment in all areas of life in this end time of deception, realizing also that American leadership of both political parties are leading us into the New World Order of the coming antichrist. Do not be conformed to this world. Rom. 12:2. Expose the deeds of darkness. Eph. 5:11. "He that is not zealous against error, is not likely to be zealous for truth." J.C.

8:37 AM - Beware of the Fear Mongers

There are many people today who are exploitive, trying to make money through the use of fear-mongering. It bothers me. They're greedy and want your money, period. I'm sick of hearing charlatans talk about the coming empty grocery store shelves, trying to make a buck by selling storable foods. I'm sick of hearing merchants stress the dire importance of buying gold and silver for security. They make it sound like you can't live without gold, storable foods, and all the other survival gimmicks they're pushing.

That's not what the Bible teaches. Jesus plainly taught that the heathen world WORRIES about what they are going to eat, drink, and wear. You had better take heed to what the Lord Jesus Christ said in Luke 12:15,20...

Luke 12:15 and 20, "And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. ... But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?"

Jesus immediately follows this warning about the foolish rich man by telling us not to worry about earthly provisions, because God will provide for us. It is a sin to worry about what we will eat, drink, and wear tomorrow. You can't trust God and worry at the same time.

Certainly, there is a healthy concern that is justified, planning for emergencies and being diligent to plan ahead; however, I see a lot of scare-mongering and fear-mongering today, ridiculously so, causing people to unreasonably worry. If you are more concerned about your financial future than you are about winning souls to Jesus Christ, then you are not right with God. If you are more concerned about storing food and ammunition than you are about searching the Scriptures and sinning less, then you are not right with God.
