On Shai’s most recent album, “Lyrical Theology Part 1: Theology” he has a song devoted to False Teachers. This video gives a little background into why he felt it was important to address such a topic.

Listen to the song below

Everyday children and young people are exposed to pornographic and offensive images online. We think children should have the right to surf the internet safely.

Internet service providers could solve the problem by blocking pornography at network level whilst giving adults a choice to ‘opt-in’ to this content.

Written exclusively for the Safetynet campaign, MOBO award winning Gospel rapper Jahaziel shares his testimony, through song, of his early exposure to pornography and the subsequent effects it had on his views of women, his relationships and even his marriage at one point. ‘Theft of my Innocence’, produced by Grammy nominated Producer Steven Abramsamadu ,is a powerful account of how Jahaziel overcame his struggle in this area and found freedom through Jesus Christ. Jahaziel aims to encourage young people to speak out on this issue and to inspire them to overcome their struggles and live a pure life.

There has been quite a lot of talk about gay marriages lately on both sides of the pond. First here in the UK, the Prime Minister, David Cameron of the Conservative party plans to legalise same-sex marriage. In his words, he said,

‘We’re consulting on legalising gay marriage. To anyone who has reservations, I say: Yes, it’s about equality, but it’s also about something else: commitment. ‘Conservatives believe in the ties that bind us; that society is stronger when we make vows to each other and support each other. So I don’t support gay marriage despite being a Conservative. I support gay marriage because I’m a Conservative.

This is one of the reasons whyI am encouraging UK residents to sign the petition. Maybe its just me but I’m sure this was not part of the Conservative’s manifesto when they campaigned to govern the country.

Then over in America, Kirk cameron caused a big storm with his interview with Piers Morgan. See the video below

After that interview, Kirk got a taster of what Jesus felt and that was to be hated by the world for his views and for standing up for righteousness. To get a taster, I saw this discussion.

The automatic assumption from listening to this is that because the majority of people do not agree with Kirk, that it makes what he said wrong. But as I said in this postthe vast majority of people in this world are NOT christians even if they profess that they are and the vast majority of people are against Christ and they will not be going to heaven

So what can we learn from this?

That if we want to know the definition of something, we cannot argue with the source. If Bill Gates says that an operating system is Windows 7, who am I to tell him that it is not and it is Windows 8? No-one could tell Leonardo da Vinci that the Mona Lisa was actually a picture of his sister. In the same way, God was the one who instituted marriage in the beginning. His definition was from the beginning and is now one man + one woman for life. I did not create marriage and you did not create marriage so none of us have the right to redefine it. Yet man in his arrogance think that we can usurp God’s authority and change the meaning

The bible makes it clear that God’s wrath (not his full wrath) has been revealed which is evident in our world today. How do I know? Romans 1:18,24-28  tells us

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth……….

24 …………..Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

Three times it states that God has basically ‘left them to it’ and ‘gave them up’ because of their insistent desire to follow their sinful passions.

As well as ‘aiming for the web’ by signing petitions and trying to change laws, which is not a bad thing in itself, we must endevour to ‘aim for the spider’. At the root cause is man’s sinful heart which can only truly be transformed by the power of the gospel and that is what we as Christians must proclaim from the rooftops. That without Christ, man is hopeless, even in a hetrosexual marriage.

Day 5 of Sex : Homosexual Questions Uncovered | Passion for Christ Movement – P4CM.com

As per my About Me section, when I started this blog, the main reason is, if I am honest is that I was fed up of just going with the flow of what had become the norm in a lot of Christendom and wanted to get things off my chest. Most christians that I knew (including me) had swallowed the health and wealth prosperity gospel. Watching some of the preachers on TBN and God TV such as Creflo Dollar and Benny Hinn without REALLY lining up what they said with correct interpretation of scripture. Some of these (and our) pastors were twisting scripture but because it was the norm, we were deceived into thinking that because everyone was saying it and because these were respected leaders, it must be true.

Over the past few years, I have been encouraged to know that many people are beginning to question what they have been fed. However, many think that they are saved but in reality are actually self-deceived because they are blinded by false promises constantly talking about blessings, breakthrough and/or divine favour. A classic example can be seen in the video below

My message to you is this. Examine your motives for staying where you are. Are you TRULY being fed and growing spriritually or are you suffering spritually and just staying because of friends or because of loyalty to your church and/or your pastor even though they may not be preaching the gospel or may not be righly dividing scripture?  I was in that position once when I stayed out of loyalty, not because of a longing for correct use of scripture. I really depended on ‘Christian’ TV for my food. Obviously, each case will be different and it maybe that some pastors are approachable with your concerns and will seriously listen to you. In my own personal experience though, those occasions are rare. Click here and here for reasons why you should or shouldnt leave your church and please get some wise godly counsel but please don’t stay out of loyalty alone

UPDATE: When I started to write this post it was basically about what I have stated above and then I came across a few things this week which made me realise that blind loyalty comes in different forms. First check out the video below of Lexi interviewing Bishop Oliver Clyde Allen and First Gentleman (thats right, not Lady but Gentleman) Rashad. This is an example of what happens when people hold a low view of scripture and hold their opinions higher.

HT: I’m Speaking Truth

The people are all willing to ignore the explicit commands of scripture to justify their sins and you can see how their loyalty to the ‘bishop’ is as a result of this. Now I have no problems with people struggling with their sins, no matter what form it takes, whether it be homosexual sins or hetrosexual sins, but I do have a problem when people try to justify it as if God has given it the green light. NEWSFLASH: It is NOT OK.

24Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. (Romans 1:24-27)

Then today I came across this news story on Sky News

At least six people have dies in Britain after being told they had been healed of HIV and could stop taking their medication, Sky News has discovered

There is evidence evangelical churches in London, Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow are claiming to cure HIV through God.

Sky sent three undercover reporters to the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), which is based in Southwark, south London.

To tell an HIV sufferer that they do not need to take their medication anymore is nothing less than evil and deceptive (see my post Derren Brown: Miracles for Sale). Now this church follows the false teacher T B Joshua and I do not have time to go into this man but you can google his name. Many people follow this man blindly as if he can do no wrong without lining up what he says with scripture

When peoples lives are being wrecked by ministries like this, I will not stay silent and will sound the alarm. Who knows? It may save a life

DONT BE BLINDED BY YOUR LOYALTY

Believe it or not, approximately 2-3 million Americans exhibit some type of sel-abusive behavior. 1 out of every 200 U.S. girls between the age of 13 and 19 years old cut themselves regularly.  Watch as 16 year Ashley shares how God delivered her from cutting herself through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Enock

One thing that I have learnt in this christian life is that we are not immuned to heartache, trials, tribulations and we will go through exactly the same things that non christians go through. Tomorrow is not promised, not even for christians.

As a Cross Movement fan from the beginning, I was saddened to hear the other day of the death of former member, Enock. The CMR statement reads as follows:

It’s with great sorrow that we must inform you of the passing of our beloved brother Juan James aka “Enock” – one of the co-founders of Christian rap group The Cross Movement. His passing occurred Saturday morning, October 17, 2009 of an apparent but, yet still unconfirmed heart attack.It is impossible to express our sadness as words fail our emotions and sentiments.Our prayers and loving support go out to his entire family and the Cross Movement family as a whole.Our greatest joy in this time of mourning is that he knows his God intimately and is in His presence celebrating our Lord.As our Lord lives, so does “Nock.” As details regarding his going home service are made available, we will keep you informed.Please pray with us, mourn with us, and celebrate with us.We’ve lost our brother presently but, the Lord is with his son Juan eternally.So you preceded us to the Lord Nock, we’ll proceed with the representin’… see you soon bro.
Romans 8: 35-38
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? As it is written: “For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (NIV).

James is heard on the CDs Heaven’s Mentality, House of Representatives and Human Emergency. In 2001, he relocated to Houston to work on his solo album, AWEthentic, with Much Luvv Records.

“Please pray with us, mourn with us, and celebrate with us,” Cross Movement said. “We’ve lost our brother presently, but the Lord is with his son Juan eternally. So you preceded us to the Lord Nock. We’ll proceed with the representin’ … see you soon bro.”

James is survived by his wife, Natalie, and his four children: Chavonna, 17; Juan Jr., 11; Genesis, 9; and Jana, 4.
