Watch this first:

This short clip is classic old fashioned Pentecostal preaching (from the movie the Apostle):

Now watch this – it is priceless:

So do you think he might grow up to become a Pentecostal preacher?

BTW if you haven never seen the movie “The Apostle” it is one of Robert Duvall’s greatest acting performances –  rent it – Duvall is so convincing that whether your a Pentecostal or not you might begin to think that Duvall is actually the real thing!

America’s Coming Fiscal Tsunami


Patrick Henry on “Christian” America

“It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

“The Bible is worth all the other books which have ever been printed.”

Patrick Henry

Postmillenialism Simplified

This is Part 3 (3 of 25) from the DVD “The Beast of Revelation: IDENTIFIED” produced by JC Rogers of The Forerunner.com.

I encourage you to watch the rest of it here (the DVD is available for purchase here) – This DVD is so convincing that it became instrumental in turning our church from pessimistic premillennialism to optimistic postmillenialism!

The Antithesis and “Common Cooperation” Theology

There is a lot of talk today of Abraham Kuyper’s “common grace theology” in the evangelical world today – even men like Rick Warren and many of the Emergents have gotten on the “Kuyperian” bandwagon lately.

As I have listened to these folks, I have noticed a subtle difference between their view of “common grace” and Kuyper’s.

For a while I have been trying to put my finger on exacly what the differnce is and I have come to the conclusion that what they lack is the doctrine of “the Antithesis”.

Without Kuyper’s theology of “the antithesis” his “common grace” theology has metastasized into a doctrine of “common cooperation”. This metastasized doctrine preaches cooperation with the unbelieving world for the “common good” of mankind… and this being done in the name of advancing the kingdom of God.

I believe this metastasized “common grace cooperation” theology is largely contributing to a dialectical assimilation of the contemporary Church into the modern pagan culture and an adoption of its ethical values, values like radical egalitarianism, socialism, and environmentalism. This hybridization of biblical ethics and modern pagan ethics will eventually lead the Contemporary Church to abandon or minimalize true biblical ethics in favor of pagan ones…

A few weeks ago I listened to a couple of very good messages from the Kuyper Foundation. These messages I believe have helped me clear up a lot of the differences between the two theologies and I higly recommend them to you.

Belloc on the Re-emergence of Islam

It has always seemed to me possible, and even probable, that there would be a resurrection of Islam and that our sons or our grandsons would see the renewal of that tremendous struggle between Christian culture and for what has been for more than a thousand years its greatest opponent…

“the suggestion that Islam may re-arise sounds fantastic – but this is only because men are always powerfully affected by the immediate past: – one might say that they are blinded by it…

But not so very long ago, less than a hundred years before the Declaration of Independence…  Vienna, as we saw, was almost taken and only saved by the Christian army under the command of the King of Poland on a date that ought to be among the most famous in history  –  September 11, 1683.
