The Dangers of Buddhism

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Now, it’s is estimated that about 6% of the World’s population are practicing Buddhist’s, which would equate to about 420 million people across the globe. The precise number of followers is difficult to ascertain because of Buddhism’s ability to assimilate itself into any culture and subsequently influence that culture’s underlying beliefs. Primarily Buddhism is practiced mostly in the nations of Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Laos, Taiwan, China, Japan, Mongolia, Tibet, Bhutan, Vietnam and finally Hong Kong. But friend it’s also on the rise within this nation and Europe. It influences more people than you think, especially within the celebrity circus. Let me give you a list now of some celebrities who practice Buddhism and you might be surprised at some of these:- These would include, Jennifer Anniston, Orlando Bloom, Angelina Jolie, John Cleese, Richard Gere, George Lucas, Courtney Love, Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brad Pitt, Oliver Stone, Steve Wynn, Mark Zuckerberg, Keanu Reeves, Steve Jobs, Patrick Duffy and finally Penelope Cruz.” – Pastor Carl

Why I believe in the pre-tribulation rapture

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The tribulation period is compared to the times of Noah and Lot by Jesus in Luke 17:26-28. The two circumstances that Noah and Lot shared were the removal of the righteous and subsequent judgment of the wicked in their dispensation. Noah and his family were removed in an Ark and Lott’s family escaped from Sodom and Gomorrah by angels after Abraham interceded for them. Abraham acted like a type of Christ in this instance because he petitioned God for the righteous in the city. This is called ‘setting a precedent’ in scripture or the ‘law of first mention.’ Once a precedent is set, God is not capricious friend and does not change His mind or the way he does things. These examples serve as a typology for the removal of the godly into safety and future judgments upon the ungodly, resulting in destruction.” – Pastor Carl

Margaret Sanger of Planned Parenthood

Here’s a teaching snippet:

The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members… is to kill it.”…Who on earth would say such a thing? And why?… Friend, I want you to pay close attention today because I’m going to share some information with you concerning the origin of Planned Parenthood and more precisely the woman who started it. You might get quite upset after hearing this message today because of the inflammatory rhetoric espoused by this ungodly woman I’m about to quote several times and the genocidal movement she spawned in the early part of the 20th century. Now, this lady is none other than Margaret Sanger and let me start out by quoting her from an interview right before her death, she said, “the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into this world who have disease, or no chance, being delinquents and prisoners…that to me is the greatest sin.” Well what does God have to say about children friend?…” – Pastor Carl

Are you a worrier?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Friend, let me ask you, are you a worrier? Do you worry often? Are you always thinking about tomorrow and regretting the things of yesterday?

Let me share some alarming facts and statistics with you about worry and the potential damage it might be having upon your psyche and ultimately your physical body. Now, according to the medical journals, 1 in 20 of us suffer from generalized anxiety order at some stage in our life and what’s interesting is that anxiety does not discriminate by age but can manifest itself in multiple ways in either gender or any race. In a recent study it found that as baby boomers get older, 66% worry about gaining weight, 30% worry about losing hair, 28% worry about getting facial wrinkles and 24% worry about getting gray hair. What’s not commonly known to most people however is the hormonal effect, worry can have on the body.” – Pastor Carl

The Coming One World Religion

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Friend there’s a venomous lie sown within the fabric of today’s’ society that all religions worship the same God and that Christ has revealed himself in many different religious forms to all cultures around the world.

Subsequently, the Global hatred and persecution for the true Christian faith is on the rise and even within this nation. Liberal leaders within groups such as the World Council of Churches even have the audacity to call evangelical activity of any kind, both ‘arrogant’ and ‘anti-cultural’, based on this false ecumenical premise, that all religions worship the same God. The truth is friend; all religions do NOT worship the same God. The only one and true God is Yahweh, whose earthly incarnation was his son Jesus Christ, who was also pre-incarnate and became the perfect living sacrifice, sent to redeem humanity from impending judgment and the everlasting fire to come.” – Pastor Carl

Are Catholics Christians?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“There are approximately 1.1 billion Catholics worldwide and I sincerely believe there are true believers in Christ that reside within its organization no doubt. Many of them love God and God loves them, but it’s the doctrines and leadership we will address today.

Did you know the term Catholic, comes from the Greek word “katholikos” which means ‘universal.’

Friend, the greatest threat to true Christianity today is the repression of biblical truth for the sake of unity but unfortunately this is the ecumenical path many churches have gone down, but not this church. The Papacy’s Vatican II Ecumenical Council in the mid 1960’s was where these heretical decrees toward ecumenicity were formulated.” – Pastor Carl

Faith and corresponding action: part 2

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Time and time again, we see countless examples in scripture of people talking action in accordance with their beliefs. This can work in both a negative and positive way. One of the most tragic occurrences of the negative way is revealed in Numbers 13 where the children of Israel were about to enter the Promised Land but their actions were not based on faith but fear. They gave an evil report back to God. An evil report is saying what they saw and heard instead of what God said about the situation. If we give in to fear, we will be overcome by our obstacles instead of us overcoming them.

Let’s read about it now in Numbers 13:30-32…
And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel

Friend, an evil report is one of fear… It looks at the circumstances and pronounces that God can do nothing. An evil report is repeatedly saying what the circumstances are saying instead of what God said about the topic. Fear causes us to shrink back and our God becomes very small… ”

Faith and confession

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“As believers, we are held to a higher standard of what comes out of our mouths because the words we use as Christians have more authority behind them than others. The tongue is very influential even though it is such a small member in relation to our entire body. In the case of the bridle of the horse and rudder of the ship, both of these are instruments of guidance. In other words, the tongue sets the course for our entire lives, even though it is such a small member and guides us to smoother waters or dangerous rocks.

Friends, chart a good course with your tongue. Starting today, let it guide you in the right places. Remember the tongue is not meant to be reactive but pro-active, we are to speak blessings over our lives in line with God’s word in order to see them manifest.”

What can shut down your faith?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“In the book of Titus it talks about our consciences being defiled and in 1 Timothy 4:2 it talks of searing the conscience.

A seared conscience didn’t start out that way, it was sensitive at first and receptive to God in its original state but once it became wounded, it gradually became callous. There’s an old saying, “hurting people hurt people”. In their wounded state they’re unable to heal themselves and their means of relief is to wound other people, which in turn is an attempt to make themselves feel better. This friend is a vicious cycle that only Jesus can break. Doesn’t the Bible say that Jesus came to heal the broken hearted (Luke 4:18)? Friend, it’s time to admit that there can be wounding in our lives that we need to let go of some stuff.”

Jesus: the forgiver and healer

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Colossians 1:19-22
19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled
22 In the body of his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:

Did you catch that, friend? We were reconciled to the Father by the precious blood of Jesus. Jesus was punished for us. Notice we are Holy, unblameable and unreproveable by what He did, not by what we did, so there is no boasting then on our part but by the law of faith we can boast on what Christ did for us.”
