The Dangers of Socialism

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“In this podcast we will discuss the ever present and pervasive dangers of Socialism in our culture. Now I’m pretty sure most of you have heard of Karl Marx, the so called ‘father of Marxism’ also coined as ‘Communism’ or ‘Socialism’ in today’s dialect. But did you know that Karl Marx was a ‘God hater’ and his main aim was to usurp the moral and economic foundations of society, with a pamphlet called the ‘Communist Manifesto?’ Now, Karl Marx was born in Trier, Germany on May 5th 1818 and later died in London, England in March of 1883. His father was a successful lawyer and was devoted to the teachings of Voltaire and Kant. Karl was the oldest surviving boy of nine children and of Jewish descent. What is not commonly known; is that Karl Marx was a professing Christian in his youth and his first book was entitled, The Union of the Faithful with Christ. However beginning in his early 20’s a very sharp ‘U-turn’ was made by Marx in his theological outlook, to the point of abandoning his Christian faith and later embracing full scale Atheism. Proof of his recantation was later revealed in several of his personal poems where he expressed his disdain for almighty God…Cleary any love that Marx had for the Lord Jesus Christ was later turned to repulsion and his Communist Manifesto was written in defiance of his previously held Judeo-Christian values.17″ – Pastor Carl

Disturbing Trends

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“This podcast will review some of the most disturbing trends in our society today. Now whenever we desire to predict the future in science, engineering or culture for that matter, we often observe ‘trends.’ If we look that word ‘trend’ up in the dictionary, it means ‘to veer in a new direction,’ or ‘to extend in a general direction,’…But friend, are you not simply alarmed at some of the trends we see in culture today? Even in the past decade, seemingly the moral restraints have been ‘cast off’ and we’re headed in a direction that can only end up in a societal car wreck, if we don’t put the brakes on fast. There are trends in the moral realm, in the economy, in the weather, in fashion, disease, crime, social media, geopolitics, consumer spending, education, and a whole host of others that go to make up the very fabric of our existence. One of the trends I see unfortunately is an ‘apostasy’ or ‘moving away from core values’ upon which most Christian denominations were founded and our Judeo-Christian society as a whole. I believe this to be in direct correlation with the abandonment of God’s word which is the underlying foundation of our society. Right now, we are now reaping the seeds sown in the 1960’s in particular, when prayer was taken out of schools in tandem with the explosion of the sex, drugs and rock n ‘roll culture.” – Pastor Carl

Hold Old is the Earth?

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“In this podcast, we will discuss one of those golden nuggets, (just like the dinosaurs) that sometimes calls the Christian faith into question and that is, “what exactly is the age of the earth upon which we stand?” …Now traditional Christians will state firmly that the earth was created in six days and any suggestion to the contrary, is an apostate view. And of course when you look at the creation account of ‘this current world,’ it was completed in six literal days as the bible says (more on this current world shortly)… Now according to scientists, the earth is 4.5 billion years old, based on radiometric data fragments from the ‘Canyon Diablo iron meteorite’ but they also warn they could be off by plus or minus 50 million years, so no big deal! Why not plus or minus 1 billion?! The truth is, no-one was there to see creation when it occurred, so no-one really knows how old the earth really is! Now, what got my attention when I first became a believer in Christ; is God’s command to Adam and Eve to ‘replenish’ the earth. If you’ll recall, God commanded Adam and Eve to replenish the earth in Gen 1:28, which infers they were ‘repopulating’ an earth that was once inhabited in a prior timeframe, lets read this passage now…” – Pastor Carl

The Good Shepherd – John Chapter 10

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Jesus is described as the ‘Good Shepherd’ because He cares for the sheep. In scripture we are a part of His sheepfold and are identified as ‘sheep.’ In contrast, the unbelievers are described as goats. Sheep unfortunately are not the smartest animals in the world. They’re unable to defend themselves from predators and often stray into pastures that contain poisonous shrubs. The Good Shepherd watches over His vulnerable sheep and comes to their rescue at opportune times when ravenous wolves come near or when they’re about to eat the wrong food. Because of these threats the sheep (that’s us) must become intimately acquainted with the voice of the Good Shepherd in order to avoid danger. If we don’t, then we could become susceptible to ‘thieves’ or even the ‘false doctrines’ that wolves often bring. I urge you today to become acquainted with the Good Shepherd, the author of ‘abundant life.'” – Pastor Carl

Daniel’s 70th Week

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Now regarding this strange term, ‘Daniels 70th week,’ what on earth does it all mean? Well let’s remind ourselves of a bit of history. Remember when Israel fell to disobedience and was later exiled by the Babylonian Empire? Few realize, this exile was forewarned by the prophets Jeremiah and Isaiah. Our God is a merciful God and He gives us plenty of warning when He’s going to judge us. Israel unfortunately had repeatedly forsaken their God and whenever anyone does so, only negative consequences can ensue. So what did the prophet Daniel do when he realized these prophecies of Jeremiah and Isaiah, were about to come to pass? He started to pray, as anyone would and basically Daniel chapter nine documents Daniels travail and intercessory prayer for his beloved but rebellious nation of Israel. One of the answers the Lord provided Daniel from His throne was the precise day the Messiah would be ‘cut off’ or crucified. Do you want to find out that day? If so, stay tuned and I will reveal Daniels accurate prophecies of the coming Messiah.” – Pastor Carl

Daniel Chapter 8 – ‘Antiochus Epiphanes’

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Today we’ll continue our study with Daniel chapter 8 specifically. Now, because of the accuracy of Daniel’s visions coming to pass, it has caused several liberals scholars to claim the Book of Daniel is a complete forgery. They claim it was written in about the second century AD because they postulate anyone accurately predicting future world empires is simply impossible! However, God sealed up a time capsule to prove the Book of Daniel to be accurate by allowing the ‘Qumran’ or ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ to be discovered in 1946. In these scrolls, a complete copy of the Book of Daniel was found, containing the very predictions that exactly match the writings of Daniel, found within the pages of our King James Bible. This threw a ‘wrench in the works’ and liberal scholars had no defense against this monumental discovery of historically accurate parchments, proving once and for all, the prophecies of Daniel in the 6th century BC, not only came to pass exactly as he predicted but the sequence of empires was precise also. ” – Pastor Carl

The Dangers of Fornication

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The Lexham Cultural Dictionary defines ‘Fornication’ this way, “the practice of engaging in immoral sexual activity, but especially that which is outside the bounds of a marriage covenant.” Its general meaning refers to ‘any’ and ‘every’ kind of sexual intercourse except between a husband and wife. In other words, any form of sexual activity outside of the marriage covenant is labeled as ‘fornication’ and therefore ‘immoral’ according to the Holy Bible. If you’re a Christian listening to this broadcast, you shouldn’t be engaging in or practicing fornication. If you are, then you’re leaving the door wide open for the devil to set up camp in your life (Eph 4:27). Few realize that when you make love to someone, you’re joining your very soul to that person. If sex is performed outside the sanctity of the marriage covenant, then you’re leaving yourself wide open to relentless spiritual.” – Pastor Carl

The True Vine

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Are you aware of the pruning mechanism that occurs in your life? John Chapter fifteen reveals a powerful illustration in which God the Father is revealed as the ‘husbandmen’ or ‘cultivator.’ God desires fruit from you, whether you realize it or not. This fruit takes time to grow. In this chapter of the Gospels we learn about our role as a ‘branch’ in God’s tree. Jesus is ‘the vine’ to which we ‘branches’ must remain attached. If we are to bear fruit on a continual basis in our lives, we must voluntarily choose to be attached to Christ’s vine. Once we’re attached, His word must abide within us. Once these two criteria are met, only then can the Father harvest the fruit that He so desires. The Father ‘prunes’ us occasionally to bear more fruit down the road. We all know the pruning process isn’t necessarily comfortable but it’s requisite and for our benefit. We are to be fruit bearers and this powerful chapter describes the process that we are all subject to, on an ongoing basis.” – Pastor Carl

The Beasts of Daniel Chapter 7

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“The beasts of this chapter represent various brutal World empires that cruelly ravaged the people of God. That’s why these empires are in the form of a ‘beast’ which is a lower being, exhibiting the savagery of an animal and the harsh treatment of God’s people. The first beast was of course Babylon, symbolic of the ‘lion,’ which had Eagle’s wings. If you look at the symbol of Babylon, a lion is without doubt the national symbol of this nation. This first beast is a ‘hybrid,’ having traits of both lion and eagle. The lion of course, is the king of the animal kingdom and the eagle being the head of the bird kingdom. This truly reflects Babylon which was the head of all empires at the time. Notice this animal had its two wings ‘plucked’ and a ‘man’s heart’ was given to it. The plucking of the wings refers to the insanity that King Nebuchadnezzar exhibited and the subsequent humbling he experienced at God’s hand. After spending several years living in the wilderness, the king was eventually converted to Christ and His heart changed; an apt description of a ‘beast’ receiving a ‘man’s heart.'” – Pastor Carl

Surveillance Society

Here’s a teaching snippet:

“Like it or not; you are living in a surveillance society and one that you may not be even aware of. Someone once said, that “privacy is the foundation of a free society,” and if that’s a true statement (and I believe it is), then our society is rapidly losing its freedom and showing no signs of abating. Freedom is of course the basis of all democratic societies which are founded upon Judeo-Christian principles. These principles stem from the Torah, the book of Isaiah, the book of Proverbs and the Gospels. When George Orwell penned his now infamous novel of a coming technocratic dystopia in sharp contrast to the statues of true democracy, it was a society in which ‘everyone’ and ‘everything’ was monitored on a continual basis. But little did Orwell know that almost 68 years after he wrote the novel, ‘1984’, his envisioned technocracy would be well on its way to completion in our present day and age. The cold hard truth is that right now, as George stated, “Big Brother truly is watching you” and video cameras literally capture our every move, just as they did in Orwell’s sinister novel. Even your credit cards have recently had RFID chips installed in them and now provide a far greater level of intrusion via increased surveillance sophistication, unlike the credit card companies of yesteryear.” – Pastor Carl
