Bill Gothard Examined If we were to examine the teachings of Bill Gothard, we would recognize and realize that they are legalistic. While IBLP emphasizes morality and orderliness in a time of permissiveness, it does so to an excessive extent, thereby being very legalistic.
While we must practice discipline in the ministry, we must avoid going to the extent of behavior modification, which is just another name for legalism.
The Inquisition: Roman Catholic Terrorism It is rather accurate to refer to the Inquisition as Roman Catholic terrorism since it terrorized much of Europe and the world by imposing popery through coercive means. From the very beginning, the Jesuit society was started by Ignatius of Loyola as an attack on the Protestant Reformation.
This shows that popery has never given up its aggressive assault, not just on the Protestant Reformation and Biblical Truth, but on liberty of the conscience as well.
Olympic Medals in Vanity If there is one thing symbolized by Olympic medals and other prestigious accolades in the athletic echelon, they all show empty vanity. This sermon reveals the fact that the Olympics is full of empty vanity.
An indictment against the rebellious pope This sermon is an indictment against the rebellious pope. Then again, the papacy has always been about rebellion against the Lord since its very inception. The Vatican is even more dangerous now with a Jesuit pope.
The popes, past, present, and future, have reflected their rebellion against the Lord by adding sacraments to salvation, the construction and worship of graven images of supposedly saintly figures, and so forth.
The demise of Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul II show the foolishness of Roman Catholicism, aka popery.
The fact of the matter is that every pope has been/and is rebellious from the very beginning. The papacy has been in rebellion against The Lord since its inception. The popes, past, present, and future, have reflected their rebellion to the Lord through graven images of Mary and the saints as well as by their propagation of a false gospel of sacramental salvation, a type of works salvation.
It is therefore accurate to say that all popes are rebels.
Gaia Movement: Not Innocent Once again, people have a tendency to put pagan religions on a pedestal, including Earth worship, not taking into account the brutality of pagan cultures around the world. Even secular historical sources are not in denial of the brutality of pagan cultures.
Of course, the real reason why pagan religions were brutal is because of its contact with demonic spirits. It appears that modern society has rejected the Bible in favor of reviving the ancient fertility religions which Jehovah has always condemned.
Billy Graham: Worldly Church Pastor Never forget what Charles Spurgeon would say about the majority of today's churches in the world, including that of America.
"That very church which the world likes best is sure to be that which God abhors."
In other words, if the world favors that very church, God abhors it. Indeed, that very church which the world likes best includes parachurch ministries like the BGEA, worldly Contemporary churches like the Willow Creek and Calvary Chapel and so many others.
Disney: Marketing Occult Mythology Since its inception, the Walt Disney Company has been marketing occult mythology. This is not a coincidence since Walt Disney (5 December, 1901-15 December, 1966) was heavily involved in the occult himself.
As of now, Disney now owns Lucasfilm (the company known for producing the mythical Star Wars Universe) as well as the mythological Marvel Comics pantheon (the collective of false gods known as superheroes and supervillains). Could this mean that the Disney Company is conditioning people into being empowered by the pantheistic energy known as "the force" of the mythical Star Wars Universe as well as the idolatrous hero worship of Marvel Comics superheroes?
Not only that, but the many false gods of the Marvel Comics pantheon are associated with sexual sins. The sexual sins of the Marvel Comics superheroes and supervillains, especially the female ones, are evident in the attire of Black Widow with her skintight leather catsuit, Madame Hydra, Emma Frost, and so many others.
This sermon shows why the Disney Company, though renowned for its artistic talent, is characterized by the spiritual realm of the occult.
Disney: Occultism in Art This sermon clearly shows why the Disney Company is marketing the occult as a form of art. While the many works of art produced by Disney like Around The World In 80 Days may contain an astounding music score, it does not change the fact that Disney produces works of art rooted in the spiritual realm of the occult.
Of course, the works of art produced by Disney promote the assumption that the so-called "good occult powers" defeat the blatantly bad occult powers. The Biblical reality is that both the so-called "good occult" and bad occult are both evil in The Sight of The Lord. This is why the fantasy tales produced by Disney confuse people's understanding of spiritual warfare.
Even in today's evangelical churches, evangelicals are expressing their attraction to Disney villains known for practicing black magic like Jafar and Maleficent. The only way one can practice magic, both black and white, is by becoming demon possessed.
Remember Deuteronomy 18:10-12 in regards to the spiritual realm of the occult and why it is condemned by Jehovah (The Lord's Name in Old Testament Hebrew).
Superheroes: Occult Icons This sermon reveals the esoteric and occult connection between superheroes and supervillains. In fact, many comic book writers like Alan Moore and Grant Morrison write superhero comics while channeling demonic spirits. While many dismiss this, the occult is evident in the writings and art of superhero comics. Not to mention that many superheroes and supervillains like Dr. Fate, Doctor Strange, Circe, and Amora the Enchantress are practitioners of the occult. Remember Deuteronomy 18:10-12.
Jesuits: Die-Hard Papists A sermon exposing the idolatrous, but die-hard loyalty to the pope shown by the diabolical Jesuits. The real issue at heat is that these Jesuits and the pope are really loyal to Satan himself.
Trump: Making America Sinfully Proud Again Donald Trump's presidential slogan, which claims "Make America Great Again," is in reality, making American sinfully proud again. The fact is that no nation in the world is a great nation, even though America is known for being a free democratic nation. The only way to "make America great again" is by increasing its sinful pride. If we focus only on America, and not other nations, we lose sight of The Great Commission.
An insightful sermon! This sermon is helpful because it shows that rock music and its many variants, like rap, country, pop, and soul, destroys those involved in it. The fact that Mary Christine Brockert (5 March 1956, - 26 December 2010), known as Teena Marie, died at the age of 54 on 26 December, 2010 shows why rock music destroyed her life as well as those of other musicians.
Even secular sources have cited rock music as destructive. The question is, if secular sources can see the inherent dangers of rock music, why can't the evangelical churches of today? The answer is because today's evangelical churches are promoting rock music.
The push for a one world religion It is very apparent that the World Council of Churches and the Vatican are pushing towards a one world religion headed by the Antichrist. The push for a one world religion is seen in that the Vatican has installed Roman Catholic cathedrals in every major city and corner of the world, even in places where the Roman Catholic demographics compose a small minority. These Roman Catholic cathedrals around the world are uniting the masses into worshiping the Antichrist. Remember Revelation 13 and Revelation 17.
God: Eliminator of all popes When Pope John Paul II passed away on 2 April, 2005, it was a sign that God intended on eliminating the pope. God's Wrath will wax hot on the blasphemous pope for propagating a false gospel of sacramental salvation to every major corner of the Earth as well as blasphemously carrying the title of Holy Father and His Holiness. Since The Psalmist said that he hates the enemies of The Lord with perfect hatred and counting them as his enemies in Psalm 139:22, we too must hate the pope with perfect hatred, counting that pope as our enemy. The bottom line is that God hates the pope and his blasphemous base of operations called the Vatican. It wasn't just septic shock and disease that claimed the life of Pope John Paul II. It was The Righteous Wrath of God that did, sending Pope John Paul II into eternal punishment in Hell. Someday, Pope John Paul II and every other pope will be judged at the Great White Throne and be punished with an eternity in the Lake of Fire.
The pope: usurper from the beginning This sermon shows why every pope is a usurper. The pope is a usurper in that he blasphemously assumes the titles of "Holy Father" and "His Holiness". The fact is that every pope from the first to the last has been preparing the world for the reign of the Antichrist. Of course, the Antichrist will be a usurper as well. We know that the Antichrist attempts to usurp the place of Jesus Christ since Antichrist means in place of Christ. Of course, every pope as well as the Antichrist will have their part in the Lake of Fire.
