Jeremiah Johnson wrote:
Ecumenism is not true unity. It’s a lie agreed upon—one that inoculates lost souls to the life-transforming truth of the gospel.

And as the world becomes increasingly pluralistic, believers need to be committed to protecting the purity of the gospel, resisting the world’s urging to mix it with error. We need to keep clear in our minds the black and white distinction between truth and error, and not succumb to the influence of an increasingly gray world. Here’s how John MacArthur describes the mindset believers need to foster:

"Christians preach an exclusive Christ in an inclusive age. Because of that, we are often accused of being narrow-minded, even intolerant. Many paths, it is said, lead to the top of the mountain of religious enlightenment. How dare we insist that ours is the only one? In reality, however, there are only two religious paths: the broad way of works salvation leading to destruction, and the narrow way of faith in the only Savior leading to eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). Religious people are on either one or the other."---John MacArthur

Those who avoid engaging in the media might say that the news makes them anxious or depressed, knowing humanity’s depravity has crippled possible perfection. But the Christian who understands both the fallen nature of humankind and our ultimate hope in things unseen will be better able to combat discouragement. We should not gloat in being uninformed, since we are called to be shrewd, not to be zealous without knowledge (Matt. 10:16; Prov. 19:2). Instead, we can look for multiple accounts to verify and advance the truth of a claim (Deut. 19:15; 1 Tim. 5:19).

The discerning reader can check to see whether a particular media report quotes several sources and attempts to capture all sides. The thorough reader will read a wide variety of sources from different persuasions to uncover nuances in the news. The wise reader will remember that we serve a powerful God who provides us hope as we watch a fallen world’s history unfold.

Sinclair Ferguson wrote:
Most of us doubtless want to distance ourselves from what might be regarded as “the lunatic fringe” of contemporary Christianity. We are on our guard against being led astray by false teachers. But there is more to discernment than this. True discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong; it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary, the essential from the indifferent, and the permanent from the transient. And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better, and even between the better and the best.

Thus, discernment is like the physical senses; to some it is given in unusual measure as a special grace gift (1 Cor. 12:10), but some measure of it is essential for us all and must be constantly nourished. The Christian must take care to develop his “sixth sense” of spiritual discernment. This is why the psalmist prays, “Teach me good judgment and knowledge” (Ps. 119:66).

Good advice, and so is this,

Sarah Bailey wrote:
It’s no secret that many Christians harbor deep skepticism of the “liberal media elite.” Some have been burned by the media, noting unfair or unfriendly coverage from the past. “I never just accept what newspapers say about people. I’ve seen them get facts, quotes, and reasons wrong far too many times,” California pastor Rick Warren wrote on Twitter earlier this year. Or, as popular blogger Jon Acuff has suggested, Christians tend to treat the secular media as though it were Satan’s newspaper....
But carrying an unhealthy cynicism toward the media can rattle our sense that there is indeed knowable truth. Instead, the savvy Christian should seek to gather several pieces of information and ideas before filtering them through what he or she knows to be true. We can look to media accounts to begin to understand general revelation, God’s providential work manifested in the world around us....

Ivan, I picked out the portions of the article that I thought were true. Now you can point out why they aren't? But the above article - by a woman - should be a guide to you, or ask your wife.

Pastorette lbug, yes people who cannot discern the truth from fiction should just avoid everything. I gave the portions of the article that I liked. I wish you liked the part that the new Calvinists have about the position of women!

Remember, gentlemen, you need a woman to tell you what to read and how to think! Now, I have used Catholic sources, not only liberal Christian sources, but sometimes even atheist ones if they serve the purpose of getting the information out. Oh, and horror forbid! I also use Jewish sources too. But, oops, I forgot you men need women to tell you what to read and what to think!

I don't mind lbug giving that warning. I just wish she would give warnings about conservative sources that spew nonsense.

So, lbug, keep us on our toes.

Gabrielle Levy and Alan Neuhauser wrote:
The guidance effectively fulfills an executive order that Trump signed May 4 directing Sessions to provide an interpretation of "religious liberty protections in federal law." Senior Justice Department officials, speaking at a background briefing ahead of Friday's announcement, emphasized that the documents do not change any existing policies.

"The guidance does not create or authorize the creation of any new protections for religious liberty. The guidance simply summarizes the state of the law as it exists today," a senior department official told reporters at a background briefing Friday.

The guidance, though, does appear to lay groundwork for mounting a defense against lawsuits that are all but certain challenge decisions by federal agencies – like the one announced by HHS Friday...

I suppose most lawsuits won't be heard in court until next year. it should be a very profitable year for lawyers.

Power Structures

Calvinista power structures are typically based on authoritarianism. They turn out to be highly hierarchical, but most frequently are oligarchical – ruled by an elite group of leaders. Thus, the Calvinista power structure is rife with:

Favoritism – preference shown to their celebrity heroes – pastors, speakers, writers, church planters, etc.
Nepotism – preference given to extended family members.
Cronyism – preference given to personal friends.
Church discipline as shown to those who refuse to abide by Calvinistas’ totalism, or who fail in full compliance to it and/or in full submission to the designated leaders....

Some of the key problems in these approaches boil down to promoting personas over authenticity, conformity over creativity, and corruption over integrity....

I agree with this fellow on the Power structure, and mostly with Mission and Stance Toward Culture of portions his article, Theologically I'm really in agreement with these Calvinists--except Dominionism. I'm hostile to way they carry out their plans

A Mark Driscoll or perhaps a Matt Chandler, points out what's wrong with the Acts29.

WFP, look at.
Romans 8
7 because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so;
8 and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.---NASB
John MacArthur wrote:
"Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith" (Gal. 6:10; cf. Titus 3:1-2). It would also display a lack of gratitude for whatever amount of religious freedom the government allows us to enjoy. Furthermore, such pious apathy toward government and politics would reveal a lack of appreciation for the many appropriate legal remedies believers in democracies have for maintaining or improving the civil order. A certain amount of healthy and balanced concern with current trends in government and the community is acceptable, as long as we realize they were that interest is not vital to our spiritual growth, our righteous testimony, or the advancement of the kingdom of Christ. Above all, the believer's political involvement should never displace the priority of preaching and teaching the gospel.

The SA reference is a short, interesting article about them. I will point out a few things that were left out. The Catholics did not let the Jews the Dead Sea Scrolls for quite a while. The Benedictines kept them from them. National Geographic made an interesting documentary about the Dead Sea Scrolls a couple years back, you can see the whole thing -- of all places on Catholic High School site. But considering the Romish involvement in the Dead Sea scroll story, perhaps it isn't all that surprising. Anyway the documentary is quite interesting and videos of many of the places that the Scrolls were discovered and related sites. It does last for 45 minutes
https://tinyurl.com/y8r6zo6m (Dead Sea Scrolls - National Geographic Documentary). It was viewable on my Android tablet. It also included a transcript which was just so-so. Or from the secular YouTube site, https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4rN79yvpi1k (Dead Sea Scrolls - National Geographic Documentary)

BM, where do you get 2012? It mentions it nowhere in the article? This wasa recent posting on ABC News Radio. Now the last Frat thing I did hear about frats was this article, LSU student death under investigation, described as 'potential hazing incident', the Penn State thing was posted around the country, but the one that I did put up was on KRVN, oh, and this is a late breaker as well, Former student sues fraternity after alleging hazing ritual left him with brain damage---"The son of a legendary Dallas Cowboys player is now suing a University of Oklahoma
fraternity, alleging that a hazing ritual left him with permanent brain
damage so severe he can no longer remember his Social Security number."

But looking further in the news, the Penn State story is on KRVN as a late
breaking story, q.v., Penn State frat suspended after allegedly intoxicated teen found unconscious.

If it isn't recent then a lot of ABC radio stations will be

A Penn State fraternity is facing punishment after a student was hospitalized after allegedly drinking too much alcohol. This comes just months after another fraternity at the school, Beta Theta Pi, was banned following the death of a pledge.

On Sept. 28, an 18-year-old male student who allegedly became intoxicated at Delta Tau Delta was found unconscious off campus by police, Penn State said in a statement.

The student was hospitalized and is recovering, the school said.

Penn State said Delta Tau Delta fraternity functions are "suspended on an interim basis" pending an investigation into the teen's injuries.

"Why are many evangelical leaders, including some who pontificate on nearly everything else, scared silent as evangelicalism is associated with everything from authoritarianism and bigotry to violations of religious freedom? How can they look the other way in silence when politicians praise Planned Parenthood and demur about white supremacists and neo-Nazis?" Moore writes. 

of all, what happens when evangelicalism is no longer even clear about what it takes to be saved: repentance from sin and personal trust in Jesus Christ?" ---Russell Moore from, http://tinyurl.com/yal32sd2 (Russell Moore: Why the Word, ' Evangelical' Is Meaningless) also look at, http://tinyurl.com/l8a5wel (2016 election exposes evangelical divides)

considering both of these pieces were written during the presidential election, you will find items about Trump that you may not care to read!

True, Adriel.

Frank, you have a boring idea - - but don't be upset about my comment about it. I support the notion.

Decades ago when the two parties were alike I thought it was very tedious. But through the years and through the divergence of their philosophies I'll go along with your idea. Boring would be a refreshing change!

Yes, especially shouldn't have an Islamic Inman, he might stir them up that go on a Jihad against North Korea.

Of course the few politicians who might be Christian don't need a chaplain there and we think it's hypocritical considering that many of the rest of the members are like like the one who just resigned. http://krvn.com/abc_politics/pennsylvania-congressman-tim-murphy-to-resign-abcid35978448/ He decided to resign after his mistress pointed out that he want her to get an abortion. I don't think there's been any comments from his wife yet?

Phillip, I think the term, "nominal Christian" should be used. Now of course
these nominal Christians are preferable to Muslims, and your example of
Saudi Arabia is an excellent one. However, a Christian, and he
doesn't really even have to know what the Protestant Reformation was, because
unfortunately the Orthodox world never had one, but still an
actual Christian has to recognize http://tinyurl.com/guqmzv6 (What are the “five solas,” and what do they
mean?)
. It's a Biblical definition of a Christian no matter if he has
the label of Protestant or not.

Adriel, countries with a strong Catholic/Anglican tradition are weak on
Christianity, I would think just about every country that had a state
church no matter what variety it is, is weak on Christianity.

Again the Romish Church and the Orthodox Church isn't far behind with the
Anglican apparently bringing up the rear should be noted for hostility to
Christianity, as organizations are actually anti-Christian.

The following isn't by Dave Hunt by the way! See the comments on
Inquistions.

They are having a hard time getting a handle on the shooter, but still an article on this mass killer, https://tinyurl.com/yb8na7aa (Five days after Las Vegas massacre many questions remain, few answers)

The Atlantic gave good reasons why they don't think he became a Muslim.

Graeme Wood wrote:
The vast majority of the Islamic State’s claimed attacks were undertaken by men acting in its name, often after leaving short video statements confirming their intentions. The Amaq news agency is the preferred venue for the initial claim, usually within a day....The idea that the Islamic State simply scans the news in search of mass killings, then sends out press releases in hope of stealing glory, is false. Amaq may learn details of the attacks from mainstream media—and often gets those details wrong, also like mainstream media—but its claim of credit typically flows from an Amaq-specific source....

...They have offered no evidence—no cell-phone video from the killer, pledging allegiance in broken Arabic; no selfies of him, raising a finger of monotheism....

I caught some news announcements about him tonight - - though it was daytime in Australia, so I went to the Australian Broadcasting Company's website and I only found something of interest for today but due to and incorrect dating I found an article about 4 years ago where he was interviewed. It was highly informing and there is a transcript with it. Just tap on the word transcript to see it. Pell admits coverup.
