MARK DRISCOLL CONTROVERSY COVER-UP? »

Since the first Elephant Room (ER) conference, I’ve been talking to you here at Apprising Ministries about a developing Evangelical Ecumenical Magisterium (EEM) growing up around Mark Driscoll and his ER co-host James MacDonald. This EEM of cult of celebrity megachurch pastors appears quite important to them. It would seem that rather than abandon it, they even resigned from The Gospel Coalition when […]

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY PARTNERING WITH BENNY HINN? »

That’s what well-respected Southern Baptist Tom Ascol, senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church and executive director of Founders Ministries, also thought based on his post Liberty University Partners with Benny Hinn. Here’s where it all begins as Apprising Ministries shows you below what Hinn has stated on his website concerning that possibility (click to enlarge): (source) Word […]

JESUS ALREADY DEFINED MARRIAGE FOR HIS CREATION »

Being that Apprising Ministries functions as an online apologetics and discernment ministry (OADM) we generally do not involve ourselves in political issues per se. However, there are those times when these kinds of issues will cross over into the theological arena. By now you likely know World Vision to hire “Gay Christians in Same-Sex Marriages” as World Vision U.S. president Richard […]

SBC’S THOM RAINER LISTS THE 20 MOST INFLUENTIAL EVANGELICALS »

Now when the Pharisees gathered to [Jesus], with some of the scribes who had come from Jerusalem, they saw that some of his disciples ate with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. (For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands properly, holding to the tradition of the elders, and when they come […]

THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HOLY SCRIPTURE »

by Pastor Larry DeBruyn  Did Jesus promise “revelations” would continue? “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he […]

You might have seen the March 18, 2014 Apprising Ministries piece WF Preacher Brian Houston says Christians serve same God as Muslims. In it I shared the following clip from Houston’s Hillsong TV // Living For The Master’s Well Done, Pt1 program: I then provided you with a transcription of what he says in that clip: How do […]

WORLD VISION REVERSES DECISION TO HIRE GAY CHRISTIANS IN SAME-SEX MARRIAGES »

By now you likely have seen the Apprising Ministries piece yesterday World Vision to hire “Gay Christians in Same-Sex Marriages”. It seems that they may have had a change of heart. Jamie Dean, News Editor at WORLD is reporting World Vision to reverse gay marriage decision: Less than 24 hours after international poverty ministry World Vision announced it would allow […]

*UPDATE* WORLD VISION U.S. TO HIRE “GAY CHRISTIANS IN SAME-SEX MARRIAGES” »

UPDATE: WORLD VISION REVERSES DECISION TO HIRE GAY CHRISTIANS IN SAME-SEX MARRIAGES I’ve told you before here at Apprising Ministries that there’s a very dark and threatening same-sex storm looming just barely off the coast of your own local evangelical church; and it’s, right now, beginning to approach hurricane force.

FUTURE OUTPOURING “PROPHECY” OF BETH MOORE »

Apprising Ministries first came onto the Net nine years ago to help pioneer the mission field of online apologetics and discernment ministry. Then my focus was upon the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church aka the Emerging Church—with its “big tent” Progressive Christianity aka Emergence Christianity. Since that time, as most all “new” things eventually do, these rebels against the final authority […]

“And my people are bent to backsliding from me.”—Hosea 11:7 Is the present-day church following the Word and ways of the Lord and abhorring all that is otherwise?
