APPRISING MINISTRIES WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR HELP »

If you are a regular reader of Apprising Ministries, then you probably know about my battle with the osteomyelitis, which affected my spine. It was just over a year ago now that I would go into the hospital for nearly four full months. Unfortunately, we were without health insurance. So, we have since ended up with a six figure debt. […]

C.J. MAHANEY AT TOGETHER FOR THE GOSPEL »

Here at Apprising Ministries I’m doing what I can to continue covering The Falling Away Of The Evangelical Church, which is the article that essentially launched this work. Not long after I found fmyself among those who are also pioneering this still developing work of online apologetics and discernment ministry. Like it or not, as Jesus sends spiritual darkness […]

THE UNREGENERATE KNOW NOTHING OF THIS STRUGGLE »

Here at Apprising Ministries you’ve heard me warn you on a regular basis about the despicable Church Growth Movement (CGM),1 which slithered out of the spiritual black hole known as Fuller Theological Seminary (FTS). Briefly, we trace the origins of the CGM back to Donald McGavran who in 1965:  was asked by Fuller Theological Seminary […]

ROB BELL SET TO TOUR WITH OPRAH WINFREY »

“Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet?” Amos 3:3) Rob Bell Is Now Walking With Oprah Winfrey Through The New Spirituality Apprising Ministries was blessed by the Lord to be among the online apologetics and discernment ministries (OADM) who were the first to cover apostate Rob Bell, the former rock star icon of the Emerging Church aka the Emergent […]

BLINDED BY THE ERRORS OF ROME »

Formerly, when our hearts were blinded by errors in teachings from Rome, we imagined that God was a salesman who sold his grace in exchange for our our works and achievements. Now, however, since the light of the gospel has dawned, we know that we are credited as righteous only by faith in Christ. Our […]

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.
