NETFLIX TWISTS ANNE OF GREEN GABLES INTO A “QUEER SOIRÉE” (Friday Church News Notes, August 17, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - The following is excerpted from “Netflix Twists,” CBN News, Jul. 21, 2018: “The new Netflix adaptation of the 1908 novel Anne of Green Gables has been revised to include multiple homosexual characters, according to the series creator, Moira Walley-Beckett. In the Northwood Entertainment-produced series, ‘Anne with an E,’ the beloved character Great Aunt Josephine Barry is the first of many LGBT characters in the series. … Aunt Jo revealed in Season 1 that she was grieving over the loss of a character known as Aunt Gertrude, Josephine's partner. IndieWire reports their relationship is what's called a ‘Boston marriage,’ when two women live together without being supported financially by a man. The term didn’t exist during the time period of the show. ‘And so we touch on that in Season 1, and in Season 2 we get to expand... Read More

Preachers and Books

     “The cloke that I left at Troas with Carpus, when thou comest, bring with thee, and the books, but especially the parchments.” (2 Timothy 4:13)
    “The man who doesn’t read isn’t any better off than the man who cannot read.”
    “Five years from now you will be the same person except for the people you meet and the books you read.”
    Some preachers seem to disdain books. I once heard a preacher at an independent Baptist meeting say, “We don’t need more books; we need more preaching.”
    That’s a statement of ignorance. A good Christian book is simply good preaching and teaching.
    While it is true that there are heretical books available in the average Christian bookstore (we have warned about that in our video presentation and free eBook “Dangers in Christian Bookstores”), and while it is true that we must weigh every book by the infallible standard of God’s Word, it is not true that books themselves are wrong. ...

Looking for Evidence of Salvation

     In light of the Scriptures that describe evidences of salvation, following are some questions that can help an individual examine himself.
    “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?” (2 Corinthians 13:5).
    The objective is not to cause true believers to doubt their salvation; the objective is to provide help in situations where there is doubt, either on the part of the individual himself or on the part of a church that is examining an individual for baptism and/or church membership.
     These questions are not to be answered mentally as in a school test. They are to be answered from the heart, with the whole person.
    1. Have you repented and humbled yourself before God?
    “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven” (Mt. 18:3).... Read More

DAWKINS TARGETING TEENS AND CHILDREN WITH ATHEISM (Friday Church News Notes, August 10, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - Richard Dawkins, one of the leaders of the “new atheist” movement, is targeting teens and children with atheist propaganda. Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, said the book for teens will be titled Outgrowing God, while the one for children is yet to be named. The man is on a ridiculous... Read More

Lying Evolutionary Art, The Laetoli Footprints

    It has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and I have no doubt that more people have been influenced to believe in evolution by artwork than by words. From its inception, Darwinian evolution has been popularized by art. Lying art.
     THE LAETOLI FOOTPRINTS - Serious natural history museums typically feature a model or photo of the Laetoli footprints that purport to prove that apes walked upright over a million years ago on the evolutionary path toward manhood.
    In 1978, footprints discovered at a site called Laetoli in Tanzania by Mary Leakey’s team were announced to be “made by a creature that walked upright in a human manner.”
    Two sets of prints ran parallel to one another for a length of about 80 feet. One set of prints is man-sized while the other is much smaller.
    The footprints are used as an argument for depicting Australopithecus afarenses’s feet (Lucy) as human-like, in spite of the fossil evidence, and Lucy supporters... Read More

    NEBRASKA MAN - In 1922, Henry Osborn, president of the American Natural History Museum in New York City, announced the discovery of a new missing link between apes and man based on “fossils” discovered in Nebraska.
    This was based on a tooth discovered five years earlier by Nebraska rancher Harold Cook. Joining Osborn in the conclusion that a new apeman had been discovered were William Gregory (museum curator) and Milo Hellman, who were regarded as two of the world’s leading authorities on the teeth of primates. They concluded, “On the whole, .. Read More

CHARISMATIC CHURCH PURCHASES HIGHLAND PARK’S OLD PROPERTY (Friday Church News Notes, August 3, 2018, www.wayoflife.org fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - My wife and I graduated in the 1970s from Tennessee Temple, which was operated by Highland Park Baptist Church. It went defunct after pursuing a contemporary path, and today the property is owned by Redemption to the Nations Church pastored by husband-wife team Kevin and Deven Wallace. One of the upcoming events at this charismatic church is Redemption Kids Talent Night, at which kids are encouraged to “show the gifts God has given you with a song, dance, magic show or other talents.” The church’s objective is to “impart a Kingdom mandate,” which refers to the heresy of building the kingdom of God in this present world. The church’s Redemption School of Ministry is “where you can be yourself.” Somehow, I don’t recall that being... Read More

     PILTDOWN MAN - Piltdown Man was held forth as a missing link in human evolution for 40 years, but it turned out to be a complete hoax.
    In 1912, amateur naturalist Charles Dawson told the Geological Society of London that over the previous four years fragments of a skull, half of a lower jawbone, and a tooth had been found at the Piltdown gravel pit in Sussex. Dawson had been accompanied on some of his excavations by Arthur Smith Woodward, keeper of the geological department at the British Natural History Museum and the world’s leading expert on fossil fish, and by Teilhard de Chardin, Jesuit priest and New Age mystic. It was Teilhard who found another tooth at.. Read More

     NEANDERTHAL - Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the deceptive embryo chart and Java Man, also helped spread the Neanderthal myth. The first edition of his book History of Creation in 1868 featured a series of drawings depicting man evolving from apes--mandrill, monkey, gibbon, orangutan, chimpanzee, gorilla, Tasmanian, African Negro, Australian Negro, Fuegian, Chinese, Indo-German. Haeckel being German, placed his own “race” as the crown of evolution. In 1907, Haeckel described Neanderthal as a pre-human and placed him between Pithecanthropus (Java man) and Homo Australis, which he called “the lowest race of recent man.” This reflected Haeckel’s racist view that the Australian aborigines..

    HAECKEL’S DUMB APEMAN - Ernst Haeckel, inventor of the iconic evolutionary embryo chart, was also the inventor of the dumb cave-dwelling ape-man, and it was based on nothing more scientific than his own fertile imagination. As we saw in “Lying Evolutionary Art - Haeckel’s Embryo Chart,” Haeckel was not one to draw back from inventing facts out of thin air.

Southern Baptist Convention President

NEW SOUTHERN BAPTIST PRESIDENT SHOWS THE DANGER OF EVANGELICALISM TODAY (Friday Church News Notes, July 27, 2018, www.wayoflife.org, fbns@wayoflife.org, 866-295-4143) - In the book What Is the Emerging Church? (2008) we warned that the emerging church is weak on the issue of homosexuality. Brian McLaren, for example, says, “Frankly, many of us don’t know what we should think about homosexuality” (“Brian McLaren on the Homosexual Question,” Jan. 23, 2006, blog.christianitytoday.com). Chris Seay says, “Approach homosexuals without condemnation but with God’s love and the gospel” (ChurchRelevance.com, June 19, 2007). This confused thinking is now front and center in the Southern Baptist Convention by the election on June 12 of J.D. Greear as President. In 2014, in a message before the ERLC [Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission] National Conference on “The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage,” Greear said, “We have to love our gay neighbor more than we love our position on sexual morality … I am not saying that we would ever compromise our position or fail to state it, just that ...

The Emerging Church's Incarnational Doctrine

     A foundational teaching of the “conservative side of the emerging church is the idea that Jesus was incarnated into the culture of this world and the Christian is commissioned to do the same thing. They call this “missional.” Note the following statements by Mark Driscoll:
    “Jesus’ incarnation is in itself missional. God the Father sent God the Son into culture on a mission to redeem the elect by the power of God the Ghost. After his resurrection, Jesus also sent his disciples into culture, on a mission to proclaim the success of his mission, and commissioned all Christians to likewise be missionaries to the cultures of the world (e.g., Matt. 28:18-20; John 20:21; Acts 1:7-8). Emerging and missional Christians have wonderfully rediscovered the significance of Jesus’ incarnational example of being a missionary immersed in a.. Read More

Baptist Bible Fellowship International’s Road to Emerging

    Baptist Bible Fellowship International (BBFI) was founded in 1950 by pastors who left the World Baptist Fellowship as a result of a dispute with J. Frank Norris. Prominent among the roughly 100 founding pastors and missionaries were G.B. Vick and Noel Smith. They located their headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, and founded the Baptist Bible College there.
    The BBFI is a fellowship of pastors rather than a fellowship of churches. Any Baptist pastor can affiliate by adhering to the fellowship’s 20 articles of faith and leading his church to support at least one approved BBFI missionary or.. Read More

Third Generation Baptist Preacher Committed to Emerging Church

     The emerging church, its philosophy and direction, is illustrated by Chris Seay of Ecclesia (Church) in Houston, Texas.
    The emerging church is all about living as I please, about not being restricted by old biblical mores.
    Seay is a third generation Baptist pastor and the author of Faith of My Fathers: Conversations with Three Generations of Pastors about Church, Ministry, and Culture.
    In this book Seay describes how that his father and grandfather pastored traditional Southern Baptist churches. His grandfather pastored Magnum Oaks Baptist Church in Houston for 28 years but it closed its doors in 2002, soon after he retired.
