    I am from Canada. And while I don’t think we have anywhere near the problem with NAR trying to steer Christians into militancy as the U.S., we do have the greatest level of political chaos and threats to our freedoms than I have ever seen here. Canada is beginning to fracture and come apart. It is easy to get drawn away from our purpose as “ambassadors for Christ” (as the bible teaches in 2 Corinthians 5:20) to get overly caught up in the political and social upheaval. You of course you want the country you love to get back to standing for the freedom, justice, equality, respect and love, and the fear of God that our forefathers held to. The things that made our nations great in the world. But we are in a period of serious deterioration on every level in this world. Yes, an awful lot of the chaos and instability has been “generated” by particular sources, both groups and individuals, and from the forces of spiritual darkness behind them. But our only hope is described in the bible. 2 Chronicles 7:14 is the only answer. Brokenness, repentance, humility and sincere remorse for our rebellion and sinfulness, and all of that genuinely from the heart. Until God sees that, this world will continue to spiral into the abyss of the Anti Christ rule. Unfortunately the peoples hearts and minds today are hardened and dark and far, far from God. So I don’t see national repentance happening unfortunately.
    And it certainly, for sure, will not happen in our churches filled with spiritual pride and its man centered worship. I do want to mention finally as I stated earlier. I don’t think we have nearly the problem in our nation with NAR as the U.S. does. But we have something similar and likely related. A lot of political leadership on “the right” these days are Jesuit/Catholic in their background and education. Interesting.

    Our Lord and Savior Jesus, love incarnate, loudly proclaimed to Peter, ” get thee behind Me Satan…..”
    Peter dared to correct and instruct Jesus. Peter’s words departed from God’s plan.
    Are not all believers commanded to boldly defend the faith? Jesus said that if we love Him we will obey Him. Jesus also said, For whosoever shall be ashamed of Me and of My words, of him shall the Son of Man be ashamed when He shall come in His own glory and in His Father’s and of the holy angels. Paul publicly confronted Peter for deviating from the truth.
    Don’t expect a, ” well done…” from Jesus if you have do not boldly defended the faith by exposing false teachers.

    This subject is so full of sad irony.

    From the Religious News Service article referenced:

    “Some of you might be thinking: Didn’t Jesus forgive sinners? Is not his grace enough for even Paula White? The answer is a resounding yes. But genuine Christianity teaches that in order to receive God’s grace for salvation, you must repent of your sin and turn to Jesus Christ. This is the message that Franklin Graham’s father, Billy, preached. This is the message that Jack Graham has preached. This is the message that global evangelist Greg Laurie has preached.”

    Bold, mine.

    Whatever “genuine Christianity” preaches these days, the Bible teaches no such thing about “repentance” in salvation. The “you must turn from your sins to be saved” gospel is part of the false gospel of Lordship “Salvation” (LS). It is the widespread heresy that “turning from sin”–in addition to trusting in Christ’s sacrifice on the cross–is a requirement to receive eternal life.

    “Repentance” in salvation is simply a “change of mind”, about one’s need for a savior, and that Christ is the only Savior. (The Greek word “metanoeo”, translated “repent”, means simply “to change the mind”.) With respect to salvation it means–not “turning from sin”–but turning from any means of salvation other than or in addition to relying on Christ’s work of dying on the cross for the sinner. Turning from sin is an issue of discipleship, not of justification.

    It is true that Billy Graham, and now Franklin, Greg Laurie and other “giants” in mainstream evangelicalism teach this LS heresy. THAT IS THE REAL PROBLEM!!!

    Paula White’s teaching is festooned with more than one heresy, yes. But many of her most “respected” evangelical critics hold the even more egregious doctrine of LS. Since both Grahams, Laurie and other noted teachers in evangelicalism already poisoned their own doctrine with LS years ago, why should anybody be surprised that they’ve compromised with Paula White’s nonsense?

    As long as Christians at large continue to be confused about repentance and/or support LS false teachers, we will see much more compromising with false teachers like White by supposedly “doctrinally sound” Christian leaders. Their gospel has already been fatally compromised with LS. The ship has sailed.

    Thank you for crying foul, Lighthouse. I agree that the apostasy present and future will be led by many false signs, false prophecies and lying wonders. That’s scripture.
    I was reading 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2 today regarding the great “falling away” or apostasy. What struck me was verse 4 where Paul writes, speaking of the man of lawlessness, “… who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sits as God IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD.” The “temple” in the NT is always used to refer to the Body of Christ…a temple not made of hands by man…in other words, THE CHURCH! This lawlessness and false, demonic spirit will be right inside the Body of Christ and happen right before our eyes. I may be wrong about my interpretation but no one can argue that is happening. God be with us.

    Everyday now the true remnant can see the apostacy taking place at alarming speed. Oh yes, very hard to see this happen. Prophecy unfolding right in front of us. So many are blind to what is happening. Time is short before our Lord’s return. Come Lord, I pray. Watching and eagerly waiting to be with Him. Lynne

    I am deeply concerned that Paula White is D. Trump’s spiritual adviser. How was she given this honor? Does our Prez have other spiritual advisers? Her ministry is not of the Lord but led by satan. That renowned pastors in the U.S. are endorsing her shows their ignorance of her ministry. Very sad. In the end, as the Bible says true believers will be a small remnant. Our Bible never mentions a great revival during end times before the Rapture. The great revival will come during the Tribulation when the 144,000 Jewish evangelists will win many Jews to their Jewish Messiah, Jesus.

      I can see the President not having discernment regarding the likes of Paula White, but Franklin Graham? I read something in the past year about him compromising with the Catholic church and had a priest open in prayer at an event. It seems like nothing should shock us anymore concerning the apostasy and the ecumenical compromise taking place everywhere.

        Heidi, sad isn’t it? Unfortunately, no one is immune from falling into deception when they follow after anything other than God.
        Follow God, not man.

      Very true. From what I understand, White and Trump have been friends for quite some time. He personally invited her to be his spiritual adviser claiming she had the “it” factor.

    Christians? No.
    Fake Christians? Yes.
    America a Christian nation? It never was.
    God’s Kingdom on Earth? No.
    God’s kingdom on Earth after His glorious second coming? You bet.
    Paula White a clown? Is that a question?
