    Miss Beth asked:

    “What if the protestant church is the harlot riding the beast? What if Sunday worship is her mark? What if the implosion of our various church & school systems is merely the demasking of false religions that have been in place for centuries?”

    Have you read Dave Hunt’s book The Harlot Rides the Beast? It is based entirely on passages from Revelation about that.

    Since Sunday is the first day of our week and the early church gathered together to fellowship on the first day of the week (as it is written in the NT) for the express purpose of commemorating the resurrection of Christ Jesus, I cannot see how that’s an issue?

    “What if shabbat & the feast calendar & clean eating leads to love & joy & peace, patience & kindness, the ruach’s fruit in me & you? — goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self- control… the mind of Mashiach?”

    The book of Hebrews, which was written to Jews in the early church, shows us clearly that the New Covenant is infinitely better than the old, that the blood of Jesus has done for us what the priestly system of the Old Covenant could not achieve — that the Law cannot save, it is was given for the purpose of showing us our need for the Savior.

    As to your other comments which I did not copy and paste here: Christ Jesus clearly said what would happen in the last days, which we are seeing now, and the apostles all confirmed His Words by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

    God bless you.

    “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
    ‭‭Mark‬ ‭10:15‬ ‭ My sons, now 24 & 22, grew up on the simplicity of the Gospel message , like Veggie Tales simple. They attended Christian school for middle school and because of finances, couldn’t continue. I felt burdened; however, they grew up with a discernment that their friends who stayed in Christian education do not possess because of what was and is being taught in the classrooms unbeknownst to the parents. These are the youth who have attended the Bethel school in Redding California. I have sent loads of information to the parents of these now young adults and trying to get them to unlearn most things they were taught is an uphill battle. Upon reflection, I find this odd to say but I will say it anyway… I am grateful that the Lord saved my kids from classroom Christian education and emergent church youth groups.

    I certainly recognize that as a broad stroke comment that does not apply to all Christian education of course. It really just dovetails the many many articles in which this site LTR has highlighted. We cannot even find a grounded, expository teaching church as everything seems to be geared towards grabbing a cuppa [sic] coffee, wearing flip-flops and enjoying a Sunday service. No one is being challenged with doctrinally Biblical teaching and western world “ Christianity“ is rapidly failing. Come Lord come.

    WOW is all I can say, sadly shaking my head. WHY is there so little discernment these days, not only among the college faculties themselves, but also among parents and students???

    When I saw the words “monster” and “Jesus” linked in the same phrase in the syllabus you linked (I couldn’t bring myself to copy and paste that), I knew then that that college, faculty, and any undiscerning students are in DEEP trouble. Oh how we need a true revival today, all across our land!

    I definitely share your concern about the expanding contemplative problem. But if Calvinism has grown to the extent that you indicate, it stands to reason that a few would fall by the wayside, but not necessarily due to Calvinism. I would say it’s more likely due to the negative impact of emergence, of the mega church, the false attraction of mysticism, or perhaps they were never even saved in the first place. How many others have fallen away and were never bought in to Calvin’s teaching? I would think certainly as great a number if not more.

    • Calvinism has a lot to do with liberalism. I have been attacked by Calvinists for years; and now, just lately, in the church I had been attending. They have no problem thrusting lies and hatred toward the ones who do not fall into their traps of demonic deceptions. They will lie in the most deceptive ways to hurt your heart terribly. They will work behind your back to try and harm you; yet, pretend to be kind to your face. Many leaders in Calvinism have tried to entice me to approve of porno. It is terrible; even emailing it to me! These vicious Calvinists seem to lurk everywhere these days in churches. Though anyone who rests in the words of men are dangerous. Those who want you reading books and not learning the Bible from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21 must be avoided.

    Dear Editors,

    “I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.” (2 Timothy 4:1-4)

    May God continue to bless and protect you and your ministry.

    What if the protestant church is the harlot riding the beast? What if Sunday worship is her mark? What if the implosion of our various church & school systems is merely the demasking of false religions that have been in place for centuries? What if the falling away has already occurred & the man of sin is actually the modern church machinating our families to pieces? What if shabbat & the feast calendar & clean eating leads to love & joy & peace, patience & kindness, the ruach’s fruit in me & you? — goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self- control… the mind of Mashiach? Your work has been instrumental in my studying thru the above & many other concerns. Your very long list of woes is one of the things that has driven me to find a simpler way to live out belief in our perfect Savior. I have decided there is no way for me to do it in the Sunday system because I do not see it as His system, therefore, He is not there. This REALLY makes it another Jesus calling.
