Lighthouse Trails has been blessed and privileged to work with dozens of committed, discerning, Bible-believing authors since 2002. Below is a list of 10 articles we posted in 2021 by some of these men and women (in order of date posted – earliest first).
1)”The Warfare is Confessional (Whom Do We Really Fear?)” By Bill Randles
Sooner or later, every Christian, on some level, will be called upon to make the good confession. The setting is never a favorable one; it will range from either mildly hostile to absolutely death-dealing hatred, but we are being and will be called upon to make our confession. We don’t have to rehearse our confession. The Holy Spirit will give us what to say when we are called up before various human tribunals. It will just come out of us naturally, this good confession of truth, in the day of our own trial. Read more.
2) “Covid, Vaccines, Global Reset,” and Israel By Tony Pearce
We live in strange times, with changes that took place to our way of life in 2020 which we would not have thought possible at the beginning of the year. Now we are wondering what 2021 will bring. We are being told that the arrival of the new Covid-19 vaccine signals the light at the end of a dark tunnel. In November, U.K. prime minister Boris Johnson said, “Together we can get through this winter, suppress the virus until vaccines come to our aid, and then reclaim our lives and all the things that we love.”1 He implied that this would happen by spring 2021.

3) “Glorifying the Savior / Exposing Deception” By Richard and Linda Nathan
It was 1962, and there was a sense of awakening in the air, a call to a different kind of life. Young people hearing the siren song were pouring into San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury District from across the nation. A once-declining neighborhood, the Haight was blossoming overnight into a counterculture Mecca, spreading the new consciousness in a chaotic profusion of hippie pads, light shows, and drugs.
One sunny spring day, we met at an anarchist meeting.
Richard’s father, Julius, was a tough Marxist revolutionary who had known Chinese premier Mao Tse Tung prior to the 1949 communist takeover in China and had organized cannery workers from Monterey to San Francisco. Now he supported a hotbed of radical leftists who ran Ye Olde Anarchiste Bookstore in the Nathan storefront apartment on Ocean Avenue. Read more.
4) “Creating Hate” By Manning Johnson
The Red [Communist] propagandists distort the facts concerning racial differences for ulterior motives. All the right is not on the Negro side. Neither is all the wrong. The same holds true with regard to the white man’s side. The repository of good or evil is not to be found in any particular race. Black men are just as good or as bad as white men. Yellow men are just as good or as bad as brown or red. It ill behooves anyone to speak about the other. White men sold white men as slaves. Black men sold black men as slaves. Black rulers are no more humane than yellow, red, or white rulers. Neither are they less brutal. Read more.
5) “Dead Men Talking—Necromancy in Today’s Church” By Warren B. Smith
In 2010, Steve Berger, founding pastor of the Grace Chapel megachurch in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee, wrote a book with his wife Sarah titled Have Heart: Bridging the Gulf Between Heaven and Earth. The book described how they claim to be in spiritual contact with their deceased son Josiah. And like Titanic’s William Stead, the Bergers, as professing Christians, were attempting to justify and normalize the practice of interacting with the dead. Read more.
6) “The Turning” By Mike Oppenheimer
Lying has always been with us but has now reached epidemic proportions having no limits. I’m shocked when I occasionally hear the truth from those who more often lie. The fact is, liars are accepted more quickly than those who tell the truth because they lie so well. There are liars in the pulpits of the church, liars in politics, liars in medicine; everywhere you turn you can’t get a straight and honest answer. Read more.
7) “Astroworld Tragedy and a Generation Under a Demonic Spell” By Gregory Reid
Occultism and Satanism are on the rise among youth. TikTok is showing new trends where youth are showing others how to call on their “other personalities” to help them develop multiple personalities. Naturally, they will be calling on demons without knowing it. It’s just the next step up from when schools were teaching kids to find their “imaginary friend” and talk to them. We are already seeing some real dangerous manifestations of these things when the “multiple personality” or “other” begins taking over. I’ve also seen videos of the next insane iteration of the gender blending pronouns like “ze” and “zer,” as two spiritually marred and confused kids told others they refer to themselves by their
“demons.” Read more.
8) “Calvinism, Catholicism, or Blessed Assurance—Which One Will It Be?” By David Dombrowski
When I was a boy, about eight years old, a stranger in a Safeway grocery store parking lot gave my mother a plaque he had cast of plaster of paris that bore the words, “In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:6). Mom had a special devotion to the Lord because as a child of about twelve years of age, after losing both her parents to mushroom poisoning, she knelt alone in a small chapel in Poland and invited Jesus into her heart. This was not something she was told to do but rather something she longed to do that she might have the life-long companionship of God in a world that had enclosed her with loneliness. Read more.
9) “2021 Parliament of the World’s Religions” Continues Spreading Interfaith Message By Carl Teichrib
Saturday was the first day of the 2021 Parliament of the World’s Religions, a global gathering of faith leaders from a multitude of religions, along with political and social influences – all working within an interfaith context to bring “Heaven on Earth” and “save humanity.”
Yes, I’ve heard this with my own ears as I’ve attended Parliaments in the past. In the history of the Parliament, this year’s event is number 8. The first took place in 1893, and approximately 4,000 people attended. This historical event became a key turning point for our modern era of internationalism, bridging East and West, and acting as a catalyst for the idea that we could secure global peace and harmony (and the Twentieth Century turned out to be exactly the opposite).

10) “When the Unthinkable Happens” By Maria Kneas
The apostle Paul wrote nearly a fourth of the New Testament. He had amazing revelations about God. Much of our theology is based on his writings. Yet he said: “For we know in part, and we prophesy in part” (1 Corinthians 13:9). Paul includes himself among those who only know “in part.” If the apostle Paul only knew in part, then no church, no denomination, and no individual has all the answers. All of us have areas where our understanding is limited. Read more.
