The Real Gospel


By Hal Lindsey

People love to add their own thoughts to the end of viral emails. Those thoughts can undermine the message of the original writer. One such email started going around several years ago — at least as far back as 2007. In addition to its life as an email, it has been featured in several devotional books and websites.

Somewhere along the way, someone tacked on the phrase, “That’s the whole Gospel message, simply stated.” One book, written by a Baptist minister, concluded with a slight variation — “That is the whole Gospel Message, simply told.”

It’s the story of an old man whose good attitude causes a young thug to change his ways. It’s inspirational. But many of the people putting it on their websites, in their books, and in their emails, include the line saying it is the “whole Gospel message, simply stated.”

That’s quite an astounding claim for a story that never mentions Jesus, never speaks of God, and doesn’t mention the cross. I have no problem with inspirational stories. But when someone calls it “the whole Gospel Message, simply told,” it concerns me deeply….. read more

The Flag, the “why” and the “what” :: By Bill Wilson


American flag….. I’ve been involved in a lot of conversations lately about the flag. Many, in fact, most, say that people should be forced to stand for the playing of the National Anthem and the presentation of the flag. To me, true freedom is not about forcing someone to recognize it. It is about the individual embracing it in their hearts—where the American ideal resides. They should have enough good sense to stand even if it is just out of respect for those who gave their blood, sweat and tears that others might have the freedom to protest societal wrongs. Forcing someone to stand during the National Anthem and presentation of the flag may have better optics, but is it truly representative of liberty? Let me give another thought.

Some years ago, my wife and I along with some very brave parents started a Christian home school co-op. We taught all the grades and had about 15 students ranging from first grade to high school. Each morning, we started the school with prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. When I would ask who would like to lead the Pledge, it was like pulling teeth. They didn’t have any problem praying, but holding that flag and leading the Pledge was a different story. I talked it over with others who said just to mandate it and force them to do it. But that didn’t set well with me. So I started telling true stories about the flag, the heroic efforts of those who carried it into battle, and what it meant to people. The attitudes changed and soon all the students, younger and older, were asking if they could hold the flag and lead the Pledge…… read more

Truth About Jesus – In The Beginning Part 2


Bible – Written word of God | Jesus – Living word of God

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

In The Beginning

It is not that God has a beginning or end but the world and mankind have a beginning and end. Does this include Christ Jesus?

John 1:1 ESV In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

v1) In the beginning
Before time existed was the Word. The Word is Christ. The Word, Christ, was with God. The Word, Christ, is God

v2) In the beginning
Christ Jesus pre-existed. Christ, God, is self-existing.

Beginning-746-arxe- properly, from the beginning (temporal) sense), i.e. “the initial (starting) point”; (figuratively) what comes first and therefore is chief (foremost), i.e. has the priority because ahead of the rest (“preeminent”) (biblehub.org)…. read more

Truth About Jesus – The Word Part 1


Bible – Written word of God | Jesus – Living word of God

For over a year I have been compelled to write that Jesus and the bible are in essence, one. The bible and Jesus are so misrepresented today from the new translations in that they either leave out or change who He is, to teaching false doctrine. I began reading a book by Herbert Lockyer, thick book, that put together the “Messianic Prophecies”. This will not be in-depth but to bring us to full acceptance Jesus is the Word of God.

John 1:1 AMP In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. 2 He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God…..

14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception)…. read more

School Teachers Being Forced To Affirm Trans-genderism


Matthew 10:19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.

On the Edge Again

John McArthur answers the best he can. But, no matter what, I think of the book of Daniel and how he always obeyed the Lord God Almighty and trusting in Him and Him alone. God always saw him through his trials.

Updated News – What is Truth and Who’s Truth Are We Believing?


At who’s cost are we free from? Who’s truth is this? There is only one Truth!

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Many are paying a high price and are deceived and live as if there is no God but at the same time are very angry at someone they do not believe in. Does this sound confusing to anyone? God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33)! He created man and woman and He named them man and woman (Genesis 1:27). Satan hates God with a passion. No one hates God more than Satan and he knows the bible better than you. He can imitate it (2 Corinthians 11:14) and speak it (Matthew 4), but he is lacking one thing that is the most important piece. He does not have the Holy Spirit to understand it (1 John 2:27). There are many people saying they are a christian with no fruit to bear or any understanding of what God is actually saying. We have so many false preachers leading many people astray. The question is are you tired of being Satan’s puppet on a string (Calling Evil Good and Good Evil)? Our hope is that you seek the Truth!

Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Deception And Where Does It Take You

Why deception is so important to know, learn and understand? Why, because you may not know you are being deceived. Jesus is the True Light but Satan imitates light! You must learn who is who! Our hope is that the light of God’s Truth will reveal the deception in your heart, and you accept what lie has been given and that you move forward into God’s Truth…..

What is Deception and how does this affect me?5

How was Eve deceived? Eve was deceived because she did not take God?s word to heart. Are you following in Eve?s footsteps and if so do you know how you got there or how to get out? This is how Eve was lead into deception: First the deception (Satan) was cunning. Satan appeared fine, delicate in a way that was difficult for Eve to perceive or understand. Cunning = skillful in deception Skill = reasoning…..

Surprising Truths About Fruits and Vegetables


Tomatoes, japaleño peppers, serrano peppers and now avocadoes are all under scrutiny due to the recent Salmonella outbreak, making many Americans nervous about eating their vegetables.

Or make that, their fruits. Oh, drat. Which is it?

Actually, all four of these produce items are classified as fruits by scientists, regardless of what consumers, grocers and nutritionists think, said Amy Litt, director of Plant Genomics and Cullman curator at The New York Botanical Garden.

“The thing that is funny from my point of view, and it’s always a mystery to me, is that everyone knows that a tomato is a fruit, but they don’t know that a squash or a string bean or a cuke [cucumber] is also a fruit,” said Litt, who lately is studying the genes that make tomatoes fleshy. “I’m not sure how it got into the public realm of knowledge that a tomato is a fruit. But it’s like, well, all these other things are a fruit too.” .. read more

opinion: This article is old but a very good one and it talks about fruits and vegetables. Man has perverted the food we eat due to money, yep you got it MONEY! So what are some foods we eat that are being called a vegetable? Squash, Zucchini, Tomatoes and so forth. These are actually fruits. It helps to know the truth as we are feeding our bodies.

Fruit mean – Seed bearing, the developed ovary of a seed plant with its contents and accessory parts, as the pea pod, nut, tomato, or pineapple and the edible part of a plant developed from a flower, with any accessory tissues, as the peach, mulberry, or banana.

Vegetable mean – any plant whose fruit, seeds, roots, tubers, bulbs, stems, leaves, or flower parts are used as food, as the tomato, bean, beet, potato, onion, asparagus, spinach, or cauliflower and the edible part of such a plant, as the tuber of the potato.

legumes mean – pod or pea plant or the seed of a plant

Genesis 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

Genesis 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Proverbs 15:17 Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fatted ox and hatred with it.

Romans 14:2 One [man’s faith permits him to] believe he may eat anything, while a weaker one [limits his] eating to vegetables.

Do your own research and learn what God says about herbs (vegetables) and fruit. By the way teach your children the truth, many do not know!

It Makes Me Wonder by Daymond Duck


It is common knowledge that 15 of the 19 terrorists that flew planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11/2001 were from Saudi Arabia. The U.S. has even built a 9/11 Memorial & Museum to honor the 2,983 people that were killed.

It is common knowledge that the founder of al-Qaeda was Osama ben Laden, and he was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Former Pres. Barack Obama even boasted about killing him in May 2011.

It is common knowledge that there are more than 3,000 mosques in the U.S. and many of them were financed and built by Saudi Arabia. According to some experts, almost 100 of these mosques are radical Islamist mosques and yet as far as this writer knows, not even one has ever been shut down.

As a candidate for president, Donald Trump was strongly criticized for saying the U.S. might have to consider shutting down mosques for the hatred coming out of some of them. He was accused of infringing upon the religious freedom of Muslims….. read more
