    Nigeria outrage as rape accused pastor returns The return of a flamboyant Nigerian pastor to his church a month after a celebrity photographer accused him of raping her twice, before she turned 18, has led to widespread outrage. Biodun Fatoyinbo decided to “step aside” after Busola Dakolo, who is married to popular musician Timi Dakolo, made the allegation. A women’s rights leader said his return was perpetuating impunity. His Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (Coza) church has refused to comment. When the accusations emerged in July, Pastor Biodun denied any wrongdoing but said he was taking “leave of absence from the...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | July 27, 2019 | Philip Cottraux
    Refining the Origin of Life ArgumentBy Philip Cottraux One of the most popular arguments for the existence of God involves the complexities of life itself, implying something so intricate could never be the product of natural causes. A supernatural intelligence would be required to form together even the basic living cell, with its membrane, cytoplasm, nucleus, and billions of lines of coding. Requiring over ten thousand chemical reactions each second just to stay alive, the cell is truly a remarkable feat of engineering. And to be fair, to date scientists really dont know how it originated, though there are plenty...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | July 13, 2019 | Philip Cottraux
    The Darkness and Light are both Alike to Thee By Philip Cottraux Psalm 139:1: O Lord, thou hast searched me, and known me. You cant hide anything from God. This can be both terrifying and comforting. For the last blog, I examined the 34th Psalm, which David wrote while on the run for his life from Saul. He and his men lived as fugitives in the wilderness every day for ten years. Think of how many nights he cried out to God for it to end, to no response. Yet he still had the faith to say they that seek...

  • The Reason For Their Damnation... the delusion

    And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. ( 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12)And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds...

    Christian Post ^ | 07/06/2019 | Leonardo Blair
    In September 2017, Costi Hinn, nephew of popular televangelist and faith-healer Benny Hinn, shared a brief testimony about why he defected from the family business of peddling the prosperity gospel to hapless adherents while living in the lap of luxury. About six months later in February 2018, following the death of renowned evangelist Billy Graham, Costis controversial uncle, who has often been criticized for his endorsement of the prosperity gospel, made a stunning confession that sometimes he took the erroneous prosperity gospel too far. "We get attacked for preaching prosperity, well it's in the Bible, but I think some have...

    Depths of Pentecost ^ | June 29, 2019 | Philip Cottraux
    Many are the Afflictions of the Righteous By Philip Cottraux After being anointed king, David would spend the next ten years on the run from Saul. He and his band of loyal soldiers lived in the wilderness like fugitives, sleeping in caves, never knowing where their next meal was coming from, and on constant watch for Sauls pursuing army. In a previous blog I wrote about David arriving at the tabernacle hungry and asking the high priest, Ahimelech, for food. A table with bread was located in front of the veil that concealed the holiest of holies. But this show...
  • The Deeper Teaching About The Self...the delusion

    Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. ( 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)I hope I have made it obvious, to all who have ears to hear, that our society is being set up for a delusion which will be damning. God will send this delusion...

(2 Thessalonians 2:4-5)This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers,...

    For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (2 Thessalonians 2:7)And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. ( I Timothy 3:16)There are two rival mysterious spiritual principles working simultaneously in the world today, vying for the hearts of all men. Paul tells us that both are actively doing a work, building rival kingdoms, developing a following, and...

    And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.( 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12) Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.( 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? (Jeremiah 5:30-31)I have been exploring the widespread acceptance of what fairly recently would have been absolutely unacceptable. One of example of this is Gay Pride month and all...

    Evangelical Christians were the backbone of President Trumps 2016 victory, and he is doing even better among them as he prepares for 2020, according to polling that shows strong support and religious-right leaders who say they are working to translate that into votes. Ralph Reed, founder and chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, said plans are in the works to register 1 million evangelical voters, knock on 3 million doors and put literature in more than 117,000 churches in key states, with the hopes of contacting roughly 30 million people. Its going to be the most ambitious and far-reaching...

  • Is The Delusion Already Upon us?

    And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. ( 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12)I am beginning to think that the long dreaded, God- sent delusion has already descended upon our generation. We are being judged by God, judicial blindness has come upon our generation, night has fallen and we have been deceived. Why do I think so? Just one example; Transgender Story Hour, is now widely considered a wholesome, family friendly event. The very idea that parents would...

    Atheisms Burden of Proof Problem By Philip Cottraux An effort to redefine what atheism actually means started a few decades ago but is popping up everywhere in the online community. Ive seen plenty of debates never get anywhere because people get sucked into a vortex of trying to establish what an atheist actually is. While the traditional definition of atheism is the belief that God doesnt exist, the new subversion is that its a lack of belief in God. The amount of energy devoted to this controversy is both fascinating and instructive. The first time I encountered the vehement denial...

    Getting the Spiritual Gifts Back By Philip Cottraux Galatians 5:22-23: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against which there is no law. Every Christian should produce these nine spiritual fruits in their lives, making us the most effective witnesses we can be. But theres a distinct difference between these and the spiritual gifts, which not everyone will have, as they are divided up among the body of Christ. But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will (1 Corinthians 12:11). During...
