    Preston Sprinkle, one of the original advisory board members of Revoice, the “gay Christian” movement within Evangelical churches, has been instrumental in shifting the church’s doctrinal stance on homosexuality and other aberrant sexualities. It is through Sprinkle’s extensive relationships with mainstream Evangelical leaders James Merritt, Matt Chandler, and even names like Beth Moore, that he has been able to popularize what was once denounced as forbidden fruit by Evangelicals. In a video clip published by Q Ideas, a ministry that is dedicated to mainstreaming controversial theological takes within Evangelical churches, Preston Sprinkle says that “listening” has been the most important...

    Many sociologists now speak about the arrival of the post-Christian era in both America and the West in general. Way back in 1976, Newsweek Magazine spoke of “the year of the evangelical.” But church attendance is down in America. Young people abandon any semblance of their childhood faith as soon as they set foot in a university. This is a great concern in our churches. The Wall Street Journal recently published an analysis of national sentiment over the past 25 years on: · Religion: 62% in 1998 vs 39% today.· Having kids: 59% in 1998 vs 30% today.· Community involvement:...

    The cultural conflict is no longer simply political. The economic value of socialism or capitalism is no longer the debate separating citizens. It is, rather, what our children are learning, whether in non-Christian state schools or even in some Christian schools, about their sexuality, their family life and the theological issues that determine ultimate meaning. The Sixties was a key moment for Western culture. It might be hard to imagine, but when I was growing up as a lad in working-class Liverpool, England, and even when I became a young man in the Fifties, I had never even heard the...

  • A new revelation to Fr. Oliveira. A locution received from Our Lady of Fatima (Tribulation begins in October)

    Dear son, listen carefully: October this year will begin a period of great tribulation, foreseen by me when I was in France, in Portugal and in Spain. On those three occasions, I spoke about the cause for these [coming] tribulations. Be prepared, above all spiritually, for this period will not start with thunder, but will be gradual and will spread slowly throughout the world. The war [already] started will increase, as you saw above. There will be droughts, great storms and earthquakes in various places in the world. But as My Divine Son says: when you hear rumors, don’t be...

    A Christian group that has called the seaside town of Ocean Grove in New Jersey home for over 150 years is in a battle with state officials and a local group over beach access on Sundays. The resort town — known as “God’s Square Mile” — has kept its beach closed on Sundays from 9 a.m to noon — a total of 45 hours a year — each summer so that residents can attend church services. But New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection has issued Ocean Grove a violation letter stating the town is disobeying the law by cutting off...
  • Andy Stanley Isn’t the Problem, He’s Only a Massive Symptom

    The recent revelations about Andy Stanley’s gay-affirming theology come as no surprise to those who have watched the North Point pastor’s descent into heresy over the past decade. While not surprising, they do confirm unequivocally Stanley’s position and intent to affirm homosexuality in the Church. As reported extensively, Stanley’s “Embracing the Journey” conference provided a platform for speakers who actively promote acceptance and even celebration of homosexuality within the church, representing an unambiguous departure from historic orthodox Christian teaching on sexuality. However, the bigger issue is not Stanley’s own drift—as we’ve been covering this for years at The Dissenter—but the...

    Earlier this week, North Point Community Church hosted the Embracing the Journey conference, a two-day event for parents who have LGBTQ children or loved ones in their lives. Notably, nearly all the speakers were gay-affirming, including two men who are in homosexual marriages. We’ve been writing about it for a long time, documenting the theological drift of one of the largest megachurches in America, frequently with exclusive reporting. Some of the stories include: North Point Church Is Sending Children to All-LGBTQ Therapists: We Profile One of The Counselors Celebrating Transgenderism?!

It was not streamed or publicly shared, but we have access to it, and we’re posting it in full at the end. Because we were present at the Embracing the Journey conference, we will be giving a full report starting on Monday, but we can reveal here that this sermon sits in stark and diametric contrast to what was said at the conference. Stanley is lying, and he is speaking out...

    Did you know that the globalists’ depopulation agenda points to another end-of-days prophecy? Jesus made this startling prediction in Matthew 24:21-22: “For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. And if those days had not been cut short, no human being would be saved. But for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short.“ Although Jesus is referring to His return at the end of the Tribulation, talk of drastically reducing the earth’s population among today’s powerbrokers signals that Jesus’...

    On Sept. 20, 2023, during a meeting between Russia’s Defense Minister and Iran’s Minister of Defense and Armed Forces, the Iranian minister said: “Russia and Iran have developed to reach an unprecedented new level of cooperation and understanding.” “Our relations in the fields of defense and security have attained unprecedented development over the past decade.” “I have no doubt that our cooperation will lead to peace and stability on the world stage.” It would be wise to consider what God said along these lines more than 2,600 years ago. In the latter years and latter days, Gog (the dictator) of...

    For decades thousands of Christian lovers of Israel have participated in the Jerusalem March that takes place during the biblical feast of Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. They do this in preemptive fulfillment of Zechariah 14:16, which tells us: “And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.” They also do it in repudiation of Replacement Theology and centuries of Christian mistreatment of the Jewish people, and as...
