Marks Of False Religion
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on this article.

Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

In context Paul is especially addressing, though perhaps not to the exclusion of other false religion, what had become the false religion of the Pharisees and Jewish leadership.  There were many Jewish so-called "Christians" making the rounds among the fledgling early churches who were trying to get the Gentiles to come under the Law from which Christ had purchased their freedom.  John Gill states this case well in his commentary.

Southern Baptist pastor Rick Warren will be a part of the ecumenical and interfaith gathering this September where Pope Francis himself is expected to appear. In the Catholic Herald piece we learn that the most important thing that can happen at the week long congress is conversion so that "families can become a force of change for good." Obviously the conversion they're referring to is placing their faith in Roman Catholicism. So it's doubtful that the purveyor of pragmatism, Rick Warren, will share the true gospel of Jesus Christ during his speech, as that would certainly be viewed as divisive. But we shall see. The Catholic Herald's report begins: More than 1.5 million people are expected for the Mass with Pope Francis in Philadelphia this September, said organisers of the next World Meeting of Families. A high-level delegation from Philadelphia, led by Archbishop Charles J Chaput, was in Rome as of Monday to meet Vatican officials, review some of the planning and promote the week-long congress.

Christian Colleges Falling Deeper into Apostasy As They Cave in to Supreme Court Ruling
by Lighthouse Trails, 7/9/15 LT Publishing

Quick to jump on the band wagon for accepting the homosexual lifestyle is Baylor University, (the largest Baptist university in the world). According to a July 8th 2015 Time magazine article titled "This University Has Dropped Its Ban on 'Homosexual Acts,'"  Baylor "dropped a prohibition on 'homosexual acts' from its sexual conduct policy"this past May. But Baylor is not the only one. A Christianity Today article, dated July 8th 2015, titled "Hope College and Belmont to Offer Benefits to Same-Sex Spouses" explains how Belmont University (in TN) and Hope College (MI) are "extending benefits to same-sex spouses of employees after last month's Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide." By the  way, you can be sure Christianity Today isn't too upset about these changes-they've been promoting the emerging church and contemplative spirituality for a long time. Wheaton College has already headed down this path showing acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle, and many others will follow suit. And remember, those colleges are training the next generation of pastors and church leaders so the affects will undoubtedly be remarkable. It appears it is too late to stop the tide of what is happening to Christian colleges. But at Lighthouse Trails, we will continue to send out a warning to parents and grandparents to keep their kids out of these schools and try to find ones that are in a fast-diminishing group of biblically based colleges. At the very least, we hope parents and grandparents will make sure their college-age kids and grandkids are well equipped to live in a world that rejects Christ and in a church that ignores spiritual deception.

Noah's story, will it become our story?
by Mike Oppenheimer, 7/6/15 Let Us Reason

Matt 24:38-39 "For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark," and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be." Noah's story is one of separation as he kept himself and his family from the defections and corruption of the society he lived in. He gave a testimony to all those who would ask about the boat he was building, not doubt being mocked as it was being built. The people watching him do this year after year for their whole lives until it was completed.

In the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision mandating that states reward same-sex marriages throughout the nation, churches across the country prepare for the inevitable assault on their tax-exempt statuses.
