This might upset some of you. Maybe that goes without saying.
I read in an article on TheBlaze about Rich Wilkerson, a reality TV star and “celebrity pastor” of a big, hip church in Miami that looks and sounds like a rock concert venue. Pastor Rich believes that his congregants “aren’t looking for religion” because they “don’t want to be told what to do,” but they are looking for a “relationship with a higher power.” Pastor Rich explains that the Gospel isn’t a message of behavior modification. Modifying behavior is totally uncool, yo.
Now, my commentary today isn’t only about him. I’m just using him as a jumping off point. He is, after all, just one of the countless Christian “pastors” who preach this comfortable, trendy, undemanding brand of Christianity. It’s a type very popular with people who want the vague feeling of “spirituality” but none of the challenges and sacrifices that go with it.
I said this might upset you because I go after a few modern Christian sacred cows here. Particularly, I think the phrase “personal relationship with Jesus” is potentially problematic (though not inaccurate, if considered the right way) because it contributes to the propagation of this heretical brand of Christianity. I explain why.
But more importantly, as Christians, our actions DO matter. Faith is not just something you think or feel. Faith is not just the mere acknowledgment of Jesus. Satan himself acknowledges Jesus, yet he’s still in hell. Clearly, there is more to this “faith” thing.
As Christians, our faith must be active, uncomfortable, sacrificial, even painful. If it is not, then it is not faith. Yes, faith is all we need, but we also need to come to a better understanding of what faith IS, exactly.
Pastor Rich (and Steven Furtick and Joel Osteen and the rest of the feel-good celebrity pastors) tell us that we can basically do whatever we want. They tell us Christianity is meant only to be fun and bring us pleasure. But that is not Christianity at all. What they are preaching is paganism, and they need to be called out:

I want you to read and share this, but I will warn that it’s disturbing. Our culture of shamelessness and acceptance has created or exacerbated many evils, but few as nauseating as this one.
The guy in the picture below is a 52 year old “transgender” who pretends he is a 6 year old girl. He abandoned his wife and 7 children to go live with his “adopted parents.” Horrifically, there are real children in the house with this pervert. They have been forced to take part in the role play.
Obviously, the children should be removed from the home and all of the adults involved should be committed to a hospital for the criminally insane. But really, this transaged transgender is no different from any other transgender. The two things are completely comparable and it is impossible to reject one while accepting the other.
Meanwhile, as I chronicle in this piece, there have been efforts in recent weeks and months to normalize a wide variety of other perversions. We’ve heard about transabled (people who think they should be disabled), transracialed (people who think they should be a different race), and even “otherkin” (people who think they’re a different species).
And it doesn’t stop there. Movements are growing to bring about the acceptance and tolerance of incestuous couples and pedophiles, too.
Our culture is in a free fall, my friends. And there are many reasons for it, but ultimately it comes back to the removal, first, of absolute truth, and then the eradication of judgment and shame.
It’s that last point I want to concentrate on today. Shame exists for a reason. And when you have a society where everyone thinks they should never feel it, you end up with this. Please read and share:

Discrediting The Fairy Tale Of Man Made Climate Change Through Their Own Words
In honor of the climate summit in Paris, lets take a closer look at the predictions that climate hysterics have made. Propagandists succeed because they realize the masses (that means you) can’t retain the details of news stories churned out at blistering speeds in modern society.
Taking advantage, they lie fearlessly knowing that hardly a soul will recall in 6 months time nevermind 5 years how wildly inaccurate and reckless their speech and warnings have proven to be. In this video, Paul Joseph Watson does society a valuable service by reminding us of all the discredited prophesies of doom and despair that climate alarmists have made in the recent past. The composite of their failures should teach us to never trust them again.
If climate change is not about authentic climate change and drastic situations like water covering NYC, what is it about?
As if having unenforcable emission standards weren’t bad enough, politico says this
And therein lies the sticking point on which negotiations actually center: “climate finance.” Climate finance is the term for wealth transferred from developed to developing nations based on a vague and shifting set of rationales including repayment of the “ecological debt” created by past emissions, “reparations” for natural disasters, and funding of renewable energy initiatives.
The issue will dominate the Paris talks. The INDCs covering actual emissions reductions are subjective, discretionary, and thus essentially unnegotiable. Not so the cash. Developing countries are expecting more than $100 billion in annual funds from this agreement or they will walk away. (For scale, that’s roughly equivalent to the entire OECD budget for foreign development assistance.)
Somehow, the international process for addressing climate change has become one where addressing climate change is optional and apparently beside the point. Rich countries are bidding against themselves to purchase the developing world’s signature on an agreement so they can declare victory — even though the agreement itself will be the only progress achieved.
This is a great time to listen in to the climate change chatter to try and figure out what propagandists are actually seeking with this climate change charade.
