Former Mars Hill Pastor Mark Driscoll told the audience at the 2014 Gateway Conference Monday that his family is going through "a very trying season" of death threats, physical attacks, and night terrors.
Driscoll, who was previously slated to speak at the October 20-23 conference, chose instead to come as an attendee.
After Gateway Pastor Robert Morris invited him on stage to greet the crowd, Driscoll asked everyone to pray for his family. "We've had a very trying season and (I'm) just trying to figure out how to be a good pastor to my family first. We all know that's the most important thing." more >>
Alternative rock musician and Dove Award winning Christian Michael Gungor of the musical collective, Gungor, is now calling for unity in Christendom months after being branded a heretic and other names like "twofold son of hell" for challenging the literal interpretation of the book of Genesis in the Bible.
Gungor, the son of a preacher, rattled the Christian community this year when he revealed that he and his wife, Lisa, the faces of the musical collective, don't literally believe in stories from the Bible on such topics as creation and the flood, a departure from orthodox Christian doctrine.
The revelation drew the ire of many Christian fundamentalists who have consumed Gungor music to the point of making some of the collective's popular songs like "Dry Bones" and "Beautiful Things" worship anthems. more >>
We see the evidence of witchcraft in Saul's life long before he consulted the witch of Endor. It began with his rebellion of disobeying God when he spared the King of the Amalekites and the best of all the animals.
In my previous article, we discussed Saul's encounter with the witch of Endor and how he summoned her expertise in the forbidden arts to call up Samuel when he wanted to know what God would have him do with the approaching army.
We automatically assume when reading about witchcraft in scripture that it must pertain to the sorcerers and witches, performing their spells and rituals in the darkness of a cave, but in Ezekiel 13:20-23 we are surprised to find it within the sacred space of a temple, being practiced by the religious leaders of Ezekiel's time, the very priests and prophets who claim they served Yahweh, the one and only God. more >>
