Hypocrit: TD Jakes Cancels Zambia Trip In Fear of Disease: so much for living by what he spews

I got the heads up on this from Slic of Laodicea. Here's an excerpt from the short article at Insight News:

Oct. 14 (GIN) - American televangelist TD Jakes called off a planned trip to Zambia where he was to officiate at a Freedom Summit, meeting presidential hopefuls ahead of this month's presidential election.

Summit organizers were unable to reassure Bishop Jakes there was no chance of catching the viral hemorrhagic fever believed to be rodent-borne. Two out of three victims of the disease, who died in Johannesburg, had come from Zambia.

I guess what's good for the goose isn't good for the gande. Heretic TD Jakes seems to walk in fear and elitism instead of living by what he claims he believes: the Word-Faith junk. Even he doesn't believe what he spouts. That should tell his followers a LOT.

I found this quote today and love it:

“Discernment is not simply a matter of telling the difference between what is right and wrong; rather it is the difference between right and almost right.” -Charles Spurgeon

Don't Panic: Our Hope Is In Christ Jesus, Not Man

Reading the news headlines, it seems everyone's running scared and the world is chaotic. I can see the world becoming quickly ripe for a one-world leader. Between American politics, the stock market meltdown, the housing mortgage and bank chaos, increasing socialism overtaking capitalism, terrorism, rumors of impending wars....its enough to see how people could panic.

Here's just a friendly reminder to Christians to not panic, for The Sovereign God is indeed controlling His universe and we are in HIS hands. Our hope is not to be in men.

Jeremiah 17:5, “Thus says the Lord, ‘Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength and whose heart turns away from the Lord.’”

Psa 20:1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
Psa 20:2 May he send you help from the sanctuary and give you support from Zion!
Psa 20:3 May he remember all your offerings and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah Psa 20:4 May he grant you your heart's desire and fulfill all your plans!
Psa 20:5 May we shout for joy over your salvation, and in the name of our God set up our banners! May the LORD fulfill all your petitions!
Psa 20:6 Now I know that the LORD saves his anointed; he will answer him from his holy heaven with the saving might of his right hand.
Psa 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
Psa 20:8 They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.
Psa 20:9 O LORD, save the king! May he answer us when we call.

36,000 Non-Churches to Close October 12----That's GOOD News

36,000 churches to close next Sunday

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Oct. 6 /Christian Newswire/ -- As the worsening economy continues to make life difficult for families across the country, churches are putting their faith into action this Sunday, October 12th by doing something radical. This year, more than 300 churches nationwide will close their doors to help serve their neighbors in need. Some 36,000 Americans are now involved in this growing movement.

Three leading Christian organizations, World Vision, Outreach and Zondervan, are behind Faith in Action.

1.) Church is for believer's only and is mandated for believers to actively be committed to it. See Matt. 18, Acts, Heb. 10 & 13, 1Corinthians14, Ephesians 4:10-21,, 1 &2 Timothy and Titus, as well as the various letters to the local churches. The purpose of being in a local church is for the building up of each believers to a mature man in Christ, to be equipped to minister to others, for accountability, and to be solid in the faith so as to not be tossed by every wind of doctrine--for the glory of Jesus Christ.

2.) Social programs will not solve the most dire need of each living human: the preaching of the gospel. This must be preached with words, not lived by silence:

Rom 10:14 How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching?

Rom 10:17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

3.) Many "churches" are nothing more than social clubs and as such, ought to be shut permenantly. We can do much better without these fake churches that perpetrate puddle-deep theology and socialistic politics merging with inter-faith garbage in the name of Jesus Christ.
