**LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS SPECIAL FOLLOW-UP REPORT**

Dear Friends: As apparently very few are yet aware of the fact that the Church is in the midst of a full frontal attack by the forces of evil; the whole landscape of Christianity is changing. What was once to be considered a battle on a single front is now a major offensive against the […]

  He also said, ‘This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in […]

The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War: Part 8

This entry is part 8 of 8 in the series The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War

My conclusion to Dr. Robert Moyer’s pamphlet could have very easily been the introduction, because I am not as interested in proving Moyer wrong as I am in getting at the truth. It is not the refutation of Dr. Moyer that I am primarily interested in; he is just one of the overwhelmingly large numbers […]

Tony Jones Says “Death to Homeschooling!”

This article by Tony Jones caught my attention because of the title. Why would someone write an article entitled Death to Homeschooling!? The article itself simply states the reason he doesn’t send his kid to public French immersion, charter school, or private school, or homeschool; but he doesn’t condemn any of the others, only homeschool.

Tony Jones A Believer????

For the life of me I cannot read anything Tony Jones has written or said without coming to the conclusion that he is an unabashed un-believer who flaunts his own intelligence as superior to God. His latest rant over at Patheos liberal blog illustrates clearly that he is a proud, boastful, un-believer. Here he takes […]

Setting Aside the Power of the Gospel for a Powerless Substitute

David Dombrowski of Lighthouse Trails Research has written the following article showing that what we are experiencing in the Church today, in nearly every instance, and advertised as authentic, is not the “power of God” at all. Rather, the pure Word of God has been substituted or replaced with pop psychology, new age teachings, and […]

Religion: Satan’s Greatest Deception (A Repost)

Religion is a curious and fascinating thing. I haven't done a study on the number of religions that exist in the world: main line religions, their various branches, sects, cults, and spin offs, but the vastness has to be mind boggling, all claiming to be the truth, lead to the truth, or be a variant […]

Truth!?

As you look out into the eternal vastness of outer space and contemplate the unique and unusual idea of—truth–to come to any definitive conclusion as to the reality and materiality of truth can seem as far away as a distant Nebula and as concrete as a massive cloud of gas. One primary area where truth […]

Gay Bashing: Those Who Do and Those Who Don’t

Why does it always sound so hypocritical when Evangelicals bash Gays and so worldly when the other side embraces them? Could it be that they are both wrong! In LGBT congregations the wrongness of the position is so apparent; they openly allow and advertise their sin. On the other hand, in the “Gay bashing” congregations, […]
