What the Bible says about light and seed

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.

The Good Seed and the Weeds “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

Rick Warren´s capitulation to Rome


4 comments:

  1. Part I:
    Hi Elizabeth, thanks for posting these two videos. It´s a good thing that there are stalwart, fearless men of God like Dr. White left to defend the faith.

    I was raised as a Catholic. In Algeria where I was born, we had a saying that French Catholics from Algeria are more catholic than the pope. No wonder, Augustine was bishop at Hippo a roman city not far from the catholic boarding school that I attended for 2 years. I served the mass in Latin every morning as an altar boy. I got into big trouble when I started questioning the teachings and practices of the church.
    Being in an all-boys schools, you can´t even imagine what kind of punishment they inflicted on us when we were barely 7 years old, along with the perversity known to be practiced by men who were supposed to represent Jesus and exemplify his love and grace, especially to the little children whom he loved so much.

    I used to go every year on pilgrimage to important shrines of the Virgin and ascended countless stairs on my bare knees to the top where the cathedral was. The OT forbids the practice of building shrines or temples on high hills because it´s a pagan practice. Buddhists for example go on pilgrimage climbing mountains on their knees to assuage their demon gods.

    My mother was a member of the “Blue Army of the Lady of Fatima” which is a militant arm of the RCC. I read her exclusive membership documents and the vows she signed on her membership card.

    I doubt that Rick Warren is ignorant of what is going on in high places. Dr. White was ironically generous in his use of Christian mercy in giving him the benefit of the doubt.
    To go back on Warren, I was aware of his departure first in 1984 when the Lord opened my eyes to my idolatry of being involved in the New Age and Hindu esoteric and occult teachings and restored me to the sheep fold.

    I asked him for the gift of discernment because I needed it so much to not go astray. This gift is not instinctual, or part of the feminine more developed sense of intuition. It certainly needs to be practiced and developed through our abiding in the vine and obedience to the Lord.

  2. Continued Part II:
    So when I read back in 1984 that Mr. Warren, before being a famous pastor and writer, had discovered a way to increase church membership, red flags went up immediately because the Lord Jesus said specifically in John 12:32 that” if I be lifted up from the earth , I will draw all people unto me”. Paul declared Romans 1:16: For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    I know how hard it is to try to warn people of the impending disaster that´s about to come and how it can be discouraging at times, especially when we know what the remedy is.

    But we have to encourage each other, using the gifts that the Holy Spirit bestows on us for the benefit of others.

    We won´t have to be wait too long now, so let´s us work while it is light and day, because the day is coming when we will not be able to work any more.

    I have no dream, but I have a sure hope and a faith that is based on the truth and reality that Jesus is the anchor that keeps me from drifting and the Rock on which I can stand firmly when everything else around me is quicksand.

    I hope that the Holy Spirit will continue inspiring you to write, encourage and exhort us.
    NB. Elizabeth Elliot is one of the few women that inspire and encouraged me for a number of years. I was a young child when I read in a French magazine about Nate Saint and Jim Elliot and the Aucas. It really impressed me for the rest of my life.
    Jean-Louis.

  3. It was "not for nothing" that Warren was chosen to give the inaugural benediction when Obama was elected. Meaningful and significant to the specific time in history in which we find ourselves.

  4. You got that right! Keep your discernment skills sharp so we will continue to warn our brothers and sisters of the danger ahead. As long as the enemy feels he has the lead, he can reinforce his strongholds, regroup and rearm while pretending to be inactive or on the retreat and prepare for the next attack.

    All we have to do is observe the strategies of the visible powers in the actions of the Palestinian Authority, the Turkish government, the Russians the new alliances formed between previous adversaries and you can understand how the chess game is played.
