Extreme makeovers are all over the place. Everything from skinny guy to muscle man to an A to a D cup, to being a Bruce and deciding to be Caitlyn. It seems that nothing is off the table anymore. But when talking about becoming a Christian; is it a transformation or a conversion?

Yet another adventure in bad preaching.
Pastor Rusty George of Real Life Church in Santa Clarita California wants you to have great relationships and not be a hater on Facebook. It’s all yours “if you” will only do…Then God will help you have a great life – even on Facebook. The quote from Rusty George can be found here:
Just slow down and chill out. That was the topic from David Cobia of Pacific Crossroads Church in Santa Monica Ca. In reality this sermon was a re-hash of Dallas Willard’s book, The Spirit of the Disciplines. It was all the rage in the 90’s with the emphasis on spiritual formation. But is this what a Christian sermon should be about?
The Call Azusa is supposed to be all about our deeply divided world and the need of the greatest miracle of all; love. If you agree with that statement you have been deceived. This is a manifestation of the false New Apostolic Reformation movement that is sweeping the country and it is demonic at its roots. If you are involved in any way get out. Find a church where they are about the Father originating, the Son mediating and the Spirit completing all things.
What ever happened to real Christ centered, cross focused preaching? Sermons preached by pastors who took time to study and meditate on the text to be preached and had the confidence in it to trust that the Holy Spirit would speak through them, even as frail, weak vessels. It seems that Big Box evangelicalism is drifting further and further away from the very essence of what it means to be truly evangelical and protestant. This is where we need revival, folks.
Banning Liebscher says that you are a “game changer”. Is that really the case? This teaching is nothing more than warmed over old school Dominion Theology, packaged for young people who don’t know any better. This is the wave of the future for evangelicals and must be avoided at all cost.It is flat out biblical error and must be called out.
