Welcome to my “watchman on the wall” page.
As Christians, Scripture commands us to be on our guard (Acts 20:28; 2 Timothy 4:15; 2 Peter 3:17) and hold fast to sound doctrine (1 Timothy 4:6; 6:3; 2 Timothy 4:3; and Titus 1:9; 2:1). We read the warnings about false teachers and false doctrine in Scripture (Acts 20:28-30; 2 Peter 2:1-3; c.f. 1 Timothy 4:1,2; 2 Thessalonians 2:11,12; 2 Timothy 4:3,4). And then the most important warnings from Jesus found in Matthew 24:4-8 (c.f. Mark 13:5-8; Luke 21:8-12). And then there is Peter (2 Peter 2:1-3)
Today we are witnessing heretical movements gaining footholds in many churches, and maybe even your church. Movements like theological liberalism, the Prosperity gospel, and the Emergent church, have all gained footholds over the last several years. These movements have opened the gates for new trojan horses like the New Apostolic Reformation (Dominion theology, Seven Mountain Mandate), new age practices (contemplative or centering prayer, labyrinth walking, yoga, Eastern forms of meditation, etc). Then in just recent times, Progressive Christianity with its rejection of anything biblical, has ushered in the deconstruction of many peoples’ faith. Could this be the apostasy that was foretold in 1 Timothy 4:1-2 (c.f. 2 Thessalonians 2:11)
The things wreaking havoc on the churches today are these false movements, erroneous applications of Scripture that bring the glory of God down to a level that denigrates the holiness of God. We are seeing pastors rejecting an orthodox view of the Trinity, rejecting the deity of Jesus in His earthly ministry, and rejecting the inerrancy and authority of Scripture. Christian music is encouraging the misapplication of Scripture, which is wreaking havoc in many evangelical churches, to where it appears the gatekeepers (pastors) are blind to it or just don’t have the backbone to confront it.
Well, enough is enough! We are confronting it here on this page.
This is page will be growing with links, audio, video and writings from myself and others on what we are seeing going on in the church. Check out the resources below and look for more as this page grows.
If you have any questions or any good resources to help build this page, we are willing to look at them and consider them. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will check them out.

Christian Ministries on the Front Lines

Christian Answers for the New Age (CANA)– Are you exploring different paths that claim to lead to truth or to holistic spirituality? Or maybe you are wondering about the supernatural. If you are exploring or just mildly curious, please check out the information on this site. Be open to it and see for yourself what is here. Don’t let any preconceived ideas be a barrier. Your exploration may lead to something interesting. To read her story, click on “Marcia’s Story.”
Midwest Christian Outreach – mission of Midwest Christian Outreach is to give clear answers, and a solid defense of the orthodox biblical faith, to all types of unbelievers — atheists, agnostics, as well as members of cults and new religious groups such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, the International Churches of Christ, and so on.
Neil Shenvi – Whether you’re a Christian seeking a better understanding of the evidence for Christianity, an agnostic who isn’t sure what he believes, or a committed atheist, I hope you’ll find this site helpful. Neil is one of the foremost experts on critical theory, critical race theory and all the social issues that are attacking absolute morals and truth over the last five years.
Berean Ministries White Papers on Social Justice Christianity – Do not be fooled by professing Christians who prefer either “progressive Christian” or “social justice Christian” to evangelical. It matters not what trendy terms people use to describe themselves, a progressive by any other name is still a liberal. So it should not come as a surprise to learn that some PC’s are avowed Marxists.
Good Fight Ministries – A ministry that equips Christians with biblical Truth, exposes the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11), and maintains a heart to win souls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Good Fight Ministries specializes in apologetics, discernment, theology, Bible prophecy, end times, and exposing the enemy’s tactics within pop culture and the entertainment industry which lead people away from the biblical God of the Bible.
On Solid Rock Resources – OSR is a Christian discernment site to help those who wish to research current trends in the Church, Christian teachers, the cults, abortion, creation-evolution debate, heresy, occult practices, social justice, spiritual warfare, yoga, and much more. In order to become discerning, you must have good information at your fingertips and the time and patience to do the necessary research. The goal for every Christian is to eliminate aberrant and heretical teaching and all that this includes form Christ’s church. The only way for this to happen is for each of us to become a Berean. So with this in mind, those who love the Lord Jesus must “contend [fight in its defense] for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 1:3)
