According to Christianity Today and World Magazine, Compassion International sued Teen Mania for breach of contract after failing to follow through on Child Sponsorship advertising last year. Teen Mania then refused to refund CI’s invested $160,000.
Teen Mania is said to have disregarded the suit resulting in the Court awarding Compassion International the full amount plus court and attorney fees.
World Magazine reports that a warrant has now been issued for the arrest of Ron Luce.
|TV charlatan, Steve Munsey, is proclaiming his annual “charis-magic indulgence” heresy that Yom Kippur is God’s special holy day for christians to get healed of cancer, see children saved and supernaturally get out of debt!
How is this miraculous advent possible? Simply follow the charlatan’s gnostic secret formula to send a BIG financial donation to him today and instantly this financial transaction will merit with Christ the purchase of grace that releases your “Kingdom Panacea”.
The Apostle Peter confronted this heresy in Acts 8 when he and John went down to Samaria:
“ vs 23 Peter said to him,”to hell with you and your money! How dare you think you could buy you the gift of God! [phillps translation]
So I join the spirit of Peter and declare Anathema on Steve Munsey and his hellish acts of Simony!
“…He recently announced on evangelist Benny Hinn’s This Is Your Day program: “You’re not going to become a millionaire. You’re going to become a billionaire! But you must move now!”
The secret to obtaining this miracle? You must believe that God bestows special answers to prayer on Yom Kippur, the most important day on the Jewish calendar. And to unlock this blessing, you must bring a big offering in both hands. Suggested donation: $300.
Most casual channel-surfers who hear Munsey’s slick sales pitch will quickly detect that something funky is going on behind the curtain. The Chicago-based pastor is selling spiritual blessings with the same hypnotic skills of a used car salesman. What’s tragic is that millions of Christians who should have the discernment to know better are being duped by this circus sideshow.”
Days after the Ashley Madison site was hacked, A pastor,seminary professor,husband and father of two commits suicide. John Gibson’s name was on the illicit “Life’s To Short-Have An Affair” adultery site. In his suicide note, he referenced depression and Ashley Madison.
A list is being circulated here in La Grange that purportedly has a host of local names which includes friends, professionals and at least one defrocked Pastor.
It seems that adultery is much like pornography,the seductive enticement is the promise of absolute anonymity. Pragmatic rationalization fails to consider the inspired writing of scripture,” Be sure your sin will find you out” along with the relational pain it leaves in it’s wake.
This is one of the most powerful, articulate, courageously unashamed-“politically incorrect” ads I have ever seen! With every precise word, Marcus Luttrell speaks “truth” for me and millions of others who are the true AMERICANS! Now obey Jesus and go buy a GUN.
Ed Stetzer estimates 400 ministry leaders will be exposed. We may be seriously shocked as the roll out continues. Click the highlight to read Sproul Jr confess in his own words.
Ligonier Ministries has suspended R. C. Sproul Jr. until July 2016 due to his admission that he visited the adultery matchmaking website Ashley Madison.
Ligonier was founded by his father, R. C. Sproul Sr., who still serves as board chair. The younger Sproul is one of the ministry’s teaching fellows, and is rector and chair of philosophy and theology at the ministry’s Reformation Bible College. He previously edited the ministry’s magazine, Tabletalk.
In a blog post this morning, Sproul Jr. said he accessed the site “in a moment of weakness, pain, and from an unhealthy curiosity. … My goal was not to gather research for critical commentary, but to fan the flames of my imagination.
“First, I felt the grace of fear. Second, I felt the grace of shame. I was there long enough to leave an old email address. And within minutes I left, never to return,” he wrote. “I did not sign up for their service or interact with any clients. I have always remained faithful to my wife even after her passing.” (His wife died of cancer in 2011.)
Two weeks ago, a group identifying itself as “The Impact Team” released 25 gigabytes of stolen data from Ashley Madison, including millions of users’ account information.
Sproul Jr. wrote, “The grace of God’s judgment bore its fruit, and by His grace I repented of my sin. By His grace, I have also received His forgiveness, the outworking of His love. Prophetic providence had done its good office. Jesus died for this sin, but there are still earthly consequences.
“With the revelation of the hack has come the revelation of my sin. I recently informed the board of Ligonier Ministries, which has handled the matter internally, having suspended me until July 1, 2016,” he wrote. “I also informed my presbytery which is also handling the matter internally. And now the world is informed. My sin, sadly, has impacted those who are innocent—my colleagues, friends, and family. I have and will continue to seek their forgiveness. I covet your prayers.”
Church leadership today is in a serious crisis! After national fall out from the Duggar confession, there appears to be a continuing roll out of names of other leaders who are alleged to have secretly committed the “High Crime of Treason” against the crown rights of King Jesus.
Ed Stetzer shares an informed observation in his recent article entitled,” My Pastor is on the Ashley Madison List”.
“..Christian leaders and families are facing devastating revelation and the after-effects of public sin.
Based on my conversations with leaders from several denominations in the U.S. and Canada, I estimate that at least 400 church leaders (pastors, elders, staff, deacons, etc.) will be resigning Sunday. This is a significant moment of embarrassment for the church—and it should be.”
Stetzer is the Executive Director of LifeWay Research and a prolific author, holding two masters degrees and two doctorates. He also serves as Visiting Professor of Research and Missiology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Visiting Research Professor at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
