“You have plowed wickedness, you have reaped injustice. You have eaten the fruit of lies.” Hosea 10:13a
America has been on a spiritual slide into darkness for many years. At first barely perceptible, the slide is now apparent to all but the most demonically oppressed and possessed who are blinded to the grievous condition we find ourselves in today. Unfortunately this blindness includes many who consider themselves Christians.
Although I could chronicle myriad examples from decades ago let me start with some of the most recent outrageous and wicked examples of this spiritual slide. Exhibit number one is the Kathy Griffin stunt concerning President Trump that was immediately condemned by most people. The recent apostasy of Hank Hanegraaff into Eastern Orthodoxy and compromise of James White with Islam provide more proof. Next consider the shooting of Congressman Scalise and other staffers in Washington DC. As a last example I offer you a video game that is set to be released soon called Far Cry 5. All of these seemingly disparate examples are tied together by the verse in Hosea cited above.
In what can be described as another wildly misguided missive poorly aimed and good only for virtue signaling to a cadre of reality-oblivious followers, William Dwight McKissic, an African-American Texas pastor, drafted a resolution that was considered at the annual Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Phoenix this week. What was misguided about his resolution? Simply this – McKissic sees in the so-called Alt Right, a source of unparalleled evil and hatred such that any rational individual would condemn it.
The Christian Post writer Michael Gryboski states in his write-up about the Resolution that, “The Alt Right is a political movement generally associated with white nationalism and known for launching intense attacks on ideological enemies on social media.” Oh the evil of such individuals who would oppose other people’s viewpoints along ideological lines! Note to Gryboski – this IS political discourse in America today. Social Media IS a political battlefield occupied by people of all ideologies including black supremacists, Hispanic and Latino supremacists, and every other ethnicity who has a grievance to advance.
At 7:00pm EDT tonight, we are excited to be rejoined by WND News Editor, Leo Hohmann. We regard spending time with a news man of Leo’s caliber and quality of work to be a sincere blessing, not only for our viewers and listeners, but for all of us at Team Hagmann as well.
Since October of 2016 I have been blessed to appear on The Hagmann & Hagmann Report three times as a guest, once for a special report, and even once as a co-host! Tonight will be my sixth appearance on this critical broadcasting venue for the Christian remnant. I will be joined by Remnant Radio Network co-host Chris Baucom to discuss technology, prophecy, and how to avoid pitfalls in our perspective on the developments that are slated to arrive within the next decade.
Driverless cars, the internet of things, bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, CRISPR, EMP, and many other critical topics will be on the menu from 9:00pm – 10:00pm tonight (Thursday 05.18.2017).
The following story appeared in a recent edition of Leadership Journal.
“A traveler, between flights at an airport, went to a lounge and bought a small package of cookies and a newspaper. The woman found an empty seat in the gate area and sat down next to a man reading a magazine. After a couple of minutes she became aware of a rustling noise. From behind her paper she peeked to see the man sitting next to her helping himself to her cookies. After the initial shock she decided not to make a scene so she reached over and took a cookie for herself.
A minute or two passed and then came more rustling. The woman peeked from behind her paper and sure enough, the man was helping himself to another cookie. Again the woman decided not to make a scene and instead reached over and took two cookies for herself. This same process occurred several more times until there was one cookie left. The man broke the cookie in two pieces, ate half, and slid half over to the woman, got up and left.
The woman couldn’t believe the audacity of the man and was still fuming over the whole affair when she boarded her flight. After takeoff the woman needed something in her purse and when she opened it up the first thing she saw was her package of unopened cookies.”
Our assumptions can be misleading more often than we want to admit!
