In April 1521 Martin Luther was summoned before Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms :"(Diet means , Meeting. Worms is a German city south of Frankfurt.)": to recant. It was there that he uttered his famous words:I consider myself convicted by the testimony of Holy Scripture, which is my basis; my conscience is captive to the Word of God. :"(http://www.christianitytoday.com/ch/news/2002/apr12.html)":

The Rev. Robert H. Schuller has been ousted from the board of directors at the Crystal Cathedral, the Orange County megachurch he built into a televised empire after getting his start preaching from the roof of a drive-in theater, his son said Sunday night.
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. (2 Pe. 2:1)
Moriel recently received links to an author's website for one of his books which, among other things, purports to have deciphered the true meaning of "666". Because Jacob's latest book on the Antichrist (Shadows of the Beast) is about to come out, it was suggested that he provide a biblical response to this specific assertion. But when we looked at the rest of the website and the other books authored, we quickly realized this was not simply the case of a brother in the Lord who was making a mistake in earnest about the mark of the Beast. His other writings were so contra-scriptural to the basic truths of biblical Christianity that we can consider him nothing less than an outright heretic regardless of what he posits about End Times issues. No one should be surprised that his notions of the meaning of "666" are bizarre when his ideas of God's salvific plan are nothing short of heresy. Why bother responding to an error in the handling of prophecy when there is no hope until they correct the most egregious errors in their faith?

In your annual conference you have passed a policy calling for a boycott of goods from "illegal" Israeli West Bank settlements".You claim this is not anti-Semitic. But how else do you explain this strange obsession with Israel?

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
There is a frightening phenomenon that I have observed lately. I have been seeing the unhappy spectacle of young people, between their teens and early thirties, reared in the evangelical subculture, yet Ã‚Â denying Christ.
Well, here you go. The very same videos with which Christians flooded my email celebrating the imminent Return of Christ are the very same ones being credited by non-believers as pointing to Maitreya's arrival in this article. Just in case you haven't heard, this quote from the article explains who Maitreya is: "Many now expect the return of their awaited Teacher, whether they call him the Christ, Messiah, the fifth Buddha, Krishna, Kalki Avatar or the Imam Mahdi." Bible-believing Christians who understand the times in which we live know this "Teacher" to be nothing less than the ultimate Antichrist.
Die wildernis van gister en nou.
"Want ek wil nie hÃƒÂª, broeders, dat julle nie sou weet nie dat ons vaders almal onder die wolk was en almal deur die see deurgegaan het, en almal in Moses gedoop is in die wolk en in die see, en almal dieselfde geestelike spys geÃƒÂ«et het, en almal dieselfde geestelike drank gedrink het, want hulle het gedrink uit 'n geestelike rots wat gevolg het, en die rots was Christus. Maar God het in die meeste van hulle geen welgevalle gehad nie, want hulle is neergeslaan in die woestyn"¦ Maar al hierdie dinge het hulle oorgekom as voorbeelde en is opgeskrywe as 'n waarskuwing aan ons op wie die eindes van die eeue gekom het." (1 Kor.10: 1-5,11)
