Moriel Ministries and Jacob Prasch take extreme exception to the long statement highly critical of Chuck Smith, various Calvary Chapels, Roger Oakland and Dave Hunt by Richard Abanes of Saddleback Church in reaction to their expressed position regarding the Purpose Driven agenda of Rick Warren. Mr. Abanes wrote as an apologist for Rick Warren and the Saddleback Purpose Driven ethos.
Jacob Zuma is deputy President of South Africa and the newly directed leader of the African National Congress, the political party of Nelson Mandella, Desmond Tutu, and Thabo Mbeki.
Zuma is now slated to become the next President of South Africa, although he is a bigamist with multiple wives and is under indictment for corruption amidst allegations of racketeering and money laundering. He is also ordained as a minister of religion in a church. As head of the South African AIDS policy, Zuma testified at his rape trial that "although he had sex with the HIV infected woman he was accused of raping, he did not contractÃ‚ HIV because heÃ‚ took a shower". The following newspaper article from Botswana reveals the racist political and social mentalityÃ‚ of some supporting Mr. Zuma.

The government of British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is moving to abolish anti-blasphemy laws that would allow the open blasphemy of God, Jesus Christ, and Christianity by anti Christian groups such as radical Islamists and militant homosexuals and lesbians.
Once more arch Calvinist Robert Morey is engaging in the silly antics of what in the estimation of many people he does best - not tell the truth.
I did indeed confront Robert Morey in an airport loungeÃ‚ near London. I was in the company of my daughter (and my lawyer). My hair had been recently cut, and I found his web site remarks that I was/am "fat" rather hideous coming fromÃ‚ someone so obese that heÃ‚ himself resorted to weight reduction cosmetic surgeryÃ‚ (he is an amateur chef who appeared to much lavish his own cooking). As all who know me realize, IÃ‚ do constantly battle with weight as a side effect of medication I am forced to take for a serious neck injury, but at my plumpest I never approached his monstrous sizeÃ‚ nor ever resorted to any form of stomach mesh, tummy tuck, liposuction, or intestinal by-pass or other surgical remedy as he did. I do not see why he became so personal in hisÃ‚ tirade given his own well known medical history and the identity he established for himself as "the fat man behind the pulpit".
David Instone Brewer, a scholar of some note at Tyndale House, Cambridge , UK specialising in rabbinics with an academic interest in The Jewish background of The New Testament, published the article in Christianity Today, Ã‚ October 2007 editionÃ‚ entitled "WHAT GOD HAS JOINED"Ã‚ whose contentsÃ‚ were in part opposed by John Piper. We preface our own response by pointing out that Moriel regards this magazine itself as having departed from biblical orthodoxy in general, but after a request we believe this article deserves our comments.Ã‚ David Instone Brewer attempts to argue for a New Testament basis for divorce based on a rabbinic understanding of Exodus 21:10-11. WhileÃ‚ holding no admirationÃ‚ at all for John Piper, but a fair amount of regard for David Instone Brewer (at least from anÃ‚ an academic perspective), we respectfully disagree with hisÃ‚ conclusions.
This letter to President Bush by alleged Evangelical leaders predictably ignores the plight of Christians persecuted throughout the Arab and Islamic world. It unsurprisingly avoids the pro Israel views of Arab Evangelicals such as Walid Shoebat and Joseph Farah.
It also avoids the issue that territorial concessions already made by Israel, under pressure from the oil interest controlled Bush administration, only resulted in Moslems using the forfeited territory to continue the persecution of Arab Christians, the jihad against Israel and The West and created an Iranian-controlled Islamic base in Gaza and by George Bush Sr. in Lebanon.

Christian Greetings in The Risen Lord.
I am grateful to have been copied this as I am named in it, and therefore I assume I have a right to cordially respond.
While I speak only for myself, it appears that there is a misunderstanding of my position and that of Pastor Philip Powell and of Brother Ed Barclay. I use the term " misunderstanding" intentionally as a matter of Christian grace. If I were to use the term "misrepresentation", that in effect would implicitly convey the charge of deliberate lying, and I hope this is not the case.
Dear Mr Lancaster,
I write you from Australia where I just read a reprinted article from Elim"s DIRECTION magazine last November (2006) republished by permission in a local Christian publication circulated in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.
In the article you challenge the agenda set by the world infiltrating the church under the banner ofÃ‚ "contemporary culture" etc. In your article you warn of the erroneous deceptions of post-modernism (the basis of "The Emergent Church"),Ã‚ the usurping of biblical counseling with pop psychology, and sound-biting as a substitute for biblical exposition.
A Hypocrite Among Hypocrites? A Liar Among Liars? Or Is He Both?
Most Black African Anglican Christians are conservative Evangelicals looking to the Arch Bishop of Lagos, Nigeria as their spiritual shepherd, not Desmond Tutu. The true leader of African Anglicans. among other issues. is concerned with the plight of the more than one million Nigerian Christians that have been killed by the Moslems in Nigeria in the last generation (which Tutu characteristically ignores), and he decidedly opposes the ordination of homosexuals and lesbians into the Anglican clergy (which Tutu supports). In Africa among his own people, Tutu is in fact a politician who uses the robes of the clergy as a mere publicity tool, and who pretends a concern for human rights, protesting on behalf of the cause of Palestinian Moslems when in fact he is silent in the face of the genocidal extermination of his fellow Black African Christians by the Moslems from Sudan to Somalia, to Northern Nigeria.
To The Editor " “ International Herald Tribune
I have never read a more distorted misrepresentation of events in Gaza than the absurd litany of half truths and revisionism ignoring militant Islamic aggression after the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza failed to stop the attacks on Israel by Patrick Seale. In his perverted world, Islamic terrorist aggressors are victims, and victims defending themselves are aggressors.
