Love of the Truth and Cognitive Dissonance

If you do not love the truth, you will perish. And, when I say ‘perish’, I don’t just mean physical death.

If you do not love the truth, you will perish for all eternity.

And yes, the truth really is that important.

However, I will assume that you have already discovered the truth, and that you will be welcomed into the arms of our loving Father, when this life is over. So, I will turn our attention to the life that lies before you.

If you love the truth, you might live long enough to serve God to the fullest, and that is what we want.

For those who do not love the truth, they are left with Cognitive Dissonance and destruction.

Love of the Truth and Cognitive Dissonance

Cognitive Dissonance is defined this way:

the state of having inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, or attitudes, especially as relating to behavioural decisions and attitude change.

That’s not completely accurate, so here’s another definition:

In psychology, cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort experienced by an individual who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values at the same time, performs an action that is contradictory to one or more beliefs, ideas or values, or is confronted by new information that conflicts with existing beliefs, ideas, or values.

Leon Festinger’s theory of cognitive dissonance focuses on how humans strive for internal consistency. An individual who experiences inconsistency (dissonance) tends to become psychologically uncomfortable, and is motivated to try to reduce this dissonance—as well as actively avoid situations and information likely to increase it.

 – Wikipedia, Cognitive Dissonance

Here’s another dimension from ChangingMinds.org:

This is the feeling of uncomfortable tension which comes from holding two conflicting thoughts in the mind at the same time.

Dissonance increases with:

The importance of the subject to us.

How strongly the dissonant thoughts conflict.

Our inability to rationalize and explain away the conflict.

Dissonance is often strong when we believe something about ourselves and then do something against that belief. If I believe I am good but do something bad, then the discomfort I feel as a result is cognitive dissonance.

Cognitive dissonance is a very powerful motivator which will often lead us to change one or other of the conflicting belief or action. The discomfort often feels like a tension between the two opposing thoughts. To release the tension we can take one of three actions:

Change our behavior.

Justify our behavior by changing the conflicting cognition.

Justify our behavior by adding new cognitions.

Dissonance is most powerful when it is about our self-image. Feelings of foolishness, immorality and so on (including internal projections during decision-making) are dissonance in action.

If an action has been completed and cannot be undone, then the after-the-fact dissonance compels us to change our beliefs. If beliefs are moved, then the dissonance appears during decision-making, forcing us to take actions we would not have taken before.

Cognitive dissonance appears in virtually all evaluations and decisions and is the central mechanism by which we experience new differences in the world. When we see other people behave differently to our images of them, when we hold any conflicting thoughts, we experience dissonance.

Dissonance increases with the importance and impact of the decision, along with the difficulty of reversing it. Discomfort about making the wrong choice of car is bigger than when choosing a lamp.

I hope that you are beginning to notice something here. If you replace ‘cognitive dissonance’ with the words ‘feelings of guilt’, you’ll find that the there is a perfect match.

Having said that, I believe that this ‘cognitive dissonance’ is more than just ‘guilt’. To me, it’s the mental effort to change our view of reality to avoid feelings of guilt.

Here’s another definition psychology.about.com:

People tend to seek consistency in their beliefs and perceptions. So what happens when one of our beliefs conflicts with another previously held belief? The term cognitive dissonance is used to describe the feelings of discomfort that result from holding two conflicting beliefs. When there is a discrepancy between beliefs and behaviors, something must change in order to eliminate or reduce the dissonance.

Choosing Fantasy Over Reality

I’m talking about this because I see ‘cognitive dissonance’ everywhere.

Why?

Because people are choosing fantasy over reality.

The truth is harsh, so people retreat into fantasy. The more they run into ‘the truth’ the more they retreat into fantasy. And, when they reach the point where they can no longer retreat, they lash out in violence and anger at the person – or idea – that is forcing them to confront reality.

Shrillness Is A Sign

Notice the shrillness of those who are saying that everything is fine, that there is nothing to worry about. As it becomes harder and harder to say this, the more agitated that shrillness becomes. Eventually the person stops his/her ears and runs away – or, attacks you.

I am discovering this everywhere, on every topic. The rapture. Predestination. Salvation. Finance. Economy. Precious metals. Israel. Patriotism. The Bible. Guns. Expatriation. Islam. Judaism. Marriage. Entertainment. Church. Symbols. God.

In fact, look at the ‘tag cloud’ to the right (on the website). Every one of those tags is connected to a MASSIVE amount of cognitive dissonance. And, the bigger the tag, the bigger the dissonant thinking among those who do not love the truth.

Love Of Lies Will Destroy You

When Paul was speaking to the church at Thessaloniki (aka, Thessalonica) about the Last Days, he said this:

And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

 – 2 Thessalonians 2:10

Let me add a corollary to that verse:

If you do not love the truth, you will embrace dangerous fantasies.

Look around you. There are people who have embraced a host of awful fantasies that are eating them alive. They may have been somewhat rational when they entered their fantasy world, but look at them ten or twenty years later.

Do You Suffer From Cognitive Dissonance?

As we see our world destroyed around us, we see people everywhere embracing their sin in a vain attempt to call it ‘good’. Unfortunately, their conscience knows better and will push them to see what is real. That internal struggle will eventually destroy them, but not before they try and destroy you.

So, let me ask you about your own ‘cognitive dissonance’.

Are you embracing a fantasy, instead of reality?

The next time that you get angry when someone tells you what they believe to be the truth, that’s a sign that you are probably suffering from ‘cognitive dissonance’.

Over the last few weeks, I have been seeing precious brothers in Christ engaged in this ‘cognitive dissonance’ when I approach them about Nathan Leal.

 

Nathan Leal

Many of you have been wanting me to lay out the results of my investigation into the situation about Nathan Leal. I understand that, and I would love to be done with this, myself. Unfortunately, every week shows me another layer of corruption – as well as ‘cognitive dissonance’ among our brothers.

Allow me to give you a ‘short’ summary.

To be honest with you, I have been hoping to find some sin on Nathan’s part, because it would make my job easier, as I attempt to bring reconciliation. I am lazy at heart, and I always want the easy way out.

However, I have found no sin on Nathan’s part. In every case and instance, both publicly and in private, I have found Nathan Leal to be honest, forthright and humble. He is not guilty of ANY of the charges leveled against him.

Please let me repeat that:

Nathan Leal is NOT GUILTY of ANY of the charges leveled against him.

Up until this past week, I had been thinking that the largest part of the guilt fell upon the shoulders of Ted Broer. To my dismay, I have found that this is not the case.

And yes, the proper word is DISMAY.

I am incredibly grieved that there is another name that is at the heart of this. This person lies within the organization bringing about the HearTheWatchmen conference in Dallas, March 18-20, 2016.

I do not believe that the speakers at this conference understand the true nature of this person. If they did, I do not think that they would have signed up to be a part of it.

Unfortunately for him, some of those speakers are beginning to find out and have been threatened by him. You will notice that three people have disappeared from the original roster of speakers.

I believe that you can do the math.

Let me be clear that I would not have known about this person, unless he had publicly attacked me, making false claims. When he did that, I began to see a deeper corruption at work. And then, some of you stepped forward – privately and publicly – with important information.

I am very upset by what I have uncovered.

You will notice that the research section below is a fraction of what it normally is. It is hard to do research when I’m that upset – in addition to the time that it has taken to uncover the facts of this situation.

Some of you will wonder if all of this effort is worth it. I believe that it is, because corruption within the Body of Christ must not be allowed. People have already come forward, talking about how damaging Ted Broer’s New Age talk has been to them, and the people that they love.

Well, there’s worse than Ted Broer.

Unfortunately, I need the time to organize it all in my thoughts, so that I can present the facts clearly.

Allow me to also leave a message to the person at the heart of all this:

Do not threaten me with a lawsuit. I will go public with any and all communication that you and your representatives make with me.

If the person at the heart of this case, repents and resigns, I will do my best to soften the blow. I do not wish anyone to feel hurt, not even those who are guilty.

But, I love the truth, and I will tell the truth.

This is the week’s research, such as it is. There are two spiritual battles that my wife and I are in, and that has consumed my attention and diverted me from doing the amount of research that I consider to be normal.

 

ARTICLES OF NOTE

These are the articles that defy individual categorization. They often cross categories. They often have special importance on their own.

Project Monarch: Nazi Mind Control – The Evolution of Project MKULTRA

I agree with Steve Quayle that this is an important primer for those who wish to know more about some of the worst evils at the heart of what is going on right now. The men who launched these programs are but the tip of the iceberg. The darkest, most horrifying evils known to man are being practiced behind closed doors. In Amerika.

How much mind control is going on today, is hard to ascertain. However, if the past is any guide, the project has expanded exponentially and with greater sophistication.

Up to this point, mind control has been a very expensive, labor-intensive process. The question is whether technology has allowed the creation of mind-controlled slaves to be automated.

I just do not know, but I believe that the answer will quickly become “YES”.

This is just another reason why the Lord must stop us, before it is too late.

To quote John the Apostle, in the penultimate verse of the Bible:

He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

(BTW, ‘penultimate’ means ‘second to last’)

With all the terrible things that must come before His Return, I embrace them because those terrible events will cleanse this world of the evil done amongst us.

Million of Americans Could Starve to Death Without Divine Intervention | Dave Hodges

Throughout history, starvation has always been a real possibility. Yet, we have been consistent in our decision to ignore that threat, when that threat has receeded far enough into the past.

Well, we are now vulnerable to yet another epidemic of starvation in America, and this is a very serioius threat that I hope you treat with the apropriate level of concern.

Well, if the Lord doesn’t step in, this century really COULD be the very last for humanity. The good thing is that we know that there is another thousand years ahead for us, because the Lord WILL step in and ‘fix their wagon’.

Journalist Reveals Tactics Brainwashing Industry Uses to Manipulate the Public

Good article, and something that you MUST keep in mind. You are being lied to. ANYONE could be lying to you.

Even ME. I could be lying to you.

In fact, I could be attempting to gain your trust by making statements like that.

Sincerity really isn’t a true indicator of truth. But, the brainwashers know how to seem sincere as they lie to you.

Yup. I would say that the CIA has completed their task.

Flat Earth – Fake Flights Claim 100% Debunked – YouTube

Several weeks ago, I touched off a firestorm of debate by claiming that the flight times between Los Angeles and Tokyo were not that much different than the flight times between Sydney and Santiago.

A pilot who flies that rout is a reader and chimed in to confirm that the flight exists and that my facts were correct.

Well, here we have a video with yet another bit of proof.

I know that I will not convince you, but the Earth is NOT FLAT!!

Of course, the purpose of the exercise was to demonstrate that there was a mode of thinking that you can find in many, many different groups of people. I call that mode of thinking ‘Flat Earther’, because you cannot convince a ‘Flat Earther’ that the Earth is a sphere or a globe. You just cannot do it.

The same goes for socialists, racists, Atheists, evolutionists, Pre-Tribbers, etc. They all have exactly the same stubborn mode of thinking as ‘Flat Earthers’. There is NOTHING that you can do to convince them. Period.

So… are you a Flat Earther?

Those of you who are wondering about Peak Oil, you need to listen to this. This guy is an expert of experts. HE KNOWS.

Exclusive: Dallas Fed Quietly Suspends Energy Mark-To-Market On Default Contagion Fears

This article may be a bit difficult for some of you to decipher. Lots of analysis here that will require a financial education to work through. So, let me translate it for you:

Oil companies are going bankrupt, and the banks are lying about it.

Furthermore, those lies are worth billions of dollars. No, TENS of billions of dollars, and I’m wondering if the better answer is HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS of dollars. And, when you and I would be lucky to make more than a million dollars within our lifetimes, hundreds of billions is beyond our comprehension.

When all of that collapses, it will create a MASSIVE avalanche of financial trouble. Remember also the video that I posted about PRIVATE debt being the chief cause of financial collapse:

If you haven’t watched that video, you need to. This is serious, and no one is paying attention.

This is a little easier to read and understand. Of course, reading this will probably cause an anxiety attack if you own stocks or bonds.

The point is that the Federal Reserve has been making many of the same mistakes that the Federal Reserve made in the ’30s. And, I need to remind you that the 1930s were the Great Depression. And, I believe that we are about to enter an even GREATER Depression.

But, let me pause a bit and reflect on something that I just said.

I used the word, ‘mistakes’.

I’m not sure that this is the correct word.

Financial Crisis Worse Because It’s Global-Nomi Prins | Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog

Here’s a quote from the write-up for the interview:

So, will the coming financial crisis be worse than the 2008 meltdown? Prins explains, “Yes, it is worse because it is global. What happened in the subprime crisis, and I talked about this in an earlier book, “It Takes a Pillage,” the subprime crisis was primarily constructed by U.S. banks, and then, those toxic assets and bonds distributed throughout the world. For the most, part they were on a small amount of loans in the United States that were leveraged a lot. . . . Now, they have distributed that cheap money with loans on a global basis. That’s why oil contracting and the knock on effect with defaults with oil companies throughout the world has a far greater impact. It’s not just on bank balance sheets, but companies and how many jobs they will have to cut and how many factories they will have to close throughout the world. It relates to a greater economic depression than the leverage of subprime loans did, but it also relates to the very same banks.”

The U.S. Is At The Center Of The Global Economic Meltdown

This is a good article, although his view of who/what/why this is happening is a bit simplistic, but the effects that he describes are completely accurate.

I also believe that his predictions are probably accurate as well. In one sense, I hope that those predictions are accurate, because it would explain why the US is not involved in attempting to stop Gog and Magog.

My suspicion has been an EMP attack, or some other form of attack. But, I vastly prefer a complete and utter financial collapse to those other scenarios.

We’ll see.

Cologne’s Mayor Henriette Reker, said that “under no circumstances” should the crimes be attributed to asylum seekers. Instead, she blamed the victims for the assaults.

Pope Francis: Countries that Take in Refugees Must Change

Message for the World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2016 (12 September 2015) (Letter from Pope Franky)

Here are some ominous quotes from this document, from the mouth of Pope Franky himself:

Public opinion also needs to be correctly formed, not least to prevent unwarranted fears and speculations detrimental to migrants.

THAT is an INCREDIBLY OMINOUS statement. This evil and vile pope is advocating the use of lies to ‘correctly form’ public opinion. This is outrageous and disgusting. If you embrace this pope, you are a fool.

Of course, you would not be reading this if you DID ’embrace this pope’.

I arrived at this missive from Pope Franky via Daniel Greenfield, and he said:

That last one is obviously the most ominous statement, but there is plenty of language here emphasizing the transformation of host societies. There is a failure to address the threat of migrants. Instead the only recognized threats are those of the host societies who reject migrants. There is also far too much talk about forming opinion, managing and regulating host societies and the need to change.

There is little to no acknowledgement of the inherent religious consequences of huge numbers of Muslims invading and settling in Europe. The words “Islam” and “Muslim” are never even mentioned.

You can find Daniel Greenfield’s article, here:

http://www.frontpagemag.com/point/261504/pope-francis-countries-take-refugees-must-change-daniel-greenfield

The lies and oppression are going to grow and grow. You MUST take action in the face of what is coming.

And, just to reiterate what Daniel Greenfield said, not one word about Islam or the Muslims are included in this letter.

  1. But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, 8 being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

    This along with so much other ‘leaven’ floating around out there has crippled Christians’ into wisdom-less, doubleminded and doubtful confused sheep bouncing off one another.
    So many are confused that they can’t hear the still small voice and are easily seduced by the marketing and business branch of Americanized, Patriot Christianity.

    I listened to Nathan’s messgae link at your web and I listened to the 3 hr. SQ and DL message on H&H for Jan 7th.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but not once was their business partner held accountable for putting a new age, false teacher and disseminate of lies accountable except to say ‘both side’ held guilt while targeting Nathan as responsible for the damage done.

    This is not just cognitive dissonance and blindness but wickedness on their part.

    I’ve spoken up because that is what I do.
    God has given me a small dose of boldness and timidity is not in my vocabulary at this very late hour.

    Maybe if I was advertising the SQ brand as ANP and CSS do, Steve would still be posting important messages to the body of Christ on his web site, then again maybe not ?

    I pray for all involved, but do not bow to any man, loving the Truth, the way and the Life more than I love any man or busine$$ partner.

    PS- I didn’t send you this list of the greedy Christian’s who have successfully fleeced the wisdom-less flock….
    and I do understand if you remove anything I’ve written that is too hard for soft ears, as the Lord leads you and all of us.

    • Hi Marcel,

      I agree with you.

      Having said that, I am trying to be as careful as I can about who is to blame and why. I believe that Steve and the Hagmanns have been blinded by their friendships. I understand that blindness, having been afflicted by it in the past.

      There has been private communication between me and some of the players which has given me some extra insight into their position. I understand their position and am sympathetic, even though I do not agree with it.

      We are to love the truth, more than ‘unity’ or our friends. If we sacrifice the truth for unity, then we have turned our back on God.

      Keep up the good work, Marcel. I am right there with you.

      Yours in Christ,

  2. I was listening again to Nathan’s audio regarding the lies that Ted told on Dave Hodges show, and I wanted to share this fact, that will show that Dave Hodges and Doug Hagmann are suffering from cognitive dissonance.

    Now, I’m a Registered Nurse, with a Bachelor’s Degree (four year degree) ,and have worked in a large hospital in many areas including medical, and surgical. I have worked with Cardiologists, Neurologists, surgeons, Family doctors,, etc.

    I never, ever, in 30+ years of this profession have heard the term “chakra” to describe anything to do with the heart or nervous system. Not once. So, Ted may have a degree in biochemistry, but I can assure you that “chakra” is not found in any of his textbooks. If he has a book that this term is used, I would love to know which one it is!

    So, when Hodges and the Hagmann’s say that Ted “misspoke”, then they are definitely suffering from cognitive dissonance. Both Dave and Doug have knowledge of medical terminology. Doug is a former EMT, and Dave has a psychology degree. They should know that Ted is using New Age terms, and that he was lying in his response to the complaints against him.

    Good article, John. Thank you, and I’m looking forward to the next one 🙂

    I’m not sure if you want me to post it, but this is the link to Nathan’s audio:

    • Hi Angel,

      Thank you for providing that recording. I also downloaded it for safekeeping, and I have been debating with myself over whether to publish it. But, I’m afraid that I need to.

      I’m glad that you have done so, here in the comment section.

      Unfortunately, Ted is the least of our concerns. He is merely a symptom of a much deeper problem:

      The organizers of the Hear The Watchmen conference.

      I call the chief guy ‘Three Mikes’, and he appears to be very bad news. At least two of his names are aliases, and by definition that is lying. And, I am uncovering other lies that he has been telling. How deep the lies go, is hard to tell.

      Thank you, Angel, for keeping watch.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Those of us who have listened and read Hodges for years also know that he has done many articles on cognitive dissonance.

      Even though some key players have been lied to what hurts me the most is that H & H were willing to ruin a long time friendship with Nathan (probably much longer than the one they had with Ted) and not stay neutral until they could get to the bottom of this whole thing.
      Many times they have had people on their show and the things taught were not refuted. It was hard to know what H &H beliefs were because they tended to agree with whoever was speaking at the time.
      This does not help new believers that have tuned in to listen.

      Since SQ has made public that Doug is not a Theologian then they should have one associated with the program to make sure that truth is taught. (I only say this because many see this as their Church) Or that if there are differences of interpretation and least makes some distinctions so people can further study on their own. David Lankford promotes himself as a Scriptorian…that is not to say he is a Theologian.
      Thanks for getting to the bottom of this so the body of Christ can be
      healed.

    • Hi Angel,

      I wonder if the term “chakra” is found in the naturopathic text books?

      Perhaps someone with more knowledge could address this issue.

      Blessings in Christ,
      Trudy

  3. Brother John: While I understand the distress this is causing you, be careful of the diversion from God’s tasks at hand. satan knows he can’t shut you up, so he’s trying to distract you. Review C.S. Lewis’ “The Screwtape Letters”. Ultimately, God sees and knows and He alone will defend both you and Nathan. We are praying for you and all involved. Stay in prayer, stay focused. When I am tempted to allow circumstances to overwhelm me and steal my joy, I remember an old quote (so old I don’t remember who said it), “Sing a Psalm and Spite the devil.” My favorite is What a Friend We Have in Jesus. Oh what needless pain we bear . . .
    God Blesses us with you – keep us on the path.

  4. You are NOT going to believe this…

    I was going to make a comment on last weeks post that you do one on cognitive dissonance!

    Wow… I’d better read it carefully.

  5. You are a good man, John ! Praise The Lord, Jesus.

    Thank you for digging into this matter surrounding the “Hear the Watchmen” conference and the backlash against Nathan and Donna. One question for you…Will you be sending out your articles and investigative findings to all in the Watchmen community and to all the current conference speakers? I think it is important that the speakers really know what they are getting involved with by being associated with that conference and the founder/organizer.

    RT

  6. Thank you for your words regarding Nathan! I have been grappling with whether to listen anymore or not. I do pray that you bring this to full light. Those of us who turn to youguys for spiritual light to be shone on these dark times appreciate the TRUTH! I too have been unable to find anything wrong with what Nathan did. I have prayed and prayed and prayed again and again about it. Thank you so much for taking a stand and please keep us informed as best you can!

  7. Thanks for this. This whole dissonance stuff, I can see why now Abba has been putting me through my paces. Ok, I get it the world is tanking and there are two Kingdoms revealing themselves, but I never really saw how this was playing out in my personal life. As children, we are programmed by our parents, other authority figures, our peers, the situations, circumstances in our lives, the messages the media is feeding, etc. Ok, I grew up during the seventies, went through my teens through the eighties, early adulthood in the nineties and here we are now. Everything I have learned thus far is being challenged. Everything. Even, perhaps most especially, how I view Abba. I have been blessed to be put into what feels like a cattle chute, pressure on every side, and am being forced to look at all the mixed messages, double standards, outright wrong messages, you get the picture, and it’s just like what you’ve written. To say it’s uncomfortable does not even come close to what I feel at times. However, something in me is keeping me on that Potter’s Wheel, and when all I want to do is kick and scream, which is often these days, I keep reminding myself that this is actually GOOD for me, that Abba Yahweh really does love me and wants the best for me.

    I can only imagine what all those people out there are going to go through when the lights finally come on, and they realize that they’ve been duped, on every level. Well, I would like to submit some encouraging news. It’s gonna hurt like hell (yes, I mean it in those terms), only stay submitted to Abba; hang on, it won’t last forever, and just know that Abba Yahweh is taking us out of Egypt; allow Him to take Egypt out of us!

  8. Broer is not the only one in this crowd that speaks and writes of other dimensions, including living in a holographic dimension. I have to turn it off when I hear it. There is a mix of Christianity and esoteric new age philosophy that triggers my Spidey sense. But $$$ is to be made and ears to be tickled. Not to mention that people love thinking they have a higher level of knowledge than the average sheep. There really is nothing new under the sun.

  9. I emailed you hoping you would personally approach the Hagmanns. They are reasonable, godly men n when you are on their program, they seem to respect you. Just seems they, being private eyes, would be able to investigate this matter and Expose the false brethren or at least bring to light what is going on with others in leadership. This is so sad that there is such division in Christ’s body. What a mess! So many good people attending and I believe, sincerely wanting to lift up the Lord in these last days but now the whole thing has been tainted by deception. This thing has satans fingerprints all over it. Too bad it can’t be moved to a church and the whole thing reorganized with the focus being on Jesus and not book sales, exhibits, etc. I read the schedule and I guess, this would be okay for a business convention or homeschooling convention (been to plenty of those) but in my mind, this should be a holy place, encouraging repentance and where the WOrd will have its affects on people’s lives.

    For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

    When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” Acts 2:37

    I am noticing in these verses what the Word of God does. It pierces our conscious and convict when it does its job. A conference lifting up Jesus and turning us away from sin is greatly needed in these last days.

    I know ministries need to support themselves but perhaps another venue, not this one which should be one of warning. The time is short, our redemption draws nigh.

    • Hi Karon Ruiz,

      I agree with you, and I am communicating privately with several parties, before releasing more information. They get it first, before anyone else.

      Truth will ALWAYS be divisive. Jesus was – and is. When we present the truth, we will suffer the same. But, God calls us to proclaim the truth in love. And, I will do my best to always do that, although I am many times sorely lacking in the ‘in love’ part.

      Thank you, Karon. I appreciate your efforts. They are noticed.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

  10. John, who is putting the Hear The Watchmen conference on? I looked at their website and find no mention of who is putting this on.
    I also want to thank you for your insight to all of this. I was listening to the HH show the night Ted was on and told my husband that what was being said was New Age. I was also surprised that the hosts didn’t say one word to him.. we just need to keep seeking and praying. God bless you all.

  11. Hey John, another great article that I enjoyed, even as a flat-earther. I wont call you any names either, expect Brother! (Rob Skiba has done a compila-tion with new evidence, if interested.) I have listened to Nathan a few times & did enjoy him & his insight. But, I did a quick search & found a guy, Michael Erevna, that claims Nathan stole his material on the Super Bowl. Apparantly, Michael was interviewed by Hagman before Nathan Leal did a show with them. (show dates would verify his claims) I know I am not perfect & am still seeking God’s Truth so I try to give grace & not let go of the Big Picture. May the God Peace be manifested in you & your family! (I definitely agree with you about Ted.)

    • Hi Darryl,

      As a die-hard ‘Earth-Glober’ or ‘Earth-Sphericer’, I am perfectly willing to admit to any name you wish for me. And, I am glad that you can comment on this site. I appreciate such integrity.

      I believe that Michael Erevna is a bitter and troubled soul. I see it in a lot of his writing, so I am not surprised at his bitterness towards Nathan.

      Has Nathan wronged Michael?

      Anything is possible, but I find it unlikely. Nathan appears to have a great deal of integrity.

      Whatever the case, Erevna’s assertions are beyond my ability to prove, and I must leave them to the reader to determine.

      Thank you, Darryl.

      Yours in Christ,

  12. John, cognitive dissonance is also a HUGE issue with Molyneux, as is always the case when something cultish is going down — and critics of Molyneux can see that he does indeed fit the profile of a small-scale cult leader. See, for example, this:
    http://www.fdrliberated.com/nations-leading-cult-expert-says-stefan-molyneux-freedomain-radio-is-a-closed-system-cult-environment/

    The basic elements of the cultish profile also show up in situations involving domestic abuse (when the leader in the home is a mini-god) and spiritual abuse within religious organizations (when the pastor is a mini-Pope & a scripture twister). (To illustrate: Another Example of Cognitive Dissonance = My husband — or my pastor — is a man of God; no doubt he beats me up physically and/or emotionally because God wants him to, and it’s good for me.) It’s horrifying how much of this goes on in the world, day in and day out. Sheep wandering with no shepherd to protect them. Matt. 9:36

    Needless to say, it’s striking to me as well that CD was your choice of topic at this particular time. Thanks, John, for taking the time to read my prior comment about Molyneux. I appreciate that. I know your hands are full — your heart and mind as well, of course.

    Peace in the Lord to you.

  13. Hi John,

    Great work again. Thanks for all you do.

    Regarding the Hagmanns and their guests, many times they have had guest espousing the pretrib rapture, including LA Marzuli, Bill Salus and Stan Deyo. They go right along with them, and then when Steve Quayle or David Lankford rail against the pretrib rapture heresy, they are right in there with them. They can’t have it both ways.

    God bless you

      • Where do the Hagmanns stand? When they agree with whoever is on their show, then you can’t tell.

        This comes to mind:

        Ep 4:14
        Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

    • This is what I was referring to in my above comment…that it was hard to know what H & H believed because they agreed with everyone.

      I am glad to know others also picked up on this.

  14. More commentary.

    To the observation that the ministries need to support themselves, yes, they do. That’s why Paul continued to make tents. He worked very hard in order to avoid BURDENING the congregation with supporting him, never mind PROFITING from it!!!!! IT IS NOT ABOUT MONEY AND WHEN IT IS THAT’S A HUGE RED FLAG. WAKE UP. In the internet age there are many low-cost options for reaching an audience.

    To the lame excuse that so-and-so is not a theologian, neither am I. But I can type “chakra definition” in the Google search window and here is what I get:

    chak·ra
    ˈCHäkrə/
    noun
    (in Indian thought) each of the centers of spiritual power in the human body, usually considered to be seven in number.

    That took about ten seconds. Note that there is nothing scientific or biological mentioned. Nor is there any mention that Jesus taught this. There are any number of online bibles with search functions – none of them will find an instance of “chakra”. Note that they are “usually considered” to be seven in number. Do you really think this can be considered anatomically reliable, based on scientific evidence? Are we “usually considered” to have two arms and two legs, or are there some respectable biologists who consider it normal to have three or four??

    While interviewing, why did they not say something like “gee, I’ve never heard that before. Tell us the Christian connection here.” If you’re thinking, “well, they didn’t want to put their guest on the spot or embarrass him.” – WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU? IT MEANS IF THAT’S THEIR REASON, THEN THEY KNOW IT’S NOT SOUND DOCTRINE. Which begs the next question – if they know that, why are they giving air time to deception? The only possible answer is that they know there is a huge audience for new age thought, and they are making the choice to serve that audience INSTEAD OF THE BODY OF CHRIST.

    If they consider their radio show to be secular entertainment, that is one thing. It is quite another when they claim their mission is to inform the body of Christ; not being a theologian does not absolve them of the simple responsibility to fact-check incumbent upon any journalist, Christian or not. Don’t even TRY to tell me that a professional private investigator with years of internet savvy behind him cannot do what I just did. They are also responsible for knowing the background and position of their guests and what they are likely to say. How could this possibly not be discussed in making the arrangements for the broadcast? Can you imagine them describing the upcoming broadcast like this – “We are going to interview so-and-so. We have no idea if he is doctrinally sound, or even if he is primarily profit-oriented and only secondarily claiming membership in the body of Christ.” If they had, they’d have at least some basis for belatedly trying to excuse themselves by saying they didn’t know what he was going to say. Not only that, there is no shortage of honest bible scholars they could have consulted. If they so chose.

    But they didn’t. Before the fact, they represented him as someone well worth listening to. After the fact, trying to backpedal and say they didn’t know what he was going to say. Crazier still is this complete BS that they had no idea chakras, etc were Hindu mysticism. What does this tell you? Look at the whole picture, not just the red herrings the enemy uses to keep you from seeing what is right there in the open, if you ignore the distractions and look at it. Disingenuous, a particularly appropriate concept here, and also one of Martin Armstrong’s favorite words – sophistry. Stuff that sounds scientific to the uninitiated but to someone knowlegable, it is pure chicanery. For what it’s worth, I see ads for products with completely bogus (in terms of science) claims ALL OVER SQ’s site and I have from the beginning. I go there regularly anyway because SOME of the articles are informative; not because I want to waste money on a completely useless ozone generator to “disinfect” my house (if it generated a strong enough concentration of ozone to do that, it would seriously damage your lungs or kill you to breathe it. Serious models are used in hospitals to sanitize rooms after being used by certain highly contagious patients. And once they are turned on, the room is vacated! ) I see this kind of stuff all over SQ’s site, catering to the latest hysteria – buy this to kill ebola germs! Do this to protect yourself from Fukushima fallout! 99% of it is garbage. He is responsible for what he endorses or appears to endorse. If he doesn’t have time to check it all out, he can pay someone to do so. He is not broke. Advertising pays extremely well, and he knows it. Mr. Little, how seriously do you take the responsibility not to allow false doctrine or heresy to be promoted on YOUR website? How seriously do YOU take the responsibility to research something to the best of your ability before offering an opinion, and failing that, admit that it is still a question mark?? That is a rhetorical question, of course you take it very seriously. My point is, SQ and others are no less responsible for same.

    What would any sane farmer do if his “sheepdog” were caught savaging a sheep? Shoot it. How brain-dead would he be to make excuses for this so he does not have to admit the obvious? If it is a beloved family pet, keep it in a fenced yard. But it must never be allowed freedom around livestock again. It reminds me of the spouses of child-abusers who make every far-fetched lame excuse they can to look the other way and deny what is happening under their own roof and in front of their own eyes. If they admit what is happening, yes it means a divorce. Yes it means all the difficulties and financial stresses of single parenthood. But do they love their children or don’t they? Is an easier life really more important than ruining that of their children’s?

    • Hi DRG,

      Another excellent rant.

      I am NOT happy with the garbage that appears on these sites and programs. Twenty years ago, I would have cut them off at the knees. I guess that I’ve mellowed as I’ve aged.

      I believe them to be sincere. Of course, flat earthers are sincere too. And, Steve is a REALLY good guy. But, that ozone thing…

      I sometimes feel like one of those poor rag pickers in Southeast Asia, going through the trash to find something of value. Alternative media is a pretty weird place, full of strange people with unusual ideas. Spend too much time thinking about ‘conspiracy’, and you’ll get pretty strange, yourself.

      So far, my approach has been to appreciate sincerity. Filter out foolishness, and realize that we’re all foolish. Oh, and keep the Bible as my guide.

      And yeah, don’t buy the ozone thing.

      Thank you, DRG. Your comments are always worth reading.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
      omegashock.com

    • DRG, you are dead on! Like I said in a previous comment, I have heard Doug and Joe stop a guest when he began new-age rambling (I forget the name of the guest, but he was on to speak about chem trails, etc.). Why not this time? My guess is because they were (possibly still are?) in a financial relationship with Broer.

      John, may I say something that may sound a bit harsh in writing, but I assure you is said in love? You speak of cognitive dissonance so I know you are intellectually aware of it, but yet you ignore the dissonance between what Quayle purports to be (a watchman of God) and what he says/does/sells/foments. You often say he is a “good person” who does “good things” and doesn’t brag about it. He may very well be a kind man, but that doesn’t necessarily make him a Christian, let alone a man who is worthy of being called a watchman of the Most High God. He lives off of inciting panic and has often made predictions that have not come to fruition. That is enough for me to dismiss him entirely as a watchman. I do pray for him, that he is truly saved and that he repents of his false teachings….

      You, on the other hand, do have the qualities of someone who is worthy to teach others about the Bible and the warnings set forth in it, which is no small responsibility. Few people are truly called to teach the Word of God. I respect you and your work a great deal. The reason I keep commenting is because I think maybe we, your reading public, see something you don’t in this situation.

      • Hi Kate,

        I have learned in more than four decades of Christian walk that there are many people with many different ideas of what the truth is. I have also learned that there is space for a lot of error. I have made many errors, and I believe that I will continue to make many in the future – and probably hold many right now.

        Steve has accepted Jesus Christ as His Lord and Savior. He is an imperfect follower of Christ, but so are we all.

        Steve accepts the gospel as it has been described in the Bible, and he does his best to follow what the Bible says. The fact that he makes mistakes is not a reflection upon his salvation. I certainly have made quite a few mistakes, and could be painted right along with Steve as a purveyor of ‘doom porn’.

        I’ve been writing about the possibility of imminent collapse for more than four years. Yet, the collapse is only now beginning to be felt.

        I accept Steve as my brother, just as I accept you as my sister. If we can act in love towards one another, then we will do much for the kingdom of God.

        Thank you, Kate. Your passion for Christ is commendable.

        Yours in Christ,

        John Little

    • DRG…thank you for your comment.

      You have said things that I have thought also and just didn’t put them down on the page.

      My son called out Robert Tilton when he was 8 years old, seeing him on TV. How is it that us “awake” people are not able/ willing to call out falsehoods or questionable things when we see it. Just because someone is awake to what the gov is doing doesn’t mean they teach truth in all areas.

      Thanks DRG, you have many good posts.

  15. John, I always enjoy your writings and even agree with most of what you present (that too is a miracle) – would you please e-mail me so I can write to you a private message on the fore-going topic on this page? My Father has shown me another individual that is prominent with the Hagmanns & others who is very questionable on his spiritual connections … thanks, James a Pastor in Nevada

    • Hi James in Nevada,

      You can always reach me at john at omegashock dot com. Just know that my ability to respond to email is very limited.

      I am always willing to look at such material and will consider what is said. But, I do not engage in attacks on other pastors/commenters unless their transgressions are obvious. I’ve made far too many mistakes in that area, and I have come to believe in treading carefully.

      Thank you, Pastor James.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little
      omegashock.com

  16. Thank you so much, John. I was very early, probably, in my public support of Nathan. I contacted Mike, Steve, and the Hagmann’s about my concerns and Mike personally responded. Out of respect for his desire that I not pass along his comments, treated in confidence, I will only say that he was positive, and was hoping for a reconciliation.

    I have never been a fan of Ted Broer. Occasionally interesting, but mostly comes across to me as a huckster. I did a little research on him and found he was associated with Benny Hinn. Then a few other vids on YT with him addressing church congregations with a message of “health products”. Now, if he just kept it honest with his health products, and nothing more, then I could just tune him out along with the rest of the world.

    I cannot, for the life of me, understand the treatment Nathan has received. Hagmann’s are still hawking Ted’s products, SQ making a public statement of forgiveness to Nathan, but saying he would never walk with him again, and DL affirming the false doctrine, but disapproving the public correction. These guys will cut down (call out) false teachers like Osteen, etc. all day long, but not one in their midst?

    Don’t get me wrong. I love these guys. All of them. I really apppreciate their work and calling, but clearly they have come down on the wrong side of this issue. If Steve would like to cut off folks for their stance in opposition (according to Marcel above), that is his his deal, but I don’t agree with that sort of treatment. I love Steve, love his body of work, his ministry, and his love for Jesus and truth. Pastor David is a blessing to me as well. Such a man of God.

    I hope and pray that God’s will be done in this issue.

  17. Hi John,
    I came across a website that I found very curious and believe it might help your investigation. It’s called Help the Watchmen by Mike WhiteStone, it’s his Go Fund Me site and Nathan’s name is still on there. The total so far is $8,802. I pray you solve this quickly and the people of God forgive and learn/ and satan’s involvement is revealed to all! God Bless you John!

  18. Slightly OT, but there must be significant cognitive dissonance in the way Islam and fascism is addressed by the ‘Left’ here in the Uk. The attached link (from a left source, no less!) is a long read, but in a nutshell, certain leftist groups opposed to extreme right wing groups will side with islamo-fascists to achieve their goals. However, what is of more concern is that I have seen extreme UK right wing groups championed by Christian websites because they oppose Islam!

    Groups such as the English Defence League and Britain First are based on extreme right wing ideology are linked to the British National party and its offshoots, who are anti-Semitic (see second link). Sometimes I need to give by head a good shake in disbelief as to what’s going on!

  19. Hi John.
    I would rather send message in your provided web message because I believe email hacking can be corrupted/ changed by hired trolls. So u can take this off ur web.
    GOD is surely stepping up refining the last days remnant. Those who are willing & humble will Know the scales on eyes & worldly weights must be purged. Horror that the enemy of mankind has done with escalating attacks to demoralize masses.
    I am in my sixties & many sliding tumultuous things happened to my brother & me. At the same time, everywhere most people have Also been slyly misled- deceived to follow great harmful non-health lies. It was a vile plan of satan when chemistry study began.
    If u tried to read our upset on Nathan’s forum-Current Events- Nathan’s new audio, the other anhilators- demolition group is bigger than just two men.
    They are spending a lot of phone talk, formulating rebuttals to broadcast. One three hour one Jan. 20 (I think) is ‘Instability the New Norm’, accessed on Hagmann report.
    It is what I suspected. Taking a world survey of issues & incorporating the forum posts & last dreams that Nathan had. They pulled in ‘the preplanned sinking of the titanic’. And kept ‘ building a case’ escalating to the last twenty minutes, with distinct reference innuendos; wolves. I was shocked of a sick statement Doug angrily allowed. I cannot repeat it. It WAS NOT Christ-like.
    It could have Instead been, get you heads out of the sand.
    Who is the Fuel behind Doug? Steve Quayle & possibly Pastor Lankford.
    GOD has had me on track of navigating thru propaganda since I gave my life at age 12.
    In our precious LORD JESUS,
    Susan

    The last words (about Israel’s choice between being Jewish and “democratic”) just raised my hair. I do not think God ever allows the state of Israel to become “not Jewish”. And they are speaking about the timeframe of few years, even this year (I did not check the demographic data yet, just saw this video – maybe you know more about this issue?).
    I can be wrong, but my first thought was that, apart from all other events, this sounds like the ultimate timeline to me. There will be no “democratic takeover” of Israel by the Arabs/Muslims. Conclusion: current trends will stop, and the time of this stopping is about NOW. Which means, we are entering numerous chapters of the Bible, you have spoken about so many times. Right now, this year.
    Please tell me I’m wrong…
    Yours in Christ
    ps.
    and, speaking about China, there is this:

    • Hi Chris,

      I wish that you WERE wrong. (And yes, about that ultimate time line, too.)

      Of course, the video was talking about the total numbers of Arabs both in Israel and in the territories of the ‘West Bank’ and ‘Gaza’, or Yehuda-Shomron-Azza, aka, Yesha.

      Those of us who have spent time in Israel know about this demographic problem. I once shocked a Jewish friend by telling him that Israel will need to start importing Evangelical Christians, to help balance out the problem. This demographic issue is one of many reasons why Israel has not annexed the territories.

      But, even if Israel excludes Yesha, the Israeli Arab population continues to grow far too quickly. Also, the Ultra-Orthodox growth is troubling as well. Very few of the Haredim are pro-Israel.

      But, I firmly believe that the Lord will fix this one.

      As for China, all that I can say is ‘OUCH’. Of course, they aren’t exactly a country run by ‘Christians’. However, the growing Christian population of China are extremely pro-Israel and have a strong desire to spread the gospel from China, throughout Asia and the Middle East – and Israel.

      They call it ‘Back to Jerusalem’, and I am very, very impressed with our Chinese brothers and sisters.

      Thank you for that ‘heads up’, Chris. Keep up the good work!

      Yours in Christ,

  21. Hi John — Excellent article on Congnitive Disonance! I’ve noticed that more and more people must be suffering from this since anger and agitation – especially when discussing God or the Bible is increasing drastically in my opinion. I’m subscribed to some wonderful youtube channels by pastors, preachers, bible teachers – and the amount of nasty, ugly comments by “trolls” is horrendous!

    In a post above by “Trudy”, she asks about “chakras” and naturopathy textbooks. I don’t know about the textbooks, but I do know that many, many “holistic” doctors are deep into New Age ( yoga, crystals, etc.). If someone visits a “holistic” clinic, they best be very aware of this fact.

    Thanks again, John!

    • Hi Cathie,

      Yes, you are correct that many alternative practitioners are involved in the new age. That is why I am questioning if the term “chakras” is found in naturopathic textbooks. I don’t know.

      People have been very quick to make judgments and accusations of lying and willful deception, when, in fact, the term “chakras” (and other new age terms) might have been used because of the medical education that was received. Again, I don’t know.

      I guess my concern is that as ambassadors of Christ we are called to reach out to the lost. We are to seek salvation and restoration, not to hit them over the head with a baseball bat.

      The Bible teaches, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.” Galatians 6:1 There are actually only certain people who are to confront those who are taken over in a fault–it is those who are spiritual. The rest of us need to pray.

      Blessings in Christ,
      Trudy

      • Hi Trudy,

        Those that preach heresy, openly, should be rebuked openly. Those of us who take upon ourselves the office of ‘teacher’, also are required accept open criticism from the Body of Christ – if we preach error. I accept this condition, and so should Ted Broer.

        Paul openly rebuked Peter for his sin of making a difference between Jews and Gentiles within the Church. Ted Broer has openly preached heresy and lied about it, while calling himself a brother in Christ.

        This cannot be allowed to continue, and Nathan Leal was completely right in what he did.

        I agree with your desire for unity and meekness. And, Nathan followed the passage that you quote in every detail, and was attacked for it.

        Thank you, Trudy.

        Yours in Christ,

  22. To change the subject completely, here is an absolutely scientific article with no pseudoscientific slant on the discovery of a new, giant planet (called planet 9, doesn’t seem to have an official name yet) that has a really strange, elongated orbit and only makes it around the sun every 20,000 years or so. Interestingly, it does not collide with debris in the Kuiper belt but rather pushes things away and explains anomalies in THEIR orbits. I did not see anything about how close it ever comes to Earth in its travels. Or whether it would push Earth away also, rather than collide. Interesting.

  23. Cognitive dissonance between sin and conscience has become topical this week.

    http://www.barnhardt.biz/2016/01/26/luther-in-his-own-words/

    I researched one of several incriminating quotes of Martin Luther. The one that interested me, regarding cognitive dissonance, was said to be,

    “Do not ask anything of your conscience; and if it speaks, do not listen to it; if it insists, stifle it, amuse yourself; if necessary, commit some good big sin, in order to drive it away….”.

    I had a hunch that might not be accurate. So I searched it. It is maybe somebody’s summary of Luther, not exactly Luther.

    So I read Luther in detail (see link below) and I am amused at the subtlety of the devil in this detailed quote of a letter of Luther:

    http://beggarsallreformation.blogspot.ca/2010/08/luther-perform-big-sin-to-quiet-your.html

    Maybe some think that redeems Luther. I do not. That blobber does. I post it as an example of cognitive dissonance being very subtle.

    Fasting and praying is the only way to know if we are hiding from our error, not distraction, and seeking others.

    • Hi Ed Sain,

      I’m not sure why Luther matters. But, I’m not sure that this criticism is accurate or relevant.

      My suspicion is that he did NOT say that, or that the quote is taken out of context.

      Remember that Catholicism is anti-Christ. I believe that there ARE Catholics that have accepted Christ truly, but they are commanded by God in Revelation to leave the Catholic Church.

      Whatever criticism that Rome might level at Luther, is largely unimportant.

      Thank you, Ed.

      Yours in Christ,

      • I was thinking of returning to the Catholic church because it is the church of Saint Peter and the path of the saints, although I left it 25 years ago, in search of the Holy Spirit. I will think about your Book of Revelation point.

        The second link is accurate Martin Luther doing his cognitive dissonance and apparently basing a new religion on not resolving cognitive dissonance.

        I will read your Nathan Leal report now. That is more important at this moment. I do not divert your attention from that, for this old topic.

  24. ‘I go there regularly anyway because SOME of the articles are informative’ – DRG

    Some articles give a platform to dangerous. anti-Semetic disciples of the Dragon.

    Some articles lead to the Christian Patriot trap Satan is setting up.
    Some articles are a day or more behind…. even from the time I’ve posted them.

    So, the business is not as blessed as it once was for a number of reasons, the least being a lack of humility.
    By not admitting he and others were wrong to stand by such garbage and to minimize and divert us away from their Chief responsibility in this door they opened wide for Satan, and to tear down a faithful servant of the LORD an apology is sorely needed .
    but are they too proud to give one to everyone ?

    Too proud to admit we are wrong is a one way ticket to God’s rather large scrap heap.

    • Hi Marcel,

      This is true. But, if you’re like me, you know of many, many times when you’ve been wrong.

      Steve has been pretty faithful in his attempt to present what he believes to be the truth. He’s been doing it every day, without fail, for years. I don’t agree with him on a lot of things, but I don’t know of a single source that’s better.

      Without Steve, our work would be more difficult, and we’d have to sully our minds with the likes of ant-semites like Sean Geoffrey Turnbull of SGTReport.

      My hope is that Steve will see that he was wrong and repair the damage that he and David Lankford have done. If God had change a hard heart like mine, He can certainly do the same for Steve.

      Of course, it’s still upsetting. And, it is to your credit that you ARE upset. I would think less of you, if you were not. But, Steve is still a brother, so we must extend to him the forgiveness that Our Lord extended to us.

      To be more clear, Christ forgave us before we knew that we needed to be forgiven. We are challenged to do the same.

      Thank you for being in this fight, Marcel. Keep up the good work.

      Yours in Christ,

  25. John thank you for a gentle spirit and much grace I see between the lines of your posts. Much needed right now. I bounce around from different alternate media websites. Coming across yours recently has been refreshing to say the least.

    Sometimes SQ presents a doom worldview on steroids and I can only take so much. I can actually feel agitated when I read too much as I do with The Common Sense Show and All New Pipeline. My fault. I’m a news junkie. But it’s when I click over to Lankfords site, I feel unsaved and that I will never “measure up” to what God expects of me. Not blaming Lankford, I think I see things through a twisted grid and can often have “an older brother” attitude. (Luke 15) For many of my 41 years as a Christian, I have approached God through performance instead of relationship.

    Does anyone else here struggle reconciling the God of judgement and hell with the one of grace and love? I can’t seem to settle into a relaxed walk with God. The doom porn seems to feed my performance. I got on Benjamin Baruk’s website yesterday and after reading several samples from his books, I felt lost. He says so few will really be saved. I wonder if I’m in that number. Does anyone else out here in cyber land feel that way? I am such a coward now with our current trials (heavy duty marital trial right now), what will happen when I face a choice to choose Jesus or my life? I am barely hanging on right now. How will I hold on to Jesus if all hell breaks loose? After reading writings from such folks, I often walk away from my computer monitor wondering how much of this salvation stuff depends upon me getting it right? Can anyone out here relate?

    From reading your posts, I sense the grace of God, though at the same time, you don’t back down from what we face ahead. Stan and Holly Deyo are also very balanced people, not sensationalizing the daily headlines. In fact, I have great deal of trust in Stan’s research. Rick Wiles also seems to calm me down though his truth telling can be dire . But the delivery of others seem to cripple me with fear and find it hard to even enjoy my life.

    Is it possible to have a joyful peace filled life when reading/listening to some of the so-called watchmen? I am beginning to wonder.

    Thanks for all you do and your commentary on this post. Please go easy… I am feeling very volunerable with being so transparent but from what you’ve posted so far, I am sure I have nothing to do worry about.

    • Hi Karon Ruiz,

      Twenty years ago, you would have numbered me among the ‘you do not measure up’ crowd.

      Of course, you and I do NOT measure up, but we aren’t expected to. What we are expected to do is… our best. My 42 years of following Christ is only slightly longer than your own, and I’ve made a HUGE number of mistakes along the way. Some of those mistakes caused harm to brothers and sisters in Christ.

      I am horrified by those mistakes, and we should all be horrified by our sins.

      Yet, we must not forget the love of God. As I have matured as a Christian, that love of God comes more and more to the fore. On balance, I still talk more about sin, but I still see it in terms of God’s love for us.

      For those in Christ, we are a dichotomy. We retain our sinful self, and that sinful self does not love God and will never love God. But, at the same time, we have been given a new spirit that is not sinful and naturally loves God. In fact, this ‘new man’ cannot do anything but love God.

      Ask yourself, “Which part of that dichotomy are you feeding?”

      The fleshly sinful part of me must fear God. That part must live in dread of a just and holy God. It must quake in terror at the very mention of God.

      But, our spiritual part has no understanding of such fear. Our new spirit loves God with a consuming passion and will shrink at nothing that is good and holy.

      Preaching Hellfire and damnation is vital. Without it, we will allow sin to creep into our lives and choke that which loves God. We must daily fight against sin with every effort inside of us.

      But, fighting against sin is not enough. In fact, it is the least of what we are.

      What are should consume our lives, and ‘what we are’ should always be the love of God. Our God is the Creator of the Universe who loves us with a passion that we cannot comprehend. Our God has a willingness to forgive that is beyond anything that I can understand.

      As the years march on, I grow closer to understanding God’s love and forgiveness, but I will never reach full understanding until I stand before Him. And, I look forward to that day.

      Just let me caution you to not follow the path that I have seen others follow. Many have criticized the ‘Hellfire and Damnation’ preachers because they did not want to acknowledge their sins. We MUST acknowledge our sins, repent of them and turn away from the path that led us to them.

      Only THEN will we experience the love of God.

      If we do not, the love that God has for us, will prompt Him to discipline us – so that we will follow Him properly.

      To summarize, Love is most important of all, but we will never experience that Love without Godly fear.

      May God bless you, Karon. May our loving Lord guide you in the days ahead.

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    • Hi JS,

      I’ve seen that first one already, but I will listen to that one again. Yuri Bezmenov is a great! (er… WAS great, ‘cuz he’s dead.)

      The second one is quite a ‘blast from the past’!

      I met Robert Welch as a teenager, on one of his last public appearances.

      Unfortunately, I think that the John Birch society was taken over from within by those who owe their allegiance to the Vatican.

      Unfortunately, Robert Welch shied away from the true Satanic roots of ‘the conspiracy’, and that left his message as unconvincing to me. It was only much later that I stumbled over those Satanic roots.

      Thank you, JS!

      Yours in Christ,

  26. (I’m) wondering how much of this salvation stuff depends upon me getting it right? Can anyone out here relate?

    yep, we all go through what you are dealing with.
    The good thing is we go through it….. by our faith.

    If we are depending on our abilities it’s hopeless, but if we KNOW, have faith that God IS FAITHFUL TO LEAD US, IT’S NOT SO HARD, it’s a breeze, it’s all joy.

    As John wrote, the Fear of the Lord is a powerful gift, revelation from God.
    When we walk in the fear of God, all the noise that usually, and so easily shakes our FAITH is silenced.

    Faith is not easily shaken, doubt is !

    Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
    Hebrews 10:38

    “Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith.

    Habakkuk 2:4

    • Hi Marcel,

      I often wonder about how much knowledge that we need to be saved. We must at least know about Jesus. As for the rest, it’s hard to say. I used to be a LOT more emphatic on what you needed to know, but I’ve begun to realize that God is a lot more forgiving that me.

      And, you mentioned pride.

      I’m afraid that I have a problem with THAT one.

      Also, knowing where the line is less important than doing your best to stay as FAR from that line as possible.

      Of course, I sense real faith and a love of the Truth in you, Marcel. And THAT is the most important. Keep up the good work, brother!

      Yours in Christ,

      John Little

    I just noticed that Mike Whitestone, changed his picture on FB, when I went to his site I noticed he has Mike Whitestone as his name and in brackets Brother Mike kerr!!! Im confused I knew something was off with this guy, now Im curious.Hmmmm
    I stand with Nathan, hes a great watchman, you know them by their fruit and be produces very good frui, I also love reading Benjamin Baruck book, I ejoy you as well… meet you on the Hagmanns, but since I stopped watching them as the fruit they produce with these speakers sometimes leaves me to doubt if these men really are walking in the Spirit.
    I think when they had Jonathon Kliek on there show and he was talking about his 100% nolyn( dont ask lol) we couldnt say anything against the speake ror we were banned from chat, needless to say I left, if we cant stand for the truth and allow the listeners be deceived by false doctrine, whats the point of listening???
    God bless you, I aprreciate the Lord using you to bring Darkness into the light!!!!!!
