Big Tech is clamping down on conservative media big time. Don’t let Big Tech pre-chew your news. Sign up for our free email newsletter, and we’ll make sure to keep you in the loop.

This week brings us to the 5th characteristic of a false teacher.

We’re talking about the guy who knows all the pretty words it takes to wow a crowd, but doesn’t have anything of substanc backing it up.

Sometimes he’ll take the shape of the honey-tongued huckster selling snake oil. Sometimes he can play a crowd like a violin, taking them on more emotional ups and downs than a rollercoaster. Sometimes he’s that sage academic who knows all the latest trendy buzzwords that will pull the rug out of everything holy, just, and true.

Whoever he is, he’s not a plain-speaking truth-teller who will let the weight of God’s word break and rebuild what needs breaking or rebuilding in the hearts of His people.

You ready?


Let’s go.

While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
