The damage caused by the Israeli military operation in Gaza makes it impossible for thousands of people to return home, despite the ceasefire, due to lack of services, water and electricity, Ramesh Rajasingham of the UN humanitarian agency OCHA told RT.
The UN has released a new report stating that the number of people displaced in Gaza is still rising, despite a truce put in place after a full-scale operation by Israel against Hamas that claimed the lives of 2,210 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and over 70 Israelis.

The UN report notes that there was a significant drop in the number of displaced Palestinians at the end of August, down to 53,000, but the situation changed at the beginning of this month, with more Palestinian refugees flooding into UN shelters, sending the figure up to 58,217.

RT spoke with the head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA) in Palestinian Territories, Ramesh Rajasingham, for an analysis of the situation.

RT: The latest figures show an increase of displaced Palestinians despite the existing ceasefire. Why is that?

Ramesh Rajasingham: We have about 110,000 Palestinians displaced now. They are either in schools run by the UN organization UNRWA or they are staying with other families, who actually have their homes. There are many reasons for this. We have about 18,000 homes, which are either fully destroyed, or irreparably destroyed. So 18,000 homes means 18,000 families without a home today. But these figures have also been added to by those who’ve gone back to their homes and they’ve seen that they have no services, no electricity, no water – primarily due to destruction during the conflict. They have also not been able to access services. They don’t have adequate supplies, etc. In many ways, what they can get in the shelters is better than what they can get at home. They can perhaps have access to water in the shelters.
The humanitarian organizations have been helping these families in these shelters as well as the families that are hosting them with emergency water, hygiene kits, and food. Almost the entire population of Gaza is receiving food assistance through the main organizations UNRWA and the World Food Programme. So the level of destruction and devastation in the Gaza Strip has made it impossible for some of these families to return home. Even though they possibly do have a roof over their head, they can’t actually live there with any decent amount of services.

RT: This military operation has seen an unprecedented level of destruction for Gaza and a huge number of civilian losses from both sides. Is there any way for Israel to justify that?

RR: We are looking primarily at the humanitarian impact of the conflict. In fact, now that you have a ceasefire and those who can return home have returned home is absolutely an imperative, a must, and is a very positive development. Even before the conflict Gaza was suffering tremendously from the blockade. It was very difficult to get building materials in, difficult to get equipment in, and spare parts – in what we called a de-development situation. So on top of that the conflict just further aggravated the situation and brought a terrible humanitarian crisis for almost the entire population. We’ve had 118 schools damaged, of them 22 have been entirely destroyed. Now this comes on top of the situation where Gaza required 200 schools. So in many cases children will be worse off in terms of education. We had 50 healthcare centers damaged, 17 hospital damaged.
The water infrastructure has been damaged. We have almost half a million people today who have no access to water because there isn’t enough pressure or the system is damaged. Electricity – we have 18-hour power cuts for most of the population in Gaza because either the infrastructure is damaged, or in the case of the power plant, it stopped functioning because it was directly hit by the bombardment. The situation in Gaza at this point, even though we do have a ceasefire, is a humanitarian crisis. What we would obviously ask is not just to provide humanitarian assistance – which is what most of the organizations are doing today – but, to help Gaza recover, to help rebuild Gaza, so they can regain some degree of normalcy and not go back to where they were.

Isaiah 17 King James Version (KJV)

17 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.
The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.
The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.
And in that day it shall come to pass, that the glory of Jacob shall be made thin, and the fatness of his flesh shall wax lean.
And it shall be as when the harvestman gathereth the corn, and reapeth the ears with his arm; and it shall be as he that gathereth ears in the valley of Rephaim.
Yet gleaning grapes shall be left in it, as the shaking of an olive tree, two or three berries in the top of the uppermost bough, four or five in the outmost fruitful branches thereof, saith the Lord God of Israel.
At that day shall a man look to his Maker, and his eyes shall have respect to the Holy One of Israel.
And he shall not look to the altars, the work of his hands, neither shall respect that which his fingers have made, either the groves, or the images.
In that day shall his strong cities be as a forsaken bough, and an uppermost branch, which they left because of the children of Israel: and there shall be desolation.
10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, and hast not been mindful of the rock of thy strength, therefore shalt thou plant pleasant plants, and shalt set it with strange slips:
11 In the day shalt thou make thy plant to grow, and in the morning shalt thou make thy seed to flourish: but the harvest shall be a heap in the day of grief and of desperate sorrow.
12 Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
13 The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
14 And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.
King James Version (KJV)

The Federal Reserve Thinks You’re ‘Hoarding’ Cash

The Federal Reserve Thinks You’re ‘Hoarding’ Cash
Economic officials claim that Americans are “hoarding” money in an analysis out from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis that attempts to explain why inflation is lower than expected even after the central bank  pumped massive amounts of money into the economy.
The authors of the Fed paper note that the central bank’s easy money policy in recent years has failed to produce expected levels of GDP growth and accompanying inflation.
“The answer lies in the private sector’s dramatic increase in their willingness to hoard money instead of spend it. Such an unprecedented increase in money demand has slowed down the velocity of money,” the Fed officials say in the paper.
The economists say in their research that every dollar in the monetary base was spent only 4.4 times in the economy during the past year as of 2014. Just prior to the economic recession that number, known as the velocity of the monetary base, stood at 17.3.
“This implies that the unprecedented monetary base increase driven by the Fed’s large money injections through its large-scale asset purchase programs has failed to cause at least a one-for-one proportional increase in nominal GDP,” the Fed researchers say. “Thus, it is precisely the sharp decline in velocity that has offset the sharp increase in money supply, leading to the almost no change in nominal GDP.”
While the economists say private “hoarding” of money likely resulted from a gloomy economic outlook coupled with low interest rates forcing investors to adjust portfolios in favor of “liquid money and away from interest-bearing assets such as government bonds.”
“In this regard, the unconventional monetary policy has reinforced the recession by stimulating the private sector’s money demand through pursuing an excessively low interest rate policy (i.e., the zero-interest rate policy),” the Fed officials write.

Benghazi Security Team: Stand Down Order from CIA Cost Amb. Stevens His Life (Video)

Benghazi Security Team: Stand Down Order from CIA Cost Amb. Stevens His Life (Video)

Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, September 5, 2014, 10:19 AM

A Benghazi security team told Bret Baier the stand-down order cost Ambassador Stevens his life.
Via Special Report:

Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered in a terrorist attack at the US consulate in Benghazi on 9-11-2012.

His body was dragged through the street after his death.
The Obama administration lied about the Benghazi terror attack, even calling it a protest.
A US security team in Benghazi was told to “stand down” during the attack on the US consulate.
FOX News reported:
A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier.
Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the first-responders to any attack on the diplomatic compound. Their first-hand account will be told in a Fox News special, airing Friday night at 10 p.m. (EDT).
Based on the new book “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi” by Mitchell Zuckoff with the Annex Security Team, the special sets aside the political spin that has freighted the Benghazi issue for the last two years, presenting a vivid, compelling narrative of events from the perspective of the men who wore the “boots on the ground.”
The security contractors — Kris (“Tanto”) Paronto, Mark (“Oz”) Geist, and John (“Tig”) Tiegen — spoke exclusively, and at length, to Fox News about what they saw and did that night. Baier, Fox News’ Chief Political Anchor, asked them about one of the most controversial questions arising from the events in Benghazi: Was help delayed?
Word of the attack on the diplomatic compound reached the CIA annex just after 9:30 p.m. Within five minutes, the security team at the annex was geared up for battle, and ready to move to the compound, a mile away.
“Five minutes, we’re ready,” said Paronto, a former Army Ranger. “It was thumbs up, thumbs up, we’re ready to go.”
But the team was held back. According to the security operators, they were delayed from responding to the attack by the top CIA officer in Benghazi, whom they refer to only as “Bob.”
“It had probably been 15 minutes I think, and … I just said, ‘Hey, you know, we gotta– we need to get over there, we’re losing the initiative,’” said Tiegen. “And Bob just looks straight at me and said, ‘Stand down, you need to wait.’”
“We’re starting to get calls from the State Department guys saying, ‘Hey, we’re taking fire, we need you guys here, we need help,’” said Paronto.
After a delay of nearly 30 minutes, the security team headed to the besieged consulate without orders. They asked their CIA superiors to call for armed air support, which never came.
Previously… Lt. General Thomas McInerney told Lou Dobbs in March 2013, “There is only one person who can say stand down and that’s the president.”




Joel Osteen and his wife are heretics, and that’s why America loves them

Video surfaced a few days ago of Victoria Osteen, wife of famed “pastor” Joel Osteen, saying some rather heretical things to the “congregation” at Lakewood “Church.”
Sidebar: I’m only one sentence into this post and already I’ve been forced to use sarcastic quotes three times. For simplicity’s sake, I will, from here on out, drop the quotes with the understanding that the quotes are implied. Joel Osteen is only a pastor because anyone can call themselves a pastor these days, and his church is only a church because anything can call itself a church these days. I happen to be of the old fashioned school of thought that believes a pastor should be, in some ways, distinguishable from Tony Robbins or Oprah, and a church should be, in some ways, distinguishable from a basketball arena on game day. I’m not saying that all churches need to be adorned with stained glass windows and incense (although I’m a fan of both), but I am saying that maybe all churches should have, like, a cross or something somewhere, maybe. God forbid a house of worship be arranged in such a way as to make it clear that we are specifically worshipping Jesus Christ and not the smiley fellow on stage giving the vaguely spiritual pep talk.

In the clip, Mrs. Osteen implores the audience to “realize that when we obey God, we’re not doing it for God… we’re doing it for ourselves.” As her proud husband nods approvingly, Osteen continues. “Do good for your own self. Do it because God wants you to be happy. When you come to church, when you worship Him, you’re not doing it for God, really — you’re doing it for yourself, because that’s what makes God happy. Amen?
Amen! What wonderful blasphemy! Worship God for yourself. Do good works for yourself. Take up your cross, suffer the slings and arrows of the Enemy, and die with Christ for yourself. (OK, she didn’t say that last part, but only because the Osteens have a strict “don’t talk about Jesus” preaching policy).
In more primitive times they burned heretics at the stake. Now we greet the blasphemers with applause and multi-million dollar book deals. I’m not sure if the latter response is any more enlightened than the former, but both are wrong.
This is obviously an indefensible teaching, and one that does not require more “context” to be understood. “Do good for your own self.” A definitive, complete, profoundly disordered statement. Rooted in the Idolatry of Self, it betrays a pagan attitude which positions the Self as the Ultimate Good, the Final Purpose. All things — even God Himself — must revolve around the great and powerful Me. In the Osteens’ version of things, God exists to serve us, just as we exist to serve ourselves. You act virtuously for your own sake, because it brings you happiness. Never mind what Christ said in Matthew, when He told us to “let our light shine before others, so that they may see our good works and give glory to our Father who is in heaven.” Here, He seems to state that we act with righteousness and virtue in order to glorify God, but Mrs. Osteen thinks that Jesus is complicating the equation. Just shine your light for your own sake. Forget about God. Keep it simple, folks.
And even when you pay honor and homage to the Lord — do it because it makes you feel good. Your feelings are the end all and be all. Again, we are a far cry from what Scripture has to say on the matter, where Paul exhorts us to “present our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is our spiritual worship.” [Romans 12:1]
Become living sacrifices. Be holy and acceptable to God, your Master. One would assume that we ought to still prostrate and humble ourselves before the King, even if it doesn’t always necessarily fill us with pleasurable, fun feelings.
But we would be wrong, according to the Osteens. God is a lenient and permissive Father who would never ask such a cumbersome thing of his children. Instead, He spoils us with treats and toys, and wants only for us to always be fat and happy all the time, no matter what. If a child is unhappy, or lacks in certain Earthly pleasures — like, say, the ten million dollar mansion where the pastors Osteen currently reside — then clearly that son or daughter has failed as a Christian and a human being.
In the “Prosperity Gospel” — the theological school of thought where Osteen and his ilk concocted their perverse interpretation of Christianity — God rewards us with material wealth and temporal happiness. Those who have neither just need to believe more and pray harder.
Sorry, I’m being unfair. Osteen says that if you want to be rich you have to go beyond pure belief; you have to speak it into existence. From Your Best Life Now: “If you want success, if you want wisdom, if you want to be prosperous and healthy, you’re going to have to do more than meditate and believe; you must boldly declare words of faith and victory over yourself and your family.” God will make you prosperous if only you “declare words of victory.”
“I’m a winner! Now give me money!” Like that? Does that work? But I’m still not rich. What’s going on here?
This is an interesting perspective, to be sure, especially considering that Americans live in relative wealth and luxury even though we are far from the most Biblically faithful people on the planet. In the Middle East there are millions of Christians who believe deeply and, rather than wealth and health, they are rewarded with torture and decapitation. In Central America and Africa you will find scores of men and women who are on fire with the faith, yet toiling through a harsh and painful drudgery of an existence. What does Osteen’s philosophy say about these people? “Hey Ethiopian, maybe you wouldn’t be living in that shack and drinking stagnant water while you slowly starve to death if only you declared words of victory!”
Although these megachurch prosperity preachers might hop on their private jets and hand out books and t-shirts in some of these desolate, destitute, hellish regions of the world, it’s no wonder that their message doesn’t exactly resonate there. Only western Christians could be so soft, so silly as to eagerly buy into the empty platitudes of false teachers such as these.
Joel Osteen has no answers for those who truly suffer. He can spew inane slogans like, “if you have a big challenge today, that just means you have a big destiny!” (actual quote), but he can’t offer any real hope to the tired, the poor, the sick, the persecuted, the lonely, the dying. He gives them a friendly slap on the back and tells them to pick their chin up because it will all get better, but then he goes home to his castle and things don’t get better — not in this life, anyway. The sick get sicker, the persecuted are seized, arrested, and beaten, the tired find no rest, the poor lose even what little they had, the dying die, the suffering suffer. This is the reality for most of the people on this Earth, and the Osteen Doctrine sounds like nonsense in the face of it.


Chrislam’s Rick Warren Partnering With Mosques To Teach That God And Allah Are The Same

| February 28, 2012
Rick Warren and Chrislam 2.0
Rick Warren has decided to spend his time and wealth promoting the hybrid Chrislam religion.
RELATED STORY: Click here to read about Rick Warren’s beginnings in Chrislam…
From WND: (OCREGISTER) — The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America’s most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
The effort, informally dubbed King’s Way, caps years of outreach between Warren and Muslims. Warren has broken Ramadan fasts at a Mission Viejo mosque, met Muslim leaders abroad and addressed 8,000 Muslims at a national convention in Washington D.C.
Saddleback worshippers have invited Muslims to Christmas dinner and played interfaith soccer at a picnic in Irvine attended by more than 300 people. (The game pitted pastors and imams against teens from both faiths. The teens won.)
The effort by a prominent Christian leader to bridge what polls show is a deep rift between Muslims and evangelical Christians culminated in December at a dinner at Saddleback attended by 300 Muslims and members of Saddleback’s congregation. source – WND
From Stand Up For The Truth: This past Sunday, a major shift was announced by Pastor Rick Warren at his Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, that has many Christian leaders concerned. As Saddleback hosted its ”celebration of Jesus (pbuh),” attended by a number of Muslim communities in Southern California, something theologically significant happened at the dinner portion of the event.
Only a select number of people were invited to the dinner. A document one year in the making was presented which encourages Christians and Muslims to “appreciate the similarities of our faiths.” What does this mean? Is it simply a way to reach out a helping hand to the communities in Southern California, or is something more serious happening? source – Stand Up For The Truth
From Time: WASHINGTON — Defying some of his fellow conservative Christian critics, one of the most prominent religious leaders in the country told several thousand American Muslims on Saturday that “the two largest faiths on the planet” must work together to combat stereotypes and solve global problems. source – MSNBC
From Jim Hinch: Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, home to super-pastor Rick Warren (Obama inauguration, Purpose Driven Life, etc.) has joined forces with Southern California mosques to adopt a three-step plan for ending enmity between evangelical Christians and Muslims.
The plan’s first step calls for Muslims and Christians to recognize they worship the same God. Interfaith reconciliation has been proceeding for years between Muslims and more liberal-leaning mainline Protestant denominations.
Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, home to super-pastor Rick Warren (Obama inauguration, Purpose Driven Life, etc.) has joined forces with Southern California mosques to adopt a three-step plan for ending enmity between evangelical Christians and Muslims.
This is the first such effort I’ve heard of by an evangelical mega-church. Many evangelicals regard Islam as Christianity’s number one enemy, and they do not at all agree that the two faiths worship the same God. This is likely to make waves. source – Jim Hinch

"You don't have a god in you, you are one." (Kenneth Copeland, "The Force Of Love" tape # 02-0028)
"God's reason for creating Adam was His desire to reproduce Himself. I mean a reproduction of Himself. And in the garden of Eden He did that. He was not a little like God. He was not almost like God. He was not subordinate to God even. And Adam was as much like God as you can get, Just the same as Jesus when He came into the earth, He said "If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father." He wasn? a lot like God - He's God manifested in the flesh. And I want you to know something - Adam in the garden of Eden was God manifested in the flesh."

"I was shocked when I found out who the biggest failure in the Bible actually is. Everybody you ask "Who's the biggest failure?" They say "Judas", somebody else will say "No, I believe it was Adam", well how about the devil. He's the most consistent failure. But he's not the biggest in terms of material failure and so forth. The biggest one in all the Bible is God. What, what, what - don't you turn that set off - you listen to what. I told you - now you sit still a minute. You know me well enough to know I wouldn't, I wouldn't tell something I can't prove from the Bible."(Kenneth Copeland, "Praise-a-thon" program - TBN (April 1988)
"Jesus had to go through that same spiritual death in order to pay the price. Now it wasn't the physical death on the cross that paid the price for sin,  because if it had of been any prophet of God that had died for the last couple of thousand years before that could have paid that price. It wasn't physical death anybody could do that." (Kenneth Copeland, "What Satan Saw on the Day of Pentecost" (Kenneth Copeland Ministries, audio tape #020022)

"Here's something that's amazing, Paul (Crouch), He was kept sinless by the Spirit, because the Bible says that He offered Himself spotless through the Spirit. What? This is right here.  "How much more shall the blood of Christ, Who through the eternal Spirit, offered Himself without spot". So had the Holy Ghost not been there, then Jesus would have sinned. (Paul Crouch: Jesus have mercy!) Yeh.  Now I know some of the, well, the heretic hunters won't like it, some won't like it but it's in the Bible. (Paul Crouch: I've never heard that.) The Holy Spirit is the one who kept Christ sinless, because without the Holy Spirit, Christ would have sinned." (Benny Hinn and Paul Crouch on TBN)

"There's a groups here in Califonria that thinks they are the judgement seat of Christ.  Dear God in heaven, I wish I just could just ... they call it a ministry, my foot.  You know I've looked for one verse in the Bible, I just can't seem to find it. One verse that said, "If you don't like 'em, kill 'em."  I really wish I could find it." (Benny Hinn on "heretic hunters")
"You see, frankly, that's the way I think about it.  I'm sorry, I'm not exactly the normal kind of guy, you know, I'm from Israel.

(Benny Hinn talking about "heresy hunters") Comment: first this is blasphemous.  Second, Hinn is not an Israeli, he's an Arab Palestinian.

This audio clip is from a Kenneth Copeland revival with Rodney Howard-Browne. It was seen by a live stadium audience of 30,000 in attendance as well as millions of TV viewers. The woman started to laugh after she was "slain in the spirit" by laying of hands by Rodney Howard-Brown. At the end she breaks out into tongues. Does this sound like something from the Holy Spirit? Many Pentecostals believe that this is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit. Hear the audio clip!
"... We've been taught that revival is sovereign, it's a sovereign move of God.  Que sera sera, whatever will be will be, the future's not mine to see, the Doris Day doctrine.  If God wants revival He'll do it, and we just wondering if we'll just keep having srvices until one day He comes ... revival is something that can be planned, revival is something that can be scheduled ..."

(Kilpatrick Message 4/6/97:)"If you want to keep any kind of a semblance of a ministry, you better back off from this revival and what God is doing. You better back off, because I'm going to prophesy to you that if you don't, and you continue to put your tongue in your mouth on this move of God, within 90 days the Holy Ghost will bring you down. I said, within 90 days the Holy Ghost will bring you down."

God's Frequency is 39.17 Mhz.  Peter Popoff Fake Healer and Fraud! See actual video of Popoff in the act of fraud! Why is this fraud still on TV???? Why do many Pentecostals think he is saved and that the Holy Spirit is performing miracles through him?
John Scotland shows his contempt for the Bible. Here are his introductory comments about the reading!  "I want to read from from Luke chapter 1. Some of you don't think I give readings. Well I was brought up in the Baptist church. Isn’t this pulpit good? Shupdaduoo. We will get to the reading for those that like the reading. I’ve just got to go with the flow.  Notice this ladies and gentlemen. If your taking notes. heeheheh. [Obviously no one was taking and he knew it, just more mockery] and for you that have chose this night to check the place out you've chosen the wrong night." See and hear the video clip!
Scotland tells us that these chicken sounds are a manifestation of the Holy Spirit. Such is ridiculous to blame such foolishness on the Holy Spirit. He then interprets it as a "wake-up call". We agree! It is a wake-up call these Pentecostals to come to their senses! "Ok before we take off, clapping, lets get the reading done. Luke, LUKE. (Laughing) Chapter TWOOOOOOO. I tell you what... Lets look at chapter 1. Settle down please, Ladies and Gentlemen! Luke chapter 1 and verse 5. Lets go back to the reading... Luke chapter 1 verse, verse, verse, Chockadodaldoooo. Oh dear, haahah. Luke chapter 1 verse CHOCKADODALDO. For those of you having difficulty with that manifestation like myself... That's a wake up call. Zacharius was in the sanctuary when, ZACHARI. Zacharius was a member of the Dubabupida. Division. service corpse. One day Zacharius was going about his work in the temple Cockadodaldoo. Verse 10. praying, PRAYING!! for I have come to the god has herd your prayer WOW... WOWWWWW. God hears PRAYER! Verse 14 ladies and gentlemen, settle down now, settle down." See and hear the video clip!
John Scotland explains the manifestation of spiritual drunkenness. He calls it "the gift of offending people" and refers to it as an "anointing" With absolute certainty, the Holy Spirit would never cause a man to act as if literally drunk. Drunkenness is  condemned in the Bible! Such behavior makes us wonder if he is demon possessed, because the source surely is not divine! Offending people is not a gift from God, For the Holy Spirit condemns offending people: 1 Cor 10:32; 2 Cor 6:3. "You know I . WOWHOO. I’ve been going through different stages of drunkenness. and the stage I’m at, at the moment is Slouching. I’ve gone through the hick up stage. I’ve gone through the phase of heckling the preachers. um. I am a sign and a wonder.When a prophet told me there was an anointing for me coming pre-1994, I thought great. But when that anointing came, it came in a package I didn't expect. It came in a package of offence. I’ve come to the conclusion that my gift is offending people. what can you do? You know I mean. I think Christians are to sensitive anyway you know, always winging. but it is a gift. I don’t need to even say anything. um. I SHOT THE SHERIFF. AND I SHOT THE DEPUTY TOO! WOW, the sheriff is legalism. and the deputy is religion.(cheering) Um. that's good isn’t it? that's copyrighted now. you can’t copy it. heheh. I didn’t ask for this. no I didn’t. The problem was when I came through the doors November 1994. And the Lord said to me, "What do you want John"? I said I want to get drunk. I just forgot to tell him how long. Now I don’t mind being drunk. Its great. But I said to the Lord. I don't like looking drunk, you know your eyes get blood shot. and he said to me. John, You see some of think Goddoesn’t talk like that but he’s very, he is a fun God. Lets get the fun back into church. And he said John, you see the rock stars on breakfast TV, they always wear sunglasses. so he said get yourself a pair of sunglasses. I call these glasses glory shades. I’m sure Moses would have worn them if they had them in the old testament. Whoahhh, Now hang in please, hang in. fasten your seat belt. we may have a bit of turbulence tonight. and you might want to run, but hang on in. lets go back to the
reading." See and hear the video clip!
Here is new one! Scotland is led by the Holy Spirit to sound like a bugle playing"charge". While he blames such repulsive behavior on the Holy Spirit, it is nothing more than cheap theatrics. "They had no children for a ...dutututututudododototo (audience responds with charge) verse 14 now settle down ladies and gentleman settle down. And your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son and you are to name him John and will both have great dutututututudododototo (audience responds with charge, this is reapeated many times. Then Scotland returns to the pulpit quite out of breath and says:) Its hard work taking the reading" See and hear the video clip!
Emotionalism, Anti-Intellectual, Anti-doctrine attitude that permeates most of Pentecostalism. [Some Pentecostal groups feel that doctrine is quite important.] "See some of us are saying, I can’t get my head around this. your not supposed to get your head around it. your supposed to get your heart around it. You’ve got PhD "Permanent Head Damage" Listening to too many sermons. For 20 years I’ve  preached 3 point sermons. Nobody set free. Now I get drunk and ramble and God offends people to reveal their hearts. I was at another service and I had the bag with my bottles in it. And I staggered to the front, and I am going through my bag looking for my bottles and I know the spirit of God is doing something. And my natural mind is saying get on with the sermon. and the spirit of God is carry on, go with the flow. what do you want? you want religion. you want sermons? Tickle your ears? or do you want the foolishness? Do you want the foolishness of the holy spirit to come in? In Power. Isn't it great to shout in church. Isn’t it? Its great, you know all these years, you've been told. When you walk into church SHHH. SHHH. you might wake god up." See and hear the video clip!
LEGALISM: Scotland’s revelation contradicts his own Bible reading 3 minutes later! Pentecostals generally feel that Legalism is heresy. Yet Zecharius was praised for  being a legalist: "careful to carry out God’s laws in spirit and letter." To some Pentecostals, being anti-legalistic means that they can throw out the need to follow the Bible!  "I shot the sheriff! And I shot the deputy too! WOW the sheriff is legalism. And the deputy is religion. [5 minutes later he quoted from Luke 1] Zacharius and Elizabeth were godly folk. Careful to carry Gods laws in spirit and in letter." See and hear the video clip!
Reveling, drinking parties condoned. This incredible clip speaks for itself. Notice that jab against non-Pentecostal churches being equated with Joy Killers! For Scotland to claim that God upheld a wicked drinking party as a model for "how to party" is blasphemous! Even the slightest spiritual discernment can see the evil in John Scotland. But remember, 3000 people were in attendance and millions of Pentecostals all over the world view the Toronto Blessing as a movement from God. This should remove all doubt!  "Isn’t it great to shout in church? It is isn't it? Its great its you know. All these years you’ve been told when you walk into church. SHHH. SHHH you might wake god up. Ladies and gentle men. The Angels are serving wine. There serving wine as I speak. There bringing, bringing. BIG barrels. The party has just BEGAAAAN. A couple of  years ago. 2 years ago, A couple was living together. and there daughter died of cancer at 23. I think she was. 6 months before she died. he walked up and asked me, can I use the church hall to throw a party for my daughter. what was I to do? I said Yes. They were an ungodly family. and the along with the party they wanted drink. and the lord said go along, let them drink. and they invited me to the party and gee. and it was about 1 am and the party had just beguuuuun. and the disco was playing. and they had this machine that puffed out smoke and flashing lights and I sat there in the party and the place was heaving. and you know what the lord said to me? he said, John this is how you party. This is how you party. I’ve been to church for 20 odd years. Looking at your watch wondering when the preacher was going to finish. Church were only just learning how to party. you know we were never invited to parties. because we were joy killers. yeah. yeah. JOY KILLERS! Now we get invited all the time. Jesus said I’ve come to give you life. LIFE! LIFE! and that more abundantly." See and hear the video clip!
Use of secular music in his performance. Scotland quoted more from secular rock bands more than the Bible. Apart from the 14 verses in the Luke 1 reading, (a reading that had no relevance, nor did he make any spiritual application) He quoted the Bible only one other time, yet he quoted these rock stars 4 times!  "Strawberry fields forever." "the party has only just begggaaaaann." "All we need is love. All we need is love." "I shot the sheriff. And I shot the deputy to." See and hear the video clip!
Vision of the dead churches: Scotland claims this vision came from God. What spiritual value is there in a bishops daughter crawling as a drunken harlot down the street? This vision is certainly not from God! see Col 2:18 "taking his stand on visions he has seen, inflated without cause by his fleshly mind". "When I was in Norway I had a vision and they had a big tent and they had a service called blow up the church. Started at 11:30 P.M. went on till 3:30 A.M. people drunk in the spirit. bishops daughter crawling in the street. That night I had problems, I vomited 3 times. God said as your vomiting that's how I feel about the luke warmchurch. that's my job to blow up the church. isn’t it great to shout in church? no, its great isn't it? All these years you’ve been told when you walk into church. SHHH.SHHH you might wake god up." See and hear the video clip!
Spiritual supremacists! This little clip reveals the true attitude that most Pentecostals feel about non-charismatic churches who follow God’s command to "do all things decently and in order" 1 Cor 14:40. It is quite common for Pentecostals to refer to non-charismatic churches that do not speak in tongues, "dead churches" or "spiritless churches". see this link also: Pentecostals are spiritual elitists "Isn’t it great to shout in church? no, its great isn't it? All these years you’ve been told when you walk into church. SHHH. SHHH you might wake god up." See and hear the video clip!
