Joseph Herrin (02-25-2010) Every now and then I feel compelled to comment on issues in the news. There is so much going on in this hour. The end of the age is at hand, and the earth must go through her birth pangs as the sons of God are revealed. Many things are being set in place for the...

Syncretism – Part Eight – SYNC or SWIM

Syncretism – Part Eight – SYNC or SWIM

Joseph Herrin (10-23-2010) Perhaps you have considered that the practice of Syncretism that has been revealed in this series is the opposite of the separation that God has always required of a people who will be holy unto Him. Syncretism is the mixing of the holy and profane. It is to travel in a...

Syncretism – Part Seven – Parting of THE WAYS

Joseph Herrin (02-22-2010) This is the most important post of this series, for in it I will address the motive behind the practice of syncretism.

Comments on the Syncretism Series

Joseph Herrin (02-21-2010) Before sharing some of the comments to the present series on Syncretism, I want to speak on the subject of this Blog’s intended audience.

Joseph Herrin (02-19-2010) The practice of syncretism, of mixing the abominable practices, symbols and doctrines of idolatrous religions with the teaching of Christ and His apostles is clearly observable to all who care to examine the matter.

Syncretism – Part Four – Apostles of the Sun

Joseph Herrin (02-15-2010) Egyptian Obelisk in St. Peter’s Square from St. Peter’s Basilica An obelisk is an object of pagan Sun worship. The word obelisk means “shaft of Bel” (Baal).

Syncretism – Part Three – The Harlot and the Scarlet Beast

Syncretism – Part Three – The Harlot and the Scarlet Beast

Joseph Herrin (02-12-2010) It is only possible to accept that the picture above is an image of what Christ intended His church to be if one has become divorced from the truth. To be divorced from the truth is the definition of the word apostasy. II Thessalonians 2:1-3 Now we request you, brethren,...

Syncretism – Part Two

Syncretism – Part Two

Note: Some have written to me to express various opinions on this teaching series, of which only the first part has yet been posted. Some are concerned that the definition of Babylon and coming out of her is too narrow if applied only to rites and symbols such as those of Easter and Christmas....

Syncretism

(02-09-2010) Note: I want to share a link to an excellent post by Art, a brother in Christ.

The One Thing Lacking…

The One Thing Lacking…

Joseph Herrin (02-03-2010) Perhaps you have noted the tiniest hint of frustration in my recent posts. Okay, maybe there has been a LOT of frustration. Do you know that our heavenly Father will at times drive us to frustration that we might begin to cry out for that which is lacking in our life?...

An Invitation to Pray

An Invitation to Pray

Joseph Herrin (02-02-2010) Many Hands Make Light Work Although the picture above represents a pun on this old proverb, I felt it was appropriate for what I desire to convey. Ministering the light and life of Christ to others is never an individual matter. This is especially true among the BODY of...

Suffering for Sloth

Suffering for Sloth

Joseph Herrin (02-01-2010) One thing that provokes me is when Christians fail to exert themselves to study a matter carefully to discern truth from error.
