Is there a Doctor in the House?
The term Apologetics has become nearly extinct in the Christian Church. A couple decades ago, we had several thriving ministries that had as their focus the defense of the faith by pointing out errors in the Church. Today, nearly all those organizations no longer exist or they have become muted by the moral corruption that is taking over the world.
One indication that we are living in a time of lawlessness is the lack of news of corruption being uncovered in the Church. The only negative news I read today are about pedophile priests in the Catholic Church.
The lack of scandal in the Protestant Church is because standards have become so low, people can get away with all types of transgressions. I recently encountered one that shows how we have reached a state of anarchy. I was watching a prophecy program in which the host claimed to have 16 doctorate degrees to his name, which is a task that should have taken a huge amount of time. After doing some research, I found that phony degrees have become common among Christian leaders.
The average student takes 8.2 years to slog through a PhD program and is 33 years old before earning that top diploma. The degree requires anywhere from 60 to 120 semester credit hours (or, approximately 20-40 college classes). Most PhDs require the full 120 hours, while most applied doctorates are closer to the lower end of that spectrum.
Many people who attempt to earn a PhD will fail in their task. Only about 57 percent of doctoral students will get their PhD within 10 years of starting graduate school. The average cost for a degree is $40,000.
There are some education centers that have greatly streamlined the process of getting a doctorate degree. These fake schools are diploma mills that sell degrees or have little to no standards for obtaining one. If you can count to 10 on your fingers, you can earn a doctorate degree in Mathematics. If you can name the four gospels, you’ve earned a PhD in Theology. If any of you have read more than 10 articles on RR, you can put on your next resume that Rapture Ready University has given you a degree in prophetic thinkology.
It is common knowledge that Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame was never a real military Colonel. In 1935, the governor of Kentucky, Ruby Laffon, bestowed Harland Sanders the title of Colonel “in recognition of his contributions to the state’s cuisine.” If Colonel Sanders went to his stores, blabbing to customers that he had been a tank commander during the Battle of the Bulge, well, then there would be a problem.
Since I have no respect for the Word of Faith crowd, I can call phoney baloney on people like Benny Hinn, Ken and Gloria Copeland, and Joyce Meyer. They all got their doctoral degrees from Life Christian University, which has no federal accreditation. The school’s founder, Douglas Wingate, admits that “earned degrees” go to “big name” preachers who never attended the school.
Creflo Dollar hasn’t done anything to earn his degree. He received an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Oral Roberts University. Honorary doctorates have been given to such esteemed recipients as Kermit the Frog, whose “doctorate” was bestowed upon him by Southampton College in New York. Honorary doctorates do not qualify recipients to work or teach in the field designated on the diploma. No one wants an honorary doctor to perform heart surgery on them. Mr. Dollar’s bogus degree doesn’t do anything to help him preach the gospel truth.
T.D. Jakes received his Dr. Degree from Friends International Christian University, which is another well-known diploma mill. You don’t get 12 years of education in 5 unless it’s a garbage institution.
Perry Stone once had the Dr. prefix to his name, but he decided to stop using it. He now goes by Prophet Perry Stone or Pastor Perry Stone. He is also one of the only big-time prosperity preachers that does not have an honorary doctorate degree.
I don’t see the point of people spending vast amounts of time trying to earn a degree. Any school that has an accreditation is going to be overrun with liberalism. The best source for Christian learning is the Bible itself.
There are numerous people who have legitimately earned the right to be called a doctor, but many people who put Dr. on their name want to be a big shot in the eyes of men. Jesus said the best way to greatness is to humble yourself. A Child who expresses the most simple gospel message is more productive than someone who tries to reach the lost with academic arguments.
“Then an argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. But Jesus, knowing the thoughts of their hearts, had a little child stand beside Him. And He said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes this little child in My name welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me. For whoever is the least among all of you, he is the greatest’” (Luke 9:46-48).
Qanon–Challenging Deep State
The InfoWars website and radio program have been banned by the largest social media forums. Alex Jones, the host of InfoWars, has been termed a conspiracy purveyor and accused of being not only a kook, but a danger to the American public.
Mainstream media look down on Jones and every other forum and individual who don’t view their “news” as the only news that should be accepted as truth–thus while the American public is fed such mainstream media “news” punditry as “Trump is complicit in Hurricane Florence slamming into the East Coast.” This, it is conjectured by such proclaimed to be reliable truth-tellers as CNN, based upon the current president’s being a denier of climate change as defined by the globalist propaganda machine.
CNN, you might have heard, is the same cable network that just a couple of weeks ago reported that Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, claimed that the then candidate for the presidency knew in advance of a meeting Cohen had with a Russian operative. Cohen’s own lawyer, Lanny Davis, a long-time member of the Clinton attack machine, at first said he, himself, was present at that meeting. Later, he recanted that claim when his client, Cohen, said it was untrue. Trump never had any knowledge of any such meeting.
Davis then publicly admitted to his own “mistake” in reporting the lie. CNN, who gleefully ran with the story, has not, to this point and to my knowledge, retracted the original claim that Trump was guilty as claimed.
Multiply that mainstream media lie times a thousand in just the past two years while Trump has been either a candidate for president or president, and there is compiled a mainstream media platform of untruth that staggers sensibility. Yet it is Alex Jones, and anyone else who defies the mainstream fake-news narrative, who gets banned from getting his version truth before the public.
Now, I’m among the first to say that I cast a skeptical ear upon some of what I’ve heard from Alex Jones’ reporting. Some of it defies logical discernment, if I may use that term. However, considering all of the madness prevalent today in this nation and world, Jones and InfoWars ring as true, as do things coming out of the likes of NBC, CBS, ABC, The New York Times, The Washington Post…and CNN.
With that as preface, I come to something that has been effervescing for quite some time somewhere within my cogitative processes. You have likely heard of the matter or matters involved.
“Q” or “Qanon” is the supposed entity to which I refer. I say supposed, because much of what I know about this entity, as I said about the mainstream narrative these days, defies logical discernment. Does he–for it is thought to be an individual within the immediate circles that surround the president, and I presume it is a man, if he indeed exists within that circle–truly have knowledge of the intrigues he reports?
To those who are clueless of what I refer to here, I’ll try to explain in brief.
Q or Qanon is the name given a supposed insider within the White House ranks who issues reports on a frequent basis about what is in actuality going on with regard to this president and the so-called deep state. The deep state is a term most recognize. This refers to those within government–particularly within the top ranks of clandestine services –CIA, FBI, NSA, etc., that are part of the Washington, D.C. “swamp,” as Mr. Trump termed it during his campaign to win the presidency. These, along with many D.C.-establishment types, have been doing all within their power to destroy Trump’s presidency and even the man himself, family-wise and business-wise.
The aforementioned mainstream media joins this cabal in the attempted destruction.
At the heart of this drive to oust this president at any cost is the pile upon pile of lies that continue to spew from the swamp and are magnified and carried throughout mainstream media. You might have noticed how there has been a steady stream of such lies meant to destroy the president–a different lie almost every week for nearly two years.
Qanon tells a far different story than the mainstream anchors and pundits tell. In their reporting, Trump is always on the cusp of being linked to Russian collusion in defeating Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. Special counsel Robert Mueller is right on the verge of proving that collusion, or is about to get the president on obstruction of justice, has been the mantra of these establishment-media types for almost two years.
Yet, there hasn’t been a single fact brought forward that makes the connection Mueller is desperate to make. There have been only accusations and innuendo–this, in my view, is designed to keep doubt in the minds of the voting public until Trump is no longer president.
Their world has been disrupted–again, in my opinion–by the Lord of Heaven, Himself. They cannot and will not abide their gravy train being taken away and their one-world plans disrupted.
The entity known as Qanon is disseminating through alternative news sources that there is a reckoning coming for the deep state and those complicit in opposing the president and doing great harm to the American Republic. He indicates something big is on the way that will expose and even bring to justice much of the deep state at every level. It will soon be made clear for all to see, Qanon assures, the corruption at the very top of U.S. government, and where the true collusion festers.
This supposed insider source has much to say that is fascinating. I can’t and won’t vouch for the absolute validity of everything that is said in his news releases. I will say, however, that this source’s news rings far more true than do the lies, innuendo, and corruptive evil that has been spewing from the keyboards, microphones, and cameras of the mainstream news and entertainment media and even from governmental minions of the father of lies–again, in my humble opinion.
I make this appeal to anyone reading this commentary who has insider knowledge of the Qanon intrigues to send me information (email@example.com)–while providing at least a degree of validation that the information you provide is credible. Please don’t send links to Qanon posts on various blogs. I’ve seen many, many of these. True insider information is solicited here, if it exists.
One thing sure, Ephesians 6:12 has never been more in view than at present.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
