That is if you can find the salt!

Nearly half the young men in this photo are self-professed Christians (two are "pastors")! The remaining are satanists, heavy metal and punk rock musicians. You can also find "Gothic" Christian sites devoted to all things melancholic and dark!

Jesus said:
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned?
It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men." Matthew 5:13

"So likewise, whosoever he be of you that forsaketh not all that he hath, he cannot be my disciple. Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."
Luke 14:33-35

If the "flavor" of the church is indistinguishable from the world what good is it? It is as Jesus said "good for nothing" and not "fit for the dunghill". The current trend in youth ministry should be more than alarming to all parents who "have ears to hear" what the Lord has already said and continues to say to His bride, the church.

As the return of Christ draws nearer it seems God is indeed turning mankind over to his reprobate mind.  There is definitely a "strong delusion" and many are  believing the lie because they "love not the TRUTH".


  • "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." Romans 12:2

Strong's Hebrew & Greek Dictionary
G4964 / συσχηματίζω / suschēmatizō /soos-khay-mat-id'-zo
From G4862 and a derivative of G4976; to fashion alike, that is, conform to the same pattern (figuratively): - conform to, fashion self according to.

Transformed: G3339 /μεταμορφόω / metamorphoō / met-am-or-fo'-o
From G3326 and G3445; to transform (literally or figuratively "metamorphose"): - change, transfigure, transform.

  • "And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you." 2 Corinthians 6:16-17
  • "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Revelation 18:4

This young "preacher of the gospel" states that god showed him outside of a punk rock concert that those leaving were "sheep without a shepherd".  Seems his first response was to remind god that he "hated going to church", but he surrendered and started his church.  This video is a stunning example of how the One True and Holy God is allowing this delusion and how more and more they will believe the lie!   []     

May God have mercy and grant repentance to the many, many who are being led astray by their friendship with the world. Come out while there is still an opportunity.

  • "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God." James 4:4
  • "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves." Matthew 7:13-15
  • "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep." John 10:1-7

There is ONE gate (door) by which to enter the Kingdom of God and it is narrow and requires those who enter to be transformed not conformed to this world. Oh, there are other gates, but I believe they are the "gates of hell" the church should withstand.

  • "Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them; strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able." Luke 13:23-24


Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
