More Q Quandaries

I like Q.  That said, I have serious Biblical reservations about Q’s end game, as I’ve previously detailed.  (Here is one such post: http://garyritter.com/the-q-quandary-part-1/.) The bottom line for me is that in the natural, from a political and cultural perspective, Q is doing some very good things.  He has exposed the Deep State for the…

The Q Quandary – Part 2

In Part 1 of The Q Quandary, I described how Christians can be deceived in following Q without exercising wisdom and discernment.  The reason for this is because the outcome that Q espouses is exactly the same as what the New Age / New Gnostic community believes will happen.  Their expectation is that once Q…

The Q Quandary – Part 1

The rise of Q and his public resistance against the Deep State has sent its globalist-minded minions into a frenzy.  Social media—when they even allow posts about Q—usually place warning labels to the effect that Q is an unproven tool of those who hold to far-right conspiracy theories.  Q has united people of many different…

Idols: Then & Now

In our westernized, Christian worldview, the idols of old made of stone and wood make little sense.  We wonder how the peoples of the Ancient Near East (ANE) could be so foolish as to think that a statue of some sort was worthy of worship.  How stupid could they have been back in those days? …

The CULT-ivation of our Youth

In conjunction with a book project I’m working on, I was given the suggestion to read Tom Horn’s latest exposé called Shadowland: From Jeffrey Epstein to the Clintons, from Obama and Biden to the Occult Elite, Exposing the Deep-State Actors at War with Christianity, Donald Trump, and America’s Destiny.  (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B083JLYM3D)  That’s a mouthful, but it…

Scoffers & Mockers Then & Now

Back in Ezekiel’s day, he faced much scoffing and mocking when he brought forth the Word of the Lord.  Despite being so faithful to God and being a conduit for many messages to the Israelites, their constant scorn of God’s prophetic Word had to weigh on Ezekiel.  To reassure him, God spoke extensively about those…

Martyrdom & NAR

Because of the ten years I’ve been associated as a volunteer with Voice of the Martyrs (VOM), I’ve gotten a perspective of the church and of Jesus Christ that, frankly, few Christians are privileged to witness.  In this time, I’ve read the classic book by Richard Wurmbrand, Tortured For Christ, a couple of times and…

Marijuana & This Present Darkness

For those of you who have read This Present Darkness, you may have seen what author Frank Peretti wrote about so vividly enter your own communities.  The novel depicts the town of Ashton that has been targeted by dark forces that intend total domination.  It portrays spiritual, geographical, territorial entities that control this community combatted…

Re-Examining the Third Commandment

Have you ever wondered why the Third Commandment has such a penalty enacted by God?  Doesn’t it seem a little extreme?  Let’s examine Exodus 20:7: “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.” Think about that. …

How Does Apostasy Enter the Church?

We know that in these latter days apostasy has entered the church.  Scripture prophesies to that.  Various translations describe this differently as rebellion and falling away, but the NASB in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 says it most clearly: Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first,…
