Of bones and bathwater

Original description: This is the aftermath of...

You’ve no doubt heard the sayings, “eating the meat and spitting out the bones,” or, “don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater.” These are interesting metaphors for how we as Christians are to be wise with what we read, listen to, and promote.  Whether it’s Christian music artists, popular books like the Harbinger or Purpose Driven Life, or  a podcast from a favorite pastor, all man-made messages pale in wisdom and truth compared to the pure milk and meat breathed out by God in the Bible.

Sometimes, mature believers can consume the man-given meat and be discerning enough to spit out the bones. Christians who are newer in their faith might need their meat cut for them, or perhaps stick to the milk until their church can disciple them in wisdom and truth.

But there are other times when wolves in sheep’s clothing will add just a tiny little bit of leaven to the dough, and the whole thing is spoiled. Do you throw that baby out with the bathwater? Yes! (Indeed, that is an awful word picture, but it is nonetheless part of our cultural vernacular, and we all understand what it means.)

Today we’re asking our listeners, when is it appropriate to consume with caution, and when is it critical that we avoid the entire plate?

First, we’re going to check in on a huge worldwide event, the The United Nations +20 Sustainable Development Conference that just wrapped up in Rio de Janeiro. Joining us is Dr. Cal Beisner  from  the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation. Dr. Cal was an instrumental resource and interviewee for the new documentary movie, AGENDA: Grinding America Down, a ministry in itself showing how end times prophesies are already playing out and have been for years. It’s one of those films every Christian should see and share.

  1. I've read the Harbinger. Great Book! I support it 100% the message of course is:
    2 Chronicles 7: 14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.



  2. I just happen to have logged in to Glenn Beck's website and watch this interview with Jonathan Cahn. Here is their caption: On Tuesday’s “Glenn Beck Program”, Glenn interviewed author Jonathan Cahn about his controversial book – The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America’s future. While there is a healthy debate over the factual nature of the book, Glenn was interested in it for one reason: the message.

    To quote 2 Chronicles 7:14, in particular the words, "my people" as grounds for agreeing withthe Harbinger book is to believe that America was truly a nation of Born Again Christians and not just professing to be. Even the founding fathers were apart of secret societies with ties to the occult. Don't believe me? Then do your own research. Need only you open your eyes, you can see that long before 9/11, America has been on the decline! We didn't need purchase a book to tell us that since the bible clearly states how this world will be dominated by satan in the last days…and yes, that includes America. All Christians need to do is read the bible and they will know the truth!
