Here are the links to an article from The Berean Call and several from the Lighthouse Trails Newsletter which came through my email account recently that I found particularly interesting:

Here is an excerpt to whet your appetite:

A number of respected Christian columnists and pastors across our nation are rightly sounding an alarm at the thickening shroud of global governance descending upon our nation. With the presidentially promised "change" now being delivered, the spectre of a militarized one-world spirituality is darkening the horizon of earth under the guise of "hope" and "peace."

I understand—and share—the righteous anger over the sorry state of the church and its lackadaisical response to the evils of our time. Serious students of God's Word, however, have been long alerted to these signs: "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come..." (1 Tim 4:1; see also 2 Tim 4:3-4). Though we take some comfort that our Lord could return at any time for His Bride, it appears that even those whose blessed hope is in a pre-tribulation rapture should take heed and prepare for precipitous times ahead (1 Pt 4:12-16).1

Lighthouse Trails continue to do an excellent job reporting on the spiritual trends happening in the church and the world. They also publish a number of books I highly recommend. If you have not yet done so, I would encourage you to sign up for their newsletter. You can do so by clicking HERE.

I found this newsletter particularly interesting as it included an article entitled Eastern Meditation: Pope's Way of the Cross Adopts an Eastern Viewpoint (the original article is from the Catholic News Service) in which it reports the Pope's use of Hindu scriptures during the Good Friday service, once again demonstrating the ongoing syncretism of Roman Catholicism and pagan religions.
