Barna Group Shock Poll Reveals That 47% Of All Christian Millennials Believe That Witnessing The Gospel And Evangelizing Is Wrong

The vast majority of practicing Christian millennials believe that knowing Jesus is “the best thing that could happen to someone,” while nearly half believe evangelizing is wrong, a study conducted by the Barna Group reported.

The vast majority of practicing Christian millennials believe that knowing Jesus is “the best thing that could happen to someone,” while nearly half believe evangelizing is wrong, a study conducted by the Barna Group reported.

The command of our apostle Paul, rightly divided and dispensationally correct, is that all born again Christian are to preach, teach and otherwise share the gospel of the grace of God with as many people as is humanly possible. It is a theme and a subject he touches on over, and over and over again. However, your average Laodicean end times church spends precious little time on the doctrines that Jesus and the Holy Spirit gave to Paul during those three and a half years of his “christian college” education in the Damascus wilderness.

“I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:1-5 (KJV)

But here at NTEB, we are not confused about the Bible’s crystal-clear command to preach the gospel while breath remains within us. We preach the gospel of the grace of God 24 hours a day everyday through this site, as well as preaching on the streets and in the jails. If you are waiting for the oft-promised ‘end times revival’, you might be waiting quite a long time. But guess what? You can have your very own personal revival that can begin right here and right now! Order yourself a box of our gospel tracts at the bottom of the article, and start evangelising the lost you come in contact with on a daily basis.

“But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.” Acts 20:24 (KJV)

Only one life, ’twill soon be past. And only what’s done for Christ will last. Get busy, Christian, and be about the Father’s business. For the night is coming when no man can work.

EVANGELIZING IS WRONG, SAY NEARLY HALF OF CHRISTIAN MILLENNIALS

FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: In a study entitled “Reviving Evangelism” the Barna Group, a research center that tracks faith and spirituality in American life, reported that 94% of practicing American Christian agreed that “the best thing that could ever happen to someone is for them to know Jesus.”

On the other hand, the same study found that 47% of Christian millennials believe that evangelism is wrong.

Almost half of Millennials (47%) agree at least somewhat that it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith. This is compared to a little over one-quarter of Gen X (27%), and one in five Boomers (19%) and Elders (20%). (Though Gen Z teens were not included in this study, their thoroughly post-Christian posture will likely amplify this stance toward evangelism.) source

Specifically, they believe that it’s “wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes they will one day share the same faith.”  Part of their unwillingness to share their faith, a different Barna study called “Spiritual Conversations in the Digital Age” reported, seems to be that the generation entitled millennials believe that people are more likely now to be offended by someone who shares their faith.

OpenAI Disbands Safety Team That Was Put In Place So Artificial Intelligence Would Have Safeguards In Mad Rush To Bring About The Singularity

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

OpenAI on Friday confirmed that it has disbanded a team devoted to mitigating the long-term dangers of super-smart artificial intelligence.

The changes are happening so fast now that you might not even be aware that you are living in a science fiction futuristic movie where AI computer technology catches up with every day human life, beginning the process of taking over everything on every level. Your King James Bible has long shown you end times technology, you just didn’t know what it was when you read it. Now you do.

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15 (KJB)

We live in the southernmost state in America, in the country, surrounded by bucolic views of gorgeous farmland with scenes that likely have not changed much in a century. Life appears to move slower down here, yet it does not. Everyday I get in my car to drive to work, up to 30 different microchips spring into action to allow the smooth-running of my Jeep. I go to make a phone call while I ride, but first must pass the facial recognition shield protecting my mobile device. Far overhead, a ring of thousands of satellites are circling the Earth, constantly monitoring activity far below. It is at that moment it hits me again that we are living in very modern times, in fact, living in the future that writers, artists and filmmakers said would one day arrive. It is here. Headlines announcing Air Force pilots encountering UFOs barely get a notice anymore, everyone knows ‘they’ are here now, it’s become commonplace. We are the generation that sees the merging of man and machine, but we are also the generation that boards Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines. That’s what time it is.

OpenAI disbands team devoted to artificial intelligence risks

FROM YAHOO! TECH NEWS: OpenAI weeks ago began dissolving the so-called “superalignment” group, integrating members into other projects and research, according to the San Francisco-based firm. Company co-founder Ilya Sutskever and team co-leader Jan Leike announced their departures from the ChatGPT-maker this week.

The dismantling of an OpenAI team focused on keeping sophisticated artificial intelligence under control comes as such technology faces increased scrutiny from regulators and fears mount regarding its dangers.

“OpenAI must become a safety-first AGI (artificial general intelligence) company,” Leike wrote Friday in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

Leike called on all OpenAI employees to “act with the gravitas” warranted by what they are building. OpenAI chief executive Sam Altman responded to Leike’s post with one of his own, thanking him for his work at the company and saying he was sad to see Leike leave.

“He’s right we have a lot more to do,” Altman said. “We are committed to doing it.”

Altman promised more on the topic in the coming days. Sutskever said on X that he was leaving after almost a decade at OpenAI, whose “trajectory has been nothing short of miraculous.”

“I’m confident that OpenAI will build AGI that is both safe and beneficial,” he added, referring to computer technology that seeks to perform as well as — or better than — human cognition.

Sutskever, OpenAI’s chief scientist, sat on the board that voted to remove fellow chief executive Altman in November last year.

The ousting threw the San Francisco-based startup into a tumult, with the OpenAI board hiring Altman back a few days later after staff and investors rebelled. OpenAI early this week released a higher-performing and even more human-like version of the artificial intelligence technology that underpins ChatGPT, making it free to all users.

“It feels like AI from the movies,” Altman said in a blog post.

Altman has previously pointed to the Scarlett Johansson character in the movie “Her,” where she voices an AI-based virtual assistant dating a man, as an inspiration for where he would like AI interactions to go.

The day will come when “digital brains will become as good and even better than our own,” Sutskever said during a talk at a TED AI summit in San Francisco late last year. “AGI will have a dramatic impact on every area of life.” READ MORE

Newly-Unveiled Portrait Of King Charles III Swimming In A ‘Sea Of Blood Red’ Shows The Image Of Baphomet When Placed Side By Side In Reverse

The brand-new and official royal portrait of King Charles III ‘swimming in a sea of red’ officially confirms conspiracy theories about him being the Antichrist

Even though I still see Emmanuel Macron as the leading candidate for the biblical ‘man of sin’, what King Charles III did yesterday when he unveiled his brand-new official portrait of himself was a total rock star move. You might even say it was, as the English might remark, ‘just a tad shocking’. If King Charles III was looking to keep his name alive amongst end times students of prophecy, he nailed it yesterday. A direct descendant of Vlad the Impaler who waits 70 years to become king of England, and his official portrait has him swimming in a sea of blood red. Well done, old chap, and cheerio. But wait, there’s something else you should know.

“For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.” Revelation 16:6 (KJB)

Not only is his portrait swimming in a sea of blood red, it is also a huge portrait, approaching Genesis 6 giants size. As if the red was not shocking enough it has to be physically intimidating as well. Now let’s talk about that butterfly. King Charles III attends a church that at one time was a Christian church, the Church of England, but in our day is a functional Roman Catholic institution. Charles is well-versed and steeped in New Age spirituality, so the butterfly in his portrait would signal his ‘rebirth’ as a king, a ‘new beginning’, as well as perhaps a ‘message from the spirit world’. Whatever you think of him and his portrait, people across the board are duly shocked by what they saw, and they should be. It is a shocking piece of art, and just maybe, a message of what’s to come. One last thing. In the main photo for this article, I took the liberty of showing you his portrait two times, with the one photo given a horizontal 180-degree flip. If you look in the middle of this hand-painted and intentional portrait, you see the head of Baphomet. But I’m sure that’s just another one of those crazy ‘coincidences’, right?

A Shock of Red for a Royal Portrait of King Charles III

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES: Royal portraits, as a rule, tend to be fairly staid, predictable affairs. Full of symbolism, sure, but generally symbolism of the traditional, establishment kind: symbols of state, of office, of pomp and lineage. Which is why the new official portrait of King Charles III by Jonathan Yeo, the first since the king’s coronation, has created such a controversy.

A larger-than-life (7.5 foot-by-5.5 foot) canvas, the portrait shows the king standing in his Welsh Guards uniform, hands on the hilt of his sword, a half-smile on his face, with a butterfly hovering just over his right shoulder. His entire body is bathed in a sea of crimson, so his face appears to be floating.

LOOK IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS PHOTO AND YOU WILL CLEARLY SEE THE HEAD OF BAPHOMET

Though the butterfly was apparently the key piece of semiology — meant, Mr. Yeo told the BBC, to represent Charles’s metamorphosis from prince to sovereign and his longstanding love of the environment — it was the painting’s primary color that almost instantaneously gave new meaning to the idea of “seeing red.” It was practically begging for interpretation.

“To me it gives the message the monarchy is going up in flames or the king is burning in hell,” one commentator wrote under the royal family’s Instagram post when the portrait was unveiled.

“It looks like he’s bathing in blood,” another wrote. Someone else raised the idea of “colonial bloodshed.” There were comparisons to the devil. And so on. There was even a mention of the Tampax affair, a reference to an infamous comment by Charles revealed when his phone was hacked during the demise of his marriage to Diana, Princess of Wales.

It turns out that red is a trigger color for almost everyone — especially given the somewhat meta endeavor that is royal portraiture: a representation of a representation, made for posterity. READ MORE

King Charles III was the opening speaker for the COP 28 Global Warming Conference in Dubai, he did not disappoint. He called for a swift return to paganism, to be like the indigenous people who worshipped the earth, and to allow that to connect and drive our global society.

Russell Brand Was ‘Baptized’ Into The Roman Catholic Church, It Was Not The Believers Baptism Of Romans 6 According To The Scriptures, Pray For His Salvation

Published

Russell Brand has no testimony of salvation after being baptized into the Roman Catholic Church, he got wet but not saved

Much has been made in recent days about the baptism of Hollywood actor and social media star Russell Brand, and we would do well to compare this and all such topics to what the scripture tells us is true about these things. Our starting point regarding Russell Brand is to see if we can figure out exactly what he was baptized in to, and fortunately, we already have that information. Russell Brand has been baptized into the Roman Catholic Church created by the Emperor Constantine in the 4th century.

“Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” Romans 6:3,4 (KJB)

We could almost end our quest here, now that we know that Brand has become a Roman Catholic. But for the sake of fairness we shall continue. The second thing we need to ascertain if we can find his testimony of salvation, so far I have come across nothing that would indicate he has heard Paul’s gospel of the death, burial and resurrection on the third day of Jesus Christ according to the scripture. If you have a link to his salvation testimony please post it in the comments section below this article.

The third thing we need to look at as what Russell Brand thinks he has done in getting baptized into the Roman Catholic Church. Is he aware of his sinful condition? Is he trusting the shed blood of Jesus Christ alone? I have reviewed multiple videos posted by Brand, and he thinks that his good works are now necessary to maintain his state as a Christian. About his baptism, Brand says he has now been ‘awakened and untethered’ to this ‘new level of consciousness’. In his mind, Jesus is a thing, not a Person, and he has joined this mystical group of knowledge seekers much like the Rosicrucians. He has religion all right, he just doesn’t have Jesus, and he doesn’t have Jesus because no one gave him the gospel. Joining the Roman Catholic Church makes you a member of that organization, it doesn’t save your soul. In the Bible, people are baptized after getting saved, and then they were added to the church.

If you want to do something nice for Russell Brand, pray the Lord will send born again Christians his way to give him the gospel, that’s the nicest thing you could do for him. Remember back in 2019 when Kanye West pretended to get saved, and what an unholy mess all that turned out to be? In 2024, West is a Jew-hating, antisemite who performs with satanists and is getting ready to launch a porn channel. You know what Kanye didn’t have 5 years ago? He didn’t have a testimony of salvation, and neither does Russell Brand in 2024. I was a Roman Catholic for 30 years before I got saved, so I know just what a godless mess the Roman Catholic Church truly is. Pray for Russell Brand to get saved, because he’s not and he very much needs to be.
