#7.  They are often embraced by the world and popular with the culture.  Many become famous and rich.  Some become the equivalent of "Christian Rock Stars."

"For the time will come when they
will not endure sound doctrine;
but wanting to have their ears tickled,
they will accumulate for themselves
teachers in accordance to their own desires,
  and will turn away their ears from
the truth and will turn aside to myths."
-2 Timothy 4:3-4

They are "ear-tickling" sell-outs (see Joel Osteen as a classic example).  Yet Jesus made it crystal clear what life would be like for His true spokesmen.

"If you were of the world, the world
would love its own; but because you
are not of the world, but I chose you
out of the world, because of this
the world hates you.  Remember the
word that I said to you, 'A slave is not
greater than his master.’ If they persecuted
Me, they will also persecute you;
if they kept My word, they will
keep yours also."
-John 15:19-20

And why is the real messanger of Jesus so reviled by the world?  Because he speaks the truth in an age that has embraced falsehood.  He shines a "light" into the darkness.  He exposes the "evil" that men love (See John 3:17-19).  And, like his Master before Him, he brings a message that the world does not want to hear. 

"For this is a rebellious people,
false sons, sons who refuse to listen
to the instruction of the Lord... And to
the prophets, “You must not prophesy
to us what is right, Speak to us
pleasant words, prophesy illusions.'"

-Isaiah 30:9-10

And so the "false prophet" becomes "2-faced" (see Rick Warren).   Much like modern politicians, they say what they think the people want to hear.

They are compromisers who have justified their compromise.

who brought journey for the screen, and brought Han Solo alive.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
