Babylon and Its System, Part 3

Van Tassel, in the 1950’s, held public meetings where the public could ask questions of Ashtar and where answers would be provided, channelling their information through Van Tassel. The Ashtar Command revelations were compiled into a book that details future events that will take place on the earth. Interestingly, Ashtar himself is said to be, “a Beloved Christian Commander and a very beautiful Being.” [3] Fascinating, isn’t it? Angel of light maybe to deceive? I think so. See 2 Corinthians 11:14.

God in My Everything?

The more we begin to rely on our emotions and how we feel about something, the less likely we are going to look to God’s Word as the final and absolute authority for life and practice as Christians. This appears to be what Ken Shigematsu (and too many others to count), is doing. His books attempt to draw people away from the truth of the cross and Scripture into the arena of “feelz” using monastic rituals to get us there. He wants us to embrace the type of rituals that many ancient orders used for the express purpose of getting closer to God. Yet, these things are not in Scripture so we should be very concerned.

The Church Becoming a Circus, Part 2

Large portions of the visible church are becoming little more than circuses where “motivational speakers” work up crowds to a level of excitement the first century Christians apparently knew nothing about. Worship leaders crank the volume, pound on the drums, produce high-flying electric guitar licks and the crowd goes wild. I recall one church we attended in California where a very well known secular guitar player (who said he was a Christian) became the worship leader. The way the music changed was interesting. Each service was literally a concert complete with drum, guitar, bass, and keyboard solos. There really was no difference between that and attending a Journey concert except for the actual songs.

When Marketing Replaces the Holy Spirit We Get Corporate Christianity

The sad fact of the matter is that because religious organizations are too often seen as corporate structures, the same type of abuse that happens in secular humanistic organizations can and does happen in religious ones. The difference though is that the abuse that occurs within churches, parachurches, and other religious organizations is often done under the guise of biblical doctrine and theology. It’s enough to make the average Christian puke. No wonder Jesus says what He says about most of the seven churches in Revelation 2-3. It’s sickening.

Cultural Marxism and the Great Falling Away

I believe Paul was implying something far wider in scope than simply talking about those who professed to be Christians and then walked away completely. I now believe he was talking about a huge cultural shift that would take place worldwide in the End Times. I especially believe this would occur in places like America where the founding documents of our country referenced God, understood that He exists as Creator, and in fact, laid the foundation for this country solidly upon biblical principals. While this does not presuppose a covenant with God, the clear reality is that He was included in the process of creating America.

Rick Warren is Perplexing

There is absolute truth today. It is found only in Jesus Christ and the salvation that He has made possible. It is found in no other “truth” that is not truth at all. This is what people like Rick Warren are supposed to teach. They are not supposed to tickle people’s ears, leaving them to continue walking toward destruction. That is something that absolutely needs to be rebuked.

Brian McLaren: Assaulting Truth With a Vengeance

A New Kind of Christianity will serve as a lure for Bible-illiterate Christians. For believers who know the Word of God, McLaren’s heresy will sadden and astound. His book is aimed at the young, and at people who have perhaps grown up in households with little or no faith. It is aimed at the unsaved and the uncertain. It is for the disappointed and disenchanted, and for people who simply know no better. If you have a gripe against God or His people, this book will lick your wounds. But what this book will not do is provide any measure of godly hope and biblical virtue.

Bill Slabaugh Wastes No Time Gettin’ Down and Dirty!

It seems relatively clear that Slabaugh is angry against something and someone. I cannot help but wonder though if his anger is misplaced. He seems to be blending two different groups into one, which ultimately creates a group he labels New Pharisaism. Let’s face it, who does not love to hate the Pharisees? It is my opinion that Slabaugh needs to back down just a trifle, and take the time to determine whether or not there is any truth in what the people he calls Pharisees are saying. Certainly he is convinced that his opinion is the correct one. I’m assuming he would go on to say that there is no Emergent Church, no mysticism within the church, no eastern meditation, and certainly not what would be classified as New Age.

Let’s Talk About the Emergent Church…the REAL Culprits of End Times Apostasy!

What is taught within the Emergent Church? What do they think about Jesus? What do they espouse regarding salvation?
