Bill Johnson, Jesus Culture and Bethel Church

HT: Thanks, Jenny L.

Redeemingmoments



Lord, thank You for the visitors who come each day.  Many hostile to what has been shared here.  I pray that You would move them to prayerfully and carefully examine the evidence here, against the truth of Your Word.  I pray we all will do that in all things. Please touch their conscience regarding whether they are seeking You, or signs and wonders.  I pray that they will also consider whether they have been told of You in truth.   That they will read before defending this man, the things he says of you that are lies preaching another Jesus.

In Your Son’s name Jesus, that precious name above all names, may all the glory be Yours.

What is the good news, the gospel?

VIP Reserved Seating, Popcorn at the Door, Fire Special Effects at Christ Fellowship

From the IS NOT SATIRE blog…

Is Not Satire

ChristFellowshipHeader07202016aChrist Fellowship is handing out popcorn at the door, giving away VIP reserved seating, and conducting a special effects smoke flame show with Ironman on stage during their official Sunday worship service. The VIP reserved seating has a mini refrigerator with drinks, hot popcorn, and candy. To potentially qualify for the VIP reserved seating you have to take a picture of yourself by a movie set at a church campus, post it to social media, and then tag the photo. Their stage has a huge AT THE MOVIES background.

Listen, there are people who could spend many dense paragraphs writing more than I’m going to write. They’re free to do so. I’m just going to get to the heart of the issue and keep it as succinct as is possible.

This is not the type of atmosphere an official church worship service should have. This may be fine for an informal church outreach…

How A.A.’s fundamentalism chains people to the program

Ineffective. Overrated. A  new age fundamentalist religion. Many have died because they have been trapped in A.A. through its fear-induced teachings.

My Word Like Fire

For nearly nine years My Word Like Fire has unearthed the unholy origin and history of Alcoholics Anonymous, and warned that A.A. is an anti-biblical religion. All this you can find on this blog.

In several articles we have noted that A.A. is a new age religion (where anything and everything can be defined as “god”), but is nevertheless rigidly fundamentalist in key areas.

Irving Peter Gellman observes, “A member who suggests that A.A. is not as effective as maintained, and who implies that some improvement might be made, will be censured when broaching these ideas. The A.A. program is deemed infallible, whereas other methods are considered less than perfect.” [1]

Here is where the A.A. fundamentalism comes from. The following is a passage from How It Works, which is read at the beginning of each and every A.A. meeting. Consider what is being said here:

“Rarely have we…

The strange origin of AA’s pagan symbol

The “anything and everything” definition of god, and the 12 Step religion that has saturated our culture with higher power theology, must be included as key factors in the rise of the apostate church.

My Word Like Fire

Okay, so where did the AA symbol come from?  Why did AA co-founder Bill Wilson choose the triangle within the circle?

In Alcoholics Anonymous Comes Of Age, he writes, “That we have chosen this symbol is perhaps no mere accident. The priests and seers of antiquity regarded the circle enclosing the triangle as a means of warding off spirits of evil, and AA’s circle of Recovery, Unity, and Service has certainly meant all that to us and much more.”

(Alcoholics Anonymous Comes Of Age, pg.139) (bold mine)

Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised. 15 But he who is spiritual appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one. 16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. (1 Corinthians 2:14-16 NASB)

In our continued look at the growing apostasy within evangelicalism, the more we dig, the more we are finding that those whom we have been suspecting of compromise for some time now, actually have been on that path longer than we suspected. I believe that we are just now discovering this for two reasons. No one was really looking in that direction and God is answering our prayers, opening the doors of information and…

The Alpha Course–An Evangelical Contradiction

Co-author Chris Lawson writes:

This new Booklet Tract that I co-authored with Mary Danielsen was recently released in May 2016, through Lighthouse Trails Publishing. This booklet is available online if you would like to read it, or purchase a copy. Mary has also written other Booklet Tracts which can be found here.

If you live in the United Kingdom you’ll most likely be aware of the fact that Nicky Gumbel’s ALPHA program has been widely popularized through drastically compromised churches, popular ecumenical leaders and musicians, and the Roman Catholic Church. In fact, ALPHA even has an international Roman Catholic ALPHA series that has been promoted by the popes. Read more about this in my article, ALPHA COURSE: Nicky Gumbel’s Alpha Course Being Absorbed by Roman Catholic Ecumenism.

Ryle, Ambrose, and Martyn Lloyd-Jones on holiness

If we would grow in holiness and become more sanctified, we must continually go on as we began, and be ever making fresh applications to Christ.” — J.C. Ryle

Consider the Christ that looked off heaven and heavenly things for you, how much more should you look off earth and earthly things, the world and worldly things for Him? — Isaac Ambrose

Holiness is characteristic of every Christian. If we are not holy, our profession of Christ is valueless. — Martyn Lloyd-Jones

Advice to John Wesley from his mother

Whatever weakens your reason, impairs the tenderness of your conscience, obscures your sense of God, or takes off the [desire for] spiritual things … that thing is sin to you, however innocent it may be in itself.

“Spiritual information about Pokemon” by Preston Young

A warning from several years ago by a teenage researcher concerned with the occultic aspects of Pokemon.

My Word Like Fire

[Note from MWLF: 14 year old researcher Preston Young shares a few things about the Pokémon game. His concern is that it’s “sneakily teaching kids and adults stuff in the occult.” This is an area where most adults have little knowledge.]

Preston Young writes:

What’s wrong with Pokémon? Here are a few things I found. I got this info from Pokémon X.

1. Throughout the game you must battle random Pokémon trainers (Pokémon owners), all of whom have different hobbies. Some are Fishermen, Tourists, or Pokémon rangers, but two of them caught my attention: Psychics and Hex Maniacs, a.k.a witches. This is bad already, but what caught my attention even more is what they said before and after you meet them: For example the Hex Maniac will say “I’ve known forever—since my PREVIOUS LIFE –that we would meet here today and face off!” The previous life mentioned here comes from…

AA’s spiritual Broad Highway invitation contradicts Christ’s warning in Matthew 7:13

My Word Like Fire

There are three A.A. Big Book references to a broad spirituality.

1) “We feel we are on the Broad Highway, walking hand in hand with the Spirit of the Universe.”– AA Big Book, pg.75 (bold mine)

2) “We found that God does not make too hard terms with those who seek Him. To us, the Realm of the Spirit is broad, roomy, all inclusive; never exclusive or forbidding to those who earnestly seek. It is open, we believe, to all men. When, therefore, we speak to you of God, we mean your own conception of God.”– AA  Big Book, pg.46-47 (bold mine)

3) “If our testimony helps sweep away prejudice, enables you to think honestly, encourages you to search diligently within yourself, then, if you wish, you can join us on the Broad Highway. With this attitude you cannot fail. The consciousness of your belief is sure to come to…
