Mysticism- Ignatius of Loyola, Pt.1

This entry is part 3 of 4 in the series Mysticism

Most evangelicals would recognize & reject occult practices like mediums,  the Ouija board, etc. knowing the Bible condemns and calls this an abomination. But sadly thousands without knowing are embracing occult practices by accepting mystical Spiritual Exercises. As an ex-Catholic it breaks my heart to see evangelicals following Catholic saints or their mystical teachings.

It is very important to examine what is the spirit behind any spiritual practice 1 John 4:1 before we open the door & welcome them 2 Jn.1:10. Some people will say that what they are learning is in the Bible, but beloved please remember satan is a master of deception! Always check who were the mentors of that teacher, or where their doctrine came from. One of the most used mystic exercises belong to Jesuit founder Ignatius of Loyola.

Great peace have those who love Your law, ( instructions, teachings H8451)
And nothing causes them to stumble.(H4383)‘. Psalm 119:165

With so many religions in the world, but even with so many different denominations & interpretations among Christians themselves, how do we know that what we have been taught about Jesus Christ is the truth?

‘Unio Mystica’

This entry is part 7 of 8 in the series Unsound Doctrines

A few years back in a bible study group we were presented with The Truth Project, (1). I remember their eighth lesson was: Unio Mystica: Am I Alone?  ‘Unio mystica’, as defined by presenter Mr. Tackett (a Calvinist), is the mystical union between God and man. I heard before the term used by mystics of the Catholic Church & also in New Age writings, but it was first time I heard the word from an ‘Evangelical’ teacher.  Now the term is becoming more & more common these days.

The Passion Translation

This entry is part 4 of 4 in the series Bible Versions

The Passion Translation (TPT) is a New Testament bible translation with Song of Songs, Psalms & Proverbs, made by New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) apostle Brian Simmons (who works under apostle Ché Ahn). Normally the Bible translations are written by teams of scholars who are very knowledgeable of the original languages. Brian Simmons is not a theologian, doesn’t have knowledge of Hebrew or Greek, he’s the only translator of this version & claims that every book and footnote was evaluated by respected scholars and 5 editors but curiously no names are given.

The name Passion he said, came from an angel named ‘Passion’ which he saw in one of his meetings & the Lord told him this ‘angel of passion’ is with his ministry.

The Manifested Sons of God

This entry is part 6 of 8 in the series Unsound Doctrines

 “And we beseech you brethren, to know (G1492) them which labour among you…” 1 Th. 5:12

This is a distinctive Gnostic doctrine (attaining godhood) that came out of the Latter Rain Movement & was taught by William Branham, who also said that Jesus emptied Himself by pouring Himself into the church and that his church was now the fullness of God in bodily form.

Rhema vs. Logos

This entry is part 5 of 8 in the series Unsound Doctrines

A long time ago at my church, I was taught that there was a difference between the Greek words Logos and Rhema, both translate ‘word‘. I don’t know if that was a regular Christian teaching out pastor had or if it had to do because at the time he was being influenced by the ‘New Apostolic Reformation (NAR)’ teachers. But we were taught that:

  • Rhema meant a “fresh spoken/living” word, & Logos meant “written” word.

God’s Voice?

This entry is part 4 of 8 in the series Unsound Doctrines

All moves of the Spirit, insights, all “whispers in the heart” should be checked against Scripture. There is a reason why God besides sending us His Son & His Holy Spirit, also gave us His Word. How can we know for sure something is from God? By reading the Bible. Our final authority in doctrine & practice is the Word of God, not men. If any doctrine, manifestation, spiritual exercise (activation), etc. is NOT in the Scriptures, then beloved we should avoid it, we don’t need it! Be very careful with those teachers who say they have new revelations from God! 2 Tim. 3:16-17 says:

Dominion or Kingdom Now Theology

This entry is part 2 of 8 in the series Unsound Doctrines

When we put aside the Truth of the Bible in exchange for the uncertainty of feelings & emotions we are essentially leaving ‘faith in what God said’ over to what our easily deceitful hearts dictate, just like Adam & Eve did in the garden.

Dominion Theology is the believe, that it is Christians’ job to to take control or exercise dominion of the world,  imposing a ‘biblical’ rule. They said ‘Christ will not return, until the church had claimed dominion over ALL of the world’s governments and institutions‘, meaning the 7 mountains or spheres: 1. Home, 2. Religion/Church, 3. Education, 4. Government (1) & military, 5. The media, 6. Arts, entertainment & sports, 7. Commerce, science, & technology. They say God gave us the mandate in Genesis 1:28.
