The John 17 Movement is one of many ecumenical groups that works to bring ‘unity’ between Evangelicals & Catholicism. It was founded in May 2015 by pastor Joe Tosini in Phoenix, AZ.

‘Unio Mystica’

This entry is part 7 of 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 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 9 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.

Latter Rain Movement

This entry is part 1 of 9 in the series Unsound Doctrines

Sound doctrine is very important to God, in His Word He directs us to teach it, & hold fast unto it ( 2 John 1:9-11, Titus 2:7,  etc.). For that reason it should also be important to us & it needs to be guarded and contended for. (Jude 3-4, Rom. 16:17-18). More often people depart from the truth (apostasy) because they did not have sound doctrine as their basis.

We as Christians follow the teachings of Jesus (sound doctrine) that are found in the bible, unsound doctrine is the teaching that contradicts or disagree with the Word of God.

Galatians- Chapter 2

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Galatians

Galatians – Part 2

By Brian Franco  (Used with permission)

But when Peter came to Antioch, I withstood him face to face, because he stood condemned. Before certain men came from James, he ate with the Gentiles. But when they came, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing those who were of the circumcision. And the other Jews, likewise, joined together in hypocrisy with him, so that even Barnabas was carried away by their hypocrisy.

But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, “If you, being a Jew, live like a Gentile and not like a Jew, why do you compel the Gentiles to live like Jews?” 2:11-14
