The Importance of Sound Doctrine

This entry is part 1 of 5 in the series Importance of Doctrine

We see today a constant attack against Christ’s doctrine. A growing number of people, especially among proponents of the ecumenical movement & emergent church movement, are now saying: “Doctrine divides, experience unites” or “Doctrine is not important. Let’s lay aside our doctrinal differences and let’s unite.” It sounds nice but sadly is not biblical.

 Is sound doctrine important?  Is truth important?  Of course it is!

Sound doctrine is teaching that agrees with the Bible. When the Bible speaks of sound doctrine, it speaks of absolute truth as laid down by God in His Word.
The word doctrine means instruction, teaching. Noah Webster’s Dictionary defines doctrine as: “That which is laid down as true by an instructor or master.”

Mysticism in the Evangelical Church

There is a persistent attack to debilitate the Christian Church from with in, they are not looking to completely destroy it, but to contaminate it & change it into something else, in order to use it for a different purpose for what it was really created. The way they are working to accomplish this is by bringing subtle false doctrines & infiltrating the church with many false teachers.

“There will not be any disassociation between the Universal church, the Sacred Lodge of all true Masons, and the inner circles of the esoteric societies…In this way, the goals and work of the United Nations shall be solidified and a new Church of God, led by all the religions and by all the spiritual groups, shall put an end to the great heresy of separateness.” Theosophist Alice Bailey, more on Fanatic for Jesus

Some of this false doctrines that are gaining acceptance in Christian churches are Western Mysticism, Catholic Mysticism,  Contemplative prayer, Gnosticism, etc.  We don’t find any of these practices in the Bible.

Mysticism is a word derived from the Greek that means ‘conceal or mystery’.  Mysticism is a claim of direct union with God that bypasses the mind & also bypasses the Lord Jesus Christ & His doctrine, He is the only mediator between God & men (1 Timothy 2:5,   Acts 4:12, John 4:16).  The American Heritage Dictionary defines Mysticism as: Belief in direct experience of transcendent reality or God, especially by means of contemplation and asceticism instead of rational thought.

Mysticism is an attempt to gain ultimate knowledge of God by a direct experience that bypasses the mind. The strong influence of Catholic mysticism has helped immensely to transform the New Age Movement from being merely a counter-culture sub-culture to becoming a new source of spiritual vision for the world. Catholic mysticism has very effectively and subtly invaded many facets of life without being recognized or critically examined.  Christiananswers

Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism – Pt.3

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism

Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils” 1 Tim. 4:1

Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrinecontinue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee. 1 Timothy 4:16

We are not trying here to accuse people, we don’t question their  motives, their hearts, personal lives,  characters, etc. They may be nice people or even sincere, but that doesn’t mean they may not be deceived.  We just question their doctrines in light of the Scriptures, especially because our salvation depends on the true doctrine we find in the Word of God, not in the words of men.  We can’t take verses out of context that’s what sects do and the reason why they are in error. Exhortation and admonition (right judgment) seek to gently correct and restore.

I was a Catholic half of my life, most of my family still are, I love them, have witnessed to them and pray for their salvation, but they are not following the doctrines of the bible, the teachings of Jesus, they are following doctrines of men. It’s true that there may be some of them  having revelation of who is Christ but surely they are also in their way out of that system like many of us did, please let us not forget to pray for them.

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of menMatthew 15: 8-9

Many in my family who are Charismatic Catholics still lost, they don’t change, they need to believe the true gospel. I was a partner (prayer & financial support) with Benny Hinn ministries for 3 years. Please understand that exposing all this is very saddening, I don’t like it, but it’s necessary so others won’t get hurt. Hinn hosted Canon Andre White, a Knight Templar & ecumenic Anglican Archbishop, who is associated to the Knight of Malta Mashesh Chavda & Todd Bentley.

She promotes Catholic ministries and gave a prophetic word for the Catholic Church on Oct.2013, about “a move of God coming to the Catholic Church” without them leaving the Catholic Church. I’m sorry but I don’t believe it, specially after knowing what she teaches and knowing how far away is the Catholic Church from the Word of God.

* I read of a movement in the Catholic Church that is requesting prayer for a New Pentecost, and the account is in a book written by an ecumenical & false teacher.   I believe something is being planned, like a fake revival among some of the Catholic youth.  This could convince many Christians that they are part of the body of Christ. The Vatican is trying to unite all religions in one, and this fake revival among them could help accelerate the unification between evangelicals and Catholics. Time will tell.

 

 

Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism – Pt.1

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Evangelical Leaders & Ecumenism

Ecumenical meeting with Pope Francis, June 2014

Sadly we  found that some Churches, organizations & colleges mainly belonging to the movements of  Neo Calvinism,  The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) & The Word of Faith (WoF) movement, (as well as some other  organizations), are in a great number getting involved with the ecumenical movement. They  have links with one another, and are mostly Dominionists or ‘Kingdom Now‘ theology, which believe that it is Christians’ job to take over the world and occupy or exercise dominion, imposing a biblical rule. They said Christ would not return, until the church had claimed dominion over all of the world’s governments and institutions (7 mountains or spheres).

But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many” Matthew 20:25-28

The most painful part is all the people that they are causing to fall away from the truth of the gospel of Christ. We ask you to please pray for all the sheep that are being harmed or affected by these movements, there are a lot of sincere and God  loving Christians following their wrong teachings. (Our church got involved with some belonging to the NAR movement, we were baby Christians at the time and we embraced them not knowing, latter the Lord opened our eyes). If we get the opportunity to talk to them let us make sure we do it out of love and not because we are trying to win any arguments. Remember we work to glorify God, not ourselves.  As the Lord leads please also pray for the leaders and promoters of these ecumenical movement, that the Lord may open their eyes and grant them repentance. Teachers will be judged more severely (James 3:1).

The intention with the following list is just to show how some known leaders are getting involved with ecumenism & Catholic Mysticism (Lectio divina, Contemplative prayer, etc.), so Christians can exercise biblical discernment, we try to prove it with evidence in the links.  If one of your favorite preachers is in the ecumenic list please don’t get offended and don’t dismiss the warning, but just pray to God for revelation and pray for that preacher also. We are not trying to discuss here about their doctrines, even there may be a link or more doing that. Some of these teachers/leaders are:

-John Arnott, & Carol- (NAR) Pastors of ‘Catch the Fire’ former Toronto Airport Fellowship, (a Vineyard group) of the Toronto Revival–  J. Arnott was a speaker on Fire & Fusion Conf. 2014 evangelicals with Catholics. Also see picture above of ecumenical meeting with pope Francis. The Arnotts were part of the group of apostles that commissioned Todd Bentley.  See Bentley in their church of Toronto, also Bill Johnson at min 4:31. Here the Arnotts with Benny Hinn.

Heidi Baker in Bethel Church of Bill Johnson. (NAR), (Repeating over and over a word is called Mantra in New Age, a technique used to enter into a “trance” or altered state of consciousness, also used in self-hypnosis). She is a fan of Mother Theresa, her organization ‘Iris Ministries’ (Bethel Pastor Kris Vallotton is the Director, & secretary Stacey Campbell) is the major component of Partners in Harvest, under the leadership of  ecumenical apostles John and Carol Arnott”. She also organized the anointing ceremony for Todd Bentley at Lakeland, Florida and had worked with Bentley in Africa. Christianity Today explains that “One night, she had a vision of Jesus in which she literally ate his flesh and drank his blood.” The article further reports “Scholar McClymond describes Heidi as a ‘practical mystic, like Teresa of Avila.’” She and her husband Rolland form part of the Revival Alliance, together with the Arnotts, Bill & Beni Johnson, Randy Clark, etc. all belonging to the NAR. Also check this Video.

Be Still DVD.  An infomercial of Contemplative Prayer. Presenters include Beth Moore, Max Lucado, Richard Foster, Dallas Willard and many others.

Rob Bell, (Neo Calv. & Emergent)

Todd Bentley, (NAR) Lakeland Revival. He teaches Contemplative Prayer.  When some discerning pastors began to question his doctrine a group of NAR’s apostles supported & commissioned him on June 2008, 2 weeks later his sin of adultery & drunkenness was exposed by the secular media (ABC’s Nightline). He divorced his wife Shonnah and the revival was over on August 2008. A year later and already married with Jessa, he was restored to work at Rick Joyner’s church and recommended by Rick Joyner, Bill Johnson &  Jack Deere (at the time Deere was a bible teacher at Mike Bickle’s Church) all 3 were in charge of the restoration process.  His new wife works now with him.  See Bentley preaching in Rick Joyner’s Church and being rebuked publicly by some Christian leaders. More here about these revivals.

Mike Bickle (NAR) Bickle founder of IHOP. His “calling” began with a prophet named Augustine Alcala. Then 2 prophets, Paul Cain who worked with Oral Roberts & W. Branham (& who later confessed homosexuality & alcoholism) & Bob Jones (also involved in sexual misconduct) laid down the blue prints of his ministries. Bickle has Catholic speakers at his conferences. He states “Everybody is called to live in the contemplative lifestyle. Everyone! Everyone! Everyone!” & also teaches contemplative prayer.  He stated: “I want this book to be the manual for IHOPKC.” referring to a Catholic Mystics book “Fire with In“.  Also check hereTruman’s Prayer Center,  Mike Bickle is an apostle in the Apostolic Reformation Movement who thinks they are greater than the apostles in Biblical times. Bickle is the executive director of the multiple ministries of IHOP and is the senior pastor of Forerunner Christian Fellowship. “This is not all about “prayer.” The Charisma article explains how prayer is being turned into activism, and this is the activism that is now becoming overly political. According to Rick Joyner Bickle is also a Knight of Malta. He is part of the agenda of The Order of the Mustard Seed.  More here, also check IHOP in pt.2. New:  Bickle with pope Francis!

William  ‘Jerry’ Boykin, (NAR) LTG (Ret.), Speaker, promoter of ecumenism. He holds the title of Grand Chancellor of the ecumenical order of knight of Malta.

He speaks now at several Calvary Chapels.   Video.

-Francis Chan, (Neo Calv.), He seems a very nice person, but nice people can also get deceived, please pray for him. He endorsed New Apostolic teacher Mike Bickle & speaks at his church. He spoke at Rick Warrens’ Saddleback Church and was overflowing with words of praise and admiration for him. He also spoke at Dublin International Eucharist Conference – Dublin, Ireland on July 2012 a Catholic conference. Chan apologized to his church for inviting ex Catholic Mike Gendron, a Reformer like him, who believes Catholics need salvation, Chan cut him off and told the audience it was unloving to insinuate that Catholics are not Christians. Chan practicing Catholic mysticism Lectio Divina with Reformers John Piper, Louie Giglio, Beth Moore & Reformed Rapper Lacrae  at ‘Passion 2012’ Conference (See about Lectio Divina ). In his book ‘Crazy Love ‘ he quotes Henri Nouwen who was a Roman Catholic priest, that was into mysticism. He also praises Shane Clairborne author of “Irresistible Revolution”, who worked  about 3 months with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, & founded a group of new monks called the Simple Way, a form of new monasticism.

Mahesh Chavda, He is ecumenical and a Knight of Malta, knighted with Rick Joyner and Bob Connor (according to Joyner’s own words, I heard the tape but don’t want to promote it).  He has been working to unite Catholics with protestants. He’s a pastor and mentor of the Anglican and ecumenic Knight Templar http://templartimes.smotj.org/, Cannon Andrew White, in the video you’ll see Todd Bentley talking to Chavda’s wife. On some of his meetings fall gold glitter and feathers, same like Bill Johnson and others like them. People have tested the gold dust falling in different places an none of them are gold, like people from Bethel had their particles tested and found they are NOT gold but glitter.  You can see this video about Signs and Wonders.

Randy Clark , (NAR) Was a pastor of a Vineyard Church, founded ‘Global Awakening. He started the Toronto blessing, but he received the anointing from Rodney Howard Browne. R. Clark was one of the ‘apostles’ that commissioned Todd Bentley.  He says:”I believe that the ecumenical movement in the body of Christ is very important to God”, Charisma Magazine.  His page mentions: Randy’s ministry crosses denominational lines. From the Westminster Chapel in London, to the St. Thomas the Apostle Roman Catholic Church in Australia. He also promotes Catholic ministries, and his Healing school (teaching material and students) is also ecumenical.

Kenneth Copeland, & Gloria, (Word of Faith), with pope Francis on picture above. He was Freemason Oral Roberts’ disciple & his personal Pilot. Mr Copeland stated: “You’re all God. You don’t have a God living in you; you are one! … When I read in the Bible where God tells Moses, ‘I AM,’ I say, ‘Yah, I AM too!‘” –  ‘The Force of Love,’ Kenneth Copeland, tape BBC-56. Also check ‘Are the Copelands Freemasons?”

Masonry in the Church? – Counterfeit Christianity

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Masonry in the Church?

A number of converted witches are going about the country today, warning that Satanists and practicing witches are infiltrating the church — especially charismatic churches. Some of these former witches have authored books telling of a diabolical plot by evil witches to enter congregations posing as super-spiritual Christians. Their purpose is to deceive and shipwreck pastors and to lead multitudes of naive believers into occult worship.

Many of these evil witches, they say, are already firmly established in numerous churches, controlling both the pastor and congregation and causing great confusion, wickedness, divorce — even death. We have received many letters in our office from people who say they believe their pastor must be under some kind of demonic influence — and I believe many of these letters are very legitimate.

Pastor David Wilkerson, March 5, 1990

 

Notice the 2 owls, the owl is a symbol of the occult. The owl has direct links back to the worship of Ishtar (Isis), or the Queen of Heaven. It represents earthly wisdom, knowledge (Gnosis).  “This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilishJames 3:15

Masonry in the Church? – Introduction

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Masonry in the Church?

Freemasonry is Satan’s Trojan horse, and it is in the Church of our day; and all too often people won’t listen to the warnings which are being sounded.   Pierce Dodson, Baptist Pastor.

Graham

Masons Pay Tribute to Billy Graham

Billy Graham & wife Ruth receiving medal from 33° Freemason Newt Gingrich & 33° Freemason StormThurmond. Also check here, and here.

In an interview with ecumenical & freemason TV evangelist Robert Schuller (May 31, 1997), Billy Graham responding to Schuller’s question about the future of Christianity, said “God’s purpose for this age is to call out a people for His name. And that’s what God is doing today, He’s calling people out of the world for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world, or the Christian world or the non-believing world. They are members of the Body of Christ because they’ve been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something that they don’t have, and they turn to the only light that they have, and I think that they are saved, and that they’re going to be with us in heaven.

“I’ve found that my beliefs are essentially the same as those of orthodox Roman Catholics.”  Billy Graham, McCall’s Magazine, Jan. 1978

Graham meeting Pope John Paul II

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6.)

Billy Graham (video), Robert Schuller, James Dobson, as well as Rick Warren are publicly friends with many Masons.  Some may say there isn’t  enough proof that these men are masons, we are not trying to proof they are, but just saying there is enough evidence that all of them are ecumenics and good friends of Freemasons. Please pray for Billy Graham and all these men. God died on the cross for all mankind for ‘all have sinned’. Pray that the Lord Jesus Christ will turn them from error or from falling away, into the everlasting life that only Jesus the Son of the Living God can give.

Masons believe that Christians, Jew and Muslims, worship the same God but with different names. They also believe their light comes from their lodges, but for a true Christian Jesus Christ is their LIGHT (Ephesians 5:14).

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

Manly P. Hall wrote: “The true Mason is not creed-bound. He realizes with the divine illumination of his lodge that as a Mason his religion must be universal: Christ, Buddha or Mohammed, the name means little, for he recognizes only the light and not the bearer. He worships at every shrine, bows before every altar, whether in temple, mosque or cathedral, realizing with his truer understanding the oneness of all spiritual truth.”

The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, Manly P. Hall, 33rd, degree mason. Page 65, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Co. Richmond, Va., 1976.

Masons are Gnostics.  Gnostic derived from the Greek word gnosis, meaning “to know.” The term “gnosticism” refers to a movement in the 2nd century, a heretic movement that  threatened the early church. Gnosticism claims hidden knowledge (esoteric knowledge) leads to salvation, that world (matter) is evil and that only the spirit is good, for that reason Jesus couldn’t be Divine.  Gnostics were divided on Jesus. One view held that he only appeared to have human form but that he was actually spirit only. The other view (the most common ) contended that his divine spirit came upon his human body at baptism and departed before the crucifixion (Kenosis) in other word Jesus is not 100% God & 100% men.  When the apostle Paul wrote that in him dwells All the fullness of the deity bodily Col.2:9  it was a rebuttal against the Gnostics. More info: Theopedia, Let us Reason .

O Timothy! Guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge (#G1108 Gnosis= knowledge) by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen’   1 Timothy 6:20-21

The biblical apostles considered the Gnostics false teachers, but today we embraced them and follow them in our Christian Churches. Many of them call themselves apostles. Something we have learned by our mistakes is that we don’t follow men, nor put our hope & trust  on them but put our hope & trust in God alone and His Word. Psalm 62 & 118:8
