Spiritual Deception

Spiritual DecptionSpiritual DecpetionJesus said on the Mount of Olives (Matt. 24) that deception would be the primary cultural sign of the last days. Even some of God’s “elect” might be deceived by false theologies. “Good would be called evil and evil good” (Isaiah 5:20). Men would substitute light for darkness and darkness for light. Apostasy would consume churches and denominations that were once solid.

San Francisco, California – Rob Bell, author of the best-selling and controversial book Love Wins, which challenges the Christian teaching of Hell, came out in support of homosexual marriage on Sunday and called “narrow” Christians to repentance.

Benny Hinn & God's Ghost Writer

By far the most controversial aspect of Benny Hinn's ministry is his claim to have the "anointing", the special power given to him by God to heal the sick. At Hinn's Miracle Crusades, he has allegedly healed attendees of blindness, deafness, cancer, AIDS, and severe physical injuries.

A Plea for Grace (Part 2 of 2)

Scroll down for part 1

In the first half of this plea for grace, I examined a number of ministries that I am convinced I would have lost many great spiritual insights if I had written off their teachings because I disagreed with some part of what they have to say. We will now explore where we as Christians should draw the line concerning whether a ministry is apostate or not.

A Plea for Grace (Part 1 of 2)

NOTE: Olive Tree Ministries agrees with Dave Reagan as we continue to speak out against "contentious contenders." Contend for the faith in love, please.

First, let's keep in mind that there are no perfect ministries. All of them, including Lamb & Lion, are headed up by people and are composed of people, and people are flawed.

I would urge you, therefore, to look for the good — for that which lines up with the Scriptures — and either ignore or criticize responsibly what does not. Otherwise, you are going to miss some spiritual blessings.

Let me give you some examples from my personal perspective.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, students in public schools cannot be indoctrinated with any specific religious belief. Education must be religiously neutral. However, it can be documented that when children are being introduced to yoga and witchcraft in public schools, parents are told not be alarmed.

Emergence Christianity “Explosion!”

These post-modern gurus who spawned the whole lets-have-a-conversation-because-we-can’t-possibly-know-absolute-truth-in-scripture thought are still out there, and their numbers aren’t dwindling at all. Not by a long shot. In fact, many of the once prominent voices are in the coaching role as a whole new emerging generation is rising up to take the microphones. No, these emergent leaders not only aren’t dead, they’re converging in conferences all around the nation just like the Evangelicals.

Christianity and Islam are the world’s two largest religions. With 2.18 billion Christians and 1.6 billion Muslims the world-round, it’s safe to say that these two faith systems impact, to a profound extent, social and political events occurring in diverse societies. But what about “Chrislam,” the controversial belief system that combines both traditions to form its own fascinating religious brand?

While you may not be aware of its existence, this controversial faith system has small pockets of adherents in parts of Africa and has garnered a plethora of intrigue — and scrutiny — here in the United States.

What we are now witnessing is the almost-complete takeover of historical evangelicalism by folks like Brian McLaren and his friends. A major plank of their platform is a denial of Bible prophecy and the closely associated support for Israel that has been a hallmark of dispensationalist teachings. The new breed of pastor in America’s pulpits seems to have a particular loathing of the Jewish state. They are also clever enough to stage the takeover in, well, stages. Again, Johnson:

Rob Bell: Populating Hell

Emergent Church Leader, Rob Bell, has lit up the blogosphere with the firestorm he is causing with what many believe to be heretical views on God, Christ, and Salvation in his new book, Love Wins.

The book is currently number one in Amazon's “Religion and Spirituality” section. The subtitle of Bell’s book reads that it is “a book about heaven, hell, and the fate of every person who ever lived.”
