Latest Deceptions Updated July 11, 2006
Are we to be called to be defenders of the Gospel of Christ?
Read this First!
Anything you read on this page, please do our Lord Jesus, yourself and me a favor and instead of just getting informed, Pray for those you read about. There is surely a strange wind blowing today in some of Christendom, but actually, it is simple to understand.. what we are witnessing today is the falling away of the Christian Church and we were told about it many times in scripture.
Dear friends, in this July 2006 update, I would like to focus on
2. Prophets Prophesying Good Things for the USA.
3. News Update! Purpose-Driven Rapper Blasphemy Revealed
Those who believe that through actions taken by them via political/governmental means, it is possible to usher in the kingdom of Christ are deluded and should not be given the time of day. Now I don't claim to know a whole lot about these groups, but from what I have read some of these groups also believe that many of the prophecies that we as Christians are looking forward to being fulfilled have already occurred!
According to Wikipedia, Dominion Theology is: "derived from the Biblical text where God grants humankind "dominion" over the Earth. It is influenced by postmillennialism, a view of the End Times which believes that godliness will eventually pervade secular society (some so-called "Golden Age postmillennialists" believe the present age will culminate in a literal one-thousand-year period of virtual heaven on earth, a millennium) before Jesus returns in a Second Coming .
According to Wikipedia, Kingdom Now Theology is defined as "a theological belief within the Charismatic movement of Protestant Christianity, mainly in the U.S. This theology begins with the belief that God's control over the world ended when Adam and Eve sinned. Since then, the theology goes, God has been trying to reestablish control over the world by seeking a "Covenant people" who will then spread across the earth. Through these "Covenant people," social institutions (including governments and laws) would be brought under God's authority.
Here's the scoop - We are acting in arrogance if we believe that actions we take
2. OR by forcing our beliefs upon the world
would perpetuate and quicken the return of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Politics is one thing that God is not into. I have noticed the past few years that there are more Christians than ever who are trying to push their candidate of choice all in the name of what "God" wants. These people believe they have God's seal of approval in the things they do and the organizations they head.
If there is one thing that we can do for the Kingdom of God, it is to work fervently in order to bring more souls to the Lord. That is where all of our focus must be kept. There are souls yet to be saved. The reason the Lord has delayed his return is because of his great mercy upon us. We should thank God for this mercy. Those who seek to change times and laws in regards to Governmental institutions in the hopes that this will perpetuate Jesus's return have lost their focus.
Jesus didn't say "Go ye into all the world and Force your beliefs upon others", or "Go ye into all the world and push the political candidate of your choice".
He said, Go ye into all the world and PREACH THE GOSPEL".
When are we going to just do what he told us to? We should preach the good news, the gospel message and allow the Holy Spirit to do the rest!
We are men and women who would do well to understand that the time and seasons, we can trust God with. He knows all about it and will have things HIS way. We are to understand and see that the time is short before Christ's return. He is closer to his return than he ever was before.
Prophets Prophesy Good Things for the USA
There is really no need to name them. You have most surely heard their prophecies before. It sort of goes like this: "America, I say there will be financial blessings coming to you". I will restore everything to you, etc.
Now what I don't understand is how anyone could not recognize the tarnished and dilapidated state that the USA is currently in spiritually.
Why are we in this state? Because we will not repent !
We want to regard the things in this world which are important to us without ever regarding the one who GAVE us the things important to us. We pay service to God with our lips, but our hearts are far from him. We are so totally wrapped up in those things which make us feel good and look good but give no thought to the one who fashioned us, our Father God.
Where are our Jeremiah's and Isaiah's? Those prophets who had a fervent desire to tell the truth about the current state of affairs in their nation? Out of love for their God and fellow man, they WARNED nations about their turning away from God and the ramifications if they did not REPENT!
America must be warned that if they do not REPENT and turn back to their God, things in this nation will wax worse and worse NOT better! We must be urged to come back to God in humble repentence for our sinfulness and our turning away from him.
But all we get the majority of the time is smooth things prophesied to us from those who name the name of God.
It's just like the Bible warns us of: The following scriptures are coming to pass big time!
2 Timothy 4:3&4
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord:
10 Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
11 Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.
12 Wherefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, Because ye despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:
13 Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.
July 2006 Latest Deception News Update:
Dear friends, I have warned against the "Purpose Driven" movement for years, read it and weap.
I have listened to the video and even though I was quite prepared for the worst, I had no idea.
Among other blasphemous utterings, here are a few listed for you to read:
"Make the booty drop like the walls of Jericho".
"Do the burning bush".
"Just like Moses we part the red sea".
I am both outraged and speechless at this trash and keep in mind, it was brought to us courtesy of Rick Warren's 2006 Purpose Driven Worship Conference.
The Video is 3.33 minutes long and the link to it is below:
Purpose-Driven Rapper Crosses the Line to Blasphemy By Ingrid Schlueter
Quoting from the above linked content by Ingrid Schlueter: "This video should cause all of us who love our Savior to expose this Purpose Driven blasphemy for what it is. The spirit behind the entire movement is anti-Christ. This video perhaps says it better than anything else. The link is here. Watch and weep for what has happened to the American church:.

Latest Deception: The Gospel of Judas
This latest Gnostic rubbish is only more of the same old heresy we've seen in recent years:
In the article
April 6, 2006: "Gospel of Judas' Surfaces After 1,700 Years"
a few quotes from the above article:
"An early Christian manuscript, including the only known text of what is known as the Gospel of Judas, has surfaced after 1,700 years. The text gives new insights into the relationship of Jesus and the disciple who betrayed him, scholars reported today. In this version, Jesus asked Judas, as a close friend, to sell him out to the authorities, telling Judas he will "exceed" the other disciples by doing so".
This manuscript was written 300 years AFTER the crucifixion of Christ. Quoting from the article:
"The 26-page Judas text is said to be a copy in Coptic, made around A. D. 300, of the original Gospel of Judas, written in Greek the century before".
I believe that it was written by Gnostics, and by the way, there were MANY of them around during that time.
Jesus asked Judas to sell him out? There is not one reference to this ANYWHERE in the Bible.
The devil - not Jesus, convinced Judas to betray Jesus.. see scripture below on this!
The article goes on to say :"You can see how early Christians could say, if Jesus's death was all part of God's plan, then Judas's betrayal was part of God's plan," said Ms. King, the author of several books on the Gospel of Mary. "So what does that make Judas? Is he the betrayer, or the facilitator of salvation, the guy who makes the crucifixion possible?"
Judas was the betrayer, he succumbed to the devil in order to betray Jesus. It was not Jesus who put it into Judas's heart to betray himself! ...Read below scriptures to know who did it.
it is heresy in the most extreme form for anyone to suggest that Judas was the facilitator of salvation, "the guy who makes the crucifixion possible"!
Who convinced Judas to betray Christ?
And supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;
Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve.
I plan on writing more on this if I have time, but for now, don't give heed to this Gnostic rubbish. For that is all it is.

Latest Deception: "The God Who Wasn't There"
an excerpt from their web page : "In this provocative, critically acclaimed documentary, you will discover:
The early founders of Christianity seem wholly unaware of the idea of a human Jesus
The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults
Contemporary Christians are largely ignorant of the origins of their religion
Fundamentalism is as strong today as it ever has been, with an alarming 44% of Americans believing Jesus will return to earth in their lifetimes
And God simply isn't there"

Other Recent Deceptions: The Davinci Code
December 17, 2005 Carlton Pearson - The Price For Preaching Inclusion
"Today Pearson says "90 percent" of his 5,000-member congregation in Tulsa, Okla., has left him. His church, Higher Dimensions Family Church, is in foreclosure. His alma mater, Oral Roberts University, publicly denounced him. When he was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, not one of his preaching buddies bothered to call, he says".
The date is Sept 4, 2002 and I have just heard Bishop Carlton Pearson with my own ears.
In a local radio interview that I just finished listening to out of Tulsa, Oklahoma, I heard Bishop Carlton Pearson say that you do NOT have to be saved through Jesus Christ to go to heaven. He said much more than this though.. :(
I am very glad now that I recorded it, I had hoped that all this hype was not true, but I will leave you to hear this for yourself...
Click on the button above to hear the audio of the interview.
It is around 13 minutes long.

Just an update from me as it's been a while. I watched Kenneth Copeland and he is still preaching the wealth gospel.
I just heard him on television speaking of the "covenant with wealth". What I don't get is why it takes living in a million dollar home or driving luxurious automobiles to preach Christ's gospel to others. We are told repeatedly by these prosperity pushers that it takes money or wealth in order to take God's message to the world. They are correct, but what does that have to do with putting out pleas on their web site to satisfy their OWN desire to own 2 extravagant airplanes?
Surely a less expensive plane would still get the mission accomplished. This is never addressed by those who are peddling the wealth gospel.

First friends, I would like to relay to you what I saw and heard on Sunday, July 4 on Television. A well known preacher was giving his sermon.... While he was talking of the war America is engaged in and how God would give us victory, he tried to back it up with scripture- Here's what he said; "In the bible, God says that if my people who are called by my name will pray, I will heal their land..
I was aghast. He left out much of the scripture he was referring to.. It actually goes something like this:
"If my people, who are called by my name will HUMBLE themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.
Just another example of those shepherds who will do anything, like picking and choosing which scripture they will use and tossing out the rest that their congregations don't want to hear.
We are to repent, plain and simple

Radical new translation makes Bible accessible to unchurched -23/6/04
"In other passages the translator John Henson, a retired Baptist minister, renders “demon possession” as “mental illness” and “Son of Man”, the phrase used frequently to refer to Jesus, as “the Complete Person”.
Parables become “riddles” and to baptise, to “dip” in water. Salvation becomes “healing” or “completeness” and Heaven becomes “the world beyond time and space.”
