Vallatton boast of 1,500 “new believers” in France. What we don’t know is what these 1,500 souls are “believing.” If it’s Kris Vallotton’s gospel, then they’re still lost.

Vallotton also rejoiced that “many catholic priests” are present. They are not counted among the new converts, which, if they had truly come to genuine repentance and faith in the real Jesus Christ, would have been something over which to rejoice. Vallotton counts them as co-laborers, fellow ministers.

“Soaking”: An Old Unbiblical Game with a New Name

I came across this photo on Beni Johnson’s Facebook page. Beni included the following description with the photo:

“Oh you know just a little soaking with the youth today. Berne, Switzerland conference. That was fun.”

In this article, I will provide a definition of “soaking,” its roots, and how Bethel Redding’s engagement and promotion of the practice serve as yet more evidence that it is not the Holy Spirit at work in this cult.

“Soaking” or “Soaking Prayer” is defined as follows:

“Since the 1990s there has been an increased focus on mysticism within various segments of Christianity. Bordering on the esoteric, these mystical experiences broaden the division between a ‘factual faith’ and a ‘felt faith,’ and threaten to replace sound biblical teaching with emotion-driven response. Soaking prayer is one such mystical activity. It is described as resting in God’s presence…

What Happens When Jesus Becomes Barney

Truth

When I read the Gospels, I see Jesus as the embodiment of truth and love. In other words, to attempt to divorce the two is to make  Jesus into what we want him to be. Obviously, when we read John’s Gospel, Jesus, as the Word become flesh, is full of grace and truth (1:14), and is the source of grace and truth (1:17). In contrast to the woman at the well, who felt geographic location of worship was important, Jesus states that the issue is not whether one should worship God in Moriah or Gerizim, but rather one should worship in spirit and in truth.

Product DetailsOur triune God has given us his law in Scripture.  Specifically, the Ten Commandments are at the heart of God’s law – summarized with the verb “love” (cf. Mt. 22:33-40).  Thomas Watson, thinking about God’s law and the preface to it (I am the LORD your God… [Ex. 20:1-2]), says because it is God’s law, several duties are enjoined upon us:

1) If God spoke all these words, then we must hear all these words.  The words God speaks are too precious to be lost.  As we would have God hear all our words when we pray, so we must hear all his words when he speaks.

2) If God spoke all these words, then we must attend to them with reverence.  Every word of the moral law is an oracle of heaven.  God himself is the preacher, which calls for reverence.

3) If God spoke all these…
