Why do Christians insist that Abuse Victims Return to Egypt?

A Cry For Justice

Right on through Scripture, any desire to return to bondage and slavery is treated as foolish and even sinful.

And the people complained in the hearing of the LORD about their misfortunes, and when the LORD heard it, his anger was kindled, and the fire of the LORD burned among them and consumed some outlying parts of the camp. Then the people cried out to Moses, and Moses prayed to the LORD, and the fire died down. So the name of that place was called Taberah, because the fire of the LORD burned among them. Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving. And the people of Israel also wept again and said, “Oh that we had meat to eat! We remember the fish we ate in Egypt that cost nothing, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic. But now our strength is…

For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it

Possessing the Treasure

by Mike Ratliff

14 You are My friends if you do what I command you. 15 No longer do I call you slaves, for the slave does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I have heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me but I chose you, and appointed you that you would go and bear fruit, and that your fruit would remain, so that whatever you ask of the Father in My name He may give to you. 17 This I command you, that you love one another.
18 “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you…

Bill Johnson and Bethel Church

Truth2Freedom's Blog

Due to the need for continuous reference to this man and his organization, this post is a “one-stop shopping” place for collecting links to articles about Bill Johnson and his staff or other associated persons, as well as the associated “ministry” band “Jesus Culture.”  (“JC” member false teacher Kim Walker-Smith is also Bethel’s “worship leader” and/or “worship pastor.”)   This man and his organization are spiritually dangerous to the body of Christ, and one of the top most aberrational churches in America.  The following links are copied from previous posts, and may not necessarily be in chronological order.  (I will continue to add to this page as I come across more articles.)

Bill Johnson claims that God does not cause illness, and He never chooses not to heal!

New Apostolic Reformation 101

churchwatch central

“Excellent interview!!! It was as if I had been reading every note I had written down in the last 5 years on the subject….yep, 20 years in that movement and I didn’t even know that I was in it…yikes!!!” – Fighting for the Faith listener [Source]

The above comment from Facebook summarised why Chris Rosebrough’s recent interview Holly Pivec (from Spirit of Error), is a must listen to. They both discussed the New Apostolic Reformation, how to identify it, why it is so dangerous and why it has nothing to do with Christianity.

05_Code-Blue_NAR The New Apostolic Reformation cult preach a false Jesus, false gospel and New Age metaphysical teachings and strategies in an attempt to bring heaven to earth.

We will be addressing details in this interview in other articles.

Odds and ends

My Only Comfort

I only just recently heard that Genesis 3:16 is being used to justify domestic abuse. The thinking is: “She was trying to dominate me, so I had to rule over her.” I have a hard time fathoming the Satanic influence of this line of reasoning.

Bad exegesis ALWAYS has bad consequences. Here are some things that I have learned in the last 24 hours:

1. If you are a pastor, you are responsible for what you teach. Quit simply following the experts, dig out your old Hebrew tools, and look at what the words actually say, rather than what an expert says that an expert says. God will hold YOU accountable. Prayerfully exegete your own texts.

2. Pastors, our business is in words. God has entrusted to us the most sacred obligation – the use of words to build his kingdom. It is your duty to learn how words work…

Rick Warren exposes his totalitarian roots? (Part 2: Fascism)

churchwatch central

FASCIST IDEOLOGY DISGUISED AS CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY

We previously put up an article by Pulpit & Pen where they managed to get footage (thanks to Brannon Howse), of Rick Warren talking how the growth of his church was inspired by the philosophies and practices of English Communists.

Rick Warren exposes his totalitarian roots? (Part 1)

Sadly, Rick Warren rejects the notions of Christian leadership, structure and accountability, belittling the office of “pastor” and replacing this with ‘visionary leadership’. Warren essentially invented his own religion with his take on Christian ideas, which is why he is known as a central guru in his Purpose Driven Life (PDL) Movement. In turn, the biggest churches in the world are governed by fascist ideology and methods. These churches are about :

  1. gaining recruits not making disciples of Jesus;
  2. creating recruits that follow the leaders vision not disciples that follow Jesus and his teachings;
  3. producing visionary leaders not pastors to…

Rod Parsley preaches NAR Gospel & prophesies NARmageddon

churchwatch central

NARPOSTLE ROD PARSLEY PREACHES THE NAR GOSPEL

In our attempt to help people understand the New Apostolic Reformation’s false gospel, we came across this sermon from Rod Parsley. In this sermon, he opens by using famous Baptist minister, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, to smuggle his false gospel to his listeners.

The New Apostolic Reformation cult preach a false Jesus, false gospel and New Age metaphysical teachings and strategies in an attempt to bring heaven to earth. The New Apostolic Reformation cult preach a false Jesus, false gospel and New Age metaphysical teachings and strategies in an attempt to bring heaven to earth.

What makes this presentation even more duplicitous is that Parsley attempts to make his gospel look as though it is the right one by teaching on false gospels we should reject. The NAR Apostles, Prophets and Teachers often call their false gospel the ‘Gospel of The Kingdom’, promoting the notion that their gospel is living while promoting the concept that the biblical gospel is dead. They will often lay the claim that their gospel is alive because signs and wonders…
