Lighthouse Trails Now Distributor for Family-Friendly, Gospel-Centered Film: The Adventures of Jake’s Farm
Lighthouse Trails is now distributor for the wholesome Christian film, The Adventures of Jake’s Farm, produced by Broyden Bros. Pictures and On Fire Films. Isaac Broyden, son of Jimmy Broyden who was stunt director for the movie Courageous. directed the film. The Adventures of Jake’s Farm was awarded the Dove Foundation’s Family Seal of Approval for All Ages and is a beautiful film (which kids will love) that has a strong Gospel message. Below you can see the trailer for the movie as well as the article that Lighthouse Trails wrote about the Broyden family in our September 2013 research journal:
“We want to introduce you to a very special family from B.C., Canada—Jimmy Broyden (the dad), Sandi (his wife), and their seven children. Currently, Lighthouse Trails carries two films written, directed, and produced by two members of this family. Jimmy has an amazing testimony, part of which includes growing up in an abusive home then turning to a life of drugs, starting at the age of 11. One day, as a young man, he was challenged by an acquaintance to read the Bible. He met the challenge, and for the first time in his life, he heard about God’s love for man and Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross for his sins. God miraculously delivered Jimmy from his drug addiction, and he committed his life to the Lord.
“Jimmy had become a stuntman for Hollywood when he was in his early twenties. Today, he still does movie stunts, with his most recent film being Sherwood Films’ hit Courageous. He and his wife are Lighthouse Trails readers. One day, we corresponded by e-mail, which led us to learn about Jimmy and Sandi’s oldest daughter Emma (19) and oldest son, Isaac (15), both whom have written and directed Christian films. Emma’s film, Precious, is a short movie about persecution of Christians in the former U.S.S.R. And last year, Isaac completed his first full-length feature film, The Adventures of Jake’s Farm. Lighthouse Trails is carrying both these films for two reasons: one, because of the Gospel message that is in each film, and two, to show our support for this gifted family who understands the times in which we live and are doing something to point others to salvation through Jesus Christ.” (source: September/October Lighthouse Trails Research Journal, 2013)

Is the purpose of the modern meditation movement(s) to desensitize people into believing that “we are all one” and “we are god”? The extent to which these ideas have now entered the evangelical church world is quite alarming. Our research friend Warren B. Smith has just released a new booklet Be Still and Know That You are Not God!—God is Not “in” Everyone and Everything that examines this issue in a simple and concise overview.
For the 20+ years that I’ve known Warren Smith he has been consistently warning about this rising heresy. In fact, in 2007 Herescope ran an excerpt from an updated Internet version of Smith’s 2002 book Reinventing Jesus Christ where he described his meditation experiences while he was in the New Age Movement. He explained how he was supposed to “be still” so that he could then affirm that “I am God.” Click here to continue reading.

DENVER, Co. — The Center for Medical Progress has released a fourth video expose’ on the abortion giant Planned Parenthood, this time showing a local official discussing ways that the organization has sought to avoid trouble with the law and outlining the “specimen” collection process following abortions.
The video features Savita Ginde, medical director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, which performs an estimated 10,000 abortions. According to the Center for Medical Progress, the organization has a contract with Colorado State University to supply “fetal tissue.”
The footage, recorded in April, shows Ginde discussing the harvesting of organs from aborted babies whose mothers have agreed to donate their babies to science, and expressing concern that if “antis” learned of the information it might be seen as illegally “selling fetal parts across states” and they would “really run with it and make it really negative.”
“Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing,” Ginde explains. “If you have someone in a really anti state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.” Click here to continue reading.
While Christian unity is a very important biblical principle, we must ask ourselves: “How diverse can Christian unity become before it becomes too diverse? How far should a Bible-believing Christian go in the process of forgiving others? Is it possible to go too far?”
An article in the Focus on Religion section taken from the Orange County Register may provide the answer to this question. The headline stated: “Church to Ask Indians to Forgive.” Then a statement followed: “On November 1, ‘The New Jamestown Covenant’ was signed in Virginia with the American arm of the Church of England.” The Newport Virginia News reported:
In 1606, King James I granted a charter allowing English businessmen to colonize Virginia and spread “Christianity” among the “savages” who “live in darkness and miserable ignorance.” More than three centuries later, the Episcopal Church — an American outgrowth of the Church of England — will ask American Indians for forgiveness and reconciliation at a noontime ceremony today on Jamestown Island.
Although the Bible teaches reconciliation, the New Jamestown Covenant took reconciliation beyond biblical parameters. Statements included in the five-page document claimed that Episcopalians and Indians would “work together to find new resolutions in social and political challenges and “… start together to protect and nurture our home, the Earth.”  Click here to continue reading.

The Chief Rabbi of Poland honored 50 elderly Christians who saved Jews from the Nazis during World War II. Calling them “heroes” at the event held in what was the infamous Warsaw Ghetto, the Rabbi expressed “our deepest gratitude to these Righteous Gentiles.”
One of the oldest Christian ladies who had saved Jews from the Nazis was 100-years-old. Others present were already in their 80s and 90s. The event was organized by the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous (JFR), a Jewish group currently providing monthly financial assistance to more than 500 aged and needy Christians who have saved Jews from the Holocaust.
“You are our heroes,” said Stanlee Stahl the JFR executive vice president standing before the elderly group who had saved many Jews from certain death. “It is so important to acknowledge the courage and heroism of the righteous, for each of you saved the honor of humanity,” she told attentive crowd.

Item #2: Letter to the Editor: Todd Bentley to speak in Sacramento, CA Aug.5-8
Dear Lighthouse Trails:
I wanted to alert you of Todd Bentley coming to Northern California. He’s speaking Aug.5-8 in Sacramento at the Oasis Christian Mission Center. Here is a link to the conference: http://www.oasissac.net/conferences
The Oasis Christian Mission Center, in Sacramento, on their “About Us” page (see link: http://www.oasissac.net/about), says they are a “REVIVAL CENTER”, and that they are “connected with Bethel Church in Redding, CA.”
Lighthouse Trails has warned about Todd Bentley and his unbiblical “Lakeland revival” which supposedly started in Lakeland, FL in 2008. Bethel’s Bill Johnson and NAR Apostle and Leader C. Peter Wagner have also endorsed him.
Also, with this push by Sacramento pastors (including Jesus Culture’s leader Banning Liebscher) in recent years to create this false ecumenical “unity” or “ONE-ness” (See link–http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?p=17510), it seems Northern California is attracting the big-named hyper-charismatics in hopes of bringing about this so-called last days “revival”… with Bethel Church being a major hub in networking with other churches in trying to bring about this “revival”/”Third Great Awakening” that is supposedly to start in California and spread throughout the U.S. In Christ, CONCERNED IN CALIFORNIA
