Coming From the Lighthouse
Our newest release, Faith
Undone, has finally gone
to press. This book addresses the framework
and the agenda of emerging spirituality.
We believe that the contemplative prayer/emerging church
movement is quickly overtaking much of
mainstream Christianity. Please inform
your loved ones so when it comes to their
churches and school's, they will recognize
it for what it really is. God bless you
as you contend for the faith.
Velvet Elvis - A Doorway to the New Age
Is Velvet Elvis, the popular book by emerging pastor,
Rob Bell, being recommended by your teen's
Christian school? In Rabun-Gap, Georgia
at the Rabun-Gap Nacoochee School, the
answer to that is yes. A Book List for 9th through 12th graders includes Bell's Velvet Elvis. Rabun-Gap Nacoochee
School is a Presbyteran-based private
At Bellevue Christian School in Clyde
Hill, Washington superintendent, Ron Taylor,
says this of Bell's book: "Velvet
Elvis is a great book that will stimulate
much conversation among your friends and
family. It certainly has in my household."1
Greater Atlanta Christian School (also
in Georgia) has Velvet Elvis on
a Bible Department Summer Reading List.
The list is not optional. A notice states:
"Please note that all books
are required for all students.2
The list of Christian schools, which are
requiring students to read Velvet Elvis, could go on and on. And some may ask,
"What's so bad about that? It seems
like a harmless book." But is it?
We at Lighthouse Trails believe Velvet
Elvis and Bell's Noomas are a trojan
horse that will deliver to young unsuspecting
kids from Christian homes a hearty helping
of the New Age (i.e., mysticism and panentheism).
And if they are introduced to the New
Age under the guise of Christian literature,
many of them will be seduced by "doctrines
Strong statement? Yes, but well justified
(and documented). Listen as Roger Oakland
explains (from (Faith Undone):
In Bell's Velvet Elvis,
in the "Endnotes" section, Bell
recommends Ken Wilber ... Of Wilber, Bell states:
For a mind-blowing introduction
to emergence theory and divine creativity
[meaning we are co-creators with God],
set aside three months and read Ken Wilber's A Brief History of Everything.
Ken Wilber was raised in a
conservative Christian church, but at
some point he left that faith and is now
a major proponent of Buddhist mysticism.
His book that Bell recommends, A Brief
History of Everything, is published
by Shambhala Publications, named after
the term, which in Buddhism means the
mystical abode of spirit beings. Wilber
is one of the most respected and highly
regarded theoreticians in the New Age
Wilber is perhaps best known for what
he calls integral theory. On his website,
he has a chart called the Integral Life
Practice Matrix, which lists several activities
one can practice "to authentically
exercise all aspects or dimensions of
your own being-in-the-world." Here
are a few of these spiritual activities
that Wilber promotes: yoga, Zen, centering
prayer, kabbalah (Jewish mysticism), TM,
tantra (Hindu-based sexuality), and kundalini
yoga. There are others of this nature,
as well. A Brief History of Everything discusses these practices (in a favorable
light) as well.
For Rob Bell to say that Wilber's book
is "mind-blowing" and readers
[of whom many will be teen-agers] should
spend three months in it leaves no room
for doubt regarding Rob Bell's spiritual
sympathies. What is alarming is that so
many Christian venues, such as Christian
junior high and high schools, are using Velvet Elvis. (Faith Undone, pp. 109-110)
In light of Rob Bell's attraction
to the mystical (see our report, "Will the Next Billy Graham Be a Mystic?"),
and his obvious admiration for a New Ager
like Ken Wilber, handing teenagers a copy
of Velvet Elvis for summer reading
could have disastrous effects.
Ken Wilber isn't the only one with New
Age spirituality that Bell resonates with.
In Velvet Elvis, Bell recommends
a university professor named Marcus Borg.
If you aren't familiar with Borg's belief's,
you may find them rather disturbing. Again
from Faith Undone:
Borg explains in his book The God We Never Knew that his
views on God, the Bible, and Christianity
were transformed while he was in seminary:
I let go of the notion that
the Bible is a divine product. I learned
that it is a human cultural product, the
product of two ancient communities, biblical
Israel and early Christianity. As such,
it contained their understandings and
affirmations, not statements coming directly
or somewhat directly from God.... I realized
that whatever "divine revelation"
and the "inspiration of the Bible"
meant (if they meant anything), they did
not mean that the Bible was a divine product
with divine authority.
This attitude would certainly
explain how Borg could say:
Jesus almost certainly was
not born of a virgin, did not think of
himself as the Son of God, and did not
see his purpose as dying for the sins
of the world.20
If what Borg is saying is
true, then we would have to throw out
John 3:16 which says God so loved the
world He gave His only Son, and we would
have to dismiss the theme of a blood offering
that is prevalent throughout all of Scripture.
(Faith Undone, pp. 196-197)
What does Rob Bell
have to say about Borg in Velvet Elvis?
It's favorable. On page 180 and 184, he
praises Borg's book, The Heart of Christianity.
Bell also makes reference to Borg's panentheist
views (p. 19).
As emerging spirituality is sweeping into
Christianity at an alarming rate through
many avenues, perhaps the biggest victims
will be our kids. Let's not allow that
Ministries Say OK to Contemplative J.P.
J. P. Moreland is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy
at Talbot (Biola) School of Theology.
He has written numerous books and has
spoken at over 200 colleges. He has many
academic credentials and honors such as:
Outstanding Young Men of America, 1981
and Senior Class Professor of the Year,
Biola University, 1992-93. But Moreland
has another credential that is not being
discussed in evangelical circles - he
promotes contemplative spirituality.
Last year, in an article titled "Focus on the Family Continues
its Dive into Contemplative," Moreland
was discussed. On the FOF website, he
wrote a four-part article titled "How
Spiritual Disciplines Work." (1) Part III of Moreland's article is called Solitude and
Silence as Spiritual Disciplines. Moreland
writes a disclaimer for the article stating:
As we dive into the disciplines
of solitude and silence, I need to make
a very important qualification. While
some of the things in this article may,
at first, sound like something you'd hear
from a New Age guru, these ideas are,
in fact, based on Scriptural principles
Moreland is concerned that
his instructions may sound New Age or
Eastern. We have noticed that usually
when something sounds New Age or
Eastern, that's because it is. There is
no instance in the Bible where Jesus or
the apostle Paul made such a disclaimer,
nor did they ever sound that way.
In Part II of Moreland's article he says,
"A spiritual discipline is a repetitive
practice." Moreland favorably references
contemplative-promoter Dallas Willard
to describe the importance of silence
and solitude. He adds: "People are
coming to see that repeated bodily practice
in the form of spiritual exercises/disciplines
is at the heart of spiritual transformation
" (Part II). Moreland says, "Catholic
retreat centers are usually ideal for
solitude retreats," which are bastions
for contemplative spirituality.
In Faith Undone, Roger Oakland
addresses Moreland's instructions on repetitive
prayer. Oakland quotes Moreland from his
book The Lost Virtue of Happiness where
Moreland tells readers to say the "Jesus
Prayer" three hundred times a day.
His new release, Kingdom Triangle,
should be viewed with caution. Dallas
Willard wrote the foreword, and in an
Amazon book review, the reviewer states:
On page 159, Dr. Moreland
encourages the reader to participate in
an unbiblical form of meditation which
is more akin to the religious practices
of Yoga and Eastern mysticism than orthodox
Biblical Christianity where he details
a 2-step process first alluded to in the Lost Virtue of Happiness book.
In step one, he tells the reader to "[f]ocus
the center of your attention on your physical
Moreland recommends Richard
Foster and Henri Nouwen, which makes sense
- he co-authored a book with Dallas Willard
ten years ago; thus, he has been dancing
in contemplative circles for sometime.
While it is quite obvious that Moreland
is a promoter of contemplative prayer,
what isn't so clear is how Christian ministries
are viewing Moreland as a trustworthy
source. For instance, in the recent Summit
Ministries (Dr. David Noebel) student
conference, Moreland was a featured speaker.
(3) And in an apologetics book on the emerging church, Reclaiming the Center, Moreland
was a contributing writer. That book is
being recommended by Christian colleges,
even ones that have in the past said no
to contemplative, such as Corban College
in Salem, Oregon. (4)
Our concern is that contemplative spirituality
will further seep into Christianity through
the acceptance of Moreland's spiritual
disciplines. The fact that he has spoken
at over 200 colleges, shows that his audience
is largely the younger generation. Corban
College's promotion of his book as well
as Summit's student conference are points
in fact. Once again, Satan is going after
the minds of the youth. But it is tragic
when it happens through respected ministries.
We pray and hope that Summit Ministries
and Corban College will make clear statements
to their students that Moreland's repetitive
prayer instructions are unbiblical and
Some people might criticize us for coming
on so strong against good organization
like Summit and Corban. But we are compelled
to do so. What we are concerned about
is that ministries that have not gone
the contemplative way but have been reticent
to strongly stand against it and speak
out against it often have succumbed to
it. If we truly believe that contemplative
spirituality (i.e., mysticism) is the
driving force behind a great falling away,
then boldest is absolutely required, and
to do less could have serious implications.
Note: Lighthouse Trails has listed
Corban College as a Christian college
that does not promote spiritual formation
(contemplative). You may view that list

Pastors Beware - Retreat Network Offers Contemplative Authors
The Pastors Retreat Network, founded in 1997, "offers
five-day retreats to pastors and pastor
couples." On the website, it states:
"Scripture reading and meditation
are at the heart of the experience."
According to the ministry's Recommended Book list, this experience being offered to
pastors and their wives is going to be
mystical and similar to Eastern religion.
Books include those by Richard Foster,
Ruth Haley Barton, Thomas Merton, and
Henri Nouwen, all of whom are/were mantra-meditation
There are a number of Christian websites
that recommend or link to the Pastors
Retreat Network, some of which are Crosswalk.com,
Denver Seminary, the Spiritual Formation Forum, the Center for Church Advancement, Moody Broadcasting Network (a ministry of Moody Bible
Institute), and many, many others.
If your pastor and his wife attend a retreat
by the Pastors Retreat Network, very likely
their spirituality will begin to take
on a whole new mystical approach.
Christian Classics Ethereal Library Promotes
The popular Christian Classics Ethereal Library is promoting
mystic Madame Guyon. The CCEL has been
used as a resource for many Christians.
It is unfortunate that this promotion
is taking place. On the CCEL website,
it states (referring to Madame Guyon):
Jeanne-Marie Bouvier de la Motte-Guyon (commonly known as Madame
Guyon) (April 13, 1648 - June 9, 1717)
was a celebrated French mystical writer
of the Quietist school. This little book
was written for a few individuals who
wanted to love God with their whole hearts,
and as others wanted a copy, it was committed
to the press. It quickly went into multiple
printings. Since then this work has been
widely distributed and very influential
- to places as far as China, where Watchman
Nee gave copies to new converts.
It was Guyon who said: "Here [the contemplative state]
everything is God. God is everywhere and
in all things." The Christian History
Institute said this of Guyon:
"Modern critics say that Jeanne-Marie used self-hypnosis
to achieve her 'spiritual' states and
trances and point out that she used 'automatic
writing' which suggests spiritualist practice.
They wonder that she had so little to
say about Christ (in proportion to the
total number of words she wrote)."

Guyon, please refer to our research site.
Red-letter Christians' a growing political force
LTRP Note: The following is from an outside news source. Please
see our related story, Pentecost 2007 - A Step Closer to Global Unity - A Step Further
from Gospel Truth
Associated Baptist Press
By Hannah Elliott
NEW YORK (ABP) -- In what is shaping
up to be a faith-filled race for the
presidency, Republican and Democratic
candidates have pulled out all the stops
-- hiring religion gurus, conscientiously
attending church, discussing the intimate
details of their prayer lives on national
TV and publicly admitting personal struggles
I's an effort to appeal to religious
voters and -- especially for Democratic
candidates --- dispel a perception that
they don't take religion seriously.
The latest effort came at a George Washington
University forum sponsored by the progressive
Christian group Sojourners.
At the event, Sens. Hillary Clinton
(D-N.Y.), Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and
John Edwards (D-N.C.) spoke at length
about their faith. Some pundits called
it an indication the left has stopped
assuming religious voters automatically
will vote for the Republican Party.
Others claim Democrats are pandering.
But exactly who are the religious voters
they hope to attract? Tony Campolo,
noted author and sociologist, has coined
a term that describes at least part
of the movement: "Red-letter Christians."
These people, named after the red ink
some Bible publishers use to denote
the words of Jesus, hold to traditional
Christian beliefs and believe the Holy
Spirit inspired the Bible, which they
view as authoritative and relevant for
faith and practice. Click here to read more of this news article.

Rick Warren OK With Harry Potter
According to the June 21st issue of Rick Warren's weekly newsletter, the
headline above is accurate. This week's
Ministry Toolbox, which is Warren's way
of communicating with pastors and church
leaders around the world, has a link titled
"Recommended Reading List."
While the list is actually that of contemplative
promoter James Emery White, (a contributor
to Warren's newsletter), it ended up on
Warren's own newsletter as recommended
On the Recommended Book list is the following
description of the upcoming Harry Potter
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling.
Though the seventh and final installment
is yet to be released (July 21, to be
exact), when it does, it will be well-worth
reading. Though some would disagree,
I am one to put Rowling's work in the
camp of fantasy literature, along with
Lewis and Tolkien, with her use of magic
more mechanical than occultic. I found
her earlier six volumes instant classics
of the genre, and the final book will
undoubtedly cement this series as among
the best written.
Clearly, Rick Warren is OK with Harry Potter or this would
not be promoted on his website as well
as in his e-newsletter.
While many people think Harry Potter is
harmless (even many Christians), facts
should not be ignored. Some of those facts
are presented by research analyst Ray
Yungen. He explains what he has discovered
about Harry Potter:
There are probably very few people in the western world who
haven't heard of the Harry Potter book
series phenomenon. Not just millions,
but tens of millions of adults, adolescents,
and children have read these books or
seen the movie versions of them. Going
by the numbers of the books that have
been purchased, few under 25 have not
been influenced to some degree by the
adventures of this boy wizard. And many
ask, what is wrong with that?
The Potter series, though fiction in
the technical sense, does make a very
real connection to the realm of metaphysics
in one spot specifically. In the book
called Harry Potter and the Prisoner
of Azkaban, one of the main characters,
a professor, tells her class that they
will learn divination or see into the
future. It's at this point that the
book departs from the world of make
believe, and enters into the actual
teachings of Wicca (witchcraft). The
teacher informs the students:
Crystal gazing is a particularly refined art... We shall start
by practicing relaxing the conscious
mind and external eyes, ... so as to
clear the Inner Eye and the superconscious.
All one has to do is type in the word "superconscious"
on Google on the Internet and see just
how highly promoted that term is. It
comes up nearly 130,000 times! Keep
in mind, this term is used specifically
within the context of metaphysics, and
is never used in a non-metaphysical
sense. What this means is that any impressionable
young person who reads this term, could
become more open and comfortable with
the mystical realm in real life.
This is what you would be taught if
you attended a real school of witchcraft.
Relaxing the conscious mind is, of course,
meditation, and the Inner Eye is an
occult term used for the Third eye chakra
from which all psychic powers, such
as divination, spring. But the absolute
clincher is the term "superconscious."
If you were to ask any New Age teacher,
guru, or practitioner what the "superconscious"
is, you would get the same answer--it's
the New Age concept of God. In fact, Buckland's Complete Book Of Witchcraft actually uses the term "Superconsciousness"
in reference to what or to whom witches
tune into during meditation.
There is another more subtle, yet perhaps
more far-reaching aspect to the Potter
books. In the series, those people who
are "non-magical" or ordinary
are called "muggles." They
are portrayed as dull, backward, and
lacking in personality. It is inferred
that if you are a "muggle,"
you are living an inferior and unsatisfying
life. Now if there were no such thing
as "muggles" this comparison
would be meaningless. How can you feel
bad about being something that doesn't
exist? But, as I have already shown, The Prisoner of Azkaban presents
real witchcraft. So then, not to have
access to the "superconscious"
makes one a "muggle," (i.e.,
a non-mystic). This means that the spiritual
beliefs of potentially millions of young
people, many of them from conservative
homes too, may be altered if they pick
up this outlook, even subconsciously;
thus the Harry Potter books may
be a highly effective tool in giving
the New Age movement a boost that is
unimaginable. It will implant in the
minds of multitudes that to fail to
embrace mysticism makes you, well, muggle-like.
(from For Many Shall Come in My Name,
2nd ed., pp. 94-95)
The fact that Rick Warren has given the green light this week
to Harry Potter through his recommendation
of James Emery White's reading list could
have disastrous effects on the spiritual
lives of countless people, potentially
400,000 pastors (the number who have done
the Purpose Driven Life program)
and the millions of congregants who sit
under the teachings of these pastors.
Rick Warren's continuous promotion of
the New Age (e.g., emerging spirituality,
contemplative (mysticism), spiritual formation,
ecumenism, etc.) has drawn virtually no
response by most of today's Christian
leaders. Either they have wholeheartedly
supported Rick Warren's teachings or have
perhaps, and just as detrimental, said
nothing at all. This week's uplifting
of Harry Potter is just another Purpose
Driven step away from biblical truth and
a closer view of the occult.
Interestingly, five and a half years ago
in 2001, Rick Warren ran a story on his
website that spoke up against Harry
Potter. That article made a clear statement that Harry Potter
was dangerous for kids because of its
witchcraft element. All we can say to
that is, "You've come along way Rick

The following news story from The New York Times illustrates
how quickly meditation is overtaking our
society. Children are the newest target!
This is not only affecting kids in public
schools - through the contemplative prayer
movement and the emerging church - Christian
schools are heading in this direction
too. A whole generation is being taught
how to enter dangerous demonic realms
through practicing mantra meditation!
If you have a child in either a public
or private school, please contact the
school immediately and find out if
your child is being introduced to any
type of meditation exercise (this includes
lectio divina and breath prayers). Tell
the school you do not want your child
participating in any of these activities.

Media Spotlight Reviews "The Other Side of the River"
defense to the confusing maze of modern
Reviewed by Ralph
This book is a troubling read. It is troubling because of the
indictment it brings against the modern
Body of Christ. Conservative Bible teachers
today are increasingly lamenting the
lack of basic Biblical discernment among
those who profess to love the Word of
God. Kevin Reeves, in this personal,
and passionate narrative, has attempted
to pull back the curtain, and share
with the reader some of the mystical
experiences commonly taught, practiced,
and encouraged by many churches which
at the same time profess to follow Christ
and his Word.
When one begins to read The Other side of the River,
it becomes apparent quite quickly that
this is not just another "I came
out from among them" book. All
too often a disgruntled disciple of
this movement or that, within "Christendom"
breaks free and feels that it is his
calling to write on his experiences.
The result is little more that axe grinding-light
camouflaged as an exposé of the movement.
Used book stores have shelves of these
One is immediately struck by the grace with which Reeves writes.
Although we can sense the hurt, and
frustration experienced by the author,
he goes out of his way to avoid questioning
the motives or intentions of those in
teaching and leadership positions. The
book winds it's way from the entrance
of the Reeves family into the "River"
of these teachings, follows his rise
to leadership, his gradual and growing
convictions as he approached a crossroad
in his relationship with Christ, and
climaxes with his decision to follow
the Lord and His Word....
Modern Christian mysticism is generally considered to have been
birthed (at least here in North America)
through the Latter Rain movement of
the mid 1900's, mainly through the efforts
of men like William Branham and Franklin
Hall. Reeves gives us valuable documentation
as a backdrop to his story, and shows
how little things have changed in spite
of the passage of time. ...
The Other Side of the River is written is such a way that it offers
hope in the form of a ready defense
to the confusing maze of modern mysticism.
It points the reader to our sure foundation
in Christ and his Word, and gives the
reader a working model for clear biblical
discernment by making the argument of
the principle of precedent convincingly.
This hook packs a wealth of information in its 228 pages, is
thoroughly filled with references
to the numerous quotes, and, surprise!
has a very helpful index. I highly
recommend this volume as a valuable
reference resource for anyone wanting
to get balanced documentation on this
