To Lighthouse Trails:
Years ago when researching church-related websites, I used to be able to detect quickly whether they were linked to the apostasy network or not due to some association.
That eliminated a lot of churches from my list of places to check out. Well, just recently I noticed across the board that for the most part they all seemed to have cleaned up their act and covered their tracks pretty well. But, the apostasy is still in full swing and growing; all you need to do is look at what lurks beneath the surface. There was a post recently on Lighthouse Trails about how you had to be at a conference (with Chan) and then you heard what they said with Catholic mystics, but it wasn’t on the website. That is what I have been noticing too. Anyway, many churches that advertise to be so “biblical” and such are just as bad. I live in San Diego, and there are a lot of churches to check into.
It used to be on a church website somehow—some slide, or announcement, etc.—but then later it was hidden in the links, or the church bulletin, or the women’s ministry where a Beth Moore book was listed. Now in the bulletin, when it is a Beth Moore book, they only label the study with a title or theme name. But when I Google that name, I get a book title by Beth Moore. They are hiding it deliberately. Another place I see things is on a church’s Facebook page. The latest example was a church claiming to be “oh so biblical” like that, and sure enough, they advertised the women’s retreat; I looked up the link from the bulletin (the name of it), and there wasn’t too much there. I went to the Facebook page and ta-da! All this New Agey, contemplativey, all about “you, yourself, and you” stuff, and several “any- gal-USA” ladies in cutsie getups. Well, I scrolled down past some other obviously erroneous quotes…. till I get to… a quote by…. Pope Francis! It was like Woah!!!!!! There it was, like nothing, just another cream puff sitting there in a line up of cotton-candy quotes. The next rung in the bridge to that one-world religion has been laid. It’s one of those “do goody” quotes that make the gullible swoon.
In case you are interested… the site is: www.belongtour.com [LTRP note: One of the speakers for the Belong Tour is Jen Hatmaker, one of the IF movement speakers. You can read about that movement and Hatmaker here in an article by Cedric Fisher. IF is a very emergent group that is targeting young Christian women.]
I try to warn as many as I can just in case some will listen.
God bless, L. _______
