Radio Bible Class and New Ager M. Scott Peck


Radio Bible Class Ministries was founded by Dr. M. R. De Haan in the 1930s. Today, his grandson Mart De Haan presides over the ministry. Their signature publication, the daily devotional called Our Daily Bread, is translated into nearly 30 languages.

In February of 2007, Lighthouse Trails reported that RBC was being influenced by contemplative authors. The report stated:

Radio Bible Class was founded by the respected Dr. De Haan in 1938. On the RBC website it states: "His commitment to ministry was to lead people of all nations to personal faith and maturity in Christ." Dr. De Haan faithfully delivered God's Word for nearly thirty years. We believe if he was here today, he would agree with us when we say that Radio Bible Class is erroneously quoting and promoting contemplative authors and in so doing straying away from the goal that Dr. De Haan had ... to maintain biblical purity and present the Word of God in accuracy and truth.

Several instances from RBC will be listed here to show why we are concerned:

June 6, 2006 - Henri Nouwen
July 13, 2005 - Henri Nouwen
2002 - The Lord is My Shepherd - Henri Nouwen (p. 21)
April 2, 2002 - Brother Lawrence
January 25, 2007 - Brennan Manning
September 15, 2005 - Brennan Manning
2003 When Fear Seems Overwhelming (p. 32) - Richard Foster, Brennan Manning, Gary Thomas, Larry Crabb, Dan Allender (emerging leader), Daniel Goleman (New Age mystic)
December 15, 2005 - Larry Crabb (numerous other references to Larry Crabb in other issues)

We have contacted RBC in the past but have never heard back from anyone. Today, we have sent another email stating:

We have noticed that you are making numerous references to contemplative authors like Henri Nouwen, Richard Foster and Brennan Manning. Because we have serious concerns about the spirituality they teach, we hope you will reevaluate your use of these authors. May we send you a complimentary book we publish that clearly, and in a graceful attitude, shows the documentation regarding this? Thank you for your time.

We hope that Dr. De Haan's grandson, Mart De Haan (who now runs RBC) will look at all the facts about contemplative spirituality before referencing contemplative teachers in the future and will remove those references that are already there.

Now, nearly a year later, we must report that RBC is not only turning to contemplatives for wisdom but New Agers as well. In their Discovery Series, they offer a booklet titled "What in the World is Satan Doing?" An introduction in the booklet explains:

Dan Vander Lugt, RBC biblical counselor, has written this booklet to correct some current misconceptions about Satan. It is our prayer that it will help you to be both forewarned and forearmed against an evil empire organized not only to rule the world but to take the place of Christ in your heart.

Unfortunately, Vander Lugt favorably references the late New Age proponent M. Scott Peck throughout the booklet. In the first quote (p. 2), Vander Lugt says that Peck had been led toward the Christian faith through his "grappling with the reality of evil." Later quoting Peck from his book People of the Lie, Vander Lugt refers to Peck's discussion on self-deception and self-exposure. It is ironic, as will show later in this report, that Vander Lugt suggests that people with these two attributes can end up practicing mysticism.

Vander Lugt says that "recent" books by Peck are "valuable in counteracting unbiblical skepticism ... concerning the reality of Satan" (p. 25) and that Peck's work "sounds serious warning to Christians."

For RBC to quote M. Scott Peck in the context of Christian understanding is alarming. Some would say that M. Scott Peck was once a New Ager but later became a Christian. Others would contest this, based on a steady history by Peck that proves contrary. Mike Oppenheimer, in his excellent report "Spiritual Fusion - East Comes West," explains:

The late M. Scott Peck who is popularly read by Christians said, 'While I continue to make use of what I have learned from Buddhism, there are aspects of Buddhism [like reincarnation] that I am agnostic about. That means I don't disbelieve it and I don't believe it; I just don't know. On the other hand, I find distasteful the traditional idea of Christianity which preaches the resurrection of the body' (Further Along the Road Less Traveled, pp. 168-169).1

This book by Peck was written after his book People of the Lie (1983). And People of the Lie was written by Peck just five years after his extremely popular book (still today) titled The Road Less Traveled was released. Research analyst, Ray Yungen, discusses that book:

The late psychologist M. Scott Peck wrote a phenomenal best seller on psychology and spiritual growth titled The Road Less Traveled. The book contains insights and suggestions for dealing with life's problems, which is why it has generated the interest it has. But the book also incorporates the central theme of the Ancient Wisdom:

God wants us to become himself (or Herself or Itself). We are growing toward godhood. God is the goal of evolution. It is God who is the source of the evolutionary force and God who is the destination. This is what we mean when we say that He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end....

It is one thing to believe in a nice old God who will take good care of us from a lofty position of power which we ourselves could never begin to attain. It is quite another to believe in a God who has it in mind for us precisely that we should attain His position, His power, His wisdom, His identity.

[Occultists] Madame Blavatsky and Alice Bailey could not have said it any better. Peck revealed where he was coming from when he said, "But (The Road) is a sound New Age book, not a flaky one." This book, which was on the New York Times best seller list for over 400 weeks, has been incredibly popular in Christian circles for years.(from For Many Shall Come in My Name, 2nd ed. pp.125-126)

We find it extremely ironic that RBC would rely so heavily on M. Scott Peck throughout their booklet "What in the World is Satan Doing?" Furthermore, the question must be asked, why does RBC continue to find wisdom from contemplatives like Richard Foster, Henri Nouwen, and Larry Crabb (who incidentally is also in the RBC booklet)? Perhaps only Mart De Haan and the present day staff at RBC can really answer that question. But it is a question that should not be ignored.

Incredibly, in the RBC booklet, Vander Lugt actually warns against New Age mysticism. M. Scott Peck, who said in Further Along the Road Less Traveled that he was "proud to be listed as an Aquarian Conspirator" (i.e., New Ager - said this considerably after he supposedly became a Christian) also said in an interview with New Age Journal (12/85), "that The Road Less Traveled was dropped on him from God, and that there are 'an enormous number of people who have a passion for God, but who are fed up to the gills with fundamentalism.' The interview also divulged that Peck moved from 'Eastern mystical religions toward Christian mysticism [contemplative prayer].' (ATOD, p. 56)" And this is our very concern, that Christian mysticism has the same source and foundation as Eastern mysticism; that's why Peck could move so smoothly from one to the other. And that is exactly why RBC should not be turning to mystics for spiritual wisdom and guidance.

Other Quotes by M. Scott Peck:

"I have said that the ultimate goal of spiritual growth is for the individual to become as one with God ... It is for the individual to become totally, wholly God." The Road Less Traveled

"Zen Buddhism should be taught in every 5th grade class in America." (Further Along the Road Less Traveled)

"Christianity's greatest sin is to think that other religions are not saved." (Further Along the Road Less Traveled)

"If the New Age can reform society rather than just adversely challenge it then it can be extremely holy and desperately needed." Further Along the Road Less Traveled (written after The People of the Lie)

"Since the unconscious is God all along, we may further define the goal of spiritual growth to be the attainment of godhood by the conscious self." (The Road Less Traveled)

M. Scott Peck - New Age Thinker (1936-2005)

In 2008, Oprah's Plan to Bring the New Age to Millions of Women

Starting January 1st 2008, New Age advocate Marianne Williamson began a year long course on Oprah & Friends radio, teaching the New Age "bible" A Course in Miracles. Former New Age follower Warren Smith explains the origins of A Course in Miracles:

In 1965 Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology, Helen Schucman, heard an "inner voice" saying, "This is a course in miracles. Please take notes." Schucman's initial resistance was overcome when the "inner voice," identifying itself as "Jesus," told her the purpose of the Course [i.e., A Course in Miracles, ed.]: The world situation is worsening to an alarming degree. People all over the world are being called on to help, and are making their individual contributions as part of an overall prearranged plan. Part of the plan is taking down A Course in Miracles, and I am fulfilling my part in the agreement, as you will fulfill yours. You will be using abilities you developed long ago, and which you are not really ready to use again. Because of the acute emergency, however, the usual slow, evolutionary process is being by-passed in what might best be described as a "celestial speed-up." (Reinventing Jesus Christ, p. 8)

For over seven years, Schucman took this dictation from her unseen spirit guide, which resulted in A Course of Miracles. Years later in 1992, when Marianne Williamson wrote about the Course in her own book, A Return to Love, Oprah became an evangelist for Williamson's work, turning the Course and Williamson into nearly an overnight success. Now, in 2008, Williamson will present the Course to millions of women every day of the year via Oprah's radio program (also online). And while most of these unsuspecting women will be thinking they are getting encouraging, uplifting spiritual teachings from "Jesus," in reality they will be given hearty doses of blatant New Ageism (i.e., occultism).

The message in the Course, says Smith, is love:

[L]ove is all there is. And because God is love, God is therefore in everyone and everything. Because God is sinless, perfect, and "at one" with all creation, then we, as a part of God, are also sinless and perfect in our "oneness" with Him. Man's only "sin" is in not remembering his own perfect, sinless, divine nature. The only "devil" is our illusion that we are separate from, and not a part of, God. (RJC, p. 9)

Before Christian women are too quick to embrace Williamson's talk of God and love, it would be a good idea to grasp an understanding of this Course in Miracle "God." Listen to a few quotes from A Course in Miracles describing God and Jesus:

There is no separation between God and His creation.(Text, p. 147)

God is All in all in a very literal sense. All being is in Him Who is all Being. You are therefore in Him since your being is His. (Text, p. 119)

Is he [Jesus] the Christ? O yes, along with you. His little life on earth was not enough to teach the mighty lesson that he learned for all of you. (Manual, p. 87)

The Name of Jesus Christ as such is but a symbol.... It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray. (Manual, p. 58)

Christ is God's Son as He created Him. He is the Self we share, uniting us with one another, and with God as well. (Workbook, p. 431)

For Christ takes many forms with different names until their oneness can be recognized.(Manual, p. 88) (quotes courtesy Reinventing Jesus Christ)

The following will show that Marianne Williamson's summation of God and Christ is not any different:

Even if he takes another name, even if he takes another face, He is in essence the truth of who we are. Our joined lives form the mystical body of Christ. (A Return to Love, p. 296)

Jesus and other enlightened masters are our evolutionary elder brothers. (p. 42)

The concept of a divine, or "Christ" mind, is the idea that, at our core, we are not just identical, but actually the same being. "There is only one begotten Son" doesn't mean that someone else was it, and we're not. It means we're all it. There's only one of us here. (p.30-31)

You and I have the Christmind in us as much as Jesus does. (p. 42)

Mike Oppenheimer (Let Us Reason ministries) says that the primary reason for the Course is the "Correcting of the errors of Christianity.... To foster spiritual development through the study and practice of A Course In Miracles, teach the Course's reinterpretation of traditional Christian principles such as sin, suffering, forgiveness, Atonement, and the meaning of the Crucifixion..." 1

In essence, the Course has the same objective that we are seeing through the emerging church today ... to redefine what Christianity is. While Oprah will introduce millions of women (many of them professing Christians) to a new kind of Jesus with a new definition of atonement, sin, and forgiveness, the emerging church leaders along with the contemplative promoting leaders are introducing millions of Christians to a new kind of Jesus with a new definition of atonement, sin, and forgiveness. But keep in mind, both are going in the same direction ... and that is further and further away from the Jesus Christ of the Bible who says:

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door [Jesus Christ] into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. (John 10:1)

Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.(John 10:7-11)

I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)

Some people may think that New Agers like Williamson are harmless kooks and will have no lasting effect on society. But as Ray Yungen points out, nothing could be further from the truth.

One former New Ager explains Williamson's interest in the political field:

Over the past decade, Williamson has continued to champion A Course in Miracles in the media and in her public appearances around the country. A more recent book, Healing the Soul of America, has enabled Williamson and the Course to make a subtle transition into the political arena. Hoping to inspire a "new gospel" approach to national and world problems, Williamson, along with best selling Conversations with God author Neale Donald Walsch, cofounded The Global Renaissance Alliance (RJC, Smith)

When we comprehend Williamson's propensity towards the New Age and meditation (as a vehicle for world peace), it is astounding to know that Williamson is working closely with Walter Cronkite, a former CBS news anchor and public icon, once referred to as "the most trusted man in America." Williamson and Cronkite, along with Congressman Dennis Kucinich, are trying to convince the US government to start a cabinet-level Department of Peace within the executive branch via House bill HR808. The fact that someone as mainstream as Walter Cronkite would align himself with the openly metaphysical Williamson bespeaks of the current spiritual climate of our society. Incidentally, the campaign to start the Department of Peace is gaining momentum and currently has the support of over 60 U.S. Representatives and Senators and has local grassroot chapters in over 200 congressional districts.

Williamson embodies, as few others do, the marriage between political/social idealism and the embracing of metaphysical perception [New Age]. As the tone of modern spirituality changes so will the various institutions that comprise society. The Western world is encountering the Aquarian dimension as a dynamic reality. (For Many Shall Come in My Name, 2nd ed., p. 57

The Denver Post - Richard Foster:  "The pioneer among Protestants"

A Denver Post article "Filling spiritual voids, not just pews" is subtitled "Richard Foster's treatise on disciplined faith turns 30," speaking of Foster's now 30-year-old Celebration of Discipline. Howard Baker, a professor at Denver Seminary says: "He's definitely the pioneer among Protestants." Foster's book has now sold 2.5 million copies, with over half of those sold just in the last 12 years since Rick Warren gave credence to Foster in his own book, The Purpose Driven Church, recognizing Foster as a key player in the spiritual formation movement. Warren said the movement was vital and needed for the body of Christ and would bring the church to full maturity.

Rick Warren isn't the only one who has recognized Foster as a pioneer in the Christian church today. Others have heralded him as well. The Denver Post article points out that Celebration of Discipline was "named by Christianity Today magazine as one the top 10 religious books of the 20th century." Donald Whitney, professor at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, acknowledges Foster's tremendous influence when he says: "Perhaps the most influential book on spirituality in the twentieth century is Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline.1

While Whitney does reject Foster's mystical propensities, there are virtually no Christian leaders who are issuing stern warnings about the teachings of Richard Foster and the detrimental affect his writings have had on the Christian church. Even those like Whitney, who seem to see Foster's mysticism as a negative, still recognize Foster as an overall positive influence. However, such a mindset has paved the way for Foster's spiritual formation to become an integral part of Christianity today, and perhaps one of the main reasons that contemplative spirituality has taken hold to some degree in nearly every denomination.

Lighthouse Trails has thoroughly analyzed and critiqued Foster's teachings in our published work by Ray Yungen, A Time of Departing , as well as in many well-documented articles. such as our most recent one Celebration of Discipline - 30 Years of Influence!.

To capsulate, Richard Foster believes that anyone can practice the spiritual disciplines, including the discipline of going into the silence, and become more like Christ. Foster, who emulates the late panentheist monk, Thomas Merton, would agree with Merton who believed that divinity resides in every human being. That is why Foster did not hesitate to include panentheist Thomas Kelly in his book, Streams of Living Water. Foster quoted Kelly as saying "Deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continuously return" (A Testament of Devotion, p. 29). It is in that same book, Kelly says that "[i]n that abiding yet energizing Center we are all [all human beings] made one" (p.38).

It is this belief that all is one and that this oneness can be realized through meditation that makes Foster's spirituality so dangerous and contrary to biblical Christianity. In Streams of Living Water, Foster talks about "a vision of an all-inclusive people." This vision would fit Henri Nouwen's calling who said: "Today I personally believe that while Jesus came to open the door to God's house, all human beings can walk through that door, whether they know about Jesus or not. Today I see it as my call to help every person claim his or her own way to God."(From Sabbatical Journey, Henri Nouwen's last book, page 51, 1998 Hardcover Edition)

No one can argue that Celebration of Discipline and Richard Foster have had a tremendous influence in Christian spirituality today. But what must come to the table of discussion in Christian circles is is this influence for the better or for the worse?

"Emerging Church Had a Good Year"

LTRP NOTE: Because of the dangerous and anti-biblical beliefs of the emerging church, the following article by an out-of-house news source should further prompt believers to continue their defense of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and their warning to those they know about this movement. With Rick Warren, Willow Creek, and many other Christian leaders promoting and evangelizing for the emerging church, it is no wonder the headlines read "Emerging church had good year." If you have not read Faith Undone, a compelling and accurate expose' of the emerging church, we encourage you to do so.

"Emerging Church Had Good Year"
by Leo Sandon
Tallahassee Democrat

"During the past year, buzz about the Emerging Church Movement became louder. This 21st-century alternative Protestantism is intriguing, somewhat puzzling and difficult to define....

"The Emerging Church Movement is alive and well and has had a productive year. It has published blogs and books, held 'conversations' throughout the country, been the subject of both academic and ecclesiastical seminars, and been the object of media inquiries and symposiums.

"It certainly has many leaders in evangelical and mainline groups thinking." Click here to read this entire news story.

2008 National Pastors Convention Could Send Many Pastors in Mystical Direction

Pastors and church leaders who are planning on attending the 2008 National Pastors Convention, which will be presented by Zondervan Publishing and InterVarsity Press this coming February, should think twice about going. After travel expenses, ticket, lodging and food, the cost for the event for one pastor could easily run over a thousand dollars. In light of the speakers who will be teaching, and other events being offered, this may prove to be an unfruitful way to spend so much money, and may even be spiritually detrimental.

Speakers at this year's event include some of the most blatant proponents of contemplative spirituality and the emerging church, which in many cases also means having a propensity toward Catholic mysticism and interspirituality. Some of these speakers include: Ruth Haley Barton, Tony Jones, Erwin McManus, John Ortberg, J.P. Moreland, Calvin Miller, Scot McKnight, and Dan Kimball. Chuck Colson, co-author of the ecumenical Evangelicals & Catholics Together document will also be speaking. Emerging church favorite Phyllis Tickle (who once called Brian McLaren the next Luther) will be a speaker at the event as well. 1 A number of other speakers also fall into the contemplative/emerging camp.

Extra activities offered at the convention, in addition to seminars by the speakers, include "Christian Yoga" presented by Shelly Pagitt (wife of emerging church leader Doug Pagitt), New Age sympathizer Rob Bell's Nooma films, opportunities to be instructed by "spiritual directors" (those who teach contemplative spirituality), and prayer Labyrinths.

Critical concern courses will offer "Practicing the Presence of Jesus: A Spiritual Retreat" by Mark Yaconelli, who once revealed to Lighthouse Trails that he taught mantra meditation in his classes. Popular teachers Henry Cloud and John Townsend (CCN) have found a teaching place at the convention too in a critical concerns course called "Revolutionizing Group Life in the Church." Having these two mainstream speakers will give much credibility to the event in the eyes of many. Dan Kimball will teach a course named after his book They Like Jesus but not the Church (see review).

To help prepare pastors and leaders for the convention, an over-night, pre-event pastors retreat will take place at the Mission San Luis Rey retreat center. A description of the retreat explains:

This National Pastors Retreat provides leaders with a safe place to be honest about the challenges of spiritual leadership, to experience spiritual rhythms of solitude, prayer, and community, and to deepen their understanding of leadership that flows from one's authentic self [not Jesus Christ]. Led by The Transforming Center leaders Ruth Haley Barton and Joe Sherman, this retreat offers a meaningful introduction to the community, spiritual rhythms, teaching themes, and guided experiences that will come to characterize National Pastors Retreat.

Ruth Haley Barton, who helped to create the spiritual formation curriculum (with John Ortberg) for Willow Creek church teaches the fundamentals of contemplative spirituality to thousands of pastors and leaders at her Transforming Center. Something that is vital to understand is that Barton was trained at the Shalem Prayer Institute. This center was founded by Tilden Edwards who boldly proclaimed that Christians who exclude eastern spiritual practices from their prayer life impoverish their spiritual resources (Living in the Presence, p. 18-19).

Zondervan's National Pastors Convention is wrongly titled. Its present name gives the impression that this is a Christian event. However, it is anything but that, and it will mislead many unsuspecting Christian pastors and leaders. Unfortunately, by the time they've each spent hundreds of dollars for the event and are packed and ready to go there, most of them will not have read this article and may become caught in the web of deception that is woven throughout the contemplative prayer movement and the emerging church and for which Zondervan and InterVarsity Press have become evangelists.


Muslims Accept Pope's Invitation to Dialogue

Ethics Daily

VATICAN CITY (RNS) A group of prominent Muslim scholars and clerics has accepted the invitation of Pope Benedict XVI for a "working meeting" on inter-religious dialogue at the Vatican.

According to Catholic News Service, Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad bin Talal of Jordan wrote to Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican secretary of state, on Dec. 12 to accept the pope's invitation.

Representatives of Muslim participants at the meeting will travel to the Vatican in February or March to prepare for the event, Ghazi wrote.

The Vatican's proposal was itself a response to an open letter published Oct. 13 by 138 Muslim leaders seeking better relations with the Christian world.

Book on the Emerging Church Issues Warning Around the World

After just five months since its release date, Faith Undone has traveled around the world and now has 20,000 copies in print, with nearly 16,000 either sold or given away. The book makes a well-documented and serious case against the emerging church movement, showing that it is far more than the discontent grumblings of young people looking for answers but is in fact a calculated device by the devil to undermine the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. Grounded in a centuries old mystical approach, this movement is powerful yet highly deceptive. The path that the emerging church is taking is leading right into the arms of an interfaith perspective that has prophetically profound ramifications. Behind this new kind of church is a well-designed strategy and maneuver by the prince of this world to literally take apart the faith of millions.
