Letter to the Editor: Followers of Jesus Calling—All About Them, Not About God

To Lighthouse Trails:

My sister-in-law is deceived by Jesus Calling. They are now on a mission/vacation trip to Kenya. They have supported a young girl for years and are going to meet her on this trip. I communicated to her our prayers for their safety.

I knew she had been deeply steeped in Jesus Calling, and she sent me a copy years ago enclosing a note of how it had changed her life. My husband, in turn, sent her a copy of Warren Smith’s book, Another Jesus Calling, but I have concluded she did not read it. Her response to me regarding her upcoming trip was, they were going on an adventure and God had a surprise for them and they were so excited to find out what the surprise was and looked forward to sharing with family and friends this great surprise they had yet to encounter.

Sadly, she cannot see that this response was all about her. Her adventure, her surprise from God waiting for her in Kenya. Everything she wrote had Jesus Calling influence and rhetoric straight from the book, Jesus Calling. It is about feeling good about yourself and God serving you and not you serving God. Sad so many can’t see. If she realized what the message relayed, I am sure she would not have written it, but they are blind and cannot see.

This deception is very dangerous, and I feel the longer one stays in the deception, the less likely he or she will be able to come out of it because it pulls one deeper into the occult. We are His ambassadors, not the other way around.

May God reveal the deception so they can see they are being guided by a counterfeit “Jesus” that Satan has devised for their destruction.

1 Corinthians 10:21: Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

“Mothers” and “Fathers” Not Essential to Parenting? So Say Liberal Lawmakers

“Left Claims Women Are Essential To Business But Optional To Families”

In 2020, Washington state insists the female perspective is critical to corporations. But in 2018, it insisted the female perspective was optional for children.

By Katy Faust
The Federalist

Washington state Democrats continue to run the table with their majority. They opened the new year with several egregious legislative initiatives, from decriminalizing underage prostitution to pushing the comprehensive sexual education program soundly rejected by a majority of Washington state parents late last year. Also up on the overreaching docket is SB 6037, which would require every public company to have a “gender-diverse board of directors.”

It would appear the Senate Democrats believe representation of both sexes is of great importance. Unfortunately, their concern regarding sex differences is limited only to the world of business because they spent 2018 scrubbing the words “mother” and “father” from the world of family. The passage of the Uniform Parentage Act in 2018, coincidentally also numbered SB 6037, supported by every Senate Democrat, made one’s sex in parenthood officially optional.

Update on Warren B. Smith
Warren Smith

In 2004, the editors at Lighthouse Trails came into contact with former New Age follower Warren B. Smith after reading his book, Deceived on Purpose (which had been released that year). We had been so affected by the book that we placed a notice about it on our website. A few days later, after seeing the notice, Warren called our office to introduce himself. Our editors have been working together with Warren ever since.

As many of our readers know, 2016 and 2017 were very difficult years for Warren and his wife Joy. In addition to losing three close co-workers in ministry, Ray Yungen, Caryl Matrisciana, and Larry DeBruyn, Warren and Joy’s home was nearly destroyed in a fire (causing the death of four family pets), and months later, Warren suffered a near-fatal heart attack.

We asked Warren recently if he could give us a brief ministry update to share with our readers as we know so many of you have been helped and blessed by his work. Here is what he wrote—

Dear Friends,

The last few years has been a challenging time, but my health and our living situation have more or less stabilized. Thankfully, God has enabled me to keep writing and doing ministry throughout this period. I have completed a number of booklets published by Lighthouse Trails and am presently working on a writing project for Mountain Stream Press. We have also established the Warren B Smith YouTube channel and the newagetoamazinggrace.com website with the help of Chris Lawson and his Spiritual Research Network.

The YouTube channel now has over 2100 subscribers, and we get a lot of good feedback from people who have benefited from watching talks I have given over the years. Many have been made more aware of the spiritual deception that has crept into today’s church, and a number of people have been saved. One formerly prominent New Age leader has publicly testified that our book The Light That Was Dark was instrumental in her Christian conversion.

We are very grateful to those who pray and feel led to support our ministry as we continue to press on to the higher calling of our Lord (Philippians 3:14).

God bless and many thanks,
Warren B. Smith

Please keep Warren and Joy in your prayers as they continue in ministry. If you would like to support them in their work of helping equip the saints and sharing the Gospel, visit www.newagetoamazinggrace.com, or write to them at: P.O. Box 271, Fortine, MT. 59918. Keep in mind that Warren’s YouTube channel is a great resource to share with believers and non-believers alike who are involved somehow with the New Age.

Christian Colleges and Seminaries in More Trouble Than Ever As Many Plunge Into Emergent Spirituality
For nearly 18 years, Lighthouse Trails has been reporting on the slide that evangelical colleges, universities, and seminaries have been taking into the contemplative/emergent/ecumenical river. It would be great if we could say there’s been a real turn around and things at these colleges are getting better. It would be great if we could say that your college-age child is safe in most Christian colleges today. And it would be great if we could say that these schools have realized the error of their ways and have made dramatic efforts to get back on the biblical course. Unfortunately, we cannot say any of these things because they simply are not true.

We were once again reminded of how far off the track evangelical schools have gone when earlier this month we received an e-blast from Christianity Today announcing a 50%-off tuition special for qualifying students to Seattle Pacific University. That will sound very enticing to parents who are looking for Christian education for their college-age children at affordable rates. But let’s take a glance at what these children will be introduced to if they attend Seattle Pacific University:

At SPU’s Center for Biblical and Theological Education, students will be introduced to various forms of contemplative spirituality, and faculty members are being trained to pass them on. For instance, in a 2019 faculty retreat syllabus, the list of activities at the retreat include lectio divina, praying with icons, sabbath keeping, Ignatian Spirituality, and Prayer of Examen. At the upcoming 2020 Winter Discernment Weekend, prospective students will be introduced to “Guided Prayer” and Lectio Divina. “Spiritual Formation” and contemplative spirituality are integrated throughout the spiritual infrastructure of SPU. Faculty Staff Bulletins are peppered with recommendation and accolades for Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, and numerous other hard-core mystics and panentheists.

In addition to the heavily contemplative element at SPU, you will find promotion for all things emergent such as “critical race theory” (a Marxist-leaning ideology) and the so-called “social-justice gospel” (with recommendations for social justice leaders such as Shane Claiborne and SoJourners).

For anyone who understands contemplative spirituality, these things we are sharing won’t come as a surprise because contemplative prayer is the gateway ‘drug,” so to speak, to all things emergent, socialist, Marxist, New Age, and anti-morality. And if there is one thing we hope to get across in this article, it is this: A very large number of Christian higher education institutions are now exhibiting signs that they are being influenced and directed by emergent ideologies; and many of these same schools are the ones we warned about years ago as they started down the contemplative path; the inevitable “fruit” of contemplative prayer is a drastic change in spiritual outlook (i.e., no longer resembling biblical Christianity; i.e., now emergent).

Lancaster Bible College in PA, one of the schools that has been on the Lighthouse Trails Contemplative College List for several years, continues down the contemplative path going deeper and deeper into the emergent world. For a convincing example, their Formational Leadership Master of Arts Degree program is taught by contemplative/emergent/Replacement Theology/New Missiology leader Wayne Cordiero. (More information on this program).

Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho continues incorporating emergent believes into the lives of its students. Some of our readers may remember our 2010 story titled “Buddhist/Universalist Sympathizer Woos Nazarene Students at NNU.” Most Nazarene universities had already been seduced by Catholic contemplative mystic Brennan Manning by then, and so bringing in a Buddhist/universalist sympathizer to NNU was just following contemplative protocol, which they have continued to do.

A few examples of NNU’s current status are the following: In the THEO4900 Religion Capstone course, The Living Reminder by Catholic mystic Henri Nouwen is one of two required textbooks. A graduate course titled COUN6594A Mindfulness Approaches uses Mindfulness and Psychotherapy for its textbook. Another graduate course (YCFM6730 Missional Ministry) uses these four textbooks— Celtic Way of Evangelism, Future Faith, Kingdom Come, and Creating a Missional Culture. In Creating a Missional Culture, the author introduces the reader to Jurgen Moltmann, Karl Barth, Marcus Borg, and several others of the same caliber (these three men are heroes of the emergent movement). In these NNU textbooks, you find the path to emergent, “progressive,” socialist, New Age “Christianity”—something that has become the hallmark for Nazarene universities today. If you attend a Nazarene church, and that church is looking for a new pastor, it would be a good idea to find out how much of his seminary/university training rubbed off on him because you can be sure, he’ll be bringing it to your church.

In 2013, we released our special report titled An Epidemic of Apostasy – How Christian Seminaries Must Incorporate “Spiritual Formation” to Become Accredited, documenting how contemplative spirituality was entering the Christian colleges at an alarming rate. Fast forward to today, and many of these schools are hardly recognizable from where they were at just seven years ago.

In this relatively short article, we have provided examples of just three schools. But we could give countless more of other schools that began opening their doors to the contemplative element, and now are becoming full-fledged emergent schools.

When we started warning about the contemplative movement entering the church through the evangelical colleges, seminaries, and universities back in the early part of this present millennium, our warnings were brushed off and dismissed by many Christian leaders. Today, some of these same leaders are being vocal about the left-leaning, anti-God, socialistic condition of this country. But they either don’t realize or don’t care that the early contemplative pioneers that they embraced twenty plus years ago brought in that very same mindset into the church through contemplative prayer. And now, as older pastors are retiring or passing away, the new younger pastors, trained in the colleges and seminaries, have become evangelists for this anti-Gospel, anti-biblical worldview.

The Calvinist Factor

For the editors at Lighthouse Trails, and for many of our readers, we are not surprised that this paradigm shift has occurred. We have witnessed the terrible apathy and indifference by Christian leaders and many pastors for nearly 18 years. Not only has there been apathy and indifference, but there has been hostility and anger. Just last week, a pastor in Oregon who had been placed on our Christian leaders and pastors booklet mailing list (at the request of one of our readers) called and told us to remove him from the list. He then proceeded to list off about a dozen adjectives to describe us including pugnacious, slanderous, and hateful.

We were curious about this pastor’s church and checked it out on the Internet. It was a Calvinist-promoting church. One reason we have experienced a new level of anger by some pastors and leaders is because of the book we published in 2018 warning about Calvinism (Calvinism: None Dare Call it Heresy). And this brings us to something that needs to be said in this article with regard to the direction evangelical colleges, universities, and seminaries have headed: Many Christian colleges and universities are now embracing or are in the process of embracing Calvinism and Reformed Theology.

This presents a different set of serious problems, in one respect. But as we have stated in other articles, and wholeheartedly believe based on what we have observed, many young people trained in or drawn into Calvinism end up emergent or leaving the faith altogether (such as in the case of the recent departure from the faith by I Kissed Dating Goodbye author Josh Harris).

Aside from the colleges that have historically been Calvinist and Reformed (e.g., The Master’s Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Calvin College), new ones are continually getting on board with Calvinism. A perfect example of this is Bob Jones University (historically the antithesis of a Calvinist school), which now has a Calvinist president. And then there is Southern Baptist Convention. We estimate that as many as half of the Southern Baptist colleges and universities are now Calvinist leaning. One caller, who is a longstanding SBC member that has been in leadership positions, told us that almost all the SBC universities are now Calvinist or Calvinist influenced. A 2007 Christian Post article titled “Calvinism on the Rise” stated: “Nearly 30 percent of recent SBC seminary graduates now serving as church pastors indicate they are Calvinists.” This statistic was based on data presented at the 2006 SBC “Building Bridges: Southern Baptists and Calvinism” conference. We believe that percentage is much higher today because of the increase in Calvinism in the schools. And if our theory is right that many young Calvinists will eventually become emergent or defect the faith (sometimes because they cannot handle the dismal beliefs of John Calvin and Calvinism and sometimes because they haven’t found a personal relationship with Christ through Calvinism), then the outcome is going to be disastrous.

CONCLUSION

Either way you look at it, Christian/evangelical colleges, universities, and seminaries are in trouble. And if they are in trouble, then so are our churches because the schools are producing today’s and tomorrow’s pastors and leaders.

Our exhortation to parents and grandparents is to carefully and prayerfully choose the schools your children and grandchildren will attend. The pickings are getting slimmer every day, but your choices can potentially have eternal consequences or eternal blessings. Please don’t take it lightly.


Editor’s Note: If you know of a young person who attends or who plans to attend a Christian college, university, or seminary, please consider asking him or her to read Castles in the Sand or A Time of Departing. If you cannot afford to get one of these books, write to us at editors@lighthousetrails.com, and we will send a free copy for you to give to that college-age person. If you are wondering why we have so much concern about this, read an article we wrote in 2013 titled “Want Your Child to Become an Atheist? – Send Him to LeTourneau University in Texas (or Any Other Contemplative/Emergent School For That Matter).” It’s a true story, and tragically, it is happening too often.

An Open Letter To A Young Friend . . . (gender: confusion and clarity)
By Bill Randles
Used with permission

Dear X,

I offer you the warmest greetings in the name of Jesus.

I am writing out of a concern for you and a lot of others of your generation. You were born into a world which was already well into a “sexual revolution,” and this has presented you with perplexing questions and issues which my generation (Baby Boomers) didn’t have to bear as much as yours.

I come as a friend, and concerned Christian, in Jesus name. I want you to understand that I know why there is such a gap between my generation and yours.

I didn’t grow up in a world where gender was considered a fluid construct, or one in which my own sexual identity was constantly emphasized, or challenged, from Kindergarten through twelfth grade. To put that upon little children is such a great sin that Jesus warned that those who do so will not escape God’s wrath.

“Sexual Education” was just getting off the ground; we weren’t inundated with such heavy and confusing issues at a young age as you were.

For most of us, gender roles were still set in place like pillars—men were men, women were women, and that was that. No one ever thought to call that into question.

But part of the cultural revolution that you were born into was the destruction of all the former certainties. Sexual anarchists have destroyed notions such as “men are men and women are women,” in the name of freedom. They have pushed away all boundaries in the name of liberty; we have sexual liberation, women’s liberation, gay liberation, LGBT liberation, and now we have transgender liberation.

A famous American Poet once warned us not to “tear down a fence unless you realize what that fence was put there for in the first place.”.

I have noted that your generation is much more tolerant and accepting of any variation of sexuality for you have been taught not to judge anyone.  So many think in terms of “Whatever makes you happy!,” or “Live and let live!,” or “I am cool with that as long as you don’t hurt anybody.”

But I want to raise the question, “What were those old Judeo/Christian moral fences, which we tore down, put there for?”

You ask, “Why is it wrong for a girl to kiss another girl?” (I assume romantically). What could be wrong with two people loving each other?  What makes anything wrong in the first place? What determines “good or evil”? Are we able to determine for ourselves what good and evil is? Or is there a fixed standard?

The truth is, dear X, there is really nothing “gay” about being gay because it goes against the way we were created by God. There can be no real home, future, children, lasting legacy, or security in two boys or two girls kissing romantically; only rebellion, lust, and bitter disappointment, as many, many millions have found, according to statistics of suicide and drug abuse among “gays.”

Sexuality is part of the image of God.“Male and female created he them; and blessed them.”This is why sexual questions are extremely important, and sexual confusion is a serious danger. God Himself has assigned the sexual roles; they are not optional, nor are they mere “societal constructs.”

The Bible says that the truest meaning of marriage and sexuality is as a picture: of Christ and His church. Every man and woman at an altar stands as a symbol of something greater and more ancient, for marriage points to the redeeming love of Jesus for His church (whosoever believes on Him), which he purchased with His own blood.

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,  That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:  For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:25-32)

A man’s role in marriage is to imitate Christ, in selfless devotion to his wife and family, laying down his life in countless services, protections, and provision. The wife is to uphold her husband, loving, and respecting him. Together they build a safe nurturing place to rear children.This is the scriptural vision of marriage.

Of course, no one has done it perfectly since the fall, but this is God’s plan for human stability and happiness.

This is what makes adultery, incest, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, and any other distortion of sexuality such a serious issue. How serious? So serious that those who continue in these things will not be able to enter the Kingdom of God for it is an act of rebellion against God.

It all comes down to whether or not you are going to believe that God’s way will make you happy, or man’s way. This was the choice Adam and Eve were presented with, and they chose Satan’s lie, that doing their own thing would make them happier, wiser, and better people. Homosexuality and gender distortion is a modern form of that same lie.

I am praying for you, dear X, that you will come through this time of testing in agreement with your Creator, and that you will find true happiness in marriage, motherhood, and all of life as a Christian.

Your concerned Friend,
Pastor Bill

And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Matthew 19:4-6)

6 Questions Every Gay Person Should Ask” by Michael Tays Carter

 

 

Ironside: “What if I Am Predestinated for Hell?”

LTRP Note: The following is from Harry Ironside’s book Full Assurance.

By Harry Ironside

Answering the Following: “Sometimes I am afraid I am predestinated to be damned; if so, I can do nothing to alter my terrible case.”

No one was ever predestinated to be damned. Predestination is a precious truth of inestimable value and comfort when rightly understood. Will you not turn to your Bible and read for yourself in the only two chapters in which this word “predestinate” or “predestinated” is found? The first is Romans 8:29-30:

For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

The other chapter is Ephesians 1. In verse 5, we read:

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will.

And in verse 11, it says:

Being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.

You will note there is no reference in these four verses to either Heaven or Hell but to Christlikeness eventually. Nowhere are we told in Scripture that God predestinated one man to be saved and another to be lost. Men are to be saved or lost eternally because of their attitude toward the Lord Jesus Christ:

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (John 3:36)

Predestination means that someday all the redeemed shall become just like the Lord Jesus! Is not this precious? Do not try to make a bugaboo out of that which was intended to give joy and comfort to those who trust in the Savior. Trust Him for yourself, and you will know that God has predestinated you to be fully conformed to the image of His Son.

God loved the world of sinners lost
And ruined by the fall;
Salvation full, at highest cost,
He offers free to all.
(Martha M. Stockton, 1821-1885)

“Bringing Light To Areas of Darkness”
By the Editors at Lighthouse Trails

In the year 2000, we learned that a mantra-style meditation coupled with a mystical spirituality had been introduced to the evangelical Christian church and was infiltrating youth groups, churches, seminaries, and Bible studies at an alarming rate.

In the spring of 2002, we began Lighthouse Trails Publishing with the hope of exposing this dangerous and pervasive mystical paradigm—six months later we published our first release, A Time of Departing by Ray Yungen.

As we learned more about contemplative spirituality (also known as the Spiritual Formation movement), we came to realize it had entered the church through a number of avenues.

Because the premise of this spirituality is both pantheistic (God is all things) and panentheistic (God is in all things), thus refuting the Gospel message of the Cross, we are compelled to address this subject. Lighthouse Trails Publishing and our research ministry, Lighthouse Trails Research Project, are here as a service to the body of Christ.

Since publishing A Time of Departing, Lighthouse Trails has grown from one couple, David and Deborah Dombrowski, to numerous authors, editors and web assistants. We all have one thing in common and that is our desire to contend for the biblical Christian faith and defend the message of the Cross.

Since we began, we have come to identify certain elements in society and in the church that are leading people away from the Gospel and toward death. These include mysticism, evolution, the New Age, homosexuality, abortion, Communism/Marxism, anti-Semitism, pornography, and pedophilia. Thus, you will see in our writings that we talk about these issues, exposing them in the light of God’s Word. You will see articles, blog posts, books, booklets, CDs, and DVDs about the evolution/creation debate, the holocaust, the emerging church, child sexual abuse, and more.

We also seek to bring forth the writings of men and women who encourage, exhort, and edify the body of Christ and reach out to the lost through teachings that lift up the name of Jesus Christ and present the Gospel of salvation.

Each of the books, booklets, DVDs, and CDs we publish and/or distribute has been prayerfully chosen . . . and we believe the message in each one will help equip Christian believers with biblical truth and inspiration to stand in courage and strength while defending the faith and walking with Jesus Christ. We join you in that effort, knowing it is only by His grace that we are able to stand.

The Story Behind Lighthouse Trails

The New Age Christian—An Accepted Oxymoron
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is important to understand that Satan is not simply trying to draw people to the dark side of a good versus evil conflict. Actually, he is trying to eradicate the gap between himself and God, between good and evil, altogether.

By Ray Yungen

The current popularity with meditative contemplative mysticism presents a very perplexing challenge for evangelical Christianity. We are now encountering the New Age or Aquarian Christian. This term describes someone who remains in his or her home church and professes the Christian faith but has also incorporated various aspects of the New Age or Aquarian mindset into his or her life. New Age author David Spangler was very optimistic about the possibility of this integration when he wrote, “The point is that the New Age is here . . . it builds itself and forms itself in the midst of the old.”1

What has fueled the momentum of this trend is the buffet-style dining approach that has become a hallmark of American religious sensibilities in the last thirty years—you take what you want and leave the rest. Americans are picking and blending religions as if they were ordering espressos: pick your espresso blend, but you still get coffee—pick your spiritual path, but you still get God. Whatever suits your spiritual tastes, you bring together. The result is hybrid New Age spirituality.

I recall a conversation once with a woman in a coffee bar. We chatted on spiritual subjects, and her comments led me to believe she was an evangelical Christian. Towards the end of our friendly conversation she dropped a bombshell on me when she blurted-out, “Well, we all have the Christ consciousness!”

In another incident, a local pastor shared with me how a woman he had long known as a strong solid Christian was almost swept up by New Age thinking. Her young adult son had been addicted to drugs and went through a drug rehabilitation program. In the process, his counselor introduced him to New Age spirituality.  He, in turn, shared it with his mother, giving her a book to read titled Conversations With God (a New Age bestseller).

Incredibly, she found herself being swayed by the book’s arguments and began to doubt whether or not her evangelical Christianity was indeed the only way to God. Her desire to see her son aligned with God left her mind open in welcoming the possibility that various mystical paths were equally genuine in finding God.  It took this pastor nearly two hours to help this woman understand the error of her thinking. Keep in mind this woman was a solid and devoted Christian who had been living her Christian faith for decades. If these Christians can be swayed, what about people who are even more vulnerable to what is going on in the larger culture?

The New Age message has such a positive ring that it is necessary to look behind the appealing facade to see what is actually there. If one goes to a massage therapist who does Reiki, one should know the true nature of that practice. If your doctor wants you to meditate, you should know the spiritual dangers of eastern-style meditation. As the world moves further into becoming a full-fledged mystical society, it will become increasingly difficult to escape the ideas and practices I have warned about for many years. Christians must become aware of what is happening in order to make informed choices about things that may adversely affect them spiritually. In addition, many of our friends, family members, and co-workers will be seeking spiritual solutions to the uncertainties of our society and the world in which we live as a whole. The following account brings this point home like no other. A Christian in Georgia e-mailed me with the following story:

At work a colleague who is a deacon at the local Baptist church was telling me about his visits to a local woman for “Therapeutic Massage.” He said she used “some kind of Indian technique.” I asked him if it was Reiki and he said “Yeah that’s it. She’s a Reiki practitioner.”

I told him what I had read in your book about Reiki, and he got defensive. 

He said, “I don’t care what it is as long as it works.” I was floored.

I said, “You are a deacon. How can you make such a statement?”

He said, “There are several deacons at my church that believe in Reiki.”

I pleaded with him to do some research on the subject, and I sent him an e-mail with quotes off some sites that promote Reiki. Later, he told me he could see where I was coming from but that as long as he didn’t believe in the spiritual aspect of it, he didn’t see why he shouldn’t participate in it. I was surprised that there was a Reiki practitioner in the middle of rural Bible Belt America. I guess nothing should shock me anymore.2

One book on the Chakra system (what Reiki is based on) clearly shows:

Many people who have open crown chakras have had a profound spiritual experience in which their usual sense of being separate and apart falls away and there is a feeling of being at One with All and Everything.  There is a profound sense of merging. . . . There is, in essence, a feeling that All of This is God, and I Am a part of all of This so I, too, Am God.3

This concept of course, has its source in the spirit world. The Reiki News provides this evidence:

Imagine my surprise during my first Reiki class when I observed the astral images of guides and healing spirits pouring forth bright shimmering rays of healing energy at the hands of novice practitioners. 4

Interest in Reiki and other mystical practices are accelerating to such a degree that most people will come face to face with this sooner or later. One popular counselor made the following assessment regarding the growing momentum of New Age practical mysticism:

We cannot overstate how profoundly their impact is being felt in education, business, medicine, and psychotherapy. It is safe to say that the prevailing religion in America . . . is no longer Christianity but is instead New Age.5

It would not surprise me if the majority of people in America have a family member or close friend who does mantra meditation, practices yoga, has either encountered Reiki or Therapeutic Touch, or is an avid fan of the Oprah Winfrey show. How could anyone possibly conceive that any of these seemingly benign or even helpful methods or talkshows might have a connection to Satan or that which is against God? A brother in Christ whom I met for coffee one day gave me the answer to that question: He referred to the Scripture in which Eve took of the fruit, and while it had the appearance of something good, the results of her partaking were detrimental.

And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat. . . . (Genesis 3:6)

Secondly, and just as important, what actually constitutes that which is satanic? Virtually everyone in Christendom equates that term, satanic, with things dark and sinister. However, the Bible paints a far different picture of Satan—one that fits the New Age movement perfectly. Satan said, “I will be like the most High” (Isaiah 14:14). He did not say he would be the Most High; he said he would be like the Most High. The word “like” here means to correspond to. How could Satan accomplish this mission?

It is important to understand that Satan is not simply trying to draw people to the dark side of a good versus evil conflict. Actually, he is trying to eradicate the gap between himself and God, between good and evil, altogether. When we understand this approach, it helps us see why the Catholic mystic monk Thomas Merton said everyone is already united with God or why Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul author) said he felt God flowing through all things. All means all—nothing left out. Such reasoning implies that God has given His glory to all of creation; since Satan is part of creation, then he too shares in this glory, and thus is “like the most High.”

Contrary to this belief of good and evil merging and man or creation becoming “like the most High,” man and God can only be brought together through the Cross. If the all-is-one view was true, then salvation through a Redeemer would become unnecessary and Jesus’ death on the Cross would be rendered altogether futile and pointless. In order for the Cross to make any sense, there must be a separation between God’s perfect nature and Man’s sin nature. We know Satan has only one enemy—the Cross; he knows that without it no human being can be restored to God.

The Bible says the message of the Cross is the power of God, and while there are two opposing spiritual realms, God has always and will always, prevail. Satan can never thwart God’s ultimate plan. And yet, today’s Western society is enticed by practical mystics who deny, by their own proclamations, God’s plan of eternal salvation. Will the majority of mankind come to believe that all is one and there is no line to be drawn in the sand regarding good and evil? The Bible admonishes, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil” (Isaiah 5:20).

Yet, such a plan now exists and will shape future events—events that will alter the course on which millions will advance.

Roma Downey Promotes New Age Doctrine (God “In” Everyone & Everything)—Christian Leaders Say Nothing

Catholic Priest Believes Francis Chan Heading Into Catholic Church Based on Eucharistic Sermon

Francis Chan, author of Crazy Love, is one of the most popular authors and speakers within the evangelical church today. He has been the subject of a number of Lighthouse Trails articles based on his ecumenical activities as well as statements he made threatening that God will destroy those who challenge Christian leaders. Last week, Chan gave a sermon promoting the Catholic view of communion (i.e., the Eucharist), which led to several online responses, one of which was a Catholic priest who weighed in with a YouTube video* expressing his zeal and belief that Chan is about to convert to the Catholic faith.

For those who may not know what communion means according to Catholic doctrine, it is the belief that the bread in communion actually is transformed (by a priest) into the literal body and presence of Jesus Christ. Roger Oakland, author of Another Jesus: the eucharistic christ and the new evangelization, explains:

[T]he Catholic Church’s doctrine of the Eucharist is based on the concept of transubstantiation, a belief that the Catholic priest has the power to turn a wafer of bread into the actual body, soul and divinity of Jesus. [This is] the very foundation of the Catholic faith. (p. 23)

As Oakland documents in his book, the Catholic Church stands so strongly on the Eucharist that The Canons and Decrees of the Council of Trent states that anyone who denies this view is anathema (cursed) (1978, p. 79, Canon 1). The Catechism of the Catholic Church reiterates:

If anyone says that Christ received in the Eucharist is received spiritually only and not also sacramentally and really, let him be anathema. (Canon 8)

With such strong admonitions from Catholic doctrine, it’s easy to see why a Catholic priest would believe Francis Chan’s sermon heavily promoting eucharistic communion indicates Chan is about to convert to Catholicism. In his view, the only way to receive this transformed bread and wine is through a Catholic priest performing “transubstantiation.”

Be that as it may, a growing number of evangelicals (such as Joseph Prince and Bill Johnson) are beginning to explore and even embrace the Catholic view of the “literal” body, blood, and presence of Christ in communion—priest or no priest. Roger Oakland explains how dangerous this is and how it is helping to bring about a one-world religion that worships a false christ. He exhorts Christians to ask the question, “Is there a difference between the Catholic (Eucharistic) Christ and the Jesus of the Bible?” We believe emphatically that there is, as Oakland documents in his book and his article “Why the Catholic (and Emerging Church) “Eucharist” Does Not Line Up With Scripture.”

Whether Francis Chan is going to become Catholic or not, only time will tell. But two things we know for sure: the Catholic Church uses, as its strongest means, the eucharist as an “evangelistic” tool to “bring back the lost brethren (the Protestants) into the “Mother Church”; and second, even if Francis Chan himself does not convert, he is opening the door and showing the way for his followers to enter the Roman Catholic Church, and no doubt, many will as they seek to experience this eucharistic christ who will ultimately put them into the arms of Rome.

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4)

Two Sources of Power But Only One Source of Truth

Nanci Des Gerlaise is a First Nations Canadian Cree woman who is the daughter and granddaughter of medicine men. Growing up, her life was filled with the practices and mystical experiences brought on from Native Spirituality. Today, as a born-again Christian, Nanci warns of these dangers as she sees many of her Native American Christian brothers and sisters incorporating Native Spirituality into their spiritual lives and also sees many non-Native Christians incorporating Native Spirituality into their own lives. A deep love for both Native Americans and non-Natives is what motivated Nanci to write her biography Muddy Waters.

By Nanci Des Gerlaise
(From Muddy Waters)

“Two Sources of Power But Only One Source of Truth”

Be not carried about with divers and strange doctrines. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace. (Hebrews 13:9)

Many Native Americans believe that because a power lies within their spirituality or that because it is ancestral and traditional, it is right and true. But assuming that the mere presence of spiritual power means it is good can be very dangerous. The Bible is full of warnings about the subtlety and dangers of demonic powers and deception.1

Instead of believing that anything spiritually powerful is good, we rather must ask: What is the actual source of this power? Does it really connect its practitioners with a trustworthy spiritual realm? Does it originate from the one true and living God whose only Son came in the flesh and died on the Cross for our sins? Does it deliver what it promises? Or do we actually get something else? Something false and deceitful? Jesus’ first reply when asked about the signs of His return was to watch out that we are not deceived. And 1 Thessalonians 5:21–22 warns us to, “Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

We need to test all things and see if their claims hold up in the light of truth.

Throughout the ages, an epic battle has raged between two sources of power: God’s and Satan’s. However, they are not in any way equal. The Eternal God created Satan and granted him limited power for a season. That battle has not ceased or desisted by any stretch of the imagination, but in our time, it has grown far more subtle, powerful, and widespread.

Second Corinthians 11:14-15 warns us that Satan is “transformed into an angel of light,” and his “ministers” (demons) are “transformed as the ministers of righteousness.” Thus, it is absolutely imperative that we are able to discern true from false and genuine from counterfeit.

Why do we need discernment? some may ask. First of all, if we are Christians, born of the Holy Spirit through the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, God will judge our works and hold us accountable for decisions we make and how we live our lives.

For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. (1 Corinthians 3:11–13)

For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? (1 Peter 4:17)

On the other hand, those of you who are not born-again Christians should be very sober-minded about your eternal destination. If you do not accept His free gift of salvation and believe in Him to be your Savior and Lord, you will spend eternity in darkness where there is no good thing.

He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (John 3:36)

It’s easy in this age of do-it-yourself cafeteria-style religion to become confused and to miss the truth. For instance, some professing Christians actually call Jesus Christ a shaman (a witch doctor) and the gifts of the Holy Spirit a form of shamanism or witchcraft.

This blasphemous view reveals a flagrant lack of understanding of the true character of Christ and His holiness and the true character of the devil and evil.

Still others professing to be Christians say that the works we do save us and get us into Heaven. Roman Catholicism, for instance, teaches this unbiblical doctrine (justification by works), and its influence is also widespread among Native Americans.

As a child, I used to attend a Roman Catholic Church. I loved hearing about Jesus and being chosen to help lead the hymns, but I didn’t realize they were teaching me a false gospel and telling me about the wrong Jesus. The Bible says:

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:8–9)

The ungodly mixture of occultism and works, as a means to obtain spiritual power, has existed for centuries among the Native peoples. Back in the 1800s and the early 1900s, the Canadian government subjected them to residential schools to “Christianize” these “pagan people” by forcing Catholicism down their throats.

They never “Christianized” the Native people, but left them with a bitter taste in their mouths. As a result, they are generally quite angry towards religion, which is understandable. This is not the love, forgiveness, or new life that the real Lord Jesus Christ gives to people. When I read the words below from Revelation 18:4–5, I knew they were speaking to me about renouncing all aspects of this false gospel:

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not any of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

Second Corinthians 4:4 tells us that Satan has blinded the minds of the unbelieving. Those who are spiritually blind cannot know true freedom or new life in Christ.

But whether we are believers or unbelievers, we have this in common: We have the same enemy, Satan. The devil hates mankind because he hates anything that is created in God’s image, and he will do everything possible to hinder and destroy us, even while promising to bless us.

The great difference is that Christians have been born again and have been delivered from Satan’s realm by the atoning death of Jesus Christ. They never again have to be subject to the devil’s power. That’s why it is so incredibly tragic when they fail to recognize when they are partakers in the works of darkness despite how the Bible continually urges them to test everything.

On the other hand, the unbeliever walks in darkness and has no real escape from Satan’s realm and power unless he or she calls upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. God longs to deliver the unbeliever from Satan’s grasp:

To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. (Acts 26:18)

There is hope for the unbeliever for Romans 10:13 tells us: “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (taken from Muddy Waters, pp. 62-64)

1. See 2 Corinthians 11:3; 13–15; 1 John 4:1–3; Acts 20:29; Revelation 13:11–14.

Donating to Lighthouse Trails

SUPPORTING LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS: For those who would like to support Lighthouse Trails, we always appreciate both your prayers and your giving. And for those who have faithfully done that over the years, we thank you with all of our hearts. We know that some people may have the impression that Lighthouse Trails does quite well financially because we sell products that we publish and because our resources have had such a far reach; but, the truth is, it takes everything made through sales to keep Lighthouse Trails operating. Publishing, at least for small presses such as ours, is rarely a high-profit business. It would take a best seller to see that, one that the masses of people love. And because we are not just a business, but even more so a ministry, we keep our prices as low as we can, give away many resources, and have also made much of our material available for free on the research site and blog. That's not how big corporations run things as that would hurt the bottom line (profit), but we see the needs out there, and we trust God to keep us going as long as He sees fit.

We thank you in advance for seeing the value in a ministry like Lighthouse Trails and coming along side us with your prayers and support.

It is our prayer that we will faithfully be humble servants of the Lord’s work for years to come should the Lord tarry. If you would like to donate to Lighthouse Trails, you may send a donation by mailing it to: Lighthouse Trails, P.O. Box 908, Eureka, MT 59917. Or you may call 866/876-3910.
