Former UK Prime Minister, Tony Blair has created the Tony Blair Faith Foundation to unify the world's religions. Blair is especially interested in promoting the benefits of globalization to Christian churches. There are a number of prominent American ministers who have endorsed his Tony Blair Faith Foundation with its emphasis on globalization or global government. In Revelation we read about this coming one world religion and the False Prophet who unites the world's religions in order to bring peace to Planet Earth under the rule of Antichrist.

US and Canadian reports say Anglican leadership "tearing the fabric of the Communion to shreds"
LONDON, February 16, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com, with files from VirtueOnline) - As long as a homosexual partnership is "faithful and lifelong," it presents only the same ethical questions as a natural marriage, wrote the head of the Church of England in a series of letters, dating from 2000 and 2001, that have only just been made public.

"Daddy God" is how Victoria Osteen refers to Him. Honestly. I'm not making this up. When Mr Joel Osteen took a wife, it was Victoria he got, for better or for worse. Now the two of them preside over a mega-church in a suburb of Houston. Mr Osteen is the author of a super-bestselling book, Your Best Life Now. God wants us to be prosperous, he argues, in front of thousands of worshippers.Ã‚Â
"Local Church" teachings go astray on many major points, placing them in the class of cults or false prophets. A non-biblical cult is a group claiming to have the truth, but who teach Biblical error and erroneous personal revelations. Four general ways to recognize a cult are:
Deviation from one or more major Christian foundations such as the Trinity, divinity of Jesus, the bodily resurrection, second coming, authority of the Bible, salvation through Jesus.

Much has been said regarding Patrick Dixon being regarded as a charismatic guru figure and a physician turned physician to organizations, even recognized as such in certain secular circles.
Jacob Prasch & Moriel agree that Patrick Dixon is indeed a "guru" but not of a biblically Christian kind, rather of the classic Hindu kind.
First Plumbline Apologetics
Patricia King statesÃ‚Â :"(http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com/orrel30.html)":Ã‚Â "Recently while teaching at the Glory School in Dudley England. I had a spiritual encounter regarding the Blue Flame of the Lord. In this encounter, I could feel myself soaring like an eagle, looking toward the sun while in flight. Eagles (often biblical symbols of the prophetic in the natural) have an extra membrane over their eyes that other birds do not have this allows them to look directly into the sun without any damage to their vision. As I gazed at the sun, I could feel myself being drawn toward its center and then I saw it - the blue flame. It was so beautiful, I could feel its strength and its passion ... May we gaze mm the fiery love of God. Let us prepare to receive revelation into the deep mysteries of God "(Patricia King). This vision, however, in not original to King, and is replicated exactly in New Age teaching. Listen to an incantation to the ascended master and the "I AM". "I invoke the blue flame which represents the divine power of my father God."

Will Rejecting Pentecostalism and Charismatic Gifts Solve The Churches' Problems?
In the recent few years a number of people who had always been open to the gifts of the Holy Spirit have felt driven away from that belief into a stoic non-charismatic or even an anti-charismatic or anti-Pentecostal Christianity. There exists a combination of reasons for this trend. Among them are the unbalanced and anti-scriptural extremism of Toronto and Pensacola, the essentially mystical and New Age perversions of biblical theology by the Vineyard Movement, the Shamanism copied from Buddhism and Hinduism by Yongee Cho, and the Altered States of Consciousness as Christian experience argued for by Patrick Dixon. To this has been added the failed prophetic predictions of men like Paul Cane, Mike Bickle and the Kansas City Prophets', Gerald Coates, and Rick Joyner. Perhaps worst of all has been the wild televised proliferation of money-oriented faith-prosperity preachers and bogus faith healers who are too numerous to mention, that seem to be good for nothing other than discrediting the Gospel in the eyes of the public, conning undiscerning and biblically ignorant Christians out of money better donated to honest missions, Christian charity, and biblical forms of evangelism, and too often even getting people killed when they cease vital medical therapy wrongly believing they have been healed when they have not been. (When Jesus heals people without medical intervention, as He sometimes does, they do not die.)

This article was first written in response to the unprecedented year of drought in 2006 but it also has correlations with recent events in Australia.
With the past year in retrospect, one thing is certain: it was the year that drought came.
From one corner of the parched globe to the other, 2006 was a truly exceptional year for drought, which brought despair to many and hugely impacted global agriculture with many implications for annual food production.
However, one region in particular did not escape the implacable scourge. With its record temperature rise "“ along with below average rainfall "“ Australia suffered what is said to have been its worst drought in a thousand years. :"(The Guardian, 8 November 2006
http://www.guardian.co.uk/australia/ story/0,,1941942,00.html)":Ã‚Â As the extreme dearth took its hold, devastating huge swathes of the country and forest fires raged rampant, severe water restrictions were imposed as reservoirs ran dry.
The primary rift between the father and the son in the Crystal Cathedral Garden Grove, CA, pulpit was about changes the son, Robert Anthony Schuller, wanted to make in terms of transparency and accountability, but were resisted by his father Robert H. Schuller, key board members and ministry heads of the church, says a source knowledgeable about the church's inner circle.
