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.

Why There Must Be Yet Another Mystical Revival
For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you. (I Cor. 11:19)
If there wasn't a false mystical revival, ala Lakeland, sooner or later someone would have to manufacture one. Likewise a Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland and flavor of the day, Todd Bentley. These people are not the authors of their respective heresies, (they are far
less innovative than they realize). They only embody them. They are the proponents of a false spirituality embraced by thousands of professing Christians around the world. They merely act out and express the false spirituality of their constituency, that is why no
matter how many times these spurious revivals are discredited, as soon as another one breaks out there is a ready made congregation to joyfully participate in them.
I am only echoing the prophet Jeremiah in His own day who lamented that:
The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule on their own authority; And My people love it so! But what will you do at the end of it?

We, the leaders of the modern phenomenon known as the church growth movement, or megachurch movement, wish to correspond with the leaders of the past, namely the Old Testament prophets, Jesus Christ, the apostles, the reformers, and the revivalists, about some differences between your methods and ours that are becoming increasingly apparent. We cannot help but acknowledge that you did a commendable job in advancing our heavenly Father's Kingdom. We are especially inclined to admire your accomplishments given that you labored under such difficult circumstances and without the knowledge of our modern methods. How you built such great and enduring walls for the King without the contemporary straw and mortar that we find so helpful is a puzzling mystery to us.

A movie will be unveiled on April 5 that should get a prize for honesty in blasphemy. Unlike the emerging church celebrity authors and speakers who shuck and jive when asked direct questions about God, salvation, and truth, The Moses Code is produced by those who will tell you right out what they believe. What they do believe is breathtaking in its Satanic audacity. In the movie trailer, promoters of The Moses Code cheerfully announce that I AM is something all of us can say. Towards the end of the clip, one young man looks up and into the camera and tells viewers, "I am the way, the truth, and the life." The website says the following:

Edmund Burke said that, "the only thing necessary for evil men to triumph is for good men to do nothing." I like to add that if you know something is wrong and evil and affecting people and you do not speak up on it then you not loving people. This principle can be applied to the Christianity.

AÃ‚Â Response To The Letters We Have Received Regarding David Wilkerson's UK Visit
Joash was a good king who all his life did much good in the sight of The Lord. He restored God's House, sought revival, and pointed the people to righteousness. For many long years he served The Lord earnestly with an honest heart.
Last year I visit Thailand and during my visit I felt uneasy the whole time because of the idolatry that was everywhere. Everywhere you turned there was an idol. I felt a spiritual oppression and a real demonic work there with temples on every street corner. When I visit Rome I get the same sense as I see Roman mythology in the form of Roman Catholicsm. But now, I am sad to say, I have the same uneasiness, the same gut wrenching feeling now in my own country!

If there has been one distinguishing characteristic of popular Charismatic, Pentecostal and even Evangelical Christianity in the closing years of this millennium, it has been the pursuit of the "New Thing" and the "Great End-Times Revival", which in theory would sweep the world into the Kingdom and usher in the "greatest move of God ever seen" - greater even than in the book of Acts. Through the prophecies and teachings of Charismatic leaders, an expectation has developed of a Last-Days cutting-edge church which would move in such power and anointing that world leaders would search out the wisdom of its leaders, and whole nations would fall trembling at its feet.

When the book Perpetuated in Righteousness came out in the early 90s we plainly saw a problem with the author Daniel Kikawa claiming that the Hawaiians could have come from Israel - as Israel as they were traveling into the Promised Land another exodus was taking place a s a group was called to Hawaii. He even claimed they had numerous teachings that God gave Israel by looking at the gospel in the stars. P rior to any missionary coming to Hawaii with the Bible they had the teaching of the trinity. He made bold claims like this without any references- Many accounts in Polynesia of the creation of man. Some of them state that the supreme triune God made the heavens and earth in six days and rested on the seventh day (p.70 4th ed.) see http://www.letusreason.org/Current67.htm -Ã‚Â http://www.letusreason.org/Current68.htmÃ‚Â

All Scripture quotations are from the New King James Version, unless otherwise stated.
Christianity experiences unprecedented attacks on its foundational truths. These attacks are motivated and coordinated by evil forces that are intent on deceiving all people as a prelude to revealing the Antichrist and physically establishing Satan's kingdom on earth. Their main obstacle is biblical beliefs in the deity, atoning death, resurrection and second coming of Jesus Christ. As a result, attacks against evangelical Christianity are on the increase, being aimed at discrediting the canonical books of the Bible, and thus also the God and Saviour of the Bible.
