Moriel and Jacob Prasch fully endorse the recent conference remarks by Paul Smith warning about the seriously dangerous nature of the actions and false doctrines of Rick Warren.
Any honest review of the irrefutable facts supports Paul Smith's caveats.

Since processing this article I have discovered that here in Brisbane, Nexus Church (alias Northside Christian Church (AoG), former senior pastor John Lewis, currently pastored by Murray and Jane Averill - http://nexuschurch.com.au/about-us/senior-pastors ) is an associate Church using Johnson's 'bible college' modules "“ (http://nexuschurch.com.au/encounter-ministry-training/1st-year-modules ), which only goes to show how rapidly and far error spreads. I find this particularly disappointing as the father of Murray, the late Lloyd Averill (1913-2010) lectured me in Bible College (1957-1959) and John Lewis was a good friend. How alert we must be in these days of deception and departure:

I am really hoping to make this the last of this type of article for awhile. Some people think I "love" putting out this stuff. But I honestly wish it would all go away, so we could get on with the 'real' work of building the kingdom.

Reformed theologyÃ‚Â is associated with the Institutes of John Calvin and the definition and even redefinition of Calvin's ideas by his later followers led by Theodore Beza at The Remonstrance of Dort in Holland. It is a theology of the 16th century reformers who recognized the evils of Rome and attempted to remove the unbiblical rituals and traditions from Christianity. They adopted the state church system, including infant baptism, thus replacing a Roman Catholic state church with a Protestant one. As with Roman Catholicism, Calvin followed the Latin Vulgate more than the original Greek and Hebrew and like the papacy he subscribed to patristic as well as apostolic authority. He saw the church fathers, especially Augustine, as a source of doctrinal authority in addition to the New Testament. Philosophically, Reformed theology has more in common with Islam than with Judeo-Christian thought because of its European version of the Muslim belief "Inja allah" - everything that happens is the perfect will of the creator. Thus in Calvinism, as opposed to scriptural Christianity, God creates certain people to go to hell to be eternally tortured and thus God, not Satan, becomes the author of death and evil.
We are adding this to our LinksÃ‚Â page but thought to post it here as well. They have a web page called "Ministry Watch" which is an excellent resource for finding out the financial condition of many ministries. On the front page is a list of "30 Shining Light Ministries" who do the best job of getting as close to 100% of donations out to the field, and "30 Donor Alert Ministries" which is a kind of financial hall of shame. They provide this report which briefly states the problem with each "winner".
I heard Jacob speak as a guest on TruNews radio program and was quite impressed with his viewpoints.Ã‚Â Would Jacob please answer 2 questions I have for him:
When does he believe the rapture of the Church will take place in relation to the 7 year Tribulation?
What does he think about the modern day Apostolic Movement.Ã‚Â Does he believe the office of Apostle is relevant for today?

Joseph Prince claims in this book to have a radical new understanding of grace.
Throughout the book he puts forth the tired old lies of the word faith movement. "You can live without suffering and sickness, everything you do will be successful" etc.
The only real difference being, while the Word Faith crowd claim it all by a redefined and unbiblical "˜faith', Prince teaches that all these things are assured under his version of "˜grace'. The new "˜grace' of Joseph Prince removes the need of repentance, and confession of sins from the Christian life. He also denies that God will ever bring conviction to a believer about their sin. To live under Prince's grace, we simply need to confess that we are righteous. That is the secret to the Christian life.

A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. "” Luke 6:45
There seems to be a growing trend in the Church for the clergy to feed the sensual appetite through their sermons. What we are dealing with are pastors who have dirty minds and potty mouths. The word that best describes them is profane.
The following definition of profane is from the Merriam Webster dictionary:
1: to treat (something sacred) with abuse, irreverence, or contempt: desecrate
2: to debase by a wrong, unworthy, or vulgar use
So profanity is language that shows disrespect for something sacred, such as the name of God. Not taking the Lord's Name in vain is one of the Ten Commandments:
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vainÃ‚Â (Exodus 20:7).

Mark Stibbe, the UK proponent of Todd Bentley and every other deception based on neo-Gnostic mysticism and heresy, has been publicly reported to have abandoned his wife and children after promoting Todd Bentley who did the same. Stibbe had been leader of St. Andrews Chorleywood in the UK from where he and David Pytches promoted the Toronto counterfeit and the Kansas City false prophets including the homosexual alcoholic Paul Cain and sexual predator Bob Jones. After promoting Todd Bentley, Stibbe left St. Andrews to head a trust that supposedly is established to combat the problem of fatherless children. Ironically, but not surprisingly, in imitation of his hero Todd Bentley - Mr. Stibbe has gone into the enterprise of promulgating the problem. We should not be surprised.
