Volume 16, Issue 1

Dear All,

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ!


The feature in this newsletter is "Redefining Christianity - Understanding the Purpose Driven Movement" by Bob DeWaay as excerpted in the Discernment Newsletter, Volume 17  Number 3, May/June 2006 from DeWaay's book by the same name available here.  I continue to receive more and more complaints about the after effects of "purpose driven" materials and Rick Warren's Dominionist agenda from churches all over the world.  Apparently if you don't sign on to his programs (literally) you are seen as a traitor to the "cause" and are vilified.  We have shown repeatedly that Warren's ideas are, in many cases, not biblical at all but rather clever schemes.  The Lord warned us about schemers (Eph. 4:14) who would try to gain followers from within the body of Christ.  Those who write books, intentionally stripped of the Gospel message, in order to promote an egotistical and unbiblical Dominionist agenda of the New Apostolic Reformation and Emerging Church, are exactly those we have been warned to avoid.

1 Tim. 6:3-5  If anyone teaches false doctrines and does not agree to the sound instruction of our Lord Jesus Christ and to godly teaching, he is conceited and understands nothing ... who have been robbed of the truth and who think that godliness is a means to financial gain.
If you don't think that men like Warren are writing books for financial gain you are giving him more credit than he is due.  His book sales are funding an entire unbiblical movement!  Warren has intentionally avoided the controversy of the Gospel in order to sell books, as well as ingratiating himself with the media such as Ladies Home Journal.  I find this despicable.  Christians are not put here on earth to take over the systems of government of the world ("overthrow the governments" according to C. Peter Wagner) and solve all worldly problems while bragging about what we plan to do.  We are here to be light and salt and humbly preach the Gospel.  I have seen Warren balk at numerous golden opportunities in print and on TV to explain the Gospel message AT ALL.  This is why it is still a mystery to me why so many churches have signed on to the programs of a man whose stated mentors are heretic Robert Schuller and false apostle C. Peter Wagner.  Time to go back to the Bible and study to show yourself approved (2 Tim. 2:15)!

Critical Missiological Issue!!

This DVD video series features Mike Oppenheimer and Sandy Simpson and their in depth research regarding the First Nations Movement and World Christian Gatherings of Indigenous Peoples which is part of the New Apostolic Reformation.  This is an issue that pastors and missionaries need to be informed of because it goes to the core of evangelism and preaching the Gospel.  Go here for ordering details!

Important DVD Study Series!

This video study series is taken from the Discernment Toolkit  book but includes a lot of footage of false teachers and false prophets.  It will help you and/or your group learn how to test, discern and judge teaching and prophecy that is out there today in a very practical way.  It covers the core doctrines, how we can use them to test, and examples on the DVD that can be paused for discussion.  This series also includes a teacher guide and links to resources on the web.  This 3-DVD series is available now!

New Book!
FINISH THE RACE! was written to help believers to realize the absolute necessity of growing to maturity in Christ. Many churches are urging Christians to push aside discernment in favor of experience. It is our hope that this book will inspire many believers to fight the good fight, finish the race, and keep the faith (2 Tim. 4:7). Go here for ordering details.
Companion Book!
THE NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION is now available in book form. This is the DVD script plus commentary by Sandy Simpson. The commentary of the DVD series is not in the book, but there are many more quotes available than in the video series.  Good reference material.  Also available on CD-ROM.

LETTERS TO THE CHURCH is a fitting manual for the Revelation Christian. All the precepts are in the seven letters in Revelation 1:9 - 3:22 to help us keep the faith, stay in sound doctrine, and reach out to those who are perishing. I hope and pray that this book will help the reader to be an “overcomer”.
