Eternal Path

The Eternal Path website, hosted by S.E. Ray, is dedicated to reviewing spiritual movements across the world. This will be an ongoing project requiring the dedication of much research and contributions from spiritually mature and sound writers from various backgrounds. The motivation is to provide revelation unto realization - the unmasking of spiritual fallacies and mystical belief systems. A task few have been moved to achieve because of its sheer magnitude. "Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way." Psalm 119:104  Much of what we see today has been long ago foretold in prophecy as the sign of the end times. A mystical movement that fully deceives and ensnares the undiscerning. A false system of spirituality that is not authored by the Holy Father of creation, but of he who is fallen, who strives for souls to subjugate for eternity. Under the careful supervision of the Holy Spirit, what we share here is from God's eternal counsel, not personal agendas, fabricated beliefs or ecclesiastical heresy hunting.

Emergent Church
A Time Of DepartingA Time Of Departing (Second Edition)

Faith UndoneFaith Undone
by Roger Oakland, Understanding The Times, 8/07
Is the emerging church movement just another passing fad, a more contemporary approach to church, or a bunch of disillusioned young people looking for answers? In fact, it is actually much broader and is influencing Christianity to a significant degree. Grounded in a centuries-old mystical approach, this movement is powerful, yet highly deceptive, and it draws its energy from practices and experiences that are foreign to traditional evangelical Christianity. The path that the emerging church is taking is leading right into the arms of Roman Catholicism and ultimately to an interfaith perspective that has prophetically profound ramifications.

New Apostolic Reformation
New Apostolic Reformation BookThe New Apostolic Reformation
What is it and where is it going?

by Sandy Simpson

The International Coalition of Apostles headed by C. Peter Wagner is the most influential purveyor of the New Apostolic Reformation, a term coined by Wagner. This organization is really an extension of the New Order of the Latter Rain whose influences and mentors include William Branham, Franklin Hall, the Hawtin brothers, and more recently Bill Hamon, Paul Cain and the Kansas City Prophets. The doctrines of the Latter Rain have influenced most of the televangelists on TV today, and so have crept deceptively into many denominations. The main heretical teachings of the New Order Of The Latter Rain, as ruled in 1949 at the General Council of the Assemblies of God held in Seattle, were as follows: (1) The restoration of foundational apostles and prophets in the churches. (2) The teaching and promotion of a transferable impartation or anointings that are passed on "by" the laying on of hands "by" the will of man. (3) Confession and deliverance from sin to men. (4) The impartation of spiritual gifts by the laying on of hands such as the gift of languages for missionary service and other "ministry skills".  (5) The extreme and unscriptural practice of imparting or imposing personal leadings by the means of the gifts of utterance, "word of knowledge" or prophecy. (6) Distortions of scripture interpretations, which are in opposition to teachings and practices generally accepted among the Church.   These doctrines deemed heretical by the Assemblies Of God in 1949, which are now common fare because of the Brownsville 'Revival" and the Third Wave movement, are all being promoted today in the New Apostolic Reformation. This video will expose, by way of video and quotes from written materials by adherents of the ICA, the false apostles, false prophets and false teachers of the New Apostolic Reformation. A number of the individuals mentioned by name in this video claim to be Bible-believing born again evangelicals. But in reality they are teaching and promoting doctrines that are not only dangerous, but tear down many or all of the core doctrines upon which the Christian Faith is built. Many of those we will examine on this video have fairly decent doctrinal statements they endorse, but by what they are teaching and doing they end up denying the basic doctrines of the Church. We want you to know that we do not hate those who teach heresy or those who follow their teachings, but rather admonish you in love if you have been deceived by teachings that deviate from the basic doctrines of the Faith. The reason for this book is the hope it will help many to come back to a complete faith in Christ and come under the authority of the Word.

Idolatry In Their HeartsIdolatry In Their Hearts
by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer

Does having eternity in your heart mean that you know God and are His child? Could Gentile cultures understand the Gospel from the stars? Did God create man's cultures? Has God always been in the process of redeeming cultures from the time of Babel by placing in them a true revelation of Himself? Is there the worship of YHWH in all cultures and religions through the names of "supreme beings"?  Have all cultures always had a way to make things right between them and God? These questions and many more are answered in this book that addresses the false teachings of The New Apostolic Reformation regarding missiological methods as being carried out by many agencies including the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People, YWAM, and many Bible societies.
Church Growth
This Little Church Went To MarketThis Little Church Went to Market
by Gary Gilley   

In an effort to draw sellout crowds, is the modern Church in danger of selling out? This is the question author and pastor Gary E. Gilley addresses in This Little Church Went to Market. He believes that under pressure from secular philosophies and fads, many evangelical churches have subscribed to pragmatic rather than scriptural patterns for ministry. Marketing tactics, demographic analyses and entertainment-oriented worship have taken the new paradigm Church by storm. The result is a Christian community which is rapidly losing its focus and forfeiting its biblical mandate. This Little Church Went to Market is a call for the Church to return to its scriptural roots. This book, now in its second edition, fully updated and revised with additional material is a serious and timely call for churches to return to their Scriptural roots.

This Little Church Stayed HomeThis Little Church Stayed Home
by Gary Gilley   

Many churches, riding the faddish waves of our times, have 'gone to market', but not all. Some churches are trying to 'stay home', that is, remain firmly grounded in the Scriptures. Still, the pressures mount, the temptations are repackaged, and the schemes of the world become more and more persuasive. In This Little Church Stayed Home, Dr. Gilley explores the manifold pressures of conservative churches to sell out to modern trends and innovations, including the present temptation towards mystical theology. Churches toying with 'new measures' will be challenged to remain true to the historic doctrines of the Christian faith and to remain faithful to God's chosen means of converting sinners to himself: the good news of Jesus Christ. Pastors, seminary students, church leaders and Christians who want God's Word to be paramount in their lives will find This Little Church Stayed Home a timely message to a Christian subculture fixated on marketing the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ.

This Little Church Had NoneThis Little Church Had None
by Gary Gilley   

"This book is a skillful analysis and critique of the contemporary evangelical movement and a powerful plea for Christians to recover their love for the truth. It is a desperately needed message for these uncertain times, written with clarity, spiritual wisdom, biblical precision and a passion that reflects the authors' own deep love for the truth." - John MacArthur (from the back cover of This Little Church Had None)
