Dear All,

"Much of our difficulty as seeking Christians stems from our unwillingness to take God as He is and adjust our lives accordingly. We insist upon trying to modify Him and bring Him nearer to our own image." - A. W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God

Outcome-Based Conversion: By Man's Machinations or God's Ministration?
by Larry DeBruyn, 5/4/12Discernment Ministries

In America over the last two centuries, no event has become more associated with the evangelical-fundamentalist movement than the altar call. In evangelistic campaigns, revival crusades, and many church services, the altar call is synonymous with winning souls to Jesus Christ, or calling backslidden believers to repent and return to the Lord.  Read Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3.

TBN: Trouble in Paradise
by Ken Connor, Christian Post, 5/8/12

"Prosperity theology is a false theology. . . . TBN has been a huge embarrassment to evangelical Christianity for decades." R. Albert Mohler Jr., President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  It's a drama fit for reality television: Larger than life characters, familial infighting, private jets, mansions, pink poodles, and of course contentious litigation. Sadly, it's not the Real Housewives of Orange County or the Shahs of Sunset at the center of this drama, but the first family of Trinity Broadcasting Network. Brittany Koper, granddaughter of TBN founders Paul and Janice Crouch, alleges that her grandparents are scamming the public with their prosperity gospel message and using the contributions of their viewers to sustain a lavish lifestyle that would make a hip hop mogul blush. Mama and Papa Crouch counter that granddaughter Brittany is merely attempting to distract attention from her own wrongdoing. They've accused her of misappropriating ministry funds while she served as finance director for the organization.

One Thousand Gifts, A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
by Ann VoskampThink On These Things
Reviewed by Gary Gilley

It is sad and amazing how small errors can lead to catastrophic consequences.  Voskamp begins with a misunderstanding of joy, seeking a childlike experience of happiness (p. 166), even an admiration for a Peter Pan existence (p. 165), twisting sin, salvation and Christian living around the wrong thing (thanksgiving instead of Christ), turning to false teachers (mystics and psychology) to learn the way forward and what you have is a bestseller that will lead its readers away from Christ and biblical Christianity.  I feel compassion for Voskamp.  I believe she truly wants to be right before God, but she is searching for answers in the wrong places.  Additionally, she is making herself a teacher of others and that carries further repercussions (James 3:1).
