Four Books That the Enemy Has Used To Corrupt
Christianity by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
The four books that have changed the church by giving
an introduction to the false teachings of the New Apostolic/Latter Rain
(NAR), the Emerging Church/Contemplative/Catholic Mysticism (EC), pragmatic
Church Growth (CG) methodologies of C. Peter Wagner, Robert Schuller and
Peter Drucker, and the teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous
People (WCGIP) are as follows:
Surprised by the Power of the Spirit by Jack Deer, Celebration
of Discipline by Richard Foster, Purpose Driven Church by Rick Warren &
Etnerity In Their Hearts by Don Richardson.
These four books were widely read by Christians
from virtually every denominational background before their ramifications
and the movements they would spawn were known. They lay error alongside
truth so were considered not to be a threat to churches. Therefore
these books then became part of the consciousness of many Christians and
churches, thereby laying the basis for the introduction of the modern day
false teachings of the NAR, EC, CG and WCGIP that have become part of the
landscape of Christendom today.
Night Marchers and UFOs on the Big Island by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
With the resurgence of the old religion of Hawaii and
the continual invocation of Pelé and other "deities" for years in
the secular culture and even in churches with regards to worshipping 'Io,
is it any wonder that those beings are beginning to manifest again?
In a story called "Night
Marchers" on the Kawaihae site and in a YouTube
video on the same subject, eyewitnesses claim all kinds of sightings
that they think are the warriors, ancestors and demi-gods of Hawaii coming
back. Interestingly the
first book the Hawaiian Heritage site recommends in its "Suggested
Reading" list is "Perpetuated
in Righteousness" by Daniel Kikawa that we reviewed in our book "Idolatry
In Their Hearts" by Sandy Simpson and Mike Oppenheimer. Since Kikawa
claims that 'Io is the True God and one that the Hawaiians worshipped in
secret, we have to wonder if Kikawa also thinks 'Io is showing up in these
night marches? Since YWAM, Aloha Ke Akua and Hilo New Hope participated
in worshipping 'Io at the "edge of Hale-ma'uma'u Crater" it sounds like
they have all been inviting the old "gods" to return to Hawaii.
"They Will Believe The Lie" by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
I am doing a Bible study right now on what I would call
"renewing our minds". It is based on this verse:
Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able
to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect
The only way to renew our minds is to believe on the Lord
Jesus Christ, confess our sins, and be saved, then to study the written
Word and allow the indwelling Holy Spirit to teach us. Our minds
are corrupted by virtue of the sin nature and what we have learned in life
because our filters are off. I gave an illustration of straining coconut
to make coconut milk. If you use a 1 inch screen everything will
pass through. Even if you use a quarter inch screen you will get
mostly coconut meat in your milk. You have to use a fine screen in
order to separate the milk from the leftover. Our filters are off
and the first thing God begins to do is correct our worldview, because
if your worldview is off you will not understand God's reality. We
need to learn to see things from His perspective. This is why I started
this study by going back to an original problem.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one
will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays
of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the
ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because
they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends
them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so
that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted
This has always been an interesting passage to me for
a few different reasons. What is "the lie" that is talked about here
in verse 9 and 11? What are the ways that "wickedness deceives those
who are perishing" and how long has this been going on or does this only
begin to happen at the coming of the lawless one? In what way does
"the lie" cause those who do not believe the truth to "delight in wickedness"?
Updated! The First Nations Movement Deceiving The Nations! 4-DVD Series Critical Missiological Issue!
The "Indigenous People's" (IPM) or "First Nations" movement
is an unbiblical movement teaching heresies and doctrines of demons. It
is being spread worldwide by YWAM, Don Richardson, John Dawson, Richard
Twiss, Terry LeBlanc, Daniel Kikawa and many other adherents. The
IPM or World Christian Gathering On Indigenous People is full of the false
teachings of the Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Word-Faith,
Dominionism, Latter Rain and many other false theological systems.
But it does have it's own distinctives that are driven by the works of
Daniel Kikawa, Richard Twiss, and Don Richardson in particular. They
are teaching Christians to "redeem" their cultures by worshipping their
former gods, pretending they are YHWH.

Scriptura by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this article: "Christians"
Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura
There are a number of the leadership of the Emerging
Church (EC) who do not believe that the Bible is the highest authority
for the Christian faith. Most do not believe that the Bible is inerrant
in the original manuscripts and many do not acknowledge that the Bible
is our highest revelation. Yet this is a core doctrine over which
true believers and false brethren must separate. Those who try to poke
holes in Sola Scriptura make excuses like (1) we need to reinterpret the
Bible through the lens of postmodern culture and religion (2) the Bible
never uses the words "Sola Scriptura" therefore it is not a Biblical concept
(3) there is new revelation for the church through the Holy Spirit apart
from what is written and the precepts of the Bible and (4) the Bible just
doesn't address our postmodern situation therefore we cannot rely on it
for the truth and answers for our problems today. I will prove that
all the above arguments, and more, from EC leaders and others is exactly
what they are teaching. I will give you quotes from their teachings,
videos and books. The postmodern church and its "movements" are abandoning
Sola Scriptura in their rush to be like the Roman Catholic Church, which
takes its authority from a mix of Scripture and tradition.
"As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and
interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, "does not derive her certainty
about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture
and Tradition must be accepted and honored with EQUAL sentiments of devotion
and reverence." (Roman Catholic Catechism, Given October 11, 1992, the
thirtieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council,
in the fourteenth year of my Pontificate. Page 31).

Updated DVD! The Question Of Dominion by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this article: The
Question Of Dominion.
I am writing this article as an apologetic against
the Third Wave, Latter Rain, Word of Faith and Reformed Theology teachings
that the Church is to rise up and take over the systems of government,
businesses and every other aspect of life. "See, the problem is, is that
Satan has had too much of his way in our society because he has a government!
And the only way to overthrow a government is with a government.
It won't happen otherwise. So therefore the government of the church
has to get into place in the extended church just like we do have it very
well in place, we haven't reached our goal yet ..." (Transcript of
C. Peter Wagner, Arise Prophetic Conference, Gateway Church, San Jose,
CA, 10-10-2004) Wagner has substituted the "government of the church" for
the coming government of Jesus Christ in the Millennial Kingdom.
Wagner is "Kingdom Now" while the Bible teaches "Kingdom Come". What I
wanted to do with this article is put the issue of dominion to rest by
studying the definition the Bible gives to dominion and ruling authority.
When we look at the subject we can easily ascertain what is going on today
and what God requires of the Church.

Shepherd Or Hireling? by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on the article: "Shepherd
The Bible lays out the definitions of both an overseer
(under shepherd) and a hireling. John 10:11-13 I am the good
shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that
is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth
the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth
them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling,
and careth not for the sheep. (KJV) 1 Tim. 3:1-3 Here
is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer,
he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband
of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able
to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome,
not a lover of money. (NIV) Titus 1:7-13 Since an overseer
is entrusted with God's work, he must be blameless, not overbearing, not
quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest
gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is
self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. He must hold firmly to
the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage
others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it. For there are
many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers, especially those of
the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are ruining
whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach - and that
for the sake of dishonest gain. Even one of their own prophets has said,
"Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons." This testimony
is true. Therefore, rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in
the faith. (NIV) A hireling does not really care about being a watchman,
but is more concerned with protecting his reputation, position and income.
A true watchman will guard the flock against wolves from within (Acts 20:30)
and without (Acts 20:29) no matter the cost to his reputation, position
or income. Following is a little quiz you can take to see if you are a
true Biblical under shepherd as a leader in your church, are becoming a
hireling, or are one now.

Too many churches today are allowing music to be used
in their services that is not glorifying to the Lord and can actually be
a hindrance to the teaching of sound doctrine. Pastors and leaders should
be using their leadership role to test what is being played and sung in
their churches. Though some are quick to test preaching and teaching from
their pulpits, many ignore the music being used in the same services. This
is a tragic mistake. Music is a powerful medium. It is something that effects
deeply the body, mind and emotions. It is a proven fact that music often
stays with a person far longer than what is taught or preached. Songs roam
around in our heads, especially if the melody appeals to us. What is often
overlooked is the serious impression music makes on people, and the teaching
they are getting over and over again as they allow the song to repeat in
their minds and on their lips. Music teaches things much more subtly yet
sometimes far more effectively. That's why the lyrical content of music
in the church, as well as its effect on the spiritual lives of those who
perform and listen, should be vigorously examined by the leaders of the
church. This is a 2-DVD set.

2 Cor. 13:5 Examine yourselves to see whether
you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you - unless,
of course, you fail the test?
People who call themselves followers of Christ or "Christians"
and claim they are born again must believe certain things. If they
do not then they fail the test of faith. They can claim they are
born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail
the test of faith there is no eternal security. Only God knows who
will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and
omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2). God did not make an arbitrary
judgment about who would be saved and who would not. His Spirit is
given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would
choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ. We are not
God and we do not have His omniscience. Therefore, according to Paul,
we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have
been opened to the Truth. I am not saying we do not have assurance
of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement
and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is
always the Biblical criteria. Those who would be Bible teachers must teach
according to the whole counsel of God's Word. Let me be clear. There
is only one way to salvation. That is by grace alone through
faith alone in Christ alone. I will deal with a few of those issues
following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just
a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply
giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.

"Blasphemizing" The Bible by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
I am going to go over an article I wrote back in 2006
in preparation for the book I wrote with Mike Oppenheimer called 'Idolatry
in Their Hearts'. This book is an apologetic against the false teachings
of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People movement, the Emerging
Church and the New Apostolic Reformation which got their ideas from the
book "Eternity in Their Hearts" by Don Richardson. At the time that
book came out no one really saw the dangerous ideas Richardson was promoting.
All they would have had to do was look at the two subtitles of that book
to understand the implications. The first subtitle in the 1981 edition
read: The Untold Story of Christianity among Folk Religions of Ancient
People. Those who read this book found some interesting cross-cultural
ideas but apparently missed the false premise of the book starting with
the subtitle. How could Christianity be "among folk religions" where the
Gospel had not been preached (Rom. 10:14-15)? At that time Christians who
read the book were apparently satisfied that, though there was some questionable
material present, it made for an interesting discussion on how to do cross-cultural
ministry. The subtitle it has today, which was first published in 1984,
is as follows: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds
of Cultures Throughout the World. This should have been a red flag
for many Christians but then, who reads subtitles? But how could
the "One True God" be known to Gentiles who did "not know God".

Resources For Pastors including "Good English Bible Translations" by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
I was talking with a pastor after a Wednesday night service
and he mentioned that I said I had done an article comparing English Bible
translations. He called me up later and asked me to come back and
present the contents of that article I sent out in about 2002 to my mailing
list for the Pacific Waves Newsletter which, unfortunately, I can no longer
afford to publish and mail. However an archive of past issues of
that newsletter can be found here.
In that article I detailed a number of good and bad resources for pastors
including Bible translations, concordances, commentaries, Bible dictionaries,
etc. I present an edited version of part of that article on this
DVD, particularly dealing with English Translations of the Bible.
Translation is a very detailed endeavor and should only be undertaken by
those with a proper education in that subject and a sound doctrinal background.
I read a few books on that subject and it helped me understand the complexities
involved. Hebrew is a rich language so it is hard to distill one
Hebrew word down to one English word. Greek is a very technical language
and it is also not easy to translate. This is why it is imperative
to use the good English translations out there for comparison along with
a good concordance and Bible dictionary.

A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS Kingdom Now or Kingdom Come? by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today.
Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is
being promoted all over the place. I am warning Christians that they
need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have
been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have
been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom".

From Church To Emerging Church DVD Series by Sandy Simpson The issue of the Emerging Church and it's introduction
into many churches and mission organizations has reached a critical point.
Many do not undersand what is being leavened into churches by the EC leadership.
Many would be shocked to know their belief systems involve Universalism,
New Age, defense of postmodernism, Interfaithism, and many other false
doctrines. In order to reach out to this generation the EC leadership
is proposing a whole new "map" to deal with what they perceive is a lack
of understanding on the part of the churches on how to communicate.
EC proponants believe the "scripture" for today is evolving and must change
in order to reach postmoderns.

Idolatry In Their Hearts Landmark Book! 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.

it and where is it going? Every Pastor Needs This! by Bill Randles, Arnold
Fruchtenbaum, Jacob Prasch, Mike Oppenheimer, Orrel Steinkamp, Gary Gilley,

Lessons In Forgiveness Great Study! by Sandy Simpson Through the years I have been
presented with many opportunities to forgive. Sometimes the situation was
so severe that it took me some time to forgive and start the process of
healing for myself, and eventually for others. I learned that a Christian
needs to forgive other people even if they have not repented of their sins.
That can be really hard if we let it be hard. But if we give our burdens
over to the Lord, He will carry them and that frees us up to treat other
people with love, compassion, and be in the right frame of mind and heart
to set them up for reconciliation with Jesus Christ. That does not mean
we tolerate their sin. We simply forgive them for what they have done to
us, whether perceived or real, and move on to looking for ways to redeem
them. We can then present to them the "truth in love" even when we have
to rebuke them.
by Sandy Simpson 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).
The New Apostolic Reformation - What is
it and where is it going? Companion Book! by Sandy Simpson 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 Timely! by Sandy Simpson 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".

Simpson Messages on CD & DVD
NEW! Replacement Theology On Steroids by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
So, as you can see, the root of this teaching is that
Israel no longer holds the distinction of being the tree from which the
Root of David (Jesus-Rev. 5:5, 22:16) came. They are no longer the
â€Å“natural branches" (Israel-Rom. 11:21) on to which
Gentile Christianity (the wild shoots-Rom. 11:17 or wild branches-Rom.
11:24) are grafted in (Rom. 11:17-24). According to Replacement Theology,
Christianity has now become its own branch apart from Israel (the natural
branch) that produced the Root and all the promises of the Bible to Israel
have been taken away from them and given to the Gentile Church. This
is why you hear so many false teachers taking verses out of context from
the Old Testament and willy-nilly applying them to the Gentile Church.
This methodology has been going on for decades in liberal churches and
has been popularized by many false teachers on TV. But the fact is that
Replacement Theology is utter false doctrine. It denies promises
made to Israel, some of which have already been fulfilled and some which
are yet to come to fruition. But when you add the fact that the Inclusivist
WCGIP proponents are now saying that God planted hundreds of different
trees, cultures all over the world, that are not connected to the natural
branch, tree and Root, you have what can only be termed Replacement Theology

Who Do Not Lead Christians to Maturity by Sandy Simpson This DVD is a message based on this
The Scriptural definition of maturity is to learn to discern
truth from error so that the Christian will no longer be double minded,
blown about by every wind of teaching and by the schemes of crafty people.
But the problem today is that so few Christian teachers are feeding their
flock's solid food. They are serving up milk and, because of that,
people are starving. Yet they often don't even know they have been on a
starvation diet. Amos 8:11 "The days are coming," declares the
Sovereign Lord, "when I will send a famine through the land - not
a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words
of the Lord."

and all liars" by Sandy Simpson
Lying is a problem for all people (Ps. 116:11).
We are all sinners (Rom. 3:23). Those of us who are Christians are
"sinners saved by grace" (Eph. 2:8) indwelt by the Holy Spirit in our "new
self" (Col. 3:10). But we still live in our "old self" which we must "put
off" (Eph. 4:20-25) by taking up our cross daily and following Christ (Luke
9:23). The difference between unbelievers and those who are truly
born again is that believers no longer "practice sin" (1 John 3:9, see
my Bible study on 1 John!) They have the indwelling Holy Spirit (Rom.
8:11) who convicts them when they lie (John 16:8). True believers then
repent (1 John 1:9) and go on to "practice righteousness" (1 John 2:29)
with the Lord's help. The unregenerate, the false brothers, or those
who have fallen away (Gal. 5:4, Mark 4:17), practice lying. They
practice a lifestyle of lying because their consciences are seared (1 Tim.
4:2) and the Holy Spirit, when convicting them, cannot break through the
hardness of their unrepentant hearts (Eph. 4:17-19, Heb. 3:13).

43 - November 2011, Sandy Simpson: The New Apostolic Reformation "For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising
themselves as apostles of Christ." 2Corinthians 11:13 Sandy Simpson, of
the Apologetics Coordination Team, joins me to discuss the New Apostolic
Reformation (NAR). Sandy runs Deception in the Church, an extensive library
of resources on the NAR and related movements and organizations. Sandy
does a fantastic job of describing in just an hour a movement that really
needs many hours to really understand properly. It is my hope that this
episode will inspire people to dig deeper to learn more about the New Apostolic
Reformation and the unbiblical practices that go on within the movement.
Please check out the show notes and visit the additional resources section.
The New Apostolic Reformation is a dangerous movement that is carrying
many Christians away from orthodox, Biblical practices. This episode is
available to stream or download here. Listen! Episode
55: November 2012, Sandy Simpson: The New Apostolic Reformation - Part
2 "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but
inwardly are kravenous wolves." - Matthew 7:15 A year ago,
the November 2011 episode, I interviewed Sandy Simpson on the New Apostolic
Reformation. Sandy heads up the Apologetics
Coordination Team, and runs Deception
in the Church, an extensive library of resources on the NAR and related
movements and organizations. This episode is a follow-up to our previous
discussion. We began with the assumption that those listening have heard
the first discussion we had. If you haven't, that episode can be found
here. We answer some questions people had from that episode, get into some
further examination of the New Apostolic Reformation, and try to keep from
repeating what was already covered as much as possible.

I am your Purpose. I am your Hope. I am your Heart. God is within
you and all around you. My name is Oneness. I shall place before you all
the purpose of God. My Plan is God's Plan. Nothing will happen by chance.
Take part in a Great Plan which is changing the world. My Coming brings
peace. - Maitreya the "Christ" Messages from Maitreya the Christ, 1992 8/12/14 - Is
TB Joshua's anointed water the solution to the Ebola crisis? by
TB Joshua Watch, 8/12/14
On the 2nd August 2014, TB Joshua announces to his congregation
that he had just finished a meeting with a large delegations of officials
from the government and NGO's such as UNICEF discussing various issues,
including the Ebola crisis. The delegation formally handed him a letter,
the contents of which he didn't disclose. The way he described this meeting
led his delighted flock to believe that the officials had come to seek
the counsel of their "man of Godâ". Though the contents of the official
letter was never disclosed, it seems very likely that it announced the
tough measures being taken against any faith healers claiming to be able
to heal Ebola. The Washington post have reported that any pastor or healer
claiming to be able to heal the virus will face jail time. 8/18/14 - Mark Driscoll
Kicked Out Of His Own Organization by Sandy Simpson, 8/18/14
Driscoll was kicked out of the Acts 29 Network church planting group,
his own organization, for his "ungodly behavior". "Seattle megachurch
pastor Mark Driscoll has been removed from a church-planting network of
more than 500 churches he helped found after a pattern of "ungodly and
disqualifying behavior." (Religion News Service, by Sarah Pulliam Balley,
Huffington Post, 8/9/14) His behavior is not the only problem with
this guy. Check out his false teachings and behavior over the years. 9/17/14 - Building

8/14/14 - "He
was a murderer from the beginning" by Sandy Simpson, 8/14/14
John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want
to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning,
not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he
speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Revelation
21:8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers,
the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and
all liars - they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur.
This is the second death. Revelation 22:15 Outside are the dogs,
those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the
idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. 9/5/14 -"His Name, the
only Name" by Sandy Simpson, 9/5/14
Zechariah 14:9 "The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that
day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name." What are the implications
of this prophecy in Zechariah? (1) That before the return of Christ
there have always been many "gods" worshipped in many names. (2)
That the saints who return with Christ (Zechariah 14:5), those who were
Raptured, are the ones who had already believed in the name of the Lord
Jesus Christ. Those remaining are forced to acknowledge that there
is "no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved"
because they were left behind in the Rapture and survived the Tribulation. 9/12/14 -The

Check It Out! You can
now look at a list of authors linked from the DITC site. This list
represents the best articles available to Christians regarding issues having
to do with the Third Wave/New Apostolic Reformation and its influence on
Christendom. ACT does not endorse everything written by these authors,
but the articles on the DITC site represent sound biblical apologetics
and every one of these authors are teaching, both explicitly and implicitly,
the core doctrines of the Faith. They are all good resources for
information on what is happening in the churches today, and so their contact
information is presented for your edification. We hope this will
help those who oppose the truth realize just how many biblical Christian
authors, missionaries, pastors, teachers, professors, and thousands of
others OPPOSE the heresy being taught in the Third Wave movement today.
We also hope that those who still love the truth will use the vast resources
available via this page to study to show themselves approved workmen for
the Lord Jesus Christ. That means, pick up your Bible, dig deep into
the Word of God, and find out what is being taught and done in opposition
to those truths and who is doing it. Be a Berean (Acts 17:11)!
