11 Reasons to Reject the World Christian
Gathering on Indigenous Peoples movement by Sandy Simpson, March
The "Indigenous People" (hereafter IPM) or "First Nations" movement is an unbiblical movement teaching heresies and even doctrines of demons. It is being spread worldwide by YWAM, Don Richardson, author of Eternity In Their Hearts, John Dawson the President of YWAM, Richard Twiss of Wiconi International, Terry LeBlanc of World Vision Canada, Daniel Kikawa of Aloha Ke Akua and many other adherents. This movement has ties to the apostolic leadership of the New Apostolic Reformation and C. Peter Wagner. A number of the announced speakers at their A Call To All Nations conference in Honolulu were also on the Aloha Ke Akua "Advisory Board" including John Dawson, Richard Twiss, Terry LeBlanc and Don Richardson. You can go to their site for more information about these people. One thing you will notice is that people involved with YWAM play a major role in the promotion of this agenda and conferences around the world.
Of Two Kingdoms by Sandy Simpson, 8/27/11
Be careful of those who teach about a "kingdom" that is not the same as what the Bible teaches. 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". Biblical Christians need to understand that many of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Emergent Church, Church Growth, Word of Faith and other related movements are operating under a paradigm shift. Because of that when they use the word "kingdom" they do not have the same biblical concept of that word that biblical Christians do. Whether purposely or under the influence of the Zeitgeist, the "new breed" paradigm shifters use the word "kingdom" in order to lure people into their Dominionist/social gospel worldview. They know that most Christians love to hear about the "kingdom" so they act like they are talking to them in the unity of the Faith. But they are not. This is an old trick of the false teachers and cults. They redefine certain words so that when they talk to biblical Christians they can sound like they are on the same page. For instance, the New Age cult called "Unity" did this years ago with many Christian terms and was able to lure in some people on that basis. Once you lure them in then you slowly brainwash them away from their former understanding of those terms into a new paradigm. The first concept is called Kingdom "Kingdom Now (KN)" and the second we will call "Kingdom Come (KC)". "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (Matt. 6:10). KN claims this prayer is about Kingdom Now. Biblical Christians understand this is referring to the Kingdom being first established in the spirits of born again believers (Col. 1:13) and finally physically established in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ when He returns (1 Cor. 15:24), since the dominion over the earth currently has been temprarily given to the devil (Luke 4:5-8, Eph. 2:2). 1Jo 5:19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.
of Babel and Mars Hill by Sandy Simpson, May 2006
This article is written to expose another false teaching based on a misinterpretation of Scripture, namely the Genesis 11:1-9 account of the tower of Babel. ... There is also nowhere in Paul's discourse on Mars Hill where Paul is guaranteeing that Gentiles knew or would know God.
Christian Bookstores by
Sandy Simpson, 6/10/08
There are many books being sold today in Christian bookstores that are dangerous to your spiritual health. Many here are already familiar with the names of people whose books we should avoid from the Word of Faith camp such as: John Bevere, Juanita Bynum, Morris Cerullo, Kim Clement, Kenneth Copeland, Paul Crouch, Creflo Dollar, Jesse Duplantis, Kenneth Hagin, Marilyn Hickey, Benny Hinn, Rodney Howard-Browne, T.D. Jakes, Bishop Eddie L. Long, Joyce Meyer, Myles Munroe, Steve Munsey, Mike Murdock, Joel Osteen, Rod Parsley, Peter Popoff, Fred Price, R.W. Shambach, Robert Tilton, Paula White, Ed Young and a whole host of others. We know to avoid the books of people who are promoting the New Apostolic Reformation such as C. Peter Wagner, John Dawson, Jack Deere, Francis Frangipane, Ted Haggard, Bill Hamon, Cindy Jacobs, Rick Joyner, George Otis, Jr., Dutch Sheets, Ed Silvoso and many others. I have spoken a number of times on the subject of the First Nations Movement which is tied to the New Apostolic Reformation. We know we need to avoid the materials of those who teach these things like Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa, Terry LeBlanc, YWAM and members of the World Gathering of Indigenous People. There are many other false teachers whose books are being sold in Christian bookstores that we need to avoid. Reinhard Bonnke, Paul Cain, Paul (David)Yonggi Cho, John Hagee, Christian Harfouche, Jack Hayford, David Hogan, Roberts Liardon, Arnold Murray, Pat Robertson, Robert Schuller, Gwen Shaw, Tommy Tenney and many more.
... where do you draw the line? by Sandy Simpson, Deception In
The Church, 1998
This is a short essay to illustrate, with some irony, just how unbiblical, subjective and relativistic Ecumenism really is
- The biggest distributor of false prophecies in cyberspace compiled
by Sandy Simpson, 4/08
This is a sampling of false prophecies by many false prophets that have been distributed by ElijahList. I have been collecting ElijahList newsletters for years. The following are but a tiny fraction of the false prophecies ElijahList has sent out. Prophesy, that is predictive, is to be judged not only on whether or not the prophecy came true, but on how it depicts the character and testimony of God, and whether or not it teaches what the Bible teaches. If a Third Wave prophet happens to, on the very off chance, get a prediction right his prophecy must still be judged as to whether or not it is consistent with the law and the testimony (Is. 8:20). If it is not it is a lying prophecy, not from the Lord, but from either the delusions of his or her own mind (Jer. 14:14) or from evil (Jer. 23:10) which has it's origin from the evil one (Jas. 3:15, 1 Jn. 3:8).
Emerging Church - Introducing Heresies by Sandy Simpson, 4/20/09
To understand the teachings of the Emerging Church or â€Åâ€Åâ€Åâ€śMissional" movement you have to look at what the leadership of the movement promote. The false teachings of the Emerging Church are being done in secret, not necessarily hidden from view, by laying error alongside truth through the method of diaprax or brainwashing. They are also introducing destructive heresies into many churches and denominations today. I will present documented evidence that the leadership of the EC is teaching unbiblical and even heretical teachings that attempt to corrupt one or more of the core doctrines of the Church.
Eschatology (Part of my 5 Core
Doctrines series) compiled and written by Sandy Simpson, 1999
Jesus Christ is coming bodily to earth to rule and judge the earth.
man did what was right in his own eyes" by Sandy Simpson, 1/1/06
The state of Christianity today has returned to the same condition that Israel was in during the time of the judges. This statement in Judges 17:6 and 21:25 is not a positive statement about Israel, but a negative one. This sin of "doing that which was right in (their) own eyes" was what accounted for the sin of Micah in continuing in idol worship. There were no judges in the land to point out this sin or restrain the people from it. The law of God had been forsaken and replaced with subjectivism. This is exactly what we are seeing today in our postmodern, relativist culture. It is to be expected that the world will act like this, but this attitude has also entered and almost overwhelmed Christendom as we know it. Christianity is being remade in the image of imaginations of men (Rom. 1:21). The rules are being set by false teachers, and the Christian masses are quick to follow. Only those who listen to the judges of today, those with Holy Spirit and biblical discernment, will be saved in this age of apostasy.
Warren - "Learn To Love Yourself" by Sandy Simpson, 3/17/05
Is learning to love yourself really what people need to learn? Is this how a Christian should accurately explain the human condition? Is the problem with people that they don't love themselves enough or that they only love themselves? Is loving yourself the answer to your needs in life? After reading Rick Warren's third contract column called "Learn To Love Yourself!" for Ladies Home Journal (LHJ), it struck me that it is a perfect example of why churches should definitely NOT be using his materials. For more information on Rick Warren, his teachings, book reviews and his associations, go here. I am going to give you his entire LHJ article in BLUE, then I will give you my rebuttal article in RED. This LHJ article reveals much about the false teachings of Rick Warren whose mentors are Robert Schuller, C. Peter Wagner, and the other New Age false teachers. I simply request that you compare what Rick Warren is teaching the Christian and non believing women who read LHJ all over the world (mainly non believing!) with what the Bible says we should be teaching and doing. I think this will help you understand where Rick Warren is coming from.
"How-To" Christianity by Sandy Simpson, 8/00, revised 3/04
The apologetics premise I am using, indeed the apologetics premise all true believers in Christ use, is the Word of God, the Scriptures, sola Scriptura. The authority of Scriptures in the life of the believer cannot be superseded by anything else. Not by words of prophecy, not by signs and wonders, not by experience, and certainly not by pragmatic Christian "How To" manuals. Pragmatism is defined as: the doctrine that the meaning of an idea or a proposition lies in its observable practical consequences. One of the underlying beliefs of those who practice pragmatic Christianity is that the end justifies any means to get there. If the means is not getting you to the end, then the means are therefore not working and bad. C. Peter Wagner stated this in a book on Church Growth way back in 1976:
Responsibilities Of A Good Shepherd by Sandy Simpson, 5/20/05
There was a good reason why the illustration of a shepherd with his sheep was used so often in biblical times ... because it was an illustration people could easily identify with in their cultural context. The illustrations we use are most effective when they are understood easily by the culture to which God has sent us to minister. Middle eastern cultures understood what shepherding was all about. It was about feeding the lambs and the sheep, bringing them to good pasture lands and water, grooming and clipping them, delivering new lambs, leading them and teaching them to stay together, going off after the wandering lost ones, and protecting the sheep in the field and in the fold. We are all under shepherds and Jesus Christ is the Good Shepherd. We need to emulate what the Good Shepherd does for the sheep.

The current fad of interfaith solidarity and unity is simply a thin guise of inclusivism, Universalism and pluralism.
