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.

Landmark Book!

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.

Great Study!

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.

Articles on the doctrines of the Third Wave. 

(1) Kingdom Theology by Albert James Dager , 1992
"This article from Albert James Dager's 1986 Media Spotlight looks at Kingdom Theology. Although this report is 10 years old, it could have been written yesterday as it relates to what is being taught in the Toronto "Blessing" movement today." Many of the leaders of the Toronto/Brownsville movement and related "ministries" subscribe to the doctrines of this group. The cursing of other Christians and groups that disagree with them is all part of the doctrines of this group. There are six sections to this paper. The last article contains a list of those who are on the board and the trustees of International Charismatic Bible Ministries (ICBM), one of the main organizations that is preaching this doctrine.

(2) Coming In Out Of The "Latter Rain": A Biblical Critique Part II by Thomas Ice, 1990
"... I think this movement is extremely dangerous theologically and is restoring the ancient heresy and practices of gnosticism, not true Christianity. This is paving the way for the widespread acceptance of false doctrine and the false signs, wonders, and miracles which will be a trademark of antichrist during the coming tribulation."

(3) Ten Reasons To Reject Kingdom/Dominion Teachings by Cross + Word, 1996
"Kingdom-Dominion, or 'Restoration' theology has risen to popular acceptance in the last thirty years or so, gaining confidence and strength with time and developing its doctrine as it progressed. It is now, in the U.K. at least, the most powerful and influential movement in the Church, and attracts many of the keenest born-again Christians to its teachings and pursuits. The majority of charismatic Christians have been influenced in one way and another by Restoration teachings. There are many streams within the Restoration Movement in the UK, but their teachings are broadly similar and will be considered here as one entity Restoration theology is an integral part of the majority of 'shepherding' (discipling) fellowships and house churches. It is also present in many mainstream Church denominations. However, there are serious doubts about its validity as a truly scriptural theology. The fact of its popularity is no proof of its authenticity - the truth is not always popular, and truly biblical Christianity has always been a minority religion."

(4) Are Christians Supposed To Take Dominion? by Robert M. Bowman, Jr., 1988
"... Are Christians supposed to be taking dominion at all? Granted that there is some confusion among American Christians as to what taking dominion would mean, is there a sense in which this really is the mission of the church? A careful reading of the Bible indicates otherwise. Simply put, the Bible never commands Christians to take dominion. A search for such a mandate proves fruitless. The Bible never even hints that this is to be a responsibility of the church between Christ's first and second comings. ."

(5) The Faulty Foundation of the Five-Fold Ministry by Robert M. Bowman, Jr., 1987
"It has recently become popular to speak of "the five-fold ministry," a system of church government with apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. The neo-Pentecostal "Restoration" movement and its offshoot, "kingdom now" teaching, claims that one of the things which God is "restoring" to the church is this five-fold ministry. The sole prooftext used to support this concept is Ephesians 4:11-13, which states that Christ gave "some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers,...until we all attain to the unity of the faith and the full knowledge of the Son of God."

(6) A Critique of "Kingdom Theology" By Earl Paulk by Robert M. Bowman, Jr., with Craig S. Hawkins and Dan R. Schlesinger, 1988
"Those Christians (and there are evidently many such) who are members of churches teaching Kingdom Theology need to be warned of its true nature and encouraged to leave, despite Paulk's warnings that they may suffer hell if they do leave.[55] Those persons who choose to remain in fellowship with these heretics will, even if saved, have to be regarded by orthodox Christians as having broken fellowship with God's people. The orthodox gospel of reconciliation with God and His rule through Christ simply cannot be sacrificed or even compromised for Earl Paulk's pseudogospel of the Kingdom."

(7) Christian Reconstruction by Paul Thibodeau, 1997
Christian Reconstructionism and Dominion Theology go hand in hand. Many if not most of the Third Wave leaders of the "counterfeit" revival teach these views, which are unscriptural. Check out other articles at this site for a detailed overview of these doctrines. "The goal (of Christian Reconstructionism) is the developed Kingdom of God, the New Jerusalem, a world order under God's law."

(8) Restoration "The Latter Rain Movement" by Rev. Robert S. Liichow, 1997
"After the Assemblies of God denounced this movement and excommunicated some ministers it died down as a movement per se. Yet its heretical teachings were never abandoned and they took root in the Charismatic Renewal Movement of 1967, the Discipleship/Shepherding Movement, and all of the other alleged moves of the Holy Spirit, up to and including the Holy Laughter Movement in Toronto which has some of the original N. Battleford people involved in it." And now, apparently, the A/G is subscribing to these doctrines again through influence of the Toronto "Blessing" through the Pensacola "Outpouring".

(9) The New Thing by Cross + Word, 1997
(1) Part One - The Gnostic Key - "Maybe you wondered where all the talk of global revival comes from and why it's deemed so important these days? This article is designed to help you see that "revival" is the so-called "new thing" that sparked many if not all of the Latter-Rain style doctrines from way back. Maybe you have also been thinking there must be some root of heresy behind the Toronto Blessing? You are right. Studies of such works as Rick Joyner's "Final Quest" show clearly its Gnostic origins. But there's more - much more. You will be fascinated by all that you learn in this new series of articles by Cross + Word."
(2) Part Two - The Latter Rain Roots Of The Current Revival - "This second article in the "New Thing" series lays bare the foundations of false revivalism, both historically and today. It shows, with many quotes from the leaders, how "restoration" doctrines are nearly identical to the old Latter Rain heresies."  NOTE: This series is now available in .pdf format.  Also see the summary page for this series which now has more sections.

(10) Influence Links Of The Third Wave Movement by Deception In The Church, 1997
This is a comprehensive look at the roots, branches and fruit of the Third Wave movement. It traces the heretical doctrines all the way back to gnosticism and mystical eastern religions to churches, individuals and movements within what is termed the "Third Wave" or "counterfeit revival" movement. This is a work in process, bringing together quotes and information from a wide array of sources. Hopefully this will give the reader a clearer picture of what the doctrines are that are driving the Third Wave. It is a large document, so you will have to wait for it to load!

(11) Unbiblical Doctrines, Teachings and Phenomena of the Third Wave Counterfeit Revival Movement by Deception In The Church, 1997
A document compiled from a few sources to give Christians a resource to cut through the issues involved in the "counterfeit" revival. This paper includes a short list of heretical teachings observed and documented in the Toronto "Blessing"/Pensocola "Outpouring" movement from a previous article called "A Different Gospel?" by Sandy Simpson. Please refer to the document called "Geneology Of The Third Wave Movement" for a more comprehensive list of the heretical doctrines of the Third Wave. This paper also features guiding priciples on how to deal with the "counterfeit" revival and whether or not we are to test and judge as Christians, and pracitcal guidelines on how to counsel people who have had emotional, physical and spiritual damage from this movement or have been demonized as a result of being "slain in the spirit" or the "laying on of hands".

(12) "Strange Fire: The Rise of Gnosticism in the Church" by Travers and Jewel van der Merwe, 1995
Strange Fire is a brief, easy-to-understand book that explains how to tell the Truth from the Lie. It doesn't dwell on the spectacular manifestations, but concisely illustrates modern Gnosticism. The real gold of the Gospel is presented in such a way that it outshines the fool's gold of Gnosticism. Readers will have no doubt as to which is which. This handy tool enables even the unlearned to discern Gnosticism the next time they encounter it. This is one little book that may save many a soul from walking into the error and falsehood so prevalent in our time.

(13) The Strange History Of Pentecostalism by Way of Life Literature's Fundamental Baptist Information Service, 1998
Though we must be careful not to label all Pentecostals as following heretical doctrines, nonetheless many, if not the majority of today's Pentecostals and charismatics have jumped into the Third Wave.  They subscribe to doctrines that are built on recurring lies and deception.  The Bible says:  "Mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which you have learned, and avoid them" (Romans 16:17)  This article does a good job of detailing the histories of many Pentecostal founders and leaders who taught false doctrine and promoted unbiblical practices such as: JOHN ALEXANDER DOWIE, MARIA BEULAH WOODWORTH-ETTER, CHARLES PARHAM , FRANK SANDFORD, WILLIAM BRANHAM, FRANKLIN HALL, KATHRYN KUHLMAN, AIMEE SEMPLE MCPHERSON, A.J. TOMLINSON, A.A. ALLEN, JACK COE, CHARLES PRICE, DAVID DUPLESSIS, SMITH WIGGLESWORTH, KENNETH HAGIN, SR., ORAL ROBERTS, MORRIS CERULLO, JOHN WIMBER, CHARLES AND FRANCES HUNTER, JAMIE BUCKINGHAM, LAUGHING REVIVAL & BROWNSVILLE.  We do not agree with everything on the Way Of Life Literature web site. Many Fundamental Baptists tend toward elitism, seperatism, and KJV-Only which we view as unbiblical and needlessly divisive.  But there are a lot of good articles on this site, and we wholeheartedly agree with their firm stance on the absolute authoirty of God's Word.

(14) Toronto "Blessing"/Holy Laughter Doctrines by Tom Smith, 1998
Three charts outlining the doctrines of the Third Wave versus Scripture. Chart 1 & Chart 2 compare doctrines to the Bible.  Chart 3 details reported "manifestations" of the Third Wave.

(15) Encyclopedia Of Pentecostal (Third Wave) Ministries And Preachers by The Interactive Bible, 1998
A compendium of false teacher and prophets, including some audio and video clips.

(16) Modern Heresy Timelineby Inner City Discernment Ministry, 1998
A timeline and lineage of the current Third Wave heresies.

(17) Replacement Theology by Anonymous, 1989
"There is a lot of confusion going around these days about God's promises, even among our own ranks here at (unnamed organization). I'd like to take this opportunity to dispel a little of the confusion."

(18) Tracing The Trail Of The "Revival" by Mike Oppenheimer, 1999
"So how can we know what God is doing? There is a simple solution to this answer, he will never contradict what he has already done."

(19) The Latter Rain by Jewel van der Merwe, 1998
"Could it be possible that God is indeed doing a "new thing", as we draw closer to the end of the 20th Century? Is it true that He has reserved special "gifts" for this time in history? Is He speaking to the church in a new way today that transcends anything that He has said in time past?"

(20) Latter Rain Teachings by Jewel van der Merwe, 1998
"When we depart from the Word of God, we enter into the realm of  man’s wisdom - how he feels. Self becomes the guide or the "inner witness" becomes the compass."

(21) The Gospel According To Oneness Pentecosalism by Mike Barden, 1998
Though Oneness Pentecostalism, which includes the United Pentecostal Church (UPC) denominiation among others, has not directly exported some of it's heretical doctrines such as "Jesus only" and baptismal regeneration to the Third Wave, it's origins with false teachers such as William Branham are worth studying because Branham is one of the fathers of the current counterfeit revival movements.  That the Third Wave has also totally infiltrated Oneness Pentecostal churches is further evidence that not only they are cultic, but so is the Third Wave.

(22) Heresies: Then And Now by Jason Barker, The Watchman Expositor, Vol. 16, No. 1, 1999 
"In 2 Peter 2:1–2, the apostle states, “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.”  The apostle accurately observed the spread of heresy in the first–century church, and his warning that false teachers would continue to arise can easily be seen in the growth of cults and pseudo–Christian religions in our time. Interestingly, the heresies that are popular today are simply variations of the same heresies that have arisen throughout the history of the Church. This article will briefly examine some of the most influential of these heresies, will list scriptures that refute the heresy, and will list some of the modern groups that continue to promote the heresies."

(23) Kingdom Triumphalism by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason, 7/00
"In this new wave today's denominations are being enticed to come under the leadership of the new apostles and  prophets for the church to enter this dominion stage."

(1) The Third Wave
(2) Who has all the authority?
(3) The cleansing for the Kingdom
(4) Spiritual war-Joels army marches today

(24) The Doctrine Of Deification by Neil Rivalland, 2000
"The Word of Faith/Positive Confession and Dominion theology adopt teachings which are distinctly similar to the metaphysical cults such as: New Thought, Christian Science, Unity School of Christianity, Mind Science, and Religious Science. The doctrine of deification was taught in the church by E.W. Kenyon who believed one is able to reach godhood. Kenyon has taught that man is a little god "in God's class" and therefore can use the same faith-force that God does."

(25) Information On Dominionism, Restorationism and the Sheherding Movement by Cross + Word
A section of the Cross+Word site dealing with the doctrines of Dominionists, Restorationists and the Shepherding movement.

(26) The Latter Rain Confusion by Joseph Chambers, PawCreek Ministries, 7/01
"Like many wonderful Bible truths, the New Testament Scriptures must be harmonized with the First Testament
Scriptures.  When the idea of a Latter Rain is interpreted only by the New Testament text, then truth suffers.  Deceptive teachings about the Latter Rain have surfaced over and over during the past one hundred years.  The different proponents of a Church Age Latter Rain fulfillment have sought to hijack the Pentecostal revival during this entire past century.  Some of the greatest havoc that has befallen the church world during this period (100 years) has had roots in Latter Rain ideas."

(27) Oneness Doctrine" (Jesus Only) vs. Trinitarianism by Ed Tarkowski, 8/01
Seven part series on "Jesus-only" Oneness doctrines that have invaded the church, especially via the Third Wave counterfeit revival movement. "The Oneness Doctrine appears to be biblical because only Scripture is used, though wrongfully, to support its tenets, declaring that Jesus is not only the Son but also the Father and the Holy Spirit, that is, he is the only person in the Godhead. But, it is a fairly new movement (1913), built on heresies of the past."

(28) "Anointing Or Apostasy" - The Latter Rain Legacy by Charles S. Graves
"This well-researched book on revival, latter-rain and other linked deceptions, is offered in PDF format (readable by Adobe Acrobat Reader which is present on most hard drives already). It covers much of the same ground as other articles on the Banner site, but presents it in a coherent and readable whole. Very useful reference material!"

(29) Dominion Theology by Gary E. Gilley, Pastor-teacher of Southern View Chapel, Volume 2, Issue 3, January 1996
"There is a movement about that is casting a long shadow for its size. It is known by different handles such as reconstructionism, kingdom theology, theonomy, and dominion theology, and it is a curious blend of Reformed/Calvinist theology and Charismatic influence. "

(32) Open Theism by Gary E. Gilley, Pastor-teacher of Southern View Chapel, Volume 8, Issue 3 April/May 2002 (.pdf format)
"Open theism (also known as free-will theism, open theology and openness of God) was, until recently, a little-known stirring on the fringes of the evangelical camp. In 1980, few noticed and fewer cared about perennial rebel Clark Pinnock and his friends, who claimed they had discovered the "true" biblical understanding of God. But more recently their views have both matured and emerged into the mainstream of Christian thought through the writings of among others, Pinnock, Gregory A. Boyd, professor of theology at Bethel College (Baptist General Conference) and Professor John Sanders. More lethal is the fact that this new concept of God is sneaking in through the backdoor of the camp by means of popular writers such as Phil Yancey, and the influence of men like Gilbert Bilezikian, who, as the resident theologian of the Willow Creek Community Church, wields tremendous power over the minds of many
modern church leaders. Others in line with Yancey and Bilezikian include devotional/mystical writer Richard Foster and theologian Donald Bloesch. The particular danger of this latter group is that they may seldom, if ever, admit to holding open theistic convictions but espouse those views in attractive formats (e.g. Yancey’s popular book,Disappointment with God). Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 in .pdf file format.

(33) The Third Wave "New Apostolic Reformation" - Heretical doctrines and ideas that have fused together 
to form the teachings of the movement by Sandy Simpson, 10/02
"If there is anything I want you to come away with from this article is to know who the false teachers are so that you can stay away from them and help others to avoid them as well.  My general advice is to turn off TBN, get into the Word of God daily, get down on your knees and pray for people in your sphere of influence who may be falling into the Third Wave, and reach out to them to pull them from the fire.  Stand firm in the Faith and don't allow false heresies from the past and present leaven your faith away from a pure and true faith in Jesus Christ."

(34) Postmodernism by Gary Gilley, Southern View Chapel,  9/02
Postmodernism is born out of the ashes of the failure of modernity. It is the reaction of the disillusioned. If the
optimistic projections of the last two hundred years of the best efforts of reason, science and technology has
failed; and if the tenets of premodernism with its foundation of revelatory truth is preposterous, then all that is left is the pessimism of nothingness, emptiness and uncertainty. Perhaps never has the book of Ecclesiastes been more relevant than now.  Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5.

(35) The Women Of Neo-Pentecostalism (Latter Rain) by Discernment Ministries, January 2003
The heretic Montanus was the "father" of the prophetic movement of his day. He was the first person to allow women full and equal participation in ministry roles. He traveled with two women prophetesses who (along with Montanus) were proven to be false prophets. Like their spiritual grandfather the early Pentecostal pioneers adopted and added to his heretical stances, including allowing women into ministry positions Biblically reserved by divine fiat for men only.

(36) Trust and Trouble - The Story of Shiloh A Fascinating Chapter in American Faith by Shirley Nelson, Christian History Institute's Glimpses, Issue #171
DITC Note: This article and organization should be of note to those interested in the roots of the current Third Wave movement.  This is because of the information also included in the Glimpses, Issue 171 here about Charles Fox Parham and William Seymour. Many of the false doctrines of Shiloh and Frank Sandford continue on today in the Word-Faith, Third Wave, New Apostolic Movement.  At Azusa Street a number of wolves from various streams of false Christianity including Latter Rain came in and brought their heresy and fooled many sheep into thinking that it was a revival from God.  Please read about one of those who influenced the unbiblical strain of Pentecostalism now evolved into the Third Wave. 

(37) What is Gnosticism? by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 8/7/04
There is nothing new under sun.

(38) "Oneness Doctrine" (Jesus Only) vs. Trinitarianism by Tim Warner
This is a series on the heresy of Sabellianism and the biblical doctrine of the Trinity.  Though not all Third Wavers teach this heresy, they have accepted those who teach it as their brothers including Tommy Tenney, T.D. Jakes and the United Pentecostal Church.

Part 1: The Early Church Fathers Declared "Oneness" (Sabellianism) Heresy
Part 2: The Early Church Fathers In Support Of The Triunity of God
Part 3: The Early Church Fathers And Genesis 1:26
Part 4: God As A Tri-unity In The Old Testament
Part 5: The New Testament Shows Jesus IS NOT The Father

(41) God Of Jacob, God Of Israel by Dave Hunt, The Berean Call, August 2006

(42) The False Revival - Comparison (Video Excerpts from Christianity & False Religions) by Let Us Reason, 6/08
Video clips on YouTube.

(43) Is there such a thing as a Baptism of fire besides the baptism of the Holy Spirit? by Let Us Reason, 6/08
Acts 2:3-4: “Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” This event was unique, it occurred only once, it did not take place in either the apostles ministry or to the church ever again. It was never repeated in the New Testament, nor taught as a practice for the baptism of the Spirit in the church by the apostles. 

(44) Is the anointing tangible and transferable; can we impart it? by Let Us Reason, 6/08
A ‘transferable anointing’ is not seen nor practiced anywhere in Scripture. 

(45) What Language Do You Speak? by Jewel Grewe, Discernment Ministries Newsletter, Volume 19, Number 4, July/August 2008
It is because of this understanding that our hearts break over so many dear Christians who are not steeped in God’s Word today. They are not satisfied with the simplicity and beauty of walking by faith daily in the joy and blessings that He gives. This is the reason why Discernment Ministries has plodded along these many years weeping in the dreary dust of the crowds flittering here and there like the Athenians who spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.

(46) New Wine Deception by Petri Paavola, 2008
About 1970's started so called new charismatic movement, which is called "New Wine in New Winskins". This movement started to proclaim that Church must receive new anointment, which will change Churches if they overrule their old beliefs and "traditions". Movement proclaimed that old values are weak and valueless. Movement also taught that with the help of new anointment Churches can reach closer to God, and they will receive new and real anointment, new level of an anointment. Anointed "prophets" and "apostles" will lead this movement, who pass on continually new "prophecies" about what God will make in the future. Leaders and "prophets" of this movement promise all the time big revival, which always are placed in the future. They say that revival will turn the whole world to believe in Jesus Christ. Basic teaching of New Wine movement is Jesus' speech in which He said that no one puts new wine into old skins; otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins, and it will be poured out, and the skins will perish. But new wine is to be put into new skins. New Wine movement teaches that all believers need new anointment and for this reason must overrule old beliefs and "traditions". But what Jesus Christ meant in new wine?

Donations Accepted!

First of all, the best way you can support this web site is to be a Berean. Search the Scriptures daily and stand firm in your faith against the apostasy of the last days. It would give me great joy if more Christians would learn to discern! Secondly, please continue to uphold this ministry in prayer. The expository nature of this site has brought down the wrath of the enemy countless times. Thirdly, there are many costs involved in running this site as well as providing research and materials so that you will be armed with the truth. I send out three separate newsletters and provide other apologetics materials free of charge to Christian leaders in this area of the world. I am a full time missionary supported by sending churches in the U.S. For some years I did not ask for support but some people have sent me support and asked how they can help, so I want to provide the following information. Please don't neglect other Christian ministries that uphold the truth as God lays them on your heart. There are many. My contact information if you wish to send in monetary support is:
