Replacement Theology On Steroids
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

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 "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 on steroids!

Those Who Do Not Lead Christians to Maturity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

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

This DVD is a message based on this article.

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).

Four Books That the Enemy Has Used To Corrupt Christianity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

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 article.

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 article.

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 will.

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 in wickedness.

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"?

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.

"Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola 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 Or Hireling?"

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.

Testing Music In The Church
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on these articles: Testing Music In The Church, Testing Music In The Church-Part 2, and Worship Song Ratings.

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.

Examine Yourselves & Hold On!
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on the articles "Examine Yourself To See If You Are In The Faith" and "Hold On!"

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 article.

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
"Good English Bible Translations"
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

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.

Kingdom Now or Kingdom Come?
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

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.

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.

Articles on YWAM.

NOTE: Please understand that we are not faulting the many youth involved in YWAM for the unbiblical policies and teachings of the YWAM leadership. We are hopeful that youth involved in YWAM will find other avenues of ministry and that churches associated with and supporting YWAM will reexamine their relationship with this New Apostolic Reformation, ecumenical organization.

(1) Youth With A Mission Experiments With New, Unscriptural Missions Strategy by Watchman's Trumpet - 2000, Foundation Magazine, Dennis W.Costella, May - Jun 2000
"Several international missions organizations, including Youth With a Mission (YWAM), are testing a new approach to missionary work in areas where Christianity is unwelcome.  A March 24, 2000, Charisma News Service report said some missionaries are now making converts but are allowing them to "hold on to many of their traditional religious beliefs and practices" so as to refrain from offending others within their culture."

(2) Radical Missionary Approach Produces 'Messianic Muslims' Retaining Islamic Identity by Andy Butcher, Charisma News Service, March 24, 2000
YWAM has not only been involved in many unscriptural activities. "Spiritual mapping", promotion of Third Wave materials like Rick Joyner's book THE FINAL QUEST (since taken off their Canada site as of 8/02) George Otis' exaggeration and fabrications in his TRANSFORMATIONS video (also taken off their Canada site as of 8/02) as well as his book STRONGHOLDS OF THE 10/40 WINDOW (which YWAM publishes), as well as  PRAYING THROUGH THE 100 GATEWAY CITIES OF THE 10/40 WINDOW by C. Peter Wagner on the subject of "spiritual warfare" prayer (also published by YWAM). But some in YWAM have also adopted a new mission's strategy that should cause churches everywhere to seriously consider disassociating themselves with this once evangelical group. This new strategy goes directly against the Great Commission which states not that we are to make "converts" but to make "disciples" of all nations (peoples). "Messianic Muslims" who continue to read the Koran, visit the mosque and say their daily prayers but accept Christ as their Savior are the products of the strategy, which is being tried in several countries, according to Youth With a Mission (YWAM), one of the organizations involved. You can find the original article written by the YWAM Muslim missionary here.

(3) The "Spiritual Mapping" Of Youth With A Mission by GLR, 4/00
A page with various articles examining some of the false doctrines that YWAM has incorporated into their program  over the years including Charles Finney's pragmatic views of revival, Moral Government Theology, Abelard's Atonement, the spiritual mapping & warfare techniques of George Otis & C. Peter Wagner, and other problems which have led to the YWAM being blown about by every wind of doctrine.  "There are certain corner stones which have made the "casting about by every wind of doctrine" and "spiritual abuse" possible in YWAM. It is important to understand some of the things on this web page if you really want to understand present, confusing trends and movements in YWAM and other organizations."

(4) Messianic Muslims? by Orell Steinkamp, The Plumbline, Vol. 6, No. 2, March/April 2001
"Last year it was reported that several international mission organizations, including Youth With A Mission (YWAM) are testing a new approach to missionary work in areas where Christianity is unwelcome."

(5) Is That Really You, God? Hearing the Voice of God - A Review by Loren Cunningham with his sister, Janice Rogers, Chosen Books, 1984 -  Evaluation, quotes and comments by Rev. Greg Robertson, Jakarta, Indonesia. 
"Although Robertson had decided that his YWAM experience was something from the past which must be left at the foot of the cross, he soon found that the same false doctrines and spiritual misgivings which had so
negatively affected his life through his YWAM Daze, had progressed to new levels, moved further away from
Scripture and had become a poisonous leaven for other groups and movements."

(6) Loren Cunningham, YWAM and False Prophecy by B.B. in a letter dated June 4, 2001
"... Because the "prophecies" that had been given in England, the U.S.A. etc. were so definite that the "Maori" was God's ship for YWAM, when the ship was finally sent to the wrecking yard in Asia for scrap, not only were the Christians involved severely hurt, but the non-believers in N.Z. laughed those who had been deceived to scorn.  The credibility of the Christian church in general was hurt severely among the unbelievers as well as many in the church."

(7) Joy Dawson Of Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Joins Forces With Benny Hinn by Sandy Simpson, 1/28/02 "In Benny Hinn's Honolulu, HI crusade at the Blaisdel Arena on 1/11/02 Joy Dawson of YWAM appeared on stage with Benny.  Prior and subsequent to this appearance she was also featured on his TV programs.  Onstage Joy Dawson was highly complimentary of Benny Hinn and his ministries. They made plans to reach out to the youth of HI together officially that night."

(8) Open Letter To The Leadership Of YWAM by Sandy Simpson, 2/8/02 
This is an open letter that was sent out to all the leadership of YWAM asking them why they are now endorsing and working with false prophet Benny Hinn.  We are waiting for a response from ANY of YWAM's leadership. No Answer From YWAM As Of: 

(9) YWAM And Benny Hinn Agree To Work Together by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 3/17/02
"New developments in evangelism and discipleship."

(10) YWAM - A "New Evangelism" For The 21st Century by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 4/13/02
"There has been a controversy brewing on a new type of evangelism used in YWAM and a few other missionary organizations. It’s about doing mission work in a completely new way unheard of before, an experimental way, that is supposed to yield results where there were only a few results before. This article is not written to just be controversial, but to look at a very real issue that can change the church not just Muslims. It is more serious than most will want to admit for true missionary work is at stake. I have made the whole matter as simple as possible, so that even a layman can understand the ramifications of what is now taking place."

(11) Indigenous People Issues - A Warning About The World Christian Gathering Of Indigenous People by Sandy Simpson, Pacific Waves Newsletter, 5/02
"But I do not endorse movements that, for all their good intentions, are a mixture of good, unbiblical and heretical theology. How can we effectively bring the gospel if that gospel is tainted by the world, the flesh and the devil. We as Christians must stand firm in the faith once for all delivered to the saints. We must not get involved in ecumenical movements that look like the world, act like the world, and instead of bringing the Word to the world are bringing the world to the world."  Go here for a commentary on the full transcript of the "Word To The World" radio programs 541-550.

(12) Book Review of "TAKING OUR CITIES FOR GOD" by John Dawson, YWAM Publishing 1989 Reviewed by Steve Mitchell, Answers For India, 11/02
Taking Our Cities For God, written by John Dawson is over 10 years old. Why would A.F.I. bother reviewing a book that some might consider outdated and seldom read? The reason is because it is still heavily recommended reading for YWAM youth and staff across the globe today. YWAM's DTS (Discipleship Training Schools) feature this book (in some form) as source material in some classes and the students are taught to implement these prayer and spiritual warfare practices.

(13) YWAM: The Facts About Their Headlong Dive Into Apostasy by Sandy Simpson, 12/7/02 
YWAM has been slipping into apostasy for years.  I and many others have tried to help them back to orthodoxy, written letters to their leaders, all without success.  It has been made plain to us and others that they have completely bought into every aspect of the New Apostolic Reformation and are now very visible and vocal proponents of the C. Peter Wagner "gospel".

(14) Updated 2004! YWAM Testimonies - 2002
Testimonies about what goes on inside YWAM from YWAMers themselves.

(15) The Dialectic & Praxis: Diaprax and the End of the Ages by Dean Gotcher
The Hegelian Dialectic/Diaprax consists of three steps called Thesis, Antithesis, and Synthesis.  This method is being employed everywhere in our modern society, including the Church.  It is especially evident in groups such as mega-churches, the Third Wave, YWAM and other apostate groups.

(16) Why I Am The Way I Am About YWAM by Steve Mitchell, Power To Stand Ministries
I must stand by my current convictions: YWAM is not a wise choice for anyone interested in safe spiritual mission work at this time. See our other current as well as forthcoming articles for info on some areas of real concern in YWAM. False teaching has consequences both for the perpetrator and for the victim. Test all things by God’s Word and reject the false. Until YWAM leaders like Lehmann, Cunningham, Dawson, Greene and others make this effort we should abstain from sending our young people or going ourselves.

(17) An Open Letter To Calvary Chapel Pastors Of America Concerning YWAM by Steve Mitchell, Power To Stand Ministries, 2/02

Dear reader, this is a copy of an open letter sent to many Calvary Chapel pastors in the United States outlining some existing concerns about affiliating with Youth With A Mission. I am pleased to report that I got almost 30 responses from concerned Calvary Chapel pastors/youth pastors. All received were favorable in that they agreed with the concerns I raised. In addition, several even shared specific incidences that confirmed these things. All were thankful that a stand was being taken and felt that it was a good thing that they weren’t the only ones with these concerns.
(19) Fivefold Ministry Makes A Comeback by Christian Research Journal, Volume 22, Number 1 (1999)
The two cassette tapes are eerie. One speaker, Bill Hamon, urges the congregation to invite “war angels” into the sanctuary and uses sound effects — “Whish!” — as he suggests the angels are arriving. Another speaker, Cindy Jacobs, foresees revival coming to the Latter-day Saints Temple in Salt Lake City and to Freemasons within the Southern Baptist Convention. She speaks of God giving instant sex-change operations to transvestites on New Orleans’s debauched Bourbon Street. She notes that the anointing of the Holy Spirit now resides in her left arm, having moved from her right arm. I offer these quotes to you because YWAM is selling books by Cindy Jacobs, as well as other false teachers and false prophets from the International Coalition Of Apostles on their main site.  They sell books by these New Apostolic proponents and sympathizers, and a partial list was as follows as of 2/04: 
Rick Warren (Purpose Driven Life, Purpose Driven Church) Ted Haggard (Dog Training, Fly Fishing, and Sharing Christ in the 21st Century) Bill Hybels (Courageous Leadership, Becoming A Contagious Christian, Leadership By The Book)Cindy Jacobs(Possessing the Gates of the Enemy, The Voice of God) C. Peter Wagner (100 Gateway Cities, Acts of the Holy Spirit, Breaking Strongholds in Your City, Churches That Pray, Confronting The Powers, New Apostolic Churches, Prayer Shield, Warfare Prayer, Your Spiritual Gifts) Dutch Sheets (Intercessory Prayer) Rich Marshall (God at Work, foreword by Tommy Tenney) David Cannistraci (Apostles And The Emerging Apostolic Movement) George Otis, Jr. (God's Trademarks, Informed Intercession, Last of the Giants, Strongholds of the 10/40 Window, Twilight Labyrinth) Charles Kraft (Anthropology for Christian Witness, Christianity with Power) Winkie Pratney (Fire On The Horizon) Steve Hawthorne (Prayerwalking) John Dawson (Healing America's Wounds, Taking Our Cities for God) Joy Dawson (Forever Ruined for the Ordinary, Influencing Children to Become World Changers, Intercession, Thrilling And Fulfilling, Intimate Friendship With God, Some Of The Ways Of God In Healing) 
For the leadership of YWAM, including co-founders Loren Cunningham and Joy Dawson (who have both appeared on false prophet Benny Hinn's TV program and Dawson in his crusade in Honolulu promising cooperation from YWAM) to continually attempt to hide the fact that YWAM is involved in promoting Latter Rain doctrines, books and personalities in the New Apostolic Reformation all over the world is highly disingenuous!
(20) Richard Twiss Connections by Sandy Simpson, 10/1/04
Richard Twiss is spreading the doctrines of the New Apostolic Reformation and is endorsed by them.  He claims that the Great Spirit of the Indians is the Holy Spirit of the Bible, and endorses ministries who make this same claim.  He endorses and promoted books by people like Daniel Kikawa that present information as fact when it is proven myth.  He continues to teach that the Great Spirit is the Holy Spirit by wearing the cultural items associated with the Great Spirit, even though it is a historical fact that the Great Spirit is a pantheistic god that required blood rituals and human sacrifice.  Richard Twiss claims that what he is doing is not syncretism, when it is the very definition of syncretism.

Taking a look at a new Christian article on the new ways for evangelization.

(22) A Call To The Nations? by Sandy Simpson, 4/28/05
Unbiblical teachings by the organizers and participants of this conference including Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa, Aloha Ke Akua and YWAM.

(23) Let's "Talkstory"! by Sandy Simpson, 5/7/05
Two stories to illustrate and correct the false teachings of "A Call To All Nations" speakers including Don Richardson, John Dawson, Richard Twiss and Daniel Kikawa with regard to there being worship of the true God in hundreds of cultures from the beginning.

(24) Perpetuated In Righteousness - A Review by Mike Oppenheimer, 5/5/05
A series of articles reviewing, in detail, this book which is one of the books laying the basis for the "A Call To All Nations" conference.

(1) Overview of the Book Perpetuated in Righteousness
(2) The Gospel in the Stars
(3) Perpetuated in Righteousness or Perpetuating a Modern Myth
(4) Io the God of the Bible
(5) Io, the Trinity, and the gods

(25) Regarding The Accuracy Of Oral Traditions - With Reference To Daniel Kikawa's Book "Perpetuated In Righteousness" by Sandy Simpson, 5/10/05
The accuracy of oral tradition is, in a word, "inaccurate".  I dare say that if we were able to trace back most oral traditions today, as God sees them from an eternal perspective, we would see the mutations, changes and fabrications involved in modern mythology.  We would also see a lot of "fables".

(26) The Testimony Of Heneri Opukaha'ia - regarding the state of religion and society in Hawaii before the Gospel - A Rebuttal To Daniel Kikawa's Book "Perpetuated In Righteousness" by Sandy Simpson, 5/17/05
This article is a reminder of what Hawaii was like before the Gospel was preached.  This is the account of a very important eyewitness. It is an unfortunate fact that often, by the third generation of Christians in any given area of the world, important information has begun to be lost and forgotten.  This is clearly evident in the writings of people like Daniel Kikawa.  The stark facts, of Hawaiian culture and religion before the Gospel was preached in Hawaii, are made evident by the testimony of a man without whom the peoples of Hawaii would never have had the opportunity to hear the Gospel message and would still be living in the sins of their ancestors.

(27) Culturized Christianity by Mike Oppenheimer, 5/22/05
A series dealing with the issues raised by the First Nations Indigenous People's Movement.

(28) Be Wary Of YWAM - A Warning to Hawaii Churches Concerning Youth With A Mission by Steve Mitchell, Power To Stand, 6/05
Make no mistake. YWAM as an organization has been and currently is involved in promoting and endorsing Third Wave/New Apostolic Reformation (NAR for short) principles, practices, and teachers. This is not to say that every individual out of the 200,000 or so somehow involved in this group holds uniformly to what the leadership promotes, BUT when YWAM leaders officially cooperate and collaborate with dangerous teachers (including endorsing and publishing their books), we need to see this massive movement for what it is in light of it’s official views. What follows is a brief look at some developments in the past few decades concerning YWAM and its leaders. 

(29) 11 Reasons To Reject The Teachings Of The Indigenous People's Movement by Sandy Simpson, 3/4/06
When you mythologize religion and ignore the clear teachings of the Bible, as above, in order to make people feel better about themselves and their cultures, you are effectively preaching another gospel.    Don't have time for this 24 page article?  Try the shortened 16 page version here.

(30) The Newest Heresy of the NAR: Orality by Discernment Research Group, Herescope, 3/8/2006
The latest fad is potentially the most grievous heresy to arise in the recent history of the Church. It is a repudiation of literacy -- the written Word. It is now widely being taught to missionaries, particularly through mission groups closely associated with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). - A global partnership involving Campus Crusade for Christ, the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention, Wycliffe International & The Seed Company, Trans World Radio and YWAM—using chronological Bible storying among unreached people groups.

(31) An Endrun Around Rom. 1 And Acts 17 - A Gameplan of YWAM by Sandy Simpson, 3/4/06
Daniel Kikawa, formerly with YWAM and now with his own organization called Aloha Ke Akua, and Danny Lehmann, Director of YWAM Honolulu have repeatedly pulled Romans 1 and Acts 17 from their contexts in order to promote IPM ideology.  I have yet to hear them, or any other leader in the IPM for that matter, teach these Scriptures in context.  Yanking Scriptures out of context is one of the first marks of false teaching. 

(32) Golden Calf Evangelism by Mike Oppenheimer, 4/11/06
An expose on the false teachings of YWAM with regard to the Indigenous People's Movement.

(1) Golden Calf Evangelism - The gospel of Inclusivism- Daniel Kikawa's very revealing Interview.

(4) The God’s of the Nations are not God - Are the gods of the nations the God of the Bible?
(5) Cultivating other gods
(6)  Conclusion of the Indigenous Inclusive method of evangelism
(Added material) Romans 1 - suppressing the truth in unrighteousness
(33) More False "First Nations" Teachings - On Genesis 11:1-9 (Babel) & Acts 17:18-34 (Mars Hill) by Sandy Simpson, 5/4/06
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.

Critical Missiological Issue!

This DVD video series features Mike Oppenheimer and Sandy Simpson and their in depth research regarding the First Nations Movement and World Christian Gatherings of Indigenous Peoples.  This is an issue that pastors and missionaries need to be informed of because it goes to the core of evangelism and preaching the Gospel.

(34) Nimrod & Babel compiled by Sandy Simpson, 5/8/06
This article is written to clarify the issue of Babel that is taught unbiblically by the First Nations Movement leadership. In this article we will look exclusively at Nimrod and his kingdom, Babel.  We will compare what the Bible teaches about him and what it teaches about the coming Antichrist and his short-lived kingdom.

(35) Confronting YWAM’s Crusader: Concerns Regarding the Teachings of Danny Lehmann - Part 1 by Steve Mitchell, Power to Stand, 05/10/06

The Preacher - Part 4
Surfing the Third Wave/The Emergent - Part 5

(36) WCGIP Davao Event Planned To Redeem The "Cross" by Sandy Simpson, 6/23/06
The following from the current Wiconi "Smoke Signals" Newsletter is a perfect example of why Christians everywhere need to get the word out for indigenous churches to avoid this Indigenous People's movement. This kind of teaching and demonstration is not a good witness to the world.

(37) IPM False Teaching About The Names Of God by Sandy Simpson, 6/24/06
Danny Lehmann, YWAM Director in Honolulu and pastor at Calvary Chapel Komo Mai was on the Calvary Chapel KLHT radio station again on Friday, June 23, 2006 with another argument to try to shore up the false doctrines that he and others of the IPM, including Don Richardson, Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa, have been teaching.  Their claim is that God has many names in many cultures and can be legitimately worshipped by those names.  Lehmann argues that the proof of this idea comes from the fact that in the Bible God has many "names". 

(38) Purpose Driven Hip-Hop? from an email update from Youth Alive Victoria, commentary by Sandy Simpson, 4/20/07
I received this email update from Youth Alive Victoria.  In a previous article I showed how Youth Alive promoted the Third Wave in concerts worldwide.  I also showed how they promote the use of Alpha Course.  Youth Alive continues down the road to apostasy by promoting "Purpose Driven Hip-Hop".  This shows the influence of Rick Warren's books in their organization.  IT also shows they very much support YWAM which is aa adherant and promoter of the New Apostolic Reformation.  It is my hope the parents will take this as a warning and not send their kids to be infleunce by Youth Alive!

(39) Church Shooter A Member Of Youth With A Mission by James Jacob Prasch, Moriel Ministries, 12/22/07
Matthew Murray, the deranged shooter who murdered four and attempted to murder hundreds of other Christians in his armed attacks on a mission’s center in Arvada, Colorado and on an Evangelical church in Colorado Springs had been until recently a member of the spiritually and doctrinally warped 'Youth With A Mission' (YWAM) organization founded by Loren Cunningham and promoted by Danny Lehmann. 

(40) A Warning Concerning YWAM’s “The Friend’s Network”: “With Friends Like These…” by Steve Mitchell, Power To Stand Ministries, 1/14/07
Several years ago YWAM proposed a new kind of pseudo-mission endeavor in which YWAM missionaries would allegedly preach Muslims the “gospel” and a supposed great harvest would result. The idea was that a Muslim who was persuaded to believe the gospel would be encouraged to make a profession, albeit privately to avoid persecution. This new “convert” was then informed that they could continue regular mosque attendance, bowing in prayer to Allah, and Quranic reading and still be considered born again. They would then be referred to as “Messianic Muslims”. Make no mistake, they were still Muslims but had claimed some level of “belief” in Jesus Christ. As long as when they continued their “cultural” expressions of worship to Allah but inside actually prayed to Jesus Christ, they were considered saved. 

(41) Baha’i & YWAM's "Indigenous People's Movement" (IPM) - Comparison Chart by Sandy Simpson, 3/6/08
You will notice a very close comparison in this chart between false religion and so-called "Christian" leaders.

(42) Inside the Insider Movement and More by Gary Gilley, Think On These Things, August/September 2010 - Volume 16, Issue 4
There are wide differences of definition and application within the Insider Movements; the above has merely been an introduction to the discussion.  At stake however is whether, and to what degree, an individual can remain within his former false religion and still legitimately be considered a disciple of Christ.  While certain cultural and traditional practices can be viewed as neutral, certainly the core issues such as the gospel, Scripture, the identity of God and the person and work of Christ cannot be compromised. 

(43) Youth With A Mission (YWAM) - Will You Entrust Your Youth To YWAM by Chris Lawson, Spiritual Research Network, 12/5/10
In 1993, I traveled across the globe and was involved with Youth With A Mission.  From California, to a YWAM Discipleship Training base on the Hawaiian island of Maui for one month, and then to Bali, Indonesia for one month of outreach YWAM style - Little did I know at the time, I was in for a real ride. Unaware of the problematic teachings with YWAM and its nose dive into unbelievable compromises and affiliation with known false teachers and false prophets, I embarked on my journey.  Within one week, I was very sad that I had gotten involved.  Being involved with YWAM was a very serious wake up call to what is really going on in this very compromised movement.

(44) Staking The Land by Slaughter of the Sheep, 2/20/11
I received this in e-mail from a reader and wanted to post it so you could evaluate it.  I’m thinking you will come to the same conclusions I did after you read it. This was taken from a flyer distributed by a hypercharismatic church in New Jersey.  Before you read it, I’m going to give you my impression.  Witchcraft, nonsense, and … well, that pretty much sums it up. (DITC Note: This stems from the practices introduced to the churches by people like John Dawson and C. Peter Wagner and which is one of the many pragmatic Christian witchcraft practices being espoused and practiced by YWAM.  To see the genesis of this type of thing, read Mike Oppenheimer's articles on Anna Mendez Ferrell)

(45) The Prophetic Art and spiritistic claims of Ana Mendez Ferrell by Mike Oppenheimer, Let Us Reason Ministries, 10/26/10

(47) The Shocking History of Spiritual Warfare by End Times Prophetic, 6/15/11
This YouTube video exposes the background of many "spiritual wardare" pracitces employed by groups like YWAM.  Spiritual Warfare, unlike how it is presented, is NOT a new concept or practice. Here are some key facts about spiritual warfare, prayer walking and identification repentance that the third wave charismatic church do NOT want their followers to know.

(48) The error of the Moral Government view of the atonement by Matt Slick, CARM, 3/18/12
The Moral government idea of the atonement where there is no correspondence between sin and legal debts of the law, is clearly on biblical. It denies summary Scriptures and is heretical. Please be aware of the Christ took our place on the cross (Isaiah 53:4-6). He bore our sins in his body on the cross (1 Peter 2:24). He canceled out the legal certificate of debt (Colossians 2:14). In short, he is the one who satisfy the requirements of the law, paid the debt of the law, and gives us his righteousness. This is why the Bible says we are justified (declared legally righteous), by faith ( Romans 5:1).

(49) Letter to the Editor: Concerns About Shalem Institute, Vineyard, and YWAM by Lighthouse Trails, 5/25/13
LTRP Note: Just as we were about to post this letter to the editor, which in part talks about Vineyard churches, we received a phone call from a LT reader who warned us about a book written by Ken Wilson titled Mystically Wired: Exploring New Realms In Prayer. Co-incidentally, according to the back of the book, Ken Wilson, is a senior pastor for a Vineyard church and a member of the national board for Vineyard churches. As the title indicates, his book, Mystically Wired, is advocating contemplative mystical prayer.

(50) What's Wrong with YWAM? Evangelism or ecumenism, you decide by Mike Oppenheimer, 11/18/13
One blogger wants to help and see the problems corrected. However, this has gone on far too long, and the comments by people who are aware are quite revealing. Those who excuse the wrong use the age-old excuse - but they do some good too. While we know that not every YWAM leader is bad, what is happening in YWAM is like a runaway train that cannot be stopped.

(51) The Marketplace Movement... 7 Mountains... YWAM = NAR-connected by Karin Jannson, 3/1/14
In the end of 2012 I came in touch with a woman from Norway via Caryl Matrisciana... 
We found each other quickly and felt "the unity of the Spirit" – understood each other exactly regarding heresies etc. 
She sent me a document that her daughter had written to the YWAM-base Grimerud in Norway. She had written 
about her experience with Restore 24/7 - YWAM - Youth With A Mission – to point out the unbiblical doctrines that 
they have taken into their teachings.

(52) A Public Letter From Renovare Reveals Troubling Connection with YWAM by Lighthouse Trails, 10/16/14
This past summer, a Lighthouse Trails reader sent us this e-mail letter she received from Renovare (Richard Foster’s contemplative outreach organization). Our reader is on the Renovare mailing list as she has grave concerns about friends who are involved with contemplative spirituality, and she monitors this group. The letter reveals the tight connection that YWAM (Youth With a Mission) has with the contemplative prayer movement.

His Name, The Only Name
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

Zechariah 14:9 NIV The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.

 The reason I wrote this article based on Zech 14:9 is that I was reminded of how many so-called Christians, who are influential in the churches, are promoting the worship of God in the names of other gods.
