January 24, 2010 This time the term Seismic Shock doesn't have anything to do with the tragedy of Haiti. It is about less shocking (but still amazing) story of a blogger being muzzled by a strange synergy between a religious cleric and the gendarmes of the state where both the blogger and the cleric reside.

‚ © ‚  2005 ‚  WorldNetDaily.com To attract the largest followings possible and because they have bought the lie of the new tolerance, many of America's churches, Christian publishers and Christian radio stations " “ whether they know it or not " “ have rejected biblical Christianity and adopted the more popular but bogus gospel of Christian happy-talk. As a result, churches brim with converts committed only to their personal self-actualization, publishers lavish feel-good pabulum on their readers, and the airwaves ring with an emotive rendering of Christianity that would fit nicely alongside the corruptions of faith Jesus chides in the second and third chapters of Revelation. More than 30 years ago, Vance Havner, in his book "Playing Marbles with Diamonds," offered the following insightful: Read more ...

PowerToStand Ministries Misguided Missiology 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. Read more ...

Gospel Message via Tarot Cards A provocative way of presenting the gospel in New Spirituality festivals is via tarot cards. ‚  John Drane, Ross Clifford and Philip Johnson have developed this approach. ‚  Understandably, most Christians will baulk at the idea because tarot cards have occult connections. ‚   To properly argue why tarot cards could be used as a device for communicating the gospel would require a lengthy paper. ‚  A few basic points may be summarised, but readers should consult the literature listed below for more details. ‚  Many popular books by New Spirituality seekers and by Christian apologists on the subject of tarot present false historical data about their origins and purpose.

This is probably the first of what may be a number of follow-up articles, this one appearing on the New Yorker website titled, "Apostate: Paul Haggis vs. the Church of Scientology". Paul Haggis was not merely a member of this organization for 34 years but held prominent positions of leadership and recruiting (particularly in Hollywood). The article is quite long (26 pages in the print edition) but well worth the time, especially if you have friends or family involved with what Moriel Ministries considers to be nothing less than a cult.
