THE DESTRUCTION OF THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION

John S. Torell

 

 

(continued from previous page)

 

THE WORLD GOVERNMENT CONNECTIONS OF RICK WARREN

Rick Warren is a member of The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which is a sister organization to The Trilateral Commission (TC). I do not know how long Rick has been a member of this elite World Government organization that informed Christians know as a powerful cabal of leaders in the World Government agencies but here is an excerpt from an e-mail that he sent to his congregation at Saddleback on September 17, 2005:

 “Dear Saddleback Family…. This week I shared part of this message in New York City where I spoke at the United Nations, and also to The Council on Foreign Relations…”

Oxford Analytica is another organization of which Rick Warren is a member. I had never heard of it before and this is what I found out about it. It was founded by an American named David R. Young (right), who as a young man came to Oxford, England to study law in 1961. He returned to the United States in 1963 to get a law degree from Cornell University. After his graduation, he went back to England to be registered as an attorney with the Bar of England, and then returned to the United States where he worked for a law firm in New York. After four years he was discovered by the Rockefeller clan who introduced him to Henry Kissinger (left). When Kissinger was appointed to become President Nixon’s Assistant for National Security Affairs, David Young was asked to serve as Kissinger’s Administrative Assistant in late 1969. David worked in this position until 1973, when he resigned and moved back to Oxford and worked on his Ph.D., using his activities during his stay at the White House as his subject. The project was finished in 1981.

While he was working on his doctorate, he did a study for General Electric (GE) regarding what the business climate would be during the next three to five years. GE was very pleased with the result and ordered more studies for a number of nations. In order to do this, Young hired people to form teams who could work in the different nations. By 1975, the business corporation was formed, offering political and economical forecasts for different nations that were needed by global corporations for their planning for future growth. Oxford Analytica has developed into a private intelligence service, selling their services not only to private corporations but also to governments.

TWO IMPORTANT QUESTIONS

1.      Most members of CFR are not Christians. They range from Luciferians, atheists, agnostics, practicing Jews, Freemasons, etc. So what does a Southern Baptist pastor have to offer these ungodly world elite?

2.      What can a Southern Baptist pastor contribute to an international private intelligence service which caters to global corporations and national governments?

Let me now answer these two questions. First, as of 2007, the Southern Baptist Convention has around 16.3 million members, the second largest denomination after the Roman Catholic Church. This is a huge voting block in American elections, and by pampering Rick Warren and appealing to his ego (just as was done to Billy Graham and others), the CFR will have a “pied piper” to lead this group of people in a direction beneficial to the policies of the CFR. Warren is also being used as a talent scout to find young people who can be enticed into involvement in international politics and become “useful idiots” in the future for the World Government. At the Southern Baptist Convention, Warren can be used to sway the opinion of statements adopted by the convention.

Second, intelligence services have recruited missionaries and ministers in the United States to serve as undercover agents for many years. This is something that I observed for myself while I was in seminary training. Normal people do not have a criminal mind and therefore do not understand what is going on behind closed doors. A good intelligence agent not only spies and collects information but is also trained to plant disinformation and sway political leaders to change directions in private sessions. Now you should understand why Rick Warren has an open door to North Korea under the pretense of preaching the Gospel? Why did he travel to Syria to meet the president of that nation? What kind of message was he relaying?

Some national governments have rightfully accused American missionaries of being spies. The CIA, FBI and other agencies can deny it, but it is true that they have recruited pastors and missionaries. The majority of pastors and missionaries do not work for intelligence services but there are enough of these spies to destroy the reputation of the Church of Jesus Christ. 

Rick and Kay Warren are very rich people and donate 90% of their income to three foundations. Rick does not receive a salary anymore from the Saddleback church and has paid back his salaries received for the last 25 years. However, if they really wanted to be humble, they would never have made this information public.

There is no doubt in my mind that Rick Warren as a young boy accepted Christ and at one time was on fire for the Lord. But those days are gone and the ministry Warren has now is not the Gospel according to the Bible, but a social world pleasing message, where the emphasis is shifting to global warming, saving the environment, and going green. We must remember that Jesus did not die on the cross to save the planet but to save and redeem sinful mankind. After all, when everything is said and done, this planet will be destroyed and nothing will be saved by God. (2 Peter 3:10-13)

Notable Names Database (NNDB) is an online database of biographical details of notable people. It describes itself as an intelligence aggregator containing profiles of prominent individuals. Is it a coincidence that when they listed some statistics on Rick Warren, they also mentioned depression as one of his risk factors? NNDB states the following about depression:

“A listing in this section does not necessarily mean that an individual is currently depressed. Nor does it indicate something is wrong with the individual or that there ever was: depression is often a condition resulting from events outside of someone's control. If someone has had public battles with depression, expect them on this list. But please bear in mind its historical nature and do not treat it as a diagnosis.” nndb.com/lists/781/000064589/

Any believer in Christ who strays away from the Lord, becomes involved in the occult world, and then moves into the world and becomes successful will be empty on the inside as the Holy Spirit is kicked out and evil spirits are invited. If you are one of the sheep who got lured into the Purpose Driven program, repent and return to the Lord.

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON AND RICK WARREN

In November 2007, Rick and Kay Warren hosted a “Global Summit on Aids and the Church” at the Saddleback church complex in Orange County, California. Flyers advertising the conference were sent out to every church listed in the phonebook in California.

According to the official flyer, the goal of this conference was to focus on the need to care for people with AIDS. Here is a statement on the flyer:

“Whether you are a pastor or a local church leader, physician, scientist, government official, business professional, student, educator, relief organization or person with HIV/AIDS, the 2007 Global Summit is the only place where people from every field come together to interact, share best practices, and focus on the practical next steps in caring about people infected and affected by HIV.”

There was a total of eight Pre-Summit sessions, each priced at $45. The cost of the main conference meetings was $299 if you registered early and $349 for walk-ins. Rick Warren knows that the young people are the future and also scheduled a Youth Summit to be held on December 1st, with a cost of $15. Interestingly, the Youth Summit was reasonably priced to encourage the parents to have their children indoctrinated.

It was advertised that over 50 global speakers had been secured, including Peter Piot (right), MD, Ph.D., who is the Under Secretary General for the United Nations. The wives of the presidents of Zambia and Rwanda were part of the speakers, plus a number of other so called dignitaries. None of them were advertised as outstanding soul winners for Christ, instead, they were either medical doctors, directors of liberal social ministries or pastors of some liberal church. Reading the brochure it was evident that Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit were not invited. It is noteworthy to point out that one of the key speakers at this conference was Lynne Hybels (left), the wife of Bill Hybels.

There was no discussion about the danger of homosexuality, instead, everything was focused on care, medication and easing the pain of the people suffering from AIDS.

Hillary Clinton (right) showed up on the second day of the conference and was given the opportunity to speak to the some 1,700 attendees. Rick Warren gave her a warm introduction and a hug before she spoke, to which the people attending responded by giving her a standing ovation.

All the presidential candidates had been invited to come but Hillary was the only one that took time off from the primary campaign to fly out to California. Since all political candidates have speech writers, the speech for this audience was written in such a way that it would persuade this religious audience to vote for her. The speech writer wrote in many biblical references and some “personal religious thoughts” from Clinton. Her solution to the AIDS problem was to call for billions of dollars to be spent combating HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases at home and abroad.

It is interesting to note that if a person in the United States is found to be infected with Tuberculosis, the medical doctor in charge will demand that the person be detained and locked up in a hospital until it is proven that the person is cured. If the infected person does not go along with this, law enforcement will arrest the person and bring them to be quarantined in a locked hospital ward. However, if a person is diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, they are free to roam about and do anything they want, including acts of sodomy, which are known to spread the infection. But since homosexuality is a political issue, HIV/AIDS is by default a political disease and cannot be treated like Tuberculosis; only treatment to the sum of billions of dollars is allowed.

If Rick Warren and his wife Kay were true believers in Christ, they would never have gone along with this charade. They would not have courted Hillary Clinton, who in turn knows that the Warren’s can turn out millions of so-called Christian voters come election time.

HOW A CHURCH IS DESTROYED

In his book “The Dark Side of the Purpose Driven Church,” Noah Hutchings (right) describes how the Southern Baptist Church he belonged to in Oklahoma City was made into a Purpose Driven church.

It began in the fall of 2003, when the current pastor, Dr. Mark Hartman, resigned and went to another church. Some people in leadership of the church, including the minister of music, had been sold on the Purpose Driven Life and were able to put together a list of seven people who were going to be on the search committee for the new pastor. At a business meeting, the membership accepted the slate as presented, and in a short time a pastor was lined up and voted in by the majority of the church members. It is important to remember that the rank and file members of the church had no understanding of the coup in progress.

CHURCH LEADERSHIP TRAINING

Shortly after the new pastor had been voted in, he and others in leadership traveled to Willow Creek Church in Chicago to attend a training session for the Purpose Driven Life. Bill Hybels and Rick Warren are buddies, each building their own little empire. In order to understand what happened to the pastor from Oklahoma City when he arrived at Hybels’ church, it is necessary to take a look at Bill Hybels.

WILLIAM (BILL) HYBELS

Every denomination in the United States has been infiltrated by liberal demonic doctrine and the Evangelical Free Church of America is no exception. This denomination has its roots from the Scandinavian Mission Covenant Churches that were born out of an awakening in Sweden in 1878. People broke away from the Swedish State Lutheran Church, and it became a strong evangelical movement preaching the necessity to be born again, but they were never able to break away from infant baptism. As millions of Swedes, Danes and Norwegians immigrated to the United States to escape the poverty that existed in the Scandinavian nations in the 1800s and early 1900s, they brought with them the Mission Covenant Church, and in 1885, the Swedish Evangelical Covenant Church was founded in Chicago, Illinois.

In 1884, a group of Swedes in Boone, Iowa founded the Swedish Evangelical Free Mission, and for some time the two denominations worked together until they eventually became two separate entities. Bill Hybels has his roots from the Evangelical Free Church, which is a merger of the Swedish Evangelical Free Church and the Norwegian-Danish Evangelical Free Church that took place in 1950.

Bill Hybels (right) was born in 1952 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. At the age of 20, Hybels was the youth pastor at Park Ridge’s South Park Church in the Chicago area. With Dave Holmbo, he started a youth group called “Son City.” By 1975, the youth group had grown from 25 to 1,200 young people. Modern music (rock), dramatic skits, and multimedia with Bible studies using bastard versions of the Bible propelled the growth of the group.

Bill married his wife Lynne in 1974, and during the same year, he began the work to start their own church. The first meeting was held on October 12, 1975, and Willow Creek Church was born. The first meeting was attended by 125 people, and by 1977, the church had grown to a membership of some 2,000. In 1981, the church relocated to South Barrington (Chicago area). Ten years later, Bill introduced cell groups and by the year 2000, more than 15,000 people attended the church along with a cell network of some 2,600 groups.

Bill Hybels more or less bypassed the denomination he came from and has built his own denomination called, The Willow Creek Association, with some 11,000 churches worldwide. Bill has developed what is called “seeker sensitive” churches, using modern worship (rock music), drama, and friendly messages geared for the unchurched people. The Wednesday night service is geared as a light Bible study for new believers.

Bill Hybels is the CEO for around 48 full-time pastors who run this huge business empire. Hybels is spending more and more time traveling to lecture, teach and increase his denomination. He has a BA degree in Biblical Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, Illinois and was later given an honorary doctor of divinity degree. The school is owned and operated by the Evangelical Free Churches of America. 

The preaching of the cross, repentance, salvation, hell and the coming judgment for all people has been replaced with dance and drama in the worship services, including so-called Christian rock music and multimedia slideshows. Hybels is also tied in with Robert Schuller, and in the books he has written, Hybels gives much credit for his success to the “positive thinking” marketed by Schuller. Hybels even promoted the Robert Schuller Institute in a November 18, 1988, advertisement in the magazine, “Christianity Today.”

WHAT IS A HYBELS CHURCH?

Bill Hybels is a showman and gives people what they want, a contemporary church with rock music, dance, entertainment, and a feel good message based on bastard translations of the Bible. It is void of any confrontation of the sinful nature of man, the need for repentance and receiving Jesus as Lord and Saviour. There is no talk about hell and later the Lake of Fire. According to Bill’s own writing, his church contains Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, Narcotics Anonymous, Emotions Anonymous, etc. In addition, they have counseling centers, a food pantry, employment counseling, and a benevolent ministry for people with financial needs.

Hybels also states that there are two different gospels, one for man and one for women. According to Hybels, the gospel message for a man is that a relationship with Jesus Christ is essential to avoid mindless misinterpretations of masculine identity. For a woman, the gospel is that Jesus Christ offers freedom from being a people-pleaser, thereby allowing her to satisfy her need for inner security.

A Hybels church does not have a conventional worship service. There is no altar, choir, organ, hymnals or song books and the music has many different styles (i.e. rock, jazz, country and classical). The message conveyed is upbeat, but the idea is not so much about being saved from eternal damnation in the Lake of Fire, but a salvation from meaninglessness and aimlessness in life on earth.

THE NEW PASTOR COMES BACK TO OKLAHOMA CITY

The first Sunday the new pastor was back from Chicago, he appeared on stage with slacks, a sport shirt and coat. After a while he took off his coat and displayed he was dressed in a jogging suit, just like Rick Warren. When the choir came in they were dressed like the choir at Rick Warren’s church, looking like old hippies. The 35 deacons and the 30 staff members of the church were dressed just like Rick Warren too. When the pastor preached, he was sitting on a stool, I’m sure you’re getting the point, just like Rick Warren.

PURPOSE DRIVEN MUSIC

Here is how Rick Warren describes his music:

“At Saddleback Church we are unapologetically contemporary….And right after we made that decision and stopped trying to please everybody, Saddleback exploded with growth ….  We are loud. We are really, really loud…. We’re not gonna turn it down….Baby boomers want to feel the music, not just hear it.”

Warren has also said this:

“To insist that all good music came from Europe 200 years ago, there’s a name for that – racism… Encourage members to re-arrange and re-write.”

Rick has also stated:

“There is no such a thing as ‘Christian music,’ only Christian lyrics.”

The baby boomers are now in the age bracket of 41 to 63, and financially they are the ones holding the money in the United States. As a result, they can break or make a church, a new consumer product, including the housing market. Their taste and desire drives the consumer market when it comes to clothing, automobiles, furniture, etc. When this new type of music was introduced to the Oklahoma Church there was much complaining from the congregation. This was solved temporarily by designating a traditional service at 9AM and a modern (rock-n-roll) service at 10:30AM.

PURPOSE DRIVEN BIBLES

Rick Warren’s favorite version of the Bible is “The Message.” It is based upon the corrupt Greek text fabricated by the two British clergymen at the end of the 1800s, who were heavily involved in the occult. All current American Bible versions, except the King James Bible, are based on a text concocted by two renegade priests, who denied Jesus’ divinity and virgin birth. All modern translations of the Bible can be termed as “concept translations,” since they are not translated verbatim, but give the reader a basic idea of the message the writer was trying to convey. By using these sloppy translations, the ministers and leaders in the Purpose Driven movement can make the Bible say things that are not true but fit the doctrine these men are devising. These different Bible versions were now introduced to the Southern Baptist Church in Oklahoma City.

PURPOSE DRIVEN DOLLARS

There is an old saying, “follow the money trail and you will find the boss.” Any venture on this earth must have money to exist and grow, including churches and Christian mission organizations or foundations.

When God set up his church system under the First Covenant, the priests (Levites) were forbidden to hold property or engage in business; they were to be financed by the eleven tribes, in order for them to concentrate on their priestly duties. (Deuteronomy 10:8-9; 12:19; 14:27) This financing system is known as tithing. (Malachi 3:6-12)

The system of tithing was given by God for the express purpose that the priests would not corrupt themselves in greedy business deals. Jesus did not abandon the tithing system. (Matthew 23:23; Luke 11:42) The apostle Paul made it clear that those who preach the Gospel should also live off the Gospel. (1 Corinthians 9:9-14)

In the Dancing around the Golden Calf series, I have shown how wealthy Zionistic Jews financed Cyrus Scofield (right), who eventually became the father of the American Christian Zionists, also known as Dispensationalists. These American Jews were not saved and totally detested Christianity, yet over a hundred years ago they invested millions of dollars into the development of Christian churches and outreaches. Why? The answer is that they had an agenda to establish a political state of Israel, and in order to do so, they needed the support of evangelical churches. This would later also include Christian radio and television programming. Thus the Jewish leadership was willing to compromise and build up their arch enemy in order to get something much more valuable back in the future.

History shows that their policy worked and the state of Israel was formed in 1948 with staunch support of American Christians. However, once the goal was achieved, the Jewish Zionistic leadership knew that they needed to trim back Christianity and in time destroy it totally. As a result, since 1948, rising stars within the Christian faith have been selected and targeted.

BILLY GRAHAM – THE PUPPET

One of the most obvious and famous investments took place in the fall of 1949, when newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst (right) was given orders to push Billy Graham, who up to this time had been a relatively unknown evangelist with Youth for Christ. Billy Graham held a tent revival in Los Angeles called “Christ for Greater Los Angeles.” The famous quote from Hearst that was sent via teleprinter to his newspaper headquarters in Los Angeles read “Puff Graham.” In less than 24 hours the Associated Press had picked up on it and reporters and photographers swarmed the tent meeting site; from that moment Billy Graham became a household name in the United States.

During the first few years there were no visible dividends for the Devil and the Jewish Zionist leaders, but with time Billy Graham became a great asset in their hands. The fact cannot be denied that Graham was responsible for millions of unbelievers having become born again, I am one of them, but that was a price the Devil and the Jewish Zionists were willing to pay. They also used Graham to bridge the gap between the Roman Catholic Church and the Protestants, by continuing the slow destruction of doctrine, including the introduction of numerous new Bible versions. In his later years, Graham has publicly stated that a person can be a Buddhist or Muslim and still go to heaven.

Billy Graham served his master’s well and became a frequent visitor to the White House, advising presidents on foreign policies and also making numerous trips overseas and meeting with national leaders behind closed doors telling them what they should do in order to be favored by the American government. He also promoted the political state of Israel, and since Billy Graham is for Israel, hundreds of thousands of Americans joined forces with him.

Rick Warren is going in the same direction, getting more and more involved in foreign policies and meeting with different Heads of State.
