THE DESTRUCTION OF THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION

John S. Torell

 

 

(continued from previous page)

 

RUPERT MURDOCH

The name Rupert Murdoch (right) keeps popping up when a person begins to dig into the financial dealings of Rick Warren and the Saddleback church. For a number of years I have been telling people that the major Christian publishing houses in the United States have been taken over by wealthy Jews. One of these publishing houses is Zondervan, the one which is responsible for publishing “The Purpose Driven Life.”

Following the money trail, I investigated Zondervan. It was founded in 1931, in the suburb of Grandville, Michigan, by two brothers, Pat and Bernard Zondervan (left). The two boys were nephews to William Eerdmans, who in turn owned a Christian publishing house.

Pat Zondervan (right) became known as a dispensationalist and a strong opponent of Communism. Hal Lindsey’s book “The Late Great Planet Earth,” was published by Zondervan and became one of their bestsellers. During the Nixon presidency, Pat and a number of evangelical leaders in the United States received briefings by Henry Kissinger, Nixon’s Secretary of State and a German born Jew. I am not going to comment on this but pose a question: Why did President Nixon order these briefings to evangelical Christian leaders?

 But Zondervan was not a true evangelical publishing house; it was really the vehicle for the destruction of the Bible in the United States. In 1959, it published the liberal “Berkley Version,” followed by the “Amplified” version in 1965, the New International Version (NIV) of the New Testament in 1973 and the complete NIV Bible in 1978. Zondervan has currently published a number of books by New Age writers.

Zondervan is the publishing house for Rick Warren and, “The Purpose Driven Life,” which was released in October 2002. This book has sold more than one million copies, which together with other books by Rick has brought in more than 500 million dollars. As of 2007, some 30 million copies of Warren’s books have been sold and the marketing for more sales continues.

Pat Zondervan sold the publishing house in 1988 to a division of Harper/Collins Publishers, which in turn is owned by Rupert Murdoch. Bernard Zondervan had died of cancer in 1966 and Pat died in 1993. This leads us to Rupert Murdoch, a member of Saddleback Church where Rick Warren is the pastor and not afraid to brag that he is Rupert’s pastor.

THE HOLDINGS OF RUPERT MURDOCH

Rupert Murdoch was born in Australia in 1931 to wealthy parents Keith and Elisabeth Murdoch. His father was in the newspaper business and controlled a number of them. According to statistics from 2004, Rupert controlled the following corporations: His TV satellite service (BSkyB), which delivers programs to five continents. He owns 175 newspapers and was a fierce competitor to Robert Maxwell (right), a British Jewish media tycoon, to see who would control the media in Britain. At first it looked like Maxwell was going to crowd him out but because Maxwell was murdered by the Mossad, Murdoch won by default. For more information on Robert Maxwell, see the February 2001 newsletter. Rupert owns 35 television stations in the United States and reaches 40% of the U.S. market. On September 4, 1985, Murdoch became an American citizen in order to satisfy the legal requirement that only American citizens can own television stations in the United States.

He has taken on Ted Turner (right) and CNN and launched his own cable network, known as the Fox Network. Rupert is a major television mogul in Asia and has news offices in Singapore, China, India, Pakistan, Vietnam and a number of other nations feeding his Asian satellite system. In 2003, Rupert purchased 34% in Hughes Electronics, which operates the DIRECTV satellite system.

In July 2005, Murdoch’s main corporation, News Corp, bought Intermix Media Inc., which was the parent company for MySpace.com and a number of other social networking websites. In 2005, Rupert bought IGN Entertainment. Murdoch has also established himself in Turkey through purchasing the Turkish television channel TGRT. In 2007 he purchased Dow Jones, the owner of the Wall Street Journal. 

SUMMARY ON RUPERT

Rupert Murdoch is not a lightweight person; he wields enormous power through his television networks, newspapers and publishing of books. It is estimated that Rick Warren has brought in more than 500 million dollars to Zondervan through book sales. Murdoch can make or break a political candidate running for office in the nations which he operates. The catch phrase you hear on Fox News is “fair and balanced,” but this is not true, it’s just a propaganda phrase repeated over and over again until people think that Fox News is actually fair and balanced. This is nothing but propaganda of the worst kind.

RUPERT MURDOCH IS JEWISH

After having come this far in my investigation of Rupert Murdoch, I wanted to know more about his family and background. No person on earth today can attain such wealth and power unless they are Jewish but all the information about him indicated that he was an Australian.

It turns out that Rupert’s mother was the daughter of a wealthy Jewish family in England. Her father’s name was Rupert Greene, who was a practicing Orthodox Jew. In 1928, Keith Murdoch married Elisabeth Joy Greene, and the union produced four children, Keith Rupert and three girls. As an adult, Keith Rupert dropped his first name, and made his first name the same as his maternal grandfather. According to Jewish law, if a child has a Jewish mother, the child is considered Jewish. As his wealth accumulated, Keith Murdoch was able to purchase the title “Sir.” Rupert Murdoch became a strong supporter of Zionism, all while trying to hide the fact that he himself was of Jewish origin. He has been using the New York Post newspaper to promote and raise support for the State of Israel.

It got more bizarre as I entered deeper into the murky waters surrounding Rupert Murdoch and Rick Warren. I believe that the Christians in the United States and the world must know what the key players in the world are doing and what harm they are causing.

TRUTH STRANGER THAN FICTION

There is a Zionist network made up of super rich Jews from around the world who are working the financial aspect in the Zionist agenda. Rupert Murdoch is heavily involved with these people and here is just a short sample of their activities:

Murdoch has membership in the following Zionistic organizations: United Jewish Appeal (UJA), Anti-Defamation League (ADL), and the New York based Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. The UJA is a billion dollar Zionist charity organization to which Murdoch has been very generous. The ADL has a dinner committee which plans fundraising dinners, and Henry Kissinger, Rupert Murdoch and Mortimer Zuckerman are among the key members on this committee. Mortimer Zuckerman is the editor-in-chief of the U.S. News & World Report.

Ariel Sharon (right) was a close friend with Rupert Murdoch long before Sharon became the Prime Minister of Israel. During the Lebanon war in 1982, Murdoch and several of his newspaper editors from New York and London flew to Israel where they were given a special guided tour in an Israeli army helicopter flying over the Golan Heights, the West Bank and settlements in the Gaza strip. The result was a number of nice write-ups in Murdoch’s newspapers on the future need for Israel to hold on and develop these territories in order to give security to Israel.

It is noteworthy to remind the reader, that the Israeli government, during this war in Lebanon, was embarrassed by the press releases of the civilian massacres in camps around Beirut, so they invited Jimmy Swaggart and a group from his church to come to Israel and do some special seminars which were later televised in the United States in defense of Israel’s actions in Lebanon.

RICK WARREN – RUPERT’S PASTOR

Since Rick Warren claims that he is Murdoch’s pastor, it doesn’t sound quite right for a Southern Baptist minister being the pastor of a Jew, who has not professed Christ as his Lord and Saviour and is a leading purveyor in promoting pornography and a low moral lifestyle via his media empire; that also includes some of the tabloids you will find at the checkout counters at your local supermarket.

Rupert has not lived a moral and upright life, even according to Judaism. He has been married three times; he married his first wife Patricia Booker in 1956, who was a former airline stewardess. They had one child together, a daughter named Prudence who was born in 1958. He divorced her in 1967 and in the same year married Anna Torv, an Estonian born journalist in training at his newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, in Australia. This marriage produced three children, Elizabeth (born in Australia 1968), Lachlan (born in England 1971) and James (also born in England in 1972). After a bitter divorce in 1999, Anna received a settlement of $1.2 billion in assets. Less than three weeks after the divorce, Rupert now 68 years old married a 30 year old Chinese woman by the name of Wendi Deng. She was working for his Star television network. This third marriage has produced two children so far, Grace (2001) and Chloe (2003), both born in the United States.

Lachland Murdoch James Murdoch Wendi Deng

It is interesting to note that Wendi Deng is a Chinese citizen, who was running the Star television network out of Hong Kong. Hong Kong has been under Communist control since 1997. Murdoch was given permission to build a 22,000 square foot home for his wife in Beijing (Peking), China. Deng has become one of the major business players in China, this is only possible if a person is lined up with the Communist party and toes the party line.

Rupert Murdoch’s oldest son Lachland was the chief operating officer for News Corp (the holding corporation for the empire) and the publisher of the New York Post until he fell out of grace with his father and resigned in 2005. His brother James Murdoch was appointed News Corp’s chairperson and chief executive for Europe and Asia in December, 2007. According to business news commentators, James is going to take over the reign of the Murdoch Empire because Rupert is going to retire. As of 2007, Rupert is 76 years old.

Compare this to what happened some 107 years ago when Cyrus Scofield was in the prime of his national ministry. In 1902 he was a member of the Lotus Club in New York, which was connected to the Illuminati. Among his good Jewish friends and money backers were Samuel Untermeyer (who held the post as chairman of the American Jewish Committee (AJC); Jacob Schiff, the main financier of the Bolshevik revolution in Russia in 1917; Bernard Baruch, an American Jewish banker; Samuel Gompers, a British born Jew who moved to the United States and became president of the American Federation of Labor (now known as AFL-CIO). Cyrus Scofield laid the foundation of dispensationalism which gave birth to the Christian Zionist Movement. For more details, see the Jan-Mar 2007 newsletter.

Samuel Untermeyer Jacob Schiff Samuel Gompers

Rick Warren is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. The money he receives comes from two sources: sales and wealthy Jews and their foundations. He has a good friend in Rupert Murdoch; a leading Jew in the World Government and Rick is now in the process of destroying Southern Baptist Churches, including other evangelical churches, while the Jewish Zionistic leadership is dancing for joy.

CORPORATION SADDLEBACK

Rick Warren has learned well from his masters, Robert Schuller and Rupert Murdoch. As of 2005, according to statistics released by Warren’s public relations office, there are 60,000 pastors from around the world subscribing to his e-mail newsletter. Each week, there are thousands of pastors ordering Warren’s $4 sermon outlines. These pastors no longer are praying and seeking God for a message to their congregations, instead, they are fed what the speech writers at Saddleback are concocting. This is very similar to the Jehovah’s Witnesses mode of operating. There is also a website content, where services from Saddleback can be downloaded and shown on large screens in churches around the world. Not to mention all the seminars with a hefty price, where tens of thousands of pastors and lay leaders are trained to think, talk, walk, dress and essentially become Rick Warren clones. 

In 1949 William Hearst said, “Puff Graham.” In the late 1900s Rupert Murdoch said, “Puff Warren.”

What did Jesus say?

 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24)

The apostle John said:

“I have written unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I have written unto you, young men, because ye are strong, and the word of God abideth in you, and ye have overcome the wicked one. Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest that they were not all of us.” (1 John 2:14-19)

RICK WARREN’S VISION

What would Warren like to see happen in the future? Read his words for yourself:

“The greatest challenge churches will face over the next five years is developing and adapting our ministry methods to the massive needs of the 21st century. We can’t just keep on ‘doing it the way we’ve always done it.’….We must start thousands of new churches and services. It will take new churches to reach a new generation…We must develop a clear, practical strategy….If we don’t, thousands of churches are going to close up for good. This doesn’t have to happen…Thousands of pastors and church leaders have attended the Purpose Driven Church seminars…The secret of reaching unbelievers is learning to think like an unbeliever. The problem is, the longer you’re a Christian, the less you think like an unbeliever. You have to intentionally learn to think like an unbeliever again…such as changing the way you greet visitors, the style of music you use, the translation you preach from …”

RICK WARREN IS PREACHING ANOTHER GOSPEL

            In a Christian Business Men’s Committee newsletter from December 22, 2003, Warren explained what salvation meant to him:

“…What we need most is salvation – so God sent us a Saviour. What is ‘salvation’? It’s forgiveness for my past,…power to manage my present problems,…and a guarantee for my future.”

This kind of thinking is from Robert Schuller, positive thinking. Man is his own saviour. The Bible tells us that it is “Christ in us” not “us in Christ.” We are saved from our sins, not from the past; our future is to be with Christ in heaven, not to continue to live on this earth. The more I read what Warren writes, the more I understand why renegade Jews like Rupert Murdoch have no problem hanging around Rick Warren since he has more or less taken Christ out of Christianity.

Warren has carefully crafted protection against people that come against him. On page 164 of “The Purpose Driven Life” he says the following:

“God warns us over and over again not to criticize, compare, or judge each other…Whenever I judge another believer, four things instantly happen: I lose fellowship with God, I expose my own pride, I set myself up to be judged by God, and I harm the fellowship of the church.”

Furthermore, Warren requires his church members to sign a covenant in which they promise to protect the unity of the church (pg. 167, The Purpose Driven Life). Fear is injected into people by telling them that they may not question anything that happens at Saddleback; unity must be protected at all costs. If someone breaks this ungodly oath, Warren says that God will withdraw from them. This is the same tactic used by the Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses and the renegade minister Jim Jones, who in the early 1980s was able to sway more than 900 people of his congregation to commit suicide together at his Jonestown complex.

In an interview on the “Larry King Live,” Rick Warren likened biblical fundamentalists to Muslim extremists and atheistic secularists. This is what he said:

”There are all kinds of fundamentalists, Larry, and they are all based on fear. There are Christian fundamentalists. There are Muslim Fundamentalists. I’ve met some Jewish fundamentalists. You know that there are secular fundamentalists. They’re all based on fear. Secular fundamentalists are afraid of God.”

Warren uses very clever propaganda and puts fear in the rank and file of his followers if they try to defend biblical truth by labeling them as fundamentalists who should be compared to crazed Islamic suicide bombers calling for jihad (holy war). I have studied the tactics of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin and how they dealt with their opposition and I see no difference with what Rick Warren does by demonizing any person who opposes him.

It gets worse. In an appearance before the Pew Forum in May 2005, Rick Warren predicted a “New Reformation” or a “Third Great Awakening“ for America:

“You know, 500 years ago, the first Reformation with Luther and then Calvin, was about beliefs. I think a new reformation is going to be about behavior. The first Reformation was about creeds; I think this one will be about deeds…The First Reformation actually split Christianity into dozens and then hundreds of different segments. I think this one is actually going to bring them together. Now, you’re never going to get Christians, of all their stripes and varieties to agree on all of the different doctrinal disputes and things like that, but what I am seeing them agree on are the purposes of the church…

Last week I spoke to 4,000 pastors at my church who came from over 100 denominations in over 50 countries. Now, that’s widespread. We had Catholic priests, we had Pentecostal ministers, we had Lutheran bishops, we had Anglican bishops, we had Baptist preachers. They’re all there together and you know what? I’d never get them to agree on communion or baptism or a bunch of stuff like that, but I could get them to agree on what the church should be doing in the world.”

Rick Warren is a paid piper promoting a One World Church that will control the religious thinking of all people someday. He is doing a great job for his Jewish Zionistic handlers and I’m sure they are very pleased with this man.

In an interview on July 21, 2003 with USA Today, Rick Warren refers to Billy Graham as his model. Warren said:

“I’m not going to get into a debate over non-essentials. I won’t try to change other denominations. Why be divisive?

Bruce Ryskamp, president of Zondervan Publishing House and a spokesperson for Rupert Murdoch summed up perfectly what the Zionist Jews think of Rick Warren:

“The Purpose Driven Life is more than a bestseller; it’s become a movement.”

BUILDING ON THE YOUTH

As I have studied world history for the last 40 years, I have seen a common denominator in all revolutionary movements and dictatorships. The leaders in these groups all know that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” Rick Warren is following the same path as other leaders in the past, bypassing the old-timers and focusing on the youth.

When President Ronald Reagan busted the Air Traffic Controller union back in the early 1980s, the whole nation sat back in a shock. A federal rule prohibited the union from going on strike, and when they proclaimed a strike, the president with a stroke of his pen fired the entire network of air traffic controller and replaced them with supervisors and military controllers. New people were hired and a rapid training program was set up, so that in a short time, the Federal Air Traffic Control System was up and running.

            This is precisely how Rick Warren is training pastors and church leaders in his seminars: Get rid of the opposition! This is step six in his development plan on how to “deal with the opposition.” Here is how he explains it in his seminars:

“Be willing to let people leave the church. And I told you earlier the fact that people are gonna leave the church no matter what you do. But when you define the vision, you’re choosing who leaves. You say, ’But Rick, yes, they’re the pillars of the church.’ Now, you know what pillars are. Pillars are people who hold things up…And in your church, you may have to have some blessed subtractions before you have real additions.”

Warren and his handlers know that solid Bible believers who have walked with God for many years are not going to accept the new music, the bastard Bibles and a new doctrine. They also know that it doesn’t matter how many seminars they give for the old timers, they’re just not going to buy into it. Thus, there is only one plan, force the old timers to leave through dirty church politics.

One important thing that Warren neglects to mention to his wannabe clones is that the rigid old timers they are trying to force out are the tithers and financial supporters in the church. For the most part, young people are selfish and do not tithe. As a result, many small churches which are infected with the Purpose Drive virus do not survive. When these unyielding pillars are gone, there is no income and the church eventually folds. This is precisely why Rupert Murdoch and his Jewish friends are investing their money into the Rick Warren Corporation, destruction of the churches.

The Southern Baptist Church in Oklahoma did not fare well once the Purpose Driven virus was forced upon the church. At the time the virus hit the church, it had a membership between three to four thousand people. It is now a shadow of its past, and in order to save the church and save his salary, the pastor has gone back to a more traditional type of service. But the damage is done, people were offended and hurt and many of them will not darken a church door again, which is another victory for the Devil.

WHAT’S NEXT FOR RICK WARREN?

Rick and his wife Kay have set up three foundations in order to avoid being hit with huge tax payments. By giving back his salary for the last 25 years to the Saddleback Church, he and his wife avoided paying a huge sum for taxes, and thus they were able to save that money in the corporation, which in turn generates more money in the future.

Foundations have been used by the rich and famous for a long time in the United States, and the beauty of it is that a foundation does not pay any taxes as long as it is a charitable non-profit organization. However, the people working for the foundation can draw salaries, be furnished with homes, cars, airplanes, security services, clothing and food. This is how the Mormon hierarchy lives. If a foundation is declared to be a church, the IRS cannot ask for any financial reports. Thus, the television evangelists and a number of other unscrupulous Christian leaders have their foundations and live high on the hog.

One of the Warren foundations is geared toward social work for people with AIDS and to train pastors how to deal with people with AIDS.

Rick and Kay are part of the One Campaign to reduce world hunger and then there is his latest project the P.E.A.C.E. Plan, urging every local church to be involved in planting churches, fighting poverty and AIDS, and promoting education. There is no talk about presenting these people with the Gospel, telling them that Jesus is the only way and that if you do not accept Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, you will end up in hell and later the Lake of Fire. According to Warren, in order to communicate with a heathen, you have to live and act like one. This doctrine is not found any place in the Bible but it is a standard text in the Devil’s manual for backslidden preachers.

WHAT ABOUT CHARLES STANLEY?

           In Touch Ministries was founded and currently led by Pastor Charles Stanley (right). It is the biggest outreach ministry in the entire Southern Baptist Convention. Pastor Stanley not only is blanketing the United States with his television broadcasts and radio programs but he is reaching a number of nations around the world.

I have been watching and listening to his Sunday morning services for several years and I haven’t seen any deviation from the typical conservative Southern Baptist positions. However, I do have the following complaints about him: He is not a “King James Bible only” preacher and likes to use other versions to a large extent. He is into idolatry like most Christian preachers and does not understand the pagan customs in Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and the Easter Egg hunts on the resurrection day of Jesus.

            Charles Stanley was the president for the Southern Baptist Convention from 1984-86 so he is seasoned in church politics. Some of the former convention presidents made statements about Jewish people and their need to receive Christ with the result that they were forced to publicly recant their statements and apologize to the Jewish community. As a result, Stanley never speaks about Jews and their need to receive Christ; he simply does not talk about this subject, making him safe and acceptable to the Jewish Zionistic leadership. He does not receive good or bad press reports from the Jews, and is not officially on the radar of the ADL and other Jewish watchdog groups. However, there is no doubt in my mind that the Jewish leadership of the World Zionist Movement have done an in-depth investigation of In Touch Ministries and how to destroy it or take control of it once Stanley is no longer able to run it. Remember, Charles Stanley was born in 1932 and will be 76 years old in 2008, so it is just a matter of time before he steps down.

CHARLES STANLEY’S SUCCESSOR

This brings us to his son, Andy Stanley. Andy (right) was born in 1958 and will be 50 years old in 2008. For a number of years he was on the ministry staff at his father’s church until he broke away in the 1990s and founded his own ministry, North Point Ministries. Andy is a baby boomer and pastors three churches with an average attendance of 21,000 people per week. His three churches are North Point Community Church, Buckhead Church and Browns Bridge Community Church. Large high definition screens are used to carry the live broadcast from one church to the other two. In addition, Andy and his staff have started 14 new churches in different places in the United States.

            When Charles Stanley is away from First Baptist Church in Atlanta, the pulpit, most of the time, is filled by his son. Andy looks and dresses a lot like Rick Warren, he even likes to sit on a stool and preach just like Warren. In spite of these similarities, I have not been able to confirm whether or not Andy is part of the Purpose Driven program. However, Andy is moving in the waters of what is called the “Emerging Churches,” which is a hybrid of Bill Hybels’ theology and outlook on what a Christian Church should be today. In an article from the USA Today in 2007, they say the following:

“…Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Ministries in Atlanta, suggested that churches should not focus solely on converting people, as has been the emphasis for generations…

This is what Andy said:

“If we were able to rewrite the script for the reputation of Christianity, I think we would put the emphasis on developing relationships with non-believers, serving them, loving them, and making them feel accepted. Only then would we earn the right to share the gospel.”

            If Andy Stanley takes over In Touch Ministries when his father steps down, there will be a major policy shift. Just like in the Purpose Driven Churches, the pillars supporting the ministry would either have to change their Biblical doctrine or be removed. Most likely a majority of the viewers would stop supporting the ministry since they cannot accept this renegade doctrine.

            I am sure that if Andy takes over in the future, Jewish financiers would be more than happy to step in and shore up the finances of the ministry, since it would be in the interest of the Zionist movement to weaken and destroy any remaining conservative fundamental King James Bible thumping Christians. After all, Andy is not out trying to evangelize the heathens but cultivate and be their friend. If they approve, Andy will feel that he has earned the right to share the Gospel with them; he might do so but in a seeker-friendly (churchianity) setting.

To put it bluntly, Charles Stanley is calling for sinners to be saved and keep people from going to hell while his son Andy is trying to make the sinner feel good on his way to hell. The question is, how smart is Charles Stanley and is he willing to lay aside his emotions and block his son Andy from taking over the ministry?

HOW CLOSELY ARE JEWS WATCHING THE CHRISTIANS?

            In closing this newsletter, I want to insert a short article found in the Sacramento Bee during the month of December, 2007. Read it and let it speak to you.

Jews seek meeting with reporter

Published 12:00 am PST Friday, December 7, 2007

SACRAMENTO – Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region leaders said Thursday they want to meet with Channel 3 reporter Adrienne Bankert, in the wake of comments she made about Jews in a recent talk to students at Sacramento State.

“What we're going to try to do is have a personal meeting,” said Michal Kohane, executive director of the Jewish Federation of the Sacramento Region.

Kohane said they want to meet with Bankert to try to educate her.

Bankert told a Christian organization on the California State University, Sacramento, campus that she has “never met a poor Jewish person ever in my life” and opined about how Jews founded Hollywood and were prominent in banking.

She later issued a statement, saying in part, “I apologize if anyone was offended by my remarks.”

-- END OF ARTICLE --

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

You have just read an introduction to another apostate movement called, “The Purpose Driven Life.” Many of you reading this newsletter have heard about it but do not know much about it. I was in the same position until I read “Deceived on Purpose” by Warren Smith. I decided that I needed more education, and when Noah Hutchings book was sent to us for review, I read it and realized that the denomination I was raised in and with whom I hold my Gospel license and ordination papers is being destroyed from within by a spiritual cancer.

My recommendation is that you purchase these two books and set aside at least two weeks to read them and take notes. Take the information you have been given in this newsletter and look through search engines on the Internet, you will find to your horror that what I have told you is true.

Once you have been educated, you can pray fervently and ask God to destroy this movement. You will also be able to warn people about it and ask anyone involved in this movement if they are willing to look at the facts, see what the Bible says, and then get out of it. There is also the possibility that you are a member of a Purpose Driven church and have not understood with what you are involved, especially if you are a younger person. Educate yourself and make a decision based on facts, not emotions.

Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life is a demonic driven program and it is just as deceptive and captivating as Mormonism or the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Education and spiritual warfare against this doctrine is the only answer. Look at these Bible references:

“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;” (1 Timothy 4:1-2)

“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)

“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-9)

DO YOU HAVE AN EAR WITH WHICH TO HEAR?
