THE CHURCH : Satan’s Sustained Subversion
On 19th March 2013 Dr E S Williams (author of the excellent book ‘The New Calvinists: Changing the Gospel’) gave a very informative, enlightening and topical talk on how Satan has been continually seeking to subvert the truth of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In his talk he charts the impact upon the true Gospel of the likes of ‘Higher Criticism’, ‘New Evangelicalism’, ‘The Church Growth Movement’, ‘The Purpose Driven Movement’, ‘The Lausanne Movement’ and ‘The Emerging Church Movement’.
Dr Williams identifies key figures who have been involved in this sustained subversion – people like Norman Vincent Peale, Robert Schuller, Billy Graham, John Stott, Rick Warren, Tim Keller, and Mark Driscoll to name but some.
DAVID ICKE – A Christ-rejecting fantasist
Whilst recently converting a short TV interview that I had on video tape (of Tony Campolo on a local TV programme called ‘Kelly’) I came across another interview from another ‘Kelly’ programme that aired some two weeks later on 25th March 1994. In this case the person being interviewed was DAVID ICKE. This is a man who used to present sports programmes on TV and then gave it all up to share his own peculiar views and philosophy.
This article is made up of the following
1. My FACEBOOK post of 21st September 2016
2. Selected comments in response to it
3. A link to a TV appearance made by Mr Campolo here in Northern Ireland on 4th March 1994
Dear Friends of ‘Take Heed’,
As we seek to improve the website we are currently moving some of the older articles over into the new site. Every time a new article is posted into the new site you will receive an e-mail.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

So, TONY CAMPOLO has ‘come out’ and declared that he no longer views himself as an ‘Evangelical Christian’. Well at least he’s acknowledging what he never was and what in my view he probably currently is not.
I have drawn attention to the unscriptural and spiritually dangerous beliefs held by this man on a number of occasions and herewith are links to those warnings.

TATTOOS : ‘To do or not to do?’
Today I received and email inquiry concerning the subject of ‘TATTOOS’ – the practice of adding these ink markings to human bodies has to be honest reached ‘epidemic’ proportions. So how do we as Christians react to this current fad? Well, herewith is a copy of the email I received together with a copy of my reply and I hope it may be helpful to fellow Christians if asked about this subject.
A recent edition of the BBC’s ‘Songs of Praise’ contained a short feature on the famous authoress Beatrix Potter and what caught my attention was the reference made to the fact that she was a UNITARIAN. A few days prior to the broadcast marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Beatrix Potter and helpful information can be found on this article
This is a religious grouping that I have rarely made mention of in my writings and so this article seeks to address that ‘omission’.
Whilst there are some officially designated ‘Unitarian’ churches in Ireland, here in Northern Ireland another group of churches that would closely ‘fit the description’ of UNITARIAN would be those of the Non-Subscribing Presbyterian Church (One of these churches – ‘All Souls’ in Elmwood Avenue in Belfast regularly hosts a ‘service’ for the LGBT community on the day after their ‘Pride Parade’ through Belfast – details for 2016 can be seen on http://www.belfastpride.com/events/annual-pride-service-2/).
Understanding Mormon Vocabulary
Over the past year, in articles that I have been publishing on the ministry web site, I have included the text of some tracts that were written and published in the early years of ‘Take Heed’ Ministries.
These articles have related to PURGATORY, CHRISTIAN SCIENCE, THE HARE KRISHNAS, YOGA, THE NEW AGE MOVEMENT and JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES and JESUS.
The relevant articles for these can be accessed on –
This article will include the text of the remaining tract published in those early days of ‘Take Heed’ Ministries and it was titled ‘’Understanding Mormon Vocabulary’. One of the difficulties with assessing the views of differing religious groupings such as ‘The Mormons’ is that they use vocabulary that is familiar to true Christians but the problem is that they actually define that vocabulary in distinctly scripturedenying or scripture-contradicting terms.
Ministry Update Letter : January 2016 – June 2016
Dear praying friends and supporters of ‘Take Heed’,
Sincere greetings once more in His precious and worthy name. Another 6 months of ministry activity have almost passed and once again my time has been fully occupied seeking to alert God’s people to “Take Heed” and to be aware of the many “wolves” seeking to lead them astray. As ever the ministry web and YouTube sites continue to be very much at the forefront of ‘the battle’ and herewith are details of some of the articles etc that have been posted since the beginning of the year.
POPE FRANCIS: MUSLIMS and EUROPE
No one needs to be told that the demographic makeup of the continent of Europe has been changing dramatically and rapidly over the past year or so with the influx (in reality in many cases – the invasion) of huge numbers of ‘migrants’.
Many countries have been severely, and again in many cases, adversely affected by the arrival of these people within their borders and across Europe many countries have already erected or are considering erecting fences on their borders to stop this movement of people.
Pope Francis has often spoken on these matters and has on occasions visited key locations where these ‘migrants’ have been arriving. Many people have been left scratching their heads when they have listened to his comments on this ‘migration’ question so just what exactly is going on?
My good friend Shaun Willcock of Bible Based Ministries closely monitors the activities and strategies of The Vatican and he has just published a very enlightening article that addresses this very question of why Pope Francis is doing and saying what he does on this whole question.
I commend this article to you and it can be accessed on
