On a number of occasions in the past I have addressed the issue of SCIENTOLOGY and my articles can be accessed on these links –

and

SCIENTOLOGY opens a ‘CATHEDRAL’ IN FLORIDA

Over recent weeks there have been a number of articles published and programmes aired on TV and Radio that related to SCIENTOLOGY and for information purposes Ithought it would be helpful to give details of how to access them. 

The first relates to the purchase of a large building in Birmingham in the UK which will be the HQ for that area and this is the link that gives details on this –

CARL LENTZ: HILLSONG NYC: ‘Take Heed’

  [PDF]

CARL LENTZ of HILLSONG NYC is the subject of a very helpful article for which I will give the link. This man is DANGEROUS to the cause of the Lord Jesus Christ as you will discern from the excerpts of interviews he has given on a number of occasions.

One of those interviews is with Oprah Winfrey and in the earlier interview segments Mr Lentz reminded me of someone who is now a close friend of Ms Winfrey, namely Rob Bell – why does Mr Lentz remind me of him – for these reasons – (a) when asked a question he uses lots of words but never really addresses the issue clearly and authentically biblically, he’s like a bar of soap in the shower, he slithers about and (b) at the conclusion of his interview he goes on and on about ‘God’ and ‘love’ and of course that was the dominating theme of Rob Bell’s book ‘Love wins’ that basically promoted unscriptural and heretical universalism.

BENNY HINN to visit Belfast – AGAIN!

   [PDF]

I have sadly just learned that BENNY HINN is due to be speaking again in Belfast (24th – 25th November). Details of the visit can be accessed on

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/belfast-for-christ-guest-speaker-pastor-benny-hinn-tickets-34842521921

In recent times, no less a person that Benny Hinn’s nephew, COSTI HINN has been telling of how he used to work for a time for his uncle’s‘ministry’ (as a ‘catcher’).

However, following a genuine conversion, Costi eventually disassociated himself from the teachings of ‘Benny Hinn Ministries’ (and other like-minded ‘ministries’). Recently he has spent time giving interviews and telling of how he came to that point and he has been graciously, but resolutely exposing the unbiblical nature of what is taught in ‘Word of Faith’’ circles.

The intrinsic nature of Islam by former Muslim, Magdi Allam

  [PDF]

On Monday 12th March 2007 I gave a talk to an assembled meeting of Presbyterian Ruling Elders from various congregations in Co Antrim in Northern Ireland. I chose to speak to them on the subject of ‘Islam’ as of course the Islamic presence in Northern Ireland is growing steadily. In November of this year (2008) I was once more in the company of one of the elders who had organised the invitation for me to speak and he told me that in the wake of my talk he had received a phone call from a female ‘ruling elder’ that had been in attendance at the meeting. She wanted to express her concern at the approach I had taken in my talk and felt that I was suffering from and promoting Islamophobia.

EVOLUTION: Rejected by God’s Word

  [PDF]

My finalisation of this article is very timely in the light of a programme being broadcast on BBC 2 television this very evening. It is going out at 9.00 pm and is titled ‘The Day the Dinosaurs Died’.

In the listing for it we read ‘Documentary examining the asteroid strike 66 million years ago’.

In a separate write-up promoting it we read ‘’What really caused dinosaurs to disappear from the face of the earth, 66 million years ago? In this documentary, Alice Roberts and Ben Garrod catch up with an international scientific expedition that is revealing startling new evidence about one of the most mysterious vanishing acts in our planet’s history’.

The BBC are of course the consummate cheer-leaders for ‘Big-Bang’, ‘Old-Earth’ and ‘Evolution’ (annoyingly at our expense) so don’t be expecting any support for the truth of God’s wonderful 6-day creation as revealed to us in His Word, the Bible.

A Total Eclipse of the Sun

  [PDF]

On Sunday 7th March 2010 a new series began on BBC 2 Television called ‘Wonders of the Solar System’ (repeated again the following Tuesday). This was how this new series was described in the Daily Mail TV guide –

‘New Series: The galaxy’s role in creating some of Earth’s most spectacular landscapes. It seems the BBC is in educational mode; no sooner has ‘How Earth Made Us’ come to an end, than a majestic new, five-part series slots into the science section of the curriculum. Pop star turned physicist Professor Brian Cox explains how the laws of nature have shaped the worlds beyond our planet, starting with the sun’.

Bahaism

  [PDF]

One of the ‘gaps’ to date on the ‘Take Heed’ ministry web site has been any meaningful reference to the subject of ‘BAHA’ISM’ so with this article I hope to rectify that situation. The format of the article will be firstly to give a link to an informative documentary dating back to 1985.

There are two aspects of the documentary that I have specifically identified. There is ‘Persecution’ and that highlights the terrible persecution that Baha’is had to endure in the aftermath of the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran that deposed the Shah and saw the return to the country and to power of Ayatollah Khomeini. There are helpful details concerning these events on this link –

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iranian_Revolution

and under a section headed ‘Politics and government’ – we read this –

‘The members of the Bahá’í Faith have been declared heretical and subversive. While persecution occurred before the Revolution since then more than 200 Bahá’ís have been executed or presumed killed, and many more have been imprisoned, deprived of jobs, pensions, businesses, and educational opportunities. Bahá’í holy places have been confiscated, vandalized, or destroyed. More recently, Bahá’ís in Iran have been deprived of education and work. Several thousand young Bahá’ís between the ages of 17 and 24 have been expelled from universities’.

Today’s Psychic Fare

TODAY’S PSYCHIC FAYRE

  [PDF]

In recent weeks, posters were displayed along a route that I quite often drive along. These posters were advertising an event to be held in a hotel located along that same route. This is a photo of one of the posters –

This link gives details of what those attending might have expected to see

It goes without saying that there is great interest in such matters and people in attendance often view it as ‘fantastic’ and ‘unbelievable’.

‘EUCHARISTIC MIRACLE’ in Amsterdam?

‘EUCHARISTIC MIRACLE’ in Amsterdam?

 [PDF]

Many years ago, friends and fellow-contenders living in The Netherlands sent me videos of a large 1998 gathering held by Rome in Holland to celebrate ‘Mary: Lady of all Nations’. This is just one of the many baseless and unscriptural titles ascribed by the Roman Catholic religion to Mary. In this article, I want to focus upon a claimed ‘Eucharistic Miracle’ that is detailed in the opening portion of the first video and so to begin with here is a link to enable you to watch that portion of the video –

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROWr2lpEysc

Having watched the video, you perhaps now understand why I included the phrase ‘Hard to stomach!’ as a subtitle to this article. This supposed ‘miracle’ centres totally around the claim that a sick man, who had received a Roman Catholic ‘consecrated wafer’, later vomited it up and, despite having been thrown in the fire, it refused to be destroyed but instead was ‘reconstituted’ and ‘danced’ above the flames of the fire next morning.

Joyce Meyer and Healing

Joyce Meyer and ‘Healing’

  [PDF]

This item was first published in the September 2003 issue of ‘News from the Front’

http://www.takeheed.info/news-from-the-front-september-2003/

From Thursday 29 May until Saturday 31 May 2003, Joyce Meyer ‘ministered’ in The King’s Hall Exhibition and Conference Centre, Belfast. A note on her web site mentioned ‘Joyce’s Product Tables will be open two hours prior to each meeting. Come early!’ I have drawn attention to this statement because in this article I want to deal with something that was included in an advert promoting several of ‘Joyce’s Products’.

In her ‘Life in The Word’ newsletter for April 2003 there was a half-page advert for a 4-tape series on ‘Healing’ and for a 144-page Mini-book called ‘Be Healed In Jesus’ Name’. In the body text of the advert we read ‘We have been given assurance in God’s Word that He is the Healer and it is His will to heal everyone’.
