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.

ALF McCREARY says The Koran does not sanction violence:

  [PDF]

Monday 22nd May 2017 was a day of murderous infamy in Manchester as a Jihadi suicide bomber blew himself up as a pop concert audience was beginning to leave the Manchester Arena.

ALF McCREARY, the Religious Affairs correspondent of the Belfast Telegraph addressed this atrocity in his column on Saturday 27th May 2017 and in it made a totally ludicrous claim that Jihadi violence is not sanctioned by The Koran.

Having read his article I was moved to post the following on Facebook which demonstrates clearly that Mr McCreary does not know what he is talking (writing) about. This was my post –

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’.

NORMAN VINCENT PEALE: Power to Deceive

NORMAN VINCENT PEALE: Power to Deceive

  [PDF]

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse deceiving and being deceived” 2nd Timothy 3:13

The expressions ‘good’ and ‘evil’ tend in our human thinking to focus on the direct and obvious consequences of actions carried out by people. ‘Good’ actions are those that are viewed as bringing blessing, benefit and joy to people whereas ‘evil’ actions are viewed as bringing misery, loss and hurt to people. In such human circumstances those terms are I believe perfectly apt.

BETH MOORE: Warning resources

BETH MOORE: Warning resources

BETH MOORE: Warning resources

  [PDF]

Some weeks ago I received the following message of inquiry concerning the ‘ministry’ of Beth Moore –

I wonder if you can give insight. In 2008 I was assigned as City Coordinator to bring Beth Moore (prominent well known Bible Study teacher of women) here. 7000 women attended as it was Beth’s first time in Canada and many had not heard of her.

She is coming back in January 2017. However, I find myself in a place that I cannot stand behind her teachings (some of them false as she has changed substantially from 2008 till now) – such as shaking hands whole heartedly with Catholicism, receives “extra” revelation, believes in silence meditation (eastern type) etc.

DAVID ICKE : A Christ-rejecting fantasist

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.
