Is Calvary Chapel a cult? What is wrong? How Calvary Chapel adds to the Bible…

Have you ever had a strange feeling in your gut about Calvary Chapel? If so, you will want to read this (it has been my most-viewed article). You walk into the church on a Sunday morning.

Fear tactics at church: The Code of Silence in the Assembly and spiritual abuse…

Code of Silence Please click on the above link. Make sure your church does not have a “Code of Silence”. If it does, you are at an unbiblical church.  A brief excerpt: “My family and I recently had the experience of leaving, after 17 years of involvement, what would, by some, be termed an abusive church. I use the term “abuse” to describe what happens when leaders, in the name of God, the Bible, and with false spiritual authority, seek to meet their own needs, or the needs of a cause, at… Read More
