Is Sozo a cult? What is Sozo? A look at the new Scientology, Bethel Church, Bill Johnson and the new age…

A while back, I wrote about Sozo being more dangerous than Scientology.  In a nutshell, Sozo is more cleverly disguised than Scientology. TruNews provides an audio discussion at the link below. Below, Rick Wiles of TruNews describes Sozo: https://www.trunews.com/article/is-sozo-prayer-warmed-up-scientology New Age churches such as Bethel in Redding California are teaching people to vibrate and get into harmony with God and the universe.  They are also anticipating audibly hearing a new sound from Heaven.  And a popular craze currently circulating in many Charismanic churches – especially Bethel – is something called Sozo Prayer. … Read More

NEWS: CA mega-church has a fit over proposed conversion therapy legislation

http://www.slowlyboiledfrog.com/2018/03/ca-mega-church-has-fit-over-proposed.html The following is an excerpt about Bethel Church from The Slowly Boiled Frog by David Cary Hart: What the folks at Bethel don’t seem to get is that they are embracing a form of conversion therapy that is at odds with every mainstream medical and counseling peer organization. “Professionally-guided” conversion therapy is an oxymoron. While I was at it, an exploration of Bethel Church was in order. The operation, run like a commercial enterprise, consumes a staggering amount of tax-deducted dollars. Receipts and expenditures are a secret known only to highly… Read More

Stay Away from Sozo Prayer! What is sozo? Is sozo a cult or cultic sect? Who is Bill Johnson?

What is sozo?  Is sozo safe?  Is sozo a cult?  Is Bethel Church safe?  Does God still heal and do miracles (I believe he does).  Let’s define sozo and take a deeper look below (click link)… Stay Away from Sozo Prayer!

Alert! Planning on attending the upcoming ‘Built to Last Conference’ with Benny and Wendy Perez in Las Vegas? Read this first! Why does Beni Johnson hug the graves of dead people? Necromancy in the church?

According to a Christian Post article, Benny Perez, pastor of the Church at South Las Vegas, will be hosting a three-day pastors’ conference on November 5-7, 2013. Encouraging you to research before you go. Yesterday, I was investigating Beni Johnson (Bill Johnson’s wife; Bethel Church in Redding, California).  Oddly, she had posted a photo of herself hugging a grave in a cemetery on her Twitter account for many people to see (see photo at the end of this article).  The Bible explicitly warns on the matter of interacting with the dead, sitting… Read More

Escape the Lie, An Interview

Update: For some reason, the link provided is not working as it once did.  Hopefully ‘Escape the Lie Radio’ can fix the problem soon.   Update 2: Use this link instead to listen to interview – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAAqatnhPms&feature=youtu.be Here is a great interview of M’Kayla Kelly by Escape the Lie Ministries. God is using M’Kayla to lovingly inform and warn the Body of Christ of the dangers of a movement that is spreading like wildfire. M’Kayla was once involved in this movement and by God’s grace, she has escaped. This movement has already penetrated… Read More

Proof that there is a similarity between Gnostic teaching and Bethel Church doctrine

Proof that there is a similarity between Gnostic teaching and Bethel Church doctrine

An online question about sozo: What do you observe from this photograph? An interesting discovery…

Update: The photo below is of a ministry by a man named Avi Segal called Healing With the Light.  Christians, please be aware that this is a ministry which is similar to sozo in the testimonials, but this ministry supports the theory of “past lives” as seen in a session with “the light” many years ago, and therefore is unBiblical according to Hebrews 9:27.  Be very alert and test all things!  Even though people claimed nice results after their sessions, it does not mean the ministry is Biblical/Christian.  We must compare everything… Read More

Alert! Jesus Culture Video, Part 2: A Call for Discernment! Are you Sure It’s Your Jesus?

The Jesus Culture Band has a massive following, and just like sozo, has originated out of Bethel Church in Redding, California.  These are the roots of this band/movement that is sweeping across the world at an alarming rate. Oddly, I cannot find a “belief” page or “statement of faith” page anywhere on Jesus Culture’s website. We have asked and asked to no avail.  We asked the page owners at the Jesus Culture/Kim Walker Band event promotional pages.  No belief statement.  The best answer we received was a direction to the Bethel Church… Read More

WARNING – BILL JOHNSON and BETHEL CHURCH by Andrew Strom

WARNING – BILL JOHNSON and BETHEL CHURCH by Andrew Strom  September 27, 2012 I am really hoping to make this the last of this type of article for awhile. Some people think I “love” putting out this stuff. But I honestly wish it would all go away, so we could get on with the ‘real’ work of building the kingdom. However, Bill Johnson is doing such damage to the Body of Christ around the world that I simply cannot stay silent. In New Zealand (where I am currently) he holds a huge… Read More
