Calvary Chapel ‘anointed’ pastor pleads guilty to murdering mistress

Calvary Chapel pastors should be very careful when they make the claim that they are “God’s anointed”.

Is your church guilty of spiritual abuse?

Is your church guilty of spiritual abuse?

Don’t underestimate the danger of spiritual abuse. It devastates one’s pysche, causes depression and post traumatic stress disorder, and leaves victims spiritually barren.

When those in spiritual authority manipulate, intimidate, and control others out of lust for power or fear of sin or insignificance. One or more of these signs doesn’t necessarily mean abuse is present, but the more signs, the more likely it is taking place.

Spiritual abuse is a stain on the body of Christ (I experienced it and write about it in my book). Today, many American churches and denominations are susceptible to it, particularly “reformed” Calvinistic churches or those with a highly disciplined authority structure. I cite examples from my experience including Sovereign Grace Ministries and Calvary Chapel. But spiritual abuse is also subtle and not easily recognizable unless one knows the signs. Learn these top ten signs so you can detect, expose, and help prevent abuse in your Christian community.

The Misunderstood Gift of Discernment

The following was photographed from the Free Believers Network.  It is perhaps the best description of the spiritual gift of discernment I have seen so far.  I asked the author if I could use this and obtained his permission.

Tactic from the enemy to get sozo and Bethel members to not listen to the truth their loved ones present

Hi friends.

There is a tactic that the enemy is using to get Bethel members to shun family members or friends who are lovingly trying to warn them of this cultic group.  The tactic is a lie.  The tactic is to slander (the legal and Biblical definition of slander means to lie or speak falsehood; it does not mean to speak the truth) the family member and call he or she a “pharisee”, “legalist”, “religious spirit” and/or a “persecutor” if they lovingly warn of danger, and to not listen to them because they are just trying to keep you from entering God’s blessing or a relationship with the “holy spirit”.  This tactic is a lie, not the truth, and actually unnecessarily divides families.  It’s not good or holy, and it’s not of Christ or the real Holy Spirit.  It causes the Bethel member to falsely accuse or falsely believe that the loving family member is attacking them.  As a result, the Bethel member falls deeper into the cultic group, and further away from the Jesus of the Bible, the path of truth, and those who truly love them and are simply speaking the truth with love.  If only these Bethel members would see the truth of the people that love them so much and are trying to warn them of danger.  The leader or person (whoever that may be) teaching this evil tactic is a “conceited” false teacher who “understands nothing” and is placing divisions, “evil suspicions” and “strife” between Christians and those in the Body of Christ.  These are not the “sound words of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Timothy 6:3).  Whoever is teaching this and dividing families will fall into the hands of the living God and will be eternally punished for their wickedness should they not repent.  Hebrews 10:31 says, “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”.

I will write more about this tactic the enemy uses in the coming days.  Hopefully this helps.

With the love and grace of Christ.

What is the Joel’s Army Heresy?

I am reading up on the Joel’s Army heresy.  Here is an informational booklet I found by Jewel Grewe.  The Bible points to a great end-time deception, but not a revival army of Christians (Matthew 24:10; 1 Timothy 4:1).
