By Ray Yungen

The Bible says that in the last days, many will
come in Christ’s name. If one examines the “prophecies” of occulist 
Alice Bailey, one can gain insight into what the apostle Paul called
in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 the falling away. Bailey eagerly foretold of
what she termed “the regeneration of the churches.”1 Her rationale for
this was obvious:

The Christian church in its many branches can
serve as a St. John the Baptist, as a voice crying in the wilderness,
and as a nucleus through which world illumination may be

In other words, instead of opposing Christianity, the occult would capture and blend
itself with Christianity and then use it as its primary vehicle for
spreading and instilling New Age consciousness! The various churches
would still have their outer trappings of Christianity and still use
much of the same lingo. If asked certain questions about traditional
Christian doctrine, the same answers would be given. But it would all be
on the outside; on the inside a contemplative spirituality would be
drawing in those open to it.

In wide segments of Christianity, this has
indeed already occurred.
One Catholic priest alone taught 31,000
people mystical prayer in one year. People are responding to this in
large numbers because it has the external appearance of Christianity
but in truth is the diametric opposite­. This has all the indications
of the falling away of which the apostle Paul speaks.

Note this departure is tied in with the
revelation of the “man of sin.” If he is indeed Bailey’s “Coming One,”
then both Paul’s prophecy and Bailey’s prophecy fit together
perfectly—but indisputably from opposite camps and perspectives.

This is very logical when one sees, as Paul
proclaimed, that they will fall away to “the mystery of iniquity” (2
Thessalonians 2:7). The word mystery in Greek, when used in the
context of evil (iniquity), means hidden or occult!

This revitalization of Christianity would fit
in with Bailey’s “new and vital world religion”3—a religion that would
be the cornerstone of the New Age. Such a religion would be the
spiritual platform for the “Coming One.” This unity of spiritual
thought would not be a single one-world denomination but would have a
unity-in-diversity, multicultural, interfaith, ecumenical agenda.
Thomas Merton made a direct reference to this at a spiritual summit
conference in Calcutta, India when he told Hindus and Buddhists, “We
are already one, but we imagine, we are not. What we have to recover
is our original unity.”4

One can easily find numerous such appeals like Merton’s in contemplative writings. Examine the following:

The Christian is not to become a Hindu or a
Buddhist, nor a Hindu or Buddhist to become a Christian. But each must
assimilate the spirit of the others.5 —Vivekananda

It is my sense, from having meditated with
persons from many different [non-Christian] traditions, that in the
silence we experience a deep unity. When we go beyond the portals of
the rational mind into the experience, there is only one God to be
experienced.6—Basil Pennington

The new ecumenism involved here is not
between Christian and Christian, but between Christians and the grace
of other intuitively deep religious traditions.7—Tilden Edwards

What is happening to mainstream Christianity is
the same thing that is happening to business, health, education,
counseling, and other areas of society. Christianity is being
cultivated for a role in the New Age.
A spirit guide named Raphael
explains this in the Starseed Transmissions:

We work with all who are vibrationally
sympathetic; simple and sincere people who feel our spirit moving, but
for the most part, only within the context of their current belief system.18 (emphasis mine)

He is saying that they “work,” or interact,
with people who open their minds to them in a way that fits in with
the person’s current beliefs. In the context of Christianity, this
means that those meditating will think they have contacted God, when
in reality they have connected up with Raphael’s kind (who are more
than willing to impersonate whomever they wish to reach so long as
these seductive spirits can link with them).

This ultimately points to a deluded global
religion based on meditation and mystical experience.
New Age writer
David Spangler explains it the following way:

There will be several religious and spiritual
disciplines as there are today, each serving different sensibilities
and affinities, each enriched by and enriching the particular cultural
soil in which it is rooted. However, there will also be a planetary
spirituality that will celebrate the sacredness of the whole humanity
in appropriate festivals, rituals, and sacraments. . . . Mysticism has
always overflowed the bounds of particular religious traditions, and
in the new world this would be even more true.9

What we are warning about is not some unprovable conspiracy theory. In fact, far from it. In March of 2016, Newsweek
magazine put out a special edition called “Spiritual Living.” This
glossy publication presented page after page of pure Alice Bailey
spirituality. The entire issue was devoted to the mystical perception
that man is divine:

The key to positive change—both internal and
external—is present in everyone, and it also exists all around us.
Whether through meditation, energy healing or a full-on spiritual
awakening, you can transcend the physical world to better your mind,
body and soul.10

That may sound kind of benign, but numerous
articles in the magazine promote the idea of spirits that can indwell
people. If this had been put out by the National Enquirer, then this could be dismissed as nothing more than sensationalistic or exaggerated. But Newsweek
is one of the oldest and most respected news magazines in the world.
When they make this kind of an effort, then we need to sit up and take
notice that Alice Bailey’s religion has now come to the forefront of
mainstream society. What this means according to those who are
sympathetic with this is that if we are to be “spiritual,” we need to
partake of Alice Bailey’s “new vital world religion.”  Sadly, more and
more churches are doing just that.

[The Shack Movie (Coming to Theaters in March 2017)]

I was drawn into the New Age Movement years ago by books and lectures containing parabolic stories that were not unlike The Shack.
They felt spiritually uplifting as they tackled tough issues and
talked about God’s love and forgiveness. They seemed to provide me
with what I spiritually needed as they gave me much needed hope and
promise. Building on the credibility they achieved through their
inspirational and emotive writings, my New Age authors and teachers
would then go on to tell me that “God” is “in” everyone and

I discovered that author William P. Young does exactly the same thing in The Shack.
He moves through his very engaging and emotional story to eventually
present this same New Age teaching that God is “in” everything.

But I am getting ahead of myself. Let me first
provide some background material concerning this key New Age doctrine
that “God is in everything.” A good place to start is with Eugene
Peterson, the author of the controversial Bible paraphrase The Message. After all, Peterson’s enthusiastic endorsement of The Shack is featured right under the author’s name on the front cover.

Ironically, it was Peterson’s endorsement that caused me to be immediately suspicious of The Shack.
Through his questionable paraphrasing of the Bible, Peterson had
already aligned himself in a number of areas with New Age/New
Spirituality teachings. One obvious example is where he translated a key
verse in the Lord’s Prayer to read “as above, so below” rather than
“in earth, as it is in heaven.” “As above, so below” is a term that I
was very familiar with from my previous involvement in the New Age
movement. This esoteric saying has been an occult centerpiece for
nearly five thousand years. It is alleged by New Age metaphysicians to
be the key to all magic and all mysteries. It means that God is not
only transcendent—“out there”— but He is also immanent—“in” everyone
and everything.

But, as I found out just before abandoning the
deceptive teachings of the New Age for the Truth of biblical
Christianity, God is not “in” everyone and everything. The Bible makes
it clear that man is not divine and that man is not God (Ezekiel
28:2, Hosea 11:9, John 2:24-25, etc.) In my book Deceived on Purpose: The New Age Implications of the Purpose Driven Church, I quoted the editors of New Age Journal as they defined “as above, so below” in their book, As Above, So Below:

“As above, so below, as below, so above.” This
maxim implies that the transcendent God beyond the physical universe
and the immanent God within ourselves are one.2

My concern about Peterson’s undiscerning use of
“as above, so below” in the Lord’s Prayer was underscored when the
2006 bestseller, The Secret,
showcased this same occult/New Age phrase. In fact, it was the
introductory quote at the very beginning of the book. By immediately
featuring “as above, so below” the author Rhonda Byrne was telling her
readers in definite New Age language that “God is in everyone and
everything.” Towards the end of the book, The Secret puts into
more practical words what the author initially meant by introducing
the immanent concept of “as above, so below.” On page 164, The Secret tells its readers—“You are God in a physical body.”

Most significantly, in his book The Reappearance of the Christ and the Masters of Wisdom,
New Age leader Benjamin Crème reveals that a New World Religion will
be based on this foundational “as above, so below” teaching of
immanence—this idea that God is “in” everyone and everything:

But eventually a new world religion will be
inaugurated which will be a fusion and synthesis of the approach of
the East and the approach of the West. The Christ will bring together,
not simply Christianity and Buddhism, but the concept of God
transcendent—outside of His creation—and also the concept of God
immanent in all creation—in man and all creation.3

New Age matriarch Alice Bailey, in her book The Reappearance of the Christ, wrote:

. . . a fresh orientation to divinity and to
the acceptance of the fact of God Transcendent and God Immanent within
every form of life. “These are foundational truths upon which the
world religion of the future will rest.4

In a November 9, 2003 Hour of Power sermon—just
two months before he was a featured speaker at the annual meeting of
the National Association of Evangelicals—Crystal Cathedral minister
Robert Schuller unabashedly aligned himself with this same New Age/New
World Religion teaching. The man who claims to have mentored
thousands of pastors, including Bill Hybels and Rick Warren, stated:

You know in theology—pardon me for using a
couple of big words—but in theology the God we believe in, this God of
Abraham, is a transcendent God. But He is also an immanent God.
Transcendent means up there, out there, above us all. But God is also
an immanent God—immanence of God and the transcendence of God—but then
you have a balanced perspective of God. The immanence of God means
here, in me, around me, in society, in the world, this God here, in
the humanities, in the science, in the arts, sociology, in
politics—the immanence of God. . . . Yes, God is alive and He is in
every single human being!5

But God is not in every single human being. God is not in everything. One of the many reasons I wrote Deceived on Purpose was because Rick Warren presented his readers with this same “God in everything” teaching. Quoting an obviously flawed New Century Bible
translation of Ephesians 4:6, Rick Warren—whether he meant to or
not—was teaching his millions of readers the foundational doctrine of
the New World Religion. Describing God in his book, The Purpose-Driven Life, he wrote:

He rules everything and is everywhere and is in everything.6

Compounding the matter further, “immanence” has
been taught as part of the Foundations class at Rick Warren’s
Saddleback Church. An ill-defined reference to immanence in the
Saddleback Foundations Participants Guide plays right into the hands
of the New Spirituality/New World Religion by stating:

The fact that God stands above and beyond his
creation does not mean he stands outside his creation. He is both
transcendent (above and beyond his creation) and immanent (within and
throughout his creation).7

All of this discussion I am giving about “God in everything” immanence is to explain why The Shack
is such a deceptive book. It teaches this same heresy. This book
ostensibly attempts to deal with the deeply sensitive issues surrounding
the murder of a young child. Because of the author’s intensely
personal story line, most readers become engaged with the book on a
deep emotional level. However, the author’s use of poetic license to
convey his highly subjective, and often unbiblical, spiritual views
becomes increasingly problematic as the story line develops. This is
most apparent when he uses the person of “Jesus” to suddenly introduce
the foundational teaching of the New Spirituality/New World
Religion—God is “in” everything. Using the New Age term “ground of
being” to describe “God,” the “Jesus” of The Shack states:

God, who is the ground of all being, dwells in, around, and through all things.8

This false teaching about a “God” who “dwells
in, around, and through all things” is the kind of New Age leaven that
left unchallenged could leaven the church into the New Age/New
Spirituality of the proposed New World Religion. And while many people
have expressed a great deal of emotional attachment to The Shack and its characters—this leaven alone contaminates the whole book.

Clearly, the “Jesus” of The Shack is
not Jesus Christ of the Bible. The apostle Paul chided the Corinthians
and warned them that they were vulnerable and extremely susceptible
to “another Jesus” and “another gospel” and “another spirit” that were
not from God (2 Corinthians 11:4). In the Bible, the real Jesus
Christ warned that spiritual deception would be a sign before His
return. He further warned that there would be those who would even
come in His name, pretending to be Him (Matthew 24:3-5, 24).

Without ascribing any ill motive to William Young and his book The Shack,
the author’s use of spiritual creativity seems to give a “Christian”
assent to the New Age/New Spirituality of the proposed New World
Religion. His mixing of truth and error can become very confusing to
readers, and God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33).

Dr. Harry Ironside, pastor of Chicago’s Moody
Memorial Church from 1930-1948, emphasizes the fact that truth mixed
with error results in “all error”—a direct refutation of the Emergent
Church teaching to find “truth” wherever it may be found—including
books like The Shack. Ironside wrote:

Error is like leaven, of which we read, “A
little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” Truth mixed with error is
equivalent to all error, except that it is more innocent looking and,
therefore, more dangerous. God hates such a mixture! Any error, or any
truth-and-error mixture, calls for definite exposure and repudiation.
To condone such is to be unfaithful to God and His Word and
treacherous to imperiled souls for whom Christ died.9

The Shack has touched the hearts and
emotions of many people. While there are many other examples of the
author’s unbiblical liberality, introducing the heretical New Age
teaching that “God dwells in, and around, and through all things” is
in and by itself enough to completely undermine any value the book
might otherwise have for faithful believers. To allow yourself to get
carried away by this story, while disregarding the book’s New Age/New
Spirituality leaven, is to fall prey to the “truth-and-error” mixture
that pervades The Shack. And as Dr. Ironside warned—“God hates such a mixture!”

Before Christians buy one more copy of this
book, they need to come to terms with what this author is ultimately
teaching and what it is they are passing along to their friends and
fellow believers.

And they shall turn away their ears from the
truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (2 Timothy 4:4) For footnotes

[God] will take this hell on earth and someday show us how hell was building heaven.—Jennie Allen (founder of IF: Gathering)

Have you heard of the IF: Gathering? If you
haven’t, you most likely will soon enough. The women’s movement
started just a few years ago but is already making some big inroads
into the evangelical scene. On the outer appearance, this looks like a
legitimate Christian movement – the women who lead and speak at IF:
Gathering are young and vibrant; they talk about Jesus, they go to
church; some of them homeschool their kids—it all looks so Christian.
But underneath this outer thin Christian layer lies an emergent
atmosphere . . . and the target is your young evangelical daughters
and granddaughters.

In a few days (February 2-3), IF: Gathering
will be presenting their annual conference in Austin, Texas. The
conference, called IF:2017 will also be live-streamed to many churches
throughout America and Canada (and in some other countries as well).
Lighthouse Trails has received a number of phone calls and e-mails by
concerned parents and grandparents whose daughters and granddaughters
are attending the conference, either in Austin or one of the
sponsoring churches. Here is a link to the list of churches
that will be holding the IF:2017 conference next week via live-stream.
According to the IF website, there are over 2000 live-streamed events
for this year’s event. If you multiply that by even just 150, that is
nearly 300,000 women! 
When you go to the list, type in your
zip code, see if there is a conference being held in your city or
town, and if there is, start alerting those you know. Your friends may
have daughters who are attending.

This year’s event will apparently not include
IF speaker Jen Hatmaker who, we have learned, dropped out of IF last
year for undisclosed reasons (recently she came out promoting gay
marriage, and this got her into trouble with LifeWay Resources who dropped her books at that point). Speakers for this year’s event include Jennie Allen (IF’s founder), Ann VosKamp (author of One Thousand Gifts – see section in Cedric Fisher’s article below), Lysa Terkeurst, Jennie Yang, Jeanne Stevens (Co-Pastor with Husband of Soul City Church –– former staff member of Willow Creek and associated with Erwin
McManus: ), and Jo Saxton.
You may not be familiar with these names, but
we encourage you to do your research and please read Cedric’s article
so you might come to understand the underlying agenda of IF. As
Cedric says, we don’t question the sincerity of these women, but we do
question the direction they are heading spiritually. While her name
doesn’t appear in this year’s line up, Melissa Greene is  involved
with IF as well (please see article below to learn about Greene’s
beliefs and this video of her). Greene, a pastor, resonates with emergent leader Brian McLaren, and her church made headlines when it came out promoting same-sex marriage.

In May of 2015, Lighthouse Trails author, Cedric Fisher, wrote a booklet titled “ IF it is of God—Answering the questions of IF:Gathering.”
We are posting that booklet in its entirety below. If you scroll to
the bottom of his article and hit the green Print button, it will
format a nice PDF copy for you (you can buy it in booklet format too,
but you’ll have to print it in order to have it in time before the
conference). If you know a woman who is planning to attend the
IF:Gathering conference next week, please print this article and give
her a copy to read. Because the emergent “theology” is deceptive and
spiritually dangerous, these young women need to be given a heads up.

Lest some say that Jennie Allen has cleaned up
IF by not having Jen Hatmaker and Melissa Greene at this year’s event,
keep in mind that Jennie Allen knew what these two friends believed
when she invited them to be part of IF just a few years ago. How can
we trust our daughters and granddaughters to someone who shows no
discernment and who very likely will continue connecting with and
inviting speakers who are of a similar emergent mindset.1 For example, Shauna Niequist (Bill and Lynn Hybels daughter) is involved with IF (they sell her book on their site, she contributes on the blog, and she is one of the speakers at IF:2017) and recently she gave her “blessing” to Jen Hatmaker’s acceptance of same-sex marriage and endorses Jesus Calling.

Once you read Cedric’s article below, we
believe you will understand why we are so concerned about this
movement. Writing this article reminds us of another article we wrote a
number of years ago in 2008. It was titled “Brian McLaren’s Hope for the Future – The Minds of Your Grandchildren.” 
Since then, the emergent church has continued growing and indeed
grabbing the minds of countless young people, many of them from
Christian homes. We hope and pray parents and grandparents will do all
they can to keep their own young people from going down that same path,
this time via IF.

Don’t forget to check the list of places IF:2017 will be livestreaming to see if your town or city is hosting an IF conference.

IF IT IS OF GOD—Answering the questions of IF:Gathering

By Cedric H. Fisher

IF:Gathering came in like a storm, one of those
winter events that seem to appear out of nowhere. No one saw it
coming. A team of highly popular women—authors, bloggers, and speakers
coming together—what a great idea. But it wasn’t novel. Professing
Christians have been making pilgrimages for decades to high-energy
conferences with a star list of speakers and singers. As with so many
of these other conferences, IF purported to do the work of God.
However, IF was unique in that it was mostly a digital event. It was
greatly effective.

The IF:Gathering held its second event in
February of 2015 and involved 1200 women at the physical location,
with a possible 100,000 or more watching by 40,000 live links in more
than 120 countries. The ongoing influence of IF after the
conference has the potential to reach hundreds of thousands of women
all while flying under the radar of pastors and church leaders who may
be accepting IF:Gathering at face value, not knowing anything about
this group of high energy talented women leaders.

After reading the list of IF speakers and
researching information about them, I have become convinced that IF
poses a significant risk to Christian women, who unwittingly are
submitting themselves to IF’s speakers and teachers. The danger? It
comes in the form of emergent ideology, spiritual formation,
and contemplative spirituality (contemplative prayer is a mantra-like
“prayer” practice that vitalizes the “progressive” “new” Christianity
(i.e., the emerging church).
Thus, I am compelled to report on my
findings regarding IF.

How did IF:Gathering come about and is it
ordained by God? These are questions every responsible Christian needs
to ask concerning anything claiming to be a new move or revelation
from God. Those questions are especially important during such a time
as this, a time when the church is suffering from great deception and
apostasy. Is IF influencing women to draw nearer to God or rather
leading them onto a spiritually dangerous path to heresy?

IF’s Beginning—A Whisper from the Sky
The 2015 IF:Gathering did not end when the
conference was over. It continues to function through the network
established before the conference occurred. Its influence continues
through local churches and individuals who hosted the event, through
social media, available videos of the event, and the “IF:Table,”* all
of which have the potential to reach countless more women and evolve
into a major women’s movement. If that occurs, it will help set the
agenda of how the future generation perceives and implements

The first statement on their website under “Who We Are” is:

We exist to gather, equip and unleash the next generation of women to live out their purpose.1

The founder of IF:Gathering, Jennie Allen, is a
bright and energetic, best-selling author, blogger, and popular
speaker. She appears sincere and dedicated to ministering to people.
She and her husband have been involved in ministry for a number of
years. However, since she is the founder, we must consider her
activity, her influences, and her statements about the birth of

Allen is a Bible teacher who had been teaching
groups of girls and young women since high school. She studied at the
University of Arkansas for three years, completed her B.S. in
Communications at Carson Newman College in Tennessee, and graduated
from Dallas Theological Seminary with a Master’s in Biblical Studies
in 2005. It would be two years after her graduation from DTS when she
had an experience that birthed IF: Gathering.

Allen signed a multi-project contract in 2011
with Thomas Nelson, which included a series of seven DVD-based Bible
studies and two trade books. Her first study released in 2011,
followed by another one released in 2012. Her first trade book was
also released in 2012. Allen’s book Restless: Because You Were Made for More and the Restless video-based Bible study were released simultaneously in January 2014, a month before the first IF:Gathering.

Allen was also one of the speakers in the
neo-emergent Nines Conference in 2014, which hosted a speaker lineup
that included some of the main influences in the New Christianity

How did the IF:Gathering originate? There are
different and conflicting explanations given by Allen. The first
account was presented by Allen in the initial IF:Gathering in Austin,
Texas, 2014:

About 7 years ago, a voice from the sky—that
doesn’t often speak to me—but that day there was this whisper. It was
the middle of the night, actually. And it was “Gather and equip your
And this was ridiculous, because honestly, I was a stay
at home Mom, I didn’t know anybody that could help me with that job.
And it was a completely ridiculous statement. So ridiculous that I
just, for two days my bones hurt, and I didn’t know what to do with
it. My bones hurt, for two days.

I thought, Okay God, what do you want me to do? Wisely my friend said, “Jennie, if
it’s God,” cause it may not be. All voices from the sky are not always
God, FYI. But, “if it’s God, then He’s going to give you everything
you need to accomplish His purposes. So just wait.” And so I waited,
and that was seven years ago, guys.2

Allen eventually came to believe it was God who
She would wait several years for Him to put IF: Gathering
together. However, a year after the account of IF’s birth that she
gave in the 2014 conference, she posted another account on her blog:

Truth is, IF:Gathering began as more of a hunch than a vision.3

A month later, and one year after her first
account, Allen gave another account of how the IF came about during
the IF: Gathering February, 2015:

I mean, 7 years ago, 8 years ago now, I heard
a voice that . . . well, okay, I didn’t. This is like all different
theologies right now. Okay, just give me grace. I don’t know, but I’m
just telling you, in the night I woke up, and I was overcome with
these words, “Disciple a generation.”

But I sat on it. I put it in my back pocket
and said, “Okay God, if you want to do something crazy like that,
you’re gonna have to make it happen.”

I read Allen’s book, Anything: The Prayer that Unlocked my God and My Soul,
written a couple of years after her experience with the sky
whisperer. In her book, Allen describes deep intimacy with God and
willingness to obey Him completely. However, she does not mention
anything about Sky Whisperer or his commission to organize the IF:
Gathering. I find that puzzling. What better place to introduce and
expound on such a life-changing intimate experience and surrender than
in a book describing full surrender?

I’m willing to concede that there could be a
good reason for the inconsistencies of her accounts as to how IF came
about. But an individual whom God supernaturally calls to accomplish a
significant work should give a credible and unambiguous account of
that call. One could say, “I saw a need and did my best to meet it.”
However, when one says, “I heard a voice from God,” a different
standard is involved. The reason is because something that has a
supernatural event as an origin will have a much greater weight of
influence. It presents the individual as a special agent of God, just
as any of the figures in the Bible whom God used to accomplish
unprecedented purposes. It almost immunizes the revelation and the
individual from critical examination.

Therefore, I believe it is proper and
reasonable to examine Jennie Allen’s statements concerning the origin
of the IF: Gathering. The questions are: “Is Allen’s explanations of
the origin of IF:Gathering convincing and does she provide viable and
credible information that concludes IF: Gathering originated from God?
One should prayerfully consider those questions and ultimately should
ask: if it’s origin is in question and if it’s founder is involved in
emergent conferences, can IF:Gathering produce good fruit? The next
section concerning the speakers in IF:Gathering may help answer that
last question.

For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor
does a bad tree bear good fruit. For every tree is known by its own
fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather
grapes from a bramble bush. (Luke 6:43-44)

IF, The Speakers: Ambassadors of God or Emergent Collaborators

If Jeannie Allen did indeed hear supernaturally
from God, and if God supernaturally equipped her to organize the
IF:Gathering, we would expect good fruit from the conference and the
speakers. We would not expect people who are influenced by emergent,
New Age, and other aberrant authors and teachers. It is logical to
expect that the speakers would be stellar Christian examples.

Space does not permit me to deal with all the
conference speakers, so I have chosen several whom I believe need to
be examined. They are listed in alphabetical order.

Sarah Bessey
After reading portions of her book, Jesus Feminist,
I get the impression Sarah Bessey believes that Christianity is stuck
with the Woman Suffrage movement somewhere in the 1920s. She
references radical feminist, social activist, and journalist Dorothy
Day in her book and seems to draw from secular feminism. From that
concept, she tries to invent a need for radical feminism in
Christianity, presenting bizarre commentary on the Scriptures to back
up her position.
The following quote illustrates her view:

Many of the seminal social issues of our
time—poverty, lack of education, human trafficking, war and torture,
domestic abuse—can track their way to our theology of, or beliefs
about, women, which has its roots in what we believe about the nature,
purposes, and character of God.5

In the back of Jesus Feminist under “Further Reading,” Bessey offers a book titled How I Changed My Mind About Women in Leadership, which includes essays from emerging church authors Tony Campolo, John Ortberg, and Bill and Lynne Hybels. Jesus Feminist also has endorsements in the book by Brian McLaren and Tony Jones. On her blog, she lists among her favorites A Generous Orthodoxy by Brian McLaren and Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning.6 She also promotes The Way of the Heart by Henri Nouwen.7 There’s no question that Bessey resonates with the views of these men.

With such emergent and contemplative influences, how can good fruit be produced by this speaker?

Christine Caine
Christine Caine claims Joyce Meyer as her
“spiritual mother” and lists Word of Faith preacher Sheryl Brady as a
dear friend calling her “flat out the best chick preacher of the
word.”8 Caine has “preached” in seeker/emergent Steven Furtick’s mega
church in Charlotte, North Carolina. The following is transcribed from
Caine’s opening statement in Furtick’s church:

This place is a little bit like God, take
this in context, in that like you are omnipresent. You are here. You
are across the room. You are down the street. You are all over the
worldwide web. It is like wherever you look, here we are and it is my
honor and privilege to be here, I couldn’t wait.9

Caine also declared that her heart was
“knitted” to Furtick.
One whose heart is surrendered to God could not
possibly be knitted to an individual such as Furtick. Journalist and
researcher Jim Fletcher says this about Furtick:

Steven Furtick . . . mentored as he is by
evangelical bigwigs like Rick Warren and Bill Hybels, felt bold enough
to post a YouTube video in which he sneeringly challenged what I’d
call traditional Christians to basically get out of the way, because
their time is past. Presumably, to Furtick, it’s the “new
generation’s” time now, so step aside with your stodgy hymns and
expositional preaching style. . . . Masked a bit by a pious nod toward
humanitarian causes, the leadership of this group is quite nasty,
albeit in subtle ways.10

Further, according to the itinerary on
Christine Caine’s website, she will be speaking at NAR (New Apostolic
Reformation) leader Bill Johnson’s Bethel Church in Redding,
California in August 2015 in the Bethel Women’s Conference. Why does
this matter? It shows a pattern of being willing to associate with
people and “minister” in churches that are teaching and promoting
false and dangerous teachings.

Melissa Greene
Melissa Greene is the pastor of worship and arts
at GracePointe Church in Franklin, Tennessee. The church made national headlines in January of 2015 as senior
pastor, Stan Mitchell, declared his church now accepts homosexual

When I pull up Greene’s website, I immediately
notice the picture of her sitting in a Yoga position. In a May 25th,
2014 message on her website titled “Worth,” Greene admits to reading
emerging church pioneer Brian McLaren’s book, A Generous Orthodoxy
(and McLaren spoke at GracePointe in the fall of 2014). Greene
favorably quotes other prolific New Spirituality names: Phyllis
Tickle, Richard Rohr, Frederick Buechner, Rob Bell, Nicholas
Wolterstorff, Thomas Merton, Peter Gomes, Aldous Huxley—a list that
reads like a veritable who’s who in emergent and contemplative heresy.

In “Worth,” Greene declares that, “Christianity
is broad and diverse.”13 Considering that many of her influences
accept all religions as being of God, there is no doubt to what she
means when she states this. Greene also made the audacious statement:
“The most devastating fear in people’s lives is the fear of God.”14
She attempts to validate her statement by taking verses out of context
and misapplying them. What does God’s word declare?

And do not fear those who kill the body but
cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both
soul and body in hell. (Matthew 10:28)

Therefore, having these promises, beloved,
let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit,
perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)

For thousands of young Christian-professing women to submit to someone like Melissa Greene could have a detrimental effect.

Jen Hatmaker
In Jen Hatmaker’s book, Interrupted: When Jesus Wreck Your Comfortable Christianity,
she makes it clear that she is influenced by a number of New Age/New
Spirituality individuals. She quotes Catholic priest and contemplative
activist Richard Rohr and emergent leader Shane Claiborne. On her
blog, she promotes the book, The Circle Maker, by Mark
Batterson, a book that encourages readers to draw circles around
specific things in order to have more answered prayers. Batterson was
inspired with this idea by an ancient sage.

In Hatmaker’s book, 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess,
she reveals that her family takes part in a Roman Catholic ritual
with mystical origins, the “Seven Sacred Pauses.”15 Hatmaker got her
inspiration from Seven Sacred Pauses, a book by Macrina Wiederkehr who is a spiritual director
in the contemplative prayer movement. In Wiederkehr’s retreats, seekers
are guided through experiences of silence, contemplation and lectio divina
(a contemplative practice where words and phrases from the Bible are
repeated in mantra-like fashion). The “seven sacred pauses” are seven
times a day to pause and pray, which Wiederkehr describes as “breathing
spells for the soul.”

Consider Hatmaker’s statement concerning the preaching of God’s Word:

I have spent half my life listening to
someone else talk about God. Because of this history, I’ve developed
something of an immunity to sermons.16

This is eerily similar to the sentiment of Sue Monk Kidd (author of The Secret Life of Bees),
who once, as a conservative Southern Baptist Sunday school teacher,
expressed her dissatisfaction (and eventual rejection) of the preaching
of God’s Word. That led Monk Kidd down a path away from the Christian
faith and straight into the New Age. Today, she worships the goddess

This disgruntlement of God’s Word is so
prevalent among leaders of the emerging New Spirituality church. If
not preaching, then what? Is it emotionally charged conventions and
books with flowering, poetic phrases that open up to spit out a toxic
drop of heresy? If Hatmaker is immune to preaching, she has rejected
God’s method in favor of her own.

Ann VosKamp
Ann VosKamp’s highly popular book, One Thousand Gifts,
is peppered with favorable references to and quotes by various
mystics, pantheists, and universalists. The following is a list of
some of those influences:

Sarah Ban Breathnach, Teresa of Avila, Julian
of Norwich, Evelyn Underhill, Brennan Manning, Annie Dillard, Thomas
Aquinas, Peter Kreeft, Walter Brueggemann, Francis de Sales, Pierre
Teilhard de Chardin, Henri Nouwen, and Jean-Pierre de Caussade. She
also quotes mystic Catholic nun Kathleen Norris on her blog.17

You may not have heard of all these names, but
in my research, I have found that they all embrace a panentheistic
mystical-based spirituality. For VosKamp to quote and reference so
many authors in this category shows she is embracing and absorbing the
spirituality of these figures.

In the last chapter of One Thousand Gifts, “The Joy of Intimacy,” Voskamp writes:

Mystical union. This, the highest degree of
importance. God as Husband in sacred wedlock, bound together, body and
soul, fed by His body, quenched by His blood . . . God, He has
blessed—caressed. I could bless God—caress with thanks. It’s our
making love. God makes love with grace upon grace, every moment a
making of His love for us . . . couldn’t I make love to God, making
every moment love for Him? To know Him the way Adam knew Eve. Spirit
skin to spirit skin . . . The intercourse of soul with God is the very
climax of joy . . . To enter into Christ and Christ enter into us—to

This is what contemplatives consider “intimacy”
with God, as if God is more a lover or a boyfriend than the Creator
of the Universe, the King of Kings, and our beloved Savior. This is
what millions of young Christian women are being introduced to.

The question is, are Sarah Bessey, Christine
Cane, Melissa Greene, Jen Hatmaker, and Ann VosKamp really called from
God as they profess to be? While I won’t question their sincerity, I
must ask the questions: How can the IF:Gathering be ordained by God?
How can Jennie Allen have supernaturally heard from God concerning her
conference? And how could righteous God Almighty have sanctioned a
movement that is so influenced by diabolical sources?

The IF:Gatherings promise great solutions, but
in practice, they covertly chip away at biblical concepts of God, the
Holy Spirit, and biblical Christianity. They are based on flawed
concepts masked by alluring phrases. Like all other emerging church
“coaches” and mentors, the IF leaders intend to solve the problem of
what they insist is failed Christianity. They believe a
replacement—New Christianity—is the solution.

Considering the influences of the speakers, the
IF:Gatherings will lead to dangerous, alternate spirituality. The
Conference overwhelms susceptible women with music, visuals, and
emotional camaraderie. When their hearts are prepped and open,
provocative questions are presented, and  answers that conflict with
God’s word are offered.

IF the Fruit is Good
When I was a worldling, I visited the notorious
Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Fresh from the Oklahoma hills, I had
never witnessed anything remotely like it. One thing that fascinated
me most were the barkers. The barkers were men who stood outside of
the many establishments attempting to coax passersby to enter them.
They were so convincing. Their skills had been honed by trial and
error. Bending to the persuasive and captivating power of their words,
I entered one of those establishments. Once inside, I was shocked at
the total absences of morals. Although it made my cheeks blush, and my
moral upbringing urged me to leave, I was with a couple of friends
and didn’t want to be considered a prude. So I stayed. The longer I
stayed, the more I got used to the immorality. The more I got used to
it, the more I wanted of it.

The speakers at the IF:Gathering are barkers.
They are luring many professing Christian women with persuasive and
captivating words. A repetitive error I noticed in the Conference was
that a speaker would set up a straw man, and then mix the answer to it
with Scripture. She would then insist that the conclusion was a valid
point. An example was when Jen Hatmaker argued that we cannot
possibly know all of God. She quoted a Scripture from Romans 11:33.
Her conclusion was that because we cannot know God fully, it is not
detrimental to faith to have doubt. However, faith does not depend on
knowledge, but trust. Lack of knowledge should not make us doubt, but
rather a lack of trust. This was a prevailing theme at IF.

Hatmaker also insisted that God set us free
simply to set us free; that He set us free for us. Again, this does
not agree with God’s Word:

For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (1 Corinthians 6:20)

We were created for God’s purpose, to worship
and serve Him. He set us free so we could belong to Him to honor and
serve Him with all our hearts, mind, bodies, and spirits.

One constant thing that made me cringe was the
cavalier attitude that some of the speakers, especially Jennie Allen,
exhibited toward God. At one point, Allen, says, “Darn it, darn it,”
and goes off on a rant implying that God is stupid, mean, and that His
plan is absurd. The rant came only minutes after she declared she was
nearly overcome with reverential fear of God.19

In Melissa Greene’s “Worth” sermon, one comes away with the following conclusions:

Certainty is bad; Questions (and no answers) is good.

The old-fashioned faith of our parents and grandparents is outdated and irrelevant.

References to numerous mystics and emergents

The “text” (the Bible) is OK, but there is so much more to be grasped.

In the end, everyone is saved.20

As I mentioned earlier, Greene admits to
reading Brian McLaren, and from the content of the “Worth” video,
McLaren’s spirituality has become her own. The IF leaders hope to lead
as many women as possible into the same direction as Jennie Allen

While I wish I were a more confident,
rebellious pioneer, God had to nearly force me to the wild, new path
He had for IF. I am however compelled to call as many of you as
possible to the roads less traveled because there are many wandering
who may never make it up to the highway.21

IF Conclusion

[God] will take this hell on earth and someday show us how hell was building heaven.22—Jennie Allen

The IF conferences are full of emotional
manipulation with videos of heartbreaking stories and impassioned
pleas to do something; draw near to God, have more faith, win the
lost, help the less fortunate, etc. At various points in the 2015
conference, a speaker would burst out in an impassioned plea to do
something about the plight of humanity as if it were the fallback
position when passion was otherwise lacking.

IF’s leaders insist that biblical Christianity has failed as a viable work of God and that God and they are bringing forth a cure—New Christianity.

I fear that IF’s excellent adventure
is advertisement for a mass departure from God’s Word. Rather than
having their faith built up, participants are encouraged to question
“traditional” Christianity. And those who are giving the answers—the
IF women—are unfortunately getting their information from emergents and mystics who present a different gospel and another Jesus.

It is addictive, this linguistic confection.
The mind is overcome with giddiness. But is it of God? Or is it rather
a “beautiful” seduction? I believe the latter is true.

 Video footage shows an anti-Trump agitator punching and knocking out a
Trump supporter during a mini-riot at Portland Airport over the weekend.
The incident took place on Sunday during demonstrations against Trump’s travel ban on individuals from terror-linked countries.
The clip shows anti-Trump protesters pushing and shoving their way into the airport aggressively as they yell “peace! peace!”
A confrontation then quickly arises
before one of the anti-Trump radicals punches a man from behind,
knocking him out cold. The footage appears to show two anti-Trump protesters taking a swing at the same victim.

subsequently emerged that the victim, 39-year-old Grant Chisholm, a
member of the Bible Believers group, was hit with “something metallic”.

“They almost killed me tonight,” Chisholm told the Oregonian.

some of the anti-Trump protesters appear shocked at the violence and
denounce it, others are heard quite clearly celebrating the attack.
“That’s how you talk to a Nazi! That’s right!” screams one, before gloating, “Your boy got knocked out!”
“Don’t lose the propaganda war!” shouts another, presumably aware that the attack makes anti-Trump demonstrators look bad.
“Wooo! Hunt the Nazis!” screams another man in celebration of the vicious assault.
“That’s right Nazi boy! Where’s your f***ing fuhrer now bitch!” yells another.
add insult to injury, the demonstrators then began chanting “peaceful
protest!” as the victim lay prostrate on the floor of the airport.
seems probable that the legitimization of the attack was fueled by the
mainstream media’s veneration of the violent attack on alt-right leader
RIchard Spencer, who was punched in the face during an unprovoked attack
at the inauguration.
Outlets like Newsweek and The Nation
lauded the idea that punching people in the face was acceptable and to
be encouraged, so long as you claim they’re a “Nazi”. Using violence to
advance a political cause is otherwise known as terrorism.
The incident follows similar violence

supporters were viciously attacked by self-proclaimed anarchists and
far-left anti-Trump rioters.

Despite their outrage over President Donald Trump’s executive
order barring refugees from seven primarily Muslim countries, numerous
far-left Democrats once opposed admitting refugees fleeing the collapse
of South Vietnam.

While citizens of South Vietnam sought
refuge in the United States following their country’s defeat by
communist forces from North Vietnam, many liberal Democrats opposed efforts by Republican President Gerald Ford to admit them.
group of Democrats included then-Governor of California Jerry Brown
(who currently serves as the state’s governor), then-Delaware Senator
Joe Biden, former Presidential candidate and South Dakota Senator George
McGovern, and New York Representative Elizabeth Holtzman.

“As a rookie governor when Saigon fell in 1975 and the U.S. was
flying Vietnamese refugees to America, Brown was outspokenly opposed,” reported the Los Angeles Times in 2015.

about saying, ‘Let’s bring in 500,000 more people’ when we can’t take

refugees from landing at Travis Air Force Base near San Francisco.
Julia Taft, who directed Ford’s Task Force on Indochinese refugee resettlement, told author Larry Engelmann in his book, Tears Before the Rain: An Oral History of the Fall of South Vietnam, “The new governor of California, Jerry Brown, was very concerned about refugees settling in his state.”
“Our biggest problem came from California,” Taft said during an interview
with NPR in 2007.”They didn’t want any of these refugees, because they
had also unemployment. They had already a large number of foreign-born
people there.”
“They had – they said they had too many Hispanics, too many people on welfare, they didn’t want these people.”
his attempt to settle Vietnamese refugees, President Ford also met
resistance from many liberal Democratic members of Congress.
New York Representative Elizabeth Holtzman opposed helping the
refugees, arguing “some of her constituents felt that the same
assistance and compassion was not being shown to the elderly, unemployed
and poor in this country.”
Delaware Senator (and, most recently,
Vice President of the United States) Joe Biden tried to stall passage
of the refugee bill in the Senate, complaining
that he needed more details about the refugee situation because the
Ford administration “had not informed Congress adequately about the
number of refugees.”
Pennsylvania Representative Joshua Eilberg,
the chairman of the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship and
International Law, accused President Ford of acting “with unnecessary
haste” in organizing the airlift of orphans from collapsing South
South Dakota Senator George McGovern, who was decisively
defeated by Richard Nixon in the 1972 Presidential election, went so far
as to introduce a bill to assist refugees who wished to return to the
country, despite its occupation by North Vietnamese Communist forces,
suggesting most of the refugees “would be better off going back to their
own land.” 


 Trump Defends Refugee Order: 
“Nothing Nice About Searching For Terrorists”
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

President Trump took to Twitter Monday to defend his
temporary migrant ban from 7 countries known to host radical Islamic
terrorists who have stated their intention to use the refugee crisis to
gain entry to the US.

Trump noted that the problems with
the travel chaos at some airports are not because of fallout from the
ban, but rather due to a Delta computer outage:

added that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has informed the
President that “all is going well with very few problems”
Trump rounded off the second tweet with the words “MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN.”

President issued a third announcement declaring that there is “nothing
nice about searching for terrorists before they can enter our country.”
Trump stated that he was carrying out policies he had promised during his campaign and urged detractors to “Study the world!”

President also defended the fact that the 90 day ban was not announced
ahead of time, saying it would have provided advance warning to

aides have praised the restraining order, which bars the admission of
Syrian refugees and suspends travel to the United States from Syria,
Iraq, Iran and four other countries.
One official told reporters “It really is a massive success story in terms of implementation on every single level.”
a press briefing, the official who asked to remain anonymous, urged the
media to stop “false, misleading, inaccurate, hyperventilating”
coverage of the “fractional, marginal, minuscule percentage” of
travelers who were “set aside for further questioning”.

 While Democrats and former Obama administration officials have decried the policy, it has been noted that Trump is using an Obama administration law, the same Obama DHS policy, and has identified the same 7 countries for a 90-day visa suspension that were picked out by The Obama administration under the Terrorist Travel Prevention Act.

“Windsor Castle has cancelled Changing the Guard
ceremonies amid fears of a terror attack after devastating incidents in
Berlin and Nice last year.

The longstanding tradition will no longer take place on Saturdays due
to concerns over the possibility that jihadists could target the
thousands of tourists who gather to enjoy the show.

A tragic example of civilizational jihad: the weekend ceremony that
draws the most tourists, a ceremony representative of British culture
and history, is nixed because of the terror that was cast into the
hearts of the disbelievers by jihadists within. The Changing of the
Guard is said to be “one of the highlights of a visit to Windsor Castle.”

“Changing the Guard weekend ceremonies AXED amid fears of a Berlin-style TERROR ATTACK”, by Harry Walker, Express, January 29, 2017:

Two major truck attacks have shaken Europe over the past year.

In December, 12 people were murdered and 50 injured after a terrorist
ploughed a truck through a busy Christmas market in Berlin at high

And in July, 86 people were brutally killed and hundreds more hurt
after a cowardly jihadi drove a lorry into a crowd celebrating Bastille
Day in Nice.

Thames Valley Police ordered top military officials to alter the
ceremonial timetable avoid the busiest times in the week in the wake of
the Berlin attack.

Troops will now only perform the ceremony on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The Obama administration’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson announced on
January 6 that he had determined that U.S. elections “should be
designated as a subsector of the existing Government Facilities critical infrastructure sector.” Johnson’s statement went on to say:

By “election infrastructure,” we mean
storage facilities, polling places, and centralized vote tabulations
locations used to support the election process, and information and
communications technology to include voter registration databases,
voting machines, and other systems to manage the election process and
report and display results on behalf of state and local governments.

In other words, DHS would assert its authority over virtually all
aspects of elections.
The memo also had assurances that this would not
be a federal takeover, but the cosmetic assurances contradict the memo’s
wording, particularly the self-declared, open-ended definition of what
would comprise the election infrastructure. Also fueling the fires of
concern is the history of federal takeovers. Federal takeovers in the
past have been replete with soothing statements saying they are not
takeovers during the initial phases.

Within days, the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) issued a statement
describing DHS’s announcement as “legally and historically
unprecedented, raising many questions and concerns.” NASS’s statement
went on to say:

State and local autonomy over elections
is our greatest asset against malicious cyberattacks and manipulation.

Our decentralized, low-connectivity electoral process is inherently
designed to withstand such threats.

Further reaction by state election officials has been overwhelmingly in opposition to this federal takeover. Numerous posts on the website indicate widespread opposition by Secretaries of State and other voting officials, both Republican and Democrat.

The opposition to this attempted federal power grab is gratifying to
those who oppose encroachment by the federal government into what is
clearly the domain of the states. Particularly gratifying is the
statement explaining that decentralization of the electoral processes
and low levels of electronic connectivity are actually security
strengths in our elections. These statements by NASS are a welcome dose
of electoral sanity compared to recent advocacies for Internet voting
and secure transmission of precinct vote counts, both of which increase
centralization and electronic connectivity.

The New American has published numerous articles with
criticisms of Internet voting and, in reporting from Iowa at last year’s
Republican presidential caucuses, questioned the wisdom of secure transmission of precinct results:

While no one should be upset with quick
and accurate reporting, there is no reason given why this app should
work “securely.” Why should publicly disseminated information be
transmitted securely? If everyone has a right to know this information,
why should it be secured? The answer is, it shouldn’t.

There is a possibility that this growing opposition may lead to a
resolution against the power grab at next month’s NASS Winter Conference
in Washington, D.C.

But one argument that is missing from the debate is
constitutionality. This attempted federal action is blatantly
unconstitutional. Apologists for federal intervention in state elections
have quoted Article I, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution, which says:

The Times, Places and Manner of holding
Elections for Senators and Representatives, shall be prescribed in each
State by the Legislature thereof; but the Congress may at any time by
law make or alter such Regulations except for the Place of Chusing

Alexander Hamilton, in The Federalist, No. 59, addressed the
intent of this provision in the U.S. Constitution. It does allow for
Congress to alter state election laws, but as Hamilton explained, this
was primarily to ensure the states would hold elections for federal
offices thereby ensuring there would not be a coalition of states
over-powering the Congress by failing to elect Congressmen :

But with regard to the federal House of
Representatives, there is intended to be a general election of members
once in two years. If the State legislatures were to be invested with an
exclusive power of regulating these elections, every period of making
them would be a delicate crisis in the national situation, which might
issue in a dissolution of the Union, if the leaders of a few of the most
important States should have entered into a previous conspiracy to
prevent an election.

Hamilton further explained that the power to alter state election
laws was not intended to allow the federal government to stretch it so
far as to allow Congress to pass laws making the federal government the
regulator of state elections:

Suppose an article had been introduced
into the Constitution, empowering the United States to regulate the
elections for the particular States, would any man have hesitated to
condemn it, both as an unwarrantable transposition of power, and as a
premeditated engine for the destruction of the State governments?

Hopefully, the opposition to this attempted federal takeover of
elections will not only be stopped, but will lead to eventually
dismantling such unconstitutional federal bureaucracies as the Federal
Election Commission (FEC) and the U.S. Election Assistance Commission
(EAC), which are currently assuming regulatory authority over state

Did billionaire speculator George Soros, President Barack Obama,
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden, and
Obama/Clinton adviser John Podesta conspire to overthrow the
conservative Pope Benedict XVI and replace him with a radical, Pope
Francis? Did they use America’s intelligence agencies, and our nation’s
diplomatic machinery, political muscle, and financial power to coerce
and blackmail “regime change” in the Roman Catholic Church?

Far from being some wild conspiracy theory, there is sound prima
facie evidence to indicate that this is a serious effort to expose a
political scandal of the highest order, involving flagrant, criminal
abuse of power at the top levels of the U.S. government.
A group of
respected Catholic lay leaders have sent a letter to President Donald
Trump urging him to launch an official investigation into the activities
of the above mentioned individuals (and others) who appear to have been
involved in this alleged Vatican coup. They cite eight specific
questions they seek to have answered concerning suspect events that led
to the resignation of Pope Benedict, the first such papal abdication in
700 years.

“Specifically, we have reason to believe that a Vatican ‘regime
change’ was engineered by the Obama administration,” say the
petitioners, in their January 20 letter to President Trump. The five
signatories to the letter, first published in the Catholic newspaper/weblog, The Remnant, are: Lieutenant Colonel David L. Sonnier, US Army (Retired); Michael J. Matt, editor of The Remnant:
Christopher A. Ferrara, author, attorney, and president of the American
Catholic Lawyers Association, Inc.; Chris Jackson,;
and, Elizabeth Yore, Esq., Founder of YoreChildren.

“We were alarmed to discover,” their letter notes, “that, during the
third year of the first term of the Obama administration your previous
opponent, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and other government
officials with whom she associated proposed a Catholic ‘revolution’ in
which the final demise of what was left of the Catholic Church in
America would be realized.” The letter includes footnote links that take
the reader to documents and news stories underscoring their charges and
pointed questions. It first directs attention to the
Soros-Clinton-Podesta e-mails disclosed last year by WikiLeaks, in which
Podesta and other “progressives” discussed ending the “middle ages
dictatorship” in the Catholic Church. Regarding the e-mails in question,
The New American reported last October:

Podesta, a longtime Clinton
adviser/confidante and hand-picked top activist for left-wing funder
George Soros, revealed in a 2011 e-mail that he and other activists were
working to effect a “Catholic Spring” revolution within the Catholic
Church, an obvious reference to the disastrous “Arab Spring” coups
organized that same year by the Obama-Clinton-Soros team that
destabilized the Middle East and brought radical Islamist regimes and
terrorist groups to power in the region. The Podesta e-mail is a
response to another Soros-funded radical — Sandy Newman, founder of the
“progressive” Voices for Progress. Newman had written to Podesta seeking
advice on the best way to “plant the seeds of the revolution” in the
Catholic Church, which he described as a “middle ages [sic]
dictatorship.” The issue that appeared to be the cause of Newman’s
e-mail was opposition by U.S. Catholic Bishops to the federally mandated
contraceptive coverage in ObamaCare.

In their letter to President Trump, the concerned Catholics write:
“Approximately a year after this e-mail discussion, which was never
intended to be made public, we find that Pope Benedict XVI abdicated
under highly unusual circumstances and was replaced by a pope whose
apparent mission is to provide a spiritual component to the radical
ideological agenda of the international left.  The Pontificate of Pope
Francis has subsequently called into question its own legitimacy on a
multitude of occasions.”

“We remain puzzled by the behavior of this ideologically charged
Pope, whose mission seems to be one of advancing secular agendas of the
left rather than guiding the Catholic Church in Her sacred mission,”
they say, expressing the thoughts, undoubtedly, of innumerable Catholics
worldwide. “It is simply not the proper role of a Pope to be involved
in politics to the point that he is considered to be the leader of the
international left.”

The Catholic quintet began their missive to President Trump with the
famous quote attributed to French historian Alexis de Tocqueville:
“America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good,
America will cease to be great.”

“While we share your stated goal for America,” they write, “we
believe that the path to ‘greatness’ is for America to be ‘good’ again,
to paraphrase de Tocqueville. We understand that good character cannot
be forced on people, but the opportunity to live our lives as good
Catholics has been made increasingly difficult by what appears to be a
collusion between a hostile United States government and a pope who
seems to hold as much ill will towards followers of perennial Catholic
teachings as he seems to hold toward yourself.”

They continue:

With all of this in mind, and wishing the
best for our country as well as for Catholics worldwide, we believe it
to be the responsibility of loyal and informed United States Catholics
to petition you to authorize an investigation into the following
– To what end was the National Security Agency monitoring the conclave that elected Pope Francis?
– What other covert operations were
carried out by US government operatives concerning the resignation of
Pope Benedict or the conclave that elected Pope Francis?
– Did US government operatives have contact with the “Cardinal Danneels Mafia”?
– International monetary transactions
with the Vatican were suspended during the last few days prior to the
resignation of Pope Benedict. Were any U.S. Government agencies involved
in this?
– Why were international monetary
transactions resumed on February 12, 2013, the day after Benedict XVI
announced his resignation? Was this pure coincidence?
– What actions, if any, were actually
taken by John Podesta, Hillary Clinton, and others tied to the Obama
administration who were involved in the discussion proposing the
fomenting of a “Catholic Spring”?
– What was the purpose and nature of the
secret meeting between Vice President Joseph Biden and Pope Benedict XVI
at the Vatican on or about June 3, 2011?
– What roles were played by George Soros
and other international financiers who may be currently residing in
United States territory?

It is likely that very few Americans, including American Catholics,
are aware of these matters, in the slightest degree. Although the
WikiLeaks, DCLeaks, and Snowden revelations have made most of this
planet’s inhabitants aware that the NSA routinely (and illegally) has
scooped up billions of phone calls, e-mails, and text messages, very
little media coverage has focused on the revelations concerning the NSA
spying on Pope Benedict and the cardinals of the conclave that elected
Pope Francis in 2013 (see here and here).

Architects of Subversion

What about the secret “Cardinal Danneels Mafia” referred to above? According to the Catholic blogspot Rorate Caeli,
“The election of Jorge Bergoglio was the fruit of secret meetings that
cardinals and bishops, organized by Carlo Maria Martini, held for years
at St. Gall in Switzerland.” That is the claim of
Jürgen Mettepenningen and Karim Schelkens, the authors of a recently
published authorized biography of the Belgian
Cardinal Godfried Danneels, who refer to the group of cardinals and
bishops as the “Mafia-club.”

Cardinal Danneels himself, in a video recorded for the book, admits
to taking part in the secret club of cardinals that were in opposition
to Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict). He refers to it as “a Mafia club
whose name was St. Gall.” In addition to Danneels, this “Mafia club”
reportedly included Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, Dutch
bishop Adriaan Van Luyn, German cardinals Walter Kasper and Karl Lehman,
the Italian cardinal Achille Silvestrini, Britain’s Cardinal Basil
Hume, and other liberal-left churchmen. Cardinal Danneels, a Belgian,
has long been viewed as a key subversive in the Church prelature for
undermining traditional Catholic teaching against abortion,
homosexuality, and “gay marriage,” as well as for his efforts to protect
pedophiles in the clergy.

One name not mentioned in the recent letter of concerned Catholics to
President Trump, but certain to surface as a key culprit in any
substantive investigation, is former chairman of Goldman Sachs
International Peter Sutherland. Mr. Sutherland, an Insider’s Insider
among the globalist banking establishment, was brought in to help
“reform” the Vatican Bank, which was akin to putting Dracula in charge
of the blood bank.

Like Joseph Biden, Jerry Brown, and Nancy Pelosi, Sutherland is a
prominent political figure who is regularly described in media accounts
as a “practicing Catholic,” which means he wears his religion when it is
expedient to do so. As attorney general of Ireland, Sutherland helped
to scuttle that Catholic country’s legal restrictions on abortion and
favored the “LGBT rights” movement. He has served as a commissioner of
the European Union and  headed the Global Agreement on Tariffs and Trade
(GATT) and the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Here are some of his other globalist credentials, as previously in The New American:

• He is a regular attendee and former Steering Committee member of the ultra-secretive, ultra-elite Bilderberg Group;
• he was European chairman of the Trilateral Commission;
• he is past chairman of British Petroleum (BP);
• he is honorary president of the
Transatlantic Policy Network (TPN), one of the principal corporatist
insider organizations promoting EU-U.S. merger through the Transatlantic
Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP);
• as a top Eurocrat, he played a lead
role in destroying national sovereignty by replacing national currencies
(and national monetary control) with the euro, as well as engineering
the “borderless Europe,” which the current migrant crisis is now proving
to have been so destructive.

For the past decade, as the United Nations special representative for International Migration, Sutherland has been a key architect,
along with with George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and other
globalists of the global scheme that has flooded Europe with the
disastrous tsunami of Muslim migrants. (Their plans, which called for a
similar migration deluge for the United States, got started under
President Obama, but have been scuttled by the election of President

The investigation that the concerned Catholics are requesting of
President Trump should be of interest to more than just Catholics. Peter
Sutherland, George Soros, and the world government movement they
represent will, if successful, wreak unimaginable havoc and devastation
upon the entire planet. The investigation — and prosecutions — cannot
begin too soon.

President Trump Readies Pen to Reverse Anti-gun Executive Orders Gun Owners of America   Gun Owners of AmericaWashington, DC -(
In one of the first pro-gun actions of his administration, President
Donald Trump is expected to shortly move to revoke Barack Obama’s
illegal actions to effectively outlaw gun collecting.

Obama’s anti-gun “executive action”
was announced on January 6, 2016 — in the wake of Obama’s unsuccessful
attempt to scapegoat law-abiding gun owners for the actions of a Muslim
terrorist in San Bernardino.

Obama’s action was implemented as a “clarification
because he knew that his lawless moves could never pass muster under
the rule-making procedures of the Administrative Procedures Act.
Under Obama’s now-moribund “clarification,” a gun owner could have been imprisoned for up to five years and fined $250,000 for “only one or two [firearms] transactions,” according to a White House fact sheet.
Note that, under Clinton, tens of thousands of licensees lost their licenses because they didn’t have “brick-or-mortar” stores.

in a Clinton/Obama Mutt-and-Jeff routine, Obama proposed to imprison
hobbyists who didn’t have licenses because the government refused to
issue licenses to them.

Hence, a hobbyist who bought
a firearm one day and sold it the next day at a profit could go to
prison for five years. Obviously, the intent was to create such a cloud
of ambiguity that gun owners would refrain from constitutionally
protected activity (private firearms sales), for fear that they would run afoul of Obama’s amorphous rules.
Tragically, in some cases, Obama’s unlawful actions had exactly the intended effect.
thanks to President Donald Trump, Obama’s unlawful action will soon be
repealed — as one of the priority actions of the incoming
Gun Owners of America is optimistic that this is only the first in a series of Trump actions overturning illegal Obama actions.

We are also asking for Trump administration action:

  • Removing the U.S. from the Anti-Gun UN Arms Trade Treaty;
  • Repealing bullet and gun import bans going from Obama back to George H. W. Bush’s semi-auto import ban;
  • Repealing the suspension of health privacy laws with respect to gun owners;
  • Repealing
    executive actions encouraging doctors to inquire about gun ownership
    and to enter this information into a federal health database;
  • Restoring gun rights for 257,000 law-abiding veterans;
  • Repealing Obama’s efforts to strip Social Security recipients of their guns, merely because a guardian processes their checks.

There is an old joke that goes: “What do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? Answer: A good start.”

The work of restoring the Second Amendment to its God-given status has only just begun.
But the important thing is that it has begun.

Says the Toronto Star:

U.S. President Donald Trump’s new executive order has created mass confusion around the world.

Trump’s “America first” policy is a decisive rejection of the mess
that Angela Merkel and other European leaders have created in Europe.
But the same cannot be said for Canada. Trudeau’s reaction:

On Twitter, Trudeau posted photos of himself greeting Syrian refugees, adding the words “#WelcomeToCanada.”

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will
welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength

Trump’s order also applies to Britain. While it led to uproar from
British MP’s, Prime Minister Theresa May surprisingly commented: “The
United States is responsible for the United States’s policy on
refugees.” In fact, she “refused twice to publicly condemn Mr Trump’s
ban on refugees from those seven countries earlier in the day during a
press conference in Turkey.”

Although May has expressed open support for Sharia courts in Britain despite their shocking abuses, she has also made it clear that she is reserved on flinging open the doors of the UK completely. Some of her stated views:

She warned that “millions” of people wanted to migrate to the UK.
She said Britain should focus on aid rather than helping refugees who had travelled to Europe.
She argued that immigrants could make society less “cohesive”.
She blamed immigrants for pressures on public services.
She blamed unemployment, the housing crisis, and under-investment in schools on immigration.
She claimed EU immigration was “unbalanced” and “unsustainable” – and that the rules had to change.
She suggested asylum seekers should not even be allowed into Britain before their claims were assessed.

“Trump bans Canadian dual citizens from 7 Muslim-majority countries from U.S.”, Toronto Star, by Daniel Dale, January 28, 2017:

WASHINGTON—Canadian citizens who are also citizens of
seven Muslim-majority countries have been banned from entering the
United States by President Donald Trump in a massive break from the
traditional free flow of travelers between citizens of the two

The countries targeted by Trump’s 90-day ban are Iran, Iraq, Libya,
Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. Tens of thousands of Canadians have
dual citizenship in one of them.

Trump’s Friday order even bars entry to the U.S. by permanent
residents with “green cards” who are also citizens of one of the
countries. That means, for example, that an Iranian-Canadian green card
holder who makes her home in Chicago cannot come to Canada to visit her
parents and then cross back over the U.S. border.

The order has created mass confusion around the world as governments,
businesses and ordinary people attempted to decipher just what Trump
meant. It is still not exactly clear. After the Homeland Security
Department said green card holders would be banned, a Trump official
told U.S. outlets that they could be approved on a “case-by-case basis”
and would have to check in with a government official before leaving
each time.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his ministers had not commented
directly on the order as of Saturday at 5 p.m. On Twitter, Trudeau
posted photos of himself greeting Syrian refugees, adding the words

“To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will
welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength
#WelcomeToCanada,” Trudeau wrote.

Justin Trudeau

To those fleeing persecution, terror & war, Canadians will
welcome you, regardless of your faith. Diversity is our strength
3:20 PM – 28 Jan 2017

The order has resulted in travelers with visas to enter America
being turned away from their flights and detained at U.S. airports upon
landing. One of the people detained, according to multiple U.S. news
reports, worked as an interpreter for the U.S. military in Iraq.

Air Canada, WestJet and Porter Airlines are no longer letting people
carrying passports from the seven countries board flights to the U.S.
All three are waiving their cancellation fees.

The order is a modified version of the “total” ban on Muslim entry
that Trump proposed during his campaign. It was greeted with dismay,
horror and panic by Canadians from the affected countries…..

“British passport holders in US entry battle as Donald Trump bans
travelers from seven Muslim countries and court rules those who arrived
with visas can stay”, by Ben Riley-Smith, UK Telegraph, January 28, 2017:

British citizens traveling to America on UK passports
will be blocked from entering if they have dual-citizenship with
countries targeted in Donald Trump’s refugees banned.

The US State Department said that Britons with dual nationality with
the countries Syria, Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Libya, Somalia and Yemen will be
stopped at the American border for the next 90 days.
The revelation, which broke late on Saturday night, sent Downing Street
scrambling for a response and has triggered uproar from MPs.

Politicians said tens of thousands of Britons could be caught up in
the border chaos as Mr Trump’s new immigration rules impact on holidays
and business trips.

It was unclear last night whether Theresa May was aware the rules
change was going to affect Britons despite spending hours meeting Mr
Trump and his top staff in the White House on Friday.

The US State Department said: “Travelers who have nationality or dual
nationality of one of these countries will not be permitted for 90 days
to enter the United States or be issued an immigrant or non-immigrant

“Those nationals or dual nationals holding valid immigrant or
non-immigrant visas will not be permitted to enter the United States
during this period. Visa interviews will generally not be scheduled for
nationals of these countries during this period.”

Mrs. May had refused twice to publicly condemn Mr Trump’s ban on
refugees from those seven countries earlier in the day during a press
conference in Turkey….

Trump’s executive order isn’t really a ban on Muslims entering. It is
a temporary halt on immigration from seven jihad terror hotspots. But
that is too much for Merkel, who would rather see her citizens murdered
in jihad attacks than stop the Muslim migrant influx, even though there
is an unknowable number of jihadis among the migrants. The Berlin truck
jihad massacre was not enough for Merkel. And she will see much, much

“Merkel says fight against terrorism no excuse for U.S. entry ban,” by Andrea Shalal and Andreas Rinke, Reuters, January 29, 2017:

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told U.S. President
Donald Trump that the global fight against terrorism was no excuse for
banning refugees or people from Muslim-majority countries from entering
the United States, her spokesman said on Sunday.

Steffen Seibert said Merkel had expressed her concerns to Trump
during a telephone call on Saturday and reminded him that the Geneva
Conventions require the international community to take in war refugees
on humanitarian grounds.

“She is convinced that even the necessary, decisive battle against
terrorism does not justify putting people of a specific background or
faith under general suspicion,” he said.

Seibert said the German government regrets the U.S. entry travel ban,
would review the consequences for German citizens with dual
nationalities, and would “represent their interests, if needed, vis a
vis our U.S. partners”.

The German and Dutch foreign ministers issued a joint statement on
Sunday saying they were pressing U.S. authorities to determine what the
order meant for their dual nationals.

“We are determined to protect the rights of our citizens and will
take rapid action within the European Union about the steps that are now
needed,” Germany’s Sigmar Gabriel and his Dutch counterpart Bert
Koenders said.

Trump ordered on Friday a four-month hold on allowing refugees into
the United States and temporarily banned travelers from Syria and six
other mainly Muslim countries.

Seibert’s comments were the first indication of discord over the
issue between Merkel and Trump, who had highlighted common interests
such as strengthening NATO and combating Islamist militancy in a joint
statement after their 45-minute phone call.

Thomas Oppermann, who heads the parliamentary faction of the Social
Democrats, the junior partner in Merkel’s right-center coalition, called
Trump’s order “inhumane and foolhardy” and said it would result in
significant damage to the U.S. economy.

“The order contradicts everything that makes up the United States’
good reputation as a country of immigration,” he told Die Welt
newspaper. “No one should be discriminated against because of their
religious beliefs.”…

“Christian Leaders Denounce Trump’s Plan to Favor Christian Immigrants,” by Laurie Goodstein, New York Times, January 29, 2017:

…Now Mr. Trump has followed through on his campaign
promise to rescue Christians who are suffering. The executive order he
signed on Friday gives preference to refugees who belong to a religious
minority in their country, and have been persecuted for their religion.
The president detailed his intentions during an interview with the
Christian Broadcasting Network on Friday, saying his administration is
giving priority to Christians because they had suffered “more so” than
others, “so we are going to help them.”

But if Mr. Trump had hoped for Christian leaders to break out in
cheers, that is, for the most part, not what he has heard so far. A
broad array of clergy members has strongly denounced Mr. Trump’s order
as discriminatory, misguided and inhumane. Outrage has also come from
some of the evangelical, Roman Catholic and mainline Protestant leaders
who represent the churches most active in trying to aid persecuted

By giving preference to Christians over Muslims, religious leaders
have said the executive order pits one faith against another. By barring
any refugees from entering the United States for nearly four months, it
leaves people to suffer longer in camps, and prevents families from
reuniting. Also, many religious leaders have said that putting an
indefinite freeze on refugees from Syria, and cutting the total number
of refugees admitted this year by 60,000, shuts the door to those most
in need.

“We believe in assisting all, regardless of their religious beliefs,”
said Bishop Joe S. Vásquez, the chairman of the committee on migration
for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

and refugee program of Church World Service, a ministry affiliated with
dozens of Christian denominations, called Friday a “shameful day” in
America’s history….

Separating ourselves from the hysteria over Trump’s Executive Order
on immigration, this is the crucial paragraph if you want to understand
what Trump’s Administration is doing (full text of the statement here). At the end of this article I’ll explain it line by line.

In order to protect Americans, the United States must
ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile attitudes
toward it and its founding principles. The United States cannot, and
should not, admit those who do not support the Constitution, or those
who would place violent ideologies over American law. In addition, the
United States should not admit those who engage in acts of bigotry or
hatred (including “honor” killings, other forms of violence against
women, or the persecution of those who practice religions different from
their own) or those who would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or
sexual orientation.

As we find ourselves at the end of the first week of the Trump era,
we see this weekend’s screaming press outrage over Trump’s Executive
Order and the complete shock that he’s enacting one of the core planks
of his campaign. For some reason people have been conditioned to believe
that promises made by politicians during election campaigns will all be

There’s only one thing that’s happened this weekend which anyone
should be mildly concerned about; it has to do with reports of Green
Card holders having issues at airports. It’s reasonably clear from the
text of the order that this shouldn’t be happening; either the reports
are false or rogue elements in the Immigration Service are deliberately
being overzealous to cause public issues. David French at National
Review has a very good article on the hysterical overreaction:

However, there are reports that the ban is being applied
even to green-card holders. This is madness. The plain language of the
order doesn’t apply to legal permanent residents of the U.S., and
green-card holders have been through round after round of vetting and
security checks. The administration should intervene, immediately, to
stop misapplication. If, however, the Trump administration continues to
apply the order to legal permanent residents, it should indeed be

The press have gone into a meltdown over the immediate clamping down
on movements of people from seven specific countries. Interestingly, the
only country mentioned by name in the order is Syria. Seth Frantzman
also noticed this and dug a millimetre deeper than the entire rest of the press:

Go back and read it again. Do a “ctrl-f” to find “Iraq”.
Where is “Iraq” in the order. It’s not there. Only Syria is there. So
where are the seven nations? Where is the “Muslim ban”? It turns out
this was a form of fake news, or alternative facts. Trump didn’t select
seven “Muslim-majority” countries. US President Barack Obama’s
administration selected these seven Muslim-majority countries.

The Department of Homeland Security
targeted these seven countries over the last few years as countries of
concern. In February 2016, “the Department of Homeland Security today
announced that it is continuing its implementation of the Visa Waiver
Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 with the
addition of Libya, Somalia, and Yemen as three countries of concern,
limiting Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals who have
traveled to these countries.” It noted “the three additional countries
designated today join Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria as countries subject
to restrictions for Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals.”

Central to what the press and the usual grievance mongers (CAIR,
ACLU, ADL and the usual alphabet soup of far left groups) are doing is
to draw a false analogy between refugees from the Middle East today and
Jews who tried to flee the genocide of the Nazis. Signing the order on
International Holocaust Memorial day (and making a mistake
by not specifically mentioning Jews) ensured that the press would jump
on this bandwagon. This is done with carefully constructed (sometimes
faked) photographs, especially of children. Dead child on a beach and
dazed child in a hospital: I don’t even need to include photos, these
are etched into your heads.

Back when I wrote about this in September 2015, I pointed out the enormity of this false equivalence.

So I was just wondering if I could ask something of all
those people quick to claim that Syrian refugees are the new 1930’s

UNHCR persons of concern refugee numberFor those Jews who managed to
escape Nazi Germany, where were the refugee camps, like the ones in
Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan today hosting 4,088,099 registered refugees
(6th Sept). Because I’ve never heard anyone mention them. I’m sure a lot
of Jews must have been saved in those camps.

As far as I know, in 1939 there were precisely zero Jewish countries
and zero safe and secure refugee camps. I suspect if there had been a
Jewish country or even a refugee camp it would have taken in some
refugees. Worse: the major nations of the world, especially Britain,
blocked Jews from reaching safety and sent them back to be murdered by

Interestingly, the UNHCR “Persons of concern” website
where I got my numbers from doesn’t seem to be working right now, so I
can’t check for new numbers. The main number still stands: there were no
refugee camps for Jews in 1939 and there are today many millions of
Muslim refugees in (relatively) safe camps across the Middle East.

What has changed since I wrote that post is the seething societal
problems currently ripping apart Europe. Every European nation that has
accepted refugees is going through huge internal upheavals. I scarcely
need to enumerate the problems, ranging from mass groping all the way up
to huge mass casualty terror attacks in Nice, Berlin, Paris and
elsewhere. Additionally, also since I wrote about the false equivalence,
the UK voted to leave Europe and controlling immigration was one of the
big factors in that.

Again, David French from National Review:

But don’t tell CNN’s chief national security correspondent, who last night tweeted this:

False. False. False. Religious considerations are by law part of
refugee policy. And it is entirely reasonable to give preference (though
not exclusivity) to members of minority religions. Finally, you can
read the entire executive order from start to finish, reread it, then
read it again, and you will not find a Muslim ban. It’s not there.
Nowhere. At its most draconian, it temporarily halts entry from jihadist
regions. In other words, Trump’s executive order is a dramatic
climb-down from his worst campaign rhetoric.

So I’ll come back to the very first paragraph I showed you. That is
the one that indicates what this new administration is actually
thinking. And I believe it indicates that they know exactly what they’re
doing. This isn’t something they put together in a week; this is
evidence of their entire thinking on Islam and the defence of the west.

They’re going to treat Islam as a hostile political ideology. That is
what has been needed for decades. It is the reversal of the “Islam is a
religion of peace” doctrine set in place by Bush on September 17, 2001.

In order to protect Americans, the United States
must ensure that those admitted to this country do not bear hostile
attitudes toward it and its founding principles.

That statement should, quite rightly, strike terror into the hearts
of anyone looking to promote Islamic law above the United States’
existing constitution. That is made even more explicit with the next

The United States cannot, and should not, admit
those who do not support the Constitution, or those who would place
violent ideologies over American law.

This would apply to a communist overthrow of the United States (I
guess), but the only real threat on the global stage today is the
ideology of Islamic supremacy.

In addition, the United States should not admit
those who engage in acts of bigotry or hatred (including “honor”
killings, other forms of violence against women, or the persecution of
those who practice religions different from their own) or those who
would oppress Americans of any race, gender, or sexual orientation.

If you read that paragraph and immediately think #MuslimBan, then
you’re bringing your own impressions of Islam. The text doesn’t mention
Islam, but we all know that the leading ideology that sanctions bigotry,
hatred, violence against women, and oppression is not Buddhism.

This section, again without mentioning Islam or Muslims, arrives at
the heart of the problem. Islamic values always lead to intolerance.
Islam’s guiding texts are all fundamentally devoted to separating the world between believers and non-believers.
All of our liberal freedoms and our equality stem from a
Judeo-Christian belief that all men are created in the image of God and
are equal before equitable laws. That is not at the heart of Islam.

That same Islamic ideology led 56 member states of the UN to ignore
the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and replace it with the Cairo Declaration of Human Rights in Islam, which opens with:

Reaffirming the civilizing and historical role of the
Islamic Ummah which God made the best nation that has given mankind a
universal and well-balanced civilization in which harmony is established
between this life and the hereafter and knowledge is combined with
faith; and the role that this Ummah should play to guide a humanity
confused by competing trends and ideologies and to provide solutions to
the chronic problems of this materialistic civilization.

The idea that God made Islam the best nation is not a statement of
equality. It is a supremacist statement. The Constitution of the United
States doesn’t and obviously shouldn’t begin with “God made White
America the Best Nation”. Every Islamic nation considers Islam to be
superior to any other ideology.

That is what we are dealing with: 56 nation states and millions of
indoctrinated followers who are religiously compelled (with a depth of
fervor the godless left can no longer comprehend) bound to profess the
supremacy of their civilization, whilst anyone with open eyes knows the
United States Constitution is one of the greatest acts of foundational
liberal freedom in history.

America is an astonishing social experiment. If it continues to open
its borders, it will be overrun like Europe by those who desire its
destruction, and could quite literally sink back into darkness. Whilst
being so harshly condemned by those whose freedoms they are safeguarding
so determinedly, Trump’s team, in its first week, has put out a
document the importance of which might not be fully understood for

 WASHINGTON — A Republican representative from 
Georgia has introduced a resolution that would recognize the unborn as 
being persons from the moment of conception.

Rep. Jody Hice, former pastor of  Bethlehem First Baptist Church and The Summit Church, presented H.R. 586 days before the 44th year of Roe v. Wade, also known as the “Sanctity of Human Life Act.”

“[T]he Congress declares that—(A) the right to life guaranteed by the
Constitution is vested in each human being, and is the paramount and
most fundamental right of a person; and (B) the life of each human being
begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent,
irrespective of sex, health, function or disability, defect, stage of
biological development, or condition of dependency, at which time every
human being shall have all the legal and constitutional attributes and
privileges of personhood,” it reads in part.

The resolution also affirms that Congress and each state has
the authority “to protect the lives of all human beings residing in its
respective jurisdictions.”

The Act has a number of co-sponsors, including Reps. Barry Loudermilk
(R-Ga.), Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.), Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), Jeff Duncan
(R-S.C.), Bill Johnson (R-Ohio) and Blake Farenthold (R-Texas).

Hice said in a statement on Tuesday that the resolution recognizes
the inalienable right to life already outlined in the founding documents
of the nation.

the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers affirmed that
everyone is endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,
chief among them being life,” he noted. “Today, with the right to life
under attack, now more than ever before, we must stand up as advocates
for the unborn. Our culture must affirm the value of the weak and
vulnerable in our society, beginning with our children.”

“With that in mind, I introduced the Sanctity of Human Life Act,
which rightly defines life as beginning at conception,” Hice stated. “I
am proud of this legislation and proud to be a voice for the unborn with
clarity and conviction.”

As previously reported,
just last week, the U.S. House of Representatives advanced the No
Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure
Act, which would place a permanent ban on taxpayer funding of abortions,
as outlined in the Hyde Amendment.

The Act had been introduced by Rep. Chris Smith, R-New Jersey, a
longtime supporter of the Amendment, which was first passed in 1976 to
ban the use of Medicaid funds for abortion, with the exceptions of rape,
incest and the life of the mother.

funds authorized or appropriated by federal law, and none of the funds
in any trust fund to which funds are authorized or appropriated by
federal law, shall be expended for any abortion,” the No Taxpayer Funding Act reads in part.

‘‘None of the funds authorized or appropriated by federal law, and
none of the funds in any trust fund to which funds are authorized or
appropriated by federal law, shall be expended for health benefits
coverage that includes coverage of abortion,” it outlines.

Hice voted in favor of the Act, remarking, “No American should ever
be forced to pay for abortions. Period. The Hyde Amendment has been a
staple of protecting the unborn for 40 years, saving more than two
million lives, including 99,350 lives in the State of Georgia. Needless
to say, it is vital that we keep it in place.”

Psalm 139:13-16 reads, “For Thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast
covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise Thee, for I am fearfully
and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Thy works, and that my soul knoweth
right well. My substance was not hid from Thee when I was made in
secret and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine
eyes did see my substance, yet being un-perfect, and in Thy book all my
members were written, which in continuance were fashioned when as yet
there was none of them.”

three decades since Ronald Reagan opened the flood gates for illegal
aliens, FINALLY both states and the federal government are starting
to crack down on the myth known as sanctuary cities. Like San Francisco,
the City of Sodom, where a young woman in the prime of her life was
gunned down by a career criminal illegal alien. Kathleen Steinle’s last
words as her father held her were “Help me, dad”.
waste of human skin who killed that innocent woman claims he was using
the stolen gun to shoot at sea lions and hit her instead. I guarantee
you if that illegal alien had succeeded in killing a sea lion all hell
would have broken loose in outrage by the same useful fools who defend
protecting illegals. They would have turned on him in a NY minute.
Americans continue to be murdered, robbed and raped by ILLEGAL aliens,
the U.S. Congress regardless of which party controls both chambers,
have played politics. The criminal impostor who just left the White
House could care less about a white female being murdered in the City
of Sodom. If the victim had a been black, Barry Soetoro aka Obama would

Greg Abbott [R-TX] has taken a hard line against sanctuary cities in
this state. Currently he’s engaged in a legal battle with one sheriff
who loves, adores and protects criminal illegal aliens:
Co. Sheriff Sally Hernandez is facing removal from office after defying
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s call to end “sanctuary city”
policies which aid criminal aliens…
you claim you have no legal power to comply with ICE detainers. That
proves too much, of course, because by your own admission, Travis County
Sheriff’s Office will honor some ICE detainers, for example when the
alien is charged with or convicted of capital murder,” Abbott
wrote. “You have the exact same legal authority to honor ICE detainers
for capital murder cases as you do for other crimes that you personally
deem unworthy of enforcement.”
your reckless policy, for example, dangerous criminal aliens convicted
of felonies like murder, aggravated assault, human trafficking, including
child sex trafficking, aggravated kidnapping, including sexual performance
by a child or indecency with a child, dangerous gang activities…,”
he added.”
Sheriff had this to say: ‘Hernandez declared that honoring the detainers
would make the “community less safe by driving people into the
Sally. It’s not about driving people into the shadows. It’s about upholding
our federal immigration laws and getting rapists and murderers off the
streets in not only Austin but the rest of our state. We want to flush
them out and get them deported before they can harm one more American.

acquiescence”), who states:
invaded Iraq and displaced people. We have since relied on Iraqis as
partners to fight against ISIS. If we don’t want to deploy thousands
of troops to fight these terrorist groups, then we rely on partners
in Iraq and elsewhere. This [Trump’s] policy sends a very negative message
to countries where we will need indigenous support from translators
and peacekeepers.”
is, Iraqis have no responsibility for the security of their own country
or an interest in combating radical Islam and will only accept our assistance
in the effort to free Iraq from the threat of ISIS on the condition
that we re-locate Iraqis to the U.S.
has its place, but not as blackmail, especially, as in this case, when
it conflicts with protecting U.S. citizens. American foreign policy
has, for too long, been the captive of a liberal need for emotionally
satisfying gestures and a willingness to subvert our interests by submitting
to the psychological demands of another culture.”
the foolish Prime Minister of Canada is happy to welcome refugees from
terrorist supported countries, they should all head there: Prime
Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada welcomes refugees
. I guess Canada’s
newest ‘rock star’ hasn’t been paying attention to the destruction of
Europe and countries like Sweden:
until a few thousand women in his country are raped by Muslim refugees
who believe it’s their right to take what they want. Here’s a hint,
PM Trudeau: They love blondes with blue eyes. It’s a fact blondes in
countries like Sweden have been dying their hair a dark color because
of fear of being raped by Muslim refugees.
the San Bernadino killers? The husband and wife team? Think those San
Bernadino killers swam here from Afghanistan? Now they can fly into
Canada posing as refugees. We know from factual and documented incidents
too many Muslim terrorists pose as refugees. OUR national security and
the safety of the people of this country take precedence, as Col. Sellin
said above, over ’emotionally satisfying gestures’.
Refugees are still pouring into our country: 1,960
refugees enter U.S. on Trump’s watch
as he battles special interest
groups who don’t give a damn about YOUR safety or your family. Not to
mention they go straight to federal welfare because they don’t speak
our language, they refuse to assimilate and demand we flush our culture
and traditions to suit their fake religion.
you agree with President Trump’s executive action then
let him know

  Rahm Emanuel Rather Have More Gun Control 
Donald Trump once again warned Democratic Party officials in Chicago —
especially Mayor Rahm Emanuel — and the news media that if they can’t
stop the Windy City’s climbing murder and violent crime rate, Trump’s
Washington, D.C. team will take action to protect the people — whites,
blacks, Latinos and Asians — from the street predators, gang-bangers
and other criminals.
Emanuel said that he welcomes the chance to partner with federal agencies
to curb violence in Chicago. Then he said that illegal immigrants are
welcome, as well and his city will remain a sanctuary.
He also blamed
the high crime rate on the relative ease with which the people in Chicago
purchase illegal weapons including assault rifles. He blames other states
in the region that have less-stringent gun control policies.
a number of conservatives claim that policing and crimefighting policies
and actions — the police function — are relegated to the individual
states, it has become commonplace for the U.S. Department of Justice to
go into cities, towns and counties to investigate local cops and police
believes that these so-called police racism and misconduct cases are at
best unnecessary, at worst they are fraudulent based on political correctness
and the liberal-left’s anti-police, anti-military standards.

Police Department released year-end crime stats on New Year’s Day.
It showed that Chicago’s homicide numbers were worse than the larger
cities of New York and Los Angeles combined.
murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762
murders in 2016. If Mayor can’t do it he must ask for Federal help!”
the future White House occupant tweeted.
his campaign against race-baiting Democrat Hillary Clinton, Trump often
highlighted the plight of blacks in Chicago. He promised them a safer,
economically sound community free from gangs, drugs and violence. Whenever
he asked for their votes, Trump would say, “Give me a chance [as
president]. What have you got to lose?”
Chicago Crime Statistics Released
Illinois, released its annual crime report for 2016, arguably one of the
most violent years for big cities in more than a decade. According to
the statistics, there were 762
homicides in 2016
with a daily average of two murders. It is the most
killings committed in that city in more than two decades.
which has the third largest city population in the country, also witnessed
upwards of 1,000 more shooting incidents than it experienced in 2015,
according to statistics provided by the beleaguered Chicago Police Department.
numbers are staggering especially the dozens of shootings and monthly
death tolls that weren’t seen in perhaps 20 years. The increase
in last year’s homicides compared to 2015, when 485 were reported,
is the largest spike in 60 years,” noted Chicago’s Top Cop
Edward “Eddie” Johnson.
Superintendent Johnson said during a press conference on New Year’s
Day, “Chicago is among many U.S. cities that have [seen] a spike
in violence, including [a spike] in attacks on police.”
He told
reporters that the anger at police over their alleged use of excessive
force, especially deadly physical force, has actually “emboldened
criminals” to commit even more violent crimes.
Johnson doesn’t say it — being a good Democrat in a city practically
bought and paid for by the Democratic Party Machine — many believe
that President Barack Obama, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former Attorney
General Eric Holder, and former Obama White House minion, now Chicago’s
mayor, Rahm Emmanuel may share a large part of the blame for increased
friction between minorities and law enforcement.
He also
said it’s becoming clearer to criminals that they have little to
fear from the criminal justice system, which is run by mostly liberal
Democrats. For example, not a week goes by without a news story describing
another large-scale prison release by Obama, including those illegal aliens
released after serving time for violent crimes who remain on the streets
of Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and other large U.S. cities.
it’s those cities that consider themselves “sanctuary cities”
that are seeing the highest increases in street crime. But rather than
address that issue, Attorney General Loretta Lynch spends millions of
tax dollars and man-hours investigating police departments and officers.
on Sunday, the CBS News show 60 Minutes made “some outlandish,
and illogical accusations” against the Chicago
Police Department
: The report blamed the police officers for the increase
in Chicago’s murder rate and violent crimes such as armed robberies,
rapes, aggravated assaults and other serious offenses.
to officials at the organization Blue Lives Matter, “The introduction
to the [60 Minutes] segment described Chicago as being a city that more
closely resembles a ‘war zone’ as opposed to one of America’s
great cities.” They also said, “It’s [being] widely
reported that Chicago had 762 murders, and 1,400 people wounded by gun
shots during the year 2016. And 60 Minutes described the Chicago Police
Department as being an agency on its heels.”

and retired law enforcement officers. 
segment was hosted by CBS Correspondent Bill Whitaker who wasted no time
pinpointing what he described as being an “alarming cause”
for the drastic uptick in murders on the streets of Chicago. Whitaker
passionately (some might say ignorantly) placed the full blame at the
feet of the courageous men and women who proudly wear the badge and patrol
this described “war zone that is Chicago,” the group wrote
in their statement.
Lives Matter’s officials stated:
Whitaker revealed some statistics that were obtained from inside the Chicago
Police Department. The data reveals an annual comparison of 2016 and 2015
pertaining to the police activity levels. It also showed that in August
2015 police officers stopped and questioned 49,257 people as a result
of pro-active policing measures. A year later that number decreased to
8,859, which is about an 80% decline in people stopped and questioned.”

 Todd Green
 Todd Green is serving as a Franklin Fellow and advisor on Islamophobia in Europe.
 Todd Green visiting with Representative Keith Ellison (MN) in Washington, DC.
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

“I have lots of relationships with Muslims. They have taught me compassion and peace,” stated Luther College Professor Todd Green during a January 22 presentation at McLean, Virginia’s Lewinsville Presbyterian Church (LPC). Here this self-proclaimed “scholar of Islamophobia” and “anti-Islamophobia activist
reiterated his fantasy that interpersonal relationships with Muslims
can refute supposed “Islamophobic” prejudices arising from Western sins
like imperialism.

Green, author of the 2015 book The Fear of Islam:  An Introduction to Islamophobia in the West, is currently a Franklin Fellow
at the United States Department of State, where Green “assesses and
analyzes Islamophobia in Europe.” He has had ample opportunity to
expound the book’s themes in various appearances in radio (see here, here, and here) and online, as well as public presentations such as at the 2016 Peacestock conference of the leftwing Veterans for Peace. He also writes for left-leaning publications such as the Huffington Post and Sojourners.

Without specific definitions, Green has concluded that “Islamophobia
is an irrational fear, hostility, or hatred of Muslims and Islam” and is
“one of the most acceptable prejudices in the United States today.”
This presents a “cultural racism” in which “Muslims are essentialized;
they are treated as a race,” he elaborated at LPC. Nonetheless, he has
previously vaguely qualified that critical study of any such posited
bigotry “is not an attempt to cut off critical conversations about

Green has assessed that “imperialism is one of the main factors
driving Islamophobia in the past and in the present,” resulting from
historical “imperial tension and imperial competition” between
Christians and Muslims. “In the seventh century when Islam came on the
scene, it spread very quickly and Islamic empires developed quite
quickly,” he has stated, while leaving unmentioned the Islamic
supremacist jihad doctrine
that propelled such conquests. With shifting power balances between
Western and Islamic civilization across the centuries, Islamic empires
gave way to the European colonialism that subjugated many Islamic lands.

Westerners colonizing Muslims, Green has argued, realized that “with
imperial projects there must be some ‘other’, and this ‘other’ must be
demonized and dehumanized in order for the imperial nation to galvanize
popular support.” The “neo-imperialism” of rival Cold War superpowers
followed European colonialism. Even post-Cold War, “much of U.S. foreign
policy is incomprehensible apart from understanding that we are still
engaged in the imperial project.”

Casting Muslims as passive victims of Western aggression, Green
believes that such stereotypes influence Americans today who “have seen
and continue to see Muslims in many parts of the world as obstacles to
our imperial ambitions.” In the Huffington Post, he emphasizes
the “history of Western interventionism in Muslim-majority contexts,
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the U.S. exploitation of energy
resources in the Middle East, the legacy of European colonialism.” The
oft-debated question “Is ISIS [the Islamic State in Iraq and (Greater)
Syria] Islamic?” is merely a “thinly veiled form of Islamophobia
intended to heighten our fears of Islam while absolving the U.S. of its
own responsibility in contributing to the rise to ISIS.”

“Religion is rarely the driving force behind terrorism,” Green’s article claims, befitting his oft-disproved analysis
that socioeconomic disadvantage, not Islamic doctrine, lies behind
jihadist violence. At LPC, he described Muslims joining ISIS because of
factors like discrimination in Europe or oppression from Middle Eastern
dictatorships, just as socioeconomic factors might influence Westerners
to join rightwing movements. “White Christians have an empire to hide
behind.  Many of these young men joining ISIS don’t.  When you are
politically disenfranchised you will sometimes find other ways to find

In identifying “Islamophobia’s” past and present purveyors, Green resorts to well-worn, hackneyed tropes. He embraces the fraudulent Edward Said’s Orientalism
thesis that “knowledge about Islam coming from Orientalism was being
distorted by the imperial project.” Past Western Islamic studies served
not intellectual inquiry, but rather “knowledge for the sake of control”
over Muslims.

Green today castigates “professional Islamophobes” supposedly motivated by pure malice, such as Pamela Geller, Daniel Pipes, Jihad Watch’s Robert Spencer, and Geert Wilders.
“From the time they wake up in the morning to the time they go to bed
at night, their job is to figure out ‘how can I better demonize Muslims
today.’” While “Islamophobia” often appears among conservatives, it is
“more dangerous in the way it manifests itself among those who claim to
be liberal,” such as talk show host Bill Maher, Green noted at LPC. He meanwhile makes the common yet baseless claim
that “Islamophobia” forms a well-funded “powerful industry,” while the
“anti-Islamophobia side does not pay quite as well” for individuals like

Contrastingly, in Green’s estimation Islamic belief seemingly can
cause no harm, as he rejects “misconceptions” that “sharia law is
somehow incompatible with democracy or with the West.” “The overwhelming
majority of Muslims” globally “really are trying to practice their
religion that helps them and their fellow human beings flourish,” he has
argued. At LPC he added that “I hate the language of ‘radical Islamic
terrorism’” and its “simplistic understanding that Islam programs people
to be violent.”

Islamic rule past and present thus raises few concerns for Green
while he condemns the United States for having supported dictators like
Iran’s shah. Like many academics, he whitewashes Islam’s often brutal, subjugated
“status of dhimmis or protected minorities” for non-Muslims, stating
that “for much of the history of Islam Christians and Jews were
protected and lived in peace with Muslims.” Today Americans in the
Middle East should “be very consistent when it comes to supporting
democratic movements, even if that means risking losing an alliance with
an autocratic government,” irrespective of such “democratic” results in
1979 Iran and 2011 Egypt.

More often than not, non-Muslims draw Green’s criticism. Writing in Sojourners, he approved of President Barack Obama’s regurgitation of the common canard
that the Crusades were unjustified aggression, not a just war defensive
response to jihadist conquests. “Obama did his best at the National Prayer Breakfast
in February [2015] to address the legacy of violence carried out in the
name of Christianity.” Green also has falsely relativized that the
“Bible has its fair share of violent texts” along with the Quran,
thereby ignoring fundamental differences between violent verses in these two scriptures.

Green’s Huffington Post writings betray a less than stirring defense of free speech against jihadist censorship. Geller and Spencer’s 2015 Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas, where security guards killed two Muslim assailants, merely exemplified “hate rallies that engage in Muslim-bashing under the pretense of defending freedom of speech.” Reviewing Iran’s 1989 blasphemy death sentence for British writer Salman Rushdie,
Green mused that “minorities rarely have possessed the same
opportunities to shape public opinion as those with political power or
cultural capital.” Therefore, “Rushdie and some of his more outspoken
supporters adopted a fairly uncritical approach to freedom of
expression, assuming at times that this freedom benefits all members of
Western societies equally.”

For Green, individual relationships between Muslims and non-Muslims
are the antidote to what he has called a “perfect storm of Islamophobia”
in a French television interview.
He laments supposedly skewed media representations emphasizing Islam’s
violence while “there simply are not enough strong relationships in the
West between Muslims who are in the minority and the non-Muslim
majority.” As one venue for interfaith outreach, he advocates the Muslim
Brotherhood (MB)-derived Muslim Students Association (MSA), which he addressed in 2010 at Minnesota’s St. Cloud State University.

One of Green’s book interviewees, Muslim congressman Keith Ellison, currently under fire for his anti-Israel statements and extremists Islamist affiliations,
presents for Green the kind of Muslim people should befriend. “If you
have a really jaded, negative view of politicians and think that they
are intellectually disengaged, you should have a conversation with Keith
Ellison, and you will change your mind,” Green has stated about the
Minnesota representative. Accordingly, Green’s wife and fellow leftist, Tabita, has written
about how he took Luther College students from their Iowa campus on a
field trip to Ellison’s Minneapolis mosque, where the radical imam Siraj Wahaj has been a featured speaker.
Tabita also noted that the field trip included a visit to the Minnesota
chapter of the Hamas-derived Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) “to learn about their civil rights work.”

Green’s tweets round out his Islamist sympathies. In one, he calls the radical, anti-Semitic Woman’s March on Washington organizer Linda Sarsour a “shining star in the battle against racism and bigotry” and therefore “#ImarchwithLinda.” In another,
his CAIR and MSA affiliations apparently make him worry that
“[d]esignating the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist org. will open the
door to witch hunts aimed @ Muslim civil liberties groups.”

Yet even Green recognizes that interfaith relations with Muslims are
not without their pitfalls. “You want to see a nonstarter happen,” he
has indicated in his various appearances, including at LPC, then
introduce the subject of “Palestine” between Jews and Muslims. Before
tackling such hot topics, he recommends that interfaith groups undertake
noncontroversial community projects like Habitat for Humanity homebuilding; “I tend to prefer more organic relationships to evolve,” he has stated. Apparently then, Jewish legal legend Alan Dershowitz should build a house with Ellison before deciding to leave the Democratic Party if he becomes the Democratic National Committee chairman.

Reality belies Green’s “getting to know you
thesis in which individual relationships with Muslims dispel
reservations towards Islam that actually come from the faith’s hard
facts, not imagined prejudice. Numerous Christians from Muslim-majority
countries have impressed upon this author Islam’s oppressive nature
towards non-Muslims, even though these individuals lack no opportunity
to meet Muslims as Green bemoans in the United States. Likewise Europe’s
significantly larger Muslim populations, recently increased by an
influx of “refugees,” have done little to improve Islam’s popularity.

The arguments of Green, who by self-admission is by training a
student of American and European religious history, not Islamic studies,
might impress his fellow leftists as indicated by his largely positive
reception at LPC. Paralleling the Obama Administration’s State
Department, LPC has made an appeal to “Actively Support the Boycott of Products Made in Israeli Settlements” and is pro-LGBT. Yet individuals like James Lafferty,
head of Christians Against Radical Islam (CARI), indicated during
audience questions why skepticism is warranted. He recalled a local
presentation 25 years ago by Anwar al-Awlaki, an imam once feted as a Muslim “moderate”
and later killed in Yemen as an Al Qaeda supporter by a 2011 American
drone strike. “He said many times exactly the same words I have heard
tonight,” Lafferty noted.

 What is refreshing about this Memorandum is that it doesn’t contain what
 it certainly would have contained in the previous administration: a 
clause or two about how the Islamic State (which is actually the name of
 the group, not the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is perverting the 
great, noble, peaceful religion of Islam. This statement doesn’t say 
anything about whether or not the Islamic State is Islamic, which is 
just as it should be: the President of the United States is not and need
 not be the nation’s Chief Theologian. The motivating of the ideology of
 the enemy needs to be identified, discussed, and countered; no 
declaration of whether or not it is actually Islamically correct is 
needed from the U.S. government.

“Presidential Memorandum Plan to Defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria,” White House, January 28, 2017:















SUBJECT: Plan to Defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, is not the only threat
from radical Islamic terrorism that the United States faces, but it is
among the most vicious and aggressive. It is also attempting to create
its own state, which ISIS claims as a “caliphate.” But there can be no
accommodation or negotiation with it. For those reasons I am directing
my Administration to develop a comprehensive plan to defeat ISIS.

ISIS is responsible for the violent murder of American citizens in
the Middle East, including the beheadings of James Foley, Steven
Sotloff, and Peter Abdul-Rahman Kassig, as well as the death of Kayla
Mueller. In addition, ISIS has inspired attacks in the United States,
including the December 2015 attack in San Bernardino, California, and
the June 2016 attack in Orlando, Florida. ISIS is complicit in a number
of terrorist attacks on our allies in which Americans have been wounded
or killed, such as the November 2015 attack in Paris, France, the March
2016 attack in Brussels, Belgium, the July 2016 attack in Nice, France,
and the December 2016 attack in Berlin, Germany.

ISIS has engaged in a systematic campaign of persecution and
extermination in those territories it enters or controls. If ISIS is
left in power, the threat that it poses will only grow. We know it has
attempted to develop chemical weapons capability. It continues to
radicalize our own citizens, and its attacks against our allies and
partners continue to mount. The United States must take decisive action
to defeat ISIS.

Sec. 1. Policy. It is the policy of the United States that ISIS be defeated.

Sec. 2. Policy Coordination. Policy coordination, guidance, dispute
resolution, and periodic in-progress reviews for the functions and
programs described and assigned in this memorandum shall be provided
through the interagency process established in National Security
Presidential Memorandum – 2 of January 28, 2017 (Organization of the
National Security Council and the Homeland Security Council), or any

(i) Development of a new plan to defeat ISIS (the Plan) shall commence immediately.

(ii) Within 30 days, a preliminary draft of the Plan to defeat ISIS
shall be submitted to the President by the Secretary of Defense.

(iii) The Plan shall include:

(A) a comprehensive strategy and plans for the defeat of ISIS;

(B) recommended changes to any United States rules of engagement and
other United States policy restrictions that exceed the requirements of
international law regarding the use of force against ISIS;

(C) public diplomacy, information operations, and cyber strategies to
isolate and delegitimize ISIS and its radical Islamist ideology;

(D) identification of new coalition partners in the fight against
ISIS and policies to empower coalition partners to fight ISIS and its

(E) mechanisms to cut off or seize ISIS’s financial support,
including financial transfers, money laundering, oil revenue, human
trafficking, sales of looted art and historical artifacts, and other
revenue sources; and

(F) a detailed strategy to robustly fund the Plan.

(b) Participants. The Secretary of Defense shall develop the Plan in
collaboration with the Secretary of State, the Secretary of the
Treasury, the Secretary of Homeland Security, the Director of National
Intelligence, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Assistant
to the President for National Security Affairs, and the Assistant to the
President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism.

(c) Development of the Plan. Consistent with applicable law, the
Participants identified in subsection (b) of this section shall compile
all information in the possession of the Federal Government relevant to
the defeat of ISIS and its affiliates. All executive departments and
agencies shall, to the extent permitted by law, promptly comply with any
request of the Participants to provide information in their possession
or control pertaining to ISIS. The Participants may seek further
information relevant to the Plan from any appropriate source.

(d) The Secretary of Defense is hereby authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register

This is THE year.   2017.  So many have been awaiting its
arrival with anticipation, with hope, with a desire to see history
repeat itself.  And NO. It isn’t about some eternally unimportant temporal American election.

It’s about the explosion of truth … God’s Truth … across the
planet. It’s about when Truth was unshackled from a millennium of
virtual bondage in a blasphemous prison built by the apostate hands of
man.   It’s about not a mere celebration of a historical event – the
Reformation – it’s about praising God for giving bold, historic evidence
of his claim in Psalm 138:2:

You have exalted above all things
your name and your word. Psalm 138:2

The Reformation serves as providential, temporal, historic evidence
that His Name and His Word will always remain unfettered by the prideful
whims of man and unshadowed by the efforts of a God-hating enemy.
Utterances from the truthful lips of God (Proverbs 12:19) remain forever.

The Reformation was a providential movement of God, protecting His
Truth and thereby extending grace to the undeserving world. Its’ fruit
has, as of this year, continued to bless the world for five hundred

But, though we know the many warnings of end-time diversions off the
narrow path and how the church will increasingly be plagued with false
teachers and false gospels, the true church – not the superficial one – prays for another reformation.

We want another reformation that brings to the modern church what the
Reformation brought to the 16th-century one – the restoration of God’s
Name and God’s Word to their rightful, exalted place. We want that
preached in our pulpits and taught in our Sunday school rooms. We want
THAT Truth to be the visible image of the church to an onlooking world.
And we want that Truth to be proclaimed, defended and contended, so that
the elect hearts of men may be saved by it. We want that Truth blasted
across an increasingly depraved world because THAT Truth gives glory to
Jesus, the Lord and the Savior.

But the modern superficial church – the one most unbelievers think of
when they think about “church” – is light years away from the authentic
light of God’s Word, though that Word is so often merely a
fingertip away. False teaching is rampant because the Word goes
unheeded. Error is hurled, tolerated, and endorsed with ever greater
ferocity because sound doctrine is ignored. Deception continues WITHIN the church as “the god of this world” (2 Corinthians 4:4, 1 John 5:19) appealingly deludes with unsound doctrine (2 Timothy 4:3) imprisoning men’s minds in strongholds of darkness. (2 Corinthians 10:4)

On his daily Grace To You Radio
broadcast today, John MacArthur prefaced his message with a quick look
at two particular lessons from the Reformation. These studio comments
come ahead of the rebroadcast of his message, Is Jesus The Only Way?

Here’s what Dr. MacArthur had to say:

“I think there are a couple of things that come out of the Reformation that are just really profound, far-reaching lessons.”

“The first one is that error, heresy, false Christianity can
survive for a very long time. It can not only survive, it can actually
be a dominant force in society. That is exactly what happened for a
thousand years in the development of Roman Catholicism.”

“If you think that there’s not a powerful, massive, embedded
force for heresy, for a corrupted Gospel and a corrupted church, alive
and well in the world, you don’t know history.”

“Error is always seeking to be permanently embedded and given a
kind of dignity, a kind of acceptability, a kind of prominence in the
world. And that’s what happened for a thousand years in the development
of the Roman Catholic Church.”

“The other thing that comes out of the Reformation is this … that
as profoundly embedded as evil is for such a long time and through tens
of thousands of people, God can use one person as He did Martin Luther –
or two or three – to literally bring the Truth.”

“That’s something we ought to pray for even today.”

There’s really only one thing that can be said to this … AMEN.

Destined To Win: How To Embrace Your God-Given Identity And Realize Your Kingdom Purpose

Author: Kris Vallotton
Foreword: Lisa Bevere
Paperback: 224 pages
Publisher: Thomas Nelson (January 3, 2017)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0718080645 / ISBN-13: 978-0718080648

The endorsements alone are enough to warrant a “Warning: Heretical
& Hermeneutical Danger Ahead” notice on its cover.  With glowing
endorsements from the likes of “apostle” Mike Bickle, Jesus Culture
founder Banning Liebscher, Ted Dekker, Che Ahn, Heidi Baker, and Shawn
Bolz, there is little doubt that Destined To Win is borne of a “wide path” false theology.  Add the obligatory laudation from Vallotton’s cohort in charlatanry, Bill Johnson – whom Vallotton compares to Moses
– and the assurance that the book will distort and defile the truth of
God is more manifest than fake Holy Ghost gold dust blowing through
Bethel Church’s air ducts.

Kris Vallotton, the author of this “everything God does is about you”
tome, is the “senior associate leader of Bethel Church and co-founder
of Bethel School of Ministry, where he has served with Bill Johnson for
more than three decades.”  This just goes to prove that one can spend
decades in the “Jesus biz,” presumably surrounded by Bibles, (serving primarily as visual aids to prop up the “Christianized” illusion of Bethel’s otherwise heretical endeavors) and still not apprehend Biblical truth.  As Jesus told Nicodemus, “You must be born again.”  (John 3:7)

Source: Bethel School Of Supernatural Ministry (BSSM) Website:

Oh, and it is noteworthy that the book’s bio makes references to the
“Bethel School of Ministry” when actually it’s the “Bethel School of Supernatural
Ministry.”  It’s where, if you’re devoid of authentic Christian
doctrinal understanding, you go to be anointed and receive an
“impartation” in order to heal the sick, cast out demons, and raise the
dead.  I’m not sure if “grave-sucking” – for which Bethel is notorious –
is part of the core curricula or if it’s an a la carte elective.
the book curiously downplays the “supernatural” element and adjective
to Vallotton and Bethel’s frolics in falsehood.

Another – perhaps surprising – endorsement comes from Eric Metaxas,
the Greek Orthodox, Yale-graduated author of some recent, more
mainstream books of a Christian slant. (His bio on Bonhoeffer won a Christian Book of the Year award)
He may have been tapped with an invite to endorse in order to give
Vallotton and Bethel a more cultured, dignified, mainstream appeal.

“Vallotton’s faith is contagious.  That’s the point.  Read this book and catch it.”  Eric Metaxas

Frankly, if you’re a believer, you’d be safer waltzing into a CDC
ebola biohazard lab in your birthday suit than to risk catching any of
Bethel’s toxic spiritual microbes.  What was it our Lord said?  “And do
not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear
him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”  (Matthew 10:28)
 Spiritually cavorting with the toxins of Vallotton may not kill your
body, and though the subtle incubation period of Bethel’s lethal virus
may seem temporally-appealing, the full-blown contagion is eternally


Consider Mark Batterson’s endorsement.  You know Batterson from circle-praying false-teaching fame.  He said, “Destined To Win
gives readers a proactive plan to deal with the true, deep needs of
their souls.”  Well clearly, the capacity for discernment from a guy who
actually believes that Christianizing spirit-summoning prayer
techniques from the world of witchcraft are legitimate ought not require
much Berean examination to be summarily dismissed.  Following
Batterson’s method, you end up with an unbiblical technique that leaves
the “circle” of truth broken, shattered, and its practitioners
spiritually comatose.  Little wonder he’s endorsed a book that offers
much the same fare.

Vollotton’s book opens with a Foreword penned by pastrix and fellow Bethel charlatan Lisa Bevere.  Well … it was possibly penned by her.  She promotes some sort of Holy Spirit automatic writing so it’s possible that she’s claimed somewhere that she
actually didn’t write it.  
But, given the glowing words it contains,
it’s a certainty that the Holy Spirit didn’t automatically – or
accidentally – write it.  God does not use charlatans to endorse
charlatans, nor does He do it Himself. Had the Holy Spirit actually
aided Bevere, His Words would doubtlessly have had a much more
first-century, Biblical ring to them … something more like … “For the
time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having
itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their
own passions.”  (2 Timothy 4:3)

(Just a rabbit trail here before proceeding. While this may be
common sense to many folks, I’ve encountered many who don’t do it. Pay
close attention to who is endorsing a book. I generally will read every
endorsement before I’ll even read the dust-jacket or back-cover synopsis
of the book. If a single known false teacher – or, as in this case,
enough of them to make a baseball team – endorses a book, then it most
surely ought to be avoided. Charlatans are not asked to endorse the
works of Biblically responsible authors,and vice-versa. You’ll not find a
toothy-grinned Osteen giving a gleaming review on a work of John
MacArthur. And you won’t find R. C. Sproul endorsing Jesus Calling.  It’s a useful practice to employ in order to avoid unhelpful books by unfamiliar authors.)


The modern superficial Christian church echoes so much of the post-modernism of culture around it (or, more correctly and more often, that culture isn’t just echoed, it’s invited in to “take a pew and enjoy the show.”)
  It disregards absolute truth. It doesn’t do the diligent work to
comprehend, teach, and preach what accords with sound doctrine, instead
opting to promote the popular, the appealing, and all things that tend
to fill pews, sell books, and keep coffers brimming.  It’s far more
important for the church to have hipster appeal in a Youtube video than
it is for it to offer the faith-maturing truth of God’s Word for the
souls of authentic sheep.  Such is the case with anything coming out of
Bethel Church.

Though the superficial church has largely jettisoned adherence to any
absolutes of Biblical doctrine, Vallotton’s book hawks the one
persistent, but false, absolute that remains ecclesiastically
pervasive.   What is that one absolute? That nothing in all of creation
is more important than you. That God wakes up every morning fixated on
how to make your dreams, hopes, and desires come to fruition. That He
wants to you be actualized, to be anointed, to be imparted some
supernatural empowerment to achieve your dreams.

“God is all about you!   I don’t mean you are all He has; I just mean you are His favorite.” Kris Vallotton

Scripture, though, teaches a rather different exalted One.

“This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to him.” God the Father, Matthew 17:5
“For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.” Paul, writing of the “beloved Son,” Romans 11:36

But Destined To Win is less high-pressure with its emphasis on the supernatural than Vollotton’s previous tomes. (He’s currently got 20 titles listed on the Bethel Church store website.) This latest volume doesn’t carry the same charismatic tone as, say, Developing A Supernatural Life: A Practical Guide To A Life of Signs, Wonders, and Miracles.
Published in 2007, the marketing hype for that book proposed to find
Vallotton reaching “into God’s arsenal” to equip the reader with
supernatural weapons that will “catapult you into your divine destiny.”

His 2016 volume, Heavy Rain,
finds Vallotton offering “guidance and inspiration … to become a vessel
that catches the downpour of the Spirit’s rain – and helps release
God’s Kingdom like a flood.” The 2014 text by Vallotton, Basic Training For the Prophetic Ministry,
is hawked as a resource to help “all believers to operate in prophetic
ministry.” In it, one will presumably “learn the languages of God and
hear His voice like never before,” how to “discover and develop your
prophetic gifts,” as he helps one to “step out and confidently share
words of knowledge, wisdom, and prophecy.”

Though he has certainly not recanted the charismatic false teachings from his earlier books, Vollotton has toned them down in Destined To Win.
You’ll still find such notions as anointing, impartation, and Holy
Spirit “gifts” mentioned throughout the text.  Yet their mentions are
subtle but no less dangerously toxic to authentic faith.  The book
maintains more muted undercurrents of NAR dominionist theology (God’s kingdom being made manifest on earth by your God-empowered success)
as well as a smattering of the “little gods” teaching from the
prosperity gospel.  Shades of covetousness for the supernaturally
miraculous are persistent in the book, unlike the importance of sound
doctrine which is absent.

“I dream of a day when the people of God are so
filled with the Spirit of God that by the Word of God we calm storms,
stop earthquakes and reconcile warring nations. I envision a time not
too far into the future when tens of millions of believers unleash
heaven wherever they go and thereby shift the atmospheres of nations.”
Kris Vallotton

Destined To Win is
much like a plagiarized and expanded outline of power point slides from a
rah-rah, pump-you-up, you-can-do-it self-help pep rally from some
soap-selling pyramid scheme seminar. It’s alleged to be a “how-to” book
on getting “actualized” (a New Age notion, perhaps, but not a Biblical one), to operate as a leader in your divine capacity in God’s kingdom.

Vallotton gives an inane evidence for why God wants you – and everyone else – to understand that “You are destined to win!”

“We don’t have eyes in the backs of our heads,” he says, “because we
weren’t designed to back up, retreat, or lose ground.” “Our arms were
created to only work in front of us,” he writes and, “our feet point
forward and are incapable of swiveling rearward.” What’s all this
anatomical reality mean? “It’s all a sign of our Creator’s desire for us
to gain ground and to live successful, productive lives. God is our
rear guard and we are to face forward.”

God is our rear guard?   Jesus never taught that. In fact, far from even implying that “God’s got your back,” he said the exact opposite, “Follow me.” (Matthew 8:22, Matthew 9:9, Matthew 19:21, Mark 1:17, Mark 10:21, Luke 5:27, John 1:43, John 21:22)
 Not only that, but Jesus clarified “follow me” even further: “If
anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross
daily and follow me.  For whoever would save his life will lose it, but
whoever loses his life for my sake will save it.” (Luke 9:23-24)
Now that’s worrisome. How am I supposed to have my “best life now” a la
Vallotton if, according to Jesus, I might be dead? Somebody’s wrong …
 and it is not the Son of God.

“I long to see people fully actualized in a way that
causes them to embrace their God-given identities and fulfill their
divine purpose.”  Kris Vallotton

In order to achieve your destiny, posits Vallotton, you must realize
that you can only accomplish the task – be actualized in it – by

Kris Vallotton

knowing who your peeps are. You’re the leader and your identity, your
divine destiny, is tied to your followers.   “It’s impossible to escape
the fact that our destinies lie in our people,” writes Vallotton.
 Elsewhere he says that “you can’t find your purpose until you have
found your people, because your ultimate purpose is in your people!”  By
comparison, the Apostle Paul said, “For to me, to live is Christ.”  (Philippians 1:21)


To substantiate this claim with Scripture – which itself is not
heralded as the place for a believer to go to find their purpose –
Vallotton, citing Acts 9:27,
says, “Think about it: would Paul have become an apostle if Barnabas
hadn’t ‘taken hold of him’ when he was still young in the faith?”

This fails the basic rule of hermeneutics: context rules. Barnabas was “taking hold” of Paul AFTER
the Lord’s dramatic interruption of his Damascus road trek. By the time
Barnabas took hold of him, Paul (then Saul) had already been chosen by
the risen Lord. Barnabas was merely taking him to the Jerusalem
disciples who were wary of the well-known former persecutor of the Way.
Barnabas testified on Paul’s behalf, but Barnabas’ actions didn’t “make”
Paul an apostle.  The Lord had already chosen him.  But this contextual
fact was in the way of Vallotton’s narrative.

No doubt it’s this sort of disregard for “rightly handling the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15)–
consistent throughout the book – that prompts Vallotton to suggest that
the work of the Holy Spirit might more appropriately be credited to

“It’s possible that Barnabas inspired Paul to write as many as thirteen books of the Bible.”   Kris Vallotton

Possible encouragement aside, Paul did not write because of Barnabas; he wrote because the Holy Spirit prompted him to.

But Barnabas didn’t pose the only hermeneutical challenge for
Vallotton. So did the “heart.” In the book’s second chapter, the author
proceeds to lay out the solution to all the ills of the world, and a
truth necessary for us to succeed. He says, “I am convinced that wars
would cease, crime would plummet, divorce would diminish, and immorality
would fall if the human race just experienced these three words: you
are loved!”

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

Vallotton’s not merely hyping Arminianistic salvation here. He’s
towing with a twist the “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your
life” false gospel.   He’s promoting a sort of universalism in which
the depravity of man suddenly vanishes not because of
 Gospel-born regeneration, but if and when the “truth” of God’s love
“stored in their heads” makes the “eighteen-inch journey to their
hearts.” Citing Proverbs 3:5, Vallotton states that “I am convinced that your heart can take you places your head can never go.”

“‘Mind’ and ‘spirit’ in man
communicate with one another.  It is a false dichotomy contrary to the
scriptural teaching about man that suggests that  man’s ‘spirit’
(pneuma) is an irrational, purely emotional aspect of man, while his
‘mind’ (nous) refers to his reasoning abilities.” O. Palmer Robertson, The Final Word

This false – but culturally and ecclesiastically prevalent –
dichotomy of heart and mind may be dismissed to read further what is
being posited.   Referring to the verse from Proverbs, Vallotton asks,
“Did you just notice the wisest man in the world clearly said that we
must trust God with our hearts, not our heads? In fact, he went on to
say that we shouldn’t put a lot of weight on what we understand.”  We
can be certain that Vallotton’s gleaning from Proverbs is completely
erroneous because the Holy Spirit who inspired Scripture never inspired
anything in it that is self-refuting, as the Apostle Paul does with
Vallotton’s interpretation.  Writing to the Colossians, Paul emphasized
learning and knowing and understanding as paramount to faith, not
thoughtless, heart-driven emotionalism.

so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking
that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual
wisdom and understanding,
as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him:
bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God”
 Colossians 1:9-10

But Vollotton is somewhat of a Proverb-ial bi-polar. Some 70
pages later he cites another Proverb that refutes the very “follow your
heart” point he made earlier: “He who trusts in his own heart is a
fool, But he who walks wisely will be delivered.” (Proverbs 28:26)

In providing a “guide” to help readers achieve their God-given
destinies, which can only be found once they’ve found their “people,”
Vallotton takes a different tack on an age old technique of Biblical
interpretation.  Instead of hermeneutics, you might consider what he
does more akin to heresy-neutics.  Vallotton doesn’t encourage
readers to play Bible roulette, randomly opening Scripture, pointing to a
verse, and interpreting it as a valid, imminent revelation for their
lives.  He’s not suggesting random verse-plucking for personal gain.
 Instead, he recommends parable-plucking.

“Discovering which descriptions of the Kingdom you most resonate with
and then finding others who resonate with the same aspects of the
Kingdom will help you find your people,” he writes.  “I suggest you
reread all the parables of Jesus in light of this revelation and pay
attention to the ones you relate to the most.”

Kris Vallotton and The Pope

Well, charlatans for centuries have been doing this very thing with Scripture.  (Rome, for example, has constructed a massive religious empire through this practice.)
It’s been treated as a self-help smorgasbord of pithy witticisms ever
since the canon was closed.  Convenient, personally embraceable nuggets
of Scriptural wisdom are often subjectively selected and placed on the
cafeteria tray of our preferential beliefs, while the more difficult,
unpalatable lessons from the Word are left untouched (and often
unserved by the attendant pastors of the church who prefer to offer only
a menu of nutrition-void, Scriptural feel-good food to their “flocks.”)
Vallotton does the same here.  Find what you like, embrace that, find like-minded folks, and skip the rest.

Vallotton serves up various parables as examples of how someone might
search for clues to their divine purpose through resonating
characteristics from within the parables.  He cites  Matthew 13:33,
the parable of the leaven, as examples of people “hidden in society”
who are “doing ordinary things in extraordinary ways.”  Their “good
works” are “secretly causing society to rise.”  If you resonate with
this, you must find others who also want to be “stealthy in society” as
cultural influencers.

Perhaps you’re more attracted to Matthew 13:45-46,
the story of the merchant who found a pearl of great value and who sold
all he had to acquire it.  That could mean you are a risk-taker.
 “Maybe the risk-taker in you connects with a Kingdom that has embarked
on an exhilarating and dangerous journey…”

Or maybe you’re more the “fishers of men” type, exhibited in Matthew 13:47.
 “Does your soul long to capture the hearts of people and inspire them
to join the kingdom of heaven? … Then there is a strong possibility that
these desires should guide your destiny.” Yet “maybe you relate more to
the business side of God,” suggests Vallotton, who cites Matthew 20:1.
 “As the Lord unfolds the parable of the landowner, the challenges of
his business, and the descriptions of his employees, you find yourself
basking in His insights and wondering at his wisdom.  If this is true
about you, then these aspirations are signs that you may have found your

“Take care then how you hear”  Jesus, Luke 8:18

This technique for identifying your personal “resonances” with
Scripture, to thus be enabled to seek your like-minded peeps in order to
find your destiny, graphically violates the apostle’s admonition to
Timothy to “rightly handle” Scripture.  It fails to heed the Lord’s
warning to “take care then how you hear.”

The parables of Jesus are fundamentally intended to convey profound
spiritual truth.  As John MacArthur writes, “Parables are not to be
mined for layer upon layer of secret significance.  Their lessons are
simple, focused, and without much embellishment.”  “If it seems,” writes
MacArthur in his book Parables,
“the stories Jesus told are capable of endless interpretations and
therefore devoid of any discernible objective meaning, that’s because
truly understanding them requires faith, diligence, careful exegesis,
and a genuine desire to hear what Christ is saying.”  MacArthur adds,
“…all unbelievers lack that capacity.”

Vollotton goes to lengths to emphasize finding your destiny by
finding your people.  He describes in some detail the organization of
Bethel and how creating the proper “environment” for the pursuit of your
divine destiny is critical.  “An environment helps to actualize a
specific people group with a specific vision,” he writes.  “One of the
difficulties in becoming fully actualized occurs when you find yourself
in a community that doesn’t have the capacity or vision to collaborate
your calling.”

The latter third or so of the book offers superficial and euphemistic
encouragements for accelerating your actualization into your peep-found
destiny.  “Too many of us are spiritual mummies,” he suggests,
comparing to Lazarus who emerged from the tomb “alive but bound.”  To
get unbound, you have to confront pain and proceed to freedom.  Later he
offers “five foundational questions” that “are meant to help you
process and proactively evaluate the structures [your environment and
its accouterments] with which you are currently living, so you can
determine whether they are empowering or constraining you.”

His five closing questions, “Who is leading?” – “Who are the people
you are leading?” – “In what season are you leading?” – “What are you
called to accomplish in this season?” – “What core values are guiding
you in life in leadership?” – each are bullet-points supported by yet
other related questions.  These subjective queries are simply fodder for
Christianized psycho-babble self-analysis. They are not in response to
the important apostolic exhortation to “Examine yourself,” (2 Corinthians 13:5) but are posed to put you in the position to be the winner God expects and wants you to be.

The words “vision,” “hard-work,” “courage,” and adjectives consistent
with self-help pop psychology are strewn liberally throughout the book,
spiritualized, of course.  Vallotton couches them with Scripture to
provide an appearance of Christianity and slathers the book with Bible
verses so that a veneer of divine authority seems superficially evident.
 The “supernatural” elements of his – and Bethel’s – well-known, errant
theology are present in the book, but only subtly.  For example, he
cites direct revelations he or his wife have received from God.  (For
example, God told Vallotton’s wife they should move and take a job
offer with Bethel.  God told Vallotton that he should make a lifelong
covenant with Bill Johnson.)

For the minimal importance that genuine salvation matters in the
book, the closing chapter – “Unleashing Heaven” – includes a passing
remark reflective of the less-than-sovereign God well known to the
prosperity-gospel and much of the modern church, “What I mean is that
when you asked Jesus into your heart, you joined the Bless Me Club,
because wherever Jesus lives, He prospers.”  But this magic genie “God”
does not exist and does not save.  And authentic salvation isn’t winning
the golden ticket to Bless-Me-Land; rather, it’s “deny yourself, take
up your cross and follow me.”  (Matthew 16:24)

The closing section of the book offers a self-scoring “Nobility
Assessment Test,” to “help you get a better picture of where you are in
your lifelong journey to nobility,” writes Vallotton, adding that, “You
are called to be a noble person, a winner, and a champion.”
While it is
true that we are adopted into God’s family, the full realization of that
relationship will not be known on this side of eternity.  While we’re
here, it is not the pursuit of supernatural nobility or supernatural
gifts or supernatural self-actualization that is to drive us, but rather
obedience to Christ in His Word.  (John 14:21)

The Apostle Peter reminds his readers, and us, what our life’s aim ought truly look like, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”  (1 Peter 1:16)

Destined To Win is
merely poorly Christianized pop-psychology motivational fodder.  It is
absolutely not worthwhile reading for a believer.  The only thing going
for it is that for heresy-neutics, it’s a worthy example.

Lance Wallnau: Picture of The NAR’s Seven Mountains False Theology

In early 2016, false teacher and hurler of New Apostolic Reformation
seven-mountains dominionism, Lance Wallnau got an “impression,” an
“impression” from the Holy Spirit.  It was about Donald Trump,
specifically about Donald Trump becoming the 45th President of The
United States.  It was about Donald Trump being raised up by God just as
He raised up Cyrus for His purposes.

By October 2016, Wallnau’s “impression” became a full-blown
“prophecy.”  Of course, keep in mind that when a prophecy has a
coin-flip toss of being right, it’s “fore-telling” impact is more than
slightly diminished, even if revelatory prophecy were still occuring
today. (It is not.  FYI.)

According to Charisma Newswhich, believe it or don’t, isn’t a parody site; people actually believe it – Wallnau was reinforced in his Trump prophecy by way of a couple of curious “divine” insights.  Here’s what the Charisma News writer said:

“Wallnau told me he had an impression when he first met
Donald Trump early this year that there was an anointing on him. He
didn’t understand the impression since he preferred Ted Cruz, Marco
Rubio and Carly Fiorina. Then he saw a meme on Facebook showing Trump as
the nation’s 45th president. About the same time, he felt the Lord tell
him to read Isaiah 45, which says King Cyrus who is called the Lord’s
“anointed” and later in the chapter says, “I have even called you by
your name … though you have not known Me.”  (Source)

But wait.  Like a bad Sham-wow infomercial, there’s more!

“Wallnau then told me he felt he heard the Lord tell him
“common grace,” and he found the term in a Charles Colson book. It was a
term the Reformers used to contrast “saving grace,” when there was a
basic understanding of God that influenced governments and societies
even though the people who had this common grace might not have
experienced “saving grace.”  (Source)

(Guess what?  There’s a term I found in a book too.  “False teacher.”
 Found it in the Bible.  Far more weighty than a Colson text. FYI.)

But, for Wallnau, it adds up, huh?  Wallnau didn’t support Trump
early on.  Then he saw a meme.  Then he “felt the Lord tell him to read
Isaiah 45.”   Then the Lord said the words “common grace” to him.  And, wah-la Wallnau!  A prophecy.

The tipping point of authentication?  Not the voice of God.  (If
Wallnau heard anything, it wasn’t God.)  The adjudicating validation for
his prophetic claim was … SCRIPTURE.  But, not Scripture rightly
handled.  (2 Timothy 2:15)  It was Scripture thoroughly “mis-handled” that was the prophetic key.

Wallnau explains:

“With 15 candidates running, many who were clear
conservative evangelicals, why would God be talking about Cyrus? I
quickly looked up the number of the next president. I confirmed that
Barack Obama is number 44. The next president will indeed be number 45. I
kept reading Isaiah 45.”  (Source)

If only we could insert mood lighting and drama-building sound
effects when we write, you might apprehend how absolutely incredible
this revelation is.  It’s big.  It’s huge.  Wallnau predicted, with the
accuracy of a coin toss, the outcome of the election … based on

Trump is the 45th President.  The “Cyrus” effect is found in … Isaiah 45.  Who said America isn’t the new Israel?  (I jest, of course.)

There’s just one problem with this.  Though we have them now, the
original Holy Spirit-inspired, Hebrew Scriptures didn’t have chapter
divisions. There was no Isaiah 45.  It seems like the Lord might’ve used some method other than Bible-chapter bingo to confirm his prophecy to Wallnau.

What if Wallnau accidentally misunderstood?  What if it wasn’t Isaiah 45 he was to read, but Jeremiah 45?
 I mean, it’s just one book after Isaiah.  If it was actually Jeremiah
that Wallnau should’ve read, America could be in for quite a shock.
 Instead of “Wah-la Wallnau,” it could easily be “Woe, Wallnau.

“Thus says the Lord: Behold, what I have built I am breaking down, and what I have planted I am plucking up—that is, the whole land.  And do you seek great things for yourself? Seek them not, for behold, I am bringing disaster upon all flesh, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 45:4-5

Now, I’m not making any prophecies or anything, but Jeremiah 45 sure seems close to what Americans are seeking via Trump … “do you seek great things for yourself?”  What, again, was Trump’s campaign motto?  Make America Great Again.  Hmm.

Scripture itself is evidence that God is not seeking to hide Himself
or His Truth from the world.  We need not (and SHOULD NOT) play games
with it to rationalize our desires or to justify presumed (and false)
prophetic claims.  We need to “abide” in the Word, (John 8:31)
to apprehend its full truth, to be compelled to full obedience to it,
and to learn from it the assurance we can have because we have an
utterly sovereign God.

Beware the false prophets of the NAR who abuse God’s Word.  Skip the
spurious Cyrus prophecies.  But, if you’re looking for a genuine
revelation, pick up that Word and start reading.  It’s the entire
revelation of God that reveals “everything we need for life and
godliness” (2 Peter 1:3).

And God … He doesn’t play bingo with His Word.  Don’t tolerate, then, those who do.


From The Daily Caller:

Hylton, along with three men and three other women,
kidnapped 62-year-old real-estate broker Thomas Vigliarolo and held him
for ransom, before eventually killing him. As noted in a 1995 Psychology Today article, when asked about forcibly sodomizing the victim with a three foot steel pole, Hylton replied: “He was a homo anyway.”

Speaking about Hylton, New York City Detective William Spurling told
Psychology Today: “I couldn’t believe this girl who was so intelligent
and nice-looking could be so unemotional about what she was telling me
she and her friends had done. They’d squeezed the victim’s testicles
with a pair of pliers, beat him, burned him.”

The Daily Caller goes on to report that Hylton even delivered the
ransom note to a friend of the victim demanding $400,000 even though
they had already killed him at that point.

According to the article she was sentenced to 25 years in prison
although in the video below she claims she spent 27 years in prison. The
amazing thing about this monster is she claims to be a victim which is
one of the hall marks signs of a psychopath.
