Pope Francis’s first liturgical scandal occurred in October 2019 during the so-called Synod on the Amazon when statues of an idol representing the Mother Earth goddess, or Pachamama, were venerated in St. Peter’s Basilica.

During the ceremonies there was a dancing procession of Pachamama where people prostrated themselves before the two wooden statues that represented naked and pregnant women and a statue of a male phallic figure reclining on his back. The event was meant to symbolize “the cry of the Amazonian land and native peoples.”

Francis later apologized for the incident, but the damage was done.

These disquieting events are rooted in some provocative church history. In 2018, the publication Catholic commented on the Catholic Charismatic movement,

“Some traditional Catholics might be turned off by the highly emotional exuberance of a Charismatic meeting, which can demonstrate such gifts of the Holy Spirit as prophecy, faith healing and speaking in tongues. Advocates believe this is simply the workings of the Holy Spirit.”

The Holy Spirit has been “blamed” for a number of innovations in the Catholic Church — from the creation of Eucharistic Ministers, Communion-in-hand, liturgical dancers, Argentine puppet Masses, altar girls, to the movement for women priests and deacons.

Advertisements for the 2019 Philadelphia Catholic Charismatic Renewal Conference had the look of an old-time southern revival. The ad was printed in big bold letters in the style of Big Tent evangelism.

Passages from Scripture were arranged around information surrounding the event:

A beautiful woman showing off her million-dollar tan and bright shiny dental veneers was listed as the guest speaker. She wasn’t just ‘anybody’ but someone who was “baptized in the Holy Spirit in 1957” (as if her first Baptism wasn’t enough). The woman, so the ad stated, “is committed to making Jesus known to the Nations by the preaching of the Gospel in the Power of the Holy Spirit.”

As Karl Keating, in a 2017 article on the Catholic charismatic movement, wrote in ‘Catholic Answers’:

“The Catholic variant of charismaticism dates from 1967. It began at Duquesne University, spread to Notre Dame, and then went viral, as the current saying has it. A Belgian cardinal, Leo Suenens, was an early patron. Pope Paul VI, while a charismatic event was in progress in Rome, said some positive things about the movement’s emphasis on “communion of souls” and its promotion of prayer. Later, John Paul II encouraged Catholic charismatics to defend the Christian notion of social life against inroads by secularism.”

“The popes,” Keating continues, “never endorsed the notion of a “Baptism in the Spirit,” nor did they speak in favor of glossolalia, or speaking in tongues.”

As many traditional Christians know, speaking in tongues was a singular event at Pentecost. It had everything to do with the early apostles and disciples with a knowledge of foreign languages so they could go out into the world, and had nothing to do with rolling around on the floor in a fever pitch. In fact, the contemporary concept of “speaking in tongues” (shaking your body with upraised hands) was virtually unknown throughout most of Christianity until 1830. That’s when a certain excitable Scottish Presbyterian minister, Edward Irving, manufactured its appearance “through his enthusiastic preaching.”

Keating concludes: “After that, speaking in tongues died down until the turn of the twentieth century with the rise of the modern Pentecostal movement. There were no Catholic examples of it until two-thirds of a century later.”

Yet this didn’t stop a redemptorist brother, Brother Pancratius Boudreau (Joseph Andrew Boudreau), from starting the Catholic Charismatic Movement in the late 1960s.

After Vatican II, many Catholics in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia were hooting and hollering like Big Ten evangelicals. The era of ‘quietly saying the rosary’ was seen as retrograde and Protestant-unfriendly. Although creeping Pentecostalism existed in mostly isolated parishes with special Masses, elements of the Charismatic movement began to seep into heretofore dignified parishes.

That’s when one spotted people at Mass praying the Lord’ Prayer in Orans fashion, while others took to holding hands with fellow parishioners. Some lay people — convinced that they had special spiritual gifts — would lay their hands on the heads of fellow parishioners.

Call it a full-fledged revival along the lines of Jim and Tammy Bakker.

On the heels of the charismatic movement came the Cursillo movement, founded in Spain in 1944 as a way to bring Spanish men back to the Church.

The Cursillo retreat was really the Catholic version of EST (Erhard Seminars Training, a quasi-religious therapy program founded in 1971 by Werner Erhard). The Cursillo 3-day retreat emphasized non-stop group activity with little or no solitude. Criticisms of the Cursillo movement by traditionalists pointed to “in group secrets” and instructions. Some former Cursillo devotees have even compared it to a cult, the Catholic version of Freemasonry.

The two founders of Cursillo, Eduardo Bonnin and Bishop Juan Hervas, saw their movement transported to the United States in 1957, although Cursillo hit its stride in the states in the 1970s in conjunction with the Catholic Charismatic Renewal movement. The two movements might be said to have produced a “new” type of Catholicism: the “Jesus Saves” hand clapping “let’s get emotional” school, and the so called Masonic “secret society” of Cursillo, which started out as a movement exclusively for men but which, falling victim to secular culture and the demands of feminists, went on.

Moving forward, the question of female deacons will be discussed at the upcoming Synod of Bishops in Rome in October 2024. (Cardinal George Pell has called the Synod on Synodalty a “toxic nightmare couched in a neo-Marxist message.” )

While many observers believe that the idea of a female deaconate in the Church will be approved, it is doubtful whether the new office, once established, will follow the tradition of so-called women deacons in the early Eastern Church, who had no liturgical function whatsoever but were primarily assigned on an ad hoc basis to care for women catechuems about to be baptized.

Yet as the Catholic Church becomes increasingly woke and reflective of the modern age, Catholic feminists and their male counterparts won’t be happy with a Baptism-oriented only female Deaconate, but will insist that female deacons, in a break with tradition, get to do everything that their male counterparts do: assist priests and bishops at Mass, baptize, proclaim the Gospel and assist at the altar.

The Roman Church’s obsessive desire to update its liturgy, doctrines, and beliefs while promoting climate, gender and transgender ideology — as if the latter were necessary for salvation — goes against the teachings of Saint Paul, who said that the Church must be a countercultural force.

The Church has to be a force against the modernism of this world, and it should not, as many have said, marry the spirit of the age. If there’s no difference between the world and the Church, this would be a mark that the Church has lost its spiritual dimension.

Of course, the radical handwriting was on the wall when Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the Cardinal-Archbishop of Buenos Aires, was elected to the papacy in 2013.

At his first address to the crowds in St. Peter’s Square as Francis I, he had refused to wear the papal mozzetta. This seemingly small break with tradition was the first red flag signaling that the new pope was a liturgical modernist.

Years later, in January 2021, Pope Francis called for open borders when he wrote that nations had an obligation “to welcome, promote, protect, and integrate those who come in search of better lives for themselves and their families.”

What is this, if not a call for a full-scale Pachamama migrant invasion?

Bethel and Bill Johnson’s Bridge to the New Age and Spiritual Fakery

I have been wanting to make this video for quite a while. It's based on the teaching in the book The Physics of Heaven, which is very much a "Bethel book". It is sold in their bookstore, it's endorsed by their leaders, it's written by people from Bethel, including their two lead pastors, Bill Johnson and Beni Johnson. The book is a very open appeal to Christians to embrace New Age beliefs and practices. I truly wish I was exaggerating. In today's video I'm going to share quotes from the book to demonstrate the problems with it's teachings and show it's dangers. I'll address the way they misuse Scripture to support these teachings. I'll also be sharing content from a physicist who has weighed in to demonstrate how fake the "science" of the book is. Finally, I'll share some shocking details about the deceptions in the book related to the supposed credentials of the "quantum physicist" who they lean on as an expert. Spoiler, he's not. Bethel Church in Redding California has presented itself to the worldwide body of Christ as a guide for deeper and more miraculous spiritual experiences. Since they have such a wide impact and reach and their teachings on these issues are, I am sad to say, not only reckless but dangerous and unbiblical, I feel this video is worth making.

Major Southern Baptist Church HELD Ecumenical Conference With Roman Catholic Speakers~FBC Orlando’s Shocking Southern Baptist Capitulation


Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes. This article was posted prior to the event.



In the past, The Alpha Conference has been hosted by two ecumenical organizations — Major Change, a charismatic Evangelical organization, and Stone to Flesh, a charismatic Roman Catholic ecumenical organization. The two organizations have practically merged into one big ecumenical mess. And in the past, we've lambasted Hillsong Church for hosting the conference on their facilities.

But now that Hillsong Church is practically dead from its endless sex scandals among its leadership, Alpha seems to have found a new home—in the Southern Baptist Convention.

First Baptist Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, a Southern Baptist congregation according to both the Southern Baptist Convention's church search engine as well as the church's website, will be hosting the ecumenical conference this January 2023. On the church's website under the 'About' section, you will see the following, along with a link to the SBC statement of faith:

According to the Alpha Conference website, this year's conference will be held at the venue of First Baptist Church, Ft Lauderdale:

The address shown is one of the venue addresses for the megachurch which takes up roughly three city blocks:

According to its website, First Baptist Church, Ft. Lauderdale has been heavily involved in Alpha for quite a while. According to the church's website, "Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question about the Christian faith and is designed to create conversation. Week to week we will gather as a group to connect over a meal, watch a video on the basics of the Christian faith, and discuss what we think in an honest and safe environment."

However, Alpha is a horribly dangerous ecumenical movement that minimizes the gospel in favor of a watered-down "mere Christianity" type of religious movement that denies many of the essential tenets of the faith. In fact, this year's conference will not only host several Roman Catholic speakers and a number of women pastors—all in contradiction to the Southern Baptist Convention statement of faith that FBC Ft. Lauderdale claims to hold to—it will also be partnering with a neighboring Roman Catholic Church to hold a Catholic Mass during the conference:

The entire idea of the conference is to bury the distinctions between biblical Christianity and other false churches, particularly the Roman Catholic Church and the New Apostolic Reformation. On the first evening of the three-day conference, participants will be able to take a 12-minute walk to St. Anthony's Catholic Church, just a few blocks away, to participate in a Roman Catholic Mass:

The Southern Baptist Convention's priorities are truly astounding. Rather than focusing on the pressing issues facing the organization, such as churches spreading false teachings and leading people astray, the Convention has instead chosen to prioritize the most crucial issue of all: rooting out the elusive and terrifying threat of Racism and White Supremacy. How could anyone possibly sleep at night knowing that these heinous evils might be lurking in the shadows? It's a good thing the SBC elites are on the case, devoting all of their time and resources to this vital cause. Meanwhile, the spread of false gospels and the endangerment of souls can go ahead and take a back seat, no big deal. So, bravo to the SBC for staying focused on what truly matters.


FBC Orlando's Shocking Southern Baptist Capitulation


First Baptist Church, Orlando, Florida, is one of the largest churches in the SBC. They have completely capitulated to the culture on homosexuality. In this video, you will see that their pastor says that a healthy church must include “LGBTQ, Transgendered people, sexually immoral people, and heretics. This is not hyperbole. Where is the outrage? Why has this church not been disciplined out of the SBC? Oh, and you will not believe who was identified as the “chief cornerstone” of 1 Peter 2. You might assume this thumbnail is clickbait.

Neocharismatic Christianity and the Rise of the New Apostolic Reformation



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

When Paula White called angels from Africa and South America to wage spiritual warfare in the aftermath of the presidential election, she was tapping into the notion of territorial spirits associated with the emergence of what Peter Wagner has called the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). Wagner coined the phrase to describe a novel kind of independent charismatic Christianity led by apostles and organized into relational networks. Many of the prophecies associated with Trump’s rise and re-election came from persons associated with these networks. Some like Kris Vallotton of Bethel Church apologized while others such as Lance Wallnau doubled down. Regardless, much of the public support for Trump came from Christians connected to this new form of charismatic Christianity, even though it has largely remained unexplored by most journalists and historians.  

The movement exists as a series of overlapping ministerial networks either centered in megachurches or ministries. Harvest International Ministries led by Ché Ahn is one of the most prominent examples of the former, while Generals International under Cindy Jacobs exemplifies the latter. It may be better to identify the NAR as Neocharismatic Christianity because it represents a modification of the global Pentecostal-Charismatic (P-C) movement. The NAR is a subset of independent Charismatics, the third wing in Todd Johnson’s typology of the global movement. 

Three overlapping theological emphases represent the NAR’s doctrinal center: the church, spiritual warfare, and the cultural mandate. Guided by modern-day apostles, the church engages in the mission of cultural transformation through strategic spiritual warfare. What holds these emphases together is a vision to restore a more primitive form of Christianity centered on charismatic gifting under apostolic and prophetic leadership. Before dealing with these emphases, I want to sketch the movement’s origins.  

NAR Origins

This movement crystallized in the wake of the 1994 Toronto Revival after John Wimber asked John and Carol Arnott to remove their church from the Vineyard Association. While the Toronto Revival was an important catalyst, NAR’s roots go back to the Latter Rain Movement (LRM) in the late 1940s, which first began to talk about charismatic gifting through the laying on of hands and the restoration of apostles and prophets in Ephesians 4. One of the significant voices for the NAR view of the church is Bill Hamon, who came out of a congregation deeply impacted by LRM. Peter Wagner credits Hamon’s restorationism with helping him see that the offices of apostle and prophet have been restored.

In the 1970s and 1980s there was a push toward understanding prophecy and divine healing in terms of internal revelation through a word of knowledge. One can see this in Word of Faith circles, the circles around Peter Wagner and John Wimber, and the Kansas City Prophets connected to Mike Bickle’s church. Central to Wimber’s concept of power evangelism was receiving immediate illumination by the Spirit for every encounter. Wagner described the Fuller classes in the 1980s as Wimber getting a “word of knowledge” and being led by the Spirit in this way. It’s no mistake that Randy Clark and Bill Johnson both privilege receiving internal revelation as part of praying for the infirm in their Essential Guide to Healing. It is through the emphasis on internal revelation that the Kansas City Prophets intersect with Wimber’s own teaching and his interest in the prophetic in the late 1980s. Centered on the crucial role of internal revelation, these three streams ushered in a particular view of healing and the prophetic.

The final stream is more of an outlier, but no less influential. It’s Reformed Reconstructionism and Kuyperian sphere sovereignty, in which there are spheres of life (family, church, government) that have their own identity and patterns of authority. The embrace of the cultural mandate by engaging the seven mountains of culture ultimately came from the influence of this Reformed perspective. 

The usual story told is that Bill Bright (founder of Campus Crusade/Cru) and Loren Cunningham (founder of Youth With a Mission) both had a similar dream about seven mountains and then implemented the dream in the mid-1970s. What is left out is the role of Francis Schaeffer in transmitting both Rousas John Rushdoony’s theonomy and Kuyper’s vision of cultural transformation. As Julie Ingersoll has documented, Reconstructionism combines presuppositionalism with a postmillennial vision to bring everything under the authority of God’s law. This position was cast by Rushdoony and others as an effort to restore a Christian America. Through a 1987 conference in Dallas led by Reformed Reconstructionists such as Gary North (Rushdoony’s son-in-law), many charismatic Christians were exposed to these ideas in the form of a mandate to transform culture as part of the gospel proclamation. 

By the early 1990s, these five streams came together in the form of three theological emphases that now define those connected to NAR. One can find variations of these theological emphases in most persons associated with the movement, whether it's apostolic and prophetic gifting as part of the church, spiritual warfare through spiritual mapping, or a top-down approach to cultural transformation as primary to the proclamation of the gospel. 

Charismatic Gifting and the Church

John Wimber described his approach as “power evangelism” in part because it concerned the way in which signs and wonders represented the in-breaking of the kingdom through the power of the Spirit. The courses that Wimber and Peter Wagner offered at Fuller in the early 1980s became experimental places where power evangelism was tested and practiced. Wimber would teach and then the class would be opened to times of prayer where Wimber and others would receive words of knowledge. 

As Wimber, Wagner, and others began to defend and explain signs and wonders, they engaged in a two-pronged strategy. The first was to argue against an Enlightenment worldview hostile to the miraculous and which they thought many evangelicals had embraced. Grounded in presuppositionalism, worldview thinking had emerged in the 1970s as the way evangelicals should engage others. Every person operated with a set of basic assumptions about life that constituted their view of the world. Wimber and Wagner turned this idea against evangelicalism itself. Aligned to this strategy was a more historical argument regarding the presence of the miraculous in the history of Christianity and its suppression by Christian thinkers after the Enlightenment. The basic claim was that Enlightenment thought had infiltrated the Christian worldview causing the suppression of the miraculous.

For much of the 1980s and early 1990s, the idea that signs and wonders, and therefore charismatic gifting, had been suppressed existed alongside the restorationist narrative that came out of the LRM. Whether it was an Enlightenment worldview or a church that had fallen into institutionalized Christianity, the remedy and goal were the same: to restore Christianity through the full function of charismatic gifting expressed in signs and wonders. By the end of the 1980s, Wagner had put together worldview, power evangelism, and charismatic gifting as key dimensions of so-called Third Wave Christianity. 

The alliances that Wimber and Wagner forged during this time proved to be unsustainable for a variety of reasons. At its core, however, was the question of how hard a person was going to push toward the “not yet” dimension of the kingdom. This was both a theological and a practical question. How far would one allow the prophetic to go? Did signs and wonders include all kinds of spiritual manifestations like jumping, screaming, barking, etc.? The Toronto Revival proved to be the breaking point, which invariably placed the Vineyard on a different trajectory in its “quest for the radical middle” between evangelicalism and a more intense form of charismatic Christianity that decided it was best to push toward a more fully realized eschatology. 

With this fracture having occurred, restorationism became dominant among many who left the Vineyard and began to form independent networks around Peter Wagner, Ché Ahn, John Arnott, Randy Clark, and Mike Bickle. As Wagner later noted, it was Bill Hamon who gave him the theological framework to see that the offices of apostle and prophet must be restored to the church. This theological turn meant that Ephesians became the canon within the canon. The Pauline vision of the church was interpreted as being a series of networks governed by apostles with the support of prophets. Through the laying on of hands, apostolic ministry and succession unfolded, the gifts were released, and the church could finally begin to wage warfare to establish the kingdom. 

Strategic Level Spiritual Warfare

Wimber’s approach to power evangelism not only implied that signs and wonders must be a regular part of the church’s life but also meant that mission became a confrontation between principalities and powers. Alongside the defense of power evangelism during the 1980s, there was a concerted attempt to begin to reflect upon spiritual warfare in the life of the Christian and as part of the mission of the church. 

The symposium on power evangelism at Fuller in 1988 both summarized this trend and set the agenda for its future. Published as Wrestling With Dark Angels (Regal, 1990), the conference presentations and responses dealt with questions about the demonic, exorcism, and sickness and suffering. In his presentation, Peter Wagner introduced the idea of territorial spirits, which he had taken from Timothy Warner, then a professor of missions at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Wagner suggested that there was a hierarchy of governance among evil spirits with some being over nations while others were over neighborhoods. He explained resistance to the gospel in terms of the presence of demonic strongholds over geographical areas. As evidence, Wagner noted the outbreak of revival in Argentina when ministers like Pastor Omar Cabrera and Carlos Annacondia began to identify spirits that controlled certain areas and to engage in deliverance ministry. 

By 1990 George Otis, Jr. had coined “spiritual mapping” to refer to the activity of identifying demonic spirits and strongholds in a particular region, city, or country. Spiritual warfare took on a strategic dimension. A congregation that wished to evangelize an area could map out the strongholds and then begin to pray specifically against them, or even go on a prayer walk around those areas. This strategy was put into practice by Ted Haggard in the early 1990s in Colorado City as part of his effort to grow New Life Church. After connecting with Wagner, Cindy Jacobs began teaching spiritual mapping, eventually moving her headquarters to Colorado Springs in 1993 where it remained until 2004. Jacobs calls her network Generals International because it exists in part to facilitate social reformation through training generals of intercession. 

Over the next two decades, the focus on spiritual warfare developed into a full-blown angelology. Books began to be written about seeing angels and even activating angels who were also over geographical regions as the counter to demonic forces. Moreover, prayer and worship became weapons to actualize the presence of the kingdom. One cannot understand Sean Feucht’s fusion of worship and political activism apart from this new way of conceiving spiritual warfare.

Wimber’s focus on power encounters through signs and wonders became a confrontation between principalities and powers that led to a new kind of spiritual warfare theology. This approach to warfare required that individuals begin to learn how to perceive and act upon the supernatural and thus listen to the Spirit in words of knowledge. Part of establishing the kingdom was flowing in the supernatural through signs, wonders, and seeing the world as a landscape of spiritual war. It was yet another dimension of the push into the full realization of the kingdom as the “not yet” became less and less. With a renewed church led by apostles and a focus on strategic level spiritual warfare, Christians could fulfill the cultural mandate.

The Seven Mountain Cultural Mandate

Shortly after Peter Wagner began to talk about a “church quake” through the restoration of a church led by modern-day apostles, Lance Wallnau had a conversation with Loren Cunningham over what Wallnau referred to as the seven mountains (religion, education, family, business, government, the arts, and media). Following Kuyper more closely, Cunningham called it the seven spheres of influence. After that conversation, Wallnau introduced the idea to a larger audience through a prophetic roundtable hosted by Mark Chironna on TBN. Closely associated with the use of seven mountains was the idea that the church had focused too exclusively on the salvation of souls to the exclusion of the transformation of culture. Wallnau differentiated between the gospel of forgiveness and the gospel of the kingdom in which the latter concerned cultural change. 

In 2008, three books came out that showed just how much the seven-mountain mandate had become part of NAR theology. Peter Wagner issued Dominion (republished as On Earth As It is in Heaven), in which he explicitly noted the connection to Reformed Reconstructionism. Wagner also indicated that he had embraced a postmillennial eschatology. Organized around apostolic leadership, the church was to use democratic structures to transform nations and thus secure prosperity for all. The message of prosperity from the Word of Faith movement had been wedded to Rushdoony’s notion of the triumph of the kingdom and the prosperity this triumph would introduce. Dominion concerned the church’s using democracy to take control through invading the spheres symbolized by the seven mountains.

While Wagner talked about dominion, Cindy Jacobs published The Reformation Manifesto, in which she called for a complete reformation of soul and society. Jacobs did not go so far as to embrace postmillennialism, but she pushed hard against the negative outlook of premillennial dispensationalism. Society was not going to get worse as a prelude to a rapture. Instead, society would be reformed through a progressive unfolding of the kingdom. The church’s mission was to bring the kingdom to all seven spheres through intercession and intervention, which would unleash economic prosperity.

Dominion through reformation was not radical enough for Johnny Enlow. In The Seven Mountain Prophecy, he placed the seven mountains into a prophetic framework that called for a revolution. Enlow was a deacon in Earl Paulk, Jr.’s church in the late 1980s. He had been exposed to Paulk’s “Kingdom Now” theology and its roots in Reconstructionism. That theology found its new home in the seven mountains. Billing himself as a social reformer, he pushed for an Elijah revolution where a generation would prioritize prayer and the prophetic to take the nations and transform the culture. 

Over the next several years, the seven mountain mandate would be folded into a pledge to reform existing social orders by invading and transforming culture. Ché Ahn’s 2010 Reformer’s Pledge was a “who’s who” of NAR players with Bill Johnson, Lou Engle, Lance Wallnau, John Arnott, Peter Wagner, and James Goll, among others, writing chapters and taking the pledge. It was followed in 2013 by Lance Wallnau and Bill Johnson’s Invading Babylon. Establishing the kingdom meant operating in the supernatural and bringing the manifest presence of God to each mountain. Where Rushdoony had talked about secularism, Wallnau and Johnson used the biblical metaphor of Babylon.

These books set the tone for the 2016 election when Wallnau declared that Donald Trump was God’s chaos candidate, a new Cyrus sent to disrupt the existing order so that the kingdom might be established. Wallnau claimed to have received a word of knowledge that Trump would be a wrecking ball, an idea he expanded into his book God’s Chaos Candidate. In an important sense, for Wallnau, a collision had come between the church and secularism over the seven mountains. Trump was going to be the one who broke the control of a secular cabal. 


What are we to make of this Neocharismatic Christianity? Constraints of space only permit three final observations. First, the NAR represents the largest number of independent charismatics in the United States. Because it exists through a series of autonomous ministry networks, it functions as a kind of family of churches that resource one another. Apostles are patriarchs and matriarchs who lead the family. There is a kind of egalitarianism where women can lead and pastor alongside a view of male headship. Second, with the help of Reformed Reconstructionism, it has placed the social gospel into a charismatic framework to drive a conservative political agenda. Wagner wrote a memo to Cindy Jacobs in which he said that the father of the social gospel, Walter Rauschenbusch, had tried to introduce the cultural mandate alongside the evangelistic one, but he was rejected because of liberal theology. Finally, its restorationism, emphasis on the prophetic, and desire to actualize the kingdom in full means that it is constantly engaged in future casting. Christian tradition means very little in this context except as a set-up for where the church is and what the church has done wrong. Even though NAR adherents claim to restore apostolic Christianity, the movement, in many respects, is Christianity fully conformed to democratic individualism. Apostles guide megachurches and ministries as mediating institutions unleashing an army of individuals who utilize pop culture and democratic mechanisms to facilitate Christian expansion. There is much more to be said about the NAR, both in terms of its strengths and weaknesses. We will surely benefit from a greater and deeper conversation about this complex network of charismatic churches and leaders.

1 Cor 11 But I would have you know that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. 1 Tim 2 11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression. 15 Notwithstanding she shall be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith and charity and holiness with sobriety. 1 Corinthians 7:17 17 But as God has distributed to each one, as the Lord has called each one, so let him walk. And so, I ordain in all the churches. Ephesians 4 11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, Women can teach, but don't have authority over the Church.... Christ is the Authority over the Church. Christ chose the 12 Apostles, it's God that gives the gifts not men.

Paula White Cain's apostate history has influenced Trump in a negative way, what with her "Word of Faith" charismatic, dominionist, ecumenical, interfaith, universalist, astral projection heresies. Plus her multiple divorces & re-marriages. Just see these posts for proof:

Dr. Robert Jeffress Gleefully Interviews Sean Hannity, Who Proclaims the False Gospel of the UNCHRISTIAN Catholic Church (10-22-17)
 Dr. Robert Jeffress Interviews Sean Hannity at First Baptist Dallas
about his new “Christian” film, “Let there be Light,” as well as his (Catholic) faith
and perspective on our nation today.

"Then there is Robert Jeffress. Jeffress, who is another extremely prominent evangelical pastor, made many claims about the vaccines throughout 2021. For one, he repeatedly stated that the vaccines are a “gift from God.”[9] That’s odd, because the radical left-wing Governor of New York, Kathy Hochul, also said that the vaccines are “from God to us and we must say, thank you, God.”[10] It sounds like the same mentality is at work in both people, to me. My personal favorite, however, is when Jeffress compared Jesus’ death on the cross to the abortion of children whose fetal cell lines were used in either the research or testing phases of our latest injections (and many others). I’m not kidding. Read his words for yourself:

“If we are talking about something from babies that were already aborted, I would just remind people that the whole Christian message is that Christ—who was innocent—died for us and brought something good out of that unjust death.”[11]

If we already have aborted fetal cells, why not make good use of them? Since Jesus willingly gave his life for the sins of the world, it only follows that those children who were unwillingly murdered should give their lives for the health of the world. In the apostate church, this message makes perfect sense.

It’s also worth noting that Jakes, Graham, Jeffress, and Lucado are collectively worth at least $60 million. Just humble servants of the Lord. I cannot help but ask a rhetorical question: are there any financial incentives involved in preaching the vaccine gospel?"

Is It Time for the American Church to Grow Up?



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Christmas is just around the corner. I know this because Halloween is a month off and around these parts, the Christmas decorations go up after the last trick-or-treater has gone home for the night. The arrival of the season (which wouldn’t surprise me if it starts this Tuesday) will come with the usual protests. Articles will be written about the War on Christmas. Facebook posts will go up about keeping Christ in Christmas, and spleens will be vented over changing school Christmas pageants to “Holiday Pageants.” And yes, we should keep Christ in Christmas. I’m not here to argue that. However, I am here to argue that perhaps for too long, American Christians have been taking their faith for granted.

It probably went under your radar, but the administration of the Putnam County School District in Tennessee announced that teachers and coaches were prohibited from leading their students and teams in prayer. This came on the heels of a letter from the Americans United for Separation of Church and State alleging “prayer and proselytizing” in the schools. This has been going on for years. An atheist group takes issue with something, threatens the school district, which caves to avoid a lawsuit.

In response, following a recent football game between Upperman and Stone Memorial high schools, the players led everyone in prayer. One person wrote on Facebook, “Satan’s power was defeated tonight, as the threat of a legal action to forbid prayer after the game was overwhelmed by player-led prayer supported by parents and fans in solidarity on Overall Field. God bless the Baxter and Stone players for their faith and courage.” While the incident makes for a good news story, I’m not sure that it constitutes a victory over Satan.

Chances are, especially in light of the church-state COVID clashes in the U.S. and in particular Canada, things like this will become more commonplace.  And perhaps, American Christians could use a little tempering with fire.

I used to volunteer for a non-profit that supported persecuted Christians. As part of my volunteer duties, I would visit churches and deliver presentations about persecution and hand out information. The idea was to raise awareness about the problem among U.S. Christians who are often blissfully or even willfully unaware of it. At one church, my presentation replaced the Sunday sermon. The service opened with the usual 30-minute worship concert of current and recurrent CCM songs. The young woman in front of me jumped up as soon as the music started and contorted herself into what I guess was a posture of praise: bent sideways at the waist, head cocked the other way, and one hand thrust into the air. Much to my amazement, she managed to stay that way for the entire time. When it was my turn to speak, she glared at me like I was offering adult magazines and bong hits. To be fair, while most of the congregation remained stoic, they did clean me out of my literature and several signed up as volunteers. But the young lady disappeared as soon as church was over after giving me one last withering look. Perhaps I ruined what she expected to be another good day at church. At another church, people cried copiously during my presentation but blew me off after the service to eat a donut and have a cup of coffee. Or make a break for the local breakfast buffet.

I have often encountered a nervous avoidance among Christians when it comes to the subject of persecution. I suppose that may be because stories of persecution are at odds with the moral-therapeutic deism that has replaced theology in so many places. The idea runs counter that the notion of a “good, good father” who has a plan for your life. It isn’t the easy Christianity of “doing life together,” “boyfriend Jesus,” and the latest hits from your local Christian radio station. It isn’t a sermon that could just as easily be a motivational speech for an MLM.

But as it turns out, Christians in other parts of the world carry actual burdens. Serious ones.

While I was a volunteer I made the acquaintance of Sarah Liu, a Chinese Christian who was the editor of an underground newspaper. She was arrested one night in her pajamas, which was not unusual for her. But this time, they took her to a secret location. They tied her to a chair and whipped her feet with a hanger and put cigarettes out on her skin. Shackled to a post in a warehouse, she was made to walk in a circle all night. In the morning she realized that she had circled the post so many times that she was walking in a trail of her own blood. She was imprisoned and forced to make Christmas lights to sell in America. Think about that when you are decorating this year. Sarah remains one of the gentlest, sweetest souls and one of the most committed believers I have ever met.

Or consider the 21 Coptic Christians beheaded by ISIS on the beach in 2015 for refusing to renounce their faith. One particularly odious discernment blogger said that as members of the Coptic Church, they were not actually Christian. Well, let’s see: They were given the option of denying Christ or having their heads cut off. They chose to die. They sound like committed Christians to me, despite them not adhering to the blogger’s preferred version of faith. How many of us would offer our necks if given a similar choice?

I could keep you here all day with stories of Christians who have been shot, scalped, burned alive, sold into slavery, and mutilated in persecuting countries. Or even shoved into ovens to be cooked alive. In some countries, people are not even considered mature Christians until they have been arrested at least once.

When James and John asked Jesus if they could sit at his right and left in the coming kingdom, Jesus said, “You don’t know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?” The members of the persecuted church are drinking deep.

Are we in the USA guilty of idolatry? In the contemporary church, people equate idolatry with putting other things before God like video games, NASCAR, a home business, or a favorite sports team. But as it was originally understood in the Ancient Near East, idolatry was the practice of creating a physical idol and coaxing the god of your choice to literally come down and live in it. The god would then be pampered with the expectation that the worshipper’s needs and demands would be met. Have we tried to make God in our own image? Have we created a system that we expect God to inhabit with the expectation of Him serving us, rather than us serving him? Have we made an idol out of church?

Beyond the name-it-and-claim-it prosperity gospel heresy, one wonders what is becoming of the church. Have worship and sacrifice been replaced with vision-casting and worship teams? Is the sacred space nothing more than a concert venue? Has the biblical instruction of our children been usurped by pizza and games? And what place have we made for God in all of this?

I suspect that the American Church has made itself into an idol that it expects God to inhabit. Back when I was going to seminary online, I was deep into the Christian lifestyle and was listening to a famous national Christian radio network. During a pledge drive, a woman called in and gushed about how the radio station had changed her husband’s life and that now he was saved because of the jocks and their playlist. Apparently, Jesus had nothing to do with that. A church I used to attend now tosses beachballs into the congregation and sings Disney and country music songs in an effort to be attractional and get the numbers. This, as the big-business church model, is burning down. Even as empires like Hillsong are starting to crack.

Perhaps American Christians have come to see faith as a moneymaker in some cases. I used to work in a Christian bookstore and we sold boxed Bible studies by a very famous Christian celebrity. The cost for one of her Bible studies was $199 at the time. You got a box with a leader’s guide, a participant guide, and a DVD. It probably cost around $10 to make. $199 to learn more about a man who was happy to share his wisdom for free.

For others, it may be convenient. A place where people can feel warm and fuzzy, and cuddle with a God who will give them everything they ask for. A place where they can talk about their beards or tattoos and be secure in their salvation and the superiority of their biblical knowledge and doctrine. American Christians have never been made to even count the cost, let alone pay it. Ask for a Dietrich Bonhoeffer and you may well find a money changer. As Sarah Liu once said in a speech, “Everyone wants Jesus, but no one wants the cross.”

The time may be coming for the church in America to grow up.

The State of the Church: An Interview with John MacArthur

The Trail of Spiritual Delusion: Our Weary World Has Seen It All Before



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

There is nothing new under the sun (Eccl. 1:9). Everything that man can do to man has been done before—and will be done again.

This is especially true of false teachers and prophets leading the credulous astray. It was done anciently; it was done in the middle years; it is being done today; and it will be done in the end of days. More about the connection with today and the last days, after a bit of historical catching-up.

This trail of betrayal and delusion began with the first gathering of mankind together into a nation. That nation was ruled by Nimrod (Gen. 10:8; 1 Chron. 1:10; Micah 5:6), until his death; and in that same general time frame, God splintered the proto-nation into family (tribal) groups with the confusion of tongues at Babel.

But then, as Alexander Hislop (1807-1865) pieced pre-history together1, Semiramis, Nimrod’s widow, was the guiding (human) spirit behind a new religion artfully crafted to pull the tribes of man back into a new spiritual unity–and ultimately a political unity as well. Guiding the guide, of course, was Satan, ever intent on thwarting God’s plans for man and substituting his own.

So powerful was this pagan religion that it ultimately led very nearly the entire world into apostasy. It goes by many names and takes many forms in many lands. It pays homage to many gods. But their original impetus derived from the first delusion of a powerful leader (Nimrod) who was slain and who was believed to have returned to life as a great god

These related religions were known as “mystery religions,” for they were shrouded in mysteries revealed only to initiates. Hence there was a popular level of revealed pagan religion, into which the masses entered, and a higher level open only to a select few, who underwent initiation rites which they were sworn never to reveal.

How Did the Great Apostasy Happen?
Please recall that all this began just a few generations after the Great Flood. Nimrod was a great-grandson of Noah (Gen. 10:7)–and Noah was well acquainted with Jehovah God! Not only did Noah know God, he survived the Flood by 350 years (Gen. 9:28). So he was still very much alive when Nimrod flourished! (If you wish to delve into this complex web of false spirits and false gods for yourself, see footnote 1 for a source to begin.)

In view of the brief time frame and the overwhelming success of the mystery religions, we must ask: How was it possible to pull the wool over almost the whole of mankind so thoroughly as to cause them to turn their backs upon the true God, who had so recently revealed His awesome power through the Great Flood?

There is a large clue in Deuteronomy 13:1-3. In this passage, which is included in Moses’ restatement and summation of the Mosaic Law, is a warning from God about false prophets: “If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”

If a prophet gives a sign or wonder, and the sign or wonder comes to pass . . .  Think about that. God was warning the children of Israel against genuine wonders-—things that would really happen or at the very least would convincingly appear to happen-—but they would be false signs. And God would allow this as a test to show who really loved Him—and who therefore would resist the tremendous temptation to follow the crowd, which was being swayed by what their eyes beheld or their hearts believed.

We are told by ancient historians Justin and Epiphanius that in the initiation rites, the image of a god (Osiris, Tammuz, or Adonis—all of whom Hislop believed represented Nimrod) spoke to the candidates (Hislop, p. 67). We are also, however, given to understand that powerful drugs were administered to the candidates, and these may have been hallucinatory. In any case, the candidates were convinced—not only of the truth of the vision but also that they would be forever lost if they revealed beyond the brotherhood what they had seen and heard.

A Three-Fold Deception
I believe that the appeal of this false religion was three-fold, relying on false signs, a false vision, and a false permissiveness. I am convinced the vision centered on a false messiah or savior, who offered devotees the salvation mankind has always yearned for. This false messiah was Nimrod or one of his many avatars.2 But this spiritual bait offered yet more—much more! Not only was a savior put forward, with the hope of eternal life, but men and women could have all this without giving up the sinful pleasures of this life. In fact, Semiramis, who was subsequently “deified” by this false religion, was known to be a lewd woman, reveling in orgies. She encouraged her devotees to follow her example—and perhaps this was the greatest lure of all!

Summing up, think of the great deception as a savior offered, with confirming signs, and “come as you are—stay as you are.” Small wonder that the bait was swallowed en masse!

Note especially that Satan put forward his own candidate for the Messiah many centuries before God, in the fullness of time, revealed Jesus Christ as the true Messiah (see Hislop, chapter 2, sub-section 5, p. 58 ff).

Demonic Influence Over Israel and the Young Church
I will not belabor this point, for it is obvious that the same seductive power which was exercised over all mankind shortly after the Fall was specifically exercised over the children of Israel to lead them from worshipping Jehovah God to serving the false gods of surrounding pagan nations. Suffice it to quote a warning from God given shortly before Moses’ successor, Joshua, led the Israelites into the Promised Land.

Moses told the assembled people that after they crossed the Jordan, they would face blessings from Mt. Gerizim if they obeyed the Lord, and curses from Mt. Ebal if they disobeyed Him. The first curse pronounced was against setting up idols, which represented false gods: “Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen” (Deut. 27:15). But despite their good intentions at that instant, the time came when “They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not” (Deut. 32:17). The Old Testament goes on to record the dismal fulfillment of that curse and its consequences among the Chosen People.

That the apostasy was still a huge issue at the time of Christ, and spilled over into His young church, is shown in Paul’s warning to the Corinthians: “What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils (demons), and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils” (1 Cor. 10:19-21).

Demonic Power Is at Work Even Now
Is demonic power active in our present-day culture? Indeed it is, despite the fact that we live in a society that largely does not believe in supernatural power of any sort. For this reason, Satan’s “powers of the air” tend to be low-key and at work behind the scenes, but they are present. For example, Mormon missionaries ask prospective converts to read the Book of Mormon and then wait for a burning in their breast, which, they say, will confirm the truth of the Book of Mormon. If they pray for it, they will generally get it!

Many New Agers look for the appearance of The Coming One prophesied by Alice Ann Bailey, who wrote books dictated to her by her “spirit master.”3 Ray Yungen (see footnote 3) notes: “To occultists, the significance of the Alice Bailey writings has heralded anticipation of a World Healer and Savior [author’s emphasis] in the coming Aquarian Age (the astrological age of enlightenment and peace). This savior would unite all mankind under his guidance. This person was not to be the Lord Jesus Christ, of whom Christians await the return, but an entirely different individual who would embody all the great principles of occultism, chiefly the divinity and perfectibility of man.”4

In Yungen’s book, he documents the rapid expansion of New Age principles in the present day, including ominous inroads into the church. But while the principles are purely New Age, they are being sold to the credulous as exciting revelations of new paths to spiritual growth for our time. And this is taking place not only in mainline denominations which have been drifting from biblical Christianity for decades, but also in evangelical churches.

Demonic Power Will Grow Stronger in the Last Days
The world is being prepared even now to accept and believe the witness of the sign when the false prophet will call down fire from heaven (Rev. 13:13). Note, for example, the unprecedented increase in emphasis on television on supernatural powers, ghosts, and spirits. These themes have been around for a very long time, but not since the superstitious days of the Middle Ages have they been accentuated so heavily. I believe this build-up is preparing the populace for Satan’s introduction of the Beast and his false prophet, who will deceive “them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast;” (Rev. 13-14).

Thus will the false prophet seemingly verify that the Beast that rose out of the sea (Rev. 13:1), also known as “the son of perdition” and the anti-Christ, is indeed the promised Messiah. Once again, God will be testing mankind by allowing these miracle-signs to reveal the faithful remnant who will cling to the revealed Word and will not be snared by powerful delusion.

May all who read these words be among that faithful remnant!

Note: While some of Hislop’s extrapolations and projections seem forced, his prodigious research into ancient sources cannot be written off, and I believe that his general conclusions are sound. It is obvious that something led the world rapidly away from God, and Hislop’s explanation is the most logical description I know of.

BOB JONES UNIVERSITY then and now…Christian Learning Center, an apostate, ecumenical partner




republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:
     Christian Learning Centers of Greenville County (CLC) is a self proclaimed gospel ministry ministering to public school students through the Released Time program in Greenville SC area public schools. The CLC mission statement reads, "[CLC] encourage [children] to embrace the gospel of Jesus Christ". CLC's ministry verse, John 4:34, carries with it a clear missions meaning. The CLC calls us to "worship with us" on its fundraising page.

Janice Butler Founder and CEO of CLC

    CLC, however, is not what it seems. The CLC leadership and sponsoring churches are made up of everything from conservative evangelicals, to left leaning charismatics, to rank theological liberals. The Chairman of CLC board, Kevin Brady, attends Advent United Methodist Church. Board member, Richard Furman, attends First Presbyterian Church of Greenville. Board member, Gabe Vicks, attends Word of Life. Board member, Todd Hyneman, attends Holland Park Church of Christ. Among sponsoring churches, three United Methodist churches, a liberal Presbyterian church, several charismatic churches, and a half dozen SBC churches are listed on the CLC website. Social justice is often promoted on CLC podcasts. In the CLC doctrinal statement, the gospel is at best supplemented and at worst replaced with social justice. Three podcasts produced by the CLC present a wildly liberal view of race relations and a posting of this extremely worldly music video promoting social justice/social gospel can be found on CLC's official Facebook page. For the 2019 event, far left actor Kevin Sorbo was the keynote speaker.


Kevin Brady
   On Tuesday, May 12, 2020 CLC had as their special guests for its fundraising event North Greenville University (NGU) president Gene Fant and Dr. Steve Pettit president of Bob Jones University (BJU). From a video recorded on BJU campus, Pettit gave lavish praise and full endorsement of the CLC. "We are fully engaged in helping the [CLC]...Dr. Bobby Wood one of our vice presidents is now a new member of the [CLC] board and we are so glad he is a university we are FULLY SUPPORTIVE of the CLC...I'd like to to highly encourage you to consider a financial gift to the CLC because they are a FRONT LINE MINISTRY GETTING THE GOSPEL OUT to those who live in darkness".
    On Thursday, October 22, 2020 the CLC again had as their special guests for its fundraising event  NGU president Gene Fant and Dr. Steve Pettit. Pettit once again paid lavish praise to CLC. "I'm joining you for a few moments this evening to ENDORSE the work of [CLC] and to encourage you to SUPPORT their ministry...[BJU] has the privilege of PARTNERING with [CLC] in providing the gospel and biblical training to public high school students...we SHARE a common mission...we share the gospel...We feel privileged to sew into the spiritual harvest WITH [CLC]...we are thankful for the opportunity to FULLY ENGAGE with the center...this is the kind of PARTNERSHIP we so value...let me challenge you to determine how you could PARTNER with the Christian Learning Center to promote the I encourage you to make a gift to this ministry. They are worthy of our support. This is an organization that is on the front lines of ministry...and it is a ministry that we can get behind".
    The CLC is NOT front line gospel ministry. At the helm of this organization are those who attend churches that deny gospel. They go into schools to teach what their own denominations teach - a false gospel. Pettit is not only solidifying his position of fellowship with highly compromised SBC Gene Fant, he also, along with Dr. Bobby Wood, finds himself shoulder-to-shoulder in MINISTRY COOPERATION with new evangelicals and apostates. Dr. Pettit has fully engaged himself in a classic ecumenical relationship; a relationship which is strictly forbidden in Scripture. Of the likes of CLC, the Scriptures are clear..."do not receive him into your house nor greet him, for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds (2 John 1:10) "...[anyone] who preach[es] another gospel to you than what we have preached to you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED (Gal 1:8). 
  Dr. Pettit says endorse, support, partner, share, fully engage with an apostate. The scriptures say let them be accursed, do not receive him or greet him, have no fellowship. This partnership is not just an issue of secondary separation, it is that of primary separation. Dr. Pettit is not continuing in the footsteps of the biblically separated leadership of the past, he is following in the footsteps of the late Dr. Billy Graham. Graham contaminated the gospel for untold generations and led God's people into sin by welcoming apostates and gospel deniers into ministry cooperation with him. Dr. Pettit's compromise and disobedience, I believe, will snuff out the Greenville gospel light and remove the Bible from the "buckle of the Bible belt." 
WARNING: Please understand the BJU of today is nothing like the BJU of yesterday. Pettit continues to insist that BJU remains a biblically separated fundamentalist institution of yesterday.

Concerns Raised About Faith Leaders at Rose Garden Event, After 8 Attendees Test Positive for COVID

In the background (left to right) are televangelist Jentezen Franklin, Acting Liberty University President Jerry Prevo, and Skip Heitzig, pastor of Calvary of Albuquerque. In the foreground are Cissie Graham Lynch, Franklin Graham's daughter, and Paula White, head of the White House Faith & Opportunity Initiative.

Now that eight people who attended the Rose Garden ceremony last Saturday for Supreme Court Nominee Amy Coney Barrett have tested positive for COVID-19, concerns are being raised about the faith leaders who attended the event.

One of the faith leaders—Franklin Graham, CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA)—sat next to the Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame University, at the ceremony.

Rev. Jenkins is one of eight attendees who tested positive for COVID-19 this week and has been criticized by Notre Dame students and faculty for not following social distancing protocols at the event. (Most of the approximately 150 people attending the Rose Garden ceremony did not wear masks and sat close together.)

Yet according to Mark Barber, a spokesman for Samaritan’s Purse and the BGEA, Graham tested negative for COVID this week before a trip to Alaska. 

Barber added that Graham’s daughter, Cissie Graham Lynch, who sat next to him at the ceremony, is in “great health,” but didn’t comment on whether she had been tested for COVID.

In addition to attending the Rose Garden ceremony, Graham also led the Washington Prayer March with thousands of participants last Saturday. However, the prayer march was held prior to the 5:00 p.m. Rose Garden event.

Also at the ceremony, directly behind Graham and Rev. Jenkins, was Jerry Prevo, acting president of Liberty University. Prevo also participated in the prayer march along with more than 2,200 Liberty University students.

Prevo tweeted Friday night that many had asked about his health since visiting President Trump at the White House on Saturday. Prevo said both he and his wife had just tested negative for COVID-19.

Less is known about the condition of other faith leaders who were at the event and sitting in close proximity to Rev. Jenkins.

This includes Paula White, who heads the White House’s Faith and Opportunity Initiative and Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board.

White was slated to speak at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority 2020” conference in Atlanta earlier this week but did not do so, according to Religion News Service.

I reached out to White for comment, but did not get a response by time of publishing.

Also slated to speak at the “Road to Majority 2020” conference was Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma. Lankford was not at the Rose Garden ceremony but had several meetings this week with Senator Mike Lee of Utah, who was another one of the eight people at the ceremony who tested positive for COVID this week.

The others who tested positive for COVID were President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump; Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president; Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina; Former N.J. Governor Chris Christie; and an unnamed journalist.

Lankford said when he learned of Senator Lee’s diagnosis, he left the faith conference and drove home. Today, Lankford announced that his test for COVID had come back negative, but said he would still quarantine.

Both Ralph Reed, who heads the Faith and Freedom Coalition, and televangelist Jentezen Franklin, pastor of the Georgia megachurch Free Chapel, also attended the Rose Garden ceremony and  subsequently spoke at the “Road to Majority 2020” conference.

I reached out to Reed for comment about his health but did not hear back.

Franklin, however, posted a video on Twitter today, saying that he not only had attended the Rose Garden event, but had prayed with President Trump beforehand. Yet Franklin said he learned today that his COVID test had come back negative, and encouraged his church family to join him at services on Sunday.

Mike Pence, who has tested negative for COVID, also spoke at the “Road to Majority 2020” conference.

Other high-profile faith leaders at the Rose Garden event include Greg Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship; Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church; Skip Heitzig, pastor of Calvary Church of Albuquerque; Robert Morris, pastor of Gateway Church; and Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.

Attempts to reach these men was not immediately successful.

Rose Garden guests

According to the Arkansas Democrat GazetteGary Bauer, president of American Values, attended the Rose Garden event, as well.

I talked with a spokesperson with American Values to confirm Bauer’s attendance and to inquire about his condition. She said someone would get back to me, but at time of publishing, no one has.

UPDATE: On Sunday, Calvary Church of Albuquerque said in an email that Pastor Skip Heitzig was tested last Saturday at the White House and his test came back negative. He was tested again since President Trump’s announcement of a positive result and the church is awaiting results of that test. Pastor Heitzig reportedly feels great and is not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19.

TUSTIN, Calif. — The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN), a worldwide television network that for years has aired a number of controversial prosperity preachers, says that as part of its “new vision” and changes to the lineup, it will no longer air Word of Faith teacher Kenneth Copeland, whose “Believer’s Voice of Victory” broadcast had been a part of TBN for 40 years. Airing in Copeland’s stead will be Steven Furtick, a hipster megachurch preacher who reportedly lives a lavish lifestyle and often preaches man-centered sermons.

“Just like the world in which we live, TBN is constantly evolving, seeking to provide exclusive programming that is uniquely built for the challenges facing Christians in this moment,” Marketing Director Nate Daniels told reporters. “As the leading global religious broadcaster, we want to provide our viewers with compelling and dynamic preaching, teaching, news and entertainment.”

He said that “[in] pursuit of a new vision” from President Matt Crouch, the son of the late Paul and Jan Crouch, the network has been making changes over the past several years, which includes distancing from sharathons and becoming more family-friendly.

“As a part of this transition we chose to move away from telethons, upgraded to HD, expanded our streaming platforms, forged partnerships with family brands like K-LOVE, Museum of the Bible and others, and have replaced some programs with new original content from voices like Christine Caine, Mike Huckabee, Mike Rowe and more,” Daniels told the Christian Post.

Copeland advised his followers about the change via Facebook and his website this week, writing in part, “Recently, Matt let me know they believe the Lord is taking TBN in a new direction, and our daily program, ‘Believer’s Voice of Victory’ (BVOV), isn’t really a fit for their future programming. Therefore, as of Oct. 2, 2020, the BVOV broadcast will no longer air on TBN.”

As previously reported, Copeland, who teaches that God wants Christians to be rich and teaches viewers to confess away sickness, has generated controversy for a number of years, including in 2015, when he asserted on his television broadcast that he flies on a private jet to avoid being bothered by “demon” passengers.

“Oral [Roberts] used to fly airlines,” he said. “But even back then it got to the place where it was agitating his spirit—people coming up to him, he had become famous, and they wanted him to pray for them and all that. You can’t manage that today [in] this dope-filled world, and get in a long tube with a bunch of demons. And it’s deadly.”

While he said that he didn’t want to fly with a “bunch of demons,” moments later, Copeland contended that he needed a private jet to help reach the lost.

“We’re in soul business here. We’ve got a dying world around us. We’ve got a dying nation around us,” he proclaimed. “We can’t even get there on the airlines.”

Brown cursed the virus and said he had saved Florida. On Feb. 28, Shawn Bolz said, “The tide is turning now! It’s 
not going to be the pandemic that people are afraid of.” On March 4, Cindy Jacobs took “throne room authority” 
over the coronavirus and declared it illegal. On March 20, Kris Vallotton decreed that he had broken the power of 
the coronavirus. On March 20, Bill Johnson decreed that no Christian would get the virus. On March 21, Katt Kerr 
took authority over the coronavirus and commanded it to go away. On March 29, Kenneth Copeland declared “the 
coronavirus is over.” As of July 22, the coronavirus was credited with 622,464 deaths worldwide. (This is excerpted

July 31, 2020,, 866-295-4143) - Todd Bentley, in the hospital for various 
ailments, is marketing “a rare resource” featuring prayers for healing. For just $25 you can “enjoy David Hunter, 
Lou Engle, Bob Jones, Todd Bentley prayers for healing, and more.” While you are at it, you could get his $99 
seminar on miracles and healing. Bentley teaches that God guarantees healing and claims that thousands have 
been healed at his meetings (included several bodily resurrections, which is no small thing). In 2008, Bentley led 
the four-month long “Lakeland Outpouring” in central Florida, a supposed miracle revival, with Bentley slamming 
people on the forehead, shoving them, flinging the Holy Spirit, yelling “Blah, blah, blah, blah,” crying out, “Come 
and get some,” and staggering around like a drunk. He kicked an elderly lady in the face, banged a crippled 
woman’s legs on the platform, kneed a man in the stomach, and hit another man so hard that a tooth popped out. 
The show ended with the revelation that the evangelist had destroyed his marriage by an adulterous relationship 
with a female staffer. My friends, God has given us clear instructions in Scripture about healing, and James 5 does 
not describe a raucous “healing crusade.” We believe in divine healing for today, but we don’t believe in 
Pentecostal showmen who pretend to have apostolic healing gifts that they clearly do not possess. See “ I Believe 
in Miracles ”

Church News Notes, July 31, 2020,, 866-295-4143) - Grace Community 
Church in Sun Valley, California, pastored by John MacArthur (age 81), is defying the governor’s new orders 
banning church services. The church met on Sunday, July 26, with a full house. Following is MacArthur’s statement 
on the matter: “Christ is Lord of all. He is the one true head of the church (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18)
. He is also King of kings--sovereign over every earthly authority (1 Timothy 6:15; Revelation 17:14; 19:16). 
Grace Community Church has always stood immovably on those biblical principles. As His people, we are subject 
to His will and commands as revealed in Scripture. ... God has established three institutions within human society: 
the family, the state, and the church. Each institution has a sphere of authority with jurisdictional limits that must 
be respected. A father’s authority is limited to his own family. Church leaders’ authority (which is delegated to 
them by Christ) is limited to church matters. And government is specifically tasked with the oversight and 
protection of civic peace and well-being within the boundaries of a nation or community. God has not granted civic 
rulers authority over the doctrine, practice, or polity of the church. ... When any one of the three institutions 
exceeds the bounds of its jurisdiction it is the duty of the other institutions to curtail that overreach. ... It is 
apparent that those original projections of death were wrong and the virus is nowhere near as dangerous as 
originally feared. Still, roughly forty percent of the year has passed with our church essentially unable to gather in 
a normal way. Pastors’ ability to shepherd their flocks has been severely curtailed. ... Therefore, in response to 
the recent state order requiring churches in California to limit or suspend all meetings indefinitely, we, the pastors 
and elders of Grace Community Church, respectfully inform our civic leaders that they have exceeded their 
legitimate jurisdiction, and faithfulness to Christ prohibits us from observing the restrictions they want to impose 
on our corporate worship services” (John MacArthur, “Christ, not Caesar, Is Head of the Church,” July 24, 2020,
