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. I can assure you it is not. Please watch the entire video.

The Warning Christians Critically Need: Bethel, New Age, and the New Apostolic Reformation.


The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) is a popular and fast-growing new movement of Christians who emphasize signs and wonders and teach that God is giving a new revelation through new apostles and prophets. But is this biblical Christianity? This stuff used to be fringe. Now it's probably in your church in some way. Why is this dangerous, and how can you spot it? I talk with Holly Pivec and Doug Geivett, the authors of Counterfeit Kingdom, about this concerning movement.

Help Your Kids Think Critically

I got the great privilege to interview Elizabeth Urbanowicz, the founder of Foundation Worldview, about the tools she and her team have created to teach our kids critical thinking and life skills. I LOVE this stuff! Foundation Worldview is a Comparative Worldview Curriculum for kids and teens. Several years into Elizabeth's teaching experience, she realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. So she did something about it! I ask her about this curriculum, discuss my personal interest in it, ask about parents that might feel discouraged, and overall how and why it's important to teach our kids -now more than ever!- about truth and critical thinking.

Is it Harmful to Not Affirm Someone's Chosen Identity?

Otherkin, gender fluid, Trans-species, transgender... and everything in between. A question that people have asked me about this is… so what? Who is this hurting? People just live their lives and are just doing what makes them happy. Why do I care to speak out against something like this when people are just living their truth? And I have to say that this is a fair question. If we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize what's true. I address this and more in this video.

If There is no Free Speech, There is no Real Thought

We're finding more and more people embracing blatant lies thinking it's the high moral ground. As language becomes less expressive, minds are more easily controlled. Apathy makes people prefer the false peace of conformity to the tensions of liberty. Whatever and whoever has the power can pressure you into believing their version of truth.... even if they're flat-out lies. Anyone who opposes this is viewed as backward and ignorant. We live in a world where there is more and more intense social pressure to accept that there is no such thing as objective truth. There's only power. Whoever holds the power decides what is true and false. The value of truth claims depends on who's making them. More and more people are knowingly believing lies out of fear of opposing them.

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.

How Did Evangelicalism Turn into a Circus… Literally?

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

Evangelical Deep State Misleading Christians

In an interview with The New American magazine's Senior Editor Alex Newman, prominent Southern Baptist evangelist Thomas Littleton exposes the "Evangelical Deep State" and its nefarious efforts to mislead the Church and corrupt even conservative denominations. Among other concerns, he points to the normalization of homosexuality, the spread of support for "social justice" heresies, the joining together with the Marxist "Black Lives Matter" movement, and more. But people are waking up, he said. 🇺🇸 The New American:
