Dear Friends,


Ecumenism and interfaith coalitions dominate the scene today even though, by Biblical definition, they are a sign of Apostasy in the churches.

Titus 1:9 He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.

Understanding The Dominion Theology Of Christian Reconstructionists And The New Apostolic Reformation

by Thomas Ice, 1988

NOTE: This is an article I wrote about Dominion Theology in May 1988.  It is interesting to see how things have progressed twenty-five years later.  Back then these movements were just beginning to influence each other.  Now we see these ideas continuing to gain strength in our own day.


Victoria Osteen Ripped for Telling Church 'Just Do Good For Your Own Self'; Worship Is Not for God, 'You're Doing it for Yourself'

by Leonardo Blair, Christian Post, 8/31/14

Victoria Osteen, wife of megachurch preacher and New York Times bestselling author Joel Osteen, is now facing withering criticism online for a viral video clip in which she is shown telling congregants at Lakewood Church that obedience, worship and church attendance is not for God but themselves.

Pope: "Don't Proselytize to be Happy"

by Mike Gendron, 9/1/14

In an interview published by the Argentine Weekly "Viva", the pope listed his Top 10 Secrets for Happiness. One of them was quite shocking in view of the Great Commission given to the church by our Lord Jesus Christ. Pope Francis disagrees with the true Head of the Church in saying that we should not proselytize. He said we should respect others' beliefs because "the worst thing of all is religious proselytism, which paralyzes." The word "proselytize" means to try to convert somebody to a religious faith. The pope said "the church grows by attraction, not proselytizing."

"Stage Managed" Ecumenism

by Orrell Steinkamp The Plumbliine
The Plumbline, Volume 19, No. 4
July/August 2014

Unbelievable and largely unseen ecumenical coalitions and ad hoc alliances are forming. These alliances are being forged by a small cadre of seeker-driven mega church celebrity pastors/authors. These vision-casting celebrities are in effect acting as power brokers in forming ecumenical coalitions. As with all coalitions these players are attempting to gain something for themselves and their "ministries" and the expanding of their personal reputations. They are willing to exchange their platforms and pulpits with other celebrities of like class and clout. These platform exchanges often cross boundaries into false and even heretical territory. Consequently, these celebrities become an endorsement of false teaching to the masses of low information evangelicals who are fans of these various Christian celebrities. The opportunity for these maneuvers is that classical evangelicalism as a theologically descriptive word is becoming near meaningless. Gregory Thornbury, now president of Kings College states: "the evangelicalism I signed up for is gone forever....In fact many leading theologians today see evangelicalism as a relic of a by gone era." (Thornbury, Recovering Classic Evangelicalism, Crossway, 2013, pp. 223)  The vacuum created by the disappearance of classical evangelicalism, unfortunately has been filled by TV ministries, bookstores, stadiums rallies, mega churches and extended mega church campuses and their media promotions.
