Marks Of False Religion
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on this article.

Colossians 2:8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.

In context Paul is especially addressing, though perhaps not to the exclusion of other false religion, what had become the false religion of the Pharisees and Jewish leadership.  There were many Jewish so-called "Christians" making the rounds among the fledgling early churches who were trying to get the Gentiles to come under the Law from which Christ had purchased their freedom.  John Gill states this case well in his commentary.

Featured Discernment Ministry 
Moriel Ministries
Moriel Ministries is an international multi-faceted ministry of Jewish and non-Jewish regenerate believers one in Jesus the Messiah.

Moriel is committed to the evangelization beginning with The Jews but also of people of other faiths including Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism,  and theologically deviant expressions of Christendom including Roman Catholicism (which we view as aberrational much as we deem Talmudic Judaism to be likewise largely unscriptural). To this end Moriel plants churches, and operates missions especially among impoverished children in the Third World. While mainly rejecting the later midrashic writings of the rabbis, Moriel is also a teaching ministry seeking to exegetically interpret scripture with the Judeo-Christian hermeneutic of the apostolic  church including the midrashic exegesis used by Jesus and Paul (midrash is a term found multiple times in the Tenak or Old Testament).

Lastly, Moriel is active in the area of discernment withstanding the popular apostasy in the contemporary church that The Word of God warns would precede the return of Jesus. We remain firmly aligned to the conviction that contemporary events in The Middle East , Europe, and in the church make the present time in history different from other eras when people thought it was the last days. We affirm the belief that Jesus is coming again and prophecy of His return is radically being fulfilled increasingly.

by N. T. Wright Think On These Things
Reviewed by Gary Gilley

Wright's gospel is the familiar "already/not yet" view which teaches that the kingdom is now (but even more is coming) concept. The biblical gospel of reconciliation is given a nod but the "whole" gospel is working with the Lord to transform this planet and return it to its original glory. The full gospel then becomes not only the biblical gospel but is also combined with the social gospel of the world's transformation through the instrumentality of believers prior to the return of Christ. It should be noted that Wright does not really engage with the important biblical texts dealing with the gospel. Simply Good News is not an exegesis of Scripture. It is an understanding of the purposes of God through the lens of a particular amillennial/postmillennial understanding of the kingdom of God. This is a dangerous book.

A Brief Review Of The Theological Paper Of Daniel R. Jennings Entitled "Except For Fornication"
by James Jacob Prasch, 7/14/15 Moriel Ministries

In his public paper freely available on the Internet, Daniel R. Jennings, (without doubt a sincere and genuine brother in Christ) represents himself as one formerly holding to the doctrinal belief that adultery provided scriptural grounds for divorce based on the teaching of Jesus in Matthew's Gospel, (Matthew 5:31-32 & Matthew 19: 3-12) but that based on further primarily linguistic study, he now maintains that this is not the case and that the only New Testament grounds for divorce is a case of pre-marital fornication by a wife who deceitfully misrepresents herself as a virgin.

Chrislam Exposed: The Seductive Lie of a Common God Between Christianity and Islam (CD)
at Crosstalk Crosstalk America
Host : Gordon Morris
Guest:  Sharam Hadian, 7/15/15

Shahram Hadian was born in Iran to a Muslim family. When he was 7 years old, his family came to America to escape an oppressive Islamic regime. He eventually experienced a transformational life change when he committed his life to Jesus Christ. This not only changed his destiny for eternity, it also changed his situation with his family and Islamic culture as he immediately began to face persecution and disapproval from his family and from the Islamic community. He is now considered to be an apostate and according to the dictates of the Qur'an, deserves to be killed with no repercussions to those who might do so. Shahram is now dedicated to reaching out and speaking out to let people know about the deception of Islam, its true goal that many are not aware of and the threat of Shariah which is the heart of Islam. He spoke about these things at the VCY America rally that took place in September. In the first of this two-part series dealing with Islam and how it's affecting Christianity, Shahram began by noting there is no political correctness in the Bible, so as churches preach truth and love, they need to define terms such as tolerance and love. This involves discussing the truth about whether or not Christians and Muslims worship the same God. This brings up a number of questions that Shahram's presentation tackles: --Is the God of the Bible the same as the Allah of Islam? --Can you be both a Christian and a Muslim at the same time? --Should Christians be reaching out to Muslims seeking spiritual reconciliation? --Should Christians and Muslims be holding joint services? --Are the Bible and the Qur'an equal? --Should we merge both religions into one called "Chrislam"? According to Shahram, Islam denies that Jesus is God, that he's the Son of God and that he's come in the flesh. This is the message of an antichrist spirit. Spreading this message is not only what Islam does, it's what Islam was born to do and if anyone says anything different, they are either ignorant of the ideology of Islam or they're lying.  Shahram also refutes the following points that are foundational to "Chrislam." --There's a common word among Christians and Muslims. --Muslims have a common love of God and neighbor with Christians. 

Order Part 1 & Part 2. 
by E. S. Williams Web Truth
Reviewed by WebTruth

"The book contains three chapters dedicated to the leaders of New Calvinism, Tim Keller, John Piper, and Mark Driscoll, before two chapters on the groups in the UK that have embraced the philosophy. It would not be an understatement to say that the chapter on Keller is alarming, and that on Driscoll shocking. As Williams states, 'Keller's supreme "salvation" is about saving the world from injustice and oppression, while the Gospel of salvation from sin is a means to that end'. On Driscoll, the author quotes extensively from his books and sermons, the content of which is, at times, blasphemous. Whilst those familiar with the opposing forces in first-century Christianity may not find anything particularly new, it is of deep concern that there should be well-known evangelicals who are prepared to be identified with such teaching and practice in the USA and the UK.
