What Should I Say?
by Sandy Simpson
This DVD is a message based on this booklet.
How do you answer an invitation to attend a meeting where you know nothing about the speaker or what will be done there? What happens if they want to announce the meeting at your church and invite everyone? What do you say to a person who tells you that you don't have the Holy Spirit even though you are a Christian? What should you do if you think something is wrong, or your conscience is bothering you about something that was said or done?  The answer?
 Go to the Scriptures! 
The Bible has all the answers to your questions. This little booklet is an attempt to deal with a few of the typical statements you will hear from people who have become involved in the Third Wave revival movement. By "Third Wave" I am referring to teachers, "prophets" and any meeting associated with the Toronto "Blessing", Brownsville Assemblies of God, Rodney Howard-Browne, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Rod Parsley, Marilyn Hickey, Joyce Meyers, Bethel Church, Lakeland and many others who appear on the Trinity Broadcasting Network and the 700 Club on TV. 
Hopefully the statements and answers in this booklet will set you off on an investigation of your own in the Word. If you need help, and you have access to the Internet, you can visit my web site called "Deception In The Church" that deals with these issues and has the articles mentioned in this booklet.

A little leaven leaven's the whole lump.  If heresy is not addressed and sent out it only actuates further heresy.

Liberty University is listed among the colleges in the Lighthouse Trails contemplative colleges list. It is said to be the largest Christian college in the world. As Lighthouse Trails has contended for many years, when a school starts going down the contemplative path, views on morality, politics, and spiritual matters begin to change, eventually drastically.

Can the Gospel be found in the Stars?
by Mike Oppenheimer, 9/17/15 Let Us Reason

There are many people who have tried to prove this concept and it seems to always become a trend within the church. The Bible strictly forbids looking to the stars for knowledge, learning or answers (Deuteronomy 4:19; Isaiah 47:13). On this alone one should not entertain this concept. Some misuse Romans 1:20 which is referring to God's eternal power and divine nature that are clearly seen, not the gospel. Rom.16:25-26: "Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began but now has been made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures has been made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith --According to my Gospel." "Which was kept secret since the world began" Col. 1:24-27: "...I became a minister according to the stewardship from God which was given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God, the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints." Its is a Mystery hidden from ages Eph. 3:2-5: "by revelation He made known to me the mystery (as I have briefly written already, by which, when you read, you may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ), which in other ages was not made known to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets." The gospel and the application connected to it was hidden, until Christ died and rose again and commissioned the apostles to preach it. The idea of hidden knowledge in the stars (astrology) not found in the Bible sets a dangerous precedent. Can one truly find the gospel by just looking at the stars? Was it made known to all people who can look up in the sky, then  why can no one know the story in the stars without knowing the story first (from the Bible)? To say the gospel is in the stars is to claim the reading of the stars can save someone and teach them what Scripture alone teaches.

You need to "nip it in the bud"
by Sandy Simpson, 9/18/15 ACT Logo 2
I am writing this article to address a subject that I have often observed.  It is the fact that if you do not get the leaven out of your church the leaven will become the leadership.

by Ashley Smith
Reviewed by Paul Proctor

LTRP Note: On September 18th, a new movie will hit the theaters, Captive. The film is the story about Ashley Smith, the young woman who was held captive by an escaped murderer and how she convinced him to give himself up. When the incident happened in 2005, it came out in news reports that the woman had read excerpts from The Purpose Driven Life to her captor. Free-lance journalist Paul Proctor wrote three stories about this that year. Because the movie is coming out, we decided to re-post these insightful articles by Paul Proctor (two of the articles are links below the first article). We agree with Proctor, who said while he was "thrilled that Ashley escaped with her life and that no one else was killed," he was sorry to see the incident turned into a marketing extravaganza for Rick Warren and The Purpose Driven Life. No doubt, the new movie will be another big plug for "America's Pastor" and his "New" Spirituality-promoting Purpose Driven movement.
