Replacement Theology On Steroids
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

So, as you can see, the root of this teaching is that Israel no longer holds the distinction of being the tree from which the Root of David (Jesus-Rev. 5:5, 22:16) came.  They are no longer the "natural branches" (Israel-Rom. 11:21) on to which Gentile Christianity (the wild shoots-Rom. 11:17 or wild branches-Rom. 11:24) are grafted in (Rom. 11:17-24).  According to Replacement Theology, Christianity has now become its own branch apart from Israel (the natural branch) that produced the Root and all the promises of the Bible to Israel have been taken away from them and given to the Gentile Church.  This is why you hear so many false teachers taking verses out of context from the Old Testament and willy-nilly applying them to the Gentile Church.  This methodology has been going on for decades in liberal churches and has been popularized by many false teachers on TV. But the fact is that Replacement Theology is utter false doctrine.  It denies promises made to Israel, some of which have already been fulfilled and some which are yet to come to fruition. But when you add the fact that the Inclusivist WCGIP proponents are now saying that God planted hundreds of different trees, cultures all over the world, that are not connected to the natural branch, tree and Root, you have what can only be termed Replacement Theology on steroids!

Those Who Do Not Lead Christians to Maturity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

The Scriptural definition of maturity is to learn to discern truth from error so that the Christian will no longer be double minded, blown about by every wind of teaching and by the schemes of crafty people.  But the problem today is that so few Christian teachers are feeding their flock's solid food.  They are serving up milk and, because of that, people are starving. Yet they often don't even know they have been on a starvation diet.  Amos 8:11 "The days are coming," declares the Sovereign Lord, "when I will send a famine through the land -  not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord."

"... and all liars"
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

Lying is a problem for all people (Ps. 116:11).  We are all sinners (Rom. 3:23).  Those of us who are Christians are "sinners saved by grace" (Eph. 2:8) indwelt by the Holy Spirit in our "new self" (Col. 3:10). But we still live in our "old self" which we must "put off" (Eph. 4:20-25) by taking up our cross daily and following Christ (Luke 9:23).  The difference between unbelievers and those who are truly born again is that believers no longer "practice sin" (1 John 3:9, see my Bible study on 1 John!)  They have the indwelling Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:11) who convicts them when they lie (John 16:8). True believers then repent (1 John 1:9) and go on to "practice righteousness" (1 John 2:29) with the Lord's help.  The unregenerate, the false brothers, or those who have fallen away (Gal. 5:4, Mark 4:17), practice lying.  They practice a lifestyle of lying because their consciences are seared (1 Tim. 4:2) and the Holy Spirit, when convicting them, cannot break through the hardness of their unrepentant hearts (Eph. 4:17-19, Heb. 3:13).

Four Books That the Enemy Has Used To Corrupt Christianity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

The four books that have changed the church by giving an introduction to the false teachings of the New Apostolic/Latter Rain (NAR), the Emerging Church/Contemplative/Catholic Mysticism (EC), pragmatic Church Growth (CG) methodologies of C. Peter Wagner, Robert Schuller and Peter Drucker, and the teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People (WCGIP) are as follows:

Surprised by the Power of the Spirit by Jack Deer, Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster, Purpose Driven Church by Rick Warren & Etnerity In Their Hearts by Don Richardson.

 These four books were widely read by Christians from virtually every denominational background before their ramifications and the movements they would spawn were known.  They lay error alongside truth so were considered not to be a threat to churches.  Therefore these books then became part of the consciousness of many Christians and churches, thereby laying the basis for the introduction of the modern day false teachings of the NAR, EC, CG and WCGIP that have become part of the landscape of Christendom today.

Night Marchers and UFOs on the Big Island 
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

With the resurgence of the old religion of Hawaii and the continual invocation of Pelé and other "deities" for years in the secular culture and even in churches with regards to worshipping 'Io, is it any wonder that those beings are beginning to manifest again?  In a story called "Night Marchers" on the Kawaihae site and in a YouTube video on the same subject, eyewitnesses claim all kinds of sightings that they think are the warriors, ancestors and demi-gods of Hawaii coming back.  Interestingly the first book the Hawaiian Heritage site recommends in its "Suggested Reading" list is "Perpetuated in Righteousness" by Daniel Kikawa that we reviewed in our book "Idolatry In Their Hearts" by Sandy Simpson and Mike Oppenheimer. Since Kikawa claims that 'Io is the True God and one that the Hawaiians worshipped in secret, we have to wonder if Kikawa also thinks 'Io is showing up in these night marches? Since YWAM, Aloha Ke Akua and Hilo New Hope participated in worshipping 'Io at the "edge of Hale-ma'uma'u Crater" it sounds like they have all been inviting the old "gods" to return to Hawaii.

"They Will Believe 
The Lie"
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I am doing a Bible study right now on what I would call "renewing our minds".  It is based on this verse:

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.

The only way to renew our minds is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, confess our sins, and be saved, then to study the written Word and allow the indwelling Holy Spirit to teach us.  Our minds are corrupted by virtue of the sin nature and what we have learned in life because our filters are off. I gave an illustration of straining coconut to make coconut milk.  If you use a 1 inch screen everything will pass through.  Even if you use a quarter inch screen you will get mostly coconut meat in your milk.  You have to use a fine screen in order to separate the milk from the leftover.  Our filters are off and the first thing God begins to do is correct our worldview, because if your worldview is off you will not understand God's reality.  We need to learn to see things from His perspective.  This is why I started this study by going back to an original problem.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

This has always been an interesting passage to me for a few different reasons.  What is "the lie" that is talked about here in verse 9 and 11?  What are the ways that "wickedness deceives those who are perishing" and how long has this been going on or does this only begin to happen at the coming of the lawless one?  In what way does "the lie" cause those who do not believe the truth to "delight in wickedness"?

Deceiving The Nations!
4-DVD Series

Critical Missiological Issue!

The "Indigenous People's" (IPM) or "First Nations" movement is an unbiblical movement teaching heresies and doctrines of demons. It is being spread worldwide by YWAM, Don Richardson, John Dawson, Richard Twiss, Terry LeBlanc, Daniel Kikawa and many other adherents.  The IPM or World Christian Gathering On Indigenous People is full of the false teachings of the Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Word-Faith, Dominionism, Latter Rain and many other false theological systems.  But it does have it's own distinctives that are driven by the works of Daniel Kikawa, Richard Twiss, and Don Richardson in particular.  They are teaching Christians to "redeem" their cultures by worshipping their former gods, pretending they are YHWH.

"Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article: "Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura

There are a number of the leadership of the Emerging Church (EC) who do not believe that the Bible is the highest authority for the Christian faith.  Most do not believe that the Bible is inerrant in the original manuscripts and many do not acknowledge that the Bible is our highest revelation.  Yet this is a core doctrine over which true believers and false brethren must separate. Those who try to poke holes in Sola Scriptura make excuses like (1) we need to reinterpret the Bible through the lens of postmodern culture and religion (2) the Bible never uses the words "Sola Scriptura" therefore it is not a Biblical concept (3) there is new revelation for the church through the Holy Spirit apart from what is written and the precepts of the Bible and (4) the Bible just doesn't address our postmodern situation therefore we cannot rely on it for the truth and answers for our problems today.  I will prove that all the above arguments, and more, from EC leaders and others is exactly what they are teaching.  I will give you quotes from their teachings, videos and books. The postmodern church and its "movements" are abandoning Sola Scriptura in their rush to be like the Roman Catholic Church, which takes its authority from a mix of Scripture and tradition.

"As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, "does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honored with EQUAL sentiments of devotion and reverence." (Roman Catholic Catechism, Given October 11, 1992, the thirtieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, in the fourteenth year of my Pontificate. Page 31).

Updated DVD!
The Question Of Dominion
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article: The Question Of Dominion.

I am writing this article as an apologetic against the Third Wave, Latter Rain, Word of Faith and Reformed Theology teachings that the Church is to rise up and take over the systems of government, businesses and every other aspect of life. "See, the problem is, is that Satan has had too much of his way in our society because he has a government!  And the only way to overthrow a government is with a government.  It won't happen otherwise.  So therefore the government of the church has to get into place in the extended church just like we do have it very well in place, we haven't reached our goal yet ..."  (Transcript of C. Peter Wagner, Arise Prophetic Conference, Gateway Church, San Jose, CA, 10-10-2004) Wagner has substituted the "government of the church" for the coming government of Jesus Christ in the Millennial Kingdom.  Wagner is "Kingdom Now" while the Bible teaches "Kingdom Come". What I wanted to do with this article is put the issue of dominion to rest by studying the definition the Bible gives to dominion and ruling authority.  When we look at the subject we can easily ascertain what is going on today and what God requires of the Church.

Shepherd Or Hireling?
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on the article: "Shepherd Or Hireling?"

The Bible lays out the definitions of both an overseer (under shepherd) and a hireling.  John 10:11-13  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. (KJV)  1 Tim. 3:1-3   Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. (NIV)  Titus 1:7-13  Since an overseer is entrusted with God's work, he must be blameless, not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. 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. For there are many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach - and that for the sake of dishonest gain. Even one of their own prophets has said, "Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons." This testimony is true. Therefore, rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith. (NIV) A hireling does not really care about being a watchman, but is more concerned with protecting his reputation, position and income.  A true watchman will guard the flock against wolves from within (Acts 20:30) and without (Acts 20:29) no matter the cost to his reputation, position or income. Following is a little quiz you can take to see if you are a true Biblical under shepherd as a leader in your church, are becoming a hireling, or are one now.

Testing Music In The Church
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on these articles: Testing Music In The Church, Testing Music In The Church-Part 2, and Worship Song Ratings.

Too many churches today are allowing music to be used in their services that is not glorifying to the Lord and can actually be a hindrance to the teaching of sound doctrine. Pastors and leaders should be using their leadership role to test what is being played and sung in their churches. Though some are quick to test preaching and teaching from their pulpits, many ignore the music being used in the same services. This is a tragic mistake. Music is a powerful medium. It is something that effects deeply the body, mind and emotions. It is a proven fact that music often stays with a person far longer than what is taught or preached. Songs roam around in our heads, especially if the melody appeals to us. What is often overlooked is the serious impression music makes on people, and the teaching they are getting over and over again as they allow the song to repeat in their minds and on their lips. Music teaches things much more subtly yet sometimes far more effectively. That's why the lyrical content of music in the church, as well as its effect on the spiritual lives of those who perform and listen, should be vigorously examined by the leaders of the church.  This is a 2-DVD set.

Examine Yourselves & Hold On!
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on the articles "Examine Yourself To See If You Are In The Faith" and "Hold On!"

2 Cor. 13:5  Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.
Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you - unless, of course, you fail the test?

People who call themselves followers of Christ or "Christians" and claim they are born again must believe certain things.  If they do not then they fail the test of faith.  They can claim they are born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail the test of faith there is no eternal security.  Only God knows who will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2).  God did not make an arbitrary judgment about who would be saved and who would not.  His Spirit is given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ.  We are not God and we do not have His omniscience.  Therefore, according to Paul, we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have been opened to the Truth.  I am not saying we do not have assurance of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is always the Biblical criteria. Those who would be Bible teachers must teach according to the whole counsel of God's Word.  Let me be clear. There is only one way to salvation.  That is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  I will deal with a few of those issues following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.

"Blasphemizing" The Bible
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I am going to go over an article I wrote back in 2006 in preparation for the book I wrote with Mike Oppenheimer called 'Idolatry in Their Hearts'.  This book is an apologetic against the false teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People movement, the Emerging Church and the New Apostolic Reformation which got their ideas from the book "Eternity in Their Hearts" by Don Richardson.  At the time that book came out no one really saw the dangerous ideas Richardson was promoting.  All they would have had to do was look at the two subtitles of that book to understand the implications.  The first subtitle in the 1981 edition read: The Untold Story of Christianity among Folk Religions of Ancient People.  Those who read this book found some interesting cross-cultural ideas but apparently missed the false premise of the book starting with the subtitle. How could Christianity be "among folk religions" where the Gospel had not been preached (Rom. 10:14-15)? At that time Christians who read the book were apparently satisfied that, though there was some questionable material present, it made for an interesting discussion on how to do cross-cultural ministry. The subtitle it has today, which was first published in 1984, is as follows: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds of Cultures Throughout the World.  This should have been a red flag for many Christians but then, who reads subtitles?  But how could the "One True God" be known to Gentiles who did "not know God".

Resources For Pastors
including
"Good English Bible Translations"
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I was talking with a pastor after a Wednesday night service and he mentioned that I said I had done an article comparing English Bible translations.  He called me up later and asked me to come back and present the contents of that article I sent out in about 2002 to my mailing list for the Pacific Waves Newsletter which, unfortunately, I can no longer afford to publish and mail.  However an archive of past issues of that newsletter can be found here. In that article I detailed a number of good and bad resources for pastors including Bible translations, concordances, commentaries, Bible dictionaries, etc.  I present an edited version of part of that article on this DVD, particularly dealing with English Translations of the Bible.  Translation is a very detailed endeavor and should only be undertaken by those with a proper education in that subject and a sound doctrinal background.  I read a few books on that subject and it helped me understand the complexities involved.  Hebrew is a rich language so it is hard to distill one Hebrew word down to one English word.  Greek is a very technical language and it is also not easy to translate.  This is why it is imperative to use the good English translations out there for comparison along with a good concordance and Bible dictionary.

A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS
Kingdom Now or Kingdom Come?
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today. Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is being promoted all over the place.  I am warning Christians that they need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom".

From Church To Emerging Church DVD Series
by Sandy Simpson
The issue of the Emerging Church and it's introduction into many churches and mission organizations has reached a critical point.  Many do not undersand what is being leavened into churches by the EC leadership.  Many would be shocked to know their belief systems involve Universalism, New Age, defense of postmodernism, Interfaithism, and many other false doctrines.  In order to reach out to this generation the EC leadership is proposing a whole new "map" to deal with what they perceive is a lack of understanding on the part of the churches on how to communicate.  EC proponants believe the "scripture" for today is evolving and must change in order to reach postmoderns.

Idolatry In Their Hearts
Landmark Book!
by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer
Does having eternity in your heart mean that you know God and are His child? Could Gentile cultures understand the Gospel from the stars? Did God create man's cultures? Has God always been in the process of redeeming cultures from the time of Babel by placing in them a true revelation of Himself? Is there the worship of YHWH in all cultures and religions through the names of supreme beings?  Have all cultures always had a way to make things right between them and God? These questions and many more are answered in this book that addresses the false teachings of The New Apostolic Reformation regarding missiological methods as being carried out by many agencies including the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People, YWAM, and many Bible societies.

Lessons In Forgiveness
Great Study!
by Sandy Simpson

Through the years I have been presented with many opportunities to forgive. Sometimes the situation was so severe that it took me some time to forgive and start the process of healing for myself, and eventually for others. I learned that a Christian needs to forgive other people even if they have not repented of their sins. That can be really hard if we let it be hard. But if we give our burdens over to the Lord, He will carry them and that frees us up to treat other people with love, compassion, and be in the right frame of mind and heart to set them up for reconciliation with Jesus Christ. That does not mean we tolerate their sin. We simply forgive them for what they have done to us, whether perceived or real, and move on to looking for ways to redeem them. We can then present to them the "truth in love" even when we have to rebuke them.

Here is a perfect example of why no one should sit under the teaching of this false prophet and liar. The original text of the letter by Rev. John Kilpatrick of Brownsville AOG that is offered as a public apology to Hank Hanegraaff for cursing him and his ministry is offered here with my comments as well as quotes from his original message.

Another Story Is Exposed To The Light by Sandy Simpson, 1997
"Another Veil Is Torn In Two" is an article about an event that took place at a Toronto "Blessing" type church in Houston that has been passed around since October 1996. What I would like to do is quote from the article and give you my comments in bold as we go along. There are some factors involved in this "sign and wonder" that make it very hard for me to believe that this is a sign from God."

Unbiblical Doctrines, Teachings and Phenomena of the Third Wave Counterfeit Revival Movement compiled by Sandy Simpson, 1997
A document compiled from a few sources to give Christians a resource to cut through the issues involved in the "counterfeit" revival. This paper includes a short list of unbiblical doctrines, teachings and phenomena observed and documented in the Toronto "Blessing"/Pensocola "Outpouring" movement. Please refer to the document called "Influence Links Of The Third Wave Movement" for a more comprehensive list of the heretical doctrines of the Third Wave. This paper also features guiding principles on how to determine unbiblical doctrines, whether or not we are to test and judge as Christians, and practical guidelines on how to counsel people who have had emotional, physical and spiritual damage from this movement or have been demonized as a result of being "slain in the spirit" or at the "laying on of hands".

Scriptures That Confirm That Christians Can Be Demonized by Sandy Simpson, 1997
Many Bible references to Jews and Christians who were demonized or warned of demonization. This supports the theory that many of the manifestations evident in the "counterfeit" revivals may well be of satanic origin.

John Kilpatrick Of Brownsville AOG, Pensacola, FL Is Now OFFICIALLY A False Prophet!by Sandy Simpson, 1997
July 4, 1997 has come and gone and Hank Hanegraaff is still alive and his ministry is doing fine. Here is how Hanegraaff responded to this ugly false prophesy. Brothers and sisters in Christ -- now is the time to decide. For those of you attending Brownsville "Outpouring" meetings in Pensacola ... are you going to continue to willingly sit under the teaching and prophesy of this man in this church or allow people under your accountability to do so? Is the Assemblies of God going to take scripturally appropriate action in this matter? Here is their official response when asked recently to comment on the Pensocola "Outpouring" in a letter from Thomas E. Trask, General Superintendant of the Assemblies Of God (this letter is no longer available.  It was orginally located at: http://www.pentecostal-issues.org/journal/brownsville/general.htm) Here is another one in support of Brownsville from Trask. What about the rest of the false teaching and prophesy of this "counterfeit" revival movement? Check out my compilation of quotes in an article called "By Your Words" - Quotes From Third Wave Leaders" for just a small dose of the false teaching from the leaders of this movement. It's time to take a stand on this matter, fellow Christians! Time to be counted. No more wishy-washy "well, there are good and bad things in this movement but it's basically good" or "I'd rather see the devil and flesh manifested in church than nothing discernable happening at all". This is not an issue that can be "balanced" away by a good old American sense of "fair play". We as Christians are to hold to the objective truth of God's Word, or else we cannot call ourselves Christians. It's time for the true body of Christ to be heard on this matter. Where is the outcry? Where is the indignation that this man has dared to make false prophesies about the demise of a fellow Christian and attribute them to a conversation he had with God Almighty? Has the Christian community been silenced in fear of being labeled "mockers" by Steve Hill in his book "The God Mockers" when, in fact, all Christians should hold to and defend sound doctrine as did the Bereans when they tested what was being taught to them? Where is the disgust at the fact that Kilpatrick made a deceitful apology denying that he prophesied and published it all over the Internet? Where is the outrage that he now continues to spread false stories in his church about Hank Hanegraaff? Where is the ire of God's people when this man dared to presume to order God around by speaking false "proclamations" "into God's ears"? What is your response, people of God? We had better start cleaning house before thousands of children and youth are exposed to the ugly manifestations, deceitful testimonies, false teaching and false prophesy of this "counterfeit" revival movement!

Reinhard Bonnke - Prophesy Of The False Prophet by Sandy Simpson, 1997
There is a possible, yet somewhat tenuous connection between Lord Maitreya and the "counterfeit" revival. The connection hinges on the following prophesy by evangelist and healer, Reinhard Bonnke, who has been doing crusades in Africa for quite some time. Bonnke was the evangelist in Uhuru park in Nairobi who prophesied on a Thursday, three days before Maitreya's appearance in a Muslim Village, Kawangware, Nairobi, ... that God had, on Thursday, informed him that the Nairobi Muslim citizens would "experience the presence of Jesus and great miracles on Saturday..." It is interesting that Rodney Howard-Browne got his "anointing" from Bonnke. Howard-Browne then laid hands on most of the leaders of the current "counterfeit" revival. If this chain is accurate, this casts a very disturbing light on the reasons for all the mind numbing, eastern-religion-type tactics of this movement. This may indeed be part of an overall plan to seduce Christians to receive the False Prophet when he declares himself.

Maiterya's New Logo Symbol by Sandy Simpson, 1997
This is purportatdly Maitreya's new logo. Here's the animated version.You will notice that it can be seen as having 666 elements. The basic six-pointed star is made up of two pyramids. On each six point are six logos. The first seal is the I-Ching/yin-yang as the center for a lotus flower with an embedded swastika. This is the same as the center seal. The second seal is a star of David of Israel. The third seal is the cross of Christianity, the fourth seal is the cresent moon of Islam with an I-Ching in the middle of the star. The fifth seal is the nine-pointed star of Baha'i. The sixth seal is allegedly the seal of the "Elects" which is basically a star of David with a rising sun embedded with a swastika. You will notice that he I-Ching symbol itself is made up of six elements. The lotus flower petal represents the seventh level of "chakra" called the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra where a person allegedly becomes one with the universe. "The seventh trumpet is representative of the event when the Aquarian experiences the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra activation." On the day of declaration Maitreya will likely announce himself with the blast of a "shofar", the Jewish "Jubilee" trumpet, signaling the year of Jubilee 2000. At the blast of this "shofar", all who have been initiated into Kundalini-type experiences and manifestations, such as Hindu mystics, Tibetan monks, channelers, mediums, witches, witch doctors, voodoo preists, satanists, transcendental meditationists, "counterfeit" revivalists and many others will have their highest "chakra", the Soma/Sahasrara Chakra, "activated" and will hear Maitreya speaking to them in unison in their minds. When they realize that people from many religions are hearing the same thing, they will assume that the "anointing" is on "all men" and that Christ has returned to earth. This will unify them together as the world church under Maitreya, the False Prophet. This will likely usher in the Tribulation.

The Battle of the Hinnites by Sandy Simpson, 1998
"The man of iniquity is about to be revealed. False teachers like Benny Hinn are merely setting the stage for the final apostasy that is coming. All the world's religions will join together in the "anointing" that is not of the Holy Spirit, and have one big millennium party. The sad thing is that, over the shoulder of the Third Wave, even while they are fiddling their lives away, the rest of the world will be crashing and burning in sin and doomed to ultimate damnation."

Benny Hinn Claims "A Dead Man Raised" In Ghana by Sandy Simpson, 1998
Here's an e-mail we recently received about Benny Hinn's appearance in Ghana, where he claims a dead man was raised from the dead.  Upon closer inspection, it never happened.

The Dangers Of The Alpha Course by Sandy Simpson, 1998
"The Alpha Course, though teaching some truth, also lays truth alongside error.  The wooing of people using the gospel message, only to later enslave them in ritualism, works salvation, and occult manifestations is one of the great deceptions of our time.  One of the cleverest ploys of the enemy in our day is to allow "unprincipled" men to use the salvation message as an enticment to unsuspecting and untrained people, thereby enabling "the devil a foothold" for fleshly manifestations and temptations in their lives.  The men who designed this course are laying error alongside truth, introducing error secretly ("pareisaxousinin" in Greek) the result of which will ruin the faith of the believer in the end.  The Bible says of this process: "But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves." (2 Pet. 2:1) Beware of the Alpha Course!" Read this article also by Chris Hand.

Ecumenism - Where Do You Draw The Line? by Sandy Simpson, 1998
"This is a short essay to illustrate just how unbiblical, subjective and relativistic Ecumenism really is.  Ecumenism starts innocently enough. Is begins with a tolerant perspective of other denominations.  Then it moves on to cults.  Finally it ends in an acceptance of other religions, evolving into what is called "Inter-Faith".

Pacific Revival Center - Wolves Among The Flock by Sandy Simpson, 1998
"There is a church that is trying desperately to ingratiate itself with the rest of the body of Christ on Guam.  This article is a warning that they are hiding behind the fact that they "went out from us" long ago (1 Jn. 2:19).  The church is affiliated with the UPCI (United Pentecostal Church International).  It has recently changed its name to Pacific Revival Center.  They have managed to get their church prominently displayed in the Pacific Daily News in the Lifestyle section, have advertised "miracle" and "revival" meetings at which unseemly pleas for money were made, and have started a semi-regular "Worship & Praise" event that they are inviting all churches on Guam to participate in."

Kenneth Copeland Leads Believers In A Dangerous Prayer Of Salvation by Sandy Simpson, 1998
"The Kenneth Copeland Ministries web site (would Paul have named a ministry after himself?) has a page called "A Prayer For Salvation And Baptism In The Holy Spirit".   This is a classic study on how NOT to preach the gospel, which I will detail line for line."

Youth Alive Alert! by Sandy Simpson, 1998
An alert to churches, particularly in Micronesia, about a group called Youth Alive that is a ministry of the A/G and has close ties to the Third Wave church Brownsville A/G. UPDATE!  The Youth Alive N.S.W. concert was held and there were no wierd manifestations, at least not in the main auditorium!  We praise the Lord that our alert caused this Brownsville A/G affiliated group to hold itself back from doing what they intend to do sooner or later ... give a gnostic fleshly "impartation" to our youth in Guam and Micronesia.  Our youth have been protected for the time being.  However, pastors and youth leaders need to be aware that this is the introductory show.  Youth Alive clubs in schools and more events are scheduled.  The false doctrines of the Third Wave out of Brownsville, Toronto, RHEMA, Rodney Howard-Browne and Benny Hinn will manifest themselves more fully as time goes by.  Sound doctrine is not important to people in the Third Wave.  This is because the Word is not their final authority.

Brownsville Revival School Of Ministry - Occult Teachings & Practices by Sandy Simpson, 1998
"Here is an e-mail of a first hand account of a phone conversation with a teacher at the Brownsville "School Of Ministry" regarding Brownsville's sale and use of shofars in "spiritual warfare".  If there are any of you that still have any doubt that what is being taught at Brownsville A/G is outright heresy and occult in nature, this should put that issue to rest."

Rebuttal To The Defense Of The Term "Christian Hedonism" by Sandy Simpson, DITC, 1998
This is a paper about the term "Christian hedonism" which author John Piper is trying to coin in books such as "Desiring God" and "Future Grace".  Though there is no doubt good material in the books, there is a danger here.  This danger flows into the gnostic revivals out of RHEMA, Toronto and Brownsville.  I believe these books and their message will be, and in fact are being, taken the wrong way.  The term "Christian hedonism" is an oxymoron using the standard dictionary definitions of both "Christianity" and "hedonism".  "The following is a summary of John Piper's use of the term "Christian hedonism".  I will rebut each item as they appear in his official defense of the term "Christian hedonism".

Obedience To God (Uzzah's Disobedience) by Sandy Simpson, 1998
"The first obedience we should show is confessing our sins, believing on the Lord Jesus Christ for our salvation, and making Him the Lord of our life. The second obedience is to serve Him the way He wants us to serve Him. Worship without obedience is futile. In fact it makes the Lord angry. Getting excited and zealous for the Lord without obedience to God by living in accordance with His law and the doctrine of Scripture is futile and meaningless, and in fact, dangerous. There's a famous hymn that says it all: "When we walk with the Lord, in the light of His Word, what a glory He sheds on our way! While we do His good will, He abides with us still, and with all who will trust and obey. Trust and obey, for there's no other way, to be happy in Jesus. but to trust and obey."

Jesus Cares For All Your Needs by Sandy Simpson, 1998
One of the main things that Jesus is... is compassionate. He cares for His people. He was compassionate then and He is still compassionate today. Jesus came and saw the needs of the people. So He did two things. He met their physical need of hunger for bread, and He also met their spiritual hunger for the bread of life.

Benny Hinn - A "New" Dark "Anointing" by Sandy Simpson, 1999
"I have been receiving e-mails and watching Benny Hinn for the last few nights on TV.  This new turn toward the "dark side" of the "force" with Benny and his wife is revealing, disturbing, and saddening."

Pope John Paul II Receives The Mark of "Aarti", A Prayer To The Hindu Goddess Durga by Sandy Simpson, 1999
This is a photo of the pope receiving the mark of a prayer "aarti" to the Hindu female godess Durga by a professing Christian Hindu woman.  By the time this photo was taken, however, the pope had already been involved in a number of pagan rituals on his trip to India in 1986, including taking the mark of Shiva.  Here is the documented quote: "Still at Madras on February 5, 1986, 'A sugarcane, fashioned into the form of a cross, signifying a Hindu offering to a carnal god, was brought into the presence of the Pope. A little later, during the offertory procession, a coconut was carried to the altar, a typical Hindu offering, which they offer to their idols. Finally, a man placed sacred ashes on his forehead. IT WAS NOT A MATTER OF TILAC BUT OF SACRED ASHES OR VIBHUTI. (*164) THREE DAYS EARLIER, ON FEBRUARY 2, HE HAD RECEIVED ON HIS FOREHEAD THE TILAC OR TIKA, THE RED POWDERY PASTE OF THE HINDUS, THE SIGN OF THE ADORERS OF SHIVA. (*165) *164 ‘Msgr.’ Lefebvre, op. cit. p.177. *165 La Croix of February 6, and 'I' Express' of February 7/13, 1986, with photo."  The Catholic objections to this photo, and their deceptive tactics to try to hide what the pope did on the web, have unearthed even further evidence of the interfaith dabbling with demons by the papacy.

The Cell Church Model - Alpha Course Lite? by Sandy Simpson, 1999
"The cell group model out of Singapore is Alpha Course Lite!  It is simply another front for the Third Wave, another way to seduce churches, looking for a more personal approach, to be more like the house churches of the first century ... and to subtly introduce heresy.  Remember the M.O. of false teachers: 2 Pet. 2:1  But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves."

The Five Basic Doctrines compiled and written by Sandy Simpson, 1999

Jack Deere's Doctrinal Confusion by Sandy Simpson, 1999
"Thanks to mentors like John Wimber, C. Peter Wagner, Chuck Kraft from Fuller as well as Paul Cain and others, Jack Deere had his orthodox view of theology systematically dismantled.  He then became instrumental in introducing the Third Wave to millions of Christians who trusted him because he had been a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary through his books "Surprised By The Power Of The Spirit" and "Surprised By The Voice Of God."  Though these books have some precious truths in them, they also contain heresy.  That is how false teachers ply their trade.  They lay error alongside truth so that the unsuspecting and undiscerning will not be able to tell the difference between what is true and what is not.  Following are a few examples of just how far away from orthodoxy Deere has gone."

Dear Saint, Don't Believe What They Say! by Sandy Simpson, 1999
"The love of God will bring us through this life, not our faith in the "force of faith", nor the words from our lips.  Kenneth Copeland teaches people to put their faith in their words, in what their tongue proclaims."

Everybody Walks Away With Gold! by Sandy Simpson, 1999
Brownsville and Toronto have recently received a much needed shot in the arm to revive their ailing "revivals", but this time it is laced with gold!  "A "holy woman" from Brazil that shakes gold dust from her hair and has oil appear on her skin?  Where is this woman from?  Is she a Catholic or Protestant?  I guess it doesn't matter anymore, folks.  If she can exhibit this kind of magic, then she must be truly "anointed"!  Dreams of Jesus giving flowers and out of body experiences?  Could there be any clearer evidence that the New Age has completely taken over the Third Wave "River"?  These following stories are not for the faint of heart, and not for baby Christians.  Always remember when reading or viewing occult material that there is a real spiritual deception at work and you can be deceived.  These "miracles" are nothing more than demonic manifestations that have nothing whatsoever to do with true biblical manifestations of the gifts of the Spirit." Let's expose this ploy of the enemy for what it is.  With all the new talk in "The River" about "cross-pollination" between movements such as Toronto, Brownsville and Word Faith, these gold "miracles" are nothing more than a plot by the enemy to try to cement the "health and wealth" gospel people with the "transferable manifestation" Third Wavers.  What better way to bring these people together (as if they hadn't been from the beginning!) than to have people get their dental work changed into legal tender?

Salvation Sold For A Donation To TBN by Sandy Simpson, 1999
"The Balaam Network (TBN) has really been raking in the cash lately.  With The Omega Code movie in the top ten of money making movies (thanks to discerning Christians everywhere) and their regular Praise-A-Thon, they are rolling in dough.  So much so that they can now afford to beam utter heresy, like what you are about to read, to all of China.  I have been watching their fund raising antics the last three nights.  I never thought they could top John Avanzini's "Jesus and the disciples were rich", "one hundred fold return" and "the widow's mite" (she "wonted" something) ploys, but R.W. Shambach has just hit a new low.  This e-mail confirmed what viewers heard Shambach say the other night raising funds for TBN.  He has been on solidly for the last three days."

Youth Alive And Alpha Course Team Up by Sandy Simpson, 1999
"How lucky can we be?  Now we not only have the Alpha Course produced by the Toronto "Blessing" and Youth Alive, a program of the Assemblies Of God with strong ties to Brownsville A/G and Awake America, but now Youth Alive is using a new course called "Youth Alpha".  This is really not a surprise, but it will be to many young people who have no idea what they are being "softened up" to.  Youth Alive and Alpha Course, as well as this new Youth Alpha Course are simply entry points to the counterfeit revival 'river'."

Jesus Christ Slated To Star With Benny Hinn ... IN PERSON! by Sandy Simpson, 4/00
"I received these e-mails confirming that Benny Hinn has announced that Jesus Christ will appear bodily in Hinn's crusades.  This was "prophesied" by Ruth Heflin, now famous for serving up gold teeth and gold dust all over Christendumb (and I am not misspelling that word!)."

Celebrate Jesus 2000? by Sandy Simpson, 4/17/2000
"Hot on the heels of the Benny Hinn/Ruth Heflin prophesy that Jesus will appear bodily in Hinn's crusades and other Third Wave meetings comes the following information ... For those of you who hang on every word and action of your "anointed" Third Wave leaders, this news may come as a shock.  Did you know that they have all decided to get together with the Roman Catholic Church?"

Satanic Crosses ... A Stamp Of Approval? by Sandy Simpson, 4/17/2000
"The items we will be discussing here, though, are highly unlikely to be the product of any normal human conspiracy.  But we know from that Word that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers (Eph. 6:12).  It is very curious to see satanic symbols popping up in some very prominent places lately."

Luring People To Destruction By The Unscrupulous Use Of The Gospel Message by Sandy Simpson, 6/8/00
"I already know that this article will be unpopular. The idea that people can be seduced by the unscrupulous use of the Gospel message may sound heretical in and of itself.  People like Benny Hinn have been credited from time to time with having preached the Gospel pretty straight and people seem to be professing faith in Christ.  I have heard the argument from Phil. 1:14-18  used over and over in this regard. Let me pose some questions that will hopefully help you focus on this issue before launching into my short thesis."

Testing Music In The Church by Sandy Simpson, 10/00
"Music is a very powerful medium, perhaps even more powerful in terms of what and how much a person remembers than sermons. So it must be treated with the same kind of discernment. We need to be very much aware of the songs that are being used in the church."

Walking With God by Sandy Simpson, Sermon Notes, 11/00
"What would it be like if you have a friend but no contact, no walking with him?  (1) lose touch (2) lose track - lose understanding (3) no longer moving in the same direction (4) ultimately friendship grows cold - lose friendship."

Healer? Heal Thyself! by Sandy Simpson, 11/14/00
"A good subtitle for this article might be "Practice What You Preach!"  There is no doubt that God can and does heal people today.  But the false doctrines of the Word-Faith Movement about "declaring" healing, "name-it-and-claim-it", etc. have been proven to be lies by the very people who sell this deceit.  If you don't know about where these famous "faith healers" go when they need healing, you may be surprised.  Do the math.  Be a Berean.  Learn to discern!"

But this prayer is more than an outline.  It is not some thing we are to repeat mindlessly to get what we want from God.  It is a prayer that should be at the very heart of our faith in the Lord.  We show our complete worship and submission to our Father.  We ask Him to meet our needs.  We don't just expect Him to forgive us but we also forgive others.  We ask Him to protect and deliver us from the evil one.  We are completely dependant on Him for everything.

Tommy Tenney's Background & Connections by Sandy Simpson, DITC, 2/01
For those of you who have been duped into believing that Tommy Tenney is a perfectly harmless believer by Christian Book Distributors who just featured his books and videos on the entire back cover of their latest catalog (CBD 2/00), here's a little history lesson on Tenney.  First of all read up on his UPC roots (you know, the guys who deny the Triunity of the Godhead and teach baptismal regeneration!). For more info on UPC check out this article.  Though Tommy left the UPC over its legalism he has never flat out denied his UPC anti-Trinitarian beliefs to our knowledge. Then peruse the trumped up "broken pulpit in Houston" story, and finish off looking at some pictures from a recent Pastors Conference 2000 at TACF with John Arnott and others.  I guess the "laughter" movement isn't dead after all and Tenney is a "shoe" in.

T.B. Joshua -To Deceive Even The Elect ... by Sandy Simpson, Deception In The Church, 3/01
"An expose' on T.B. Joshua of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations."

The New Powerless Gospel by Sandy Simpson, Deception In The Church, 4/19/01
"I have been challenged lately to think again about what the Gospel message is all about.  This has come as a result of hearing what I consider to be, at the very least, "gospel lite" and at the most no gospel at all being presented by a number of neo-evangelicals, Third Wavers and outright heretics.  The interesting thing is that many seem to be preaching the same message.  What is most intriguing is that false teachers like Benny Hinn, ecumenicals, and even some preachers I would consider to be orthodox in their theology are preaching a "gospel" that is very similar. The question is: Is this new gospel message really the Gospel at all?"

Reinhard Bonnke - Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind by Sandy Simpson, DITC, 4/26/01
Reinhard Bonnke, a German evangelist who does a lot of his preaching in the Two Thirds world, was recently investigated by HBO on their show "A Question Of Miracles" aired 4/15/01.

The Prayer Of Jabez & The Prayer Of James by Sandy Simpson, 5/01
"Do you want your rewards now or later?  Would you rather ask for abundance or wisdom?  Did Solomon ask for abundance or wisdom?  Would you rather lay up treasures in heaven or on earth?"

Biblical New Testament Prayers by Sandy Simpson, Deception In The Church, 5/7/01
"With all the talk about "praying the Jabez prayer" making the rounds in so many churches, I thought it was time to revisit a short section I wrote in a booklet called "What Should I Say".  It talked about biblical New Testament prayers.  These are prayers that the apostles and Christians prayed.  Since Christ and the apostles are our foundation, we ought to be emulating what they prayed and not some guy who prayed a prayer in the Old Testament that was never meant to be a model prayer.  If you are interested in a model prayer then go to the Disciple's Prayer (most often called the Lord's Prayer) in Matthew 6:9-13."

Will The Real Blasphemers Please Stand Up? by Sandy Simpson, DITC, 6/6/01
"This subject is one so serious that I do it with great fear and trepidation. Nonetheless, because I get so many e-mails accusing me and other Bereans of blasphemy, among other serious charges, I felt it was necessary to clear up some issues on this topic. Because of my stand for the truth of God's Word juxtaposed against all the false teaching that is going on today, I think it is important to do a quick study on what blasphemy is actually all about from a biblical standpoint.  There are many references to blasphemy in the Bible and from them we can find out how and why that term was used."

Upgrade Your Old Hymns For The New Paradigm! by Sandy Simpson, 9/01
"Time for a rewrite of the old hymns.  In this day and age of Third Wave revival movements and Word-Faith dominion, the old hymns just aren't cutting it anymore.  Not only are they old fashioned musically, but the lyrics are, for the most part, particularly depressing. They talk of sin, death, repentanace, the cross, the blood of Jesus and a whole host of other disgusting subjects.  There are also too many lyrics in them, frankly, which takes away from the "worship" atmosphere. Repetitiveness is what we need, not dead doctrinal concepts. The old hymns are just too biblical. Give us a beat to move our feet, not concepts to move our hearts and minds!"

The Message Of The Terrorist Attacks On The U.S.?  REPENT! by Sandy Simpson, 9/14/01
"We all need to take a good long look at our relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and REPENT!  If we are too weak and ineffectual to judge those inside the church, then God will have to judge those outside (1 Cor. 5:13) and inside as well!"

Globalism & Interfaith - Here We Come! by Sandy Simpson, 9/16/01
"As the days wear on in the aftermath of the attack on the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon, we are watching a globalist, interfaith agenda unfold on worldwide television.  I am here to say that if this continues the full wrath of God is bound to come upon our nation and the world!"

Is Allah The Same As YHWH? by Sandy Simpson, 9/16/01
"Is the god of Islam, Allah, the same as the God of Israel and Christianity, YHWH?  Does Allah have a son?  Does YHWH have a Son?  What other teachings from the Koran show that Islam is a different religion than biblical Christianity?  Here is a side by side chart that might prove helpful in your research on this subject."

commentary by Sandy Simpson, 9/27/01

Where Are The Faith Healers Now? by Sandy Simpson, 10/01
"In the wake of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. one question begs to be answered.  Where are the faith healers now?  Are they hiding?"

Harry Potter Christians by Sandy Simpson, 11/16/01
"With the release of the Harry Potter movie expecting the largest revenue for any movie released to date and the sales in the multiple millions of Harry Potter series books, I think it's time to make some comparisons.  This article is not a review of the Harry Potter movie or the book, and for that you can find a number of articles that do a careful analysis of the dangers of teaching our children that sorcery is something that is good and desirable.  For Harry Potter books and movie reviews from a Christian perspective, read the following articles. This article, however, is about what I am terming "Harry Potter Christians".  Whether or not Third Wavers approve of Harry Potter books and the movie, they are living, practicing Harry Potters nonetheless. "

Copeland Claims One Billion Muslims Will Be Saved Within Months by Sandy Simpson, 12/5/02
"False prophet extraordinaire Kenneth Copeland, in a dedication service on 12/02/01 for the new 2000 seat Word of Life church auditorium in Honolulu, predicted that one billion Muslims would be saved in the next few months.  Audio and exact transcript will soon be available in this article so you can hear it for yourself. This false prediction tops all his previous false prophecy records."

"This article is a continuation of an article called Benny Hinn In Oahu, HI 1/02 - A Report From The Outside on the crusade in Oahu, HI.  In this article I will share with you my conclusions about Benny Hinn and his followers.  Is Benny Hinn a prototype cult leader and his followers cultists?  You be the judge."

Biblical Divine Healing Versus Other Types Of Healing by Sandy Simpson, 1/25/02
"There are basically five types of healing in the world today. Biblical Divine, Natural, Medicinal/Medical, Psychological, and Paranormal/Demonic healing.  This paper is an attempt to study these various types of healings, to identify their characteristics, to show their biblical support, and then to make comparisons with some of the healing claims of televangelists like Benny Hinn and others."

Joy Dawson Of Youth With A Mission (YWAM)
Joins Forces With Benny Hinn by Sandy Simpson, 1/28/02 "In Benny Hinn's Honolulu, HI crusade at the Blaisdel Arena on 1/11/02 Joy Dawson of YWAM appeared on stage with Benny.  Prior and subsequent to this appearance she was also featured on his TV programs.  Onstage Joy Dawson was highly complimentary of Benny Hinn and his ministries. They made plans to reach out to the youth of HI together officially that night."

Mistake Or Sin? by Sandy Simpson, 3/13/02
"Words have meanings.  Third Wave false teachers are currently in the process of redefining both the English language and the truths of God's Word, and calling it "new revelation" and a "paradigm shift".  Let's all be careful that we don't take a paradigm shift into foolishness and accept new revelation that drags us further into sin."

Indigenous People Issues - A Warning About The World Christian Gathering Of Indigenous People by Sandy Simpson, Pacific Waves Newsletter, 5/02
"But I do not endorse movements that, for all their good intentions, are a mixture of good, unbiblical and heretical theology. How can we effectively bring the gospel if that gospel is tainted by the world, the flesh and the devil. We as Christians must stand firm in the faith once for all delivered to the saints. We must not get involved in ecumenical movements that look like the world, act like the world, and instead of bringing the Word to the world are bringing the world to the world."  Go here for a commentary on the full transcript of the "Word To The World" radio programs 541-550.

The Third Wave "New Apostolic Reformation" - Heretical doctrines and ideas that have fused together to form the teachings of the movement by Sandy Simpson, 10/02

Reinhard Bonnke - Unbiblical Teachings And Actions by Sandy Simpson, DITC, 10/02
This article consists of quotes from a number of different sources.  These quotes and accounts are offered as proof the Reinhard Bonnke has been teaching heresy and promoting a false transferable anointing for many years.  He is an ecumenist, teaches prosperity doctrines, says every Christian must speak in tongues as a sign of the "baptism" of the Spirit, claims that faith is a force, and preaches a gospel devoid of the power to save.  He has also lied about healings and dead raising.

The Third Wave "New Apostolic Reformation" - Heretical doctrines and ideas that have fused together to form the teachings of the movement by Sandy Simpson, 10/02
"If there is anything I want you to come away with from this article is to know who the false teachers are so that you can stay away from them and help others to avoid them as well.  My general advice is to turn off TBN, get into the Word of God daily, get down on your knees and pray for people in your sphere of influence who may be falling into the Third Wave, and reach out to them to pull them from the fire.  Stand firm in the Faith and don't allow false heresies from the past and present leaven your faith away from a pure and true faith in Jesus Christ."

YWAM: The Facts About Their Headlong Dive Into Apostasy by Sandy Simpson, 12/7/02 
YWAM has been slipping into apostasy for years.  I and many others have tried to help them back to orthodoxy, written letters to their leaders, all without success.  It has been made plain to us and others that they have completely bought into every aspect of the New Apostolic Reformation and are now very visible and vocal proponents of the C. Peter Wagner "gospel".

An Open Letter to the National Association of Evangelicals - Re: The Election of Ted Haggard as President of the NAE by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer, ACT & Let Us Reason Ministries, 3/27/03
This open letter details facts that the NAE membership may have overlooked in their election of Haggard.  The letter shows Ted Haggard's promotion of ecumenical unity between orthodox Pentecostals, charismatics, the UPC cult, the Third Wave, and the Word-Faith movement.  It shows a false prophesy he just made.  It highlights his evangelistic methodology and unbiblical spiritual warfare techniques.  Most importantly, it shows how this election fits in perfectly with the plans of the International Coalition of Apostles under C. Peter Wagner to take over leadership in Christendom.

An Answer To Ted Haggard - Response To Ted Haggard's Email Rebuttal To Our Open Letter To The NAE by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer, ACT & Let Us Reason Ministries, 4/23/03
This article is a response to an email we received from Ted Haggard on April 7, 2003. Haggard was responding to our Open Letter To The NAE.  Keep in mind that Ted Haggard did not want us to use the word "official response" but graciously gave us permission to use his comments. The reason we asked if his email to us was an official response to our open letter was because we wanted to find out if he stood behind what he claimed in his emails to us. We did this so that we would be able to give a thoughtful response and not expect him to take some other position after the fact. This letter is not meant to be disrespectful. Our intent is to be honest in our position and response. 

Ted Haggard Quickly Uses His New Presidency In The NAE - To Advance Policies For Evanglelicals On Islam by Sandy Simpson, 5/10/03
We warned the Church about the effect that the International Coalition of Apostles will have on Christendom recently in our an Open Letter to the National Association of Evangelicals - Re: The Election of Ted Haggard as President of the NAE by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer, ACT & Let Us Reason Ministries, 3/27/03 and An Answer To Ted Haggard - Response To Ted Haggard's Email Rebuttal To Our Open Letter To The NAE by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer, ACT & Let Us Reason Ministries, 4/23/03.  We believe that the seriousness of doctrinal issues regarding the International Coalition Of Apostles (ICA) and the assertions of Ted Haggard with regard to his involvement present a threat to the integrity of the truths of the written Word of God and to the Gospel message.

The Role Of Women In The Church by Sandy Simpson, 7/03
If men were exercising true biblical authority over their daughters and wives in love, the debate over the role of women in the Church would not be such an issue. If women today were submissive to their husbands, we would not have many of the problems we have today in the Church.

Benny Hinn's Response To Dateline NBCby Sandy Simpson, 1/11/03
There is no need to go into the history of Benny Hinn because he has been around what seems like forever and has been investigated enough times so that most people know quite a bit about him.  An excellent resource on the history of Benny Hinn is available from Personal Freedom Outreach in a book called "The Confusing World Of Benny Hinn".  Hinn has been investigated by two major secular news shows, and by some Christian news media as well.  Most recently he was investigated by Dateline NBC in a show that aired December 27, 2002.  All of these shows showed evidence that Benny Hinn has been scaming people for their money with false healing claims that he cannot prove.  He was asked on all these shows to provide medical proof of the miracles he and his follower claim to be experiencing, but to date not one shred of definitive evidence has been provided by the ministry.  Hinn did provide evidence, but when it was investigated the claims turned out to be claims without medical justification.  Quite contrary to Hinn's claims, a number of people have died who Hinn proclaimed healed. 

C&MA Endorses the Word of Faith Movement by Sandy Simpson, 9/30/03
I have a great admiration for both A.B. Simpson and Christian and Missionary Alliance for their work for the Lord up to the present time.  This is why I am writing this article because I believe that Jonathan Graf, Director of Prayer Mobilization for C&MA is attempting to indoctrinate that organization with false teachings from the Word-Faith movement.

1 Samuel 15:22  But Samuel replied: "Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.

The New "How To" Christianity - Helpful Tools Or Dangerous Weapons? by Sandy Simpson, 8/00, revised 3/04
"... the goal of Christian mission is not success, but faithful witness; not power, but proclamation; not technique, but truth; not method, but message." - Michael Horton, Power Religion, Moody Press, pg. 15

The Profit-Driven Church by Sandy Simpson, 3/5/04
The Purpose-Driven Church, Purpose-Driven Life and every other "purpose-driven" program that Rick Warren of Saddleback Church is selling to the Christian masses at the moment has an underlying agenda that is hardly highlighted by the Church or Christians. The church growth strategies that seem to work equally well for Christians, Mormons, Jews, Catholics and any other religion1 have a solid "profit-driven" motive built into the programs.  If you meet the "felt needs" of people, they will come. And when they come they bring their checkbooks with them. 

A Call For Repentance! - a debrief on the "A Call For Accountability" and "The Orlando Statement" which was brought to consensus among Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation false apostles and false prophets by Sandy Simpson, 3/9/04
A group of the International Coalition of Apostles (ICA), which was organized by "super apostle" C. Peter Wagner and other "apostles and prophets" with the express goal of bringing the entire apostate "Church" under their leadership, recently agreed upon the following "A Call For Accountability".  It is laudable that they are attempting to address unethical and immoral practices in Third Wave churches under their "authority", but you cannot address the symptom if you don't deal with the root of the problem.  The root is the sin of apostasy from the truth. 

Ted Haggard Invites Robert Schuller As NAE Speaker reported by The Calvary Contender, Jerry Huffman-Editor, April 2004-with comment by Sandy Simpson

It's "Glory Dust" And "Manna" In The Apostate Church by Sandy Simpson, 3/30/04
Well, here we go again.  On OpenHeaven.com we find a report as of 1/15/03 of "Revival, Gold & Manna".  This report is backed up with no facts, pictures, or documentation ... just more unverified stories by those who want to entice others into their "love feasts" (Jude 1:12).  Let's look at some of the "facts" of this report so we can dispel this "myth" biblically and get back to reality.

Entertainment-style Christianity vs. Interactive-style Christianity by Sandy Simpson, 5/04
Today, in a majority of churches, we see the result of the seeker-friendly, "purpose-driven", church  growth, Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation methods and teachings and their product I am calling "Entertainment-style Christianity" (EST).  But EST churches are not only missing out on the cutting edge of true Christianity, but are heading down the road to apostasy. 

Let's Take A Look At The "Judge Not" Argument For A Moment! by Sandy Simpson, 6/3/04
It's very interesting to me how Christians are quick, these days, to pull out the old "judge not lest you be judged" excuse when they are angry at you for warning people away from their favorite false teachers and false prophets by name.  They come down on those who test the spirits (1 Jn. 4:1), discern truth from error (Phil. 1:9-11, Prov. 3:21) and judge rightly (Jn. 7:24) when those are ways in which God has told us we ARE to judge.  They use the "judge not" ploy to make themselves look like they are holier-than-thou and above the fray, and in so doing they are already in violation of Matt. 7:1 because they are judging those they say are being judgmental hypocritically.  But think about the ways in which we all tend to judge in a whole variety of unbiblical ways every day.

The Overseer - A Study In Titus 1:6-11 by Sandy Simpson, 6/25/04
There once was a shepherd who loved his flock of sheep.  He fed them and watered them.  He bathed them and tended to their hurts.  The only trouble is he did not build a protected fence around their home.  He had a habit of going to sleep at night leaving no one to guard them.  They had always been safe in the past, but one night wolves came.  In the morning when he woke up many of the sheep were missing or dead.  That day he built a fence and made sure there was always someone there to guard the sheep at night.

Francis Frangipane - Another Good Example Of The False Latter Rain Teaching On The Transferable Anointing by Sandy Simpson, 6/30/04
Elijah List sends out heretical Latter Rain teachings all over the world daily in their newsletters.  So it is no surprise to see Francis Frangipane, a long time Latter Rain heretic, featured in their newsletter.  The Latter Rain teaches that there is a transferable impartation of the "anointing" that can be transferred "by" the laying on of hands "by" the will of man, usually though slain in the spirit.  As I have written before, this is heresy. This teaching denies the Triune nature of God, that He is One sovereign God eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  When you claim you can transfer an impartation or anointing of the Holy Spirit by human hands by the will of men, you effectively deny both the Deity and personality of the Holy Spirit.  You deny the Deity by claiming you have the power to transfer the Holy Spirit at will, and you deny the person of the Holy Spirit by treating Him like some kind of "force" or "power" seperate from His person.  These ideas are New Age ideas wrapped up in a Christian wrapper.  Slain in the spirit and the transferable anointing are nowhere taught or demonstrated by the Apostles, prophets or Jesus Christ Himself.

Seeds, Soil & Fruit by Sandy Simpson, 9/19/04
Some seeds have been genetically altered.  Something has been added to the seed to produce a certain result.  What has been added is indoctrination, brainwashing, diaprax, false prophecy, false apostolic edicts, false anointings.  These additives produce seeds that will, in turn, grow bad trees, producing bad fruit, which in turn produce more bad seeds as the process renews itself over and over again.

The New Panentheistic "God" Of Christendom by Sandy Simpson, 9/25/04
There is a new "God" being promoted in the Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation and Word of Faith movements whose teachers are regularly seen on TBN, Daystar, SkyAngel, CBN and other "Christian" TV networks.  Some of those teachers even have, what would be considered, a fairly typical statement of faith or doctrinal statement they endorse.  But by what they teach they end up promoting a false unbiblical view of God, especially through their actions and experiences.  The whole phenomenon of "slain in the spirit" and all the antics that go with it are brainwashing an entire generation of Christians to put their faith in another Jesus, another Spirit, another Gospel.  This new "Jesus" and "Holy Spirit" is clearly pantheistic or panentheistic in nature.  Though some of these teachers would claim to be believing in the God who is One God in Three Persons, by what they teach they deny the very revealed character of God from Scripture.

Synergy by Sandy Simpson, 9/29/04
Synergy is a concept being adapted and taught today as a major tenet of the Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement.  Dutch Sheets was one of the first to introduce this concept to that movement back in the National School of the Prophets - Mobilizing the Prophetic Office Conference at Ted Haggard's New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO on May 12, 2002.

Richard Twiss Connections by Sandy Simpson, 10/1/04
Richard Twiss is spreading the doctrines of the New Apostolic Reformation and is endorsed by them.  He claims that the Great Spirit of the Indians is the Holy Spirit of the Bible, and endorses ministries who make this same claim.  He endorses and promoted books by people like Daniel Kikawa that present information as fact when it is proven myth.  He continues to teach that the Great Spirit is the Holy Spirit by wearing the cultural items associated with the Great Spirit, even though it is a historical fact that the Great Spirit is a pantheistic god that required blood rituals and human sacrifice.  Richard Twiss claims that what he is doing is not syncretism, when it is the very definition of syncretism. 

Jack Deere's View On Prophecy by Sandy Simpson, 10/2/04
Jack Deere's understanding of the gift of prophecy reflects the twisted teachings of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) of which he has been a part since the days of John Wimber, Paul Cain and C. Peter Wagner in the early formation of the Vineyard and Toronto Blessing movements. 

False Prophecies Of The New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) by Sandy Simpson, 10/03/04
There is so much false prophecy in the NAR that it I could do an entire web site devoted to that issue alone.  If you want to see the daily parade of false prophecies emanating from the NAR, subscribe to the Elijah List.  It means nothing to these false apostles and false prophets to say things in the name of the Lord that not only do not come to pass, but would never come to pass because they are unbiblical and ridiculous.

False Apostles! - The False Apostles Of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) by Sandy Simpson, 10/13/04
The NAR proponants claim to be foundational Apostles to the modern church.  This claim is exactly what Paul warned the Church about regarding false apostles.  False apostles are identified as those who claim they are equal with the the foundational Apostles.  The NAR proponants go even further. They claim to be GREATER than the original Apostles.

At the core of maturity in Christ is the issue of training to be able to distinguish between good and evil, right and wrong. But in today’s churches this issue has not only been downplayed, but actually swept aside.

Unity Of The Faith & Maturity by Sandy Simpson, 02/05 

Those who are mature in Christ are those who are reaching unity in the Faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God. Those who are not mature strive for ecumenical or interfaith unity thinking that they are growing in the Lord, and it is usually a point of pride to them. But they have mistaken what Paul was talking about. Unity in the Faith is talking about coming to a common understanding and practice of the core truths of the Faith as taught to us in the Bible through Jesus Christ and the Apostles. 

"But they have a good doctrinal statement!" by Sandy Simpson, 2/26/05
Why do people have discernment about the FACT of eggs, yet apparently so few have discernment about the FACTS of the Bible?

There Are 3 Types Of Predictive "Prophecy" That Can Come True Sometimes - There Is Only 1 Type Of Predictive Prophecy That Comes True All The Time!by Sandy Simpson, 3/05 

Prophecy is a broad term.  In the Bible it is often defined as preaching, teaching, exhorting, etc.  Prophecy in modern times has come to mean almost exclusively the prediction of future events.  But this is only one aspect of prophecy as defined in the Word.

The Biblical Definition Of Worship by Sandy Simpson, 3/05 

In many churches around the world the concept of "worship" has been redefined and narrowed to mean the time when Christians come together to sing songs, raise their hands, dance around, and get all excited about the Lord together in church.  For most of the younger postmodernist relativistic generation the concept of "worship" has become a thing you do once or twice a week to absolve yourself of guilt.  The more you can work yourself into a state of bliss in feeling like you are really achieving a state of "worship" by letting yourself go in the music and rhythm of the "worship" time, the more you can justify what you are doing the rest of the week when you are not "worshipping" God.  This "worship" then becomes an excuse and justification process whereby Christians can rid themselves of the guilt of not obeying the Lord in their lives.  This is not to say that true worship is not done in the time now called "worship".  It can be a time of worship, but worship without obedience is no worship at all.

Vinod K. Isaac of Jasmine Computers Hosts A Pro "Benny Hinn" Web Site (The site belongs to his sister who is not revealing her name!) by Sandy Simpson, 3/05
There is a web site on the Internet, and there are others, that attempt to vindicate Benny Hinn's false prophecies, false teachings, necromancy and other unbiblical things he is doing.  Recently the author of this site, the sister of Vinod K. Isaac, initiated an email exchange with me.  Vinod, her brother, owns a computer outfit in Chicago called "Jasmin Computers" and is apparently hosting her web page on his computer site.  Unlike most Christian web sites, including ours, who are up front about who we are, his sister has never revealed her name on her site and there is no way to contact her other than an email form.  It wasn't until she wrote me, claiming to be Benny Hinn by signing her emails "BH" and using his name as her email address at bennyhinn2@yahoo.com that I made the connection between her and her web site. She accused me in her emails of not giving the facts about Benny Hinn, in fact calling me a liar and a deceiver. I cannot reprint her emails here because it is a violation of ethics concerning private and protected by copyright law.  Those who wish to reprint private emails are duty bound by common copyright laws to ask permission of the author to do so, which we do on our site. In response to her invective and accusations, I sent her a number of links to articles about Benny Hinn.  Her subsequent responses showed that she had not read the articles I sent her.  I then began to attach the full length articles to her emails, which had grown to a number of emails per day, hoping she might accidentally see them.  I gave her Hinn's false prophecies.  She just kept coming back with rhetoric about how I didn't know what I was talking about.  She indicated she would not read the articles I sent. She finally told me she had decided to put up a page trying to prove I was wrong with my name on it, stating that I was a deceiver. So I believe it is time to bring this to public attention.  I do not want to throw any traffic her way because the DITC site has thousands of hits per week.  But I feel I do need to address her ridiculous assertions and mishandling of Scripture to try to defend a proven heretic and false prophet, Benny Hinn. Following is a refutation of her "facts" about what I have on my site, and about Hinn point by point.  This is not rocket science, folks.  What "BH2" has on this new web page, which is an abbreviation of her email address and how we will refer to her in the following, is quotes exactly from her site in Red.  My rebuttal is in Blue.  So here goes ...

Learn To Love Jesus Christ! by Sandy Simpson, March 2005

Is learning to love yourself really what people need to learn?  Is this how a Christian should accurately explain the human condition?  Is the problem with people that they don't love themselves enough or that they only love themselves?  Is loving yourself the answer to your needs in life? After reading Rick Warren's first contract column called "Learn To Love Yourself!" for Ladies Home Journal (LHJ), it struck me that it is a perfect example of why churches should definitely NOT be using his materials. 

What We Need Is A Reverse Paradigm Shift! by Sandy Simpson, 3/30/05 

I'm going to warn you now.  I am going to let you in on some information tonight that is going to radically change your world view.  You are likely going to experience the beginnings of a reverse paradigm shift and after tonight there will be no way to go back the way you came.  You will be faced with choices that you may never have known you had.  You will be faced with a new way of looking at things that is going to cause you to rethink everything that is being taught in the Emerging Latter Rain churches.  It is going to be radical because the basis for this message doesn't come from Jesus Christ visiting my room last night bodily, but from His holy written Word.  So buckle down your seat belts, you're likely in for a bumpy ride!
Should biblical Christian churches be Christ-centered (Christocentric)?  Should the doctrines of the Father (Patriology) and the Holy Spirit (Pnematology) also be equally emphasized?  Can a church be Patriocentric or Pnemacentric and be biblical?

Smack Dab In The Middle Of The Apostasy
"Evangelicals" Fawn Over The Pope At His Death by Sandy Simpson, 4/7/05
The Roman Catholic Church, headed by the popes, have long taught against at least two of the "central doctrines of the Christian Faith".  That "Evangelical" leaders would endorse the pope, glorify him, say he is a saint, and laud him to the world is a testament of just how far into apostasy the Evangelical churches have fallen.

A Call To The Nations? by Sandy Simpson, 4/28/05
Unbiblical teachings by the organizers and participants of this conference including Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa, Aloha Ke Akua and YWAM.

Let's "Talkstory"! by Sandy Simpson, 5/7/05
Two stories to illustrate and correct the false teachings of "A Call To All Nations" speakers including Don Richardson, John Dawson, Richard Twiss and Daniel Kikawa with regard to there being worship of the true God in hundreds of cultures from the beginning.

Regarding The Accuracy Of Oral Traditions - With Reference To Daniel Kikawa's Book "Perpetuated In Righteousness"by Sandy Simpson, 5/10/05
The accuracy of oral tradition is, in a word, "inaccurate".  God calls oral tradition "fables", and I dare say that if we were able to trace back most oral traditions today, as God sees them from an eternal perspective, we would see the mutations, changes and fabrications involved in modern mythology. 

The Testimony Of Heneri Opukaha'ia - regarding the state of religion and society in Hawaii before the Gospel - A Rebuttal To Daniel Kikawa's Book "Perpetuated In Righteousness" by Sandy Simpson, 5/17/05
This article is a reminder of what Hawaii was like before the Gospel was preached.  This is the account of a very important eyewitness. It is an unfortunate fact that often, by the third generation of Christians in any given area of the world, important information has begun to be lost and forgotten.  This is clearly evident in the writings of people like Daniel Kikawa.  The stark facts, of Hawaiian culture and religion before the Gospel was preached in Hawaii, are made evident by the testimony of a man without whom the peoples of Hawaii would never have had the opportunity to hear the Gospel message and would still be living in the sins of their ancestors.

The Agenda & Teaching Of The New Apostolic Reformation with forward by Sandy Simpson, 5/23/05
I am posting the transcript of this conference in the hope that those who want to know what is going on in the churches across the world today will be able to understand the agenda of the New Apostolic Reformation.  This agenda runs through thousands of agencies and web sites.  It is what is driving the Transformations movement, the global prayer movement, and thousands of other churches and organizations.  What Christians need to realize is that they need to make a choice now.  A majority of Christian churches have already succumbed to this Dominionist agenda foisted on the churches by false apostles driven by false prophecies from false prophets.  Wagner is talking about the government of the church, under the leadership of the new foundational restored "apostles", OVERTHROWING the governments of the world. A spirit is indeed saying something to the churches, but since this is based on false prophecy rather than the written Word, you can begin to understand that this is not of the Holy Spirit speaking.  If this agenda that C. Peter Wagner is proposing and is about to pull off is not "the woman who rides the beast" I don't know what is!

The Responsibilities Of A Good Shepherd by Sandy Simpson, 5/20/05
Those who are called to be servant under shepherds in the body of Christ must take that responsibility seriously.  There are far too many who claim to be called to servant leadership, but demonstrate clearly that they are not qualified to be shepherds according to God's criteria.  We need to be feeding the lambs and the sheep, bringing them to good pasture lands and water, grooming and clipping them, delivering new lambs, leading them and teaching them to stay together, going off after the wandering lost ones, and protecting the sheep in the field and in the fold.


This video study series is taken from the Discernment Toolkit  book but includes a lot of footage of false teachers and false prophets.  It will help you and/or your group learn how to test, discern and judge teaching and prophecy that is out there today in a very practical way.  It covers the core doctrines, how we can use them to test, and examples on the DVD that can be paused for discussion.  This series also includes a teacher guide and links to resources on the web.  This 3-DVD series is available now!  Go here for ordering details!
 


New Age/Eastern Mysticism In The Churches by Sandy Simpson, 9/18/05
Within my lifetime there has been a monumental change in the churches. In the last few decades New Age Eastern Mysticism and Gnosticism has entered a majority of Christian churches. It entered very slowly, like a frog in a pot. When the pot is slowly brought to a boil with a live frog in the pot it has been observed that he will not jump out because he does not feel the changes in temperature until he is boiled to death. The "slow boil" of New Age brainwashing in the churches started a long time ago, but even in the last 20 years or so the changes are stark. None of the New Age practices I will mention could be found in most churches at that time, and would have been soundly dismissed as unbiblical and heretical. Many will ask, "Where has the New Age entered the churches?" All you have to do is think about it a little and you will see that many churches have adopted New Age teachings and ideas and "Christianized" them, when none of them are biblical.

ADDENDUM to "An Answer To Ted Haggard"by Sandy Simpson, 9/19/05
I do not want to belabor this issue, but in the pursuit of truth I must update you on a few current developments in this story.  Please refer to the original articles here: An Open Letter to the National Association of Evangelicals - Re: The Election of Ted Haggard as President of the NAE by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer, ACT & Let Us Reason Ministries, 3/27/03. An Answer To Ted Haggard - Response To Ted Haggard's Email Rebuttal To Our Open Letter To The NAE by Sandy Simpson & Mike Oppenheimer, ACT & Let Us Reason Ministries, 4/23/03. Ted Haggard is apparently still telling people he has no formal association with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) and it's International Coalition Of Apostles (ICA).  He recently reiterated this assertion on a radio program called "Issues, Etc." on 9/13/05.  You can watch the Windows Media version of this interview here or access the MP3 audio here.  The "Issues, Etc." site is located here.

Three Fallacies Of Third Wave Spiritual Warfare Teachings by Sandy Simpson, 10/19/05
A recent Third Wave newsletter illustrates the ridiculous and erroneous nature of New Apostolic "spiritual warfare" teachings.

Explain Or Explain Away? by Sandy Simpson, 10/25/05

A proper balance of Biblical teaching, as demonstrated by the Apostles, is to both explain God's Word (good hermeneutics, exegesis) and to explain away false teachings of any particular passage (polemics and/or apologetics).

Why The LDS/Mormon Church Will NEVER Be Part Of The Body Of Christ by Sandy Simpson, 10/26/05
An answer to the efforts of people like Greg Johnson (Standing Together), Richard Mouw (Fuller Theological Seminary), Craig Hazen (Biola University), Ravi Zacharias (RZIM) and many others who are attempting to forge some kind of "Evangelicals And Mormons Together" alliance out of thin air.

The Emerging/Emergent Church - and their use of "diaprax"  by Sandy Simpson, 11/28/05
The concept of the Emerging Church, as advertised worldwide in books, the web and on TV by the likes of Brian Mclaren, Leonard Sweet, Richard Foster, Dan Kimball, Rick Warren, Ken Blanchard and a whole host of others, seeks to cater to the postmodern mindset while using diaprax to achieve its goals.  The Hegelian Dialectic is used in concert with praxis (known as “diaprax”) to brainwash an entire generation into creating a new hybrid Christianity. This new religion is full of Eastern mysticism and Gnosticism, while systematically redefining the teachings of Jesus Christ, the Apostles and Prophets within a subjectivist, existentialist worldview. 

Ding Dong, Ding Dong, Wake Up Leonard Sweet!
by Sandy Simpson, 11/27/05
This article will expose Leonord Sweet as a postmodernist who apparently is so caught up in his postmodern paradigm shift that he is unable to think clearly at all, let alone teach.  On his The Double Ring Video by Leonard Sweet, Sweet's SoulCafe, 1998, Vol. 3 which I have transcribed here in totality, you can hear the bell toll twice announcing the demise of Christianity falling headlong into a global apostate end times false religion.

Satan, The First Postmodernist by Sandy Simpson, 12/1/05

ACT Letter To The Fiji Times About Benny Hinn
by Sandy Simpson, 1/3/05, Fiji Times Online, Voice of the People, Letters to the Editor, January 3, 2006
This invitation to Hinn is facilitated by a church coalition that is simply trying to further the "transformations" agenda to remake the world into the image of the false apostles and false prophets of the New Apostolic Reformation. 

Dominionism Exposed compiled by Sandy Simpson, 2/2/06
Kingdom-Dominion, or 'Restoration' theology has risen to popular acceptance in the last thirty years or so, gaining confidence and strength with time and developing its doctrine as it progressed.

Brain McLaren: A Prime Example Of Diaprax by Sandy Simpson, 2/16/06
I have written in a previous article called The Emerging/Emergent Church - and their use of "diaprax" briefly detailing the use of the Hegelian Dialectic and praxis (diaprax) by New Apostolic and Emerging Church leaders.  What I want to show in this article is a perfect example of diaprax in the teachings of Brian McLaren, a main leader in the Emerging Church.  If you want to read the entire transcript of “An New Kind Of Christian – Part 1”, a video teaching by Brian McLaren, you can access it here.  I also urge you to watch the video for yourself which is available online here.  When you watch be aware of the intentional and even unintentional uses of brainwashing techniques.  I will only quote certain parts of McLaren’s teachings to emphasize the use of diaprax as well as other false teachings.

11 Reasons To Reject The Teachings Of The Indigenous People's Movement by Sandy Simpson, 3/4/06

Peter Popoff - Back To His Old Tricks! by Sandy Simpson, 3/17/06
I received a letter from Peter Popoff.  I did not sign up for his address list, but apparently he got my name and address from somewhere.  This  infamous televangelist, in the past, was found to be guilty of wearing an earpiece so that his accomplices in his sound booth could feed him personal information on people in his audience while he was claiming to get personal messages directly from God.  This letter proves that, not only is he back as a regular on TV, he is also back to his old tricks. 

An Endrun Around Rom. 1 And Acts 17 - A Gameplan of YWAM by Sandy Simpson, 3/4/06
Daniel Kikawa, formerly with YWAM and now with his own organization called Aloha Ke Akua, and Danny Lehmann, Director of YWAM Honolulu have repeatedly pulled Romans 1 and Acts 17 from their contexts in order to promote IPM ideology.  I have yet to hear them, or any other leader in the IPM for that matter, teach these Scriptures in context.  Yanking Scriptures out of context is one of the first marks of false teaching. 

More False "First Nations" Teachings - On Genesis 11:1-9 (Babel) & Acts 17:18-34 (Mars Hill) by Sandy Simpson, 5/4/06
This article is written to expose another false teaching based on a misinterpretation of Scripture, namely the Genesis 11:1-9 account of the tower of Babel.

Nimrod & Babel compiled by Sandy Simpson, 5/8/06
This article is written to clarify the issue of Babel that is taught unbiblically by the First Nations Movement leadership.

WCGIP Davao Event Planned To Redeem The "Cross" by Sandy Simpson, 6/23/06
The following from the current Wiconi "Smoke Signals" Newsletter is a perfect example of why Christians everywhere need to get the word out for indigenous churches to avoid this Indigenous People's movement. This kind of teaching and demonstration is not a good witness to the world.

IPM False Teaching About The Names Of God by Sandy Simpson, 6/24/06
Danny Lehmann, YWAM Director in Honolulu and pastor at Calvary Chapel Komo Mai was on the Calvary Chapel KLHT radio station again on Friday, June 23, 2006 with another argument to try to shore up the false doctrines that he and others of the IPM, including Don Richardson, Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa, have been teaching.  Their claim is that God has many names in many cultures and can be legitimately worshipped by those names.  Lehmann argues that the proof of this idea comes from the fact that in the Bible God has many "names". 

"Blasphemizing" The Bible by Sandy Simpson, 7/26/06
The reason for this article is to detail how some of these Bible societies are mistranslating the Bible, using the names of false gods and substituting them for the One True God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel, the "I AM", YHWH, Jehovah.  In doing this they are following the agenda of the WCGIP Leadership endorsed by Don Richardson and John Dawson of YWAM, and headed by people like Daniel Kikawa of Aloha Ke Akua, Richard Twiss of Wiconi International, Terry LeBlanc of World Vision Canada, and many other indigenous leaders.

Can Rick Warren Change The World? by Sandy Simpson, 8/21/06
With the recent rash (and I use that word physically) of Rick Warren appearances all over the TV networks, touted as the man who is going to save the planet, I have finally reached my maximum saturation point.  I just want to address one statement that Warren made on Fox, though I could go into his appearnaces and what he taught in ultimate detail as I have in the past. But this one statement is more than enough to illustrate that Rick Warren is trying to change the world thought his use of diaprax and his INCREDIBLE lack of discernment.

World Christian Gathering on Indigenous Peoples (WCGIP) Report & Analysis - Davao & Kiruna by Sandy Simpson, 10/1/06
I urge anyone reading this article to also read the other articles in the WCGIP section of the DITC web site.  It will help you understand the width and breadth of false teaching in this movement. This article contains quotes from the last two WCGIP events.  What is amazing to me is that the word "Gospel" and "evangelism" (or "evangelization ... two different terms) are being used freely by the leadership and participants of this movement when it is clear they have little or no understanding of those terms from a biblical standpoint.  You cannot claim you are reaching people with the Gospel while, at the same time, teaching that God has been redeeming the Gentile pagan nations (such as we all were) through the stars, their cultures and their religions long before the Gospel ever was preached.  That is a clear denial of the biblical statements that Gentiles did not know God.  Gentiles did not have salvation, they were not worshipping God, nor did they have hope before they heard the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, no matter what Terry LeBlanc, Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa and his friends claim.

... and all liars ... by Sandy Simpson, 11/05/06
There is a lesson for all true believers in recent events.  Have nothing to do with deeds of darkness perpetrated by false brothers. Reject heresy.  Mark and avoid false teachers.

Rick Warren "Explains" Himself by Sandy Simpson, 11/25/06

Purpose Driven Hip-Hop? from an email update from Youth Alive Victoria, commentary by Sandy Simpson, 4/20/07
I received this email update from Youth Alive Victoria.  In a previous article I showed how Youth Alive promoted the Third Wave in concerts worldwide.  I also showed how they promote the use of Alpha Course.  Youth Alive continues down the road to apostasy by promoting "Purpose Driven Hip-Hop".  This shows the influence of Rick Warren's books in their organization.  IT also shows they very much support YWAM which is aa adherant and promoter of the New Apostolic Reformation.  It is my hope the parents will take this as a warning and not send their kids to be infleunce by Youth Alive!

The Letter To Laodicea Is A Warning To The TRUE Church Today by Sandy Simpson, 4/30/07
Much has been made of this passage, using it to point out what is happening today in the apostate churches around the world.  It is true that they believe they are rich in spiritual things when they are very poor.  It can be applied in one sense to the Word of Faith movement.  It is true that the "River" movement of Latter Rain teachings do think they are hot when actually they are cold. But this letter to the end times church of Laodicea is actually talking to biblical Christians who are born again.  The apostate movements of the Latter Rain, Third Wave, Toronto "Blessing", Vineyard, Brownsville "Outpouring", Word of Faith, New Apostolic Reformation, World Gathering on Indigenous People, Manifest Sons of God, Seeker Friendly, Church Growth, Emerging Church and many others have already had their lampstands removed (Rev. 2:5) because of their apostasy and have already been spit out of the Lord's mouth (Rev. 3:16).

The New Prophets And Apostles and Superstition by Sandy Simpson, 5/22/07
False prophets have always been known and identified as using divination and augury to try to set dates for certain events.  The dates they set, though they hold festivals to celebrate them, never produce the results they predict.  Their superstitious behavior and their adherence to these mythologies are one way to identify them as false prophets.

"River Flush USA" Event To Precede 7/7/7 "The Call--Nashville" reported by Sandy Simpson, 6/5/07
The Wagners, Chuck Pierce, Jim & Faith Chosa, et al have "prepared the way" so to speak by conducting an occultic event called, "River Flush, USA" where they used Native American and New Age shamanistic techniques to conduct deliverance of the midwestern and southern continental US's river systems, which they claim are being used as a "vast network and communications base for the 'prince of the power of the air' and for the second heaven principalities to legally link into the earth." 

Dominionism: The New Christian Fascism? - Is it ultimately that different from Islamic Fascism?by Sandy Simpson, 6/29/07
One of the lies those who follow heretics are believing today is the lie of Dominionism.  This false theology gets believers to focus their attention on what God has NOT ordained.  Then they are swept away in the pantheistic mysticism that has taken up residence in many churches, relying on their feelings to guide them.  At that point they are already following the enemy and don't even know it.  If they would search the Scriptures daily they would know they are a tool of the enemy.  But rather than repent they continue down the path of heresy, carrying out the ridiculous edicts of false apostles, the false prophecies of self-proclaimed "prophets", and passing along the fables false teachers make up daily to tickle the ears of their followers until their consciences are branded with a hot iron and they can no longer discern truth from error.  At that point they have given in to delusion.  When God allowed Pharaoh many chances to repent and he hardened his heart, God finally hardened it for him.  God will do the same when He ultimately sends a great delusion on those who no longer have a love of the truth.  These deluded ones will end up being the same Fascists as their counterparts in Islam.

Pre Millennial And Post Millennial Doctrines Do Not Mix by Sandy Simpson, 7/13/07
Many Christians today (having allowed themselves to be diapraxed by false teachers on TV, in books, in seminars and on tape) have begun to accept a mixture of Pre Mil and Post Mil doctrines.  Many claim they still hold to a Pre Trib Rapture (or another Pre Mil scenario) and at the same time would claim that Christians are in a great end times revival, that "Transformation" is taking place all over the world, and that our mandate is to retake dominion over the whole world including its businesses, social agendas and political arenas (a Post Mil scenario).  But what many "Christians" today do not realize is: the mixture they have accepted is oxymoronic.

Universalism in the World has Permeated the Church by Sandy Simpson, 10/12/07
We deal with these old heresies brought forward to modernity, these ideas that all men have have a relationship with God that will cause them to be able to avoid judgement in our book on the teachings of the World Gathering on Indigenous People movement called “Idolatry In Their Hearts”.  The idea that all men who worship a “god” are worshipping the true God, YHWH, has bubbled up to the very top of our societies and religions, and even Christendoom, and should sound a warning alarm to true Biblical Christianity.  Instead, as usual in our day, most Christians are asleep at the wheel while Universalists claim that you can pray to a “god” like Allah and be praying to the true Trinue God, YHWH.  I also dealt with the fact that Allah is not YHWH, both in our book and in the article “Is Allah The Same As YHWH?”. Yet just recently George Bush, a professing Christian, who has obviously been led astray by false teachers and his heretical counselors like T.D. Jakes and Ted Haggard, came out with these statements in an interview.

John Piper: Giving "license for immorality" while claiming he is not? by Sandy Simpson, 10/27/07
Not one word about Christians confessing or repenting of sin in Gutsy Guilt by John Piper. Yes Christians still sin (1 John 1:8). But the point in any true biblical exegesis of this subject is that Christians no longer practice sin (1 John 3:9) but rather practice righteousness (1 John 3:7). Those practicing sin better test themselves to see if they are in the Faith (2 Cor. 13:5). We as believers have the sacrifice of Christ for sin but we must still confess our sins and He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (which was spoken in reference to Christians) (1 John 1:9). This article is a perfect example of what Jude calls giving Christians a “license for immorality” and illustrates why 5-Point Calivinists are deceiving believers on issues like continued sexual immorality.

Paula White's Incredible False Teaching by Sandy Simpson, 10/31/07

"Hold Firmly Till The End" by Sandy Simpson, 1/10/08
The Bible is repleat with examples of both those believers who stood firmly to the end, and those that did not.  There is nothing sadder than to observe a believer in his or her twilight years wander away from the faith after having served the Lord.

Deliverance! - A Biblical Guide To Freedom From "Another Spirit" - The Possible Consequence Of The Unbiblical Practice Of "Slain In The Spirit" by Sandy Simpson, 2/08
The cases are legion.  Let's look at John (a psuedonym) as one case in thousands that I read through the years in the emails sent to my site. 

Personal "Prophecy" In The Bible? by Sandy Simpson, 2/08
The reason for this article is my contention that the modern day "prophetic movement", better known as the Latter Rain, Third Wave or New Apostolic Reformation, is promoting and practicing divination (personal prophecy) rather than what the Bible defines as true prophecy. 

Baha'i & YWAM's "Indigenous People's Movement" (IPM) - Comparison Chart by Sandy Simpson, 3/6/08 - You will notice a very close comparison in this chart between false religion and so-called "Christian" leaders.

Islamic Teachings That Prove Their Religion Is False compiled by Sandy Simpson, 4/1/08
This article presents documented proof that Mohammed was a false teacher and a false prophet ... thus the Qur'an and other Islamic holy writings by Mohammed and his followers are based are false.  More evidence that the "god" Allah they worship is a false god.  Their false religion is based on a false prophet, false scriptures and a false god.
 


LESSONS IN FORGIVENESS
Through the years I have been presented with many opportunities to forgive. Sometimes the situation was so severe that it took me some time to forgive and start the process of healing for myself, and eventually for others. I learned that a Christian needs to forgive other people even if they have not repented of their sins. That can be really hard if we let it be hard. But if we give our burdens over to the Lord, He will carry them and that frees us up to treat other people with love, compassion, and be in the right frame of mind and heart to set them up for reconciliation with Jesus Christ. That does not mean we tolerate their sin. We simply forgive them for what they have done to us, whether perceived or real, and move on to looking for ways to redeem them. We can then present to them the “truth in love” even when we have to rebuke them.

The Gospel Entrusted To The Saints by Sandy Simpson, March 31, 2008
We have a precious Gospel message to share with others.  It is the Good News that saved us and brought us peace.  We now have the hope of eternal life with Christ when before we were hopeless (Eph. 2:12).  This new life should and will motivate us to share that Good News with everyone.  But sometimes true saints lapse into a lukewarmness of complacency (Rev. 3:16).  I have done that myself at times.  It is time for the remnant, those who have not joined the Apostasy, to reach out to the world with the truth and love of the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.  But we must adhere to the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Apostles to be effective.

Is Anyone Else Tired Of The Diaprax Of False Teachers ... Or Is It Just Me? by Sandy Simpson, 6/2/08
The dialectic and praxis (diaprax) is being used by most false teachers today as a main form of commuication and teaching.  In order to bring in their grandiose unbiblical plans and get people to follow them, they have to vilify the old.  In doing so, with more and more churches and Christians following their schemes, they are actually destroying the work of the Church and missions instead of helping the situation.  What was not a squeaky wheel is now being oiled with the super glue of false teaching.  If the churches have been ineffective and even some Biblical ones have been at times, then Warren's ideas are not helping but will grind the churches to a halt by focusing their attention on social and political concenrs rather than the Gospel.  This is all part of the Dominionist mandate, not part of our mandate as true Christians. Sadly instead of the churches becoming more effective we are witnessing the demise of the churches that follow the leadership of people like Warren ... which make Christ's words even more poignant and heartrending: Lu 18:8  I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?

Why False Teachers Have So Many Followers
by Sandy Simpson, 7/28/08
The reason why false teachers, who deny one or more of the core doctrines of the Faith, gain so many followers is that they are saying what the world wants to hear.

When The Ends AND The Means Are Unjustifiable by Sandy Simpson, 8/30/08

From Church To Emerging Church

The issue of the Emerging Church and it's introduction into many churches and mission organizations has reached a critical point.  Many do not undersand what is being leavened into churches by the EC leadership.  Many would be shocked to know their belief systems involve Universalism, New Age, defense of postmodernism, Interfaithism, and many other false doctrines.  In order to reach out to this generation the EC leadership is proposing a whole new "map" to deal with what they perceive is a lack of understanding on the part of the churches on how to communicate.  EC proponants believe the "scripture" for today is evolving and must change in order to reach postmoderns. Go here for ordering details!

True Revival by Sandy Simpson, 1/2/09
We have been treated to many years of counterfeit revivals by way of Toronto, Brownsville, Lakeland led by many false teachers like John Arnott, John Kilpatrick, Todd Bentley, Benny Hinn, Rodney Howard-Browne, C. Peter Wagner, John Wimber and hundreds of others.  The Latter Rain ideas of revival are not based on what the Bible teaches is true revival at all.  They teach that revival can be staged and planned when brought to town by those who carry a transferable anointing.  I have dealt with the issue of a transferable anointing in a number of other articles proving there is no such thing according to the Bible.  The Holy Spirit is the One who brings revival, not according to the enthusiasm and orchestrations of man ... not by the will of men.  Revival can only as a result of true repentance and forgiveness.

Allelon: Unity in the Church or Unity with the World? by Sandy Simpson, 12/08
The EC promoted and taught by groups like Allelon is full of the teachings of false teachers who have introduced ideas and practices that are not Biblical.

The Fallacious Arguments of Neo-Universalists
by Sandy Simpson, 1/4/09
The new Universalists are not as vocal about their Universalism ideas but are far more deadly to the Church as they are not rejected like classic Universalists were decades ago.  The new Universalists would include Emerging Church leaders like Brian McLaren, Leonard Sweet, Spencer Burke, Alan Jones and others like Wycliffe, Society of  Biblical Literature, World Christian Gathering of Indigenous Peoples, Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa, Terry LeBlanc, Rick Warren, Henry Nowen, YWAM, Tony Campolo, Robert Schuller, George Otis Jr., and even Billy Graham.

Letter To Billy Graham by Sandy Simpson, Deception In The Church, 8/27/00 - No Answer From BGEA yet!
"I am writing this letter to you to ask you to respond to a number of statements you have made, some very recently, that are of concern to the body of Christ."  Addendum: read this response, not to my letter, but to a recent letter to BGEA in 2009.

The Zeitgeist Movement by Sandy Simpson, 3/10/09
Lest you think that the US and the rest of the world are NOT headed for global governance, let me tell you about one of a number of organizations promoting Globalism and save the planet.  The Zeitgeist Movement has been sponsoring "ZDay" events since 2008.  They have already sponsored "over 365 events in 63 nations so far." They teach that there is no government but the earth.

The Global Coherence Initiative by Sandy Simpson, 3/17/09
On the heels of my discovery of The Zeitgeist Movement I was alerted to another global movement called The Global Coherence Initiative while listening to George Nori (a radio show that is a laugh a minute though intended to be serious).  My first thought was: you have to be "coherant" in order to understand that this is the opposite of cohearnce ... it is incoherence, incongruity ... nonsense.  If those who buy into these things would become coherant they would learn a thing or two.  Any group of people who think that that science will be able to "observe changes in the earth’s magnetic field and test the hypothesis that the earth’s field is affected by mass human emotion, positive or negative" have got a collective serious screw loose.

Testing Music In The Church - Part 2 by Sandy Simpson, 3/18/09
For my previous article on testing music in the churches, go here.  Since the first article I wrote on testing music in the churches there have been developments in Christian music that are even more alarming. 

The Ugly Side Of Diaprax by Sandy Simpson, 4/10/09
There has been a concerted effort by the false teachers from many movements inside the church such as Word of Faith, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR)/Latter Rain, World Gathering on Indigenous People and Emerging Church among others to diaprax people into thinking that the church has been ineffective until they came along with their new and improved ideas on how to take over the world.  This is always a feature of the Hegelian Dialectical process put into action by praxis, thus diaprax.  In order to form a new paradigm or worldview the leadership of these movements must villify orthodox Biblical Christianity.  Let's look at some of those statements.

Updated! The Emerging Church - Introducing Heresies by Sandy Simpson, 4/20/09
But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. (2 Pet. 2:1)

"Emerging Theology" Is An Oxymoron by Sandy Simpson, 5/8/09
There was no theology presented in this lecture, per se.  The overriding theme was that the EC wants to help Christians "find God in the world" and for them to "look like Jesus".  Sounds good but what does that mean?  Does that mean going back to Roman Catholic liturgy and the Eucharist which Middendorf promotes?  Does it mean incorporating mystical and New Age practices into the churches?  Does that look like Jesus?  I think not. 

"Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura by Sandy Simpson, 5/18/09
There are a number of the leadership of the Emerging Church (EC) who do not believe that the Bible is the highest authority for the Christian faith.  Most do not believe that the Bible is inerrant in the original manuscripts and many do not acknowledge that the Bible is our highest revelation.  Yet this is a core doctrine over which true believers and false brethren must separate.

False Teachers ... REVISITED! by Sandy Simpson. ACT, 9/03/09
I often receive requests to present updated false teachings and false prophecies by the myriad of heretics out there.  We do try to keep up with all the latest.  But I have to remind people that those we have exposed as false on our site have not repented of what they have already done in the past, which is why they are still on our site.  So what they are doing now has no relevance as to whether or not they are now to be considered a true Biblical teacher.  If and when they repent, that is renounce their false teachings and false prophecies, make restitution to those they have deceived, and begin to teach sound Biblical doctrine we will give you that information.  As of now NONE of the people we have exposed have repented of their Latter Rain, Word of Faith teachings, heretical practices or their false prophecies.  But in the interest of helping you to respond to a person who inquires by saying: "Those articles are old and you need newer materials" well, here is some newer stuff you can add to the pile.  For you and me this really makes no difference, but for those who are living in deception perhaps it might demolish one of their arguments against the truth. I will only deal with quotes from 2007 through 2009 in this article.  I will not go into detailed analysis of these newer quotes in order to save space, but will present a short comment and link you elsewhere for the detailed report, if there is one.

The Intention Experiment - Wrong intentions? by Sandy Simpson, 9/23/09
The real purpose behind the Intention Experiment is to fool people into thinking they are little gods, as is the ascertion of Brown and Taggart, and to get them there through introducing them to, what amounts to, transcendental meditation and the Zeitgeist, the spirit of the air, the devil (Eph. 2:2).  It is leading to the moment of the fruition of this idea, when it has fully diapraxed enough people, when the AntiChrist will use this to make is look like humanity can get together and cause there to be peace on earth through their thoughts.  He will tell them that they are all "gods" collectively, him being the best manifestation of god, and they will believe him.  But then he will force people to worship him, thus proving that he is possessed by the false god who fell from heaven (Rev. 13:14-18).

Comments on the Rick Warren LETTER/VIDEO STATEMENT TO UGANDAN CHURCH LEADERS by Sandy Simpson, 12/11/09
Though some of the provisions of the anti-homosexuality bill are unjust and should be removed we have to understand that HIV/AIDS is a huge problem there and is being propagated and spread by homosexual behaviors as well as other methods.  Uganda is trying to find ways to protect their society against this deadly sexual disease.  Warren states that we all have "the freedom to make moral choices and our right to free expression are gifts endowed by God.".  This statement comes from his erroneous teaching on "gifts".  He has taught repeatedly on this subject in his "Purpose" series and often confuses natural gifts with spiritual ones.  Do we have the right to make choices that cause others to die of AIDS?  If the "free expression" of homosexuality is a "gift endowed by God" then why does God prohibit it in Scripture?  We are not just free to do anything we want as people created by God.  There are laws against murder, and infecting others with HIV/AIDS should be prosecuted just as any other act of murder is.  If you knowingly give someone poison and they die will you not be tried for that crime?   I have often stated that false faith healers like Benny Hinn ought to be indicted for claiming they have healed people from AIDS when he has not even checked out to see if it is true.  If you don't believe me get our video series on Benny Hinn and see for yourself:

Journey Into Wholeness or Journey Into Worldliness? - A comment on "40 Days of Reflection & Growth" (Spiritual Formation) being taught at Trevecca Nazarene University by Sandy Simpson, 12/15/09
The bottom line is that this EC type of questionnaire gets the student to look within themselves for the answer instead of to the written Word.  This can only lead to more confusion and will certainly not lead to spiritual formation.

A Whole Lot Of Wishful Thinking These Days
by Sandy Simpson, 2/5/10
In this article I want to detail a number of beliefs people have these days that have no basis in Scripture.  I am going to roam all over the map, so to speak, and try to give fairly short answers on a number of topics and also give you useful links to articles that will help you deal with any particular issue.  It is truly amazing how many false ideas people cling to without giving a thought to what the Bible has to say on the subject.

Discernment Is Essential by Sandy Simpson, 8/29/10
I want to offer a concrete suggestion on how to stem the tide of leaven coming into the churches.  I do this in light of criticism often leveled at discernment ministries that they are only interesting in criticizing.  Though we as believers are to use discernment and be critical of false teaching, comparing everything to the ultimate authority in the life of the believer, the written Word, you will find that most discernment and apologetics ministries do a very good job of offering both Biblical true teaching and practical suggestions on how to implement it.  What I am going to suggest to you is something some churches are doing but I would like to see every church do ... 

Does Daniel 10 really support the teaching of territorial spirits and spiritual mapping? by Sandy Simpson, 11/15/10
You cannot have the teaching of spiritual mapping without the concept of territorial demons, and you cannot have the idea of territorial demons without Daniel 10.  This is the "go to" story that those who teach spiritual mapping always "go to".  But does this story really support the idea of territorial spirits?  The answer is no.  If you read the commentaries on this passage you will find that, up until the mid seventeen hundreds, the commentators all focused on the human aspect of this story.  After that the commentators began to adopt the idea that it is focused on territorial spirits.  As usual the older commentators were correct.  They did not take a leap of interpretation but rather followed generally accepted rules of hermeneutics.

Updated! Leonard Sweet Quotes compiled by Sandy Simpson. 3/10
This is a page containing a number of quotes proving Leonard Sweet, probably the leading spokesman promoting Emergent Church, is a false teacher.  I will comment in blue about each quote.  The issue of Sweet being invited into many churches and Christian universities to speak has become even direr as recently he was invited to speak at a Calvary Chapel conference.

Jeremiah's Prayer by Sandy Simpson, ACT, 4/26/10
I am writing this article as an encouragement to those Christians who use discernment, especially the discernment/apologetics ministries.  This passage was an encouragement to me so I would like to pass along what the Lord showed me.  Jeremiah's prayer is reflected in our own prayers to the Lord when we find ourselves under heavy attack from the enemy and from his servants. 

Are you an under shepherd or hireling?  by Sandy Simpson, ACT, 5/9/10
The Bible lays out the definitions of both an overseer (under shepherd) and a hireling. A hireling does not really care about being a watchman, but is more concerned with protecting his reputation, position and income.  A true watchman will guard the flock against wolves from within (Acts 20:30) and without (Acts 20:29) no matter the cost to his reputation, position or income. This is a little quiz you can take to see if you are a true Biblical under shepherd as a leader in your church, are becoming a hireling, or are one now.

On Emergent Church leaders calling apologetics and discernment ministries "Online Discernment Ministries" (ODM) by Sandy Simpson, 5/14/10
It does not surprise me at all that prominent Emergent Church (EC) leadership and others associated with that movement would use name calling as a way to try to shut up opposition to their false teachings.  This is typical for Christian liberals.  Rather than answer to what they have been writing in their books and teaching on in public for years, they resort to name calling.  The term they are using lately is ODM meaning online discernment ministries.  They use that term in a disparaging way but the term itself shows that they do not know how to do research and are not interested in the facts about many apologetics ministries.

How to be "unsaturated" by Sandy Simpson, 9/24/10
I guess you think this is going to be an article about cholesterol or saturated fat.  No.  This is an article on how to get away from those who use pantheistic terms for the work of the person of the Holy Spirit and claim they can pass the Spirit to you by the laying on of hands!

Regarding the Pre-Trib Rapture argument that the Church is not mentioned after Revelation 4:1 by Sandy Simpson, 10/10/10
I am not going to start a debate on the whether Pre-Trib, Mid-Trib, Pre-Wrath, Post-Trib or other Premillennial Rapture scenarios are Biblically correct.  They all have a basis in Scripture.  Pre-Tribers, however, sometimes try to come off as if they have a corner on the market of truth.  But one of their arguments for a Pre-Trib rapture is not correct.  I have heard the argument time and again ... that a proof of a Pre-Trib Rapture is that the "Church" is not mentioned after Revelation 4, therefore proving that since the Church is not mentioned the Church is no longer on earth.

The New Indigenous "Christian" Religion by Sandy Simpson, 10/23/10
Nothing exemplifies the new indigenous "Christian" movement of people like Richard Twiss, Daniel Kikawa, Aloha Ke Akua, YWAM and other proponents so much as the following statement on the home page of the Aloha Ka Akua web site. As Indigenous people, we need to embrace God as ours, and also know that God embraces us as His. . . just as we are.  Our goal is to provide indigenous people, missionaries and Christians with information, training and materials that show the true nature of Jesus;that his way is not to be a foreign religion that destroys people groups and their cultures, but one that brings people groups and their cultures to their highest fulfillment. (Aloha Ke Akua, home page as of 10/23/10, http://akaministries.tripod.com/aloha/)

Does Daniel 10 really support the teaching of territorial spirits and spiritual mapping? by Sandy Simpson, 11/15/10
You cannot have the teaching of spiritual mapping without the concept of territorial demons, and you cannot have the idea of territorial demons without Daniel 10.  This is the "go to" story that those who teach spiritual mapping always "go to".  But does this story really support the idea of territorial spirits?  The answer is no.  If you read the commentaries on this passage you will find that, up until the mid seventeen hundreds, the commentators all focused on the human aspect of this story.  After that the commentators began to adopt the idea that it is focused on territorial spirits.  As usual the older commentators were correct.  They did not take a leap of interpretation but rather followed generally accepted rules of hermeneutics.

Is anybody else creeped out by all this talk about Obama being "God"? by Sandy Simpson, 11/21/10
Disregarding the fact that calling any man on earth today "God" is blasphemy, this tactic by the liberal media to continually attribute god-like qualities or call Obama "God" or "Messiah" should make many people, especially Christians, very uncomfortable.  The latest attempt at making Obama some kind of "god" was in the latest Newsweek of November 22, 2010. 

Harold Camping Strikes (Out) Again! by Sandy Simpson, 12/5/10
Imagine my shock when I heard that Harold Camping was up to his former tricks in predicting, using some kind of fancy numerology, that Jesus Christ will return on May 21, 2011.  I quickly thought about how I would cancel my plane reservations to speak at a discernment conference.  I mean, if Jesus is coming back then there will no longer be a need to expose false teachers because they will have met their demise along with their leader.  But then I realized, Camping is himself a false teacher and so I thought I would write this article to use on my speaking trip since I will be talking about his second failed prediction then. 

The Emergent Church Teaching On The Trinity "Loving Community" by Sandy Simpson, 12/10/10
There is a fairly new teaching in the Emergent Church (EC) on the Trinity as an example of a "loving community" thereby giving evidence that anyone who names the name of Christ is to be a loving community, in unity with "humanity".

The Truth Behind The Postmodern Emergent Church by Sandy Simpson, 1/7/11
I am quite familiar with what drives the younger generation today because it was what I had to repent of when I was a youth.  So I know the desire to try to justify yourself and what you are doing because you want to be able to continue to do those things while assuaging your conscience because so many others are doing them along with you.  I attempted some of the same tactics when I had drifted away from the Lord early in my life.  But no amount of jury-rigging the truth can change God's absolute truth.  The bottom line is that, as believers, we either have to choose to follow the foolishness of men or the wisdom of God. 1Co 3:19  For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness"; {Job 5:13}

The Handkerchief Phenomenon - Addendum To "A Whole Lot Of Wishful Thinking These Days" by Sandy Simpson, 1/24/11
There is a new phenomenon especially among some island churches where handkerchiefs are being handed around a congregation claiming that they have an anointing that can cause people to be healed and other miraculous things happen to them.   The problem with this idea is especially evident in two things: (1) that this can and is being considered by many to be Christian magic and (2) that it is being taught as being something that should be a normal part of the Christian experience.  It is taught that if you have faith you will believe in touching the handkerchief that you will be healed, freed from demons, or get a special anointing.

Good Church Choices by Sandy Simpson, 2003
This page is some recommendations on how to find a good church.  What you need to find is a church that not only has orthodox doctrinal statements but teaches, both explicitly and implicitly, in line with the core doctrines of the Faith.  These are Bible-believing Christ-centered churches that are balanced in their theology.  Be sure to test all churches before you become involved.  Here are some tips for finding a good church.

"Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the Faith" by Sandy Simpson, ACT, 3/3/11
2Co 13:5  Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you— unless, of course, you fail the test? People who call themselves followers or Christ or "Christians" and claim they are born again must believe certain things.  If they do not then they fail the test of faith.  They can claim they are born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail the test of faith there is no eternal security.  Only God knows who will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2).  God did not make an arbitrary judgment about who would be saved and who would not.  His Spirit is given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ.  We are not God and we do not have His omniscience.  Therefore we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have been opened to the Truth.  I am not saying we do not have assurance of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is always the Biblical criteria. Those who would teach must teach according to the whole counsel of God's Word. Let me be clear. There is only one way to salvation.  That is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  I will deal with a few of those issues following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.  The Bible gives this as the only criteria to be saved:  Ac 16:31  31  And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (KJV)

Hold On! by Sandy Simpson, 3/7/11
1 Tim. 4:1-2  But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron ...  (NASB) If we are to pay attention and obey the written Word we must listen to what the Holy Spirit says.  It is not I who wrote the above.  I am simply reminding Christians that in the end times some will fall away from the Faith.  Clear and simple.  This is why the Lord reminds those who claim to be His followers that we need to hold on till the end. The word for "hold on" is katecho meaning hold, hold fast, keep, possess, stay, take, have, make.  The Bible tells believers to hold on and keep what they have till the end.   But what are we to hold on to?

Signs Of Apostasy In The Church In The End Times by Sandy Simpson, 4/11
There are many signs of the great Apostasy, or falling away (2 Thes. 2:3) indicating we are living in the end times.  Mike Oppenheimer presented a number of things in his last sermon on what is going on in the world at large to indicate that we are living in the end times.  Mt. 24: 3-14  As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?" Jesus answered: "Watch out that no-one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumours of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth-pains. "Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. (NIV) I am going to go through some indications of the Apostasy in the churches as a follow up to the signs of the times in the world.  I have told you about many false prophets, false apostles, false teachers and false Christs through the years.   But who ever thought that a president of the United States would be considered by many to be the Messiah or God?

General Jerry Boykin and his ties to The Knights of Malta and Rick Joyner - Compiled by Sandy Simpson, 7/21/11
This paper exposes what General Boykin has been doing in Calvary Chapels and his associations.  He is Grand Chancellor of the Vatican's Jesuitical "Knights of Malta" (KOM swear fealty to the pope) and is involved with Rick Joyner in MorningStar, which is part of the New Apostolic Reformation.  Joyner is a member of the International Coalitions of Apostles under C. Peter Wagner, and soon to be under Chuck Pierce as Wagner is retiring.  Joyner is a long time false prophet who was a member of the original Kansas City Prophets who brought the false anointing, false prophecy and false apostleship through the teachings of the Latter Rain into many churches. 

Did God Put "Eternity In Their Hearts" or "The World In Their Hearts"? by Sandy Simpson, 8/4/11
In the introduction to Mike Oppenheimer's and my book "Idolatry In Thier Hearts" I exposed the fact that Don Richardson pulled the phrase "Eternity In Thier Hearts" to use as his book title from it's context in Ecc. 3:11.  He did this to support his thesis, which actually contradicts the second part of that verse, where it states that man cannot fathom what God has done. Richardson, rather, sets forth what has become the foundation for the false teachings of the WCGIP, YWAM, a number of Bible translation societies and the Emerging Church ... the propostion that all men have always been seeking God and that all Gentile cultures were already worshipping the true God before missionaries came with the Gospel.

Heresy by Proxy by Sherry Neese, 10/1/07
ACT Note: In light of the excuses being made by Calvary Chapel pastors as to their engaging Gen. Jerry Boykin to be the lead speaker at the How To Walk 2011 Conference at Calvary Chapel Honolulu, even though he has been working with a documented false teacher, false prophet, member of the International Coallition of Apostles under C. Peter Wagner, and member of the Knghts of Malta, Rick Joyner, I am reprinting this article as a reminder ... you bring down the cause of Christ when you associate with false teachers and false religionists. Promoters of Dominionism such as Boykin and Joyner are so far off the teachings and examples of the Bible that it isn't even funny.  There is no, I repeat, NO evidence or teaching that we are to take over the world now to advance the Kingdom of Christ.  The only way we can do help the coming Kingdom is to preach the Gospel which will establish the Kingdom in the spirits of men.  Those who truly believe and are born again are then promised to be rulers and judges in Christ's physical Kingdom that will be established at His second coming.  Till then we have a job to do and those who teach Dominionism are hurting the cause of Christ.  The early church did not try to Christianize Rome (until the third century) and we are not called to Christianize the world.  We are to be light and salt but we have absolutely NO mandate to "overthrow" the governments of this world as C. Peter Wager has dictated from his fake position as a "foundational apostle" in the modern church.  The fact that Calvary Chapel is now allowing this C. Peter Wagner agenda to be promoted among it's attendees shows that the apostasy is in full swing.  They have been warned repeatedly by a number of people by letter, face to face, by phone, by emails and by many articles.  But since a certain group has responded in a belligerent way every time they are warned it is time to warn people away from those CC churches participating in this deception that constitutes a falling away from true biblical teaching.  Guilt by association?  Yes, Calvary Chapel is now guilty of that and in fact is guilty of guilt by cooperation.

A Response To "An Urgent Message From Peter" by Sandy Simpson, 8/20/11
This is my response to the email from C. Peter Wagner attempting to explain why the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement is not a cult.  From my perspective he digs himself in deeper by showing the lack of substantiation from the Bible for what the NAR promotes.  Following you will find the full text of his email and my comments.

A Tale Of Two Kingdoms by Sandy Simpson, 8/31/11
Be careful of those who teach about a "kingdom" that is not the same as what the Bible teaches. There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today. Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is being promoted all over the place.  I am warning Christians that they need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom". Biblical Christians need to understand that many of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Emergent Church, Church Growth, Word of Faith and other related movements are operating under a paradigm shift.  Because of that when they use the word "kingdom" they do not have the same biblical concept of that word that biblical Christians do.  Whether purposely or under the influence of the Zeitgeist, the "new breed" paradigm shifters use the word "kingdom" in order to lure people into their Dominionist/social gospel worldview.  They know that most Christians love to hear about the "kingdom" so they act like they are talking to them in the unity of the Faith.  But they are not. This is an old trick of the false teachers and cults.  They redefine certain words so that when they talk to biblical Christians they can sound like they are on the same page.  For instance, the New Age cult called "Unity" did this years ago with many Christian terms and was able to lure in some people on that basis. Once you lure them in then you slowly brainwash them away from their former understanding of those terms into a new paradigm. The first concept is called Kingdom "Kingdom Now (KN)" and the second we will call "Kingdom Come (KC)".  "Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven" (Matt. 6:10).  KN claims this prayer is about Kingdom Now.  Biblical Christians understand this is referring to the Kingdom being first established in the spirits of born again believers (Col. 1:13) and finally physically established in the Millennial Kingdom of Christ when He returns (1 Cor. 15:24), since the dominion over the earth currently has been temprarily given to the devil (Luke 4:5-8, Eph. 2:2). 1Jo 5:19  We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.

Defending Apologetics by Sandy Simpson, 9/7/11
Why is it that "Christian" leadership, when documented as having taught false teachings or having done unbiblical things publicly and then those things are exposed publicly, have a conniption fit?  They berate those who want to warn them and others not to teach falsely and want you to contact them personally or want to have a private meeting to talk about it.  But then if you do contact them personally or have a meeting all you meet with is "attitude" and nothing gets changed.  What is the use of that?  Why do people who may have been true biblical teachers turned false teachers assume they have the right to air what they do in public but those who refute do not have the same rights?

Episode 43 - November 2011, Sandy Simpson: The New Apostolic Reformation
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. – 2Corinthians 11:13 Sandy Simpson, of the Apologetics Coordination Team, joins me to discuss the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). Sandy runs Deception in the Church, an extensive library of resources on the NAR and related movements and organizations. Sandy does a fantastic job of describing in just an hour a movement that really needs many hours to really understand properly. It is my hope that this episode will inspire people to dig deeper to learn more about the New Apostolic Reformation and the unbiblical practices that go on within the movement. Please check out the show notes and visit the additional resources section. The New Apostolic Reformation is a dangerous movement that is carrying many Christians away from orthodox, Biblical practices. This episode is available to stream or download here.

A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS
Kingdom Now or Kingdom Come?
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today. Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is being promoted all over the place.  I am warning Christians that they need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom".

Updated! "Blasphemizing" The Bible by Sandy Simpson, 7/26/06 - In view of recent developments with SIL and Wycliffe, I thought it would be appropriate to remind you of what has been happening for many years with a number of Bible translation societies.

Do The Truths Of Ezekiel 13 Still Apply Today? by Sandy Simpson, 3/1/12
God is going to bring down the false global religion that is already here consisting of ecumenism, interfaithism and false teachings and prophecies of all kinds, just as He promised to break down the whitewashed wall the false prophets built up to deceive Israel.  God will ultimately protect both His Church and those who actually belong to it who have not been turned aside by myths and false teachings. Do you think this chapter still applies or is it ancient history?  Let me illustrate how these timeless truths apply just as much today as to when God had repeatedly told Israel they were headed for captivity if they listened to the counsel of false prophets.  God has warned us ahead of time that we of the end times churches will see a falling away and many will be deceived.

Resources For Pastors by Sandy Simpson, 6/17/12
This article was originally written and published in my Pacific Waves Newsletter Volume 2, Issue 1 - March 2002 sent out to hundreds of pastors and church leaders in Micronesia.  It contains recommended resources as well as those that are not recommended.


"Blasphemizing" The Bible
by Sandy Simpson


This DVD is a message based on this article.

I am going to go over an article I wrote back in 2006 in preparation for the book I wrote with Mike Oppenheimer called “Idolatry in Their Hearts”.  This book is an apologetic against the false teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People movement, the Emerging Church and the New Apostolic Reformation which got their ideas from the book “Eternity in Their Hearts” by Don Richardson.  At the time that book came out no one really saw the dangerous ideas Richardson was promoting.  All they would have had to do was look at the two subtitles of that book to understand the implications.  The first subtitle in the 1981 edition read: The Untold Story of Christianity among Folk Religions of Ancient People.  Those who read this book found some interesting cross-cultural ideas but apparently missed the false premise of the book starting with the subtitle. How could Christianity be “among folk religions” where the Gospel had not been preached (Rom. 10:14-15)? At that time Christians who read the book were apparently satisfied that, though there was some questionable material present, it made for an interesting discussion on how to do cross-cultural ministry. The subtitle it has today, which was first published in 1984, is as follows: Startling Evidence of Belief in the One True God in Hundreds of Cultures Throughout the World.  This should have been a red flag for many Christians but then, who reads subtitles?  But how could the “One True God” be known to Gentiles who, the Bible states, did “not know God”.

Resources For Pastors
including
"Good English Bible Translations"
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

I was talking with a pastor after a Wednesday night service and he mentioned that I said I had done an article comparing English Bible translations.  He called me up later and asked me to come back and present the contents of that article I sent out in about 2002 to my mailing list for the Pacific Waves Newsletter which, unfortunately, I can no longer afford to publish and mail.  However an archive of past issues of that newsletter can be found here. In that article I detailed a number of good and bad resources for pastors including Bible translations, concordances, commentaries, Bible dictionaries, etc.  I present an edited version of part of that article on this DVD, particularly dealing with English Translations of the Bible.  Translation is a very detailed endeavor and should only be undertaken by those with a proper education in that subject and a sound doctrinal background.  I read a few books on that subject and it helped me understand the complexities involved.  Hebrew is a rich language so it is hard to distill one Hebrew word down to one English word.  Greek is a very technical language and it is also not easy to translate.  This is why it is imperative to use the good English translations out there for comparison along with a good concordance and Bible dictionary.

Examine Yourselves & Hold On!
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on the articles "Examine Yourself To See If You Are In The Faith" and "Hold On!"

2 Cor. 13:5  Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.
Do you not realise that Christ Jesus is in you— unless, of course, you fail the test?

People who call themselves followers of Christ or "Christians" and claim they are born again must believe certain things.  If they do not then they fail the test of faith.  They can claim they are born again all they want and "once saved, always saved" but if they fail the test of faith there is no eternal security.  Only God knows who will be saved, from beginning to end, because of His foreknowledge and omniscience (Rom. 8:29, 1 Pet. 1:2).  God did not make an arbitrary judgment about who would be saved and who would not.  His Spirit is given to those He foreknew, when convicted of sin by His Holy Spirit, would choose to believe and commit themselves to Jesus Christ.  We are not God and we do not have His omniscience.  Therefore, according to Paul, we must be sure our belief system is in the right place once our eyes have been opened to the Truth.  I am not saying we do not have assurance of salvation, but our assurance comes not only because of His Atonement and promises of salvation but from our continuing in the Faith, which is always the Biblical criteria. Those who would be Bible teachers must teach according to the whole counsel of God's Word.  Let me be clear. There is only one way to salvation.  That is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.  I will deal with a few of those issues following, but it is important to recognize that being saved is not just a matter of believing that Jesus lived, or that He was a man, or simply giving mental ascent to His existence in whatever form.

Listen!  Episode 55: November 2012, Sandy Simpson: The New Apostolic Reformation - Part 2
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are kravenous wolves." - Matthew 7:15 A year ago, for the November 2011 episode, I interviewed Sandy Simpson on the New Apostolic Reformation. Sandy heads up the Apologetics Coordination Team, and runs Deception in the Church, an extensive library of resources on the NAR and related movements and organizations. This episode is a follow-up to our previous discussion. We began with the assumption that those listening have heard the first discussion we had. If you haven't, that episode can be found here. We answer some questions people had from that episode, get into some further examination of the New Apostolic Reformation, and try to keep from repeating what was already covered as much as possible.

A Trip To Hell? by Sandy Simpson, 11/8/12
I am writing this article to expose yet another “trip to hell” story making the rounds on the web.  There is a PowerPoint presentation about it and people who get it are being urged to forward it to ten more people.  Before I get into commenting on this story, which is quoted in full from the PowerPoint, I need to help you understand how to discern these types of stories.  One of the most important ways is to compare what is said with what the Bible teaches, both in the actual account of hell we have there as well as comparing it to what the Bible teaches doctrinally and about Jesus Christ.  The full text of the PowerPoint is in red while my comments are in black. 

Updated 2012! Is anybody else creeped out by all this talk about Obama being "God"? by Sandy Simpson, 11/21/10
Disregarding the fact that calling any man on earth today "God" is blasphemy, this tactic by the liberal media to continually attribute god-like qualities or call Obama "God" or "Messiah" should make many people, especially Christians, very uncomfortable.  The latest attempt at making Obama some kind of "god" was in the latest Newsweek of November 22, 2010.   Check out the 2012 updates to this article!

2012 Was Not The Apocalypse! But When Is It? by Sandy Simpson, 1/1/2013
When asked by a number of people if the Mayan prediction was going to come true for the end of the world to occur on 12/21/12 my answer was “What makes you think the Mayans could predict the end of the world if they could not even predict their own demise?”  Likely they simply ran out of space in the scribbling of their calendar on their cave walls.  But is there any reliable source of information about when the Apocalypse will occur?  Yes there is.  The Bible prophecies have been accurate all through history so it is our only source of reliable prophecy regarding the end times.  If you want information on how close we are to the end you need look no further than what Jesus told His disciples when asked that very question in Matthew 24.

The Question Of Dominion by Sandy Simpson, 2/13/13
I am writing this article as an apologetic against the Third Wave, Latter Rain, Word of Faith and Reformed Theology teachings that the Church is to rise up and take over the systems of government, businesses and every other aspect of life.  "See, the problem is, is that Satan has had too much of his way in our society because he has a government!  And the only way to overthrow a government is with a government.  It won’t happen otherwise.  So therefore the government of the church has to get into place in the extended church just like we do have it very well in place, we haven’t reached our goal yet ..."  (Transcript of C. Peter Wagner, Arise Prophetic Conference, Gateway Church, San Jose, CA, 10-10-2004)  Wagner has substituted the "government of the church" for the coming government of Jesus Christ in the Millennial Kingdom.  Wagner is "Kingdom Now" while the Bible teaches "Kingdom Come".


Testing Music In The Church
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on these articles: Testing Music In The Church, Testing Music In The Church-Part 2, and Worship Song Ratings.

Too many churches today are allowing music to be used in their services that is not glorifying to the Lord and can actually be a hindrance to the teaching of sound doctrine. Pastors and leaders should be using their leadership role to test what is being played and sung in their churches. Though some are quick to test preaching and teaching from their pulpits, many ignore the music being used in the same services. This is a tragic mistake. Music is a powerful medium. It is something that effects deeply the body, mind and emotions. It is a proven fact that music often stays with a person far longer than what is taught or preached. Songs roam around in our heads, especially if the melody appeals to us. What is often overlooked is the serious impression music makes on people, and the teaching they are getting over and over again as they allow the song to repeat in their minds and on their lips. Music teaches things much more subtly yet sometimes far more effectively. That's why the lyrical content of music in the church, as well as its effect on the spiritual lives of those who perform and listen, should be vigorously examined by the leaders of the church.  This is a 2-DVD set.

Shepherd Or Hireling?
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on the article: "Shepherd Or Hireling?"

The Bible lays out the definitions of both an overseer (under shepherd) and a hireling.  John 10:11-13  I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep. The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. (KJV)  1 Tim. 3:1-3   Here is a trustworthy saying: If anyone sets his heart on being an overseer, he desires a noble task. Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not given to drunkenness, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. (NIV)  Titus 1:7-13  Since an overseer is entrusted with God's work, he must be blameless—not overbearing, not quick-tempered, not given to drunkenness, not violent, not pursuing dishonest gain. Rather he must be hospitable, one who loves what is good, who is self-controlled, upright, holy and disciplined. 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. For there are many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision group. They must be silenced, because they are ruining whole households by teaching things they ought not to teach—and that for the sake of dishonest gain. Even one of their own prophets has said, "Cretans are always liars, evil brutes, lazy gluttons." This testimony is true. Therefore, rebuke them sharply, so that they will be sound in the faith. (NIV) A hireling does not really care about being a watchman, but is more concerned with protecting his reputation, position and income.  A true watchman will guard the flock against wolves from within (Acts 20:30) and without (Acts 20:29) no matter the cost to his reputation, position or income. Following is a little quiz you can take to see if you are a true Biblical under shepherd as a leader in your church, are becoming a hireling, or are one now.

UPDATED! Islamic Teachings That Prove Their Religion Is False compiled by Sandy Simpson, 4/1/08
This article presents documented proof that Mohammed was a false teacher and a false prophet ... thus the Qur'an and other Islamic holy writings by Mohammed and his followers are based are false.  More evidence that the "god" Allah they worship is a false god.  Their false religion is based on a false prophet, false scriptures and a false god.  This update includes pictures in the article.  Stay tuned for this article to be released on DVD.

How close are we to the Second Coming? by Sandy Simpson, 5/27/13
Matt. 24:34  "I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened." This verse from Jesus' famous exposition on the destruction of the temple and what would happen to precede the end times and His return has intrigued many through the generations.  But it is not until this generation that it's meaning has become clearer.


"Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura
by Sandy Simpson


This DVD is a message based on this article: "Christians" Who Try To Poke Holes In Sola Scriptura

There are a number of the leadership of the Emerging Church (EC) who do not believe that the Bible is the highest authority for the Christian faith.  Most do not believe that the Bible is inerrant in the original manuscripts and many do not acknowledge that the Bible is our highest revelation.  Yet this is a core doctrine over which true believers and false brethren must separate. Those who try to poke holes in Sola Scriptura make excuses like (1) we need to reinterpret the Bible through the lens of postmodern culture and religion (2) the Bible never uses the words "Sola Scriptura" therefore it is not a Biblical concept (3) there is new revelation for the church through the Holy Spirit apart from what is written and the precepts of the Bible and (4) the Bible just doesn't address our postmodern situation therefore we cannot rely on it for the truth and answers for our problems today.  I will prove that all the above arguments, and more, from EC leaders and others is exactly what they are teaching.  I will give you quotes from their teachings, videos and books. The postmodern church and its "movements" are abandoning Sola Scriptura in their rush to be like the Roman Catholic Church, which takes its authority from a mix of Scripture and tradition. 

"As a result the Church, to whom the transmission and interpretation of Revelation is entrusted, "does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the holy Scriptures alone. Both Scripture and Tradition must be accepted and honored with EQUAL sentiments of devotion and reverence." (Roman Catholic Catechism, Given October 11, 1992, the thirtieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, in the fourteenth year of my Pontificate. Page 31).

The Missionaries Brought A Foreign God ... DUH! by Sandy Simpson, 7/7/13
There is a repeated charge by adherents of the Word Christian Gathering on Indigenous People movement and Emerging Church that Christian missionaries brought news of a foreign god to most of the world.

"... this Christian concept of god ... is really something that was here (in Hawaii) from the very beginning"-Wayne Cordeiro, transcript of Connecting Point television interview of Daniel Kikawa by Wayne Cordeiro, July 15, 2005
Cordeiro states that Kikawa is a “respected scholar” and at the end wishes them the very best as “we continue to educate people of the true origins of faith in Hawaii.” Frankly some of the worst scholarship I have ever run into apart from the Transformations films by George Otis, Jr. are the books and materials put out by Kikawa.  Cordeiro is stating that they will work together to educate people of the true origins of faith in Hawaii” when Kikawa’s claims are, by in large, fraudulent.  This kind of information along with a whole host of other false teachings are being passed along in Cordeiro’s churches and school as well as in the Worlc Christian Gathering on Indigenous People conferences.

"Monotheism" in Ancient Cultures is virtually non-existent by Sandy Simpson, 7/22/13
In conclusion, this puts the matter to rest about the claims that the religions of the world have always been monotheistic the further back in time you go.  Hogwash!  People who make these claims need to learn from anthropology, archeology and especially from the Bible!

Catholic Syncretism Forms The Basis For The Teachings Of The World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People Movement (WCGIP) by Sandy Simpson, 8/2/13
The teachings of the WCGIP and their source materials by people like Richardson and Kikawa constitute a new radical syncretism that is leading to the one world false religion of "the woman who rides the beast" (Rev. 17:6-8).

The History Of The Knowledge and Worship Of God by Sandy Simpson, 8/9/13
I have written this study as a further refute to the claims of people like Don Richardson, Daniel Kikawa, Danny Lehmann of YWAM and many other World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People (WCGIP) advocates.

Updated and Reposted! General Jerry Boykin and his ties to The Knights of Malta and Rick Joyner - Compiled by Sandy Simpson, 7/21/11 - This article is being reposted because some of the Calvary Chapel leadership involved in organizing the upcoming conferences refused to discuss the issue of Jerry Boykin being invited again to speak at both the "How To Walk" and "End Times Outreach" conferences in 8/13 at Calvary Chapel Koko Mai in Oahu, Hawaii.  What Boykin has been involved with is not "guilt by association" as at least one CC pastor continues to repeatedly claim, but clearly guilt by participation and proclamation of Dominionism and Kingdom Now theologies of the Latter Rain.  This paper exposes what General Boykin has been doing in Calvary Chapels and his associations.  He is Grand Chancellor of the Vatican's Jesuitical "Knights of Malta" (KOM swear fealty to the pope) and is involved with Rick Joyner in MorningStar, which is part of the New Apostolic Reformation.  Joyner is a member of the International Coalition of Apostles under C. Peter Wagner, and soon to be under Chuck Pierce as Wagner is retiring.  Joyner is a long time false prophet who was a member of the original Kansas City Prophets who brought the false anointing, false prophecy and false apostleship through the teachings of the Latter Rain into many churches. 

Don Richardson’s “Heaven Wins” - The “Inclusivist” Heresy & Richardson’s Background With commentary by Sandy Simpson, 9/18/13
Inclusivism: Whereas Exclusivists regard general revelation as informative only and special revelation as both informative and salvific, Inclusivists, by contrast, regard general revelation as both informative and salvific and special revelation as even mere deeply informative and even more effectively and widely salvific!

The First Nations Movement
Deceiving The Nations!
4-DVD Series


Critical Missiological Issue!

The "Indigenous People's" (IPM) or "First Nations" movement is an unbiblical movement teaching heresies and doctrines of demons. It is being spread worldwide by YWAM, Don Richardson, John Dawson, Richard Twiss, Terry LeBlanc, Daniel Kikawa, Danny Lehmann and many other adherents. The IPM or World Christian Gathering On Indigenous People is full of the false teachings of the Third Wave, New Apostolic Reformation (NAR), Word-Faith, Dominionism, Latter Rain and many other false theological systems.  But it does have it's own distinctives that are driven by the works of Daniel Kikawa, Richard Twiss, and Don Richardson in particular.  They are teaching Christians to "redeem" their cultures by worshipping their former gods, pretending they are YHWH.

Testing The Spirits by Sandy Simpson, 9/6/13
Sometimes I really wonder if someone who claims to be a Bible believing pastor, for instance, refuses to listen to the truth.  It frankly boggles my mind.  I don't know if it is as a result of the postmodern paradigm or just that they have no love of the truth left.  I don't know how that can happen in a truly regenerate person.  You would think that the Holy Spirit would confirm the truth to them, first in their conscience, and finally through the written Word.  But these days it is a miracle if it gets that far.  I don't know if their conscience has been so seared that they don't hear the Spirit or if they just don't want to know the truth because then they would be responsible for it.  I know that I cannot know their motives or the reasons why they reject truth and refuse to talk about false teaching, but I do know one thing.  We are called as true believers to test the spirits.  We must do this even if the result is not to our liking or befuddles us as to the reasons.

Four Books That the Enemy Has Used To Corrupt Christianity by Sandy Simpson, 9/9/13
Four men changed the world into their postmodern, communist, evolutionist, materialist, Narcissistic concept of reality.  There are also four books that have corrupted Christianity worldwide. 

Statement On Jacob Prasch by Sandy Simpson, 10/5/13
I am writing this note in response to recent charges that Jacob Prasch is a "gnostic" because he uses Midrash.  Let me state for the record that Jacob is not a "gnostic" by any stretch of the imagination and his teachings abundantly prove that, as well as his statement of faith.  He also does not exclusively use Midrash to interpret Scripture but as one tool in the arsenal of exegesis.  You can read the article on his site called How To Do An Exegesis as proof of what I am saying.  Those who make these charges against Jacob have neither read this article nor his statement of faith.  The ridiculous older article forwarded to a number of discernment ministries railing against Midrash is ill informed on that subject and should be ignored.  Jacob has helped many Gentile believers to understand the Jewish mindset when it comes to the Scriptures which is desperately needed.  He has been a champion of correct exegesis and proper Biblical hermeneutics for decades.  He was one apologist who helped many of us to understand the falsehood and dangers of the counterfeit revivals and Third Wave movement.  Jacob has been indispensable to the churches which is why I am proud to call him a friend and mentor and why my ministry is now affiliated with his.  I am very saddened by this attack on Jacob and would like to encourage those who are doing it to cease and desist and learn to focus on the myriad of serious issues facing the churches these days.  Get back to work on apologetics and stop putting down a man who has helped so many people and will continue to do so into the future.  I would like to advise all the discernment ministries to stop this infighting and go back to the task at hand.

Questions For Those Who Claim The "Supreme Beings" Of The Nations Are The True God by Sandy Simpson, 10/14/13
I have some questions for those of the World Christian Gathering of Indigenous People (WCGIP) adherents such as Don Richardson, Daniel Kikawa, Richard Twiss (deceased), Terry LeBlanc, Danny Lehman, Aloha Ke Akua, YWAM as well as many in the Emergent Church (EC) ... the questions arise from their claim that the "supreme beings" of the nations are all the True God, YHWH, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  You can read more on this subject in our book "Idolatry In Their Hearts" or in the WCGIP section of my site. 

Glitter Christians by Sandy Simpson, 11/21/13
This is a name I came up with for people attending and teaching at Oral Roberts University in the 70s.  Even back then I had come to realize that their way of representing Christianity was not in line with the Scriptures.  At that time I didn’t know that Oral Roberts was carrying on the Word of Faith traditions of New Thought practitioners such as Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland, Essex Kenyan, Norman Vincent Peale, Robert Schuler, and many other false teachers of the time.  Though I didn’t know anything about Word of Faith or New Thought then I knew that the way they were representing Christianity was just not right somehow.  Their desire to portray Christians as rich, beautiful, healthy, perfect, and virtually sinless (holiness) went directly against the example of Jesus, the Apostles and the early church. 

Colin Brown claims God is "Rebooting the Church" by Sandy Simpson, 12/9/13
When I read the title of this issue of the ElijahList, it made me really angry.  The title was ""Rebooting" the Church: Changing Times and Changing Seasons".  I immediately asked myself the question: Is it a good thing to "reboot" the Church?  Revival is a good thing when it is based on repentance (Acts 3:19). But this is not what Brown is talking about. He is talking about "rebooting". When you reboot a computer you turn it off and on again, erasing any programs running, making a fresh start which sometimes works on computers and sometimes does not (for example when there is a virus in the computer - pun intended!). It is a good thing to return to our first love of the Jesus Christ and the Gospel (Rev. 2:4-5). But this is also not what Brown is talking about. And how could he? The churches involved with the false apostles, false prophets, false teachers of the New Apostolic have already had their candlestick removed long ago. They can keep rebooting themselves in their occult "slain in the spirit" 24/7 and it will not bring repentance and refreshing. It will only strengthen the delusion they have put themselves under and that God is allowing on them as a condemnation.

Chuck Pierce Invites Christians To "The Banqueting Table" by Sandy Simpson, 12/17/13
Chuck Pierce, the new head false apostle of the New Apostolic Reformation, formerly under false apostle C. Peter Wagner, has just announced on the ElijahList that he wants to "invite each of you to COME TO THE BANQUETING TABLE on January 2-5, 2014 at the Global Spheres Center in Corinth, Texas!"  This is a call for people to sign up for yet another conference of false apostles and false prophets, but the ad sounds like he is inviting people to the "Marriage Supper Of The Lamb".  You may find that idea absurd until you listen to these people "declaring" things "from the heavenlies".  In another December 16, 2013 issue of ElijahList Pierce states that they are going to "Rend the Heavens and Let Prophetic Revelation Fall!"  These people are so deluded that they think they are in the place of God.  But when I saw that Pierce is inviting people to this "banqueting table", which always includes "slain in the spirit", false prophecy and lying declarations, I was reminded of the following passage ...

Is Dominionism Working? by Sandy Simpson, 12/18/13
Since the counterfeit revivals of the mid 80's there has been a claim by many Latter Rain /Word of Faith groups that the church is going to take over the world, taking control of the governments, businesses and every other aspect of life. Movements such as the Toronto "Blessing", Brownsville "Outpouring", Word of Faith, New Apostolic Reformation, Emergent Church, and many other related Latter Rain movements have been claiming that they are making radical changes in people's lives due to miracles, prophecies, dead raisings, and growing numbers of people attending mega churches. So by now, in 2014, we should be seeing the effects of this wonderful scenario that the false apostles, false prophets, false teachers, and false Christs of these movements have predicted. Where is the actual proof that Dominion IS is working?

Night Marchers and UFOs on the Big Island by Sandy Simpson, 1/13/14
With the resurgence of the old religion of Hawaii and the continual invocation of Pelé and other "deities" for years in the secular culture and even in churches with regards to worshipping 'Io, is it any wonder that those beings are beginning to manifest again?  In a story called "Night Marchers" on the Kawaihae site and in a YouTube video on the same subject, eyewitnesses claim all kinds of sightings that they think are the warriors, ancestors and demi-gods of Hawaii coming back.  Interestingly the first book the Hawaiian Heritage site recommends in its "Suggested Reading" list is "Perpetuated in Righteousness" by Daniel Kikawa that we reviewed in our book "Idolatry In Their Hearts" by Sandy Simpson and Mike Oppenheimer. Since Kikawa claims that 'Io is the True God and one that the Hawaiians worshipped in secret, we have to wonder if Kikawa also thinks 'Io is showing up in these night marches? Since YWAM, Aloha Ke Akua and Hilo New Hope participated in worshipping 'Io at the "edge of Hale-ma'uma'u Crater" it sounds like they have all been inviting the old "gods" to return to Hawaii.

"They Will Believe The Lie" by Sandy Simpson, 1/16/14
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 "The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness." This has always been an interesting passage to me for a few different reasons.  What is “the lie” that is talked about here in verse 9?  What are the ways that “wickedness deceives those who are perishing” and how long has this been going on or does this only begin to happen at the coming of the lawless one?  In what way does “the lie” cause those who do not believe the truth to “delight in wickedness”?

Replacement Theology On Steroids! by Sandy Simpson, 2/13/14
The teachings of the New Apostolic, Emergent Church and World Christian Gathering of Indigenous People are promoting both Inclusivism and a new, radical, Replacement Theology.  It is therefore imperative that true believers get away from these false teachers who are teaching utter heresy and stand up for the truths of God’s Word before all mission work is lost.

One of Satan’s Final Masquerades by Sandy Simpson, 2/22/14
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. Satan often disguises himself with the purpose of deceiving people.  One way in which I believe he is putting on a masquerade is by appearing as “Mary” to millions of people worldwide


Four Books That the Enemy Has Used To Corrupt Christianity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

The four books that have changed the church by giving an introduction to the false teachings of the New Apostolic/Latter Rain (NAR), the Emerging Church/Contemplative/Catholic Mysticism (EC), pragmatic Church Growth (CG) methodologies of C. Peter Wagner, Robert Schuller and Peter Drucker, and the teachings of the World Christian Gathering on Indigenous People (WCGIP) are as follows:

 These four books were widely read by Christians from virtually every denominational background before their ramifications and the movements they would spawn were known.  They lay error alongside truth so were considered not to be a threat to churches.  Therefore these books then became part of the consciousness of many Christians and churches, thereby laying the basis for the introduction of the modern day false teachings of the NAR, EC, CG and WCGIP that have become part of the landscape of Christendom today.

"They Will Believe The Lie"
by Sandy Simpson


This DVD is a message based on this article.

I am doing a Bible study right now on what I would call "renewing our minds".  It is based on this verse:

Romans 12:2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.

The only way to renew our minds is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, confess our sins, and be saved, then to study the written Word and allow the indwelling Holy Spirit to teach us.  Our minds are corrupted by virtue of the sin nature and what we have learned in life because our filters are off. I gave an illustration of straining coconut to make coconut milk.  If you use a 1 inch screen everything will pass through.  Even if you use a quarter inch screen you will get mostly coconut meat in your milk.  You have to use a fine screen in order to separate the milk from the leftover.  Our filters are off and the first thing God begins to do is correct our worldview, because if your worldview is off you will not understand God's reality.  We need to learn to see things from His perspective.  This is why I started this study by going back to an original problem.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.

This has always been an interesting passage to me for a few different reasons.  What is "the lie" that is talked about here in verse 9 and 11?  What are the ways that "wickedness deceives those who are perishing" and how long has this been going on or does this only begin to happen at the coming of the lawless one?  In what way does "the lie" cause those who do not believe the truth to "delight in wickedness"?

We need a firm foundation to weather the storm of false ideas by Sandy Simpson, 4/15/14
Matthew 7:24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock." "How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord, Is laid for your faith in His excellent word!" © 1787 Joseph Funk & Robert Keene.  A house built on the rock will stand.  The Rock is God and in particular, Jesus Christ.  Therefore His written Word is the teachings of the His Holy Spirit and a Rock we can depend on.  Anyone who wants to prove anything theologically, historically, scientifically or anything else needs to start with correct information.  If you start with a faulty foundation, as you build your arguments, they begin to fall apart because they are not supported in God’s truth.  If you want to build on a firm foundation, you need to start the process by a careful study of God’s Word in context of the verse and according to the whole counsel of God’s Word.  The Bible is the best commentary on the Bible. There are many false ideas floating around out there that have been there, some from long ago.  Those ideas were formed in lieu of God’s Word, not from it.  I am going to give some examples of false ideas in history, science and theology and show how they could have been avoided if the Bible had been consulted.  Yes, the Bible is accurate for more than just theology.  Keeping it in context we can accurately understand history, science and a whole host of other subjects.

Karma (by any other name) by Sandy Simpson, 5/1/14
Given the definitions of “karma” above, this same idea, usually without the reincarnation aspect in Christian circles, has been taught for decades in New Thought movements such as the Positive Thinking/Positive Confession teachings of Norman Vincent Peale & Robert Schuller, the Word of Faith ideas of Essex Kenyan, Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland and Benny Hinn, the mixture of Eastern Mysticism and Christianity by Korean false teachers such as the “force of faith” Paul Yongii Cho, and newer renditions and fusions by people like Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince, T.D. Jakes (recently agreeing with Oprah Winfrey who teaches karma on her WHO network), and others such as Ernest Angley, John Bevere, Markus Bishop, Juanita Bynum, Morris Cerullo, Kim Clement, Paul Crouch, Creflo Dollar, Jesse Duplantis, Marilyn Hickey, Brian Houston, Rodney Howard-Browne, Larry Huch, Bishop Eddie L. Long, Clarence McClendon, Joyce Meyer, Myles Munroe, Steve Munsey, Mike Murdock, Rod Parsley, Peter Popoff, Fred Price, Oral Roberts, R.W.

Those Who Do Not Lead Christians to Maturity by Sandy Simpson, 5/11/14
Eph. 4:12-14 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.
Heb. 5:13-14 Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. But solid food is for the mature, who by constant use have trained themselves to distinguish good from evil.

Samy Tanagho - Evangelism using the wrong god by Sandy Simpson, 5/12/14
I need to provide some background to this article.  I first heard Samy at our Calvary Chapel church in Pearl Harbor.  I was shocked to hear how he is “evangelizing” Muslims.  I subsequently found out that his book was endorsed twice by Chuck Smith and that he was stating, although played down at that time of 11/07, that he prayed to Allah.  I then sent the following email exchange I had with Samy to Chuck Smith and later someone handed a physical copy of it to Bill Stonebraker of CC Komo Mai.  Not only did I not receive a response from Chuck Smith or anyone in his office (too late now) I was also shocked to hear that Samy has now been invited to speak at Calvary Chapel Komo Mai while Stonebraker is in Israel conducting a tour.  So all of this fallen on deaf ears.  After you read what Samy said I think you will understand the seriousness of this issue, especially since both Smith and Stonebraker have declared many times that Allah is not God.  Why then do they continue to allow Samy access to their churches if they still believe that Allah is not God? 

Generic and Specific - Two reasons why the Bible translation societies, putting the names of supreme beings in Bible translations, is unbiblical by Sandy Simpson, 5/18/2014
In my article “Blasphemizing the Bible” I give a number of examples of how a lot of modern Bible translation societies are putting the names of “supreme beings” in the Bible in the place of God or YHWH. In this article I'm going to examine two of the excuses they make for making those substitutions in the Bible in many hundreds of different languages today. (1) They claim that God has many different names and therefore they think they are justified in putting the names of various gods of various cultures in Bibles, as long as they are considered “supreme beings”.  (2) The second excuse they give is that the names of the “gods” they are placing in the Bible are generic terms for God, like the words “God”, “Theos”, “Dios” and “Elohim”.  By generic I mean a word that can be used for any deity whether of the one true God or other false gods who claim to be God. 

Using Illustrations from Culture To Help People Understand Jesus Christ Can Be A Good Idea … Getting People to Worship False Gods Is Not by Sandy Simpson, 5/29/14
Cultural illustrations can be helpful but only if taught in the light of the true accounts in the written Word.  Putting cultural accounts on the same par as Scripture by using the mythology of pagan nations to replace what needs to be taught about Jesus Christ and the True God degrades the Bible accounts, in fact blasphemizes them.  There is only one Name under heaven by which men may be saved, and there is only one Name of God, revealed by God Himself.


"... and all liars"
by Sandy Simpson


This DVD is a message based on this article.

Lying is a problem for all people (Ps. 116:11).  We are all sinners (Rom. 3:23).  Those of us who are Christians are "sinners saved by grace" (Eph. 2:8) indwelt by the Holy Spirit in our "new self" (Col. 3:10). But we still live in our "old self" which we must "put off" (Eph. 4:20-25) by taking up our cross daily and following Christ (Luke 9:23).  The difference between unbelievers and those who are truly born again is that believers no longer "practice sin" (1 John 3:9, see my Bible study on 1 John!)  They have the indwelling Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:11) who convicts them when they lie (John 16:8). True believers then repent (1 John 1:9) and go on to "practice righteousness" (1 John 2:29) with the Lord's help.  The unregenerate, the false brothers, or those who have fallen away (Gal. 5:4, Mark 4:17), practice lying.  They practice a lifestyle of lying because their consciences are seared (1 Tim. 4:2) and the Holy Spirit, when convicting them, cannot break through the hardness of their unrepentant hearts (Eph. 4:17-19, Heb. 3:13).

“He was a murderer from the beginning” by Sandy Simpson, 8/14/14
John 8:44  You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Revelation 21:8  But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Revelation 22:15  Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.


Those Who Do Not Lead Christians to Maturity
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

The Scriptural definition of maturity is to learn to discern truth from error so that the Christian will no longer be double minded, blown about by every wind of teaching and by the schemes of crafty people.  But the problem today is that so few Christian teachers are feeding their flock's solid food.  They are serving up milk and, because of that, people are starving. Yet they often don't even know they have been on a starvation diet.  Amos 8:11 "The days are coming," declares the Sovereign Lord, "when I will send a famine through the land -  not a famine of food or a thirst for water, but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord."

Mark Driscoll Kicked Out Of His Own Organization by Sandy Simpson, 8/18/14
Driscoll was kicked out of the Acts 29 Network church planting group, his own organization, for his “ungodly behavior”.  “Seattle megachurch pastor Mark Driscoll has been removed from a church-planting network of more than 500 churches he helped found after a pattern of “ungodly and disqualifying behavior.” (Religion News Service, by Sarah Pulliam Balley, Huffington Post, 8/9/14)  His behavior is not the only problem with this guy.  Check out his false teachings and behavior over the years.

Replacement Theology On Steroids
by Sandy Simpson

This DVD is a message based on this article.

So, as you can see, the root of this teaching is that Israel no longer holds the distinction of being the tree from which the Root of David (Jesus-Rev. 5:5, 22:16) came.  They are no longer the “natural branches" (Israel-Rom. 11:21) on to which Gentile Christianity (the wild shoots-Rom. 11:17 or wild branches-Rom. 11:24) are grafted in (Rom. 11:17-24).  According to Replacement Theology, Christianity has now become its own branch apart from Israel (the natural branch) that produced the Root and all the promises of the Bible to Israel have been taken away from them and given to the Gentile Church.  This is why you hear so many false teachers taking verses out of context from the Old Testament and willy-nilly applying them to the Gentile Church.  This methodology has been going on for decades in liberal churches and has been popularized by many false teachers on TV. But the fact is that Replacement Theology is utter false doctrine.  It denies promises made to Israel, some of which have already been fulfilled and some which are yet to come to fruition. But when you add the fact that the Inclusivist WCGIP proponents are now saying that God planted hundreds of different trees, cultures all over the world, that are not connected to the natural branch, tree and Root, you have what can only be termed Replacement Theology on steroids!

“His Name, the only Name” by Sandy Simpson, 9/5/14
Zechariah 14:9 "The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name." What are the implications of this prophecy in Zechariah?  (1) That before the return of Christ there have always been many “gods” worshipped in many names.  (2) That the saints who return with Christ (Zechariah 14:5), those who were Raptured, are the ones who had already believed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Those remaining are forced to acknowledge that there is “no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” because they were left behind in the Rapture and survived the Tribulation.

Victoria Osteen – the “response” that shows she is a typical false teacher by Sandy Simpson, 9/8/14
It never ceases to amaze me how people who claim to be “Christian” leaders are apparently NEVER able to admit when they are wrong.  Makes you wonder if they are born again because acceptance of the Gospel will cause a person to repent of their sins which then gives them access to the forgiveness of Christ when they sin from that point on (1 John 1:9).  But be that as it may, Victoria, the “co-pastor” and wife of Joel Osteen, fires back at the article in the Christian Post entitled: “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 claiming they lied about what she said.  She claims in her statement back to them in the article called “Victoria Osteen Chides Critics: I Didn't Mean Parishioners Shouldn't Worship God … That's Ridiculous” that they claimed that she said a person should not worship God. 

Leviathan by Sandy Simpson, 9/22/14
This study is up for interpretation but I find descriptions of leviathan in the Bible fascinating.  This creature that existed, and may yet exist, is used as a description of the might and power of the enemy.

Karma (by any other name)
by Sandy Simpson


This DVD is a message based on this article.

According to Wikipedia: 

"Karma means action, work or deed; it also refers to the principle of causality where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual.  Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering.  Karma is closely associated with the idea of rebirth in some schools of Asian religions.  In these schools, karma in the present affects one's future in the current life, as well as the nature and quality of future lives - or, one's samsara. With origins in ancient India, it is a key concept in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Taoism, Shintoism, Ching Hai and others."(emphasis mine)

Mirram-Webster defines it this way: 

the force created by a person's actions that is believed in Hinduism and Buddhism to determine what that person's next life will be like: the force created by a person's actions that some people believe causes good or bad things to happen to that person

Given the definitions of "karma" above, this same idea, usually without the reincarnation aspect in Christian circles, has been taught for decades in New Thought movements such as the Positive Thinking/Positive Confession teachings of Norman Vincent Peale & Robert Schuller, the Word of Faith ideas of Essex Kenyan, Kenneth Hagin, Kenneth Copeland and Benny Hinn, the mixture of Eastern Mysticism and Christianity by Korean false teachers such as the "force of faith" Paul Yongii Cho, and newer renditions and fusions by people like Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince, T.D.

Transported by the Lion of Judah by Anne Elmer - Reviewed by Sandy Simpson, 10/31/14
Sometimes I can’t hardly believe the advertising for books like this one on ElijahList.  It stated: This is one of the most amazing AND TRUE stories I've ever read and it's by a person I know well. My wife and I stayed in Anne Elmer and her husband's home in France. When she shared her story, I KNEW it had to be a book. Anne agreed and our readers have spoken by purchasing so many copies of this amazing narrative about what REALLY HAPPENED TO HER as THE LION FLEW HER THROUGHOUT THE EARTH! (ElijahList newsletter, 10/30/14) This illustrates the lack of integrity on the part of ElijahList in calling this story a “true story”.  Where is the proof, any proof that this actually happened?  This is another instance where ElijahList freely promotes trips to heaven and hell as factual, but now it has stepped this myth-telling even further with a trip God took a woman on all over the world!
