 Holy Ghost IGNORED!
by Sandy Simpson 
This 3-DVD set is a message based on this movie review.
"Holy Ghost Reborn" is the second film in the "Holy Ghost" series released by Bethel Church in Redding, CA.  Tim Wirth and I reviewed the first "Holy Ghost" film and that review is freely available on YouTube here:
I am sorry to say this but Bethel is clearly a cult of Christianity holding to most of the teachings of the Latter Rain and Word of Faith.  They have demonstrated repeatedly a manipulative atmosphere targeting young people in particular while preaching rank heresy.  This new film is a continuation of those false teachings and practices.  I pray for the young people in that church that they will come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior and thus come to know the true Holy Spirit. 

Please check out the Addendum to the series "Holy Ghost IGNORED!".  Tim Wirth and I discuss a number of other issues with Bethel Church and Bill Johnson.

Larry Crabb's recent remarks perfectly illustrate the "fruit" of contemplative spirituality - a move away from the Gospel and personal salvation through Jesus Christ and a move toward an emerging, ecumenical all-paths-lead-to-God kind of mentality. Where did Christ or the disciples ever say man's greatest need in in the development of communities?

The Key to being able to teach both Predestination and Free Will
by Sandy Simpson, 5/14/16 ACT Logo 2

When I was in college one of the favorite all night jam sessions was the Predestination vs. Free Will debate.  We would stay up all night and never resolve the problem.  Though I was a Christian I was somewhat immature at the time and had not learned the principle of not imposing manmade constructs on the Scriptures (eisegesis) but rather letting the Bible interpret itself (exegesis) since it consists of the Word of God as breathed by the Holy Spirit (2 Tim. 3:16) through the prophets, Apostles and of course, the Word incarnate, Jesus Christ.  There is a famous saying that states: "A text, out of context, in isolation from co-text is always a pre-text."  It certainly was a "pretext" for our lengthy useless arguments on this subject.

Yes, Bethel Redding and Bill Johnson are part of the New Apostolic Reformation
by Spirit of Error, 5/16/16 Spirit of Error

Following Christianity Today's recent cover story on Bethel Church in Redding, California, I've been contacted by people wondering about Bill Johnson's statements made in that article distancing himself from the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). The two specific statements he made are that his church does not have any official ties to the NAR and that he's "not completely clear on what it is." Despite Johnson's distancing himself from the NAR, he very clearly is part of it. Let's look at his two claims.

I want to preface this study of church history by telling you how I am going to do it.  I am going to cover three areas.  First are the dates and brief descriptions of the genesis of world religions not related to Christianity.  Second are the dates and brief descriptions of the beginnings of movements that call themselves "Christian" but are really false Christianity because they teach against one or more of the core doctrines of the Church.  Lastly I will deal with the dates and descriptions of the True Church through history to show that God has always had a faithful remnant.
