The Alpha Course - An Evangelical Contradiction

Let us first open this overview of the Alpha Course with several passages in Scripture that warn us of the wolves that will enter the church looking to pervert the Gospel and introduce falsehood. We must always measure everything by the plumbline of God’s Word because without that, deception awaits.


2 Peter 2:1-2 tells us:


But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.


1 John 4:1 tells us to “try [test] the spirits” to see if they are from God; and 1 Timothy 4:1 says:


Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.


That verse should cause every believer in Christ to be increasingly sober-minded and vigilant. Read more!

Faithful Ministers Versus False and Corrupt Ministers

A Brief Overview with Compiled Resources

By Chris Lawson

In an age of mass confusion as to what a "Christian Minister" actually is and does, the following compilation is

Leviticus 10 - Nadab and Abihu

given in order to help clarify what the Bible teaches about what a biblical "minister," or "servant" is, and does, as opposed to what false, corrupt and deceitful ministers are and do.


In the church today, many people say a minister needs an extra special "laying-on-of-hands impartation" (holy-laughter-type) in order to receive an "anointing"  in order to "minister" to people.  Some proclaim they are "God's Generals," "Super-Apostles," and  apostles of what false prophet/false teacher C. Peter Wagner has coined as the New Apostolic Reformation."   Others say they are "Boiler-room" prayer warriors (Mike Bickle - IHOP), "Prophetic-prayer" Christians, "Healing-room ministers," "Warfare-prayer soldiers," "Anointed-ones," "visionaries," "seers," "prophets" who have "word's from God," "synergistic-teachers," "Christian Intuitives" (occultism), "Christian "Reiki Masters" (occultism), "Christian Therapeutic Touch practitioners" (occultism), Christian "healers," "Christian yoga ministers" and more.  Many also who believe in the false teachings of the Dominionist Latter-Rain movement are claiming to be a part of "Joel's Army."  Christians as "Joel's Army"?  The army of locusts described in the book of Joel is actually a judgment from God, which is very clear as one reads the text - in context - in the book of Joel.  Read more...



The Defiling Influence of Spirit Contact

"Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards,
to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.” LEVITICUS 19:31

By Chris Lawson


We are living at a time where contact with the spirit world is commonplace. Even in many Christian settings, where spiritistic activity and occult literature are condemned, “messages” and so-called “words from God” that have been communicated to humans by fallen angels (and peoples’ vain imaginations) are misleading people on a grand scale. Furthermore, the amount of heretical practices and material that countless ministries and leading names in the Christian bookstore industry, create and promote, both locally and globally, is staggering.


God has warned, but who is listening?

Simply put, what we are seeing transpire in our age is part of the great spiritual deception that Jesus and his apostles warned about nearly 2000 years ago. With 21st century computer technology and numerous forms of digital media, one can catch a glimpse of the current global apostasy within a matter of minutes. Massive amounts of documentation reveal that people en masse have fallen prey to spiritual deception because they have failed to do what the Bible says. God commands Christians to “try [test] the spirits [to see] whether they are of God” (1 John 4:1), yet many Christians don’t seem to have a clue what this means. Read more...
