What SRN is Not
Helping people understand what we don't do!
By Chris Lawson
To the Reader,
Thank you for taking the time to read this brief statement.
This page has been placed here simply to express that as Bible believing Christians we love all people regardless of their religion, age, sexual orientation, skin color, or ethnicity. It is spiritual deception, abusive spirituality, and persistent sinful lifestyles that the Bible, and we, do not endorse.
We do believe that God, through His Son Jesus Christ, can deliver anyone from the power of sin and death.
The primary Scripture that our ministry is based upon comes from a heart of love and concern for others:
"And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ. Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God." (Philippians 1:9-11)
What SRN is not
For what SRN is, please see our About Us page. For what SRN is not, please continue to read below.
As Christian individuals and as a ministry we have no desire to mock, belittle, poke fun at, or harass anyone. Our main concern has to do with proclaiming the biblical Gospel and exposing the doctrines, teachings and belief systems that are contrary to the Bible and Jesus Christ (i.e. those that pose a threat to general human welfare, the human soul, and the human spirit). If our website of research articles come across as being arrogant, abrasive, harsh or demeaning please know that this is not our intention. Writing about the issues that we do and addressing numerous problematic issues in the church is not an easy thing to do, especially when so many views within the church collide. Our intention is to help people, not create unnecessary divisions in the church. If you feel that any of our material is abrasive and could be worded better, please let us know which articles/webpages that you are concerned about and we will consider updating them. See our contact page for Feedback. Thank you!
Mankind's problem is sin. Because of sin human beings are separated from God who is Holy. Because all have sinned, all deserve death - we have all broken God's holy Law. For all of us, our only hope and salvation can be found in and through the Substitionary atoning work of Jesus Christ on the cross, and his subsequent burial and resurrection from the dead. Jesus has overcome sin and death! He offers the FREE GIFT of salvation to all who will believe in Him and trust in Him alone for salvation.
Our sincere desire is that people would come out of false, abusive, deceptive and spiritually harmful belief systems. And in doing so, be delivered from the power of sin and brought into a right relationship with God through the Person and work Jesus Christ. We all need the Gospel and we all need to be saved from our sins.
The ministry of SRN seeks to convey a gracious, loving, patient and kind demeanor, online and as well as in person. Flippant arrogance, a know-it-all kind of attitude, and web content that creates unnecessary division amongst Christians is not our style. We are simply trying to love people and speak the truth in love, as the Bible admonishes.
If you happen to come across any pages or articles on our website where any text seems to display something "un-Christian" in its tone or presentation, please let us know and we will consider changing it. We ask for your help in this manner to show that we care about people and that we also care about how we represent Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world.
SRN not to be confused with the Spiritual Emergence Network (SEN)
Spiritual Research Network (SRN) is not to be confused with the Spiritual Emergence Network (SEN). SEN is also known as The Center for Psychological & Spiritual Health (CPSH), http://www.cpsh.org/ . This organization exalts Kundalini power as part of the transformational processs to spiritual enlightenment.
Our Spiritual Research Network websites (www.spiritual-research-network.com and www.spiritualresearchnetwork.com) expose Kundalini power and other occult practices that attempt to counterfeit the Person, nature and work of God the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit as found in the Bible is one-hundred percent diametrically opposed to occult manifestations referred to as Kundalini arousal. According to Hindu occultists, arousing the Kundalini power is the aim of all yoga. Kundalini is also known as the serpent power of Hinduism.
Many people who have fled from occult practices and belief systems have found true healing and salvation through the biblical Jesus Christ. Spiritual Research Network exposes Kundalini as it really is, satanic power that enslaves people, drives them away from the biblical Jesus of Nazareth, and destroys them.
Spiritual Emergence Network ( http://www.cpsh.org/ ), also known as The Center for Psychological & Spiritual Health (CPSH), encourages people to work through Kundalini manifestations as if they are part of the journey to enlightenment.
In actuality, Kundalini arousal is a form occult enlightenment, It has absolutely nothing to do with true spiritual enlightenment, healing and salvation of the soul. Rooted in philosophies given by familiar spirits through demonic inspiration, Kundalini power defiles the soul and leads to eternal destruction.
The Bible is clear about such things; hence the reason we expose them.
"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)
