Apostacy in the Church – Part 2

Apostacy in the Church - Part 2

Apostacy in the Church

By Allan Rasmussen

In our last edition, we exposed
the lifestyles and doctrinal error of several high-profile
so-called Christian ministries. Unfortunately, this was just the
‘thin end of the wedge’ and we continue with part 2
this month.

Sadly today, Christianity has
become a minefield when one is wanting to hear truth. It is so
evident these are the last days and as Jesus said, many will be
deceived. Paul said they will turn away their ears from the truth
and shall be turned to fables, doctrines of devils and seducing
spirits which wax worse and worse till the coming of the Lord.
Never before in history has there been such an array of options
and opinions as to what Christianity is all about. This is caused
mostly by the lack of sound doctrine. This has come about because
we said theology was a waste of time and had no relevance to
faith, and so we became a madly driven body of believers, all
chasing feeling and emotion rather than faith and doctrine. Now
as the masses of what once was Christianity, topple over the edge
of a precipice of folly, we dare to ask why.

JOHN HAGEE

He has the largest listening
audience of any other conservative preacher. This has been gained
by his reputation as being one of the leading Bible teachers on
End Times, even though we at Omega Times believe he has got the
cart before the horse with regard to the timing of Tribulation
events. Getting the cart before the horse may very well be a
newly acquired habit for Hagee.

Why? Well he now is teaching his
new found doctrine that Jews do not need salvation through
Christ
. He simply cannot be in possession of the same Bible
we read. This is just another heresy from yet another
Televangelist which is causing the western church to lurch toward
disintegration and disarray.

TODD BENTLEY

The reports of what is happening
in Lakeland, Florida at Todd Bentley’s meetings has the
Christian Church enthralled. It seems we are desperate to accept
anything that seems to be a move of God. Yet the Church is guilty
of throwing discernment out the window and allowing wolves to
feed on the flock.

How else would you describe these
goings-on in Lakeland, Florida. Bentley himself is weird. As a
Christian, just 2 years ago, he covered himself in body tattoos,
and body piercings, in direct rebellion to the admonition in
Leviticus regarding these things, Bentley, it seems, knows
better. This has everything to do with the Goth and Emo cultures
and nothing to do with the Holy Spirit. The fact that God
specifically forbids body marking shows a spirit is operating
here and it is NOT the Holy Spirit!

Todd Bentley teaches in his
conferences how to experience guided visualisations of the Third
Heaven. These guides are spirits. The New Age calls them
"spirit guides.’ We call them ‘demons!’ Is
this a Healing Revival we are seeing here? Consider this. People
are healed in Spiritualist Churches. There is no immediate or
discernible difference between faith healing by mediums and
healing by the Holy Spirit. However, the counterfeit healing soon
begins to go wrong or something far worse comes on a person.

Bentley says he has an
"Angel" called Emma who speaks to him and guides him,
which he claims belonged originally to the discredited William
Branham. No prizes for guessing what this angel really is! Yet
thousands are flying around the world to get this "new
anointing" and take it back to their own Churches by the
laying on of hands. On a personal note, I was demonised when I
came to Christ. Praise God He set me free, and God has turned bad
to good, for through this I am able to discern and see the
difference. Therefore I have no desire to receive another demonic
impartation. Once in my life was once too often!

Run for your life from this latest
attempt by the enemy to deceive the Church and derail the real
faith of many.

PAUL CROUCH

Where does the Christian go who is
perhaps sick or housebound when even Christian Television is
smeared with apostasy? Many have noticed that TBN is REALLY
trying to make a connection with
their Muslim audience. Paul Crouch was on TBN a while ago telling
the "precious Muslim viewers" that he was reading their
"holy book", the Koran, and encouraging the viewers to
read the Bible. Anyone who has studied Islam for any length of
time KNOWS that there can be no bridge between the two faiths.
The true Cross of Christ creates a huge chasm, not a bridge.

Crouch, the founder of Trinity
Broadcasting Network, has his own personal problems, associated
with cover up and denial of homosexual exploits with his
limousine driver. For his silence in the matter Crouch allegedly
paid him off with a cheque of nearly half a million dollars.

JUANITA BYNUM

Then we have the farcical Juanita
Bynum pantomime portrayed so lavishly as the ideal of every
Christian woman acted out before the world, contrary to what the
Bible teaches us. Bynum’s publicised million dollar wedding
to Bishop Thomas Weeks (who already had one failed marriage)
revealed the ugly underbelly and foolishness of Christian
celebrity superstardom as it now dissolves in accusation and
threats. Yet the foolish devotees to this stupidity, continue to
worship at their feet and perpetuate this insanity.

"Prophetess Bynum looked like
a 21st century princess prepared for a royal coronation,"
said Joyce Rodgers, an evangelist with the Church of God in
Christ, who travelled from Texas to attend the wedding. Other
guests included Texas televangelist John Hagee, who assisted with
the ceremony, and an eight-member camera crew from the Trinity
Broadcasting Network (TBN). Would someone ask Hagee and the
superstar preachers what they think now that the marriage is
over. Bishop Weeks publicly blames the devil for beating Juanita
Bynum.

If that is not outrageous enough,
this letter from Bynum’s lawyer shows it is all about money
- Dear Bishop Weeks: As you may know, I represent Dr. Juanita
Bynum, Flow Records and Juanita Bynum Ministries. It has come to
our attention that certain recordings which embody the voice and
ministry of Juanita Bynum are presently being marketed, promoted
and/or sold. In the absence of any written agreements conveying
the right to use and commercially exploit Dr. Bynum’s name,
likeness and voice any such use of those recordings is
unauthorized.

This communication shall serve as
a formal notice to CEASE AND DESIST from the further manufacture,
promotion, marketing, sale, advertising or exploitation through
any medium of recordings which embody Dr. Bynum’s voice and
any materials which contain her photograph failing which she will
have to examine legal remedies. We ask the question, "What
about the Biblical command of not taking a brother to law?"
The trouble with most of these people is that it is all about
money and self, and not about righteousness, holiness, and the
Word of God!

Here are some transcribed notes
from a Juanita Bynum TBN telecast as further proof of money being
the driving force.

• "You need to send a
thousand dollars. If you can’t send a thousand, send five
hundred… if all you have is a nickel, wrap it in tissue
and put it in an envelope. If all you have is your clothes, send
them."

• "If you want the
power
, you have to sow the seed.

• "We’re going
together into a spirit of wealth."

• "I need [you to give]
because I need favor. I need it because I need an
anointing
. I need it because I need power.’

• "You’ve got
three days to get that into your mailbox. I’m not afraid to
say this. I am walking in my authority … if you
don’t postmark it by the tenth, we will not accept it.
[I’d like confirmation of that - Ed ] God says you
have three days to get your thousand-dollar seed in the
mail."

• "Give it to me and
you will live. (what heresy!!! Ed)

• "If all you have is $79.36, I double-dare you to
empty your bank account. Close your account."

ARCHBISHOP DESMOND TUTU

The primate of the Anglican Church
in South Africa is well known world wide through his efforts in
opposing apartheid and promoting self-determination for the black
population. Not so well known is his affinity with cuckoo-clocks
and apostasy, shown by his antichrist ramblings.

Tutu has said that Jesus death set
in motion a unity that knows no boundaries. No one is an outsider
– Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Atheist, all are
held in a Divine embrace because God has no enemies
. This man
is a "shot’s eye" for a leading role in the
Emerging Church, where all religions come under the same umbrella
of heresy.

KATHERINE JEFFERTS SCHORI

The newly elected leader of the
Episcopal Church in the USA. Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori,
said she believed homosexuality was no sin and homosexuals were
created by God to love people of the same gender.

Jefferts Schori, former bishop of
the Diocese of Nevada, was elected as the first woman leader of
the 2.3 million-member Episcopal Church. the U.S. branch of the
worldwide Anglican Communion. She has already taken office.

T D JAKES

What finally amazes me is that the
great TD Jakes is accepted as being the authority on biblical
issues and yet no one questions his belief and heretical teaching
and belief concerning being and ardent advocate of Jesus only
theology (a denial of the long held Christian belief of the
trinity)

T. D. Jakes grew up in a Oneness
Pentecostal denomination which denies the essential Christian
doctrine of the Trinity (The Oneness Pentecostal denomination was
declared a heresy by the Assemblies of God when it took
organizational form in 1917).  

The doctrine of the Trinity is a
foundation stone of our faith and Christian doctrine. If a person
denies the Trinity they are in fact labelling themselves as
heretics by this very belief.  This is not a trivial matter, so
why will Bishop Jakes not be open about this rather than hiding
his personal views from those he ministers to by TV?  If he
believes that the Trinity as defined in the Athanasian Creed is
not scriptural, why not just say so publicly?

We at Omega Times ask the
question our subscribers must also be asking - Where will this
all end?
