Lighthouse trails published the below article pointing out that John MacArthur favorably quotes Dallas Willard a Contemplative Spiritualist. It is important to note that Dallas Willad was a Southern Baptist and his theology was Calvinistic. He says,
“If you were to get to the bottom of my theology you would find me pretty Calvinistic” — http://www.dwillard.org/articles/artview.asp?artID=92
So why is John MacArthur quoting Contemplative spirituality so favorably? Because the roots of Calvinism are ESOTERICAL and founded by the known murderer John Calvin.

Crazy in Love with Jesus
– The Mosaïek Church in Fairlands, Johannesburg and the Moreleta Park Dutch Reformed Church in Pretoria are rapidly becoming veritable lift-off pads for all kinds of strange fire to be unleashed on the unsuspecting South African ecclesiastics. In 2010, when they hosted Tony Campolo as guest speaker, I wrote a comment on my blog “Waak en Bid/Watch and Pray” (May 4th 2010) warning them that Mr. Campolo, is a Universalist par excellence who believes that Jesus Christ is mystically present in all people even though they may not know it. Like Brian McLaren who believes that Christianity and Islam are compatible, Tony Campolo is of the opinion that mysticism (the core doctrine of the Emerging Church) is the catalyst between Christianity and Islam. Tony says:
“We cannot allow our theologies to separate us” (speaking on the relations between Muslims and Christians).
“It seems to me that when we listen to the Muslim mystics as they talk about Jesus and their love for Jesus, I must say, it’s a lot closer to New Testament Christianity than a lot of the Christians that I hear. In other words if we are looking for common ground, can we find it in mystical spirituality, even if we cannot theologically agree, can we pray together in such a way that we connect with a God that transcends our theological differences?” (Tony Campolo, EVANGELICALS AND INTERFAITH COOPERATION, An Interview by Shane Claiborne).

Andrew Strom and J Lee Grady – False Teachers waiting for the Spiritual Revival of the Roman Catholic Church
Andrew Strom has tried desperately to play the role of the ‘good guy’. But I have repeatedly shown him up for what he is; just another false teacher. See here: Andrew Strom, Revival School, John the Baptist TV.
Now Andrew Strom sent out this newsletter written by Lee Grady from Charisma Magazine. Charisma Magazine (owned by Stephen Strang) and Lee Grady are part of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR). In fact Andew Strom is also part of the NAR but he will plead differently, yet his doctrine and fruit tell you otherwise.
Andrew’s website logo is that of FIRE, we know that Biblically the Holy Spirit is not fire, see my articles here: The Biblical Holy Spirit vs.The False Unholy Spirit of Fire and here: Fire of The Holy Spirit – Judgment or Anointing?

“JUIG,” the Afrikaans edition of “JOY” published an interview with Stephan Joubert in May this year in which he reflects on his faith. JUIG/JOY” is a South African Christian magazine which is based on “True life, True people and True Christianity” and a slogan taken from Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer in John 17: “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth” (John 17:17). AND YET, Stephan Joubert said the following inappropriate thing about the Bible on his blog “Echurch Radically” sometime ago:
“Leonard Sweet, world renowned futurist, theologian, author, speaker and the guru of those who seek God’s plans in new, meaningful ways, including myself, refuses to use the term retraite or retreat. He’ll immediately tell you that Christians never retreat. We advance. Therefore, the gatherings that he hosts at his island and mountain homes are called advances!
Christians shouldn’t turn back to the Bible or the church. Then we’re heading in the wrong direction. We move forward to God. We advance” (Emphasis added).
Brian McLaren said exactly the same thing during his visit to South Africa in 2009 when he was invited to be one of the keynote speakers at the Amahoro Conference from 8 to 12 June.
