So, what Journey or Path are you on?
Television and other media have been pushing the words ‘journey’ or ‘path’ onto unsuspecting public. TV adverts and personalities are constantly speaking about ‘the journey they are on’, or ‘they have chosen to take a different path in their life’, or ‘the journey they are on at that moment is this and that’.
For example, a lady being interviewed on TV says to the audience, ‘I am working my way up the corporate ladder and I see this as a new journey in my life’ or ‘I am becoming a mother really soon and I see this whole experience as a journey.’
Lets look at what some famous people are saying: » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
The Church Stephan Joubert is Building
What kind of church is Stephan Joubert building? The more I read Stephan Joubert’s articles on his sites (ekerk and echurch) the more evident it becomes that he has no confidence in the One who said,
And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Matthew 16:18).
No one in his right mind can miss the meaning of his words “I will.” It simply means that “He will” and
not “you will” or “they will” or “we will.” All the other “wills” besides His “I will” usually make a huge mess of things.
Think of it: The One who created everything and still upholds all things by the word of his power (Hebrews 1:1-3), is the very same One who said “I will build my church.”
Note carefully, He did not say “I will build . . .” the Dutch Reformed Church, the Reformed Church, the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of the Latter Day Saints, the Lutheran Church, the Anglican Church, the Apostolic Faith Mission Church, the Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches, the Emerging Church or any of the other 33 000 so-called Christian churches in existence today. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »
Which Steps Have You Taken to Aid World Transformation?
Business, leadership, networks, churches, planting, communities, transformation, growth, change. This is all we hear lately. So I wondered if there was any correlation between the Seven Transformations of Leadership — (David Rooke and William R. Torbert – Harvard Business Review) and my Action Steps toward Enlightenment and World Transformation. — (Deborah from wwww.discerningtheworld.com)
So I drew up a table taking the Seven Transformations of Leadership from David Rooke and William R. Torbert and then I did a comparison with regards to mankind’s growth into New Age Spirituality. William Torbet promotes New Age Spiritual transformation. The outcome of my comparison is not at all surprising.
Colossians 2:8-10 8 See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ. 9For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form, 10and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority
Please note that I have written my column called the Action Steps toward Enlightenment and World Transformation from the perspective of someone who wants to transform the world under a false Christ. As you will see the first level is a level for those who refuse to transform i.e., born again Christians: We are considered narrow minded and a hindrance to World Transformation. At the bottom of this article I then have a short summary.
The Bible verses I have included show how levels 2-7 levels are detestable before God.

If you’re unable to deal with issues of Bible doctrine this article will be disturbing in two ways; to those who follow such teachings and to those who hold to the Word of God correctly and are repulsed by distortions.
Kim Clement’s Biography
Kim Clement was born in Uitenhage South Africa in 1956. Kim remembers his parents telling him he would be a classical pianist. His first music lessons were at the age of five. Clement describes his family as nominal Christians who believed there was a God; they did not go to church except for an occasional wedding or funeral and celebrating Christmas. They did not read the Bible or pray as a family. » PLEASE CONTINUE READING HERE »

Rick Warren’s New Health and Wellness Initiative Could Have Profound Repercussions on Many
Just ten days after Lighthouse Trails posted its last and most important article of 2010, Rick Warren’s “Apologetics” Weekend Should Apologize for Representing “Another Gospel,” we must issue this Special Report regarding a year-long event that will be kicking off at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church on January 15th.
Near the end of 2010, Rick Warren announced that Saddleback Church would be entering “a Decade of Destiny.” He told his congregation that they would be focusing on several key areas, one of them being “health and wellness.” The “Daniel Challenge” or the “Daniel Plan” is Saddleback’s new health “initiative.” On Saddleback’s website, it states:
