A blogger at The Last Hiker has done some research and found a few unsettling facts about the beliefs of one of the producers of last year’s television event called “The Bible Series” and the new “Son of God” movie. Anyone assuming that Jesus Christ will be accurately portrayed in this new movie needs to consider that producer Roma Downey has been on television with psychic Jonathan Edwards talking to her deceased mother, partnered with him in a book he wrote, and listens to books on tape by new ager Eckart Tolle.

Read about it here:

The “Son of God” Movie Is NOT What We Think–Do You Know The Voice of Your Master
http://thelasthiker.wordpress.com/2014/02/23/the-son-of-god-movie-is-not-what-we-think-do-you-know-the-voice-of-your-master/

Even so, America’s favourite pastor Rick Warren has partnered with LifeWay Christian Resources to put together a “Son of God” movie Bible study[1] and is buying out entire theatres to show this film, saying, “I want every other faith leader in America to do the same. Whether you can buy out a whole theater, or just one screen, now is the time to show up.”[2] These other ‘faith leaders’ include T.D. Jakes, Joel Osteen, Pat Robertson, Bill Hybels, Leith Anderson, Erwin McManus, Paula White, Christine Caine, George Wood, Crai Groeshel and some Roman Catholic cardinals and archbishops.[3]

Be careful whose voice calls you to cross the faith bridge to see the new Son of God. They may be leading you to another Jesus.

CHRISTIAN COLLEGE BRINGS DALAI LAMA’S BUDDHIST PRACTICE, “LOJONG”

Addressing visiting guest, the Dalai Lama,” as His Holiness, Emory University is the latest college to abandon Christ by embracing Eastern religions for the sole purpose of uniting the world toward global peace. In its class, Secular Ethics 101, instead of looking at ethics and morality through a purely worldly way apart from Christ, the college has found a more universal way to get everyone on board: Eastern meditation through a Buddhist practice, “Lojong.” Lojong is simply guided meditation that instructs students to, ”Find the consciousness you had before you were born” and “Treat everything you perceive as a dream.”

Recently the Dalai Lama himself came to address the university…

Heretical Swindler Yongee Cho Convicted of Financial Corruption in Korean Court
moriel.org

For years following publication of his demonic book “The Fourth Dimension” Moriel has warned of David Yongee Cho , the Korean pastor who combines Kenneth Copeland style word-faith heresy with Oriental Shammanism and occult visualization techniques claiming “Buddhists and Hindus have known his formula for centuries but now Jesus Christ has revealed it to him”. Cho’s ‘formula’ is the bogus notion of Eastern mysticism that the human imagination is one’s spirit. His corrupted pseudo theology was a combination of “blab it and grab it” of the money preaching tele-evangelists, gnosticism, and Shammanism.

Many ignorant and un-discerning people in the West were impressed by Cho due to the size of his church when in fact anyone who has spent much time in Hong Kong or Macau realizes that there are far larger visualization cults in Asia than his.

Cho received a three year custodial sentence but the jail time was suspended (allegedly under social and political pressure) while his son will be imprisoned in the $21 million scam that illegally overpriced stock and sold it to the church, defrauding the congregation Cho pastored, in order to recover personal losses from another equities deal.

No one should be surprised. Most heretical preachers are swindlers and always have been.

If your life was spared by a Bible that blocked a bullet or two, who would you give the credit to?

FOX News reports that Eugene Peterson is glad to take the credit for a ‘Bible’ that stopped two bullets, saving the life of a bus driver.

Reached at his home in Lakeside, Mont., Eugene H. Peterson, author of “The Message,” told FoxNews.com that he was thrilled to know his book stopped bullets.

That’s wonderful,” said Peterson, who is 81. “I’ve heard stories about that happening during the second World War. I’m glad to be in the club.”

Bible stops two bullets to save life of Ohio bus driver, police say

How could Eugene Peterson take the credit for a bullet-blocking Bible? The message is clear as mud. Maybe it’s because The Message is just “his book” and not really a Bible.

Even ABC News got it right. In reporting this incident, they refer to The Message as a ‘religious book’ and ‘a devotional book titled “The Message,”’here:

Miley Cyrus’ Jesus

In early January 2014, Miley Cyrus turned to her Instagram account to let everyone know about Jesus! Don’t get too excited though; it is actually to tell others what they should believe about Jesus. Here are the words from the picture that was posted:

“Jesus was a radical nonviolent revolutionary who hung around with lepers hookers and crooks; wasn’t American and never spoke English; was anti-wealth, anti-death penalty anti-public prayer (M 6:5); but was never anti-gay, never mentioned abortion or birth control, never called the poor lazy, never justified torture, who never fought for tax cuts for the wealthiest Nazarenes, never asked a Leper for copay; and was a long-haired brown-skinned homeless community-organizing anti-slut-shaming middle eastern Jew.”

This is another Jesus than the Jesus of the Bible. Read more at Cup of Joe:

POPE TO COPELAND: CATHOLICS AND CHARISMATICS MUST SPIRITUALLY UNITE

We are galloping toward a one-world melding of religions, and the ramifications are staggering. Pope Francis has now sent a video message to Word of Faith father Kenneth Copeland, urging a reconciliation between Catholics and Charismatics.

“The Catholic and Charismatic Renewal is the hope of the Church,” exclaims Anglican Episcopal Bishop Tony Palmer, before a group of cheering followers at the Kenneth Copeland Ministries. Palmer said those words are from the Vatican. Before playing the video message from Pope Francis to Kenneth Copeland, Palmer told the crowd, “When my wife saw that she could be Catholic, and Charismatic, and Evangelical, and Pentecostal, and it was absolutely accepted in the Catholic Church, she said that she would like to reconnect her roots with the Catholic culture. So she did.”

The crowd cheered…

Why is meditation dangerous for a Christian?

Look what happened to Katy.

“Perry has left behind her born-again past and finds spirituality through the writing of Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now influenced the song “This Moment”); practicing Transcendental Meditation (“the best thing I got out of my previous relationship, because it was introduced to me via my ex-husband”); and therapy. “I don’t believe in a heaven or a hell or an old man sitting on a throne.”
