KAY ARTHUR WITH ERRONEOUS CONTEMPLATIVE INTERPRETATION OF PSALM 46:10 »

CHRIS FABRY LIVE—CASTING OUT DEMONS AND BREAKING GENERATIONAL CURSES »

As evidenced e.g. by articles like On Contemplative Spirituality and Charismania, one of the issues I’ve been covering here at Apprising Ministries is the influx of hyper-charismatic excesses and full-on Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM) into mainstream evangelicalism. Take for example charismaniacs Rick Warren and NAR’s Samuel Rodriguez ERLC at the SBC and Catalystt Contemplative Lab led by CSM Guru Phileena Heuertz. As I survey […]

“GOOD” EXPERIENCES ARE NOT NECESSARILY FROM GOD »

To the teaching and to the testimony! If they will not speak according to this word, it is because they have no dawn. (Isaiah 8:20) It’s Past Time For Some Straight Up Truth In Evangelical Christian Circles Christian apologist Bob DeWaay has a very accurate saying: Deceptions that do not “work” have a short shelf life.

CONTEMPLATIVE/CENTERING PRAYER TODAY AT CATALYST CONFERENCE »

In articles e.g. like On Contemplative Spirituality and Charismania here at Apprising Ministries I’ve been warning you about the very clear and present danger posed by the ongoing evangelical fascination with corrupt Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM) and its parallel arm of charismatic excesses. Like I’ve said before, it’s important for you to remember here that CSM, which has been perpetrated throughout evangelicalism as […]

BOB DEWAAY: OPRAH’S DANGEROUS POP SPIRITUALITY EASTERN MYSTICISM »

This time we live in is marred by the false philosophy of postmodernism, which is more deeply entrenched within the gates of Christendom than most realize. Circa 2000 mainstream evangelicalism made the ill-fated decision to embrace the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult operating within the Emerging Church aka the Emergent Church. Sadly, the EC—headed by, among others, its trinity of apostates, Living […]

JOHN CALVIN ON MONASTIC VOWS I.E. SPIRITUAL DISCIPLINES »

In Means Of Grace: Searching The Scriptures the other day here at Apprising Ministries reminded you about the spread of what I call a cult of Foster-Willardism deep within mainstream Protestant evangelicalism; and with it, a rebirth of Pietism masquerading as the Spritiual Formation. A good four years ago in Spiritual Formation: Just Say No I warned that, with an assist from his spiritual twin Dallas […]
