BENJAMIN WARFIELD: MYSTICISM NO DEEPER THAN THE SELF »

Religion is, shortly, the reaction of the human soul in the presence of God. As God is as much a part of the environment of man as the earth on which he stands, no man can escape from religion any more than he can escape from gravitation. But though every man necessarily reacts to God, […]

THE NEW DOWNGRADE AND ITS APOSTLES OF UNBELIEF »

This online apologetics and discernment work Apprising Ministries has been blessed of Jesus to be used as one of His “go-to” ministries in the area of  the ne0-Gnostic corruption called Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM), which is now pandemic within mainstream evangelicalism through its foolish embrace of the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emerging Church aka Emergent Church with its quasi-universalism in a […]

SEDUCING SPIRITS SOUNDING THE SAME »

 Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons.

EVANGELICALISM NOW REAPING WHAT IT HAS SOWN »

For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. (Galatians 6:7-8)  Church Growth Techniques Sowed To The Flesh   For […]

And in Mark Driscoll And Neo-Reformed New Calvinist Contemplative Spirituality I’ve also shown you that […]
