INTRODUCTION TO MYSTICISM »

Apprising Ministries is a online apologetics and discernment labor in the Lord and part of my commission as pastor-teacher is to help make you aware of trends within the church visible. I wish I had better news but as I survey the horizon I see a tsunami of apostasy on the way; in large part […]

CHARLES SPURGEON: THOSE WHO BURY THE GOSPEL WITH TRASH »

The PyroManiacs devote some space each weekend to highlights from The Spurgeon Archive. The following excerpt is from “Under Constraint,” a sermon preached Sunday morning 28 April 1878 at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London: I have not much patience with a certain class of Christians nowadays who will hear anybody preach so long as they […]

WE’RE SO SORRY, UNCLE ALBERT, FOR "RED LETTER CHRISTIANS" »

The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk. They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently […]

BOB DEWAAY AND CHRIS ROSEBROUGH ON THE EMERGING CHURCH »

We are blessed that the Lord chose to place Apprising Ministries among the leading labors against the egregiously ecumenical Emerging Church aka Emergent Church de-formation of the Christian faith—now morphing into Emergence Christianity (EC), which is a cult of a postliberalism swallowing up more and more of mainstream apostatizing evangelicalism—a Liberalism 2.0 as it were. Now with this in mind AM is […]

THE GREATEST EXPERT ON THE SCRIPTURES AND HIS VIEW OF THE BIBLE »

It’s important you understand that mainstream evangelicalism continues moving further away from the certainty of Sola Scriptura in favor of highly subjective Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM). As you’ll see in Disciplines To Deception In Southern Baptist Convention entire state SBC conventions e.g. North Carolina are openly using teachings from Living Spiritual Teacher and Quaker mystic Richard Foster. Under under Discipleship Resources of the State Board of […]

HERESCOPE: THE EMERGING CHURCH—CIRCA 1970 »

 Apprising Ministries has long been covering something known as Emerging Church aka Emergent Church, now morphing into Emergence Christianity (EC). Those familiar with AM pieces like Emergent Church: A Diseased Tree and A Conversation About The Emerging Church With Mike Clawson And Ken Silva know my view that this EC, as we now know it, essentially begins circa 1997. I’ve […]

MYSTICISM MELDS MUSLIM MYSTICS TO TONY CAMPOLO AND EMERGENCE CHRISTIANITY »

DOWN WITH SOLA SCRIPTURA!     All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him. (Matthew 11:27, ESV)  The Christian Is An Ambassador of Jesus Christ […]

EMERGENCE CHRISTIANITY REPAINTING THE SOCIAL GOSPEL AND LIBERATION THEOLOGY »

DOWN WITH SOLA SCRIPTURA!   “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”  (Luke 19:10) The Primary Mission Of The Church Of Jesus Christ Is To Preach God’s Gospel If you are following the issue of the postliberal cult of Emergence Christianity here at Apprising Ministries you will see […]

MAN-CENTERED GOSPEL VS. GOD-CENTERED GOSPEL »

A man-centered gospel is the belief that the determining factor in whether or not a man is eternally saved, in the end, relies (at some level) upon an act of his own will i.e. human decision. This is often called synergism because it is thought to be a cooperative effort between God and man. While […]

EMERGING EASTERN-STYLE MEDITATION FOR GLOBAL PEACE…AND WORSE… »

Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD. You have abandoned your people, the house of Jacob. They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination like the Philistines and clasp hands with pagans. (Isaiah 2:5-6) Eastern-Style Meditation As The Bridge To Unite All Religions And Transform Mankind Building on It’s High Time […]
