VIP Seating, Popcorn, Candy and Movies at Christ Fellowship Church

Christ Fellowship is handing out popcorn at the door, giving away VIP reserved seating, and conducting a special effects smoke & flame show with "Ironman" on stage during their official Sunday worship service. The VIP reserved seating has a mini refrigerator with drinks, hot popcorn, and candy. To potentially qualify for the VIP reserved seating you have to take a picture of yourself by a movie set at a church campus, post it to social media, and then tag the photo. Does this seem like pandering to get people to show up to you?

Is this really the type of atmosphere an official church worship service should have? This may be fine for an informal church outreach event, but this is supposed to be a gathering of the church to worship. But a big sign on stage saying "AT THE MOVIES" confesses that the focus here is on a movie. 

Below you will see the absolute distraction and mess they make of a church service...

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.
— 2 Timothy 4: 3-4

Worship with a Piñata at Potential Church

 

Potential Church decided they needed a piñata during their Sunday morning service on July 10, 2016. It was part of their Beach Baptism Fiesta promotion. Watch this 3:15 video and ask yourself: Does this look like a church worship service or a middle school pep rally? Or a silly stunt to publicize the opening of a convenience store?? 

A church should have a serious tone for the worship of God and the preaching of God's word. Spending so much time with a piñata during an official worship service creates a shallow, silly tone that gives people the wrong idea about the purpose of worship, the Holiness of God and a number of other things.

A Bad Rap (About Tithing)

Christians are under the New Covenant. They are not under the Old Covenant. Tithing is an Old Covenant command, it is NOT a New Covenant ordinance. But there are a lot of seeker-driven (entertainment-driven) "churches" who have a lot of bills to pay in order to afford to keep their shows going. So they've reinstituted the Old Covenant tithe. But in order to "sell" the tithe these "churches" oftentimes have to employ the use of goofy entertainment to help ease the money out of the people's wallets.

Know the Truth
Christians are not obligated to tithe!

“Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Should Christians Tithe? <<--- Great article that explains the subject very well.

The Fruit of the Spirit is Total Loss of Self-Control?!?

Apparently the folks in the false signs and wonders movement are unaware that one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit is SELF-CONTROL.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, SELF-CONTROL; against such things there is no law.
— Galatians 5:22–23

Below is video of self-proclaimed "prophet" Stacey Campbell losing all self-control while claiming to be giving a word from the Lord at the 20th anniversary of the so-called "Toronto Blessing".

Prophet Launches Holy Ghost Missile Against Singleness

Are you stuck in singleness or the friend zone?  Can’t find marital bliss? Do you sense that maybe a witch or marine agent is the nemesis keeping you there? Looking for a remedy? Let me be more specific.

Are you looking for a prophet who can launch Holy Ghost missiles, and Holy Ghost bulldozers at the witches and marine agents keeping you in the shackles of perpetual singleness? 

I have the perfect prophet for you. Meet prophet Nicholas. He operates the Prophetic & Deliverance page on Facebook.

 

 

Prophet Nicholas can launch Holy Ghost missiles, Holy Ghost bulldozers, Holy Ghost earthquakes, and much more. He can launch them right at the witches and marine agents holding you back from complete marital bliss. Here is his Facebook post from June 18, 2016.

 

Any witchcraft woman sitting on your wedding or marital sit of HONOR that is causing you marital delay, marital denial, marital barrenness, marital crisis, marital disappointment, marital divorce and breakup; Any spiritual husband or wife, marine agents that has wedded you in their sea, ocean, river or in their witchcraft coven; i stand as an oracle of God, as CHRIST ambassador, as an advocator of HEAVEN on EARTH and as a servant of the MOST HIGH GOD; I rebuke, and command Holy Ghost Earthquake, Holy Ghost Thunder, Holy Ghost buldossar, Holy Ghost Force, Holy Ghost missile and Holy Ghost Fire to unsit and consume you demon now and i wash and cover your wedding sit with the BLOOD OF JESUS in the name of JESUS CHRIST. If you believe this prophetic prayer decree Type AMEN, HOLY GHOST FIRE.
Connect/Watsapp: +2348173247508...

You no longer have to blame singleness on your bad personality, or even your bad breath. Singleness is caused by witches and marine agents. Luckily they can be obliterated by the Holy Ghost missile launching Facebook prophet named Nicholas.

In all seriousness, please don't follow prophets claiming the ability to manhandle the sovereign third person of the Trinity. 

 

Prophetic Idol - Slow Jam Glam and Power Kicks

Meet Major Prophet Passion Java. You won't find him out in the wilderness wearing a garment of camel's hair while eating a steady diet of locusts and wild honey. You will find him living the glam lifestyle and giving prophetic power kicks.

The video below is a brief compilation of clips from his recent video. Does it sound like a slow jam?

You can watch his entire video below.

Paul warned about people who would teach twisted things to draw people away from Jesus. Corrupt ministries centered around a person and not Jesus.

and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. (Acts 20:30)

"Man Cuddling"-The New Way to Bring Men to the Church?

We all know how hard it is to get men to come to church. Perhaps this new trend is the missing piece of the puzzle to convince them to show up! Read more on: Is Not Satire

Men are always so hesitant to talk about topics like love, spirituality, feelings, relationships, etc., that's why they don't get too excited about attending a church service. Maybe the opportunity to spend some quiet time cuddling-with another man-is just what they need!

 

 

(In case you're worried that this is an actual "man cuddling" event, you can calm down-it's not. This is just ridiculous satirical writing to go along with the ridiculousness of this whole "revival" and the two men who are actually cuddling for some unknown reason. Bottom line: this is NOT how the Holy Spirit operates.)

The Nagging Prophetess!

Do you want to receive blessings from God? Do you want protection from the coming calamity? Do you want the latest prophetic instructions from God? Not the latest prophetic instructions from a month or two ago, but right now?? Well then stop watching Vonda Brewer's YouTube videos for free, you cheap, uncommitted phony! You need to pay $300 to become a part of her private Facebook group!! (Chris Rosebrough, you've been giving away thousands of hours of valuable material for years now-get a clue from the Vonda The Nag!) 

We've done the world a favor by speeding up Vonda's video so that the painful 17 minutes is reduced to a slightly more bearable 7:21...

In the words of the Prophetess:

All Sales Are Final!

(By the way, The Nag has disabled the "thumbs up/thumbs down" feature on this YouTube video. Maybe because she was getting "thumbs down" about 5 to 1 after we originally posted this...)

C. Peter Wagner Alters the "7 Mountain Mandate"-An Act of Desperation

If there's any doubt that C. Peter Wagner has very poor reasoning skills, this article (from Charisma) should clear it up:

C. Peter Wagner: I Like Donald Trump

In Wagner's NAR world of Seven Mountains Mandates (and Pixie Dust), it doesn't matter if someone is immoral and selfish-as long as they're successful. After making excuses for Trump's lack of moral integrity, he says this:

"Let me point out that influence is related to spirituality in the Religion Mountain, but this is not true in any of the other six mountains that are the molders of culture. The chief producer of influence in the six non-Religion mountains is not spirituality but success. The most successful people are the most influential."

So, in the original Seven Mountain Mandate, Christians were supposed to take over the "seven mountains" of Religion, Business, Arts, Media, Education, Family and Government. This idea is NOT from the Bible-it's something made up in the minds of Bill Bright and Loren Cunningham (and some other guys who probably want to take credit for it, too). This is, very generally speaking, another version of Dominionism; it's the idea that Christians are supposed to somehow Take Over The World!

But after years and years of teaching and proclaiming this man-made idea, and endless books, seminars and conferences, nothing has happened like they said it would. Nothing. Well, except that lots of books, seminars and conferences made a lot of money for all of the seven mountain mandate experts.

So now Wagner, the Grand Pooh-Bah of the New Apostolic Reformation, has decided to change the rules. According to his latest pro-Trump article, in order for the Seven Mountain Mandate to (finally) work, we need successful (non-Christian) people to take over the non-Religious mountains. Seriously. He really said this. Think about how bad an idea this is: Wagner wants successful non-Christians taking over the "mountains" of Education, Family and Government... oh wait, that's already happened. How's it working, Peter? This is your plan to "make America great again??" We've already got very influential people running the whole world!  

In Wagner's new and better version of the Seven Mountain Mandate, God does not require the assistance of Christians in order to take over the earth; He just needs successful people. God needs the help of greedy, rich and powerful people to accomplish His will. In the ever shrinking world of "religion" God will still utilize Christians (phew-at least we can still do something!), but for the rest of culture, anyone with a big ego and bank account is on the Lord's side. What, exactly, does successful mean? Wagner makes it very clear:

"In the Business Mountain and the Media Mountain Trump has accumulated $8-10 billion. He knows how to influence. I want to vote for a commander-in-chief, not a bishop-in-chief."

Take this ideology to it's logical conclusion, and Jesus Christ must be the most unsuccessful person of all time, followed by the Apostles and Prophets. Apparently, making billions of dollars is the measure of a man's influence. Thank you C. Peter Wagner, for proving once and for all that you're a foolish little man who values the things of this earth more than the things of God.

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
— Matthew 6:24

Shocking Stuff You're Not Supposed to Know!

Here's a related article: Finally Found! The Roots of the Seven Mountain Mandate.

 

By the way, if a Christian wants to vote for Trump regardless of his religious beliefs because they think his ideas are best, or because they think he's not part of the corrupt establishment, etc., that's one thing. It's another thing all together to say that God has chosen Trump to do some great and mighty thing (to save America, usher in the return of Christ, etc.) and we should not only ignore his moral shortcomings, but we should applaud him as new kind of savior. We already have a Savior, and He said "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting, that I might not be delivered up to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm." (John 18:36)

Here's a short article called Trump's Personal Jesus.

 

 

 

B. Houston on the "naked cowboy" Event: "I'm Clueless About It-But It's No Big Deal Anyway"

(somehow this video has been removed from YouTube-even though it was posted by a hillsong fan who was simply sharing this event that they attended. We will put up a copy below)

In an amazing example of not taking responsibility, Mega-Pastor NARpostle Brian Houston finally made a very brief blog post about what happened at his church. The basic summary could be this: "I have no idea how my staff (under my Apostolic authority) did such an inappropriate thing, but it doesn't matter anyway. And don't be so judgmental." 

Here's what he said, in entirety (posted on the Hillsong blog June 1, 2016):


"So how did someone come on stage imitating Times Square’s famous Naked Cowboy, (during a fun moment involving lots of other people), at the Colour Conference in NYC? It’s a good question, I’ve been trying to work that out myself.

I do know that Bobbie – my wife – who was convener of the conference was clearly unaware that this was going to happen and was taken back by it.  She was at the dress rehearsal and there was no sign of a naked cowboy lookalike there. Carl and Laura Lentz were also not part of the decision. I can only guess at this point, that some one thought it would be funny and sent him out there without thinking about the ramifications.

What I do know is that those who perpetuate the story, do so mainly with the help of a video, no context,  and a good dose of what the bible describes as hearsay and rumour. He was wearing proper shorts, not underwear, and he had a flag draped over him.

What I also know is that talk of apostates etc., is nonsense. Some well-meaning person just made a silly decision. It is unlikely to happen again.

Brian"


Houston is (desperately) hoping that you don't know that his own Hillsong youth pastor was the guy who dressed up as the "naked cowboy" (actually, he didn't dress up-that's the whole problem). Brian Houston is the Head Apostle of the Hillsong Media Empire, and senior members of his staff were in charge of this event and were even on stage during the event... but none of them:

  1. Know how this happened
  2. Know who actually stripped down to their shorts (you know, the guy with his name tattooed across his chest: Diego Simila)
  3. Will take responsibility-including the Grand Master Apostle Himself, Brian Houston

Here's a screen shot from the Hillsong NYC website:

Hillsong NYC Team screen shot.png

Even though Brian and Bobbie Houston are the senior pastors of this "church," they have no idea how this whole thing happened. After Brian Houston passes the buck, he then goes on to describe the real problem:

EVERYONE ELSE.

When you look at the videos and see Hillsong pastors/staff members cavorting with their fellow pastor, Diego Simila, a.k.a. "The Naked Cowboy/Youth Pastor" you are not to make any judgements! Just let them all have their fun and say nothing... because you can't possibly know what's really going on by watching the videos of what's going on... made by people who were right there watching what was going on. Got it? Obey NARpostle Brian Houston and move along-nothing to see here.

And then for the zinger at the end he writes: "What I also know is that talk of apostates etc., is nonsense. Some well-meaning person just made a silly decision. It is unlikely to happen again." This is the tactic of a cunning politician who knows how to divert attention away from serious problems that should be addressed.

Dear Brian Houston, "this talk of apostates" is not nonsense. It's true that this "naked cowboy" thing is actually a relatively minor issue when compared to all the false teaching, worldliness and scandalous cover-ups that are ongoing at Hillsong. This little incident is like a stupid college stunt (that was engineered by adults who should've known better). So let's move on; here's a lot of information about your heretical, apostate, messed up church: The Brian Houston & Hillsong Cornucopia of False Doctrine, Abuse, Obfuscation, & Money Generation

As soon as this Hillsong blog post went online, I made the following comment (nobody had made any other comments yet):

About 20 minutes after I made that comment, the comments were closed: 

UPDATE! As of June 3rd, 2016, it appears that Diego Simila is being removed from the internet. It appears that someone is very busy covering up the fact that Diego Simila was portraying the "naked cowboy" character, and they want to pretend he's not actually a pastor at their church (for sure, Brian Houston has done this in his blog post). It's bad enough that Hillsong often causes their followers to blindly trust whatever false doctrine they'e being taught, but Hillsong goes so far as to manipulate the appearance of their organization on the internet! It's a not a real church-it's a giant corporate entity that uses marketing tricks, media manipulation and propaganda to create the illusion that "God is doing something great at Hillsong!"  

And Moses said to Aaron, “What did this people do to you that you have brought such a great sin upon them?” And Aaron said, “Let not the anger of my lord burn hot. You know the people, that they are set on evil. For they said to me, ‘Make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’ So I said to them, ‘Let any who have gold take it off.’ So they gave it to me, and I threw it into the fire, and (poof) out came this calf.
— Exodus 32:21-24 (No, Aaron didn't actually say "poof")

NARpostle Tim Sheets tells outlandish stories that would make Mark Twain blush. Joseph Smith (the guy who founded the Mormons) could have taken lessons from this guy.

The Naked Cowboy: He's a Hillsong Pastor?!

Pastor Ben Houston on stage with fellow pastor and "naked cowboy" Diego Simila

Pastor Ben Houston on stage with fellow pastor and "naked cowboy" Diego Simila

The big story last week was about the "naked cowboy" appearing at a Hillsong women's conference in New York. The "naked cowboy" (who actually has underwear/briefs on) turns out to be a Hillsong youth pastor. In case you don't know, the "naked cowboy" is a real character who walks around Times Square in New York City. So it appears that the staff at Hillsong thought it would be funny for someone to portray that guy on stage at this woman's conference. Once again, Hillsong has been caught on camera doing something questionable and inappropriate, but we're supposed to trust them and not believe what we can see with our own eyes. Dr. Michael Brown, the very respected and scholarly Charismatic leader said this:

Yes, Dr. Brown, it's accurate. Are you gonna ignore this obvious and blatant example of charismatic worldliness-you know, just like you normally do?? Here's an article from the great researchers at Church Watch Central that fills in the details of this situation: Church Watch Central

The Naked Cowboy Appears at Hillsong Women's Conference

Hillsong continues to astound by their complete and utter disregard for how scripture instructs Christians to conduct their lives in this present evil age. First they brought us Sleezy Silent Night. Then they had the sexual pervert Austin Powers appear at their women's conference in London and now they'e had The Naked Cowboy appear at their women's conference in New York (actually it's their youth pastor dressed up as the "naked cowboy"). We fear to see what they have in store for their next conference.

The Pandemonium of "Prophecy" Open Mic

If you've never witnessed the bizarre pandemonium of "prophecy" open mic at Glory of Zion then grab yourself some drinking straws, padding and duct tape and get ready for one of the most insane things that you've ever seen done in the name of the Holy Spirit.

After watching this you will either think The Holy Spirit is a blathering idiot and is incapable of coherent and lucid communication or these people are under the deception of a really strong delusion. 

WARNING: If you watch the video below, you can never get those minutes back. Just for fun, be sure to watch for the cameo appearance of Dana Carvey (at 3:10 into the video) where he resurrects the character Garth (from the movie Wayne's World) and brilliantly combines it with the Church Lady character to create the Angry Plundering Lady!

"Press in and take the plunder!!!"

Austin Powers Appears at Hillsong Women's Conference

In the truth is stranger than fiction category: Austin Powers, an icon of sexual perversion made an appearance at the Hillsong women's conference (Colour Conference).

Hillsong London senior pastor Gary Clarke at the Hilsong women's Colour Conference playing the part of Austin Powers while Bobbie Houston watches on.

Why on Earth would a church's women's conference want an icon of sexual perversion to speak to their women and young ladies? What's next, a Jarod impersonator speaking at a Hillsong youth event? 

“But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints.” (Ephesians 5:3)

Body Prayer?!?!

This is what happens when you reject the authority of scripture and just start making your own stuff up. 

Apparently, body prayers begin with "Namaste".

Compare what you just watched to what Jesus said about prayer:

“Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” And he said to them, “When you pray, SAY: “Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.”” (Luke 11:1–4)

Bill Johnson's $400 Thumb Drive

New Apostolic Reformation Cornucopia of False Doctrine, Dominionism, Charismania and Deception

Bill Johnson Lies to Christianity Today Magazine?

In the May 2016 issue of Christianity Today, Bill Johnson is asked, "So, what are your thoughts on the New Apostolic Reformation?" and he responds,

"I'm not completely clear on what it is." 

This is almost like Hillary Clinton saying "I'm not completely clear on what the Democrat Party is." Here's a very detailed article from Churchwatch Central about this breathtaking statement: 

Churchwatch Central

Here's another article from the blog Spirit of Error: Yes, Bethel and Bill Johnson are part of the New Apostolic Reformation

C. Peter Wagner invented the term New Apostolic Reformation and then claimed that he was in charge of it-which means that he decided who the "Super Apostles" would be. Bill Johnson is at the top of the list. But because the NAR is composed of various sub-groups, there isn't a master list; but Bill Johnson is part of Revival Alliance, which is 100% NAR. Most importantly, "NARpostle" Bill Johnson teaches all the things that the NAR teaches! The absolute low point of this movement was the Charismatic Day of Infamy (and they hope you don't know about it).

Bill Johnson doesn't want you to know about the false NAR teachings that are being exposed, so he's trying to pretend like there's no such thing as the NAR. Before the NAR there was the "Third Wave" and before that there was the "Latter Rain Movement." It seems that these groups eventually encounter difficulty trying to defend their un-biblical beliefs, so they use a new name to distance themselves from the controversy.

Here's C. Peter Wagner's 1988 book that was making statements and promises identical to the New Apostolic Reformation (only he was calling it the Third Wave back then):

We at Pirate Christian Media will be announcing a new name for this group and their beliefs, so that everyone can focus on the bad doctrine instead of a particular name. We also highly recommend the book: A New Apostolic Reformation? by R. Douglas Geivett & Holly Pivec for those who want to learn more about this gigantic, morphing movement that is eating up the church.
