Since God doesn’t look on the outside, should you dress like celebrities?

Liberal Christians today are a very deceived bunch of people. They claim to go by the name of Christ but live like the rest of the world. A classic example is the popular saying “God doesn’t look on the outside but at the heart”.  Agreed that this is what the LORD told Samuel when choosing David as a king:

“But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart.” (1Sam 16:7)

So taking this Scripture ref. in to account, men and women who call themselves Christians find the liberty to cover themselves in tattoos, piercings and clothes that exhibit all the feminine curves. Don’t even dare tell them that their sense of fashion is an abomination to God; you will be attacked with the verse quoted above. In fact, they will tell you that immoral fashion it is not distracting anyone from worshiping God. There are even worship leaders that dress like Hollywood celebrities. In that case, the Apostle Paul made an unforgivable blunder when he commanded women to dress modestly. 

Even men lie when saying that a women’s suggestive clothing doesn’t stop him from focusing on God – yeah right! Are you really not distracted when a liberal Christian girl is dressed in tight mini-skirt jumping in front of you during a worship session? (These worship sessions are mostly music worship instead of God worship, but that’s another topic.)

And girls, as if you don’t know that you are causing men (who you call your brothers in Christ) to sin?

Anyhow, coming down to what God is saying in the verse quoted above, notice that He is referring to the physical  structure of a man (or a woman). “Countenance” and “height of the structure” refer to the attributes with which the person is born. People judge others based on these attributes: short men, black people, ugly nose, no curves etc. The physical characteristics, which you can’t do anything about, is what the LORD is referring to. No one is born with tattoos, low-cut tops or piercings. (If you had tattoos before you came to the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, you are pardoned. However, it is those who know His grace yet go on to look like the heathens.)

There are portions in the book of Psalms and Proverbs that say that a woman who leads a man astray with her words is an adulteress. However, women don’t need to speak words in order to lead men to stray; she simply has to show off her curves and/or skin.  You could cover all your skin by wearing a tight outfit, it will still display your curves. It is a proven fact that men naturally tend to respect women that dress modestly and carry themselves with dignity and self-worth rather than items of lust. And trust me girls, real men prefer a properly dressed woman.

As to the argument that God looks at the heart: your thoughts, your sense of fashion, your words, you habits — they all display what’s in your heart, and what God is actually looking at. What’s on the inside shows on the outside. If you revered and feared the absolutely holy and righteous God, you would think a 100 times before dressing like a celebrity or heading to the tattoo parlor.

Where Did the Emergent Church ‘Emerge’ From?

The false teachings exposed by Dave Fiorazo below are not only being taught in churches in America but has reached global scale by international Christian missions such as Ravi Zacharia International Ministries (RZIM), Youth for Christ, YWAM and many other global missions. Having been with YWAM myself for a few years, I can testify that such teachings are rampantly taught in its schools to undiscerning youth!

WARNING: The author of this article has determined that ignoring the following information may be hazardous to your spiritual health, and that choosing to do nothing with this knowledge may grieve the Holy Spirit and cause regret; but taking action may strengthen your faith. “Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints. For certain men whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.” (Jude 1:3-4)

The emerging church is a movement of the late 20th and early 21st century that crosses a number of theological boundaries: participants can be described as evangelical, post-evangelical, liberal or post-liberal, reformed, neo-charismatic, and post-charismatic. They seek to live their faith in what they believe to be a”Postmodern” society. It is a rapidly growing network of individual believers and churches who would prefer to be understood as a conversation or a friendship rather than an organization. What those involved mostly agree on is their disdain and disillusionment with the organized and institutional church. The emergent church favors the use of simple story and narrative. Members of the movement often place a high value on good works or social activism. The hallmark of the emergent church is the new age aspect including the practice of contemplative monastic meditation and prayers. While some emphasize eternal salvation, many in the emerging church emphasize the here and now. Much of its doctrine rejects systematic Christian theology, the integrity of Scripture, and gospel exclusivity. They don’t believe Christianity is the true religion and they promote homosexuality. They call for diversity, tolerance and camaraderie among all religions, and they modify and expand their teachings. It is a war against the Truth.

At an emergent church workshop in San Diego, Tony Jones said, “This is about our belief that theology changes. The message of the gospel changes. It’s not just the method that changes.” What? I submit to you that Jesus never changed his message to fit the times. Books, sermons and articles have been and will be written about the emergent church, and I’ve come to realize that too many believers are at times uninterested, uninformed, or just plain apathetic about the Bible and understanding the times we live in. There’s plenty of information out there if you’re interested in doing the research. You may even know their names. They are best-selling authors in Christian stores, speakers at our music festivals, and well-known leaders in Christian circles. Please read the following quotes from emergent church leaders, keeping the following verses in mind:

“The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.” 1 Timothy 4:1

“Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.” Acts 20:30

Going to heaven is like going to Philadelphia… There are many ways…It doesn’t make any difference how we go there. We all end up in the same place.” 1a

“On the other hand, we are hard-pressed to find any biblical basis for condemning deep love commitments between homosexual Christians as long as those commitments are not expressed in sexual intercourse.” 1b

“But the overwhelming population of the gay community that love Jesus, that go to church, that are deeply committed in spiritual things, try to change and can’t change…” 1c

“…we want to see God at work converting society, converting the systems, so that there aren’t the racist overtones, the economic injustices, the polluting of the atmosphere.” 1d

“I learn about Jesus from other religions. They speak to me about Christ, as well.”1e

“I’m not convinced that Jesus only lives in Christians.” 1f

(Tony Campolo is an author, professor of Sociology at Eastern College, former spiritual counselor to President Bill Clinton, and a leader of the movement called “Red Letter Christians”.)

“I don’t believe making disciples must equal making adherents to the Christian religion. It may be advisable in many (not all!) circumstances to help people become followers of Jesus and remain within their Buddhist, Hindu or Jewish contexts…” 2a

“Yes, I find a character named God who sends a flood that destroys all humanity except Noah’s family, but that’s almost trivial compared to a deity who tortures the greater part of humanity forever in infinite eternal conscious torment, three words that need to be read slowly and thoughtfully to feel their full import.” 2b

“For many Christians, their faith is primarily about what happens to people after they die. That distracts them from seeking justice and living in a compassionate way while we’re still alive in this life. We need to go back and take another look at Jesus’ teachings about hell. For so many people, the conventional teaching about hell makes God seem vicious. That’s not something we should let stand.” 2c

“In this light, a god who mandates an intentional supernatural disaster leading to unparalleled genocide is hardly worthy of belief, much less worship. How can you ask your children…to honor a deity so uncreative, over reactive, and utterly capricious regarding life?” 2d

“I don’t think that abortion is the moral equivalent issue to slavery…I think poverty is the new slavery. Poverty and global inequality are the fundamental moral issues of our time. That’s my judgment.” 3a

“Christianity will be impotent to lead a conversation on sexuality and gender if we do not bodily integrate our current understandings of humanity with our theology. This will require us to not only draw new conclusions about sexuality but will force us to consider new ways of being sexual.” 3b

“As more Christians become influenced by liberation theology, finding themselves increasingly rejecting the values of institutions of capitalism, they will also be drawn to the Marxist analysis and praxis that is so central to the social justice movement.” 3c

(Jim Wallis is a writer and political activist, best known as the founder and editor of Sojourners’ Magazine, for which he admitted to accepting money from George Soros, who has financed groups supporting abortion and atheism; Wallis has been arrested 22 times for acts of civil disobedience, and he serves as a spiritual adviser to President Obama.)

What if tomorrow someone digs up definitive proof that Jesus had a real, earthly, biological father named Larry, and archeologists find Larry’s tomb and do DNA samples and prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the virgin birth was just a bit of mythologizing the Gospel writers threw in to appeal to the followers of the Mithra and Dionysian religious cults that were hugely popular at the time of Jesus, whose gods had virgin births? …Could you still be a Christian? Is the way of Jesus still the best possible way to live?” 4a

“In any case, I now believe that GLBTQ [Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Queer] can live lives in accord with Biblical Christianity (at least as much as any of us can!) and that their monogamy can and should be sanctioned and blessed by church and state.” 5a

“Some people today may find it compelling that some Great Cosmic Transaction took place on that day 1,980 years ago, that God’s wrath burned against his son instead of me. I find that version of atonement theory neither intellectually compelling, spiritually compelling, nor in keeping with the biblical narrative.” 5c

How did we get to the point where some, if not all, of these teachings have blended in with truth and sound doctrine, and are accepted by many churches and ministries? Make no mistake. I’d need to write an entire book to completely answer that question. False teachers have been around since the early church days. The major issue with the emergent church is that it rejects the authority of the word of God. These teachings were not accepted by evangelical Christians overnight. This is 2010. We can trace the advancement of the emergent church to the late 80’s and 90’s, when people began talking about how to modernize and re-create church to be more attractive to the unchurched. But going back to the hippy flower-power days of the 1960’s, the new fad was all about peace, love, free sex, and rebelling against authority. Absolute truth and Biblical standards were questioned and labeled as too rigid, leading some to moral relativism. Moral Relativism is an ethical judgment. It is the claim that no ethical system is better than another, and rests on the belief that values are subjective.

Some churches responded to the 60’s rebellion by trying to convert as many as possible and accepted them as they were. ‘Come as you are’ was the new slogan. Jesus does meet people right where they are, but there’s an important distinction: He loves people too much to leave them that way, and unlike the emergent church, His message never changes! He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Heb. 13:8) Many churches began watering down the true gospel in an effort to lure potential new members and not offend unbelievers. Some Pastors and church leaders simply wanted to increase their market share, so to speak. The seeker-friendly or seeker-sensitive movement began to grow and a skim milk diet replaced the meat of God’s word. More young people began attending church but there was little follow-up or discipleship training, and lots of baby Christians went back out into the world with little conviction to change.

The 1970’s brought us the development of the Christian music industry. Most of the industry pioneers were authentic, God-fearing, and ministry-minded, but I wonder if they would approve of Christian music as a whole today? In some cases, bands are more into the entertainment aspect than building up the body of Christ. Biblical truth was becoming irrelevant to young Christians and grace was way over-emphasized. One might argue that we shouldn’t judge others because it is divisive. In Luke 12:51, Jesus said that he did not come to bring peace but division. He never backed down when it came to facing hypocritical religious leaders. If you’re a mature Christian, you too need to be careful. The Apostle Paul writes, “You were running a good race. Who cut in on you and kept you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you. A little yeast works through the whole batch of dough.” (Gal. 5:7-9) Many churches in America now have beautiful buildings, coffee shops, bookstores, great music and sound systems, state of the art lighting, and good drama or video presentations, but they seem to put more of an emphasis on entertaining the flock than on feeding them God’s word. Well, at least the young people are happy.

The 80’s rolled around and a few years after I gave my life to Christ, I heard Tony Campolo speak in California. I remember laughing a lot because he’s a great entertainer. He knows how to reach both young and old. His presentation has never been a concern; his theology definitely is. To fully understand the background and motives of some of the emergent church guru’s, you’d need to know more about Liberation theology, Marxism, Saul Alinsky, Sojourners Magazine, George Soros, Red Letter Christians, Collective Salvation, and the Students for a Democratic Society. Most young people like to take action for a cause, and some of these works-based teachings call for organizing, social or environmental action. This is a clever way to lure those who are not as mature in the faith.

In 1995 Jim Wallis founded ‘Call to Renewal’ for the purposes of advocating for leftist economic agendas such as tax hikes and wealth redistribution to promote social justice. He himself stated, “That’s what the gospel is all about.” In 2005, Democratic Senators (including Harry Reid) met with Wallis to devise clever ways to use religious language to pull evangelical voters away from Republicans. According to TraditionalValues.org, Wallis was hired to fool Americans into believing secular liberals had found “religion” in part by sprinkling references to God and faith into their speeches. Just this year, Wallis has criticized America’s heritage, capitalism, conservative Christians, and jumped on the race card express saying, “would there even be a Tea Party if the president of the United States weren’t the first black man to occupy that office?”

The “social gospel” and the social justice message is an apostasy. Apostasy means a departure from the faith or one who denies the fundamental doctrines concerning the person and work of Jesus Christ. Social justice teachings have branched off from the emergent church. We can no longer deny the fact that humanism, liberalism and the secular-progressive movement are alive and well in the Church, just as it has been for years in government, education, media, and the entertainment industry. Last month, Jim Wallis brought his social justice message to a Christian festival in Wisconsin called Lifest. (Wallis’ Sojourners puts more emphasis on the environment and poverty than on salvation and sin.) Because there were many great bands and speakers there, I’ve heard a few people try to make an argument in favor of Wallis, with the over-used analogy, “don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.” So, if only a few people hear a false gospel, that’s ok? “Let’s just agree to disagree.” Sorry, that method may be fine when dealing with petty arguments between friends or family. But when it comes to false doctrines, we can’t simply just look the other way. I heard the story of a woman who told her daughters that they no longer could attend Lifest because of Wallis. Weeks before, she and her husband wanted their young daughters to remember the dangers of false teachers, so they made brownies together. After all of the ingredients were added, she told them there was one more ingredient to add. The girls were shocked when their Mom added a small piece of dog poop to the batter! She told them not to worry and that they might not even taste it. Admittedly, this was a disgustingly effective lesson I bet they’ll never forget! Jesus warned His disciples to avoid the teachings (yeast) of the Pharisees, but He didn’t have a brownie recipe handy for visual effects.

According to Time Magazine (so take this with a grain of salt), Brian McLaren is one of the 25 most influential people in the evangelical church. This makes me believe our culture is confused about what ‘evangelical’ means. It is a serious issue because his teachings seem to reject the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the work on the cross, and dilutes what the Bible says about Heaven and eternal life. McLaren is changing Biblical doctrine to fit his own ‘We Are the World’ type of theology, which stomps out the reality of Hell and the fact that Jesus became our substitute on the cross in order to redeem us. He doubts the reliability of the Bible and I’m confused as to why he is not more of a red flag to Christians. Please read for yourself what the Apostle Paul wrote in Galatians 1:8 about those who preach another Gospel.

Many of today’s youth have been raised in a culture (and sadly in some churches) where feelings and sensitivity matter but sound doctrine and the truth of God’s word aren’t a priority. This invites the justification of sinful behaviors and tolerance for sin. Our culture has redefined the word ‘tolerance’ to mean love, unconditional grace, warm fuzzies, and the acceptance of not only the sinner but the sin as well. When the Holy Spirit isn’t invited, by the preaching of Scripture, to come in and work in our hearts, there can be no conviction. Without revelation of sin and conviction, there can be no repentance leading to forgiveness. We shouldn’t be surprised that many young Christians have their spiritual foundations built on the sand. The Lord Jesus Christ said something very serious about those who cause little ones to stumble. He said in Luke 17:2 that it would be better that a millstone would be tied around the neck of the one who caused them to sin. These guys have no business teaching Christian theology and it’s amazing that so many ‘believing’ consumers buy into their feel-good, motivational doctrine. Part of their gospel is one of a social worker putting their faith in man (humanism) and government.

Dr. Walter Martin, founder of the Christian Research Institute, sternly warned about liberal theology and the emergent church saying, “It is a cult because it follows every outlined structure of cultism; its own revelations; its own gurus, and its denial—systematically—of all sound systematic Christian theology. It is a cult because it passes its leadership on to the next group that takes over—either modifying, expanding or contracting—the same heresies; dressing them up in different language, and passing them on…it denies the authority of Scripture, it ruins its own theology. And it ends in immorality; because the only way you could have gotten to this homosexual, morally relativistic, garbage—which is today in our denominational structures—is if the leadership of those denominations denied the authority of the Scriptures and Jesus Christ as Lord…Test all things; make sure of what is true (see 1 Thessalonians 5:21). I’m not being harsh; I’m not being judgmental. I am being thoroughly, consistently, Christian; in the light of historic theology, and the holy Bible.”

So what should we do? Since not enough Christians know the dangers and the extent of the emergent church movement and their radical teachings, we need to promote awareness of these deceptions. We need to dig deeper in to the Word of God than ever before and know it so well that if we hear a counterfeit message, we’ll recognize it immediately! We need to talk to our Pastors and Christian friends. You have a choice to make and I encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and take a stand for Christ. The spiritual battle rages all around us and the enemy is on our doorstep. Satan has been at work at a church near you spreading his deceptions. The good news is that we are on to his schemes. Mature believers know that the emergent church teachings are contrary to the gospel of Christ. So suit up in the full armor of God and pray for discernment. Revelation 3:11 says, “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” Light dispels the darkness, so share the truth, stand your ground, and shine your light!

Youth With A (Illuminati) Mission

“Youth With A Mission,” the global religious group that cooked up the hoax “The Path to 9/11,” a docudrama aired on ABC Sept. 10-11, is, underneath its public cover, the organization created in the 1920s-1930s by the notorious pro-Nazi Frank Buchman. Above cover, it was known during and after World War II as Moral Rearmament, and also as the National Prayer Breakfast Movement or “The Fellowship” or “The Family.”[1]

This imperial agency was crafted by the British and Dutch royal and financier faction that backed fascism and sought a world government in tandem with Hitler. After the death of President Franklin Roosevelt, the Buchman initiative was based at Caux, Switzerland, on Lake Geneva, and was inserted into Washington in aid of its sponsors’ drive for power over U.S. policy.

The Youth With A Mission (YWAM—pronounced “why-wham”) arm of this movement was set up in the 1960s and 1970s by a sort of carnival snake-charmer named Loren Cunningham. His son David Cunningham led a YWAM sub-unit (The Film Institute) for a rightist “revolution” in Hollywood, and was the director of ABC’s “Path to 9/11.”

Founder Frank Buchman described his agenda in an interview with a New York newspaper, the World Telegram, published on Aug. 26, 1936 under the headline, “Hitler Or Any Fascist Leader Controlled By God Could Cure All Ills Of World, Buchman Believes”:

“I thank Heaven for a man like Adolf Hitler, who built a front line of defense against the anti-Christ of Communism,” [Buchman] said today in his book-lined office in the annex of Calvary Church, Fourth Ave. and 21st St.

“My barber in London told me Hitler saved Europe from Communism. That’s how he felt. Of course, I don’t condone everything the Nazis do. Anti-Semitism? Bad, naturally. I suppose Hitler sees a Karl Marx in every Jew.

“But think what it would mean to the world if Hitler surrendered to the control of God. Or Mussolini. Or any dictator. Through such a man God could control a nation overnight and solve every last, bewildering problem.”

Buchman gave the New York interview having just returned from meetings of his “Oxford Group” in England; and from the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin, where he had been the guest of SS leader Heinrich Himmler. (Buchman had gone to Nazi rallies at Nuremberg with Himmler, whom Buchman claimed to be training in religion.)

“Dr. Buchman,” wrote the World Telegram reporter, “listens quietly to ‘God’s plans’ for a half hour or so every day, usually before breakfast….

“The world needs the dictatorship of the living spirit of God…. God is a perpetual broadcasting station…. What we need is a supernatural network of live wires across the world to every last man, in every last place, in every last situation….

“Human problems aren’t economic…. They could be solved within a God-controlled democracy, or perhaps I should say a theocracy, and they could be solved through a God-controlled Fascist dictatorship.”

The Delphic Oracle As Cheap Comedy

Loren Cunningham and other Youth With A Mission leaders, like the Buchman followers running The Fellowship/National Prayer Breakfast, and such Buchmanite-trained charlatans as televangelist Pat Robertson, shamelessly say that their schemes come from God. The daily “quiet time” is a Buchman-signature boast. Buchman would supposedly sit with paper and pencil, mind empty, to take God’s dictation.

For example, in his 1984 book, Is That Really You, God?, Loren Cunningham wrote that in 1967, while “I was in bed in California … a thought came into my mind: ‘You are to have a … School of Evangelism.’ I wondered if this were from God…. Then another thought suddenly cut through, ‘Your school is to be in Switzerland.’ Switzerland! ‘Is this you, God?’ I asked in my mind.” A few days later, a family friend met him for breakfast and said, “Loren, I have a message for you. The Lord has been planting the idea in my mind that someone should start a school in Switzerland. Last night He told me you are to be the one….” He continued “that the school was to have an international student body and visiting teachers…. ‘Loren, I’m just a channel to pass this message on to you.’… We landed in Geneva in April [1967] … We made arrangements for a facility in a town outside Lausanne and returned to the States….”

Thus, allegedly, was born YWAM’s “Discipleship Training School” world headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

From the Swiss base, YWAM moved across the border into Bavaria, Germany. YWAM bought a castle at Hurlach, formerly owned by the Fuggers, a feudal-nobility banking family whose undead 20th-Century members sponsored Frank Buchman’s Swiss and German intrigues.2>fu2 Youth With A Mission stuffed 1,000 young followers into this Hurlach castle operational base, for a recruiting assault on the 1972 Munich Olympics, a rerun of Buchman’s 1936 glory days in Berlin.

The New Order Makes Breakfast

The National Prayer Breakfast, immediate predecessor of Youth With A Mission within the Buchman initiative, had its origin in the same Manhattan building, Calvary Church, where Frank Buchman gave his notorious 1936 newspaper interview.

That Episcopal church was the American headquarters for Buchman’s “Oxford Group” as it was then known, and the Calvary rector, Rev. Sam Shoemaker, was the national spokesman for Buchman. When Buchman was hit with increasing criticism for his praise of fascism as God’s instrument, he changed the name of the movement to Moral Rearmament, and his nervous American representatives rushed to get a Buchmanite para-church agency attached to the government in Washington.

The principal agents in this venture[3] were:

Longtime Buchman spokesman Rev. Sam Shoemaker;

Mrs. Marian Johnson, a high-society American and fanatical Anglophile, intimate on a family basis with the British Ambassador to Washington (1938-40), Lord Lothian, head of the financiers’ “Round Table” faction promoting Hitler; Mrs. Johnson oversaw much of the fundraising for the Buchman movement;

Abraham Vereide, a Norwegian immigrant and Buchman apostle specializing in capturing the minds of the wealthy and the powerful. He claimed to have converted the former Nazi SS officer, Netherlands’ Prince Bernhard, to Christ, and he and Frank Buchman together secured official Dutch Royal Family sponsorship for the Prayer Breakfast movement;

Col. Sir Vivian Gabriel, a British intelligence officer serving as Air Attaché with the British Embassy, who opened doors for Vereide and the others inside Washington;

H. Alexander Smith, the main American lieutenant of Frank Buchman, and father-in-law of Reverend Shoemaker. Smith later represented New Jersey in the U.S. Senate, and cemented the Prayer Breakfast, under covert “Fellowship” leadership, into place as a private institution in the U.S. Congress. On June 2, 1941, a year after the Nazi conquest of France, Smith drafted for the Foreign Policy Association a proposal that Hitler should be allowed to rule over and reform Europe—the so-called New Order—while the United States and Britain should jointly rule the rest of the world.

The Hitler-Haunted House on C Street

The existence of a covert Hitlerite organization (called simply “The Fellowship,” or “The Family”) wielding considerable power through the 1980s’ Conservative Revolution, was brought before the public in the March 2003 issue of Harper’s magazine (article entitled “Jesus Plus Nothing”).

Reporter Jeffrey Sharlet infiltrated The Fellowship. He quoted the leader, Vereide’s successor Douglas Coe, and the group’s private memos: “Coe listed other men who had changed the world through the strength of the covenants they had forged with their brothers: Look at Hitler, he said. Lenin, Ho Chi Minh, Bin Laden…. A document called Thoughts on a Core Group explains that Communists use cells as their basic structure. The mafia operates like this, and the basic unit of the Marine Corps is the four man squad. Hitler, Lenin, and many others understood the power of a small core of people…. [Coe called for] ‘total unity. Two, or three, become one…. It’s called a covenant. Two, or three, agree? They can do anything. A covenant is … powerful. Can you think of anyone who made a covenant with his friends? … Hitler. Yes,’ Doug said. ‘Yes, Hitler made a covenant. The Mafia makes a covenant. It is such a very powerful thing. Two, or three, agree.’ “

The repeated message, that barbaric and evil power becomes good when Jesus controls it, was delivered to the residents, a captive audience of the cult, “at the Family’s four-story, red brick Washington town house, … at 133 C Street S.E.,” just around the corner from the Congressional office buildings. At the time of the Harper’s article, “Eight congressmen, including Senator Ensign and seven representatives lived there….”

In 1985, Congressman Tom DeLay (R-Tex.), then in his first term, was a terrible drunk, his life crashing. The Fellowship/Prayer Breakfast organization took him under its protection and brainwashing regime, as it did with key personnel in the military and elsewhere, a network of far-right intrigue throughout government.

But in the 1980s, the Fellowship was unknown to the public. What then was the official name of the organization running this nightmare on C Street? It was Youth With A Mission.

EIR’s interviews with former YWAM staff members have allowed us a glimpse at the internal operation of the group. The 133 C Street house, the Washington headquarters for Youth With A Mission, was headed by Ron Boehme (pronounced “Baymie”). The program in the 1980s was precisely that described in the 2003 Harper’s article, capturing control of Congress and government, using Buchman’s pagan-oracle “talks with God,” etc.

As it happens, this same Ron Boehme, now a YWAM leader in Washington State, is as of the time of this writing, a candidate for state legislature (26th District, Kitsap County) in the Republican primary to be held Sept. 19.

Interviewed by a local publication, candidate Boehme, boasting of his former importance, spoke somewhat openly about the arrangements over the past quarter century at 133 C Street S.E., Washington.

Speaking of himself in the third person, he said “Ron joined Youth With A Mission—one of the world’s largest youth/service organizations. YWAM has 11,000 full-time staff and 25,000 short-term workers that serve in 140 nations around the world…. Ron has founded Youth With A Mission centers in Washington D.C., Virginia, and the state of Washington…. He served in Washington, D.C. during the Reagan Revolution, and started a center on Capitol Hill in 1980 that continues to this day and houses 2% of the U.S. Congress (its first resident being Congressman Steve Largent).”[4]

Reporting to London

The international chairman of Youth With A Mission is now Lynn Green, who is also the head of YWAM in England. On Aug. 7, as the group’s hoax 9/11 docudrama was getting set to air on ABC, director David Cunningham spoke about the project at a meeting at YWAM’s International Chairman’s headquarters in Harpenden, England.

Now that the blow has been struck, and 13 million Americans saw the Clinton Administration portrayed on the program as responsible for the 9/11 attack, jubilant YWAM Chairman Lynn Green is preparing his own report. On Oct. 5, Green will be the featured speaker at the 2006 “City Prayer Breakfast.” This is the inner core of the Buchman/Fellowship/Prayer Breakfast initiative: leading private bankers from the City of London financial district, and their allies within the British government and military establishment, a faction using theocratic intrigues for fascism, permanent war, and world empire.

Whose purpose are you fulfilling?

Youth today are desperate to find their purpose in this world; to make this world a better place to live. They are constantly made to feel as though they have to do something on a bigger scale, something that will CHANGE the world. Change is what it’s all about. Change seems to be the only absolute for the world. But where has this intense desire for change popped up from? Why are young people made to feel that they need to be part of the big picture, to come out of the own little world and try to do something for the world? This seems to be a recent mindset, and it’s surely PLANNED!

As their (the globalists’) knowledge of genetic engineering advances, the intent is to create a slave class of purpose made humans to serve the elite. As part of the new society they seek to create, the elite seek to control reproduction in a scientific manner. Ultimately, they seek to control/restrict reproduction scientifically and create hermaphroditic slaves/beings who will be granted permission to reproduce and only be given that permission if they have proven their worth to the state.

As we leave the age of Pisces and enter the age of Aquarius, the elite plan to create a completely new and different society in which only those with a purpose to serve the world state will be born. – The Globalist Agenda

The Globalists/Elites/Illuminati have already conditioned the minds on this generation of living with a “purpose” (which meets their agenda). With the havoc they have created globally over the past century and continue to do so now, they have met their goal of conditioning the youth to want to do something for the world – and that is CHANGE. Sadly, this is not happening in the secular societies only but also within the Christian circles. The main purpose of a Christian ministries locally or internationally is to brainwash young people into wanting to be part of the change; to bring about the change that the secret society at the top wants. It’s got nothing to do with saving souls, but everything to do with globalism.

False teacher Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven  movement has brought about this agenda of conditioning people to have a ‘purpose’ for globalism from a “Christian” perspective. Those who are rooted in God’s Word would never succumb to this conditioning; and Warren knows that. So he decides to come up with his Purpose-Driven Life, where he’s manipulated the Scripture to support his intentions. Warren is highly influential worldwide with his books selling in local languages.

YWAM (Youth With A Mission) is the fastest growing mission globally with literally thousands of youth joining each year. Because I’ve been part of it in the past, I know too well regarding its real deal. In the name of God, they spread a different gospel which is no Gospel at all. I have witnessed decent orthodox youngsters turn worldly by the time they finish the Discipleship Training School (DTS; a 6-month entrance course into YWAM). Why is this so? The main tactic of the DTS is to take the holy fear of God out of their minds, giving them the delusion that God loves them regardless of what they do. Also, the DTS brainwashes them to believe that it’s God’s “DREAM” to change the world, and that His heart “BREAKS” seeing the state of the world today, whether it’s corruption, environment, ethics etc. Church, God does not dream, and it has nothing to do with changing the world. He wants individual souls saved from eternal fire! The Bible itself testifies that God Almighty will destroy this world. Why try to make it better and lose your soul? It’s all manipulation of the global Elites! Watch your life and your doctrine!

These Globalists sitting at the top aren’t fools, but it’s evident that common people are, including the Church. There is mass conditioning happening today. They want humans to do that which they want. And Christian youth is losing sleep over the lie that they need to be part of this global peace movement because without a global purpose they are made to feel stupid by everyone around them! This is to lead to the New World Order.


YWAM’s School of (Worldly) Music in (Compromised)Missions

School of Music in Missions (SOMM) is  a discipleship based training school that trains musicians in the areas of Christian character, contemporary Christian music, music performance, missions, and other topics as well. The SOMM should not be the first step into music ministry, but could be the “next” step for those who desire to use their musical gifts in missions. (YWAM Perth)

I did the SOMM in India. We had students with amazing talents and skills to perform. They were seriously dedicated and hardcore musicians. Their inspiration? Secular music! We were constantly encouraged to listen to secular musicians and “learn” from them. We were brainwashed into believing that there’s no difference between secular and Christian music. (Contemporary christian music is inspired by secular artists.) This is true since CCM is an offshoot of secular music. Students were encouraged to “be themselves”, which meant they could get tattooed, piercings etc. It was pure worldliness in Christian clothing. Me being naive and undiscerned, got pulled in with all that. God was only approached to meet our agenda.

YWAM celebrates “Christian” rock. They used to hold a rock concert where CHRISTIANS would act like pagan worshippers banging their heads (I stand guilty) and the singer ripping out this throat while the guitarists would go on screeching. It was madness! (You’d be called names if you spoke evil of it…) And after the event everyone will be “feeling so good letting it out”! I wish I could go back and stand against this compromise. YWAM has intentionally overlooked the serious consequences of bridging the sacred and the secular. It is a mind-controlling organization, convincing anyone that it is unbiblical to distinguish the sacred from the secular.
