The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. John 10:10a NKJV Satan is the god of this world (see 2 Corinthians 4:4 and 1 John 5:19), is the “father of lies” (see John 8:44), and his job description is to “steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” In order to achieve his aims, he most often lies to us and deceives us. Satan often disguises his forces to make them look like natural problems so you’ll fight them with natural weapons. But you cannot fight a spiritual foe with natural weapons but with spiritual weapons, i.e. speaking God’s word to the devil and his demons. Unfortunately satan can disguise himself as an “angel of light,” so it is possible to be deceived by an innocent and apparently correct Christian teaching (see Matthew 24:4, 24:5; Mark 13:5, 13:6; and Luke 21:8). Often these inaccurate or incomplete teachings focus on God’s love and blessings (thus appealing to our flesh and so lead us astray (see Mark 13:22 and 1 Timothy 4:1) and do not mention His greatness, or our need to obey Him and have a reverential fear of Him. This book aims to help reveal satan’s lie and deception strategies and so empower Christians to live the Christian life that God intended. “Great book, interesting and well written based on solid evidence, documented, and not on flights of fancy or fanciful digressions or comforting in a fantastic book where you can find and discover the birth of the religion best known to the world. Through the dialogue structure, the reading is easier even if the terminology is researched and complex. At first glance it may seem pedantic, but you will be fascinated by the events described that so well dot the book.” -- Kalyan Panja , Booktica - Book Reviews

This is a story about the actions of young men after World War II who reacted to the commencement of a new war in Korea. These young men voluntarily entered the U.S. Navy, were taught to fly and were sent off to Korea on Aircraft carriers to harass the enemy. There were a number of young heroes who died in training and in combat. Coincidentally, all were 23 years of age so the title. It is in their memory and memory of all who served so valiantly that this book was written. I dedicate this book to my wife, Irene, who has encouraged me to complete this effort with her love and support.

Speak Your Healing from the Homosexual Deception

The lies of homosexuality dissipate because a life of purity in Christ Jesus decidedly removes the homosexual deception.

The lies of homosexuality dissipate because a life of purity in Christ Jesus decidedly removes the homosexual deception. Each step toward Jesus brings us closer to His image, and we are changed. We emerge free to be exactly whom Father God created us to be. Leaving all secrets with honesty and transparency before God and man, forgiving ourselves and all abusers, we emerge in our true identity with a heterosexual desire. This desire for the opposite sex is as natural as apple pie. Leaving the judgments, the facades, the sins, and all idols, the stark truth remains. Our true identity is found in Jesus Christ alone.

Can we really know what waits for us in the afterlife? Deceived by the Light... affirms that the Bible alone reveals all we need to know about life, death, and eternity. In the fascinating, mystical world of near death experiences, Betty Eadie's testimony is most extraordinary. In her widely read bestseller Embraced by the Light, she claims she met and conversed with the Lord Jesus Christ and received amazing revelations about spiritual progression, death, and the afterlife. Was Eadie's experience for real? And what about the many other near death testimonies that speak of visits to heaven or hell - are they credible? Should we believe their messages? Doug Groothuis, a well respected expert on new religious movements, takes us to the clear teaching of Scripture for some surprising answers. Along the way he clearly addresses the fears and questions many people have about death and what comes after.

THE BLOOD ATONEMENT DECEPTION

Biblically, both Jews and gentiles can receive forgiveness of sins through sincere repentant confessionary prayer directed to the God of Israel. This is true at all times and in all places.

THE ATONEMENT DECEPTION, explores the Christian theological fiction that belief in Jesus is the only way to receive divine forgiveness for one’s sins. Biblically, both Jews and gentiles can receive forgiveness of sins through sincere repentant confessionary prayer directed to the God of Israel. This is true at all times and in all places. There has never been a need for the so-called intercession role Jesus is supposed to play in attaining atonement. The facts speak for themselves. There is no truth to the Christian contention that Jesus died for our sins and salvation is only through Jesus. Jesus’ death does not bring atonement from sin nor is it in any way a fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

The Great Deception

To a considerable degree, these stories have been influenced, or even created, by the early church.

It is widely recognized by New Testament scholars that many of the sayings and actions attributed to Jesus in the gospels cannot be factually traced to him. To a considerable degree, these stories have been influenced, or even created, by the early church. Despite this gap between the Jesus of history and the Christ of faith, the contemporary church continues to represent the traditional New Testament canon as a generally accurate record of the life of Jesus.The Great Deception exposes the dangers that accompany this disingenuous, unscientific approach and calls for a more rigorous treatment of the gospels. In a clear, straightforward narrative, Gerd Lüdemann establishes the criteria by which he believes it possible to distinguish inauthentic from authentic sayings and actions of Jesus, and then shows which quotes and deeds can be regarded as factual. His radical conclusion is that the Jesus of history, who emerges after the falsehoods attributed to him are pared away, cannot support the traditional Christian faith.Lüdemann's historical analysis reveals, nonetheless, a Jesus who remains a deeply sympathetic personality and one of the great religious figures of the world. But it also shows that Christian leaders who ignore the results of sound scholarship are selling the faithful a great deception.Gerd Lüdemann is a professor of the history and literature of early Christianity at the University of Göttingen, Germany. Professor Lüdemann's published conclusions about Christianity aroused great controversy in his native Germany, where the Confederation of Protestant Churches in Lower Saxony demanded his immediate dismissal from the theological faculty of his university. Despite this threat to his academic freedom, he has retained his post at the university, although the chair he holds was renamed to disassociate him from the training program of German pastors. Lüdemann is also the author of Jesus After 2000 Years, Paul: The Founder of Christianity, and The Resurrection of Christ: A Historical Inquiry.

Subtle Deception

Modern misguided evangelical empire-building at the institutional church level has systematically for the most part, attempted to replace Christianity with its own brand of organized religion. This subtle deception has taken more than 1,700 years to develop and permeate society and typical Christian thought, but develop well it has So well, in fact, that even some of the greatest ministry personalities of our time have made the mistake of thinking that Christianity and organized religion are one and the same but they are not. What's wrong with organized religion you say? Did you suppose that's what Christianity was all about? Did you suppose that its church building origins are biblical? And what's the fuss anyway? Does it really matter if the Lord's people are more "organizationally" or "institutionally" minded than they are "relationally" minded? The author's opinion is that Purpose dictates the correct usage of what God designs. If we want to correctly use something God has designed, we must first discover God's original intent and purpose behind the creation of His idea. This work deals with the financial "skeletons in the Church's closet" and goes behind the scenes for God's design for the Body of Christ known as the "Church."

The Toronto Blessing (TB) was planned by charismatic leaders who saw their movement dwindling in numbers. Though planned, it became obvious that Satan took it over and the effects hit the churches worldwide like a runaway truck! It only lasted about two years, but its destructive force is still with us in the now mainstream charismatic movement. Many churches that allowed the TB through its doors thought it would save their existence and save souls, but it did not. Churches hit in the face by the vile movement were ruined, deceived and far from God. Thousands of individual Christians were shattered. The various manifestations were accepted and called as 'from God' though they were so blatantly satanic and wicked. When the storm passed, many churches were shamed into pretending it never happened, but they did not repent or publicly disown the movement. This book and others in the series MUST warn churches of a similar movement if it arises (which it will). Its history MUST be told.
