Tragically today’s professing Churches are filled with many many false teachers, false prophets, signs n wonders that are outright Christian Cults. Who are they and why did Jesus warn of so much about deception Matthew 24:4-5, Luke 21:7-8, and in 2 Corinthians 11:1-4 the Apostle Paul warns of Another Jesus & Another Gospel!? What’s that all about? Who are they and why is it different? We will examine the major movements their false gospels, but most importantly how they subtly deny Jesus: Hence another Jesus.
Our guiding scripture today is 2 Corinthians 11:1-4 In Christ Jesus -Josh
“For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.”
Below we have compiled, read, and studied the many various cults out there. Everything from Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Liberal Theology, Christian Witches, Christian Science, The NAR, Oneness Pentecostalism, The Way International, Universalist and so many more including a host of New Age infiltration via meditation techniques and more. Just browse the images and short introductions to each movement and tap or click on the images to go to the various articles. Rate the articles and leave comments for everyone’s edification. God Bless you as you continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus.
Many today believe that it is wrong to expose error and to name names. Those who are faithful in exposing error according to the Bible are now being widely denounced, and are accused of being unloving and unkind. In this article we intend to present the teaching of the Bible on this vital subject. One of the most misused verses in the Bible is, “Judge not, that ye be not judged” (Matthew. 7: 1). Every Scripture verse should be read in its context if we are to properly understand the true meaning. In vs. 2-5 of this same chapter it is evident that v. 1 is referring to hypocritical judgment. A critical must-read.
discussing terminology and its dishonest recasting by cult systems, to resort to occasional polemic utterances. In such cases, the Christian should be certain that they are tempered with patience and love so that the cultist appreciates that such tactics are motivated by one’s personal concern for his eternal welfare and not simply to “win the argument.” A Christian must attempt to lead the cultist to a review of the importance of properly defining terms for all-important doctrines involved, particularly the doctrine of personal redemption from sin, which most cult systems define in a markedly unbiblical manner. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me (John 10:27)
In the epistle of Jude, we receive a very sober warning about men who would creep into the Church and change the very essence of the gospel. Then read the following list of recommending Church Audit for “How Biblically Inclusive is Your Church”. We also linked to a helpful article to identify the progressive lies promoted by Tim Keller, ReVoice, and other liberal nonsense masquerading as Evangelical Christians. “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. -Jude 1:4
A Historical Review of Progressive Doctrines: Tares Among Us. So, in fact, this has been underway for some time. It probably began to get a real foothold in our present time with Norman Vincent Peale’s “Power of Positive Thinking” theology, quickly adapted by Rev. Robert Schuller who was really the first modern “megachurch” and “Seeker Friendly” church pastor. Their ideas were once considered a bit of an aberration from mainstream Christian doctrine. But here we are decades later, and seeker-friendly and power of positive thinking are normal and unchallenged. The crack into Bible-based evangelical churches had begun to open just a little…
Treason: “…the act or attempted act of working for the enemies of the state … betrayal of trust; disloyalty….” Webster Dictionary “…the infiltration tactic in this country would have to adapt itself to American conditions…. In the earliest stages it was determined that with only small forces available it would be necessary to concentrate Communist agents in the seminaries and divinity schools. The practical conclusion drawn by the Red leaders was that these institutions would make it possible for a small Communist minority to influence the ideology of future clergymen…. Welcome to the origins of the Social Gospel…Called “Father of the Social Gospel,” Walter Rauschenbusch (1861-1918)
In verse 4 of his epistle, he wrote, “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 4 identifies the apostates by certain characteristics. They are ungodly because they supplant God’s sovereign authority with an authority of their own. Apostates turn the grace of God into a commodity that can be bought, bartered, or merited. They pervert the gospel of grace into a gospel of works. They deny the supremacy and sovereignty of Christ and give His divine attributes and titles to others.
Warren Smith discusses the New Age and it’s explosive growth in the Church. Oprah, Joel Osteen, Brian McLaren, and Rick Warren have all helped further the dreams of occultist Alice Bailey to use the Church to herald the coming of the New Age by using “…occultism awakening the mystical faculties” Alice Bailey, (believing that we were on the threshold of a new spiritual awakening) said that this new enlightened age would come, not around the Christian church, but rather through it. She said the outer layers would be initially kept intact (i.e., Christian terminology would still be used) but the changes would take place obscurely from the inside.
Warren Smith discusses the wildly popular book “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. Learn insights into the spirit behind the voice that spoke with author Sarah Young. Are the teachings in the devotions consistent with biblical teachings or are they something else? Warren Smith a former New Ager probes the phrase “Presence” which occurs over 300 times and the New Age nuances that proliferate this popular teaching. “Smith raises Ten Concerns about the original book God Calling, which entered the Christian world in 2005, and Twenty Concerns about Sarah Young’s Jesus Calling, which has more recently taken the evangelical world by storm.” -Sarah H. Leslie
What is the heart of this Marxist creation? A Theology of hate from front to back, no reconciliation. Completely unbiblical! Here it is in a nutshell: “Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.  This is a direct quote from when a Marxist ideology clothes itself with Christian terms. The fruit is hate.
The Latter Rain movement of the late ’40s had given birth to numerous other sub-teachings. The Manifest Sons of God has divided into two major sects. “the doctrine of the Rapture was a great and effective ruse of the enemy to implant in the Church a retreat mentality”… Rick Joyner Manifest Sons’ teachings are Kingdom Dominionist: they believe in the restoration of the Church, restoration of the 5 fold ministry with the offices of apostles and prophets, having authority through its leaders by strong shepherding and discipleship… This whole teaching is based on a distortion of (Romans 8:19) which speaks of the “Manifestation of the Sons of God.”
If our ‘leaders’ have spent a few minutes doing a little more than bending over backward to accommodate anything and everything that is put out there, they would have found that the very expression “a common word between us and you” is not only explicitly derived from the Qur’an (Surah Al-i’Imran 3:64), , urge Christians and Jews to become Muslims, calls the Jews and Christians “polytheists” and asks them why they dispute that which they have no knowledge about. In fact this “common word” is that none but Allah is to be worshipped. Read the verse in context [All Emphasis Added] Excerpt from below.

In this first article we will look into the Origins of the Third Wave. As we move along I will bring into view the origins, the players, agenda, influences, and prophetic implications of what I will call a cult right upfront. We will see that the shakers and movers have another gospel and another Jesus. (2 Corinthians 11:3-4) The preponderance of evidence from their sources and quotes is staggering in light of the revelation of scripture. The overarching theme is “can we trust the Bible?” or do we need “New Revelation”? I will endeavor to painstakingly document these leaders and hold it up to the word of God. You decide.
We offer another article on Rick Warren and the Purpose Driven Church. This movement and model may be well-meaning, but we can observe the doctrinal devastation left in its wake for the sake of Church Growth. How do we determine if your Church has gone Purpose Driven? Some key indicators are listed succinctly below. This is a profound change; it is a total departure from what the Scriptures teach the church should be. It is a change that involves a change of vision. It is a change that involves a takeover of the church by those who have a totally unbiblical vision for the church. We have seen it everywhere.
Ultimately all cults find a way to twist the scriptures and preach another Jesus and another gospel. (2 Corinthians 11:4, Galatians 1:6-10). We must be able to discern that not all who claim the name of Jesus really know Jesus. Counterfeits are made to pass as the real thing. Doctrine is teaching and many cults do a far better job of teaching the cultist what they believe than do many Churches what Christians believe. A sad commentary today is Mormons convert more Baptists and Catholics because they don’t know why they believe what they believe. All of us will have the opportunity to witness the truth about the cults and true love will risk offending the person to save that soul from a Christ-less eternity.
What do the two accreditation organizations – Association of Theological Seminaries and Association for Biblical Higher Education – have in common? Both associations require schools that wish to be accredited to include Spiritual Formation within the school’s infrastructure. Just what exactly does that mean for these 350 some seminaries and Bible colleges? Well, it means that if they want to receive and maintain their accreditation, they are going to have to incorporate Spiritual Formation (i.e., contemplative spirituality) A belief system that uses ancient mystical practices to induce altered states of consciousness into the lives of their students.
Rob Bell’s Corrupt Bibliology: Below is a telling admission from the Bell’s in this 2004 Christianity Today article. Note that they do not adhere to the Bible. To them, it is a human product. The process is ALWAYS the same. “This is not just the same old message with new methods,” Rob says. “We’re rediscovering Christianity as an Eastern religion, as a way of life. Legal metaphors for faith don’t deliver a way of life. We grew up in churches where people knew the nine verses why we don’t speak in tongues but had never experienced the overwhelming presence of God.”-Rob Bell
A Call for Discernment. This seminar is a fair, comprehensive, biblical critique of the modern Word of Faith movement. Word of Faith theology (WoF) dominates Christian satellite and cable television and is making alarming inroads into more theologically conservative, evangelical churches. This seminar contains dozens of audio and video clips (primarily the latter) of various WoF leaders such as Benny Hinn, Kenneth and Gloria Copeland, Jessie Duplantis, Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Creflo Dollar, etc. incorporated into a PowerPoint format. This format allows people to see and hear for themselves what these individuals are actually teaching. Everything then is, in turn, balanced with Scripture.
I have a man that I work with that is a Jehovah Witness. He is an elder with the Kingdom Hall. He is a pleasant enough man. We have over the years had some good dialogue. How do we as Christians penetrate the cultist influence of a person who desperately needs to know the REAL JESUS. It is God and not us who will bring them out of this counterfeit religion. My heart goes out to them. I love them! I have learned from the great apologists of the past and present is to give them something to think about. So I give them one or two penetrating questions that may lead them out of the stranglehold of the Watch Tower. How tragic that so many multiplied millions of religious folk have a form of godliness but deny the Lord who bought them.
IS A MORMON A CHRISTIAN? My mother was a Mormon. I had the pleasure of leading her out of the Mormon Church. We love Mormons and we really want you to know what the difference is between Christianity and Mormonism. The Bible is full of warnings of deception and the rise of false prophets. How can we know? Mormon salvation is defined as the resurrection of all persons from the dead, followed by celestial glory for those who have closely followed the Mormon faith. Mormon males, who attain to the “priesthood”, will become exalted beings (gods – D&C 132:20), who will rule over their own worlds (planets) and will eternally procreate spirit children to populate those worlds (the doctrine of “eternal increase”).
Eastern mysticism and humanism have been making steady inroads of late into the Christian Church. Beware of any teacher telling you that you can be “a god”, or “part of God” or the “Godhead” or “Godfamily”. Especially be on guard for those calling God a “Godforce”. Remember that the original lie that Satan whispered in Eve’s ear way back in the Garden of Eden was that she could be “as God” or “a god”. Watch out for the groups that humanize God and deify man. Without fail, the Cults have done away with salvation by GRACE alone. Their salvation is always GRACE PLUS WORKS, and in their organizations, you can never be SURE of your salvation until your death, or “until Armageddon”.
Whenever we, as biblical Christians, think that things couldn’t possibly become more preposterous in Christendom, we need to call to mind the Scriptures that tell us that the time will come when Christians will not endure sound doctrine, and many will corrupt the Word of God (2 Timothy 4:3; 2 Corinthian 2:17; 2 Peter 3:16). The Apostle Paul further declares to Timothy that those who bring such doctrines shall turn people away from the truth to fables, that is, myths, of their own invention (2 Timothy 4:4; Titus 1:14) Today, such teachings and practices are increasing at a staggering rate—practices that range from the patently absurd to the insidious, even menacingly dangerous, both spiritually and physically.
Seventh-day Adventists put forth a very Christian veneer. What does the official SDA doctrine teach and where did it come from? What facts won’t they tell you? They won’t tell you that they consider themselves to be the only, true, remnant Church. Their prophetess, Ellen G. White, whom they revere and believe without question has told them that “…Satan has taken full possession of the Churches”. (Spiritual Gifts V.l,p.189-90) They also believe our prayers are an “abomination” to God. (Spiritual Gifts, V1 p.190). They believe that your Christian church and pastor are the tools of Satan.
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.” Matthew 22:29. I have highlighted some of the points by Dr. Martin. I found him witty and if the topic wasn’t so serious even comical at times. As he points out that not one church or denomination that has fallen into liberal theology did not first corrupt it’s Bibliology, not one! They entrap, control, and dominate our churches, denominations, and our learning institutions. It is all documented and historically factual. It is a slow fade into oblivion. Liberal men are now the bastions of higher education as Jude’s tiny block of C4 blows the liberal out of the water by exposing the thoughts and intents of their evil hearts.
Can the Church borrow the marketing tools of the world and apply them to the Church? What is the history of the Church Growth movement and its false premises? Who is involved in the new evangelicalism and second reformation? Why are these movements embracing contemplative mysticism? How does this movement play into the New World Order? These questions and more are answered in Church of Tares: Purpose Driven, Seeker-Sensitive, Church Growth & New World Order.
Chrislam is a new move of Ecumenical Syncretism of blending Christianity with Islam. What is it and where did it come from? Why we should avoid it? What does Islam teach about Jesus or the Isa (Islamic) version of Jesus that Ecumenical Pope Rick Warren invoked? We compare scripture with scripture to see the spirit of antichrist which opposes the gospel of God’s Son. 1 John 2. We warn the flock of God of this unbelievable ignorant move to clearly a deception to move Christians into further compromise among many liberal and new evangelicals. Ephesians 5:11
Isaiah ch. 40 thru 49. The Trial of the false gods. We highlight the fact that God demonstrates who He says He is and authenticates that He is the Only True God. How you ask… Prophecy, God demonstrates and calls all false religious systems and so-called gods to tell us what is coming. A powerful eye-opening series on the purpose and scope of God’s wonderful word. We see that God shares what He is doing with His friends in Genesis 17 & John 15. Not a gloom and doom message, but one of encouragement for those who love the Lord!
Early on, the UN’s World Health Organization (WHO), headed by Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, did everything possible to downplay the severity of the Coronavirus. Ghebreyesus, an Ethiopian socialist revolutionary who is a close ally of China, clearly wanted to protect China’s image. Ghebreyesus happens to be a strong advocate for universal health coverage, regularly speaks on the impacts of global climate and environmental change, and wants to dramatically transform and empower the World Health Organization is a devout globalist.
LA Sheriff’s Dept. On New Surveillance Program: We Knew The Public Wouldn’t Like It, So We Kept It A Secret. God has warned in the Bible where this system is heading. The 666 Surveillance System is now on the fast track. There is no stopping it. Are you going to be with Jesus Christ and eternal life, or are you going to take the “666 Mark” and be eternally damned? The stakes could not be higher: eternal life or eternal damnation. Now is the time to repent of sin and trust Jesus Christ as your Savior.
