Séances, Palm Readings, Auto-Writing & Other Occult Practices

A great flaw of Western Christianity is its profound ignorance and trivialization of the occult with its related activities. The Scriptures not only confirm their reality and danger, but they also consistently condemn any association with them (Leviticus 19:31, 20:6; 2 Chronicles 33:6; Galatians 5:19-20; Revelation 21:8). In fact, the church in Ephesus gives us an example of how occult practices were removed from the early church (Acts 19:11-20). No syncreticism (a blending of two or more belief systems) was allowed, as Christ alone was and is sufficient.  Condoning (or observing) occult practices … Read More >

The Renewing Of Your Mind

You give your anxiety to God, but an hour later its weight is back on your shoulders. You ask God to control your temper, but you blow your top. You pray that you will not lust; you even “reckon” yourself to be dead to sinful impulses. But the next day you can’t push that tall blonde out of your mind. You surrender yourself to God. And then so soon, so soon, so easily, revert to your old habits. You mean so well; I mean so well. Yet we fare so poorly. Why? Jesus told a story that illustrates the most … Read More >

The Meaning Of Membership

One of the chief concerns among Christians today is renewal in the church. We are seeing a new emphasis on the Holy Spirit and on spiritual gifts. Of course, there are some extremes and excesses; but there are also some genuine works going on to the glory of God. The New Testament churches were characterized by excitement and fulfillment. As you read the Book of Acts, for example, you meet men and women who were excited about their faith, sharing it with others, and experiencing a real fulfillment in their own lives. This is because the early church knew the … Read More >

Strength For The Battle

In the early part of this chapter, Paul has been opening his heart about the Christian ministry, as he spoke of a ministry of revelation he had received because “God had shined in his heart, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” Because of that character of ministry he was under a very deep sense of responsibility to communicate it to others. Therefore, “we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus our Lord, and ourselves your servants for His sake.” And in order that there might be through … Read More >

The Lie Of The New Spirituality

The Gospel According to Oprah and Her Friends Oprah Winfrey has always had a fondness for promoting guests who tout their New Age beliefs. But recently she has done so with focused determination, using her media empire to promote three authors and books whose views are deceiving millions. In doing so, she has become the high priestess of the New Spirituality, which can be simply defined as more occultism packaged for the Western mind. The authors are Eckhart Tolle, whose book The New Earth is flying off the shelves, breaking records for sales; Ronda Byrne, who wrote The Secret and … Read More >

Marrying Someone Of A Different Faith

Recently, our church receptionist let me know about a Christian woman who was seeking advice regarding a situation where her grandson was planning to marry a Jehovah’s Witness. I took the time to write a letter to her, and as I was doing so, I thought this could be of help to others facing similar situations. Below are some notes I jotted down for the letter I sent to her. Point One: Marrying someone who is of a different faith is a very bad idea. If anyone thinks they can persuade their future spouse to become a Christian, they’re almost … Read More >

The Lord's Call

The Lord called Samuel.” It is easy to understand that this was not a voice which others could hear or Eli could have heard it. The voice was very clear indeed to Samuel; Samuel was sure that some one had called him. This Scripture should show us that while others may be used of the Lord in clearing up our call and proving to us that it is the Lord and not man that is calling, yet the call must be heard by the one called and by him alone. How foolish we are when we expect others to … Read More >

The Woman And The Dragon

They overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.”—Revelation 12:11 Notes of a message given by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday, December 19, 1954. Amidst the world-struggle for survival, it is important that we should understand the real nature of the battle in which we, as Christians, are engaged. Paul said in Ephesians 6:12, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” I am not sure … Read More >

Conflict Of The Ages Between The Woman's Seed And Serpent

The dragon stood before the woman,…to devour her child.”—Revelation 12:4 This attitude on the part of Satan indicates persistent, relentless and aggressive opposition to the purposes of God in human redemption, to be accomplished through the seed of the woman. May we go back to the third chapter of Genesis, where the great conflict of the ages begins, and read a few verses. “Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman. Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of … Read More >
