Eastern Meditation and Deception and Heresy in the
Church



Harry Potter is just one example of how the occult and
witchcraft have crept into the Church to lead astray children
and their parents. Eastern meditation has been given the name
contemplative prayer or centering prayer or breath
prayers by evangelical Christians and is becoming popular
in many American churches. As one example, Rick Warren
encourages people, in his book The Purpose Driven Life, to
repeat phrases over and over in a mantra similar to prayers
used by Zen Buddhism and Hindu yoga (h) (See Works Cited
at the end).

Brian McLaren, a leader in the emerging church movement, has endorsed heretical books by
people such as Tony Campolo (Speaking My Mind) and
Dave Fleming (The Seeker's Way). These authors
believe that Christianity is too limited and needs to be
joined with other religions (h).

Campolo writes: Beyond these models of
reconciliation, a theology of mysticism provides some
hope for common ground between Christianity and
Islam." (Tony Campolo. Speaking My Mind, pg. 149.)
(i)

Campolo told Charlie Rose: Im not convinced that
Jesus only lives in Christians. (Tony Campolo. Charlie
Rose show on January 24, 1997.) (i)

Tony Campolo believes that other religions have
Jesus in them somehow.

The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation

(A Buddhist monk is meditating. Eastern meditation has

(Tony Campolo [right] with Bill Clinton [center]. Source.)
John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me.

Acts 4:12 (bold / underline added)
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given
among men, whereby we must be saved.

1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;


Please notice again that the Bible says, Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none
other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must
be saved. (Acts 4:12). Only by the name of Jesus Christ can
people be saved. Buddha, Muammad, Hinduism, Mormonism,
etc. do not have the way of salvation. Their gods are not the true
Jesus Christ of the Bible. Only by the true Jesus Christ is there
salvation.

By denying that Jesus Christ is only in true Christianity (found in
the Bible), Campolo and other false teachers are teaching false
doctrines, denying Jesus Christ, teaching a false, new-age
christ.

Is it any wonder, then, that 33 percent of the Christian teens
surveyed in a 2010 survey (at Reach Workcamps ministry sites
across the country) believe that Jesus, Buddha, Islam, and other
religions all lead to heaven? According to Mike Nappa, who was responsible for the survey, the
kids were cream of the crop coming from Christian homes (j). Christian parents and pastors
are not doing their job and the kids themselves are buying into the lies promoted at schools and
by false teachers.

Homosexuality


The moral foundation of America has been eroded severely, so
much so that many Christian denominations have either
embraced sodomy as acceptable or have warmed up to the idea
that sodomy is not so bad. Some even have homosexual
pastors. The Presbyterian Church (USA) voted, last June, to
allow gay people to be ordained and for Presbyterian pastors
to conduct gay ceremonies (k). They redefined marriage as a
union of two people (k).

(Click for source.)
Many other denominations have warmed up to the belief that being gay is not against the Bible.
But, what does Gods Word actually say about homosexuality?

Romans 1:24-27

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own
hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more
than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did
change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust
one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in
themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

This is not very popular, but it is the truth. 1 Corinthians 6 speaks about sodomy and other sins

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not
deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit
the kingdom of God.




Idolatry


Idolatry is mentioned in this list. America is full of idolatry so much so that a famous TV show is
called American Idol. Idolatry is defined by God as: Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
(Exodus 20:3).

Jesus told us this regarding idolatry
Luke 16:13-15
13 No servant can serve two masters: for either
he will hate the one, and love the other; or else
(America is full of idolatry so much so that
a famous TV show is called American Idol. Source.)
he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided
him.
15 And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God
knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the
sight of God.

Loving money or things or ones own plans over God Himself are all forms of mammon (love of
money). No person can serve both God and themselves (or money). It is either
one or the other, not both. There are also two paths one can walk on. One
cannot walk on both of them: only on one path. Jesus Christ said this is
Matthew 7:

Matthew 7:13-14
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there
be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which
leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.



Conclusion


We have looked at some of the things that have provoked Gods anger against America. This has
just been a sample. God judged ancient Israel when they rebelled against Him and served Baal.
They also sacrificed their sons and daughters to their god Moloch. Is abortion (the murder of
unwanted babies any different)? Is their worship of what their own hands have made any
different than what most Americans (including so called
Christians) worship today?

Instead of crowding out God with statues, most
Americans crowd Him out with entertainment, false
religions, hobbies, interests, friends, family, work, etc.
Sports and movies and video games are just some of
these idols. Please read this passage again:


(Walk the narrow way. Source.)


1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (bold / underline added)

9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not
deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit
the kingdom of God.


Idolaters will not inherit the kingdom of God. These sins are some of the many sins of America.
Will America prolong its days as it continues to sin against God? Will God ignore the sin and
rebellion and witchcraft being done in America? Will He ignore the fact that His name is
constantly being defamed and blasphemed?

Gods judgment will not wait forever. Are you prepared for it to come? Are you prepared for
standing before the judgment seat of Jesus Christ? Have your sins been washed away by the
blood of Jesus Christ?




Would you like to find out how to Know God's Name
Personally?


IF YOU ARE SEEKING TO KNOW GOD, please read this message.

God loves us so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins and
shed His precious blood to pay for all of these sins. (See John 3:16 and 1 Corinthians 15:3-5.)

If you repent (turn away) from your sins (Acts 3:19), and believe and confess aloud that Christ
has done this for you (Romans 10:9-10), and have made Him your Lord and Savior (again
Romans 10:9-10) you are saved.

Now seek God with all your heart. Seek to know Him and you will (Jeremiah 29:13).

John 17:3 says: "And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus
Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Jeremiah 29:13 says: And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all
your heart.
