“The Voice” is a Thomas Nelson publication. The owner of Thomas Nelson Publishing is Leo Hindery, a Jesuit trained business man who attributes his success in business to “lots of demons, and the Jesuits”, as described below.

SOUTHWICK: What gave you the ambition to go from sort of blue collar jobs to wanting to become, I guess, a businessman?

HINDERY: Lots of demons, lots of devils that have always caused me to want to succeed. I was blessed with some intellect; some intellectual curiosity as well, that just drove me. A lot of my early influences came from the Jesuits. I was Jesuit trained at both the high school level and at college, and that was a discipline and an environment that sort of forced you to excel, rewarded you for excellence, gave you this intellectual curiosity, and I always knew that I wanted to be something special. I don’t mean that self-servingly, but I did want to succeed and be well thought of. It was never about the money, it was just this sort of interest in excellence. I give a lot of the early, early credit to the Jesuits, later credit to Ed Littlefield, and in subsequent years Bill and John.

The Jesuits, starting with its founder, Ignatius of Loyola, has been a key player in the Counter Reformation of the Catholic Church, and has been a plague to the Protestants through inquisitions, crusades, and infiltration into Protestant circles. The Counter Reformation’s goal, was to bring the protestant nations, kings, and churches, back under the authority of the Pope. The Jesuits are known for operating according to their extreme Jesuit oath. To read the Jesuit Oat, click on the link entitled “The Jesuit Oath“.

“The Voice” translation is not the Bible, but a poor version of a paraphrased Bible, and it is promoted by a student of the Counter Reformation, which still exists today. These two facts does not put the new Bible translation in a good light.

The best Bible translation is not a paraphrased version, but a translation that is as close to the word for word translation of the Greek and Hebrews text as possible.

Book Review #1 – “I Declare” ~ By Joel Osteen

Joel Osteen’s latest book, “I declare”, is up for review by the Word of God.

According to Joelosteen.com

The words we speak set the course for our life. If you want to know what you’re going to be like in five years, listen to the words you are saying about yourself today.

Now you can take charge of your future with the help of Joel Osteen’s latest book-I Declare. Filled with 31 written declarations-one for each day-you can declare, in faith, God’s powerful Word over your life and watch your surroundings change in incredible ways. You will move forward to a promising future from the fruit of your words!

The question is, does the word of God support these powerful claims? Can believers in Christ use their faith in Christ to change their surroundings for their own personal benefit, and ensure, for themselves, through their spoken words, a promising future? Can believers, indeed, speak to stones, and see them turned into bread, because they are joint heirs with Christ?

No they cannot, and this sort of speech is boasting and evil:

James 4
13    Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
14    Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
15    For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
16    But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
17    Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.

This is akin to the deceptive temptation that Satan brought to Jesus:

Matthew 4
1    Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2    And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
3    And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4    But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

This sort of doctrine is evil, and from Satan himself.

Believers in Christ do not live according to their own will, nor do they use their faith in God to live according to their own will. Instead, they are commanded to live by the word of God – the gospel of Jesus Christ. The faith of Christ’s followers is for believing in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and this faith leads to living according to the teachings of Christ, and the gospel.

John 8
30    As he spake these words, many believed on him.
31    Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32    And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
34    Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
35    And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
36    If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Therefore, faith is not for living out a promising future, such as having a successful career. No. Instead, faith is for being justified before God, by believing in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection for sinners. This faith in Christ’s atonement then leads to a life of obedience to the teachings of Christ.

John 15
3    Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you.
4    Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
5    I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
6    If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned.

1John 5
14    And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15    And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.

Believers in Christ are to pray according to the will of Christ, and not their own will. Prayer according to Christ’s will is guaranteed to be answered. This is the will of Christ:

Matthew 6
9    After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10    Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11    Give us this day our daily bread.
12    And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

No where in the Bible is the law of attraction, through positive declarations, taught has a godly lifestyle. Instead, it is clearly condemned as evil, and Satanic.

Furthermore, Osteen, and the rest of these word of faith televangelists learned the law of attraction heresy from Kenneth Hagin, who taught the teachings of the Kabbalah as though it were the gospel, when it is really witchcraft.

It teaches that men are gods, and that they can manipulate the higher power in Heaven through the power of their will.

Osteen has subtly affirmed this heresy by telling people to boast as though they have creative power, by taking the same claim for themselves that God has claimed for himself, which is “I Am”.

Exodus 3
14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
Isaiah 47
8 Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, “I Am”, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:
9 But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.
10 For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I Am, and none else beside me.
11 Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put if off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

Isaiah 42
8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Romans 12
3    For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

The word of faith teachers claim that we can create our own reality by the power of our own will, by speaking the right words out loud.

The conclusion is that Christians therefore, should not be sick or poor, because they are gods, who are able to create their own reality.This is not the gospel, but a different religion; the Kabbalah.It is an earth-based/works-based salvation.

Christ came to into the world to be the payment for our sins, so that we can be made right with God by believing in the atoning work of his Son, and so that we could be raised from the dead to live forever with him (Romans 5:1-11 & Romans 6:1-5). That’s the gospel.

The gospel has nothing to do with men claiming to be gods, or creating their own reality. The Bible calls this heresy, of man claiming to be god, “the mystery of iniquity”, which is a heresy that will bring in the great tribulation (2Thessalonians 2:1-8). It is Satanic, and those who follow it will not inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:19-21).

It should be of no surprise that mankind will believe in a false god-man (2Thessalonians 2:8-12 & Revelation 13), since mankind is already claiming to be gods.

Therefore, Scripture commands us to run from people like Joel Osteen (2John 1:8-11 & Galatians 1:6-9). God’s curse is clearly upon them.

Galatians 1
6    I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7    Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8    But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9    As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

The New Christianity Pt. 7 – All Roads Lead to Rome

On March 6, of 2010, Cardinal William Levada, prefect for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (also known as the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition, from which arose the names Roman Inquisition, or Holy Inquisition, mainly used in reference to the 16th century tribunals against witchcraft and heresy), described the purpose for ecumenism in this way, “union with the Catholic Church is the goal of ecumenism.

This goal was also affirmed, and expounded upon, by Pope Paul VI, on October 28, 1965, as stated below:

Acknowledging all faiths as valid for knowing God:

From ancient times down to the present, there is found among various peoples a certain perception of that hidden power which hovers over the course of things and over the events of human history; at times some indeed have come to the recognition of a Supreme Being, or even of a Father. This perception and recognition penetrates their lives with a profound religious sense.

Places its own religion as the supreme religion of the world (Revelation 17:5):

The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men. Indeed, she proclaims, and ever must proclaim Christ “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6), in whom men may find the fullness of religious life, in whom God has reconciled all things to Himself.(4)

Heralds the social gospel, and world peace (1Thessalonians 5:1-3):

Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.

We act together in obedience to the one true God, the triune God of holiness and love, who has laid total claim on our lives and by that claim calls us with believers in all ages and all nations to seek and defend the good of all who bear his image.

For Your Health Pt. 12 – Harmful Side Effects of Antibiotics

Yahoo! Health

Antibiotics can save lives by fighting bacterial infections, but that’s not to say that they’re without risk. These strong medicines can have some alarming side effects, resulting in thousands of lawsuits each year.

What kinds of side effects do antibiotics cause?

It’s been estimated that over 140,000 emergency visits are made to the hospital each year due to antibiotic-associated side effects, with allergic reactions being the most common. “Minimizing unnecessary antibiotic use by even a small percentage could significantly reduce the immediate and direct risks of drug-related adverse events in individual patients,” a 2007 study showed.

Oral fluoroquinolones are the most popular antibiotics, and include Cipro (ciprofloxacin), Levaquin (levofloxafin) and Avelox (moxifloxacin). But taking these antibiotics increases your risk of developing a retinal detachment by five times compared with nonusers, a recent study shows.

Religious Intolerance & Blasphemy laws Pt. 7 – Freedom of Speech (just watch what you say)

The Blaze

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam but to be credible those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches destroyed or the Holocaust that is denied,” Obama proclaimed.

This is Obama’s final international address before the November elections — one that critics were playing close attention to. Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., John Bolton, had some stinging words for the president on Fox News this morning. When asked to grade the speech, he gave it a C.

“It was like a great big warm fuzzy blanket. The president comes out in favor of tolerance. There’s your breaking news,” Bolton quipped. “The problem with the speech was that it was infused with the fallacy of moral equivalency — that there‘s sort of extremism and intolerance everywhere and it’s all the same.”

The New Christianity Pt. 6 – The “New Age” Experience-Based Religion

The New Christianity was described by Alice Bailey (founder of Lucis Trust Publishing Company, which was originally named Lucifer Trust), in her book, “The Externalization of the Hierarchy”, in this way:

This is a transition period between the passing out of the Piscean Age, with its emphasis upon
authority and belief, and the coming in of the Aquarian Age, with its emphasis upon individual
understanding and direct knowledge. The activity of these forces, characteristic of the two signs,
produces in the atoms of the human body a corresponding activity. We are on the verge of new knowledges and the atoms of the body are being tuned up for reception. Those atoms which are
predominantly Piscean are beginning to slow down their activity and to be “occultly withdrawn,” as it
is called, or abstracted, whilst those which are responsive to the New Age tendencies are, in their turn,
being stimulated and their vibratory activity increased. ~ Externalization of the Hierarchy, Pg. 2

Bailey stated that authoritative teachings, and faith, is being replaced with individual understanding, and direct knowledge, which, also, is indicative of this post-modern era. This means that the new Christianity is to replace the importance of authoritative, biblical truths, with heartfelt feelings and experiences that will lock people into a strong delusion from which most will not return (2Thessalonians 2:8-12). This doctrine has the capability of single-handedly ending all that was regained by the Protestant Reformation.

Oprah Winfrey, who claims to be “Christian”, described this same “new age” spirituality when she stated that “God is not a doctrine to believe, but an experience to be had”. For more information on the spirituality of Oprah Winfrey, click on the link entitled “The Church of Oprah“.

The false Apostle, Bill Johnson, made reference to this “new age” spirituality when he spoke this way about following Christ, and knowing God:

“Those who feel safe because of their intellectual grasp of Scriptures enjoy a false sense of security. None of us has a full grasp of Scripture, but we all have the Holy Spirit. He is our common denominator who will always lead us into truth. But to follow Him, we must be willing to follow off the map—to go beyond what we know” ~ When Heaven Invades Earth: A Practical Guide to a Life of Miracles, Pg. 80

“The Nature of God is revealed in story form…because the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy…you’ve chosen, by your decree, what you want to draw into the atmosphere, in order to reinforce that which is born in the heart of God” ~ Bill Johnson – Was Jesus a ‘Born – Again

Johnson states that Christians are to follow Jesus by going outside of Scripture (the map), and what it has taught believers about God. He also stated that people come to know God when Christians tell their own personal stories about him, and that this is the spirit of prophecy. Furthermore, he said that this practice causes Christians to be able to change reality as though believers share in God’s creative power. This is simply a different way of teaching the word of faith, “law of attraction” heresy, which is very popular within the “new age” religion.

One perfect example of the “new age” spirituality of the new Christianity can be found in the video below. It is a clear display of experience over biblical doctrine, through a revival movement where the gospel of Jesus Christ is not preached, and no one seems to notice.
