By Larry DeBruynNOTE: 50% off - Light wear on cover due to shipping.“William P. Young's, "The Shack," offered the falsity of leaven bread and a spiritual paradigm millions were deceived to embrace. Young drew heavily upon a Universalism entirely antithetical to biblical Christianity. In this book, author Larry DeBruyn uncovers a well-documented trail from the pagan origins of the Emerald Tablet of Hermes to show beyond question, the seductive nature of a false and dangerous mysticism masquerading as a "refreshed Christianity." DeBruyn offers a sound, biblical apologetic against the popular notion that one's "experiences" trump God's Word & rational Truth. Writes Dr. Martin Erdmann, "Spiritualization of science...has unquestionably...proposed change from a traditional value system based on analytical and rational thinking to a holistic view which imagines all aspects of intellectual pursuit to be in harmony." A mystical monism has led to the emergence of a global community with a heightened sense of cosmic spirituality believed to permeate all existence. DeBruyn shows that when the image of God revealed in the Bible is seductively changed into gods and goddesses, a poly-gendered polytheism results. Once entrenched, a "sacred-sexual" on Earth is believed to mirror the sacred-sexual in Heaven, birthing the Gnostic notion of "as above, so below." Paganism views sex as a sacrament linking the human and the divine; changing the dynamic of "relationship" with God. Sensuality controls spirituality and divine mystery is reduced to vulgar lust. DeBruyn exposes these links to Pagan, philosophical theology, removing the mask by pointing the reader back to Scripture to see the difference. Discover the keys of Eternal Truth that unlock the shackles of sensual mysticism capturing generations of believers unaware. Escape the lure of mystical energies masquerading as the spirit of revival in today's lackadaisical church. A must read for Pastors and all serious believers. Accessible. There is no other book as pointed an apologetic in print.” - Amazon DescriptionBook Details116 pages | Softcover paperbackPublisher: Moeller Printing Company, Inc.; 1st Edition 2009 edition (2009)ISBN-10: 1616235462ISBN-13: 978-1616235468Product Dimensions: 8.4 x 5.8 x 0.7 inches

Is the emerging church movement just another passing fad, a more
contemporary approach to church, or a bunch of disillusioned young
people looking for answers? In fact, it is actually much broader and is
influencing Christianity to a significant degree. Grounded in a
centuries-old mystical approach, this movement is powerful, yet highly
deceptive, and it draws its energy from practices and experiences that
are foreign to traditional evangelical Christianity. The path that the
emerging church is taking is leading right into the arms of Roman
Catholicism and ultimately to an interfaith perspective that has
prophetically profound ramifications.Some topics this book addresses:

A compelling and hard-to-put-down book that takes the reader through a twenty-year period in the author's life. From her hitchhiking days in the seventies to being abandoned with four small children to raise, the story then takes a dramatic twist as she discovers what could potentially destroy her family. This crisis forces the young mother to go into hiding with her children to protect them. Author Bio: Catherine Brown is the author's pen name.Table of Contents and Chapter OneChapter TwoCustomer Reviews:Impacting Lives By: KimI wish to express my thanks to the author and her children who have opened their lives up to us. I would love for them to know that their book is impacting. In small ways resembles parts of my life, only in the extent that each life's story is unique. I have taken so many nuggets from the book, applying to my life, my children's lives, and the lives of those I get to minister God's love to; finding info helpful to all these areas. I am so thankful for her book. I appreciate you sharing that with them. Thank you!!An Important Battle and She Won! By: book wormI read this book in two days; I was glued and addicted! Thanks and kudos to the author, not only for her well-written and moving story, but for battling so strongly against that generational sin. Who'd have thought that an aimless hippie in her early days, would prove to be such a stellar warrior! Praise be to God....A true story By: K. PattersonThis was an important story. It was hard to read because of the horific nature of the abuse. I love to read testimonies about how the Lord changes peoples lives and how even if the circumstances of our lives seem unbearable, He never fails to holds us tight.From fear to faith By: J. LawsonLaughter Calls Me totally inspired me. Once I began the book I could not stop reading it. I read it from cover to cover in one sitting. Catherine Brown's testimony of perseverance and endurance in a seemingly hopeless situation encouraged me greatly. There are so many things in this life to be afraid of, especially as a parent for your children. I was afraid of all the scary things that could happen to my kids, but after finishing Laughter Calls Me, I was encouraged to leave all my fears with the God who made us and loves us better than anyone. Laughter Calls Me is a testimony of the faithfulness of a great and mighty God and His ability to deliver from the clutches of the sickest of sins. Our loving Father carried and guided Catherine through the darkest of darkness. This testimony is even more proof that there is nothing too hard for the Lord. God can reach into the sickest sin and bring beauty from it. As you finish this book you will come away fearing nothing but rather you will stand in awe of the One who is able to save us from all sin - our own and the sin of others. Laughter Calls Me will change your perspective and it will fix your gaze on the glory of the Lord! Read this book and see what great things He has done. He longs to do great things in your life too!Out of tragedies come blessings By: barbara wilhelmThe horrors of what Catherine went through would lead a reader to think that the impact of all this on the rest of her life would have surely been tragic. And except for the interventon of the Lord I am sure that would have been so. But intervene He did and it is so obvious that she have allowed the Lord to do a mighty work of healing in her life. Instead of bitterness flowing from this, there is love and a passion for the purity of truth. There is grace and mercy in what she does now. There is a Scripture in Psalms- Mercy and truth have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. That is perfect healing. The Lord has healed her wounds and that is why there is now so much fruit in her life. Oil cannot be released from a jar unless the jar has been broken. Then the oil can flow and heal others. Catherine has told her story in all of its horrid details, sparing her reader nothing. She has been broken and she tells of it. But she has also been healed and that healing gives her readers hope and healing themselves. From Hippie to Heroine By: Gloria H. PhillipsThe author writes well and quickly pulls the reader into the story. And a remarkable story it is. She easily could have died of an overdose while living the free-wheeling hippie life. But due to God's hand on her, her life was spared even when she was pursued by evil. Few have walked where she has in saving her children from their pedophile, pornographic father. She became a responsible, loving mother, devoted Christian and found a good life after her long circuitous searching. Inspirational. Gives hope to any family who has a member they think is hopeless. This book is being studied by our daughter's church in Allentown. A magnificently inspiring testimony.Public awareness and education (from back cover) By: Roger Young, Special Agent, FBI, RetiredRelying on her Christian faith as a support system, this story demonstrates Catherine's persistence and utilization of the greatest weapon against sexual exploitation of children - public awareness and education.
By Roger Oakland una nueva Reforma o la iglesia emergente…un engaño de los postreros días264 pages | SoftboundSpanish | Emerging ChurchISBN: 978-0-9791315-8-5Lighthouse Trails PublishingEs el movimiento de la iglesia emergente solamente otra moda pasajera, un enfoque contemporáneo de la iglesia, o una inconformidad de la gente joven buscando respuestas? En realidad, es algo mucho más extenso que todo esto, y está influyendo de manera significante en el Cristianismo actual. Basado sobre el misticismo antiguo de siglos pasados, este movimiento es poderoso pero altamente engañoso, tomando su empuje de prácticas y experiencias que son ajenas al Cristianismo bíblico. El camino de la iglesia emergente la lleva a abrazar una perspectiva de inter-espiritualidad que tiene un profundo significado profético. En realidad, es una nueva manera de ser Cristiano, y busca todas las formas posibles para introducir una nueva Reforma. Sin duda, impactará a todas las iglesias del mundo occidental y aún más allá de ellas. Detrás de esta nueva clase de iglesia hay una estrategia cuidadosamente diseñada por el príncipe de este mundo, el enemigo de nuestras almas, para verdaderamente deshacer y despedazar la fe de millones—y el resultado será nada menos que la fe desechada.Algunos temas que La fe desechada enfoca:° La espiritualidad contemplativa y el misticismo° La nueva misiología: mantenga su propia religión, y sólo añada a ella Jesús ° La evangelización Eucarística° La iglesia emergente: camino a Roma° Una vista emergente del futuro del planeta tierra° El ecumenismo con propósito: una parte de la nueva reforma de la iglesia emergente° Las metas de la iglesia emergente y su perspectiva de los postreros díasAutor Bio: Roger Oakland es autor y conferencista; también fundador de Understand the Times International.

By David James (Foreward by T.A. McMahon)Does Isaiah 9:10 Really Contain An Ancient Mystery That Holds The Secret To America's Future?AMERICA UNDER GOD'S JUDGMENT?This exclusive new book from The Berean Call encourages—and enables—readers to separate fact from fiction!In The Harbinger: Fact or Fiction? author David James exhaustively documents and responds to the serious flaws found throughout the New York Times best-seller from Charisma Media, The Harbinger. Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn believes he has discovered an "ancient mystery" in Isaiah:9:10 that "explains everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy.” As Cahn states at the beginning of his book “What you are about to read is presented in the form of a story, but what is contained within the story is real.” Many have accepted Cahn’s message as being genuinely from God. However, David James has clearly demonstrated that The Harbinger falls far short of meeting the biblical requirements for such a message from God, being based on the mishandling of Scripture, faulty theology, misleading statements, the selective use of historical facts, and unsupported speculation.What others are saying about The Harbinger: Fact or Fiction?:

Jeremiah 5:30-31Five years after writing Deceived on Purpose: the New Age Implications of the Purpose Driven Church, former New Age follower Warren Smith continues to reveal how Christian leaders wittingly or unwittingly are leading the church into a spiritual trap. A "Wonderful" Deception examines church metaphors, concepts, and beliefs that are essentially the same as those being used in today's New Age teachings. And while biblical prophecy is being minimized and explained away, the "new science" is being used to prepare the world--and the church--to accept a New Spirituality and a false New Age Christ. This book explains how all the puzzle pieces are in place for the strong delusion described in 2 Thessalonians. A "Wonderful" Deception pierces right into the heart of this deception while preparing believers in Jesus Christ to effectively stand against it.Click here to preview the Table of Contents, Preface, and IntroductionDebut Article: Will the "New Science" Prove That God is "in" All Things?Some key areas addressed in this book:

By T.A. McMahonKingdom. Power. Glory. Dominion. Delusion?157 pages | SoftcoverPublisher: The Berean Call, 2011ISBN: 978-1-928660712 AT THIS VERY MOMENT, millions of professing Christians are joining with millions of other “believers” to promote peace and reconciliation across the country and around the globe. These pragmatic, purpose-driven churches and organizations are uniting for the ecumenical “common good” to eliminate poverty, eradicate disease, and save the earth from political and environmental disaster—all in the name of advancing “God’s kingdom on earth.” But are all of these good works derived from a biblical blueprint for humanity? Or are these well-meaning workers building a house on foundations of sand?Many of these faithful individuals and groups are laboring to “restore America” to a faith, freedom, and prosperity that they believe is biblical. Meanwhile, what the Bible says about the future of humanity—and the earth itself—is ignored in the name of “tolerance,” “love,” and non-judgmentalism. This raises a grave concern: Are any of these “kingdom-building” efforts bringing eternal life and salvation to the lost? Or are millions of professing Christians merely befriending the world in ways that create enmity with God? Furthermore, is the great commission of the church being compromised by ignoring the clear and unmistakable roadmap in Scripture concerning End Times events, including Christ’s “catching up” of the saints? Does it really matter what one believes about the Rapture in these increasingly perilous times?If you seek to understand current church trends in the light of God’s revealed and perfect Word, you’ll find this easy-to-read volume both helpful and heart-pricking concerning the true state of the church today. In the process, you’ll discover that what you believe about “controversial” Last Days doctrines should indeed impact the direction and focus of our daily Christian walk—encouraging and equipping us to “redeem the time.”Contents: 1.

By Roger OaklandIs the Jesus of the Bible the same as the Eucharist Jesus of Catholicism? Or is this a different Jesus?192 pages | Softbound Roman Catholicism Critique ISBN: 978-0-9791315-2-3Lighthouse Trails PublishingTable of ContentsSample ChapterDescription: Many Christians think that the Christian tradition of communion is the same as the Catholic tradition of the Eucharist. But this is not so. The Eucharist (i.e., Transubstantiation), is a Catholic term for communion when the bread and the wine actually become the very body and blood of Jesus Christ, thus when taken the partaker supposedly experiences the presence of God. These transformed elements are placed in what is called a monstrance and can then be worshipped as if worshipping God Himself. The implications are tied in with salvation. With the Eucharist, salvation becomes sacramental (participation in a ritual) as opposed to justification by faith in Christ alone. While this mystical experience called the Eucharist cannot be upheld through Scripture, there appears to be an increase of interest by evangelical Christians towards this practice.Author Bio: Roger Oakland is an author-lecturer and founder of Understand The Times International.

Born and raised in India, Caryl saw firsthand the effects that Hinduism
had on the people of that nation. After leaving India as a young adult,
she became involved in the counter-culture New Age movement, only to
find that the elements of Hinduism and the New Age were very much the
same. Later as a Christian, Caryl discovered that this same spirituality
had entered the Christian church through various avenues."When
I was twenty years old, my family returned from India, where I was born
and lived for most of my life, to England, our homeland. It was during
the turbulent sixties, and I was about to be introduced to a movement
that didn’t even have a name yet. How could I have possibly known then
that the strange and mystical religion I had been surrounded by in India
would someday be at the heart of a spirituality that would influence
millions around the world?"

Christian doctors and nurses are being forced to perform abortions, and a Christian baker has been threatened with prison for not baking a wedding cake for a homosexual couple. Christians in Colorado, New York, and Kentucky are being forced to go through “sensitivity training” in order to “rehabilitate” from their religious beliefs and resulting moral convictions. When Communists did such things to American soldiers, we called it brainwashing.American Christians are in the early stages of persecution, and it is increasing. Unfortunately, many will be blindsided by it because few pastors and church leaders are warning about it or preparing believers for it.The first part of How to Prepare for Hard Times and Persecutionis based on years of research into current events looked at from a biblical perspective. It discloses what is happening, how we got there, and where we are heading. The second part gives encouragement from Scripture and biblical principles for dealing with the challenges of the perilous times in which we live.As Christians, we cannot afford to compromise our faith. We need to believe and obey the inspired Word of God. We need to be prepared to respond to persecution biblically instead of reacting to it carnally.Table of Contents: Preface - Understanding the Times - Brainwashing Christians? - Thought Police in Colleges - Teaching Kids to be Sociopaths - A Biblical Warning for America - Heading Toward Dictatorship - Mainstreaming Occultism - Dealing with Shock - Fighting Fear - The Bottom Line - Building Faith - Learning to Trust God More - Don’t Give the Devil a Beachhead - Giving Thanks to God - Jesus Told Us to Forgive - The Importance of Integrity - Loving Difficult People - Overcoming Humanist Brainwashing - The Big Picture—Eternity! - Appendix A—Goddess Worship in America; Appendix B—Creation Versus Evolution; Appendix C—Creation in Scripture; Endnotes; Photo Credits; Index

But Nanci Des Gerlaise knows differently. Raised on a Metis settlement with fifteen brothers and sisters, Nanci's childhood and young adult life was riddled with terrors that come with being the daughter and granddaughter of medicine men. Muddy Waters tells the story of this Cree Native American woman, who after years of struggle, oppression, and spiritual darkness found light and truth in the One who offered her freedom.But Muddy Waters is not just a biography. It delves deeply into the framework of Native Spirituality. While Native American Christians are looking for a great spiritual awakening within the First Nations/Native American groups--by incorporating Native Spirituality practices into their Christianity--right under their noses, a massive worldwide deception is swiftly surging forward. Partly in overcompensation for very real injustices committed against Native Americans, Native Spirituality has become politically correct inasmuch as traditional biblical Christianity is on a fast track to becoming politically incorrect. Sadly, in the process, the Gospel, which is "the power of God unto salvation" (Romans 1:16) is being pushed aside, as if it were to blame--leaving countless numbers of people--both Native American and non-Native--without the sure hope that only comes through knowing Jesus Christ.
By Warren B. Smith168 pages, 2nd editionBiography/New AgeMountain Stream PressISBN: 978-0-9763492-1-1Description: Warren Smith was a spiritual seeker. That journey led him down a yellow-brick road of pied-piper spirits, landing him in a metaphysical New Age where the Christ proclaimed wasn’t the real Christ at all. Following signs and wonders, he jumped through spiritual hoops with almost flawless precision, until one day he realized that the light he was following was not light at all but rather darkness. Concerned that today’s church is being seduced by the same false teachings and the same false Christ that drew him into the New Age, Smith shares his story in a most compelling way.Author Bio: Warren Smith (B.A. University of Pennsylvania; M.S.W.

He has served as a program coordinator for people with special needs, directed several homeless programs, and has worked most recently as a Hospice social worker in New Orleans and on the California coast. He has written extensively on the subject of spiritual deception and has been widely interviewed on radio and television.

Do you tend to take flight—or instead, are you able to stand firm and “earnestly contend for the faith”? (Jude 3)With the keen eye of an experienced treasure hunter, the author helps readers probe and unearth the incredible wealth of guidance found in God’s Word. The resulting adventure will not only strengthen the faith of believers but equip them to live daily according to His revealed truth in an increasingly hostile world. “God says it and I believe it.” Issue settled, right? Or wrong? This common response may satisfy the faith of some who struggle with answering difficult questions—but such a reply does little to ward off assaults from skeptics, let alone “convince the gainsayers” by intelligently “giving a reason of the hope that is within you” (1 Peter:3:15). Sadly, most critics who wield tough questions with sarcasm do not expect an intelligent response; and tragically, many dismiss the truth when they do get one.
