SRN June 2014 Update and Newsletter – Chris Lawson

With the growing trend of many Christians, professing Christians, and even non-Christians involving themselves in Christianized New Age literature (God Calling, Jesus Calling, Have Heart, The Jesus Letters, etc.) and mystical occult-oriented practices (centering prayer, breath prayers, Christian mantras, Christian yoga, Christian séances, passive listening prayer-journaling, etc.) I thought it might be helpful to write more on how these types of things can be an open Gateway to Ghosts, Hauntings and Apparitions. It is not just undiscerning adults that are engaging in such things, undiscerning youth are too. Effectively targeted by Emerging Church and New Spirituality leaders, many people are falling prey to such things.

I do recommend reading PART 1 (April 2014 SRN Newsletter) of this series first, to gain a clear understanding of God’s loving care toward us, and the serious consequences of involving oneself and one’s family in occult practices, even when they are made to look “Christian.”

Lastly, I am happy to say that we have rounded the corner after six long months of behind the scenes footwork. A small note about this is available on page 2 of the June newsletter.

Steak and a Bible

I want to share the podcast I listened to this morning on my drive to work. Mike LeMay of Stand Up for the Truth interviewed Pastor Randy White of the First Baptist Church of Katy, Texas, about the direction of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Proverbs 31 destroys preconceived “Biblical Womanhood”

J.W. Wartick -"Always Have a Reason"

There are some who advocate a notion of “Biblical Manhood and Womanhood” with strict definitions of what roles men and women should occupy. Representative is John Piper, a leading voice in the movement named “Recovering Biblical Manhood and Womanhood.” In his essay “A Vision of Biblical Complementarity: Manhood and Womanhood Defined According to the Bible,” Piper writes about “biblical” manhood:

When my father came home he was clearly the head of the house… (32, cited below)

[W]hen there is no bread on the table, it is the man who should feel the main pressure to do something to get it there… a man will feel his personhood compromised if he… becomes dependent over the long haul… on his wife’s income. (42)

Shockingly, Piper even goes so far as to say that:

If we are going to reconcile God’s love with people condemned by God we have to begin with why people are condemned in the first place: Sin.  Sin is any violation of God’s laws.  Since…
