"180" Movie

Please take the time to watch this documentary. It is a life changer for some. Ray Comfort does a wonderful job of remembering the Holocaust victims, comparing that to abortion, and as always sharing the gospel in a way that makes sense (Law followed by Grace). -Chris

Wretched: Charismatics Criticizing Charismatics

Yes, we love our charismatic brothers and sisters who are preaching the truth. This is more about the wackiness that -IS NOT BIBLICAL- going on inside the charismatic church that gives pause to those outside Christianity. And yes....there is enough wackiness going on inside the evangelical church that is equally as disturbing that has been addressed on this site as well. This documentary preview is done by a charismatic preacher. Beware....some of this is quite disturbing. -Chris

The Christian perspective on Harry Potter...sanctifying entertainment, or evil deception?

In light of the new Harry Potter movie, I want to again post something from Cross Road Ministries.  Again the debate of Harry Potter and Christians.  Is it safe and harmless entertainment, or is it another deception from the grand deceiver himself?

I'm speaking to Christians here.....ask yourself does God change?  Does his standard change with OUR popular culture?  Does he have a sliding scale based on time?  In other words, what was detestable to him two or three thousand years ago, okay with him now?  Think about this, and then measure it against scripture.

Now with that being said, do I think if you or your child has watched or read these movies/books that they can't be saved?  No, I'm not saying that.  However if you or your child has read every book, seen every movie, and can tell you more about Harry and his adventures than he can about our Lord Jesus Christ, then there is a serious problem, and I would be concerned and re-examine mine or my child's devotions.

Again, it's not just about Harry Potter,  Twilight, Bakugan, secular TV or music by themselves, but it's the diet of a little of each all week long will certainly override anything you or your child may have learned during 30 minutes in Sunday school and a 40 minute sermon.  And trust me, the message being sent from these sources are anything but sanctifying.  Please check out some of Crossroads other links, or some of our other articles for more.

A review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
 Part 2:  Harry's Last Battles
By Berit Kjos - July 18, 2011

 Index to all our


"I have been encouraged by my pastor at my CHRISTIAN church to read the Harry Potter books, because even though they have references to magic and sorcery, they can teach us more about the values of Friendship and Bravery than he can.... I am no longer Christian.  Somewhere along the way my beliefs changed. I practice Wicca." A young visitor to our website

"Days before the release of the seventh and final novel in the series, youth leaders are being told they could use the popularity of the Potter books and films as a 'launch pad' for exploring Christian themes."[1] Use Harry Potter to spread Christian message

"In its early years, 'Harry Potter' was a litmus test of orthodoxy for some conservative Christians, who expressed concern over its portrayal of witchcraft....The hysteria has largely died down, and not many religious leaders asked their flocks to avoid the final movie....Many Christians have cheered the portrayals of loyalty, courage and love."[2]
"[They] practiced witchcraft and soothsaying, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the Lord...." 2 Kings 17:17
I had plenty of company last Saturday morning as I hurried into the movie theater to see the final film in the Harry Potter series. Several families with children walked in ahead of me. Others followed. One little girl couldn't be more than three years old! How would she react to this scary movie?
For more than two hours, the audience sat immersed in a mystical world filled with frightening shrieks, explosive sounds of death and destruction, and enticing suggestions certain to appeal to power-hungry youth already attuned to the forces of evil.
If you are a parent, please don't take your children to see this movie!
By its end, it had exposed the two sides of today's popular evil. Like the yin-yang symbol, there is an obvious dark side and a more subtle "light" side to occult deceptions. To resist their mind-changing allure, we need to understand both. 
The Dark Side of Evil
This last part of the Harry Potter sequence promotes everything God bans in this warning:
"There shall not be found among you anyone who... practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one whocalls up the dead.... For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord..." Deuteronomy 18:10-12
During the last three centuries, Americans have enjoyed relative freedom from the occult forces that have tormented many other parts of the world. From the beginning, the pilgrims and a significant number of other believers trusted God and built this nation on the foundation of His Word. Therefore God protected their land. Few were exposed to words and actions that led to the occult.
But times have changed and God's actual truth is rarely heard in public places. We can no longer shut out the well-marketed forces of evil that press into our lives -- even in churches. That's all the more reason to prepare for thespiritual warfare ahead. Let's begin by taking a closer look at the occult practices listed in the above verses from Deuteronomy. Each practice is featured in this movie.
1. WITCHCRAFT: Trusting the occult spirit world for power to perform all kinds of magical spells and wonders.
Witchcraft was common in Old Testament days. Back then it was already a "normal" part of life in cultures around the world. Finally, in the wake of the Protestant Reformation, such practices faded in the West. More recently, that trend has been reversed. The mind-changing fantasies spread by Rowling and her admirers have sparked a rapid revival of interest and delight in occult empowerment. 
2. SOOTHSAYER: A fortuneteller, diviner or seer in communication with demonic spirits.
3. INTERPRETING OMENS:  Receiving messages and interpretations -- usually ominous - from the spirit world.
4. SORCERY: Performing magical feats through occult forces.
If witchcraft and sorcery sound like fantasy and fairy tales to teens and children today, the devil must be very pleased. He is constantly on the lookout for those who will follow his ways -- even if "just" in their imaginations. As God warned long ago,
"They...walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart...." Jeremiah 7:24
5. CONJURE SPELLS: Manipulating occult forces according to mental formulas and projecting the spell through a physical object.
"To cast a spell is to project energy through a symbol," explained Starhawk, the wiccan author of The Spiral Dance"Spells... require the combined faculties of relaxation, visualizationconcentration, and [mental]projection."[3]
Most spells in the movie were cast through magically empowered wands. The powerful Elder Wand apparently had a mind of its own and could choose whether or not to serve a new master. Wikipedia explains its bizarre history:
"In the preceding movie, Voldemort...opens Dumbledore's tomb and claims the wand as his own. Assuming incorrectly that Snape is the wand's current master, Voldemort slays Snape, not realizing that the wand's allegiance was to Draco....Harry had subsequently disarmed Draco and taken his wand. ...the Elder Wand's allegiance had since shifted to Harry....Voldemort uses the Elder Wand to cast his final Killing Curseagainst Harry's Expelliarmus charm. But since the wand's allegiance is to Harry, Voldemort's spell backfires and kills him once and for all."[4]
Spells were also essential to the creation and destruction of the horcruxes used by Voldemort to secure his own immortality. "Invented" by J.K Rowling, they only exist in the imaginations of those who are captivated by her tales and by the additional "information" they inspire. For example, Wikipedia adds this gruesome description:
"...the creation of a Horcrux requires one to commit a murder, which, as the supreme act of evil, 'rips the soul apart.' After the murder, a spell is cast to infuse part of the ripped soul into an object, which becomes the Horcrux....Both inanimate objects and living organisms have been used as Horcruxes, though the latter are considered riskier to use, since an organism can move and think for itself....
"To be destroyed, a Horcrux must suffer damage so severe that repair through magical means would be impossible....Once a Horcrux is irreparably damaged, the fragment of soul within it is destroyed."[5]
These dark fantasies share a common consequence with actual occult realities. Both stir cravings for new and ever darker occult thrills and knowledge. The natural consequences of pursuing such a path is spiritual bondage and torment. Listen again to God's warning:
"They would have none of my counsel and despised my every rebuke.
Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way,
And be filled to the full with their own fancies." (Proverbs 1:30-31)
6. CALL UP THE DEAD [Necromancy]:  Invoking the spirit of a deceased person through occult formulas.
Here the story gets more complicated. Harry himself was one of Voldemort's horcruxes, since a piece of Voldemort's soul was hidden inside him. Therefore Harry had to die before Voldemort could be killed. That realization made Harry's life bleak indeed. The months of hiding from Voldemort and his armies had taken their toll. Choosing to face his inevitable death rather than fight it, he walked unarmed into Voldemort's forest camp.
But first Harry wanted to see his dead parents and friends. His magical Resurrection Stone enabled him to call up the spirits of his father and mother as well as Remus Lupin and Sirius Black. They promised to stay with him until he died.
During his brief time in the state of "death," Harry was visited by the spirit of Albus Dumbledore who suggested that he return to life. Since "dying" had freed him from bondage to Voldemort's horcrux, he chose to return.
Many have equated Harry's death with the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They are way off track! Any such comparison is a mockery of God's actual Truth.
The "Light" Side of Evil
Surrounded by Hogwarts ash-covered ruins, Harry wins his final battle against Voldemort. Later, as he stands on a high ridge with his best friends, Ron and Hermione, he pulls out his Elder Wand, the most powerful wand known to wizards. He breaks it in two and throws the pieces into the canyon below. Apparently, there's no need for it anymore.
Did he really believe that all warfare ended when Voldemort died? Would peace now prevail in the region cleansed of its cruel leader? What about Voldemort's surviving army of ambitious, murderous "death eaters"? Might not some of them fight for his lofty, tyrannical position?
Harry doesn't answer those questions.
The movie concludes with a brief glimpse of the three friends nineteen years later. Ron, of course, married Hermione. Harry married Ron's sister Ginny. Now the two couples are standing with their children on the magical railroad Platform 9¾, ready to send their older children off to school on the Hogwarts Express.
When Harry's middle son admits his fear of being "sorted" into the Slytherin dorm rather than Gryffindor, his father comforts him: 

"Albus Severus, you were named for two headmasters of Hogwarts. One of them was a Slytherin [Severus Snape] and he was probably the bravest man I ever knew."
He was? The sour, sullen, ruthless Severus Snape was no friend to Harry during his school years. Nor was any other member of the Slytherin clan. Most of them were deadly enemies. Many joined the Death Eaters. In light of the previous Potter books, this sudden emphasis on peace, harmony and reconciliation makes no sense!
George Orwell would probably agree. His familiar book, 1984, sums up such strange contradictions with these words: "War is PEACEFreedom is SLAVERYIgnorance is STRENGTH."[6]
We might add this lie: Evil is Good!  In a world that despises God's Word and moral guidelines, it's not surprising that a series of books based on witchcraft and wizardry has won the hearts of the people. Occult themes, whether in books, movies or computer games, have become one of today's most effective tools for social transformation. Even churches are promoting the change. The "light" side of evil could hardly be more deceptive!
As God's Word tells us, "the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one." (1 John 5:19) That's reality today! But the consequences for those who believe his lies will be severe:
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness." Isaiah 5:20-21
God's Ultimate Victory
Today's rising world system has called for unbiblical peace and a prescribed form of solidarity that has little tolerance for Christians who refuse to compromise. Yet, if we stand firm in Jesus Christ, our sovereign Lord, He will surely meet all our needs -- and much more!  Those who resist the world's tempting lies in His name will be safe in Him -- now and forever!
This world system denies the message of the cross. That's why the name of Jesus is banned from all kinds of public places. But we cannot be silent! What Jesus prayed to His Father almost 2000 years ago is now His message for us:
“I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You shouldkeep them from the evil one.... As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world."  John 17:14-19

Are Christians to expose false teachers?


Is it biblical to call out those who teach contrary to God's word?  Check out this article from Equip.org.

Exposing False Doctrine: Heresy Hunting or Biblical Mandate?
CP0601
FALSE DOCTRINE- Introduction
Well, I’m sure you’ve all heard by now, that Christians are simply supposed to love one another and be united together in faith. Should we, therefore, regard as divisive those Christians who speak out against teachings in the church which are clearly unbiblical?

FALSE DOCTRINE- Heresy Hunting?
I can tell you firsthand that it is no joy to be labeled a “heresy-hunter.” Yet, as Paul instructed Timothy, we are to zealously guard the purity of the message God has entrusted to us, and for good reason (1 Tim 1:18-19;6:202 Tim. 4:2-5).

FALSE DOCTRINE- From Within as Well as Without
We read in such passages as Acts chapter 20, and 2 Peter chapter 2, that false teachers will arise, bringing with them destructive heresies, distorting the truth and destroying the faith of some. Moreover, it is clear that these teachers will come not only from outside the church, but also from within the body of Christ as well.

It is therefore imperative that we test all things by Scripture (1 Thes. 5:21). It was in this spirit that the Bereans examined the words of the Apostle Paul, for which they were reckoned as noble in character (Acts 17:11).

FALSE DOCTRINE- Correcting and Rebuking
Indeed, not only can the Bible be used for preaching, teaching and encouragement, but, it is equally valuable for correcting and rebuking (2 Tim. 4:2). As a matter of fact, we as Christians are held accountable for proclaiming the whole will of God, warning others of false teachings. (Acts 20:26-28; cf. Ezek. 33:7-934:1-10).

FALSE DOCTRINE- Church Discipline
This is not merely a suggestion, it is, in fact, a divine mandate. Of course if heresies are coming from teachers within the church, we ought to try and approach them first with our concerns. Should that fail to resolve the problem, we are told in Matthew 18 to expose their errors to the church; and if need be, divulge their names. (1 Tim. 1:202 Tim. 2:17-184:14-15;3 John 9-10).

FALSE DOCTRINE- Scriptural Mandate
We would, therefore, do well to heed Scripture’s explicit warnings to be on guard for false teachings (Rom. 16:17-18; cf. 1 Tim. 1:3-44:162 Tim. 1:13-14Titus 1:92:1), and to point them out to brothers and sisters in Christ (1 Tim. 4:6). At CRI, it is not our practice to make an issue out of peripheral matters on which honest Christians can differ. However, we are committed to exposing those who would compromise the essential doctrines of the historic Christian faith. Remember, controversy for the sake of controversy is sin. But controversy for the sake of the truth is a divine command.

Which Christ do you follow?

Do you follow the New Age Christ?  Oprah Winfrey's Christ?  Or do you follow Jesus Christ who died for those who have put their trust in Him for their salvation, and have repented of their sin?  One leads to destruction, the other leads to life eternal with our Creator and Savior.  Below is an article from Ray Yungen's book "For Many Shall Come in My Name".  I bought this book a few years ago, and it really opened my eyes to how much this false Christ is being pushed through many different avenues, including within our own evangelical churches.  Please take the time to read this excerpt, and get his book for greater detail.  Available here.

Beware: “For Many Shall Come in My Name”
By Ray Yungen
I believe the Bible contains an important signal that the changes of times and seasons may indeed be at hand. In Matthew 24:3-5, which is a chapter dealing with the tribulation period, Jesus spoke these revealing words to His disciples concerning the signs of His coming and the end of the world (age):
And as He sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign [indication] of thy coming, and of the end of the world [age]? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.” (emphasis mine)
In the past, I have heard two basic ways of interpreting verse 5—“for many shall come in my name, saying, ‘I am Christ;’ and shall deceive many.” The first interpretation is that there will be various ones claiming to be the returned Jesus Christ. The other view, which has gained greater acceptance in the last ten or fifteen years, is that a number of messiah figures would appear and gather followers to themselves in a fashion similar to Jim Jones or Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh. I now feel both of these interpretations may be incorrect. It is in light of some predominant New Age viewpoints that these verses take on major significance.
A basic tenet of New Age thinking is that of the Master Jesus. Adherents to this idea believe that during the unrecorded period of His life, Jesus traveled to various occult centers and Mystery Schools in such places as Tibet, India, Persia, and Egypt where He learned the metaphysical secrets of the ages. Thus, they claim He spent seventeen years of travel on a pilgrimage of higher consciousness. According to this theory Jesus of Nazareth became the Master Jesus, one who has gained mastery over the physical world by becoming one with his higher self.
You will recall that one of the terms that New Agers regularly use for the higher self is the Christ consciousness. To them, Christ is not a person, but a state-of-being. Excerpts from the following New Age sources explain it this way:
Jesus Christ educated His followers to discern the real man. He taught that there is a power in man that gives him authority over the things of the world. This principle is the higher self, the spiritual man, the Christ.1
The Christ Consciousness or Christ Principle represents the idea of a Saviour, but not, as taught in orthodox religions, a physical, material person. Jesus became the Saviour as He rose to the heights of His inner powers and became a True Son of God. . . . In other words, when Jesus, the man, was ready, the Christ Principle or Consciousness took over and predominated.2
After reading innumerable such statements in New Age material, I decided to take a closer look at Matthew 24:5. What I found astounded me. The Greek word for “many” in this verse is polus which means a very great or sore number, as in millions and millions. A term derived from this word is hoi polloi, which translates the masses. The Greek words for “shall come in my name” means they shall come claiming to represent what He represents by using His name or authority. Therefore, Matthew 24:5 is saying that a very great number of people shall come claiming to represent what He represents, but are in fact, deceiving people. In light of come in my name, consider the following remarks taken from a variety of New Age sources:
Jesus was an historical person, a human being; Christ, the Christos. is an eternal transpersonal condition of being. Jesus did not say that this higher state of consciousness realized in him was his alone for all time. Nor did he call us to worship him. Rather, he called us to follow him, to follow in his steps, to learn from him, from his example.3
Jesus was one soul who reached the state of Christ consciousness, there have been many others. He symbolized the blueprint we must follow…. The way is open to everyone to become a Christ by achieving the Christ Consciousness through walking the same path He walked.. . . He simply and beautifully demonstrated the pattern.4
The significance of incarnation and resurrection is not that Jesus was a human like us but rather that we are gods like him—or at least have the potential to be. The significance of Jesus is not as a vehicle of salvation but as a model of perfection.5
Jesus was aware of himself as a finished specimen of the new humanity which is to come—the new humanity which is to inherit the earth, establish the Kingdom, usher in the New Age.6
This view, then, is that Jesus is a model of what the New Age or Aquarian person is to become. I would say these statements can be called coming in His name or claiming to represent what He represents.
Now let us look at the second part of verse 5 in Matthew 24, “saying I am Christ.” Again, we find a multitude of statements such as the following:
Every man is an individual Christ; this is the teaching for the New Age. The experiences of contacting the Christ Self and the subsequent vibrational lifting are not to be reserved for a favored few. Every person in the world, sooner or later, will receive this lifting action. No one will be left out or left behind. Everyone will receive the benefit of this step in human evolution.”  (emphasis mine)7
Could it be that many Christians have been looking for “the Christ” in all the wrong places? Could it be that when Jesus said “no man knoweth the hour” of his return, it was because the return of the Christ comes now, within us, and is beyond space and time? Jesus may have been hinting at this when he told us the kingdom of God is within you—not in some time, nor in some place, but within. When we look within, through meditation and the expansion of consciousness, we move beyond time, and meet face-to-face with the Christ.8
The Christ is You. You are the one who is to come—each of you. Each and every one of you!9
Christhood is not something to come at a point in the future when you are more evolved. Christhood is—right now! I am the Christ of God. You are the Christ of God.10
Even more specific evidence ties the New Age into Jesus’ prophecy. In Luke 21:7-8, we find the same discourse as in Matthew 24:3-5. Again, note the warning:
And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in My name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near; go ye not therefore after them. (Luke 21:7-8)

Notice “Christ” is italicized in verse 8, meaning that it was not in the original manuscript. The translators of the King James Bible probably thought it awkward that it said, “Many shall come saying, I am.” Probably for the sake of clarity and to be consistent with Matthew 24, the translators added the word “Christ.” It is very interesting that New Agers refer to themselves (or their higher selves) as the “I AM,” (one of the names of God). Note the following:
The first experience of unification with the Christ consciousness may come with the initial crossing of the psychic barrier and contact with the Christ Self or I AM Self.11
This Inner Self is called by many names such as: God-self, Higher-self, Christ Consciousness, I-AM, Buddah Nature, and many others.12
This I AM is God . . . this I AM is You.. . . Universe and Individual Consciousness.. . . God knowing Itself as God, God knowing Itself as You, and You knowing Yourself as God.13
So what Jesus may have been saying is many shall be saying “I AM.”
Because of these statements, I firmly believe what Jesus Christ was prophesying in Matthew and Luke was the current New Age movement when it reaches its full fruition world-wide. He clearly stated that just before His physical return a huge number of people will proclaim their own personal divinity and that “many” (polus) will deceive—not some, but “many.” There was a good reason for Him to preface these prophesies with the warning, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” These people will be offering a spiritual message that will look, feel, and sound like it is of Jesus Christ but is not.
(from For Many Shall Come in My Name by Ray Yungen, pp. 151-156).



Yoga in the church is a result of what happens when the church embraces these false ideas about who Jesus really is.  Below is a link to Lighthouse Trails and a list of helpful items and articles related to Yoga.


More than ever, Yoga has entered the Christian church. Lighthouse Trails receives reports nearly daily of Christians who are practicing Yoga and churches that are allowing Yoga to be practiced at their churches. Yoga is the heartbeat of Hinduism, a belief system that completely contradicts biblical Christianity and puts practitioners in harm’s way. Yoga is a gateway into eastern mysticism. If you have loved ones who are getting into Yoga, please warn them of its dangers.
