What’s mysticism doing at a Christian leadership conference?

Catalyst Dallas - Centering prayer session

Remember when Pastor Rick Warren posted a tutorial on Centering Prayer on his Pastor’s Toolbox website, encouraging thousands of pastors to teach their congregants to go into the silence?  No? That’s probably because he yanked it down after biblically sound Christians sounded the alarm bells in his comments section. (Good thing there’s screen capture.)

Now thousands of young Christian leaders are getting a front-row seat to this mystical practice, at this year’s  Catalyst Leadership Conference in Dallas.

As someone who has attended Catalyst conferences and who knows full well that young leaders are taught the social justice, business growth model “gospels” there, I can tell you that you will not find much in the way of biblical discipleship tutorials or the sharing of the Gospel, nor will you find much about repentance and holiness unless it’s whispered in the hall. I know that’s tough talk, but I still get the huge posters, mailings, thick brochures and web videos for every Catalyst event known to man. So it doesn’t surprise me in the least to learn that contemplative prayer from the mystical eastern religions have made their way into the curriculum at Catalyst. Sola Sisters has the story. Please do take note of the excellent links about what these contemplative prayer practices are, who is teaching them and how they have made their way into our mainstream, very visible churches:

Centering Prayer Taught By Mystic Phileena Heuertz at Catalyst Dallas

Writer Jim Fletcher is reporting from the Catalyst Dallas conference that a Centering Prayer exercise was recently led by mystic and contemplative spiritualist Phileena Heuertz at Catalyst conference, which is a Christian conference that moves from city to city. The current Catalyst is being held April 30-May 2, 2014 in Dallas, TX.  Heuertz, who is the author ofPilgrimage of the Soul, was listed as a “lab speaker,” which means that her session was probably a breakout session in which not all of the conference attendees were participants. Some of the other Catalyst Dallas speakers include Tullian Tchividjian, Dave Ramsey, Louie Giglio, Mark Batterson, Jen Hatmaker, Craig Groeschel, and Francis Chan.(HT: Jules LaPierre, Jim Fletche

 

Why is it that all these false teachings seem to originate with the Roman Catholic Church? Because God already showed us in His Word that the Church of Rome is Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots. And now the whole world is being taken in by Satan’s deceptions through Babylon.

Please be warned. If you delve into this contemplative prayer and ‘spiritual formation’, it will not be God whom you will come into contact with, but Satan! And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities Revelation 18:4,5. Know more on spiritual formation it is very important that you know about this church leaders are adopting this teach and leading people the wrong direction do it for yourself God bless. http://www.ktfministry.org/en/news/2477/spiritual-formation-a-required-course-in-accredited-seminaries

 

The Other Woman

 Lesson #22
Every marriage must rely on trust – and likewise in our union with Christ, we must remain faithful to Him and His Word. Revelation speaks about the true bride of Christ, but there is another woman who is trying to seduce believers away from God’s Word. Revelation contains a shocking message about Babylon, the other woman. Babylon is fallen, and Christ’s people must escape her charms or perish! Thu…
