The very perilous times we are in -- Deadly violence at California Korean Christian college

Even Christian institutions appear not to be immune from the deadly impulses of our time.  The tragic news today is that some of the worst campus violence ever erupted at Oikos University, Oakland, California.  The suspect in the shooting of seven and killing of three is an allegedly disgruntled former nursing student at the school.

It is clear to this blogger that the school had a decidedly New Age cast to its allegedly orthodox theology:

The school's focus on Oriental medicine, including classes on acupuncture and herbal medicine, speaks to the Koreans' holistic outlook on life, blending Eastern approaches to health and medicine with Western religion, even mixing Christianity with Korea's shamanistic traditions, Park says.
It is equally clear to this observer that Matthew Fox and those of the ever growing Occupy Movement of that same region -- Oakland, California will be chortling over this as one more reason to shut down "fundamentalist" Christianity.

We were told that in the last days "perilous times would come" (2 Timothy 3:1).  It would appear that they are most clearly here.

May the Lord help us all especially as the restraints on the spirit of evil appear to be lessening daily.

I have the 2nd part of the "Bill Johnson: A New Age Christ?" article posted. The ubiquitous Bob Jones helped provide the interpretive key to not just Johnson, but the entire hyper-charismatic movement. It's New Age in Christian veneer. While that's not necessarily news to most of us, the important thing is that I do believe I've found and will expose the theological bases such that those who aren't as aware can see it.

Jones is teaching reincarnation! Apparently, this is the basis for the "spritual DNA" teachings rampant in both hyper-charismatic and "emergent" wings of Christendom.


There are a LOT of points covered here including the false parousia (second coming), a false separationist Christology (in part I: the Christ spirit descended upon the human Jesus of Nazareth), etc.

Jones even suggests if we "tap into the Wisdom of the Ages" we'll be able to have "authority" over our own DNA. He uses the words "spiritual guide", he stated that the "Lord" told him, "I'm coming in my people", and, he makes this explicitly New Age statement:

But, you’re getting ready to wake up for the night is far spent and the dawn is at hand. And we’re getting ready for one of the greatest awakenings of all time – no revival but a’ awakening that never ends

And, all this was spoken at Bill Johnson's Bethel Church in Redding, CA AND this is sold in audio/video format at Bethel.

Constance, I do think you'll find this of interest.
Condolences to our Texas friends and readers affected by the Dallas tornadoes.


Does Bill Johnson have any contact with Matthew Fox? There are definitely similarities!

Thanks, I very much appreciate your brilliant research and writing!


I'm not aware of Johnson having any direct connection to Matthew Fox. Unless, perhaps we're talking of a spiritual one...

While Fox is very open about his beliefs, Johnson, on the other hand, is trying to keep it under wraps. Just like Bailey/Master D.K. said, "preserving the outer appearance in order to reach the many who are accustomed to church usages". Johnson is one of those 'termites' as you call 'em.
In February 2012, I went to a Catch The Fire conference in VA Beach just to see what it would be like. I've been getting their info for years and decided it would be great to spend time worshipping the Lord for 4 days.

The 1st night Bill Johnson spoke. His words seemed harmless at first. He kept making references to things I didn't understand or know about - but I just shrugged it off. Then he made a comment - something to the effect that we were under a new gospel - the gospel of Heaven. I can't explain it any better then to say that instantly I felt odd about being there. My mind flashed the words "false gospel" and I knew it was time to get out.

So I canceled the remainder of my stay and headed home early. Now I see why after reading this post. I won't be going back to any more of their conferences.
