Unbiblical Unity on the National Mall

“...a reset clears past errors and gets the system working...”

7-16-16 Washington Mall Event to “Reset Christianity”
Millions of evangelical leaders, authors, and entertainers will be gathering at the National Mall in Washington DC on July 16 in a concerted effort to ‘bring heaven down to earth’ in what has been called a national “revival”, “great awakening”, or secondary “Pentecost”. The Together 2016 event is closely aligned with the doctrines and personnel of the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) that teaches a strident form of Dominionism, a fact that will be documented in this article. The fervor is high with the backdrop of a hotly divisive election year, violent civil unrest, and looming calamities on all fronts. Organizers of this broadly-touted event say that they want to forge Christian unity in all of this, but in order to achieve it, we must lay aside biblical doctrine which, they say, brings further division. Regrettably, as the Scriptures clearly teach, the resulting spectacle will only lead participants away from Christ and into full-fledged apostasy. Below is what is being touted:

BE STILL AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT GOD!
—God is Not “in” Everyone and Everything

BeStillcover

Introduction
As long as I've known Warren B. Smith he has been keeping a list. Back in the early 1990s when I first became acquainted with him he began to tell me about his unique New Age testimony. His fascinating story is recounted in his book The Light That Was Dark: From the New Age to Amazing Grace. I was particularly interested in Smith's assertion that he had been taught a New Age interpretation of the well known Psalm 46:10 verse Be still that claims that we are god, not that God is God. This was news to me! I had never heard this teaching, not even in my own experience of dabbling in Transcendental Meditation and Hinduism during the Hippie movement of the 1970s. But had I gone deeper into eastern mysticism I surely would have been taught it eventually. I cannot imagine a more obvious heresy than teaching that we are God. 

After Warren experienced the salvation of Jesus Christ in his life, he began documenting the many times that this teaching reared its ugly head. I still recall the day that he phoned me with the agonizing discovery that this 'we are god' teaching was showing up in evangelical writings, specifically M. Scott Peck (cited below). By 2002 and 2003, I helped publish two books for Smith about his continuing findings. In Reinventing Jesus Christ: The New Gospel (Conscience Press, 2002), he wrote about the involvement of New Age leaders in American politics shortly after the events of 9/11 and their teachings about how 'we are god' (republished as False Christ Coming: Does Anybody Care?). Then he discovered that prominent evangelical pastor Rick Warren was teaching this same New Age concept. So Smith wrote a book titled Deceived On Purpose: The New Age Implications of the Purpose-Driven Church (Conscience Press, 2003, also republished). See a current listing of Smith books HERE.

Over the years Smith kept adding to his list. Recently he reminded me that his updated research collection on New Age we are god teachings had been published into a booklet. Below we have permission from the author and publisher to reproduce this booklet in its entirety on the Herescope blog. This booklet is also available for purchase HERE along with a collection of his other handy tract-like booklets HERE.

Be Still and Know That You are Not God

By Warren B. Smith

Our Spiritual Adversary would have everyone believe that we are all “one” because God is “in” everyone and everything. Using every promotional means possible—including a creative and ingenious perversion of quantum physics—he is attempting to convince the world and the church that while Jesus was Christ, so is everyone. And while Jesus was God, so is everyone else. To underscore this heretical New Age doctrine of God and Christ “in” everyone, he would have us further believe that nothing of any significance happened on the Cross of Calvary. However, the Bible makes it very clear that something extremely wonderful and overwhelmingly significant did happen on the Cross of Calvary. For it was on that Cross that Jesus Christ died to save the world as He defeated sin (1 John 2:2), death (2 Timothy 1:10), and the Devil himself (Hebrews 2:14). As the one and only Christ, He is our Rock (1 Corinthians 10:1-4), He is our Foundation (1 Corinthians 3:11), and in every sense of the word He is the Saviour of the world (1 John 4:14).
