EXPOSING THE TAXONOMY OF SMALL GROUPS
(I too was deceived for many many years even without the ~small groups~ - please see "Star Trek - Voyager"- near bottom of page)
Hiding the Gospel to them that are lost - beware beloved!
Training Students to Rethink God's Word - Blinding the purpose.
The Holy Spirit moved The Apostle Paul to write:
2 Cor 4:3-7
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
"The Bible has rightly been called the greatest story ever told, about the greatest person who has ever lived, who is making to men and women the greatest offer that has ever been made. So if the message is so great, why is it that many do not accept it? One reason is simply because people do not know what that message is. Leaving aside the Bible statement that the devil "has blinded the minds of unbelievers" (2 Corinthians 4:4), maybe it is simply that they have received faulty or unbalanced information. Or maybe the character and behaviour of some who claim to be Christians has turned them off. Consequently their understanding of what it is all about is distorted." <----------Beloved beware of this flood of water from Satan's mouth. "Those" (collectively - in the small groups) can surely come up with some clever and earthly wise reasons why others don't believe if "we" do leave aside GOD'S WORD, which in tells end up accusing Believers. That is a demonic spirit of accusation. In other words it's the demons who are telling them this, not GOD'S WORD, this is the blinding effect Satan does to the lost. The collective (in the small groups) will stand accusing and in truth it is Satan blinding the lost. But God's People who tremble at His Word and Fear Him will speak GOD'S WORD in love and will not hold back.
Modern Witchcraft holds to this:
“To grant a traditional text such authority would be to say that this is it, the truth for all time. But we are a nature religion, and a fundamental truth of nature is that everything changes.” Frew, “Pagans in Interfaith Dialogue.”
God's Word says:
Prov 24:21 My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: KJV
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
STAR TREK - VOYAGER - working the same Dialectic Philosophy Process (small groups)
Star Trek Voyager - The Best "One-Liners" Ever! (It all focuses on the sensual - the feelings)
Beloved, notice one thing which is said here in this Star Trek Voyager video:
The head Scientist says to Ver: "Well, Ver, what can you observe about their social structure?" (Then Ver say's) - "It's obviously hierarchical with clear differences with status and rank.The males appear to be subordinate to that female. Perhaps a Matriarchy" Then the head Scientist says, "My Conclusion exactly."
Alternate Ending to Star Trek Voyager Final Scene...
Captain Janeway say's: "We're alone, in an uncharted parts of the galaxy.We're already made some friend here and some enemies. We have no idea of the dangers we face. But one thing is clear, both crews are going to have to work together if we're to survive. That's why Command Chakotay and I have agreed that this should be One Crew - A Star Feet Crew.... There's another entity out there who has the ability to get us there (home) a lot faster. We'll be looking for her. And we'll be looking for worm-holes, spatial rifts, or new technologies to help us. Somewhere, along this journey we'll find a way back. Set a Course - for Home!"
This program (Voyager) is very much Sci-Fi of finding their way back into the Garden (home) without God in Christ but by their own female-entity along with their own abilities and knowledge.
Beloved, this is how I too was deceived - I gave my time and trust to ~a small group~ but I never had to participate in a ~small group~ at church and still the spin (deception) was done on me and I allowed it. In other words, I was already being deceived right from my own television with one of my most favorite TV programs: Star Trek Voyager. I'll explain.
Star Trek Voyager is a 1 hour program, (and that is what it was doing to me - programming me), they play it in the Dallas Texas area Mon-Fri each day at least 3 hours a day a different program in a row - program after program for at least 3 hours Monday through Friday! It is set up to re-program minds.
I soon found myself into relationship with the cast members even though I knew the godless doctrine was not right. But I even told Ron (my husband), before God opened my eyes and spirit to this stuff, months even before He led me to hear Dean Gotcher, that I watched this because I loved and enjoyed the personalities of the cast members (the actors) on the program. Ron liked the program also. The cast members are - Ensign Harry Kim, Seven of Nine (who some are trying to teach all over again how to be a "Human being"), then there is Captain Janeway (the women leader of the group - The Facilitator - with her wonderful caring hear for her crew, they make her about being ~the way~), then there is Lt. Tuvok, B'Ellanna, Chakotay and all the other main Characters on the program. I had liked and enjoyed all of their personalities and characters so I kept watching it believing that it was ok (that I was safe to be a part of this) because I believed I could easily by-pass the doctrine of what it was teaching to only get into relationship with the cast members and that was the deceiption which got me hooked into the Dialectic Process: RELATIONSHIP!
And that (getting into Relationship - *savor the things that be of men) was EXACTLY the Demonic Scheme - the deception of this doctrine.
*Savor: GK-phroneo (root word: phren probably from an absolute phrao - to rein in, curb, the feelings, of sympathy or the sensitive nature, the mind or cognitive faculties) Also means, phrasso - to fence, or inclose - specifically to block up - figuratively to silence.
But now months later after doing my own research on the show (looking at it through the Lord's Eyes) this show is practicing exactly the United Nations ~One World Order~ process, (The dialectic Process - it is merely a systems theory NOT BASED on God's Written Word (Genesis through Revelation) which IS TRUTH), to bring about what they coined World Peace - their peace and safety (their safe place).
1 Thess 5:1-6
5:1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
The recent movie: Hancock works the Dialectic Process also.
