Dangerous Cult


In this DVD Eric Barger carefully documents the rise of the Cult of Liberalism within the walls of the Christian Church.


This message will shake those lost in deceptive "Churchianity" with the uncompromising truth that not all who claim to be Christians and not every church that professes to be a "house of worship" are preaching the authentic gospel that transforms man and leads to everlasting life!

 Divorced From Church?
 How Apostasy is Scattering the Sheep
 Today, many precious saints have been forced to leave their churches due to truly biblical or doctrinal disputes. If you have, you are NOT alone!
 With alarming numbers of once-trustworthy denominations and leaders trumpeting varieties of Liberalism and Emergent and other heresies, what is the dedicated Bible-believer to do? Should we stay or must we go? In this important message, Eric Barger utilizes biblical apologetics as he approaches the problem, offers solutions, and outlines reasons to both leave and stay in a congregation.

Remembering Ron Carlson 


This week we were shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of one of the most prolific Christian apologists of our day. Dr. Ron Carlson went home to be with the Lord on Thursday. Please pray for Ron's family. Together, we grieve with them yet celebrate his home-going.


Our mutual friend and co-apologist, Ed Decker, of Saints Alive (with whom Ron co-authored the great book "Fast Facts on False Teachings") wrote the following yesterday.



In Memorial

It is with the greatest sadness that I Report

the passing of Dr. Ron Carlson


Yesterday afternoon, June 16, 2011, Dr Ron Carlson, President of Christian Ministries International, world-renowned speaker and teacher on world religions and the cults, laid down for a quick nap and woke up in heaven.  His sudden passing shocked so many of his friends and family.  We want our heroes to live forever. I, at least, expected him to outlast me by many years.


Ron was a dear, close friend of over 30 years. We first met when he was 31 and ready to set the world on fire. He accomplished that with anointing, power, grace and humility.


Ron was one of those larger than life people, who electrified every audience with whom he shared his truths.  It never mattered what size group it was. He was the same in front of the smallest groups and the largest audiences.  They would sit on the edges of their seats and follow every word. He spoke with such love in his eyes and with the power of truth.


I had the honor of travelling with Ron, both here and abroad and saw first hand the tremendous zeal he had for the lost and his passion for educating and enabling pastors in places like the Philippines and even Cuba.  Ron regularly worked with YWAM to train up its missionaries, so that they had the tools to reach those lost in Cults and false religions.  To these causes, Ron made sure the book we co-authored, Fast facts on False Teachings was translated into other languages such as Spanish and distributed free at his many seminars.


The reason the book has been and continues to be such a great success is that it contains the warmth and heart of Ron Carlson.


On one of our trips to minister in the Philippines, we had something like 10,000 of the books printed and handed out to every attendee at our training conferences. His goal was always to train and equip every native pastor to stem the tide of the many Mormon missionaries and Jehovah Witnesses, wherever he went across the world.


I remember the time when we were ministering in Manila and we watched,  on Good Friday, the tens of thousands  parade down the streets in front of the Church of the Black Nazerene, carry a glass coffin with a black Jesus inside,  with flagellators walking along whipping themselves as they wailed out.


On Easter Sunday, the streets were deserted, but Ron and I were on the radio, being broadcast throughout the pacific rim, as we shared the real story of Christ's suffering, death and resurrection. I will always remember the joyous glow on his face as he told the real story of the real Easter to many  hundreds of thousands of listeners across the South Pacific and Asia.


Carol and I, along with our sons, Jason and Joshua,  send our deepest condolences and prayers to his wife, Marge, sons Jason and Jared and their families. 


Ron, you were always the best, only saw the best in everyone you ever met, you encouraged me when things were down and blessed me with your love, encouragement and friendship.. and as you always said... I'm all for you!  Man of God!   Ever faithful!
