Is Your Church New Age, Emergent, or Christian?

This comparison of New Age and Emergent beliefs against the backdrop of biblical Christianity will not only expose the many likenesses shared by New Age and Emergent philosophies but it will also help equip viewers with discernment in understanding and recognizing real, authentic Christianity.

Just a quick update and some information for you.

First, thank you so much for the dozens of emails, phone calls, and texts concerning my email requesting prayer for our family sent earlier this week. You will never know how much we've been blessed and touched by your thoughts and prayers. "Thanks" cannot adequately say how much we appreciate you.

As of tonight, Melanie's mother, Berneice, is continuing to slip ever closer to Heaven. We continue to trust the Father on her behalf and are asking for wisdom concerning ministering to our family, many of whom do not know the Lord Jesus at this time. I ask that you pray especially for Melanie's dad, Dale, and for all of us to experience a real heaven-sent peace in the midst of this difficult time. (See "Important Prayer Need")

Today, I hosted for Jan Markell on "Understanding the Times" Radio. It was a terrific program. My guest was Bill Muehlenberg from "Culture Watch" in Melbourne, Australia, who joined me in discussing the continually disturbing topic of "Chrislam." Bill made some terrific points that you need to hear. During both the interview segment with Bill Muehlenberg and the clips I played from my live teaching "The Deception of Chrislam," the program content stressed the need to operate with understanding and not simply emotions and to test everything against the Bible. We also shared some thoughts concerning the fact that in falling for Chrislam, many of our allegedly evangelical Christian leaders are walking into what amounts to be nothing less than a Satanic trap. I ended the program on a really positive note by recounting a surprise-filled event that will remind each listener to always be ready to be a witness for the Lord. I hope you'll take time and listen to this broadcast.

You can listen online or download the MP3 audio file of the "Understanding the Times" program here.
If I may say so, today's "Take A Stand! Radio" broadcast was really good too. One of the best thus far. In today's program I began exposing the five core beliefs of the New Age Movement, during which I felt led to tell the story of how my Mom came to know Jesus and was herself set free of New Age ideology.

Listen to all "Take A Stand! Radio" programming here. 
God bless you and thanks for standing with us. Your gifts of support and your orders for ministry products are absolutely critical as we come through December and into January.

I'll be in touch here via email in the coming days -  unless we hear a trumpet blast above!

Just in case you didn't see Eric's recent article on Chrislam, here it is.

By Eric Barger


Chrislam, which purports to join Islam and Christianity into one harmonious, synthesized religion, is fast becoming a rallying point in some American church circles. Under the leadership of something called "Faith Shared," two organizations, Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First, spearheaded an event loosely called "Chrislam Sunday" on June 26, 2011. It was celebrated by dozens of churches nationwide as joint Christian-Muslim services were held in various Methodist, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Church of Christ, Unitarian Universalist, Catholic, Lutheran, Congregational, Baptist and other denominations and groups.


Make note that we know of no mosques used for a Chrislam service. The fact is that no imam is about to bring a Bible into a mosque and suggest that our God is their god. For the Muslim cleric, the only acceptable agreement that both religions are somehow equals is if doing so presents the perceived image of a kinder, gentler, politically correct Islam and if doing so furthers the cause of Islam. It isn't peculiar that Muslim leaders would endorse Chrislam Sunday, claim that both religions are on equal footing, or partake in the charade of dialog indulged in by the Yale Divinity School and assorted foolish Christians over the past four years. The Muslim practice of deception of the infidel (that's everyone outside of Islam) knows no boundaries. This is called "Kitman" and "Taqiyya." Kitman, or half truths meant to mislead an infidel, and Taqiyya, which is complete deception of unbelievers, are acceptable tactics - as long as Islam is the winner in the end.

For an in-depth look at Chrislam and to understand the failure of many Church leaders to see the peril it represents, request Eric Barger's new DVD "The Deception of Chrislam" recorded at Jan Markell's "Understanding The Times" Conference this October.
