FRIENDS OF BETHEL CHURCH, HOME OF JESUS CULTURE
In Jesus Culture—Of Bethel Church—And Practicing Raising The Dead I also reminded you that Jesus Culture (JC) bills itself as not “just a band, but…a ministry of Bethel Church.”1
Why is this important? I’ll tell you; because we have some 60,000 college age youth people who’ve filled the Georgia Dome and now had JC lead them in worship at Louie Giglio’s annual Passion conference.2
Now, as I pointed out before, I’m not saying that by appearing at Passion 2013 Moore and Piper personally ascribe to all JC and BC is about spiritually. However, their appearance at Passion will have an effect.
There are many of these young people drawn in by the “worship” music of JC who will be under the impression that JC must be okay if Beth Moore and John Piper are at an event where JC leads worship.
So, this is why I’m drilling down on JC, and their spiritual train wreck of a church, where pastor Bill Johnson and his wife pastrix Brenda (Beni) hold court with e.g. BC Associate Pastor and “prophet” Kris Vallotton.
I’ve also clearly documented for you before that BC pastor Bill Johnson aligns himself, and the BC ministry JC, with a wild assortment of spiritual wingnuts like NAR “Apostle” Lou Engle and “respected prophet” Cindy Jacobs.
Consider the speaking lineup for JC’s The Jesus Culture Awakening 2011:
This is not guilt-by-association; this is guilt by endorsement, period. No way around it. It isn’t like I’m saying, for example, that supposed “apostle” Cindy Jacobs once rode by Bill Johnson’s house so they’re “connected.”
Jacobs regularly speaks at JC events. If your spiritual discernment is so far off that you can’t see this woman is absolutely a false prophet, and you think she’s speaking for God, you best question your own relationship to Jesus.
A TALE OF TWO KINGDOMS Kingdom Now or Kingdom Come?
by Sandy Simpson
There are two kingdoms being taught in many churches today. Teaching about one of the kingdoms is on the decline while the other is being promoted all over the place. I am warning Christians that they need to check out who is using the word "kingdom", the books they have been reading and recommend on building "the kingdom", the people they have been hanging out with at conferences, and what they mean by "the kingdom".
