A time of departing


When you church starts to use terms like "Let our Host and Hostess's serve you" or let our directors pray for you beware.
I would encourage you to start asking some questions about these seemingly harmless terms.
Host and Hostess's is of course the process of making the church more like a business (rather than a biblical based meeting)
The goal being to make unbelievers feel more comfortable in the pews. (I'll save that one for another rant) .
If your band is playing Christian songs and unbelievers are not squirming in their seats you can be sure your worship music is not honoring a Holy God.
But watch out for the term directors.
Willow Creek is really big on spiritual directors.
I was raised Catholic so I recognize the term because thats where the practice originated from.
There are many different terms that most Christians are unfamiliar with.
Emergent church, spiritual directors etc..
Spiritual formation is another term for contemplative spirituality which simply is New Age.
And this movement is sweeping the church.

I would highly recommend to every Christian that in addition to reading their Bibles to also purchase a book I have endorsed before titled "A Time of Departing".
The second edition is out with a ton of added information.
I just purchased the book myself and it has a lot of new and current information thats in affecting your church today.
Go to this link to purchase the book.

This information will help you and your friends and family.
Ray is a great writer and will explain this new movement better than I could ever do.
