Another comment from one of our readers

Another reader sent me a story of what happened at their church. Thanks for all the comments and sharing your experiences-Tim

Here is my short(?) story.
My BIL pastored a church up until a little while ago, when he decided that God was calling him to dump his church ,and his flock for the MegaShift/Wolfgang Simson/George Barna house church movement. And now they spend all their time traveling from conference to conference drinking up as much of this false teaching and experience they can stomache.
I don't know exactly what their beliefs were several years ago, but now they are charismatic, emerging, preterists who are drawn to contemplative practices. I tried and tried to warn my sister about the labyrinth they wanted to set up, and her reading a book by Leonard Sweet,etc. She has friends involved with Jesus People USA, but she wouldn't listen to my warnings about them either, or their ties to Christians for Biblical Equity. My BIL was actually quoted on his blog that some in his house church(of which he never attends any house church meeting- I guess he is above all that) were complaining that they don't get fed.His response was basically"feed yourselves!" Then he ended it with "so if someone is not getting fed, someone is doing something right!" I definitely confronted them both on this , and it ended with him signing off his last email with "your adversary". There is so much more I could tell you, but suffice it to say, we are miles apart, and I pray many times for their deliverance from this false system.
Thank you for the chance to vent.
