Christian, do you wonder what God’s purpose is for this Life, in between his Resurrection and His final Restoration?
In many ways, the Ezra Institute is the premier Reformed think tank in its commitment to understanding and teaching all of life, every aspect and vocation, from the lens of Scripture.
I am excited to help announce one of the first of these 4-day events to take place in the US. Please consider traveling to Crosby/Deerwood, Minnesota this May. Come, fellowship, and learn from some of these Christian thinkers on the Christian view of life and the cosmos.
Information for this event is at the web address on the flier.
Additionally, we will host a one-day Free Conference with Dr. Joe Boot and Andrew Sandlin prior to the event on Saturday, May 20 at Lifespring Church. Please make plans to join us (and bring young people). the sign-ups will be coming soon.
Lifespring Church, in Crosby MN, has invited Bible Teacher and Evangelist Justin Peters for a weekend of teaching on crucial Christian topics facing the church today. Justin Peters will present his well-received seminar “clouds without water,” and through this will not only break down false ideas assaulting the church today, but by opening God’s word, will build up the Christian with how to have assurance, how to hear God’s voice, and other topics Christians struggle with.
The following is taken from Justin Peter’s website:
“My seminar, Clouds Without Water, is taken from a reference in the book of Jude 12 to false teachers. Specifically, Clouds Without Water is a biblical critique of the Word-Faith/New Apostolic Reformation/Prosperity gospel. The prosperity gospel essentially holds that it is always God’s will for a Christian to be wealthy and always God’s will for a Christian to be physically healed. If we struggle financially or get sick, then prosperity and physical healing are guaranteed provided that we have enough faith or sow a seed (give money) to a preacher in order to reap a harvest.
Prosperity theology dominates what we see on “Christian” television such as TBN, Daystar, The Word Network and others. Word-Faith/NAR theology, however, is not just an emphasis on health and wealth. It is actually rooted in the metaphysical cults and has a very heretical view of God, Christ, the Atonement, and it deifies man. Clouds Without Water incorporates dozens of video clips of prominent prosperity preachers such as Benny Hinn, Joseph Prince, Creflo Dollar, Bill Johnson, Andrew Wommack, Joyce Meyer, Todd White and Joel Osteen, and so you will see for yourself what they actually teach. The error is then corrected point by point from scripture.
This movement, tragically, is the face of Christianity around the world and it is leading untold millions of people into a different gospel – and a different gospel does not save. It is not only my desire to expose the error but also to equip the saints to “speak the truth in love” (Ephesians 4:15) with the aim of rescuing people out of this dangerous deception.”
