Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Ron Luce of BattleCry: Supporting Ministry of Word of Faith Jezebel Heretics Marilyn And Sarah Hickey!

Posted by Job on May 28, 2008

I used to love watching Ron Luce’s events such as “Acquire The Fire” and “BattleCry” on Christian broadcasting and generally supported their efforts: see New York Times Portrays Teenage Christians As Hatemongers. Then, I found out that Luce was among those endorsing syncretized Christianity via New Age contemplative spirituality: BattleCry’s Ron Luce Gets In On The Contemplative Prayer Scam. So, here we had another example of Christians taking what is supposed to be a bold – even coercive and militaristic – stand in secular areas like politics and culture while compromising attacks on the faith itself. For example: not long ago one of Luce’s TV shows celebrated their victory over a chain of mall gift shops selling pornographic Christmas tree ornaments. You might be interested in knowing how this victory took place. Was it converting the owner of the gift shop chain into Christianity? No. Was it converting so many customers of this gift shop chain into Christianity that selling such things would be commercially viable? No. Instead, they employed the same tactics that atheists, gay rights groups, pro – abortion people, and New Age (there’s that world again!) environmentalist Gaia mother earth worshipers use: protests, picket signs, media pressure, etc. In other words, it as Christians imposing their social, political, and cultural beliefs – not the gospel mind you but only secular beliefs! – on people that reject Jesus Christ knowing full well that a person can have those beliefs, not have Jesus Christ, and still burn for an eternity in the lake of fire. And it was not even any sort of conviction or shame over sin and blasphemy that forced this fellow to change. Instead, they used GREED as an inducement. This fellow did not stop selling pornographic Christmas tree ornaments because the Ron Luce kids caused him fear the God of Heaven. Instead, the Ron Luce kids manipulated his fear of the god of THIS WORLD to force him to change his behavior. These “Christians” used MAMMON, more specifically the fear of losing money and power, to get this fellow to do what they wanted him to do! Seriously, how different is that from witchcraft, the occult, black magic, white magic, roots, or voodoo? Well, if you give up Jesus Christ’s spiritual mission for earthly gains and glory, such a thing is inevitably going to happen, because if you obey Jesus Christ, you can reach the world in a spiritual manner by the Holy Spirit. But if you go off and do things that Jesus Christ never told you to do, you reach the world through its flesh by the flesh. 

So, it is no surprise that so many of these religious right “taking back the culture” dominionists have gotten quite comfortable with incorporating so many worldly techniques, even things from other religions, into not only their political practice but religious doctrines and practices. Using slain in the spirit false charismatic techniques so that you can do a better job of brainwashing and manipulating young children than does the anti – Christ public schools? Why not? It is beating the enemy at his own game right? See: Jesus Camp: Bewitching Our Children With False Doctrines!

The question is similar to Roman Catholicism centuries ago, why are the Pentecostal and charismatic evangelical movements so conducive to getting people to believe that A) it is our job to establish the kingdom of heaven on earth rather than to preach the gospel and obey the Bible and let God do what God has already said He would and B) to accomplish A) using secular methods? Just The Book has an excellent series on how these people are targeting our kids in this fashion, here is merely one of their many entries, and yes Just The Book (a sola scriptura title!) does invest a lot of time in investigating the links between Roman Catholic mysticism and not only charismatic mania, but how charismatic mania influences POLITICS. I am not one of those who claims that the Roman Catholic Church is mystery Babylon the great, the beast, etc. but their fingerprints are all over this movement. 

So here is the link of Ron Luce endorsing the false ministry of the Hickeys. I don’t know how long the link is going to last, so here goes the text:

In a world that seems to be turning upside down, God wants YOU to be a world – changer!“After a radical encounter with God, Sarah Bowling began to sense the need to revolutionize her World… from the inside out. “That’s where the true revolution begins,” says Sarah.

Regardless of how old or young you are, or where you live on the planet, God wants you to be concerned, confronted, compelled, corrupted, and consumed by the cause of Christ. He sees the potential in each of us to become a revolutionary.

How to Keep Your Faith in an Upside-down World can be a beginning for you; a beginning of radical relationship with God, of tremendous transformation in your own life, and a real revolution of God’s love, power and Word in your world and the world around you!” Sarah’s book will encourage you to not just be a surviving Christian, but a thriving Christian. Sarah’s message will help you excel and move forward in your Christian walk—despite living in an upside down world.

-Ron Luce, Founder of Teen Mania

So … God wants you to be corrupted by the cause of Jesus Christ? That must be the Word of Faith/prosperity doctrine translation. You know, the one that teaches that Jesus Christ had to be born again (either in hell or at his baptism), that He was raped, and other blasphemies. God wants us to be a revolutionary? In the form of dying to self, not being conformed to the world and its ways but being transformed by God’s Word, etc. But since Luce did not provide that context for us – and since he promotes WORLDLY and UNBIBLICAL ministers like the Hickeys and practices like contemplative spirituality – I cannot presume him to mean “revolutionary” in a biblical context (especially since the world itself never appears in the Bible … at least not in my translation … again maybe it appears in the Word of Faith/prosperity ones), but rather in a worldly one. And again, since Luce’s “ministry” is fond of using militaristic images – complete with teens wearing combat fatigues and having vehicles i.e. jeeps painted with camouflage designs on stage, and yes since he encourages these children to be active in the secular arena – what prevents me from deciding that Luce means “revolutionary” in the Che Guevara, Simon Bolivar, Joan of Arc sense? Or the aforementioned children’s crusade

People, Satan Is Real And After Your Kids, and among the places very where Satan is like a lion, roaring, looking for and stalking whom he may devour as it reads 1 Peter 5:8 is in these false churches and false Christian movements. This is why we need to flee false teachers and reject their doctrines people, and only seek after the Word of God and those who teach it. There is no need, no reason to compromise or make excuses, because the consequences are too severe. Marilyn and Sarah Hickey and Ron Luce: as Amos 3: 3 says, how can they walk together unless they be agreed?

    Yikes, Ron Luce is among the false teachers out there? That’s quite the bummer. Sure he is on the Board of Trustees at Oral Roberts University and he is on TBN(not all shows/ppl on TBN are false), but I thought he would turn out to be not like these Word of Faith charlatans. Guess it has shown be the reality of the fact that Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

  2. Dan said

    Luce looks like he wants to be worshipped. He is cult-like in his methods.

  3. Kate said

    So do you believe in the Bible? When the enemies of the people of God came against them, they didn’t fight them? Often times they fought them using the same methods their enemies would have. If anything they were sometimes downright brutal. So are you saying the Bible isn’t true?

  4. Tonya said

    WOW… Don’t it say in the bible not to judge… How dare all of you judge TBN or Ron Luce. You are crazy… It is going to come back on you and you are going to pay. God is a good God. He never fails. You worry about you and not others that is doing something good for this world. Helping teens to open there eyes and see how and what god does man that is a good thing.. You worry about your self and getting to heaven then to sit here and critize among others.

    Its funny but i had no probs with most of those on tbn or ron luce etc …. In fact i had no prob with women teachers , UNTIL ….. I read my bible and found that not only is what they say non biblical esp during praisathon but those who shout loudest in support tend to be women and both ladies who posted comments need to read the word i think about this …. If they are false teachers then those who follow will perish . why dont you think about the lost instead of ur friendly wolf .

    i don’t think it’s in any way your call to say whether or not protesting outside of a store is an unGodly thing.

    I agree, signs themselves are not evil. There are definitely more factors involved, so to call that ungodly is more a matter of personal opinion, not something God condemns.

    Job
    As far as fatigues goes, chances are these believers will weary themselves out and get back to the gospel, but there are worse extremes in Christian history such as putting people publicly in stocks who didnt worship on Sunday, the condemning, killing and banishing of people from their homes by reformed believers. We are in need of balance for sure.

    Dave
    have you ever wondered why generations havent gone to hell in a handbasket? Faithful women and men laboring in God’s work has for sure made a difference in whether a family, city or nation has been blessed. Now in your study, did you notice all the gullible men leading families and nations into ruin? We wont discuss the fact that women prophets actually ‘taught’ and men were revived and empowered (todays false teachers claim the male is the weaker sex and you’d be emasculated by Deborah). The truth is, the mere listening to a woman in any place endangers you of being taught. So your children are not safe and are in grave danger of being beguiled by this gullible woman. For sure, you wouldnt trust such a creature to operate on your loved ones, teach in our universities, or lead nations! Please please right away, hire a trusted non-gullible leader to raise your children… a man. Poor Timothy, being taught by not 1, but 2 women, he’s ruined for sure.

    most of the followers of Jim Jones were black, so Im sure you wouldnt infer that all followers and supporters of cult leaders are gullible black people.

  9. Diane said

    Im sorry I meant you wouldnt “imply” instead of “infer”.

  10. prouton said

    Are the bolded parts in Ron’s quote about revolution what you don’t agree with?

  11. Carlos B said

    Question? Are you an encourager or an accuser? How about demonstrating specific teachings? Showing what the Bible says about faith and belief, and what it doesn’t say. Your throwing big rocks with sanctimonious rants accomplish nothing but division.
