Eyewitness Reports on the Wild Goose Festival and "MULTIPLE BELONGING"

From the Wild Goose Festival.

Video Warning, this man is selling total universalism and one world religion lies. I have posted it as one example of what the people there were taught. "You need Buddha" is one of his comments. This one took me back to UU church where they do the confusion of Satan stuff...THE "WORDS ARE NOT NECESSARY" LIE

"MULTIPLE BELONGING" is a new Emergent church term from what I can gather. It means belonging to multiple religions or churches at once. As I have said Mystery Babylon OVERLAPS. Unitarian Universalists played mix and blend religions too, I knew Wiccans who went to Mass, and Quakers who went to Buddhist temple.

The World Council of Churches describes "multiple belonging" here:

Diverse spiritual traditions co-exist in the world and sometimes even within a single individual. This growing phenomenon calls the Christian faith into question. This was the subject of the second European Pastoral "Assises" which were held at Chant d’Oiseau (Brussels) at the initiative of ""Voies de l’Orient"".
At the crossroad of European culture, of the Christian faith and the spiritual traditions from Asia (Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism ...), the options are increasingly open, individual, and unpredictable. It is not rare that the same person, in the course of his life, attaches himself to several philosophical and religious traditions. There is a new and growing phenomenon which is developing before our eyes: an increasing number of our contemporaries refuse to choose one tradition while excluding another: to be (for example) Christian or Hindu.

From Apprising Ministries:


Next we’re informed WGF was indeed as spiritually whacked as Greenbelt:

Instead of Bible studies, there were labyrinth walks. Instead of praise-and-worship music, there was hymn-singing in a beer garden and a bluegrass liturgy presided over by a tattooed female Lutheran minister. (Online source)

Lecture topics ranged from sex trafficking and social justice to authority in the church and interfaith relations. Visitors could learn from Tom Prasada-Rao, a singer, how to chant “Om” and “Hallelujah Hare Krishna”, or hear Paul Fromberg, a pastor from San Francisco, talking about his 2005 wedding to another man.

“God is changing the church through the bodies of gay men,” Mr Fromberg told a packed session on human sexuality. Also under discussion was “religious multiple belonging”—in other words, belonging to a clutch of different faiths at once. (Online source)

First off it's ridiculous saying Wild Goose is a Celtic metaphor for the Holy Spirit. True Christians would never use a metaphor and it's obvious the type of people they are trying to attract. I can't believe how many people are being sucked in by all these movements that are so blatantly wrong. It also made me very sad to see children there that are being taught mysticism. :(

One of the promos for the festival looked very much like what you'd probably see at some pagan ritual. The guy says some truth about God (which god?) being an all consuming fire but fire is the main part of the video. It wasn't anything you'd expect in the worship of the one true Living God.


The description under the video said:
So come create your own experience. Do art. Do theology. Sing all night. See amazing films. Stoke your spirit.

DO theology, STOKE you're Spirit??? Very weird.

Along with the vile teachings which is bad enough, they go on labyrinth walks and sing hymns in a beer garden?! I wonder if they used the Celtic Book of Shadows amongst other books? If the Bible was used at all it was twisted to justify their point of view. The majority of the Christian Church has been infiltrated and corrupted. :(

I agree, the Wild Goose Celtic thing is nonsense. Whenever you see anyone follow the example of Celtics, run, they were anything but Bible Christians and full blown pagans, even the ones who adapted Christian language. When I see Celtic crosses and those decorations on any "Christian website" outside of those we may discern are ignorant, for other places it could serve as a marker.

I am sad too, to see children and young people sucked into this mysticism.

In the UU, I saw these type of events first hand, and well they MATCH everything except they throw a few more Christian words into it all. Mandela painting, Buddhist Koan flavored sayings: "Thegodisnowhere" T-shirt, which could mean "god is no where" or "god is now here". They love that sort of thing.

Yeah god as the all consuming fire thing, is bad too, interesting that is taught in Mormonism and other false religions.

on that video, he seems a bit obsessed with fire...LOL

"images of god"...the 'god" of a thousand faces...lucifer....subtle deceptions mixing new age lies with "christian words"

What is that weird stuff about urinating on camp fires. Just strange and creepy.

All that stuff about "do theology, stoke your spirit", All very familiar to me. It has amazed me how the Unitarian Universalist Association seems to have been the practice model for what they were going to infuse into Christianity. They lure people into false religion via experiences, and mysticism and blend it all together into a nasty stew.

I am sure they would see the Celtic book of shadows as holding "truth". I had UU ministers do sermons on Celtic "spirituality". Hey remember they read bible verses even in the UU, but they are always twisted to support the new age lies.

I think the Christian church is so far gone, it isn't funny. It's done. With the except of a few fundamentalist hold-outs with truly born again pastors, they all have fallen away.

oops typo-except=exception

As for the above too, the real Christian church is not done, but gates of hell will never prevail against it....[unlike what Catholics have said]

The majority of churches have fallen away.
