Another Blog and Youtube UpDates On The Whosoevers



 I haven't been keep track of the Whosoevers for a long time. I wrote them off as wolves in sheep's clothing long ago after I did some earlier on exposures, in 2012 and 2013. Today I ran into some of these newer articles on the Last Hiker blog and decided to share them.

Calvary Chapel is a false apostate church. Hopefully the really saved listen to the warnings of the Holy Spirit and other sincere and honest people and run away from that place as bad as they can. They aren't even trying to hide what they are anymore in my opinion. It's gotten that way in so many arenas. They've moved the goal posts a few notches.

Brian Head Welch and Todd Bentley–Calvary Chapel says, “He’s Not Backing Those Dudes”–Really?

Calvary Chapel and the Whosoevers–Is The Church Tolerating The Sin of Balaam and Jezebel?

My Response to Calvary Chapel’s Pastor’s Perspective on the Whosoever Movement.

I don't consider Calvary Chapel part of the "real" church, not trying to nit pick here of course, but they definitely are advancing things to deceive people and more openly now too. For some reason I always think of staid UU pastors when I see or hear Brodersen, not much difference I suppose, really is there?

For newbies to this blog....Here are my articles exposing The Whosoevers from a few years ago:

An Example of the False Self-Improvement Gospel



In one of my last articles I wrote this about false self improvement: "There was this idea of "self improvement" underneath these religious words and crossing the "empowerment" rubicon, and gaining "miracles" for my life. "

Here is an example of what I am talking about when I referred to "self-improvement" false gospels and in another article I referred to false moral precepts being laid on people.

Joyce Meyer: God's Plan for Your Life

"Just like trees need pruning from time to time to remove dead branches or areas where there is overgrowth, you and I need to be pruned or reshaped at different times in different areas of our lives. We may not enjoy the pruning process, but when it's over, we're much better off than we were before.

You see, God wants us to be at our very best — spiritually, emotionally and physically.
John 15:2 (AMPC) says, "Any branch in Me that does not bear fruit [that stops bearing] He cuts away (trims off, takes away); and He cleanses and repeatedly prunes every branch that continues to bear fruit, to make it bear more and richer and more excellent fruit."

It's good for us to stop and evaluate our lives sometimes and ask God to show us if there are things that need to be cut off because they are hindering our growth in our relationship with Him. Ask yourself: Am I dragging around "dead branches" in my life? Maybe it's a bad relationship, an old wound from your past, or a negative attitude that keeps you from enjoying life to the fullest."

Is life supposed to be nothing but constant hoop-jumping for the "best life" now, where one's fruits are for the here and now? Now Joyce Meyer's is one of the most extreme examples, but this is a concept to be pondered. The words above, tell people they are never enough, they must "measure" up, "cut those dead branches" and "be their best". It isn't just the Catholic church teaching a false gospel of works. The human potential movement nonsense has infused so much, many don't realize how deep it's roots have sunk even into false portrayal of these false gospel. Is one's life supposed to be about "proving goodness" via fruits evident on earth immediately? Many people go to motivational seminars and they hear the whole spiel, change yourself and change your life! How many got fired up from those speeches and thought this time things will change, only to be disappointed? Religion that goes down this highway is failed religion.

What ever happened to abiding in the grace of Jesus Christ?  The Catholics told me, "I must do good works and sacraments to be worthy", those who preach one must "prune", "be their best", "achieve miracles", or jump through hoops in general, are going back to works.

Human beings love being in control, and sadly there is an insidious blending here with competitive American culture where everything is being constantly measured. Human beings are given humanistic answers where they are told they can fix everything.  People are promised via these messages, they will be healthy, confident, successful and hold higher status in society. They will be told "deliverance" will grant them "new lives". We see a lust for the "good life" in the words of Joyce Meyers, we see this messages in the churches. Happiness itself has become a contest and superficiality rules in a world where the one who has the least suffering "wins".

Just as the Dominionists teach the world can be overcome and made into an "Utopia" the same
message is being applied to INDIVIDUAL LIVES. The message is that man is in control and
rewards will come in this life and on THIS EARTH. All I have to do is look around me and know people are in some serious delusion.

"Death, The Prosperity Gospel and Me"

                                           [art work that appeared on original article: see link below]

  "Death, The Prosperity Gospel and Me" 

 As I wrote in the "Getting Real with God" article, the prosperity gospel has infused into the entire apostate church. It is interesting to see this writer call out the delusions with the prosperity gospel and even abuse of the word "blessed".

  "The prosperity gospel tries to solve the riddle of human suffering. It is an explanation for the problem of evil. It provides an answer to the question: Why me? For years I sat with prosperity churchgoers and asked them about how they drew conclusions about the good and the bad in their lives. Does God want you to get that promotion? Tell me what it’s like to believe in healing from that hospital bed. What do you hear God saying when it all falls apart? 

 The prosperity gospel popularized a Christian explanation for why some people make it and some do not. They revolutionized prayer as an instrument for getting God always to say “yes.” It offers people a guarantee: Follow these rules, and God will reward you, heal you, restore you. It’s also distressingly similar to the popular cartoon emojis for the iPhone, the ones that show you images of yourself in various poses. One of the standard cartoons shows me holding a #blessed sign. My world is conspiring to make me believe that I am special, that I am the exception whose character will save me from the grisly predictions and the CT scans in my inbox. I am blessed.


The prosperity gospel holds to this illusion of control until the very end. If a believer gets sick and dies, shame compounds the grief. Those who are loved and lost are just that — those who have lost the test of faith. In my work, I have heard countless stories of refusing to acknowledge that the end had finally come. An emaciated man was pushed about a megachurch in a wheelchair as churchgoers declared that he was already healed. A woman danced around her sister’s deathbed shouting to horrified family members that the body can yet live. There is no graceful death, no ars moriendi, in the prosperity gospel. There are only jarring disappointments after fevered attempts to deny its inevitability."


It reminds me of when a person who may have meant well, who told me I would be healed from my extreme rare health problems if I followed certain "deliverance" steps and removed all wickedness from my life. There was this idea of "self improvement" underneath these religious words and crossing the "empowerment" rubicon, and gaining "miracles" for my life. In a way while this person would reject the prosperity gospel, it had infused into her theology.

Hasn't it infused into the IFB and elsewhere where America is deemed the "special nation" and "city on the hill" and this idea that if one doesn't make one misstep, that "nothing bad" will happen? Fear is what floats this boat of the prosperity gospel. I believe many of these people are AFRAID. Fear is what leads this idea that one can escape all suffering in this world, the "illusion of control" spoken of above. This is the FEAR that even helps advance the Pre-Trib Rapture dream.

Even for those who have otherwise comfortable and easier lives [no one escapes death or suffering in the end] these things are the hedges against any loss in their minds. Many sick people in the false church system even in the non-official Word of Faith churches, have suffered under this pressure, that enough faith or the right kind of faith will give you an automatic miracle. Comfort, empathy disappear in this guise while some of the healthy detach and tell themselves, "I am blessed and there is a reason they are not."

It is religious whistling by the grave yard. Religious appeasements of the roulette wheel-- "don't let the bad stuff happen" to me. There is religious ritualism in holding off the bad and the ugly of life. There is pride in the "guaranteed miracles" and "blessings" world.

  Luke 6 20 And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. 21 Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. 22 Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. 23 Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. 24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. 25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. 26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Faith and Finances



There's more then just David Ramsey out there dealing with the money in church angle. They have now moved things to deal with the very poor. Here is a program I came across where they invite low income people to be taught how to budget their money. Sadly I see a taint of kingdom theology in their teachings. This class is directed by a group called the Chalmers Center which has one of their stated goals as the "alleviation" of poverty. This group has ties to Covenant College which is Presbyterian {Calvinist?} in it's founding. I went to their website and they spoke of "micro-financing" and globalist type projects where the "alleviation" of poverty isn't just for Americans but international in scope.

Here is one "faith and finances" class example being advertised. On comments today, I wrote about how the self-improvement stuff has become an idol. Here while not all practical advice is a bad thing, the cares of this life can be allowed to supercede what God desires. It disturbs me at this link they promise that the people will become "financially secure". Financial security and spirituality are connected in an insidious way. I find myself thinking these people would have lectured Jesus and the apostles for not budgeting and finding a decent place to live and building up their bank accounts.

I went to their website {google Faith and Finances and The Chalmers Center} and look at the curriculum and rest. In these programs, one will note that they see budgeting and "responsible" living as solving the poor's problems. There is a paternal element to this, as they judge the poor for not living life "right" with the message that solving poverty is all about making people "more responsible". The idea that the poor don't already budget to keep a roof over their head and some food in the refrigerator rankles me a bit.  What disturbs me further is that spirituality and financial health are linked in programs like this where the two don't always go hand in hand, and this ties in even to my article where many will claim blessings in this world [aka financial security] means you are considered "worthy" by God. If having a healthy bank account means "worthiness" that is a very dangerous spiritual message to people. There are evil things I have refused to follow to be in God's will which meant the sacrifice of money. Faith and Finances, do the two follow together? Not really.

Getting Real With God



So much of the "Christian" world sees God in a certain way. Some point to the ATM machine but some seem to see God, as their "magic genie" at their beck and call.  Recently I have been dealing with many challenges as written about here. However one day when there was to be no food, God provided, so I have those moments happen to me too. That said, I was pondering about the false views of God that many have.

There is little "getting real" with God, due to the delusions that the churches and others have sold. It concerns life itself.

Many Christians have made the choice not to sell out and to departed from wicked people. I didn't want to play a wicked game of success. Other factors entered in including some shortcomings of my own I deal with. I missed out on riches and things of this world by "not selling out".  There was a couple times where I had a decision to make. In America, we know a certain look, level of health and personality is desired by employers and for "success". Those things don't apply to me.

In the churches, I noticed a developing theme and yes I have talked about this with the BEST LIFE NOW articles, that there seemed to be a theme taught even in non-prosperity gospel churches, that if you were a good person and did "everything right" that you would be "blessed". This was touched upon in the poor in churches articles.

If you were tormented or sick, or life was crumbling, it was your fault and God had deemed you "unworthy". Another commenter who faced health problems some months ago told me, he definitely felt this way in the churches. You did not have the favor of God. If someone faced poverty or illness, many taught indirectly that it was a result of "sin" or they had lost the favor of God. This belief even influenced me, as I thought by becoming a Christian, that God would solve many of my problems and while I never believed in the prosperity garbage, I believed in some small way that blessings would flow and not just in the next world.

 I held out for healing and change, and a new vista, which we know in American society, they push this dream of  always striving that influences us all. America as a country culturally denies suffering in a way that is insane and this is advanced in a society where everything is about competition. As a person I did change when I was born again so I am speaking of the temporal sense of change. So many focus on success as to the detriment of everything else.

Those who tried to "help" me by telling me that if I would get "deliverance" or if I cleaned out all areas of sin in my life that it would bring me all good things in this world, actually did a lot of harm. It could have served as a severe wedge between me and God. I did have bad thoughts about proper "church people" and their nice lives, thinking God must love them more that I had to work and pray my way through. Such people will look down on people who suffer in this world as a "project" and not as a real "friend" or a even "human being". Their focus is on fixing you. In America there is no such thing as unsolvable problems. "Christianity" becomes not only as a self improvement project but also as a "fix-it" project on others to conform the down and out and brokenhearted and a hammer on many heads. The non-Faith of the Pharisees in "Christian" form.  Pharisees never loved anyone, they just wanted to keep everyone in line and the religious tithes pouring in.

This verse means spiritual things, not getting rich and getting it "right" in this world:

Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to health the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

One thing about our society is the religious matrix is used for oppression and don't think for a minute these messages of God blesses the most "worthy"  in this world aren't being used for political and other structural wickedness. How else do they get millions of duped right wingers to vote for the politicians with the least empathy for the poor? [not that the left is any better--Hillary and Cruz are both on the Goldman Sachs team].  They see the poor and other groups as "lesser" who have deserved their fate. Some of the "proper" people expect you to conform and don't have much empathy for those who won't or even cannot.

People have begun to see God and the "Christian religion" as a self-improvement and life improvement project. Don't we see this in the churches with the focus on better health-diets, better finances-David Ramsey, better social connections--cell groups? There's not just the social justice stuff to "improve" the world, there's the personal message to "improve yourself". we have this theme in everything from the recovery movement to psychology. Oprah would be the utter definition of the self improvement push. Think about how in our society how self/life improvement is the core of so much we are taught with the focus on self. We are told to all become better people according to societal often false moral constructs and while the world defines that as better off with one's life in control financially, physically and the rest how does God see BETTER?

It's a question I am pondering. My life is out of control, by all standards of society. Well maybe not completely, I'm not laying in the gutter drunk or strung out on drugs and am not homeless. I am happily married but my life has been far from the white picket fence norm.  I hope for those people they get the help and comfort they need. Financially things are a mess and stayed an absolute mess, and you all have heard that saga enough.   I don't want to go on about the financial tales of woe, but it's hard because even most of the false Christian world doesn't judge people now by their relationship with God or what kind of person they are but the outer social trappings and status in society.

All my churches told me if I had enough faith God would cure me of my severe health problems. While God gave me longer to live then I expected multiple times there was that nugget of a dream inside of being cured.

 I believed one day God would solve my household's financial problems or at least stabilize them. In the churches, many a pastor would preach that if you obeyed God, that you would be blessed in this world too.  Inside, I had this thought that one day, I would be deemed a "worthy" person too, and would see some of these blessings, not just financial, but this idea of an "better" stable life.   These are promises I believe that the churches teach that can lead to spiritual trouble for many people.

Very few are laying out the truth. Life is hard on this earth. You don't escape death and no one escapes suffering. It will come one day even if it comes when you are 90 years old. Feeding people nothing but self improvement demands and pipe dreams and denials about the realities of life leads to spiritual disasters. This whole society has become one big "keeping sweet" cult.

Some Christians get stuck in a GIMMME approach to God. All the Santa Claus garbage influences in a bad way. God is supposed to answer our prayers and give us a "good" life. What if this does not happen? It's a thought I am pondering. What does God consider a "good life"? Most likely I am going to die penniless, I only have a few friends in this world and the majority live far away from me,  though I have a husband, and had no children or grandchildren. No David Ramsey legacy's for me. I'll leave some writing and art work but with enough time even that will disintegrate. Only the things of eternity last so why are we given false promises for this life?  One commenter here gave me some good encouragement about my life, meaning more then things of the world. Many people face the hardships of life, I guess scripture would refer to the "cares of life".

Mark 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, chock the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

It can be hard thought, sometimes I have had to fight very sinful thoughts of my own. Wondering why some are so blessed and others are not. Envy is a sin to be fought. I have had to repent of some of those thoughts and more but I have been thinking about a strange issue lately. Many people don't believe in God because life is full of so much suffering.  Life stinks and God isn't there for any of us, is their absolute conclusion. By the way this applied to me when I used to be an atheist.

I was an atheist long enough to have thought this exact way. I was there TOO.  In the UU church, among the freethought set, we would complain about God.  Its funny we ranted about a "being" we didn't believe in. I even listened to this song called "Dear God " by an old alternative music band called XTC in the early 1990s. That talked about all the disasters in the world and how "god" wouldn't lift a finger to fix any of them.

"You're always letting us humans down
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
Those lost at sea and never found
And it's the same the whole world 'round"


One friend of mine would refer to God in bad ways saying God didn't want to help humanity and just watched thousands of people dying without caring like in tsunamis. In my own witnessing to people. many would tell me, God didn't care when their family died or they have been poor and lost everything or someone they loved got murdered or their child died young. I have feared even being shipwrecked myself upon the shores of severe poverty and homelessness or scary illness so don't think I place myself above any of these people. As a non-believer, I felt the same way they did too, which is why I am even writing this article.

One rare disorder I have can leave people completely bedbound. I'm not but it's the risk is there. It is so rare it took over a decade to get diagnosed. It was a one in a million strike. There's been times I have shouted to God, "WHHHHYYY?" and there's plenty others with worse things happening to them like a friend whose girlfriend had a severe stroke and has what they call "locked in syndrome" which means she can barely move at all.

Why can't we talk about what this world is really like in the churches? It's like all trouble is to be shoveled under the carpet and we are all taught to stay as children never maturing where our relationship with God remains at a fixed point of appeasements and self satisfactions for those who never have faced hard trouble. Evil itself is denied as a reality. One thing I have noticed is many in the churches seem afraid of realness. Poverty freaks them out. Really sick people freak them out. I freaked them out. They are afraid and look for world strong men [politicians] to solve their problems. People who are different are "scary" to them and to be avoided.

The immature faith presented in the churches if that was the kind I held, where God was determining some great and glorious plan for this worldly life, I would have already fallen away. That immature faith is failing many and is part of their false apostate gospel and false moral paradigms that don't come from God.

What do I mean by false moral paradigms?

Some examples would be that

Wealth determines morality
Wealth determines worth.
Beauty means you are better person
Health means you are more worthy
The more worthy and sin-free you are, the more blessed you will be in this world.

Reality isn't being discussed in this world in the religious world and what this life in this world is really about.

The churches and rest of the people all need to get REAL.

We have been sold a bill of goods. In America especially, the realities of life of growing old, dying, and bad illness is shoved under the carpet. They are not to be discussed. Plastic smiles are to be on everyone's face as they present the "best face" to the world. They sell Christianity as a self improvement program that will make our lives here better on this earth. Best life now. Well what is the reality about life? I don't mean to sound cold here. The truth is you die.  Everyone you love will die if you live long enough.  Some of us in Generation X are already seeing our friends die.  The next generation IS dying younger. You will get old. You suffer. You lose people. Satan's disciples clean you out of every penny.  That's life in this world. Some may claim I have gone Deist or something but I have not. God is not like Santa Claus handing out the  presents of a great life on earth and answering prayers like a laundry list.

The atheists who reject God for failing us all and not fixing this miserable planet and all the horrors that can await us have fallen prey to the false messages in the churches too.  I did even from the Catholic angle. When I was an atheist, I had almost already died--my lungs went bad young, and lived in boarding houses and rented rooms. I was already sick and in a lot of suffering and pain. My wealthier family already hated me. I was already poor, and was alone without a friend in the world back then. I too thought God is supposed to fix this and because He has not, why believe in God?

When I read the Bible which I started doing while in the UU to "disprove" it,  all this changed for me. The Bible was honest about life being difficult. The Bible did not have the be positive or else garbage in it. It did not say anywhere in it that being poor or sick meant you were a bad person. Bless those that mourn, cry when a child is born because life is so hard. It talked about one's enemies seeking to destroy you. It talked about many of the wicked being blessed with money.  Unlike the candyland, unicorn dreams of life here supposedly being great, it was honest, about life and troubles on this earth.

 
Psalm 9:13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
 
I have shocked a few people saying this world is Satan run and we are all suffering. 1 John 5:19 says the whole world lies in wickedness.  What does that really mean? This place is messed up.

Many people thought my view of Planet Earth was far too dark. They all told me I had a bad attitude. But let me examine this further, everyone dies right? No one escapes it, we are promised eternal life so I am talking THIS WORLD. Everyone dies and rots here and no one manages to "get out of it". In a society where they almost seem to believe everyone lives forever they teach false things about God, like "god" is like a "fairy grandmother" to them who will make all their wishes come true. And these things take a very insidious spiritual affect. The "God's got a plan for your life" stuff has turned Christianity into a "gimme" "bucket list". No one cares about pleasing God or others in this paradigm, they care about rising up to be a "good Christian" and their own reputation in their respective communities. They remain clueless about evil in the world. It simply doesn't exist to them. If you deny something exists you definitely don't stand against it.

So many people are falling away from God because of the suffering of this world. The suffering outside of chastisement for sin is NOT from God. The devil's children are making us suffering. Sin and a fallen world brought death in and hideous diseases. War comes from human greed, the luciferians on top and endless sins.  So many have turned their backs on God believing all the suffering has been sent by God. I don't want to be stuck in a limited relationship with God that denies the truth about this world and what it is really about, or the wickedness that is here. Leave that for the apostate churches. Some people do see me as "too intense" of a person, maybe I am. Maybe I think life is better lived seeing the truth.

 The false moral paradigm in the churches that goodness is connected to the good life here, is destroying faith across the board. It is oppressing the broken hearted, it is dividing people from God who see "god" as their enemy who has no interest in helping them. It is killing comfort and love for others. It is a new legalism in the false apostate church that says, be blessed and have a proper life and "fit in' with us. It is not the gospel but a false gospel of this world. It lies about the world to people. This is why the churches are clueless and deny reprobation and evil, this is why they are deceived by the political luciferians. It is Disneyland Dreams and the Devil's lies.

Maturing in the faith is realizing what life is really about, not fantasy dreams of life on this earth. Sure some of the non-believers will call us fanciful for believing in heaven and God Himself, but the lack of "getting real" and admitting the truth about life, is part of the problem. One thing in my own prayer life was facing the facts about life here on this earth and my own expectations about life and the false moral paradigms--burdens of the Pharisees, where people are to prove themselves to people via attaining the "good life" here.

2 Cor 4:8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair.

For Duped Right Wingers Who Plan to Vote For Cruz

Was the Zika Outbreak Caused by Genetically Modified Mosquitos?







Have you heard about this Zika virus spread by mosquitos? It causes it's own illness but has been linked to the birth defect of microcephaly. This is a big deal, it means severe disabilities and retardation and it used to be extremely rare.  It's a pretty big deal with an entire nation tells all of it's women not to have babies for two years.  Sounds like more population control!

Singles in the Churches: "Rejection is a Deep Wound"

Check out the comments on this one. Family idolatry has only worsened in the apostate church system. If you don't fit the cookie cutter models, you are not wanted. This influenced me being childless. Many single people especially over a certain age fare far worse. In some ways this is good in that these people will be spared a closer tie to apostate churches, hopefully some will find ways to serve and fellowship outside the bricks and mortars. It's a shame really, given some of the apostles were single and 1 Corinthians 7:7.

Brainwashing the Kids for Blind Obedience



This is some mighty brainwashing for the kids to be blindly obedient. Hmm, it's just not the Catholics who hold a monopoly on an "infallible" Pope. Wow! There's a message of salvation by works too in this.

Iglesia ni Cristo[4] (Tagalog pronunciation: [ɪˈgleʃɐ ni ˈkɾisto], abbreviated as INC; English: Church of Christ) is an international Christian denomination that originated in the Philippines. It was registered in 1914 by Felix Y. Manalo,[5][6][7] who became its first executive minister.
The Iglesia ni Cristo proclaims itself to be the one true church and says that it is the restoration of the original church founded by Jesus and that all other Christian churches, including the Roman Catholic Church and Protestant churches, are apostates.[6][8] INC doctrine cites that the official registration of the Church with the Government of the Philippine Islands on July 27, 1914, by Felix Y. Manalo—upheld by its members to be the last messenger of God—was an act of divine providence and the fulfillment of biblical prophecy concerning the reestablishment of the Church of Christ in the Far East[9][10] concurrent with the coming of the Seventh seal marking the end of days.[2][11]

Interesting logo, they have the sun rays for sun worship, the Jesuit "white dove" except this one isn't dive bombing like Calvary Chapel, the freemasonic compass, the torch, and upside down triangle or "pyramid".
