In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping. (2 Peter 2:3)

Heaven To Protestant Evangelicalism: “Um, Have You Lost Your Mind!?”

While we don’t always agree with everything espoused by some of the great preachers of old, such as an R. A. Torrey, they weren’t exactly “politically correct” when they would speak of preachers in the original Cult of Liberal Theology as “women wearing men’s trousers.” However, this little missive is yet another a nauseating example of how those who practice Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM) long enough like Rob Bell or Brennan Manning eventually come away with an effete man-centered love of the self (see—2 Timothy 3:2).

The sad fact is this CSM—a regurgitated Roman Catholic pietism blended with corrupt Quaker mysticism straight out of the The Cult of Guru Richard Foster—is a festering boil upon the Body of Christ. Don’t think so? Well, consider O, But Baptist State Convention Of North Carolina (SBC) Wanyed You To Know… and Georgia Baptist Convention (SBC) Now Promoting the Cult of Richard Foster for examples of entire state conventions within the pretending to be Protestant Southern Baptist Convention that are now busy spreading this spiritual sewage completely counter to the Reformaton.

I know I don’t have all the fancy degrees of many of the leaders in the SBC (can you even have leaders with an Idol of Autonomy?) but let’s see if we can help the ed-jah-ma-ca-ted think this through using reductio ad absurdum. For a proper Christian spirituality “Protestant” Southern Baptists are today turning to Living Spiritual Teacher and Quaker mystic “Roshi” Richard Foster (and since when were Quakers evangelicals?) steeped in the mysticism of apostate Roman Catholicism—and specifically messed up mystics like Teresa of Avila and seducing spirits like Ignatius of Loyola.

Now consider that ol’ Ignatius of Loyola founded the Jesuits, which were kind of a spiritual Gestapo of the Counter Reformation; in other words they were against it, k. As was Teresa of Avila and her duped disciple John of the Cross who are heretical heroes to “Brother” Foster. O, by the way, have you ever looked into the Quaker view of the Reformation? Their founder George Fox, who tells us he received direct revelation from God, throughly repudiated Sola Scriptura. I mean c’mon, who needs Scripture when you’re “centering down” to chat with the Lord himself, eh. But I digress.

Ok, so as I asked before: If the Roman Catholic Church was deemed apostate during the Protestant Reformation, and it was; and if it hasn’t changed one iota in any of the dogma of demons deemed unBiblical by the Reformers, and it hasn’t; do you suppose it makes any sense whatsoever for Protestant evangelical Christians to now return to practices taught by apostate Roman Catholic monks and monkettes who vigorously—and quite specifically—opposed the very same doctrines that as evangelicals you, at least, give lip service to believing?
