Another excellent article by Apprising exposing the growing cesspool of false teachings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ:

One excerpt but I do not want to spoil you reading it,
All mystics have to jettison reason in order to create their own synthetic version of reality; but the above is absolutely backward, and rooted in panentheism. This is not Christianity; it’s actually spiritual suicide. We’ve already seen, from the eyewitness deposition of the Apostle John, the incontrovertible evidence that Jesus Himself had what we would today often refer to as a “high view” of Scripture. Christ did not teach us to transcend [read: abandon] reason; in fact, quite the opposite.
Not only that, but from the perfect paradigm of Christ Jesus—the Author and Finisher of the Christian Faith—toward Holy Scripture we can see yet another example of, as well as the actual Source for, the Reformation principle of Sola Scriptura.
Some may ask, what is panentheism? For a quick definition here is a quote with an online source to more to keep what is being taught in perspective:
Question: “What is panentheism?”
Answer: Related to Process Theology, panentheism is essentially a combination of theism (God is the supreme being) and pantheism (God is everything). While pantheism says that God and the universe are coextensive, panentheism claims the God is greater than the universe and that the universe is contained within God. Panentheism holds that God is the “supreme effect” of the universe. God is everything in the universe, but God also is greater than the universe. Events and changes in the universe affect and change God. As the universe grows and learns, God also increases in knowledge and being. (Online Source: http://www.gotquestions.org/panentheism.html)
May this be a help to some of you in your walk as you defend against the wiles of our adversary the devil!
Ephesians 6:10-13 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
