VFTB 199: The Prophecy Forum

Prophecy ForumTHE STUDY of prophecy is, according to some prominent evangelicals, not what Jesus wanted from his followers. We’re joined this week by some very intelligent men who respectfully disagree.

Our guests hail from the fields of law, biotechnology, and information technology: John Haller, Gary Winkelman, and Doug Woodward, respectively.  Together, they are part of the team behind the Prophecy Forum, a new ministry that hopes to encourage and deliver solid teaching on prophecy with an emphasis on current events. Their first event, “A World Turned Upside Down”, features Bill Salus, Russ Dizdar, Doug Krieger, “Coach” Dave Daubenmire, Gonz Shimura, and our guests, Friday and Saturday, November 14 and 15 in Dublin, Ohio.  Log on to the Prophecy Forum’s website for more information and to register.

VFTB at Pikes Peak: Doug Stauffer – Progressive Illumination

A GROUP of self-anointed “prophets” have gathered quite a following in the modern charismatic movement, declaring that God is revealing new things about His work.

The hidden tragedy is that oneness with the divine — enlightenment — is basically the realization that your individuality is an illusion; that you are, basically, an indistinct part of an infinite whole.

James Fox spent five years learning and teaching yoga and other Eastern practices taught by the likes of Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle, named two of the most spiritually influential people on Earth by Watkins Books, a shop in London that has specialized in esoteric (read: occult) titles for over 120 years. James, who founded the Facebook group 33 Degrees of Deception, rejected their influence for the saving grace of Jesus Christ. He explains why, and why he’s concerned about the spread of Eastern mysticism in the American evangelical church.
