Coming From the Lighthouse Newsletter - February 6, 2007

Dear readers,

If you are new to this Blog we want to make sure you are aware of what is going on in the Church today. It seems that many, many church leaders, pastors, youth workers, publishing houses, etc., think that Contemplative Spirituality is Biblical. It is NOT! It has its roots in mysticism and one can find connections to it in Eastern religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism amongst other things.

We recommend that you do some research. Why not visit the

Lighthouse Trails Research Project website and find out more so you are not deceived.

Web: http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com

Take a closer look at what Contemplative Spirituality really is and beware that you do not get blindsided by this great deception in the church today.

You can also sign up for their Newsletter. We have posted the links to the latest issue here so that you can check out the newsletter and sign up.

Special Thanks to Lighthouse Trails for their valuable research. The things they have found are the same things we are finding in our research. It is staggering to behold that Christian leaders today are leading people into the fringes of what occultists, yogi's, and Hindu and Buddhist monks partake in. Contemplative prayer, meditation, chanting mantra's, visualising Jesus, 'the silence', 'centering down', etc.

Don't be deceived folks, Contemplative Spirituality is not of the God of the Bible! Period!

"Contemplative Spirituality: A belief system that uses ancient mystical practices to induce altered states of consciousness (the silence) and is rooted in mysticism and the occult but often wrapped in Christian terminology. The premise of contemplative spirituality is pantheistic (God is all) and panentheistic (God is in all)." [ http://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com ]
