"Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast 
of the field which the LORD God had made."
(Genesis 3:1)

How can anything as apparently so utterly innocuous as a colouring book actually be HARMFUL? Preposterous, yes? Hasn't such a thing been an essential part of everyone's childhood? Haven't we all sat down with a set of pencils or crayons or felt-tip pens or inevitably filthy water colours, and endeavoured (and usually failed) to keep within the lines and not end up with an indescribable daub? Surely to even suggest that a colouring book of all things can be potentially DANGEROUS is to have completely lost the plot? I only wish that was indeed so, but sadly it is all too true! That old serpent is nothing if not subtle in the way he baits his traps...

Have you perhaps noticed that a huge market has now sprung up for colouring books, a market that is catering not for children but for adults? It has taken off massively, with the activity being enthusiastically promoted as being a wonderful way of "taking time out" and creatively "chilling" in the midst of an increasingly chaotic and furiously paced lifestyle, that has become the 21st. century norm.

The Works' enticing window display in Neath, South Wales.

"Appearing at the top of every book chart, adults are going crazy for the therapeutic task of doodling and colouring in and here at The Works you can find a great range of Adult Colouring books!"

Are you getting the picture? (No pun intended!) If you are a born-again believer reading this, and are not feeling quite sickened in your spirit, or not at the very least raising a quizzical eyebrow in reaction, then that should be a cause for considerable concern... because all this is a veritable tsunami of New Age seduction! And New Age in a nutshell is simply Hindu-Buddhist spirituality re-packaged for the Western mindset, and standing in complete pagan opposition to the Christian Faith. 

The vast majority of the people rushing to buy these books and sharpen their brightly coloured pencils, undoubtedly have no idea at all as to what exactly they are really getting themselves into. What they see as a pleasant stress-relieving pastime of creating pretty patterns, is in reality a soft and subtle introduction to and initiation into the world of the occult! 

You will note in the above titles the prominence of two particular M words: MANDALAS and MINDFULNESS. So let's look at what these actually are.

MANDALAS are essentially the visual equivalent of mantras, serving the same purpose through the formulation of a pattern as does the repetition of a word or words in a mantra. Mandalas and mantras are both occult methods of assisting a person to "centre" i.e. enter into an altered state of consciousness, or "the silence" as it is often referred to. It is all about putting the mind "on hold" so to speak, an "emptying" which can even involve entering into a trance. Emptying, by its very nature, leaves a void which can then be filled with an alternative to what has been displaced. When the natural is suspended in such a way, the supernatural easily comes to the fore. It's why meditation is a time-honoured fast-track method of making contact with "the spirit realm."

MINDFULNESS might be described as "entry level" Eastern meditation. If you've not encountered this word and concept before, you'll soon come across it everywhere. In educational establishments for all ages, and in all manner of workplaces, mindfulness is coming in big time! It's seen and promoted as an aid to focus, non-confrontational behaviour and enhanced productivity, and is being sold to society at large as the greatest thing since sliced bread. In mindfulness, the New Age has stealthily and successfully invaded every sector of society, and its rapid advance seems as unstoppable as a runaway train, with so many singing its praises so loudly. But make no mistake about it, mindfulness = meditation, and as stressed above, meditation is a classic occult discipline, allowing a practitioner to thereby make contact with and have dialogue with what are demonic entities, presenting themselves as being "the Ascended Masters" and "spirit guides."


"They encourage themselves in an evil matter: 
they commune of laying snares privily; 
they say, Who shall see them?"
(Psalm 64:5)

"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot:
I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then, because thou art lukewarm, 
and neither cold nor hot,
I will spue thee out of my mouth."
(Revelation 3:15-16)

The following article, written in June, 2015, was forwarded to me by its author who is a good friend of this blog, with full permission to reproduce it here if I thought it appropriate - which I most certainly do! It is a very thought-provoking piece, and I hope and pray that its message will resonate with readers. (No prizes for guessing which TV channel is referred to in the text!)

Compromise, Complicity, and Collusion

Something that's compromising makes one vulnerable to being embarrassed or incriminated in some way.

Complicity refers to the act of helping someone else behave inappropriately or illegally.

When you collude with someone, it is for the purpose of getting or doing something that is illegal or harmful; it is to act in unison or agreement, often in secret, towards a deceitful or illegal purpose. One is then guilty of collusion.

We compromise the Word of God when we fail to accept the Word. See 2 Timothy 4:3-4We also compromise when we place our own desires and the desires of others before the Word of God. See Acts 5:4

As true believers in Him, we must accept His Word as absolute and inerrant truth - 2 Timothy 3:16. We must obey His Word fully - John 14:15, 1 John 5:3, and 2 John 1:6. We must acknowledge that His Word is not to be compromised for any reason or for anyone - Deuteronomy 17:11, Proverbs 24:7, and Revelation 3:15.
It follows on, therefore, that we certainly must not collude with, or be complicit in, the sins of others.

Years ago, The Lord spoke to my spirit and said, " I will brook no compromise".
I was involved in much false teaching until The Lord, in His grace and mercy, brought me out. This all started with compromise, when I did not pay any attention to His instruction in Matthew 24:4. From there, it was a downward slope.

I have also been been at the receiving end of abuse, and have seen others abused. In my work as a Care Support Worker, I have provided support to those who have been abused; the effects on them are very distressing to witness.

False teaching and abuse often go together, I have found, though not necessarily.
At a training course at my workplace earlier this week we learnt about the various types of abuse and were taught to recognise the signs of each type and to provide examples. Sadly, I found the latter part of this exercise all too easy to answer.
One of the examples I gave was of a residential home, where some of the staff verbally and physically abused residents, whilst others, though not taking part in the abuse themselves, were nevertheless guilty of abuse because they sat by and said and did nothing while defenceless people were cruelly mocked and abused on an ongoing basis.

Even one instance of abuse where someone says or does nothing is bad enough; the one just sitting by is equally culpable as the perpetrator of the abuse. In other words, they are not only complicit, they also collude.

I reiterate; we must not collude with, or be complicit in, the sins of others. One of these sins is maltreatment, e.g. verbal abuse and controlling and / or manipulative behaviour. These are not just seen only in cultish Christian groups and churches!
Two examples immediately come to my mind. One is a certain Christian TV channel which gives a platform to many false teachers and prophets, mostly of the WoF variety.

Those of us who have lovingly shared our concerns have been verbally abused, maliciously accused, and had our characters maligned, especially by a certain person on this channel, both on live programmes and on Facebook. I speak as one of these.
A number of Godly men and sound Bible teachers left the channel in protest due to the WoF false teachers and prophets and others being given air time, but not before having tried to explain their reasons for this to the channel concerned. They were not willing to compromise with such gross error. If they had remained on the channel, they would not only have been guilty of compromise, but also of complicity and collusion. They had no alternative but to leave.

Since then, this channel has gone from bad to worse. I therefore ask, can we, or should we, have anything to do with it? That includes watching it.
For me, the answer is "no". I cannot, and will not, watch it. Surely, if we do that, we betray those who so boldly stand for the truth of His Word. Friends, that is disloyalty.

The other example is a Christian business I know. One of the owners of this business behaves in a way that is most unbecoming a Christian. They are rude to people, disappproving, critical, and cruel. They have, on several occasions I know of, reduced people to tears, and driven others away - literally. People I know, or have met, have been told to leave the premises (told, note, not asked or requested!) and then not to return as they are not welcome. Yet others are cut off,  summarily dismissed, or ignored; this person has turned their back on them, and in common parlance, "blanked" them.

Believers have witnessed this person's behaviour on a number of occasions, but have said nothing. Mind you, the said person is somewhat intimidating; you cross them at your peril! To my shame, I have witnessed this person's behaviour, but have also said and done nothing. I am equally guilty, therefore, of complicity and collusion.

But now, enough is enough. I am voting with my feet! I will not be returning to those premises whilst this person's behaviour continues thus.
If they were to contact me to ask me why I have not been back there, I will ask The Lord to give me the courage and wisdom to answer them, citing the examples of their behaviour I have given.

I therefore ask again; can we, or should we, have anything to do with premises managed by a person such as this? I think you know what my answer would be.
Please feel free to tell me if you disagree with these assertions. I welcome your input, whether you agree or disagree.

In Him, with sadness and concern,

"Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. 
But they said, We will not walk therein.
Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.
Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.
Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it."
(Jeremiah 6:16-19)

Back in December 2015, I posted the following article:

This concerned my sadly unsuccessful attempts to engage with Alex Ashton, the pastor of The Vine Christian Centre in Bridgend, South Wales. I had twice emailed him in November 2015, to bring to his attention a comprehensive collection of Kenneth Copeland quotes which proved conclusively that this man's "Jesus" is most definitely NOT the Jesus as revealed in the Scriptures, but rather "another Jesus" with "another gospel."

Mr. Ashton has regrettably demonstrated neither the grace nor the integrity to respond in any way to my correspondence. (Just for the record, my emails definitely reached their destination, as a 'Mail Failure' notice is always generated if they do not get through for any reason, and this has not occurred).

The crux of the matter is this: Mr. Ashton is a very willing and active partner of the great Word of Faith/Prosperity gospel heretic Kenneth Copeland, taking a lead role in his UK/European operation as noted in my earlier article. Even after having the incredible extent of Copeland's false teachings and blasphemies pointed out to him, Mr. Ashton has recklessly and wilfully continued with this most unrighteous yoking. 

Sadly, I find a need to write once more concerning the grievous Ashton-Copeland collusion, as it has now come to my attention that - at the instigation of the pastor himself - The Vine Christian Centre will be hosting a special "Healing Celebration" over the two days of 6th. and 7th. March, 2016 with George and Terri Pearsons: 

 I am coming to Wales by invitation of Pastor Alex Ashton. He has been watching us and was deeply moved by what the Lord said to me about God wanting His Church back. Pastor Alex wants me to come and share what the Lord has done in our church and how this outpouring will sweep across Europe. Pastor Terri, our associate Dr. Gene Bailey and I will minister this Outpouring to leaders and pastors in the Word, as well as allow the Holy Spirit to demonstrate His presence—especially in 
healing and miracles. I invite you to be come be a part of these meetings. 
God wants His Church back. The time has come for us to lead the charge and fulfill what He has in His heart. 
For the Outpouring, 
Pastor George Pearsons

Where and what is George and Terri Pearsons' church, referred to above? Well, they happen to be the Senior Pastors of the Eagle Mountain International Church at KCM's HQ in Fort Worth, Texas. They also happen to be the daughter and son-in-law of Kenneth Copeland himself! (Gene Bailey is the Senior Executive Pastor at Eagle Mountain). Need we say any more about just where their personal interests and spiritual sympathies lie? They are very comfortably ensconced right at the fountainhead of the family firm, Copeland's Completely Counterfeit Christianity Incorporated. (Trading as Kenneth Copeland Ministries).

With breathtaking irony, Pearsons proclaims that Jesus told him that He wants His Church back! By which is meant that it must receive an enormous infection - sorry, injection - of "Signs and Wonders!" I am personally absolutely convinced that the Lord does indeed want His Church back! Back, that is, out of the deluded, Laodicean clutches of the likes of Kenneth Copeland Ministries!

In his insistence on continuing to couple with this outrageously aberrant outfit, Alex Ashton seriously endangers not just his own relationship with the Lord, but that of his congregation and indeed anyone else who might be misguided enough to attend this event, which is worryingly particularly aimed at pastors and church leaders. Wales has already had one false "Outpouring" recently, at Victory Church in Cwmbran, and certainly does not need another one... this time at the apostasy-imparting hands of the Copeland dynasty!

"Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God:
because many false prophets are gone out into the world."
(1 John 4:1)

"Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?
and in thy name have cast out devils?
and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: 
depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
(Matthew 7:22-23)
