Critical issues

This section highlights important and urgent issues for Christians living in the first decade of the 21st Century.

  Crisis in the Anglican Communion: on the election of Gene Robinson
  Leanne Payne comments on the recent decision of the Episcopal Convention to appoint gay bishops in general and the election of Gene Robinson in particular as well as exhorting us to not dialog with darkness: Dialogue with Darkness ends in Darkness. Andy Comiskey speaks out the danger of “Cheap Grace”.
  Harry Potter and the Paganization of Children’s Culture
  We are pleased to present two excellent articles on J.K. Rawlings’ Harry Potter novels. The articles articulate the problem with gnostic symbols and morality that permeate these novels and which are at loggerheads with orthodox Christianity. In addition the articles make needed distinctions between Rawlings’ novels and the works of great Christian minds such as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis.
  Spiritual Mapping: A Misguided Focus on the Demonic

This article critiques “Strategic Level Spiritual Warfare” as promoted by C. Peter Wagner and others. After decades of observing similar extreme teachings on “spiritual warfare” Mrs. Payne sounds a warning for Christians to steer clear of this false teaching

Reprinted from the Leanne Payne Newsletter, Summer 2001.

  Jungian Gnosticism
  The phenomena of gnosticism has entered into Christian thought in 20th and 21st century. This has come about primarily through a deadly synthesis of Jungianism (the psychology inspired by C.G. Jung) with Christianity, and has been steadily moving forward, beginning with its entrance into Roman Catholic and Episcopal renewal in the mid 20th century and onward from there into the heart of Evangelicalism. The dangerous repercussions of this cannot be overstated.
