This article, published in the Jan-Mar 2013 Bible League Quarterly, puts all the pieces together, like diabolical black pearls on a string exposing the linkage of RICK WARREN, MARK DRISCOLL, JOHN PIPER, GOSPEL COALITION, SOVEREIGN GRACE MINISTRIES, NEO-CALVINISM, ACTS29 NETWORK, ECUMENISM, AND CHRISLAM. Sovereign Grace Ministries is in meltdown. I was struck by this revelation. The root system of Sovereign Grace Ministries is the shepherding movement. The root of Calvinism is Theocracy. Combine the two, you have a demonic alloy of two metals that are even stronger when these principalities are combined. My term for this bondage and abuse of spiritual authority vs. liberty in Christ, is “Control Freak Christianity” OR SPIRITUAL EXTORTION.”
Dear James Sundquist
I’ve been through much of your material on Rick Warren and am in agreement with what you say. The video on Warren is particularly good. I’m a reformed Baptist and a member of the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London. I’ve set up two websites to contend for the Faith.

The new Calvinist website deals with the issues of the so-called New Calvinists, namely John Piper, Tim Keller, Mark Driscoll and Al Mohler. Again, I would be interested in your comments. Both Tim Keller and Mark Driscoll are very popular in the UK.

KELLER’S FALSE GOSPEL
BY DR. E.S. WILLIAMS
Tim Keller: Dangerously Influential
By Dr. Paul M. Elliott
Part one of a series
Dr. Timothy J. Keller is one of today’s most influential religious leaders, and one of the most dangerous. At the heart of the danger is his widespread promotion of a false gospel that encapsulates Keller’s un-Biblical views of God, His Word, His creation, man, sin, the cross, and the mission of Christ’s church.
Who is Tim Keller?
Born in 1950, Timothy J. Keller is Senior Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City. After undergraduate studies at Bucknell University, Keller earned a Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Seminary in 1975. In 1981 he completed studies for a Doctor of Ministry degree at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. Westminster was then, and is now, a hotbed of neo-liberal theology. Its trademarks are the deconstruction of the inspiration of Scripture and the doctrine of justification by faith alone. Keller continues to teach at Westminster as an adjunct professor of practical theology.

THE RIGHT DIRECTION?
An examination of where the New Evangelical policy of no separation from those associated with error and apostasy has led the theological college WEST.

It was the policy of the British Evangelical Council (BEC) and Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones not to engage in church-level fellowship with evangelicals remaining in the ‘mixed denominations.’1 Individual churches, evangelical or otherwise, in denominations belonging to the World Council of Churches (WCC) were excluded from membership of the BEC. The BEC Official Statement: Attitude to Ecumenicity was clear on its policy that it would not accept into membership churches belonging to the Ecumenical Movement as to do so would compromise the Gospel and blur the distinction between truth and error…

MARK DEVER EDICT: YOU CANNOT RESIGN FROM CHURCH MEMBERSHIP WITHOUT PERMISSION
“Churches’ membership procedures should reflect the fact that the church, not the individual member, has authority to accept and dismiss members. A member cannot unilaterally resign. A member can submit their intention to resign to the church, and the church will either accept or reject that intention.” IXMarks
