The Emergent Deception, Are you sure it's your Jesus? Important: Read the summary below first. This second part of the presentation will focus on Jesus Culture.

***** Important: What is this Video all about? In Summary *****

When looking at these manifestations, how do we apply the scriptures to test whether the spirit behind this ministry is from God?

We apply 1 John 4 - We are to test the spirits: The Litmus Test

On Denying the Incarnation -- Jesus was both 100% God and 100% man in His earthly ministry. Many false doctrine and teachers fail this test -- they are serving a different Jesus, one who was only a man that received the holy spirit and had to be born-again!

1 John 4 1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.

A Christian Cult is defined by what they believe about Jesus.  What does historic Biblical Christianity teach us about Jesus?  The Bible teaches us that Jesus is the One and Only True God from eternity past who had no beginning and will have no end.

A Christian Cult is any group which deviates from Biblical, orthodox, historical Christianity. i.e. They deny the Deity of Christ.

1 John 4: If a teacher does not believe Jesus was 100% God 100% man - then we should reject that and every other teaching from that same teacher outright because it is a different jesus. If it is a different jesus, then it is a different gospel and that gospel cannot save.

Jesus Culture is not a band but the name of the outreach ministry of Bethel Church. Bethel Church and Jesus Culture falls under the spiritual authority of it's leader, Bill Johnson. Bill Johnson falsely teaches that: "Jesus was a man in right relationship with God. He put his divinity aside and he stood there (at crucifixion) as a human being completely dependent on the father and he was modeling for us what would be possible for every person that would be yielded to the spirit of God and be completely free from sin"

Jehova's witnesses believe Jesus was the Archangel Michael incarnate, Mormons believe Jesus is the literal son of god and his goddess wife begotten in the pre-existence. They too believe in a different jesus -- here's the clincher: Would we be more open to their teachings if they performed amazing miracles and healings?, had a huge outpouring of the (so-called) "holy spirit" and had the most beautiful worship songs praising their jesus?

Why is it important that Jesus is and was God? Because if he was just a mere spirit filled man (like Jesus Culture believes) or an angel, then his death would not have been sufficient to pay for our sins.

***** End of Summary *****

Important Note: when you look at these clips, continually ask the questions: Is the real Jesus being made known here, is there mention of conviction of sin, repentance and need for a spiritual rebirth by accepting the gift of salvation, inviting Jesus into lives, confessing Him as the only son of God and the cost of discipleship? Is this 'movement' and passion for God born out of true repentance or based on the experiential? Listen to the interviews and discern whether people are cut the heart out of conviction of sin or are they chasing after 'encounters'? Are people passionate because of the joy of their salvation and victory over sin and death, or are miracles and manifestations the most memorable testimonies in their lives?

Note: the majority of the video footage is from Youtube clips taken with smart-phones plus ones that are of less than ideal quality.
