Can the Church borrow the marketing tools of the world and apply them to the Church? What is the history of the Church Growth movement and its false premises? Who is involved in the new evangelicalism and second reformation? Why are these movements embracing contemplative mysticism? How does this movement play into the New World Order? These questions and more are answered in Church of Tares: Purpose Driven, Seeker-Sensitive, Church Growth & New World Order.
Church of Tares chronicles the man-centered pragmatism of these evangelical Christian movements in comparison to the Bible's instruction for building the Church of Jesus Christ. As a sequel to The Real Roots of the Emergent Church, Church of Tares documents the connections between the liberal Emergent Church movement and the Church Growth movement. Both movements' leadership were discipled by business management guru Peter Drucker, who was attracted to the megachurch movement as a social phenomenon that could bring about his "new society" and New World Order. Megacurch pastors Rick Warren and Bill Hybels as well as Leadership Network founder Bob Buford all acknowledge Drucker (who professed not to be a Christian) as their mentor and have built their organizations upon his secular business management philosophies rather than the foundation of Jesus Christ.
The fruit of these movements is great compromise of the Gospel and the Great Commission. Rick Warren claims to be ushering in a new spiritual awakening and second reformation with his P.E.A.C.E. Plan. But this reform appears to be a social reformation rather than a spiritual one by joining together in ministry with unbelievers to fight global giants. Such compromise has led to the affirming response letter to the Common Word document which declares Muhammad to be a prophet and the Bible and Qur'an to be of the "same Divine origin."

|Not an actual copy of Key, but a good idea.|
Spend some quiet time with the Lord. Go before Him seeking His forgiveness for your crimes. Ask Him for the grace to repent. Believe that once you do this, you will experience more of God, and His mighty hand will move on your behalf!By shifting the focus from "sin" to "crimes," the reader thinks of this from a worldly perspective. In other words, we can fully expect inmates to read this chapter, "Repent to get a shorter sentence." That is the definition of worldly repentance, and those desperate enough to lessen their earthly punishment will buy it.
|If we could only get that key...|
1:3 The books commonly called Apocrypha, not being of divine inspiration, are no part of the canon or rule of the Scripture, and, therefore, are of no authority to the church of God, nor to be any otherwise approved or made use of than other human writings. (Luke 24:27, 44; Romans 3:2)The term "deuterocanonical" means "second canon." In short, these books were never part of the original canon, being added later by the Catholic Church as part of the counter-reformation. Looking back in the annuls of church history, we see every early canon excluding these books. As there is no evidence of inspiration and Christians have rejected the Apocrypha throughout the ages, then there is no reason to view them as approved for faith or practice above any other work of man.
1:4. The authority of the Holy Scripture, for which it ought to be believed, dependeth not upon the testimony of any man or church, but wholly upon God (who is truth itself), the author thereof; therefore it is to be received because it is the Word of God. (2 Peter 1:19-21; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; 1 John 5:9)Someone might object that if a Pope or Catholic council approved these books for Christian use, then they become as such. However, no man has the ability to transform that which is human in origin into something divine. God determines the canon by inspiring Scripture, and the church must bow her knee to truth of God.
