THE LOST TOMB OF JESUS - A Death-Blow to Christianity?
The Discovery Channel's March 4 premier of a controversial documentary claiming that the tomb of Jesus and his family has been found, is stirring great debate among scientists, scholars, religious leaders, and people in general. Some claim that it disproves the Resurrection and renders Jesus no more than a mortal man. They also claim that it bolsters the theoriesof Jesus marriage to Mary Magdalene, and the idea that He has descendants living today. The film comes on the heels of the fictional portrayal of those same claims in The Da Vinci Code.

THE DA VINCI CODE - Truth or Gnostic Propaganda?
Now that Dan Brown's run away bestseller The Da Vinci Code has been made into a block buster movie (it grossed $77 million its first weekend), the storm over its controversial attack against Jesus, the Bible and Christianity in general has been renewed with even greater fervor. Movies of ten have a greater impact upon people than do the books upon which they are based. The audio-visual impression, particularly at the hands of a talented director like Ron Howard, is far more impressive than slogging through almost 500 pages of a small paper back book.

ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT - Or Demons of Deception?
There has been of late a great increase of interest in the subject of angels, not only among Christians, but among people of many religions and among New Age practitioners in particular. Due to the continued popularity of the Charles and Frances Hunter book, "Angels on Assignment," and the rash of testimonies of alleged angelic visitations since its publication, this analysis of these claims remains one of the most important writings on the subject. Are these really God's angels, or are they demons of deception? You decide.

CELEBRATION 2000 - Neo-Orthodoxy and the New Evangelization
written toward the end of 1999, this report on the plans to "celebrate" Jesus during the new mellennium is still pertinent to neo-orthodoxy and the new evanglism which waters down the Gospel for the sake of inclusion. This ecumenical hoax has found great favor within the institutional churches. Yet, as Al Dager points out, there is a strong social-gospel agenda which incorporates New Age philosophy and cooperation with the United Nations and the world's religions for the sake of unity. Not everything that purports to "celebrate" Jesus has to do with the Jesus of the Gospel.

COVENANTALISM - A New Name for an Old Spirit
This examination into a religious philosophy that contains sufficient truth to gain the confidence of Christians is, in truth, a deception that leads into bondage to the dictates of men. It examines the practice of convenanting and taking of oaths to be in subjection to religious leaders. It is nothing more than the shepherding movement repackaged, but it has been gaining adherents among the institutional churches for some time.

THE GOSPEL IN THE ZODIAC - A Biblical Analysis
As this age draws to a close man's search for life's meaning is taking him on a frenzied foray into ancient wisdom and and occult philosophy. Even many of today's Christians feel a need to prove the veracity of the Gospel by some means outside of Scripture. An example is a currently popular theory which Al Dager calls "the Gospel in the Zodiac." This theory is based on the tenuous assumption that the Zodiac was originally designed by God as a witness to His plan of redemption. Al looks at the various zodiacal signs and the theories that surround them, demonstrating that this stretch of imagination has not basis in biblical truth.

HOLY LAUGHTER - Rodney Howard-Browne and the Toronto Blessing
Many churches continue to report spontaneous, uncontrollable laughter erupting from their congregations, even during times of solemn ceremony or messages from the pulpit.

INNER HEALING - A Biblical Analysis
Examines the New Age origins of this practice that gained popularity in the churches as they began to adopt the psychological model for ministry. The beliefs of the alleged "Christian" proponents of this technique for healing emotions are also examined.

PENSACOLA: REVIVAL OR REVELING?
Following strongly on the heels of the "Toronto Blessing," aka "holy laughter," the Brownsville, Florida, Assembly of God church, located in a suburb of Pensacola, expanded with even more outbreaks of spontaneous bizarre behavior which its leaders attributed to the work of the Holy Spirit. While both movements have seen the peak of their popularity, they represent watershead events that will no doubt increase among the institutional churches. This study looks at the Pensacola outbreak from a biblical perspective, and reveals the lies and deceit behind its propagation.

PROMISE KEEPERS' Washington, D.C. COVENANT
Building upon its popularity, Promise Keepers organized its "million man march" with the intent of bringing to the nation's capital its appeal for denominational and racial reconciliation. In the process, it called for all churches to voluntarily look to Promise Keepers as their central authority for those agendas. It also called for men as individuals to covenant with God under Promise Keepers' auspices certain promises that amount to spiritual bondage. Regardless of the "positive" spin put on this organization by its proponents, it has proven to be dangerous to the spiritual health of men.

SIX ROMAN CATHOLIC DOCTRINES - THAT NULLIFY SALVATION BY GRACE
Citing the Roman Catholic St. Joseph's Edition of the New American Bible, this study proves the truth of salvation by grace. It then proves that the Roman Catholic Church nullifies salvation by grace in spite of its words to the contrary. According to Roman Catholicism, salvation comes by God's grace, but the only way to receive that grace is through partaking of the Roman Catholic sacraments dispensed through the priesthood. An important aid for non-Catholic Christians in understanding the true nature of Roman Catholic "grace," this study arms believers with the knowledge to witness to their Roman Catholic friends and family.
