The following material was included in 3 separate presentations I made at Discernment conferences this Fall. The presentations were accompanied by clips from DVDs to illustrate the points. The basic outline of these talks is below. This is a work in progress, and at some point there may be a webpage where further examples are posted, including the visual clips.
The reader must keep in mind that this report illustrates the problems inherent in the Dominionist worldview. Many of these false teachings are actually part of denominational doctrines, some were concocted in the past several decades, some come out of the occult. There is a dearth of solid theological refutations of these heresies and errors. Why is this? There were great and grave compromises in the seminaries over the past century, where these heresies were allowed to co-exist with fundamentalism, and where they were permitted to gain ground and become more acceptable—"to the point that common people, humble pastors, and concerned professors in small Bible colleges and seminaries were silenced. Furthermore, these false teachings went mainstream through the rapid rise of the modern televangelists, Christian books and seminars, and parachurch organizations.
Each day at Discernment Ministries we receive correspondence from precious sheep struggling to understand these errors. We exhort those who read this, who are capable of writing solid biblical refutations of these errors, to prayerfully consider their responsibility before God and man to write rebuttals.
End-Time Scenarios of the New Alchemists
“But is now made manifest
by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ,
Who hath abolished death,
and hath brought life
to light through the Gospel.”
(2 Tim. 1:10)
THE RESURRECTION OF ANCIENT ALCHEMY
Since Satan’s great fall, man too has attempted to become like God Most High. Down through the centuries rebellious men have stiffened their necks in defiance to the Creator and have devised various methods and religious pathways in vain attempts to morph themselves into immortal or divine beings—apart from the Gospel of Salvation. All of them—from the ancient alchemists to the modern-day Mormons, Masons, and Transhumanists—have failed (and will fail) miserably because the God of the Bible has chosen only one way for sinful mankind to achieve true immortality: through faith in the death, burial and resurrection of His Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
In contradiction to the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, the “Postmodern Prophecy Paradigm” (PPP)-leaders (our term) have given hearty heed to these rebellious ideologues. By giving credence to these machinations to undo the curse of sin, these PPP-teachers peddle new eschatology scenarios to unsuspecting Christians under the guise of a postmodern scientific alchemical concoction: Transhumanism (or Posthumanism).
The PPP-proponents have capitalized on the foreboding and sensational elements of the Posthuman movement by stirring up fear and dread with unbiblical teachings that say the Transhumanists will not only succeed in their God-defying schemes, but in doing so will threaten the extinction of the human race. This faulty idea is found nowhere in Scripture.
