Apologetics Conferences & New Age Dialogue


Brooks Alexander’s participation in the Lausanne Consultation, 1980…

MISCELLANEOUS [SCP report about Brooks Alexander at Lausanne’s COWE]


Thailand 1980 (In Review)


SCP Director Brooks Alexander flew halfway around the globe to participate in the “Consultation on World Evangelism” (COWE) held June 16-27 in Thailand. The “Consultation” was one of several sub-conferences that were spun off from the 1974 International Congress on World Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland. COWE was held in Pattaya, Thailand…


The Consultation as a whole (delegates, staff, observers and guests), consisted of over 800 people from almost every part of the world, including mainland China and several East European “Soviet bloc” countries. All these participants gathered together in plenary sessions at lest twice daily for prayer, worship and keynote speeches. The real work of COWE, however, was carried on in 17 study groups (called mini-consultations), each of which dealt with the problems and prospects of evangelism directed toward particular “people-groups.” Our director [Brooks Alexander] worked with the group on “reaching mystics and Cultists,” a title that was later revised to “Reaching New Religious Movements.” Subjects of the mini-consultations included “Reaching Marxists,” “Reaching Jews,” “Reaching Refugees,” “Reaching Nominal Protestants,” “Reaching Hindus,” “Reaching Secularists,” etc., etc. Each group produced a paper of presumably safe advice on its assigned topic by the end of the conference.


Alexander reported that the composition of the “New Religious movements” group reflected the breadth of COWE as a whole: the 17 participants represented ten nations and five continents. This turned out to be both a strength and a weakness: “The extreme diversity of backgrounds and viewpoints in our group, the scope of our subject and the limitations of time combined to create extraordinary pressures for the participants…”


The paper produced by the “New Religious Movements” group was 53 pages of typed, single-spaced manuscript, the longest of those from the Thailand conference. All papers from the mini-consultations which met at Pattaya will be published in booklet form sometime in the fall. Alexander made a major contribution to the report drafted by this group. The material he prepared will form the basis for an expanded paper on evangelism to be published by SCP later this fall.

SCP Hosts Conference on New Religious Trends


The Spiritual Counterfeits Project hosted a three-day conference on new religious movements and related subjects November 2-4, 1979. Approximately 60 people were present, representing a number of Christian organizations with ministries similar to the SCP’s.

A Book Review

The Emerging Order: God in an Age of Scarcity by Jeremy Rifkin with Ted Howard (…1979)… Reviewed by Neil Duddy.



Editor’s Note:


The SCP book review above was written by Neil Duddy.


Duddy would be the defendant named in the Witness Lee lawsuit (Lee v. Duddy et al) over Duddy’s book The God-Men, published by InterVarsity Press. SCP filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in the early 1980s. Gordon Melton, head of the Institute for the Study of American Religion, testified on behalf of the Local Church/Witness Lee.


Lee v. Duddy Punitive Damages Awarded

Total:          $11,900,000.00


It is curious that the publisher of The God-Men, InterVarsity Press/IVP, was not named in the lawsuit. However, James Sire, Senior Editor of InterVarsity Press was named as a defendant with Neil Duddy.

SCP Hosts Conference on New Religious Trends


The Spiritual Counterfeits Project hosted a three-day conference on new religious movements and related subjects November 2-4. Approximately 60 people were present, representing a number of Christian organizations with ministries similar to the SCP’s. Also attending were a number of seminary and college professors whose expertise was of great value. Top representatives of the major evangelical media (Christianity Today, Eternity and InterVarsity Press) and several European delegates were also present.


While some time was devoted to the larger and more influential cults, the majority of the sessions concentrated on areas of broader philosophical and theological concerns. Some were: (1) The acceptance of occult philosophy and mystical experience in western society; (2) the hermeneutics (i.e., the misuse and/or reinterpretations of Scripture) of cultic groups; (3) psychics and psychic phenomena, including reincarnation; (4) the role that spiritism and demonology play in false religion; (50 legal and constitutional ramifications of the emerging new religious movements and the penetration of their philosophies into public life; (6) a look at the trend toward increasing authoritarianism within contemporary evangelicalism; and (7) how to present the gospel to cultists, with a discussion of rescue and rehabilitation techniques and methods.


As a result of the conference, we are establishing a loose network for sharing information and counseling services. We hope to convene further confabs in the future, as the ‘80s will undoubtedly see burgeoning psychic/cultic activity, alternative new religions and occult philosophy. Perhaps one of the most succinct and pregnant conclusions came in the form of an off-hand wisecrack by Brooks Alexander. “Ladies and gentlemen, this is a blue-chip business –– spiritual error is a growth industry.”

Conference on Deception and Discernment

March 7-8, 1986

First Presbyterian Church

Berkeley, California

• What is spiritual deception?

• How can you know it when you see it?

• What is a Christian response?


These and many other questions will be answered as SCP and EMNR (Evangelical Ministries to New Religions) co-sponsor a conference on deception and discernment this coming spring. This conference is open to the public.


Danny Korem, world renown magician and Christian, will be the keynote speaker and will discuss psychic deception. Plenary sessions featuring SCP researchers and other competent speakers will examine spiritual deception in its various forms and will suggest tools for discernment. All this will be complimented by workshops on a variety of topics such as self-help groups (est, Lifespring et al), hypnosis, metaphysics and the New age.


NOTE: Pre-conference professional seminars for persons involved vocationally in dealing with new religious movements, spiritual trends and cults will take place on March 6-7 before the larger conference. Neo-paganism will be the focus. (This smaller conference will not be open to the public.)

"In 1940, Norman Vincent Peale (33rd degree Mason) formed the psychologically-oriented ‘Foundation for Christian Living,’ which in 1988 purchased Eternity magazine; by the end of that year, Eternity had ceased to exist." (Source: quote from Biblical Discernment Ministries exposé on Norman Vincent Peale.)

Eternity magazine March, 1988 featured a full-page advertisement promoting Fuller Theological Seminary: “Unity in Diversity,” featuring a picture of Lewis B. Smedes, Fuller Professor of Theology & Ethics.


Eternity magazine named Piety and Politics one of the twenty-five best books of 1988. Michael Cromartie was co-editor, with Richard John Neuhaus, of Piety and Politics: Evangelicals and Fundamentalists Confront the World (1987; now in its fifth printing)…He formerly worked as a special assistant to Charles W. Colson [member of the secret CNP] at Prison Fellowship Ministries [an NGO of the UN]. Michael Cromartie is Vice President at the Ethics and Public Policy Center/EPPC directing the Evangelical Studies Project. The Ethics and Public Policy Center was “established in 1976 to clarify and reinforce the bond between the Judeo-Christian moral tradition and domestic and foreign policy issues.”


EPPC was instrumental in the passage of Freedom from Religious Persecution Act which set up the US Commission for Int’l Religious Freedom/USCIRF orchestrated by the globalist Council on Foreign Relations/CFR. Until recently, Elliot Abrams, a member of the CFR, was president of EPPC and served as the first USCIRF Chairman when the commission was first established.


1950s - Eternity favorably reports compromise of

Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse & Dr. Walter Martin

with Liberalism, Pentecostalism & Seventh Day Adventism


Source: Miles J. Stanford


1920s -- Dr. Barnhouse graduated from Princeton Seminary, and was ordained as a Presbyterian minister.  In the late 20s he was installed as pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church, in Philadelphia.  By that time Liberalism had taken over the Denomination, which Dr. Barnhouse forcefully attacked from the inside.


Dr. J. Gresham Machen, as president of Princeton Seminary, along with a number of students, fought Liberalism both in the Seminary and Denomination.  As a result, they left the school in 1929, while remaining in the Denomination.


1936 -- But the Presbytery finally took the initiative, and brought these dissenters to trial: Drs. Machen, Macartney, MacIntire, Ockenga, Woodbridge, Woolley, and others.  They were summarily defrocked and dismissed from the Denomination.  Despite his blistering remonstrance against Presbyterian Liberalism, Dr. Barnhouse was not brought to trial, and he chose not to follow his now deposed friends and colleagues.


Actually, Liberalism didn't mind the Barnhouse rhetoric--they had the man!  He was put to good use as their Exhibit A, their conservative front man.  Despite all that he said and wrote to the contrary, his ordination yoke with the Liberals was a distinct service to their cause for over 25 years--while constituting a distinct disservice to the cause of conservative Christianity.


1954 -- In November Dr. Barnhouse capitulated to his Denomination, and his Philadelphia Presbytery in particular.  Many were astounded by his seemingly sudden surrender.  The Philadelphia Bulletin for November 12, 1954, reported:


A 22-year-old break between the Presbytery of Philadelphia and Dr. Donald Grey Barnhouse has been healed by the latter's recent appearance before the Presbytery expressing the desire for closer fellowship with the alienated group.


Presbytery immediately responded in an open-armed gesture of welcome.... Dr. Barnhouse said, "I have come to realize that some of my personal relationships have suffered because of these past differences, and I now recognize that this has been a mistake.  For my part I want to work in a much closer fellowship with you in the Presbytery.


1956 -- Dr. Barnhouse and the charismatic Dr. Walter Martin entered into "sweet fellowship," as they put it, with the leaders of Seventh-Day Adventism.  As a result there appeared a series of laudatory articles, beginning in the September issue of Eternity magazine.  Dr. Barnhouse wrote, "They are as orthodox on the great fundamentals of the Person of Christ as anyone in the world could be."


Sure enough, the very next month the Adventist monthly, Signs of the Times magazine, came forth with an editorial entitled "Adventists Vindicated!":


As the effect of Dr. Barnhouse's courageous reappraisal of Seventh-Day Adventism, we are convinced that it will not only create a sensation in evangelical circles, but it will lead thousands to restudy the "message" which Seventh-Day Adventism feels called to give to the world in these last days.


This from an anti-security, law-enslaving cult, whose heretical "message" includes: 1) The Sanctuary-investigative judgment; 2) Christ's assumption of a sinful nature; 3) Sabbath-keeping; 4) OT dietary restrictions; 5) Partial atonement at Calvary; 6) Conditional immortality; 7) Soul sleep; and 8) Annihilation of the lost.


Dr. Robert Brinsmead, long-time SDA leader, now deposed, said:


Mrs. Ellen G. White's [SDA founder] intrusion into a supposed word from the Lord has robbed intelligent people of their personhood, imprisoned them in a vast system of legalism, emasculated them spiritually, and made pious zombies out of them.


1958 -- This year witnessed Drs. Barnhouse and Martin entering into "close fellowship" with the Pentecostals.  Eternity for April reported their visit with the leaders of the Assembly of God at their headquarters in Springfield, Missouri, stating:


We found total disagreement of two percent of our doctrine, and absolute agreement of 95 to 98 percent.


1959 -- In the June issue of Eternity Dr. Barnhouse declared:


Karl Barth is in the camp of the true believers even though some of his forms of expression differ from traditional statements of theology.  Much as we reject what some of his followers have made of him, he must be considered as a brother in Christ.


It was at this time that Dr. Norman F. Langford (Secretary of the Board of Christian Education of the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A.) was being mentored by "brother" Barth:


Dr. Barth has shown me that theology can never come to repose in a fixed theology--not even neo-orthodoxy!--but must ever be moving on with no knowledge of where the journey will lead.

Letter of Invitation sent to the “Bridging Through Christ” Gold Lake conference participants…


October 5, 1987

Name withheld

Stanford CA, 94025




We are writing to invite you to join us for the gathering we are hosting at Gold Lake on October 24-27, entitled “Bridging Through Christ.” The conference will be held at Gold Lake Ranch, an executive retreat conference center, educational foundation, and community initiative located in the mountains outside Boulder, Colorado.


We plan to meet in dialogue and prayer, with our daily roles and titles, to form deep personal bonds that will last beyond this weekend. We hope to come out of this meeting with a clearer sense of direction and set a course for further contact and dialogue. The meeting will be structured so that it can change according to the needs and interests of the group. We have asked two close friends, Barbara Marx Hubbard and Doug Coe to serve as co-hosts for this event, as well as Robin’s parents, Paul and Diane Temple. All of them are deeply dedicated and have each, in their own way, become powerful catalysts for bringing people around the globe together in the Spirit of Christ. More about them is enclosed. We are planning to limit the participants to about 30 lay people in order to create the opportunity for deeper communication and sharing.


We are eagerly looking forward to being with you at Gold Lake in October and getting to know you in person. Enclosed is the logistics sheet and registration form which we would appreciate you filling out and returning it [sic] as soon as possible.



Robin and Logan Kline



Note: Summing up the “Bridging for Christ” Gold Lake Conference, Cumbey said that the approach the Christian leaders were taking was:


“’Let’s [identify] the good things [on which we can agree] about the New age Movement and things on which we can agree with New Agers.’ That just happens to be the political agenda of the New Age Movement––the agenda they must implement if they are to make their forced global spiritual change a reality.” [Constance Cumbey’s NEW AGE MONITOR © 1991, JUNE]




Barbara Marx Hubbard who is more and more a recognized spokeswoman for the New Age and has written, among other things, “The Manual for Co-Creation – An Alternative to Armageddon.”


Doug Coe is the inspirational leader behind one of the largest international Christian lay ministries, “The Fellowship” centered in Washington, D.C. The Fellowship is the organization which puts together the Presidential and Congressional Prayer Breakfasts and is dedicated to serving international political leaders of all faiths.


Paul and Diane Temple are both on the Board of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, of which Paul is the Chairman. They have been extremely involved in the New Age, Traditional and Evangelical Christian groups, and are dedicated to bridging the gaps between the three through their own personal lives.


Ed. note: The Temples were also masters of ceremonies at the Soviet/American Citizen’s Summit.


Logan and Robin Kline are the founders of Gold Lake Foundation, an educational center dedicated [to] exploring and developing ideas on the cutting edge of today’s society.




EMNR and CRI do Damage Control after the New Age “Bridging Through Christ”, Gold Lake Conference, 1987…


EMNR’s Gordon Lewis writes Why I Talk to New Agers


Witnessing Tips column of the Christian Research Journal, Summer 1989, page 7.


Dr. Lewis has sometimes been questioned about his practice of holding unpublicized dialogues with New Agers (as though in some way this implies a compromise of the faith). —Elliot Miller, CRI Journal editor.


“In October, 1987, I was invited without restrictions to converse with several local and national New Age leaders at Gold Lake, Colorado. My participation was sponsored neither by Evangelical Ministries to New Religions nor Denver Seminary. As a researcher I accepted the opportunity for firsthand information, and as a Christian I went having put on all the biblical ‘armor’ (Eph. 6:10-18) and having prayed for discernment and opportunities to honor my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ…”

Follow-up Notes from Constance Cumbey on the New Age “Bridging Through Christ” Gold Lake Retreat…


New Age Monitor ~ July 1988 ~ Constance Cumbey


…People I respect such as Pat Matrisciana tell me they were active in the formation of SCP and the Berkeley Christian Coalition. I have tried on numerous occasions to reach Pat Matrisciana to discuss this article and the entire Gold Lake affair. I have been un-successful in obtaining a return call. Perhaps this is because he didn’t get the message, or, perhaps he was traveling. But I have decided it more important that this information be withheld no longer from the Christian community –– not even for reasons personal friendship.
