DECEIVERS EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW: CH. 1 – Jan Markell: Religionist Deceivers Rampant (Part 5) – So Protestants Are Now Catholics?

The following is part five of Jan Markell’s Chapter “Religionist Deceivers Rampant,” an exclusive preview of Terry James’ book “Deceivers: Exposing Evil Seducers & Their Last Days Deception.”


Jan Markell

So Protestants Are Now Catholics? 

In more recent years, I began hearing about mystical Christianity. I learned that many churches, and most of them evangelical churches, were promoting labyrinths, icons, chanting, candles, centering prayer, and contemplative prayer. The latter is a distant relative of Buddhism, so I wondered how much stranger things could get. Protestants began taking on Catholic traditions. They were heralding ancient Catholic mystics. I guess we didn’t need the Reformation. 

Some just called this “the new spirituality,” even though they were tapping into practices that were very old—so old that it went back to the desert fathers and borrowed their practices. I could not believe what I was seeing and reading. 

These folks all talked about a new kind of meditation that sounded quite dangerous. It did not sound like true biblical meditation, but was more aligned with Zen. The Christian college from which I graduated years ago brought in a Buddhist to encourage the students to zone out and meditate, but not on the Bible! 

Men who didn’t have sound theology, such as Dallas Willard, Richard Foster, and Thomas Merton, started being quoted in church pulpits. What was going on? The more I looked into these mystics, the more I trembled for the Church and the sheep who were going to be slaughtered and eaten by wolves. There was just no end to the last-days’ deceptions. 

These mystics thought they could sanctify yoga and decided to call it “Christian yoga.” You can’t put a smiley face on millions of demons who are a part of the yoga experience, but these folks thought you could!

The Tangled Web Of Deceit: Why Muslim Terrorists Are Incapable Of Accepting Peace

Clearly, there can be no negotiations for peace with Palestinian leaders. There can be no two-state solution. There can only be a complete and total victory by Israel over the terror groups that have unanimously vowed to annihilate the nation of Israel. There simply is no room for political optics or posturing for Israel.

The Rejection Of Biblical Truth In The Church Should Be Met With A Trumpet, Not A Whisper

If you read articles that expose false doctrine or rebuke apostasy, it is not done in order to dwell on the negative, spark controversy, or draw attention to our ministries. It is an expression of our love for Jesus and the truth of His Word.

We May Face Mockery, But Jesus Will Reward Our Watchfulness

Everything will change after the Rapture; the Lord will reward our steadfastness in watching for His appearing. His special recognition of our faithfulness will replace the mocking that now rings in our ears.
