"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32

FALSE TEACHINGS, FALSE PEACE and FALSE CHRIST (Part 1 of 3)



A Look at Warren Smith’s Updated Book, “False Christ Coming: Does Anybody Care?”

~~ By James Fire

After picking up Warren Smith’s updated book (formerly known as “Reinventing Jesus Christ”) and giving it a solemn reading, I quickly decided that this would have to become an article here on TTUF.

This book deals heavily with New Age, Emergent and Last Days issues, as well as crucial ones regarding the veracity of Scripture, as opposed to ‘new revelations’ given to such New Agers as Barbara Marx Hubbard, Marianne Williamson and Neale Donald Walsch.

These three form a triad of sorts and represent the foundation of the Global Peace Alliance, or the Peace Alliance (as of 2005) a New Age organization that’s become so powerful, that they are now able to legitimately lobby to become a Cabinet Level office within our Federal Government (endorsed and fully funded) which has some alarming consequences for those of us who ascribe to a literal perspective of the Holy Bible! This prospective branch is situated to become the Department of Peace with Walsch and Williamson spearheading it as the leaders, and New Age followers inundating its ranks.

We discussed the Department of Peace on TTUF before; here is a link in case you missed it:

Introducing: The Department of PEACE?!?

Another book that covers much of this material was the subject of my very first article regarding the Emergent Church, and its predecessor, the New Age Movement as they have infiltrated the church, on FROM the MIND of FIRE, entitled “Triumphant But Tragic Trojan” based on the book Trojan Church, by Greg Reid.

Triumphant But Tragic Trojan

A four part series on TTUF about the Emergent Church and the New Age Movement was also written with Trojan Church and Faith Undone by Roger Oakland (and other sources) as its basis; here is the last part which was further sub-divided into two segments:

The MOTHER of HARLOTS EMERGES - part 4a

The MOTHER of HARLOTS EMERGES - part 4b

Warren Smith’s book gets into more of the political ramifications of how the New Age/Emergent movement will affect us as they gain governmental endorsements and financial backing!
We must also remember that long before Hubbard, Williamson and Walsch were even born, there was another that heard “voices”; not from ‘God’ necessarily but by some of ‘God’s’ Ascended Masters. Her writings and philosophy have likewise been followed by powerful political and financial entities and persons like the U.N., the Rockefeller, Carnegie and Ford Foundations and received incredible endorsements from these.

I’m speaking of Alice Bailey (ALICE BAILEY and The PLAN).

Warren Smith comments: “What has been called New Age is now being presented as New Age/New Gospel/New Spirituality. These ‘new’ teachings are not new at all and have actually been around for centuries in one form or another.
Whether it was ancient Gnosticism, the occult teachings of Helena Blavatsky (1831-1891) and Alice Bailey (1880-1949), or the present day New Age/New Gospel channeling, the bottom line has always been the same – everyone is a ‘part’ of God.”

HEARD FROM ‘GOD’ LATELY? THESE HAVE!

In 1965 Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology, Helen Schucman heard an “inner voice” that instructed her to take dictation on what the voice called “A Course in Miracles.” The voice, identifying itself as ‘Jesus’ told Schucman that the world situation was getting worse, and that a pre-arranged plan of action involving special, select individuals was underway.

Part of that plan was giving A Course in Miracles to the world so people could learn these spiritual truths and thus “a celestial speed-up” of the (spiritual) evolution of man could be realized.

[Note to reader: I happen to have a copy of this book that a friend of mine (who knows I do research into this sort of thing) found at a garage sale. I may well do a separate article on this book to further reveal its deceptions from the biblical perspective of truth.]

While using Christian terminology, this book is a gross replacement of the teachings of the Bible, especially the Gospel and the Person of Jesus Christ: Who He really is, and what His mission was, and is all about.

“All is love, and because God is love, God is therefore in everyone and everything – God who is sinless, and perfect and ‘at one’ with everything” and so by association, so are we.

This is monism (all is one) and panentheism (God is in all), neither of which are supportable by Biblical truth. This book, A Course in Miracles also teaches that Christ is in Jesus, so ‘Christ’ is in everyone, and that the Christ in everyone is their divine connection with God and with each other.

This ‘at-one-ment’ (a perversion of the word atonement) is the key to “undo fear and dispelling the illusion that man is separate from God. It stresses that the healing of the world is dependent upon each person’s (including you and me?!) fulfilling their Atonement function to teach this “oneness” to the world.

Here are some statements as found in Schucman’s book:

“The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself” p. 147
“Is he (Jesus) the Christ? O yes, and so are you.” Manual of this book, p. 87

“When God created you, He made you part of Him.” p. 100
“A slain Jesus has no meaning.” p. 425

“Do not make the pathetic error of ‘clinging to the old rugged cross.’” p. 52
“The mind can make the belief in separation very real and very fearful, and this belief is the ‘devil’.” p. 50

Spin-offs of this book, such as Gerald Jampolsky’s Love is Letting Go of Fear (in the 1980’s) and Marianne Williamson’s own Return to Love (1992) further promoted A Course in Miracles from a rather obscure following of dedicated followers to a wide spread acceptance among those who adhere to a new kind of spirituality, divesting any authority or spiritual significance from the Holy Bible, preferring the ‘new revelation’ instead.

Thanks to Oprah Winfrey’s televised endorsement of Williamson’s book, it made it to the top of the New York Times Bestsellers list (Winfrey herself purchased a thousand copies to give to her television audience).
This false teaching along with its false Christ became familiar and received into millions of American homes. Another Williamson book, Healing the Soul of America (1997), further promoted and expanded on the teachings found in Schucman’s own A Course in Miracles.
With this latest book of hers, the transition into the political arena was accomplished.

Here are some statements made in Williamson’s own book: A Return to Love

“We are holy beings, individual cells in the body of Christ.” p. 32

“Even if he takes another name, even if he takes another face, He is in essence the truth of who we are. Our joined lives form the mystical body of Christ.” p. 296

“It is time for a huge revolution of our understanding of Christic philosophy, and most particularly in our understanding of Jesus. The Christian religion has no monopoly on the Christ, or on Jesus himself. In every generation, we must rediscover truth for ourselves.” P. 46

It was shortly after this, that Williamson joined forces with Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations with God author) to form this Global Renaissance Alliance, and New Age advocates quickly committed to it.
One of those, like Schucman had received her own revelation through an “inner voice”, one Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of The Revelation (anything but a biblically sound book, despite its title!). So what has Barbara Marx Hubbard, self described ‘futurist’ and ‘conscious evolutionist’ heard from ‘God’?

Back in 1966 was when she heard her own “inner voice” in response to a question she asked aloud to God, “What is our story . . . ?”

She fell into a dream-like state and saw a vision of the Earth as a living organism, whose people (including her) comprised its cells; the Earth was in a state of pain, confusion and sorrow and she could sense her ‘oneness’ with it.
The dream accelerated her to the future where the Earth and its people was surrounded by a radiant light, aligned in a “magnetic field of love”, “joyful energy” and healing as people merged their own “inner light” with the bright light that surrounded them and caused the Earth to be ‘born again’.
The voice then told her: “Our story is a birth. It is the birth of humankind as one body. What Christ and all great beings came to Earth to reveal is true. We are one body, born into this universe. GO TELL THE STORY OF OUR BIRTH . . . Barbara.”
From The Revelation, p. 42.

What a bizarre perversion is this notion that all humankind is one body, as though every soul belongs to one another, when in fact, the majority of humanity belong to Satan who is their father, and imprisoned in the kingdom of darkness.

Quite apart from the majority of the population is the body of Christ, obviously not a part of humanity, which the Bible refers to as “the children of disobedience” but distinct and ‘peculiar’, that is, purchased by the blood of the Lamb; belonging not to the world, but to Christ Jesus our LORD! Either we have God as our Father, or we have Satan – we are not all ‘God’s children’. See – There is a distinction between God’s children and the devil’s who are of this world: MATT 13:38; JOHN 1:12; 8:12; 15:18-19; 17:14-16; ROM 12:2; 1 COR 2:12; EPH 2:2; 5:6; COL 3:6; JAMES 4:4; 1 JOHN 2:15-17; 3:10

1 JOHN 3:10 

In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.


ROM 1:17 

For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

EPH 4:13-15 

Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

JOHN 1:12 

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

Christians are distinguished as the BODY of Christ: EPH 4:4-6; COL 3:15

In Matthew’s parables we read about the mustard seed that grows into a shrub (approximately two to three feet in height) but mutates into a tree so large that even the birds of the air (representative of Satan) can lodge in its branches! Never did I imagine that one day a belief would be promoted, like Hubbard’s (and other New Age) writings suggest, that all the world is a body, belonging to ‘God’ or the ‘Christ (-Consciousness)’.

This is a mustard tree of global proportions that will house demonic influences! This is indeed the Whore of Babylon that presumes the title of ‘the church’ in these coming last days!

See – MATT 13:31-32; MARK 4:4, 32; REV 18:2.

Hubbard has received a wide audience, appearing before the UN, and the former Soviet Union, to NASA and other notable groups; she also is a co-founding board member of the World Future Society, and even seriously considered a run for the U.S. presidency (1976) and was placed in nomination for Vice-President at the Democratic National Convention (in San Francisco in 1984).

She is on a first-name basis with many world leaders and other powerful people like her former benefactor, the late Laurence Rockefeller who funded three of her books, and to whom she expressed her thanks for his “intuition about the ‘Christ of the 21st Century”.

In Hubbard’s book The Revelation (subtitled: A Message of Hope for the New Millennium) she states that ‘Christ’ provides specific instructions on “how a united humanity, purposefully partnering with God can literally recreate the future”. The violent scenario as portrayed in the Book of Revelation (the real one, in the Bible!) does not have to occur IF and when humanity WITHOUT EXCEPTION – (emphasis mine) openly declares its ‘oneness’ with him and all creation.

In other words, every single soul in every single home, across every continent in the world must espouse this belief of ‘oneness’ with God and each other if they are to evolve by awakening to their own divinity and to experience this alternative of ‘love and peace’ to the horrors of Revelation; any who refuse “in fear” and remain separate from the world will be seen as a threat because they will in effect, diminish the chances of the world in avoiding such apocalyptic mayhem.

By this criteria justification for labeling people ‘terrorists’ will be employed: that anyone who doesn’t go along with the program of “the Planetary Birth Experience” will ensure that the horrors of Revelation and all of its plagues, wars, judgments, etc. will inevitably take place.

Those who are compliant and cooperative with this ‘Experience’ will evolve from being mere Homo sapiens to Homo universalis, a new species of Universal Humanity as a global community of ‘natural Christs’.

Hubbard warns that no place will be found in this ‘New Jerusalem’ for those who refuse to see themselves and others as part of God, and thus a ‘selection process’ will be conducted whereby those choosing not to evolve will be ‘purified’ or eviscerated one could say, from the Earth; for these are the ‘cancer cells’ in the body that is the Earth and must either be healed or removed from the body.

After the selection process the spirit bodies of the departed individuals will continue to be purified in the spirit realm from their self-centeredness for falsely believing in the illusion that they are separate from God, and not a part of God. This false belief is evil and must be overcome, says the Christ of Hubbard.

If you read these words carefully, what this is talking about is killing off any and all those who refuse to comply with this belief! Of course it will be done lovingly, out of a heart of peace, but we must remember that the Peace Alliance (prelude to the Department of Peace) which Hubbard also belongs to, is increasingly being sanctioned by the Federal government!

Those in need of such purification would include (but perhaps not exclusively) born again Christians who believe themselves to be repentant sinners, turned from self and sin, and become saved through the LORD Jesus Christ.

Another possible scenario will be that if the rapture of the church takes place, the explanation for this stunning event will be that they’ve been “selected” and “purified” because they weren’t worthy of and in accord with the “Planetary Birth Experience”.

How successful will Hubbard be in her agenda to employ this mind set in the people of America and the world? An interesting point of fact is that her home in Santa Barbara is within minutes of Marianne Williamson’s and Oprah Winfrey’s as well.
As Warren Smith rightly observes: “If Oprah does for Hubbard what she did for Williamson, we will all be hearing a lot more about Barbara Marx Hubbard, her Santa Barbara ‘seed group’ project (a working model for other communities [in developing this Planetary Birth Experience]) and the New Age Gospel plans for her ‘Christ’ in the world.”

Some quotes from The Revelation, by ‘the Christ’ of Hubbard:

“My beloved church misunderstood me. It preached the corruptibility of humanity when I came to demonstrate its potential for incorruptibility. It propounded the sinfulness of humanity when I suffered to reveal your godliness . . .” p. 231

“I did not suffer on the cross and rise again on the third day to show you what I could do, but what you can do. Yours is the power. Yours is the glory. That is my message to you!” p. 100

“You were born to be me. You were born to be partners with God.” p. 148
“I cannot ‘return’ until enough of you are attracted and linked.” p. 66


“I did not intend for you to deify me, but to deify yourselves as being at the same stage of evolution as I am.” p. 231
“. . . You all have the same master from within. That master is me, your higher self, the Christ within each of you who is, right now, hearing the same voice . . .” p. 243


“Your triumph over Satan, that is, over the illusion of separation, will be a victory for the universal community.” p. 193
“You should know now that there are no aliens in the universe. They are Sons and Daughters of God at various stages of evolution. Yes, they are different – diverse beyond your present capacity to imagine – but they are not alien.” p. 275


Hubbard’s Christ, on the ‘Selection Process’ from her book, The Revelation:

“Dearly beloved, I approached the crucifixion far more easily than I approach the selection. The crucifixion was done unto my body. The selection will be done unto yours.” p. 197

“The decisive moment of selection has almost come. The judgment of the quick and the dead is about to be made. The end of this phase of evolution is nearly complete.” p. 189

“The ‘second death’ is for those of you who cannot evolve by choice, due to some deeply seated error in your understanding of the nature of reality.” p. 267

“[T]he fundamental regression is self-centeredness, or the illusion that you are separate from God. I ‘make war’ on self-centeredness. It shall surely be overcome. The child must become the adult. Human must become Divine. That is the law.” p. 233

“The surgeon dare leave no cancer in the body when he closes up the wound after a delicate operation. We dare leave no self-centeredness on Earth after the selection process. For when we complete the process of the transformation, all who live on will be empowered to be godlike.” p. 240

“The selection process assures that only the loving will evolve to the stage of co-creator.” p. 303
“The only punishment is your self-exclusion from the joy of new life. The only pity is that you are missing the mark and choosing to die unfulfilled.” p. 195


In part two we will pick up where we left off, and examine the writings of Neale Donald Walsch and his own book, Conversations with God. From there we will look at Benjamin Crème and Maitreya (and other aspects which have already been mentioned in part) and how these key figures and events are helping to shape the new world order; the stage for the last days before the return of the LORD Jesus Christ is being set.

It’s only a matter of time before the play begins. Are you in the audience, or do you intend on ignoring the play altogether and remain in the lobby?
