    I’ve been enjoying your articles from the sidelines, so to speak. I’m currently researching New Age / New World Order topics in preparation for posting blog articles on Kim Olsen’s site:

    http://kimolsen.wordpress.com/

    I’ve posted a few articles over there.

    I’ve also been posting comments on various blogs including Sadparent’s as I’m aware of the situation with her and her son. Keep up the good work!

    J,
    I am impressed! You are doing a significant thing by exposing lies and lifting up the truth. You are a proclaimer of Truth!

  3. Thank you for posting my article. We need to put the word out to as many as possible. Once again, thank you. Doug McLain, Executive Director Compassionate Christian Ministries

    Dear Truthspeaker,
    Please listen to these short podcasts by MB. What he is stating is delusional and outrageous and aimed at the young.

    Hi there, I was wondering if you have researched “Two House” theology. I do not see if on your list and friends of mine are entering into it bigtime and it concerns me.

    Regards, Irushka.

  10. No, Irushka, I haven’t done any research on “two house” theology, as I never heard of it. I’ll do some digging and see what I can find out.
    thanks!

    I love your articles, they are well thought out, intelligent, and most importantly Biblical sound, so keep up the good work. We need men and women like in the Body of Christ to stand up for truth, and to continue to defend the Gospel and expose error.
    Thank you so very much for the immense work you do on behalf of love and truth for Jesus Christ.

    Jeremy Strang, if everyone would research a matter and NOT just back up a church and pastor like David and Ann on other site want someone to do the work for them, even if you told them they probably won’t believe the truth of what’s exposed. If, ever want to know about pastor, ministry type in
    Name of Church, name of pastor and abused by
    Name of church, name of pastor, people’s negative feedback
    Name of church, name of pastor, controversial articles, just read over 40 hours of abuse regarding IHOP-KC and over 40 hours of Calvary Chapel. Chritians need to get unbrainwashed and think for themselves and start questioning like where the money goes and follow that trail because God doesn’t get any money, nor does the poor. You’re supporting spiritual vampires, spiritual cannibals and habitual liars for the the most part. You’re supporting their business and their philanthropic lifetyle. One day you wake up and you realize that you lived your life for someone else and through someone else and why and what for? Don’t Call Me Brother by Austin Miles exposes how corrupt churches are run. READ YOUR BIBLE. Not to mention there’s a lot of books exposing church abuse keeping the people suppressed and in bondage and coming back for more and how healthy are people and families. It’s not big buildings and big numbers, much of the church is mental illness sorry to say.

    Many Questions Remain in Murder of Grandview Woman

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Police say that they have a confession, but still a lot of unanswered questions in the murder of Bethany Deaton of Grandview.
    According to authorities, Deaton was found dead inside a van on October 30th at Longview Lake. Court documents say that a note was found with Deaton’s body that read, “My name is Bethany Deaton. I chose this evil thing. I did it because I wouldn’t be a real person and what is the point of living if it is too late for that? I wish I had chosen differently a long time ago. I knew it all and refused to listen. Maybe Jesus will still save me.”
    Investigators say that pills were also found near Deaton’s body, but Deaton’s admitted killer, 23-year-old Micah Moore, it was all a cover-up to keep the 27-year-old woman quiet. In a statement to Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies, Moore said that he and Deaton were part of a “religious community” – led by Deaton’s husband, Tyler Deaton – in which the members had sex with each other.
    According to court documents, witnesses told authorities that Tyler Deaton was viewed as a “Spiritual Leader” who had control over the members of the household. A witness also said that three days after Bethany Deaton’s body was found, Tyler Deaton told him that he had a dream in which he killed his wife by suffocating her.
    Tyler Deaton has not been charged with any crimes in connection to his wife’s death.
    In the statement, Moore told detectives Bethany Deaton was being drugged and sexually assaulted by him and several other men at a home in Grandview. Moore said they became afraid that Bethany Deaton would tell her therapist about the abuse, so Moore was told by someone whose name was blacked out in the probable cause statement to kill her.
    Court documents indicate that Bethany Deaton was given the drug Seroquel – a prescription anti-psychotic drug – during the sexual assaults, and it was given to her in a water bottle on the day of her her murder.
    On Friday, authorities searched Moore’s south Kansas City apartment for evidence.
    “When I saw his picture in the paper, I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ve seen that guy somewhere before.’ And like I said, he just lives across the street,” said Darren Martin, neighbor.
    Tyler and Bethany Deaton, along with Micah Moore, were members of the International House of Prayer, or IHOP. Authorities say that IHOP has been very cooperative throughout the investigation.
    On Monday evening, IHOPU president Allen Hood made the following statement on the death of Bethany Deaton:
    “The International House of Prayer University (IHOPU) faculty was saddened by the tragic death of Bethany Leidlein Deaton on October 30. Bethany had attended a 6-month internship at IHOPU in 2009 and went on to become a registered nurse working in a local hospital.
    On November 10, we were shocked when the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office notified us that an IHOPU student by the name of Micah Moore, a man who knew Bethany since their college days in Texas, had been charged with her murder.
    Since Bethany’s death it has come to light that over 5 years ago, both she and Mr. Moore joined an independent, close-knit, religious group in Georgetown, Texas. This religious group of fewer than 20 people was led by Tyler Deaton. They relocated to Kansas City over the last few years and operated under a veil of secrecy.
    This group has always operated independently of the university and it is important to all of us that this group’s secrecy and disturbing religious practices are fully exposed.
    Mr. Deaton led his religious group entirely independently from IHOPU, though he and some of his members were enrolled in our university.
    We have been working closely with the local authorities in their ongoing investigation into Bethany’s death. We continue to fully assist all law enforcement agencies in their efforts to uncover the extent and specifics of this horrific crime.
    We are currently taking all necessary steps to minister to our students and ensure their safety and well-being. As an educational institution built around the priority of prayer, we ask everyone to please join us in praying for Bethany’s family and friends and everyone affected by her tragic and untimely death.
    Due to the ongoing police investigation we have no further comment at this time.”
    Bethany Deaton, who worked as a nurse at Menorah Medical Center and whose obituary described as “brilliant” and a “lover of worship,” was a native of Texas who had married Tyler Deaton in August.
    Moore remains in custody in the Jackson County Jail in lieu of $500,000 cash-only bond.

    have you ever been to IHOP yourself?

  15. No, only watched it on the live stream and listened to many hours of Mike’s teachings. Many who comment here have been there.

  16. Charlene

    Do you consider yourself a cessationist? What denomination do you identify with the most.

    My most recent issue is basically not trusting anyone. I don’t even trust the pastor of the First Baptist Church here in Ketchikan, AK. He appears biblically sound. In fact, I’d say he is biblically sound, but he is not aware of all the deception out there. The women at the church are doing a study based off of Beth Moore’s material.

    I just basically do my own thing. I have 3 children and plan to raise them in the Baptist Church.

    I find that my newest findings of there being so much wrong with the church is nearly detrimental. It’s hard to know where to draw the line.

    What’s your story Truthspeaker?

    -Charlene

  17. Charlene,
    I am not a cessasionist. I believe that the gifts began in the first century are still for today, although most are not understood, or misused. I am very wary of personal prophesy, for example.

    I do not associate with any denomination. We were saved in a holiness pentecostal church, but have long since departed ways with legalism. Our pastor in that church had several affairs and eventually ran off with the secretary :)

    You are right when you say that most pastors lack discernement. The church in america has been infiltrated with much false teaching and you need to use your own head and the leading of the Holy Spirit. The entire “church structure” is unbiblical as far as that goes…. you can not find one church in the new testament that is headed by one man called a pastor.
    Keep your head on … you are on the right track!

    Dear Truthspeaker,
    Some months ago you opened to the blogger-world that you are going to close your work on revealing false teachings as you did for years. I was so happy to find answers to the damaging developments in our churches caused by the WOF-theology. On request of several readers you assured to let your archive open to not losing all the important statements to this subject.

    Some days ago I wanted to look for an article about Bill Johnson but unfortunately I realized that you totally closed your whole archive. I’m really sad. I’m asking you as why you have withdrawn all this stuff from us? Did you drop your former insights because you came to the certainty that what you did was wrong? Would there be another way to get access to your archive? Please excuse my straightforward asking and don’t consider it as a rebuke.
    With fondest regards ……… RonaldCH

  19. Dear Brother Bill, I recently found a flyer about Camp Akiba and the Bible studies. On the back is your marvelous chart connecting Jesus with Jehovah (my settled opinion). May I lay that out as a table maintaining your integrity, to use in a Christology course for a small group of men hungry to understand the Truth? Please advise me. Paul

  20. Hi, I was wondering what happened to Emma’s story about how she left IHOP?

  21. Ronald, I have not changed my views, just felt like the Lord was leading me in another direction.

  22. Shardware99, I removed it from the blog.

  23. shardware99

    Oh…was there any particular reason why?

  24. Sam

    My Dad has been caught up in mysticism and contemplative prayer and I was hoping you could send me in the right direction in exposing these new age practices. It looks like you removed all your blogs exposing these things..
