Be Not Deceived:
The Circle Maker
End Times Deception in a Land short of Discernment
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
THE CIRCLE MAKER
Don’t Try This at Home
The Circle Maker is a book by Mark Batterson. The book was named “Christian Book of the Month” by Books-A-Million in 2013. The Circle Maker also received the world’s stamp of approval: it was a New York Times best-seller.
Batterson is the author of multiple books, including In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Wild Goose Chase, Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity and Soulprint: Discovering Your Divine Destiny. His latest book is entitled The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears [and was released in December 2011.]
Comparing Prayer Circles to God’ Word– Can a revival start within a chalk circle?
“Is the practice of drawing a circle in chalk around specific prayers something we as Christians are supposed to be doing? Ever since Mark Batterson’s popular Circle Maker book began sweeping Christendom, we’ve been warning people against pursuing this non-Christian practice, because it is rooted in the occult, and Jesus very specifically showed us what prayer looks like.”
Readers in an occult forum discuss The Circle Maker: The Man who Blackmailed God.
A magic circle is circle or sphere of space marked out by practitioners of many branches of ritual magic, which they generally believe will contain energy and form a sacred space, or will provide them a form of magical protection, or both. It may be marked physically, drawn in salt or chalk, for example, or merely visualised.
There are many published techniques for casting a circle, and many groups and individuals have their own unique methods. The common feature of these practices is that a boundary is traced around the working area. Some witchcraft traditions say that one must trace around the circle deosil three times.
(AUDIO) The Circle Maker – Circle Maker segment begins at the 32 minute mark.
Sorceries referring to witchcraft, magic, or occult practices used to enchant and deceive are also anticipated in the last days (Revelation 9:21; 18:23; 21:8; Isaiah 47:9-15; Micah 5:10-15). Today, interest in the occult is flourishing.
One of the most disturbing aspects of The Circle Maker being embraced by Christians is that there is now a kids’ version: The Circle Maker for Kids: One Prayer can Change Everything.
A “students’ version’ is also being promoted: The Circle Maker, Student Editiion: Dream Big, Pray Hard, Think Long.
More evidence of the end times apostasy.
More evidence of end time deception.
More evidence of the complete lack of discernment among those carrying the self-applied label of “Christian.”
Not just sad but tragic.
