Some Resources

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.

Magic Circle

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.

Techniques for casting a circle

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.

100 Prophecies:

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.

REVIEW: Hunger Games – The second installment of a film series in which the whole premise is the killing of teens for entertainment purposes.  This is more of the Corporate Media‘s breathless hyping.  The first film–as well as the book series by Scholastic–was presented to the public in terms one would imagine would be reserved for the curing of cancer.In this review, the actors don’t act; in one case, they “glow.”  The entire piece–and many like it in the Corporate Media–reads like an article for young teen girls from TigerBeat magazine.  Come to think of it, young girls are one of the target audiences.

Toying with Death – Learning to love evil and crave violence

It’s been said that Americans live in a Culture of Death.  The celebration of such a culture is reflected in what we watch, the video games that we play and in our “small talk.”  “Hunger Games” is another reflection of what the movers and shakers of society have chosen to promote.

DECEPTION – This writer often remarks about the deception which envelopes the USA.  It is everywhere in our culture and especially in our media. The reader who does not think that this deception is blanketing him is a  reader already deceived.

One of the enemy’s greatest deceptions is the use of the “Christian” label.  Slap a “CHRISTIAN” label on a book–voila!  What is filled with occult themes is now “Christianized” and thought perfectly safe for consumption.  The same process is used for films, music, DVDs and other media.

How many churches have mindlessly pushed cleverly-packaged media to their members because it carried a “Christian” label?

The list is huge and gotten larger over the last 20 years.  There are plenty of Christians sitting in pews–or chairs depending on where one sits–who argue against the Bible using the deceptions picked up from books, films and/or TV labeled “Christian.”

There are many examples; for now, Harry Potter, The Harbinger and The Circle Maker will do.

Churches in America are under an unrelenting assault.  The weapons used to deliver the enemy’s message are the culture, the music and the ignorance and pride of many of the very ones manning the walls watching.

“Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land, nor yet for the dunghill; but men cast it out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
Luke 14:34-35

The Intolerance of emergent (liberal) Christianity – The author states that he gets emails like the one below.  This writer gets them sometimes also.

I think (no, I know) you need to understand the difference between YOUR doctrine and what it means to be a follower of Christ. It IS possible to be a Christ follower and not believe in Augustine’s theory of original sin. It IS possible to be a Christ follower and not believe in the DOCTRINE Bible inerrancy (I say doctrine because inerrancy has become too loaded stand alone as a word). It is possible to be a Christ follower and disagree with you (or me, or ANYONE) on every single theological issue except that Jesus is God and He died for our sins. Period.

It’s only going to get worse–if you believe the Bible.

One wishes to ask the author of the email, “Is it possible to be a “Christ follower” and be consumed with rage?”  How about “ignorance?”
