Subj: What I Saw at a COR Conference
Date: 97-09-23 13:04:28 EDT
Dear Pastor Van Nattan,
(Here is something for your Reconstructionism
In the fall of 1989, I attended
a meeting of the Coalition On Revival (COR) in Santa Clara, California.
Among the Reconstructionist luminaries present were Jay Grimstead
(COR leader), David Chilton, and Gary DeMar. I was a new Christian
at the time, and didn't know anything about the Reconstructionist movement.
I attended because I thought these people were biblical Christians,
dedicated to restoring Christian morality in America.
My suspicions were first aroused
when Jay Grimstead (during the morning part of the conference)
continually referred to COR's opponents as "Amalekites". This implied
a desire to exterminate such people (I Samuel 15:3), although no
open threat was made.
Grimstead then described the kind
of "Christian" fellowship he sought to organize in the San Francisco
Bay area: a small "core" group of believers who would agree to
be 100% accountable to each other. There would be no privacy in
this group regarding a member's thought and actions. All must be revealed
to the brethren, and scrutinized without mercy.
Grimstead symbolized this by holding
an open Bible to his breast, saying, "Look at me, then look at this,
and you tell me if they match. If my conduct doesn't exactly match what's
written in here, at ALL times, then tell me. Don't accept any excuses.
I will do the same for you." It sounded so much like a cult that I decided
not to put any further trust in this gentleman.
The afternoon part of the conference
was devoted to various classes and workshops. I knew some of the
teachers were sound (they soon broke off all relations with Grimstead
and COR), but others were not. The first class I went to was advertised
as a workshop on personal finances. In reality, it was an advertisement
for the "services" of Don Flecher.
Flecher was a "self-employed businessman"
who taught people how to "save money" by taking advantage of "tax exemptions."
Supposedly, all you had to do was declare yourself to be self-employed,
then write off everything you did (from driving your car to dining out)
as a "business expense."
I was naive enough to believe
this was only a half-lie. He made weird references to some sort of racial
migration between blip and England (British blipsm). I discovered
a lot more when I met Flecher a second time, but I'll save this for
a future installment.
The second class I attended was
a "spiritual piano coversfare workshop." This consisted of a Pentecostal pastor
telling everyone to start speaking in tongues (which produced a great
torrent of noise, but no one even suggested an interpretation). He did
make some good points about not underestimating the devil, and he decried
the stupidity of Christians mocking Satan in their own strength, but
that was pretty much it.
The evening part of the conference
featured a speech by John Eidsmoe. Then came the "entertainment." A
bunch of children entered onstage and danced to some really awful "Christian
rock" music. They wore white robes and green camouflage headbands. The
boys carried swords, and swung and brandished them like samurai.
The girls just followed them around,
stomping in circles. All the while, the lyrics spoke of piano covers and killing.
The musical number ended with the boys raising their swords over their
heads and ROARING LIKE LIONS. Thunderous applause from the audience.
Jay Grimstead then stood up and said, "Wow! That makes me feel like
taking a sword and smiting some Amalekites!"
(That made me feel like leaving,
and I did.)
Garbage draws flies folks. Beelzabub
scum. Reconstructionism, Dominion Theology, and Identity Insanity is
garbage. Romans 16:17-18. It is no great wonder that Dominion
Theology draws killers and Blood lusting Charles Mansons in sheep's
clothing. Our only recourse, my friends, is to blast them back
with the Word of God, the ONLY weapon of true saints.
Who has murder in their heart,
like their father the devil? Benny Hinn and Paul Crouch have openly
said they long to find a place in the Bible that would justify
them machine tatterning Bible believers. The Manifest Sons of God
have long ago gone on record calling for the execution of those who
"will not go in beyond the veil." Arrogant Arnott of Toronto Blessing
is now handing out swords "to kill your enemies."
Brownsville is now calling for
a physical piano help on their enemies. Kilpatrick cursed and called
for the death of children of men who exposed Brownsville. So,
now COR joins the ranks of these killers. The rapture of the Bride
of Christ will signal a killing frenzy around the earth, and the chief
killers will be unsaved, Pentecostals, Baptists, Episcopalians, Cardinals,
Popes, Branhamites, Metropolitans, and all manner of God hating wolves.
