Rebuilding the Foundations of Fatherhood
Chuck Colson

Why has fatherhood fallen into such low esteem? It's almost fashionable to see fathers as buffoons. Take The Simpsons or Malcolm in the Middle or any other sitcom. Is this a passing fad, or something deeper? Did our rejection of God the Father in the twentieth century change people's impressions of fathers? And when we belittle our human fathers, do we end up belittling God?

One person who believes this is David Lyle Jeffrey of Baylor University. Dr. Jeffrey gave a thought-provoking lecture at a conference where I spoke, hosted in Oxford, England, by the C. S. Lewis Foundation. Jeffrey argues that the downgrading of fatherhood is not just a product of a handful of mediocre sitcoms; it is a significant cultural pattern that can be traced back many years to serious literature.

Samuel Butler's famous novel The Way of All Flesh, published in 1903, is a good example. In the novel, Butler savagely satirized his own father, portraying him as a pompous fool -- a portrayal that made a deep impression on Butler's audience.

It was another well-known novelist, James Joyce, who later took the same kind of father hatred and extended it toward the Catholic faith in which he had been raised. These cultural signposts pointed to something deeper going on. It was made explicit in the writings of Freud, with his theories on the rejection of the father, and Nietzsche, who famously wrote about the death of God. It was no accident that a widespread rebellion against faith was going on at the same time as this rejection of fatherhood. Somewhere in all of this, the idea of the beauty of a father's strong, self-sacrificial love -- an idea expressed by religious poets and thinkers, like Gerard Manley Hopkins and St. Augustine -- was lost.

As Jeffrey explained, we see fathers as symbols of responsibility and authority -- much the same way that we see God. The rebellion against fatherhood is part of a general rebellion against authority and God, and a step toward narcissism:

the desire to stay permanently young, self-absorbed, and carefree. Look at our contemporary society, and you'll see the mess that kind of narcissism has made.

Well, the good news is that there's a counterculture struggling to find a voice today -- a longing for fathers. We saw it in the response of young people around the world toward the fatherly figure of Pope John Paul II, a man who effectively combined compassion with authority. We see it in the success of recent novels like Gilead and Peace Like a River, novels with loving fathers at their core.

And through that longing, we're rediscovering our desire for God, the great Father of all of us.

Jeffrey argues that to rebuild our culture in the twenty-first century, we must recognize and respect the role of fathers. He reminds us of the truth of Augustine's words about fatherhood and the beauty of God: "All things are beautiful because you made them, but you who made all things are inexpressibly more beautiful."

The more we respect our earthly father, the more we recognize the majesty of our heavenly Father. And as we submit to the authority of one, we learn to believe in the authority of the other. The decline of faith and fatherhood went hand-in- hand. To restore one will help restore the other.

Remembrance/Veterans Day"

On Monday, November 11, 1918 at 5 a.m., Germany signed the armistice swiftly ending the First World War. As the news spread, people around the world celebrated with impromptu parades and street parties.

The next year, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11, "a day to be filled with solemn pride". Each year following, November 11 was observed across the United States by veterans' parades, public services, and two minutes of silence to honor the dead.

In 1938 the U.S. Congress passed a bill that officially proclaimed November 11 Armistice Day. However, during and after World War II, Veterans' groups lobbied to make November 11 a date to honor all Americans who had fought in various wars. As a result, Armistice Day was renamed Veterans Day on May 24, 1954.

On November 11, 1921 at 11 a.m. — the eleventh month, eleventh day, eleventh hour — the body of an American Unknown Soldier was lowered into a white marble sarcophagus at Arlington National Cemetery, which came to be known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. In tribute to this symbol of all America's unknown dead, Americans across the country lowered their heads in a moment of silence and all flags were flown at half-mast from sunrise to sunset. These traditions continue on to the present day.

"Remembrance Day: November 11"

Observed on November 11 in Canada, Remembrance Day honors those Canadians and Americans who served in different worldwide conflicts. Each year on November 11 at 11:00 a.m., Canadians lower their heads in a moment of silence as a tribute to those soldiers who fought in various battles throughout the world. In addition, the mysterious red poppy flower— which widely flourished among the graves of the dead in France and Belgium during the First World War — is worn by Canadians as a symbol of respect and remembrance.

You can't tell a vet just by looking:

He is the cop on the beat who spent six months in Saudi Arabia sweating 2 gallons a day making sure the armored personnel carrier didn't run out of fuel.

He is the barroom loudmouth whose behavior is outweighed in the cosmic scales by four hours of unparalleled bravery near the 38th Parallel in Korea.
She is the nurse who fought against futility in Da Nang and went to sleep sobbing every night for two solid years.

He is the POW who left one person and came back another.
He is the drill instructor who has never been in combat but has saved countless lives by turning no-accounts into Marines.

He is the parade-riding legionnaire who pins on his ribbons and medals with a prosthetic hand.
He is the white-haired guy bagging groceries at the supermarket, aggravatingly slow, who helped liberate a Nazi death camp.

A vet is an ordinary and extraordinary human being --- someone who offered his life's vital years in the service of his country.

He is a soldier and a savior and a sword against the darkness, and nothing more than the finest, greatest testimony on behalf of the finest, greatest nation ever known. We will never be able to repay the debt of gratitude we owe.

Dear Howdy,

I am sending to you an article written by Dave Hunt. I think you will find that the time you spend reading it will be time very well spent.

I first heard of Dave Hunt more than 30 years ago. My son David, now 45, was not yet a teen-ager when he bought a book for me for my birthday called DEATH OF A GURU, by Dave Hunt and Robbi Maharaj. I was amazed to see how clearly this man was able to think and discern what was going on in the American culture and in the culture of the Fundamental and Evangelical churches of America. Sadly, the last 30 years has proved Dave Hunt right. In THE DEATH OF A GURU, Dave helped this former Hindu holy man from Trinidad tell his story. So many supernatural things were going on in the life of this Hindu holy man that could never be explained by the laws of natural science. As a Hindu he had amazing powers received from spirits. But these were demon spirits. Through the preaching of the gospel, Mr. Maharaj was converted to Christ. He realized that the American hippy culture was leading Americans and westerners in the direction of the false religions of the east. Americans were using drugs to help them have the kind of out of body experiences he had had without drugs. Then they moved into communes and began playing with the occult and TM, then moved to the eastern USA, then to England, then down into India to sit at the feet of Hindu teachers in their temples. Mr. Maharaj moved first to the eastern USA, and later to England to minister the gospel to these hippies and win as many of them as possible to Christ before they ended up in the Hindu temples of India.

A very few years later I read two more books by Dave Hunt, THE SEDUCTION OF CHRISTIANITY, and BEYOND SEDUCTION.

For about the next 25 years I completely lost track of Dave Hunt, until a couple of times last year when I was driving from my property in Hardee County on Saturday nights when I could pick up a weak powered Christian FM radio station and got in on a part of a program that was called THE BEREAN CALL. It was a talk show interviewing Dave Hunt on current religious matters. Then early this week a friend sent this to me from Dave’s website.

I believe Dave is seeking to speak the truth in love. Some who will read this will question the love part, because Dave is not afraid to name names of respected leaders of the Fundamental and Evangelical churches. Perhaps those who will accuse Dave of a lack of love do so because they themselves have a lack of love. They do not have a love of the truth! In fact I am afraid many Americans today do not even believe there is such a thing as truth. They have bought into the relativism of today voiced by Pilot 2,000 years ago when he pronounced Jesus innocent and sentenced Him to death. “What is truth?” TRUTH Personified was standing right there before him, and he could not recognize Him! John 14:6

An unwillingness to take a stand for truth has brought churches to the place that their point of view is mostly horizontal. They are looking around to see what other respected Christian leaders are doing and saying, and they seem to have lost any spirit of discernment. I think recent events in Jacksonville and Colorado Springs confirm this. Our viewpoint needs to be the vertical one looking to the Lord through a study of His Word. Churches lack and desperately need discernment.

I appreciate the efforts of this administration to fight a war on terror. I am thankful that many plots against our country have been discovered and foiled. But I do not begin to believe we are winning the war when we have not even been willing to recognize who our enemies are! If we as a nation are unwilling to face TRUTH, I fear a future attack on America will overshadow 9/11 and make the twin towers look like it was almost nothing.

I had better shut up so you can read Dave Hunt’s article.


“[The Bereans] . . . searched the scriptures daily, [to see] whether those things were so.” —ACTS 17:11

A Call to Repentance

Dave Hunt

It is now nearly 500 years since October
31, 1517. We need a new Reformation—this
time more biblical and thorough. We are
drowning in “political correctness.” Having changed from a president who couldn’t
define “is,” we have one who persists in
calling Islam “peace” in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary. What
the Bible clearly calls sin is whitewashed
as “alternate” styles of living. Nothing is
wrong, so nothing is right. The church has
joined the world, the gospel has been compromised, and we think God doesn’t care.
Elijah’s words come across 3,000 years of
history to rebuke us as he did Israel:

How long halt ye between two opinions? If
the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal,
then follow him. (1 Ki 18:21)

More than 90 percent of Americans claim
to believe in God. About 80 percent call
themselves Christians. But when asked to
define God, the answers range from “Mother
Earth” to a “higher power.” Even many who
claim to be born again deny that Jesus Christ
is the “only way to God.”About 70 percent of
Americans, 64 percent who call themselves
born again, and 40 percent of self-proclaimed
evangelicals reject the idea of absolute truth.
And most of those who claim to believe in
absolutes have fallen victims to a universal
reluctance to speak the truth.

In a prophetic description of our day,
God warned: “And judgment is turned away
backward, and justice standeth afar off: for
truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter....And he that departeth from evil
maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it,
and it displeased him...” (Is 59:14,15).

Even the church has forgotten that the
God of the Bible is “the God of Abraham,
Isaac, and Jacob” (Ex 3:15,16, and 11 more
times). No matter what one thinks of Jews,
God chose them as a “special people unto
himself, above all people that are upon the
face of the earth” (Dt 7:6), the “apple of His
eye” (Dt 32:10; Lam 2:18; Zec 2:8). He gave them
the land of Canaan “from the river of Egypt
unto...the river Euphrates” (Gn 15:18) to be
their “everlasting possession” (Gn 17:7,8;
1 Chr 16:16-18, etc.), promising that Israel’s latter
end would be better than her beginning (Ezk
36:8-38; 37:21-28, etc.), and that she would never
cease to be a nation (Jer 31:35,36). He declared
that the land of Israel was His land never to

be sold (Lv 25:23) and that all nations would
be punished for dividing His land (Joel 3:2).

This is God’s Word!

World leaders (including professing
Christians, President Bush and Condoleezza
Rice) have openly defied God by dividing
His land, giving most of it to Arabs who
fraudulently call themselves “Palestinians,”
claiming that Israel is occupying their land.
In fact, they have stolen land God gave to
Israel. (See Judgment Day.) Forgotten is God’s
promise to Abraham: “I will bless them that
bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee;
and in thee shall all families of the earth be
blessed” (Gn 12:3). Both the world and the
church have spurned this promised blessing
and are calling God’s curse upon themselves
for their treatment of Israel! We call upon
Western leaders and Muslims to repent of
their atheism, false gods, and rebellion. God
might then have mercy on today’s world as
He did on Nineveh.

Like politicians, religious leaders, too,
defy God. In 2002, D. James Kennedy, R.C.
Sproul, and dozens of others declared that
Israel has no special title to land in the Middle
East, having been replaced by the church.
They claimed that all of God’s “land promises
specific to Israel in the Old Testament were
fulfilled under Joshua.” One trembles at their
defiance of God, who has said: “Behold, the
days come...that they shall no more say, The
LORD liveth, which brought up the children
of Israel out of the land of Egypt; but, the
LORD liveth, which led the seed of the house
of Israel out of the north country, and from all
countries whither I had driven them; and they
shall dwell in their own land” (Jer 23:7,8).

The obvious fulfillment of such promises
today (not in Joshua’s day) rebukes those
who say that the church has replaced Israel!
In the last 60 years, Jews have returned by
the millions to Israel from more than 100
nations. Those who deny God’s promises
to Israel for today need to repent!

It is shocking how many Christian organizations oppose Israel. We have exposed
Bob Finley, ChristianAid Mission’s founder,
with anti-Semitic revision of history, lies
against Israel—even blaming her for Muslim
terrorism and exonerating Islamic murderers
of Israeli women and children. (See Q&A Jan
’03.) The Mennonite Central Committee, having worked in “Palestine” for more than 50
years, has nothing good to say about Israel,
whom it condemns for its “occupation” of
Palestine and for its “58-year-old denial of
fundamental rights for nearly seven million

Palestinian refugees”—a false accusation.

World Vision (WV) is one of the largest
Christian relief and development organizations in the world, with a budget of $1 billion.
WV helps “Palestinians” but not Israel, for
whom it has nothing but criticism. Nearly
3,000 of its 22,500 staff don’t even pretend
to be Christians. Many are Muslims. WV
says, “They share our values.” What does that
mean? Isn’t the gospel of Christ, which alone
brings salvation, the greatest blessing WV
could bring anywhere? But WV doesn’t share
the gospel. How could it? Material aid is
given, but neglected is Christ’s warning that
to gain the whole world and lose one’s soul
is to lose all! World Vision needs to repent or
stop pretending to represent Christ.

Christians seem prone to jump on every
folly invented by “science” for doomsayers and publicity-seekers. Christian leaders
are joining the “global warming” hoax to
support Gaia, or Mother Earth. Yet Earth
was probably far warmer before the flood,
when life flourished as never since; there
was a Medieval Warm Period AD 800-1300;
Earth has been both colder and warmer than
now in the last 100 years; and as recently
as 1940-1975, the warnings were all about
the coming ice age.

A network of evangelical leaders recently
issued an urgent warning about global warming titled, “Climate Change: An Evangelical Call to Action.” It was signed by more
than 20 NAE board members and about 80
other Christian leaders, most of them heads
of Christian colleges, denominations, or
other organizations (among them Timothy
George, Jack Hayford, Duane Litfin, Brian
McLaren, David Neff, Ron Sider, Jim Wallis,
Rick Warren, and Thomas Wang). It echoes
Al Gore’s one-sided film, An Inconvenient
Truth, widely refuted by climatologists.
Those interested should read the speech
delivered by Senator James Inhofe on the
Senate floor September 25, 2006 (http://epw.

Paul warned Timothy (and us today)
that the faith would be opposed by false
“science”: “avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so
called: which some professing have erred
concerning the faith” (1 Tm 6:20,21). The
theories of local flood advocates and theistic
evolutionists have invaded our Christian
colleges, churches, and media. This is false
“science” opposing God’s truth, and it has so
much biblical and scientific evidence against
it that supporters ought to be ashamed and

November 2006 THE BEREAN CALL

repent. The Bible states: “the mountains
were covered...all in whose nostrils was the
breath of life...died....Every living substance
was destroyed which was upon the face of
the ground” (Gn 7:20-23, etc.); “the world that
then was, being overflowed with water, perished” (2 Pt 3:6). Yet John Stott writes, “The
flood seems to have been a comparatively
local—though widespread—disaster,” and
Billy Graham agrees.

Evolution has been thoroughly refuted by
true science. (See In Six Days and In the Beginning in
Resource Pages). Theistic evolution (“Progressive Creationism”) slanders God’s character
by having Him use such a cruel, inefficient,
and tedious method of “creation.” Yet Hugh
Ross writes, “[M]y acceptance of Adam and
Eve as historical is not incompatible with
my belief that several forms of pre-Adamic
‘hominid’seem to have existed for thousands
of years previously....It is conceivable that
God created Adam out of one of them....”

So Christ’s mother may have been
descended from primal slime and soulless
brutes as even John Ankerberg (like Graham and Dobson) apparently believes? The
Bible declares that death entered the world
through Adam’s sin (Rom 5:12), not through
“natural selection,” which filled the earth
with dead bodies before Adam “evolved.”
Those who hold this wicked theory need to
repent on their faces before the Creator!

We have previously referred to the Renovaré Spiritual Formation Bible, touted as
a two-thirds-page ad in Christianity Today
(Jul ’05), next to the masthead declaring
that Billy Graham was the founder and

J.I. Packer one of the Executive Editors. In
its notes, 50 “biblical scholars” declare that
the first 11 chapters of Genesis, foundational
to the entire Bible, came from “Near Eastern
religious narrative and mythology [and] were
reshaped with monotheistic intent”! Yet Jesus
and the apostles referred to Adam and Eve,
the creation, and the flood as historical (Mt
19:4, 24:38; Mk 10:6; 13:19; Lk 17:26-32; Rom 1:20,
5:14; 1 Cor 15:22, 45-47; Col 1:16; 1 Tm 2:13; Heb 1:10,
9:4, 11:7; 1 Pt 3:20; 2 Pt 2:5,6; Jude 1:14, etc.).
The Renovaré “scholars” treat Israel as
replaced by the church, consider the prophets as poets, deny that the Pentateuch was
written by Moses, Isaiah by Isaiah, Daniel
by Daniel, etc. But Jesus and the apostles
treated all of the Bible as inspired of God
(Mt 12:40, 42, 23:35; Lk 24:27, 44,45; Rom 15:4; 2 Tm
3:15-17; 2 Pt 1:19-21, etc.). Renovaré downplays
the powerful Old Testament prophecies,
which are the foundation of the faith and
vital to the salvation of mankind—even
denying that Isaiah 53 foretells Christ’s
sufferings for our sins! The contributors,
endorsers, and those who read this “Bible”
need to fall on their faces and repent for

their mockery of God’s Holy Word!

Christian publishers began to put profits
ahead of sound doctrine, made a lot of money
by giving readers what they wanted instead
of the biblical truth they needed, then sold
out to the world monetarily as they already
had spiritually. Zondervan is now owned
by Fox News and Rupert Murdoch, twice
knighted by the past pope and a member of
the Pontifical Order of St. Gregory the Great.
He has consistently made TV shows aimed at
destroying the family and pursues his godless
ambitions through a vast empire, of which
“Christian publishing” has become one part.
Murdoch published The Purpose-Driven
Life, and Rick Warren has claimed to be his
pastor.1 We don’t have space to name other
major “Christian” publishers who have also
sold out to the world (see TBC Extra Page Aug
’06). It is too late to stop this trend now.

The Roman Catholic Church has been in
apostasy for 1,300 years while persecuting
and killing true Christians. It has never
repented of this evil. Though it proclaims
a false gospel of indulgences, Christ being
sacrificed in a wafer over and over, and
prayers to Mary and the “saints” for salvation, it is now enjoying the support of
leading evangelicals in a way that would
have shocked true Christians only 50 years
ago. Those involved in this seduction of lost
souls need to repent in deep sorrow.

Nearly 50 years ago, Billy Graham
declared, “Anyone who makes a decision
at our meetings is...referred to a local clergyman—Protestant, Catholic or Jewish.”2
For more than 50 years, Billy has affirmed
Roman Catholicism as the true gospel and
has sent Roman Catholics who come forward
at his crusades back to the Catholic churches
they had left. Billy praised John Paul II as a
preacher of the true gospel3 and declared that
he and the Pope agreed on almost everything.
Yet John Paul II (as does his Church), looked
to Mary instead of Christ for salvation. In his
Last Will and Testament of March 6, 1979,
he entrusted “that decisive moment [of death]
to the Mother of Christ and of the Church
[and] of my hope....” His Apostolic Letter of
October 16, 2002, ended thus:

O Blessed Rosary of Mary...our comfort in
the hour of death: yours our final kiss as life
ebbs away...the last word from our lips will be
your sweet name...O Refuge of Sinners....

Richard Land, president of the Southern
Baptists’ Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, praised John Paul II’s “staunch
defense of traditional Christian faith....”4
Pat Robertson enthused, “Pope John Paul II
stands like a his clear enunciation of
the foundational principles of the Christian
faith.”5 Jack Van Impe hailed the Pope as a
staunch defender of the faith and calls the

Catechism of the Catholic Church biblical.

Billy Graham has praised Bishop Fulton
Sheen as the “greatest communicator of the
20th century,”6 Though Sheen preached a false
gospel, and his hope of heaven was that Mary
would let him in because of his 40 pilgrimages
to Marian shrines at Fatima and Lourdes,7
Graham expressed his gratitude to Sheen “for
his ministry and his focus on Christ.”8 When
Sheen died, Billy said, “I...look forward to
our reunion in heaven.”9

J.I. Packer, a signatory to “Evangelicals
and Catholics Together,” who called John
Paul II “a fine Christian man,”10 had already
many years ago declared, “Catholics are
among the most loyal and virile brothers
evangelicals can find these days.”11 As early
as 1992, in The Body, Chuck Colson called for
ecumenical union with Rome. Likewise John
Stott has said, “Evangelicals should join...
in working toward full communion with the
Roman Catholic Church.”12 These men and
many others need to repent for endorsing a
false gospel that has led multitudes to hell.
There are so many false prophets on
radio and TV (most of them on TBN) that
we couldn’t begin to name them all. The
most popular today is Benny Hinn, praised
by evangelical leaders (including Jerry Falwell). Hinn’s false prophecies are too many
to recite. One is enough: on December 31,
1989, claiming that he was in the very throne
room of God, Hinn declared: “The Lord also
tells me...about ’94 or ’95, no later than that,
God will destroy the homosexual community fire....”13 It didn’t happen. Yet
the more false prophecies he utters, the larger
Hinn’s following grows and the louder do
Paul Crouch and his TBN dupes praise him.

Robert Schuller said that if all of his
descendants became Muslims, it would
not bother him. Multitudes who call themselves Christians and are not have heaped
to themselves false teachers who tell them
what they want to hear.

Some of the worst heretics and practitioners of the occult, while claiming to be
Christians, have gotten together in what they
call the Chrysostom Society. It began with
Richard Foster, Calvin Miller, and Karen
Mains, joined later by Eugene Peterson.
“They felt it was really important to just get
together, write together, and believe in each
other as practitioners of a craft to the glory
of God.”14 It is a “craft,” all right.

Truth has been assassinated by political
correctness, the gospel has fallen victim to
“we must not offend other religions,” God is
being mocked, and eternal souls are being
robbed of the salvation that is only in Jesus
Christ. That tragedy prevails in nearly all
churches. Let us weep and repent for the
church, for our country, for ourselves, and
speak the truth in love. TBC

THE BEREAN CALL November 2006


The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the
Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ,
forgiveness without repentance, salvation
without regeneration, politics without God,
heaven without hell.

William Booth, founder of The Salvation
Army, in late 1800s

As you leave the whole burden of your
sin, and rest upon the finished work of
Christ, so leave the whole burden of your
life and service, and rest upon the present
inworking of the Holy Spirit.

Give yourself be led by the Holy
Spirit and go forward praising and at rest,
leaving Him to manage you and your day.
Cultivate the habit...of joyfully depending on
and obeying Him, expecting Him to guide, to
enlighten, to reprove, to teach, to use, and to
do in and with you what He wills.

Count on His working as a fact, entirely
apart from sight or feeling. Only let us
believe in and obey the Holy Spirit as
the Ruler of our lives, and cease from the
burden of trying to manage ourselves; then
shall the fruit of the Spirit appear in us to
the glory of God.

Harold Wildish, British Bible teacher and
missionary to Jamaica, in mid-1900s


QUESTION: What is your opinion of al-
Qaeda’s threats to Pope Benedict XVI
for quoting a Byzantine emperor who
claimed that the teachings of Muhammad were “evil and inhumane” and
who objected to “spreading Islam by
the sword”? Muslims have reacted by
throwing firebombs at churches and
threatening the West: “We will break
up the cross, spill the liquor and impose
head tax, then the only thing acceptable is
a conversion to Islam or be killed by the
sword”! Aren’t they simply confirming
what the pope quoted?

RESPONSE: The Byzantine emperor whom
the pope quoted spoke the truth: the teachings of Muhammad were and still are
“evil and inhumane.” The Qur’an, which
Muhammad claimed he received by revelation from Allah through the angel Gabriel,
has more than 100 verses commanding the
use of violence and slaughter to take over
the world, such as: “Slay the idolaters [i.e.,
all who reject Allah as the only god and
Muhammad as his prophet] wherever ye
find them...besiege them, and prepare for
themeachambush...” (Surah9:5); “OProphet!
Exhort the believers to fight. If there

be of you twenty steadfast they shall
overcome two hundred...a hundred...shall
overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve...”(8:65). “It is not for any Prophet [i.e.,
Muhammad] to have captives until he hath
made slaughter in the land” (8:67-given by
“inspiration” to Muhammad when he needed justifica

tion for beheading captives, as Muslims still do today),
etc. (For further documentation, contact TBC).

It is historical fact, as I document in Judgment Day, that Muhammad not only engaged
in “spreading Islam by the sword” but that to
do so remains a central doctrine and practice
of Islam, as it has demonstrated for nearly
1,400 years. The unchanging goal of this
“religion of peace” is to violently force the
entire world into submission to Islam and
to kill those who refuse to convert. In their
conquests from France to China, Muslims
slaughtered many millions (killing more in
India alone than Hitler killed)!

For Muslims to insist that Islam is a
religion of peace, and to riot, burn, and kill
whenever the truth is exposed, is a travesty
upon history, common sense, and human
dignity. This hypocrisy is of such Himalayan
proportions that it ought to be denounced
by world leaders and media until Muslims
prove their peaceful intentions by renouncing force! There ought to be an international
outcry by government and religious leaders
and the media demanding the removal of
Muslim nations from the United Nations
until they renounce the violence that has
always been and still is an integral part of
Islam! Instead, Western leaders (including
President Bush) grovel before Islam and
apologize for speaking the truth lest Muslims go on more murderous rampages to
prove how peaceful they are.

The pope’s inexcusable apology for
“offending” Muslims with the truth is a further example of how the West continues to be
intimidated by Muslim threats and encourages their hypocritical denial to themselves
and to the world of the horrible truth about
Islam. Muslims ought to be ashamed that
their “god” promises rewards in Paradise for
murdering innocent women and children.

One would be hard pressed to find terrorism anywhere in the world for which Islam
and Muslims are not responsible. Yet they
persist with their incredible lie equating
Islam with peace and threaten anyone who
tells the truth: “If you dare to criticize Islam
as a religion of violence, we will kill you to
prove that it is a religion of peace!”

The shameful fact that Western leaders
from Bush to Blair to Chirac to Billy
Graham and the pope keep on praising
Islam as a religion of peace because of such
threats is a betrayal of their responsibility.
This surrender to Islam’s blackmail will
inevitably result in the complete Islamization

of the Western world with the loss of the
freedoms we hold dear. In fact, Islamization
has almost reached the point of no return in
Europe and especially in Britain—and the
United States is not far behind.

QUESTION: In the Q&A section of TBC
(10/05), you say, “Upon death...He provided for them to go to hell to await their
judgment; but even while awaiting the
final judgment, they experience horrible
torment.” So you have God causing “horrible torment” before judgment. This
makes no sense.

You also claim that “eternal death is
separation from God and all others...”
although Scripture clearly says “...he shall
be tormented with fire and brimstone in
the presence of the holy angels, and in the
presence of the Lamb” (Rev 14:10).

You misunderstood the writer by saying the punishing is the same as the punishment. The punishing has a beginning
and an end. The punishment—death—is

RESPONSE: I did not say that the lost experience “‘horrible torment’ before judgment,”
but before the “final judgment.” The rich man
in hell says he is “tormented in this flame”
—long before the Great White Throne final
judgment. So he was (and still is) tormented
“while awaiting the final judgment.”

Clearly, the damned are in torment
before the final judgment, for which you
accuse God of injustice. Yet God punishes
those still alive before they get to hell. The
Bible has many examples: the flood, Sodom
and Gomorrah, etc.

David said that he could not escape God
even by fleeing to hell (Ps 139:7). But surely
God is not in hell except in the sense of
His omnipresence, which we cannot fully
understand. Nor does “In the presence of the
holy angels, and in the presence of Lamb,”
mean that the damned are not separated
from angels and the Lamb. As for Christ,
He is God and therefore omnipresent.

The wicked are separated from God by
their sins even while alive: “your iniquities have separated between you and your
God...” (Is 59:2). There was separation (“a
great gulf fixed” - Lk 16:26) between Abraham and those in paradise with him, and
those on the other side.

Likewise, those in the Lake of Fire are
certainly separated from the redeemed in
heaven as well as from God and Christ.

I fail to see the difference between
punishment and punishing. Nor is God’s
“punishment” only death, but the “second
death” in the eternal torment of the Lake
of Fire.

November 2006 THE BEREAN CALL

QUESTION: Why does violence by Muslims
increase during the Islamic holy month
of Ramadan? It was during Ramadan
2006 that hundreds of Iraqi police were
poisoned, obviously by Muslims.

RESPONSE: The increased violence was
exactly as expected. We are engaged in
a war to the death—not against terrorists
and extremists who, as President Bush
insists, have “hijacked a peaceful religion,”
but with Islam itself—a fact that the West
refuses to acknowledge. The “politically
correct” lies, so popular in the West, must
be abandoned. We are losing this war and
will continue to do so until the West faces
the truth that our enemy is not terrorism
perpetrated by Muslim “extremists” but the
violent religion of Islam itself!

Ramadan is not, in fact, an Islamic holy
month. Not only is it not “holy,” but it did
not originate with Muhammad and Islam.
Pagan Arabs had observed it for centuries
before Muhammad was born. Arab tribes
had traditionally refrained from fighting one
another at that time. So, why do Muslims
fight and kill during Ramadan?

Muhammad began his violent career in
Medina, then called Yathrib, a city founded
by Jews, in which he killed all of the males
and enslaved the women and children. He
established himself as the Prophet of Islam
with more than 20 murders of those who
opposed him, especially poets, whom the
Qur’an says are inspired by Satan (Surah 26:
221-26 – a special “revelation” from Allah to justify
Muhammad’s murders).

Muhammad’s first three attacks upon
rich caravans passing near Yathrib on their
way to Mecca were a failure. Then he
received another timely “revelation” from
Allah, added to the Qur’an, that Muslims
could fight during Ramadan (Surah 2:217).
His first military success followed. The
caravan he attacked was caught by surprise
during the agreed-upon “time of peace.”
That great success caused Arabs to flock
to Muhammad to get in on the booty by
joining this new religion of “peace” that
allowed fighting during Ramadan!

Muslims still seem to think that Ramadan
is a good time for surprise attacks, as we have
just seen demonstrated in Iraq and other Muslim countries. Shiites blow themselves up in
Sunni mosques as their sure way to paradise,
while Sunnis blow themselves up in Shiite
mosques as their quick way to paradise. Of
course, Sunnis say the attacking Shiites went
to hell, while Shiites say the same of Sunni
suicide bombers who attack them.

Nor is the concept of Muslims killing
Muslims anything new. Three of Muhammad’s first four successors were killed by
fellow Muslims. And as this “religion of

peace” spread, it only got worse. Through the
centuries, hundreds of thousands of Muslims
have been killed by fellow Muslims—exactly
as they are doing to one another today not
only in Iraq but in Afghanistan, Algeria,
Pakistan, and wherever Islam exists.

From 1948 to 1973, there were 80 revolutions in the Islamic world, 30 successful,
including the murder of 22 heads of state.
The Muslim Brotherhood threatened to kill
Egypt’s Nasser and succeeded in assassinating Anwar Sadat, a deed that Arafat
applauded. In 1971, East Pakistan rebelled
against West Pakistan (both Muslim states)
and became Bangladesh. In the eight-year
war between Iran and Iraq, Muslims used
1,000 tons of poison gas against one another
and killed as many as died in World War I.
Literally thousands of young school boys
died walking through mine fields to clear
them for troops with the promise of paradise for becoming “martyrs.” In 1990, we
“pagans” had to rescue Kuwait, SaudiArabia,
and other Muslim nations from Iraqi Muslims
demonstrating Islam’s peacefulness.

Islamic violence during Ramadan began
with Muhammad and is supported in the
Qur’an. There is not one example in the
entire world of Islam ever having brought
peace to anyone anywhere except by killing
or enslaving the opposition!

QUESTION: I must disagree with your
stand on working against abortion and
other widespread American ills. I am
commanded in Scripture to “overcome
evil with good”....I don’t see how I can
refuse an opportunity to work against
evil just because a Muslim or Catholic
may also be doing this work....I agree
that we are not to be unequally yoked
with unbelievers....But I can’t control
who might also want to boycott, march,
or vote as I do in protest of various evils....
I can plant a seed toward their seeing
the Light. And if they never respond, I
am being obedient in protesting evil and
seeking to see that good prevails.

RESPONSE: As I stated in the July 2006
Q&A, abortion is evil and should be
opposed in preaching, writing, and speaking
by Christians.

You have misinterpreted and misapplied Romans 12:21. The context (vv. 17-20)
is all about not acting in revenge against
someone who has personally wronged you:
“Recompense to no man evil for evil...
avenge not yourselves...if thine enemy
hunger, feed him....” This is one way we
are to overcome evil with good.

we are told: “...this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (1 Jn 5:4).
I find neither command nor example in

Scripture calling me to engage in social
action to help unbelievers “overcome” any
evil on this planet.

Neither Christ, the apostles, nor the early
church led or participated in any public
protests against any evil practices, though
evil of all kinds (including abortion) was
rampant throughout the Roman Empire in
their day. Christ commanded us to go into
all the world to preach the gospel, which
calls men to forsake the world and become
citizens of heaven. He told His disciples:
“ are not of the world, but I have chosen
you out of the world” (Jn 15:18-20).

As reasonable as your view sounds from
man’s perspective, I cannot find one verse
in the Bible to support it.

News Alert, 10/14/2006: Former U.S. Rep. Gerry
Studds, the first openly gay person elected to
Congress, died early Saturday at Boston Medical
Center, his husband, Dean Hara, said. Hara, who
married Studds shortly after gay marriage was
legalized in 2004, said Studds was a pioneer who
gave courage to gay people everywhere. “He
gave people of his generation, or my generation,
of future generations, the courage to do whatever
they wanted to do,” he said.

Dear Staff of Berean Call,

I have two friends who are involved with
Theophostic Counseling and I have always
had a check in my spirit concerning this.
After reading your article in the last magazine [Sep ’06], I understand why. Thank you
for your ministry and your faithfulness to
the Word of God. JN (MT)


Thank you so very much for the intense
work you put into What Love Is This? If
your ministry produced only that, it would
have been enough! I am flabbergasted this
(Calvinism) “bad fruit” has stayed at such a
quiet, low profile. Please keep it on a front
burner. JF (NY)

Dear Dave and Tom,

I’ve been wanting to tell you
how much your [radio] program means to
me! I rise early on Saturdays to listen at 7

a.m. and, if I can, again at 7 p.m....I just
love the way you interact with each other.
Sometimes I chuckle at your mannerisms
and how you tease each other! You complement one another so well....I was especially your handling and answers to
“What do you do with a prodigal?” It was so
biblical...practical, and helpful. BA (GA)
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus,

Pure Christianity in print is hard to
come by these days. I am hoping to get
my lifetime (well, at least many years) of
error—Roman Catholicism, Catholic education, trying to transfer to evangelicalism,
with all of that baggage—straightened out.

I’m working on it, and The Berean Call is
a big help. CR (WA)

Dear Dave,

I have been re-reading Judgment Day,
and I get so much out of it. Our Presbyterian Church USA was going to divest from
companies dealing with Israel and even
sent a delegation to talk with Hizbollah!
Your information in the book has been great
to show [people] the true situation in the
Middle East from a biblical perspective. I
cannot thank you enough! DP (IL)

To Dave Hunt and all of TBC,

I weep. So many called are being led
astray by their lust for an experience and a
visual manifestation that they don’t adhere
to the simplicity in Christ....We have an
ecumenical group in prison called Kairos....
They usually start with the Lord’s prayer
or invite Jesus to come join them in their
journey. They try to get through the short
list on the card but are limited in time. They
end by encompassing the room, holding
hands, asking for prayers and sing a song
of Kairos at the end, shouting “yeah, God!”
Kairos doesn’t like you to bring the Word of
God to this function....Don’t want to offend.
I tried to stay so I could reason with them.
Big mistake. Even those “brothers” didn’t
want to hear the truth. DL (prisoner, TX)

Dear Berean Call,

I have been noticing the gradual and subtle decline of discernment within the church
over the past two decades, and it appears
there is no end in sight....Billy Graham is
quoted as saying that he doesn’t believe
that every jot and tittle in the Bible is from
the Lord (Newsweek, 8/14/06); the latest
catalog from Christian Book Distributors
highlights a new book by Robin McGraw
(wife of Dr. Phil, [who] uses psychology,
foul language, and believes homosexuality is OK). And his wife is going to teach
Christians how to live godly lives? Fuller
Seminary is obviously allowing pro-homosexuality speakers to address students in
some classes....No discussion or theological
debate was permitted (World Magazine,
7/8/2006)....We are certainly near the very
end—or the beginning, depending on your
perspective. GM (AZ)


I was shocked at your views on the
rosary and the saints. I cannot see or understand how or why you feel the way you do.
The rosary is a prayer to Mary for her Son.
Catholics don’t pray to Mary, they pray
through Mary to God. This is the mother
of Jesus. Who are you to say what God
accepts as prayer and what He doesn’t?

I hope you have a good answer for Him
when He asks why you were putting down
prayers for His mother....People like you
scare me. You think you talk for God, but
you are professing things you cannot know
about. Anon (IN)

Dear Brother Dave,

Joel Osteen’s book Your Best Life Now is
a trap. The title itself is a trick title; a satanic
play on words, whether Osteen himself
knows it or not (no doubt not). If you have
“your best life now,” you’re not going to
heaven. For those bound for hell, their “best
life” is now. They’ll never have anything
better than this. It’s like that old Twilight
Zone episode about the book written by the
space aliens for the people of Earth titled To
Serve Man, which, when the humans were
trapped on the aliens’ spaceship, bound for
what they thought was a luxurious vacation
on Planet whatever, they discovered was a
cookbook: To Serve Man. MH (TX)

.TBC Notes .

”Judgment Day!” Special

Early in the year, we received an order
from an individual who purchased 350
copies of Dave’s book Judgment Day!
to place in all the libraries in his country. As we seek to get this book into the
hands of as many as possible we would
like to encourage you to consider doing
the same in your own town. We are
repeating the special offer that we ran
in March: Anyone who has previously
purchased a copy of Judgment Day! or
would like to purchase one now at full
price ($22) may also buy one or more
additional copies for only $12 each,
which is the case price!

This valuable book needs to be in
our local public libraries, as well as
church and Christian school libraries.
Other ideas might be prison libraries
or military libraries. To receive your
library copies, call the TBC Order
Department at 1-800-937-6638.

The Berean Call is a nonprofit 501 [c] [3], tax-exempt
corporation registered in the State of Oregon. It is overseen
by an independent board which has full and final authority
over all corporate assets, personnel, and affairs. (11/06)

8 November 2006 TBCEXTRAGONE (OUT OF PRINT) BUT NOT FORGOTTEN . . . As mainstream Christian publishers face increasing pressure from all sides to create
“spiritual” books that sell well in the general market, and as authors themselves try to “cross over” with messages that appeal to nonbelievers,
authors who hold fast to God’s Word are now increasingly censored by publishers whose roster is based on tolerance (in the name of Christian
“love”), political correctness (in the name of “peace”), and the bottom line—instead of “line by line.” In addition, secular conglomerates—such
as Harper-Collins and Random House—continue to snatch up Christian publishing companies as a means to expand their empires, stripping
staff and cross-pollinating products in a swelling marketplace of “spirituality” (FOXFaith for example). In response to this unfortunate para-
digm shift, TBC has launched a publishing effort of its own, releasing new and formerly out-of-print works by Dave, T. A., and other authors.
By God’s grace, our goal is to supply discerning readers and bookstores with biblical resources that are no longer available from mainstream
publishers and suppliers. In fact, we are currently in the process of updating and reissuing a number of books that Dave has written so that they
may once again be made available. (Rest assured, we will inform you of upcoming releases through the newsletter and website!) In the meantime,
we will periodically use this page to present excerpts from some of these valuable works, for your enjoyment and edification.
The Shamanic Connection

University of Texas Health Science Center professor Jeanne
Achterberg points out what we all know: that shamanism is
being embraced in the West. Part of the reason, she says, is
that “something is generally felt to be lacking in the training
and demeanor of the practitioners [psychiatrists].....” She adds
that “shamanism has much to teach us, especially in regard to
that most difficult lesson for those of us in the helping professions: learning to honor the uniqueness of each individual’s
path.” Again, Jesus Christ as the way is rejected.

Hillary Clinton has long promoted shamanism, including
public endorsement. Placing her on its front cover with the
caption THE MOST POWERFUL WOMAN, Time magazine
declared, “Just by being herself, Hillary Rodham Clinton has
redefined the role of First Lady.” Inside was a picture of this
“most powerful woman” (who claims to be a Christian), head
reverently bowed, being “blessed” by a North American
Indian spiritual healer (shaman) in Montana.

The practice of shamanism, which often is called New
Age these days, is intertwined with the environmental
movement....Shamanism involves contacting nonphysical entities in order to gain special knowledge and power.
Robert Vetter, an anthropologist, tells the story of John
Tallhorse, alleged to be the last Comanche medicine man
alive. Having been diagnosed with incurable cancer, and
having spent all of his money on hospital and medical bills,
he “turned to the traditional ways of his people...[and]
resolved to go on a vision quest.”

Alone at night in an isolated place in the mountains, after
fasting all day and having “smoked and prayed four times,
following the ritual belief that tobacco smoke carries one’s
prayers heavenward,” he was approached by something that
terrified him. Tallhorse claims it was the spirit of Auannah
Parker, a famous Comanche war chief, whom he recognized
from his portrait. Says Tallhorse, “He breathed fire on me
and paralyzed me. I was just lying there, dead, until he talked
to me.” He continues:

He looked at me and said, “Son, what are you doing here? Nothing’s

the matter with you.”

I said, “I’m sick.”

He said, “No.... Morning is coming here, son. There’s a man out there

that they say is real sick. They told me to visit him too before I go....

This whole world stands still for just a little while toward morning....

That’s when spirits come out.”

This is an interesting case, because John Tallhorse knew
nothing of the use of visualization (the very heart of shamanism) for meeting a “spirit guide.” The spirit (impersonating
demon) came to him uninvited and unexpected. The surprise
element, as we have seen, is one of the marks of a genuine

experience. What occurred, including the cure of cancer, was
spontaneous and could not have been a hallucination created
by his expectations.

For the shaman, these spirit entities encountered on
the vision quest are connected with the Earth. Eagle Man,
a modern shaman, commends the Native Americans for the
great gifts they allegedly gave to the world as “a result of
their deeply spiritual relationship with nature.” He then adds,
“Getting back to nature will be the key to saving the planet.”

The return to nature is a basic message that comes
through in almost all communications from the occult world.
Marilyn Ferguson says that “the new paradigm sees humankind embedded in nature.” Ramtha channels through JZ
Knight the same message of harmony with nature. It is the
common message of the entities that communicate through
channelers, mediums, Ouija boards, and other occult means.

Down the Primrose Path

Although contact with such entities is claimed universally, their true identity, location, and purpose—whether
“nature spirits,” “space brothers,” “Ascended Masters,”
deceased loved ones, “power animals,” gods and goddesses,
etc.—is always beyond verification. This ought to be disturbing, yet it seems not to be. Medical scientist Andrija
Puharich writes:

Considering that I have had two years of intermittent experience [of

contact with them], I am remarkably ignorant about these beings.

On the other hand I have complete faith in their wisdom and benevolent intentions toward man and living things on earth. My lack of hard
knowledge about them is the kind of deficiency that does not erode
my faith in their essential pursuit of the good, the true, the beautiful
and the just. (Emphasis added)

Such trusting naïveté from a scientist is astounding! Yet
one finds similar trust to be universal regarding the imagined
forces of nature and the spirits that allegedly control those
forces. In contrast, the Bible is rejected, even though its integrity is fully demonstrated internally and externally. The message the Bible brings is not the one mankind wants to hear.

In [Bill Moyers’ television series with Joseph Campbell,
the world-renowned expert on mythology] Campbell referred
to the remarkable “commonality of themes in world myths.”
To Campbell, mythology was “the song of the universe.” The
mystical view that the universe is a living creature has a winsome appeal, but it fails to explain the impersonal violence of
nature’s destructive forces—or man’s moral conscience. In fact,
the evidence overwhelmingly proves that there are evil entities
who are leading mankind down a destructive path of delusion.

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
